We are so excited to see this thread developing and all the different ideas and contributions. Thank you, Alexia, for starting this conversation. The Roleplay Staff have been discussing your suggestions and considering how we might best implement your recommendations. To that end, we have a couple of questions for the community!
First, in developing a setting it’s always good for us to have a central idea: a focal point. We would like to get some feedback/input on a Bookstore or Library Setting
1. Would you prefer to see a bookstore or a library
2. What would the central features
of this place be? Note, we find it most helpful to focus on one-three features at the most when developing our settings and descriptions. From the thread, we’ve pulled out a few themes, please highlight the ones you are most drawn to:
- Internet cafe
- Pastry/coffee shop
- Large and numerous shelves
- Ancient tomes
- No staff (magically takes care of itself) or Staff NPCs?
- Lots of rooms or one central room?
- Other features we haven’t talked about?
3. Do you have any name suggestions
for this bookstore/library?
You can add your feedback/thoughts to this thread, send a Private Message to any of our RP Staff (Michelle Montoya
, Mallory Maeda
, Ebon Ilnaren
), or send us a Direct Message on Discord (Anne Ellis#0253, Miskatonic09
Second, we want to acknowledge the other requests for additional specific settings such as a Dockside Setting, New Haven Setting, or bringing back Seaside Beach. This has led the RP staff into a broader discussion about how many settings is appropriate for a community of our size and how ‘active’ is active enough for us to keep a channel. This discussion is ongoing and we will be seeking community feedback in a separate thread later this month. So stay tuned for more details!
Last, but not least, we have a planned launch for our seasonal Orktoberfest setting this weekend. Launching Orktoberfest does not mean we are ignoring your requests, but rather moving forward with a much loved annual setting that received positive participation in years prior. The Solarium will also continue as a seasonal setting this month.
In the meantime, we look forward to receiving your continuing input and feedback regarding a Bookstore / Library setting!
