Hoist! You locked the OOC thread before we could tell you what a great rpg!
The flash backs at the ending are very nice, I felt like I was actually watching a movie. Great story telling device!
I have to say, you really had me at some moments. I figured you'd smite kill Grunt if I made the wrong move on the alien planet. I'm surprised he got as far as he did, I guess you'll just rough him up next time.
The part of the rpg where its just the Cybertronians has a Predator and Aliens feel to it, but I don't mean AVP, I mean the two movies before they united and became terrible. I can't wait till next time!
It....Was.....AWESOME! Genuinely thought Reaper wasn't going to make it. Shame there wasn't too much interest in playing Destrons, made some posts for Gorgon a little difficult as I had the only non-NPC who didn't go AWOL.
I think I prefer the baddies to be completely GM controlled though, much like EL7 has done with his RPG. It make it flow easier and more fluid, not having to wait for other players to post as the bad guys and makes battle really come down to the GM.
good story though. Love the Beast Wars II storyline intertwined with the players.

Other good points about GM controlled bad guys are that you focus in the good guys, Players can watch other people's characters and watch them grow or deal with stuff. Bad guys and their motivations are pretty much set and make the good guys work hard to figure out how to stop them.
Plus, if players are the actually bad guys, sometimes its hard to get them to do what the GM needs them to do. And I pretty much have no problem with my bad guys dieing or taking a beating form the a player.
And over all, it makes the rpg simplier. I used to do two sided rpgs but players don't read all the active threads, and personally I don't blame them. Sometimes its hard to keep up. Mind you of course TOK has 3 threads, but as you see their not all too busy.
Ok, thats enough of me stealing Hoist's spot light! Back to worshiping the Lean Green One!
