Unfortunately, no, it’s not in Ares. It’s in Evennia. I played Arx before I ever touched a single Ares game, so I looked into Evennia first and somehow didn’t turn the project into a smouldering heap of wreckage after a few months. Two years later, I’m almost done coding, haha. I never expected to have made it this far.
I’ve been on several games with Discord Integration. I’m a fan of it, because there are times when I little hit of that game-derived dopamine, but can’t log in to the actual game. But I also think that it’s very important to only have game channels on the Discord (except maybe an ‘Images’ channel or something like that) because otherwise it feels like more of a Discord game than a MUSH (even if all the RP takes place from the web portal). I want players to be able to have the full (or very nearly full, just without image spam) experience from the web portal/client.
Yeah, if the Discord is limited to the game channels, then Discord just becomes a supplementary client with which to engage with the game. That would be my ideal, because then you don’t run the risk of there being game-focused public chatter and development happening that completely excludes those who don’t want to Discord.
Considering the discussion of receipts in the other thread, I’ve thought about adding to this. There aren’t going to be any receipts about the actual, literal crimes that are the reason this thread exists, because of-fucking-course not, and I’d take the dimmest possible view (to put it politely) of anyone who insisted on them. Not that I have any reason to think anyone on this board would do so, nor do I really think people on MSB would either (at least I’d hope not), but just in case for some unfathomable reason people don’t consider that enough of a reason to avoid this player like the bubonic plague, I do indeed have mountains of receipts as regards what an incredibly toxic player he is.
Mountains. I’m happy to provide what I can, but frankly, I’ve got one particular exchange that might do well to sum most of it up. On GarouMUSH he got into massive trouble because after years of wanting his character to ICly know a secret he knew OOCly and trying to weasel and/or browbeat his way into having people tell him, after leaning really hard on an OOC friend to have their character tell his character (and being refused, as that character had made a promise that he wouldn’t), one day he decided his character just found out this secret that could get another character killed (that this character had kept for real life decades), confronted this character in a scene about it, and then after the fact pressured his friend into just agreeing that their character had told his character anyway, and, when they still turned him down, decided she used magic (which doesn’t work this way), to go into their friend’s character’s head and retrieve the information without their IC consent, and without consulting staff.
I think it’s perfectly fine to share these screenshots, because he gave them to me to prove he was innocent of this shit. This is the best light he could put it in. Real life names removed:
This is not an isolated example of his non-go-straight-to-fucking-jail-offenses, just the one he provided for his own defense.
But also he’s a child predator, so none of that should matter at all.
