The Tabletop Superhighway podcast – Actually, it was this Jank Cast episode I was listening to (they’ve been doing some crossovers lately) ~ Ben
Still Life – A Larp by Wendy Gorman, David Hertz, and Heather Silsbee
I love the Baymax & Chums vs. Gotham idea. However, I would imagine that each of the Robots would have a secret ID. Baymax of course is big, huggable, and inflated. His masked identity is the one from the movie Hero 6. This is so that they can operate in secret and get some downtime.
And here’s another idea for the podcast, my “pitch casting”:
Captain Plantagenet and the Plantageneteers!
I hadn’t thought of the secret identity thing, but now that you’ve mentioned it, I can’t put the idea down.
My thinking had been that the bots are sufficiently generic-model that nobody can tell them apart, but secret identities means that nobody is looking for their type of robot at all; Baymax in his suit is so clearly NOT a cuddly inflatable medical bot that it’d be a waste of time to look at those, as the hero version is “obviously” a custom-built robot.
And overnight I came up with two more show pitches:
“Banana Warriors of Dimension X!”
“The All Singing, All Dancing, Musical Dungeon Crawl!”
Aaaand added to the Mystery Box, …
“The All Singing, All Dancing, Musical Dungeon Crawl!” makes me imagine a system using SingStar and Dance Dance Revolution as a skill mechanic.
A bit like Dread, except instead of three pulls from the tower, you must complete ‘Your Disco Needs You’ on DDR or perform ‘Ace Of Spades’ on SingStar.
We can only hope that nobody is foolish enough to allow this thing to happen.
