The Justiteers, the greatest heroes of New York City, deal with inter-group strife, arrogant members, and blackmail. Oh yeah, there is also some archvillian they may have to take care of.

    Wowzas…just wowzas. Great game all. I would love to see Big Louie come back as a NPC in another game. Maybe in Part Time Gods as the Mafia Don God of Table Top Gaming.

    To say this was awesome would be like calling the Atlantic Ocean simply huge. No matter which podcast I listen to you folks never fail to entertain and amaze!

    I would definitely like to have you all play this game again.

    Wow. Just . . . Wow. That was an awesome game, even by the standards of Fandible!

    The Superhero genre is a personal favorite of mine so this game hit a personal sweet spot anyway, but it was also one of the funniest things I’ve listened to in a long time. There is no addendum there, this isn’t a ‘funny by the standards of actual play podcasts’ or ‘funny by the standards of amateur media’, this was just superbly hilarious.

    I’m aware you’re going ‘Pulp Superhero’ next release, so it may seem unnecessary to suggest this but you should consider coming back to this superhero world sometime, to break the Arbiter out of prison, work for Big Louie, or be a gaggle of super-villains (Is the correct plural a murder?). I know a consistent setting with Fiasco is a ridiculous idea, my Rogue Trader group swapped to Fiasco for a session, a fun but disastrous event for the characters, and the Arch-Militant is still covering up what happened during that session several games later, but maybe you could return to it using a different system?

    Mutants and Masterminds, 2nd Edition not third, is a system I can wholeheartedly recommend for such an endeavor. It may be a ‘d20 only’ system but its essentially the most free system you could have for character creation and still be relatively simple and fair. It’s simple and fun to run to, and what little heavy lifting there is is only during character creation.

    Seriously though, even if this idea sounds horrible and Billy says he hates me again . . . BRING BACK BIG LOUIE!

    A Rogue Trader Fiasco game………….. Dear God, the possibilities.

  5. Thelastarchitect says:

    It was glorious chaos! 😛

    They teamed up with a mutant gang leader to preform a prison break, wrecked an art museum, incited a massive battle in the middle of a port station and several other tid-bits that snowballed ever on-wards.

    Architect you are a mad genius.

    Meanwhile I am also of the mind of seeing more of this placem the game itself was brilliant but definitely made me hunger for more. I have fallen oddly for this unfortunate cast of fools, and as another terrible person I’m sure this can get much worse with the right maneuvering.

  7. FandibleDave says:

    Fiasco does allow for the continuation of a story under their “Trainwreck” rules, where certain objects, characters or places play pivotal roles in a new story. Nothing says “sequel” to me like blood-soaked money and the possibility of multiple jailbreaks.
    I’ll show the rules to the rest of the gang and see if we can work something out.

  8. Nate says:

    WOW. That was GOOD. I second more Fiasco, especially a sequel! But really, just more Fiasco!

    I could go on at length about how outstandible and fandibletastic this audio was, but 7explorer already wrote all the things that need to be written on this topic.


    Big Louie should definitely be a recurring character, the same way Barsha keeps popping up everywhere. (Nobody puts Barsha inna corner!) Part-Time Gods is an excellent place for him to turn up; you could let Big Louie be an evil extra-dimensional twin version of Chad, or they could have some kinda Darkwing Duck/Negaduck type of relationship. The BORING solution is to let him be the God of Nerds from New York City (IRL it’s Angela, but in-game it’s Big Louie), since gods from other towns and countries could have the same aspect as the Louisville gods. The Negaduck model is cooler, though.

    Imagine if Big Louie read the Ravenloft source book, or the Book of Vile Darkness, and was sucked into the Billyverse… He would force people to play Arkham Horror or some shizzle, except it’s Jumanji-style, dawg! Every time you roll a die or play a card, some THING mankind was not meant to know goes “Ïa! Ïa!” and nom nom nom, when the moon-Gugs eat your eyes like a bit off a pizza pie, that’s Big Louie!

    Whoa, what if one of the survivors from the Ink Monster’s rampages published a game based on their experiences, and the game became a massive hit, but then it all goes Ring-U and if you play the game, you’ll only have 24 hours left to live before Mr. Black-Bubble-n-Squeal turns up to eat your memories?

    Something about this need to be worked in the Slider-esque ideas you guys once mentioned if you guys ever do it! 😛 Chad tries to introduce the game to roleplaying, DR. Atom sends Big Louie to find a being in a parallel reality that get remove him from Man-Eagle, a God of Medicine, etc

    Also thanks Syren. 😛

  11. Pencil-Monkey says:

    It’s always cool when a Fandible character has a not-quite-cameo crossover moment, like the veritable cornucopia of Barsha da Barsha appearances, or when Stevens and Rubia from Only War: 99 Problems popped up in David’s Shadowrun game. Just noticed that Man-Eagle got mentioned in the Only War podcast (during the incident with the gargoyle ‘nids). Is Man-Eagle a character that you’ve used before, David?

  12. FandibleDave says:

    Man-Eagle is actually a creation from a non-recorded game that the Fandible crew played with a few of our friends a while back. While discussing the terrible dangers that awaited the party in a fantasy world, everyone started making stuff up during the scene. “Worms that control your brain! A mist that rots your skin! Moss that makes you fall in love with the next person you see!” My contribution was something called a “man-eagle”. That one became a running gag for that game and followed us, spectre-like, into other settings.
    Is a man-eagle an eagle that eats men? A man that looks like an eagle? A super hero?
    The answer, Pencil-Monkey, is yes. Man-Eagle is whatever you need it to be.
    *mic drop*

    Especially now that he has a tumor that can manipulate atoms.
