2020.12.02 13:06 mcyeetus123 Update on the Jojos dnd adventure I’m making

Jojos bizzare adventure: the journey to the source.
119 year’s ago an adventure started little did anyone know that this adventure would change the world forever you are now part of this adventure this very bizzare adventure.
You are a band of adventurers with a common goal destroy any evil that crosses your path you have been working over the years to go to the source of evil and destroy it.
You are in a small town called morioh this year there has been several murders but no one has found the murderer yet. Do you wish to do anything?
Go to okuyasus house: You go to a broken down house that looks like it hasn’t been used for years (tell the party to roll perception if they get a 8 or over they will see a candle light in the window) Would you like to enter? (If the party say yes then they enter if they say no then they do not enter) if they do enter okuyasu will come out and say “what d’you want?” If the party do not leave then okuyasu will start to get into a fighting position (tell the party to roll initiative)
Okuyasu
Str: 10 +2 Int: 9 -1 Dex: 10 +1 Wis: 9 -2 Cha: 15 +2 Lvl 3 Hp 30
The hand
Str: 15 +3 Int: 9 -1 Dex: 10 +1 Wis: 9 -2 Cha: 11 +2
When he is on 10 health he will beg for mercy and draw back The hand
Go to Rohan’s house: Rohan will ask you what you want only opening the door half way if the party want to engage in battle Rohan will say “fine but if you lose you become manga material” if they don’t Rohan will slam the door and mutter “waste of my time”
Rohan
Lvl 4 Hp 25 Str 10 + 1 Int 15 +2 Dex 12 +1 Wis 13 +1 Cha 10 -1
Heavens door
Str 14 +3 Int 15 +1 Dex 12 +0 Wis 12 +1 Cha 10 -1
At 10 Heath he will withdraw heavens door and say “you are very good fighters indeed I look forward to seeing you again sometime”
The party may ask Rohan if he would like to join there adventure if they do I will roll a d20 if it’s over 13 then he will join
Shigechis house: engage with shigechi but do not battle
Shigechi storyline: You find a small creature saying “I found you” carrying a 100 yen coin running away from a post office going towards many more creatures that look exactly the same they seem to be going towards a hill where what looks like a small boy is standing atop
If the adventurers decided to go towards the hill they will meet shigekiyo yangu a high school student who has a stand named harvest the boy explain that his parents call him shigechi and that he uses his stand harvest to take the spare change people have dropped or have lost
What do you want to do? (Below are just a few things that they could say)
1: Ask him about morioh
2: Engage in battle
Shigechi
Str 10 +1 Int 11 +1 Dex 9 -1 Wis 12 -1 Cha 15 +3
Harvest
Str 14 +2 Int 11 +1 Dex 13 +3 Wis 12 -1 Cha 9 +1 Lvl 3 Hp 20
If you get him to 10 health or less roll a d20 if it’s less than 15 he begs for mercy if it’s more then he will have injected alcohol into you and made you drunk making you not able to move well and giving shigechi a chance to deal major damage to you
Say: Roll a d20 if it’s over 10 then you break free if it’s under 10 you stay drunk until next turn
If you break free shigechi will cower and try to flee
It’s up to the player to decide what they do with him
As usual in dnd the if a player decides to kill then that player will become evil
Dont kill: Shigechi joins the team on there adventure and gives them information
Kill: He is dead and you go somewhere else for information. Word will go around that a 13 year olds body was found on a hill and the police are investigating everyone’s home meaning they might find the murderer who has been killing many more people than you which means you may have done good by killing shigechi but that does not excuse your murder evidence will have come to you as someone saw you near shigechi before you murdered him and you will be taken into questioning.
Would you like to explore some more?
Yes: As you go down the streets you notice a man begging but there is something strange about this man he seems to have two right hands
Do you want to go up to the man?
Yes: He Looks at you wondering why your coming towards him forgetting he was sitting on the floor begging he asks you “what do you want?”
Recommend looking around and coming back to this area or just looking around your general area
If the party does tell them to roll a perception check and if it’s 12 or over they will see a man dressed in a cowboy outfit holding a gun
The man with two right hands sees Finns scythe and tells the party his name is centerfold and that man in the cowboy outfit is named hol horse proceeding to stand up
Tell the party to roll initiative
Centerfold
Str 10 -1 Int 14 +2
Dex 9 -2 Wis 13 +1 Cons 15 +3 Cha 9 -2 Hp 0 Lvl 2
Gives 1 level to each person who damaged him. Apart from npcs
To attack with the hanged man you must roll a d20 to hit and a d6 for damage
Hanged man

You go to a house that looks fairly modern in the window you see a boy in a high school uniform playing video games if the team knocks on the door the boy will answer it
It is up to the team to decide what to do next
Just make up dialogue
Nothing of significance will happen and at the end of there conversation josuke will give you his phone number saying “if you ever need me call this number”
The hotel is open if the team wants to get a room
Start of the end of morioh
A new day has started and there seems to be a strange feeling in the air
You hear something strange in the other room shigechi says “I will go see what that noise was I don’t think you should follow me” shigechi then leaves and 2 minutes later you hear a second noise Say: would you like to investigate
Yes: You go towards the other room and see something awful. Shigechis body is lying on the floor it seems only half of it is there there is blood all over the floor and shigekiyo yangu is dead at the age of 13
You see a man running away from the body Say: do you want to follow him
Yes: you follow the man and he turns around suddenly and says “I would stop there if I were you”
If the team goes towards the man he will say “Stop there or this whole hotel goes kaboom” he proceeds to bring out his stand
Send this image:
“My name is Yoshikage Kira. I'm 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone”
Say: roll initiative
Yoshikage Kira stats:
Hp 2 Str 12 +1 Dex 14 +2 Con 15 +2 Int 15 +3 Wis 12 -1 Cha 13 + 1
Killer queen stats:
Str 15 +3 Dex 13 +1 Con 12 +0 Int 11 +0 Wis 11 +0 Cha 11 +0
Sheer heart attack (last resort) stats:
Hp 25
Str 15 +3 Dex 15 +2 Con 9 -3 Int 10 -2 Wis 10 -2 Cha 9 -3
Once the team kill yoshikage Kira they will hear a voice coming that seems to be coming from inside there own mind it says
“I always loved music from the other timeline i especially loved queen imperticually KILLER QUEEN and ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST”
As soon as the man says DUST yoshikage begins to rise off the floor but he seems to be wearing different clothes and has different hair.
(Play Yoshikage Kiras theme A.K.A Killer)
Yoshikage Kira turns into kosaku kajiwiri and gains the move BITES THE DUST BITES THE DUST turns back time an hour after someone asks about yoshikage Kira and if it works time will rewind an hour
Send this image:
He has the same stats as yoshikage Kira
Jotaro Kujo hears an explosion and is coming to the aid of the team
Jotaro: What the hell! Jotaro also begins to fight
Send this image:
Once he is defeated say: Your work is done here in morioh now you must go to Cairo because your plane leaves in an hour and thirty minutes
Once in Cairo you hear people talking about a man who teleports from place to place
The places you can go are Oingo boingo cafe: Just food. The desert: Iggy Fight Hotel: Death 13 fight
Iggy Stats:
Hp 20 Str 13 +1 Dex 15 +3 Con 12 -1 Int 10 -1 Wis 10 -1 Cha 14 +2
The Fool stats:
Str 14 +2 Dex 15 +3 Con 12 -1 Int 10 -1 Wis 10 -1 Cha 14 +2
Death 13 stats:
Hp 29 Str 15 +3 Dex 14 +2 Con 12 -1 Int 11 +0 Wis 11 +0 Cha 10 -1
Nothing special will happen when you defeat death 13. Though there is a way you can skip death 13 and that is to not sleep in the Cairo hotel.
(This can happen whenever the dm wants it too) If the team goes to the cafe they will see a newspaper saying someone has been found dead outside a mansion no one has been found to be a suspect but it seems the killer used a knife to kill them
If the team decide to go to the mansion:
The gates and doors to the mansion are wide open and there seems to be no guards so the team can walk right in
The first encounter will be GIORNO GIOVANNA
Send this image:
He will come up to you and say “Do you know of my father?”
He will then proceed to shout “Get down!” And then push the team over with his stand what proceeds is:
A large hole appears in the wall next to you and another appears in the other wall next to you it does not stop moving
Giorno will say “We have to run”
Tell the party to roll Dexterity

