    So, /tg/. I know mid-DDoS is no time to ask for feedback on an idea, but, well, I'm interested in seeing how the hivemind responds.

    Basically, I want to introduce my nephew, niece, and their friends to some roleplaying. Specifically, I want to run a PG 10-to-12-year-old version of Deathwatch.

    The short of it is that it takes place in an alternate universe, where the battle between fast food franchises is less economical and significantly more literal.
    McDonald's, Taco Bell, KFC, and others are their own planets with people, and wage "war" against each other by trying to commandeer the others' factories and resources, which are guarded by swarms of anthromorphic personifications of burgers, fried chicken, tacos, or whatever thematically-appropriate food. When blasted, they turn into piles of ingredients to be snatched up.
    The players play as the respective mascots of the franchise of choice, but as (PG) badasses and military commanders, working together in a temporary alliance to fight against the other chains.

    Think I could work with this?

    Oh, and here's a snippet my nephew wrote for his character:

    "Colonel Harland Sanders looked over the horizon as the sun rose. He stood on top of the cliff, clutching his cane tight as he leaned on it.
    The sun was always pretty, but today was really pretty. It was as if the sun itself knew his aims and blessed them with a warm smile and light to guide him on.

    He nodded as he surveyed the empire that lay beneath the cliff. His soldiers, his people, his empire was preparing for a mighty attack, and he was going to lead them on in battle against Jack In The Box and their blasters.
    Already, he could see them. The sun rising was blotted by the gigantic army that rose over the end of the road, starting to charge over at them. They were ready to fight! They were ready to battle!

    Sanders looked down, and he could see his people quaking in fear. How could they stand against such a mighty force?
    But Sanders wasn't afraid at all. He was confident and brave, and strong. He knew that if he stood his ground and didn't look scared, his people would fight onwards and win the day. Jack would never know what hit him.
    He gave a jump off of the cliff and soared through the air, pointing his cane ahead as he yelled really loud.

    'Go, my people!' He yelled. 'Do not huddle behind scared like wussy-boys-and-girls! Are you chicken, or are you CHICKEN-MEN? We are going to KICK THEIR BUTTS!'
    Still falling, he grabbed a Mustard Bolter that he had strapped to his leg and started shooting ahead at the horizon. None of them would hit, but none of them needed. He knew Jack would become angry from the shots, defying against their approach.
    And his people needed to know that there was a hero who would fight to the end."

    I like to think that he landed, promptly discovered why jumping off a cliff isn't a good idea, and had to be hospitalized afterwards. But that would be mean.

    your nephew is either a genius or a literary troll, and i'm not sure which.
    anyway, sounds like it'd be pretty interesting, but who's going to play what?

    Seems so.

    Well, uh.

    So far, we have Colonel Sanders as a Tactical Marine, played by my nephew. "He was a Colonel, right? He should be good with strategy-ing!" So far, it seems the only strategy he has in mind is "slaughter fucking everything", which, as far as strategies go, is pretty good as long as it works. Always eager to leap head-first into combat and will charge straight through the wall if he has to.
    Ronald McDonald is played by my nephew's friend and is the Librarian. I initially had terrifying thoughts about A: a clown, B: a psyker, and C: a clown psyker, but he seems to be playing pretty well. He's playing more like the Dark Knight's Joker. At least, so he says, I haven't watched the Dark Knight, but either way Ronald snarks a lot and doesn't say much.
    My niece is playing as the fucking Panda Express Panda and is the fucking Apothecary, which boggles my mind. She doesn't talk a lot, she mostly makes growling and roaring sounds, the other kids pretend they understand her, and it is the cutest goddamn thing. There's also the issue of a GODDAMN PANDA IS BEING THE GODDAMN FIELD MEDIC.
    Oh, and my other niece is playing the King as the Assault. She's actually just kind of bland, playing the "straight man" to everyone's shenanigans, or rather as much of a straight man as a 12-year-old girl can be. Sanders is a bloodthirsty lunatic, Ronald snarks and makes people feel bad, the Panda is a goddamn panda, and the King just, well, acts as the foil to everyone.

