Not *this* Akrasia

Oh my.

Apparently there is a 'role-playing game' out there in the internets called 'Akrasia'.  It is about role-playing magical wolves.  Or something like that.  (I couldn't bring myself to read much, but the focus definitely is on wolves.)

Needless to say, I have nothing to do with this game.  (And why it would be called 'Akrasia' is baffling.  Do wolves suffer from weakness of the will?)

I refuse to link to it here.  If you're curious, google it -- but brace yourself with a glass of whisky first.



  1. If you actually read what was on the site -- which is very well put together, might I add, I wish I found forum rpg sites half so well organized when I'm looking for online roleplay -- you would have discovered that 'Akrasia' is in reference to a weakening of will that renders a strain of immortals in their setting mortal.

    But oh no, magical wolves. Why it's as baffling as random squamous things flopping out of the ocean, isn't it.

    People play what they want to play; I fail to see why you feel the need to take a swipe at their hard work just because it's not your cup of tea.

    1. Fair enough, taichara. Thanks for the explanation as well.

  2. In gaming as with all things De gustibus non est disputandum

    Magical Wolves can be cool in the right kind do game. Blue Rose (a D20 variant) has some twee stuff but is genrally pretty solid and the Rhydan (magic wolves) are playable and interesting.

  3. Magical wolves, eh? So is this LARP or a CRPG or what? I suppose it's no worse than Bunnies and Burrows.

  4. Ummmm.

    Phew. Rolled save. Dont have to go.
    What ? I still have to read half the comments ? Crap. I was hoping it was save or die.

  5. Normally I like anything with magic wolves (especially Blue Rose) but this sounds rather... *ahem* dire.

    Huh? Huh!?

  6. I am all for playing a magical wolf as long as I can do it in Mouse Guard =)

  7. As Hobbes would say, "homo homini lupus". :-)
