General Rotors / Everyone should watch Conan tonight.
« on: January 12, 2011, 11:32:18 PM »
I think the majority of you do, anyway, but tonight is especially important: Tim Minchin is making his american TV debut!

I've been racking my brain trying to think which offensive-to-Christian-morals-and-american-sensibilities song he's going to sing tonight. It's gonna suck when he gets all super popular and people ruin him. I will look back on the last two years with fondness.

Also Ice Cube.

General Rotors / Joshi misses the point.

<joshi>Okay so she saves these little guys, Scubamon.  They want to repay her by taking her to see their undersea master.  In English, they want her to kill him. In Japanese, he wants to mate with her to produce hideous hybrid creatures.
<Chrispy> Wow... that is quite a difference
<Joshi> At the beginning of the episode there's a blob of 'text,' "digicode." This stuff always actually translates into something. This blob here

<Chrispy> uh-huh?
<Joshi> "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn." The guys she helps are fucking DEEP ONES
<Chrispy> DUDE! That's awesome!
<Joshi > Their Undersea master?  LORD FUCKIN' DAGO(mo)N
<Chrispy> Hahahahahahahahaha. Digimon just became way hardcore
<Joshi> The writer to that episode, Chikai Konaka, is a Lovecraft author AS YOU MAY HAVE GUESSED. Look on the right. Head writer
<Chrispy> Ralph bakshi?!
<Joshi> that is director
<Chrispy> Dude, do you fucking know who Ralph Bakshi is?!
<Joshi> Not a damn clue
<Chrispy> As in: The Ralph Bakshi animated Lord of the Rings Movie
<Joshi> The Butter Battle Book
(11:30:47 PM):     yes
(11:30:48 PM):     .
Joshi 11:30 pm
(11:30:49 PM):     oh
(11:30:50 PM):     ..
(11:30:52 PM):     BUTTER BATTLE
(11:31:09 PM):     Look okay what matters is
(11:31:09 PM):     ..
(11:31:25 PM):     Man I wish I knew what episode to check hang on
<Chrispy> Dude, fuck your lovecraft guy, RALPH FUKKEN BAKSHI DIRECTED THIS

General Rotors / I'm in a Podcast!
« on: September 10, 2010, 03:22:30 AM »
Go give it a listen! Hear me play a boisterous young dwarf ready for action and thirsty for adventure! Listen closely as I get humiliated by possessed farm animals and march foolishly into the midst of danger in search of the Book of Sorrows!


and last I checked we had a second one at my store.

I'm going to take mine in tomorrow and shrink wrap it for the rest of eternity.

General Rotors / The Saddest Story ever.
« on: July 23, 2010, 07:03:02 PM »
I'm posting this here because FML has a character limit that is far too small for a good anecdote.

So, a few days ago I got a message on facebook from my dad telling me to call him. I figured he just wanted to catch up since he hasn't seen me in a few months and didn't give it any mind. I had today off so I decided to call him and see what was up; Turns out someone had given him VIP tickets to Comic Con and a paid hotel reservation for the entire weekend and he wanted to tell me to rearrange my weekend so I could go.

I never called him, so he gave the tickets back. Also, earlier this week I picked up a shift for Saturday because I had nothing better to do anyway. FML

General Rotors / [3.5/PFRPG] Interesting Druid builds.
« on: July 02, 2010, 02:46:19 AM »
So, I want to make a Satyr Druid for my next game. My DM is letting me use races of the Wild and Masters of the Wild, as well as Races of Stone.

We're doing away with level adjustment, so I don't haver to worry about empty levels, but we are trying to keep it around ECL 13. I want to make him more of a classical political figure like real world druids and have settled on NE for his alignment.

Stats were done using the point buy, so he's looking at 13, 15, 14, 16, 16, 22. I want to give him feats based on trickery and scheming. I would like to put at least 3 levels in some sort of Assassin like class. Any good base classes or PrCs I should look into, my dm is pretty open.

I am open to any suggestions on builds, and the stats aren't set in stone. We're using the High Fantasy point buy from the PFRPG core rulebook.


General Rotors / Happy birthday, Art!

I know he's not around to read this because he's at basic, but I was just thinking about him earlier today and realized how much I miss the guy.

Happy birthday man! Can't wait till you get out and come home to visit

General Rotors / SERPG: Kickin' it Old School
« on: March 13, 2010, 03:54:58 PM »
I've cut down on the amount of times I'm participating in games each week. I'm actually not even running anything right now, mainly doing prep work while others in my groups run games, and I thought this would be a nice time to try and start this thing up again.

