    Why hello there. Welcome to a completely random thought.

    In an effort to explain where this thought came from, I had just started watching the PAX 2011 D&D panel and randomly started fiddling with Thundercracker when the two things merged in my mind.

    Side note, if you want to see it, here:

    So the random thought.

    If you could play D&D, or any pen and paper game really, with any Transformer who would you want to play with? Who would be the DM? Who would play what type of character?

    I'd like to participate in an all-human-participant game, with Marvel Comics Shockwave as the DM. His dungeons, I imagine, would be fiendish.

    If I understand comic Shockwave, wouldn't that just be a Gygax-ian dungeon?

    Think Tomb of Horrors on steroids. It would be amazing.

    I think the mere thought of such a thing has killed my next character....

    I bet Perceptor would be a total rules lawyer.

    Totally


    Would want Prime Ratchet, Rattrap, Kup and Warpath as folks in my party, they can play their character roles in the party for sake of discussion.

    With prime Soundwave as the DM as that would be so creepy and messed up it would be fantastic.

    Cliffjumper would be the obnoxious min/maxed overcompensation warrior for the DM to drop random umber hulks on. Don't you always need one of those? :)

    You are attacked by a party of wandering grimlocks. Roll to save vs. trademark.

    Dude Grimlock would totally play a bard.

    Megatron should be forced to play a cleric just because I find that funny.

    I see Starscream being a total power gamer. His characters wouldn't be characters they would be exercises in doing the most damage.

    TF Prime Optimus Prime would definitely be a druid.

    NO. NO.

    The thought of Shockwave running Tomb of Horrors is chilling. Especially since he'd probably try to BUILD the damn thing... LARPers beware the great green devil face!

    And I see Megatron as a player leading to lots of "on-the-fly" house rules being created!

    Great now I'll have nightmares about Shockwave watching me run through the Tomb.

    Yeah I could see Megatron saying, "I say a natural 1 is a critical hit and the fusion cannon in your face agrees."

    I spent twenty years building a pen and paper RPG based on TFs. They don't mesh good with D+D classes.

    BUT Lugnut and Sunstorm are both pretty much clerics.
