  1. Caillou's Ebolaween 2014

    This is hilariously dirty.
  2. Actually splitting it up like that was my brother's idea, not mine.
  3. My brother and I were working on a magic system for a Tabletop RPG, and we hit a little snag. When discussing spells regarding plants and metal, we weren't able to decide if we should make Wood and Metal their own elements, or if we should have it so that some plant spells would fall under Earth, while others would fall under Water, and that some metal spells would fall under Fire, and others under Earth. So, do we go with a 5-element system (Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Spirit) or a 7-element system (Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Wood, Metal, Spirit)?
  4. Okay, given that we see that Disney's new canon has significantly nerfed Star Wars firepower (not counting superweapons like the Death Star or Starkiller Base), well, we have to ask ourselves - which sci-fi universes can Star Wars defeat in ship-to-ship firepower? Here are my guesses: Star Wars can defeat: Firefly New Battlestar Galactica (at least, until the nukes start flying) Cowboy Bebop Star Wars might defeat: Babylon 5 (at least, the younger races - if only because of shields. Elder races, like the Vorlons and Shadows should have no problem with SW ships - to say nothing about what the Thirdspace Aliens can do) Any other universes that SW can actually win against?

    Video, rather than Photo. Still counts, though. Enterprise meets Obi-Wan.mp4
  6. Well, now that Ric has recovered, all I can say is this:
  7. Trek Wars: Battlefront

    Well, since I can't think of anywhere else to post this, I'll post it here. Back in 2007/2008, I had an idea for a Star Trek/Star Wars crossover game that would play like Star Wars: Battlefront II. Now, I've decided to give this idea a second shot. Set in the Star Trek Online era for the Star Trek side, and the Original Trilogy era for the Star Wars side. Four factions - Federation, Klingon, Rebel, and Empire. There would be five classes of pilotable starfighter (Staple Fighter, Interceptor, Bomber, Raider, and Transport), eight classes of Infantry (Basic Soldier, Sniper, Heavy Weapons, Engineer, Specialist 1, Specialist 2, Specialist 3, and Pilot), and two classes of Ground Vehicle for each faction. With both land and space combat modes. Well, here are the lists for them, and (in the case of starfighters, infantry, and vehicles), their weapons. Federation - Starfighters - - Peregrine-class Fighter (Staple Fighter – Phaser Cannons, Photon Torpedoes) - - Type-9 Shuttle (Interceptor – Phaser Emitters, Photonic Missiles) - - Condor-class Attack Ship (Bomber – Phaser Cannons, Photon Torpedoes) - - Stalker-class Stealth Fighter (Raider – Tetryon Cannons, Quantum Torpedoes) - - Danube-class Runabout (Transport – Phaser Emitters, Photon Torpedoes) - Frigates - - Excelsior-class Starship - - Akira-class Starship - - Defiant-class Starship - Flagship - - Jupiter-class Starship - Infantry - - M.A.C.O.

- Imperial Pilot (Pilot – Blaster Pistol, Thermal Detonators) - Ground Vehicles - - AT-ST (Ground Vehicle 1 – Twin Blaster Cannons) - - AT-AT (Ground Vehicle 2 – 2 Heavy Blaster Cannons, 2 Triple Blaster Cannons) Unlike Battlefront II, however, you would get to pick both who you were playing as AND who your enemy was. So, you wouldn't necessarily have Federation-vs-Klingon or Rebel-vs-Empire matches. There could also be 2-vs-2 matches, 3-vs-3, or even 4-vs-4. So, hypothetically, you could have a Federation/Klingon/Rebel/Empire tag-team fighting another Federation/Klingon/Rebel/Empire tag-team. However, there would be one mode different from Battlefront. Survival Mode. In this mode, after you chose your faction and class (for ground combat, in space, you'd just choose your faction), you'd find yourself as part of a joint Federation/Klingon/Rebel/Imperial task force, or rather, what was left of one. Seems most of your army or fleet was wiped out by either the Borg or Species 8472, and now, whoever's left has to survive the onslaught. These "Survival" matches will be set at creepy places like Mustafar, Dathomir, Dagobah, or Empok Nor. So, yes, imagine fighting the Borg or Species 8472 at any of those places (especially Mustafar) while music like the following plays:
  8. The Tuvok Song

  9. Well, Wood and Metal were considered elements in the Chinese element system (which was Fire, Water, Earth, Wood, and Metal), so we're still discussing whether or not to combine the European and Chinese element models or not.
  10. My brother wants to keep things simple, and prevent the number of elements from spiraling out of control. He's doing seven elements at the most, so I'm not entirely sure what he's got planned. I'll ask him tomorrow after work.
  11. ASVS Forum Anthem

