    Enough with the third eye, people, it hurts! don't abuse a good thing. use it when there's no other option of there is generally a belief that it can reveal something when nothing else can.
    That said, I opt for Tom to nudge the figure. If it responds to external stimuli other than voice, try to comfort it.

    Despite the obvious troll, I'll bite:
    What happened today logically fit in with a lot of what happened before, and this was in fact one of the stronger theories being passed around. Stitches's death had been hinted at as Ruby's fault already, Filbert was an established presence... I'm trying to figure out what's so Shyamalan-ish about any of this.
    None of this is completely unfounded nor tastelessly absurd. So though there was dawning realization, it's hardly a WHAT A TWEEST moment. And if the idea of a universal cure with monstrously bad side effects has been done before, I haven't read that particular story.

    >Enjoying a cliche and it not being a giant cliche are two definitely different things
    We've known Ruby was infected since like the third session, assumed it since the hound zombie slashed her in session 2, and suspected it from the moment Stitches showed up in session 1.
    This "you're infected" thing isn't exactly new.

    Or are you just trying to say that being infected in a setting that focuses on infection is cliché?
    Wouldn't it be MORE cliché if she was the only one who was somehow immune?

    I believe it's time for the story to end.

    It began as a good idea and a different experience from what /tg/ was having at the moment, but it's starting to get stale. The interaction part of this threads is getting lost by both the constant spamming and the railroading (as interesting or needed as it be).

    Weaver gave us an interesting concept and a very good time, but it's time for it to end before it becomes a bag of crap.

We've known that all patients are abominations. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the cure probably has something to do with the mutating. It's not our fault if you are a bit slow.

    I'm not sure where Weaver's taking this, to be honest. It seems like a cross between the Resident Evil films and Silent Hill.

    I will also admit that it's getting a little worse and worse each time. Like all things, /tg/ will eventually roll its eye at Rubyquest and would prefer to pretend it never existed while newfags will check the archives and try to be the new Weaver by trying to imitate his story-telling style - only to fail miserable and stop on the first thread.

    Listen, people, there's NO POINT trying to persuade the troll to stop. The more you argue, the more you express disapproval, the more of a buzz it gets. Trolls "believe" whatever is useful for them to believe at any given moment. They all have fast-talk skill maxed out. It'll always be able to come up with a "reason" for what it's saying. Language, reasoning, negotiation Just Doesn't Work on these fuckers. For them, language isn't a tool for communication, it's a tool for manipulation. Every word spoken to a troll is a word wasted. Worse, every word spoken to a troll is a source of information for it to improve its technique. Better to speak to a houseplant.

    I'm pretty sure things are coming to a head now anyway. At most I see maybe four or five more sessions of this before the end.

    If we cover as much ground as we did today, I'd say closer to two. I mean, we know where the exit is, we've met the emo bird Weaver mentioned in the poem, all that's left is finding out what the Turtle is about, who's ordering Ace and some sort of confrontation with Subject 6 (who is locked in lab B, where we are just now.)

    Just finished reading the all the archives and so on. Weaver, congrats on having created something this good.

    Regarding the complaining and trolling of these threads and so on (man, this is gonna be a major oldfag moment): There's a precedent for this sort of thing, and to be honest it's not too good. Bloom Writer's work is the main example- a funny, clever and moving story that slowly turned into something else entirely in the consciousness of /tg/ as newcomers tried to figure out what it was and only got answers from sagefags backlashing against the large audience that enjoyed it. Most of this backlash centered on some imaginary egotistical version of Bloom Writer who had created the whole LCB concept (People had been begging for a full story to go with Miko's comics for weeks when he volunteered, and rather than being arrogant he was critical of his work to a fault).

    I think we'll be seeing something similar here- but to a less severe degree, and only after the game's conclusion. Several reasons for this:

    -LCB had a greater draw for sagefags because at the time there was already one or two spamming in every thread because they didn't like that type of game/specific game, 40k being about the biggest target.
    -The fanbase for Ruby Quest has generally proven more even-tempered and troll-savvy. In the olden days sagefags were more frustrating because sensible people just didn't know what to make of them.
    -Weaver speaks more frequently, which keeps a damper on rampant speculation. (This one might not have any notable benefit, since it also means more chances for people to assume that Weaver's actions are motivated by deranged drama-queen thought processes.)
    >> Dagda !hTbo821v7U 01/17/09(Sat)09:57 No.3431708
    In the end this is all tangential and superficial. Ruby Quest is and will remain an extraordinary piece of original content, the sort of thing /tg/ had in large supply back before a large base of memes had been developed and people became less ambitious and more worried about the potential for backlash. Weaver, thanks again for this breath of fresh air.

