It got me thinking on how important and fun conflict is to me. I love good stories and I think conflict is essential to any good story. Sadly, I feel that some aspects of the game's current structure and some behaviors of the player base mix to produce an environment that does more to discourage conflict than encourage conflict.
I am not trying to say that the current state is a failure or a result of mismanagement. I am not pointing fingers or laying blame. A game as complex as Sindome shifts over time and the way it changes is very hard to predict and as much in the hands of the players as it is in the hands of staff.
I also don't know exactly what changes will produce a more conflict rich environment. I don't think anyone KNOWS. But I think we all have reasonable some ideas and that there are many paths that could lead to more conflict.
So the idea here is to ask other players to respectfully make suggestions on how they think conflict could be more encouraged. They could be suggestions to staff regarding the structure of the game, to other players regarding character behavior or anything else.
I am very curious to hear what people think. Just keep it civil and avoid going into details regarding the game world, which I know can be hard!
I think simple things staff could easily take and use should they choose could be quite valuable. More valuable still, in my opinion, are ideas that other players can take and implement all on their own.
