Will

Will didn’t even need to wait long as all the orcs were gatehered away trying to find a supposed group of endlings… in an empty place, they had very likely been tricked, and if they were tricked away from Morgan’s, it meant there would probably an endling right inside.

Tanks to the commotion caused by the orcs, most people were looking in their direction or to the place they were going, leaving the route to the mead house somewhat clear, Will moved fast but not enough to attract any unwanted attention towards the door.

Haven’t finished any of those, though I probably wouldn’t earn any badges from contract wars as my comuter is way below standards for that game.

So wait… then the tasty planet score is there just for show? (also, just asking, but while the SoaCP score is pretty straightforward I really don’t know what determines the EM score, is it time?)

I’d sugest using the OOC thread for OOC talk

WAit, let me see if I got this straight, the orc Will sees gathering at the end of town are gathering to capture the group of endlings are looking for the ones arach warned them about with his illusion?

Also, it’s very likely that I have a different timezone than other mebers of this and due to IRL time constraints I might not be able to make more than one IC post a day (at most)

definitely don’t put an impossible badge, maybe more easier badges for “discovering” the game. That is, if it gets badged…

I think what he said here:

The api only reports something when you’ve completed all the levels.

means the game doesn track how much you’ve “discovered”, only completion, that is, “game completed” would be the only possible badge.

EDIT: just opened it, it reports time and parts used, so possible badges would only be “game completed”, “finish the game in less than X time”, and “finish the game using less than X parts”

Will

Just outside of town, a figure clad in a mage’s robe lurked about, looking for a side entrance, even if he could pass as a forest elf, Will Twinleaf, better known as the chemical warlock, was a wanted criminal for forest elves and a mortal enemy for orcs. The only reason he intended to go into Margod was that he knew of one of the few places that still harbored endlings, Morgans’ house of mead, was located here, and it was one of the few places where he’d have a chance of meeting other endlings, unlike for other races, the mystic alchemist was still a respected figure for what few humans remained.

The half elf noticed his chance at a bridge with no guard other than a sleeping orc, of course, once past him he’d need a way to move int the city wihtout most people noticing him, he thought for a few seconds, and an idea came, as he passed next to the orc he left a mug next to him, the dink inside let out a sweet, fruity scent, it would probably wake the orc soon, but not fast enough that Will wouldn’t get to sneak into town before he awoke, it was one of his rarer brews, but without a doubt one of the most effective.

He didn’t regard the greenskins as being too intelligent, and figured the orc wouldn’t think twice at the alluring scent of the mysterious beberage, drinking it not knowing what it held inside. And then he’d have all the distraction he wanted thanks to the commotion caused by an orc rushing into town shrieking and foaming at the mouth while the suffocation, the internal bleeding, the acid eating away at his innards and the panic induced heart attack raced to see who killed him first.

Containing a sadistic grin to his thoughts, he entered the city and waited for his chance to get past the patrols.

So, why are people voting for 2b and then complaining about it? And random seeding is fine, just don’t have seeds… random draw double-elim bracket tournament isn’t terrible.

I don’t know, I voted for beat the average, that way it’s more of a free for all, and there’s no one who will try to keep their score lower to get an easier match, in a head to head elimination the only way to nullify that possibility is random seeding, which is actually the fairest method.

Name: Will Twinleaf

Age: 24

Race: half elf (forest)

Gender: male

Backstory: Will’s father was an alchemist who was traveling the woods in search of new materials for his research, he got lost in the vast forests and nearly died, but was saved by a beautiful elven druid that would one day become his wife.

The odd couple’s one son, Will, showed the natural connection with nature of a mage from his birth, but as he grew he also proved to have the inquisitive spirit that led is father to pursue the path of alchemy, after much doubt, he eventually chose to learn from both styles.

It didn’t take much for Will to discover he was learning much more than two completely disconnected things, chemistry and magic could be combined in fabulous ways, first he only created healing brews, enhancing solutions with spells, but as the first orcish attacks started his talent showed inrcedible results for combat, soon he was nicknamed by the elves “the chemical warlock” and “the mystic alchemist” by humans.

