So I'm an idiot who literally left out the most important part of a perk in the Anima jump, and made a 600 CP perk the equivalent of a 100 CP racial buy. Would anyone's build break if I were to buff the Seeker of Names perk to the proper level? AKA: "You don't have to fulfil the pact requirements for summoning." instead of just "You can tell names (AKA, a minor ability from one of the races)" and "You know a lot of names" (AKA you have a competent Occultism skill)?

Jumpers, tell me about your dragons!

In Dragonlance, I ended up picking up a Gold Dragon named Ninareth, who despite being the youngest of us insisted she was the wisest and most all-knowing. She also insisted on us using her back for transportation all the time even if we had other ways, and once tried to be Santa one night.

After going through A Thousand Years of Peace in Phantasia, she ended up becoming a Great Wyrm through the entire scenario since she was my primary helper. She mellowed out and matured after years of us trying to keep the world from blowing itself up, and while I became more jaded, she seemed to look at the world from a brighter perspective. For the life of me, I have no idea how.

Her cooking has also always been awful. Always. We make excuses to leave when it's her turn to cook. Sometimes, I don't escape in time. I regret this.

Why do you think I've managed to go 41 jumps without blowing up a planet? My companions have been reining me in considerably for this chain. I also avoid going all out whenever possible.

Martel, Vita, Rion, and Ninareth are basically a four-woman team in keeping me from acting like a moron despite the intelligence boosts.

Also they're really cute and it's hard to say no to them.

>If you picked a form besides human, you can swap back and forth between it and your original form at will. If you picked human, you gain a second human form
that looks entirely normal. Physical changes can be applied to both forms or only one.
So does this mean that if I chose human, I can choose what this alternate form looks like and effectively turn it into a disguise (make it look nothing like me)? Do I have total control over its creation?

Well obviously Drop In would take after Dorothy. With semi-meta options probably.

You left out the Primordial Vampire's ability to turn large numbers of slave vampires en masse. And while I'm sure you're tired of hearing this, Primordial Frankenstein still seems kinda subpar compared to the other capstones. Mostly because they don't have any way to deal with magic or weird spiritual shit the way everything else in the jump does.

Otherwise? Excellent jump.

Probably not a lot. Fanwank something. Probably be more "sinister" or something, since it's Secrets instead of Mystery and the glimpse inside of it gave that feel.

I've talked a lot about my Dragon Robot turned Armored Suit turned Mass Murderer of my old chain. But I finally have a new dragon stories thanks to Yamato and my Coordinator enjoying my continued suffering. Yes, I'm still a Companion, send help.

Yamato decided he wanted more magic, adventure, but most of all, dragons. So the Coordinator presented him with Forgotten Realms. Yamato was all but bouncing with excitement. So, we picked up skills and classes and assorted goodies and immediately set off in the direction of Dragons.

Apparently, the direction of Dragons includes getting involved with dragon hunters trying to bring down a Black Great Wurm, cultists attempting to breed the perfect new race of Half-Dragons, and myself personally becoming mother to an entire clutch of Pseudodragons.

On the plus side, the Pseudodragons are cute and there's a lovely redheaded Half-Dragon that's joined out little group. She's a real firecracker. HAHAHAHAHA! I swear to god if I have to smell burned dog hair in the morning ONE MORE TIME YAMATO I'm making both of you sleep in the Warehouse!

It's based mostly on the movie by default, because that's what everyone knows, with a 0 CP drawback to go to either the books, or an alternate version like The Wiz.

Drop-in is obviously Dorothy, perks for finding allies and magic artifacts, maybe doing good by accident, like that crazy jumper helicopter that blew up happened to have its wreckage fall on a dictator. A part of me wants to make drop-in the Wizard origin too. Maybe 2 separate perk lines, but Wizard would probably fit better as its own origin.

Native perk based on being someone from Oz, no idea what they'd get.

Witch origin, with the choice to be either a good witch or a bad witch. Good witches get a free appearance perk, bad witches get intimidation, or something.

Wizard is the snake oil salesman/tech/bluffing origin. Also, helping people realize that what they thought they needed was inside them all along.

Flying monkey in the companion section.
I kind of want some of that sand offered for purchase.

