Vaporwave games time.
48 and whatnot. Have fun, and make sure to tell me how cool I am.
my sides are in orbit
how is that related to Cartman
let me tell you about Rei
we need to talk about stupidity
ugh Twin Peaks ruins everything
there's some serious instagram going on with kink-shaming
>>1414576 (Sir Livingstone)
Truly? You have been looking for this place? That, I did not expect.
It seems this...dimension, as best to call it, draws people from different worlds and different times, placing them here to fight. I've been doing some research myself, but so far I've not yet discovered why, or how, it does this. I must say, I stumbled across this world by accident. My Tardis tends to take me where I need to be, instead of where I had wanted to be at that time. And for the better, it seems.
I must say, it's good to meet another man who finds the thrill of discovery irresistible!

>He chuckles loudly
Ah, good one. I should mind my words around you!
I meant to say, in which way do you seek to improve yourselves?
Wonderful! Has he come with you?
Don't sound too believable, but whatever. If ya need me, I'm gonna get some toons in before this next match.
In every way. We seek perfection.
Who is it you protect?
You have no reason to be embarrassed, it takes a strong soul to admit that. If you're not comfortable speaking of it with me, we won't need to discuss further.
The past is the past, there's nothing else you can do but continue living in the present. I enjoy your company, Livingston. I realise that I may have been a bit...hotheaded. You taught me a valuable lesson today, thank you.
I sense that their is a mortal on the verge of death away from here, I must go finish that. But when I return, I wish to speak with you more. Thank you for the tea.
>That's the wrong link Buddy.
>implying i care ethier
>Your bait is weaksauce heres a pity you
Yup, he always keeps close by, though he likes 'ta wander off.
>he raises his cup in response
Likewise, Doctor, likewise!
My own research on this Colosseum has mostly been related to the combatants, though I did happen upon a very interesting, if dense, young man earlier today. One, Yamato. He claims to have been sent here by walking through a door in Japan, though a basic questioning revealed some information which I suspect is highly relevant to our Colosseum.
Thank you for your forgiveness and humility, Lady Lala, I hope we meet again before our scheduled visit.
Looks good Souda.
I thought nobody noticed it... I regret it already.
Okay, so there's a lot of questions about how many events one should have in their game, but what about the density?
How many should there be for 1 player, and how many should there be for 4? That sort of thing. Is it better to have a bunch of 1 and 2 player events, and something like 10-15 3/4/5/6 player events (respectively), or to mix it up evenly?
>Rolls visible eye
And why should it?
Looks fine. I can't believe I have to put up with this district.
That was one of my most interesting conversations I ever had...that tells a lot.
Because, you clearly don't want me around, and I don't want to talk to some cagna.
So unless you're gonna be nicer, fanculo!
The amount of 2-player events you have doesn't influence the amount that appears. Have an equal number of all of them, except a little less 4-5-6 player events, and the simulator decides the rest.
Don't you dare slow me down, or I'm leaving you behind.
Boredom. And what are you doing here? Apart from bullying Bubbles and Morgan?
Fuck you and your pathetic family
Eh, I aint even in this'un, I should be sayin' the same 'ta you.
I'll take these magazines, these videos, and these claw-colate sticks!
Science is fun! Mad science can get a bit too much out of hand, though.
Interesting...isn't perfection impossible?
I protect those who need protection. There's always something going on with the Daleks, Cybermen or other hostile species.
A mind of his own, too! I'd love to meet him someday.
Walking through a door to get here? But according to my traveling logs, it's impossible to get here without something to cross dimensions!
Would you mind sharing this information? This could prove most useful to my little investigation...speaking of which, how did you come by this...Colosseum?
Now, if I listen to the earth...
>He sprints off into the distance, excited.
One small step for myself, one, eh, bound ahead for us all!
Drat, that really could use some polish
heh heh heh...
well, ya did it. you killed me. and what did you get out of it?
nothing. absolutely nothing. wanna know why? i didn't bother to get anythin'. cause i knew one of these days, i was gonna die right away.
burn in hell.
btw sorry for no commentary. I'm doing this all with one hand.
I don't want anyone but Ragna around. And he's the only one who gets to boss Nu around. Maybe I should stick around just to annoy you.