2020.12.02 00:20 InquisitionL6 31 [M4F] US/TX Fit Gamer looking for someone to enjoy life with

Looking for a cool kid who likes and wants to do cool things with their life. I train for Triathlons, I rock climb, like hiking and want to get into photography. Negs Upfront: I suffer from seasonal depression, I was isolated for 24 years of my life and abused physically and mentally for a lot of it. As a result of it I'm really easy going, don't really get angry, I like fixing things and really enjoy helping out. High stress situations don't really impact me much, I also like cooking, reading manga, manwha, comics, and watching anime and movies. I am terrified of heights, but I'll jump out of airplanes and scale hills and mountains oh and rock climb. Sometimes I make no sense, and I have a eidetic memory so sorry if I get too quiet or too happy I'm either in a really good place or in a moderately awful place where I feel being quiet is best.
"You are the aspect of resiliency" - My Therapist and most of my HR team.
Pros:
I'm easy going, I like trying new things I love swimming more then I like running, I don't mind driving, and I overcome a lot of issues on my own most of the time unless I need help. I am balanced and do yoga and meditate too, I like being both inside and outside. I love being in love, and I'm usually pretty positive. My friends think I'm funny and either enjoy my cooking or don't want to cook in their own homes if I'll do it for them. I also clean, it's really weird to discover after years of dating that is something that I need to ask for and mention. I am deeply into Game Theory, Wisecrack and Kurzesaget on Youtube.
If anything up there interests you. Just say Hi and lets talk.

2020.12.01 20:14 ChaoticDominance 29 [M4F] Michigan - Looking for a partner that makes things

I'm going to ramble a lot in this.
A couple who makes together sticks together . . . like rubber cement. Like two riveted rings of linked together chainmail, I think a good relationship only becomes strong when two people with similar shape and mindset become one.
OK that's enough for the weird maker metaphors. Hi, I'm Josh. I'm a 29 year old straight Male from Lansing, MI and will be staying in this area for as long as I can think. I do not drive cause money is a thing but I tend to buy tools or materials instead of eating out or saving for some reason. Although saving for a new apartment come March has put everything on hold. Eating out, tools and stuff, games....needless to say I have been being responsible and it feels too strange.
Anywho, 29 years old from Lansing, MI. Moving come March but will be staying in the city. I'm looking for a female partner to form a long lasting relationship with who is a crafter and builder. Whatever form of DIY and arts that you do, it's important that you do it to me. Crafts and Arts help stimulate the mind and I find I need that in my life. So the biggest requirements are you're local and that you are a maker and crafter. More to come later.
I am interested in other stuff though. Anime and Manga are important to me and give me inspiration. I love it and it's what made me who I am today when I didn't have many role models. I also really enjoy the outdoors. Hiking, winter camping, and cycling are to name a few of my favorite activities outside but they are many. And I am a bit of a nerd. Harry Potter, Star Wars, Sherlock, PC games, D&D, LARP, and much more. I'm pretty much a bundle of interests.
Last thing about me is that I'm not a perfect guy. I've got plenty of flaws and disabilities which effect my life greatly. I will be faithful to you always and will accept a lot of your flaws without question, I just request you do the same.
About you: I hate this part. Me being picky about some things. But I'm looking for a makecrafteartist who's local to Lansing, MI and the surrounding area. I ask that you're a open minded and accepting person. I ask that you're between the ages of 20 and 32. And although it may alienate a few people here, I'd like to date someone of average body weight. Some men like women who are overweight, but I am not one of them. If this makes you feel alienated and hurt, I am very sorry for doing so.
Here are a few photos of me in which you will see I'm a massive fuck off dork. I hope to hear from you in the future. Have a good day!

2020.12.01 04:41 LaxusZ 27 [M4F] NYC/Anywhere , Looking for that special kind of connection/love

So I honestly think that the title can sum up a bit of what I'm looking for in a way , But I'll still elaborate on what I want , I want to feel like I'm lost when I'm with someone , like that I'm lost but somehow I find myself back with them , that they are my guiding light in the darkness. Honestly yeah life is pretty difficult since most people are looking for success in their career paths which is awesome as I'm doing the same but down the line you begin to feel alone and empty and crave for the care and love a Significant other brings to you as you would for them. I've been single for a while now and I'm just not cut out for the whole "Hook Up" culture so here I am giving every type of avenue of dating a chance and seeing if I end up meeting the one my heart would belong to.
This a a pic of myself: https://imgur.com/NVxrg1x
A little About me :
- I love Video Games ( Like competitive/ sometimes casual player)
-I'm VERY talkative and love bringing up random shit to conversations I'm having with people
- I'm actually a selfless person believe it or not , I love to always help others out and do the right thing , just a pride thing
- I do have a dad bod but slowing loosing weight to reach my goal whatever it is (Lost 50lbs since Feb 2020)
- I'm 5'9 so I'm sort of short for a guy and I'm South East Asian (Bangladesh)
- I love anime ( Haven't much of any show for a bit) , and reading manga ( I'm an avid reader pretty much)
- I'm going for a degree in Game Design right now since I love creating new and innovative thing in a virtual space that is gaming ( I want to make a horror game in the future , like a actual good one lmao)
- I'm a Hopeless romantic guy , so that literally means I will sing randomly to you and always plan new and exciting things for us to do and always make sure to message and call you with some cute stuff or like some really cheesy stuff too
So hopefully I did write too much here but I'm hoping I can finally meet someone who can cherish and respect my effort and time I put into them as I would respect them back for their effort and time , hope to see a message

2020.12.01 04:22 kiaxxl Hríd is the OC with the longest absence from being in FEH

Because I'm bored and have been thinking about the OC's presence in the FEH game, I decided to go through their last appearances and judging by my findings, Hríd has had the longest absence out of any OC to date!
Alfonse/Sharena/Anna: Mainstay characters Gustav and Henriette: Present in Book 3, Gustav appears in a dream during Book 4, parents occasionally mentioned in Forging Bonds Veronica: Usually at least two-three appearances per book Bruno: Very absent but is mentioned by characters + appears in a dream during Book 4 Fjorm and Ylgr: Often make cameos in Forging Bonds and the FEH manga Gunnthra, Helbindi and Laegjarn: Summer alts in mid 2019 (edit it's been pointed out Helbindi also makes a Book 4 dream cameo by Ryeaugla) Laevatein: Summer and Ninja alts Surtr: Xenologue post Book 2, appears as a dream in Book 4 Loki and Thor: General appearances + Loki's Pawns mode debut Book 3/4 OCs: Used during their books and seemingly making returns in Book 5
Which leaves us with poor Hríd, who to the best of my knowledge, was last featured with a New Years alt in the first month of 2019, long before the Book 3 OCs ended. He featured in one Forging Bonds in November 2018, featuring all Nifl siblings. He was mentioned in a general sense in December 2018 by Ylgr who wanted to take presents from the Winter Festival back home, but was not mentioned by name. Unless I've missed something (and feel free to correct me!), Hrid has now become the FEH OC with the longest absence.

