@vulgarkitten said in MU Things I Love:
Legitimate excitement over an upcoming scene, days in advance. And then being unable to sleep the night before because anticipation!
It was EVERYTHING I was hoping it would be
My kid graduated elementary school today (grade 7) and her artwork won the contest to be on the front of their yearbook. I'm proud and everything, but she's ecstatic beyond all belief and seeing her that happy and proud of herself is the RL thing I love the most.
RIP Christina Grimmie.
Maybe not as big a name as some of the others here, but she was a gamer, a great talent, and a genuinely good person. I will miss her. All people deserve to be safe, full stop. No qualifiers necessary. This is a senseless tragedy.
What makes you say either 'hey I want to RP with this person way more' or 'hey I don't want to actively RP with this person anymore'? Can be IC, can be OOC; just curious about the spectrum.
For me, I've found my breaking point is often centered around pressure to TS. This has happened before and happened again recently to me. Char was in a long term relationship with another character and the other player made some OOC comment about not getting enough TS. Despite their apology when I called them out on it, I found myself liking the player less and less for other things I would have normally ignored and I eventually asked to end the relationship IC. I couldn't get passed the 'I'm not getting enough TS' mentality.
Something that will almost always make me want to RP more with people is probably pretty common, and that's level of interaction in a scene. Are you drawing me into something my character can contribute to? Are you asking questions that they can respond to? Are you physically doing something that they can play off of? Are you handing out plot like it's going out of style? That sort of engagement makes me want to play with that person more!
So! What's your turning point?
We have a 'RL Things I Love' and a 'RL Anger' thread to balance it out. We have a "Random Bitching" thread to discuss what we hate about MUing (all 201 pages of it) so let's have a "MU Things I Love" thread to make things even. I'll start!
MU Thing I Love: When someone does their damndest to make your character unplayable/make it unenjoyable for you to play your character, BUT you still play your character and still LOVE playing your character, and others still play with you and love your character, too.
Vindictive happiness, rising.
What makes YOU go 'yay' when MUing?
@Devrex could just be my newness to TTRPG but I find rolling a new character much harder there than chargen on a MUSH. Most MU chargens handhold the whole way through and you have MU staff to help you out if you're stuck. Whereas with TTRPG (at least the one I'm doing), you have to constantly refer to the rules book and there's So Much Math. Pretty much nothing is automated. You have your DM to help you out, true, but I don't find it nearly as easy.
That said, TTRPG feels 'easier'. I'm not sure if I can quantify that yet. But the actual RP part of it feels like less effort to me, somehow.
Got invited to my very first TTRPG, really excited. Really nervous, too. As the title says, it's Pathfinder for Savage Worlds. Looking for folks who have experience. What are the things you wish you'd known or think a new player should know, to be prepared going into it? Or for TT in general, really. Thanks in advance!
I don't know if anyone else is as concerned about watching their budget these days, but I figured there might be one or two of us out there in this economy, struggling a bit. I figured it could be good to have a thread that watched out for good deals/savings, anything to lighten the economic burden a bit.
Hopefully it's welcome!
DoorDash has a deal going on for anyone with Prime membership (in Canada, at least, I'm not too sure for anywhere else) where you can get an entire year of DoorDash DashPass (free delivery) for free. https://fb.watch/l5MEAP7BDx/
But let's be fair, just that pre-banning of @Ganymede for...what? is enough to make me wonder what other bad decisions are being made. And Macha's logs showed that a) she was being slut-shamed and b) it was a consensual log that she was being shamed for and is still being shamed for.
Pretty sure that the bad decisions aren't the ones being made here.
See, the above is good. It's proof you can point to and go, I believe this supports my conjecture that xyz. But I'm agreeing with @hobos that coming in saying 'I think X is plausible because Y, but I'm not offering any tangible proof of Y' is exactly the thing that this board used to do that was damaging. And that did seem like what @Derp was doing. It was a bit disheartening to see.
Eta: do I think that makes it okay for people to come and do the equivalent of 'nyah nyah, told ya so!'? No. But that's just distraction from the heart of the matter.
