Starting from the 2nd of January, we shall be starting a small initiative in young players to try to get you all more involved with the plot of the day.

Simply put, we, as referees, shall have access to a pot of grulls which we will be rewarding for reports written about what occured on dungeon. Depending on how good the report is, we are able to award up to 5000 grulls. However, there is a twist! None of the referee team will be judging your reports, we shall be handing them to a member of the community and asking them to interpret the dungeon based on your report. If they can, brilliant! If they cant, not so much... Remember, because of this it is important you use proper punctuation and spelling to ensure your report is high quality.

Submissions will have a small in character thread where you can post up reports of your daily exploits, an example of which will be linked HERE once its written and either every month or every two months, we will have a post announcing who has earned what from which reports they have written.

We hope this will encourage you to engage with the plot more on the day and try to hang onto it for a bit longer as you've got to get home before you can type it up. So keep notes, investigate things and write lots of reports.

I like this role play.

To confirm though, we have had a lot of chat amongst the refs, and as nobody struck a blow or intended any harm, nobody is at risk of being outlawed or killed. There will also not be a massive fine like the Ishma situation that was mentioned. I think we're more or less decided on what will happen next and I don't think you will find it horrendous.

For those who are bothered, IC, are the reports for 'public' viewing? I apologise for not being able to come sown recently but I have had coursework and multiple internal exams :-(. Sorry for the slightly off topic bit.

Will there be a feedback form on reports that have been written as to tell us how to do better?

Thanks

Reports are publicly viewable from an IC persepctive. Brass Company are paying for them so other mercenaries can read and learn from them.

There will be feedback on reports, Ill be doing it on the 1st of each month (or as closely as I can).

This attitude is not helpful. If you don't want to write one don't, but keep opinions and views like these to yourself. It's not big or clever.

Dan, if you're only there for one section, then feel free to write a report of what happened for just that section. You might only get half of the grulls you might otherwise have received, but if yours is the only report then the pot will be split between fewer characters and we might be able to be more generous! As long as you explain IC that you missed the first part of the day and caught up with them about lunch time it's all good.

If two players wanted to get together and write a report between them so as to cover the full day, that would work equally well.
