So here we go.
1. Include a mage application system while you create an account, a "mage" char is only different from the normal char in terms of having an ancient book, the ancient book gives away the language skill and is useless afterwards, the mage application can be done by an gm, thus we don't have biased people, atleast not as biased as chars ig.
2.Give every char the chance to get a runebook, runebooks are made up from several runepages.
3.Runepages themself are found about everywhere libarys/monsterdrops/randomly while crafting/ one random page spawn on one random spot on the whole island every rotcycle and so on
4.As soon as you read a runebook it gets useless forever or even gets deleted.
5.Runebooks give every "basic" rune aswell as some "advance" runes, the skill in ancient decides aswell how good your spells are, you can aquire a ancient book, that can be reused, via gm quests or just spread them among every teacher and every full fledged mage that is currently played ig.
Because such a system, of course, needs time to be programmed I offer a "dirty" fix for all those who want a "natural" or "free" rune room, there will be a second entrance for the academy rune room, either complettly free or it takes maybe a few coins to enter, however it is done you can teach your runes down there, without joining the academy as such, clear enough?
If you really care about the 3 students I told you before you are free to send me a pm, but as you obviously have no interrest in this anyway, you can spare our time.
*applauds* good good boy, You managed to make a post that didn't take up a page, and you didn't quote a single person. Congratulations, you've become a man (i'll take the warning but someone needs to smack your ego down and I'm gonna do it every time I guarantee you)
Those really don't sound much like your idea's. More of a combination of things Cromwell and Kaila and a few others have said. Put together it seems plausible, but it also seems rediculously complex.
Firstly we need bunches of new items, even if it were only 4-5 parts per rune book if this qualifies 10 runes that's 40-50 new items. I don't see what makes this superior to using NPC's with quests, that can involve anything including library study, monster killing, gathering and riddles or all of the above.
We also discussed before that monster drops will be the wrong way to go with runebook parts. They stand the risk of being collected by warriors and sold off like expensive dishware. Secondly it provides a difficulty for mages whom will have trouble defeating said monsters and have to rely on warriors, and potentially the minority of very powerful ones at that, we want to at least in part remove some of that dependancy, not simply redirect it.
Sitting in the library to collect rune parts is fine, but then why ever go out into the field at all? Just sit around and do nothing. As i stated before this could lead to long bouts of Shift/click->click->cap->log and repeat. Giving the direct reward for simply reading a book doesn't strike me as any good.
Also why increase the GM workload when NPC's in part would reduce this phantom workload of constant request checking? by providing rudimentary magic for some newbies we can appease there desire to use active parts of the system while at the same time still have some use as teachers by teaching more advanced magic.
And finally, You speak of insults but whenever you get heated up all you do is start attacking people. You can say I've attacked you but I believe several people would easily agree that your own words and actions resulted in the response I gave. The fact is you are attacking people then crying wolf. Maybe you deserve the warning as well. Learn to accept that not everyone wants what you want, no matter how rational or well thought out it is, yelling at them isn't going to help your situation or change their minds. Majority will win of minority in the end
Thank you and have a pleasant tomorrow
