Everything Else / Help with laptop
« on: November 01, 2015, 01:52:40 pm »
Hey people, I'm not dead yet.

Okay, so I have a problem with my laptop. It's a lenovo X61, which has a fancy monitor that doubles as a tablet to draw on, with a special pen that comes with the tablet. This has worked very well for years, but... once I upgraded to Windows 10, the pen stopped working. I already tried various wacom newer tablet drivers, believing it's a compatibility issue, but none seem to work. I tried to get help on lenovo's website and their forums, but the forums are dead and the support feature there is a cruel joke (it just keeps linking me to their FAQ after asking me to fill in details about my laptop for ten minutes). I also can't roll back to Windows 7, because the option is missing in the software settings (where it's supposed to be).

So now I'm at my wit's end, and I thought since you're a smart bunch, I thought it couldn't hurt asking you. Even if you don't know, maybe you can point me in the right direction.

It sucks, because this thing costed like a small fortune, so buying a new one is not really something I'm looking forward to. :(

*blows off the dust from the spore creation corner*

So, I found a really nifty engine for making visual novels. I thought it would be a great idea to make a game based on our fanfic galaxy. After all a visual novel is only text and 2D-Art, which some of us are capapable of. If Gec is willing to volunteer, we might even get some custom music too, though there are free music and sound websites on the internet too.

So essentially I made this thread for some kind of brainstorming. I only have a very very vague idea of what I want to do with it. Since I'm a big fan of Mass Effect, I was thinking of a somewhat similar setup where you have to recruit members of different species for your ship over the course of the game. As for the actual goal or the story, well that's still up in the air. Right now I am collecting ideas regarding what the story could be about as well as species that are going to be represented in the game and locations of interest.

Disclaimer: This game will feature the old galaxy exclusively, sometime before the mass ascension, so that nauceans, torpals and vis are still around.

  • Nauceans
  • Mallen
  • Oifan-Umtag
  • Omic
  • Torpals
  • Vis
  • Snepres
  • Anubian
  • Kazea (sp.)
  • Kratair
  • Sombrerons
  • Arackrabee
  • Borark
  • Corvala
  • Auyuelcliads
  • Wexxians
  • Communicants
  • Quillarian
  • Esrever
  • Forthi
  • Giganommoth
  • Gopiaribe
  • Haya
  • Jinnivon
  • Icthian
  • Kangorians
  • Kawenu
  • Lermiun
  • Peskitoriantais
  • Serlan
  • Syrbor
  • Snout
  • Squaalaak
  • Urshan
  • Verfol
  • Yunimius
  • Kratok
  • Nautalid

  • Various Homeworlds, especially:
    • Nauceanica, possibly as the scientifical center of the galaxy
    • Nai, Snepres Homeworld (Deal with it. :3)
    • Mallen Homeworld (I just want a swampy environment somewhere.)
    • Sombreron Homeworld (A place totally obsessed with money.)
  • Beyon
  • The Scion Complex

So yeah, it would be great if you told me what races you'd like to see. You can even mention a species that is already on the list, just so that I can see how popular certain races are. Same goes for places. The only non-homeworld place I remember is Beyon, but there could be some more. Also do not hesitate to make up places you want to see in the game. By the way, places is rather broad and can be anything from an entire planet, a space station or even a single bar.

Storytelling and Roleplaying / Superhero-Themed Mafia Game?
« on: July 04, 2013, 04:53:48 am »
Is anyone up for a new Mafia-Game? I had the idea for a superhero theme, where each role represents a special power. The mafias would be villains, obviously.

Music / Bestest Music Videos
« on: May 28, 2013, 11:47:18 am »
Since there are a few music videos which are pretty awesome sometimes even despite the actual song, I thought I'd make a thread where people can post innovative, inspiring or just flat out awesome music videos.

<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

Please don't post a video here, because you like the song. The video itself should be worth watching. Likewise don't be afraid posting music videos whose actual songs aren't good at all. Nobody will judge you. (Well, I won't.)

