    Also, Why don't we try sending in a group of seven dwarves, all at least novice miners, with copper picks. Find a magma vent. Go all DF MAGMA DEATH on them all.

    and if they Mary Sue their way out of that, Dig to deep. and if they go out of that, Spam the boards to death with obviously superior universes beating the shit out of them.

    Alternatively, use the plan used by many an attacker here: Post so much furry porn that they can't avoid it. Perhaps re-direct the spambots.

    I have a plan. The RP forum is pretty much dead, no doubt due to the faggotry of those who run it. So we have free reign, for all intents and purposes, so long as we play by the rules.

    So here is plan. It's two waves. First is drow characters of whatever types we can manage, who go about the RPing as normal.

    Second waves is humans and dwarves and other "inferior" races that will act as slaves initially.

    In this situation, though the non-drow can never start out badass, they can become badass. Basically, we have our non-drow getting into contests with our drow, never anything like a rebellion because that would be deleted, and our drow throw the matches every time.

    Just picture that for a bit.

    I'm suprised how positive the idea of a DF dorf invasion is, but this is /tg/... Maybe send them in one at a time, with different enough backgrounds that they don't see it coming, and slowly get them to band together. Then, turn DT into DF, and burn the stinking elves with the blood of ARMOK (AKA magma).

    Exelent points, furry porn would either be celebrated (proving that they need more magma dumped on them to remove it properly) or would just make them aware of the attack... Guro would likely be a better attack method.

    hm... perhaps a few sacrificial Guro attacks after the initial Dorf insertion, to make them think that THAT is the attack? the Dorf group pretends to help deal with it like the rest of them, then waits for the perfect moment to attack.

    Urist Budgethammer it is. He drinks ale, and he's a leatherworker. He makes gas-masks so dwarves can live in their poisoned environment, as well as light armor. He uses a short sword as a primary weapon with a small shield reinforced with steel bands, and has a heavy crossbow slung over his back. He prefers the crossbow.

    That OK for a loadout? Leave the backstory to me.

    Also, in the spirit of Dorf Fortress, every fa/tg/uy making a dwarf in there MUST have a profession. We'll play it off in our backstories as there being very few dwarves left, the remainder had to delegate jobs to each other. They're battle-hardened and grim, unless they're in their cups.

    Well, the whole point is that they don't just delete the threads. Wouldn't really need to much coordination, just a list of what characters are from /tg/. Maybe not even that, the RP forums are pretty dead.

    So it'd basically be just us doing the RP as would be normal for the forum, and setting up "rigged matches."

    The highest organization necessary would be someone posting on /tg/ to tell us that a rigged match is being set up so whoever wants to can get in on it.

    And it'll piss of Kern and his friends-in-fetish, without actually giving them a reason to stop us.

    Guro would seem like to obvious on an invasion. We -might- be able to work it in, if it were part of the story.. the lads from the fort fucking up some invading drow or the like. But if the goal is to try to fuck with their canon spamming guro would tip out hand way too early.

    We'd have to decide if we're there to troll, or to invade. Personally I'm leaning towards troll. Better payoff in the long run.

    We aren't a super-organized, civilized race in their eyes. We're the remnants from when drow were still evil. We see them as colonialists. We don't need any drow on the other side to maintain a facade, we're going to basically be considered antagonists anyway. Lets play the "evil" guys. We will need political strong-arms among us, though, but only after we retake a surface fortress. Our knowledge/near immunity to poison and ability to use gunpowder will strike fear enough into the Drow.

    BUT... BUT...

    >Berserking is not an advantage. It causes someone to give in to their anger, making them attack in an either unpredictable but sloppy way or a enraged but simple way. Either way, any skilled fighter will find it laughably easy to parry, deflect, and beat such a person. There is a reason that people taunt others in a fight. Berserking does not make you immune to pain or damage. Furthermore, controlling your rage, or your anger, means to not succumb to it. Please avoid Berserking in future characters.

    We just have to give them a real-life example. Don't treat them as stupid, treat them as misinformed.

    The actual fit of madness the berserker experienced was referred to as bärsärkar-gång ("going berserk"). This condition has been described as follows:

    This fury, which was called berserkergang, occurred not only in the heat of battle, but also during laborious work. Men who were thus seized performed things which otherwise seemed impossible for human power. This condition is said to have begun with shivering, chattering of the teeth, and chill in the body, and then the face swelled and changed its colour. With this was connected a great hot-headedness, which at last gave over into a great rage, under which they howled as wild animals, bit the edge of their shields, and cut down everything they met without discriminating between friend or foe. When this condition ceased, a great dulling of the mind and feebleness followed, which could last for one or several days.

