Seven days ago, the world ended. Not with a bang, or with a whimper, but with a sound like a tractor being shoved through a wood chipper.

Grab your shotgun and don your re-purposed sporting equipment - Ragnarok's come and it's time to mess shit up.

If you do not want to make a character, but would still like to bip in occasionally/fuck with the players, then do I have good news for you! Characters whose names are written in Lime may be controlled by anyone who wanders into the thread. Anyone. Just make sure to post the character's actions in Sandybrown so DE?AD notices them.

There are currently four missions happening simultaneously:

[The Deluge Part III] [Viscount Islands] [MISSION COMPLETE]
Estimated Location: Probably near Seattle
Description: You've proven your worth to Uriel, but he's made it clear that you work for him. At least you got some sweet new abilities to go with that crushing feeling of hopelessness.
Unlockable Ads: [Reign O'er Me]


[Cecil Reloaded] [VALVEjunkie, Krosius, DontShootToasters, Zanzibar, Lockout, Antimatter, Kueller] [MISSION COMPLETE]
Estimated Location: Off the coast of Argentina
Description: Cecil will not be complete until he can refill his stores of RAD, and discover his place in the Wastes. Cassandra has found a particularly large deposit of RAD coming from the sea floor off of what was once Argentina. SNN communications do not indicate the presence of any terminals there, so it should be safe to explore.
Unlockable Ads: [Steamboat Willie]

[The Bro Just Wants a New Rug, Man] [Dubh, Squall, Tommy2hands, Shabooty, Marshmallow, Cyense, Shock G, Corom] [MISSION COMPLETE]
Estimated Location: San Francisco
Description:The Bro wants a new rug. Cassandra has mentioned that there is furniture store on the other end of the city that probably would have some rugs.
Unlockable Ads: [Out of Your Element], [Goodnight, Sweet Prince]


[Dan, Interrupted] [Cheeseliker, NeoToma, Raneados, Thor4242, Dux] [MISSION COMPLETE]
Estimated Location:The Canadian Rockies
Description:
Dan has brain problems. More than most, at least. He needs to come to terms with what happened to him if he wants to mend his brain and cure his Legion's Disease in the process. Cassandra has located the mental institution Dan once occupied in the Canadian Rockies. She believes going there may help him face the truth.

    Alright youse guys, it's time to make a bitchin' flag design for our crew to start scribbling everywhere

    It will inspire those throughout the wastes to join our cause, and after we win there will likely be drink-spilling

    Names we have come up with so far:
    The Crimson Horde
    The Crimson Wasters
    The Crimson Suns (also Crimsuns :rotate:)
    The Desert Wastrels
    The Crimson Dawn
    The Crimson Sky

    It is apparent that we like that word.

    Now the idea is to design a flag that epitomizes what our characters stand for, since we're all terrible nerds.

    Things we might want in the design:
    • The Sun? Our enemy's base of operations is the moon, so that's pretty simple
    • Fire. Humans/Freakers/Psychers/Robots/Mutants have often been likened to a raging fire due to our FIGHTING SPIRIT
    • Goggles. They are pretty neat, and most characters have worn them at some time or another. We even put them on a truck.
    • Keep it simple. This is something that anyone in the thread should be able to scrawl
    • Fewer colors are better. The enemy is empitomized by black and lime, so we should try to avoid those colors.


    Designs so far:

    Suns:
    draft1_small.pngdraft4_small.png

    Helms:
    draft2_small.pngdraft3_small.png

    By Raneados:
    draft5.png

    Talk about which ones you like, which ones suck, what could be added or removes, &c.

    We might hold a poll later maybe? I dunno, this is all very silly.

