Alright, I've never played Symbaorum, so I wouldn't know. Just thought it was a nice solution to the people wanting mages who'd be free from mana points. Especially since Fria Ligan has used radiation as an accumulating baddy in earlier games.
So you mean that as long as something's been done you don't need to do it again? Like not making any more fantasy roleplaying games since that's been done before? Or not using elves, orcs, humans, halflings or any race that's already been used? That, my friend, is quite a weak argument.
Not the point at all, are you trying to be argumentative?
Corruption in magic is a very specific cliche, And if it's currently being done in at least two other games do you really want to use that again?
it's you grasping straws in your weak argument, (why not ask for clarification instead of filling with self serving assumption?, how is that a valid discussion?)
Corrupting magic = specific and narrow
Classic tropes = general and broad
Fantasy games = even broader
To put it simply, I like fantasy, and I like classical tropes of fantasy, I would just like to see something fresh,
Look, I've worked on projects where every ego manic wanted to leave their prints on the game,
They didn't give a shit wether it hurt the game or not, as long as they left a mark they would happily screw over the game,
It's very ugly, and destructive, and the project suffers
So when I say something about someone's idea sometimes instead of unbiased reasonable discussion, it bruises egos,
If that's the case you may be involved for the wrong reasons...
Harper, I'm not trying to stir up a shitstorm here on the forums, wouldn't dream of it. But from what I've gathered from the various threads you and I have very different views of the worlds we want to play in and the rules we want to use while playing them, and that's fine and just the way it should be. People have their own preferences and their own visions.
What I don't understand is how it is that in every thread you always seem to find a way to butt heads with other forumites through the way you seem to (seem to, I'm not sure that it's intentional) brush off everyone elses ideas as either stupid or inconsequential while your own musings are above judgement, lest you bring out the doomhammer and start blaming people for lambasting your person or call them psycopaths. You ask for a valid discussion, yet every time someone responds to you in a less than servile way you put the blame on them for being self-serving or misunderstanding your intention in very harsh words. How is that a valid discussion?
Let's just examine this shall we?
How much of what you have said is valid and how much of this is self serving bull?
When have I ever "brushed off" anyone else's ideas? (You think it's brushing off if I have a different idea?, that's your ego's assumption not fact)
When have I ever stated an idea was stupid or inconsequential? ( again, never have, any idea can inspire another idea, so even ones that could look dumb can serve a purpose, so again your ego talking not fact)
Show me where my "own musing" have been above judgement? (it's an open forum, and I've welcomed creative input, I don't expect anything I say to be used, but if it can inspire or help the game in any way great, I like helping, I'm not getting paid for this, I'm not looking for credit for this, don't need either, just trying to help if I can, so again, you opinion ego based assumption, not fact)
i will reply to anything I see as wrong, (you see, part of how a psychopath habits is to try to "character assassinate" rather than dispute the issue, to try to discredit while at the same time gain credit, they don't care about right or wrong, facts or fiction, it's just about feeding their ego, and hurting what they see as the "competition")
But I'm sure you will even try to make out this reply is being unreasonable, lol,
But show me just once anywhere that proves your assumption fact, sound reasonable?
