Topic: Forum Games / PL: Psychological Strategy Redux (POST GAME DISCUSSION)

Well hell man, this looks really fun. Just saw Adeeb’s message though (Moved into college this week, it’s been really hectic).

Speaking of which… Adeeb’s message. Adeeb! You’re alive! It’s about damn time you show up mate. What happened to you?

And Sup! Great to see you again too man. Really sucks that I can’t get in this – One of the only games that would actually draw me back to FGF. Ah well. I’ll go ahead and check in every now and again, see how things are going.

Anyways, great to see the two of you guys together again. And for everyone else who has posted in this thread but whom I haven’t acknowledged – Nice to meet/see you again!"

I’ll leave you guys to your game now. Best of luck to you all!

Good to hear Reaper.

And dev, I’m not going to provoke you. We have conflicting views, and that’s that. I think you may have misinterpreted my commment, as I was merely trying to be nice.

Hey Drovoxx! Great to see you after so long. How’s everything going?

I’m glad to hear you feel things are improving Dev. The sooner we can lay this thing to rest, the better.

Hello everyone. Funny, it’s only been about a month since I last posted here (although that was just a fleering encounter), yet it feels like much longer.

I must ask – how is everyone doing? How is the forum as a whole doing? I’ve already garnered some information on that matter, but I’d like to have the opinions of the masses. So, is progress being made with the Dev issue? Have we managed to reconcile the blow that AN’s departure delivered? And, most importantly, are there any new problems that have arisen?

This first bit is unrelated to the Master FGF Thread, but I’d just like to say that I’m rather disappointed that the thread that I made was locked (although I do feel that was the right course of action). Thank you to those of you who did not partake in the argument, or who attempted to stop it.

Yes, somewhat insulting. ZShadow, we’re trying to get ourselves out of the hole, and I think a lot of other people would be encouraged to do so if a mod wasn’t holding our hand the whole way. We’ve shown that we can keep ourselves controlled during a stable situation: Let us show we can do so during a crisis.

I’ll have to politely disagree. I personally believe that the ZShadow and Gevock are completely in the right. We’ve had the opportunity to take control of the problem ourselves for quite some time, and the results are quite evident. It’s my opinion that you should be trusted until you break that trust, and then you must work to regain that trust before you can be allowed the privileges you had before. While I’m not saying the mods should hold our hand throughout the entire process, they should still be here to ensure that we don’t further dig ourselves into a hole.

As for the matter of editors, I’ll try and get in touch with the others.

if that’s so then firespread is too.

I don’t care what Fire’s done in the past. Have you even read the OP? He’s stating that he’s wanting to move forward. He’s doing something. It seems quite clear he cares about how this place ends up.

He is a bad man, worse than many. Sadly, he also revealed many of us are prone to falling as low as him over stupid reasons.

Exactly my point.

And Gastly, I honestly don’t know if you are a major perpetrator, but if you are, it doesn’t have to remain that way.

I feel that I did. It’s better than doing nothing. And he was the catalyst for our current problem…

Nevertheless, I didn’t write a ‘ten paragraph essay’ about him. I could care less about him. The OP is about our need to come together as a community once more, come hell or high water. It honestly matters little that developous brought us into this rut, what matters is getting out.

No, fuck no. Don’t be yourself, I tell you. That’s the point of the Internet. You aren’t yourself here, and keep it that way.

By that I meant you can still have feelings and your own ambitions and whatnot. Obviously, few people are themselves on the internet.

Tell me what would’ve happened if developous was never here.

We sure as hell wouldn’t be in this mess. Or, who knows, maybe we would. Maybe someone like developous would come along. To be completely honest, there are an infinite number of possibilities of as to what has happened due to developous not showing up, but even his absence doesn’t mean that we’d still be the great community we once were.

I feel that we needed developous to show some serious flaws in our group. He’s revealed to us that we weren’t as strong as we once thought. And now we can aim to fix that.

I disagree. If we do nothing, we won’t get out of this rut. All Firespread is really asking for is to people to agree to ignore Developous. Which is our main problem. We need to bond together as he says. It’s not a petition to change the world in one day, just to come together and ‘face’ our biggest threat.

I’ll sign it.

Actually King, Jimbo’s right on the money. People have been ignoring developous for quite some time, but there are those who haven’t, and that’s what’s gotten us here. Peace throughout FGF would be nice, but I doubt with it’s current size that everyone will get along perfectly. There will be some tension no doubt, but it’s best if that tension isn’t expressed here. Just because I don’t like Username_A doesn’t mean that I need to derail a thread trying to prove him wrong.

I feel that we need to realize that our actions should be based primarily off what’s best for the community. That’s not to say you shouldn’t be yourself, but if what you’re about to post is going to cause a flame war, just don’t. You may feel as if you’re proving developous wrong and ‘bringing him down,’ but in reality you’re just hurting everyone else who doesn’t care what he does.

