Hey everyone! Let's talk about one of the better settings that /tg/ has come up with! CATastrophe, the water-logged land of diving, beaches, boats, sunbathing, and so on and so forth. I'll start with a relevant image dump and then make a small announcement when I'm done. On the other hand, if any of you have similar art to contribute, or stories about any games you had in the CATastrophe setting, or if you were one of the originators of the idea, post here!
>>57244598>one of the better settings that /tg/ has come up with!It's literally just catgirls and beaches...
>>57244623You say that as though that's a bad thing. Catgirls and beaches don't necessarily have to be boring!
Consider this an art dump if you want.Also, I realize I should've probably included a link to the CATastrophe 1d4chan page:https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Setting:CATastrophe
Looks like it could be a cool setting if it wern't just a half-assed excuse for fur shit in swimsuits.Too bad it's exactly that.
>>57244758Son, do you need to get SCHOOL'd?
>>57244758>furshitbut that's wrong.Also, primary points of the setting are adventures on the high sea, buckling the swashes and diving into flooded high-tech ruins to punch robots in the face.In other words Waterworld, but without all the suck and with catgirls as high (as fuck) concept.
>>57244833Well, to be fair, Waterworld was okay. Like, it wasn't that great, but it had some cool ideas. Plus the visuals were kinda groovy as well. Besides, it's nice to see post-apocalyptica as an endless blue rather than an endless desert, no? With catgirls, no less.
And now for the little announcement:I decided to work on an nWoD conversion for CATastrophe. Actually, it would be more correct that I am using the Storyteller system instead, as CATastrophe doesn't mesh will with the ideas of the World of Darkness. The reason why I am doing this is that FATE is an awful system IMO, and that CATastrophe would benefit from a) a resurgence of interest, and b) a better system so that people can play it.The link will be at the end of the post. I have enabled commenting, so go ahead and post comments and critiques or whatever! I will most likely at least read them, if not necessarily follow them. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Mc833c64gzJKW5-qRFnFB-IZZ16Lw0OGsScnMY4Ktok/edit?usp=sharing
>>57244926One more picture!
>>57244833What monster would do that, just go on the Internet and tell lies?>>57244926What splat would this be exactly? We already have FATE, d20 system, TAIL, there's also some dude working on Ryuutama adaptation...Not to discourage or anything, this is really cool, it's just funny how this is /tg/'s most mechanically covered project since Dungeons: the dragoning.
>>57244984first meant for >>57244758also, let's not forget the often forgotten heroes, the dudes of Eternal Blue, forever struggling with lack of character portraits.(but seriously, if anyone has any and they're not overly trap-ish, please share)
>>57244984Well, when I say splat, that's technically wrong. It's not gonna be called something like Catastrophe: the Survivening. But it does have 5 "races," 5 "classes," a Morality metric (called Adventure)... y'know what. Let me post the common terms glossary, as that might clear some stuff up.

>>57244598I'm running a PF E6 game with all 4 players playing Catfolk in an Asian setting.It's pretty much this in a different time.
>>57245043>MagicEeeeeh, i'm on the fence about that (and in original threads i was the one to suggest magic reappearing, funnily enough). CATastrophe just doesn't go with supernatural well enough. Something like nanomachines (son) would be fine, and with enough technobabble you could justify anything "magical" with them.
>>57245072And here's the best part, the Magic part is going to be entirely optional. It's a module that you can cut out of the game and it won't suffer for it.Though, I am curious to hear any more stories from the original threads.
What kind of "plots" do you even play in a setting like this? It honestly looks like a world where everyone is happy and surviving fine already. There doesn't really appear to be a need to save anyone, no real survival element, no real threats to the world... it's post apocalypse with nothing that makes post-apocalypse settings interesting or engaging.
>>57245163underwater dungeon crawling is my first thought.
>>57245163And that's why I'm adapting a more "high-seas adventure" feel to it. Thing more like Age of Sail. There's pirates and shit! Communities threatened by marauding raiders! Deep One kidnapping children going to school! An underwater volcano eruption thrust out a new landmass with a bunch of Earless ruins on it, watched over by Oldguard. Honestly, where there's a will, there's a way. No RPG really makes sense, because adventuring doesn't make sense in general.
>>57245182Yeah, but they're not "dungeons"... they're just ruins of old human cities. What are you seeking out? Food? Medicine? Weapons? Again, this doesn't seem like the kind of setting with gritty post-apocalypse survival where a bottle of anti-biotics is worth killing someone over. And what traps are you gonna face in the "dungeon"? What "enemies". Thy're not DnD dungeons. They're empty buildings. I dunno, maybe I'm just uncreative but I can't wrap my head around how to make any kind of plot out of this. The world is cool and all, but there's just no reason to "adventure" in it.
>>57245085Well, all threads are archived on 1d4, but that's a lot of sh... stuff to wade through. Holy wars about what should and should not be in the setting, The Great Catboy Dispute Of 20XX, HFY fags demanding to be taken seriously...Good times, good times.Anyway, the way i envisioned magic was more subtle, something between japanese tsukumogami myth (discarded items gaining sentience) and Glorantha spirit quest stuff. With discarded items there was a great deal of ambiguity - sure, humans were advanced so it's not unusual that even old coffee machine has its own AI, but... is that a mecha-broom or is it just moving on its own? There aren't any mechanical details, visible, at least.Spirit quests were designed as a way to visit the past by reaching to "memory" of old objects and possibly finding answers to why humans disappeared. This might be done either through special devices recovered from earless ruins OR through burning the sacred herbs. The result is Inception - like journey on even more drugs (sometimes literally), a surrealistic and S Y M B O L I C insight into the past of the planet.I scrapped it because it didn't mesh too well with the overall feel of the setting, so now CATastrophe (at least mine version) is soft sci-fi only.
>>57245203On that note, I am introducing three major types of antagonists:Sea Beasts and Oldguard. That's bog standard. Killer robots and giant monsters that guard interesting places.Ferals. Inheritors gone BAD. Pirates, slavers, raiders, infiltrators, and so on. Can be brutes and overt, or subtle and conniving. Generally, they'll have similar training to the PCs/Crew. Sometimes they'll even have their own Settlements. Deep Ones. Yeah, from Lovecraft. Cthulhu is not actually a thing and turned out to be a myth. And because the various Inheritors are no longer humans, the Deep Ones are faced with a demographic crisis - they can no longer breed. So, in that case, why DO they still kidnap Inheritors? Why do they also go down into Earless ruins? Why do they still raise their monoliths and then tear them down the next night? These guys are supposed to be weird and mysterious, though under some circumstances, they could be reasoned with.
