General Chaos / Weirdest Scenario You have Ever Run
« on: April 20, 2016, 08:24:25 PM »
Given the increase in madcap antics of the rppr actual plays and plots, I posit the question of what is the weirdest game idea you have ever turned into a working game. 

My own would have to be a game of WUSHU in which each player created a Smurf and we ran them through the zombie episode of the smurfs. 

RPGs / Los Cthuluchadores

When I saw this I wasn't sure if it was real or if I have failed my last san check.

Los Cthuluchadores: Elder Things in the Wrestling Ring

A wrestling/mythos mashup. Not the oddest mashup out there but truly an odd one.   

RPGs / MaOCT Hack for Mecha
« on: October 04, 2012, 06:22:40 PM »
Has anyone tried this?

     In this case what I mean is replacing the monster with a mecha instead and running a space opera type game.  It seems like it could work very easily as the basis for Mecha games is the human aspect rather than the giant fighting robot aspect.  This makes relationships dice and shock fit even better...

     Any ideas?  I was thinking of burning through the 101 mecha plots on and posting some examples here if anyone is interested.

RPGs / Tabletop Forge
« on: June 25, 2012, 03:33:11 PM »
     I was purusing teh internets and stumbled upon Tabletop Forge.  It's a Google Plus App that allows for Roleplaying.  Given that my RPG group has spread across the world once again I figured I'd give it a shot. I'll be testing it out tonight and I'll drop a review of it here.    I was using Skype for RPG sessions, but may switch over depending on how this goes.

     Anyone else tried this out? Any comments about something better that's already out there?   

General Chaos / Audio Dramas
« on: January 23, 2012, 09:04:53 PM »
Anyone know of some good ones.  I've been listening to these as I drive in addition to audio books (nothing like an hour commute). 

One's that I've found and would recommend for RPPR fans is We're Alive: A Story of Survival.  It's a pretty good zombie survival story thus far.

I like the stuff from Redline Theater.

Also, despite the fact that they're ancient, The Shadow and Gangbusters have their moments.  Oddly enough I don't like the Superman ones though. 

RPGs / Monsters and Other Childish Things Game
« on: November 28, 2011, 08:56:15 PM »
I have started up a monsters and other childish things game.  Character Creation is this weekend and I was wondering what to watch for as far as powergaming.  Some of my player are point-whoring power gamers. What breaks a game of monsters and are there any house rules that might help stem the flow?

As a note I'm only using the core MaOCT book and not bigger bads.

General Chaos / Name that movie....
« on: November 19, 2011, 01:46:14 PM »
I've been looking for an 80's movie for awhile but I can't seem to find the name anywhere.  It is an 80s buddy cop horror movie.

 It starts off with a bankrobbery and the cops take the guys down.  Then they find out that the robbers have been dead for a few days before they were torn to shreds by the cops.  The climax of the movie happens in a slaughterhouse where the reanimation machine starts reanimating eveything including a bull.  Any ideas?

RPGs / Roleplaying over Skype...
« on: November 07, 2011, 05:27:17 PM »
     I'm considering moving the online game that I play over from google plus to skype. Before I use it to run a game I want to test drive it by playing in a game. I've googled it up and have yet to find a site that has has skype games.  Where can I find a skype game to learn the ropes of both playing and running a game? 

RPGs / Google Plus
« on: September 24, 2011, 11:28:56 PM »
My gaming group has been scattered to the four corners of the earth once again.  Anyways, long story short, I still want to play with my friends.  I see this as a good way to get everyone together to play some rpgs even if it is not together at the same geographically located gaming table.  Anyone have experience with this? Any suggestions?

RPGs / Running a Cosmic Level WUSHU game Need NPC ideas
« on: August 23, 2011, 07:43:04 PM »
With this game i'm pulling out all the stops.  I told the players they could play whatever they want.  The setting is a city in the center of the universe where all time and space meets.  Naturally my players jumped at the chance to allow their imagination to become unfettered.  This leaves me with a sandbox city that needs to be filled.

Describe the most abusive, over-the-top NPCs to throw at them and give me a motivation for them. 

RPGs / New Project-a cheap gametable
« on: June 14, 2011, 07:46:25 PM »
I was browsing the net and came across this:

<a href="" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win"></a>

Over the next month (in between my move to a new house and acclimating to new employment), I am going to put this idea to the test by making a game table with one of my older PCs and a projector that was given to me.  I'm first going to see how it works with maptools and move to other applications, such as lackey CCG and Vassal.  If anyone has any suggestions let me know.

RPGs / The Modern League of Extraordinary Gentleman Plots
« on: May 20, 2011, 07:59:43 PM »
Of all the things that  I have used from RPPR, this idea seems to be the one that my players have latched onto the most, so I thought a thread for it would be neat.  The concept is simple: anything that has ever happened in a movie really happened ( I call this the fanfictoverse).  All the players choose a hero of their choice and go to town.  When I run this I use WUSHU but any system will do.

I borrowed a lot of ideas for this from both RPPR and Happy Jacks RPG podcast. Here's the scenario I ran:

Doc Brown messed with time one too many times.  He accidently came into contact with something from beyond space and time, and it is tearing its way into our world.  Doc Brown assembles the heroes without knowing he is one of the masterminds behind what is going to happen.  Doc Brown phases out of time and space as the characters are attacked by various slasher flick villians.  The ones that try to escape go into the sewers.  The PCs find that a river of orange ooze has replaced the water. A fight scene between the PCs and IT (the one from the Stephen King novel) ensues.  The PC's end up coming up at Ghostbusters International Headquarters where someone has blown up the conatinment unit.  The PCs fight their way through cenobites, gremlins, zombies (every game needs atleast one zombie scene), and finally make it to the roof where they meet Doc Brown.  He says something like its all for you and then tranforms into a giant monster from beyond space and time, and as this is occurring, the villians from the various movies that the PCs' heroes are from show up as well.  But that's not all.  They hear a rumbling from down the street as a statue comes into view.  It is Lord Vigo from Ghostbusters II and a catholic priest riding the statue of liberty (now infused with liquid evil) though a thunderstorm.  After some of the fight the priest turns out to be the priest from the first exorcist and the PCs are fighting the antichrist.

When I ran this we all had a blast.  The hero lineup was Steven Seagal, Machete, Scarface, Conner McCloud, and the guy from Wanted (the not so great movie version).  

Anyways, I plan on running the Modern LoEG sometime again in the future.  Has anybody else run?  Any other cool ideas for a MLoEG game plot?    

RPGs / Running Star ORE
« on: March 16, 2011, 01:38:36 PM »
Anyone have an idea as to how to balance Jedi/Sith with a guy who will not use the force?  The game seems rather one sided in this regard.  I'm having the "If you play a game with mech in the title you better play a mech" problem.
