I will say that I might have tried too hard to make the intro be dramatic and make the jump seem challenging, given the entire chorus of 'IM DIE HERE' that's been going on. I'll be adding this to part one when I find a place I'm happy cramming it in.

That drama wasn't the problem; I think most of us liked that. It's the lack of clarification of who and what you are, and what the Deadlight is that caused the consternation. Especially in light of how big of an impact that decision makes on part 2.

The Deadlight looked like a plot device, but when you stated that it wasn't and then I found out that it was, it left a WTF taste in my mouth.

Its a good jump, I like it. I don't know how survivable it is unpowered, but your clarification may cause me to revisit my build and jump parts 2 and 3. I'll say that much.

Sidebar: will it be possible to do part 3 without making it an end jump? I'd like to jump Tenchi for my close, but this questline has me interested.

>> No.37109060

also this, this is a valid option. I never thought about it, but there's no reason you couldn't do it. I never said you had once chance to break the Deadlight.

Chances are, when I said that it was just a plot device. I was making things up on the spot a fair bit typing up part 2.

I am .. yeah, I'll do four endings I think. Deadlight gone normal jump, deadlight intanct normal, deadlight gone end jump and deadlight intact end jump.

Report to your local Commissar for purging.

But in all seriousness, I'm not going to rely on her THAT much. But if she's there, I may as well get some use out of her. I'll simply be double-checking my decisions if she says anything side from "WOR-SHEEP KHAY-OHS" or some stuff. A coalmine canary, nothing more.

Of course, the main issue is that I took this AFTER Asura's Wrath, so the tribes building a temple to me will be... problematic when they see my powers growing. Hence, a plan. Instead of keeping their prayer energy/any lust energies to myself, I'll store them in Mantra Canisters. With Gaia Class, they'll have more around as they breed, and that means more energy over time. Store it until the Chaos forces arrive.

Then unleash it. Bolstered shields, defenses, siege weapons, the works. All along with robot grunts moving forward to soften the forces. I'll do what I can to make sure the Light of Terra and as many of its inhabitants as possible can survive.

There will be Aliens. That drawback will give you a time limit.

And also, by default, everyone will get a personal Pursuer. Pyramid Head was specific to Sunderland's issues, so you won't get Pyramid Head. But you will get your variation of him.

And he will be unstoppable. By himself, he will simply not stop respawning. And as a basic ability, your Pursuer will have complete control over the Otherworld labyrinth you find yourself in. Complete control, complete access to every crime, trial, tribulation, and sacrifice you made up until that point.

But a drawback will make him worse. Every time he is struck down, he will come back stronger. Access to more of what makes up you.

Oh, and for those of you who have Companions? They'll have their own Pursuers and bullshit to deal with in Silent Hill. Because THIS IS FUN FOR EVERYONE.

Fucking thank you. Putting Pyramid Head in the movie and Homecoming made no sense. I get that he's a cool design, but we don't need to shove him into everything. Something personalized works so much better. Will there be guidelines for what sort of Pursuer we get, or is the potential range of repressed psychological issues too large to give more advice than "Make it symbolic"?

>> No.37109659

Too many psychological issues and hang-ups to make any good guideline for a Pursuer.

Cool. Okay, my issues as a jumper (I've used perks to thoroughly scour away any issues I have now) would probably revolve around how I leave all these worlds behind. Every decade I change my life drastically, abandoning all but a few people I manage to bring along. So I see my Pursuer as being not one entity, but an entire pack of indistinct figures chasing after me. Not aggressively, necessarily, but with a desperate need to find me and make me pay attention to them that leads to them harming me as I struggle to get away. Make it a symbol of how I fear I'm treating people as nothing more than supporting characters in my story rather than individuals in their own right. They'd be kind of like the Raw Shocks from Shattered Memories, only less goofy looking and MUCH smarter.

>And Type-moon Magecraft BLATANTLY works within the laws of Physics. This is a stated fact of the setting. The only Magic that breaks physics is shit only known to a few rare people. Magic doesn't even interfere with technology, Mages are just stupidly traditionalist.

Type-Moon magecraft actually blatantly /disregards/ physics. Anything it does can theoretically be reproduced by nature or science, but magecraft ignores pesky things like gravity and conservation of energy in the effects it produces.

So yeah, breaks physics every single time it is used.

What are some of the more outlandish ideas you've had for jumps?

Something I was thinking about doing is a "build-a-jump," where CP is spent to design the world and set its theme and genre. I'd still need to figure out what this jump would actually give you to take to other worlds though.

This also got me conceptualizing a much more meta, and probably less accepted, "opposite day" jump, wherein you'd spend ten years as a disembodied observer while Jumpchan borrowed your abilities and had an adventure.

