    FELUCCA IS A DANGEROUS LAND!! Lets feel some of that nervous/excitement we all once had when we see that red gate again

    Stat Loss - Chaos-Order

    1. Temporary/Perma Stat Loss
    1st - 10th Death : 0.1 Point Loss
    10th - 20th Death : 0.2 Point Loss
    30th - 50th Death : 0.3 Point Loss
    Perma Stat Loss is a chosen path for a price .01 Point Skill loss On Death for an increased skill cap
    (100-115) (105-120) (110-125) (115-130) (120-135) hard cap of 720 still valid* - makes for less OP templates

    - Your stat loss decays over time...burn those counts baby 40-50 hours - unless perma*
    - Chaos/Order specific armor - not uber leet just something to make it worth it
    - Chaos/Order specific title - "Bane of Chaos" "Divine Member of Order" etc...
    - Chaos/Order driven towns like factions ie: Chaos - FELUCCA -Buc's Den Order: Trammel - Luna
    - Lesser prices on NPC bout goods maybe 40%
    - Revamped Bucs Den
    - Position of Power ( Leader of the Light , Minion of Evil )
    - Cannot receive or give beneficial acts
    - 20 minute time is added ofter initial death before skill loss can occur again
    - Skill loss may be bought down by an NPC for a hefty price - 1mil per (Help the economy)
    - Bounty System (Donate heads to your Affiliating Matriarch for favor points - needed to buy items must be titled Slain By : "you" to avoid trading buying or selling

    .....very raw idea........ideas anyone? :gun: *boom*

    As long as the penalties arnt too steep. Last thing that is needed is to drive people away from pvp style play.

    Given the current events have Dupre returning and plenty happening where Blackthorn used to be, I can't help but wonder if O/C is being considered as part of UO future......

    stat loss is one of the worst things that can happen to pvp. it keeps people out of the fight when there's already limited people to fight.

    Agree, it's something that never should be back in UO

    Why not make it how it was before - i don't recall it ever being that broken other than people not using it. No no extra items, that's a faction thing. Maybe only Chaos/Order shield but that's it. Make sure it's everywhere not just fel...

    I would so get behind this, no bonuses, no stat loss, just picking a side of the fight (but there has to be some sort of "worn" symbol to show your affiliation, since chaos/order shields are allowed to anyone now maybe a choice of tunics or robes similar to current faction robes) Add on a non-decaying kill counter to keep score and could be fun.

    I've had conversations with both Cal and Jeff about this idea after collecting some of my own data and both said it was a possibility but not slated for the current year (Cal in 2011 and Jeff in 2012). I have not yet messaged Mesanna about it, but plan to at some point. Jeff's message to me mentioned the possibility of two options going forward with factions, one of which could be order/chaos (he didn't say what the other was, nor did I ask). However, I'm not quite sure how to view the recent changes to factions in light of that. I would personally love to see a return to O/C as I'm sure many others would.

    I would like to see it in a way, where the more PvP minded in a guild could join Order or Chaos a a kind of military in the guild but the young members and the crafters in the guild would not be forced to join.
    Maybe make it so if a guild choose to allow members to join order, The one who join can be attacked everywhere of Chaos but the Neutral members can only be attacked in outside guard zone. Not all like to be attackable in towns. Could work same way with faction.