Work to bring the community back together. Continuously tell those who do continue to bicker to cut it out. Do what SS said. You’re not in the wrong if you choose to do nothing, but I don’t feel you’re in the right either. You’re a brony too, right? I feel we need to use the magic of friendship here if we wish to bring this community back to it’s former standards.

One question: How did this all start?

The ‘war’ with developous? I don’t think I was around for the beginning of it, but essentially he came in, began making a bunch of games (and quickly closing them), and then began to ask for a second game. When he was denied, he began to declare his beliefs that FGF was a tyrannous organization that he had to overthrow, and yadda yadda yadda.

And sickening as it is, he’s more or less won.

Hello there. I’m here to talk about a major issue in this community. Maybe you know me, maybe you don’t; it’s matters little in the long run.

I’ve been around here since before this place was even a forum. I remember the petition to make it it’s own forum, and that nervous anticipation of as to whether or not everything would turn out alright. I remember the glory days, back when everyone was friends with everyone, and there was a sense of order among the forum. I remember the forum being praised by the moderators for being so good at self-policing itself.

I also recall discussing the fear of how things would change as we began to expand at a rapid pace. It’s not that I didn’t want any new members, I just felt that the tightly-knit community we had established would be blown out of the water with such a high influx of members.

Boy was I right.

I’ve been checking in here every now and again for quite some time, and we’ve been slowly going downhill. I fear we’re rapidly approaching a point where we won’t be able to reverse our course…

So I have something I’d like to say to the vast majority of this community.

Grow. The. Fuck. Up.

Developous is a human being just like the rest of us. He’s made of flesh and bone. He’s sitting in front of a computer right now, somewhere in the world, just like the rest of us.

Admittedly, he’s a little different. An ‘odd’ set of beliefs. A tendency to frequently close his games. Just like me during my first few months on the forum. He’s easy to hate. I was easy to hate. Only difference was, at the time, FGF didn’t exist. So why didn’t everything go to hell when I was around?

There’s the obvious reasons, like that I was just one member in a vast forum (OT), that there were others like me, etc. I’d like to say it was because people wouldn’t ridicule me when I shut down a game or attack my strange beliefs.

But that’s exactly what’s going on here. Developous is an easy target. He’s been an annoyance for quite some time, and everyone likes to vent their anger on the internet, right? Couldn’t be simpler!

Only you’re destroying this community.

Developous isn’t the problem. You are. You need to understand that his actions matter little, and don’t have an impact on this forum. Yours do though. One man can’t change the world. But a mob of people sure as hell can. They run through the streets crying for justice, destroying order along the way, until they finally can lynch the man that’s made them so infuriated.

You’ve turned Developous into a martyr. You’ve persecuted him for his beliefs, and in doing so have only reinforced them in his mind. Who cares what the hell he does or thinks. There’s what, 7 billion or so people in this world? He is one. ONE. That’s it. He could be your neighbor’s son or some kid you saw at the market. He could be anyone, but he’s still just one person. If the world were to get all riled up in response to one person’s actions in the same way you guys have, there’d be nothing more than a smoldering crater left.

I feel that that’s what FGF has become, or what it is soon going to be. I’ll show you a major problem right now. Adeeb leaves, unannounced. Oh my god, Kongregate might as well have announced that it would be shutting down. I wasn’t there for the little fiasco, but I’ve heard what happened. It seems evident to me that, sickening as this is, he was the only thing holding you guys together.

And now he’s gone.

No more bandaids kids. If you guys don’t manage to re-build something akin to a ‘community’ and reinstate order around here, this place is going to become a desolate wasteland like so many other FGFs before it.

The thing is, I honestly don’t think you guys can. I’ve been with this community for a long time, and I’ve seen what you’re capable of.

Or, rather, what you were capable of. I’m not saying every single one of you is tearing everything apart. But many of you still aren’t doing anything to fix this mess. And don’t say you can’t do anything. That’s bullshit, and you and I both know it. If you want this place to be anything like it was, man up and get to work. It’s up to you. Don’t worry about letting anyone down other than yourself, because I’m telling you right now, a lot of people could care less about how this forum ends up.

That’s it. That’s the situation, one which many of you are already painfully aware of.

I came here to discuss the fate of this forum, but honestly, it’s not my problem. How everything turns out in the end?

That’s on you.

Dev again eh? I’ve said it before, and I’m sure many others have as well… But c’mon guys. Just ignore him. I mean, look at this place. At first glance, it looks like a hellhole. Nothing like it used to. Do you really want that?

As for Adeeb, I’m sorry to hear that he’s left (for however long). However, he shouldn’t be the only thing that holds everyone together. This place used to be a community that was fully self-sufficient, one that mods used to praise for being so well behaved. And that wasn’t because of one guy. I respect and care for Adeeb, but you can’t tell me that his absence has caused all of this.

