I'm upset I can't "Like" a shout...

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 February 2021 - 09:39 AM)

The US election? *rimshot*

@  Paladin : (28 February 2021 - 09:19 AM)

WHICH 2016 clown panic?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

Never understood the hype for the IT movies, too many floppy zombie chases, They're not in the least unsettling.

@  Maruten : (25 February 2021 - 06:00 PM)

It's better than the last one!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:30 AM)

The new Wizards of the Coast logo looks stupid

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:29 AM)

It's really rather shocking watching the Investor Day presentation and seeing how much Hasbro actually owns now.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 February 2021 - 10:26 AM)

If everyone had COMMON SENSE, then things would maybe go a little better-

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

This is quite possibly the most miserable i have ever felt.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

i'll be nice and not bypass the cupcake monkey, but COVID can *bleep* itself in the *bleeping* *bleeper* with a *bleeping* cactus.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 02:39 AM)

He only appeared the once in the US comics and got one follow up in the UK comic. He never suffered badass decay like Omega Supreme and the combiners.

@  Rycochet : (19 February 2021 - 05:15 PM)

Trypticon's debut issues in the marvel comic were the absolute best 'To sell a toy' comics of the book.

@  tigerhawk : (19 February 2021 - 03:04 AM)

Then the audience goes "This was a stealth Transformers film wannit!"

@  tigerhawk : (19 February 2021 - 03:03 AM)

Godzilla vs Trypticon, co written by Christina Hobson and Max Borenstein.

@  Bass X0 : (19 February 2021 - 01:36 AM)

I now want G1 Grimlock to transform into Mecha Godzilla.

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2021 - 04:23 PM)

I preferred Rush when Midway made it.

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2021 - 03:13 PM)

The best Rush comes from Canada.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 February 2021 - 02:54 PM)

In *other* wonderful and fantastic news, guess whose Kingdom Cheetor and Paleotrex FINALLY arrived today?

@  Bass X0 : (16 February 2021 - 03:07 PM)

yeah, its a good show. watch as much as you can.

@  tigerhawk : (16 February 2021 - 04:58 AM)

Goodnight Sweethearts turned out to be a gem, I only knew Nicholas Lyndhurst in Only Fools and Horses but never saw this show before.

@  Bass X0 : (15 February 2021 - 04:07 PM)

Then we got Ultra Magnus, Fortress Maximus, Dai Atlas, Megatron, Galvatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Banzai-Tron in Alternity...

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2021 - 12:03 PM)

They got that rescue bot grimlock that turns into a motorcycle. That's... pretty neat...

@  Otaku : (15 February 2021 - 11:35 AM)

Just to make Grimlock feel more "wrong", they even highlight how his character just seems ill-suited for a sports car alternate mode in his own backstory.  Hindsight is 20/20, so I now wish they'd made a T-rex that transformed into a sportscar.  Still probably would have been as much or more of a pain to transform, but at least it'd feel more like Grimlock. :D

After driving north a couple of miles outside of Besseltrade and getting armored up, Friday asked the fateful question, "Where now?"

Having retracted his Cowl for the moment, Kage rubbed his chin with a gauntleted hand.


"Well, our primary target still remains the fast relocating forces of YPNR. However, is it worth risking the use of one of Ms. Greys tracer spell pages now, so that we can at least guesstimate Moscareina/Patchs location, in relation to the known Core-based fallback YPNR base?


Speaking of locations, how effective will your map system be out here Friday?"

Friday said, "For this area, I have have it mapped for a few miles since we've been out here. I'm limited by what I've seen and what networks are nearby. I relay information with Oracle but in the end, it just means we have the same information and gaps in that information. For instance, neither of us has a map of the Underceiling."

"I figured as much. Well then, this journey will be as much discovering what's out here as it is anything else. Hmm. When we get back to the OPD, remind me about the Underceiling Friday. I wouldn't mind taking part in a potential exploration of what's down there. Although there is the wrinkle of Patthew Hughes and his not-exactly-legal trading going on down there. Still, the existence of an entirely upside down, mostly intact city that could stretch the entirety of the OPD, if not further...




Anyway, the tracer pages. Do we risk using one now. Or do we focus on YPNR for now.




Kage knew, deep down, that he would risk a page to begin there search for Patch. However, he would not push for that choice.

"I-I don't know. It's such a tough decision. What does everyone else think?" Friday asked, as she turned to the rest of the group.

"Let's use one of the magic pages. Let's not fall into the trap of never using our magic trinkets because we might need them later."


"That's our friend out there. We need to find her."

As one of the pages was lit, the letters slowly lit up. A crude arrow made intense flames hovered above the page as the paper itself also floated in the air. The direction was north-northwest but...was also slightly pointed upward. As the remnants of the paper burned and the flaming arrow began to dim, the group now had a course to follow. Ominous clouds slowly began to gather as uncertainty loomed.

The hospital bed Harue had been in was empty. The nurses chatted and laughed among themselves, trading horror stories of one visit or another of their recurring guest.


The apartment Harue had stayed in was also empty. The apartment was in worse condition, scorch marks on the walls and ceilings, broken dish fragments in the trash. On the kitchen counter was an envelope with a handful of Laics, along with a hand written story addressed to “The Landlord’s Boss’s boss’s boss’s boss.”


Once upon a time there was a brave Soldier who served in a large Kingdom. He was strong and handsome like no other. The Kingdom was under constant threat from the Lord of Chaos, whom constantly attacked the Kingdom with fire-breathing dragons, goblins whom caused mischief, and other monsters. The Soldier did his duty and defeated many a monster, yet remained relatively unknown save to the ladies of the Kingdom, who fawned upon him.


One day, the Soldier came upon an injured Goblin. The Goblin had been wounded by some townsfolk, and the Soldier took pity upon it and treated its wounds. So great was the Soldier’s compassion that he offered to take the Goblin in. The Goblin was confused.

“Chaos is my master,” it said, “I can’t help but cause destruction in my wake.”
The Soldier smiled a dazzling smile. “Then I will take care of you and keep Chaos at bay.”
The Goblin decided to take the Soldier’s offer, and so returned with him to his quarters.

Despite the Soldier’s kindness and the Goblin’s determination to not cause trouble, trouble followed the Goblin everywhere. Bookcases falling over, carriages losing control, fireworks setting off, you name it. Time and time again the Soldier would protect the Goblin, clean up after it, and calm the nerves of the townsfolk.


And so it was for many cycles of the moon, and eventually the Soldier began to tire of the constant vigilance that caring for the Goblin required. The Goblin also tired of the promises that Chaos would be defeated, and so nothing ever changed. One day, the frustration grew between them and they fought. The Soldier left the Goblin in his quarters and went for a walk to clear his head.

And then, Chaos struck again, sending out a mighty dragon. It had even devoured one of the townspeople. The Soldier, in his heroic manner, charged into the great fire eater’s belly.


And he was never heard from again.


The Kingdom’s other soldiers eventually defeated the dragon and cut its belly, finding the remains of a body inside. Some said it was the Soldier. Others said it was the townsperson who got devoured.
For its part, the Goblin decided to find out what had happened to the Soldier. Whether the Soldier was truly gone, had escaped to an island and was living it up with beautiful women, either way the Goblin wanted to know.


And Chaos follows the Goblin still, to this very day.
