Some context: entering this season, no woman had completed a televised course in either Japanese or American Ninja Warriors. I’d also argue that ANW’s qualifying courses are harder than any Stage 1 course on either.
This woman is a fucking badass. First woman ever to advance!
I’m not crying your crying
SHE IS SO STRONG AND GRACEFUL CRIES OPENLY
I had to look up another version bc lol europe but this is the coolest thing and NEVER have I ever wished so much I could show something to myself as a kid this badly like ugh
THIS IS SO AWESOME
A few thoughts
> as a rule I tend to avoid anw. I find it to not be as enjoyable as the original and not as brutally difficult. HOWEVER, “not as brutally difficult” is like saying “getting hit by a car isnt as bad as getting hit by a bus.”
> Everything up until the salmon ladder was like “oh neat, this reminds me of bootcamp.” Then my jaw dropped with how well she handled the rest of the course. My muscles would have been shredded by then.
> MOTHER OF FUCK, THE LEGS.
>THE OBSTACLES ARE DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE MORE THAN A FOOT HER SIZE I HONESTLY DID NOT BELIEVE SOMEONE HER SIZE COULD PHYSICALLY COMPLETE THE COURSE
> the speed she went up the spider climb shows she still had tons of energy and power left. She didnt even look winded. How the fuck
Ignoring whats between her thighs, thats one of the smoothest runs of a NW course ive ever seen. Incredible competitor, and the fact that she is a female is a testiment to the fact that sex is not the end-all factor of fitness.
10/10, would follow into battle proudly.

Did you mean, “Adorable cotton fluffs with eyes?”

But I have been working on a Sci-fi RPG for awhile now. I won’t pretend it’s completely original (after all, what is?), largely being a reskin of Dark Heresy’s d100 system (similar to how Star Wars d20 was a “reskin” of the normal ogl dnd system).
Ive finally got enough of it done in STACKS of notebooks that I feel comfortable typing it. This is a pretty big project and will take awhile to be completely done, but a thought ocurred to me:
Ive been asking friends with help testing it. And by testing, I mean everything from proof reading, to actual mechanical testing, to “hey, this description isnt really clear”, etc.
While I do very much appreciate their help, more testers means more feedback. More feedback means more refinement. More refinement means a better game.
Im fully aware that im gonna get trolls, anonhate, and the like. But I want to tap into the thinktank here.
Heres the link to the googledoc of the core rulebook. Im not trying to make any cash off this or anything, just to have fun, so it might be slow going since my job will take priority. But still, if youre interested you might care to bookmark it.
Anything that is tied to this will be tagged with #VOID and #tabletop from now on. For the record, im aware its littered with spelling errors and minor grammar stuff. A lot of that is due to me mostly typing it on my phone. Still, if you think its something that ISNT tied to that feel free to say something.
Unrelated note: Im also going to start tagging original posts from me as “Dronebuzz”. For reasons.
