Go To

Ten Thousand Rads is an extremely small Play-by-Post Roleplay site, run primarily by a small but dedicated group of members who mostly know each other in real life.

The site is incredibly informal and contains a small number of amusing roleplays, most of which are based off of pre-existing franchises.


TTR roleplays contains examples of:

    open/close all folders 

    The site in general 
  • Game Master: Obviously, it's a roleplaying website.
  • Improv: The entire site is one giant Improv Game.
  • Killed Off for Real: Quite frequent due to members leaving an RP halfway through.
  • Magic Ampersand: All three T&T roleplays (Started as Theology & Thaumaturgy, changed to Trolls & Trinkets during the second one) and all four Colonize & Conquers.
  • Make Room for the New Plot: If someone running a particular plot disappears, things tend to get resolved rather quickly.
  • Posthumous Collaboration: Can happen if a well-liked RP loses its GM and others elect to take over.
  • Running Gag: Several; the Pokémon roleplays have people getting plungers stuck to their face and The Changed World is obsessed with bears.

    Assault on Sandbox 
  • Made of Plasticine: RED Fem!Scout managed to smash RED Sniper's head in with a Ghastly Gibus. Somehow.

    The Basics 
  • Crossover: With Frozen, though the Game Master is working hard to keep it from overpowering the setting.
  • Historical Fantasy: It was stressed that magic could become useful. It was largely ignored until a village in southern Norway was incinerated, apparently by magic.
  • Posthumous Collaboration: Scotsman took the RP over after Gaara left the site.

    The Changed World 
  • No Indoor Voice: Spidey's dialogue and actions are typed out in CAPS LOCK.
  • Paper Tiger: The Hulk, as the Thunderbolts manage to take him down in less than a page.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: Helsie accidentally wrote that Wolverine was carrying a bear when he meant beer. Hilariously, none of the others even batted an eye, seeing it as perfectly in character for Logan to walk into class with a bear over his shoulder.
  • Super Registration Act: The SHARA (the Superhuman Administration and Regulation Act), which is based off of the SHRA of Civil War infamy.

    Colonize & Conquer series 
  • Anachronism Stew: Not terribly so, since the series attempts to maintain some credibility, but as Mycro put it regarding the second thread:
    Mycro: NOBODY EXPECTS THE AZTEC INQUISITION!
  • The Caligula: A frequent in-universe explanation for the insanity that results from putting high school- and college-aged students in charge of entire countries.

    Dark Days of Albion 

    De Camino Et Virtus Bellorum 
  • The Ageless: In this -verse, magic ability equals "perpetuality." As such, characters like Hercules and Elsa will never grow old and die. Of course, characters like Jafar, Merlin and Maleficent fall into this by default.
  • Canis Latinicus: The title was created by fabricating various anime-title-esque names and running them through Google Translate. Apparently DCeVB translates to "Furnace of Power and War!"
  • The Exile: Elsa. Lampshaded in-universe, where she's known as Elsa the Exile.
  • For Want of a Nail: Aside from the entire Disneyverse having a bearing on the plot and magic equaling perpetuality, the main plot divergence is simply Olaf not meeting up with Anna and Kristoff during the events of Frozen. Without him, they never find Elsa, who remains isolated, and Anna and Hans marry back in Arendelle.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: The Jotun aren't a terribly big threat, even without Hercules being on the heroes' side. Justified in that Elsa created them to scare people away, not to actually hurt them. It's actually a bit sad to watch them struggle to deal with people who simply aren't scared by them.

    Fate/alter chasm 
  • No Social Skills: Joseph only ever opens his mouth to put his foot in it, it seems like.

    The Godfathers 
  • Badass Israeli: Jaron is the son of a death god and has military training from his time in the IDF.
  • Kill It with Fire: Raizo's standard attack, as a sun demigod.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Krista has this ability, capable of transforming into seemingly any animal. She seems to prefer partial transformations, though.

    Left 4 Dead 4 
  • Annoying Arrows: Zig-Zagged. Jason's arrows were perfectly capable of killing a zombie, but unless they bled out or took an arrow right in the head the zombies didn't notice and were more than willing to keep attacking.
  • Anyone Can Die: Partly because of a decision partway through the RP to use actual characters from the game, but so far Jason, Roma, Mathias, Gus and Sam have died.
  • Body Horror: Roma turning into a Spitter. His tongue liquefied and dribbled out of his mouth.
  • Chainsaw Good: Gus' Weapon of Choice. Justified in that he's a lumberjack.
  • Implacable Man: The Infected demonstrably don't feel pain. They're just as easy to kill as normal people, but an injury that would incapacitate a human (such as an arrow through the shoulder) won't slow them down any more than the actual physical damage.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: The entirety of the Common Infected. They ran through a chainsaw blade trying to kill Gus.

