Title: NPC's

Not to complain, but I think any NPC's that have an important role in Jiyuu should be registered and listed among others so people can refer to them and what they can do. It may be kind of difficult to have to scavenge through topics every now and then to incorporate posts with an NPC.

Basically, I think NPC's should be registered as a character would be only with a slightly different application template. If it's too much of a hassle to work with, you can forget about the entire suggestion.

It's a good idea. An NPC application. But I think it's irrelevant as long as the NPC doesn't interact with anyone but your character/other NPC's.

Your thoughts on that?

Uchiha Mikyas - February 6, 2007 04:14 AM (GMT)
My thoughts are that either way, a member may want to understand more about the NPC he is reading about even if he doesn't do anything in particular with the NPC itself. So the reader will have a better understanding of the NPC if information is posted in a descriptive, separate topic.

Yeah.

The thing about doing stuff like that is that some people have a problem with metagaming. Where they'll say there character knows something that they really shouldn't. Thus some of the NPC's will not be posted to the public at any time. That and there are some you guys just can't know about. ;)

True, but hasn't that happened a lot in the past anyway? My character's mention of Mangekyu Sharingan, Kanki-Chan's reference to Hana-Ouji, those are just a few, there have probably been more.

Yeah it's happened, and it'll surely happen again. Things like the byakugan's blind spot & range, specifics of jutsu.. information is often going to be exploited.. there's nothing we can truly do about that, except to trust you guys to hold yourselves to character.

As far as posting the applications of story NPCs, I'd rather not. It sort of destroys the mystery behind the characters. And as you saw before, though the NPCs showed up rather unannounced, they were later added to the bingo book so you could all take a look.

Just work with us on this one.

Sure thing.
