Hall of Nightmares
The massive stone barracks is lined with large wooden cots and mats, and
before each of these sits a large footlocker for stashing personal items.
Many of the cots are filled with sleeping Trollocs, whom toss and turn as
they dream twisted nightmares of a world where they must love thy neighbor

Honestly would have been more fun to have watched the thread had you taken about 20 of them out for PK. I sure the imms would have understood that you were just "testing" and not exploiting a bug :p

Yes, you can issue more than one. No, there's no way around it excepting coding. That is why upon release, we posted the above. It's the same as with pets, you can buy a ton and order them to assist you, hence why a rule was made about that.

Ely, is it okay to issue a mob when the first one dies? It seems like that might be a loophole abuse as it is unlimited. For instance, if I want to kill FD smob, and I issue a mob in FD and then make it buff the smob. Then it dies, and I repeat with as many mobs as it takes for the smob to die. That way I could solo lots of things especially near a city. I feel like that may not be the intention of the master mob. Maybe you guys should make a rule about that? Like no more than 3 mobs per IRL day?

That scenario would be covered by the loophole rule:
2) Loopholes.
It is illegal to abuse/exploit loopholes in the game or code, and
you are encouraged to report these loopholes. Loopholes are anything
that doesn't work as advertised or lets you do things which you
normally couldn't do, or makes an activity easier than it otherwise
would be.


Any rewards earned from exploiting loopholes (equipment, points, or
otherwise) will be revoked, and demotions up to a full zap are likely.


We are not going to set a hard and fast rule about issuing an amount, as that would affect people who binge one day a week more than people who play half an hour here and there. It's as simple as using your best judgement and erring on the side of caution. People seem to have a pretty good sense of what constitutes abuse, it's just that some will elect to ignore the voice of common sense.