    Magic and War (HPRP) 
  • Crash-Into Hello: Lil and Gene meet this way, while Lil is attempting catch a runaway Nachash.

    Pokémon Alexandrite 
  • Crapsack World: Team Rocket has taken over the entire Johto region. It's implied that Hoenn suffered the same fate.

    Reign of Immortals 

    Ring of Fire 
  • Adaptational Badass: Mutavore put up one hell of a fight against the Jaegers at the beginning. Somewhat justified in that Striker Eureka wasn't around to serve it it's own titanic ass at the time.
  • Autobots, Rock Out!: During the Harbinger fight after losing two Jaegers in a row (including their most powerful), the Shatterdome gives the Rangers a morale booster: Queen's "We Will Rock You". The general sentiment afterward:
    From Los Angeles with love, mother&^%$er!
  • Epic Fail: Titan Atlas attempted to climb atop the Wall to jump on a kaiju. The Wall didn't support it, leading to Atlas randomly destroying a section of wall and falling on its back in the water.
  • Killed Off for Real: Striker Eureka and Shadow Fang.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Harbinger kills Striker Eureka immediately.
  • Reformed Criminal: Iron Storm's Jaeger pilots are reformed criminals.

    Storm the Castle 
  • Berserk Button: Insult Felix' Cloak Goddess at your peril.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Felix, as is only appropriate given who he's based on. The man is starting a religion based on a cloak falling out of the sky.
  • Continuity Nod: Elsa's cloak that blew away during "Let It Go" landed on Lydia's head early in the RP.
  • Expy: Felix is outright stated to basically be PewDiePie if the latter were rendered in the Frozen style of animation.

    Trolls & Trinkets series 
  • Affectionate Nickname: The group of Danish assassins in T&T3 are known as "The Dane Train."
  • Armor and Magic Don't Mix: In the third roleplay armor is the most common answer to powerful magic-users, because mithril acts as metallic antimagic.
  • By-the-Book Cop: David in both T&T2 and T&T3. The man practically worships the book.
  • Knight Templar: David from the latter two T&T threads. Break a law and he will throw you in jail.
  • Mad God: Ocmontoc/Okmentok, God of Catapults, is implied to be this.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: The brothers Octavion and Julios in T&T are named after the first of the Roman Caesars.

    Unholy Intervention 
  • Beware the Silly Ones: To the canon RWBY characters, Jeff is primarily known for not ever giving a damn. Then Canus picks a fight with him and he straight up drops the "not a god" act and punts him into deep space.
  • Killed Off for Real: Canus is rendered immune to the effects of gravity by Jeff, hurling him into deep space as Remnant's solar system orbits away out from under him.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Jeff keeps his powers toned down just enough to merely be an exceptionally good fighter... right up until Gehenna shows up and attacks his friends.
  • Misapplied Phlebotinum: The main characters are explicitly gods and functionally omnipotent. What do they use their phenomenal cosmic powers for? To mess with people. Talk about not meeting your full potential.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Canus gets to completely negate any force applied to him on a whim. Unfortunately (for him), he still needs to breathe.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Each of the four main characters is completely omnipotent.
  • Wham Shot: In-universe. Jeff, ostensibly a first-year student at Beacon Academy (though admittedly an exceptionally strong one), disposes of the third-most-powerful Huntsman on Remnant in less than a minute. Ren is understandably shocked.

    A World of Dust and Souls 
  • Deflector Shields: Nisha can create them using her Semblance, Feedback. As the name suggests, they release the energy fed into them in a concussive blast when they've taken enough hits - or when Nisha decides they do.
  • Demolitions Expert: Tyson is Team SNST's dust specialist, eschewing the normal "magic spell" techniques in favor of making dust-laced explosives. This is helped by his Semblance, Firebrand, which lets him charge an object with explosive power and turn it into a hand grenade.
  • Flying Weapon: Sterling's Forge ability lets him duplicate and telekinetically control any object he's touching. Usually this is his sword, leading to him fighting in tandem with four more floating blades.
  • Green Thumb: Sienna's Semblance, Flora, allows her to control plants in this manner. Given the prevalence of Aura and bladed weapons, it's more a utility power than a heavy-hitting combat ability at its current level.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Tyson spends the majority of his time at the mercy of his partner's insanity, along with just generally having really terrible luck. Then the White Fang kidnapped Nisha. They did not enjoy the experience.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: When he appears, Ladon no sells everything Team SNST can throw at him, taking first Sterling and then Opal out of the fight in one hit each.
