Re: People In Glass Vessles Shouldn't Throw Cannonballs
Hairless, let me clear up a misconception:
the remarks about the fat kid smearing chocolate and the bigness of Bigbertha and the chubbiness of Ochubb were sarcastic references to a VO thread started by Amoreth, and were written by Calais (the notice board, not the threads).

Now, let's pretend for a moment that the OMs owned every island, and that there was perfect peace and happiness on Viridian, no wars, no tarting, no nothing.

Some people would be happy. Many others would quit. The competition and the rivalry, the working for a goal, and this positive and negative interaction with other people, is something that a lot of people see as the defining characteristic of this game, as opposed to a lot of goblin hack-and-slasher games.
Do not ask other people to play the game a certain way, in the name of peace and fellowship. If you want peace and fellowship, just build a fleet, conquer every island, and always defend so that no one ever blockades again.

Just a side note: this move by P4P, while understandable, sets a disturbing trend for economics on the ocean. Will every island now raise taxes to 100 percent, leaving only the Ringer islands for entrepeneurs to do business on freely, without political ties? Unfortunately, one can only hope the answer is no, and that this is only a temporary phase in the history of the ocean. Otherwise, the prices for items are about to get a whole lot higher in the coming weeks. Tristan, have Fintan's taxes been raised to 100 percent also?

hoping not.
