I'll be on Vancouver Island during May Long. I'll read up and get a post in by Thursday. Should I keep with the current timeline, or jump ahead myself?

(This sort of became a rant on roleplaying in CRPGs in general, not just on sex and gender in the games. As such, it probably doesn't really belong here. Meh, take it as thou wilt.)

I see two separate approaches to roleplaying when it comes to CRPGs: narrow and deep, and shallow and wide. With the first, the player is assigned a character with a predetermined personality from the get go. With these types of games, I don't mind roleplaying, because I know all the content in the game will be based on that character. Of course, it's up to the developers to make sure the character is actually compelling, and that a wide range of people would actually buy the game to play that character. Not that many CRPGs go this route, though other genres have this quite a bit.

With the other approach - wide but shallow - players are given free reign when it comes to their characters personality and background (though they usually start out as farmers - ugh). Most CRPGs go this route. But since there's such a large number of possible builds, the developers cannot make the game a deep roleplaying experience. It's not really their fault, it's a fundamental limitation. Until AI progresses significantly, you're not going to be able to generate compelling on-the-fly content like a live GM can.

With these types of games, I rarely roleplay, for two reasons. First, open-ended CRPGs usually have a ham-fisted approach to 'roleplaying'. In the D&D based games, this always takes the form of Good versus Evil choices and Law versus Chaos choices. With this model, you're not playing roles - you're playing stereotypes. Apparently, Good characters always turn down quest rewards, while Evil characters gleefully slit any NPCs throat given the chance, even if there's no real motivation for doing so. The problem isn't with D&D choice of axises, but with the fact that no rigid system can completely capture everything. Take Avernum's reputation system for example. Does a low reputation mean that the party hasn't done anything yet, or that the party has done both heroic and heinous deeds?

The second reason why I rarely roleplay in those CRPGs is that it doesn't make a difference anyway. Nethergate-style games are few and far between - most developers don't want to restrict access to game content based on character choices more that absolutely necessary. Typically, your character is only given a roleplaying choice at the end of every quest (usually when you decide what to do with the boss), but rarely at the beginning or during the quest. Your character's personality ceases to affect gameplay. If that's the case, why bother expending effort creating a personality? Why make your character a different sex (or gender, for that matter), if it will never come up anyway?

No. Don't. The Xanth series is a bottomless mire that will suck dry your very soul. I'm exaggerating, but not by much. I remember the first few being all right, in a campy sort of way. But they just don't end, and all the jokes and plotlines get recycled after a while. I don't remember where I quit, but a quick visit to Wikipedia tells me he's over thirty now.

Deathmatch Tournament -- Round Two, Part Two in General
Guardian
Member # 6670

Match #1:

I could post a long winded description like those before me, but this match is going to proceed very simply. Alorael shows up, gets into position, and waits. And waits. The Silent Assassin never shows up. Unsurprising, as he is not, and never was, an actual member.

Winner: Alorael (By default.)

Match #2:

ADoS realizes that he has a difficult match ahead of him and plans accordingly. He unleashes a barrage of posts, most legitimate, some not. Arancaytar, surreptitiously checking things out at work by using Lynx through a daisy chain of SSH connections to evade site blocking, is unable to keep up. Is this image in ADoS's latest post merely a new logo for the Encyclopaedia? Or is it a monstrous GIF with flickering fuzzy turtles that would put Anonymous to shame? He sure isn't capable of verifying this with his boss looking over his shoulder; Mr. B. has his pristine reputation to keep.

It's when Arancaytar gets a complaint about how slow he was to lock ADoS's TMBG slash thread that he wearily stumbles upon his counterattack. Despite his incredible offensive, ADoS still has a critical Achilles Heel, and as a moderator of General, Arancaytar is able to exploit it. By posting a certain banner in General's header, ADoS is felled in one stroke.

Winner: Arancaytar

Match #3:

In the end, it'll be a toss up if Drakefyre even makes an appearance. But even if he did, he'd be held up at the entrance. See, you must be this tall to enter the Arena, and our little James hasn't hit his growth spurt yet.

Winner: Goldenking (By default.)

