Hey frens, some of us have been contemplating the idea of an Aavegotchi Text-Based RPG, where interested community members come up with some aavesome stories that expand on the lore of the Gotchiverse and make things even more fun! We have gathered a handful of individuals who are interested and are seeking to find more members before formalizing it into a guild.
In every culture and community, stories and narratives are what connect people together. This is no different in the Gotchiverse. We aim to create a more immersive Gotchiverse culture through our stories.
What Do We Do
Write fun 500-1000 word stories that take place in the Gotchiverse. Fellow members could come up with their own original pieces or build on another fren’s stories. Feel free to add in images to evoke the imaginations of our readers further!
These stories could be written on Google Docs and compiled in a Discord message/Notion page with links to the stories. Good pieces could even be published on the official Aavegotchi blog! We are a community of culture, right? Right?
What Can We Ideate On
Who are the denizens in the Daark Forest? What’s there at Mount Oomf? Where does the yield in the Yield Fields come from? All these are blank canvases that we could help fill in!
Where Are We Situated
A Discord Server will be set up to host the guild.
Points To Note
@Jesse_gldnXross has mentioned that Gotchiverse lore will be rolling out soon. We will have more content to work with in our stories.
None. My rationale for starting this project is to identify interested individuals who are keen in text-based roleplay. We need to observe how sustainable this project is and dip our toes in slowly (i.e. how often do we publish? Who are the individuals who are actually publishing? Can these individuals keep up with the publishing schedule?)
If there’s enough demand for our services, we could professionalize our offerings to the wider community.
Depending on how strict we choose to be, the following are possible workflows that we can adopt:
- Writer writes their story, publish it
- Writer proposes an idea, write it, publish it
- Writer proposes an idea, write it, undergoes vetting by fellow writer frens, publish it
Subgroups in the Guild
Some of our frens have a wide imagination and often come up with interesting ideas. Others are more interested in the actual writing. We also have frens who are good at marketing and disseminating our stories far and wide.
We need each other!
Each group has different needs and offer different expertise to help the project succeed as a whole.
We need to think of what are some possible groups and how we can facilitate the processes to make them contribute at their best!
- Real-time text-based roleplaying during official guild events
- Writing competitions during key holiday seasons (e.g. Halloween)
Actionable items to be done
- Decide on a guild name (please put forward your suggestions!)
- Decide on which workflow to use
- Ideate on possible groups and how we can accommodate them
