"Had a child" message
« on: February 24, 2014, 09:14:40 AM »
So, if I recall, no one was really a fan on the whole randomly having children thing and having it just show up in the timeline. What if we changed it to "Child entered society" or something along those lines? It makes it clear that this is the first time they've been their own individual, but leaves it up to the players when the child was conceived and their upbringing and how old they are and everything along those lines.
Standing for the creation of interesting things since Year 1, Week 5, Day 4.

Considering the circumstances and the nature of the game, I like it.

We've had this discussion elsewhere before, and it largely ended inconclusive.

I am very much in favor of having a new char 'entering society at date xxx'. The player can choose how old that character is, can add 'already existing' rivalries to his vita...and it would also avoid the 'sex in the morning, childbirth at noon, fully armored warrior at sunset' oddity.

Again, that discussion is a repeat, including those arguments. ;-)
