Okay guys, there's quite a few things to go over here, so let's get right into it.

First off, small announcement about the staff team. Crows and Wysteria are stepping away for a little bit to focus on their real lives, but they'll be back soon enough! For the time being, however, the behind the scenes staff discussions will not be able to progress as much as usual, even at the slowed-down rate. We won't stop completely, don't worry, but it'll be a week or two before we can unveil anything that wasn't just about ready to go before tonight.

That's the behind the scenes discussions though! We're going to be sure to keep the discussion going here as much as we can, so that when it comes time to draft what the rules, regulations and requirements for steam power, we already know what you guys do and do not want to see.

Which brings me to steam power! We love seeing your enthusiasm about steam power! Getting this implemented has proven to be a challenge, since there's a lot to consider. Infrastructure that hasn't been maintained, the actual machinery itself, coal, etc. So what we've been trying to do is find a balance between all of those things that doesn't completely prohibit it. Such considerations have included members being able to buy temporary structures for bones and having permanent ones be a reward for donating, though these are just ideas, nothing set in stone.

We hear you loud and clear about prioritizing the revitalization of TNW's core groups over just adding a new one. The new group and plot isn't totally off the table and if you guys have interest in seeing more of it (even just more information on it) that's great, but it'll be on the backburner for the time being in favor of more pressing issues and exciting developments.

I'd also like to amend a grave oversight on my part. When I started planning this thread over a week ago, I had every intention of giving Truce the full and proper credit she deserves for the steam power idea. Without her we would not be having this discussion, and I'm disappointed in myself that when I actually drafted the thread for the first time, it slipped my mind. I'm even more disappointed that I didn't remember between drafting and posting. My apologies to Truce and anyone else that found her lack of credit dishonorable, a slight, or an intentional attempt at stealing her idea. This will not happen again.

Lastly, we've got an anonymous survey that we'd invite anyone and everyone to take. It's a bit long, but we've got a lot we want your feedback on.

What's up guys gals and nonbinary pals, welcome to our new staff discussion update thread! We wanted to peel back the curtain a little bit and give you guys an idea of what's going on behind the curtain, and also get feedback from you guys about potential changes. Be it new plots we're coming up with, events, rule or game changes, questions you guys asked us, etc! Not every single thing will go here (like rule enforcement, for example), nor will details of our discussions, but the big stuff y'all should know about? Yes. If y'all feel strongly about liking or disliking something we're discussing, please voice it in this thread (or, if you'd like a bit more privacy, my dms are always open, as are the other staffers). We want to hear from you and make changes that excite you.

Speaking of changes, staff have been discussing two major things that would alter TNW in big ways!

-- Firstly, allowing steam power in the game. Right now we're leaning towards allowing it, and are discussing how to implement it in a way that keeps things somewhat restricted, while still allowing them to be in the game. This discussion came up after a question asked by Truce regarding if it would be possible.

-- Secondly, a new group with a new biome and plot with a new creature.

We have other ongoing discussions atm that we'll touch on later, but those are the ones we're most interested in getting feedback on.
