    All fiction is masturbation, Dichotomy.

    40k is just really bloody, angry masturbation.

  • MaceraMacera Registered User
    no it isn't

    because I enjoy 40k

    and the thought of sexual gratification to me is gross and debasing

  • DichotomyDichotomy Registered User regular
    yeah but 40k is funny masturbation

    To be fair,t here is a sex angle hinted at no so coyly in Eclipse Phase, that i'm not entirely sure i'm okay with being okay with. it weirds me out that i'm not weirded out by it.

  • DE?ADDE?AD Registered User regular
    There's a sex angle in pretty much every bit of Transhuman fiction.

    It's what happens when you start dealing with the notion that you could swap bodies and engineer new lifeforms for specific purposes, especially when the people dealing with them are, by and large, giant nerds.

  • DichotomyDichotomy Registered User regular
    I suppose I can consider it a comfort that when presented with a world of boundless sexuality limited only by one's own creativity all I want to do is live inside a big stompy robot

    you can be an octopus that can change sex at will. the implications are damning.

  • HunteraHuntera Rude Boy Registered User regular
    Hey, I'm not a giant nerd.

    I'm only 6' 1"

    oh hey and after we run a game with this system why don't we play some fatal and tear out our teeth and eyeballs while we're at it

  • MeldingMelding Registered User regular
    because this game looks fun, and fatal is actually really poorly designed.

    Just because you can do weird deviant thigns with it doesn't mean it's also racist.

    it's not like they have a stat that deals with dick size.

    Four times i typed duck size.

    I was tempted to leave it.

    It's nothing as bad as that.

    It's more that they're trying to really imply the weird freedoms that the setting has, and, well, occasionally that touches on sex. 'Cause, y'know, the authors are human and nerds.

  • MeldingMelding Registered User regular
    my duck size is huge.

  • YukiraYukira Registered User regular
    Gonna get a giant duck body.

    I'm trying to figure out a way to be a big stompy robot and Melding keeps showing me this thing.

    I mean, that's a great murderbot, but it lacks, the proper tools for crushing skulls under heels.

  • DichotomyDichotomy Registered User regular
    both of you are to be entered into the book of grudges

    Isn't that just a list of the population of Earth, minus your parents?

  • DichotomyDichotomy Registered User regular
    hey now, it's not individual based, it's transgression based

    most people are in there more than once

    0BnD8l3.gif
  • HunteraHuntera Rude Boy Registered User regular
    My point stands.

    they're actually top of the list because he wasnt born a tentacool

  • MeldingMelding Registered User regular
    That is a damn fine murder bot. it's got four arms with claws and think of what you can put in the weapon pods.

    I am thinking two plasma rifles and two machine guns. 30 grand on weapons, but you could kill the world.

    The hard part is obtaining the murderbot.

  • DichotomyDichotomy Registered User regular
    yeah but if you can't stomp around in a big shooty robot then what is the point

    you might as well be playing something wussy like a helicopter

    0BnD8l3.gif
  • HunteraHuntera Rude Boy Registered User regular
    That clearly has 4 limbs you can use to stomp around with.

  • DichotomyDichotomy Registered User regular
    those limbs aren't stompy at all!

    0BnD8l3.gif
  • HunteraHuntera Rude Boy Registered User regular
    No but they can be used to stomp around like one of the War of the Worlds walkers.

  • MaceraMacera Registered User
    need something more like

  • DichotomyDichotomy Registered User regular
    no no you don't get it

    this is stompy

    this is stompy

    that spherical robot above might be able to move upon limbs, but it is decidedly not stompy

    0BnD8l3.gif
  • HunteraHuntera Rude Boy Registered User regular
    Alright.


    I'm gonna go play my Space Marine demo again, look at some stompy stuff for reference.

    I think I've got the Eclipse Phase pdf somewhere on this computer, downloaded it when it first came out, read it through, then promptly forgot about it.

    If you find you need a 'nother dude for whatever reason I'm pretty sure I can brush up on the rules quick as anything. Fill whatever party slot isn't already filled by insane battle robots or insane AIs.

    Yeeesssss.

  • MeldingMelding Registered User regular
    i already admitted it's not very stompy. however.

    I don't think you understand the level of devastation it can reign down. you got a machine gun with an extended clip and hollow point bullets. nothing with light armour will survive. you got a machine gun same deal but armour piecing armour. heavy armoured guys go down like a bitch. then two plasma rifles. which can out right kill people in one shot. like, desolve the body in plasma kill people. and you have two of them. plus it's probably goign to be strogner then any human so you can throw stuff around instead of stomping. i could help you make a stompy character, but it will pale int he face of the reaper.

    i suggest grabbing the newer pdf. they updated some stuff.

  • MeldingMelding Registered User regular
  • DichotomyDichotomy Registered User regular
    I appreciate the sentiment melding but I'm just kinda shootin' the shit here and am sufficiently repulsed by the setting and mechanics that I ain't ever gonna get into eclipse phase

    (PS too many limbs drastically reduces stompiness as each additional limb bears progressively less weight I am an expert at pretending to be stompy robots I know this stuff)
