    Default To Tide Us Over: Story possibilities?

    During Rich's recovery, a lot of us will probably be starving for more OotS laughs and surprises. I realize it's cheesy, but would anyone be interested in throwing together a fanfic thread or two, so we can keep ourselves amused while the Giant's hand is healing? Maybe someone has an idea for a previous adventure the Order might've undertaken before the Xykon/Gate storyline kicked off, or perhaps some amusing anecdote about the OotScribble or one of the bad guys. Perhaps you've based an NPC in a home game on an OotS character, with hilarious results worthy of recounting, or would like to put one of your personal theories (what the MitD is, how Belkar will die, etc) into a written scenario before Rich can Joss or substantiate it. Maybe you've got an already-written fanfic burning a hole in your hard drive, and just haven't had the nerve to circulate it until now?

    It'd be a far cry from the real comic's spectacular gags and captivating storyline, but it'd be better than waiting around for weeks with nothing new at all, and might even provide the Order's esteemed creator with a chuckle or two (if only at how lame some of us are as writers ;-D), while he's healing up. It might also be fun to see whether OotS's characters and humor can carry over into a prose format. Given how many WMGs people on this forum have come up with, over the years, it shouldn't be beyond we fans to match Rich in sheer outrageousness, at least!

    Just an idea. Anyone up for it? If it seems too trite, just say so.

    i would suggest changing VASTLY the subject and NOT referring to the actual story.

    i don't know, OOTS in the real life?
    OOTS's players?
    OOTS playing the Tomb of Horror?
    Stuff like that
    Stay out of the shadows, they bite.


    Check out Camp Archimedes, a (slightly homebrew) mercenary camp full of interesting units. A great addition to any campaign (in my very biased opinion)

    LMAO. I can see it now. A kobold steps out of the darkness. Belkar stabs him in the head, and MitD doesn't notice.

    Kami, not Kame. Kami = God, Kame = Turtle. (Unless you really meant Master Roshi the Turtle Hermit, in which case nevermind.)

    If O-Chul fused with the ghost of Soon Kim, they would become the ultimate paladin Kim-Chul!

    Don't forget about Super Kami Guru.

    Jaime Lannister is the ultimate paladin and don't you forget it.

    I was meaning Kami. Haven't watched DBZ since I was 14 so just be glad I remembered the name .

    If Jamie Lannister is a Paladin then the world of aSoIaF is in more trouble than it already is.

    You mean incest, murder of the liege lord, dislike towards everyone else, pure lust for battle and killing, the occasional disability to follow orders he dislikes, or that he thinks his duty is stupid, the lack of interest to help others, the complete lack of sympathy and compassion for misery and people in need, that he is not honour-bound to do the "right" thing, or that he has to force himself to do his duties for silly kings are perfect Traits of a Paladin?

    I just have to chime in: I do not get it and it think it is a outlandish statement (that has no real twist that makes it funny).

    I assume that as well. As it was repeated a second time it was probably hoped it get picked up, so it must be "something" that is supposed to be really great.

    How does that qualify him to be a good paladin?

    (And yes, the other stuff is probably one of the more silly and nonsensical memes out there)

    eh, it's been done...

    though, it would be interesting to actually see.... hummm....
    78% of all DM's start their first campaign in a tavern. If you're among the 22% who didn't, copy and paste this into your signature and tell us where you DID begin.The players were attacked individually on the road on the way to town by werewolves. To survive, they had to team up then and there without knowing anything about eachother (literally -- all character sheets were completed without other players' knowledge).

    Well, originally it wasn't. It was just me saying random crazy stuff, but if you guys think it has meme potential, let's make this a reality! I wanna be responsible for creating meme.
