"Rumors from faraway lands will not save us..."
« on: March 15, 2011, 12:04:25 am »

I just had this said to me, and it was fantastic. I love when people think of the most realistic things to happen in video games or movies. One of my favorites of all time is in Way of the Gun when Ryan Phillipe jumps into an empty fountain, only to realize it was a dumping ground for old bottles of liquor.

Anyone have their own tale? Video games or movies?

This seems so strange that I thought it isn't adventure mode, but this is adventure mode discussion, so I must be wrong. Silly me.

It's what people in other countries say to your hero if he/she isn't known across the world yet.

It happened to me while playing adventure mode. I went to brag about my deeds, and some dude just totally shot me down. I thought it was funny because it makes so much sense. I'm assuming you're telling me in a nonchalant way that this should be in another thread?

And speaking of this, i often get that message in a buggy manner. I complete a quest, brag my ass off and take a new quest. Hey presto, completely identical quest! I just have to re-report the death of X, after which the questgiver says just that. It is of moderate annoyance, since my killing rate could be higher if it didn't happen.

I just had that happen about 5 minutes ago. It's not nearly as annoying as elf villages and every one of them being abandoned. Especially when I am moving at about half speed from a lack of merchants to sell my loot to.

Definitely gives the grimdark/dark fantasy tone of the game anyways.

One of my most memorable Dwarf Fortress moments is the first time I got the message "Urist McDwarf cancels operate pump: Too exhausted."

I suddenly realized that these dwarves are all real people, not just the mindless peons you find in any strategy game. They get tired from hard work, they worry about their future, they have their own hopes and dreams. It all fell into place when I saw that message.

I was going to do one of those fix'd jokes but I couldn't think of a good one.  Something like hopes and dreams, blah destroy them blah.
Crush there souls or whatnot.  Actually kinda disappointed in myself.

That's the point, it wouldn't be as fun to crush their souls if they didn't have souls to begin with.

Except that the sims are somewhat shorter and bearded now, and the pools are warmer.

What this message means is that someone else (another adv. mode character) killed the creature you were quested to kill, and you tried to report it's death.
