Re: Ronin Army Forums Shut Down For Good

lol, well apparently even mentioning WHY BatgirlIII was banned was not cool, because RPG.net permabanned me for "Supporting GamerGate" by repeating what she said to get banned. I was just laughing about how and why she got in trouble, as she was ignorant of GamerGate itself! From what I glimpsed, y...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Indigenous American superheroes are somber, spiritual people, who mourn the environmental destruction of the planet. Someone forgot to tell this to Kellysue Amiotte, a wise-cracking smartass who's entirely focused on the here and now, and who responds to the sight of litter by slamming it into the ...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

In 2011, when she was fifteen years old, her father made the difficult decision that she had to be sent to the private school managed by Exelion in Cardiff. Just how an apparently mundane financier knew about the supposedly secret academy is something he's never deigned to explain. Regardless, whil...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

The situation is set up for a group of capable PCs to unravel, as opposed to the much more entrenched forces of villainy elsewhere in the world. And who knows? Maybe their actions against The Combination set off a chain reaction that begins to dislodge the other forces of villainy as well. Like I d...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Not just one, but now at least TWO weak links in the chain? Truly smart PCs could get them both to turn and set off a chain reaction leaving the whole operation falling apart. Which come to think of it, how else to beat a grifter other than cutting a Gordian knot through brute force? Beat them at th...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

She was less enthused when he also had her take control of the prostitution trade, but has run it rather well, most notably joining forces with Akane to take out a serial killer who was, predictably, preying on the working girls. It was just disgusting, particularly the way that the filthy harlots ...

Re: BBC:What if Hillary Clinton had become president?

Sci-fi master William Gibson's novel Agency is set partly in a world where Hillary is president and Brexit never happened. To be fair most mainstream media accounts already read like they are written by science fiction authors, writing about an alternate reality. Sure as heck the mainstream media i...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

In 2009, while having a smoke in one of St. Louis back alleys and privately grousing about how his take of the most recent job he'd pulled had been wholly inadequate, Selvon chanced upon something that would change his life. Further down the alley, a young man in a costume dropped out of the sky an...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Xenia's biggest issue is trying to figure out who set Leah up in 2013. (Leah claims not to care, but that's ridiculous.) She thinks there might be a connection between that incident and whatever it was that caused Railgun to have a psychotic break and try to kill the Blue Bolt, as well as a few oth...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Ok, you have got to tell us about how Britain ended up fascist (more so than usual) and whether the Power Company and/or Argus are planing to do something about it.

The twist? Crowley's shape-shifting ability isn't magical in nature at all.

Luke Skywalker and Lara Croft, now that's a pairing I never expected.

Also, did Logan ever reestablish contact with his birth family in Arizona?

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Until then, she's made it known through various discreet channels that she can solve various problems that people have, as long as they give her a chance to frame the situation in a way that her darling idiot will find plausible. He honestly thinks that a private eye normally gets cases like this a...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

So Pedro is doing his level best to make sure that no one knows that he's in love with Victor, and would without hesitation choose him over the mission every single time. It's a one-sided love, as Victor identifies as asexual, but Pedro believes that this is the result of his conditioning by the th...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

The whole Stardust fiasco is what led to the creation of Argus, isn't it?
