This is precisely the business model we are ultimately going for. It is a
crude comparison, but we sometimes use as our 'elevator speech' that we want
to be the 'ebay between storytellers and storywriters'.
Skotos will have flagship games that will not be heavily moderated, but we
will have many of our associates that will be creating may different types
of games, including those that are of fixed duration (recreating a civil
war) or of short duration and high moderation.
We hope that there will ultimately arise stars of storytelling that people
will pay extra for to be able to play in their game.
