    Questions about the blog post

    Post by Corral on Mon 2 Mar 2009 - 9:15

    "Cheriour ABSOLUTELY should have been branded, for killing a Fallen outside of honourable combat."
    Is that really the case if it's known to be an accident? Seriously?


    "Anyway, this one time, he comes back all covered in blood and it seems
    HE has broken a mandate (the one to not wander around on your own) ..."
    Wait, what happened to all mandates being revoked, as was announced by the kings? If we have mandates that are still active, somebody should tell us what they are.


    "In the end ... the Black Court was full...."
    So who made Rook?

    Those are all really good questions.

    As I've mentioned before, the blog posts about the Census aren't supposed to always be "factual".

    It's much more like reading the Letters to the Editor section of the Leader-Post.

    ... Are you telling me that these are all false statements? Or just saying that I should verify elsewhere?

    I'm saying it's like reading the Letters to the Editor/Opinions section of the LeaderPost.

    'true' and 'false' are relative.

    They seem to be written anonymously from the perspective of specific characters, so they all should be taken with a grain of salt.

    The interesting question is who is writing what.

    And whether these are somehow accessible to characters, but still totally anonymous.

    In fact, some of the blog posts *have* been written from an IC point of view.

    I've asked players to submit 'Census recaps' on occasion, as well.

    And sometimes, the posts are taken from the point of view of someone in the room, but a nonspecific someone. Sometimes they're written by a kind of 'journalist' in the room.

    Apparently the forum double posted my comment. This is a deletion of one of the two so that you don't read it twice or think that I think that you need to read it twice. Smile

    I've always viewed the blog as being written by an invisible observer to the census -- not really a character, just a presence. There are too many things "reported" that are skewed to a... bizarre... viewpoint. As well, for as much that is reported, that much or more is left out. Things that one character feels important are glossed over while "trivialities" are highlighted.

    I think it's like history. It's a nice story but the only way to know if it really happened the way it's reported is to have been there yourself.

    That's a *really* good point.

    And I would really love it if you (and by "you", I mean *all of you*) sent me things you found particularly salient about the game; they could be included in blog posts in some fashion. I truly believe that in any LARP, every character should be the star at least once.

    Okay. So it is written by an army of invisible gonzo journalists.

    "he only way to know if it really happened the way it's reported is to have been there yourself."

    Failing that, it helps to have several people corroborating the facts as they see them.

    But I could ask in character, right? I suspect there's no actual source of the blog information, but something along the lines of "I heard that..." or "Somebody told me..." would be OK? (I mean, we *would* have heard...?)

    You know, you could just do side scenes with people during the month. Email, in person, whichever works to have information flow. (I really need to mention that the spice must also flow.)

    If you talk to a variety of people then some of the things might come out naturally without you having to actively pursue the information. Who knows, they might even volunteer more than you expected to hear.
