Current version of it (perks are going 1-2-4-8), let me know if it needs buffing:

Revolution! [800 CP, discount Independent] – When it comes to the settled societies you face, you can find many dissidents among them. Enough, even to launch a grand rebellion – one that might even be called heretical. Should you decide to lead such a rebellion, any such ill-contents will rise with you in the name of whatever cause you deem fit. This will never, however, be more than half the number of the military of whichever nation you rebel against.

Well, I took the PhD in BBall in Barkley's Slam Gaiden, and I DO have some psychic telekinesis powers scattered around from Metal Gear and the new Psychonauts... and I got some singing experience from Metalocalypse... and with the new Valkyria Chronicles jump, I can make pseudo-Valkyria robots, which has most of the same letters, and are also actually made of metal?

Not even once.

Maybe it's me being an autistic fuck like that. Or maybe I've just invested too much. I don't know. But I really like where I've gotten, and finding new jumps makes me sit back and think of what I have as well as what I can do to make workarounds and creative constructions to make some staggering things. Plus... well, to me it feels better than just going "Whoops, better remake my build 'cause I missed something."

Things like Evangelion or Bloody Roar or Terra Formars? Or even Light of Terra or Supernatural or MMZ or Mob Jump? The choices they give are fucking BRUTAL and make me seriously think about what I really need, or if I feel I have to suffer for the sake of really getting stuff I want.

Honestly, jump-building itself has been a blast in creative thinking, and I can't possibly restart my chain now as a result. Even if I suffer immensely due to some choices.

Crossroads from the Musician jump lets you make deals for people's souls.

Soul Eater lets you eat souls, but the jump notes that this is a bad idea unless you follow restrictions I can't recall right now.

Mostly it's a system that amounts to eating only the souls that the god of death says you can, which are basically all really evil people, and witches. It's 99 evil souls then a witch's soul which then turns the demon weapon(only demon weapons get to eat souls anyway) into a Death Scythe, granting them more power as a demon weapon and some abilities in line with the abilities of the witch.

Well, let's put it this way.

You know how in Medieval, you have the Mongol invasion and then the Timurid invasion?

Well, the Mongols won't be alone this time if you take this +600.

First, it's the only +600 that doesn't take away your non-leadership perks.

Second, remember that one army/force/person you really did not want to ever run into again? Well, they're back, and they are evenly matched with you in both power and army, with but a single variable - are you a better commander?

It gets worse, too. You know that foe you thought you were safe from, either from them not knowing you during their Jump or them not even having a Jump?

They've shown up with an army better than yours in every way save for the leadership, and Timur is working for them.

Reapply to Rome or Shogun's events as you will.

Originally? Was thinking 4 Individuals for Yautja and Marine factions.

This is a case where 'multiple power sources' is a good idea. Ki and/or psionic abilities are probably not affected by any given antimagic effect, superpowers are almost certainly unaffected, and superscience definitely works.

Having a broad base of power gives you options. If the antimagic is a voluntary effect that someone is generating, psionic or superscientific mind control can compel them to deactivate it. If the antimagic is being produced by a device, a straightforward physical assault augmented by ki and superpowers should let you destroy the device quickly. If the magic is a reality warping effect, high-level ki and psionic powers could let you reality warp right back, at least enough to let you access your own mana. And, of course, any given target using any given effect could always be indirectly attacked with robots or orbital bombardment or something, if you're willing to put in the effort to develop the required tech base and firepower.

Even if you're used to relying on your giant hammer, that doesn't mean you have to use it for everything, and devise elaborate solutions for preventing you from losing it. Cultivating a bit of flexibility will help in all kinds of situations where your main plan fails or is unworkable.

However there's one pokemon that was immune that's Alex. She was our house pokemon, kinda like house pet. She was my birthday present, before the incident. I had forgotten to take her with me, when it happened.

However Charmanders are prized pokemon, so Team Rocket is after my pokemon. It's why I carry a pistol. It also helps that I'm Psychic, something I found out after Poocheyena attack. I tried to keep it under wraps and throw it out when I need too.

While I lack a lot of social graces, I did graduate school with perfect grades. Something of a Savant or or something. I guess side effect of being Psychic or it could be reverse is true, as well.

To clarify...
It works against fighting for power in overlapping opposed antimagic fields, one of which is your own, by playing your way to opposed caster-level checks even for those trying the same exact strategy against you, while also maintaing your own power if wanted. You need to be extremely powerful to pull it off against every possible enemy though. Or at least that's how I remember it, and it's the closest I can think of to antiX3-magic. What book's cheater of mystra from again?

