I do have a question, though.
This seems like a sandbox game, and a pretty big one at that, would there be a grand plot or any GM events?
So many people, I'm kinda concerned that my character will get lost in the crowd and be overlooked/ignored.
That's something that has always bothered me with big group games. It's a common concern with big group sandbox games, as far as I understand.
Do you have anything planned to deal with that problem?
Always welcome to answer any questions, thank you for bringing this up. I think it's a very important question!
As GM's we personally have a decent amount of experience with our last game. We always learn from our mistakes and do our very best to make sure that everyone is content enough with where they are. I've always been a little uncertain about Sandbox games myself, even if it has a story behind it. My concerns are often that the story will die, and each will if they aren't taken care of. Our last game as GM's was certainly a learning experience.
We often encourage others to discuss with one another on interacting, try to broaden their horizons and seek out to RP with another person that maybe they haven't RP'd with before. Create a story between the two, maybe even have them as complete strangers meeting for the first time. The reason in the beginning, why GM's have multiple characters is to also help this problem out. It's a very serious problem that has been brought to our attention before. We do not want to spotlight any character and we do not want anyone falling into the background either! We want everyone to enjoy the character they've created, the story and also never be ignored.
There are also times where we as GM's will reach out to our players and request some feedback. We always do this! We will ask for everyone's opinions on the game, how it's going, what they like and don't like, what they would like to see more of and we always look to making changes where applicable.
That being said, we will always work with you to make sure that you and your character are not overlooked. We will definitely be holding events and in which case, everyone will receive a decent notice ahead of time. Usually we give a two-three week notice on events, or we ask what everyone's opinion is on the event coming up.
I hope this answers your question though!
Also as Writer and Tux have mentioned, you will certainly be fine as long as you interact with other characters. It's often difficult sometimes to do such a thing, if someone's character is occupied already. But as GM's as well, we will always be willing to help you out no matter what, if you need it. ^^
