ep189 lightning dogs 300THE LIGHTNING DOGS RIDE AGAIN!

Tune in as we brainstorm our 80s-inspired, post apocalyptic, action figure-ready, cartoon universe! The Lightning Dogs are everything we ever loved about 80s and early 90s sci-fi (and all affiliated merchandise) and we’re conceptualizing them live.

In this episode we finalize the characteristics and power set of our final three Lightning Dogs: Narisa, Kane, and Kid. When your physiology is altered by an exploding galactic transit device, all kinds of things can happen!  We explore a ton of possible power sets for these three and even revise some of the powers of the rest of the LD crew.  The evil Glampire and his minions now have some truly formidable adversaries – The wasteland will never be the same!

Dive in to this fan-favorite series and witness a legend in the making!

    You guys would really get alot of insight by reading the Cartoon Action Hour RPG, especially the Intro section of Season 2 and Season 3.

    Personally I feel like Dingo (leader), Angela (lancer aka Wolverine), Kyd (Sidekick), Pierre (Smart Guy), Beast Hound (Strong Guy) is the core group

    …Narissa and Cane should be secondary characters …one should be the Healer (probably Narissa) and the other the Mentor (probably Cane) who are only involved in occasional adventures. That would mean they may not even have powers or may not have dangerous powers…

      I’ve never heard of this until now, but I just looked it over and it sounds awesome! @Doug have you ever heard of it? Would love for that to be a contender in the next RPG 1-Shot Drive. Seems like it could be a great tool for coming up with neat ways to take on stories when we hit the writing phase.

      That first round of character roles pretty well nails those guys archetypes, but don’t rule Narisa and Kane out! LDs is intended to be an ensemble cast, putting all the characters in alternating central roles. A good example is Firefly. Mal is the obvious central character, but everyone around him is a huge player. They had a crew of 8 and they still pulled it off! Our 6 squad members should function much the same. Though Beasthound and the Wolfman A.I. are certainly supporting types.

      • Looking over an RPG ruleset specifically based on 80’s cartoons might be useful. I’m just wary of trying to actually pigeonhole these characters before they’re even finished.

        I would totally donate good $$$ to hear a Lightning Dogs RPG! Stretch goal for voicing a character would be uber sweet
