It's really bad, though. I mean, Jesus, look at some of the perks. "You can actually use more than one skill at once." Thanks, that's really worth a capstone. What is a subclass, anyway? Huh, do I hear crickets? Oh well. Let's see... You can use skills in different ways than intended." Man, what a relief. It's not like that's what the second fucking arc is about. Major Guild Leader, Nobility, and Royalty are totally each distinct enough to be worth filling three out of your twelve slots for perks.

Not that anon, but I would like to see meaningful perks. Lvl 90 could be a similar perk to Lvl 100 in Overlord and would include the items that high level players have that are "unavailable" to lower level player who did not obtain them before the apocalypse. The ability to use the system to equip items that were made post apocalypse would be a nice perk too.

thats why its a WiP. More to the point its an old WiP

Honestly, what I'd like to see is no People of the Land background. I'd like to see four different backgrounds focusing on players - Drop-In based around the people who just joined like Minori and Tohya, one for Crafting players, one for Raiding players, and one for Social players and/or Shiroe-type manipulators. I'd like for the perks to actually feel like things you'd see in the show, rather than just random silliness and things you could already do just by being part of the world. I'd also like to see the descriptions of the races and classes used to flesh out the flavor of the world rather than just shorthand and "go check the wiki."

There are dozens of times while reading this that I thought to myself "And here is how my jumper would change that", but honestly, most of the events are worth stopping well before they happen. I just have to fight the Simurgh at Canberra, dismantle the Slaughterhouse Nine (Bonesaw gets help, Burnscar gets separated from her shard and therapy), keep Mouse Protector safe, make sure Dragon and Armsmaster get together, separate Noelle from her shard, get the Travellers home, make sure Foil and Parian get together, out the corruption in the Protectorate without causing the downfall of superheroes in general, help Eidolon come to terms with how his power works and what it's done, and find a date for prom. I am not going to prom alone again this year. I have phenomenal cosmic power, it shouldn't be this hard to ask a guy out.

A lot of other story's shifted because of these actions. I made sure to keep certain character's safe, though. Specifically, I mean. I took Panacea under my wing and helped her with a lot of her hang-ups. Taylor still ended up a warlord, it was just mostly spent fighting other gangs than the Slaughterhouse Nine. Theo got saved from his family.

The death toll for the Leviathan fight was less than 10%, and those were mostly people Armsmaster let die, which I called him out for alongside Taylor. I did let the actual city itself drown, just not the people. The damage wasn't that different from canon, actually.

I didn't take a power, but:

>Parahuman (Roll 1d12 for power category, then 1d8 for power. 200cp to choose either category, or the power within a rolled category, 400cp to choose power. Optional):
means you are correct.

Choosing for companions is forfeiting free CP, so I just rolled for one of them to get some Cauldron Vials. Those are strictly Toby's to hand out how he sees fit, so they should see some use among the crew of the Kerykeion and Light of Terra, and maybe to friends he makes in jumps. He doesn't see a reason to give me one, though.

>Full Line Up (300cp): You may import up to 8 companions, each one gaining an origin for free, including their associated freebies. Beyond this they have an additional 300cp to spend, but in all other aspects function as the Cape import above. They may forfeit the free cp to instead choose a power rather than rolling. If you wish you may purchase this multiple times, each purchase letting you import another 8 companions.

I am too buzzed to competently answer questions, but I'll try anyhow.
My desire for friends and family is one of the parts that I started with, and hasn't changed. I recently moved away from my family, and being the eldest of a rather large gaggle of sisters when I started my chain, and I was lonely.
Having met met my Starter/Wife, and Soulmerging with them as time went on, we became the center of a enormous family of companions. And now I dote on companions like they're my children/little sisters.
The act of doing these things keeps me grounded. Especially in the face of another of personality traits.
I like to mess with people.
I like to confound people.
I like the look of incredulity as context breaks down around them.

Which can be dangerous for lategame jumpers, so, soulsynced waifu keeps my head on my shoulders. I try to keep the cuh-razy for when we need it.

>You may as well have fallen out of the sky for all you know what's going on. You find yourself in your Body-Mod form
Wording it like that makes me think that I’ve lost access to my other alt forms. Is that the case, or are you just trying to say that we don’t have a form granted by this jump for this jump? If the that is the case, perhaps change the wording to state that the jumper arrives in whatever form he or she left his or her last jump in.

