    replied to You Know what I love MK I
    So, in the last bunch of months I've worked for a company we could say...I'm not exactly fond of. Not only a matter how it treats its lower ranks (though that's a factor) but more a general difference between my attitude and the one that drives things around here. All while trying to juggle it with the attempt to finally get my college degree and other important things.

    But hey, you gotta pay the bills, and a work you don't like is better than no work. Still, today I got an offer to work for an year with a humanitarian organization I applied for several months ago. I'd work less hours,...

  • Things in the last couple of months haven't been exactly easy, so when I'm able to write I must focus on priorities first. Wishful thinking says that by doing so there's a chance that might eventually grow into something bigger (and that's why I don't regret doing so and I'm glad I got that opportunity in the first place and still pull it off no matter what), but I admit that I did let you people down when it comes to forum content.

    Sorry about that, I mean it. I hope that life will eventually get easier and allow me once again to hang around here more often...

  • We might be circling the same stuff from different starting points, I personally find myself agreeing with your contributions around the board way more often than not. My "legendary" there has little to do with Beast and refers more to a general connection towards myths and legends. Dunno, I never got around to make a more "practical" thread, unless we're talking about those where I post about specific creatures or my Dark Era. Always thought that a sort of list of examples would come across as entitled or arrogant. After all, despite my aforementioned enthusiasm, I'm not a...

  • Oh, I completely agree. Well said, I think we do share a wavelength here.

    Calasso's work is metatextual analysis (well, to put it quickly. I don't want to make a disservice to his body of works but that's what it is when it comes to the dialogue we're having here), but it cannot be used straight as a tool in a Primordial context. It needs to be adapted. Or rather, as I like to put it, it needs to crush against the structure of Beast.

    Myths deals in absolutes and all kinds of analysis, both textual and metatextual, which deal with myths and legends takes those absolutes...

    replied to You Know what I love MK I
    This morning I went to a chidren hospital with a support organization my sister and I work with and, while talking, the RPG topic happened. I mentioned that I'd be willing to run small, easy one-shots for the kids with premade character, Pugmire (and Monarchies of Mau) being the games I have in mind. Just to let them have some fun and introduce them to roleplaying games.

    Now, I have zero ideas if and when this will happen (we talked just a little about it and, if it gets more serious, there are lots of things to take into account so it might turn into nothing), nor how to prepare...

    replied to You Know What I Hate MK I
    I fucking hate each time I see someone that uses RPGs as a vehicle for their own hateful beliefs. Not only referring to CoD and WoD (though given that they explore darker themes it's sadly easier for the games to be used for that), but to other games as well. What sparked this post has nothing to do with Onyx Path, in fact.

    It just makes me mad beyond belief when I read certain stuff and I just want to shout "no, these games are not about that and you're cherrypicking whatever fits your rotten worldview". I'm all for people with different opinions loving the same games,...

    Apologies for not having been around here lately. I'm working a lot and, when I'm back home, there's a variety of stuff that needs to be done.

    Since I feel bad about disappearing, this seemed like the proper thread to write this.