However, things changed when elves decided to surrender and humans chose to fight to the bitter end, the elven city where he lived started executing the mixed couples they used to harbor, Will’s parents had the same fate, but before they died the last they felt was loud, booming sounds, a few incendiary bombs in key spots had been placed and triggered by magic from a distance, it was more than enough to reduce the very flammable elven city to mere ashes, childs play for the chemical warlock, who was now branded an enemy of forest elves.

Traits: calm, inquisitive, friendly to people he likes, but very sadistic and even evil when angered, altough he doesn’t show it, would watch an enemy burn alive or squirm under the effects of deathly poison without losing his smile. Also a first class cook (some things don’t make medicine or poison, but are great as spices).

Inventory: an engraved yew staff and an enchanted bag (bigger on the inside) containing multiple alchemy tools (bottles, flasks, mortars) and several concoctions.

Equipment: wears a long, silk robe typical to mages.

Which ones? the ones from the front give you a big warning, the ones that come from behind you won’t even meet if you keep holding the sprint button.

I’d say random brackets would be the best option, that’s actually why I voted option 3, with a head to head you have the risk of ending up with either unfair matches (first vs last) or an unfair outcome (second best player is out, second worst remains)

Topic: Forum Games / World of Divide, Wars of Arionos: Signups ups are open, but may want to wait a little.

This looks interesting, I’d like to join, but I’d rather wait until each ntion and the world story is better explained, meanwhile, a few questions:

What are our characters supposed to be, new reruits in the selected nation’s army? experienced fighters? outsiders looking to join one? the nation’s kings/leaders?

How would combat be handled? RPG style with stats and dices or play by post RP descriptive style?

Also, Behemoth’s sheet seems pretty complete, I’d say it’s pretty good, though I’d add “personality” to it.

in the forus it would be useful to have spoiler tags, or some ther way of hiding images as to not clutter a thread with screenshots.

I’ll be joining, I’m certain I’ve already done all of these before… I can’t use a screenshot of the effing eteors badge to skip doing the game again right? (the others can’t be proven with the badges though)

Erm if you want to see squads move, I think having 2 tickers or faster is best. Personally I think they’re already casual enough.

The thing is that I don’t have much free time to log on and actually do things, I simply can’t keep up with fast paced worlds.

Topic: Battle Dawn / Kongregate Team for CE

I used to play .com, was pretty strong too, but I haven’t played in about 5 years, might come back for this though I need to pick up on some things that changed since.

Red boosts are the paid currency right? can’t really remember.

well I don’t really have the time to keep up with anything faster than 1 tickers unfortunately.

well I can’t even tell how much of a cliched sentence “you’re not alone” is, but I’ll still use it (it’s cliche because it’s true), call me around, death’s scared shitless of me, bring those consequences on, nothing is threatening to me.

Topic: Kongregate / Levels

levels are a testament of your skill as a gamer and define your identity as a kong user, they are a central part of the kongregate society’s hierarchy and are matter of honour and respect among members of the comunity.

or maybe they’re just flashy numbers that look pretty on your profile.

Actually the point of ads is being so repetitive that you get an ad block just to get rid of them, there you have the cold, hard truth, ads are just ads for ad blockers, what they actually say is just a distraction to make you sick of it.

Topic: Kongregate / You know what would be really awesome?

ehh… how does that text even relate to what you quoted? alright, I’ll humour you

Who are you talking to right now?

Someone who spends his time bitching in a flash videogame site’s forums?

Who is it you think you see?

I don’t see anyone, I’m reading comments on my computer screen

Do you know how much I make a year?

Do you know how much I care?

Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work?

That one’s easy, they’d fire you, because that what companies do when people don’t show up for work.

A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up.

If it’s as big as you want to make it sound then trust me, there’s no business that big that has anyone unreplaceable in it.

A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!

I really dislike shooting people, I mean, you take your distance and all you really do is pull a trigger, where’s the fun in that? plues you ruin the meat, try the knife, trust me, it’s way more exciting, plus you don’t have any sound to worry about (be careful when gutting, spilled intestines tend to smell like… well their contents)
