One of the main questions recently voiced during a council meeting is the over-arching "tone" of individual crafts. The GC believes, as a whole, that defining these "tones" would be conducive to furthering symmetry across the game regarding the major crafts. So, without further comment, the crafts in question:
So, what do we need from YOU? Well, first off, all active crafters are encouraged - even solicited! - to please reply to this LJ entry via comment with their input on how they have roleplayed the main Hall as being.
Questions that we're really looking to address are:
Overall internal political tone. Conservative? Do they not like women to be crafters? Do they not EVER allow exceptions to the age limits? Do they expect a very high level of traditional values? Conversely, are they liberal? Do they encourage women to work for Mastery? What about riders - do they like them, or do they scoff at them? How do they feel about weyrs? Is posting a person to the weyr the equivalent of political exile, or is it just another posting to further one's position?
All of these factors add up for the general "tone". Eventually, once we have an accord for each craft, we'll compile that said accord into one "blurb" - a sentence or two, a Mission Statement of sorts! - and post it in the appropriate news files.
So, if you're a crafter, please, please please! share what you have played, at this junction!
Z'yi, on behalf of Council
