@Majoras End Am I correct in assuming that Amanda is going through the portal with the rest of Maura's girls?

@Majoras End

That's kinda why I was curious about what Amanda was doing, lol.

MDP would definitely go if Amanda went, but if she stayed at the beach, MDP would probably stay too.

Connie would be afraid, but would still want to help (especially if Amanda and MDP were going), although both Gaia and MDP would probably be able to talk her into staying at the beach.

Plat's already told me that Mayra is staying at the beach as well, if that makes any difference.

There's been some interest in the Lord of Change's game, so I'll put some deets here so that they don't get buried in memes and everyone has a chance to see them.

-The Lord of Change is giving everyone a chance to enjoy the Christmas party with a long departed friend, be they separated by distance or death.

-Everyone received a text message from one such friend of theirs. If I did not write one for you, you can assume they got one anyway. If they never knew any of my departed characters, they got one from someone else. If they don't have a cell phone, they do now. Causality warping horrors and their antics

-The friend that they wish to join the party does not have to be the one that sent them a text message, nor does it have to be one of my characters. But I'm only going to play my own characters at the party.

-The game itself has yet to be explained, but there is a roller cage present.

-The exact number of friends that will join the party will depend on the number of participants and how varied the requests are.

-The Lord of Change can be further questioned to learn more.

If you’re interested in playing the Lord of Change’s game, here’s the OOC rules.

PARTICIPATION:

-Each character can vote on a single magical entity they would like to attend the party. That includes magical girls, patrons, monsters, etc. It does not matter if they are dead or alive, though ideally it would make sense for your character to vote for them.

-Posting who your character voted for IC isn’t mandatory. In fact, I discourage it! (though you can still do it if you’d like to. uwu)

-Best way to ensure your character’s vote is counted is to send me a DM on discord. I just need to know the character(s) that voted and who they voted for.

-NPCs and PCs can vote, so long as they are at the event.

-On the 26th (or sooner if everyone miraculously votes) Voting ends and we see who joins the party.

PICKING WINNERS:

-The votes will be divided into batches, which will be turned into “loot tables”, with a number assigned to each one.

-Each loot table will be rolled once via RPG dice roller to determine which character joins the party.

-The loot tables will be created in such a way as to allow the player characters a better chance at getting their dream friend into the RP. As an example, if Platinumskink enters all of his NPCs into this, they will be regulated to a single table as to not interfere with the chances of player characters.

-If it gets big enough, the player loot table may be rolled more than once. There may be more than one player loot table!

-Should a friend get drawn that doesn’t want to play their character, that table will be re-rolled without said friend on the list. If this happens more than two times on a single list, the loot list is discarded.

-The banner for this Gacha event is “BP’s characters.” So there is a 100% chance that you’ll pull at least one BP character from this event. How this will be achieved depends on how everyone votes.

If you have any questions, I'm on discord, like, every day.

Yesterday, on the Magical Girl Discord Server: Broken “Zucc” Promise collects the opinions of Magical girl players…



AND NOW THE RESULTS ARE IN!




I was kind of on the fence about deciding where to post these. Erode posted all of his surveys forum side, so I’ve decided to do just that.

So just to reiterate before I roll out these results, here’s what happened.

I ran a google form survey to collect the tasty data opinions of everyone. We got 9 responses out of 10-11 active roleplayers, so I feel this is an accurate sample size. I also collected e-mail addresses to dissuade people from logging fake surveys. I can show the E-mails, but would rather not do so on a semi-public area like an OOC forum post.

The results are as follows:



There’s a pretty even spread here, with roughly half of the votes landing on one side or the other of 3. But do remember that we had 2 long time members leave the RP this season, and I’m sure their votes would have fallen to the left side of the scale. These aren’t really good numbers to have. We’re almost 4 years in, and by now everyone should have reasonable expectations for the RP.

So why do people have this opinion of Darkest Before the Dawn?




