Fire Emblem Awakening build:

Lord
Large body, black hair
25 years old
Tactics 100
Charm
Single Pauldron 300
Support 600
Roster 800

Ramona
Tactician

Anna
Aversa
Miriel

Elixir 850
Rapier
Parallel Falchion 1000

Been retconning the shit out of the current run recently due to my decision to have 8 female companions. Initially I was doing the standard 'me and a male bodyguard' thing I've done in previous runs as it makes things less complicated and easy to remember. Then I did Light of Terra pretty early, ended up with Shauphezh and 4 Sisters of Battle and I figured in for a penny.

My bodyguard is now a tall slim dark haired ninja/secret agent type from Venture Bros called Ramona. Chose the name as it means protecting hands.

Recently reretconned it as I decided to ditch the Sisters of Battle as I couldn't remember their names, descriptions or who was who so I settled on canon companions instead. Instead replaced them with 3 characters from Fire Emblem Awakening using the canon companion option and Kaylee who I podded out of Firefly.

Went with Lord as I like the Single Pauldron option, was spending most of the CP on undiscounted stuff and figured having a Falchion would be neat. Imported Ramona to give her some tactical insight and an improved dodging ability when near allies which is pretty useful for a bodyguard, mostly did this as I had a spot left open on the Roster option as you pay for 1, 4 or 8 (not entirely sure whether it says you can mix and match canon companions and imports but I made the jump so who's going to stop me? Nobody that's who.)

Chose the companions for specific qualities. For one thing I didn't want anyone who had a lot of ties in Fire Emblem Awakening, taking characters with a lot of family and ties always seems like it'd make the transition a bit harder.

So, I've been tinkering a little with my Jumper-created projects, because new projects are always fun, and two things occurred to me;

1) What's the upper limit of construction/materilization Song Towers can pull off if you take 'Will of the Planet' out of the equation when it comes to matter manifestation?

2) What the holy hell can the Lambda Driver from Full Metal Panic do? Google gives me nothing, and the only other option I've got right now is grabbing the series to watch it.

Forgot to namefag.

Anyway, I chose Anna as she's obsessed with money and will make a good CEO type for any businesses I can't be bothered to run myself.

Aversa is on the evil side of things but she's an insanely loyal lieutenant to Validar and she has a really easy redemption arc. Also she has nowhere else to go really and nobody else who will trust her so I figure it's basically doing her a favour.

Miriel is pretty singleminded about finding out how things work and discovering stuff so she'll make a really good researcher/inventor with both magical and scientific things. Goes well with Kaylee too who has more of a practical skillset for making/repairing stuff.

Don't know why I decided that you don't get a mark of the Exalt with a Parallel Falchion. Wouldn't really make that much difference if you did. Doesn't really matter though.

I think one of the capstones in the Hercules/Xena jump is what you're looking for.

>> No.44245369

The upper limit depends on your power supply and projection infrastructure.

The Third Tower, for example, was completely conjured into existence - well, almost, due to one of the biggest dick moves ever trapping Tilia in a looping emotional breakdown. The incomplete Second Tower still has all its construction scaffolds floating around - and they would have been powered by a fraction of Ar Tonelico's output. The actual tower that leads up to the Sol Marta satellite is phased into invisibility. Metafalica, the small but entirely real continent created at the end of Ar Tonelico II, is wholly real and needed their entire power supply to create.

So, I'd hazard a guess that Ar Tonelico could create its own floating landmasses if it needed to. Physics in Ar Tonelico make matter creation quite different to how it is IRL.

Ultimately we're never shown the full capability of any of the towers, but as a hypothetical ultimate example, there is Ra Ciel Fusor - a song that transforms a dying planet into a quasar and harvests its energy to scan the entire universe to find and teleport to a lifebearing planet. Or to create a new planet, I'm not totally sure as I haven't played them.

That's from the NoSurge series though, and it's not quite using Song Science as Ar Tonelico knows it.

Fire Emblem characters are basically the same. They all develop crushes on the protagonist and have unlikely hair colours/quirky personalities with one major trait. The difference is that I can actually remember who they are so I don't have to keep cross referencing to figure out which one Fia is.

>How did Frelia transform the materials she used to create the Second Tower? Basically, it was done through the same principle under which the bodies of the Reyvateils are made. So, what served as the cultivation fluid for it? The air, of course. Under Wave Science, both the air and the iron are the same thing, because they only differ in the spectrum of their waves.

