Title: Poll of The Week
Post by: Zackirus on November 24, 2010, 06:39:36 PM
Welcome to the Poll of The Week, the newest poll(s) to Sinister Design Forums. What happens is that each week their will be a new poll up, that will be discussed. However, once the time has expired (7 Days) the poll results will be stored and a new poll topic will be created. The poll question could be anything about TSoG. Poll ideas can be suggested, once the poll has changed. Also, all arguments and discussion about the previous poll should end when the poll is changed. Remember to Vote and Discuss! I made a mistake with something on the old poll, so: the poll of the week will be restarted here, sorry for the trouble.

Post by: Zackirus on November 27, 2010, 12:16:56 PM
Namlesskitty: It can be considered an opinion because you can decide which ending you get. I would decide to get the Knife Ending. Why? Well because, you will probably get the green orb which will give you 9 speed, so it makes the 6 speed is unnecessary. Also: The missions give you a lot of gold on top of the knife attack.

Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: cyso on November 30, 2010, 07:31:54 PM
I picked the red spriggat because it might gain heat resistance, which might prove useful if there are any other bosses in the game which use pyro attacks.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on December 01, 2010, 07:59:57 PM
I chose frost spriggat because it compliments my fire affinity.

Post by: Duskling on December 01, 2010, 08:01:29 PM
Is it confirmed that there will be a Wood-Folk character? If so, I vote that one since it isn't on the list, as it is the most different.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on December 01, 2010, 08:03:47 PM
I think that's still speculation.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: Duskling on December 01, 2010, 08:06:36 PM
Right then, but that's the one I would pick were it an option, as the Frost Spriggat has been done already, and Red Spriggat is kind of the same thing, so the Spearman is the most original out of the three. The Spearman gets my vote.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week

Is the none option like other or you don't want any more teammates
Title: Re: Poll of The Week

Of the three given options, my choice is the Spearman, as the Wood-Folk is unconfirmed insofar.

I play him as a sniper, only getting close enough to pick someone off when my others are in trouble.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: cyso on December 10, 2010, 09:04:49 PM
I typically use Luca to do that. I also use her to distract and soften up swordsmen since her physical resistance allows her to hang in a long while. I use my hero as one of my main fighters, if not the main fighter.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: ArtDrake on December 11, 2010, 12:14:37 AM
But Luca has no long-range attacks that really do damage...
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: cyso on December 11, 2010, 09:58:38 AM
As a sniper, I use her to kill units that are almost dead at the end of my turn. I don't want to waste another move on them or have them attack me the next turn, so I just use soul suck to finish them off. I have a lot of soul charges, because most enemies who have just enough health to survive the main's attack are finished by soul suck.

Well, seeing as no one really knows CraigStern's mind, it's hard to tell what he has in store. Maybe he'll add a twist so that you can attempt to destroy the Cult, side with the Cult and go into a long battle against however big your Resistance army is, maybe you can get the option to flee and hide in the Hadarac Desert for years until the war is over. There's not telling. My vote: 50%

Title: Re: Poll of The Week

Nope. People were utterly convinced Nelis was a God, but she was just very strong. I think it will be similar for Anu and Yawah. Or they could be made up entirely.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: j3sterg on December 22, 2010, 03:31:34 PM
I'm thinking Anu might be some sort of Creator/stays out of mortals' affairs-type of deity, but I don't think Yawah exists as a god. Cygnus seems too fanatical in eradicating shadowlings and psy-capables, not to mention hiding his(?) face/identity. It seems to me that someone unknown might be pulling the strings. Someone with a grudge against the shadowlings and psy-fighters. Someone powerful, who it has taken decades to recover/build up strength... :-*

The first time I played SoG, I though taht Anu was a true god while Yawah is a false god.
Also, I though the Cult was a band of nonbelivers.

Anu is a made-up god like God, and Allah, and Buddha, and the rest are. I'm sorry if that offends you.

Yawah, I think, may be a very powerful spirit.

in fairness, if you intended to make a point that has nothing to do with anyone on Earth's religon, you should not have said
Anu is a made-up god, like God, and Allah, and Buddha, and the rest.
as people do, funnily enough, take that as having to do with their religon
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: ArtDrake on December 22, 2010, 09:06:35 PM
I was trying to say that Anu was as real, or no more real than, any of those gods. I just hoped no one took offense at the comparison.

