    BG Law My stay in Mordion Gaol

    Midday Monday I was finishing up some quest I went up the npc to turn in a quest went the screen went black and started loading, I found my self in a dungeon. At first I thought it was a solo instance, but quickly realized the sad truth I was selected to be one of the 1st characters to test out Mordion Gaol.

    Forgive me of not taking pics of the initial conversion, the ingame screen shot doesn't work in jail, but basically went my name went against policies he was gonna kick me and when I log back on I was gonna be greeted with a change name prompt. After which he kicked me off the game.

    I had to get some sleep for work, so I decided to wait till I got off the next morning to make a decision on a new name. The next morning I talked on BG chat and finally choose my new name "Last Order". After inputting my new name and logging on I found to my surprise I was still in jail.






    I stayed on from 8am to 1pm waiting for GM, a reply, or any kind of acknowledgement. Once 1pm came around I knew I had to get some sleep or work.
    Next day I got on my legacy toon sent in a ticket, then logged in on my imprisoned avatar. After 3 hours a GM finally showed up.

    Last Order is a good Roegadyn name. Good use for that Vial of Phantasia!

    I don't understand why you people pick the stupidest names. You obviously know you're going to have to change it.

    To be fair, he had the name since before 1.0 official service. That's a pretty long time to go unchecked.
    But more importantly I got screens of what jail looks like since I'll probably never get to visit it!

    At least you'll have a story to tell, I did a 3 day stretch in Mordion Goal.

    Really what did you do?

    I killed a man named Slapaho Pimpalot.

    This reminds me of the reddit post with the guy named "Ass cancer" who got jailed for a name change lol. Surprised they are going hard on names like this, though it's kind of nice too.

    Mordion Gaol is really just as restrictive as you can get, the only thing that works is jump. Even normal log off and exit game commands are blocked.

    That doesn't change the fact that you chose a dumb name.

    GMs didn't care about 1.0. They do now.

    Rampant cheating, botting and "offensive" names were about in 1.0. Not trying to justify anything, just saying,

    Oh come on we all know that no one really played 1.0, not you, not me, & not all these "Legacy" players.

    *Whistles nonchalantly while riding off on his Legacy Chocobo*

    Really though, it's pretty crazy how you got stuck there for hours.

    That was the insanity of isolation starting to set in.

    /logout
    /exit
    /getmeouttahere
    /anybody there?
    /HAAAAAALP!!!

    Reminds me of Mrgooddick. Had that char on XI for about 5 mins or less before I was put in jail. GM didn't say a word. Said I'm logging off and deleting it now. logged, deleted it, didn't hear back from the GM

    Oh I'm not saying having a ridiculous name is a good idea. However names are usually my first indicator of what a person is like. EX: Brofistswagyolo Swag, Digger Nick, Cloude Strife
    But there was no indicator on how they were going to handle inappropriate names or take action on anyone until service started. All we knew was during 1.0 there was a lack of interest in stopping people from doing things for obvious reasons.

    Anyways, glad you finally got out of jail.

    I guess you have a point, Mina. Although last night I inadvertently helped a guy named Tairy Hesticles from dying. I came out of a CS and saw a guy dying to a mob but his player name was obstructed (and honestly I wasn't even really paying attention). I help him kill the mob and as he ran off he said "Thanks!" and that's when I noticed his name...
