Reply: Sex/Philo Talk
I’ll just update this post when more replies come in recent to older.

It’s ok… She passed years ago..2010-ish. I miss Her, but She did alot for me at a real bad time of my life and taught me so much as well. I dont want to imagine where i’d be now if i never met Mistress…
pinxiedust said: I gained new respect for the BDSM lifestyle when I read that their creed is “Safe, sane, and consensual”. That should be everyone’s motto. I am only frightened by things that are not safe, not sane, and not consensual. Moreso not consensual…
It is Mith. There’s alot of trust behind the scenes in any BDSM relationship…the sub/slave has to trust their Master/Mistress to make sure they are not hurt or otherwise during play; while the Master/Mistress needs to trust their sub/slave to let them know if things are too much/too far and to obey (not just because that’s how it is, but also because its for ensuring all is playing safe),
There -are- some who don’t follow this basic rule…but they are easy to figure out as they won’t take the time to know you and take things slow and one at a time.
A BDSM relationship is, oddly enough, just like a “normal” one at it’s core. Trust, knowing each other, having similar likes/dislikes and even love (especially in my case) are part of it…the biggest difference is the “worship and obey” part is taken literally. XD
The Sex and Philosophy Talk (can and will lead to NSFW)
So first, obligatory warning—-
The following post is heavy on sexy talk/stuff and leads into some philosophic stuff. I’d say leave if you can’t handle this sort of thing…but in all honesty, you likely wont listen and this kind of info could help you in regards to living a better life or think differently about things you dont understand yet.
So second, link: http://www.kyrieru.com/
I found this courtesy of Gaijin Goomba (a really great person, check his videos on Culture in Gaming, you’re guaranteed to learn something and expand your views, Link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCBEC827914127AA3 ) and i tried out the demos for both the games the dev made.
First off, both games are challenging but they are fun once you master their combat systems. Second, both games are sexually graphic…this is something that’s unavoidable in these games (except Erotia which has a switch to turn it off.) Third, the soundtracks are nothing short of AMAZING.
Both games sexual themes come in when you either get stunned or defeated in-game. The monsters/enemies in both games clearly have an insatiable sexual appetite for both game’s main characters (one female, the other male). Why? I don’t know…the demos dont appear to give any backstory as to -why- these monsters want to get into the main character’s pants after thoroughly beating the crap out of them. My best guess is for Kurovadis, demons or aliens or science accidents have been unleashed and it follows the usual motive for those things in a hentai movie. Erotia on the other hand, i can only guess it’s the same reasoning as the “Monster Girl” games..only you don’t want to be pounced by a in-heat nekomata or slime girl. Oddly enough, getting molested by the enemies doesn’t equate a game over or HP damage…with the exception of Kurovadis’ giant green phallus monster that DOES do damage while sexing the main character then immediately eats them for a instakill if you didn’t already die from the huge damage or break free from the tenticles….i dont want to know what the hell is going on in that thing after being swallowed. (Kurovadis has a heck of a “horror” vibe going with it due to it’s music and sound…it almost creeps me out)
So now that i’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get to…whatever word i could describe in what i wanted to talk about…oh..i guess that’d be good enough huh? :s
So you may remember a little while back i mused about wanting to make a BDSM themed game…though i couldn’t really think of how best to implement that theme outside a select couple of ideas. Now that i think on it, that may of been that (irritating) need to not be totally open when it comes to things of sexual nature. Let’s face it, our society (for the most part) tells us anything sex related is bad, yet at the same time parades it around like it was just a guideline and also simultaneously (and this is pretty much fucking fact) sex is needed for the human race (and just about ANYTHING ELSE in the world) to reproduce. That’s just how we’re all designed.„it’s the Rules of Nature.
*insert clip of Raiden cutting down Metal Gear Ray*
Looking at this from a logical standpoint…this is one hell of a contradiction.
As it stands by this, sex is part of the natural flow of things and thus part of life. It’s how most species on this planet continue to live on after 1000’s, even millions of years. Humans, being the higher thinking creatures we are, try to improve our lives and sex..well…regular sex is “boring”…and we don’t like being bored. We like fun and entertainment. It makes us feel good, gives us a form of purpose. Sex feels good and as humans, we’ve found multiple ways to “spice it up” as it were. Not everyone likes the same kind of sex…much like how not everyone likes gumdrops and pepperoni on their pizza.
In the 30 years i’ve “Lived”, I got lucky enough to see and figure out things alot differently from most people from meeting one Woman who showed me alot about myself and where i started learning a certain truth to things in life. That was my Mistress..and I loved Her -alot-…and it kills me still when She passed away…but She changed my life in a big way in that year of knowing Her.
The thing is, bluntly, i don’t mind sexually related things. Yeah, there are some sex topics i’m not comfy with, but i don’t press those who like them…as long as they don’t force it on me or get unreasonable with it. Example: Furries. I don’t really get the attraction myself…but i understand (as the saying goes) different strokes for different folks. Though i’m sure they probably wouldn’t understand my attraction to latex/rubber, bondage, both genders or (most likely) hypnosis.
Though the core aspect of those things, be it a furry or being me, is the same: Because it makes us feel good and we like it.
The only reason this stuff is “taboo” or “forbidden” or “bad” is because people don’t understand things…and at worst they don’t want to. They are quick to condemn and judge what they don’t know instead of understanding and/or co-existing in peace…this has been repeated infinitely during the course of human history and still does to this day.
One thing i learned from Mistress, that She believed in was: “Love binds a slave stronger than fear..” and She was right. When you love someone, you forge a chain of trust and devotion…you want to do anything to make that person happy because it makes you, in turn, happy as well. Just to see them smile, compliment you, love you, be with you. It was like that for me with Her. That’s how love works…be it Mistress and slave or man and wife or wife and wife or man and man or whatever you are.
