Hello there! Nova here. Up top it is likely that you can see the poll, but please read the discussion and even participate before submitting a vote. First and foremost I want this to be a healthy discussion where people can voice their opinions without being reprimanded; so let's be respectful of everyone here. THIS IS NOT A DEBATE.
Now, the subject. Recently i've had a somewhat lengthy talk about the current element/grimoire system and I would like to gather most of everyone's opinions just for good measure. There is no guarantee that what we discuss here will actually change anything with the system, but I currently want to know; --What do you think of the RNG grimoire rolling, as well as the elements being locked behind grim tiers that you may never have access to? Please don't bring up Platinum elements into this case. Just the aspect of Copper - Gold please.
The topic for this discussion started off with my boyfriend displaying some apprehension towards not being able to use Beast Aura ( which was originally a gold tier element before removal ), because it would have been perfect for his character. Now he is struggling to create a character due to being unable to choose an element. Soon the subject shifted, and I am quite curious about how many people have suffered the inability to create a character, or have to change a character concept because they were unable to get lucky with a roll. Normally some would roll first and then create a character around what was available, but I know quite a few rp'ers that have OC's and can only fit certain aspects, so not being able to access a certain element can be limiting. This was the basis for his point of view in saying that it hinders creative muse and such.
Personally I am indifferent when it comes to the rolling system; I think it is a fun little flair, but I understand how it can really strain the creative mind when you force people like that. Together me and my boyfriend have talked about possible future systems BUT I FIRST wanted to get everyone's opinion on the rolling as a whole before trying to come up with a system in the first place. Because its not my opinion or a single person's opinion that matters. If people like it, then obviously it wont change. If Gemini see's fit to keep it despite people's desires then it wont change.
Either way, please reply to this and tell me your opinion of the RNG rolling Grimoire system. Just your opinion on it; Do you like it or no? Why? Please don't tack on any "lets change it to this!" I just want to know if you agree with my boyfriend, or if you are indifferent, or perhaps if you sincerely enjoy it.
Thank you for your time
