Role Players Need No Rules

September 23, 2008

Roleplayers need no rules.

If someone tells you that you are not roleplaying correctly, you tell them to shove it. Over the last 10 years of online gaming I have learned that even logging into a game is an exercise in roleplay. They are not called “mmoRPG’s” for nothing.

But, as someone that has made rules for himself, (called my Immersion project , now called my Station Project to represent the Station Access games) I can tell you that rules are handy, but never something to obey no matter what. I made my rules to help me feel more connected to my character, not to give me less options. They were made to make my real life feel something like my characters life, and vice-versa, and the rules have nothing to do with other people.

Delicate Minds.

September 23, 2008

The merchant was being smart with me, and we both knew it. I had to keep playing the game until I got what I wanted.

“So you have seen him, or not?” I asked.

“Of course I have, which is a more expensive matter.” he said.

I sighed. I reached into my pocket, pulled out a few gold. His hand shot out, palm up, fingers motioning. I dropped the gold into his calloused filthy hand. “He was here buying supplies. Seemed to be in a hurry. When I asked him where he was going, he told me he needed to get to Tawar Galan  and wanted to know if I knew any ships to gain passage on.” “And what’d you tell him?” I asked. “I told him no, and he went off to the docks. Later Meliard told me he gave him a lift to Tawar. From there, I haven’t heard anything else.”

Satisfied, I flipped my hand at him and left.

The Immersion Project is now the Station Project!

September 12, 2008

I have decided to change the name of the “Immersion Project” to “The Station Project.” There are 2 main reasons for this change:

1) I am sick of seeing the word “immersion.” Like I said the latest podcast, I know I didn’t popularize the word, and I certainly didn’t INVENT it, but it’s similar to when you get a new car: you start to see your car everywhere.

2) I am opening the project to other games on the Station Pass…which include a lot of games. The rules will be tweaked for each game, but over all the call is for all the games to be united under one “alternate realities” type of banner.

The city is a dirty place.

August 31, 2008

The best thing about a rainstorm in the city is the aftermath of cleanliness. For a few days the stink and dirt is removed, replaced by cooler air.
Khal was not a favorite stop, but a needed one. The only thing that made it worth it was the Tavern, and a small Raki girl that lived in a room upstairs.

My new bow, so pretty…

August 31, 2008

So I am able to get in game on the “old” pc (which was the newer PC last week) and I haven’t lost connection.

JUST TO BE SAFE I am playing on balanced with a few things turned up. But it’s playing great, 40-50 FPS.

Anyway, I’ve been doing quests for the Ancients at the Shrine of the Ancients. They are this strange race, and look like a cross between the good and evil creatures from the Dark Crystal. I am loving the quests and the lore they have given, and have ran into some group quests, so I need to get a group together to do ‘em.

Anyway, one of them gave me this bow:

I know, I know. It does some decent damage but doesn’t have any effects. But man, I got it and it looks awesome, and it’s MINE. I was more excited for this bow than I have been better pieces. And they gave it to ME, and no one else.

Well, except the other players that did the quest! lol

But I love it, it looks beautiful and is MINE. I need a good name for it.

July 22nd, Nothing bug FUN!!

July 23, 2008

A heads up: I don’t write walk-throughs, I walk visitors diaries. I’ll give you a basic idea of what I saw and did, but I will not tell you what exactly I DID do. That’s for you to discover!

Also, visit THIS POST to see some more talk about the area!

So after leaving behind the perma-death part of my experiment, I have been rejuvinated with adventuring spirit! It has been so fun to get back out into the world, run some quests and to do some more skinning and reaping, and doing all of it backed up by rules that are so ingrained in me now that I can’t play anyway else!