Personal preference, but I hate when jump docs link me to sites outside of that doc in order to read about the jump. Might not be a big issue for some folk, but I know we do get people who have shitty connections who download things on wifi to read and fiddle with while they’re out and about.

Destiny seems far more powerful then the other capstones, basically a nerfed PTV, and should be reduced or changed. I Hope You Choke On It is the opposite, in that it's got much less use then the other capstones, not including the PTV-lite. That one should probably be made to be something stronger.

Oh, no, absolutely not. They're just placeholders for the moment.

In order:
1. The wording is indeed a little rough on it, but no, you don't lose access to anything, you just don't get a Race and Background.
2. See above.
3. True, but I just couldn't ignore the ton of Backgrounds the game itself had. Some of them were just too much fun. I wasn't planning on giving away too much in the way of stats though.
4. Yep, true.
5. Both of those are pretty much placeholders at this point, but I agree.

Thanks guys.

>> No.47311166

>One Raindrop Raises the Sea
So, just being pedantic here, the way its worded it sounds like your reputation, as an absolute value, is tied to whether or not you solo things. Does that mean that if you solo something on a Monday you're a hero, and then if you work with a group on Tuesday you're forgotten? I doubt that's what you're going for, but I want to be clear. If you're not going for that, maybe you could tease the wording such that your reputation /increases/ based off of group size and that working with a group will not ipso facto hurt your aggregate fame / reputation because of this skill.

>I Hope You Choke On It
This is the weakest capstone out of the bunch. I'm not familiar with the property, and it sounds like you're channeling something specific here, but measured against the other capstones it feels a bit meh.

All in all, this is solid. There's a bit too much white space in it for my tastes, I like jumps that are a bit more compact, but outside of that and the comments above this seems pretty neat.

Good job, Jane.

Adding to what that other anon said, you could bump up the other capstones to match Destiny.

Looks pretty good to me so far.

Though I guess I'd say don't forget that the inverse applies to Magic versus Technology as well, although most people don't usually see it.
But I remember playing through the game, if your tech score was high, your magic would be really weak.
I ALSO remember walking through the Vendigroth Ruins as a high end magic character and actually taking periodic damage every couple rounds just because of the high end tech that was everywhere, which made it probably the most dangerous area in the game for me. It was actually an unsettling experience, what with my ridiculous magical powerhouse that nuked everything up to that point.

Sorry, I worded that wrong. I meant to say that it can only increase if you solo something, but not decrease because you work with a group.

After watching The Flash I thing I've come to realize that Super Speed is the best power ever. From the perspective of a speedster everything is in slow motion, or at least they think and react so quickly that it might as well be. If someone tried to blow up an entire city to kill you, you could simply outrun the blast! Seriously with the exception of other speedsters they have to make up reasons why he can't just speed blitz everything just just to give Barry any challenge.

I was planning to use the Vendigroth Ruins as one of the starting locations, and I was going to make a note there about the extremely advanced tech actually interfering with magic. But you're right, I am going to need to clarify that moving forwards. Technology interfering with magic just doesn't get much screen time, even when you're playing a high tech character like I was.

So... from these five panels, are we meant to infer that Deathstroke is a speedster even better than the Flash, so long as the former stands in one place? Or is that what you meant by "make up reasons", i.e. the writers pulled Deathstroke's move out of their ass?

The detonation velocity of C5 plastique, if it's similar to C4, would be (roughly) 8km/sec or about Mach 23 at STP, and Deathstroke manages to move his sword from his front right across to his left and then reverses it to impale Wally behind him in the time (probably under a millisecond) it takes for the plastique to finish exploding.

Destiny was meant to just give you a top-level mental checklist. I can play with the wording to reflect that.

For One Raindrop, I definitely see the need for clarification on that. I feel like the only way to buff Choke is to either make it a general regen perk or shorten the time it takes to regrow a limb. And it's funny, I was told that a previous edition was too cramped.

I see Dinotopia as a low-power, low-to-mid-danger Jump that would be good for the beginning of a Chain, and I was trying to keep perks and such low-key to reflect that.

Except not really because Shonen manga is one series written by one author whereas big 2 characters are usually in multiple series at a time written by multiple authors and have had numerous different incarnations and writers over the past 50+ years. Consistency over that time period or just between multiple writers in general is practically impossible.

>I feel like the only way to buff Choke is to either make it a general regen perk or shorten the time it takes to regrow a limb.
Like said, I don't know the property but I don't think that'd be a bad way to go at all. Just make it a good regen perk, as its a capstone.

