Any of you anons ever played a clown in a game? My DM is letting me play some clown homebrew class and I want some ideas for the character. Anyone care to help me out?
>>51067236>Any of you anons ever played a clown in a game?Once, in F-Zero
>>51067255Don't have the art for it cause it's a new computer, but the Phantom says hi.
>>51067236>Clown Homebrew Class.>Not Clown Homebrew Race?What is life then?

>>51067236/tg/ has a resident clown, he knows his shit about clown history and is a pretty cool guy (for a tripfag).Maybe if you keep posting clown tits, Gropey will show up.
>Clown Archetypes>TriscksterMaster of traps. Laughts at the expense of others. Has a flower that squirts water and can summon pies.>JugglerExtremely nimble, is an expert of juggling and equilibrium. Can also ride the unicycle.>Balloon MasterCan create balloon weapons and monsters, which have 1HP. Can also use balloons to float and make funny noises.
>>51067333Hopefully this makes him show up.
>>51067506What if I want my main thing to be a nose that honks?
>>51067236 Run it as a bard rogue hybrid. High charisma high dexterity. You're travelling entertainer. The inn is always open to you and you keep public spirits high. You have slight of hand and know how to tumble. But you don't care much for disabling traps or keeping a low profile.Your combat style is about all about status effects, bluffs and evasion. You know how to misdirection foes to trip em, belittle them to enraged them, stick a cream pie in the face blind 'em. You have a knife. You know how to use it. But you'd rather pin your enem sleeve to the wall then drive it into his back. You have a nice big pair of white gloves after all, why get them dirty?Most of all you know how to take a fall. How to roll the punch make it look convincing.
>>51067573Sounds pretty good.
>>51067236Yes. I was forbidden from playing a normal bard after annihilating the previous campaign by seducing key NPCs.
> have you ever played a clown?The hero the station deserves, but not the one it needs right now.
>>51067754Did you save them all, anon?
>>51067333>picYou know what, I'm not sure I wouldn't.
>>51067795I made them flip out with my magical bike horn.Honk Honk
>>51067236Had one set up for a sabbat malk.He was not a typical clown, not with 5 ranks in dementation from the start.
>>51067236I am uncomfortable with this erection
>>51068073I'm just going to leave this here then: >>>/d/7170546
>>51067236Think Joker. Not in the whole "lol I'm chaotic evil and randumb" way, but when it comes to a sense of humor. Puns and contextual jokes are his forte, and he always has something to use as a prop for a laugh (presdigitation or minor illusion can fill in the gap if you don't have anything). Be self-deprecating and a weird mix of flatterer and insulter.Also, the laugh is important. As a clown you'd laugh a lot, so try to not overdo it when roleplaying. When you do use it, make it count, and make sure the tone of the laugh fits.
I played a member of he Scatterbrains gang in Shadowrun. It was a Dwarven Rigger that was a tad unhinged but was the parties ace in the hole when only a heavily armed surprise attack from an armored vehicle could save their asses.Its too bad Shadowrun seems cursed and sessions never seem to last particularly long
>>51068100lotta the stuff in there is... not palatable. I find sexy clowns hot. Clown transformations via lactating magic clown juice all over a big titted blonde not so much.If such a thing exists, I guess its the sexy clown and less the excess sexiness injected into the scenario.
Jester count? If so, the bbeg of one game was a jester assassin.
>>51068198You know what you were getting in to as soon as you clicked on to /d/
>>51068198>>51068312That's /d/ for you. If a little is sexy, a lot must be orgasmic. They don't really know the meaning of subtlety, or moderation.That's also why there's nothing really all that attractive about worshipping Slaanesh. They start small, but then they can't get the same rise out of the old stuff so they blow it out of proportion to the point that it's not even about sex anymore, and it more resembles drug addictions. You start with a slutty felinid waifu, then in the end you're getting fucked by chaos tainted Space Wolves that failed their rite of passage.
>>51067236What game are you playing? Pathfinder? Dnd?
I play a rogue/barbarian who wants to be a clown. He has bipolar disorder and murdered his dad before running away to a circus troupe. He also has honking clown shoes that give a bonus to sneaking, a flaming rapier he uses for a combo sword swallowing/fire eating act, and juggles his knives in combat to confuse people before he tosses them.
>>51067236Of course. WHFRP, CoC, Unknown Armies and WoD.I haven't played one in Cyberpunk, but there are a canon NPC gang (though my GM played them more like the Jokerz from Batman beyond) that we've worked with and fought.>I want some ideas for the character.Well, what do you wanna know?>>51067304We are a proud, industrious people, and don't need your racism. >>51067333Not for that pic, no.>>51067542This works for me. >>51068073Why not? You should visit my clown porn threads on /s/ sometime.
>>51067236I did a one shot of the juggalo RPG if that counts. We went to the zoo and fought a demon and ran over the monkeys with a steamroller. But that game is basically just d20 modern with hardly any changes whatsoever.
>>51067236Sorry I can't help OP.Have some recent phone art instead.
Well, IRL, there's like three archerypes for clowns;>The White Clown AKA PierrotThey are the smarter ones, to a point-dexter level. Often musical eccentric (musical eccentric is the correct old times term for any kind of comic whos rutines are based on them playing instruments and songs in funny ways). The white clown is sometimes hauty and sometimes shy, easy to embaress and quite prudent. They also talk, and are quite eloquate and articulated. (Look up arthuro bragetti for a modern white clown).>the Redheaded clownThe colorful childish, almost stereotypical clown. Childish and happy but quick to cry. Doesn't speak much and mostly laughs. Not smart at all. (Look up Charlie Rivell for the most famous redheaded clown).>the Hobo clown aka the trampThe hobo. Drunk and in tattered cloths. A bit clever, but still not so smart. Grunts instead of talking. See Charlie Chaplin or George CarlThe thing with funny clowns is to make them do stupid things that are obviusly stupid, but, they do not realise it's supid, but genuinely believe it's like the smartest idéa ever, without overacting.And here's a tip from the great Buster Keaton; A comedian does funny things. A great comedian does things funny.
>>51068948Also, a clowns red nose symbolizes that he's drunk, so act a bit drunk.As weed is taking over as the new "idiot-drug", see Pineapple Express for some more Modern clown behaviors.
>>51068943How sweet! Are you one of my seagull friends?>>51068948Ehhhhh..... You could have at least looked up the Wikipedia article on clown archtypes, or even better, look through the archives for my breakdown of about a quarter of the traditional faces, as useable for the Clownpunk threads.
>>51067236I once played a Jester, in a 3.5 game, using a "Dungeonomicon" homebrew from the dandwiki. Man, that was a loooong time ago.Bizarre spell list, spontenous casting, no proficiencies, no penalties for improvised weapons, and a boatload of super bizarre abilities that made me a little too hard to kill. Good thing I was half-useless in combat, or I would have been exceedingly broken. The class really shined at crowd control though; it finds ways to penalize your enemies in a way that makes it seem like a reverse bard.Mechanics aside, just try to find the funny side in things. Tell some jokes every now and then, even if they fall flat. Pratfall. Be a little random. Or develop your own particular brand of humor and always try to get better at it. Spread smiles to your friends. Make a joke of your enemies. Whatever. As long as you're not obnoxious, your assistance will make you an odd, but welcome member of the party.
>>51068970Uhhh... No. Where are you getting this info? Drunken clowns are typical pinnano, with red or pink ears, except for the case of the American classic tramp, who does partial Auguste.
