It's a pity I think Lanterns are boring in general.

I'd still be keen to try and do another world-build, provided it didn't end up like *shudder* Novaris. (as a note, I did actually retool that setting for my own use, but I'm keeping my baby faaaar awaaaay!)

Got swept under the rug I suppose when the Lanterns came out. I had, I think, two people even notice I had mentioned it as well as the specific ideas I'd had, and one person think I hadn't specified setting ideas.

Neither does Vaarsuvius. There's a thing called artistic license that's useful in this situation. It's better in this situation to add an unmentioned white aura around a character than have his visibility reduced, and the quality of the comic as a result.

Once we figure out the world itself, we can work out the details, but I don't see why not! :smallbiggrin:

Why would there be guilds in a post-apocalyptic world? If anything, there'd be gangs like the raiders, maybe some liberator-esque roving lawbringers, and a whole bunch of lunatic survivors and scroungers living in the odd town made of bits of everything's leftovers. I mean, I guess someone could make a group and call it a guild but the chances of anyone outside their immediate area even having heard of it before are slim to none, and there probably wouldn't even be enough people around to legitimately actually be a guild.

Then again, crazy people.

Edit: interestingly, the only real guild in the fallout world was the Slavers Guild, because it was the only one that was relatively global.

Okay, I looked at the Novaris planning threads (I call them that because that seems to be all you talked about :smalltongue:). What would you say went wrong with it, DL? Once we work that out, we can try and make a proper setting without messing up.

For instance, should we not have many races? Should magic be D&D based? Should I play the king of the world/scrapyard? :smallwink:

I think we started Novaris exactly by solving those questions:smalleek:

Darklord Bright
2010-11-05, 04:39 PM
Yeah, I'm pretty sure we already decided the basic idea of the setting, at least if people would be into a Nuclear Winter setting which focusses on most of the people in the world having gone at least a little kooky from surviving in the post-apocalyptic tundra.

Plus, I don't really want magic and stuff because I'd rather we have at least one non-fantasy plot, and I don't think we ever restricted people to DnD classes anyways. As far as 'races', I'd say normal human races and maybe allow some leeway for mutants.

I'd also say we set this in a world similar to earth but not earth, or at least never specify where anything is or anything about the world before the nukes.

Edit: oh, and Novaris went wrong in that people argued too much to go against the original ideas of the setting after they had been established and pretty much we had some cases of things being decided without consent of the whole. I tried to police what I could, but things kinda fall down when you really stop caring anymore :smallfrown:

I've already covered the answers. I've given the very bare idea, now it needs to be expanded upon. I always believe that groups and characters should be characterized beyond 'classes' and 'races' (hence why I typically frown upon setting which are fantasy kitchen sinks when it comes to races).

Also, what level do we want the tech in our schizotech (Though it's more off a tent-tech situation) to be? Modern day? Renaissance? Futuristic? 1920s? Neither?

Steampunk. Like a mixture of Schizotek and Lockutas. :smalltongue:
And I agree, races can't stand for the character. But races are fun, too, to make and to play. As for classes....well, that's not really applicable here.

Well, I'm pretty sure that as far as tech goes, we'd probably have mostly modern guns and makeshift melee weapons, though it's up to you guys if you'd want the odd laser in there was well. They probably wouldn't be very efficient as weapons, though, since you'd need energy to use them and there's not a lot of that.

Guns in general I'd figure would be around, but used sparingly due to conservation of ammo, so the most common weapons would probably be baseball bats, planks, crowbars, sledgehammers... maybe some crazies who fletch their own hunting bow-and-arrows. No swords or anything like that though, unless you can come up with a good reason why someone would have them (like they raided a museum or something, which is possible).

Most clothes and armour would probably be stitched patchwork, with the odd flak jacket or clothes made of hides of mutated animals. I think in general the tech is low, but still has obvious hints of a modern or post-modern society like in clothes people find and the crumbling buildings and such. People would still wear a lot of the leftover clothes like jackets and things too, especially if it was a permanent winter and they needed to keep warm.

There might be scraps of military who still managed to keep weapons and bullets in production, maybe even vehicles, but I would imagine fuel is hard to come by.

Does that work? :smallsmile:

As well as that, I figure there might be the odd small group with a little bit of tech, but I guarantee you it'd be hard to justify many non-military groups having anything but random tech in their possession. A building or two will probably work, but with the world being kinda destroyed and all, most things would need generators to keep power, and generators need fuel.