2020.12.01 03:36 cursedunluck 28[M4F] - FL/US/INTERNATIONAL - Genuine, Steady, Building Something Real. No Games, Just All The Way 100.

Reposting in hopes someone not interested in wasting my time sees this (a few people already have wasted mine). Just because it's reddit doesn't mean we can't be serious. I'm not here for games or wasting anyone's time or energy. I'm willing to relocate to places like the UK or Japan, EU, or even elsewhere in the US at some point in a somewhat distant future. Even if we're not in the same state, feel free to MESSAGE or CHAT me if anything here appeals to you instead of commenting to reply. The "About Me" is at the bottom.
About Me: Hispanic, 6'0" tall, bi-lingual and inconsistently learning two more languages. Hilarious and will roast you healthily. I have several love languages, I play but a few video games, I love anime and manga, I don't mind a good musical, I enjoy being put on to new things like books or films or shows or anything cultural. I love cats and I like dogs because pets are great. I make music as a career path primarily but I also am hoping to publish a novel in the near future. I'm originally from New York City so yes I have the accent--no, it's not the exaggerated Hollywood version--and yes, I have a deep, husky, sleepy voice. I am also down to move to discord for a bit to voice call if we're clicking but I am in no rush to trade selfies or facetime for a reason I will confess to you in private. I also am not a concert goer not partier, and am very much a homebody who is starting a travel fund so I can get some stamps in my passport finally.

2020.12.01 03:06 superhumanoidbeaver 30 [m4r] bored stoner looking for a friend or more

Hey reddit, like most, my 2020 has been hot garbage and lately ive been feeling kinda lonely despite talking to numerous people everyday. Ideally id love to meet me a cool girl on here but ill take a cool person who can is funny and can keep a conversation going. A little about me i work part time right now but im practically unemployed (thanks 2020). Ive been single for about 7-8 months (again thanks 2020) so far i have been loving it but wonder how does dating even work once im ready for that again, will the pandemic affect life for years? My hobbies include reading/watch manga/anime, i read practically every comic released every week, i listen to many genres of music (not a country fan) and im constantly looking for something new to listen to. I play video games mostly ps4 and Switch, i have an xbox and a pc but i admittedly dont use them as much. I recently got back into watching wrestling and im sort of a addicted to the dumbness of it and the impressive athleticism, i wish i was in that good of shape lol. I am definitely more of a cat person but dogs are freaking cool too. So hey thank you for reading that blurb, you should send me a message and lets see if we can make a new friendship happen.

2020.11.30 18:21 gabrurdesodio 25 [M4F] Europe/Anywhere - Be my Tracy McConnell except don't die early pls

Nowadays I'm pretty happy when it comes about my life. Finally got the job I wanted, conserved a couple of good friends who won't kill me even when I say a lot of bad jokes, started being constant and less lazy... but when it comes to having a deeply connection when someone, who will be impatient to spend time with you, listen to your nonsense always with the same enthusiasm... lately I miss that.
I want you to think about me when you discover a random fact that surprised you, when you suddenly want to go for a nocturn walk, whenever you need to say something out of your chest or when you just need a silent hug.
Be your best friend, your confident, your travel companion; and starting to build together the rest of our lives.
>> Some attributes I hope you value too <<
· Honestity and empathy - Because honestity without empathy may be cruelty. You can always try to reach other's hearts without hurting them. Unless they like pinapple pizza.
· Loyalty - yes
· Communication - Important, I can read hints but I've not developed yet my mind-reading module. Developers are working on the next update.
· Enthusiasm and effort - Nothing discourage me more than talking to someone who won't show any will to know me. Let's not waste our time, this should not be way of killing time!
· Hooman - I do not date robots, sorry if you are offended.
· Ghosting is bad - Just tell the other one you don't feel the same or you are not interested anymore because of whatever. Isn't that hard, c'mon.
>> About the hopeless romantic writting this <<
Loves nature and hopes to live in a house with enough space to hold a bbq, a pool... and the hammock he will be sharing with you on sunday's morning while drinking a coffee, prepared obviously with the espresso machine you had to buy him last Christmas like the coffee snob he is.
Oh, the house may have a big garage because he likes to repair himself the house's thingys and the classic car(s) you will enjoy together.
He's taking you to places baby, because he likes to drive. Also the main hobbies would be hiking, trail running (this year discovered it and couldn't love it more), videogames (may you play with him a shitty game or maybe league? oh but that are synonyms), anime/manga/lightnovels and overthinking about things he should not. You may encourage him to play the piano more often (he is starting on his own this year but shhh)!
The hugs are amazing, especially in winter since he may be an oven.
Enjoys documentaries (especially about animals).
Will give a try at everything you like, will support you on all your hobbies and dreams, putting your feet on the ground if needed.
How I Met Your Mother is one of his favourite shows, also My Name is Earl and some others he can't remember because of his fish memory.
He's more of a dog person, specially large ones.
Can spend evenings searching info about some topic he just discovered and thought it was interesting. The same applies in looking for the best option to buy whatever. Oh men a lot of evenings... pls stop
And I think I will stop here, so you can discover the rest chatting with me.
To the 0 people that made it this far, hope you enjoyed the reading and I will be waiting for your message (I'd love a long message telling me what you felt reading it or what you liked the most!).

2020.11.30 18:18 weheartyume 32 [F4F] #New Jersey - I hope it's not too late to find you

I'm cis-female, married (to a man) and a mom of one.
I'm always learning about creative things. I'm not the best at putting what I learn into practice, but I try my best. Videography is my latest obsession.
I did a lot of writing back when I was in high school. I've always been a big dreamer. Sadly, the older I get, the harder it is for me to take those thoughts and turn them into a well thought out piece of writing. I want to work on that in the upcoming year.
I love music and I listen to many different genres. Early 2000 alternative rock has a special place in my heart.
I'm black. 5'5 and slim with a little extra fluff from pregnancy. I've been working on getting as close to my pre pregnancy body as I can. I really enjoy working on myself, both inside and out.
I've been out of touch with anime and manga for years now, but I've been trying to ease my way back into it. I'm currently watching "Blood of Zeus" on Netflix and I love it. Okay I know it's not an official Japanese anime, but I'm a sucker for mythology.
Remember the game Maplestory? I'm pretty sure that was the last game I (seriously) played. I have a new pc coming in the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to finding a new game to get hooked on. If only Sims was an mmorpg. I would love that.
I don't like talking about politics. I generally avoid confrontation. I don't have a religion, but I love learning about creationism.
I enjoy cannabis on a semi regular basis. This started at the "ripe old age" of 30. I need to point out that I'm not a couch lock smoker. In fact, I love a good smoke and stretch session. I want to switch from smoking to edibles in the near future, so I've been reading a lot about that lately.
I have too many nice journals and notebooks that I never write in because I don't want to ruin them.
I'm not bi-curious. I've had crushes on girls for as long as I can remember and I've had 3 relationships that didn't pan out.
I have no desire to "serial date".
I know that every interaction isn't going to blossom into the deeply seeded, heart encompassing, emotional connection that I crave, but please give me something to ponder over when you respond. "Hey" just won't do it for me. I mean that respectfully.
Your location doesn't matter. While I would love to meet someone in NJ, I'm fine with loving someone long distance with loose plans to meet in the future.
I want to tell you...everything. I want to pour my soul out to you. I want to listen to your stories. I want you to tell me what you dream about. I want you to tell me what you had for breakfast. I like good morning texts and good night kisses. I like cuddles and hand holding and musicals and drinking hot chocolate on cool autumn nights. I would take an intimate night with a small group of friends over a wild night at a bar. I would choose holding you close in the winter's wind, over sitting cross-legged in front of a warm fire.....actually I hate the cold. So, that would be a tough decision. *smile*
If this post is still around, whether it's 6 months from now or 6 years from now. I'm still looking and waiting.
I can't wait to build memories with you...
Edit: Just want to mention based on responses I've gotten so far. Sorry, but I'm only looking for women. I'm not interested in couples or men.