Match #4:

When you're up against the Big Guns, you have to be elusive. Ash Lael disappears into the woodwork, making it nigh impossible for Dintiradan to get a lock on. Whenever Ashby makes one of his appearances, it's always done with the fanfare of CCM. Most of it's repetitive, shallow drivel, but there's enough diamonds in the rough to distract Dintiradan long enough so a devastating counterattack cannot be launched. Of course, Ash Lael isn't capable of doing significant physical damage, so with armour factored in, Dintiradan is able to simply ignore most attacks. This looks like it's going to be a long slog.

Or is it? You see, Evil Overlords have traditionally been found lacking in the creativity department, and Dintiradan is no exception. The Creator, on the other hand, has it in spades. Ash Lael eventually whips up some potions of his own design and fells Dintiradan with an amazing alchemical assault. As it turns out, Good is not always dumb.

Winner: Ash Lael

Match #5:

It's often been pointed out that the concept of a Deathmatch is hopelessly biased against some Classes. This match points out why. Emperor Tullegolar has invested much of his energy into shaping his dystopia and perfecting the art of coercion. Not one to back down from histrionics, our resident emperor is quick to point this out. For most Deathmatch participants, this would be a fatal flaw because it leave an opening for the opponent. Tullegolar, however, has a knack for combining offence with defence, and sends a withering barrage of satire toward his nemesis.

Nemesis, of course, shrugs this off and begins attacking. No matter what tactic the emperor throws at him, he cannot get a rise out of his adversary, and Nemesis continues on his course of action, unfaltering. It seems Tullegolar must resort to physical combat. How demeaning. How the match proceeds from here is tough to see. It's tough to gauge the level of Nemesis fighting ability. It just never seems to be used much (though this may just be due to the fact that everyone else goes missing whenever he makes an appearance). His opponent, however, is a known canister connoisseur. The green skinned Tullegolator is able to pull off a shaky victory.

Winner: Emperor Tullegolar

Match #6:

Evil dictator versus evil dictator. The power of the atom versus the power of the atom. This is a very close match. This match is incredibly tough to call - once this game of global thermonuclear war begins, all bets are off. In the end, the balance of power lies slightly with Stareye. In the incredibly unlikely case that both contestants are able to stave off mutually assured destruction, Zeviz's supply will begin to run low. Of course, he could always restock his arsenal, but you need reactors to enrich your supply. And Stareye has a monopoly in that regard.

One thing's for certain - I'm not waiting around at ground zero to test my prediction.

Winner: Stareye

Match #7:

Salmon may possess firearms, but with his military training, Student of Trinity is no slouch with a rifle either. After an inconclusive opening gunfight, both turn to more exotic weaponry. Stud. grabs his rocks, Salmon his pole. Our scaly friend immediate turns to trolling. Unfortunately for him, this activity requires you to place yourself in a location of prominence. Once Salmon jumps to a high location to deliver his attack, Student of Trinity nails him with a well placed rock. Salmon is knocked off his roof. Again.

Winner: Student of Trinity

Match #8:

It was inevitable that one of these star cross'd lovers would meet their fate at the other's hands. TM opens the fight with a torrent of kanji. Jewels hugs, cuddles, and otherwise smoothers him. TM responds with a exhaustive list of every PDN he has ever had. Jewels hugs, cuddles, and otherwise smoothers him. TM downs some DXM and displays his gigantic globules. Jewels hugs, cuddles, and otherwise smoothers him.

Spot a trend here? Much of TM's attacks have little effect on Jewels. But Gizmo lacks a single offensive attack. All her hugs do is delay the inevitable. In the end, it's the long promised precipitation that does her in.

Winner: Terror's Martyr

As Tychius and his students formed a semicircle in the centre of the clearing, most of the Hunters suddenly found themselves work to do elsewhere. Travelling with mages was one thing, witnessing a portal being opened was another. Actually, Tychius had stated that they weren't going to open a portal, but rather were "performing a probing exercise". Celeste found the distinction overly fine. She stood near the power crystals, and watched the mages at work. It wasn't much to look at; the robed figures stood nearly motionless, only their hands moving. They chanted softly, their voices barely carrying over the wind. In the centre of the clearing, a faintly glowing blue orb hovered four feet above the ground. Some of the Hunters looked at it as if they had expected something more grand. The ball pulsated slowly, but other than that nothing indicated that the mages were vainly trying to establish a connection to caverns located leagues upon leagues below them.

