There have been some expections in the past, but wins are generally awarded to Mafias/Strategy/Competition games and not RPGs/RPs.

RPGs and RPs rarely award wins because of the lack of length and/or complexity needed to justify a win.

One of the reasons Labyrinthium was able to award wins was because it took three months to get to a certain point.

Edit: There was also the Sky Raid series, which was an RPG series that also awarded wins, but the justification for that was that it turned into a competition halfway through the game and players had to fight each other to be awarded the win.

I am sorry, Gonkey, but RPs don’t award wins. (Or cause wins to be awarded.)

I would like you both to know that withholding the win is not hurting either of you in any way. If you are patient, it can all be sorted out.

I have a theory that Racebandit doesn’t want my win to be awarded because he is jealous that I won the game and he didn’t.

If that is the case, than there is no need to worry. I just have to review it myself.

I’m in ForumGames for 1 month.

Usually people have to be active for several months before other regulars even consider someone ready for regularship. Even then, it is hardly a guarantee that you will get approved because of that alone.

Sorry, but that is technically not an FGF win. You did win the round, yes, but the game is not over, and spikeabc did not announce a win to be awarded to you.

Also, being an FGF Guest means that one has achieved an FGF win.

Yeah, there have been a few resistances previously run on this forum before, where I left out quite a few, and I even joined one as a reserve before.

From what I remember, it does require competent people who are committed to the game to have it end up working well. (I haven’t been in too many mafias/resistances, so my perspective might not be the best.)

(Ninja’d. I will still post this.)

People blaming autism for any sensible reason really gets me, personally. I mean, I don’t mind they don’t understand what the problem is, as long as they did not mean it/learn from those mistakes; but, if they know and/or go straight out and blaming autism for the problems, then there will more one more problem for them. =/

On the same track: I also don’t mind if people are stupid. If they are purposefully stubborn, though, then that is what I hate. (Eg: Telling people to shut up, especially repeatedly, when they are trying to explain something.)

I thought I might as well announce that I have resigned from my player role at this time. I don’t know when/if I will resume him, but this will not affect my co-hosting duties.

(Sorry, qwertyuiopazs, for making you wait.)

Kein

Having gotten settled, a goblin came up, obviously injured from confrontations that occurred during the occasional fights. When it asked for healing, and prepared to pay, Kein just shook his head.

“Heh. Do you take me for some two-bit healer looking to make money.” Conjuring a small ball of light, Kein floats it around the goblins body. “Don’t worry, this will help, but I will not take payment for it.” Silently, he ends up hoping this will at very least work in his favour in the long run. If not, it would be pointless. After a few moments, a snapping of his fingers causes the ball to disappear into thin air. “Now go on, that should be good, so there is no need for you to be here any longer.”

Well, I guess I should just post this here, for the sake of convenience, but I’ll likely be fairly busy for the next few weeks.

I will try to keep updated in the games I am in, along with updating the Master Thread, but it might not be as frequent as usual. (The plans for my FelineForumer’s Monthly Maintenance are still on, though.)

Topic: Forum Games / old kongregate card game

This is not the correct forum for this question, as the Forum Games Forum is for making text/image-based games to be played on the forum while General Gaming is the appropriate forum for questions like these.

But otherwise, the game you are looking for is Kongai. Hope it helped.

Topic: Forum Games / HOMESCHOOL [Writing Competition] ~ Round 1: Short Stories

(Here is my story based on a song title, with a unique spin.)


Burning Bright

The world, scorched by fire from great big dragons. Don’t really care. Never cared for surface dwellers. Kin is all left besides dragons. Dragons like us, too, gave us deal. We cooperated, they let us live. If not, we die like others.

It was almost time to appease dragons. Looking forward, even if it may be me soon. When dragons happy, kin is happy. Finishing up with pickaxe, drop it. Grab silvery rock. Dragons like it for some reason. Humans gave it to us for some reason before they died. Humans also give us yellowish rock. Humans stupid and useless. We don’t need, but dragons really like. Like more than other rock, even. Dwarves, like rock too, but also annoying, they no longer live. Don’t really care dragons killed them.

Holding rock in hand, leave tunnel, enter different tunnel. Continue down, enter cavern. Meet kin. They gather in anticipation, all going to same place. Going to meet dragon. One dragon, others left long ago, or died. Dragon don’t care others died, either. Not much different in end.

Reaching bigger cavern, all kin gathered. Dragon in dark corner, surrounded by useless rock. Passing own rock to nearby kin, they pass it ahead. Reach one after another, it reaches near the dragon before being tossed in front. Dragon did not react. It just stared at us, and the stone. Other rocks thrown on first rock. Dragon continued staring. When all rocks gathered, one of kin approached dragon. He was the one this time. Glad it was not me.

Kin member ran back and forth, taking rock from small pile and putting it in big pile. Dragon watch carefully. When small pile gone, kin member stood still. Stood alone, other kin backed away. Backed away to edge of cave.