2020.11.30 15:18 jediabj77 31 [M4F] Switzerland/Europe - Nerd for nerd!

Hey redditors,
Hope you all are safe, happy and healthy!
Been a few weeks since I posted here. Trying again - to positivity, optimism and not giving up!
Single Indian nerd here, looking for a kindred soul. Should racial/ethnic origins be a deal breaker - you can stop reading.
I live in Switzerland - relocated here for work last year from USA after finishing my PhD. While I am acclimatized to living here, the social life has significant room for improvement. I hardly know anyone in Europe who isn't family or a work colleague. Language barrier and the pandemic certainly did nothing to help. Which brings me to reddit.
I want to establish a deep personal connection with someone - share thoughts, dreams, goals, aspirations, travel stories, music, books, food and maybe more if we click. I am a shy introvert with somewhat limited social skills. Online interactions have always seemed more comfortable than irl, and even without the lock-down my social life would likely not be too different. Nonetheless, I am trying to change that and to make the best of the situation. I very much want a relationship and would prefer to communicate with someone who wants to actually meet up in the foreseeable future - not just be pen pals. However, everything needs a beginning so let us start with a conversation. That said, I would prefer people in similar time zones.
In case you're looking for common ground or ice-breakers: nerd, gamer and coffee addict sums me up. There is a kinky side to me as well that I usually kept out of my dating posts, but over time I have realized this is important to me and I want a partner who shares my interests. And yet, we are all more than the sum of our hobbies.
Gaming : I am primarily a PC gamer with a taste for RPG and strategy. Gaming is not the only part of my life but it is an important one. As such I want to connect with at least a casual gamer. I regularly play games like final fantasy 14, guild wars 2, path of exile, civilization 6 to name a few. I also have a switch and a PS4 if you prefer those platforms for gaming.
Kinks - better discussed later should we actually get along; I don't fit into a specific mould and still discovering myself.
Besides that, I have all the stereotypical geeky interests - reading fantasy/science fiction, watching anime (subs!), reading manga, good movies and series - you can extrapolate from there. I enjoy cooking, traveling and exploring new places. I frequently like to go hiking in the mountains but it is almost always alone. I am also a vegetarian if that matters.
I am happy to talk about most things (except perhaps the shitty state of politics and the pandemic - got enough of that already). If you happen to be in STEM, we can talk shop as well!
I am usually a very agreeable person, but somethings such as smoking, 420, strong religious inclinations, illogical beliefs, anti-science mindset, and hypocrisy are an absolute no for me.
If you've read this far (apologies for the verbosity) and feel like there is common ground to build something on, please leave me a private message (not a reddit chat - I will probably not even see those), and let's start a conversation.
Stay safe!
Cheers.

2020.11.30 06:19 cursedunluck 28[M4F] - FL/US/INTERNATIONAL - Current Times Make It Hard To Really Meet People. Why Not Try Here? [Relationship]

Sorry if the post seems long to you. I tried to keep is as abridged as I could. I'm willing to relocate to places like the UK or Japan maybe France/EU or even elsewhere at some point in a somewhat distant future. Even if we're not in the same state, feel free to MESSAGE or CHAT me if anything here appeals to you instead of commenting to reply. The "About Me" is as the bottom.
About Me: Hispanic, 6'0" tall, bi-lingual and inconsistently learning two more languages. Hilarious and will roast you healthily. I have several love languages, I play but a few video games, I love anime and manga, I don't mind a good musical, I enjoy being put on to new things like books or films or shows or anything cultural. I love cats and I like dogs because pets are great. I make music as a career path primarily but I also am hoping to publish a novel in the near future. I'm originally from New York City so yes I have the accent--no, it's not the exaggerated Hollywood version--and yes, I have a deep, husky, sleepy voice. I am in no rush to trade selfies or facetime for a reason I will confess to you in private at some point if it's going well. I also am not a concert goer nor a partier, and am very much a homebody who is starting a travel fund so I can get some stamps in my passport finally.

2020.11.29 02:16 acomerta 18[F4M] Brazil/Everywhere - Is love only chemistry?

My name is Ana and I am an ordinary girl.
I've never had a real relationship, so I am quite inexperienced when it comes to dating. I might be shy at first, but I will definitely start to make terrible jokes as soon as we become more intimate.
I am passionate about books. I read a lot of romance, but I'm not stuck in one genre, if an idea looks good I will read it. My favorite books are Ready Player One and Pride and Prejudice.
I consider myself a bit of a geek, but I am not the type of person who gets really obsessed over something. I can say I appreciate in moderation.
I also watch anime and collect some manga.
I am eclectic about music, but I don't like slow songs with sad melodies. I usually listen to happy music, with dancing beats.
I'm an open-hearted girl, I have my opinions on current issues, but I don't fight or argue about it if I meet someone with an opposite opinion. I will aways try to avoid conflict and I have a really calm nature, unless it is serious issue.
I can’t say I am a gamer, but I play some pc games once in a while. I love to laugh and have a strange sense of humor. I like people who are humorous and funny.
Feel free to send a DM (18-23) and thanks for reading my post.
Please understand that I am a young girl with almost no romantic experience, so be reasonable with whatever you expect from me.
I hope you are having a good day, and if I am not what you are looking for, good luck in your search.
Parece ironia querer viver um amor no século da putaria.

