Ra'as Farewell For Now and AMA <3

Hey everyone, I wanted to do a proper OOC farewell here, as I'm currently engaged in a full lifestyle change which includes moving the family + starting a whole new career. It will be quite a while before I am able to fully participate in Underlight again, and as my kids are getting older, they are ...

Re: Well, this is awkward

Hey Varik, Thank you for joining us while you did - It was great to have you around and I could tell you enjoyed yourself while you played. Don't trouble yourself about real life coming first - That's the way it should be. I had a great time interacting with you, and I hope it was a fun experience. ...

Re: Absence Board

Hi all,

My presence is extremely spotty over the next few weeks. Just sold our home and working on our next move. That being said, I am scheduling some committed times to be in as I thoroughly enjoy all that's been going on IG. Thanks for your patience, to anyone who is left in the lurch xo.

I support the exact opposite of the above, though I respect Silver's opinion. Please keep doing more of this style support, its super fun. It's actually a very enjoyable and entertaining execution and it hasn't felt like there is a guaranteed ending being forced on anyone. As for the GM powers - Ple...

Twitch Streaming

Hey yall,

A bit new to streaming, but giving it a go: https://www.twitch.tv/sporksco

Two UL videos earlier this evening, which included a fun DM fight (thanks GM's)

Do subscribe and all that, if you like that content. I'll be doing different stuff on there.

Cheers!

I generally agree both with Lu's points, and Dakkoth's recommendation (though maybe that's a separate art?).

Re: Dreamstrike: A form of sacrifice?

[Redacted to be nice]
Ultimately this is an identity issue. The GM's need to decide what type of game Underlight is, and then stick to it with some consistency.

OOC: So what are we doing?

Hey fam, 1) Was the dreamstrike a termination? 2) If so, what was the offense(s)? If not, why not just say so? 3) Should we expect every character death to be done with less time and effort than a Push task? 4) Was the RP team involved in this decision? Did they agree with this? Why or why not? 5) W...

Re: Roleplaying Tips

Great tips, Arnaya. I'll add one: Make a character sheet! Utilize Dungeons and Dragons if you want a good starting point. Don't limit yourself to physical features - Expand into preferences, strengths and weaknesses, overarching motivations. If they are adults, they might have some well-developed th...

Crowdsourced Marketing via Social Media

Hey fam, In an effort to boost awareness of the game, it may behoove some of you, who are so inclined, to utilize social media. The Gm team has done a bit of this over the last year with youtube recordings and live streams, etc. but efforts coordinated by players can have greater impacts than centra...

Re: Looking for ideas for something I want to do

The Alliance of the Eclipse more or less serves this function, with varying levels of intrigue/political/science things that aren't violent. However, Underlight's environment isn't a single player game. The person you describes will almost always be disappointed by their expectations, because they a...

Re: Houses

Some thoughts to chew on: Most of the interactivity between houses (polarity, disposition, priorities etc) is simply in the hands of house leaders. In real life, nations/tribes etc can manifest variations of the same beliefs over time and place. Think about Christianity in 1990's Illinois vs. Christ...

Re: Bleeding

I have created a visual aid to help better explain why the conversation around Trap continually fails to address its imbalance: It's not a tactical art, its the only art that directly impacts essence/hour intake in the house primes. Arguably Drain can be in the same category, with the caveat that yo...

Re: Bleeding

Cool idea, and there should be some difference between poison and bleed.

*That being said the SM strategic imbalance on Trap NM needs to be addressed prior to any tactical art changes, imo.

Re: Prime Drains

We ran the numbers a while back and no focus is anywhere close to SM essence/hour. Feel free to post the numbers you guys get but again, we're dealing with a very clear strategic imbalance - Not a tactical or supply one, and the implications of that are very large. I understand the benefits/drawback...
