    For a little while I was having monthly meetings for all regiment Captains on the first Saturday of every month. I say we continue this! Its good to have all the captains on board, in game, at once place.

    I am thinking this should be an IC meeting; it would minimize drama. But some things (event planning, etc.) may need to be OOC. So I was thinking we can deal with the OOC stuff here on the forums and have the meetings be completely IN CHARACTER.

    If folks cannot be civilized, then I will ask for assistance with it from "Team Gods".

    Optimally, we would be able to have the EMs 'run' it. This would keep it civil and fair.

    Alternatively, we should rotate, with a different captain running the show each month.

    Thank you Oriana for posting positive feedback and good ideas; always welcomed. To address your great points...

    I think a Captain's meeting should be all captains because if its to be an "in character" meeting, that's how it should be presented. Also imagine that for whatever reason the theme grows (hoping so) and we end up having 200+ ppl in the theme --- it would be assanine to have all of those meet up in a small room in the castle. I think the last time we had a meeting (where we brought up the factions issue) actually went very well! Don't you? You were there. I came out of that meeting feeling good and purposeful --- you and I were supposed to talk to PGoH to establish diplomacy, Cyric was supposed to plan something in Haven, I had the Gala up and coming... I thought we did good. Having smaller groups gives every regiment representation and also makes it more productive as every captain gets a turn to speak, etc. etc. and if a Captain cannot attend they can appoint someone to step in.

    In regards to this forum, I have (if you have seen the stickies) always included all regiments (regardless of guild tag) in ALL I do. The reason this forum exists is most people use Stratics, Messana uses Stratics, EM's use Stratics, and well... UO as a whole uses Stratics. Its the most accessible. Every single regiment is welcomed here, there are no private forums here and everything will be out in the open for everyone to participate in.

    I will make this clear, from today onward these forums will be drama free. No posting "starting fights" with anyone (including myself or any other theme member) will be allowed. We will not allow anyone to be baited into "tit for tat" arguements here; those posts will be locked. They may not always be deleted but they will be at least locked to prevent drama from escalating. The IC forum will contain ONLY IC threads, if someone posts out of character stuff there, we will move it to the OOC forum.

    All I ask for is cooperation... like you posted today... and feedback, ideas, and support. Fair enough?


    - Pandy

    You haven't been to many EM events, have you, my friend?

    And first Saturday of every month?

    ... busy!

    But then again, I'll never be a guard.

    I usually follow up the market with intense roleplaying, typically in Olympus. They have a lovely tavern!

    Far, it would be in the early afternoon. Your market is at 8 pm? No?

    That's a great idea Oriana, but maybe we could move it to every quarter then? I think for just 2 people (Kas and Barn) all this would be a lot to do; plus all the other rp themes out there --- I know personally that my event for CoD is a big planning thing and its taking a lot of their time. Then PGoH is also doing things and Va'lis too, it may be too much to have the meetings "monthly".

    Thoughts?

    Keep in mind those who chose not to be in a "regement" but still desire to roleplay a guard are welcome.
    Anyone new to the shard is most welcome to join an existing city, apply for one that isn't being "defended" or just participate casually as (what I call) a universal "guard".

    Let's try to make everyone's playstyle comfortable. (As long as we stay in character, of course)


    [Edit]: That being said I disagree (strongly) with meetings that are "just for" certain people and EMs

    I'm going to discuss this with Barnaby and Mesanna and come to a conclusion. Also your input will help us come to this conclusion, so continue to discuss. I'm not sure how keen I am on a "captain's only" meeting. First - unless Mesanna builds a meeting hall, this is unenforceable, and either way I wouldn't feel comfortable enforcing it. Second - it is only open to a portion of the Royal Guard, therefore not everyone who wants to have a voice, will, hence my discomfort.

    I don't understand, this was something Pandy was already doing in-game on her own.

    Does this mean that if we do anything with our own role playing theme, that the game developers can just come and take that too?

    Are you reffering to me? I'm not sure what you are talking about.

    I thought there were posts requesting an EM to come to a Captain's RP meeting.
    It is here in the EM forum. If not then I was mistaken. Trust me, I have more than enough to do I don't want to take over anything :).

    I like the idea of keeping all RBG style meetings open to all who wish to attend. It should be clear to us all that our EM's are looking towards inclusion, and frankly, RP needs to be all inclusive to survive.

    The tag any of us wear or do not wear should not be of consideration in who does and does not attend the meetings. It is far easier to get the information first hand, and it is better to have 50 ideas from concerned players then a hand full.

    Kas, some context... these posts were originally in a forum I had asked for prior for the RBG theme, not here in the EM forums. They were moved here as we were told we cant have separate RBG forums for the theme, only individual guilds. Our goal had been to concise the posts about the theme into one forum that most UO'ers have access to. To Suse's defense, she's very new to these forums and did not understand it had been moved here.

    Sorry for the confusion, I would have rather had the posts completely deleted as we know how to contact you through your site.

    I think the person we actually need to contact is Mesanna, as Kasaven has done everything in his power and still the whole RBG theme is being ruined (Not by Kasaven) and people are quitting.
