We need help finding information from the old forums to put in our planning documents. The old forum is chock-full of old ideas, and it’s well worth trying to find out the many things TR has already decided.

If you’re interested, you would need to:

  • Go to the old forum and search for posts on a specific topic
  • Write out a summary of the information, in paragraphs or bullet points or whatever
  • Post that summary in a new thread here on the new forums with links to the old discussion.

Some notes:

  • A good example of a properly researched thread would be the House Dres Settlements thread, which has condensed information, reposted concepts, etc.
  • Another good example of one in progress would be the Imperial Leadership thread.
  • Any “under construction” document in the Planning Documents is up for grabs.
  • Any region, worldspace, faction, group, whatever, which does not have a document in the planning documents, is up for grabs.

If you’re interested, you can PM me or post in this thread, or, preferably, just dive in and do what you can. You don’t have to find everything on your own, but anything you can do to help is good.

This request for help will remain good until we fill the planning documents, which is going to take a while. If you’re looking at this thread sometime in the future, post anyway!

Thieves Guild
Also, this is very handy → Master Plan http://tamriel-rebuilt.org/old_forum/viewforum.php?f=226 , it contains all of these factions and more!

I'd say we keep it to these listed above for now, I am already “somewhat” dealing with making a summary of the Empire(which is a tad bit difficult, because P;C sometimes goes another direction lore-wise). I also would probably like to do a bit of the fighters guild.

It would also be helpful if, along with the old stuff, you could search on current TR in the meeting notes if the topics had been discussed more.

I do recall we touched quite a few of these factions back in the dark ages of late 2015, and my impression is that current TR has no idea about these discussions either.

But the disorganized mess on the old forum takes priority. Thanks to all who’re diggin in and and godspeed.

Also, if PC is going in a different direction, either mark it specifically in the thread or open an additional one in cross-project coordination. TR in the past was quite isolationist, but the times and policies changed along with the people and as of right now, we’re not being snooty at each other anymore.

First to need finish quest asset posting as I’ve been delaying on that. Then after that, I’ll start at the bottom of that list. So Fighter’s Guild?

Question, as I was noticing this while trolling through the old forums:

Assets left behind over there. Transfer to asset browser or…?

For instance, our reboot of the Skyrender model is still buried back there:

Transfer them over, please.

Part of the reason we moved to Drupal entirely is because all the old stuff is buried in 10 years of old, uncategorized forum topics. This clean break was supposed to be an opportunity to go through the old stuff and find out what’s actually there, because nobody remembers all of it.

Now they’re just going to be buried in 10 years worth of asset browser. laugh

Haha, I’ll do what I can over the coming weeks. Trying to get THIS forum’s worth of assets and stuff moved over first, but that’s nearing completion.

Nice. Thanks for all the help, everyone!

Does: concepts, textures, youtube vids, admin stuff e.g. PR, handbook, assets, small website things. Activity level: wildly unpredictable, disappears for a few days or a week (or more) without warning. Still active. Find me on Discord mainly but also IRC.

I am making a planning document for the Mages Guild (by summarizing the results of the old forum searching), as requested by Kaziem and i would like to know which of the Hlaalu Cities without exteriors are getting Mages Guilds so that i can have a complete list of mages guilds.

That only includes Narsis and Kragen Mar, I want to know where the other three Mages Guilds in Narsis district will be (if decided).

That is a bit iffy because we never actually formally discussed this, it was just between Gnomey and me mostly.

The other Mages Guild quarters are in Narun, Othmura, and Idathren. Idathren is not on the planning map yet, because we last discussed that in September informally.

There's three maps about it, though.

That's actually a good opportunity to schedule this for formal discussion and planning.

I've attached my most recent go at Idathren's position below, (I would have hosted on imgur, but it's currently acting up), to round off the older maps Atrayonis linked. The Mages Guild network is certainly not set in stone and is worth discussing, (though naturally not in this thread).