Art / The Flash Art Thread!
« on: December 16, 2011, 01:25:09 am »
It was just a matter of time until we get one... unless we already have one. >_>

Here's an older one, which I already posted.
Turtle Rover (Simple animation)

And this is a new one! It's a two player game.
Press start to play. The goal is to kill your opponent as soon as possible, but not before you get the signal. If you shoot before the signal, you fail.
A = Player 1 shoots
L = Player 2 shoots
Space = Reset

Storytelling and Roleplaying / Sburbian Jungle Disc 2
« on: July 24, 2011, 02:04:11 pm »
Act 1: The Beginning

Your name is ALICIA KREMLIN. There are a few remarkable things you notice about today. The birds are chirping and the sun is shining. What more does a fine lass like you want? Of course, you hate outdoors activities so you decide to turn on the computer. With a soft whirring it springs to life and soon you're browsing the web on your magnificent Fenrir browser. Man, whoever uses anything but Fenrir is a lame-o. Out of the corner of your eye, you spot a small brown package. As swift as the wind you run over and your hands make quick work of the packaging. Out of the box you retrieve two DISCS. A SERVER DISC and a CLIENT DISC. You are excited as ever and decide to ask your bestest e-friend if he has received his SBURB DISCS as well. You sure hope so, he promised he'd play it with you. And hopefully you can add your other friends to the fun! You start pestering marineCopilot!

-- tranquilGrammarian [TG] began pestering marineCopilot [MC] at 02:28 --

TG: Hey!
MC: Hey.
TG: How are you man :DD
MC: I'm fine.
MC: Too windy outside.
MC: So I can't test out my new model. :T

TG: Hey so, did you check out your mail today?
TG: Aww, that sucks : ((

MC: Guess I'm stuck at home all day...
MC: Yeah.
MC: Haven't sifted through it though. >_>

TG: Aaaaaand?
TG: Oh

MC: My mother usually do that.
MC: does*

TG: I see.
TG: I'd go look through it
TG: I'll wait up :DD

MC: Mmh, ok.
MC: brb

-- marineCopilot [MC] ceased pestering tranquilGrammarian [TG] at 02:31 --

You go downstairs as you wonder what could have arrived today. Maybe your best friend sent you a letter?

Nah, that's unlikely, why would she if she can send you an e-Mail or just pester you in realtime. There must be something else she wants you to see.

On the couch in the living room lies your mother. She got home from work some time ago and is exhausted. You decide to walk very quietly not to wake her. Finally you are in the main corridor. On a little table next to the door you spot the mail. It mostly consists of newspaper and bills and you sift through it, albeit slowly, so you don't make too much noise. You wouldn't want your mother to catch you snooping through the mail.

After just a few seconds you found it. Two envelopes with one disk each. They're part of a new game you signed up for. It's beta, but your friends talked you into getting it anyway, so you could all play even before it gets released.

You grab the two envelopses and put the rest of the mail back onto the table. Then you quickly sneak back to your room to tell Alicia the news.

You patiently wait for your friend to return.

-- marineCopilot [MC] began pestering tranquilGrammarian [TG] at 03:14 --

MC: Okay.
TG: Well?
MC: I think I found what you meant. :D
TG: Awesome!
MC: I've got two Sburb disks.
MC: Why two anyway?

TG: Alright!
TG: Well, there's a server disk and a client disk, if you look closely.

MC: Ah.
MC: Okay.

TG: Because you're being bored, let's cheer you up!
TG: You can be the client!

MC: Umm, okay.
TG: So you basically just pop the client disk in, and I'll pop in the server disk.
MC: Alright.
TG: Tell me when you're done.
MC: Sure.
MC: It's installing right now.

TG: I'll do the same hold on.
MC: Odd, it doesn't have a setup. :|
TG: It's kind of cool isn't it?
TG: It's all high-techy and ****.

MC: Yeah.
MC: Finally some kind of convenient game.
MC: Without all the hassle other games have.
MC: There, I think it's done.

TG: Mine's nearly done...
MC: At least the flashy images and the weird music stopped.
TG: There we go!
TG: Alright so.

MC: Mmh.
MC: I can't see anything.

TG: I can see you on my screen.
MC: Maybe it crashed?
MC: Wait, what?

TG: Together with a HUD of some sort.
TG: Yeah it's kind of weird.

