Other thread is getting huge, and also I saw this image on the shimmie and d'awwww.

4chan house thread: the old forums are over a year old now.
Relevant links: -- Image gallery. -- Discussion boards. -- General information. -- Character descriptions.

I can't promise to commit too much activity until this semester is over, but I'll be checking on this thread at least.
I should have plenty of time to spend when school isn't taking up a good chunk of my time.
Maybe we can get another boost over the next school break.
Summer didn't turn out to be the boon we were hoping for, but that's likely because we were just kinda waiting for something to happen.
Gotta get moving on actually generating some more content, and coordinating how it gets created, submitted, and integrated with the rest of the work already done.
This was, has been, and should continue to be a COLLABORATIVE EFFORT, and the small handful of people actually doing something doesn't really speak to that right now.
Hopefully with a little more activity and coordination we can change that a bit.
This gets alot less enjoyable when the members involved shrinks past a certain level.

I'll be going on a temporary hiatus until this semester is over.
When the next break comes, I'll be trying to be a bit more proactive in getting this project back off the ground.

You know what I just thought of? OK imagine this.

We see a panel where /co/ is slamming open a door. He looks beaten, torn and generally in a mess. His hat's facing down one side of his face and his hair is all messy.

We see a BEAUTIFUL house with /ck/ looking incredibly refined and /cm/ and /c/ sitting at a table wearing nice looking clothes.

/co/: DAMMNIT!... I mean... hey!~

We see /ck/ walk up to /co/ and smile at him. She's wearing a long red dress with fancy ornate jewelry on her and long white Gloves. /co/ just looks at her confused.

/ck/: Good morning dear. Tired from last night?

We cut to /c/ who wears mostly the same clothing only now it has several jewels and ornate features added to it, give it a more "ritzy" feeling.

/c/: Are we going to take the new /co/mobile out to /b/'s funeral?

We cut back to the torn and beaten /co/. However he looks much happier than normal.

/co/: Hmmmm... loving wife is a sex monger, kids are well behaved, /b/ is dead.

He's holding up his arms with a look of sheer joy now.


We see /co/ sit down at the table.

/co/: /ck/ dear. Would you please hand me a comic?

We cut to /ck/ who looks confused.

/ck/: Comic? What's a comic?

Several screaming "DO NOT WANT" reaction faces from /co/ ensue.

He runs out.

We cut to the three of them looking confused as a TV plays in the background.

TV: Coming soon! Miracleman 4. The last in these groundbreaking epics of animated features, written by Alan Moore and directed by Brad Bird. Rated R. This film is not suitable for minors.

We cut to the three of them looking at the TV screen.

/ck/: Hmmm... another one.

I see what you did there.


Excellent choice on the Simpsons reference.
It would be funny to see in execution after a little revision.

To be fair, /o/ has seen next to zero attention.
What little has been given him lately was by Helpful /co/mrade.
I don't really have much say in the matter though, since most of my thoughts have been focused on what I see as the core group.

File: 126051576245.jpg-(9.05KB, 250x188, 250px-Brain_Eating_Meteor.jpg)
You know I had a little Idea of /co/nrad playing out that song from billy and mandy little Rock of horror, It the song where Billy help an evil meteor to eat everyone's brains
/co/nrad is billy, Mandy can be /ck/ but at the end they eat the meteor
Well I need help to make a test comic because I can't draw
So what you all think?

/co/ is not retarded and idiotic like Billy, and while most of the cast is certainly eccentric and over-the-top, there's nobody in the cast that strikes me as being cynical and amoral like Mandy

A few things:
there has been a little bit of info about /h/ added to the wiki. /h/ is a (rather small) college student who is kind of a slacker, and was roped into being /d/'s sex shop covergirl. But I guess she kind of likes it, if it didn't take so much effort...

There should also be end-of-'episode' segments like such as a library segment with /rs/, a "cooking with /ck/" segment, and a "drawing with /i/" segment that /ic/ always interrupts and contradicts.


I know, I was thinking it be awesome to see because no one posts any on this thread any more

This isn't /x/-tan, it's Alan Moore-tan but I would like to pretend it's /x/-tan in high school before the "incident with her eye".

A contribution from /m/

We present to you /m/-tan!

/m/ is bipolar, she can hate something one second and then praise the same thing to heaven after, but is generally a nice person in calm-before-the-storm mode.

/m/ is elitist and has a love-hate relationship with /a/

/m/ occasionally wears a cardboard box that says Gundam on it, and thinks she is Gundam

/m/ is best friends with /toy/ and considers /co/ and /tg/ bros

Probably nothing of substance, but I wrote a whole bunch of gay sex involving /a/ and /co/ here, while the thread is still up:

I've also got it saved to a .doc file, for uploading later when the thread inevitably blanks out.

you can post it in /write/:

/m/ seems to be somewhat schizophrenic in their self-descriptions. There have been like four different ways /m/ is portrayed and they are all different. I personally favor the "hotblooded pretty space-warrior"

Good news!

the front page of has been updated.

Also, someone drew this on /co/. 1/3

File: 126261533976.png-(160.20KB, 1250x587, co tg3.png)

The hat makes me think that it's /y/ barging through the door.
The last panel gave me a good laugh.

Personality/Habits/Hobbies/Behavior: /m/ spends most of his time preparing for some epic battle, constantly tinkering and training, upgrading his mech and the various appliances around the house.
/m/ welcomes a challenge, and lives for a chance to prove that he is the hero that he knows himself to be. /m/ is oblivious to the advances of the various female characters swooning over him, often comically so.
He also goes out of his way to be "manly", which has an opposite effect on the males of 4chan house, since most write him off as a homo.
He does enjoy watching mecha anime series to relax. This is the one time /a/ can hang out with him and not freak out over how damn pretty he is.
Special Power: Quite simply, /m/ keeps a scopedog in the garage. That's all the power he needs.
Unfortunately, he's never been able to get it fully functional on his own. Eventually he succeeds with /g/'s help near the beginning of the /b/ invasion.
Relationships: /m/ gets along well with /g/, since they both enjoy tinkering/upgrading things, and can work together on /m/'s mech. /e/ is constantly hounding him for attention, which he is completely oblivious to. He enjoys his regular anime sessions with /a/ and /toy/, though it seems that /a/ can't tolerate him the rest of the time for some reason. He plays with /toy/ on occasion, and helps her construct models from various mecha series.
Job: Possibly mechanic, currently undetermined.

/k/ - Weapons
Gender/Physical Description: Male, mid-thirties to early forties. Tall and lean, with brown hair and sideburns that go almost all the way down his jawline. He wears a trucker hat, sunglasses, hunting vest, white t-shirt, blue jeans, and hiking boots.
Personality/Habits/Hobbies/Behavior etc.: He loves his guns, which is probably an understatement, and is an expert marksman with almost everything.
Is very protective of the 4chan house and those that live there, once even going so far as to mine the front lawn. For obvious reasons, he was forced to remove them. He is always ready for a fight and is difficult to catch off-guard.
Special Power: No matter where he is, /k/ always has a weapon hidden nearby. He also has very deep contacts in both the US military and the black market.
Relationships: /an/'s hunting buddy and possible romantic interest. Friends with /trv/, but /trv/ is rarely there. Argues constantly with /v/ and /m/, especially about the impracticality of many of the weapons and vehicles that /v/ idolizes in his games and /m/ tries to build. Will sometimes participate in various wargames with /tg/ but is very critical of their accuracy or lack thereof. He gets along well with most of his fellow tenants, and he sees himself as their protector.
Job: Retired. Previously: Unknown position in the U.S. army, followed by a brief stint as a professional bodyguard.
/an/ - Animals/Nature
Gender/Physical Description: Female. Shoulder length chestnut hair, usually tied up or away from her face in some way. Light freckles, hazel eyes. Muscular build. Usually wears practical clothing, (overalls, jeans, etc).
Personality/Habits/Hobbies/Behavior etc.: Tomboyish, but occasionally wears girly clothing, (old fashioned, sundresses, etc), and in a gimmick-y way ends up turning heads of the other boards. Loves and respects all animals, but despises the extremes- whether that be an animal abuser or PETA. Has many, many pets, almost all which are named Biscuit - including a Velociraptor and some horrible abomination that looks like a cross between carp and elephant. Very respectful of nature in general, and enjoys gardening, hunting, and fishing. She likes teaching others about the world of animals and nature and how to understand and share the world with animals. Inquisitive about what makes animals behave the way they do, and what makes them so special. Although she’s polite and well mannered, she’s not afraid to speak her mind. She has a pet spider (species undetermined) who lives in her hair - everyone is afraid to touch her because of that, except /k/.
Special Power: None(?) Maybe animal empathy.
Relationships: Married to /k/, who is also her childhood friend. They wed before he joined the military, and she grew closer to animals and nature while he was away from her out of loneliness. Gets along well with /ck/, and she usually provides ingredients for /ck/’s cooking. Is a big sister figure, and often plays with /c/ and teaches the young girl about animals - usually the cute, fluffy kinds.
Job: Veterinarian
Maybes: Greenhouse attachment? Small garden? Potted plants on roof?

Even if i don't sit at the cool kids table around here, Here's my idea for /o/.

/o/- Auto
Gender/Physical Description: An old(mid 60's) grey haired man. Very slim build and a bit short(5'9"). Bones showing through hands. Shakes constantly similar to someone with parkinsons, Hands become as steady as a surgeon when he's holding a wheel or a wrench. Wears mainly nomex racing suits, oil stained ancient coveralls, and occasionally a polo shirt with neatly pressed trousers, and driving loafers. Drives a caterham super 7.

