  1. Obscure Werewolf Roles

    I'm accustomed to this being called Headhunter (and I don't recall what EM called it).
  2. What are you playing?

    Are you using a Nintendo-brand Wiimote, Motion Plus attachment, or off-brand? I was using what I'm pretty sure was an off-brand Motion Plus and stopped playing on the second dungeon or so because of how painful the process was. Always meant to pick up a Wiimote with built-in Motion Plus but never got around to it (and never really wanted to spend the money just to play Skyward Sword). I'd like to comment on A Link Between Worlds, but I only played it once on release and don't recall enough details to be entirely sure what you're referencing with various things. I found the dungeons a bit too easy/boring due to each one only being able to rely on a single item being in the player's possession, although they were otherwise well designed. It's also the only mobile Zelda title I've enjoyed, which is something. (Not that I've played many, but I disliked Link's Awakening and was never able to get into whichever Oracle game I briefly borrowed from a friend.)
  3. Obscure Werewolf Roles

    Thanks for the link. Going through it while multitasking today... Why have we never included a Nurse-type role? Simultaneously protects and disables the target. Is that stronger than I'm giving it credit for due to its versatility? Edit: This came to my attention a while back, but I didn't go very far down this rabbit hole at the time, but what about a mass conversion game with one or more players that protect from conversion? Or that reverse conversion (possibly in a Cult that doesn't reveal the original Cultist). Edit 2: Monkey is one of the most fantastic roles I've ever seen. Edit 3: Excellent. This was exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. Still interested in hearing more, and it's going to take a long time to sort through this in a way that will fit what I'm working to create, but it definitely suggests that my idea is very feasible. Assuming my core idea is good. I'll be having Rex look over it once he finishes checking SparkRPG.
  4. Obscure Werewolf Roles

    Could anyone remind me of as many weird/obscure roles as possible? I'm talking especially about the kinds of things we don't normally include like Millers. I'll likely pour over my unused SparkWiki notes at some point, but there was a lot of stuff I specifically excluded from those notes since they weren't interesting there. Edit: Or like The Fool, where when it dies it wins the game. I hate that role. But it's totally viable for the project I'm working on. Edit 2: And by Fool I mean Jester. I've now gone through my notes.
  5. POKEMON

    False Swipe Gaming on YouTube has been putting out some videos about individual Pokemon and how they've fared in the metagame throughout the generations. I don't care much for competitive Pokemon, but I've found them fairly enjoyable to watch.
  6. What are you playing?

    I recently replayed KotOR (and got partway into KotOR II before getting distracted). It's still good overarching writing, but it really doesn't hold up well. On mobile, I've been playing Transformers: Earth Wars and Digimon Links. TF:EW is a really slow-moving grind, but it's actually a really solid idea. I'd love a more fleshed out version as a full game. Digimon Links seems to be following the engines from the recent PS4 installments, and it's paced grindfest.

    Just give me another couple of weeks to launch SparkRPG's trial run.

      I'm here today. Not sure when I'll be back again. TKD is basically my evenings now.

      Taekwondo? Did you finally pick it back up?

  9. 13 Year Anniversary

    Happy Birthday Sparkbomb! We've hit thirteen years and still counting!
  10. What are your hobbies?

    I appreciate that! It'll probably be a few months before the next time I'm headed up that way. What part of Seattle are you living in right now? They did x-rays for me at the same time I went into physical therapy when I started on at a studio a couple years back. The right approach definitely seems to be working out/strength training for a lot of stuff, especially for those of us coming from a sedentary lifestyle. And it definitely takes several weeks/a few months to notice a difference. Have you tried chiropractic at all? What do you mean by subtle comedy? Like jokes that can go over someone's head, or something else? Those pictures are beautiful. It's really neat that you've been able to carry on a hobby your father had. That's an impressive number of people regardless. I'd been curious to hear what's been going on with Pokemon GO. It seems like most of my friends still playing it locally are doing it individually. What kinds of things have you made? I'm impressed that you were able to keep it up for a full (leap) year. We used to have a small artist community here back in... 2010 or so? Sadly, there hasn't been a SparkArt thread since the 2014 revival.
  11. What are your hobbies?

    No kidding. I ended up on a completely different trajectory from the one I was on back then. The Utah thing fell apart. Short version is that I went down there for two weeks in April, had work and housing lined up, but there were issues with work and so I ended up rejecting the job offer. With no Plan B in place, that left me here in Portland. I've since gotten a job with one of the studios here and expect to be here for the foreseeable future. I was up in Seattle a week and a half ago for a Zouk Congress. (That's the fancy name for a type of dance weekend.) Do you have back pain regularly? I think that's neat, especially for that last reason you mentioned about minor routine and progress. Gardening/plant keeping is pretty far from my interests, but I have a lot of love for any routine interest that gets to see results over time. Have you been doing much of this? I remember seeing you post quite a few random pictures on Facebook from hikes(?) or the like. What kind of films do you want to make?
  12. What are your hobbies?

    As months and years continue to pass, I'm curious what hobbies everyone is currently engaged in. I think that by now everyone knows that dance is both my hobby and career. I've veered away from video games and role playing. (I haven't done a text-based role play in years, and I barely do any tabletop/pen and paper role playing.) I also spend quite a bit of my spare time reading business literature, and I've become a bit of a fashionista as a way to distinguish myself in my career. Almost everything's tied up with work for me. Even my traveling is being done for dance events rather than for adventure/exploration. What about you? What do you like to do in your spare time?
  13. What are you playing?

    How is the remaster? A friend and I fired up Sonic 3 with Knuckles recently. Mostly just to kill time for a couple of afternoons. Got through Sonic 3 just fine with all of the Chaos Emeralds, but we botched the Super Emerald stages and then just couldn't handle that underground volcano/crystal zone.
  14. What are you playing?

    Yeah, it's a shame the 3DS version is missing one of the essential ingredients that makes the game worthwhile. Auhin's Thwomp level was pretty fun. Anyway, snagged world record for several of his levels and starred most of them. I probably upped the death count a fair amount since I was making a lot of risky jumps when I'm not especially good, but I also found the jumps the most interesting part of gameplay. That was one of the early (and beautiful) insights into programming, knowing that the entire underworld was on one screen (so to speak) similar to the overworld. I owned the DX(?) GBC version, so I only got to use the glitch once or twice on a friend's cart.
  15. What are you playing?

    Have you played Link's Awakening before? I don't think I've played it since fifth grade. I didn't realize there was a Mario Maker resource. It'll be good to have a reason to fire up the game. Also recently finished my playthrough of Ocarina of Time 3DS.
