DRAGON HALF!

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 09:00 PM)

Xellos...? *looks at avatar pic* speaking of old anime... DRAGON SLAVE!!!

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

@  Benbot : (22 May 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I haven't been this excited about a new MP since the Datsuns! He looks amazing

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I love the little human figures with the MP line. Is it just young Spike, Future Spike, and Daniel so far?

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:00 AM)

And it comes with Chip Chase! I will order just for that! Holy crap!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 10:55 AM)

Whoo! Masterpiece Sunstreaker!

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:40 AM)

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:23 AM)

I had two ZX Spectrum games on cartridge. Played 'em loads as it beat having to wait ten minutes for unreliable tape loading...

@  Rycochet : (22 May 2017 - 09:25 AM)

Super Bootspork!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 08:45 AM)

I remember doing the same for my ZX Spectrum.

@  DeltaSeeker : (22 May 2017 - 08:40 AM)

I remember loading games on my Vic20 from an audio tape.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 08:37 AM)

anyone remember "Chex Quest?"

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I never played those. I had, like, two-color bootleg files of Donkey Kong and stuff like that with 50 games on a disk.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:11 AM)

not pure text games, but you still had to use text input to do stuff. "PICK UP flask", etc

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:05 AM)

I think those were the old King's Quest/Space Quest ones

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:02 AM)

I remember floppy disk games! Never gamed enough to own one that was more than a disk, though.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:01 AM)

I remember booting things from DOS, and games that were like 10 floppy disks big.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

Oh man, the days of Realplayer and AIM and man, I can't believe how long ago that was.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2017 - 01:00 AM)

ugh, RealMedia was pretty awful. RealPlayer was so bloated and buggy, I tried to avoid it

@  siccoyote : (22 May 2017 - 12:17 AM)

I remember downloading Realmedia episodes of Beast Wars Season 3, days after they were shown in Americ, but the quality was terrible and the guy who did it wasted half of a stereo audio track because he recorded it in mono. Took many hours to download

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 May 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Yeah, I remember those days. I had a bunch of Quicktime clips from Beasties/Beast Wars and Reboot, most of which I had to leave the computer on overnight to get, lol

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 09:49 PM)

I remember when it took 3 hours to download a 240p, 2.5 minute movie trailer

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

and there weren't any rocks yet, they were all space dust

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

I remember when there was no internet

@  Telly : (21 May 2017 - 08:55 PM)

dont remember what it was called, but i had an internet answering machine software back in the day. turn it on when i was online and i wouldnt miss a call. would leave it off if i didnt want to be bothered though lol

@  Noideaforaname : (21 May 2017 - 08:46 PM)

Remember when it was either the phone OR internet? Remember when photos had to be developed? And if someone decided to take pictures of their eye you couldn't tell until you got the film back?

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 06:02 PM)

You're making us old farts feel old!

@  Foffy : (21 May 2017 - 05:20 PM)

Not me! I couldn't have known that in 1991! I wasn't even born yet!

@  Bass X0 : (21 May 2017 - 01:03 PM)

You only just realised? Everybody else has known that since 1991.

@  unluckiness : (21 May 2017 - 10:34 AM)

Holy jeez, Guile's theme does go with anything.

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2017 - 04:34 AM)

The "humans as processors" bit was also used in season 2 of Dollhouse.

@  Pennpenn : (20 May 2017 - 04:27 AM)

I just remembered, I wonder if the scene in Thor 2 with the kids showing the abandoned building with glitchy reality was inspired by the Animatrix short that had the same concept (but could handle it more interestingly)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:59 AM)

That is nonsense. Also, some men in black suits and sunglasses will be arriving at your doorstep shortly. Please cooperate and it will go much easier for you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (20 May 2017 - 03:42 AM)

It's not bull, the elite are using the 90% through wifi for their Androcide agenda. Learn the undisprovable truth.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:26 AM)

I think there was an early draft where the machines were using humans as processors with the whole "only use 10% of their brains" bull.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 May 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Wasn't there an early draft where they weren't using humans for that?

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:26 PM)

Yeah, makes the Matrix seem more like a nature reserve than a source of power, and I get the feeling the whole "humans as a source of power" was done pretty much to justify the machines keeping humans around at all without making the machines seem sympathetic.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:23 PM)

But after watching The Second Renaissance, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the machines still felt some lingering moral imperative to allow the human survivors of the war some kind of life rather than committing genocide. They did everything in their power to avoid the war in the first place

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:21 PM)

It seems like reverting to solar power would be infinitely preferable to having to maintain The Matrix and everyone hooked into it, and all the associated hardware

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:18 PM)

Although I think I remember hearing somewhere that the "clouds" darkening the sky are actually swarms of constantly-muliplying nanomachines? No idea if that's canon or not, but if it is it seems like that'd be something the machines themselves could figure out how to undo if they really wanted to

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:16 PM)

I dunno, for all their technical achievements those humans seemed just as shortsighted as in the present. And they were desperate by the time that was done, so it wouldn't surprise me if they just thought "ah, we'll figure out how to undo it later"

You could always have the "ghost" possess someone in the party or an NPC and bump them with the party out of gratitude (or a need to figure out the rest of their pre-life). I'm honestly unfamiliar enough with 3.5/PF to not have much mechanical advice.

