Hello, future friends! I’ve been following Insurgence since it’s inception, but I’ve always lurked. Imho, It’s the best Pokemon game out there, let alone the best fangame. I’ve just today started a new nuzlock. (hopefully this time with an outcome interesting enough to make a story/comic/something out of!)
I hope to do some spritework here, I’ll be taking requests shortly.
Does this place have a roleplay section? If not, can I start one?
#FAQ for the Highly Curious
“Which socio-political boxes are the most accurate summary of your cultural background and general beliefs, for quick a shorthand (but of course ultimately flawed and un-nuanced) understanding of your likely opinions?”
Ah, what a thoughtful question! My identities and affiliations are myriad, but here are a few that I conform to pretty closely and care to tell:
I am a (FTM) Transman I am ADHD I am a Gen Y white guy living something like The Bay Area of the USA I tend to vote democrat, then Independant. Never republican. I am poor af I am a Rationalist in the vein of Eliezer Yudkowsky and Scott Alexander I would download my consciousness into a robot body, given the chance, but I would rather repair and improve the body I’m currently in. I would rather not die by any force other than my own hand, and certainly not of old age. I am not religious, per say, but I enjoy ritual. Sysiphus and Mr. Peanutbutter are my role models.
“What activities do you enjoy?”
I play Dungeons and Dragons 2 to 3 times a week. “Pretend” is the purest form of play, and nothing comes closer, imo, than a good ol’ fashioned pen’n’paper. TTRPG. I both play and DM.
My favorite games are Dwarf fortress, Minecraft, and Nuzlock Pokemon. I suppose I’m an artist at heart.
“How would I contact you if I wanted to be buddies?”
email. Aspenstarscape AT gmail DOT com.
“What is your favorite Pokemon?”
Gallade, followed closely by Dragonair.
“What is your favorite color?”
“What is your Quest?”
I want to become a software architect, just like my dad.
“What is your favorite thing to do in a pokemon game?”
Imagine elaborate backstories for my pokemon and other NPCs, and cry my heart out when they die.
