Any jumper here ham up their first appearance or when talking to someone?
I tried to be skeletor as a villain in Power Ranger but it didn't end well for me for some reason.

>> No.41319349

I prefer to go with cryptic passing encounter or full Dynamic Entry.

>> No.41319406

That sounds good anon.

It's from when the Servants are summoned that the Master-Servant pair become hostile. So mostly just before the war begins, though some can be up to a few months before. However, they'll probably wait till they can contact each other in wherever the war is being held before going after you, unless you actively go after them.

You do realize that there's a basis for the ideas posited by the other anons regarding methods artificial Personal Reality production in the the series itself right?

I like to go for the nonchalant encounter while being completely absurd. Like full on hair billowing behind me with no wind about, full on fire and smoke pouring from my eye sockets, and I'm wearing a t-shirt with cargo shorts and crocs while reading the newspaper or something.

I will also answer the door like this. Freaks people out. People will automatically judge me and I'll just go on living my life. I get the newspaper, mow the lawn, BBQ on the back porch, lounge in a pool, tend to my garden, go out to get the mail and so on.

Never actually do anything remotely threatening.

If people ever ask why my heads on fire then I just reply with a question of my own like, "Why are you white?" or "Why do you have red hair?"

>> No.41319481

Nope, I'm just not hammy enough, I realized this quite strongly when making a build for G Gundam. I just couldn't be as hammy as the Gundam Fighters in G Gundam, so I had to go Groupie instead.

>> No.41319509

Welp. Another build.
Starting to wonder if they do anything anymore. We get very few builds per thread as it stands.

So how do I sum this up...

There was:
-A man with a butterfly mask
-A species of alchemical monsters, both humanoid and bestial
-Metallic hexagons that activated weaponry through willpower...
-... and the humans that wield them.

The approach?
Spectatorship. I do not know this story, so I'd like to see how it plays out. However, as always, ensure as few lives are lost as possible.

If you're still around, I've some questions about Servant skills:

How would EX Rank High Speed Divine Words work, or rather differ from Caster's ability?

How would A+++ Rank Mystic Eyes of Distortion differ from Asagami's power?

>> No.41319740

EX rank HSDW? I'd imagine it'd just give you a lot more knowledge as to that type of magic then Medea had, since higher ranks just give more spell info.

Not really sure, it has been a long time since I watched KnK. I guess they'd probably be a good deal stronger at least at that rank.

>> No.41319795

Hmm, I see. I guess I'm just not very clear on what you can achieve with HSDW apart from what Medea demonstrated? Are there any other canon users of it? According to the (notoriously unreliable) wiki HSDW works by basically shouting orders at reality and having the magic respond to you but even then it seems pretty boss.

I'm just not sure how much stronger Eyes would be, given Asagami was able to rip apart a bridge when pushed to her limit and IIRC according to Nasu she could've been much stronger with proper training.

Considering EX Rank Imperial Privilege too but based on the description of it only doing the weird stuff above A rank I'm pretty sure there's not really any point.

That's okay, I don't consider myself very hammy either anon.

I mean, my companions disagree but. I just don't have the confidence, y'know?

I know the trailer you're referring to, but for some reason I thought of Spanish Donte

>> No.41319816

HSDW is basically just the magic system Medea uses. It seems to just be Age of Gods magic system in general, rather then altering reality by shouting, especially since for the most part Medea doesn't even use words. Fairly sure Medea's the only canon user, since Solomon uses Kabbalah or something and Tamamo uses Witchcraft, while any other Caster is post Age of Gods. So uh, Medea's pretty much your only example.

>> No.41319932

Bugger. I...dimly recall Tamamo has an EX rank in her version of magic too at least, and I don't remember anything about Solomon's kabbalah stuff but I'm assuming golems are involved somewhere down the line, somehow. Semiramis springs to mind but she ain't even a proper Caster, she's just a phony exploiting the fact that everybody got her legend wrong.

Dammit Nasu what's the point of having all these awesome wizards if they utterly fail to perform half the time?!

Also I guess that means the wiki's assertion that HSDW is "the power to activate thaumaturgy without the use of Magic Circuits" is utterly ass backwards because that sounds...ridiculously energy efficient. I'm still considering taking an EX rank in it though, just to utterly confuse any Age of the Gods-era Servants I meet.

"Wait...I don't remember you from the Age of the Gods! I was there! I freaking shaped that Age! How the hell do you know more magic than me?!"

You can turn CP into SP, but can you do the reverse? I want to do the Servant summoning a Servant thing but don't have enough CP to get an import, let alone apply Servant-hood to them, but I can change enough of my Servant's build to have the SP to do it if I need to.

Shoot people into ducks even. Or shoot Killing Curses, or add a magic stun effect to your tranqs, or have your whip bind people instantly, or any other spell done through your weapons. Seriously, it's a good perk.

Also there's an add on for that perk that lets you put charges into improving your powers, so you can make any of them better over time... Hello Civ jump, Endless Legend, etc.

Say, I've been thinking about how Hakuno has several possible choices for his/her Servant right? Saber, Archer, Caster...and [punching bag of the week for /jc/]

Are we free to assume which Servant Hakuno summons or will there be a 1d4 roll for which one he/she ends up getting? Come to think of it, will Hakuno's gender need to be rolled too?

