A heads up to everybody, even if you have looked at the map already (whether through the world thread or by clicking Game Map at the top) as the story progresses don't forget to keep looking periodically. Especially when the days start moving by, the progress of the darkness will be reflected by the map and that will directly impact the areas where it touches. Just thought I would mention it ^^

UGH. Soo Ternal just rage quit. I think I am just going to scrap the cleric in Group 1 at this point. If down the road I get a good cleric RTJ we can always have them join in after the fact.

I ... have no words...
Nah here's the deal, he and I had already exchanged like 40+ messages about his character... many about properly using tenses and such... nothing mean or rude. I was simply helping him... when he posted in Freeport I sent him a message talking about him shifting between present/past tenses again. I even provided examples and proper ways to say things because it was clear he was struggling with it... his response was "I clearly don't have a good enough understanding of this, please remove me from game." He wouldn't respond to me beyond that... I told him I didn't want him to leave.. but I am also not going to wait around for him to change his mind... sooo ya.

In reply to Devlin McCain (msg # 63):

Pshhh no need to upgrade. 680's still rock man, especially if you put those mofos under water. Koolance makes AWESOME waterblocks, pumps, reservoirs and radiators. I bought this machine for 1200 (Shamefully it's an Alienware, so this guy paid like 5 grand for this sucker when it was new. Poor bastard). 6gb of VRAM is MORE than enough though especially if you OC, and 256 is also more than enough. Only reason I have 512 is because that guy happened to pay for a 512 lol. Ridiculous. What CPU do you run with?

The Yoga is sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet I'm jealous, want one bad. I'm leaning towards a Razor Blade instead due to the lack of significant GPU in the Yoga though. I'm a graphical snob and I do game a bit so the Yoga wouldn't cut it. Sweet screen resolution, build quality, size, and performance with that SSD built in though. And the flippy awesomeness. I don't mind Windows 8 honestly, people need to quit bitching and just wait for SP1 ffs.

Re: Shared OOC 1
i don't game on the computer, so it's all good. But, I had to have a relatively anti-reflective screen. This is the first non-matte I've had in years and I like it okay but miss my old (dead) thinkpad. The SSD and speed are nice, though. At least for my job and my online habits. The Thinkpad yoga is way nicer, my partner has a new 11 and it isn't nearly as good in pretty much every way, but it was way cheaper.

Just a heads up as lots of people are under the impression that when you SLI two cards together that the Vram stacks, it doesn't. Your still stuck with only 3GB total :(.

I'm running my old as sin I5 2500k @ 4.5 ghz. If I can save the money I want to grab the new Extreme they are releasing here soon, and go ahead with the ridonculus 128 GB DDR4 ram as well xD.

Is it the Helix, or the Yoga 11?

Yeah the traditional ThinkPads are, unfortunately, difficult as all hell to find. Lenovo did a lot of great things with IBM's production and marketing, but I'll never forgive them for that.

Did you get the i7 or i5 version? The i7's screen is ridiculous, like 1920x1200 crammed onto a 13" display. Not quite up there with the Crapple Retina display, but hey, this is a full Windows machine we're talking here.

Devlin: Interesting, I didn't know that. I often find that 3gb is still enough vram to avoid a bottleneck. I never was a fan of SLI (I bought a 590 when it came out to avoid the need), and it looks like my dislike was more well placed than I thought.

I have the Thinkpad Yoga, she has the new yoga 11.

I have the i7, I figured that I could get the 3 year break protection and be good for a while.

And the apple, I don't dislike but I do touch my screen a lot now. For all kinds of things. It's surprising.

Once 4k monitors drop in price and I can afford a matching set, I'm probably going to pick up another gtx680. Until then I'll be content with one. I mostly play dota2 anyways, so it is plenty.

