The Cartographers

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Remæus on Tue Jan 19, 2016 5:28 pm

Ten years of world-building, what a landmark! Hundreds of new dungeons have been launched, incorporating as much of the to-date collaborative storytelling that has been written in our existing ~500 or so existing settings. As no new players have expanded to the newly-created frontier, it's up to us to ensure safe player passage into these mysterious realms beyond.

A Cartographer is one who creates maps, lending their own interpretations of the way the world has been composed in the form of visual storytelling tools. Designing and publishing primarily images with associated "clickable" coordinates, the Cartographers provide players with context into which they can write their own story. They shall be the pioneers of both place and time, assisting players in navigating as-of-yet untold worlds up until they themselves can forge their own.

So, what exactly will The Cartographers be doing?
While The Historians will be experts on the history of a given location, the Cartographers will be experts of the locations themselves. By taking charge of making sure locations (and their exits) properly reflect their written history, the Cartographers will be essential components in highlighting the amazing world-building which has been done by other players in The Multiverse.

Where do I sign up?
If you're seriously interested in becoming a Cartographer, create a character in The Multiverse and post a link to their profile here. Feel free to make any character of your choosing, but be sure to include any preferred locations you'd like to work with in the character's profile. You might even consider making them a local resident of that location using the "Create a Character Here" button in the top right-hand corner of the Setting page itself!

Spoiler: show
Ten years of collaborative worldbuilding, what a landmark! Hundreds of locations have been fleshed out through activity, a large percentage of which were created as a result of collaborative storytelling all across The Multiverse. A Cartographer is a person who creates maps, lending a literal interpretation of the way the world has composed itself. The Cartographers of The Multiverse will be the pioneers of place and time, helping canvas the way the Multiverse has been composed.

So, what exactly will The Cartographers be doing?

The Cartographers will be tasked with the fine tuning of the locations of the Multiverse. While The Historians will be experts on the history of a given location, the Cartographers will be experts of the locations themselves. By taking charge of making sure locations properly reflect their history, and are fleshed out to the extent which encourages future activity & the reading of past activity, the Cartographers will be essential components in highlighting the amazing worldbuilding which has been done in The Multiverse.

If you're seriously interested in becoming a Cartographer, create a character in The Multiverse and post a link to their profile here. Feel free to make any character of your choosing, but be sure to include any preferred locations you'd like to work with in the character's profile.

Thanks for volunteering your time and efforts in this initiative, Durandal! Your character has been added to the group The Cartographers. Stay tuned for a message regarding what happens next, but while you wait consider locations you'd be interested in working with.

Have gone ahead and added a Master List of All Planets & a list of Stations to the group as a designated log, as well as a list with which Cartographers have taken on which planet!

If you own a planet consider making a designated cartographer character to execute through!

If you come across a planet that is not in the log, please link it here!

Thank you! Awesome work guys!

roleplay/the-multiverse/characters/ifrit-atundai

Specifically working with the new Talmora system. Ifrit doesn't see much use anymore, not since the storyline he was going to be part of just kinda fell flat.

Defunct characters are great for recycling into functional purposes
The best stories do not have just one or two characters, but all sorts of characters. You might not see them that often or know them that well, but the fact that they were there is what makes the story seem real.

After all, Life is full of characters, is it not?
