Is there interest in more standard missions?
« on: May 20, 2017, 10:49:46 PM »
Like, would anyone be interested in threads where the end condition isn't saving the world? I've been thinking of doing some more down to earth normal mission threads, like search and destroy or village defense, that focus more on character development and less on the biggest bad they can beat.

Got a bunch of those tied to the events in the Vacuo storyline. Just waiting on worldbuild. Same idea, search and destroy, escort, perimeter defense, but with consequences that ripple later. A connected ecosystem.

Not even necessarily part of something down the line. Just a place for people to get some dedicated character development.

I think that format can work better for a site like this, I would argue that the emphasis here is on character development.

I am 100% up for this. Smaller-scale missions given as class assignments seems very much in keeping with Beacon's teaching approach, to say the very least.
