It's a repeat, but there's no sense in building up a new legend to glorify them.  Might as well chalk it up to Pathos and move on.

I played both Recettear (Yeah, cute little anime girl having a shop. And a grown man is playing it. SUE ME FLORENCE, CAPITALISM HO) and Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves again today.

And every damn time I'm sad because we probably wont see any sequels or even similiar games in the future. I want to play as a Shopkeeper, dammit! And I'm really starved for something like Sang-Froid. The Trapping was sooooo good!


On a more personal matter, spoilered since I dont want to pull anyone down:

There's nothing more manly than a little girl going into dangerous dungeons so she can loot them, make it out alive, and sell the swag for massive profit.

Well that was weird... Anybody wanna tell me what happened there?

@Saint discussion: IIRC Tiru even studies theology, but yeah, elevating people to sainthood while still alive is not a good idea - even though I'd like to nitpick here and remind Vec that saints usually refused to be crucified the ordinary way, and most were killed by entirely different means. But I guess 'reducing the flame over which the saint is roasted' or something similar does not have the same ring to it...

@Stuebi: It's like that for me as well - it's a perfectly natural reaction, if a bit unusual.

If he's still around, I don't think St. Christopher would take kindly to being called the 'God of travelers' :P

(I guess you meant 'Patron', right?)

ILY.

All these young kids idolizing grisha5. I respect the great old one.

-Bwargh-
I don't have a problem with it. Nobody came up with inferiority complexes when we suddenly registered Aqizzar as an impromptu member of nobility.
We literally called him the single eminent member of authority in the lower forums.

... that being said there was those people who complained whenever he changed his avatar or acted silly, I'll admit.
But for the most part, everyone found it funny, nobody minded. Nobody meant any harm when the St Tiruin thing came around, nobody is making grand expectations of her, or sweeping the other helpful and positive people on the forums under a rug, but I personally don't want Tiruin to die before announcing that her efforts on this board are appreciated.

Spoiler -Snop-
We who are emotionally unavailable salute you.

On that note... I'm sorry Objective. I knew he was a bad idea for the forums, and saying hurtful things just to cause a reaction, but at the same time I felt like I had to defend his right to say unpopular things... It was really cruel of me. (Yes, this IS gonna be deleted really quickly)

Are you referring to the bit about a certain shopkeeper girl, or to the spoilered text? I have a definite opinion about the former ("Being ashamed of playing Recettear is not okay."), but the latter is a much more complex (and somewhat related) issue.

And she's definitely not the only super-super-positive person here, like Reverie and Caroline.
I don't know what to react to this.
I'm not that positive!

* Caroline is an electron.



In all seriousness though, Vec is right. There's many great people here, and everyone is allowed to have their strengths and faults. We shouldn't idolize or demonize people- we should just treat them like people.

Or, ya know, we can just accept that it's cool to do girly stuff. Girly is awesome!
^Yep!

Erm...
Well, I'd like to write a lenghty response to your post, Vector, not least of all because I think anything less would be a sign of disrespect, but I can't think of much to say.

First of all, allow me to say that I can certainly see where you're coming from. If Tiruins support worked for everyone, psychologists would have started using it on everyone and there would presumably be a lot less people with psychological problems.
Part of being a human is that we're all different, and that definitely applies to what does and doesn't help, be it medication or emotional support. So yes, I can see where you're coming from with this.
I suppose part of the reason I saintify Tiruin is that I haven't really interacted with the other neverending fountains of positivity and help that Bay12 has.
The only one I can think off the top of my head is Caroline...
I've barely talked Reverie, and I've only ever seen Pufferfish around.
And, well...
I honestly don't know how to respond to the truly emotional part, at least, regarding you being tortured. I haven't experienced anything like it, and saying something like 'hugs', especially from someone like me, seems to be, well, cheapening it.
So yeah.
tl;dr: I see where you're coming from, and agree with you on some points, and have no idea how to respond to others.
On a side note: I apologise if a lot of this comes across as me being stupid or not understanding your position. Still 14 here, so I have a lot to learn about life.
