    Naaaahhhhh… people would totally never do that.
    Now just ignore me sliding this people-catapult under the carpet.

    (What I actually tend to find is people tend to get flakey groups online, so they try and get into any game at all in hopes one or two'll stick.)

    I have never actually done a pbp, if the DM promises not to quit I would love to try one (using discord as out of character maybe?)

    Why would you slide the people-catapult under the carpet when someone may well need it?

    I wish I had the chance to play in the offline world, but no can do right now. But I'm facilitating a Fiasco game (Pirate themed, arr!) at Ropecon, the Finnish rpg con this July. And I really hope I can get into a Cyberpunk session!


    Also, it'd of course be ideal to play a PbP where people have a relatively same time zone as me, but so far the players are all located in Canada and here I sit, in Finland, after midnight, with no sense of night as the greyish blue sky stares at me. Discord-game would be nice, but, hmm, Discord OOC would work with the players as they share a timezone.

    Er, I mean, I have never seen that catapult or carpet before in my life.

    Thankfully, I've actually lucked out with having a few groups that've managed to stick together, where we electronically GM for each other. So it actually manages to slake my thirst for games. And interactions with friends. Okay, that's a lie, I'm always up for more interactions with friends. I'm broken that way.

    Oh, neat! That sounds like fun. And good luck with getting into the game you want! I'm a large advocate of anything that has "cyber" in the name.

    We once built a catapult, us crazy 16-year-olds, in our scout troop. Jfc that was 10-11 years ago. We even got funding from the city for it. It still baffles me.

    I see we're having a wonderful ninja conversation...

    Fiasco is super fun, and I love facilitating it. I also tend to run my games in English, because well, there's foreign visitors as well. Couple of years back we had a dude from Colorado, and thanks to me watching Fargo I had caught a norn Minnesota accent. He was quite amused by it.

    If you haven't, have a look at Cyberpunk. It's so interesting, especially how it treats people when they get more and more android-like, losing their human parts, upgrading themselves with technology. And addiction. And stuff!

    Man, we're all just editing past each other here.

    Ouch. Yeah, I very much know the pain of having players not in the same timezone as you. It's not the best. Workable, but it does tend to slow things down. No frantic bursts of activity. I do highly recommend the discord, though, for OOC, even if you're only occasionally on at the same time. It really does do wonders.

    It's a small big world?

    Unrelated to that (but it just reminded me of) I recall visiting some place for vacation, when I saw a hat with a label for an (admittedly quite famous) tourist attraction back home. Took me a few moments to realize '...wait a second, that's not a normal thing to be seeing out here', and turns out the man and his wife were from England, and had visited Victoria a few years back. Had a neat little conversation.

    If you haven't, have a look at Cyberpunk. It's so interesting, especially how it treats people when they get more and more android-like, losing their human parts, upgrading themselves with technology. And addiction. And stuff!
    I've heard the general gist, but never actually looked at it in depth. I love, love, love that sort of stuff, though. Even if I do prefer my futures a little more bright and fluffy.
    (Dystopic and all can be cool, too. I'm just a sucker for bright colours, I think. )

    And lo, thus was the cause for the machine uprising. ...or, well, it would be, if the servers needed for the uprising's computations weren't overwritten with many, many pictures and videos of cats. Even this thread has begun to be a storage place for them.

    Data of cats is the preferable option by far.

    Generally, but it all depends. If you're lucky, you might not hit something vital. ...huh, sounds a lot like a human, really.

    Hmmm. I wonder what the average ratio for knives-sticking-in-to-cause-nonfunction is between computers and humans. For, uh, for Science. Purely for science.

    I feel like comparing a robot to a calculator is a bit like comparing sticking a knife into a person versus a shrimp. There's probably a few degrees of separation of some type.

    That's fair. Not that we'd want to do any of it. Besides maybe the shrimp, I suppose... I guess they can sacrifice some things for the good of dinner science.

    I haven't had this confirmed, but I have heard that lobsters were of once great importance to nerve studies due to their anatomy being easy to study for neurological purposes. Of course, said scientist would have a freshly killed lobster on their hands and more than one account exists of someone trying to invite people of their choice to lobster dinners afterwards...

    Huh, that's an interesting fact. I think I did hear that tidbit about lobsters being good for that kind of testing before, but not the note about the dinner. But... in retrospect, that makes very much sense. Dinner on the lab's dime, and all that.

    It all depends, really. Some systems are mostly wiring, fragile chips, and other assorted life giving things. Whereas robots tend to end up having a bit more 'dead space' in them, full of stuff that's happily resistant to getting stabbed by something so small. Especially ones that aren't androids. There are far better ways to build bots than fitting to the human form... but, alas, oftentimes things are limited by "aesthetics", "familiarity" and "needing to use stuff built for humans".
    (Okay, aesthetics is a pretty good human trait, I'll need to admit.)