    What should the "Anthem" of this site be? "Men of Destiny" - (The theme to Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xu9_SLf0k3Q Star Trek Online Theme Thunderbusters The Real Slim Shady (Berserk Remix) Snoop Nye the Slam Guy's Dreamland Angel of Doom
  12. Basically what's going on is this: my brother's trying to revamp Dungeons & Dragons' magic system, so that each magic-using class (Cleric, Paladin, Druid, Sorcerer, Necromancer, and Wizard) uses different classical elements for their magic. Right now, we're stuck between choosing a system that uses five elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Spirit), and one that uses seven (Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Wood, Metal, Spirit). If we go with the five element system, the spells for plant-based magic get split up - with some plant spells ending up listed as "Water" magic, and others as "Earth" magic. The same rules apply to metal-based magic, only with Fire replacing Water. If we go with a seven element system, however, all plant spells will fall under the element of Wood, and all metal spells falling under the element of Metal.
  13. *gets pounded with cheesecake* This isn't what I had in mind... Maybe I should have given this thread a better title...
  14. *gets whacked by potatoes* *recovers from said whacking* I mean, do you think that Wood and Metal sorceries should be their own things, or just sub-sets of Earth, Water, and Fire?
  15. (OOC: Alright, now that my week full of nonsense is done, we can finally get this RP a rollin') Shar sipped from his mug of raktajino as he read over the latest report the scouts had sent back. A few zombies and skeletons were wandering the local forest, but nothing that they couldn't handle. He placed his mug down on the table, both to grab a bite from his egg-and-sausage sandwich, and to savor the aroma of the raktajino. Say what you will about the Klingons... he thought. They may be smelly, bloodthirsty, worm-eating barbarians, but by the gods, do they know how to make a good cup of coffee. He was just about to take another sip when his communicator went off. "Captain Shar. Captain Tol'kan Shar." the voice on the other side of the communicator began. Shar reached over and pressed a button on his communicator marked "reply". "Shar here. Go ahead." "I've just received news that the latest batch of newbies has arrived. Lord Commander Ronston requests that you be there to give them their proper welcome." Shar sighed. He knew this was going to happen. "I'll be right there." Shar replied. "Well, only one thing to do." he said to no one in particular, before rapidly devouring his sandwich and washing it down with raktajino. Grabbing his power sword and phaser pistol and putting on his cloak, he began to dart from the dining hall towards the front gate. Please, just this once, let there be no dumbasses among these newbies...
  16. A while ago, I had plans for a "Frollo Show"-style video series called "The Wacky Misadventures of Jack Sparrow", wherein Jack Sparrow would go around looking for cash, teaming up with and/or pissing off various characters from other works. Unfortunately, these plans fell through. However, I was able to make an "Animal House"-style epilogue video, detailing what happened to the characters who would've survived the final battle. And who knows. Maybe someone with the right skills will pick up on this, and "The Wacky Misadventures of Jack Sparrow" will live again. Anyway, here's the video: Epilogue.mp4
  17. As ASVS turns 20 years old today (counting it's time as a Usenet group), I felt it's time to celebrate that monumentous occasion with a story thread. Khas climbed up the slopes of Mount Ballpuncher, the forest sheltering him from the worst of both the sun and rain. Normally, Khas liked sunshowers, but hiking through this one proved to be quite the chore. His Starfleet uniform was soaked from the rain, and the sun's rays were making him sweat profusely. So, with his jacket slung over his shoulder, Khas marched onward, the phaser pistol, tricorder, and lightsaber clanking against each other as he continued his journey. He sighed, thinking back over the years he had been involved in this wonderful, glorious mess, in any way, shape, or form. From his childhood - when he had thought up the oh-so-cleverly named "Trek Wars", detailing how Captains James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard (along with their ships and crews) had visited the galaxy far, far away, to help Luke Skywalker and the other Rebels against the Empire - to his teenage years - when he had first actually gotten involved after discovering the community as a whole - to the present - the friends and enemies he'd made, the stories he'd heard, and the time time his ship had crashed in the kingdom of dark elves. To think that, despite having no knowledge of ASVS at the time, he had thought up "Trek Wars" at more or less the same time it was founded! As the forest began to thin, Khas thought of all the communities that had sprung from that old Usenet group, alt.startrek.vs.starwars. Some, like Spacebattles, TrekBBS, Starfleet Jedi, StarDestroyer.Net, ST-v-SW, and Troll Kingdom, were still around to this day. While others, like Turbolaser Commentaries, ObsidianOrder, STrek-v-SWars, and of course, Trek Wars: The Furry Conflict, had withered and passed on, perhaps to be resurrected at a later date, but for now, dead as a doornail. And yet, through all of this, through the fire, the rage, and the chaos, ASVS had endured. Even now, in its reduced state, it continued where others had floundered, and, who knew? Perhaps one day it could reclaim its greatness. There was certainly more activity now than there had been recently, so it wasn't entirely an unreasonable assumption. At last, Khas had come to the clearing. The peak of Mt. Ballpuncher was in sight now, thirty meters away at the most. Khas grinned, and slowly but surely, he began walking faster as he approached the summit. This was it, just a little longer now. His fast walk turned into a jog, and then a run. So close now. There was no time left to think, just run. Run the last twenty meters. Run the last fifteen. The last ten. Nine. Eight. Seven. Six. Five. Four. Three. Two. One. Khas came to a stop at the very peak, and caught his breath. Looking down from the mountaintop, he saw several villages, only barely visible at this altitude. These villages lay right at the border between the Forest of Insanity and the Ocean of Indignation, who's waves ground the Rocky Shore of Fortitude into the Sandy Beach of Umbrage. Looking up, Khas saw a sight he had dreamed about since childhood. A refit Constitution-class starship flew lazily overhead, escorted by a squadron of X-Wing fighters. Feeling no small amount of awe and pride, Khas did the one thing he could do. He raised his right fist up to the heavens, and extended his middle finger - a gesture some called the "ASVS Salute". Taking in a deep breath, he let loose an ancient battle cry, one that could strike fear into the hearts of the Old Ones themselves. "CONCESSION...." he began, giving the universe time to hear his cry. "ACCEPTED!"
  18. Which universes can Star Wars beat?

