- Solace has always been a sad little sandbox...but it makes it worse when people change it into a litter box.

- These same people keep sh*tting in it and asking why it smells is the most amusing part. 

this at me bc of my post

- nah , i write this sentiment everytime this subject matter comes up.  I have also retaliate full looted people etc so I'm not going to preach from a pedestal of pristine holy gaming.  

- It is a cycle and I'm sure I've stunk it up myself but not to the extent of some.  Its a solace game culture , you can be "above" it all and never get ahead or compete or decide your level of corruption.

-  Some people will argue "this is not kindergarten .." Or some such thing referencing some hay day of solace where chemosh ruled with an iron fist blah blah blah.  The sad truth is that time is over and the game is available as a sandbox that the dev is kind enough to allow us to run around in.  Some people will spoil this because the owner has not the time or will to babysit some fun killers or cheaters.  So it becomes the Wild West...cheat or be swallowed up.  

- If "all" people we're able to govern themselves we wouldn't have government lol.  So solace is not governed and i dont expect it to be ,i  appreciate the gift of an open "shell" or husk of a game I once loved if nothing else for nostalgia.  I would like to ask some who are reading and maybe have not posted yet to think twice before they ruin what we have left of this game ...even if its just a shadow of its former self but that wont work of course because some people need rules becaus they lack the capacity to govern themselves ... They need limits set on them and they will search endlessly to work around them even when restrictions are in place.

-  So yes, I've always been in favor of looting parameters and inconveniences put in place to limit the ease of full looting.  Get all.corpse ...is just lazy and dumb...it should never have been that easy imo even in the die hard timeframe of pk solace.  Should have to look and type what you want... Jeez there is even a cooldown on requesting items but you can just carry 2 persons worth of belongings with a smal phrase in half a second.

P.s. Anyway its just a small population of a dead game that makes these situations more dramatic and more personal.

i'm ok for looting. although i hardly ever do it. never more than 1 or two things, can only think of one full loot i've ever done. with limited player base and trying to get number back up if even just alittle id be happy with 10-15 people playing. still have nice clan wars etc. but players like a rank 28 cleric of morgion which for all time is op at rank 28, then pretty weak at hero, to sit at 28 for months just to pk and full loot crap eq does't help the game, you can get your rush from the pk but if i was a newbie, i would most likely leave and not return, if i had gos and chromo etc then yea i would expect it to be looted, but to loot and sac wyrming eq and like ogre rings from rank 24 char is just dumb. i want my foes to be strong. i've even enemies gear at lower ranks to help them grow so we can have good fights at at higher ranks. not sure who ravol is but i have good maces when he was 20ish so we could fight and he killed me with that mace i might add.but it was fun. and when he killed me he took one or two things gos and rings i think but i didn't care it was fun and he didn't wanna full loot me bc he had fun fighting someone who was tough rather than kill naked char or wait a week for me to reeq. remember what the fun parts of playing are, and the more people that due it the more people will return and stay. sorry for rant but i still have fun playing and exploring and learning new things all the time.

I think full loot should be more difficult.

There are situation when full loot has it's reasons.

I will describe situations when I full looted without any regrets.

1. My knight was solo ranking in civ area. Thief came to kill me, attacked me, but had to flee. I did not wish to change place to forested, for my own reasons. But he kept coming and fleeing. My learning became much slower, because I did not want to drop health and mana lower then 50%. I killed him and got all his weapons i told him he will get them back later. He became mad, found another weapons and attacked me again. I killed him and warned. He came again. It was really annoying. He often was close to success lagging me with trips, bleeding me etc. So when I killed him third time I full-loot-saced him. To give me hour or two while he reequips.

This is definetly normal situation.

2. When you play alone against enemy clan. You separated one of them (summon, kidnap, etc) - you killed him - you full loot him. Hell. they are three and more on you. You killed one they are two on you. You do not want them become three on you again.

3. When someone full looted-saced you. I do not believe that if you acts kind towards ass-holes they will become better. He broke your nose - broke his neck.

Many others situations have reasons for fast full loot.

Full looting after interesting and balanced combat is a sh*t. And those who do that - sh*theads. And the more they do that, the more sh*t in their heads.

Everyone, eye yourselves in such an example of humility from this knight... and his RP skills.

Zondra, no need to take those things so near to your heart... such sh*t always happened in Solace and you will not change it.
And the eq. is easy to get now because of playerbase:  I think there is not more then 20 players now playing this mud.
Better let us just split on two teams and do a Deathmatch: Full Solamnia VS Takhisis, full Tower VS Heretics, half Solamnia&guardians VS half Chaos&Takhisis and so on...

Welcome back. Solinari has returned, so there shouldn't be such boredom, that was continued last two weeks.

An hour a day would save gear, also knowing couple times longer, hour in a good group exploring goes by fast, i know time is hard to find with family,  i have a 6 4 and 6month old, but if you like the game , we all need "me" time

an hour a day to save gear? Has this changed? Didn't work for me Cheesy

When you are of low rank, items of much higher level then you will vanish much quicker, as part of regulation that tries to stop high ranked chars to gift low ranked chars and make them disproportionally strong for their level.

Back in the days Kiri has changed it so that it depended on number and quality of gear. Don't know if that piece of code is in effect though.
