Make it a page where the only link is to this site and declare it the "the place at the end of TVTropes."

But then someone will make a Trope called an EndTrope with the definition is "any Trope that has no non-identical Tropes associated with it is an EndTrope."

However, upon becoming an EndTrope it loses its status as an EndTrope, then gains it again, then loses it again. The fact is, Endtropes can exist if and only if the concept of an Endtrope does not exist, which proves that a well designed concept can prevent something real from ever existing...

...I think I broke a part of reality.


Now let's figure out how to optimize this...

This thread needs to be moved to the Theoretical Optimization board. xD

Or we could just leave the board out of that site and retain a modicum of dignity?

Tshern, we're posting on a forum that belongs to a website about gaming podcasts. Mostly for tabletop games (especially DnD).


The only dignity we have left to claim is whatever's on BLYHT, and that isn't exactly dignified...
It could still draw in people, who frequent that site and the prospect is slowly killing me like a huge, aggressive tumour.
Ja vuosia myöhemmin
kalvas kaksikko lattialla motellin tihrustelee,
kun sama keiju katossa leijailee.
Kyselevät: "Mikä päivä nyt on?
Tiedätkö sen?"
Kuiskaten laulaa keiju:
"Tämän elämän viimeinen."

Soo?? Is someone going to put it up? I could give some other details about the podcast if someone made the page.

Seeing as this interests at least one of the Gameologists, I'll get started on it.


That's actually what I was waiting on: Approval from the head honchos.

So far, we have Giacomo, Oscalemo, and Sor0_Lost. Not to tempt fate, but how much worse can it get?

Wiki Vandals. TvTropes is home to a huge number of GiantITP members, some of whom may hold a grudge against us.

They are outclassed when it comes to trolling.

I'm more worried about them somehow finding a way to sick Rolland on us. I really like my account here.

??? Use a public computer and an alias, silly. And do NOT include a link to their page. Honestly, they won't care about what That_Baka_Monkey writes as long as it's not about them.
It always seems like the barrels around here have something in them.

What's Roland going to do, send use a harshly worded fax?

There aren't enough trees in the world for one of those.

Factual, yet non-inflammatory. 92/100 points.

The tier system in a nutshell:

Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

That would give him 2 points extra credit, for a final score of an A.

That's awesome!!  Thank you, the description is touching :)

The only point that could be clarified, but it's not a huge deal, is that I didn't leave voluntarily. Said new community manager publicly "fired" me with no warning. That's my perspective anyway, his side was that there was another applicant for the job of volunteer moderator for the d20 areas which included the CharOp board, and he announced in a thread (without prior consult or head's up) that the other guy got it and I was out of a post.

I was furious at the poor business practices and didn't care about the burned bridge I was leaving behind in calling him on it.

So I said "I'm out. I'm going to BG. If you want to come along, I'd be happy to have you"

And here we go.
Now comes the real question: how can we work Fistbeard Beardfist into it?

I'll fix that too. I'd like to be accurate with it.


Any objections to mentioning posters by screenname? I was half-tempted to put a direct reference to Kuro for his IHS shenanigans.

Methinks it's a little... "advertisement-y" right now (Using "we" is a big no-no...), and some of the tropes in that list are pretty forced. Eventually someone should point it out on the TVTropes forums for an outsider's perspective; leave it a while to grow first.

Referencing specific posters doesn't seem like a good idea, though you might be able to get away with stuff like "the creator of Fistbeard Beardfist".
