Hey.

 

So I want to get Errant going again. I may not be as active as I used to be, since I have such ambitious projects underway at the moment. But I hate to let this stay dead, especially now that a new year's getting properly going.

 

I'm not going to bother making a poll and such, since what I'm looking for right now is discussion and opinions. What would you guys like to see next from Errant this year? What kind of campaign(s) would you want to participate in, and what do you want from them? Give me all your thoughts.

Something super friendly to new comers.

 

I've considered joining for a long time, but have kind of hesitated because it really seemed like everyone was looking for experienced RP'ers.

 

Just my $0.02.

Pretty much reiterating what I said the last time this came up:

 

I'd go for a story/character -driven campaign. And preferably one focusing more-or-less on a single faction, so as to hopefully ensure at least some amount of party cohesion.

 

 

 

P.S.: I like your new profile pic., Wolfy. :3

Oh hey Wolfy. I didn't recognize you at first because of your new profile picture. :D

 

Here's what I'd like to see from a campaign this year:

 

  1. Finishing up Delving too Deep, even if it is just summarizing everything.
  2. A Free-roam campaign. Maybe without just one story to focus on, we could focus on character development.  :shrug:
  3. I FINALLY RUN A SUCCESSFUL ERRANT CAMPAIGN

Hm, noted. I'd love to have you aboard, Nightstalker. :D I never wanted the campaigns to seem like we were only looking for "experience." I'll try to keep that in mind when I come up with another one.

Also noted. I think that'd go well with something more welcoming to newcomers, too.

 

 

Why thank you. :D It's some Unikitty fanart. Chris Hawkfield, to be precise (and I didn't even have to commission it). Because Hawkodile is just a super cartoony Chris Redfield and that's why he is the best thing ever.

That's alright, slugger. But you should start getting used to it. Might be around for a while. ;)

 

1. Noted. I'll probably go with a summary, at this point, I'm afraid.

2. There's nothing restricting anyone from focusing on character development in a story-driven campaign, though. :/ Most of the character development I've seen has come from them, too.

3. Can't help you with that, I'm afraid. Would if I could.

 

 

Thanks for the responses, everybody. Anyone have any particular preferences as to what they'd like to see, especially if I were to start brainstorming for a faction-centric campaign?

I guess I would favor leaning away from what have sort of become the two "standard" factions (Inquisitors and Templar) in favor of something at least a little less overtly magical.

 

For Imperials: either the Venatori, or a group of knights/soldiers. I'd be willing to try the Caiden Venator campaign you've brought up in the past (though, focusing on a long-established char., it would probably be less welcoming to newcomers).

 

Something Imperial would probably be the best starting point, being a little simpler and more relatable, but if one wanted to do something else, a campaign focusing on the elven Longstriders, or maybe a group of northmen (the Brotherhood of the Bifrost Banner, perhaps) might work, too.

Yeah, on the note of a more specific setting, a group of northmen or Imperials largely from a single tribe/organization sounds good to me. I'd lean towards a group of knights/soldiers for the sake of newcomers but also making characters of that sort is oddly difficult for me. Granted, monsters in disguise are, I assume, an option in that kind of case... :v

If they are, I've got dibs on a vampire knight (since he's been sitting in the special permissions topic for the last three months). :D

Eh, I think it was unavoidable anyway. 

 

That's true, I guess.

 

Support from you guys (i.e. PEOPLE ACTUALLY SHOWING INTEREST IN ANY OF THESE) is key. ;)

 

As for my two cents for what we should actually do for a campaign are these:

 

1: We play as the villains. I kind of wanted to do this with the Weeping Mage in Chasing Shadows, but since I didn't communicate it that well and didn't rp it too well, he ended up dying like a total dumb@$$. I would love to play as either a Hidden or Umbra Coven character, or at least some sort of mage related campaign so I could bring back Bale.

 

2: Some sort of campaign where we don't really play as any major faction, just mercenaries. I need an excuse to play as these guys

I'm up for anything really. I think sticking with something simpler for now might be best, just to get things rolling again.
Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.
 
Except cancelling Firefly. Because that's just not cool.