>And it's funny, I was told that a previous edition was too cramped.
Eh, there's a balance and I can be nitpicky about those things. My biggest gripe in that respect would be the pages where you're only using a quarter of the page and the rest is blank. Lots of unnecessary scrolling that way.

>low-power, low-to-mid-danger Jump
If that's what you're going for, and that does come across in the doc, then I think you've more or less nailed it. Just balance a few of those perks out, relative their in jump peers, and you should be good to go.

>> No.47311768

That's pretty much everyone's reaction to the fuckin' Speedforce. Honestly, just don't think about it too hard.

- Speedforce allows Barry Allen to run through Space-Time, both literally and figuratively.
- Barry Allen at one point while running down the side of Mt. Everest slipped and fell through the Dimensions into Earth Two, kick starting the Crisis on Infinite Earths.
- As mentioned earlier Wally West outran Speedster Death.

Speed Force is connected to every universe, so when he outran Black Racer (Speedster's personification of Death) Flash was tapping into this Speed Force. Which is why he was able to exist outside of creation (his universe) because he was partially in the Speed Force which exists outside of all universes. Black Racer is death, so without life there is no death. Which is why Black Racer was defeated, because it's not a Speed Force entity.

Just like Jumpers having waifus, comic book writers have their pet favorites. The idea that Superman is suppose to be "best at everything" often appears. Dates back to the Silver Age where he was just a plot device not a character.

Same way Bat God came to be, Batman lovers got chance to write a series of comics for Batman. So they're jacking themselves off over how awesome Batman is. Then when next guy comes along, he's like "fuck Batman" and goes out his way to make Batman look like a jobber.

Well, not part of this discussion, but I kinda want to chime in on that. Just because a choice is quantifiably better doesn't mean that it's necessarily more meaningful.

I didn't take Speedforce on the Arrowjump because that power / powerset doesn't make any sense for my build. Sure, it's a big power gain, but it wouldn't fit with the various themes that I'm running so I avoided it. So while on one hand I get what you're saying about intra-jump balance, and believe me that's something I'm conscious of, I want to point out that different jumpers prioritize different things and as such assigning meaning based off of power isn't the best way to go.

If we were talking about a stand alone CYOA, I might be more inclined to agree with you, though.

>> No.47312283

Filthy normalscum, die.

>> No.47312302

I know I am going to regret making such a wide-spread and vague ruling. I just fucking know it. Buuuuut:

You can safely consider your offensive power to be somewhere between city-level and country-level. I'd say state-level, but I'm pretty sure people don't use that as a classification.

Offensive power is not the same as destructive power, mind you. Even if your attacks technically have the power to destroy multiple cities, they are not necessarily widespread enough to do so.

Give some feats for the two and I can give you something concrete to work with.

If you mean in general, I can do that too, but I'd need like an hour to research stuff to find the right characters to powerscale from and make sure I'm not high- or lowballing them.

>> No.47312303

Yeah, but what niche is vigilante filling? You've got backgrounds offering incredibly useful magic, technology, and immense social influence... And then a background which is literally a freebie with a 600 CP drawback, and whose 300 to 600 CP skills are regularly seen elsewhere cheaper and better. I don't think I've seen anyone go Vigilante, and I don't blame them.

>> No.47312307

Ravenloft has an item where it'll save you from death twice.

Lovecraft has a perk that should you die you instead go into a coma for a week to recover.

I think its Kid Radd that has a Boss Form perk or some such that locks 9 out of 10 perks but should someone kill you, it unlocks all your perks and you are back at 50% HP.

And then a bit of an obscure one is Tales of Demons and Gods. Should you advance past the Legend Rank, you can start cultivating Heavenly energy. Once you've obtained enough and broken into the heavenly realm ranking system, you can form an extra life.

You set the life down somewhere and as long as you are within like 1000 Miles of it when you die, the life is lost instead and you don't die.

Damn, we're nerfed that low post jump?

It makes no sense for SMT to be made weaker than that, especially since it being higher power better represents the setting. I'm not questioning how you've balanced the jump internally, I just think you over compensated with the nerf.

Someone who just wants to do the Arrow bit, I imagine. Not everyone who builds posts, I know that I don't post my builds because I play fast and loose with costs in order to make the narrative of the jump fit my overall jumper story.

The problem is that the Vigilante tree is suppose to represent the martial artists of the Arrowverse and they're canonically the weakest out of that group. So, from a design perspective, where do you err? Do you buff them to put them on par with the other heroes or do you nerf the other heroes so that they're on par with the martial artists?

It's not a great tree, I'll give you that, and I don't want to get mired into defending it, but I just wanted to chime in and state that just because a tree isn't as balanced as its peers doesn't mean that it's not a meaningful choice.

People didn't go Reyvateil in Tonelico, when KOTOR finishes the OT jump I'm going to be going BH because I think that'll be the more fun experience.

Like said, I get where you're coming from, but jumpchain doesn't need to be balanced in the same way, to the same degree, that something like an MMO is balanced where all the classes and choices present quantifiable parity.

PTV would get better about the paths it gives you, adapting to how you do things, your preferences, giving you tweaks in the objectives that you didn't realize were things you'd want, and yes, slowly giving you better advice and more detail. Going from "Clear Building Y of targets, approach from the south side to minimize possibility of being spotted by watchers" and similar stuff, to adding in more specific hints like "that window is ideal to put yourself in the best position to engage the first targets"

It's more of an art than a science, and you're never really going to get Contessa level stuff, just better hints and tips to go along with the path basically.

In the theoretical long term you could gain more slots, but mostly it's the powers that you get being better, them taking shorter time periods to pop up, being better suited for your preferences and goals and whatnot, having more influence over what you get if you put in the effort, etc.

Complete Arsenal and Path to Victory both are far ranging enough that they definitely would seem slower to improve than others simply due to their nature.

>Dark Falcon, with the power to guess! is too caught up with being mysterious to use her power to it's full extent.
>Deep End, with the unstoppable bullets! is just using this whole super-villain thing to support her rap career.
>Hologra, the master of illusions! Regularly uses his powers to simulate sex for his compatriots when asked.
>The Imaginary Girls! They can be whatever they want! Even doctors!
>Mixup, with the power to warp space! Really pisses off Vista!
>The Tinker Tailor, with the power to steal your shit! Mostly just buys it, though.
>Mortes Ex Machina, he's made from guns! Also, a camera and jetpack!

There's some good synergy in this group. Sensorium and Topography Manipulation are amazing battlefield control. Reverse Engineering and Assimilation makes Toby the deadliest motherfucker on any given non-magic battlefield. Inference Engine and Imaginary Form or Sensorium is great for targeting weaknesses of specific capes or making hasty escapes.

And really, that was all before the jump started. They still had a reputation, and parlayed that into working for Coil, after I cured Noelle and got the Travellers home, of course. I informed them that they should give priority to Taylor's growth, and they got that mixed up and took on mentor roles for her. They still made her pull the trigger during Coil's execution, though. Eventually, through careful perk usage, they formed a sort of evil wards program for children who wanted to be villains. It was actually pretty cute.

Yes, and they grow additively. So it's not leaps and bounds like you'd see with training perks and whatnot letting you push abilities. It's a consistent and constant rate of "X or whatever" piling up over time.

Having objectively factual information that leads to your desired end goal is pretty great anon. Even the smartest people have their own biases and limits that color things. Knowing with complete accuracy a list of goals to accomplish in order to arrive at the end result you desire with just the push of a mental button is pretty crazy.

Plus, it's a form of precognition. It's not listing out a list of conditions that would mean that you've done it, it's listing out steps that through cause and effect arrive at that desired end result.

Anybody can know that "acquire this much startup money, network with these influential people, strategize, etc" is a recipe for a successful business. The guy with PTV gets a list of objectives that lead to that exact result, not just blurry common sense and practical goal setting.

So what perks are best for improving rolling attacks?

>> No.47313892

Electrical Roll from Sly Cooper lets you electrify yourself as you roll around. Aside from that shapeshifting to have spikes or other 'aura' effects that target nearby enemies. I'm sure there's a vampire aura affect somewhere but can't recall where I saw it. Oh, Saint's Row has some aura's you can get with the Halo.

360' sight from something like the Byakugan might help, and Akimichi bloodline also from Naruto can turn gigantic and roll around at high speeds.

The only other things I can think of are elements - getting a good elemental power you can release as you roll, such as those from LoSS or inFAMOUS would be good. I guess if you can find speed perks that are more along the lines of temporal acceleration rather than running faster they'd help. Magicka has a Haste spell that might work for it, and can cast 'armor' on yourself that can do damage to people you touch. It's really fun running around killing enemies with your super speed, so it would likely work quite well for what you're doing.

Hope these help.

