>Horrible abominations made entirely out of negative emotions start to crawl out of people's minds.>Toy weapons are very effective against them because they are charged with positive emotions, even a Super Soaker is more or less a acid gun.>Soldiers go into battle with toy weapons against mind demons.What should the bbeg of the campaign be?
>>45660972Some sort of incarnation of corrupted childhood innocence, maybe? Basically the villains from Little Fears, I guess.
>>45660972A corrupted Santa Clause.
>>45661035>>45661028Well, it seems the general idea is that it has to be something held dear at child-hood, but is easy to corrupt. I agree with Santa Claus. Though I think if you could find some sort of beacon of 'Innocence' and corrupted that, regardless of what it was, it'd work nicely.
>>45661071What does every child hold closest to their hearts? Most of the time it's their parents.Maybe some kind of corrupted "Father of Humankind"?
>>45660972A monster that resembles the adult your childhood you thought they would become. The PCs are average adults and then they have to fight their childhood dreams and hopes given form.
>>45660972>What should the bbeg of the campaign be?An autistic neckbeard whose misery and self hate brought the mind demons into being in the first place.He throws printed futanari and NTR hentai charged with his own brand of faggotry at the brave heroes who dare face him.
>>45661147So like...astronauts, cowboys, and princesses, all demonized and evil and shit? That could be cool.
>>45661028>>45661071There was a disney channel movie where the bad guy was the boogeyman. However, in-setting a boogeyman was a child's imaginary friend who the child was forced to stop believing in too early (Or something like that).I think that works for the kind of setting OP is in the market for.
>>45660972>Abominations made out of negative emotions.So...40k Deamons?
>>45661147This is a sublime post.
>>45661207surprised it took 10 posts for the 40kids to get here
>>45661147So I'd have to fight Maverick?Does he have a jet mzde of negative emotions, as well?
>>45661237To be fair, it does kinda sound like Chaos Deamons.
>>45661237>when I grow up I want to kill Slaaneshi faggotsBut Slaanesh isn't real.>when I grow up I want to kill faggots.And that's how it started.
Personally I think the best would be a giant indistinguishable bloody mishmash of different animals. I seem to remember one violent animal cartoon movie freaked out a bunch of kids good, and most kids know to be afraid of a nasty looking animal if it shows its teeth and is loud.Santa on the other hand is only going to be scary to the really innocent kids
>>45661147This is perfect. They are everything you could have been and more.
Damn it, I'd watch this movie.
>>45661147When defeated or closer to defeat the dream adults start acting more and more like children (namely crying and throwing tantrums) and it ends with them reverting back into a crying 4-12 year old.
I would probably go with some kind of teacher, maybe the head teacher and the various other teachers are the BBEG's henchmen.School is pretty much where childhood/innocence goes to die, where the majority of negative emotions come from. There are so many things to use; the math(s) teacher that makes you feel like an idiot for answering 54 to 7 times 8, the gym/p.e. teacher that doesn't care when you get hurt or even laughs at you for being a wuss, not to mention bullies and the sudden social pressures.Though I have a feeling what anons will post with whatever caused them the most childhood trauma.
>>45661515Why not a office building? After school comes work and the streets, where whatever last shards of innocence you had are wiped away.
>>45661515now I'm just picturing the final boss fight being set to Another Brick In The Wall
>>45660972I just realized that what you described would be Persona with depressed adults instead of high-functioning autist highschoolers.
>>45661202Omff you are the forst peraon to ever mention that movie. When I talk about I get weird looks lol. Lkek I remember in the movoe blanlets were some sprt of force feild and one kid was sitting on the edge of his bed and gpt pulled under. Main girl saved him. Idk this was a while ago and I smoke to much weed.
>>45661695Wow typo city. Lol sorry y'all didnt think before I posted
>>45661695>I smoke to much weed.Yeah your grammar really shows that.
Are you kids freaking kidding me!?
>>45661548I can see that working, however to me school does the majority of the damage, joining "the real world" just finishes you off, plus to me working is less of a flood of negative emotions and more a whole bunch of grey emotionless numbness.
>>45661147>TFW one of the Adults personal dream creatures he has to fight is a giraffe>"Shit that's right, I did want to be an animal when I was like four."
>>45661742>grey emotionless numbness.So the exact opposite of sweet childhood?
>>45661733Your the one crawling out of people's brains.
>>45661695Poor grammar aside, that actually does raise some interesting ideas. If childhood weaponry works against the abominations, would childhood defense mechanisms be equally effective? Would a security blanket be akin to having on armor? Are the creatures afraid of stuffed animals as if they were actually guarding their holders?
>>45661769Eh, to me the opposite of sweet childhood is... pretty much full-on unironic emoness. The feeling that you are a worthless, useless wretch; that nobody cares about you, and have no reason to; that every that ever loved you, your parents, your siblings, your friends, all hate you.Wow this is getting depressing... um... here have a cute cat or something
>>45661943So the sequel boss would be a ceo, the final game's boss would be a whiny emo.
>>45661250I mean, that's pretty much what WH daemons are: magic and emotions.
>>45662085Not just any emo, the emoest emo that ever emo'd.And whose whines where always correct.
>>45662160And because they are so useless at everything they can't even kill themselves properly.
>>45661147So I would have to fight a version of me that decided to get a sex change?
Is this really a question?
>>45662160>He uses EMOtions for his weapons.>They are very dark and edgy.Nothin' persenlel
>>45660972Base them off that teacher you had that one time that wouldn't let you do anything fun.You know the one. The one that made you go to time out for talking in class. The one that made you worry endlessly about tests. The one that never let you have any fun. The one who droned endlessly about nothing interesting and seemed offended when you didn't pay attention.Thats the one.
>>45662264Yes, and for all intents and purposes, she/he seems a lot happier with his/her life.
Post the weapons you would have your character use.
>>45660972>grey modern setting weaponizes the otherworldly powers of childish happiness to fight extradimensional grimdark horrors.Fucking fund it man, Rambo wielding water guns, rock bands singing miracles into happening, G.I. joke strike forces, give me the entire package, I'm sold.
