Venturing a proposal

Post by c_nordlander » Mon Sep 04, 2006 6:42 pm

Now we have this board, I'm having a slightly crazy idea... how about an online Venture Brothers RPG? I'd just love to roleplay one of those losers...
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!

That's a scay idea.

A wonderfully, hilariously scary idea.

I agree.  That would be insane.  So, of course, I'd love to see it!  Even take part in it!  I call Dr. Orpheus!

Hehe, you would!

If we were to do it, I'd probably be...I dunno, maybe Mr. White.  He's a fun supporting character.

Well, obviously I'd be the host handsome, intelligent and debonair character in the series.

I should have said this earlier, but I forgot: since the two previous RPGs on this board have been an "everyone is on the same side" one and an "everyone is fighting everyone else", how about the VB RPG set up like this:

There are two teams. You choose either to play as one of the good guys or as a Guild member or other villain. And... well. The team that eliminates the other somehow, wins.

Edit: and FYI, I call dibs on the Baron.

Somehow I'm not surprised.  I figured you'd play either the Baron or Molotov.  :P  ;D

I like the idea.  Dunno if I'll get into it, but if I do, I call dibs on THE MONARCH!

Somehow I get the feeling everyone will choose the bad side...

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett
