Ghost Stories from Teufort
A collection of the spooky tales and chilling images circulating the bases, passed from mercenary to mercenary.

What is this and why should I care?
This is a community collaboration effort to celebrate all things spooky in time for the Halloween update! Fic, art and SFM posters will be bundled together like the contents of an investigation file, collecting strange tales and images circulating the bases.

The theme can be interpreted as “ghost stories and other oddities, as collected by the mercs.” Anything goes - as long as it is sufficiently supernatural, creepy, or otherwise in the spirit of things!

You should care because it's fun.


A bit about this project and how it will work:
•Fic, art, and SFM works are all accepted!
•You may submit up to two works of any kind.
•All work will be compiled into a PDF, designed to look like an investigation file/collection of images and stories from the bases.

I can understand initially, but one was going on about the floating dicks for a good five minutes. Encouraged everyone else to go look at them, though. Which is an odd form of friendship.

Hey guys! Me and some of my bros like Exi and Terato Marty and a bunch of other people whipped up a custom set of TF2-themed Cards Against Humanity cards if anybody is interested. Mix them in with your own sets for hours of horrible, horrible fun, why don't you?

You should be able to download them and print them out from here:

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B8Tt2NhtQP-HOC1pbHloc2c2dWc&usp=sharing

If anybody has any trouble accessing the folder let me know so I can upload them elsewhere.

I wonder if maybe I could get them onto Pretend You're Xxzyy, if I should just email the guy who runs it and see if he's interested? IDK.

Merry early Smissmas.

This update was just what I needed to get through everything lately. Dose corpse carts. Dose voice lines. Medic screaming oh my god.

I do agree that Pyro's lines were quite... odd. Not enough muffle.

Not yet seen the new Demo/Solly high five in action, but the prospect of unique class combo high-fives makes me so giddy in the pants.

Playing the game last night was... an experience. I came to the update about 12 hours late, due to working on GhostFort all day and dealing with familial drama, so everyone already knew how spells worked and proceeded to hand my arse to me. Had primed myself up by listening to the voice lines and having my friends fangasm at me over Steam. By the time I arrive, I find myself met with jaded whines of "I'm soooo over Halloween, this update is boring" and "TF2 is dying, what should we play instead?" from my friends over Skype. That's not a comment on the game's update itself - for what it's worth, I enjoyed it a lot! - but I felt like the magic was ruined for me a little this year. Also Scoots. Scoots everywhere. Killing you and not letting you get all the presents...

OH WELL. Fuck the haters, I still love stupid Halloween events.

  Scrapped Valve animation? Most likely legit, since it came out only a day after the update and uses the new voice lines (also dat mocap [albeit rough] and facial flexes on Mer)

I'm tempted to say Can't Sleep made this themselves. If it was a Valve creation, they would have mentioned that it was made by Valve, and where they found it in the SFM files.

So I got my Pyro figure delivered today.

Sculpt is very good - my only complaint is I cannot seem to make the figure STAND for any length of time. I have actually broken his flamethrower the last time he fell. (It's a clean break so its mendable.)

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone had found any sort of solution or work around so that the figure can stand without damaging itself.

I've got both my NECA Demoman as well as my NECA Pyro in the mail yesterday.
Balance issues are no surprise, considering the TF2 design. Top-heavy, somewhat bulky characters, only supported by thin legs and small feet.
I do not say this to take away responsibility from the toy manufacturer. However, I'm just saying that any company producing TF2 figures would probably run into this problem. I personally prefer my figure's sculpt to be accurate instead of them being altered just to make them stand easier. Talking about stand: A toy-stand might help! I bet you can find some of these on googles.
I personally however didn't have much problems balacing my toys. My demo did take some time before he was able to stand, but then again he is the drunk one, right?
Even small differences in temperature can soften the plastic enough to alter the behaviour of joints. If this happens, especially on joints that support the figure's weight, the figure might fall over more easily.
My room happens to be very cold. Maybe that's why I don't have a hard time positioning my figures.

Hijacking this thread as the "Figure Discussion thread" 'cause I feel like an attention seeker making new threads all the time

See those tin can babies in the image attached? They're going up for pre-pre-order on threeA's webshop at 9:00AM Hong Kong time today on the 27th (at the time of writing this, it's about 7:25AM Hong Kong time on the 27th)
threeA's webshop: http://www.bambalandstore.com/

Apparently they'll go up for retail sale later but without the exclusive bundle. I, for one, can afford neither.

Also keeping a hawk eye out for NECA's Spy and Engineer preorders which should be happening soon. I'll make a post when I see them go up for preorder on the international shipping sites

Man, whenever there is an update/fix, I feel like such a noob, because everyone else is either complaining/happy about stuff it fixes, and I didn't even notice that stuff to begin with.
>> No. 14013
I still haven't played either of the new maps, wewps

Overall, I love a lot of the fixes! Though they will take some getting used to, like the Powerjack changes. And as an engineer main, I'm thrilled the nerfs/fixes/whathaveyou are viable and haven't made me ragequit my favourite gameplay style, despite the SPUF screams for removing the gunslinger entirely.

Though I do feel a little bad for spies. I don't deny DRs were often OP in even the worst spy's hands, or that they were blatantly overused, but something about the changes isn't quite right either.

