I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

Okay not stupid, but a catchall for the idea that started in my thread.
 
I know the idea of a RPG thread like the one that's in Allsparkle was discussed and there was some interest (including from myself!) and wanted to see how much interest there was - and some ideas.
 
So, ideas? Settings? Rules? Etc.
 
I definitely think if we do it there needs to be a GM, of sorts - so also if anyone wants to throw their hat into the ring for that we could start figuring out some structure (I know Mayhem is to structure as oil is to water) but if it's all going to be self-contained in one thread there probably should be some level of order.

Reposting my suggestion for the setting: post-apocalyptic urban fantasy.

 

Like a bombed-out city in the middle of nowhere, all sorts of interesting sources for strange occurrences - mutations caused by lingering radiation, ancient magic, advanced tech.

It is a good setting, and easily explains most people's unique characters. I think EES called it New Londokyork, which is hilarious. I could see an 'official' name being made from big city names, cause no one can remember what city it actually was - but everyone simply calls it the city of Mayhem or something as a title.

Agreed. A megacity like that could allow for all kinds of weird and warped escapades.

You could pick anything from steampunk battles. Ancient mech being used for conquest. Magical knights, magical girls. Even a sortof futuristic Fate type story

As for a GM, i know i couldn't do it. The closest i've come to RP'ing is the recent Vampire/Wolf Horde thing that had Caldwin change his name. I've got plenty of (hopefully good' ideas, but no ability to structure a storyline or make the rules.

The best i got is are basic ideas for my GSO character which i'll repost here.

Another question might be, how balanced and limited would you want your abilities to be?

Finally got an answer for this question.
Since GSO is basically Batman, most of my abilities would be martial arts, tech, stealth and detective based. Although i do have three special powers that i'd have.
A Katana thats either a high frequency blade or a Purple Lightsaber.
The use of my Mayhem Shadows powers to travel anywhere via shadows.
A special attack that works similar to a Blindside attack from Star Ocean Last Hope. I.e. if i can pull it off, i get to cause major damage to my oppent while his defences are down.
I generally look like the Play Arts Kai Variant Batman that i mostly use for my avatar. So if a Mayhem RP ever does happen, i'd look as close to this as i can get.

I think our GM would have to be a very knowledgeable sort about the game design, and would also have to be willing to deal with the task of keeping people reined in so that everything doesn't get unbalanced - which would require someone who doesn't mind being a bit of a prick when necessary.

 

I mean, I know who comes to mind there, but...

Sounds like what you'd want to use is Apocalypse World


Great, and here I was hoping to have just one month where I don't have to face down the embodiment of entropy and terror.

Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

The people I'd think to ask first would be Link or Caboose, but they're both pretty judicious with their time commitments and normally kinda swamped. Can't help thinking that I'd actually join the RP if you could drag Mana into doing it, though~
