A combination of wild arguments, vaurature? retiring and manofret absorbing them without difficulty to modly powers. That meant that when phoriist came along he managed to win a vote and get it closed for a more rigid one which in the name of decreasing arguments made it more rigid and removed the more fun parts slowly killing it as I predicted. For reference, it lasted about twice as long (no premature death though) but had something like less than half the activity. I had the plans on how to do it better (like you need a person not playing to run it) and to actually get some ideas instead of rushing into things foolishly. I could revive it properly if people wanted, go back to the much more freeform style and just track stuff myself, I could even combine it with a mod planning system so it produces awesomeness all around, the first one was still increasing in activity when it got killed though (the second one was a lot less boisterous, one of the things that doomed it) so it could be big. I’d just privately track things better, rigidity came at a cost after all so I’d scrap it for the primary rule. Is it feasible? If so, go nuts, otherwise try again. Things like moderating history slowed down the crazy after all and the crazy was most of the fun.
Would you like that? I could go ahead and do it if people wanted.
Now to un-derail the thread. FIRE!!
Problems of dealing with fire, how to track damage and results. You’d need to track three main things as I see it.
- Flammability: related to actually being on fire and the chances of catching fire
- Durability: How long it can last before burning
- Result: what it leaves after being burnt, e.g. wood leaves ash/nothing, stone+wood table leaves ash and/or stone table top, akrobi webbing leaves weird gloop
The main problem will be composite products (can be handwaved away mostly) and what happens when something stop burning part way through. Does it remain damaged? can it be repaired? what if it was enough it should have burned away some of it but not all? or different outputs (charred wood vs ash)? Interesting stuff all round, be a worse medieval fantasy sim without fire though. Until someone added it anyway.