Alternatively, when someone fears something, they don’t trust it. They want that something to go away or be destroyed. It scares them and they’ll do anything to make it go away or lessen it’s effect. That’s how fear works.
Human’s fear what they don’t know or understand. That’s why someone, likely now, who has read or stopped reading this part way will consider me a pervert, a deviant, a sinner, a whatever-name-they-can-think-of-here and probably will hurl insults and curses at me. Why? Because they don’t understand…they understand what others have told them in regards to this topic…that it’s a sin. It’s wrong. It’s bad…as opposed to investigating for themselves.
Though..at this point, i dont care what they think. Everything i’ve done and experienced..these “bad things” we shouldn’t embrace or talk about…has led me to where i am now as a person; where i don’t care about your race or gender, that i experienced complete and true love for someone, that i want to see a world where everyone can get along and stop fighting over petty differences like this.
If that makes me bad, a sinner, a deviant, a pervert, evil…so be it.
Soul Gem Art: Sketchy of Alden
I felt the need to draw…so i tried to sketch out some art of Alden since i can’t in all good conscience just use the default RPGMaker artwork i used for him. I see several flaws as it is right now…but that’s why it’s a sketchy. Some tweaking and a little polish and it’d look better/different…maybe. My main gripe is the armor..i just suck at armor. -_-; I also didnt bother with doing the sword and left just the base line for it..
Maybe i should study some Fire Emblem art…it was crossing my mind as i was doing this.
CAN’T BE STOPPED
That is until the hype train arrives at it’s destination or the train crashes into a spectacular chaotic whirlwind of pain, tears, fire and screaming…sometimes death; because the hype built by the train was too much and collided with the impossible to avoid Wall of Reality.
Though occasionally it does end up at the Hype Station safely and delivers all of it’s hype…then proceeds to crash through the wall of the station…because you can’t stop the hype train.
Life Advice: “How to disprove everything you ‘stand for’”
I’ve seen this a lot of times on the intarwebs…and not just with the whole feminism stuff; but there’s these times x-person expresses dislike/hate about something and someone either:
A: doesn’t get it and asks.
B: doesn’t have the same stance
C: points out a flaw in that person’s position/logic
D: all the above.
And the immediate response from the angry person is: “Fuck You”.
Now, I’m pretty sure that if you want people to see your side of things and, hopefully, agree with you..you’d try to -explain- to that person what/why you have that stance or why you’re angry. Telling the other person “Fuck You” not only is rude, but you’ve just proven you can’t carry a conversation or handle dissenting views/etc and that you’re an unlikeable person.
The funny thing is, in most of the instances of this scenario I’ve seen, the ‘angry’ person (for lack of better term) will devolve into a landslide of insults against the other person instead of trying to prove them wrong (in differing opinions) or explain things (to clueless people).
The non-majority of these ‘angry’ people are just that..angry and on edge…though few have gone back and appologized to the other people for their ass-ness.
So moral of the story:
If you can’t respond nicely, say nothing at all…then chill the fuck out and try again.
Strict penalties for racism, homophobia strengthen attempts at player “reform.”
Fun fact: racist, homophobic, misogynist tears are the sweetest of all.
The scary part on this is I hear people are getting pissy about the crackdown on this. People are getting pissed off…that they can’t say incredibly insensitive shit…in a game.
Do I even need to say “think about that…”?
Shit like this almost makes me want to agree with Faux News about how gamers are evil. :/
…So yeah, a bunch of really talented people came together to work on a game in June, and then there’s the inept loser known as me who fumbled around to somehow produce something mildly playable. Well, there’s the fruits of our efforts. Give it a shot!
A mischievous mercenary from wintry Garenia and her long-suffering sister set aside their differences to compete in a tournament of arms. But when an old friend appears in the company of mysterious relic hunters, the past and its problems can no longer be denied. Sacred Earth: Promise is a one-hour vignette set within a fantasy world of floating continents and ancient ruins, with a dynamic battle system and a compelling cast of characters.
· Three playable characters with their own animated sprites, battle voices, and special attacks.
· Utilize multiple-hit Chain attacks to build up your EX Gauge and expend it to unleash powerful Burst attacks or heal and attack in a single turn with EX Recover.
· Constantly regenerate EP for spectacular fast-paced combat. Choose whether to inflict more damage with Abilities or build more EX with Chains, and cast support spells without spending a turn. But be careful not to Chain past 0 EP or you’ll take damage yourself!
· An original Symbol Map system for dungeon navigation. Manage your Travel Points to evade traps and avoid battles, and enjoy party interactions in the field.
· An engaging conversation system with moving portraits that displays conversations between up to four characters at once.
· A personally-designed quick-reference status screen, world map menu, and title screen.
· A complete short story and dialogue, with a large cast of lively side characters and numerous optional conversations between events.
· Try to solve the mystery hinted at after the credits to learn a main character’s most important secret!
Sprites and Interface: MirageV, Ocean’s Dream
Character Art: Eeriah, Zue
BG: Archeia, JIHAUS, molybdenumgp03
…More Credits in game.
Currrently enjoying this. :D
Only problems is there seems to be random lag during chains (seems to be 60% chance) but it has yet to actually prevent me chaining attacks and i’ve come across an unique situation where i could not chain (no EP), could not ability (no EP) and couldnt focus (on Cooldown). Luckily i did have EX to use an EXceed.
I suggest (if you want) to have another option to skip or cause it to skip a member’s turn if these conditions are met…otherwise someone can get stuck and need to force kill the game without saving. :(
