Land of Birds Mission Template
« on: February 18, 2017, 12:48:10 am »

Mission Name

Status: Is either "not started", "started", or "finished".

Mission Act: Act #0, Templates

Mission Participants: Player Participant (Character name or NPC name)

Estimated Time of Completion: 2 weeks is always the maximum with participants fewer than 5, but some missions are by design shorter than others. The # of participants and the nature of the Event should be considered.

Mission Synopsis: The primary point of these "missions" is to give structure to the entire Event. Each Act has a definite start and endpoint, and due to the nature of the Missions, the participants should be declared early on; even if their characters do not make an immediate appearance. Additionally, the participants and potential participants need to be able to have a general understanding of what the goal of the RP is and how much flexibility they actually have in RPing the various characters that they may be controlling.

At the same time, the synopsis needs to be kept relatively brief unless the RP is essentially "scripted". Anything that the players outright dictate, such as how a character talks to another, should not be included in the synopsis. The synopsis should state the who, what, where, why, and when, but not necessarily the "how". It should also include conditions for completion, which may be as vague or as specific as reasonable.

The synopsis is thus the hardest part of the mission description, as it must fit into the overall, overarching story. If the synopsis is too long to be posted on the Ichiraku Ramen shop mission board, then a link to its forum posting should be made.

**** If desired, colors may be added by the mission poster in order to create more flair. *****