Drawback where water makes you melt.
Drawback where you're missing either your brain, heart, or courage.
"I had the strangest dream" drawback where your jump is 12 years long, but the first and last years are spent with no powers on a farm in Kansas.
Probably too meta, and might work better as a perk for Wizard, but "Jumper, the great and powerful!" drawback where tales of your deeds are spread throughout Oz, and probably exaggerated too, but you've secretly lost all your powers.

>> No.50490992

Can't fucking sleep so time to shitpost with you guys!

I have several.
Getting Malefore as a companion then importing him as a love interest IN THE VERY NEXT JUMP was a mistake. Giving former broken villains a sudden love interest causes all kinds of fuckery. Helps with keeping them grounded and mellowed out though. Also became a fashion model...this only helped inflate his ego even further. He tends to insult my decisions often and laughs when things blow up in my face. Though when things get tough I can always count on him to help. Very fucking smug when he's right...which is often.

An OC dragon is Matahari a dragon I got from Demonking Daimao. He's a chipper old dragon with a streak of extreme nerdiness. Master tier programmer. Often tries to do his best for me but later on he got imported as a Rascal in Spyro: Classic. Turns out to have revived his fear in ghosts and is even easier to spook and bully. Became bffs with Classic!Spyro though. This later became complicated when Spyro got imported as an adult in generic creepy pasta down the line. Can romance bloom on the battlefield? Apparently it did with these two. Age rolls where a mistake

I mean, you've sent them somewhere far away inside a sapient magical maze... So you probably won't be hearing from someone without powerful teleportation for a while. Not sure why you're going through that trouble, though.

Worm technically.
Dragon Age, Anima has some fantastic but expensive enchanting, Geneology has a perk for it sort of.
Overlord has good enchanting but it's pretty much reskinned D&D. Other Overlord has enchanting as well though and it's not bad.
Touhou Magic can do some crazy shit too if the Mini-Hakkero is any indication.

Maybe bring one-night-stands to a hotel room or something, instead.

>> No.50491251

Because it's not in the jump. It's something Worm_Anon intended but forgot to actually write in. The power is based off of Dauntless', whose items require that he be nearby to power them. You can give them to other people, but they'd only work if they stayed close. The power is still way better than Dauntless', though. He has no control over what powers his items produce is, and it takes around twenty infusions before they start actually producing powers instead of just becoming physically tougher. You have control over what powers manifest, and can start making powers from day one.

Just gameplay. It wasn't nothing to write home about, they skipped around a lot. But it did show weapon breaking, which you need to use different weapons you get from defeated enemies.

The Switch seems to be the real console that Wii-U wasn't. The demo they played ran like crap on Wii-U.

Pick a Spyro jump. LoS has the biggest one though for bragging rights.
Forgotten Realms can let you be a Dragon too, In fact you can be some real silly shit like a prismatic or force dragon if you dump 1500ish cp into it. Of course that would require using the Forgotten Realms jump, but I think it's worth it just for the aesthetics.

Okay, everyone who makes a Stand tries to go for some cool ability, but I tried to be different and make a pure punch-ghost, with the most creative name ever. The Requiem version differed a bit more than I intended when I started out, however.

『Stand by Me』
Power: A
Speed: C
Range: E
Durability: A
Precision: C
Learning: A
Takes a form that resembles a rusted, mechanical humanoid that's falling apart. It's worth noting that, even compared to other high durability Stands, 『Stand by Me』 is ridiculously hard to put down. It's just that the rating don't go higher than A. I figured it'd be okay to give it high stats because it's ability isn't too gimmicky. The closest things 『Stand by Me』 has to a power is that it does not transfer damage back to the user and that it can protect the user from attacks they don't see coming. It is self-aware, though it does not speak, and dedicates its existence to the protection of the user.

Power: A
Speed: A
Range: E
Durability: A
Precision: A
Learning: A
The stand now takes the form of the upper half of an angelic figure. It's face above the nose maintains the rusted, mechanical look, and numerous, frighteningly dexterous, wings of scrap iron adorn its back. Also, the Stand is now roughly 3 stories tall, and abuses Stand intangibility to not destroy the surrounding area. The real gain of becoming Requiem was, instead of gaining a broken ability, that Power and Durability received comically high boosts, especially the latter. Like, ??? probably would have been written under Durability if I thought that wouldn't be too cringey and that I wouldn't have gotten yelled at for breaking convention.

