Free For All

FFA or Free For All is an option in MUDs or MMO gameworlds whereby any member of an adventuring party can loot the fallen bodies after a group combat. To lessen griefing and loot whoring, a majority of such worlds insist the group turns on this option. Otherwise, only the person who killed a creature can loot the fallen corpse.
