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.
ppurg pallbearer: Yeah Looonsh should probably get promoted for chasing your rancid ass off the game. lmao

punctuation: Isn't there a policy against revealing who people are? Either way my alias here is as stated, and representative of no other handle. My handle was inspired by the punctuation in that ELM comic.

pinkerdlu: Naw, no such policy exists. But go on with your insane rants. Not sure why you always try to go incognito on various platforms when people recognize your batshit bipolar antics almost instantly.

lefloid: Triste, you're a degenerate fucking libtard. SJWs are the pinnacle of human idiocy and retardation, get your shit in line and the sand out of your cunny/dick (whatever you prefer to have, idc)
Aug 1, 2020 1:41:26 GMT -5
lefloid: And whoever gives a goddamn flying fuck if fantasy races are enslaved, black, stereotypical or whateverthefuck. Go play Winnieh the Poo or someshit if you can't handle something that has existed and has been fun longer than your retarded ideas have existed