Is this any good? Should I just make Learning E since it doesn't have many creative applications besides punching people in new ways?

To answer whether or not you get the other class abilities from buying a certain type of magic I say... I leave that up to you.

Since the magic is all about costs and prices, could we add things on to make spells more powerful?

I built probes to gather knowledge. I mean, I'm pretty crazy about knowledge for knowledge's sake, but it's tempered by survival instinct. When we're ACTUALLY dealing with things that will rip away the minds of mortals and not just some half assed take-my-word-for-it Lovecraft shit, I take precautions. I learn things second hand. It's slower, but some things are worth waiting for.

The Egg Pawns were useless. I shouldn't have expected better, but I was maybe half-assing it at the time.
The Goats were equivalent to Prinnies. They found a few people who were violently opposed to being involved with the search, people who as opposed to asking "Who?" would slam doors in their faces and yell at them to go away.
I made a few Beastmen, and they fared a bit better, but one by one they all came to me and told me they thought I was going down a dark path. This is dangerous, they said, you shouldn't look into it any more, madam. Useless, every one of them.

So I built Thoth.
Thoth was the finest robot I'd built since Saitama. I really outdid myself. Fully sapient AI, brilliant deductive reasoning, hundreds of sensory types, encyclopedic knowledge of literature, and enough physical power to knock a person into the ceiling. The best damn thing Fallen London had ever seen, for sure.
Yeah, Thoth was great.

I briefly played around with him on my Moriarty escapades, but he could logic his way through things so quick it really killed the game of it. So I set him on his task and he took to it.

It was... weird. Thoth was always prone to flowery exposition -- a side effect of the literature -- but as time went on his reports seemed to become more... disheveled. His scarf alone started looking more worn and moth eaten... which shouldn't have happened, since I'd put a small enchantment on it to keep it fresh.

Droids and Pawns I sent to help would disappear or break down. The Goats would get too spooked. And that one Beastmen I sent with him? God, I don't even want to talk about the way he stumbled in, looking like he'd just got back from a fight with the rats, screaming and begging that I should stop, recall Thoth, don't ever do this again. Weird. I had to knock him out.
But Thoth was making progress, he kept saying he was so close, so I just let him go.

Towards the end his reports turned into a meandering wall of rambling prose. Completely indecipherable. I don't know what the fuck.
But the very last thing he sent me was very short.

It only said, "I will go North."

And then we lost all communication.

The jump is despised because it's barely a jump. The entire thing is a character generator for 3.5 that happens to use CP. And the drawbacks are such that they rapidly start giving you more power than impediments. Also Stupid_Dog was working on a jump that actually cared about the setting instead of having a couple brief bits showing it to be anything but generic 3.5. He didn't claim it though since he never did back in the day. It mostly got on the drive because the author said he had plans to refine it, but then went completely AWOL.

I tend to try and make early jumps if I can, TOME is the best example of said early jumps. There is a single night in which you MUST deal with some trouble but once that's resolved you'll have the rest of the decade basically in an MMO
Captain N and Ruroni Kenshin are both well made and stick to their source material in abilities but with room to grow(Playing with Super Power comes to mind)

Also, in addition to reality warping powers, even minor gods usually have something like 30 levels of Outsider.

This was actually asked before, although it was more in terms of how the hell that works in terms of being more powerful than the person giving you power, which I think the answer was something akin to magical girls.

My first dragon was basically the cliché of "loyal shinobi" to a fault - being the Covert Demonic Dragon, Kasumi Rogue from Cardfight! Vanguard. He's mellowed out over time, although he still vies with Adam Jensen for working with / as my bodyguard and head of security.

Second dragon was Bahamut from FFX - who has become basically my go-to for "Fuck up this X". X can be anything - corporation. City. Continent. Asteroid belt. Planetary network. He's gotten beefed, and especially ever since Shaman King when I could suddenly Armor OverSoul with him - that strength joins mine and shit has been wrecked. Utterly shrekt.

Third dragon was Draco along with his soulmate Sadie and the older sister / semi-motherly figure Fenris Fenrir from Ragnarok Online. He's a timid soul - after adventuring for a time after RO he wanted to become the kind of hero like those he still adventures with, to be somebody who could both protect Sadie and be worthy of looking up to. He's been... slowly on that path, growing.

