Hey guys, I'm writing a story about Rapist Gerbils, and one of them is named /tg/.In fact, all the Rapist Gerbils are named after different 4chan boards. And luckily for you, that means you not only get to contribute your own fanfiction of my story, but you're allowed to draw art of these Rapist Gerbils! Lucky you!To help convince you to draw art and write about these Rapist Gerbils named after the different boards, I'm going to bump this thread for the next few weeks, so you get to watch the amusing antics of Rapist Gerbil /tg/ develop and evolve!So, first order of business is: Which of the boards should /tg/ rape first? Or is he/she one of the gerbils that end up getting raped?It's up to you to decide! What fun!
Do they have to be rapists? Why not just cute gerbils that like to do cute things and just happen to be named after the boards?Sort of like hamtaro, except 4chan.4chantaro.
>>35735158Someone sure is buttmad about the Winter Ball threads.
>>35735189I like them all being rapists, but I guess you can do whatever you want.
>>35735189>Sort of like hamtaro, except 4chan.so rapists
>>35735232Honestly, I'd rather have gerbil rape than whatever the hell that train-crash is supposed to be.
>>35735158here you go
>>35735189This is actually a genuinely good idea.I think 4chantaro /tg/ should be a girl gerbil. And she can be white and have 6 black dots on her back arranged like a die.
>>35735304Amazing.What museum can I find the rest of your work?Because your skills are priceless.
>>35735307The dots change based on her luck and how well she accomplishes a task
>>35735377museum of no u
>>35735387That's pretty neat.>>35735307The problem is she needs something distinguishable about her from the front (since that's how you'll see her most often), either a tuft of hair or a bow tie or ear muffs or a scarf, or something.
>>35735449Thick tufts of fur around the neck. Just like a fa/tg/uy.
>>35735501Maybe something like a typhlosion?
>>35735701No, the other way around. Like a feather boa, but with fur.
>>35735540>>35735701>>35735737When does the rape start?
>>35735785Did you not see the other posts?>>35735189>>35735304
>>35735805>What are jokes?
>>35735158Come on, guy. I go to /vg/ for shitposting like this, man.What is this even supposed to be?
>>35735913It's trying to promote inter-board relationships, and it's just generally having fun.Why do you hate fun?
>>35735913It's someone's butthurt attempt at mocking the Winter Ball, and my outlet for drawing shitty rapist hamsters in MS Paint.
>>35735867I fucking love that smile.
>>35736088I should mention that is, in fact, its nose.
>>35736122Now it just looks like it has drool on it's cheek.
>>35736142I think that's stretching it a little. It definitely looks like a mouth and nose now.
>>35735449A shovel.Any hamster with a shovel is awesome.Look at that hamster with the shovel.Fucker looks boss as fuck.
>>35736264You can't decide what I see.
>>35736332He's got a scar, too. That way you can tell he's not afraid to fuck a bitch up with that shovel.
So /tg/ is a bow wearing female rapist gerbil.wat?
>>35735158Stand back! The hamster's gonna puke!
We should rape /pol/ this year. I'm sick of their shit, so let's have our gerbil rape their gerbil.Hooray interboard meta!
>>357379121.- our gerbil is a grill, how can a grill rape a male?2.- if they are the ones shitting our place up, arent they raping us?
>>35735449or great pendulas breastsgerbils are mamels right
>>35738060of course a woman can rape a man forced penetration is forced penetration
>>35736386I second these developments. Though remember /tg/taro is a girl, not a boy. A badass action girl hamster with a shovel and an eye scar. This thread is going places.
>>35741180/h/ I'm not sorry.
>>35741180Based drawfagWanna tackle /tg/taro as described here >>35740899
i bet the other boards have made nowwhere near as much progress on this as we have
>>35741229second this. You're a good artist. And hnnngh sweaters.
>>35741229Okay! I'll give it a shota dick/d/
Couldn't we have adolescent radioactive black belt hamsters instead of newborn 4channite rapist gerbils?
>>35741229I really don't know what you guys want. Did you want a cute monster girl type drawing a legitimate Hamtaro styled drawing . I was looking for the draw thread when this popped up and now I'm lost.
>>35741855BeautifulWe're totally ahead of the game on the 4chamtaro situation.
>>35741642>ripoff of TMNT>which is a ripoff of Daredevilwhat
>Rapist hapsters based on a old 90s anime aimed for little girls.And this is why I stay on 4chan. Never change, chums
>>35741225>>35741486I think you got your /h/ and /d/ mixed up
>>35735189 Rape can be cute.
>>35735189So we've got board-tans and board-taros?Maybe the Rape Gerbil thing could be an AU
Young adult books (and films) are part of a relatively new genre and they speak to the young adult inside us all, the part whose identity is yet unformed, full of rage and fear and longing. They’re not great literature, which is fine, because they’re not designed to be. The new teen dystopias are profoundly romantic, full of doomed crushes and broody heroes in tight athletic suits, but they resist portraying love as the answer to the heroine’s problems. Kissing is fantastic but what Katniss Everdeen, Tris Prior and Paige Mahoney need is someone with pretty eyes to help them bring down the government. Don’t we all?"There are clear reasons why this sort of story is appealing. The complete collapse of the narrative of what a secure future looks like for today’s young people and the grim messages about what the teenagers who grew up with Occupy and austerity have to look forward to as the planet heats up, the job market stutters, pension provision is depleted and the police get meaner have fostered a generational anxiety about how to cope with overmighty state power. These stories function both as manifesto and pressure release valve. They are escapist only in that they allow for the possibility of resistance. The message of The Hunger Games, like the message of The Bone Season, could not be starker: however much they make you fight one another, you must always “remember who the real enemy is”.Galees any
>OP is a butthurt shitposter>/tg/ starts producing OCI love you all elegan/tg/entlemen. (except OP. I hope he dies).