If you don't smash the Deadlight, you don't get any CP, right?

>> No.37110648


You're basically sent on an adventure to various settings by a bored multidimensional god, ten years each "Jump". At the beginning of each Jump you're usually given 1000 Choice Points to spend on various perks and items, though you can take drawbacks (extra challenges) for more points if you need them. At the end of every jump you can choose to either go back home, stay in that world, or go to the next Jump. While you're on this adventure, time freezes back home and any Jump you've been too in the past, so you don't have to worry about "going missing" back home or anything like that.

The drive has all the Jumps made so far, though the Pokemon is first since it's canonically the beginning of your adventure. You could go somewhere else for your first Jump, but you won't be able to go to Pokemon Trainer if you do. After Pokemon Trainer, you can choose to go to any other Jump, though a lower power one works better since you have less risk of dying.

Oh yeah, if you die, you just lose and get sent back home with all your stuff instead of actually dying.

Does that about cover the basics everybody?

>> No.37110733


Say does smashing the Deadlight mindfuck you into chaos mode or is that just your attempt at writing someone who would break the deadlight?

>> No.37110746

You don't get the usual 1000 cp unless the deadlight is destroyed. I added in the different tribes as a way of gaining extra CP. Each one that you don't take as an ally you get 200 CP for, as they are hostile to you.

He is not, no. Because good luck getting that guy to agree on anything other than HORROR AND MURDER. However, the realm itself had it's purpose until The Order fucked things up and said entity just made Silent Hill worse.

The town itself will be the judge. The malevolent entity will make things worse. And for those of you who like planet-cracking, the town won't be so easily destroyed.

Then you'll have an easier time of it. But even Buddha had some things stuck behind the curtain. The entity lodged in Silent Hill will absolutely try to torture you, because said entity's a complete asshole.


This is a good option aye. You have little-to-nothing to figure out, so you're spent left to try and find that one thing. And then boom.

And be warned, those of you who go 'BUT WHAT ABOUT ANIMAL CROSSING'. FOr despite YOUR lack of internal conflict, there's still the matter of plain repentance. You will not trump the town with just one thing, ooooh no. We having none of that. However, the perk will certainly help.

Ouch. Your suffering /almost/ approaches my pain of being BEING CONFINED TO THE PHYSICAL FORM for the duration of my stay. Even after going full Necron, I'd seriously have to fight off the temptation to smash that smug little orb and recover my full glory.

And that's why you crazy kids who still want to have a sense of right and wrong need to take Exemplar from Mass Effect as well as Happy and Content from PS238. I checked with tera, and the latter makes you /half/ as happy as the (unaffordable) happiness perk in Slice of Life.

Also, time for Bloodlines.

Drawbacks: To Be Continued, Frenzied, Gehenna (1600). "A couple of years" is more than enough time than I need to start constructing an orbital network of hovering fortresses based on Ar Tonelico towers, TWCB brainwave arrays, Dead Space weapons systems, Tenchi science/Spark power systems, pre-Lord of Light era fortifications and so on. To say nothing of raising armies of the dead, breaching the Nevernever and Infernal for reinforcements, mobilising my travelling state of Cybermen, unleashing the midgets, bringing to life yet more minions with Smithy's Army-which will be constructed with principles resembling the Necrons' power systems.

Drop-In, Age 27, Ventrue.

Tal'Mahe'Ra Blade (1400). Yet another blade to be duct tape'd into fusion with my Z-Saber
Sauloscept (1100). Something of an inventor's good luck charm, but-it actually works!
Fridge of Blood (1000). It's going to be a challenging 10 years, after all
Inspection (800). In case some uppity Prince pulls a fast one
Fortitude-Level 5 (300). I don't have time to burn to death, dammit!
Sneaking (200). For getting around the other bloodlines while preparing to cancel Gehenna
Finance (0). Unusable here, but might as well stack this

Like Old Ones, the trick to fighting Antediluvians is to finding and hitting them hard before they can wake. Ravnos is getting a nice Fiendfyre bath before it can revive from Torpor, Tzimisce and Gangrel will get hit with a grey goo nanoswarm through which I shall channel Hellsing-brand holy magic /and/ Hamon-and as for Set/Lasombra, I'm going to have to set up a /very/ precise hit with the Discordia Cannon. Under normal circumstances I'd just nuke the planet from orbit-but given Cain pretty much doesn't want to make trouble unless provoked I'd rather resolve this situation without having to confront him.

First off, excellent job on the Light of Terra jumps. I was wondering though, when you lose all your abilities, does that include everything you've gained while jumping? I understand regeneration, bending, and the more exotic abilities are out, but does that include knowledge boosters and the like? Like tactics, easily understanding tech, general things that a normal human could eventually come by?

