Re: Thanks

Vicki,

Loved every interaction with you, and hope to see you play again. It is always great to interact with people like you, however briefly. Whatever you do, continue to burn bright. Cheers

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!

Re: Dreamstrike: A form of sacrifice?

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...

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.

An overhaul here would be quite welcome.

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...