    Right on Wikipedia. Sources of it trace to either psychological conditions/triggers or SHROOMZ.

    Okay, I have a mission for you:

    Do some research on the actual Berserkers of old Nordic tradition. Put together a sober, serious, and well-written report on it, citing valid sources (NOT WIKIPEDIA) and showing that there is historical precedent for the berserker stereotype, and that they WERE effective in combat.

    I do not believe for a moment that this would cause him to renege the point he tried to make. No sir, it should only cause him to post more rage-inducing and mind-boggling justification for why the perfect mary-sue negrelves are superior to everything ever.

    I read up on the setting a bit. Drow and other fae, when coming together, form a mana 'pool' from which they can draw mana for spells, such as the blocking one in those pictures.

    The conclusion is that Drow are weak alone, but strong in prepared groups.

The caves around the lake are dangerous, as the lake often floods, and to the eyes of a Drow the area is much like a real-life version of hell.

    Done right the whole setup wasn't to shoot drow with the guns. Draw them into place with light cannon fire you know they can bullshit magic their way past. Then lay down heavy gas, pull out your forces and blow set charges and bring the fucking cavern down on top of them. You can excavate out the corpses later.

    Anything that is not fae cannot use magic.

    Fae include elves and driders.

    Humans lack auras, so do dwarfs and orcs. The only benefit to this is that they can't be possessed by demons or detected by aura detection magic.

    Otherwise, they're as vulnerable to it as ever.

    We can't go around inventing our own shit, we'll be thrown out before you can blink.

    The only projectiles we have access to are shoulder-mounted cannons. Sure, dwarf satchel charges and *maybe* dwarf landmines (reactive chemical stored in a vial in the middle of a gunpowder satchel charge, when the vial is smashed, reaction, boom) but other than that, we're kind of on our own.

    Oh, we also have access to poisonous chemical rocks.

    I know that sounds like a quitter thing to do, but you have to imagine, even these folk have to get bored of being Mary Sues all the time. They want people they can prevail against. What we have to do is to trip them up in their own character, we have to write them into holes where even they can't justify escape or dodging.

    The only way to win is through roleplay and exploitation of their own egos. It doesn't matter how awesome we make ourselves if they godmode, which I hope they don't.

    /tg/, I love you guys, but the obvious trolling in this thread will kill this before it starts.

    Bro names? Seriously? That's going to get shot down so fast it's not even funny. You don't have to take this shit seriously, but you have to put on a facade of taking it seriously enough that they won't think you're up to no good, started making trouble in their neighborhood.

    Make real dorfy names and dorfy backstories that are as authentic as you can make them. If there is demand, I could go over this, but most of you are seasoned roleplayers so no goddamn excuses.

    If we want to stage a proper dorfy invasion this shit has to seem authentic. The more authentic it is, and the more we play exactly by the rules (if skirting the line as much as we can) the more successful we will be. If they squelch us for staying inside the lines, they will look like provable asshats and trolling will be successful. If we start obvious shit and go outside the lines before we're even of the ground, we'll be the ones to look like assholes and fission will be mailed.

    To summarize, it seems to me that the plan of attack is thus:

    We will register seemingly authentic dwarfy characters. These characters will all be "Free Dwarves" or free peoples of other races such as humans, orcs, half-orcs, and goblins, though the primary focus of players should be on dwarves.
    These characters will not be warriors, for the most part. They may have combat and survival skills, as is the necessity in such a harsh place as the streets of Chel'el, but we are tradesman foremost. Craftsdwarves, ironmongers, cooks, miners, managers. Dwarves who get shit done.

    >Phoenix' Eye:
    >South of Raveran, not far from the road leading to Chel'el'Sussoloth, lies the lava lake Phoenix' Eye. The caves around the lake are dangerous, as the lake often floods, and to the eyes of a Drow the area is much like a real-life version of hell. Rumour has it something lives within the molten rock, but these rumours have never been substantiated.

    This is where we plan to embark. A hazardous place for the Drow, and far enough from their precious clan city to avoid attention too soon, conveniently safe from the meddling ways of the Val.
    The whispers shall go out in the streets of Chel'el, calling all free non-elven people to embark, against risk and certain peril, to seek freedom, freedom from the gutter, freedom from being trodden upon by the dark-skinned overlords.

