That is a good question. I mean, my only concern is that with multiple characters, you lose investment in them, if that makes sense. Like you are less concerned about breaking an egg, when you have another dozen.

I never said I could host three quality games because I doubt my ability to host a single ‘quality’ game, mostly due to the subjective nature of things. That being said, I am sure someone of mild competence, could host three quality games. A lot of these arguments of quality control were used for the implementation of a second game rule, if I remember correctly, and that turned out pretty well. I am not saying everyone and their grandmother should host three games, but I feel everyone should have the opportunity to try. I am really not strongly rooted in this conviction, but I just do not see it as the harbinger of the end times that you frame it as. Sorry if my opinion frustrates you, I’ll make sure to keep it to myself next time.

Helltank, I really do not understand why this has you so riled up. I am a very subpar person, and I feel that if I put myself to it, I could host three games, so I am sure other members of the community can. Regardless, why does one person hosting three games pose such a huge threat? The only problem I can think of is that every now and again, there will be one more dead thread in the forum. Ideally, not before long it would be buried and we would move along.

Yes, I will be parsing a decent amount of the posts in this game. I feel by doing so it creates stronger characters, since the motivations, thoughts, and actions of your character will be your primary focus. However I will not be overly strict about things.

@Jimbo14 Accepted, assuming that despite the joke sign up, you will play seriously

Au long aller, peti fardeau pèse

You hear the voice of the captain over the radio.

“Being alive is often defined by tangible thing such as the autonomous pumping of blood through the veins, or signs of brain activity. The question of what happens when life ceases has been one that has stumped many, and produced many of stories, tales, and wars. Yet why would you wonder so much about what happens after death, if you still have a life worth living?

Sometimes your life lacks overly exciting things, such as pleasant interpersonal relationships, or even worse-so pleasant intrapersonal relationships; Yet it is still a life worth living. Besides, what reason is there to believe that death is a better alternative? Perhaps it is the same, maybe it is worse, not many of us live to tell the story. This is where I can enli-"

A door is heard opening, slowly, and unsteadily you can hear the wood creak as the entrance is turned ajar.

“The door…the door was locked,” a sense of confusion layered with fear can be heard in the man’s voice.

Before he can say anything else, you hear a jingling of keys.

“Who ar-”

A loud thud interrupts the question. A metallic clanging echoes out, keeping an irregular pace, slicing through what would otherwise be silence, apart from the radio static of course. Growing louder, the static that was otherwise went unnoticed is now blended with the clanging to create an oppressive cloak of sound. Through the wall of sound, a sick, cacophony of sick, tearing noises makes your gut wrench. All you can picture is the slow ripping of skin from the flesh…flesh from the bone. This goes on for what feels like hours, but according to the clock in the bedroom, it is only a minute.

The sounds stops. All noise is cutaway by a hard silence,

A brief rustling is heard.

“I am sorry for the inconvenience, I did not realise that I left this on. I suppose you all heard the musings of this old man. Well, as the captain I can make it up for you. Free margaritas are being served for the next hour in the bar. Let us start this vacation right, am I right?”

A single clang, much like the one heard before issues out over the radio before the silence returns.

Welcome aboard the Paradise of the Pacific, one of the newest, and best accommodated cruise ships to traverse the waters!

I have known about that game for over a year, beat it, and I considered it a high quality example of a disappointing, and bleak future for one of my favourite genres. However, all things die, so I do not mind, it had a good run. I could write a few paragraphs outlying my problems with that game as well as the genre of game as a whole, but that is not what you are asking, but from one “low-post count schmuck” to another, I do have something to say.

You are proposing a game, a game that mirrors the locations and plot of an established, non-forum game. In the thread, you state the playerbase must have a knowledge of the game in order to succeed. Now, what is the point of a decision based forum game if it stems directly from an open source material, that all the participants are familiar with? There will be no struggle or strife. When it is all said and done, it would play out as a transcript of an Outlast playthrough. As you may have noticed, that prospect is not particularly exciting to this community from my observation. Based on your other suggestions, it seems originality or creativity could be further developed or improved upon before you make another game.

Do not get me wrong, it is fine to have closely related source material, but you need to learn what translates well, and how so. That is something, which you may not get naturally, but by lurking and participating in games, you should be able to improve. I am not a fan of FNAF, but you can take the general premise, break it down, and rebuild it into a game that is more of your own creation.

Let us look at some of the elements of the game:
-Enclosed space
-Haunting setting
-A violent, sentient being that is normally not sentient or violent, creating an ironic and uncomfortable antagonist

Now let us take these elements, and perhaps see how they could be spun to create a game based off of something you really like, but is more unique and open enough that it could translate to a forum game.

You are the drawbridge operator in a small town located in Somewhereville, Wherevertheplace. You took the job in order to get the spare money you need to fix your car, which well it works, but it has a couple small leaks, and sometimes won’t start. You have worked here for about a week, and normally it isn’t too busy despite being the only bridge into, or out of the town. The main river runs underneath the bridge, but not too many recreational boaters inhabit it, as it was primarily a commercial zone, but ever since the recession, it has been almost completely empty. One day, a quiet morning, much like any other, a heavy fog rests upon the town. Not quite abnormal, as much as it was oppressive. You always remember fog being a factor, but never anything this bad. Things begin to become peculiar as the fog lasts long beyond morning. Before you know it, your shift is up.

As you begin to exit the small, bridge-side cubicle, you notice a large group of townsman running away from something. You cannot see what it is that is chasing them, but you can hear it. Loud stomps, and vicious snarls, the tearing of sinew and flesh all resonates in your ears, melding with their screams for help. You however, have a choice. You can rush in, and raise the bridge so that whatever is chasing them cannot cross the bridge, or you can leave the bridge down and try to drive away.

This is just a sample entry of what could be a still somewhat generic, and simple game, that is still a tad bit captivating and thought provoking. Should the player endanger many people to ensure their safety, or should they give everyone a fair chance? What if they keep the bridge down, and there car does not start? A CYOP should be a game that offers a variety of choices, all with reasonable motivations. Sorry if this was a tad lengthy, I just wanted to share what shreds of knowledge I have accumulated over the years.

Goran Galanos

The wind howls as the cold wind cuts against exposed skin like a sharp knife, lightly yet oppressively slashing against my face. The sooner I could make this delivery, the better. At least my horse gets a somewhat cozy stable to wait in. Quickly, I rush about the area, looking for a place of interest. I have been to many towns many of times, however being this far North is a first for me. Peering off, I see a gathering of people. I am sure one of them can point me towards where I should be delivering all of this mail. Hell, perhaps one of them could be a recipient.

Quick on my feet, I move towards the outside of the group. It seems that they are grabbing flyers for some sort of event most likely. Well, while I am here, I might as well grab one and take a glance. Picking up a flyer, I stow it away in my back pocket without much of a glance. Doing my best to talk loudly, yet clearly, “Excuse me, I am a courier employed by the Empire, does anyone here know where someone in this town would go to deliver, and subsequently acquire mail?”

Hopefully I can elicit a knowledgeable response from at least one soul in this crowd. Perhaps the stout soldier wielding the axe could point me in the right direction. Regardless, I just hope I am not sent on a wild goose chase through these harsh conditions.

Name: Goran Galanos
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Alignment: Empire
Starting Town: Frost Front
Weapon of Choice: None
Equipment:
Knife -A medium sized kitchen knife. Good for cutting meat, and vegetables. Not particularly threatening in battle, but could be used in a pinch.
Satchel -A leather bag full of mail

Appearance: Not particularly tall, being 5’8, he weighs rather little as well, being quite skinny. Not unhealthily so, just not likely to fare well in a fight based off of his looks. He has tanned skin, and a clean complexion. His face has grown significant stubble due to his travels, and has messy, black hair.

He is wearing a pair of khaki trousers, tucked into his boots. A burgundy shirt, with a white kerchief tied around his neck, made of cotton is draped upon his upper body, and due to the weather, he is wearing a large, tan overcoat made from wool. It ends just before his boots, being of leather construction, and about knee high. His leather, fingerless gloves are of the same, dark brown color as his boots.

Biography: Born twenty years ago, it was a blessing and a tragedy. His mother died during childbirth. His seven older siblings often blamed him for her death. His father, being an alcoholic was mostly indifferent to the situation, often spending most of his days out drinking. Naturally, due to the poor housing situation, it was only rational that he spent most of his time outside of the home. He developed a liking for the outdoors, and would often spend days at a time outside of the home. This lead to a progression in his cooking ability.

Despite his tendency to stay away from people for extended periods of time, he was always quite sociable. This sociability, combined with a string of small favors allowed him to acquire his first source of employment at the age of seventeen. This employment was a government job, serving as a mail runner. It is his job that brought him out to the Frost Front, to make a few deliveries for the soldiers stationed there.

[If I need any of the things I left blank, I will happily and quickly fill them in. If I must have a weapon of choice, I would wish for it to be a sling, however if I can leave it empty, that would be my preference. Naturally, if I need another weapon, I would also wish for that to be a sling. If I need a magically imbued artifact, I would like it to be a silver necklace, that lets the wearer link minds with the previous wearer.]

Just because it is not in your sign up page, it does not mean you do not have it, as most of us may have exemplified to varying extents by this point. I feel what Jimbo may have been referencing (just a shot in the dark) was what happened during the “deer-car chase.” Specifically, the fact that Lauren spotted incoming bullets, and proceeded to pull up your umbrella, shielding yourself, if I remember correctly. That’s just a guess. I am not faulting you, I would have probably just said they missed, hitting the vehicle, or grazing at best. Perhaps take a semi-lethal hit if I am in the mood. Like I said though, just a guess that is what they were getting at.

Oh, and why do you not just look at is as PVE with two of the E’s being P’s? I mean, enemies were parsed by Bloodyrain, just these two are parsed by their respective players. I honestly appreciate seeing added dynamics into games.

….I really need to post, sorry Bloody, I have been really busy.

Took me about the same amount of time to reply to you as it did to read it. I am a fairly competent typist, so I doubt that is much of a factor, but I am rather fluid reader. That being said, I doubt you would appreciate the post above you as much as I do.
