Knowledge Per Race & City (WIP)

I was thinking all-inclusive, Malt to be honest. I mean, it does no harm and seems to make sense. You happy with that?

And thank you, yes, it is a booooootifully laid out chart, isn't it? :D :lol: :lol:

That is all fine by me.

BUT....
(you knew there'd be one, didn't you. :lol: )

If this seems a needless complication, It's nothing I have my heart set on.

But perhaps awarding 10 will be contingent upon the CS history indicating that, at character launch, they had been in their starting city for some time already.

I know that many start their PC in a city, but also indicate that they are just arriving there. Maybe they should only get 5.

I think, rather than going down the "if you've been there X time you get X but..." route, they get 10. BUT (always!) it has to make sense with the CS history. If they've just arrived in Scalv and have lived their life in Etzos, they should have Etzos knowledge.

So, I think keep it as "it has to make sense" and we're golden?

I'm fine with 10.

I'm also fine with the chart you provided. :)

You could just add another line at the top of the chart to say that it's a suggestion of possible non-skill knowledges, and that they're free to select from the list that's proposed based on where they are with their PC and their background, but that they're free to make up more specific or localized lores from locations and historical events if it suits them so long as they are listed as background knowledges and can be checked for validity when the CS goes up for review.

That way, we have a very helpful list of suggestions for new players and a pool of optional knowledge slots for them, if they need them, and they are free to customize it if they have more specific ideas for knowledges they want to pick up using that pool (so long as they are relevant to the PC's background and not related to skill knowledges).

Maybe add a suggestion that the 10 background knowledges should be specifically tagged as such, much like how we tag knowledges from certain starting packages so we know where they came from? Like [HI] (history) or [BK] (background knowledge) or similar, like how we have [SB] for "slave bonus", etc? That way they'll be a lot easier to review fairly when we review the CSs.

Also I'm assuming this'll be for new PCs only once it rolls out?

Or will we give a grace period for old PCs to pick up a few knowledges using these guidelines if they PSF it, if there's really anything they feel they're missing out on? I don't think we can totally backdate the change so people can go back and spend their starting knowledges differently (since a lot of folks spent them on non-skill knowledges already). I don't really want people to feel like they got snubbed, but at the same time, these are all optional and non-skill, meaning they don't really provide any extra benefit in the game whatsoever since it's all background stuff anyway.

So should we simply grandfather people into this, or do we feel we need to give a consolation prize of sorts to PCs who were recently approved or even further back than that?

Hm. I tend to think that it's just for new pc's, but if anyone has a recently made pc and really wants to, they can psf a request?

If we're there, I'll stick a poll up on this once I've amended the proposal with all of this stuff in it :)