>> No.47314039

Oh, also biological manipulation to have organic or cybernetics to have implanted drug or spore dispensers. Roll by and unleash a cloud of sleeping spores, or knockout gas, or flat out poison people to death. Could get some that let you do extra damage if you actually hit things.

Also I thing a recent jump... X-men maybe? Has a power to let you shoot spikes from your body.

Mario has the metal form power-up that could be good if you're not already a super dense *thing*.

There are a couple of Worm powers that would help hit harder, and even the Path to Movement would be useful to steer your rolling.

Borderlands has shields that trigger if someone hits you in melee, possibly if you slam into them too? If not they have shields that increase your melee damage while down, so it helps you get close and you then do more damage once it's down.

Clone abilities such as the Naruto clones, or Teen Titans Self Duplication, or whichever Alice jump has Tweedlefied would provide you with extra you's to roll at people.

Think that's all I can think of... For some reason I'm thinking something from Deus Ex would help? I guess there was the typhoon or whatever the ball bearings exploding from you was called.

It would be more accurate to say that I was a secretary or lieutenant. The true hive leader was, of course, Anon.
I happily scouted for resources, remembered things Anon had occasionally forgotten, performed crazy psychotic science experiments, and hung around the base and did cute things.
It was hardly the first stint as a sidekick I'd ever done, although it was probably the most existentially terrifying. My main contributions were preventing Anon from dying in the early game and... actually that was about it.

Although I was able to do lots of experiments with both the trampled Terran tech of Tarsonis as well as biogenetics and engineering in general. Together we came up with all kinds of cool ideas.
Anon said he liked the way I laughed when I did science. I said I liked the way he did science.

Fun facts- according to Metatron in Supernatural, God had to put in significant time and effort to make the single universe that the show takes place in.

Not just that, but his Archangels, of whom apparently top out at continent level power (Lucifer and Michael going all out would have burnt half the planet's surface), were needed to help him beat the darkness. So apparently God and the Darkness are weak enough that 2 continent busters and 2 significantly weaker angels were enough to let God win.

One of my theories on how 'universe-creating' things like that and Dresden Files "can blow up galaxies" Archangels aren't actually that powerful: there's a marked difference between faraway galaxies and the Earth, at least on a metaphysical level.

On the subject of SMT-I understand it's unlikely we'll get a conclusive ruling with DSanon being missing and SMTanon being asleep so this is just some speculation for now but-does anyone have any idea how SMT "levels" stack across jumps? If you've been an Overlord of Bel and then go on to become a Herald/Chosen of Raphael with Dormant Power, does your "level cap" simply default to the highest one you have? Or do they stack additively?

If they stack additively, since IIRC SMTanon said a Herald would be somewhere between Raphael and Gabriel that would give a mean level of 94 (rounded up) based on their levels in SMT 1, so d'you add that to your "level cap", the 77 from Dormant power or both?

I'm still trying to process the idea that God would apparently have no problems if a pair of mid-high level toohoos, the Japanese cold and Akuma (Street Fighter) showed up to fight on his side.

In all fairness though, Archangels can apparently casually time travel so perhaps there's a bit more to the universe-and by extension, the folks who built it-that means the eye.

I don't agree with PS238's design principles at all, my position is that a drawback based on an event/character involved in the franchise is nowhere near as bad as the premise of "any power, any setting" as a perk-or any artifact in the case of that neckbeard cosplay magical realm /tg/ original setting. I am not, of course, the author and I'm not trying to "fight his battles" for him, I'm simply pointing out there are other jumps considered finished which have similar drawbacks and that I personally think the issue isn't that big a deal given it's set in the same continuity; remember that guy in Nocturne heavily implied to be Aleph's tortured reincarnation?

Biomega, Ar Tonelico, Supreme Commander, Code Lyoko, the Matrix and Blame! all have great options for writing AI. Special mention to Blame! and the Matrix where you can configure said intelligence to be a copy of your own.

>material, power and self replicating

Depends on what approach you want to go for. The solar harnessing technology from The Mysterious Cities of Gold is pretty great as a replenishable supply. A source of magic and a magitech perk could also keep 'em topped up with energy for useful work; HP, FF6, Chrono Trigger and Storm Hawks are particularly good for this. Correspondence Course from Fallen London gives you a perpetual source of heat energy, amongst other things. The science of Symphogear runs on phonic energy i.e. the emotional energy of songs if that's more your style. And Minecraft has both some decent energy generator systems, and a style of alchemy which can be used to create resources out of nothing which is compatible with technology.

