Two announcements, one directed at future GMs but both concerning the Murder Game lore! Considering the lengthy schedule we've amassed and the influx of ideas, we're going to have to put limits on who can GM. Your idea can be accepted if you're willing someone else to GM it, but to be eligible for GMing, you must have been active in two murder games (Tales or Games count), and helped co-GM at least one. First of all, there has been some thinking on the future of the Murder Series and the council have come to the conclusion that we would like to encourage more experimenting with the Murder Game formula. It is for this reason that we would like to tell all future GMs that they should not feel obligated to use the traitor system. In fact, they don't necessarily have to use traitors, roles, or a vote at all. The only requirement we feel is necessary is that characters are periodically dying throughout the event. Obviously, using the same round/chapter structure is a given as well. This makes 'Murder Games' an umbrella term and not about a specific kind of game. Examples of how one could go about this will be provided in the MG Ideas thread and everyone is free to give input on this. If one feels uncomfortable with sharing their ideas publicly, feel free to discuss this in our Murder Game Order PM. In terms of the story, if you do use the same system as the past, make sure there is a clear in-story reason why it's being used, as this was a system created IC by the Arch Demon character. --- Second, I know some people find the MG Lore a bit confusing. The wiki has helped, but obviously it is by no means perfect. There's been attempts to keep it in check and in order, but some things get away from us. For this reason, we'd like to tell all players that anything being created behind the scenes that affects the lore largely MUST get approval from Verite and I. This mainly includes creating large multiversal organizations, creating major locations that many characters would visit, and creating large networks of character relationships across the multiverse. Even if you do get approval, it would be very helpful if one could make a page on the wiki if they do create something like this. It is very hard for us to keep track of these things if we're not really informed on them. Pro tip, I would imagine it would make us feel better about approving something if you provide a pre-planned wiki page in advance!
