Magic is ridiculously overpowered in RSRP by the percentage of people that use it. Such a large majority of people use it and use it incorrectly, and by "incorrectly" I mean that they bend lore in every which possible direction to enhance their mind-boggling abilities in the art that is magic.

"Art" is a term that I do not put lightly on this form of combat, healing, illusion, transportation and warping of the laws of physics. People "train" in magic half the time, only alluding to the time spent as a massive amount when in reality they've only brushed the surface of a profound role-play meant to respectively earn their character some amount of stripes in the field so that it's -- in the very slightest -- realistic to use what magic they do use.

Teleportation is a prospect I don't like discussing in role-play at all, because nearly everyone uses it even if their character can't use magic. What happened to the fear of a power that could end your life should you make a slight mistake in charging a rune? Perhaps you use the wrong runes in a spell by accident and you perform the wrong attack, or it backfires and injures you? What about the poor, lower-class individuals that do not have access to such a high level of economic prosperity and in thus can't afford these already-difficult to obtain runes? They're not in massive demand in RuneScape, only by the guilds, the few magicians that exist and The Adventurer.

Teleportation also detracts from possible role-play. "Oh, I need to get from Ardougne to Varrock? Let's just skip the process of riding a charter ship and just zip there in a flash!" Smash a tele-tab or break some runes for half a second, twiddle your thumbs and you just flew from the top of Ardougne castle and now you're walking into Varrock palace. It's ridiculous. You can't have fun travel RP when everyone is just zipping around, and group-teleportation is extremely abused in addition. Just walk there and actually RP. It's not that much of a hassle.

PS: I hate magic. Unnecessary crap. Use your legs. If your character isn't Harry Potter and actually respectfully uses magic as per their legitimate training allows and they don't abuse it every chance they get, sure, use magic. Teleport all you like. But I'm tired of seeing every character zip into existence like they have a hyperdrive in their pocket. Portals are fine as well, but lodestones should be restricted only to respected magicians within guilds. What's the point of a road if you can teleport? Charter ships must be going out of business, too. I guess they only transport cargo by that idea.

anarchism is a liberal idea? what

this is totally not off-topic but i thought anarchism was a more libertarian idea, which is super right wing

and i'm pretty sure liberal is left wing


this is totally on-topic guys and wont lead to any bad discussions or debates

pretty much in tl;dr he's saying he's so accepting of how people use magic that he has no rule sets to define its limitations, and in thus he's an anarchist in that nothing in his opinion constricts the user's abilities -- i don't think he's using those terms in a political sense

which his idea of ok magic is totally stupid and should be kept to private rp lol. there's no way in hell i'm going to be accepting of some vampire-werewolf-mahjarrat with the magical power compared to that of a neutron star. complete bs

Anarchism is extreme liberalism. Both fall under libertarianism. They are applicable to, or moreso work in conjunction with, both left and right wing economic ideology. The Authoritarianism-Libertarianism scale is a gauge of social ideology encompassing ideals from ethnic nationalism and totalitarianism to freedom of religion and tolerance to stateless natural order. The type of anarchism (right or left) is gauged by economic ideology and when paired with that it becomes an argument of the Individual vs the Collective. Extreme right is extreme Individualism. Extreme left is Collectivism/anarcho-communism. In and close to the centre (economically) you would have mutualists, libertarianians, left libertarians, social democrats, centrist liberals etc.

Sorry for the off topic post. Hope I cleared something up for you, Blox.
Allahu Akbar

Didn't you quit again
Why are you here

Also since I am being pew pew'd at straight outta nowhere I'ma clap back by explaining this boy's saltiness

I used earth runes
As a human
To move some rocks under his feet
He didn't like that
Called me a geomancing telekinetic mastermind
Then ragequit the roleplay

Proceeds to Skype PM me saying that magic cannot, in fact, manipulate the elemental environment, but can only generate the elements
Then got upset when I pointed out the hydromancy wizard Myrtle as an example of magic manipulating an element
And deleted me
I have screenies if anyone wants them

Now go sic a forum mod on me because you can't handle when someone claps back
I prefer twillow she's cool
