    Seems like only the role players liked my "insurance" idea...that may be the case here too.

    I want the ability to arrest and be arrested... guard whacking is lame.

    I think they should bring back perma grey too.

    If you are red or perma grey, you can turn yourself in to the authorities, and serve time in Yew Prision.

    While in prision, you lose murder counts in only 5 hours, instead of 40.

    You have to be alive to serve the time, and you cant sneak out of the cell.

    AFK people will be logged out as normal.

    We have all these locations on shard that dont get used...

    Any ideas to enhance this rough idea?

    ya say thieves would be grey all the time UNLESS they are in a disguise or incognito they would be blue but ok to be attacked by anyone all the time, and not the random silly names, it should let you type in a name each time you use the kit or the spell, say having high theif skill with any magery grants you a longer spell duration and to name your self for the duration of the spell. Treat thefts as murders but have a shorter time to clear them off ur name or pay crazy amounts of gold to britania or both.
     
  9. That would be cool to, I just miss the days when(if i steal from someone and get away i was grey to them all the time untill i was killed).the kit though i agree with even more, It takes me at least 15 mins to get a good name.hehe and the fines would be cool even with reds i just think they should pay lots more ,or spend time in YEW jail.

    Agreed!

    You should be able to type a name on disguise kit and incognito. It always bothered me that you couldnt. You should turn BLUE while using the skill, what good is a disguise if you are still freely attackable in town? Not really hiding anything but your name. Someone with high forensics could uncover your name and hue!

    When using shape shifting spell with magery, you should turn grey ( even if you are red ) and assume the proper name of the monster. Nobody will be fooled by a red ogre named Nightstalker. The point is supposed to be that you are disguised, and since you'll be grey, if a blue attacks you while innocently thinking you are a monster, they will not flag criminal.

    Maybe make it so that once attacked it knocks you out of form?

    I dont like that idea, you should be punished for your trickery, and not be able to ride a mount! :D

    I know how well people like my ideas...try this.

    Your opponent kills you and then targets your body with the manacles item.
    Your body is stuck there within four steps of the little manacles stake in the
    ground for one hour, alive or dead... Exocism still works in the Champion
    spawn areas. After one hour being there online, the manacles and its stake
    goes poof along with one murder count. Forensic skill determines who is manacled.

    This never works inside anyone's house.

    I am wondering who should be able to purchase this manacle item.

    This sounds like it could be a good idea. I like where this is going.
    Keep it up, maybe a few will think it over too.

    If you're going to tether people to the floor, why not arrest them and put them in the stockades in town square for an hour? I'm sure people would love to throw vegetables at them! :D Or those new creme pies!

    The problem with this idea is you are taking an hour away from someones playing time against their will. If arrested and tossed into Yew Prision, they can decide if they want to serve the time and clear their name, or sneak out of the cell and carry on with their game experience that they are paying for monthly. I dont believe another player should have the right to take away an hour of another players life. Stat Loss is pretty horrible enough... Kage reminded me again last night! Fifteen minutes of being useless, I could go to my house and decorate or sift through chests and organize. :D

    They would! There would be no need for stealth if you could appear blue and have a different name. That would free up the skill slot. The player in disguise only appears blue, they are still freely attackable, and if attacked, the attacker will not be guard whacked. Players can take their chances and randomly attack blues that they suspect are reds in disguise, or use forensics and be sure before the get whacked themselves for attacking another blue.

    The shard will look like it has many new people on it, and they will be visible, no need to stealth around luna. :D

    Punishment is punishment... who says that you will not get ressurected by your
    friends, who says that you can not do something there? In the stocks you do
    nothing!
    Have you no friends to aid you at that site? You can still move around in a
    limited area...and fight... It is no worse than being thrown into the Arena for
    an hour and take on all comers. Regardless, I suppose looting would kill both
    ideas.
    Time out for equipment is enough delay penalty in this game.

    First the reds complain about not getting that murder count... now you want
    it easy...restained or free to chose to get rid of that so coveted murder count.

    How or why should victums allow it?
    What Justice does the victums get? ... nothing!
    Go back to Blackthorn's conception...the only way to punish people is
    to kill them and loot them dry.

    Atleast with the manacles idea, the victums know where you are?
    Forget about the Forensic skill thing...gzzz ppl are such...

    The victims knew the risk when they came to this shard, it is a part of the game experience. I love not knowing where the danger is, which is why I keep my houses public. If the victims can't deal with death, they are on the wrong server, there are plenty with insurance and Trammel. I don't think the victims really mind what Justice comes to the offender, as I dont think they take their death personal, they have thick skins, and that is why they are on Siege. Siege gives the adrenaline rush that no other shard can give. Your ordinary day chopping lumber in Trammel may be a fight for your life here, and thats what we live for right.... the risk?

    Locking someone in place for an hour against their will will definately make people log out, and possibly cancel their accounts. Why pay for a game you cant play? Killing someone against their will is different, as mentioned above, thats why they are on Siege.

    Why would you have a problem with lowering the murder count removal to 4 or 5 hours while in prision? Did you give the count as a form of justice, or were you role playing? Since the person has to be alive in the cell to get the timer to keep counting down, whats to stop people from killing you while in there? Thats justice, and you can role play it too. :)
