We are experimenting with a new way of encouraging plot formation and discussion. The Group Forum has been set up to allow players to discuss ideas and various plots in order to brainstorm for individual plot threads. The way this functions is: should you create a group or have a character belong to a group where you would like to have several threads that are interconnected, you will have a central location to discuss this in without needing to resort to pms or chat. This will also hopefully allow new players to find characters to write with should they wish to create a character with pre-existing relationships or loyalties.
Any time you wish to create a multi-thread plot or have a location to brainstorm a certain group with, this is the forum you'll go to. Once you're ready to create an individual thread, you should create a separate plot thread in the plot forum as usual.
Here's something you can use as a general templateto use for groups. If you are going to have a lot of links you'll need to split the post into several; you can only have around 20-ish links in one post.
