Rhialto Posted December 23, 2018 Report Share Posted December 23, 2018 I have been introducing Buddhist themes into my writings for Academagia: The Making of Mages. The adventure that I submitted (called “Wandering the Corridors”) is in six stages, each one based the player character’s using one of the six senses that Buddhist scriptures say that we have. Furthermore, one possible outcome of the adventure mentions flowers in the four colors of red, yellow, blue, and white – the four colors of the lotus flowers in Amitabha Buddha’s Pure Land of Sukhavati. I have also been writing adventures for the game’s sequel, which is still apparently being developed. These adventures include a foreign orphan and burglar who is shown to be (and describes herself as being) a devotee of Amitabha Buddha, and loves reciting Buddhist dharanis in her spare time. She may, depending upon the player’s choices during one adventure, give a definition of atheism that is related to my explanation of how I am a Buddhist and an atheist and a believer in YHVH’s divine power while not being a Jew or a Christian. I thought it to be appropriate to have Amitabha Buddha veneration within the adventure because Amitabha Buddha, within the scriptures that describe him, is said to be known and venerated upon many worlds. I mentioned this during an online discussion of Buddhism within video games, wherein I also talk about Planescape Torment. https://old.reddit.com/r/Buddhism/comments/a8nc3n/whats_a_buddhist_video_game_in_execution_themes/ecdspoq/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
