CL Event (15th year since the Rip War)

Post by Maeght » Sun Jan 12, 2014 2:00 am

The second week in May (I think) is roughly the 15th anniversary of the reset after the Ripture War.

It would be awfully cool to have a major event commemorating it in game. If DT could get behind it and put out the word, I know I could contact at least a half dozen bluebies that no longer Clan to ask them to come back at least for the event. I know the biggest barrier for some of them is just their log in credentials.

This occasion might be a good one to aim to get the word out generally. I know some folk who would be interested in a game that had lasted this long. Some special events would be a great way to draw oldies back and newbies in.

Players could organize some as well-- some expeditions to fun areas, maybe some concerts, maybe some organized duels. :)

Maeght, this is probably the best thing you have ever posted.

I love it.

Lets do this.

Agreed! I wasn't here for the war but I'm here now and I'd love to be involved.

would be cool if one of the GM's would say something like "yes, inform your friends" even with a "but don't expect too much"...
Hope my time zone would allow me to be part of it...

We did get a major event for the 10th Anniversary (the Harbingers invasion) leading to the pit in East Field with a cap on it. Perhaps it's time to uncap that hole. Or perhaps the dwarf builder in the university tunnel is going to unwittingly dig into it. The dwarves are experts at delving too deep.

Wooo! Inspiration!
New Nexus expansion to:
* Rainforest (cuz rowing there is boring)
* Tepui (cuz we need to get up the vine spot)
* Crypt (cuz Natas wants it so bad)
* BP Outpost (cuz it's awesome)
* Est Mountains Village (cuz Stinky wants it so bad - and not only him)
* Ranger Hideout ;) (cuz it's so far from tc)
* Foothills (cuz we need it!)
* CD (so we are more variable with the portals)
* PF Book 2 (cuz more people would like to have it)
* Ash City (cuz all this esteem things are boring)
* KI Interior (cuz we need an alternative exit there)
* cloud (cuz it totally makes sense to find a path leading up into the sky! [let the magic beans grow!])

Is there a good write-up with pictures to introduce people to CL? Posting something like that on, say, reddit or somethingawful that has games discussion area might be a good idea.

If there were events or some big event, it would be good to stagger them or make them last a good long while, so they covered several time zones.

Maybe it should start with something dire and end with a celebration involving silly things like the carnival? And there should be a some commemorative item/s. :)

Nice idea. Would need some 'pre warning' to get oldies back in time.
