Why don’t you just buy it yourself so you can do it better?  ;D
That was their plan all along!

There is a point with many LPs that you just cease being able to watch. The tolerance people have for the skill check malus involved in recording and playing at the same time can be... finite. There comes a point you have to develop the ability to just go yeah-no-fuck-that-I'm-done or the pastime of watching LPs becomes more pain than pleasure. And not good pain. Bad pain. Put them out of your misery choke them on the eyeballs they're clearly not using pain. It's healthier at that point to just stop and go find something else to do. Maybe watch a speedrun or summat.

On the other hand, the Former Best Friends (Matt and Liam) run of Sonic '06 has gone alarmingly well for them.  Like the infamous ball puzzle took only 16 minutes or so.

Speaking of LPs, last night I was thinking it could be nice to start up Dank Fortress again sometime.
Probably not in the original forum I made for it, since I just had a look and it's been flooded with spambots... and besides, it's anyone's guess if I'd be able to recover my password for the admin account or not. I wasn't particularly clear-headed when I created the whole mess, after all.   

But maybe like... I (and the other players, assuming anyone else would be keen to participate in the hilarity this time) could steam it on Twitch or equivalent. Or even just YT. I've been thinking about having a go at streaming for some time, and Dank Fortress would probably be a bit more entertaining than just playing PuBG or something, I dunno.   
I would like to have a proper forum thread for it somewhere, though, for that classic Drunk Fortress-style incomprehensibility.

I thought LPs have all become meandering Twitch streams where most of the time is spent reading donation shoutouts?

I am pretty sure it's because youtube is utter crap for people who live off of content creation (with such shit as demonetization for "bad words" (and I ain't talking about swearing), content claims, punishing folks who post more than 2 videos a day, etc). So they all migrated to Twitch where reading donations is expected.

You know Youtube is trash when people will willingly use Twitch instead. I'd rather go outside.

Im actually a mid-level character on Outside.  I've got a STR and END grinding session later, and just got back from purchasing consumables and new accessory for my familiar that reduces the chance of diseases.  I'm going to visit my clan later and have a nice diner with them.  I bought caramel popcorn and intend to gift it to them.

Can't. That's an unforgivable act of nerdism.

We're all nerds here.

Does he, though? There's a lot of people here just for lower boards and Forum Games/Roleplaying. S'like saying the janitor at a fitness center is just another swolemate.

In other news, my digestion is ANGERY and my effluence is like wet newspaper. Beginning to think it's the honey oat bunch cereal, if not the soybeans from three days ago. Or black beans? Please don't be black beans.

I play adventure mode only and usually use it as a virtual punching bag for my anger issues. Does that count?

Broadly speaking:

Broadcasting turns is a good idea IMHO, but I guess it won't be easy get the players and timetables straightened up. And I could imagine some people not being too fond of doxxing their voice and accent  ;D. But it's more engaging and that can be a very good thing.

Personally I think that succession worlds are the natural evolution, as our means to interract with the outter world will only increase... And one could easily dedicate single fortresses to more traditional formats. And players or coalitions of players could have dedicated factions.


Concretly:

I got a pretty special world I poured hundreds of hours into, the project has been ground to a halt at 89% of chapter 2 (I'm too lazy to clean up items so the fort runs more smoothly in adventure, also some minor annoying details I haven't accomplished yet), chapter 3 should be fairly short. After that I'd be delighted to use the map for community games (I got a set of rules in mind, but as I grazed above, one could easily subsume a bunch of turns into a more specific theme/ set of rules) and if somebody streamed their turn I'd probably have that running on my second screen while I play something else.
