Ghed says, "Alright, I think we can begin"
Ghed queries, "Before we begin, folks, here's a reminder of the OOC Chat Pact: Everyone on TI does
the best they can, given what they know at the time, their skills and abilities, the resources
available, and the situation at hand. We will be respectful of this and each other at all times."
Today's Agenda is:
- Staff Updates
- Player Heartbeat
- Player Topics
Is there anything anyone would like to add to the agenda to make certain we discuss it today? If you
register a topic, please pre-write it so you're ready to present it when called upon.
Finally, who wants to scribe for today?"
Ghed peers left and right.
Laniya eats a hand-shaped cookie, dipped in a coating of dark chocolate.
say Well if no one else will...
Rambling trails off, "Well if no one else will..."
Ghed exclaims to Rambling, "Thank you!"
Ghed has awarded you 2 QPs: scribe
Ghed states, "Okay, time to start this week's Staff Update."
Ghed claims, "I deployed the Brotherhood minigame this week, hence the hand-shaped OOC chat gifties"
Temi nods in agreement.
Ghed states, "Well, I deployed it last week, but it became more functional (and used) this week"
Ghed says, "I hear there's already been a few cases of stuff going on already"
Konaa claims, "Shakes my fist"
Temi claims, "If you want to know more, you'll need to join the Brotherhood, perhaps."
say I'm sure members of the Brotherhood are thankful for that.
Rambling states, "I'm sure members of the Brotherhood are thankful for that."
Ghed states, "They seem to like it"
Ghed has transferred Edison. [OOC]
Edison states, "Oh that's the hierophant"
Temi gives a hand-shaped cookie, dipped in a coating of dark chocolate to Edison.
HIEROPHANT claims, "Hi"
Konaa claims, "He does birthday parties"
HIEROPHANT states, "I do birthday parties"
say And funerals.
Rambling states, "And funerals."
HIEROPHANT states, "And funerals."
Ghed claims, "I'm going to move on with the new staff plot, which should be lighter and less
dramatic than The Wasting was"
say No emotional damage?
Rambling muses, "No emotional damage?"
Temi claims, "Less emotional damage."
Ghed claims, "Should be something everyone can participate in, and that would create lots of RP"
Temi nods in agreement.
Temi says, "I think you guys will like it."
Konaa says, "Nice, nice"
Laniya states, "I look forward to it, mostly been busy but popping in"
Edison says, "New plot: The flood again, but this time it's mayonnaise"
Ghed states, "Other than that I did a few little fixes here and there, added new ambiance echoes to
the Common Cells and the Southside Taverns, recommends, and some phome stuff"
Ghed declaims, "Also, no policy this week!"
Temi exclaims, "Yay!"
say It's over...
Rambling trails off, "It's over..."
Ghed declaims, "For now! =)"
Konaa claims, "One day I will play a character who can actually see the Southside changes"
Ghed wonders to Temi, "And what about you?"
Temi states, "Not too much on my side, some requests and typos and things like that."
Temi states, "But no current big projects."
Temi nods at Ghed.
Ghed states, "Excellent, thanks"
Ghed says, "I know Eurus has been busy and Leta has been working on typoes a bit more, so that's
Ghed asks, "Alright people, let's move on to Player Heartbeat: how has the week been for y'all?"
HIEROPHANT claims, "I wrote another book."
Kalana claims, "Been well, though nothing too exciting"
say Chilling out, deciding which Disco Elysium song to pick for the next who title...
Rambling trails off, "Chilling out, deciding which Disco Elysium song to pick for the next who
Iaka declaims, "I am meeting lots of new people!"
Ghed states, "I think lots of people have been slaving away at Baldur's Gate 3"
Konaa states, "Mix of getting way busier and also feeling under the weather has made me doing a lot
less stuff and scening for shorter, and I'm sure I've come off kind of loopy and abrupt IN scene, so
sorry about that, lmao. I will be spotty for a hot minute"
Konaa claims, "I WISH I were slaving away at BG3. My computer can't run it"
Laniya states, "Mainly be peddling around, been hoping to find a preist or something with the order
for some confession rp"
say I may not be coming or at least being active during some of these OOC meetings from here on as
my tabletop day got shifted to Saturdays.
Rambling claims, "I may not be coming or at least being active during some of these OOC meetings
from here on as my tabletop day got shifted to Saturdays."
Temi declaims to Rambling, "At least it's for a good cause!"
Ghed states, "That's ok"
Ghed nods at Temi.
