Honestly, I'm not sure how my players would react to this. I'm sure a few would be leaning towards "Kill it with fire".

My characters are split. Most would leave it alone. One would write a list of questions for the all-knowing free spirit that only answers to spilled blood... and buying a MMG.

I'll tell you exactly how players would react.

Mage Character: "Shapechange spells, only 1,000 :nuyen: an hour."

Come on - since when did a player miss a chance to make money? These are people who get paid 20,000 :nuyen: for a mission and still loot the magazines from the security guards they kill. *sheesh*

In Shadowrun, that hardly moves the needle on the weirdness meter.

i view the furriecon as a great opportunity--one which requires a lot of cow crap and diesel fuel to take advantage of. i have, thus far, avoided the hell out of downtown.

Interestingly enough, I played a game once that involved the players having to infiltrate an exec's house while he was having a birthday party for his daughter. It was pretty funny having Killer B, legendary Street Samurai, have to dress as Bobo the Singing Clown and the Dwarven Merc dress like a racoon TV character.

In Shadowrun I'd suspect many people have cosmetic surgery to look like actual anthropamorphic animals. More desperate people go the whole 9 yards and loos a great deal of essence/bioindex becoming hermaphordite centuars with two penises.

The Sensible Erection RPG (serpg.com) has a level where you must kill all the furries in a furry con.

In the context of Shadowrun it could be a great way to get rid of the PCs' enormous stockpiles of ammunition on their character sheets. Make them burn through it all shooting the furries.

Ahem-

I do not advocate the massacre of a subgroup of humanity because I find their objectives and actions at times baffling and distasteful.

I was asking about the Weird-o-meter situations that you've dropped players into.

Although that shapechange spell idea is absolutely freaking brilliant.

Heh, could you imagine the utter confusion of an actual shapeshifter trying to get through that mob?

Confusion? Nonsense! What better way to hide than amongst all the wannabes? Is that the killer shapeshifter... Or is she just another boy dressed up as a catgirl?

Dude, one of the Shadowrun games at Gencon involves going to a Furry convention.

Good. Gods.

Ok, and I thought some of my ideas were a little weird.
Who thought it up?
More importantly, who had the gumption to run it, who was drunk enough to play, who survived and what were the, ahem, "civillian casualties"?

...wow. One day, I'll figure out this whole "burn the furries" thing. I mean, this is nowhere near as bad as some places I've seen. I once saw a thread on another forum where jokes about incest, pedophelia, rape, and snuff passed without comment, but one person spoke positively of furry and the thread erupted into a long anti-furry flamewar and demands that the person be kicked and/or banned.

What's so bad about people who like to RP anthropomorphic characters or dress up in stupid costumes?



But forget that. There was an actual topic, and I guess I'll reply to that like I intended to.

In one of my earliest games, I had a group of pranksters somehow get ahold of a chemical that reacted with the oils in (meta-)human skin to dye the skin a bright blue, and was very hard to remove. They wanted to spread it through the Seattle water system, but couldn't get into the treatment facility themselves.

Then there was this free spirit that had a unique spell that caused any number of random effects within it's radius (I had a table to roll on, mostly SURGE effects, if I recall). When it cast it, it wound up turning the decker/face into a woman. Then (though this was aprtially out of my hands) she and the (male) assassin went and got drunk together, and wound up back at the face's place. They're still dealing with the consequences of that night.

Oh, and the time a mage projected the rigger's mind (it was sort of like an astral quest, but took place entirely in dreams) into the dreams and memories of the deranged shaman of the group, to learn some things about the shaman's past. The rigger wound up going through the shaman's memories of being stuck in Bug City, fighting a blood mage, bizarre things seen in the astral, etc...

Its us making sure that furries are the dead bottem of the geek food chain. Dont worry, it will rub off eventually.

Yep, anything involving astral planes can be truly trippy f*cked up. "s why i love them so.

Google the word "yiff".

On second thought, no, don't nevermind, forget I said anything. =)

--

I can't really think of anything truly "wierd". Maybe that mall full of zombies?

Runners are hired to steal certain deposit boxes from a mall-based bank. Turns out there is a uber-force malevolent free spirit in the mall that looks like a cute puppy.

Once it started animating the dead bodies of mall-goers it had stashed away, and of the first runners that died, things got REALLY wierd. The runners did get a lot of milage out of using things from the sports shop and such in fighting back the zombie hordes.

Of the two runners that made it out, one did so by emptying an entire MGL-12 clip into a loading dock door. In his words, "I just wanted to get out."

=)

What's your point? There's Spock/Kirk slash, pictures of Jean Grey in the nude, roleplaying games with a statistic for penis size, ridiculous amounts of Rei pornography...
EVERY fandom has its sexual side.

Look - we're all familiar with what weirdness is on the internet. But when I say "My god, that's wrong," there are two general actions taken by those around me:

1: What are you looking at? <pause> "Ahhhhgh! God, My eyes!"
2: Grim-faced ignorance. They're not going to look, they're not even going to turn around. This second stage usually occurs after stage 1.

Kirk/Spock? Meh. I though the Autobot Christmas "special" was....weird. Fanboy pron - hell, what do we call the quite detailed description of Nadia's Lushious Gams? Furries - Heh, look up "Plushies." <-NOT SAFE for WORK, ever. Or around kids




The 'net is vast and deep. Sometimes things live there that should not.

There is a third response, a callous "I've seen worse."

The wierdest run I ever GM'd involved an initiation prank to join the Bozo's (prankster sprawl gang). The runners had to sneak into the Mayor's Executive building downtown, climb to the top of the dome, and replace one of the arms of the statue with one given to them by the gang leader. The arm was actually a remote-controlled cyber arm, with internally mounted cybersquirt, and the statue started flipping everyone off and squirting them with a dmso/lsd mixture the next day. Film of 'the assault on the dome' ran live on all the major networks.
