this thread is for players to discuss things as players that have nothing to do with this game or its characters.

How do you know when a joke is a "dad joke"?

It's a-parent.

Oh lord.
I was horrified when my wife told me that my six-year-old son wasn't actually mine. Apparently, I need to pay more attention during school pick-up.

Sadly most recent holiday was over a month ago, which was Thanksgiving.  I am recovering from the US holiday as I cover for it.

Are there any bodies laying around in the house?

Also it depends on how long Bai and Honey have been there, she has likely been using unseen servant.

I was thinking we got there about 5 minutes before everyone else, so probably enough time to have had a quick check around the house I would guess?

Vait Ironhand:
The evil dead likely would have jumped out at us. We have the better part of the day to expect possible initial members to arrive. It's important to make sure that there is nothing here before a tear happens, He let himself make a little extra noise though, in case there was something hiding still, he would rather it came at him and his instant swords, "It should be noted that despite being human, I only sleep 2 hours a night and don't need to eat. I still like to eat but if we are isolated it is okay that my hunting skills are crap. I got good at sneaking though and detection, to avoid my mother's extra combat training any time I lost," he chuckled softly as he finished speaking.



Vait I was unsure if you followed the others saying that or said that to Honey?

I was imagining him as having called that out while he was going through some of the farther reaches of the interior of the farmhouse. In my head though was different than what came out of the post LOL

If something is found in the yard outside I'm imagining that The farmhouse has a significant amount of relatively open space immediately around it. I believe that that would give enough warning if there were some undead left over from a previous tear or wandering in from another area so that we would be able to see them as long as someone was looking out. Bai said that she was headed outside and that should be good enough for now, Vait just wants to make sure that the interior has been properly swept and not wanting to risk other people to do it when he's likely the most acclimated to close quarters combat, he's taking that responsibility into his own hands. That doesn't stop him from speaking loud enough to be heard by anybody who's inside.

Do I wait to get introduced, or am I just there with you all? I want to make sure I understand what is expected of me here.

We've just started and were instructed to introduce ourselves with our arrival at the farmhouse which will be our base of operations.  Honey is currently there.  Vait, Bai and myself are at a pit 200 feet away.

I feel like I read something like this before. Wasn't there an experiment with a perfect rat society like this? No external hardship from food, shelter, water, weather and the like.

I'll be going out of town until Wednesday, pretty unlikely I'll be able to post until that evening.

I wonder what the general population's resiliency to pain, suffering, or even just people speaking mean words to them is in this world. I mean, I learned how to ignore even the nastiest of things said to me in High School well before I was a Freshman. How fragile is the psyche of this society as a whole is nothing was ever said wrong about them ever? In real life, we know how dangerous words can be, but if we assume that no one has any sort of resiliance to insults due to no one lying or talking mean in any form, how dangerous are your words in this society without those years of thickened armor to the pointed barbs that can be invented on a regular basis?

Any thoughts on this? Still trying to get my bearings on some of the implications of these concepts. It's pretty wild.

society collectively and individually (yourselves included) has never heard criticism that wasn't constructive.

(the world) is a mint condition action figure, that nothing bad has ever happened to, because something outside (the world) is protecting it and ensuring it STAYS in mint condition.

Invented by whom, in this society?

it would take some significant corrupting event...like the invasion of undead...that does irreparable damage to this perfect world...For something so HORRIBLE to happen.

Re: OOC; general chit chat
People likely would continue to assume the best of other people. People don't lie or cheat. We build tolerances based on negative experiences.

Accidents happen, natural disasters, it isn't a world without pain. It IS a world without cruelty. People hear hard truths and rather than being able to let them roll off themselves, they accept their truth and improve themselves. No one says hard truths without hoping you improve. There might be some 'bro' style sh!t talk among rivals...
