+1 like! I'm going to submit something before then.
Years away and find this alert email from January 3 buried in the bunch. I figured maybe over the years a email for my PBEM games or on some of the few short story ideas but not this forum. lol
Bonsoir mes amis,
I am taking a break from TNES to run a board game based around a fantasy region inspired by the intrigue, politics, and culture of the Italian Renaissance. You can play as a lord, a merchant, a criminal, a mercenary, or even a populist uprising, and their family, friends and associates.
You can find a draft of the ruleset here, and of the geographic map here.
There is still some time for me to customize some of the local setting if you have a particular faction in mind. I will probably launch the thread with my players already chosen and placed on the map, so if you want to play a game of this type, please read the rules and then send me a message on the NES discord or #nes IRC chat.
Thlayli, first of all it sounds very cool so to you What time were you thinking about launching this one?
I also had a general point of discussion. On the forum we now have both a lack of players and moderators. While GM's inability to update for whatever reason is not new to NESing, I believe that the lack of player participation is. One way to address that might be in releasing updates more regularly regardless of player participation. NESing is a game stretched in time and its hard to keep motivation for longer projects in this day. As a solution for this, a GM could, I do say could, update regularly without much player participation. This would allow the story of a NES to develop, show GMs commitment and based on that to attract players. If people drop out or have a long break in the game then the game would still go on. I believe that it might be better to sacrifice some control of one's own nations for a turn or two rather than wait for player's orders that might never come. What do you guys think? Turning NESing into more "stories" when the game calls for it?
I would agree that updates of any sort keep people interested and will attract new players. Too few players may frustrate the mod, but no updates is a quick way to see players drop out. Says the guy who has not been active here for almost a decade.....
Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I have launched a new project, a galactic empires / sandbox NES: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/daftnes-vi-of-light-and-dust.654779/
It's been about six years, but bizarrely I've updated Our Terrible Purpose. You may find it here, listed under Ill Things Come to Those Who Wait. The vast majority of content may also be found therein. If any players have stories I've missed for my selection, please feel free to find me on #nes.
OTP updates on an anomic schedule beyond mundane comprehension.
