Coming up Next: a Forum!

I've noticed that while I get a fair amount of traffic at this blog, a lot of folks don't end up commenting or leaving their mark and thoughts for a variety of reasons, even if they'd like to. And what's worse, it's hard for people interested in the game to communicate with each other! So I thought this would be a good time to introduce a forum. I don't expect it to be very large to start with, but I'm hoping that if enough folks are interested, it could grow into a proper lil community :3

Right now, I'm partway through getting it set up-- I have a host and a domain, and I'm trying to decide between BB software templates right this moment. I've got it narrowed down to either phpBB or SMF, and I'm having a terrible time making up my mind xP But I'm hoping that I might have it set up and ready to go by this weekend!

I'm planning on including a variety of features on the forum: a space for both official and unofficial guides, a Q&A/help forum, a direct line of contact for asking questions of Lith and Lithier (possibly a replacement for the mid-livestream interviews), and general discussion spaces for the game and for other things.

What I'd like to know is: what else would folks be interested in having opened up for the forum? A suggestions/future speculation space? A space for sharing your own stories? For roleplaying? General porn? A space for discussing some other, specific thing? Doctor Who? Anime? Video games? I've been deliberating on what to include, and I suspect that I could just open a subforum now and then for whatever comes up most prevalently, but at the same time, I suspect that opening a forum on a specific subject would encourage more conversations to open up on it. So, what would you like to see? What would you like to talk about? I'll be keeping my eyes open for comments on this post, on the chat to the right, or if you can't use either, you're welcome to email me.

I hope you're all as interested in making a community together as I am! I'd really like to have an open space for discussing the game and everything around it! ^.^