If you want to buff the nanites themselves? The grey goo from Gargoyles can do some really impressive things with far less energy than it should realistically take. Sohon from Legacy of the Aldenata's psychic nanites can work up strange matter to build things normal matter can't make. Biomega's RPIP can build absurdly vast amounts of matter from thought energy alone, and Iji's brand of nanotechnology specialises in stealing energy from opponents for all kinds of useful work. Last but not least GUNNM's Karmatron Dynamics and the Regenerator Nano together can apparently break the law of thermodynamics outright according to Mir although I forgot the reasoning why so-take that with a grain of salt.

Supreme Commander has the Paragon. It's roughly the size of a soccer stadium, quite fragile (admittedly, only by the standards of its setting, which probably means you could bounce a fully laden 747 off it), and the interior is basically made of explodium (breaches are Bad News), but for a purely technological method of tapping ludicrous amounts of energy and mass in a way that gives entropy the middle finger, it's hard to beat.

You should base the jump on the setting, not on jokes made in the setting. The rest of the jump makes no reference to out of setting or cross setting stuff, leading me to believe you are once again full of bullshit in claiming the entire series is based on cross setting parodies.

Bancho, he's saying that the original work doesn't have Hokuto Shinken nor any number of abilities, techniques and miscellaneous specific things from other settings that have not crossed over with your favorite webcomic

You should have set some sort of guidelines based on canon examples of abilities depicted in the setting and explained their capabilities in a detailed manner but in hindsight I imagine that level of detail is inevitably beyond you.

Also to expand on what >>47315517 said, Discworld parodies certain aspects of D&D and mythological archtypes but Discworld doesn't let you buy any D&D spell ever or let you make a companion out of any mythological figure reimagined with a punny name.

Discworld is Good Example you should emulate and look up to.

So you have a crossover with DC. DC has crossovers with hundreds of settings yet it doesn't offer a Witchblade or the hammer of Thor. Your setting is not special Tera, realise that and try to improve your jump.

And resemble does not have to be "Give people the exact thing from another jump". That's not the parody, that's you wanting things you couldn't otherwise get. Medaka Box manages to be a parody of shounen without giving people Chakra or Zanpakutou, why is your setting treated any different? You certainly didn't have this crossover perk at the start of the jump, you only added it in months or even a year later, so it's certainly not essential to the setting.

I almost forgot: After UU keeping powerlevels in hand and being made soft and lazy, the wizards can casually summon DEATH. As in, the literal grim reaper. Who implicitly intimidates the local gods, is going to be around to reap Great A'tuin himself, can phase through things because he's REALER than most of reality as a concept and only needs 4 allies, at least 3 of which are implicitly below him in conceptual primacy, to rout an effectively infinite bureaucracy of anthropomorphic personifications of the universe's physical laws.

The wizards can bind this fucker with a ritual...which can be parsed down from the trappings used to deliberately obfuscate magic into 3 small sticks at 4 cc of mouse blood because the real power of magic is THAT absurd. Sure an indefinite binding is explicitly impossible and inadvisable, but think about the magnitude of what's being summoned and bound AT ALL here.

And they recently found out you only need 2 small sticks and a fresh egg.

And if the principle of morphic resonance as well as the theory behind the witch construct known as the shamble is correct, it's possible the exact components for spells of similar scope can be improv'd to an extent.

True. I didn't mean to say the ritual is like, Exalted-levels of capital P-Perfect, but it's hella buff conceptually to the point it makes most Fate concept manipulation look like total shite.

I mean, the Rite was also buff enough to rip the Deathiness out of Mort in order to restore Death from the human traits he'd picked up on vacation, and it did successfully bind Susan back when she was "mantling" his role as his grandchild.

I'm going to say the Gurren Lagann one. People are going to disagree on the basis of Tenchi Muyo, SMT but hear me out: In TM you don't HAVE to fight the Chousin head-on necessarily. And SMT actually suggests strategies for tackling YHVH whereas in GL the protagonists had to break the inherent rules of the setting to win.

To clarify I'm NOT debating whether the Anti-Spiral or YHVH is more powerful because that's a kettle of controversy I'd rather not touch without someone conclusively explaining whether the Extradimensional Labyrinth was the illusion it looked like, or a no-bullshit multiverse the fucker casually reality warped into existence to keep the team completely and utterly isolated from each other. I'm talking challenge and reward just from what's in the jump.

