@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

Some other links. I waffled on what thread would be best to post this in or if I should have even posted it. I'm looking to see how it does since it looks like it's actually trying to be an MLP product.

Are you thinking about switching STOMP over to this system if it looks viable enough? It wouldn't be the first time we've rebuilt our character sheets.

I think it would be far too big of a switch this deep into the game. It would be a far greater paradigm shift between systems. However, I might borrow ideas from it since I already sometimes borrow ideas from other RPGs. I might also borrow a story arc if I need filler but I doubt that.

I might rebuild the structure of the character sheets, though. They've got a ton of unneeded white space. Granted, I think there would be resistance if I alter font sizes.

One place (ICv2?) had some preview images but I can't remember where. It's a d6 system that seems to have similarities to things like the FATE. Also seemed to have a more distinct earth pony/unicorn/pegasus line.

Cannot wait to get my hands on this, and again I say that as an almost entirely lapsed fan. From what little we've seen I think these dudes are trying hard to do right by this franchise, and this product will be a magnificent gift to many people. I just feel like this a fandom that deserves a good (official) RPG. I can't really articulate it but it just seems like a perfect fit.

Yeah, I feel like the unofficial tabletop is most likely to get people who are interested in RPs to play a Pony one. The official one seems likely to mostly get people who like Pony into playing an RP. Which is really very cool.

Roan has some good ideas, but is seriously lacking in the polish that Hasbro will hopefully insist on for the official game.  (Parts of Roan read like they were written by someone for whom English was not their first language, and editing is indifferent at best.)

So, system where better attribute or skill means bigger die.  I vaguely remember playing a pulp adventure game using such a system (and tokens) back around 2001, wonder if there's a direct connection?

Things that aren't d20 tend to. Savage Worlds does, but that launched in 2003.

Edit: To my limited understanding of the systems, the apparently narrative approach to skills and weaknesses looks more FATE than Savage Worlds, but it's hard to guess, since the biggest difference is how you get them.

Second edit: I love that the CSes use pony bases and have kids draw on the bits. It's almost exactly like the RP here, where most of our characters' first art came from the Pony Creator, just ... the analog version.