Side note: What I like most about your jump is the inclusion of companions and a general objective. I know you can really grab most people as a companion, but I prefer it the way you do. Just figured I'd put that out there.

Personally, I picked up all the elements before going to Avatar, so that together with Into the Inferno I could justify any claims that I was an "emergency second Avatar" sent when the normal one had been inactive for too long without being returned to the wheel of reincarnation.

So did some work on the Percy Jackson jump. Not much so far but I figured I'd get some stuff out for critiques. As is here are my summaries of what the perk lines will be based around:
Drop-In: Fate and the more esoteric abilities, capstone is oracle
Monster: swapping out humanity for increased power or abilities, running theme of getting more powerful the less human you are
Magician: Egyptian sorcery with maybe some alternatives thrown in for kicks and to allow for more diverse builds (am considering having a few separate options for each tier with only getting discounts on one)
Greek: being the truly stand out unstoppable hero, capstone is likely going to be curse of Achiles.
Roman: More group focused demigods, while not quite as powerful as the Greeks by themselves they get various perks suited for leading groups. May just make the origin demigod and do something similar to the proposed mid-level magician perks.
Will do up a supplement of gods with sample boons and granted abilities, Jump Chan will not be included but I'm fine with people improvising their own gods of appropriate power levels. Only one I'm flat out banning completely is YWHW and his friends.

This is far, far worse than any other capstone. A fucking end-jump doesn't offer this shit. This makes any jump without magic or psionics unlosable, and that is a large amount of them.

>Inter-jump balance is a perfectly valid excuse when it is this severe.
Excepting that it has been state again and again that it is never something to consider. Unless your argument is that because of this ability this jump is now so OP that it should be an end-jump, your argument has nothing to stand on.

>it's not fun
So don't take it. /jc/ is single player, so the Timmy argument makes no sense. There are plenty of jumpers who exercise self restraint when there's something that doesn't fit with their play style. Some won't use souls, some won't take perks that make them gods. If you don't like something, don't use it.

But again, I argue that we let the jump creator make his jump and then we evaluate it. All this handflapping is just bullshit. We need new and more content, so we need to allow creators to create.

>> No.37118295

I second this. There's an obscene amount of jumps that don't use any magic or psionics at all... and as a result, it makes a fair amount of jumps incapable of failing. Even most people who use magic will utilize a fair amount of physical damage, and so it would be a very very unbalanced option.

Last I checked there wasn't a capstone that let you win 70+ jumps. But that may be me being biased, as there's a great deal of jumps that don't even touch on magic.

>> No.37118297

If the invulnerability isn't absolute invulnerability, meaning as long as you're hit hard enough on the 'invulnerable' bits you can be damaged, it should be fine.

>Last I checked there wasn't a capstone that let you win 70+ jumps. But that may be me being biased, as there's a great deal of jumps that don't even touch on magic.
And in those jumps, any of the multitude of capstone magic perks is more or less an I Win button. You have an avenue of attack that no one can defend against. You have resources that no one else can use.

Again, as I've said since Merch dropped his idea and we started talking about this, let's let the creator make his jump and evaluate it based off of whats actually written down, as opposed to a chorus of Doom Pauls.

however this argument would make a massive shitstorm that would take up an entire thread

thusly, i am arguing now that it should not exist at all in order to avoid a worse argument in the future

>> No.37118634

>you would be intentionally gimping yourself if you don't take it.
You're still thinking like multiplayer. There are plenty of jumps where I haven't taken a capstone, and I know I'm not alone in that. Your jump is your experience, and you build it how you want to drive it. The capstone might be powerful, sure, but if it doesn't fit how you want to play that jump and you aren't playing against another player: who cares?

>you're right anon, i SHOULD remove my sense of empathy and become a cold, unfeeling machine
I genuinely wonder if we're speaking the same language, because I don't know how you got that from what I said.

What you're describing happened in MR, and those of us that were there are actuely aware of that. Which is why people freak out about multiplayer. And your argument would be completely valid in and for multiplayer.

Jumpchain isn't multiplayer; it's single player only. Your concerns are valid; your argument is not.

>> No.37118686

>victory machines

Ah, not quite true. I like creating for the sake of it and seeing how far I can go. There's still PLENTY of jumps where I have a challenge and end up with a risk of failure. If I didn't have that and could just brush through everything ever, it would be boring as hell for me.

>> No.37118704

okay whatever but if this perk happens and there's a massive shitstorm about it then don't say i didn't warn you

also: it'd be less offensive if you had no idea where your weak spot is, and it moved to a random location each jump, forcing you to fight like every point was your weak spot.

