Re: Combat Guide

If anyone wants to work on it with me, let me know and I can create the google file to work on it collaboratively. I'm also considering writing some IC books, if there are certain topics players would like covered in combat primers IC that are not covered in Jinosa's let me know.

Re: Turf Wars Spec - 1st Draft

I'd challenge that Racism isn't a big part of game mechanics - it certainly is for Charali and Hillmen. They are unable to take part in prestige, contribute to projects (via game mechanics, they can certainly be shook down for donations that nobles add themselves), etc. The only real way to get IP i...

Re: Combat Guide

It's pretty long. Could we throw it into a google doc or something for a few combat folks to edit and then submit to staff?

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 ...

Re: Large Scene Management

I'm wondering if join spots could just be visible on 'look around', which looks at the objects or aspects of a room, in addition to furniture. Or being able to 'look pc', 'look npc' and 'look places'. Having furniture set up in public RP spots already would be great. I rarely do large scenes or use ...

Re: [Poll] Trial Removal of OOC Channels - One Week Countdown

I think for this poll to be useful, you really need to separate the tells from guild channels. I'm voting a net negative. I don't enjoy the loss of the social aspect on tells, but with tells and guild channels gone, it makes it incredibly difficult to help guild folk with guild commands. Pboards are...

Re: Influence Level Names

I think there's two different realms of using influence in the game. I agree with Geras that for characters on the very lower end, we need some 1-5 modifiers rather than modest for 1-10. Sometimes folks are just asking their guildleaders for something in the 1-5 range to help support a city metric, ...

Re: Teaching Tomes and Rosetta Stones

Unless languages have changed, having even a minor amount of a language makes you almost fluent so very quickly for most RP that I'm really not into it for book learning this way, because it'd translate to way more experience in a language than you'd realistically be able to get working out of a boo...

Re: Trial removal of some OOC Channels - Update Feedback

I think it's best if we don't assume someone was blurring IC/OOC lines because they liked guild channels. Sometimes a sense of community and knowing you aren't the only one out there is motivating - their IC character doesn't need that motivation (or may not be able to get it if play times are sever...

Re: Guild Discords

I'd rather guild channels come back in game than move to discord.
