Hii, me again ♡
so this is going to sound incredibly stupid and inexperienced, but I need y'all's help.
I'm running a supernatural slice of life the first time in my life (the au inuyasha one), and I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I am in love with the idea and the characters and the setting, all of it, but I am at a complete loss for what to do for events, contests, and/or ooc prompts.
Some sites I have been on formerly have done like an ooc bingo event that encouraged different characters to meet through common starter prompts, and the goal was to achieve "bingo". Other sites have utilized "teams" and put different characters in different teams, and each post/thread equals a point. Festivals/Parties/Dances also seem like a popular ic event for characters to get to know each other, and while I would love to do a festival, I want to add some sort of incentive to it.
Like, what kind of reward could I give out besides pixelated prizes? Should I utilize currency, and open a shop to allow players to buy a new attack, unlock a new location, etc? If I did the currency/shop idea, what kind of things could members buy for themselves and their characters?
The site just opened a couple of weeks ago, and I feel like a couple of threads have already introduced characters. I'm wanting to do something that could open the door for a bigger event in the future, or could benefit characters in a bigger way than simply giving them shipping opportunities. It would be neat to make it into an ooc game/contest or something, but I don't have any experience in that sort of area.
