Hey qtg: what kinds of fights do you like?

I like ones where the enemy has teamwork and friendship on their side.

Hey, QTG.

Mind if I ask some questions? I'm gearing up to run a quest following a pyrokineticist in Academy City, and I'm currently taking notes and formulating ideas.

First off, is the Index manga accurate to canon, or do I need to read the light novels?
I rather dislike the LN format, and, having just binged my way through the Railgun manga, I figure backwards moon-comics are the preferred medium.

Secondly, would you prefer buddy cops (Judgement style), vigilante justice, or working for a somewhat-shady OC organization?

So I have an idea for a Quest Thread but I wanted to get opinions on it. I first floated this idea back when Cosgrove was running Bleach quest and was promptly told to wait awhile. Now I'm back to get people's thoughts.

So the idea would be a game where you're a Soul Reaper during the period of WW2. Over the course of the narrative you'd have to deal with the fallout from the bombs being dropped on Japan, the massive amount of souls flooding the world, and also you might get to interact with other versions of the soul society.

This also sounds good. The magic side is pretty much entirely run on hand-waving everything, which is a bit difficult to deal with in a quest.

I'm kind of intending to throw the players into trouble in the OP post, to be honest. If they're swept up in their own problems, then they can't go off sticking their heads into canon stuff, right?

I fully expect the players to surprise me
I just haven't got an idea of how they'll do so yet
Besides, if they try to get involved with any magic users, they'll probably get their asses kicked.
I don't intend to pander, but I don't want to be overly-cruel, either.
I don't want to say "You can't do this," because I feel like that's a certain way to make them want to do exactly that. Forbidden fruit or what have you.

It's true that Captain wasn't using the animal transformations in the last fight, but he sure did against the ninjas. And he only ever went full Chimera at the start, when the Renegade first came back to him.

We're going to finish Claire's arc no matter what we do, since she's always around. I'd like to recommend Fallen Angel and Rin for testing this one, since Chief has much progress to her name as well. I'm also desperately curious what Rin's second syndrome is.

So I was thinking of a Quests Quest, with this as the cover.

It's gonna be like Waifu Quest in execution, except the questers write-in for the MC a list of choices depending on the situation. Then a diceroll happens to determine which among the choices does the MC take, most of the time.

Good old fashioned comedy.

Captain is the shining success of the program because his power isn't part of the Chimera Syndrome. He's a natural superhuman that can control the Renegade. He's choosing to be Overed right now, but he doesn't have to be an Overed and have a Syndrome to do the things he does. And that's it for my crazy theory

That was the objective of the project, but everyone tells us that it failed when Captain first expressed the Renegade.

All of the other Subjects are failures, and they express that failure through being exceptionally powerful Tri-Breeds. Captain alone is a Purebreed, but the Doctor isn't as interested in that as he is in Captain's psyche. It could be that the results that Doctor wants only happen when Captain is in the right frame of mind. My guess is that it has something to do with the Impulse, but it doesn't look like he really wants Captain to surrender to it.

You are a bard-knight, a warrior to whom combat is just as much dance as it is warfare. You're the best of the best- a sword is a baton to the slaughter. Bard-knights are the most powerful combatants in the world because of their natural ability to hear and change the Song. Not only can they hear the near future as they fight, they can change it just by fighting a little differently.

However, you were betrayed by your own. The song turned against you, as your fellow knights attacked you. The song said you would die, and with that many knights working against you, there was no way you could fight it off.

But then, just as you were about to die, you learned to use disharmony. You simply hummed the right tune- and lightning struck out of the clear sky.

TL;DR Medieval, low-magic setting where bard-knights are pretty much precogs that can manipulate fate and luck. Every time you fail at something, you gain Disharmony that you can spend to literally break the laws of physics as an overt 'magical' ability.
