Till the arrival of Lepus Timidus, it was a debate. They happen occasionally, sometimes get heated, but are generally nothing to worry about (unless you're a participant). Heck, you might even learn something.

With the arrival of Lepus Timidus, though, this one turned into a troll fest.
FYT


Its pretty much true, with Nayld, Nicoa and myself, the last debate topic was a discussion, although LT did troll a little in the last topic, it wasn't this bad, right now Nicoa and LT are just bouncing and rebounding at each other.

*stares, dumbfounded, then breaks into raucous laughter*

...are you kidding me?! Your entire debate has practically been how Shapers are evil, heartless Nazis and how the Rebels are saintly heroes forced to do evil by the bad guys, repeated over and over and over, despite evidence and good sense to the contrary, with a side of how Outsiders are the equivalent of Nazi supporters. Then you claim that you don't repeat the same assertions constantly, even when soundly refuted? Ha! And I thought the Rebels were hypocrites!

FYI, regarding your little jab at me, you simply disagreeing with me does not make the argument 'soundly refuted', no matter how much you say otherwise. At best, it makes it contested.

With geneforge texts, you don't want to hear Norse-Heavy metal while you read how you will attack a shaper, and on a second point, it just doesn't seem his style.

I only hope this thread doesn't turn into another "What is better, Shapers or Rebels" debate. The UBB can only take so much... :rolleyes:
Long live the Shapers.

That is the most ironic post I have ever read, the exact same people, argue about the exact same thing, only this time, it is a stand-off between Nicoa and LT, last time, Nayld and I joined in the fun.

Geneforge 5 - March Update in Geneforge 4: Rebellion
Shock Trooper
Member # 9906

Now that I've spent two months working reasonably hard on Geneforge 5, I can start posting some monthly updates about it.As time goes on, I'm talk about the interface upgrades (considerable), the game system and spell system upgrades, and all the little things that will go into finishing this series.

This will indeed be the last game in the Geneforge saga. At last, you can bring the war to an end. Coming up with a plausible way for one lone person to help end this enormous conflict has been very difficult. The complexity of the game and the storyline is making me a bit dizzy. Still, I think I have it under control.

The storyline and game structure will be much closer to Geneforge 1 and 2. You will wander around and interact with five (FIVE!) different factions. Eventually, you can choose one to fight for. There are all of the options you probably predicted from the previous games, and others that might take you by surprise.

You will start, as usual, as a lone Shaper/lifecrafter. You will be able to choose to be either a Shaper character (the old three choices) or as one of the six different rebel classes. Yes, I am putting in the "missing" sixth character class from the rebel side.

The spell system will be mostly the same, but I am completely reworking how buffs work to make them more interesting and player friendly. I'll go into this more in later months. Suffice it to say for now that the "OK, this fight is tough, I'll put 12 buffs on every character. Zzzz." system had to go.

The big design question for me now is how to handle the "evolved" versions of the creations. Geneforge 4 had stronger versions of creations that started dying immediately so you had to use them quickly. They appear to not have been at all popular. I want to find a better way to approach this. (Note: Making creations during combat is not an option.)

I hope to release the game for the Mac in November. Since I've been making good progress, this seems doable.

To tell the truth, I have never seen the magical history tour, but I can guess what it is.

For some reason, the word "Codpiece" amuses me, anyway thats probably stuffing or an infection, either way I don't think it intimidates too many people.

What is better Shapers or Rebels? in Geneforge 4: Rebellion

Member # 9906

quote:
So you admit that the Outsider loyalists (apart from the two year olds, the little dears) have free will, and know that their actions assist in the continuation of an era of oppression and genocide. Nice to know that you're willing to concede that point.

As for the two year olds, you're right. I don't support the targeting of two year olds, as they aren't enemies of the Rebels. But if they happen to get killed while their parents are being targeted, that's just tough. Stuff like that happens in war all the time.

You don't think two year olds were killed in the carpet bombings of Dresden, the nuclear bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the napalming of Vietnam, the bombing campaign against Serbia, the artillery bombardments and air strikes against the West Bank and Lebanon...? I could go on and on, but I don't think I need to drill the point home with a sledgehammer.
Ok, I will respond to this quote divided by paragraphs.
Paragraph 1: The average outsider doesn't know jack about the shapers or rebels, all they know is that the shapers are the government, and that makes them better. So, yes they do have free will, just ignorant free will.

Paragraph 2: Thats why I don't understand why you are so pro-war, do you like killing children?

Paragraph 3:God dammit, GENEFORGE IS NOT LIKE THE REAL WORLD!!!!!!!!

quote:
Nice to see that you're willing to concede another point. So rebellion against the Shapers is justified, nay, a moral responsibility?

No one here believes that the massacre of the Drayks was reasonable, but the rebellion is not justified if they use the same, hated tactics that the shapers use.(like if a country went to war with another country because they where cruel in battle, but then the attacking country uses the same cruelty, its called being big, fat, hypocrite.)
However, you seem to say that the shapers fighting back is wrong, their current position is fine, if the average grunt isn't a complete arse.

quote:
Shaper loyalists must die.
Aha! But according to you earlier, all people who support the shapers must die, so all those ignorant farmers MUST die, by your point of view.

quote:
Like the Germans under the Nazi regime? The people get the government that they deserve. If the Shaper loyalists refuse to stand up and fight against the draconian policies of their government while supporting genocide and enslavement both materialistically and in spirit, then they deserve everything they get.

Do you think my Slavic ancestors in the camps cried when German 'civilians' were killed in the indiscriminant aerial bombardment of Germany? And no, this isn't an appeal to emotion, it's just a simple observation. If you and your family are being exterminated and enslaved, the fact that a few 'civilians' who either implicitly or explicitly supported your extermination were killed in the fight for your freedom is the least of your worries.

I have said this before, the average citizen doesn't see the bad side of the shapers.

quote:
Haha, good stuff. So I can construct bombs for terrorists, but as long as I'm not the one who actually detonates them and kills kaffir, I'm absolved of blame.

If the terrorists stole it from a storage complex, no the person who made the bomb isn't, what you are suggesting is that a person made a bomb and then GAVE it to the terrorists, it isn't like that in the situation you quoted.

quote:
False. It is not genocide to target those who are actively or passively enslaving and destroying your people. The fact that they happen to be part of a nation or political group is incidental (nice try, Diki).
Last time I checked, there are no drayk/drakon labor workforces and they rarely die in battle, so yes it is genocide.

quote:
It is not genocide to target Shaper loyalists, any more than it was genocide for the Yanks to blow up Nazis and Nazi sympathisers. And if anyone gets in the way, tough titty for them!

Even if people hate a fraction, it doesn't mean killing them en mass isn't genocide.

My god LT. Oh and by the way, I haven't read the posts after the one I quoted, as soon I saw this I had an urge to respond, so don't smack me if someone else already said what I'm saying.

I think Geneforge 5 should have new skills and it should end with the drakons separating from the Rebellion and destroying both the rebels and the shapers.
I could see it happening, that way, the people who support rebels but hate drakons will have their hour. (oh and by the way, do you mean the drakons will fight the rebels and shapers, or destroy the shapers and rebels?
