...well. Lets. Let's see where this bizarre adventure takes us

Tempus Class Frigate. Whoever I'm dealing with, whatever I'm dealing with, it sounds like boarding will be required at some point. And this is the ship for the job

>Skirmish with the Hollow Men (400 CP)

Oh, I'm sorry-you were expecting vulnerable fleshy targets? TOO BAD, IT'S JUST NECRONS. Well, mostly Necrons. Including a Destroyer-I WILL find a way to fit the big lug into one of these transport ships just so's I can shoot down these fuckers with impunity. As for myself, that plasma weapon will be put to good use.

>exit jumper, bonked on the head
>end scene
>enter jumper, sisters of battle, and lewd

I would like to remind everyone I am like 99% Necron at this point, of our own volition. This must be both the most tolerant and also sexually repressed group of sororitas in the galaxy.

I dread to think how much of my mechanical chassis has been lubricated.

I can already see my companions' reactions: Odin is bent over trying to contain his sides, Elodie facepalming, Natasha silently raising an eyebrow, Killer and Kirsty giving me the thumbs up wearing shit-eating grins as Frost, and L-Mo take the oppurtunity to volunteer for assistance in...oiling...and Morathi shamelessly laughing her ass off.

It has a Wiki, but long story short is that HP magic is the king of Utility.
It has some useful spells for combat, most well known being the Killing Curse. But it's really power is Utility. Enchanting things to warn you of danger, warding areas so people will "remember" something they need to do and walk away, making things bigger on the inside than they are on the outside, etc.

Utility is HP magic's strong suit

In Canon? No
You want to dodge it or block it with something big and heavy like a Statue or a Tombstone
A shield might work, but it'll explode into pieces

In Theory, just Theory mind you, you might be able to survive if you have all three of the Dealthy Hallows and are their 'master'.
But you'd need to beat Dumbledore, Malfoy, or Harry at any given point in the story to master the Wand. And god only knows what it takes to master the other two

I worked out a while back when Light of Terra part 3 first came out a way to compact the ship down to a mecha. One that can be enhanced by both mecha import options and companion import options, makes for a damn fine machine. All the benefits of your combo, but in a much more space-efficient form.

It goes through Harry Potter magic like it isn't even there. And Harry Potter magic isn't that powerful. I think a jumper could bring to bear enough magical power to block the Killing Curse.

Sounds more forgivable to me, then. A spell that only kills people if you really want to kill them would be a safe and humane replacement for other magical attacks. No collateral damage, it only kills when you intend it to. And it can't be blocked by magic, too, so you don't have to worry about it rebounding off your target's shield. Used properly, it would be a safe and humane way handle threats.

Yeah, I had the same issue, but I re-read the books. It first comes up when Harry tries to use the Torture Curse on Bellatrix, she tells him you need to WANT it.

But you need to want to kill PEOPLE, not just your target. All three curses require you to be fucking crazy to be capable of casting them in the first place.

ANWAY how I plan to not immediately die to various factors:

>Wrath's Carrion
At the end of the day, they're men with human frailties. Locating that base is a priority, via good old fashioned scouting. Specific order /not/ to engage; I intend to use the frigate to blast the shit out of their life support systems from the outside in. By boarding if necessary.

>Hollow Men
This will be trickier, without them having a fixed base. Keep the ships moving-away from derelict wrecks. Maintain constant communication; never split up the main party to ensure the ships can cover each other. If boarding needs to occur-this is where the Inferno Rounds, Kakophoni and Necron troops shine. Engaging at a distance is of course preferable.

>Kheradruakh
Well-lit corridors. Constant cross-examination of myself and associates, via in-jokes for the companions, key words for the Sororitas. Again-do not split the party. Keep the Black Death near our person at all times.

Oh, and stick near the Necron Destroyer. After ensuring its detection abilities are buffed as highly as possible.

Light of Terra 2.5 You can (not) retcon
Tempest Class Frigate, seems like it will be the most useful for here.
Skirmish With the Hollow Men (400) Honestly I'd say it would fit better if the Deldar was the one that gives you cp while these guys give you nothing (or maybe split it 100-300) that's more fluff though since it all comes out the same
Sisters of Battle, eh suppose I can't complain too much, frankly I'd prefer the aetheists because they have the more interesting shenanigans
Decay, the Second World (1000), I've got a grudge to settle here.
Kherakurd the Decapitator (free)
Dropping the Reflex shield from my part 3 build (1500)
Stealth Field Generator for the Light (1000)
Yeld Spyrer Armor (300) An ever improving camouflage suit that removes bodily needs, this baby will be seeing a lot of use
Pyroclast Flame Projector (0) This should be immensely useful against Kherakud
Entropic Anomalies (300)
Genestealer infestation (700) Well this will be really annoying to deal with
Counterfire Defense System for the Light (400)
Automated Repair system for the Pre-Emptive Retaliation (0)
As for how this works out, I leave the Archeologist and Priscilla to run the affairs back on the world I'm colonizing. Meanwhile Deathmark, the Tomb Spyder, 20 Necrons, My Nakama and Platoon Guy (and a bunch of guys from the Light) go off on an adventure in search of sweet loot. Frankly Kherakud will probably whittle away at key crew members before going after me personally, the Necrons will hopefully be able to get some hits in and will be serving as a security detail for critical crew members. In the end I managed to purge him with the light of the Emperor (a flamer) though.

