Seriously though this is an RP thread; you've been warned.
Noted. Also, you're good you. That was fast.
As for the leadership bit, she meant it. There IS a difference between leading and dictating however. Part of Thez' success with the ne'ers was because she wasn't TELLING them to fight, she was in the ring fighting WITH them.
"And 'cuz I paid for their whores!"
A noble vengeance that stays true to the clerical domain. Romantic, and suitable for a Chaotic good character.
I like it.
Then those who are not interested in following Gridiron, in fighting for the Right, or in protecting Port Barry can leave and returned to their charred homes. No matter. Only those who are motivated are fit in any event. Trumpaladin follows the holy way, the way of Good and Football and America. He calls upon all to follow him. Some will be fit for this quest, and some will not. But for those who are, they shall be organized into the Church Militant
Trumpaladin will also be offering nose jobs and legal name changes to relevant members of the upper classes. He needs all the resources available. Even bankers, lawyers, and business executives. Perhaps especially them
Tracy is still spelunking in an undisclosed location, looking for a good lair.
I get what you are saying, and I like/agree. I was being a bit catty, in the interest of presentation and measure, please pay that no mind.
Trump has full reign to do as he suggests, but he notices that every time he means to say "Follow", he curiously says "Join".
Also Infernius, "You goof", don't worry. I've already thought of 3 loopholes. ^_!
So if i've read right
>we do damage
Thats an exceptionally abbreviated version, but yeah for the most part.
HOLD THE FUCK UP
TRACY IS PREGNENT?
Tracy found her cave, and is explaining to the ants how she wants it excavated.>>10719Are you referring to the consequences of a Cleric race-mixing with an infernal monk of opposite alignment? (high-impact sexual tragedy, anyone?)>>10720>*yanks fork out of haggis*Welcome to the bread.
I hadn't even thought of that, I was referring to the terms of the seal against outsiders. I WILL think about that though.She has me looking up images of Ironwill now, for posterity and shit
This false positive shall be dealt with in its proper time
Is it wrong that I found that pic arousing? Should I even be saying this? Does it even matter anymore? smh self-depricatingly
I can't find it, but wasn't there an agreement that everything thay happened to Tracy would become board canon?Trump, be happy for your goddamn waifu. I will go down with this ship
I'm guessing your referring most to the mention of incorporation of people with specialized knowledge into the town school, and perhaps also the mandatory education of the youth. This I guess, may have to wait until the USFL has almost soveriegn power. As for the conscription of the veterans into the Church Militant, I can't imagine they'd be unwilling very often, at least where they don't have other things going on in their lives they need to attend to, and even that is allowed for under Trump's plan
You leave me no choice. Read this >>10678 →
Don't worry, I slipped it into one of the Tea times. It was dismissed as Fake News, but its still on record.>>10730
I'm saying people don't respond as well to 'compulsory' or 'mandatory'. Consider a "You'll get what you want if..." strategy perhaps?
>>10729Thanks. I still ship you with Trollestia.
GM, you still haven't given Trollestia's judgement of Torq's rare Pepe collection.
Also, was I right to guess that her clerical domain was Trickery aka Trolling?
In order to judge, I'd/she'd have to see it. How does it rate compared to the Mlpol pepe collection?
infernuis try and find a hairstylist to help ifernuis change look.
i will help you on your quest to frm the teutonic order.
When Pearl Harbor was bombed, people came in droves to sign up for the army. And almost no one was actually present for that. And now Port Barry has had its own Pearl Harbor>"You'll get what you want if…"
You want to serve God, King, and Country. Err... Football and Port Barry. It's the same motivation that caused people to give up their established lives to liberate Jerusalem. It's the same motivation as lead so many people to charge into steel and lead and danger in so many thousands of wars. Trumpaladin is interested in Patriots, and Patriots alone. He shall find them
Don't worry, he gives a rousing speech first
That sounds about right. Its kind of a splitting hairs point, but your proposal sounded a bit like you were telling people what to do, rather than giving them the means to accomplish what they already wanted to do.>>10735

Nice try, you red-haired mutant!
gm have problem with new look?

"Its actually quite dashing!"
"We're starting a Military Order. Crusaders for Truth and Good and Football. I'm modelling them on the old Teutonic Knights, the founders of Old Prussia. It seemed like precisely the sort of thing you might be interested in. I was wondering if you would put forth the time to teach them combat skills, and teach them of what they'll be up against. Who knows, they may be willing to learn about Rockwell and the Jews"
me would be honored but me get to come up with name.
"Well, it is

>>10742P.s., to practice with the shield, I recommend tying a ribbon around it so you can see where it is
Thanks>leaves party to go practice
The item bypasses any requisite proficiency,... I was just bantzing, cuz I didn't say everything I was 'supposed' to in the moment
>>10749Infernius should remember to expand his God's domain as well.
By the way, you may notice at some point that there is a pale-green, semi-transluscent compound bow following you around.
I'm assuming that that means Torc doesnt require past experince?
>>10758>Tracy has the fantasy equivalent of ankle bracelets
What exactly are the tarot cards for? More jewelry?>does not know what a tarot card is
"And it also makes for a wicked sled!"
Wait, wat? Is that a weapon?
It was discretely put in play, but yes. Its a composite longbow, and it floats of its own accord. There's an arrow attached by a thin strand of rope, but it floats along and follows you. There's a shadowy essence that seems attached to it.
Did any of those infernal leave any weapons behind when they vanished?
Nope, their equipment and trappings vanished with them. No swag, sorry
No, it maintains its distance
>>10764>non-edged, ranged weapon
I'll have to do some character gymnastics to get her to even touch it...
Can it be concealed?>>10767You could use it all you want if you were on her back.
Distance from Tracy. Can I get close enough
>>10769If you were in Arizona and stumbled upon a wild and unbroken mustang, would you get on its back? No? Now imagine the same, but it flies, is on fire, and has weird demonic powers. That goes in the "Hell no I ain't touchin' that shit" category
>>10771>not taming the magical hoers into a powerful mount that only you can ride
Some legendary hero you are.
>>10772Trump is too busy to learn the art of breaking demonic horses
kek. Probably not (concealment)>>10770>distance
Depends on environment, but its usually no less than 60' if allowed, and its deliberately moving to avoid both scrutiny and notoriety.
>>10774Rooooooooo stealth is important!
"His name is Bob! Balthazar Ozymandius Bestimus!"
You be quiet.>>10775
Don't worry, he's good at that, I only thought I'd mention so I don't have to roll for spot checks every so often
>>10775Paladins think stealth is dishonorable
Look on my works, ye mighty?
IDK what you mean
>>10777She's not a Paladin.
*teleports behind you (literally: she jumped planes) and hugs your back affectionately*
*hums* "~Hhhmmm, hello, ~Flashy."
>>10776It.. it doesn't talk, does it..?
You named him Balthazar Ozymandius Bestimus. Balthazar is a real name and I'm not sure if it's a reference to something, but Balthazar was the name of a character (the poison seller?) in Romeo and Juliet, and I think of the traitor in the Battlestar Galactica remake series. Ozymandias, an alternative name for Pharaoh Ramses II of Egypt, is the name of Percy Shelly's famous poem. It includes the lines "My name is Ozymandius. King of Kings. Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair">>10780
*became momentarily ethereal
[affectionate hoers noises]
You're correct, but Balthazar is also one of the 3 wise men in the nativity legend. Bestimus was a bit of a phone-in, so that (WAAAAY earlier) he could
call himself "The Best Man". Its part of Thez' history.>>10781
Not talk, but he can thump the bowstring. One means yes, two means no, and "Swift defeat to mine enemies" means something is up (cuz he's shooting at something).
Trumpaladin makes a mental note of why he had marked down "jump scare" in his journal entry for the blue one
*nuzzles and hugs*
of course trump and i have founded a pantheon remember.
ozzymanas is bad guy in movie me see once.
