I have an older character that I was thinking that maybe, maybe, I'd like to use again. Maybe. Not sure yet. I'm not a genuine PK and never have been. But, it remains that this character is what you call "perma-red". I deliberately took him red for guild spawning operations - - it is necessary for certain functions if a guild is not faction. This was all before faction gear existed and that push for spawning guilds to be in factions went through. So. Methinks that if you have a character. and his most recently-committed 'murder' becomes aged to one year (happened one year ago) and the character is still in "murderer" status (red)... that character should have access to an option to have all the murders dropped off of it (thereby become blue again) (forged pardons aren't feasible for so-called perma-reds). (I do not know if the system currently knows the date/time of the most recent murder a red has committed, though). If you have a red and he hasn't done a murder for a whole year, one of 2 things is happening. Either you're not using the character at all (most likely) or, you are not using it as a red and doing the things which got the character red in the first place (unlikely that anyone would run around with a red and do this, but possible). In the context of the way uo works today, if someone thinks that red characters are simply the result of evil playerkilling acts and the perma-red status is a means to punish the player: that's an ancient way of thinking and it no longer applies to this thing. Best to let that idea go. The blue that runs up to you in Fel is nearly as likely to kill you as the red, kay.... So yeah, ppl can hate on my suggestion all they like but, I have a red I'm not using for like, ANYTHING, and it's not like I actually PK in the first place. If I could take him back blue, I'd think about maybe using it again. And no I'm not rerolling him as a blue and eating new scrolls and stoning over all the skills because that's just a goofy workaround for a situation that isn't making sense in the first place, kthx. No harm in 'fixing' the actual character since it hasn't been used for jack-anything for so long.