And they all apparently have a thing for me, and all get jealous.

The Komato general knew the transmission was fake because the Tasen mentioned a planetary scanning system, something that the Komato made up as propaganda. He didn't invade at first because he was tired of all the genocide.
If you have a high kill count then Iji sends the signal that causes them to invade. If you have a low kill count, Iji rfuses to send the signal, but Iosa (The invincible Komato warrior and 2nd in command.) convinces the general to invade anyway, because he won't be able to explain his decision to high command.

So... you're unwilling to kill them, since they apparently like you. But they don't respect your boundaries, or personal space, and are clingy and physical, and they want to do lewd things without much concern for civilized concepts like 'consent'.

...welp.

If I had a bunch of borderline-rapist not-chaos cultists infatuated with me, and diplomatic attempts to resolve the situation failed, the next step is Befriending with extreme prejudice, and if that failed, I'd probably leave them behind somewhere in disgust. Possibly after resorting to Moral Manipulation to impose upon them proper consciences, depending on how much they un-impressed me with their conduct, and the need to violate their rights to preserve those of others.

Not sure if any of that helps, but this seems to be a "brought upon yourself" problem; Companions are optional, and there's no reason they need to stay with you beyond the jump. If it's really THAT much of a problem, you don't need to live with it for any longer than your time in 40k.

Befriending is similar in general, and I'm willing to Befriend more or less indiscriminately, since it makes people more Good-aligned.

As such, I will outright brainwash people for a Good cause, generally as an alternative to execution. Imposing a conscience with my knockoff of the Moral Manipulation Machine effectively makes someone into a Good person, and that's better than leaving a corpse. If circumstances permit, I'll offer the choice of the MMM over conventional justice (and resulting imprisonment/execution), but sometimes it's just too useful to suborn the BBEG and thereby thwart the plot.

I view the involuntary use of this power to be only slightly better than an execution, though. After I developed this power, I thought about it for awhile, and concluded that I'd only use it in cases where I'd otherwise actually have to kill the individual in question, and not just because, say, they're a sociopath and could use a shot of morality.

It's definitely worth thinking hard about, since the fact that I have this power makes me more willing to 'kill', since they're not really 'dead' afterwards. I've got my companions to keep me honest, though, and the other two original magical girls each have veto power over the use of the thing. I've occasionally been tempted to distribute copies of my MMM to existing prison systems as a capital punishment alternative, but I've been convinced each time that negative knock-on effects would outweigh the benefits.

Fair enough.

I lean towards preference utilitarianism, so modifying someone against their wishes in such a way as to prevent them from wanting the things they want is basically worse than rape.

But... the resulting individual is also a person with their own wants and desires, and the kicker is they usually thank me for doing it to them; they're glad to no longer be the kind of person they were and to want the things they now want. And the net results, in terms of preferences fulfilled, are positive, since they'd have been dead otherwise, but are instead upstanding moral citizens, or possibly even heroes.

And, again: utilitarianism. The ends really do justify the means, if you've done all the math, including accounting for knock-on effects (which many naive utilitarians fail to do).

I've got a question about the Evangelion jump that I'd appreciate if anyone could answer: If I import a companion as an Evangelion, does their Eva form keep their abilities or do they just wind up as a control interface like Yui is? Because with the new Light of Terra offering more options for customization of the ship, I'm revisiting my "use Kantai Collection, Transformers and Macross to turn the Light of Terra into a super robot" plan. And it occurs to me that making it an Evangelion would be a nice and simple way to install the mind-machine interface I've been trying to put into it. Plus, the current Light of Terra-bot is only 15 meters tall, and Super Robot Wars has conditioned me to believe that all the coolest mecha are at least 40 meters tall.

Eh demon weapons in Soul Eater, they aren't swords so much as they can transform into swords at will. Also all of them but one that did the free Meister thing with as well as Gyarados and Aegislash are chainswords, Gyarados being a big zweihander Aegislash having a custom form most like their pokemon form, so they are both sword and shield. I don't know how to actually turn any of them into actual regular swords though I doubt the Aegislash would mind, nor would my Guide from Legend of Zelda, who is bound to a sword just like Fi.

Very little is said on the durability of the gae bolg-however. do note that it is considered standard practice to cut it out of whichever poor bastard you stuck it in.

Considering the main guy famous for wielding it was taught how to do so by someone else, it can be inferred that other people spent a long time mastering the gae bolg, and that it has been cut out of A LOT of victims.

