Geeez, I just read a story about a liberal satire Facebook page that would publish absolutely outlandish, ridiculous made-up conservative propaganda, stuff so absurd nobody with half a brain could take it seriously... and conservatives are taking it at face value.

Oh yeah, feeling feverish. What fun.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 November 2018 - 10:07 PM)

My father used to ask his boss that question. Then he STOPPED asking, and got used to twiddling his thumbs. Made things so much easier, and didn't actually change how his bosses thought of him.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:31 PM)

So of course you wait until the end of your shift like everyone else, THEN you walk up to the manager on duty and ask him what you're supposed to do during the requested overtime.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:30 PM)

Fun: The employer allows (paid) voluntary overtime, cannot backtrack on the permit, and before the regular end of your shift, you notice you're rapidly running out of work.

@  Paladin : (16 November 2018 - 12:34 PM)

settle a bet: is "drama queen" a gender-neutral description?

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 November 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Sounds like management is the same everywhere :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 08:12 PM)

My bosses are too busy trying to see if they can have their heads up their own asses while still being able to kiss the asses of everyone above them. It'd be amusing to watch if I wasn't one of the ones trying to get everything done to cover for it.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:05 PM)

He's living by the standard "bow to those below you; kick at those above you. You got more people below you than above you."

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Whenever we go on strike, he's there with us. He told me that this is the only completely legal way for him to show his own bosses the finger,

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Well, this guy has been getting flak from above, it's just that he doesn't care. He's doing what he thinks is right. He's easily the smartest of my superiors, and also the one with the biggest balls.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 05:24 PM)

Must be nice, having a boss that cares.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 November 2018 - 01:03 PM)

Indeed.

@  Echowarrior : (15 November 2018 - 11:58 AM)

That's a good superior.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:21 AM)

Arguing in my favor that I was working under sub-par conditions, there were problems with sudden halts of the conveyor and other issues that affected my productivity, and besides, why was this guy giving a feedback to one of HIS subordinates, wich was his job?

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Also, yesterday he stood up for me when a superior from the department I was sent to was giving me a productivity feedback.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

So this week all of my superiors save one guy are absent, and I'm not noticing a difference. Which says a lot about this guy.

@  Waspinator : (15 November 2018 - 03:28 AM)

So... what in the world is this?  

 

Planning and judging interest in a very special One-Off Halloween/Nightmare Night Adventure, staring the cast of STOMP. Very likely to be non-canon so as to allow for anything to happen, and not effect the main campaign. This will be a different set-up to the Main campaign, and shouldn't last more then a couple of weeks, hopefully ending by Nov 5th which will give two full weeks, as the IC Thread will go up on the 22nd. If this goes well, it might lead into doing future ideas now and then as side adventures that also will probably be non-canon. This isn't going to be a typical campaign, and isn't gonna use the anything beyond the base stats of the characters as this is likely isn't gonna involve combat of any kind, but will involve investigation and other basic dice rolling skills that doesn't require intimate knowledge system. 

 

So the basic gist of it is, that it's gonna be a sorta haunted house murder mystery, though I am trying to keep everything to about the level you'd find in a kids show. STOMP members past and present are invited to a Masquerade party, where a supposed artifact will be revealed and at the end of the night donated. During the night one of the Party goers end up dead and the artifact missing. STOMP needs to figure out what happened and recover the artifact before Dawn, while trying to survive the vengeful ghosts of the dead. It mostly takes element from Clue, both game and movie, some elements of Scooby Doo, and bits and pieces of other things like Rocky Horror and Masque of the Red Death.

 

Zam feels the Murder Mystery element could be a non-starter and might not be fitting to the setting, though several others have already shown interest enough for me to think this viable. It might be a bit more mature and dark for MLP, but I figure Halloween/Nightmare Night and a Non-Canon adventures is perfect for playing around with these themes and ideas in a hopefully fun way. So before I get further into the what will be happening, I want to know who all might be interested in attempting this experiment with me.

Gotta say I'm really psyched about this. It sounds like a lot of fun, even setting aside that it's always kinda fun to play Amber again. = ]

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

He's not wrong. I doesn't fit the MLP setting. But I think it can be stretched.

Clue is in fact a Hasbro property and they've been trying like heck to get a new movie going. So playing up those elements helps. It's like we'll be playing Clue but we lost the pieces so we're using MLP minis instead. And we lost the dice that come with it so we're breaking out our D&D dice. At this point it's starting to morph into a completely different game and we're not sure what we're doing anymore and frankly we're getting kinda delirious because it's three in the morning, but we don't care because it's Game Night and we're having fun.

Halloween tends to be a time where, least in my youth growing up, shows would kinda stretch themselves for the sake of telling a story they normally wouldn't, and that's kinda where a large part of the concept comes from. So while it might not be strictly Pony, I am still trying to keep things to stuff you'd see on a kids' show. There's gonna be some dark parts to it, particularly the event that kicks us off, but it should never get too dark.

Yeah, the "morph into a completely different game" is the hard part since that's exactly what this is and I'm making it whole cloth, and doing it on short notice... if I had this idea earlier in the month I might have had more time to get things together; so I'm not sure how concrete the whole thing will be, but I'm hoping its at least Fun. 

 

I got inspired the other night when listening to Legend of Hell House on Netflix as background noise and idly playing Clue on my phone... so... kinda easy to see how this all started to come togeather in my head, lol. 

 

Also, we might have some new players... two people I've been getting ideas from, have shown interest in wanting to try, so they may show up for this as well. Who knows if they'll stay afterwards, but hey some fresh blood for the forums..

Considering October's already over halfway over, a play-by-post Halloween mini-campaign would have to move quickly. An alternative option might be running a one-night-only game on Discord or something.

That and trying to get something going on Discord is like herding cats. 

 

Like I said, I plan for this to go about 2 weeks at most, which takes us past halloween, If it takes longer fine. This was last minute and I'm keeping it relatively simple.

Okay, so confirmed players so far:

 

Copper

Fnu

Caldwin

GSO

 

Potential players:

 

Atem

Lilly

 

Nonconfirmed:

 

Sunbeam

Patchy

Destron

Videomaster (Doubting it, but it's still open for him)

 

----

 

Quick Poll:

 

Ghosts Or "Zombies"? 

 

Zombies in this case would just be pale colored and ragged looking, a bit like the cookie zombies from the show. Could also do both I suppose...
