Okay, I'm about to fire up GIMP and make a pdf. Last chance to yell at me about Kaleido Star.

>> No.41028009

That's actually wrong. There's nothing wrong with putting choices in your jump that are better than choices in other jumps and it's not usually going to get you yelled at as long as it fits your setting. Making a jump for a soft sci-fi anime series and offering a perk with stronger telekinesis than another jump based on a low power hard sci-fi TV show? You're fine, you're not doing anything wrong.

Hell, I guarantee you that if you put a perk with a similar effect as metavore in your jump because a character in your jump's setting had it, you'd be fine after you explained it. What people yell at you for is putting in a perk JUST to screw over another setting, and not because it fits your jump.

I was surprised when I rolled this, honestly, didn't expect to yet. And then I decided to try something entirely different from normal, once I'd rolled my identity... never occurred to me to take such an option before, but it should make things interesting.
I wonder, did anyone else ever take advantage of the option to replace a canon chracter?

>Age: 52
>Location: Caladan
>Identity: House Major
...oh fuck I just accidentally Atreides. Well, fuck it, let's do this thing. ...would have rather been a Harkonnen...
You know what? I think I'll just replace Gurney Halleck. And then get some upgrades on his life. After all, I can already fight with knives and swords better than anyone here could hope.
>Decadence (50, House Major)
Got to blend in as a warrior-poet, don't I?
>Sharp Dressed Man (50, House Major)
And I've got to look the part.
>Suk Doctor (150, House Major)
But we aren't going to quite stick to only the skills Gurney had. I'm pretty sure he wasn't a doctor, after all.
>Master of Assassins (150, House Major)
Also pretty sure he technically wasn't a Master of Assassins, but he certainly had the abilities of one.
>Robust Engineering (300)
>Holtzmann Science (300)
And this is where I just get greedy. Tech options. I want them.

So... basically the plan is quite simple. I'm going to go along with the plot for three years, though I will definitely be stepping up Paul's training. The heck with teaching him the traditional forms, I'll teach him the less crazy shit I've picked up, because he's gonna need it. Once it's time to go to Arrakis, I'll stay with the plot as far as I can, but I think I'm going to have to talk to the Duke first and get his opinion.

Yeah, I could unmask and save everyone. But if I do that... things don't happen as they should. And if they don't happen as they should, humanity is doomed in this universe. It's not something to take lightly.

>> No.41028186

Last thread I had some questions about Steven Universe that Wakfu answered in the IRC, specifically that if you pick Corrupted you can be fixed/healed but as a 300CP drawback it'll be really, really hard for your companions to do. Just in case anyone else wanted to know the answer.

I do have some more questions though. If we pick Gemstone Lore the examples are rather low powered (fitting for a 100CP perk), but I just wanted to see if it covered things like Steven and Rose's healing, or their plant minions? I assume Lapis' hydrokinesis is completely beyond our range, and it doesn't look like there's any other option that would get us the large scale powers Lapis and Rose have thrown around.

>> No.41028269

How do you deal with Toriko when it comes to power? I remember a Level 1 Capture Level means 10 people with shotguns would have trouble but then it gets exponentially vague. The Mounturtle Level 150 tanked an entire army of tanks and jets without a scratch. It goes up to 6090 but they get to continent destroying tier long before that. Does this make Toriko an almost end jump or do we simply never reach the level Toriko and other Devas are on?

Or is all of it just an exaggeration? When it comes to lightning 100Million Volt is in the upper limits of what is endurable by the crazy capture levels. I can't break continents or even something close to it but I can rain down 1Billion Volt lightning in a pinch since Railgun which suddenly makes me capable of taking on a lot of crazy tier Capture Levels. This all sounds very contradicting.

What amperage do you have? That matters, too.

>> No.41028329

The scale of things in Toriko is so crazy that you may as well make up your own.
Amperage never comes up in Raildex as far as I know, I think mainly because Kamachi doesn't actually know anything about electricity. Though it also doesn't actually come up in Toriko either, they both just throw out Volt levels as though it actually means something without any other information.

>> No.41028352

Well, that's dumb, then. Amperage usually has a much bigger role in killing you than voltage. Granted, you need high voltage to get past the electrical resistance of the body, so it matters too. But the point stands. You don't kill someone with electricity by blasting them apart, you kill them by frying them.

>> No.41028366

>expecting Steven Universe to be consistent
When a still broken Lapis turned an entire ocean into an atmosphere piercing pillar and later flew through space with wings of water once she was restored, all reason was abandoned. Meanwhile Amethyst is good at changing shapes.

I'm interested in hearing how the jump deals with this incredibly insane power discrepancy really. It's praiseworthy this jump was even made to begin with though and the basics all look good. Too bad the show can mess up consistency in half an episode.

