What kind of effect would a hat with +10 Charisma have against a +3 Bastard Sword?


No Charisma in Dark Souls, sadly.

Although, if there was, the Undead Legion helmet should definitely have it. Snazzy AND pracitcal.


Oh.




Any plans for a Halloween story contest?

Apparently the archive is only visible to mods, so I've moved it back to the Lore forums for now. The thread's fate now rests upon the sea of chance and opinion.

As an added bonus there are now two copies of the thread, one of which loops through an invisible forum and points back here. Spoopy.


You could move it to the Stories and Roleplay Forum.


No. Those filthy animals don't deserve this thread.

I still have that game on my N64. Good times, lava-surfing on a Koopa-shell was so fun.

Super Mario 64, Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time, Bomberman 64, Jet Force Gemini, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, the Turok series, Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie, and the various StarWars and other Rarewar games were my childhood. Then, there's the Half-Life games on PC. The late 90s were such a cool era to live in. I lived through and saw the early days of 3D gaming evolve into what it is now. Ocarina of Time, Perfect Dark, Turok 2 and 3, and Half-Life and Aliens versus Predator 2 on PC, really stood out to me as some of the earlier games that were the basis for modernization, especially AvP 2.


Super Mario Bros 3 4 Life!

You always ask that question, why are you obsessed about how I am? If you want to make conversation, you should include a certain subject, like how we work out role-playing.

Yes, RPing is ready for all my threads with activity.



Deltaslug, your RP should have more content to work with, I think. The trick or treating concept is a bit limiting. You do give three examples to work with, though I feel there needs to be a larger basis. Perhaps give an example to start with?


Ty for the feedback.
I'll go ahead and close it.
I'm still a little new to RP. just wanted to do something simple.
I'll leave it to the pros.

loved some of your stories.

Though looking at that thread and this forum ... I think it's safe.

1/4 to 1/3 of the threads are locked, and that's after an event from nearly 2 years ago now?
The forum's pretty much dead besides a few roleplayers.

You should get another 2-3 years out of it, unless the RP/Story forum somehow gets new life or Jmods decide to just close the forum.

An interesting metaphor; but who terrorises the last terrorist? Eats the last cannibal? If you look at things that way, then I'd assume one might end up becoming the monster they sought to destroy. O_o


The last cannibal eats themself (auto-cannibalization). If you can't eat others, eat yourself.

I think your terror metaphor is a bit lacking. A person becomes a terrorist either by having suffered a grievous tragedy (someone close to you harmed, or something taken away from you) and thus they lash out for revenge, the person is manipulated (plenty of cases of an impressionable person being made to do things by another who is very charismatic), the person is simply wanting to cause harm (plenty of people in the world we would consider sociopaths who would kick a puppy for giggles), or it's the only thing they've ever known in their world and thus the only road they can take (thus becoming a rather terrifying self fulfilling cycle).

So the question would have to be who would you terrorize if you were the only person left (or the terrorist was the only person left)?
even then, the answer would be yourself/themself.

Hey guys. Majoring in engineering is rough. Finals in a couple weeks, and then that Thursday I have a surgery. So me popping in here today is probably not an indication of me having more time to post.

There are always cookies to steal.

Hello everyone!


But you've eaten all the cookies you stole from others.
The only cookies left are your own.
so you're just stealing from yourself.


By the way, I was wondering if Cuteness could count as a stat in a RP? It would work in a similar manner to Charm in the Dragon Quest games, and I was thinking of some ways in which it can be used to stall an opponent's attack, hypnotise, recruit allies to your side and so on.

I thought cuteness was always related to goodness and charisma?

If you keep eating so many cookies, you'll become a cookie.
You are what you eat, afterall.

And if you become a cookie, then you create a moral dilemma.
A cookie eating other cookies is confectionery cannibalism.
Clearly confectionery cannibals can't clearly contribute.

Even worse for you, cookies can't dance.

@IceyIce
My suggestion is to just write what comes to you.
You're working off an existing story universe, so much of it is already there for you. In truth it also limits you.

