  42. imo it should be a modern (or maybe 80s) setting and the players should be the late ernest p. worrell's nieces and nephews who have more focused roles based on aspects of how ernest is portrayed in the good ernest movies

  47. "the good ernest movies" is a sentence that implies deep opinions
  48.

  52. a menial laborer who is good at social interactions with other lower-class people, a disguise swapper, a bull-in-a-china-shop who thinks he's the good social one/party face but just causes ultimately positive results by accidentally breaking things and burning bridges
  53. maybe also a gadgeteer/goofy scientist since we should draw on scared stupid as well as saves christmas
  54. also one playbook should be a non-ernest-related straight person like the runaway teen in saves christmas and the competent boy kid in scared stupid

  65. the straight person's signature is the tradeoff between being generally competent and not a goofball vs. having some kind of less fantastical social-emotional baggage
  66. they are the exception to the other playbooks' shared mechanic of needing to earn tokens via bumbling/failing to pull off some kind of spectacular save/feat at a key moment
  67. in general the gameplay loop should be trying to make the players/gm laugh by being an ineffectual goof and then when the stakes actually matter you turn in the tokens to save the day
  68. it's not belonging outside belonging, it's bumbling outside belonging!!!

  73. Ernest successfully completed initiation into a warrior society without realizing it
  74. it's canon

  79. this honestly doesnt need the ernest """license""", i think this gameplay loop concept would make a fun generalized goofball adventure comedy system
  80. i think i actually want to take the step by step "hack" development materials in dream apart/dream askew as a base and make something from this now

  90. i really genuinely think there is something to the core concept of "earn tokens via fucking up in a funny way to spend on saving the day"

  96. honestly if you could get the license cheaply, Ernest Saves RPGs could actually sell
  97. just as a recognizable thing
  98. it instantly gets across the point

  108. i like where your mind is at but
  109. i think that's too dark/disrespectful since jim varney is actually dead irl
