SnackPak_: lrrWOW
Singenmeister: Looking up = skillz
SaxPython: we were approaching "Whose on first" Territory
BrowneePoints: nelly and ben play on pad
BrowneePoints: wheeler and adam play on stick
Thefluffiestguineapig: @SaxPython Not the worst option but since it's about the controller I can see the need to clearly delineate between helpful notification and other
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also most drummers bring their own kit
Thefluffiestguineapig: I dated a drummer in high school. He was an ass
SaxPython: @Thefluffiestguineapig SabaPing
Thefluffiestguineapig: Now I know it was because he was trying to flex with skills that talented drummers find basic
Thefluffiestguineapig: My dad was in a drum corp in Chicago in the 70s and utterly destroyed him
Thefluffiestguineapig: By asking questions, he had MS at that point and couldn't play
Singenmeister: In fairness, drummers are the one kind of musician that simply cannot serenade, no matter how sincerely intended.
Singenmeister: (I mean, unless they’re able to play some smooth jazz on z steel drum)
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Singenmeister That's fair, although sometimes I have been around people dating musicians who do not have the skills they think they do and I deeply admire a friend's partner who was upfront and said "Look, if you want to experience my music I can practice drum stuff but it will just be complicated and not romantic"
Thefluffiestguineapig: She ended up taking tap lessons in secret to surprise him (I met her in an adult tap class and it was utterly adorable)
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also I was putting my frozen leftovers out while the oven preheats, did they say that past a certain point the rewind is broken here?
adept_nekomancer: It seems to be complaining about the off-line actions in the timeline, but I am unclear on what the rules are.
LordZarano: Need to line up the characters turns with each other
Thefluffiestguineapig: This game has quite a steep difficulty spike
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also the phrase "I'm out of ALIGN" sounds like something from a bad romance novel
Juliamon: It sounds like my mom hinting that we need to make a Costco run
adept_nekomancer: "We have align at home"
RealGamerCow: i think we need to hear that sting a few more times.
James_the_Dabbler: I do not understand this at all
adept_nekomancer: I think it really wants all four characters to take an action at the same time, on one of the vertical lines, but that's just my best guess, not any actual knowledge
LordZarano: !advice
LRRbot: Don't pull a Beej.
Thefluffiestguineapig: That is decent advice
Thefluffiestguineapig: For clarification I am saying "pull a Beej" is different than just Beej being Beej.
Singenmeister: @james_the_dabbler I missed the earlier streams of this and am right there with you.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Singenmeister I caught the one stream of this they did and am still lost if that helps
LordZarano: Are the 4 turns at the beginning of green's route definitely necessary?

James_the_Dabbler: Ian can you go up and/or right with this controller?

KeytarCat: Studio space was 20/person/hour the couple times I've been picked up to play at them
KeytarCat: But I think I misread the situation
Thefluffiestguineapig: Did we really actually gain a rival all female band?

kusinohki: (says the insomniac)
LordZarano: "The exact origin of these sweets is yet to be definitively determined; however, the Turkish word lokum comes from the Arabic al-lukum."
LordZarano: "In the Arab world, Turkish delights are called rāḥat al-ḥulqūm which means 'throat comfort'."
KeytarCat: What are the stagger restrictions?
iarethel0ser: @KeytarCat I think the overall answer is "Good question. Next question."
Thefluffiestguineapig: @iarethel0ser You beat me to it

Thefluffiestguineapig: @KeytarCat I figure you will be with me on this but rival things as a narrative tool in a story are totally fine, within reason and not when they clearly have just lifted a bunch of tropes without any consideration of what message they sent
Thefluffiestguineapig: @LordZarano That makes me suspect that real Turkish delight is not the packaged candy I was dared to try by a middle school classmate and sounds wonderful
Juliamon: I mean, it's a very divisive sweet

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, trialbynarrative! (Today's storm count: 17)
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon That's fair, rosewater as an ingredient and component in scents is divisive as is
Juliamon: It's also something of a cultural thing on top of that
Juliamon: (see also: my sadness at trying to find rose-free amber attars/mukhallats)
Thefluffiestguineapig: For me it's more I want to give things the best possible presentation I can. Like when I went to a local Mexican grocery that also happens to have an ice cream place in the back I asked what they would recommend and tried what they suggested. It was spicy and frozen and the only sweet component was fruit. Not something I would have every day but it was great and listening to the grandmother talk mostly in Spanish once she realized I understood and would ask if I missed a word was amazing
SquareDotCube: Have you considered the very bottom of the map for the drummer?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon I cannot imagine the sheer volume of effort that would take to even begin to attempt
LordZarano: "traditional varieties are often flavored with rosewater, mastic gum, bergamot orange, or lemon."
LordZarano: So rosewater not necessarily a requirement for Turkish delight
Thefluffiestguineapig: Bergamot in desserts is often fascinating
Thefluffiestguineapig: I’m also one of the weirdos who likes mastic gum tho
SquareDotCube: I feel like the tables of the food court is key to the drummer
Thefluffiestguineapig: You’ve got me, this is something I’m only good at sometimes on the best of days
Thefluffiestguineapig: And since I don’t really completely know the rules here I’m lost

LurkerSpine: I don't think the guards can legally detain him though
KeytarCat: I...I think I understand the resource meter
KeytarCat: I looked up a guide
Thefluffiestguineapig: What I will say is this feels like a game made by someone who wanted it to be set in a specific time but don't truly process how it operated differently
Thefluffiestguineapig: This is a streaming era problem just dropped on a video store setting
TheAinMAP: lrrFINE
SnackPak_: only minor property damage
kusinohki: OH YEAH!!
CururuGuasu: Should be fine. He’s wearing red, so he gets the Kool-Aid Man exemption
Thefluffiestguineapig: AAAAHHHHH
Thefluffiestguineapig: This is just complication for complications sake
KeytarCat: So, the game wants you to turn on the lines, and at different times from other party members. breaking those rules costs meter, and each resource has its own meter
iarethel0ser: I think they said special move lets you move farther.
