Renewal:

I pass through the dreamscape aimlessly, all too aware that I really should be paying more attention to what is going on. But then again, is it really that important? Over and over again I tell myself, "You're not that different. Don't worry about it! There is a place here for you." But as time goe...

Ah! Thank you Yuritau. That clarifies matters a great deal. A reduction is an entirely different pumpkin.

Power Drain Inversion?

It seems to me that the amounts levied across the various ranks of a house are inverted. I believe this also answers a question my character has had in the game regarding why houses are so ridiculously top heavy. Any house, regardless of ideology, should want an abundance of initiates. Yet, the most...

Amnesia of Convenience: A plague

To whom it may concern; You've lost your collective minds. The idea that political bodies having a "turn" should take precedence over a threat to the dreamscape itself is quite honestly, ludicrous. Under normal circumstances, we might be content to simply regard the matter as nothing more than a qu...

Re: Spell Checker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, try to remember; it's what you're "hearing" in character, not reading. Yes, some of us correct typo's when we technically, don't need to. Guilty. We also have to consider some players go against grammar rules on purpose. They use spelling and grammar errors specifically because they are creati...

Re: Weekend Madness*

To the point of the OP - I think allowing a great variety of content types, is the best idea. Activity both from the "Mares" and related story arcs and others. Team content, player content, let it happen. Consistency and regularity are key. Things feel alive when they are fluid. Jim; For what it is...

Alright, after a solid 5 minutes of pinching the bridge of my nose. People standing around and talking is core to roleplaying. "Roleplaying" occurs AT ALL TIMES , when you're logged into the game.

Re: Option to create a PvE only character?

They would have an avatar, description, ability to talk and emote. They would have the following arts and no others: Join Party, Locate, Sense, Know, and Newly Awakened

Do you think that would work with the idea you're envisioning, jimhabegger?

Re: Option to create a PvE only character?

or all the time that characters spend doing nothing but standing around chatting, whispering, and arguing, while they’re genning, waiting for teachers or for some event to happen, under a very thin layer of rp and sometimes none at all This sounds elitist and yucky.

Re: Time to reduce 5th and 6th sphere expectations

Let's be honest here. Some characters in the game are ALWAYS doing. Some characters in the game rarely do. Requiring a codified number of events is an attempt to target the low hanging fruit. We know this fruit is there. There are characters in the game that may very well be successfully having "eve...

Re: Cooperative storytelling rp?

The idea that we schedule or do an "rp" is a misnomer. We should be, all of us, roleplaying 100% of the time we're in the game.

That being said, yes, there are larger story arcs in motion currently. Some fostered by the Koi team, and many being created by player entities.

Time and again we visit the scene of our failures. Pages from memory likely to be decried as worthless, shared. The arrangement of the words carries the same weight.
