That said, I was thinking about a way to implement this ICly in more than just a, "telling at the club" kind of way.
And it hit me. Simsense.
What are people's thoughts on telling war stories ICly through simsense? Basically what I envision, is a revised game log of an event. A player with the log of their character's experience, can work with a staff member to edit it for like...emotional content and things like that (can explain in further detail), then inject ICly for view via Simsense.
Conversely, we can bypass the edits regarding enrichment of rp by adding additional emotions (like making a viewer feel things the player originally didn't rp to themselves, etc.). At the very least, though, we can get submit them to staff after editing out echoes for commands like "look me" "glance me" "@stats" and the like. Distill it down into a purely rp experience without the kind of OOCish commands that can ruin that for a Simsense experience.
