I keep expecting them to be mentioned in one of the 40k RPG books, like other characters we've made up over the years. I think it would be the ultimate ego stroke to see a printed mention and canonization of something you personally had a hand in creating.

Anyway, I've always thought that building a scale model of Boris would be a dream build, perfect for Games Day or some other event. He would even have minis of all the major clan members peaking out of him.

Well, the chapter would probably gain most of their recruits from the hive gangs worlds of sector Italicus, mainly Sicilicus. The strong traditions of honor and family within the gangs influenced the chapter's doctrines. They refuse to recruit from any other planets. Their chapter colors are black with white aquillas and white helmets, which they were special ornate hats referred to as 'fedoras' in the custom of the Italicus hive gangs.

The Chapter Master is called the Godfather, his titles including the Boss of Bosses and Capo dei Capi. The captains are called Bosses. Each squad of marines follows the doctrines of the Codex Astartes, but can easily operate on their own. The chapter's specialty is for a lone marine to carry out a 'hit' - a killing ordered by their Boss. These are usually enemy leaders, but can sometimes include regular enemy troops, or even fellow marines suspected of heresy.

Not much else you can really do with this sort of thing. Chapter would be specialist urbant fighters, used to the clutter and cluster of hive worlds. They'd probably be willing to make deals with planetary governers, Arbites forces, and Mechancius factions to do them favors for technology and resources. The favored weapon of Scouts is the shotgun over the sniper rifle, because they prefer to kill the enemy one on one at close range.

That story is 10/10. Whoever wrote it deserves a lot of praise.

On a different note, I think two of my favourite things have to be "the 60 second market", and the way the only evil thing the chaos core could manage was to create politicians. They're both so Pratchettesque, and so good. There's a lot more wit in the Scraplootas than people give them credit for.

That's not strictly true. With the Scraplootas she's an adult, just not very mentally developed.

There's that one story with (at least) two different ends for Blue. In one, the orks are baffled as to why Blue is slowly growing weaker over the years until she finally "falls asleep", since the concept of dying of old age is completely alien to orks. The warboss is convinced she will one day wake up again, but he misses her a lot.

In the other, the WAAAAGH field has made Blue stop aging, and she grows bigger and bigger like normal orks. Frankly I like the first ending better.

I don't want to go on a "Blue is stupid because canon" rant, because I don't believe that and I think having fun should go before playing by the rules, it's just that it always annoys me when people take the ork imagination thing too literal and say stuff like "if ork guns work because the orks think they will, then why do they build guns instead of just picking up sticks and go pew pew pew"?

The story was framed from the point of view of observing eldar who had no idea why she wasn't aging, just that she wasn't. Even within the story they called the theory that the waaagh was keeping her young dumb, they just couldn't figure out what the fuck was going on.

I kinda liked that story the most just because it sort of enveloped the whole idea of the Scraplootas being silly and that if you try too hard to make sense of them, you'll just get a headache. Sort of like how Calvin never aged at all in the entire run of Calvin and Hobbes and Watterson would even sometimes made jokes about this.

No, I think he specifically meant to explain why gratuitous pop culture references do more to hurt OC than help it.

I think only three of them started off as references, but then almost immediately diverged.

-Snekkit was a Snake parody, but then took off on his own and no one remembers that anymore. Now he's best known as a nob who is a kommando and is dead sneaky despite being big.

-Derknitt was a Batman parody, but now he's just the ork who goes around krumping anything that isn't orky, including gits, screaming wall demons, and whatever else he catches.

-Gitstitcha was a Dr. Weird parody, but the idea of how an ork can survive a head transplant overwrote that with the idea that he's done it to himself before. That and his tormenting the deamon core.

Yeah, that's pretty much the wavelength I'm on. It gets so annoying having to explain to people that just because their idea doesn't receive acclaim, that it's not a personal attack on them. And just because they have an idea, that doesn't mean that it fits the tone of what the project is.

It's like, sure, there's a place for derpiness, but not EVERYWHERE. And yet, people seem to think that derpiness is necessary, because any restraint whatsoever is an ATTACK ON MUH CREATIVITY, and any attempt to tone the zaniness down is GRIMDARK FAGGOT PLEASE GO.


Lolrandom does not mean fun. It just shows that you can't create an idea beyond yelling about shit. Volume is not quality, if that makes any sense.

Just look at the Oestalan System for a recentish homebrew that didn't get any traction. They tried to keep the derp to a minimum, but got accused of being fascists because they tried to maintain some control over what was included. Some of what hey said was hamhanded, certainly, but there was also a lot of butthurt from the peanut gallery, which was caused by AND provoked excessive responses. The anons got mad because their every utterance didn't get included, and they left the project to die on the vine.

It was a really interesting little negative feedback loop.

I'm not saying it was perfect, but it was very illustrative of the difficulties in creating a storyline as opposed to a series of disjointed segments.

I was there lurking for a fair amount of it, and my impression was that as time went on, fewer and fewer people were actually making stiff for it; they all either got bored and left for other things or didn't like the way one part or another was going and ragequit.

Speaking of which, never namefag or tripfag when making OC. It causes the content creators who do it to get swelled heads and attracts the shitposters who automatically assume any thread with mor than two namefags/tripfags is a circlejerk which must be trolled to oblivion for the good of the board.

Well, I found that on LARP threads, names/trips are usefull, if only to denounce where in the world you are from, so we can keep the discussion ontopic, instead of constantly asking where you are (for when you are asking questions about nearby larps/stores/shops/workshops/ect)

>> No.32594194

>>32594102
I don't think anyone would say that trips are a totally useless tool.

The key is that tripping tends to attach a person's ego to their ideas, and then they get extremely defensive at the slightest criticism. I've seen it dozens of times in many /tg/ homebrews.

Reacting with GET THE HELL OUT TRIPFAG I HOPE YOU DIE IN A FIRE at their first post is also likewise poor decisionmaking on the part of anon. Such an excessive reaction leads to trips tripping just to troll those anons.

It's finding balance, and learning not to fly off the handle at the slightest provocation, is all.

An ork tribe that /tg/ rolled on the ol dice tables and ended up with a gang of freebooterz comprised almost entirely of grots and kommandos and nothing else. Oh, and they also looted a chaos titan and made it orky.

I don't think it's that they avoided them, I think its more that they used to create something decent instead of just "lol derp look a reference! XD!!! XP!!"

Pop culture references work best when they're used to add something to the universe or characters.

>> No.32606748

>>32606053
Well I wouldn't call them direct references to any one thing or character, more references to ideas/cliches that are regularly used in significant portions of pop culture.

Threegrot is based on the gag about 3 (or more) kids/midgets/aliens trying to sneak about and pretend to be an "adult/human" by standing on each others shoulders and wearing a big coat (and maby a hat).

The Grotocracy is a cliche, over the top bureaucracy, taken to even more extremes because they're Orks/Gretchen.

Combine that with the fact that they have a bit of a 80's Yuppie type vibe going with some of the higher ups.

Well at least that's how I see it
