Oh boy that sounds like loads of fun. I'm at Ft Gordon. We got a fun little scandal going on because some one decided that spreading the word of Jesus was more important than EO or religious freedom policies and made a "spiritual bar b que" a mandatory event.
Not really. Atheist, and I've taken a lot of shit for it. Living in the bible belt sucks balls for a guy like me. Christian rock amd overt shows of religious zeal grate on my nerves. I don't mind people having their faith but having it shoved in my face is annoying at best.
I didn't even get any bar b que cause tbe line was too long. Shit bags.
Not bad, probably not making honor grad but shit happens. Crazy shit happened yesterday though. The Company Commander pulled me and another guy out of class, in the middle of a exam no less. Apparently West Point is gonna be here this week doing physical testing and getting applications filled out. He was offering to pull us out of morning pt to let us go for it.
I have plans in civilian world. Rather large ones at that. As much of an accomplishment as it would be, I don't want to go that deep into the military. I don't intend to remain in the military as a career.
Apologies friend, but General Rep just isn't gonna happen. I appreciate what it is. But that's half the problem. My father went in deep into the military. Did black ops shit, fought in wars that never happened, the works. I've spent much of my child bouncing in and out of VA Psyche wards. I've seen what it does to people. I don't want to do that or be the guy giving the order to send people to do that. I'll do my time, maybe become a Captain at most and get out.
I have other much more nefarious plans in store. Global Conquest of the Comicbook Industry and to become the Dark Lord of all Nerdom!
As someone who plays in the personal of a masked clown, would you not say it'd make sense? Besides, in a place where a single kiss can turn a man's heart in a full blown desire for more, a mask is useful for protection. As well as hiding whoever is behind. And protection.
I don't really know if anyone in the Band fits the mold you're looking for. If I wasn't so busy I'd send a Band team I've been thinking of since binging RvB. As it is I have trouble running my own, which sucks as I'm really interested in the Akrid.
And nah S9, as of yet in continuity Transmorphers as a whole are both virtually unheard of and mostly away in their own little cities. If anything the only Transmorpher anyone would possibly see now is Laz or Doc's Terrorcons., and niether are there
Rest easy guys. Hound found his brother. Sorry to make you all worry. Long story short, his brother went bar hopping and his phone died. Hound started to panic after three hours without contact. So we went searching the local spots. Found his brother being attacked by 2 jerks in the parking lot of the last bar we checked. Unbelievable how crazy people can get. Anyways his brother is ok. A bit ruffed up but he'll be fine.
Drunken adventure that ended with Hound doing one of those running jumping superman punches from hell on one of the attackers. Knocked the guy clean out. It was incredible and hysterical all the same time. But yes everything is good. Back to normal procedures!
First thing first! Am I the only one who saw Doc's huckleberry reference? Secondly, I'm not a masochist and neither is Marcus. Marcus just gets into trouble and his wives (mainly Cyndwella) dish out punishments. How does Marcus get into so much trouble you ask? Because I put him in it for shits and giggles.... which means I enjoy getting Marcus getting in trouble. Makes me more a sadist now that I think about it.
@S9. Lastly, are you actually trying to get Aua with Marcus and Samia? If you are I'll swing Marcus back around after he chats with Tirush. Granted, Aua would be more for Sam's benefit than Marcus'.
One: I walk. Two: Respecting your wives isn't obedience, it's just being a good husband. Three: I'm not in servitude. I have three wonderful ladies who spoil me just as much as I spoil them. Lastly: Haters gonna hate.
Two, I agree, repsecting two spoiled sentients being who likely come from royaltly and aren't used to be doing things by themselves while also portraying a short and volatile temper as well as having the ability to wipe one out of existence with a thought isn't obediance. It's literally a hostage/blackmail/ danger close situation.
Three. Yes, you do have three wonderful ladies who you spoil as much as you spoil. Because again, asking someone with an...interesting temper to do something for you is in no way going to go south. Hey ruler of the old desert, may I ask you to massage my feet while feeding me grapes? I'm sure that is in no way in insulting demand to make of you and your high rank of the past. Hey sentient ghost not more used to being serviced by terrified people than servicing them, may I ask of thee to swiftly prepare my meal?
Lastly, ohh, it's not hating. It'Ms genuine worry. Right now, I feel like the only reason you'rfe saying this is because they are burning their potential vengenful gaze at the back of your head and everyone is worried about you.
Well then, let's dam this donnybrook right this skosh.
(Puts on serious cap)
Cyndwella would never ever hurt Marcus, or any human for that matter, who did not threaten her or her family. She loves Marcus and does what she does because she, like all Mamono, adores her husband. She is the way she is because Marcus fell in love with her that way.
And she lost the vast majority of her Void powers when she forsook her ties with the Mori. She is powerful, but not nearly as she was.
