Just drop a volcano on it and be done with it.

*waves a tiny "either bring back or take over Tuluk but please quit letting it languish in limbo" flag*

We cannot have Tuluk back in the way it used to be, the city is now outdated compared to many other places. There is no comparing tuluk to allanak after years of upgrades, with rinth, redstorm and rooftop just to name a couple things which are accessible by choosing allanak. Not to mention all the problems Tuluk had within the city, with some of its themes and templars.

We certainly need the culture, the plots and the threat that came from Tuluki PCs. I would love to be a shadow artist working in allanak, reporting to the nobility in luirs. But an entire city, who's shops and goods have already been integrated into other locations, and that duplicating jobs found in other location to make it function. No.

Again as someone who loved Tuluk, who only played there until about the very end, it was a wonderful place for its time. Unfortunately if you opened the city back up, it would feel completed lackluster compared to any other location.

Like some have said.  I would be fine with just destroying Tuluk.  It's the limbo that annoys me.  Give us ruins, or just a strange empty city filled with deadly critters.  Even some strange magick that harms anybody who enters.   Give us a mystery to unravel, a foe to hate, or even a giant hole in the ground that will never be understood.   Fill the void with anything.

I would vote for magick crater of doom with bonus if it spews out spooky NPC's and stuff from time to time, and maybe even throw some cool forage in there, or like.. you know whacky gicker shit. Something bad happens and some of us get horribly abominated by magickal-nuclear fallout when Tuluk explodes into hate filled shards of ethereal glass or something. Lets do it. I'm down.

Crater of magick doom and or spillage of nasties that are problematic...something. I'm a fan of this general direction.

Staff regulate the amount of players for most clans already, just allow some for a 'Tuluki' clan to do one thing or another.
The city doesn't have to be fully reopened for that.

I think we would have more luck suggesting things that do not involve having staff assigned to oversee anything called "north" or "Tuluk".

You know, assuming staff is pretty set in their plan to not bring back Tuluk, it's a perfect place to create a "dungeon", D&D style. Tuluk finally dies IG, and in the ruins are untold treasure, and untold horror. Don't bother making it "beatable", make it explorable with a high risk of death, and make it profitable. Make it tell a story in room descriptions, old writing, old treasure. Create new NPCs that are incredibly unlikely to be beaten, that are cleverly scripted, and tell their own story. Give it a staff-played "boss" that keeps it from being over-run, like some of the bosses we saw during the Echri storyline.

Zalanthas doesn't have a dungeon. Why not allow Tuluk to do one last, great thing, and give Zalanthas its dungeon?

Y'know... This'd actually be super fucking neat.

Addendum: The BBEG dungeon boss is just Muk Utep, also good fucking luck killing him with anyone except like, 40 kitted out PCs all logged in at once doing their best.

To make up for the lack of Tuluk coming back in full, we should expand Luir's a shit ton, make it less of an outpost and more of a town. Not Allanak levels (city), but definitely with its own culture, music, regular pitfights, etc etc etc.
