Freedom of speech is an awesome thing but it takes responsibility and wisdom to correctly express your opinion and knowing when to keep shit locked up in your own dome. Any ten year old kid can tell you to go fuck your mother, that Hitler was right and to kys (kill yourself). Freedom of speech is not meant as a scapegoat to say what ever shitty horrible bullying cancerous thing you want to say, it is intended to keep people being opressed from being unable to express that without censorship. It is meant to help allow the ability to suss out corruption without fear of reprisals. People use freedom of speech as an excuse to be assholes and bullies

RE: EmmahSue's Playlist
By far my favorite HS at TR, I sorely missed you when you stepped down though we never really interacted much personally. You just seemed to be the primary driving force for metaplot and rp fostering and the few times we did interact you were awesome and encouraging.
RE: Let's talk about TS.
@valkyrie there is no reason for staff to define limits beyond the obviois and illegal. Or just do not allow it at all, but when I hear Staffers wanting to police exact metrics of TS? Sounds more like someone is going to be snooping in on my fun times and I will just go play elsewhere.
RE: Open Sheets?
Just full transparancy. TBH even in a PVP game there is no reason there should be an OOC Masq. The only times it really matters is assholes who metagame, guess what, you're not going to stop them from metagaming even if you try and hide every piece of info.
These are in no particular chronological or logical order, just as I remember them. (FYI, I have a shitty memory so... I probably won't remember most of these character names!)
DarkMetal: Rya, didn't play long but had a ton of fun.
The Reach: I think my first character was Miyah? Main was Alicia (Geist) I think I made one more before it closed down but don't remember.
Banner's MUD: I don't remember any character names but I played there for awhile.
Battlestar Pacifica: Can't remember this character either but I played the last three months the game was open.
Shadowrun Denver: Imaki
Sindome MOO: Halli, beefy Native American chick that got into NLM corpsec and had kitty ears as a biomod.
Uhh that game that was formed from TR: Don't remember, but I staffed there for a small time as well until, story short, I made a mistake; disagreed with a policy that was in place by Headwizzes; was trying to keep a Sphere afloat in a time where we had little to 0 leadership; and summarily was let go when I was the one doing most of the work for that Sphere at the time. Fun times!
ShadowRun Denver: Imaki and Chloe
Fallcoast: Anna May (hunter) and Salome (Sin-Eater)
Current: Currently I only play at Tenebrae as Chloe (Bard/Cleric)
And yeah that's what I can remember of my playlist. I know one of these names will get love and or hate by the droves, and I will accept both! If you can guess which you win... nothing cause I'm broke.
RE: Open Sheets?
@admiral You'd assume incorrectly, and you don't have to be a "player" to "create fun for those they interact with". You could be a metagaming fuckwad but if you still created fun you could be considered a "good player" under those criteria, also it's not another player's prerogative to create fun for others, it is a player's prerogative to create fun for themselves with the tools provided in the scene they find themselves in. There are so many different qualifications of a good player that stepping outside the bounds of the direct comparison between the subject and the qualification makes the whole argument mute.
Basically what it comes down to is from what I have found it is much much more enjoyable to not get sideswiped with sudden information. Of course things you are talking about, secrets, quirks, etc. That's all shit that is not normally going to be on a +sheet, that's normally going to be on a +bg or something similar. +sheets primarily only contain statstical information, which some might be spoilery (Allies: Mafia for instance) but they don't tend to give it all away and you can definately still slow release all you like and as my original point was, a GOOD player can go into a scene knowing all your dirty secrets but still react appropritely as if their character had not known these things because of course their character does not know these things until your character reveleas them.
RE: Hello MSBites! Grade your administrators.
@thenomain examples of people that don't care or don't seem to realize the point. Imo this is why we have seen the toxic leak out of hogpit, not because people dont understand what hogpit is for but because they either dont care or are oblivious to how rude they really are. Thats why I am advocating to keeping the system as is, but having actual punishment for people that are not cluing in and taking thier bs where it belongs and just constantly shitposting
RE: Interest check: WH40K Only War
I already have a premise and setting I think would work well for MUSH.
The Icarus, an Apocalypse-class battleship, forever moves forward through unknown space. Its mission, to find worlds useable by the Imperium, quell native species and leave behind a beacon so that its sister ship The Osiris can come along and begin building upon the planet. A crew of just over 1 million with a volunteer regiment of 100 space marines from various legions. A generational ship that has been traveling amongst the warp for two hundred years.
You were born upon this ship, you were trained aboard this ship, and you have conquered worlds in the name of the Imperium while flying the regalia of this ship. Your brothers and sister within the Imperial Guard always by your side.
Bound for a new world, the Icarus navigates the warp when suddenly the Navigator screams out and perishes within his chambers, and the ship goes into red alert as it is swept up within a Warp Storm. The ship is wracked and assaulted, pulled out of the Warp. Heavily damaged it is caught in the gravitational pull of the planet within this system. The Icarus is lost, but the hands aboard thanks to the captain and his heroic fight with the crippled vessel are able to mostly make it to escape pods, equipment is jettisoned low in the atmosphere. You watch through the escape pod window as the Icarus plows through the planet's atmosphere and the last words of the Captain are broadcast before contact is lost "For the glory of the Emperor, Icarus shall conquer one more world with her dying breath!"

