Spoiler alert - Karlach's kink is Ray of Frost, leaving at least one gnome mage with slightly singed lips and stars in his eyes.

Working fine on my end - sounds like ISP filtering or possibly a firewall setting. With an ad blocker to handle popups, you could also try g o k u dot s x - not quite the same server collection, but you might find what you're looking for.

Pssst, can I interest you in some free video games? (feddit.uk)

Howdy pardners, this is a cheeky self-plug for !freegames, a community I’ve created to post limited-time full-game free giveaways. It’s been going a month or two and I’m already claiming games faster than I can play them, so come and join me and make your what-game-to-play choice paralysis worse!

@Arotrios@kbin.social avatar

Oh boy, have I got some treats in store for you...

Question - is it just video games, or are you looking for tabletop RPGs too?

@Arotrios@kbin.social avatar

Pretty much, although these days a lot of folks find it more convenient to have the rules in .pdf for easy access. There's hundreds available. Here's a listing I had posted last night on the @13thFloor magazine I run over here on kbin - happy to crosspost if you feel it fits.

No worries & thanks for the suggestion.

    I buy games based on the following tier scale:

    Gameplay > Performance > Price > Expected time playing > Graphics

    I agree with your point in the post, especially after playing Darktide, which chucked performance out the window for fog and lighting effects. It doesn't matter how pretty your game is if it's rendering at 3fps.

    This reduces the minuscule interest I had in replaying Paladins to a negative number. Smite's been nothing but frustrating garbage, but I thought that with a bit of polish and a lot more character development, Paladins had promise when it came out. Starting a labor dispute to begin a practice that will degrade the overall quality of the game means it's not worth my hard disk space to install their products - it's clear things are only going to get worse for Hi-Rez titles from here.

    What does blocking someone actually do? (kbin.social)

    What does blocking on kbin actually do? I’m asking because it seems incomplete, to put it mildly. If you block someone, they can still see what you post and reply to you and you’re still sent notifications of their replies, even though you can’t see the comment itself (or any replies other people make to comments of an...

    @ernest - just a heads up that I'm experiencing the same bug - notifications from blocked accounts. Wouldn't normally be an issue, but we've got a couple of trolls that like to go back to old threads and keep replying to try and bait a response.

    @Arotrios@kbin.social avatar

    Nope, just don't wanna deal with fucktards after I've blocked them. Shouldn't have to deal with them 2-3 weeks later popping up on my notifications - not a big ask. Dunno how you got offended seeing as I have no idea who you are.

    [PC] Action RPG with multiplayer crossplay (kbin.social)

    My favorite game franchise is Monster Hunter but I currently have played enough of every game in the franchise to be burnt out and am looking for something new. What I like about MH is the action combat system, the small group multiplayer and although most MH games don't have it, I'd like a game similar to this that also...

    @Arotrios@kbin.social avatar

    You might want to give Dauntless a shot. I haven't played it in a while, but it's basically a free monster hunter clone. The graphics weren't up to MH levels, but the combat is solid and the crafting system is pretty fun.

    Haven't played it, but honestly watching the video, it basically looks like a Doom clone built on the Source engine with worse music. Note I support indie devs, but there are a number of glaring issues just in the video that would cause me to stop playing, the first and foremost of which is the "enemies appear out of nowhere" dynamic followed closely by the "forcefields go up and limit your fight area regularly" dynamic. Both are an excuse for shoddy programming and bad level design.

    This one would need a lot of work before I'd drop money on it, and I'm a big FPS horde shooter fan. Hard pass.
