Heh. I just dislike how the only residue of some of these long-running plots is a log of someone's mudsex session.
Oh look. Fantastic ruins. Eerie sounds. Eldritch power seeping from ... oh ... you fucked an aide here. Thought I'd found something new.
I'll admit. I would've given that reaction more credence if you at the very least went over to the arm's logs section and 'read' the log. I mean, I found the scene to be pretty lame as well. But at least I've got data to judge by. You're judging with zero data and proclivity for bias that is considered "cool" on these forums.
lol @ chastising someone for not reading a log you describe as lame and disliking it for the same reasons as you. 'gosh, at least eat the turd before complaining you don't like shit!'
I mean. What kind of plots? The weirdo eldtritch shit? You had one not too long ago, no? Probably six months from now, I'm guessing. That plot somewhat finalized. But shit is going on. I mean you had some pretty cool shit happen to you, how many other people genuinely know about it though?
The lack of a dissemination of 'cool' shit is an issue. But what is the solution? Short of revealing IC info OOCly. Some aspects of what happened to you are still relevant right now to other characters.
Nobody else knows about it. I am not against bringing IC stories OOC to share before the year is up, but not when I know there are people involved who are still alive and it would either harm them or ruin their fun.
I've had two pretty deep storyline runs recently that involved my mundane characters interacting with deep magick stuff. It's quite a bit of fun to have that happen, being the weakest and most ignorant in the room, but also having the most possible to gain from it.
qwerty: and if someone is unexplainably hostile to you for no good reason. Chalk it off to being an asshole and slit their throat

qwerty: All in all, in my observation. OOC relativity comes about cliques, then hostility. As in, players might not care if you offed their previous character. But they might like and include another PC whom they talk to more often ooc.

qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
