This isn't the first time where good boy Malifaxis gets accused of violating the game's "no rape roleplay" doctrine; nor will it be the last. I remember this cropping up before. He can get away with it though, since it's not really rape if a storyteller does it: it's just a "realistic world response."
I don't know about any of that rape stuff. I've never seen it.
I will say though that the best case you can hope for in game is to avoid storyteller attention as much as possible. The good ones will just watch and applaud your actions, maybe respond to your requests with an 'attaboy' now and then but never actively help you. The bad ones will actively throw the world against you in unreasonable and unjustifiable ways.
I don't call them storytellers anymore. I call them storystoppers.
Not much of a story to be said there, really. I wouldn't call his obsession "rape" per se, just with long dicks that go "all the way through to the womb" and inflicting unwanted pain and the like. The only reason I know about it is because someone I knew had to revoke consent from him when he tried that on her, and for what it's worth, he faded to black on the rest of it. I'm not enlightened in the world of BDSM but I think that straddles the line between consensual and non-consensual RP.
you people over here playing escapist fantasy games with your muscle bound jacked dudes that curb stomp everything in their way going to tell me that you're not going the full distance and imagining having a huge wang too???
sneazy: Started playing with ArmSolo again. Mapping the zones against newer maps and chasm area mostly looks good. If anyone else is using it, I will make a thread and post results. Else, I'll keep doing my own thang.

mehtastic: Hi everyone. Back for a bit to catch up on how things have been and talk about Arm with a less angry and more mellow voice. Hope y'all have been doing well.

mehtastic: Haha. We actually agree more than we disagree, but I'm down to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of multiplaying in general.

thesandlady: Are the days of 250 unique logins a week long gone, or is there a chance Arm could get back to it's old numbers?

mehtastic: thesandlady I think those days are long gone at this point. People will say it's because MUDs in general are on the decline, but there are a few text based games that see slight growth. Arm's problems hold it back from player recruitment and retention.

delerak: arm can get the numbers back up. you need good leaders running clans for one which it seems arm is lacking right now.

mehtastic: Well, that's partly why I said Armageddon can't get back the 250+ weekly logins days that it used to have: because Armageddon lacks good leaders. I would argue that staff actively suppress leadership and don't give players ways to grow into such roles.
