The fort may not be able to move much, but the fort is a bastion of defense.

The jump says it'd be extremely difficult to reverse engineer even WITH the powers you have, but also remember that the necrons are the kinds of "slow but steady". It's a fortress capable of laying waste to just about anything that DARES to show up on your doorstep. Sure the C'tan shards you can run around with... but the Necron Fortess immediately gives you home-field advantage no matter what world you're on because it's a fucking technological sphere dedicated to killing ANYTHING THAT ISN'T YOU.

For people who want some breathing room, it is a monumental find. Especially for folks like me who lost the Light of Terra.

It relies on volatile shields that can blow up in response to temporal energies and kill everyone.

And if you can't reverse engineer it, then it's even shittier because one of the very few justifications for it not sucking is destroyed.

The fact that you can use the powers everywhere, and the fact that they can do more and have more powerful effects than "i shoot laser and it hurted them" with far more versatility makes them far and beyond the shitty fortress.

>>38520034
That's fine, but people are still talking to me on the other side.

When jumps get updated, I'll go back and tweak things a bit, if that makes sense... particularly since updates tend to add bonuses and/or reduce costs, letting you buy extra things. I would ordinarily NOT go back to add more drawbacks under most circumstances, because I roll for success, and something like that might retroactively kill me.

That said, I did retroactively take a drawback once, when TES was updated with a proper companion import; I needed to juggle points around to make that make sense. It worked out in that particular case, but I normally wouldn't do that.

>>38520052
Depends on the change. However, like >>38520194 said I find it's okay to change builds if there's a significant update. To the jumper, those changes could have been the deciding factor over an option that would have made, or a direction they were hesitant of even going down. That kind of thing can easily change the direction of one's build.

For me, the major issue is trying to redo the build while trying to keep meta-knowledge of the future jumps out. But that's just how my playstyle is and it's a style I think very few people do. Mainly because of all the "You could buy 'x' because 'y' option is happening in 'z' jump" discussion and it feels more appropriate for my jumper's story if they DON'T know the jumps that are coming ahead of time.

Naturally this makes me a lot less optimized than most jumpers, which is why I need to get creative with my work.

Funny thing is, I don't even buy too much stuff unless it's gifts for companions or stuff that is too much of a hassle to steal (which admittedly isn't much). I have a metric dickton of money and no real desire to spend it, short of throwing money at nook sometimes.

I surprisingly don't go through a lot of money, because I can usually just FIND the resources I need from... places. Sometimes these places are legal (like a junkyard!) and sometimes they aren't (like an I'm sorry I didn't know I was on trial here).
Just the same, I have SHITLOADS of cash. Like, absolute metric assloads. And this is accomplished by, every so often, I make a concerted effort to MAKE MONEY, and then I just collect massive quantities for <x> amount of time, and it all goes into my little ATM in my Warehouse, and then it just sits there forever until I suddenly need money for something completely random, which I usually don't because I'm basically self sufficient and do not require money for anything.
Seriously, I live in my warehouse, which provides me with everything, including safety. I can burn cash like it ain't no thing. I can light my cigarettes with dollar bills.
So, it kindof throws people off when I just abruptly whip out a wad of bills big enough to choke a bull elephant. Funny, too.

Like the time I bought Naruto lunch at Ichiraku's during the Chunin exam. And he at a ton of ramen and ran off. And then the owners were getting all hyped because they were looking forward to being total sadists about the bill.
And I just dumped a wad of bills big enough to buy their little store ten times over and walked away.

Question for Marvel lads and lasses.
Let's say you got the opportunity to bond with a new-born Symbiote.
A spawn of Venom, Carnage, or even Toxin. But it is freshly spawned, it has had no previous hosts. Will you bond with it?

>> No.38522722

>>38522685
Of course. Even Venom is basically a yandere who is ridiculously eager to please and practically begs for Peter's approval, making it a redemption target, and that's an older one. A baby one would be way easier to bend to a positive goal and personality.