>>35743489Guy at my local flea market had, like, 30 of these things. Not 30 adolescent radioactive black belt hamsters, just a whole box dedicated to TMNT knockoffs, 90% done by this same company, all with the worst goddamn art.I would have bought them, but he wanted a dollar each and wouldn't haggle.
This is already a thousand times better than that stupid board tan shit.
>>35746043oh god thats incredible
>>35746299Not like that's hard.
>>35741919>4chamtaroIt's needs a spiffier title.
>/TransGender/ wants to be a girl hamster Why am I surprised?
>>35748073It was to subvert the expectation of a rapist being male
>>35746647But boardtans are fun
>>35748113Uh huh just admit you're all a bunch of closet transgirls
>>35748134Eh, /tg/ has a thing about being a cute little grill, but I don't think too many of us would want to be MTF women. That said, I enjoy my dick way too much to want to not have it.
>>35748073You do realize there's girls on /tg/, right?More importantly, the general tone of /tg/ has always been feminine.We're an imagination-based group that solves most of its issues with passive aggression.
>>35746318I took photos of my favorites, because, posterity.
>>35748379There are in fact next to no girls on /tg/. A few exceptions but seriously, /tg/ gets laid maybe once a year if it's lucky.
>>35748775I was going to object until I realized that after my last break up I went through an 8 month dry spell, and now I haven't gotten any in 2 months. God dammit.
>>35741855holy shit this is great.
>>35741855I'm quite happy with the Hamtaro style drawing. This is basically exactly what I wanted.
>>35741855Can this be the /tg/-board tan?She's awesome.
>>35752044The board-tans and the boardtaros are completely separate entities
i am personally for out gerbil being the rapeebut that's just me
>>35752804But Boardtaros are probably at least ten to twenty times better than the board tans.
>>35752804They're both unofficial avatars of /tg/.The only difference is this /tg/ is awesome.
>>35754809That's because it's drawn by tg drawfags, and not boardtan drawfags
>>35741642>adolescent radioactive black belt hamstersSometimes I forget how silly TMNT is.
I'm surprised there's already porn of this.
>>35736332>Fucker looks boss as fuck.He's so boss, that's his name.
We have to start spreading this to all the other boards soon. They should be the ones making their own boardtaros, it's only fair.
>>35741855>dice strapped to her back like a good luck charmYES!!
>>35741855Does she have a name, or is she just teegee?
>>35762986I like Teegee, it kind of looks feminine.
>>35735158Looking in the archives, there seems to be no gerbil threads, so we have the first board-taro, and that makes me happy.>>35763183I was just curious. I'm fine with Teegee.
>>35752044hopefully we'll get to use her for stuff.
>>35764460How about this>/tg/tan has a multitude of magical pets. A Pseudodragon, a small Ooze, a tiny sized earth elemental, that kind of thing.>Among these creatures is a Dire Rat named TeeGee.>To his knowledge, they're all just "animals" that he takes care of.>But whenever he isn't looking, TeeGee leads the others go on tiny sized cute adventures behind his back.
>>35764596Oh that's gold, little adventures through the 4chan mansion.You should mention this in the winterball thread, I'm sure someone will get on this. Eitherway, it will be carried over to the next one.
>>35765082Yeah, we definitely need more pictures of lil TeeGee.
Oh cool this thread isn't dead... Doing some small requests on Teegee or ideas for any other Boardtaros.
>>35765148Not sure about the other boardtaros, but I'd love to see a group pic of >>35764596>TeeGee >A smug looking Pseudodragon>A pile of rocks with a cutesy face>A slimeAlso, what do we think the names and the characterizations of the others be?As obvious as it is, I like the Pseudodragon being smug and aloof, partially because of the "Catlike" aspects of them. I picture the Earth Elemental as naive and simple, but utterly honest. Looks up to TeeGee a lot.TeeGee is firey and full of vim and a lust for adventure.The slime is shy and a little cowardly, but fiercely protective of his friends. He just wants to live a quiet life, but keeps getting dragged into crazy adventures by TeeGee and the gang.
>>35765148how about obligatory /vp/taro(s)? Maybe looking very similar to hamster looking pokemon.Are there hamster looking pokemon?
>>35765148I'd love to see one for /m/ or /tg/, but it might be weird for that to go on without their knowledge/permission. I'd take it to their next drawthreads.As for request.... any of the following.Teegee falling flat on her face, while dice pack only shows two 1s.Teegee with her shovel thrust in the air, or in some other kind of heroric weapon pose.Teegee burying a copy of FATAL in the ground.Whichever seems coolest.
>>35765300>>35765295maybe Sneasel, swinub, or zigzagoon.
>elegan/tg/entlemen>rapist gerbilIt is over. Reddit won. The traditions of yore are dead.
>>35765361nah, read the thread. We handled it pretty well.
>>35765361Did you even read the thread?
>>35765300Pikachu or any of its dertivies, Ratticate, Bidoof, Chansey.>>35765361God damn it, we turned rape gerbils into adorable hamhams going on adventures. Fuck off.
>>35765295Oh this looks like a fun project , give me some time.>>35765300Give me a half decent desciption ,I don't lurk /v/ enough to draw something personified enough.>>35765335Beautiful.. I'll see if i can take a shot at all 3.
>>35765370>>35765372You know very well that reading more than the first few posts before angrily replying is against The Code.
