Looting Rights Changes

Looting rights that affect both Trammel and Felluca interaction will be changed to the following:

On Trammel:

  • Guildmates will be lootable to each other
  • Thieves' Guild members will be lootable by all
  • Criminal corpses will be lootable by all
  • Murderer corpses will be lootable by all
  • Those that had lawful damage done to them by the looter. Note that this means a member of a warring guild will not be able to loot opposing guild members unless s/he actually did lawful damage to that character.
  • Those in the same faction will not be able to loot each other. The exception to this is if they are in the same party, with looting rights turned on. As long as the deceased character does not receive any lawful damage his faction-mates in the party can loot him. For example, if a character is killed by a monster, a player outside of the faction wars, etc., his faction mates in the party will be able to loot him.

Lawful Damage is defined as consensual combat from enemy guild members, enemy virtue guild members, and enemy faction members. Lawful damage is also justified damage returned by a player against an unlawful aggressor. For example: if player A attacked player B, and neither were in any guilds parties or factions, then player A would be aggressor. Player B could then return the attack which would be called "lawful damage". If player A and Player B were in opposing guilds or factions, then player A's initial attack would be lawful damage.

Only a player with looting rights will be able to open a corpse on Trammel.

On Felluca:

  • Guildmates will be lootable to each other
  • Thieves’ Guild members will be lootable by all
  • Criminals will be lootable by all
  • Murderer corpses will be lootable by all
  • In Fellucca, players will only be able to cut up the corpses of murderers, or if the player is a murderer then they can cut up any corpse.
  • Those lawfully damaged by the looter. Only the players who did lawful damage will be able to loot the corpse without going grey. Note that this means a member of a warring guild will not be able to loot opposing guild members without going grey unless s/he actually did lawful damage to that character.
  • Those in the same faction will be able to loot each other, however, they will criminally flagged if they do so. As in Trammel, the exception to this is if they are in the same party, with looting rights turned on. As long as the deceased character does not receive any lawful damage, his faction-mates in the party can loot him freely. For example, if a character is killed by a monster, a player outside of the faction wars, etc., his faction mates in the party will be able to loot him without getting a criminal flag. However, if a player receives any lawful damage in a faction war (i.e.: from opposing factions) then any faction mate of his will receive a criminal flag if he tries to loot.

Opening a corpse by someone without looting rights will get a warning message that to loot this corpse is a criminal act. To remove items from this corpse without looting rights will result in that looter becoming criminally flagged.


Lockdown Changes

The circumstances under which lockdowns may be “used” will be updated with the following changes:

  • Resources that are used by ‘targeting’ will no longer be useable when locked down. These items include ingots, boards, logs, and shafts.
  • All items that are locked down will be useable only by the owner, co-owner, or friends of the house in which they are locked down, the only exception being that items which have another locked down item on top of them will not be able to be used, or released until the item above them is released.
  • Items which can be used by visitors when locked down are:
    • Purple Books will only be able to be read from when locked down. All others will be able to be edited by visitors.
    • Runebooks will allow visitors to add recall scrolls to them, otherwise they will work as before.
    • Visitors will be able to use locked down dyes in a house.
    • Visitors will be able to use locked down dye tubs is a house. Dye tubs must be unlocked before the color of the dye can be changed.
  • It will no longer be possible to lock down a “stacked” item unless all items beneath it are locked down. Additionally, it will no longer be possible to lock down “valueless” items such as new player clothing and resurrection robes.
