Two drawbacks that revolve around the difficulty of climbing the tower now prevent you from just teleporting to the top or something, so they aren't just free CP.

The items get 'updated' as you climb so they don't become useless. A lot of them would have just shut down a couple dozen floors in as they were.

You can only stay on 500 years after you're done climbing the tower. As it was there was no conceivable reason to actually pick the stay option.

You might want to reword the intro.

This sounds like Entry+500yrs is forced ejection date, instead of 135thFloor+500yrs is the forced ejection date.

I also kind of doubt that 500 years is enough to reach the true top from the 135th floor, seeing as some of the Zahard princesses are older than that, and they only started being adopted after Zahard hit 135. Not even to reach a theoretical floor 200, let alone 500, just to reach 136.

I mean, oh well, but could we get an addendum that if you're still dedicating the bulk of your efforts to climbing, you can pause the 500yr grace period?

Chronicles of the Cursed Sword.

It's something of a guilty pleasure I read every so often. Lot of that eastern mythology celestial stuff, demon stuff, and it follows a guy who's got a talking sword who more or less wants him to murderhobo demons. It kind of starts off weak, but as time goes on the setting gets fleshed out and it gets neat.

...but then you start getting into some serious power creep, to the point where it becomes a Power Autobahn. First it's "the sword's made out of a demon emperor's bones", then it's "oh by the way your rival has an ARMOR OF SOULS OH THE EDGE", and then out of nowhere gods get involved and the MC has the soul of the Creator God in him. It... I don't know, man.

I'm sure there are plenty of jumps that are fun, but have something in them that would break everything while at the same time being so integral to the setting that you have to put it in there. For example, Deathnote. You'd need to give people a Deathnote, but it would destroy so many settings. I think Fairly Odd Parents was mentioned as being a problem for a similar reason.

There are also plenty of series that are too new to make a jump out of, and it's easily possible this'll die before there's enough material.

And then there's stuff that's just plain weird. For instance, Dinosaur comics is fun, but I have no idea how you'd translate that to jump format.

Too furry. Outside of the character designs of two individuals, the game itself is fine, but the fanbase is rotten.

Chuunibyou probably wouldn't work - half the premise is that no one has actual powers, just eighth-grader disease. An actual jumper would destabilize everything.

Haruhi probably wouldn't work in the sense that you'd have to put in something to keep people from using Haruhi in an attempt to get infinite wishes. And Time Travel is seen as sketchy anyway.

Crossover games in general are good for pissing of people who don't like the idea of actually acquiring objects or knowledge in jumps without paying CP for them. See: every "as seen in the fic" drawback or Darkstalkers.

I know nothing about the setting besides the basic premise, but that's the strongest argument I've heard FOR making a jump of that setting. It'd be hilarious to show up and prove the Chuunibyous correct. "Your powers are sealed away, but you believe you still have them" also works as an obvious drawback.

Some extra tips:
Furies generally have use conditions. All Earth craft must be done while in contact with the ground. Wind craft can be disrupted by throwing salt through the active effect. Water craft needs water. Fire craft doesn't have special resistance to water. Metal craft needs a source of metal, even if you're doing the trick to turn yourself into a statue. Wood craft is disrupted by metal.

But there's also some awesome fringe benefits- having all six flavors of Fury craft gives you supernatural empathy (water), the ability to manipulate emotions (earth, fire), the ability to mute pain and supress your own emotions (metal), the elements all whisper their presence to you so they work as danger sense- even cotton clothing (plant fibres) and belt buckles (metal). To say nothing of arrows or metal weapons. Woodcrafting can help hide you, making your steps silent and moving foliage just so that you remain hidden and don't step on a random twig.

Firecrafting can be used to manipulate cold indirectly by taking the heat from an area. Windcrafting can make lenses and vacuums, and even remote view. Watercrafting can do invasive surgery without piercing skin, and retard aging. Metalcrafting, as mentioned above, can let you turn your skin into an inch of fucking steel, and some magnetism manipulation. Earthcrafting can superboost your strength. Woodcrafting can strangle someone with their own cotton shirt, and mold wood into shapes you desire. Most of the time people use it for bows with fuckoff huge draw, then adjust the path of an arrow in flight. Aleran marksmen are fucking terrifying.

Was going to summarize it in next build, but... Honestly? Now's as good a time as any.

I had nothing else to teach her, for all intents and purposes. I'd taught her everything I knew of leading and protecting people, and the same went for the rest of my Companions - each had been a mentor several times over.

During the last half of my stay here, I gave Elodie the reins to lead the caravan to safety. Madarach, Killer B, Adam, and Gilgamesh stayed with her to help keep the people - and the city they wound up staying in - safe. Told the four to take her orders as if they were mine, and so I, Seras, Elizabeth (my daughter), Gelee, and the Tonberry stayed behind to fight.

The tenth year? The Serpent died - and stayed dead. The crew and I returned to the city, and found that... Well? Everything was better than expected.

Elodie sort've just... knew at that point, that her time with us was at an end. And so when the Cat came calling to get us to move on, she announced that she was going back home to Nova.