A few times, here's one:Well, I guess I'll start off with a few basics about the character. He was a Rogue (Carnivalist/Bandit). Tiefling Race. The GM let me take the Infernal Bastard trait to despite not being in that campaign as he felt voluntary depowering was more than enough justification. I used this to take Prestidigitation as an At Will spell like ability. Perhaps, before I go any further, I should note, the character was not optimized and he was not meant to be. Even at his own profession as a fool, he was lacking. He was all about the character. Yes I could contribute to the party through skill checks, and in combat via feinting, sneak attacks, distraction etc., however my role was ultimately for RP. Now as a character he was rather cruel and insensitive. This was of course, perhaps due to a hard life, but I prefered to liken it more towards his general disposition. He was a worshipper of Groetus, and as our paladin once described him, an "occupational asshole". Early on they met him at a party celebrating the construction of a new chapel. Not to his religious beliefs of course, but he had been curious and decided to drop by. After a brief skirmish from would be goblin party crashers, he was given the chance to introduce himself. Which he did of course by telling his life story:
>>51069016I was born and raised in a travelling circus, my parents where clowns. I was taught a lot and shaped by it. I was taught the old school of clownery. I didn't see the average joe 9-to-5 world until I was a young man.
>>51069062You see, his father and mother before him, both of gypsy lifestyle, desired to settle down for the baby. One could only assume this sedentary lifestyle if they had a job. Being of a nomadic lifestyle and having little skills that would allow them to generate a steady income, they eagerly searched for a job in the entertainment industry. It was there that they found an opening. A fool, for a local lord. A man hard as rock, and about the patience of an angry badger. Nevertheless, her pregnancy neared its late stages, and they decided it was worth the shot. As they entered onto the makeshift stage used for auditions, the noblemen eyed them suspiciously. "Sir," they said, "our lordship, cannot accept family acts. For Iomedae's sake, your wife should be at home resting, she looks as if she could birth a child at any minute.". His father pleaded to continue, eventually leading to one of the nobles caving in, "Very well sir, we shall give you this one chance." And as those words left his lips the spectacle began. His mother begins to sing a hymn well known as of Desna's praise, while his father began to heat up an iron. As her song progressed, she slowly peeled away her outer layers of clothing, and then, much to the nobles surprise, her undergarments. Her pregnant and naked body clearly visible, she began kneel down and assume a position on all fours. It was then that his father removed a brand from the fire he had started off to the side and sat upon her back, treating her as furniture for a few brief seconds before thrusting the white hot piece of iron into her thigh. The reek of burning flesh soon reached the noses of the audience as tears streamed down his mothers eyes. His father kicks her in the hip, knocking her down, and begins to douse her other leg and opposing wrist with alcohol before lighting it and undressing himself as she attempts to put out her now burning appendages. Once naked he starts to slap his wifes pregnant belly yelling,
>>51069073"Get rid of it, we don't need another mouth to feed." But this, is not quite enough abuse as his wife begins to masturbate, despite the abuse and as an orgasm wracks her body gives birth to a baby boy. One not quite of human nature. Furious his father tosses the baby aside landing on his head and begins to strangle his wife. The nobles stream into action at this savagery calling in the guards as the man begins stabbing his wife with a plank of wood torn from the stage. They stab the man with their spears, and drag the wife off stage in an attempt to get her to medical attention immediately, however they are too late. She dies on the trip. As the man lays bleeding, the nobles sit in silence before one bravely asks, "What kind of hellish act is that?" to which, his dying father looks up, and says proudly with tears running down his eyes, "The Aristocrats".
>>51069080I've probably missed a couple of details, but you get the point. I introduced him with an aristocrat joke. No one ever quite got his true story of origin. Not that it really mattered. Naturally, the table was horrified and it was only the predecessor to his antics. He was a cynical bastard at his best, and downright unfunny at his worst. Given the chance, there would be jokes or rhymes, often belittling the target. When our bard lost his hand? Puns arrived at his expense. He was a master of the anti-joke, or so he liked to think, bearing wonderful gifts such as "How do you make a tanner cry? You kill his family." or some variation of "What's worse than biting into an apple and finding a worm? Getting raped by a giant scorpion.". There were racist jokes, there were sexist jokes, there was even, on one occasion following the miscarriage of an npc that had endeared itself to the party, a dead baby joke. He criticized nobility, in particular their treatment of the poor. He criticized the poor for their belief in the afterlife. He held no respect for the dead. And no respect for his fellow man or beast. This was best characterized with his familiar, a babboon, which would become irate and throw a shit fit at the end of each terrible joke. He treated this as his own personal laugh track, supposedly reinforcing his ego - however it is apparent that he knew the reality of this fit, despite the fact that the monkey's acting out was indeed it voicing its disapproval. In fact, the jokes quite angered it. A fact that probably delighted him. There were assassination attempts, to rid the world of such an abrasive character. They failed, sometimes due to his perception, sometimes due to party intervention. He caught diseases, but never enough to push him past the threshold of death. He was poisoned, he was injured, and altogether endured a large deal of abuse.
>>51069087When he finally kicked the bucket at the hands of a skilled fighter, the party refused to resurrect him. Well, one of them did bury, but there was no attendance at his funeral. No one missed him. No one was endeared to him. He was forever seen as a spiteful little man with a penchant for the discomfort of those around him, no remorse or guilt and a nihilistic view of life and death.
>>51069070Fantastic. I am heritage family, and a B&B graduate who has toured with three circuses , and has published work on the subjects of clown theory and clown history. You're still wrong by a huge margin. Which circuses? My family is one of the original families of the Cole Bros, among others.I'll show you my egg, if you show me yours.
>>51068976>Are you one of my seagull friends?I'm gonna have to say no, as I don't know what that means.I am now imagining you surrounded by cartoon seagulls like a twisted version of a Disney princess.It seems oddly appropriate.I just have enjoyed your continued presence on the board and when an anon asked I try a more modest, decidedly more clownish phone art, I thought of you.
>>51069243Seagull is the kinda phonetic pronunciation of /cgl/. We are fa/tg/uys. on /cgl/, they are seagulls.I am most appreciative of any art with me in mind. Pic related, lots of fan art.
>>51069214>I'll show you my egg, if you show me yours.Woo! Man, this is why I advocate clowns as a race rather than a class. Clowns have deepest lore.
>>51069274Ah.That would be one of those "other boards" I hear tell of in myth and legend.Groovy. I never stray far enough from /tg/ to really pick up other board culture. I like to consolidate and concentrate my wasting of time.Neat comic btw.>>51069278>Clown race involving seagull eggs.>2deep4me lore
>>51069214My parents where from the soviet state circus, taught in soviets main clown academy. The red nose is, and has always been, a sign of being drunk.
>>51069300We register and copyright our face with our own international governing body, and we use hollowed out eggshells as miniatures.>>51069365Well then, you might be privy to know that when a clown has come of age, they must their noses is hunting down a male proboscis monkey, and fighting it to the death with nothing but a polkadoted loincloth and rolled up newspaper (week print, with the ads taken out, not the sunday edition. You can read the funnies before the hunt if you like).The prospect, if successful with then tear off the mighty schnoz of the proboscis monkey, and craft his nose under a moonless sky, the blood of his slain foe dyeing the prize as red as the sunrise that will don upon the newly initiated clown.And thus the cycle of life continues.>>51069278Maybe in bizzaro-commie land, but in the entirety of western clowning tradition since the Romans, drunks are the ears and face.
