Love potions

Postby Denton » Mon May 27, 2019 3:00 pm #495693

So, love potions give the following message: "You develop feelings for [user], and anyone [user.p_they()] like."
No OOC message that tells you to follow the other person's commands and no antag-style objectives either.

How do admins handle that ingame? Is the victim forced to follow commands/protect them, or is it just a roleplay thing?

If love potions are similar to hypo flashes or brainwashing, I'll definitely want to add an OOC message to clarify that.

Where do you actually get them in game?
P.S. Shoot Dr. Allen on sight and dissolve his body in acid. Don't burn it.

They're from charged pink xenobio slime extracts.

They've never come up in any player interactions I've had to mediate.

Apparently using it on someone give them your faction, so if an antag used it they should also become an antag.

If a Non-Antag uses it on an Antag. Should the Antag not kill them?

HoS, I've just devised the perfect way to deal with changelings and Lexia Black.

They have come up for me!

I forcefed love pots to 2 fellow xenobiologists when I was a traitor and we proceeded to flatten the station. People asked in OOC why they were attacking people when they didn't show up as antags. I explained I gave them love pots.

At the time I went by the wiki description of the thing and didn't really probe further. I assume it's mostly a coding issue that a message doesn't appear to explicitly state they change their directives.

No admin was online when we did the thing but the users accepted my explanation. I would like a more official clarification on the thing though.

To note, these pots are hard to come by. They come from crossbreeding a t4 slime 10 t3 slimes and even then you get only 1 pot.

Regardless of the route taken I would prefer this be handled by code.

If we don't want to enforce the relationship let's reflavor it.

If we do let's tie it to an antagonist role code-wise so it shows up for admins (doesn't necessarily need to be on end of round although that might help players understand what happened).

Correction: Players ahelped but no admin showed up, and considering there was bigger grief by people not even love potted we let it go.

Could we copy some stuff from the Valentine's Day antags?
