    So, I had a question. I know a plot has to have some sort of goal, but does that goal need to be IC, such as getting a new ship, or could it be an OOC goal relating to character development, such as to establish another character as an archenemy or something like that?

    @Nefieslab just in case.

    But as far as I'm aware you can have both ooc and ic goals. Strong character development is a fine goal for a plot, even if it's not aquiring any material assests.

    You can do a plot for IC reasons or for OOC reasons and both are perfectly valid.

    It all depends on what you want.

    If you want to grab a ship for your character to use IC? Then that's a perfect example of a Character plot, or even a Tech plot if it's new technology.

    Equally, if you wanted your character to learn and develop as a fighter and have him do four combat threads then that is a fine character plot as well.

    If in doubt, contact either myself, @Insalius or @Deviant via either site or discord DMs and we can discuss your ideas with you. If you've got an idea already in your head, you're welcome to post it up in the plot section and we'll help you by assessing it and offering guidance if anything needs changing, alright? :D

    I hope this has helped but if you need more, like I said, drop us a line alright? The plot team is super friendly and we're always up to chat :D
