'Brb' and RP immunities.

Post  Elgate on Thu Dec 04, 2014 9:16 am

It's always frustrating to come back to the computer to find that your character has been taken advantage of while you're away. Had you been there you might have been able to prevent it, or at least react to it. Taking advantage of an afk character seems like an exploit, but sometimes we do it accidently- like resting near them and getting a 'Known2me' score.

What I'd suggest is that, when in the BrB, afk status (when flashing), the character is:

Fully Immune to Scry.

Cannot be teleported to. (Comes under 'immune to scry')
Cannot be pickpocketed. (Already implemented (?))

Is not affected by 'Known2me'.
Cannot be grifted. 


I'm not sure how immune to make them to spells or damage. Normally you'd choose to go afk in a safe area, and hope that a wild dm doesn't appear to wreak destruction. And killing/attacking an afk char is pretty low, but perhaps making the char immune would prevent accidents.  (Already immune to damage, but what about typed spell effects/ spell effects in general?)

I agree as well as sometimes if you go afk its not in a safe area like maybe you have to use the bathroom suddenly.

Taking advantage is just bad form

Cannot be pickpocketed. - afk mode is cutscene, is it possible to pick pocket a cut scene PC?

Is not affected by 'Known2me'. - added to update

Cannot be grifted. - added to update


Not sure about the others, for one thing teleport destination such as outside the Tivook Inn, still exists if PC is there or not.

Some are portalling to the scry location, so if we make AFK/BRB's not be able to be scryed it would fix it.

Just to clarify, in case anyone didn't know, brb mode already makes you immune to damage. Technically you could activate it when being swarmed by those cranky assassin vines and let them wail on you for 20 minutes with no danger of death.

PC's are portalling to the scry location of someone AFK/BRB, so if we make AFK/BRB's not be able to be scryed, that would fix it.

AFK mode cannot be activated if your PC is under attack.

Very Happy

Good point. We got that one covered.
