((lol if you've seen this elsewhere bear with me XD. spamming all support areas cause i know not everyone lurks on all of them.)) I need some help. Our site is on a small hiatus - everyone is busy and some are burned out (me) - so I am using my mini vacation time to consider something we always struggle with. Story line progression. A lot of the time I feel like I am stuck in a repeat video of a Scooby Doo episode where they scramble to take off. Ya know.... feet are moving exceptionally fast and no traction is being gained so they go nowhere before darting off? Only we haven't done any darting. So I need to pick brains. How to you manage story or world plot progression? And possibly in a way that might not depend on important roles that are not filled or have participated only to go inactive. Has anyone done stand-alone chapters? I am seriously considering this. If you progress your world plot through chapters I want to know ALL THE THINGS. If you have an active site doing this I wanna see it. Give me all the information because I have only briefly witnessed something like this ages ago but I wasn't a member so my actual knowledge is limited. It's just a thing that I saw one time... I know of a site that pooled important roles into a list of NPCs. I honestly really liked this... Though I am unsure of whether or not this would be a turn off - at large. I know special positions are a big attractant to new members because who doesn't want to play a king or queen or some powerful mage? But what do you think of reserving them all as NPC for staff or a dungeon master of sorts to control. I really think, if a world plot depends on important political action and response then it might be beneficial for progression ... if these roles were just npc's, not available to anyone. Thoughts? How do you keep track of events that have happened in role play that were part of the main story in some way?