>>35765389>Chansey with a sunflower seed
>>35765396For the pokemon, go to /vp/ for one of their drawthreads. It's their board and their board-taro, so they should make the decision if they want one and how they want it.
>>35765444Honestly, this doesn't feel like the kind of thing that would necessarily spread the way Board-tans did.It might honestly be more fun to just have TeeGee and her monster friends exploring the 4chan Mansion together.
>>35765488Yeah, I know. That's part of why I said ask them if they EVEN WANT IT before making board-taros of them. I'd be fine with it just being a /tg/ thing.
>>35765911I think this is the beginning of something beautiful.
>>35765911I love you, drawfriend. It's better than I imagined.
>>35765911You are a fantastic person.
>>35746006If we didn't have people like OP, things like this would never happen. This is half the reason /tg/ was better before nazimod.
>>35748379>the general tone of /tg/ has always been feminine.You have a funny idea of what constitutes femininity.>>35748775There's plenty of girls here, by the standards of a 4chan board.
>>35752804I dunno, maybe the board-taros live in 4chan house too. There can be some setting overlap.
>>35766246We already established this in >>35764596
>>35748379It's funny because someone somewhere actually believes this and doesn't realize that /tg/ does get into shouting matches over lore and rules all the time.
>>35766310My god, you're really gonna do each one I suggested and do it as adorable as that? I'm fucking blushing right now.
>>35765295>a slime>not a tiny-sized gelatinous cubeStep up your game /tg/
I'm not too late to the party am I?
>>357652953 Done so far . just gotta finish the Pseudo Dragon.
>>35767160That's much more true to the Hamtaro style, nice job.
>>35767675The hair is still incompatible with the style, but the rest is right.
>>35767675Heh thanks,last time I ever drew in that style was when I was a little kid
>>35765295Okay this is as far as I'm going for tonight.>Alistair the cat/dragon.>Gobs the shy Slime>Urf the Earth Elemental>Teegee the Gerbil
>>35764596That's stupid on a level I can't even begin to express.This is way too cool to be any way associated with the "4chan House" thing, and more importantly calling a gerbil a dire rat still doesn't make any sense for the tan to own one.In any case, /tg/ the gerbil is way too free-spirited and awesome to be anything other than a feral gerbil.
>>35768646It's also the Board-tan people trying to steal actually good ideas, and then shitting upon them by bringing them into their diseased universe.Teegee loses almost all of what makes her cool if she has to be part of the stupid Winter Ball bullshit.
>>35768669>almost all of what makes her coolWhich is what, exactly?>if she has to be part of the stupid Winter Ball bullshitPretty sure nobody actually proposed that.
>>35768327This is kind of awkward.Mostly because it's trying to force a crew of monsters alongside a gerbil, which just doesn't make any sense.I think gerbil and more gerbils is better than this weird attempt to make teegee a board-tan's pet. It's probably best to keep these things as separate as possible anyway.
>>35768686>Pretty sure nobody actually proposed that.That's the first line of >>35764596>/tg/tan has a multitude of magical pets. A Pseudodragon, a small Ooze, a tiny sized earth elemental, that kind of thing.I'd much rather not go anywhere near that Winterball stuff.
>>35768892Even though this entire thing was a butthurt attempt by OP to mock the board-tans?
>>35768728I kind of like the monster crew.But yeah, steer clear of those Board-tan people, and let's not mention them in this thread again.
>>35768916Where does OP even mention anything like that?Also, this has grown into something a hundred times better than the board-tans.
>>35768781So everything related to board-tans is inherently related to the winter ball now? If the property of transitive association stretches that far for you, everything on /tg/ is related to the winter ball by merit of being on 4chan.
>>35735158No LARPing please! Fat fedora-wearing /tg/ gerbil must roleplay a rape with probably 2 other grebils 1 of which is female (or roleplays one) System is Gangrape with elements of FATAL, rolls for anal circumference are optional.
Eh I'm not hostile towards board-tan stuff,but if people are that up-to-arms about it I'd rather keep this separate from the board-tans.
>>35769039Winterball/Boardtan/4chan House/4chan Anime is all the same thing, I'm sorry if you're going to sperg about what term is used when.
>>35769140So if there's a ball in the summer, that's also winterball?
>>35735158Rape? RAPE? You SICK misogynist pigs! This site is vile and needs to die.
>>35769176>sperging this hard
>>35769140>Pro Tour/Magic the Gathering/FNM/EDH is all the same thing, I'm sorry if you're going to sperg about what term is used when.
>>35763332oh fuck yes
>>35759865why anon why are you suprised you should not be
>>35764596i did not realise it was possible to ejaculate from awesomness
>>35762734yes they should make there own but they dont get to until we have finished
>>35765389while i admire the work we have done i do think i would have prefered to keep the rape aspect
>>35768669theres more to board tans then the winter ball anon
>>35769360>>35769376>>35769389>>35769404>>35769423>>35769447tuypo, is that you?
>>35769423Well the obvious solution is to have cute hamsters end every adventure with the hero savagely raping or being savagely raped by one of their adventuring companions.
>>35769140there not the same thing you raging fagot
>>35769458holy shit it is how could you tell
>>35768728In the initial description it calls Tee Gee a Dire Rat that just happens to be cute as fuck. >>35764596
>>35769469i support this idea
>>35769484> it calls Tee Gee a Dire Rat that just happens to be cute as fuckExcept that a dire rat is the size of a dog, and looks nothing like a gerbil.It's really a bad stretch.Like, really, really bad.
>>35769447There is more to shit than diarrhea. Different flavors of shit are still shit.
>>35769580but board tans are great look at the incresed trafic we have been getting
>>35769484> cute as fuckWhat? Are you retarded or something? Or do you just use the word cute in a way I've never heard before?
