Please feel free to move if this is in the wrong place. I debated between General and Proposals, and in the end flipped a coin.
It was recently mentioned in the Discord server that there should be more quests and events to spark interest in the game. While events do generate some activity, they can also be very hit or miss. Sometimes the lack of players is simply due to timing, which is understandable when you have players in different time zones, but sometimes there is a lack of interest in the actual event. Which brings me to my question...
What do YOU want to see on the quests and events calendar?
Not all events and quests need to be big GM oriented things like Mas.
Examples of events in the past:
Arena fights (Characters battling arena monsters like gladiators with an audience. Great chance to make coin placing bets!)
Anything that requires a group of people gathering in the same spot can be an event or a quest. We don't need a GM dropping a bone dragon on top of The Unicorn Lion to have fun. (Though it would be fun to watch Hassan scramble to beat it with a fan) Let's brainstorm together and figure out what is going to make us want to set aside a couple of hours for Illarion.
Can we ask for GM assistance? Absolutely, as long as we ask nicely and are willing to understand that they are human too. Yes, I know we only have one active GM... and that he must love abuse to have been doing this so long... and we're not really sure he's human...
My point is, Illarion is player powered. Let's use that power to make our game fun and interesting.
Does anyone want to try translating my ramblings into German? This would work best if we had input from all of our players. Thank you in advance!
