I never said this before because i was making money out of it but i don’t really care anymore. You shouldn’t buy slaves or pay for ransoms unless the person runs the risk of being PK’ed. They can just be killed and shrug it off like any other day.
I mean, it might not be immersive to not PK or just shrug the RP off because you know it won’t end anywhere at the end of the day and be just yet another thing.
People buying slaves is the only reason that people are caught to be sold as slaves, or else people would never capture people to sell them as slaves or ask for ransom money. Like, I legit used to make so much money out of enslavery back in Anthos that I was surprised of how stupid people were.
Just my opinion tho, that even your best in game friend isn’t worth paying even 100 minas unless at the risk of PK, it'll be just a short experience of 1-2 hours and you can go back to RP after the enslavers eventually get bored and decide to kill you. If no one bought slaves, no one would be bothering getting slaves for selling and this would reduce banditry, think about it