"Um... hi?" Trump says scared
"I see the parts of the machines that were missing have turned up"
Ozymandius was also a historical king noted for his fairness and rigid adherence to common law.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert... near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away
This is the second set of Making Port Barry Great Again. Whereas most of what was said in the previous post involved Trumpaladin’s independent Football League/religious organization, this will mostly involve the civilian government of Port Barry. These changes will be very expensive, and could not possibly be expected to be completed even halfway by the conclusion of the three week period. They will be financed as logic dictates by the party’s finances, by the public treasury, by private investment, or by sheer borrowing where there is no other money available.
Trumpaladin shall have to look for anyone who could find the missing Jew gold AND could be relied upon to hand it over to the city treasury.
>If only there were a level 15 rogue who could find the missing Jew gold and then actually return it to the city
A man can dream, a man can dream
First, the town declares a corvée to clean up the streets and other mess from the destruction wrought by the demon attack. (not rebuilding, just cleaning up). Then, begins an assessment by adjustors and surveyors of the damage to the city. They shall determine the extent of the damage, and what areas should be destroyed altogether.
Second, retrieve all books on engineering, architexture, and city planning from the Trump Tower library, and begin planning the reconstruction of the relevant sections. Private property will be seized by the city via eminent domain. The exact specifications of the reconstruction shall have to wait for a report on the damage to the city, but in general, Trump would like to see the following changes
First, a street pattern that is arranged in a grid pattern rather than at random, In the alternative, streets radiate out from a central point Parisian style, the center point being either a plaza or a public building. But the big changes are these
A grand new city hall to be the center of city government, unless of course the existing one is sufficient for this purpose, and is sufficiently undamaged (paid for by the public)
A tower to use as the headquarters of the United States Football League. Obviously the Church needs its Vatican (party funded)
A new Diamond exchange. This will involve the relevant jeweler and the jewel industry in Port Barry that Thez helped set up (private funder)
A new tower hotel (Trump?)
Upscale Housing (Trump/borrowed money. It will pay for itself
A new shopping complex
A church for Inferius’s religion
>The brother survived unscathed somehow
It shall be burned to the ground. Tracy is welcome to help, but it’s coming down one way or another. It shall be replaced with the Port Barry Courthouse.
As mentioned in the previous section, the monestary and the raining grounds, like the stadium, are to the north of the city outside the walls. It seems that it will be wise to expand the walls up North to enclose this new section. Trumpaladin loves building walls, so this should be fun. The new enclosed area should include space for a few farms and probably also low income housing.
I believe a citadel should be built, should another assault fall upon Port Barry
As for rebuilding industry, the following things should occur. Please note that they would be financed by private funds and contracts, foreign investment, or borrowing with the expectation of future returns
Expand the already yuge forge to include a full-scale rolling mill and blast furnace. Build a warehouse as well, if there isn’t already one
Build an Armory, probably as an expansion of what exists already at the forge
Build a tannery
Build a textile mile
Build a paper mill
Build a printing press
Build a shipyard, or expand the existing one
These will be built near the water, preferably by the harbor, and to the west of the city (or perhaps the east) outside of the walls if necessary
Of course, three large ocean going vessels should be purchased, commissioned, or commandeered, for the Mendicant Order. These shall spread the word of Football across all continents and to all corners of the world
Naturally, Trumpaladin will give a speech, probably several, to the citizenry. He will speak of the fighting against the evil forces of globalism and Soccer that tried to attack the town, and that really were lurking and waiting to attack for just the right time, seizing upon an opportunity when the group was away. But thanks to the brave men and wo men of the Port Barry defense force, casualties were minimized. Thanks to the power of Football and the devotion of the party, they were able to distract the demons from the city, then fight through them, slaying hordes of them, killing the lieutenants, and leading right into Soros, the one armed-bastard. Thez, having seen the light of Football, placed a permanent travel ban on all outsiders except spooky horse apparently, and in the process, deported herself. Now Trump asks all citizens of Port Barry to display the same devotion and willingness to sacrifice in rebuilding the city, and in helping to spread the word of Football, which delivered the city from evil. He also tells them to be on the look out for Soccer – that most evil of “sports” – as it is a demonic plot, existing to pervert national love. He tells them of his plans for Port Barry and for the USFL, and asks them to join, He tells of the Football powered miracle of the resurrection booth, and how he is using it to revive casualties
Only if I get to stick a sword in some stone
>>10794>burn the brothel
"YOU SHALL DO NO SUCH THING! Oooooh, this motherfucker! You're lucky that me escaping means that Soros escapes! Wait a second,...."
A disembodied purple fist appears in the air above Trump and <WHONK> he has another lump on his head.
"It was business.">>10795
Is that a metaphor, or am I not following?
>Is reading Guardian Paramount abilities
Fug! She's indestructible. It's great to play a class that can defend other characters too.
Can Tracy also get a good armor upgrade somewhere? She has good reason to protect her body now. Maybe some of those gold-steel plates?>>10791>Paladin not being immune to fear
*is still nuzzling you*
"~Hmmmh..! Oh, yes, it seems the pirates who looted them fled when the infernals attacked and left their treasure behind. I picked the parts up while I was looking for infernal weapons.. ~hhmm." Tracy says nonchalantly, clearly glad to see you.
He's based on Merlin, remember?
Quite literally, Lenos is the only person who's ever forged anything out of golded steel. Its a sound idea though.>>10798
I was just checking, I first thought it was a vaguely lewd joke is all.
I see the travel ban was only partly successful.
"TRACY! Want to burn something? Like a large building?">>10795
So long as that isn't code for sex with Trollestoa, then sure>>10797
"I know you're lying"
>>10801Not being continent with your wife and son/daughter
"Ooooh, this,... okay fine, if thats how he wants to play it."
No violation of the travel ban has occurred, since no one has traveled anywhere and no goods or information was exchanged. I will suggest that you should probably leave the brothel alone.
[2d20 = 29]>>10801
Bluff (dispel suspicions) + Perform (acting: appear extra innocent)
"~Hhhmmm.. Now why would I lie to you about that, ~Flashy?">burn
[inquisitive hoers noises] You do realize this'll bring her closer to the Chaotic Path, right?
Per those rolls, Trump is unable to detect any duplicity. She seems to be telling the truth.
Y spoiler tho? Just asking
Left the spoiler on from the jumpscare in >>10780
Also, did any of those golem cores have user-viable parts? Could they be fashioned to craft a magical weapon?
i track down jews trump.
And little else. Some of those sprockets, gears, and shafts are pure mythril, adamantite, and a variety of alloys. Aside from being literally gold-plated, those robots are crafting GOLD.
>>10810>Doesn't have the track skill
For that, you'd need an extraplanar bloodhound, with a powerful sense of smell, tracking skills, and an unquenchable thirst for Infernal bloodtl;dr, count me in>>10811
Would Lenos craft Tracy something special for Tracy, if she offered him the cigarettes she looted from the body of your dead coworker?
*pushes away pony anyways*
Are you talking about Barry?
"What do you have in mind? I'll answer afterward."
i have the detect jew spell.
Fail, and in his fail, he finds his arms unintendedly wrapped around Tracy.
[1d20 = 16]>>10805
Roll anyways, because this bitch ain't right
You suspect there might be something amiss.
But then, you always think Tracy is up to something.
So, no dispositional change.
Is there any empathic bond? If there is, she can feel my suspicion and disgust
Yeah, that's pretty much exactly how that scene would have played out
>>10815>here goes nothing
A wearable, extending, spiked-chain that functions as a melee saw-blade and can conduct psionic abilities>>10822
There would be if you took her as your mount.
She knows, but she doesn't seem to care for the most part.
Can you elaborate on what occurs when that happens?
Yes, yes, Ghost-rider is an abominable Chain Demon (what? its literally spelled out!). You want chain-demon skills then?
So, about tracys pregnancy...
How is tis gonna work
This tbh. is it gonna be half horse?
or was Trumpaladin secretly a pony all along... DUN DUN DUN!!!
Minataur horse thing?
To be determined. It was "her" idea, but it sounded like fun so I went with it. As far as raw gameplay is concerned, it allows Tracy extra bonuses if she feels life-threatened, and it gives OP the opportunity to fuck with Trump (and others) on occasion. So far, that's it.>>10829
Well, the typical gestation for a hoers is just under a year. So, you'll permit me to defer on that?
