    Discuss The Ultimate RPG

    [color=#b0000b][size=1]If you had your druthers, what would your ultimate RPG be? What's the setting? What's the tone? What number of players, for you, would be perfect? I'm not asking for your general preferences, here. I don't want to hear "anywhere from four to seven players, depending on who they are." I don't care if you're interested in "anything with a good story." I don't want a summary of your RPG history. This isn't about what you'll [i]settle[/i] for. This is about you?dreaming, designing, and describing your [i]perfect[/i] RPG. Think about it?what's your the genre of your ideal game? Fantasy? Noir? Steampunk? Science Fiction? Normal fiction? Mafia? Horror? Mystery? Comedy? Post-apocalyptic? Dystopian? Parody? What's the setting? Another planet? Ships in space? Feudal Japan? Feudal Europe? The Digital World? Meteo City? Island, labyrinth, haunted house, carnival, boarding school, the year 3100? Who are the characters? Humans? Monsters? Mutants? Cyborgs? Animals? Anthros? Werewolves, vampires, zombies, pirates, smugglers, Egyptians, aliens, angels, demons, thieves, soldiers, assassins, a motley crew of travelers? What is the goal? Revenge? Survival? Adventure? Escape? Saving the world? What is the perfect number of people to tell this story? Why? Is it fast-paced? Slow and easy? Chapter system? Is it linear? Are there flashbacks? Parallel stories? Tell me. Be specific. Remember: this is [i]perfection[/i]. There are no grey areas.[/color][/size]

    Old Cameras

    [quote name='Shy'][size=1]I'll check out Urban Outfitters. I bought my brother a camera with a fish eye lens from UO a few Christmases ago, and his major complaint was that film was really expensive and hard to find. You could get the cameras pretty easily, but once you used up the film that came with it you were in trouble.age cameras as decor around our apartment. The Brownie makes a pretty bitchin' bookend, if I do say so myself. -Shy[/size][/QUOTE][size=1]Hm, what kind of camera? I'm guessing it took 120 film? You can jury-rig a lot of spool film cameras to use 35mm film. I've done it once or twice with my [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana_camera]Diana[/url], but can't vouch for the results (as the film is still sitting somewhere, lost and undeveloped, in my apartment). There are [url=http://www.flickr.com/groups/sprocket_holes/]groups on Flickr (link) [/url]that can get you started, though.[/size]

    Old Cameras

    [quote name='Shy'][size=1]I've looked all over my little state and I haven't been able to find any. Most of the film would actually be expired by now, anyway, but if you want to pick up some 600 brand film for me and send it my way that would be awesome. You know I'm good for it. -Shy[/size][/QUOTE][size=1]I'll have a look around. Sometimes expired film works. (Sometimes it doesn't, and that's sad, but still kind of charming.) Also, I think I've seen 600 packfilm (maybe from The Impossible Project?) at Urban Outfitters. I wouldn't normally recommend shopping there, but again, maybe worth a shot? I was totally bummed when they announced that they'd stop making polaroid film. It's just to much fun, you know? Polaroid combines the instant gratification of digital with the wonderful tangibility of analog, and it's a shame that it's so hard to find film now. I've started using 35mm film, which is fun in theory, but. . . I've shot probably a dozen rolls in the last two years, and only had two of them developed. They get left in cameras and forgotten about, or the film canisters get lost in backpacks or boxes. I always poke around the camera sections of thift stores (the Savers by me has almost a whole shelf!), and the number of Polaroid cameras has skyrocketed in the last six months. I'd usually see one or two at a time, but I was there the other day and had to sift through almost a dozen of them, just to get to the other stuff.[/size]

    Old Cameras

    [quote name='Shy'][size=1]I'm still waiting on film. The Polaroid film for my specific brand of camera is sold out at the moment, but hopefully in the next month I can order some. -Shy[/size][/QUOTE][size=1]If that's actually the camera you have, it looks like it would take any old 600 packfilm that's still around. I still see it sometimes at Walmart/Walgreens/Target type places. It's about $15/pack here, but it might be more where you are (if there's any left). Worth taking a peek in some shady drugstores, though, if it'll let you take pictures before next month![/size]

    Art Beach Commission colours

    [quote name='Yann']With the colour flats I didn't notice but now with the completed image I'm wondering whether I should have made the flowers a different colour to cut down on the abundant blue/green in the image a bit. The character colours were all decided by the client but I had free reign over the background and environment, what do you think? [/quote][FONT="Georgia"]I agree with you there. A little dash of orange in the flowers would help pull this together into something a little strong than it is right now. It's neat to see the tone study, too.[/FONT]
  17. [quote name='Allamorph'][FONT=Calibri]There are new games and then there are remakes of older games. FireRed and LeafGreen were remakes of Red and Blue (respectively) for the Advance, and HeartGold and SoulSilver are the atrociously-named remakes of Gold and Silver (respectively) for DS. So technically they're [I]brand[/I] new, just not [I]new[/I].[/FONT][/QUOTE][FONT="Georgia"]Okay, that pretty much makes sense. Thanks for explaining! [/FONT]
  18. [quote name='Ace'][FONT="Comic Sans MS"]It's one of the three Pokemon you can start with. The other two are Totodile and Chikorita. Cyndaquil is the fire-based one, so a lot of people choose it for that, since fire is both really cool and a relatively scarce Pokemon type in the Wild. Personally, I prefer Totodile as a starter, but I already have one in one of my other games.[/FONT][/QUOTE] [FONT="Georgia"]Okay, I clearly know less about Pokemon than I thought. I thought new games introduced new Pokemon. Haven't those three been around for a while? (I recognise them, so they must have.)[/FONT]

    St. Patrick's Day, everybody!

    [quote name='chibi-master']I thought it was about the booze.:confused: I think some of the only people who realize what the Irish went through are the Irish themselves. I don't think we celebrate it as an apology to an entire group of people. I have sympathy for the Irish, but they weren't the only ones to go through bad things because of where they were from, so why should they have their own "We're sorry for how we treated you!" holiday?[/QUOTE][FONT="Georgia"]I think you're closer to the heart of the matter here.[/FONT]

    Vistor messenger thingy

    [quote name='Magus'][size=1][color=navy]I never what it was called. It goes like, you click on someone's username, and you get to post messages on the ..um.. page? In a sense it's similar to posting on someones wall, guest book or something of that nature. I'm just wondering has this ever been done or considered. I know there's private messenger and aim, but I thought I'd throw that out there.[/size][/color][/QUOTE][FONT="Georgia"]Guestbook! There's one for theotaku portfolio pages. You're interested in having one at the forums? [/FONT]

    St. Patrick's Day, everybody!

    [quote name='CaNz']i have no real Irish traits, so i don't try and pretend i am... really most white people are so mixed up you might as well just stick with American, i do.[/QUOTE][FONT="Georgia"]If you think about it, emphasizing your (historical) immigrant heritage, wearing green, and getting sloshed for St. Patrick's Day is a proud American tradition. People sometimes claim America doesn't have a culture, but we totally do. We just look for it in all the wrong places.[/FONT]