>> No.41320229

Honestly, I'm thinking that you'll just replace Hakuno in Extra, since it seems simpler overall. If we don't go that way, we'll probably just go Male/Archer, since I find it endlessly amusing to put EMIYA through more pain and that seems to aggravate him the most, while also giving someone interesting for a jumper to fight.

If you take the 0cp CCC drawback, Hakuno gets Gilgamesh instead. Have fun!

>> No.41320454

Val, I think I shot myself in the foot here. I went through A LOT of trouble to survive the 4th Grail War as a Caster because I really wanted high level magic. I ended up with MAN A+ and HSDW A+ (also Charisma A/A+ Ter Creation A and Item Construction A) so I completely focused on it. I kind of regret it now.

1. There's not much of a point in buying magus perks in KaraNKyoukai or Tsukihime so I'll probably end up with tons of weird meta/harem perks 2. I'm a walking definition of a Sealing Designation: somehow I can 'speak' the Divine Words from the AoG which humans should no longer be capable of... so they'll probably want to figure out how with a nice dissection table 3. I'm by Nasu fiat stronger than 98% of magic users but would still get my ass kicked in by the really spooky monsters if I'd ever step out line or if the Association went full crazy and started pulling out ancient Artifacts/mystic codes...

This might sound stupid but you do know tons about the Nasuverse so how would you personally handle this situation? No retconning my Servant build pls because I still enjoy my magic but rather a way for me to act in those jumps that would not get me in some deep shit. Should I come clean about my AoG magic? Distance myself from all magic-related affairs and live a normal life? Try to disguise HSDW as a special but not too special origin or alignment?

Sorry for bothering you with these questions. Should have considered all of this sooner.

>> No.41320529

Honestly? The safest method is to just not go near the Association at all, and just stay in some out of the way town. In fact, pretty much most eastern countries are great, since the Association is mainly concentrated in Europe/Western places.

If you gotta spend time near/around them just don't use HSDW and pretend you're just some human with a ton of prana but no magical skill. Which isn't too rare, although the amount of prana might be noteworthy. Most magus of worth would be able to tell something's up if not outright realise you're using a different system.

Coming clean about having AoG magic is probably one of the worst things you can do, so uh, don't do that. One way ticket to having the whole Clocktower on your ass.

It's fine, I'm always happy to answer questions to the best of my ability.

>> No.41320642

That's depressing but it's pretty much what I expected. Stupid Association... I would totally help out wherever I could and be really nice. I blame harry potter: Hogwarts tricked me into believing all magic schools are wonderful places but the Association is not really a magic school I guess. Actually they're like the ministry of magic with Umbridge for minister and policies against everything that is remotely out of the ordinary. Lucky that I picked Charisma A+ so I might still bluff myself out of a bad situation if I'm unlucky enough to get involved with the Association abroad for some reason.

I'm also wondering something about origins. Technically I've already been in the Nasuverse with Fate but did that affect my origin somehow? Should I keep my actions in Fate in mind when I decide on my origins in Kara No Kyoukai to make sure they fall in line with how I acted there?

>> No.41320672

The association is a school or at least a school is a part of it, it's just one that is run by people with a great interest in things like the Age of Gods.

You'd get an Origin and Element just by jumping to Fate, same as with any Nasuverse jump. It's just an intrinsic property of the setting. So you can just decide what you want in Fate and have it the same later on. Of course, once you pick your origin it can't really change, unless you pick up that double origin option I guess.

Socially autistic, edgy people then who think the normal way to act is immediate capture, preservation and dissection. I don't mind sharing my AoG magic and I would if I could but just invite me over for tea! No worries though. I could probably live a fairly enjoyable life for away from the Association. I mean, the "Unified Language" guy did it and the UL is way more impressive than the (HS)DW.

I never picked an alignment because I went Servant but I'll have to pick an origin in Kara No Kyoukai anyway. I'm not sure I'd want to but it's free for everyone so it's mandatory. Same for magic circuits... they pretty much force 20 of those on me which would only get in the way unless I go full magus/magecraft and break the canon by trying to combine modern magic with AoG magic. I'd rather stick to my AoG magic so I'll find a way to get rid of those 20 magic circuits somehow.

Generally speaking free things aren't mandatory. Those that are usually specify that.

What would A+ Clairvoyance be like? Given C lets you track fast moving objects within 4km's and the description mentions higher levels might reach precognition and other forms of perception beyond standard eyesight (X-ray vision and so forth) I'd think it would be some sort of Byakugan with Sharingan predictive capabilities, though I don't know if A+ would be enough to 'see' everything around them or just what's within 4km's of their normal field of vision.

Don't want to spoil your fun but precognition, enhanced senses, ... are relatively common perks you can find all over the jumpchain. Why would you spend valuable SP on that?

Death of the Author, from Princess Bride. It's like being a Time Lord, but better, because I'm not bound to the plot the way they are to time. I can feel the point where the plot can change forever, and I can choose whether or not that happens through my actions.