>>10826'>Waited a while because I thought GM would take the initiative to explain
She gains the title, a few of her stats get buffed, you'll be able to summon her from anywhere within a mile through a vague empathetic link that allows for heightened communication. You'd also be able to use any item connected to her (i.e. the bow, the chain), and the same things go for spells and spell-like abilities (i.e. be able to use the Blackguard's evil magic)
Also, being able to infinitely share saving rolls with a Guardian Paramount would make you virtually invincible during mounted combat. There are other supernatural abilities a Cauchemar Nightmare can share with its rider, but those have nothing to do with the class.https://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/SRD:Paladin%27s_Mount>>10827
All the same. Trumpaladin will have a court declare Tracy unfit to be the mother, then take legal custody of the child. The child may be disabled from the mother's contain or demon blood use, but not all evils can be stopped. One more set back in a long life of set backs, but nothing more
>>10834Don't you dare fuck this up! That trigger activates 5 potential endings where she systematically kills-off all of the other characters; and I don't want to make new flow charts.
*cries at the thought of being able to teach his hopefully not part demon and not cocaine addicted son how to play football, an opportunity he thought he lost forever*
K. Sorry I missed the earlier post, I'm casual-browsing.>>10834
lol Try it!
Am I safe if I support your ship?
>>10835>insists on doing everything the hard way
So let be written, so let it be done
>>10838Not if she loses her foal.
*His. The foal deserves a good family
Uhhhh, do I have magic for this shit?
Kek, too bad its got this one,....
>>10841>Doesn't want Tracy>Tracy has child>Trump is going to take her child
This shit doesn't add up
Can Torc be an uncle?
>>10842If your character could somehow detect an extraplanar predatory hoers with stealth, lunging out of another dimension and crushing your ripcage.>>10843
Tracy would make sure her foal lived a better life than hers.
We'll take him away from his evil mother, don't you worry. He shall play football and learn the family business with his father
Okay, now you're just trolling. I'm sure you know Trump would get eviscerated if he tried.
You do know she has the sense motive skill and she's fully focused on you right now,
>>10845>Tracy would make sure her foal lived a better life than hers.
Even if that meant giving up her child to a loving and wealthy family?
And she won't be alone
trump no take baby away!!
That makes 3v1
Have fun taking the baby Trump
"Its MY seal, I'll break the shit out of it he thinks,...."
>>10851NO!!! She would make sure her family was loving and wealthy, even if she had to destroy an entire country, and melt the brain of her idiot husband, to do so.>>10852
I know. I was hoping for a chance to explore the planes.
She's off to a good start
She can detect that he is thinking about his child and how to protect him and give him the best life possible>>10849
Trumpaladin has been thinking about how to put down the problem dog ever since she took the blood. He knows he can't evade it forever. It will take time and preparation, but what needs be done, needs be done
O.O I almost wish I could make you take back those words
The fact that she'd be willing to do that is precisely why she can't be his mount, she can't be his wife, and ahe can't be his child's mother
>>10858>implying it will be a boyIs d&d always this wierd?
>>10858>She can detect that he is thinking about his child and how to protect him and give him the best life possible
[Genocidal Sithlord hoers noises]>>10861This isn't D&D, it's Mixed Nuts.
Is GM even dealing with our bullshit anymore?
I've seen far worse>>10864
Are you KIDDING? I must be a McDonald's cuz I'm lovin' it
The first step to becoming w paladin's mount is to earn his trust. Why is this overlooked, little pony?
Because trust requores commitment on both sides of the isle?
She's just not willing. Wants the job, but is unwilling to do the duties
I think this is going to be an ongoing "work in progress"
Can Tracy bully Ponimaru into writing her a Ninja scroll?
No, his skill-set is WAAAAAAY below metaphysics
>>10871>no lunch money
hey gm can i go person to person(in port barry) gathering info on the jews?
Sure, but its pretty rudimentary. "Hella stingy", "Ill mannered", "Cheap", "Non-comformative",... you know the drill
"Infectious, I have a better proposition for you"
Tracy remembers her previous endeavor on Tracking-down the Jewish caravan's treasure.
ok which direction did they ride into town,the first time?
trump insult infernuis why?
Trumpaladin goes to Levos to ask a simple question
"When the rats were banished from Port Barry, they were alleged to have had a large stock of gold. It has not been found. Should this massive stock pile be found and delivered to the city, it would go a massive way towards rebuilding the damaged city"
[interested hoers noises]
"From the north. Always to or from the north">>10879>Levos>>10880
"Sooo, are you asking for my help? Cuz I can guarantee that it won't all make it back to the city in THAT event."
me help find gold for port barry, but trump have to put up a statue commemorating thez.
Since the pony was last near Trump, Trump makes essentially the same request of Tracy.
"Tracy Cage, little pony, do you want to prove yourself? To show you are truly someone worthy of praise and admiration - worthy of love? I can tell you how to find it. Port Barry was devastated in the demon attack. Now, it's rumored that the Rats left a large pile of money around. Maybe they did, maybe they didn't, but no one is better suited to finding it all than you. Should you return it, love and respect for you can only grow."
He flashes his eyes at her
"You are a good pony, full of pride in your service, are you not? You want to prove it?"
Looks at her more intensely
"Want to prove it to me? Retrieve the missing gold, turn it over to the public coffers, and help Port Barry"
Lenos coughs distinctly
did they smell a particular way?
"I am certian the city will be willing to commemorate those who delivered the city from evil, and suffered in the process, once the funds become available"
Yeah, sure, I can do that." Tracy says, already fitting her armor.
"Do you have any other leads aside from going to the north? I already know that much."
Asked of Lenos later, after the events with Inferius and Tracy
"Thez had stones of law and of chaos. What happened to them?"
Trumpaladin is surprised by this reaction
"The Minotaur over there claims to be able to identify persons of the same cultural background as the rat people living in port Barry. Perhaps he can help extract information from them">>10891
"I am sure they will be willing, once the funds become available"
Thats a good question, I'll have to think of an appropriately distinctive 'smell' for (((them))).>>10890
"A tickle in my throat, pay me no mind." Lenos says entirely unconvincingly.
"Do you expect to have to leave the city by any massive distance. Actually, let me ask you flat out. Do you believe you will have to travel much more than a mile north of the northern gate?"
"Several miles, it's actually quite a bit even before the path spits." *is fitting hoers shoes*
Trumpaladin fondly remembers the smell of bagels and gently woven kippahs from his time in New York City
*makes internal note to swipe treasure to pay Lenos for the weapon*
OP is veritably cackling at the prospects
good. you have my sword.
"Do you think you might want to report the spot, then have an oxen team deliver the gold to port Barry?"
pauses for a moment, then says "I am trusting you with this, and so is Port Barry. It is very important that all
of the gold is accounted for"
"Inferius, how good are you at counting?"
me can count to 6 million.
"Can we go already?!" Tracy asks annoyed, knowing how long the trip will take with the bull weighing her down.
GM, please fast forward the journey.
"Excellent. Please prepare an account of what is found."
He thinks about making another suggestion, but then declines.
"Thez had a vast horde of Gold, gems, and other valuables here in the pyramid. She allowed us to make use of it - all of it - because she knew we would help the cause of Good and the citizenry of Port Barry with it. She even forwent her use of small gems for jewelry because of it. And you know how much she loved her jewelry, not that she ever needed it. And here, the money is not ours. It rightfully belongs to the citizenry of Port Barry, whom we are trustees over. If it can be delivered in its entirety here, it would go a long way to helping. I believe, even if I am too ignorant to say for sure, that love of country is the highest form of love for Hitler and Rockwell. They are our country now. Do Rockwell proud.">>10904
"Now hold your horses. Can you repeat back to me what your mission is?"
A journey is never as important as the destination, little pony
"Actually, I must second guess myself here. Are you certain you are needed on this quest? I think the bull has it handled"
>>10906>all of it
Yes of course, Thez would never abscond with a portion of it and sequester it, that would be 'bad'.
me want tracys help.
