Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

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~
