    I need volunteers!

    Helpers: I know some of you have self designated yourselves as helpers and I and the devs are truly appreciative of that. What I would like to do is expand your role as Helper during the time of Kickstart.

    • Gather folk and do dungeon runs, all the while teaching about the dungeon and the monsters, as well as their skills of choice if you are familiar with them.

    • Talk up any events that are coming up, and there will be more than usual during this time period.

    • Be available to brand new player, BUT please do not overwelm them. It is sometimes hard to know how involved to get with folks still in the beginner cave. The curse and the wall can be challenging. But some players like to explore and discover on their own. Let them know you are there if they have questions or are having trouble getting gear they need.

    • Since we do not have a way to store things to give away, lets decide on a couple designated areas to leave gear that is free to anyone. Right now it seems the fountain area in Serbule is being used for that purpose. Another area that might be nice for basic gear is the mushroom area in front of the beginner dungeon.

    Live Event Participants: I need folks willing to help me run events as well as share ideas for live events.

    • Be willing to make a character to take part in RP events.

    • Save extremely valuable gear for promotional prizes.

    • Be willing to help out in organizing and manning any number of non-RP events.

    Writers: I need folks to write...like yesterday!

    • Instructional posts in the forums.

    • Wiki (many people do not want to talk to helpful people in game but would find the answers to their questions in a wiki)

    • Maps, cause....how long did it take -you- to remember where Tadion is?

    • Charts for crafting and other skills. For example: a list of things you can cook, the ingredients and what the food does when eaten.

    I have to add a couple things!

    Hosts: I will need people who are knowledgable enough to host Q & A sessions.

    Twitch Streamers: I will need people who can do live streams, with chat and talk. These streams will be channeled though Stratics so ya can't be shy!

    YouTubers: I need some videos we can put in the Stratics library for viewing.

    Social Media Users: When a video or article is posted, share it! Tell your friends and have them tell their friends. Word of mouth is the best advertisement!!

    When is the kickstarter? I would love to help provided I am available. Shouldn't be a problem as my job search is over :)

    I just downloaded (and am currently test streaming) OBS. I have no mic or camera atm, but possibly could get these in time for the event (cash is tight atm)

    I'll make sure I record any streams and they can be uploaded to youtube. I have my own twitch and youtube that can be used.

    Ideas for streaming kickstarter:
    -Run dungeons with group
    -Show off different animal forms and combat combos
    -Play around with Words of Power, speed items, jump potions etc
    -PVP (duels, ffa, king of the hill etc)

    any other ideas or feedback?

    This has Rojjin written all over it... haha

    > Wiki (many people do not want to talk to helpful people in game but would find the answers to their questions in a wiki)

    I'll start adding to the wiki again ASAP!

    These are these I'm happy to keep doing :D

    I actually had a really great time recently doing a dungeon run with two newbies; I switched to the role of healer using mentalism and psychology, and got to level mentalism whilst they got to explore and experience the dungeon in a way they otherwise wouldn't have, but without me just blitzing everything.

    We were talking about PvP stuff yesterday; if we got enough people, we could have team battles by grouping into two groups. And actually, PvP grouping could become the basis for establishing guilds, since it would provide incentive to organise as a group. Also, MOAR PET BATTLES!

    heh.. I'm missing a few of the newer recipes.. and i don't know if i could even get them all formulated before the Ks starts.

    easier to just have Eric email you them and you tabulate them on the wiki.

    *steals seas from Auriel* I need a player streamer for promotions! If there is a live event next week or you want to do a dungeon run or something, I am in need of a player run stream this coming week. This will stream over Stratics to promote Kickstarter (July 31), so will need full support, moderation and talk. Auriel will be about to help with this, as well as Eric, possibly Aaron and the Stratics staff. We have a bit of a twitch guru here if needed for set up, and Eric is putting together an official PG twitch channel as well.

    You up for this? *grins*

    I don't know if I'm late to the party or not, but I'd love to help fill out the wiki with maps, guides for quests, NPC locations/inventories and the like if nobody has already taken up the responsibility.

    Grem has stated interest I believe, but undoubtedly it is more than a 1 person job!

    Yeah I've been a bit slack since I was too busy irl to help out for 1-2 weeks, but the wikia needs every contribution it can get. There's lots of huge gaps, but the more people working on adding and editing articles the faster it'll get done and the more useful the wikia will be!

    Just remember to follow the correct page format when adding new articles. What I do is find a similar article, then go into edit and copy the whole thing, then edit it to make it into an entirely new article. Easiest way, I think.

    I'm not sure where/who they came from, but there are templates for NPC, quest, item, and enemy pages.

    I have been doing some contributions to the wiki in the enemy section and eventually i would like to do the same in the item section.
    For a new wiki editor like me the templates have been pretty useful.

    to other wiki editors (I've been on break from it since. RL crap) don't link to antiquated pages.. there is no longer a "forest zone" it is simply Serbule.. the town itself can be considered Serbule proper if need be. I just cant delete stuff so "forest" zone is a redirect to serb...