>> No.38522727

To be fair Venom killing people is entirely Peter's fault.
It fights criminals because it wants Peter back, and it thinks fighting criminals will impress him
It eats criminals because it grew addicted to how much Adrenaline he produced(They feed on it, and it's not mentioned often in comics but he produces like at much as 10 men)
If he accepted it back it wouldn't kill, unless it was someone Peter well and truly wanted to kill already.

>>38522727
Really? I remember it being that the majority of the species are Parasites that drawn their host to death and move on, but Venom and his brood are Symbiotic for some unknown reason(likely due to them being so close to "the mad generation")

>>38522752
You are almost certain to get along well. They tend to base their personality and morals around those of their original host. See >>38522792 not only is Carnage of "The mad generation", he also bonded to a complete and utter psychopath within minutes of birth.

>>38522764
Fair enough

>>38522778
Eh, they wouldn't provide much that way, at least not to my knowledge.
Personally due to my knowledge of Symbiotes I would bond to one in a heart beat. Teach it JUSTICE, and take it on adventures everywhere.

I mean let's look at the major ones.
Venom-Knew Peter wanted to be more assertive, so he tried to make Peter more assertive. Peter got into X Fight(changes depending on specific continuity) where he well and truly wanted to kill his opponent, but couldn't for moral reasons. Venom tried to help him kill the person because it didn't understand why he shouldn't yet.
Then he got dumped on the asshole who wants to kill Spiderman

Carnage-Bonded to Cletus, and is just like his host in being completely and utterly batshit and wanting nothing more than to butcher and kill. The two have bonded so tightly they no longer refer to themselves as "We" like most other host/symbiote pairs. They say "I", because they consider themselves to be a singular being.

After that was Familiar of Zero where I mooched off of Louise's estate before get branded an arch-heretic. Jojo I'm probably going to be second in the Steel Ball Run and retire off of that. Then there's One Piece which has me as a Pirate with the good will of Whitebeard for hooking him and his division commanders up with Stands. Worm probably has me working as a hero for the Protectorate or stealing banks (haven't decided which) in between being Cauldron's greatest aid and biggest headache. Beyond that it's uncertain.

Curves are only thinner if either the smith was inept or you pressed the armor from a sheet in a single pressing, even a multistage pressing allows for control over the thickness through curves. If you are forging the metal you can control the thickness, because you are not stretching the armor to make your curves, unless you want to. As far as the caved or damaged molded chest, we don't see how exactly molded the chest is there, however ribbing and more irregular design in armor strengthens it to such effects, making it much harder to cave it in. As for this flaw in other boob plate, the issue isn't with the boobs, it's with the fact that the armor is being represented without padding underneath, which itself is a far bigger issue than any plate shape.

Besides as far as the molding on the armor there the Abs are apparently closer to the body, thus far worse than the chest and it's using scales or chain in some places for, I suppose, more mobility, having segmented armor also helps to prevent the armor from deforming because the the armor can compress more before it has to deform.

Energon, huh? Well, a couple people I know went to Bayformers to steal the Allspark, which apparently creates shitloads of free Energon by absorbing sunlight.
Not being super well-versed in Transformers lore or even having seen those movies, I'm not sure if that's only a trait of the Bayformer's version or not, but I DO know that some retard destroys it in the movie, so it doesn't even matter if you run off with it.

Personally, I went for a less "single point of failure" method, and instead went to Animated to become a Technorganic. Once there, I reverse engineered my own biology so that I'd be able to create bioforms that could shit out energon in exchange for resources. Given the way Technorganic biology works (food becomes energon which is sufficient to fuel the body), I'm to believe it's somewhat more efficient than the standard method, although it takes more setup.
I then proceeded to use this ability for absolutely nothing, because I don't actually need energon for anything. But hey. SCIENCE! isn't about being practical.

Technorganic is nice, but I don't think shitting out Energon is the way to go. There is Artificial Energon, but depending on the setting it does OK job or it makes you batshit crazy.

Think of natural energon as like a raw beef, it's inedible in it's raw state. Processed energon is like a nice juicy steak. Artificial energon is like a gas station hot dog, it'll do in a pinch but you'd really want that juicy steak.

You can use tech fine after the jump - during the jump, just going near a generator would probably make it explode.

