    Actually, can we change the banner to 'Morbid Dirks?'

    Now that I've had some time to simmer down a little I think we can continue to toss ideas around.

    I think, going forward a lot of my own things that I have been working on is interaction with other players. Namely I want to write with other people I have not written with before. Some of us prefer to write our own lore, our own stories and that's fine. But in my honest opinion it does not reflect what Althanas should be about. To whom it may concern, (Tony or Jack) I have a proposition for you guys. Keep experience rates normal for solo stuff, etc, but I propose that we add an exp modifier when a thread involves two+ writers. A bonus of some sort for threads that include newer partners.

    I think the Stonevale exp bonus is brilliant and I'd like to see waaay more of that sort of stuff going on.

    Maybe not on a region per region basis, but at least for Moderated Quests for example (Already a thing as I understand it) have an extra exp modifier when writers write together and create an amazing work. But yes I'm getting a little pumped up here. I'm thinking that the Stonevale exp modifier could even be increased for applicable writers who complete threads there. I for one, intend to use Stonevale a lot more in my own stories.

    But basically where I'm coming from is I'd like to see waaaay more exp multipliers. As I mentioned before I'm aware that this is already in play on site policy. I just wanna see it occur more often. I think it would most def help bolster site activity.

    I'll chime in once I have more ideas to contribute.

    Maybe a modifier for when an experienced player takes a new player under their wing would be good Pav, which encourages growth, diversity and retention of new people.
    So I’m cutting that branch off the cherry tree.
    Singing this will be my victory.
    Then I, I see them coming after me.
    And they’re following me across the sea.
    And now they’re stinging my friends and my family.
    And I, I don’t know why this is happening.

    We used to have such a system in place, called the mentor system, but few people used it and it went quiet. I would be up for looking at re-instating it, if it's done properly.

    The mentor/mentee system has some idea to be brought back in with the new ideas for Stonevale.

    Yeah I think bringing back the mentor system would be brilliant.

    But what I was also suggesting was a reward system in place (Some sort of small incentive doesn't have to even be a HUGE thing lol) for when writers work with new writers for the first time. (I know we have a thing in place for when writers complete a series of threads that are continuing off one another) That's what I was trying to get at. Sorry if I was not clear enough in my post.

    But what I am suggesting is more rewards for people who do group/team threads. (For example) I often make it a point to write with many people I've never written with before. I just think it is a fun practice especially on a community site like ours. My idea is simply to provide more incentives for people to work together and complete long and interesting stories together. (Keep in mind I'm not even saying JC quality saga's but just saga's in general) But yeah that's my thoughts on the matter so far.

    Keep up the great work everyone so far!!!

    Yeah, I can definitely see where you're coming from Pav. I'm really interested in story arcs, the big overall picture and writing threads as though they were chapters in a book. These ideas might encourage some others to think along similar lines, helping them develop their characters in greater detail and giving them more direction and goals.

    There's also a probability people write for longer and enjoy their time more if they have writing partners or a group to interact with, especially if they're travelling the unfolding road of a grand epic.
    So I’m cutting that branch off the cherry tree.
    Singing this will be my victory.
