I know this will be a very controversial issue …
What do you think of the possibility of burglary and pickpocketing. If you ever player “The Elder Scrolls” (especially Morrowind) then you know the “Thieves Guild” for sure. In the missions of the Thieves Guild, you had to steal items (eg. from the Mages Guild), “visit” one or the other defaulting clients and you had to sneak into buldings and observate.
Although I am against theft among players i realy liked the Quests and challenges from the Thieves Guild’s Missions in the TES and i would love to see this in Boundless.
If there was the possibility for burglary amoung players, Locks, Chests and Safes would become an interesting Gameplay-Mechanism… Don’t let your house for too long unvisited or hide your stuff at a realy secure space (Vaults)
That said, there should be the possiblity to keep things absolutely secure (like in the inventory or “special”[expensive, small] chests).
This would also require a legal system (Link) or the possibility of PvP (You may like to protect yourself and your stuff) …