(Takes off serious cap, fills it full of gummi bears and hands it to the nearest child)
Aye, doc, but once again, I wasn't trying to go for jabs, really. I think we all know there isn't some sort of sinister link between them beyond playful tamtrums and occasional dispute. I was merely overexaggerating the malicious tendencies one might see at a first glance between the man and his trio. As an old standing fool I'm deeply hurt that you would think I, for even a second, thought this relation they had was one triffle with lies and deceit.
I'd say the only one of Marcus' waifus who might give that kind of impression in public is Cyndwella, and even she is capable of acting reasonably polite in public. If she's treated the way she thinks she deserves, she can be quite cordial. But that doesn't keep her from telling it like it is, or getting under the skin of someone who she thinks deserves it.
Alrighty BT, get Jorge signed up and to bed, we're winding down anywho. I'll get Tirush through the line once Doc and Hound respond there. The Ibrahims, Jagunds, and Forjod's group can either eat with Baku or head to bed. If anyone wants a word with any characters they missed that'll be the time. After that it's to the Hunt.
If anyone needs it I'll get a writeup for the rules of the Hunt, amd I'll also post and put a link to the Band equipment available (and what they use in general), that way everyone can stock up on what they want.
It's the Band Doc, so of course lol. Btw, while I'm sure everyone is ready for the Hunt to begin nobody who's not ready or wants to continue current chats needs to feel rushed through.
As a special note @Jeiel if you happen to swing by bud, you can continue your bits for Ersha and the others as well as chaT with the Gails even if this ends.
@BT, I'm off to bed, so no details for now. Still you only have one round I think Jorge may not like (the "Prey" Round) and it's the biggest chance to break a rule. Round 1 ("Hunt") and Round 3 ("Free-for-All") only have the basic Band rules. Hopefully you'll forgoes rule breaking, as I'm sure you'll enjoy Round 3. So long as you don't try and kill anyone it's a chance to do whatever you want and need to to win. Use a meatshield? So long as you KO them you get the point. Convince a group of order paladins to help you, then betray them later? Go for it!
It is, but who's to say who didn't sign up. The Band doesn't care who signs up, be it Order, Bandits, mamono or no, everyone is free to compete so long as all combatants forfeit all lethal weaponry and use non-lethal substitutes.
Edit: so Jorge will have to leave his weapons in his room, and if he definitely won't use DRS, he'll have to do the whole thing with that weresheep rag, as it's the only non-lethal substitute he has.
The Hunt is a Grand competition that consists of three distinct rounds. Rounds One and Two are team based, where as Round Three is a nearly lawless Free-For-All. I’m going to start with the rules for the Hunt itself, and then put Role Playing guidelines at the bottom.
The primary rules for all three rounds are simple: Rule #1a- no murder or rape. Rule #1b- all lethal weapons are to be stripped from combatants and all armor must either be DRS or coated in a temporary DRS dust film like the arena will be. Those in light armor will be granted DRS pads and studs or a similar treatment. Rule #2- so long as your opponent is conscious you can be as rough as needed so long as it does not break Rule 1 or harm someone unconscious intentionally. Rule #3- Any Golem other mamono with stagnant Demonic Energy reserves must wear a special D/SEG-B charm that will detonate when their energy reaches the minimal threshold for life. Removing the charm at any time results in a disqualification of the remover of the bracelet, and the takedown is thereby rewarded to the one who caused the charm to activate.
The First two rounds start with contestants split between two teams, Red and Blue.
Round One (Red Hunt Round) - This round consists of the Red Team taking the Role of the Hunters, and the Blue team taking the role of Prey. For Red Team, any means may be used to hunt and take down the Prey so long as the Primary Rules are followed. This team will have three hours to take down their Prey. For Blue Team, you are free to use any techniques necessary to avoid or escape your hunters baring a single rule. You may not KO or otherwise incapacitate your hunter(s), only stall and flee. No attacks can stall your hunter(s) for more than fifteen minutes. There are, however, no limitations on the attacks used. Magic, precision striking and equipment usage are fair. For scoring purposes Prey are awarded a team point based on skillful and impressive escapes judged by the crowd and a selection of Judges.
Round Two (Blue Hunt Round) - This round is the inverse of the First, with Blue as Hunters and Red as Prey. The same rules and timeline applies.
