      Jon The Risemonger

      We need your prompts for this week's On The Spot. Submit as many as you'd like. We promise to only use the good ones and make fun of the rest.


      QUICK THINKING

      • Come up with a category for the guests to list off possible answers for (i.e. Things not to say after someone says "I love you" for the first time.)
      • Category with a lot of possibilities for answers are the best.

      GIVING HEADLINES

      • Find an odd story from the recent news with an equally odd headline that we can remove a word or two from for the the guests to fill in the blank.
      • Look for headlines where a blank space would leave the story open to a lot of different interpretations. Ambiguity is key.

      ABCs OF STORYTELLING

      • Come up with a 2 person scenario where the characters interact with each other a lot.
      • Be as descriptive as you want, this is a scene the guests have to play out.
      • Scenes that work best for this game have a high potential for rapid dialogue and confrontation.

      What if this week we took a happily married couple who just had a baby together less than 6 months ago and we separated them and had them fight each other? What if?

      COME AGAIN? You give me a prompt for a scene and I make them act it out. This week I'm looking for prompts involving:

      • Things that normally DON'T happen at a strip club.
      • What happens when you find a Genie and things go wrong.
      • The missing Shakespearean play for the modern millenial.

      BONUS GAME: BECAUSE I SAID SO... This is a new one. All I need is:

      • Questions kids might ask an adult
      • Don't get caught up on the standards, get creative

      I want to say thanks for everyone tuning in live for the show. In my opinion, that's the real way to watch the show and it seems a lot of you think so too. xoxo The Risemonger

    • On The Spot: Game of Thrones PSA

      3 months ago

      Jon The Risemonger

      PSA for this week’s On The Spot: we talk about Game of Thrones A LOT but tried to stay away from season 7 spoilers. In fact we call out a season 6 spoiler before a game & give a timestamp for when you can skip to in order to skip over it. That all being said the episode is particularly good & involves Ryan Haywood dancing like a white boy at the disco at one point. So, please enjoy!

      Game of Thrones finale is happening after this next week's OTS so we are making the whole show Game of Thrones themed, starting with prompts. So, with that in mind, give me some ideas to use in our games with some Ice & Fire in them:


      ABCs OF STORYTELLING

      Since it's Game of Thrones week let's make prompts for this week all about:

      • You're all time favorite moments from Game of Thrones, any season.
      • Preferably scenes where two people were the main points of interaction

      QUICK THINKING

      • Come up with a category for the guests to list off possible answers for (i.e. Things not to say after someone says "I love you" for the first time.)
      • Category with a lot of possibilities for answers are the best.
      • Make sure it's about something that would live in the Game of Thrones world

      NEW GAME: JUST A QUICKIE

      We tested it in the post-show for FIRST members this last week and want to try it out now in the big leagues. All we need is some prompts for a scene. Since we're doing Game of Thrones this week give me ideas for:

      • Your favorite scene that never happened between two characters (fanfic essentially)

      My the old gods and the new be ever in your favor. xoxo The Risemonger

      Once again we gather at the alter of On The Spot and ask for sacrifices of goofs and gags to be used in this week's episode. Who shall offer up their gift to gods of fart jokes and prat falls this week?


      CUNNING LINGUISTICS

      • Go to urbandictionary.com and find a word or phrase for guests to guess a definition for.
      • Pro tip: try and find words/phrases that are not just weird sex position descriptions.

      ASS SWIPE

      • We need suggestions for personality traits of the worst date ever.
      • Submit 1 trait or a even a set of 2 that play off of each other.
      • Feel free to get weird with this one, you've seen how the game goes ;)
      • Also, we need people to write these profiles for so let me know in the comments if you want some love-life help.

      COME AGAIN? You give me a prompt for a scene and I make them act it out. This week I'm looking for prompts involving:

      • Things you hate to admit that you have to do for your job.
      • Memorable things from Summer vacation trips.
      • Things kindergarteners argue about with each other.

      May the goofs be with you. xoxo The Risemonger


    • New FIRST Merch!

      4 months ago

      Jon The Risemonger

      When I’m not spending my time being the best driver ever in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, I spend my days surrounded by a team of pretty awesome designers. I tweeted out recently about a big brainstorming session we were having about merch. While we were brainstorming designs, we realized that it’s been too long since we released any new FIRST-exclusive merchandise. Good news, though. We’re the ones who can change that. So we did.


      Starting today, FIRST members have access to not one, but TWO new FIRST-exclusive shirts in the RT Store. Check ‘em out!


      kOKxEPV.jpg


      There is a right way and a wrong way to let people know that you’re number one. Here is the right way. Enjoy.


