Plaguelands..: "[World of Warcraft]...The amazing thing is SOME PLAYERS have brought this disease (and it is a disease) back to the towns, outside of the instance. It starts spreading amongst the general population including npcs, who can out generate the damage. Some servers have gotten so bad that you can't go into the major cities without getting the plague (and anyone less than like level 50 nearly immediately die). GM's even tried quarantining players in certain areas, but the players kept escaping the quarantine and infecting other players."

I just think this is the coolest thing. The guys who coded this are my heroes. The fact that the game can handle things that were not origionally part of the design at all. Things like disease. Really cool. ...though it would be even cooler if the some players had a natural immunity - it would make the whole thing look more intentional. Did I just prove the existance of god? Makes me want to play video games...must...resist.
