Noice.  I've been wanting that "fuck the leader" follow code for a while now.
Paint on a mustache and be a dude for a day. Stuff some melons down my shirt, cinch up a corset and pass as a girl.

With appropriate roleplay of course.

Finally.
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

Yes. This is exactly what I was thinking about when it came to climb. Amazing job, thank you.

Next time I have a bynner I'm gonna follow Sarge off the shield wall anyway.  Just for old time's sake.

Now I'm less likely to die due to others' keystroke mishaps!

Good change.

suggestion:  add "no-save climbfollow" for those who -want- to automatically follow their leader in (like if you're a desert elf with max-climb, es/eping climbing tools, wearing climbing boots, climbing gloves, climbing spikes, and a harness, and want to take a chance).

Also, does this only apply to auto-fall rooms, or any rooms with a climbable drop (no matter how difficult the climb)?

-Message sent when climbing with both hands full (and neither hand is holding a climb tool).
"Struggling with a jeweled iron dagger and a hooded lantern in your hands, you carefully climb west."

Don't you mean - "Scrambling like a beast with frozen whisky hammers for testicles you climb west while holding a real frozen whisky hammer and a limited edition 1986 Playboy."

We may actually get Nessalin over 100 posts with all this stuff.  This one has been rather nice to see come in.  So happy!

Oh then we definitely need a "nosave climbfollow" option. I imagine there are actually times when you know you're heading for a climb, and everyone in your group has proven capable, and the inconvenience of not following, and going in one at a time, would be more time consuming than taking everyone in one fell swoop. Not to mention those times when you have one person in the group who had to go AFK for a couple of minutes and is fully capable of making the climb (that happens pretty often in my experience).

This here is a good idea. It's not often you have a hardcore crew who can climb in groups...but I've had a couple and yes this would have come up.

Eh it makes sense enough to go up/down a fall room one at a time. There's usually a limited number of routes up/down any given rock face.

Let's not even get started on climbing down a well.

Anything that slows a group down while travelling and makes them consider the environment they're in is a-ok in my book.

You mean I can hide near a cliff face and pick off runner fuckface and friends since they're the last to go into the perilous hole?

And use climb rooms to break a stern chase without cheesing 'unhitch'?

And these would be circumstances of abuse of code.  I would "hope" that our players wouldn't do something like that.

I dunno, I think literally jumping off a cliff to get away from pursuit seems pretty realistic to me.

That's a good point, I could see that.  Once again, with a lot of those cases, it is going to be a case by case basis.
