Hey Fellas,

concerning the latest update:

 

"Additionally for our $500 backers and above, we will let you put your name and a personalized message on a memorial stone in game. Your unique message will be encoded into Glanfathan runes, and can be decoded using a unique in-game ring. It's a way for all of us to remember your large contribution to Project Eternity."

 

I wondered a few things that I would like to discuss here.

(If you are below 500$ backer, just assume you had donated 500$ or above)

 

1) Would you enter your real name or a nickname? And Why?

1a) Does the issue of data protection influence this decision?

2) What message would you enter? A general saying, idiom, or something very personal?

 

I'm torn on the subject of the real name (out of data protection reasons), that is why I want to see what you guys think about this.

But feel free to discuss anything else here related to the memorial stone as well.

I'd use a common alias of mine, like "The Hanged Man". As far as messages go, I'd probably put something Dadaist out there, just to make people go "wtf?" Data protection does not bother me so much, as it is that I am just a very private person.

 

Something like "If I knew red was green, I'd have chosen orange!"

I'd place my forum name, I guess data protection is part of it but my real name means nothing to those that actually play and like the game whereas my forum name would likely be recognized by forumites. Yeah, nobody I know IRL plays or appreciates CRPGs.....sad, I know.

 

As for the message....I don't know but if I could afford the $500 tier(which unfortunately I can't) I'd give it a lot of thought.....likely a mixture between something very personal and fantasy.

If I would back $500 to get a memorial stone I would like to know more about some of the lore of the game before writing something.

 

Either that or ask the Developers to take my message into consideration with the lore of P:E. Per say, my memorial stone would be early game, it could hint for something that is to come in some sort of cryptic manner (but also included with my private message). Perhaps even a message which mocks one of the in-game characters (NPC's, not your own). Or even "This man was slain by [insert powerful P:E enemy/opponent here]" type of thing.

I would enter the telephone number of my favourite pizza place, y'know to try and help them get a bit more custom.

I would probably put my real name, but I don't see anything wrong if one uses his or her nickname.

1) Would you enter your real name or a nickname? And Why?

I would not use my real or nickname, I would dedicate it to my brother and use his chosen online name of Ildánach, he died a few years ago and he was a bigger fan of infinity engine games than even I am. He would have absolutely loved this project.

 

1a) Does the issue of data protection influence this decision?

No.

 

2) What message would you enter? A general saying, idiom, or something very personal?

Personal, I would refer to the Eternity idea of souls. "Awaken soon to the endless cycle"

 

 

That all said, I will unfortunately not be handing over $500, it is too rich for me. :(

I think I'll write a note to my grandfather, who has always enjoyed this kind of game. Although putting it on a "memorial stone" is a bit macabre, considering that he's still kicking.

Here lies Eric.

He shot the gazebo with an arrow.

It woke up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S.: I wouldn't put my real name or even nickname since I do keep such things separate from "real life," but I'd consider putting in a name I used across games including MMOs due to "history." I just can't think of anything else relevant for this, though, because I don't have a clear idea anyway--too many possible quotes and such.

The KS Collector's Edition does not include the Collector's Book.

Which game hook brought you to Project Eternity and interests you the most?

PE will not have co-op/multiplayer, console, or tablet support (sources): [0] [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

Write your own romance mods because there won't be any in PE.

I would go with my username and maybe do a prayer to the Marshmallow god to protect the Wimp Paladins from the dreaded feargusasaurus. Of course if the message was limited to something like 30 characters of less that plan wouldn't really work.

LC - still working on convincing the Hubby..........current indications favourable! I won't up my pledge any further until the last day regardless though because I know no matter what I've done I'll get caught up in the excitement and want to add more anyway.

I'd use my forum name and probably try for something humorous - or a little snarky -

 

Here lies Les Moore,

No Les

No Moore

 

Unlikely to reach $500 level tho unless I recieve an amazing windfall within the next few days -

 

( I plan to add my pledge on my birthday as a present to myself later this week and I am still debating what level it will be so if any of you would like to help me get to that $500 level I'm just a PM away :yes: )

Wow I did not know about Eric and the Gazebo.

"'It's too late. You've awakened the Gazebo; it catches you and eats you.'"

 

This made me laugh. However I think from this day on I will view gazebos through different eyes :s

New Question: Since it is a personal message, will it be allowed to write it to write in your mother tongue?

I don't have 500 dollar either.

I do hope OE would include it out of the goodness of their heart, since it's such a poetic thing to do for a lost hard fan. I certainly hope it gets in, since it's so beautiful a memorial.

We can always hope (or try making OE aware, not sure how though).

 

As for myself. I probably use my forum name, and hope people would recognise it by now (would be dissapointed if not).

Btw, I noticed the same problem arises with the "special thanks in the credits".

 

Putting real name there?

Or forumname?

Or a combination like "first name" "forumname" "last name" ?

 

Of course I could put the name of my superior there as well, "His Most Fluffyness, Lord Kerfluffleupogus, Devourer of the Faithful"

 

So unsure of what to do... xD