    I'll be honest that I haven't written much aside from that there's different fast food franchises as the worlds and all of them want to shoot each other. It's not the most complex world, I'll admit, but I've actually been wondering what to do with the other 40k factions.
    Since the Chaos Space Marines are the space marines But Different, I was thinking of making them all vegetarians, but at this point, I'm all ears for anything.

    Well, we had our first mission tonight. It wasn't anything special, just an introduction to the game system and the basics of roleplaying. The difference between IC and OOC, stuff that's cool to do and not cool, respecting other players, don't be That Guy, and etc.
    The kids are still getting the hang of the difference between IC knowledge and OOC knowledge, but for the most part they're behaving. Considering all the horror stories of kids at the RP table, I'm glad I got a reasonable batch.
    Storytime coming soon once I write it up.

    Anyway. Once we finally got to roleplay, the scenario was simple. Ronald, Panda, King, and Sanders were holed up in the middle of a mountain, preparing their latest assault on a Papa John's fortress so they could take his cheese for themselves, bolstering up their food with extra gooeyness. The Panda didn't actually need the cheese, but nobody really cared.
    Shortly after introducing their characters to each other, a messenger stumbled in, saying that their position was compromised and a pepperoni force had infiltrated the base.

    Sanders would not have it. He promptly stood up and grabbed his Mustard Bolter. "Friends, it seems we have people that want to interrupt us. I do not like my friends being interrupted! I say we go out there and shoot them!"
    King raised his (her) hand. "But shouldn't we try and talk with them? What if they just want to make a team, like we did?"
    Ronald said "Infiltration makes for funny teams."
    Sanders promptly kicked open the door and stormed outside into the hallway. "Papa John's people do not want to say hello. They are a rude and nasty lot. They only want to get shot! And I will give them what they want, because I am a Colonel and I like to give!"
    >> Anonymous 11/14/11(Mon)22:24 No.16938537
    I expected a little more planning, so I said that there was already a large army in the hallway that was charging them with their weapons raised. The hallways were pretty big and tall (note that this fact bites me in the ass later), so it was a decent-sized force.
    Sanders thought for a moment (Ronald made a typical "don't hurt yourself" quip), then promptly gathered up some of the munitions that were around the room. Logically, there wasn't really any time to grab them, but I let them scrounge. There were some rockets, some keys to vehicles outside, lots of grenades, a few Bolters of different flavors, and a couple food guards that were sitting in protecting them...nothing much. Just some random stuff.

    So what do they do?
    They take Sander's food guards, large chickens, and strap the goddamn rockets on to them, and have them carry the grenades. They then send their kamikaze chicken-grenade-rocket-squad out into the hallway, and Sanders covers the doorway with two bolters and the rest of the food guards, ordering the others to check out the nearby rooms for more supplies. Then screams "Get on out here you stupid people so I can shoot you a lot!"
    >> Anonymous 11/14/11(Mon)22:26 No.16938550
    The next room, I rolled to see what it was, and it was the hangar. Basilisks, Centaurs, Chimeras, even a Ragnarok. All of them were broken down and being repaired, though--I didn't want to give the kids such powerful stuff right out of the gate, and I figured that since they didn't have a Tech that they wouldn't try to fix it and drive.
    I forgot that I was dealing with kids that did not have their driver's license. Driving them was not the first thing on their mind.
    Sanders eventually caught up to them, having run out of ammo (and then threw his guns at them), though he made a serious dent in the approaching force. He asks me to describe the vehicles, then gets the biggest grin.

