    Glad to see everything is up and running again. Like some kind of chilly phoenix.

    I was amazed at all the anger over it coming to the PC. Who did not see that happening? And you bought an XBox 360 for 1 game? uhmm…. okay….

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to getting this and will of course play as a female Shepherd (or whatever the name is.. escapes me at the moment)

    You’re right, its Shepherd. I’ve played through it a couple of times, it is a fantastic game. It also makes me very happy to think that KOTOR 3 is on the way, and since Mass Effect used most of the good ideas from the KOTOR series…3 will be superbly awesome.

    I remember that came out a few months ago, thought it rather sank. If the price has also sunk though, I may well pick it up, it looks quite fun

    Its looking unlikely due to the cost, but more research must still be done. Feel free to try and find budget flights from the UK to anywhere near.

    I think evil people doing good deeds is underrated. It does happen. Like in the churchill example. Someone told me this, it may or may not be true, but I heard Churchill ordered the RAF to bomb the bejeesus out of civilians in Germany. While most people label this as evil, that meant Hitler got rather miffed, stopped bombing our factories, and started to bomb our civilians instead. Militarily a sound move, but very dubious on the moral front. But, people can churn out these examples all day, I like trying to think the other way round, and it works best with fictional characters. If an evil character falls in love/lust with a buxom wench, and that wenches family is then about to be murdered by the evil fellows associates, would the act of stopping it make him eviler? I like to think that even if accidental or selfish, good deeds still count as good deeds. Then of course that evil fellow is very likely to undo his work in another despicable way.

    In that vain of thought, it is much harder to undo bad deeds than undo good ones. A paladin kills someone, outrage and exile. A blackguard saves someone, no one gives a hoot. Interesting thought to sleep on.

    I just think Mule is wrong. He is always wrong. Always.

    But pure evil knows good from evil by looking to what is socially unaccepted and doing them to see others scomplain about it over it. Somone that takes pleasure in seeing others suffer and does it while admitting it’s evil, that is evil.

    What you all said was just metally retarded or psychopathic illnesses. Though still correct, also in the grey area of the black & white. Evil is in the eyes for inatament objects, like dragon figurines aren’t evil like 1 Church lady might say. Evil deeds done by the ignorant or delusional of mind state and conciousness is another thing. (more food for evil in the eye of the observer as well)

    And yeah I agree with T on MS’s lean toward Law vs. Chaos.

    Stupid people can be evil too

    Evil in the real world is crazy and undefinable. Evil in mythical settings is black. I prefer mythical evil.

    Publish PC’s writings in game

    Take out of game writings, that a PC has written on the forums, and make a book or a scroll in game, for other PC’s to find or read. This could be done on an individual basis, with a player approaching a staff memember and submitting their PC’s writings. A good example would be a bard creating a book of poetry that could be read in game by other PC’s. To go a step further, I personally would love to have a new PC find a book of poems from my own character, Portales, who is a poet, then meet him in game allready having read some of his work. There are alot of great tales some of the players and staff have written, that a new player would not see if they didn’t scower the forums for them. This could give them some exposure to people’s work or bios, while rewarding the writer for good RP.

    I reckon this is easy as pie if you want it. Just post somewhere you’d like to publish his works, IC or OOC like this. Perhaps create the books in the toolset, they take very little time. I’d rather not see private bio’s splashed all over the in game world, though.

    The Markshire Awards or the Thrymmies

    An award or reward system based on various things. These could be voted on by the staff, player base or decided by the staff. The awards ideas could include;

    Role player of the year
    DM of the year
    Best PC biography or short story
    Best DM event or plot of the year
    Best new character or new RPer of the year

    Rewards could range from character specific items, XP, a nifty banner in the forums or just bragging rights.

    I don’t think any of these are a particularly good idea, along with “Roleplayer of the month” and other such ideas. It would cause people to try and roleplay as “best” as they can, which I think is a bum concept. There are many different types of RPers, as there are many different characters and such, and not all of them lend themselves well to large scale competitions on who is the “best”. Whoever wins such competitions will be the object of jealousy and contempt for others.

    There are current systems in place to reward ALL roleplayers rather than the select elite, and I think this functions a lot better than competitions.

    The first Dragonlance trilogy by Weis & Hickman. The first four Harry Potters (Especially 3 & 4), and finally Rise of the Horde, a Warcraft novel by Christie Golden. All of them are fantastic reads that make me equally depressed and ecstatic.
