Rules opening

Post by Brian » Mon Jan 15, 2018 12:59 pm

The rules team continues to try to make the game a better place to play. A member of our team is intending to step down in the near future, and we're looking to bring another member to the team to continue to make the system cleaner, help find solutions and identify issues, as well as be involved in shaping the direction of the tools and mechanics that we use to interact with the world.

What We're Looking For
  • Mechanically minded.
  • Looking to have an impact on the game's systemic direction (not the same as the story)
  • Able to leave your own character at the door in rules discussions and see the game from a much wider perspective.
  • Some understanding of the current balancing mechanisms in place between each of the supernatural/mortal games.
  • A desire to help make the game both accessible and at the same time retain the characteristics that make the source material unique.
  • The desire to make Dark Prospects better for everyone.
  • Lots of ideas!
If you're interested, please send a PM to the Rules Team (Staff). Include:
  • Who are you?
  • What experience do you have with rules work (if any. I built the current system without much foreknowledge of LARP rules)?
  • Why are you interested in working on the rules?
  • Do you have experience with any of our primary tools? (php, phpbb, mediawiki, excel/libreoffice calc/google sheets, google docs, etc. I don't expect anyone to know all of the tools inside and out!)
  • Provide an example of a systemic or mechanical improvement you would like to see implemented.
  • Is there anything else we should know?
If you have already submitted a rules team application in the past, please let us know if you would still like to join the team. Feel free to include an updated version of the list above if you would like, but you can also just let us know you'd like to use the original.