RE: NOLA: The Game That Care Forgot
Alright, well thanks for banning me over something that had nothing to do with my actual conduct on the game, nor on a publicly view able part of the boards. Glad to see censorship in full swing, over a disagreement to do with if something is a spirit or not, and then full blown overreaction at attempted contact to discuss things. Enjoy your game I suppose, hopefully you don't censor anyone else.
RE: General Video Game Thread
God of War (PS4) is on Playstation Now and I still love this series a little too much.
Even moreso now that Kratos - and the dev team - have grown the fuck up.
On a side note, does anyone else's body temperature rise when playing really action intense games? I'm talking full on adrenaline flush and sweating. I've only noticed it with this game lately, but it's a strange (and gross) feeling.
Oh yeah, a lot. Sometimes it kinda sucks because I'll end up having to take like an hour break from just playing for 15-20 minutes to calm down.
RE: TS - Danger zone
Whether that's true or not there isn't anything wrong with that. It's already been pointed out different people like different things, and that paints our responses.
Didn't say there was anything wrong with it, I was more just being like 'I don't think you'll be able to get a reasonable discussion with this person because of X'
ETA: There, now it seems less bitchy and more constructive, thanks!
RE: TS - Danger zone
@Rinel I don't think you'll be able to get a reasonable disccusion because @Tinuviel just doesn't like TS, is what I get from most of their quoted answers I see in this thread. And will try and convince anyone they can that you should just not engage in it.
On an aside, FTB in -any- situation, is always awkward for me because then I don't know what has actually transpired and few people tend to want to hammer out the details of what FTB means, it's usually why they are FTB'ing to avoid discussing the things. These days I just end a damn scene, I have something "interrupt" and make my character leave or respond, so that way there is never a FTB, because in real life that's what happens when you can't keep doing the thing you want to be doing, real life interrupts your ass and it feels more immersive to me.
RE: RL Anger
@Admiral said in RL Anger:
@Auspice If it makes you feel better I don't recall you ever telling me anything about your sex life or anyone else ever telling me any such information either.
I think more people know about @Auspice having a sex life from her bitching about someone talking about it than people actually talking about it
RE: RL Anger
@RightMeow Always assume people are going to be at least a little shitty. You're usually right, and when you're wrong it's a pleasant surprise.
This just makes me sad.
It makes me sad too, but when I adopted that practice, both online and off, and learned to cut out the 'lotta shitty' people, boy did I get a lot happier
RE: Health and Wealth and GrownUp Stuff
My pharmacy somehow is out of BOTH my anti anxiety med and my ADD Med. FUCK.
Usually you can get an emergency referral from your pharmacy to another one that does have the medication in stock. You just gotta ask them.
RE: TS - Danger zone
@magee101 Maybe that warrants one of those classy conversations!
How long does a scene need to be before it gets to TS (feel free to include foreplay as part of TS)? What's ideal for you?
Foreplay tends to be part of the TS, the tension between characters, the setting of outfits and scenery. Usually I find the average time is about an hour of lead up depending on how quickly people pose before it gets to TS. sometimes the foreplay is just as fun as the TS itself and it can be two hours.
For example do most of your TS scenes get right to it once the scene begins? Are they the logical followup of a separate scene leading directly to it? Do you ever just start TS at the end of a completely chaste RP?
There have been a few times, namely non-consensual scenes that start out pretty much right from the get-go but it's still usually 2 poses a piece before the actual sex begins to set the situation. I actually tend to get squicked out if someone is just like 'I walk up and start stripping you down' with no real juicy details or build up.
Also bonus question! Do you ever pause in the middle of TS then pick it up at a later time?
Well, sometimes. A lot of times TS gets paused 'in the middle' or FTB'ed, sometimes it resumes where it left off but most of the time it moves on to another scene with new kinks or new situations.
This is truly the classiest thread ever.
Bonus answer; I have a hard time committing to just flirty build up that then FTB, as someone that has always quite enjoyed the exercise of writing erotically a FTB is like a giant cocktease and I am waaay less likely to get into a 1on1 innocent roleplay with someone that has previously FTB'ed the erotic parts of the scene. Yes, I understand some people don't want to go through the erotica but still have the relationship be canon, but then I'm over here like... you want to go from having a sexually charged situation back to some other normal scene? Sorry I'm in this mood now and I either need to go distract myself or find someone that does want erotica.
ETA: On MU* TS scenes tend to last either 1-2 hours and someone isn't jivving and disconnects, or 3-4 hours and then RL happens. On sites like f-list, I've had erotica scenes last 8-10 hours.
RE: TS - Danger zone
( @bored was kinda right when he said this feels like I'm running a survey here)
TS with NPCs or during PrPs. Where do you stand on this? What I'm thinking is PrPs involving one ST and one player but y'all might surprise me.
Admittedly only on Shangrila, but I've definitely ran gangbangs for 1-2 players.
That's not a gangbang.
I assume if it's being run, that means there are NPCs + the 1-2 players, so it is a gangbang.
You are correct.
