Hail Hydra, Gnomes, Gnomettes and sentient bots.
I have the half-formed idea of creating a little recurring discussion event centered on gnomes, to discuss possibilities for a future after Gnomeregan. Beyond getting gnome characters together the idea would be to have a place to find people for gnome/science-centric RP projects and possibly have a bit of in-character fundraising for your ideas.
For the format I thought about havin a speaker presenting an idea for the future, based on the lessons learned from Gnomeregan and then a chaotic, hopelessly undermoderated, gnomish discussion about it. Topics could be fun stuff like “Trogg-proofing environments”, “Learning from the best - Surpassing the Titans”, “Biological research for a Trogg-free future”, “Reclaiming and improving - Gnomeregan salvage” or “Diplomacy - Making the tall ones believe that reconquering Gnomeregan was their idea all along”… just to pull a few ideas out of hat.
For this project to be worth bothering with I would have to know that there are enough people out there who would not only be interested in sitting in on an event like this, but maybe even holding a presentation at one point.
So… I’m throwing it out there now, so I will remember I had this idea and can know if it makes sense to try it here. It probably won’t be happening in the next weeks, so it might be a bit long-term.