Ghed questions, "Alright, is there anything bothering anyone about TI that can be shared here and
Laniya states, "Nothing in particular just mainly seeing the lack of preists and stuff with the
order on my side."
Ghed says, "The priestly Order always has a difficult retention rate"
Edison states, "What if we get the priests skateboards"
Temi states, "It is hard to keep active Orderites around and happy, yeah. Always up for listening
to novel ways to approach that."
say I've got nothing to suggest.
Rambling states, "I've got nothing to suggest."
HIEROPHANT says, "I will say in a very general sense"
HIEROPHANT states, "It feels like TI's guild infrastructure was meant for far more people, and so
we're having to adjust to the jank of not really filling every expected role and so on"
Temi states to Edison, "Well, that one is novel"
Edison eats a hand-shaped cookie, dipped in a coating of dark chocolate.
Temi nods at HIEROPHANT.
Temi says, "Part of why we haven't been considering adding more guilds."
Temi says, "I know people have suggested mercenaries again multiple times, or scholars, but we
really just don't have enough people to support what we have."
Ghed states, "Back when I started playing the Physicians had been closed and shutdown as a guild"
HIEROPHANT claims, "Not a complaint, I am content, just an observation of late that pop is down and
the guildleaders list has some tumbleweeds"
Konaa claims, "They would be interesting, but yeah. I'm curious what they did on a day to day,
vaguely, those currently disabled goods"
Konaa states, "...guilds, not goods. You see, my brain's melting"
Ghed says, "Alright, time to move on to Player Topics."
Ghed queries, "I've no topics registered, would anyone like to discuss something?"
Edison claims, "No notes <_<"
HIEROPHANT says, "Hmm. I have a general question, I suppose"
Ghed asks, "Yep?"
HIEROPHANT asks, "A few recent big public events were hosted in off-grid spaces accessible by wagon.
How's that work? Are those rooms created for those events specifically, or are there a bunch of
venues for parties and such? If I wanted to, say, hold a masquerade ball or something like that, is
that just Event RPA to set up the wagon transit?"
Temi claims, "We've created some specific for specific holidays, that we don't want to always be
accessible, but a little something special"
Konaa claims, "How many Other Duchies do you have as event rooms"
Ghed says, "Look we have an unfinished grid for Darav's capital"
Temi states, "We'd probably make them available for an event you wanted to run if there hadn't been
too much of them lately"
Ghed states, "No idea what that would have been for"
HIEROPHANT says, "Hmmmm"
Konaa states, "Geez. Eventuality for when we LOSE"
Rambling claims, "HMMMM"
Temi says, "Creating a unique one we've done for stories"
HIEROPHANT questions, "Can ST tools create rooms, or does staff have to do that?"
Ghed trails off, "We can and certainly do create rooms for events, like... Raylene's wedding in
Lothos or Silvia's Whitemarsh parties"
Ghed states, "ST tools can't create rooms no"
Ghed says, "Mostly teleport, item and npc manipulation"
HIEROPHANT claims, "Hmmmmm"
Temi states, "But there are lots of great places on grid too. We'd probably lean towards unique
things that don't have a niche or need somewhere different for a specific story"
Ghed claims, "Yeah, that too"
HIEROPHANT claims, "Okay. That's all I wanted to know, largely, thanks."
Ghed claims, "Of course. Happy to help and coach anyone with STs."
Ghed states, "They are wonderful things to create player histories, they used to be very common up
to, say, 2020"
say Maybe someday.
Rambling says, "Maybe someday."
Ghed trails off, "I ran a lot of them... a lot"
Ghed states, "Now I'm staff so I can just do what I want, lol, to give you all good entertainment"
say I'm afraid if I do I might lose my mind and run something jank.
Rambling claims, "I'm afraid if I do I might lose my mind and run something jank."
Edison finishes abruptly, "See - if you run STs you can usurp Ghed's power"
Ghed says, "Eventually"
Ghed muses to HIEROPHANT, "Anyways -- does that help?"
Ghed says, "Maybe he's afk"
Ghed asks, "Anyways -- did anyone want to talk about anything else?"
Edison says, "Nah, I'm happy, hope y'all are happy too"
HIEROPHANT claims, "Oh. Uh. Yeah, my question was answered, yes."
Ghed claims, "Alrighty, then it looks like I can send you back a bit early"
Ghed says, "Please remember to post rumors, cnote discoveries, and recommend each other for
meaningful RP =)"
Ghed trails off, "Engaging warp drive in 3..."
Ghed trails off, "2..."
Laniya declaims, "Wee!"
Ghed trails off, "1..."
