Well hey, at least they're getting educated, right? This is how the Black Plague got so powerful.

I'm guessing there are 2 types of it:

Bubonic- passed from person to person, kills in a matter of days.

Pneumonic- Passes through the air, person will die in a matter of hours!

Now those definitions above fit the black plagues of 1348. I think this is good for the kids, let alone frustrating. Everyone can use a history lesson.

You know the program writers have done a good job when the game start to mimic the real world.

Partially true.
What happens is, persistant worlds, that allow char to "make" or "Invent" new items, train pets, make clothes, ect....

The programmers have actually opened up a way for players to actually write thier own programs but hidden behind a pretty and unusual set of tools.

Inovative people find ways of using those tools in ways never thought of.


Persistant worlds can be fun, I've played a couple.
Not much for the Role PLying aspects of it, but I've had alot of fun and met lots of good people in em.
