Re: [Poll] Plot Staff

What additional incentives can we give to storyteller players that would be meaningful? Plot staff or not, we definitely want to encourage player storytellers.

Re: Exile and its Implementation

So far the suggestions are: 1) only allow exile upon capture 2) leave them in play and just have them be exiled 3) as with #2, but also load mobs to attack the exiled person 4) pull them out of play, but let them back into play if they meet unspecified criteria I haven't really formulated an opinion...

Re: Exile and its Implementation

I'm not certain that I see the difference with regards to a capture-exile and an execution. Thematically, they're different things, and I don't think exile historically required a capture, just the statement by the Monarch that a person is unwelcome in their lands. In fact, most people who are exile...

[Poll] Plot Staff

Staff nebulously want to hire a plot staffer, but we're struggling on a few fronts. Plot staff haven't worked out on TI in the past for numerous reasons, but despite those, we feel that the benefits of having a plot staffer probably outweigh the history, making it worth trying again. In our view, th...

Re: Exile and its Implementation

That's a possible implementation, but it lacks several nebulous things that we are looking for with the implementation, amongst them reinforcing the thematic strength of an exile from the Queen and, peripherally, the Seneschal role.

Re: Exile and its Implementation

The Seneschal's personal power does not generally mean as much in Southside, particularly not day to day. However, their authority as Keeper of the Seal speaks on behalf of the Queen, and her power extends to pretty much any loyal Lithmorran. That said, I am certainly open to discussing changes to e...

The Noble Play Experience

Staff have recently put a lot of effort into improving the play experience for noble characters. This includes re-instating the Keeper of the Seal in the role of the Seneschal, giving them the ability and right to sit on the Council, the ability to preferentially impact city metrics, started a prest...

Re: Exile and its Implementation

For clarification, exile does not currently require people to be captured. It makes the assumption that the Seneschal is powerful enough to turn all vNPCs against the person to the extent that they are effectively 'captured off screen'. Please also note that it is costly to the Seneschal to invoke, ...

Re: Exile and its Implementation

I'm curious at different people's views of this. The exile code drops someone in an OOC room and places restrictions on them similar to excommunication, and posts a note on the IC_Event board announcing the change in the character's social status. We have not determined if an exiled character can re...
