Does this mean this project is dead? D:
The project has always been on a “when it’s finished” timetable. Chances are good that by the time Changeling comes out, everyone will have forgotten about it and be amazed and thrilled to see it.
Also: 2018, Onyx Path? Really?
I apologize for vanishing.
I left the the hobby altogether. I was waiting for burnout to fade before diving back in, and it never did. Not for a year, anyway.
All of you in NEXT deserved better, and I am sorry I left you adrift.
On-topic: the limitations of a mature game are real, and finding a meaningful-feeling niche can be difficult.
The bottom line for me is that Trakata and Malacia were even-handed staffers.
I shared the worries others had when they were elevated to wizard. Giving greater authority to already-important PCs can be a terrible mistake, but those fears haven't been born out by my experience. The game isn't their playground. They're working to do right by their players.
I recommend trying Dawn of Defiance out to see if it's a fit for you.

I am still kind of torn about this game. I kind of want to try it because Gany is just making me laugh about what is possible there, but I am still torn due to the lack of politics, and yet somehow it is still a L&L game... it confuzzles mah (admittedly not sober) brain.
Put it this way.
Sure, there are lords and ladies there. Everyone's a lord or lady. But it isn't a high fantasy setting. This is a medieval game.
Not all lords and ladies are first-born and ready to inherit land, or be married to solidify a deal. Many families have many heirs, and the ones whose estates aren't so grand, well, there's little to do but go adventuring. In this context, there's threats from all sides. There are faeries. And there's that Arthurian feel.
About the flagon? Yes. It's a magic flagon of panty-dropping. Seriously. Basically.
The game uses FS3, so it's easy to start up on. Activity tends to be higher on business hours EST and late CST.

Never heard of builders being offered pay, since the supply of builders if much larger than coders.
Damn, and I built our grid for free. :|
This, this right here, what I'm giving you right now, it my glaring face. I just completely re-coded +shift for you for free. Okay, I'm mostly kidding in my glare. Mostly.
I really should charge for the data entry, tho. I love to code, but data entry for some strange reason makes me tense, which over time makes me nauseous. I think it's because I don't focus my eyes as tightly as others can (c.f. my war against ansi), but any time I have to turn a large amount of numbers from an RPG book (say, feral forms or something), I know that I want to do almost anything else. Insert something funny but also kind of disturbing here.
They should be back soon to help. <3 <3 <3 Thank you for hanging in there in the meantime.
Heart attacks suck.
Edit: i'd be fine with punting you some $$$ next month actually. Right now we're having to raise $2200 in 10 days to unexpectedly move to a better place because mold (pipe backed up, I had to shovel slime out of the middle of the house). Bonus: directly behind the strip, gated community.
Sorry for being unclear!
It's a crime saga MUSH based on leverage politics, at the level of syndicate management, organizational politics, and political intrigue between roles. There are ten global syndicate cultures that rule regions, the particular personality of the culture decided by leadership (all OC). All of it is beneath the hand of the Yakuza in a global council, like Dune, with the syndicates cooperating with each other, or competing, sometimes violently. There is an economics system with NPC power accrued by roleplaying and using a coded system to establish various IC landmarks, an NPC list of staff-played characters to use as IC objectives (that you can submit to), a skill roll competition system that plays into the advancement system (that also works with the IC landmarks), and an open-ended game world that encourages creativity, world building, and clever manipulation of other players IC. It's set in the near future, 2070 AD, after the Yakuza has united the world's organized crime syndicates underneath a 'Commission', Lucky Luciano's term for an organized Mafia unit spanning many syndicates that met together to decide on matters of dispute.
It's essentially Dune meets Shadowrun.
Sadly I just never quite found my footing with this game. I'm honestly not entirely sure why, we had a good start but things just sort of fizzled and my attempts to rekindle it never quite worked out. In addition, my interests are beginning to shift from the superhero genre to things more horror and fantasy related. As such I have officially closed DC Rebirth. The site will remain up for another week if anyone wants to grab any decomps or anything.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by. I had a great time there with my PCs and I will certainly miss the RP. We had a small player base throughout but you were all fantastic. Thanks for the memories. :)
@Meg said in Naruto MUSH Legacy:
@Benzaiten To be honest, it sounds closer to 'no consent' than limited consent. Let's call it Extra Limited Consent.
Saying that you can avoid getting killed by avoiding RP doesn't make it limited consent.
That right there has been one of my major turn-offs as well. Not only are there people with a significant head-start but the game is for all intents and purposes no-consent. Avoiding role-play to avoid consequences isn't a form of consent, that's just called inactivity. Consent is when people have to ask you before they do certain things to you regardless of your actions. If role-playing with someone means you automatically consent to maybe being killed then your game is no-consent because you're saying by partaking in the primary method of interaction with other players you waive consent.
Some of my development team was swept away due to RL, so I am once again in need of help. I am looking for a Coder who will be able to make a +rent system, as well as a +home system that was thought up by one of the people who RL took from the team. Also looking for someone willing to help with new files and can bring ideas to the board. Connect info is the same, hope to hear from some of you soon! :)

Time has been a little limited lately. Plus, everyone seems to be hawking for the Shrike to return.
Pidge is on my +watch. I haven't seen it around. I want my money back.
An alternative to getting into rp on a political game, what I tend to do.
Recognize the politics. Make a char not directly involved; one that won't make a roll to determine some outcome for house or home or hearth. Those are fine, but what I do is different.
Take that character not directly involved, party sibling, one that just wants to raise crops, the one that is opposed to the meta conflict(s). Watch the politics and form a strong opinion for or against what is actually happening in news posts and gossip. Find someone and express your political views, argue if your opposed. Befriend if you agree, plot what to do about opposition. Try to have the non political type live in the face of the crazy politics going on, complain about the politics.
You'd be surprised where this can lead.