>> No.41028451

Though there's actually a weird safe zone in between the muscle convulsions level and the internal burns level. If you have current over 200 miliamps but below 6 amps, you're actually relatively likely to live. The reason is that the convulsions clamp down on your heart, keeps you from going into fibrillation..

That person who currently has GIMP open and is playing with fonts to make Kaleido Star Jump is a new jump creator, so there's at least some hope.

My plan for Dune is to unfuck humanity without relying on Leto, mainly because I don't like certain organizations and the influence they get, early on in our stay, but the even worse ones do so later on too and I can't have that.

Though in general I just have trouble staying aloof when I'm involved with people. I can ignore the plot entirely and go off somewhere else and be fine, but if I'm talking to and interacting with people effected by it? I can't keep myself from helping.

So how do you fix the inevitable invasion by either the machines (if you buy into the sequels) or whatever else is beyond (if you don't)? That's the problem. Unless you can unfuck their technophobia, maybe.

I don't know. Maybe I'll pod Jessica. I don't think she'd be cool with the greater good, though. And I'm still not sure that I am. Like I said, I'm going to have to sit down with Duke Leto and have a very long talk with him. The full truth, lay it on the line.

>> No.41029022

What was that setting with the monster best friend thing?

>> No.41029046

Ea is a weapon that predates the concept of weapons. It is the divine work of the highest god, Ea, whose name it bears. The strike of Ea restores the world to a time before the Genesis shattering all defenses, layers, magic, laws of reality and existence itself. You cannot defend yourself against Ea because against it you have never even existed.

Avalon is its only or best known counter. It is the realization of Saber's dream, her Utopia. It roots a person in his dream of a perfect world that conceptually transcends reality and existence.

So to stand against Ea is to stand against a reality that never contained you and to defy Avalon is to defy someone's unbreakable dream that never belonged to you.

>why did you post that rant?
>why are you misusing greentext?
I want to point out that a jumper should never under
any circumstance (be forced to) possess either of them. In fact when talking about the Type Moon jump it is preferable to ignore they even exist because you resist them without a Noble Phantam of equal power which forces you to waste a buttload of points on a ridiculous powertrip to not die against canon powertrippers.

I definitely don't buy the sequels. If it wasn't written by Frank it can rot in hell.

I'm not sure what talking to Leto about would help. He doesn't deserve to die, that's for sure, but Paul fleeing is a pretty big deal to make him what he was. For you and your plan, that probably needs to happen. And of course the problem with talking to Paul or Leto II is that their success is ultimately fueled by precog, that they can't really deviate from.

You're mistaken, I'm talking about Duke Leto himself, Paul's father. Not Leto II. I don't want someone burdened by the memories of his ancestors to make the decision. I don't want an Abomination to make the decision, and make no mistake, Leto II is most definitely an Abomination. I don't trust myself to make the decision, either.

I want the decision to rest where it belongs: in the hands of someone who is no more and no less than a man.

Design the first page which is only the introduction and would spoil nothing anyway and post that here. It's entirely optional but doing so allows us to point out font problems, clashing colours, size issues and other things that are easily and better solved before you've made an entire jump. Again, it's optional but naming the colours like that is not a very good idea. It might be more childish but even stuff like 'beige pink' or 'dark caramel' is easier to understand if I'm honest.

Like I said, that's why I want to talk to Leto about this all, and lay everything out on the line for him, from start to finish. I don't know that there is any other way for Paul to achieve his full potential without contriving something which will very likely not work. While I've got perks that make me effectively precog-invisible, I don't think that they'd ever forgive me for faking Leto's death so the story can progress properly, either.

>> No.41029394

Avalon is kept away from Saber most of the time so seeing it in action in its Noble Phantasm form is rare. Ea is not. Gilgamesh will use Ea in any situation he deems worthy and that automatically includes against anyone who could pose a threat unless he is 1 Hit KO which is almost impossible.

Anon, that guy is vastly, VASTLY, overstating Ea and Avalon. They're powerful, but not even close to that ridiculous. A simple shield NP was able to defend against a weakened Ea, so all you need is a very, very strong shield. All that stuff about ignoring all defences is a pile of bull.

>> No.41029939

It doesn't ignore defenses, but it is insanely strong. It's a unique Anti-World class weapon for a reason. Likewise, Avalon moved Saber outside of Earth entirely, so she couldn't be hit because she didn't exist where the attack did. What he's saying is technically accurate, until the end. You can totally fight those, they're just really big guns.

>> No.41029946

Yes, this anon seems to be seriously wanking him. He's incredibly strong sure, but amazingly easy to kill if you take advantage of his arrogance. His END stat is just B, and he often walks around with no armour at all and considers all others beneath him.

Sure, it's insane. But as you said, for the most part, it's just a big ass gun. One of TM's biggest sure, but it's only special effect is it's Anti World thing, which lets it tear apart Reality Marbles and the like.

It's not really hard to "do politics".