>>45661915>>45661726Does it ever occur to you that people are on a phpne and propper grammer is time consuming and best left > impliedAnd yeah thats cool as fuck way more than my blanket from a movie comment. and im guna use that on my next campaign lol sprry for the idea theft as I am unoriginal stupid no grammer stoner.,.?.'";:,',,#?/&)^)(*@,",'?
>>45662349So, Alan Rickman?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brDO1mx4SUo
>>45662484I was thinking of him as Snape or Dolores Umbridge, yes.Probably a combination of the 2.
>>45662484Come to think of it, a BBEG like Snape with a bunch of parents as ''lieutenants'' could work quite well.And then your low level enemies are teens and generally older children.
>>45661147>I have to fight the version of me that went on to become a brilliant scientist and help mankind with his many inventions.
>>45662668Come to think of it, can this "versions" infiltrate society? Think about it, that version of yourself that wanted to be a powerful world leader might actually be in charge and is doing unspeakable evils.
>>45662699>This."These", bloody hell I'm not paying attention.
>>45662699The PCs are the source of all the bad stuff because they all had a collective breakdown and for some reason the Dream Monster chooses them to be his vanguards of evil, creates their Dream selves and these Dream selves are taking their place in the world while with the goal of causing havoc one way or another. You wanted to be a president, but got stuck being an office drone? Your Dream self is now acting like a natural leader at your work place and starts garnering a following by word of mouth and become the #1 favored candidate for X party and everybody loves him. Wanted to be a brilliant scientist, but got stuck being an average electrician? Your Dream self invents how to harness fusion energy and basically becomes Tesla with fame and fortune.
>>45662466Nigger, I'm on a phone. Look around you. Scroll up a bit. Scroll down. No one Here seems retarded but you. Get your shit straight or quit posting.
>>45660972> >Toy weapons are very effective against themYou mean Evokers?
>>45661147"Spill it, which one of you fuckers wanted to be Superman!""JUST FUCKING RUN!"
>>45660972>What should the bbeg of the campaign be?As said before, a corrupted Santa Clause, or a corrupted belief on him.It's that, or an incorrectly seduced child. Those are quite the demons too.
>>45660972that is a goddamn awesome idea for a setting
>>45663111Your trips speak the truth.
>>45662464>bards using guitar hero and rock band controllersFucking hell fund it
>>45663305Or just use Mutants and Masterminds and house rule that childish things that use IMAGINATION are the only reason peeps got power.
>>45662999Yeah we should probably nerf the hell out of these elderitch horrors so this doesn't happen.Perhaps what they can become is limited, because if they could do that, they would have done so already. They just have a limited amount of emotion and it's not nearly enough to turn into say, Batman.It's enough to create a scientific genius with a massive IQ, but not Batman.
>>45662398Just finished removing the flow restrictor for higher velocity darts, and filing down the cylinder pin so it fully pops for faster loading.
>>45662317Nah. Although considering where this thread is going we can very easily have something like that be a mini bbeg.>>45664027Here's a idea.Weaker monsters are compromised of fantasy.Strong monsters are compromised of negative energy.Powerful ones are compromised of hope and dreams.
>>45662922Yeah more or less.>>45662562So soldiers storming Hogwarts with nerf guns?
>>45662398operation scorched earth
>>45660972Your fifty foot tall rabidly angry father, sprung from your own darkest childhood memories, drunk as a sailor, in nothing but his underpants, intent on beating you and (even if she is not present he keeps yelling about) your mother to death.
>>45660972Sounds pretty gimmicky and gay.I'm not saying you should kill yourself, but it couldn't hurt to try
>>45665350Your gimmicky and gay.
>>45665364My gimmicky and gay what, anon?
what if the bbeg is just after retrieving a lost toy of his childhood? kinda like manus of the abyss or priscilla?
>>45662398Summons powered by the pc for combat
>>45661915The guy with the sack of stuffed animals is basically a summoner.
>>45663305>tfw you finally get to take the Hardest Metal Know to Man featIt's hard to pull off but damn is it worth it
>>45665467>tfw you and your brother were transformers kidsA regular action figure like a Bionicle, a GI Joe or a Power Ranger would probably be fine for a single summoner, but something big like a Transformer or a Megazord would probably be a huge important ritual that would take entire quests to gather materials for.
>>45665634>A regular action figure like a Bionicle, a GI Joe or a Power Ranger would probably be fine for a single summoner, but something big like a Transformer or a Megazord would probably be a huge important ritual that would take entire quests to gather materials for.Wait if children action figures would be for good summoners, then what about ones associated with negative emotions? You know like 40k minis because grimdarkness of the far future.
>>45662562I don't know about this.KND has a lot in common with this, but they never made the mistake of demonizing parents by making them automatically the bad guys. In fact, most adults were pretty cool guys, and operative's parents tended to be, while embarassing to their kids, truly invested in their kids' safety, wellbeing and future. Evil adults were a minority.In a setting like this, I imagine that parents are the seen-it-all I-remember-when-I-was-your-age old master types who encourage their PC sons and daughters to keep fighting the good fight.Having a PC's child along for the ride would obviously be out of the question, though. The whole setting is about reviving your inner child - having an actual child along would be god mode.
>>45665467>>45665477>SummonsDo the pcs have superpowers now?
>>45665755They already have powers, more or less.
>>45665755Hope is a superpower all it's own, anon.t. Supermanthe way I see it its the same as having nerf guns and supersoakers harm the bad guys: all you have to do is believe. A toy gun will kill a mind demon by shooting pew pew lasers. A teddy bear will come to life, turn real-bear-sized (but still cuddly and soft) and maul a mind demon with his plushy claws.
>>45665749So we can have lolis being the strongest thing in the setting against Elderitch horrors? Cool.
>>45661256And thus /pol/ was born.