However, the more I play games, the more I feel that the system I'm playing is flawed. And those flaws stick out to me more than strengths. I think this partly due to system overload and I just need a change of scene. Which is where you guys would come in. How would you feel about playing some OD&D? I'm not talking AD&D, I'm talking '81 basic edition boxed set. Old school.

The game is simple enough for us all to pick up, though a bit more limited in the game mechanics choices department, but deeper in the character development department. Character creation would be a simple thing of choosing your equipment, rolling your stats and picking your class. Everything else is handled by you with back story and good solid role playing. I've got to play a couple sessions using the OD&D system, and character creation takes less than fifteen minutes. The games is really pick up and play if you are used to the newer, more complicated systems or todays RPGs.

So, who's interested? Which one of you lot wants to do things the grognard way? When we have enough people, we can draw up characters. We could probably even handle that part on the boards themselves through PMs or in this topic, as it is honestly quite simple. But, I wouldn't mind talking to people over skype as that was seriously a lot of fun last time. While doing this, I feel that we should also try to coordinate schedules and what not, and also choose a format of play that works best for everyone. I am down for a straight skype session using a program like gametable or the like (which supports dice rolling and the use of tactical combat and a chat program), or doing a play by post game somewhere on the boards. Whichever is fine with me.

Now a bit about what we will be playing and the structure of the game:
We'll be playing OD&D. I'm more partial to the BEMCI rules set that spanned from 1981 to 1999, but if you guys really want to go full old school, we can use the '74 Whitebox rules (the first D&D rules ever released). Well, we'd sort of be using them. We'd actually be using free retroclone games that people have made to keep the spirit of the old games alive.
The games are Labyrinth Lord and Swords and Wizardy, respectively, and depending on how simple you guys want this, we can use either one. I have both on my HDD, and can give them to you if you want them.

We'll be playing a series of premades. Starting with the classic Keep on the Borderlands, and when you've exhausted everything there is to do in that area, we'll move to the Isle of Dread. Once we get past the keep I will be looking into more adventures online for you guys to play.

So, let me know: who's interested? I know the last one fell through, but that was partly because I had too much on my plate at the time. I think this can work, especially if we do a play by post game, and it would help me out and give me a change of pace. It will also give me the chance to fulfill that nagging want to play OD&D I get all the time.

Joshi (8:48:45 AM): Bruce Banner should grow a beard
ChrizztToPherden (8:49:23 AM): ...he would look far too much like Paul Bunyan when he transforms into the Hulk though, and that might be some sort of royalties issue
Joshi (8:49:34 AM): he would not
Joshi (8:49:42 AM): Paul Bunyan wears a shirt
Joshi (8:49:48 AM): and isn't great

ChrizztToPherden (8:50:30 AM): Would it shoot lazers?
ChrizztToPherden (8:50:36 AM): I imagine a gamma beard doing that
ChrizztToPherden (8:51:09 AM): "MYGOD, HIS BEARD IS AN UNSTOPPABLE MONSTER!" the people would say as he throws cars at them
Joshi (8:51:25 AM): You know
ChrizztToPherden (8:51:28 AM): Then he can cohost infomercials. I think the hulk would be a natural at this
Joshi (8:51:38 AM): Under Hulk's Gammabeard there isn't a chin, just a third first
ChrizztToPherden (8:51:46 AM): "Me think that incredible deal, Suzanne. Me think you should tell Hulk more."
Joshi (8:52:09 AM): "You order Complete Gym now or HULK SMASH PUNY BUYERS."
ChrizztToPherden (8:52:26 AM): See, look at all that charisma
Joshi (8:53:40 AM): ahahaha
Joshi (8:55:24 AM): I think we're on to something here

General Rotors / Plans are underway for a Gary Gygax memorial statue
« on: August 05, 2009, 05:59:28 PM »

I think he is deserving of one. Not a huge elaborate statue, but something to remember him by would be nice.

General Discussion / TRIPLE BRITHDAY

Happy Birthday Spazz, Bartman and Rob!

So, it's a really nice day today, and instead of staying inside, I decided to go out on the front porch and surf the web. About ten minutes ago a guy in a white truck drove down my culdesac, I looked to see if I recognized the person driving and I didn't. I live at the end of the street, so I didn't give it much mind and though until he turned around and parked right in front of me.

He's been here for like, 15 minutes now. I'm afraid to pack up my stuff and go inside because he might try to get out and follow me. What should I do?

General Discussion / Dave Arneson passed away at 61 a couple days ago

He may not have been as popular a person as Gygax, but he was still integral to the game I love. He will be missed.
