Yesno? Okay. Hinoron May 11, 2022 at 12:32 am 2 years ago Pet the scary attack beast. Give it a treat. Rub its tummy. Remember who its “owners” are; the most selfish little superficial shits in the galaxy. The big fella has probably never been pampered before in its life! rws May 11, 2022 at 12:37 am 2 years ago So have they forgotten the laser collar, or was it removed? Ada K May 11, 2022 at 7:59 am 2 years ago Chris has already done Little Dee, which is in my library’s children’s section. Jude May 12, 2022 at 1:43 am 2 years ago Not just for kids either! I loved Little Dee and felt sad she went home without her companions. Jude May 11, 2022 at 1:33 am 2 years ago Christopher: “I’ll bet that purple fella’ would make a nice pet if brought up right.” Me: “What! You think I’m rich? It’s enough to feed one extra mouth but three?!” Looking at that purple ‘wanna-be pet’, I think you should start writing and illustrating books for children. It wouldn’t take long before you eclipsed Maurice Sendak’s popularity. TB May 12, 2022 at 1:51 pm 2 years ago The beast does have a definite “Wild Things” vibe, doesn’t it? Rikard May 11, 2022 at 2:07 am 2 years ago Yep, that’s a good one right out of the GM’s handbook, that one is: if the PCs are standing about jabbering “Oh what to do? Oh but what if?” shovel some threat at them to prod them into action. Works the same in any media, doesn’t it? Show, don’t tell. Exposition via action, yes please and thank you! Oh and Jude’s cmment above about illustrating or writing books for kids is a gold nugget, it is! Your imagination for all creatures great and small should be shoe-in! Coyoty May 11, 2022 at 2:51 am 2 years ago Maybe it was too soon to suppress Ruddock’s laser and allergies. minando May 11, 2022 at 3:01 am 2 years ago Oh my. Even their Attack Beasts are cute. In a way. Sean K. May 11, 2022 at 8:20 pm 2 years ago It was a three-trunked, three-horned, angry, purple people-eater And no plan from me! Pete Rogan May 11, 2022 at 9:37 pm 2 years ago Well, so much for presuming the Stribs didn’t HAVE any attack beasts to throw at the humans. Now it’s improvisation city — and I have to agree that at this point treating it nicely might confuse it enough to make it forget it’s there to be a ravenous bloodthirsty monster. But my free hand is already tugging at my belt where I keep the flechette pistol. Wishing it was a Lensman-style Lewis blaster. The parasite is right; no time to do anything but improvise. But man, what a fight Bikkie’s missing! Night-Gaunt May 12, 2022 at 12:49 am 2 years ago Good idea melee attack beasts are a good idea. Even they have the Strib stamp of approval in their design. A carnivore that won’t hurt its creators. That weapons collar is needed right now. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
