Session 02 of the Pants Campers’ continued Tropis campaign, titled The Black Swan, features many exciting scenes – including a tantalizing glimpse of the amorous advances of a Swedish courtship ritual*. It also introduces one of the imposing superheroes of Tropis: Apologetic Batman.
*Turns out that Swedes are really turned on by filling in their paperwork, and filing things in triplicate. Truly, will the passion of these blue-and-yellow-spanked hedonists ever start? 😉February 24, 2014 at 8:41 am #644528
BTW, you should try to convince Alex’ girlfriend to do some Pants portraits of your characters, or whatever else. That chick’s got cr4zy l33t arty-chops. 🙂February 24, 2014 at 3:35 pm #644529
Re: Rosanna shaking her ‘yes’ – this is actually not a mistake, but in fact a sign of a very serious and dedicated method roleplayer. Jess’ character hails from the Tropis equivalent of a Soviet satellite state, quite possibly somewhere in the Balkans, and in those cultures it is quite common to shake your head to say ‘yes’, whilst nodding means ‘no.
(There’s a tense scene in the novel The Turkish Gambit where this custom causes some confusion re: the main character being used as the stakes in a game of cards, being gambled to win a donkey.)
Obviously, Rosanna was simply exhibiting a quaint cultural custom from her native region. 😉February 24, 2014 at 3:35 pm #644530
So what was up with all the drip-drop, drip-drop business, and the startling pussy (i.e. the cat that had been lurking in the castle)? Are you flexing your CoC-muscles in preparation for harder things to come?
(Also, the cherub bluebottles were plenty icky, but nowhere near as entertaining as the flying demon babies in Dragon’s Delve.) 🙂February 24, 2014 at 3:45 pm #644531
Yes. 😀February 24, 2014 at 3:49 pm #644532