At the very least, you can use Invoke Magic to spin up one of the various lower level antimagic spells (there's a wait-it-out debuff ray version), and those should work even when subjected to an antimagic field.

Which jump has the perk that lets you combine 20 odd mundane things to upgrade something similar?

It's like taking 20 regular swords and combining them with an enchanted sword to improve the enchanted sword, or something like that.

I trained in my art of the Smoke, and managed to make the Bloodthirsty Blades of a Video conduit my own - blades of vapor that exploded after making contact with an opponent. I clashed with The Icicle time and time again, and each time we both grew in power. Until finally. With one, well-placed shot from the Glock. I won.

It felt... It didn't feel good. Despite her twisted view of the world, my clashes with The Icicle had caused small amount of emotion to develop between us. I had looked forward to these fights with her, as long as nobody else was caught in the fray. But that night on the bridge... With a child almost dying from her wild attacks. I had to end it.

Arceus, why does it hurt. She was a murderer. I did... what I had to.

Technically no, but it doesn't really give a clear relation to item numbers and what you boost.
>Lets Give It A Boost - 600 - Discount Angel Most things work great but, sometimes that just isn't good enough. Sometimes they need alittle extra to get the job done. With you "alittle extra" seems to mean double. Any item you have can have it's effects doubled permanently while also having usage costs halved. It increases all the "stats" of the item you use this ability on so, a hammer hits harder and more accurately while that magic staff you have would shoot more powerful spells at half the charge cost. To do this you simply need multiples of the item you're going to boost. Around three of them, while this would be pretty easy for a hammer or something similar, you'll be pretty hard pressed to find three Death Stars in a decent amount of time. you could improve unique items with regular mundane items but it will take alot more of the mundane kind to double the unique item. that awesome sword that can cut down a skyscraper? You'd probably need about 20 regular swords to improve that.

Let's Give it a Boost is an abnormally powerful effect, but it does have one caveat; you can't use it more than once on the same object (as it doesn't even imply that you can keep re-doubling the same item for infinite power). So once you've doubled the effect, that's pretty much as upgraded as it's going to get. That's not a problem if you're working off stuff you can mass produce, but you'll want to be careful when Boosting artifact-derived stuff, since doing so early means seriously limiting the benefit of future upgrades.

Well, for one, figuring out exactly what it would do. It's very open ended, particularly since word-of-author is that it actually manages to work right compared to the mere 'crazy aliens with a roll of normal tape' we see in the show, so we don't have any examples as to how it would work.

Also, as the description mentions 'advanced alien technology', it might only work on tech, though the Zim universe is weird about that sort of thing and doesn't have too much of a distinction between tech and magic at high levels (spelldrives, the halloween episode, etc).

>>38306463
It doesn't explicitly say that, no. I'm working off the fact that the perk doesn't say you can easily redouble the power of things infinitely, so it's not at all reasonable to assume that you can boost things up to literally infinite power with one perk.

Perks generally aren't written in legalese, so "it doesn't say that you can't do this" is usually seen as an invalid interpretation. If you don't agree, it's your right to do so; I'm only pointing that out as a common-sense "this is the way /jc/ generally interprets perks" thing.

If you prefer to make a pistol capable of destroying the universe with a day's work, a warehouse full of guns, and the unchecked reality-destroying power of exponential progression, feel free to fanwank that you can kill absolutely everything ever with the result of one perk and some cash. Of course, that makes for a really boring story, and one which is far less interesting than even stuff like MoeAnon's "Prototype beats everything" stance, but Jumpchain is singleplayer. There's always going to be cases where no one said that a given perk doesn't give you infinite power and make you the god of all of everything, but we generally don't fanwank like that here.

>>38306685
The perk isn't actually written that way, so you're explicitly fanwanking to make that happen. That said, exponential increase of the amount of items used is a semi-reasonable limitation, if you're going to assume the possibility of multiple doublings.

>> No.38306842

>>38306793
Considering that you yourself are essentially doing the same thing but in reverse, by applying limits that do not have any basis beyond 'this is what it is generally interpreted as" you don't have much room to talk. Especially since you are the one usually pushing the 'fanwank absolutely anything' cart.

>> No.38306888

>>38306793
Eh, it's pretty unclear in any case. Either way, whether you decide it has a limit or not, you're fanwanking it, since there are no indications or evidence to support either more then the other. In the end it comes down to what people prefer to use.