    This, gentlemen, is how it begins. Not with trumpets, and not with promises of gold and silver, but with the quiet whisper of freedom.

    Strike the earth.

    Also, as I mentioned before, they won't screw us over too early, simply because in our fetal form we represent all that makes them feel superior to the other races. It's their time to shine, whether it's to pity us or to scheme.

    Hopefully this time we'll be more prepared. This is hardly deep cover anymore. We're joining this and doing our damndest to beat them at their own game, to show them that drow can be overthrown by clever 'lesser' races in sufficient numbers with sufficient intelligence.

    They only think the drow are invincible, and if they pull that way too much, their bias becomes apparent. If they let that happen then only the most die hard poster will be disgusted, amused, or both. They lose their chance to have a stable opponent they can 'best' constantly.

    When the elves do start to rile some shit up, we will goddamn make them pay. We may not have direct access to magic, but dwarves are builders.

    Fuck yeah! For those not in the know, the tainted are basically Drow infested with demons. The main conflict in the Drowtales universe is "Infesting yourself with AIDS is a good idea!" versus "People who are infected with AIDS are monsters undeserving of sympathy!". Seriously. For more on in-universe philosophy, look up the warrior poet style Berserker of that one demon sympathizer clan.

    But, and yes I will admit to finding and reading the sidestories, the in-universe representation of the Tainted is that they are "just trying to live and make a home for themselves" while also being "craft and malicious." They are both, at the same time, angsty Mary Sue characters (oh my life is PAIIIINN) and the Cardboard Villains of the entire franchise. They are also Drow, and canonically a credible threat. They are also ALSO detesting of most of the culture they come from and their laws and customs, and therefore capable of being non-fae sympathizers.

    And, if they ever let their "seed" (the demon implanted in them) take them over, they can't infect us, because we have no auras, but they can infect a ton of Drow PCs via AIDS-bomb (with RP consent, I imagine).

    In short, the perfect allies.

    >Humans fates are sealed NO MATTER WHAT. What would win in a battle? A bear, or a trout? The bear obviously. The drow are the bear and the human are the trout. They are simply farther down the food chain, end of story. Most of their civilization, as Madea has said, is built upon drow technology, which is incompatible with their species. While yes, Drow tend to be quite backstabbing and murderous at times, they still understand the concept of survival and profit, and Drow won't kill someone if they have nothing to gain from it: Which is more common than stabbing your neighbor. And seeing as the time time it takes for a drow to reach adult hood is equal to about 1-1/2 to 2 generations of humans, the Drow can just plain outlive them, keeping all their experience that would take lifetimes for humans to learn.

    This is from a Drow vs Humans thread on their forum, from the very same mod who was bashing the guy who tried to justify Berzerking.

    This is a pointless endeavor. We cannot win.

    And he keeps saying shit about the 'food chain' and how Drows are on top of it, end of discussion, rocks fall:everyone dies spare the Drow. If you try to advance your technology? He also said the Drow would be able to advance their magic at a faster pace and it would just end if you getting rapped faster.

    Note this is all about Humans, but I doubt he would change anything if it came to Dwarfs.

    Speaking of which, this will need to happen early on:
    Establish an electoral government.

    One of the first things that should happen in the RP is the first group of Dwarves sitting down around a stone table in a meager hut constructed in the light of the magma river. Within, the first dwarves who have decided to form the settlement agree that we cannot fall prey to the corrupt and oppressive method that the elves have used to control their people for generations. We must agree that an electoral system, wherein the mayor is chosen from the people, by the people, a democratic system of election and re-election is clearly established, and the first leader chosen by the members of the council (who it is doesn't really matter, as long as they know what they're getting into). Then the council disbands, and begins the hard work of bringing the site into operation, creating simple fortifications and shelters. The only law of who is allowed to be the mayor (and eventually whatever higher seats are devised) is "No Elves". Elves are welcome, but this settlement must never be compromised by conflict of interest.

    We are not here to fight a war, not now, not ever. No player character is allowed to represent the Vals or their clans, because the Vals are "Kern's NPCs", so our only goal is to live our lives peacefully, coping with the problems of trying to create a survivable fortress in the inhospitable caves that surround us.

