Topic: Forum Games: Forum Games / Applebottom's Exceptionals [Game Thread] [Germans attacking] [Sign-ups Always Open]

(Sorry Mar12345, I thought indiscriminate slaughter would have been the best course of action given my characters paranoia and perspective on the situation.)

Count Dorkula

He felt all of his creations suddenly disappear. It seems someone in the crowd, possibly an enemy had control over water, or else his creations wouldn’t have been destroyed so quickly and all at the same time. Well, so long as whoever wiped out his creations was still on the deck, it was pointless to waste anymore ink.

He still three rapiers and a musket painted on himself, so he was still armed, but to ensure his safety as whoever wiped out his lifeforms is likely looking for the source of creatures to ensure he wouldn’t spawn anything else, The Count took to roaming the hallways. He might find something useful.

Count Dorkula

After hearing a gunshot, and watching Captain Murasa rush to the sound, Count Dorkula decided that it would be best to follow her since there was safety in numbers, and if she’s going to be involved, the others would also likely be involved. However as far as Count Dorkula could tell, only one of their numbers besides himself used a gun in combat.

Outside, a crowd of people was rushing towards the top of the ship. They weren’t making an evacuation or else they would be heading to lifeboats. This wasn’t normal and one of his allies may have been in trouble. Quite a few of his paintings were left on the main deck, and the Count decided it may be best to act first and found out what happened later.

Stepping back into the Hallways, he drew a large circle in the floor before animating it into a crack which he stomped on with one foot causing the crack in the floor to shatter and smash onto whatever was unfortunate enough to be below. Whatever was going on won’t be able to reach him now. Now, he began to animate his paintings on the main deck. Since his original intentions for the portraits was to act as assassins, the paintings of two dozens of doppelgangers crawled out of the painting with claws for hands. His other paintings that he created to sell including a handful dogs and a painting of six soldiers also began to step out of their flat prisons.

However since there were too many people on the deck and he could not directly see the action in the hallway where he was safe, he gave his creations one order: attack everything they see regardless if they’re friendly, hostile, or neutral. His paintings could be overpowered by the crowd, however killing the civilians may buy his allies a window of opportunity should they be involved.

Topic: Kongregate / Summer '15 suggestion thread

I’ve posted this in the Kongpanions thread already, but I’ll post it here so it could be considered.

One possibility to reintroduce Kongpanions is to assign them to a game like a permanent challenge so long as the Kongpanion has something to do with the game. Like with Kongai, these Kongpanions really don’t have much of a presence since they usually have nothing to do with the game you earn it from.

However let’s say you could get the yeti Kongpanion from freeing the yeti in the cave in Kingdom Rush, or the bear Kongpanion from Burrito Bison after crushing X amount of bears. The pizza/burger/burrito Kongpanion could be assigned to Papa’s Foodstufferia games. Since there’s a wide diversity of games, and Kongpanions, a lot of games may be relevant to the Kongpanions. While they still have nothing to do with the games themselves, they’d be able to become more easily accessible to players and they’d have the benefit of promoting old games that may have been forgotten as well as being a token of your accomplishment.

I’m not sure how to link it since each time I make a link to it I get onto the 84th page, but I made a few potential arguments why this system could be beneficial on the last post on page 83.

That’s a relief. We’re probably going to be at a severe disadvantage in the current situation, but at least those two will still be able to help.

By the way, since it seems things are about to get intense an conflict cannot be avoided and it seems a few people haven’t posted for a while so we’re short a few people, will you narrate what they do or will we have to fight with a few people missing.

How about instead of a +1 you have an Exceptionally Lesser Cape of Aura Scrambling. We all know how exceptionally cheesy that’ll be.

If something like that is uber difficult to get qwertyuiopazs might be interested in proposing similar alternatives like a aura scrambler that doesn’t hide or disguise his aura, but randomly scatters his aura about. Or an aura jammer that lets people know there’s something there, they just can’t read the aura.

As for faking an aura, there may be stuff like mana sponges that you can imbue it with other peoples mana and it’ll display a different individual.

Count Dorkula

After witnessing a crowd of people gathering near the food tables, and Captain Murasa slipping out with a crowd of onlookers watching her, Count Dorkula decided to abandon his art stand and tail her. It didn’t matter if he didn’t take his paintings with him as any thieves who stole his paintings would merely help him distribute his paintings across the ship.

