Greetings Guest, the 2021 RPF Awards Ceremony is starting! Be sure to-tune in
Discussion in 'Role Playing Resource' started by Shadowsun, Aug 30, 2020.
Mmm... we love set ups for unintended consequences
@Shadowsun got us in the DMs doing dastardly deeds.
(Of course, he’s the ultimate decider so I’m getting some serious @Sinrebirth vibes here )
Well... a thing happened
Curious how we all think or feel about the update.
As usual, beautiful artwork. And, though I knew not how, I was 99% certain the heroes weren't winning this, lol. As before, the tale is crafted both beautifully and intelligently. It greatly mitigates the bitter taste of defeat.
Esenma watching her long time friend and oldest friend be murdered while also losing Othos….
She’s in for a very sad beginning to the next game
... totally confused... and totally not feeling like a 'hero'....
LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY
The Final Post is pending for tomorrow. Though if you are unable to get a post up (which me suffering through midterms I quite understand, glares at adult people) please message me so, I would quite like it for everyone to get up what they wish to. Tagging those that have yet to post (apologies if you were planning on posting tonight and this became a needless prod)
Also @Ktala if your confusion is stifling the creative flow feel free to PM me with those poised questions you always have.
Thanks again, people - May the Dragon rest.
EDIT: Whoops sorry Ktala for some reason I missed your post
I stay in a state of confusion...
Tis all good......
Yeah minor note you had in your post for what you had as Zalzabar's 'final words' was actually Malum speaking. Zalzabar's last words were "I'm sorry".
Might have read your post wrong, but just wanted to make sure we are on the same page
ahh... okay. Might have gotten that wrong.
I'll chalk it up to her being far away..... lol
You never really noticed the similar speech patterns until you mistook the one for the other
I positively loved this line, from Rebecca's final post:
How did they snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
A beautiful union between question and statement, topped by delicious irony.
Well, it happened. We finished a game.
Genuinely from the outset I was never sure if we would get to this point. There were many times for a variety of different reasons along the way that I wanted to hang up the towel and move on from this game, but it was all your shining and creative work that pulled me along to get us to where we are now.
In the spoiler tag below I have the complete table of contents for the game. It is something I take great pride as an encapsulation of the total sum work we have undertaken together and a good look down memory lane.

Now that all being said the story is far from over. But that depends on how you are all feeling and want to do.
If you wish to continue PM me such and if not than that too, it is honestly and completely fine if you do not wish to continue just I don't want to be in the awkward spot of writing a whole OP and only 2 of you wish to continue.
Anyways, thanks again! Hope you are all doing well.
The table of contents is AWESOMMEEEEEEE.
I’m 100% down to continue.
Thank you @Shadowsun, for providing us with this fantastic experience, and more so, for seeing us to the end- even through all the hindrances that tested our collective resolve. I count Saga of the Ryujin as a triumph and a shinning example to any and all who wish to run a successful game, no matter the genre. The level of commitment from you, the GM, and from us, the Players, was inspiring throughout. You challenged our imaginations and our RPing skills, made us think about our choices and taught us that not all results would meet our expectations- realistically so!
I know I will personally refer to this game as the 'high standard' for anyone curious to see a living and breathing example of a 'complete game', which includes a healthy reference thread. This is something not easily achieved, but certainly rewarding, worthy of every effort invested in its culmination.
So, to you, a heartfelt thank you- and THREE CHEERS!! For gifting us this gem.
Long Live the RPF!
*whistles into the void*
Apologies for the long absence. The new OP is up and you are all quite welcome to join and if not that's cool too! See you all around.
Kaynus has returned...
*Pokes with stick*
