If you ever need the Defenders drawn as ponies or the cast of Doctor Who, I know where to hook you up.

Please don't want those things.

That sound so absurd. I should run the idea based on that alone.

Pretty sure that was actually not only a thing that exists, but was a pretty straight shoot affair as well. The history of women and wrestling, much like the history of everything and wrestling, is both older and stranger than you might expect.

You know, thinking of all these ideas, I think I'll settle for running a MH game centered on an all girl academy setting, ages 15-17. The school is prestigious, established back during WW2 and it's graduates often move on to greater, better futures.

Once I solidify the setting a bit more, recruitment will be incoming.

Death, but with a gun



So I picked up Tabletop Simulator for a lark, because I had money and I thought why not, and found that it has loads of games that I really wanted to play, but couldn't, because they weren't available on Vassal or similar programs.

Would Pick-Up games be appropriate for this? Because I really want to get the urge to play board-games out of me.

I don't see why not, it would be no different than requiring players to have their own game books for online play, and usually cheaper too, since Steam frequently discounts it.

Blackbird Dreaming may actually be the longest continuous work of fiction in human history. I'm not sure, but, amazingly enough, it definitely is in the running.

If published as a single-volume novel it would probably be the second- or third-largest. Then you've got larger multi-volume works like the Hakkenden, which is supposedly 38 million words long.

They're using a warhammer system, which is a roll-under d100.

If you roll higher than your skill in something, you fail.
If you roll a 00, then you critical fail
If you critical fail when dealing with chaos magics and warp-twisted poo poo, nine times out of ten bad poo poo happens

Normal psychic phenomena is poo poo like plants withering or animals becoming spooked, with the occasional bit of insanity or corruption.

If you roll Above a 75 you roll on the perils of the warp table. Which can summon demons, make it rain blood, cause the psyker to explode, or turns him into a daemonhost. You can occasionally get away without permanent damage but only occasionally.

I don't remember the thread, but years ago someone had a story about their psyker casting a normal spell, rolling three critical failures on it, and turning into a gigantic hulking demon that ate the rest of the party effortlessly.

In the thread, however, I don't think anything bad happened. I'm pretty sure the GM just treated it as a normal flubbed roll and moved right along.

critical failure is not actually a thing in 40k systems, i don't know why everyone thinks it is. i'm also not a big fan of the "haha you rolled badly once now everyone dies!!" school of play; instead, the flubbed roll has wasted most of a combat drug they were going to study afterwards, and has resulted in an enraged combat-drug-ridden scrunt losing his mind and getting into his Sentinel

i was kinda hoping that those playing along at home would notice that the messed-up corpse is not that of a Nurgle guy, via the expedient of me having the party psyker discovering and stating "this doesn't smell of Nurgle", but w/e

My one experience playing a 40K game had a psyker get a critical fail or something. The psyker let loose a hurricane of pure destruction which killed us all. So yeah, I hear about critical fails in 40k, I expect very bad things to happen.