>>51069300>>51069365Gropey can explain the egg registry and clown lore better than I can.Well, to enrage about half the people in here, I theory crafted a 5e clown race. Kept it generic and relatable, so most of the cultural stuff was lore rather than racial features, but it had three basic subraces:Base stats: +1 DexProficiency in performanceCircus: +1 Dex, +1 charisma, proficiency in improvised weapons and animal handling, whips, and whenever you're knocked prone, being able to get a comedic laugh that provides 1d4 temporary hitpoints to allies, can use this feature a number of times equal to your charisma modifier per long rest.Court Jester: +2 Charisma, proficiency in deception and persuasion, and a natural proficiency in gambling cards, and the ability to treat playing cards as an improvised weapon with the same stats as a dagger, but with slashing damage.Mime: specialized in illusion and invisibility magic. +2 Int, the Dark Elf racial magic with illusory spells, some fluff about how people are perfectly able to understand your pantomime as long as you speak a given language, and "you may cast spells without verbal components, however, you must compensate by making wild and exaggerated somatic components." Also get a once per day ability to make minor illusion physical and/or invisible.
>>51069538Gropey, I feel like you meant that last part for >>51069378
>>51069617Herp derp, you're right. Its 5am, i've been drinking, and im getting old.Any clown questions before I go pass out?
>>51069655>i've been drinkingIs your nose red?
>>51069538>hunting down a male proboscis monkey, and fighting it to the death with nothing but a polkadoted loincloth and rolled up newspaperStandard rite of passage stuff. I can dig it.>week print, with the ads taken out, not the sunday editionOoh, a little too hardcore for my tastes.>You can read the funnies before the hunt if you likeYet clearly civilized.A most respectable culture.>>51069378There is definitely a Yakov Smirnoff joke here, but I'm pretty sure it would offend everyone involved.What the hell:In Soviet Russia, people know clowns get red noses from drinking.In America, no. Clowns' noses get red drinking from people.
>>51069655Would you like to see more clown threads on /tg/? Clowns-as-race guy here. There's something extremely satisfying with the thought of derailing another Dwarf-Elf thread with the Clown Master Race?
'Clown Culture' is like Wiccanism. It's not as old as guys like Gropey make it out to be, and the adherents to this manufactured lifestyle draw very thin, almost negligible threads to older cultures to try and create a sense of lineage when really, they're more appropriations and deliberate misinterpretations of historical information.
>>51069676Nah, I don't get drunk-blush. >>51069692Not really, I typically its the same thread everytime, and all the info can be got from the archives. Also, I end up dumping pages of documentation on retards like >>51069699, who doesn't seem to realize that performing families and clown culture in the Americas is firmly traceable to the mid 19thC and the Great Circus era, and the Comedia theater culture is way older. But, ya know, I only went to school for it and was raised in it from birth. What do I know?
>>51069757Like the guy who tried to argue that there were no clowns in medieval times?
>>51069757>But, ya know, I only went to school for it and was raised in it from birth.So do Scientologists and Wiccans. Doesn't make it true.>>51069788Considering the word 'clown' only appears in the Renaissance, and has nothing to do with performing, it's true. Fools and jesters are nothing like contemporary clowns, and part of modern clowning society trying to create a lineage that doesn't exist.
>>51069757>I end up dumping pages of documentation on retardsThat can be funny sometimes, but I for one, see your point.I remember the day in high school I formalized the concept that repeating a punchline does not make the joke funnier.I learned something about both comedy and social retardation that day.
>>51069757How did clowns fair in the Great War? Histroy major here, that's my specialization
>>51069803>Fools and jesters are nothing like contemporary clownsQuick question: Can you name five medieval cultural roles that are closely alike to their contemporary counterparts?
>>51069840BeggarProstituteRich PrickI've only got three.
>>51069840I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "cultural roles", but let's say:noblemanmercenarymerchantpeasant (wageslave)beggar
>>51069788Renaissance, but yes.>>51069803Tell you what sport, you provide me with research and documentation that is better than mine, and i'll give a shit. I do mention its Renaissance. Read this, and go read some books before you make a fool of yourself. https://desuarchive.org/tg/thread/45429890/#45442154>>51069813They come out of the woodwork. Its funny, when they have no education or background in the subject.>>51069818Honestly, I can't tell you. WWI is kind of a blackout for the circus in Europe.>>51069840Martin Luther wrote in support of clowns, who (as briefly mentioned in my short clown theory breakdown >>51068976) typically refer to the deadly sins in characature, which shaped the clown archtypes of today. For a clearer breakdown, read https://desuarchive.org/tg/thread/45429890/#45435116>>51069866Drunk, Glutton, Lecher, Wrathful asshole....
Just leaving this here.
>>51069866>BeggarYeah, alright.>ProstituteI don't know enough to question this. I suspect there is a definite overlap though.>Rich PrickI think this one is highly debatable.Equal levels of being a prick don't count.
>>51069920Major wars in high civilian areas tend to not do terribly well for highly resource consumptive entertainment. I am sure there were people clowning, and juggling and doing trapeze, but in Europe, the circus just wasn't a thing during the world wars, and many circuses had animals taken (horses pressed into cav units, performing pigs and even elephants eaten). Same thing happened to the zoos and such.In America, life went on pretty much as usual, as there was not as much a resource crunch, and no fighting on US soil
>>51069901>I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "cultural roles"I think you guessed it. Roles people had in medieval culture.>noblemanAre their duties and activities really that alike between modern and medieval period?>mercenaryI really don't think so.>merchantI think even a modern street peddler is fairly far removed from a medieval merchant>peasant (wageslave)lolwut. Working at Walmart does not a peasant make.>beggarFair enough.
>>51069954That's entirely true. I suppose a better question is, how did the circuses fare once the war ended?
>>51069954well, in WWI there was Von Richtofen's flying circus, that being somewhat different admittedly?I remember reading something once about a circus that got mixed up in the Spanish Civil War, but in looking closer it seems to be a film released in 2010 called The Last Circus.Anyway, my stepfather was a clown back in the day. A lot of the information you give reminds me strongly of my childhood in some weird ways. I haven't kept with the circus though I do tech in shows, once you get performance in the blood right?
>>51069978Post war economic upswings and sudden influx of young folk returning home with a need of entertainment... The Circus always survives. The American Civil war, the World Wars- the interrupted, but never killed the circus. Fun fact: Larry "Bozo the Clown" Harmon was one of the last US Army Lancers to take the field in WWII, and was a heavily decorated for his actions in combat. >>51070015>well, in WWI there was Von Richtofen's flying circus, that being somewhat different admittedly?Yes, a German Luftstreitkräfte of ace fighter pilots who specialized in dogfights, is completely different. It was just a name>I remember reading something once about a circus that got mixed up in the Spanish Civil WarThey did supposedly press a bunch of male circus performers, still in costume into battle, and we do know for a fact that the Fascist field general used a confiscated circus tent because of its size. >The Last Circus.Goddamnit. NO. That movie was retarded.>once you get performance in the blood right?Well, considering the circus is really and truly starting to die, and only hanging on due to the vaudeville revival... Support your locals if you got them
>>51069972>lolwut. Working at Walmart does not a peasant make.zero social mobility, zero regional mobility, gets by harvest to harvest (paycheck to paycheck) missing one puts them in existentional risk, barely qualifies as people
>>51070074yeh I kick around with a vaudeville crowd. There are a lot of skills and histories which are going lost. My friend's father, likewise, was a clown in Switzerland back in the sixties. The poor bastard just got real sick, and I hate to think of what knowledge will die with him.A tragedy, for sure. Maybe I should hit up my stepfather for some stories. Or even better, his ol' mate Dunk so I don't have to talk to my stepfather.I also take not to watch The Last Circus? It was one of those vaguely recalled details that I threw into the google engine.
>>51070117Also, barely literate, and fearful of the local constables.>>51070134Get the stories from your pop. Skip the movie. If you want to watch a dark comedies about clowns, go with either Vulgar or Shakes the Clown. Vulgar is more fucked up, Shakes is lighter hearted but still pretty dark.
