A (decentral) RPG environment where NPC's are created by anyone, by assigning adjectives and traits from a dictionary.

The description of any given NPC would be open-ended, but still bound to a form that a computer can use to build descriptions of that NPC in a scene.
Movable bodily features such as arms, legs, tails, tentacles, etc. would be loosely defined by the game creator, so actions can be fitted to them, and then players could build their OCs as NPCs.

Remember the astronaut from a few days back?
This is the player character without space suit.
I hope this image can represent a male and female char both, since I am lazy and don't want to redraw it.
I added a script that changes the player's sprite to wearing a space suit, if all items (helmwt, suit, gloves and boots) are equipped, if not the sprite will look like this. Later, I'll also make sure that the player can not explore all areas without a space suit.

The Clangers is such a cute tv series, always seen them as marsupials, hence the middle left drawing :3 #mastoart mastodon.art/media/qEpG0BsbXbZ

Update on Komiket (the con we're going to table) me and my friend are collaborating on a comic to sell there! Cover art is by her btw :tialove:

It's an action/adventure story set underground about a girl trying to save her sister, but she must fight the aswangs, foul creatures that roam the dark, before she could reach her.

It's a story that borrows a lot from Philippine mythology and some inspiration from pre-colonial times!

So, we're going to be advertising for some new volunteer staff soon, because @JubalBarca is currently doing about 6 people's jobs which is not ideal for a PhD student with chronic sleep problems.

Anyone have ideas on where best to look for ? Areas are likely to be social media, content editing, community development, forum moderation, and voting members' officer. Internet, time, & some grasp of English needed, age/location irrelevant, we're happy to teach skills. Boosts appreciated!

This is an other quite old monster sprite made with the #ohrrpgce game engine. It is a hero sprite set, it has animations used for player characters during battel.

General request: if you post pictures, please please include alt text describing the image so that everyone, regardless of visual ability, can enjoy your toot.

Please consider asking others to do this. Optionally, reconsider boosting toots if they don't have alt text.

We all have an opportunity to help shape the culture of this place and I'd love, love, love if it were "oh, everyone posts alt text with their images because that's just what you do."