>The amount of 2-player events you have doesn't influence the amount that appears.
Indirectly, it does, since event choosing is from the pool you provide the simulator. If you have more of X-player events, the likelihood that they'll appear increases.
... But I'm a cat.
I didn't add events in a while.
If there are 6 player events, and I forgot about them, that only means that I have almost never made one. And yes, I just checked, I only have one 6 player event in about 300.
So what are you boring nerds doing? Hey, wait a mi -!!!
Don't worry. Reality hurts and it's scary at the same time, so I will show you reality over and over again!
Whoops! I accidentally dropped 100s of flyers...
Nope, that's not how the simulator works.
It chooses the size of the events first, then fills it in with tributes and events.Try it out, have 1 1T event and 20 2T events, you'll have a game where about 40% of the events is that 1T event.
I'm not scared of death while I'm still alive...so I don't know why would this happen. I still want to live. I don't want to die.
>He turns the sticking-up part of her hair into a flower.
It is to those who do not strive to achieve it.
You protect those who can not protect themselves?
Noble, but futile. Strength must come from within, those who depend on others will one day stand alone.
And on that day, they will be snuffed out
You do not have a speech impediment. Why do you pause in the middle of your sentences?
It is the core of our being. We have no need for approval.
I realized pretty early... I had a tough childhood. It's why I became a Huntress!
This tastes very weird, I don't feel so good.
You are not comparing me to that blonde airhead, are you, Anon?!
>there's a crackle and a blue shimmer of light before it turns back, as she glares at you
I don't pray to anything! The gods were never there when i needed them in the past...
....And why would any bumbling idiot pray for death?!
This is why I work alone. I have work to do...and I'm so thirsty..
Not at all. The boy said there was a, oh what was it, servant room.... Ah there it is, server room, in the basement of a building he was renovating with his friends. He was the only one to enter it and examine the records within. He also noted that, let's see here, the room was still, "powered," though they had thought the fuel would have run out long before they encountered it.
After his one visit to the room, the records and equipment within were removed suddenly. He said the only information on the server were mathematical algorithms which appeared to be producing themselves. He showed me a remarkably detailed photograph of some of the data, which I transcribed. I've yet to have a moment to review it, and advanced mathematics wasn't my field of study in University.
So this drink will complete the ritual, allowing access to the ruins, yes? Well then, bottoms up!
Are you.. Do you have a Stand!?
Awwright, feelin' a LOT better now, i'm ready to roll.
Not that anon but i found this one on a [spoiler]furfag[/spoiler] website a few days ago so i expected you didnt have it
You think so? I don't know. I got used to it, so I don't even feel things like that!
That's just what I usually do in the bath.
Still, there's 6 times as many 3T events than 1T, yet they show up about half as much. Maybe it has a bias towards bigger size events, but it's definitely not just picking from the event list and then filling those in.
Ugh..Mi, Michuri or something. She's a sweet girl, but as silly as dancing bumblebees!
Oh, that's not the kind of protection I mean. You see, when someone hears a planet is under my protection, be it Cybermen, Daleks or other aliens, they will always think twice before attacking. They know me, and I know them. And if they don't, they usually get to know me.
self-sustaining algorithms? This is most intriguing, indeed...did he mention the kind of power the room used? Anything besides electricity?
>he gestures to the notebook
Could I see this data? Perhaps I can make sense of it. Mathematics has always been my favorite!
This seemed like a much better idea when we were NOT about to be crushed!
That's no fair, I didn't even have any fast forwards on me.
It's a good tactic, can't you see it works as intended?
the order is
If a 3-player event occurs, it uses up 3 players. If there are 2 players left, a 3 player event can't occur anymore and the RNG is forced to add 2 1P events in order to give everyone an event.
If there are 4 tributes left, a 5 player event can no longer occur, a 4 player event only once and a 3 player event also only once, while a 1 player event still has 4 chances to occur, giving it a way higher chance.
Uh...I have no idea what you are talking about. But what matters now is what you are today..i guess.
You will not be there to protect them forever.
What exactly were you doing on a furfag website, anon?
Besides electricity? Frankly, I'm glad I managed to extract that much information from the boy. He certainly seemed to take much of it for granted.
