And then up comes Zafo

And I'm like, "Yo, Zafo. What's up?"
And he's like, "Nothin'"
And I'm like, "That's cool."

My blog's been a bit silent this last month. The main reason is because I haven't been doing much of note. I've been spending far too much time playing Travian, and Dope Wars.

I might be getting some Pandora-time next month when my friend hosts a goth-party. Some of the attendees will be ex-workmates. Some are friends, some are "people I know". It'll be the first time any of them have met Pandora and since I don't have to see them regularly any more I'm not worried if any are less than supportive. Should e fun though. And pictures will appear on my Flickr is I get any good ones.

In other news, I'm still tabletop gaming and we're still having fun with SLA Industries. We've now got an agent and our first sponsors (Flying Jelly Attack Confectionery and Track Optics). My character, Horse the 313 stormer, and the other stormer in the group (Mojo, a 714) are also desperately trying to get their agent to blag tickets to the première of Johnny SLA: The Movie (a propaganda cartoon series they are worryingly obsessed with!) Its very refreshing to play a character who believes every bit of propaganda and spin he is fed. Horse and Mojo get a lot of laughs by playing it completely straight-faced!

And finally; the Lock and Load Battle of the Bands has been postponed until summer. So no regular gigs for a while then. Bum!

And I'm, like, "yeah, whatever!"

[makes that W hand gesture] :D

The RP game sounds like it's working a treat. I remember really enjoying the SLA book. The artwork is excellent. There's also the whole MegaCity 1 vibe running through it too (or maybe that's just me).

The only thing that weirds me out about Stormers is this: wouldn't they drool a lot? :)

Lynn wins the cookie!

And yes they do. Mojo likes the free lollipops they have at reception at Third Eye News, but Horse can't eat them because 313s don't have lips and they make him drool too much

lol. Does that mean you never get tranny Stormers? I mean where would they put the lippy? :)

Talking of Megacity one, apparantly 2000AD are producing a PDF version to view on your mobile.

Heh. 2000 AD. Seems so long ago. ;D

Stormers are gender neutral by default. There was some experimentation by gender assigning Stormers (dunno if this is canon or my GM's idea) but it didn't work out so well: female stormers with PMT, male stormers with "the horn", the problem with vulnerable "dangly bits" etc.

There's nothing to stop a stormer wearing a skirt suit or a posh rock outside of operations, but most of the time its armour-only. Though again, there's nothing to stop you being sponsored by Maybelline or La Senza!