>>35769580Man, don't reply to the board-tanites.Just let them stew in their own shit by themselves, and ignore them.
>>35769576Pseudodragon are cat sized and earth elemental and slime could all be however big they need to be for scale. Everything should be around the same size.
>>35769484That's really trying to shoehorn teegee into an idea she doesn't really fit into.Kind of like calling tamogatchi a shitzu and then entering it into a dog show.
>>35768327You did a good thing today, /tg/. The rest of the thread is shit though
>>35768327Wonderful. I like you.
>>35769606The thing that makes a dire rat "dire" is its size (and ferocity).Teegee isn't anything like a dire rat, since what separates Teegee from common gerbils is a degree of intelligence and a shovel.I know you're really trying to push this idea, but it's just not really clicking. It's really an odd-man out scenario, which is weird considering that the odd-man is supposed to be the central figure.
>>35769606>cat sizedThat's considerably smaller than a dire rat, which is dog sized. If you really wanted teegee to be a dire rat, then it would have to be the largest of the crew.
>>35769700> If you really wanted teegee to be a dire rat, then it would have to be the largest of the crew.Gerbils are supposed to be small and cute.I don't like the idea of a dog sized gerbil.It's kind of gross and creepy.
>>35769482>>35769474>>35769495>>35769588Your typing 'style' is rather distinguishable.
>>35769666Eh, if it's not clicking it's not clicking, but I'll support it with one last post.I think to say that all that separates Teegee from a common gerbil is intelligence and a shovel isn't quite right. Most gerbils I've ever known don't really do too much in the way of adventuring. As far as ferocity goes, it's there in her personality. >>35769700I guess I'm picturing different "Small Dogs" than you. Cause a Dire Rat is described as the size of a small dog, and even with the category "Small" dogs can range from Chiwawas to Shi Tzus to Beagles. I was imagining it as a smallish Shi Tzu, which puts it about on par with a house cat in terms of size.If you're still not feeling it though, her just being the Odd man out as a normal gerbil in the crew could work fine.
>>35769482>short one "sentence" posts>no commas>no periods>no capitalization>nothing at all except a tiny string of lower-case lettersHow many people do you think there are which act like as much of a faggot as you?
>>35769805> Cause a Dire Rat is described as the size of a small dogBasically, a dire rat's size category is small. That's where halflings, gnomes, and goblins fall into, and a "small dog" referes to pitbulls and collies rather than "large dogs" like mastiffs, and definitely not those "toy dogs" or "purse dogs" which are basically just rats.A cat's category is "tiny," while an actual gerbi is "Diminutive," which is another shade smaller.
>>35769893If you look at tumblr, about 90 percent of their userbase. Here on the other hand...
>>35769933Couldn't be tumblr, not eNOUGH RANDOM CAPITALIZATION
Welp this thread was a bunch of fun. I can make changes to any of the characters. I'm not good words so a Writefag might be able to give them better personalities. Cat size thing was meant to be erased but I was pretty knackered at the time of posting so looks like I forgot about that. Ill just be lurking around if anyone has any design changes/ideas. The drawing is just meant to be fun, plenty of time for change through feedback.
>>35769719The only way I want Teegee to be this big, and also for this thing to have anything to do with those board-tans, is if Teegee brutally rapes /tg/-tan.Brutally.
>>35769955You did good work, but I have no real intention of continuing this thing. It was a poor trolling attempt at the start, but naturally /tg/ turned into actual results.
>>35769977>poor trollingOnly the board-tan people have any reason to be buttmad.
>>35770150Do you actually think the 'Rapist Gerbil' idea was unrelated to the concurrent Winter Ball thread? Just read the OP, it's dripping with thinly veiled sarcasm.
>>35770179Still, the only people who have any qualms with this are people invested in the winter ball threads.Everyone else just sees it as good fun with a bit of satire.
>>35770266Eh, I don't like the board-tan crap or this, although I enjoyed the actual quality stuff that came out of it, and did contribute some shitty MSPaint drawings myself.
>>35735158In what way do they rape
>>35737548That is the cutest and funniest thing i have seen this week
>>35770266>>35770286Winter Ball person here. I don't mind the thread at all, aside from being in the presence of the sort of pissant bitch who makes threads to protest the fun other people are having. They could have made it amusing satire, but they went full retard from post 1; not really any different from the common shitpost.At least it went somewhere good.
>>35770348Shouldn't you go back to your cabal now, since you aren't worried about how this thing might endanger your little project?It's already better than what you guys come up with (because this stuff is actually made by /tg/, rather than your little group), but you don't have to worry because it's not straight animosity, just satirical usurption.
>>35770481Damn, that's some actual buttmad there.
>>35770481So buttblasted _and_ delusional. I'm sorry you can't deal with the fact that there are people on your board who like things you don't.I wonder if you'd stroke out if I made a RWBY thread.
>>35770481You keep on insisting that /tg/-tan wasn't designed by /tg/.Just because you weren't there when it happened doesn't make it from a different board.
>>35738060our gerbil should have a hyena penis clitoris
>>35770590Tuypo pls go.
So, if Teegee and company need their own universe to occupy, whsg should it be like?We could still have the microcosm world akin to The Borrowers, but have a mansion that's NOT associated with Board-Tans.They could be free-roaming beings in the wild that stay away from a world dominated by larger species, such as The Secret of Nymh.We could do a Redwall style where their kind is the norm and they effectively replace people.Other ideas?
>>35770527>>35770547>>35770584Can you guys stop monitoring this thread and go back to your winter ball nonsense?Your egos are so fragile its pathetic.