And now I have but one more reason to not fail this journey.

A question about the JoJo jump; for stuff like The Hamon or The Spin, what actually determines whether or not you get the ability to use either at all? Do you only receive the ability if you by any of the associative perks? And if so, is there no potential for growth/development of abilities not purchased?

>> No.40977554

>>40977520
You only get the stuff if you buy the perks, yes.

Hamon, as far as I know, you can grow to the same level of Mastery as Zeppelli. However, the perks are far stronger compared to what you'd learn through training.

>> No.40977574

>>40977554

Well okay, let me rephrase.

It is definitely from Marvel.

The Black Vortex acts like a mirror which shows an individual what would they look like with their cosmic potential unleashed. After saying "I submit to the Black Vortex," the individual will be given the power promised. The Vortex also appears to possess some kind of sentience, being able to show visions of a future in which he submitted to its power to Nova, once he asked why would he submit to its power.

The Vortex is also capable of reverting the state of its users, taking their cosmic powers from them. However, mental or physical side-effects might remain. For example, Young Bobby gained the ability to turn his entire body into organic ice, and Groot suffered a slight change of appearance.

You can, with a little research and a complete dissection, learn how these techniques work, and how you may replicate them yourself using magic. What this amounts to is the ability to copy a defeated being's (monster, animal, plant, sapient, etc.) single strongest technique, whether biological or magical in nature, by examining part of their dead body.
The primary issue is it still requires the being to be both alive AND magical. Celestials mostly work with technology and not magic, so the point may be moot to begin with.

Added a paragraph to the intro (which you're free to ignore if you're using a nonstandard Jump-chan).

Added a note with suggestions for how to fanwank taking Arranged Marriage before Calormen exists.

Fixed a cut-off paragraph in Trees of Silver and Gold.

Added a couple lines to Charts of the Uncharted. The book magically expands to have as many pages as necessary while never weighing more than about 10 pounds, and is always well indexed.

Entry 1: An odd but apparently benign entity that has appeared in my dreams from time to time, rarely engages in direct conversation outside the context of the dream. Wears the same face but varies wildly in personality. Offers helpful advice such as "watch out for that tree!" and ask seemingly random questions like "hey, where's that chocolate cake?"

Entry 2: He is not a fan of Bill. I saw them talking in my dreams recently, and he seemed very tired and sad. I don't recall much of that one but I do remember him standing up, yelling "I declare my disinterest in the better interest of the faculty and staff," bursting into flame, and walking away as I woke up. After this he was more likely to not bother following the dream and talking to me directly... and talking about the uses of glitter in an emergency.

Entry 3: Unless you have a clean conscience, DO NOT SUMMON HIM. He can't affect the real world even if summoned, but claims to be able to teach strange abilities... he declined to teach me, said he would not accept payment for them and looked angry when asked what it would take, only saying he would teach either someone worthy or twins if he can teach them both at the same time. Then muttered something about having enough red tape to choke a horse.

The long and short of this jump? I'm going to run around and mess with peoples' dreams, mostly for fun and to pick on some of the people with guiltier consciences. And to smack around the psyche of people who are actually jerks about things.

Inevitably I'm certain I'm going to meet the Pines, but honestly if anyone else decent comes along... I very well might teach them how to use telekinesis or pyrokinesis, depending. Hence the requirement for not being a jerk or power-hungry or anything, of course. Power corrupts, and ghost riding corrupts your whip.

I had the strangest dream last night. In my dream, I flew through the sky, glowing with an unearthly light. I shone over the harvests, watching as men put down their scythes and buckets for the day and celebrated, and my light made all the leaves dance with color. In my days, I flew over the world, discovering its secrets with the help of my friends.

And there was a lion as well. I'm not certain what he wanted, but I felt distinctly ill at ease when I noticed him. He looked like a well-fed cat who had just noticed a particularly appealing mouse.

Still, I enjoyed these dreams. I wish I could stay in that world, even with the lion. But for now, I will content myself with writing about my dreams. Perhaps one day, when I am grown, I will tell these stories to my children. I wonder what they will think?

It also lets you destroy buildings with a punch and block bullets, and says you can do that sort of thing easily. I think the idea is that it's ridiculous kung fu feats in general. As for not actually teaching a martial art, Gundam Fighters get that for free. I'm pretty sure you approximate Tohoufuhai.

I think that anon is completely justified in voicing his opinions. In fact I believe this is something most inexperienced jumpmakers, and that's me secretly hoping these problems end once you've made a handful of jumps, do struggle with.

It's so very hard to decide what you will include in a jump and the more you include the harder things get. Hunteranon is a prime example of this who succesfully managed to include Zoldycks, Kurta, Troupers, Insects and lists of Nen powers. He gave us all the possibilities but struggled along the way and made many revisions. Haven't seen him since. That's not to say more is better because some of the finest jumps out there have very specialized choices within a bigger setting.

I don't think it's unreasonable for a jumpmaker to later be asked and answer questions about why some options were or were not included. Long as people stay civilized that is.

