Origin of DKP

Dragon Kill Points or DKP is used to keep track of participation and contribution in raids and is used to distribute loot “fairly”. I always knew it came from Everquest, but Rob Pardo told me that it was originally created by, Thott, the GM of Afterlife. In case you were wondering…

    LOL no. DKP (or something very similiar but with a different name) has been around since the time of muds, literally decades ago.

    Wha is correct. Afterlife (one of the bigger EQ guilds) took Diku’s point system and made it DKP.

    O. It is correct that it wasn’t called DKP until Afterlife then right?
