Practice of Sedition
In a world built upon a foundation of conflict, the past year has been notably violent. As Crux Fidelis, the Crusaders and ruling faction of Sium, suffer heavy losses from a particularly bloody Aphelion, other factions are emboldened to take action. Despite being allies, Weltschmerz's ambitious and duplicitous nature sees them taking bigger risks which threaten to break their alliance. All the while, Apocrypha continues to gain public sympathy and support while the Black Sun Cabal and Poena Damni continue to wreak havoc. As Sium races towards yet another conflict, it’s evident that a war lurks on the horizon.

Damn, Jag, back at it again with the updates. Bad and dated memes aside, this isn't so much an 'update' as it is a casual interest check. Lately we've been discussing ways to shake up the world state and create a more interesting and visceral sandbox that would undoubtedly lead to more plots and reaffirm our stance as 'Dark Fantasy'. But, with some things, shaking things up isn't something that can be done in a single 'moment' and have the ramifications take place immediately.

As such, what we're proposing is a 5 year timeskip that would fast forward Sium into a more volatile state. This would entail several things:
  • People would be allowed to massively re-app characters (if they so choose) or perform soft resets/retcons to certain bits.
  • A few light restrictions would be placed on the creation of certain races to push forward the narrative we're striving for.
  • An entire board/area would be revamped and made larger, allowing for more depth and interactions.
  • There will be more avenues for character progression and potential mini-events through overarching world plots, allowing people to take up certain roles -- regardless of whether or not they're canons.
There's a few others things we have in mind, but those ideas are still in the infancy stages. As such, before going forward, we're hoping to get some feedback first! Let us know what thoughts, suggestions or concerns you may have and we'll be happy to talk about it.

I'm assuming we can still have threads set in present time as we have threads set in the past, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue. Would there be downtime regarding baddies? Or would it just not be big enough shenanigans to warrant events? Regardless, a time skip would be a decent way to move the board forward instead of taking it one event at a time hoping things happen during the events that would drastically affect the story.

I'm very into this. would it be possible, if this is implemented, to do a brief few days of intensive plotting before there's really any pressure to post? since we would be kind of figuring out 5 years of character interaction and some of those are super important. it feels like if everybody rushes ahead and starts posting immediately things will kind of stay the same.

100 percent down with this. May use the interim to throw out a character or two, say they vanished in the period. Use it to develop my characters that I'm really attached to.

Full support.