Ea you could technically block with relative ease as a jumper but Ea is not the true form of his Noble Phantasm. Enuma Elish (: The Star of Creation that Split Heaven and Earth) is his Noble Phantasm at full power. You can still argue about its power at that point but 'collapsing reality in a localized black hole' is the minimum of what you could call it.

So even if you ignore the fanwank you're dealing with some extreme shit here.

>> No.41030315

I know. Archer used Rho Aias to block a weakened Enuma Elish and Saber survived a weakened Enuma Elish. If it did ignore all defenses, they'd both have died even to the weak versions. That they didn't shows that Enuma Elish is simply an obscene amount of damage, and that you'd simply need a comparatively stronger shield to block the real deal..

The only actual Enuma Elish that has ever been survived was by Saber with her Avalon and this was considered to be impossible. Avalon is almost the exact opposite of Enuma Elish though and equally bullshit.

>I believe Nasu said it dealt twenty times as much damage as an A++ NP did (EE does 4000 to a A++'s 200)

I believe the idea is that all NPs in his Vault give support to Ea. So that where Ea is the sword of the original Truth all his other NPs imbue it with the knowledge, concepts and ideas that came after it. They give Ea an additional dimension and allow it transcend from its original premise in order to better return all things to that original. I'll give you an example.

Imagine a program that can simplify all mathematical problems to their mathematical foundation/dogmas. If you input a folder with mathematical definitions, evolutions, examples, exercises and all things math related into it, what would happen? You have either cluttered the program and reduced its functionality OR you have given the program an increased understanding of what happens beyond the mathematical foundations and in turn the program can use this to do its job even better. The latter is obviously ridiculous and would require some form of artificial intelligence in this specific example. It does seem Ea (or Gilgamesh) manages to do so succesfully which improves its ability to return all things to the original Truth.

I did my best to explain it like that which is not an easy task because the nasuverse loves being vague and lulzrandom powerboosts. Did it help or should I try again? Did I make things even worse?

The only things said to be capable of resisting it are Avalon (being equally ridiculous) and weapons of an equal principle, like Slash Emperor (this one imbued with the truth/dream of Gaia's Blue Sky) and, quite possibly, Black Barrel, that weapon being an absence of Truth.

Regardless. The very notion that The Gate can empower Ea... What even led you to believe that?

>> No.41033404

Anti-reality warping generally works by either (1) anchoring reality itself so reality cannot be changed OR (2) quickly reverting the changes made by reality warping OR (3) nullifying the reality warping before it can take place.

If and only if Ea can be considered reality warping it does so not by changing established reality but by erasing it. Therefore I think (1) would not counter it because its reality itself that is being removed not changed; (2) would not counter it because there is no way for a jumper to survive being erased before he can trigger his restoration. Type (3) would be your best shot because you'd power down Ea before it can do any damage.

I don't know how the Q' perk works because I can't open the drive here but there is no perk that counters all forms of reality warping to my knowing. Which types they counter and which types they don't really depend on how the perk works exactly and what the 'reality warping' actually does.

You can "disable the supernatural powers of a single reality-warping creature so long as you're in a direct contact with it".

Cue me saying that it's not really going to work on Ea. It's not a creature, after all. And the only reality warp Gil himself has is his EX luck.

I find that pitting two absolutes from different settings does not lead to anything productive.

Note - the Imagine Breaker CP can buy, however, is specifically much weaker than Touma's.

Are you that one anon that insists on calling me "dude" every time? Embarrassing.

And no, I am not "wanking" him. There is no empowerment in saying that Ea's power is fixed, and not modified by riches and artifacts. Would you like to claim otherwise?

And there are beings in Nasuverse much more powerful, anyway.

The biggest problem here is that the nasuverse has an EX rank in Inconsistency. We have seen Ea work by generating air currents, creating black holes, piercing reality and I don't even know what else. Its power also fluctuates wildly supposedly justified by Gilgamesh not giving a shit. That's all nice and dandy but the result is that jumpers don't know what they're dealing with before they actually stand in front of him. Not that you can blame the creator for not taking into considerarion a few people on 4chan.

Just assume Gilgamesh is going to fuck at least 5 of your companions, bring a high level defensive perk and enough raw/concentrated power to rip apart a fortified battleship. Then wank your build and proceed to the next jump. Or replace Gilgamesh as a servant/ pick a grail war he didn't ruin for everyone.

Can someone explain how the Fate jump works if you want to be a servant? Do you skip the main jump after picking the drawback and go straight to the supplement? Can you survive losing the grail war if your master is killed but you have Independent Action A+?

Most importantly: are we allowed to to invent or usurp a heroic background based on the powers we picked or are we doomed to be nameless errors of the grail? Silly example being a high charisma Caster with support skills and a Lyre NP that forces enemies to have great pity and empathy for me when played. I'm basically Orpheus then but can I call myself Orpheus and act like Orpheus without being considered a very pathetic nameless servant that is playing pretend?