      EkOmmgR.jpg


      So Tony, our Lead Product Designer, for some reason always thought grapes were just green and got confused as to why all our grape stuff was purple. Putting our concerns over Tony’s naiveté aside, we wanted to pay tribute to the green underdog of the grape world, so we let him design this FIRST-exclusive variant of the infamous People Like Grapes shirt.


      Moving forward, we are committed to releasing FIRST-exclusive merch on a more regular basis. And by “merch” I mean more than just shirts – we’re looking into apparel and products. If there are any designs or items you’d like to see, leave a comment and let us know!


      P.S. You should follow the RT Store on Twitter. Or not. Your call. xoxo

      Hey Jon,


      You were talking about how terrible nutella is for you, and it seemed like this made you a little sad. I use this recipe(http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/01/09/better...) to make my own nutella. It is really healthy and it tastes incredible! It is almost better than what you buy in the store. Anyway, I thought you might like it to try it sometime. Have a great day! Sending hugs and positive energy your way!!

      Hey Jon,

      So for class, we were told to do a short presentation about a graphic design(er) and I suddenly remembered, "Hey Risinger's a graphic designer! Why not choose him?" So I've been kinda stalking your social media and found the stuff you posted about your progress. I just wanted to say thanks for posting those. Even if this wasn't an assignment, it's really cool reading those and I wish I tried to find them earlier. So yeah, thanks for those awesome designs, sharing your thoughts with us, and not making me try to find random video clips where you happened to mention your thought trains. Can't wait to do the presentation now!

      Not digging the last game for On the Spot. I was laughing the whole way through but the last game I was like get on with it please. The story time made yo many pauses in between players so it wasn't on going and keeping the story alive it was like Hey then pause then Ho. For it to be On the spot you should make it On the Spot thinking no pauses. Maybe have a game with you give character plot and prompts before hand, (I just realize that was the old game)....or how about you make them make up a brand new story with their own characters and everything and to involve the audience bring in prompts but laid out, idk you guys are the professionals just tweet the show a little.

      Are you going to adress the whole On The Spot debacle at allat any point, or...

      Anyway, if there is going to be any sort of apology, I personally don't want one from you (it'd be appreciated in conjunction), no what is needed; not for me, for the many people in the fandom that have had to deal with the traumatic experience of rape, and of having their rapist go scott free, what is needed is both Geoff and Gavin to adress what they said, and acknowledge why it was unaceptable. No Fauxpoligies, no "sorry if we offended you".

      I oulled my sponsorship a while ago because of shit Gavin said and then had Meg make exucuses for.I know I really can't play the money card here. I'm just appealing to you, as a person who seems to be halfway decent in their morals, to actually sit down and give the whoel thing some thought.

      • Risvaag FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        Have we really gotten to the point where we care what people feel offended by?
        Nothing in this world no matter how traumatic is above being ridiculed. Sure people have bad experiences or even down right traumatic experiences, but to be honest I kind of doubt that if you have been raped and are still traumatized by it, Geoff and Gavin joking about it is pretty much a drop in the ocean of their problems.
        To be honest people like you advocating the "I imagine other people potentially having issues that are not mine and I am now going to voice my opinion about how they should be apologized to for this horrendous treatment by RT" attitude kinda piss me off.
        If you have been through it and it makes you feel uncomfortable: sorry you went through it but this is an RT production so you know what to expect.
        If you have not been through it your two cent on it are literally worthless so spare us your complaining.
        It's not like they said anything downright cruel. They didn't advocate rape or rapists being let go. They joked about it and despite how "offended" people might feel that is absolutely acceptable.
        Regarding people feeling "offended" please just watch this and remember that you being offended has no impact on what is right and wrong.

      (v) To completely fail at something.
      (n) To be a complete failure.

      Origin: From Rooster Teeth's Blaine Gibson, who, while not particularly a failure in his own right, is constantly mocked as one by his co-workers.
      Person 1: Did you get a load of Bob trying to do a 360 no-scope and somehow ending up grenading himself?
      Person 2: Yeah that was hilarious, he totally blained it!
      Person 3: Yeah he's such a blaine.

      Hello it's Peyton Voline again and I would like to inform you that my family and I are thinking of going to Austin over the summer to look at colleges in the area I was hoping to contact you guys while I'm there and present to you my options in hopes that you could help suggest a college. I imagine that you guys have more experience with this than I so I would like to talk. I will contact you guys later with a certain date of my arrival. Thank you guys for being awesome and I understand that you are busy especially now and thank you for any time you take to read this.

      Amazing news story title you could use for on the spot:
      School Apologizes After Replacing Blind Child’s Cane With A Foam Pool Noodle
      This was an actual thing believe it or not.