>>57245163It's good for that "heartwarming roleplaying" thing that you never see in western games i guess. Kinda like:>The appeal, the catharsis of completing a story in Golden Sky Stories is that you work towards fnding a way to make people happy. And it should be possible to make everyone happy. >What you gain from telling such small stories is intimacy. Your henge, and the handful of people they meet, can all become good friends, and that’s the main thing you’re there to do>There’s no need to put henge into desperate situations where they have to fght for everything they hold dear. That’s some other game. You don’t need a “conﬂict” per se, so much as a “wrinkle” that the henge can help straighten out. >While the henge can solve problems, a lot of the time what they do is more to nudge people in the right direction and make things work out better and sooner.
>>57245219Hmm. I have it done in a way that is more similar to a whole bunch of sci-fi stories I have read. The magic never really left, but it was inacessible due to the low mana levels. However, the massive dying off of humans caused the available mana to surge, meaning that some people with the mind to study it, can learn it. I based it off of Koldunic Magic from oWoD, because I felt that elemental magic would be a nice fit for the more primal feeling of CATastrophe. I also feel that while it can be powerful, a lone mage is only as powerful as a ship cannon. Furthermore, all the magic abilities have some equivalent in the base classes or ship mechanics. So I feel like it's fairly balanced. Honestly, I can just cross of the word "magic" and write "psychic elementalism" and it would end up being the same thing. Or just remove it altogether, and there won't be much missing.
>>57245291I dunno, my players felt VERY fulfilled when we finished a 2 years PF-then-5e pony campaign. They saved the world, managed to save most of their NPC friends, achieved a lot of personal goals. So it was a mix of both big stuff success and little stuff success. I agree that not everything needs to be "high stakes save the world" kind of thing, but at the same time, if the stakes are too low, or the outcome is minor, then why do anything?Which is why the Morality stat of Adventure exists. Keep doing boring shit, and you fade into the background, your Legend points don't do as much, and eventually you become so boring that you fade into the background completely, becoming an NPC.
>>57245314I am so glad the poster number went up with this post...
>>57245291I mean... I guess, but that honestly just sounds like an episode of a children's cartoon, in a world where NPCs are utterly incapable of solving basic problems on their own like functional adults. I don't see the appeal. I like the plot arc of regular people rising up to meet serious challenges... but if the challenges are "oh, we're having a bad day", what's the fucking point? It's not "heartwarming" or "intimate", it's shallow and forgettable. I could hop on a chatroom on Deviantart if I wanted to play slice-of-life house-simulator with catgirls, or watch one of the million slice-of-life anime that exist. Just because it's cute to watch doesn't mean it's compelling to play though.
>>57245207>ruins of old human citiesHigh-tech ruins, full of unmaintained machinery and old-ass robots who, over the years of isolation, went completely bonkers. If that's not a setup for a dungeon crawl, then I don't know what is.Also, I'm actually the Ryuutama CATastrophe dev guy, and overall feel of Ryuutama is perfect, both in tone (less "Let's save the world from an evil lich" and more "let's have a REALLY cool journey across the continent") and level of danger (forget being just barely hurt after falling from 10m cliff, in Ryuutama terrain can be as, if not more, dangerous as monsters).Personally i would do it in episodic "show" format - party travels to new town, arrives there, uncovers mystery/solves problem, optionally deals another round of punches to the Recurring Villain Trio and moves on to the next town/adventure.
>>57245362Which is why you introduce adversaries, but don't really have these adversaries go lethal unless absolutely necessary. And, like, Rule 1 of DMing - don't make player failure be unrecoverable from. In an nWoD crossover game I had, the players fucked up a mafia situation. They went down to the Don, were very respectful, defused the situation with the vampire ancilla, and while they didn't resolve the plot to their utmost satisfaction, they had to settle with a truce instead. Not the best ending, but a good ending.
>>57245375Please provide more context. Most of my regular playgroup are disgusting weaboos, so this might be up their alley. Who's this Ryuutama dev guy and why is there no links to his shit in the wiki?
>>57245207>What are you seeking out?Secrets of the past, advanced tech, old manuals, information on how the world got to where it is today, stuff like that. Inspiration can be found in post-apocalyptic works where the world has advanced far enough that everything's recovered, but signs of the old world still remain in the form of machinery and environmental scars.
>>57245314>then why do anything?Because you are supposed to fill warm and fuzzy inside from taking imaginary newbie catgirl to the nearby diving post to chose her first Aqualung.If you don't, you don't. can't be helped.As for stakes, If your know that stakes only go so far, it feels just as real as any epic adventure.>>57245362>in a world where NPCs are utterly incapable of solving basic problems on their own like functional adults. It's funny because in the example scenario in golden skies stories it even says that situation probably will get resolved even without PCs interfering at all, you just make it go a bit more smooth and faster>It's not "heartwarming" or "intimate", it's shallow and forgettableOpinion
>>57245406Considering everything has been under water for 200 years, you're probably not bringing back anything useful...
>>57245441I can certainly see HOW it can be fun, but two things need to happen. One is that the entire playgroup has to be in agreement that this is the kind of thing they want to do. The other thing is that the NPC has to be important enough to the group. And that kind of thing can happen in D&D too. In fact, in another group where I was a player, we have a kid that tags along with us on our adventure - and we're having fun roleplaying his dysfunctional adventurer mentors. But at the same time, one of our characters cuts off the faces of his foes, casts Gentle Repose on them, and adds them to his Facebook. Because as he explained, there's NPCs he cares for and NPCS he doesn't. Which makes sense. I haven't played the game you mentioned, so I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, but I doubt most people will just care about some random-ass NPC picking out her first new diving gear. On the other hand, if it's the friendly daughter of the bar owner who the PCs liked, then maybe it would be a different story.
>>57245476>Psychopathy motivated entirely by a pun.RPGs are great.
>>57245454Any species able to engineer catgirls is able to proof their tech against the ravages of time and environments.
>>57245492Today I learned things. Unironic props.
