Re: Log of OOC Meeting 2018-06-23

In Staff eyes, raising liquidation as an outcome if certain plot results are not obtained reads like a strong arm tactic. In my view, I told Farra this directly and privately, trying to be as polite about it as possible. As I understand it, my raising the point for discussion was in itself viewed as...

Re: Great Grand Inquisitor? What made them Great?

Just to show off my age... Santei. Terrifying, known for being capacious, he was the GI when I started playing, and he set the tone for my early TI experience. At the time, he was the living embodiment of paranoia-generation because he could and did kill people at whim. Ultimately, he pkilled my one...

Re: Seneschal Directly Ousting GLs — Why This Can Be Good

My thoughts are that it's appropriate and thematic for the Seneschal to have this proposed authority with the changes we have in mind. It's appropriate for players to be genuinely fearful of angering the Seneschal, and the propsed checks and balances basically come down to diluting this themely inte...

Re: Finding RP Helpfile

Sharing rumors is not intended to be restricted to Troubs as it's a social activity; we could have just code locked it to Troubs if that was the desired limitation. Troubs have other advantages in that space.

Re: Seneschal Directly Ousting GLs — Why This Can Be Good

I think the entrenched level is a fair level to hold a Guild Leader as safe at — it's really not that hard to get someone wavering off of that, though if it proves to be too difficult I think it could be removed. Along the same lines, I don't recall seeing an answer to this question, though it's po...

Re: Replacing Aides with Volunteers?

The reason it's not there yet is that with the low volume of cyans comparatively, it feels a bit like just telling the pbase where to find a specific player. I'm not sure how troubling that is or isn't when it comes to cyans, however.

Re: Replacing Aides with Volunteers?

In my mind, the best and most powerful use for volunteers is helping new players integrate into the game, primarily an RP perspective (see a cyan looking lonely on whereRP? Go RP with them!). This is the absolutely most important key to new player retention and we frequently fail at it. The other th...

Re: Seneschal Directly Ousting GLs — Why This Can Be Good

Hmm. I certainly agree with that in a practical sense - it is an IC action done by a specific IC person for IC reasons... I'm just not sure if the fact that it happens that way ICly means that it cannot be ICly represented some other way as an intentional IC obfuscation, and whether declaring that i...

Re: Replacing Aides with Volunteers?

I like replacing the name 'Aide' with 'Volunteer', albeit we need a shorter synonym that will fit on the who list (no more than 8 characters). I don't like volunteers turning their flags off; we had that for Aides and it *seemed* to contribute to their doing nothing but having an Aide flag for prest...
