While its possible it doesn't seem entirely themely nor plausible. There is an active player base which is much much smaller than the ambient population of red. So you have what, three TERRA agents? Now, granted its been a while since I was in a math class so maybe the little pups can do it better but that ratio seems astronomical to me. 3:58+ million. �And that population is supposed to be lawless. Think the American Wild West, only with the populations of New York, London, and Los Angeles mupltiplied by two and added together. Now think again about there only being three TERRA agents.
And TERRA wants to fine the people they arrest? Ahuh, sure. And maybe I'm looking at this wrong, but isn't the reason TERRA is on RED and not the WJF is because its not economically feasible for the WJF to go where they're basically walking targets?
The only way for this to work would be for there to be more TERRA agents, but again how many do you want there to be?
I remember a while back when it seemed like every third player char was a judge. �It was just silly considering how lawless and uncontrollable the place is supposed to be.
What I'd really like to see, and I'm more than willing to help do this, is more NLM news reports on exactly how lawless red is. More indepth reports on food shortages and riots. Reports on large scale gang warfare. Car theft rings. Stuff like that. Heck, just regular news reports would be a good start.
While my character may not like all the SIC ads someone is placing I think they're great. Kudos to whoever is doing them.
As to the being in jail thing. That's been adressed several times on the boards. Its not that bad if you've got SIC access or a phone. You are still able to earn UE for all those UE whores out there.
My foot is asleep dammit!
Just so you all can read it again (or for the first time if you're a n00b)