Also, don't be so overly critical of yourself.
It's rare for anyone to think of their own works as "good" or "polished".
You'll always think of something to add later, or think you could have gone a different story path, or add a lick of paint here, or done a different paint stroke there.

You're the writer. You're not being paid for the work and you're not submitting it to an editor or publisher.
So you don't really have to worry about the politics side of it.
You're the one in control. It will be your creativity and passion behind it.

So yeah, you're going with Church's works as a starting point, with the rest of the RS Universe as a backdrop.
Good luck with that.
Should be interesting in the future.


tl;dr - Be bold! Just do it!

Roleplaying may continue. However, it should be noted that cookies have been added to your computer to help you while you wait. Each cookie though requires 2000 bytes.

@Azi
You could try to stage an intervention if you know the 2 well enough.
Or potentially suggest they try couples counseling.

You could always go the soap opera route and casually suggest to her that you've seen him cheating on her. (Either with another woman, using up their stash, or both)

File a complaint with whom runs the trailer park.

Move?

Noise cancelling headphones might be your better bet.

new rp: Quest for the cookies of a 1000 truths

Legends tell of a batch of cookies baked by the gods themselves. Their ingredients would make ambrosia taste bland. Their aroma could make a field of flowers smell like manure. And though eons have passed, the cookies are still as warm as they were when they came out of the divine oven.

Some say there are dark secrets to why the gods hid the cookies away. Others simply believe them to be stories and the true reasons forgotten to time.
Was it because the cookies are cursed? or were they so good that the gods nearly started a war over them? or they might have been used to bait an ancient and terrible monster?

Now, it is the duty of your party to go forth and find this batch of cookies and to discover why they were hidden.

I read on Wikipedia that people who have this condition, of not feeling pain, tend to die younger, as well as not know when they are thirsty, or something like that. So, I'm guessing that, the less pain you feel, the more likely you are to die.

Right, the nerves: destroy your nerves, you can't feel pain. That's interesting to think about for sure. But, I'm just pondering here, but if someone got used to physical suffering, regardless of their natural threshold, it's just peculiar to imagine someone who does not, well, suffer, from suffering. Also, your nervous systems being destroyed from pain, that's badass!

Hm, sometimes, I hold a hot cup of tea, and see how long I can keep my fingertips on the glass, before the heat becomes too much. I noticed I can actually hold it a bit longer as I try, but then, the next time I do it, I have to start all over again.

Anyways, I'm off to bed, thanks for the (rather slow on my part) chat for tonight! Hopefully, the others will be back soon.


I saw a similar news story/video.
One person with this condition, still in his 20s. He had trouble walking because at one point he had hurt his knee or something really really bad. But since he didn't really feel pain, he never knew how bad it was.
I'm not sure just how 'bad' bad was, but we're talking about something along the lines of damaged tendons or muscle or a broken bone. If it had been us, we'd have been on crutches or needed surgery. Him ... it was too late to really do anything about it.

If you guys are looking for something else to stretch your creative juices:

Treasure Trail - Anagrams
Quick find code: 16-17-578-65943631


If you haven't done Treasure Trails in game, there is 1 type of clue that involves anagrams of in game NPCs. (the letters in the clue are scrambled up to give a 'hint' to the NPCs name.)

The devs are looking to add a few new fresh anagram clues.
Details in the thread.

But if you're a little creative (maybe a little more creative than what a few of us already came up with), maybe a chance to have some fun with wording or something.

If you're needing help on where to look for NPC names, you can just go to Runescape Wikia.

No, I only want to finish at least one role-play. Currently, I am not really doing anything. Some days ago, I finished the latest chapter in Dreams' Echoes, my Legend of Zelda fanfic, for no one to read. I am also preparing to write for NaNoWriMo, which starts this November. It's a 30-day novel-writing semi-contest, of which people make their own novel in the month. If you reach 50,000 words by the end of the month, you are declared a winner. This is planned to be my practise of professional writing in my literature, and see where it goes.

I think about six hundred authors have published their work after finishing NaNoWriMo. The so-called contest does not actually have a prize, but it can be like "bonus points" for your project, making it look a bit better if you plan on traditional, agent-based publication, but indeed, also looks better if you prefer to be self-published.

