Sweet Song of Springdaleto Everyone

As one of the ginger whingers who started all this off I thought I would add my own two hapenny worth.

I agree with a lot of what Zakath said about the challenge of fighting other players - of course that is one of the attractions and depths of Avalon and one which one day I would like to have a go at. But the greatest attraction of Avalon is that you

choose your path. Pacifist, evil sorceror or fat cat trader, up to you. Those who live by the sword should expect that from time to time they will die by the sword. If / when I start going round jumping people, I expect people to try and jump me b

ack.

Sorry about that.

What several young Avalonians from different cities object to is the systematic bullying of the youngest players who are not being aggressive or plundering other cities.

Plundering modest treasures from those unable to defend themselves is tantamount to cheating.

Of course it is up to the stronger players to defend junior citizens and/or wreak revenge. I assume the Gods can punish those who break either the spirit or the letter of the rules.

But the bullies (and they know who they are) will find that if they carry on like this the newbies will just go somewhere else and then everyone is worse off. Unless the youngsters are abusing their junior position, just pick on someone somewhere nea

r your own size.

It's nothing to do with being Thakrian or being pacifist, animist, sorceror, whatever, it's about giving new players the chance to enjoy the game too.

Sorry again about the incompetent use of the bulletin board.
