You have known of the slumbering sea since you were a child: a magical ocean where the islands themselves are dreams made real. It is well known that the sea is a strange and treacherous place, and common knowledge marks it as unmappable. You’re out to prove them wrong. You’ll be the first to map the slumbering sea, or you’ll die trying.
Your quest starts on the Shores of Dream, a small settlement that serves as the divide between the sea and reality. To fund your crew and your ship, you have taken on two passengers, the Sensible Doctor (a native of the Shores of Dream who wants to find her father out at sea) and the Zealous Scholar (a manic woman wishing to catalog creatures native to this sea). You are fully stocked, manned, and ready to begin your journey.

You are Captain Kusajishi Riku, of the Ninth Guard Division.
After your borderline treasonous day yesterday, you've managed to get at least a little bit of rest before your first full day as a Captain. Instead of practicing your sword technique this morning, you're obliged to read over the Divisional policies as they were put in place by your predecessor, Captain Muguruma, in order to figure out how to run your unit. Yoruichi curls up next to you in her unobtrusive feline form, just in case you find yourselves interrupted by official business, while you read over page after page of notes.
“So, what exactly did I do to you back then?” you muse as you shut the cover of a list of publishing guidelines and regulations for the Shinigami news magazine's printing office. “You know, while I was a Hollow?”
Yoruichi's ears lay flat for a moment as she recalls the event, despite clearly understanding the importance of knowing exactly what these new abilities of yours can do. “I saw two unusual things,” she replies in her strangely gravelly, masculine voice. “One was a compressed, bullet-like cero that I didn't give you the chance to use.”
“Like a bullet?” you repeat, looking over a document detailing patrol schedules and sector-based deployments.
Yoruichi raises her head to look at you. “Yes. It wasn't much bigger around than your fingertip, but was extremely dense and powerful. Quite the deadly little trick if you could ever replicate it.”
You nod, mentally noting how appropriate it is that an ability like that would belong to someone with your history. “You said there were two?”
“I did,” Yoruichi replies. “The second is more difficult to understand. When I cut you, towards the end of your rampage, your blood was infused with a dangerous amount of reiatsu. Needless to say, I didn't cut you again after that.”
Republic Commando Quest 17

"Fan out! Find Yna!" The order is heard clearly over the comm, despite the heavy rain and thundering lightning in the background, "Joker, can you track Yna's comm signal?" You turn to Joker before he can rush off like the rest of your squad. They know not to engage the enemy while the squad is divided and searching for the sixth drop pod. Hopefully they'll be able to avoid any enemy contact for now. If Yna cannot be found, you're not sure what you're going to do. Sierra Squad was ordered to report to Shaak Ti immediately upon landing, but you can't just leave Yna behind. That wouldn't only sit right with Joker, but you wouldn't forgive yourself for giving up on a team member.
"I'll try, sir." Joker sounds agitated and stressed, but he keeps his cool for now as he starts to work on his wrist-mounted data module. While your Commandos are busy trying to find Yna, your gaze trails across the battlefield that is your home. There are many arching pathways and bridges leading through and around the many dome structures and the platforms around the facilities. The whole city stands on thick tiles reaching deep into the ocean below it. Lightning rods stands vigilantly in the rain on the platforms, catching lightning from time to time. All around you there are constant firefights between your clone brothers and CIS forces. You restrain yourself from joining their fight. You have a different role to play in the defense of Kamino.
"There's a lot of interference to the comm signal, Chief." Joker reports through the comm from where he stands, overlooking this side of the city, "Her signal is bouncing between Level Nine, Cargo Platform C-22, and Landing pad E-40. What are your orders?"
>Cargo Platform C-22
>Landing pad E-40