Alternatively, appeal to the Raven Queen (or other death/magic deity) to restore the sorcerer to some semblance of life.

There's the ghost-specific classes in the Ghostwalk setting book, which was the last 3.0 book and had an official conversion guide online, but I don't know if those would actually be more useful than just applying the ghost template and letting him carry the staff, since I don't have the book.

So, I just bought a 4E starter set and found a character sheet maker. Right now I've got four characters - a 22-year-old Human Knight named Clarent, a 24-year-old Half-Elf Thief named Sa'har, a 23-year-old Razorclaw Shifter Ranger (Beastmaster build) named Kaya, and a very, very old Warforged Monk named Ferrus Pax. Until I found a group, I'm mostly gonna use them to write my own stories, but when I find a group - any suggestions on stat distributions/feats/abilities/weapons to them, or class changes if the need arises?

Lemme take a looksie.
Well, first off, you'll need a Leader (Healer) for the party. I'm personally a huge fan of the Artificer class (from Eberron Player's Guide), or the old reliable Cleric/Warpriest. You can get by without one, but they are immensely helpful.

General Feats Tips: Each player is going to want to pick up an Expertise Feat. These are scattered all over the newer Essentials books and the Heroes of the ___ books. They all give a scaling +1/2/3 to attack per tier with a specific implement or weapon as well as a useful bonus.

Assuming you are starting at level 1
Clarent - Buff Str (20 including Racial +2), then Con and Wis in equal parts. You can live with an 8 in Cha or Int if you have to. Pick up Heavy Armor Agility to get remove the speed penalty and an expertise based on your weapon of choice (Heavy Blade for swords, Bludgeoning for hammers, etc)

Sa'har - Buff Dex, Dex, and Dex. Throw some points at Cha and Con as you can. Light blade Expertise is the go-to for melee, or Bow/Crossbow/etc for ranged weapons are out there. Never under estimate the power of thrown daggers (Magical ones come back to your hand). Also, pick up the Quick Draw feat, which will speed you up in combat.

Kaya - A word of Warning, Beastmasters are complex and difficult to optimize. But build Str for Melee or Dex for ranged and pick powers accordingly. Not too much feat advice per se, but check into the Beast Protector Feat to help keep your beast alive.
~~The Sentinel Class (A druid variant) from the Essentials books operates similarly to a Beast Master, but also has some healing capabilities. It's a simpler class like the Knight and operates mainly as a melee attack with a light weight heal. As written, they are limited to a Wolf and a Bear pet (and later this month, they get an elemental option), but that can be refluffed to be almost anything.

Ferrus Pax - Ahh, the Warforged Monk, Good pick. You'll want to take the racial buff to Str, but remember to build primarily for Dex, then Str or Con depending on the specific sub-build you select (Iron Fist seems appropriate). Ki-Focus expertise is your go-to first feat, but everything else is based on what kind of combat you want to partake in (There's a weapon user sub-type, a more ninja style monk, and ones to make your bare fist a superior weapon). As a monk you won't qualify for many of the warforged exclusive gear pieces (attached/embedded items usually for heavy armor and big weapons), but they can still get a few snazzy ones.

For other help, the Character Optimization official forum can give you a lot of insight and ideas. Here's their main thread to jump to a specific class as you need it:

Vest, these are all my characters - so they aren't a party, it's just so I have four I can write my own stories about. I'll main one for a while, and I think I'm leaning towards maining Kaya or Ferrus. I am definitely gonna retool their current stats, which is good 'cuz I've never played a game with them yet.

I also think I'll make Kaya an Artificer, though. I do need a healer, and I don't want to go with the traditional Cleric.

Artificers rock. I've been saving Archeval, a Genasi Storm Artificer since I started rolling for a special party.

And my bad, I missed that these were all yours rather than a party proper.

A part of me is sorely tempted to make 3 recurring Gnoll NPCs who just cause trouble for everyone else named Zhensi, Ibazan and Ward.

Also, I think I'll main Kaya because Ferrus and Clarent's sheets didn't come out right on the one I'm using.

I've also changed Sahar to a Tiefling, although he looks more like the 3E Tieflings in my head - I like the 4E Tiefling designs, but they don't really work for a guy who tires to passhimself off as human, so he's more like Annah from Planescape as a dude in his Tiefling traits. Oh, and his tail was cut off by his father when he was a baby so that he could pass as a normal human - it's kind of like how Leela's parents left her in the Orphanarium since she could pass as an alien. They wanted him to have a better life than they did, basically. His backstory's kind of depressing if you think about it.

