Gentlemen. Scholars. Evil Wizards.How does one run a Space Jam pen and paper game?Thread theme song:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRiNCdqpwzc
I don't think this is possible. It would require the combined efforts of /co/, /sp/, and /tg/ to harness the raw amount of awesome play such a thing.
Fact, any movie with Bill Murray is automatically good.
>>24408793You might even need the better parts of /v/ in on this for any splatbooks.
can we actually do this please? thank you
>>24408899I can't think of any system that could handle this.Honestly can't.
>>24408927so... shall we make one?
Joking aside, what do you mean a Space Jam game?A Warner Brothers NBA crossover or just anything NBA crossover?GURPS
>>24408937I can't even think of how a system could handle Looney Toon powers. It would have to be powered by comedy and sheer funny.
Here I come king of Jams, do you have enough slams in stock?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgtxb9yBggc

>Not posting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A765O7Or_NwYou have seriously let me down /tg/.
The reason Space Jam is such a good movie, is because it's based on a true story.

>>24409278>>24409283>gotta slam fast mind
This thread illustrates one of the core mechanics of the game perfectly. Each player and named enemy must have their own personal slam jam theme, and it begins playing whenever they roll a SlamJam(crit), obviously a character would get bonuses so long as their slam theme is playing (should be referred to as an "On fire" bonus) until a different player SlamJams and takes the "On Fire" bonus by playing their own Slam Theme
>>24409373That is beautiful.>300,000 oontnrI think captcha is trying to tell us something...

You dare laugh at the jesters of dunk? We came here to terrify and humilliate you, not tickle your funny bones. Watch, as I humilliate your civilization by passing the ball to Curly Joe... only to have it stay in my hand with elastic!

DribblePassShootSlamLong ago, the four styles lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Pass Nation attacked. Only the Jamatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished. A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Jamatar, a slambender named Barkley. And although his slambending skills are great, he has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone. But I believe Barkley can save the world.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfmNRFJcHxs
>>24409643It's impossible. No system can handle that much Jam
>>24409752Damn it, we have to TRY!
>>24409768I'M GIVING HER ALL SHE'S GOT CAPTAIN! SHE CAN'T TAKE MUCH MORE!
>>24409601I love the resurgence of Batman Beyond Netflix has gifted us with.
My friend's Mutants and Masterminds game might go this way since all of the PC's are black in some way or another. Adam Jensen is from Detroit, so he is an honorary black man.
>>24409899I didn't ask for excuses, Slammy! Mister Sulhoop! Give me dunk nine!
Skills:JukeFast BreakLob ShotBounce Passfill in the rest with other common basketball stuff.Add any of these to any exhisting system to creat the backbone of the mechanics.Alternatively, play Toon.
Some one ran Charles Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden in Dungeons the Dragoning 40k
>>24410058DtDIt works. It works perfectly. Holy shit.
>>24410072Somebody get on this, stat.
>>24410072I once used Pathfinder to run a Indian In the cupboard game and one of the villains was Charles Barkley...I will gladly tell the tale if those who wish to hear it will pull up a chair.
>>24410121Begin right the fuck now.
>>24410121/tg/ is always ready for story time.
>>24410121Well the party was made up of a mish mash of character half of them were your basic D&D party the other half were basicly disney characters. They awoke in the cupboard not knowing each other and the sound of what seems to be apes above them. They push open the cupboard to find themselves in a canyon to them but it was actually a little boys bedroom that had a western Motif. Above them red orangutans flung poo and grenades at them. They soon escaped out of the cupboard and found themselves on a desk and face to face with a world war two army sergeant with an A1 thompson.