>>51070117>zero social mobilityOkay>zero regional mobilityUnsupported claim in modern society>gets by harvest to harvest (paycheck to paycheck) missing one puts them in existentional riskNot even remotely the same level. They might need to drop their Netflix account and only buy one case of beer month.>barely qualifies as peopleFair enough.Honestly, their duties and activities are widely different.Similarities exist yes, but less, I think, than between the clown and jester.
>>51070151By the gods, she is a beaulty. Is lewd/more riaque looking clowns normal in clown society? Sorry if my question soundwd weird, cellphone and sleep
>>51070151Are you the clown who posted make up tips on /cgl/ and got a bunch of lolita girls stalking you?
>>51070151Do certain clown acts look down on others? What I mean is, do formal clowns look down on slapstick clowns who both look down on titillating clowns?Also, what's your opinion on Mr. Noodle from Sesame Street? Is he a big deal in the clown world?
>>51067236>>51067236>DM is letting me play some clown homebrew classTell the DM if you're playing D&D he needs to fuck off with his hombrew because Clowns already exist in D&D canon, and they are the most dangerous fucking spellcasters in the entire game:You see, in the forgetten realms comics there was an issue which involved clowns, who had the ability to cast spells hiding their verbal components in their jokes.Once upon a fucking time a clown told a joke so funny it killed his entire audience.In order to discover this, a society of Jester formed and promply reanimated his skeleton as a massive titan sized size behemoth that lay Siege to water deep, that could spew fire from it's fucking mouth.Later on, it was revealed that the joke was Power word Kill, but the pint still stands that the Jester's pulled off a massive Skeleton in a ritual without much effort. This is canon, and was also featured as a prestige class in 3.5, which allowed players to perform and depending on the performance, could have PC's end up performing from the streets, to taverns, bars, kings, queens, emeperors, THEN THE FUCKING DEITIES.The final level let's you do the funniest joke in the world power word killBut that isn't the scariest part of the JesterBack in 2e, there was a Jester kit that let you do the above.At level 20 of this kit- a Jester can Draw whatever the fuck he wants from a Deck of many ThingsIn 3.5, there's a variant deck of many things which can force a massive number of transformations on a player, even vampirism for example.Jester's are fucking Dangerous fucks, they could cast an epic spell and no one would notice until it's too late.
>>51070205>Not even remotely the same level. They might need to drop their Netflix account and only buy one case of beer month.It means you can't pay rent, what are you talking about?
>>51071477>missing one paycheck means you can't pay rent.Or, the rent is late, you pay a fee and eat ramen noodles for weeks.Because the feudal Lord can't just kill you or even evict you for 90 days.
>>51071328I don't remember the deck of many things thing, but I do remember them having some control over the Rod of Wonder
I'm playing a clown in a 5e game right now. It's been ridiculously fun, I refluff a lot of spells to be clown-themed, like Acid Spray from a flower on the chest, or Guiding Bolt as a thrown pie to the face. It's been amusing hamming up some scenes.
I once did a whole town that was a circus. Streets thronging with performers and ear-shattering honking.The PCs instantly got their shit stolen by a light-fingered mime.
>>51071739I hope they did the right thing and burned that place to the ground
>>51070074>the circus is dyingWHAT?WHEN?WHY?it will be a sad day when the circus' of the world die.
Can you all please go back with your shitty fetish to /d/?
>>51072249The circus, as you know it, has been banned from my city and many other cities in my country.'No animal acts' and since almost all circus have animals, they're banned as a whole.
>>51069274>/cgl/Oh, cool. I was actually going to go there to ask a question, but it looks like I might not need to leave the comfort of /tg/.What is the general opinion on /cgl/ about Adam Savage. I've watched some of his one day builds on Tested, and he seems to put a lot of effort into his costumes. Is he /cgl/ approved?
OP here, thanks for the help everyone.
>>51072465MY city used to have a lot of espectables, from free to very expensive. We are a brazillian town that has quite big grass plains along the lake coast, so they used to make their tents in there, just two blocks from my home. Alos we have some sort of "week of laughs", that gets comedians and other actors (including clows) to make espectables to boost culture.But not onlly the animal ban, but the government stopped giving a loan to culture acts, making all the sort of Expectable oriented people start to go completelly broke.When I was a child I was actually cared of clowns Now I havee an fetish for them, and theres almost none wandering the streets anymore, maybe at the parks.
>>51075837My city just had scary clown sightings.At least it wasn't mimes.
>>51076206>NottinghamFUCK I THOUGHT THAT WAS EVERYWHERE ELSE, NOT HERE.
>>51069070>>51069214>You merely adopted the honk, I was born in it; molded by it.
Gropey, explain why you spookt people this year.
>>51067573I keep thinking Bard is a better choice since it has to be rogue-ish but magic needs to be in there somewhere.Something heavily reliant on performing and illusion. Since half the time entertainer clowns are magicians anyway. They need some kind of magic that comes off looking like balloons, flowers, playing cards, and explosions.
Whatever you do, make sure to hug everyone you meet.

>>51070117But they are not property of Wal Mart nor are their families tied to it. They can quit and go work at Burger King any time they wish.A better comparison might be the fruit pickers in Northern California who make less than needed to get by and can be reported and deported at any second, which is what a lot of farm owners lord over them so they will not get out of line.
>>51079270>the most basic of magic tricksWho would be impressed by this?
>>51076957Nope. There is no escape.[honking intensifies].jpg
>>51079270It's obvious how she did the trick.There's a portable bleach dispenser inside the tube that flash-whitens the feather duster. It's activated by a hidden button on the side.Oldest trick in the book.
>>51079316Who cares nigga, it's cute
>>51079360>cuteIt just reminds me how people who aren't white make really weird ass looking clowns

>>51070362Clown kink is a real thing, and adult entertaining clowns are indeed a real thing. Gropey is my adult entertainment name, and not my original name.> Is lewd/more riaque looking clowns normal in clown society? Not really. Two separate things that never really cross.>>51070745Yup. >>51071185Acts? No. Professional and heritage clowns will always look down on amateur birthday party clowns and the like.>Also, what's your opinion on Mr. Noodle from Sesame Street? Is he a big deal in the clown world?I have no opinion, and he's not a deal at all. >>51072249Uhhh.... For the past two decade? Our culture as a whole is just an instant gratification society that can see anything on demand on their youtube. Outside of the vaudeville arts scene, no one cares about the circus anymore. >>51072261I've been here since the beginning. You cannot escape. Honk.>>51072305For as much as I love the character, except for the makeup, nothing about Kefka is clownish.>>51072465Most circuses these days haven't had animals in years, or only have dogs and horses. People STILL are fucking retards. The big circuses treat all their animals well, but fucking mexican circuses in the 70s ruined elephants for everyone.>>51072492I can't speak for /cgl/ but from a costuming standpoint, he's a professional. Costuming and special effects are literally his job. He's cool.>>51076206>>51076957>>51078158Fucking cheap goddamn immature bullshit. A fucking 50 year old volunteer clown who was leaving a children's hospital was attacked on the street due to this fucking crap. She had her jaw, three ribs and her arm broken. The various national and international clown associations promise legal support if we ever find and take down asshole doing this. >>51079182He has no idea what the fuck he's talking about. Go easy on him.
>>51079470What is the perspective of people who want to dress up as a clown for a weekend but not be clowns?
>>51079470How much did Gacy hurt clowning in your opinion?

>>51079470How do you feel about juggalos?
>>51068073Is it a funny boner?