Re: Shared OOC 1
If you want to avoid SLIing in the future, you might want to avoid the x90 series as well, they are essentially two SLI cards that are in one brick. They have most of the same draw backs, though are usually cheaper than two cards purchased separately. If you want a good single card solution with more power than a x80 series, go with a Titan, one of the Blacks or Z, don't matter which... Though I'd just wait until the 800's are all out and see what they do with the Titans after that (I'm expecting another upgrade).

Yeah 3GB is able to avoid bottlenecking for 1080p for the most part (unless you heavily modify skyrim or something similar), but I'm gaming on a 1440p 144hz screen and need the upgrade.. I want one of them 8 GB 290x's from AMD... Or for Nvidia to release something along those lines xD.

@Jada

Yeah 4k monitors will require 4gb of Vram at least, mostly because of the fact it's literally 4 times the work on the card/cpu to push out that 4k resolution. Oh and you can get a good 4k monitor for like 700 shipped right now, which isn't too bad... Though it's 60hz only :(.

The gaming shop "near" where I live is a place I've always enjoyed visiting. Even made the drive weekly for about a month to play DnD with them. Which means either it is a high quality gaming shop, or I'm a weird-o too :P.

Also, welcome to the game anyone I haven't already welcomed! I'm afraid my nerdiness with computers stops at software... I'm sure that setup is super cool though, Fidelias ^^.

Re: Shared OOC 1
Software's actually my strong suit, I program in C# and some C++. I just enjoy hardware, though (as is demonstrated by my not knowing SLI RAM didn't stack, gahh embarassment) I'm a software guru before a hardware guru for sure.

Under the hood the x90 cards mirror their ram as well too? So the 590's 3gb is really 1.5 useable? I figured that the two chips literally being on the same PCB would enable them to interconnect with both sets of RAM, though I guess it's too much to ask NVIDIA to develop software specifically for the x90 cards that is fundamentally different in its RAM manipulation, just for the small ass group of people that will buy them.

Interesting, nonetheless.

Re: Shared OOC 1
I am also a dev.. hmm.

Not an expert, but I think it is simply that SLI has two cards sharing a work load, so the same textures need to be loaded onto each card. So while you have 6gb total, each card is using its own 3gb for itself. Idk could be wrong.

Re: Shared OOC 1
If the GPU's are on the same PCB, they should be able to request the other's RAM content at the same speed that they'd be requesting their own. I think the problem is money--it would take too long, cost too much and have too little advantage to develop software that would have some sort of a management system to tell what areas are raw data vs intermediate calculations in memory and so on. It doesn't sound hard, but you're opening up a whole new area of testing and unreliability, along with problems that one could only have while using SLI/XF or a x90 or x990 card, thus reducing your card's reputation to shit.

Overall, I guess it makes sense to keep it the way they have it, from a financial standpoint.

Unfortunately.

Yes being best man can be a good deal of work, but it gets easier the more you've had to do it.

Did you enjoy the basketball game? Personally I don't enjoy watching sports, but as I said that's a personal thing.

Mondays tend to be slow due to them following the weekend, I'm sure things will pick up a bit now.

Soo off-topic... I am working on transcribing chunks of posts to a readable story that flows better than the post-by-post style we use in a forum type medium. I was considering breaking the segments of the story, as we progress, into chapters and possibly turning them into a pseudo web-comic/madefire book like is found on deviantart. Still a ways off anything being done, but I wanted to make sure nobody had an issue with that... I would obviously give credit to each of you for your respective characters.

Momo's pretty adorable. I currently have way too many cats due to a pregnant stray deciding she was going to walk in, drop off all of her babies and then wander off to God knows where, leaving me stranded with a bunch of kittens. Haven't minded having them around, when they aren't tearing apart everything even remotely fragile that can be found in the house.

Re: Shared OOC 1
Quadruple post attack.

Soo... on a completely different note...

What are your thoughts on rolling a D20 when combat actions are performed? I only bring it up because it adds a touch of randomness to the sequence of things... it wouldn't be the final determiner or anything, just a way to add a touch of chaos to the mix.