>>57245362Maybe Golden Sky Stories is going too far, but from the top of my hand the hooks i can come up with:>The town's power station is overtaken by electrolotl swarm and the whole city is depowered. Your comfy stay for the night is threatened, are you bad enough dudes to help townsfolk drive off the energy-eating menace?>The town is having a problem with pirates who uncovered and reprogrammed a giant robot, so nobody can really oppose them. However, the crazy old man on the outskirts of the village is rambling something about second robot hidden in the nearby Earless complex...>The party arrives to the town in mountainous region and find out that the local lumberjacks are hiring adventurers to help them with floating timber down the mountain stream. >The party comes upon a lone farm in the wilderness - curiously enough, it's maintained not by kemonomimi, but by a lone android who didn't went mad during all the years of isolation. He invites the party, but can you really trust him? And why is he working so diligently, as if the owners of the farm were still there? And what to do with that discovery?>The party is participating in worldwide chef/wrestling/fishing/music/whatever contest and must beat 8 champions before going for the title of Grand Champions of Whatever. Good for overarching goal and can work together with previous adventures - in true pokemon fashion each champion of Whatever refuses to test them until current situation is resolved>The party is chasing a legend of a giant undersea monstrosity, old as history itself. Whether for vanity or for more pragmatic reasons (maybe there's some miraculous kelp growing on its back, for example).>Standard "loot dungeons, get rich" scheme, only with robots, sea beasts and occasional superadvanced nanomachine construct nagging them to do something mysterious and possibly dangerous.
>>57245511I can add more. Also, nice Gravity Falls reference. >Earthquake shifts Earless ruin closer to the surface, so that it's now reachable in a single dive. >A particularly charismatic pirate is gathering other pirates to their flag. They talk about starting a perfect anarcho-capitalistic commune, but you know better.>A far-flung settlement has radioed a distress call - they hydroponics bay is fucked. You have the only ship that can get there in time. Problem is, that place is infested with <insert danger here>.>Deep One activity has tripled in the past month near a particular Earless ruin that used to be a museum warehouse. >The Great Race is upon you. Are you willing to enter your ship against all other Settlements? Are you gonna do this fairly, or what the judges don't know can't hurt it? And what about that Dick Dastardly android as well as his attractive dog-girl sidekick Muttleah?
>>57245498To be fair, the dude came up with the concept to aid his disguise check first. He then realized that he had 3 blank spellbooks, and Gentle Repose is a ritual. The pun wrote itself. He's now working on some kind of horrible necromantic thing to make them sentient or something.
>>57245476Well yeah, that type of a game is certainly a niche. Though as for player buy-in, if they knowingly agreed to play a system dedicated to exactly that, i would expect them to be exited to do just that.And I'm not saying you only allowed to play in this setting like that, just thought it can probably accommodate well for this kind of game. Ryuutama with boats and scuba probably fits it better anyway.>and adds them to his Facebookkek, took me a second
>>57245389Because i didn't upload it yet. Still have to hammer out magic (i mean, nanomachines), item and monster listRyuutama is an RPG that's most commonly referred to as "Hayao Miyazaki's Oregon Trail" and the description fits perfectly. It takes place in a loosely-defined european-ish setting where people get suddenly struck with wanderlust, leave their homes to friends/relatives and set off onto a journey. It is overseen by four dragons who need stories of adventure as sustenance.It is the only RPG wholly focusing on actual "travelling" part of hexcrawl. With much lower power level, your main obstacles would be not dragons and liches (though both exist!), but the land itself - dry and hot deserts, gurgly, glumpy, florpy (and other unsigthly sounds) boot-eating swamps, high mountains and blazing volcanoes, plus an occasional peaceful idyllic hamlet begging for you to set your travelling staff aside and settle down there (the comfiness, my worst enemy! Arrgh!). Plus gravity. In a game of Ryuutama we played i fell down from the high places so much, it became a running joke (and led to my character always trundling along the path wrapped up like a mummy on the Bad Gauze Day).TL;DR - it's an RPG about that one REALLY cool camping trip you had, but with more magic, monsters and spoopy stuff (which is not a part of aforementioned two anyways). Highly recommended by me, a random faggot on the internet.
>>57245620Hmm. I generally detest travel time as a mechanic overall, but I'd be willing to give it a read when it comes out.
>>57245620>Also get TPK'd by swarm of giant murder-bees
>>57245454Sorry for Tvtropes stuff, but Ragnarok Proofing. Ever thought why exactly all those traps in D&D dungeons are still functioning since the times of Angrammafrack the XVIIIth (the man, the legend)? Here it's the same but with more technobabble about better materials and airlocks (why did earless outfitted their then-overwater bunkers with airlocks? M Y S T E R Y).

>>57245713See:>>57244800Also, there's androids, mermaids, nagas, and angels.
>>57245565>The Great Race is upon you. Are you willing to enter your ship against all other Settlements? Are you gonna do this fairly, or what the judges don't know can't hurt it? And what about that Dick Dastardly android as well as his attractive dog-girl sidekick Muttleah?Being a slav, i have slightly different associations...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventures_of_Captain_WrongelThere's probably a translation of the cartoon somewhere. It's really good and has some cool ideas for adventure and/or trouble
>>57245770I didn't say furries. I said catgirls.
>>57245770butare there fishmen
>>57245778DUUUUUUUDE, I loved that cartoon when I was a kid, growing up in St. Petersburg. Feels like a lifetime ago. I only remember the Bandito song, the squirrels, and the name "Beda."
>>57245770I think he has a problem with catgirls themselves, but i dread even to imagine there exists someone so devoid of joy.>>57245713But seriously, it's not that hard to just make people of the setting something else and make it the same "advanced humans from outside perspective". Maybe they're amnesiac popsicle humans, or vat-grown descendants, or, if you're into it, straight-up furries. The point is, they should be only somewhat familliar with precursors' tech, be resillient as fuck, curious and more lighthearted than your average post-apoc population.
>>57245825There are mermaids and mermen, who, when I finish the "Magical Realm" chapter, will be sexually compatible with the other races. There are also the Deep Ones, who are not. >>57245785There's nothing degenerate about catgirls. Why, even the Imperium of Man in 40k has catgirls in the Imperial Guard.
>>57245828>but i dread even to imagine there exists someone so devoid of joy.Shut up, man.You don't know me.
>>57245842i didn't said merforlki said fishmen
>>57245842>There's nothing degenerate about catgirls.Nice try, degenerate.I feel the urge to purge.
>>57245848Deep Ones, yes.
>>57245846to be fair, you're not limited to -girls, you can be a manly man too. If you find the art, that is.But yeah, refluffing is a thing, so it's not that much of a problem.
>>57245862But look at this pure Aryan pair. They want to give you the good word about the Fur-rer, and want you to make sure you do your part for the Fatherland by being a father.