Personality/Habits/Hobbies/Behavior: Never ever ever happy with anything. His cars, his performance on track, his peers, his friends. Can name something wrong with any car you can present him with. Extremely bitter. Possibly the most insufferable of all the boards. When he sits in a chair, he constantly bounces his right leg on the ball of his foot, and taps his fingers on his knee. He used to race in rallies and touring cars in the mid 50's through the 60's, and retired in the early 90's. Was snubbed for le mans and Race Of Champions on numerous occasions for much much younger drivers. Has thousands of stories aobut his younger days, Like punching cale yarbrough in the face in a bar brawl, and Parnelli Jones still possessing his 10mm deep well socket.

Special Power:Very strong focus, Can lift enormous car parts for such a small man. Encyclopedic knowledge of everything automotive.

Relationships: Hates everyone, espically /n/ and /trv/.

Job:Retired. SCCA Flagman and volunteer driving instructor on weekends.

/fk/ is an infant boy. Any text used with him must be in Comic Sans.

/z/ is a malnourished man who is strapped to a wooden board wearing a straight jacket and muzzle. He has a sheet of paper with a picture of a dick covered in bees taped to the front of him.

/5/ is an adult man who wears an old-timey judge's powdered wig and carries 5 glowsticks with him at all times. He cannot talk. Possibly a ghost.

These board-tans live either behind /x/'s / wall or in her mirror, or in a secret basement (think Josef Fritzl).

Yes that /y/, thanks for making it Zecro
/z/ should a bee hive that in the tree that at the side of the house that no one was to deal with

I didn't actually make that comic, it was anonymous in /co/. And yes to /z/ being just a beehive. explains that /z/ was made for a /z/-ban which forwards you from /b/ to /z/ if you are /z/-banned.

/5/ should live in the basement at first and then sometimes show up in mirrors around the house doing a silly dance.

There's no real story of how anyone came to actually be in 4chan house, and I'm thinking that it just makes the most sense for new personas to simply appear in their rooms, along with their posessions.

Thanks for writing that up. We've never had anything on /o/, so I'm going to add what you wrote to the cast writeup.

That's the info on the cast page on 1d4chan.

In addition, there are several threads now for character discussion:

Wait, I think the alternative for /o/ was inspired by John Travolta a la Grease. Maybe he was a playboy racer in his youth and that's why he's so bitter now.

wut up thread

They might not be but I think some of them are

1. Earth-11: A story about most of the main characters getting 63'd by a invention/formula created by /d/. /a/ enjoys it except that she has large breasts now and she misses her DFC.

2. Date Night: /a/ forces /v/ to take her out since they haven't been on a date for months, and ask /co/ and /ck/ to watch /c/ for the night. /ck/ agrees even though /co/ doesn't want to. The story splits between the /a/ & /v/'s date and /co/ & /ck/'s adventure in babysitting.


I support everything /tg/x/. I'm a huge faggot that way.

Debating if I should stop being an ass and actually contact you guys on MSN, as seeing that little to nothing (new) is posted on 4chan, and it might give me more purpose in actually sketching shit again.

>>1. Earth-11: A story about most of the main characters getting 63'd by a invention/formula created by /d/. /a/ enjoys it except that she has large breasts now and she misses her DFC.

a rule 63'd /a/ would result in a tough dykish woman actually...


>>2. Date Night: /a/ forces /v/ to take her out since they haven't been on a date for months, and ask /co/ and /ck/ to watch /c/ for the night. /ck/ agrees even though /co/ doesn't want to. The story splits between the /a/ & /v/'s date and /co/ & /ck/'s adventure in babysitting.

i can't imagine /a/ and /v/ having a normal date. theyd be more like "hate dates" and moments of them trolling each other ( which they both secretly enjoy i imagine) one of them forcing the otehr into a date would be an awkward display of dominance to get the other to submit to the date, which would be pretty much one of them being forced to buy the other a meal and forcing a blowjob.

I like where this is going.

We're doing it man. We're making it happen.

edit: >>21274


im glad you enjoy my attention to anatomy

anyone interested in being my colorist/inker?

I rather enjoyed how it was labeled.

Yes, it's very tsun-tsun.

Damnit Pride, I'm not supposed to be a gooshy faggot. Stop making me d'aww over /tg/x/.

We gotta start working more on the other boards-tans
There WAY too much of /a//v/co/ck/tg/x/c/i/ic/

That is debateable, really.

The reason those boards have the most attention is because they are popular and they can be personified easily, both due to their content and their community.

Take, for example, /f/ or /gif/. How do we identify them differently from /b/ other than 'they're animated'. Hell, how do we identify them from each other? All one has to pull from is the memes of the boards. I'm not aware of any particular community feel to them.

Its the same reason /h/ and /s/ aren't done up. The boards are about subject matter, not about a 'community', as it were. There's no real substance to the board beyond what it provides.

/a/, /v/, /tg/, /co/, and others are more than providing images of something. There are discussions, interactions... They are internet communities more than simply imageboards. this makes them far easier to personify, because each has their own 'feel', and they do feel more 'alive' than other boards.

This isn't to say we should only stick to a few boards. I mean, look at /fa/, which we can all agree on the personality, considering how /fa/ posters act. /cgl/ has a level of drama and could also have that needed 'spark' to personify.

But more importantly, quality, not quantity. I don't think the project is big enough to try and encompass every board 4chan has. Focus on what does have a distinct feel and run with that.

else we'll have 17 boards that have nothing other than SAUCE NAO FGT in different flavors.


On the contrary, the boards with less community feel only give more room for personification, because you're not tied down to anything. /rs/ doesn't even have a discussion feature, but I kind of like the "hot librarian slut" persona he has so far.

I like to think that we're focusing on the more popular boards because we want to solidify their characters: there's not that much room for interpretation, and this makes working on the character easy. That is to say, the boards that get talked about the most are the easiest to personify. Go on /co/ and look at how they see themselves, and you'll see why /co/ is a do-good crime-fighter by night and comic neeeeerd by day. Or lurk /a/ and /v/ and you'll see why their characters are so tsundere for each other.

But >>21292 raises a valid point, because boards like /g/ don't really have a developed persona, even though they should. I don't even know where /m/ is going, either, because there hasn't really been a good discussion about it. /cgl/ is a pretty unique place with enough individuality, but the writeup on the cast page is a placeholder which was never discussed. Hell, /b/ wasn't discussed that much, it's still mostly my writeup on the cast page, but people seem to agree with it maybe.

The boards I would say that don't have any sort of distinctive flavor are probably /gif/, /h/, /hc/, /hr/, /r/, /s/, /t/, /w/, /wg/, and /rs/.

Also note that their character bios are pretty much bare, if they exist at all. That's not to say they can't or shouldn't be personified, it's just harder because it's more ambiguous (an essay about a broad subject is harder to write than an essay about a specific subject).

Discussion is good, discuss away. If you don't care about the background characters with less flavor, /cgl/, /m/, and /g/ should be fleshed out. If you discuss it, they will come.

Maybe it's just me, then. But I still think the 'harder to design' tans just might not be worth it, given lack of material to work with. But that's hardly gospel. Just my opinion.

you're not the only one, but I don't want to close any doors.

and /m/-tan really needs to be talked about

File: 126328709477.png-(163.01KB, 500x766, e-grumpy.png)
Got bored. Have some /e/.

Damn. S'been ages since I doodled.

>>21294 >>21293 >>21296 >>21298
Holy crap you two did you both need to talk about all that, I know that the other board-tans will be hard to do but we still have to do it

File: 126333877243.png-(161.28KB, 933x548, e-clutz.png)
I just think one shouldn't force it for the sake of 'just for completeness'. This isn't a game we can get 100% on. No need to squeeze out inferior designs just for the sake of it.

Quality of quantity. Do what you know you can do well. If someone else wants to work on the other boards, power to them. But I just don't think it worthwhile for characters that may just not end up being used that much anyways.

More /e/ scribblings. My ability to draw anatomy is fucking rusty. Serves me right to go so long without.

So I was told about this thread... {unrelated pic I drew}

be patient
i will get to /e/ in time

File: 126342218713.jpg-(53.39KB, 540x400, napalm_kim_phuc.jpg)
O hai zecro, you in charge 'round here?

We're just chillin' out, man. What're you looking for?

In a facilitator kind of sense.

Major characters will be more developed than minor characters. Not everyone needs to be deeeeep, but characters like /co/ who will probably show up a lot but don't really have any motivation guiding them need some work.

I'm still banned from AC, maybe I'll make a new Alias on this laptop and get back into shit, as a new person :O

you are refering to character tiers...

MAIN CHARACTERS (or primary)

main characters- Fry, Leela, Bender
seconday characters- Hermes, Amy, Professor
reocurring- Mom, Roberto, Calculon

but then we get into "well, who's a main character?" territory.

there's a character discussion board, if you want to start a thread about a particular character:

not main characters...

the ones that get the most focus and developement

So all of them >>21292

not all of them will be getting the same attention and focus.

Why not have the same attention?

because we only have so much time, concentration, and creative abilities.

that's it, there's no other good reason not to finish them all. just because we're prioritizing right now doesn't mean we should later.

on that note, go hang out in /char/ and contribute to some discussions

Apparently I've been missing alot over the past week or so.
Great to see some new art, and a new artist along with it.

