did anyone else know that most persons nicknamed Gid are actually girls, Gid is short for "Girl Kid" as many boys are called Kid, boy, Son. there are less three letter nicknames for young women so they tend to stick to Kid, Gid, and babe/baby, hun when they get older.
i always just assumed that Gid was a girl, but that doesnt impact much.... my wifes a girl... *GASP*
edit: Back on topic!
focusing on the possibility for enhancing the forum, i personally like the scribe idea, i do not like the idea of voting in and out king council members (they should be stable "monarchy") but i support voting in faction "liaisons" and i put that in quotes because i would see it as 2-5 members of a faction that can bring concerns of the others to king councils. i feel like the buffer between us players and the KC is minimal, and there should be some, so we dont harass them. the KC has bigger things to worry about than answering basic questions. the current ones are supposed to be this role i gather, but we dont really enforce it, or try to ensure that certain protocols are followed.
also i have noticed that we have one person controlling each area (brawl master , ect) i think we should have minimum two, if not three people for each area where main posts need modifying. this way if one has a RL issue come up, hits a builders block or needs a break, or even retires, we are not stuck in a rough spot.
i like the idea of GC's and LC's impacting the world, the story however i do not agree with them impacting it. not right now. that is not how we started, and putting that in right now is not a cool thing. this started as a story with builds, and should finish the current age with that. next age if we want a "choose your own adventure" via voting on GC builds and such, then so be it. but not right now.
if we do want more of an impact on the story, i do suggest that we take it in a fairly open method.
for example, GC #1 is to show the impact of the new (or returning) leaders, the queen is gone, Mally is gone, the lands are ravaged, and yes we did a GC of rebuilding, But if the GC is VERY open like just showing the impact of the FACTIONS leaders on the LOCAL land, each faction then has members looking at the leaders characteristics as they see them, and then building what the builders in game character is doing to help with the LEADERS goal. i think we also MAKE it a requirement with all GC's that there be a summery of the impacts with the story written. we then vote and then the scribe would use the winners of each factions GC to cause changes to the story, and then the winner of the GC from the factions is where the story is mainly focused/modified.
EG: GC #1 - Show the impact of your Leaders choices on your land.
- Phyrosis knows that the leader hates the Loressi, he knows that they are planning to raid the coast of their land to take slaves to speed up the building of new fortresses along the coast. the rest of the world does not know this as it was discussed in the private faction forum. to show this in his build Phyrosis is shown on his newly acquired boat (naval guild) with a small army of outlaw forces, loaned to him by the new leader, about to land on the coast, a village in terror! this is his Unrestricted build. Pyro5050 writes the impact of the build along with his story "Impact - Outlaw forces raided a small village, if deemed a successful raid, slave numbers in the outlaw lands increase and the outlaw economy improves. if deemed unsuccessful, outlaw forces are depleated and Phyrosis needs to rebuild a broken, battered, and burnt husk of a ship, or aquire a new one"
Every GC entry in my opinion should impact a persons personal character and their faction. if a person does not want to determine their own impact on the story and themself that is ok, that is why the factions should have 2-5 leaders in each one.
i can expand how i would personally do this as well,
but this is how i would do it if the story could be impacted. then, the scribe and KC decides EXACTLY how this works in. if it would break the story (outlaws voted to the top an assassination of a rival faction leader) they can award the points for GC entry, acknolwedge the build but VETO the impacts on the story due to game breaking.
yeah... i have a few more ideas.