I think you all ought to know that the original Space Jam site is still live.Copyright 1996.http://www2.warnerbros.com/spacejam/movie/jam.htm
>>24410197The party was basicly Human rogue/fighter who used a magical sock of pennys.A Gnomish Fairy Hunter.A Jinn.A pixie.An Greek Style Oracle.And a Dwarven barbarian.They quickly found the army sargent wasnt unfreindly and were brought into a mouse hole and taken up a ladder made of nails to an airduct and brought to the homes sealed off attic. Inside was a matropolis of toys that were once innanimate now made real. Among them were Optimus prime, A space marine(The boy stole one of his older brothers models) and one or two other key toys now made real. Given the parties talents they were given training in modern weapons guns and such as to keep up with the Enemy. The great and Mighty Bey (pronounced Bee)
>>24410258I am so glad I don't have classes tomorrow morning.
BBEG BATTLE THEME:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3tkaVcYgPA
>>24410258Outfitted with weapons and told to head the the homes Garage to fight the most dangerous foe at hand Charles Barkley. He was more powerful than the great Bea so therefore had his own mighty fortress. They were taken by Apache Helicopter (this kid had some impressive goddamn toys I tell you) through the houses airducts fighting off drones set out by the enemy. (micro machines driven by those tiny star wars figures that came in the playsets that were heads of various characters)
>>24410321They made it to the doggy door that went into the garage the family not home at this time due to it being a weekday. Oh I forgot to tell you all why they were fighting for. The Cupboard is a powerful magical artifact that any toy put within is made real but stays the same size. They are fighting over the territory of the desk and the boys room. The great bea wishes to take over the home then the neighborhood then the world with powerful technology from other worlds and Optimus prime and the council he leads wishes to return all of the characters to their own worlds. >>24410321
>>24410392Now back to the action. They are dropped by the doggy door Vietnam style and the fighter/rogue leads the way with two of the characters covering them from a distance with sniper rifles. They soon find that the gerage is a haven for snipers and take out most of them one of them being Cobra Commander and a few others. But once they get under the old car in the garage they realise its a haven for Xenomorphs who have taken a liking the old wiring and pipes. Making their way across this deathtrap to a tool box against the wall. Barkleys fortress that lead into concrete under the garage but as they moved close they noticed strange markings outside of it. A basketball court to you and me.
>>24410445Oh god here we go.
>>24410445As they approach a basket ball bounces from the darkness of the tool box. And almost crushes them being a big bigger then them. Barkley rises from the top of it being in once toy form a Todd Mcfarlane action figure so being much larger than the party being gargantuan size compared to them. He challenged The fighter/rogue to a one and one basketball game.
>>24410499A bit of fast and loose rules allowing the party to buff and increase their fighter to barkleys size the match began. I decided to do dex/str vs Dex/Str checks to make it fair and simple. Barkley being a master of Slams and Jams began to drop heavy bombs that damaged and debuffed the party with Morale negatives. But....then godzilla got busy.
>>24410392Oh shit I know where that cupboard is fromthat was an alright book
>>24410526With a mighty SKREEEEORNK godzilla king of the monsters treading in with a nice pair of Nikeys stepped around the edge of the door across the room. His intent upon the B-Ball game at hand. Using this moment of confusion the fighter used his magical sock of pennies to smash Barkley across the face and snag the ball and bring it downtown for dunk.
