cool! hey on the page at the bottom of the darkseed page there are links one of them goes to the darkseed II trailer and the other two go to downloading the games (downloading them is not illegal because they aren't being published anymore so they count as abandonware and can be downloaded freely)
Thank you, I'm going to look at the trailer, and try to find a longplay of Darkseed 1. I'm still working on my own project, that I really want to have at a decent stopping point. So playing video games will come at the expense of writing/drawing/etc. I'm a huge fan of the artwork of HR Geiger though, so I think I can come up with some neat ideas.
cool! I'm trying to recruit more contributors right now for the project keep doing what you are doing!
Will do! If you have any advice or thoughts on what I'm working on now, id be happy to hear some feedback. But otherwise regarding the Darkseed project, if you can think of something specific you think needs done, I'm more than happy to work on that. One thing I was thinking is that you might want to pick a specific GRPG system to build around. From what I saw so far from Dark Seed, I wonder if a system that is built more around currencies rather than attributes would be better. I could be wrong about this, but personally, I think HR Geiger's art tends to leave people with a sort of "Overwhelmed discomfort" his paintings are always incredibly detailed and busy, and there is this sense that you don't really know whats going on, but you are starting to get a clue. My concern about attributes is that having skills you can rely on creates a sense of comfort, that you have some idea what you are doing. You have strength, so you have some sense that you know what your strength can do. But take that away, then you no longer know what your own body is worth in this strange universe.
I wonder if something like Open Legend with its system of banes and boons would be good in this case. Build the game about strange artifacts that the players don't really know what they do, and have to accept negative consequences just to survive.--Wammnebu (talk) 20:34, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
well, there are a few ways to use the setting: survival horror military sci-fi and you sound like you are talking about adventure.
well, I have the most experience with d20 so that's what I'm mostly going off. but I like your creative input about his paintings like there's this one particularly interesting work called the birth machine and it has a particularly interesting deeper meaning: the picture is the magazine and chamber of a gun full of bullets but the bullets are babies and that is giger's commentary on how the world's overpopulation will be deadly
and I think you could start a classes/races section and work on that and then I can give you feedback on it.
maybe you could write some fluff about the races or should I do that? I should let you focus on the roolz side of things because I'm not good at that.
Definitely don't feel like I'm prepared to write races and classes yet so I'll leave that to someone more knowledgeable of darkseeds lore.
I started brainstorming some ideas for rules if you want to look at the talk page, I could also start coming up with drafts on my own page which we can import or not. I definitely feel more comfortable coming up with systems for now.--Wammnebu (talk) 22:32, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
ok cool, I can come up with the fluff for the races and then you can write the crunch. how does that sound?
if you have any interest, i published my first story for MedHammer, Im a little demoralized on this project, im not sure if ill keep going with it or not. The Golden Honey. I have 3 more pieces for this story, 3 for a different one, and 4 for a sequel story. Advice and criticism welcome--Wammnebu (talk) 16:26, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
Pokemon and 40k?
Tell us about your idea. This might be interesting.--2601:203:480:4C60:2190:A86E:19E1:EC73 07:32, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
ok so. basically, I want to take the Warhammer 40000 setting and put pokemon into it: like tech-priests worshipping rotoms as machine sprits or underhive gangers having pokemon battles or space marines fighting alongside pokemon on the battlefield and there are warp-tainted pokemon and every god has a favoured one that embodies its ideals like for example: Khorne likes aggron because it likes Destroying things and killing people (remember this is going to be grimdark still) tzeench favours alakazam because of its psychic powers Nurgle favours koffing because of its poisons and diseases in its body and Slaanesh favours salazzle because... read the Pokedex entry...
dude make the pokeballs portals to the warp The kreigerstine
I think I mentioned it on my own page, but the easiest way to make this in-universe would be to have the Orks do this. The different pokemon could vary from various fauna, warp demons, to enemy combatants (like maybe a captured space marine could be one of the Pokemon, of the umie type). Final Gym Boss is Trayzon the Infinite. --Wammnebu (talk) 04:44, 18 June 2020 (UTC)\
not what I had in mind. read some of the things I wrote on the actual page. also, you should take a look at the pokemon tabletop united rules (they are linked for download on the page for pokemon tabletop united here on 1d4chan) anyways I was going for more of an existing pokemon are transplanted into 40k and maybe some new ones (within reason) and then see how the various factions (imperium especially would use them) not so much as 40k in pokemon its pokemon in 40k because that's more interesting than a wild space marine appears! you seee where I'm coming from? we should talk later. and keep looking at 1d4chan because I'm going to be writing for the new pokemon thing and giger Savagereaper (talk) 05:25, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
Thank you, but I must decline your offer of working on your Pokemon codex. Pokemon isn’t something that primarily interests me, and the other things (primarily the angry marines) I do take up most of my time I have spare along with money I probably shouldn’t spend. Thank you for the offer however and I wish the best of luck in your venture.
thanks for considering my stupid idea. The kreigerstine
well that means we wouid have to create a pokemon stat block for them in pokemon tabletop united and that means doing a whole bunch of shit like constructing move ists and ev's and level up tables so we wouid to do a bunch of bullshit and it sounds cool but there wouid be a lot of work involved Savagereaper (talk) 15:36, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

sry for going dark. had other things going on.
no problem, things have been really crazy for me as well, i think after this month i should have my job and other issues situated though. I hope to have the birth machine painting done by then. Im in limbo on whether to continue working on my midhammer 40k project after publishing one of the short stories. It also seems like 1d4chan keeps going on and off so maybe we should worry about backing up Darkseed? --Wammnebu 11:27, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
