Events "genre" / types.


  • Tutorialist

    Okay, @Thenomain is evil, and has issued me a challenge. This challenge will result in an overhaul of some of the fiddlybits in my events code.

    One will be a definition of available genres (don't panic staff will be able to add new ones).

    To make things easier I would like to have a couple of lists people can plug in without doing the commands one by one. (Instead on install they just grab the attribute and set it).

    So some thoughts.

    GENERIC/GENERAL LIST:

    • social
    • mystery
    • action
    • open
    • suspense
    • drama

    WoD:

    • changeling
    • mage
    • werewolf
    • vampire
    • mortal
    • mortal+
    • changing breed
    • immortal

    ThThe specific and generic can be mix together mind.

    Thoughts on things to go on lists?


  • Pitcrew

    I'd suggest adding an "Occult" category. I used the hell out of that as a category on TR.


  • Politics

    "risky" is one that might be good. Not really a "theme" but a good keyword for the scenes that might be riskier than others in terms of consequences for your character.

    GAME OF THRONES

    • Familial Murder
    • A Hanging!
    • Trials
    • Drunken Debauchery

  • Pitcrew

    I am not sure what these are. I set an event and these are tags to say what's likely to happen?

  • You'd probably want to add 'private' and 'invite-only' to the list, for things like the family events or private scenes somebody needs to schedule and keep the reminders for.

    I always found the 'private events' going up on the event board to be in slightly poor taste, but I understand their purpose and there seemed to be plenty of them.

    Being me, I'd probably use the heck out of a 'humor' or 'comedy' or 'campy' tag.

    'competition' might be a good one for the general category, also. It could cover anything from beauty pageants to jousts.



  • @Sunny - this list seems right to me. Everything else could be covered by the generic tags.


  • Tutorialist

    @Sunny @JinShei @surreality Thank you!

    I'll add those to the list of prebuilt "genres".

    RE: private events, it's always been a want of mine to be able to make +Event/private -- which is visible only to staff and the players invited (and would in theory only notify those players). Taking out notification to the +Bbs, and changing how people see new +Events may make this a little easier.

    Hhm. May need to make a private / non-private tag for events. HHHHM.
