  • Now that Pokémon's gone to shit, I've decided to watch some playthroughs of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and it is pretty amazing. I never expected any of those plot twists, man...

    If you know anything about pc gaming, you'd know that Half-Life 2 was a very influential game. However, it was not always the last version we played as a hacker had infiltrated Valve and released the game to the public. All those that downloaded and tried it expressed great disappointment and I think that it was because of this that Valve actually managed to fix the problems with the game and develop a great product. Basically, if we all had the "oh lets not criticize it because its not finished" outlook, we would've probably gotten a shitty game.

    Agree to disagree. I personally don’t have huge problems with the stuff we’ve been shown, but I’m not going to let all this worry be in vain, and I’d like to see the full picture before I decide where money will be going. I’m not saying you can’t criticize it because it’s not the full product, I’m just saying it’s foolish to come to a conclusion about something when all you might have seen were the weakest parts.

    Sure, maybe I’m a naive idiotic child hoping for a miracle, but I’m honestly more excited for other things to the point it’s not going to be a hurricane on my parade if this flops, so I can afford hope.
    As the shuttle makes its way to the hotel, I figured I'd work on my story a little. Right now I'm typing a paragraph about a wooden door, but progress is progress.

    I haven't written in about 6 years outside of a line or two on facebook, once in a blue moon. I recently came back and struggled with the fact that my writing has devolved into a pie of gelatinous scum. I figured the only way is to start over, so every day I force myself to work on one of my stories. I'm hoping I can get good again.
    I know you are watching a movie and all at the moment, so feel free to answer after ya're done. I was a little curious because I've seen a few people saying you keep showing up as being on certain threads while never actually posting in them. Are going around lurking threads or is something else going on here? Again, just out of curiosity.

    Enjoy your movie!
    I'm pretty sure I don't have writer's block. I just can't figure out how to start this damn story I'm working on.

    It starts with a guy inside his house who's trying to write a letter or something. After two hours I'm halfway done with the second paragraph. Maybe I should work on the introduction after I finish everything else.

    I find that a good question to ask yourself is "what do I have to set up for the story"?
    What if a bunch of people got together and replied to a new Introductions thread with the lyrics for a huge, over-the-top Disney musical about RPNation? Just imagine an entire choir singing to you seconds after you post your intro.
    Man I remember when one of the guys around here used to post random questions about our characters every day, such as their favorite animal, their most treasured object, what their voice sounded like - the list goes on.

    If those questions ever showed up on the status feed again, I would get back to answering them in a heartbeat.
    I don't know if any of you have seen the tweet about Comic Sans greatly improving writing and creativity, but somehow it sounds like really compelling advice. I don't know what to think anymore.
    I think it'd be fun to see a roleplay where generous amounts of lore are provided, but it's told from a key character's point of view which all the other characters believe.

    Then as the plot begins to progress it turns out most of the lore is completely fucking wrong. Maybe the character is unreliable for some reason, or the world has changed very drastically somehow.

    It'd be fun for about 10 minutes, then shit would hit the fan I imagine. Players suddenly wouldn't know what they could even trust, hesitation levels would skyrocket and would just general paranoia. Players like me who rely on consistent lore for their character I have no idea how we would react, but I do know some players would just be upset and leave.

    Agreeing with idea, it’s got to be consistent otherwise we’re left with a mutt in terms of inconsistent lore. I would probably leave too since I wouldn’t know what to post about if it’s not true.

    Imagine there's some sort of underground cave society that hasn't been exposed to the sun, the moon, or anything else outside for a very long time. They probably have some way to tell time, otherwise it'd be hard to figure out things like age and anniversaries.

    In addition, people wouldn't greet each other saying 'good morning' or 'good evening' for obvious reasons, so what would they say instead?

    If they’ve survived that long then greetings aren’t challenges. If they’re living together then they are social creatures and have a possible pack mentality.

    The concept of Day and night would be like usual initially. A few generations later and they would either have specific designated times for sleeping or waking. The concept could also, like I said, be entirely nonexistant with you waking up and sleeping whenever you want. everyone with theri own sleeping schedule.

    Things like birthdays didn't exist until some point in the middle ages when royalty began adopting it and then it was copied by lower social classes as well. Counting age is important, and assuming they did it, it might rely on cyclical aspects of the life forms under the caves like plants that only bloom at certain times of the year or animal mating rituals etc...
