    Not a furry. Seriously. I hate furries fucking to death. I watched tailspin as a kid though. That was awesome shit. So if you could be turned into a bipedal version of an animal where everyone was one in the world of tailspin what would you be? You have to have characteristics of the animal personality wise.
    Which is a world of bad ass air pirates, Navy's, dog fights, business espionage, monopolies and private militaries... Man i wish there was a tailspin table top game. I even vaguely remember an episode where the pirates were hired to cause an oil shortage. Also Nostalgia

    Being a furry is alright as long as you're not a furfag.

    You see the Furoticon thing? Most furries hate shit like that; it makes them look bad. FURFAGS, now, furfags eat that shit up like it's filet mignon (and said comparison IS an insult to filet mignon.)

    Now, that said, long as there's no sex involved besides the usual fade-to-black "I-seduce-the-barmaid" you get in every game, you get some awesome stuff.

    Iron Vulture? Fuck yeah, giant fuckoff huge airship piloted by a guy who WOULD have won at least once if it wasn't a Disney show-plus a dude surfing around on a glider. Affable old dude who's seen better years, but can still fly a plane like nobody's buisness-and coaxes fighter plane stuff out of a cargo plane-and carries on a slow romance with the old lady who owns his cargo company.
    Even has a quirky, likeable mechanic who, despite apparently having the Int of a brick and the Dex of a sloth, manages to keep the old guy's plane in top shape.
    Shave all the fur off, and /tg/ would be talking about TaleSpin all the time.

    But because OH NO FURRIES word one doesn't come up about it.

    Now, personally, if I were going to run a game of TaleSpin I'd run it in-

    -Spirit of the Century
    -Savage Worlds
    -Risus (if your players can be trusted and you're a good GM.)

    d20 would work, of course, but /tg/ loves to hate d20, so eh.

    I'm here to talk TaleSpin all evening-if anyone brings up sex, ignore 'em; we'll Get Shit Done without their interference.

    I have no idea, OP. If I thought about this too deeply, considering that I am into furry porn, I would be dangerously close to creating a fursona. I have thought about this before though when thinking up some concepts for a campaign set in the "Dark World" of "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past". I don't know how to describe myself though... what am I, or what do I want to be? The only way to get a proper answer would be to ask a casual friend what I am like and go from there.

    Alright you derps seem to have confused my factual statement with actually caring one whit about furries.

    It is a simple and undeniable fact that if you WANT TO BE AN ANTHROPOMORPHIC ANIMAL then you most certainly can be considered to, if nothing else, have something fairly related to the furry fetish, if not precisely that, since it does indeed refer to arousal, sexual stuff, etc.

    The two are not related for any reason but to fit with all the other disney children's shows at the time. It functions perfectly fine without the furry, yet the OP is confused (probably by his admitted nostalgia) into thinking he needs to include the furry parts as well.

    - I pay a lot of attention to everything. They say I'm a bit creepy with this, even. One of them described it as being a kind of unsettling attention, like I was archiving everything they said (it's not on purpose, honest! Stupid negative charisma).
    - I'm hard to really anger, but very, *very* easily irritated. I'm trying to get better on this. A short temper is a sign of weakness, if you ask me.
    - They also said I'm smart. Please don't believe them on this. I just know a lot of stuff, but I suck at associating it and actually having ideas.
    - I have a huge imagination.
    - I'm almost stupidly passive unless it's something that moraly offends me. Well, fair enough. I *am* rather passive. No need to sweat things, you know?

    ...so, er, maybe one of those creepy beady-eye lizards that sit on rocks all day and try to bite you if you approach your fingers? Awww. Man, remind me to never go furry. My fursona would be the ugliest thing ever.

    I approve.

    Now, as for the various species:

    -Dog breeds are something akin to noble families or particularly insular clans-think rednecks for some of the really stupid ones. There are LOTS of them, and they tend to be nigh-fascist due to the pack mentality.
    -Cats vary a lot-they can be lazy fuckers or smooth bastards, but it largely depends on the individual. They breed fast, and keep down the rats-which the rats don't like.
    Again, specific breeds are clans, and stuff like the Munchkins are about as crazy and inbred as you can imagine.
    -Rats are cheap labor, and mice are the same-but delicate. Think Mexican day laborer versus maid. Rats are cowardly, rough, and crude; while mice are timid, prone to flightiness and panic, but more decorous.
    Both breed like rabbits, though.
    -Speaking of which, Rabbits I'd avoid, because the LOLSEX angle is too easily played up; if not, I'd make them something along the lines of cheap labor, but underground. When you can't get a mole, you get a rabbit-they dig well, they can brace decently, and if they build it, it stays up.
    There are entire underground cities comprised primarily of rabbits, with double handfuls of moles, etc.
    -Weasels and their kin are dangerous-thugs, assassins...not nice people, and don't get started on the Wolverines, because they'll fuck you up, and maybe eat you to seal the deal. Generally kept under surveillance for just that reason, and wolverine violent crime is punished, first time, with death. Too many have fucked up, and people have gotten wise.
    -Sloths are natural accountants and security guards; they can watch the same thing for hours on end and not get bored. Clever engineers have made typewriters involving minimal effort, and most bureaucracies are crewed entirely by sloths.
    -Lizards vary, a lot, and tend to be more cold-blooded (yes, I saw what I did there) than mammals. They have a reputation for cruelty and violence that may be deserved.

