Player Generated Content
Here at the Shards of Orn, players directly impact the entire play experience. Every Race, Class, and Trade is created by the players. Monster Stigmas are created by players. Adventures are written and run by players*. Everyone is free to contribute as much or as little as they like; if you want to come and play, do it! Want to try your hand at writing the next great adventure for your fellows? Do it! Want to narrate? Do it!
*Players must attend at least three events before they are allowed to submit content. Potential Narrators must try out by running content with a current Narrator.
Writers, now's your chance to get bonus karma! Starting November 1st, the off season writing incentive will once again be active!
"As in past years, I've instituted an added karma incentive for writing during the off season. Whenever you get an Adventure or Field Battle approved starting in November and going through the end of February, you will get one bonus Karma that is awarded immediately. The intent is to build up a bank of stories before next season to give us lots to choose from and some padding for the leaner months."
