<p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">Qeynos Harbor, “by order of our Queen”</span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span></p><p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">..as I turned the corner the agonizing sounds of the physically tortured woman smashed on my ear drums. I covered my ears for the cries and yells which - coming from a female elf – were too loud to neglect. Tears were beginning to form in my eyes when I came to face the lady with the champion title.  I looked at her, the victim who produced the decibels that had racked my mind. She looked at me without despair, therefore appearing dedicated and vigorous to me. The torturing went on, an arm was raised.  </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span></p><p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">I silently formed the word ‘Why?’ just before she got that lethal blow by the Guards sword. She fell on her knees and started dripping blood into the harbour. Then she answered me: “I have killed so many Freeport citizens, that Queen Antonia herself ordered me to die a thousand deaths to level the statistics a bit.” </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">She fainted, hit the earth and died then and there.  </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span></p><span style="font-size: x-small; font-family: Verdana">I saw her revive and poke the guard another time: “Sir? Please?”     </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"><hr /><p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">Willow Wood, “Helping a friend” </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span></p></span><p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">“You see son, the woman thinks her husbands beard is tickling and annoying during private sessions of mutual understanding. My only problem is that she is my sister and I like her so much that I felt I had to offer her my help. That, ànd she married a plated guard. Bah! Now look at me! Here’s me with my razorblade and that bearded bloke over there. I haven’t reached him enough, yet, to get a single centimetre of his hair! Bah, but I’ll get to it someday!” </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span></p><p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">The warrior stood up again, greeted me and ran towards the short Willow Wood guard on the docks. </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">Razor in hand, arm stretched out he died from the shiny sharp metal of the sword immediately.  </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span></p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">I went on and behind me I heard him leap towards the guard again: “Come here you!!”     </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"><hr /><p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">You see, experience debt runs can very well be an ‘intended’ thing to do! It’s not as bad as it looks. </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">I’m sure it doesn’t only happen on Venekor, the roleplay server (perhaps it’s only explained on Venekor though) or in Qeynos only. It’s Norrath custom!  However some people think it’s an ‘exploit’. It’s probably going to get nerfed.  </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana"> </span></p></span><p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana">Before it’s gone and away, we ask YOU to tell your story! Give the best in-character reasoning behind xp debt running you can think of or even heard in real someday. </span></p>

<p>Is this how the roleplaying servers work, you say dumb things to cover up flawed game mechanics?</p><p> Why not be like... 'I'm a Saiyan... this guard kills me... I'll come back more powerful.... those Freeporters will rue the day I started doing stupid things like attacking my own city's guards.'</p><p> Does saying dumb crap work on other people? You see some guy keeps attacking guards for xp debt... walk over, 'By order of the queen you are to be exiled!' and the guy goes to begin the exile quest... you know, the first story had the girl 'roleplaying' herself... and the queen. Could I roleplay the queen also? What if everyone wants to roleplay the queen? Is the queen schizophrenic or suffering from multiple personalities? Tourette's syndrome? Does everyone just think everyone else is constantly lying?</p><p>Look, maybe I'm a player. Run around telling people I slept with the Queen. People might think I'm lying then, but I'm kind of confused by that guy who keeps jumping guards and trying to shave them. Guy seems kind of crazy. Why not talk to the guard about your sister? Start /saying odd comments... Guard continues to wander around in circles without a word. I mean in the end... only way your getting his beard is to kill him for it. That doesn't seem very pleasant.</p><p>I think the point I'm trying to make is that I think running into guards for xp debt is kind of dumb and there seems no logical way to explain it in roleplaying terms... unless you're character is extremely stupid.</p><p>Krog> Bad guard steal Krog's bananna!</p><p>Guildie> Look krog, I don't think you're getting it back.</p><p>Krog> Krog need Bananna...</p><p>Guildie> He's killed you eighty three times... save yourself the trouble... and the armor.</p><p>Krog> Krog kill guard this time!</p><p>Guildie> That's treason!</p><p>Krog> *psst* Shut up, I want xp debt.</p><p>Krog runs into the guard and dies.</p><p>Opinions/suggestions? Should Krog try again?</p>