Independent action (especially at high ranks) lets you survive longer without a bonded master, but you do need to pick one up eventually if you're sill in the jump, or you'll fade away.

As for surviving losing the war - the end of the war is when all but one of the servants involved are "killed" and absorbed into the grail, so unless you've got some unusual circumstances going on to allow it to end without that happening, no, you can't, because in losing, you get killed and absorbed into the grail.

There are ways around it, I just can't remember them right now. Also, if you're in a grail war with a corrupted grail (4th, 5th, ...) you don't want anyone to win, you want to destroy the thing and end the cycle, since the corrupted grail will just twist whatever wish you make into some variant of "I want to destroy the world and kill everyone".

As for the most important question - no idea. Hopefully one of the jump makers is around to answer that, it's a good question.

With Val's permission, I went Servant and based my legend off of my actions in the King Arthur jump since I went Nasuverse in it.

The circumstance is, in practical terms, the grail reaching the required power level before all the heroic spirits die. Which is to say it absorbs some really strong spirits or is otherwise powered through some shenanigans.

Not that Gil is functionally an eighth servant in the fifth grail war, so if you kill him in the dick while he's too busy calling you a mongrel you might be able to summon the grail with two other servants remaining.

>> No.41035295

Yes, but the principle is the same - find something of similar power to jam in the grail and it will work for you.

The only war where they were really going for it properly is the second anyway.

Question for Somefaggit, Annette and Ronin|-so, Synchroncity+The Ride Never Ends in FEAR lets you sort of crystallise pure fear into a storable liquid right? Suppose you were to reverse engineer the Rubies of Grief (Technomage from Harry Potter springs to mind given there were canonical attempts to distill Love into a pure potion, as well as Artificer from Tsukihime) and then acquired Universal Adaptor to continuously study exactly how to replicate fear energy, refining the Rubies' collection process over centuries to mine the purest grade fear from world after world.

Suppose you then bioengineered a new species designed to feel fear more intensely than humanly possible to increase fear production yields and quality.

The point being-suppose you amassed this gigantic dam full of enough liquid fear to go swimming in, and then jumped right in. Really just sort of started guzzling all that delicious fear smoothie.

Would constantly consuming the liquid fear enable you to access the full potential of Fueled By Fear and Rich Man's Terror for as long as you have fear to burn? If so, how much liquid fear would you need to drink to use those powers to their full capacity?

Right, so to answer your question, there are three choices in regards to your history as a servant. You can just be some nameless drop in, like EMIYA. You can base yourself off of another Servant, so long as you can afford to be at least the same in all stats as them if not higher, you can get their memories and be considered to be them, though you won't get any skills or abilities that aren't bought by you.

The third option is a bit more complex. You can optionally make a history for yourself in the setting, but only so long as there is absolutely no canon interference. Even if it's so much as making Saber feel better about losing her kingdom, it's out. You can be some Chinese Heroic Spirit that slays gods by the dozen since none of that ever really appears in canon, but if you want to be a Knight of the Round Table, the story has to proceed and end the same way for all the knights that appear in canon. Of course, all this is just your Servant self doing stuff, think of it like an origin, so you can't really use it to set up things out out of character for yourself. Is this very strict? Yes, but I was leery of letting it happen at all, since I don't want it to just be a "Change the past to whatever you want button".

I'd change the name of If It Bleeds 'cause that's also the name of a perk in the 80's action movie jump.
Maybe up the 682 drawback to +600 because he's fucking invincible.
Anartist seems really strong. I'm guessing it's essentially a create your own SCP perk? Maybe bump up it's price.
Is D-Class gonna be the drop-in option or is drop-in gonna be separate? Make sure to clarify that in it's description.

You know what's better than drifting around looking like I'm cool and shit? Getting things accomplished.

Besides, no one will ever expect an armored bank car to be able to outrun a police cruiser. Or to be there to rob everyone in the first place.

Betting on everyone else who's racing rather than driving personally... that has potential. Not to mention, the ones who are good enough I can recruit and do insane things for a very generous cut. Also, to run like hell from the crazy gun-toting quasi-cops who are hunting me for doing insane things like driving an armored car into the bank and up to the vault to empty it.

>> No.41044983

>If It Bleeds
Noted. I'll do that.

That was the initial idea, but I wanted to see if I could think of something worse. I can't, so it gets upped to +600.

I think, initially, I'd limited it to Safe- or Euclid-class SCPs, like Sufficiently Analyzed/Advanced, as a way of knocking the cost down, and that combined with the fact that it's a general perk and nothing gets a discount on it made up for it. I don't know how that got lost; I may be an idiot and just forgot to write it in.

Otherwise, yeah, it lets you make SCPs, a la the Dr. Wondertainment, or the anartist groups in-setting.

Yeah, it's drop-in. And pain tolerance, or just general tolerance for experimentation, would make a great perk. Thanks for the idea.

