In response to resolution shown in this thread (http://forums.nrvnqsr.com/showthread.php/4037-On-Bittersweet-being-revealed-as-Crying-Vegeta?p=1261641#post1261641) and in order to turn the fail it contains into something slightly less shameless, though not by a lot, we will commence preparations for a game of FATAL.

FATAL character creator (http://www.4-shared.eu/download/68M8HznnTm0dSH3DIzWB8C/FATAL-Character-Generator.html)

The core rulebook is easily found. Everyone up for the game, let's pool together our intentions. Surely something can be worked out.

As for me, I'd rather not take the GM reins, also because I don't trust myself at all to be poetic enough in english, but will do it in case that nobody else volutneers for the position.

If something comes up from it, chances are there is going to be drawfagging and stuff somewhere long down by the line, so there's that hook too.

Should we use Skype? Or IRC? If neither, what do you have good experiences with? We obviously need a very good rolling system, which is why this forum most likely won't do.

No.
I am not sure at all.

Anyway, there is our chance to do this, until we wake up tomorrow and realize that this might not be such good idea after all. By that time, it would be good to be deep enough in, that we won't be able to backpedal out of it!

I don't think you can make people actually get the character creation of this monstrosity.

Ratman
August 3rd, 2013, 06:53 PM
It indeed takes a unique mind. Speaks volumes of the special, extremely refined kind of a player that will go through with it.

(It's also REALLY important to mention that I intend to play it as as normal an RPG as possible. No raping unless the rules say so. Which they will, so if you are going to play, you really should buckle up and project nothing onto your character)

How many players are you looking at exactly because I doubt you will even get 3.

Erlkonig
August 3rd, 2013, 06:54 PM
No.

Some things were not meant to be opened.

FATAL is one of them.

Saged, reported, hidden, called the cops, etc.

best thing about the FATAL character designer is it will cuss you out if you screw up.

Also bro you forgot the FATAL theme song in your OP.

I am looking at zero players, obviously.

It seems that people have thought this is a good idea, though they are now sobering up, so yeah.

I3uster
August 3rd, 2013, 06:57 PM
Nobody unironically thinks FATAL is ever a good idea.

Except maybe Neir.

on a side note, that comic at the starting post is pretty funny. where from?

Ratman
August 3rd, 2013, 07:01 PM
^^I do. I genuinely want to see what is going to happen.

Well, this is exactly what I've expected. Sugarcoating isn't going to help, the thread is here to stay(unless it gets deleted which wouldn't be surprising) in case some insane people who are too curious for their own good show up and want to go there.

Oh, and the comic is from Gunshow. (http://gunshowcomic.com/733)

What is funny is I've actually thought of running a game of FATAL before just for laughs. But I know if I do horrible things will happen so I have swore to never fall to this desire.

So from peoples reactions this sounds like a Good Job RP, when does it start.

See the problem isn't that it's weird ERP, I think even WoD had weird ERP shit at times. It's that it's a completely incomprehensible system on top of that.

It isn't impossible to play, however, and still allows for roleplay as long as it's just hack and slash. Though you aren't going to last long in hack and slash. Unless you have someone with magic that can heal your severed limbs, which obviously opens a brand new can of worms.

I did.....I'm just confused of why someone made this or rather partially wondering why anyone would rp this?

Because someone in the Bittersweet thread was like "Anyone up for a game of FATAL"
And I've realized that I surprisingly am up for a game of FATAL.

There are reports of people who had fun playing FATAL. The worst RPG ever, you see, is an extremity, which gives it a certain degree of worth on its own. A lot of gourments would like to taste the absolutely worst tasting food. This is a lot like that. You are led by your curiosity. How bad could it possibly be? What could go wrong? SOMETHING is going to go wrong, but what?
It can be wieved as an attempt to broaden your horizons. The deeper your depths, the higher your heights.

It is also of note, and completely understandable, how people kind of want to see this happen but don't want to actually be a part of it.

You don't want to know. No really run from this thread with your faith in humanity intact.


What the fuck am I reading?!

Quickly Tobias get the original book. 900+ pages of horrible middle age research, Mechanics that make no sense, Random Latin Phrases spread all over the place. The stupidest magic effects ever and it only gets worse the more pages you turn.

The reason to play FATAL would be better stated as staring into a black abyss and wondering "Is it truly a infinite fall? Is it really that horrible?" and then you take the plunge and scream as you realize yes it is the bloody horrible and hilarious.
