Making events is hard work, and running them is even harder! Many were unaware of the hardships the mod teams faced, until Nivi gave us a behind the scenes peek at how they work!
OTANA MOD NOTE: This is basically exactly how it happens, I'm not even kidding. :|
OTANA: Hey guys! Guys! I HAVE THIS AWESOME IDEA!
P: Alsdfkjasl; NO. You know what happened the last time you had an idea!
OTANA: Shut up, that wasn't my fault. B|
MANA: Classic example of why alcohol and ducks should not mix.
MARI: Hey, the ducks were awesome. Even if Otana did-
OTANA: Ahhahaha yeah, can we just get back to my idea now?
MARI: Hey, if it involves ducks, I'm all for it!
OTANA: [/opens mouth]
OTANA: [/shuts it]
OTANA: MOVING ON. :O
OTANA: So, Jak's been talking to all sorts of people about his last trip to the lower decks, and now all these characters want to go down there again. I say we let them. Good opportunity for trauma!
MANA: Oh sweet! I love trauma!
P: Let's make NPCs to torture, mutilate, and slaughter!
MARI: Already on it, bb~
OTANA: Aaaand event plot is a go! Posts are up! Now we just wait for- OH SWEET BABY MAR, they're tagging the hell out of it! AGH! HELP!
P: Here! I'll take on a few of the responses!
OTANA: My hero. ;-;
MARI: What the hell are they doing? Can't they see that there's nothing important about that thing they're poking? Just move on already!
OTANA: Holy crap, you guys! We screwed up and had the camera in two places at once!
P: AUGH! I'm sorry! I forgot and screwed up because my inbox is flooding and I can't keep up! D:
MANA: Weeee'll just have to sweep this one under the rug. Here. Throw a dying Autobot at them to distract them!
MARI: VICTORY! \o/
OTANA: Damn, now we need to think up suitable punishments for Redd to dole out that are creative and unique and not repeating stuff he's done before.
MANA: Hang on, I'll go get the vodka. That always seems to help.
