Looking for playful insults

Post by tomminator » 03 Nov 2019, 11:10

For a to be released training quest I'm looking for some playful insults. The idea is that the drill sergeant calls you names when doing the quest.
Currently I only have these boring and unoriginal insults:
  • "Hey noob!"
  • "Hey somethingwholooklikeawarrior..."
  • "Sup' chibi." (I had to look this one up myself, apparently chibi is a japanese nickname for small and weak people)
So I'm calling you, the community for help! Put your writing hat on and start calling me names!
This is not a placeholder

Hey toams,

as I was thinking of referencing the Insult Fighting from Monkey Island 1 somewhere in the new game, but I have not really an idea how-to, I think we may use some of those here. Perhaps someone will even realize where they originate. So, here are some that may be used:

- You fight like a Dairy Farmer!
- Have you stopped wearing diapers yet?
- I've heard you are a contemptible sneak.
- You have the manners of a beggar.
- Only once I have seen such a coward.
- I hope you have a boat ready for a quick escape.
- I usually see people like you passed-out on the tavern floor.
- You're as repulsive as a monkey in a negligee.
- You're the ugliest monster ever created.
- Would you like to be buried, or cremated?

Perhaps one or more of this can be used.

Players might use the insult / constructive critiques of baits in the form of the various stages of levels of mobs. This allows having quick descriptors of player/s abilities and can be used as insult, or positive criticism of ability.

For example a warrior that's Fallen bait might encourage a struggling newbie who is obviously Maggot bait by calling them Moggun bait. A player struggling might then comprehend the higher level warrior is in effect cheering them on, suggesting they're doing good work. Whereas if a warrior calls someone Piou bait it might be rather insulting if they're of the level of Fallen bait.

This kind of "scaling" system of criticism can be used positively, or negatively. It's also rather generic so as to not be totally offensive, abusive. It is a system revolving around the mobs found in game so as to be familiar for players in game.

I mention it is not intended to be abusive though players need to know anything really can be turned to abuse. Intention is the key to all action, gestures. People can see you acting as a jerk for they can see your intent in the actions/ gestures.

Don't continually harangue other players with degrading lower level insults of them. Once or twice a day, or every few days is sufficient to be constructive encouragement / criticism. Go beyond that and you do start being abusive of others. Doing that I think might encourage GMs to offer you a kick, possible ban. Besides that consider the Golden Rule ( http://goldenrule.org/ ).

- piou bait
- maggot bait
- pinkie bait
- slime bait
- fluffy bait
- moggun bait
- terranite bait
- fallen bait
- lost bait
- witch bait

I enjoy coming up cogs in the wheels. It helps keep the wheels turning, if wheels turn there's possibility for forward moving. Then again someone might put it in reverse too. *chuckles* Excuse me, going to try stop Murphy.
