A Wild Hellgate Let's Play Appears!
« on: Sep 05, 2021; 09:00 AM »
Hello Darlings~
 
My name is Lilyana, and I've been wanting to make Let's Plays, because I don't know of any big name Let's Players who are trans, and I want to fill that niche. Finally, I've managed to set my schedule so that I can do so, and I'm very excited to make more~
 
Further niche, my first series, the first episode of which has literally gone up just yesterday, Hellgate: London! I wasn't sure if this forum still existed whenever I recorded my first ep, but I'm glad to see it still exists~
 
So, if you're interested, come step through the Hellgate and watch a cute trans demon talk shit on devils~


And either way, all of you matter so don't forget to hydrate, masticate, and medicate~

There's nothing special being a trans. If you want to do a let's play then do a let's play, but advertising it by you being a trans is just silly. Being trans does not make you more interesting, it does not make you a better content creator and it does not make you a better gamer...or even make you a better as a person. Imagine every male or female started advertising their content by saying HELLO EVERYONE I AM GIRL OR I AM A GUY and i play video games! It would be equally as stupid and obnoxious.

You can't have a nightmare if you never dream.

Correct! However, representation is very important, and I don't know of any big-name trans Let's Players, so I decided to fill that niche~
 
That said, I am incredibly gay and flamboyant so it only made sense to make that part of my brand, darling~

It felt less arrogant than 'beautiful' or 'cute' or what have you. 😏 "The Beautiful Fiendling", whilst true, just sounds so conceited as a brand name.

Welcome aboard :)

Thank you for providing content for this old gem of a game. I hope your niche finds the appeal you're hoping for, especially since you've taken up the Steam version. Though I suppose more people will want to see the new endgame content than scoff at Steam's/Global's overall... situation.

Now, my apologies for momentarily derailing the thread, but I'd like to publicly respond to an issue that has emerged from this brief conversation. I'm doing so for visibility, and the views expressed here are solely my own as a moderator.
Sepheroth's post was reported for transphobia. This I find to not be the case; Sepheroth shared his view that being trans is not a distinguishing trait worth branding content around. He worded it strongly, yes, but discussed the identity's application, not it or the person themselves. Moreover, the convo remained brief and civil. TheTransFiendling's response denoted no offense, nor did they (to my knowledge) reach out to moderators over perceived offense.
Should abuse among forum members occur, due to transphobia or otherwise, moderators will intervene to the best of our ability. Here, I only see a (presumably) ideological disagreement on content branding.

...which, to conclude, thank you both for handling in a civil manner. It was great to see people disagree on such sensitive topics without making it personal.
All the best to you both.

The above guides may be obsolete for vanilla SP, but they may still hold true for the 2018 Steam version.

Well of course darling, I'd be a poor emissary for fiends if I couldn't handle things civilly. More seriously, I'm just not one to start fights if it's not needed, and it wouldn't do me any good to pick a fight with someone as big as Seferoth is in the community.

So far your well wishes are working well, as I've done not poorly, apparently I've been getting way more view than average for new channels, and that's really encouraging.

Speaking of WHICH!

My next few episodes are out! Also apologies it's been ages since I've used forums so I'm relearning how to format things
