Not quite as good as the above but anything "Trails in the Sky" or "Tales of xxx"

Nier Automata if you're looking for something modern.

Boog wants good stories. I don't know Nier's story, but scratch Trails in the Sky off the good stories list. The dialogue is well written but the plot is SUPER generic.

Thanks to Akaramu, I'm going back to replaying Last Remnant, now that I can hook up my old PS3 controllers wirelessly to my PC and pipe it all to my TV.

I thought I was done with this game and its "No you can't attack the person you want because HAHAH" rap.

I'm thinking about replaying it too. For the third time. After already having clocked 294 hours on it on Steam.  :o

Yeah, I officially love that game more than any FF game except X.

In line with the new distinction between Abilities and Skills: new Ability idea - the ability to change your mdesc/sdesc once an IG year.

People should hesitate to even attack a mage, let alone try to kill them unless they have a very specific background of knowing how magick works.

One approach to dealing with this would be to occasionally, upon a mage's death, have some negative effect afflict a PC who kills the mage.

I'm on hour 21023430210310301301031 in the Witcher 3 and now I'm about to finally start Blood & Wine :)

It's such an amazing game, especially if you get some mods to make it even prettier than it already is.

I took a break from Gwent (the online version of the Witcher 3's mini-game) so I wanted to re-play all the Witcher games during that time. It's such a loooooooooooooong game!

Highly recommended.

I would even recommend starting with Witcher 2 if you want, it's just as great but much shorter, and you can also carry some of your decisions over to Witcher 3.

The race and magic hatred in Witcher 3 is so much Armageddon-like.

This would be super cool if the code allowed for you to change your appearance a little when going in as a spy with some disguise skill. Adding fake tattoos, wigs, false beards and all that.

As far as a subguild with what is around currently my suggestions would be....

Skills:
Sneak
Hide
Climb

Branches:
Listen
Scan
Pick

They could also have all the various accents. I think a SPY as a subguild is a sweet idea, I just wish there was a bit more to SUPPORT a spy.

I just wanted to fish in Farcry 5 and I ended up shooting everyone in a compound.

Ugh.

I want a fun RPG to play. It feels like everything I've got is old. Maybe I should just stick with the old Final Fantasies. There's nothing I find fun in the RPG genre anymore!

Ni no Kuni 1 & 2

Anything Persona

Not quite as good as the above but anything "Trails in the Sky" or "Tales of xxx"

Nier Automata if you're looking for something modern.

ANYthing Tales of xxx?! Bwahaha.

I will peruse!

Also, Mag'har Orcs in the new xpac for WoW. Fuck yeah!

1)  They are definitely NOT more unpopular than elves in the current atmosphere of the game.  100% certainty.  But I can also say they should be, by all degrees of my opinion.  Elves are far easier to tolerate and have around you (they -are- around you the vast majority of the time) than wigglers.

When I played (not THAT long ago), there were multiple serial killers and mage haters specifically hunting gemmed. No one was specifically targeting elves for the sake of killing elves, as far as I knew. I also have the impression that players who dislike magick on an OOC level tend to play mage killer / gem collector characters, and not just once.

People should hesitate to even attack a mage, let alone try to kill them unless they have a very specific background of knowing how magick works. But unfortunately players know OOCly how the magick code works and that they won't burst into flame when touching a mage with a sword.  ::) So, yeah, magick needs to be scary again without spending years in the Byn before manifesting. If the IG reality of magick ever matches the documentation again, I'll probably play.

But we've had that discussion before. Let's get back to stuff that could be added to the game.