    Still thinkin'.

    I imagine among the canines and felines that the wild breeds would be at odds with the "domesticated" ones for some reason. Perhaps the domesticated (human created) breeds are city dwellers. Fairly liberal... where-as the wild breeds of-course live a less sophisticated life and are more old fashioned. Both sides consider themselves morally superior to the other.

    Amphibians get shit from everybody. Reptiles don't accept them, mammals don't accept them, and fish (if we are going to include them) don't accept them. And unlike some of the other disliked races, they aren't nearly as useful in a fight, so they tend to be flighty and stick with their own kind.

    They make excellent dock workers. Especially with a gator foreman on watch. . .

    Don't just choose ONE SPECIES for a locale. Sure, the Middle East has camels, but it also has burrowing owls, desert cats, etc.

    Things are going to change a bit, too. Since Africa has chimps, they're going to have a bit better civ. Lions are trying to fuck that up, though-or maybe they have, a while back, and Africa is in the state it is because they did that.

    America...as usual for the era, America is on top because of their melting-pot nature-they've got chimps working on things, legions of rats building things (with occasional mafias of cats keeping them in line), and of course the Manhattan Project was mostly monkeys.

    In the past Lions along with many other of the wild breeds were the dominant culture. They had dynasties all across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North America, ect... However with industrialization the "domesticated breeds"/citydwellers have risen to the top. Their ancestral lines do not trace back as far as they are primarily based (at least originally) on trading and other mercantile activities. As they've gone along they've abandoned many of the wold ways of thinking and thus there is a lot of deep seated animosity between them and their "wild" cousins.

I don't mind if my work goes undone, but I hate seeing others having to do *my* work. That's just unfair to them. I see effort as a bad thing, so inflicting it on others for my own benefit classifies as Evil in my book). Plus, the same work divided by two people is half the effort for each one, which is just appealing.

    Funny thing about lions...
    I've heard there are two types of lions: The European lion and the African lion. They say the European lions, the ones most connected to nobility, once lived north of Africa. When the people of Europe expanded their territories, they fought off and killed the lions there, forcing them to move south. The lions that stayed died off, but are the ones closely related to things like courage and nobility while the ones that became African lions are more flawed and are not as stubborn, but often foolish.
    In African cultures, lions are scapegoats and are trapped and killed ritualistically by villagers to purge the source of their troubles.

    In this context, a lion can be a fall guy.

    We probably don't want things getting too complex now. I suggested Lions as Christians partly because of the whole regal thing but also the mentions of them in Christian mythology. Perhaps there religion encourages them to merciful to lambs and other prey species. That was what they considered to be the moral lesson of their religion. That Christ (or whatever you want to call him) taught them to, what else, love thy neighbor. If we want to bring about that African animosity then we have to bring ALLAH!

    Oh wow. The komodo. Such a ridiculous predator. It will just follow you, and wait till it sees another of its buddies, then attack. The stuff around their teeth was apparently found to be not just bacteria from its system but an an actual venom as well, around the base of its teeth. Some iguanas have this as well.

    I guess a lizard of some kind would make sense since I'm not exactly opposed to violence, but some kind of large lizard would make more sense than a snake- I'm not a charmer (Oh yes I just did) and I'm not afraid to appear dangerous. Probably be involved in transportation, have a lot of minor hobbies and always be polite with the locals unless they give me a reason to kick their heads in.

    I would be a ferret. I sleep most of the day (and night) away when left to do so, but when I'm up and active, I'm almost constantly in motion, stopping only when something catches my interest enough that I just have to stop and study it for a bit. Chances are though I'll get bored of it quickly and find something else to do.

    I'd have to fly something small-ish and very quick, very zippy. A one-man fighter, basically... anything that's much bigger is too slow and sluggish for my tastes. I'd probably be primarily flying escort for larger and/or unarmed craft like the Sea Duck.

    I played in a semi free-form RP a long while ago in the Tale Spin setting, but grimdarked somewhat. Was very furry, but with a remarkable lack of furry drama and other faggotry. All I've listed was, in a nutshell, my character. He had a very close brush with death after being shot down one mission and decided to retire from combat flying, settling down instead with a girl who'd caught his fancy.