I think that Ihsan and I are on the same page concerning just how how much, and how deeply we need to work on characterization.
Not everybody needs an equal share of the spotlight, and we certainly don't need to get obsessed with "completion" in terms of creating characters.

I'm not sure that I agree with /h/ not having a community though.
From my experience there, it's a much different feel from the other boards I once frequented (/e/ and /d/).
It's a strange thought that my main reason for returning to /h/ might be "for research".

Drawfag's point about PRIMARY characters, rather than MAIN characters is an excellent one as well.
While we may have a focus insofar as who sees the most attention, we shouldn't just shove all else aside.
Deciding to place the characters into tiers may very well just end up in some getting ignored for no reason other than their rank.
Best to keep in mind who is going to see the most attention, and focus on representing them well, before we add too much of the rest of the peanut gallery.

On the subject of the silly idea surrounding /d/ and some sort of 63 formula.
I may or may not run with that when I next sit down to do some writing.
I already had a storyline I was working on between /a/ and /d/ that touched on that a little, but seeing it in a larger context might be fun.
I should be back to writing within a few hours actually.
I'm going to try and get some progress made this week to make up for my long absence and lack of contribution.

Can /sp/ get a character that isn't fucking retarded?

That depends. Can we come up for an idea for /sp/ that isn't fucking retarded?
Last I heard, he was the big black athletic guy with an attitude. That was also /sp/'s idea (last I heard).

Nobody's really had much of a use for him story-wise just yet.
Nothing stopping anybody from taking another stab at the character.
I just know that I'm not the one who's going to be doing it, seeing as how I've hardly ever been there.

File: 126389479522.png-(327.96KB, 946x763, ecchi.png)
Decided to do a full color pic of /e/!
I used an old reference which is why she has brown hair and green eyes

/b/'s design hasn't been finalized yet (as much as a boardtan can be at least), right? I think I've come up with an okay idea for his character.

/b/, while certainly never normal, once used to be pretty consistent. He was friends (if you can call it that) with /g/uro, due to their love of guro, and even just gore in general. However, when /g/uro (died/moved/however you'd use it in story, I'm going with died in this post), /b/ was devastated, as it was the only board that ever liked him in the least. All other boards hated him, were disgusted with him. This is where the /b/ of the present comes from.

Shortly after /g/uro's death, /b/ was diagnosed with DID. He had a ton of different personalities, and all of them knew of the others with the exception of his main personality, which nobody ever really sees anywhere. (Basically, all the different faces of /b/. Raid coordinators, pranksters, all-around jackasses, newfags, oldfags, trolls that pick on himself, and so on. None are nice, though the more clever personalities are quite good at acting. /b/ can have his moments though.)

This leads to the /b/ of the present. The most notable of /b/'s personalities is a raid coordinator, wanting to cause the greatest amount of chaos as possible. He is able to motivate/gather faceless hordes of people from anywhere to join him (or, as has been suggested before, is able to summon them).

Optional: His fondness of /g/uro could be used as a reason for the whole boxxy incident as one personality (or more) took a liking to boxxy while the others all hated her for taking /g/uro's place and thus they pulled a bunch of crazy junk to force boxxy to move far away from the 4chan House where /b/ would never see her again.

This even works out no matter what you make him look like. Heck, he could even look different depending what personality he's in, from being a rather normal average looking loner to spewing a bunch of memes and drawing them all over himself and his clothes like a loser.

i have been doing some work on /b/ at the moment.
only rough sketches, but this pic was my starting point.

File: 126399665287.jpg-(69.24KB, 416x260, hero3_1.jpg)
he will have hair, i just feel this battered and pent up explosive look from within is a good starting point.
also scars.

because /b/ the board is difficult to describe, /b/ the character is also hard to describe. You can't pigeonhole /b/ into any kind of static description, because /b/ itself is never in agreement on anything (yes, even raids).

...which is what led to the character description on 1d4chan. There's a paragraph there but it doesn't actually SAY anything other than "contradictory and unpredictable prankster who hates everything including himself."

That's probably the best way of handling the character, have him be a kind of wild card that fits any situation, as long as he doesn't take anything seriously. He could be knowledgeable and helpful or clueless and provocative. (At the rate we're going he'll probably end up as knowledgeable and provocative, aka a sort of antagonist.)

It might be an interesting character concept to have /b/ be, in a sense, already dead. He has little to no control over what he does, because he's at the mercy of Anonymous and Anonymous is generally merciless (but not always!). Since /b/ is already dead, he's' not concerned with self-preservation or much of anything else. (Anonymous as a force on /b/ doesn't really happen until late '04 when shii convinces moot to turn on FORCED_ANON. Until mid '04, moot was encouraging users to namefag.)

I'm going to pass on discussing his role in the story because /b/ has been said to be either the landlord, or the antagonist, or not even involved at all. /b/ can't be not involved, but /b/ doesn't really interact with the other boards unless it's hostile. Then it just begs the question of why have him at all if he doesn't do anything except interrupt. There are better characters for comic relief. (As an aside, I would posit that /b/ right now is a pretty friendly place.)

As far as an actual character design, I would posit that /b/'s form changes either gradually or suddenly and unpredictably. i.e. From an overweight cynical man to a normal hipster youth. Not that /b/ has any control over it. Maybe his one consistent trait might be eyes with a pronounced white iris that changes to black when he is in control of minions.


When I think of /b/, I think of the man who had it all. Immortality, invincibility, telepathy, the works. The man who went wild abusing his powers, changing himself as often as he wanted, pushing his lifestyle to the limits, living long enough to hit the heights man was never meant to reach, and staying in that wild state for years, decades, centuries. Even if he was eventually tired of certain extremes, he could always push in other directions eventually. Happiness, sadness, anger, irritance, depression, bliss; nerdy, casual, virgin, stallion, sane, insane - all limits, trascended by man!

What do you get for the man who has everything?

/b/ is the man who has done and seen everything. The man who wished for immortality and now wants to die. The man who wished he never saw what he had seen, if only that he could stimulated with new experiences again. /b/ stands for /b/urnt out.

i see /b/ as a sorta combo of the comedian from watchmen and tetsuo from akira.

a guy who can see the world for what it really is, and chooses to be deliberately immoral out of fear, sadness and pure loneliness... is very unpredictable and cannot control what he is becoming.

/b/ is a real mystery. He's equally likely to put out a foot to trip small children running by, call people faggots, and write badly-spelled graffiti on the side of a building as he is to saddle up and actually do something halfway constructive. Nothing /b/ does could ever be considered nice; however, there's no denying that when /b/ wants to, he can do some pretty big shit. He's got a natural talent for causing chaos and mayhem, and seems to revel in doing so. Nobody is his friend, and any partnership with him is tenuous at best and parasitic at worst. Asking /b/ for help with anything will likely just get you called a faggot for your troubles, but if the mood takes him, he will sometimes deliver what you're looking for. Especially if what you're looking for is porn. /b/ stays out of the way of everyone else much of the time, though woe betide the person he decides to fuck with when he gets too bored. Despite all his faults, however, there is one thing /b/ likes: cats. /b/ loves cats and hates seeing them harmed, and will go to any length to bring vengeance down on anyone who does. /b/'s love of chaos and mayhem attracts others with similar attitudes like moths to a fire, and he has an almost supernatural level of control over them.

That's a surprisingly astute observation Drawfag.
Geez I'm glad you and Ihsan came along.
It's been a while since we had anybody new that we could count on to discuss this stuff seriously.
More writefaggotry on the way from me btw. Should have something for you guys by next week.

Huu boy. I don't think I can even touch on /b/ without going into essay mode. Its just so complex.

I think though, personally, I see /b/ as someone who isn't as deep and meaningful as we'd try to portray them. Not in an insulting manner, but simple in that /b/ has a motive, and /b/ acts on that motive. There are no underlying features other than that.

/b/ exists for self gratification and emotional provocation. Interestingly, I can parallel /b/ to /d/. But where /d/'s motivations lead towards sexual and emotional gratification in a pleasurable resolve, /b/ does so for a humorous resolve, with possibly a far more sadistic bend. The more I think about it, the more both seem alike, though it is their contrasts that set them apart.

That contrast is in what they want out of their interactions with others. And I'm trying to scrape together the words for it. /d/ is about being fulfilled, being sated. /b/ is about being amused, being stimulated. Neither has any real barriers or social trappings preventing these persuits, (though perhaps /d/ could be contrasted as actually caring for the partners in her 'interactions', whereas /b/ doesn't have moral qualms about the emotional stability of his 'partners' afterwards)

Like I said... I could do essays on overthinking this shit.

Welcome to my world. When I first started trying to do a character writeup, I let it run away from me in a hurry. It can be hard to concentrate an idea down far enough, where it's at the point that most of what's left is easily recognizable and makes good sense outside of my own head. /b/ is a beast that I don't really have enough on to tangle with. I've spent more time loathing it's incursions into /d/ than anything else. Not exactly the best source of inspiration for basing a character on. Especially considering the diversity of the board.

One of the big things I'll argue, though, is that /b/ doesn't hate. Hate is only an observational conclusion based on what /b/ does. But he doesn't cross the road to punch you in the face because he hates you, he does so because he thinks it'd be funny. He's sadistic and cruel, but not hateful or spiteful. In fact, one might think of /b/ as one of the most animate and happy boards, if only if you understand /b/'s own twisted logic.

