TheMudHost.net is currently the best bet for a host, since I don't particularly want to pay $56 dollars per year for a game. The database used will probably be TinyMush 3, mostly because there's a lot of soft code available that I can mangle appropriately for use.


Timeline as 1 month = 1 year would help the timeline move along without dragging.
    First week of the month is spring. (Gathering)
    Second week is summer.
    Third week is fall. (Festival of Flood and Flowers)
    Fourth week is winter.


Examples of good posts vs. bad posts? How do you encourage people to roleplay well? What is roleplaying well? Try to match your RP partners pace. If you enjoy RPing quick, witty one-line posts, then that's fine, but you probably shouldn't try to do so with someone who writes four paragraphs for every action.

(BAD)
She wrapped her arms around herself and shuddered, averting her gaze. "I don't know," Sayete murmured unhappily. "I just.. don't know! No one ever told me it'd be like this." She'd never expected that somehow, impossibly, that her life could get worse. Sayete sighed, and the self-pity in her voice was practically tangible by this point as she asked: "What.. what was it like? For you?"

Mahda shrugged.

Sayete blinked owlishly at the older elf. "I don't understand..."

Mahda sighed. "It just happened. We rolled and got over it. The problem with you purebloods is that you think too much."

Mahda shrugged, digging through her bag. She found a strand of seed and tossed it back, chewing on it briskly. "Not hard."

Sayete blinked owlishly at the older elf. Her attention had, at least temporarily, been diverted from self-pity, and there was a slightly belligerent slant to her confusion. "I don't understand..."

Mahda sighed, rolling her eyes. "It just happened," she said, mouth full. "We rolled and then we got over it. Two turns later, I tossed him off with the fawn. 's easy." She turned her head and spat out a seed before continuing. "That's the problem with you purebloods. You think too much! Make everything easy complicated, and for no good reason!"
 

(GOOD)
Sayete hugged herself, staring at a spot over Mahda's shoulder. "No one ever told me it'd be like this," she complained. "What was it like? For you?"

Mahda shrugged, popping a strand of seed in her mouth.

Sayete blinked owlishly at the older elf, frowning. "I don't understand."

"It just happened," she said, exasperated. "We rolled and we got it over with! That's the problem with oyu purebloods. You think too much!"
 


Have a forum set up specifically for things like posting logs, messages, ect. This is easier than using +bboards and +messages, because people can check forums on their phones, at a library, basically anywhere (in comparision to the fact you kind of need a MUSHclient for a MU*).
Encourage discussion and activity on the forums as a means of keeping interest and communication up in-game. Maybe you get a XP bonus (0.5%) every time you engage in plot discussion threads, and like a 2% double of XP if you actively start and participate in one? IDK.
 

Magic increase rates
All elves automatically get Sending, but some people might want to have elves who really, really suck at sending. (*raises hand*) So, IDK how that should work. I almost feel like all characters should get one free point in Magic, starting off, so they can buy up to Average sending, but let's be real, I think most characters would probably allot it to something else. :\

All elves could automatically gain 10 skillpoints each month / in-game year, to reflect that people learn and improve while growing. (This would also allow magic users to slowly level up their magic, while reflecting the canon times for magicla training.)

Characters born in game would become 'official' PCs rather than simply being puppeted at around 10. They'd get access to half the normal skillpoints (150) initially, but gain skillpoints at a doubled rate until they hit the normal 300 points. Maybe? We don't want 10 year olds having comparable skills to say, 15-20 year olds, but we don't want to make it impossible to play a magically gifted child.

Magic points wouldn't be given out during gameplay, except for rare, outstanding events. (A kid conceived, born and raised in the Palace may get bonus points, or an elf who's lived in the Palace for several years could petition the admins for magic points as per a magical awakening. IDK! Just possible ideas here.)