>>51079508It depends. If you're not a jackass, go for it! Clowns are fun! The very image is one of entertainment for most.If you're an asshat who is purposefully scaring people, we'll have problems. Back home in NoLa, durring carnival, halloween, newyears etc, we'd literally roam the streets bending balloons for people and having fun, but if we saw some "scary clown" bullshit, we'd pull them between some buildings and have a discussion with them. I still have a ribber chicken full of lead birdshot for more serious discussions.>>51079830Really? I might do a dump tonight then.>>51079894Honest talk, I think they are lame as hell, but in general they tend to be good people (if low class and trashy) who keep to themselves and have a very self supportive social community. More over, I have even met a handful that wanted to learn how to do a few things, but its mostly fire performance and making balloon strapons. I have never once had a public issue with a juggalo, and they accept that they are not everyone's cup of tea.
>>51079981C A R L O S !
>>51079991>but if we saw some "scary clown" bullshit, we'd pull them between some buildings and have a discussion with themAs someone from your neighboring state of Mississippi, fuck you for doing this. Leading through fear is no leadership at all. Lead through example you fuck.

>>51080163You over think it. I mean college fucks causing property damage and accosting people.Use some common sense.
>>51079991I'm now imagining a guy getting beat up by a gang of clowns. So much honking.
>>51080221It happens more than you would think. Clown culture is a lot like gypsie culture. They stick to their own and are inherently very violent in groups.
>>51080183I missed you, Gropey. I forget, are you in the LARP threads?
>>51080183How do I become a clown?
>>51079316Its not the trick, anon. Its the presentation.Its all about charisma. Honk Honk.
>>51080272You don't, unless your family were clowns, and you were raised around clowns, and have gone to actual college and studied clowning.
>>51079270Please do that with my asshole, clown qt
>>51080221Actually, there is typically more crying, and we almost never had to beat up anyone. I am a big guy, and this was before I started putting on weight. When four burly clowns ask you to stop scaring children and grabbing women, you tend to listen.>>51080254Actually, as both a clown and a Rom, there isn't much violence in either (at least in America). I see more violence in New Orleans culture and my Italian side of the family.>>51080262All the time, and the thread is a constant one in /cgl/. Feel free to visit!>>51080272You have to have a lot of skill, and a pedigree helps. Then you have to audition for a school. The three big schools left are Quebec, Brazil and Ukraine. Then you have to hope to get in, hope to pass and hope to get picked up by a show, as for most its a "work until you can't" kinda job.You can also take some summer courses and do volunteer or party work. You can also take courses just for fun. I teach summer courses for people who just want to learn for shiggles.>>51080419Pretty much.
>>51080053>>51080163Our clowns in Cali do the same for us and they never target kids or whatever but the jackasses who harass people. Its really a public service.
>>51073245best fucken guessportmanteau/smash words..thing of perriwinkle, the purpley color, and wimp
>>51080541wrong thread, brody.
>>51080506What skills, in your opinion, are essential to being a clown?
>>51080183>implying that whole post wasn't a joke
>>51080666Well Satan, tumbling, buffoonery, pratfall, mime and general physical comedy as well as good improve skills are required. This is what the entirety of clowning is about.Secondary skills, such as balloon sculpture, juggling, balance skills, hand magic etc, are not required, but like any job, make you more market able. If you do not have the formerly listed skills though, you are not a clown, but a performer in a clown costume. This in itself is not a bad thing, and its most common in what we know as party clowns".For example, I am a clown, as well as a proper sideshow stunt performer. I also have balancing skills, hand magic, balloon sculpture, prop comedy, stilt walking, fire perfromance, unicycle, and knife/axe/cleaver throwing skills. I can't juggle for shit, and have had some of the best in the country try, and fail to teach me.>>51080772Sorry man, I have come to expect less of /tg/ as of late.
>>51069538I want to see your egg now~!Also, is Ronald McFondle a real clown too?
>>51080843Yeah, that post was obviously a joke. I wouldn't expect that from you, mr.Clown.Anyway, do you enjoy clowning? If so, why? What makes the way of the Honk so pleasurable to you?
>>51080967I have actually managed to go all these years without anyone seeing my full face on 4chan, and plan to keep it that way, and even then, I changed my face after I split with my ex, which is kinda a big deal in the clowning world. Its a personal thing. I am much more regular in showing my unpainted face. And the character is not a real clown, but they do hire party clowns and have their own "Ronald McDonald Clown Class" for teaching them. The face is registered. >>51080978>Mr.ClownPlease, call me Gropey.>Anyway, do you enjoy clowning? If I didn't, I wouldn't do it.>If so, why?I really can't explain fully, but its a bit of psychological freedom of expression. Only when your face is covered, are you truly who you are. I am also big into tradition and entertaining.That all said, aside from teaching classes, and the occasional vaudeville/burlesque/fetish show, I haven't been a full time performer in years. My current state doesn't have much need of a regular pro clown or sideshow performer, and I am a full time military historian for a couple museums now.
>>51081091> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74Bk01X67LMNot Ronald McDonald, Ronald McFondle.
>>51081103Ah. From what I can tell, no. He just a guy in clown makeup using it for an image, like ICP. No shame in it, though I think its lame.Now Ouchey the Clown, Sugar Weasel the Clown, and other professional BDSM Doms.... Many of them have professional training.
>>51080843>I can't juggle for shit, and have had some of the best in the country try, and fail to teach me.How is that possible? Do you have some kind of hand coordination disorder?
>>51081184When did you last cry? I hope the break with your ex was easy. Have you read a good book recently?Do you have any amazing clown tales like the one with the imaginary elephant?
>>51081184Fair enough. He does a bunch of "wrestling" and stuff during his shows so I thought he might have had some training. Is "Shock" Clowning a thing? Kind of like Geek Shows?
>>51081184> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_RBWSbZm8kLike this stuff. I don't know my clowns is all.Did Steve-O from Jackass cause an increase in interest in Clowning?
>>51079017What is this?
>>51079991Have you started your /s/ thread yet, Gropey?
>>51081192Nope. Im actually really good at knife throwing, balancing, etc. Some people just can't juggle. I am one of them.>>51081218>When did you last cry? I got one of those cup-shots that makes the world stop last February at an SCA practice. Even with the stainless steel codpiece and maille skirt, I dropped like a sack of potatoes. >I hope the break with your ex was easy. HAHAHAHA! No. I spent two months solid, train hopping with a suitcase full of props, food and a pistol, performing on the street and whatever burlesque show would have me. I was drunk and in clown face 24/7, and looking to find a place to die. That was now 8 years ago though. I was with her for 5. >Have you read a good book recently?The Gentlemen Bastards series by Scott Lynch. A series about a gang of high-end thieves in fantasy NOT!Venice. >Do you have any amazing clown tales like the one with the imaginary elephant?Im actually waiting for the editor to return the current draft, and hope to publish next year.>>51081222>Is "Shock" Clowning a thing?I would certainly say so.>>51081238>Did Steve-O from Jackass cause an increase in interest in Clowning?Holy shit, you know your stuff! Yes, he actually did. Whippit-burned-out retardation aside, he's actually quite talented.>>51081343Doing it now.
>>51081395Gropey, you ever did any drugs?
>>51081395>Im actually waiting for the editor to return the current draft, and hope to publish next year.HYPE. Best of luck.
>>51081218>I hope the break with your ex was easy. Pic related.
>>51081395Will you tell us when your clown tales get published?
>>51081489Not really. Weed does nothing for me, I have no interest in hard drugs. I will very occasionally use molly at parties, but now I have no hookup I trust. I do enjoy shrooms when I can find them.Typically, its tobacco and booze.>>51081491Thanks>>51081514Can't believe you saved that drunk moping. Guess you deserve to see her. A picture that didn't get published from a greenroom shoot. We made it in a couple magazines.
