@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

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.

Have I ever told you guys about how our Neutral Good Cleric had his alignment changed by the DM to Chaotic Neutral because he kept doing stupid shit?


D&D has to report to shareholders. Pathfinder only has to impress its neckbeards.

How? What happened?

i was playing a troll mage and i had spent the cash on an item that was basically a Rolodex of elemental beings. so i summoned an elder fire elemental and let him go to town.  our parties other mage called me an idiot for summoning an unbound elemental and summoned a giant water elemental. kaiju fights ensued while we tried to steal our target. 

 

 

In our group, someone summoned a dragon far beyond his ability to control... in his apartment. And ended up getting KO'd for days.

 

Somehow our planning sessions always turn out far more dangerous than the actual missions.

Not one of the great dragons, of course, just a little spirit thing that was way over our level. Not that it really mattered what anyone else's level was, he did it alone and no one knew anything about it until he woke up and told us. 

 

The team also left me to sleep through one of the runs entirely once. It was nice. Cozy. I pretended to have been there and got paid anyway. 

 

Meanwhile the other, somewhat more efficient campaign group is seducing great dragons and pissing off Lofwyr himself.

 

But yeah it's a valid point that there really is a much higher threat of mortality so far outside of actual runs. Maybe we should like, break into a random Aztech warehouse and do our planning from there next time. So it's safer.

It transforms DMs into a quivering pile of terror and rage at just how far players will go to avoid doing what they're actually supposed to be doing. That counts!

I named my Lynx drone HB for Howlback. That was kind of a Transformers connection. 

 

Someone wanted to name the truck a Transformers name early on but I shot that down. 

 

So Siege Optimus is pretty dope, yeah?

Shadowrun seems like one of the more interesting subjects I haven't delved too deeply into. From what little I've seen and heard of there's a strong sense of identity in how the world works, whether that's despite or because of its derivativeness.

Personally I prefer the way Shin Megami Tensei does it because it brings in stuff from all ancient myths and legends instead of being weirdly focused on a 20th century fantasy novel. Too bad there isn't a TTRPG based on it.

Yeah, I'm in it for the Gibson and not the Tolkien myself. My character is a rigger (drone operator) and my backup character is a decker (hacker). Magic is a thing that happens around sometimes that neither character has much interest or any real knowledge in. And since it's a furry group and 70% of us are surge mutants, a lot of the human-elf-orc stuff is relatively low key, because those are just different sizes and demeanors that normal acceptable people come in and we're largely not.

Like, I'm fine with mixing fantasy and cyberpunk, I just find it weird how most of Shadowrun's fantasy elements are based on LOTR specifically.

They're not really. Shadowrun's stock fantasy races are mainly mutated humans and descendants of humans unlike Tolkien's (and probably the more conventional) idea of separate origins.

Even with things like the immortal elves, I'm not sure if there's much of anything that's more "specifically LOTR" than most fantasy that started at about the same time period as Shadowrun.

But as for ending up with a similar selection, I have to assume it's just the fact that D&D uses a lot of Tolkien-associated parts and Shadowrun was marketing to D&D players, since at one time all tabletop players were D&D players, so it used bits they were familiar with.

 

This really is consuming the TF thread, think I'm going to split.

To me, the thing that makes a fantasy setting feel like it's drawing on the Tolkien-influenced pool isn't so much any one element as it is the way they come as a set. If there are orcs, there are probably snooty elves and likely some halflings somewhere around. But I also have to recognize that the way Western fantasy got aligned around Tolkien expectations isn't really any different from how space sci-fi has tended to borrow the backbone of the world of Star Trek as its starting point to build from, this similar suite of devices and commonplaces. It nonetheless always bugs me a little. I get that there's a benefit to having a shared set of expectations about the world we can jump past to get into the good stuff, but it means that Western-oriented magical worlds have a tendency to all have a very similar flavor.

 

If I was going to introduce magic into a cyberpunk setting myself, I don't think that's how I'd want to go about it. And I really get the sense it was more than anything an effort to offer new players some of the trappings they were familiar with from D&D specifically.
