instead of blackjack, we have dice rolls in the RP and there was an actual card game in another thread.

They could start their own Beast Mayhem with Blackjack and Hookers.

@  MEDdMI : (28 April 2017 - 05:16 AM)

There's plenty of talented artists in Beast Mayhem! ....though we tend to draw things that can't be posted anyway. :doh

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:13 AM)

Gotta agree with Evac... TFW has a lot of cool, talented people, but they're overwhelmingly outnumbered by unbearable neckbeards

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM)

I do enjoy the TFW podcast. and that subforum's usually very civil. It's the best place to actually talk about TFers there :D also the Radicons forum is ok if you just like looking at kitbash pr0n

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 PM)

There's some cool people on the site, thankfully. It's just the morons tend to outnumber them... Which is generally the rule on most forums thanks to the GIFT.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:17 PM)

In all honesty, the better parts of the site are the non-TF parts.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

yeah, and their love of 3p is just...i don't get it.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

TFW can be... literal with the rules sometimes. Like, a discussion about favorite human characters gets LOCKED if you mention Agent Fowler because "all Prime discussion belongs in the RiD forums".

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Also, as far as TFW's No Politics goes...it's nice in theory but then you end up with the current IDW stories that lean HEAVILY into politics and religion. I've had more than a few lengthy posts exploring the parallels between the IDW Decepticon movement and various real world socialist movements deleted because it was technically "politics." So hug 'em. I really only visit there these days to poke around the podcast subforum.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:45 PM)

My person canon is that the Quintessons created Cybertron as a factory to make the TFers as mechs, but they became self aware and they revolted. then Cybertronian society began to develop and the events of the revolt became mythologised as the stories of the Knights of Cyberton, the Thirteen, etc...real events that became the basis for religion, essentially.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 09:34 PM)

Timeout. Does it convert?

@  Nutjob R/T : (27 April 2017 - 09:29 PM)

Fact: Transformers are mammals. Fact: The purpose of a Transformer is to flip out and kill people

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Transformers are alien space robots from space.]

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

Transformers believe they were created by <X>, others believe they were created by <Y> and/or <Z>. There are lots of theories, disagreements but ultimately nobody knows for sure.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Squid robits build machines. Machines decide they had enough of that and kicked the squid robits off the planet. Everything's pretty chill for a while until machines get mad for dumb reasons and break the planet. THE END

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 04:22 PM)

Primus created Cybertron and The Thirteen. Then later, the Quintessons come to the planet they call Seibertron and use Primus' power; the plasma energy chamber to forge military robots Destrons and consumer robots Cybertrons. The Cybertrons and Destrons rise up and drive the Quintessons away but are unable to live in peace with each other. And so the Cybertron population become the Autobot army and the Destrons become Decepticons, with the Autobots renaming their planet Cybertron. Far far later still, bacteria that was present on the asteroid Primus imprisoned himself within has evolved into organic life within Cybertron...

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:35 PM)

But aside from the ending Trent and Siph made for them at FunPub, the 3H Wreckers comics kinda sucked.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:34 PM)

That's what the 3H Wreckers comics kind of did, actually.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 April 2017 - 03:30 PM)

So, what? The maker of the makers kinda thing?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 02:55 PM)

My fanon is both the Quintesson and Primus origins. They're compatible.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I prefer the profile book/movie interpretation of the Quintessons, a race whose entire purpose is to capture and execute those who escape Unicron.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 02:03 PM)

I like the Quintesson origin partly because it's a twist on the robot revolution cliche, partly because of the irony of a people uniting against their own creators just to fall into endless civil war, and mostly because i just really like the Quintessons themselves.

@  Diecast : (27 April 2017 - 12:03 PM)

I preferred the Primus origin until it became the more common origin, fiction wise.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

Since the analogy to humans isn't perfect, it could also be interpreted as closer to "maternity ward."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I think the most unfortunately named Transformer in their society would probably be Hot Spot, which is like having a human named "Placenta."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Confusing, I bet.

I believe they might've shown up in one of the Japanese Kre-O comics, and thus will at some point have (Kre-O) pages too.

So, this is more for Abates than anyone else... Are we adding continuity designators to every page now or something?

 

I'm assuming I'm missing some other reason why Gra and Ida were called out with (Prime) continuity identifiers?

Gra and Ida have non-Prime Kre-O counterparts.

"The Molecule Immobilizer"

 

(PREMISE)

 

Wheeljack is working on a device which can freeze a

 

molecule's action, literally stopping a moving object in its
 
tracks, leaving it immobile. Through the spying of Soundwave
 
and Reflector, the Decepticons are well aware of this
 
development.
 

The Autobots take the gun out into the forest for a test.

 
Wheeljack aims it at a tree and the tree becomes immobile. Spike
 
tries to break a leaf off and can't. The air molecules of the
 
surface of the tree have been frozen from motion, changing the
 
substance of the tree into one as hard as rock. Spike wants to
 
know what it would be like to be immobile, but Wheeljack tells
 
him it would be fatal to a human since it stops the flow of blood
 
to the brain. Suddenly, the tree comes back to life. It seems
 
the effect is only temporary.
 

Ironhide, who is supposed to be standing guard, has become

 
interested in the experiments and all at once, the Autobots are
 
overrun by the Decepticons. Several Autobots are seriously
 
damaged and the Decepticons get away with the molecule gun.
 

Back at Autobot headquarters, Ironhide takes full blame for

 
the attack and thinking he has become too old to be useful
 
anymore, retires himself from active service, much to Prime's

Checking my BW Omnibus, the first mentioning of the planet's name in the Sourcebook that I can find is under Galvatron's "Weapons/Abilities" section:

 

Showing uncanny prescience, Galvatron was one of the very first 'new' Cybertronains to adopt a beast mode. He chose a species of dragon from the planet Gaea, largely because of its fearsome reputation as a hunter. In this mode, Galvatron possesses a system for ingesting base metals and turning them into a searing molten jet, which could be spat at enemies. Also derived from Gaea's datafiles, his vehicular mode was a drill tank, with an explosive projectile bit. In Robot Mode, Galvatron utilized a claw/jaw ballistic weapon. His preferences was to seize his victim and execute them at close range.

 

And there's also the Glossary entry for the planet itself in the very back of the book:

 

Gaea:

A planet located in sector C-16 of Cybertronian space, Gaea possessed an unusually high amount of Angolmois energy and thus attracted the attention of would-be despot, Galvatron. Gaea is a very Earth-like planet filled with forests, swamps, and wide areas of frozen tundra. While animals and nature rule this world, the Maximals discovered scattered pieces of technology on the planet, indicating that at one time the world had been inhabited by a technologically advanced race. Gaea has two moons, one of which served as an observation post for Celestial observers Artemis and Moon.

While normally I wouldn't be so quick to trust other sources over on-screen text, we're talking about an English word written by non-English speakers. There's a LOT of animation errors out there that are just some poor animator trying to write a street sign in letters they don't know.

 

"Gaea" and "Gaia" are both accepted spellings, although "Gaea" is vastly more common. Still though, the most likely thing is that someone tried to spell it and got it wrong (or "wrong" in this instance).

That's not actually at issue here; in this particular instance, we're stuck with the "Gaea" spelling because that's how it appeared in an English-language work (i.e. the Sourcebook), which we've also defaulted to for characters (Lio Convoy over Leo Prime, most famously, but also Autocrasher over Autocrusher).
 

"Gaea" and "Gaia" are both accepted spellings, although "Gaea" is vastly more common.

The Wikipedia article for the goddess is also at Gaia, but I don't know how diagnostic that is.
