Testers Needed

I need a few people to help me test a "quest-like" concept and make it worth doing for others, for no reward but the uh satisfaction of doing a good deed (or something) ? 

Looking for a group of three that can all make the same general timeslot. You can also separate yourself into multiple groups of three in different timeslots and we'll just go through them if the first works out, but at least one group to start :) You'd need... 

  • Patience - The reason we need to work this out together is that as it is right now, I don't know how many people would enjoy it... and what the best way is to make it easily accessible so it's a "show up and go" kind of thing. That means it's not a show up kind of thing right now, hehe. I think it could be fun, but it needs work.
  • Honesty/Communication - We want to make it better for people who come after, so we need to able to communicate what doesn't work. It's also possible that no one sees it working at all and it's not worth pursuing, so you need to be able to call it like you see it ! Constructive is best - what would work bettter? - but anything is good.
  • New Character - You won't have to write a submission, and it won't count against your cap, but you'd need to be willing to make a testing character to provided specs, even the name. This is only for mechanical reasons. We can talk about it more if you end up helping.
  • Bonus: Sense of humor. Something will probably go wrong. Best case scenario is that it goes wrong in a really entertaining way. An interest in the lore and stories in the world is good but not required. 

We'd get together IG in a few weeks, so general timeslot agreement is better than very specific dates for me. Volunteering in this thread as a group with timeslots already worked out is ideal, but if schedule-wrangling is the only option we can do that, too. If, after getting more information, you're no longer interested in participating, you can of course say never mind and we'll figure it out!

I already sent you a PM, so just wanted to add that my timeslot is the same as Lance's every week day (preferably not Friday's), as long as there is notice.  The next couple of weeks will be a bit all over the place, but things should start to settle about mid next month.

I'm curious about this as well, it sounds interesting. My time zone is PST, my schedule flexuates quite a bit but with appropriate notice will help. The best time for me is in the evenings after 7pm during the week, the weekend as stated before will depend on how long notice is given.

Lance, CB, and Serissa look likeliest for a soonish 5-8 (at latest) PST timeslot, maybe given silverblades's limited days LFFF and ystrday could make a B group as Sunday or Monday potential (given notice)? 

In any case the goal is to have more if it ends up being something that could be fun, so that time scheduling won't be a big deal, just looking for an easy schedule to start :) If there end up being more, try to hook up in time groups and I'll just get around to working through them. Thanks for the volunteers !

If were creating new characters does it matter what we pick or a preference given over another? If were dividing into groups thats fine. Just let us know what type of characters to make so theres not 5+ thieves trying to backstab each other for the loot...lol

EDIT:   * looks back up to original post and sees the " specs needed".. nevermind..

Right now I'm getting with people who can all group in a slot, for convenience. I have at least one group, but as I mentioned if you and ystrday can work out a group time three of you can make, that can be another, hehe. I just don't have specific time/dates right now and they're subject to change in any case, so general trends of times are easier for me to deal with than day by day. 

And yeah, provided specs. Please remember the experimental and patience parts! We're working on hammering out some concepts that may or may not work out more than providing an all-in-one experience :)

Unfortunately I will not be able to make every Thursday, I have a set appointment every other Thursday in the evening. I don't think we are going to meet every week though, right?

No, probably just once, but at an undetermined date after the first group - timeslot deal is just for ease of setting one later, so I don't need to send a lot of PMs back and forth trying to nail one down later, hehe. silverblades might have better luck with his Sunday, though ?

Sunday and Monday evening is good.

I was on with LFFF last night for a few hours, not sure how his schedule is but if we can hold Monday evening that would be great, Just need one more.

I prefer not a sunday, can do Monday better, but like Thursday if not every Sunday then it should be alright.

Your timeslot looks to be too early for me here.  If I'm translating correctly 5-8 PST is now 6-9 PDT, which is 4-8 Central Daylight time.  Earliest I can make it between work and providing daycare is 6 p.m.  on a Thursday.  Friday is a different story, no grandbaby, but I still work until 3 local.  Are we still doing this?

I think almost everyone simply forgot last Thursday (I did anyways and realised just when it was supposed to start that I had too much on my plate that day), and then Acacea's setup crashed just before the start time as well so she would have to set up all over again and thus a later start (though I think she was going to wing it with no set up if everyone was there).

Setup did not crash. I ran into an obstacle I didn't realize existed until the day of, and needed to change plan. It was just a heads up that beta was going to be more like alpha under those circumstances.
