As I'm sure everyone's aware heh. I've been away for a very long time. This is going to continue...but I figured since I owe it to the admin and the players, I'd come and post a few ideas from other Moos that were just...excellent.
1. Recognize: A command used to recognize a person you do not know. An example being.
A young man with black hair is standing here.
"So sir, what's your name?"
A young man with black hair replies coyly, "I am Damarung...who're you?"
recog 'young' Damarung
Damarung, a young man with black hair is standing here.
Booyah, this gets rid of the entire issue with logins...now the name you give is the name they see.
2. Removal of all socials besides pose and emotes. Force the players to actually express their characters more. It seems a harsh way to do things, but shortly, and I mean shortly you'd be writing entire books. I've learned from another Moo this is much more invlolving and so much more roleplay is achieved.
3. Remove the automated combat system when versing PC's and instead introduce a turn based system where a person emotes where their attack is going then rolls to try and attack that bodypart, example being:
Damarung brings his blade over his head and swings heavily, in hopes the blade connects with (random PC's) head.
kill (PC) head
You swing and miss.
(Random PC) jumps to the side, barely dodging Damarung's hefty swing and gripping Damarung by the wrist, brings his fist to swing low for a gutshot.
kill Damarung body
Simple and VERY effective. Think on it.
