I love a bunch of the D&D commentary on this fic. Just saying. 🙂
And yes, the players are exploiting loopholes wherever they can possibly find them. Players tend to do that. To a certain extent, Beniryuu set it up so they would do exactly that – because remember, adventurers are relatively few and far between in Eberron. Right now he has several thousand highly motivated people trying to break the system any way they can get away with, and you can bet one interested red dragon is taking notes.
But even a red dragon with INT 24 can’t watch everything at once. Which is the only reason our players stand any chance whatsoever.
I have to admit, one of the reasons this fic stalled for a while was that I was having trouble figuring out how our players would manage to use that slim chance. I had part of the solution, but not how to get it implemented in Aincrad-reality.
I think I finally have an answer to that, and Yui is the key.
That, and… well, Beniryuu is a bit too focused on what he’s making people to remember what they were before he ever started.
Currently the Kabaneri fluff is still going, and if I turn loose of that it might stall. So… I’m going to take notes for this idea in MCO. So I have them later. 🙂
