Exactly. All the graphics (and sounds, and other copyrighted stuff) are a part of the Titanium client ... which (again) R&N won't touch with a ten foot pole.

Again, copyright on what? They didn't copy the server code: they wrote it 100% from scratch (and, again, it's impossible for anyone to copy that code, as it's been lost to time). You don't need to...

It sounds like this would be an ideal camp for a Bard who wants a less competed-for spot, and likes to "AFK play" (kill a bunch, go AFK for a bit, repeat). Is that a fair assessment ... or would...

Did you even read anything I wrote? Daybreak doesn't own the IP for the P99 server; Rogean and Nilbog do. Period. It is 100% unique software, written 100% independently, and in a legal sense it...

To be clear, Nilbog has given us 10+ years of incredible development; I am nothing but grateful for that.