>>45665717>then what about ones associated with negative emotions? You know like 40k minis because grimdarkness of the far future.Summoners who work for the mind demons because they have given in to despair>>45665816The PCs are all parents fighting to rescue the all the lolis and shotas in the world.The dream of a single child is basically a nuke to the bad guys. The only reason we know this is because one of the first mind demon attacks stumbled upon an event set up by the Make A Wish Foundation.The invading demons were completely obliterated by a kid with cancer dressed as Batman.
>>45661035Ah, you can't fool me. I don't believe in no 'Sanity Clause'.
>>45661202>that episode of supernatural where it turns out imaginary friends are real, and they're basically therapistsThat shit was too heartwarming
How about this: the more realistic a weapon the toy is, the less powerful it is - because it needs less imagination to function. More imagination equals more power.>>45662398>>45664193>>45665590Something like a cap gun is obviously scrub tier, since it looks like a gun. Nerf guns would be better, but edgy painted ones wouldn't work as well.>>45664103Hulk hands are pretty damn good, since they're a roleplay toy: you have to imagine yourself being someone else.>>45665467Action figures and dolls would be top tier, because you need to have enough imagination to bring an entirely separate being to life, assign a distinct personality and maintain it long enough to do something. But once you've got the momentum, hoo boy.
>>45661035> literally supplying children with weapons to kill negative-thought monstersWorst BBEG ever.
wait a minute I just realized op's campaign is an ernest moviehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jIxJp5_jcE
>>45665916>The PCs are all parents fighting to rescue the all the lolis and shotas in the world.So edgy/depressing toys/whatever would be used by people working for the mind demons (we really need a better name for them)? Perhaps they outright started to kidnap children in mass with hopes of crushing their innocence, using their "servants" to do everything in their power to mentally scar them.
>>45666149>>45665916Also, shouldn't we have child dreams be limited in someway? Because otherwise the mind demons wouldn't even be able to do anything because there's so many damn children.
>>45662398Let's fucking go. couldn't find a pic of a Mobirates with all the keys>>45666193Maybe the children have been locked into some sort of magical stasis. Can't even be accessed.>>45666149>So edgy/depressing toys/whatever would be used by people working for the mind demons (we really need a better name for them)?Pretty much. Anon asked what toys your characters would wield, most have responded with toy guns. That's pretty edgy, though this >>45666128 takes the cake. Damn, Nerf.>Perhaps they outright started to kidnap children in mass with hopes of crushing their innocence, using their "servants" to do everything in their power to mentally scar them.That's probably a bit too dark.
>>45660972Some kid's predator uncle.
>>45666261Perhaps, but what are their goals, to just suppress humanity's childhood? Why did they start showing up just know instead of sometime more dark, like the Great Depression?
>>45666301I think something like a child predator would be a very high level bbeg. Those guys tend to ruin childhood's almost instantly.
>>45665159Jesus Christ man, some of us still want to live here when this is all over you know.
>>45666332Their invasion forms only just got processed. They came up with the plan in the late cretaceous period, but filing it took a long time, then someone forgot to allow for ennui in the budget so they had to refile, then they had to wait for approval (and we all know how Morlaroth the Unrelenting is about approving plans from Sales), then for the actual processing period. Then there was that whole thing where they had to hire a consultant to help with murders and exceutions, guy named Bait Man, I never did like that guy.What's more imagination-draining and soul-sucking than paperwork and bureaucracy?
>>45660972Literally my little pony cast.Corrupted by neckbeards.Ponies. Talking,Rather chanting like CultistsWith occasional creepy laughBleeding eyes, black whites Their footsteps leave black sticky stinking substanceThink Zalgo he who wants behind the wall, and My little pony combined.
>>45666504>What's more imagination-draining and soul-sucking than paperwork and bureaucracy?So we're more or less getting invaded by insect spirits in business suits that also carry brief cases full of eggs?
>>45666052Lego, man. Lego may in fact be God tier since you require even more imagination to create virtually anything from the blocks and give it life and function.
>>45666583More like the Pixes in FOP.
>>45666648Nope.Also we might be seeing super Satanic dubs soon.
>>45666689THEY'VE ALREADY PASSED>45666666
>>45660972>Toy weapons are very effective against them because they are charged with positive emotions...And the fact that no one has challenged this concept proves that nobody in here works with children, works in retail, or works in toys.
>>45665314You wanna talk about it anon?
>>45666807Hush hush anon, this is a happier setting.Perhaps the mind demons are putting children in child labor factories to destroy innocence and dreams?
>>45666807What, you are your friends never played war games?
>>45661147>wanted to become a supervillain that controleld death when I was a kidJesus Christ it would be unstoppable
>>45665916>>then what about ones associated with negative emotions? You know like 40k minis because grimdarkness of the far future.>Summoners who work for the mind demons because they have given in to despairBut then that would mean...OH GOD THEY MIGHT GET CREED!
>>45666875Sure we did. I wouldn't call the capricious child-like love of destruction and violence pure and innocent though. I wouldn't call the sweatshops that most toys were made in very innocent or positive. I wouldn't call the warehouses where they lie for weeks childlike or joyful. I wouldn't call the soul-killing minimum-wage Black-Friday-Death-Causing big box stores they sit in any positive word. And even when they get bought, they're just a bright orange distraction. Something that the rich kid gets because his parents know they can't buy love, but they can supplement it. Something to be played with for a few days, then tossed aside as novelty wears off, batteries die, or parts are lost. Especially when a new distraction comes along
>>45666973That actually gives me a idea, perhaps the mind demons are being brought into existence because they are not only negative emotions, but also crushed dreams? Toys thrown aside in favor of old ones as the positive happiness within them begin to long for the god times again and slowly corrupt. Eventually, it becomes flat out evil and can manifest into a brain monster if it happens in one place for to long.The result of youth being left behind, never to be regained and is thus angered at all else.In other words, innocence going through awkward phase.
