    I've always assumed it was because shadow jumping requires stealth to activate, so it will not allow you to jump onto a tile that is blocked in all directions so that you cannot enter stealth to jump out should you be revealed or log out and back in in that place. Sure there is the "help stuck" menu, but why not avoid the situation altogether, not everyone has magery and or the regs/lrc to teleport out if they get stuck shadowjumping. Of course, I could be totally wrong, maybe the devs overlooked something when adding ninjitsu. :D

    I realise it's going to take a bit of getting used to, but the sub forum is not a discussion forum, discussions of the topics go in here.
     
  3. you can still activate stealth mode standing still like in the olden days.

    Cool, one of my question got accepted!

    This question came up previously, and we were bouncing possible answers off each other. We had many, but realized only a dev would know.
