ONE MORE TIME NOW!

I'm gonna send out confirmations for next weekend (yeah, again, sorry!) and I have all the gorram roles written up and everything should be splendiferous. Sickness and then midterms really knocked me for a doozy this past week. Apologies for my carelessness!

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for the winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns. And also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

If you like Futurama, or enjoying life, or anything else, join this game. Be warned, however, if you do not properly enjoy this game (ie posting only once a day to vote), I will rain judgement down like Brains seeking to eliminate all knowledge in the universe.

Everybody will be a character from Futurama. This game will be run very much like the Gauntlet game, except it will be simpler. The powers will mostly be ridiculous, and possibly not even useful. Especially Dr. Zoidberg's.

The story, like most futurama episodes, won't have much of a point. But I will throw in as many Futurama jokes, references, and flavor as I can.

Some Mechanics
Personal Powers- everyone will have them, most will be dumb
Personal victory conditions- I love em
Items- not particularly important, but present
Money- ties in with items
Special Events- plot devices to make things happen
Cassandra Chat System- I'm running out of incentives here

Items (note, most of these will be useless):
Beer- duh
Smokes- duh
Coffee- duh
$300 Buglary Kit- duh
Finest Cigar Ever- duh
TV- duh
Holophonor- music
The PROBULATOR- "that wasn't so bad"
Suicide Booth- only 25 cents! (I don't expect this to get used much)

Professor's Inventions (all of these will be useless):
Albino shouting Gorillas
The Death Clock
Electronium Hat
F-Ray
Fing longer
Anti-Pressure Pills ("it's a suppository")
The Coolometer (measures in MegaFonzies")
Smell-o-scope
Universal Translator
The Who-Ask Machine
Machine That Can Make Anybody Sound Like The Professor

Plus it's the best television show that has ever aired, animated or not. So join.

Initially allowing 16:
1) Royalflush- Bender
2) Xandryyte- Leela
3) Le_cygne- Fry
4) Gregarius- The Professor
5) Genghis- Hermes
6) MoonGoddess- Amy
7) Scotty_Bomb- Zapp Brannigan
8) DragonBane- Lrrr
9) Praisechick- Mom
10) CapAp- MORBO
11) gjanse- Horrible Gelatinous Blob
12) Beowulf
13) -Johnny-
14) Kuchick
15) wiz8mom
16)Esuh- Zoidberg

Bite my shiny, metal ass!



Maybe you can interface with my ass! By biting it!




As for why I didn't pick Zoidberg: Because he's a loser, that's why. He's the lobster equivalent of Fry.

Re: WW: Futurama (Mid-Late Feb)
GOOD NEWS EVERYONE, I've signed up on Cassandra!

I'd like to be Zapp Brannigan, but if we're short on the "must have" characters I'll call Scruffy and Hermes in that order.

Also, I think Qubert Farnsworth should be available. He IS the Professor's clone. Also Nibbler, if we're fighting Brains.

I've filled out the required forms in septuplicate, stamped each six times, and have each initialed thrice by one lower level, and two higher level bureaucrats.

Hermes Conrad is here.

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

Munchwolf:

I was going to make Robot Devil the Villain, but if you want him he's up for grabs

I forgot about Hedonismbot and I am definitely adding him to the list.

You cannot be Lucy Liu, as she's not even a minor character, but Richard Nixon is fine

You have dibs on all three before the go up on the list.

I would think Mom & her sons would make more villainous villains.

Or you could have the villains the people from the dimension where coin flips came up opposite (so they are trying to destroy this dimension before we destroy them)

Anyway, other minor characters not listed:

Nibbler
Cubert Farnsworth - the Professor's clone
Dwight Conrad - Hermes' Son
LaBarbara Conrad - Hermes' Wife
Cookieville orphans
Elzar - BAM
Hyperchicken - I say, the defense rests ... BWOCK
Mayor C. Randall Poopenmayer
Sal
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_recurring_non-robot_cha...

Calculon
Planet Express Ship- come on .. Bender has a relationship with her .. several times ...
Flexo - Bender's good twin
The Robot Mafia - Give him the clamps, Clamps - possible villain
Robot Santa - Hohoholocaust - now there would also be a good villain
Tinny Tim
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_recurring_robot_charact...


And for really obscure characters that I can't see BPD ever allowing:
