Topic: Kongregate / Has KONG becoming WORSE under the years?

The community aged and might expect different things, and has lost any feelings of novelty it might’ve had.

Kong might seem worse than it used to be, including my opinion, but that’s just how it seems. I’m pretty sure it’s as good as it was. Just bigger.

Topic: Forum Games / [RP] Seraphic Legacy [SIGNUPS AND DISCUSSION] [ALWAYS OPEN]

Name: Hayley Jeff (birth name, actually used last name different)

Gender: Female

Age: 28

Class: Sephirah Seed Host

Appearance: At 5'9", Hayley is a rather tall woman. Her hair isn't black, but it's dyed so, because people insisted it went better with her hairstyle and she can't really care. Her hairstyle is, according to her, simple and practical - straight hair, goes straight down everywhere, cut right above the eyebrows in the front, drops all the way to mid-back in the back. On stage, she usually wears a frilly white dress - with many bands of frills along its entire height, not just one around the hem, no - and a dark blue cloak exuding a luminescent glow from its inner side while being adorned with glowing constellations on the outer side. And sandals. Her casual wear selection is too large to describe, and her underwear selection is, again, simple and practical - she has no way to appreciate lace, so she goes for garments that serve their purpose and grant her comfort - although she has little reason for discomfort.

Personality: While often calm and careful, Hayley couldn't truly be called that kind of person - it's just behavior forced upon her by her life. While she acted in that manner, in speech she's confrontational and somewhat fierce - below the layer of politeness lied a person which was, honestly, kind of a butt. One confident enough to tell the world what she didn't like. The past tense is meaningful here, though.

Skills: She plays stringed instruments good, or, more specifically, both the lyre/harp kind and the guitar kind, and she sings good. She's overall good with sound, since it's a sense she's been forced to rely on rather heavily - her hearing's really good and all. She doesn't have much of a way to be good at anything else - being able to get around a daily life without sight is a skill in itself.

Biography: Hayley's life got interesting a few weeks after she turned 14. That day, she got into a car accident - not of her own fault, her father was driving. She didn't lose her life, but she did lose her sight - due to brain damage, not damage of the eyes themselves. Before that, she was a girl - she did girl things, went to school, went to an extracurricular activity where she practiced with a guitar, that being something she got into when she was even younger. After that, she was a blind girl - unable to see the blackboard, unable to see boys, unable to see fanciful clothing. She didn't break, but rather worked around it - she got into a special school where she could be educated along with other vision-impaired people, and she decided that being free of distractions was a good thing, working towards getting better at music. At school, her new best friend was a shy, secluded girl, victim of another car accident - their relationship became somewhat more distant as she opened up and found other people to be with. After Hayley graduated, she decided to keep playing the cards life dealt her and marketed herself as a performer, made more impressive by her disability. She found she had a natural talent for singing, and could extend her repertoire to other stringed instruments, and she's had a rather successful career in her last nine years. In her spare time, she studied law, although her progress through academia has been slow and generally erratic.

Powers:

- Sephirah Seed: Yesod (Foundation, purple, Moon)

- Angelic Raiment: Midnight

Midnight is a loose garment - a robe of very fine weave, an incredible thread count. It has sleeves and is otherwise just long and plain. When Hayley's feet don't need to touch the ground, Midnight becomes sealed from below, keeping people from seeing what they might want to. Midnight also includes what could be called a veil if it wasn't a bucket-shaped piece of cloth, down to not having holes in it - not that Hayley needs any of these either. A blindfold/headband keeps the veil in place.

So far, I described only the shape and not the color. Intentionally, since the concept of color does not exactly apply to Midnight. The way it interacts with light varies on four axes - absorption, at which point Midnight also absorbs other forms of energy and dissolves matter on contact (matte black at extreme), emission, at which point Midnight is conductive to the wearer's use of magic (bright purple radiance at extreme), reflection, at which point Midnight also reflects other forms of energy and makes matter bounce off (mirror at extreme) and non-interference, at which point Midnight also lets some mundane matter through (invisible at extreme). In regards to that last option, all of the properties also apply to Hayley as long as she's the wearer. The properties can be mixed, both in terms of applying various levels to an area and not being homogenous across the Raiment, although with some degree of exclusivity on the first one. At non-extreme emission/reflection, Midnight can pass for mundane-looking, if weirdly-tailored clothing, and varies in available patterns, to the point where Hayley can use the front of the veil as an expressive face itself.

And from now on, I'll just list abilities with names, because I like the puns.

Foundation: Hayley gets to make forcefields. They're reactive things - localized enchantments, little caches of magic, which stay in place relative to Earth and push away at anything that'd collide with them. They can draw power from ambience, which allows them to support fairly large stationary loads - the main drain on their resources is when they supply or counteract actual kinetic energy. Hayley tends to move through the air by making weak forcefields, each supplied with just enough energy to let her take a step off it and gain upward momentum. The forcefields consume their structural magic when exhausted of their stored power, the sustenance system going first, disappearing completely when overloaded. The fields just ignore air entirely, which is an exploitable weakness.

Lunar Magic: Hayley gets to shape solids. Preferably of the earthy kind, and preferably in a blocky resolution with each block being nearly a meter on each side, but anything can do in a pinch and with enough effort or precision. This can shape fluids, but they don't stay in shape.

Silent Night: An aura-like ability - a rather low-density magic field which stifles movements of gas, the magic not being really strong enough to affect denser matter. It dampens air's vibration, stopping sound and reducing temperature, and slows mixing of gases and whatever else this could cause.

Halt Zone: An extreme of the prior ability, a high-density magic field which stifles movements of whatever's in it. It stops Hayley herself from moving as well, at least indirectly through making the air around her not budge, so it's handy that she doesn't have to breathe. This one has a fairly low radius of just a few meters at most. Hayley doesn't like using the two abilities, since she likes sound and hates to sacrifice it like this.

Bask: Many of the abilities here revolve around replacing Hayley's missing sense. This is the simplest one - it's simply trying to make sense of light absorbed/reflected by Midnight. Turns out that the human invention of having lenses and pupils in their eyes is a result of millions of years of evolution, and using Midnight's surface to sense light is more akin to what insects do, and doesn't mesh too well with Hayley's already-wrong brain. Still, it's something - she's aware of movement, at the very least.

Basking also lets her feel other things, like wind, all the other radiation, and so on. It's a right mess.

Touchsense: So instead she has an aura-like active detection ability. Radiating the briefest pulse of magic in all directions, she gets information back about what it encounters, and this actually forms a decent 3D image of her surroundings that she can understand - even rather far-reaching surroundings. The magic is even somewhat better at penetrating solids than light is. When using a more constant aura ability, Hayley gets to be constantly aware of everything within it - with Silent Night, she knows where all the air within it is, and can recognize what are the surfaces of the non-air areas. And since Hayley still remembers color (she's only been blind half her life, after all), she can even match it to the information received. All this also enhances her hearing as she perceives vibrations of air and not air in another way. It's tiresome to keep all this up, though.

Chirogenesis: Variable-size purple magic constructs the shape of her own scaled-up hands can form around her hands, ranging from being the size of hers hands in surgical gloves to a size where each of her fingers is the thickness of her forearm, or more. The wrists of both her real hands and the constructs remain located close to each other. This might look silly, but it does let her have a bigger punch or whatnot, and serves as Midnight's gloves, letting Hayley feel through them.

Telechirokinesis: ...and then the hand constructs come off and she can move them around at a distance.

Crubick: Hayley's ability to deal with other magic extends a bit further than her natural resistance - thanks to this blank magic. The function of this is solely being magic so that it can interfere with other magic - collide with it, even meld with it to allow Hayley some degree of manipulation of other magic. Hayley's chiral constructs and forcefields are magic by default, so they do all this. It's also a viable information source for Touchsense.