> Technorganic is nice, but I don't think shitting out Energon is the way to go.
Well, there's also the fact that I'm not interested in subjecting myself to Bayformers. I'm not enough of a Transformer's fan, unfortunately. I am, like... proto-casual. I enjoy a couple of the settings and am either completely indifferent or even hostile to others, and I don't even know most of the lore.

I mean, I actually rolled Bayformers. I totally got a free pass to just basically hand myself the AllSpark, and I chose to spend points to get out of it because there are only like maybe three settings in the series that I actually like AND know anything about. I'm really not the target audience for this sort of thing, I'm afraid.

Anyway, I can always tweak the genes to be more efficient. Genes are cool like that. Mess them enough and they get crazy.
If I actually wanted Energon for anything other than a curiosity, that would be pretty useful, maybe.

But, anyway, I guess anyone who really wants to go all in with the Transformers tech can go full plundering mode in that way.

Anyone with a god damn Djinn is a mover and shaker of the universe. In particular? The fucker known as Sinbad, king of Sindria. That guy is massive OP on a monumental scale.

>If I kill someone with a Dijin, do I get to keep them, or does the Dijin dispel or something?

Unsure of what occurs, really. Nothing like that's popped up yet. However I'd assume that the Djinn would not willingly go with you, the person who killed it's king.

>If I go Fanalis, how can I switch to my "true form" permanently?

I believe going to the Dark Continent and finishing the chain there would let you obtain the Red Lion form. However, as the jump-maker has disappeared from our fair shore I cannot say for certain.

>Finally, is there any advice you can give for this jump?

Hunt down the Dungeons. The Djinn are a powerful, versatile tool that give you:

A strong library of spells associated with that Djinn.
A wise, long-lived advisor that can be called upon at will.
A king with Djinn is taken more seriously than a king who lacks. At least in-universe.

There's more to it than that. You also gain:

You can't kill Caim without his dragon girlfriend, Angel, dying. That's the thing about pact partners. So unless you want the Watchers to win, you better replace Angel as the Goddess or have some other method of sealing the Watchers away for good.

Caim won't mind dying though, as long as you free Angel from her suffering. That's all he wants.

Also kill that bald priest fucker, it's his fault that this is happening. Out of his hate of dragons and his paranoia, he made the bindings on Angel, which would already be painful for her because the pain of it is dependent on the strength of the one being used as a seal, intentionally more powerful and MUCH more painful because he's a fucker.

So, we arrive in some weird ass place where everyone's soul is shining brightly & that there's cute animal people roaming around but for some reason, everyone is racist against them. There's not much to say here, b/c there's not much to do. Apparently I'm targeted by some stupid criminals, they never learn do they? I don't play around with criminals, & I leave a string of dead bodies around. There's these enemies that everyone fears or something called Grimms, but they still fall pretty quick to my blades. Speaking of which I'm able to transform my oversized hellglaive into gauntlets with blades on them. I think it's pretty cool, because now I can punch for when I get bored & with the blades at the end still as sharp, it's like having two swords. At same time I can still combine them together for the reach and for the splinter rifle function. These Grimms are abnormally growing in strength or so I'm told. However my aura is pretty strong in defeating them, it's color is Blue. After 10 years here we split.

I've got absurd amounts of money. Part of my SOP in any modern+ world is to start a megacorp, a process which is one part stock market manipulation, one part hostile takeovers, one part buying politicians, two parts implementing super-efficient robotic factories, and three parts introducing a giant pile of tech to churn out of the things. I've been looting the economies of each world I pass through for over 50 jumps now, and leaving behind wealthier civilizations in my wake.

I take my moneymaking fairly seriously, and it's basically a thing that I do always in every circumstance where it's semi-possible. I think that probably makes me Richest Jumper. Not because no one else could beat me at it, but because I put more effort into it than anyone else cares to.

You're gauging average success off a Main Character. There are a few things wrong with that.

Mostly as said Main Character is pretty much linked to fate so it'd be easy for the little rascal to clear any of the dungeons. Meanwhile, you'll note that the bodyguard and princeling died that arc.