I feel like there are better power eating perks than prototype.

Didn't mean to come across as you powergaming, I get your sense of fun and I always enjoy your writeups. I was just trying to get across that two jumpers can have two very different playstyles and both be valid.

That. THAT is the sort of comment that helps! Figure out how to make a thing work. Give the creator feedback so he can create. Make /jc/ better by way of diverse jumps and builds. That is exactly the kind of comment I've been arguing for, albeit obliquely.

Meh, maybe there are but MoeAnon likes Prototype. I'm ambivalient, that isn't how I play, but his jumps are fucking awesome.

Prototype is one of the more versatile ones, at least for biological targets. It's also simpler to use.

Absolute invulnerability is a bad idea. At least make it that it can be beaten with a hard enough hit.

Also, if you do take that, you should make all other durability perks in the weak spot moot. You should be more vulnerable in that area than a regular human.

I was under the impression that so long as you live, your companions will scale with you relative to the age they were when you acquired them, granting them pseudo-immortality by proxy.

However, if that's not the case, the fact that most of my companions are pokemon (and the fact that, even in canon, they tend to out-live humans) and my few non-pokemon companions I take are either already immortal or can fend for themselves (Dante, Alucard, etc) means I probably don't have to worry about it. Worse comes to worse, I can always geneforge splice them with some longevity, but even so, my combination of dark sun's Tribe of One drawback and my stands ability to disconnect my soul (and, by extension, any soul within me) and create a life construct around it means I'm already my companions phylactery.

It sees use in other jumps too. Basically, if a setting has someone who I quantify as "like, the nicest guy", I offer them fluffy longevity.

Doctor Light, for example, gets to live on into the X era to see the results of his creation and potentially cure the Maverick Virus. Also ensures Rock and Roll get to stick around and we can keep on ADVENTURE-ing in the future jumps.

Certain people deserve to live longer, and I think their ability to remain a relative constant in the timeline for a while can improve things.

I didn't take thousand master because I made "no absolute immunities" one of my restrictions for the run. Less "everything-proof shield" and more "Dodge EVERYTHING."

Thing is I also as a conscious build decision almost never USE magic outside of very specific circumstances. Since Requip was mostly replaced with DMC's weapon swapping, all I really use the mana pool for is Aera for sprouting wings as a flight method and Armor Requip for swapping into heavy power armor when in a pinch. Otherwise it pretty much just sits there unused, so I might as well actually bring it to bear when necessary. I focus on chi/ki/aura/spirit/soul/bullshit way more than magic.

You can have ALL the factions pissed off at you, criminal and otherwise. This could be 600 points as now all the criminal elements and police agencies of the world, or maybe just Roanapour, hate you.

Freak Parade could be another- someone sends psychos to kill you every once in a while- they tend to have gimmicks and a total disregard for colateral damage. 300 points.

>> No.37120812

It's like... Okay.

In Civ: Beyond Earth there are three Affinities to pick from for your colonization efforts. Earth is almost utterly fucked because of an event known as the Great Mistake.

Harmony is treehuggers, who work to splice themselves into the colonized planet's bionetwork similar to Pandora. Their victory results in them all linking together with the planet to become a form of god. Their tech base is mostly bio-organic, involving the modification of existing species to better suit them. They just leave Earth to rot.

Supremacy is mostly about the Singularity, beginning with cybernetic upgrades and ending with the colonists uploading themselves into a single massive digital consciousness and return to earth to "free the humans there from their organic bodies and bring about a new age of digital and mechanical immortality."

Purity seeks to preserve and improve upon mankind as they are. Compared to the other two, which abandon their humanity and either leave Earth to rot or erase their sense of self, Purity focuses on rebuilding the colony like earth was before the Great Mistake, working on solutions for overpopulation and resource depletion, and eventually moving the rest of humanity over to the new planet to save everyone's individuality and lives.

Of the three, I would take Purity every time. Hell, we might be able to save the original earth!

Nice. I'm going to enjoy studying and devouring Pandoran wildlife.

I'll probably send the humans back to earth in a spare spaceship with a Tower Seed and some pseudo-Towers to help solve the overpopulation/pollution/energy crisis.

Every continent gets a psudo-Tower and the main Tower Seed is planted in the ocean to clean them and coordinate the rest of the towers.

That should solve the immediate problem and give my companions time to set up small colonies and terraforming stations on Venus, Mars, Europa, the Moon, and in the asteroid belt.

That should leave Pandora free from further interference so I can study/eat in peace.

