Same here mostly. Tried it a few times and it was fun for a bit. But much props to the dedicated RPers, you guys are far cooler than me.

Is there something specifically on the Environment side of things that I could keep in mind going forward? I'm always up for suggestions on other socialish places to include in maps besides bars/restaurants, but time/existing assets/lack of ideas often lead to more bars, etc.
Simple, allow us to make social zones in the Foundry. That way the RP community can build whatever they want for sets and invite as many fellow RPers as they want.

For this you would have to allow us to invite as many people as we want to a map (obviously the current limit is 5). Perhaps it could be an option in the Foundry to set a map as a "social zone" in which the limit is raised. And to avoid abuse, setting a map as a social zone automatically disqualifies it for rewards.
The Foundry Roundtable live Wednesdays at 7:30PM EST/4:30PM PST on
Forums are like Sanctuary Districts, complete with Gimmes, Ghosts and Dims.
