If you have, what are you going off of? :O
You are only getting an NPC letter once a month. How many y’all pass to each other is totally up to you.
This was one of the reasons I wanted to establish a "where did we see each other last" drawing room party. Feel free to appropriate my party as letter fodder. I might pre-newsletter write a couple people I know IRL and send to their address just to get into the flow, but I'm waiting for the newsletter to write anything "real" that goes through the GMs. Also, I'm concerned about continuity and sequence. Like, I don't want to write a letter to X and have them receive it at the same time I receive an unrelated letter from them. Then we're creating 2 letter threads and I just think letter writing should be more of a zipper effect. In fact, I wouldn't be against pre-planning who's sending me first round and who wants to get first round from me so that we're switching off rounds. (Are we only getting mail once a month from the GMs @Athena Peters @Athena Peters?)
but... if have to zipper it, that means we have to pre-arrange everything online in advance. once play begins, this is really supposed to just be epistolary, right? so, if we both send each other a letter, that's a point where we have a double chain. or, maybe the chains can be merged together.
I see what you're saying, but I also feel like it's a Sisyphean endeavor to try and ensure that everything is neatly one chain per pairing, and I feel, personally, that I want to see what the newsletter holds.
Maybe if you do find that you and a new friend wrote to one another, discuss with them how you want to handle it. Discuss the irony of the situation in your letter and suggest that the letters just be combined. Or endure that you have two different conversations going at once.
Totally waiting for newsletter as official game on for me :)
Oh cool. I'm just having trouble starting without you know, things to write long letters on.
@(Rachel) Hazel Wynnewood — so, we totally are having this conversation right now, so like, this is less for you and more for everyone else?
while yes, the majority of our letters should likely wait until we get the newsletter, you might have an urge to get a letter off your chest.
if so, I think one way to do it is piece together what you know about someone’s backstory from here, on the forums, with your own. like, my characte, James, loves throwing house parties, hunts, and balls. so, I wrote one to someone about co-hosting an event.
but we won’t have to wait much longer, I don’t think.
@ Duke James Richmond (Greg) exactly. There were questions to Abraham if he knew Nigel and Edmund so I am saying “yes he dId!” And then an writing letters based on that relationship.
Yes I have. I’m going off backstory - what happened with Abraham, Nigel and Edmund at the Battle of Trafalgar.