HOWEVER, I'm a reasonable guy. I'm not going to just up and burn everything down. Which is why I'm going to give the Na'vi an ultimatum: Humanity is getting the magical space rocks, even if we have to dig through your bodies to get there. You have a choice, you can move and we'll start mining peacefully, no blood needs to be spilled. Or, you can stay and be burned out like bees from a nest. Either way, we will get what we came for.

If they refuse (which they will, because MUH EYWA), well that's when I break out the military hardware. I *highly* doubt a Pandoran of any description is going to be able to no-sell a 120mm DU sabot. And even if they can, II have at least two battleships on my side. They won't be shrugging off magically enhanced 16 inch shells. Eywa can fuck right off and find another planet.

And you aren't uplifting humanity, you're just lowering the playing playing field.

It's really about showing the Valar that they were wrong for spiting humanity.

Yeah, I'm the superpowered freak. But doesn't that make me a match for the extremely old and superpowered elves like Galadriel and her ring? I'm not doing this singlehandedly, I want to build up an army of humans to serve as the main force and eventually the core of any society I build afterwards. I also don't believe there's any chance an elf would want to learn from me at any point, or that they'd even pretend to ask.

And yes, I get your point. I'm the special divine patron for humans. But isn't that evening things up? The elves have eight of them, and they're on the order of moving continents and changing the nature of entire planets. I'm not taking LoTR THAT late. So not only am I one, but I am inferior in pure might to the Valar. Even were I not, being the patron of humanity is only making things 'fair', so to speak, in that I'm taking that mentor role the Valar never took for humans.

The point is to show them humans aren't inferior to elves, to break a little arrogance and show the Valar to be in the wrong for the favoritism. If the elves leave there's no way to prove the superior might and body point.

>> No.37122223

What's the point of proving it? You aren't proving anything to the humans since it'l be your technology and works that'll do the legwork. You aren't proving to the elves or Valar because they're leaving. And the humans will go on to be perfectly fine, they don't need any mentors.

You aren't proving the humans are better, you just want to prove the your better. Is that it? Or am I missing what you're saying?

Question about the notes at the end. You state that you can import as many companions as you have for the endgame, but only 8 will be at full power. Can you flesh that out a little more?

Also for disrupting the Chousin Experiment, Tenchi's death is not required, right? All you have to do is render him unable to ascend.

>> No.37122262

I will make a note to clarify this come next version- but it is currently functional (and I don't expect lots of people to be taking the endgame jump soon).

As for the Chousin Experiment- that is correct, you do not need to kill Tenchi. You instead need to prevent him from essentially surpassing 10 Light Hawk Wings (the maximum extradimensional energy supported by the universe).

Technically you need to stop /anyone/ from reaching that point, but Tenchi's the only real contender.

>> No.37122266

The Valar still watch the world, or they're supposed to be. The only one of those who seems to take his job seriously is Ulmo really. So yeah, they're going to see what happens.

I'll restrain my technology to what's replicable, otherwise there's no point in giving it to them.

The humans may not need the mentors, but they can't live up to the works of the elves, so the elves will always have that point over them unless I teach the humans.

How am I proving that I'm better when the other guys are all continent destroying aspects of the mind of god? That's impossible this early on in a chain. Is your view that humans would be better off without a mentor because they achieved everything on their own? That's a valid enough view, and even Finrod espouses it in the Athrabeth, but to me, it's as much about showing it.

So, the first thing we do is tech up. Room-temperature superconductors? Sure, I've got that, no problem. Here's how you make it, in fact give me a week and I'll give you a small factory that can make them.

Wait, what do you mean Earth's fucked? Well, tell you what, here's how everyone in the 'verse terraformed their planets. Terraforming Terra is kind of ironic, but hell, you should do it, and here's how to build up your technological base to reach that point.

Wait, what do you mean diseases are running rampant? Here, have some medical knowledge you know what I'll just give you everything from Firefly, just promise me to rename the company to Blue Sun.

Wait, why are you in a wheelchair, marine? Boop! Healed. Because FUCK YOUR PLOT, SON. Also your job was to create peace, not start a war, now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go stretch my legs and diplomance the natives because James Cameron is a fucking twat and there are no wolves to be dancing with on this rock.

Wait, what do you mean the planet is a pseudo-sapient intelligent network? HACKING TIME.

Well, your objective is to prevent the Chousin from proving/disproving that there is a Greater God Than They.

So basically you need to ensure they never realize the existence of Jumpchan or the greater chain. (This is a joke).

Stuff that you've gone out and shed blood, sweat and tears to learn elsewhere is fine. It's about you being the hero, not hiding behind a mountain of someone elses magic powers. That said, it is meant to be low power, assuming you take the low power version, so going 'I learn DETHPOWAH from anime waifu #2426' isn't really fitting the theme of the jump.

