Re: Plot Fatigue Poll

My two cents: If we feel the need to institute a policy that requires a TL;DR line at the end of IC Event notes because of how much stuff is happening off-screen and/or needs to be reiterated to the pbase, then there's probably too much stuff happening off-screen and/or out of sight of most of the p...

Re: Quit Quotes

"Oh dear, too well, mm? Well, I can't take it back now. Come home, and I'll fix that for you. Sorry, love." A mage to her lover after an image sent to him telepathically caused him to crash face-first into a tree. This made me chuckle. Less the text and more the whole creating a brand new login jus...

Updated to reflect some of the more recent-ish changes to the system, especially around deadlines. See any errors? Give me a nudge!

Re: Influence Level Names

An easy fix to that problem with 500 adjectives is just editing: influence request <emote> To: influence request amount <emote> And have it just put right at the end how many IP you are asking for. Easy peasy. The big assumption here is that the request/exchange is happening during active RP. It's ...

Re: Influence Level Names

A group for 1-5 sounds reasonable, but I definitely wouldn't add individual adjectives for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I also don't think we need to complicate this with 14 different adjectives, either. 0 - Nonexistent 1-5 - Modest 6-10 - Moderate 11-20 - Respectable 21-30 - Significant 31-40 - Impressive 41+ - ...

Re: Influence Level Names

I think the names have to be different for each of the values from 0-5 since those are the relevant ones for gifting someone IP. 0 - Impotent / Unknown 1 - Minor 2 - Modest 3 - Middling 4 - Moderate 5 - Significant Or something like that? These aren't bad, but you're mistaken on sharing influence a...

Re: Influence Level Names

I didn't see this topic before I posted my own recently. Here's my two cents: Some years ago, when we changed the support/IP system from a rolling one to a 2-week cadence with no carryover, we never went back and updated the influence scales/adjectives to make it easier to talk about influence ICly....

Influence Scales and Adjectives

Some years ago, when we changed the support/IP system from a rolling one to a 2-week cadence with no carryover, we never went back and updated the influence scales/adjectives to make it easier to talk about influence ICly. This has been a chronic difficulty for me while playing a noble and especiall...

Mail recipient "does not exist."

Currently, when you try to send mail or packages to an invalid recipient, the game returns: So-and-so does not exist. The problem is that the inability to send mail to someone can have IC repercussions, such as when an intended recipient dies, silently liquidates, undergoes rebirth, etc. In those ca...
