@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

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...

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~
