Imagine this scenario. It was 1st January 2016, Ryona City camapaign just started once more anew. Several players now finally begin the canon and RPing, pulling out their characters and groups for all to see... But what of the story? On the New Year in canon, many companies and group suddenly popped out and be active in engaging each other as well as the rest of the City. With varying players, characters as well as motivation and goals; it would be safe to say its not only ridiculous but it wouldn't allow for much character development and story expansion for myself and everyone involved. So with this I would like to propose a simple solution. In about one month, all the players will have an opportunity to establish their characters and story. I do not need to know everything about them personally, though that might help give me some DMing ideas. All I would want from any characters or groups who would like to be involved in Ryona City is for them to tell me how they were established, their reputation as well as relations with other players and the city itself. What are their influence on key figures and groups? Informants in the police? Having a multi-national corporation? Your own territories and areas? Being a well known philantrophist? Being a feared criminal eventhough you were framed? All this and more is possible, but all subjected to approval, but not impossible so long as it didn't have significant advantages over the other players. Ryona City is a very dynamic and interrelated world right down to factors like political discourses, price of food, and even different NPC gang dominance and interactions...all laid down in tables and charts hidden away to avoid spoilers and predictions. Those and many other factors, human and environmental would change depending on what the players chose to do. By giving me the information that I requested would allow and help for all players alike, old and new alike, to be more engaged and interwoven into the stories and the city itself. The Deadline would be 3rd of January. Please either in this thread or inform me on the chatroom if there is not enough time for that. Ryona City can start after this thread is done and the story as well as the city is tweaked to include the players' input. Not compulsory, but not doing so would start you off as a 'new' group/people who started from entirely scratch, having a completely blank slate and unknown status. No reputation nor influence of any kind.
