MOBA character 

As the Brawler, Rough is methodical and scientific, squaring up in a boxer's stance, using jabs, hooks, and crosses. However, as the Shooter, he becomes wild, firing from the hip and almost prancing with the Ballista.

As the Brawler, Rowdy is wild, using a weighted parasol to swing, uppercut, and give overhead smashes. As the Shooter, though, she becomes cautious, lining up her every shot with precision.

Their signature weapon is split between them: The Man-Portable Ballista. Carefully concealed to be a fantastic invention rather than outworld tech, the Ballista is a long-ranged weapon that fires at high damage but a low rate of fire.

When Rough & Rowdy join, one of them at random is chosen to be the Shooter. The other becomes the Brawler.

MOBA character 

Rough is a tall, lanky man, with red hair, freckles, and an immaculate Van Dyke beard. He wears a sleeveless vest that bares his arms and proper slacks.

Rowdy is a shorter woman, of mixed heritage, with darker hair and complexion, and also with freckles. She wears an Anne Oakley-style prairie bonnet and a magnificent hat.

MOBA character 

Rough and Rowdy are a husband-wife pair hero. They crash-landed a decade before the main genre departure point, and went to ground - by becoming bandits.

The two influences are:

1) Straight couples that are so rebelliously wholesome that they, compared to normal media, somehow feel like queer representation: Morticia & Gomez, Jesse & James, Bunnie & Antoine.

2) Larger than life wild-west gangsters: Bonnie & Clyde, Frank & Annie Oakley.

MOBA character 

Getting thoughts from my shower out on paper before I head out. This is for a MOBA I haven't made, but the gist of the world is: Generic Fantasy Land becomes the Weird Wild West within a decade of spaceships crash-landing and depositing their sci-fi crew onto the locals.

Character name: Rough & Rowdy.

I did a parody of a silver age Spider-man cover, featuring Into the Spider-verse characters instead!

uspol, history 

Holy hell. Even the most ambitious UBI plans the left has floated in the last few years has called for, at most, a round $1000/month.

Don't let the Silent Generation and Baby Boomers tell you they worked hard and scrimped to get by when the government was giving out salaries of $22,500 (in 2019 dollars).

So, looked up how much artists made during Federal One.

Artists made $23.60 a week - or $432.78 a week in 2019 dollars.

Theatre workers (including actors and stagecrew) made $23.86 - or $437.55.

asking for help 

Winter Storm Gia shutting down deliveries (i.e., my job) for five days, *exactly* five days before my mid-month bills come in, has me in a precarious spot. It doesn't help that I've already missed three days of work this month due to illness.

If you could send me a taco, or even just give this a boost, I would be grateful.
