No... :(
I edited it a little and that was actually a lot of fun so if I make more I may try that.

Not sure if anyone has that skill (someone used it), but I found the icon and had to make something.

While I would be happy to make one, I'm afraid I don't know much about anyone here so anything I make would probably lack in humor.

Would Noob or Fail be a forum skill? That'd be kinda funny.

I dunno. Noob is more a social tribe and Fail is more a broad state of existence.

I made and MLP skill because I thought it might be appreciated. In anticipation of the power struggle I then made 6 more.

So I guess this is the MLP skill tree then.

I might do something similar for Minecraft.

Man, it's been bothering me every time I look at them. I used horrible pixel art for the ponies. Trixie is the exception and I got her from a different source. If anyone has ideas for better captions I'm willing to remake them.

With the help of AloPunk and maru-shadow, I got some new captions for the MLP skills that I'm pretty happy with. Now, I said I would find new pixel art but I couldn't find any that I liked more and the ones I'm using now don't bother me as much.
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
I like this set, it's very strategic. You can make devastating combos like Fluttershy + the G&PT. Failing the G&PT can be saved and turned around by Fluttershy. Also, the more time your post is read the more influence it has, so Pinkies Pie + Twilight Sparkle can be an effective tool for gaining domain for MLP.

Pretty cool. I also made some other ones that I'll post now:
Image: Made the keyboard myself but I don't think it turned out too good. Anyway, this one is a necessity so I had to make it.
Image: Made for welcome threads, original artwork.
Image: AloPunk, in future I think I'll restrict member skills to summoning skills (ie summon Soth or summon AloPunk).

I'm also working on something much better that I'll have up by the end of the night.

Re: Imosa's Art - Animated Lily, Forum Game

Postby Imosa » Mon Aug 01, 2011 8:04 pm

The other thing I have been working on is, this little animated gif of Lily.
Image
The sprites came from a myrmidon from Fire Emblem but have quite a bit of editing to them. I had to cut some frames because myrmidon are graceful swordsman, who twirl a lot, and I didn't really get that impression from Lily (although I havn't read much of the comic). In any case I don't think the animation is too choppy.

Fun note, originally I thought I could use a berserker:
Image
but then the glaring problem of no shirt and massive amounts of muscle made me wonder why I ever thought this was a good idea.

With all this work on forum skills and animating Lily, I found myself thinking and before I could catch myself I had begun thinking of the game that would encompass all these things.
The game is played in a "forum", represented by a large grid with any number of starting players. The goal of the game is to become a "famous poster", a louse title usually based on your negative or positive rep. The game is (probably) played in turns during which you use your various forum skills to deal "natural events" on the forum (i.e. a troll, a particular argument, both of which can involve other players). At this point the game gathers elements of a turn based tactics fighting game.
As the game progresses you gather rep, and post count, which let you further your skills. Now the major element of the game is threads. Threads are represented as areas on the grid, reflecting how a popular thread or subject will dominate a forum. Once a thread has been started you can spend turns posting in the thread, and if your posts are good the thread will grow and start to dominate the forum.
This where the competitive angle of the game arises. Your trying to become a famous poster, and so is everyone else, but fame is relative meaning that even if you have a lot of fame, if everyone else has just as much your not really standing out.
So lets say two people start the game and player 1 tries to peruse his fame through political commentary and player 2 tries to pursue his fame through MLP fandom. Things go well, everyone deals with the forum's problems. However, it becomes apparent that player 2 has made MLP fandom more popular then player 1 has made political commentary. At this point, MLP fandom begins to dominate the forum and cut into threads devoted to political commentary. Player 1 is lousing fame because the political commentary community doesn't want to talk in a setting overrun by ponies. Player 1 may try to pursue fame in MLP fandom but has spent the whole game bolstering his skills in political commentary, and may even have bad rep within the MLP community after arguing a pro-flight limit agenda in Gilda vs. Pinkie Pie. At this point player 2 has achieved the goal of the game, he is a dominating influence on the forum with his main competitor gone. Now, suggest player 2 wasn't going to make player 1 leave (via some form of cyber bullying). Player 1 can feel free to try and gain fame in MLP fandom or even try to carve out another popular topic on the forum, but this will take time and all the players may choose to just call the game right there. There are no official win conditions but everyone know that player 2 won and he did it by destroying player 1. There in lies the subtlety of the game.
Of course the game doesn't have to played like this. You could also assume the roll of a professional troll and even systematically destroying the forum by inviting all manner of foul creatures. It's a different route with different challenges but in the end you still fame as a horrible person and thereby can still win.

Well, that's may mind dump on this game I've been thinking of. Kudos if you actually read this far.

I think you did well on the keyboard and little field person. :]
And I like the sound of members being summon skills.
Ex. 'AloPunk' could be: Summons the aid of a glitter-crazed lass

Also, Great job on the Lily gif! I read all of the Forum Game post~ Sounds a bit confusing at first, but at the same time it's really interesting. I like it. :D

That forum game could very well be awesome enough to be a comic here, but I doubt it.

Other than that, what icon would go well with my skill? I'm trying to think of one...

negative rep should also make you famous, as infamy still makes sure that people will remember you. I suppose there should be a difference though with being someone who keeps doing the same things over and over and someone who finds inventive ways to flame the other side
