status circle

Creating ingame status relations

The status circle is a simple exercise to visualize the statusrelations within a group of characters. All players stand in a circle and one by one sits down; the character with the lowest status sits down first and the one with the highest status will sit down last.

The exercise end when only one player is left standing or if a few players are left and it doesnt seem that they will be able to get any further. It is not a problem to have obvious status conflicts in a group, but it often makes sense to work with them later on.

In stead of merely having the ones with the weakest status sitting down, they can sit down behind the one that they feel have the highest status (or at least a strong personal relation to them), thus supporting and enforcing the status of that character.