    We're not starting shit. If elf players start shit, we can deal with that in elegant ways that make us look awesome, and make them look like godmodding dicksucks. You think the average Drowtales RPer has read the Art of War? I can think of at least a dozen ways we could defeat incoming players without even fighting. Whatever works, works.

    In the end, we'll beat them at their own game if we do this right.

    What's the ultimate proof of a character (or in this case a race) being a mary sue? When they can overcome their disadvantages at the drop of a hat if it resolves any problems they are presented with.

    The biggest problem the drow have? Their culture doesn't think highly of "lesser races"... so a problem arises when a bunch of people playing these "lesser races" start their own society and prove that they're a capable, friendly, ethical people. If the drow follow their flaws and attack us, it places them in an ambiguous moral situation!
    Oh no! We can't have our sues maybe possibly looking to be a little in the wrong, what to do what to do...

    Oh, of course, how silly of me. They'll completely forget their racial bias at the drop of a hat to recognize how "fair and honest" our people are, becoming friendly and loving neighbors who stand on an even higher moral plateau because they've "forgiven" us for being the dirty shit-eating peasants that we are, and had the "charity" to let us have our little democracy.

    Either they break their sue code and look like true, honest-to-god villains (reverting to classic drow and vindicating us), or they sue-the-fuck-up and play nice-nice with us so that they look better, proving that dwarves and humans really aren't lesser at all. And now there's a non-canon dwarf fort outside of Chel'el (vindicating us, if less troll-like).

    Two possible locations:

    >Vloz'Raveran ruins:
    >Once a peaceful mining outpost, then for a short while an architecturial monstrosity of typical Vloz'ress design, the structure now lies in ruin, blocking the only known entrance to the mines below. Occasionally strange sounds can be heard coming from the mines, and noone knows what might be left down there. The Kyorl'solenurn are responsible for razing the fortress, and the only structure left standing is a small altar commemorating those drowussu lost to them beneath the tons of stone.

    >Phoenix' Eye:
    >South of Raveran, not far from the road leading to Chel'el'Sussoloth, lies the lava lake Phoenix' Eye. The caves around the lake are dangerous, as the lake often floods, and to the eyes of a Drow the area is much like a real-life version of hell. Rumour has it something lives within the molten rock, but these rumours have never been substantiated.

    We have two choices:
    1) An already partially prepared fortress, with resources available, as it is a mine. However, demons.
    2) A source of magma, but nothing's prepared. Also the hazard of hitting an underground magma stream when we try to dig.

    >However, demons.

    We are immune to demons because of our lack of auras. The only demons that can harm us are ones that have taken over their host and turned it into some sort of eldritch abomination. As far as my understanding goes.

    I know, I know. So annoying. And Parry/Deflect. I'm sorry but the whole point of berserking is sure you're unskilled but you can't be parried when you put your all into an axe.

    So, character traits we have so far:

    1) Switch up genders when we interact with Drow and call it an accident "Yes, sir! Tha' 'twould be a foin purchase!" "It is MA'AM, you filthy Dwarf pest. I should eradicate your entire species for this slight." "D'oh, forgive me ignorance, madam! Ye see, moi soight ain't wot it used t'be, and Aye'm used to Dwarven women tha' look just like the men!" (forgive my shitty Dorf accent. I'll refine it later)

    2) Ascribing Dorfy names to replace stupid Drow names for everything, with a conspicuous absence of apostrophes.

    you don't try to parry a berserker, you run away from and pelt with arrows. If you're drawn into melee with a berserker you're dead and if you're skilled he's dead too.

    The issue with fighting a berserker is not adrenaline or retard strength, it's the fact that this guy just wants to kill you and cares nothing about surviving killing you. Skill with weapons means breaking through defences, not breaking through aggressions and counters mean little if you're staggering from each strike parried/dodged, which you will be doing if the berserker has ever wielded a weapon before in his life

    They're already called clans. The Vals are a rank in the clan.

    Regardless, we can easily come up with multiple nicknames for each one. No reason to be uniform about it. This is dorfy motherfuckin' gutter slang we're talkin here. We're supposed to be uncivilized, let's act like it and shove it up their noses!

    I'd argue that they could be useful - Tainted who can Summon can do it in the middle of a Clan's habitation quarter (Which is as a good warfare method) and can use Spells. Plus, with enough knowledge, they can taint other Drow, specially those that would kill themselves after being tainted or those that would be killed on sight by the other, fairer skinned, Drow.