>>24409768Well, start with stats. Something like;STRENGTHSPEEDSPECIALOn a scale of 1-10 with a 15 point buy using D20 rolls for success.Each one of those stats can be used for an ACTION, such as, a STRENGTH ACTION, or a SPEED ACTION.>In example a SPEED ACTION to race the opponent downcourt would be a dc 10 check, +2 dc for every opponent adjacent to your path, and +2 dc if the opponent has a higher SPEED than you. Success means that your MOVE takes priority over everyone else's.>REACTION ACTION would give extra actions to anyone provoked by your action, such as the aforementioned defensive player choosing to follow you, get in your way, and block your progress. These are done simultaneously, meaning that if your opponent fails their ACTION, you can stay beside them during their turn, or if your SPEED is high enough, even cut them off.>This means that a lot can happen in just 6 seconds, its a fast paced game unless you choose a slow and non-provoking strategy of attack.In a comprehensive rulebook, you may want to simply say that "run" or "sprint" is the key word for a movement based SPEED ACTION.Combining the above stats you can derive SECONDARY STATSENDURANCE is STRENGTH + 1/2 SPECIALDODGE is SPEED + 1/2 SPECIALYou also combine stats using PRIMARY plus 2 for a SECONDARY stat greater than 5 for a JAM ACTIONSuch as DUNK (Strength [+2 if SPEED >5])Or SHOOT (Speed [+2 if STRENGTH >5])Or OVERRUN (Strength [+2 if SPECIAL >5])The times when SPECIAL is used as a PRIMARY stat can be expanded upon with POWERs.TRAITs can offer POWERSs or a stat point in exchange for some negative effect. Limit 1 (maybe 2).The economy of stat points will keep things from getting out of control, dump stats may be punished if you don't play carefully. You will also have to rely on your whole team unless you enjoy DCs getting jacked by +2 +2 +2 +2.Thoughts?
>>24410542It was also a movie my friend
>>24410565My thoughts are basically 'have my babies'.
>>24410560Barkley fell clutching his face the skin falling away revealing dark brooding chaos black scales and a hundred blinking hateful eyes. He roared in hate and snatched the B-Ball away it bounced gaining speed and smashing into the floor cracking the concrete beneath it. It was deafening like the sound of someone getting their skull smashed in with a Victrola. Godzilla stepped into the court checking the ball with barkley and now it was a two on one with the fighter the the king of monsters vs Barkley.
>>24410565While I admire the effort, d20 wouldn't work for this.Someone call Lawful Nice!
>>24410614Barkley began to move left and right going for the ball but Zilla and the fighter were too quick. Points were scored and hit points were lost all around. But soon Barkley had the ball. He began to form a strange Kata before them and a portal began to form. He was performing a chaos dunk....
>>24410542You only just figured that out? /tg/ has gone over this concept a few times, albeit not in a game, and not this SLAMMIN'! Think about it, you could converse with the greatest minds of history, get a round table going with Jesus, Mohamed, Buddha, and Siddhartha. Or, since this is /tg/ you could do a mini version of pic related.
>>24410670Or, even more likely, both at the same time. Answer the age old question: does Jesus know kung-fu?
>>24410670>since this is /tg/ you could do a mini version of pic related.Or this.
>>24410696the more pertinent question is whether Jesus has improved his weak layups.
>>24410656The Portal ripped open and the fires and the endless abyss began to peer into reality. Barkley began to bring the ball down into the hoop and in one final effort of skill godzilla used his tail to spring the fighter for the ball. He with great luck swatted the ball away from the hoop the chaos dunk beginning to collapse. dragging barkley into the fires of the abyss screaming revenge.
>>24410743The portal rocked the house to its foundations and they all held on for dear life to not get sucked into it. They saw the skin rip from barkleys face revealing a horrible creature that was not of this world or any other. It roared in hate and spoke to each of them in their minds. "My court will be open for you mortals in the darkest pits and I will be waiting..." The portal slammed closed the b-ball bouncing into our reality harmlessly landing against the wall slightly glittering with dark energy the party afraid to touch it godzilla snatched it up and dunked it one last time and let out a mighty SKREEEORNK in victory and stomped off in true king of the monsters fashion into the proverbial sunset leaving the party stunned and confused battered bruised but alive.
>>24410600Thanks.>>24410634It really doesn't matter which dice number you use, just the ratios. I like d20 system because "NAT 20!" is always a fun filled event to witness, and iconic of the gaming community at large.You can use DCs for tests not targeting players, SECONDARY STATs for player vs player test DCs, and CONTESTED ROLLs for player vs player ACTIONs (such as grabbing a player, including their ball, and dunking them. Or grappling, or pranks)Looney toon POWERs can be taken from a list or fabricated at character creation, in general becoming more effective based on SPECIAL.Optionally, for recurring "seasons" or adventures, you can have VETERAN and PRO rankings, giving +1 and then another +1 to something else if the character "levels up"Also allow for learning of more POWERs if you want a "level up" type system.Literally any stated action can be performed, and the GM(referree) can decide whether its a raw STAT check, or assign the action type as a JAM ACTION. Allowing for versatability in inclusing all manner of crazy rules, such as shooting MONSTAR teeth out with yosemite sam if you allow guns on a non-POWER basis.Meanwhile the rulebook will cover all obvious actions and necessary rules.