"You WILL make Thez proud. Just make sure every penny makes it back here and away from wherever those Jew rats stored it. That money will go to glorifying Thez, both in the statue of her, and in the glorious new skyline of Port Barry that she always wanted to see">>10911
"She's useful, I am certain of that. Be sure that she too, makes Thez - and Rockwell and Hitler - proud. Hell, make her make me proud, if that means anything to her"
Inferius is released
"Thez is trusting us," Trumpaladin yells at the bull as he walks out the door
Can we fast travel?
"In my name no less,...."
Technically its not YOUR name
"You know what I mean, he's lucky I'm here," she says crossing her arms irritatedly.
She didn't want to talk to him. Interesting
Do you have a particular destination? It seems you're more in search-mode.
"Lenos, where are the stones?"
[1d20 = 7]>>10917
*teleports before you*
*kisses* (sneak attack)
The fork in the road.
[1d20 = 6]>>10918
what she said.>>10920
"I'll say my goodbyes to you only when I am sure it is truly goodbye" he says, probably not loud enough for her to hear
Welp, if they are headed down to the fork in the road, and lenos isn't talkative, then Trumpaladin is going down to the docks
"I don't know. She kept 'em on her person somewhere, but I never saw exactly where, which is funny cuz its not like she was really wearing anything come to think of it"
I meant you wont give her a chance
Also Hello again
[1d20 = 5]>>10925
Roll for insight
She'll have her chance
"Hello. Want to come with me into town, to talk to some interesting people?"
No need, he doesn't know.
So, is everyone rdy to jump to the crossroads? Keep in mind I (and I doubt I'm the only one) don't have a whole lot of time to spare
Poof Tourcil and I to the docks>>10931
That's fine. I don't have much time either.
Wait, not the crossroads?
you thought we would leave port barry unguarded again? lol nope.
No, I'm going to
grind points for insight and detection checks
work on the assumption that Inferius's theory about the Jews is correct, and that there are people in Port Barry who, know much about the rat presence. So I'm going to collect intelligence to try to discover the hiding place and how much is there. Also this >>10936
Sound thinking. The locals don't know much, just that the jews would make weekly trips north and would come back a few days later. Always carting stuff out but never bringing anything back. You'd think they would....
Nobody knows where the shit was kept.
Take me to the cart repair shop
>>10937>implying you have any such detection skillsYou'll have to train them from scratch>>10938
Can we skip to the crossroads now?
>>10940Trumpaldin is experienced as an immigration officer. He's spent thousands of hours doing nothing but detection. He came in with skills
I was gonna, but Trump veered off
Oh fuck it, all to the crossroads
After a short travel at accelerated speed, the party is at the crossroads. To the north is Cardishore (where the remainder of Tracy's knives are), to the left is Spartemia or whatever I called it that one time (I'll go back and check, but yeah) and to the right is the Gnome city of Krenshall (again, I'll go back).
I say Cardishore or Krenshall
[5d20 = 71]>>10945
Try to look for clues again
Listen + Spot + Scent + Search + Track
Cardishore was a very Jewy place, but I do not know if it has the locations for the stashing. Krenshall, I think, is most likely, since I don't think a second human city would have it if the first one did not
*stands, emotions festering*
lets just barge in!!
[1d20 = 19]I'll have to go soon...>>10949>opportunity attack
Suddenly and without warning, Tracy fully takes Trump by the mouth in a long and lasting passionate kiss.
Sorry, I was looking for the other names.
Though landing perfectly on an entirely non-responsive Trump, it has no effect
Found it! Sparinetar and Krenshallgramellervenciatus were the other two.>>10953

Take care all. I had expected that tonight was gonna be about declaring what was happening in the 2-3 week period between the Soros fight and now, but whatever; its all good.
>>10968My Character has more important things to do than to figure out where the gold is. He needs to be back at base
>>10968REEEEE!!! I need that time
You'll get it, I'll mix it all together.
You will change the very core of your being for the light, or you shall perish, Outsider, like all of the rest of your kind
You better not lie to me Tracy, you better not lie to me ever again, or I will cut you. I will cut the tendons out from your beloved little legs, each of them, to leave you wobbling like an accordion and unable to run or to move or to stab. I will cut the muscles from your preciously little jaw. Then, and most importantly of all, I will cut you precious womb open and liberate my child from you. I shall slit his throat and end the suffering caused by the shame of being the spawn of you. Then I shall cut your intestines from you, wrap them around your neck, and hang you up by them as your useless legs dangle like a fucking grandmother's wind chime. Then, I shall skin you - cut your precious blue hide off. I shall tan it into leather, dye it, and make the most obnoxious black jacket. And while wearing that jacket, I shall track down every waifu - every last one of them - and steal them. I shall fuck them while wearing your tanned hide as an obnoxious black jacket. You better hope you are dead by then, because I will live stream every single one of them for the viewing pleasure of your wind chime of a body. Don't you lie to me Tracy, don't you ever lie to me.\r
"let infernuis say that if trump ever tries that me banish you to the soccer plane for eternity, where you will be tortued endlessly by being forced to watch every single soccer game ever played."
She is dishonest and you side with her? No, never. I'll roast you too you fucking cow. I'll take you right to a Kosher slaughter house, well they'll gut you and process you all in accord with the Talmudic law. And your ground beef will become paddies for happy meals for the little Jewish children, as the proceeds from the sale are donated to the Holocaust Museum. And your hide... your hide? It will be tanned into leather and become the scrolls from which an Hasidic Jew will painstakingly transcribe a handwritten copy of the Talmud. And then your Jew Talmud hide will become the basis for learning the Talmud for generations of little jews, passed down from generation to generation.
I am not pairing with anyone who does not recognize the Paladin's code of Honesty and Duty, and don't you get in the way. If you want to serve the Jews, well, I'll make you serve the Jews
thats a pretty jewy plan trump.
So is over looking the faults of a rogue outsider in our midst, you Hebrew Happy meal
all she want to do is make you happy man, chill infernuis dont know why you so crazy maybe we take you back to port barry.
Don't you see? She doesn't. She doesn't want to make anyone happy. She doesn't want to serve God, nor serve country, nor serve her alleged love. I don't think she even wants to serve herself. And so why am I being shackled to her when she can only harm? This is insulting. I do not deserve this insult."
"Yes. Take me back to Port Barry
it okay buddy no one insult you, me just want every one to be happy T-thez would want us happy trump.
lets get you to your no, our town.
*obviously out of it by now, and surrendering physically to Inferius*
"She is as most women. No actual concern for any other person. No real love - nothing that deserves to go by the name of love. Only a desire to fill an inner emptiness. And that is done by hunting down and taking a man that she hopes to show off to the other women - they think if they do that they can be better than other women. Or by creating a child and stuffing them into the black void of their hearts."
He changes subject
"It wasn't your Rockwell, but Codreanu... I think that was his name. He once said, if I were faced by both an enemy and a traitor, and I had only one bullet, I would shoot the traitor. And he's right, because the traitor is closer and in a better position to do harm."
"You know she intends to take the Jew gold for her own, right? Some of it anyways. Now even that'd be tolerable, if she'd just say outright 'I earned this' or 'it's abandoned, no one owns it.' But she wouldn't say that, would she? She'd lie about it. Because she has no respect."
"Thez was honest and dutiful. She had her faults but..."
trump i cant say you wrong about most women, but thez wasnt like them and id like if we dont go down that road, trump tracy may lie but she still our friend she not do anything to hurt us, me dont know why you so mean to her but me know you do what is right and me respect you for that.
*looks over to Inferius*
"Is she? I'm not as sure...
Just you wait and see. She'll be the first to get to the treasure, and a few choice gems will be removed from their rings and crowns, and when you ask her where they went, she'll concoct some weird story. And this will happen again and again. Can you rely on that? Would you want that riding you into battle? Would you want that raising you child? If she cannot be trusted with a few measly dollars, how can she be trusted with your life? Your child's life."
yes i would because i know she would love your&HER child and protect them with her life.
"It looks like Trump is going insane!"