>For example, creating iron out from the air would just require to apply Dynamic D-Waves with enough force to make the waves of the air oscillate enough to change its spectrum into the one of the iron. Naturally, since this is imaginary iron, once the emission of Dynamic D-Waves stops, it will disappear.

>At this time, the spectrum has energy being applied to it, and the lesser the difference in energy needed to perform the transformation, the less Dynamic D-Waves will have to be sent to keep the transformation active. This is why the difference in the energies of the Static D-Waves was planned to be optimized the most in the cultivation of the Pureblooded β-types by making them out from the same fluids as the humans (physiologic saline solution) with a few additions.

>However, this can only be used for making human-like bodies. Given that the proteins are the very basis of the organisms and because it was necessary to make the cultivation fluid have an almost equivalent energy to them, it was necessary to make the tanks in a scale similar to a human-sized water tank.

>As for the creation of the Tower, this requires far more energy than for organic matter due to the hardness inherent to materials like the metals and Yuteria. The cultivation fluid for this would be things like mercury and melted iron, and unwillingly for us, sodium. As for the medium needed to transform these things, they would need to be put into a water tank of about 10 km of diameter to be transformed.

>> No.44245463

>>44245445

>Of course, all of these requirements are pretty much impossible to fulfill. Due to this, when the Second Tower began to be built, the level of energy consumption for the project was greatly raised because it moved to an advanced matter transformation in which the air (Gas = Static D-Waves of low frequencies) would be transformed into the Tower (Solid = Static D-Waves of high frequencies), which had far higher energy differences between both states.

>However, there was a small consolation in this because there were very small concentrations of vaporized metal dispersed in the atmosphere during the materialization of the Tower.

The Lambda Driver gives the pilot mecha-scale telekinesis, basically. It gives the Arm Slave a lot of extra functionality. Flight, forcefields, energy blasts, ranged manipulation...the Lambda Driver is mostly limited only by the user's creativity and willpower. For example, the protagonist likes to infuse his Arm Slave's bullets with a telekinetic charge that makes them explode once they've penetrated the target's armor.

This one's interesting, always go for Geneticist in Jurassic Park as monster making is one of the more important tenets in every run I do. Not sure why but it's always right up there on my list of priorities. As a result I was left with 350 CP to spend on companion imports which meant either 7 imports (the number of companions I have) or 4 imports, 3 of which get 300 CP, I opted for the latter as it's better value for CP and I get some extra perks. Rundown of companions at this point in time is Ramona who was mentioned earlier, Heather from VtMB, Ophelia (Skeleton princess) from Divinity Dragon Commander, Kaylee who got podded from Firefly and the three Fire Emblem characters from the last build.

Decided to import Ramona as there's a 'notices danger' thing which is good for bodyguarding. Shame there's 50 CP left over there but that just happens if you import and then take one of the 300 CP discounts as you can't buy items.

Heather is basically a wild card companion that I more or less give whatever takes my fancy. Also feel more comfortable giving her really powerful stuff which Chaos Theory Mastery is as she's fanatical to the extent that I can't see it being used against me.

Imported Anna for obvious reasons, took her in the first place as a money spinner and now she's also ridiculously good at that.

Miriel was the leftover 50 CP. Still good though as she gets a scientific background she'd benefit from a whole lot.

Pretty standard "Student" build here. I spent most of my time studying, studying, researching, studying, and building things for the cause. Also performing wildly unsafe and quite possibly inhuman experiments.
Like, you know how evil empires often have a mad scientist who probably got kicked out of the other empires for being too crazy?
Hey, remember Hojo from Final Fantasy 7...?

Though, it wasn't all mad science and Faunus supremacy. I did genuinely look into ways to try and fight back against the Grimm. Because, y'know. That's a thing that everyone has to deal with, not just humans.

Unfortunately don't have the 3 female Sanguinius clones so I can't do the stupid Charlie's Angels joke as well anymore. Rest of the build has been posted before and makes me a Ratling Tech Priest. On the plus side Ophelia and Anna both get a lot of leadership/manipulation stuff which is useful for the politician/CEO roles I intend to use them in, Aversa is a Sister of Battle Psyker giving her more mystical oomph and willpower from dedication to something (and I can make that something me which is pretty great), Miriel who gets a bunch of mechanical knowledge and Kaylee who can now speak back when machines speak to her.