MC: What do you mean, you see me?
TG: Why are you wearing a hat and goggles? You're inside.
MC: I don't even have a camera on my monitor.
TG: I don't know man. It's pretty weird.
MC: This is creepy. How do you do this. >_>
TG: You're kind of cute :33
MC: Doesn't help.
TG: I know bro, just yanking your chain :DD
MC: >_>
MC: So you mean like... Can you see me waving my hand?
MC: Like this?

TG: Yeah! Hi there :DD
MC: :|
TG: Oh, hold on!
TG: It seems like I have a hand of some sort!
TG: Let me see what it does.
TG: Your bed should be levitating if this is real.

MC: What the!!!
MC: This is crazy.

TG: Hey, this is incredibly fun!
MC: Don't break anything.
MC: My mother will be mad!
MC: How am I going to explain this.

TG: Ok, stop crying like a little baby! I'll put it down!
MC: Well, thanks.
TG: Hey, this is awesome!
MC: Is this some sort of augmented reality thing?
MC: I mean, it looks so real.

TG: Looks like I can actually expand your room.
TG: Let's see...
TG: Just click and drag it says...
TG: Your room should be bigger now :DD

MC: ._.
TG: Hey, this cost grist or something!
MC: Grist?
TG: We don't have a lot of it, it seems.
TG: Yeah, it's like this icon that looks like a fruit gusher.

MC: I can't see any icon, remember.
TG: Well I just explained you how it looks like silly!
TG: Ahh, I see, ok you should have two new things.

MC: :T
TG: Called a captchalogue deck and a strife specibus
MC: So, what's the point of this game again?
MC: Just messing with other people's homes?

TG: Apparently.
TG: Let's just mess around with it to see what happens.
TG: It's probably not real anyway, right?

MC: I don't know.
MC: If it's not, I wouldn't know how to turn it off. D:

TG: Oh.
TG: Uhm.
TG: ****.

MC: What?
TG: Richard.
MC: What did you do?
TG: Don't uhm, freak out.
TG: But I just send your chest flying.
TG: Had it anything valuable in it?

MC: My...chest?
TG: Yeah, the one besides your bed.
MC: Well, for starters, I had all my fish food stored in it.
MC: D:

TG: Well, hold on!
TG: Apparently, according to this I need to put an alchimethingy and stuff in your house.
TG: Did you find your captchalogue deck and strife specibus yet?

MC: But how does that bring back my fish food?
MC: What should I feed my fish with?

TG: Stop crying you big baby :DD
TG: We'll figure it out.

MC: D:
MC: Oh gee.

TG: Wow, I kind of feel like a god now!
MC: Well gee, how am I supposed to know about a captchadeck and strifebus?
TG: Ok, so I checked the guide a bit, and it appears I need to open my Phernalia Registry and put crap in it.
TG: It looks like it's free too.
TG: Uhm, I don't know... Try picking something up or whatever?

MC: You mean like.
TG: Ok Richard, brace yourself, some heavy duty modding coming.
MC: All the stuff you scattered around in your fit of vandalism? :T
MC: D:

TG: For example.
MC: What kind of modding?
TG: And hey! I was just getting to know the controls.
TG: Well if I can't find room, I'll probably throw useless **** away.

MC: Well, I hope you know them by now.
TG: Or maybe make a room larger.
MC: Ok, what was that?
TG: You tell me :33
MC: I think you know what I mean.
MC: I hope for your own good it didn't wake my mother up.

TG: Well I needed room... So...
MC: So?
TG: I did the cheapest thing and removed your toilet, bath and sink.
MC: You...
TG: You might hear some more noise.
MC: I also hope for you that this is indeed some augmented reality stuff...
MC: And I guess that was...?

TG: It has to be right? It's all crazy virtual reality mumbo jumbo.
TG: That would be the 'cruxtruder' dropping in your bathroom.

MC: What's a cruxtruder anyway?
TG: Have I mentioned how large your bathroom is. It really is.
TG: I have no idea. But it's free so it has to be important and hey, it's free!

MC: Do I really want to check it out? :|
TG: You should go check it out.
TG: Check out the cruxtruder Richard.