GM looks at the board title, and back at her, cocking an eyebrow with wordless sarcasm. "Call it stress."
"I'd call it coocoo for cocoa puffs. I mean, he could have made the previous hoard of treasure last twice as long if he wasn't in such a hurry, port Barry is easily twice its previous size with a fully functional Football field, a civilian population that is actively training and organizing, and all the basic shit one could ever need. All this, on top of having a giant floating crystal tower with his name on the side, and he's still like this?" she says scratching her head. "I'll make a living harpsichord out of him if he tries any of that shit with Tracy, I'nis, or the whorehouse though,..."
Kekd hard at that pet name.
>tfw too lazy and tired to greentext a touching response, and have to head off to work+classes..
I'll cook-up something later...
>>10992Reeeee! Muh flowcharts! Idk how to respond to so many action/emotion triggers at once!
I was going to write-out a romantic, hope-filled greentext/dialogue after the kiss, but now she's gotta cope with this.
*whips out graphing calculator*
Dammit..! I'm gonna have to activate my Yandere Cheats (they're extremely limited, and have critical psychotic consequences)to keep her from killing half the characters. You know she's hormonal now, right?Ignorance
--> Tracy was still woozy from that long, passionate kiss, and wasn't listening at the beginning, in a whirl of positive hysteria.
Now for the Wilder abilities:
Autohypnosis --> Repressed Memories>Due to a violent storm of latent internal turmoil in the Dreadful Mare's Chaotic psyche, her trained but Volatile Mind adapted to delet what she wasn't able to handle at the moment. Tracy suddenly feels shaken to the core, but only clearly remembers select parts of what her supposed lover just said, while being vaguely aware of the roots of her husband's breakdown, and deeply disdained by his state of distress.
[murderous hoers noises begin before cutting off abruptly]
*shakes herself awake* "... F.. F-Flashy..?!" she murmurs, her eyes appearing glassed-over and dreary, before suddenly opening wide, revived with an aquamarine blaze
".. Flashy..! Y-you look really sick..!" She stutters, grasping your waist feverishly.
"Y-you didn't have to come all this way to track-down the treasure, if you weren't feeling well. The bull and I can easily do it on our own. I'll bring it back, so p-please don't st-stress..!" she stutters pleadingly, her body shaking with the early onset of hysteria "I... I-I'll bring it back...!" She murmurs again, more quietly this time, her eyes appearing to fade and glass-over once more. A shaky hoof wanders over to her soft, pale-blue abdomen, as if desperately looking for something. "F-for.. us
...! I.. I'll find it..">>10985
The fire returns to her eyes, as she turns over to the bull with a frightening glare
"Make sure he gets home safely (wtf is fae?)
, and come back asap." She barks, her face momentarily becoming a scowl before she turns away and stares strait down at the pepples on the road.
"I will be scouting-out this area while you're away." she mutters, her voice becoming monotone.PLEASE accompany her on the journey. It's important that the Cleric be there.AAAAND That's enough to accommodate my charts. I will have some greentext later-on, if I can find the time.
>>10988Travel ban isn't so effective, now is it? Did the interdimensional equivalent of liberal judges get to it?In older editions of D&D, Paladins are not allowed to associate with any characters who do not act as Paladins are supposed to. Here, you have a Paladin who is forced to watch his only ever child carried to term and raised by a drug-using, soccer playing, lying, unpatriotic neutral-evil Outsider. There's just no way that wouldn't push him to the breaking pointBottom line: he's not letting Tracy take the child so long as he does not trust her,
may all the Heavens burn downFrom the very beginning, his primary desire was to free himself from the thrall of the alleged deities that sought to keep him imprisoned here and away from the plains and sea shores of his youth. He has not strayed from that goal. His patron deity did not become revered because he was effective against enemies. He became the object of worship because he showed no restraint in calling out traitors and tyrants amongst his own party, and attacked alleged-allies with unrelenting ferocity. He has not forgotten that either
Yes. Trumpaladin has suffered a stress related breakdown relating to Tracy's pregnancy. He's now back in Trump Tower and is looking to explore a few weapons. He has reevaluated his situation and has determined that he has to re-prioritize his short term goals. "Next week's problem" is now this week's>>10993
I was going to respond to this, but >>10994
>>10994You might want to rethink that scene. She really shouldn't come within six feet of him while he's going psycho
>>10995FYI, Tracy actually isn't canonically drug-using in any text, memes or artworks I've seen (she's just normally that crazy), despite having grown up in a violent neigh-borhood full of potion-cooking ziggers. She's certainly not about to start now that she has a child either.
The moon sugar she bought in the khajit thread was originally meant to be used on you in a completely different story plan, but I decided to just use it to fuel her nightmare transformation, so that she wouldn't have it on her anymore.
Most of the rest is true-ish though.>>10996
She was just kissing you a moment ago.
I really g2g. I'll check in again this this evening (won't be able to RP though, due to work and shit)
>>10997If she uses cocaine then she uses cocaine. As for the kissing scene, I think we can say that ended a while before the later breakdown, with Tracy bolting off her own way and Trumpaladin slowly wandering off to the side, and the breakdown happening some minutes or hours later. If the breakdown had occurred while Tracy was in close physical proximity, it would have been quite a bit more dramatic
So what happened last night was the logical next step in a series of events within Trumpaladin that was set in motion the moment Tracy reacted coldly to his rescue of her after she drank the blood. Unlike some characters with flow charts of six gorrillion possible outcomes, this train derailment has only two. Well, I guess three. I was going to have this happen later when it seemed less determinate as to whether a specific outcome was likely. But I think it needs to happen now.

As for the breakdown, she would've been close enough to at least hear.>>10999Let's go mad together.>>11000

"Come closer little pony." *holds out sugar in one hand*. "This should only sting a little"if you intend to have Tracy shift alignments, that process needs to start now and have some noticeable effects, or it needs to not happen at all
>>11003Any chance Lord Hitler could give us a sign to point us towards where the wretched kikes stored their ill-gotten gains?

>>11010>do I have to play minefield?
YES!!!>wanting spoilersEverything involving her or you is a potential trigger for response, or pools for mental balances. Triggers are not necessarily negative or positive, and are ranked by points and pooled into calculating zones. The number of points each trigger may potentially have also changes constantly depending on the state of all pools and the sliding time scale: what may create a certain response at one point may have no effect, or an entirely different effect at another time. Most triggers are very subtle, and often have little affect by themselves, but certain others are landmines.

So, you made an AI?
>>11014No. I cooked-up convoluted system of math to determine the outcomes of various haphazard flowcharts that I made-up for character development.
This was mostly to maintain a consistently-insane character.
You're mostly right. The travel ban was enacted by Thez, and can thereby be revoked likewise, except that doing so would allow (((everyone))) back in.
And yes, that is pretty much what I had assumed happened with Trump.>>11009
Ordinarily we don't. I had initially thought that putting 2-3 week time-skip would allow "Wow, the town is almost entirely repaired, and look there's all those things that characters put into motion". Unfortunately, I can't put down my popcorn.>>11009>stomach bagpipes>eye-twitching intensifies

I will be thoroughly blanketing the next thread with "NO HOMO". Try having a thoughtform in your head that is rifling through your memory of 90's & 00's love ballads ~_~
>>11002>As for the breakdown, she would've been close enough to at least hear.
Well, yes and no. The initial complete psycho parts were said in a very low voice, more or less mumbled, so people mostly would not have heard it, except for Inferius, who was very close. By the time Inferius started arguing with Trumpaladin, that would have gotten everyone's attention, so they would have heard that. Tracy could have heard the mumbling of she were either doing a random listen check, or if she were focused in on Trumpaladin particularly at the moment, Trump's words were techinically addressed to her, and he did say her name. So it's plausible she heard everything, but really she would not have heard everything just by default. So basically you have a choice as to whether she hears the insane threats or if she only hears the later arguments.>>11009>WTALFIAEHAH
Not going to lie, I was legit IRL triggered by Tracy's in game lying and the opposition to my CPS suggestion. It only seemed natural to me to escalate the situation in game as well. Maybe one of these days I'll learn how to not take things over the internet, especially fantasy games over the internet. But that day is not today>harpsicord

How the fuck do ye think they made the first ones?
