New Dungeon Masters

by DM_Jen - Thu Sep 19, 2019 10:36 am - 0 Comments

Hello all! I'd like to give a warm welcome to three new dungeon masters that have started up with the team recently. They will be starting as apprentice dungeon masters and through some hard work, and a little bit of time, eventually they'll be bumped up to full dungeon masters.

  1. DM Ven
  2. DM_Fubar
  3. DM_Felicity

When you see them online, please give them a warm Haven welcome. As a friendly reminder, do be a little patient with them as they're learning so many things that happen behind the scenes all while helping you lovely folks!

DM Rules & Application Modification

by DM_Jen - Tue Jul 23, 2019 2:20 pm - 0 Comments

The staff has decided to modify the following from the dungeon master rules and application requirements:

DMs will not attain leadership positions on a personal PC after joining the team. DMs who occupy a leadership position and do not maintain a similar level of activity may be suggested to find an alternative to being in that position.


and;

If you have a position of power (owner of a guild, head of a tavern, part of a government) you will most likely have to turn over that role/position to another to avoid the loss of time leading one of these roles compared to spending it being a DM and the inherent potential of favoritism - are you ok with this requirement?


This will allow those in IC leadership positions to apply to become dungeon masters.If there are any questions or concerns, please let us know.

Summer Design Contest: Kortuga Slavers Guild!

by DM_Yxunomei - Mon Jun 03, 2019 9:50 pm - 0 Comments

Yep, it's time for another area design contest! The Kortuga slave pens are getting a bit old, so it's about time to spruce them up with something new! This is a contest to create and furnish and interior area to be used as the headquarters of the Kortuga Slavers Guild; it will also act as the default start area for Guild Slave characters.

So what are the parameters?
Required sections:

  • A public foyer
  • Offices for the Warden and Hounds
  • A slave pen area; this should be a bit seedy, but should include sleeping and bathing
  • A punishment area with cages and KEMO devices; if you're not comfortable with that aspect, the devices could be added after a winner is chosen
  • A nicer communal sleeping area for favored slaves
  • Please keep overall spacing in mind; nobody wants to have to walk for 15 minutes to get from the front door to the bathroom!
Note: remember that this is for guild slaves, so it definitely shouldn't be overly fancy!

Prizes:
  • The winning submission will receive 750,000 gold and will get to help design a plushie of their own character or their favorite NPC who doesn't already have one (and they'll get that plushie too!)
  • Assuming we receive 3 or more submissions, an additional prize will be given for second place.
  • Everyone submitting a valid entry for this contest (please no "here's five unfurnished rooms") will receive a (smaller) magical prize!

Timeframe:
  • I'd like to put the submissions anonymously up for voting in early July.

If you're interested in taking part in this contest, please contact me via PM so I know you're planning to take part. I'm also willing to share some necessary resources with those planning on creating submissions.
