Okay, so this goes out to everyone who's had a hand in playing at the dorms or involved in one way or another in our town of Hensonville, be it via gameplay or their unified fanfic stories. Because participation's been a touch withdrawn, I thought how can we make it more involved again? Well, there are at least two possibilities. Let me say that neither of these WILL NOT replace the main dorms/town thread at the MC forums, but rather help supplement it. 1 An MC Hensonville game could be created for play on Facebook. You could log on as a player, get X amount of money for signing, then get Y incremental amount for doing jobs at various places in town. The money you earn would go towards buying items or renting rooms in the new MC Dorm apartment-styled townhouses. We could have a "Battle" feature that could be either facing off a squadron of goblins in underground passages, or running all the way past 5 or so non-descript Muppet monsters in the town's park. The more money you get, the more items or chores or properties you'd be able to unlock and interact with. My hope would be, that if this gets done, and I have 0 knowledge in setting it up, is that it could eventually generate itself and keep fresh by adding special competitions or events for particular holidays/happenings throughout the year. This could help to then foster post activity in the main thread on the forums. 2 Another route that could be taken is to have our own MC Hensonville site, something on the level of MC Jr., MopFam, or even Sex & Violence places. We could have individual threads for the individual establishments, substories, special events, and any fics that might evolve out of that. Course, it could happen that one forum's dorm/town activity overtake the other's so yeah, I'm still tinkering with the possibility. Nothing's set in stone yet and I'm willing to listen to see how we can make it fun for all and get greater participation once again, though I can't rully force anyone who decides to join us to play... That's a choice everyone has to make for themselves. Well, I've said my piece... Now sit back and enjoy as I turn it to RedPiggy for the next part of the presentation, detailing the town's newer 2010 layout. *Takes seat as Kelly begins.