Before, there were times when I was afraid to intervene, because I didn't know what the consequences would be. Would my kindness weaken the hero, causing them to falter in the future? Would my efforts just make things worse? But now, I know when I can safely lend a hand, and when I'm going to derail everything. Or, for that matter, when I'm the only thing that'll keep things from continuing on an irrevocable course to tragedy.

Needless to say, I do a lot of intervening now.

So Alaya is the collective unconsciousness of mankind, specifically the drive for survival. Assuming for a moment that a Jumper manages to distort that drive for survival in a way that would be beneficial for him by 1. cursing/infecting/mutating mankind to trigger a mass extinction at the Jumper's death or 2. actively twisting the minds of people on a planetary scale to subconsciously consider the Jumper's safety and protection vital for their survival...

What would happen then?

No particular reason. I'm a careful person so even as a Jumper I like to consider what I'd do in the worst case scenario possible. In Nasu, that would either Gaia or Alaya going berserk on me so I wanted to think up a back-up safety measure.

Nope, I'm not an edgy murdermonster. There should in fact be no reason whatsoever for Gaia or Alaya to target me. Never hurts to consider the impossible though.

Jump (39) - Kara No Kyoukai

Title "Kara No Kyoukai: the Nasuverse expands"
Theme Sequels/Zelretch-please-tolerate-me

roll//7- Age 21
Gender- Female->Male
July 1998
Ordinary Drop Out

Dual Origins: 'Wanderlust' and 'Identity'(100)
Find Anything(freebie for O D P)
Friend to Everyone(250) (discount for O D P)
Sense Murderer(450)

Infinite supply of Ice cream(1200)

Filthy Red(1000)

I usually stick to what I buy in a jump. Not today. I still have MANA A+ and HSDW A+ from Fate and the 4th Grail War so there is no need to buy magus or bloodline perks here. This leaves me 1200CP for fun things. I enjoyed buying WhatTheHellIsEvenGoingOn?, Sense Murderer and... Proto-Tohno Gland which is 2x as effective in my particular case *cough*. Oh, and infinite Ice cream!

I took 'Wanderlust' and 'Identity' for my Origins because these fit me best. The reason I started jumping was to discover and experience more interesting worlds and 'Wanderlust' exemplifies this, also far less negative than 'World-weary'. 'Identity' is my dual because I do not want to lose myself in the process but stay who I am, me. Those ideas have always been important in my chain and life.

It is sad that I have nowhere to go this jump and cannot share my HSDW or risk a Sealing. I secretly picked Filthy Red to force myself into the world. I am also tempted to find Zelretch and ask him to use his considerable influence to prevent a potential sealing: I am neither evil nor an idealistic do-gooder so he might tolerate me.

Good build? Bad build? Feel free to rate.

Somehow this build is really personal. I blame the soul-searching for Origins. Even anonymous it is awkward but I always post my builds. Next is an Autumn Wizard in Narnia: feel free to shit on my season-fu to get rid of any vicarious embarrassment.

>> No.41324898

I'm a pretty messy jump maker. I take ideas and toss them at the jump most of the time. And hope it sticks. Most of my early jumps where like that. And well. They're more than a little messy. And take forever and a half to properly balance.

My best jumps came from actually following proper jump organization. Super Smash Brothers, and Spyro: Classic.

But mostly I make them based on what inspired me to do them. Like with GW2 I mostly focused on Drawbacks just because that's where most of my inspiration came from.

And most settings would make a good jump. But usually I would run it by the thread AND chat first before anything else. Just to make sure no one has previously claimed it or if they like the idea or not. After all this is a community. And the thread has some very knowledgeable and insightful anons who are willing to help.

>> No.41324948

I start with a setting, usually don't decide to make it until I've got a couple of ideas for a couple of the categories. Often starts with a thought like 'well that'd be a good drawback'.

Intro and any other body text comes last. Backgrounds and Perks sometimes pop up at the same time. I usually have ideas for a few perks/items right away, choose backgrounds that seem to make the most sense to me given the setting and I'll generally list down a lot of perk titles that I'm not entirely sure what they'll do. I then sort them, take them out or add new ones depending on what's needed in terms of balance for a given background/if there's some redundancy or bad ideas.

Eventually I'll have a skeleton of backgrounds, perk titles and usually a couple of items and drawbacks. Perk titles become full perks with text after I've thought about it and priced them accordingly, sometimes it's obvious what they do straight away, other times stuff needs tweaking to be worth as much as other things of equivalent cost.

I usually do Items and Drawbacks last as they're arguably harder in most cases (although you need fewer of them). Drawbacks need to be difficult to deal with no matter what a jumper has already been through and it's difficult to keep them fresh and appropriately severe. Items are often difficult as you sometimes have to give them weird qualities to be worth the CP as they're often grabbable in universe.

Setting doesn't really matter as long as you know it well enough to do it justice. Fact is that great jumps can be made out of shitty settings and terrible ones can be made out of really good ones.

>> No.41325192

I'll generally write things as they go on, whatever I'm motivated to do at the moment. I'll generally get a framework going first though, then do perks and items. They're harder to do than drawbacks, which is eerily easy for me.

Backgrounds always come first as part of the framework; I like to keep a theme. Things need to make sense for what they do, and as long as I have that framework it's kind of easier to make stuff up with it. But more or less none of it comes out in any particular order.

