We've gained a few more watchers and there are some old vets returning. We've gotten a couple more interested parties who are working on their apps. The second we get 10 active members, I'll start scheduling for the actual relaunch event.
For those of you from Season One, there are going to be a few changes:
- Chat RP is still the main focus of the group, however, events will now have a "draw to participate" option. I am hesitant to add a point system, as I like the group to also be open to those who cannot draw, but let me know if this is something you'd be interested in doing.
- There are a few minor changes to the rules, but nothing that should have a huge impact on how you played in the past. For the most part, they've been overhauled to be more lax.
Right now, the group has THREE factions (TIAMAT, Civilians, and Supporters), however, there is a FOURTH faction I would like to include and will add their information to the play journals shortly.
- DATA (Diversions and Telegraphed Anarchy) is a crime "organization" that commits felonies to divert Droid activity from crowded places. They use tactics to draw Droids away from civilians, and though their actions are not considered "just" by most, the gang thinks of itself as an entity to be praised. DATA events and protests are posted to an online board, but nobody knows who runs the board or who organizes their events. Slowly the name has worked its way into whispers on street corners, but their actions remain a mystery. Anthym fears that DATA puts TIAMAT at risk and that their actions are brash, and sees them as an obstacle.
- We'd like to implement more hobbies and activities for characters to make for more "fun" events rather than constant tactical espionage. Elements of the UtNL universe (augments, RushDRIFT) are what make the game's world more tangible. So we're working on developing new ideas for recreation. If you have any ideas, please feel free to suggest them. Sports (hover boarding, etc), arcade-style games (laser tag, etc), drugs (viruses for androids, strange properties, etc), dream recording/event sharing, etc. Feel free to make suggestions.
Please continue to comment if you're interested in joining/working on an app, as well as any suggestions or comments you have for the group. Tell your friends, have your friends tell their friends! The more exposure the group gets, the faster we can relaunch.
