Pakhshi Part 2
« on: 22 Jan 2016, 11:46 »

So, I've been mulling it over and wondering what people's thoughts are for a second Pahkshi Conference.

Should it be a peace conference with a wider participation pool?

Should it be more specialised, maybe a Conference on the relationship between Capsuleers and CONCORD/The Empires?

Any and all feedback is appreciated at this early stage, including if you think it should not be run.

IC peace conferences aren't really my thing. But.

There's a lot of cheap talk going around how EVE is a game for masochists. You might be the real deal. Chapeau.

Well someone has to issue some strongly worded non-binding resolutions that resolve nothing at all as belligerents involved casually ignore diplomacy.

Well.I think a capsuleer conference could be a fun idea, but not a peace once again.  If its done it should be very narrowly focused (Drifters, New Tech, or something else timely to the current lore developments), and perhaps done via forum instead of live action except for some limited pieces.

Part of my brief from the PPC last time was to see if CCP were interested in picking the ball up and running with it. CCP let the ball slap them on the side of the head, save for a single reference in a ticker on a movie focused on Omir's arse or something equally more worthy.

That said, I wouldn't want to drop the same sort of investment as last time on Part 2, but I would probably want to be involved to a lesser extent.

Aria'd turn up just for the multicultural crowd and the chance to talk about Serious Things. Also to support Utari.

However, maybe you/we should wait a couple years before doing a full-scale summit again?

I'd probably get involved if someone actually contacted Morwen about it this time around.

Also fwiw, CCP didn't just do a ticker about it, there was a whole video portion of one of the scope reports that mentioned it and even featured Arkon himself.

With the SOCT now being on the Inner Council it's possible that another of these might actually attract some attention, though, given that Matshi Raish may turn out to be a bit of an advocate for capsuleers.

Lagging Behind

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

I think my intention is to look at whether there's interest in making these yearly, bite sized conferences on political issues. I'm getting this in now so any infrastructure like forums/timetabling can get sorted if there's interest. I'm not looking to run this till around June, and only if people want it.

Essencially, I'd like to see if people would like a political version of Seycon, since peace is jsut too big an issue to deal with in one hit, but I'm open to feedback.

I'll second (third? fourth?) the idea of another event but with a more specific focus.

Yeah, I'd definitely be up for a smaller and more focused event, Utari.

I was also mildly discouraged by the complete non-response, but nonetheless a potential refocused event does still interest me.

Maybe we should consider trying to reach out and contact NPC actors beforehand and see if we could gain any attention that way?

Ok, there seems to be enough here to convince me it might be worth while going ahead.

I'd like to propose the following as the topic of interest:

The Relationship Between Capsuleers and CONCORD.

This to me seems specific enough to limit the discussion from far branching topics, such as Drifters/Empires/War Crimes which resulted in heavy Commission Bloat, while still broad enough to allow multiple topics to be discussed. Further, as/when the Society gets officially recognised in public as a member of the Assembly, this will allow us a lore platform to launch from.

Thoughts? Should the topic be trimmed down even more specifically? Something else you think we should explore?

I don't know, the first iteration crashed and burnt due to people meddling OOC. There's little motivation to be the noman amidst a bunch of yesmen.

My entire RP career has coalesced around being 'that guy' to some extent.  If there's a way I can be 'that guy' for this thing, I'll participate - if not, I'll quietly leave it alone, like I do most other big public event things that players organize (I try not to ever just shit something up for the sake of doing so).

This is a forum on steroids tbh. The rate at which content worth reading is being generated could get you pregnant.

People shitting things up is a part and parcel of real life. So long as I'm not getting dragged out of bed at 2am to moderate a channel, what happens happens.