>How to you decide if a setting will make a good jump in the first place?
I decide it by how interesting it might be. Swat Kats, Binbougami, Ace Combat, Stargate... they have a lot of options, they all bring some kind of interesting tidbit to the chain, and they all have enough wiggle room that people can do just about whatever. If I feel people will have fun in it, I'll go for that. I do tend to have exceptions, though: Squirrel and Hedgehog was me trolling the shit out of everyone, and F.E.A.R. I just kind of wanted to see everyone suffer. So while I do try to work for people mostly, I get the occasional personal whim. Even then, as I said in the last thread I never think about how it might work with my build. If I build ANY jump with any intent of personally benefiting, I feel that's a fuck-up on my end.

I've been tempted to do a 'Nerf' vacation jump where it's nerf gun fights or water balloons, with the ability to import your items as nerf variants, but I'm pretty sure I'd get my ass kicked.

Really, the important thing for me is how a setting can contribute to the story of a jumper. I like hearing plans, I like hearing stories and 'what-ifs', I like hearing the little things or the grand schemes. And if a jump of mine leaves an impact on a jumper, then that's a job well done for me.

Pic slightly related.

>> No.41325209

Biological/organic life almost always revolves around sustaining and repairing (individual cells). That's why the opposite of life is usually decay or poison... basically something that destroys or damages individual life. Artificial life is very much like biological life in that it involves or needs an energy source to sustain and repair itself.

So I'd either go for something that speeds up instead of rejecting entropy or exists completely outside of it. I know this is stupid brotier science so don't hurt my feelings.

Do not that it's generally accepted that you either do pokemon first or never do it at all. This because QS made it so the body mod and warehouse are given as a reward for completing your first jump. Even though we all ignore what QS would rule towards the end, the pokemon jump was still designed under the belief that you only have access to what you bought there.

You could probably get away with doing it later though unless you insist on abusing dozens of magic and science perks to enslave pokemon, catch all legendaries and other edgy shit. That would cause a mighty shitstorm.

>acting like it's only one person who hates updates.

Why do you think I never post builds? As soon as I try my shit gets nerfed.

>> No.41325691

First off, I only start with a setting I know and love. It's just too much work to start with something I don't care about. From there, I think about why I liked it so much. What makes it special and fun? Once I've got that in mind, everything I design will be about trying to present the setting in a way that gets that across.

From there, my first step is backgrounds. Each background is usually based around a couple of characters from the work, and I try to make them represent a different approach to the world. Drop-in usually is either designed to fit a role that doesn't exist, a character who is kind of an oddball, or the players themselves - so they get the meta abilities more often than not. The most important thing is to make a theme - nobody likes the Drop-In who's a catch-all of things you can't fit elsewhere.

From there, I generally go in order of perks, companions, drawbacks, and items. Since perks are the most tied to backgrounds, the important thing is to make them fit the playstyle or character each background represents, while still representative of the unique aspects of the setting. The most important thing, though, is not to just duplicate the background. Backgrounds aren't just discounts - they offer skills and training innately, so doubling up cheapens that effect. It also forces people to be locked into one playstyle instead of being a hybrid.

Comparatively, items and drawbacks are usually much easier. For items, the big complication is how to offer something the Jumper can't just grab. Some unique feature generally helps, and for consumables a periodic refresh makes then worth buying.

>> No.41325716

Drawbacks, on the other hand, are usually from me taking things that are serious complications that people in-setting had to deal with, or figure out what would be really bad to have to deal with in the setting, and then offering points for having to suffer through them. The biggest challenge there is pricing - an eternal pain in the ass is usually 100, while 200s are a regular serious threat or constant misery, and 300s have to put the Jumper in critical danger on a regular basis. I try to avoid ones that won't be interesting to deal with, though.

Finally, I go over it and flesh it out. That's easily the hardest part, because I want to make sure I have a good voice for the setting. If everyone in the setting talks in flowery language, slang and sarcasm won't fit at all. It's here that I usually do a bit of balancing. My two rules are "the player can never start off stronger than the main characters end up when the story is over," and "every option must be a viable choice." I might not ever pick it, but if nobody would, it's a failure and should be replaced.

Finally, I do my proofreading, format it for PDF, and upload it.

Speaking of Philosopher Stones, I have to questions. What's the standard policy for making those other than Mass-Murder on Mars? I can think of a few ideas, not least of which is a soul factory which manufactures semi-intelligent lifeforms just sentient enough that they have a "soul", which are then feed into a grinder to become Sanguine Stars and Philosopher Stones.
Second, whats the best way to avoid being corrupted by those things considering the effects of those things on the minds of their users exhibited in canon?

It was a car accident this time, the lady was pregnant like near middle the pregnancy. Too far along to not care, not far along to survive outside the womb. So it was an experimental technology, and they somehow transferred Major's Ghost to a cyborg body.

I made two jumps and each of those about a short, enjoyable setting. In fact each book was so short that I created half the jump while reading. It all came very naturally.

Then it all went south. I left the next two jumps in a very early draft to work on a setting I suddenly took an interest in (mistake #1). The setting was special and so I figured the jump should be special too (mistake #2). I decided to make a beautiful imaged jump (mistake #3).