Because there's part of my "spend fifteen millennia preparing to ruin the life of a single OC villain in a fanfic" plan that would really benefit by being able to point out how impossible his "quantum crystal" weaponry is. It wouldn't actually set him back much, they could easily be replaced in the plot with something more plausible with no real change. I just hate them on a conceptual level.

Everything he makes can be reverse-engineered by other people, he's not violating the physics of his world. So shaking his confidence wouldn't stop it from working. I guess what I really want is the ability to tell the universe that the quantum crystals make no sense, and have it listen. That's probably beyond the scope of a 600CP perk, though. I'm sure I can figure out a combo to prevent them, though. Just haven't hit upon one yet.

It isn't. Killing Curse just shuts your body down without damage. A superlaser kills by thermal and mechanical effects. Entirely different mechanism by which it kills you. No, what you need is some sort of areas of effect killing curse, which you then amp up to ridiculous levels through various enhancing technologies (the magic reactor from Super Robot Wars would be a good place to start, I think).

Gotcha, Dungeons are always challenging to those that enter. In relation to that, here's my build:

Magi

POINTS: 1400

Start: Qishan (rolled) +protag starting point, unable to enter Amon Dungeon
Age: 31 (rolled) [F]
Status: Fanalis (200) +dark red hair and eyes, superhuman strength

Skills: Assassin +killer instinct, lightning speed, acrobatic ability
Magical Aptitude (300) +close to level of Four Magi, can influence natural events with Rukh
Deep Reservoir (600) +pool of magoi exponentially increased
Magoi Manipulation (300) +infuse strikes with power of Fate- cause horrendous damage, Djinn Equip comes easier

Magic Element: Strength

Dijin: Berith, Djinn of Oath and Lies [F]
-Focus: Ranged Combat
-Elemental School: Strength- specifically, Gravity Manipulation (a sub-type)

Gear: Leather Armor with metal studs
Rucksack fo provisions
Metallic Cestus

Drawbacks: Hunted (200) +slavers after me
Scooped up in Politics (200) +involved in conflict between 7-seas Alliance and Kou, must choose a side and help

I'm taking this after MCU, so I'm figuring Berith's Djin Equip is going to look something like pic related. I'm not sure who I'm going to help win the war, but I know I'm going to try and have my companions hunt for Djinn of their own. My Noivern will be particularly interested in getting a Sound Elemental Djinn, and my Volcarona a Fire Djinn.

Personally, if there was weird poorly-explained tech running around for which the existing theories that explain it are patent nonsense, I'd start from the assumption that the theorist is clearly wrong about how the thing works, and puzzle out the real underlying principles myself.

Sit, fellow anon, and allow me to explain.

There was once a CYOA called 'Magical Realm'. It was not meant to be multiplayer, but there was so much discussion and friendly talks between multiple builders that it was shrugged and allowed. It was all fine and dandy... but then you had people who turned their builds into ones specifically meant to kill other people and harvest their power. You had people who made builds specifically to assimilate and mind-rape anyone they dragged into their world. Now without any rules, how could you stop it without it being a dick waving contest? All it could come down to is people screaming at each other that their way is the best way. Eventually the CYOA owner made a supplement which ENCOURAGED it, and as such it caused the CYOA to devolve into a steaming pile of dickshit as we became awash in a sea of murderhobos, any sense of camaraderie destroyed by the Highlander situation.

It is that experience which makes for no multiplayer here. It would immediately delve into jumper-killer builds and "I minmaxed better than you" and so forth. There would be no adventure or excitement or achievement, only the dick-waving of those who want to kill all, and those scared to even go on the journey for fear of getting ambushed and killed. It would be a massive 'Hunger Games' esque situation, only with much more shit and much more cockflinging.

A lot of us really want to avoid that. It's all fun and games until someone goes "well you suck so I win" and turns it all into shit.

Possible exception being pic related; my relationship with him has its ups and downs, and he's possibly a treacherous demon that's just using me to gain power.


Also, I tend to distribute power in other ways, so any world I pass through tends to wind up with a bunch of other empowered individuals who aren't me. Firstly, that's because I interpret GMG's Extra Allies as 'empower X individuals' instead of Pink Tide, and I've been doing that since jump one. Beyond that, I have since gained a number of other good empower-arbitrary-people abilities (RWBY's Aura is probably the most notable of these); accordingly, I habitually set up a number of schemes to entrust suitably moral individuals with superpowers.