>>35770663>being this anally annihilated
>>35770663>OMG GET OUT MY THREAD
>>35770662I like the Nihm option. Redwall is awesome, but honestly I think more often than not it wastes the size factor of the animals.">>35770663Oh shut up. I've been a part of this thread since we were actually talking about making a rape gerbil rather than an adventure hamster.You're just buttmad because in the Winterball thread no one liked your idea that /tg/ should be a 400 pound lardass loner.
>>35770723>>35770662It's the Secret of NIMH
>>35770584>designed by /tg/I don't think you understand what that means.Actually, I think you do, but you just want to keep lying in order to create a false sense of legitimacy to your character, when you really need to keep in mind your own "none of this is canon" disclaimer.I don't even understand how you think anyone is stupid enough to listen to your bogus claims that any of your board-tan stuff is native to any of the boards are widely recognized or accepted.Just because you guys post this shit here doesn't mean it belongs here, nor is it particularly welcome.
>>35770745Weird, I thought it was a y. Thank you.
>>35770786The Secret is that NIMH is the National Institute of Mental HealthMakes it pretty easy to remember.
>>35770723I think it really depends on where we want to go with these stories. Like you said, Redwall doesn't really utilize the sizes, but the other two are driven by the human influence on their world. I love it to death, but is that where we want to go with her?
>>35770770>my opinions determine those of the board>I dislike your not-canon, but refuse to produce any myself>instead, I will whinge and bitch endlessly about other peoples' fun>4chan must be a democratic society with tallied votes for anything to gain legitimacy>things are capable of having legitimacy on 4chan; the criteria for which I am the sole keeper of>if I don't like it, it's unwelcome on the board as a wholeI almost want to start armchair psychoanalyzing you. I'm getting both a 'spoiled only child' and 'spoiled youngest of many siblings' vibe.
>>35770812It's been YEARS since I'd seen it. I'd forgotten that it was an acronym.Capcha: animsocide instructor. Spooky.
>>35770823I prefer the NIMH approach mostly because I think it makes for the most interesting world to explore. These tiny creatures banding together to deal with a world that is bigger and more dangerous than any of them could face on their own.If we're not setting them in the 4chanhouse, then it gets even more intimidating because then it needs to be in the DnD Prime Material Plane with the Gel Cube and other monsters being present. And that place is scary as shit.
>>35770897In that case, how should they view the typical races? Does the scale make them out to be gods to them, due to their masterh of magic and technology, or are they more meta-aware of their place in the PmP?
>>35770897Why not use Planescape, but go full Kingdom Hearts with it?From Sigil, you can also reach Cadia, CATastrophe, 2100s Seattle, Golden Sky Stories, hell, even Mouse Guard itself.And if anybody wants to link it to the boardtans' mansion, that's why things bigger than should be possible sometimes enter and exit the doghouse in the back.
>>35770960Oh, I like this one, but it pushes her away from OC and towards insert fan fiction.Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I'd prefer to write her in her own setting at first.
>>35770960Eh that just makes it feel generic. They should be from somewhere, and based on group composition, Prime Material and 4chanmansion are the only places that really make sense.
What's the best wsy to post a story here? Should I copy/paste from a text file or post the text as s picture, or what? I've never put stuff up on 4chan before.
>>35771179Make a pastebin and then post a link to it.
>>35771112I don't really like the idea of it being in 4chanmansion, simply because it taking place inside a building limits the adventures. but maybe out in wastes there is a fortress of chaos or some shit that.
>>35771306Being based in a building doesn't mean you never leave it. I'd see it as treating the mansion as 'home base' for organizing adventures.
>>35770960Let's just stay away from the boardtan mansion.
>>35771330There's also a city around it. There's actually a lot of stuff that they could do from the 4chan Mansion.
While we're at it,colour scheme suggestions?
>>35771187Sounds like a plan.So let's fill in the group.Whenever I make new characters, I give them a rough framework consisting of the following:>3 quirks (mental or physical)These are things that set them apart from others of their kind at a glance. In her case, yge scar is likely one of these, but she may also have odd habits or other distinguishing traits.>2 motivationsWhat is it that this character hopes to achieve through her actions? Most, if not all of her actions should be oriented towards filling these goals in some way, be they vengeance, a desire for wealth and fame, or even petty things like "I want to see mountains".>1 significant back story event.This is why the character is a PC instead if an NPC. this life-changing event is often unpleasent for the character (father murdered, village burned down, got kidnapped, etc) and often spawns one or more of their motivations. (Avenge father's murder, acquire wealth to rebuild villiage, escape to get back home, etc)So let's assign Teegee's character framework>Quirks-Scar on right eye-->Motivations--Back story event-We'll do the rest of the party next
>>35771466I've been picturing ruddy brown with a cream belly and face.
>>35771466I liked black and white dice type colors,
>>35771466color schemes are my weakest point but maybe a brownish red fur, a off white yellowish belly and white neckfluff?
>>35771466black body, light gray belly and white ruff
>>35771560I actually like this quite a bit.
>>35771466pink hands, feet, mouth, inner ear, tail, scar.black tuftwhite hair, bodylight gray face, belly
>>35771509One of the movitations should just be ADVENTURE! Or something to the effect of "live a good story." And she never quite gets the perfect story (in her opinion), so she keeps trying.One of the quirks could be extravagent heroic posing, or older english (thou thine thee etc) use when things are getting serious and she's deep into story mode.Back story event doesn't have to be traumatic. It could be something light hearted. Through bearing witness to so many of the games between /tg/, /m/, /co/, et. al. she had an inspiration moment and decides she is going to chase down the magic of tales first hand.