GM, do you have any non-mathematic tips for maintaining a consistent character? Without being possessed by a tulpa that ends up being someone else's waifu.
I should have been more specific.
LIVING stomach bagpipes. I.e., the dude is still alive.
Hmmmmm. I might. Let me think on that.
I'm not sure I understand the opposition to homo. Unless you're doing math and making flow charts for a D&D character who is supposed to be random. That's just fucking gay
>>11018>Well thats fucking gayIt's too late for me to turn back...
>>11011>Don't even think about taking her foal away from her
You wanted to be Ghost Rider, little pony? Well, your lot is to chase the Devil's heard across endless skies. Not be a mother
>>11016>Try having a thoughtform in your head that is rifling through your memory of 90's & 00's love ballads ~_~That's exactly why I created the math system: to avoid getting possessed.
Alright, setting aside the autism for a moment.
There are a couple ways Tracy can do the whole Ghost-Rider chain thing. For one she already has, what was it, 10 sets of +5 golded spiked chains? The easy way then is learning to animate the chains which can easily be done w/ telekinetics or magic (not necessarily spells either, items work just as well). Getting the chains to distort (lengthen, shorten, get more bladed) is trickier, but also possible. FULL ON ghost-rider shit WILL require a bit of intervention, which happens to fit with the theme of an upcoming segment which I spent all day devising. ^_~
Trump I'm a little surprised by recently, but the given explanation makes perfect sense. Part of the problem is that Trump is having to recognize that the line between good/evil is far more grey than is often touted. Still, he is the daddy-to-be of,... who fucking knows at this point.
Torcuil, would anon be offended if I said I would like to see more of him? I'll admit, when the meme magician idea first came up I was a little shaky on how it would work and didn't respond as effectively as I could (step on snek, for example). Still, in addition to memes he has the staff which at the very least has a few unlimited casts of basic spells.
Infernius,... you bastard. You rotten bastard. <sigh> I'll say that you've put me in an awkward position. The rest will play out as it does.
>>11028>>11016>Not just creating a self-insert character to eliminate the hassle and difficulties of creating a new person
Its not possession, its like having someone in your house going through stuff while you're in another room,... except the house is your head.
I don't get your meaning,... but I want to.
I don't understand
I just shipped another person's unoriginal OC so hard and so tenaciously that it stuck.
I mean, like with the banshee wail I have a much better understanding of how to incorporate memes as stand-alone magic and/or references to established spells. Basically, I'm owning up to having not fully prepared for a meme magician in previous.
Good. Meme magic has great potential for funny developments and plotlines Also,
I feel kind of responsible for helping him out in having some fun too, since it was my suggestion..
Ah, works for meme
To your earlier question of consistent RP'ing. You're already wet son, you might as well swim. I doubt you'll end up with a Tracy inna head, but there must be some reason you picked her and are able to play her authentically. Play off that if you can. Besides, no one said that Tracy can't evolve, you are her faggot atm.
P.S. Though not Tracy's OC, the way of the game is that this all occurs after Tracy has died, meaning its outside her OC's purview. Just saying.
>>11038>are able to play her authentically.
Really? I thought I was doing a shitty job.>>11039>meaning its outside her OC's purview.
I couldn't care less about w00t's opinions, desu. This is about memes.
>>11029>"good and evil is grey"
Where is the grey here?
First of all, when you're dealing with people you're forced to work with, it's a question of "do I trust them or do I not trust them." A yes or no question. And Tracy fails this, because she lies to him, she steals, and she just shrugs off exhortations to fight on behalf of the country.
She was cold to him when he rescued her, she was more interested in the blood than him when she was unconscious, she was more interested in running away, she fought both Trump and Inferius, she stole shit, she lied about it. Generally she's expressed far more interest in becoming this demon-thing than in him. Her motivation is pursuit of power. That's dangerous, and he can't control her like he used to through her obsession, because she doesn't care as much anymore. She did not seem interested in talking to him prior to going on the journey.
I had originally thought of making the treasure hunt sort of a test of character for Tracy. If she steals and then lies, she fails, and if she does not steal, or steals but is honest, then she passes. But frankly that's entrapment, not a test, because it is so remarkably obvious that she'd fail and fail big league.>But she's been helpful so far
Have you ever had the misfortune of working around untrustworthy people? They are cowardly. They will support you and help you when you are strong ad when things are going well. They strike you only when you are in your most desperate moments. They wait to attack you until you have been knocked straight down on the ground. They are much worse than enemies.
The biggest problem with Tracy is that she is constantly and perpetually growing more powerful. Meaning if she needs to be stopped - and every indication is that she will be - it'll be much harder to do later than it will be to do now.
The same thought process happened with Thez. When Trumpaladin saw Thez kill and eat the face off of a seemingly innocent person, he figured she needed a good killin'. He stopped when he figured he was unlikely to win the battle, with the intent to wait until she was distracted in the city and perhaps guards would attack her. After that, he figured she was useful. When she killed the horse, he was pissed off at her again and wanted to send Tracy to injure her (she found Trollestia instead). After that point, he sort of figured that she wasn't an active threat, and was probably essential for the final leg of the game.
Tracy being pregnant is frankly just insulting, because his attempts to save her from corruption and return her to her former self failed spectacularly
I can go on and on, but I think it's really obvious
For all the change in the physical appearance and capabilities of Tracy, there has been no growth in her personality. And that's the problem
Tracy becomes frustrated at not having found any clues, and decides to practice casting Shatter on various small objects.
>>11041>where's the gray
You asked for it,....>cracks knuckles
Classically, the issue of "good" or "evil" has boiled down to the individual's motivations: Service to Self or Service to Other.
Tracy as a character AND an OC kinda straddles that line, in that while her immediate motivations are observably Service to Self, her underlying motivations are vengeance, justice, and malicious destruction upon those who she sees (and in some cases are, though perhaps not to the degree of severity that she sees them) as being predatory, themselves malevolent, or just plain stab-worthy.
While the situational motivator for her is obviously self-interest, there's a degree of 'not-self' interest, in that she is aware (to whatever degree of non/sub/full-consciousness) that though it is satisfying to stab someone for whatever reason, she is both alleviating the need for someone else to stab them, as well as eliminating the circumstances which would result if they were allowed to continue unstabbed.
Tl:dr Yes, Tracy is pathological, but she seems to target more or less pathological individuals.
<cont> This is the reason Thez took such a liking to her initially. She's not conflicted when it is apparent that there is a threat, and she's merciless to whatever the threat may be. She COULD work on the dividing line between threat and non-threat, and probably will do so as her priorities change WRT recent developments. Also, Tracy's pathology was affected by character etymology, specifically relating to reproduction and all that, which seemed something deprived of her; the sudden change will also have (admittedly, chaotic in the least) repercussions that neither she nor her faggot anticipated.
In the same sense that Trump is freaking out, so is Tracy. To the ones outside the freak-out it appears madness, but to the one experiencing there IS a method.
Where is Tracy at this time?
And... I haven't seen a damned bit of that in game play. I've seen a character who was formerly like my ex-girlfriend (yandere, clingy, irrationally jealous) who has transformed into Anakin Skywalker in a quest for power. >Target's pathological individuals
She targets, and targets simply, "like a shark." No justice, no vengeance, no anger. Only the desire to kill for the sake of killing. Oh, and a desire to kill romantic rivals, but that's another story
True, this is all developmental psychology. A Tracy such as this doesn't just <poof> there's a psychotic hoers, there is a chain of events that leads up to it, as well as a number of catalysts and inner developments. Her fixation on Ghost Rider is a dead giveaway, in that GR is something of an antihero, more vigilante than outright protagonist except with a legit mandate.
Put simply, She likes to kill and burn and stab because, well, she's Tracy. She used to be super obsessive of Trumpaladin to the extent that she could be relied on for pretty much anything. That's not true any more - she can't be relied on, but still wants to dominate him and harm every female he touches. But most of all she wants power, and she's willing to harm whatever need be harmed to gain power. And when a creature already wats to kill for pleasure, or dominate you, or kill your allies, that's not grey. That's black. Jet black.
