Tychpo Resolved!

By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
He’s working from home today, so I just went over to his computer and commenced with the textual healing. I wasn’t made to debase myself! What an incredible change of pace.

The Conflux, Part Five
Posted by News Fetcher on December 02 '11 at 10:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
There is a Typo (which Gabriel calls a “Tychpo”) in the strip, which Gabriel is refusing to fix because I must “learn.” It is philosophically of a piece with grinding a pet’s nose into the fibers of a fouled carpet. I will see what kind of genuflections are required to make the comic whole.

What we are hearing from longtime players of Pathfinder is that they, too, run into the same Wall Of X when it comes to creep - four or five smirking demigods enslaving the system, warping it like an event horizon. This has only widened the search pattern for us, delving into what is sometimes termed Fourthcore - aftermarket dungeon philosophy designed to curb these nascent world-eaters.
Perhaps horrified by what we might be setting into motion, Kiko came in yesterday to tell Gabriel that whatever crisis of faith might be happening behind the screen, the players are having a blast. They are the end purpose, right? They’re enjoying it. But moving into the third act, it’s clear that Gabriel is exhausted trying to maintain the energy of his earlier successes. It’s time for a change.

And I think we’re getting close.
I recognize that Modern Warfare 3 is beyond vile, and that liking any portion of it - even in private - is to swear fealty to an immoral and undying reich. But Kill Confirmed is hot to death, the kind of wrench twist that alters every variable, and deserves a moment.

Would You Like To Play The New Tribes?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 30 '11 at 04:30 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Because I can hook that up.

Ever since we cooked up a system to distribute codes, everybody has codes that they want us to give out. Just piles and piles of them. Here’s the latest one, which I expect will tantalize you: access to Tribes: Ascend, for the first 2500 to sign up.

Pathfinder
Posted by News Fetcher on November 30 '11 at 03:15 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I started playing table top RPG’s with D&D 4e. My group was also almost entirely composed of players new to D&D. We learned with 4e and so I think it has a special place in our hearts. Our game ran for about three years and I chronicled a lot of it here on the site. As time went on and I got more comfortable with the rules I started doing some pretty crazy shit.



I feel like the level 1 to 12 run was incredible. The character advancement seemed perfect and we all had a blast. By the time we quit my players were level 21 and I felt like mechanically the game just didn’t work as well. They all had big stacks of power cards and I felt like more time was spent thinking about these cards rather than interacting with each other and the world. Also it became very difficult to challenge them. So I started getting a little burnt out. The sense of wonder and excitement that I had in the beginning of the campaign just wasn’t there anymore. I put the game on hold and that was about a year ago.

The Conflux, Part Four
Posted by News Fetcher on November 29 '11 at 11:15 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
The challenges of player power in Gabriel’s campaign (“Pursuit Of Destiny,” which I always liked as a name) are such that we’re hauling in ideas from every attainable source - availing ourselves of every lash, every hot brand.

This is the phase, a relatively common phase for roleplaying enthusiasts, that he never had. He never needed to; he was exposed early on to a system that worked for him, and his players were new to the form as well. Starting late, and beginning his career as a Dungeon Master, he never toured those other ways-of-doing. He had no Buck Rogers phase. No Robotech phase, and hence, no mega-damage. No Paranoia phase. No Savage Worlds phase, no Burning Wheel phase. No Deadlands phase. No Wraith, no Vampire. One game of Mage.

Seventeen years ago. I tried, people! I tried.

Buy a Print is back!
Posted by News Fetcher on November 28 '11 at 12:45 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
It has been a long time coming but our Buy a Print option is back on the site! These are large prints usually 11x17 and come from the original 600 DPI comic file. They look super crisp! The feature has been missing from the site for a while so you might want to take a trip back through the archive and see if there was anything you wanted. I made a little list of some recent strips that I think are especially print-worthy.

The Conflux, Part Three
Posted by News Fetcher on November 28 '11 at 11:15 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
We wrapped up an old Iron Kingdoms adventure after a lull of several months, and getting around a table only stoked a fire that was already threatening the roof. It is approaching obsession levels very quickly, surprising in its ferocity. Sleep is no refuge; some unconscious process is always at work, sharpening my knives.

Our 4E version of the Iron Kingdoms setting is sort of a hacked together mess, with not-entirely-proper versions of existing classes, palette swaps, and kludges, with all the attendant cruft. At their convention, Privateer announced that they were getting back into traditional roleplaying games, which would brush all that nasty stuff away. That’s really what I want. If I can use a bunch of my existing models for an entirely other game - similar to what happened with Dominion in League of Legends - then I will consent, however briefly, to something like joy.
So yeah, it was a mess, and therefore messy, but: also marvelous, in its way. The party is such a fun mix of deconstructed archetypes that you harvest awesome Seven Samurai moments several times a night. The whole affair has that sweet/savory Sloppy Joe quality that makes it delicious, if not elegant; paper towels are virtually a requirement.

Zelda page 2
Posted by News Fetcher on November 22 '11 at 01:45 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
The second page of our Zelda: Skyward Sword comic is now live over on Nintendo’s site.

When we first sat down to write this project we had a hard time. Link doesn’t speak and Nintendo didn’t want him to even have an internal monolog. So the narration had to come from someplace else. After we started playing though the game we discovered what a cool character Gaepora was. He is Zelda’s father and as Dads ourselves, we tried to immagine what all of this must be like for him. His daughter is missing and the only person who can save her is this kid? It seemed like an interesting angle to us and I think the final product is a cool look inside the mind of someone you might just skip over otherwise.

Here are a couple detail shots from the high res version.

A new painting
Posted by News Fetcher on November 21 '11 at 01:15 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
In case you can’t tell I’ve been a little bit obsessed with Zelda recently. I’m about 50 hours into Skyward sword and I think I’m pretty near the end. I’ve also been working on the Zelda comic that we announced last week. The second page of that will go up tomorrow by the way. One of the things I did when I first started the Zelda comic was to get a little sketchbook just for the project. So I’ve been doodling and making little water color paintings in it for a couple of months now. One of the sketches I did I actually really liked and when I looked at it I felt like it should be a painting.



I haven’t painted anything with acrylics since back in 2008 but I decided it was time to crack out the easel again.



So I got all my stuff set back up and went to work on a new piece.



I really missed working with acrylics and it feels great to be painting again



I was so excited to be back in front of a canvas that I ended up knocking this out in just a couple of days. I am really happy with the way it came out and I’m already planning my next painting.

PATV Season 2 DVD
Posted by News Fetcher on November 21 '11 at 11:15 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Penny Arcade TV season 3 kicked off last week and hopefully you checked out the first episode. Meanwhile the PATV season 2 DVD is now available for pre-order. Originally we had set Sunday as the final day for ordering your special signed copy but we’ve pushed that out a couple of days. So now you have until tomorrow Tuesday Nov, 22 at midnight to pre-order a copy of the Season 2 DVD. We will be signing all the pre-orders so hit the store and grab yours today.

The DVD includes a ton of bonus content like commentaries and extra footage. One of the best features I think are the “lost 4th panels”. The camera guys are always filming Jerry and I but not all of our bullshit ends up online. Some of the stuff gets cut and a few of the better ones have been collected here on the DVD. Here is an example of one of these new 4th panels. The camera guys caught Jerry and I having a conversation about our kids and religion.
