Home computer you say? It depends on how much cheaper it would be and how much slower too.. as much as I love the game, I'd get very put off when playing if the lag was as bad as dotcom. As for instant points (which btw hasn't even been replied to by the powers that be) if this was to even be considered, some kind of ruling would have to be applied. Is being a protector with 60stam and about the same Str and Dex on average all *that* bad for a short while anyway? I think it's nice to have a little period where, sure you can't cast spells unless you're VERY lucky with the TS, you can run around and enjoy the game, not having to worry about any of the various threats one encounters at later levels. Me thinks we should see what those above think about instant points and to what degree. But yes, excluding the ideas, such as the one above, which could breaker the game a little easier than some of the others. I think that the afore mentioned "other" ideas could be very benefitial to the MUD if it were go to free. It could, of course, be used to supplement as it is now.. I've noticed that people haven't openly stated the amount they'd be able to/willing to donate should that happen.. sure you may wait until the next issue of Muddled-Times but it might be good to get a little handle on the figure a bit earlier.. At the moment, correct me if I'm wrong, but it currently costs ?5 per month and ?2.50 for off-peak? I could easily afford to pay that.. even if I don't intend to play much due to studying.. I'd at least consider it a charitable donation to a good cause. One other idea just came to me, it may be silly but I understand that all of the wizards have their characters backed-up incase there was a wipe or a crash. One thing that people may be willing to pay for is to have their accounts or a character on the said back-up disk. Just a thought. I think I've babbled on enough :) - Nathe
