So, I am trying to find something and I’m not sure how to make it work. I would like to be able to have players have a single account on the webportal and control multiple characters. Now, I’m going for simple here. Basically just have alt names available from the scene drop down menu rather like scene NPCs, and a simple sheet that doesn’t actually affect any rolls. I’ve been looking at the ability assign staff npcs and have wondered if it’s possible to use that with a little more specificity. My players are used to PBEs and I think it would be easier to teach them to use scenes in the webportal than the MUSH proper (much as I miss MOOing.)
Example: Player A has a captain and a cook and is bouncing between scenes. Currently they would have to the emit command from a ‘player’ character ‘main character’, use different browsers to log in to the web portal, or log in and out of every character.
Is there a simple way around this? I’m probably a decade rusty on my MOO and MUSH coding and am trying to learn Ruby and JS. So there’s a LOT of playing catch up on the code end right now trying to knock the rust off and figure Ares out. We could probably use the Wiki to house the character sheets and just use the emit if the worst comes to the worst, but I’d rather see if there’s a way to specify.
I’m not overly worried about the game mechanics at the moment. It’s all free form. Being able to roll a D anything and just flat add to it is likely enough to handle any disputes, and stats can be added as simple text numbers if I can figure this out.
