June 21, 2007. The Republic of Yucatan is in a state of civil war. Ciro Vargas' corrupt regime is nearly at an end as his unjust rule combined with abysmal living conditions gave rise to countless rebel factions, some desperate, some ambitious. Combined, the rebel army marches its way to the capital to claim Vargas' head. You, a mercenary, have been contracted to protect corporate interests in the unstable region.

You may take any native language that you wish, but you must have spoken English with at least a comprehension level of broken. Ideally, we would have at least one Spanish-speaking mercenary, considering the setting. Also, the game takes place in an alternate reality in which Russia and China are the dominant powers, so Russian and Mandarin might be good language choices.

Credits to Curtis Handsaker for most of the weapons.

If you're interested, make a 150 point sheet, choose your weapons, and then post them in the thread.

Forum Games / The Fantasy CYOA - Epic Mythos of Rozmomastrod
« on: June 04, 2007, 04:51:45 pm »
The world of Rozmomastrod is indeed epic. From the cold, windswept mountains of Zareth to the dunes of Allas to the depths of the Ziril Sea, one cannot help but wonder what epics this legendary world would tell given a voice. Until now, this land's secrets have been seldom told, but now, I will bare the world of Rozmomastrod to all. Just pick a letter.

A) Rognor, the barbarian prince hardened by the frozen wastes of the North and empowered by Zues(sic), the god of lightning!

B) Apple, the apprentice wizard with a grudge and nothing to lose!

C) Ridley, the dashing rogue with an even moreso dashing secret!

D) Aeiaeiae, the priestess that lost her blessed amulet and would kill to get it back!

Console Games / Worst video game music
« on: January 11, 2007, 05:51:56 pm »
Usually, a video game's soundtrack doesn't retract from the quality of the game because it either fits the theme well or you can't hear it over monsters being gibbed by your chainsaw. However, sometimes the music is so horrible that you start to feel physically ill from listening to it and you have to leave the room for a dose of the 'magic cocktail' that your redneck friend made under the influence of acid which consists of dishwasher fluid, molten copper and Drano, just the thing you need to clear your head.

My nominee for worst video game music has to be Knights of the Round for the SNES. It's said that this game has been used, along with classics such as The Shaggs - My Pal Foot Foot, to torture prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. Even if said claims are false, it's definitely conceivable that the horribly bland music in Knights could cause permenant damage to the human psyche. I have actually had thoughts of suicide while playing the game. If you don't believe me, that's fine. But do not, no matter how much you want to disprove the 16-year old troll from the think tank of Central Florida, try to find a copy of the game. It's not worth your life.

Everything Else / Don Johnson 2: Don Johnson Strikes Back
« on: November 06, 2006, 12:23:35 am »
i checked my neglected email address for the first time in months only to find that, somewhere in the dark depths of the Internet, Don Johnson is alive, well, and bears a grudge.

according to the records, it happened 10 days before halloween. Don Johnson, operating under the psuedonym 'RobertT', mercilessly attacked the GamingW.net forums. although the message itself was unchanged, our friend Donny had a new trick up his sleeve: instead of giving all of his personal messages the same title, he deceitfully gave the two messages he sent out two different titles, our old enemy 'IMPORTANT NEWS AND INFORMATION!!!', and the deadly newcomer 'URGENT MESSAGE FROM ADMIN'.

however, the sheer amount of raw neural power required for this malevolent deception took its effects on the wicked man, and his coordination was severely impaired, causing him only to send two messages instead of the three he used to attack GamingSteve.

even in light of this, Don John is still a powerful threat. my advice: run. run and never stop. don't go to a shelter or anything like that, just keep moving, sleep where your body drops. you will know in the morning if you have survived.
