The latest entry on the development of Saga of Lucimia is all about group finding tools, and quelle surprise, the developers don’t like them. This should not come as a surprise. It might come as slightly more of a surprise that apparently setting up a tabletop session with your friends is not a difficult endeavor, as anyone who has run a long-term tabletop campaign can attest to the difficulties involved in that, but let’s move on and focus on what Saga of Lucimia actually intends to do to help people find groups.
The current plan is to essentially use taverns as the group finding core, encouraging players to post notices on the boards in the taverns to find groups, then sit in that same tavern waiting for people to join and hopefully being social in the process. How successful this system will actually be remains to be seen, but you can read the full entry or listen to the explanation in an 11-minute monologue just below. (It’s technically a video, but it’s really all audio.)