>> No.38306904

>>38306740
That better be a badass luck perk to be worth 600 points. Otherwise, it's looking good so far.

>> No.38306939

>>38306842
I've already explained the basis. "This power does not say you can do X, therefore it does not do X" is common sense. For any given power, it may be more or less reasonable to let it do X anyways. Fanwank is what lies between the rules as written, and the story that results.

Generally, fanwank that involves gaining infinite power is frowned upon. See: GardenAnon, who wanted to gain all the associated powers from the superpower wiki for each of his perks, up to and including reality warping.

There's a damned good reason why we don't accept "it doesn't say I can't" as valid, and a difference between "I can't stop you from fanwanking yourself into having infinite power" and "I approve of your fanwank".

But until that fateful day-Valkyria Chronicles Jump!

Drawback: The Valkyur Have Returned, Enemy of the State: Principality of Gallia (1500). And activating in-universe shitstorm in 3...2...1. Also HA, we almost feel sorry for the peaceful territory loaded up on natural resources who's trying to pick a fight with a cosmic entity

East European Imperial Alliance

Capital of the Empire

Scientist, Age 23 (1400)

Valkyria (600). Well look at that, we shit magical crude oil. Which is going to make Maximilian froth at the mouth when his attempts at ordering us around are met with patronising head-pats and passive-aggressively setting his pants on fire. Max is a jerk.
Educated Young Man (Free). We are the very model of a modern major general
Valkyrian Science (450). We've information mechanical, historic and chemical
Manufacturing Line (250). We're very good at industry and mass producing commodities
Safety Goggles (200). And we never start experiments without wearing a pair of these
Valkyria weaponry (Free). We know the mythic histories, the Darcsens and the Yggdist faith
Class Loadout: Medic (Free). And we're proficient in medicine; this medi-gun is mostly safe
Destined Meeting: Selvaria Bles (0). In short, in matters vegetable, Valkyrian, and mineral we are the very model of a modern Major-General!

We're basically Valkyria Chronicles' Dr House, if Dr House was a mountain-sized eldritch god and also an engineer. Un-brainwashing Selvaria's loyalty will be a priority. Which is going to be doubly tricky when we spend most of our interactions bickering because we keep pranking Maximilian by portalling him onto the battlefield. Or teleporting away his clothes. Or casting illusions that make him think he's covered in bees-and then actually release bees when he least expects it.

And he can't get rid of us-because we're the only entity who can create Origin ammunition which give the rank and file a fighting chance against the oncoming valkwhatevers

And again, you try to enforce your interpretation, this time on what 'fanwank' means. Frankly, you seem to be particularly focused on this one perk. And Gardenanon was a completely different situation, since the jump maker himself told him that was not how it went, and that the perk explicitly states you only gain kinesis over your chosen item/area etc. This power does not explicitly spell out such things. You can argue the same 'it doesn't say you can do this' point all you want, but the fact remains that all the perk says is that you need to have multiples of the same item for it to work.

Frankly, the perk was poorly written, so there's some interpretation required in any case. These points were brought up when the jump first came up, and the jumpmaker didn't bother fixing them, or doing much else with the jump.

It's kind of a poor case to be basing stuff off of, but since it's already an absurdly powerful buff effect, being able to layer it at all is ridiculously overpowered. Since "I win everything forever" is boring, limits are appropriate; if a perk is poorly written and overpowered, interpreting it strictly helps keep the story you're telling somewhat coherent.

If you disagree, I can't stop you; have fun with winning everything forever.

I've always been on the one chain, but the problem is that it is nebulous as all hell beyond the first 5-10 jumps due to the fact that new content is coming out all the time, sometimes necessitating a re-write to accomodate the new content earlier (psychonauts is a good example of this. I gotta set it in at something like jump 7 or 8 now). The nebulous nature of the chain for me is mostly due to the assumption I have that the benefactor shows me ALL my choices for worlds we can go to right after pokemon, and even though I'm making the best of what I have available to me, it is not the full spectrum of worlds available to me, and as such, I cannot make a coherant chain because of that lack of knowledge here that I would otherwise have in-chain. Thus, everything gets shunted into nebulous 'arcs' that are generalized into which century worth of jumps they take place in because I can't be more specific. Its confusing sometimes, but it hasn't changed since I started.