>>57244926>robots>nagas>sirensWhy /tg/ can't do a single project without fucktons of racial bloat? While i would make a pass for (very, VERY rare) sapient android/AI thing, having a whole other race of animalfolk (not to mention, there's two of them) AND Lovecraft fishmen seems very excessive.
>>57245862But look at Wakfu, they have catgirls, but nobody in Wakfu is degenerate.
>>57245919Because I'm following the standard nWoD template of "5 races" and "5 classes."
>>57245916You cannot tempt me away from righteousness with your feline floozies.>>57245924>Wakfu>degeneracyPick two and only two.
>>57245932There's more than 5 "races" (something like 11 major playable splats now) and the 5 "classes" are internal to a splat.
Stop taking the bait, god damn.
>>57245950When I say "races," I am referring to the internal ones to a splat. So in Mage, you have the 5 races of "Acanthus, Mastigos, Moros, Obrimos, Thyrsus" and the 5 classes of "Adamantine Arrow, Free Council, Guardian of the Veil, Mysterium, Silver Ladder."Or how in Vampire, you have the 5 "races": "Daeva, Gangrel, Mekhet, Nosferatu, and Ventrue;" and then the 5 "classes": Carthian, Circle, Invictus, Lancea, Ordo.
>>57245936Embrace the dak side.
>>57245936SUCCUMB TO THE DARK SIDE.
>>57245936We have cookies. And fluffy ears/tails. And anatomically correct headphones.
>>57246028This has always bothered me. Do catfolk retain their human ears?
NOYOU WILL NOT TEMPT ME, DEGENERATES
Has anybody actually played CATastrophe?I'm up for it, but it'd have to be a PbP
>>57246057Nah, that's what makes it not furry. The only thing they have is the animal ears and the tail, IF that. Pic related.
>>57246057No and anyone who insists otherwise is a terrible person and possible reincarnation of whatever person in the world you personally hate the most.Though human ear headband as a fashion trend might be actually pretty hilarious.
>>57246057In my headcanon sci-fi kemonomimi are biological wireless communication device and has nothing to do with hearing
>>57246091>that horse>that rabbit>that cowhnnnng
>>57246072Was that supposed to convince us? Or yourself? Because i feel like it failed on both occasions.
>>57245862yes, purge the people who dont like catgirls, the world will be better
>>57246113Agawa Ryou or something.
>>57246123>>57246091>>57246108Huh, then that should affect skull structure. Cats IRL have outer ear cannals that connect their ears to the side of their skull. Human skulls can't acommodate these tubes, which should lead to structural problems for catgirls.
>>57244598This is really the best thread on all of /tg/ right now.It makes me sad, even though I love CATastrophe.
>>57246176the modification could be fairly minor really, after all you are removing the "normal" ears so the skull would have to be modified either way
>>57246155You will not sway me, degenerate. Although I invite you to try.
>>57246176That's why i like catgirls with side-ears (or ears slightly higher than humans') more.Also, pic related.
>>57245620I'm developing my own One page system for this, mostly need to rewrite my first draft of the system and then collate lore.To me CATastrophe was taking a break from D&D, Dark Heresy, and so on. I don't WANT vancian casting systems or MP. At most I want an item that does something cool like a malfunctioning nanomachine factory that can spit out everything you need to survive but its all drab grey. So instead of pushing nanomachines I suggest you push artifacts or weird plants and animals as well.
>>57246223>Although I invite you to try.You're already one of us, anon.
>>57246213The difference of inner ear position between humans and cats isn't that different ,though. So unless you do some weird anatomic shit like in >>57246246 that makes the skull much brittler, you need to create a layer of tissue over the tissue to acommodate the outer channels.
>>57246266...Where can I get the pdf and more catgirl art
>>57246262Oh, of course. Nanomachines are just a way of keeping some of Ryuutama-ish magic (even though spell list got reworked a whole lot). The beauty of Ryuutama magic is that it doesn't really do anything you cannot accomplish by yourself with some simple items (except for maybe high level magic, and it got cut the most). Artifacts and weird earless stuff takes center stage still.I also made a character class able to invent gizmos replicating the effects of spells. Inventor/eartaku needs some testing, but i don't feel he's that overpowered (he needs a LOT of money for his spells) The way i did it, individual "programs" come in containers with nanopaste that has to be assimilated by user, so there could be humt for these "spells" too (either to learn them or to sell them for some serious neo-shekels, the nanopaste cannot be reproduced).
this art is real helpful for his thing I'm trying to paint.Will post for prosperity
>>57246319all current pdfs are on 1d4chan.Pictures? Danbooru, Pixiv, carefully diving into cesspits of Deviantart (wear a suitably non-corrosive hardsuit and prepare eye bleach, i have seen... things.)
>>57246269>that makes the skull much brittlerCould be compensated by the fact that kemomimi are much tougher than humans (and with stronger bones?). Not to the point of pic related (also an example of side-ears - EFFICIENCY!) or cartoon characters, but pretty close.
>>57246401Well, they're genetically engineered beast people, why the heck not?
>>57246416I think one of the earliest thing we agreed on in the early threads was kemomimi being able to easily withstand pressure changes.>>57246352this is pretty cool, anon.
>>57244598I ran a setting idea by my dmIt's basically this but instead of animal people and genetic manipulation the gimmick is 1940s technology like WW2 ships, submarines, and seaplanes... Please tell me it's a cool idea because he thought it was meh
>>57246401would be cool as a weakness though.>"Remember boys, their genetic engineering makes'em tough but there skull doesn't like their own ears much. A solid strike to the base of their ear will down them"
>>57246483True that, maybe some kind of vulnerability to headshots?
>>57246483>>57246489eh, no need to think it out too far. We're not making a GURPS race....we're not, right? right?
How high are the sea levels, anyway?
>>57246526wait i thought we are
>>57246544really all it takes is like a 2-3 meter rise to put a lot of the world under, holland is allredy at great risk, half of poland and germany would be floded if water rose 1 m, probobly most of the east and west cost of the USA would go down too. All you need is a 5m rise to have a setting like this
>>57246544About that height. Here's the map with hexes.1 hex = 1 day of ship travel in Ryuutama
Can I use this game to RUn a game set in Nagi no Asukara's world?
>>57246620there are fishgirls/boys
>>57246624if you make them catfish that might work
>>57245163>What kind of "plots" do you even play in a setting like this?Can always go "Keep on the Borderlands"-style with ruins and the "rough waters" lurking nearby...