The orb blinked out, and most of the apprentices heaved a sigh and visibly relaxed. Tychius left the group, withdrawing a handkerchief from a pocket as he walked to Celeste. "We cannot detect anything at the Tower Colony. The portal there must have been razed. I am sorry."

Celeste nodded; she had expected something like this. The last time the Dominion had sent someone to Avernum, the emissary had made it down to the Tower portal. She had not returned. "It had to be tried. Unless your students cannot continue, we should continue with the plan."

"They'll manage," Tychius responded, already walking back. Louder, he declared, "Begin the ritual anew. To Fort Avernum, this time." There was less of a wait this time. After of few minutes, the glowing ball reappeared. It seemed to be stronger this time, the blue more vivid. Celeste saw Tychius grin; apparently, there was something at Fort Avernum. The smile slowly slid off the Archmage's face, however, and it took Celeste a moment to realize why.

The orb was growing, its bright surface covered by a darker corona. A drawn out groan from behind her made Celeste back away from the power crystals. Within moments they too were outlined by the same dark blue flickers. The few remaining hunters in the clearing were fleeing it with frightened faces. When Celeste looked back at the mages, she wanted to as well. What floated above the grass now was a portal in true, its edges outlined in bright light. But what lay within it was not the other side of the clearing, nor the caverns of Avernum. Rather, it was a swirling vortex of glowing red. Tychius was shouting something to his students. She couldn't make out what he said as the creaking from the crystals behind her were blotting out nearly all the noise in the clearing. Perhaps it was her imagination, but it seemed the wind had shifted, now blowing towards and through the portal, if portal it was.

Just as the moans from the power crystals were reaching a crescendo, the portal shrunk to a point, then disappeared. Silence reigned once more in the clearing, punctuated by the gasps of apprentices as they collapsed to the group. Tychius was the only one who remained standing, albeit shakily. "What was that?" Celeste managed to ask.

Someone rushed behind her to inspect the crystals. "The power crystals," one of the Hunter captains demanded, "are they damaged?"

"We're fine too, thanks," one of the apprentices muttered darkly. His neighbour quickly motioned him to be silent.

Tychius made his way toward Celeste and the Hunter captain, blotting his forehead. "I'll have to inspected them more closely to be sure," he declared a few moments after passing his eyes over them. "I'll know for certain after two, three days."

"What?" the captain sputtered. "We cannot wait that long. The internment camps are restless enough as is!"

"Your... camps... can stay as they are for a little while longer yet," the Archmage responded with a grimace. "Besides," he added in a lower voice for Celeste, "my students will need their rest after that shock."

"Tychius," Celeste asked again, "what was that?"

"A most unlikely event," he responded. "There was a portal down there. Unfortunately for us, it was in use as we tried probing it. Miraculously for us, we were able to sever it before it fully opened."

"And if it had fully opened? What would have happened?"

Tychius smiled grimly. "Bad things." He left it at that.

"At least there is someone still down there," the Hunter captain said, more politely this time. "When you do try again, how can we be sure you mages won't kill us?" Well, slightly more politely.

"There are some schemes for ensuring this sort of thing will not happen," Tychius responded. "However, they do require the cooperation of the mages running the portal on the other side. Until then, I can promise that we will be... more cautious on our next attempt." He raised an eyebrow when the captain looked like he was about to burst out again. "Unless you have any better ideas?"

He didn't.

***

"All the fires have been started, Battlemage."

Brand nodded. "Then let us be off, before anyone sees us." He mounted his horse, and his group began riding after him as he made for the trees.

The dealings with the Dominion had not gone well. He knew that they would be reluctant to drop their alliance with the Hunters, but he was sure they would give at least some assistance to the Phoenix Empire. In the end, they had become quite heated.

