All right. So, for those who volunteered to help out with fixing/updating RotR's opening, I've given the front post some thought about what needs to be done. Just to begin with, here's what I think needs to be updated:
It's really old. While it's fine for nostalgia's sake, all it does at this point is show the events leading up to the RPG, and does not really reflect anything that has happened recently--one might be led to assume that Operation RALLY is still the main starting point, when it's really not. So, we need something new.
What I need from you guys is ideas of what the new opening should be. I'm going to write it up in the same style as it is now--as if it's a post of its own--but I'm not sure what to showcase. Should I show a meeting between Buzz, Sleight, and Joker, discussing the loss of Bounty's portion of TR? Something with Ford and one or two of his agents, hinting at future plans? Throw some ideas out there. -Misc. sections need to be removed/updated
Rereading several of the mechanics sections, I'm finding that a few of them are totally unneeded, partly because they are never used and partly because they don't apply anymore. Things like the Move Tutor section, the spot detailing "typeless" moves, stuff like that that no one pays attention to anymore--it needs to go. Possibly the familial relationship section, as I don't think it's an issue at this point.
Others need to simply be rewritten or updated, like the factions section and the achievement section. -Story Summary
Tying into a reaaaallllly earlier post that I can't seem to locate, I think the RPG would benefit quite a bit from a large-scale summary of everything that has happened so far--from now to the beginning of the RPG, possibly starting from the most recent events and back-filling from there. Obviously, this is going to be a big project that will require a lot of help from RotR veterans.
Even so, it shouldn't be horribly difficult--I think we can get it done.
Branching off of this...
-Story in a Nutshell Section
What we remove from the introduction could probably be relocated here--giving back-story on the RPG while leaving room for new stuff. Just need to figure out how to go about that.
So yeah. Anyone who wishes to share their thoughts or opinions or questions, I would appreciate it. =)
