Suggestion Create Active International RP Areas

This idea is something I suggested in the staff meeting tonight. We were talking about how sometimes people think of factions like "silos" that contain and segregate players into corner of the site where they don't really interact much. and I suggested we make a "Babylon 5" style international space station where there's always an Open RP going.

Pisces Station used to be like this when Yamatai hosted the International Relations Conferences there and it actually had an RP plot going there for a while! It had arms for each major faction plus an Independent one where all the shady ships tended to dock, and that could be reactivated.

We could have multiple locations but we should keep it limited because we want player characters from different to actually cross paths and get to know each other and/or have low-level friction.

It's a cool idea and there are plenty of locations. The important part is having someone who wants to keep up and maintain a character at one of those locations (like you do with the SAoY recruiting depot). Akemi has a ton of independent space stations that could be cool locations to use, since even Kuvexians can show up and be space traders at them.

I just wanted to update everyone on this. This is the most popular suggestion on the suggestions forum and we plan to implement it.

I'm still figuring out details about where this would take place and who will be in charge of it, though (suggestions appreciated). In the meantime we're gonna keep hosting lots of open Open RPs that are friendly to international participants.

I didn't see the idea but heard about it from Whisper. Like I told him, this is a perfect location to RP the civilian side of life. Get culture seen from various perspectives and see them work together or collide to friction. Ahh the idea alone gets me excited to RP about it.

This is Commander Sheppard, and I endorse this idea!

I would upvote this more times if I could. Still love the idea, glad that we're going forward with it.
