i've seen Time Bandits....
and, have you ever run games like this...
>could you play Time Wizards like Time Bandits?
I think I watched Time Bandits and TAOBM for the first time during the same summer as a kid. Good times.
ITT: recommend one /tg/-related '80s movie with each of your posts.
>The Dark Crystal
The Last Unicorn.
>Love is slowing you down, my lady. I will catch you at last if you love much more.
>Look, your son is coming home.
>Lír? He's none of mine. I picked him up on a doorstep where some peasant had left him. I was thinking that I had never been happy, and never had a son. It was pleasant at first, but it died quickly. There is only one thing that has ever made me happy.
>What is that?
>Do not mock me. I know very well what you have come for, and you know very well that I have them; try to take them if you can, but do not mock me!
>My lord, in all your castle, in all your realm, there is nothing of yours that I desire. Good day, your majesty.
>I know you! I almost knew you as soon as I saw you coming on the road, with your cook and your clown; since then, there is no movement of yours that has not betrayed you! A pace, a glance, a turn of the head, the flash of your throat as you breathe, even your way of standing perfectly still, they were all my spies! ...You made me wonder for a while. But your time is done.
>The tide is turning. Come and see. Come here. There. There they are. There they are! They are mine! They belong to me! The Red Bull gathered them for me one by one, and I bade him drive each one into the sea! Now, they live there. And every tide carries them within an easy step of the land, but they dare not come out of the water! They are afraid of the Red Bull. ...I like to watch them. They fill me with joy. ...The first time I felt it I thought I was going to die. I said to the Red Bull, "I must have them. I must have all of them, all there are, for nothing makes me happy, but their shining, and their grace." So the Red Bull caught them. Each time I see the unicorns, my unicorns, it is like that morning in the woods, and I am truly young, in spite of myself!
comes with bonus tits
Time Bandits would be playable with the Time Wizard rules, but chargen would be spout a bunch of random history/fantasy/myth bullshit in less than 2 minutes, then we get to pick 5 of those as our core powers...
and, everyone would be a dwarf.
with a random costume
not quite 80's, but....
Flight of Dragons
> neckbeards and nerds all
> death by science
I believe I recommended all Terry Gilliam movies.
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
The Zero Theorem
The only ones of his I can't recommend are Tideland, The Fisher King, and Jabberwocky because I haven't seen them, and The Brothers Grimm because it's not very good.
You want tits, boy? I'll give you tits... CARTOON tits.
> if you need me to actually name the movie, you should probably leave /tg/
Molly: No, it can't be. Can it be? Where have you been? Where have you been? Damn you! Where have you been?
Unicorn: I'm here now.
Molly: And where were you twenty years ago? Ten years ago? Where were you when I was new? When I was one of those innocent young maidens you always come to? How dare you! How dare you come to me now, when I am this!
Willow was George Lucas's best film
prove me wrong
Isn't that the one where shit just keeps going on and on until a random drunk russian guy wanders out of the woods and starts throwing grandma curses at the witches tower bringing it all to an end?
I was just this morning thinking "what ever happened to Val Kilmer?" Warwick Davis has a far superior career.
If you haven't heard yet, Bowie just died. That movie is virtually a primer on how to make good NPCs.
You're not wrong. The Star Wars movies are overrated. Good stuff, but it's more the effect they've had on popular culture than the movies themselves. It's like he has a few really good groundwork ideas and then half-asses exploring them.
80s /tg/ movies and nobody's mentioned Conan yet. Robert E. Howard's pulp novels are a cornerstone of classic D&D concepts.
He was also in the last third of The Barbarian, and his appearance there doesn't require suffering through The Destroyer just for him.
And he's the guy who gave us that glorious opening monlogue.
