Today, I rolled out the next generation Character Evolution System for Dead End City which includes a major change to the way we handle roles and titles in the main role-play group.

For the past couple years, we have offered a variety of starting roles; those roles helped define people's interest in their scenes and get them started. However, as time goes by and stories evolve, a lot of characters can't identify with roles like "Innocent" or "Lurker" as they have moved well beyond that. After putting much thought and design in, I have created a system that will cater and reward to our current generation of RP'ers with the following features...

  • The new starting roles have been paired down to "Denizen", "Innocent", and "Lurker. The idea here in keeping these three roles was to offer a range of character morals ... /predator/neutral/victim/
  • As you build your medical and police record, everytime medical or police staff submit a report, the system will do a check on your history including time spent on sim, job hours, and even how much time you spent in the red light district and underground/hidden areas to award special titles in the new "Dead End Deviants" group.
  • The new titles are designed to offer reputation and social reward for players who have diversified their RP; the ones who are down to fight and take a beating, or even get caught, will be rewarded for the new opportunities they have forged by getting others involved. It's not all about winning, and that's what this system is designed to recognize.

In light of this roll out, I will be releasing a new Welcome Area that has been completely redesigned and minimized for the best experience for both new and existing players. The application portal will also be revized to reflect the new starting roles.

For existing Deviants, you will be defaulted to Denizens. In time, you will earn the role again in the new "Dead End Deviants" group, along with other titles such as Criminal, Felon, Outlaw, to Wicked. There are a few other paths dedicated to victim and lurker roles too. It doesn't matter what role you started with; it's based on your role-play that you will be awarded an appropriate title.

If you have questions or concerns, feel free to voice them and I will address them to the best of my ability.

Thanks!
