It’s time for another r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-i-i-i-p-roarin’ episode of Rag-NERD-rok’s World Wide Wrestling RPG promotion, the WAWF! The backstage mood is tense after anti-hero Jesse Evans’ unscripted intervention put the championship belt in the hands of Christian Faith, and Faith is nowhere to be found. Mike Nightstorm, the Last Hellion, and promotion boss Vince Nickleback have booked Evans in a match with jobber The Mimicker, who is hoping to salvage what little dignity he can in front of his friends and family. Meanwhile, the giant G3 is eager to prove that he’s no pushover after the ignominious defeat he suffered during the Regal Wrangle. Who will emerge victorious, and who will taste the canvas? Find out, this week on Rag-NERD-rok!

    Between the Maine setting, RNR’s previous “Diegesis” APs, and a vague feeling in the back of my head, I came out of this episode with the strong suspicion that Christian Faith has wandered into the plot of a Stephen King novel (or into the Maine-located ‘pit of the shoggoths’ from Lovecraft’s “The Thing on the Doorstep”), and that your next WAWF episode will involve a bunch of spandex-clad wrestlers doing battle against the forces of darkness up in Fryeburg.

    (I was rather *personally* amused at the “Fuck Fryeburg!” comment, as I actually spent a summer working on a potato farm along the Saco River in Fryeburg, Maine. I remember one of my coworkers there, an elderly gentleman, who had a Maine accent so thick that I had to have his speech translated for me.)

    I also really love the classical references that G3 makes, and look forward to him continuing to bewilder audiences with them. Maybe he can try to start up a music career, and drop a single that begins “Yo, yo, check it: I rap of arms and the man…”

    They wanted it all, but they can’t have it…

    Another fun episode. Jamez’ character Mimicer was slightly different than Rouge, I think? The hometown hero angle was a cool part of the episode, even if the Mimicer got his ass beat. 🙂

    Ryan, I don’t feel like you need to know that much about wrestling moves to play G3. Usually those giant wrestlers just use their sheer power and mass, and do things like take a hit without flinching- or pick a guy up, or put up a big hand/foot when someone comes flying at them anyway?
