I actually like the entities. If several of Kinsarmar's players don't like them, it's better for the entities to hang out with people who do. Volunteering can suck but the fact that I have been seeing these volunteers at different hours of the day means that there is something going on in the game. This is a good thing for me. I see their presence as a work in progress, because they have to start from somewhere. I know from talking with a couple people that they seem to expect entities to be some kind of fusion of a waiter and their mother to cater to their needs. Not calling any of you out but I feel that we need to give them a break. They are here to have fun too and there are players out there who like entities, I just wish they would share their feedback on the forums rather than discord etc.
@Anette I think what made raiding in midkemia possible was the fact that you couldn't create a giant clot of guards in one room. You had to be strategic about placements because you could only place up to five in a single room. Of course anything past that caused them to start missing the attackers which I had mixed feelings about. Another thing was each particular guard type had a unique role e.g. revealing black wind/phase/masked players, resurrecting dead guards, blocking exits, etc. and that was part of the fun in playing defense.
I feel that in Imperian, a lot of the people that were interested in raids either moved to another mud or have taken a break. Maybe there is a solution we could come up with that would entice players, who may not necessarily be interested in pk 24/7 but would like to get their feet wet once in awhile.
