    • Afaik Elle has internet problems and can't be here for this whole discussion. It's unfortunate, but we should wait until Elle can get a word in, too.
    • The post has been extensively updated and reworked! To explain further: it is written as if it had been done by a Refugee or someone within the Doldrums, ICly. Therefore, what you might see might just be rumors, rather than the objective truth.
    • I will have to put this off till another time sadly, a good friend of mine has unexpectedly come over. I apologise. I'll get a new date and time up shortly that better suites those interested.  
    • So this thread has been up for more than 72 hrs, when can we expect a staff response to this or is it the game of be quiet and hope it simply glosses over? 
    • Here, we present to you… the project guidelines! These guidelines and rules that we are about to present are to be used for player character projects. Some examples would include researching to get teleportation to work in the Doldrums. Perhaps you are aiming to make a special type of cannon ball? Basically, anything a player would like to do that isn't mechanically represented, but does require time and effort to be invested. These are to help promote RP more on the player than the Keepers hand holding them, and allows staff to keep track of things better. Payboxes can still be used, but they should no longer be the primary resource for projects: RP should take the spot, instead.   Without further ado, here are...   The Project Guidelines Players are meant to make a thread, either publicly or privately on the forums. Public ones go into the journal section, and private ones into Staff contact. It is the players' responsibility to post any documentation related to the project for Keepers to handle. Any checks, emotes, conversations, sumaries of what happened… are all aceptable. But these need to be available in the forum posts. If a player does complete a project publicly, it will also be publicly known that the project has been completed. For example, Staff will make a rumour about it, giving the PC credit for it. This is done so in order to encourage posting less sensitive things in Public, so potential players see that things -do- go on. There won't be any negatives for keeping things private. These threads should have the 'Project' Tag. Players may ask DMs 'plausibility' questions. These are OOC questions you may ask to avoid getting your time and the DM's wasted. Here we have some extreme or simple examples, so that you may get an idea.   Player: "Can I control the Old God and make him dance for everyone?" DM: "You really don't think that's possible for any single person."   Player: "Can I raise a few skeletal dogs to be my friends? :3" DM: "That's plausible, but you'll need to learn how, before you can do it."   Player: "Can I tame this raptor and make it my mount?" DM: "Currently, Shores does not allow mounts in any form."       PC Knowledge Levels A PC's IC knowledge comes from several factors. Even a profession would allow a character to understand things naturally. For example, a level 45 Mystic would understand that runes need to be altered to deal with the mana drain The Doldrums has and know how to alter it, whereas a level 15 mystic would only know that runes need that alteration, but not know how it needs to be done. Knowledge may also come from things learnt about in events, discovered in the world, or however the overseeing keeper thinks. If applicable, it might even come from a character's background! On the topic of the plausibility questions mentioned previously, you must not expect an outright OOC answer, but, rather, a light nudge or some hint that might help you. Here is another such example!   Player: "Can I build a submarine?" DM: "That's not a bad idea, but you are going to need to experiment with it, and learn the best methods over time."