>>45666973>Sure we did. I wouldn't call the capricious child-like love of destruction and violence pure and innocent though.Why not? They don't know why it's bad, so isn't that innocence? They're not doing it to hurt people (unless they're bullies, which is a different situation) so isn't that purity?>I wouldn't call the sweatshops that most toys were made in very innocent or positive.I wouldn't call the warehouses where they lie for weeks childlike or joyful.I wouldn't call the soul-killing minimum-wage Black-Friday-Death-Causing big box stores they sit in any positive word. A child neither knows nor cares.>And even when they get bought, they're just a bright orange distraction. Something that the rich kid gets because his parents know they can't buy love, but they can supplement it. Something to be played with for a few days, then tossed aside as novelty wears off, batteries die, or parts are lost. Especially when a new distraction comes alongWow, way to make this bitter. Some of us actually had good parents who didn't buy us things to make us love them because the love was already there, they just wanted us to have fun.But you bring up a good point: maybe the only toys that'll work for the PCs are That One Toy, the one you could always fall back on to be fun. Like Woody and Buzz for Andy.
>>45662848How are these villains though? It's hard to feel angry at "you but successful" unless your a hideously bitter person inside. The nightmare doppelgangers should be the epitome of what your dreams arent. You were gonna grow up to be president? Well your nightmare double is gonna get there by making empty promises, bribing his way into power, and generally using his power to benefit himself at the expense of everyone around him. You were gonna be a scientist? Well your double is a dirty one. He prove or disprove anything for a price. He vivisects puppies and kittens to figure out his to make a better lipstick. The only way to stop these nightmares is to become the best version of you you always wanted to be. You run against the nightmare president and beat his dirty politics with truth and honesty. Pretty much Parks and Rec
>>45667185Nightmare double of a pro athlete is easy: juicer and general cheater. Even worse, he cheats to lose just so he can get that extra bribe money.What's the nightmare double of the kid who wanted to be an astronaut? Or a musician?
>>45667185If all else fails, AFFIX BAYONETS!>>45662398It's a good job mate.
>>45667257Maybe we should give these "nightmares" certain abilities in combat? Such as the musician making people go deaf with his loud music, or convincing them to rebel with his hypnotic melodies.One breed for combat, another breed for infiltration.
>>45667145...So it sounds like the Space Marines can fight off these demons, because their Hatred Is Pure, They Know No Fear, and Their Faith Is Unshakable
>>45667325>the evil musician corrupts the kids with his rock and roll devil worship musicNo fucking thanks>>45667344Well 40k is a setting for edgy children.
>>45662398This beauty right here.
>>45667398>>45667280If not either of those, then this.
>>45667358Doesn't have to be rock and roll stuff, maybe just have him use music that make people go deaf. Maybe not even have the harm be in the sound, but make it a music mage.
>>45661147Wow, what a frightening paleontologist who can't pronounce "paleontologist"
>>45667185>evil version of my childhood dreams is a corrupt preacherThis would actually be pretty cool.
>>45666973We found our first mid-tier boss
>>45667748To be fair, most of 4chan would be a midtier boss.
>>45666973>tfw you still have quite a few toys that you've had since you were a child and you're in your late 20's nowDo you even appreciate, anon? Fuck mang, got a stuffed animal from when I was four, still.
>>456677834chan itself would be a powerful network with potential for kids to cooperate all over the world. Currently it is populated by deceivers and hate beasts bent only on forming dependent relationships of depression and suffering. Reddit would be false prophets who think their network is the One True network and use peer pressure to get their way. Tumblr would be a network of paranoids and egoists powered by their soulless followers who can only think and do what they are told to do.
>>45667889So Feminazis are actually just more mind demons?
>>45667889So would the ultimate BBEG be some amalgamation fusion shenanigans of moot whoever runs rediit and tumblr, Zuckerberg and Tom?Would that guy from Match.com who got cucked by his own website be a mid-boss?We need to establish this.
>>45667924>Feminazis are mind demons....Duh.
>>45667889>Currently it is populated by deceivers and hate beasts bent only on forming dependent relationships of depression and suffering.Not everyone is /pol/ and /r9k/. That description doesn't even fit /b/.
>>45660972Q. What happens if you genuinely enjoy the trolling, frustration, and umadbros? What happens if you laugh when things are terrible, shitty, and collapse in on themselves?Does that still summon a horrible abomination?Or does that emit an aura that deals damage to abominations, since it turns their negativity into positivity?
>>45666973you seem like you were either one of those rich kids or was jealous of them because at least they had stuff.Would you like a hug anon? This one's on me.
>>45660972... Jimmy Savile?
>>45668019Sounds more like he's a parent who's bitter at their child for not appreciating gifts.
>>45668008We just don't know.
>>45668008You become some being caught between two worlds yet accepted by neither.
>>45668115Wait what? I thought mind demons clawed out of peoples mind.Or do people just start exploding into assholes?
>>45668008The abominations are friendly to you.You do not gain or lose any special powers, but you can safely interact with the abominations without either of you harming the other.
>>45668115Well I'm going to make a NEW world! With ironic topkeks! and griefing montages! and every day is like E3 2013! and femdom!>what does femdom have to do with liking trolling, irony, and shittinessNothing! But I want my world to have femdom.
>>45668181>what does femdom have to do with liking trolling, irony, and shittiness>Nothing! But I want my world to have femdom.The daily struggle.
>>45667990we're talking about the nightmare version of 4chan here, I think it being exclusively /pol+/r9k is pretty accurate

>>45665916That implies that vidya console headsets(with microphone) are mind control implements; imagine every trash-talking brat with an Xbox controller is now the enemy... and Never. Shuts. UP. You can't kill him, because he's under mind control and a kid; taking the headset off works... but the kid wants to put it back on and feel badass again. And the monsters know where the headsets are. ...This is horrifying.

>>45665314As much as I like giant bossfights, there will inevitably be someone who has that as a fetish, and say "oh gee I sure hope he doesn't step on me with his smelly feets :3 or swallow me whole and keep me in his belly :3c or fart on me before shoving me up his ass :3c~ that would be SOO embarassing lol!"
>>45668437That's why you throw them the fuck out of your house.
>>45667889>Tumblr would be a network of paranoids and egoists powered by their soulless followers who can only think and do what they are told to do.Tumblr is 90% porn and shitposting, senpai.Pretty much same as 4chan.But tumblr has SocJus and 4chan has /pol/.
