This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Is the bike or buckle possessed by a demon? That would totally be Grimmzo.

Or is is GonDark?


Nah, though there is a suit of living virus that perpetually claws its way into the host's brain whenever used.

I like to think I'm an equal opportunity maker of wacky shit.

Living virus is a bit of an oxymoron. Bacteria more likely.

Living virus sounds better and it's totally Grimzo, or is it Gonzark? I'm so confused, nevermind nothing to see here, just move along.:D

Virus is more metal.

Which would you name your death metal band, Virus, or Bacteria?

I was aiming for the "it does not bother me that a penguin is holding a music instrument, but that there's a penguin and a polar bear in one picture - since they live on 2 different poles" joke :P.

I'd honestly suggest bacteria rather then viruses - it'd make sense for them to get to the brain. Viruses just...exist and replicate.

Since your harshing my buzz by being all logical and stuff, yes you're correct, but NO FUN!

Actually, I think in the text it's referred to as a "plague".

Which is both metal, and joyously vague.

So I've seen people here discuss this concept a few times, and I think I know what some people feel about the whole thing: but what do you like? Grimm Dark or Gonzo? Or something in between? Why?


...in reference to whicvh game system or setting??

Its like you're missing half of your question. The context is completely missing.

Usually on this forum; 'Grim Dark' and 'Gonzo' have been used to describe WARHAMMER 40K and how it changed over the years.

 IF you're referring to WH 40K - then its all mostly crap.

Biology nitpick time! Yay!

This one's been laid to rest for some time now. Nowadays, no biologist in his right mind gives any credence to the idea that vriuses (virii?) are not living organisms.

Bacteria have a much harder time getting through the blood-brain barrier, than viruses (virii?). And when they do reach the central nervous system, they tend to kill the host pretty quick, while viruses (virii?) may go for a acute, devastating infection (e.g. West Nile encephalitis) or a slow, dementia-inducing chronic infection (e.g. HIV and the "AIDS dementia complex").
