So this is something that was done previously by Lucas when he was an Admin, I would like to take it over and start it up again as I think it is a great idea and a way for us all to touch base month to month, on what is going on, on sim. I apologize it's late but I will try to do this at the beginning of each month.. I'm gonna go ahead and copy his format for it because if it ain't broke why fix it?
New Story Weavers:
We will have a sim plot pending for December 1st so more to come on that.. a few of you have already been poked about it.
That being said if you have any ideas for a sim plot please poke a story weaver about it or an admin so we can brainstorm and bring your ideas to life. We are definitely looking to start strong in to the new year and get some sim wides going.
Drugs - no new designer drugs. If you have an idea for one propose it to an admin. Any drugs that are not common street drugs like cocaine, heroin, etc have to have an approval from an admin and a specific NC outlining what the drug is, where it comes from, effects, so on and so forth.
Current story weavers: Jess Corven, Dee, Lily Martiel and Bexley Kozel

BUSINESSES NEEDING LEADS
We have a few shops open for you to create your own business as well!
NEW BUSINESSES – WELCOME TO NEW LEADS!
Please check out their business and engage them in RP!
This is one last subject I want to touch on quickly! We can all write, that's what we're here for! Lately we have noticed a trend of people waiting around for RP to come to them. I am actively challenging you all to step out of your comfort zones and seek RP.
I totally understand everyone is shy, especially new players that may not know who they can approach and what they can do. But new or old I want to say this: If someone is on sim out in the open, they should be IC. That means you can approach them.
If you're worried about just walking up, some ideas are:
I really would like to see us shift away from putting all the pressure on a few key players to starting scenes. There is no harm in asking. Lets all try really hard to be proactive in engaging each other because we all deserve RP and I would hate to see anyone get burnt out from always being the one to have to start a scene, or anyone leave because they feel no one is approaching them. So this is a sim wide challenge.. lets change the narrative and all become that person that can start up a scene on a whim! Life is too short to always be comfortable.
On that note that's all the news for now, with the Holidays coming up I fully understand people will be busy. But fun things are planned for December.. stay tuned and feel free to reply with any thoughts, concerns, ideas, etc.