You do keep all your memories and experience, and you got it pretty much perfectly when you said general things a normal human can come by.

We-no, I...approve. I really shouldn't, but that sentiment /is/ what drove myself to become this after Ravenloft, far back in the past.

Around RE, we started develping a serum to prevent aging by stopping telomere decay. Around Geneforge (6 or so jumps later) we started adapting it to different species. Though it's kind of a moot point ever since we acquired the City of Heaven...

Ah yes, the ONE setting where spiral energy isn't concentrated in humans.

Drop-In, Age 26

Rolled Hell's Gate.

Leadership+Analytical (900). Very redundant, yet still worthy of being stacked.
Link Shack (Free). Welp. Between this and Terra Formars I'm definately not short on labs
Exopack (Free). Well, uh. Nice souvenir?
Dragon Assault Ship (400). Perhaps the only worthwhile thing reverse engineering here
Leonopteryx (0). Other than this thing, just to fuck with the ecosystem by cloning it

For once the conflict isn't actually universe threatening. Except-in the long term, if the Na'vi somehow figure out how to do that fancy-schmancy industrial revolution thing they could potentially be far, far worse as a spiral race than humanity.

So we're going to approach Colonel Quaritch and give him access to some Dune forcefields, some Dead Space-type "mining tools", self-replicating ammo tech hailing from Raildex and a few plasmids for improving the survival rate of his men amongst other things. Enough to enable humanity to secure a foothold on Pandora, and kill off, say, a hypothetical mass swarming of native lifeforms, but not enough to jumpstart the galactic empire of humanity. I'll arm humanity with weapons from a dozen worlds, but if they deserve life let them stand for themselves

Apart from that? I'll just relocate and do like >>37120427. I won't start shit with Eywa unless it provokes me.

In order to entertain our benefactor, we'll just have to let this Priss down gently, maybe find her someone else to get involved with. This will probably be much easier than dealing with that psycho stalker we keep bumping into.

...wow, that sentence came out weirder than we though it would.


Super-Boomer (1100). We have no idea what a Boomer actually is, but you're right Jump-Chan: Humanity IS overrated!

Free pick? Let's get to WIZ Laboratories, maybe we can try building some Robot Masters just to keep my skills sharp (yes I have a perk for that, but still)

Fusion Boomer (800). Hopefully, this'll cover anything too indigestible for Savage Salvage
Master of War (200). We gots a giant fighting robot, might as well make get the most out of it

So just to clarify on Percy Jackson style Curse of Achiles it makes you ny-indestructible and gives you a decent boost to your combat abilities in exchange for inflaming any mental flaws you might have, making one point on you effectively instantly kill you if they get a good hit on it (your choice of where, has to be on outside and trying to remove it kills you), and just flat out wrecking your stamina in a fight. You can still die from various mundane means (most notably exhaustion, asphyxiation, and dehydration) so while it grants you a major boost it also has severe drawbacks. While you'll be unstoppable in battle for as long as you can still hold your sword one lucky hit or simply a sufficiently drawn out battle is all it will take for things to go wrong. Effectively you've overclocked your body a great deal so while your ability in battle has improved greatly your ability to keep fighting for longer periods drops a great deal.

As for the structure of the jump I'm thinking I'll consolidate demigod and just have multiple levels where there are two perks but you only get a discount on one.

That seems like a stretch. It's plastic bullets, for only one weapon. If you can replicate it for others, well, good job.

Mega Man can't do it in games 1, 2, 9, and 10. And he/it still wrecks shit. Besides, it's cheap at times, a freebie at others, and upgradeable for just 100CP more, . Wouldn't call it junk.

2 Questions:

Is prayer explicitly prayer, or would people pinning their hopes on you be enough? Like, as a hypothetical example, let's say I'm in a superhero jump and a crowd starts chanting my name while I'm fighting a bad guy. Is that close enough to prayer to give me a power boost?

What are the qualifiers for having a soul? I'm asking because I was wondering how feasible it would be to use minion creation perks to whip up instant worshipers.

>> No.37124036

Yeah, and those games are really frustrating when you can't lean on the other weapons. That said, don't mind me, I'm just rolling the eyes.

>> No.37124051

The main appeal of it was to have a basic weapon capable of damaging robots without destroying their IC Chip. Though if you want a charge/rapid fire, it's just 100CP more. For charge and rapid fire, it's 300CP total.

So what? This would obviously overwrite Any stamina or durability perks right?

Secondly, this defence can be bypassed outright with enough force right? Or are we gonna be tanking superman?

