Forget about cloudy sky, I'm not sure how you can live your life without the guy bottom-left-of-center.

Don't be so superficial. It's just too hard to show these people's personal qualities in their pics. It's all about getting to know them. And what comes thereafter. For evermore.

... you should know that. You've been a member for years!

... so what's your favorite kind of online quiz? Or what was your favorite kind of online quiz back then?

One of the results has a picture of me I stuck in there. Back when I looked like a cartoon dragon.

So I'm back, been a long time gone. I had some severe medical problems (I have 2 ruptured disks in my spine) and a variety of other horrible things I'd rather not talk about, but yeah, moving on from that. Hi everyone.

Welcome back, and glad you are doing better .

Things around here have changed drastically - itches is a responsible family man, I'm young and carefree, and everyone on the site has given up PbP for battling it out with our shiny new pixellated characters.

Or wait, maybe I just dreamed that.

After sort of falling off the world for a while I remembered about all the good times I had here.

And I come back to find it still ambling along, which is great.

It's BRR! Welcome back, you vanish-y guy, you.
... woah, that was eloquent.

Anyhow: What are you up to? Ready to do some rp? While it's still 'ambling along', there's only one game currently active that I know of - Gral's and mine. While fresh blood would be great for this site, old blood will do. We'll take what we can get. So get your lazy ass back into gaming. Hm?

BRR! You're just in time to watch us mess everything up as we try and do a server move.

Greetings all. Another fellow ORPer has heard your mental cries for some epic RP. Assuming the server move goes well... anyone actually up for starting something new or resurrecting an old epic adventure?

Just like old times.


I am currently on holiday but potentially my arm could be twisted to get back in on a game

Woohoo!

Also, I'm actually on vacation at the moment, so maybe the server move should wait a week or so.

*twists BRR's arm*

... I'll be on vacation starting tomorrow eve and will only be back online on the 19th. I'm optimistic that the server move will be successful (by then). I'll keep my fingers crossed!

I'm bored so let's play a world creation game set in Dishonored. (Spoilers for the first game and DLC)

I've noticed the start of a pattern and chosen to extrapolate it from there to make a standard build for Outsider granted powers. It works like this, the Outside grants a person three powers.

Basepower: Blink. Always Blink. Everyone can teleport.
Secondary: The power that gets passed on to your additional powered individuals.
Tertiary: The power that remains

In addition the Outsider blessed one can pass on their power, grant secondary lesser versions of their powers to people. These people only get Basepower (Blink) and the Secondary power.

So let's use Daud as an example. The powers available would be Blink, Pull and Summon Assassin. The last one requires a bit of tweaking in order to make it work correctly, in short in allows Daud's followers to use him as a lodestone for their teleporting, moving to his location even if it would normally be outside their range or out of their sight. In addition it allows Daud to send a telepathic "summons" to one of his followers, asking them to Blink to him.

Delilah works something similar. She has Blink, some version of Windblast which get passed onto her followers, and the weird ability to possess things made in her likeness (paintings/sculptures).

Granny Rags works if we push it a bit. Blink, a version of Vitality and some version of Devouring Swarm.

Corvo is where things get a bit more difficult, being the Player Character he doesn't have any followers that we can use as a baseline, plus he has a wide range of powers available to him. Blink as with everyone, and Dark Vision for the Secondary power as it's one of the more iconic abilities he can have. Lastly I'm inclined to goto Possession, because it's one of the rare abilities that Daud can't have making it a Corvo exclusive.

What do you think?

That's not the real question I'm putting out there, figuring out a way that works with established people is only the first part of the fun. Now that we have a balanced system we can use it to create new characters, in particular, you.

The Outsider has rocked up to you and decided it would be amusing to give you his mark. Suddenly you can teleport! What secondary power would you get that you could pass on to others? What about the Tertiary power that is yours alone?

You don't need to limit yourselves to established Dishonored abilities, you can pull from other places (Deus Ex works pretty well for this). Remember, the idea here is to come up with something that is balanced, not to create an uber all powerful god.

Me? Well Blink, because you have have it. Secondary would be a super strength-carry heavy object thing, because it would be crazy useful day-to-day. And third: Umm ... I don't know

No, those are text books. Your children are studying for school. Honest.