Y'see, while any person following a particular god would say that the others are malarky, and anyone not following it would say it's malarky, I distance myself from all, and say they're all malarky. Everyone agrees that Anu isn't real here, but I needed a comparison. Anu is as real to those who believe him as God is to those who believe in Him, and Anu is as silly as people think Buddha is if they are not Buddhist.

And one can interpret my statement however they like. I said that Anu is a made-up god like God, Allah, Buddha and the rest. If the rest are not made-up, then Anu is made-up to a "like" extent to that of the other gods, which is to say, not at all. If some of ours are real, who's to say Anu is not as well. My statement left open possibilities, and im2smart4u chose not to see them.

Yes, but it left these possibilites open only through this above explanation. Your post made it seem as if all of the gods you listed were made up. And I do believe even with the explanation some people will resent that their deity is just as real as a videogame god. And please don't make the fact that im2smart4u interepreted your post to be offensive about his personality. It looked extremely insulting without the explanation, no two ways about it.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: ArtDrake on December 26, 2010, 12:47:26 AM
Fine. Take it the wrong way.

If they resent the idea that their god is as real as a videogame god, and they hold neither a videogame god nor gods they do not worship to be real, then they resent the very idea that some consider the gods they do not worship real, and the god they worship not to be real.

If they are offended by the very idea of other religions, it's their fault, not mine.

And im2smart4u: sorry about calling you a jerk. That wasn't very nice of me. I hope any further animosity between the two of us is based on actions I have not apologized for, on grounds of irreconcilable differences.

Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: bugfartboy on December 30, 2010, 09:35:13 AM
I think that's an unfair question. Arman has a higher speed, but when you factor in shadowport 1&2 they are about equal, and they both have their uses. For example: Arman is better against Fernatus because of Fernatus's mind resistance, but Malis is better against all spirits because of their physical resistance. So I'd say they are about equal.

Mega Stab is way stronger than shadow blast though. It has a 300% backstab bonus, where as shadow blast does not. And I believe the damage formulas usually have mega stab be stronger anyways.

KZ said that Craig told him that Folk-of-the-Woods are either not very powerful with the Gift or not Gifted at all.  This make the Wood-Folk into a much needed contrast to the completely Gifted races such as shadowlings and spriggats.

I voted for pirates, because I think we are on less friendly terms with them compared to Spriggats and Wood-Folk.  I rather see more enemies, then more allies.

Then go join the Twilight forums waaayyy over there. *points* The Wood-Folk are a part of the Telepath world. If you don't like it, then you CAN go join the Twilightians. In Telepath the Wood-Folk are green skinned people that live in the Great Forest. They aren't magical (that we know of) They aren't fairies. If you don't like it, talk to Craig.

Well this is a fantasy world, so there are similarities to fairy tales, but I don't know why you singled out Wood-Folk.  Humans who control the elements and strange races such as spirggats and shadowlings would seem more 'magical' and 'fairly tale-like' then the Folk-of-the-Woods.


Personally, I enjoyed Pirate Pete's drunkenness and funny dialects.

What gave you the impression that Cygnus is weak?  I imagine that Cygnus has to be very powerful in order to be the master of powerful Acolytes such as Fernatus (http://telepath.wikia.com/wiki/Fernatus) and Malekahin (http://telepath.wikia.com/wiki/Malekahin).  Similar to Tastidian, D'Kah is going to be the boss before the final boss.  The theory on Nelis being the final boss is idiotic for numerous reasons.

I do hope you're suggesting "Yawah" and not "Yahweh" as the final boss.

Cygnus is a prophet. He maintains his position because he's convinced everyone that he's in contact with Yawah. That doesn't mean that he's uber powerful.

Cygnus is clearly powerful enough with the Gift to convince people that they are being touched by god (That is clearly what happened in the Bandit Cave and what happened to the mother).  You can't honestly think that it is more likely that the Nelis is boss while Cygnus is a powerless pawn?  That would be just stupid storytelling.

As of now, it is a theory.  Cygnus can use his Gift to make people fell touched by god.  Cygnus' "blessings" are picked up at random, so that explains why Duvalier was the only one who felt it in the cave and why the mother felt it while the father didn't.  I don't think Cygnus knew who he was blessing or where the blessed are, so he had no way to kill Duvalier.

I agree on that. I don't quite understand what made people think that Nelis would be the final boss. Seriously Nelis? Are you kidding? She (if you play the canon ending) is DEAD, and her story probably stops there.