My assassin tonberry, The Substitute Teacher a la FFType-0, has also been becoming a more draconic being. It's been kinda terrifying, especially with his Stands, becoming a Viator of Nullspace, Hunting Magic a la Circle- Look. It's bad.

Jump # 126 The Room
Gender: Female
Location: Hell… I mean San Francisco
Background: Drop In (0)

*Oh Hai Jumpchan (50, Discount)
*28 minutes past the hour (100)
*Very busy working (300)
*What are these characters doing here (300)

*Box of Chocolates (50, Discount)
*Football (200)

*Being in the room (+ shame and sorrow)

Well this world was a peculiar place filled with strange people. It was almost maddening how similar it was to a normal world and yet how strange the people acted. Anyways I found myself becoming friends with Johnny as the only person who knew of me.

Do to my gender unfortunately Mark and I didn’t really get along (Mark was interested in other things besides friendship with both me and my wives).

Anyways I I used a version of the mobile trace system from G Gundam combined with Warframe tech to create a martial arts sport where people remotely piloted 10’ tall robots and beat the hell out of each other. It turned out to be a huge success despite the cost of the robots. I sort of became a billionare a few times over but I already have more money than could ever use.

Anyways I stayed friends with Johnny and even gave him a job when he became dissatisfied working at the bank. Unfortunately Lisa actually started to hit on me instead of Mark (Damn Harem perks). When I turned her down she played it off as a joke but I got her to admit she was bored with her relationship with Johnny. I advised her to either get counseling or let Johnny go because what she was trying to do wasn’t fair to either of them.

She wound up breaking up with him, he blamed me for a bit but I managed to convince him the advice I gave was for the best. He and Mark Stayed friends, I managed to help Johnny find a better girlfriend who he married and actually had a kid with.

Literally anywhere from "trader helping the economy" to "noble bringing prosperity to a troubled nation" to "small-time hero stopping some moderate demons" to "killing gods that made worlds" to "toppling evil interstellar empires".

It varies widelly, based on what world you land in, what the objective is, and if you visit other worlds or get summoned again.

The jump is basically like an amalgam of all those 'summoned to another world' stories, but with the summoned people having a web forum to chat with. And they're unionized.

Ah, right. That's... Yeah.

Okay, let's talk about Ethelinda. Where do I start? Jeez. Ethelinda is a white dragon with holy powers. She's from the King Arthur jump and our relationship is complicated. You see, I was a knight during that jump. I won't go into all the details here but after things fell through with the Round Table and I was kind of bodily thrown out of Camelot I ended up on a quest to find a cure for a magical illness that slowly turned the victim to stone. I was advised by Merlin (which really should have been my first clue) to go find a holy dragon by the name of Ethelinda.

After a whole bunch of irritating riddle solving, a bunch of magical narcotics, and dealing with Faerie bullshit for weeks, I managed to wheedle the location of Ethelinda out of the Faerie Queen and thereafter I managed to run the fuck away after she got a bit too touchy-feeling and began to become suspiciously less covered the more I saw her.

Now, Ethelinda. I found Ethelinda inside of a cave that led to some kind of weird pocket reality full of light, water, and magic crystals. She was... I'm not sure how to put this into nice terms so I'll just say it; she was an unbelievably perverted 'ara ara~' dragon with more lewd than I could deal with. It was seriously off-putting because she had the whole beautiful white holy radiance thing going full blast all the time while chatting me up and dropping mind-blowingly lewd implications. But anyway, I managed to get the cure out of her at the expense of promising to "call her" later.

That's how I gained the ability to booty call a ridiculously perverted holy dragon. That was the beginning of things. It all escalated later on and somehow I wound up massively hung over in a wedding dress fighting the Saxons and almost accidentally blew up like half of the Round Table in outrage at being repeatedly mistaken for a girl while a disturbingly smug dragon kept dropping lewd hints about the night before in front of the entire army.

People that don't hate her maybe, but nobody that white knights outside of general don replace jumps stuff.

>> No.50493817

She's got one or two anons that are pretty keen on her jumps, and generally when people make comments about whatever perceived faults they have of SJ, those folks show up to try and refute them, like the whole SJ doesn't like to criticism thing that brought out people fighting over how SJ vastly improved Lost Odyssey by responding to criticism or not.