Annie, Annie currently cannot proceed in Titanomachy. A Padawan and a few generic marines do not stand a chance in the current situation.


There are several tropes that could help in this situation. My personal favourite?

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Asspull
Based on a true story.

Speaking of the asspull, I sometimes do that for comical purposes.


literally speaking .. I'm sure a pull like that would be very effective at getting around a few marines.

if she did it to her own character, wouldn't the marines have a WTF reaction?
if she did it to the marines, ........ needless to say the level of 'squick' involved?

but either way, she'd be able to progress.

or would she need to role some sort of check first to make sure that she doesn't rip out her own spine first?

Bah, its never too late.

Most people treat the Lannister's "A Lannister always pays their debts." as the official house motto even though it's more of a saying/unofficial.

and tbh, it fits the house more so than their typical motto.

Age is hardly a gateway towards voting, alcohol, or combat.

For several decades now, technology has made it easier to "vote" on virtually anything. (See reddit). The same technology has simultaneously allowed us to gain all the information we could ever want on it in order to make an informed decision, yet simultaneously make the decision faster than if we were asked "do you want the large combo on your meal?"

For alcohol, "under age drinking" has been around forever. How the local society reacts to younger populations drinking and what sort of stimuli is present (ie: peer pressure, depression, personal curious) to make a person start.

In combat, history is full of militaries using child soldiers. Many children are exposed to the basics of combat in martial arts, boxing, etc. Even the basics of physical training in team sports can reach that level.
In addition, how many youths have a proficiency in fire arms ranging from how to point and shoot all the way up to matching Olympic level athletes, let alone enough to pass basic training? (Read the news for the depressing examples)

Slapping a number on something isn't enough.

When it comes to maturity, we've all probably known some 12 year olds who could handle the world better than most 30, 50, and even 70 year olds.

I never drank due to a mix of family history of alcoholism, I was acutely aware of the cost behind it at a young age and had more important things to waste my money on (video games, beef jerky, Dr pepper), and when I was 7 my dad gave me a sip of non alcoholic beer ..
I immediately spat it out and started crying ... So ..

Yep


I'm sorry Annie, but your party failed on the roll against the Christmas Eve check.
Your party is now forced to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in Deltaslug's Mandatory Holiday Event Extravaganza and Kwanzapalooza.
A sudden Arctic Blizzard and scorching heat wave has also hit all areas of the planet at the same time, so regardless of your location, the only safe place is Deltaslug's Mandatory Holiday Event Extravaganza and Kwanzapalooza.

While in the event, you will be forced to take part in gift exchanges, idle conversations and endure hair pulling criticisms by actors portraying your parents and grandparents, cattle prodded sing alongs to various carols (out of key), and drinking dangerous amounts of non-alcoholic eggnog.

On the start of your turn on December 26th, our party may resume.

For enduring such a horrible ordeal, every member of your party will gain:
+1 in Merriment and Holiday Festival Survival

+1 Candy Cane (a purely cosmetic food item that provides 0 healing and 0 stat benefits)

+1 inventory space in your permanent storage, however you also gain +1 "Present" of a purely cosmetic outfit piece (provides no armor value or status effects) that will occupy that permanent storage space until December 24th of next year as the item will be magically donated for you to the nearest orphanage where you will gain a +0 in morality alignment as the orphans will be uncertain whether to thank or hate you. At which point, you are required to fill the storage slot with yet another "present" of a purely cosmetic nature.

I should also note that Deltaslug's Mandatory Holiday Event Extravaganza and Kwanzapalooza is a death free zone.
In the literal 'spirit' of the founding patron saint of the holiday, any deaths that occur are considered non-canon and thus actually non-fatal.

If a character should die in the course of the event, it merely resets the scenario for ALL party members.

It is suggested that all party members "enjoy" Deltaslug's Mandatory Holiday Event Extravaganza and Kwanzapalooza until December 26th.

Unless ... of course ... you want to spend all eternity here.

