    Default ABR Discussion Thread XXXII - Imperfectly Rebooted

    Banana Bubbles Laptop Trolley
    Welcome to the 32nd ABR Discussion Thread!
    The 31st can be found here

    Because we used to burn through new ABR threads so quickly, we created the Discussion thread. All banter goes here, and all comics and non-canon kills go in the main thread. (see line below)

    Avatar Battle Royale: Avatarmageddon is the current thread. Post artwork there.

    The ABR backup thread, is used in the event of Giantitp becoming untenable due to server issues or otherwise.

    Be sure to visit the ABR IRC channel at irc://dalnet/AvatarBattleRoyale.
    Visit the ABR IRC Channel if you wish to hear us talk about boobs and watch Tiffanie kick Victernus out of the chatroom over and over.

    Random curiosity question is random.

    Been looking through the FI comics in the art thread out of boredom. Having some difficulties figuring out where everyone is. I noticed one or two people are in Merinas. (Skimmer and what I assume to be Kumo's characters)

    But I'm not really sure about everyone else.

    ( I haven't been following the threads. Sue me)

    Actually, one of those Qs (the green-shirted one) has joined the others on the Citadel. The comics I showed where he was in Skornbail with other Q take place before the rest of the dudes leave for Merinas.

    Also, Fin, The backstory comic Endless is no longer active. Just thought I should let you know so you can change it.

    Fin, I know you're relatively new, but when I was around, we generally linked to the new thread from the old one, for convenience. That's because some people (myself included)in ABR don't watch the Fancomics forum.

    Also, i think Fin was here before but left for a long long time... don't remember where it was said, if at all.

    Protestation. I was not lazy, but there really isn't any way for me to see there's a new thread unless somebody tells me. I always provide a link if I see the thread (before the genius change in thread creation, that was fairly common), it seems fair for others to do the same. Or at least mention it.

    About the Special Tactics Peacekeepers argument, even though Darklord Bright took the words right out of my mouth, I just want to say that I when I first created them, I never wanted them to be unbeatable god-killing machines or anything of that sort, but rather a force that proves a challenge to the main characters.

    When the ALF PCs* encounter them, they should not be simple mooks to be swatted like flies, but worthy opponents that necessitate wits, cunning, hard work and sometimes just pure luck to bring down, hopefully making the PCs look like "badasses" at the same time (just like in Threeshades' excellent comics, which I find to be one of the greatest scenes as of yet in FI). In brief, STPs are not invincible gods of war, but they're not cannon fodder either.

    And just like their names say, they should use tactics other than simply running in a straight line and shooting at people. Ambushes, flanking, grenades, chemical weapons and retreats are all part of their arsenal.

    *here meaning characters directly owned by someone

    You can just click on the Fancomics subforum link and see if there's a new thread in less than 3 seconds.

    Certainly. And if I know of a new thread, as I did a few minutes ago, then that's all well and good. But we went at least a day before the new thread came up. Am I supposed to be refreshing every few minutes during that time? I could, but I think it seems to make more sense for somebody to just post on the old thread alerting everyone to the presence of a new one. Not even a link is necessary. It's just quicker for all involved, and takes about 10 seconds.

    Unfortunately, new threads need time for moderator approval. Until it gets that there is no thread to which I can provide a link. I was offline when this one got it and you all seem to have found it just fine without me.

    Sweet of you to notice, to be honest I have been knocking about the Playground for... *checks* wow, nearly three years. I briefly surveyed ABR when FI was still mostly an idea in Mask's head then had to cool off my time here due to life commitments, but I am back in a full capacity now and that fact has no plans on changing.

    My mistake there? That's irony. My mistake, I forgot about the change for about 3 seconds then mentioned it myself.