Dragon suddenly talk. More growl than talk. Tell us he not pleased. Too little rock. We being lazy.

We were not lazy, but we would not argue with dragon. Kin member just cowering, but not arguing.

When dragon stopped talking, it stood up high. Kin member covered head. Would not help. Dragon breathed fire. Fire that killed world. Felt the heat from here. Light was bad, made looking hard, even knowing result. When fire was done, no kin member. Not even bone.

No other kin hurt, not even scared. Used to it by now. Everyone look around. Looking around for next kin to appease dragon. Look at kin member. Kin member look at me. Glancing around, all kin looking at me.

Yeah, sorry, there was a bit of a misunderstanding on my end. I was under the impression that the Nationality/Birthday list was for everyone, while the Contact list was for regulars.

I would like to point out two things:
1) People have lives, so it should not be surprising if you do not get replies immediately.
2) People can always improve, there is no point when someone can say they are perfect and need no more improving.

Originally posted by ConstantProgress:
Should I ask for regularship right now?

Even if you think this is hedging the ‘asking for regularship’ problem, this is basically the same thing. I would say ‘no’, largely because I still think you haven’t really contributed all too much to the forum and you have points you can improve upon.

If you are trying to be funny at these time, they are not funny.

You accused me of having no sense of humour before, when I was pointing out things that can be seen as fairly rude even if you were trying to be funny. Both the statement and the fact you do not take things seriously upset me, even when I was trying to help you.

In fact, as said by a few people before, you seem to have an air of elitism around you, and, even if it is not purposeful, that is not really helping.

Actually, you have only about 160 posts on the forum, and around 70 of those were on continuous games. (So, 90 posts in non-continuous games.)

As one regular said recently, OT isn’t FGF.

Spending time in OT does not mean that we in FGF see you as a regular. They are basically separate entities in those terms.


As I just said the other day, it is recommended to ask for regularship after a few months of being on the forum and being on the forum for only two weeks is not going to be enough for most regulars to access you in the first place.

For FelineForumer/ForumGames: How many weeks/months I have to be in FG forum to be in the list?

It depends on the regulars, as you need three of their approvals.

Most, at minimum, want several hundred posts, which generally should be on non-continuous games – Mafias, Roleplays, and similar games – along with being on the forum for several months before being considered for regularship. Some regulars have different criteria, so it is never always the same.

As an example: for me, I generally approve of someone if I have frequently seen them in non-continuous games, they have been active for about three months, can commit to things they sign up for, and in general have a good head on their shoulders.

Topic: Forum Games / [RP] Realms Adrift [MAIN GAME] [SIGNUPS ALWAYS OPEN]

Reiko

Having been drifting through the Astral Sea for the last few days, she had no real goal. She just like to prowl from time to time and explore new areas, and even though she did not know how far she was from her usual realm, she knew the general direction of it, and the fact she was father than she ever went before.

The possibilities of what she would discover were endless, and the potential for new prey would be enticing. Rolling slowly to observe her surroundings, a new realm caught her eye; it was positioned directly below her and gave off a weird yin-yang feel when looking at it. Letting herself continue to roll upside down, she pushed off of her Ki and propelled herself down.

As she approached fairly closer, it seemed the realm had no prospects of being what she thought it was going to be. No nature, and a lot of rocks, along with stone and metal buildings. There were two things that looked unnatural in the light side of the environment, and they both drew her attention. One was a winged thing similar to a bird, but not similar in any other way, and the other was a black thing just as weird. Piquing her interest, she decided to slow her descent and observe realm from a good height. There were just as equally odd looking people everywhere, from what she could see from her height, and it would be best to watch for a short bit before going down to interact.

Kein

Having slowly made it to the front of the line, it took all his patience to ignore everything around him during that time; since he did not want to be distracted. It was hard enough to not get angry at the line in the first place, but he made it.

Finally giving the demon his paperwork, he was finally liberated from his duty. Walking away from the line, Kein gives one last look at the demon that was behind him, who was now focused on secretary. It did not matter, in the end. Having worked his way to one of the undamaged walls of the room, and sits back and decides to demon-watch for the time being, hoping it would relieve some of the tension.

It’s simple. This is a continuous game. These are forbidden. Insta-nope.

Yeah, that is also a reason. I would like to point out that continuous games that require consistent input from both the OP and posters are not forbidden – such as The List – and it is the ones that require little to no input that are banned from being created now. (Which Constant’s game would fall under that category, given his last paragraph.)

I would like to point out it is kind of a stigma that all continuous games are banned. Since the vast majority of new continuous games fall into the latter category, it kind of becomes easier to tell people that continuous games in general are banned, even if it is technically not true.

In my opinion, I think it would be best for you to just focus on a single game at this time, instead of trying to run multiple games at once.

Trying to create a self-running game is not as easy as it sounds – as I tried one once, a long time ago – and there does not really seem to be an actual reason for you to create such a game beyond trying to create a game that will get posts on it’s own without your own input. (Which is a good reason for my disapproval of this.)
