Subforums don't die. They wait. And plan.

@  Benbot : (28 April 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Are there any plans to delete or move dead subforums?

@  MEDdMI : (28 April 2017 - 05:49 AM)

instead of blackjack, we have dice rolls in the RP and there was an actual card game in another thread.

@  Bass X0 : (28 April 2017 - 05:19 AM)

They could start their own Beast Mayhem with Blackjack and Hookers.

@  MEDdMI : (28 April 2017 - 05:16 AM)

There's plenty of talented artists in Beast Mayhem! ....though we tend to draw things that can't be posted anyway. :doh

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:13 AM)

Gotta agree with Evac... TFW has a lot of cool, talented people, but they're overwhelmingly outnumbered by unbearable neckbeards

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM)

I do enjoy the TFW podcast. and that subforum's usually very civil. It's the best place to actually talk about TFers there :D also the Radicons forum is ok if you just like looking at kitbash pr0n

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 PM)

There's some cool people on the site, thankfully. It's just the morons tend to outnumber them... Which is generally the rule on most forums thanks to the GIFT.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:17 PM)

In all honesty, the better parts of the site are the non-TF parts.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

yeah, and their love of 3p is just...i don't get it.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

TFW can be... literal with the rules sometimes. Like, a discussion about favorite human characters gets LOCKED if you mention Agent Fowler because "all Prime discussion belongs in the RiD forums".

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Also, as far as TFW's No Politics goes...it's nice in theory but then you end up with the current IDW stories that lean HEAVILY into politics and religion. I've had more than a few lengthy posts exploring the parallels between the IDW Decepticon movement and various real world socialist movements deleted because it was technically "politics." So hug 'em. I really only visit there these days to poke around the podcast subforum.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:45 PM)

My person canon is that the Quintessons created Cybertron as a factory to make the TFers as mechs, but they became self aware and they revolted. then Cybertronian society began to develop and the events of the revolt became mythologised as the stories of the Knights of Cyberton, the Thirteen, etc...real events that became the basis for religion, essentially.

Timeout. Does it convert?

Fact: Transformers are mammals. Fact: The purpose of a Transformer is to flip out and kill people

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Transformers are alien space robots from space.]

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

Transformers believe they were created by <X>, others believe they were created by <Y> and/or <Z>. There are lots of theories, disagreements but ultimately nobody knows for sure.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Squid robits build machines. Machines decide they had enough of that and kicked the squid robits off the planet. Everything's pretty chill for a while until machines get mad for dumb reasons and break the planet. THE END

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 04:22 PM)

Primus created Cybertron and The Thirteen. Then later, the Quintessons come to the planet they call Seibertron and use Primus' power; the plasma energy chamber to forge military robots Destrons and consumer robots Cybertrons. The Cybertrons and Destrons rise up and drive the Quintessons away but are unable to live in peace with each other. And so the Cybertron population become the Autobot army and the Destrons become Decepticons, with the Autobots renaming their planet Cybertron. Far far later still, bacteria that was present on the asteroid Primus imprisoned himself within has evolved into organic life within Cybertron...

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:35 PM)

But aside from the ending Trent and Siph made for them at FunPub, the 3H Wreckers comics kinda sucked.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:34 PM)

That's what the 3H Wreckers comics kind of did, actually.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 April 2017 - 03:30 PM)

So, what? The maker of the makers kinda thing?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 02:55 PM)

My fanon is both the Quintesson and Primus origins. They're compatible.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I prefer the profile book/movie interpretation of the Quintessons, a race whose entire purpose is to capture and execute those who escape Unicron.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 02:03 PM)

I like the Quintesson origin partly because it's a twist on the robot revolution cliche, partly because of the irony of a people uniting against their own creators just to fall into endless civil war, and mostly because i just really like the Quintessons themselves.

@  Diecast : (27 April 2017 - 12:03 PM)

I preferred the Primus origin until it became the more common origin, fiction wise.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

Since the analogy to humans isn't perfect, it could also be interpreted as closer to "maternity ward."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I think the most unfortunately named Transformer in their society would probably be Hot Spot, which is like having a human named "Placenta."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Confusing, I bet.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:58 AM)

I wonder what everyday Transformer society is like where half the population are named after common objects and stuff...

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2017 - 10:53 AM)

I bet Gears hates this.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 AM)

Naturally occuring gears! (hey, if bugs can do it...)

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:00 AM)

They're both better than the Primus origin.

@  unluckiness : (27 April 2017 - 09:56 AM)

The Allspark sucks. I much prefer the quintessons origin.

@  Dracula : (27 April 2017 - 07:23 AM)

I hate the allspark! That's why it's been the only TF forum I've bothered with for almost 10 years!

@  Robowang : (27 April 2017 - 07:13 AM)

As much as I pick on us, that's a really big reason why I like it here too. Plus the traffic isn't so heavy that anything you post gets lost in five minutes.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:00 AM)

The Allspark is one of the first Transformers sites I've been to where there's no weird hero worship of the staff or two or three staffers who are weirdly aggressive about certain transformers related topics and never fail to show it. This is probably the first site in my near two decades in the fandom I can post and not feel I'm a few steps away from falling afoul of some unwritten rule that will cause people to pile on, so yay Allspark.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (27 April 2017 - 05:31 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 April 2017 - 05:17 AM)

So what? We're disciples of Primus and they're disciples of Unicron?

@  lastmaximal : (27 April 2017 - 04:26 AM)

I'm really not surprised.