>>45668336Oh yeah my school banned pokems tooWe still played the fuck out of pokems.
>>45668414Wouldn't work with this setting.He'd be too full of positive emotion.While I do like the whole "God is a bored retard with muh feelz issues and extremist opinions that really don't work in reality" trope, you can't make it apply here.
>>45668437So adjust it so that their little whizzard doesn't pop up. If they try to insist on entering the magical realm, tell them no and kick them out. Standard operating procedure.
>>45666123You think a corrupted Santa would leave toys?Man, he probably doesn't even leave coal, he just shits in your stocking and bangs your mum while your dog watches and e-mails you the pictures.Probably has the face of the step-dad you hated most.
>>45668486>That's why you throw them the fuck out of your house.As much as I'd like to do that, it's inevitable that you're gonna run into someone's magical realm if you're playing with humanoids.Unless you are playing something deep abstract - like you're all Cubes of hitpoints fighting other Cubes of hitpoints and your equipment is literally "Does between 1 and 6 damage" given form.Put in a woman, someone is gonna try to waifu her. Guaranteed. Doesn't matter if she's a loli or a granny or a controlling bitch or a helpless maiden or a kind nun or an evil murderess, someone is going to waifu her, and then spend 2 sessions asking you to describe her shoes and her footwear.
>>45660972Someone who thinks this is a better world than ours, because it forces people to be happy to live, and kills off people who have extremely strong negative emotions.Basically, he thinks that the world will eventually be filled with happy, law-abiding citizens who love each other constantly because that's the only way society will ever be able to recover and advance.He is then devoured by the manifestation of his repressed hatred and fear of humanity, who turns into a mighty boogeyman insisting that this is the way things have to be.
>>45668658how and why is my dog emailing me pictures of my mom being fucked by Santa?
>>45668658My childhood dream is now to become this corrupted Santa.>no underage on 4chI'm 29>but you can't change your childhood dreamsYes I bloody well can. I am going to retcon ALL of my childhood so that I have wanted to be this evil santa who shits in stockings, bangs ur mum, gives your dog drugs to make it hyper-energetic, sends you the pictures, and replaces all your gift cards with "ur a faget".
>>45666301>>45666365Added bonus of having everyone at the table unconditionally despise the villain on principle. Don't have to worry about a player being a bad guy apologist or possibly betraying the party. If you do, you might want to have a talk with that player.For all the people advocating corrupt Santa Claus: I want him to be played by Billy Bob Thornton.
>>45668734>>45661147>The party encounters their doubles made of regret of what they couldn't become>Josef Mengele>A loli futanari catgirl>Asshole Santa>A bulbasaur>An ordinary man, but he has a girlfriend and gets along with his family"Man y'all childhoods were bullshit."
>>45668792>>45666301You never know tho.What if you have a supply of those doujins that show how molestation turns into mutual love and a positive experience?
>>45668435What about any of Indy's antagonists?
>>45668658Wait wait wait, does the dog email you the pictures or the Santa?Because now we have an evil dog on the loose.
>>45668558The difference is everyone knwos who's shitposting.
>>45668888Dude no, stop just stop.Nice quads tho.
>>45668605Let me get a better idea of what I'm trying to get across>The villain is a 12 year old CoD player
>>45666973>>45667051I like the idea of the tossed-aside and neglected toys being the corrupted ones. Maybe that's why the army sort of failed and it's up to the PCs? They tried to contract the 'best' and most shiny producers in China but there was no love or care in those, so they were weak.Toys that were either handmade with care or toys that spent their time through someone's entire childhood (you know, the one you always came back to) are the most powerful. Toys that are both are things of legend. Also good reason why you can't just mass produce monster-killers for an easy way out of the crisis.Granted, a mass-produced toy can still be strong, it just has to have had a lot of childhood happiness poured into it over a long period of time (which doesn't often happen because they're prone to breaking).
>>45668936>turning in a circle and firing your weapon without aiming does extra damage to him>but if you carefully aim through a scope before firing, it just makes him stronger>>45668926Dude yes! Proceed with gusto!There's gonna be a least one kid who had a crush on their stepdad and were upset that they never got molested, and spawned some mind demon made of chastity, authority, an unbearable unrelievable tension, and "cannot have".
>>45660972Does that mean sex toys deal lots of damage to the monsters too?Because this is SO going into a Maid campaign if true.
>>45667832Same here. I got a OLD Bugs Bunny stuffed animal a week after I was born. Still got it. Had to re-sew parts of it back on despite the thing seriously being built to last.
>>45669061I'm not sure if sexual pleasure would even count.
>>45669125Don't care."Demons made of ruined imagination and lack of happiness attack, sex toys are super effective against them, maids with high stress spontaneously generate their own demons made of pent-up frustration" is going inna campaign now.
>>45668703>>45668915Either, both, sure thing. Focus less on the grammar and more on making either the most hated version of Santa or getting an evil dog sidekick for him in on the deal.Or both.
What if I was a poor kid who relied in his imagination to turn regular objects in to toys?
>>45669496Still works, it just needs positive emotions in it.
>>45668437>>45668679you guys play in some weird groups
>>45664417>>45664027>>45662999>>45662668I'm going to use Dreams as a placeholder for now.Dreams that were poorly thought out are mercurial, quickly changing form and powers, but are fragile as concepts. Using mundane tools related to their root cripples them. ie. whack the mad scientist with tongs, put on a cape and punch out supermanDreams based upon hopes are the strongest when faced alone, but the support of allies and the use of environment can tip the scales.Dreams built upon cursing the world are fought with toys filled with positive emotions. But if you are so much as apathetic from constant fighting, you will find that maybe bringing a gun would have helped.
>>45669496Then you get access to the most powerful toy of all...The Cardboard Box.
>>45669496Well every kid does that eventually. Your imagination score would just need to be much higher to reflect that it was your only use of it>>45669611>it's a "Calvin pulls out the cardboard box" strip
>>45661147>A monster that resembles the adult your childhood you thought they would become.
