i used to love the cold but ive really grown to dislike it... ah well. we paused the call of cthulhu campaign and started playing degenesis instead. i was pretty darn passive and reactive in coc and its such a hopeless setting that punishes you for trying to understand. degenesis is post apoc and a general shithole, but theres hope and youre not getting suffocated by bureaucracy. (the fact that my brilliant physicist girl got stonewalled for having tits in 1920 didnt help any either) (in degenesis i can play an androgynous weirdo and i get so much less shit for that its great) scrappers are a lot of fun. i has a big gun ::D and i can shoot people who annoy me too much. (ammo is mucho expensive tho) we're in so much shit rn after one evening but... its a lot more fun than coc. and everyone was like "you were a lot more active today!" and i was like, yeah, i have so much less difficulty to interact with the setting. coc is too earthlike is part of the reason, i think. period appropriate sexism is annoying af too. and the hopeless part. and the part where knowledge gets punished. i love digging into the meta plot. i dislike hopeless settings. im made of spite and abide by the glitch faqs interpretation of hope as rejection. i dont need hopelessness in my escapism, i got enough of that bullshit irl. it just makes me tired.
