Welcome to Carista. We are an original fantasy roleplay forum set in the world of Carista -- a place where the eight different systems of control are divided across countries and oceans and blood. The systems of control are Fire, Water, Earth, Wind, Ice, Plant, Health and Time -- all given to humanity in ages past.

Now, during a golden age throughout the kingdoms, rumors have come of the Loners discovering an ancient building deep underground that contains a legendary Relic that may hold the key to ultimate power or destruction. And so the race of kingdoms begin with the prize being a Relic of untold power...

I know where everything is and what every place has, but that is because I made it all. What I'd like to know from you guys is...

What is hard to find?
What did you wish we had more information on?
Would you like anything merged into one topic or split into several?
Would you move things around and how?
Would you completely reorganize all the information on the site and how?
What links are the most useful to you to have on the right sidebar?


What I am also struggling on is just how much information to provide on each Kingdom. As players that might petition to rule a Kingdom, what would be pushing the envelope and what wouldn't? I don't want to stifle you, but I want to give you a good foundation to stand on. Suggestions?

I find myself having to jump between threads a lot - mainly the kingdom subplots and the world pages - to get all the info I need. I think it'd be nice to have all country info on its own separate thread with the need to knows at the top and the more detailed stuff as you go down.

For magic, I'd like to see what the limits of each classification are and more of how that works so I know whether or not my potential character would be OP. Also, a very general census of what systems are most prevalent where. Some examples of what each classification would be able to do would be cool!

Would it be easier if each Kingdom had it's own thread containing all of this in the Kingdom Archives then?

I'm not entirely sure how I might put limits. I avoided this because, well, people's imaginations are fantastic and I don't want to box them up. Would it be helpful if there was a list that kept used elemental strengths and weaknesses for each Classification instead? If not, what kind of limits are you looking for?

Census containing NPCs, I am assuming? Is this something you'd like me to do or let a Plot Leader take care of? EDIT: I can put up basic ones too, and let the plot leader change them if need be.

Yeah, that'd be nice! And plot leaders could add onto it.

As for power limitations, I'm talking just very general things, like a time citizen probably wouldn't be able to stop time completely, but a master might. I'm all for letting imaginations go! I just want a few guidelines.

And yeah, a census containing NPCs like.... Ignis has 70% of its population in the fire system, etc. so if I wanted, say, a water person there, I'd be able to say how likely it is. And yeah, it could definitely be up to the plot leaders' discretion to change it.

Okay, each Kingdom now has it's own thread in the Kingdom Archives. I will be adding individual Kingdom maps soon. Also, I will be taking away all that information from "The World" thread shortly.

In "The World" thread where classifications were first discussed, more has been added with guidelines, vague as they are.

In the threads in the Kingdom Archives have been added general population demographics. HUZZAH!


Any other things, anyone?
