Personally I feel that now would be a good time to do some retconning on the Gods and lock down their beliefs/etc. So many of the Gods have had multiple incarnations that were wildly at odds with each other. Illuminas, for example, ranged between 'Shallah Lite' and "Baar 2: Baar Harder'. Baar ranged from "Burn the heretic! Suffer not the witch to live!" to allowing his priests to convert Bards through the power of mudsex.
So even if a new player goes around trying to find out about them, it's a crapshoot as to what they'd actually find. This is why I am so glad that entities just die when their volunteer goes away; at the end, some of the god-shells were weighed down with a decade and more of contradictory incarnations.
"On the battlefield I am a god. I love war. The steel, the smell, the corpses. I wish there were more. On the first day I drove the Northmen back alone at the ford. Alone! On the second I carried the bridge! Me! Yesterday I climbed the Heroes! I love war! I… I wish it wasn’t over."
Honestly, this is probably at least 90% of the reason I don't typically post on the forums - again, I don't feel like anyone has been particularly negative (constantly asking everyone to be positive is vaguely derailing in my opinion, because if we liked what was happening, we wouldn't have seen fit to make a thread about polite disagreement), everyone has admitted being VERY thankful for the work the administration does, even if we sometimes see a need to disagree with it, and I think it's more than fair to say this thread has run its course. :S Just because we didn't necessarily fawn over an event doesn't mean we hate the admin and everything they do - not by any stretch of the imagination.
Goodness!!! HAPPY APRIL FOOLS, SMILE PLEASE, HAVE FUN, PLAY GAMES, BE NERDS, LOVE EACH OTHER.
The burning question here.

@Esmyrsia I understand what you're saying, even if I disagree, because I've been trying that theme for a very long time (only over a decade) now without any success. Additionally, with the way I've been brought up, I've never been taught to falsely lead people to believe in head-patting and thumbs up when that's not how you feel. As mentioned, though, I HAVE been taught manners, so while I respect how you believe things should be done, I do feel differently on the matter. As I've mentioned before though, I do rather feel the thread has run its course and the information is out there for the admin to take and do with as they will - other than that, I don't think there's much else for it to do!
Good luck with your upcoming projects and I'm sure everyone looks forward to seeing what will come next, regardless of how individuals feel about the path there!
Jules said:Calais didn't like -some- aspects of the event (she wasn't alone). She made a thread (which I know for a fact that she very much wants to let die now), and (some) people talked about things they didn't like or felt could be improved. I feel that should be perfectly okay (and it generally is, which is why I like it here). But right now I am hearing "this is not okay, you guys are such jerks for saying you don't like some stuff". For some reason it is always the events stuff where this happens. I don't know why... but it is. I know some of the guys who do mechanics also volunteer (while working on other games), and I have yet to ever see a thread on an IRE forum going "oh my god, Garryn put his heart and soul into this new knight system and all you can say is that you want it to be -different- in some ways when we do this next time". I guess it is the expectations, maybe... events are supposed to be perfect or something, while it is fully recognized that mechanics will always have something that can be improved.