I don't think it was specifically Fallout based when this conversation took place


Yeah, I'm pretty sure we already decided the basic idea of the setting, at least if people would be into a Nuclear Winter setting which focusses on most of the people in the world having gone at least a little kooky from surviving in the post-apocalyptic tundra.

Plus, I don't really want magic and stuff because I'd rather we have at least one non-fantasy plot, and I don't think we ever restricted people to DnD classes anyways. As far as 'races', I'd say normal human races and maybe allow some leeway for mutants.
I'd also say we set this in a world similar to earth but not earth, or at least never specify where anything is or anything about the world before the nukes.


The answers to all of them were no, though. I'm asking if they should be yes, if that makes the sensiness.


I've already covered the answers. I've given the very bare idea, now it needs to be expanded upon. I always believe that groups and characters should be characterized beyond 'classes' and 'races' (hence why I typically frown upon setting which are fantasy kitchen sinks when it comes to races).

Kinda makes me wonder if my reading of every single post is overdoing it.

Especially since I do it for about ten FFRPGs as well... :smalltongue:

They'd probably be a pretty major faction if they were able to control and keep an in-tact building out in the lawless tundra. It's certainly possible, but I'm not sure what others think.

I was personally thinking of a similar idea where there was a gang controlling a supermarket-turned-fortress where they routinely had to send people out to search for fuel, and defend against raiders and such...

All that needs to be decided is what the plot's about. What will it have established? Will it have anything established before people post it here? Etc.

Maybe....*craziness ensues*
There are these weird mutant animals that look very strangelike that were created from animals that scientists were experimenting on with nuclear radiation right when the holocaust occured. They reacted strangely, and now they're becoming pretty common.

Wait, sorry. That's unhelpful, and a bit silly. Let me try again:
Okay, so this camp, they find a patch where there are some plants growing. And that's really, really rare, and hardly seen before in these quantities. As the area begins to slowly get greener, though, a bunch of Bad Guys, who have control over the only other such patch, grow concerned the world is recovering. This means they'll lose their monopoly, and with it all their power. So they decide the patch, where a small group is forming, has to go.

It's also a bit silly, but I hate it less. Still, it may alter the genre of the game in a major way, so it may not be a good idea.

The Scientist made his stitchpunks as the war was ending, among the last humans alive. Given that this is a nuclear winter, a similar situation would have the stitchpunks be around the entire time human survivors have been in the bunkers, perhaps made by a scientist who was too busy making them to notice the bunker alerts.

They've probably gone a bit batty or anti-social depending on their experiences as a result, likely having been isolated or in small groups for decades.

You could probably throw in some technobabble about his inner mechanisms containing a special mechanism that creates liquid oxygen from the air that he breathes, and then the liquid oxygen is pumped down one arm with a pressurization system, where it is set on fire then sprayed out a metal tube. Basically, he'd have a flamethrower built into his arm. :smallsmile:

It's magic, you're using the tech to explain away a magical weapon so you can get around the 'no magic' rule to use it.

I don't see how adding "stitchpunks" would do anything but lose depth. This is about humans trying to survive in a post apocalyptic tundra, many of which have gone bonkers from having to survive. Adding Stitchpunks changes the entire theme of the setting.

Okay then, in that case we don't have to have the "magical" flamethrower, because it's your setting.
EDIT: I hope that you allow the stitchpunks though... :smallfrown:

And it would add depth because there would be two levels of the story going on, the humans trying to survive the environment, and the stitchpunks trying to survive the wild animals (which, in their opinion, includes the humans).

It loses depth and distracts from the plot.

For instance, the plot as it stands is about the struggle of humans to survive, battling human nature, embracing it, or going insane. It's about human interaction in a post-nuclear world where society is gone. The reason there are no other races is because they're an excuse to avoid giving someone good character and explaining it away with "They're an elf". Everyone has their reasons for what they do, and that's what I hope this will be about at its core, even if not all the characters are serious (and I hope they aren't!).

It's not about Stichpunk Organisation Thirteen fighting mutated rats.

Fair enough. So what about if we had the macro-scale humans-trying-to-survive plot, and a micro-scale stitchpunks-awakening-and-trying-to-survive-on-a-different-scale plot? The stitchpunks would basically be tiny humans, with no special abilities that you haven't approved.

Not to bring anybody down, but I have an overwhelming feeling this post-nuke story isn't going to last long.