For people who don't know who she is I think SJ just comes off as one of those "great jumpmakers who are misunderstood" types. Like Angelanon.

>> No.50493820

Yeah, I'm with the other guy. Each and every time I remember someone defending her it's always a broader statement about jumpmakers in general, and never her design choices in particular-and often bring up that she's awful at taking criticism.

>> No.50493828

The issue is that people who dislike her sometimes go full psychotic about it, and people here are fed the fuck up with anyone being treated like that by the shitposter and other idiots. So it's less defense of her and more criticism of that behavior.

>> No.50493848

>one or two

Who? WHY?!


Pretty sure they've never set foot here. On CYOA gen people build specifically to rape her builds, and even made CYOAs about enslaving/raping/humiliating her. I wouldn't user her as an example of someone with too many fans.

>> No.50493872

Honestly what can we really criticize about her design choices? It's not like we have any consensus on the standard. I can understand people criticizing that she's basically never here, but even that's a far stretch for the most part given that people tolerate cthulhu and tentatively abraxes. It's like the guy that was criticizing Many because he was being a jerk on the internets.

If there is nothing to criticize her for effectively, then in the end there's little justification for her stuff to not go on the drive except if she doesn't post it here, but she's never made a jump that she hasn't posted here, so even that's a moot point.

>> No.50493873

That sounds disappointingly plausible. As someone who's always tried to be impartial and give everyone a fair and comprehensive critique I'm disappointed I have significantly less time to jumpchain these days, such that I apparently didn't even know LO was a jump until recently.

>> No.50493888

I was using Angel as an example of someone who newcomers have no clue about at first and can see as a "pretty nice person" until they realize why the community is so polarized against them.

>> No.50493916

For the Lost Odyssey jump? Plenty. There's almost no fluff for the perks, such that I had no idea whee the vidya mechanics began and the actual magic ended. Four of the building items did arbitrary effects with seemingly no justificatiin, and there was a six month free return option thrown in as well. She also tends to slap on mandatory drawbacks for certain backgrounds, which for those of us unfamiliar with the IP come across as arbitrary and inexplicable.

The worst thing I'd have to say about that jump though, is that it's almost as soulessly boring as some of Mib's work. Powers, perks, items and drawbacks alike are described like tax form warranties, with absolutely no relational context to their place in the setting.

>> No.50493917

>one or two
>Who? WHY?!
Well there are a couple people who regularly lurk on here to pull new jumps and repost them over to SB, so it's not out of the question for them to defend SJ, since she's pretty popular over there, especially now that she's fixing Tera's jumps for them, though all the discussion has been on fixing PS238 so far.

>> No.50493943


On, right. Yeah, fair enough.


...everything you wrot makes me faintly nauseous, because that all sounds like the literary equivalent of a parasitic wasp laying eggs in a spider.

>> No.50493977

The problem here is that a lot of this is largely opinion. We don't have an accepted standard on what levels of fluff is considered good, and even a lot of the accepted jumpmakers here fall into the trap of making all of their perks "You can do X, you can do Y, you can do Z".

I like reading through a good story just as much as you anon, but heck, you might call it boring, but there are plenty of other "boring" jumps out there, so what she did might as well just be par for the course. By now it's practically that as long as the jump doesn't suffer from one true build syndrome and doesn't hit some of the cardinal rules like tampering with other jumps or bypassing companion/warehouse rules, it might as well get a pass.

The most common argument I've seen against this is people bringing up "well why didn't you say this when SJ was asking for feedback" and as bogus as I think that is, it's not like they're technically wrong. Most of us were just so fed up getting her to address issues like the item/perk exploits we didn't feel like telling her again that her writing made the setting look stale as fuck.

Lolwut? I thought they just leeched from the drive.

> doesn't hit some of the cardinal rules like tampering with other jumps or bypassing companion/warehouse rules, it might as well get a pass.
Which is kinda the thing. Her jumps routinely include things that do stuff like this or interfere or try to get around other rules in the chain. At least before the usual hour of arguing till she removes them.

