I'd like to use this thread to get agreement on how the game is going to run. I would like for players to respond to a question or status within two days - some of that is unavoidable due to the vastly different time zones of the players. I'm enclosing this: [url]https://forum.atlas-games.com/t/ars-magica-pbp-pbem-best-practices-requested/1063/1]
Does anybody have any objections? I believe for this game to be successful, we need to put energy in driving the story forward.
A question: How fast do Self-Confidence Points reset? Certainly, when we start a new story players will have at least three; I don't think anybody took Low Self-Esteem. Would you expect that they come back in a year, or what?
Finally, saga speed. I'm willing to run the first story, unless anyone has objections. After that, I figure there will be, oh, two to three years of downtime/development, and the next StoryGuide will begin the next chapter. Is that acceptable, or do players want a faster/slower game?
