    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.

    See, that's all well and good, and I'm glad everyone's having fun thinking of ideas - but we still need a goal for the plot so I can try and make the first comic to set things off! After that we can be well on our way!

    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.

    Too soon to destroy a character? No. Don't worry about that. You're comic is valid and accepted as canon, as all ABRC comics will be.

    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.

    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.

    This is probably the simplest idea, although we'd still have to think of how to start it off, possibly several groups fighting over supplies, land, or the last sources of power. Or it could simply be people trying trying to start a life in this new world, and stumbling over... something

    I dunno, I was thinking of calling it "Endless Winter/EW" because it really isn't related to FFF, but the only other "endless winter"s I can find are ski-related.

    Also, as soon as we've got a title, I'm officially posting the intro and my first comic.

    F3 also implies correlation to FFF, which it doesn't have.

    To be fair, my character isn't actually serious. He's a bit of a mixture of Jayne Cobb, Francis from Left 4 Dead, and my own designs.

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    If you like, it can be a short, ugly human.
    I imagine there will be no short supply of those.

    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 ) and that metamorphosis was basically puberty but faster and with a fancier name.

    But I might be wrong

    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.

    Goblins chew and goblins bite,
    Goblins cut and goblins fight,
    Stab the dog and cut the horse,
    Goblins eat and take by force!

    Chase the baby, catch the pup!
    Bonk the head to shut it up!
    Bones be cracked, flesh be stewed,
    We be goblins! You be food!