Here is the thing about imaged jumps. On one hand they are incredibly fun and easy to make: instead of immediatly writing everything down, you can think about the jump while you slowly design it and come up with something better than you normally would. On the other hand it is all or nothing: you cannot quickly finish up an imaged jump halfway through by reverting to a non-imaged format for the last few pages.

Long story short, I had a great time for about 2-3 days when I finished about 85% of the jump. Then something strange happened, I honestly have no idea what (mistake #4), and I have not touched the jump in 2-3 weeks. My computer is running 24/7, filling my bedroom with a ghastly green light and the soft grinding noise of a wind turbine, so I do not forget about it. I am also slowly becoming insane (mistake #5) and am even having nightmares about those final 1.5 pages, yet only 15% of the jump if you consider all the general work from images and background colours to design and font that I have done already. Now I am too ashamed to reveal my trip but I have accepted my fate which is to monitor and read these threads like a lurking ghost fueled by remorse and guilt (mistake #7).


>> No.41326389

The first thing I start with when making a jump, aside from the setting, is the outline. I'll write down the titles for everything I want to include then after that I start working out ideas for what should be included.

My primary resource will always be the wiki but I'll also try to go through either the show or the game that I'm making a jump out of to get some ideas.

I pretty much always start with origins since they dictate what items and perks will offered, however I switch between perks, items, drawbacks and other things as I come up with ideas for them. The intro is typically the very last thing I write.

When it's time to add graphics to a jump, I simply order the pages in the most efficient way possible then start imaging a design. I tend to change a lot of things as I go along, I'll notice that something doesn't look right in the image or and idea turns out ugly.

>> No.41326446

Okay, save state removed. Sorry about that, everyone.

>> No.41326458

Decide the story, split it up into sections. Make lots of notes and jot down such inspirations as may happen while I'm doing it.

Start filling in the sections. Do whatever interests me during that session. I've seen a few people complaining about being stuck on a section and really looking forward to the next one they have to write. It really confused me, because why not go do that one? chances are you'll have a few ideas while you are writing, and a chance to think about the problem bit wont hurt.

> How to you decide if a setting will make a good jump in the first place?

If it interests you, it automatically makes it a good setting. Weird? something nobody knows exists? good. Variety is best. Don't be afraid to do things a little differently when writing as well. Forcing yourself to stick to the 'established' jump format when things would work better a bit differently is just going to end with a jump you aren't going to be happy with.

>> No.41326485

First I try to gather as much info on the lore as possible. That helps give you ideas on Origins, Perks and the like.

Then you get a few critiques about stuff, and send it out. I generally don't make jumps about things I'm not super hyped for, otherwise your interest and commitment to it might wane.

And for pictures, I beg Rising to do it. Seriously, we all worked on Kingsman, but he did all the picture work. Guy's great at it.

Deplorable Word from Narnia. You perform a ritual and speak the word, then all living things from flowers to elderly women on the planet die except for you. The jump version does warn that it may not work against certain magical or immortal beings and that it can only be used once per jump.

Anyway, is there a non-edgy use for it? Can you think of any location or time in any jump when it could actually be useful? It sounds too murderish for me but it's still a unique item so if it could ever be used for a purpose or with good reason...

>> No.41327067

Because you may already have bending from TLA but you're still making an entirely new build for LOK. It doesn't take into account any of your existing abilities during the time your making your build, you have to gain a whole new set of bending abilities and memories, and Lavabending, for example, is genetic, it'd be impossible for you to learn it normally without taking all new bending abilities.

Great Fairy's Grace(300) - What kind of sick FUCK!? AAGHK!! Alright. In times of great need..but nothing else.

Magic Bottles (free) - I could do with some nice water bottles, I wonder if I can bottle lava...Probably not worth it to test.
Basic Gear(100) - Because Bullets aren't cheap or infinite. Hell, I can't buy 'em here as far as I know.
Lense of Truth(100) - I need to not be afraid of ghosts, of course.
Mask of Stone(100) - If I can keep the mooks off my back, it should be simple enough to reserve my ammo for the elites.

Most of what I'm doing here is riding atop my ol' Tennessee stud (Jack a' Spades) and moving to fight evil across the land, saving my silver bullets for the day I come across the lord of all evil..I say that but really I'm just wandering and seeing the sights, also keeping the mask on until I see a boss then running or shooting it in the obvious weak point.

Ravenloft is an interesting place - if you keep your head down, don't do anything major, and just focus on the everyday struggle of survival, you'll have a crappy ten years with a low probability of your town being wiped out by a random wandering horror. (If it does, then you might want to pass your fort save to successfully die. That's an actual thing in Ravenloft. A player in a game I know of died before even encountering the rest of the party, but fortunately passed his fort save, and was allowed to die.)

On the other hand, if you try to be a hero, or gain power, or stand out, you'll draw... attention. And then, the temptations start getting sent your way, to turn you into something that Ravenloft can keep, and if they aren't working, then they'll get alternated between temptations, and outright attempts at killing you - either by sending bad guys against you, or just the world itself deciding that it got up on the wrong side of the bed today, and it's your turn to *SPIKED PIT TRAP!* ouch...