    Back at base, some time before Cecil's group returns, Dusty lays out a blueprint across the table. It's a crayon diagram of an elevator on a salvaged blueprints page. On the back, one could catch a glimpse of the letters "Chuc-" as the paper settles to the surface.

    telvator.png?t=1273074110


    "Mission must be finished." Leaning over the picture, Dusty glances up at the group. "Bro and rug must be recovered. Elevator not found ichrrk Palomar." He pushes off the table and nods at Crabby... and walks over a chair. Dusty continues on, without a pause or a limp. "Difficult to track. Could a-a-ask Man-Sword-Shark," a hand pats Skiff's shoulder as the masked wanderer continues around the table. "Would take too long. Have beard trimmings from wizard. The othe-e-e-r wizard." Dusty looks Kruppe dead in the eye as a packet of curled hairs lands on the table. Pfff.

    "Televator. Teleporting devi-i-i-ice. Can acquire coordinates through lo-o-oca-a-ation memory or physical sample. Preci-ise. Idea not gleaned arrfff a television sho-o-ow."

    Dusty unhooks a tube from his belt and dumps out a pile of xeroxed papers, covering the bag of beard hair and the blueprints. Enough for everyone to have seven copies.

    Needs!
    -Elevator car from Palomar
    -Scrapped Steel
    -Apple 2e computer
    -Trashcan
    -Onions
    -Milk
    -Piecrust
    -Water
    -Spice
    -Portable Telescope
    -Police Siren
    -Flatbed Truck
    -Kitchen Sink
    -Minifridge
    etc.

    Austenism -5%, Can't Read a Damn -5%, Mutant Man's Burden -10%, Monstrous -10%]


    The gears in Wolf's head whir to life as he remembers the truck gate from the Palomar. "Skiff and any other volunteers, I say, we must return to the Palomar for the lift car, the lorry and some of the bloody girders from the husk of a building! Smashing good luck that they left the trucks intact, what! Oh, we might need someone good with engine machinery..." Wolf looks a little bewildered before jumping back to life and heading to the Palomar to collect the necessary pieces.

    After a pleasant conversation with the crabbot, Kruppe decides to take a nice wander around the camp, looking for the materials Dusty needs. After a time, he comes upon a still functioning Apple II computer, just lying in the middle of the road. What are the odds?

    But when Kruppe picks it it he finds that is not so much a computer, and is more like a spider colony. In his fright, the warlock drops the device spilling the little hellbeasts everywhere. Fortunately, there is a vintage electronics shop across the way. What are the odds! Kruppe runs in, crushing many spiders in the process.

    One thing I like about the second knight helm is not the helmet itself

    it's the fact that it's engulfed in flames

    Everything is very nice

    I like the sun/moon juxtaposition that Rane did a lot, and the flaming sun is really cool

    Has there been talk of a color scheme yet?

    we want as few colors and as simple of a design as possible

    black and green are the colors of the enemy, but we might be able to throw a little green in ours since RAD is still used by our team

    red on white was an obvious juxtaposition, and also alluded nicely to Gurren Lagann, since everyone loves it so

    I like Rane's design because I choose to believe the sun's mustache is a reference to my character, and I am nothing if not vain.

    Not as big a fan of the helms. I still like the sun with a mouth/mustache.

    Or at least the sun with sideburns.

    nah I always drew Husc's helmet as Spartan-esque

    these are two I doodled up in a couple of minutes, we just needed more designs to pique interest and maybe spark some ideas from non-doodler players

    Oh, alrighty.

    I'll be honest I'm not feeling the Sun in general as a symbol for you guys. Neither knights. Those are a bit too...pure.

    Try something a little more hodgepodge and rough around the edges.

    I wasn't ever really for knights, everyone else just seemed to clamour for it so I doodled it

    I like the second sun design best, but it would be neat if it looked a little more slap-shod

    trouble comes up when we try to keep the design simple though

    that's why the sun design is so easy to draw, it can be scrawled anywhere

    I don't really like the name Knights of Radonia...

    I think a simple symbol of a golden sun would be fine, or maybe a star? How 'bout just a yellow smiley face? It's classic, simple, and inspires hope and happiness.