2020.11.28 22:52 ChaoticDominance 29 [M4F] Michigan - Looking for a partner that makes things

I'm going to ramble a lot in this.
A couple who makes together sticks together . . . like rubber cement. Like two riveted rings of linked together chainmail, I think a good relationship only becomes strong when two people with similar shape and mindset become one.
OK that's enough for the weird maker metaphors. Hi, I'm Josh. I'm a 29 year old straight Male from Lansing, MI and will be staying in this area for as long as I can think. I do not drive cause money is a thing but I tend to buy tools or materials instead of eating out or saving for some reason. Although saving for a new apartment come March has put everything on hold. Eating out, tools and stuff, games....needless to say I have been being responsible and it feels too strange.
Anywho, 29 years old from Lansing, MI. Moving come March but will be staying in the city. I'm looking for a female partner to form a long lasting relationship with who is a crafter and builder. Whatever form of DIY and arts that you do, it's important that you do it to me. Crafts and Arts help stimulate the mind and I find I need that in my life. So the biggest requirements are you're local and that you are a maker and crafter. More to come later.
I am interested in other stuff though. Anime and Manga are important to me and give me inspiration. I love it and it's what made me who I am today when I didn't have many role models. I also really enjoy the outdoors. Hiking, winter camping, and cycling are to name a few of my favorite activities outside but they are many. And I am a bit of a nerd. Harry Potter, Star Wars, Sherlock, PC games, D&D, LARP, and much more. I'm pretty much a bundle of interests.
Last thing about me is that I'm not a perfect guy. I've got plenty of flaws and disabilities which effect my life greatly. I will be faithful to you always and will accept a lot of your flaws without question, I just request you do the same.
About you: I hate this part. Me being picky about some things. But I'm looking for a makecrafteartist who's local to Lansing, MI and the surrounding area. I ask that you're a open minded and accepting person. I ask that you're between the ages of 20 and 32. And although it may alienate a few people here, I'd like to date someone of average body weight. Some men like women who are overweight, but I am not one of them. If this makes you feel alienated and hurt, I am very sorry for doing so.
Here are a few photos of me in which you will see I'm a massive fuck off dork. I hope to hear from you in the future. Have a good day!

2020.11.28 19:26 OneSilverRaven Raven Reviews: The Muv-Luv Series Part 5: Extra, Basically Just Lacrosse.

