A good scene will serve the purpose of driving the story of the characters involved forward. You should try to make this inclusive and bring several people into the story with you. The best stories are the ones that are shared. You can request a scene for your individual character, but please only request just one or two npcs if this is the case due to the limited resources we have to provide a scene just for one character.
You will be responsible for providing all the props for these scenes, but you can drop them off with plot if you would like the props to be in the hands of the NPCs for the scene.
Scenes are used for role play purposes or combat challenges. They are not for the purpose of allowing your character to get special items that are super powerful or rare, and should not be used for the purpose of making your character more "powerful". Instead, scenes should tie into your character's story and provide an avenue for story advancement. A scene request should be thought out and not a random request for plot. For example:
A bad scene request - I'd like a scene where my character finds out about some secrets. (This has no thought put into it, and is just a request for some random personal plot) OR I would like to have my character meet with a drow, kill them, and then be given the sword of might which allows my character then to kill any drow with ease in the future. (This is asking for your character to defeat one of the most powerful enemies in the game and give your character something unique and special with no wiggle room for what the real outcome might be).
A good scene request - I would like my character to have the opportunity to meet with allies of the drow to negotiate some kind of alliance to stop the fighting. I will be bringing 5 other people with me on this diplomatic mission. (This is open ended, ties into the story at hand, and is inclusive).
Please leave the results of your scene open ended rather than pre-determining what will happen. Examples include: I would like to have a scenario set up for my military guild to do a trial mission where they hunt down a group of bandits that have stolen cabbages from a group of local farmers. I will provide the cabbages. Or, I've been hunting for my lost brother and would like to set up a scene where we get some reports on his possible location and then go and seek out if he's alive or dead or still missing.
Please note, scene requests are only for scenes involving npcs. We cannot control another player's character, so if you wish to have an scene with another player's character, then please discuss that scene with them directly.
All scene requests will need to be reviewed and approved before they are included in our schedule. Just because you request a scene, doesn't mean it will be granted in the way you expect either, so make sure to remain open minded even if your scene is approved - it might not pan out how you think it will. Please let us know if you have any questions!
