Relationship map!
« on: August 26, 2010, 06:41:45 PM »
So DannyK's running a PbP over at, and before the official start asked us a whole bunch of juicy provocative questions, especially about relationships with NPCs and such. Here and there a few people accidentally used the same name and decided they were the same person, or deliberately reincorporated other people's NPCs, and somebody said "Man, we should make a relationship map to keep all this stuff straight."

And one of our players, named Megavzer, actually did!

It was a little too awesome not to share.

Very nice, thanks for sharing. I'm reading the actual recruitment thread right now, and then I hope to follow along by reading the action as the PbP game unfolds.

Yeah, the PbP threads are members-only, so I didn't link, I figured people with forum accounts could hunt it down easily enough of their own.

(That image DannyK put up in the first IC post, though? That's golden too.)

I've been told to link to the game's wiki, which is a bit more openly accessible than the PbP forums, although with the game just starting there's no summaries up yet. The relationship map's a slightly newer version, though, with a few names and purple friendship boxes added.

I wish I could edit my original post and take out the recruitment thread link, but alas, I cannot. However, I also wanted to post again to say that what I've seen of "A Town Called Gaga" so far is awesome! Great stuff on everyone's part. I will keenly keep an eye on this game as it progresses.

I just want to say that, as MC, drawing a relationship map between sessions 2 & 3 (shoulda done it earlier, but man was I trying to master fronts & saying interesting things) has gone a looong way in helping me to create PC-NPC-PC triangles. It's so easy & visual. "This NPC hates the Gunlugger's guts? Okay, then why does she love the Angel?" etc. So easy with the R-Map, so hard without.
