    what's a pretender

    is it a robot in disguise as a human

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    It's a robot in disguise in disguise as a human. I'm pretty sure there was still a vehicle mode in there.

    But not for the human mode, of course. A human disguise would be pretty crappy if the human form turned into a vehicle. Humans don't do that.

    How about just gold plated chrome? A big old combiner bot made up of lots of gold chrome plastic.

    If only such a thing were real! IF ONLY!

    so transformers the SE++ RPG players

    I'm gonna get to work on setting-building.

    I don't want to tie this in to any specific canon, but I feel like I should take cues from one.

    Do you want a more Animated themed game? a WFC themed game? Something else?

    Do you want to play on earth, or in space? Or cybertron?

    alright, you turn the corner, scanning for decepticons

    you see a gelatinous blurr cube

    roll for initiative

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    oh no Metroid

    now you're going to make me go into the monologue

    Blurr Cube for NPC? firstly, the correct term is compressed blurr. Blurr Cube is technically correct but lacks a certain creativity. Furthermore...

    Poor Blurr

    that was truly terrifying.

    Actually, there's a lot in animated that is a bit frightening when you think about it

    Starscream dying over and over again (even if it was played for laughs)

    Sari discovering she's not human

    getting your damned head chopped off and your body stolen

    Blackarachnia's mutation

    Wasp getting wrongly imprisoned

    starscream dying repeatedly isn't scary

    I would want to try all the flavors. Earth, for the real vehicles and 'robots in disguise' stuff. Space and Cybertron for the futuristic, alien stuff, with plenty of exploration and random robotic things. I'm picturing something like The Movie and the Unicron Trilogy. Backstories for Cybertron, but start on Earth with some typical Decepticon plots. Then move into space as the scope widens a bit.

    I would also enjoy Mini-Cons as a source of power ups, new weapons, etc.

    Also we could recruit guys for Leo Breaker-type addons.

    I would really be amused by A/E/C or RiD special attacks/transformations involving lots of yelling, but that's probably pushing it.

    hmmmmm

    I'm maybe thinking animated-themed, and taking Reynolds' idea of starting on earth and moving into space

    Where on earth, though?

    I'm assuming a city. But which one?

    Detroit's Optimus's turf. New York is maybe a bit too busy.

    Somewhere out in California?
