you brought it up and I'm sick of it, you and murphy keep talkin like there is too much crime....TERRA takes care of red....so why would you care if crime ran rampant down there?
Don't put words in my mouth, or I'll start being very rude.
I am never talking as if there is too much crime, I'm talking as if most of you would-be criminals don't know what you're doing and are too lazy to think.
A few days before I became a Judge, I brokered a deal for someone and made about 20k out of it in the space of a day. A few days earlier, I'd commited a crime that COULD have netted me somewhere between 20-25k, but it was found out because of some mistakes I made, so I turned it to my advantage another way. That would have been about 40k, 2 months of Judge salary, in the space of a couple weeks. And I didn't even do anything -serious-.
Furthermore, I can think of a couple of player character criminals with very large bank accounts from their illegal activites. If they can do it, so can you.
Finally, did you even READ Alla's post? She very much said that we SHOULD NOT get metal-detecting goggles. She was arguing in the favor of YOUR cause. NOT against. So quit whining.
Edit: No wait, I'm not done. What's all this shit about Judges not dying from their jobs? The ONLY reason I've died is because of my job. You might say, 'Well, youve only died once!' and yes, I've only died once, because my character doesn't want to die.
Alla has a deathwish or something, though. She dies like once or twice a week.
