Hi again, Ag!
Still using Arch Linux?
Not right now, no. I still have an old machine running it, but I've switched to windows out of convenience. As much as I may like Linux better in some ways, windows is the only way to go for gaming.
Kol, ZL and I have a Skype group we've been using to discuss things that need to be tweaked in-game if you want to join in as our other vet. Eventually I'll open it up to everyone else but right now it's primarily for discussing rules and stuff. I'm about to bring up how to deal with dual-hero units (like Twinmold) and figure something out in regards to that, so if you wanna give your 2-cents in regards to that add me (solseter1) and I can put you in the group
Oh, btw, we have been trying pretty hard to recruit people into playing Land Wars so we can actually have a full game for once haha. I dont wanna start until we have at least 10 of the 12 positions filled, if not all 12. So if you know anyone who might be even remotely interested, please either direct them to the thread or send them my way. I wanna get this started ASAP cause it's been wayyy too long since the last one
Sabbo, Spagh and Silver and Kae have all indicated they might be interested, though none of them are entirely sure they have time.
Yeah, I've spoken with Silver about it already haha. Let 'em know that they don't necessarily have to post every day; as long they can post semi-regular updates or wont disappear without at least notifying us, they are welcome to play
Foo planned on joining as well, but I haven't heard back from him
Aaaaaaa...how are youuuuu?! Long time no see.
Good, how've you been?
Well...um...I've had my ups and downs. You've missed a few things.
Yeah, that makes sense. I was gone for a pretty long time. What sort of things did I miss?
Wait, one last thing. Just elaborate on what shielding magic actually is, and what source you're getting it from (AzureCobra will be getting his magic from Wizzrobes, for instance). That's about all I have. It's just a bit easier for people to defend against/understand what it does. And I'm curious about where it's gonna come from, cause Alien magic sounds cool af lmao
The shielding magic is gonna be a little like the shields in Dune if you've read that. They stop fast moving objects, so most projectiles are useless while it's being cast, and melee attacks will be more difficult to hit without special training. It'll require a free hand to cast for balance, and of course uses magic, so it can't be cast indefinitely.
Where it comes from, I sorta thought it could be derived from the alien tractor beams? It's a bit of a stretch, but both deal with (presumably) magically altering the motion of objects in a pre-defined way.
Ah, so similar to what I did in OoT? Sounds good. If you could update a little spoiler underneath the magic (and any future magic you might add) so that others will know what it is. Is there a specific limit to how long it can be cast? Does it affect anyone other than the troop casting it? And can it be broken by enough force (say, a barrage of arrows repeatedly striking it or strong sword blow)?
Also, I don't like the line of thought that units can be "immune" to attack. Would it be possible that, while not immune to attack, Aliens are more resistant to certain forms? Like their skin is resilient to being cut, but they can still have a limb chopped off for instance. Or, they heal really fast so injured units that escape from battle won't count as a lost unit. Something like that. Immune to everything except arrows seems a bit OP imo, but if the other players are cool with it then it's fine by me haha. Other than that, everything else seems fine.
Yeah, true, that's probably too OP. It's accurate to the games, but it would be broken af. So, I'll change that.
Yeah, haha. We're doing something similar with the Gomess, because they are OP af as well.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the romani reinforcements are going to be a bunch of smaller reinforcements that take four weeks each, correct?
Yes, that's the plan.
You remind me of somebody I'm looking for, hmmmmm
Who are you looking for?
Me, myself, and somebody else. Did you really expect the Riddler to be so clear?
No, but it was worth a shot. Are you by chance Thomas?
Lol just me. What's up?
Not much. Just waiting for the next Mafia mainly.
Posting to your wall because the post you left on my wall takes too long to scroll through.
Okay, no Shift-Enter. That sucks. I did get the email, but I had to check my spam folder to find it. I like what you have going right now. It's great. (Also, these text boxes suck. Definitely need to bring that up in the ZU Beta thread.) The jab at my undead from the last kingdoms game was funny. I like that you've found a way to make robots only as powerful as normal bioforms. (What is that term from... I can't recall.) Ummm, what else... ah. Could you elaborated a bit on the "stealth tech" you're starting with? Is it just basic camo? Some dumbed-down form of active camo? That's really the only thing standing out to me right now. Oh, one more thing: how does the advanced cloaking function? What power makes it work? If the answer is magic, or science-that-might-as-well-be-magic, that's fine, I'm just kinda curious is all.
Remembered what I know bioform from. It's Metroid Prime.
The primitive stealth tech is essentially what I might term "Chameleon Cloth". It's just cloth that adapts it's color and pattern to what's around it. If you were looking for it, it would be very easy to spot, but it does make it a bit easier to hide in a variety of different environments. The advanced cloaking is, like most of my civilization's technologies, magitek. It's mostly magical, but with some technology mediating the process.
Oh, hey. Sorry for ignoring you, I didn't see this until just now
Hi so the answer to this is probably either "Oh crap, I've been found" or "No, what's that?" but is Mage of Space your god tier classpect?
Yep! Fellow homestuck, I assume?
Yup! Well, mostly. My exmoirail person ended up being an obsessive stalker to the point that police had to be involved. It kinda killed my love for it but Aradia keeps it going. I'm a Sylph of Heart by the way.
Oh, wow, that sucks. Are you up to date with everything after the gigapause?
Haiiii. Long time no chat.
I take a lot from anarcho-communism. I would prefer a system where individuals freely choose their own interactions, participating in mutual aid, without any money or trade due to the gift economy.
Hello, there. I just noticed that you are a part of "Anarchists Community". Would you happen to identify as an anarchist?
Same here. I just made an offshoot coffee cake to have with my coffee this morning. And I'm a Faroreian now.
How's it going?
Ok, gon' stick to that
[I]you will see the result
when smash 4 is released[/I]
Hey mr. Ag
I must draw you for a hidden reason
Tell me how to represent you
[QUOTE]Could use you guys help in the Zelda Elimination Game. Can you guys help me finish off OoT quickly? They're starting to gain ground, and we were so close.[/QUOTE]
Great. More fun for me.
alright, on it!
Hmm, sounds like fun. Link and Matt Smith were both in my dream last night.
It's a gift, I suppose, being that obsessed with something. What's up?
Haha I was going through some anxiety but now Im better :3
Thanks. Gonna try to start more here on ZU again :3

How long until we can post again? Five posts/1 hour, or three posts/1 hour? I've seen differing times =\