    He suggests throwing the goddamn Centaur down the hall like a missile.
    King points out that A: We did not have the physical strength to pick up the Centaur, and B: They could be repaired later and it wouldn't be fixable if we destroyed it so. Ronald says that fixing it will be hard if they're dead, and Sanders says that if we can't throw it then they could at least push it.
    "It hurts when people get run over, right?"
    Well, uh, kinda, yeah.
    "If we push it like it's driving, we can fool them into running away, because nobody wants to get run over."
    Ronald pipes in again. "Can we push fast enough to make it like it's driving?"
    King doubts. So Sanders tells Panda to get up on the hood and "act really scary" while they push.
    >> Anonymous 11/14/11(Mon)22:27 No.16938561

    Well, I had already painted myself into a corner by saying that the halls and doors were big, so since saying the vehicles were to the floor would have been a cop-out, they all combine their rolls, succeed, and I let them go ahead with it. Panda promptly started roaring and snarling at the enemy forces while the other three (plus the remaining food guards) pushed the back of it, sending the entire thing through the hall like a giant goddamn vehicular battering ram, going until it crashed through the door on the other end.
    How did Panda get out? Well, she was a bear. So once there were no more enemies to roar at (and the door was in sight), she ripped through the Centaur's front, hacked through the engine, and came out the other end. It perhaps was not the most system-legal thing to do, but at that point I was laughing too hard to care.
    There weren't very many remaining pepperoni forces after that, and Sanders rounded them all up.
    Now we have a gigantic batch of prisoners, a completely destroyed Centaur, no ammo or guns for Sanders (though now he's considering picking up the bound/captive pepperoni men and using them as cudgels), and a blown sneak attack by Papa John.

    We're going to pick up again this weekend, and Sanders wants our engineers to construct a catapult "big and strong enough" for the Ragnarok. I said no.
    So now Sanders wants catapults for Panda's food soldiers, which are more pandas. Specifically, he wants to catapult Chinese pandas through Papa John's windows and create a diversion while they infiltrate through the front door and shoot everyone.

    I'm not sure how to respond to this.

    On the plus side, everyone's really into it. They really like being different characters, and they're eager to roll the dice for anything and everything--even right after they get bad results.
    I'm a little worried I'm giving them too much leeway in what they can do, but so far nobody's been asking for impossible things, so.

    So, that was my day, /tg/.
    I GM'd a Deathwatch game about fast food for four 10-to-12-year-olds, and got to watch chicken kamikazes and a panda-accented tank battering ram in action.

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to have a burger.

    You need to have the catapulted pandas get thwarted or it will become the go-to tactic. I cannot even conceive of a way to do so, however.

    Maybe with extra-large deep fryers? Where the hell would Papa John's get a deep fryer? How about those Sub Toaster thingies? What Sub chain has a known mascot? Team him up with the Papa.

    Additionally, beware the Colonel. He has reinforcements in the form of Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Long John Silver!

    Well, I did say the next session was this weekend.
    Though, uh. I do have another story to say now.

    So, the Panda-niece has been talking about how she discovered this new hobby called role-playing.
    Apparently several of her less-savory classmates overheard her.
    When I picked her up, she was filthy, bruised, matted, and crying. She had been bullied by a batch of punks who were making fun of her and picked on her for playing "fake pretend" and "Devils and Dorks".

    I'd heard tales of parents that do irrational things when seeing their kits hurt. Hell, I was just her uncle, I wasn't even her parent. But right there I wanted to hunt down those motherfuckers and curb stomp them.
    Instead, I took her home and started patching her up. My sister (her mother, obviously) is on the phone with the principal now, ask what the fuck is up with the teachers not noticing the bruises and crying kid on their front goddamn step.

    After tending to her scrapes and cuts, though, I asked if she wanted to continue. The last thing I wanted was to give people a reason to pick on her.
    She didn't even hesitate before shaking her head. "Just 'cause someone don't [sic] like it, I don't care. I want to have fun. I don't have to do what they say, do I?"

    She's already had her first encounter with Stop Liking What I Don't Like, and doesn't care. I have never been more proud, /tg/.
    Well, I'm not proud of the bruises and cuts, mind. But haters gonna hate, I guess.

    OK, listen up OP, because this is a VITAL LIFE SKILL I am about to talk about.

