I never liked Sesame Street.
NUMBER 9 HAS BOOBS!!!!!!!!!!!! PICK NUMBER 9!!!!!!!!!
Mmm…Delicious, soft, decomposing boobs! every* necromancer’s favorite!
Though personally I like my boobs freshly-corpsified.
*Except for the weird, perverted ones- you know, the ones who like corpses with dongs.
Looks to me like someone here is not a prime number…
dun dun dunnn…
obviously its the one who’s talking, the DM (or kevin) admits it or not
but yea 9 looks like a woman, the others apparently have dicks o.O
and, why did bunker use so much force to open that door? did they jam it closed or something? was he hoping for a preemptive door in face attack?
The door was stuck closed. Also, thought you can only see it if you’re looking for adam’s apples, the last corpse in line in also female.
Always look for adam’s apples. Always.
Well, obviously no. 5 is the only one singing and/or alive. The rest look pretty dead. Could be more than one female corpse in the line-up, hard to tell from the angle. But, yeah, only one of them being lippy so far.
That is true…
Immidietly got reminded of “Zelda Ocarina Of Time” both for the song, and for the zombies soon to tea bag Bunker’s face till he dies..*shudder*
I think their teabags may be a little past the expiration date.
At least it was not the “hey Cow” Song.
Maybe fit in “who are the people in your neighborhood” In your neighborhood, the people you fight every day.
I really wonder, how a DM would describe such a situation. If No.9 is the only female one. Drawn it’s all well, but narrated?
“As you enter the room, you see a line of naked corpses leaning on the wall. Each has a number carved into it’s chest. The line starts with No. 5, then 7, 9, 11, 14(?),… . All corpses are human male but No.9 which is female. Suddenly the first one opens his eyes…”
That said, I also guess it’s the lippy one ^^
There are two females.
This is the same thought I had. In a narrated game how are you supposed to give enough clues for the players to figure it out without straight out telling them?
This is the type of thing I’d use a visual for. Drawing a picture, arranging some specially painted mini’s, that sort of thing. Making sure the players know that in *this* case they’re supposed to take what they see literally.
In one case I gave my players a map and told them that *this* map is exactly how it looks in game. Every rip, stain, fold, notation, whatever “actually” existed on the map their characters were looking at. This worked out MUCH better than trying *not* to put too much emphasis on the clue, while describing the rest of the map.
I’d go with minis. Minis of something terrible…
That’s actually very good.
It could be worse…they could be singing “C is for Cookie….that’s good enough for me!”
Of course there’s always the “Enkidu, blow em all up” solution, but the riddle solution probably causes the “Magic Mouthed” zombie to tell them how to open a secret treasure room or something…
Do you see Enkidu volunteering to help?
Actually, he probably would volunteer if he thought about it. I mean, blowing up corpses? That’s about as Enkido as milf on a stick.
Is the tune meant to be instantly recognisable internationally? Cos I’m stumped.
As for the corpse game, it’s like a far more entertaining version of Deal or No Deal. You should pitch it to the networks!
I thought it might be the Jeapardy theme song the zombie was doo-doo-dooing, but the cadence seems too off for that.
Assuming you’re not joking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etuPF1yJRzg
Elfguy wins the no-prize! 😀
Watch out Kevin…you’re turning into Stan Lee!
I could do a lot worse.
So very true, Kevin!
I don’t qualify for the No-Prize anyway…in order to qualify, I would have to have pointed out a significant flaw in the storyline or action and propose a solution to it that turns out to be correct, even if retroactively.
Thanks, I didn’t grow up with Sesame Street.
I guess it’s just one of those things…
Why is Freya still topless? Has she given up on finding clothing and embraced it now a la National Geographic?
That’s Zobbie – Freya’s sister.
Freya is still wearing overalls last I can remember.
Yup. And Zobbie’s a druid. They’re kinda the “back to nature crowd” of the D&D world.
Shapeshifting Hippie chicks. The mind boggles at the possiblities….
…And the stomach roils.
Hmm our Heroes appear to outnumber the corpses… everyone pick a number and decapitate them all at the same time. Why pick one when you can have them all? XP for everyone!
If only there were a “decapitate” maneuver in D&D…
Vorporal, just make sure you roll natural 20 and confirm it
Erm… Only #9 has a navel that can be seen. Do male corpses not have navels??
You’re kidding me, right?
Only 3 of the corpses midsections can be seen, and two of them are at a sharper angle. The first one has a visible navel, the other two, not so much. Now, number 5 simply has an inny, as have the last three generations of males in his family. His great-great grandfather had an outie, but he was also an accountant with a weak chin, poor eyesight, and a host of other recessive traits.
Number 7 used to have an outie, but the surgeon removed it when operating on an umbilical hernia because he thought it would be the perfect size to make a yarmulke for his pet mouse, who was Jewish. (The surgeon worshipped Lageron.) As it turned out, the belly button was slightly too large and the mouse threw it away.
If this answer is not satisfying to you, I really do not need to know. 😉
Leather yarmulke? I don’t think it’ll sit on the head that well, too coarse and ungainly. A cloth one would be better, so the mouse probably lied about it being too large(you can snip/stitch stuff, you know) for its head, it just wanted a comfortable, normal cloth yarmulke instead.
