The site owner spouts white supremacist garbage and the mods react to my concerns by laughing at me. I'm not going to put up with a toxic community like this anymore.



Discrimination within the narrative

Racism is non-existant, as virtually everyone is one race anyway, with a (planned but not quite in the setting just yet) darker skinned desert race that, while viewed with some minor suspicion, are generally not discriminated against because hot DAMN do they have amazing trade goods. They don't show up all that often (they stick to their desert continent), but when they do show up people go "Oh hey, they Dusters are in town. What did they bring this time?"

This is still an example for prejudice - seeing any of the desert folks makes people excited because they think they have valuable trading goods.

Also, while you could talk about typical tropes associated with fantasy races, I don't think there's much about discrimination left to say.

I haven't dug much into worldbuilding yet myself, the only noteworthy thing that could lead to prejudices and such is elemental affinities found in my characters (with me wondering how far I should take it).

What Videogames Are You Playing Right Now?

@GRS: It's "pleas pet dog" not "please pet dog".

@Rine: If a game is crap, I don't mind not beating it.

I also got myself Stardew Valley a few days ago. The best part of the game is removing trees faster than australian forest fires.

What are you thinking about? (game development edition)

@Supersonicsoda: RPG Maker MV is pretty good for that if you use plugins. Just make the robot parts equipment (make it so that the robot's base stats are all 1 so that it needs parts to function) that can grant skills (like being able to use a fire skill when equipping a flamethrower). The crafting part is simple with the item synthesis plugin by Yanfly - stronger upgrades can be gated with better materials or recipe books.
i dont have MV but i actually went looking for scripts to do something like it in ace. i found some cool things, but now the question is more finding time to work on it

Well the traits list exists in Ace, too, so making skills dependent on gear is still entirely possible.

pianotm doesn't know where Liberty lives.

The monster list from Myths Here's a bunch of monsters for the people who like to turn japanese.

Elements play a big role in RPGs, so I'll try gathering some elemental groups:

4 Element System

Si Xiang (China)*

*Though you can work the four elements here, the original actually uses the Wu Xing, in which Qinglong represents wood, Baihu represents metal and the Yellow Dragon represents Earth.

Elementals (European)

Pancha Mahabhuta (Hinduism)*

*adds Akash, which represents Ether.

Zodiac Signs (Western)
Aries, Leo, Saggitarius
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo

Several myths also add a fifth element - it usually represents the intangible, the things outside of human understanding and is usually named something like void or ether.

Other elemental systems:

Wu Xing - Fire, Water, Earth, Metal, Wood
Taoist Elements - Fire-Water, Heaven-Earth, Mountain-Lake, Wind-Thunder
Periodic Table of the Elements - Don't make me list 118 elements here.

What Videogames Are You Playing Right Now?


e: it's Undertale

Pet it more

Dark Souls III -> Bitten by the hype?

Well, Dark Souls felt kinda mediocre to me after some time and getting killed by a hacker completely ruined my fun. Not really looking forward to play Dark Souls ever again, maybe another game in a similar style, though.

InfectionFiles is a hallucination induced into everyone by the use of chemtrails.

let us not forget about the whore-attracting nature of lemons

If you try that, you better be baptized or things will turn out very bad for you.