That being said, I think I'm going to try and join it anyway if I can find the time (time enough to make two comics, since I also intend on continuing ABR Corps). It could be interesting. T'was thinking of having alternate universe versions of the Qs. Realistic versions.

Quin Redd, a space program major and his best friend and roomate Quinn Grene, a civilian bodybuilder and ex-electrician. Both of whom used to be quite wealthy individuals but are now trying to survive as best they can with all of their possessions destroyed or stolen. While Quinn Grene tries to remain positive during this crisis, Quin Redd's personality (and perhaps sainity) is very noticably taking a heavy toll.

These versions of the Qs will probably be a less "jokey" as well. I might post pictures of them later, too.

Darklord Bright, if I may ask, how did you make the snow falling texture? It looks interesting and I am curious. While I can guess, I can also ask, so here I am, doing just that.

Anyway, I have more so been looking at the ABR thread with pictures, and only recently read through a bit of the discussion thread again as I saw a new one being made again. (Sheesh, XXXIV, while the one with the pictures is only at VIII, haha.) But hey, if you do need a goal for the plot, you could go with something cliché like "we heard a message of people needing help, who in turn were looking for warmer land and heard about it, being somewhere far off.." Or another bunker of supplies or something.

Edit: Also, why not put the picture you have on the ABR picture thread too? Would be nice.. because it can get easily lost in here.

Yeah. I actually believe that realism and ABR don't really mix well. I'm willing to give it a try, but I dubt it'll last long before people get too scared their ideas will be seen as stupid. But that's just my prediction.


I hope not....

Well, I don't plan for them to be completely serious. They're still Qs. But I will see if I can expand my horizons and write characters who are going through serious struggles and try to handle them as best they can. They will seem a lot more serious than their mainsteam counterparts, but they'll have their funny moments, hopefully.

My recommendation is to allow the members of the plot, making the characters, come to the goal themselves. I think that might make people more attached to completing the goal if they help come up with it. The start should just be something simple to set things up.

FFF I think is a great example. It started off as a floating fish trying to get laid. Then that girl he was hitting on tries to take over the world. Than somebody else introduces the Sovices and so on and so fourth, building ideas on top of ideas until it's a pretty epic plot.

Only thing wrong with this idea is that it leads to a lot of side plots. But I think that may be part of the fun.

Okay, so this camp, they find a patch where there are some plants growing. And that's really, really rare, and hardly seen before in these quantities. As the area begins to slowly get greener, though, a bunch of Bad Guys, who have control over the only other such patch, grow concerned the world is recovering. This means they'll lose their monopoly, and with it all their power. So they decide the patch, where a small group is forming, has to go.

From what I, a completely impartial third party viewer, can tell, yes.

After all, you should never need to play a race to play a character.

And as for mutations, you'd need to be exposed to radiation for that.
And that's fairly deadly even in small doses. On the scale to actually mutate you? Radiation poisoning. Or instant death as your more complicated organs boil and fail, and then-
Well, you get the idea. Almost certain death for the possibility of a mutation that will probably just be a hideous bulge. That will also kill you.

Depending on how realistic we're treating Radiation, of course.

If we're treating it as a bit less... super-deadly, then I'd suggest only very minor, non-useful mutations. Otherwise everyone will want one!
Which is kind of not the point of mutation. :smalltongue:

People dont mutate from being exposed to radiation. Generally you don't mutate at any point in your life after birth. That's not how mutation works. Mutation is a change in the DNA that differentiates an individual from the parents. So radiation-based mutation comes from previous generations being exposed to radiation. With multiple generations having suffered corruption to their genome you can eventually end up with some sort of hideous little goblin creature. It's massively unlikely but not impossible.

Ah, alright. I assume we were talking about specifically radiation-caused mutation after birth, hence the whole "yeah, you'd die" thing I had going there. (I'm looking at you, Spiderman!)

Anyway! Hideously deformed mutant goblin creature would be...

Quickly killed, I'd imagine.

And if one person gets to play mutant goblinoid, then the doors fly open for all the one-in-a-gazillion-billion chance life forms that people are bound to want to play with, and we'd end up with something representing a mutant fashion show instead of a comic.

If, and I do stress the if, we really need some sort of horrible mutated monster thing, I would suggest we have only one.
And that it be an NPC, obviously.