Also, I figured out why Ferrus' sheet didn't come out right, but I had to retool Clarent into a Fighter. Now they're ALL playable!

Tiefs in 4e run the gamut of Almost human with a tiny tail and horns to full on devil, human skin tones to deep reds. Lotta wiggle in there. My main is Clavis, a Tiefling Illusionist Mage icon-fire.gif

We wrapped up our delve (at 2 am last night, fml), but it was a heck of a run. Our party was:
Ryoko - Revenant Sorceress (Storm, Genasi Soul, me)
Multani - Wilden Battlemind (My brother sure does love tanking)
Ordo - Human Hunter (A returning regular for our group)
Nos - Vryloka Beast Master Ranger (Giant raven pet)
Bri'a - Hengeyokai Sparrow Bard (A new player, and this will sadly be her only game as she is moving away icon-screamer.gif )

We had 7 kinds of insane fun, including an epic moment where I had had enough of a particular trap, so I shot the hug out of it with lightning causing the hunter to book it at his maximum speed (20 squares~) away from the area. We had a good mix of RP and action and some creative skill usage, which always makes things more fun for everyone (Except for the "GO-Guy")

The Delve was most excellent, and our DM is planning to submit it to Wizards.

Oh, so Tiefs still have all the vriety? I thought that they all looked like they do in the usual 4E art. I guess those are Tiefs who are either full-blooded Tiefs or have a fiend parent - Sa'har's waaaaay down the line and has a full-blooded human parent, so he's had a lot of the fiend traits removed, either through them not passing on to him, or in the case of his tail, it being cut off at birth because his parents wanted him to be able to live as a human... Aside from that aura of uneasiness people get around him. No way around that.

Looking for help from some other Genasi fans in the house (and I would rather get that here than the official boards).

I have decided to work on a Dragon Article of my one (at very least for homebrew) to get a few gaps covered in the Genasi spread.

FRPG: Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Storm Souls
Aberrant: Caustic (Acid), Void, Cinder, Plague Souls
Dark Sun: Ember (Ash), Magma, Sand, Sun Souls

Researching 3e Genasi, and some extrapolation I see we are missing: Wood, Mind, Ice, Moon, and Steam. Did I miss any others?

I decided to change Sa'har back to being a Half-Elf, because in 4E, apparently all Tieflings DO have to have horns and tails. That's kinda stupid, and makes it less possible to make a convincing charmer-type character when they all look like the spawn of Asmodeus.

So basically, his final backstory is his dad is a deadbeat elf, his deceased mom was from Zakhara, and he's been a thief in a big city based on the Eberron setting/Republic City from the Legend of Korra since he was about nine. He's still been buddies with Clarent since they were kids, and since Clarent's now a fighter (why would he keep his ranking as a knight if he was drummed out), the two of them aren't on opposite sides of the law anymore.

Why must your setting be so racist? I figure horned and tailed* people are common enough for one to easily be a charmer!

I decided to change Sa'har back to being a Half-Elf, because in 4E, apparently all Tieflings DO have to have horns and tails. That's kinda stupid, and makes it less possible to make a convincing charmer-type character when they all look like the spawn of Asmodeus.

Why must your setting be so racist? I figure horned and tailed* people are common enough for one to easily be a charmer!

*Dragonborn need to have these >:-(

It isn't the tail, it's the fact that Tieflings are demonspawn that makes the commoners gran the torches and pitchforks. I do kind of want to make a Tiefling swashbuckler who can teleport around at some point, though...

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

Pretty sure by this point a lot of Tieflings are , in fact, Tiefling spawn!

Yea, 4e Tiefs are of human decent. Corrupted humans mind you, but still human stock over all. how big the horns and tail are vary a lot. Clavis' father, Ferox Roaringrim had a huge pair of antler sized horns, but his mother was (mostly) human.
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

Well, I decided to have Sa'har be a Tief. He doesn't need to pass for human, since he grew up in the slums. Poor guy's spent almost his whole life on his own.

I'm also made a Dragonborn Slayer named Muo Lung whose personality I lovingly ripped off from BW Dinobot (his name is one of Dinobot's Chinese names), and a Drow (GASP) Healic named Arana who was left to die on the surface by her father because she isn't a full-blooded Drow. Fortunately, an older cleric of the Raven Queen took her in and raised her as his own.

Normally, I dislike Drow as player characters, since they're usually Drizz't wannabes, but I decided I'd make mine a "what if a Drow never even knew of the rest of her race and thought she was just a strange elf?" type dealie. Kind of a "raised by people who aren't psychos" way and make her more of a Neutral Good character.

I find a lot of my characters lean towards the old definition of Neutral Good.

I'm still maining Kaya, but I decided I'd create these two of the need arises.