MC: Well then...
MC: brb

-- marineCopilot [MC] ceased pestering tranquilGrammarian [TG] at 03:34 --

Your reign of terror apparently didn't go over well. He should stop being such a crybaby anyway, it's just a game, no need to panic or anything. While your friend goes check out the cruxtruder and the totem lathe in his bathroom, you decide to expand the dimensions of his room to add the alchemizer and the pre-punched card. You sure as hell don't know what to do, but he's a smart guy, he'll figure it out. Hopefully. Seems like you're all out of grist though.

You go downstairs again to check out the bathroom. Due to the shakings a vase fell from its table and shattered. You pick up the shards which are immediately stored in your unsorted binary tree sylladex. Each shard you pick up immediately is placed as a leaf of another shard in your sylladex based on the alphabet. Since all shards are named the same, they're all placed in row.

You come to the living room, but you don't see your mother anywhere. You figure that this is another evidence that this game is indeed augmented reality as it would be too hard to simulate humans.

You come across a water pistol that has falled from the top of a locker in the corridor. You pick it up but instead of being stored in your sylladex, instead it is moved to your strife specibus as PISTOLKIND.

You decide not to give it too much thought. Maybe Alicia knows about these things.

As you walk into the bathroom you notice it's a lot bigger while also rather empty. Almost all of the sanitary equipment was removed and instead there now are two big devices whose functions escape you.

You walk back to the computer to ask Alicia about those.

-- marineCopilot [MC] began pestering tranquilGrammarian [TG] at 04:32 --

MC: So uh...
MC: What's this stuff in here.
TG: I added crap. I'll explain later.
MC: And what's the other thing in the bathroom, assuming one of them is the cruxtruder.
TG: Apparently, there's a timer.
TG: Yes. The cruxtruder. See, we need to open that bitch up.
MC: A timer counting towards what?
TG: I have no idea, but timers are never good.
MC: Open?
MC: You mean, with the wheel there?
TG: It just says it's mission critical to open the cruxtruder.
TG: I guess, it doesn't say how to open it...
MC: Is it counting down or up?
TG: Go try it out.
MC: Oh gee.
MC: Alright.
MC: brb
TG: I don't know man, just do it.
MC: So... it seems to be jammed or something.
MC: Can't open it.
TG: Hm... How about bruteforcing it?
MC: I have no crowbar with me if that's what you mean.
TG: And with that, I mean dropping **** on it until it opens.
MC: Has that plan ever worked? :I
MC: Well, I guess we have no real alternatives anyway.
TG: Exactly.
TG: Say
MC: Well gee.
TG: Does your mother have any particular attachment to your car?
MC: :|
TG: Or your bathroom for that matter.
MC: Well, considering she's not inside this game anyway I would say, go ahead?
MC: I mean, it can hardly go worse than this.
TG: Alright.
MC: I'll go down and spectate from there.
MC: Should be a blast...
MC: brb
TG: Car crashing in about a minute.

-- marineCopilot [MC] ceased pestering tranquilGrammarian [TG] at 04:37 --

Your friend is no doubt panicking about his mom's car, but it was a clever ruse. The walk-through you're reading states that dropping a heavy basket on it suffices. But you just love watching his scared, little face. As you look around the house, you see nothing that will do however. A decision is quickly made. The car must be dropped. You'll try doing it somewhat gently though. You pick up his mother's car and ram it through the wall. The collision wrecked the car mostly and caused a crapload of bricks to shoot away at high velocity. Luckily, Richard was unharmed considering he jumped behind the door like a worried, little weasel. One of the bricks hit the cap on the cruxtruder, making it fly off, releasing some sort of glowing orb and activating a timer on it. It says 6:13 at first and it appears to be ticking down. You'll have to be quick to get the game objective done in 6 minutes and 10, 9, 8, 7 seconds. You see Richard hurry back up, no doubt screaming for instructions. You are ready for him.

MC: What the hell?!
MC: I thought you'd drop the car, not demolish my house.

TG: Hey man, do you see a place where a car can fit through?
MC: >_>
TG: Besides, it worked, the cap is off.
MC: But...
MC: Oh well.

TG: Ok this is what I need you to do.
TG: Take the card I put in your additional spacing.
TG: Also, you really need a portable computer or something.

