Played a bit of The Last of Us last night. So far I find it challenging and unsettling. I also cried during the opening scene, so I can tell I’m in for some feels with this game.
When I finish that I think I’ll move onto Persona 5, then look into Until Dawn and Beyond: Two Souls. Then maybe by this time the price will have dropped on Hellblade. That should keep me occupied for a looooong time. So I’ve gone from having nothing to buy, to too many games. THANKS GUYS!
This marmot has smelly marmot farts. The smelly marmot farts may be directed at another marmot during the day. If the marmot who has the smelly farts on them utilizes a role, the Flatulent marmot will know what power was used because the flatulent marmot can recognize his or her own brand. Alternatively, this marmot can choose to not to put smelly marmot farts on anyone. If this choice is taken, and a marmafia attempt to kill this marmot is made during the night, there is a 25% chance that the Flatulent marmot lives through the night because his marmot house was too smelly for the Marmafia to enter. This is a townsmarmot role.
And I know some of these roles may seem a little…squirrely, but I can bearly contain myself from revealing this other potential role (Get it?! Because a Giant Marmot is kind of like a squirrel crossed with a bear!!!):
This marmot is the boss of the Marmfia. And because he or she is somebody’s father, based on my loose understanding of the works of Francis Ford Coppola, he or she must make at least one Dad joke during Marmfia scheming on each night cycle. This is why all the other marmots look up to him or her, and is the source of all his or her powers, so if the Marmfather fails to make a Dad joke during scheming, his or her power does not work. That power is that the Marmfather investigates as a Townsmarmot by some form of Marmot detective. So pretty much the Godfather role if you’re familiar with forum Mafia. But with Marmots. And Dad Jokes.
Also, all dad jokes joked by the Marmfather are required to be read in the rest of the Marmfia’s head in Marlon Brando’s voice. This is done on the honor system.
I’m going to go ahead and disagree with Estild’s disagreement about the RP aspect of things. Firstly, without the RP aspect of things, there would have been 100% fewer marmots in this game, and that’s a loss we can all agree is unacceptable.
Second, when I first started with RP posts I was doing so mainly to keep the thread moving because it felt like it had super stalled out at times.
And third, I dropped hints that I was mafia in my RP posts accidentally. The more you say, the more you reveal, regardless of what you’re saying. I also dropped hints intentionally that were suggestive of a townie kind of feel, but if you really read into my RP posts, you’ll see some slip ups that were super giveaways that I was mafia, both based on timing of post and word usage.
I think that the RP aspect can be both a solid tool to stay alive and also a double edged sword because you may say too much with your grammar. To the former, if what you’re saying is interesting enough, funny enough, or otherwise engaging, people might just choose someone else to lynch over you because they wouldn’t mind seeing what you have to say next. I’m not saying that was the case in this particular scenario, but the idea is sound enough.
This is almost as bare bones basic as it can get. Some of the games I’ve played in or run have been so extremely complex that it’s taken many hours of time to process a game phase due to so many actions and their interactions. I find those kind of games most fun personally because they really allow a lot of creativity with roles and powers, and there is a lot of game theory that goes into the setups you create to determine if it’s a fair/balanced game for all parties to have a chance to win.
Yeah, FFXIV Is one of the few that still manages a subscription model (you can buy mounts and cosmetic outfits as part of microtrans). They’ve actually been growing, pretty cool given that the game was initially doomed. I like XIV because it has a heavy narrative based approach, and I really need a good story in my games (something that GS frequently lacks, honestly).
I hear you… I played FFXI for about 7 years or so, ridiculous grindfest, etc. So, I can only hold FFXIV to the same caliber… but got so burned out when they raised the level cap and instantly started gear inflation AFTER 7 years that it was time to call it quits. Did a stint back in WotLK and Cataclysm, and then came back to Gemstone full time.