To be honest, it feels like you should just pick another perk. This one just really gives off bad vibes. It either nerfs you massively or gives you an insane boost, depending on whether you are a melee or ranged fighter

Prayer needs to be sufficiently ritual behavior. Random cheering wouldn't do it, but if you got an entire stadium to do a goofy sports ritual, that'd count as prayer.

In your example, you'd tap into any emotions your crowd is feeling that matches your choice Mantra Association, selected from the list. The idea is you want to be good at encouraging people at feeling something or feeling something on your behalf.

In other ways, look at it like this: If your Mantra is Wrath, you can get power from everyone feeling angry within 10 miles of you. That can be... quite a lot. I might have to adjust that actually, but that's how it currently works.

Seems like too many drawbacks for what is a high cost perk as it is, if it was just the weak spot then it would be fine but the mental flaws and stamina decrease makes it very unappealing to me.

I'm a scumlord who has only seen the not so good films so I have to ask what can the magicians do in the setting? Also do they play an important role at all or are they sidelined a lot?

>> No.37124289

I'd say it can be supplemented with stamina perks to help reduce quite how tiring it is but it will tend to still plain wear you out and eat through resources quickly. Durability will not help protect the weak point but there's nothing preventing you from wearing armor over it for example. Also while you won't be damaged you don't suddenly become immovable so Superman can just play ball with you until you start whipping out the magic. As is this will be an 800 point capstone for demigods (A Legion Banner being the alternative capstone). And besides with some work and meta knowledge it's relatively simple to achieve so making it a perk serves the secondary purpose of restraining how you get it, because otherwise you'll have people trying to pick it up for free.

For reference the other capstones I'm planning are:
Drop-in: Oracle, which comes with built in true seeing. Maybe some other benefits as well.

Monster: Being one of the truly mythical and unique specimens, you're The Hydra instead of a hydra for example, gets you a massive boost to your monstrous abilities and gives heavy resistance to mundane damage. Maybe gain method of your choice for creating lesser monsters with similar abilities to your monstrous form.

Magician: Either learning how best to fight and bind gods and those of divine descent or getting a fragment of your divine patron in your head that can grant you the ability to use some of their abilities, with the potency of the abilities depending on how well you and the fragment's goals line up at the time.

Demigod: Getting one of the banners of the Legions, giving substantial buffs to all those who follow you into battle as well as having some extra bonuses dependent on your patron.

This is getting counterbalanced by the various prophecies and that most of the gods are dicks. And did I mention that the various monsters you kill will eventually be back after a year or two at most bearing grudges?

Perks combinations don't give you absolute invulnerability though, without a fair bit of creativity, and even then not to this extent.
It is simply too much, even with the drawbacks. The fact that you can train some of the drawbacks off or cover the weak point? Hell, this makes a large amount of jumps into unlosable scenarios since there are many jumps with only physical damage, and you can just make your weak spot your perineum or something.
Just give the other perk only, if someone wants invulnerability, they should be creative enough to figure out something on their own, not get it handed to them.
While Inter Jump balance isn't completely vital, you should at least have the respect to not trivialise other jumps like this.

You know that's going to kill you anyway? The energy or projectile force isn't going to avoid your weakpoint, it'll either blast apart what's under you or the force with wrap around to your ankle or just the plain air/force shockwaves will kill you.

It's not, is the thing. Not with the weakpoint and definitely not with the bajimillion drawbacks he put on it.

Twilight Imperium doesn't work that way. And combined with the inherent weakpoint and the 50 drawbacks it comes with, then it wouldn't even be worth 300 points let alone 800.

>> No.37124506

Twilight Imperium is also specifically confined to magic. A mage could still just chuck a rock at you. This lets you get smacked by people who can break planets with no problem, and the drawbacks can be reduced. The weakpoint is also small and your opponent is unlikely to know about it.

>with no problem
Did I not just go on a spiel telling you about force, shockwaves, energy wrapping around, and the simple fact that what's under you is going to get torn apart and any shrapnel can and will tear apart your weakpoint? Holy shit.

Here's the thing. Your complaints are silly. That's why we're arguing. However, we both don't like the perk. So if you can just say "Whatever" instead of trying to prove a silly point, we can just agree it should be replaced, and there won't need to be a discussion about why.

Photons have no rest mass, but they can exert a small amount of force due to radiation pressure.

Even then, this does not explain the damage lasers do. They damage because they burn, not because they exert force. The transference of heat (kinetic energy of molecules) is responsible for the breaking of molecular bonds, not the negligible amount of force produced.

By the time you're getting hit with planet crackers you'll be taking a major hit to stamina and quite possibly getting thrown around elsewhere. So while you won't be killed by the attack that doesn't mean you'll be in any shape to return fire even assuming an attack of that scale doesn't get through whatever defenses you've got on your weak spot.
If you're talking combining the legendary armor from Viking Saga with the Curse of Achiles I personally would say that the armor views the curse as a not increasing your durability since it's more just focusing your weakness in one spot.
About the size of your palm, the three examples we have are left armpit, point on small of back opposite belly button, and (obviously) the heel. Yes area of effect stuff can hit it, and you resist the physical portion of the spells, while you could for example take a fireball to the face and keep going (assuming it doesn't hit your weakpoint) but stuff like time slows or other esoteric stuff still affects you.

The thing is I feel it should probably be a perk if for no other reason than to limit fanwanking getting it and ensure that people remember the drawbacks. Effectively by making it clear that you need the perk to survive the process of bathing in the Styx I'm trying to limit it some. Also I'm thinking of making it 6-800 no discounts and replacing the capstone. Also especially large amounts of force can possibly bypass it by simply hitting hard enough that the weak point is affected despite not being directly hit. (Yeah I admit saying you could survive planet crackers was a bit of a goof)

>> No.37125100

Just make a note at the end of the jump that says you can't gain it through the styx or any other way. It's messy but better than offering this at all.

>> No.37125196

Making it a perk doesn't stop people from getting something from a jump. Never has.

So why does the Brothers and Sisters companion import in Megaman give my companion a lobotomy and a forced personality change?

>> No.37125420

It's meant to turn them into a rival character for you, hence the proto man reference. It also gives them near equal power to you in terms of the megaman jump

>> No.37125436

But it forced them into being someone else and your rival no matter who they were or what their goals were before. Seems like a cosmic lobotomy to me.

>> No.37125464

What I'm saying is that I'm making it a perk and making it clear that attempting to replicate it without the perk is a bad idea to control access to it. It's one of those things that while technically possible to attain shouldn't be simple to obtain as some jumper just deciding that he's durable enough that he can totally just go wading in the Styx by himself to get it.

This way I can avoid complaints of it being outright impossible to get while limiting it and making it clear that it's not the sort of thing that you necessarily want to pick up so that you don't have everyone picking up free ny-invulnerability in my jump. It's already going to be on the higher end of the power scale but I'm trying to avoid giving out freebies that invalidate a great deal of perks. This way the Curse of Achiles is relatively quantified and it can be made clear just what disadvantages it has and what its limits are.

>> No.37125471

Don't like it? Don't take it then, you aren't forced to and there are other companion options. It is a personality change not a lobotomy.

>> No.37125475

Just make it a 800-1000 point non discount if you're set on that.

>> No.37125482

A forced personality change is a lobotomy though, and the original goal of said treatment. Also, the import options are origin restricted, so yeah.

>> No.37125483

You could fluff it as Jump-chan asking the companion to play this role for a year or so. No lobotomy or personality changes need to be involved, just acting.

Alternatively, if you want it to be genuine, sure.

>> No.37125503

Just make it impossible to get full stop. There is precedent, the Katekyo Hitman jump limited access to the strongest power completely. There is no need to allow it at all. This power invalidates a lot of stuff, even with the drawbacks, so it might be best to just not give it. If people are the type to ignore the drawbacks of getting it in jump, then they would likely to do it with the perk version as well.

>> No.37125506

In my mind, jump-chan isn't an active Coyote entity. Just seems lame that the only way to import a companion is via lobotomy.

>> No.37125519

To be fair, Red admitted it was a mistake not to include a way to get those death flames. She thought people would be upset if a perk or whatever to get them made your background so that you had died. This was ages ago, of course.

Also, your idea that 'invalidate' means a damn thing when high powered jumps do it for low ones already is still dumb.

>> No.37125522

If you really want otherwise, just fanwank it. Or pick a different origin. Not everything will be the way you want it to be.

>> No.37125530


>> No.37125537

Let's not have another argument. Most of the thread has already said that it shouldn't be offered at all. It's stupid, confusing and does more harm than good.

>> No.37125545

Oh yeah, we're all agreed there.

>> No.37125589

I'll allow you to import companions using the 'further companions' rule without this.

Or just, you know, ignore the bit about the rival? If you don't like it so much?

>> No.37125608

So, in brief -

1. Slayers Jump Backgrounds Edition soon!

2. I'm wondering on a few things after that - Runescape, Adventurequest, or OOTS?

3. Ninjago, which I started out at about the same time as Chima, is taking a lot longer than expected for some reason due to shortage of perks for all but one Origin. So, uh. There's that.

>> No.37125616

How expensive backgrounds gonna be? I'm probably gonna have to cut out one of my flavor perks if there's no magic discounts or anything.

>> No.37125619

Why not 8-bit Theatre? Or is that too powerful?
