There have been an unusual number of lamentations about the present
state of affairs in Avalon. Avalon has always been a balance of
conflicts and protections, aiming to tread the line between allowing
the competitive to thrive but also giving the inevitable casualties
of one battle or another time to regroup, recover (protection) or opt
out for a time (pacifism).
Many will argue that this balance has, for whatever reason, been tipped
against one side too far to be redressed within the current gamesystem.
Rather than impose solutions prematurely, I'll offer this: Those who
feel that they cannot regain an even footing, or those who feel their
enjoyment of Avalon is being unreasonably infringed by the actions of
their persecutors... talk to me. I am always open to suggestions for
improvements to the mechanisms of checks and balances within the game.
Avalon can never reward or bolster the incompetent over the competent in
the ongoing conflict but it must perpetuate that conflict, providing
room for evolution of the competitors and a range of alternatives for
those wishing to tread different paths. With that in mind, address your
observations/suggestions to me directly.