We have multiple plans for dealing with eventualities like evil robot companion dopplegangers. Here is a relatively simple one:

Step 1: Path to Victory
Step 2: Play along long enough for the ridiculous amount of stacked AI-specific charisma and AI data controlling perks we have to take effect
Step 3: Convince them to allow us to rewrite their programming and work for us instead

Alternatively,

Step 1: Shoot a Hex at the "companion". If it is an evil robot, it will start malfunctioning. If it's an actual companion they'll just be a little annoyed.

Alternatively alternatively,

Step 1: Walk right up to Carltron
Step 2: Infiltrate his networks as a being made of digital bits 'n pieces, and hack him into unquestioning obedience
Step 3: Seize control of all his assets, incidentally taking out the trash from our own utopia
Step 4: Conquer Evermore. Make sure everyone stops having the wrong kind of fun

I... I wanted to see if I'd land in Omnitopia.
I kindof succeeded...?

So, Fun Fact: I actually own this game. Like the actual cartridge. It's sitting in my chest of old games right now.
I say this just because back in the day a lot of people used to shit on this game for dumb reasons that are wrong, whereas to me this is like a giant continuous nostalgia trip.

Anyway, I'm going to OWN this marketplace. Like, the whole fucking thing. That is not hyperbole. We'll start off selling a couple (self-replacing) poultices for scratch, and in a couple months I'll own a fucking mansion.

After that I'm gonna get my ass BACK to Omnitopia, plunder all the tech, the good doctor's memories, Carltron's memories, and also merge my Toriko Plant DNA with the Flowering Deaths.

Also, something about robots and twins? Not important.

You could use a time turner I think. There's a pottermore canon example of someone travelling back in time hundreds of years but causing many disasters in the present. Your 10 years are 10 years however so you wouldn't be abusing anything, simply messing up a future you won't experience because you only have 10 years either way.

>> No.40985318

>>40985213
The one problem is that you wouldn't be able to actually do anything of value, because the Time Turners only set up stable time loops. So if you go back, all the important events will play out exactly as written in the books.

>> No.40985397

Not really. Rowling messed up time turners even further when she had that unspeakable travel back in time hundreds of years and cause the unbirth of 25+ people. The time loop theory was shot and buried after that with no hope of recovery. She pretty much destroyed the only reasonable way it could have worked at that point and now it's just magic time travel.

The idea is also to never return. You go back X years and live out your 10 years then and there. By the time the disastrous consequences of your actions come to light you're already in your next jump.

>>40985397
Pretty sure the restrictions on the Turner in-Jump trump Rowling's waffling.

>> No.40985482

>>40985422

Actually the only in-jump restriction is that the one you can buy only go back five hours, and that you must not let your past self see you.

No mentions of stable time loops only. Sure this doesn't help getting to the right era, but it means changes aren't impossibly.

However It's probably a bad idea considering this quote from Pottermore

>Finally, there were alarming signs, during the days following Madam Mintumble’s recovery, that time itself had been disturbed by such a serious breach of its laws. Tuesday following her reappearance lasted two and a half full days, whereas Thursday shot by in the space of four hours. The Ministry of Magic had a great deal of trouble in covering this up and since that time, the most stringent laws and penalties have been placed around those studying time travel.

Actually how the hell do you even notice something like that?

Step 1: Go to Bleach. Get Power Transfer.
Step 2: Go to Smite. Get Golden Chain.
Step 3: Go to Worm. Get Mass Companion Import three times. Spread across twenty four companions is now a unique Shard Power, precisely half the offered Shard Powers. Also an effective CP budget with inflation for Origin discounts of 14400CP.
Step 4: Use Golden Chain to create an artifact that bestows Power Transfer while held. Collect all the Shards, all the Perks, and all the Items. Budget is high enough that buying multiples of some items is practical.
Step 5: Try to determine if what is being felt is filthiness at own behavior, a power rush, compounded Shard emotional manipulation, or the benefactor going lolnope before I become little orphan Annie the limbless, off to fight double omega Hitler.

See, I went simpler. Jumper's Mark from the Dishonored secret ending combined with Lip Service from Medaka Box. Give them Lip Service, then have them transfer their shards. But this is better, since this way they can transfer perks, too. And actually, you can import up to 40 companions if you're willing to have Cauldron interested in you and take Taylor's place. So that's even more shards to take. Remember to get My Name Is Jake and Turning The Tables from the Animorphs jump to keep the shards from driving you crazy, too.

This should be useful if I ever figure out the exact mechanisms behind it so I can make a truly epic shield, but for now, it's still something between me and the bullets. The more defenses I have, the better.

Now, the problem is that I've got the vault hunters coming after me. Roughly all of them. Fortunately, knowing about this in advance and having prep time... well, look, I've got the perks from so many other jumps that I don't think they'll be a huge problem, after I send them on wild goose chases as regularly as possible (complete with quest rewards). I don't think they'll die during any of that, of course, and I doubt I'll even interfere with their hunting of the vaults. But this is one messed up planet and there's a lot of trash that I'm going to need to clean up. And loot to collect.