Lucent Beam: Places a magical lens somewhere. It moves to its chosen location in some time, emerging from Hayley and so on and so on I KNOW. Once in place, it can swivel, and when commanded to, it focuses and empowers light passing through it, using its stored energy in less than a second - this however slows it down significantly - while it remains fast, it's nowhere near lightspeed, more like soundspeed. Either way, that generates a hurtful beam. This can also be called Moonblast if it happens to be night. Some of the ability's power is wasted as it bounces off air and gets scattered, making an effect visible to people, marking where the beam is. The light lacks in the green frequencies, so it appears pink to purple.

Eclipse: A bigger version of the above, the lens being many meters across. It's not even actually a lens at that point, since it absorbs light, blotting out the sun from the perspective of those below. Then it rains beams down on people, eventually running out. Placing Eclipse too far away from Hayley is too much effort, so it usually ends up right above her - still at some altitude.

Dazzling Gleam: For when being all fanciful and pretending like atmospheric light is useful for anything isn't practical, this is just a burst of light that does disintegrating magical light things and overloads retinas of humans.

Actory: Via some minor, subconscious psychic activity and observation, Midnight stores behavior patterns/personality elements of other people, picked up from them. This comes in handy should Hayley need to impersonate someone. However, this ability is less of a voluntary effect and more of a defect caused by the status as a Seed Host - and so, her own personality was stored away as well. As a result, when she's not trying to make a conscious effort to act like any one given person (including her original self), she mostly acts like anyone would act - so, basically, keeping the basic set of morals that nearly everyone believes in, and not much else. This reflects her status as the host of Foundation. Some meta-personality/decision center remains, making the decisions like 'what is conscious effort' and 'what to focus on'.

- Soul Armament: Examine Bar

The Examine Bar is a line of variable length, usually below two meters, and all space within usually no more than two centimeters from it. Magic constantly pushes all matter within that space away, analyzing it in the process. The Examine Bar doesn't have anything that can be seen, which suits its owner just fine, but can reflect and/or generate light to look like other objects when needed. Hayley can guide it with her hands and usually uses it as a cane. When she strikes with it, the bar bends with her subconsciousness, developing curves and angles, to make her strikes more effective - guiding itself at weak spots should she be even dimly aware of them et cetera. The bar can change size at will, even becoming small enough that Hayley can tuck it behind her ear, and can technically change shape, although it's not a feature that gets used often. Eh, let's call it. Yes.

The Examine Bar does not need to be held by Hayley, and when it's thin as a string, it can act as a string, letting Hayley play it, its varying length allowing for production of different tones.

I tell Thor “Thanks, I’ll do that.” and proceed to leave for the canteen. Egiool’s going to stay here to keep him company, so it’s fine.
It doesn’t take me long to get there. The so-called canteen is empty – mostly. All the furnishings are still in place – and there’s two other people. One of them is some guy – he’s plainly dressed. The other is someone I already know – Krista. Well, I know her name, we’ve been introduced to each other, but… eh, what do I know.
Well, since Egiool wanted to be proud of me, I guess I can go amuse him, so I walk up to the table Krista is sitting at and sit down next to her.
“Hey. It’s been a while.” I’m allowed to just say true things, right?

Egiool proceeds to keep the aforementioned company, answering Thor’s question.
“.affinitY .metal magic is something I can recognize ,having used it myselF .also ,clawS” Egiool squeezes at air a few times with some of his own. “.based on the sample size of me ,they are a popular choicE”
Egiool then turns to the other people in the pool.
“?introductions ,eH” Egiool doesn’t take a deep breath, but he does a magical equivalent – and begins speaking much more loudly. Speaking, not shouting. “!my name is egiooL ,and it’s pronounced /i//dʒi//uːl/ .maybE ?you want me to scratch that somewherE”

“So you’re Thor, Will’s Entity. I believe I haven’t seen Will yet.” I state – truthfully, as far as I can tell.
Some concluding goes on in my mind.
“Could it be that you only appeared today?” I ask. So Telerius could be getting new people to come here every week, or I just haven’t noticed him, which is also a possibility. There was a lot of new people here, and we got to spend just a few days together – if someone wanted to be secretive, I could’ve missed them. Would they then go on to send an Entity out to talk? Maybe.
An arm rises from the pool and grasps its edge, followed by two more, followed by another two – then, Egiool rises from the not-depths.
“.so you’re also a metal guY .hellO .name’s egiooL .nice to meet yoU” he says, then, after a slight pause, adds “.if you ever want to spar ,feel free to asK”

