Potentially cute if they do.

Creepy if they fall in 'love' with them based purely on their appearance. If they somehow communicate with them or knew them before it can work, but someone declaring their 'love' for someone based purely on what they look like as a statue is creepy and weird.

Depends on how far he takes it. It can be cute if he's just a bit lovestuck, regrets what happened to the petrified person and decides to slay that monster/wizard that caused it.

Creepy if he demands private time with the statue.

>> No.50943309

Could be similar to Snow White if the adventurer believes the petrified woman can be saved.

Though it definitely borders on creepy depending on how the petrified woman takes it.

Is the woman aware of her surroundings and knows what's going on? Or is everything black and all senses and memory frozen still?

It's a creepy historical remnant based on purely evaluating the object of your affections by appearance. Love is something that comes with mutual understanding, not some sort of mystical bullshit just from looking at someone.

No. Love comes first, and is born of a deeply felt instinctual magnetism. Understanding comes later as you come to know the person through years of close proximity and mutual reliance.

...I think that just kills you. Like, best case scenario there is that your flesh at the border with the rock rots and dies (due to lack of proper blood flow) and you have to amputate something. But if vital organs are included in the petrified region, its basically better to just leave them petrified in the hope than you can fully cure them in the future.

That's just lust. Not love.

It can be cute or creepy depending on how the character and player. It can be cute if the character's actions are portrayed as comedic and/or are genuinely romantic, altruistic and take the petrified woman's feelings into account. It becomes creepy if it is portrayed as obsessive and/or objectifying, selfish and focused on the character's own perversions.

Respecting boundaries means knowing when to act on your feelings and when not to, when to make your feelings their concern, and when it shouldn't.
A lot of people fuck this part up. An example I can put to you, from my own experience?
>Cosplay is not consent
This became a thing because people assume that at cons, you can do away with the standard notions of conduct between different individuals, or make broad assumptions about what is and isn't welcome.
This bridges both genders, before you take that tack. I've seen my bro who cosplays MCU Thor getting assaulted by groups of girls, sometimes while he is right next to his gf, and he makes it clear it is unwanted, but is ignored.

If you have feelings for someone, but respect the social lines between individuals and their own feelings towards you, then there is no problem. However, A LOT OF PEOPLE DO NOT DO THIS.

In all editions of D&D where Stone to Flesh is a thing, it either only works on petrified creatures or turns normal stone into lifeless meat.

Also:
The flamberge is an undulating blade that is found on both long blades and rapiers. When parrying with such a sword, unpleasant vibrations may be transmitted into the attacker's blade. These vibrations cause the blades to slow contact with each other because additional friction is encountered with each wave. The term flamberge was misapplied to refer to two-handed swords and was used later to refer to cup hilt rapiers with a straight blade

Well, it'd help if you'd stop referring to things as if this was a conversation we ought to have because we perpetrate the misdeeds you so much talk about.
It'd also help if you didn't branch off based on the bullshit of the very same person you are referring to.
And it'd help even more if this was on topic or at all related to the pointsmade by the anons.

But guess what, you failed to help yourself by acting the way you chose to. Now deal with it.

Or if you're willing to know who really wants to have this conversation, it's mostly not pasty white kids who post edgy shit online, but men like those in my family who are low income, often abused substances, have a preexisting history of horrible family conditions and often have done acts more than once frequently with the knowledge of others (who are either afraid or complacent) and often targetting children.
But it'd be too hard for you to deal with actual problems rather than shit on some retards online right?

And you've yet to establish that it's true. What I do know is that the pheromones responsible for 90% of human emotion are not visual in nature.
>YOU are a woman, autist, whatever
Well, I'm not a woman. The rest is debatable.
>He wasn't talking about rubbing his dick on someone's face
He was responding to "you shouldn't rub your dick on someone who can't give consent" with "affection requires consent?" If he meant something different, he has a shitty way of expressing it.
>Try telling a woman to pay for the first date sometime
I have been splitting checks for years, and nobody gives a shit. Maybe you're the one who should actually go on a date before making stupid statements.
Alternatively, move away from the American South.
>Don't diddle disabled people
I must applaud this line because it's pure poetry.