I tell Sumika I'll go out with her.
Ta...P-kun... has second thoughts. In fact he has a bad feeling the near future will be affected by this choice. Sumika is overjoyed however and ushers him off to bed. The next day Sumika drags him out of bed to go jogging and the sound of sky rats makes the whole screen just as annoying for me as poor P-kun. In a rare moment of self reflection P-kun criticizes how full of himself he is. I mean he still uses domestic violence in the next scene but I'll take what I can get. She hits him back which leads to him chasing her for four kilometers. Again with the measurement change just pick a unit and stick with it! Meiya finds them outside and tries to arrange for renowned personal trainers to be flown in but the pair refuse. Apparently P-kun is set to play men's water polo which sounds freaking exhausting but what would I know. I think Sumika rock tosses P-kun when he tries to wimp out. Is that the name of the move? From Pokémon... Seismic toss? How the hell does THAT make any sense you can't throw a seismic!
On the way to school P-kun spots Chizuru and Akane talking, which means we get to see Akane for the first time since Maniax which had a similar but also kind of district art style. I haven't mentioned this yet but Muv-Luv represented a huge jump in graphics for AGE signaling the third shift in their art department which WAIT!
I'm doing it again, I have to stop here before I get started on the art. We're having such a good time I can't spoil it with that topic yet. Akane looks good, much more mature despite the fact her last appearance was a little over a week ago in universe. Still has that obnoxious headband. She walks straight up to P-kun and introduces herself to the group of three. Meiya tries to apologies for her attempt a few days ago to vanquish her but Akane totally brushes it off. Pretty nonchalant for a girl who recently had to deal with a stalker but good for her I guess. P-kun makes reference to Maniax and Akane's more sullen temperament in that novel but YOU try dealing with Gouda for a month and see how depressed you get that guy is an energy sponge.
Akane and Chizuru team up to just destroy P-kun verbally but Chizuru seems almost... well happy. She's kind of been a downer the whole novel but right now she looks pretty in her element. P-kun makes it weird by checking her out but I'm really starting to feel like I'm missing some details here because I know the conversation they're having is about KgNE where Chizuru makes an appearance but If I had started this series all the way back at that point I might as well have gone the full length and just begun at the beginning of AGE's catalogue but some of that wouldn't have been relevant to the story for MONTHS so... I'm overthinking this. Chizuru and Akane are best friends and rivals. That's what's important right now. I'll get back to KgNE in Alternative.
P-kun makes a mess of things with Chizuru and his companions chew him out for it. He tells them both to shut up and Meiya literally freezes in the road to burn being disrespected into her brain. I'm starting to think this girl's got problems.
At the entrance we run into Mikoto whos shoe cubby is literally stuffed with love letters from guys which makes me think this school is secretly full of homosexuals which is statistically unlikely but awesome to consider. I'm down for some KSotR action Yowi edition. Apparently everyone's really excited to possibly see Mikoto in a swimsuit, can't say I blame them. Too bad I'll definitely never get to see that. Apparently P-kun has been distorting the facts because their are quite a few women's names among the pile of letters but he only read the male suiters. More homophobia ensues.
In physics class I die a little inside as nothing is accomplished and Kouzuki acts just like herself. Chizuru calls P-kun aside after lessons to ask if he'll go out with her but not wanting to fall for the same trap twice he tries to skirt the issue. Apparently the love rivals are FED UP with his bullshit however and openly mock him for his avoidance. Chizuru gets the idea he's mocking her and pulls him aside regardless. She asks him to convince Kei to join Lacrosse, which yeah, figures, got to get that haram route somehow. So I agree I mean what else am I going to do pick "No I'll say yes later" like this is a Bethesda title? Chizuru is amazed P-kun's willing to help but I'm piloting this ship he'll do as I say he will!
Kei isn't in class when the bell rings so P-kun has to search for her. Sumika asks if P-kun wants to walk home but I'm not going to do that, if I let P-kun slide now he'll NEVER get this done. I turn her down and P-kun hits her. Maybe I was too overzealous saying I pilot this ship. I'm more like a monkey who presses buttons when they flash and screams when the ship nears waterfalls. Sumika hits back and storms off, so I guess things worked out... kind of.
In the hallway P-kun runs into Jinguuji and lets slip he's working for the woman's lacrosse team which sets Jinguuji into a fiery rage. She calms down when the situation is explained but she's obviously tense. She suggests P-kun get at Kei through Tama since they're friends which isn't a bad idea. At the Archery range Tama is alone so P-kun uses word play Kouzuki would be proud of and gets Tama to agree to talk to Kei. Once Tama figures that out however she just deflects it back to P-kun so this whole scene was pointless. Spotting Kei on the way to the roof P-kun follows her and WOAH pantsu.
Bro come on we were finally on a good rhythm why you got to screw things up with a panty shot NOW of all times? I already knew I wasn't going to like this conversation, I HATE when I know what's going to happen ahead of time and the novel pointlessly drags it out. UGH, fine, pantsu I guess.
Because Kundere bullshit mind palace inner wisdom Kei dominates the conversation and refuses to join lacrosse. The novel tries to make up for it by hosting a daydream where Chizuru and Kei say they're sorry make up and kiss but I'm sorry Muv-Luv not even Yuri can make up for this scene you're just going to have to do better. P-kun is about to leave the school when he runs into Takahashi.
Alright apology accepted.
Then Kouzuki arrives after he leaves.
Forgiveness rescinded.
She forces P-kun into her car and drives to... *sigh*
The coolest scene in the whole novel.
THE COOLEST SCENE IN THE WHOLE NOVEL
Kouzuki grins like the devil in the first good CG for like 2 hours as she speeds off while Takahashi's theme starts up. The sound of gunning engines blares as the two vehicles, the megasine and Kouzuki's sports car get ready to race from a red light. The art style flips to manga panels as the two speed off. Kouzuki giggles like a child as she hugs the curves. A hairpin turn is coming, one the megasine could never make. Instead of turning however when Kouzuki swerves the megasine plows straight through the trees ahead and races onward.
Kouzuki and P-kun, set against a magnificent sunset, accept their defeat with nobility. Kouzuki looks onward piningly at the man who raced away with her heart. Forged in the depths of defeat, P-kun and Yuuko formed a lasting friendship never to be- *COUGH*
Sorry... I just threw up a little. That race was pretty sweet though.
BACK TO LACROSSE
That night Sumika calls P-kun a nice guy which I'm going to have to say the Jury is still out on but alright, I guess you'd know best for now. P-kun tells her to give her best for Lacrosse and they're about to go to bed when P-kun turns to see the three stooges again. They start apologizing for a list of offenses but before they say the last one I'm given the choice to forgive them or not. NO! Fuck these brats they're a nuisance! My choice is worthless though because they just badger forgiveness out of him.
That night P-kun has another dream about the park, this time set to the screeches of children. Lovely. Sumika wins their play fight. No contest she's adorable. Then they build a sand castle.
P-kun is woken by the sounds of a helicopter which is SO not cool at 5AM. Turns out Meiya hired a bunch of personal trainers including clearly Jackie Chan. That's dead up Jackie Chan they even got his fighting stance and yellow suit. Bro you're so going to get sued. P-kun has the nerve to tell them to all go home which must be expensive as all hell given the talent they have here.
P-kun decides to tease his companions on the way to school. Meiya for her extravagance and Sumika for the Drill Milky Punch, an old special move she used to use on him when they'd play pretend. God that name is so fricken stupid. Meiya seems really interested in P-kun's childhood memories and basically interrogates him about it. When he asks her why she left the park after bulldozing the rest of the houses she asks him why HE thinks she left the park alone and he has no idea. Sumika brings up that stupid not poem from the opening of the novel but Meiya brushes her off.
Outside the school we run into Chizuru. P-kun runs off to speak with her and she asks him about Kei. He tells her the truth and she runs off. Kei doesn't come to class so asking her about lacrosse today is a bust. Jinguuji looks as pathetic as ever as she lets the reader know we've got another 9 days of the common route left before the sports festival, so that's fun. P-kun reminds us he's terrible by recounting how keeping secrets for other people just makes his life SO HARD.
Kei does eventually show up and literally lifts P-kun by his shirt color as a shield from Chizuru's ire. At lunch Sumika looks to be about to ask P-kun to eat with her but he runs off after Kei instead. Come to think of it it's been awhile since those lunch choices, hope I didn't screw those up. Anyway Kei gives another panty shot. At least the CG artist didn't put that stupid tube sandwich she's eating in her had hand for good measure. She gives P-kun an identical sandwich since he's skipping lunch but it comes on the condition that he be told to shake hands. Bro I don't have a lot of dignity to start with, I review Visual Novels as a pastime, I will totally sacrifice what I've got for free food that's just economical. P-kun gets about as fed up with Kei's bullshit as I am so he grabs her shoulder. Not cool but hey the novel punishes him immediately when she Judo flips the bastard. When he wakes up from unconsciousness, seriously dude you're goanna get brain damage, Kei agrees to join Lacrosse because this bit is getting old and P-kun passes out again, skipping class.
Jinguuji is very happy at the news and lights up. Kouzuki shows up to ruin my happiness but hey, it was nice to see a new sprite while it lasted. Luckily Jinguuji drags her off to a staff meeting and Mikoto arrives to ask if P-kun wants to play Valgern-on with Meiya and Sumika which DUH of course I do! Girls, in MY hobbies, how can he pass that up?
Apparently to even play the game you have to buy a special card that logs your game history. That's neat and all but 200 yen? what a ripoff. I get stuck with Sumika and an Australian version of the terminal voice. I don't know if I'm surprised they offer an option for English but no Romaji on screen, but I guess they're basically the same thing just one is more complicated. P-kun apparently made his screen name in Romaji which is a neat bit of trivia.
Sumika and P-kun get into a two seater opposite Mikoto and Meiya and get ready to face off. I get a chuckle out of the exchange. "What's the difference between the front seat and the back seat?" "If you sit behind me, you can see the back of my head."
P-kun tugs on Sumika's Ahoge and I can only pray he yanks it out but no suck luck. Apparently Sumika is going to be the piolet for this battle, as a first time player I'm sure that will go well. Meiya comments that she has some hunting experience which is putting her training lightly I assure you but somehow this is even more difficult. Sumika barely holds the mecha steady. they start to recover but I get the choice to trade places with Sumika or keep firing. Well obviously I'm not going to trade places that's just going to confuse her! I give her some encouragement but it's not enough, we lose pretty badly.
Meiya has an interesting way of looking at things, talking about how combat made these toys and these toys will inspire new combat innovations. I mean I guess that's true but we're never going to build giant Mecha I'm sorry, it's just never going to happen. You'd need a whole crew to pilot them and they'd be way too slow. What would we even fight with them buildings? Nothing on Earth is big enough to bother making one for let alone using. Honestly I'm more interested in the fact Meiya finally got used to being called "dude."
That night Sumika calls P-kun out for taking control of the mecha for a second, which he fesses up to. As punishment he has to go running with her again.
The next day an exhausted P-kun reveals to Chizuru and the love rivals he managed to persuade Kei to join Lacrosse, to which their is much rejoicing. The three wrangle him into bringing her to a practice after school.
Physics class, I've run out of witty things to say about Kouzuki, P-kun picks up my slack a bit by describing her as an anti-authoritarian mad woman, sounds about right. Fight the power, down with capitalism and all that. He gets busted for whispering in class and for his insolence gets lectured at about some stupid copyrighted system 2 game. Apparently she thought about creating a motion capture device that captures thoughts instead of movements. Like that could happen. Unfortunately this is all going to be on the test so say a prayer for P-kun he's kind of screwed. Kouzuki runs off to write a thesis which I'm not sure you've ever had to do reader but it's HARD. A graduate thesis alone takes all semester and those aren't even the big ones. What is she even going to write on? Parallel computing? If you want to reduce the size necessary to fit an advanced computer that's a completely different thing then making that computer work. If you want to redesign the whole thing that's even harder. Why are we even focusing on this they made 3 whole CG variations for it!