    The time has come for you to teach your niece how to kick some ass. To start with, you need her to learn how to throw a punch. Do you know how to do that?

    Next up, teach her when she should stop fighting once she has gotten in a fight. To do that, show her the old Conan movies. The ones with Schwarzenegger in them. When he gets to the "What is best in life?" bit, that is when you stop.

    Then, she needs to learn how to get out of trouble. There are two ways to learn this: from you, or by getting INTO trouble, and lots of it. Good Luck.

    OP, I salute you.

    I'm a proud uncle myself, though my brother's oldest is only five right now. Not quite old enough to be introduced to an extremely watered down system I've been setting up just for her and her brothers. But she loves to play make believe, and I've taken to introducing certain basics into our play. She absolutely loves it, and has a lot of fun. I thought the hardest part would be introducing the possibility of failure. Things like missing, getting hurt (pretend hurt, of course), or failing at certain tasks. When I think of childish make believe, I think about kids being more super than Superman, and arguing about how no, you got hurt and not me because I deflected it. Not with my niece, she takes to both success and failure with gusto. God, I can't wait to introduce her to some dice mechanics.

    God, I was worried, I'll admit, that I wouldn't be able to pull off a good uncle. That I'd be like my own uncle, that is distant and forgettable to the point that I have to remind myself that he is even family. But I think I'm doing okay. She can't simply say 'Uncle Josh.' It's always " 'cle J'sh, 'cle J'sh, 'cle J'sh!" rapid-fire enthusiasm, or a long, drawn out "Uncle Jooooooosh!"

    Bah, OP, you make me look like a fool and I'm Polish, so that's saying something. Somehow, I've managed to instill interest in traditional games, or at least have played a small part in instilling such interest, in several of my cousins despite never really getting past chargen or the rare first session.

    Maybe it's the profusion of "let's try this now" resets or the unbriddled enthusiasm I've rediscovered from my childhood, but whatever it is they seem to be more socially healthy than me while retaining a bit of respect for the unwashed masses of gamers. Or maybe they're just being nice to their weird older cousin... I don't really know, but you definitely put me to shame.

    I did not expect this kind of response. Thank you all.
    She's doing fine now, and I definitely will teach her how to throw a punch by the end of the day.

    Back to a previous subject, one thing I've been considering as per an anon's suggestion is expanding the world--giving each of the different races appropriate fluff, instead of just the Imperium of Food.
    If the Chaos Marines are vegetarians, what would, say, the Tau be? Or the Eldar? Or the other multitude of races?

    One thing I was thinking about Orks, since they're effectively beastly enough dudes, was replacing them with intelligent food-based monsters--half beast and half nommable delight.
    Succubus and sake becomes Sakebus, vampire and jelly become Jampire (inb4 Prequel), cheese and Cthulhu become Rind Flayer, etc, etc. I think this would fit the general incohesiveness of the Orks while still giving them plenty of personality.
    Any other suggestions you guys could come up with?

    A name? Well, uh, okay, I guess.

    That would probably be the quickest and easiest way to handle it, though technically there's a lot of fast food imitating other ethnicities. I suppose the Imperium of Food is a sort of jack-of-all-trades for everything--that's why they have the mascots and everyone else has fuck-all.

    >>so many other messages
    So, taking suggestions into account, here's the basic idea of factions. Open for suggestions for either alternate faction representations or finetuning what a faction represents.
    Imperium: Fast food industry, SPESS MUHREENS are Mascots, Emprah is...fuck if I know. Personification of customers?
    Chaos: Vegetarians
    Orks: Half-Food-Half-Humanoids-All-Fucking-Psycho-Hybrids
    'Nids: Celebrity chefs that have to use all of the flavors in the universe.
    Eldar: Prissy bitchtits that demand everything be from the best ingredients and costs at least half a world.
    Tau: ASIAN FOOD.
    Necrons: Damn if I know. One suggestion is Greek, but I don't really think "zombies" when Greek comes up.
