    Of curse it's silly and factually incorrect. But it's also just a stupid internet meme, it distorts history on purpose. It's exactly what you would expect it to be.


    Also, remember folks, since this kickstarter is over, we're now waiting for Pierre Begue's KotC 2 kickstarter. :smug:

    I'd much rather they put all the focus/resources on combat and other rpg systems and mechanics and make this a great game, and have competently done story, quest, and dialogues that enhance the game instead of trying to force a square game peg into the circle hole of trying to change a game into a piece of art work better served by a different medium.

    The immediate post-Kickstarter period can be kinda busy, especially when new writers are hired into the team (Casey and Scott) and contracts have to be worked out, etc. And now it's Christmas time where people are taking time off to spend with their families. I don't think the lack of updates is any reason to worry right now.

    What if you told me the artists, modelers, meshers, graphic people, animators, VO people, motion capture people, and the people deciding on what engine to use are different people? A game has a budget and a focus. Poring resources into x has an opportunity cost which results in y having less resources.

    It is not a coincidence that every rpg that is lauded for having a great story (like PST) had shitty mechanics and combat. And games that try and have both are slammed by the story-clowns because they hate having to think or try because it probably ruins their "immersion" for them (like with TTON).

    I want a great game and a great rpg. Being a great game (meaning game parts) and great rpg (meaning rpg systems, mechanics, and rpg related content) at this point seem to be mutually exclusive to what most modern kids on rpgcodex want. They want the great story, regardless if it is from an good game or a game with retarded child mechanics and barely any rpg systems or mechanics of note or a game with anything close to resembling an rpg. They want a story and are too dumb to realize games are the worst medium for this and the best stories will always use their strongest medium to be told (books, movies, shows, plays, etc).

    Story-clowns are to rpgs what SWJs are to science, politics, and civilization. The anathema.


    Edit - this is not saying this game will be destroyed by focusing on the story-clown group. But chances are if it gives me what I am hoping for and want (ToEE 2+), it will mean the story-clowns will have hissy fits like what they did with TTON, which had really good rpg systems, mechanics, chargen, chardev, combat, conflict, etc.

    If you need any more proof that "Infinitron" is actually just a bot that reposts stuff, look no further.

    If I put down Codex Troll Doll 2013 would it be offensive? Or a violation of using domain names or company names?

    Hi.

    wtf. WTF!

    A survey. Okay right thanks. Do you want to know how bad it is okay I will tell you just how bad it is I had to search for Jarl Frank RPG on google to remember the name of this game so many of us put money into and I found it but nothing! Why is this happen? Biggest game of Ultima like game and there is nothing here ont he biggest site for news about new games of RGB and leaving us with frayed strings dangling that just get smaller and smaller the longer they get because there is no news. When I followed other games from kickstart they had news to share you can just watch thema nd see but why am I here because it is time someone said something to many who are excited for this but nothing because all I hear is silence but I am not enjoying it no matter what the song has to say about it.

    This is insulting.

    Thanks,
    Sherry