>>45661147So Doctor Wily.
>>45669496I'm picturing a few 'classes' that don't rely on having a lot of actual possessions.Something like "Improvised Toy Master" or "Imaginary Friend". I also would like to see a caster type that uses sigils inscribed with chalk and it's basically just shit like tic-tac-toe or hopscotch. Low-budget heroes.
What should we call this setting anyway?
This would be a great adventure on table top. Force the players to give their characters a childhood of some sort
>>45669890Uncle Jerry's Basement.
>>45660972Does this mean I can use my ribbon staff as a weapon?
>>45670484Slice and dice with monofilament ribbon at range is a go.
>>45670375Not sure that counts as a toy. That's a performance art thing, right?
>>45670609Little girls have had that as a toy for years, even if it is also used as performance art and gymnastic equipment. Besides, the way I rigged the thing makes it all the more whimsical and fun. One window blinds rod + 1 yard nylon cording + plastic tube for weight purposes + around 1 yard of rainbow colored ribbon = happy fun time
>>45670898This right here is the shit that will help us defeat the monsters.Keep up the good work, soldier.
>>45671011Toycticool Engineer prepped and ready for fun and fighting.
>>45670375>>45670510>>45670898>>45671011>>45671081Took a picture as reference.Thought of two ways to make it fun, using it to slice and dice the monsters or as a way to write spells into being.
>>45660972Fuckin' swatting monsters to death with a badminton racket, hell yeah.Also, fuckin' flying axe kicks of death and destrucion with heelees and cheap rollerblades.AND MOTHERFUCKING PAPER-PLATE FRISBEES OF SLICEY-DICEY ANNIHILATION! And, of course, the vibrator of justice. Can't forget that.
>>45661035Is this from a webcomic?
wait so if it's just childish glee that does it, why cant we just give little kids those playskool flash lights and call it a dayalthough i think the most effective toy might actually be one of these bastardsjust turn it on, and shove the microphone into the speaker for hours of dog and parent bothering fun
COME WITH ME IF YOU WANT TO LIVE
>>45661943>>45661742>>45661548You fuckers are depressing the shit out of me.
>>45666973Well, maybe toys enjoyed only for their flash and color over childhood innocence and fun are corrupting-yet-powerful tools?
>>45662398>>45664103>>45665159>>45665467>>45666261>>45666972>>45667280>>45667398You spoiled little shits! When i was a kid all we had were sticks! Sticks used a launching platform for overstretched rubber bands.It stings like a bitch but we didn't cry like bitches. My stick was shaped like a rifle. I loved that stick, till i used it to poke a dead frog and threw it away.
>>45667257Nightmare Musician is exactly what every soccer mom from the 80s and 90s thought of Death Metal bands: Subliminal messages in albums, intentional breaking down of morals, corruption and selling out, etc etc.Nightmare Astronaut pushes people's buttons and manipulates the system to get HIMSELF in charge of critical and expensive missions ahead of everyone else. He names anything discovered after him and him alone, and a danger to himself and others... and to the continued funding for the space programs should there be a catastrophic failure.
>>45672244That actually would be neat: a simple stick is more potent than any fancy flashing toy if the person wielding it is attached enough to it and thus invests more of his imagination in it.
At first when the abominations come, the hero of the story is distraught.He has no idea what to do.Starts fighting back with some real weapons.Eventually someone helps him out and explains how he needs to use toy weapons in conjunction with his imagination to defeat the monsters.He says it's bullshit, but fine and starts fighting.As the story progresses, the party wields crappy and simpler weapons.At the final battle, the hero tosses aside his weapon (which at this point is just a stick) and uses pure imagination to defeat the BBEG
>>45666052Then shooting with your fingers is the strongest weapon.NERF MONK NAO
>>45661147>a man, straight-backed and grim-faced, steps calmly into the shadows>his stride is steady and his jaw is set, his trained eyes staring down the sights of his weapon>there is only darkness here, with but the tapestry of stars above to give him any inkling of familiarity or direction>but from above, a figure, descending slowly>he trains his barrel for it's skull but stops when he sees its mirrored visor>the astronaut lands softly in front of him, the NASA patch resting proudly on the suit>memories flood into his mind's eye, the thousand adventures he had made and lived so long ago>a voice crackles from within the white from>"Hey, Champ. How've been keeping up?">the visor lifts for just a moment, and the man sees a new face, but one that he knows>kind, soft, bright-eyed and smiling>"where have you been all these years? You didn't forget about me, didja?">Weakness in the knees, first. Then the choking, breathless sobs of a man who knows himself.
>>45665159Holy fuck anon, the real monster is man
>>45672363In that case the most potent weapon would be the limitless childish imagination.
>>45665159>Fighting negative emotional abominations with giant sacks of legosAnon thats cheating, you are basically taking every weapon and then some.>Because of the wonky magic from the negative emotions being animated, anything you build with the legos will become animated to fight for you, including the lego men>March against nightmares with an army of yellow plastic soldiers of joy
>>45662398>>45665467TO ARMS MEN, IT'S TIME TO UNLEASH HELL ON THESE MONSTERSBAD COMPANY
>>45668311the objective isn't to catch it, it's to get it out of the way, presumably you back up and lead it off the narrow bit of the path before you put it back out
>>45662398The strongest and most dependable companion of course, always there when I needed them
>>45666301>Your party has been through hell and back, fighting giant horrifying dinosaurs, monstrous clowns and cowboys, even a nightmarish astronaut accompanied by his gremlin like aliens minions, but so far only one part member hasn't had his deepest, darkest fears and greatest dreams exposed and twisted>Suddenly a foreboding feeling falls upon the team, their hands shaking as they ready their nerf guns as a pitch blackness descends upon the group>Like a door opening up, a figure steps out into thin air, unlike the other nightmarish things, it is a simple man, his features slightly deformed, like a haze of smoke and ash, and looking a bit more exaggerated, like a shadow across pavement, but nothing can hide the pure contempt, hate and disdain in his eyes, as if what he is looking at is the most vile existence on the face of the planet. You all realize he is staring right at your party member>He looks back, like a timid dog who just knocked over a china cabinet, his body shaking so violently he can't even hold his foam sword anymore. His voice comes out like a chattering machine, so overcome with terror he can barely squeeze out the words>"D...Dad...?"
