Hey. So I was just thinking about different things and wondered, would it be fun to do a lets play Achaea? You know like a recorded video series that is then posted to youtube..Sounded kind of interesting to me would others watch and such if I were to do one?

    There is already a "You're addicted to Achaea when" series parts 1-6. At least I think it stopped at 6.

    I was actually considering this the other day.

    If nothing else, it'll be good to see if people swear as much as I do when I'm fighting...

    I think it's a great idea in theory. In practice... where do I start..?

    "So, this is the screen where you have to write in your character's name. You can't really see it so clear from there, but I'm just gonna type 'Richard'. You do it just like this..."

    "And here's how to look at the room you're in. You can't really see it so clear from there, but I'm just gonna type 'L'."

    "Okay, and here's how to switch targets during a raid. You can't really see it so clear from there, but I'm just gonna type 'TT CARMAIN', no, not in caps."

    Only if normal Let's Plays consist of someone just describing the graphics of a game.

    No, but 'normal Let's Plays' consist of showing somebody how to play a game. How do you show somebody how to play a text game? Seriously, this would be the biggest turn-off imaginable, and the -worst- possible way of advertising Achaea.

    In a normal LP, you can process what's going on (the visuals) and the narration (the audio) at the same time, because visuals are intuitive. We're visual creatures. Text, on the other hand, is not intuitive; you have to interpret it. When trying to read over narration, it's a significant hurdle just understanding what's going on.

    All of this can be hedged in something that isn't time-sensitive, but Achaea's far too fast-paced.

    TL;DR: Bad idea. Confusing, hard to follow, and probably boring.

    Challenge accepted. Give me until approximately the 15th of November to get somewhere with a webcam, keeping in mind I'm probably going to forget and not do anything.

    @Tvistor - Literally cringing in anticipation... but I'll certainly watch it from my fingers.

    My webcam is glued to the top of my laptop but I can still do it i think. It will just require a little imaginategemite.

    NOT your sweet, dulcet tones I'm worried about.  Bonus points if you use a voice-changer to make it so that the LP is presented by Michael Jackson, though.

    For a reasonable credit bribe, I'd record a dramatic reading of a duel.
    20 cr to read as William Shattner. 35 cr for an overexcited scotsman. And for 60 cr I'll sing the duel as Adam Lambert.

    Choose wisely. (Or pay all of them and I'll try to fuse the characters together.)

    EDIT: Might not do serpent duels. There are only so many ways you can read 'Carmain eats a bloodroot leaf.'

    @Xith

    Only if you narrate that three hour Tirc/somebody duel.  And never break character.

    Or whatever their names are.  I honestly cannot remember.

    Tirac and Kalvon. They are important people (as importance in Achaea goes), you should learn their names.

    I -have- learned their names.  It's more that I couldn't remember who was involved in -that- particular duel.

    I'd pay to hear it done BRIAN BLESSED.  How much for that?

    Krenim: Hounds? How cliche.