Starter: Eevee, F, Rash (I'm a cheapass)

Skills and Abilities:
Pokeglot(600pts) (600)

Gear:

Bicycle(50pts) (900)
Laptop(100pts) (1000)

Flaws: Screw that, I've got enough trouble with Orre.

So. I had plans...then Orre. Yeah. Just to add a pseudo-plotline, I'm going to say that Cipher shows up once more under Ardos's lead, creating Shadow Pokemon once again, and culminating in the creation of XD002 - Shadow Giratina. Ardos is smart enough to attack Krane's lab first this time, but he only sends a strike force that's weak because plot. I show up in the middle of the attack, grab an Eevee, and wreck shit. The lab sets up to protect themselves and gives me the Snag Machine in hopes of replicating Michael's success, and ADVENTURE happens!

Eventually, after I beat the shit out of Cipher, I call in the favor the purified Giratina owes me, and call upon Celebi and Shaymin to seed Orre with green and growing things, and Lugia to call rain upon the region to let them grow. Orre is made not a hellhole, but a paradise.

Final team: Espeon, plus whatever I can end up finding.

As someone who's new to this, being a Human who's afraid of pokemon to an actual pokemon is kinda odd. I mean I got over my fear and there's no team rocket. So I have a few burning questions about all this.

So, I was given a choice of Pokemon for my PokeForm and I went with Charmander. I owned Pokemon Red, and my starter for that game was Charmander. It was also the only Pokemon I had in last Jump. So while I'm a Pokemon, and finally I can hold a real conversation with Alex. I've been informed that I'm a defective Charmander. Only having three moves. At least I don't need moves for physical stuff.

It wasn't long before we started getting bullied by Team Meanie. They loved to pick on us. They kept trying steal our stuff, what bunch of assholes. Despite being defective I sure can keep up with the best, it was like I was in perfect harmony with my body. Also I noticed a bond with Alex, like we were tied together in a way that we were one.

For most part we explored, after doing main story. Alex and me evolved into Charizards. Something that Alex never got to do before. I'm also first one to admit I never pick up romantic clues, until it's painfully obvious. Who knew that alex would pounce and lay a big fat one on the snout?

I thought I was unlucky in romance as I was in Jump. We never did find a lot of items. Just some ribbons. I guess that's alright. It was fun just exploring, and battling. After 10 years of being a Pokemon, I think I'm about to have my answers answered.

You caught Darkrai with a master ball.

While having no Pokemon.

Legendaries are kinda scary. It strikes me that the most likely result of this plan is that, with its high Speed, Darkrai attacks you first and probably one-shots you, banishing you home before you accomplish any of your plans.

Let me put it this way. Given everything you know about the Pokemon universe, what percentage chance would you say that your plan has of succeeding perfectly? Would you be willing to roll to see if it works?

I got Aura in PMD, though, by virtue of being a Riolu. And Hyperkinesis. My reaction time shot way up in that jump. It was actually really cool, because I could tell the very stark and obvious difference immediately, and I didn't even have new memories to muck around with the realization.

Summoning is my usual 'combat style'. I have magic that lets me teleport 'minions' and 'objects' to me (Kirby's Royal Magic), so I can basically conjure up robot armies (provided that I've built them in advance).

If I'm seriously fighting, that's basically how I do it; I summon Bolos and various auxiliaries into the positions they request, enhancing their tactical mobility while staying out of the front lines (usually because things that I fight seriously against are things that pose an actual threat to me).

All the rest of my techniques, powerful though they are, more or less constitute "not fighting seriously". Serious opponents are Kaiju-level threats that need to be hit with Kaiju-level firepower; anything less I can easily subdue via a variety of lesser means, which I play around with at whim.

Ok using the omniscience build you guys helped me with as well as various rumor spreading and charisma buffs feeding faith power to me as a god I am about to jump dresden. Once there I plan on making my own version of the archive, binding all the worlds knowledge into one book similar to the book of sands. textbook sized.

Plenty of things.

It could be using my bow, it could be using my Ruyi Jingu Bang, it could be swording things up, it could be martial arts, it could be using pistols or my buster cannons, it could be a metric shitton of magic, it could be scheming!

Different situations call for different actions. I like to think of my fighting style as "grab bag". In the sense that I'll have more tricks than the other guy.

In our FINAL, true form? Fusion. Not out of choice necessarily; at that point we're a massive glitch in reality larger than some landmasses with tentacles, eyes and fists forming and disappearing in midair in a vaguely kaleidoscopic pattern, bathed in lilac-white fire and an information-component playing havoc with the very fabric of reality itself. At which point ability usage starts becoming...very esoteric.

