Between Event Action System

 

In order to help the Plot Team manage their duties as well as the rest of their responsibilities (both for and outside the game), Fantasy Alive is instituting a system for requesting in-between game interactions. This is designed to better define the responsibilities of a Plot Member as well as assist them in balancing the requests from Players.

Below is the system we will require all Players to follow when sending in an email to plot.fa@gmail.com.

  • You may email each Plot Member one time per active character to cover any between-event actions. This email may contain multiple actions.
  • If you are unsure which Plot Member to email, please send a email with this format:
    • Subject: Plot Contact Request
      Body: Please respond with the name of the Plot Member who I should send the email to for this thing I want to do: <Single sentence quickly describing plot/mod>
  • All submitted emails must follow the template / examples below for each action
  • Each character can have up to 1 between event actions per week which passes between events.
  • Plot will respond once per email received. Rolling dialogues or actions should be addressed at events.
  • Please be specific with your request, your information and the response you’re looking for from Plot.
  • Emails received at least 12 days before the event will be guaranteed a response before the event.
  • Emails received between 12 and 5 days before the event MIGHT be responded to, but will at least be considered for any IG actions at the event.
  • Emails received after 5 days before the event will not be responded to and will most likely not result in any IG consideration at the event.
  • Players may request between game RP with Plot members, but Plot members may decline at their discretion.