He doesn't only go out of his way to be cruel to you. he can also go out of his way to be (kind of) a stand up fellow. He doesn't do good things because of good intentions, but only because 'it was funny at the time'. He's the kind that'd kick the school bully in the dick and laugh, if only because he perceived it to be funnier to make the big guy cry, rather than the runt said bully was smashing in. He's the sort to go after the biggest junkyard dog asshole he can find, just to get emotionally gratified knowing he's a bigger asshole.

the true face of /b/

I figure whenever /b/'s not bothering the other board-tans (or random passerby), he'd be somewhere laughing at his own jokes.

this is some QUALITY animation right here.

in my defense, frame#1 actually looks pretty good (because I did not draw it)


thats interesting little animation you made ther chief lol.

im no animator per say, but had i known some one woulda attemped this i would have made more angles.

Who made the first frame?


i guess i did.

this was the source.

or spying on the other boardtans (particulary /x/)

File: 126438829979.png-(60.58KB, 440x650, a face.png)
yep, that's the source. I can't actually draw, but tracing is pretty OK. Someone was drawing /po/-tan in /gen/ and I thought it was hilarious, so

also, fuckin vectors man. fuckin vectors.

Jan. 25, 2009 - new 4chan boards
/3/ - 3DCG
/adv/ - Advice
/int/ - International
/lit/ - Literature
/new/ - News (when this turns into /stormfront/ again, he's taking it back down)
/sci/ - Science and Maths

all this /b/ discussion as a character has got me wanting to write up an episode about him from HIS perspective....

I imagine /3/ to be a relative of /i/ and /ic/.

>/adv/, /lit/, /sci/, /int/ and /3/ are all females wearing glasses. A sexy therapist, a librarian Empowered lookalike, a quirky ginger tomboy, a world class explorer/Lara Croft type and a short busty nerdy programmer girl, respectively.

/adv/- a new and improved robot to replace /r9k/
effective AND useful.

/3/- james cameron

/int/- the lara croft esque explorer

/lit/- sexy librarian chick

/sci/- youtube "pi max cohen" this is that guy.

>/3/ is James Cameron
That's just funny

/new/ is a zombie news anchorman who is bias about every thing he reports.

Okay, fine.

I can't draw, but the first thing I'd do is get rid of the depiction of /sp/ being huge, instead, he'd probably be more lithe, like a basketball player or something. And an ex-jock type. For the most part /sp/ is pretty docile unless you bring up actual sports.

I guess he doesn't interact with too many boards except /o/ (for motorsports) and a friendly rivalry type with /fit/, or he's pissing on /mu/. /a/ picks on him a lot.

/sp/ has an extreme distaste for both gridiron and association football, and at other times loves either sport. Also, I guess every once in a while he has a roid rage and he turns into HULK SMASH or something.

File: 126445362889.jpg-(126.11KB, 800x485, asdf.jpg)

He probably also wears a sport jersey around the house. I'm gonna go with hockey for now because that's the most identifiable.

This is what I slapped together in ms paint in 30 seconds.

i liked /sp/ being hueg...

its funny but true...

/3/ should totally be modeled after him.

/3/ - 3DCG - what is this I don't know
/adv/ - Advice - a robot gpsie like the one in futurama but younger looking
/int/ - International - how about a girl who looks like the blondel from from Uncharted 2
maybe she be like /trv/ but she will show up in the house unlike /trv/ who only sends post cards
/lit/ - Literature- if she going to be a librarian chick then lets make her be the younger sister of /rs/ who isn't slutty like her brother
Maybe bro's with /co/ and /a/
/sci/ - Science and Maths - ok this one has to be a guy, friends with /g/. doesnt have to look like a really nerdy guy just a guy who happens to like science and math

So what you all think?

/sp/ is pretty much every high school-jock-that-didn't-make-it-to-the-big-leagues type, ever. If you're into that go for it, but I just never saw /sp/ that way.

considering /co/'s practically been substitute /lit/ for some time now, I propose /lit/ actually be /co/'s sister. Make more sense to me.

An e/lit/ist younger sister who complains about her manchild brother not acting like a adult. Make her like 20-22 and you got yourself a deal.

File: 12644657418.jpg-(191.90KB, 579x1014, ae-tan.jpg)
/b/ has had Lithursday for a long time. ED has an article about it, which includes instructions on how to evade the Jpg/Rar prohibition.

Familial relations should be avoided, just because it cheapens the relationships between the characters. (I.e. /i/ and /ic/ have an Unwilling Mentor/Persisten Pupil relationship which is superior to brother/sister.)

Keep in mind that the new boards haven't been stable for long enough to represent them well. /new/ being a zombie strikes my fancy, /adv/ should be "a therapist with her own mental issues," /int/ might be a cultural anthropologist or something, /lit/ being a not-slutty librarian to foil /rs/ works out well, /sci/ should be a bit of a mad scientist (DIY board?)

/3/ was around for a month when there was /ib/ and /ip/ (2006?)

/sp/ was supposed to have been kicked out of the pro leagues for some reason he never talks about (steroids). I'd prefer him to remain a HUEG guy, but I'm not going to insist on it.

Pic is only tangentially related, it's æ-tan

>>/new/ is a zombie news anchorman who is bias about every thing he reports.

I really like this idea.

So have her be /co/'s younger sister of maybe 8 years making /co/ 30 if she 22 or 28 if she 20
I'll like it if we agree on she being 20 and /co/ 28

So then maybe we should have some way of telling that she is related to /co/, maybe they wear the same hat?
Or something that combines a librarian look with a little bit of a super hero look?

I figured somebody would bring this up.
I really don't want to discourage people from contributing, but I was hoping we could get more work done on the boards we have been focusing on first.
The boards that popped up recently aren't even a week old yet. How can we presume to accurately personify something we have so little experience with?
I'm not saying that they shouldn't have characters, I just don't think that they warrant much attention at present.
We've already got a laundry list of boards that we haven't done, and frankly, I'm okay with leaving that list where it is for a while.
In my opinion, it is better to focus on what we know well, so that we can do a better job in how we represent it.
Once again, I'm not trying to discourage contribution, I'm merely asking for focus.
If we insist on having every board personified, and all to an equal degree, we are going to have trouble making any progress that is visible from outside of our little group.
I don't mean to be a spoilsport here, but we've already been over a similar issue a few times before.

Besides, the new boards need time do develop.
Also James Cameron isn't a 3D artist, he's just big into the technology. So I don't feel like he would be an accurate fit anyway.

disagree, hes a HUGE 3D advocate and believes it should be used in place ACTUAL actors.

hes a huge elitist about it too.

read his interviews and you will see how well he embodies /3/.

/3/ is already a huge CG snob, the bigger special effects snob is james cameron himself.

also, james cameron is big on taking credit for other people's work. so its extra appropriate that he is the model for /3/.

all /3/ cares about is how good the effects is and not how good the story is.

Now you're just being ridiculous.

I agree with Victimless Crime, the new boards should hold a lesser priority than the boards we're already fumbling with, being 3 days old at this point

agree, wait

As someone who has lived in /3/ sinse its creation, I'd have to disagree.
Give it about another month and we'll see how it is.

But he must wear a snazzy pair of traditional 3D glasses, and I do like the idea of him being related to the art boards.

So James Cameron is the new George Lucas?

Guys, I was thinking. /h/ is an essential and significant board on 4chan, right? So far any personifications have gone as essentially a more explicit /s/ or /e/. Lets not however, forget the true meaning of hentai, shall we? What if /h/ personified not so much the content of the board (as /d/ and /e/ would) but rather those who cohabited it (as /a/, /g/ /v/, /co/ and all the others do). This way we could solidify /h/'s role. He(?) would be a very welcome member to the cast, in my opinion. It's ludicrous to present a certain incarnation of 4chan while neglecting /h/, no?

yeah, /h/-tan isn't really fleshed out at all. We've been working under the assumption that /h/-tan becomes extorted to being /d/'s model and having /h/-tan be a perverted anime nerd would force a re-think of that.

Elaborate on your idea, though, if you want.

Maybe /h/ is a victim of its own overactive imagination? It doesn't really set out to do porn things but everything tends to end up erotic one way or another, playing off old porn tropes like "Pizza Delivery" in particular.

I think I read a comic like this.

A guy who life is a porn movie. Everywhere he goes, he meets sexy women who want to have sex with him no matter if he wants it or not. He ends up in a mental hospital because of it but it doesn't stop the women from coming. I think it was one of the Flinch comics but I'm not sure.

Personally I think that /h/ should be a nympho that attempts to act like she a proper lady/timid.


Have /h/ be this character that indirectly sets off a series of events that leads to other people fucking each others brains out. He's like this eternal voyeur, and everywhere he goes something cocks up and the next thing you know "O-oneechan, fill me up with your cum!" and these two kids he walks by are just banging like mad. And it's even funnier because /h/ has erectile dysfunction.

i approve of this and feel strongly that this concept would be very useful and can lead to comedic genius.

I disagree. Sure it could be funny but it doesn't really reflect /h/ in any way. At least >>22345 represents that subject matter of the board. Your idea just seems like a random personality arbitrarily assigned to a board.

> Your idea just seems like a random personality arbitrarily assigned to a board.

Well, yes. I assumed that was the whole point of this exercise, given what we have so far.