I am 99.9% sure that it is Nelis.
Since there is no evidence whatsoever for the return of the Shadowling Queen, I am willing to put money on it.  Since you are 99.9% sure, the odds of Nelis not being the final boss would be .001 to 1.  Lets each put down a $100. If you win based on the odds, then I will give you $0.10.  On nearly impossible chance that I win, then you will give me $99900.  So are you sure enough to put money on it?

Post by: SmartyPants on February 06, 2011, 10:33:42 PM
I think it will be Heat, because Craig made a portrait for Fire Gate (http://images.wikia.com/telepath/images/6/6f/Attack_FireGate.png) at the time he first created portraits of D'Kah and Cygnus.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: Duskling on February 06, 2011, 10:38:07 PM
I also think it is Heat, what with Fernatus mentioning bringing down Yawah's wrath down upon Duvalier and the crew, and since he had Pyro Hail, I'm thinking Cygnus will have Fire Gate.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: Idozen Cair on February 09, 2011, 07:56:22 AM
I don't think there would be 2 acolyte bosses of the same affinity.

Duskling: I don't get your idea. Bringing down Yawah's wrath and having Pyro Hail has nothing to do with Cygnus.

Title: Re: What Affinity Is Cygnus?
Post by: SmartyPants on February 09, 2011, 10:06:57 AM
I don't think there would be 2 acolyte bosses of the same affinity.
The alternate ending showed two portraits of acolytes that weren't Fernatus or Malekahin.  One will have the Cold element, while the other will have the Light element.  I think Prophet will be able to use multiple elements like the Shadowling Queen.  One of these attacks is likely Fire Gate, so I voted Heat.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: Idozen Cair on February 09, 2011, 10:18:40 AM
But you didn't state that you think he's multi-affinity earlier, did you? My idea:

1. Cygnus may be a ruthless prophet who has very strong faith in Yawah, but his personality(from what I know)suggests that he's a man of peace, not war. Therefore I don't think he will have such combat-oriented skills or a combat-oriented affinity.

2. If you want to talk about skills, go to the stat guessing, not here.

*Since it is a video game, I am pretty sure that we would fight Cygnus, because he would be a waste of a character to not be a boss.
*Game mechanics aside, Cygnus doesn't seem that peaceful.  He used the military to get power instead of more peaceful means.  He trains his Acolytes for combat roles instead of just healing.

Because, if he is forced to fight, he'll bring down Yawah's wrath, not his enlightenment, which would have probably failed at that point. So, he wouldn't be trying to make you see the light, so to speak, he'd try to make you feel like you are burning in hell for defying his god.

I assumed you were saying that we wouldn't fight him, because he doesn't have the ability or "skills" to be in combat.  Either way, your idea doesn't make sense for a video game.

I said Cygnus "will be able to use multiple elements like the Shadowling Queen" which is different from saying "he's going to have attacks like Nelis".  I do think that they will share Fire Gate, but I don't assume that they were share Holy Blast or the Light Element.
Title: Re: Poll of The Week
Post by: bugfartboy on February 10, 2011, 02:38:31 PM
In all honesty, "Holy Gate" seems like something he would have if he were multiple affinitied. Unless Craig has his own original ideas for Cygnus if he were a boss.

Post by: SmartyPants on February 11, 2011, 07:28:59 AM
I don't think the Light, Cold, Shadow, or Heal will or will not be Cygnus's elements.  I don't see any evidence to form an opinion either way.  I voted Heat, because the new Fire Gate protrait was posted on the wiki during the same time Cygnus's portrait was posted. (That may end up being a coincidence.)  I do doubt that Cygnus will have physical attacks, since both Iblis and D'Kah are bosses that already used mostly physical attacks.  I do doubt that Cygnus will have Holy Gate, because I don't see Craig trying to make Cygnus the mirror image of the Shadowling Queen.

It isn't funny, maybe to some people it is, but not to me, because I get attached to just about anything I spend a decent amount of time with, such as my cello, characters in most RPGs (sometimes I feel I don't care if they die, but it kills me inside when/if they do... especially if by my hand), and my friends (obviously). :/ Even though they're just games, RPGs generally bring out the best in me, so, most of the time, in RPGs I do the things that don't harm anyone, or, at least, harm the least amount of people the action can.
