Re: Messengers should codedly whisper messages

I use the 'room' portion of messengers to display things to people in the room even if it isn't reporting the entire message. Further, distance as a factor only works if people actually begin to use room spacing, 95% of the time people don't move from the doorway. So that seems once again like a rea...

Re: Messenger quick whisper <message>

I think if people wish their messages to be entirely secure, they should step out of a scene to hear them. The purpose here is encouraging RP. If I have to leave a scene each time I get a messenger the likelihood is I simply won't take messengers when already occupied, potentially cutting a lot of ...

Re: Messenger quick whisper <message>

Messengers are a vehicle by which people are able to set up RP. IMHO the presence of messengers is one of TI's big strengths for the setting compared to a lot of RPIs. I'd be honestly concerned that if messengers were suddenly less "secure" because people were overhearing them it would inspire peopl...

Farin on Vavardi: "Vanity and arrogance are not virtues in the eyes of the Lord." Farin on Vandagans: "Honor is upholding virtues and vows in actions not just practiced words." Farin on Tubori: "Their dedication to kith and kin is commendable, their definition of marriage needs work." Farin on Lithm...

Temi questions, "So, our agenda for today: 1) Staff Updates, 2) Player Heartbeat, 3) Player Topics. Does anyone have any topics to get on the list already?" Temi says, "I did get one anonymous topic already." ToffeeApples says, "I have one" Temi nods at ToffeeApples. Sparkles claims, "I have a topic...

Re: INDECENT!

This feels like making a mountain out of a molehill and I'm not certain why after so long this is such a dire thing. Trying to code all of the various levels of what different cultures and individual PCs do or do not feel about different levels of dress is overkill. People may or may not agree with ...

Re: INDECENT!

It already leads to confusion. I hear "Why am I indecent???" on visnet all the time. Beyond that, it discourages such kind of conflict because you can't turn the darn thing off on your prompt without disabling other useful information. People tend to put something on the wear slot just to shut it u...

Re: [Poll] Local or inter-ducal RP focus?

In short, having a PC Duchess of Vavard who is a PC deciding how to interact with the Seneschal and RPing her part seems to me to be 1000 fold more interesting than RP Staff answering mails, generally trying to supress top-level RP and redirect it back downwards into the pbase. One difficulty is th...

Re: [Poll] Local or inter-ducal RP focus?

Also, I think the poll is asking something different than the question in the OP at the beginning of the thread. I think there are plenty of people (particularly the GLs) who enjoy or -want- involvement in wider politics at a kingdom level given there are kingdom wide plots. However that does not di...
