Hisashiburi,

I remember some good times with some of you, you may or may not remember me ofcourse.

Since this place is dead (and possibly haunted, look at those creepypasta posts everywhere), hit me up on skype or discord or whatever.

I know you guys still visit and check up on things every now and then. Even if there hasn't been a post in months, I can see your "last visited" counters. I completely understand why, this place has been a part of us and we will always come back to see if anything changed.

Even if we havn't talked before, I'd love to meet you, the reader.

I check in on these forums sometimes (Never been to AF) and I think we are slowly but steadily succumbing to madness.

I've been away for some years. Can I get some context? Are these your actual thoughts, or is this a troll?

I am not talking about just the dice.
There will be visuals, and you can walk around the map, or even teleport around if the DM allows it, etc.
What are other features you would want? I dont want the game to *limit* the things you can do during roleplay, I just want it to enhance the experience.
Thanks for the input!

Hello friends, long time no see!
Today I want to talk about roleplay sessions. Particularly the kind we do here on fighunter, by which I mean fantasy, sci-fi etc.
I am NOT talking about sexual roleplay, or any kind of roleplay that would get no benefit from any sort of mechanics.

We all know the DnD toolset. The kind of roleplay we do here on Fighunter would go well with such a toolset, while sexual roleplay would not. Noone wants to roll a dice to see if an orgasm was achieved, but a dice or random number generator is very useful for sword swings.

I think the kind of roleplay that would need mechanics is where it's a non-positive sum game. By which I mean, that something can be good for one person and bad for another. A sword cutting someone's head off would be very good for the one who swung it and bad for the one that got his head chopped off. This leads to metagaming etc, so a fair dice is welcome by everyone.

Now, I am thinking of creating some sort of game engine or platform where people can roleplay. I enjoy roleplaying a lot, but just plain text gets boring sometimes.

So my question is, what are features that you would like to see in such an engine? The most obvious ones that come to mind would be the game pausing entirely when anyone is typing a message. The DM being able to create custom maps and change anything he wants while the game plays out.
What are some common things you do in a roleplay session that you think could not be implemented into a system in a video game?

If you answer these questions, or just give your 2 cents in general, it will help me flesh out what exactly it is that I am even trying to make, and whether I should make it.

Love you, now post!

Would you (or anyone else for that matter) by any chance have the original fighunter game? The one where we:
-Were a human who started in a small city
-Could meet a pirate named Cap'n'Bob in the general store to join our party later
-Had to become a yalortian
-The game featured a card minigame you could play with NPCs
-You could get a ship that you could use to go to an island in the middle of the sea where you could harvest neon plumes from some sort of green birds.
-You had to eventually use some lingon technology portal thing to travel to "Butterfly gully" (Or maybe it was "Dragonfly gully")

I have swf files for Mardek (the old ones, before chapter 3 came out) if anyone needs. I dont know if they are still available on the internet.

Thanks

People trying to live up to a label is understandably annoying, but classifying things is a very important thing in science. If you do not classify, you will be left only with abstractions.

0) Since this bot had a fixed agenda, and insisted on prostitution (Parts of the convo I didn't paste), I will ignore the possibility that this is a bot that mines a database to find suitable answers by finding similar past conversations. Even in the extract I gave, the person never changed topics or wandered off.
Even if you do not agree with these assumptions, most of my arguments will still hold.

1) Bots geared towards scamming people, or sexting people (Which are the only two possibilities for this bot) would have absolutely no reason to insult their victims. It would counter the purpose of their existence, by offending the victims and preventing the transaction. Since no bot I know has ever been programmed with a sense of impatience, I see no reason for it to insult me and react negatively to being trolled.

2) The only possible scenario where a bot would use profane language would be trying to emulate "dirty talk", but then the dirty talking would not be directly insulting my mother, as this person has done.

3) Bots typically stay quiet when they do not know how to respond, and then they "re-initiate" the conversation, pretending the old thread of discussion is dead. The only time this one paused for a significant time was when it got "pissed off". When it did come back, it gave me the ultimatum to pay up or go away. It was able to give "acceptable" answers for all other queries.

4) From all I know, such bots are geared towards talking to a single person. *I* added the people to the conversation, which was not a move by Zanib. I find it very hard to imagine that she would be "prepared" to be able to converse referring to multiple people, since such bots are highly specialized for what they do.

4b) Infact, in the conversation, when "Agent S" was talking to her, she said "intercourse you, and your Agent L", which means she could identify that they are two different people, used the correct pronoun for the person she is responding to, and wrote my name as one would in the third person.

4c) She also used the word "your" in that sentence. "Damn you and your XYZ" is a phrase only seen when someone is frustrated. I find it hard to believe that it would be specifically programmed to respond that way by judging the mood. A typical bot would not use "your" there, as it would lead to a much much much more complex code with minimal gain in believability.

5)
[9:26:29 PM] Zinab: hello why did you say 12 months?
[9:26:50 PM] L: oops, I meant 21* years
[9:26:58 PM] L: I have been 12 months old in Russia
[9:27:06 PM] L: I used to live in Britain before that
[9:27:21 PM] Zinab: you have not accepted me as a friend

When she said "You have not accepted me as a friend", I had already accepted her contact request, so that cannot be what she is referring to. What she means by that is that I do not trust her with my information.
Why would she say that? Because the info I gave her is unlikely (James Bond, from Russia)
An ordinary bot cannot judge what info is believable. I doubt this was a supercomputer with a database full of millions of entries for "unlikely" pieces of info, social references and other social nuances.

6) It offered to cam ON SKYPE, not a third party website. Not typical of a scamming sex-bot.

It could be a scammer, but definitely not a bot.

Thanks for replying.

[9:59:10 PM] Zinab: intercourse your mother
//Bots don't insult

[10:02:10 PM | Edited 10:02:28 PM] S: We are the russian intelegence agency. What did you expect?
[10:02:36 PM] Zinab: i expect you intercourse your mum

[9:59:20 PM] S: Agent L, send the Task Force 137 to the location.
[9:59:44 PM] Zinab: intercourse you and your agent L

Those are not things bots can come up with.
