Have designated places where you can turn PK on or off...

With PK on you can hurt other players and the other players with PK on can hurt you

With PK off you can't hurt anyone and no one can hurt you.

You would start of with PK off because im sure little noobies don't like getting killed... And perhaps a little indicator above each players head if they have PK on (if you hold a button it shows up, kinda like spar rating) It would also help prevent NPC server crashing because of that stupid shout system, this way less people would DIE! :D

I think you should beable to PK anywhere (it would ruin the experiance if you have a no pk all over the place)

But to stop PKers put up NPC Guards that are friendly to you aslong as you don't PK (Guards would be in major towns)
So if ya pk in town the guards will kick your ass with their uber battle axes

I'm not talking about no PK zones, im talking about "PK on" and "PK off"

With PK on, you can hurt other players, but the other players who also have PK on, can hurt you as well.

But with PK off you can't hurt other players and no players can hurt you.

Of course there would only be a few places to toggle it on or off...

and perhaps those places would have several large guards so people don't *killkillkill "/pkoff"*

PK ON PK OFF!
Sounds like one of those clap clap light commericals LIGHTS ON *CLAP CLAP* LIGHTS OFF!

That would still ruin the experiance...

Run or fight. Your choice. Don't get riled up if someone calls you a "hhealing newbi idiot," they're *****s anyways.

All that does is Stop me from hurting others...

Perhaps you could get blessed by a priest (NPC in church) and then no one could hurt you, but you couldn't hurt them, and then get "un-blessed" somewhere else... Or if you hit someone, you get unblessed?

How NewbieSaint.

It's almost as though Stefan should just make it a command.
newbiesainton; gives the player protection from swords until their first kill
newbiesaintoff; removes newbie saint

How about a bounty system instead? the more people you kill the more your bounty is, if someone kills you and you have a high bounty, they could go back to the "police station" and get a reward. Perhaps a list at the "Police station" showing who is "wanted". Hmm, and guards should attack/arrest anyone with a high bounty, and if you get put in jail, you skills decrese over time... I've been playing too much morrowind... Also, maybe fines could be implemented if you get arrested.

Grim Squeaker:

The system is already quite hostile, otherwise the NPC-Server wouldn't crash as often as it does.
;P

It seems as though only rabid PKers are saying "Keep it as is."

Don't use the "oh it's not rping" excuse. KILLING MINDLESSLY IS NOT RPING!!!

When it's a choice between RPing or having fun, choose fun.

You should be able to pick PK or no PK when you start, and you can only change it in one place per island. And those places are swarming with guards.

I agree 100%. RP is not about killing, it's PKing that prevents effective roleplay from occuring. It's incredibly hard to effectively roleplay when you're trying to hide from idiot PKers.