>How to you decide if a setting will make a good jump in the first place?
Honestly I pick based on what settings I like, and generally what I'm feeling up for. It's all motivation based to get it done.

Origins and Perks come at the same time, since the origins (even drop in) are themed after particular characters or roles so the perks usually come at the same time. The intro generally comes along as I double check the setting somehow, like playing through the whole game again or reading summaries.

Honestly my stupid level of throughness makes me really slow to making things

>> No.41328425

How does the Slice of Life jump work? It says 'store your powers', 'body is temporarily replaced", "knowledge ... is retained".

I get that various superpowers are sealed for the jump, but what about various mental or social boosts. Like my perk granted Eidetic memory, for example. Or perk granted knowledge that I might not have practiced.

There's also no mention of the Warehouse. Is that to be considered a power?

And it's usually considered okay to toggle your perks between Jumps, right?

I can imagine an eternal Winter (snowy hell) and an eternal Summer (hot hell) but an eternal Spring (do flowers keep blooming?) or an eternal Autumn (do the trees keep refreshing their dying leaves?) not so much...

Not exactly. She is "descended from a jinn" and "has some giantish blood", but that doesn't mean that her parents were a Jinn and a Giant. Mr. Beaver also seems to think that she's descended from Lilith, Adam's first wife, and she certainly does not qualify as a "daughter of Eve".

She's a descendant of hundreds of generations of the Kings and Queens of Charn, and the reader is never actually told exactly WHERE those originally came from. I'm ruling that they're at least as human as the Dunedain or Melniboneans.

>Spring (do flowers keep blooming?) or an eternal Autumn (do the trees keep refreshing their dying leaves?)

Yes and yes.

>Could you tell me what you had in mind for them?

Autumn is harvest time, bounty, hard work followed by hard celebration. But it's also fear, lengthening nights, the cold wind blowing through your hair, the dread of the winter to come. It's the death of the old year to make room for the new.

Spring is rain, rebirth, growth, rain and melting snow. It's hope, it's survival, it's new life arising and slumbering life awakening, it's the smell of fresh blooming flowers and thawing earth.

Lovecraft is one of the safest settings out there. It's even safer if you surround yourself with white people and stick to big (white) cities in white countries, and you can thank his racism for that.

The Elder Gods will NOT steal you away. Cthulhu will NOT awaken just to get you. Heretic Cultists will NOT travel all the way from the middle-east to London to involve you in whatever it is they do.

I like the way you worded that. That's basically how Autumn and Spring are most often presented and I love it. My question was mostly on the technical aspect of the magic though. Like how Winter would be ice and snow for offensive magical purposes (the whole spikes and blasts of ice thing), I'd like to know what that would be for Summer, Spring and Autumn. Basically, what do we get to blast or shoot with those if we find ourselves in a sudden dangerous situation?

I've always loved Autumn because it's a melancholic but pleasant season. It's hard to explain. Unfortunatly, I doubt people would appreciate eternal Autumn or 'Autumn powers'. They'd rather see me bring Spring and maybe even Summer.

Dark Powers are a plot device and are as powerful as they need to be. Both sides of this argument are dopey.

Arguably they shouldn't be given priority in the chain by being able to keep you in Ravenloft when there are other plot device entities in other settings who also may have issue with you leaving who can't force you to stay but arguing about the exact power of Dark Powers compared to anything else from other settings is fucking retarded as the values aren't fixed.

The rules specify that I must reach one million subscribers by the end of my Jump, and I can't:

1. Hack YouTube's servers to artificially inflate my subscriber count, or
2. Sign up fake accounts.

Plan A was to do things fair and square, produce lots of high-quality content (with a light sprinkling of Dark Side memetic engineering) and get millions of people to CHOOSE to sign up.

But then I saw the -800 CP "SOPAcalypse" drawback, and I couldn't resist the challenge. The drawback specifies "Starting at the beginning of 2013, you will have to fight an incredible uphill legal battle to get SOPA repealed,". I'm curious whether that sentence is meant to be descriptive or prescriptive, because while I certainly COULD "fight an incredible uphill legal battle", it would probably be better for everyone involved if I just took over the world.
I've got a GDP that's several orders of magnitude greater than the rest of the world put together, plus a whole bunch of charisma, political, scheming, administrative perks- plus a few I'm picking up from this Jump.

Like many Jumpers, I keep forgetting that I'm a Multi-Gazillionaire. I usually leave the handling of my colossal fortunes and various shell corporations to one or more of my companions until the time is right. In this case, I'll be massively, but secretly, invested in telecommunications, infosec, renewable energy, robotics, etc...

Along with my day job as not-Hank-Green, I plan to spend the first couple of years quietly setting up a world wide Darknet (satellites, wifi hotspots, autonomous repair drones, etc.) much of which will be protected by cloaking devices, out of phase with our dimension, and so forth.

On December 18, 2012, a cryptic countdown ad campaign comes out of nowhere. On Christmas Day, it goes live. Every human being on the planet will receive a way-past-next-generation semi-sentient computing device. I'm thinking of calling them "Lares", after the Roman household guardian spirits, because my first choice (daemon) would have turned too many people off.