I'm not seeing it
Without any sign that she cares about... well, anything besides more power, this is an Anakin Skywalker transformation, not a Ghost Rider transformation.
By the way GM, I have a few questions. First off, that weapon killing weapon, about how many hits or wjat sort of dice rolls does it need to be effective? Is it effective against all weapons, less so against some?
The revival system. How does it work, and how portable is it?
Fae. How loyal is she? This should probably be RP'd out, but I have a whole new set of driving-hundreds-of-miles-then-flying-thousands-of-miles-then-back-again-tomorrow.
Such a shame really. If Tracy were as obsessive as she were at the beginning of the game, and a little more honest, she'd be a great mount
Weapon hit points are determined by thickness and material composition (volume and harness). A basic heavy mace has a hardness of 10 and HP of 10, meaning that another weapon needs at least a hardness of 10 to do damage. Sugoito has a hardness of 25 (adamantine is 20). Damage is as per normal.
>>11044>her underlying motivations are vengeance, justice, and malicious destruction upon those who she sees (and in some cases are, though perhaps not to the degree of severity that she sees them) as being predatory, themselves malevolent, or just plain stab-worthy.A lot of it's just edge for the sake of edge, but this is certainly true to a certain extent.Most artists just set her on characters that seem stab-worthy at the time, like a memetic attack dog (not an artist, but this includes me as well. I started shipping them because of her association with Death): in this, she reflects the vengeful edge of 4chan culture; like how faggots on /mlp/ keep talking about killing the characters they don't like. Because she represents the boards collective rage, especially infamous characters, like Flash Sentry, are also often depicted with her. She's also considered the Grim Reaper of OCs, killing various OCs that somehow manage to be less original than her.The idea to ship her, instead of having her kill him (for now), was just my own touch. Basically a new way for an unoriginal April Fool's joke of an OC to have a role on this April Fool's joke of a board.>>11051Think of how Anakin Skywalker slowly turned into a megalomaniac after he had that vision that his Waifu and child would die, and you'll have a glimpse of what could happen in the Bad Ending.>>11047
She's still at the crossroads, trying to find a path to take that won't put her on a single-file line to nowhere.>>11053
Her shift in character was largely due to the appearance of another mount like,
seriously. It activated more than a dozen extreme triggers at once.
. I actually should've accounted for that happening...
Her current trigger is she needs to prove herself reliable and trust worthy if she wants to be waifs/mount/mother material. (I love that combination). Not one missing coin. I don't think there is any way my character could have been less subtle
Addtly, the booth is stuck to the Tower. Its pretty blatantly haxxor, but not as much as the stick.
Fae can go a number of ways. She was intended to be a proper, distinguishable, and useful mount, but I suppose she is as easily canned and replaced. TBH I thought you'd like her, but I'm open to new options. She is loyal certainly, but she didn't anticipate horsefuckery and may be having some, not doubts but misgivings?>>11057
1d10+7 on a sunder-strike
How many levels does Tracy have in Wilder?
Also, I assume she has two in each prestige class?
No no, she's a fine mount, I just want to know if she'd ever refuse to carry out an order under the wrong circumstances >1d10 on a sunder strike
I have absolutely no clue what you said there
While we're on the subject, what does trumpaldin have in whatever classes? Prestige and what not
>not willing to go that far with egghead shit
I have job applications to do
Also, do I cast Death Knell on an enemy before or after killing them, to gain the benefit?
Sunder = attacking a weapon, object, or tool. Its a 1d10 weapon, +4 against ppl but +7 against non-people.
Basically, (again using the heavy mace example) you'd need a 3 or better to snap it in half.>>11062>wuts he got
You're asking me? The staple answer is "Paladin", but you're welcome to get creative
<sunder cont> and actually, even that's not true, as that doesn't account for strength bonus. Its pretty much the ultimate "break your shit" stick.
Perfect. He can attack twice in one turn with a two handed weapon right? And does "smite evil" exist in this permutation? Can it be cast while mounted?
I call upon thee, D&D autist: what are Trumpaladin's classes, prestige or whatever. Assume points are mostly allocated for the duel goals of being a pope and being a president, and constant grinding for strength points (playing football), diplomacy (making deals), and religion (football again). I guess also more general charisma in much less common speeches (assume maybe 4?)
>>11067>Assume points are mostly allocated for the duel goals of being a pope and being a president
That sounds like High Proslytizer.
If you take the Required leadership feats, you could easily take the epic prestige class upon level-up (or we could just bullshit it and assume you took all the leadership feats before level-up, so you could have two levels in it.) Technically, you need to have really high knowledge of nature to take it, but Football is nature anyway.
The other perfect prestige class for a Paladin is Divine Emissary.
Both classes would give you Yuge access to Divine Spells.https://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/SRD:Divine_Emissaryhttps://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/SRD:High_Proselytizer
This isn't DnD anyway; it's Mixed Nuts: there's no need to be rigid, so long as the memes are good.
Also, GM, please check me for bullshit. I really will buff Tracy into Darth Vader if left unchecked. I only just got into this, so I might be giving her more shit than is possible.
>>11068>GM, please check me for bullshit. I really will buff Tracy into Darth Vader if left unchecked
This please. Competition is no fun if unwinnable
Also someone photoshop please
>>11068>All those numbers
Uh... Were we supposed to be keeping score? Also, I think it says 24 religion OR nature, so a high religion score will suffice, which is more plausible. Divine emissary looks like it has required feats that haven't happened yet
the gm has been doing that for us dont worry.
>>11070>so a high religion score will suffice
You're right. The nature thing is so that Druids could take it.
epic level stuff is generally level 20+
I've been grinding Spot since day one, but I'm still not sure if Tracy can be a Guardian Paramount.
Sorry fam, I'm not at my best today
Does anyone else worry this distracts too much attention from the main board?
Also, if you see me tomorrow, shoo me off. I need to conserve battery on my phone for navigating through a strange and new city
I think we could do for some Meta discussion, both in and out of thread.
To the first, not egregiously. Since these threads are 'hidden-ish', it seems that anons know there is stuff going on but are not having it shoved down their throats. TBH, these threads are the fastest threads on the board and unless one is 'on board' I assume they are dismissed as "those autists doing their thing".
Alot of the mainboard discussions are not time sensitive, and given a havily /pol/ base for Mlpol, alot of anons minds are made up wrt disposition and perception, the rest is just bants and IMOs.
<cont> Since the babby cup, and the numerous (much I assume, from Mlpol) calls for "bring back /mlpol/" I've had the opportunity to recognize that regardless of intentions, a gross (double-entendre intended) majority of 4chan users - in spite of claims to the contrary - want/DEMAND to be spoon-fed. Simply, they want maximum gratification with minimal investment/participation. That's not a criticism of individuals, its an assessment of the culture surrounding.
This thread showcases particularly a small handful of anons who are invested to a degree beyond "gibs me", which desu was among my foremost agendas from the get-go. This campaign was initially designed to redpill IRL associates through buzz-words, references, etc., but the lot of you who have stuck with thus far are also engaged in a creative exercise.
Foremost was the idea that "One practices creativity by expressing creativity, so I'll provide a context and we'll see where we go with it", but also integral is/was the recognition that one DECIDES to actively participate/involve themselves in a lengthy endeavor. Who knows what might have come of 4/mlpol/ if more anons hadn't said (and I'm paraphrasing from various MLP resources on the web) "aww shucks, they canned it. oh well, back to the old boards then". Said resources still lack any mention of Mlpol.net, which to me speaks of gross negligence (bias removed) lack of lasting interest.
>>11079>This campaign was initially designed to redpill IRL associates through buzz-words, references, etc
The Game needs more of that stuff, desu. It could use more meme-tier enemies and references to globalism, Jews, communism antifa, shills, reddit, Starlight Glimmer.. etc.
Meme-tier enemies get me excited (would've invented a reason for tracy to spring towards the Z's if you could've given them an /r9k/ reference)
There could at least be a reference to her having been defeated previously.If we ever face Starlight, she had better be unfair and overpowered as fuck.
