My friend’s mom thought D&D was about studying witchcraft, but really we were studying math, probability, medians and means, in order to learn the right way to read a d4 and a d8 to simulate a d32 with a linear curve. (From Gary Gygax’s AD&D Dungeon Masters Guide, TSR, 1979.)
Q:do you happen to have a handy dandy guide for making Cucumber Quest OCs?
Holy crap you can legally stat up Biketaurs in this game
I’ve been reading a pen and paper RPG called Technoir, and while looking through the item rules I just realized all the crazy shit you can do with them.
The way items work is that they are just a name: Assault Rifle, Cyber-Arm, Cycle, etc. All the effects of an item are in its tags: Things like Laser-Sight, Loud, Strong, Scoped, Silenced, Retractable cable, Heat masking (fools heat detectors. Good for stealth-suits), etc.
You can add a tag to an item for a cost, and as long as that tag makes sense for that item: IE you can’t make a Scoped Cyber-Hand, or a Loud jumpsuit. One of the tags defined in the book is Implant. What Implant does is allow you to implant that item as a cyber-part. A Pistol with Implant can be an arm-gun, or a Robocop style retractable hip-holster, Implant armored vest would give you armor plating in your skin, etc.
So, what if you add Implant to a vehicle? Like, say… a motorcycle?
Guinan: [Data]’s proved his value to you.
Picard: In ways I cannot begin to calculate.

Why Starfleet can’t make a robot that doesn’t develop sentience and free-will I’ll never know. Nope, let’s just skip to hard-light holograms, that’s a lot easier. Oh wait, they still enslave them even though they’re literally just as sentient as Data so what the fuck.
I guess the lesson learned is that Voyager sucks. The more you know.
Well, I can recognize Harry (Though he’s way too handsome), and I’m pretty sure that’s Carlos in the back, but I have no idea who those two people in front are, but from the cloaks I’m guessing new characters. Possibly trainee wardens, which means this is def. pre-Changes. Fun!