In their default form, these Lares would be a floating orb roughly the size and shape of a basketball, covered in comforting-looking blinking lights, but capable of morphing into a laptop, a beetle-shaped hexapod, an armband, or a bunch of other configurations. It's not just a computer, but a fully-featured personal assistant, tutor, bodyguard (though it won't help you initiate violence against anyone else), health consultant, and, hopefully, friend. Its personality matrix is set to adapt to yours... and hopefully, through the Power of Friendship (and applied psychology) to subtly influence you into being a better (and smarter, wiser, fitter, etc.) person.

>> No.41330619

The ones given to children will also be extended a substantial line of credit (paid for out of my obscenely deep Money Bin) to be spent on that child's behalf as the Lares judges it necessary. Along with all the new infrastructure I'm going to be building (and helping other to build) I will at the very least ensure that no child will ever have to grow up in poverty ever again. Ditto for health- its medical scanners won't just let you know if you've got ringworm, it will offer to vaporize them for you. It won't just warn you not to drink the river water, it will purify you a glass of water and serve it to you with ice cubes.

You can permanently dismiss your Lares if you're really, really sure, and it will leave with no hard feelings, but no one else can do it for you. Trying to coerce someone into giving up their Lares against their will is not going to go well for the blackmailer. Oppressive governments and abusive parents who hope to isolate their children from the world are flat out of luck.

(Oh, and the process of initializing your Lares also "just happens" create a new YouTube account that's automatically subscribed to my channel. There will be an opportunity to opt out, but I suspect at least a couple billion people will stick with it. But this is mostly an afterthought at this point. If even that is against the rules, I'm pretty sure I'll be long past a million anyway).

Since they're going to contain all sorts of super-duper future tech with all sorts of potential unethical applications, they've also been designed to be tamper-proof black boxes. The first NSA lab that tries to take one apart is getting teleported to Ganymede, and will remain there until they promise not to do it again. Or run out of air and water, whatever comes first.

And just for kicks, I'll administer all this from my giant Fortress of Joy located precisely on the Geographical North Pole. While eating popcorn and watching everyone's reactions.

Then the plant zombie that bit your head plants a seed in you, and it grows in your brain, and you become another plant zombie. Technically still alive and concious until your body rots away as fertilizer, but unable to control your body, and in agony until you finally die.

The funny part on that, is that the plant zombie managed to make it's attack in a _surprise_ round, because the player in question botched his spot check as it shambled up behind him. It was technically one of the least dangerous things they encountered during that whole campaign.

We're talking about her sister. Glory Girl has an aura that amplifies emotions towards her to be the best for the situation she's in. Trying to intimidate someone, it goes to fear, just hanging out it's affection, inspiring someone it goes to admiration and respect. Panacea grew up with that, though her most formative years. It had a bit of an effect on her feelings for Victoria. It's not actually incest, they're not biologically related. Doesn't change the fact that Vicky isn't gay, though.

I woke up in an unfamiliar bed in an unfamiliar room in- I glanced out the window and confirmed that it's an unfamiliar view- an unfamiliar town.

That's mostly to be expected, however. After a Jump it always took a few minutes for everything to settle in, and I idly waved a hand at the wall to open an entrance to the Warehouse. I'd spend a few minutes going over news sites with an actual secure internet connection. It wasn't that there was always an Illuminati, just that there was usually an Illuminati.

Dragging myself out of bed was harder than it usually was. Strictly speaking, I hadn't needed to for a long time, but I enjoyed the experience never the less. Rubbing my eyes, I blearily walked through the portal, and then promptly fell backwards when I rebounded off the wall.

The wall without a portal.

I narrowed my eyes, now much more awake. Tried to open a portal again.



The next hour was spent mechanically going through the morning routine I'd kept here. Examining my teeth revealed that even the body tune up I'd picked up long ago wasn't working. It was a small thing, but I'd grown accustomed to being kept clean. It was surreal to actually need to brush my teeth after so long.

I also became progressively more and more aware of how limited my perception seemed. The sluggishness of my body. How slow my mind seemed. What had I done to myself when I'd Jumped here?

Jumping was the de facto name for the process. Suspended in roiling potential, looking upon bastions of stability. Strange titles, simple ideas broadcast to me. Launching myself at a realm, fitting myself into strange containers with stranger expressions and adding a little of the realm into myself as a prize. I could push the limits, but always paid the price.

I hadn't pushed the limits.

I was paying a price anyways.

I gripped the sink, leaning in to examine my face in the mirror.

Anti-spiral seems like more of an exception, maybe because he's been around so long and people eased into him being as he is or something, I don't know. It feels like most new people who act 'evil' or 'less than pure white morality' get a lot of guff from other posters.

At the risk of drama.

I personally feel that the primary concern isn't whether someone's 'good' or 'evil' (because let's face it, there's ALWAYS going to be a debate on whether human morals are applicable after a certain period of time), but the honesty of their actions.

Like, do you wanna baby eat people? You're an asshole, but if that's your deal then have at it. Hell, back in the day the flavor of the month was creating Philo Stone power generators. So there's hardly a case of power suddenly making people evil. If the person was that way from the start, then it is what it is.

