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: Kudos Thread

Kudos and thanks to everyone who has helped contribute to the Chosen over the last several months, and really ever. It's a very strange and humbling feeling to see it again after 10 years.

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: Prolonged Absence, The Future of OpenUL

Congrats on your new role, and don't be a stranger! I have some idea of your contributions over the years, and tbh the community owes you a debt of gratitude that it can't ever actually repay. Thank you for your service, joo. xo

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: Overhauling an Old but Unique Teaching System

An overhaul here would be quite welcome. My personal perspective - I've played for 20 years or so now and as an adult with wife/kids/house/business etc., its difficult to justify spending much time on tasking, and I only do it because I have to, not because its an enjoyable gaming experience (no the...

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...

Re: Prime Drains

I think it would be helpful to understand these arts in a more accurate paradigm. Forge and recharge might be considered "Supply" arts, but they are not directly tied to essence collection, which is the primary mechanism by which house primes grow, which makes them strategic. The paradigm for unders...

Re: Prime Drains

When developing the House drain calculations, the original intent was to address the SM trap nightmare imbalance alongside prime draining, but the team couldn't agree on this point (this probably needs a unilateral decision, as frankly too many people are emotionally invested in it and/or don't thin...

Critical Failure

> Be me
> Attempt an impromptu Underlight thing
> Do a monologue + blood voodoo
> Kid immediately starts epic crying from other room
> Kid can't fall back asleep
> Kid has me watching my little pony in the middle of the night

Be careful with magic, those critical failures are the worst.