    I agree, story's almost over, and while I don't think it's been a steady downhill descent in terms of quality (I'd say session 6 was weak, 5 was the best one so far, and this one was good overall), it does fluctuate, and one can't deny that something like this is impossible to keep up forever.
    So hopefully it'll end soon, before it just inevitably peters out I'd say two more sessions sounds like a good sweet spot for it.

    I dunno, the only real negative reaction I saw to any of the reveals disappeared when the threads went past the front page, just like all the trolling did.
    It's kind of telling, I think.

    Anyway, none of the reveals were particularly improbable or terrible, and considering a lot of the theories until now involved clones, time travel, or aliens, I'd say Weaver pulled that off pretty damn well.

    The very nature of the adventure makes railroading impossible to prove or disprove. Only one thing ever happens, how can we prove it wasn't what was planned to happen all along? Of course, people have been screaming "THIS IS ALL PRE-DRAWN NOTHING WE SAY MATTERS" since the early ages of drawhores back on /b/.

    Most evidence is logic-based or anecdotal, rather than hard proof. Personally I'm convinced beyond all doubt this is done on the fly for a number of reasons:
    1. If it's all pre-drawn, why space it out over SIX TO TEN HOURS, AT MIDNIGHT? He could post much, much faster and have to waste less time, and apologists could still just argue he draws fast.
    2. Frames that have small changes are posted faster, frames with big changes take longer. Remembering how long each took to draw and then planning an appropriate pause for each one strikes me as more effort than it's worth.
    3. I've actually had one of my suggestions used, and I was the only one to suggest it. This could be argued as "I'm the only one who got it 'right'", but then again it's an issue of causality: only one thing happened, and it matched a comment. Did the comment cause the action, or was the action merely waiting for the comment?

    It's impossible, by definition, to come up with concrete evidence here, short of Weaver opening some sort of live stream so we can watch him draw while the thread's going.

    TROLLING is a traditional game, too, when you think about it.

    Also, as predicted, people complaining cliché/railroad/not-traditional-games almost all disappeared at once, indicating samefaggotry off the charts or ANONYMOUS REALLY IS LEGION XD

    You mean adventure VIDEO gaming. As much as I love Sam and Max, I won't pretend they're a traditional game, nor will I pretend this, or CAD's vote the next panel thing are /tg/ content.

    It's a collaborative, collective RPG in which a group leads a single character. Just because it doesn't have dice rolls for ST and so on doesn't mean it's suddenly something foreign and terrible.

    And anyway, why complain about this? Right now there are a couple dozen threads on /tg/ whose only connection to traditional gaming is that their pornography features elves. Saying RQ isn't /tg/-related would hold more water if it weren't for the shitfloods of even worse threads that successfully run for hours on end without a single sage.

    There are much worse things on /tg/ right now, and much less fitting things. Why single this out?

    I agree. There's a huge difference between disliking something (or even just finding fault with it) and trolling it. Though generally if you engage in the latter, you also fit the former.

    I've never got people who stick around in threads they hate. You hide it and move on. If you think it doesn't fit, you report it and then hide it and then move on. Unless you're a masochist.

    So they do it... because people enjoy it.

    One side believes Ruby Quest is a collaborative RPG that focuses on cinematic behavior and foregoes dice-rolling.
    The other side holds Ruby Quest is little more than a comic in which people vote on the next panel.

    Both answers are right, and both answers are /tg/ related, although the second is a stretch.

    My favorite part was when someone was like "Talk to stitches" and she goes "okay, SHOVE"

    and everyone's like WHAT THE FUCK

    I thought it was a rather clever way to comment on all the claims of RAILROOOOAAAAAAAD while still being acceptable within the diegesis. made a point without fucking up the narrative.

    bonus points: someone actually DID suggest "shove stitches over the edge", but I bet if he'd quoted that they'd only assume he was posting suggestions for himself

    Conclusion? When we really are railroaded, it's a good way to see that it's either a flashback of mind control.

    Yeah, I'm glad that the one time we're completely and irrevocably veered off of what we actually want to do, it doesn't actually fuck us over.

    Ruby'd be able to use her THIRD EYE more frequently if we could just find the EYEDROPS.

    'And the birds all cried'

    So this crying bird/shade figure is the last of the characters actually mentioned in the poem, right?

    Ruby should elevate her KUNDALINI from her AJNA to her SAHASRARA and thereby achieve union with GOD.

    Or perhaps that would be a bad thing in this setting?