I can’t say these results surprised me. The necromancers were mixed, but each encounter was treated a bit differently. Billy was taken on by a group of Players, Mr Bulk was a weird mix of GMNPCs and PC, and Endsinger was a cut scene with a fight against Lupa going on in the BG. Hard to get much from these results alone. The Beacon trial is a bit more polarizing, and I don’t really have much to say about it. The rave is easily the most hated event in the RP, while the park horror event didn’t score nearly as badly. It is hard to vote the park event because while it did have a cool fight scene, it wasn’t totally divorced from Cindy killing herself. Meanwhile, the Seige on Mariette’s mansion is among the most acclaimed GM events this season, with the sanctuary one being pretty meh/disliked overall. Time skips remain the most enjoyed part of the RP. I’m noticing a trend here, but let’s keep this in mind and continue.



I think the only thing that surprises me here is that more people didn’t hate the Ascendancy. They’re a boring, invincible, almighty army that no one can hope to beat in a fight. Though they are easy enough to avoid by just staying out of their way. They definitely don’t have a favorable score, but it’s still a lot higher than I expected.

Can’t say the same for the rest. Sanctuary is pretty polarizing for reasons I’ve already discussed. Justine was half baked and voted accordingly, and the widespread accessibility of purification potions is polarizing, but leaning towards unfavorable just like Sanctuary.

The new story beats might have been a bust, but at least the homebrew content scored well.




As a joyless internet gremlin, I do get an odd warming sensation in my cold dead heart when I see that both cradle and the red coin are well recieved by the RP as a whole. The white coin isn’t too far behind, and is clearly a better item than the potions. Perhaps the potions give players too much freedom in how they are purified? Suppose you could have a good discord discussion about that.

The modded red coin and Amaryllis’s sword patron I think were mostly unknown. I’m not even sure why I included them. Guess I was just checking awareness.

Now I bring to you my favorite part of the entire survey: where we talk about what we enjoy and don’t.




The data speaks for itself. There’s a clear outcry for more smaller scale fights as well as ones against monsters, and some time for non-magical and slice of life stuff would be cool too. It’s also clear that most players have had enough of the bloated spectacle fights and patron antics.

I also find some of the “other” options interesting. A call for less collabs and loose ends. I do wish I had done a collab check box for that one, as well as a rivalry one. Suppose there’s always next time.

And lastly, let’s see what everyone’s most interested in.



That one about the cradle broke my heart. Me too fam, me too </3

Now if I’m going to make an OOC update this long, why not make it even longer with some stuff that’s coming down the pipe?

TO THE NORTH




Someone who took the survey said that they wanted to see fewer loose ends. Well it’s your lucky day pal, To the north is just for you!

To the north is a bunch of hunts made by yours truly. Unlike normal hunts, these will see you venturing to the north of Penrose where all of my characters like to retreat to. In order to join one, the hunting party will need a specific character to be present to go on the hunt. This is because these hunts are a bit more story driven in nature and require specific characters to work properly. If you want to know what became of Lupa or see how Regina is making out, you’ll need to take on these hunts.

Taking on northern hunts can also unlock special events called “raids,” which is just as gnarly as they sound. Depending on how negotiations go with the GMs, these will either occur during events or will be special multi-party hunts where several hunting parties have to work together, but also split up to bring down a powerful threat. Think about events like the graveyard or the necromancers, only with parties of two.

And we’ve also got something else.

GOLDEN TROVE EXPANSION




Some of you have already seen it, and the GM’s seem to be on board with the idea. I just wanna make things a bit more ready before letting you guys see it again. Someone else might wanna add more stuff to it, so that's cool. Once everyone’s had a second look, I’ll probably pass around another survey like I did for S3 to collect feedback.

Well that was a good use of my weekend. Gunna lay down now.

"Quick warning! Any characters bearing similarities to other characters in different Realm of Patronses and/or obscure universes are purely coincidental! It ain't our fault if you feel like making a reference or two, our handler's just not that fuckin' creative. You've been warned! :D" - Oliver
