    I’ve finished my workload for the day, so it’s just watching the rain come down outside the window. It’s pleasant, but it makes me want to lay under my desk and nap.

    Pretty damn good. Shot a good bit of trouble and was able to help strategy wise on a few things other people in other teams were running up against. I didn’t solve the issue outright but got everyone a little closer. That was nice!

    I've had a pretty great day! Except it's cold. But I made a mocha and that makes things better. How was your day?

    Fall? There are only three seasons. Hot, rainy, and Christmas.

    I am the Architect. I created the matrix. I've been waiting for you. You have many questions, and although the process has altered your consciousness, you remain irrevocably human. Ergo, some of my answers you will understand, and some of them you will not. Concordantly, while your first question may be the most pertinent, you may or may not realize it is also irrelevant.

    My son is on fall break from college. My daughter (The oldest) still lives here in town and comes by often, but I was fortunate enough for them both to be here. I fed them, they couldn't pass it up. LOL

    You made a statement of fact. I asked you what the data is that backs this up. You ask me in turn to speculate on how you arrived at this point. That misses the point of my question. I don't want to speculate and presume. I want you to actually tell me and substantiate your claim
    If it's because you've seen it "countless times before", and knowing your profile is only a month old and you are presumably new to Valucre, it tells me that you're collating your experiences across time and mediums and not just what's on Valucre, whereas I'm approaching it from Valucre. You're talking about a motley crew of communities with varying structures and I'm only talking about one. We have conflicting sets of data and I have little-to-nothing to say about how other sites and other communities run their game. If you're dissatisfied with them you should be talking to them about it
    I see you've edited your statement in the post to now to include some level of speculation. That is a much more appropriate way to have worded your statement to begin with. If you make statements of fact, I will almost certainly ask you about the data that led you there
    The assumption at the end you've made there is also missing the mark. While true that a character dying doesn't mean they have to stop playing the game, people have different perspectives on how they handle character death. As a player I may think resurrection is cheap and so not want to engage in it for a character that dies and so be more restrictive around character death than another player that goes "death doesn't mean anything I resurrect my characters monthly" (supplementary to what Die expertly had to say on the subject)
    "I'd hope Valcure was built to cater to roleplayers, irrespective of what they roles they played; be they killers, achievers, explorers or otherwise."
    Valucre btw
    And you can hope that but I already told you that the case is it caters to two types the most, a third type intermediately, and killers last. Killers can kill on the site but it does not cater to them in the sense that it does not prioritize their style of play over the others; other styles of play are prioritized instead, and this is done by conscious design.
    I think this is an amusing excerpt from the Killer type and why I don't care about market capture for that taxonomy type, "multi-player appeal to the killer":
    The first type isn't much of a problem because they don't mind engaging people on equitable terms, such as in a tournament or an open challenge (kind of like a pvp zone in a game that is not pvp everywhere). The second type though:
    Games prefer certain types of players and inasmuch as there is a preferred player type for the kind of game that you want to run, there should be a way to prioritize the kind of play you want and de-prioritize the kind of player you don't want - or at the very least, not add overhead to system maintenance. For me that means people can run tournaments, but I won't take on the overhead of running them myself, as an example 
    Also:
    On sites with free-for-all mentalities there are no bored killers, but there are also fewer of the other three types. Here, bored killers who vent their boredom by being disruptive are tamped down or figure out how to not be bored (by engaging with other killers, for example, vs trying to shoehorn the other three types into their version of what makes a fun game)
    You seem to use PvP and Conflict interchangeably, and though you've admitted that conflict is not limited to PvP/combat, this seems to be the kind of conflict you reference the most. Character death, orcs swinging axes, and characters being pushed off swings seem to be the ready examples. Of the types of conflict, combat is often the simplest form, and the manner in which the killer taxonomy type structure their combat conflict tends to be both simplistic (as in linear, not "dumb" but it can be that too) and self-centered. You might still be able to pull of a reasonable level of engagement with this (Dredge has, for example) but that is why its incumbent on your ability to generate buy-in rather than the site endorsing your ability to disrupt on a whim
