Forum Games / Re: King of the hill

And thus, in a true Zackirus fashion, I, as SteelFist is busy dealing with the tortoise, sneak up and collect a single sample of one of the "Hill Particles" and retreat to my home in Canada, happily drinking and offering my maple syrup once I return.
Hmm... I was reading the manual and discovered that TT has a fog of war aspect. I am wondering whether or not it is planned to have a Obfuscation-using (the practice of preventing enemy psys from locating or reading ones' thoughts telepathically) unit/class who has high perception, allowing the player to scout out the field for incoming enemies. Inversely, having a unit (or perhaps the same unit) that blocks enemies perception (mental perception at least) allowing for sneak attacks against the enemy.

The Nameless One does this in TSoG, so I wonder if it can be applied to the batteflied

I'm also back from being a camp councilor. Sorry I didn't tell anyone.
Have you ever thought of making a Telepath RPG game set in the timeline where the main character from TRPG2 sided with the Shadowlings?

Duckling is banned for not being able to ban bugfartboy.

What are you're thoughts (as a game devoloper) on a company that is going to change their ending, or, at least explain it, after they have finished it.

Back by (not) popular demand. Poll of the Week:

What Are Spirits?
Why did you remove the prison battle scenes and make training available before the ghost cellar, if I might ask?

That's a logical fallacy, a False Dilemma, to be exact. You do not know that The Spirit Within and The Spirits of The Dead are the only theories.

I quote things too, and you have yet to address my point

Since Chocobo_Fan and Steelfist can't present any evidence to support that spirits are dead or to contest that The Spirit Within is correct, it is safe to assume that The Spirit Within is factual.

That's a logical fallacy, a False Dilemma, to be exact. You do not know that The Spirit Within and The Spirits of The Dead are the only theories.

im2smart4u, other than the single solitary book that mentions the theory, no other evidence is suggested in the entire game nor can Duvalier talk to any spirit to support the book's theory.

Another loophole: if Soul Charges are the 'spirits' of the undead, and spirits are a person's psy energy/power, then how can Duvalier, as Luca is just duvalier, revive people? Does their psy energy act as a mock-defibrillation? Furthermore, how can he revive non-Psy characters such as Qudssi, when he has no energy to speak of?

Finally, I am personally for the Psy-Energy theory, as it is the more pratical one, yet their is not enough evidence to say one side over another is correct. And, if I may speak on the Dead People's behalf, I think that they find it werid that for all of TSoG you are led to believe that spirits are dead people, yet in this one book it says otherwise. It seems werid that Craig would add that little snippet in at the end.
How exactally does killing D'kah in Mission 5 benefit you in the final mission? Also: what happens if you never defeat D'kah in the first part, what happens to him then? Finally, why does the Hero kill Cygnus in the end, or better yet, have to choice to kill him?

I was kidding with the Rajav comment, and actually, you take the 'energy' from your joyful thoughts and convert them into Fire; makes perfect sense.

Your assuming too much, their is no direct proof (if the book theory if correct) that Luca is part of Duvalier's subconscious. For all you know it could be mix of everyone's sub-concsious that Duvalier has a power to control.

Again, as with the ending of TSoG, it leaves it open. Meaning that, either theory works and can be applied to TSoG, similar to the fact that you only find out in the end that Yawheh may or may not exist. TSoG has the ability to let you view a situation and understand it using both perspectives. Admit it, both theories have holes in them; meaning that, it can up to the player to decide what to believe in, in what makes sense to them.

Yet, when you talk to her in the Headquaters, she says that she will leave this world once her promised is fulfilled. So, if she has choice over what she does, who technically controls Luca? Herself or Duvalier's sub-concsious?

My question isn't asking what happens when you die; the question is asking, if Psy Energy isn't dead, and it leaves it's form, where is it going? Energy cannot be created or destoryed mind you.

While it is true that Spirits have fuzzy details pertaining to their past, how do you explain Rajav's incredible recollection of his past events.

Craig even mentions in a twitter post that, Rajav is an excellent Spearman and Lover; too bad he's dead.

I don't believe that the answer to the question is either Dead People or Psy Energy. I think that, like many things within society/universe, it is a expanse of gray; the truth being a mish-mash of both ideas. Can't we  ALL compromise?

As I said before, I am for neither side; and continuing, you have not answered my first paragraph's questions. It is a fact that Luca leaves the earthly realm when the game is over. Your theory cannot explain this, and, until it does, it is not fact, but merely a theory; which is backed up by your own word: 'concluded'. Meaning that, they , the 'scholars' of the book, researched and studied spirits, and, with those observations made a conclusion, which can be subjected to bias even by itself. Furthermore, these scholar's conlusions are based upon their outside observations, where as, Luca/Rajav's conclusions are based upon actually experiencing such 'observations'. That is similar to saying person a knows more about person b than person b themselves knows.

To your point of the book is written by scholars. Where did you obtain that kind of information? How do you know that Al'al or the Beggar didn't write that book? Just because it's written down in a book doesn't mean it's the truth, I mean, their are plently of other books that claim more preposterous things, yet, people believe they are true.
