DEAD? Who to call?

Postby Segarion » Aug 24, 2003 (12:49 am)

Well, worst thing to happen is to die and have no one around to see you die. Basically, if that happens, no one will know your dead unless they are looking for you or they did see you die or someone walks by you by chance.

Anyway, I was dead and thinking in my ghostly form, "why the hell can't I just wander around detached from my physical body?" Makes sense since there is the wandering ghost themes out there. Besides making this a way to get help for yourself, it is also an RPing opportunity as well.

That's my 2 cents for today on the after life.

Hmm...Interesting idea. I'll think about it and discuss it with the rest of the staff.

Solution for that would be to make it possible for pets to run for help...say to STS and tell everyone that their master is dead and needs help.

Good idea, But if as he says he died when no one is around I assume he logged and was needing to call for help later, or after someone else logged on. Trouble is I seem to have trouble whistling for my wolf when I am dead! :shock:

Well perhaps if your pet could get you help, you would have it at the ready.

I personally like the ghostly form idea more than the pet idea. The pet idea seems a little Lassie-ish, Timmy stuck in the well kinda thing....Until something is done I personally would just get the AIM of a cleric, a lot of people do that to me when I first log on the tell me they are dead. Seems to have worked so far.

But I'd much prefer to use the messanger as a last resort as opposed to an 'In character' thing like the ghostly visit or the 'Frantic Companion' to do the Lassie thing - like in DR where the fams go after the nearest or random cleric/raiser or be able to tell em to 'Find Timmy!" or in my case have my wolf arrive with an empty Keg :cry: - then you'd know i was in trouble!

oh i dunno the animal thing is alright but that would make it here alot closer to there and there is already stuff like it is over there why cant we just do the ghostly thing it is nuthin like any game ive been to. not to mention i think a "Argathian has sucumbed to his injuries" and a tell griffin to find arg aint that hard any way. but hey that me, and yes i do have a raiser and i have no probs doin it that way either.

Hmm, like Gaeldros said it is an interesting idea. My question is, how could this be used in role-play? Besides scaring the pants off people? How far should the ghost/specter be able to travel? I also like the pet idea. Yes, it has been done before though.

Personally I like both ideas but I have my own.Why can't we use think when we're dead? We can talk so why can't we use think? Well at least it's something to think about.. :wink:

I wouldn't mind seeing bonded mates 'know' something has happened to their better? half at least. And perhaps at least one dying thought (think) might be fun and useful to have too!

You hear the mind of Vladim thinking "That troll made me spill my drink! Help!" :cry:
