[06:00:23] <Bronzdragon> Good morning!
[06:35:53] -!- aria [aria!aria@hide-B7608711.emea.ibm.com] has joined #geeknights
[06:35:56] <aria> Hello
[06:41:38] <GauntletWizard> morn, bronz
[06:41:59] <GauntletWizard> it might just be bootcamp...
[06:42:12] <GauntletWizard> (Facebook's six week engineering intro)
[06:42:40] <GauntletWizard> but Facebook seems far more a party company than Google
[06:43:02] <GauntletWizard> which is to say, I've been drunk a lot recently
[06:51:45] <Bronzdragon> Is that a good thing?
[06:55:01] <open_sketch> lol
[07:34:56] -!- Apsup [Apsup!~Aleksi@hide-B4B1B39B.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights

[08:05:50] <Bronzdragon> Hey Apsup
[08:10:57] <Apsup> Mornin
[08:34:41] <aria> Do you guys eat 5 fruits a day?
[08:41:32] -!- MrBRAD has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[08:46:43] <Apsup> No
[08:49:55] <aria> But then you'll die! D=
[08:51:08] <Apsup> :[
[08:51:11] <Apsup> Such if life.
[08:51:39] <Apsup> But seriously, what kind of studen't could even afford 5 fruits a day.
[08:51:44] <Apsup> Those things cost money.
[08:52:10] <Apsup> Maybe if you went with small, tiny fruits.
[08:58:33] <Bronzdragon> 5 grapes.
[10:58:22] <open_sketch> technically
[10:58:27] <open_sketch> a strawberry's seeds
[10:58:30] <open_sketch> are each individual fruits
[10:58:51] <open_sketch> and the strawberry as a whole is some kind of fruit delivery medium
[11:10:32] <Bronzdragon> Hmm...
[11:10:37] <Bronzdragon> Excelent!
[11:10:58] <Bronzdragon> I feel like consuming several hundred strawberry fruits now.
[11:39:59] <open_sketch> so do i
[11:40:07] <open_sketch> though i have just raspberries on hand
[11:40:10] <open_sketch> which are also great!
[12:05:07] <Bronzdragon> Man, those are good!
[12:06:53] <open_sketch> you know what the best part about writing a magical girl rpg is
[12:07:01] <open_sketch> getting to draw cool magical girl designs
[12:07:02] <open_sketch> http://i.imgur.com
[12:10:11] <Bronzdragon> That's surprisingly well-armoured.
[12:12:42] <open_sketch> im doing all the different costume kits like... sort of an illustration of all the bits
[12:13:01] <open_sketch> a huge part of picking your powers is basically mixing and matching costume bits
[12:13:26] <open_sketch> from themed packs of them, often based on famous shows and stuff
[12:13:39] <open_sketch> this is the magical knight kit, which is all the tanky stuff
[12:14:01] <open_sketch> http://i.imgur.com
[12:14:46] <open_sketch> there's twenty kits total because i really, really wanted to make sure you could play just about any kind of magical girl you wanted
[12:15:49] <Bronzdragon> That's a lot more like I actually imagined magical girls being.
[12:15:57] <open_sketch> there's like, you know, sailor moon-ish ones as sort of a basic one, and a princess serenity look for the dedicated casters, and super cutesy cardcaptor sakura stuff for the healers and stuff
[12:15:58] <Bronzdragon> And that's a pretty cool concept.
[12:16:42] <open_sketch> and also punk magical grrrls and nerdy hacker kits with tron effects and utena-style military lookin' uniforms
[12:17:02] <Bronzdragon> This is the sort of game I can get behind!
[12:17:23] <open_sketch> my favourite kit is basically like... the gun otaku milspec kit because it has the best name ever
[12:17:30] <open_sketch> "Sailor Team Six"
[12:18:49] <open_sketch> so each of these illustrations is sort of the pure form of that type, but the actual characters people play will typically mix and match
[12:19:57] <Bronzdragon> I like to imagine a girl in tutu with military cap and armoured shins.
[12:20:04] <open_sketch> hehehe
[12:20:05] <Bronzdragon> It looks cool and dumb in my mind's eye.
[12:20:14] <open_sketch> one of the best examples of that is there's a playtest character
[12:20:30] <open_sketch> who is kitted out basically just to protect her friends
[12:20:44] <open_sketch> the character's personality is this kind of fearful like... scaredy cat type
[12:21:04] <open_sketch> and their kit is half armoured stuff, half support caster
[12:21:09] <open_sketch> and her weapon is a giant two-handed shield
[12:21:45] <open_sketch> her entire playstyle is to find comrades in trouble and heal them while protecting them from danger
[12:22:22] <open_sketch> so the costume bits are like... madoka-y puffy dress, little butterfly pins, giant leather boots, steel paldrons...
[12:23:02] <Bronzdragon> That sounds like an interesting character.
[12:23:37] <open_sketch> im super happy with the way that peoples characters are shaking out
[12:24:20] <open_sketch> even the people who just make the cheesiest fucking bullshit trying to break the system have put out characters who have like... some cool personality to them
[12:24:39] <open_sketch> (in part because you essentially fill out a personality test in putting the characters together)
[13:24:50] <open_sketch> http://i.imgur.com
[13:56:08] <Bronzdragon> So you're making a proper book 'n stuff!

[14:09:10] <Bronzdragon> Hello yoshokatana .
[14:09:38] <yoshokatana> morning
[14:22:34] <Apsup> Evening.
[14:24:49] <Bronzdragon> I was supposed to have training 24 minutes ago until 6 minutes from now.
[14:26:35] <Apsup> It seems that it's postponed.
[14:26:46] <Bronzdragon> It was tomorrow...
[14:26:49] <Bronzdragon> Phew!
[14:27:05] <Apsup> It is, unless you are time traveller.
[14:27:50] <Apsup> or is it, it will be.
[14:28:17] <Bronzdragon> ... yes, that.