Because of the chaotic events at the hotel, he never got a chance to have her enchant his pouches, and he’d certainly find bottomless bags to be a useful addition as he wouldn’t have lost so many of his souvenirs that he collected at the hotel as taking them would have slowed down the evacuation. All he had left now was the fancy key inscribed with 303.

Still, the Count felt a nagging suspicion. Germany was relatively close to Britain and on a two day ship ride, it would be enough time to eliminate all the agents on the ship if there were enemy agents. It was just too quiet and things were coming along perfectly, and how well the operation was going made something feel off. No heist was perfect, and especially not a government one. The ship wasn’t intercepted by any warships, and without a doubt there would definitely be German spies who saw the hotel burn and a group of misfits walking together to a ship.

After he gets his pouches enchanted by Murasa should she choose to aid him, the Counts next plan was to murder a civilian and take their room keys in fear his own room was booby trapped. There was no reason to be suspicious yet, but the spirit of paranoia is the greatest guardian angel.

Edit:
[In the event that I’m stopped by Captain Murasa and she questions why I’m following her, my response is as followed]

“My good captain, I am interested in your intriguing ability. You see, my powers require ink and storage space to activate, so I was wondering if you would be so kind as to enchant these two pouches.” On cue, the Count pulled out two small pouches, one containing various ink vials and the other containing his hotel room key, his ship room key, and a roll of cash.

Topic: Technical Support / Deleted character

Not only that, but R2 also has an activity related character deletion in Crystal Saga, and they have this policy where if you don’t get on your character in this many months (I forget the number, but I think it was either three or six) they would delete your character, so it’s unlikely they would restore your character if they already have a policy in place to delete them.

@SypherKhode822, Lawrence Traverse got fake arms and I believe is wearing a mask.

(Totally OOC moment, but I remember we signed a magical contract. Can you explain how the magic in the contract works when enforcing it since Count Dorkula isn’t Count Dorkulas real name, so is he bound by the contract if he uses a self proclaimed, made up name like Count Dorkula? Depending on how things go, my batshit name might actually be useful)

“You’re young once, so capture the moment! Buy a memory of a lifetime!” Posing as an artist, the Count set up an art booth painting portraits for the rich. “These are no ordinary paintings good sirs and madams, these are enchanted to capture not just a moment of your life, but a scene of who you were.” To prove his point, one picture of a couple waved.

The Count had seen enough heists fail, and he’s made sure to make preparations. In the event that information had leaked, and there was an enemy agent on the ship he would have enough minions ready to pull from all over the ship if there was an attack, and if the situation allowed, he could animate a portrait when their owners were fast asleep to assassinate them at night and use the portrait gremlin as doppelgangers or spies. Also in the event that they were to be ambushed as soon as they arrive on port, the doppelgangers could create enough havoc to confuse his foes.

Along with portraits however, he had also prepared other artworks that may be useful such a multitude of feral wolves as well as paintings depicting soldiers.

5/5 idea great now someone delete all the excess plox

Well, adv0catus does have a point. The people will create games they want to play so if a thread isn’t popular, it’ll die off on its own, and regulations may trample on what the majority wants. I do indeed believe there may be a mechanism to make everyone happy, but thread merging as I proposed earlier may not be the solution after reading through adv0catus’ rant.

I know this may not contribute to what’s going on, but you should probably exclude Tyrant as an option since it’s shutting down this Fall since they announced they would shut the game down in one year last Fall.

Although doing a Kong guild also has the benefit of a private forum which makes leaving announcements to people not there kind of convenient. Not sure how chatzy works, but chatzy might not have that option.

Topic: Kongregate / Stagnation

There are less incentives to make free flash games now that it’s easier to create and distribute indie titles. Developers may not want to make a free game that only benefits them through ad revenue when they could instead try to create a project for steam and make money more money through sales.

Count Dorkula isn’t his name. It’s more like a self proclaimed title.

Well I feel having a strong, violent hatred towards an entire race also belongs on the weird spectrum, at one point or another

Well, at the time period, it may actually be considered normal since the characters ancestry with slavery and all that, and it may be strange to not to hate an entire race if you’ve lived your life resenting history.

They have to keep it pacified every once in a while or else it’ll become self aware, and a bunch of rather undesirable things happen. The internet will go down, nuclear war will start, and bumblebee flight patterns will be rerouted. The horrors.

So they made Kongbot super admin?

If it goes sentient, it becomes the super admin of the world.