Set up Heather as a Pilot as well which is great as combined with the bird perk from Redwall it makes her a really great one and this is shortly before the Light of Terra.

Guess an extra benefit of getting some tech priests pre-LoT is that the bits where enginseers pop up and say something now make a bit more sense given there were none amongst my crew.

1. For SoaSE you choose a faction then decide if you are a rebel or loyalist in that faction. You get a free titan here as your flagship. The perks affect either the tech, units or the planet you control.

The orbital structures section in each faction is where you can buy a license to mass produce different support structures, as well as receive a free customisable starbase.

The next section, the ships section is again the license and blueprints to mass produce different types of support craft. Buy plans for a carrier, churn out as many of them as you want/are able to build, for instance.

The next section is capital ships. You get two choices for free, and any purchases you make are individual ships rather than the licenses to mass produce them like with the support craft.

2. As has been pointed out, hellishly difficult.

3. You are terraforming a planet. If you have any complications that have natives there then yes, it is inhabited beforehand.

4. He isn't immune to non c'tan attacks, but if you are fighting him then he's almost ascended and is incredibly dangerous. He can already basically manipulate time, at the end of the jump he's pretty close to mastering it completely.

By studying and dismantling the Fuyuki system. Going to take quite a bit of brain power, magic, and experience to do so. True magic may or may not have been involved in the creation of it, further complicating things. You'd then need to find suitable lands with sufficient mana to perform the ritual, and manifest the grail. Afterwards you'd have to set it up, and hope to win it. Alternatively if you have some way of hopping dimensions or such you could participate in one of the nasuverse's numerous alternate worlds each hosting a grail war.

Admittedly, this is going to a great deal of effort to do any way you slice it. The two grail wars should be enough, but if you still want to go for it the possibility isn't zero.

Attila's sword looks way more like those crappy plastic swords you can buy in drug store, to me. I'm guessing the designers took the bit about the sword flashing in a rainbow of colors a bit far and made them BRIGHT colors, which we don't mentally associate with metal, so instead our brain skips to something we do associate with bright colors.

You're welcome, though I should stress again that something on the scale of Ra Ciel Fusor would probably require at least as much infrastructure and sapient involvement as for producing a Mantra level of 5+, and is certainly well beyond the Song Science as-is in the jump - it'd take a lot of R&D.

But yes, if you have a way to bypass the fact that the created matter isn't real - which would be done canonically by making the Wills of the Planet accept it, or by creating your own 4D-NTL to sustain it - then there's a lot you can do with it.

Oh, well... surprisingly long, actually! Although that may have something to do with the fact that I was more interested in pursuing scientific research than helping the cause.
I mean it would be more accurate to say that I joined the White Fang due to resources and safety concerns, as opposed to truly believing in them, and in exchange I gave them with a smattering of what I could do.
I mean, it's not like anyone else would have me. What with being a Faunus and all.
Their loss, really.

It really was an "amoral scientist working for the empire" situation. I didn't care about them, I just cared that they were the ones letting me work.
Of course, with my help, they did graduate from "terrorist cell" to "The White Fang Empire". We built fortresses and everything. Got some freaking robots and the like. They liked them big. Not full on mecha size, but... more like Trotmobiles, if you're familiar with those at all.
Also cluster bombs, we had lots of those. And then whatever magitek I could make out of dust and aura. And helicopters! Very Empiresque. Very "Vector from Final Fantasy VI."

But a lot of my personal research went into the Grimm. Trying to figure out how they worked. That kind of thing.
That and trying to capture my "other half". A slave crown would fix that problem.

Well. Admittedly, one of the other reasons is I flew pretty hard into amoral science. Or as amoral as I could get without delving too far outside what the setting was capable of, since my research was predominantly focused on how far I could take what the setting was capable of.
I tried to make human/Grimm hybrids, artificial grimms, basically jacked dust and aura into E-VER-Y-THING, and my solution to the Maiden's Heart problem was literally, "I should try to steal their body and/or mindjack them up."
I'm pretty sure that girl didn't even know I existed before I started looking for her. She was basically the requisite mysterious plot girl.
> "Why is the empire after you?" "I don't know!"

