Anyone notice from the HoC that it seems like eliminating cheques, or at least eliminating 1 million gold cheques, has gotten consideration? I think this is a bad idea. 1 million gold cheques were a way of UO recognizing that it had grown, that people were out hunting monsters bringing gold in, and that most trade had become between players, not between players and NPCs. When players trade among themselves, the gold stays in the economy, and the game mechanics must reflect this. To eliminate 1 million gold cheques would mostly hurt honest players who worked hard for their money. Cheaters will, I guarantee you, find a way, and prices will remain high. You would merely have put items even further out of the reach of honest players. (If you doubt me on this, remember the illegally made super-cheques from several years back.) To eliminate 1 million gold cheques would be as bad an idea as to put in cheques valued over 1 million gold. At present it's possible to become quite wealthy, and do it honestly to boot, but there are physical limits on how wealthy you can be. To me, that sounds about right. Taxes; gold sinks; property taxes; tithes to the Crown......All of these are much better ideas than trying to go back where we've already been, and hurting honest players in the process. And leave the basics as is. Look at it this way...How much sense does it make to simultaneously try and further limit how much gold you can have, and talk about increasing the amount of gold on monsters? -Galen's player PS: Apologies for this post lacking my normal final proofread/reconsideration. I really need to go, but wanted to put this out there.
