City of Arabel WiP


  • DMs

    Greetings one and all!

    Let me begin by saying sorry. It's been a tough year for our beloved City of Arabel. The DM team has been transitory and for a variety of reasons, we've been unable to maintain the setting, implement the new content, and have a steady presence IG.

    We acknowledge that there have been some situations and decisions made that were controversial, and perhaps we'd have dealt with some differently in hindsight. What's done is done and we are looking to move forward. The strength of CoA has always been it's community, something this past year we've seen diminished. Some have moved on from gaming, some have moved elsewhere, some have been asked to leave. With this in mind, we have decided to give those who have been removed from that community a second chance with a Blanket Unbanning and a new clean slate for a New CoA Era. We hope that those who have left will give us a second chance as well.

    To facilitate a CoA revival we are doing a few things.

    • We've created a new DM position called Storyteller. These Storytellers were drawn from the player base for their ability to, well, tell great stories with their PCs. We're empowering them now with DM tools to breath life and FUN into the server. They'll be running plots, spicing quests, helping players tell their story without having to worry about the admin/scripting/policy type stuff. Stay tuned for announcements from them.

    • We've also created an Admin DM position. These are the current DMs who will carry on with the overall running of the server and support the Storytellers with their efforts and bringing the Fun.

    • Over the coming week(s) Puffy and PuffHub are going through all the messed up scripts to see what can be salvaged/scraped/redone etc.

    • We want to make it fun for those times for when you find yourself alone by selectively modifying some quests to make them solo-able.

    • We've restarted the v6 discussion (Setting, Timeline, Stories, Areas, NPCs, Quests etc.) so please send any suggestions and ideas our way. If you've been thinking about a return or just popping by, come say hi.

    • And finally, with the announcement of our New Storyteller DMs will come the return of the ever beloved App-less Week. If you've had a concept in the back of your mind for a while, bring it to life now and let it loose in the stories our new DMs are going to spin.