>>57244623... and it's still one of the beter settings that /tg/ has come up with, so?
>>57245375>Those two mine lifts above what looks like a water damI have so many questions....

>>57245919>While i would make a pass for (very, VERY rare) sapient android/AI thingThat's precisely why there's always racial bloat - you have team of people, each of whom makes a pass for one thing, who together then allow multiple things, at which point it seems harmless to add "one more thing" or "ten more things".>>57245975WoD games are built around "what if every type of modern fantasy creature depicted in fiction that people would want to emulate was true simultaneously?", NWOD basically realised that you can, with 5 clans and 5 factions produce 25 different kinds of vampire (whereas cWoD only really had the clans for fewer types of vampires and had the sects as "good, bad & ugly" storytelling/meta-plot devices) which isn't a thing a CATastrophe Storyteller system should worry about as much.You are, to some extent, right to question "what *function* do these various species provide to the game", but then that raises the question of what the point of the game is?Ultimately the game should just be cats because they're in the name. No wan wans, no awoo, certainly no squeekers.Or maybe a better way of putting it is: if a CATastrophe game doesn't work with only catgirls then it won't work with smelly doggos and other species.
>>57245381>don't make player failure be unrecoverable fromNo, if they fuck things up with a stupid decision, on their head be it.
>>57245575Have you advised this guy to seek therapy?I mean, the player, not just the character.
>>57246176Cat ears actually attach at about the same point as human ears, but stick up due to cartilage.I grew up with an unusually docile, friendly, and chilled-out cat, who allowed me to check that.
>>57246123This version is funnier imo
Okay guys, I should really be studying, but here's an extremely shitty OC rules light system for CATastrophe.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AnG70Plgdnepz6DLuo8OtcTVbsaXnxD1/view?usp=sharing
>>57251777I fully intend to come back to this when I have more, and add rules for advancement and stuff for exploration.
>>57244623I unno, it does look rather comfy
>>57244598>Power lines in the water
>>57249104I feel like catboy Operators operating operationally would be a different game than originally conceived.
>>57251777>ANOTHER systemholy carp, guys.
>>57245713It's weird to think that you would expect anyone to value your post or opinions when this is the first time you've heard of this setting.
>>57246480Why not those things... with cat girls?
>>57246352Looking pretty nice anon
>>57252475It's weird to think that there are people who don't read the thread or even just follow reply chains before replying to someone.
>>57252525We're all anonymous, friend. There's no reason to try and save face by defending your dumb posts. Just forget about them and move on, and no one will be the wiser.
>>57252289They're quite clearly up a pole anon and in any case it's not like you can't run electrical services underwater with the right equipment, otherwise submerged pumps would never work.
>>57246480So.. command and conquer red alert? Fallout?
>>57252289>Power lines in the waterYou know the poles aren't electrified, right
>>57252546>getting this autistic about jokes that happened hours ago>immediately trying to game the conversation so that you look better no matter whatWew. This was fun.
>>57252690I hope your day gets better, anon!
This is super comfy. Maybe though to give people an idea of how it could be more dangerous, get some more pacific or northern atlantic images on board. People might be able to envision the range of danger better if they see giant fish, giant squids, ice floats, white-furred catgirls bundled up, etc. With almost all the images being tropical clear blue water it gives the setting an extremely comfy, serene carefree feel.
>>57252427I'm sorry I guess :(
>>57252645I think it's more of a "Why not bury them" thing.
>>57244598It was a terrible concept before and it is still a terrible concept years later.
>>57253077Because it was like that before shit got flooded you dummy
>>57253557That doesn't look like an area that wasn't under water before.
>>57253047No, it's fine, it's just hilarious how we have systems for almost every popular traditional game already, including GURPS (which is just GURPS, but that's beside the point) plus at least two original. It is rare /tg/ concept ever gets to actual realization phase.>>57252742We need more art like this in RPG books desu.
>>57253717>That doesn't look like an area that wasn't under water before.In this photo >>57252645the lines are above water because the grid was laid after the island it reaches was settled, and it was cheaper to use above-ground poles than to lay underwater cable because third world.In OP's picture, the lines were originally on dry land and are still standing because very few Korean shitscribble artists understand how quickly metal corrodes in a saltwater-rich environment.
>>57253721>for almost every popular traditional game already, including GURPSI can only find FATE and MAID, plus PAWS (who the fuck thought d20 would be a good idea for this???) and TAIL (which is surprisingly similar to my system. I swear I hadn't looked at it before! I still feel that I like mine better, though).
>>57253840D20 roughly covers D&D, so only dungeon world is left :^).Also i fucking love how we have THREE systems with punny statistic scores. Cat puns are truly the highest form of humor.
>>57254167Do it as a pure apocalypse system rather than dungeon world.In fact, could you just change the setting and apocalypse world work without alteration? Maybe swap speedboat for car?
So this thread makes me want to run a game, but I also have the urge for some sort of skyworld instead of waterworld. Perhaps slightly more technomagic in flavor, full of floating islands, blimps, planes, impossible bridges and pockets of weird gravity. Some islands clearly have a top and bottom, others are like microplanets with buildings on every surface. There is no known "land" underneath all of this, just more sky in all directions. Sky pirates, flying leviathans and ancient guardians defending caches of supplies and technology make up the threats of this world. And falling. Really, really try to avoid that, it's a long way to anything if you fall.
>>57254341Pic related for inspiration (actually, for vanilla CATastrophe inspiration too).Furry, yes, but that's fixable and overall game/atmosphere is a perfect fit.
>>57246544I have it as being 92% water. 4-6 hours between tier 1 settlements, 8-16 hours between tier 2 settlements, and up to 2 days between tier 3 settlements. >>57248781Only if you telegraphed it. My policy is that if the players fail due to bad information, then it's a failure they can come back from. If it's a failure because they ignored the information, then fuck 'em. >>57248827No? Dude's a surgeon IRL, so whatever his issues are, they aren't impacting his lifestyle.>>57253840I'm doing Storyteller/nWoD myself, it's in the top of the thread somewhere. I'll edit the wiki when done.
>>57244623Maybe we should add dog girls and fox girls...