MC: I guess.
TG: Ok, now, I need you to go to the cruxtruder and turn the wheel. I'll be waiting.
MC: Okay, got the card.
MC: Now to the cruxtruder.
MC: brb
MC: Back...
MC: So I've got this...
MC: Blue thing.

TG: Ok, do you have the cruxite dowel?
TG: That's a yes.

MC: Yeah, if you call it that. >_>
TG: Go to the totem lathe that I put in your bathroom, and enter the card in the slot.
MC: You mean, the other device?
TG: Then proceed to put the dowel on that thingymabob.
TG: Yes.

MC: Alright.
MC: brb... again
MC: So uh.
MC: It carved the dowel into...
MC: A carved dowel.

TG: A totem.
MC: Yay.
MC: Okay.
MC: Whatever.

TG: Try picking up on the vocabulary.
MC: >_>
TG: Alright, go to the alchimeter and put the totem on it.
MC: It's not my fault all the names are so weird and silly.
TG: I think that should activate something.
TG: Somehow.

MC: What's the alchimeter again?
TG: Please hurry you have 2 minutes left!!!
TG: The big platform thing.
TG: In your room.
TG: I'll go prototype your sprite with whatever you have here.
TG: This plane model will do.

This game is really intense.

As your friend is busy playing around with the blinking sprite thing, you take the totem and place it on the alchemiter. Suddenly, a blue terminal appears on top of the platform. It consists of a screen with a keyboard. The word enter is written above the screen.

Just as you want to step up to inspect it more closely an earthquake puts you off balance, sending you to the ground. As you get up you see red light coming through your window. You quickly run there and see several comets entering the atmosphere and hitting the earth on several locations around your house. You panic and hear a weird noise. As if a vase shattered on the floor, but not quite. You turn around just in time to see the fish bowl with your pet koi in it fall to the ground. The bowl shatters, leaving the fish on the ground flopping helplessly around.

You run over to your pet but there seems to be nothing you can do for him. The sprite, now having a plane model hovering inside its circle comes closer, but you don't give it a thought, but then the fish slips through your hands and right into the sprite. A bright flash of light temporarily blinds you, but when you open your eyes again, you see your koi inside the sprite, with a body of the model plane.

You are shaken awake as another earthquake catches your attention. You want to run to the computer to ask Alicia how many minutes are left, but the sprite blinks faster than usual and seems to point at the terminal. You run over there and see the same timer on the screen as well. 13 seconds. You don't know what happens when the timer runs out, but you can feel how the air is getting hotter due to the comets hitting the ground. From the corner of your eyes you can see a very large one heading right towards your house, but you concentrate on the terminal. It must be the solution. Everything points towards the terminal. Why would you even alchemize it if it didn't have any significance.

You look at the word again. "Enter"
But enter what?

9 seconds.

You enter your name. Nothing.

You enter your last name. Also nothing.

You enter all sorts of combinations of your name, your hometown, the game.

4 seconds.

You start to think.

2 seconds.

You enter enter.

1 second.

You press enter...

... and enter.

Art / 3D Modelling
« on: July 14, 2011, 01:48:19 pm »
I don't think we have a thread for digitally made 3D stuff, so I decided to make one.

Today we made a skull in 3ds max. I made other 3D models before, but this is by far the best I've ever done.

In the background you can see the reference planes we used to get the proportions right.

Spore: Creation Corner / Flisch's race for Kosmosis is... *drumroll*
« on: June 20, 2011, 03:44:11 pm »
Not created yet. :3

But it will. I thought that instead of just creating some creature off the top of my head, I'd go the evolutionary route and let the creature evolve itself. Well, more or less. You'll help define how it will evolve, based on a few parameters. It works like this: Every "generation" I will present five possible evolutions for the current organism we are evolving and you choose one of them. Next turn I'll present five new possible evolutions for that creature, until we reach sapience and I can make it into an actual space-faring species, complete with biological backstory. Let's see how many years decades that'll take.

But onto the first generation:

The earliest multicellular organisms are of course very simple. Here are short descriptions for each of them:

A) This creature is built like a wheel and very slowly moves across the seafloor by rotating its own body. The feet sticking out along the creature's circumference are actually mouthes that consume the bacterial mats that cover the seafloor.

