>.> Well without the mentors, I suggest making the world much much smaller cause as things were, the elementals were very spread out and there aren't enough characters for everyone to have people to play with, so there would be a lot of sitting around and/or solo posting for people.
That was probably the biggest "issue" (and I use that term loosely) with the last version of the game; it took a long time for characters to actually start to interact with each other (especially on the "good" side) which meant that at times the game appeared a bit disjointed and I imagine intimidating for anyone looking to join but who's character was seemingly based in one of the less populated regions.
I'd likely suggest (re)kicking-off with some sort of event... perhaps a big tournament/fair/feast/celebration in either the capital or somewhere else (the anniversary of the Queen's, blessed be her name, coronation perhaps?) which all the characters are there for (players can decide why). Have us all do some mingling posts, then have something big happen... the obvious one is the elementals all unleashing their powers (by accident or by design) although it could be an assassination attempt, a rebel scheme etc etc... and thus we all have an obvious thing to draw us together.
Yeah, I was gunna do that. I can lock the old one myself right? I don't need Purple to do it?
Feel free to use my old trailer, rough as it is, or any of the other stuff (MTG cards for example) in any new thread if you think it would help drum up interest/business.
