Thirty Helens agree.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2019 - 09:41 PM)

People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Turns out the basic figures in the transformers siege line are basically minicons, and my sister is back in the hospital for another psychotic break. It's been an emotional day, and it's not even 1 pm yet.

@  Pennpenn : (21 February 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Maybe, or maybe it'd be more like wood? Y'know, bashing each other with planks.

@  Ashley : (21 February 2019 - 12:23 AM)

Wouldn't pillow fights be like slapping each other with meat?

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Also, do Softmus Prime and Slumblebee engage in pillow fights?

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Feathertron?

@  MEDdMI : (20 February 2019 - 08:34 AM)

I wonder what Megatron would end up in that context?

@  Sabrblade : (19 February 2019 - 09:21 PM)

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

@  Paladin : (18 February 2019 - 06:56 PM)

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  MEDdMI : (16 February 2019 - 08:51 PM)

Nonsense. Everybody loves all my posts.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (16 February 2019 - 08:27 PM)

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...
