Rogue Prison GM

Title:Rogue Prison GM

Summary:Put a GM in place as a "Judge" of Rogue Prison

Details:Currently, rogue prison is a nearly complete time-out from the game. You can read your message feed, or pay the ransom. If you are an infil or hero, you have a button to escape. Adding a 'GM' to rogue prison would give the player some interaction while they are stuck there. A few messages a day could really help with the gameplay.

Benefits:This would add interaction for the people stuck in rogue prison for days on end, so they at least have something to do rather then sit out for a week.

Possible Downsides/Exploits: GMs are human, so people could convince them to let them go early I suppose?

I am not sure if you should see the rogues as a single faction, but rather as various groups of bandits, monsters and undead.
Off course a GM could perhaps play as if he represents all those different kind of groups, but i don't know if that is feasible.
Its hard to be consistent for the GM's rp especially if he doesnt know where you got caught and how.
I wonder if rogues can read or write in the first place, since bandits are peasants and the monsters and undead are, well, monsters and undead...

They do offer you the ransom to pay if iam not mistaken which is questionable already, must be quite the intelligent monsters/undead to figure out what numbers are and what number a prisoner is worth.

If you could imagine all those problems away i still see a problem of people complaining about the GM, freeing certain characters while letting others rot.
Unless the exhange of letters is just flavour or rp.

Who is even going to volunteer to spend their days interacting with people getting imprisoned in the rogue prison?

Even people rarely interact with their prisoners. I don't really see the point of this.

Sounds like an opportunity for Vita to go full Chuunibyou. I support this outcome.

It's a prison. 
If you don't like staring at the walls, stop getting caught???

"I'm sorry you are not enjoying your stay in our prison, Is there something that I could do to make your stay more memorable???"

You find yourself practically drawn and quartered.  You loose 3/4 of each of your trained skills and should recover from your physical damage in a few weeks.  But on the bright side, the hospital food (that you are fed through a straw for the next couple of weeks) is MUCH better than that stuff back in the cells.
