  1. as a gm running a few open campaigns you should be prepared a lot to improvise. Come up with dialogue thats engaging and building characters that players can be emotionally manipulated or attached to. Learn to multitask efficiently and split your brain into cores of where you can consider improvisations, how the players are interpreting your actions, what youre actions are meant to interpret, and how your actions are coming off. I found roleplaying is extremely good for the prior mentioned, if you get really into it; you should aswell get to know the characters before and during the campaign to write dialogue that may prod or engage them. If a player merely shows up with “Big Chungus” the fighter, then they may; but for the person who designs a character with clear thought and an open story, you can provide a lot that may develop them and cause them to become a lot more in love than initially thought. Aswell, provide hooks. An extremely important thing to do is that given “Unlimited ways to tackle a situation”, players will pick the most direct out of cautiousness typically. I found that providing hooks, or leads, into different options of how to tackle a plan is a splendid idea. Perhaps while you’re stalking a noble your group plans to secretly kill, the questgiver encourages “learning his routine” or “hes got a terrible cough, i think he takes medicine for it”, and provide options that are hidden from the easy-eye but a prying-eye would find such quite easily, it really makes the players feel smart, and I feel that is the most rewarding feeling playing tabletop. Overall Invest your players in the campaign invest your players in their characters, and your characters make the players feel smart, and like they have ultimate control over their surroundings and the world around them use writing that allows you to improvise and think of ways to connect point A to point B, and as an aftersession consider what their actions may lead to if they divert from course Best of luck GMing, I hope my advice helps- im currently gming 3 homebrew-setting pathfinder sessions, and these are points I take a lot from; alongside others, like quality writing and storylining, etc
  2. i concur but it just depends on the players. some want illidan aesthetic some dont want to rp consequence (or intentionally do it to gain a story to tell, ‘i lost my eyes by etc etc’) if there was no “seers”, there already exists alternatives like druidic greensight, and while its not practical all seers become druids, people just wouldn’t rp the blinding with monk healing

  4. agree ((pvp is one of the most irritating lines because it is an “easy solution” to someone who may put significant effort into their roleplay and the preparation of this event. People can arm up with their best weapon, their best armor and their cool CA to get fucked by someone whos better at clicks. There’s a place for clicks, but not at all in that way. Oppositely, you can approach the conflict with none of these things, but with extremely strong roleplay in your pocket, and still get shut down because you might appear like “some goon” or because the person is lazy, spiteful, or doesnt wish to deal with conflict. It’s painful to say how many times I’ve seen this used personally, and how many roleplayers I know who utilize lore just to be shut down. I low key have been pilled into CAs to opt into not being inclined to pvp but theres so many problems its just idealistic. Hope something can be done about it sometime. Though I think its both a problem culturally with OOC bickering, targetting, petty rivalries and the like, theres things functionally that can be done on the server i believe. This has been a problem for a long time and its unfortunate theres not much that can be done about it

      pretty sure that material draws a little inspiration from https://rimworldwiki.com/wiki/Luciferium, might be worth giving it a look
