You know...

Recently it has come to my attention, more so than before, that there have been COUNTLESS times when I think I could have added to my post, or someone could have added to theirs, in using each others creatures respectively.

I'm not talking about doing an entire fightscene, or a full conversation, or whatever, but simply things, like, say, a blocker creature blocking a blow for a support creature, well, I want to see it done.

Just as an example, in Northland, Ithique is stationed behind Admortis. In Ithique's post, Ithique has firebolts directed at him, and they need to go past Admortis to do this.
I'd much prefer it be marginally more realistic, and the balls are either blocked or 'absorbed (even taking a bit of damage, perhaps) by Admortis than a support character having to deal with that. Support characters should be drilling the other creatures in the damned face.
Another thing... I'd like to have included 'Ithique fired cautionary bolts' at the warlock, to supress him or whatevs, but obviously I couldn't...

So, essentially, I'll propose this.

If you feel the same, put your name down below as someone who is willing to have their creatures do SIMPLE things for the sake of other peoples posts.

P.S. If permission is granted, any and all mishaps (e.g., not so minor things happening) will be your responsiblity to roll with or work out with the other person that used it. Get them to edit their post, or fit it into yours, is what I'ma saying.
Under no circumstances should Duke have to deal with anybody elses mess as a result. Like, seriously, let me stress that. But yeah.

I hereby sign the permissions board.

So what you are saying is, essentially, minor control of others creatures in battle to try and make battles fit together better as a whole and make them more of a group affair with creatures all effecting and aiding each other? That is the gist i got.

I shall probably sign, but that isn't final. The way battles go is sometimes boring with all the creatures in the dungeon trying to dance around without stepping on each others toes is kinda annoying. I tend to do this between my creatures in realms where I double and am only posting for one. It works, but then, that is just me so...

Tis the gist of it, yes, and you phrased it rather well - trying not to step on each other's toes. How about, instead of stepping on them, you're doing the waltz.

Was this ever implemented in any way?

If I recall correctly, I did use someone else's character in a slightly more involved way than I would have without their permission here. Otherwise, not really.

Well if we ever get into another combat rut, we should remember this one.
