  • A system that better rewards activity for groups or individuals who won't end up at the top of a leaderboard. Maybe provide some sort of bonus once certain thresholds are reached, in the form of group points, medals (see below), coins if we still have a worthwhile coin system, perks in other ongoing activities, etc.
Another option is to not make rewards automatic for the group that does the best at certain competitions, but instead use a weighted chance-based draw to determine the victor. To use a common GSAR competition as an example, if Telluria made 16 posts over a week, while Draconis, Samudran and Aeolia made 8 each, the latter three would still would have a 8/(16+8+8+8) = 1/5 chance each of winning the Lighthouse Cup and the Clan Points associated with it, while Telluria, which made the most posts, would have a 2/5 chance. Something like that.

One year later, and I'm still working on A Clash of Kings, hahaha (I set it down for a while). I enjoy seeing where the TV production decided to diverge from the books. On the flip side, I've watched so much Game of Thrones at this point that it's sometimes difficult to avoid imposing impressions of the TV characters onto their written counterparts.