>he finishes scribbling some notes, then hands the journal over to the Doctor
Give it a go, but if the data is split up, I'm afraid I'll have to refer you to the boy himself, though he left an hour or two ago.
That's... not how chances work. When there's 4 tributes left, a 4T event has the same chance of appearing as a 3T, 2T or 1T.
But again, that's not how the simulator does it, it takes the number of alive tributes and divides it by a random number, using what's left to determine the first event size. Then it takes the number of alive and unassigned tribs and redoes it until no more tribs are left, that's why the last event on a slide often is a 1T event.
Because one: I don't know who Kuuko is and two: I DON'T KNOW WHERE SHE IS!
>He completely ignores her and turns his back.
i don't necessarily know why you were on a furfag website of all places, but, the pic''s very much appreciated, buddy.
Let's go rolling, Donny.
Go see a therapist. They will cure your mental illness
Okay. Let's get gay.
Of course not. But what we do with our time, that is what matters
Besides, we Time Lords are not like ordinary biological species. We have...an extended lifespan.
>He quickly skims the notes, making sense of some. But, as Sir Livingston told him, the Data is bits and pieces, unconnected. He hands the notes back to the explorer
Indeed, these pieces of data mean little on their own. I will keep a lookout for Yamato, then. Color me curious!
>he chuckles lightly
This has proven most helpful. Thank you, Sir Livingston.
Now, with my ill manners, I haven't told you much yet, except showed you a map of the galaxy. Tell me, do you have any questions for me?
Let's do it!
>That's... not how chances work. When there's 4 tributes left, a 4T event has the same chance of appearing as a 3T, 2T or 1T.
correct, but if a 1P event occurs, there are now 3 players left.
With 3 players the simulator will roll again, but this time the 4 player event can't occur anymore, because there are only 3 players. So it takes the 1 player event.
2 players left, 1P event with 100% chance.
1 player left, 1P event with 100% chance.
So with one 1P and one 4P event, there's a 50% chance the 4P event will occur and a 50% chance that 4 1P events occur.
if the latter happens, it will result in 4 times as many events as if the 4P event got chosen, while still having the same chance to happen. So there are way more 1P events than 4P events, even though they have the same chance of happening.
>good at pretending
Damn nigga you might be on to something
oh and the image shows that there are way more 3P events than others when using 1x 1P 1x 2P 6x 3P. I think that's proof enough that the size distribution in your event pool makes a difference.
Shut the hell up! You spend years in the desert without a home, fucking asshole.
What did you just call me?
>teleports behind you
Do you have a death wish? No one who has exposed my secrets left without a knife in their back.
That stupid kid who foiled my plans! the deal was SET and he went and fucked it all up, him and his stupid friends. If you know where he is, tell me right now. I have a new knife with his name on it.
Well, looks like it's us, sonny!
>before you can think he grabs your face and kisses you shortly, before turning back to his business
Looks like you're next!
>He walks up to Dio and gives him a small hug before letting him go and going back to his business
Ow! That's not nice!
We know. We feel the fire burning inside of you.
Still, your time will end. Only those that have reached beyond death will prevail.
What will become of those you seek to protect then?
Look, if you are planning to kill me, just skip the riddles and get to the action.
And it's Severa. And i have fought a death god once and still slice it's minions apart whenever i can.
Or do you think i keep this sword around for show?
I say goodbye for now, all you gentlefolk, but I shall return! Always remember, adventure lies just beyond the horizon!
More than seconds remaining in the year. Unfortunately, I have to bid you farewell for now. Dusk approaches, I must ready the camp.
Fucking shit, you're right, here.
>He quickly kisses the hem of his sleeve, lightly tapping you on the shoulder with it afterwards
There, don't want the whole league thinking Jesus and I are best buds, fuck.
Well yeah, that's what I said. It doesn't matter whether you have 20 or 1 1T events, because the sizes are pre-decided.
I do think the simulator has a bias towards larger event sizes, though.
>alma kissing the space marine
Thats some fine heresy
>He smiles and nods
I will have fresh tea ready by the time you return. I look forward to your questions. Have a good evening, Sir Livingstone!
