As of today we have begin the duellist experiment. Duellist status is now
available to all those Avalonians who wish to seek partial protection from
its somewhat restrictive, but not entirely pacifist nature. Duellists are
able to fight and use their skills freely, save where the duellist status
may give unfair advantage against those who are restricted from attack and
yet affected by duellist action. See HELP DUELLISTS for further information,
and type DDW to see a list of those duellists presently visible in the land.
Feel free to ask me any questions about this directly, make comments,
criticisms and suggestions either to me when you see me around or via
e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. No doubt we will have some teething
problems with abuses and workarounds over the next week but these will
be address promptly and, ultimately, we will give Duellist Status a few
weeks of proper testing once we're satisfied any loopholes are closed to
judge its impact on the land and its inhabitants. Thus, keep your
feedback coming thick and fast.
