Gradient Plus... it sounds so typical.

General Chaos / Ayn Randian Dragon?
« on: June 27, 2015, 09:45:06 PM »
So... hearing various jokes about Ayn Rand across some of the AP's, as well as vague memories of when I read Atlas Shrugged back in high school (and thought it was just a weird story at the time), got me wondering. What if a dragon from D&D of any alignment read her philosophy? What do you all think would happen?

I wonder if any of the crew will be able to perform a  successful transplant operation. My guess is no, just so I can look forward to being proved wrong.

General Chaos / Introducing Friends to RPPR
« on: April 12, 2015, 02:07:36 PM »
So, I have a friend of mine from across the pond that I'd like to introduce to RPPR, or at least the AP site. Does anyone here have any ideas as to what AP I should show them first? I was thinking the Better Angels campaign, but if anyone else has any ideas, I'd love to hear them. He isn't much of a fan of tabletop gaming, if one at all. I'm just looking to try and share something I enjoy.

And the sword has now ended up in the hands, or claws, of a dragon. What's the story behind him by the way? And that lich guy on the Actual Play site's banner? The other character I don't recognize on it is the skeleton in the space-suit, but I think he/she/it(?) is tied to Heroes of Arcadia, something I have yet to listen to in full.

I'm currently reading the Powder Mage Trilogy by Brian McClellan. Book two, The Crimson Campaign to be precise.  It's a pretty cool series, guns, and magic and mages who specialize with guns called powder mages. It has some classical fantasy stuff like magic and gods and whatnot, but there's also warfare that's akin to the Napoleonic Wars too. Definately worth checking out. The first book is Promise of Blood.

Can anyone think of any more development they would need, beyond the obvious stuff of being adjusted for the system? If nothing else I would like to see the ideas put out there.

Huh, I didn't know that, thank's for the update. As to a reason why Urban Knight would go to a black market, I'm going to say boredom and compulsion. Boredom drove him to go in first place, wanting to get his hands on some super-technology to make his life more interesting, and ended up being subtly compelled by whichever sword I go for to purchase it.

As for Grey, he would have arrived because of being stranded by allies, having made a wring choice about who to back during an attempted coup. Now that he's on Earth with the vague orders of "Secure it for the empire while we fix the mess we're in," he's chosen to obey those orders via helping Base Raiders do their thing. He knows his empire isn't going to be invading anytime soon, if at all, thanks to internal strife. As for goals, because of his relationship with an organic female member of the empire's elite, he wants to be able to actually bring comfort to someone he cares for. To be, "warm and alive." Basically, he wants to become an android, or something that would combine his robotic nature with more physical human qualities.

Here's idea number one:

Urban Knight (based off a picture from the Image Thread). Either a retired SWAT officer or a soldier coming back from the Middle East who had to stop over in either England or Ireland on the way back to the States. While there, he came across an old sword, which he somehow managed to get back home. Compelled to take some kind of action against the crime the regular police can't handle in the post-Ragnarok world, he created the persona of the Urban Knight, making a mixture of knight armor and modern tactical gear with a riot shield. He operated by night of course, fighting malevolent Base Raiders or anyone or anything else that would be a threat to the populace. His goal is to become a true knight, ceremony and everything.

Now if it was Ireland he went to, the sword is the Claiomh Solais (Sword of Light) and if England, Excalibur. These allow him to do harm to supernatural threats at all, and down the line after unlocking their true potential would become Aspects in their own rights. Speaking of, one Aspect I know for sure he has is Clamor of Battle, or Battle's Clamor. His head becomes filled with the battle cries of past warriors and the clash of sword and shield. He can't hear anything, and is protected from psychic assault. Hopefully it would protect against social combat too, but that's for the experts to decide.

Concept 2: A highly advanced and sophisticated hunter/killer robot from another dimension by the working name of Grey, based off a character from Choujin Sentai Jetman. He was once  apart of the elite soldiers of a multi-dimensional empire, but something made him end up on Earth and in the hands of the Underground. Nowadays he makes a living selling his services to base raiders to pay for his walk in closet sized residence down there, while sampling fine wines, smoking cigars and cigarettes, and playing a piano he got down into that one cafe place somehow.

Aspect-wise he'd have knowledge of high technology and multiple dimension and traveling between, being a master tracker, expert marksman since he's a walking arsenal, and a major goal is to be able to truly feel love, and be "warm".

How do these concepts sound?

Is this the thread I'd come to if I wanted to throw around ideas for a BaseRaiders character? I have a couple of very basic ideas, and while I don't see myself playing the game anytime soon (nor do I have much knowledge of the system) I would like to at least discuss the ideas I have.

Hello all! I'm Thomas from the U.S.A, and I got into the podcast while randomly searching around on iTunes for some new podcast to listen to. I think the first one I listened to was either the Call of Cathulhu or the Isle of Doctor Oak. After that I listened to the Better Angels campaign, and I've been enjoying the RPPR antics ever since. Hopefully one day I'll get a chance to try out some of the games the guys have done over the years, especially Eclipse Phase, Base Raiders, and Better Angels.  Wouldn't mind giving Call of Cthulhu a chance too if I can.