It might not be famous for it, but it sounds pretty damn durable to me. There's certainly no record of it being smashed, to the best of my knowledge.

The barbs activate on every stab. That's why it was considered so feared, and a last resort.

>control how the barbs attack

uh...the guy who wielded it couldn't-but he wasn't a demigod. So-I'd say there's a chance you MIGHT be able to exert some control over the barbs if your parent is a Celtic war god of some sort. I'm not sure, but it seems worth a shot if you have a cow to practice on or something

Thanks, I'd still be careful with it so that I don't break it on some of the tougher enemies.
Having to cut it out of someone sounds fucked up, do the barbs not retract until it's removed?

I'd hope for the best and that I can eventually learn to control the barbs.
If I took it at a discount by stealing it would the previous owner be dangerous on his own or is it mostly because of the spear?

All this spear talk is making me want to use them like Oberyn.

I don't think you are supposed to interact with other pantheons as a general rule, as in the deities would tell you to not do that. However if your imported pantheon has an afterlife that could be used they may have their own variant of Stygian Iron.

I hadn't thought of that but I assume so since the metal still exists in the setting so it could be explained as a weapon you found.
I don't know if it can be replicated in other worlds since it is cooled in the River Styx but maybe that isn't essential or a perk can get around that.

Generally the various pantheons (including imported ones) will have their own sacred materials somewhat unique to the pantheon. So while you probably won't technically be Stygian Iron you can probably get something akin to Stygian Iron filtered through the lens of your pantheon. Do keep in mind that those things are traditionally used by children of the gods of the Dead and may have minor adverse effects when wielded by others.

>> No.37969605

>>37969515
There's no coherent ruling on this, since different people interpret them differently. What I've been doing for my Waddle Dees and Christmas Elves is treating them as one person with a lot of bodies, so any CP upgrades I buy for them affect the lot. So instead of "500 each" or "500 between them" it's "500 to their group, and they all get in on whatever you buy with it".

Sort of, yeah.

My inherent assumptions are that the groups are less competent than individual Companions, which works out semi-analogous to explicit CP-dilution. I've been working with a round number of 10,000 Waddle Dees, so they're basically just mooks, and can't specialize at all. The 15 Christmas Elves I have are more individually competent, but given their specialization, they're mostly just lab/workshop assistants.

Question has anyone house ruled on magic and cybernetics r robotics? I mean I know Shadow Run is specific that magic doesn't work as well with cybernetics, but what about others where the question is never brought up? Like Slayers and Elder Scrolls?

>> No.37970144

>>37970091
If it's never said that you can't use magic and have cybernetics then you should assume you can. Most magic systems don't interfere with tech like that.

Worth noting that Shadowrun magic only malfunctions around Shadowrun tech, according to the jump.

Only other cases I know of are Dresden Files, where magic fucks with all tech (goes away post-jump I believe), and in a minor way with Star Wars. In Star Wars, force lightning doesn't work through cybernetics because it'd fry them, so assume the same with any lightning magic and Star Wars cybernetics.

With Elder Scrolls though, I'm pretty sure magic and tech work together fine, both the Reman Dynasty and Dwemer combined magic and tech to some level. Reman to build space ships, Dwemer in a lot of things.

Being inordinately rich, for the most part. RNG sent me to Nine-to-Five early, and I went for Master of the Craft in business (and that wasn't the first of my financial-type perks). In any civilized world, I wind up spending lots of money on food and supplies (I make more back by plundering the stock market). There were a few worlds in which I wasn't able to do this properly on account of insufficient local infrastructure (TES comes to mind), resulting in my having to limit how many Waddle Dees I have active at any given time (which is also sometimes a practical constraint in general; armies are obvious, after all).

Post-Minecraft, my Waddle Dees are basically self-sufficient, since they can do farming/hunting in Ages, and store the resulting food and supplies in my Applied Energistics storage servers.

I don't recall that discussion. How does it work?

Heart of Steve means you take HP damage instead of physical wounds, Dog Talisman means you don't die as long as you have it. The combo means that, in the face of absurd damage that would otherwise blow through all your toughness, health, and regen, you're still alive and regenerating back up from 0 HP.

To negate the Dog Talisman, someone will need to specifically remove it from you. With Dog Talisman alone, you aren't protected from dismemberment, so if (say) you're holding the talisman in your hand, someone can cut off your hand and then kill you. Add in Heart of Steve, and they can only pull that trick for the moment or two when you're at 0 HP, before your regen ticks again.

It's possible that an intelligent opponent that overpowers you can figure out how to get past the defence, but the Wither is a mindless monster. The Wither's disintegration and permanent damage effects could probably break the Talisman eventually, if he and all his allies were totally defeated and it was able to just shoot him repeatedly for days, but I imagine that he's got some trick he'll be able to pull to make that not happen.
