I think gang tolls while seeming necessary for these combat characters to have an income and be able to recoup from losses, are more harmful to the community than they are good. While we want the mix to feel like a hostile and dangerous place, being hounded by the same characters for a measly thousand chyen makes the mix feel small, and also feels like the NPC base isn't apart of the same struggles you are. Barely ever do I see a ganger PC tolling or even talk about tolling a known NPC. I mean why are you tolling the massive population of Red anyways? You'd think with how cramped mix streets are, gangs wouldn't be able to stop someone walking down the street so easily. Why not flip gang tolls towards a bigger target? Extort business for protection money, instead of the small fish. It's also frustrating for newer players, especially those who aren't donating for a pad, for otherwise lack disposable chyen like that to be conveniently farmed for 1 kay every week, or face even rougher punishment including multiple beatings, and deaths for not paying out. I myself have been a part of continuing this RP and I don't like what I believe it's done to the game.
What if instead we presented some ideas to help change gang and criminal RP for the better. Nothing to specific, but what's a scenario you think someone could work toward that would satisfy both a need for criminal RP, but also truly show how big of a place Sindome really is.
