Intro

The Terran Times (TT) is a side website (https://prtcy.com/) created by the worst player of the community (GreekIdiot).

It includes a bot/scraper that "automatically reads" specific pages from the game, the forum and the wiki; then posts on PT's Discord Server as part of an "RP Feed" intended to increase immersion for players. On some things it offers a simple user interface on the site itself, like charts, quick links, etc.

Created to enhance roleplay, not replace it - Wouter Lievens knows about it and has the code. TT is free to use and will always be.

It's also optional to use and there's no "advantage" given to players who choose to use it.

Requests are first reviewed and filtered and then adjusted and posted on the operations thread, here, by the RPC / Admins. Please keep in mind requests are handled on a case by case basis by @GreekIdiot, for the time being, as these features are very new and need proper testing and thorough monitoring.

_

Headlines

Scanning, extracting and posting headlines from national news, here, is TT's main feature.

The following threads are planned to be included in the future:

- WC's news service, here
- Informal news, here
- Battle unseen stories (ABU), here
- Tweets, here
- Ads, where players can bid for random posts in the feed, here

_

Statements

Similar to headlines and configured by the RPC / Admins, here.

For statements to be posted, they need to include the person in bold and the statement in quotes.

If the person in bold also includes the name of the nation (ex. Deltaria), the feed will catch that.

An example, here.

_

Arcs

Arcs are essentially "main stories" that connect multiple posts from multiple players (ex. Badaran Civil War).

Visit https://prtcy.com/arcs/ to browser through the stories.

You can request an arc to start or end, here.

_

Calendar

The calendar fires up every year and includes:

- Rotation of the MSCO's Secretary-General
- Election results for the WC's Security Council (excl. Seat E)
- Additions of military equipment to the Equifund
- Electoral calendar and other statistics every year
- Digest of headlines

To consider the addition of other features and/or organisations to the calendar, you can make suggestions, here.
