    On my red I would never allow a strange blue to rez me. That's asking to be rezkilled and see ******** goofspeak such as "L0l0l0l0lLLL!!11"

    But it is true that reds have a hard time finding a rez. (it's kinda too difficult imo actually).

    Question: years back, I went to throw an aid on someone, don't rem if it was to heal or rez, but it was in Tram, a pop-up said i'd be a criminal if I proceeded, what's that about?

    Beneficial acts performed on a red will be considered a criminal action causing the player to turn grey and be attackable or if in town to be able to call guards on them.

    Ok this is how much this game has warped me. When I read about this a month ago I thought of Caspian. Guy Fawkes has also inspired bank transfer day.

    November 5th is not "Guy Fawkes Day" , It's Bonfire Night.

    The same bonfires that used to be lit on the Samhain festival on the 31st of October but moving them to 5th November and celebrating the death of the 'conspirators' was much more palatable to the British establishment.

    Why would Guy Fawkes be a red anyway?

    Bank Sitters, close your big corporate Luna accounts and transfer your bank sitting to the Cove Credit Union.

    Were they grey? I believe you can go grey in tram.

    I feel the need to point out that in fact no fires were moved at all for any reason.

    Samhain was celebrated with bonfires from 31st October through to 5th November.

    The gun powder plot happened on 5th November - guy fawkes night. We light bonfires and have fireworks on this day as a yearly celebration - we also generally put a "guy" on the fire. The bonfires lit for Samhain had/have an entirely different reason and purpose.

    Just to note also that Samhain is a pagan festival and Paganism is far older than either Catholicism or Christianity.

    not sure, think it happened a few times, and one of the times times they were dead, never looked to see what color they were, just figured if in Tram, it would be ok. But come to think about it, I went grey helping. just as Ta_Mira posted: "Beneficial acts performed on a red will be considered a criminal action causing the player to turn grey". Reds in Tram wasn't too uncommon back then - we could loot any corpse too. I lived to tell about it so it's all good. thanks