Potentially. I'll have to look at what those do. It's why 682 is a drawback: It's the trademark, "fuck you," level Keter-class of the setting. Others might also involve other entities in-setting having it in for you. Maybe the O5s don't like your progress report and want you terminated at all costs? I don't know.

Just linking to a list and letting people go nuts is a little too much, though, if that's all Safe-class stuff, and doesn't include locations or people, it might be useful as a shorter list to go through.

I might put the nuclear snowglobe in anyway as just, "a thing to look at," like Dr. Wondertainment's Big-Banger, which, if you didn't know, generates a universe contained inside a cube and has glasses that let you see individual nebulae, galaxies, planets, and the things on the planets. This was marketed to kids and has a, "reset," button; morality is not Dr. Wondertainment's strong suit.

I would say if you want people to go for other stuff, you need to add in some new perks that compliment other backgrounds and start passing out discounts for them. Otherwise, this jump doesn't look nearly finished.

You'd probably get extra Keyblades. Roxas has his and Xion's. Sora has Ventus' and Roxas'. You can have the one that belonged to "that person" and the one that belonged to "this person," or however you flavor your jumps.

>keyblade restricted to one origin only
>keyblade armor restricted to one origin only

I'm not a fan of restricting perks, let alone items, to particular origins without a damn good reason. Make them unavailable to buy because they'd break jumpchain? Sure. Make them very expensive because they're that good? Sure. But just telling three out of four origins to GTFO? Nope.

Keyblades/armor may be rare and powerful (in the setting), but as far as I know they are not limited to being found only by people who already knew they existed and already had training in the Light. Also, they're pretty much the "attractor" of the jump as far as items go.

E.g. DC jump, you can buy a power ring for 1000cp - and while it comes with the drawback of you getting drafted into the Corps (and that only if you want to use it during the jump), you didn't have to pick a particular origin to do it.

If a jump has an option to import a Companion, it doesn't matter whether they're an AI or not.

The VI from Mass Effect is an Item, not a Companion, so it doesn't qualify.

The Ghost from Mass Effect is sapient, and is the only sapient thing in the section titled Items And Companions, so unless the jump-maker shows up to say different I'm going to say it's a Companion.

I believe there are also a couple of jumps that specifically allow you to turn an Item you already have into a Companion?

Here's the thing, up until F.E.A.R. I was running a tech heavy army creator build, but with the addition of "Synchronicity Event" and "The Ride Never Ends", I can now super-boost myself by literally feeding off of fear.

Coupled with a Fire Fury from Codex Alera plus the Fear perks from Inside Out, and I now have a highly effective source of power boosts and golem minions. Adding in Inkling tech to facilitate spreading around Fear Tar is just icing on the cake!

Can you imagine what an Inkstrike made of Fear Tar would do to an attacking force, or hell, an individual? What about spiking water supplies with the stuff, or aresoling it and releasing it in crowded cities? With collectors set up, I could make a self-perpetuating Fear Tar generating loop. It would let me constantly churn out Fear Tar Golems, which in turn would let me better harvest fear, which would in turn create more Fear Tar, etc, etc.

The Supplement is still being worked on. But I intended for there to be two options for when you purchase a keyblade. Either just purchase an existing one [fluffed as in the keyblade sought you out and chose you as its new master]. Or Make one from scratch kind of, pick a size, ability, and heck even import an actual key or weird materials for extra effects, including transformation types. I still need to work out exactly what's included and I sure as hell know anons are going to ask what's ok and what's not for importing

For Weapon imports I intended it to be a 'summon weapon'. Able to dismiss and call it out similar to the keyblade. Heck even give it regen if it's destroyed. The more complex the weapon the longer it takes to reform. I intended to also include a clause saying no larger than what you can carry. But still it's a very work in progress.

I'm putting way too much effort into this. Plus KH3's coming along and it will put to rest my fears of what to include in my jump. But it's too far away goddamn it.

Not worth it. Damn thing was responsible for a lot of shit. Turns out the damn thing belongs to a veteran of the Keyblade war. Might even be behind the reason it even started or at least turned out as bad as it did.

Keyblades indeed have natural levels of bullshit. But lately I've actually been going back over the series and what it can do. It seems it cannot unlock Kingdom Hearts by itself even the false incomplete one required 3 to open it (and it wasn't even 'locked'). I don't know the limits on the thing but it's clearly there. Just really hard to define. I also noticed keyblades seem only super effective on beings with hearts and darkness. And doesn't seem to (un)lock potential just 'heart' 'darkness', 'light', and 'memories'. But it doesn't seem all that accurate and HIGHLY DANGEROUS. As unlocking a heart = forceful soul removal.

That's the problem with Keyblades. They have vaguely defined limits which makes it easy for people to bullshit powers that they don't actually have.

