Has anyone else noticed that there is currently an absence in the area of Regional Challenges? Someone needs to come up with one.

Has anyone else noticed that there is currently an absence in the area of Regional Challenges? Someone needs to come up with one.

This is a good thread to use for coming up with ideas. Here is what was discussed for this month:

No Regional Challenge when there is a Universal Challenge going on. We want people to be especially active in the challenges where it advances the story of the land.

Here is the comment: http://www.mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=22435&topicid=88670#comment-1187007

Here an idea.

Persuasion- Show your character being persuaded, or persuading someone in order to gain their trust or obtain something desired.

Perhaps, But what if we focused attention to Rainos...as it's greatly lacking members.

Betrayal:
Rainos armies our looking for good strong men, come away from the outlaws and help us stride toward a new future.

Show your character either assisting Rainos in their campaign, joining Rainos, or trying to extinguish their fire.



Yeah, that pretty bad:/ But we need to sway attention to Rainos...it's numbers are to few!

Thanks, but I'm more worried about the pirates than Rainos. They only have two members to our four. Maybe both factions could be in the same challenge....
I have an idea!
Persuasion:
Rainos and Enalica are recruiting members to increase their forces, but the other three factions aren't happy about this. If you are a pirate or a barbarian, have your character try to convince someone to join your side. If you belong to another faction, resist persuasion by any means necessary... or give in. A second option for anyone is to make a propaganda MOC to convince people to or to not join one of the two factions concerned.

Good point. With only one challenge slot per month, it's hard to wait on a something that moves the entire story along.

What about every other month there are two things? One universal, two regional, one regional, one regional and one universal, etc?

What about putting up a news thread, one locked to normal members that the admins can use to post story updates in? That way we wouldn't have to bother with more challenges- the story would continue regardless.
I think it could have daily updates with random news, important or otherwise, with overviews of every challenge and the non-story updates as well.

We could take turns with daily, semi-random news items, and a comment could be added by everyone who posts a challenge or new game mechanism.

I just read through the entire thread...
And things are getting a little of topic!

My response to the regional challenge:
(Mythron) Defending our home!

Fortify, Mythron's city of Tomeu has recently been taken.
Now it's time to fight for what we have left!
Show your Character fortifying any city they are currently in...
This could be anything from installing catapults, to taking charge of serval unites to ready for an attack.

Response to news thread idea:
A news thread would be great, but slow down and think...
If you haven't noticed, we've gone from choose a faction, and tell a story of a grat worrier in the new Lands of Mythron group! TO....Alright, you need to be in that faction thread, or you need to check the group more often.

All I'm saying is let things roll awhile, overcomplicating things isn't going to attract members! So let the "Players" play the game a little bit...and just relax.

Fair points. Your challenge idea could be a good rogue challenge for Mythron, but I think someone mentioned that we strayed from the guidelines of a regional challenge early-on; OoL had the best idea, and I think we should go with that. I see what you mean in the second half of your comment, but it's kind of fun to add on to the game. Someone else said that players only look for challenges or post chapters of their stories, but one of my concerns was that they miss challenges if the challenge thread is buried under some other topics, so one thread to stay at the top and act as a directory would be very helpful as well as more convenient than using the homepage.

Yeah, or at least have a link to the important or current threads at the top of the homepage like:
- Current challenges (Regional, Rogue, Universal)
- Announcement thread


About the complicated issue - LCC (Lands of Classic Castle) is quite complicated and yet, many people are joining. Nothing wrong with complications. I mean, many popular Xbox games are "complicated" but because people like it, they spend a little bit of time figuring it out (i.e. reading). It's not complicated if everything is clearly written with easy access to the written things.

We have an advantage here because of the homepage being able to link to important conversation threads. LCC has threads, but no main one that directs you to the important things.

Complications aren't complicated if it takes just a little bit of time to read over.

We don't want to push anyone into joining a faction because it needs a leader. Even Simon took it as a second or third choice when we were coding faction leaders, and he likes vikings. There really isn't much for pirates to do when most of the action takes place on land.

For the December RC, each of us will do a part of it showing how it fits with the BL finishing up. (or so I believe)

I've come over to respect both challenges as equally useful, especially after the chaos caused by the latest UCs. Didn't someone have an idea about a seasonal RC where the main requirement is to show how the weather in the LOM is getting colder in November? I like that one, even though I don't have any white pieces.
