There has been some discussion back and forth about playing on Discord vs. playing on the forums, and I think for the health of the game it's important that everyone is on the same page and in agreement. This is a thread for us all to discuss and work this out; here are my thoughts. I'm available a lot right now, but that could change at any time, so I want to be fair to both sides of the debate.
The advantage to discord is that things move much more quickly, but not everyone is on, so people have to come after the fact to see what happened. This can be mitigated somewhat by allowing retcons for people who weren't there, but that might not always be good enough.
If there is a time when everyone can be on discord together, it would be great to set up to play a regular discord rp session; however this may not work out.
My suggestion is that side-plots involving only certain characters, or background stories that could really be, "You find a regio with XXX inside" or "you search for a while and finally find the chest of gold", but that are fun to play out, could be on discord, because in the big picture, they are minor story points. Whereas important stuff that will change the course of the game, like an invading army of giants, will be strictly pbp unless everyone can be available on discord.
I also think that multi-threading is a good idea, especially where so much is going on. We can figure out timeline conflicts as necessary, but I think keeping to a single thread is unnecessarily slow.
For instance, right now, we could have an "Inside the Regio" thread, a "Searching for Treasure" thread, and maybe a few others for introducing companions, figuring out repairs to the covenant, etc.