I'm pretty sure unlocking someone's heart was a power unique to the black keyblade summoned in the first game. The one that required a lot of bullshit with princess hearts to actually summon. Wiki calls it a "Keyblade of People's Hearts", whereas normal Keyblades are "Keyblades of Light" or "Keyblades of Darkness". There are presumably differences between Light and Dark Keyblades, but fuck if I know. For the curious, every protagonist so far has a Light Keyblade. Mickey has a Dark Keyblade.
And the Keyblade of Heart that Riku/AnsemSoD had in the first game is its own fucked up deal.

Basically, the long and short of it is that Keyblades are WAY convoluted and their powers vary between different types. Supposedly they were more all inclusive before the keyblade war? Or else the
χ-blade is supposedly some kind of "primordial keyblade" that can do all the shit? But who the fuck knows, it's all convoluted jRPG Disney logic.

That's...more than fair. It's. Well, it's the biggest, baddest, meanest thing in Babs' A Light In The Darkness DLC. It is apparently the thing that inspired Death as a concept in Erebus. And because of who and what we are, it's been hunting us from jump to jump for centuries.

From what we've asked him about it, it is capable of:

-being any size between billions of lightyears tall and human-scale, sometimes simultaneously.
-it gets bigger every time you kill it, because it can apparently kill the concepts of distance and perspective as applied to it
-it can decide whether it's dead or alive
-it is flat-out the strongest, toughest, most enduring and generally killiest of the eldritch abominations there, but also the slowest
-when it goes all-out, it starts killing reality itself all around it.

Normal mage/Shirou has 25 units. Arturia has 1250. Medea fired volleys of 10x(3x25) lasers, so 750. So not even Arturia could get 2 volleys out and Medea had to spam them to be effective.

She has 1250 units with a completely botched summoning, on top of the loss of ability between life and being summoned as a servant, as no servant is summoned at their full power. The core is also not active in her, due to being a servant, and servants can only generate little to nothing on their own. You really can't get a proper level for the Magic Core from that number.

Probably why the Dragon Core doesn't mention a specific circuit amount. If you want to know how much you get, it might be better to look at some of the magi who are said to have ridiculous amounts.

Should also be pointed out that the canon Caster builds are incredibly bad. They literally look like what you'd get attaching the supplement to a dartboard and picking whatever you hit. Medea for example has terrible stats, unranked class skills, personal skills, an EX Noble Phantasm she can't use and a second B Noble Phantasm that is offensively useless.

A jumper is capable of building a far better Caster and because magical myth heroes are so common you should have no trouble coming up with something decent at least.

>> No.41049071

>Tokiomi, a prodigy on the level of his daughter Rin
No she's well above him, she may, at the time she competes in the war compare to him when he competes. However he has many more years experience by the time he competes.

This is extremely true. All canon Casters suffer in some way, whether it is Medea's ridiculous build, Gilles not actually being meant to work as a Caster beyond his book, Tamamo being nerfed to shit, Shakespeare being a canonically shit Caster. Only Semiramis has a good build, but even then she's doubling up as an Assassin as well.

Poor Shakespeare. He deserved better.

>> No.41049105

The nature of Magic means every generation is stronger than the previous one assuming they did not ruin their genetics intermingling with a random non-magus. So Rin should indeed be stronger.

I kind of want to become Waver's servant because of that so we can get him his original wish of equalizing magic. Too bad the grail is broken then already and Rider is a dissapointing class.

>> No.41049137

Personally my plans for Waver are that during my jump(during the fifth war), I'm going to give him all sorts of out of universe magic for him to add to his project. This mostly involves building him a Geneforge and giving him a, hefty, user manual.

>> No.41049151

Er, the units measures how much prana you have, number of circuits sort of refers to both how much you can hold and how easily you can use it. Circuits are also differing in quality, higher quality ones are better at holding and using prana.

>> No.41049278

So if Medea can spam so much while having less(?) than Arturia, I'm guessing internal prana isn't the only accessible source? And what measures are used for how quickly you can (re)gain prana, and spend prana?

>> No.41049306

Medea is drawing from leylines and from people all across the city, which lets her access a hell of a lot more then normal. Normally, Arturia would have more, but Medea's been gathering from the city for at least a few days before the war begins, which means she's built up a big ass store of it. It's unlikely any non caster servant would have the know how to do a similar feat, certainly not on a city wide scale either.

Quickly regaining prana for Servants usually amounts to just murdering people and eating their soul/Prana. There is another option, which is basically Tantric rituals. Transferring prana over liquids, which takes the form of sex in the series. Servants can also draw prana from their masters in a pinch.

>> No.41049363

What about post jump? How do our servants (or us) regain our massive prana reserves? If we're no longer beings that need to be sustained by a master/the grail do we/they get the natural prana/mana regen we/they would have had when alive? Forgive me if it's mentioned in the jump itself, it's been a while since I looked at it.