>> No.50494024

She's on record over there for saying that Bancho gave her the permission "to revise, but not completely revamp. I have editorial control and permission to add or modify stuff and to rebalance the jump. Bancho still has ultimate and final say however."

The train kind of sped up afterwards when she talked about the powers that she felt needed to be changed in order to rebalance the jump. Apparently Bancho gave her the rights to all of his jumps in the same capacity so I guess she's sweeping through them one by one or something.

>> No.50494035

Holy shit who cares? What they do over there can stay over there, we don't have to have a play by play every time SB holds a war council.

>> No.50494061

>this is all largely opinion

You misunderstand, this is EXACTLY my point and I am expressing the disappointment that I wasn't around to drill this into her stupid skull at the time.

As for the rest-frankly, her attitude more than anything is why I consider her worthy of contempt. The fact that she actively discourages constructive criticism and tries to be a speical snowflake of meta wouldn't change my opinion of her if she didn't also turn around and try to get her work accepted on our drive. I would have absolutely no issues with her if she exclusively made jumps for SB, because otherwise she's actively encouraing people to get away with ignoring criticism altogether.

>> No.50494062

But if she fixes them (even if it takes a massive argument), there's no reason why the jump isn't accepted, which was the case with Lost Odyssey. Granted she'll probably keep trying until most of the thread is so apathetic that they'll let things pass (again the case with Lost Odyssey), but so far there still isn't really any ground to say that her stuff won't make it to the drive.

People would have better luck telling Brutus to delete whatever jump she puts up into the drive, and even that's iffy as hell. I doubt anyone is going to convince her that /tg/ doesn't want her jumps in the first place, that's more of a "oh, she made a jump, well I guess we'll take it after bitching it out" situation.

>> No.50494083

Well in this case it affects the upcoming Xenogear/Diablo/The Gamer jumps, which are still technically for the /tg/ drive and not the SB drive. Good luck getting either Cthulhu or SJ to announce that they're going to keep it to their own drives, because it hasn't happened.

>> No.50494088

She hasn't fixed the fact that one of her items gives you a six month return. Frankly I find it annoying you're wringing your hands over pedanti details when the individual in question, like Bancho and DDanon, has a complete inability to un-fuck their work responsibly.

>> No.50494097

Someone needs to tell them we have enough shitstorms over here without their help.

Your contempt is exactly why you get opposition. If you didn't always whine, especially when she's not here, and if you could behave in a way that's not insulting regardless of how you feel, the defenders you're complaining about would evaporate. As I told you before, people are not supporting her so much as they hate your attitude.

>> No.50494129

I think you're misunderstanding something. As shitty as she is in your opinion, and despite whatever perceived faults you think she has, her jumps are still accepted on the drive.

What I'm saying is that you'd have to move fucking heaven and hell just to get this community to ban her jumps from the drive (which was what started this discussion in the first place, whether her "the Gamer" jump would get on the drive), and it'd be even harder to get her existing jumps removed, even if they have existing exploits.

>> No.50494144

As I've said before, I've never whined when it comes to giving her criticism. Right now I am expressing my opinion of her, which I freely admit is completely negative-but don't conflate that with bias. If anything, I'm more frustrated in myself for not being around to sit down and explain which parts were iffy to her.

The issue, as you've said yourself, is that not saying anything at all doesn't work in her atually approving.

Trasformation is an excellent save or suck as well as a fantastic buff when used right.
Fucking with minds is as good as a save or die in most cases and secrets aren't going to figure themselves out.
Revive is keybound to ctrl+r for safety reasons. It may or may not get used more than I'd like.

>> No.50494401

I violate the first one because magic is useful in combat and sometimes I have to kill my enemies, though I try to avoid it when I can. As a jumper, I obviously violate the last one. Other then that? I pretty much adhere to all the other laws.

Some elements may change etc. based on feedback.

I especially need anyone familiar with EP to let me know if I've gone off the rails and/or left out some good perks, augmentations or gear options for either the main jump or Firewall. Remaining options in Firewall is probably going to be gear/mods from that book.

Update on other claims:
1. Stargate: Atlantis is about 75-80% done. Still a couple of structural issues I need to sort out regarding the Pegesus Local background (or backgrounds? not sure)
2. Re-do of Arpeggio of Blue Steel is a priority.

