huh, well I will be, did not know that.
I'd be curious to get a poll of the gamers to see how many gaming groups actually enjoy solving mazes. Go to Comment

Kyle DiGlado

axlerowes's comment on 2012-09-23 12:46 PM
This land solidly in my favorite genre, Kyle would be a could opponent for a noir anti-hero or love-hate counter part for superhero themed vigilante. I find it interesting that as cynical as he is he still follows politics. Which most likely confirms his cynicism, but following closely suggests he either develops and feeds of his disillusionment or he hasn't given up hope. Go to Comment

This is the best retelling of the source material for the cosmic era I have yet read. It is damn shame something like this gets less respect than list of 30 thing we already know. This genuinely subversive and clever. My only compliant was the reference to mostly white males. Is race as it was defined in the 1980s still really an issue in the cosmic era? If so what does "white" mean in that time. If you wanted to communicate something about the ethnic nature of a group, white males might something when discussing a present day group. but I don't know what it means in the cosmic era. Or does AC want to bring back old school racism and sexism as well? Go to Comment

Good answer, it just re affirms in my mind that there is a lot here above and beyond a cobra reboot. I love smart satire, thanks for this Go to Comment
The Hellephant

axlerowes's comment on 2012-10-08 09:57 PM
I too like the way it reproduces.
But something that ravages an already ravaged wasteland really does not carry the same threat of destruction as something that comes out to disrupt the hubris of peace and prosperity. The real story would start when the hellebabies make land fall in Sweden or some other country that sat out the war. I like the idea, but this doesn't seem to be the whole story. Go to Comment
Chimera Prototype Mk-XXIII

"Put that in you pipe and smoke it, John Galt!"

I love the conflict origin of this one, that this is channels the 99% rage and the conflicts behind wealth distribution. If you were to add more to this sub, I would tell more the chimera's story rather than to develop the physics of the chimera. Though I do like Omega Draco's ideas.

The teaser was awesome. Go to Comment

I really liked this one, I know it is just a list 'facts' but the tone I found fun and the picture made me laugh.
I have tried to make my aggressive love for fantasy flora and fauna known on this website, and this one just titers of the being a really great post. I absolutely love the idea and don't think it needs any more but it has so much potential to add more. Is there a hive mind? How long do the larva live in larva form?

Finally the kaiju genre demands, that right I said it, demands that the monster represent some other type of conflict or fear. Godzilla represented the nations fear of nuclear radiation, King Kong represented a nations fear of......, well Son of Kong represented the guilt associated with that fear. In Kaiju fiction I have read in the past five years monster attacks coincide with more persona- emo -issues. There was one story published in a paying market no less, in which the attack coincided with the progression of main character's mother's cancer, and another in which the giant wolf-chimera seemed to be responding to the bad break-up between a couple of west coasters named Reggie and Gwen. These could certainly be seen to represent the consequence of the rain forest destruction, but if your are going to cook it up you may as well put it on platter.

Overall really loved it, thanks for writing it. Go to Comment

30 Joes
NPCs  (Extras)   (Combative)
axlerowes's comment on 2014-03-09 01:31 PM

Scrap-metal, Bomb crazy and Hot-rod are the only single person on the list? Everybody else is generalized or an archetype. You jump between character summaries, personality archetypes and skill sets. I could break this down, but I like your clone write up of Joes better. So i feel like you have already improved your integration of the Joes into your setting.

Have you done C.O.P.S. yet?

What about M.A.S.K.?

With the whole sale genetic engineering you could do Wuzzles, Glo Worms or Teddy Ruxbin (spelling)

What about GoBots could we some how parse those out from transformers?

What about the Inhumanoids? I had a D'Compose toy I thought was really cool.

I think you nailed you summed up the issues with this sub in you own comment. You tell a story sort, you have events, but you don't really have characters, motivations, or a plot. You just have a lot descriptions such...killed by rail gun...killed by plasma cannon and so on. Those don't really do much for the description except outline your vision for how these encounters should play out.

Still there is a lot here. Go to Comment

A nice narrative will details that could be lifted by any world builder or scene setting gamemaster. I also really enjoy game write ups, I don't support them enough on this site.

Didn't anybody mention that the Brigand would be better named Fury if his gang was the Fists of Fury? ;)

axlerowes's comment on 2012-10-08 09:44 PM
Physic shysics, I think this is great, this tells the story Qualm's origin and outlines how future stories involving Qualm will take shape. I could really see a justice league like unit of super heros taking this on as well. I think CM and the others highlight most what was great about this, but I also like the name. How did it get the name? Go to Comment

You're In Deep

       By: Murometz

The PCs are exploring the catacombs beneath a Colosseum-in-Rome type of structure, when they come across a foul-smelling, stagnant, ankle-deep with algae, public mass latrine. Countless urinals of marble, line this rather large chamber equally crafted of marble. Whatever system of plumbing once worked here, has not in many years. Old graffiti lines the stained,dirty walls, prominently bolded are such intellectual poetic musings as, "Urine For It Now", "I Pee Therefore It Comes" and "Now Urine Trouble".

A few moments after the PCs get to take in this unpleasant location, they hear the low rumbling of ancient plumbing and rather large Urine Elemental rises like a great, wet, wave of filth to attack them. The creature reeks and exudes noxious debilitating fumes, while its liquid strikes burn flesh like acid.