    I don't mind at all, if that is the consensus of the majority of people.

    What about a dwarven language?

    We could throw together a cipher and a grammar obfuscation method that makes everything sound dorfy. If we abuse it, the mods will demand that we translate it, but using it for dwarven names and phrases could generate a lot interest. We don't have to come out and say "this is our sekrit tongue!", it could appear to just be the funny little noises made by a lesser race, like the bark of a dog. It's the perfect explanation for if the mods demand that we translate it.

    The best case scenario is that the other players assume it is nonsense, and try to talk like a dwarf as if they understand it (because drow know everything).

    >They make deals with the dwarves for safe passage because it would be hell of annoying to keep being bombarded by stumpy little duergars, it slows things down. The easiest solution for safe passage would be through that, the drow can easily take out the dwarves and thus eliminate the annoyance if they really wanted to put their efforts into it. Problem is the dwarves are snuggled in little crevices all around the underworld, and it would be too costly to go ahead and eliminate the last of their race. Whats the point? They are only a minor inconvenience, they are near death and fail as a race, there is no need for the drow to go ahead and wage war on dwarves when they can just make a quick and easy deal. Its not fear, its annoyance.

They had a guarantee for safe passage, and covering the caravans with steel is just heavy. And keep in mind the Sarghress are one of the poorer clans of the Great Clans, so their representation of steel and armor would pale in comparison to say a Sharen's wealthier armor.

    Yes, but do you understand it without taking some effort?

    Let's invent some cultural effect of Dwarves being inherently inbred, unintelligent lowlifes, in that they have to actually think when they attempt to translate what another of their kind says to them, and they only half get the gist of it and mostly communicate through common cultural understanding. This will also go a long way toward cementing our brotherhood when the final Mary Sue battle comes knocking at our innocent, hardworking doorstep.

    So I'm working on my character (Goram) here, and I want to be a Forager and Cook. I'm thinking of giving him a very meager business relationship with the Sarghress (as I recall, established as canon a few chapters back) that "upset him when he heard the trade routes were attacked" and he's "waiting for his friends from the Drow community to come bringing their exotic meats in trade for his spices".

    Also, he's going to have almost no combat skills except the bare minimal for survival, which will have the mods slavering and stroking their dicks at the prospect of a nice submissive dorf who won't try to upset their status quo.

    I just want to play a good cook and a scampy little scavenger, is all.

    >But back in subject, Dwarven cannon launchers/guns are rather odd. It seems to hook around the shoulder, its portable, and it delivers a shattering force. But it seems weird for them have the design as mentioned by the OP, so we can safely assume that the duergars haven't advanced. And also keep in mind this, prior to the elven invasion, the duergars were the dominant race in the Underworld and they only had each other to war with, I'm pretty their weapon technology wasn't advance because there wasn't a need to advance it. When the time came when it was necessary, it was too late, and they lacked the unity and stability to further improve on their weapons.

    >I had the impression the Duergars were a peaceful race, with a few renegades and those came just as their race was being decimated.

    >As for the offscreen kills, those kills mostly came from the surprise if any came.
    And they most likely were serious injuries due the armored nature of the Highland raiders
    Couple that with the fact that the Highland Raiders are among the elite of the Sarghress and are used to attacks, they were fast to jump into defensive position. Hence huge joint mana shield.

    >Taking THAT into account, the casualties are little to none.

    So, let me get this straight. Drows are perfect to the nth degree and all-powerful, and all have magical abilities, and are master blacksmiths, and stay cute and chibi for most of their life, perfect warriors, "master tactians", and all have fair skin and are beautiful
    while every other race are dumb, insignificant, beasts with shoddy, inferior weaponry, no magic, weak fighters, sloppy craftsmen, and have no order to save their lives.
    So basically Drow are like the guys from Globe-O-Gym from Dodgeball. "We're better than you. And we know it."

    Not example the same idea. We roleplay a group of lesser races who simply seek freedom and the ability to make a life of their own, in a sort of TTGL fashion. There are three outcomes:

    1) We're not bothered at all. This is fun for us, but also impossible. Eventually, someone will gain interest. Which will lead to one of the follow.
    2) The Drow players show respect for our characters and allow us to continue living like this, and we can accuse them of MASSIVELY deviating from how Kern's drow behave.
    3) They move to attack the dwarfs. Whether they win or not, we get to point out just how sickeningly evil Kern's drow actually are, and say shame on them for their drow worship.