>>57248375I'm avoiding racial bloat because I am literally the sole person designing and implementing this. Some of my group is providing feedback, and they're the reason I have nagas instead of tree girls, which was my first idea. As to your second point, what does it mean the game "ultimately" should be? That's a foolish and loaded statement. By that definition D&D should be JUST dungeons that are populated by dragons or dragons that are dungeons. Hell, you wouldn't even have the classic fantasy races.Purism is generally pointless. In the case of the 5 races of CATastrophe as according to me, you got:>Kemomimi with an affinity towards land>Sirens with an affinity towards water>Andies with an affinity towards cities.>Nagas with an affinity towards trees.>Aves with an affinity towards the skies.Likewise, the 5 Schools or "classes" also have a defined role:>Swashbucker for combat>Director for social stuff>Rover for science stuff>Rustler for sneaky stuff>Commodore for vehicle stuffWhich gives us a massive matrix to work with AND keeps the spirit of CATastrophe intact. Because if you can have animal-eared girls, why not any of the other ones?
>>57254341>So this thread makes me want to run a gameAre you sure you really want to run a game, and not just masturbate to drawings of cute lesbians being cute in a gorgeous fantasy environment before moving on to the next grazing area?Because if it turns out to be the latter, we're all going to have wasted our time.
>>57252409>catboy Operators operating operationallythat's strange. I suddenly have an erection.
>>57255061Very kind of you anon, thanks!>>57255303While the second option might sound tempting I'm pretty sure that what I want is to build a collection of sky island based factions, monsters, lost relics, dungeons and fleets, then send a party out to explore. Somewhat freeform, might work out an overarching plotline later. Have to figure out a system though, most of my group are diehard d20 fans and I really don't think that has the right mechanics for such a game.
>>57255572That reminds me, nobody has done a Shadowrun hack yet.Probably it's for the better.Also, catmen>catboys.
>>57255861Because you don't really need a hack to do it in SR. You have SURGE, you have ship rules. You even have a source book that revolves around water-based encounters.
>>57255303Lets not kid ourselves, the latter is the sole reason for this whole setting to exist.Nobody will ever run a game.Just more theorycrafting
>>57246563Nah. 5m replaces the San Joaquin Delta with a lake, and takes out a chunk of LA. To flood the Central Valley and turn Bakersfield into a seaport requires about 100m. To flood Las Vegas requires 600m of sea rise.
>>57248781Pilot's vision was "Tom and Jerry Go To The Beach"./tg/ wanted Fallout: Tailspin.Middle grounds are plentiful.
>>57257821I mean, you say that, but my main playgroup is doing a Princess campaign. As soon as I'm done with it, and that campaign is over, we'll do CATastrophe in nWoD.
>>57245375See, I agree that Ryuutama is a much better system for this.
>>57255861Unf, that's hot. A-am I a furry now?!
>>57245620I was gonna buy Ryuutama. Should i spring for the colectors edition?
>>57260408Not until it has a muzzle or at least one set of inhuman paws.
>>57257821Just because you are a low energy little faggot doesn't mean we all are. Try being more proactive, and you too can play catgirl beach story, and enjoy the myriad other great things that have come out of this board.
>>57245919It's a consequence of how /tg/ and creating shit collaboratively on it works. Inherent in the medium, as it were. If you try to set up boundaries and limits against this sort of thing you look grumpy and "no fun allowed" and people's enthusiasm get sapped (because they're low-resilience faggots, another consequence of the location), so projects led in this way peter out and go nowhere. In contrast the projects where everyone can shoehorn in his personal snowflake bullshit comparatively flourish because everyone can shoehorn in his personal snowflake bullshit and cater to his particular fetish/daydream. Incidental features of these daydreams are presented in the threads as content and thus material gradually accumulates.
>>57244623>hating on Keijo!!!!!!!!Lame
>>57260823CE is neat-looking, but I bought it more to support the author and translators.
don't mind me, just postin stuff.
To not just dump, how you guys do your pirates?Serious threat, schoolyard bullies or Team Rocket?
>>57264208guess it's ded, then.
>>57264208saturday morning cartoon villains. Avoid death but make them scary looking and a decent threat. They'll beat you up, take all your stuff and leave you drifting.
>>57264208I like some variety. Most of them are just after your stuff and aim for intimidation first, but pretty capable if it comes down to combat. Have a specific crew out there of Team Rocket goofballs, and then a serious threat fleet with a reputation to match, possibly built up around a proper naval vessel that outclasses anything else around.
>>57264208Basically:>Most pirates will just beat you up and take your shit>Many of them even form their own diver groups, for some of them pirating is secondary>Pirates build ridiculous machines more for intimidation purposes - sure, they're fine in combat, but they're entirely dismantlable (read: potential boss monsters for the group)>if you try to go full murderhobo, law enforcement in form of dojo ships comes after your ass faster than you can say "but it's what my character would do!">Even other pirates won't associate with full-on murderers
>>57244598>Catastrophe>AKA Catgirls+waterLiterally a non-setting. Where's the conflict? Where's the adventure? Where's the thought aside from "muh dick"
>>57266142Read the thread, you fool.
>>57245032>Morality metric (called Adventure)What would you even want that for in a setting that's meant for exploration and buddyness? It's important to horror settings and moral decay, but CATastrophe is everything that WoD is not. I don't see the point.
>>57266142>I cannot into reading
>>57263129I honestly have no issue paying the extra $10 for it. My only issue is that tge regular edition clver art is so cute. I decided on CE anyways.Hope it holds up well if i ever need another copy ill get the regular edition.
>>57245375>overall feel of Ryuutama is perfectPlease keep us posted, anon.How do you do races? I thought it could be a small bonus of +2/-2 on the relevant attributes of each case. Of course, if you take time to develop it, you can also have race-specific skills that add to your class skills.The nautical aspect of the setting would as well pose some differences from the default Ryutama world. Would it suffice to translate travel checks into sailing checks?
>>57266780The thing is, +2 is a HUGE bonus for Ryuutama (hardcap on any possible bonuses to a roll is at +3).I was thinking to not assign any mechanical benefits to different races, but to instead list some common stereotypes. But if i could do bonuses that are equally universal, desirable and not very significant to certain classes, i would probably do that. I know nekogoblins from christmas update have special skills, but they pay for it with lower base stats, so i'm gonna need to balance that stuff.Nautical aspect is easy - there's a rough draft of first expansion (which deals with travel by vehicles and ships) already on the internet and on Ryuutama subreddit there are stats for common ships (easily convertable for more modern world).Also, the CATastrophe book will also contain something usable for vanilla Ryuutama - combat alterations that will hopefully make it less boring (combat is definitely a weak point of the system, even though it's not really made for EPIC CONFRONTATIONS OF EPICNESS). Expanded base actions, some mechanical stuff for combat types (aka weeaboo fightan magic), ability to do silly stuff with turn economy, more sophisticated bestiary... It all will either make combat better or make it a mess, so i must test it a bit.

