  1. So... how dead are we?

    If we want to be social tech-trendy, we could start a Twitch or Discord.

    This seems...fun? (I still don't own a DS) Also, waiting for my Pokemon Snap remake...c'monnnn
  3. Tabletop Games

    Depth? Not really. These social deduction games (Avalon, Resistance, Secret Hitler, Deception in Hong Kong, Ultimate Werewolf, etc.) are for what they are...social. They exercise your social cues in being able to tell if someone is lying or acting suspiciously. I always feel there isn't too much logic that goes into it, but it really depends on the group you play with. I have some groups where 1-3 people tend to be vocal analyzers in everything and try to sway the mass over, regardless of their alliance. I also have groups that tries to give everyone a fair share in speaking their mind. My favorite is Secret Hitler, honestly. I feel it is more structured and after a couple of plays, people know what to and not to lie about...maybe. In other boardgaming news, my weekly group is addicted to Pandemic: Legacy. We just finished May and it seems like it is a good weekly continuation game that is played through once, but can easily rotate out players.
  4. Driving experience

    As far as self-driving cars, I know they are already working on technologies for self-driving trucks/semis as well. I definitely that will help make the roads slightly safer (an AI doesn't necessarily have to worry about falling asleep at the wheel or human error), but I am concerned about security and hackers into these self-driving AIs. The other thing with driving today, is texting and being on the phone while driving. That is a completely different wrench thrown into the driving world and I am glad to see there has been more promotion to not text while driving or even some cities are giving out tickets if you are caught texting and driving. That is what worries me the most, and I, too, have to remind myself to get off my high-horse of "oh, I can glance down to check my phone for a few seconds because I have driven well before" and just not look at my phone until I reach my destination. I tend to drive more carefully and defensively the older I get. I am less afraid of using my horn to honk at people. Do you listen to anything driving to/from work? I know that can affect my mood in traffic as well. Some of the morning talk shows can make me annoyed even more at traffic.
  5. Werepodcast

    I hosted a WW game probably 10 years ago where I had players to choose their own alignments as well. It ended balancing itself out okay. I think everyone overwhelmingly wanted to be baddies.

    I watch False Swipe Gaming for the educational videos on each Pokemon. His voice can get a little monotone, though.
  7. You're in good company: I don't do very well in water either. Thanks for bringing up diving. It was something that had crossed my mind but that I'd forgotten about. I feel like we don't see enough underwater sections in games (or when we do see good ones, it includes the crap encounter rate of Pokemon RSE). I also do not swim well. I can't even tread water. But, since I plan to eventually complete an Iron Man sometime in my life, I guess I have to buck it up and learn how to swim...one day. I have to wonder: would skydiving be fun in a virtual setting? I feel like we'd need full sensory VR (ie holodeck) for it to really be enjoyable. With our current technology, it's just a view. Not that I'd entirely mind that: I love a good view. Have you tried one of those "indoor skydiving" facilities? I always drive by them, but I assume they will be fun with no risk. As for myself... -Cliff-diving (goes along with not swimming well and fear of drowning), but the scenic view looks beautiful -Shark cage feeding -Skydiving from some ridiculously high location like the ISS -Bungee-jumping into a canyon -Hang-gliding I just want to fly around in scenic locations.
  8. So... how dead are we?

    I check in every once in a while, but not participating in S:MS.
  9. What are your hobbies?

