As modern people, it's easy for us to find our day to day lacking in dramatic moments. Of course, it could be up to all of us to go out in the world and find our own adventure, to live the life that each of us have been briefly allotted. The thing is though, finding our own adventure sometimes means losing your internet connection, so screw it. Outside is overrated anyway. And so say the members of Chicken Smoothie, a kid-friendly furry virtual-pet trading thingamajig with a very active community of role play forum posters. This week, there's no laws about The F Plus (just a long list of rules).

And thus, the F Plus crew finally managed to Quantum Jump to a normal universe, and they were never seen again...

Found this episode from Chicken Smoothie itself (yep, you got a topic on this episode.) Every word is true and I really hope you guys come back for some more, I promise you'll never run out of material. I lost it at the law school romance roleplay. I'm surprised you guys didn't find one of the teen pregnancy roleplays, they're all over the damn place.

In the meantime, you got a new subscriber and now listening to old episodes. Keep it up!

I just got around to hearing this episode. While it was hilarious and definitely worth the wait, I was deeply saddened when nobody - not one Ridiculist! - said "FERTILITY" in the Mortal Kombat announcer's voice during the relevant scene. What the hell?

Quoting Zygote:
puppy mill [...] RPs are not allowed


What the literal fuck. Who on Earth would think that is a good idea?! How broken of an individual do you have to be to think that this is in anyway something people want to see and participate in.

...And how many of them were there that it had to be explicitly banned. Augh.


The rules just got rewritten. Now, it's "No roleplaying or even mentioning forced or unwanted matings/sex/pregnancy in any way, shape or form, even in PMs". I wonder how long it'll be before some bright spark notices puppy mills aren't specifically forbidden anymore.

Quoting Cleretic:

They probably just took it to PMs.


There's still a rule that you get instantly and permanently banned if you take sex to PMs. Nothing more than kissing is allowed. All PMs must be totally child friendly NO EXCEPTIONS.

Do furry roleplayers also roleplay the part where dogs eat their own crap?

Do you really want to know the answer to that question.

There is a rule now that roleplays have to fade to black for sex scenes, can't have lots of torture, can't have rape, and puppy mill and dogfighting RPs are not allowed.
Yes, this rule was desperately needed.
Be very, very glad you didn't see the roleplay forums before that rule came around.

Don't worry lemon, I liked your Freak Nasty joke.

"This goes out to all the furries in the world... especially her.
You know it don't even matter your species
It don't even matter your (fur) colour."

I have to follow this episode with the Conquistadog section of the Mythbusters episode. It's like a compulsion.

I'm sure they do in certain circles

As being a furry myself, I cant help but laugh at the thought of a "kid friendly" furry related thing.

As any student will tell you, the "law school law of love" is loss of consortium.
(This can semi-accurately be described as the tort of cockblocking.)
Well, that was a shitty non-explanation . An old joke among law students is that you can sue your school for loss of consortium, because you spend so much time studying that you can't get laid.

Thank you Lemon. I was mentally composing my indignant post the ridiculists missing the obvious opportunity to reference Freak Nasty's "Da Dip" but you came in at the last second to restore my faith in The F Plus' collective knowledge of 1990's Jams.

Quoting Clockderp:
You know, I like roleplay and all, but this is just bafflingly boring. You'd think that sad, lonely teenagers would be more inclined to make characters that don't act like sad, lonely teenagers.

This is exactly right, these guys are easily the worst roleplayers featured on the podcast.

At least the MUD roleplayers, and a good portion of the superhero ones, were clearly there for sex. It was extremely detailed masturbation to them, and if that's your style of porn, go nuts. The good roleplayers on the superhero MMOs were usually writers, and saw it as a collaborative writing exercise, or a way to explore a character of theirs, or a way to add depth to their gaming.

This has none of those points. It's not sexy, it's not creative, it's not increasing connection to anything, it's just... a thing, that exists, and that one thousand people are doing RIGHT NOW.

I skimmed the document. I did not see any image that warranted such a purge as you mentioned at the start of the episode.

(Also, "fae" is stupid teenaged roleplayer for any female canine or fox. I wish I could remove this knowledge from my brain.)

Expressing creativity is great, exploring complex issues through allegory or abstraction can be an art, and clever wordplay and wit are always welcome too but you can't do any of those this forum is for you! It's genuinely and crushingly sad that I've heard more original, imaginative and gripping stories come ad hoc from my four year old niece.

It's one thing to Roleplay just for fun or play around with other people who like to write. It's a completely different thing when you use it as a means of escaping reality. This is, in my opinion at least, one of the saddest episodes I've ever seen (I think it's right behind Go Get 'Em Tiger).
