We're kicking off the full open of the game with a week-long series of event as the PCs (residents of the Sanctuary) travel to Bartertown to cement a deal between the two. This a a great time to come and give the game a try, and we've put up 10 pre-made Tier 1 characters for just that purpose. Each was created without a specified gender or description so you can personalize them to suit your preferences. You can see a list of them at http://www.lastroadmu.com/roster. The three that have profile icons and are set app-only are not the Tier 1 pregens.
Things kick off Sunday with the convoy trip to Bartertown, starting at 4pm Eastern US. It will be an all-day RP event. More events will run throughout the week.
I completely forgot to check back on this thread, but people seem to have replied to upcoming questions just fine already. :)
You can also find a summary of what Evennia is under the Overview section on the main https://www.evennia.com homepage.
October 1707. The coast of Cornwall is a windswept, exposed place, and a huge, unprecedented storm coming in off the Atlantic could mean danger, it could mean battening down the hatches, or for the entrepreneurs of Penmarth, it could mean profit.
Trelawney Cove is officially switching to open beta from the beginning of November, and we’re launching with a slow-safe week of action from 24th October around one of the greatest storms in British history, for those who want to be involved.
We are above all a collaborative sandbox game, deliberately aimed at those of us with less time or ability to play constantly, whether through illness, family, children, work, or just 2020 on the whole. Staff do not run plots out all the time - instead we provide the buckets and spades, the tools for RP, support and ideas, and we improvise together to build a beautiful sandcastle.
Now is a good time to get a character on the grid if you’d like to help build our story. You don’t need to be a historian to play - if you can smell the salt air and the whiff of gunpowder on the breeze, if you can feel the resentment in this small town for the threat of the authorities, or the oppression of the outside world for our safe haven of Penmarth, drop by and find your place with us.
I had a lot of fun on the game, unfortunately RL just got in my way. My activity in both TSS and Arx went to zilch. Just a lot of mental fatigue from work and RL, my creativity has hit rock bottom. Hopefully I can find the spark again to want to write and RP sometime in the future.
I also think the survey can be a very good source of valuable information for game runners who care about the game. Sort of like an exit interview which can be answered anonymously.
@EvilFerret Thanks. I appreciate it, but I have decided that a guy who is completely new to staffing trying to run a game all on his own and not even trying to find additional help and also pre-banning everyone in an entire town as well as multiple VPN tunnels because of one "troll" is enough red flags for me. As much as I am itching for a republic era game, I figure someone else is going to come along with another one done the right way in the next year or two, given the direction of the media currently.
In my mind, trying to staff alone or joining a game with only 1 staff member is never a good idea. Because we are all human and not only can we not do everything ourselves, we need accountability. Myself included. I would never, ever staff alone, because I don't trust myself.
There's a calendar blip in which everyone in encouraged to have some fun time-tornado shenanigans. Did you go to sleep and wake up in a totally different house? With a dog you don't remember getting? Also exactly when did you start this new job??
People coming in from outside town can absolutely use this as an in for why they showed up. 'THIS THING WHERE 12 WEEKS VANISHED, WTF?' is a perfectly good reason to arrive at the seeming locus of this weird.
The part where the rest of the (mundane) world seems to think this_is_fine.jpg while everyone with in town woke up almost certain they left the stove on or felt an earthquake is a good reason to be Looking For Answers.
Just a heads up, that server has gotten a little spotty (its the Rhost Mu server, a few of them are in semi-retirement). We will work to get it on Silvertree, the host has backups and long lasting batteries for power outtages and keeps us better informed. Sorry for inconveniences.
