How about a competitive storytelling game where each player is a she-creature tied to a specific location, competing with the other players and with NPC antagonists (like kingdoms and religious orders) for control of the map/world by managing their harems of beguiled/bewitched men and sending them out into the world to spread their influence?

For instance, as the Mountain Witch do you send the Black Knight, the princely warrior you ensnared through enchantment and have corrupted into your murderous champion, out to lead an army of the monsters your demense generates out into the world in a more unorganized fashion most of the time, or do you keep him close at home to protect you from adventurers? And what if his antipathy towards the minstrel you have under your spell, managing your finances, ends in a murdered minstrel and the harem being over-budget?

I don't know if the setting is all that great. The story and plot is pretty much non-existent and most of the exposition or whatever is found in the form of easter eggs. The game is difficult, but lacks much depth. The art style is mostly just generic, with an occasional exception.

It was bizarre hearing Sandy from As Time Goes By in a game, as well as so many other voice I vaguely recognised from years of British tv. I recently found out Knight Solaire was in The Bill for twenty years, alongside at least half the rest of the Dark Souls cast at one time or another. Dusk of Oolicile was in Grange Hill. Ingward was Gorwen the Dragon in Look and Read's "Through The Dragon's Eye". None of that means anything to anyone outside the UK, but it made me weirdly happy. Logically I know it's purely because they've got so many English actors, but its still seems really odd hearing them in a game for some reason.

Incidentally, this is what Priscilla looks like in the real world. She does a quite a lot of audiobooks.

Dark Souls was mentioned in this thread and I needed to make sure nobody mistook it for a decent game.

Dark Souls is the most poorly designed game I have ever had the misfortune to play. It was a chore all the way through. You spend hours learning all of the dozens of enemies' attacks so that you know how to run past them because defeating them gives almost no reward and fighting them is a waste of time. Then you get to a boss and die once or twice before you figure out where to stand to take 0 damage for the entire fight. It took my first character over 10 hours to ring the first bell. It took my second character maybe half an hour.

Then you try to explain to other people why that's poor game design and they just throw a huge variety excuses and insults at you because they think playing Dark Souls gives them a huge e-peen.

Why do people feel the need to write stories with a sad ending? It literally flies in the face of fantasy storytelling that's been established for something like 6000 years. The first written story by mankind, The Epic of Gilgamesh, was an idealistic story about larger-than-life heroes that portrayed all the virtues of their time.

So why now do people write stories where everything goes horribly wrong and ends in tragedy? Even traditional 'tragedies' have some light at the end of the tunnel; by their death, Romeo and Juliet allowed their families to stop fighting, just as an example. Stories like this Anon wrote are just pointless.

Stories are meant to inspire and entertain. They are meant to drive us to great feats, to emulate the heroes, they are meant to warn us from evil and lighten our spirits, not destroy them and shatter dreams we have of a better future.

And above all else, people don't like reading sad stories. When the dreams we have are destroyed and the characters we love killed with no bright spot, it doesn't feel good. It defeats the purpose of the story; to entertain. Further, as this is a fantasy story, why not make it idealistic? It's not like the real world, where you EXPECT things to go horribly wrong; in a fantasy world where anything is possible, why can't there be a happy ending?

Because sad stories evoke Dem Feels. Not necessarily quality writing, but I never claimed to be doing literature here, and it's easier to do all-bad-end rather than trying to temper it with some light-in-the-dark stuff.

Also, because I was trying to suggest that any of the random villains a PC kills might have it's own story.

It's gotten better now that they nerfed the fuck out of the ninja ring. Now you need less than 25% capacity to do flips.

The PC version is still a tad glitchy though. I've been in a few fights where I go backstabbed but instead of doing any damage the other guy just kicked me.

I'm thinking if I were to run a fantasy campaign, half-human, half-dragon, and half-dolphin creatures would all be relatively common.

Thanks /tg/. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I've had enough gloomy and depressing stories lately.

Also nice..! In a slightly strange way, but whatever, so long as everyone's happy!

...Cool? Eh, so long as they're happy (smitings will occur in the case of evil plundering of the surrounding land however).

I know not everyone like happy endings, but I'm just going to go ahead and stand by my position. I'm not a fan of stories that just leave the reader depressed. How is that fun? Then again, I don't understand how pain = pleasure either, so there you go.

Bittersweet endings is better then just flat out bad ending.

>> No.21347113

I think bittersweet/bad endings are just for feels. No one actually likes seeing a character the like get shit on and die, but if you can really empathize and feel for a character, (like, for instance, >>21336270 , both endings, for me,) the emotions bite a little harder when you understand their pain and share it.

>> No.21347617

Very, very much so. I can understand empathising with a character through hard times and feeling for them when they're suffering. but who wants to ultimately see all their struggles come to nothing and to just leave them broken and in despair? It's just depressing, not entertaining, which is what stories are; entertainment.

>> No.21347637

What makes you think that all of us turn depressed by a sad ending? I bet some people enjoy a sad ending because it puts them in touch with feelings they neglected.