>>35771382I think a small cottage on the outer limits of a small town or village would a good home base. with a nearby field and forest for adventuring. A village would be large enough for the tiny group to explore without it becoming a huge mess that a city would bring. Though there could be a nearby City that could lead to the shock and awe of a settlement of that scale for them.The owner of the cottage and there caretaker could be an elderly gentleman also possibly a child if wanted.
>>35771589Aaand there we go
>>35771663I think she should also be pretty curious. It helps fuel her adventures and could lead to some fun predicaments."I wonder what's so horrible about 'The Horrible Swamp of No Return' and why no one returns from it? Lets go find out"
>>35771707I like this one.
>>35771725Sounds good. "too curious" is a great trait for a truly adventurous adventurer.
Y'know what,here's the lineart in a transparent background.Go nuts.
>>35771758This one is perfect. I'm still not sure about the shovel though, should really be something more /tg/-ish, like a small sword.
>>35771758I think this gray fits with the pinks better. Full disclosure: I am samefagging.
>>35771663Quirks-Scar on right eye-Slips into olde english when under stress->Motivations-live the perfect adventure story->Back story event-After reading about the epic tales that other daring heroes have had in /tg/, she finally decided to reach for the stars herself, and achieve a greatness that would be put to story like the heroes she's read about.How about she's overly genre-savvy as well, and it sometimes gets her into trouble when she over-predicts things because the real world isn't made of tropes?
>>35771815But she lives in fiction. So that doesn't work.
>>35771725>>35771779>Quirks-Scar on right eye-Slips into olde english when under stress-Overly curious-->Motivations-live the perfect adventure story->Back story event-After reading about the epic tales that other daring heroes have had in /tg/, she finally decided to reach for the stars herself, and achieve a greatness that would be put to story like the heroes she's read about.There's no really limit to the quirks that can be assigned, but I wouldn't try to gave more than 2-3 motivations, since they start to clash.
my vision, from the glory of MSPaint
>>35771856Too much gray, in my opinion. Her theme is dice.
>>35771832That brings up an excellent point.Are the stories that inspired her a fiction within her metafiction, or are they "real" stories that are a historic documentation of things that share a universe with her?
>>35771880Maybe a mixture of both, Historic events that occurred in her world and fictional stories (both from her world and possibly some /tg/ stories) that she thinks are true.
>>35771870right, forgotHere's another idea, though you'd need to smooth out the edges, because my mouse is shit for that
>>35771689I was initially on the brown and cream boat, but this one is my favorite thus far.
>>35771935I was for red-brown and I have to agree
>>35771930Eh, the checkering looks weird. >>35771689 is almost the same, but looks neater in my opinion.
>>35771787Nah, I like the shovel. An actual sword feels wrong somehow. Having her primary weapon be improvised out of a shovel seems like the kind of thing that would happen in a backstory adventure and would become her signature weapon thereafter.
>>35772046besides, a shovel can be a spear, a club or a knife, depending on how you hold it
>>35771915Okay, I'll have a few "Adventures of Jain Farstrider" books to compliment the "Treasure Island" books.
>>35772056Well, if it was a Spade it could be a spear, but this is a square shovel. Even so.
>>35772079really? I guess I assumed it was a rounded tip
>>35772079What if the edges are sharpened like an ax?
I fucking love you guys
>>35772123Considering the Kid Friendly feel of this entire set up, I think more often than not she'd use it like a club. But the edges could certainly be sharpened for cutting things like rope and cloth.
>>35772056Yea, the shovel is a must-have adventuring tool, like a crowbar or a bag of wooden wedges. I adore it as her weapon because it perfectly captures the spirit of adventuring without being overtly threatening, like a "legitimate" weapon.+1 vote for pointed tip, though.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b60OZhrTB6oSpeaking of shovels
>>35771668The old man could be a lonely old retired adventurer or bard who tells these fantastic tales he's heard or taken part in to the little group since they're his only company.
>>35772196hell, you can even put some food in it and hold it over a fire as a kind of frying pan
>>35772197Jesus I really want one of these things now.
>>35771659I really like this one
>>35772197>shieldOh god that was hilarious
>>35772196Pointed shovel is superior shovel but I'm kind of getting attacked to this flat one.
>>35772412then get a pointy one and stab the bastard
>>35772412You mean attached?Though >>35772485 made the typo funnier
>>35771758I think this is the best one, if you change the shovel.>>35771689This one seems too dark.
Almost forgot,we need an eye colour as well
>>35772572black. It's not important, and maybe they'd look like a 1 face among the whites of the eyes if you squint. who cares.
>>35772572I don't know, I've personally never seen a rodent that didn't have blue eyes
>>35772616I've never seen any animal that didn't have a dark, dark brown.
>>35772636Some dogs can have blue eyes. Hamsters though, your right.
>>35772649I don't know about hamsters but every rat I've owned when looking at extreme angles had a ring of blue around it
>>35771915>>35771930add some purple bad purple is the boss didity yo
>>35772688I just googled rats. Fancy rats in particular. All black eyes.
>>35772735At extreme angles. If you get a rat to focus on something and turn is eyes far enough it has a thin blue strip of color around the black.>>35772572but I honestly think green eyes would be good
>>35772810>>35772730here ya go>>35772730
>>35772412I agree. Pointed is superior, but it''s ultimately cosmetic, and the flat one is adorable, so I'm changing my vote to "Flat".
>>35772829I love people eyes but I think she needs something brighter
>>35772916If we're doing anything other than default black animal eyes, then I think it should be Green with this >>35771689 design.
>>35771815>>35771832It gets weird.
