I worked in retail for 25 years. I've always said that Quake was the only thing that kept me off of the water tower... ;)
Even more so on the team pvp servers... killing enemy players guaranteed you would always be KOS to their cities' factions. When Kunark released I spent ridiculous amounts of time trying to build my shaman's faction with the Iksar, but ran into a hard limit on the faction my Zek worshipping Ogre could gain with the Thule worshipping Greenmist Knights.
But that was okay... it made sense with the lore, and meant I would always be a barely tolerated outsider in the Iksar city.
It made for some real 'white-knuckle' merchant runs. I don't remember whether I was ever able to get close enough to use the bank...
The Frost Giants of Velious on the other hand... were my homeys.
