Upon return from hibernation, I noticed how much combat was occurring instead of RP and it reminded me how we never much liked how the only way to prevent someone from taking off on you was to grapple them. Granted, they have a true fear for their life, but we seem to be blowing the opportunity for good roleplaying.
As of right now, fleeing while being aimed at (not in combat) will be as difficult as fleeing during combat. Please start aiming more and grappling less. :)