Aw, her refusal’s disappointing! I’m sure there’s some kind of merit to her words, though. I could pose a risk to her items just by being there, after all – the ceiling at Arcady’s house has some scorch marks from me failing to mind my flame. Yeah, she’s right.
“Oh, okay!” I say. “I imagined that you had a huge beaker over there that we could use as a hot tub. Actually- hold on, I have a brain tissue?”
I try taking a look inside my skull, but it’s dark in there. “That’s not going to work.”
Then my entire head bursts into flame. I barely hear the plop of my hair falling to the ground over the crackling of the fire. After a while, my skull’s exposed, all the wax burnt off, so I take another look. Aside from the wick going through it, it’s empty.
“I think I must’ve accidentally burnt that tissue. Must’ve been one of the one-use paper ones. Good thing, too, I don’t think it’s healthy having these in your brainpan.” I sum up the experience. “So it seems I don’t have a brain, but then-” I take a better look at Lethea to confirm my suspicions “-neither do you! Let’s go bathe somewhere else, then! I mean, this place’s too public, there’s…” No, wait, the two plant people that were here are gone now. “More people could come, we still shouldn’t be bathing here.”

Designation: Takko-24, although that’s just a given ID.
Hardware Specifications: A roughly oblong, rounded-edged but still edged main body several liters in size, with eight tentacles coming out of the side which, as a result, is the bottom. There’s also a metal beak in the midst of them. The tentacles are smooth, not bare-metal segmented – in fact, there’s no bare metal – the polymer outer covering has color-changing properties, and the tentacles have gecko-like structures which allow them to grip well. The main body has two little transparent not-quite-domes housing visual receptors, which can perceive polarized light.
Software Specifications: Somewhat neurotic. Enthusiastic and boisterous about its features, to the point of being slightly paranoid about their safety. Mourns the ink sacs.
Hard Drive Data Store: Memories of swimming in the ocean, eating other animals. Memories of being captured, held in a tank. Growing intelligence. Uploading. Cyberspace. Being uploaded into Takko-24. Release, and very recent memories of all the wonders of the world seen from a new perspective.
Area of Expertise: Learned limb movements. More specifically, as a (somewhat former) octopus, Takko-24 has an affinity for its eight limbs and can be very dexterous with them. This, however, only applies to movements it’s familiar with – simple land movement, swimming, climbing and finer touching/grasping. Anything else it’d have to learn first to execute reliably, with the payoff of being more reliable indeed once learned.

I stand outside the healing pool, observing the Egiool contained within it. He looks like a horror lurking in the shallows. It’s hard to tell whether or not his arms are growing back.
At some point, I hear clicking of something hard but small-surfaced on the floor. After I turn, the source of that sound reveals itself to be a person, a male… an Entity. Humans don’t have claws on their feet, after all. Not usually.

Egiool fires two chains at the stems of two of the nearby huge mushrooms – the mushrooms are close to each other as well, and close to me, but not close to him. Before they latch, he reaches out with several arms and grabs Holly, holding her by as many appropriate places as he can manage, hopefully not hurting her too much with his metal grip.
And then he zips away, Holly in tow, all unused arms fending off the slimes with more airblasting.
“?so ,are you doing anything lateR”

The Black Knight reshapes itself a little, the sword floating through its form until it points at where Holly is or was, forming a spike in the front of what is essentially a several-legged cylinder, then begins galloping towards that place, charging at the slimes to trample them. Gina just looks in my direction and gives me twenty thumbs up. I give her two.

