This is a tangent, but even something as commonplace as eating and drinking is only as boring and scriptable as you let it be.

If I am, for example, another player playing a dark wizard character who can, with a spell, befoul all of your food as you sleep, days from civilization, the fact that you need to eat regularly or suffer consequences has ceased to be in-game "busy work" and has become something interesting.  Maybe I'm a thief who can steal your water.  Maybe I'm a priest of a god of gluttony and excess who can curse you to only be able to eat the finest gourmet foods until the curse is removed.  Suddenly, the need to eat and drink is a framework that allows many interesting player abilities.
I agree, Disciple.  There are times that I'd like nothing more than poison the wells of the local villages out around Naztari's territory, just out of sheer spite.  (I won't - I'd have to fire myself.)

Spazmatic et al - forgive a short delay in responding to your inquisitive posts. It might be more appropriate to close this thread in Announcements and open a new one in a more appropriate forum panel, though.  It was, after all, simply an announcement.

I agree. I wouldn't have replied at all to begin with if the thread hadn't gotten quite substantial (page plus) already. And, yeah, it's an announcement, so, yeah.

Maybe a mod is reading this and would be kind enough to move the thread? Or, most of the posts?