"guy whose life is an inadvertent porn movie" might work well for /gif/. /gif/ is pretty much just porn clips so he's supposed to be like an amateur porn maker or something.

/d/ is already a total nymphomaniac, and /h/ being her unwilling model/employee kind of makes sense.

/h/ is supposed to love romance novels, so maybe she's still got an active libido, just more imagination? it doesn't make sense to have /h/ be a fanservice character either, because that's /e/...

>>Well, yes. I assumed that was the whole point of this exercise, given what we have so far.

they need to at least resemble the board's community or subject matter

/d/ - sex crazed deviant monster
/e/ - voyeur/exhibitionist, cringes at the very idea of sex but wants to be the center of attention
/h/ - more normal nympho, wants sex all the time but in keeping with the whole submissive japanese thing she is always trying to act prim and proper (she is tsundere for sex)

But of course, just being taken out of the blue is one of /h/'s biggest fantasies.

Just like a real woman!

I support /gif/ for guy whose life is an inadvertent porn movie.

Also I posted a script about /a/ and /v/ and implications on /write/.

This is a terrible idea and needs a major overhaul if you want it to wor-, Aw fuck it, this is just bad.

the worst.

>Also I posted a script about /a/ and /v/ and implications on /write/

captures both boards and their relationship very well.

so yeah, /lit/ just took /ck/ from /co/ and is now claiming to be the best board on 4chan, so because of this /co/ want /lit/'s head on a spike
so /co/ is planning to go to war

omg even thou /lit/ is a new board, them fuckers move fffffffffffffffffffaaaaaaaaassssssst


Now it looks like /co/ is going with /d/

well that suck
we need drawings of /co/nrad
maybe like a mini strip of most of the other girls trying to cheer him up but he is just zone out


Me too, I feel like /3/ should be /ic/'s younger brother... of course they'd absolutely hate each other...

/3/'s population is half underageb& CG noobs, half working professionals that don't want people to know they post on 4chan (this results in them not posting their previous work that often, in hopes they can't be recognized). So I guess a younger guy that's really good at what he does? But doesn't show his CG work unless he deems them worthy? Or trying to brag to /ic/ but he doesn't give a damn... Anyways, being a CG snob is a must.

He worships Avatar and has no idea what happened during the movie if you asked him. (But he's secretly James Cameron, or pretends to be).

Lastly, /co/ probably would hate him with all the 2D vs 3D animation rage threads happening all the time. Him yelling "YOU RUIN ALL THAT IS GOOD IN THE WORLD" at /3/ comes to mind (even though technically he's not to blame).

Now I'm thinking /3/'s James Cameron alter ego as a villain for /co/nrad but then again it's 3 am, I have no idea what the hell I'm talking about.

Oh wait fuck that turns out it was a gay trap for /cm/ and /d/ they set up so they can get /co/
/ck/ had no idea what was going on


But it didn't work, so /co/ck/ is safe...?
I guess /lit/ was oblivious as well, besides /sci/ yelling at him for cheating (but that was a false alarm anyways).

/co/'s new villain is /cm/
that evil bastard


I'm okay with this.

Maybe we should write a story about the one anniversary of /co/ & /ck/'s marriage which is Feb. 13. I also find it strange that the boards don't necessarily like /ck/, but they just don't want /co/ to be with her.

I'd support this.

I am in support of this Anon's proposal.
At least the proposal's for /e/ and /h/ that is.
The CORE of /d/'s character may very well be just that, but there has to be more there or she's kinda hard to use.

No need to apologize.
I'm more concerned about us spending time on characterization than maybe putting some art out there.
Art is the biggest attention grabber, and anytime somebody comes up with something new, it renews interest in the project.
I can't discourage the greatest single draw we have, when we still haven't reached anywhere near the level of activity we once had.

While presenting myself as the cancerous avatarfag I must be, someone posted this. Is there an established character design for /g/?

What there is is mostly a placeholder, it hasn't been discussed in any length/depth. Something about being thin, lanky, reclusive, arrogant, and reckless; but an excellent tech guy nonetheless:

There are only three sketches of /g/-tan:

File: 12654429502.jpg-(48.58KB, 267x400, cameron.jpg)
This must be hidden in /3/'s closet.

>>The CORE of /d/'s character may very well be just that, but there has to be more there or she's kinda hard to use.

That was the idea. But I think that is what she should be for the majority of the time. Pair that with /x/ and you get some decent horror stories. Add /co/rade and you get some film noir style pulp comics.

or pair /d/ with /lit/ and get some Lovecraft-esque crap going on

I like writing /d/ and /x/ together, and intend to do more of it shortly.
I've still got to get back to work on the "CoC Gaming Session" story I've started in on.
Too many distractions lately. That, and I haven't gotten into the routine of writing regularly again just yet.

so, about /b/: every time he appears he's not introduced or labeled in any way and always looks different and even acts differently (maybe he has some consistent element like weird eyes). If the rest of the cast is standardized, then /b/ always being "that other guy" would work well. Consistency in lack of consistency, except the character never takes anything seriously except in jest.

he should look the same physically but you could always have his "style" changing, different hair styles and clothes everytime or for a more artsy solution have him always being drawing in a style other than the other characters

like in a comic drawn in >>21331 style /b/ would be drawn in >>21201

Guys, you need to start working on the more obscure boards too. The plan here should be to get down all the characters, write stories and at the same time make tryout comics, then once all is agreed on proceed to making a manga/comic and maybe in 100 years we'll have an animated series.

/sci/ always wears a labcoat. He is male, 25-ish, brown hair. He is friends with /rs/ because she is a librarian and always helps him find his books. He is fairly young, friendly with everyone and helps /c/, /i/, /toy/ and /cm/ with their homework and as well other board-tans whenever they need some scientific information. At night his special power is to become an evil scientist. From his lab are often heard explosions, mad laughter and small creatures escape that usually end up in /an/'s caretaking (this would explain where she gets the weird animals) or in /ck/'s pot. Is usually very curious and takes samples of random stuff to "analyse later", such as /d/ weird secretions, and always tends to calculate the probability of stuff happening to a very exact number.
Job: R&D?

i'll throw my hat in on /sp/. I'm not gonna insist on him not being huge, but athletic/thick is good. He doesn't have to be a Rob Liefield character but he should probably have some differences over the other characters on the board. There are some references to /sp/ memes here, so no one will understand this. But still, here goes:

/sp/ was a star quarterback in the Internet Football League and was playing the game of his life in the championship game up till the point he needed to score a touchdown to win. All he needed was to get a first down. He looked, and saw someone open, but immediately yelled, "FUCK IT, I'M GOING DEEP!" and threw it downfield. It was intercepted, he lost the game, the team's perfect season was ruined (lol 18-1), and /sp/ became a laughingstock. No one wanted to sign him after what he pulled in the championship, so the down on his luck /sp/ hangs around 4chan House as a place to stay until he can get another shot.

He is a sort of friendly rival with /fit/ and for the most part can be cool with /trv/, since most athletes travel a lot. He gives /lit/, /sci/, /tg/, /toy/, /co/ and /a/ a lot of shit because of their subject matter, and mostly he and /mu/ are at each other's throats. /sp/ also hangs out with /o/ a lot (lol nascar/f1), but for the most part keeps to himself.

If all else fails you could probably make him look like Tim Tebow, or Brett Favre but as a placeholder, /sp/ looks like rax. Picture related, it's rax.

/sp/ SHOULD totally look like Brett Favre.

/sci/ doesn't do homework.
/sci/ hates doing homework for others.
/sci/ however will teach people how to do the work.

You're right. However, everyone bugs /sci/ about their homework, which greatly annoys him.

I think one of the main reasons that no one is focusing on the lesser know boards is because no one knows who has and hasn't been done yet. We really need to get an up to date comprehensive list going.

Up-to-date comprehensive list:

What about /5/?
This should be an interesting addition to the stories. Some sort of ghost, or something else?

File: 126577598831.png-(51.60KB, 670x1107, board dates.png)
Probably not a consistent character because if we start including past boards, we end up with three /n/'s, two /p/'s, two /x/'s, two /g/'s...and then the cast size becomes even less manageable then it is right now. It is actually quite ridiculous.

(the spreadsheet is not finished, I actually have dates for all the boards that exist now, not necessarily for ones like /ib/ and /ic.)

doesn't even list all the boards


Add them please, but try to refrain from adding empty sections. There are enough empty sections right now. I deliberately link to a wiki instead of having a "cast" page on 4chanhouse because most of the characters are not finalized.

Quality over quantity here, guys. Quality over quantity.

What about a Plus4Chan House thing?

So I had an idea for /n/. What if he isn't different people but rather a character like Kintaro from Golden Boy. When he is something like /n/-trains would be when he is in between jobs and traveling. And /new/ could be his old boss or an intern that when he was n-news but /new/ stuck with the job when /n/ left to pursue his next experience.

I'm not going to touch that one, but don't let that stop anyone else (maybe the +4c board-tans live in a clubhouse that has a spa and are generally the cool kids from down the street).

Could work. /new/ might get the axe from moot, though.

Well the boards here dont really have that much of a personality of their own since most the userbase is so small.

Anyway there's plus4hights for that stuff anyway.

/sci/ is also a bitter rival of /x/, as can be seen in their constant spamming. This should be reflected in the character.

