    Market Place

    July 18, 2011 by DR. Tourny

    To buy or sell from or to an NPC...

    • Select the appropriate NPC by right clicking. If it doesn't bring up its inventory, right click again.
    • Once in the inventory page, you should see your inventory and the NPC's.
    • If you seek to sell, left click the thing you wish to sell in your own inventory. It will ask you if you are sure. Click again to say yes.
    • If you seek to buy, left click the thing you wish to buy in the NPC's inventory. It will ask you if you are sure. Click again to say yes.

    To see your current balance of money, type /money

    Please note that not all traders will buy and sell everything. I will post a list here as soon as I am finished assigning goods to all of them.

    CAUTION: The prices will not yet change due to placed blocks! ENJOY IT WH…

    Plots: A Reflection

    July 16, 2011 by DR. Tourny

    Plots are a very important part of an RPG. Without a plot, you get something like this:

    • Character 1: So....
    • Character 2: *waits for Character 1 to do something*
    • Character 3: *attempts to start a plot*
    • Character 1 & 2: *ignores him because he's a noob*
    • Naga: (*kicks character 3's actor because he finds him annoying*)
    • Kris: (*goes to edit the wikia*)
    • Wolf: (This is exactly what I'm talking about!)
    • Bly: *uses the Plot Device button and erases everything that just happened that day*
    • Tourny: (Dang it, Bly!)
    • (Etcetera...)

    As I'm sure you can see, not having a plot is often detramental to the RPG experience. You might be thinking that you've RPGed without plots just fine. If so, good for you! Being able to drive a story with pure improvisation takes a lot o…

    In my WBVDKT career, I have seen many plots. Some of the plots failed, and some ran their full course. A big determining factor in the success of a plot is, among other things, the characters.

    Characters are always created to serve a purpose. Some of them, like WBVDKT's own Officer are often referred to as NPCs, and exist solely because without them it would be like Darth Vader flying the Death Star around without Imperial Officers to kill when he's bored. Other characters represent a set of values. Optimus Prime, the famous leader of the Autobots, is a good example. In the beginning of his career, Optimus existed to embody leadership, morality, justice, and coolness (To sell action figures! Yay!). Characters like the Warden are created in …