@  Nevermore : (27 April 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Well, the users over on TFW in return accuse the Allspark of being an elitist clique that ostracizes everyone who doesn't act like they do (i.e. civil), whereas TFW is more welcoming to everyone regardless of their views.

@  Pennpenn : (27 April 2017 - 03:23 AM)

Hard G. I don't give a solitary shit what the creators call it, the first word in the acronym is "Graphical". I have no idea why they'd think any sane human could, would, or should pronounce it any other way.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 April 2017 - 03:13 AM)

I acknowledge what the creators say, but whether I remember to use their pronunciation or not is hit or miss. Heck, I think I usually think of it in my head as "gee-i-ef", in parallel to "JPG" and "PNG".

After some discussion with the staff, we've decided to make a thread like the TF Fan Character thread, except for those of us who have Superhero characters we'd like to share. There's are threads both here and in Iacon.

So, let's have 'em! Let's see what kind of superpowered forces the Allspark can muster!!

Well, I only have two, when you think about it...


Tomahawk (Nathan Nichols)
Age: 15? 16? 17?
Ethnicity: Native American (Navajo)

Bio: Nathan Nichols comes from a Navajo reservation in New Mexico. He's kind and gentle, but perhaps a bit too nice. He's extremely idealistic and soft-spoken, and has a problem fighting female villians, since he wouldn't hit a girl... Even if said girl was trying to kill destroy him.

Powers: Tomahawk wields a sacred, well, Tomahawk that's capable of changing shape. It has a few basic forms: "Air Cutter," where the blade arches backwards as it becomes more aerodynamic when thrown, and returns to the user, propelled by fire from the pipe-end of the Tomahawk head; "Giant's Hatchet," his preferred close-range attack that basically becomes a Big Freaking Axe; "Hammer Knuckle," where it becomes a brass knuckle that allows him to use uppercuts and such. Useful for stunning enemies; "Cloud Walker," where it becomes a flying board that propels itself by the pipe end becoming a magic rocket, which he can dismount with a floipkick to send it shooting towards enemies; "Aqua Drill," where the blade splits in two and becomes something of a mix between a propellor and a drill. it spins to move through earth or water; "Heavy Shield," where it becomes a really big shield that, when the bottom is slammed into the ground, can cause a shockwave; "Vulcan Bayonet," where the blade becomes a, well, bayonet with the pipe-end becoming a flamethrower; and "Strike Halberd," where the tomahawk becomes a polearm. Useful for attacking enemies from afar, and can add more punch to this attack by the pipe-end shooting a flame to propel itself.

Weaknesses: Aside from being too chivalrous to hit a girl, he's also deathly afraid of spiders. Also, there's the obvious weakness of being perfectly normal and defenseless without his tomahawk. (Yes, he started out as an expy of Animated Optimus Prime with the axe, but I gave him other forms of it to make up for it.)



Name: Snowbird (Yuki Matsuda)
Age: 15? 16? 17? Whatever the age Tomahawk is.
Ethnicity: Japanese human-snow spirit
Bio: Snowbird is a rather spunky and clever young Japanese girl. However, her father had fallen in love with a Japanese Snow-Spirit (yuki-onna), and thus has control over ice. She can breathe out icy vapor, and she can freeze things with a single touch. Despite this, she's hot-headed and rambunctious, and likes to flirt with Tomahawk. (Or Tommy, as she calls him. They end up together.)
Powers: I already explained them. She can also ghost through walls and turn invisible.
Weaknesses: Fire is a weakness that deprives her of her powers, and too much heat leaves her powerless. Also, if she falls in water, it'll freeze around her and she'll be stuck. She her skin can't make contact with anyone or she might end up freezing them.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

This was for an Aligned Continuity RP back during summer, and I don't know if the Knights of Cybertron were in Aligned.

<spoiler>Name: Knight Convoy

Age: 322

Gender:Male



Alignment: Was neutral for most of the war, but changed to the side of the Autobots after the Temple of the Thirteen was destroyed by a Con's Void Cannon

Alt Mode: A black swat van.



Weapons: You get 3 slots:
Bread and Butter: Large broadsword. While considered ceremonial, it is still well made and able to kill lightly armored foes.


BFG:None.

Gadget: A large shield, meant for blocking.

Other Skills: Knowledge of Mythology (Useless. Yaaaay.), disciple of Metallikato.

Bio: Long ago, before the war began, Knight Convoy was a warrior. Not that he had ever been in battle. In fact, he hadn't faced an opponent that had any intention other than training. That was because he was a Knight. The <link=http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Knights_of_Cybertron>Knights of Cybertron</link> were a religious order following the commandments of the First Thirteen, the Chosen of Primus. While trained to fight, he was drilled in the ways of peace and conflict prevention. When war broke out, the Knights secluded themselves even further, cutting off near all access to the outside world.

Convoy, as one of the younger knights, was brash and eager to join the war. Of course, the Knights did not take sides, and to them, life went on as near normal. But all that changed when a Decepticon Void Cannon struck the temple. With no exterior shields or armor, the entire building-and order-was destroyed in one shot. Convoy was one of the three survivors. After this, restraint was gone Convoy joined the Autobots, and made it a point to kill every Decepticon he came across. Near the end of the war, it was clear that he was dangerous. Convoy was eventually arrested and charged with multiple cases of second degree murder.

Though not found guilty, the charge took a toll on Convoy. He was, rather than rebuild Cybertron, sent onto a shuttle to hunt down the last of the Cons on Earth. Soon, he hopes to go back, and restore the Knights of Cybertron to the glory they deserve.
