“Mafiaboy”

I’m not sure where exactly I came up with this. Probably from the rare monsters in FFXII or something.

Anyway, would it be cool if maybe when you entered a forum to pwn it, there was a very small chance (I’m talkin’ real small, <1% here) for a “rare thread” to pop up. It’d have its own little blinky “rare” topic logo or something, and be made by one of your sTalk contacts on his/her specific forum or a forum appropriate for the character—for example: you could see an Ophelia thread at Woe is Us, something from THE_**** on Fitness fabulous personry, Doctor O on the Permanoob forum, et al. They’d have one “typical post” in the thread at the start, and when you start pwning the thread (which would ideally have more pwnage than a normal thread kinda like the “boss threads” from the near the end of episode 2) they’d have a few special angry replies—imagine getting Ophelia’s bad poetry used against you Log in to see images!

I’m not totally sure what the rewards would be. The obvious option would be rare .moar related stuff. Maybe three or four .moar files from a higher level forum, or a fully bumembled media file form the forum you’re pwning.

Obviously not a pressing issue, just an interesting idea I had.

New idea… perhaps it could only be a specific forum per day/week.

i like just the first part of this idea, but just make them a ‘boss’ thread that is tougher and gives several rare moar files at once or something…-anything more would be a lot of programming which is clearly not trouts forte (hehe just teasing, dont you fabulous persons ban me) (actually ****, not teasing, prog stuff better trout, here have some chicken soup)

I like this a lot, though I wouldn’t say make it THAT rare, especially if it’s going to have unique .moar files. Which would be practically impossible to bumemble if you only had a .1 or something chance to ever see the thread in the first place, much less actually get the specific piece of the file you need.

If the .moars you get were unique and incomplete then obviously the chances of finding rare threads would have to be higher. For fully bumembled files or multiple pieces that could be obtained in other forums a really low chance seems fair.

Plus, if they were rare enough, there would be more likely to be an e-peen or something or finding one.

We are foe.

Rare Items Based on the character. Or just not do it and have boss threads. You could get Ophilia’s Razors, Haxel Rose’s Ip. Like that.

I only see one problem with this. If the thread was on the list of threads then people would enter the forum, look for the rare and exit before using up a turn rather than pwning the forum. The rare thread would have to pop after you take down at least one thread and would then also need to be locked in for that forum otherwise the speed runners would constantly miss the rare threads.

Otherwise this is an excellent idea and would add a lot to replayability for vets between episodes.

Extremely good point. It would probably make sense to have a “look! a rare thread!” or some similar little notification when one pops up, once again akin to the boss thread. Then it’ll just wait there until it gets pwned or the player loses/leaves the forum. This also might add an element of strategy for lower level players. If a player think he might not be able to make it through the forum, should he go for the rare thread now to be sure and get the item?

Also a good idea. It’s always bugged me that there’s only one item in the entire game you can get for the “special items” slot, and it quickly becomes useless once you reach episode 2. Having a wide selection of unique equips found in rare threads would add more variety to that particular equip, and also help justify making rare threads extremely rare.

I like this idea too… You can add my screen name to the petition list… Log in to see images!

As long as we’re rolling with the theme of having story characters as the bosses, I guess other ideas might include (and i’m just throwing these out here, I’m not saying they’re all good)...

DrrtyCop74 over on Something Lawful

CutiePie12xo perhaps making an apperance over at Lil’ Pony Groomers )failing miserably to pretend he’s a 12 year old girl, as usual, his attacks perhaps consisting of progressively more and more outlandish “proof” of his indentity as a little girl)

Futanari-moe possibly showing up on the newly minted Fap Quest forum

HOY$CHEL checking in to Affluence Anonymous

Bruce Bear browsing Sensuous Seamen and/or 2chin (if his avatar is anything to go by)

Reilly O’Bill storming in to “straighten out” the KKK and Faux News (the two forums are a similar level so I’d imagine you could pretty much copy-paste the same boss fight from one forum to the other…

A perhaps slightly more interesting one I just thought of is running into Anonymous trolling any forum in the game (except maybe for Coral Springs, as he might not have the pbumword)... His difficultly could scale, either relative to the level of the forum he’s on, or it could scale relative to your level like the way Adventure Quest does it…

Again, just thought I’d throw those out there… Log in to see images!

That would be pretty neat. I’m all for it.

An idea for rewards: Parts of encrypted data that, when unencrypted, give access to secret, extra-nasty forums with unique .moar files? Just a thought.

I sign this 1000 times, that’s how much I agree with it.

And whoever said to put them in the special items slot also gets signed another 1000 times.

I thought Boss threads took a few thread-pwns to appear? Log in to see images!

I could see things being set it so that a forum has x% chance of a boss/rare thread appearing, then, in the appropriate forums for the quests that require it, make that chance 100%