Lined up:
3. I'm probably going to update The Polity jump at some point once I finish reading the Transformation trilogy (Dark Intelligence, War Factory and Infinity Engine). The plan so far is just to add in a couple more options and maybe increase the drawback cap to compensate.
4. Module 2: Gatecrashing for EP. Depending how this goes I might make more modules eg: for Sunward, Rimward.

After the Jump started, Bigby immediately took off to live in the wilderness outside of CWCville, far away from Chris-Chan's "civilization"; Alonne, on the other hand, respectfully asked to stay in the Warehouse to "train his mind and body in solitude"; he did this while glancing between me and the crate of wine we got from Spice and Wolf; I grudgingly obliged him. Miranda decided to stay with me, if only so we would suffer together.

In time, we grew to envy them. Chris-Chan homed in on me like a bullet, anointing me as the assistant mayor for reasons I can't fathom. I knew I couldn't kill him- the logic of this world wouldn't allow it- and I was unsure of what the reaction would be if I just left. If I pissed Chris off he'd probably kill me or do something else that's almost as horrible- or even worse- and I couldn't risk that at this point.

So... for ten years I basically acted as his yes-man. I didn't step out of line at all- didn't help the "villains", didn't try and exact societal change or try and oust Chris- nada. This world is numero uno on my shit-list once I get my Spark.

On a slightly happier note, Chief Ahuli- my adviser- has a friendly rivalry with my ancestral guardian from Van Helsing. They bicker and try to one-up each other whenever I ask for help, which has been... surprisingly helpful, since by themselves they're pretty tight lipped.

Bigby swaggered back into town a few weeks before the Jump ended, not giving one single fuck before joining Alonne in the Warehouse; Miranda and I joined them, a few days later. Alonne was a bit sheepish, but after almost a hundred years of service I could understand him taking a sabbatical.

Will clarify next version and add a wiki link.
Dying in "normal" conditions - like being shot in the head, or sucked into a black hole, whatever would normally kill your jumper - is still chain end.

Egocasting from one place to another, which is functionally the same as "sending a copy and killing the original", doesn't count as death.
Likewise, using a Pandora Gate to travel doesn't count as death (because some theories say they destroy you and rebuild you at the destination).

Because I relaxed the 'death by egocasting' thing, I added an extra loss condition: Being successfully infected by the Exurgent virus, even if you can survive it with jumper BS, is a chain end.

The Jumper-Grade Cortical Stack can prevent you from dying if you take that augmentation, but at the cost of being vulnerable until you are retrieved and re-sleeved.

>> No.50495572

It doesn't. Elan is only half 'pact', the other half is something closer to 'synchronization'.

Post-jump, you can still drawn from the Anima spirit realms to power your abilities such as summoning, done entirely because otherwise figuring out how things would have to work every single jump would be an incredible pain. So yeah, you can totally just conjure up a pixie while in Harry Potter or whatever.

Basic combat skill of the relevant type comes with your background.

>> No.50496009

A great deal of confusion on their part. Not about anything in particular, just in general. The Maidens of Fate were created as autonomous Fate-managing patterns, and as such aren't used to having things like "free will" or "personalities". They've been learning in the time since the Primordial War, but they're slow learners. They're best at understanding those parts of the human condition that their individual aspect of destiny corresponds to, and have trouble with the others. You might find that they do something incredibly alien, and only realize upon seeing your response that it was something unsettling.

>> No.50496170

I can't answer the jump-specific questions, but for setting-related stuff (skipping Psi, since I never really used it and don't remember the rules well):

>Are morphs only used to move about in the real world? If not, Do I need to buy multiple morphs for multiple forks?
Yeah, morphs are just for physical universe stuff. Forks don't need to be instantiated in a morph. In fact, a large amount of the population are permanently informorphs, being unable to afford their own physical morphs.

>Are augmentations available in-setting for cash? Is there any kind of limit to how many you can get?
You can buy augmentations, but I doubt they'll be as handily-packaged as the ones available for CP. Like, instead of getting a Black Hat enhancement augmentation package, you'll have to figure out what augs would improve your hacking skills and assemble a package from them.

>> No.50496209 [SPOILER] 

You can get Ludwig's Holy Sword as a CP weapon in Bloodborne actually.

And yet Ludwig's actual Holy Blade is not available in both Bloodborne and Dark Souls jumps.

