New changes and updates have gone live today on the game. We hope this makes it easier for players to get involved with RP!
Issues are ongoing RP arcs that affect the IC part of the game. The intent is to give players things that they may focus their RP around, or use as background for their RP. Some issues may be ultimately resolvable, some may linger as ever present ‘threat’ or ‘problem’ on the Grid.
Anyone may claim an issue and run with it, becoming a point of contact for other players. Anyone can just run RP relating to an issue. These are designed to be flexible! But activity around Issues will attract Storyteller and Participant Shards (our name for XP).
We’ll be populating the issues as we can and you can find them on the bottom of the Plot Page.
After careful review, we’ve made some changes to the upgrade guidelines for characters.
- We’ve removed ‘Minor Milestones’. Now, skill swaps (not skill purchases) are free, as is modifying your character Aspects (excluding the High Concept) and adding extra Aspects (up to 5 Aspects in total).
- Shards will still be given for running and posting plot related scenes, and participating in them. However, we’ve also added the Issues to that PLUS any posted scene that addresses, and progresses, the theme of the game. If you put the work in, we want to reward you.
Shards are awarded manually – when you post your scene to the website, there is a dropdown box labelled “Request Storyteller Shards”. Make sure you select YES and a request will be opened so staff can allocate the shards.
