Last night I encountered a situation of hand waving frustration on the part of multiple people. Everyone was trying to do the right thing, and no one was being an asshole intentionally. That being said, a lack of communication led to people feeling frustrated.
We have gone from having too few things going on to stepping on each others toes.
We have a large number of different groups, all with the purpose of communicating, but most of what happened last night was not communicated in any of them. There were assumptions that others would know and understand what we were doing. I would say that the resulting frustration was a sign that this was not the case.
The question I have for everyone, is where is the best place to communicate? I do not think that I can think of a single place where all the leaders of events, roleplay and storyline are all in one place. I will be posting this in multiple places today, hoping to get some agreement on where is the best places are.
That being said, I also think that sharing what roleplays you are running and your intentions are is also helpful. If we put the energy into communicating that we put into dealing with the results of lack of communication, good things would result.
For this week, I have the Lundene run into the Deeproads, Setting up a fae/Syvharan run (note, this does not have to be me leading it), More roleplay on the Blackmarket and Helping with the Hildi-Pretty pooh factory. Plus some roleplay for my own enjoyment and building.
