I need things. Please post here with the following...

One word.


One picture.

Limit of one word and one picture per post. Don't go too crazy now. Keep the damn picture pg-13 you heathens.

These are totally for research and serve no other purpose so never you mind about things done/said/performed in the past. You shall conform.



Okay guys.

I need words. Give em to me!

One word at a time, please. (We don't need to make sentences out of multiple stacked responses either you scrubs)

You'll never discover my evil beneficial plans.

I'm not making cat videos~ (Youtube Channel Informational Gathering)

Alright, folks. With the new twist of the staff roster, myself and Eplipswich have stepped up to moderate the RMN Youtube Channel. First things first;

What RMN content do you buggers want to see video-ified?

We'll use this thread as a first measure to get an idea of what to focus on. Our plan is to get what you, the community, wants to see in video form. Post your thoughts here!

---> Here is the Youtube page for RMN! <---

The influence is too strong! (Illy LP's Darkest Dungeon)

Well I finally watched a tiny bit of Darkest Dungeon, a game I've had in my library for a while now - I can't wait any longer! So I decided I would start a new thread and invite people interested in being party members as I venture through the game much like how Liberty is doing! If you haven't seen Libby's streams of the game, I recommend checking them out - her original thread can be found HERE;

I haven't opened this game yet, and I only watched one of Libby's streams for a few minutes to keep that unknown factor so you all can witness me make all the same blunders Libby did on her first runs~

For those of you that want to party up, just check out the classes on Libby's page in the link above and post here with which one you'd like to play as!

What RMN Members do YOU want to work with?

I had this topic idea hit me earlier, when I realized how awkward it can be to just walk up to people and say "Hey! I think you're really cool! We should work on something together!" So I figured maybe I could start a thread here where people talk about which members of RMN they'd like to do some joint operations with either on a gam, or some other project.

I'll start off! Judging from what I've seen around the site (in both game design and forum/chat activity) I think I'd find a lot of fun working on a project with either Liberty, Unity, LockeZ, Ratty, Ziggy, or Jeroen.

I may need to expand on this list once I can remember everyone.

FF Class/Job based PnP RPG

Hey guys! I'm really surprised I haven't brought this up before, but I'm a member of an active community of individuals who play a game known as FFRPG SeeD.

This is the storage site of the game, and it's been well fleshed out over the last decade+. Game is run without the need of a grid (as battles are fought using a turn based ATB system akin to older RPG's), we use a diceroller program inside of an IRC webchat. The game is often heavy roleplay oriented, for those that love staying in character during these types of games. The IRC info is listed here: I personally just use the browser based IRC site Mibbit to access it.

Channel: #dockingbay

I'm surprised I never saw this opportunity to try to bridge my two active online communities~ I talk to them about RMN all the time, never thought about mentioning FFRPG here!

If anyone would like to discuss how this RPG plays, you're more than welcome to ask me or anyone in the IRC channel! I'll include a link to one of the sessions I've run for those interested in seeing how a session plays out.

-Pathfinder Adventure Path (Legacy of Fire) Gone SeeD!-
I took the published adventure path of Legacy of Fire by Paizo and converted it to a SeeD campaign, this link is to the first session!

[RMVX ACE] Bundle Stars VX Ace for 10 bucks :x

Hey guys, just noticed that there's an 85% discount on VX Ace on Bundle Stars~

Happy Gam Mak-ing!

[RMVX ACE] Use face graphic instead of sprites for save/load?

Hey guys, I'm trying to find a simple script that changes it to where you see the actors faces instead of their sprites when you load a saved game. Is it possible?

Sword Coast Legends!

Is there anyone else out there with this game? I'll admit I'm a Pathfinder player, but this game is amazing. I immediately became addicted to the DM Mode and have already put 12 hours into a now finished module.

To build a "Commercial Game Team" vs a "Free Game Team"

So with the end of my semester here, I have about a month worth of free time and I was considering the concept behind what it takes to build a Free Game team.

I'm sure a lot of us have had this problem before. You want to design a game with custom graphics, music, and sounds - but find yourself at the wrong end of the artistic stick. A lot of us have no skill in developing artwork or music for games, so we're forced to default on the skills of others in order to truly build something unique. In the case of the commercial game, it's entirely possible that you and the people working with you will make back the money you put into the game.

But what of the individuals who want to release a game that's free to the public with no profit of their own? This is where the difficulty of being a game designer with no inherent artistic or musical talent rears its ugly head. I understand that artists and musicians work hard on their creations and deserve to be credited for their work, but that all comes at the cost of the individual making the game and, to that end, simply costs them money that they will never be able to be credited for for their free release.

Now there's the obvious solution. "Simply get together with your artistic friends and build a game together!" This is a perfectly viable option, and the one I see most individuals shoot for. However, some of us aren't particularly good at making friends, and even so a lot of artists and musicians have a lot on their plate already. Another conundrum seems to be the minority that is artists and musicians; Does it make you a terrible person to try to make friends with someone in order to get the possible access to their skills you want to make a great game together? It seems like the skill of creating games via RPGMaker or whatever engine you want is exceedingly easier to master than being a great artist or musician, so the majority of them already have this skill at their disposal and haven't the need for an extra hand to utilize the program necessary to make the game with.

I know it doesn't seem like there's a lot of options other than to suck it up and fork out the dough to hire skilled artists and musicians, even for a free game, but I just felt like spreading this to you all as one of those worried individuals who doesn't want to spend the rest of his years using ripped resources in a poorly executed manner. (I'm not the greatest mapper out there) I come for advice or suggestions more than anything else!