For example... a non-melee character trying to dodge two melee attackers would likely fail (to some degree)... but if we rolled a dice on combat actions you might roll high and it could act like the "luck" modifier. In NO WAY do I want to turn anything into a dice rolling game... I just thought it might be a fun addition to the way we do things.

Shoot me your thoughts regardless of which way you lean. Any response is a good one in my book.

   Thanks for your opinions, I will wait on more people to respond before I implement anything. Also on a different note, the map has been updated with a slight change. Nothing too impact-full, I just want everyone to be aware that as time moves forward in-game the map will slowly change to reflect. I know each group is moving along a slightly different timeline, but amazingly enough you are all relatively close to each other... time wise. That is my burden to bare not yours.. but either way enjoy your weekend!

Re: Shared OOC 1
Noted... however, Can you expound on your reasoning? I am not disputing your opinion, I just want to understand it. I was thinking about the whole "rolling thing" this afternoon and thought I might add some detail on how I would implement it...

I would expect everyone to write their post first.. and then roll. A well written post that has no particular reason to fail would not fail on a poor roll... I just want something to account for a luck factor to spice up the back and forth actions between player and GM.

So that would mean no rolling first... discovering you rolled a 2 and then writing a post that exemplifies that low roll. Successes and failures would still be based on the appropriateness of the action and the likelihood that the particular character would succeed. Not sure if I am just rambling, but I wanted to make sure to clarify that the roll is not a determining factor on the overall success or failure but just a luck factor. Sure... on some low rolls an action might fail but it wouldn't be happening because of a low roll per-say. IE... Lalita tries to engage in hand-to-hand combat with a knight in full armor.. .and rolls a 1. Failure is imminent regardless of the roll lol.

Re: Shared OOC 1
Sure.

The way I view free-form, and in part role-playing in general, is that it is collaborative storytelling. When telling a story, I want full control (or at least shared control with GM) on how the story progresses. In many stories, a character taking a wound or barely surviving can be a turning point in the story. When you start leaving things to chance, you partially lose control over scenes.

Similarly I don't like chance potentially placing characters in fail-states (dead, wounded, or unable to overcome an obstacle) in free-form games. In most full game-systems, there are ways to statistically mitigate risk that are harder to quantify without the predetermined rules surrounding contests and challenges.

In the end, what the GM says goes. Whether you want to do that via dice or not is your call. I don't think you'd mess anything up with it, but if I had to state a preference, I'd say no thank you. I just don't really see it adding much.  *shrug*

Now time to finally get that post up.. >.>

Re: Shared OOC 1
I think a d20 in the fassion of luck of success and randomness is alright by me so long as you have a plan should the action succeed or fail. I wouldn't want your plot ideas to deviate to far because everyone got bad luck. So a shaky yes from me with only minor concerns.

Re: Shared OOC 1
Ya, the dice roll will not impact success or failure of an action. It would just help me when writing responses to people to have some minor direction outside of the general story flow. If I determine an action has succeeded or failed... I would appreciate a bit of randomness to help me create interesting responses. IE: a high roll on an attack that I determine is successful might obliterate an enemy where a low roll would just be a successful attack which severely wounds an enemy.

Re: Shared OOC 1
FATE is a pretty cool system. I'm wondering though...what are the differences between FATE core and FATE Advanced?

Re: Shared OOC 1
Im not sure about FATE advanced... I only recall seeing stuff about FATE and FATE accelerated which is just a quick guide to the system... so I fail at answering that haha. I am just learning the system now, but it seems easy and clever.

Well, before it happens I will post in here and let you know. We will likely be meeting up on a weekend. It looks like it will be fast to get up and running though, quick character creation and then off to the races... should be able to accomplish as much in a sitting as we did in weeks on here.

Re: Shared OOC 1
     Well... I am thinking about getting something started... My local group has been failing at getting together lately and the itch has returned. I am not sure if RPOL is even the proper venue for a game with live sessions... but I might use it as a repository of information and then just have the group meet via one of the many options for audio or video chatting. I wouldn't go beyond 4 or 5 people; since there would be a requirement for, at a minimum, a microphone... I am sure that will cut down massively on people's interest.

     Regardless, I will use the Fate Core system and stick mostly to the rules... I have a number of settings in mind but nothing set in stone. If any of you are interested, I wanted to extend the invitation to you all before the general public.
I chose Fate Core because it is very story centric and doesn't rely as heavily on dice rolling. A work buddy and I even made an application which handles generating things like Equipment shops with inventories relative to a users roll and includes appropriate aspects and such for the Fate system.

     As this little response turns into a book... I will wrap it up by saying... this is a work in progress and like most things on RPOL... it will take time. The fate system uses the players to help build the game world... so only certain generic details will be made by me... and then the rest will be determined by the group in conjunction with myself. I figure the biggest challenge will be managing to get everyone in a chatroom at the same time... if it is possible though.. it would be a blast.. and we could move through 100x the content in fraction of the time.

     I will put out some of my ideas in this forum if there is any interest... otherwise I will be starting a new game. Either way, there is only a small chance that the game world will in any way be related to Acolytes of Light.... it is possible but not probable... unless there is overwhelming support for such a thing. Well.... I am done blabbing for now. Happy Friday everybody! Also, don't feel bad if none of you want anything to do with this... I won't judge.

Re: Shared OOC 1
so lets say... 5 people is the goal. I have 1 spot filled already for sure.
I think game sessions of 1-2 hours is a safe bet, if you have a mic and or webcam (cam preferred) and you are interested... send me a message. I want to know everyone's tentative availability... nothing set in stone. We may have to select people based on the rough window of time in which they can sit down and have a spare hour. I will say right now, my availability is Monday-Sunday between 4PM-9PM PST. Soooooo ya, whatever happens it will happen within that window of time.. or not at all... with the slight possibility of later on a weekend.

I say that I would be interested in such a game. Never done anything with live sessions before, but I wouldn't be uncomfortable with it. What system would we be using to run the session? Skype? Google Hangouts? Something else?

Re: Shared OOC 1
Cool. Well depending on what happens... maybe we can have a meetup relatively soon and discuss a general idea about the setting. I am considering using a modified game creation system called "A Spark in Fate Core" it has some really cool ideas and additional steps which are added to the core game creation steps in Fate.

Not sure how much people know about Fate, but one of the major differences is that the "game play" actually begins with game creation and character creation. It is less of a "players vs the GM" in some static story world that the gm has created... and MORE of a group effort to create an epic story. The characters that everyone represents are proficient and powerful heroes who live interesting and eventful lives.

Re: Shared OOC 1
it changes existing steps and adds new ones to the game creation phase.
The changes sound interesting.. and it seems to provide a slightly more defined framework for how game creation should proceed.

Hey so I'm working on putting together my first game, and I was hoping for some feedback on my concept and what I've put together so far.  It'll be smaller less than 10 players, if anyone is interested (and since we aren't playing here) please check it out and let me know what you think.

In reply to Lalita Chandra (msg # 339):

If it's traditional darksun, it's more like reclaimed materials. Weapons made of bones/rocks. Armor made from giant insect scales or lizard skin. Think shaby and improvised. ;)

To explain, it's a blasted world with 95% desert. Metal, wood and high quality fabrics/textiles are quite rare. (the magic of the land drains life energy out of the environment.)

Re: Shared OOC 1
Hey! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! ^^

In regard to a new game possibly starting, I'm afraid I'll have to pass, as I've started running a huge fantasy setting of my own and it ended up being much more elaborate than I thought it would be, so there's no chance of me doing any sort of quality posting somewhere else, as I have my hands very much full. If any of you have some extra time to spare and are looking for new games, feel free to PM me, we're always taking in new players.

In any case, hope you guys have fun and best of luck with the new game! ^^