These two rounds have two layers of points. The first layer is team scores, with a point awarded for every downed Prey, and every impressive escape. The team with the highest score is the one to move to Round 3. The second layer determines a player’s base score in Round 3. A single point is awarded per takedown only. For example: a harpy and a man make 5 KO’s, with the harpy making 3 and the man making 2; In Round 3 the Harpy starts with 3 points where the man starts with 2. A half point is awarded on an assist. Members of either team with less than one point are not allowed to fight in Round 3
Round 3 (Free-for-All) - This round is the main event. The winning team members of Rounds 1 and 2 will be stationed randomly around the arena, and then turned loose. Any way to win is fair game with the Prime rules being the only law. Points are awarded based on the base score of the KO’d target. For example: Using the harpy and man, the Harpy is worth 3 base points, and the man 2. No matter how many points are gained later, base points are all that is rewarded on a takedown. Example: The man KO’s the harpy, ending up with a score of 5, and is then KO’d by a Minotaur with a base score of 1 and a total score of 2. She will only gain 2 points, leaving her at a total score of 4. Finally, there can be only one winner, so any teams should either agree on who would win in the end, or be aware of their teammates base scores and their own total score.
(Role Player Notes) I’m ready to clarify if any of that was confusing or you think an extra detail is needed. Also, I’m thinking Red team should be the winners, so everyone who’d like their character to make it through all three Rounds is to be there. If everyone thinks rounds 1 and 2 are too complicated to pull off RP wise we can skip them, but we may need to all agree on Base Scores for everyone’s characters. Once we have those set I’ll scatter the participating Band members points in the appropriate spectrums. Finally this is meant to be an epic climax, as well as a chaotic brawl. Everyone is free to do their own thing, make NPC’s for them to take down, team up with, and betray so long as they follow the Prime rules; and feel free to battle amongst yourselves without my direct involvement. Also have fun tweaking the crowd responses of those seated in their characters sections. For those not participating in the fighting I’d appreciate a bit of backup keeping track of the scores.
And here's the link to the special Band equipment. They also sell other things like smoke bombs and DRS throwing knives and other non-lethal equipment you can think of that fits the Dark Souls/Bloodborne mold.
He was a Youtuber who did episodes of Dwarf Fortress: Adventure mode. And I was actually wrong about the towel as I just remembered that it was a turban. Anyway, he managed to slay more baddies using his turban, but his character's death, ironically, came from a grizzly bear after setting a forest on fire.
He also managed to take down a dragon by throwing dirt or clay at it with another character.
Big news everybody! I'm going to be shooting at fires for some time, maybe a week or two who knows. And im getting paid for it too! Bad news is i may not be available for any RP'S innthe forseeable future. Ill keep you guys in the know.
Alrighty fellas, looks like BT getting to shoot fire was well timed. I'm headed off on a cruise, and while I was told there'd be Internet I'd rather let y'all know. So if I don't respond that's what's up (though I do hope I'll get to).
Yup a wedding. I'm having fun but I'm not too crazy about it. It's my sister's wedding and I don't like her husband. He likes to poke way too much fun about how skinny I am. Plus Hound couldn't come because of work.
Hey guys how have you all been? I was barely on in a while, and I have responses to make, so sorry to whoever was left waiting. I'm mentaly drained from RL and it made me really irritable and pissed lately. Damn Ex...
Damn, here I thought I was the hype. Considering I'm a two hundred pound liquor machine that has more personality than half you mama's boys. I joke, I joke. WHATZ UP DOC?! I see Tirush is being all badass as usual.
Now now, Los, no need to be all jelly. I'll give you an intro sometime, too.
And T is just being thrilled with life, Hound. Sometimes you're just so happy you gotta let the world know, and in her case it's an attention getter. She's sending a signal of what she loves, who it belongs to and who not to fuck with. Hopefully she and Kurga will get to meet in person soon, they kinda just missed each other.
I get that, Doc. However a display is still a display. Tirush maybe be attracting too much attention. I hope she realizes she's dealing with Marcus and maaaaaaaaaaybe a certain other badass machine I know.
Bravo Snake. The terminator would be a logical choice. However, I speak of a machine that isn't from the future, nor runs of a power cell. I talk of a "machine" that could bleed us dry and still find room for breakfast! "ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW" TIM CURRY! I joke again, I really mean Armata. Oops, spoilers.
She's not challenging anyone to a generic fight, she's just stating that anyone who messes with her family is in for it. It's a territorial marker. Only, instead of peeing on a hydrant like a doggie, she's setting the sky on fire. And roaring, that too.
I wasn't planning on putting Armata into the Hunt. With his powers it wouldn't be fair to have him zipping around, disappearing, slinging giant fireballs and drinking people's blood. He's more a "boss" fight than a contender fight. The Hunt is definitely better suited for more physical and close quarters characters like BT, Tirush and Hound.
However he would join if he was insulted by a participant or outright challenged. But Ibs, you wanna continue Aurum's convo or are you waiting till S9 is not longer stranded on an island talking TO A GODDAMNED, VOLLEYBALL!? Poor Wilson.
Why you insolent, weak minded dog! How dare you spit that foul garbage at me!? (Marches up and gives Hound a frilly old englishmen's slap.) I have a right mind to slap your wives too, for letting you off your leash! I challenge youuuuuu, to a DEUUULLLLLLLLLLA!
