Monsters and Other Childish Things
Eclipse Phase

How can you NOT want to play those after listening to Ross talk about them?!

I also now own every supplement available for Monsters.

RPGs / Trinity (a.k.a. AEon Trinity, a.k.a. "rhymes with crayon")

I've been a fan of White Wolf for almost exactly a decade now, ever since I picked up a copy of Exalted back in 2002. I proceeded on to World of Darkness, then Aberrant, New World of Darkness, and Adventure!. One book I was never able to secure a copy of was the originator of the Trinity trilogy, "Trinity". However, after searching for quite a while, I finally came across the core book at an Antique mall, of all places.

I've given it a skim, and I'm currently loving it. I kinda wanna hear from some other folks about it, though. I had an interesting conversation with a good gentleman on reddit (and that conversation is here, for anyone interested), but I'd also like to get some other perspective. I'd especially be curious to see what Ross has to say, as I do so love hearing his opinions on games (and frequently have similar tastes).

Now, other than Shadowrun and, to a lesser extent, Star Wars, I don't have much experience playing sci-fi games (and yes, Star Wars is arguably fantasy, hence why I say to a lesser extent). So I don't know how Trinity stacks up to other sci-fi settings. I'm sure it's not as hearty or realistic, or "hard sci" as Eclipse Phase and the like, but I'd still like to hear from fans of the genre. If I recall correctly, Tom rather liked the sci-fi Cthulhu game.

Anyhoo .. discuss ..?!

Are you still going to do a reset, or are you leaving it as is?

Sweet deal, good to know about the reset ahead of time.

It may not matter for me anyhoo, though. I've been entirely unable to connect to the server :(

I would say that the idea of transcripts for the normal podcasts is a great one. I would love to have physical copies to read through, for browsing and searching purposes. I don't personally find interest in transcripts of AP's, if for no reason other than they can tend to get a bit hectic.

Ahoy there! Hoping I could get in on this Minecraft action. My Minecraft username is the same as my forum name: kristastic357

Whoa, how'd I miss this?! I'm TOTALLY in if you're still gonna do it!

So.. did this game die before it started? Or are you still setting stuff up? Just making sure I didn't miss anything. :)

Character Profiles / Character Profile: Jared Madison
« on: April 23, 2011, 04:26:14 PM »
Jared Madison was born to two loving, pleasant parents in Portland, OR. They were kind, pillar-of-society type folk; his father a studious businessman, his mother a homemaker. Both were from a religious background, though neither were zealots about their faith. They cared for and loved Jared, and cherished every moment they had with him.

That is, every moment before about a week after his fourteenth birthday, when Jared informed his mom and dad that he was gay. Things went downhill fast after that in the Madison household. His mother was worried she'd never see grandchildren, and his father was ashamed, and couldn't bear to look at him anymore. One night during dinner, when Jared was 17, his father was fed up and slapped him for speaking out of turn. That was when his father realized how good it felt to vent his frustrations, and sadly, that was when the nightly beatings began. His mother, as many tend to do in times such as these, simply looked the other way.

Things persisted that way for a while. Jared's school life started out great; when he arrived in high school, he had friends, high grades, and a world of oppurtunities. But when his home life crumbled around him, he struggled with his social and educational life. His best friend was Charles Montgomery, a student the same age as he. Charles was straight, and couldn't care less that Jared was gay. Jared, for his part, dated a few men behind his parents' and friends' backs (except for Charles, to whom Jared told everything). Jared even at one point dated a girl, named Abbigail, to try to appease his parents. This didn't last long, though, and she caught him in bed with another man, thus ending the relationship on quite a bad note.

After high school, Jared's parents wouldn't allow him to leave the house, too ashamed to let him into the world, as they said. He stuck around, working sub-par part time jobs for a while, squirelling away money whenever he could. The beatings continued nightly, and finally, on his 20th birthday, he left.

Charles had moved to Corvallis to attend OSU a couple of years prior, and Jared stayed with him in a house off campus. He got a job at Taco Bell to help pay the bills. After a month or two, Jared decided to do something meaningful and start attending college himself. He received sufficient student loans and financial aid grants to quit his job and become a full time student, studying Psychology, hoping one day to become a counselor.

When Jared moved to Corvallis, he decided to tuck away his sexuality, and never let people know the real him. Even amongst friends of the LGBT community, Jared poses as a straight man, for fear of ostricisation and ridicule, or worse. He even recognizes the irrationality behind hiding his true self from his homosexual friends, but he still can't bring himself to be "out". Charles is the only person who knows that he is gay. He even has a girlfriend.

Jared met Danita Mauve during his first year at OSU. She is a year younger than he, and also studying Psychology. Funny, fun, intelligent, and friendly, Jared and she hit it off immediately. The two of them, along with Charles, spent all of their time together, and eventually Jared realized that Danita was into him. He decided to move their friendship into a courtship, and eventually to an exclusive relationship. He cares for Danita, and loves her dearly as family, but not romantically. Danita, for her part, does love Jared romantically, and has no idea whatsoever that he is a homosexual. They've slept together one time, at which point Danita mentioned she wasn't ready, which suits Jared just fine. He gets to hang out with one of his best friends all the time, and occasionally he has to make out with her. It keeps Danita happy, and it keeps up his appearance of being a "red-blooded, straight American man".

One week, in 1991, Danita invited Jared to come out to Bourne and meet her family. (Dun dun duuuun).

I would like to officially throw my hat in for this game. I'm working on a concept right now :)

I am a 'tard, must not have seen that link. I do so hate browsing on my phone. Thank you much, Ross!

I do hope that A) this question isn't out of place and B) this hasn't already been answered. I did a search but couldn't find a solution.
Is there any way to load the feed for the Community AP into Google Listen (or some other such podcast app for Android)? I'm not sure if I just missed the feed link, or if it's not possible. I can't download the individual AP's from my phone very well just off the website, and would love to be able to listen to them without having to DL them on my comp at home then transfer them here.

Again, sorry if this question is redundant or misplaced. Thanks in advance! Love the show!