>>51081606I like money, so yes.
>>51081615I just hope that you have a great year and that you feel something remotely resembling happiness.
>>51081615>I've just spent the last hour drinking deep the clown lore and vicariously living a life of hope and heartbreak.Goddammit, Gropey. I didn't come here to feel. Post more clown feels. I'm eating this shit up like skittles.
>>51081343Canceled. I forgot why I don't do /tg/ or clown threads on /s/ anymore. The new rules make my pics too small in resolution to post.>>51079576Can't believe I missed this, but YES. He fucked up a lot of shit for us. In my clowning psychology course, we did a whole section on him. We have very strict rules on face paint design, and his face purposefully subverted all the rules of design we have, to make it subtly predatory and unnerving. >>51081661Thanks Anon! Money is tight, and I need to lose some more weight, but things are generally good. Im fighting ACL and hopefully getting to the nationals, and I have a nice girlfriend.I hope that you have a great year full of honkings and critical dice rolls.
>>51081752The show must go on.
>>51081755Alright Gropey, just do what I told you to do in your last /tg/ thread. Make a imgur albums of your stuff. Do it.
>>51076206Mimes are the ultimate silent killer.
>>51081755When your book gets published will you sign copies of it for us fa/tg/uys?
>>51081755I heard Gacy went against typical clown face paint design but I didn't know he did it on purpose. You'd think he'd know that making himself look more predatory would stick up some red flags.
>>51081787Ehhh. Too much work. I am giving thought to starting a thread on /b/, but that may be asking for trouble....>>51081818Pic related. >>51081822"From Gropey, to Fa/tg/uy: Skub is for fags">>51081849He was a small-time, amateur party clown in a podunk town. He pretty much created the killer clown before it was really a thing. Who couldn't have guessed he was more than just a little weird? besides, by all accounts, he was great with children, and a genuinely good entertainer.
>>51081915With your former SO how much would you interact "in character?" Was there a dividing line with you in and out of the paint? Did you ever have serious relations with people outside of the industry? What did they think of it? Did they have you do anything in character that was lewd? How attractive do you find pic related? Was she a good representative of the clowning community? Can I see part of your egg?
>>51082050Lolita, stop Stalking Gropey, you will never get his sacred clown bloodline in your childrem.
>>51082088>being told the truth still hurtswhy you do this anon?
>>51082050>With your former SO how much would you interact "in character?" Was there a dividing line with you in and out of the paint?You are who you are. You're on 24/7, and its a blunt fact of life in the business. "Going Pagliacci" is what we call having a burnout or breakdown in the business. Me interacting with her both in and out of face was the same, really.>Did you ever have serious relations with people outside of the industry?When I still toured and such, no. Living on the road and on the stage isn't conducive to a stable relationship if they don't share the lifestyle.>What did they think of it? Did they have you do anything in character that was lewd? Hookups were typically BECAUSE of the sideshow or clowning. I like clown girls, and girls like clowns. I also moonlighted as a pay-to-play Dom for a while.>How attractive do you find pic related?Cute, but not by my clown kink standards.>Was she a good representative of the clowning community? I never actually watched the show. It was past my childhood, or interest.>Can I see part of your egg?see >>51081091>>51082088As long as its not one of the girls that tried to break into my car for souvenirs... You ever see a lolita get chased down a street by a burlesque dancer with a can of mace? >you will never get his sacred clown bloodline in your childrenNo one will. I shoot blanks, and don't plan on getting it reversed any time soon.
>>51080053>Leading through fear is no leadership at all. Lead through example you fuck.Spoken like someone who's never led anything more harrowing than an inter-office potluck.
>>51079991>If you're not a jackass, go for it!>-Gropey the ClownI need a suitably appropriate clown image to go along with this universal sage advice.

>>51082452Accept no substitutes.
>>51082856I miss that hat. Lost it somewhere in Arizona.
>>51082846Handsome, if a little jarring
>>51082860Classic, but less than the universal feel I was thinking of.

>>51082846>That double chin thoughfatass
>>51082940His head is turned, numbnuts. Look at >>51082817. This is before he got depressed-fat.
>>51078958that game made me sad
>>51082964He is fat as fuck, his hands literally look like hamfist ogre paws in more recent photos.I feel bad for him.
Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor...I am Pagliacci.
>>51083003To paraphrase a famous quote: I am fat, but you are retarded, and while I am getting back in shape, you will always be a retard. No need to feel bad. I do have big ham-fists. I am a big guy in general. Do you have tiny Trump-hands or something?>>51083050Classic.
>>51083003Women love guys with big hands though, anon. All the lolitas and faungirls love him
>>51083071Can you tell us about the kinkiness of clown girls ?
>>51083003>I feel bad for himThat sounds like a falsehood.
>>51083118Honk honk>>51083184Clown kink is a gateway kink. Non-threatening, playful, and provides the aspect of "otherness"; You're not who you are while you're in face, allowing a bit more comfort in trying new things. It pretty much always includes a lot of harder stuff.
>>51083071You're fat my dude. Like unhealthy fat.You'll never be in shape and you'll die young probably from heart failure.Meanwhile my life is amazing, and I'm super fit. I just feel bad for you because you're a delusional fat person, and fat people deserve to be ridiculed for being disgusting.@ the restDon't reply to me if you're a sycophant.
>>51083370You're adorable. I love you, silly goose.
>>51083391Back on the treadmill hampig.
>>51083400I love bratty dirty talk! Makes me want to bend you over my knee like a bad boy.Also, an aside, treadmills are shit on your body. I prefer a dynamic rowing machine or a stationary bike.
>>51083400>He's manorexicAh, yes. The fabled Euro "Healthy".
>>51083443lmaoDo you think you're tough because you do faggy hema?>rowing machine>bikeNo wonder you're a fat waste. Start swimming, that's a far better full body work out. You're just half assing it.
Gropey, I demand you make an imgur folder of your clown and faun girl porn!
>>51083443How can I find a clown-kink-club in my area? Is there some kind of online directory?
>>51083481Haha. You sure trolled him my good sir. That was an epic troll. I wonder what pathetic thing he'll say next!
>>51083562To be fair I want to give him legit health tips now. Because he's obviously kinda gross and doesn't have a clue, and that's sad.Swimming is a great work out especially if you're trying to lose weight because you're using your entire body and not just try to do "spot reduction" you feel me. It also isn't hard on your body and joints because the water supports you.
>>51083481I do swim, just not in pools. Its also currently snowing, and I do not have thick enough blubber to survive the cold.>>51083500How rude.>>51083536>How can I find a clown-kink-club in my area? You'll never find a specific one, but your local kink club in general is a good place to start.>Is there some kind of online directory?Fetlife has several clown kink groups.>>51083583If you wanted to give legit tips, you'd never suggest a treadmill. I really do miss home for the weather. The water is only 50ish right now, and I would totally be swimming. Sadly, im in Va now, and after mid October, swimming is off the options list.
>>51083583Post a pic of yourself with a timestamp, if you're such an Adonis.
>>51083625>Its also currently snowing, and I do not have thick enough blubber to survive the cold.You're half assing so hard it hurts.Look up Wim Hof and start doing cold conditioning and polar bear swims. That will help your abused heart muscle.>Walking is bad>said like a true fattyA treadmill is fine actually, you just have to use it properly which you clearly don't know how to do. Do a 45 degree incline at a reasonable stride and invest in some gym shoes with proper support, that's all you need.
