For years it's been joked about that someone should make an RPG based on the RPGFan crew.  And now, it has happened!  Ashton, you rule!  I don't know why, but the ribbon bit struck me as amusing.  

Man, it's even better than this (It's the "RPG cliche" round robin that evolved into a surprisingly good story): http://www.rpgfan.com/boards/index.php?topic=8002.0 (And, yes, I definitely had too much fun writing Taressa)

It's almost as good as Xenodurr: http://www.whatdoesgodneedwithastarship.com/

I approve of this nonsense! All of it!  

EDIT: Maybe a Suikoden let's play with each of us as a star of destiny.  Or Chrono Cross with its ginormous cast.

Is that a Baldur's Gate portrait? Looks familiar...

I think Yoda imagines Dincrest as an attractive amazon warrior.

I think Yoda wants an amazon warrior.

Hell I think I'd like me an amazon warrior.

TASTY!

Well he is the chick of these boards.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

...

(Okay okay, I get it.  And hey, what's an RPG without ellipses?)

At least I'm portrayed as a warrior and not a "sandwich bitch" to quote some of the early chapters in Akashik: http://apocalypsewriters.com/akashik/

Oddly enough, I was actually going to ask the question of "if we were a JRPG, what archetype would we fall into?"  I'd like to think I'd be that JRPG sidekick who flirts shamelessly with all the attractive women (PC or NPC) but gets shot down all the time.  Doesn't stop trying, though.

The team finds a con artist peddling a faerie. Parn is fascinated by faeries. It comes in a bottle. Eusis spends most of his time during the traversal between the caravan and the next town tormenting the creature, screaming "HEY LISTEN" to it when it least suspects.

I LOL'd at this. Hard.

I'm surprised he didn't make a joke about wanting to boot the fairy out of the far more valuable bottle.

Step 1: Reincarnate off the table as a parrot.
Step 2: Follow the White Mage around for the rest of her life.
Step 3: Proceed to squawk 'Awrk! Life 3! Awrk! Life 3!' the rest of her days to remind her which magic she should've cast first thing.

You keep fairies in bottles to avoid crap like that.

That is hardly crap my friend. You have the same killing power as a house cat only you get a natural fly speed and pretty good maneuverability. You could completely rule any farm village you want as their parrot-y overlord, claiming to be a demon-bird from hell. And have your guilt tripped White Mage come in an 'exorcize' you from the place in exchange for bags of gold. Sounds like a good deal to me. XD

You have White Magic of your own don't you? You can take care of yourself.

But fine, if you insist you can keep your stinkin' fairy. Just keep in mind that the next time you need to bring a fish with you to open up the next dungeon that I told you so.
