Re: Brainstorming alternatives to guild power transfer

For a lot of guilds, I think regular elections make sense. If people want to campaign, that seems to fall under what Thalric has in mind. You could argue how full the racks are due to your contributions, how many new applicants there have been due to your recruitment, how you helped form an alliance...

Re: Ability Transparency

Internally in the guilds? Sure. Readily available for everyone on every ability? Nope. The meta has become too strong in Genesis as it is and the mysteries are mostly gone. I agree. Maybe it's irreversible now, but if so that's a shame. I like helping people, and getting help when I need it, but I ...

Re: How do you 'view' Genesis?

I flip back and forth between a very "immersive" experience - by which I mean I read carefully and slowly, imagining my character and how she responds to these things - and something more outcome-based as Nils described. My game life is oddly inverse to my actual life. IRL I love time alone, and nee...

Re: Cherek does good for the realms!

There seems to be more energy around here lately, and I think that is largely due to Cherek's recent influence. Some of it may also be due to the general sense that wizards are active and listening to players, especially in terms of the engagement on Discord as well. So thank you to Cherek, and to a...

Re: Need more players, not less guilds

We have too many neutral options and players seeking them to avoid taking a side in any conflict unless it suits their particular interests. ... I can think of three options which should allow for neutrality: monks, red robed wizards, and mercenaries. The first have the penalty of being a very defe...

Re: Ability Transparency

You could also have books in the sparkle library to detail general skills. Since there is already guild information there.. or perhaps there's an old retired adventurer in the new pub that you might be able to pry the information out of. Whether that's challengin them at arm wrestling to get an ans...

Re: Need more players, not less guilds

I'm glad you made that thought public, Cherek. I'm grateful for the opportunity to say immediately that I think that is totally the wrong direction, and for the chance that others will agree and give you clear, direct feedback on it.