>>57244865>endless desertWhy'd they even make that up? It makes no sense. Either we have nuclear winter or global warming, but there's actually no way to desertify the planet.
Cats generally hate the water so imagine the shrieking and yowling in such a cat infested water world! Shit, it'd be like cat hell!
>>57267912Mad Max, which takes place in australia presumably and was filmed in the outback and which is kind of a shithole over all.Fallout 1 and 2 played with that but took place in california which is, again, mostly a desert shithole.A lot of people notice the desert but fail to understand the context.
>>57268062People in CATastrophe are 90% human, 10% cat. There is some cat-avistic behavior, but it's generally not that pronounced.
>>57268212While that is true on a visual level anime catgirls ALWYAS act in 100% cat manner for comedic purposes. Going nuts over fishies, stepping on their tails, craving small furry anythings (especially for lesbianic purposes), and so on. You might as well say that wolf girls don't awoo at hte moon.
>>57266780>trees growing underwaterIt would actually look interesting if they were replaced with seaweed.
>>57268062Ahkshully, cats generally love water so long as they've been raised with it. Big cats love to soak and swim, for example.
>>57268745If we're being honest then cat girls are NEVER big cats, except in their dreams of the hunt, same as all dogs dream of running in packs and howling at the moon. Cat girls being mostly human are all very much domestic cats. Stands to reason. They WILL spit and hiss at water, especially if someone chases them with the spray bottle. They will claw you up if it's their bath time and be miserable in the rain. The only time they like it is if it's a hot springs episode.
>>57268907Beach episodes vary. She might enjoy the ocean or you might get comedic scenes where she resists, remaining in the warm sand, and occasionally has giant waves that threaten to drench her causing her suffer an exaggerated anime expression. Truly a horrible fate.
>>57268458>>57268907>While that is true on a visual level anime catgirls ALWYAS act in 100% cat manner for comedic purposes.As someone who dislikes that trope, i am glad that it's not the part of CATastrophe. I mean, sometimes when it makes sense it's fine to go with reaction like that, but in general "lol this is funny because he/she is a cat" jokes should be kept to reasonable minimum.
>>57268907>If we're being honest then cat girls are NEVER big cats,Kemono Friends :^)
>>57269333Only if they're Dangerously Cheesy.
>>57269333Those aren't cat girls. Those are actually illegal poachers who decided to dress in the corpses of their kills to disguise their illegal activities. It's totally a Scooby-Doo move.Hell, when you look close they aren't even girls!
>>57244598CATastrophe is the comfiest of settings.10/10 would adventure in.
>>57245163I imagine something like Megaman Legends. People are mostly living comfortably. On the surface, pirates are the biggest threat. But even the pirates tend to be more troublemakers than an actual threat. They steal and break stuff, but they don't harm or kill people. Beneath the surface is lots of valuable ancient technologies and mysteries. But it's also inhabited by evil robots and dangerous sea creatures. Big "threats to the world" might arise if the players delve to deep and awaken some ancient nuclear AI or mutant hellbeast. I think the nice thing about a "comfy" setting is that it can easily respond to the players and give them what they're looking for. They can just travel around to different towns, solve mundane problems, and make people happy. They can go treasure-hunting in the ruins, and have light-hearted fights with pirates and rival adventurers. Or they can dive deep into the abyss in search of the terrible secrets of the past and their own existence.
>>57269867>Mega Man LegendsMy dogga.
>>57266142>Where's the conflict?Oh look, Amerimutt>Where's the adventure?Read the fucking thread.
>>57253077Assuming shallows, it's easier and more cost-efficient to use poles instead of trying to burry it, which assumes you have specific gear and specific type of cable.
>>57270552That comment literally says "generally" so...yeah. Good reading comprehension.
>>57268062Cats hate COLD water. Which is most water and rain.They like warm water. Images of this setting are exclusively tropical for a reason.
>>57266780>Nagi no AsukaraAlways looked interesting, still need to watch it though
>>57271266Yeah, you try throwing tubby tabby in his warm bathwater and see how many of YOUR veins he opens up. Not to worry, though, because plenty of animals enjoy playing in water if it's their choice as opposed to being forced. All the dogs I've owned have enjoyed the fuck out of chasing the sprinkler and trying to "catch" the water by snapping at it with their teeth, but typically hide when it's time for the bee eh tee aich

>>57272781Wow, son, how have you never in your life noticed that it's a commonly held belief that cats hate water? Now you can argue whether or not there is merit to this belief, and that's fine, but you shouldn't be surprised if people have this perception/misconception. It even has an entry on the tvtropes and you know 4chan loves itself some tvtropes!These any many more examples are freely available to you on a simple google search:http://www.animalplanet.com/pets/healthy-pets/do-cats-really-hate-water/https://www.cathealth.com/how-and-why/why-do-cats-hate-waterhttps://www.petmd.com/cat/behavior/pet-myths-do-cats-really-hate-water

Can you guys just stop?We all know some cats dislike water.We all ALSO know that this is a sci-fi setting with people in it able to at least repair and maintain high tech machinery, so it's obvious they won't act like dumb instinct-driven animals most of the time.If you REALLY want your dose of "lmao it's a cat", i hereby rule it out that diving by your own volition is fine, but getting suddenly thrown into water is very distressing. Here, done.
>>57273490I know /tg/ has a reputation for being extra autistic than the rest of 4chan - it simply comes with the hobby - but to see it encapsulated so perfectly in a single post. My god, I have no words. Should have sent a poet.
>>57273425Pro-tip: we aren't talking about actual cats, we're talking about anime cat girls. Something that runs into its own cliches, among the most potent of which is that they tend to not only typify cat behavior (even behavior that is a common belief but isn't necessarily real) but turn the dial up to 11 for comedic effect.The humorous thing is looking back to the post that started us down on stupid trip, it appears to simply be nothing more than a harmless joke playing to the common belief that cats hate water.
>>57273842Yes it was a joke. No clue why it inspired a great debate raging for hours.
>>57246592time to settle in Yunnan desu
>>57270552>>57268062The thing is you have to understand that a cat objects to water because it's cold, not because it's wet, and a cat obviously does not care even about that if it gets a fish as a result of getting wet.in a quasi tropical heat the water is cool, not cold, and catgirls are okay with diving for the same reason the players want their PC's to dive; because there's shinies and fish to grab.
