Themed TF/SF Saturdays


TraumaTrain

Recommended Posts

I absolutely positively have never heard of this before, but immediately love it! Looking at youtube right now at hours upon hours of samplings of their songs... that will be a ToDo for when I get a little time off everything else and wanna clear my mind! 🙂

 

Personally, I am thinking of something more recent in this here...

 

 

 

 

That incident involving a nuclear accelerator and a banana… You know… I REALLY don't wanna talk about it!

Funnily enough, I just discovered the Residents.  There was a neat piece in the Economist about them just the other week:  https://www.economist.com/books-and-arts/2022/01/08/after-50-years-the-residents-are-still-on-the-road#.

 

But, I'm with Ban on that one:  when I hear that line for a song, I think of the Killers' song (possibly because it was on the radio a lot at the time?).

That's amazing that the Residents are still touring, I had no idea. I think of them as an oddity of my youth. Thanks for the article link. And have fun exploring, @Bananiac. 😊

 

As much as I love The Killers, I didn't think of their song which is When YOU Were Young. The Residents song is When WE Were Young. 🙂

 

Have fun today, everyone, I'm going to have to cancel my reservation again. I miss you all!

We miss you too and hope you get back to us soon!

I always love the Shadow Shard TFs!  I do have the habit of rushing through to the end in the final mission, but I got hung up on terrain/mobs more frequently (and forgot I usually pop a whole column of +Def/+Res) so I account for 3 of our team's 5 defeats. 🙂

Our starting lineup!  As an added layer of mischief, I'm taking the role of quest-giver. 🙂

I think this is the aftermath of the first room that was filled to the walls with enemies.

On the hunt for Nemesis...again.  This hunt was way easier than the initial one, when they were hiding.

Thinking I should bring out my Storm/Ice Blast Defender - Aurora Dawnfire.  As mummified god who was awoken once her power imbued items were placed on her.

Hi Guys! I may not be able to make it tomorrow morning. I haven’t been able to sleep well this week and am exhausted. I’m going to try to sleep in. If I can’t, hopefully I’ll find a toon I can throw a quick costume on as I’ve had no time. If I can sleep late, I won’t be there. We’ll see!

Hope you are getting well, Trixie. And hope to see you there, but don't worry about it...

Well Umber, Ban and I picked up a tanker and Sentinel roaming around in zone and smacked down some Romans. 

 

Here's a shot of my Stormie in her mummy wraps and spare parts in her basket.   And my 'Bird God' Broot I dressed up incase we needed something tanky.

I hope everyone who had real life give a less-than-welcomed turn get better soon; you were missed.

 

My stalker kept Ban company in the defeated teammates category more than a few times (dual blade Khopesh solidarity, I suppose?), but all's well that ends well: got a happy number of levels (a whopping five and a half) thanks to the WTF status.

 

Next week I'll try to bring [CENSORED], a Dark/Dark Controller, to our Yin.

Sorry I couldn't make it yesterday guys, but I did get some glorious sleep over the last two nights. I almost feel human again 😄 I'm so glad you were able to pick up a couple more people to round out the WST! I love all your costumes...they were much different than I imagined and are awesome! I'll work on the Themes for February this morning.

Here are our February Themes! Please let me know if you see anything wrong. I went by the WST calendar on this site for February and hope I got everything right 🙂 I can always use another set of eyes though.

 

Feb 5 – Lord Recluse (Level 45-50; Red Side: Grandville) Any AT! Bring your best evil costume!  

Feb 12 – Citadel (Level 25-30; Blue Side: Talos Island) Let's lock this down with all Controller/Dominator AT's! In honor of Valentine's Day, let's have pink, red, and/or white romantic costumes! 

Feb 19 – Lady Grey (Level 45-50; Hero or Villain: Rikti War Zone) Any AT! Junk Food costume theme! Chips & Dip? Donuts? French Fries? Pizza? Chocolate Covered Bacon? So many ideas!!!!  

Feb 26 – Manticore (Level 30-35; Blue Side: Brickstown) Any AT! The costume theme is Clones! I will let Rich send out something super simple for all of us to look exactly the same since it is his idea from long, long ago 😄

Howdy folks... finally reporting in from Neverland. It really sucked having to miss all those theme weeks. Sat noon is just a cumbersome time for me to be on my computer with the things I need to be taking care of. I wish we were a nighttime group! 😄 I know that probably wouldn't work for some of you though. So it's all good. I'm going to try to schedule it in again on a weekly basis like before. 

For Yin, I will bring my newbie sentinel, Midnight, Dark Blast/Energy Aura in appropriately inappropriate attire.

Who do you feel like playing? We'll be fine with whomever you choose!
