The Burned Handler wrote:What is planned to be different in this pregame than previous, beyond the obvious location difference?
This is fairly broad and an overview will be difficult. Key differences include a wider range of character ages, differences in school events, etc.
To clarify: Will there be substantial differences in things like length of pregame, rules for posting, etc.
At this time, nothing specific in those areas is planned. Pregame may run slightly shorter than in past versions, but we suspect V6 Pregame will be generally comparable to V5 Pregame.

The current plan is for V6 Meanwhile to follow the model of V5's, in which case the answer would be yes with a few provisions. You would not be allowed to write characters created by or tied to other characters created by someone else without their permission, would not be allowed to write important public figures without staff permission, and would not be allowed to create surviving classmates of deceased students without staff permission (so you could have a Barry Coleson graduate from the year before or after the V1 kids, but to have one from the same year would need to be okayed by staff).

Our current plan is red and gold (though this, as with all else, is subject to change until Pregame goes live).

Cochise is fairly close to the historic downtown district. The bulk of the locations for pregame will be fictional, but there will be a general Around Town board which can encompass any real locations. We prefer for the iconic pregame locations to be fictional to better distinguish our game from the RL Kingman (specifically because it could get a little creepy to any residents who might find our site otherwise).

We will likely allow handler suggestions for weapons again, and should any be particularly appropriate to BKA, they may be used as such. It will likely just be a general weapon suggestion pool, however; vetting the handler-suggested weapons actually usually amounts to more work than staff crafting the entire list would, and we'd like to keep it as streamlined as possible.

Kinda branching off of this, will the BKA/BDA structure of food and weapons to BKA winners and a scrolly quote for BDA winners stay the same for V6?
At present, that is the plan. If any changes are made, we will notify handlers ASAP.

Will DuckyB be up for 'Sexiest Handler' again for V6?
We love all our handlers equally and find each of you sexy in your own way, unless you're under eighteen because that would be weird.

One thing I've heard mentioned by staff in the past is updating Mr. Danya's Guide To Survival to be more in-line with the modern tone of AT. Will we see the Survival Guide updated in V6?
We hope to update the Survival Guide, as well as several other regulations and documents, though this will be focused on more closely as game launch approaches. It's one of the most outdated portions of the site, however, and is no longer really in line with the tone of the game, so it's a perfect candidate for reworking (especially since there's a new Danya in town).

What about OOC? We're getting pretty close to the ten year date (it's a bit over two months away).

Would this include characters drawn up or mentioned by myself during v1, or likewise in other versions? Also, define "important public figures" - where's the dividing line? Presumably writing the President is out, but otherwise?

If creeping people out is a concern (understandably so) why not just make a fictional city like v2's Denton or v3's Highland Beach? Not that I have any strong objection - I've grown a bit attached to Kingman after all this research I've had to do! Still, it would definitely eliminate the worries about real life residents finding the site and feeling uncomfortable. And relevant to this, with its fictional locations how much is Kingman planned to deviate from its real life counterpart? In a place like Seattle you had more than enough room to make stuff up, but somewhere so much smaller like Kingman is any change would be pretty big/noticeable. Put down something like a shopping mall or whatever and suddenly it's a really different landscape (though there is currently a debate in RL Kingman about building a mall, so).