B) This creature feeds on the bacterial mats by gliding over them on a muscular foot. Digestion enzymes dissolve the bacteria and are absorbed through the animal's belly.

C) This animal scraps off the bacteria from the seafloor with its little tentacles at the front ringing the horizontally closing mouth. The four purple patches on its back are its respiratory organs.

D) The tentacles of this animal are actually porous like a sponge and filter tiny microorganisms out of the water. They usually gather around other animals that feed on bacterial mats as those scrape off bacteria from the seafloor.

E) This animal is a semistationary organism. It builds a "knot" in the middle and grows multiple heads, which crawl around on their own feeding off the bacterial mats around it. Once the bacteria have been depleted, the heads break off and grow into knots themselves. The knot dies and is consumed by bacteria. Due to the self-preserving nature of this relationship, a colony of this organism can quickly evolve into a whole forest covering the seafloor.

Choose wisely!

Also stop comparing this to Spore the Game. They're nothing alike, except they are based on the idea of evolution. So cut it out. :I

Art / The art-related-technical-issues thread
« on: April 20, 2011, 04:21:40 am »
So this thread is basically a question-and-answer thread for all art related technical issues, like tablets and photoshop. (Mods might want to pin it. :3)

Of course I didn't make it because I'm such an altruistic person, but because I have a problem with my tablet.

I am using an A4 Odys graphic board (does anyone even know them?) and ever since I changed my OS to Windows 7, the tablet driver refuses to work. I even asked the support but they gave me an "updated" version of the driver, which didn't work either. Did anyone have similar problems with their own tablets, or even just any tips and tricks.

Everything Else / Chakras! :D
« on: November 26, 2010, 01:38:45 pm »
Did you ever want to know which of your chakras are open and which are under active?

Well, now you can take the chakra test to find out!

Incase you are not familiar with the concept, here is an explanation of all the shakras:

1 - Root chakra

The Root chakra is about being physically there and feeling at home in situations. If it is open, you feel grounded, stable and secure. You don't unnecessarily distrust people. You feel present in the here and now and connected to your physical body. You feel you have sufficient territory.

If you tend to be fearful or nervous, your Root chakra is probably under-active. You'd easily feel unwelcome.

If this chakra is over-active, you may be very materialistic and greedy. You're probably obsessed with being secure and resist change.

2 - Sacral chakra

The Sacral chakra is about feeling and sexuality. When it is open, your feelings flow freely, and are expressed without you being over-emotional. You are open to intimacy and you can be passionate and lively. You have no problems dealing with your sexuality.

If you tend to be stiff and unemotional or have a "poker face," the Sacral chakra is under-active. You're not very open to people.

If this chakra is over-active, you tend to be emotional all the time. You'll feel emotionally attached to people and you can be very sexual.

3 - Navel chakra

The Navel chakra is about asserting yourself in a group. When it is open, you feel in control and you have sufficient self esteem.

When the Navel chakra is under-active, you tend to be passive and indecisive. You're probably timid and don't get what you want.

If this chakra is over-active, you are domineering and probably even aggressive.

4 - Heart chakra

The Heart chakra is about love, kindness and affection. When it is open, you are compassionate and friendly, and you work at harmonious relationships.

When your Heart chakra is under-active, you are cold and distant.

If this chakra is over-active, you are suffocating people with your love and your love probably has quite selfish reasons.

5 - Throat chakra

The Throat chakra is about self-expression and talking. When it is open, you have no problems expressing yourself, and you might be doing so as an artist.

When this chakra is under-active, you tend not to speak much, and you probably are introverted and shy. Not speaking the truth may block this chakra.

If this chakra is over-active, you tend to speak too much, usually to domineer and keep people at a distance. You're a bad listener if this is the case.

6 - Third Eye chakra

The Third Eye chakra is about insight and visualization. When it is open, you have a good intuition. You may tend to fantasize.

If it is under-active, you're not very good at thinking for yourself, and you may tend to rely on authorities. You may be rigid in your thinking, relying on beliefs too much. You might even get confused easily.

If this chakra is over-active, you may live in a world of fantasy too much. In excessive cases halucinations are possible.

7 - Crown chakra

The Crown chakra is about wisdom and being one with the world. When this chakra is open, you are unprejudiced and quite aware of the world and yourself.