>>57274198As has been said it was a joke. Oddly enough one I've seen in other CATastrophe threads and it usually earns at least one chuckling response. This time it's derailed the thread more than long enough with pure BS. I think we can safely put a pin in this one.

Never played the game, I'll probably never get my group to agree to something like it, but I do like these threads for the images (though frankly if you've been in one of these threads before you've probably seen the vast majority of the art). Overall it gives me some nice Chrono Cross vibes, which I suppose is slightly humorous due to the coincidence of having a cat person in it.
>>57244598The problem with catgirls is this: either they have four ears, which is weird and gross, or they have blank skin where their human ears would be, which is also weird and gross.
>>57277727Chrono Cross. Tropical water setting, primitive peoples but you can explore two flavors of ancient magical cities, the ancient stone ruins of the Dragons and the time-displaced high-tech city of Chronopolis whose inhabitants are techno-magic ghosts caught at the point of the crisis that destroyed them and their city. Overall the plot is a bit of a mess and the cast is fucknormous to the point of you'll probably never to bother to use 70% of them.
>>57277825You know cat ear holes and human ear holes are both on the sides of the head right. The "ear" part that sticks up on a cat/out on a human is just cartilage, it just grows differently.
>>57277951Pretty sure he's talking about the version in OP's pic, where they stick up from the top of the head like alien antenna. Which, yeah, is pretty weird. Probably why sometimes it's just stylistic hair bumps.This topic reminds me of the 2011 Thundercats reboot. Piece of shit storywise after some initial decent worldbuilding, but the designs were generally not bad. Most of them had elf style ears with those having more beastly ears, like the Thunderkittens, being considered low caste freaks. And Wilykit actually pulling her ears into her topknot bit.
The Big Blue Hole is a sinkhole 1000 meters across. Soundings have estimated it's depths at 20000 meters. This is far deeper than a normal sinkhole and even deeper than the surrounding ocean floor. The Big Blue Hole is widely regarded to have been artificially created after the sea was raised but by who, how, or why is a mystery. The Hole produces a tremendous warm upwelling of nutrient laden water that results in a massive amount of sea life. Many species are unique to this location only. As if that wasn't enough to attract divers there is a massive amount of shinies present in what seem to be tombs. Unlike Earless burial sites found elsewhere that were buried horizontally along the ground these seem to have been buried vertically along the walls of the hole. Retrieving these shinies is made more difficult by various species of aquatic life that are very aggressive. It is unknown what lies at the very bottom of the hole and how the upwelling is being produced. A specialized submarine would be needed to reach those depths.Theme song:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJYKsY0Vcts
I wonder what sports are popular in this setting. Aside from beach volleyball, swimming and dragonboat racing.>>57278188Still waiting for footage of the very bottom of that thing.
Japari Park is an island populated by all kinds of Kemomimi. For reasons not yet understood those who live there soon lose their long term memories. (drugs in the food? Earless nanotechnology? aliens?) It is generally peaceful with it's residents cared for by Earless machines. There are rumors that Kemomimi who want to forget their past choose to live there. Some say there is a notorious criminal who wanted to make a fresh start. Adventurers landing on the island should be careful or else they lose their memories and become a permanent resident. The island itself is divided into artificially maintained biomes and is structured like a large safari park. Beside the wild animals visitors should also be careful of "Ceruleans" which seem to be rogue Earless machines.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeq2M6_sJP8&

>>57280014An old homebrew setting made back then, a post-apocalyptic setting geared towards more comfy with animal-eared humanoids running (or swimming) around a flooded earth.Or you could just read the thread and do some rsearch>http://1d4chan.org/wiki/CATastrophe
>>57280014A product of the same time that gave us Velocity, and that one setting that's never been discussed again that was basically Pirates of the Caribbean meets Outlaw Star.
>>57280274Pirates of the Caribbean meets outlaw star sounds AWESOME!What happened/went wrong?what is Velocity?
>>57280833It just died really. was there for a couple threads then poof.Basically Jet Grind Radio the RPG.
>>57280929>It just died really. was there for a couple threads then poof. Do not confuse dead with dormant.
>>57280929>>57281338It pops up from time to time and gets worked on a little more, part of the thing is that it's mostly done.
>>57282535If you're the author, then good job.If not, then props to the author for keeping the faith even now.
>>57282535fresh!is there artwork for this?
scuba girls for you /tg/
>>57283013Got any more of this? I want to see more of what are essentially female Navy SEALs
>>57283139not much, sadly
just cute diversno Navy SEALs
who knows Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea?
basically Star Trek TOS underwaterbut before Star Trekand with cool Godzilla monsters!
and a cool mini-submarine coming out of the big one!
>>57283306Diver girls with guns, maybe tactical, is what I think the anon meant. Unfortunately I don't have such images.So have a potential Halloween encounter for supernatural campaigns.
and it flies!
>>57283442oh noes!skellington pirates attack bubble city!
will our tactical underwater lesbians get there in time for the rescue?
>>57283371I remember the originals.
>>57283513Although given the tech level, I don't think this kind of settlement would be available. At least not as an abandoned structure with surprisingly-intact vending machines.
>>57283577why couldn't that be a forgotten high-tech earless secret underwater research facility with atomic submarines and shit?
>>57283513>>57283577Akadmee, the most high-tech settlement out there and hotbed of Earless research.Personally i like towns having MML small european town aesthetic.
>>57283577>there can't be different tech levels on the whole planet
>>57283724>>57283763>>57283765i like the whole deep sea is space aesthetic
low-tech catgirls on the surface/mad scientists underwater?
crypto-nazi antarctic base maybe?
>>57283763Diver's Bay would claim otherwise but a floating mobile city accompanied by a ever growing ever splintering fleet of fractious divers out for the next big dive has a hard time focusing enough to respond to claims of excellence.
>>57284954Diver's bay yes, i meant land settlements. Houses of brick and mortar because they're easier to maintain, but high tech machinery present.Also, am i dumb for hoping Red Ash won't be complete dogshit?
>>57285258akadmee was always more of a tower in my mind. Jutting up out of the water.nothing wrong with hoping but Mighty Number 9 has unpleasant implications there. Nevermind how poorly it does as a megaman game its own design is very amatuerish and it doesn't capitalize well on its dashing combo stuff.
>>57281338Sure, just waiting for a /co/ thread to lament not getting stuff done like /tg/ while simultaneously /tg/ has threads lamenting never having made anything like /co/. Last month was weird like that.
>>57283513How will Jar Jar's people ever survive!