You're dealing with someone with enough reserved spiral energy to launch big bang-strength attacks and keep fighting harder...before capturing the dude who barely beat him. And if you take the interpretation that Lagann-hen powerlevels are canon he can launch on attack that dwarfs the big bang by an order of magnitude.

As for rewards-the ASes live "between the 11th and 12th dimensions" so winning Simon-levels of Spiral Energy effectively gives you the capacity to navigate those and modify constructs at will capable of defeating other constructs that operate on multidimensional principles such as them. And since Spiral Energy is generated by yourself, it won't be diminished outside its' native reality like your connection to the Great Will.

To be fair i can see the reasoning there, sort of. My main point was NOBODY approved of the damn Hellblazer before someone snuck it onto the drive, which in my eyes renders it fair game to be replaced.

> 4) A person who is willing to put up with any complaints

And, to be fair, I don't think there would be a lot of complaints. But there would be one or two, because there's ALWAYS one or two, even for brand new jumps.

I'm not denying it only happens in very, VERY exceptional circumstances and should not be treated as a regular thing. I'm saying the fact the jump already breached the thread consensus aspect is why I think it's justifiable to kick it.

No comment on anything else in the discussion, but the Sandman bit seems to be true.

I've actually read PS238, and Murphy is intended to literally be a fragment of Dream. They never come out and say it, but his intro makes it clear.

I really need to emphasise this: Every time someone says Gilgamesh, or Darkseid, or Endbringers, or Scion is unbeatable?

The amount of pure bullshit ZUN's fanbase attributes to their waifus outweighs all. That. Shit by an absurd margin.

Since it's technically a perk would it be cool to keep one's original shape from the previous jump instead of taking an animal form?

Looks pretty good, otherwise

I'm going to need a canon citation for this character being intended to be THAT SPECIFIC VERTIGO COMICS CHARCTEr rather than an EXPY like a generic santa claus/reaper in various stories, because I don't consider "makes it clear" to be valid evidence for a fact.

I know it's probably redundant at this point, but you ought to clarify if labeled perks and items are free or discounted. This is especially important for Chaw.

The pedant in me wants to point out that the Raptor perks is wrong, as owls are not related to falcons. Falcons are a separate lineage from other birds of prey, and are actually a type of canary that convergently evolved to have similar traits to order Afroaves. Otherwise, yeah, looks great.

>> No.47317376

Oh god. I'm getting drawn into a debate here aren't I? Oh well, it's late at night and I'm on the Internet; figure this is how it's meant to go, right?

First I just wanna lay out what I'm NOT saying. I'm not saying anything about the jump, or design choices, or anything beyond how the writers of the PS238 comic, and Neil Gaiman made their works. Cool?

The key thing here, in my eyes, is the -intention- of the writers. Murphy in PS238 is INTENDED to come across to the audience as Dream of the Endless. That's how he as a character was designed. The comic goes out of it's way numerous times to explicitly make this parallel.

Gaiman, on the other hand, DID NOT try to construct Death, or any of the Sandman characters, to be seen as characters from other IPs being transplanted over into his work. Any resmeblance is incidental. At no point does he try to make a comparison, positive or negative, between his Death and Pratchett's. They have the same name and perform the same function, broadly speaking, but that's only because death itself is just such an omnipresent thing, and people have been personifying it in different ways for millennia.

All I pointed to Tvtropes for was some quick and easy evidence, in case you didn't want to trust my word.

Oh okay, I see what you mean. So you're saying it's like how South park's God is supposed to be THE God of the Bible but obviously isn't supposed to come with all the implications of objective morality and omniscience that being God entails?

Because I can accept that. I just don't accept Bancho using him as an example to put in any setting's power from anywhere in the jump.

>> No.47317541

Raptor and Gizzard Flying look like they have a lot of overlap. How would someone with Raptor compare to a Gizzard Flyer with Combat Chaw, and how would someone with both compare?

Also, if you are taking Raptor, does Combat Chaw do anything?

Finally, you might want to change Hagswar to account for the Pure One background, and make it clear if you can help the Owls overcome it or if they're inevitably doomed.

>> No.47317685

So reading the jump, I fiend the Pure One leader to be quite the haggler.

>> No.47317894

>one's original form
Yeeeah, I kinda hoped nobody would want that, but I suppose I ought to add it.

Will clarify. Before I do the next version, all 100cp perks are indeed free to the respective backgrounds.
Chaw should be "one purchase free for Guardians, further purchases discounted". There's the right number of options so it should be impossible to have 50cp left over, unless I done goof.

