Question for the 8th of March:

 

If offered one, what superpower would you choose and why?

 

 

Probability manipulation. Need money? 100% probability that you'll find $100. Need to get to the airport real quick? 0% probabilty of accidents. Bad guy threatening you and all you hold dear? 100% of brain aneurysm. 

 

That sort of thing.

 

Alternately, the power to fill/empty things. Bad guy? Fill up his lungs with water. Money? Fill pockets (or bank account) with money. In a hurry? Empty the roads.

The ability to shapeshift and the ability to temporarily shape shift others.

Why? It would be fun.

The power of the Op-Op Devil Fruit from One Piece.

 

I'm mainly after the teleportation and matter manipulation, but the ability to generate electricity and radiation and who knows what else could come in handy.

The power to imbue anyone with decent, honest to goodness common sense, a pleasant peaceful demeanor, with a desire for equality and justice for all. Then I'd target nation, church, and corporate leaders.

 

I'll likely be declared public enemy #1 within 24 hours.

 

[And just like the POV gun from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie, women are naturally immune.]

Question the 7th of March:  How many discontinued or out of print games do you still play/want to play?

- Battletech (I love building custom big stompy robots)

- Car Wars (ditto, building monster cars in countless variations)

- Battle Masters

- Star Wars d6 (tons of source material)

 

Yes, not all of them are necessarily out of print, particularly if you consider digital copies, but they aren't mainstream anymore. Back in the 90s, I loved building customized units for wargames. More were built than actually played.

 

My usual problem is not so much finding the rules, it's finding other people to play with.

In the modern world, the ability to manipulate electronic signals would seem pretty useful.  Control the internet and all electronic communication, monetary transfers, and intercept the missile codes.  Why you could even selectively delete celebrity Twitter accounts.

Well, my mind immediately went to “The United States”. Russia’s a little shopworn, and I don’t think I could learn Chinese very quickly. ::P:

 Quantum-kinesis:

 

The ability to telekinetically sense and control sub-atomic particles. It's essentially command over the basic forces of the universe.

 

 I could rearrange lead into gold, start nuclear explosions, walk through walls, fly, learn to read peoples' minds, heal people, all by tweaking the very fabric of reality.

 

Oh, and if you get on my bad side, I can reach into your brain and turn you off like a light switch, in a hundred different ways.  :devil:

Thanks to @Inarah for back stopping me yesterday!  I was (and still am) without power and had to dig myself out.  So I wasn't able to get to a computer until I got to work.

 

Question the 9th-11th of March:  Pick any Reaper mini.  Based upon the name or the sculpt, come up with a story about it. (can be just a couple or sentences or as long as you want.

The Undiminished British Empire as it stood at the height of Victoria's tenure.  ( @Beagle )

-Or-

(if it is the other thing...)

I will have whatever Q is having.

Omnipotent, not omniscient. We demi-gods are not interested in the thoughts of mere mortals. 

So basically a Q  ?

Why be selective? If you were a Q you could just delete them by the shed load.

 Yes, being a just about fits the bill, but with less hammy acting and even more arbitrary exercise of power.

Gutrags the golem. (A figure I must get hold of and paint for "Frostgrave").

Trader Brown was a bad-tempered and aggressive man. He repeatedly took out his anger on the sacks and bales of goods in his warehouse. Little did he think that, thanks to a passing wizard, a day of awful reckoning was drawing near...

Omnipotence would be cool.  If that's not on the table, the ability to mimic and retain everyone else's abilities.  If no one else has powers, then the ability to reach into my pocket and pull out the exact amount needed to pay the cashier.

      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

      Here's my list:
       
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.
