    Yes the old GMR games on the forum.

    And so, it begins. Not quite sure if I caught Alice's personality well there, but she's fairly surprised, so hopefully it'll work out.

    That seems like quite the story there.

    After all, what sorts of rats and mice need firebreath to handle?

    Dire rats and ROUS.

    And he's intelligent enough, so Tifa bought him a pearl of language to take advantage.

    So, to expand on Alice's plan...

    She's basically suggesting that we wander through the goblin's area while playing music loudly. Since they're sure to come, we'll be able to talk to them.

    Oh I tried it. I really really tried it. But I'm not good at being overly romantic. I'm not good at it in german and no way I'm while speaking english.

    So... I have to change his attitude, his behavior. Or he is really shy and don't says to much? Don't know...

    Well... his behavior is more stereotypical pickup artist than romantic.

    Romance needs the right timing, and right setting.

    Formal meetings with the mayor isn't the time, or the setting. After we leave, complimenting clothing, or hair, or things along those lines would be less creepy.

    When I built him I had someone in mind who is flirting all the time. No female humanoid should be 'save'.

    But I let him sound like a ... Yeah, a creepy weirdo.

    Continuous flirtation can be done, but... it needs to be, well... positive.

    So, eyes compared to gemstones, hair compared to sun(Depending on the color), that sort of thing.

    It should also avoid diminutions, such as girl, dear, honey... things that seek to make the target of your flirting seem smaller.
    It also should be more... limited, and not forced.

    So, say, in your opening post...

    "Alice! You look wonderful today! Your earrings match your eyes perfectly!"
    Might have been a better option, rather than using ravishing(Which is very familiar, and very formal. "You look ravishing tonight, my dear!" Might be a compliment that a couple gives before going to a formal event.

    They should feel natural. So... I'd suggest writing it without them, and then thinking how a compliment, or a joke, or something could be worked into. Don't force it.

    A game thread isn't where I expected to find flirtation advice, but flowers can bloom through cracks and on cliffsides ...

    EDIT: IC, I'm getting my stuff that isn't in the saddlebags of a horse in the celestial realm.

    We are missing one fairly important bit.

    Persuading parents that we'll be fine to go.(Well, Alice might have a harder time of that, since her elven mother probably still sees her as a young child.)

    Yes, but parents might not view things that way.

    Alice, at least, still works at the tavern her parents own, and her mum, thinking in terms of elven childhood, almost certainly still considers her a child.

    And, well, parents, I've found, always like discouraging reckless behavior.
