I hear a lot of this:

mmrpgs seem so impersonal and tacky

-- Ganbare Goemon (jonathan.william...), December 25th, 2004.

but it doesn't change the fact that when someone suggests something like a player-initialized tax system, where if one is to build property in a city one might have to pay a certain weekly level-based fee, so that the player-elected player-mayor can pay player-volunteer police to protect that property, and the town, while he is offline rather than levelling themselves, and that if this fee were withheld the same city officials might trash his property or, if permadeath, even PK his character, and that cities might offer differing tax rates or none at all and some might be corrupt, all BECAUSE OF THE FUCKING PLAYERS INVOLVED, well it's pretty much exactly the same erotic "whoaaammmmmmm" as the girl in this picture:

Or say because you lived in a low-tax city, or even out in the hills, security might be bad, so you'd want to store your goods in a player-group-guarded warehouse, for a fee, and of course competition would drive the various warehouse to charge more or less, and to spend more or less of that fee on defending the valuables inside. But of course it would all depend on the guards and player bank-staff, who you might not be able to kill, but you just might be able to bribe...

So a player who earned money working a bank job might not earn as many xp as a leveller, BUT they could then afford to buy the services of a hunter who would, if paid, 7/8 kill and then hypnotize high-level mobs, and bring them back, asleep, for the newbie to kill, earning as many if not more xp than his buddy out killing orcs?

OR, and this is stolen from the Dawn FAQ which I'll try and find a link to later, what if you started with only a world? What if cities, instead of being there at the start in some shitty plot, had to be hewn out by the players themselves? Who had first exterminated the local goblins, who had a actual breeding rate that collapsed if a local population were killed too fast, rather than shitty respawning? If players, later, got worried about the total extermination of useful mobgroups near key cities and lobbied to impose caps on their slaying?

(that picture's from Vice btw - the bit beneath says:

"Er, hello? Fuckface? What the fuck are you doing? Turn to your right and start talking and talking and talking and keep talking until you're at her house (remember how it goes: talking... laughing... fucking). What is the matter with the kids today? Dude, she looks like a supermodel cartoon where a squirrel or Pepe le Pew or whatever sees a super-hot female version of whatever he is and he get so excited his eyes pop out of their sockets and go ka-zoing. Why aren't your eyes popping out of your head you dick!?'

and it's brilliant)

i represent the local goblin national front. if you divide the lord's common storehouse by the sword you and your offspring, unto the third and fourth generations, and further, will know the curse of it until your blood pays its wage and is rooted out.