I think /sp/ just moved in with /mu/ because of /a/. I didn't stop to read the thread, but that was the jist of the first post.

a drawfag here
inspired by a thread on /a/ i decided co contribute something to board tan family

i was planning on doing a comic about a schoollife, not family, of them(keeping all the characters that were made from you) thats why i keep searching and saving pictures all day now to find pictures of them

dude, don't do that.
I'm pretty certain that has most everything (except uptime).
Also, character bios:

yeah, i meant that, but it still takes time to download them all from that(especially because it saves all of them as "index.php.png" and therefore i have to rename everything by hand...)

So is /lit/ a chick or a guy? Seemed like there was steam behind the hot librarian deal but then there's that picture with /co/ and /ck/..?

Maybe a dude?
I actually was hoping he would be a chick, but a guy works.

I kind of envision /lit/ as an older male. Slightly older than /co/, who is late-20s, early-30s

Although /rs/ is already a fabulous bisexual male librarian, so maybe a hot-for-teacher librarian /lit/ might work

Incidentally, check /comic/

>>23137 >>23138 >>23158
I still think that /lit/ should be that girl you always see in the library in that same chair reading also she can be the little sister of /rs/, not slutty thou

/cgl/ is having a discussion. Their threads stay up for a while, so here is a link:

pic related, it's what /cgl/-tan is looking like.

I lol'd, Greatly!

I'm down with it


And they updated the description to match

Waitaminute... we have an entire board taking enough interest to not only draw a new -tan, but edit their own wiki entry?


A bunch of drawings were uploaded to the shimmie, in case you're missing out. There was a more "standard" design for /cgl/-tan, but I'm not really against this kind of character that has been created, because there's only so many "well, she's an ornery [hobby] nerd who looks like every other animu character in existence"

Besides, /cgl/-tan AKA Bagman come with at least one running gag: "how does he eat/drink/see if he always wears a paper bag?"

Other characters would just ignore the bag, saying something about how good /cgl/-tan's costume is. The interpretation of what this means is up the reader (cosplayers don't pay attention to how they don't look like the character? it doesn't matter? /cgl/-tan just looks like everyone?)

Just letting everyone know there is more images uploaded to the image board

Wait, wait. I think I've got it. A Compromise.

/lit/ is a female English major working at a book store because as everyone knows, you can't do shit with an English major. She spends her free time browsing through the books so she doesn't have to go home and realize her life is going no where. She has a novel she's been working on since she was 14 but kept getting scrapped and rewritten due to changes in her personality.

At her core she's the biggest elitist in the 4chan cast and as a result she often turns down any semblance of romantic advances. She keeps only the few friends that tolerate her bullshit, /x/, /tg/, and /co/. Though, /co/ and /lit/ often fight with each other whenever /lit/ brings up cape comics or when /co/ brings up Gamer Girl or Twilight.

whoever is drawing these is a good person and should feel good. I salute you, anonymous contributor!

I like that, except pretty much everyone in the cast is elitist. mature videogames and anime for mature people such as myself, all art is shit, cosplaying is serious business, your fashion sense is wrong, cocks only, etc etc. Well, as far as common themes go, it's pretty good.

And nobody in 4chan House likes Ayn Rand. not even /b/.

And there 2 /ck/?

I like it!

File: 126751417383.png-(197.63KB, 405x650, dfgdfgd.png)
Talked a friend into doing them. Convincing them to do more. D'ohohoho

There aren't 2 /ck/, just two different versions of her the artist found. They just drew two from the refs.


Actually, it might be interesting for /ck/ to have a "chibi /ck/" be like a familiar or something. Only /ck/ can see chibi-/ck/, and chibi-/ck/ offers /ck/ advice and whatever.

Not a bad idea

Here a crazy idea for like a small comic
Lets say /ck/ with the hat is the real /ck/ and the other one is like her sister or something
Have them cooking and perparing a dinner for everyone who leaves their rooms
They are acting friendly to each other but really they are cooking together to show off who is the better cook.
They bring out their food for everyone, the real /ck/ made something special for /co/ and as she was about to give it to him the other /ck/ gives /co/ something too just to tick the real /ck/ off a bit
Crap I don't know how to end this
Give me some time
still what you all think

The not-real /ck/ would actually be /d/

So Ratatouie?

Here is /r/ renewed. Combined a paper-boy like look and the other Ideas....

it is a bit generic and I still prefer the librarian angle

/rs/ (rapidshare) is more of the librarian type.
/r/ (research) is more researcher/explorer/factfinder type

Try to stay away from generic character designs. Give each one something unique (yes, it's rather difficult with the size of the cast). Most of the stuff that happens comes naturally with a cast full of eccentrics.

Give /r/ a pilot hat, large goggles, a bomber jacket, and a messenger bag he can pull anything out of.


/rs/ seems like the type to have stuff. A librarian at one extreme, a pack rat at the other. EVERYTHING must be recorded and cataloged as part of a record that he keeps.

/r/ seems to have been defined okay, but I still think he needs to be a little more needy or absent-minded considering the amount of /r/ threads that go unfulfilled or forgotten.

Oh, and /hc/ probably ended up dead in a ditch like a cheap prostitute or something just in case there needed to be anymore depth to her. /s/ would probably be her estranged older sister. /s/ poses for the camera but isn't such a slut about it.

>/r/ as a sky-ship messenger boy

Uhh, also, he always seems to be "up in the clouds."

Sometimes he'll show up with something someone asked for a month ago, and sometimes he'll pull it right out of his bag the moment it gets asked for...leading to situations where he sometimes brings something nobody can remember asking for, but it turns out important/useful/a MacGuffin/just useless

I have a surprise I'm working on for everyone, but I was wondering: what color should /a/'s skirt be?

>what color should /a/'s skirt be?

She could utter incantations and stuff in Church Slavic, an archaic form of Bulgarian and essentially the equivalent of Latin in the Slavic world. Of course, that might be take the idea too far....

File: 126889057526.png-(19.09KB, 1006x544, Glagolitic_alphabet.png)
I'm actually Russian and know Old Church Slavonic.

Of course, it's currently used only for liturgical reasons (like Church/Ecclesiastical Latin) and is written in Early Cyrillic, which looks far more like regular Cyrillic than Glagolitic, which looks like something between Viking runes and Greek.

So, yeah, I would be up for writing stuff in Glagolitic if someone needs me to do it.

File: 126889796857.png-(63.73KB, 231x251, mux5.png)
I just thought that Glagolitic would be more arcane and therefore fitting for use as a consistent written medium in /x/-tan's invocations.

Sounds like a plan. I'm sure there are Glagolitic typefaces you can download.

Thank you.
Which site? 4chanhouse?
Like it.

I just found the one appearance of R so far. Nothing but two lines where he is looking for sauce for his pasta.... Yeah... head in the clouds....
Might write a bit...

Daily Rounds. /R/'s day.

- Midnight, /T/'s Air? Ship, /R/'s Room -

*The Captain of the ship, /T/, wails his fist down on the door.

/T/: /R/! GET UP!

*Inside /R/ sat at his desk, writing in his Planner. Standing up to get the door, He writes a note to himself on his chalk board.

/R/: What is it /T/ ?

*/R/ opens the door only to get a face full of parrot. "MOAR!!!!"

/T/: Where is that Package I requested!?

* /R/ sighed and turned around to his hook stand and reached into the messenger bag there. The he pulled from it a package that was too big to fit in the bag. Checks it and passes it to /T/

/R/: Good?

*/T/ opens it and looks inside. A golden glow shown back at him

/T/: Very. Now go. I know you have to get to delivering....

* To that statement the Parrot squawked in a way that sounded like a laugh.
/R/ Nodded and got dressed. Then with brutal efficiency he got on his transport.
/R/ Wasted no time. He had Three different Deliveries to make.
First was Old man /O/ at his garage.

/R/: /O/??

* /R/ looked in, saw nothing, and went in. as he did he pulled out a tablet Pc of sorts.

/O/: Down here. Hand me the tablet. I assumme that is why you are here.

* /O/ was beneath one of the cars.

/R/: Here. where do you want it placed?

* /O/ Takes the tablet, Looks at the contents and Makes a postive noise.

/O/: Moment... Let me show you.

* /O/ handed back the tablet and led /R/ Round back.
* /R/ opened the hinges of his bag and began to pull out what appeared to be a Lamborghini Diablo variant, possiblely a Coatl.

/R/: Is it what you wanted?

*/O/ stood there in shocked Silence.

/O/: I hate you kid. But the Request is to the perfection point. Good work... How did
you find one?

/R/: Lets say I know a good man In South America who Likes his Lamborghinis but was running out of room...

* And With that /R/ was off. OFF to /i/ and /ic/ 's

Hmm... Meh.... It was a try.

Hope that was good...
I hate being striped of creativity....

/y/ and /u/ rivalry sounds fun too.

Board colors? Hmm.
All I can say is that I would like to see some more sketches of the other boards. (/r/ /i/ /ic/ etc)

I have all the images (and most of everything else) backed up. I was going to make an archive of it and put it up, but then I got lazy, because nothing is organized. I suppose it wouldn't take much to run some sort of image-duplicate-search and throw everything into one folder.

It's kind of hard finding shared hosts that are willing to host smut, so if anyone has recommendations, I want them. Maybe I should be running a dedicated server, but there's <800 unique visitors a month, and <3gb of data transfer.

Sure, if that's what you want to add and nobody wants to contest you.

Yea, friend of mine did a uniform design if interested. /a/ would wear optional pants and skirt.

