[12:09:25] <open_sketch> beeeeeeep
[12:10:29] <Bronzdragon> Herro open_sketch!
[12:10:39] <Bronzdragon> Fancy seeing you here.
[12:10:44] <open_sketch> yeah i just remembered this exists
[12:10:46] <hitstun> Hi! I just woke up
[12:10:50] <open_sketch> hit!
[12:10:53] <Bronzdragon> =O what is this?!
[12:10:54] <open_sketch> hi!
[12:11:00] <hitstun> Good timing, right?
[12:11:02] <open_sketch> more than two people on whaaaaaaa
[12:11:27] <Bronzdragon> Well, this is nice
[12:11:54] <open_sketch> yeah there's ACTIVITY
[12:11:59] <open_sketch> kinda :P
[12:12:08] <Bronzdragon> Indeed.
[12:12:15] <hitstun> Three active chatters is activity here
[12:12:23] <open_sketch> the other IRC i spend a lot of time on is really active so i keep forgetting this one exists
[12:12:46] <hitstun> Anyway, I totally just posted a Laibach song on my Wordpress last night
[12:12:56] <Bronzdragon> A what now?
[12:13:05] <open_sketch> who to the whatnow?
[12:13:11] <hitstun> https://www.youtube.com
[12:13:15] <hitstun> Gah, timestamp
[12:13:55] <hitstun> See, Geeknights played their version of 2525 at the end of a few episodes earlier this year
[12:14:18] <hitstun> Since then, I actually found a couple Laibach albums in a local record store
[12:14:39] <hitstun> And found that the cover album with 2525 also covers Europe's The Final Countdown
[12:14:51] <hitstun> And the video for that is totally 1994 CG
[12:15:52] <open_sketch> lol. i'm generally pro terrible 90s CG
[12:15:58] <open_sketch> so i will check this out shortlylike
[12:16:00] <Bronzdragon> Aye.
[12:16:31] <open_sketch> what you been up to bronz?
[12:17:19] <Bronzdragon> Not much, working.
[12:17:31] <Bronzdragon> I work for the IBM call centre.
[12:17:34] <Bronzdragon> How may I help you today?
[12:17:43] <open_sketch> lol
[12:18:00] <open_sketch> did they try turning it off and on again?
[12:18:03] <Bronzdragon> Yesterday, we moved from the old building to the new.
[12:18:15] <Bronzdragon> Oh man, turning it off and on again works SO OFTEN.
[12:18:24] <Bronzdragon> If it's not an account lock, that is.
[12:18:38] <Bronzdragon> Also, nobody wants to give you their username.
[12:18:44] <open_sketch> of course not
[12:18:51] <Bronzdragon> Oh well.
[12:20:39] <open_sketch> i have been motoring away on the third draft of my new RPG
[12:20:43] <hitstun> I just started at DSW's service desk this week
[12:20:44] <open_sketch> i'm running a bunch of playtests today
[12:20:51] <open_sketch> so of course i'm changing everything at the last minute
[12:22:19] <open_sketch> i hate fiddling with the numbers in points-buy systems bleh :/
[12:25:10] <open_sketch> maybe i should just make everyone roll 3d6 five times and drop the lowest for each stat set :P
[12:25:48] <Bronzdragon> Do you know how you balance prices?
[12:26:07] <Bronzdragon> Every time someone buys something, it gets 1 dollar pricier until everything is bought about equally.
[12:26:33] <open_sketch> hehehe
[12:26:43] <open_sketch> i'm not really having much trouble with the like
[12:26:47] <open_sketch> items and feature stuff?
[12:27:02] <open_sketch> its the stat block stuff
[12:27:47] <open_sketch> the characters have eight ability stats split into two sets, plus two additional stats that regulate their power level basically (it's a magical girl game so transforming and resolve and shit are all included)
[12:27:47] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[12:28:09] <open_sketch> suck it, robot!
[12:44:15] <hitstun> A magical girl RPG, eh?
[12:44:26] <open_sketch> yes
[12:44:27] <open_sketch> its
[12:44:37] <Bronzdragon> It's...
[12:44:43] <open_sketch> uh, i've discribed it as the dark kingdom arc of sailor moon meets revolutionary politics
[12:44:43] <hitstun> Somehow I don't think I've seen a magical girl RPG before
[12:44:47] <Bronzdragon> Monthy Python's flyyyyyying circus!
[12:44:51] <hitstun> and I've seen two maid RPGs
[12:44:56] <open_sketch> there is one i know of
[12:44:59] <open_sketch> called Magical Burst
[12:45:07] <open_sketch> and this is written somewhat in response to that
[12:45:37] <open_sketch> because that game is a "dark" take, which here means it's just Madoka Magica without understanding the social background of magical girl shows OR the commentary inherent in madoka
[12:45:44] <open_sketch> so instead it's just Suffering Moeblob The Game
[12:45:55] <open_sketch> and i was like, man fuck that
[12:45:56] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[12:46:25] <open_sketch> so mine is kickass revolutionary Magical Grrrls punching the dark kingdom with super cool magic
[12:49:24] <open_sketch> uh, sort of the basic idea is that it's the dark kingdom arc of sailor moon except that the humans overthrowing Silver Millenium were totes justified because the queen was mad evil, and her sealing away the rebels basically stole humanity's natural magic
[12:49:37] <open_sketch> and now its the modern day and you play the Sailor Insurgents :P
[12:50:31] <Bronzdragon> Hey, Aria is making me not hang out in IRC.
[12:50:34] <Bronzdragon> So I gotta go.
[12:50:40] <Bronzdragon> I'll catch ya later, I hope.
