#4947401 GMC's writing topic

My tongue flicked out and licked the chocolate-filled cherry sucker I held in front of me. I savored the taste, waiting for the moment when the outside would fall away and I could crunch through to the chewy chocolate. Out of the corner of my eye, I caught one of my coworkers staring at me. She was a beautiful woman, a few years my senior. I popped the sucker back into my mouth and placed my hands back on my keyboard, ready to continue work. Still, she watched me.
"Are you enjoying that?" she finally asked, smirking.
"Yeah," I replied, rolling the stick of the sucker through my teeth. The ball ended up in my other cheek. "Did you bring these?"
"Maybe," she said. "Why?"
"So I can tell my wife who to blame when I come home with chocolate on my breath, and cherry stains on my collar."
"Oh?" she said, in a sultry voice. "Are you really on a diet?"
"Of some sort," I replied, spinning in my chair to face her. "I don't get along with it very well most of the time."
"Well, in that case, tomorrow I will bring the biggest, most delectable chocolate cake that I can find. You know, one of the ones with multiple layers, resting in fudge and as rich and sweet as the sugar can make them."
"Go on," I said, feeling my self-control ebb away. She walked towards me, leaned in closer, and obliged.
"Decorative icing will top off the cake, spelling out your name," she said, smiling. She was close enough now that I could smell peppermint.
"Mhm," she said. "And right next to that will be a carton of ice cream."
"What kind?" My mouth sags, watering slightly, and I lean forwards.
"But... but what about my diet?" I say, attempting to resist. She catches on quickly, understanding my true desires. My passions. My love.
"What about it? Your wife will never have to know. It'll just be you and the cake."
"Please," I whisper, holding my hand out. I grab a peanut butter cup off of the desk next to her and begin to unwrap it. "I need this."
"You deserve it," she replied.

I reached the chocolate in the sucker.

In a good marriage I prefer symbiosis. I also think it's incredibly sexist to assign leadership on the basis of having a penis. But this quote was with regard to mysonygy - my biggest gripe with it is that God allegedly punished women by hurting their genitals.

"If a man seduces a virgin who is not betrothed and lies with her, he shall give the bride-price for her and make her his wife."

In the Bible, heterosexuality and homosexuality were never on equal grounds. Much like men and women, really. The predisposition you talk about is reflected in the types of punishment. And it's still here today, with the very shallow acceptance of homosexuality and female rights, world-wide.

Symbiosis in marriage is good. I am married, and my wife makes most of the decisions, because I care what she thinks/wants to do. I have the final say, but that matters little. Ideal marriage, as stated in the NT, is like that.

That is true, but mostly because sex=marriage in the OT. If they were already married, they die. Rest of passage.

That is true. The first bit mostly, since God made Male and Female for each other. As far the female rights and stuff... Women today want to be treated equally with men. This is not the same thing as being treated as men. There are general physiological and psychological differences. As far as rights and wages, they should be equal. That's a deep topic, but quite a bit of the bible reflects that. Still it does require women to defer to men in the house, and that loses most people, so I'll shorten the discussion there.

I find it absurd that the burden of proofs falls on the person saying slavery is wrong, but whatever, I'll play along.

- Human beings are not items to be bought and sold, their autonomy must be respected.
- Slavery is often associated with physical mistreatment, various kinds of abuse, and exploitation.
- Often a product of barbaric colonial practises which construed native populations as lesser beings.
- Most forms of slavery leave the enslaved without any defensible rights or payment. If your master mistreated you, tough luck.

Historically, there were (rarer) cases of slavery which are as you described: food and shelter in exchange for work. However, in a modern society, normal employment has taken over as the means through which this is done. We simply cannot permit slavery as it opens up too many ways for the enslaved to be abused. By relying on the master to treat their slaves fairly, with barely any accountability, you don't have a stable employer-employed relationship: you have complete dominance and power on one side, and complete submissiveness on the other. Not exactly my idea of healthy.

Sorry, I got a little trolly. I completely agree on most points. The Bible was anti-mistreating slaves and such. It also required slaves to be set free after an alloted time... unless they were war prisoners. But that's a different thing. Basically, Slavery exists today in working off of debts, but it's abstract. Men are owned, and their masters are credit card companies, banks, the government, families... anyone who holds something over you. If you try to stop living under their thumb, they will take away 'payment' from you first.

I'm not advocating slavery. I just think that people see the word and immediately think of abuse, a lack of rights, being imprisoned forever... and slavery doesn't have to have that.

But for reals, it's mostly going to. So slavery is bad.

Edit: Sorry about going off-topic, but I love religious discussions with reasonable people. No yelling or flat-out refusal. You guys even humored my stupid question. Thanks.

Let me spell it out for you. Slavery is wrong. Very wrong. Is, always has been.

Why? Explain how slavery is inherently wrong. And I mean in general, not some specific form of slavery.


Literal Misogyny was, is, and will not ever be a part of Gods plan by any stretch of the imagination.

