WHERE I LISTEN (will be updated as I hear the rest)
BRB, digging out my ancient D&D books and reading all the random encounter tables.
LOVED the Synod opportunities that let them play around with wielding the power of organised religion. I’m reminded of people talking of reform within the Catholic Church and people talking about the Church having the momentum and turning circle of a supertanker sailing through treacle - it would be nice to see repercussions for doctrine changes or statements of principle, which of course are often heard louder by NPC commoners by people on the field even.
You know what I’m doing right now? I’m listening to your podcast instead of reading WoW/WoF aloud, because the WoW/WoF aren’t out yet.
Bourse opportunities YES. I have very little need to care who the hell is sitting in the bourse seats or what they think. Should that change?
Non hat opportunities - I do hear a lot of this. Feels like wearing a hat as a PC comes with an optional responsibility to make that hat fun for others.
WE BANNED THE CROWN
I’m worried the Bourse game is too much of a long game.
I think the Bourse inflation thing is beginning to become a dollar auction, which is fun, although I’m genuinely worried by the system’s lack of a national debt and interest rate and the subsequent effect on the money supply.
Sesame Street also teaches you how to spell! << >>
Plenty of muppets at Empire.
murder> What is your stance on lynching? Because we had effectively a lynching (Vashti’s Penitents) and it got treated as a murder.
Mad Max> SIGN ME UP
I WILL EVEN WEAR A WIG
Lack of preconceptions concerning future course of the plot> Interesting to hear.
Sticking to peace treaties> Provided they aren’t broken by accident by players who didn’t intend to infringe a treaty… I love the way the Empire isn’t honourable.
Where we are> Yeeesssss, but the new conquest serious people with hats are seriously eyeing up is in the three to five year plan range, unless one of our enemies seriously fucks up.
do not know if we will ever have a Throne> Iiiinteresssting.
Republic> It’s like the Holy Roman Empire with more democracy.
powers of Throne> I worry that the Throne’s power to kick over the Conclave is toothless and dumb.
Revocation> I still think revocation doesn’t have big enough teeth.
player events> There was like one a weekend all spring you know
