Totems & COI

Postby The Mists » Wed Nov 08, 2017 7:23 pm

So for those who have not read it, we have a WHOLE THING for Collaborative Storytelling (i.e., Narrators), where people can run up to run smaller plot stuffs for other people.

Subject: Collaborative Storytelling

Now, PRESENTLY, this is what Totems can and can't do
The Mists wrote:What Totems Can Do:
- register an account named after a spirit/totem for narrator purposes
- run personal plots (with permission/upon request) not related to their characters/pack
- run monsters of the week for other packs
- run human NPCs
- run spirits (jagglings and below), fomori and minor antagonists
- run a pack's totem (upon request/not your pack)
- develop part of the surrounding area to run with the ST and handle all scenes in the region
- roll combat/frenzy that doesn't involve you or your pack

What Totems Can't Do:
- ANYTHING that directly impacts you or your pack/motley
- supernaturals without consulting staff
- access character forums/sheets


This is because there has been a lot of accusations of favoritism in games previously, and I just flat out didn't want to deal with it. But right now, our Totems are some of our most active players, and I want to encourage more people to step up too, so I want to know if the favoritism/Conflict of Interest thing is something to be concerned about. I trust you guys, and as best I can tell, y'all trust each other.

So the bit question: Are you alright with Totems being able to run plots/scenes for PCs tied to their character, as long as the Totem's PC is not involved?

The EXCEPTION is PvP, which will always be run by a Storyteller, or between consenting players. And obviously, all Totems will need to give equal attention to all of their scenes and requests.

- develop part of the surrounding area to run with the ST and handle all scenes in the region
- roll combat/frenzy (outside of PvP)

What Totems Can't Do:
- ANYTHING that directly impacts/involves the totem's PC
- supernaturals without consulting staff
- access character forums/sheets

I'll leave this up until Saturday and go with the final vote, since less then half of the game has voted thus far.

Totems are now permitted to run plot for PCs tied to their characters.

If you have concerns about a CoI in any scene, please do not hesitate to bring it to me.

The rules on Collaborative Storytelling have been updated.