>>35773056It's bright outside and i'm on my phone, I literally cannot read this.Tl;Dr, please? I'll give it s proper reading when I get off of work.
>>35773208"It gets weird" is basically the tl;dr.
>>35736009God fucking damn it, that is literally the entirety of 4chan boiled down to one post. My fucking sides
>>35773208wizards being wizards
Any more story content requests or content additions to Teegee's character?Any suggestions for the quirks/motivations/back story for her three companions?So far:Alistair the pseudodragon>Quirks-Catlike attitide-->Motivations-->Back story event-Gobs the tiny gelatinous cube>Quirks-Shy-->Motivations-->Back story event-Urf the Earth Elemental>Quirks--->Motivations-->Back story event-Teegee the gerbil>Quirks-Scar on right eye-Slips into olde english when under stress-Overly curious-->Motivations-live the perfect adventure story->Back story event-After reading about the epic tales that other daring heroes have had in /tg/, she finally decided to reach for the stars herself, and achieve a greatness that would be put to story like the heroes she's read about.
>>35775263Nothing personal, but I'm not really a huge fan of the companions.I like pseudodragons, but I don't really think something so innately complex really fits alongside a hamster.The other two or just straight up "meh."
>>35775389It's a "hamster". It's a moeblob Dire Rat.
>>35775263>-Slips into olde english when under stressThat's dumb. Like 50 shades dumb.
>>35775492agreedthough gaining an accent under stress could be interesting
>>35775389I was thinking that the pseudodragon would be the first one she meets on her adventure. The idea being that he's a wizard's familiar whos wizard has died. This gives her s direct line into her first dungeon, since the pseudodragon cannot go in alone to where his master died.
>>35775522Just generally having a british accent is interesting.Nothing says "adventurer" so much as trampling over indigenous people, desecrating ancient temples, sowing chaos and violence with every step, and doing all that before having a nice cup of tea and reading a freshly pressed newspaper.
>>35775492Perhaps not "olde English" specificly, but the suggestion was for some kind of dramatic prose when they're in combat or some other dramatic thing is happening.
>>35775718I don't think it's so much "Under stress" as "When she sees an opportunity to be dramatic"She wants to craft a story with her adventure.
>>35772950this shade of green good?
>>35775573The problem with a pseudodragon is that it kind of outshines a hamster by a considerable degree.Sort of like Drizzt and Wulfgar. Wulfgar was supposed to be the main character of the Icewind Dale series, being the Human Barbarian champion, but Drizzt ended up stealing the spotlight by being an exiled drow.I think that if Teegee knows a pseudodragon, that's alright, but as far as companions go, more common animals would be better.A cat familiar, for instance, practically writes itself if the proud animal has to ask a hamster for assistance.
>>35775774we could just change 'pseudodragon' to 'lizard' and it would be the same thing, essentially, just different words
>>35775743Perfect.>>35775804>Lizard that is convinced that he is in fact a Pseudodragon.
>>35775718That's one of those things that makes someone less cool, not more.Are you one of those guys who does that, and thinks they're cool by doing it? Be honest.Because that's almost on the level of wearing a fedora and genuinely thinking you look cool when it's not 1920.
>>35775862yfw fedoras will pass from common fashion but still be in the public consciousness enough to be worn unironically in time for 2020.
>>35775862It's not that it makes her cool. It's that she THINKS it makes her cool.She just wants to be the hero of a grand adventure and isn't necessarily sure how to do that. So she emulates metafictional characters to be a hero.
>>35775919as an idea this is kinda cool, but I'm not sure it wouldn't go over most people's heads and just end up looking dumb...Unless maybe she gets called out on it and has to explain
>>35775822maybe the lizard is a bearded dragon and he thinks that means he's a real dragon.>>35775862it could be the one thing she does that all the others cringe silently at but wont say anything to her because they don't want to crush her spirit by saying it makes her look retarded.
>>35775944It's times like this I wish I could draw.
>>35775822>Lizard thinks it's a pseudo dragonThat's hilarious and adorable. Can I get a seconded on that?>>35775862It wasn't my suggestion. I'm just the guy who's trying to take everyone's ideas and hone them into a story. Whether it's "cool" or not is irrelevant, this is the character that is being created by the will of the thread, and if they want an accent I will write it as such. If they do not, then I will not. It's as simple as that.That being said, we should reach a consensus on having or not having drama-induced speech habits.
>>35775919It's quickly turning down into lamer and lamer territory.Rather than being a bright-eyed and naturally adventurous individual, you're turning her into some sort of knock-off imitator that's more irritating than endearing.I mean, have you ever seen kids play before? They do the "Thou art bla bla bla" for about ten seconds before they lapse back into regular speech, and the notion that someone would, in times of duress, subconsciously start talking like some ponce from the worst kind of novel is as nonsensical as it is annoying.Teegee is already cool. She's got a wicked scar. A shovel. Some lucky dice and mischievous grin.THAT'S what should be inspiring her character, not your backwards notion that people who try to be cool are cool.
>>35775969>That being said, we should reach a consensusThis isn't some silly board-tan business. Go away and let this thing happen naturally instead of trying to force it just so you can make it in time for your ball.
>>35776053Hey guy. It's a fucking hamster.
>>35776081I'm just trying to figure out what the thread thinks this character should be like so I can write about her. I couldn't give fewer fucks about the board-tan ball thing.
>>35776053It's not a subconscious thing though. It's a completely purposeful thing. You're right, the subconscious idea was kind of dumb, but it's an intentional act on her part to make a moment feel more "EPIC" in her mind. When shit goes down, she's not gonna be Theeing and Thouing. But right as she steps through the door that Urf just battered down brandishing her mighty shovel? You can be that in that moment she's gonna throw around some faux flowery prose.
