Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on December 5, 2015 by Drogo

Cooperative Communal Winning!!!

Goal: Win by working together to build and maintain a thriving eco-village. Make the village within 12 years (turns), and keep it for another 12. Survive 24 years of life-changing events and start a legacy of stewardship for the Earth!

Sunshire Game Board

Start: Pick a color building to start with. Blue Long-house; Red Brick-house, Black Herb-House. Blue has 1 savings & 3 income, Red has 3 savings & 2 income, Black has 3 savings & 1 income to start with.

Play: The game is played by keeping a ‘character record sheet’, rolling 2 (6-sided) die each turn, reading the results on the ‘result table’ aloud, and following what it says. Mark each turn on the ‘character record sheet’ to keep track of how many turns have been taken. The result roll will determine your actions each turn. IMPORTANT: At any time any player can give any other player savings from their account, or make any transaction that is mutually agreed upon; this allows cooperation by those with excess savings to alleviate the suffering of others. Trade, Gifts, or Building Dwellings can take place once per turn.

Character Record Sheet: Must be maintained each turn.

Player name & Start color:

Turns taken (game ends in 24):

Savings (start color #):

Income-bill Ratio (start color #):

Dwellings (as you place them):

Income-bill Ratio = Net Profit added each turn to your savings (gross-bills)

Savings = monetary or resource amount you have in storage reserves

mark a turn after each roll, and add your income/bill ratio rate to your savings each turn.

SCOD Therapy Roleplaying Characters

Posted in Individuals / Members / Monsters / Creative Writing, Psychology with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2012 by Drogo

Here are a set role-playing personalities for self-help Therapy. Since most people cannot afford a therapist, now you can spend time with any of 7 SCOD characters for free!

 

2 people could “play therapy”, or just one person can imagine what the character would say to help them (after studying them), and make their own Therapist to fit their own needs at the time. If all else fails simply imagine what actual people would say, study them so you can recreate simulations in your mind. The difference between creative people and schizophrenics is that creative people choose to imagine things as though they are real, and can have useful control over their “intentional delusions”.

5 Rule Theory on Gaming

Drogo’s Gaming Theory

Five Rules for Roleplaying, Rollplaying, and related playing of strategy and character based games…


Playing games for fun is not a phase for me. I don’t only play the latest and coolest, most trendy games. Nor have I even been in a regular group of gamers in years. However I do consider myself a Master of several games, at least in one or two capacities. One of those games I played for years with other people was Dungeons & Dragons. After 10 years of playing I was a Master Dungeon Master, proficient at a few styles of control. It was during my apprenticeship to older Dungeon Masters that I acquired my philosophy of game play.

My favorite Dungeon Masters had similar traits, although they did not know each other. Their ways of controlling was compatible with their ways of playing. Their dominant traits tended to avoid or deny gain by intentional selfishness, rudeness, greed, or cruelty. If spite bias was ever used, it was for conflict resolution. Here I will attempt to list the guidelines of my theory for running games:

1. Prepare ahead of time, so that game play will run smoothly. Preparation can minimize lost time searching through notes or the rule book. Have a few conclusions in mind, and what the psychological results might be.

2. Roll alot of dice to maintain a continuous element of Neutrality, while guiding the story.

3. Guide the story with subtle bias in favor of the characters because you care about the individual people playing.

4. Foster morality and ethics by rewarding ‘goodness’ and punishing ‘badness’. This concept is relative to Character Alignment. Good characters will be guided or controlled by Good Deities, and Bad characters will be guided or controlled by Evil Deities. The result of this is that if the player acts ‘out-of-alignment’ and refuses to correct their behavior, the DM can step in and guide or control their character by using a ‘higher power’ (like a Deity) in the game.

For example if a player wants to play a ‘good’ character, but acts ‘bad’ then an Evil Deity can take control of their character. Whether the player gets control back, depends on whether or not the player modifies the alignment to fit their behavior, or changes their actions to fit the alignment better. If a player wants to play an evil character, and they are being awful to other players or the DM, the DM may retain control of their character through the Evil Deity indefinitely. This is one way to attempt to have good game play, rather than ban players or quit the game.

5. Help everyone to have fun!!!