>>45672472That's the idea. But don't forget that the sleep of reason produces monsters.
>>45672701>>45672363>>45669848>The highest class Imagination users don't even need the toys or games, they can project their imagination onto objects, or even just create things from thin air from their mindYou fiends, don't think you can stand against me anymore [OUT OF THE BOX]!!
>Go through a hospital on your parties way to the toy store to restock on weapons>Have to face on the massive army of broken dreams and nightmares of children who are terminally ill and can never leave the hospital, as well as elderly or sick patients who are dying without realizing their dreams
>>45661147Oh my god. This is just cruel. I think people would have to roll for sanity loss just as they kill the monsthers-their dreams. Heck, do you guys think this could work on CoC, with a little bit of homebrew added to it?
>>45660972Kind of reminds me of Earth 12 from Broken Rooms. I can't remember if there was something extra nasty BBEG wise though.
>>45668008You become the generic spellcaster that uses the same thing the bad guys uses but "or good purposes.
>>45672427>Hero cornered by multiple entities"What will you do now, with no weapons of any kind you are powerless against us">...>"Bang"
You'll cowards don't even pet cats.
So what would the classes be? I was thinking something like this.> Toy Soldier: Uses toy weapons, such as Nerf Guns or toy swords, hammers, etc.>Imagimancer: Uses Imagination to weave spells and special powers into being>Lego Engineer: Uses Legos to build some really cool shit and bring it to life for a shot time>Summoner (Lame name I know) Uses Imagination to call upon the powers of Action Figures, Imaginary Friends, etc.
>>45674501There should also be a guy that transforms into something like power rangers
>>45674543I figured that could be part of the Imagimancer's possible powers.
>>45665159That's no weapon, that's the final boss!
>>45660972Night Man (ah ah ah)
>>45665159Do you salt your entire field to stop a single weed from sprouting?
>>45661147So I'll have to fight a cyborg? Well fuck.
>>45661238Yeah. And it fires missles that make you suicidal.
>>45666973I can hug you if you want, anon. Bitterness causes nothing but anger for everyone.
>>45672244In my day, we didn't have sticks. We used our own hands for rubber band slingshots.
>>45674549>>45674543Not "like" Power Rangers. Power Rangers. Morphers are standard issue for every PR toyline
>>45674501Summoner sounds more like an Imagimancer subclassNow I need to come up with subclasses for each.
>>45676005Toy Knight. More or less a Shadowrun Street Samurai.Duelist:CARD GAMES!
>>45676033>CARD GAMES>ON MOTORCYCLES?
>>45676005Ok, so, classes and archetype time!>Toy Soldier>>Ninja: Sneeky beeki who uses blades like Nerf Swords>>Cowboy: Uses foam revolvers and pistols>>Soldier: Specializes in Rifles and heavy foam Guns and explosives>Imagimancer: >>Wizard: Creates spells and effects from Imagination>>Summoner: Calls upon the powers of Action figures, stuffed animals and the like to aid them>Lego Engineer>>Imagineer: Creates marvelous, Ork tech like inventions out of bricks and brings them to life>>Secret Agent: Creates all sorts of gadgets and things to use (Think KND 2x4 tech)Thoughts?
>>45676291>Still no cat classFor shame.
>>45676299Ninja could be fluffed as a cat class for your character.
>>45672451sounds kinda like a less overtly sinister of Hachimaki's self-doubt from Planetes
>>45676291Sounds good to me, summoner for life
>>45676291You forgot >>45665159 and >>45676192.Maybe have a 'structured' duelist that follows the rules of the card game (to some extent) and a crazier one that throws down whatever and imitates the cartoon.Or a sliding scale; wizard-sorcerer-wild mage in decreasing structuredness.
>>45676291>>45676472Ok, we can do that.>>Wild Mage (Imgaimancer): Uses wild bursts of Imagination power, usually centered around things like card games or things like green army men, using their power in sometimes uncontrollable bursts
>>45676291What about Beyblades?
>>45676507That could fall under Wild Mage or possibly Imagineer/Secret Agent
>>45676592Ex-fucking-actly my nigga
>>45676291It needs a berserker class...Tantrumancer: throws a fit to disrupt and weaken enemies that have an authority role(fathers, mothers, cops, bosses.)Pure roleplay class.
>>45676610I like it>>Beserker (Toy Soldier): Uses large foam weapons like battleaxes and maces for furious attacks at the cost of protection. Calls upon the power of the Tantrum for extra damage.
>>45676657>6657.It's coming again isn't it?
>>45676291What about /v/ stuff? Can't that count as a toy?
>>45676688Devil trips? I guess.Devil trips gonna kick off this whole mind monster apocalypse, isn't it?
>>45676291>Race Driver: Able to turn anything they sit on into a race car and gains bonuses while driving said car>President/Rock Star: Able to inspire others with their presence. President buffs defensive skills and encourages others, Rock Star buffs aggressive abilities and energizes allies (read: heals)
>>45676720Ok, file under Cool Kid class unless there is a better name for the social class archetypes
>>45672125They're weak compared to those ribbon staffs and a sack of stuffed toys and legos, sorry. Go away /k/
>>45676740I feel like "cool kid" and others should act as something of a background that gives them traits, bonuses and whatnot
>Tfw, one of my threads actually turned out very good.Feels good man.
>>45676784That's why they would be good low level weapons. Turning simple things into effective toys would only be possible with high Imagination. Like a stick into an awesome rifle.
>>45676791We need a name for the overall social archetypes first tho. Cool kid could be a trait, sure, but then what would we name the social classes? >>45676803Thanks for the good topic OP. You are not a faggot today.
Maybe we can have the most depressing countries like third world countries be completely overran with mind demons?
