Newberry Glen's Staff

Postby The Mists » Wed Jan 17, 2018 8:05 am

Staff Duties
Newberry Glen has three tiers of staff:

Head Storyteller
Ultimately responsible for all things. Establishes overarching plot, final approval on all PCs/renown/downtime, plays primary NPCs and totem spirits, final say on all calls of mechanics and genre. Access to all forums and plot. May have one PC, provided they do not participate in scenes the HST runs.(The Mists)

Storytellers
Assistance to HST. Necessary bookkeeping and updates (renown/census/XP/Want Ads), support on overarching plot, personal plot/monster of the week scenes, auxiliary NPCs and spirits, authority to approve characters/renown/downtime. Access to all forums and plot. May have two PCs, provided they do not participate in scenes the ST runs.
(The Medusae, Kirijama, HMM Dark Fungus)

Totems
Personalized narrators. Run plots based off of PC Want Ads, focusing mainly on personal plots and monster of the week scenes. Can run spirits/NPCs with ST approval for narrative consistency. No access to character/pack forums or knowledge of overarching plot.
(Raccoon, Snow Queen, Black Unicorn, Opossum, Fox)


Getting the Most From Your Staff

- A Q&A thread in your forum (as opposed to PMs) helps the staff stay on the same page.
- Post links to scenes that need staff attention in Staff Scenes to make things easier to track.
- Any questions that could benefit the game on the whole should be asked in Player Questions. An ST has authority over a Totem, but the HST has final say.
- Create Want Ads to help get the story you want. If it's something other players can do, post it in the Want Ads forum. If it's your personal plot, put it in your forum, and a Totem/ST will reach out to you.
- Remember that we're all volunteers. Be patient with us, and be nice.
- GIVE COMPLIMENTS FREQUENTLY in the Staff Love thread of Shout Outs. It fuels us.
- Communicate openly, honestly and often. We can't fix what we don't know is broken.
