Government Jobs

    Government Jobs

    On Pandora, we like to give all players the opportunity to directly shape the towns and cities. The most straightforward way to do this is to sign your character up for a leadership or government position in any of the hub cities in Pandora.

    Regular Government Jobs

    Each region’s hub city has a number of government jobs that any qualified character can apply for. These use our standard sign-up form, and if there’s a government job you’re interested in that doesn’t seem to exist, PM a member of staff to see if that can be added! Every government job, no matter how minor, can help influence future developments of towns.

    Regular government jobs function the same way non-government jobs do. Once your character is signed up, they have that position permanently, barring any plotting or IC consequences that may occur that would require them to leave that position.

    Leadership Positions

    Every settlement has its own leadership positions. Characters and players in these positions have the most direct influence on shaping future town and city developments, though they should work together with others who work in non-leadership positions for ideas and plots as well.

    In our rules for leadership positions, we handle a region’s city hub differently from other cities, towns, and villages within the region. Leadership positions for non-hub cities will be permanent just like they are with regular government job sign-ups.

    For city hubs, however, the leadership positions are not permanent. Leadership terms last for 9 IC and 9 OOC months. The Pantheon seems to enjoy a variety of leadership when it comes to Pandora's most influential, and something will always happen to prevent a consecutive term from lasting beyond 9 months. After that time period, they cannot reapply for the same leadership position until at least 3 OOC months have passed.

    When a leadership position opens up, an announcement will be made and we’ll accept sign-ups from qualified characters for that position for one week. Once the sign-up period closes, if there are multiple interested characters, we will randomize the result. In Character, you can assume there was an election process (or other appropriate process for that city) and can decide how your character won the position, whether it was through charisma, great ideas, or shady dealings. If no character sign up at that time, the position will be given to a temporary NPC that can be replaced at any time by an interested player/character.