>> No.50496375

>If I start with Psi-Gamma, is it easier to learn Psi-Chi skills?
Not going by the game rules - it's just as hard. You can self-teach; in fact you'll probably have to since asyncs are fairly rare.

>Are morphs only used to move about in the real world?
Pretty much. Infomorph (a default virtual body) should be 0cp. Will fix.

>Do I need to buy multiple morphs for multiple forks?
Yes. Unless you're going to swap out different forks in the same body.

>If you don't / can't do missions for the DLC, is there any downside to the Send In The Cleaners drawback?
If you don't/can't do the four scenario missions, you still have to deal with the missions in the Cleaners drawback. If you don't do those, you probably get kicked out of Firewall and your cell probably abandons you, and Jump-chan wonders why you signed up for Firewall duty if you're not going to do your job.

>Do you retain your powers inside VR?
Well, you still /have/ them, but whether they work or not is going to depend on what those powers are - essentially, fanwank.

TBC 1/2

>> No.50496394

You're not going to get dementia or anything, but you'll be forgetting some stuff over the millennia.

>Also, do Companions stick with you for the minimum two thousand years?

>Do they have the same curse that makes them live for millennia without their out of jump powers?
No, but it shouldn't be a problem. Some people wank that their companions automatically don't age if you don't (I think this may actually be said in tge original intro PDF?) or they'd be rezzed if they died from old age. And there are plenty of ways to slow or halt aging in DC.

>The canon companion option says there are exceptions and to check the notes, but
Forgot about that.

>There goes a lot of Potential for pranks
The problem in the series is that transforming someone other than yourself erodes their mind.

>This is just stupid, if you can truly resurrect someone who deserves to live You are morally obligated to do so!
This is technically just referring to using necromancy on human bodies/ghosts.

>> No.50496543

Continued 2/2

>How does egocasting work? Do you wake up in a new sleeve somewhere else in the solar system without any of your items?
Essentially, that.
You sit down in an egocasting facility, they scan your ego in your brain and delete it as they go. That scan gets emailed to the destination, where it's downloaded into a body. They stick your former body on ice for when you come back, if you're coming back.
This body is one you arranged for in advance, and if it's short notice, is probably whatever they happen to have available - a Worker pod a foot taller than you're used to, a neo-chimp, a female Splicer with breath that smells like tobacco. That's why resleeving stress and morph dysphoria is a big thing in setting.
You (as a jumper) wake up with your powers, mind and digital accounts (and Muse) in the new body at your destination, but with no physical gear unless you arranged for that ahead of time.

>Are augmentations available in-setting for cash? Is there any kind of limit to how many you can get?
Yes, but you buy individual enhancements instead of suites or packages. Buying "all the mods" is going to be pretty damn expensive.
There's no hard limit on how many one person can have except for common sense - if you have two arms, you can't buy more than two hand lasers, and some types of augmentation can't be installed in certain types of morph.

>There is a TON of stuff on offer and only a little cp to go around. Maybe add a few more 100-200 drawbacks? Increase the cap to 800?
I'm certainly considering that for the next version. I may even up the morph allowance to 600cp.

Killing is something I try to avoid, but I was forced to shoot and kill someone with a magic gun. (Said person was going to be a puppet emperor for an evil cult, who refused to believe me when I told him that so...)

Although I defenestrated that rule during my Disgaea jump, although I still try to follow it.

>Thou shalt not reach beyond the Borders of Life

Confused what this means. Is it forbidding necromancy and resurrection? Because I don't necessarily see this as a bad thing. (I've always been confused why necromancy is a 'bad' thing. I guess zombies can be unsavoury.)

How does standard resleeving work? Like, if you just want to run around in a different body?

Because ego-casting is death post-jump, as is the basic cortical stack both in- and post-jump...

...I haven't given much thought to my personal style of magic, until now. The thought occurs I DID pick up Order Magic in YJ jump, though. Given my other major choices some sort of bastardized half-programming language, half-runic alphabet that amalgates the Red Science's equations and Correspondence's sigils which replaces the Egyptian hierogyphs of the former seems appropriate.

Deflect magic missiles by projecting the symbol of "hurtling forever towards the Earth" overwritten by a formula that proves love can move mountains.
