Breezango and Playing Comic NPCs Correctly

Wed 24 May 2017 by Colin McLaughlin from Tribality

Worlds/Settings Homebrews Worlds/Settings Zoolander is one of my favorite films. It’s endlessly quotable, and the character presentations do a fantastic job of illustrating the dichotomy between the perceptions of those inside the fashion industry and those outside of it. If you told me you were crossing Zoolander with Law & Order and giving it as a gimmick to some professional wrestlers, I would tell you it is a concept worthy of eye rolls and would result in people tuning out. Enter the tag team of Fandango and Tyler Breeze – henceforth known as Breezango. Not only does the team lean hard into the idea they are ridiculously good looking, they also completely try and sell the idea they are real police officers looking to bring justice to all of those committing fashion crimes. This is played up in some of the skits that are performed each week on Smackdown, and in the ring itself. The ring entrance is something of a “stripper cops” vibe – which tests well with certain demographics, I am sure.

Using Pollution in Your Game

Tue 16 May 2017 by Jesse Cohoon from Tribality

“Pollution?” I can hear you asking “why should a real life trouble like that be an interesting hazard in a RPG game?” But if a DM plays it smartly, it can turn a hum-drum thing in the background into something exciting, dangerous, worthy of attention by looking at reasons why ...

Mon 15 May 2017 by Michael Long from Tribality
