    I think that this forum's member posts should include their pronoun

    True. But there's no need to advertise such things. It's unnecessary. Just like I could put up my birthdate or gender or age. But I'd rather not. Info like that being up isn't always about being afraid of identification. It's simply a matter of privacy.

    I think that this forum's member posts should include their pronoun

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of this idea. There's already spaces to put pronouns if you wish. And pronouns aren't super pertinent anyways. People simply quoting or responding by username is the dominant form of address on forums in general. Besides, the less personal info about me people know, the...

    What Games Inspired You to RPGMake?

    You know what's absolutely crazy about this? It spawned an anime series. But I'm sure you knew that, considering your avatar. Anime sourced from games are rare enough as is (visual novels aside), but one from an RPG Maker game...that is most certainly a first.

    3 out of 5 is firmly mediocre. Not good, not bad. A viable choice if you really need to, but you should look elsewhere first.

    Books: Do you really bother to read them?

    I try to read as much as I can since story is important to me. Usually don't read everything though. This really is key. The longer your book is, the more important being readable becomes. A long book either needs to pull in the player's interest more than usual. like telling a story similar...

    What would a "scholar" class do?

    This is sort of how it works in ffxiv. Arcanists manipulate aether(magic) using precise geometric shapes iirc. Don't remember much about the scholar job specifically though. As for my own ideas, a scholar could be a theologist. Someone who invokes the powers of multiple religions to fight...

    How many PAID video games do you have?

    on steam alone, ~150 games. Counting other sources, probably closer to 200 right now. In recent years, I've made a conscious effort to severely reduce if not halt buying more games. ~33% of my steam games are completed so far. If we take actually playing your steam library into account, 85...

    Vampirism, Lycanthropy, and...?

    I've seen a fair share of media over the years where one can become a demon....either a genuine, full-one or something that's still extremely demonic, but missing that last little bit to become an actual one. I don't know what your lore is like, but it's not necessarily only a race thing in...

    What makes a good side Quest? Give us examples

    Not sure if you'd count these as side quests or not considering their arguable importance towards the last mission, but the loyalty missions in Mass Effect 2 stick out to me. It was really nice to not only know your companions better, but also help them when they needed it. There was some...

    Conveying to player what enemy skills do

    Letting your players experience it for themselves is probably inevitable to a degree. That said, special prompts and animations can convey that information. I've also seen games use status effects.

    Why do people make a good game for free?

    Free games can act as a "dry run" for a dev/team. The pressure to deliver a quality product & support isn't as high with free stuff so you can focus on learning from the release. If it's short, a free game can also be a low-commitment way to see how a team works together

    DnD/RPG games and development suggestions?

    Maybe looking at tabletop webcomics or stories will help? I don't do TTRPGs, but I found Darths and Droids to be quite entertaining. It might get you in the mood if nothing else.

    What makes a JRPG "streamable"?

    Streamers/youtubers themselves are a big part of why people watch that type of content to begin with. The best games for streaming are more gameplay focused with a degree of randomness. Games which allow for collabs between personalities are great for this too. Gotta agree with KawaiiKid on...

    How do I change my username?

    @Archeia Put in a name change request some time last week. Please check on that. Thanks.

    How cringy was the dialogue in your old/first RPGs?

    Unpopular(?) opinion: A lot of stuff here really isn't that bad. Some of it isn't that good mind you, but I really don't see writing too egregious (if at all) with a lot of posts.

This month+ saga of me setting up each dialogue is nearing its end :kaocry:

Another day, another patch. Praise be to the game make!
Okay... I'm injured and stuck in bed with a bad knee. And I'm only 24! I shouldn't be limping this badly, but my leg refuses to fully straighten and it hurts if I try to push it.
At least I have my games to work on.

To elaborate on "safety" since bgillisp locked the thread, some lunatics will take reports personally and decide to harass people who file reports or otherwise complain about them. Me, I don't care but others seeing that might nope right out of discussion. Being a former mod back in the mid-2000s for some gaming forums in by BYOND days I can tell you some people go crazy.
