I think I'm doing a bit too much taverning, I just had a dream with the group. I was DMing some session and Retech complained about the map not being fit for making a settlement - also he was playing a car and was saying its a way to get past having to do something. The party was in a cave, and were digging to find a glowing in the ceiling of the cave but they decided it was worthless. So the party decided to go to a river.

Anyway, for some reason everybody switched from imagination to roll20 (which is to say photorealistic to grids in my mind) and Retech said he wanted a token, Alg gave him a token but that made me angry because I wanted to give him a massive annoying one.

I changed the map, which was a greyscale height map - the sort that you would find in software like Z-brush. Nothing happened for a long time, everybody complained that they were too far from the river to make a settlement and I said that it was fine because that's how real life works. People were suddenly describing their characters, everybody was fairly average apart from Mather who was playing some character who turned women's heads square, he was saying that he just wanted me to tell everybody that they were occasionally seeing women with square heads but I said that you would need to do the sqaurificaton manually. Retech was looking at Mathers character and it was obviously d&d because Retech criticised Mather for having a high dex which wasn't true to the character. Anyway, Retech said it was a surprise ending and it turned out that they weren't females and he was just removing their penises. I was arguing with Mather that you cannot just do a chain of murders and "say it happens", you would need to do it in game.

People kept arguing about this river, so Archi sent me a reply over steam and I told him no. I don't remember what he said.

The dream felt like it happened in an instant, and I just knew it like a memory.

Retech criticizing me? Since when does that happen?

Also I don't make characters with malevolent habits. It'd be far more like me if it was just turning heads, not turning them square.

Most of the good people avoid it now.

 

But we still have some, like Alg.

On the bright side there were worse people who aren't here anymore. But most people are here for hegemonies, these haven't happened since 2011.

 

Over summer I have been planning to create some rules that act as a catch-all. I was quite hopeful for self-moderated hegemony as the original but it doesn't work if people are actively and knowingly destroying the game.

 

I wouldn't mind moving to another specialist-interest forum, possibly asking some if we would be allowed a subforum.

 

--

 

Non-moderated hegemony won't work if people play to win, especially with some of the current people in the tavern.

Moderated hegemony is not as fun for something like the first.

Actually this is the opposite of correct

 

In so many ways

You're the only one here who still wants one. I've moved onto studying something that requires the technological gibberish I found an outlet for in Hegemony.

What?

 

Doomsavenger, dungeoneal, rocco, dusty, Ross, Grim, RpG, serephurus, Paul, pieiseaten, icu, rob are no longer here, and while some of them continued for a bit on dungeoneering, al lot of them didn't stick around. Rocco, RPG, Sere (recently), Dusty were around doing non-tavern activity.

This is why they're gone, because each successive hegemony had less and less effort put into it by the players.

The people that did want one left.

 

"You are the only" is a poor statement to make in general, it's like the black swan argument. I can think that people would want hegemony.

You're breaking character, Nef.

 

:twss:

 

In all seriousness, a lot of them have left the forums as a whole. I'm pretty sure RPG is the only one on that list that still posts here in any form. While it might actually reasonable to say that some of them preferred Hegemony because that's how this forum got its start, you can't really say that they're gone because there's no more Hegemony.

 

In short, it's not that simple. I'd go into more detail, but this damn kindle keeps autocorrecting everything in the worst possible way.

I have an unspent custom forum rank change, any ideas?

 

Currently liking the idea of Führer

 

 

Alg, have you created a character yet?

 

If you do not understand anything hit me up on steam and I will explain it.

 

Retech, talk to me about the nobility edge - it's most likely not appropriate for a cat without any sort of ridiculous suspension of disbelief. >two humans gave birth to a cat?

 

Mather, send me your character sheet please.

I'm going to be without a computer until next week-ish, so I can't create a character yet. Just doing what amounts to mobile browsing until then. As a result, [bleep] autocorrect and the way it ruins my attempts at coherent posting.

If you can play the session, I can create a basic character with four advances for then and then you can change if you want to.

 

Wizard-Knight like Kaede?

Well if I am understanding correctly, this is in the same world as previous, and there was a cat that founded a house. With vested bloodlines, it is not necessary to be physically related.

He probably has different things in mind as far as worldbuilding is concerned.

 

On that note, tempted to worldbuild for a play-by-post. Worldbuilding is fun.
