Tacticular Cancer: We'll have your balls

  1. It has come to this administration's attention that brofists are divisive, and encourage the formation of agenda-based brofist cliques. The RPGCodex strives to provide a welcoming forum experience for all fans of the genre, and brofists are hindering this mission's success. In light of this, brofist functionality has been removed so as to create a new, better, Codex browsing experience.

    We further advise our members not to attempt circumvention of this removal by reverting to the old and just as divisive method of creating empty posts of "+1" and "what he said." Such posts only seek to further a culture of exclusion where select users may end up feeling discomfort or emotional trauma. These posts will be considered spam and thus a banable offense. The Codex administration seeks to provide a safe and secure posting environment where the needs of the minority outweigh the needs of the agenda-reproducing majority.
  2. Welcome to rpgcodex.net, a site dedicated to discussing computer based role-playing games in a free and open fashion. We're less strict than other forums, but please refer to the rules.

    Yeah I'll set one up for coup de grace and a few other useful actions/modes. I like the radial menu but it's a bit of a bitch for non-spellcasters.

    Another thing that annoys me, is that the game ends combat if all the enemies get disabled by sleep or another spell, but are still alive and can wake up. Mashing C as soon as combat ends helps, but that is still a bad design choice IMO.

    EDIT: I only have one manual save file, because we only need it if the entire party gets annihilated by river lobsters of doom or more spiders. Unless there is a save corrupting bug that I am not aware of and Co8 did not fix. Then I guess I'll make back up saves.

    Jesus christ, disable autosaves too, that (can) corrupt your game.

    So far I'm just kind of visiting, not back. Most of my interest in pure roleplaying games and faux elitism became collateral damage of the butchering I do with my personality every time something new and cool catches my fancy, so other than talking Kpop in the library and checking what funny stuff are you guys doing with the playground there's not a lot of niches for me to fit into anymore, nor a lot for me to comment about without going into trying too hard to sound like myself modo.

    Thank you for the re-welcoming, anyway. And sorry for my sudden disappearance from the internet.

    I'm the most honest and honourable evil witch you will ever meet.

    That aside you seem to be having much more fun LARPing me as a teenybopper idol cum mahou shoujo, so keep the bard if you have to remove one of them.

    You can keybind five foot step? Why did I never know about this, It would have made it so much easier. Guess I will have to try it out when ever I get around to replaying it.

    You have to redo it every time you start a new game because that is saved on the savegame.

    Woah there...keep the sorc. We all know her as Black Cat by name so it's better for LP/LARP purposes, and you really need a leveled sorc if the party is going to survive inside the temple.

    @ Hellraiser

    Use the sorceress then, if it comes down to that.

    And I don't mind the LARPing, don't worry. My comment was derived from it seeming too little and too mild to satisfy my attention whoryness rather than from it being too much or too offensive for my refined tastes.



    @ Teepo

    I'm doing what I can. It has already surpassed Gu Hara's, at the very least.

    Personally, I thought it was simply crappy because I lack inspiration to write better lines for the sorceress. Although I now have a solution to this problem, assuming people vote to free up a slot for others by getting rid of one of the Black Cats. So far nobody voted, no doubt fearing your noir feline wrath. Still, I think it will be better if we give others get a chance to see their ToEE personas horribly mutilated by kobolds, bandits or crawfish on steroids. So I'll do that unless you lot vote "NO, KEEP BOTH KURONEKO-CHANS!!1!!" at least once.

    I don't care, but if you decide to kill one of BC's lives, make it in a most interesting, disturbing and awkward way possible.

    Kill or just dismiss the bard - she's kinda not what the party needs and her LARP is not that good, anyhow. I'd rather see KC in the party (for the climatic battle with rannos davl, obvously) or whomever (to make things really awkward vaarna or hiver can do).

    Interlude

    Fate works in mysterious ways

    Power check... OK
    Memory check... 1024 TQB OK
    Meta-cognitive chipset initializing...
    DONE!
    Loading wlrl.exe...
    Initializing

    [​IMG]: Load simulation 27.

    Loading simulation 27 "survival of the fittest - codex"...

    Terrain meta-data loaded
    Entity data loaded
    Personality templates loaded
    Ready to resume

    [​IMG]: Analyzing currently gathered data. Analysis complete, sending results to Primary Node.

    Incoming data packet from Primary Node...

    [​IMG]: Current amount of testing is insufficient. Proceed with further testing, specimens viable for combating the decline need to be found. "RPG CODEX" is the most promising source of viable candidates.

    [​IMG]: Resume testing.

    Resuming...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: Oh yeah, now I'll be able to murder things better.

    [​IMG]: I thought you wanted to stab things?


    [​IMG]: As long as my victim dies a horrible painfully death, I don't care how I kill.

    After the kobold encounter, the party went back to hommlet to sell stuff. Afterwards it traveled back to the bog and encountered nothing along the way.

    [​IMG]

    I decide to take the scenic unexplored route leading to the dungeon. A shanty town somewhat reminiscent of Liberal's hometown in Georgia.

    [​IMG]: This town is in serious need of some rainbows. It's all bleak and stuffies.

