So I read a couple articles on here where people would like to be saving people from wolves and such compared to squirrels and ladybugs. Also, since it's hard to identify unoccupied players, i thought it would be funny if the server operators could create "Instances" that appear in cities and various places. These instances could be where "Wolves have broken through the gates" the big yellow circle goes up, you get a time limit to A: Call for help (there's always people hanginig around anyways) B: Be fast enough to leave the instance (which would be easy if you are occupying your Avatar)
If the operators suspect something strange they could send down an instance to investigate. Or it'd be funny if a bunch of Crafters gathered in an area, and a big rogue elephant broke in. Also another good reason to have those handy Gear Swap Macros set.