>>51083671Post a pic of yourself with a timestamp
>>51083625>Not having thick enough blubber to survive the cold>not part of the polar bear plunge club>not a sad seal like me with an unhealthy amount of blubber
>>51083684>>51083667Last time I did y'all got butthurt and accused me of being fake.But I'm around if you bother looking. ;)
>>51083667>>51083684He'll never do it.
>>51083707Can't find a picture with your IP address in the archives. Repost it with "clown" written on a piece of paper, that would show us.
>>51083708Because I'm fat. Almost as bad as you, Gropey. I'm also an internet tough guy.
>>51083821AkcatuatlaulyInternet tough guys are usually the ones getting defensive and saying they'll lay hands on someone for calling them fat on the internet.
I think im going to give /b/ a shot for clown porn dumping. Any interest?>>51083821Honest, anon. Try out a dynamic rower (IE, the one that has the sliding leg section) and a stationary bike. Swimming is just not feasible in this weather, and pools are disgusting. Along with my pell and weight training am about 30 pounds away from the spring goal. Give it a shot.>>51083904Oh, I full accept I am fat.
>>51083930You're also retarded though.
>>51083930>am about 30 pounds away from the spring goal.How much do you weigh right now
>>51083930I'd stick to /s/. They need the traffic, and the contribution is more likely to be appreciated. Image search your pics if they're not OC, you'd be surprised how many HR versions are still out there.
>>51083965>>am about 30 pounds away from the spring goal.>How much do you weigh right now...about thirty pounds more than his spring goal?Weight is a poor measure anyway.
>>51084001He's like 5'8" I imagine he's closer to 200 atm, which would be terrible.Wondering what his diet is like. Doesn't he come from the south or some similar shithole?He's a gypsy, dude doesn't have good genes to begin with, he has to take care of himself.
>>51083930Thanks, Gropey. I used to be 260 lbs. because of shitty medication, but I fixed that, and started working out- normal stuff like jumping jacks, push ups, etc. I've dropped 35 lbs at a very slow rate. I'm poor af, so I don't own any equipment, but I've been doing alright with what I have. I might start saving up for a rower, though.
>>51084052Your talents are impressive.Now measure his inseam with your imagination.Then, gauge his cholesterol with your astute observational skills.
>>51083955You tried. >>51083965About 250ish as of this morning. >>51083988>>51084005Again, /s/ is not an option. It bounces 90% of my pics for resolution minimums. New /s/ would have better traffic if they got rid of the obscenely high resolution requirements. >>51084052A little over 5'10" as of my last physical. I am also built like a brick, even back at my healthiest when you could see my abs.>Wondering what his diet is like.Mostly chicken, leafy greens, olive oil, hard cheeses and whole grain pasta. >He's a gypsy, dude doesn't have good genes to begin with, he has to take care of himself.Thats one I never heard.>>51084095Depression and alcohol fucked me. Look into prison conditioning like hopups and burpees.
>>51084158Far be it from me to judge another man's paint, but that seems kind of low effort. Do you know the story to it?
>>51084191Minimalist highlight over full coverage exaggeration. Different strokes and all that. Some folks use more, some less. Sometimes I clown in nothing but nose and eyebrows with some blush.
>>51084136Dude blogs about his life all the time.
This was honestly quite an interesting threadAlmost makes me want make one of my next characters a clown.
>This ThreadSureHey /tg/ Anyone have any idea what Pic is from?
>>51084562Tales of Arcana Card GameAlso, read the thread:>>51082708>>51079017
>>51084561yeah. i wasnt sure what i was expecting but im quite glad i chanced upon it Q___Q clowns are serious business
>>51084639They are indeed. I'm going to go off now and figure out how to make a clown paladin
>>51084677Honk for justice, with the blessing of saint Giggles.
>>51084772I remember you talked about the clown code once. You had a pic of a sign too.
>>51082940He's a normal looking guy.I don't see any other anons posting their pictures in this thread.
>>51084826I found it!I want the paladin to have some decent substance to them so this is a good start>>51084772I shall honk till I can't honk any longer
Does anyone have the storytime of the Clown in World of Darkness?
>>51085145Your piety is admirable, young clown brother. We of the order of the nose, shall allow you one of our relics to take with you on your quest.The helm of honkingThe ballista of poultryThe sword of saint JimboChoose wisely.
>>51085358What do you think of the clown in SS13?
>>51085370Its a fun game. Can't really go into more detail than that.
>>51085358...Did you really make a balloon sword and take that picture just for a gag post?You really are a clown.
>>51085435What is that, an SS13 story for ants?
>>51085642off topic, but what do you think of the 40k eldar harlequins? it's vaguely related to clowns
>>51085145Oh, totally forgot: In the historic recreation group I am in, we like to do a lot of theme tournaments. This isn't my local group, but one group did a "Feast of Fools" event, and made a suit of motley/painted his kit for the event, as well as made some themed batons.>>51085758Well, thats certainly a thing that exists now.
>>51085862I got out of 40k in highschool, as im more a fantasy guy. I love the old Harlequin fluff and still have a bunch of the classic metal models though.
Ay Gropey, what's good?And while I'm asking questions, what your favorite drink, not specifically alcoholic? But either or is fine.
>>51085358Since nobody else is answering, I shall claim the prize! I choose the helm of honking!
>>51086288Dark spiced rum, sweet tea, and Chartruese liquor.>>51086345SO BE IT!
Alright, say I want to play a duck (like Howard, Daffy, et cetera) who is a Tramp. Should said duck wear the nose over his nostrils or on the end of his bill?
>>51085358The ballista of poultry will be mine!
> people still give this fat ass attention whore attentionHe doesn't even know what he's talking about vis-a-vis HEMA, and relies on broad ignorance on clown shit to make himself look more accomplished than he is.
>>51086690...Except that he does and always has sources and proof. We're having a good thread, please go away.
>>51086690Here's your (you). Leave now.
>>51086690> people still give this fat ass attention whore attentionProjecting much? Or just jealous that even if everything you say about him is true, we're still more inclined to pay more attention to him than you?
>>51086613I am legitimately unsure. What setting are you playing? Mutants and Masterminds?>>51086639SO BE IT!
>>51086866>I am legitimately unsure. What setting are you playing?Homebrew setting, Codename:Spandex (Golden Heroes). It's mostly a low powered game, but some flying saucers have shown up and this guy is from another plane of existence.
>>51067236Played one called "Binky the Clown" in Shadowrun.
I just now have a dire need for clown porn.Gropey you going to make that thread on /b/?
You know I was neutral on the whole clown thing before, but after this thread I now hate clowns.
I am dumbfounded by this thread, and have a powerful need to learn more about this culture.Gropey, do you have a reading list for the uninitiated? The longer the better.
>>51087939>You know I was neutral on the whole clown thing before, but after this thread I now hate clowns.Good! Use your aggressive feelings, anon. Let the hate flow through you!
>>51088403Go fuck yourself Bobo, your wife is a hag and your daughter is a Confederation fucking slut.
>>51080506I don't know what clowns are like in America, but in Europe (the Iberian pen, at least) they're close-knit clans of conmen and thieves. Think Khajiit.Also, I've always liked clowns and I'm sorry that people think you're creepy. The circus is lovely. I wish I was dexterous enough to perform magic of be a clown myself, but I'm far too clumsy.
>>51088703Gypsies, not clowns, oops.
>>51080843>I can't juggle for shit, and have had some of the best in the country try, and fail to teach me.>>51081192>How is that possible?>>51081395>Some people just can't juggle. I am one of them.Yeah, I've experienced this, to a lesser degree, with wheel throwing.I can handbuild literally anything, but it took a year of hard work to achieve mediocrity at wheel throwing.It's very Taran Wanderer.
