    New VvV Fiction seems to indicate sides are coming!!

    For the Official Fiction http://community.stratics.com/threads/uo-com-an-honorable-vow.325546/#post-2461367

    My Unofficial Quick Summary: [Lord British (LB) has returned to the land for a short time and wanted to visit Felucca. Upon seeing the Chaos first hand, LB asks Dupre to step up and lead an army of Virtue to keep Fel safe (similiar how he charged him to lead the True Britannians at the start of the Faction Wars]. LB seems to have an alterior motive in that doing so may help dispel some of the distrust for Blackthorn that some Sosarians still hold. LB indicates he will depart Sosaria again shortly but will eventually return and he believes in both Blackthorn and Dupre to keep Britannia from Vice in his absence.

    LB and Dupre head to the LBC (Lord British's Castle) after picking up some wicked spirits from the Trinsic pub and kick back a few cold ones celebrating their VvV town win. Formal speech falls aside as the keg empties and shouts of "Owned, Zerged and Newb" can be heard from peasants chillin in the LBC]

    *crosses fingers, hopes sides are coming to VvV*

    If they were going to have real sides it would have launched with it. They already said they scrapped the idea of good and evil because it didn't work. This sounds like just role play by the EM.

    I'll just disagree in that they have said they are continuing to evaluate and add depth, they have added fiction that saying Lord Dupre will lead the Virtue side and good vs evil does indeed work if they make the sides good and evil rather then generic which has always been the issue in the past... is Chaos and Order exactly the same outside of the name, Factions all the same except for name....

    Making sides good and evil is simply its just a matter of doing it.... Joining Vice makes you red while in Fel, counts or no counts, if murder counts are low enough to be blue you can return to tram ruleset (and leaving VvV returns you to your default status based on murder counts), Vice guilds are not allied to each other unless they make the alliance through guild alliance options, Killing other Vice players doesn't give murder counts. Virtue guilds are all green to each other, you can't join Virtue if you are red, killing Virtue players gives murder counts, if player gets enough murder counts, he is immediately removed from Virtue (and his guild) and put into Vice for three days while removal is occuring. A Royal Pardon can only be used by a character once every three months to prevent griefing Virtue but will allow Vice to place spies or double agents into Virtue when they need too.

    Something as simply as that will put evil in Vice and good in Virtue. It is well known you can't code for intention but you can code for consequence of action.