Because shooting someone else's character in the face for being ugly isn't likely to garner friendship and hugs. :smalltongue:

Yes. Spiderman is not a mutant. Because if you change after birth that would be a metamorphosis. The teenage "mutant" ninja turtles should actually be called teenage metamorphic vaguely defined martial technique turtles. They're awesome nonetheless :smallbiggrin:

Okay then no hideous little gremlin mutant for me. I guess a human will do.

Are you sure the word can't mean more than one thing? I was pretty sure that cells mutate quite often (otherwise we wouldn't develop new traits no matter what since we would have only what our ancestors had, considering my hair colour appeared out of nowhere a good deal of millenia ago I sincerely doubt it :smalltongue:) and that metamorphosis was basically puberty but faster and with a fancier name.

But I might be wrong :smallsmile:

For that, a phosphodiester bond between pentose and the nitrogen base would need to be cut. It's a condensation reaction so it's not as weak as the hydrogen bonds joining bases.
Then, the cell would probably not split itself enough to compete with the original's genome, or to even make any effect at all. And it wouldn't be passed onto the bloodline.

I'm guessing.

Okay....what if my character is a hideous little man. Radiation during birth mutated his face, so his mouth is very, very wide. So in a lot of respects, he resembles goblins, especially because he's not very book smart and has a bad grasp on speech.

Is that okay? He could also be inbred.

your eventual hair color was pre-programmed in your genes, if none of your parents or other ancestors hadf it you might be a mutant. If your genes are changed after your birth not much would happen to you, except maybe regenerative tissue looks a bit different after healing or you get a tumor. It could also cause a change of hair color over time, but to change your genetic code once you are developed is something incredibly improbable. Especialy if it were for more than just a few cells. And even if it happened you wouldn't be a mutant, because science said so. :smallannoyed:

Well, if those can be changed then in theory the rest of you could as well (needs more radiation, though) it would just take those seven years for the changes to evolve. Right?

Which means Spiderman was changed several years before the spider bit him! That explains everything!

Two extra arms, and mutates into a giant spider creature as well.

An alternate version of Spidey that was not cured and actually changed his costume to fit the extra arms appeared in the episode about Madame Web's origin.

Nope, most of your body does get renewed. That's why we all die eventually. So even if you changed the genetic code in every single one of them, nothing would really change.

MR know what happened to Arachniddude

Errr, here's the thing, Master Ranger. I support your, and everybody else's, right to make whatever comics they want for this plot.

But one thing that's not recommended, for ANYBODY, is revealing where the rings (of any colour) came from. It's not that you can't do it, per se, it's just heavily frowned upon by me.

So I don't want your character saying "oh! NOT again!" because he knows what the black ring business is about. Have your character say that line for some entirely unrelated reason, instead. I'll leave the justification to your judgement, but I just wanted to give you a heads up about my little guideline I preferred everybody follow.

Also, a related topic, your comic making has improved, but here's another piece of friendly advice: comics are better when they are...longer than one panel. And show an event that contributes to the story in some way. Just making one panel saying "oh! NOT again!" with your character alone probably isn't going to be acknowledged by any other comic makers.

Usually a mutation doesn't become obvious before fetal stage. If a change actually happened to the stem cell dna after conception that would be called an octopus baby, I guess.

I stumbled across my old Bright comics. There was such an innocence about them that I miss in ABR as it stands, from before I got dragged up in all this argument nonsense.

So I set about trying to figure out what it was I loved about them so much, and ended up making a... spiritual successor, if you will, to the original Darklord Bright.

But I find myself unsure of how to proceed.

My recommendation for the character? The spiritual successor to the original, fun, cute Darklord Bright? Either save him for when FFFR gets another burst of life, or incorperate him into ABR Corps somehow (he doesn't even really have to be a Lantern, if you don't want, though it's preferred).

I don't want to toot my own plot or anything, but I'm nostalgic about the good ol days of ABR as well and a big part of ABR Corps is that I'm trying to recapture that spontaneity and fun.

(NO SERVER YOU ARE NOT BUSY STOP LYING TO ME)

Ahem.


Anyway, what was I gonna say?

Oh yeah, Bright.

Well, first of all I think the comics he made already speak for themselves in terms of allowing a non-Lantern character.

