Monsters and Other Childish Things: Coronet

MORE DANGEROUS THAN DYNAMITE :OAfter saving the world from an evil cult during a summer road trip, a group of friends and their monster pals find themselves trapped in a strange world, where an omniscient narrator distantly rumbles life lessons about crossing the street and not washing clothes with gasoline, and that’s not even mentioning the flying monkey. Can they figure out what’s going and who’s behind it? Will the subcommittee reconvene before Mr. Speaker suspends the parliamentary session? Find out in this special one shot of Monsters and Other Childish Things!

  1. First Post! Also, Huzzah, another MaOCT Podcast by the RPPR Crew. 🙂

  2. Is there any game that cannot be improved by the inclusion of Caleb?

  3. @CodeBreaker: you shoulda seen the time he did a multiplayer tictactoe game–one of the players is still lost in the steam tunnels *waggles eyebrows*

  4. Oh, man. That was one of the most hilarious games I’ve ever heard. Hats off to Caleb for the bizarrely awesome concept and role-playing, and Aaron for some great moments.

  5. Also, this session convinced me to buy Road Trip. Huzzah!

  6. Well this game was greatly amusing. But question what episode were you commenting on with the funny accent there have been so many

    Also Haley Beckner relationship is the second best creepy relationship in a Monsters Game.
    The Girl Who Doesn’t Close Her Blinds is the best one the player used it for notice

  7. I absolutely love when Ross does funny voices. And this episode was rife with funny voices! 😀

  8. I would like to put forward a motion to establish a sub-committee on the feasibility of declaring FUPA a, if the, superior and superbly entertaining monster and concept.

  9. The Reality Trip was awesome. Too bad none of the kids thought of turning the “mad cap virtual world” into a giant video game. Or pick up creepy kid powers from the Mad Scientist Witch.

  10. Sure Ross, it’s “reality” whose being the dick. We believe you.

    I love this concept and would steal it for many styles of game.

  11. That was hilarious. Shades of mst3k/Rifftrax. Oh, shorts.

  12. Wow, this was amazing. Caleb, I am honestly surprised each time you pick up a new game and provide a new, interesting perspective. David, your monster is cool; I didn’t really get the normal Monsters feel from it. I mean, it doesn’t have any personality or clear oddities.

  13. Oh god. I knew what this was when I saw the title. I’m totally running this in CoC.

    @AlchemicFox How would that even work? Carcosa? Mi-Go virtual reality experiment?

  15. Carcosa. Always Carcosa.

  16. Every single time that F.U.P.A. did anything was absolute gold. When…it?…was first introduced, I was in absolute stitches. Caleb, if you don’t mind, I am stealing the fuck out of it for one of my games in the future.

    Also, did anybody else notice that this is two games in a row featuring origami-powered monsters?

    I’ll try to do better next time. I had a clear mental image of Sembazuru, but I didn’t explain it well in-game. I pictured it speaking in a thousand whispered voices, evoking a “We are Legion” vibe. For the attacks/actions/assists, I imagined old-school Alfred Hitchcock avian glory. All of that pales in comparison to the sheer genius that was F.U.P.A.

    Real-life hobby of mine, and it’s ended up on the gaming table a time or two. It’s a happy coincidence that these two were posted together, but I do know there’ll be more of it in the future. That is, until they take away my paper, and gum wrappers, and coke bottle labels…

  18. What an awesomely creative and utterly odd-ball concept for a game! I loved the ridiculous thought of the kids being thrown into a world built into PSA’s. Ha, someone has been watching Rifftrax. This was impressively creative Ross, and the result sounded like a lot of fun!

  19. Again you guys did great. I just imagined my grand kids in the same situation (but my grand daughter would not hesitate having the flying monkey having a pistol) and acting almost the same way. And that had to be the BEST School Bus Ride EVER! Great show, Laughed so hard JD Came out my nose.

  21. I really should pick up MaoCT. The ORE works pretty good in certain games.

  22. Relistening to this, it could probably be retooled for an analog horror thing, maybe even in Little Fears?