Lilah, using every ounce of strength she can muster in her arm equivalents, lifts the cyborg demon up, it pivoting on its knees, still far from being upright. Making more and more vines propped against its chest, she finally manages to press hard enough for the demon to achieve a kneeling position, then fall on its back. As it does, a flash of white light emits from it, and it suddenly stirs to consciousness. Just a moment too late, though – while it fell short of the sludge stain on the floor, it still got covered with a bunch of it, and then it was faced with its by now well-explored weakness – more lightning bolts.
Explosions hurt based on their strength, but also on how close they are to the target and how much of the target is hit by them – and the sludge covering has the two latter points covered. (pun not intended) The demon’s armor plating doesn’t even seem broken – it was hit rather evenly. Instead, the shockwave penetrated it and made a right mess out of its insides, helped by some of the plating spalling and the lightning shock itself.
And then the demon’s cannon arm blew up, overloaded, sending shrapnel flying in many directions, quite a few of them being the demon’s own. Lilah, actively regenerating at the moment, shrugs them off. The two fairies, with their quick movement and really, really small cross-sections, avoid the metal.
But, in a stroke of bad luck, a sharp-edged chunk of plate embeds itself in Kirb’s own thigh.

Moments later, as the demon finally gives up on trying its best to stay technically alive despite being pulverized, Kirb’s senses are briefly overwhelmed by purple. There’s a sound way too high-pitched for a human to hear – actually, there isn’t. There’s grape sod- nah, that’s not it either.
Actually, the only sense involved is sight. But that’s like 80% of the information he gets, so it’s still pretty good. There’s purple.

Then there’s moderate warmth, wetness, pressure against his back and legs – as he finds himself in the healing pool.

As the orbs approach the cyborg demon, they light up its torso… from below. The demon has jumped, and glides over the orbs on its still-functional wings, right arm raised, ready to swipe. The unexpected angle of attack causes Mel’s needles to miss the demon’s face, instead hitting the place where its face was a moment ago – its chest. The needles stick in the weakened plating, but don’t achieve too much – they’re light projectiles, and the demon doesn’t seem to care about poison too much.

Then, with a flap of its wings, it dives down, heading straight for Lilah. She swings her vines at it, and they wrap high around his arms, close to the shoulder, and around its outstretched wings, tying the two together. The wings stop being functional when wrapped around the demon’s arms, but they don’t really need to be any more functional either. With a loud thump, the metal bucket-head hits Lilah, shortly followed by the rest of the cyborg, then Lilah gets crushed against the floor as the two continue their downward journey, demon on top. It’s deeply uncomfortable, and if Lilah had bones, she would’ve broken many of them, but she probably doesn’t. The good news is, the cyborg’s slammed against the floor as well, the little amount of padding it had not being all that sufficient, so it’s similarly concussed. Small tendrils of the white mist escape from its mouth, nearly unnoticeable compared to its oddly beeping left arm. It’s visibly melted and broken, courtesy of Pho’s repeated electric attacks and having a pretty hot vine wrapped around it, and the demon’s unlikely to aim a shot with it in its current state – but it’s an undeniable fact that it seems to be charging.

The sludge Mel sprayed down is still on the floor. It’s not close to the demon, though, because it is now roughly where Lilah was standing – had the sludge been there, Lilah would’ve ignited it prematurely and that would’ve ended badly.

Yeah, somewhat. The problem with the freedom phase was that unless you wanted to explain it as ‘oh, I found a way to contact another player’, you didn’t have any other players to interact with. Now it’s arguably more possible, so, I don’t know, find a way to discuss recent events or something…

Mel sprays down the mysterious sludge, coating a few square meters of the floor with it. Seems like the beginning of a brainy plan indeed.
The demon begins to breathe out more of that white haze of its. However, that finds itself… not particularly propelled, far from reaching any of the Entities. It does still prove useful – it obscures the demon, so when Pho’s lightning disappears into the haze, he can’t tell just how well that worked. Judging by the audible clang, something fell in there.
A moment later, two thin parallel green beams pierce through the cloud from the inside, leaving a mark in the wall, before sweeping across the room, leaving a superficial mark on Lilah as they sweep across her and missing the other dual Entity entirely. The haze refuses to subsist – man, that demon blows, it’s probably been blowing for the last several seconds!
Lilah is now fired up and ready to whip.

