Opinion about Children

Postby Victin on Fri Dec 28, 2012 8:08 pm

No, I'm not asking you about that, I'm simply asking you what did you think when you saw that. Was it expected? Did you think about it too before I had said it?

I'm just gonna go facepalm some more, just like when I came home to find what you guys did....
Normal people are the easiest to manipulate. Too smart and they have an annoying tendency to catch wind of your plans, too dumb and, in the words of a certain pirate, "You can never tell when they are about to do something incredibly...stupid."

That was me, as Mr. A, tweeting reflexive anti-Cabal things before I thought through the consequences. We later realized that going into detail about this would raise real-world political issues that we really, really did not want involved in the game, so we nuked it.

My bad.

I...am honestly not sure what you mean. Do you mean that the playerbase skewed young?

EDIT: OH. THAT. Yeah, real world politics isn't even allowed on the forum, so we tried to keep it out of the game.

I definitely never, ever mentioned real world politics (what politics? I didn't notice any politics) ever. I wouldn't do that!

Excellent, thank you.

With your new picture, you look like a scheming jealous angry half brother to a mouse logical mastermind.

Which suits your personality pretty well actually.

I honestly still don't get this. What do anti-Cabal tweets, real life politics and the age of Players in the game have to do with eachother O.o
(Seriously you guys are making even less sense than usual x3)

To explain to Rota.
The anti-cabal tweets were a just-for-fun nudge. Fleshing out Mr. A and such... But when we deviated into the implications of having children as characters... Well, there are laws about it and very serious moral implications.
Say Rocks Fall, Everybody Dies, for one aspect of the discussion. Ok, it's implied that kids die as well, but we don't have child characters. So the implication means little, but when we began to explore that concept... Well, we were bound to hit the legal wall soon enough and discuss the implications of having child characters. And according to Rule 6, that is not allowed, so the talk was cut short.

No one is talking about the age of players.

I'm totally fine if you never realize the implications we avoided when we stepped on that arc.