>> No.41049373

This is what I get if I ignore the optimistic descriptions, look at the canon examples and read between the lines. This sound about right? Something I should be corrected about before I make my servant?

Saber: Best class by plot fiat. High magic resistance and strong NPs because there's nothing more common than a knight with a legendary weapon in a myth.

Lancer: Just Saber with a long range weapon. Class skills are less useful though.

Archer: Special snowflake. Independent Action and Magic Resistance made them incredible solo fighters. Known for their incredible NPs hence Gilgamesh. Good luck finding a hero that is not Robin Hood though.

Rider: Many NPs and strong Riding skill. Basically a quantity over quality Saber. Quality is usually preferable though.

Caster: Magical edgemasters. Could probably build something good but good luck getting Prana without harming people or murdering children. Magic resistance hard counters you and at least 3 classes stack that.

Assassin: Interesting class ruined by a play on words and etymological smartassery. You could probably offend some people by turning your squads of assassins into suicide bombers. Praise Allah or something.

Berserkers: Literally canon the worst class out there. Mad enhancement is their only ace but that always ends up killing their master. Herakles was an anomaly. Maybe copy Herakles.

>> No.41049378

Yes, once the jump ends, they'll regenerate prana like any living being would, although they can still regain it even faster by using the Servant methods.

>> No.41049398

Honestly, you're focusing too much on class. You can get enough points to make all A rank Servants even if you pick Jumper class. Pick a class with discounts you want and then just build something that roughly fits in the class description.

>> No.41049426

I guess what I'm asking is, basically, which measures are the equivalents to strength (how hard you can hit in one go), endurance (your pool of how often you can hit times how hard you can hit) and recovery (how quickly does your pool refill without extra effort on your part).

So strength and endurance are both proportional to circuit quantity times quality? And recovery is proportional to...?

Did Medea store her extra prana in some form of external capacitor? Or is there like some kind of ability to store extra prana but it gradually leaks back down to normal capacity if not spent?

>> No.41049436

I find Caster rather good. A discount on a personal skill is generally usefull, and an EX rank Item Construction parameter is nice.

>> No.41049448

>Maybe copy Herakles.
He only worked because his master was a homunculus, and a very high quality one at that. Illya effectively had limitless reserves of prana, and a high output, he was still a massive burden on her. In particular Heracles would have been best as Archer, but would have been able to ignore orders from Illya if he was an archer, and the Einzbern family were both terrified of being betrayed again, and incapable of good ideas.

>> No.41049453

Those first three things? I dunno. Nasu is not one to explain things well, and what we know of Magical circuits and the like is kinda patchy and often contradicts, like most of Type Moon. Strength, Endurance and recovery don't really have any correlations, they're just generally related. The more circuits and the better quality of such, the better you are at magecraft, without taking into account individual skill of course.

Medea doesn't actually have circuits. She's from the Age of Gods, the era during and before Greek myths basically, and she can just store and use prana directly instead of bothering with circuits. Using circuits is just one of the few ways we have of really giving a comparison, poor as it is.

>> No.41049555

>Good luck finding a hero that is not Robin Hood though.
What do you mean by this?

>> No.41049718

Gilgamesh is the Archer and strongest servant in general. He's also a main character so he tends to fill in the role of Archer quite often. The others we've seen are dissapointing. Chiron was skilled but a non-human and his support skills are lost if you can't team up with other masters. Robin Hood is a concept in nasu which means most many Archers are just an incarnation of him. Shirou Archer is a plot anomaly. Basically, you'll most likely be stuck with Gilgamesh who you can't get through the jump! or a Robin Hood incarnation.

Yes, you build your servant around any mythological hero with a powerful ranged weapon but they are suprisingly rare. Your NP should probably be a strong ranged weapon too if you want to stay faithful to the canon but I guess you could ignore that. Odysseus, Orion and the Chinese guy who shot 9 suns are the best known I think. Unfortunatly, you'll have to waste points on their divinity rank for all 3 of them.

It's not that you're forced to pick Robin Hood but if you think about it, mythological archer heroes are rare and while they're most common in Greek mythology they are almost all demigods there which you should probably fix by buying a lowered divinity or something. To not even mention how boring their weapons are: a really good is generally what all those heroes have and that makes for generic NPs.

This is only about historically accurate maybe genderbend servants. If you're going to drop-in or wank something you've got a lot more freedom but your experience in Fare will vary. The historical identities of servants are an important factor and story element there after all.

>> No.41049747

You do realise that Archer servants can be anyone with a ranged weapon right? Javelin, slings, guns etc all qualify as Archer Servants.

>> No.41049798

I don't really know shit about Nasuverse, but Arjuna and Karna seem like good candidates for Archer heroes, both having a ranged weapon as their primary, and using legendary weapons fit for Noble Phantasms, I think, in either their bows or the astras.

