Common knowledge

Post  Valerion on Wed Oct 24, 2012 2:43 am

Hey, this is a small call to the DMs that do greater plots, I ask you to make a short list of things commonly known to happen/have happened ingame, be it about Characters that have a well known reputation, be it happenings like demons coming, rifts opening and closing inside of towns and so on. Anything most people would recognize and know.

Why I request this? Because recently I have seen that almost every new player that joins the server, has no knowledge of anything happening if not told, yet the most players refrain from ICly telling them of the momentary situation due to the amount of time it would take to sum up every detail or story their character knows.

So a small list of "common knowledge" could help them to keep informed, and be quicker about finding a link to join in into RP and Plot of the running bigger plotline, otherwise than standing aside something that happens and just feeling like "What am I doing here...and what is happening?"

I know noone needs to know everything, like lovestories between characters or hidden secrets or detailed reports of battles and what someone did wrong or good etcetera ecetera ecetera, but with some common knowledge they may have an idea of what is going on, and where to go to, and where to offer their help, be it evil or good^^.

after each event that would send out a wave in rumors and such post in a rumor thread, it will give a summary so the new players can tell a little of whats going on.
