Dev's Choice Is Back!

  • Retired Game Master

I just went through and updated my testing list with all of your submissions. I have given a thumbs up to everyone I got added to my list.

 

Please bear in mind that we can only highlight 2 arcs at a time. and my aim is to keep up a monthly win. With so many submissions, it may be a small while before an arc is featured.

 

Please do not let that dissuade you from dropping in new submissions and enjoying each other's arcs. There will be events too (like the recent Cim event contest) that we get into. So, plenty of opportunities to enjoy each other's creations!

 

And if an arc is rejected from Dev's Choice for any reason, I or another GM will personally message the creator and inform them. They will have a chance to make revisions and we can test again.

 

 

Bottom line: 

 

KEEP SPREADING THE LOVE!

Is there a technical reason for this? How does it work?

Check out my stories in the Mission Architect. Just search for "@Take One" or "SFMA". Here are some enticing titles:

  • Praetoria-related: Earth Revolution Red, Earth Revolution Blue
  • Mercenary Action: West Libertalia: Born And Raised, West Libertalia: Global Empire, West Libertalia: Love And Rockets
  • Soldier of Arachnos Arcs: The Tangled Weave, A Taste For Evil, Faultline By Night, Fear And Loathing On Striga, The Warburg Connection,
  • Various: Project Dragon, Evolve Or Die, The Murders in the RWZ Morgue, The Last Crystal Out Of Cimerora

These are just a few, and more to come...

No, not a technical reason. It's more of a logistics reason. We have a finite number of testers and hours available for testing. So, I decided to keep the final announcement to 2. But I can absolutely take a look at potentially increasing that number if possible.

I was just curious, since the original devs also used a limit of two arcs at a time, if I remember correctly. I thought maybe there was some technical reason.

Your vigilante philosophy is put to the test in this tale of shifting loyalties and outright deceit.  The Bleed [3 parts]: Your investigation of arcane fissures in IP leads you to uncover a 100-year old secret shrouded in magic, blood, and betrayal. One Shots:  Of Guns and Asa Ronan; The Tenuous State of Grace; Garden of the Will; Gravity; The Book of Bond's; The Lost Girls; Injustice Systems; Wednesday’s Wyverns; Of ‘Dine and Men; Dark Legacy; Shadow and Silver

Yeah, we updated out submissions to encourage everyone to play each other's arc more. 

Do you have any arcs that were created by others which you would like to nominate?

With a hungry eye towards providing new content for my SG, I've been poking my head into @cranebump's arcs and would like to nom the rock-solid one-off Of Guns and Asa Ronan.

Lead of the <New Praetorians Initiative> supergroup.  Goldside enjoyer.  Perennial RP-etiquette overthinker.

Most of my writing is SG-internal, but the following are SFMA that anybody should be able to play if you want new story-based content.

  • NPI: Duray, Duray | 25575: - The New Praetorians scramble to stop the Praetorian and Primal Virgil Durays from getting the band back together.
  • NPI: Brickstown Vice | 36729, 40648, 40803 - The New Praetorians aid Marauder in a drug bust that dredges up his past.  Branches into two paths.
  • NPI: Red Resistance | 43796 - The New Praetorians run afoul of vigilantes after a robbery gone wrong.  Crossover with <Hero Corps Founders Falls>.
  • NPI: Leucochloridium | 44863: - A wellness check on a Woodvale cleanup officer turns over unfinished, Praetorian business.
  • How Emperor Cole Saved Christmas | 45794 - A 100% authentic simulation of how Emperor Cole singlehandedly saved the holiday of Christmas!
  • Bassilisk | 51947 - Several Paragon City villain groups fight over the Rikti's dumbest entirely-canonical doomsday weapon.

We are discussing a format change for Dev's Choice. At this time, I don't have an April selection, no. But updates will come soon.
