apophys reacted to Chewett in "The Warden"
It is an interesting idea. It could work but it would need to work alongside other roles since there is not enough people in jail.
To those that worry about people being subjective.
Everyone is subjective, some people can remove themselves from the equation and make them appear fair. However generally this means they are unfair to themselves but this is generally tolerated.
It doesnt matter that there is no one who is absolutely fair becuase thats impossible.
In short, ignore those who tell you the role is pointless as you cant find a fair person, they are being naive, we have given many more important and powerful rules to those who are considered biased.
And please people, dont just shoot down an idea becuase you dont "get" it, its rather rude.
I spent a decent amount of time coding a whole new "punishment" interface for PoE for her dream role which includes punishment such as stat damage, temporary bad effects and similar. Repurposing a similar item could be interesting to see.
I like the idea, sounds pretty cool.
apophys reacted to Aethon in "The Warden"
With the new "rules" (if that's the correct term to use) about respect and such I'd like to propose a new method of "punishment" or "law enforcement" for those cases where a "resolution" can't be given.
A title that should make even the strongest of players tremble at it's speaking!
This person would work alongside judges to make sure the fate or punishment of a player is carried out. The main purpose of "The Warden" would be to transport prisoners to and from the prison. Once there, The Warden oversees their stay and has "control" over them - like how dream weavers may have control over those they put into dreams.
Behave badly, try to escape, throw abuse or generally upset/annoy The Warden, or anyone else, and you'll face the wrath. This could be a longer conviction, lowering of stats, etc. Behave well and show repentance then perhaps your life will be made easier and you'll be spared some time. The Warden (is the name and the big bold lettering scaring you yet?!) would have no say in the punishment of a "criminal" until they are in their domain. Small alterations to their time (a few days - a week) could be granted by The Warden but for larger alterations/punishments The Warden would have to confer with the judges.
Obviously, as this role would be (what I assume to be) an "official" role there would need to be some monitoring involved to ensure The Warden was doing their job correctly. Like in all prisons The Warden would be given a little leeway as to how "rough" he can be with his inmates (*) but should also keep a level of dignity and respect.
This idea would allow for real cases and punishments to be taken into consideration, enforcing the rules of "respect" through the public/judging body, rather than expecting Mur or Chewett to deal with all cases thus allowing them to concentrate on others matters.
This is merely a brief description of the idea I've had in my head since the announcement and, as always, opinions are welcome. I would ask however that we try to keep ideas constructive and NO FLAMEWARS (I add this as it seems these "flamewars" spring up as randomly as spots on a pubescent teenager!)
Beware "THE WARDEN"
Thanks for reading,

Sooooo, after some time of struggles and indecisions, I've decided to draw Witty :P
Premise : That's not an evil look, I've just figured you as a brave woman ready to guide newbies and oldies to the right path.
It's almost summer but I couldn't get nothing out of my mind than a winter look.
I hope it's not too sketchy
apophys reacted to Witty in Imagination Quest! (WP)
I'm not gonna participate (for obvious reasons) but I had to join the fun!
I might draw more people, but I will post them after the quest is finished.
PS: Don't mind the little watermark in the corner, it's done by the app i used to make the pic b/w and rotate it

Hi! Here's my new quest.
Main idea: draw (or create in other ways, even cosplay) a character (or many), how you imagine them from the in-game interaction you had with them. The drawing must match a brief description of themselves physically (if there is one available) but you add the spices (aka the details)!
*the main focus should be on characters without too many visual references about how they look (aka avatars, comment on self pictures, etc) but that's not mandatory.
* can be any type of drawing (yes,even stick figure if you know how to add something special to it,digital drawing, etc), can be cosplay, even a sculpture or whatever way of creating an image of one of the characters you can imagine.
** it doesn't have to be artistic, it's not an art contest, more like one of imagination -- Please state who you drew in the post! :D
*** entries will be judged by myself (and 2 more judges) and the rep system on the forum (I will rate each entry from 1 to 10 and each forum rating point means 1 - what's over 10 means 10). I'll make the average between those two
**** entries will be posted here in the comments
Assira the Black 4.75
There were 3 judges + the forum rep system, each person's score was an average between these. Blackshade rider will sponsor extra stuff to the people who aren't top 3 as well. Congratulations!
First place: WP (blackshade rider)
Second place: 1 GC
Third Place: 2 Mirrorritual stones + Water
apophys reacted to Curiose in Respect
More like: Multiple experiences with multiple people were terrible.
I'm not saying that Chewett is some sort of perfect mortal, he is human. But that I don't typically see him going out of his way to harass someone or to be overtly obsessed over someone.
So, take it as you will.
apophys reacted to Aethon in Emotional Connections
What follows is my first quest created, so try not to judge me too harshly! :D
We all know what emotions feel like and we all know what they look like, at least...on a person. But emotions can be triggered through seeing or smelling something that stimulates an old memory, this can be consciously or subconsciously. This is thanks to the amazing part of our brain called the limbic system, also known as "the emotional brain", and human conditioning to associate through sight and smell!
We can also flip this on it's head! We often associate certain objects to our emotions. For example: when upset people can crave chocolate - due to the body recognizing that chocolate can make us happy - because of the tryptophan levels in it being used by the brain to create serotonin!
Anyway, enough of the science lesson though and down to the task at hand!
For this quest your task is to recall 4 different emotions and draw an object that you associate to each one. You should also provide a sentence or two about what it is that makes you associate the two for each emotion.
You could draw a bar of chocolate, a horse, a carrot or even a toilet? Who knows what you feel when sat on a toilet! (Though we probably don't want to know...)
This could be an association you yourself feel or it could just be a generally associated object and emotion, e.g Tombstone >> Sadness.
Where to post
Please post all entries here on this thread.
All entries shall be judged by myself and two others. We will be looking at if you've made a good connection between the emotion and object, how well it's drawn and more subjective reasons such as is it funny, is it cleverly done, etc.
Winners will receive
1st: Wish point + Tear Filled Cranium + 3sc
2nd: 10th Anniversary Aramor + 8sc
3rd: Imperial Aramor + Teleport to PC Stone + Random item + 8sc
All entries should be in from one week of this post (MD Day 125) no later than 23:59 ST