Come back online after a day of flying and festivities

Well crap. I thought it was kind of obvious I wasn’t the intruder – for one, my post in the application thread more or less revealed that I did indeed sign-up.

But I won’t berate you for it. I too thought we each had a vote to cast… But I guess we were wrong. Now we know though, eh?

As for the accusations of me being the mole: I’m not. I don’t know how I can prove this, other than by saying that I’ve only tried to help the team. Honestly, I don’t think we’ll start to get any solid evidence until later.

Also, I’ll be PM’ing everyone in a second.

Anyways, Lou does bring up some good points. Nevertheless… I still don’t think there’s enough evidence supporting it. Sure, we could just take a shot in the dark, but that seems too risky to me.

Anyone have any ideas on what to do?

Topic: Forum Games / Ayren - Act I

[It should be noted that none of the men have ever seen a Tsunami before. That, combined with the fact that it struck the ‘inland’ side of the island (Meaning it would have struck the mainland as well) means that they have absolutely no idea what has occurred here.]

[Oh, and the Reshe army is several thousand strong. Compared to several hundred from Helvitka’s side… It’s more or less a determined battle.]

[Also, sorry for the lack of quality in this post. I’m going to busy today, so it was extremely rushed.]

Dustin

Something isn’t right.

That’s the only thing I can think about as we load off the ship onto Helvitka. Or what’s left of this part of the island anyways. It’s not even the absence of the Deepwaters fleet anymore – It’s quite evident what happened to them. But how?

Wreckage is strewn all about the beach. From shards of wood to an anchor caught between several rocks, it’s apparent that something devastating has occurred. Which means that the King was right. Could he have… Known?

I shake the notion from my head. Of course not. Still…

“Dustin, we’re moving up. You know the goal.”

I turn to Valories, who has finished gathering up the rest of the men. I nod. “Alright. Let’s go.”

We encounter no resistance as we make our way up the beach and through the plains. There’s an eerie silence draped over the entire place.

In fact, it isn’t until we’re in sight of Marsh that we run across anyone… And even then he’s dead. The corpse is covered in bruises, but otherwise seems untouched.

Several of the men kick the body before Valories scorns them.

It’s only once we cross a large hill that we see where everyone has gone.

A massive camp surrounds Marsh, and the cries and stench are enough to reach us from up here. All of the men pause for a moment.

What are we to do? It’s not as if we can attack these people… But they probably won’t be too happy about us just walking through to capture their king.

The sight of several men approaching us from the camp makes it evident that they’ve noticed us. The man in front has no armor on, but he must be of a higher rank than the others following behind him.

He steps before us, glancing at our ranks. “When I first saw you, I hoped you may have been sent to aid us… It was only then that I realized that the wave hit only today. You aren’t here to help us. So then, I must ask, what are you here for? I feel I may not like the answer, but it is something I must know.”

Valories is the one to respond. “A few days ago, a man was caught attempting to assassinate the king. He carried a note on him that was from your king. We are here to detain him and take him back to Reshe for trial.”

The man snorts. “That’s not going to happe-”

“What do you intend to stop us with? Your men are clearly in a state of disarray. We do not wish to harm you if we can avoid it… Just let us through to your king.”

“You don’t really expect us to do that, do you?”

“No… I don’t. But I do not want to fight you. Your people need you. If we were to enter a battle now, it is quite evident who would win. Who would be there to protect the citizens afterwards?”

The man is clearly enraged. “You think you can just walk in and take our king with no resistance? And now, of all times? You know damned well if the Deepwaters Fleet hadn’t been decimated you would have never even landed on the coast. So you took our weakness to your advantage, eh?”

“You just said yourself that there was no way we could have known. Loo-”

The leader is no longer paying attention though. He turns to one of the other men and says something, causing him to run back to the camp.

“Take him out. We can’t have him rallying up their troops,” Valories orders.

Several arrows soar through the air from behind us. One buries itself in the back of the man, causing him to fall to the floor.

Valories turns back to the enemy captain. “Now, li-”

The man is charging towards us though, a dagger raised above his head.

Chaos erupts as our entire army rushes forward.

She wasn’t a bad person… She just did a bad thing, acting like a complete asshole to Kilo during his game. Essentially berating him to close the game.

So I made a thread calling her out on it, and letting Kilo know the community wasn’t all like that.


In other news, Merry Christmas FG! As we close off this excellent year on a rather shaky note, I can only say that I hope that all will be well in the next.

Either way, I hope all of you have an amazing time over the holidays!

Wait, so the intruder isn’t aware that they are such? Oh… Well then I guess pictures won’t be as important for this task. I was referring to taking pictures of one’s PMs to ‘prove’ their role.

Anyways, it looks like our best bet would be to PM everyone on that lost asking them (Can we do that even?)

If so, this task will be extremely simple.
