re: The P-Word (kind of long)
Good day to the assembled company!
After a bit of reflection on the proposal and response, I figured -
what the hell, jump right in!
I have just a couple of points -
As far as I know I am the only resident of Lochmere roaming the net -
but that may have changed. Most of our computer types work for an
organization with a decidedly one-way view of communication, but who
knows what they're doing at home!
I would say - don't leave Lochmere out of your theories, or proposals.
The feeling and position of Lochmere at the end of the last round was
- "We are not interested at this time." That was our response to
reasons being presented, but it doesn't mean the group won't
reconsider it's position. Besides, how would we ever develop a new
opinion if we are left out of any theories or musings.
So far it looks like a dive has been taken straight into mechanics.
How to break up the Kingdom. I'm personally still waiting for why.
So here is what I would like to see from Leifer and anyone else who
would like - 1 to 5 personal reasons for or against. Not group
reasons, not rhetorical reasons - personal reasons. Why do you think
it would or would not make the game more fun.
In the interest of fairness, I'll start.
I don't think we need a principality because:
1. It causes hard feelings between people, particularly when people
think it's a plot to keep north and south separate.
2. We see the royalty fairly frequently in my group and it's harder
to plan around them (time for court, delaying meals ...) Another
set means we'll probably see them even more.
3. We have a large number of Baronies. More hats would take
away some of the Baron's and Baroness' flash and importance.
(For instance I got to use my own Baronial Throne only once as
Baroness - all other times I was outranked!)
4. It encourages people to play within a smaller area by placing more
events in direct competition with each other.(This one is pretty
easily debated - people play where they want to play. But when I
was just starting out I sampled places and events all over. If
there had been a principality it would definitely have influenced
my attendance. I like many choose my group's events first,
Kingdom events next, what ever looks interesting in the kingdom
next, whatever looks interesting anywhere after that.)
5. I hate change I don't think it's broken, so why are we fixing it?
These are my reasons. I would like to see others reasons. I do not
want to see my reasons debated, they are mine. What are yours.
