Planescape: Torment and Torment: Tides of Numenera

In category: General

not sure what category this would fit into, generally speaking it could fit in any category on this site really...

the question is that if there are no exceptions to Rule34 (and many sites like this one), why is there nothing for these two games or the books/comics...

there are other games that should have something by now too such as Pillars of Eternity/Tyranny that also have nothing anywhere connected to them either, its strange that these holes exist within the hentai/rule34 communities where pretty much everything has been touched upon or debased or whatever at some point...

is it respect for the games, the story they tell (or do not tell), the gameplay, or is there some strange and super effective legal something that i am unaware of?

just wondering if anyone thought about games/books/comics like these before or if anyone is planning on creating any spin-off content from these types of games that seem to disappear into the ether (usually after many years but of the same style writing etc.)...

i just want to see what other people think about this sort of weird phenomena...

...?

planescape:_torment and planescape

not to mention, other websites have more

Just because it's not uploaded here doesn't mean it doesn't exist :)


thats not what i meant, i meant that it does not show up much at all on any site/search engine...

btw, i already know about that site and it is barely about planescape and more about DnD specifically...
thanks for the link tho.

i have looked at several rule34 sites, not much there... just find it weird when even things like wall-e have rule34, lol...

kinda fun to see what twisted minds will come up with sometimes, other times it disturbing to see what twisted minds come up with :P

maybe its still too early for these games or not enough people know about them or any of a million other reasons, i just find it odd/weird is all... most things have some kind of rule34 but some have nothing at all, siege of avalon for example but i do not think many people these days remember it or have ever heard of it and it is 20 years plus old now or something...

the only reason i brought it up on this site is because it seems less insane and hostile than other sites and the forums are way more active.

Well.. you said "Why is there nothing" not "why is there so little".. and other things that implied, strongly, that there was a complete lack of adult content for these games. ("that should have something" "that also have nothing anywhere" "these holes exist where pretty much everything has been touched on"... etc)

"not existing" is different than there being very little content.

some of it (books/movies/games/etc.) has NO CONTENT, but it is a generalized statement, dang grammar police... i do the same thing when people make similar statements because understanding general sense verses literal sense changes to entire meaning of what is being asked or talked about.

anyways...

> but it is a generalized statement, dang grammar police

Well, it's not.... grammar. It's word choice. Word choice is a really important thing. A lot of words in english are a bit fuzzy: some, a couple, a few, not many, etc.. but "Nothing" implies zero. a complete lack. "next to nothing" is one or two, "almost nothing", and "basically nothing" all imply a very small number. Nothing is zero. It's not really a fuzzy word.

I took you at your word--that there was nothing--and i was surprised, because it's such a popular game. Surely there was SOME r34. I googled for it, I found some on the other website. I found one that was a good fit for e621, and I found the source. I spent about 10 minutes trying to figure out how to pull highest quality from tumblr. I spent about 5 minutes tagging it. When I uploaded it, I was surprised to discover that the picture I had chosen has already been posted 5 months ago.

I'm not angry, but, uh, yeah. The words you use really matter, when the word you use has a precise meaning. c_c

Anyway *sigh* To actually address your question, it's an older game--1999. While it's a very popular game, most fan content tends to be created in the 'rush of hype' after a product is released. It's rare that something old becomes popular again. So while you might have people talking about deciding the draw their character character from an old game while playing it again, it's a drips-and-drops thing. Once in a while. Maybe you've got that one guy who loves the game and draws mostly fanart of it/them, despite the fact that the character's not "relevant" anymore, but mostly, it's a dead fandom.

Now, the world of 1999 was very different. 1999 was the time when you were VERY lucky if you had a scanner, cameras weren't digital yet so you didn't see photographs of artwork, normally. Most work was done on paper, with real media. Some people used digital media, but it was pretty rare. I remember being utterly floored when my friend bought me by very first art tablet.

If they were posted online, then they were small. 100KB was A LOT back in that era. (I actually have access to a picture I was VERY proud of and posted as BIG as I could. It was 795x568, was a bright rainbow of colors, and was 165KB in size. It was huge.) ... a lot of these places where things were posted have gone down. Geocities killed a lot. A lot of people just took stuff down. More often, we used real names rather than screen names, especially in regards to our art, and the world of making porn was... different. Some people did it, but we were all becoming aware of the fact that what you did could be connected to your real name, and that was scary--so even if you did have the world's biggest repository of Gadget Hackwrench fanart, you took that stuff down when you were thinking about getting a job where someone MIGHT look you up online. And sometimes, we just grew out of it. Obsessions with animals or cartoon characters was even more taboo than it is today. Websites cost money, and while people did post adult artwork, it wasn't with anywhere near the... fecundity that we do today.

Anyway, my rambling point is... most planescape fanart is back in the past. If you want it, you're gonna have to dig for it. If you can find nay not posted on any booru websites, that'd probably be pretty neat to upload, from an archival point of view. Many of my earliest uploads here were basically Me realizing "wow, there's not much alvin and the chipmunks porn. ... I'll fix it." (this was, of course, before the recent movie revival.)

AS for PoE and others, well, some games just don't attract artists. fanart is generally an expression of love, not just ticking things off the checklist. it's not a comment on how GOOD a game is or isn't, jsut how much inspiration there is. *shrugs* I dunno.