Balance isn't solely about nerfs, anon. Sometimes, there are buffs.

Personally, I maintain that the point of balancing shouldn't be "inter-jump balance" (which is a joke), it should be internal balance. In a well-written jump, all abilities of equal CP value should be equally worth taking. Sometimes, that means restraining some initial overzealousness in ability descriptions; ideally, this should be done before a jump is released at all. That's not so much a 'nerf' as it is a part of the jumpmaking process; a writer editing their own work to make sure they present compelling options.

>>38532272
I tend to agree, actually. I've been criticized in both the thread and the IRC for not nerfing Cheat Mode in response to the existence of Unholy Heights, but that's not something I'm ever planning on doing. In matters of inter-jump balance, all I'll do is state my opinion on how a combination works; I'm not going to change things after the fact because an interaction is 'too powerful'.

I'm not in the majority here, though.

Sure. Other jumps exist, and there are 'standards', and so on. Jumps generally give choice of backgrounds, and a list of locations you roll on, and so on. As for power level, it's generally agreed that certain kinds of abilities are off the table; for instance, you can't grant arbitrary interdimensional transport (that defeats the point of Jumpchain). Also, it's increasingly becoming good form to adhere to other sorts of conventions, like offering companion imports and such to give companion-havers a chance to play around. A lot of that convention isn't necessary, certainly, but adhering to community standards is the classy thing to do.

Spell limits per day were so easy to get around. As for classes, he stuck like every class he could find in there. Yet there's little if anything on the class except for short description. Limiting it to SRD would've been more ideal. Especially those ignorant of DND would think a Samurai would be a good class. Despite it being a Fighter that is pigeonholed into one build. Complete Warrior suffered a lot from early 3.5its in that they really didn't want give Melee any good options. Gish classes were too "OP" so they were hit with nerf bat.

Later on they decided to hell with it and gave players options that totally would break the average game. They tried to balance things in 4e, but ended up turning it into something else.

5e I think strikes a decent balance, It felt deadlier that's for sure. Yet the Jump is 3.5 and I just think that it needs more attention given to it. Also a rename so that someone who wishes to do a FR Jump in a more traditional Jump way, could do so.

Time magic is helpful, as the hard limits on spell preparation are all time-based:

>Rest
>To prepare her daily spells, a wizard must first sleep for 8 hours. The wizard does not have to slumber for every minute of the time, but she must refrain from movement, combat, spellcasting, skill use, conversation, or any other fairly demanding physical or mental task during the rest period. If her rest is interrupted, each interruption adds 1 hour to the total amount of time she has to rest in order to clear her mind, and she must have at least 1 hour of uninterrupted rest immediately prior to preparing her spells. If the character does not need to sleep for some reason, she still must have 8 hours of restful calm before preparing any spells.

>Recent Casting Limit/Rest Interruptions
>If a wizard has cast spells recently, the drain on her resources reduces her capacity to prepare new spells. When she prepares spells for the coming day, all the spells she has cast within the last 8 hours count against her daily limit.

>Spell Preparation Time
>After resting, a wizard must study her spellbook to prepare any spells that day. If she wants to prepare all her spells, the process takes 1 hour. Preparing some smaller portion of her daily capacity takes a proportionally smaller amount of time, but always at least 15 minutes, the minimum time required to achieve the proper mental state.

At higher levels, going to or making time accelerated planes or certain magic exploits. There's also a sleeping bag that restores your slots in an hour, but you can only use any version of it once every 48 hours.

At lower levels, there's a variety of neat items and spells that let you switch out your prepared spells (Spell Engine?), spontaneously cast other spells (Runestaves in particular, but also things like Spontaneous Divination and CD Dweomerkeeper), and some nastier combos by exploiting dips and broken feats (involving shadowcraft mage, persistomancer, etc), along with the storing of spells (Greater Shadow Conjuration of Shalantha's Disc is an old favorite, but there are probably some alternatives that restore your slots).