>>51088598>>51088403Why the fuck did you have to remind me of that horrible shitty short and series. I had forgotten it was a thing.
>>51068948What archetype does Pixi, the clown from the OP fit into?She does magic tricks:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUUSDcp0zLk(I found her Youtube channel by reverse image searching the image in the OP, and then finding a link to her channel in a post on Reddit.)
>>51085358It's me or this sword is extremely phalic?
>>51085358I went to sleep after I made my last post, so I guess the Sword of Saint Jimbo is mine!
>>51090502You have to admit that the film was surprisingly good.
>>51083481>>51086690>HEMA>SCA Pick one. SCA is LARP compared to HEMA. You know how many rules actual warfare had? Zero.
>>51091698>You know how many rules actual warfare had? Zero.Every martial art with formal competitions has rules, anon. Even in the middle ages, tournaments had rules to try to minimize the number of knight who accidentally killed one another.
>>51091839A lot of jousts scored points on how many lances you break on your opponent.
>>51088703In Europe there is also a distinction between the theatrical clown and the circus clown
>>51091839>Tournament fighting>He said warfareAnon. Pls.
>>51092359HEMA is tournament fighting, anon. It's a martial art like kenjutsu or boxing, and it's practiced for tournament fighting, just like most other combat sports nowadays.
>>51088703>>51088865I've visted family in Italty several times, and let me break down something. You met Rom, and never knew it.Gypsies are to us, as niggers are to black people. The worst, most public image of a race.>>51090489I can do some damn good contact juggling, but traditional catch juggling is beyond me.And I feel you on throwing on a wheel. My nerves are shot and I cant feel when im applying too much pressure. I can hand build like a champ though.>>51090502This guy is an idiot and you should ignore him. She is a blanc, or whiteface in look but she is a party clown and thus not a defined character.>>51090654Honk honk>>51091698I do HEMA, ACL, Larping and SCA bro. Also, SCA sticktag doesn't pretend to be war, but a Pas-de-armes (tournament of peace) with batons.
>>51092377Nowadays, it is, but it's material is taken from fechtbuchs for people who would actually be going into battle.
tfw someone cries so well you want to hurt them because you want people to hurt so they cry more. It's a very strange feeling.
>>51092541>She is a blanc, or whiteface in look but she is a party clown and thus not a defined character.What stops a party clown from playing a defined character? Like, wouldn't the good ones create a persona as a part of their routines? I mean, they're still ultimately entertainers, right?
>>51093065Because the archetypes are specifically designed and defined for interaction with opposing clown characters, in a performing setting. This is the heritage of the characters of traditional comedia, which enables smooth transitions, and recognizable rolls, and a strong starting point for improvised performance between clowns.Party clowns have personalities and chatacters sure, but the ridged archetypes are not needed, and can actually hamper interaction with your audience, in a one on one setting.
>>51093390Roles* goddamn predictive typing.
>>51093390Ah, I see.Are musical groups like Insane Clown Posse or KISS considered proper clowns, then, out of curiosity? Do you know if they've had their face paint registered?...What happens if a non-registered party clown gets caught copying a registered clown's make-up?
>>51081395>Gentlemen BastardsMy AFRICAN AMERICAN. Waiting on book 4 still.
>>51093585>musical groups like Insane Clown Posse or KISS considered proper clownsNo, and we discussed this twice in this thread already.>Do you know if they've had their face paint registered?Not as clowns, but they are registered as logos through international copyright standards>What happens if a non-registered party clown gets caught copying a registered clown's make-up?Probably nothing. No one cares unless they are doing something specifically that may be harmful or illegal, and going through the trouble of specifically copying another clown's face is a lot of work, and requires you to be physically shaped like the person as well. TL:DRIf a party clown has similar makeup to a professional, and isn't doing anything wrong, no one cares. If they are pretending to BE said clown, or are attempting to monetize or market the face as an image, there is a problem
>>51093864I really wish there was more official art to help build some settings and minis off of. Might help me convince my group to play a game like it.
No, but now that you mention it that would be kind of fun.
>>51079991>we'd pull them between some buildings and have a discussion with them.And you wonder why people think clowns are scaryThough seeing a Pennywise spooky clown being beat up by a gang of slapstick silly clowns with oversized mallots would be quite a hoot
>>51093999>Implying you were not already deep in my magical realm>Implying you were not considering a timeshare>>51094012Most of the time, it was quite literally a frank talk. "He man, stop being fucktarded." and thats that.peak wood
>>51093976Same. I'd love a large intricate campaign full of thievery and political intrigue set in one large city
Hey Gropey, I want to get into being a profesional clown dominant in the BDSM scene.Do you think I'd have a chance? I love clowning even when it's not lewd.
>>51094133>a profesional clown dominant in the BDSM sceneLike, both at the same time? Because, man, I don't think anybody would take you seriously if you're doming in the clown costume.
>>51094178>tell sub to undo my fly>Cards fly out
>>51094192>pull out a paddle to spank the sub>it's actually rubber chicken
>>51081615Love is a hell of a drug, ain't it?
>>51094133I moonlighted at it, but clown or not, there is simply one major thing against you: Professional male doms are rare, because its easy as fuck to find a male play partner. This is why most professionals are women.To be blunt: Unless you are already experienced and have clout as a professional, being a clown (which is super niche anyways) won't get you anywhere. I started as, and still do inquisition/medieval torture/witchhunting scenes occasionally, and the clown thing was suggested by a friend. As a clown Dom, I got more jobs performing bachelor and bachelorette parties, club events etc, than I did regular clients. >>51094224Yes, and clown shoes. Very popular for spanking.
>>51094103Be my guide Gropey. I want to get lost and never find my way back.
>>51093407https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLGS8wNLsYwwhats your opinion on clowns that let you staple money to their balls
>>51067236Yes, in the game of life.
>>51094394Order me a fresh bag of balloons, and i'll draw you a map, and write you a deed. >>51094825If thats what his crowd likes, then more power to him. I wouldn't let anyone put a staple gun near mine, but I do a magic trick that includes staple gunning playing cards to my chest, tongue and forehead, and letting people staple gun bills on to me is a common way for me to rake in tips when doing sideshow (>>51082860). I also let people smash cinderblocks off my crotch with a sledgehammer.
>>51095105How do you deal with the pain? Also, do you get any funny looks at stores when you hand the clerks money covered in blood?
>>51095105What's with that nail thing going through your cheeks?
>>51095370>How do you deal with the pain?Pain is an illusion.>Also, do you get any funny looks at stores when you hand the clerks money covered in blood?I wash them first. US money is cotton/linen blend, and I just hand wash them in warm water with a little borax.>>51095502I was performing for a blood themed show at the local big fetish club.
>>51095549was it real blood or fake blood
>>51095676Fake blood costs money.
>>51095549I guess you can say that you're a money launderer
>>51095549Aren't you worried about scarring up your face or getting an infection?
>>51095710Now that's EDGY!Mind showing us the nail-hole, then?
>>51096944I think you mean Chaotic Good, not edgy
>>51096982>Injuring yourself to make money off blood fetishists>not edgy
>>51097102>not getting a joke>tfw I'm not getting the joke eitherIt is a bit edgy but people do what they have to.
>>51096186*rimshot*>>51096682Nope. Custom made surgical grade stainless, and I own a mini autoclave from back in my body modding days. I am actually APP certified.>>51096944The hole is long gone. Proper aftercare and sharp tools make that easy. The whole allure of sideshow is that when I roll around in broken glass, lay on a bed of nails, or climb a ladder of swords, is that I don't get hurt. >>51097343>Holey>Anon has a point.