Entirely my error, will correct.

>flying fox
air-breathing + animal = go for it.

>Raptor vs Gizzard Flying
Raptor is meant for combat, Gizzard Flying is meant for avoiding obstacles/being a 'leaf on the wind'. You could absolutely use Gizzard Flying to fly though a flock of enemies, but it won't help you shred them any more than you could already.
Raptor won't really help you fly though a collapsing cave or through a tornado without hitting something/getting blown away.

>Raptor vs Chaw: Search and Rescue (and Combat)
Raptor is straight-up killy-ness. Search and Rescue (and Combat) Chaw covers a few other related skills like search patterns and signals, plus the combat basics. Sort of the difference between going to army boot camp (Search and Rescue) and taking a professional shooting/self defense course (Raptor).
Will try to make clearer.

Will do.

Presumably we're like, a young adult owl? How old is that in owl years, 5? 8? Either way, the great grey owl: The closest thing nature has to something Anti-Spiral shaped. If things were otherwise we might've come as a northern white-faced owl for transformer owl shenanigans, but hey-that's what morphing tech's for.

Either way, we're long overdue for vacation after unleashing the Eldar god of death to give Chaos-and the Imperium-one more kick in the nuts so here we're just going to take a break and do owl things.

Fly by night.

Hoot, rotate our head and maybe get some weird looks if those are considered socially unacceptable in owl society.

Eat fieldmice. Cooked, of course.

And build giant robots. Owl-shaped giant robots. Because how else are you going to defeat an army of evil flying things? Well technically they'll more be remote controlled drones powered by a core with a tiny spark from the Ember of Hoole-and our own spiritual energy-but the point is: We're probably going to get kicked out of the tree for building nullspaces and matter-energy converters and generally disturbing the neighbours, but they'll let us back in once our army of theomechanical avian killbots arrives to "save" the "day".

>> No.47318192

I'm almost tempted to go with a ridiculous build based around going Drop In and buying almost all the Pure One line so I can be a platypus with dark magic. I mean think about it, platypi are horrific abominations combining the features of any number of completely different creatures, they're likely to be looked upon akin to Frankenstein's Monster.

Being able to purchase the not an owl as another origin for something like 300 would be nice, but can see why you might want to avoid that. Although I do feel the need to point out there should probably be a size limit to prevent silliness with coming in as an elephant or something.

>> No.47318198

To be fair you can say that about pretty much any lifeform from Australia

>> No.47318246

Yeah, but Platypi are especially obvious about it. Bills, egg laying, and venomous ankle spurs on a mammal. Australia probably would end up holding similar connotations to R'lyeh in that universe.

>What is your jumpers theme?
While I jump as myself, I won't lie. I went with a theme of self-improvement and demons/magic. Self-improvement is pretty broad though, so eventually gene splicing and cybernetic augments became one hell of a thing... and then just about like everything I do, it got out of hand and before I know it, I'm trying to study gods so I can turn other people into gods.


Well, why not?

This was an obvious conclusion, yes. But I've always liked elves as long as they weren't as obnoxious as they can be in some stories. Long life, good looks, adorable pointed ears that sometimes wiggle... what's not to like?

Yeah... you're probably right. I'd have to figure something else out for a good combination. Also yes, that puppers is amazing.

Why'd you decide to be the elephantine chariot of the penis demoness anyway? I was expecting you'd go as one of the more classic kinds of "demon" like a Rakshasa or Nezha, or even an oni maybe. At least in the case of a Tyrant the CP drain is totally understandable even if it fits you too well

By the way, just curious-does the movie diverge from the books? I haven't seen or read either of 'em but I figured it must be pretty faithful considering there's no +0CP drawback

>> No.47318612

Alright, I'm back.

I added this drawback because I wanted people who didn't want to deal with the lower-level "annoyances" to have more choice in terms of CP gain.

I did not see a problem with it, as we already have many timeline breaking and/or crossover drawbacks.

I am aware that others have already said this, but I am not going to scrap my actual argument and make stuff up because others have used it before me.

>> No.47318614

Because my first choice was limited to 200CP, my second choice was limited to 600CP, and I needed to grab SOMETHING that wouldn't screw me over. And when SMTAnon said I could probably splice the form a bit I just said 'fuck it' because I get the idea I'm unable to combine the effects of Demonic Infusion/Demonic Fusion together.

It's a matter of what's available. Plus I'll be honest, all the freaking hype people gave to the 1000CP choice forms have kind of put me off on them.