Strangely enough? Our human form's combat style is the basic sword and board, honed through millennia of experience.

Except the "board" is an incredibly buffed portal, and the "sword" is an extendable blade onna stick involving components like the sword Galaxia, the Tisiphone Edge, the Scarlet Devil's Sister's Lance and the Lance of Longinus. Basically, we're wielding weapons of mass destruction Link-style

When unarmed and in human form, we default to wrestling. Mainly lucha libre, but with elements of jujitsu, systema, pankration and judo thrown in for flexibility

For my Party Jumper Van build: nerve strikes if I'm being non-lethal, yelling if I am being lethal. Exploud could kill a man casually by yelling (since they can make earthquakes by sound alone) and thanks to PMD I can too. Not to mention the Thu'um. Also sound is really hard to block.

I'm not going to lie: I don't think shoggoth form would stand up to the true heavyweights in DF. Then again the true heavyweights never show up personally when they can get their minions to slow you down and cripple you, to set up forcing you to come onto their turf where your powers are weakened.

Where'd you get immunity to mind magic from? Some DF mental whammies are based around the human mind recoiling in horror from looking at something explicitly eldritch. Nemesis, the probably BBEG, is a viral consciousness that can hijack the minds of things which normally cannot have their minds hijacked, like fallen angels (or at least their hosts) and Winter Sidhe

Using hybrid from smite to channel my multiple sources of wind magic through my weapons, meaning they fly around at mach speeds. My personal combat form is some bizzare combination of shadows wind and lighting that makes me hella fast. All my secondary weapons are enchanted to explode with a ton of power all at once and then discarded in a technique involving requip and quickdraw talents. I can activate my boots of blinding speed plus my nonsight based senses to fight at utterly rediculous speeds. My primary weapon is just a sword enchanted to be magicaly sharp and destructive without ever running out. Modify my own movement with the hybrid and wind powers mentioned up earlier plus enchanted to all hell armor designed to not restrict movement. Overall, a blindingly fast fucker. If someone really pisses me off I pull out the black lance, which is a mage spell designed to go through magic resistance.

I seriously doubt a Shoggoth is going to care about seeing eldritch horrors. This is explicitly a post-Lovecraft inhuman abomination, who has seen far worse. When it sees another horror through its dozens of spontaneously forming and melting eyes, it mutters "Tekeli-li" in seventeen voices, and the horror notes it as a rival, not mere prey.

Kirby has a hellishly useful perk giving a COMPLETE immunity to mind control.

Immunity to "recoiling in horror"... Pretty sure there is something for that in at least 1/4 of the jumps. Can't name any right away... Anyone?

So, I was thinking while I was watching Fairy Tail. The Guild kinda falls apart during the 7-year timeskip. What with the Guildmaster and all the big-name Wizards being in stasis, and presumed dead.

What if the Jumper purposely doesn't go to Tenrou Island? For the purpose of keeping the Guild together, and getting everyone working/training.

>> No.38314001

>>38313852
I was thinking more that-the shoggoth is still, in the grand scheme of things, a type of sufficiently advanced alien. Specifically a slave race that outlived its masters. And the jump /does/ specifically state you retain a human mind.

To be fair, it's not physically seeing DF horrors that brings the hurt-it's trying to view them on a spiritual level. On the other hand-their mental attacks are VERY good. As in-wizards who have more experience in mind magic, and who specifically prepped to defend against it, than Dresden have been utterly outclassed by their mental whammies as well as their complete immunity to conventional magic. Probably nothing short of, I dunno, the circlet from Adventure Time (it does block the Lich's mind attack, which works in a similar manner) or the Helm of Xorn could tank it; it's implied to be a spiritual sort of corruption.

> trying to view them on a spiritual level

That seems like a bad idea, really; one of the flaws of DF-style magic. But there's a lot of Basilisks in the world, and you generally want protection against that kind of thing, not increased awareness of them.

Speaking personally, I replaced my eyes with quasi-equivalent digital sensors in Transmetropolitan, which lets me run my vision is through a variety of filters and processes before it even reaches my brain. The resultant modification to incoming visual data should be enough to scramble most basilisks, but if necessary, I can switch my visual processing more or less off entirely, falling back on symbolic 'matrix-like' pseudo-visual perception, in addition to my array of nonvisual senses.