And ... it's a cookie free zone.
But we do have plenty of cheese logs, fruit cakes, rice cakes, oatmeal, liver, and soy-hotdogs.

Hello???


Annie called out into the abyss. Before her materialized 3 doors.
One made of solid wood but with engravings from a language long dead.
One made of solid brass but smoother than a pearl.
One that appeared to be a wrought iron gate, covered with centuries of rust.

She leaned in to each door to hear what might be on the other side.
Behind the wooden door, she heard the sound of an eerily familiar voice sobbing and repeating something that sounded like "no cookies"
Behind the brass door, she felt a sudden heat and the faint whiff of chocolate.
Behind the iron gate she heard a voice that sounded dark and sinister, and yet like it wasn't event there. She heard it say "the cookies are mine."

Which path do you take?

@Azi
In anime:
- they are ever present given the target age audience of the anime genre
- anime characters themselves tend to be junior high to high school age, thus their own curiosity about their bodies and how the other human bodies work are in full swing. this in turn does mirror real life.
- the larger her chest, not only the more important her character might be, but the more powerful her character might be. The heroine might not be the largest, but if any enemy comes in with a larger bust size than the heroine, expect the first few meeting to go in the way of the new enemy/rival

I make it a general rule not to date a woman who is more messed up than i am.
I'm not speaking figuratively. That sets a fairly modest bar.
A few women I've met had a laundry list of issues that made me seem "normal".
My usual advice to them is seek professional help.

Oddly only met 1 that tried to use me as a sugar daddy, just without the.
Took me a little while to catch on. Wasn't out that much.
Callled up 1 nite saying she needed 1k for rent money (she had implied before she was ok financially). Nothing about it being a loan or something. Just an outright demand.
And inly after 2 "dates", and her standing me up about 5 times ......... She wonders why i said no and suggested that we weren't working out.

One does not simply take a godly lover. Well, I mean, you could, but they have a tendancy to spend a night and leave (or leave you) with the bastard child. I mean, It's almost as though the gods are above monogamy or child support or something.


Depends actually.
They are sometimes non-biased on gender when it comes to abandoning kids. Goddesses have been known to leave children with their mortal fathers.
Plenty of situations where the god/goddess stayed with their mortal lover/spouse (at least till the mortal died or was elevated to low divinity as well)
Plenty of situations where if the kid was good enough at what they did, the god parent was VERY active in their life. Though it wasn't uncommon for the other parent to be dead by the time the kiddo took off adventuring, saving lives, or whatever it was bronze age cultures did and could master.

I can't recall any story that ends this way. O_o I'm no expert on the matter, however.


Greek mythology has a few good ones.
The parents of Achilles for starters. Zeus wanted to take thetis ... But a prophecy stated any child of thetis would surpass the father. So the gods did the pragmatic thing and married her off to a mortal, peleus king of the myrmidons.


Ariadne, a princess if crete. Dionysos (god of parties and wine) made her his wife.
In most cases of "elevation". It was usually to a low tier godhood and given a very specific role, or made into a constellation (ie when artemis made her very close friend orion into a constellation after his death)

Come now. Children always make great decoys (chew toys?) for the monsters. You can also use them to go and play in the minefields. They'll set off the explosives so you don't have to. There's always the basic cannonfodder mentality.
When in doubt, they make excellent emergency rations for the rest of the party.

Invert the parents (mom the career driven 1 that ignores the family, dad the drunken soccer parent)
the dog is actually the favorite and gets more attention (gets spoiled rotten)
none of the kids have the mix of traits the parents wants (ie: one kid is athletic but enjoys annoying things like polka music and painting with mud)
1 kid is looking to escape at first opportunity, but every attempt to "Escape" gets them stuck back at home
1 kid is actually totally fine with the situation
the grandparent, no one even knows they live there (the grand parent is that sneaky). but this allow the grandparent to act as a deus ex machina towards some of the family problems

The Circle and Templars are cool, but their leadership sucks massively besides maybe the first game.


Eh, you have 2 orders that are forced to work together for the scariest of reasons.
In game, I think they show you scenarios where someone gets possessed by a demon. Bad things happen when mages (the most easily taken over AND providing terrifying outlets for demons to operate thru) get possessed.

