First, I wanted to echo what Kelssek said about not being a super big fan of public rp bonus. I don't really mind if hosts want to do it, but it does seem to me like a recipe for drama. Because of that, it's not something I'd be comfortable doing as host, and because of that I wouldn't want it to b...

Krytenia-Legalese: I liked the approach to RP bonus so it wasn't strictly cumulative, as well as the willingness to adjust it based on some of the possible backfire issues that were mentioned in thread. Krytenia-Delaclava: I think the main "radical" idea here was the non-roster penalty, wh...

If by mini-chains you mean issues that are direct consequences of other issues without being part of a big chain, there are almost 50 of them now--because the issue base is larger we have more freedom to play around with niche validities and interactions like that. A few of them (361 and 362) were d...

I had to look this one up too, but Eugene Houseman is a reference to Georges-Eugène Haussmann of the Napoleon III era, it's not random. A quick sample of the issue base shows other fixed names such as Kerri Cracking (Mary Poppins), Jacob John Schmidt Jingleheimer (for a "that's my name too"...

The Kerlagrad Courier The government of Zwangzug is known for its zealous--some might say overzealous--environmentalist restrictions as they attempt to preserve native species of zebras, morning glories, loons, corvidae, temperate rainforests, and so on. However, in one area they are sorely lacking...

So how exactly influential is Margaret these days, compared to in the past? I have a sense that her influence has declined and that we need not fear her so much.

Why can't hosts just increase the RP bonus scale so that RPing unranked nations have a chance of beating a rank coasting top ranked nation? I guess I agree with this when it comes to the two Silver Beach formulas, is one literally just the other divided by two? I feel like hosts should be able to s...
