To me that's a completely alien viewpoint. I've written both free verse and verse in traditional forms; I prefer verse in traditional forms, because the constraints of rhyme, meter, and stanzaic form challenge and therefore stimulate my imagination. I've always agreed with Robert Frost, who said that writing free verse was like playing tennis with the net down.

I realized that there is a fourth situation that I think telling someone they might not want to create an NPC with the full character generation system (and this one might even be the most common).
  • The poster is attempting to write up a piece of equipment (that isn't unique and is purchased/issued as any other mundane gear) as a character.

Okay, this has officially gone to hell.

For the record, there have been many complaints about people being rude, flaming, or making personal attacks towards others. However, this was a case where everyone seemed to be reporting everyone else -- without exception, every single person who got reported for attacks was also in the process of reporting someone else for the same thing. Yeah, think about that.

So while it's tempting to give the whole lot of ya a few days off, I think the fact that everyone sees themselves as the victim here is a sign that this thing just spiraled out of control across the board and no one realized how deep they were getting sucked in. (Plus, doing that many bans is a PITA.)

So thread closed. Everyone who was arguing is now having an extra close eye kept on them on for . . . well, until we forget about all this, which is probably going to take a week or two. Consider this the Official Warning.

(Oh, and note that Kromm is the mack daddy of the forum proper, so if he decides to overrule me and ban a bunch of ya, so be it. I'm just shutting this damned thing down because it's obviously On Fire.)