Primarily, the issue is doing said actions while trying to play it off as something else. Granted, there is something to be said for if people are trying to get 'in-character' so to speak, but as we've seen here it seems to trip people when they try to justify said actions under a veil of justice or righteousness. Which while understandable, is something of a loaded issue to begin with because what one person sees as justice, another may see as evil. A consensus may be reached most times (hell, we have laws in countries that are proof to that), but you will always have differences.

tl;dr Let's stop bitching and let's just talk about things. Differences are gonna be different.

Mainly cause it's kind of a cliche or just straight-up uninventive for even the smallest bit of power after a few jumps to make them feel like they can do whatever they want
and since there's no real way of enforcing "but if you did this the setting would probably end up killing you" it just becomes "and then I ate everyone"
With Anti-spiral and Val they've gotten to the point where it's sort of their schtick and they've been grandfathered into it being okay
With new anons it's just "so you go mad with power and want to eat everything. big woop"
It'd be like posting about trying to seduce and waifu every female lead or character they encounter, just with murder instead of sex
it helps I like 'em as users and people so

Not sure if I would call what I'm doing is unique, but I like to think being able to punch most of my problems and resolve them without actually inflicting any physical harm... except when I do. And it will be spectacular.

You know the common statement that nobody in reality truly thinks of themselves as a villain? Look at it that way. I don't consider myself a villain because I see and agree with the logic in what I do.

See >>41336113
For my response to that kind of feeling. Better to live and let live instead of being so, I'm not sure what to call it, over the way people act during their jumps.

Sounds good to me. Let's talk about something else.

SO, do you guys have context sensitive buttons?

I'd thing it's fairly damn close if I dump everything into it, i'll have you know. Spiral energy and tao magic can be a scary combo. Also i've learned the secret of ranged punching.

I don't modify settings, instead choosing to let things play out unless something absolutely involves me. My companions and I are of equal mind (and to fit our narrative) that non intervention policies are generally the best means to ensure that we survive.

Quickest? Pretty much any durability perk from a superhero or shonen jump, e.g. Superhuman Durability from DC. The real trick is finding a low-power jump that does that. DC ain't one of those.

You might want to consider that you're the one considering whether to murder a pair of teenagers for the crime of finding themselves in a shitty universe like Worm.

Or, I dunno, you could just come up with a peaceful solution. Might take a mid-tier jumper... what, an hour, tops?

We all know lots of settings have secret societies. Did you join any of them?

>> No.41337282

Meh, we already reached the end of that conversation further on down anon. Though really I wonder if I should've just gave in and gone completely evil and if I wouldn't have to deal with this kind of thing if I did that instead of trying to have my jumper act as I feel would be ideal or 'reasonable. Not how I act in real life of course, in real life I'm a pacifist doormat.

You know, I don't think I really have. I guess because most secret societies are kinda, well, very controlling of their membership.

Only when forced into it. I took part in the fights in Killing Bites and Sekirei. Really, secret societies just aren't my style.

You know, you could try to find a solution to that problem by taking advantage of the jump allowing you to start as a member of an established team. Choose the Hero origin, and it's totally permissible to have a history as a member of New Wave. From there you could be a teenager/young 20-something and potentially give Panny someone to lean on that she's not incestuously crushing on.

Or, more helpful but potentially changing things too much to be acceptable, you could pay to have the max age of 30, which would mean you would have been around 20 when New Wave defeated Pan's father and adopted her. You would totally have been old enough to have potentially adopted her and let her grow up with a parent who actually loved her. Like I said though, this might be pushing the effect your origin could have on the story a liiiiitle too far.

About the quickest I can think of is just to hand Panacea the following letter and teleport away once she's read it: "Dear Amelia, prolonged exposure during puberty to emotion amplification auras can have long-term effects. Here's Doctor Yamada's phone number, she's an excellent therapist. Kind regards, Grey Lantern 2814."

An even lazier GL might just leave the message on her answering machine or something, but this is Worm and I wouldn't trust the phone not to spontaneously develop a flat battery or something.

KOTOR Anon, does Peak Human Condition in Teen Titans when it mentions endurance mean just endurance or endurance and stamina or just stamina? You were smart enough to make the distinction between agility, speed, and reflexes but that only made me wonder if the endurance thing was intentional and only what it seems to be but not typically what it is referred to as.

When I went to Mob, I took up Godfather, but I was a member of the FBI. I decided to fluff my "Gang," in future Jumps as a sort of Paranormal Response Bureau. Regardless of how small (sometimes only three to four members), I always have a small secret society to work with in each Jump.

I'll prolly toss in my Bastion Build now that I'm here.

Legend of Zelda...Well, I got to admit. Was pretty exciting watching Ganon start trying to take over Hyrule between Kid link and Adult Link, but also a lot of creatures
and good people being attacked. Tried my best to protect the individual towns, but hell, I ain't a hero. I'm glad Link came back, and I am sure as hell glad I didn't have to
call out the Great Fairy for anything yet.

Yamada gets a lot of praise for being the only actual therapist in the story, but she never accomplishes anything. She interviews Skitter, who refuses to change, and GU, who tells her that she's already done with what she was doing. Her actual accomplishments and contributions at any observable scale measure a fat fucking zero.

Waste of points. At least endowed can be used to scare off predators.