My current run probably has me as the worst in my team at dispensing powers. The only one that's really me instead of an item I picked up or imports is me tutoring them in Haki and the occasional prototype Demon Tool. Meanwhile Louise is technically responsible for my innate understanding of magic, Tinker McNotfranky is going full on supertech with his stuff as of worm and is distributing it to the rest of us freely, and Babbage could do a decent impression of Commander Shepard Paragon version (admittedly he doesn't actually give out powers but leadership plus Number Man means he's absurdly good for coordination). Captain Fishface is probably the only one not giving out stuff (aside from Pacifista blueprints to McNotfranky thanks to McNotfranky's Tinker specialty). Also I've got the Arrow and apply it liberally to those I feel would do well with it (Whitebeard and Legend both got Stands for instance).

Eh, there's a difference between a jump based off the 3.X Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting and one based off a CRPG set in the Forgotten Realms. Admittedly, it's a subtle difference.

FR Jumps but not FR Setting Jump. There's a difference, it's mostly going to focus around the storyline rather than world as a whole.

>>38533045
What fluff? Literally the only thing that's FR related is the roll locations & Drizz't. Everything else seems to be generic D&D 3.5.

If I didn't trust them enough to teach them my skills they wouldn't be traveling with me. They are family, even the ones who are kind of jerks.

The Drizzt drawback was hilarious. The chance of you getting the Legendary Drow to turn good if he didn't have his plot protection is pretty much nil. Hell you'd probably have a hard enough time getting to him.

There are some very useful spells for "helping him realize his true calling". Admittedly they tend to be the really high level stuff but it's fairly simple to do. If you've got Ediect Memory and ever read the novels you can even make him think the same stuff happened. Or you can just use out of jump psionics to do it.

>> No.38533204

>>38533045
Frankly I'm with Many on this one. The only bits really tied to the Realms in particular are a couple drawbacks and the location roll. Other than that it's more of a generic 3.5 jump than a Faerun jump. Maybe instead of going Greyhawk have it be that setting is determined by location roll.

I'm not saying it's a bad jump, just that it would work better with some tweaks.

Would it help if I mentioned stupid_dog has an ~80% done Forgotten Realms jump he's currently shelved due to getting pre empted?

>> No.38533215

>>38533145
Oh. I interpreted it differently and thought the drawback made Drizzt "Drow #92156 of House Unknown" so he wouldn't have any social status or skill from birth.

Would have thought that the Drow would have just looked at him and went "A male? I don't want a male. Toss him out to die." and killed him off.

Admittedly with a high power Jumper I guess you could just directly mind control half the place or massacre enough Drow until you stamp them into submission...

Thank you, we finally agree on something. It's horrible from the perspective of creator's rights to try and dash their work apart and throw it out for personal reasons just so your friend can replace it. Things would rapidly go downhill for us if it started happening, and fewer people would want to write for you if they knew you'd do this to them.

There is no double standard because this isn't the same situation.

In one, two people knew nothing about each other and released the jumps nearly at the same time.

In this, one jump was finished and released weeks ago, now some people are trying to campaign that it's okay to spit into a jump maker's eye and throw their work out so their friend cane make their own version to replace it. This second jump is not even finished.

>> No.38533432

>>38533402
It was considered fine because both were reasonable people and the jumps were very different, and the fact that neither maker knew that the other was done. However, if we did allow this, eventually we'd have people altering other jumps or making versions that give powers that suit specifically them. It's best to just move past it

I have no problem with there being subsetting jumps. The only niche that the current FR jump has is in unlimited companion import. I chose to ignore the "top 1%" perks, because frankly, for those things to be consistent across Jumps would just skew things.

I also didn't realize, coming in with no 3.5 understanding, that Master Craftsman was a General Feat. At which point I didn't know if the 300 CP perk was supposed to overlap that, or if it was something entirely different.

If OP is around on this, is there any clarification?

And that, is why y'all fuckers don't have a Bastion jump.

...But seriously. If a jump is obviously better AND the author agrees, isn't it alright to replace the damn thing? We lost, like, several settings this way already. It's the same argument as with making end-jumps - settings are lost forever.
