midwinter : (18 August 2017 - 04:07 PM) I think it's because people are starting to talk about Halloween and Yuletide, so I'm getting into that end-of-the-year frame of mind
Hex : (19 August 2017 - 02:55 PM) I could set this year's up soon if you'd like?  I was thinking of starting earlier as well.   :icon_tengai:
midwinter : (19 August 2017 - 09:37 PM) Oh man, my heart is saying yes but my head is saying, how much earlier are we talking? Cause I think even starting in November we had people sign up and then forget it was a thing
Rezz : (19 August 2017 - 10:24 PM) (I'm game for whenever)
Eisenalex : (19 August 2017 - 11:43 PM) Oh, christmas exchange. I'd like to participate, too.
Eisenalex : (19 August 2017 - 11:48 PM) and since I now "lost" my job, I'll have more time to actually work on stuff, lol.
Eisenalex : (20 August 2017 - 01:03 AM) Is anything wrong with the forum? Because my browser keeps giving me warnings about it for quite a while now.
midwinter : (20 August 2017 - 10:08 AM) I'm not sure :\ I haven't been getting warnings, and I think it might be because the forum software is out of date
midwinter : (20 August 2017 - 10:08 AM) but the main site did get hacked once, so idk
Hex : (20 August 2017 - 10:21 AM) I think we could be okay if we set up the sidebar to promote the exchange, so people won't forget.  I could post the sign up topic today if you guys like?
Eisenalex : (20 August 2017 - 10:22 AM) Ah, ok. I sent the FB page a message a while ago but didn't get a response, so I thought I could just give it a try without it being too dangerous for me, lol.
Hex : (20 August 2017 - 07:33 PM) Or not.
Rezz : (20 August 2017 - 09:23 PM) Or not
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 12:59 PM) Whoa, I just heard Yashuu say "You might as well give up" to Kei - I don't think I've ever heard that before
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:00 PM) You tell him, Ms Kuze
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:42 PM) Ohhhh
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:42 PM) Okay, Miku's first crawlspace, the bodies at the back behind the gratings are the bodies in the entrance to the Bell Hallway
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:43 PM) That is cool, I never realised that before
Hex : (22 August 2017 - 05:16 PM) :o !
Eisenalex : (23 August 2017 - 03:20 PM) The Dreadout games are currently in the lowest tier of the Humble Bundle, if anybody here is interested.

It's strange, right? So many people go to the mountain with no intention of killing themselves but end up dying anyway; Fuyuhi and Haruka went with the express purpose of killing themselves, but survived, and were allowed to leave the mountain. Does anyone have any theories about why? (Apart from "game plot required it.")

 

I can think of two possible reasons. It might have been partly about unresolved feelings - Fuyuhi still wanted to confess, even if Haruka already knew how she felt, and maybe deep down they wanted to die together as more of a lovers' suicide, rather than as part of a group. Or maybe it's about Haruka and her affinity with the maidens; Chiaki was influenced by the Isame, so you'd think the whole group would have died in the same way, but Haruka had greater potential, and either hadn't reached the point where she could return to the water yet, or by Glancing the others as they died, upgraded herself to Box-Class Maiden and was therefore too valuable to be allowed to drown in a lake. That doesn't really explain Fuyuhi, though.

 

I'd love to hear if anyone else has any ideas!

Couldn't it be just by simple chance?  If I recall correctly the Umbrella lady had been taking flowers up the mountain and praying there for a while before she ended up dying.  At least that's how it sounded from her cutscene.

I'm leaning towards option two.  Maybe it has something to do with the closeness to death creating a resistance to it thing?  Fuyuhi was already determined to die with Haruka, but the others were seemingly just possessed/influenced.
