We have another article up this time by Slither from the Sindome staff! Ever wondered what a good design loop would be for a game? Thought the mysterious of how stuff got implemented were impossible to comprehend? Well be baffled no longer! One option revealed.
Do you sometimes wish staff would automate shit? Tired of waiting for rooms to be updated or a leadership NPC to do some seemingly easily automated task? Do you envy the elegance of the weather code on most games and wish they would do the same to other functions?
You can read all the design and storytelling articles in the world, but at the end of the day you need to pick your codebase. Will it be softcode MOO, MUSHclient scripting language, a diku derivative, or something else? Well Optional Realities brings in Griatch to discuss the something else option.
Interested in EoE? Do you totally want to know more about their game after they (Jazet & Alaire) started posting here? Well here is an article written by their own hand... finger... they typed it okay.
We have the game I used to staff on joining the ranks! So exciting for me but hopefully a good gaming choice for people looking for a fantasy game. The Sea of Storms isn't an RPI but it has a strong history of RP and has all the staples that we look for in adding a game to our connections page.
Results for the Game Pitch contest are in! Find out who the top 3 were. Think we fucked up? Let us known who your favorite was. Don't care but want to see the submissions, they'll be posted this evening (soon).
Are you to cool to check out Optional Realities? Don't think anyone submitted a game proposal worth looking at? Well aha we've converted our 1st place winner (Usurper by Griatch of the Evennia codebase) into an article to remove all obstacles of viewing it.
That May 2015 game contest is over. You were to cool to participate. That's okay, you're a classy person and you've got important things to do. We understand that. How about we entice you to write a short story instead? 600-2500 words and has to be set in one of the game universes that Optional Realities lists! Same prize structure: 50 USD for 1st, 35 USD for 2nd, and 15 USD for 3rd.

Jeshin: Who is Triste?

grumble: A hater, complaining about haters, who aren't really haters.
Jan 17, 2020 11:30:21 GMT -5
grumble: I mean, there's no hate to it. If a bunch of people come forward with complaints like these, you can't just blame the victims.
Jan 17, 2020 11:31:09 GMT -5
grumble: If, as an effect of being revealed, it drives people away from the game, it's not the truth's fault. The truth is the truth. If you don't like the truth, then change the situation to suit the narrative in your head.

Jeshin: I've noticed there is a habit of dehumanizing this board and people who bring complaints as haters, goblins, toxic, etc etc. Yet there is normally very little dehumanization here of staff or players. Or is there
Jan 17, 2020 11:45:15 GMT -5
grumble: Fucking dehumanize the world. We're all animals and we do dumb shit. There is nothing divine about humanity. That said, we have standards.
