Are you kidding? Do you really think they would care about some obscure text mud with a player base of less than 200 folks. So the code is available to all those who want it. That can only help ailing RPG company by getting word of mouth out about their world and such. Sue him for that? He should ge...

Personally, I feel that the Warrior should be the ultimate melee damage dealer. Ranger is a Sub-Class of Warrior as is the Paladin/Anti-Paladin. Rogue isn't even that. In all things combat the Warrior should reign supreme. Rangers should be removed and replaced with an Archer class imho.

There seems to be a stigmatism about playing a human character. Certain classes are forced to be human so there are a few out there but on the whole there are very few humans in the game. If you look at warriors there is really no reason to even consider playing a human. Not when you have so many ot...
