I’m not sure how to put this one. I’m always the only one who can remember how to spell paymanager. I’m sure there are more than a few other reasons why I’m not even sure what it means and that’s alright.
Paymanager is a website that helps you manage your finances. But in case you’re curious, its also a website that has a “pay-by-mail” service. In case you’re also curious, one of its founders is a man named David Gellman. Gellman founded Paymanager in 2008 and was a founding board member of the company until his death in 2014.
Gellman’s relationship with paymanager is, in my opinion, the most interesting in the game. Paymanager is a site that’s more about finance than it is about gaming and the idea behind it is that it’s the “best way to pay rent while taking care of your finances.” This may seem weird, but paymanager really cares about how you spend your money and it has a “pay for what you use” policy.
Gellman’s relationship with Paymanager is interesting. In fact, his relationship with Paymanager is the most interesting thing in Deathloop because it involves death. Gellman is a player who is extremely loyal to paymanager and has not only become a paid member, but has become a paid member in the most recent development. This makes him feel like he is part of the company despite his lack of a corporate position and his ties to Gellman.
The company pays a set amount for a certain amount of time, and a portion of that amount is paid out as interest when you play. So Gellman is essentially “loyal” to Paymanager because he has been paying him a fee for a certain amount of time, and the company makes him feel like he has “earned” it. There are a few interesting aspects of this that I haven’t seen discussed.
The first, and most obvious is that this feels like paymanager is like a personal loyalty. You are paying him to do a job for the reasons he gives you. But he doesn’t have a personal relationship with the company. Instead, he is a pawn in the game. He is a player and he wants to play at the highest levels he can.
In other words, paymanager is not paying him because he is personally loyal to the company, but because he has a duty to pay his own people. The second interesting aspect is that this reminds me of the classic “I told you so” meme. Every time you hear that you have been lied to, or you have taken advantage of something, you say to yourself, “I told you so.” Paymanager is like this.
This is not the first job for paymanager where he has used his position as a pawn to get what he wants. He has a personal grudge against one of the company’s founders, which he has used to blackmail him into giving him a position. It is also possible that paymanager is the pawn in a bigger game. Paymanager is the company’s “hired gun”. The game is a game of power and control.
You can play with paymanager the same way you play with any other pawn in a chess game. Paymanager is a pawn, and it will always end up being a pawn. You can always play with paymanager, but you must always play with paymanager. He will always be your pawn. In chess, the pawn is the king. In paymanager, the pawn is the boss.
It could be that paymanager is the pawn that’s in a bigger game, the pawn that’s in a bigger chess game. Paymanager is more than just a pawn. The game is a chess game, but it’s also a game of power and control. The game is a game of chess because you are controlling the pawn. You are controlling how it moves, what it does, and how it acts.