“!not on my watcH” yells Egiool as he throws his remaining Ramjet Balls at the airborne slimes to blow them way away, then he turns back to Holly and her predicament.
“!helpinG” he shouts again, then compresses some more of the surrounding air into four more Ramjet Balls, each taking up two or three arms. Except there isn’t as much air around him at the moment – since there’s a lot of chlorine around him. It gets compressed neatly anyway, even if it takes a bit more effort. With an exclamation of “!awaY”, he leaps closer and punches at the slimes simultaneously, plunging his clenched claws into the slimes past the wrists. Still holding the Ramjet Balls. Which proceed to detonate only then.

Arcady? Oh, it’s Gina.
Yes?
I don’t know what to do!
I inquire without words.
My previous idea was grasping at straws, I’ve got nothing now! What should I do?
Good question. Well, I’ve been looking at the fight for the last however much time it’s been. And before the chlorine cloud obscured them, I could see two more slimes on the other side of this mosh pit. And now I could see beams emerging from behind the cloud, roughly coincident with a sizzle…
Luke’s other Entity must be fighting on the other side over there! I communicate. You’re right, adding to that mess in front of us won’t help, so you should do something there. Brief moment of thought. Block the slimes off!
Gina’s palpably bright mood brightens even more. Got it, and I’ve got just what I need! she communicates, then raises her arms, pointing over the cloud – aside from the lowest pair she’s not using for support, which she places under and ahead of all her other hands. Two pillars of flame erupt from the lower hands, and soon, another huge barrage of wax from all the other hands ensues, immediately catching on fire as it passes through the pillars.
After a moment of that, the silhouette forming over there is quite visible even in the haze.
DAMN, GINA!” bellows the Black Knight, the sword looking small in the hand of his blazing many-ton wax figure. “THESE SLIMES SO PUNY!”
And with that, he lumbers just a single step and topples onto the two slimes, or at least between them and Erubetie, aiming to form a tight seal with the ground if he catches the slimes.

[It picked up the mass that missed Holly and now probably had even more added to it, so it’s pretty big indeed.]

Topic: Kongregate / Are highler levels older accounts more likley to not be banned forever ?

I’ll put it like this myself.

People tend to be people and get older with time. When they join, they should be 13 or more, and they can have attitudes that bring them to being annoying to other people or not. On their way to level 65, they might get banned or not, depending on attitude, and they certainly get older. So, by the time they get to level 65, they’ve more or less proven themselves to not be troublesome, and so the amount of level 65 accounts that gets banned is considerably lower. That throws off the statistics, I’d imagine.

But they should be banned for the same offences – it’s just that it’s more likely that a lower level account is committing them.

I can’t help but feel a little angry about it.
.peeM ?tacticS
We should help Luke’s Entity that’s in there! is the first thing that comes to my mind in this vocal manner.
Egiool sounds – well, not really sounds, we’re not making these – a little angry as well. .no shit ,sherlocK ?anything more specifiC
I don’t know! Get in there and separate them somehow!
.aye ,that’s grand ,good ideA
One upside of the mental conversation is that it goes by much faster than the verbal kind, its statements being more spur-of-the-moment decisions than actually thought-out ones. And that’s what Egiool seems to like. Maybe that’s how he thinks. Either way, thanks to that upside, he barely moved in the time it took us to think of this, and so he still hung in the air – and so he blasts himself right at the slime pile. And Holly. His claws rake against the air, gathering it, compressing it – giving him ammo to blow the slimes away with, that being his simple plan for the foreseeable future.
Gina, meanwhile, produces two things.
One is a jet of high-pressure oil launched from one of her true arms – the uppermost ones. It draws a line from the leftover wax pile from the previous attack to the Black Knight – giving him this much more fuel to build his body with, and getting him closer to the action, so that he may charge in yelling.
The other is several containers made of the thin, brittle, CD-case plastic – filled with pressurized chlorine and pre-launched at pretty high speed at ground right next to the slime pile, to facilitate shattering.
I don’t know if I should be afraid or- actually, I should, definitely. And not show further war movies to beings that can and just indiscriminately have taken ideas from what’s portrayed in them.
Or keep doing so, if it helps them here.
