it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

I'm not sure whether to read the gif as "help me convince Mana then" or something more sinister.

Well it's a little bit like I actually think you'd make a really good GM if that was okay with you and stuff alright there I said it

Huh. I guess that means buying this Dungeon World system thing, then. It looks like the player components are at least free, so those interested might want to take a look (regardless of who ends up GMing, this is apparently the system we're using.) I'd check into Wanderlust, too, but like Link said, it seems to be ungoogleable - I know Zamuel has access to it, though, so I can ask him about it. 

 

I have to admit that getting to build up this New Londokyork and set the story in motion is pretty appealing. Expect to see the Statue of Liberty built into a belfry repurposed into a microwave tower. That said, I've never GMd before, even a little bit.

 

Either way, it'd be good to toss out some ideas about your characters, and we can start looking over the character creation system and seeing what fits and how. If we're going to take the setting semi-seriously at all, don't start by listing powers - who is your character, what's his or her motivation, etc. That'll help whoever's GM to start working out objectives to start putting together the module as well. 


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?

Oh, I should clarify that I don't mean that kind of serious - I just mean that it'd be a little weird to have a character be Batman but also talk about working at Target. I kinda want to see what we're working with and what we might be able to spin together into some kind of story and setting.

I'm a broadsword lady from the frozen north ... I'm a Viknadian my Longcanoe ran aground off the coast of beachyhead and then I swam up the Niagara river ... I picked up the language (as best I could) along the way and heard this city was both the place to be and somewhere you didn't want to suddenly find yourself  >_> and since arriving like I said, Making my home in Central Sherwood ... all the trees remind me of home ... less snow though

Totally interested. I tend to prefer more freeform fighting, though my chars tend to be squishy when most other people have overpowered juggernauts. I've got a ton of chars I can use, though a couple jump up to the top of the list. Probably would recycle chars from my comic, they got their start in RPing.

Blink/Zinc: Would fit the bard and/or rogue class. A short, stocky man of mixed race (drow & dwarf) and unknown age, appears to be in his 30-40's. Enjoys playing mind games and messing with people, yet never seems to let anything bother him. A drifter who goes from place to place, never getting too close to anyone, feels more like an observer than a participant. A jack of all trades, he specializes in playing his lute and fighting with sai but is good at many basic things (cooking, survival). Probably not so great with technology. Dislikes people touching his bare skin and might have a slight complex about being short. Never seems to show his true emotions, always wears a slight smile. Can usually get out of fights with his sliver tongue but has no qualms about killing if needed.

EB: Would fit the fighter class. Purple werebunny due to genetic engeneering. Looks to be in his mid 20's but is closer to 18, he ages a bit quicker than an average human. Tall, pale, and lanky man with super soft fur/hair. Kind of a "farm boy"-not terribly educated. Blunt and honest to a fault, prefers manual labor to thinking. Cautiously trusts people, will always try to help. Hates being a werebunny and often gets confused for the Easter Bunny. Good with most animals but larger prey animals make him nervous. In human form, he can't stay in the sun too much without sunblock/protection as an albino rabbit was used in his engineering. Knows about the birds and bees but completely oblivious when it comes to love. Can fight with his fists and legs in werebunny form but dislikes doing too much damage and doesn't like hitting girls, either. Bad with technology. Naturally, he is a vegan but hates carrots.

Harue: Class unknown-bard or cleric perhaps? Kind of a comic relief. Average sized lady in her mid-20's. Very sweet and happy most of the time, almost annoyingly so. Might not say anything but wears her emotions on her sleeve. Just trying to survive, and wants to believe the best in people. Good at cheering people up and provding support, always puts others ahead of her. Is also blind in her right eye, which is covered by her hair. She is a horrible klutz and also horrible at anything home-ec oriented. Never wants to fight, she has some magical capability but no formal training so can't really do a whole lot. Not very confident in herself. Ok with technology but if she looks at it too long it'll probably explode. Nervous/disbelieving if anyone shows romantic interest.

Lethe: No class (rimshot). A modern day lady in her early 20's who somehow finds herself in this world. Average size, flat chested. Did she get here by magic or technology? She has no idea, she's just trying to make sense of the new world around her and possibly find her way home. Curious, intelligent, and cautious, she has the mind of a detective. She has a backpack from her time filled with average odds and ends that will run out-half roll of duct tape, bottled water, compass, band-aids, etc. Typically keeps to herself and prefers to observe. Has never gotten in a serious fight and never seen anything worse than roadkill in real life. She could die easily in this world. Has decent knowledge of survival skills and technology, but that is all related to her time, not the new one. Very skeptical about love. Also has slight arachnophobia.

Mwahahahahaaaa.... one of these should fit. Could play more than one if needed, or some as side/background characters?

Ha! Yes, I think any of those could fit. I'm most interested in EB and Harue, myself. Very promising. = )

 

Destron, no surprise there, but I truly look forward to seeing how she plays.

 

And yeah, Vi, I think preference would be to use invented names or slight alterations (like Patch,) partly because we do need to distinguish between characters and players in OOC conversation and partly because I think it frees you up to be a bit silly with it. That said, it hasn't posed any real problems in the Pony RP that two of the players have now named themselves after their characters, either.

Yes, with the G, as in, as Hecate put it, the kind for going on adventures as opposed to the kind for having sex.

So long as it works, I think we're using the Dungeon World system. So there's a base of rules, certainly. 

 

Part of a situation like the one you're describing would honestly come down to the design of the "module" and the GM's discretion in play. It'll certainly be possible, though likely not in your best interests, to kill another player character. I don't know how Dungeon World handles critical failures, but that situation sounds fairly unlikely to start with to me.

I figured PKing would be preventable in the first place. It's more someone opening a gate full of rabid mastodons while everyone is wandering around in a cave and getting stampeded to death because no one had any mastodon chow to distract them with.