/i/ and /ic/ are pretty cool, but Need more sexy females drawn. Maybe some hentai doujin. /e/ x /u/, /c/ x /a/, /i/ x /ic/...that last one would be awesomely hilarious.

Doing that way.... Older characters could be teachers...

/i/x/ic/ is illegal.... That is CP.... Yeah... unless we reclass the character...
/i/ is a child....
/ic/ is 30ish

The idea for /c/'s and /i/'s characters are that both are perpetually innocent, except /c/ is oblivious/lucky, and /i/ isn't. Of course, that hasn't stopped people from drawing /i/ lewdness (or shota /x/, for that matter).

/ic/ x /i/ should stay as /unwilling mentor/ x /persistent student/ pair.


I just was pondering thoughts of group shots.
It would be nice to have one of the "main" crew (tgxavcckcodvrporsbcgl)

File: 126917498732.jpg-(875.97KB, 1151x780, 1268554453051.jpg)
unfortunately, who is in the "main" crew is a highly subjective thing. /m/ and /k/ get less love than /tg/. /k/ x /an/ is totally underrated.

Also, I just wanted to post this image.

File: 12691751833.jpg-(204.00KB, 590x601, 1268558357956.jpg)
Yeah, I know we had the discussion about "who gets more attention in the storyline" but there is no storyline, so it comes down to artist's discretion.

And then there's female /m/, for good measure (someone was taking requests in /co/ a couple days ago)

I meant "main" as in those we have nailed down for designs. If I was to rephrase the sentence I would say:
I wish there a height reference line up of the Board-tans we have mostly set in design.

Welll any reference type images would be nice

Wish I was that good of an artist....

I'm not saying it should be canon pairings, I just think it'd be a fun thing to do. When I think of these characters, I think of em like all the other tans. Everyone draws them in every which way and draws hentai of them with every character. It's just for fun guys, never forget that.

It might.... esh...

Ok, sooooo...

Current host is down, probably for good.

What does the future hold for

Well, I have all the images saved locally (and some of them were never actually uploaded to the Shimmie), so that's all good. The comments on the images will be lost unless I can get a database backup, which is possible but unlikely. There wasn't anything too important there.

Discussions will probably be retrieved to a certain point, but most of it was just me talking to myself (and some other people posted too, I guess).

I might get this done by tomorrow or something.

Something wonky is going on with /coc/

Anyway, I went through all the images I had, ran a duplicate-detection program over them, and uploaded them with no particular organization.

There's things in there that were never posted on the shimmie because I was too lazy.

Also, gief suggestions for theme colors or other things you want to see on the site


Could you reupload the rar, it's not working for me.

As for theme colors how about just the normal 4chan blue and red. Maybe some green here and there.

>Could you reupload the rar, it's not working for me
Nevermind, it's working now

Holy jeez, the site is back up.

I'm still moving hosting, lol.

I'm totally OK with the /m/ x /toy/ thing people are putting on the wiki, by the way, as long as the "lolicon" thing is played down and the "oblivious to the advances of the various female characters" is played up.

It works. My only comment...

And that was in ref to both the site and the idea.....

No, I am kind of busy with not failing everything and also there has been a bit of discussion about /w/ and /wg/ over at the /char/ board:

To be honest, if this project is going to grow it shouldn't be based on this thread here... but due to shit hosting and my poor webdesign skills I tend to link here or to the shimmie instead of to the main page.

If I give up or am going to leave, I'll post about it and probably make public all backups or whatever.

Where did that set of /fa/ and /cgl/ images come from?

I refuse to accept any /cgl/-tan that isn't Bagman.

File: 127074088139.jpg-(65.21KB, 400x600, zbv.jpg)
i second this.

But /fa/-tan? what do think of his design? still in line with the 'canon'?

/cgl/ (which I actually lurk). probably posted by author, maybe not. You'll notice they are all signed '==='

that /fa/-tan looks pretty in-line with what has been established so far, but he's just drawn differently. The >implied relationship between /cgl/ and /fa/ probably wouldn't work out romantically either.
/cgl/ was still partial to Bagman

Works for me.

been posting pics from shimmie to relevant boards last night:

fit: unexpectedly mild positive response. was expecting some outrage at being the bottom to /fa/.
a few suggestions that he should be a fat guy trying to be fit.

fa: a positive response. i guess they like looking at themselves. and not surprisingly want more.

a: seem familiar with their tan, and comics of. no comments or suggestions made.

c: a curious anon said "thank you, c. now i will never be happy until there is a 4chan anime" . interesting.

k: mild response.
a few prodded at the idea of being ridiculously over-bearing with weapons, especially the strange ideas of weapons - eg. bear calvary, Rocket Propelled Chainsaw. they seemed to like the idea of ironic humor, not unlike one liners from spaghetti westerns.

po: the dead board it is, asked if there was any paper craft of /po/tan . lol .

jp: perhaps it was how i worded it, but it was a negative response. did not like their tan, and seemed not to want one. there was one suggestion that the tan be some unknown creature that never leaves his room and just wants to be left alone.

cm: no response. 'spose the few tan pictures i weren't homolust enough for them. there aren't many /cm/tan appearances after all.

w: slight positive response. i imagine /w/ being a weeaboo computer arts designer. /wg/ not liking anime. but eh, ideas.

not sure if that helped, but.. that's my report.

Wow never thought of that.... hmnm might have something to write about with that.
Well Originally the Symbol on his bandana was a stylized beetle.
But I like this version too.

I don't know about the lines, it could probably be made more "meaningful"

It represents constant vigilance... /r/ is a member of some secret delivery-boy society.

well most of those mean that the character designs are on the right track (I like the bit about /fit/)

/k/ probably needs more personality work, but his appearance seems pretty acceptable.

/jp/ is just full of the hate, and I don't ever see /po/ being a major character. I liked the suggestion that "nobody except /x/ (and /b/ sometimes) seems to know she exists"

File: 127172430886.jpg-(136.75KB, 582x495, adv.jpg)
the picture gives me an idea. whoever drew that and this, /adv/ being a dog.... why not animals as tans?
that and the porn boards being slightly retarded and not so character-based as they are for comedy relief.

/i/ seems to like deleting my non-oekaki posts. would've been ideal if they joined the band wagon. /ic/ seems to have no need to make more

Ok, so I wrote up a draft for /y/-tan, because /y/ had some good discussion about him. Check it out, and once that thread 404's I'll edit the wiki accordingly.

There were some images that were not on the shimmie, but are on there now.

/r/'s beetle/eye symbol reminded of of the psychic symbol from the pokemon TCG. Maybe the delivery boy society has a series of secret rules and deep connections. Even though /r/-the-board doesn't always deliver, having /r/-tan "(almost) always deliver" seems like a good encapsulation of the whole concept of "ask-deliver-fill" that we've all experienced. I don't really see much else for /r/-tan as a character, but the delivery aspect would make him more appropriate for including in storylines.

/rs/ is probably involved with it somehow, and /t/ might have been high-ranking during his time as an AIR-PIRATE. (Now that I think about it, those three characters would be good to use in case something about totally legal file sharing comes up.)

oooh! I am inspired!
I see what you are saying. So Not a Class-1 character (Main story/hero/villian type) but a class-2 (Sidecharacter with story/important role/Interesting but nonintersecting story)


Yeah, it's like that. Although /r/-tan has enough substance for at least some stuff to be written about him.

y halo thar

True. I did write a bit on him. Need to finish it. 1 0f 2 parts done....

Oh and hi >>25002

Well for those who have not read The first part of /r/'s adventure....
in the bottom of

Just thinking that i nay need a better description of where /i/ & /ic/ live for part 2

Ah, the /i/ and /ic/ living together with some "mom" is an old idea, back when they were Mad/i/son and D/ic/k. They used to be brother and sister, but we've since moved away from actual familial relationships to more interesting things. None of the board-tans are directly related, although they could have been "childhood friends" or they could have awesome relatives (who are not part of 4chan Hosue). The reason for it is that this just adds another level of clusterfuck and potential disagreement. You can try to convince me otherwise, though, if you want (or just ignore me completely).

Individual room designs have not actually been addressed, but each of them probably lives in their own room, unless there's a good reason for it (notably /c/ and /toy/ share a room). /ic/ probably has a bunch of art stuff and half-finished canvases and whatevers, and /i/'s room looks like a messy girl's room, with scribbles and other assorted items strewn about. (Girls' rooms can be more messy than boys' rooms, true story.)

There's a description of the house here: and I guess I should add an image to it or something, huh.


Ah. Forgot that.... -Hits himself up side the head-

And I can concur with a girl's room can be worse then a guy's.... I have seen it....

so, I put /y/'s character bio on the wiki, but I didn't think too much about his job. "superstar at the gay bar"... is there a gay bar now? maybe he just runs some sort of gay escort service.

He can claim it. No one would challenge him.... /r/ maybe for the fact he was given a nonexistant address.

NonpERFORMING fools! Don't you see? This is heresy! Now goad and go die!


/tv/ should be a bisexual virgin perv. Just sayin'.


>>2 5417 that sounds interesting. Pleas go one

Just a thought But we might need to repromote this page and the house else where.,...

Well there been a lot of /u/ threads going on at /co/ lately
We need a drawing of them hanging out

Ask then.