Meiya and Sumika talk about a lacrosse book and TIL Lacrosse has roots in a combat sport practiced by Native Americans with hundreds of people on kilometers of space.
With that useless knowledge I get to choose to go hang out with Jinguuji or on the roof with Tama and Kei. Well Tama is cute and all but I can't stand Kei so Prep room it is! I immediately regret that choice but only slightly as somehow lesbians get to be portrayed positively in this novel but not gay men. I mean the lesbian stuff is totally played as fetish fuel but that's better then being mocked! Yeah it's just Jinguuji in the demon cosplay. P-kun does the STUPIDEST thing possible and gives Kouzuki the knowledge Kei's going to play FOR FREE so kiss THAT advantage goodbye Kouzuki is totally going to find a way to fuck that up for you.
OKAY BUT ACTUALLY PLAYING LACROSSE THIS TIME
So the practice starts and everyone gets a new sprite set in an athletic outfit which I'm sure was totally necessary and not for fetish content at all. Meiya offers to buy uniforms for everyone so I guess we're getting ANOTHER set of sprites on top of this so add that to the art budget NO, no, I'm not talking about it, just ignore it for now I'll get to it eventually. Quick thing though I promise, Kei's face when Chizuru asks if everyone can meet every day after school is PRICELESS! Okay next scene have to keep moving.
Chizuru explains the rules and P-kun DARES to call football "soccer" like some degenerate American. I should penalize him just for that but I can't be bothered. What follows is an actually really impressive scene of subtle sprite movements where Chizuru weaves between the other girls and takes a shot at the goal. It's nothing amazing, but the little tricks used to disguise the lack of actual movement in the sprites is really clever. I almost recommend watching this scene by itself just for the choreography. Again, I don't think it's hugely impressive, but compare it to the competition and it's pretty top notch. Most modern VNs don't have half this level of movement if any at all.
After practice people split off, Chizuru goes to the classroom to figure out positions for the players and the love rivals ask P-kun if he would like to go home with them. Now I normally don't do this but this choice is actually the most important one in the novel, so I'm going to take a second to pause here and talk about this story's mechanics.
Because the universe hates me Chizuru and Kei share a route path. If I pick the option to stay behind, I'm locked into it, assuming I don't fail the common route somehow. The other option is a crab shoot, because Sumika and Meiya also have a shared path. That makes a little more sense given the novel's theming up to this point but whichever option I pick here I am guaranteed to not be able to follow two of the routes. For several thematic reasons I'm going to choose to follow the Sumika/Meiya choice this time but... well I'll get their the common route isn't too much longer.
Sumika compliments Chizuru's skills at the game and P-kun negs Sumika, so that's fun, loving this choice already.
We get to see the group in their new uniforms... and they're surprisingly okay. I don't hate them. Wow, outfits I don't despise, well done AGE. Can't really get used to Kei in a skirt no matter how hard I try but that's a me thing. Yeah I know her uniform has a skirt but that girl wears pants we all know she's not the dressy type.
The new uniforms come with whole new unique sprites of the characters in the middle of game actions, and you know what these will get overused a tad but they aren't half bad either! They even still blink! Plus this is the only time I can notice Sumika has enough hair to justify that huge ribbon so yeah! Good job.
I'm not even disappointed in P-kun's neging as much as last time I'm so impressed. The girls split into teams to practice catching, yeah this is definitely a sports anime... boring... boring sports anime. Time advances and when practice is over, for some reason I still don't understand, I'm given a choice with only one option. Stay with Sumika and Meiya. Is this a bug? Did the translation just flub something? Is this a censoring issue the patch didn't fix? No idea. Well I pick the only choice and P-kun even comments he doesn't have much of an option which makes me think this is supposed to be a weird meta joke I just don't get. Maybe a confirmation I'm on the Sumika/Meiya route? I legitimately don't know.
That night the three talk about how Sumika has improved dramatically. Good for her. What's apparently not so good is Sumika's parents aren't home today. Not sure why that matters I mean VN parents rarely even get sprites much less have a presence in the narrative. I can count the memorable Heroine parents on one hand and most of them are just stereotypical moms. Anyway P-kun gets punched for considering joining the girls in the bath and wakes up to one of the best CGs in the novel, and I just can't take it anymore I've got to talk about the art.
THE JOKE WAS GETTING OLD ANYWAY
Yeah the art is really good. I like it. I like it a lot. It aged really well and has a lot of things going for it. I struggle to name a handful of other novels that have half of the sheer artistic talent displayed in this novel. I almost have to call on modern software like Ren'Py to come close and even then I'm not sure I can compare Muv-Luv with anything because it just has so much a modern novel would have to measure up to. But at the same time I hate so many individual pieces of art anyone who pulled me aside at a convention and asked me to describe the art in this novel is going to get an earful of negative remarks before I ever get to anything positive. In fact I may hate more art in this novel then I like but I can confidently say the art is very good and I like it as a whole.
Now if you find that statement contradictory I can't say I blame you because my blatant, outspoken, visceral dislike of several assets does not on paper sound conducive to a positive view. But I need to really delve deeply into this to explain why I can hold these seemingly conflicting opinions so strap in this is going to take up the rest of today's lecture.
I already covered the montages and opening title screen in part 1 so I won't repeat myself here but you might want to go back and reread those specific sections to refresh yourself on my opinion. If that sounds like too much work the skinny is that the opening montage is garbage, the title cards are better, and the opening movie at the end of the prologue is amazing. Now that I've primed you for that quality curve memorize it because that is the exact same metric the entire art DEPARTMENT must have followed because every single asset in this novel follows the exact. same. trajectory. In general, the backgrounds in Extra are terrible but some are good and a few are fantastic. In general, the assets in Extra are pretty good but some are terrible and some are fantastic. In general, the sprites are fantastic but some are good and a few are terrible. It's almost like someone pinned a giant poster of an exponential growth curve on the wall and said "Guys! This is the model for our art. I'll add a thumb tack to it every time I get a new piece of work for the quality I think it holds and when I can't see the line anymore the novel's done and you can all go see your kids again."
I genuinely don't know where to begin here because no matter which category of stuff I pick I'm going to end up repeating myself by the time I get to the last topic so I guess I'll save the most interesting category for last and start with the backgrounds.
DEAR, GOD these backgrounds are just terrible. They're muddy and bland and clearly never saw a smoothing tool. When drawing trees and grass the artist is generous if they don't smudge a green cloud around and call it a plant. Outdoor areas like the road to the school and the lacrosse field are one solid color, except they're covered in random streaks and dirt marks like someone wiped their greasy hands on the canvas. Things in the distance often blur like P-kun seriously needs glasses and straight lines often become fuzzy and pixilated when too many objects cluster together like the views of the town from the hill. The subway car has a dozen advertisements that are literally indecipherable, in fact almost every sign you can try to read anywhere in the novel is a blurry mess where even if you CAN read the symbols they're so foggy I feel like I need MY eyes checked. The water effect at the dock looks like a blue tarp was left over some bumpy dirt and almost every skybox is a blue-gray mush, blurry stars, or a halfway decent sunset with cotton ball clouds.
AND THE SCHOOL! MY GOD THE SCHOOL! Why does everything look so disgusting? You could make an argument that seeing dirt stains on the road is realistic. You're wrong but theirs an argument. But everything at the school is just covered in smudges. The gate, the tiles, the buildings, the map by the door, the chalkboard, the walls, the desks, THE DOJO, the field, the trees, the windows it just never ends! This place is a health hazard why is everything covered in filth! I have to believe that at least some of this is because this novel came out before 4k monitors but the thought of seeing some of these backgrounds in even LOWER res is terrifying.
So I hate all the backgrounds right? Nope, the aquarium is amazingly detailed and the amusement park which actually SHOULD look kind of dirty is really colorful and fun. Their are a plethora of background characters dotted throughout locations like the classroom, the date areas, the walk to school etc. and while some are pretty bad and shaded slightly off most of those are passable to pretty expressive. My favorite background in the game is the hill behind the school you can see in the intro movie because the slightly blurry distance effect actually works and the lighting is on point. The shadows for some reason are usually pretty good and at a few places you can even see background characters reflected in windows and glass surfaces which is an amazing touch. Even the worst background in the novel, that courtyard of grass and trees that only appears in one scene, has a REALLY good picture of a campfire. I can't name you a background that doesn't have a flaw but I can't name you a background that doesn't have SOMETHING good to look at either. It's like someone drew a rough sketch of every location in a few days, put off finishing the work to draw in a few details, and then ran out of time before the release date so they rushed the last few finishing touches they could and turned in half finished rough drafts for the majority of their contribution with the four or so actually passable images on top of the pile so no one would notice.
Lets switch gears now though and talk about the chibi scenes because I'm a picky bastard when it comes to chibi art and I can be a lot more positive about that category. So the backgrounds for all the chibi scenes are drawn to resemble children's art with large amounts of white space, scribbled color that doesn't even try to fit the lines, smudging and blurring (done right this time) and while I can't say it's my favorite it's a passable art style. The actual characters have a few quirks but in general look pretty good and have reasonably cute proportions. In general the sprite style transfers really well to this more simplistic artform but Chizuru and Meiya kind of get shafted with their hair not exactly simplifying well. Chizuru's braids are very jagged and distracting while Meiya has a literal curtain of hair in her ponytail. The fact that the chibis can actually move and get some freedom to express themselves is a godsend though. Small actions like Kei lifting P-kun or the "walking" animation from the opening scene are just fantastic even if they are "simple." Some of the proportions are a little off between scenes though. Kouzuki grows to double her previous size after the race with Takahashi only to shrink back down to barely taller then P-kun for her final chibi scene, but if that's my only major complaint they didn't do too bad. Everything is pretty passable here.
The CGs are... just all over the place. I know I haven't even gotten close to this point in the narrative yet but all of the 18+ CGs with exactly ONE exception are the worst in the novel. Meiya and Kei's especially are just uncomfortable to look at with their strange faces and contorted positions. I'm also not entirely sure the artist knew how breasts work because they do not crease like that in real life. Some of them get really blurry, Meiya taking her shirt off as an example, the Onsen scenes are supposed to look steamy but kind of just have a blur filter. Putting those aside quality still varies, this team REALLY knew how to draw sunsets, pretty much anything with evening lighting is great. Night CGs are pretty good too since they didn't have to draw details but anything in the day is a toss up between passable and decent. I wasn't a fan of the close ups on the character's faces for kiss scenes, I think the backgrounds are kind of lazy and the actual expressions are a little bit uh... unexpressive? I don't know they just didn't do it for me. In fact faces in general were pretty hit or miss this whole novel in the CGs. Some of them definitely looked kind of blobby like they were clay molded to look like a person rather then actually being a person but when they were good they were REALLY good. I'm definitely going to do a 10 best and worst CGs of Extra once I finish the plot so I'll come back to this topic but for now total mixed bag.
Now I really, REALLY want to talk about the sprites to wrap up this topic but I just don't have the space. Part 6 will have to cover that monster of a hill and we'll see how much I can get through after that. I'll need to go through poses, outfits, talk about the unique use of the assets, the works. So look forward to that next time. Maybe then I can finally reach the end of the common route.

