I was thinking about this again recently and thought I would share my thoughts here. I don't think that you should need permission to cause damage (repairable) to a business. So far, Every time I have wanted to do anything to a business I have been told no and given reasons ranging from I've done that before so it doesn't interest me to My business was recently damaged and I just ICly fixed it. While I understand that if you are running a business in RL it would really suck having these things happen all the time, that is the environment we have in DE. Could you tell a bugler in RL that they don't have permission to rob you because someone else robbed you last week? Really, in DE, what do you actually lose from something like this?
It only furthers someone's story, and to a lesser extent, your own by allowing it. When I ran Pizza Slut, I never denied someone doing something to us. It gave my staff more to RP than standing around saying would you like a drink with that. It cost me nothing. I only asked that they honor facts like NPC employees, cameras, etc; and send me a notecard of what happened, which then got the police and the paper involved...again, more RP.
The - I've done that kind of RP before - reason especially feels selfish to me. So because you have had that experience, you want to deny it to me and to others who work in your business? Again...what's it cost you? A couple minutes making an IC call to fix your window, counter or door? Why not delegate it to a staff member who may be ready to quit for lack of RP, then you don't even have to deal with it.
Anys...I'm kind of rambling now. I really feel that businesses should go with the flow more, rather than refusing someone the chance to further a storyline.
