  • New Command: @kudos

    Hey folk,

    I'm here to let you all know that Castle Marrach now has a new @command for use by all players, @kudos.

    The @kudos command was developed to help facilitate you in giving praise to other players for good and proactive roleplay. The command works as thus;

    @kudos '<name> <reason>

    When you file an @kudos, your acknowledgement goes into a queue within our TAS system. At the end of each month, Staff will go through that queue, tally the results, and post them in the Castle Marrach forums. At this time, the sole reward for receiving @kudos is the standing ovation at the end of the month, but we're currently looking into the possibility of granting storypoints or other rewards for those who receive @kudos. Use this as your opportunity to praise and encourage fellow roleplayers for going out and being proactive and contributing to the game world.

    There are some restrictions on how this command can be used, to facilitate fair usage. A reason does need to be included when you file the @kudos in order for Staff to count it, and as of this posting, you can only use @kudos once every 72 hours (and not on yourself). We're looking at tweaking those numbers a bit to make the command more useful in situations where you want to give @kudos to multiple players for a scene, or situations where you come across more than a single good scene over a 3 day span, and so forth, so expect some changes to this command in the near future. But for now, feel free to enjoy early release of this command for what it is.

    Thanks and happy gaming!

    The destiny of the world is determined less by the battles that are lost and won than by the stories it loves and believes in.

    UPDATE: The aforementioned changes are now implemented. You can cast @kudos as frequently as you like, but can only vote for the same character once every 24 hours. Thanks to Orobas for getting this fix in quickly.

      UPDATE:

      Hey folk,

      An update has been made to @kudos. When you receive an @kudos a message will now pop up on your screen indicating such, though it won't tell you who it came from.

      The purpose of this is two fold. Firstly, to give a player a better idea of what roleplay specifically interested or impressed other players; it's hard to draw any real conclusion at the end of the month on what roleplay at what point over the last month you were being praised for. Secondly, this is intended to serve as a reminder for players who simply forget or don't think to file an @kudos, receiving an @kudos during an enjoyable scene may serve to help remind you to file an @kudos yourself.

      Thanks, and happy gaming!
