@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?
@Tapewyrm It largely depends on where you play. Good people still exist. I've been on games that were pretty chill. This is not to discount Ghost's experiences, which are wholly valid, but I think we run in different game circles and have had very different experiences.
I concur with Faraday. There are definitely still good people/games out there. For the past year-plus, I've been somewhere that has been amazing, with people who are some of the best people I've ever had the pleasure of playing with/knowing. They're out there. And when you find them? It's worth the rest.
But...and this is an important but...if the Hog Pit ever reopens and the floodgates open, letting the people who haven't had regular targets for a while now back at their old hunting ground, you can pretty much guarantee 10 more years of that behavior being normalized.
Can we just avoid fanning flames? Let others do what they're doing, and we can just do what we're doing without constantly calling back to the rift and categorizing some people as bad/evil? It's the same behavior, but from our side. Now, you're punching at them. You can make good points without doing that. I've seen you do it.
Your points are often valid, but are presented in such an antagonistic manner that they get lost. People just end up reacting to the flames. So no, I don't feel that's constructive from a forum standpoint
I agree with this. There are some good points in what is presented, but they get buried under the antagonism, which is not restricted to just Ghost's posts. This whole thread has been a good representation of the general issue, which is that there's some interesting content and discussion that could happen, if it wasn't overshadowed. I've never thought about the issue of using celebrity PBs or not before and those posting in this thread have made some really good points that have helped me give the matter more consideration. I still don't know where I fall on the issue but it was helpful to read the various stances posed here.
This is a bit of a niche thing and you'll probably only get it if you're into Minecraft and watch Hermitcraft, BUT the creator of Decked Out, TangoTek, came into my twitch stream while I was playing his game! He's basically a celebrity in the Minecraft community and I'm flying so high right now
@reimesu My group had a blast with City of Mist. We used it to emulate a more straight-up superhero game. We did modify things a bit, used 3 themes instead of 4, and they were customized by the player instead of having strict themes. So a player could have "Alien Physiology" as a theme with related tags within it.
We're starting up some Savage Worlds stuff now. I'm running Rifts and another player is going to start up a Savage Worlds Pathfinder campaign. We're pretty psyched.
This is the campaign I'm in right now with my group and it's engaging AF. I've been told we're doing Runelords? But I'm not allowed to look it up because Spoilers!
