Another reminder about stats and social scores, especially since we are getting a fresh wave of new concepts. Your story and RP reflects the character you are playing, which has to be backed up by the stats as well. If you don't invest in the proper stats, and skills, your character will struggle and a DM may have a word with you if the RP does not correspond with the stats.

I like competitive plotlines between player groups, ideally ones which don't -require- those groups ever even meeting in game (though that can be pretty cool) as this stops time zones being a problem.
I extremely rarely run events, but they come in two forms:
I spend a week (or more) building and scripting custom stuff, and it's either some kind of dungeon crawl, or some "DMless" plot anyone can interact with (that is normally competitive) -These ones normally affect the setting itself, or factions (player or DM) as opposed to individual characters.
I spot some players in game doing cool stuff, and run something "on the fly" - normally after telling at least one of the players in the group to slow whatever they are doing down a bit so I can do some pre-set up (these are normally the ones that directly affect individual character story lines)
In the coming days there will be a new CoA plan in place. As a primer though to help in the intervening time
The White Witch has been defeated and the horde driven off
Obyn Misrim is now the Lord Misim and Baron/ruler of Tilverton
Islyn Misrim has married Eskil Mossmere
First Peer Jastyne Vaylan has resigned and left the area, following the path of a warrior of Tempus
Eveningstar is now a Lathanderite Bishopric and ruled by High Dawnlord Charisbonde
The Redwood will be undergoing some changes
Arabel and surrounding areas (TBA) is ruled by King Matrim and Queen Kestrel
There are going to be new factions building upon the successful test run of two player driven factions (More of that to come)
We've some ideas but now is a great time to hit the ground running with concepts and help influence/build the setting.
By in large this plot, any rewards, and updates are completed. We've tried to get the information properly updated and communicated on the forums and within the game/module. Please contact us if you have some questions or are unsure about what a change means.
This is still happening far too much. To reiterate do not use Discord, tells in game to communicate or influence what should be dealt with in game.
Examples would be
Hey, I'm thinking about killing xyz pc, wanna help?
What would your pc think about abc?
Well I got this reward from a DM so must be onto something and player 123's character is wrong
Here are all the reasons why I think your character is wrong and why my character is correct.
OMG that event was awesome. So glad we've finally managed to kill "BAD GUY" and recover that awesome "ITEM OF WIN"
Some examples of what tells and discord should be used for
Saw you just logged in, we just made a sending to do ogres, wanna come?
You going to be around for a bit? Need to chat. Will do a sending.
Safe to respawn?
You going to respawn or you want to be raised?
Can you log in? My character needs to talk to you. I'll do a sending.
Hey I'm thinking about making a pc that is all about 456. Anyone around to help?
We've had the ability to use messages forever and common sense seemed to have been sufficient. Recently, there has been too much (from reported incidents by players) of OOC being used to influence, discuss, and solicit responses about IC issues that should be handled in game.
Out of respect for your fellows in the community, we are asking this be stopped so the DM team doesn't have to take action such as deleting the character involved or stronger measures.
Some, not all, Factions have some blood in them. My standing offer is still there. If you want to join a Faction (particularly but not limited to the Wildwalkers or Precept) let me know and I can fast track you with a prelude.
Similarly, if you want to start a PC Faction with some buddies let me know and I’ll happily run an introduction for you. Seter has recently set-up a fun PC Faction which had a prelude and is still accepting membership with the shared background, speak with him if interested.
Plots are beginning to bubble up In Game just waiting for your spin on things.
