Topics - Ailanthus

Pages: [1]
These are elements that are in very many games, and RPGs are hardly ever without at least a touch of them.

So, which games had success in these areas ?
Any love interests that you liked ?
Any romances that felt believable or especially enjoyable ?
What about times that you felt these were done... not so well ?

Share your thoughts on those you feel strongly about~

 :gsexclamatory: Warning: Spoilers are free game !
Kinda hard to explain what you really liked or not about a relationship if you're trying to leave important events out of the discussion.

While the thread is not for shipping discussion, some mentions are acceptable if you're trying to use it as an example of implied romance done well or something similar.
Also, the relationship need not be the main focus of the game or involve the main characters. Use whatever examples you want.

So, I'll start off by just saying it. I can't think of a single instance where I enjoyed these elements in any game I've played.
Not one case. I'm not without a favored ship or two here and there, but I just haven't enjoyed any attempts at romance.
I haven't fallen for a love interest, much less even liked them. Can't even think of one between side characters that I liked. (Though, hey maybe there was one. I just can't think of it.)
It's not that I don't think these can be done well, or that I'm vehemently against romance. (Though I started to believe that might be the case for a good while there.)
I just haven't.
So, guess I'll just be ranting about particular characters/tropes that get on my nerves.
Another thing about it all though. In RPGs, I don't think I'd dislike any of the characters I'll be going on about quite so much (if at all) if I didn't feel like I was being forced into a romance with them in many cases.

Suggestions / Slice n' Dice

About the only idea I've had that seems useful.

We could really use some kind of die roller around these parts.
Add some actual mechanics to RP that way, and even open up the opportunity to play lots of games together in that board.

RP seems to be totally dead these days, and even so, most fun-time battling just ended up being massive dodge fests of immortals.
I always kind of wanted to actually get into one of'em but always ended up having to drop out super early for one reason or several.
What better way to pursue that dream than to have a little new life breathed into the whole section ?
Any venturing out of the comfort of Soaktropolis is good anyway, right ? Could play some games there too with them dice.
(I understand that I may be asking for the impossible or the quite difficult, but hey~)

Something troubling you ?
Something got you down ?
Stressful day ?
Stressful life ?

In my time here, I've had issues that I've let bleed over into my posts, others have as well it would seem.
My self-esteem issues, are a regular problem for me, and while I might be projecting.
I'd say more of us than just me have problems with that, as well as other similar things like
 being lonely, depressed, or angry.
 Feeling lost, empty, or just a bit upset.

Even just a bad day is nice to get off your chest.

I have serious difficulty talking about these types of things with people.
However, I find it easier to share online.
Easier to articulate myself through text than through speaking.

Well, if you're reading this, you have friends here.
Feel free to post about what's on your mind.
In as much detail as you want/feel comfortable with.
This is a judgement free thread, meant for support.

Keep in mind, that you might not get a response, but that doesn't mean you're being ignored.
The very nature of things that can be posted here can just be difficult to respond to.

If you feel embarrassed, or that it's too difficult to share.
I suggest at least typing what's on your mind anyway, and reading it once or twice.
You don't need to actually post, but wording it out might help you sort things out in your mind.

I can also offer PMing me.
I can't guarantee that I'll say anything that'll help,
but what I can guarantee is that I will read it, and

I won't discuss what you PM me about with anyone else.

It's been two years.  :gsfrown:
I guess I got my stuff sorted out. I had a weird coming of age experience, but here I am.
I'm pleasantly surprised TLW is still here, as I found out GSR went down a while ago and heard it happened to a lot of GS communities and just assumed.
I missed this place.

How's errybody doing ?

 :70: Hey what's up everyone.
I'm back........ (I'm pretty sure I am at least.)

Been quite a while hasn't it?

Seems half of everyone has changed their names.  :gssweatdrop:

Leavings / Yes... I'm leaving again.

I have business that needs taking care of.
You know, money troubles and the like.

I shouldn't be gone terribly too long, it'll just be a bit longer than I usually leave.

Try not to miss me too much  ;)

( Oh yeah, I'll try and make it on for 27th day, but if I cannot someone issue my apology to Lord Neptune. )

Alright, I'm back. I told you it wouldn't be too long.
So what's up everyone?

I've been feeling pretty good recently and I might even be getting a new job... which is something I need.

Leavings / This is overdue. Sorry bout that.

I know, I haven't been around much lately, but now I plan on not being around for maybe a week or so.
A friend of mine committed suicide yesterday, and for obvious reasons I'd like to just get away for a while.

I guess see you later. I shouldn't be gone for too long.

(I'm quite certain this would be where this belongs.)
I consider myself somewhat of an amateur Philosopher/Psychologist. As such, I'd like to know a bit more about what makes you guys tick, what you believe, what you love, what you hate, and even what you regret.

So, what do you say? Will you take a seat on my couch and let me analyze you?

Alright, I have joined a forum...
....hmmmm..... I guess that there isn't much to say.
I get the feeling that I have come too late to the party...
.... Is anyone else still here? :gssweatdrop:
