Thread: Mounts - Boycott or Embrace?

  1. Default Mounts - Boycott or Embrace?

    With the steady climb toward item min/maxing through Dusk and other events; it was bound to happen that a new “it” item would make it’s way toward the surface.

    I think mounts will be just-as if not more wanted/integral to one’s character as a person’s primary weapon. I think they will have massive mechanical implications (ala fighting on horseback, the charge CMAN, and them even being able to drag a stunned/prone character from room to room).

    Couple that with the fact that mounts will probably be ultra zesty/scriptable with the pokemon-esque factor of raising/training them to unlock new abilities and you have an item that will be weapons-grade addictive.

    But will this be ‘good’ for our community? Knowing what we know about GemStone players can something like this be harmful to us even on a personal level? Many of us can’t seem to control ourGemStone fix and some I know personally on here it’s beginning to affect their personal lives.

    Overall, it seems like a whole new avenue for them to take our money but I can see it being highly entertainibg for those of us who can afford it.

    Thoughts?

    This is stupid. You're stupid. Show some self control and don't buy the new shiny thing. It's that easy.

    I agree with everyone that this is an awesome piece of development and positive change, don’t get me wrong here.

    But I’m just thinking about social responsibilty(you know what I mean?) You KNOW there’s going to be at least a couple of tragic stories stemming from this. A rainbow colored unicorn mount for a week of starving kids kind of tragic. I mean fucked up levels of tragic.

    Well I guess we can say we at least broached the topic even if none of you care about each other.
