    Is town killing NPCs "broken" here? I used to do it on live servers all the time with screening them to avoid the guard call.
    Theyd path to me and easy kill. Here they dont path, just stand in place. And if you run in after the initial guard call they still call guards as soon as you swing.

    The NPCs here call guards more aggressively these days...

    The owner was upset that AFK players were getting killed in town so he made NPCs more proactive "witnesses".

    I think poison fields do the trick. But I am not experienced with it

    Yeah found those and 100% agree with the changes put in place. Just wish it affected actions vs players and not so much NPCs.

    Judging from past comments by Chris, there is a chance that in the future this will be re-evaluated. The change was a quick fix to some nutjob that seemed to be on a rampage, killing as many newbies and bank-sitters as possible. Rumor is the guy was trying to prove some sort of point about...something.

    There was a hilarious work of art in one of the UOR artwork contests or something, regarding the culprit and his "henchmen" :D

    Haaa! That brings back memories of farming odd colored sandals off shopkeepers. I used to run deep in the sandal black market...
