So I looked. I liked.
But I started drawing blanks after I read them and the descriptions on the ones that were there.

You're asking for contributions, right? Of the witty genre.
How do you want them presented? Here on the forum? E-mail? In the Enquirer spot?
Just curious in case I or someone else I may bug enough to help think of any, know how to bring them in.

It's okay to post in this thread, right? I'm just early? And not embarrassingly posting where I shouldn't?

I'm a bit confused... The example format makes it sound like these would be +1 to X (made-up) skill, but the list of attributes sounds more like a type of person. Wouldn't you want to have, say, "+1 Acrobatics," rather than "+1 Acrobat?"

I'm confused as to how this would all work. How would you give someone something like this?

I thought it was going to be given via Mementos.
I could be wrong.

As I understand it, when you create mementos, you'll be able to add stats to it, so that the receiver then gets there object and a + to the relevant stat. Then their progress in the various stats will be an indicator of how they're perceived by other players. Sort of like stats for roleplaying rather than for game playing. But like I say, that's just my understanding, so probably completely wrong.

So once they've been gifted, will they be able to be gifted on again?

I do like the idea, but don't have any ideas to add off the top of my head.

Instead of being productive and actually adding any, I've found myself writing descriptions for the existing ones. Eh. I'll add some eventually.


Judging by the chaos, I've been here already.

That's productive! The existing ones need descriptions too. Smile

Oh, sorry,i left my Derailment Train unattended. 'Verb can has like this idea. And (S)He's sorry about them feetnotes. Really.(1)

No, really. I know this game is SRZ BSNZ.



-1 I just realised i spent more time on the layout of that horrible train joke than on the editing of that list. This cannot be a good thing.

You all realize, of course, that there are at least forty'leven people trying to edit the Attributes page at the same time. Where's the time-sharing signup?


Thank you.

Tons of people trying to add in at once (everyone who had an idea ever), and a few that keep returning before anyone else can get in (I'm looking at you, shark. I see you circling that wiki page.).

Strikes me as a bit inefficient a way to put the list together, but it does have its merits.. I just can't precisely put my finger on what they are at the moment. Maybe the ability to add descriptions to the (few) descriptionless ones left.

Huh. So when I want a totally different description, I just add it in a duplicate name. What if I want to add just a little change?

Edit: On an unrelated note. I have been unable to post in the forums for a good few weeks. It just says I'm not logged in. But it works now, I don't know why.

... and X Y Z.

every letter of the English alphabet has an entry now.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to add to the single entry letters (besides X, Y, Z, includes J, U, and V).

I'm especially pleased with the X entry; don't bother trying to google it, instead go to a dictionary site or if not highly motivated, click here.

Now that it's out.
Is there a cut-off to additions.
Because I had always wanted to add Natty Chatty.
For those out there who practically live and breathe the natterspace when others just use it occasionally.
