Eventide Posted March 19, 2016 Report Share Posted March 19, 2016 Hey. I gather there have been a few recent important historical events in WoE. In an RP, an attack on the crystal empire was brought up, by caribous apparently. I'm not sure of how to form my character's reaction since, OOCly, I don't know about it. I could search for the RP threads of the event and read through them to learn about it, but that seems inconvenient and time consuming. I would prefer not to dig around RP threads for setting information and context whenever a significant event that my characters should know about is brought up. I can also ask a player about what happened, though I get the feeling the same question might continue being asked by other new players. My suggestion is, there could be a section in the world and lore archive for summaries of such events, maybe even some kind of timeline. I guess long-time players might add to it, for new players to have an idea of what has happened in recent years. Really it could be no more than a sentence and I'd be happy. Having the history available might also provide some prompt for future RPs. To clarify: I don't expect someone to go through all of the RP threads and report each detail, for the same reason I don't want to have to find them myself, we just don't have that kind of free time. I'm picturing brief summaries from memory, just enough about what happened to know and be able to respond about it in-character. No doubt it'd be something that would only expand gradually. I think it would make the site a little more accessible for new players. It might be fun to read through accounts of previous episodes in WoE history, kind of like a documentary I suppose. I'm a bit nervous to make this suggestion, but feel free to disagree, don't hold back, and tell me why. What do you guys think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