Anyone else really love playing NPCs? It's one of my favorite parts of GM'ing. And I'm not talking about having a DMPC, I mean genuinely enjoying getting into character as the random folks your party comes across, even simple unimportant characters like a nameless town guard. It's just some random nameless NPC the party encounters, and by the time they're done talking to him he's got a name, a family, a personality, hopes and dreams (well, maybe not for long considering he's in close proximity to PCs...), etc.
Anyone else like this? A lot of NPCs I've seen in other games were just soulless shells that exist simply to exist which isn't fun at all for me. What are your thoughts on NPCs /tg/? What were your favorite NPCs you've encountered or made? How did the party react to them?
Pic vaguely related.
Exalted Quest (Session 73)

Rolling around briefly in the blankets, you stare idly at the incomplete vaulted ceiling above you for a few seconds, following the lines of the marble aiming to intersect at the very top of the room.
You breathe in deeply, stand up from your bed (a temporary one, brought from Tianna), and, with one last glance at the shapely silhouette of Ririth sleeping soundly, step away from it.
The "bedroom" is, for now, rather empty, featuring merely the aforementioned bed along with a desk and few chairs, a small cupboard, and a chest stuffed in a corner. All together they utterly fail to occupy all the space the Manse's blueprints have allocated.
It's not even meant to BE your bedroom, actually, but, until that's completed, you guess you'll just sleep in whatever unoccupied space you can wrangle out of the messy construction yard that is the Manse of Pearl right now.
"You certainly work hard and play hard, mistress Maka." Millian's deadpan voice greets you as she creaks the door open, pushing a small cart loaded with a seriously oversized breakfast: a basket of freshly baked bread (some of it sliced into tuna sandwiches), a glass of milk and one of orange juice, eggs and bacon, a cup of coffee, chicken breast with roasted potatoes, and a bowl of salad. "Good thing you sometimes remember to rest as well."
"Isn't this a bit much?" You have to wonder, staring at the mountain of food your maid is literally pushing onto you.
"When was the last time you ate a decent meal?" She asks you back.
You start thinking about it.
"See?" She points out. "So, you better at least have a decent breakfast. I think it's going to be a busy day."

You startle awake in a field of tall grass, looking around wildy. You last remember going to sleep in your own bed, and you've never seen grass this tall, so you have no idea where you are. You quickly assess yourself. No injuries, and you don't feel dizzy. Doesn't seem like anyone drugged you or knocked you out.

>What the fuck is Space Station 13
A top down atmospherics simulator with a "whodunit" on top. Survive in the station and do your department's job, while fixing the problems that the antagonists cause.
>How the fuck do I play this game? I keep hitting myself with things.
Use OOC and ask someone for help on how to play. People will almost always help you get a grip of the game if you're polite about it, just don't reveal too much in-round information in OOC.
>Hey /tg/ station I...
We are a separate entity from /tg/ station, we just host our threads on /tg/ as the server was made by fa/tg/uys for elegan/tg/entlemen.
We occassionally run Dorfstation mode, a roundtype where the crew must build up from a bare-bones station. Dorf is usually run Friday evenings, around 4-7 PM EST.
>How is this station different from [station]?
Join the server and read the rules and changelog (located at the top right of the game window). The changelog has been cleaned up to show changes starting from the base code of the /nt/ branch.
Code branch from NT (also named d20Station) is updated a few times every week with fixes and new content.
If you have a bug, contact an admin in-game or on the thread to report it.
Note: This is NOT SS13 general.

>Last thread, we chased down a rogue psyker, eventually capturing him. Calling himself Septimus, this psyker says he is searching for something called 'the source' on our planet, believing it to be the cause of all of our recent troubles and has pledged loyalty to us. Skeptical, we called in the ecclesiarchy to interrogate Septiumus and make sure he was clean on any heresy.

I love the blood elves' homeland from World of Warcraft. An eternally autumn forest of winding paths, beautiful architecture, crystals, and phoenix motifs everywhere. It's great. I want to use that for my setting.
How do people go about taking stuff that they love from other media, distilling it to the good parts, and then finding out how to make it into something new without ruining what you love about it in the first place?
Also Worldbuilding Thread ready go.