    [​IMG]: Stuffies? [sigh] It appears Black Cat's vocabulary is becoming contagious.

    [​IMG]

    :rage:

    Goblins ambush the party. Black Cat is caught out of position because of crappy pathfinding making her go around the other side of the shack :x

    [​IMG]: GOBLINS AMBUSHED US! HOW VERY UNBRO OF THEM, LET'S WHACK THESE POPAMOLE CREATURES!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: Why am I bleeding... so... much...

    :rage:

    FUCKING CRITICAL HIT DURING AN ATTACK OF OPPORTUNITY!
    Maybe just standing there was a better idea *sigh*

    [​IMG]

    BLOBERT KEEPS MISSING. God damn it. At least our USEFUL melee characters are doing something.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: How was that not a sneak attack? What bullshit is this?! How did that goblin see me?!

    Yeah, I was pretty sure that was a valid backstabing position. But Running Fox is still :incline:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: BROS, LOOK AT THIS!

    [​IMG]: Ah yes, the walking pile of lard will miss again how...

    [​IMG]: OH SHIT! Bro, that was brutal!

    [​IMG]: TOLD YOU MY AIM WAS JUST A BIT RUSTY BROS.

    [​IMG]
    Hoverdog murders a goblin with his maces of doom. :incline:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: I find making holes in your back rather enjoyable. How about you, Goblin?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: KURONEKO CHAAAAN! Don't die!

    Yeah, with all the goblins around her I can't attempt to stabilize her. Furthermore the bloody goblin leader is standing next to Renegen so I can't attempt to cast any spells with him. Fucking goblins.

    [​IMG]
    Running Fox keeps delivering more :incline:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: So yeah BLOBERT, when will you hit somethign again? As you can see I could give you some pointers.

    [​IMG]: I DO NOT WISH TO HAVE THIS CONVERSATION WITH YOU BRO. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH MY AIM, YOU ARE JUST LUCKY.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: KURONEKO-CHAAAAAN!!!!!

    [​IMG]: Specimen's performance below expectations, terminating. New specimen will be required. A consensus will be needed.

    Deleting "Black Cat" personality template...
    DONE! Black Cat.txt has been successfully deleted.

    Jimbob fails to stabilize black cat after all the goblins around her are dead. :salute: A fine sorceress has met a most unfortunate end. DUE TO FUCKING SHITTY PATHFINDING :x

    Oh and Renegen got seriously wounded by that goblin leader but he stabilizes with no outside help! Truly an ubermensch of a sorceror!

    :yeah:

    [​IMG]
    BLOBERT hit something again, the end is nigh.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: Fucking lucky... gobl...

    :rage:

    Running Fox gets knocked out. I'll have Jimbob stabilize her ASAP.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: RAAAAAARGHHHH!

    [​IMG]: HOLY SHIT!

    That was fucking brutal, :incline: of BLOBERT!

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, Jimbob succesfully heals... Renegen. I didn't notice he had stabilized before this point :rage:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: Eww! You spilled all of his guts all over my clothes. That is not nice Mr. BLOBERT!

    [​IMG]: JESUS CHRIST MAN! How did you do that?

    [​IMG]: IT IS THE WAY OF TRUE BROS TO KILL SHIT LIKE THAT, YOU CANNOT COMPREHEND.

    FUCK! DID YOU SEE THAT?! GODDAMN INCLINE RIGHT THERE! Sadly there was no other goblin within cleave range. But still, that's our new damage record.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: BROS, I AM STILL OK. NO NEED TO PANIC.

    All that constitution paid off. Did I mention that we're playing with rolled base HP and on level up?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: Fear not lovely fox, with my healing skill you won't end up in a box!

    BLOBERT tried to whack the goblin, he missed and lost consciousness.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: I will save you my dear bro, after all you were not wounded by a fatal blow.

    Time to grab Black Cat's replacement, also we got a ton of loot from those goblins which needs selling.

    [​IMG]

    On the way back to Hommlet we encounter pirates. I hit avoid, they may not be crawfish or spider, but we have a lot of wounded.

    [​IMG]: Pause simulation. Send report to Primary Node. Inform Primary Node that we need a new specimen. Request that all nodes reach consensus on the matter, their input is required to proceed.

    Sending data packet... complete!

    That's it for the interlude.

    VOTE FOR A NEW SPESHUL CHARACTER OUT OF THE LIST IN THE FIRST POST. Other than Black Cat obviously

    Yeah, the Black Cat dilemma resolved itself. You have time until I get back (whenever the hell that will be) to pick a new SPESHUL character.

    BTW, if we somehow end up lacking new recruits to fill in vacancies, you will be able to submit a new character to be rolled.

    Well, if you'll run out of characters, put Pope Amole V in the stack.

    As for the special character I'll change my mind - this party needs either Hiver or Cleve since healing and buffs are really in shortage here.

    hiver will be much easier to larp, provides healing / divine magic, and just missed being in the party with the cat... sounds fitting to me :)

    No, you will be backstabbing crap because you didn't bother specifying what kind of build you wanted.