The Templars, magically resistant, are trained to specifically hunt and kill mages.
Not an ordained mage?
Not taking the lyrium to dull your mind/magic?
You look like you about to be corrupted?
OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!!!!

The Templars view it as a necessary evil. The wars, the darkspawn, the invasion by the Qunari, they can't just off the Mages because the Mages are a potent weapon.

You've now had generations of this enforced persecution that is justifiably in place.

Of course. I'm not trying to argue that either side shouldn't be that way, or that it doesn't make sense. I'd say it even downplays the possession factor, since a mage possessed by a Pride demon is probably one of the scariest things on the planet.

All I'm saying is that, if you're trying to defeat a threat that's more dangerous than either side, someone like Knight-Commander Meredith makes the situation infinitely more complicated than anyone wants it to be.

We kinda almost had that scenario in Runescape.
Tuska, piggy goddess, muncher of worlds ... eh ... anima ... was en route to Runescape.
First week, players "lost" the daily matches.
Jagex then nerfed the scenario.

(in game explanation would be jagex devs set the bar too high for player participation and there weren't quite enough players on RS, or at least interested in the event, to "beat" Tuska each day. after the nerf, the players ran the table.)

Personally? I wish the event failed; having Tuska crash looked like fun.

Next you'll be saying Elves should be let out of the alienage to live amongst Humans. Or, maker forbid, given rights.


Just because someone isn't a blood mage would not hamper their ability to scheme, connive, extort, and backstab their way into a position of influence.

In fact, it would drive some people to find newer and more clever ways of pulling it off.

Nah, get an enchanted halberd thing that triples as a magic staff and has a bolt launcher that shoots enchanted bolts.
The halberd is enchanted to be featherweight in your hands to allow for maximum usage, but at the point of contact, the poor sap feels the full force of the weapon's true weight.

It was originally intended as a joke article in another thing.
Yes, it is a pun upon several inside jokes of Runescape and RPG's in general.
I sincerely doubt Jagex would want to develop that as a particular miniquest because it would likely violate some of the things they stay away from in game and would open the door to the sort of role play they also actively avoid (though they do joke about it "a little" in game ............................................ ................................................................................................ )

@West
Edaters are omni-present.
I don't play OSRS because I've got too much time invested in the current game mode, I didn't want to start all over, and by the time the OSRS was launched I was maxed and mostly playing for the quests. When OSRS launched, they were then 6 years behind on quest dev.
Yes, they released a number of quests over the last few years. The only ones distinct from RS3 are the "new continent" stuff (though I can argue parallel's to what RS3 released in late '16), Monkey Madness 2, Dragon Slayer 2, and Fossil Island.
Both have some difference in raid instances.
OSRS finally released a quest with a similar premise to RS3's content.
Since I'm not a member on OSRS, I'd have to do A LOT to catch up on levels to play out the stories on OSRS ... and tbh ... I've seen the play thrus on Youtube.

Is this really a religion you would want to join?


Eh, I've known worse.
But at this stage, seems more like an intro to politics than religion.

I have just a question about the stories and such on here.

Are most read? Are genuine replys given? Are people always just mean in this part of the
forums as they are in some of the others?


there is a cycle of defeatism. true, people don't post often. because of that, people think no one uses the forum. because of that, it scares off potential from posting.

Go ahead and post your stories. short. long. doesn't matter.
you may get feedback.
at minimum, it gives you a chance to see how well it would look posted and give you an added chance to edit it.

besides, the forum could use some new posts once in a while

and there are no rules against you posting your stories on multiple sites

@Annie,
I'm quite serious on this one.
I've developed a mix of apathy and disillusionment with Jagex of late.
The threads I'm referring to are in the New Game and Ninja suggestion forums, not this one.
While I initially posted more as a creative outlet than anything else, it has felt like for ages that Jagex doesn't pay attention to the Forums.
A part of me had continued to hope to see some sign, but for the most part, the developers only focus on their own threads they create, or on Reddit.

