Title: In Character Hunt Talk Preparation
Post by: Eric on October 10, 2016, 11:48:08 pm
Biju fights are still going on, but while there are plenty of fresh memories of these OOC fights, the IC fight question I dare to bring up again, and not without trying to provide some structure. There are several key components that will need to be figured out in order for IC hunts to actually work.

 Bear in mind that this is an officialization of RP, and as such, it should look and feel very different than layman and usual "official" RP. This is standardized to fit a certain box so that complaints, issues, and etc. can be minimized, just like with how OOC fights in the current biju matches are going smoothly.

Now then, "preamble" aside, first let's consider the components of the IC biju match:

1) Uncovering the identity of the host or summoner.

2) Hunting down the host or summoner.

3) Fighting, if necessary, the host or summoner in order to take the beast.

4) Getting away with #3, if applicable.

5) Sealing the biju into the new host, be it the winner or the winner's choice.

These 5 components, in my opinion, are the essentials of the IC biju hunt, and as many can observe, all 5 parts have had hotly contested portions in the past. So it is high time, with some of theses new hosts getting settled and others still fighting their OOC matches, that we make it clear what is acceptable and what is not during these hunts. What is safe to be left up to the RPers and what absolutely must have regulation.

The first and foremost issue that trumps all others though except do we even want to have an IC hunt system, is the simple question:

And, or Or?

OOC matches and IC matches, with one taking precedent over the other, or only one at a time; or OOC matches or IC matches by preference?
