Due to some realistic assessments of staffing capabilities and most importantly, my own ability to manage staff, I decided to downsize some of the current NPC things going on. Because of this the Western Continent will be largely axed from the map. I understand that some nations have already invested quite a lot of time and effort into the Western Continent, but they'll be compensated in one way or another.

This is a pretty painful decision, but looking towards the future, it's pretty obvious to me I won't be able to direct everything that's going on. This isn't the type of stuff that can be resolved by adding staff either, because it's primarily due to my capacity becoming inundated with other stuff, and I have to still be able to give direction to each person running these NPCs.

So, the map will change following this phase. Just letting you all know in advance.

That's a shame considering the amount of effort put into it by both the admins and the nations involved there.

Will this change be effective immediately or will this Phase play out?

Don't worry man, I won't let anyone know that the Aronian mob strong-armed you into this.

I take solace in the fact that the administration is attempting to keep things going by cutting back on their workload. That in itself shows a commitment to the game.

I do have one question though. Does the downsizing pertain to the Western Continent only or will there be changes made across the Suikoden world (Katana, Nordeland, the potential Nagarean Theocracy, etc.)? Or is that something we can't know?

He only said the Western Continent, so I think that is all.

I had a feeling that adding the Western Continent would be a handful. I support your decision.

I swear I posted here... What is it with my posts not taking affect anymore! Or is someone going around secretly deleting my posts? Hrm.. this is a conundrum!

Anyways, the Western Continent was the most logical to get rid of, as it's the least invested story wise. And it contained 3 or 4 nations worth of NPC's.

Well, this gives us time to focus on what we already have. So it's not all bad.

Good decision though...better to make sure you're ready, rather than half-ass it.

Hmm, well, whatever you need to do, Vex. Definitely better not to overextend yourself... maybe someday the Western Continent will return.

You mean you aren't his friend?

Personally i'm glad to see some scaling back of the use of NPCs, but it kinda sucks you don't have the time to see all of the stuff you've planned come into being.

I'm like. one of those stupid lazy internet friend things.
every site I've been made a nation leader of kind of died. So, putting me in charge of an NPC nation will spell doom for everyone.
besides I have "work to do" In Harmonia. Like collect dust and spew nonsence in nonsence posts. :)
(i just thought sence mr.admindood had some buddies that got turned into admins for the site, one of those things would happen again, but I guess the gamemaster does what he does)

While this is sad for some, pretty much most people understand why you're doing this.

I'm fine with it, but I think all you need to do is come up with a compensation to the affected nations that should be as good as what was taken away from them.
