It’s time for another site update, Bon Voyage! We’ve been hard at work on this particular project for quite some time, but it’s finally time to unveil the much-awaited…
Return of the Daibukai!
That’s right! If you’ve been around the site long enough, it’s likely you’ve heard at least whispers of something called “Daibukai”. This was originally intended as a system to allow folks a chance at taking down Warlord-level antagonists in their own plots, as well as have their own OCs ascend to that sort of rank, while getting around the usual limitations of the Shichibukai - a system with a very finite number of members.
This re-implementation is intended to better integrate them into the site setting by way of a new announcement: What we are now calling World Events! The first of these was the “SMILEs All Around” announcement, which has now been moved into its own sub-board within the brand-new Forum Setting board. Keep an eye peeled for the upcoming second World Event, A Ripple in the Martial Seas! This World Event also features a very cool surprise at the end, done by risaka, so make sure you check it out!
Additionally, all of the old ways of using the Daibukai system are returning as well! Characters who wish to join the ranks will need to fill out the application template found here, while creating your own Daibukai for the purposes of your and your crews’ plots can simply be freely done!
Plot Request: Opening More Avenues!
The Daibukai aren’t the only things being added to the site, though - we’ve got an all-new system coming in hot! This is the Plot Request system, where formerly off-limits or otherwise restricted elements of the setting can be applied for use in your plots by meeting certain prerequisites or displaying an understanding of the consequences and a willingness to portray them appropriately!
This new system is debuting with a small selection of options at launch - the ability to request World Nobles and Site Canon Daibukai for use in your personal plots. However, we have more ways for this system to be used (including things like New World access!) planned, so I’ll once again urge you all to keep on the lookout for future announcements!
