Other Games / Re: Pokemon! (I am totally serious)

The price tag  ::) Especially because the 3DS is due out sometime soon, and I don't know how much, if at all, the DSi will go down.

That's the same reason I havent upgraded either. Once I spent the money on the DS I figured I didnt need to spend it again for a few features I probably wouldnt use. I feel mostly the same way about the 3DS too, but I dont really use my DS for anything but Pokemon and a very small list of other games.

I was sorely tempted by HeartGold/SoulSilver, but I think probably quite wisely I kept the cash in my wallet that time.

I absolutely love HeartGold, but Gold was always my favorite game so it was nice reliving the memories with all the new features tossed in. If you're going right for Black/White then I'd say skip HG/SS, but if you are just looking for another Pokemon game to play and you dont want to jump back a generation I'd say it well worth the money.

One of my least favorite memories of Pearl was surfing my way up to victory road! I've always had little tolerance for surfing pathways in most of the games since I can only see so many Tentacool and Tentacruel before I get bored, but Pearl took the gold there.

By the way, which generation did you prefer?

I had a lot of fun with FireRed when I played it and would love a chance to play it again actually. I didnt have a DS when I played it though so I dont personally own it.

Pearl was fun the first time I played it, though I thought it was kind of lacking in some aspects, but my second playthrough was neglected when I picked up HeartGold.

I'm guessing because religions like the Blood Cult and the Chaos Requiem actually add to the game experience, and this would be their death warrant.

Good point!  ;D

Though it would be interesting as an optional feature. Though I have no clue if its possible to implement something like that.

What is the official reason why we would want to avoid public disclosure of religious preference?

Yup! I've got my DS sitting next to my computer with HeartGold in the top port and Ruby in the bottom port. Of course, Ruby is frustrating me, but I still flip on HeartGold from time to time to fill up some more Pokedex entries. I've not picked up Black/White yet, but I plan to sometime in the future once finances are more in order.

I missed Celebi by misreading the Gamestop date and I've been kicking myself for it. I needed it to help finish up the Johto Pokedex.

Also, perhaps one of the most important factors of the success of the religion is who founds it, and who runs it. To take up a theme I used earlier, it doesn't matter how many reams of crap... err... theology... you write, if other characters don't like your character, your religion will be a failure. You need a popular, well-liked character. And he needs to be able to attract other popular, well-liked characters. I think this is something that a lot of people forget.

All of what you wrote makes sense (and is great advice by the way), though this one in particular struck me. My character who led the church was not always a particularly popular character since I played him that way on purpose, and I bet that could have had a negative impact on growth.

@Ender: Which religion did you found/lead?

The Trinity of the Far East. I founded it as a splinter of the Trinity from the Colonies, but honestly spent most of my time in the Far East taking the core concept of the Trinity and trying to develop it into something different.

One of the main problems I found when trying to run a religion is just the general lack of interest from other players. Whether that is a failing all my own in not creating a compelling enough religion or just what is seems, a general lack of interest in the religion option, I dont know. Since so much of it is based off roleplay I think I just found it difficult to rally too many players around it.

While I always tried to find a way to fit religion into every aspect of BM life (trying to define why things happened based on the beliefs of the faith), as it were, it becomes difficult to fully develop anything without the interaction of others. And I know other religions do not necessarily have that problem, but at the same time some of the most successful religions I've seen don't really seem to be religions. I forget who it was, but whoever mentioned SA is probably a good example of that, I think. From my brief time in the SA it seemed to be a purely political machine wrapped in a think layer of "We do this because of faith."

Which made for a very interesting group to follow, dont get me wrong, but not a very interesting religion.

I love Mount & Blade though I've had it uninstalled for a while. I used to enjoy playing the tournaments for massive gold income since I could usually guarantee a profit off self made betting.

I've not had a reason to use it yet but I love the fact that we have it in there! I know I'll get quite a bit of use out of it at some point and would have loved it at certain times in the past.

I'd say Ender is certainly Chaotic Evil at this point. Cid, according to the wikipedia descriptions of alignments, was probably Chaotic Neutral most of the time due to his willingness to do what he believed was right against previously established laws or rules.

Weland for the most part was probably Lawful Good and I'd say I usually play Corin as Neutral Good. Edmund is probably Lawful Good right now, though I dont think I've played him long enough to really get a feel for what I want out of him. His wife, Letta, is certainly Lawful Good.

Based only off my own experiences I favor Atamara. It's where I started and have the most fun.

Though the other places I've been certainly have their perks.
