    I'd try to talk you out of quitting, but frankly, if you are put off by a small thing like this, you're obviously not very emotionally invested in the game.

    I'm pretty sure Sharp does it because he's used to RPOL, which has a built-in character portrait feature, as opposed to him trying to be distinct and original.

    I know Siriel and Falcon hang out at RPOL as well, so it's not weird they'd picked up the same habit. And in my own defense, I use alterning portraits depending on Eisen's specific mood, so there's sort of a point to it.

    Y'know what's interesting about Wheatley?

    It actually shows that he's an incredibly powerful A.I. designed with parameters to act as idiotic as possible. He comes up with one or two very solid plans when he can, and is actively frustrated by his own nature, getting really agitated when someone brings it up.

    Like his design for the final boss room, which clearly exceeds Glados's personal security but is screwed up by his programming leading to him leaving flaws in the design.

    Or his final monologue if you let the time limit run out during the fight so the facility will explode instead of actually fighting him.

    I should add that I do appreciate the mini-character portraits if for no other reason then because it helps me keep track of which character I'm talking to. I'm bad at visualizing characters without actual visual cues and if all I have to go by is text, it takes a while before characters become distinct to me.

    Indeed.

    Wait, no it isn't.

    ...or is it?

    To be fair, I felt I hadn't been over-dramatic and hyperbolic about something for a while, so I just added that bit in the first part for the hell of it.

    'sides, I haven't written anything non-communicative for over a year--since I dropped out of Codex in, oh, March of last year--so I've technically already gone about doing what I said I'd just started.

    ...Augustus' bio doesn't count, because I just crapped that out in five minutes.

    Ghost, I try not to get emotionally invested in anything, mostly because I can only experience two emotions: annoyance and BLIND RAGE.

    ...

    Well, under normal circumstances. I occasionally become slightly--slightly--down in the dumps. Very occasionally.

    So yeah, annoyance, blind rage, and sadness. That's pretty much all there is to me, emotionally-speaking.


    I'm pretty sure Sharp does it because he's used to RPOL, which has a built-in character portrait feature. So it's more him just being used to it, as opposed to him trying to be original.

    I just assumed that he did it so that discerning his posts from those of other players would be less of a bother. The RPoL thing makes sense, though.

    Did it because I like seeing the character's face in the post, rather than my own avatar. :) It starts the post on the right foot - it's a post about that character, after all, and from their point of view.

    :) That RPol does that 'naturally' in games is icing on the Rpol cake. I was linking to pictures of the character back when I was PBP rping on Yahoogroups, lo these many years before my time on Rpol (I think I started back in 1999? 2000?). Obviously I had to use a link, but.

    Edit: Admittedly, Rpol has certainly gotten me used to it. :D

    I will do what I did with Codex: Keep up it and talk to Miburo/Nik/Yun about it. That's it. Maybe send Cleric some ideas for a mid-game character entrance, but I will never follow through on them, cuz fuck obligations.

    Aww. You'll have to join in one day.

    And you will probably like it. Eventually.

    Daiyoukai Ramza! You hold tremendous mild irritation in your heart! Would you join my Lightish Red Lantern Corps?

    Maybe, but probably not. I really hate entering a RP in the middle, since all the IC relationships are (relatively) solidified by then, making me feel left out.
