I'm just going to throw this out there and see what you guys think. I was reminising in a post i just made about keeping the right attitude in Arkadia and it made me think that maybe we should do what we did back on calypso with a group of us back in 2004. We basically didn't quite create a government so much as an organization. I wont go into explaining what we did exactly back then and i'll just give you my idea of what i think we should try to do now. So this is what i suggest. What if we had a couple different societies Organized to do certain tasks and these societies worked together to form a larger Organization. Society A Information -Mentors -Disciples (new players) -Information (stats on mobs, items, mapping...) Society B Army & Hunting -Hunters -Player Killers Society C Production -Miners -Crafters -Traders Society D Adventure -Space Pilots -Transporters -Dj's -Event Organizers -People who just Like to do everything and unique roles We did this before with R.O.M.E. back in 2004 and it worked well. Basically the Information soc would group mentor and bring in and monitored new people teaching them how things worked. This usually became a temporary spot for most as they would go onto one of the other societies where they fit in and would receive even more training and information i.e. Hunters go to hunting soc. But some would stay and be the Mentors and teachers and organizers. The Hunting soc and army would be the sort to go after land grabs and would focus on hunting and would then provide those materials to the Production soc. Having Miners and Crafters and Traders all organized into one soc really helps keep prospective and communication as to market prices. For example crafters need materials and the miners can say look its really hard to find this stuff, and the traders can kind help in getting the materials from miners and hunters to the crafters. The big part of being part of this organization is working together as a team trying to not be greedy and to try to help each other. Like we had traders buying at lesser price and selling at lesser price. Also for new ones them bringing in all there small amounts of materials to the traders instead of them TT'ing it helped them sell to the crafters cheep and then the crafters could then sell to the hunters and the newbies cheep too. Look I'm not trying to be president or rune the planet or anything i'm just trying to provide the formula and the organization its really up to everyone else to make something like this work. And if your wondering what happened to R.O.M.E. basically MA lied to us about the first land grab and screwed over a lot of people and over half the people of R.O.M.E. quit the game. Otherwise it still be going. But I'll tell you this it was the coolest and most fun thing to be a part of. We'd have meetings to discuss what WE can do to make the game better. Like Regulating sweat prices to something reasonable to everyone, talking to people who use it and the people that supply it and come to an agreement of buy and sell prices. We also organized events for ROME members only and trade deals, hunting parties, social parties. We really felt like we were new colonist on a new planet and doing something really cool. So it's in your guys hands I'm willing to take a bit of a lead if that's what people want but like i said I'm not trying to be some tyrant ruler kind of thing i have no hopes and desire of being a big powerful leader.
