ehhh, I’ll admit, I’ve been coming across some problems with the original plan for the guide
with all the amazing tutorials on the masterlist, and also the entire wiki, I’m not sure how much I can put in a guide that isn’t already easily findable
hell, I actually wrote two of those, in my old pre-mod days
what I’m saying is
unless there’s a huuuuuge desire for me to just copy/paste the entire homestuck wiki to make it more accessible then I might………… rethink what the goal here is?
I mean…… ideally, I would be able to write this guide without explaining too many basic game mechanics
according to the survey I did a while back, the things people want to know more about the most are
- the ultimate riddle
- the forge
- frog temples
so I think that I might use PART 1 of the guide as….. a chance to elaborate on the stranger and more obscure parts of SBURB? more specifically, to tell you how to determine what they’d be for your session and why they’re important/necessary, or maybe why they might not be
basically, I’d write the guide assuming that everyone using the guide has read homestuck and understands the basics of planets/dream selves/god tiers/sylladexes/etc.
obviously, I could write about all of that stuff, but it would be really sad and painful for me and I hope that no one else would really need it
anyway, PART 2 of the guide is something that I feel would be a lot more useful and needed, and it’d just be a huuuuuuuge template to fill out full info on absolutely every last detail in your session
and I could even……. put in links with all the different terms leading to wiki pages/resources to help explain things to you? that would probably be a good idea, now that I think about it
to answer your question……
the guide is going slowly but surely, and the best thing followers can do to help me right now is continue giving feedback on current ideas and such, and aalso
pretty soon there will be editor/co-writer/beta tester opportunities, but I don’t know how soon, so you might have to wait a little while
anyway, what do you think about all of this? got any advice, questions, or concerns?? reply to this post, or send me an ask! cool!!
