Deep down I really admire how far EVE Online has come, a video of the scanning tool in the game blew me away. But I still refuse to play it again until they change some basic paradigms in the game, chief among them, losing hard earned possession because some punk is able to attack me without my accepting a challenge to duel them.

Yeah, yeah, sure I know that the entire economic model would fall apart if they changed it, so I’ll try and come up with an alternative to the computer game, using old-school RPG rules and pen and paper combined with electronic tools like email, wiki’s, spreadsheets and graphic programs to develop an online database of information which can be used by people to imagine themselves into a persistent universe.

Hail Gary Gygax!