    @InuyashaOhki The Pokemon Go! community in my small town definitely is back to being alive after the gym revamp and the raids launch, especially the legendary raids. I have been able to coordinate with my regional Discord group and we have a pretty good turnout for a town my size. Although, we are experiencing a bit of "raid fatigue" now, so it's been pretty quiet recently. I am enjoying connecting with other PoGo players on Discord and having that community aspect back again. I raid about 2-4 times a week in between work lunch breaks and evenings. My hobbies... Running - My town has started a running club for the mornings, as I have been very, VERY lazy last year, so trying to get back into it. I use to run half-marathons every other month, but now I'm working on speed and hoping to get my half-marathon time down to under 2 hours. It's great to be running with a group and on Fridays we do some HIIT cross-trainings, which works muscles that I never knew could be that sore before. RedditGifts Exchanges - I like giving gifts and honing in on my skills of finding the perfect items for a stranger across the Internet. Makes me happy to give, though I do have to watch my budget. Handlettering & Modern Calligraphy - Working in the creative industry and a company based on greeting cards, I am fortunate to have been trained in handlettering and my company provides workshops to hone in my skills. So try to letter on and off when I can. My favorite tools have been brush pens and black Crayola markers. Tabletop Gaming - I have a group that meets every Thursday night at a local coffee shop. We usually play Board Game Geek's hottest and up-and-coming games as the leader usually has those on hand. I have learned a TON of games and there's a good staple of players that come each week. Video games don't appeal to me as much (mainly because of the perceived time commitment), but I like the more "in-person" social aspect of tabletop games. Other than that...I haven't gone to any conventions or cosplayed much recently. I do miss it, but it's not as big of a draw to me as it use to be.
  10. Vote: Rift @RocktheFox I am a non-combatant...though, if you have a way to make me fight again, I won't refuse!
  11. I have nothing to share either. My role doesn't find information. Umm...I guess... Vote: Rift
  12. I still have my role and powers...I just can't fight as a non-combatant. Unless, someone has powers to restore me to combatant? I assume Red would inherit Zodiac's role, unless there's a specific "martyr" role out there, aligned with a specific team. As far as my innocence goes and the name you found, I can confirm that is my name, but it doesn't necessarily prove my alignment as I am lead to believe that there are some thematic names out there according to the setting of this game. I am on a team, but I don't know my team mates. I assume there are a more than one team floating around too. I don't know if the "baddies" know their team or not, but my thoughts on the game set-up is that each team is out for themselves and maybe have to go find each other? At least that's what I picked up from my role. Vote: Red Interested in his powers...mostly.
  13. Hm, maybe not mess with Red tonight. I feel like the more he meditates...the stronger he'll get. If he battles, he is likely forced to use his powers and spend his points, but he might have a different condition than us. Unvote: Red Vote: Rift
  14. I, too, am curious as to Red's powers that affect his combat... Vote: Red
  15. Doesn't that just mean I hit like Lixyl? Is that really a positive thing? Not sure what a Lixyl is...Google isn't doing me any favors. As far as voting, I don't know what to conclude from the first match...possibilities: 1. Sinical and Red are on opposing teams and coincidentally had matching Power Levels. 2. Sinical and Red are on the same team and discussed what Power Level each need to be at to end in a draw. Also, noticed that no one gave support to either Sinical or Red. It could just simply be too early to use powers without testing the waters as to who in this game is strong or whatnot. Or they don't want to reveal their teammates this early in the game. Randomizer vote says... Vote: thezodiac Will change if there's any evidence that comes up later, but it looks like we are randomly pitting people in battle until something comes of it?
  16. The odds were definitely NOT in my favor. Okay...if Rift hits like a polar bear, may I float like a butterfly.
  17. Ah...so the first two rounds of voting seems to be with little information. Tomorrow's voting will be better influenced, hopefully. 4-way match, eh? BRING ON THE RANDOMIZER. *rawr*
  18. Wait...so we not know the results of Match 1 between Sinical and Red? It looks like the matches are slightly delayed behind the voting for the following match. Do we even get results as to who supported who or what? I'm guessing that's all private and behind-the-scenes. For the case of self-preservation and trying to tie up the votes... Vote: Rox
  19. Here! Interesting set-up. So voting doesn't guarantee "execution", but gambles two players of who has greater power + supporters. Well, let's get reaaddyyyy to rummmmblllleeeee!!
  20. Cardwolf Signups

    Ugh, oops. I was out vacationing today and forgot to check the game. Thanks Inu for hosting and making it work with such few players. Definitely interesting to see the One Night game translated to forum WW. Sorry that I was terrible in the last round. I am interested to see this played again with more players.
  21. Cardwolf Game

    Somebody jailed me...wasn't able to disable Sinical. Um, I guess I'll think about between Rift and Sinical and will vote tomorrow. Might be down to a coin flip. Maybe not? *nods*
  22. Cardwolf Game

    I guess if we are only revealing one role this time around...I'm the disabler (again).
  23. Cardwolf Game

    I jailed Rift last night. If he's worst innocent, then he will not get points if executed. If he's Jester, then he will get points. If he's Wolf, we get points. I guess it's probable for Rift to be Wolf twice in a row due to such few players Vote: Rift
