World Plot 2013

Post by Solomon Kane » 2012-12-03

Good evening everyone! I am sure folks everywhere are curious about the next world plot for Darkon, and would like to make suggestions. So I thought I would start a thread here.

My idea for a world plot would be called Dragons Rising. Dragon Flights would be seen all over darkon$ why have these beasts awaken in force? Why are they razing every country? They seem to be searching for something or someone.....

Just an idea, but I am trying to get more involved in every aspect of darkon....let's toss around some ideas and get the ball rolling for next year.

The biggest problem is dragons suck balls to fight in Darkon... they aren't fun.

Yep and arent particularly hard with a large enough group. Undead was cool but with the abundance of Holy Weapons and things like USG and that Kindred Turn Undead banner, they were killed far too easily.

I am working on an ongoing land event that I am going to try to run in 2013 should there be interest.

Lots of NPCs on the chart to incorporate into a plot. Daemon invasion, Orcish/Goblinoid Horde, Angry Peasants...

That sounds awesome.

One idea I had after reading it:

If you do things based on the land map, if there is a mine, the peasants from there should get swords and swing red, because they're using mining picks.

I am not 100% sure, but Cailen is looking into something that may need to be tied into/become the basis of the world plot.

I like the notion of tying in the world plot to raising those new Islands Cailen is talking about IC. Possibly bringing up something unexpected. Treasure? Doom? Neat Dungeons to explore? Who knows?

Within 2 weeks will have the islands sorted out ... over 30 people have access to the discussion group and if you want to be involved in it please send me a fb note or a note in here looks like it will be fun ... not take up too much time will make the overall land sessions (for 8 months) be easier on the land marshal and run quicker because of less indivual events being done and can be added to or run totally seperate but at the same time as the world plot for 2013.

It is a voluntary mod for warring with teams from 1 to 6 members on a team - 8 islands each a lil different - new creatures to be cleared before anyone can collect war points - a single country can send in 8 teams to represent it if they have that many people chosing which island to go war on smaller countries will have to weigh in the pros and cons of each island and the restrictions on each to cherry pick where they want to enter and compete... ect :) No indivual country or retinue will be able to send more then one team to any indivual island. So smaller countries will have equal numbers as others when they go to chose a Island to fight on.

All the islands are set up same time and all people in the mod take a random place on each island by tokens that are keyed to the island they want to go to. The tokens are passeges threw a portal pole to the islands for each team. It will be run like blood of heros in that a gong will be struck to time all the battles happening simaltainusly. You have to be the last standing team or indivual to win on that island - points will be tallied and added to overall scores for the duration of the mod running and titles and prizes will be given in the end for winning and possibly other things.

In service,

I think they should make islands to fight on inside the islands in case people's feelings get too hurt over fighting for islands.

I wouldn't complain about this too much, it could get you somewhere... I know how much you love war and all. You guys could claim a certain island as your own, demanding that you hold it and nobody else can have it, and if anybody tries to fight you on it, you could call it an act of aggression and go to war with them.

If Patrick comes to Darkon in full King Candy regalia Chosen Blood will vote for this in Senate.

I THINK based on other conversations these would be 'events' with Elders from the World Plot Committee or what ever group is responsible for running it or some other source and not something you have to manage. The thought is it may reduce the number of land events you have to manage??

Still reading everything but I think that is the gist

yes Lord Dubh has it exactly correct ...

to participate you will not be able to do a offensive land action that event

we will; set up and elder these mini events

they as a whole will not run more then 30 minutes front to back even with getting people into position

as a whole each day event you will have a decreased amount of events you will have to monitor and deal with

Okay, that one doesn't even have candy on him, come on. These are important nerf battle futures at stake.

It seems that you look down far enough in that search, you get chicks in bikinis. Everything comes full circle.

I suppose it would probably be difficult to do any image search on Google that didn't end with chicks in bikinis and fat naked guys with lollipops. These are the internets, after all.

Sounds good to me. If you need a copy of the current monster charts to give you an idea of where you want to go with monsters let me know. Be happy to provide them

Also do you want these islands on the map?

snudge would be nice to have them on the map as a locator and for rp ... but they are about the size of 3 large ships each - they each will only be accessable threw the portal - they have a crystal see threw "bubble" around thier edge not allowing passage of anything threw the crystal wall

so they are like a ship really boats can pass threw the hex they are in but they can only pull up, set up a chair on deck and watch what is going on inside if they like :)

this is the current way we are leaning on it as a first run