    Oh hey Sonofccn! I knew the name "Krevin" looked familiar.

    The scary thing? This is official art:
  20. Which universes can Star Wars beat?

    I think he's using a statement in the new canon which says that the Empire has 25,000 ISDs at its disposal. In any case, he's still wrong in saying that it has more ISDs than the Alpha Quadrant has ships. As of Star Trek Online, the United Federation of Planets, Klingon Empire, and Romulan Republic each have about 15,000 starships at their disposal, IIRC. The Dominion have about 30,000 ships at theirs. And the Borg? Millions.
  21. The Winter Fortress

    "Will your bowcaster be enough? For the smaller guys, yeah. As well as for the undead and greenskins. For some of the bigger things out there, like Bloodthirsters, Lords of Change, and some of the really tough Apostles, well..." Shar shoved another chunk of icoberry pancake into his mouth, and then took another huge gulp of raktajino, finishing it off. "What do you think the tanks are for?" Shar smirked. "In any case, you'll learn more about the enemies once your training properly begins." He walked over to the replicator, carrying the remains of his breakfast and putting them in the retrieval slot. The replicator sensed the extra mass, and its transporter activated, dematerializing the tray, utensils, and food scraps, and reducing them to their base components. "As of now, your tour of the fortress properly begins."
  22. The Toonami Thread

    Alright, since Basileus and I both know, one of our favorite anime series - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - has aired on Toonami, and its third part, "Stardust Crusaders" will begin airing on July 29th. Now, in this thread, people will discuss shows we'd like to see on Toonami. First off, I think I speak for everyone when I say "BRING BACK MEGAS XLR!". Second, I think Puella Magi Madoka Magica would be great for Toonami. Hey, if Toonami originally aired Sailor Moon, why not show a magical girl show that's actually aimed for an adult male audience (and surprisingly, contains LESS fanservice than Sailor Moon). That, and a little Lovecraftian fiction never hurt anyone, right? And maybe, just maybe, Toonami could secure the rights to Spawn: The Animated Series. Now THAT would be awesome. And maybe the "Holy Fantasy Anime Trinity" (Berserk, Slayers, and Record of Lodoss War) as well. Now, what shows would you like to see on Toonami?
  23. Star Trek: Discovery - Official Trailer

    Looks nice. Not sure how I feel about the Klingons being bald, but it could be a crew who shaved their heads as a way of showing off that they still had ridges. Sort of a "pride at being unaltered" thing.
  24. The 20th Anniversary

    In just one week, ASVS will turn 20 years old. Hard to believe, isn't it?