If it is under-active, you're not very aware of spirituality. You're probably quite rigid in your thinking.

If this chakra is over-active, you are probably intellectualizing things too much. You may be addicted to spirituality and are probably ignoring your bodily needs.

My results:

Root:        under-active        (-38%)
Sacral:      under-active        (-44%)

Storytelling and Roleplaying / Forum Mafia - Game Over - Mafia win!

Other rules changes:
  • No Necromancer - I have honestly no idea how that is ever going to work if people are allowed to talk in the graveyard thread after dieing, so nyeh.
  • Sneak's Ability unlimited - Interestingly, in the original ruleset the Sneak's ability is labeled as limited, but it is never said how often he can use it, so I am simply changing it into unlimited usages, since it's sort of similar to the Taxi Driver's power and that's not limited either. BUT to prevent the ability from getting stale and to bring some strategic consideration into the role, a Sneak is not allowed to hide behind the same target twice per game. I hope that will work out ok. If not, hey, we will learn something new this game.
  • Coroner's ability instant - I don't really know why the Coroner's ability has to wait 2 turns to actually work, and I can't come up with any reasonable explanation, so just to make the role more convenient to play, the investigation is now instant. However, the ability is still limited to 3 uses.
  • Dracula - This is not really a rules change as the vampire is already covered by the original rules, but I like to use this space here to state that this game will definately have a vampire "team". Wether or not there will be a psychopath as well depends on the number of players.
  • Almost no minor roles - I have glanced over the minor roles and quite frankly, I don't realy see the point in most of them, so I basically cut out the majority. The only two roles I can see myself using in the game is Lovers and Follower.

Quote from: Flisch
Oh, I've also made some adjustments for the vampire faction, as I think they are a bit too close to the mafia right now. So I am making two changes.

First: Vampires will not know each other. The exception to this rule is obviously Dracula. He will know the vampires he bites and the victim will also know who Dracula is. However, vampires are not allowed to communicate with other vampires, not even Dracula.

To make up for that, vampires can now convert mafia members too. A bitten mafia no longer wins when the mafia wins but instead when the vampires win, so they turn sides but still communicate with the mafia and influence their decisions.

Well then, all PMs have been sent, so the game starts now.

Day Phase ends in 24 hours. (17:00 my time.)

Please make your votes in bold, so I can see them more easily in your regular conversations. Also you are allowed to change your vote only once each day. You can't edit your posts.

Have fun!

Storytelling and Roleplaying / Graveyard Thread! (PLAYERS STAY AWAY!!!)

Anyone up for some... FORUM MAFIA?!

As there has been quite some time since we last had a decent any Forum Mafia game going on and some other people seem to be incapabable of making one... I have taken this burden upon myself and bring you a fresh new game of Forum Mafia...

Everyone should know the rules. And if not, just look them up, I will stay pretty close to the original ruleset and any departure from it will be announced here.

I will also try to keep this a vanilla game without some fancy schmancy sci-fi setting or what you've got. Everything pretty much back to the basics. :P

After I got this out of the way, you can sign up here. The more the merrier I say and I can do more different roles when we have more people, so don't be shy if you wanna play. Of course, you still have to commit to this game, so don't even think about idling out midway through.

This thread by the way will also become the graveyard thread later on, just to save the electronic rainforests.

Anyway, here is the list of changes, which are all basically just very minor tweaks and adjustments:
  • No Necromancer - I have honestly no idea how that is ever going to work if people are allowed to talk in the graveyard thread after dieing, so nyeh.
  • Sneak's Ability unlimited - Interestingly, in the original ruleset the Sneak's ability is labeled as limited, but it is never said how often he can use it, so I am simply changing it into unlimited usages, since it's sort of similar to the Taxi Driver's power and that's not limited either. BUT to prevent the ability from getting stale and to bring some strategic consideration into the role, a Sneak is not allowed to hide behind the same target twice per game. I hope that will work out ok. If not, hey, we will learn something new this game.
  • Coroner's ability instant - I don't really know why the Coroner's ability has to wait 2 turns to actually work, and I can't come up with any reasonable explanation, so just to make the role more convenient to play, the investigation is now instant.
