    Default Event ideas on a roleplay server

    Firstly, I was unsure where to put this, but I guess this is ultimately the best section.

    Of late, I've really gotten into playing on roleplay servers on Conan Exiles. I've hopped across several servers over time, and many will have player-run RP events, which I have come to realise tend to always be the same. They are essentially always a player will set up a fancy banquet area, invites everyone to come visit, and then everyone is just expected to talk to each other. I just started on a new server that has only just been created, and the first event was exactly this come eat and talk style event. There are no prompts, no interesting hooks, no special occurrences. On multiple occasions, I tried to prompt the player running it into some things which went ignored (such as, I snuck away to snoop around his castle. I accidentally took everything from a chest (the same button on my gamepad was used for crouch and loot all) so I sent him a message letting him know I did that and returned to the box. He then used that info to meta and find where I was, and escort me back to the banquet to resume having casual 'how is the food?' conversation).

    I have decided to try to overcome my fear of public RP, by coming up with my own events. These are the few I have so far.

    1. Competition of Strength
    -Create a pen for fights and supply combatants with equipment to face off against each other. Perhaps include spectator betting

    2. Communal Hunt
    -as a group, the attendees would head out to hunt down the bosses that are usually too difficult for one player.

    3. Storytelling
    -come together around a bonfire to share stories of any kind!

    4. Ritual Feast
    -Rather than the usual fancy banquet, have it be a more primal event dedicated to a god or specific holiday.

    I'm looking for ideas on what else could be used as an event idea. It's okay if you have never played Conan Exiles, I think Conan the Barbarian is at least well known enough to give a bit of an idea of what the setting is like.

    Maybe start small, with variants on the feast? Hire someone as a bard and have them tell stories. Celebrate a political wedding. Get someone in on it (complicated) and have them assassinate the host.

    To devote my life and abilities,
    In defence of the United Nations of Earth,
    To defend the Constitution of Man,
    And to further the universal rights of all sentient life.

    For as long as I shall live.