>>24410786AND SO FORTH BARKLEY IS NOW PART OF MY DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS MULTIVERSE FOR ALL TIME AS A LORD OF THE 34th LAYER OF THE ABYSS. And what happened to our heros did they ever get home did they fight the mighty Bea? that my friends is another story for another time.
>>24410826Also this is the best Slam Mix it was part of my soundtrack for this game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uints81YYMc
>>24409451Where's the picture?
COME ON AND SCABDEBABODADEBOODOOhttp://youtu.be/UIdXbczx2Ac
>>24408734Bump. The world weeps until this is developed.
Any Space Jam game that does not make showboating, wisecracks and intimidation key parts of the system is failing.We also need a mechanic for rousing speeches and "learning a valuable lesson"
>>24414346You level up by learning a valuable lesson. Social skills such as wisecracks directly correlate to "Jamming" and "Slamming">I run up to the defending animated dog man.>Alright initiate your throwdown,>"You think you can Jam with me sucka?!"[Rolls success + bonus for vocal slam]>That jive Slam gives you a +2 bonus to your Jam, How high are you going to take this?>"ALL. THE. WAY.">Ok roll your star field coloured inter-galactic jam dice, add your cool factor and subject your foes counter-slam.
This system shouldn't use dice.It should use cards.
Seriously, this thread needs to be archived right the fuck now
Need to have an announcer class!
>>24414630Runs around the court narrating, psyching up team mates and psyching out the opponants. Buffer class.
None of this has any right to be this awesome.Space Jam, all things considered, was just a bad movie from the mid-90's. Nostalgia alone is not sufficient to raise such a thing to these heights.Then what is it? Reveal to me the secrets of the slam!
We have archival.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/24408734/Vote, you ugly sons of bitches. Vote so hard the space-time continuum WARPS, so that we might slam harder.
>>24414923Fuck you, Space Jam was awesome.
>>24414923If you can't see why already, you don't deserve to know in the first place.
>>24414923Play Barkley: Shut up and Jam: Gaiden.
>>24408897Fucking stupid game made by faggots from a 4chan-copy forum. Drule, you can suck my dick. Omeg's a pretentious faggot ever since he because some dada convert and Dr_Funk was and will always be a tremedous tool, just like The_Truth.
>>24416112I meant became*, not because.The game itself isn't witty or amusing but decently built. Problem is the people who made it are scum. Good reason alone to ignore it.
>>24408734HeroQuest? GURPS? Another generalist game system?
>>24416112>>24416144Geez, man. You got some hardcore vendetta against Shut Up and Jam! Gaiden don't you?
>>24416254No, just the shitty forum that spawned it, GamingWorld.
>>24416112Have you tried playing the game?
>>24416387I don't even know about the people you're talking about. What about Chef?
>>24416784Chef was cool but never really stuck out much, like Bart. I remember when Bart had a big shitfest over everyone and I think he threatened to close down the website or something. Nigga was HUGE and unstable.
>>24416995Well, okay. It's good to know that Chef wasn't a faggot.
>>24414664If you have two of them, they get a Banter Bonus for making Wisecrack Combos.
>>24414923I actually rewatched it a few weeks ago. It was still great. You also have to realize that its a period piece. That movie, while little more than a marketing scheme on the surface, was the epitome of the 90s. Crossovers and crass consumerism and sports stars doing things they shouldn't with just a dash of Bill Murray was what the era was all about. I dont know how else to describe it except that the movie was 90s as fuck.