You're all neglecting one, very important toy, one that's been part of /tg/ from the outset, the thing that set all of us on this path.The book.How many hours have you spent reading, do you think? How many times have you read Dr. Seuss's books, how much love and kindness have you poured into them? As you grew, whose adventures did you follow, and which books did you aspire to read so you wouldn't have to wait for Dad to read you to sleep? Which heroes patrolled your dreams, and which tales did you take on with wooden sword and trash-can-lid shield? How many villains did you vanquish in your mind, fighting alongside the hero?The Libriomancer is a powerful warrior, capable of channeling the belief of hundreds that the story is real somewhere into a physical form. In a unique twist, his powers come not from his own imagination (although that plays no small part), but in the belief of hundreds that the hero is here.
>>45676862I don't know, aren't cliques high school stuff? We are talking about being kids again. Maybe Popular could be the trait, while Cool Kid is the class?>>45676876Holy crap. This is fucking great anon.
>>45676837impossiblethose are the only ones with veteran child soldiers
>>45676930This is about innocence and hope, things in the third world is pretty fucked. Not to mention being a child soldier tends to fuck up your childhood.
>>45676927It's attributed to highschools, but clique on itself just means a group or class of people who congregate while technically isolating themselves from other groups and create their own social standards.
>>45676969Third world countries would have some especially powerful Nightmares then, likely more visceral and bloodthirsty. First world countries would have powerful Nightmares that would be more insidious, like the lying cheating President-you that comes into existence.
>>45676984I feel like kids, especially when younger, don't do that. I would just go up to people I didn't know in kindergarten and just ask if they wanted to play with me. The Cool Kid would be someone that everyone wanted to play with.
>>45662999>Injustice happens We ded
>>45676984>It's attributed to highschools, but clique on itself just means a group or class of people who congregate while technically isolating themselves from other groups and create their own social standards.No, a clique is really just any social group of people, or group of similar objects in a more general sense. In graph theory, for example, a clique is a set of vertices that are all connected to one another.
Do you have to actively want to hurt the demon in order to hurt it?
>>45677072>Injustice, horrors among us.>>45677093They're demons anon, they want to eat your face. Most of them anyway, there might be one that's "good" due to some kid's dream/wish. A horror that was spawned by a dream for their to be peace between the two races. That turns out to be just as bad as any other dream horror.
>>45677227I feel like Hugs would be a healing power.I like the others.Imagination: One of your most important stats. Determines effectiveness of special powers for Imagimancer.Spunk: How strong your personality is. Important for Wild Mages and Cool Kids.Nostalgia: Your connection to your childhood. Health and major stat for Toy Soldiers.Spoiled could be a negative trait. Courage: How well you stand up to the Nightmares. Also important for Toy Soldiers. Damage soak stat?
>>45677227>>45677286imho Imagination is too important for "just" a special power of the Imaginamancer. It should be like luck- a point in Imagination grants a minor bonus to every stat/roll
>>45677322Or it could be like POW in CoC, important to everyone, but a bit more important for some characters than others. An example is that a Toy Soldier doesn't need to Imagine his/her weapons, as Nerf Guns are pretty straightforward. An Imagimancer however, needs to be able to visualize what is going to happen and believe it will happen.
>>45677155Wait I just realized, what about wet dreams? How would they work?
>>45677662Why. Why did you have to open the door to that?If I had to say, they probably are like Succubi/Incubi, draining your Nostalgia by dragging you from your inner childhood to your adulthood.
>>45676472>Maybe have a 'structured' duelist that follows the rules of the card game (to some extent) and a crazier one that throws down whatever and imitates the cartoon.I hate that this is still a meme. I mean, it's almost entirely exclusive to Duelist Kingdom, and the card game didn't even exist in the real world yet, so there literally no rules to work from.
>>45677701So that one magical realm guy? Oh boy.Also here comes some nice dubs, probably.
>>45677072There's probably a limit on how strong Nightmares can be based on how core that dream was to that person.Kid that wanted to be Superman after watching a movie? Not too tough.Kid from a broken home that basically taught himself morality by reading Superman comics from the dusty recesses of a library? SHIT'S FUCKED.>>45677322I dunno if it should be a "Bonus" kinda stat. Maybe more of a sliding scale? Like, having TOO HIGH an Imagination stat can bring benefits and consequences.Bear with me here.Obviously having low-Imagination can make it hard to use even something like a Nerf gun, but too high? You start to lose touch, start to retreat into "your own little world". That sort of thing.Shouldn't be something that hurts at moderate levels of Imagination, but you get the idea.>>45677662Shh, that's puberty stuff. By then most Kids have started shunning toys in the name of "that's for little kids!".
>>45677774>Shh, that's puberty stuff. By then most Kids have started shunning toys in the name of "that's for little kids!".But that's the point. Bring out certain fantasies so you ignore more important ones.
>>45677769Kids don't care about that. They just want to look cool anon.>>45677774This is a good idea. Higher Imagination leads to you being more like the hermit wizard, not wanting to interact with others in lieu of talking to Imaginary Friends. And it could make you more susceptible to damage, unless you protect yourself with a shielding charm or power of some sort>>45677798That's what I was trying to get at with the Nostalgia Drain.
>>45661742>plus to me working is less of a flood of negative emotions and more a whole bunch of grey emotionless numbness.>Not finding a job you love doingCome on, it's not like school where you're forced by the state to take classes you don't enjoy with awful people you hate. There's no excuse for not finding a job that you actually like doing and take pride in.
>>45677369>>45677871So high Imagination gives you autism?
Since we are getting close to the bump limit, anyone want to archive this thread on suptg? I am still a bit of a newfag and have no clue how to.
>>45661742>working in an office>doing a job you don't want to doWHY>>45678103BUT DURING THE STONE AGE
>>45678103No desu, High Imagination would be like a kid who has an overactive Imagination and thinks that tree branches tapping the window are monsters or who are always doodling in notebooks in school rather than taking notes.
>>45678105Maybe we can make a new thread while we find out how to archive this one?

Ok, new thread is up.>>45678917
