    Hi guys.

    Just thought I'd let all the people with suggestions know, the game is progressing, and should completed by the end of January.

    Once it's finished, I'll post a link for the downloading the game. I'll make sure there are save files near the jokes you've suggested so you don't have to wade through the game looking for your contribution (There's about 5 hours of game per chapter).

    Thanks again for the help, it's all making the game that much better.


    **Post Edit**
    Thought I'd add this conundrum I'm currently on...

    I can't decide about a possible love interest for the male human neutral evil fighter.

    One option is a dim witted female bard. He hates bards, and would have to ask a bunch of bards for tips on how to woo the gal.

    The other option is what appears to be a sweet naive Princess Peach, who turns out to be a maniacal killer dressing like Peach only to encourage people to trust her.

    These are the two gals in question (the Peach look alike only looks like this after she reveals her true nature)

    Personification, put up the question of who to use on various forums and fb groups, and the response was overwhelmingly "Stop being lazy and make it possible for the player to decide."

    To everyone else who's offered advice. Almost all of the jokes are now written into the game. Sadly Christmas/Family/BrandonSanderson'slatestbook has severely slowed everything down (also contributing to radio silence), but we're half way through the alpha, and hope to have a beta available in a month or so. I'll PM you all links to your various jokes then.

    I am honestly not sure to which question you are referring. Also, a belated happy Koloss Head Munching Day!

    Had this idea back in 3.5e...

    This one works off of homophones.

    Tales tell of the Great Wight Dragon that has terrorized the northern provinces. Entire towns and villages have fallen prey to this menace, and been utterly destroyed, or become the dragon's slaves. This draconic terror has been plaguing the north for years. Everyone lives in fear of the Great Wight Wyrm.

    Now watch your players prepare lots of Fire spells, protection from Cold, and other such preparations, as if fighting a WHITE dragon. When they get there, it's a Red Dragon (not necessarily of the Wyrm age category), with the Wight template applied. Still immune to Fire, btw...

    For some reason, I had thought this was for a tabletop game. I completely missed all this time that it was for a video game.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    During a storm the party rogue is accosted by a band of wandering monsters including a toad, a cyclops and a wolverine. It turns out that they were polymorphed, and used to be men.

    I do love the wight/white mix around. Sadly the game is in text, not voice so I'm not sure how to fit this gag in. I am going to try though.

    Sorry about the mix up. I wanted to post in this area as tabletop RPGers seem to have a lot more fun with wordplay than CRPGers so I figured the jokes would be better here.
    I did check with Mark Hall before posting in this area, and he said it was ok.

    That idea has some mystique...it's sure to be a real dazzler. Kind of a gambit trying to pull it off though. You could celebrate with a real jubilee when you do.

    She thought it was true love she had found,
    When a handsome young Centaur came 'round.
    But, one rule in the hay,
    And he trotted away.
    He was only horsing around.

    Sight gags are as good as any. :)

    Did you hear about the undead chronomancer whose castle on Temporal Prime was invaded by a group of nine different adventurers, but on handily defeating them all and instead of killing them, the wizard decided to give them really bad haircuts to teach them all a lesson.

    The headline in the papers the next day was, "a lich in time shaves nine."

    I once had a player order a bottle of Dwarven Spirits at an Inn.

    When he opened the bottle, 4 Dwarven ghosts spilled out and attacked.


    Although, I really feel like I should be suggesting the OP be at least skimming the Xanth novels ;)

    Thanks for that Fable. I've used accents to hide that type of thing before, but it didn't occur to me to do it this time.

    (There was a "Jade Dragon" who turned out to be a jaded black dragon, and a couple of other places)

    I am starting to run into a problem though... The game is getting saturated in gags to the point where it may start to kill the story.

    PLEASE keep the gags coming, but I can't guarantee I'll use them in the current chapter I'm making.
