New Campaign

Alright, so as it seems, the roleplay thread was a success. Now what I want to learn from you guys is how can it improve, and what would you like to do for the next campaign?

First, I would like to establish the currency system. All of you collected some gold and silver throughout the plot, but I also need to determine how much you started out with, and what you can do with your gold. I do not want to do a food buying system, nor do I really want to have you buy the little things like flint, or lumber or things like that, all of that would be low enough price to not worry about. So, that's something to mull over. I will go through the thread and see how much each of you got from the journey (plus the price of Labby's gold nugget) and add it into whatever your starter gold is.

If there are any thoughts, by all means post it on this thread. I would like to start the new campaign soonish, so be sure to let me know what all of you think.

The only thing I could really say (and have already said) was that it felt like the plot suddenly rushed in a few paces. Avoiding this runs the risk of things dragging on, so it might be better to do something a bit smaller scale next time, though with more impact of the overall plot. It could help keep energy and enjoyment a bit higher and keep things from dragging on too much.

Oh believe me, this is why we had a test campaign in the first place, and the next one should be good to go in that regard. Helping keep the energy in the campaign is a definite must. Now as for the over arcing story, I am definitely working on that part as we speak. So that is some very good input, and something we can expand on.

Can't say I have complaints in regards of the system. Although it went slower, obviously, it was like playing a regular RPG campaign like I've played before.

The plot rushing Zeon mentioned didn't really bother me because I had in mind this was just the beta, but it is something I hope to go better next time, for reasons that were mentioned already.

Alright well that's good. One other thing I'd like to bring up, would any of you want to change forums? I mean this forum is alright, but I do kind of find it annoying when I'm trying to look at the latest post and I have to scroll ALLLLLLLL the way down all of the replies to get to it. On a browser it's not so bad, but on a phone it's a little annoying. Honestly, it's not a huge deal, so if you guys are good with this forum I'll keep it up.

I'm fine with the single forum idea, though switching to the likes of an article might make navigation easier. Splitting it up into multiple forums would just be confusing.

Oh I know, I mean putting it all into another forum. We can archive the test campaign no problem. It's not going to be on two forums, that would be silly.

I think moving to another forum would be good, because many times I have to visit through my tablet and It's not nice to scroll all the way down. However, I could easily play with it, so I don't mind keeping the way it is.

Alright so last subject: Any suggestions for the next scenario? I was thinking that our next quest could lead us to maybe a castle or even a certain forest with a horrible darkness infecting it.

How about a place which isn't so dark? .-. Just a flip on the typical dungeon I guess. Maybe like an extremely sunny and windy mountain top, or a volcano? I dunno, just throwing stuff out there.