Yes, I know someone is going to say "ofc that's true", but I had been in denial about it for far too long.
To prevent gravebumps (as well as my own relapses), I'm being pro-active and just going to the Community forum where they have a thread up (run by the Fmods) to do this sort of thing.

As I was mentioning before, while I do agree that this subforum is quite inactive, the difference between here and subforums that are dedicated to suggestions is that this forum is for the forum users' entertainment. The Suggestion forums are intended to suggest ways to actually improve the game.

This forum can continue to exist in some fashion or another.
However, a developer company that seems to ignore their own suggestions forum may as well just take it down.

And as I've stated before, you guys can always go back over some of your own old threads and request that they be locked as well.

If you truly believe that the forum is dead and you don't like gravebumping, then go ahead and lock the threads.

People can't randomly attempt to revive it (or just spam it) if that ability is taken away from them.

Jagex's problem back in 2007 was their initial plan to combat Real World Trading.
Their plan alienated a chunk of the playerbase (primarily the player killers) and they didn't institute any replacement content for them soon enough.
The combat system change back in 2012, along with them finally introducing MTX (the announcement of the combat change coincided with the start of MTX) each gave another group of players a reason to leave.
And in 2013, they released their Old School offshoot.
Tack on the general decline of MMO's ... and you have a pretty handy recipe for a gradual decline in player base for a game that's 17 years old.

I think Transformers Universe flopped for a different reason (likely issues stemming from the agreement with the Transformers parent company).
But you would be correct on the others. Though the Block and Load game is still going on decently it seems.
Funorb and Chronicle are getting their plug pulled soon, along with Runescape Classic.

I do agree with the forums themselves with Jagex being limited on response vs existing social media platforms.
But it still circles back to the main point: if they aren't going to use it, why have it (or at least why have it as "diverse" as they do atm)

you are partially correct about FunOrb.
The last game to be added was 2010. And yes, eventually they stopped using the Java/Flash player. in late 2014 one of the devs snuck in 1 last game and a few minor patches or something. then that was it.
but!!!! there were workarounds to it. I don't have the links, but there were methods for running the games even though Explorer, Firefox, etc didn't support it anymore.
I think one of the "stable" methods required using a 3rd party. As much as I wanted to try to play (or finish out) Armies of Gielinor again (I played the free version thru, never did the Sara or Guthix campaings), I didn't want to chance it.

oh come now.
you know they would score a critical hit on an opponent if:
- they were allergic to peanuts
- they were vegan, thus eating a cricket would force either a moral alignment change or some other status effect
- they had a fear of insects and knowingly eating one (or learning afterwards what was in it) could have an effect
- they just hate eating crickets

I mean, I'm kinda asking about the horse because there's a very good chance you're gonna be losing it fairly early on. If you're super attached, I might be able to keep it around, but that's stretching a bit.


It's because I'm Canadian, isn't it?


Why would it be a problem if you are super nice and polite about it?

Inferi, do not question your decisions. You must make a choice. Then follow that choice no matter where it leads you. No matter how far you must go. No matter how many cookies you must steal back from Annie. Your fate is not written, but created by your own choices and actions. Do not regret them for those decisions are what define you more than anything else.

to be fair, you don't actually "own" it.
A little old lady who has gotten a little too old can't run the farm herself anymore.
so she effectively leases out animal pens to you to grow the animals. she takes a cut of the profits on animals you sell, or has better access to the animal market and you sell her what you raise, and she resells it.

Is a simple yes or no really that difficult?


A-are you cheating on us, Annie?! TELL US IT IS NOT SO!

(I'm joking. I feel I need to clarify this now, since I'm not sure the "messy divorce theme" is obvious)


However it goes, you're going to lose all the cookies in the divorce. And that's going to be the lifelong alimony payment you have to make.

You're forgetting that is true of any game that really hits it off.

Overwatch. Destiny. Pokemon Go.

Even single player games aren't immune.

The popularity will hold until the next big thing comes around or until the developers do something stupid that nerfs or breaks gameplay and most of that community gets so pissed off they bail.

Streamers and Youtubers will continue to show videos/streams of it until the followings/views drop and monetization gets hurt.
