Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

Generally speaking, when the Cardinal is contacted, the Cardinal stands with a Grand Inquisitor with a high support barometer and frequently with a low barometer as well. When the Cardinal is contacted, he generally acts as a theme enforcer/reminder. GIs don't generally get issues with the Cardinal ...

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

Personal opinion: I do not understand where the question "is the order oppressive enough" comes from. Imho, it's not the correct way to wonder about the order's situation. I admit, I wrote this post after speaking to only two players, and found an interesting commonality in their thoughts. What do ...

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

Well, the issue posited was that the Order doesn't feel dangerous and powerful. I don't see how the Cardinal has anything to do with that; they're pretty much an entirely off grid figure. There's no physical way that the three times in the last twelve+ months that the Cardinal was contacted (none of...

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

In the vein of having a mature, participatory conversation, let's please refrain from raising (particularly recent) IC situations, especially if the parties in question are emotionally invested in whatever happened. Instead, as requested at the outset, please focus on high level discussion.That is w...

Re: The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

Farra was an excellent Orderite who empowered the Holy Order and made it feel like an organisation to be feared. I was sad to see her go. While I understand that there were personal conflicts that made it difficult to collaborate, it's worth examining why this happens and how to prevent relations f...

The Stranglehold of the Holy Order

Greetings, Thematically, the Holy Order is supposed to be a powerful, broadly oppressive regime. It's been raised to me by members both inside and outside of the Holy Order that this sense is missing ICly. Is this true? Why is this the case? Is there more that we can/should do to fix this up? WARNIN...

[Poll] Guild bank accounts

As per today's OOC Chat - a player raised that they thought it was weird that the everyday guild member can see their guild account balances. NOTE: everyday guild members cannot see the guild payments (ie, cash flow). Some players felt this was good for accountability, the prevention of embezzlement...

Re: Discord/Tell/OOC Comms Removal Discussion

That's theoretically a downside, yes, but my personal experience with that was that I didn't need AIM, and instead of being expected to OOCly engage with every person I RPed with, I only really kept in touch with one or two friends. I personally didn't miss it. I imagine there are many people who wo...

Re: Blackballing

Well, without examples, I think it's currently too wide for scope. I think it could use some examples, like: Example: - Person A does something Icly to negatively impact person B icly - Person B takes this action personally and conspires with others oocly to make Person A's time icly more difficult....