>> No.41049811

Karna would fit certainly. He is a lancer in Apocrypha and a 'Launcher' in Extra, but most Servants qualify for more then one class. Arjuna's not someone I know, but he sounds like he'd fit perfectly.

>> No.41049886

Yeah, I'm kinda bad at explaining what I'm trying to say. Basically I think Robin Hood is so well known that he overshadows a lot more obscure options.

I think my main issue is with their weapon of choice. Bows, Javelins, Guns, Slings, ... tend to be rather generic in myths. Even when they're clearly a divine gift almost all of them stick to being extremely accurate, firing multiple arrows and the likes. I guess that perhaps I'm just being stupid because my myth knowledge is limited to ancient greek ones. Perhaps Indian, African, American, Asian, ... myths do have legendary ranged weapons which are not just high quality generic ones? Sorry for sounding so ranting.

>> No.41049945

>Only know ancient greek
Yeah, you might not be the best one to discuss this. There is a vast number of myths beyond merely Greek ones. Not only that, but the problem with your argument is that within Fate, it also applies to swords. The majority of Noble Phantasm swords in Fate are just Excaliblasters. Their special ability is just a bigass blast of magic, otherwise it's just a sword.

>> No.41050008

Nasu's official position is that guns = not Servant material. He's a bit of a jerkoff that way.

>> No.41050051

Yet Fate Extra has a Rider that uses guns, and ship cannons, and they should count as summon able as a servant in other wars.

>> No.41050058

Can I make a servant that is very much alike Gilgamesh and rivals him in power or is that automatically disqualified because he is supposedly the strongest servant? The mythological basis honestly checks out and his powers would be similar yet opposite. I'm keeping it vague to make sure no one is influenced by his name.

>> No.41050072

Obviously by rivaling in power I'm not talking about wanking but justifying them by buying similar stats and parameters through the supplement.

>> No.41050080

And Nasu is a contradictory asshole. If you want to have a Servant that has guns, and they pass the usual criteria, go ahead.

You can certainly make one with better stats and a Noble Phantasm equal to Ea. Long as you can afford it and all. Just because he's the strongest doesn't mean he's unbeatable nor does it mean he's the best at everything. As I said above, as long as he passes the criteria (No gods, no contemporary fictional beings and no things still alive during the time period of the jump) then you almost certainly can.

>> No.41050164

Since your question has been addressed, would you share the name?

>> No.41050252

I'm considering Caster Pandora. It's the 4th War so more negative "heroes" are certainly possible.

Where Gilgamesh collects all treasures of the world, Pandora was the bearer (through her Jar) of all curses of the world. I'm thinking it would contain something akin to the original hexes, curses, witchcraft, etc... so a magic version of Gate of Babylon but equally uncontrollable and wild.

That's the concept I'm basing myself on but I'll probably have to balance it properly later. Also, might go for a genderbend but that's just Type Moon.

>> No.41050260

That sounds like the best thing. I like that concept.

Should work I would think considering he was also known as an alchemist.

>> No.41050318

Could be interesting. Caster's like that always get the most interesting Noble Phantasms. Go check out Caster Hans Christian Andersen if you need a bit of inspiration.

>> No.41050343

The Gate of Babylon itself was the original location of his treasures just like the Jar of Pandora was the origin of all curses. I figured the Jar itself would be the Noble Phantasm ranked according to the most powerful curse it contains.

That's dissapointing though. It was stupid to think we could really rival Gilgamesh. I'll go back to the drawing board then. However, as opposed to Gate of Babylon the Jar of Pandora would contain magic. Are magic spells Noble Phantasms? I really don't know enough about all of this.

>> No.41050393

Alright. The reason the Gate of Babylon is not purchasable, is because it holds the original, better version of thousands of Noble Phantasms, in addition to the original version of anything ever made by mankind. Since it holds all these things, if you wanted the full GoB, you'd need to purchase each and every one of these NPs. You can certainly buy a dimensional space that functions like it, you simply cannot get everything Gil has in it, because that would be horrifically unbalanced and make there be literally no reason to not purchase it as you get several thousand times your worth in SP at least.

Likewise, an NP that gives you the original, superior incarnation of all magical spells is also far too unfair, especially since that would include the five True Magics of the modern day, which I've specifically barred from purchase here in the past. It's simply too much for any one purchase, and too unfair to allow. Even if it only contained curses, that's still meaning it has everything up to Angra Mainyu himself.

You can certainly rival Gil, just not in this one, single aspect, because it would basically break the entire supplement in half if a single purchase gave you such a vast amount of stuff.

>> No.41050469

Does the same apply to NPs like Prelati's Spellbook? Or is it only banned when it reaches GoB levels?

>> No.41050497

Basically correct. It's fine with things like that spellbook, since the majority of stuff in there is surprisingly low-mid level, save for his big summon. It only becomes an issue when you're getting hundreds of thousands, if not millions of SP worth in return for a single buy.

A spellbook is fine, a library of all magic that exists is not.