    German Shepards were created as this worlds equivalent of the S.S. Meant to shepard all German breeds toward their glorious future. However the underlying politics are probably too complex to bother fleshing out.

    See, you're all going about it wrong. Animals represent personalities (although, they sometimes might be ironic or dark), not analogues for races.

    Nah, Donald HATED the Nazis. You should see some of the old war toons.

    ...careful of Bugs Nips the Nips, though, that one's just a tad on the side of disturbing.

    Japanese I'm having a bit of a time quantifying, but I'm thinking they'd be one of the indigenous dog breeds-remember, inbred and somewhat crazy.
    POSSIBLY a collection of the various Japanese dog breeds, mixed with tanuki and other indigenous fauna.

    The best of all settings-so yes.

    I'm not going to name this, because giving it a name just dooms it to failure-Unified Setting, anyone?

    So, right now, it's Talespin. It WAS Maus. Blacksad'll be in a few years, when a certain rooster starts going on drunkenly about commies.

    True, Donald did hate the Nazis... But the old war toon I saw had his conscience get the old mustache and bang comb stuck on it and I realized that Donald and Scrooge are both ridiculously bad-tempered, and could likely get riled up easily, much like Hitler. What better reason to hate him?

    Also: Named races in Slipstream on page 13. Plenty besides the animal races, but the entry of Shark-men poses another question: Are we just doing mammal-reptile-bird or are we adding fish to the mix? At the risk of turning this into Spongebob? On one hand, no fish I can remember from Talespin, but on the other JAWESOME.

    Fish are troublesome. We need a food source for the majority of the races, and since we have a LOT of carnivores running around...fish seem the best idea.

    So the smarter fish are sentient-sharks, whales, dolphins, orcas. Everything else, you can eat.

    Thing is, the Japanese eat whale...how do the whales fight back?

    I don't know, I could go either way on fish. I rather liked that fish inn owner in FFIX. If fish are anthro-ized then they need be found somewhat loathsome by other species if only because they are always moist and oily.

    You'll notice that the WW2 war propaganda is totally different than the modern propaganda about the Nazis, considering it took them awhile to settle on a version of the Holocaust myth they liked.

    Not to mention that the Red Cross themselves searched the concentration camps and found no reason to think there was abuse going on, but I'm sure the Red Cross was in on it too.

    Well then I don't think we need to worry at all about the Nazis. However we might make mention of a political party in Germany, currently headed by a cat, which is promoting the German Shepard as the ideal domesticariate breed that all others should model themselves after.

    Dali whiskers and a sneer too?

    I image the transference from one animal characteristic to another to be a gradual buildup culminating with an emotional event.
    Childhood would be an ambiguous slow flux of phenotypes, but puberty would put a more solid face to specific animal type along with personality maturation.
    ... sometimes very suddenly.

    Loved the show. I mean you can make a setting out this, but I'd limit the number of animals that appear.

    I'd limit it to:


    Most the others animals were minor characters. We can have certain species represent cultural groups of the real world for example the Brown Bear & Black Bear be partially natives to North America...etc.

    I'd play this on the Savage Worlds system, great system for this type of stuff.

    Dude, we need some Casablanca/Tales-of-the-Golden-Monkey Nazi agent intrigue going on. Hunting political enemies and foreign spies in gin-joints the world over in the years before the war.
    That aging doberman with the eyepatch watching you from the corner? Yeah, he's a Kraut. No, don't let the accent fool ya. He fought in the Great War, and now, instead of hunting tanks, he hunts "the leader's" enemies on these islands.

    Of course, not all Nazis go cloaked, these are the years before the war so Nazism is a legitimate party and Germany a resurgent international power. Seeing an SS uniform is no more repugnant or scary than an military in these topical climes. Just depends who you're in trouble with.
    >> GURPSfag 06/01/09(Mon)06:47 No.4731305

    They don't need to be magic. Although having some element of the supernatural could add to the setting. Like maybe some snakes can hypnotize you with a glare, or a lion's roar can scare the living daylights out of just about anything, and elephants have extremely good memories.

    Not saying I'd give someone in this setting those abilities, but they'd be perfect for villains.

    As far as villainous elephants go: They all must look like Frankie Peanuts.

    -Nazi Alsatians.
    -Rats and Mice as cheap labor-but are we going to go completely the Maus route for this, or go with Blacksad's monkeys? Possibly a mix of every specie the Nazis didn't like?
    -Can be in the 30s, the 40s, or the 50s-30s for Pulp; 40s for War Stories; 50s for Red Scare, Noir, and Intrigues.
    -Lots of different races, corresponding.