>>35776116You should make that decision yourself.Figure out what you personally think is cool, and don't worry about what's canon or what's not.If you write it, and something your wrote about seems cool, it'll carry on.So make your own decision. Weigh what people are saying, but you should either have enough sense and taste to make your own decision, or you shouldn't be writing in the first place.
>>35776081>let this thing happen naturally instead of trying to force it>while trying to force away the association with board-tan stuff that happened naturallyYou forcing harder than anyone.
>>35776116If you write a personality well, that should be her personality. But I'd just go with a cheerful hamtaro style thing. No point getting too out there since it's gonna be a relatively small setting probably, and not a lot of characters for her to need to contrast to.
>>35776053>have you ever seen kids play before? They do the "Thou art bla bla bla" for about ten seconds before they lapse back into regular speechI think that is what she does. She does it to feel like an epic adventurer and only does it when she pictures herself filling that role
>>35776185>>35776235This. When it comes to this kind of thing, the final arbitrators aren't the the posters in the thread, they're the artists and writers who make OC.
>>35776165>>35776249This whole "she wants to be an epic adventurer!" is giving me all sorts of bad vibes.I feel it should be a more Hamtoro type thing, just critters having fun and going on adventurers because they like exploring and trying new things, not some weird meta-force that demands that she must adventure.
>>35776402She just likes old stories of quests and adventures and glory. All she wants is to have awesome stories where she is the hero
>>35776432>>35776402It's almost like Finn in Adventure Time before the show started going downhill. She does actually go on adventures, she just also Idolizes the idea of being a hero. It's just a piece of characterization, not a driving force of any plot.
>>35735158Gerbil Rapists 2: Hamtoro Adventures
>>35776432I'd prefer if she used the parts of those awesome stories that are ACTUALLY awesome, rather than the superficial aspects.Rather than talking dumb sometimes, she could solve problems while referencing past heros she's emulating, like hanging onto the underside of some larger animal to escape detection (like Odysseus did in the Cyclop's cave) or using the flat of her shovel like a mirror to observe around a corner (like Perseus used his shield to observe Medusa)I also find her attempting outlandish plans based on past heroes and having them fail spectacularly is definitely a much more interesting trait than talking dumb on occasion.
>>35776611why not both?
So the thread is at the bump limit. Do we want to keep going with a new thread when it dies or will this just die with it?
>>35776657Because imitating the speech is the superficial aspect. The fedora of the gangster, if you will.And, having a tacky habit like talking in a grandiose manner doesn't really fit the kind of rough-and-tumble kind of character that a hamster with a scar and a shovel is.If anything, she would hit people who tried to talk to her in such a way with a shovel, and then reprimand them for making light of her heroes.
>>35776705This thread isn't even close to dead yet. Calm your tits.
>>35776771>Page 8 and not bumping. Ok. I mean I know we've got time left, I was just wondering.
>>35776749I figured with the Hamtoro design that it had an air of childishness to it. This isn't quite mouseguard
>>35776808That's why hitting someone with the shovel only makes a cute squeek noise but doesn't do any damage.
>>35776928It could KO them, but hitting something with a blunt object and causing unconsciousness is more innocent then hacking at their abdomin and spilling their guts out.
TeeGee must do battle with the dreaded bullfrog..
>>35770662Familiars.>Wizard school dorm room>all the cool kids have the most exotic familiars they could get>then there's this dork with a gerbil>the gerbil is cooler than him
>>35777247this has serious potential
>>35777247Not bad, but the large problem is what usually happens with familiars. They get overshadowed by their masters to the point where they get forgotten.Even if the gerbil initially has more presence than her master, it would be hard to keep that as the status quo, but more importantly all the other masters would be far more important than their familiars, to such a degree that the identity of the familiars master would be more important than the species of said familiar.It has some potential, but it's a little bit out there.
>>35775919 I'd say that even in that case, a slipping accent doesn't really work. Either she always speaks like that, which could be fun but it's a bit overdone (think Marvel Thor), or she doesn't. Having her suddenly change speech patterns from time to time would be confusing for little gain, and/or need a lot of lampshade hanging.
someone has to archive this
>>35777477The way to make the Masters not Outshine the Familiars is to not include them in the story. It's a Wizard School. Most of the time, they're just out at class. The Familiars all meet up when the Masters aren't there and go on adventures that way. The Masters never learn of the adventures and thus never get a chance to make them obsolete.It also gives a great backdrop for tiny sized adventures to happen in. Wizard Schools are dangerous as fuck but simultaneously super friendly settings.
>>35777477As I see it, the masters need not even be a part of this, except for a bit of introduction (what I wrote in the other post). I haven't watched a lot of Hamtaro, but I seem to recall it worked like this... Humans were there, you saw them from time to time, but the show was all about hamsters fooling around. This would be the same in a more fantasy setting.
>>35777629>>35777636It works with ordinary humans, but wizards are wizards. Downplaying them and ignoring them raises the question of why making the critters familiars to begin with?Also, in Hamtaro, Hamtaro's owner plays a fairly large part in the stories, as do some of the other owners. Being owned by someone makes them a fairly big part of your life, and the major reason why they actually get to have awesome adventures is because of the feral hamster Boss who maintains the clubhouse they all escape to.Like I said before, it's not a terrible idea, and I'm just raising my concerns with it.Personally, I don't like the idea of making them pets/familiars unless it's a necessity, and I don't really think it's a necessity like in the case of Hamtaro (you can't have a story about thirteen feral hamster in modern day Japan without people asking why they're not somebody's pets).