Also, you can knit cloth ones with all kinds of delicate patterns.
In order for it to be “leather” it has to be from an animal with both the right kind and the right thickness of skin. (Plus tanning and whatnot.) You can’t make leather out of human belly button skin, it’s far too thin. It’d just be a skin hat.
“Skin hat” sounds worse. Although “yarmulke” sounds even worse than that.
Also, now that I’ve thought about it, I don’t believe you can wear a human-skin kippah anyway, so your mouse was faking his Judaism, most likely for the purpose of some nefarious antisemitic scheme! I knew you were out to get me, Kevin!
I wonder if Reavers made such kippahs after they were done raping you to death and eating your flesh, preferably in that order.
Awesome – I do have to say that this scene brings back a lot of happy, silly DnD memories of the campaigns my friends and I used to cook up, always tried to get something nice and goofy in the adventure.
I can’t see the number on the female closest to the reader. Is she a 13?
The last number is deliberately obscured.
oooooo…the thick plottens…
You know, the second digit on the last one doesn’t look like the top of a “3”, which would either be rounded or straight like a “7”. It looks more triangular, like the top of a “1” or “4”.
If it’s the later then it’s the only even number in the group and s the correct answer.
Do I win?
No, no, no. Too obvious.
My vote is that they’re all PC users, except #11, who owns a Mac.
Damn. Ron got it. 😉
the corpse next to 11 is 14. But let’s let Kevin tell his story the way he plans to instead of trying to figure it out before he posts it.
Thanks Erin, but it’s okay. If everyone is having fun trying to figure it out, that’s perfectly fine. (Though it doesn’t mean I’m going to tell them if they’re right!)
I also believe it is number 14, because she is an undocumented worker, and was confused by the numbering process.
All non-Americans being math-challenged. 😯
I love how Enkidu is telling our poor doodad a number that isn’t even there…obviously he WANTS Bunker’s face torn off…
I thought NASA was mostly American back in 1962.
Yah, good old Americans like Doctor Wernher von Braun….
I did say “mostly”, and I abhor the frequent, semi-relevant mention of Nazies on the internet.
How is a mention of Wehrner Von Braun only semi-relevant to a discussion of NASA’s “Americanism” in the 60s?
Seems like my jokes aren’t well understood. I was joking at some people’s(Kevin! He’s after me!) accusations that I myself have been bringing up Hitler etc on unrelated occasions.
And Braun wasn’t making the computer guiding programs, just the physical rockets’ design, so the blame is again at the feet of the Americans.
And this whole thing is Kevin’s fault, as usual, for telling a joke I didn’t get about non-Americans being bad at math(which I personally am, but never mind that), which, I guess, relates to John’s comment, which I didn’t get either. What’s an “undocumented worker” anyway?
Also, I’ve been awake for far too long.
Yeah stop persecuting Orald, you’re behaving like a bunch of Hitlers!
It’s a fair cop.
An undocumented worker is what some people call an illegal immigrant.
And yet others call “Criminals”
Guess what they do to “Undocumented Workers” who sneak across the southern border in MEXICO?
Err, let them stay over, raise their children and then have the whole mainstream media protest against the deportation of a few hundreds of them(out of many thousands), saying they’ll even hide them and their children so the authorities can’t deport them(All the while comparing the situation to refugee Jews during WWII, and the government to Nazies)?
Well, at least that’s how it’s done here these last few weeks.
And I’m not kidding, that’s exactly what they’ve been doing, including the hiding and comparison to Nazies part. Mainstream media.
Seems to me the solution is simple. 60 seconds is ten rounds before he attacks. Kick the living hell outta these losers.
Caveman is living up to his name i hear? 😆
I’m just spitballin’ here, but I’d imagine that if you started pounding the shit outta the monsters while they were waiting for the answer, they’d most likely take that AS your answer.
Hmm, personally i think Caveman has it.
The zombies are numbered 5 , 7 , 9, 11 and (possibly) 14.
9 is the only one that is not a prime number. 🙄
14 is not a prime number.
My math ability sucks ass.
Let us see…..
I can primarily either go with “i meant single digit prime numbers” or “i meant 17 instead of 14” 😉
All of them are odd numbers, and in sequence, except 14.
14 is not an odd number. In fact it’s rather ordinary.
Well that’s what I said, isnt it? the OTHERS are odd numbers, but 14 isn’t…and they’re in sequence (5, 7, 9,11) So the next one SHOULD have been 13…but it’s not, therefore it’s the one that doesn’t belong…
That is what you said. 🙂
Oh man. Im so dumb. Only one of them is talking. So if that number isnt prime, go with the one that is doing the threat of “ill tear”, not “They will”
If you guess two of them, do you double your chances of being right, or being wrong?
Well, it really depended on the last hidden number Kevin. Which was 13, so it was prime numbers.
I think someone owes someone else a cookie.
He cheated. That is so not a “3” 😛
He is allowed to cheat a little. He is sort of our GM.
I never cheat. Your eyes are wrong.