And, I mean, other than that, I've also never seen the series and only have the jump and wiki to go on, so there may be some weirdness in my interpretation here.

Mushoku Tensei. Legit has a flying castle through unexplained means, but the answer is likely via magic arrays. Given the setting is basically everything is magic.

>Question, the ArT Song Towers need to be planted in dirt of something organic correct?
No they do not. They don't have roots. They don't do anything relevant with dirt. The reason Ar Towers are on the ground, is 1. Because hanging a tower is hard work/a waste of energy, and 2. One of the original purposes of the towers was to find out how to communicate directly with the Wills, so getting as close as possible to them involves reaching into the earth.

Summoning and Magic Arrays: The name is a bit of a misnomer. While the most conspicuous use of this magic is the summoning and binding of spirits, what you are truly skilled at is the most subtle of magic this world possesses. You can, with magic circles and diagrams, gather magic from the environment and craft it into incredibly complex spells and constructs. This can include but is not limited to, teleportation circles, monster creation, magical traps, flying castles, and the creation of magic items. With time you could even create something to rival the Fighting God’s Golden Armor. You’ll begin the jump with a solid grounding in the basics and will find the rest easy to learn.

Oh, no, I am totally a villain.

Sometimes I go whole jumps without doing villainous things, and sometimes I'm even quite helpful, but if you asked me where I am on a moral scale, I'd go with villain every time.
It's just... sometimes there's not a lot for a villain to DO. Or at least, not a villain like I want to be.

Because Dr Eggman is my idol, and everything that I want to be. And, lest we forget, he regularly enslaves small animals to power robots and turn huge swaths of nature into dystopic sludge spewing factories in his image. Just look at any of the bad futures in Sonic CD. Or Sonic Colors, for that matter.
The very next jump, after my internship with him, I was an Irken Elite of the Irken Empire. And there wasn't any slide into villainy. I cannonballed off that slope. I perfected my maniacal laugh then and there, and I didn't even have a perk for it. Those came later. They just act as boosters.

I can get up to some pretty bad stuff (worse, if I'm riding high on drawbacks), but I do try to be the "fun" villain. Pic related, it was basically my response to any moral arguments during RBWY, and I was pretty irreverent the whole time. Lots of grand gestures and glee-ridden technobabble.

... just. Sometimes I don't get up to much villainy, because it would be wasted. Like, the villains of Harry Potter have a critical lack of style. They wouldn't get it if I ran around in a black starlight cloak laughing like an opera villain.

If I'm 100% honest, I don't personify my various families as characters very often, because, even when I'm pretending to be "normal", the family is just... kindof there. I'm either devoted to my job or devoted to a cause or devoted to myself, and then my family is always just there, y'know, being normal.
It's entirely possible that jumper!me has fond memories of some of them, but the me sitting behind a keybord tends not to think about them a whole lot, if only because they have so little to do with what I'm doing.
And when they do, I... tend not to have fond memories. Like the family from Harry Potter that crammed me underneath the staircase. Or the sister from Kids Next Door who kept trying to force me to pick a side, usually by picking fights.
... so. Totally, totally possible that there are some good ones in there. In which case, I like to think I might pop in to visit for, like, a day. Or leave a note about some job opportunity I got and a huge wad of cash. Or something. But if there is, I, keyboard!me, don't know about it.

How practical would it be to go Specialist in NGE to study Angels for their S2 Engines? It seems like a cool power source that I can use to power my various machinery. I mean it is infinite energy right?

>> No.44265134

>>44265113
They do eventually learn to mass produce S2 organs for the mass produced EVAs, but in the process of studying them they suck a 200km square chunk of Nevada into a dirac sea by accident.

>> No.44265147

>>44265113
It's infinite energy with a maximum specific output roughly equivalent to a nuclear power plant. Which is actually kinda crap by jumpchain standards, go to SupCom and get a Paragon generator instead.

>> No.44265273

Speaking of NGE, is there anything worth studying in there besides the Lance of Longinus?

I kind of want to steal Adam and Lilith to see if I can make Evangelions out of them.

>> No.44265461

>>44265273
Adam, Lilith, and the seeds are also all products of FAR technology. So yes, they're worth studying. It may be possible to figure out how that stuff works and replicate it. The Lance is only one part of the equation.
