Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting CLOSED

By the by, I'll leave it to you Jab as to the veracity about Adrien's statements about where his grandfather and Uncle Jacques live. Them knowing enough about French regions to actually name them is surreal enough to be funny. Whether you want them to actually be able to truly distinguish accents, i...

Re: Jabverse- The Victory League (IC)

(OOC: I knew that's what you meant, and that's what I rolled. As it happens Adrien's Insight and his Deception are both 4+. Based on what I rolled, I'm thinking Adrien can tell these guys lied about not being in the Hillbilly gang, but thinks they were sincere about not fighting ninjas. However, th...

le Petit Hercule deception check: 1D20+4 = [15]+4 = 19 1D20+4 = [7]+4 = 11 The three men eye you suspiciously and impatiently, but gasp at the term "redskin".

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting CLOSED

Assessing the situation, he saw a short, stocky man trying to look normal entering one of the old condos. He assumed that was Le Petite Hercule, a hero he had come into contact with a couple of years ago on one of his last assignments. Strong as an ox, stout of heart but seems to have some daddy is...

Ha!
I wish.
Sadly Canadian history was kind of glossed over. I remember us going into the industrial revolution and American history, but Canadian history was sparse.
I know someone who insists that "Canadian Independence Day" falls on the same day as his birthday: 15 July.

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting CLOSED

And I got that lovely country lesson of finding the carcass of the cow my dad bought (against my mother's wishes, one of their fights that I remember well) that I had to help feed and such after school hanging from the tree in our yard one day. I thought the phrase was "hung like a horse", not "hun...

Re: My LEGO Stuff

Did you find pieces that had the red legs and yellow boots and red and yellow arms?

I like the double cape; I realised immediately what you were going for. It looks a little big, but that can hardly be helped.

Re: The picyune details of Ken's reasoning after Adrien left HuMayne.

No one answered Adrien's question, and no one has chosen to follow up on that potential lead. But if that voice hadn't said anything, Adrien would be ordering a beer in Mike's. Rosa had asked that if something was said over comms before she switched over to please repeat it. That's the reason I had...

le Petit Hercule The man faces you via the still-ajar door- he acts confused and nervous at first, but at the very mention of the word "Ninja". "NINJAS! WHO IN THE HELL TOLD YOU ABOUT NINJAS!!

The picyune details of Ken's reasoning after Adrien left HuMayne.

I stated quite clearly in the first post after leaving the HuMayne building that Adrien was keeping his nose in a book. In the same post, I added an out of character statement that I didn't know how we were traveling, I mentioned several options. And I said which would be Adrien's choice if he gets ...

Re: Favorite Bad Movie and why

I'm old. There are a number of bad movies I'd seen before they got the MST3K treatment. Like the Spanish super hero extravaganza Supersonic Man.

Re: Jabverse- The Victory League (IC)

le Petit Hercule Making note of Harry's truck , Adrien had a thought. He moved to the edge of the defunct petting zoo. He tried peering through the opening in the fence, and tried to look for how many of the buildings were still standing, and if they were the kind of buildings he was expecting. He ...
