Let us piece together, you and I, what fate becomes the Firestorm. If anyone has access to the public board postings about them or any insight into the IC plotline behind the removal. I'd be interest to see what kind of efforts the staff made. Who knows, it might somehow impress us.
The removal of the Firestorm is an IC event, Staff said so and as someone who played in Tuluk the last few months, I also sorta knew it was before even reading Staff announcement (Just read the IC board in Tuluk, there's been Firestorm news for the last 6+ months).
I don't play in Tuluk. I have no clue what's happening there. So, a follow-up question: IC events being driven by staff, or players?
Staff and players both contribute to plots. Sometimes players develop things that staff assist. Sometimes players assist in things that staff create. In the end, it doesn't matter too much except to people that won't be satisfied regardless of what staff or players do.
Translation: This was all staff. Players had nothing to do with it. Players could not stop or change the outcome. Details of the plot don't matter because the player actions don't matter. Kadian leaders didn't have a chance to change events.
grumble: Triste is not a leftist. Triste is a right wing nutjob just like you.

grumble: Triste just happens to be trans. Imagine the irony.

grumble: But myself, I don't take issue with there being slaves in the game, references to slaves, or that certain races are preferred as slaves in the game. Look at the Sun Runners, it's considered an honor to be one of their slaves.

grumble: It's all part of the history of the game. Armageddon should come with a trigger warning, if it doesn't already.

grumble: Necker, however much I miss saying "Sup my necker?", was a bit much. I can do without it because I see the reason why it's a bad idea. I'm not sure too many were offended but one is enough.
