The game Im running now is a freeform-sandbox type with only a loose plot to follow. The main plot itself I will not divulge here, but the game runs over quite literally an entire globe.
The one thing I seem to be having trouble with are global events. The only (and most obvious) one that seems to stick out in my head is a war between two of the races. I want these events to be mostly optional, and aiming at giving them something to do other than fly around as dragons, fuck each other... and fuck each other. Haha.
So, I come to you, oh fellow GM's, pleading some general, easy ideas.
The directory for the game, for your perusal and to get an idea of what I have going on is below.http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=160363.0