2020.11.28 15:51 Tuisdheisj Why I feel like I’m the most depressed Pokémon Master ever...

So, I’m in my mid-late 20s now, so I’ve been playing since Red/Blue came out in the U.S. Pokémon was, and is, still the most important thing in my life. It is my one true passion. Currently typing this while walking on a highway, so sorry for any typos.
Growing up, I had one best friend in my neighborhood who got into Pokémon 2 years after I did (Gold/Silver era). Of course, I had the games when they came out too. He, as well as a couple friends in my elementary school, would spend all day with each other every single day as kids and just be playing Gold/Silver the entire time until Ruby/Sapphire came out, and be link battling and link trading all the time, too.
Well, after some time into 3rd Gen and before 4th Gen, I noticed the friends I had grown up with started to drift away from Pokémon. The battles started fading, the trading started fading, my friendships started fading...By the time that Gen 4 was about halfway through its life cycle, none of my friends played Pokémon anymore. We were around ages 13-14 at this time.
I just constantly contemplate how we grew up as best friends and Pokémon was the core to our friendship, and how people can just choose to leave it, after all of those amazing years. I could personally never leave my friends like that, so I stuck with it. I didn’t take a single break from Pokémon, even to this day. So, after all of these years, I still play every single day (not joking) and constantly reminisce about the “good days.”
It genuinely hurts because I like....can see myself in 3rd person almost when I look back at memories in my mind and just see us all laughing and having a great time when we’d game together and link trade/battle. And all of these memories just flood my head constantly and it hurts, ya know? How I’m the sole Pokémon Master left of our friend group and will never experience times like those again because we physically can’t go back to that time or those exact moments again.
Then when I play Red/Blue/Yellow or Gold/SilveCrystal, it’s almost like in my mind I place myself in the manga world of Pokémon and picture us as kids on a real Pokémon adventure. Or in the games themselves and I see my character from the first person like I’m actually in the game with those graphics around me and whatnot. I don’t know, my mind gets intense when I start thinking of nostalgic Pokémon. And it sucks that I’m considered weird if I’m in public talking to today’s generation of young Pokémon fans all about Pokémon. It’s like “hey, wow, this guy never grew up.” :/ I see myself as a young kid still still in that time so when reality hits that I’m mid-late 20s, I get down on myself hard. And in the dating world, it’s like...yeah, I’ve had some baddies and some would tell me “oh yeah, Pokémon is cool!” but it’s like...they’re not REAL fans like I am, ya know? I feel like I’ll never find a girl who’s into Pokémon just how I am, so that’s always a sucky thought too.
Anyway, I’ve stuck with Pokémon all of these years, buy every game that comes out, get every game’s PokéDex complete, and just prove to myself over and over that I’m the real Pokémon fan since the very beginning. I don’t know. It’s a huge nostalgic / sentimental thing I guess. I even carry my original GameBoy, Advance, DS, & 3DS with all of my original Pokémon games on me at all times, JUST on the off-chance I’ll find someone else who thinks like I do or feels the same or is a real, true fan to always be up for a battle or trade.
Anyway, I constantly see myself in the 3rd person as the only one left who’s still holding a GameBoy in my hand while everyone else moved on and left me and weren’t the real fans like I am, who I hoped they always were.
I’d put a TL;DR, but I’d rather you read my experience. Fair note: I typed all of this over the past 2 miles now of walking on a highway at 9AM. I don’t know what I’m doing with my life. I’m also coming down from my marijuana high. But I feel like this when sober too.

Looking for a cool kid who likes and wants to do cool things with their life. I train for Triathlons, I rock climb, like hiking and want to get into photography. Negs Upfront: I suffer from seasonal depression, I was isolated for 24 years of my life and abused physically and mentally for a lot of it. As a result of it I'm really easy going, don't really get angry, I like fixing things and really enjoy helping out. High stress situations don't really impact me much, I also like cooking, reading manga, manwha, comics, and watching anime and movies. I am terrified of heights, but I'll jump out of airplanes and scale hills and mountains oh and rock climb. Sometimes I make no sense, and I have a eidetic memory so sorry if I get too quiet or too happy I'm either in a really good place or in a moderately awful place where I feel being quiet is best.
"You are the aspect of resiliency" - My Therapist and most of my HR team.
Pros:
I'm easy going, I like trying new things I love swimming more then I like running, I don't mind driving, and I overcome a lot of issues on my own most of the time unless I need help. I am balanced and do yoga and meditate too, I like being both inside and outside. I love being in love, and I'm usually pretty positive. My friends think I'm funny and either enjoy my cooking or don't want to cook in their own homes if I'll do it for them. I also clean, it's really weird to discover after years of dating that is something that I need to ask for and mention. I am deeply into Game Theory, Wisecrack and Kurzesaget on Youtube.
If anything up there interests you. Just say Hi and lets talk.
