This meeting CANNOT be regarded and enacted as another mortal whinefest, which always happens when they are allowed free reign in conversations. People can't simply demand that wizards be "nice". They don't have to play nice, they don't have to be nice people, and they don't even have to like us. They are players, and can play how they like, within the wizard ruleset. If they want to kill, they can, go for it! If they don't want to play nice personas, they don't have to! But what annoys me about these sort of coversations is people always invest 100% in their paranoias. How do you KNOW wizards aren't playing nice personas? How do you know?! You don't! You don't know that anyone you meet in game, other than a select few, is a mortal at all! Don't assume. The point with our current wizards is not that they are mostly interested in killing, or not even that they're a bunch of gits (which, I hasten to add, I don't think they are). They don't have to be nice. They just have to be THERE, as in visible. They are members of the community the same as us, participating as their wizard characters builds the mystique of the game, it makes it interesting, and makes people hang around. [/quote] I disagree that wizards don't have to be nice, upon making wiz they took on a responsibility to the game and how it runs by accepting the powers of being a wiz - in that respect, they should make more of an effort to be nice towards the players, because they should be the all knowing, sage-like people - they shouldn't simply be invisible hitmen. And it's true - some wizards do play nice persona, but it's not true that we can't say otherwise, the extreme low level of players means that players do know who is who, and who is a stranger. Yes, they aren't going to be spot on 100% of the time, but there would be a huge noticeable difference if wizards were playing active, nice sets. But I will agree with your statement 'they don't have to be nice' - of course they don't, no one can force them to be nice. However, they don't help anyone by being nasty, killing-spree obsessed players. And they have a duty, more so than the players, to help the game. At least in my eyes, because they have more powers than your mortal personal. Because they don't means they should accept blame when the game goes down hill and people blame wizs - because part of that blame is deservedly on their shoulders. [/quote]