Oh, and the Escape Plan... RIP good buddy. If separating its crits out into a new weapon wasn't bad enough, it's now more or less useless with the marked-for-death nerf.

Sadly no fix for crashes to desktop, server dropouts (not the occasional server error - I'm talking server disconnects after being in for 30 seconds or so, on every one you join), nor stopping the demoknight turn script. Maybe in another 4 years?

Oh god yes. Let me refer you to the thread I found that let me use the tools. TL;DR Valve is ditching the unified SSDK app/launcher in favor of shipping the tools separately for each game, and you wanna load the tools in question out of the TF2 folder.

Thread here (skipped to post by Valve employee): http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?p=34381610#post34381610

Now, I did what they said and still have some issues, but I can at least open the darn things. Hopefully they'll have a proper fix in the future.

While on the discussion on maps, I would really love to see more maps that work like cp_steel. I really love that map.

You know, the final point is open at all times, but red spawn being next to it makes it tough to cap unless reds are dumb. Capturing other points make the final cap easier bit by bit.

It's a great map, but there have been few attempts by the community to try anything similar (or at least none that have achieved a similar level of popularity), and Valve are always reluctant to release anything that can't be immediately grasped by newer players.

The Lecture Valley thing seemed to hint at more Medieval stuff and I'd be down with that, but I really hope they don't do any more Special Delivery. Doomsday seriously bites.

My original (i.e. pre Mann vs. Machine update) speculation went like this:
The Administrator totally doesn't trust anyone other than herself to run things. She invests in, say, Aperture, and uploads herself as an all-seeing AI, automating most of RED and BLU's day-to-day processes. The mercs are fooled into it's still 1968 ish and, accordingly, they'll keep playing death tag effectively forever.

I'm kinda undecided about how big a change the MvM update really brought. Sure, Redmond and Blutarch are dead, but in the game itself there are still teams of 12, 18, 24, or 32 fighting over RED/BLU contested territory...or are those game modes not connected to the "plot" of TF2 any more?

In general, I tend to treat canon I don't like with the handwave of "well, that might have happened to THE [Insert Class Here], but not to MY [Insert Class Here]", but maybe it's time to make up new headcanons again.

Ain't gonna lie, I laughed.

As for my headcanon.. it depends on what I'm dealing with:

If it's my own writing (where I justify multiples of the same class/character as clones), I imagine they are brought into existence to fulfil a role, and once that role is no longer needed to be filled post-MvM... well, it can go either way.

If it's a light hearted take, they get situated as far apart from each other as possible in the real world, told not to take any high-profile jobs lest a civilian recognise them and to live out the rest of their years in peace. Given they're mercs, there are a lot of issues adjusting and so they vent their frustrations in various ways. Like the odd demo giving up on a regular job and travelling the world to study (read: hunt) mysterious creatures, or another who bands with a pyro to enter the pyrotechnics business with sparkling assassinations inexplicable fatal firework accident on the side.

If it's a dark take, they are set to be destroyed behind closed doors. Some of them might escape. Getting really horrible, there are times I imagine it like that lovely film, Moon - where their bodies break down after x amount of years and they're replaced with a fresh clone.

When I think about the game, and how Valve could possibly end the story without breaking the eternal war aspect, I imagine them winning the robot (hat?) war and disbanding... yet failing miserably to integrate into society so they come back for a reunion and decide to duel it out like in the good old days, for the rest of their lives. Like what Tidbits said.
>> No. 13970
In my headcanon, all of them except engineer and pyro die before it all ends and pyro loses his/her body when seven of them are dead.
In 1999, pyro dies of exhaustion right before the end comes.
The only survivor after it's all over is engineer.
>> No. 13973
Very late to the headcanon party here, but I'm noticing no one is bringing up the respawn mystery. There's clearly something significant keeping the mercs alive, something that was hinted to be connected to Redmond and Blutarch's immortality machines. The latter are obviously dead, but are the mercs are still relentlessly respawning with impunity?

My headcanon depends on that question, because in mine, they are immortal. They're still subject to the attrition of time, but constantly respawning has affected their very bodies and (presumably medic) has taken advantage of this by further altering their bodies to make them all live longer (obviously because he wanted to see what would happen).

Would they retire? Hell no. They might have to do it somewhere else if the robot invasion is ever resolved, but I don't see one single merc even considering putting down their guns. They'll keep shooting and slaughtering until they'll need walking sticks and wheelchairs, and even then they'll strap rockets to those and race multicoloured forest animals as demonstrated here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNfBUXYuuP8

Our beloved maniacs will never stop fighting, if they've destroyed everything, then they'll just ride off into the sunset, blow the sunset up, and find a different battlefield.

Skullgirls is actually pretty cool. It's a fighting game made all by fans, hand-drawn and animated in 2D (think Guilty Gear, if you're familiar with it), with a mostly female cast of monsters and macabre creatures. (The token dude is a big buff black guy who's a cyborg Jazz musician.) They were also generous enough to give Fighting Is Magic their fighting game engine for free when they ran into legal trouble.

I do think it's a bit clashy with the TF2 style, but I'm okay with them re-submitting them to make them official.