    So either they get their Mary Sue on and spare the nice little lesser races, deviating from Kern's law and earning his wrath, or they attack, and prove that their characters are *not* nice whatsoever and reveal how evil Drow are.

    Currently "reading" (read: looking at pictures) chapter 19. And one thing hits me... it doesn't look half-bad in black and white and devoid of all the cutesy-wutesy.

    If it wasn't for the pointy ears it could do for Exalted inspiration...
    >> Warp Infused Grey Knight 03/17/10(Wed)09:36 No.8632081
    I swear the COMIC was better before they went and redid it all. (Was it back when Kern did all the art himself?) Less cutesy wutesy and sickening. More "This is a webcomic. I shall treat it like one.".

    No matter how many times I see this it will always make me rage. As soon as he starts panelling from right to left and changes his style it could pass for a manga.

    In comparison to this, though, the art quality was shitty.

    ... Then again.

    In comparison to the original artwork, every other webcomic was shitty.

    Hey, Fumbles.

    You should play a human instead. For your jack of all trades.

    Much more suitable than a dwarf or an orc.
    >> Warp Infused Grey Knight 03/17/10(Wed)11:09 No.8632954
    True. Fumbles generally is human. Should he be a surfacer? That allows for me to follow the COUSIN rule. (Fumbles family line names the firstborn son Fumbles bestowing the bad luck of the family into that child only, allowing the others to lead rich fulfilling lives. Mostly a superstition but Fumbles are still unnaturally unlucky.)

    Sure. I suppose his village could've been raided, he could've been captured and sold into slavery as a servant or something as when his owner was brutally murdered, he had to run for his miserable little life before being killed too.
    >> Warp Infused Grey Knight 03/17/10(Wed)11:21 No.8633065
    That works. But being Fumbles he could've just as easily wandered down on accident. "Oh hey what's this coin doing her-" *trips on rock falling into an empty well* "Oh well buggery." *digs way into a cave system getting stuck in the underdark* "FFFFFFFFFF-"

    Blows up the house on accident using a toothbrush, a plate, a tube and a frilly dress. He was later seen making his escape from the scene of the crime wearing said dress.

    If he *does* blow up the house, however, make it be more than that.

    More than just blowing it up?
    How so?
    >> Anonymous 03/17/10(Wed)11:41 No.8633240
    I mean, he'll need more than tube, a toothbrush (if they even exist), a frilly dress and a plate to blow up a building with.

    After all, this site is DEADLY SERIOUS AND GOTHIC AND LOW MAGIC (according to them at least), so don't overdo the comedy.
    >> Warp Infused Grey Knight 03/17/10(Wed)11:45 No.8633285
    Oh I'll have it be serious. But completely on accident. He was attempting a trick he saw a street entertainer do back on the surface, where you spin a plate on a stick. He thought'd be easier with a llarge tube. (The toothbrush was for once he got better, he was in the middle of taking his masters dress to the tailor at the time.) This did not go well and the plate went flying off. It lodged itself into a magical mcguffin like item, (Possibly a golem) he tried prying it out with a toothbrush when BOOM. He managed to survive the explosion at the cost of his clothing and eyebrows. The dress was held behind him at the time and protected from the magical explosion, this destroyed a section of the drows house and forced him to flee.

    Yep. Still kicking.
    Also, Grogbowl here. Was thinking of being a Feral, but I don't know how they work. Are they just like your average lizardman or gnoll? I figure that's the one thing we don't have yet, so best represent all our oppressed species.

    Pic possibly related?

    Ferals are furries. Like catgirls and shiz. I have not seen a non furry Feral.

    From what we've seen so far, the only Ferals have been tame and the only Ferals have been catpeople.

    Honestly, I would make a thread about ferals in the World & Setting section of their forum. If you've got your account confirmed.

    God damn. Goram Forageater here (I think that might be my real last name, or perhaps a backstory'd in made up one). Thread still exists, and now we have fleshed out character concepts?

    And Jesus Fucking Christ, Fumbles. If your character survives creation process (you can always take him to the newbie thread and pose it as a comic relief in a world of grimdark srs to see if you can't find out what will fly), I am proposing you as the official mascot of our efforts whenever you get down to our little hovel to chill with the rest of your bros.

    In otherwords, start doing a little prodding, see if a mod can come up with some comprehensive limitations on what you can do and find out if any of those limitations allow non-furry.