"I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you."


Man got some responsibility in there too. But it's good to know that, by your definition, someone with a leadership position in a house/church/government would be oppressing their servants by default. Anarchy must be the only way to go, eh?


Not even literal Homophobia (the dislike of those who are homosexual) is biblical.

"If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them."


Aye. And people were butchered for sex before marriage as well. Heterosexual sex.

Sin is serious, yo. All of it. Doesn't mean we have to hate someone with a predisposition towards a particular sin.

If some people find solace in religion...

Let's not derail the original intent of this topic.

Finding solace is the intent. Sooooo

Therein comes religion. And I haven't seen any bickering so far.


Edit: Ninja'd

I agree with you. People don't hate those who have illicit sex before marriage, or tell white lies, or deal with greed. It's kind of disgusting how people single one sin out and then persecute people based on it.

Slavery as simply a pure concept isn't inherently evil. In fact, slavery in those days were radically different than Chattel Slavery (modern slavery). Please read this, it is very strongly based in the actual Bible.
Literal Misogyny was, is, and will not ever be a part of Gods plan by any stretch of the imagination. Not even literal Homophobia (the dislike of those who are homosexual) is biblical. If you want to stretch misogyny to incorporate what is a part of God's plan then automatically you think your judgement is superior to God. Committing blasphemy is a major sin, friend.
How arrogant must one be to turn away from faith because of a misguided belief in mankind's lack of fallibility?

Sorry, didn't mean to downvote.

Slavery in a technical sense, by biblical standards, exists today. People sell themselves into it with debt. Proverbs 22:7. And, you know, slavery gets a bad rep in the US, but having a servant that's contracted to work for you so that you give them food is a slave. I am a slave to the government. So what?

The issue is that slaves aren't treated like people sometimes, and that's sick. It's not indicative of all slavery, though. The bible even compares being a Christian (and not being a christian) to slavery. Choose your masters and all. Roundabout Romans 6:20.

As for Misogyny, it depends on what you think of women. In biblical teaching, men and women have their responsibilities. If you read the end of proverbs, those responsibilities are upheld, but in a different way. It just delegates responsibilities in marriage, and protects women in the culture they were in with certain laws. It also tells women not to talk while a man is trying to teach them from the scriptures, but that's just rude.

But yeah, Bible is pretty clear on homosexuality. It catches a lot of flak for that, but it says what it says. Those parts don't match. Don't put them together. I could go and make words on this but I've lost everyone already



Edit: On topic, even Christians have these questions sometimes. If the purpose if heaven, and we've made that decision, why not go ahead and die? That answer is different for different people.

Some say the purpose is saving others with them. A good purpose.

I kinda want to leave my mark on the world, and simply enjoy my existence. I suggest Ecclesiastes for anyone who wants the biblical view.


(Short story: Ecclesiastes says everything material is ultimately pointless, so remember God and serve him, Work, enjoy food and pleasure, enjoy your youth, stuff like that. I mean, even if there is no point, we can still enjoy it, right? Keep makin' them games.)

The day I create a game that invokes Rule 34 is the day I can die a happy man

This. I am against it happening, but I would take it as a sign of success on the internet.


It's like being parodied by Weird Al in the music world. It's a sign of recognition. Only creepier, and more perverted. I wouldn't like the R34 stuff, but I would take it as a compliment.

What do you guys think, should I (or someone else) host a separate Challenge for romantic relationships/romance? That way if the theme has nothing to do with romance in the next jam, no conflict would arise. Would anyone like to be judge or confirm that they would sign up?

I'd love to review the games, but I can't write romance

Looks like I missed the previous jam. Someone on ask.fm wanted me to review and vote again like I did last time.

I'm out of school with a job now, so I don't have as much time, but...

Maybe... maybe next jam. If not, I can start making it a tradition of reviewing the top five games as a prize each jam. Just a thought.

You should make an updated version and a 'true to the original'  version. It would be easy, no?


Edit: Also, if you export it, people without GM:S can play it

Edit2: Clicking 'keep aspect ratio' in the settings will make the game look good in fullscreen.


Good luck, love this game, wanna play it without slowdown

#4908974 Friendly Mafia - Mafia Win o.o

Posted by speedchuck on 20 November 2015 - 03:01 AM

Why are there three hints relating to me and only one relating to Rougebare when everyone else has two hints?

This is a good point. If the points were even, except for the mafiosi, I'd expect the faker to have an extra roytheshot point to balance things out.

This certainly points to Hizno as scum in my eyes, from my perspective. Really, based on reactions and personal townfirms, I see little alternative.
Vote Hizno

If roy is town, then blue is also town from roy firming them. Rogue is town by my estimation, and that leaves Hizno.

roy would be the keystone in this, and is my second suspect should Hizno fail.

Derevo feels slightly inclined to shoot the madman that has intruded on this battle, but he shows some restraint. Instead, he walks over to the man with foam at his mouth and loudly asks, "What are you doing here!?"
