Skotos Forums Closing: September 30

The Skotos Forums are officially closing on September 30, 2020. They will go read-only on that date, and will be removed entirely sometime afterward.

We encourage the games that spun off of Skotos to create new discussion mediums of their own, and some have already done so. But the centralized discussions for Skotos will soon be a thing of the past (just as the centralized Skotos site is).

We've also posted a goodbye message to the community on our main page, which you can find here:

  • COM WHO and WHO

    A question came up on this during an OOC discussion with another player...

    I'd like to point out that theis is a PLAYER tool, and not a CHARACTER one. IC-ly, you cannot tell who is listening to com, who is unconscious (exceptions, medical people with red bracelets get notification when someone is unconscious, and AOC who have blue bracelets can tell when a relatively new character goes through a doorway in the hatchery).

    Many characters have their com on all the time, even if the Player is off line. i.e. Fionn (Nell) has her com on 99.9% of the time, even if I am not on-line. So saying "I can sense Fionn is listening to com" well all my friends know Fionn doesn't turn her com off, so that's a no brainer.

    As a Player tool it lets you know if someone that you were waiting to play with has arrived. At that point, you can ask over com "Is *insert name* awake?" or "Has anyone seen *name* recently?


    Also something which was mentioned (and discussed) over a year ago - all you can tell over com is the words, no emotions or sounds are transferred. So when someone emotes over com -[com] Fionn probably laughs - it is because you are friends with the person and you know them well enough to understand their personality and how they are most likely to react, and if they are joking or angry.

    Just wanted to clarify this for people, since it came up in a private discussion, but we have lots of people join in the last year or so that might not be aware of this.