Now, Goblin Scribe (Who I am just meeting now, I believe. Hello!), I'm sure you could have made a similarly non-Lantern character, if you had really wanted. ABR is not a dictatorship and no-one gets a final say on anything. (Unless the mods show up and say someth- {kpenguin only counts when he posts in red, shut up} -ing)
However, a Lantern character is both easier, already firmly established in the setting and a fairly broad array of characters could become Lanterns. The need to have a non-Lantern character in this Lantern-based game should be...
Negligible.

Now, Bright over there is an experienced comic maker, and has been in ABR for quite a while, true.
This is not why people are so quick to allow him into their plots.

Take a look at his characters.
Any one of them will do.
Find one, bring it up front and show it off.

You see, DLB's sense of humour, coupled with a great understanding of how to make a character act and feel real, are well documented.
Essentially, we know he can take an outlandish or weird character concept and make it work in almost any situation. He really is brilliant.

(And, because he's probably reading this and swelling up his ego, I'm going to point out that Canada sucks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFs5l9K--7M). :smalltongue: )

For instance, he once played a character who could not speak. At all.
I cannot imagine the restraint it took not to have at least a thought bubble of words, or some other form of communication other than frantic waving of the arms.


The point is, nobody's doling out favouritism here.
The idea of Darklord Bright (the character, not the person) being made for this new plot is just terribly exciting.

I for one can't wait to watch the hilarity ensue.

Now, Bright over there is an experienced comic maker, and has been in ABR for quite a while, true.
This is not why people are so quick to allow him into their plots.

Take a look at his characters.
Any one of them will do.
Find one, bring it up front and show it off.

You see, DLB's sense of humour, coupled with a great understanding of how to make a character act and feel real, are well documented.
Essentially, we know he can take an outlandish or weird character concept and make it work in almost any situation. He really is brilliant.

(And, because he's probably reading this and swelling up his ego, I'm going to point out that Canada sucks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFs5l9K--7M). :smalltongue: )

For instance, he once played a character who could not speak. At all.
I cannot imagine the restraint it took not to have at least a thought bubble of words, or some other form of communication other than frantic waving of the arms.


The point is, nobody's doling out favouritism here.
The idea of Darklord Bright (the character, not the person) being made for this new plot is just terribly exciting.

I for one can't wait to watch the hilarity ensue.

Perfect explanation is perfect. Though Canada DOESN'T SUCK! :smallfurious:

That video says otherwise! And it is clearly correct. :smalltongue:

...Also New Zealand is just Australia for sissies who don't want to die.
Which, to be fair, sounds pretty appealing. =P
But fine, only the French parts of Canada suck.

Don't trust anybody with enough sanity to put together a video.

Or Lord of the Rings fans.
Jingle bells, jingle bells...
French Canada is the best part, they have the funny rules and names, English Canada only have maple syrup.

It's just taking longer than I expected because I busy applying for a job and doing homework.

But yeah. I'll eventually join the plot, too.

I'm making an ABRC comic with one of the worst puns ever devised and a rather blatant reference.

So yeah, you know it's crap :smalltongue:

The only thing helping this one out is that the character doesn't realize it's a pun. :smallsigh:

Oi! I am procrastinating (Or however you spell it) about making a comic.

I would be making one if I hadn't gotten two new Dragon Quest/Final Fantasy games and some mangas.

At least that's the story I'm sticking to :smalltongue:

No thanks, I have one, it just wasn't plugged in because my laptop was on my lap, and therefore using a mouse with it would have been difficult.
Save your mouse for someone who needs it!

Sorry. :smallfrown:

But surely there is room for two empty guns in a world of Endless Winter and constant monologues!

Besides, who's gonna think you stole the idea from me?
Far more likely is that I came from the future, having finally figured out how to channel the life force of babies into time travel, and stole your idea, from the future, in order to annoy you.

Okay - That was one of those archive binges that only really leave two questions open: "(How) Can I get in on this?" and "Do I need a backstory comic?" :smallbiggrin:

1) Make a comic.
2) Not unless you want to :smalltongue: Ketham doesn't have a backstory comic.*



*He has a backstory but i have no way to make a comic out of it without making myself feel sick - i always hated stories where the bad guy suddenly decides to be a good guy... Don't give me that look, i never claimed he was doing a good job of being a good guy :smallannoyed:

We noticed.

Magneto, head of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants is doing a better job of being a good guy!
Note: The evil in "Brotherhood of Evil Mutants" is generally not used by the members, because that would be stupid.
Also, does anyone know how to spell Antidisestablishmentarianism? I can't seem to figure it out. See what I did there?