>>50944804
You do realize the differences between men and women are more than visual, right? Attraction is 90% pheromones, and men produce different ones from women. That's why a lot of people don't date trans - unless they're far into HRS, they smell like their birth sex.

Buddy, that was the first post I made in this thread. Up until then I hadn't said anything, so it's actually you that's assuming.

That said, I don't blame you for it. This is the problem with 4chan. Anonymity is great but discussions get confused.

>yet to establish it's tue
Correct! Finally catching on, are you? It's still being debated, so just greentexting it with no context and implying "this statement is obviously wrong therefor it needs no refutation" is a bit silly, isn't it?

>not a woman
You missed the point. I was clarifying their intention, not trying to state fact.

>dick rubbing post before affection
I think it would be smarter to take each statement on it's own merit in a jumbled discussion like this. That said, lets set the issues aside and just drill down to the bedrock.

All dickrubbing and creeping aside and out of the picture, do you disagree with the following statement: you cannot choose who you feel affection for.

>>50945498
To me, it seems like you view love as being "love + the interpersonal framework that holds relationships together".

I see love as a neurochemical reaction that happens in the brain when a person devotes a lot of their time to thinking about someone and associates pleasure with thoughts of them.

Yes, there are social constructs we stack up around that (sharing our pasts, dreams, quirks, responsibilities, etc), but I don't see them as being mandatory for love itself.

Is it creepy, weird, and unhealthy for a guy to fall in love with an image (statue) and his own daydreams about that image? Probably. But on a chemical level it can still be love.

This was a DLC character in Dragon Age: Origins.

You're probably right. But as one of the people saying that the falling in love with a statue scenario is creepy, I don't support any of the shit that so many universities are pulling. The regressive left is fucking insane, and makes the work of actual progress and improving things more difficult, setting an extreme negative example for others to point out.

The moderate left feels the same about those fucks as the moderate right must feel about racists, gun toting militia types and such. The crazy just manifests in different ways.

Love is a chemical reaction that lasts from 3-4 years on average. Delaying sex can make them last up to 6 years on average, but delaying affection through long periods of courtship reduces the duration of it by up to 2 years.

Women idolize taking it slow because courtship is all about being pampered without a need to give anything back. Men believe taking it slow is the right way because they've been trained all their life to grind from the bottom. But in reality there is no benefit to waiting in love and it just reduces the timeframe in which you will naturally enjoy each other's company.

Plato identified seven types of love and modern psychology recognises six (there is no behavioural or hormonal difference between kinship and friendship) and of these only one has to be sexual and only one can't be sexual. Also, only two are potentially about power and only one is objectifying (pragma, literally viewing a lover as a utility) and that one is more common in women than in men.

The story goes that he heard tell that the king's daughter was imprisoned by a dragon and that anyone who could slaw the beast and save the princess would receive half the kingdom and the princess's hand in marriage. So David waltzes into the castle, waves his sword about and not more than an hour later walks out with a fresh dragon's head strapped to his saddlebags and a princess slung over his shoulder. He meets with the king, gets his prize, and the second he leaves the castle he sells his deed to half the kingdom, gets a better sword and sends some urchin off the street to take his place at the wedding. That kid turned out to be a horrible ruler, you know."

"Another legend claims that David lugged around a statue of some wench for a year and a half, claimed he was seeking the gorgon that petrified her so that he could break the curse. So he finds the snake-haired cunt, lops her head off, gets the girl de-stonified, takes her in his arms, drops her off at the first tavern he comes across, and sets off to go wake up some sleeping bitch two kingdoms off."

A running theme in my current game is that adventuring is an inherently consuming and self-destructive profession. For example, a common song one could hear the drunkards at most any village tavern bleating out details the life of a young man who goes on a quest for great riches, uses his wealth to become a lord, acts as a fair and just ruler for many years, and then musters his people to go to war in an attempt to recapture the glory of his adventuring days, leading to him getting killed, his men getting slaughtered, and his lands being conquered.

New to the thread. There are examples from literature of men and women developing a fascination with some "ideal", like a statue or a painting -- the dreamed-of lover, as it were.

Something like this could be an interesting hook: like an NPC who has fallen in love with a statue, or a PC who has fallen for a woman in a painting, not knowing who she is. Lots of different ideas can spring up from this, so long as the player is up for it.