"Only a fool grasps a serpent by the tail and hopes he is not bitten. But you, you hope to direct the serpent's strikes as well."

Well. Perhaps the Council members were not the only ones who had lost their temper.

As he reached the trees, he stopped for a moment to consider his work. This village only had one granary on the outskirts, but he had ordered it set aflame anyway. Inside the village proper, the small barracks was also ablaze. Empty, however; a shame. When he had encountered the courier bearing the dire news of the Hunter attack as he was leaving the Dominion's lands, he had immediately dismissed his advice to head north and rejoin the rest of the forces. He and his small force of battlemages were far east of Kriszan, and well south of the path the army would take as it moved toward North Karnold. The few Hunters he had encountered had been shocked to find members of the 51st Regiment here. He and his men had killed all they had fought directly, but were careful to let those who watched from a distance escape. He wanted the Hunters to know the folly of turning on the Phoenix Empire.

And if the Hunters wondered why a group of battlemages bearing no insignias were attacking the lands so close to the Dominion border... If Brand was unable to coerce the Dominion to turn on the Hunters, the least he could do was strain the relations between them.

A Question on C++ in General

By Nioca:

I was curious as to whether C/C++ works on both Windows and Macintosh, or whether it's strictly a Windows language.
I could just cry...

Anyway. If you're working on a Windows box, all bets are off on where your include files are located. If you're using a GUI compiler (like Dev-C++), you should be able to check where it looks for the include files directory (I'll boot into Vista when I get home and double-check this).

And as the previous post says, do try to use the standard libraries whenever possible instead of OS-specific ones. Of course, for any moderately complicated program, you'll have no choice but to use the platform features (for instance, POSIX features are available on Mac OS X and most Unix-like systems, but not for Windows unless you do some acrobatics first).

EDIT: Hmmm. Apparently I don't have Dev-C++ anymore, but MinGW. The directory is C:\MinGW\include, which probably doesn't help you much.

So where are you guys going with this? Yes, "you guys"... blah blah blah busy blah blah blah. It's overused, but that doesn't stop it from being true. I'm running out of midnight oil here, and when I do have free time I'd rather spend it in meatspace. Are you moving toward immediate closure? Is so, don't expect any more posts from me - I would be more of a hindrance than a help. The few good ideas I have would really complicate the situation. Even if I did a simple catch up post (Demetrius and Brand hear of the attacks, the portal is finished and trade and deportation begins, and agents are set in place up north), I wouldn't be doing anything to end the thing sooner.

On the other hand, I'd rather not bail out completely if you all want to continue. I'll be more of a passive entity - say the conservative elements of the Council rein Demetrius in. I'll post every week and a half, two weeks. Ugly, I know, but better than just vanishing.

Simulated Reality in General
Guardian
Member # 6670
Profile Homepage #4
First two questions: Meh. I've always thought of simulated reality as multiplayer solipsism. Unfalsifiable, and in need of a good shave from that Ockham fellow.

Second two questions: If we are simulated, I see two possibilities for the environment that simulates us.

It could be a universe just like ours, with similar or identical laws of physics. If so, there will be limits on what can be computed/simulated. An increase in the amount of information in the simulation will correspond with an increase in the physical size of the simulator, no matter how efficient the space is used (not my area of speciality, but even quantum computers will not be able to store an infinite amount of information with a finite number of qubits). The speed of light also puts a hard limit on how fast communication within the simulator can take place, though it doesn't pose a significant problem for the simulation (however, in my opinion it shows Omega Point to be a load of bunk).

I don't think the simulator could exist in a universe like ours, because then we could theoretically make one ourselves, and cause the infinite recursion problem described on the linked Wikipedia page. The alternative is that the simulator exists in a universe unlike our own, not governed by our laws of physics. Of course, believing in such a transcendent reality fits more under some religions. Who knows? Maybe the End Times will be heralded with "STACK OVERFLOW" appearing in the skies. The Day of Reckoning is here - time to dump core. :P

Another possibility is to make a whitelist for archiving, instead of trying to archive the entire board. That way, PPP users could nominate worthy topics to be archived, instead of saving the whole bloody mess.