File: 127389645210.png-(34.38KB, 875x573, sci1.png)
Alright, how about we tackle /sci/, just for kicks and giggles:

Gender/Physical Description: Male, mid-20s. Thin and somewhat tall, but doesn't look off. Has a longish neck, and shoulder-length hair (color?), leading to a bishie look. Hair parts down the middle, but a strand tends to hang down, just enough to cover the top of one of his eyes. /sci/ wears jeans and a labcoat with a ringer shirt underneath, and carries pens in his labcoat.

Personality/Habits/Hobbies/Behavior: Has a deep desire to be right constantly, which leads to long arguments. Verbose and contrarian. Knows math well, but constantly tries to disprove things. Obsessed with Carl Sagan. Likes to argue about religion.

Relationships: Something with /x/?

Job: Graduate student in university.

Love it.
With him we have a love triangle.
/tg/ likes /x/ but as a close friend with benefits. He loves her deep down really
/x/ Loves /tg/ deeply but is close friend to /sci/
/sci/ is just doesn't know when to stop. believes that science and nature made them to be prefect for each other.

File: 127424850616.jpg-(164.65KB, 1021x533, 1274141979490.jpg)
So I was going to click on /v/ but I missed and clicked /u/ and then I saw this thread:

i swear i didn't make it

Who cares. It works..

File: 127430573624.png-(1.45MB, 1404x992, b-personification.png)
So, I was scanning some stuff from my sketchbook and found some doodles I did of /b/ back when everyone was debating what he'd be like.

Figured I'd throw it up here.

(Also, there's some other guy, ignore him)

Nice work, The other guy reminds me of one image... actually It looks like the current image attached to /b/-tan's decription on the 1d4chan wiki page

Kill it with fire!


haven't seen some of the pics there in the gallery.

Thanks for the heads up.

Most of it seemed to be namefag circlejerking, but there were a couple things I didn't have.

I'll do a better character write-up for /fa/ once I'm done failing my finals.

Seems so

I think /cgl/ is a pretty cool guy.

Eh cosplays and doesn't afraid of anything.

File: 127612118922.jpg-(254.39KB, 800x800, 1276102925624.jpg)
I suppose I should also point out that I've moved hosts.

Still using less than 1% of data transfer that I pay for.

jus me or are there new x-tan pics

/x/ will often ask for /sci/'s help, such as analyzing things, or the occasional gadget.
/sci/ will often talk down to /x/ calling paranormal things hallucinations, lies, fairy tales, etc. Occasionally, he'll see something he can't explain, and will come up with an excuse instead of listening to /x/.
/x/ will often give him the line about magic=science, which he just brushes off.

I wrote up a post but it went away ;_;

I'll be moving to a house with no Internet on Saturday (I don't know when I will get Internet, and the moving thing has kept me busy), so I made a guy named skoobadoop a mod so he can make sure someone doesn't flood all the boards with unrelated penises when I can't be online. In retrospect, I probably should have asked for mod volunteers here, but skoob is a pretty cool guy.

Uploaded a bunch of stuff to the shimmie, and there are a couple people posing on the boards. hopefully more people will post!


I hear ya.

Just Pulled from my archives this one of R
Little older version of the bomber jacket style




Don't die~! I need art!

because I am dumb, I had to go back to a backup. Unfortunately, the week after the backup was made was when there actually was some discussion


Not dead yet.

Atleast you did not lose everything.

new board.

Hey guys, someone drew a new comic (for /y/, specifically)

File: 12800625333.png-(550.66KB, 1500x375, boardtans.png)

Did you do that?
If you did Would you complete the set of Board-tans?

FUCKING. SWEET. I'm really digging the Scott Pilgrim style on the board-tans.

I want to take /i/, /cm/, and /c/ home and feed them tons of sweets and give /i/ lots of paper to draw on. Does this make me even remotely pedo?

Here is another piece for /r/.
Took a bit but....

File: 128023326242.png-(792.97KB, 450x600, vp.png)
I may do sketches for some of the remaining boards next time I have some free time. Thankfully I'm not actually missing that many.

Also, here's a sketch idea for /vp/ (and /tr/) that came about from a discussion on /co/ last night. Basically the lovechildren of /v/ and /a/ (SOMEHOW).

File: 128025686011.jpg-(31.04KB, 300x280, herbert west does not take kindly to your bullshit.jpg)
They were made the same way babies of crack lesbian ships are made.



I like it
Funny that you put the pair in Pokemon Cosplay like clothes.


just a note.... TR?

Scratch that...
went to vp and it is also TR....

/m/ has requested an alternate look for /m/-tan's "Real Robot" mode...

Unfortunately, I have no idea what that entails.

I am, however, enjoying the "Hot-Blooded" version.

File: 128030685461.gif-(14.90KB, 241x720, broncosuit.gif)
The perfect /m/-tan would be a character in a bright flashy flight suit wearing a helmet that completely obscures their face and gender.
A running gag being that the character's gender is never outright stated, and somehow eats, drinks, brushes their teeth seemingly with the helmet on.

Passing /x/phile here. This is a great project, and I wish the best of luck to you all (I wish I was creative enough to contribute).
Are there any plans to draw something similar to the original 4chan House with all the -tans? It'd be a good collaborative project.

Relative of /i/ and /ic/.
Generally pretty quiet but always ask for proof of ownership on any work. As paranoid as he can be he'll help out people with questions if they ask nicely.

Just thought to get it out of the way. Based on my personal experience with the board.

/3/ being related to I ic .... but those two are not related by genetics atm

In that case just /ic/ as I have already decided on his hair color and there is simply no going back from that.

Sound interesting.

What if.....
/3/ is the Little brother of /ic/ but /ic/ hates his guts for some reason.
Maybe /ic/'s "Fatherly instincts" towards /i/ from things that might be too too traumatic?
Just a passing thought


Debate thecfraki



>>29897 >>29897 Sounds cool but what could back that.up?

Meh. Summer kills good things like this thread. Anyway so x and tg are together.... what about sci and po? Or maybe lit


Apparently in the aftermath of /co/ and /ck/'s breakup, /co/ decided to steal /x/ away from /tg/. /tg/ would have none of it, and the two faced off in an epic brodown, stalemating.

/x/ showed up, told both of them off, and decided to run off with /k/.

Something here demands drawing.

File: 128202288013.png-(168.27KB, 700x700, 1282013699092.png)
I don't want no drama. No no no no drama...

Yeah, I saw those threads, but it was probably some troll. I think the way it works is if you want something to be included is you write about it, or draw somethi- oh wait...

Maybe it was /d/ after all, or maybe /b/ was stirring up trouble. I'm not in a rush to change the relationship descriptions.

Wouldn't that mean /x/ is cheating on /tg/?

It would seem. But it might be the product of someone who doesn't know all the characters all that well.

or a clever ruse!

I hate Clever Ruses!
I think I shall work on some art for /f/argo This week...

I was expecting /f/ to have an afro probably because racial stereotypes, but ok. Chain is cool though, that's gotta stay, and it should also say /f/ on it (again with the racial stereotypes).

I should also point out: who are clearly more creative and dedicated than me (thanks, /co/!)

A quick sketch of /g/

File: 128229285562.jpg-(343.61KB, 600x800, reCaptchatan0.jpg)
Now relevant, ReCAPTCHA-tan. Maybe one of /rs/'s buddies or something.

There's also an Ae-tan for Encyclopedia Dramatica, but probably not as relevant.

>>30359 >>30318
Well I went from the description on the wiki. it just said messy unkempt hair.
the large circle on the center of the chain was a dial with an f on,it.
recapcha tan sounds great

Possibly /x/ has split personalities due to /b/ constantly abusing her? Part of her loves /tg/, and the other personality... well... it has been acting a lot like /b/ lately.

idk, I just feel that it would make sense given the board dynamics.


I always assume the /b/ invasions would just make /x/ just recoil and go into hiding.

I'm not dead... I'm just really real- *fits of hacking coughs* Oh lawd *Gak* *cough* argh... sick.

never said you were

There's enough room for /x/ to be 'possessed' or something, so, yeah!

Hmm Nice idea

it seems not to be so...

re: 1d4chan:
>So yeah, the server has been misbehaving for a few days. Also I have limited internet access. These two problems are unrelated but their tag-team action makes it difficult for me to fix the site within a reasonable timescale, and the server failure is likely to recur until I work out what's causing it and how to fix it (which is again difficult thanks to the limited internet access) and so more unplanned outages should be expected in the coming days. Hopefully this won't cause anyone significant problems.
>Wikifag 12:31, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

there's a couple new images on the shimmie if you haven't seen them yet. As far as website-related stuff goes, I've only used 3% of the data transfer I get per month.

In completely unrelated news, I am at PAX this weekend!

Make sure to Look out for Chan cosplayers anyway.

> I've only used 3% of the data transfer I get per month

It has been a while since there was real attention for the boardtans. Not much you can do unless you want to take the stick to the beehive and attempt to start something on /a/, /co/, /tg/ or whatever.

Cosplay? At PAX? People do that?

Oh shit, I'm supposed to be lurking.

Anything is possible.
Pax is a convention and people are bound to even if it is not really that kind of things.
Fans are crazy like that.

I'm not really one for bringing attention to things... if there's a board-tan thread going on that I see I'll probably post in it (as Anonymous), but /b/ is probably the only board I would make board-tan threads in. Most of it is because it's super-meta and not-board-related stuff tends to ruin boards.

There were some cosplays at PAX, but it was vidya cosplays. Although there were quite a few 4channers there in the first place.
