RPGs / 4 kids, 1 talking dog
« on: March 28, 2012, 03:25:43 PM »
Hey all, am currently working on a rpg scenario involving kids fighting off zombies and other monsters near there cottage. 4 of my friends are planning to play sibling and one is dead set (along with the others) to play a larger mastiff type dog that talks, also he wheres a cape and the kids can ride it like a horse. so I'm currently debating what rule set to use, I was originally going to use Little Fears, but I look at Monsters more and more and think it might be a better option. My question is this, how should I proceed with one monster (the talking dog) that is shared among the four kids? has anyone else faced such a dilemma? I'm new to GMing, but am really intrigued with playing this scenario.

Recently grabbed " Alice, madness Returns" and started playing the first game that you can download using it. "American Mcgee's Alice" With the music and tim burton-esque atmosphere, it's a fun platformer thus far. though the low poly count makes the game that much more creepy.


I couldn't resist, I find Calebs one liners in Critique of Cthulhu Awesome and Hilarious!

Yes! I was waiting on this episode ever since hearing about it on unspeakable when Ross mentioned it. That was a great AP. Just fantastic to listen to.

I imagine Earth looks a little bit like this in EP

This is in reply to Moondogs last reply. It has mass effect 3 spoilers.

[spoiler]I don't know what to say, I was given three choices that all ended with me not seeing my romantic interest and so I chose the option that didn't result in the Geth or EDI, whom all trusted my character with their lives, dying and broke the cycle of the reapers. I figured the reapers couldn't be controlled with that option and the synthesis ending seemed more appealing, at least as far as I saw it. Seeing joker and EDI happy was a cool ending even though my character was likely dead and had left Liara alone and possibly with child. (I assume that's what the final romance sequence with her was all about). I also dug the idea of the galaxy becoming half synthetic/half organic, i think that more attributes to listening to the eclipse phase actual plays I've been listening to lately. XD

As for the concept of the mass relays being destroyed and destroying everything, I can only draw a personal conclusion that the energies that power them were just used for dispersal of that crucible energy and it has a different affect than when a asteroid crashes into one. I was thrown off by the ending and confused for a bit, but for some reason I wasn't Raging about it or all that disappointed, I liked the twist?

And then i saw the rumors cycling around about The Truth DLC the next day and replayed a separate ending where my character destroyed the reapers, because the info I saw for why it was a hallucination made a lot of sense to me. I can understand people feeling betrayed by bioware, I just dont feel about it though, I see the cup as half full?[/spoiler]

That's my personal opinion anyway.

Sounds like it may not be the true ending. They seem to have just wanted to get us talking, and have a little extra time to work on the game. You have to bare in mind, the early leaks screwed things up a bit. I love the game, and (blasphemy?) Liked the idea of the ending, I actually got up and slowly clap and complimented Bioware for having the Balls to pull a stunt like this, It was a very interesting developement. I hope The Truth DLC rumor ends up being true, but the idea of Trans-humanism could be cool too.

Firstly, The first film is the only true film, I try to deny the ... "sequel"... when I can.
And Secondly, That is awesome to here. XD Hope fully one day soon Ross will put up that AP, he did in-fact mention they had recorded a session on "The Drunk and the Ugly".

Also thank you for making me aware of another cool podcasting crew, Salkovich.

Role Playing Public Radio Podcast / Legacy of Nimh Actual Play?

Was re-listening to "Critique of Cthulhu" episode and at the end, the Legacy of Nimh scenario came up and I want to know, will there be actual plays of the Legacy of NIMH, were the session recorded? I would be very interested in checking those out, I loved the first movie and this scenario could easily replace my memories of the...(shivers) sequel.

While playing Mass Effect 3 this morning I traveled to the planet Carcosa to recover part of an ancient library.  :-\
The Codex informed me that the planet held the ruins of a palace overlooking a depression thought to have once been a large lake.


I'm sorry, but the Reapers are definitely inspired from the Great Old Ones or lovecraftian cosmic horrors. There's indirect mention of them as such throughout the games. And everytime I see that big one approach the little girl in the sunflower fields (the cinematic trailer) I think "Ia Ia Cthulhu Fhtagn."
Yeah, that was my reaction. Unfortunately, (or maybe fortunately in this case) you can't land and check the place out. You basically scan the planet until you locate the library and then fire a probe to mark/retrieve the info.
Even with giant, sapient star ships trying to kill us all, looking for an ancient library on Carcosa feels like a bad plan.

Also, most of the reapers seem to be squid-based . . .

RELATED: Silent Hill Downpour. I'm not sure whether or not I like it yet. But it is much more tense than Homecoming was, so that is a point in its favor.

A bud and I watched the film and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I love these found footage horror and monster films regardless but it was a first time for my friend. Our favorite line by far is when Hans shows up on camera and after looking very serious at the group shout...
"TROLL!" And then runs off again.

Though not as awesome as Caleb by far. Does anyone else listen to Smodcast by the way? If so does Caleb sound like a younger Scott Mossier to anyone else?

Curse you graphic designers! Listening to podcasts because no one needs you to be acceptable in the public eye. Just hanging around in your floral shirts and your liberty spikes and your pierced eye lids and your baggy pants and your skull make-up and your enhanced DNA and your feathered caps and...

why yes I am made of awesome, aren't I. ;)