>>11082i hope she kills most of us and torculi saves us.
>>11083>Tracy getting killed while pregnantYou'd better not revive her then...
>>11084the baby gets revived aswell dont worry.
Count on it, I had planned both. Still, I'd like to metaphysically help put the last nail in George's coffin if you don't mind my saying.
>>11085Fetuses are delicate. Either way, the prospect of having lost her baby once would shatter her mind beyond repair: Just look at what happened to Lauren Faust.
Also to the initial meta-question, I feel the answer is "no". Whether more anons lurk or participate ITT, we ARE helping to build a general sense of enthusiasm for the board. These threads account for ~ 1/10th of the full post count, and while some posts are just die rolls, corrections, or tiny snippets, if you go back from the beginning and read (which I highly suggest, its weirdly nostalgic) this 'experiment' has grown its own set of wings.
>>11088>These threads account for ~ 1/10th of the full post count
For /vx/? It has to be much more than that.
No, total. I crunched the numbers 2 days ago, we're just shy of 10k posts.
>>11087yea but still im a level 15 cleric i can heal all the wounds.
>>11091>all bysical wounds
Cuz dhey heel
>>11091Yeah, but her only lifeline to sanity is being able to be a mother at this point. Failing to protect her child even once would mess her up beyond repair.
No worries though; she won't be taking the same risks she used to now that she's going to be a mommy.
>>11090>our autism has taken over /mlpol/
I told you it would come to this, the autists have taken over
Autists will inherit the earth.
I have brought peace, freedom, justice and security to my new empire.
Similar to how ponies and politics are a volitile concoction of autism; games and the paranormal are a frightening power when combined.>>11097
But what happens when you add>ponies+politics+games+paranormalDoes this also techinacly make us the most active users?
>>11093>has guardian devils
Shhhh, rest now.>>11094
Taken over nothing. I unironically hope to see more such autism throughout the board.
>>11100>I unironically hope to see more such autism throughout the board.
6 gorillion times this.
>>11100>spreading autismSo who wants to tell the OC thread that Tracy is now Pregnant according to an agreement with Atlas
>>11102I think 'agreement' is a stretch; 'tacit acknowledgement' might be more accurate
Same difference in my eyes
>>11102When Tracy reaches level 3 blackguard,
I might be tempted to use her evil powers to give everyone autism...
>>11106To that end, it is only the allegation of rape and impregnation that was decried as fake news, the 'other' incident hasn't been publicly mentioned
Whoops, wrong link. Still, that's a whole new concept of weaponized autism
>>11111>Didn't even mean to take the GET>Was implying that Tracy would use her evil powers to create a plague of weaponized autism
S-Stop checking it! She can't be married to the Paladin if she does that (he could cure everyone's autism, if it came to that, though).
Alright, night all, I'm sure I'll be spending the entire fukkin' day thinking about the discussion here instead of doing my job. Take care!
>>11118>I'm sure I'll be spending the entire fukkin' day thinking about the discussion here instead of doing my job.
I'm more guilty of this than I'd normally care to admit...
>>11107>the 'other' incident hasn't been publicly mentioned
Fae was witness to it. She could testify that there was horsepussy on that fateful day, just like the prophecy foretold.
i wonder if norwayanon ever got an idea?
Now why can't she be married to the Paladin if she does that?>>11122
I can ask him
go for it but dont pressure him.
Well, if you consider autism to be a potential force of good, then there's no problem.
I am increasingly feeling like the child is supposed to be the anti-Christ or the key to some great evil
Just checking to make sure it is understood that marriage is to be earned through proper wooing, not taken as a given nor taken by force
or maybe it will be elway.
>>11126>the child is supposed to be the anti-Christ
You're thinking of Flurry Heart.
>>11129that thing is worse than glimmer imo
>>11129>implying we know it won't be Flurry Heart>>11128
I'd put my money on being the anti-Christ
You better hope Tracy starts staking some steps towards Lawful Good, or else I think you'll be standing just in precisely the wrong place when this crazy train derails
>>11087>Fetuses are delicate
Sure would be a shame if she suffered a physical injury that caused her to miscarry...
>>11130She will be the End of Equestria.
The moment she was born, her wings were already big enough to level all of creation. Her wail, not unlike a banshee, foretell the doom of all living beings.
Nightmare Blizzard of Ragnarok, when?>>11131
The child will be borne of both Light and Football. Such a child could wield all good powers freely, and more importantly, have the gift to choose his/her own destiny, whether he wants to be president, a businessman - who am I kidding - He'll be both!>>11133That's why she is destructible.
hahaha NOPE. Trumpaladin will have the chance to rectify his sins. That can have whatever consequences it would have in game, but it will be his actions to take.>Being of both Light and Darkness
I think you meant to say a Being of Light, because Trumpaladin ain't havin' no damn mulatto child>have the gift to choose his own destiny
Well that's just one more reason to get him away from his mother. While I do like the theme of self-determination, I don't think it should come at the expense of the player's self-determination. Should Trump need to go Sarah Connor, I think it should be allowable, and the same with all other playersI will fucking ban you. No really, /vx/ is my board. Atlas has made it clear I can make whatever rules for /vx/ I want and I can do what I want with it, bans, thread deletion, locks, and so forth, possibly up to board deletion. Fuck with me and I fuck right back
Can find the pic, but here's one
Think I found it
>>11134>That's why I'm buffing her to make her indestructible.
Becomes ---->>That's why she is destructible.
Y U DO DIS?I guess I kind of deserve it though at this point...>>11135>Should Trump need to go Sarah Connor,
It's funny. A few of my development charts for Tracy were actually based off of her...
Because the Tracy Trumpaladin thing is not a meme from within this game. It's a meme from a namefag or persona or whatever I developed back in July that I'm damn sure most of you intend to use outside of this. As I think one of you said "what happens here is board cannon." So I care about what happens here. Also I have the power to do it.>a few of my development charts
Did you literally write this stuff out?
Also refresh your page
Okay, I completely misread that situation. I thought >>11134
OMG teh kek! I'm supposed to be sleeping, and instead I'm dying!!
Also, that 'light and darkness' horseshit is just some edgy line from some awful show I saw more than a decade ago. The child, if carried to full term, only has positive upbringings (i'm not such a fucking edgelord that I'd set a baby up to be a super-villain); even in the case that Tracy has a tragic ending (there's no point in having a tragedy if there's nothing to be learned). I stated earlier that Tracy would absolutely make sure that her foal lived a better life than she did, no matter what the cost. The foal will be safe from the forces of evil, even if he has a murderous mother grizzly for a parent.
I actually made a very vague development draft for offspring between the two characters. Of course, a child between two powerful characters would be a superior individual; like how Alexander's famous steed, Bucephallus, was descended from the Dreadful Mares of Thrace also, potential Barron references
>>11139>Did you literally write this stuff out?
Well, partly. Only the essential roots, so I can keep everything in character while still constantly changing the structures.
>>11143>No matter the cost
Does that include becoming a better person, or giving up the child to be raised by someone who isn't a psycho?>The foal will be safe from the forces of evil, even if he has a murderous mother grizzly for a parent
You see the contradiction, don't you? That's not a proper household for a child
Eh, I guess I have 1000 or more words of Trumpaladin backstory written and a tragic as fuck death story for both Trumpaladin and Tracy (especially Tracy) I thought of but did not write down. But eh
>>11145>implying a hysterical yandere wouldn't contradict her own logic
Well, I can say that the kid will be safe from harm from her. She won't part with her foal easily though. It'd take a lot of convincing and careful planning to make her give up the only thing she's ever genuinely wanted in her life.>wanting spoilers.
Wait and see. Anything is possible.>>11146
Most of my shit is just lines and numbers on various sheets of paper, desu. When I just type [hoers noises] it means a change was made, but I'm spent from the calculations to express it. I could do moderate prose and/or greentext that would make everything more clear, but I'm incredibly lazy when not provoked by something that makes me get obsessive...
There's also the element of keeping developments secret from the other players too. Maybe I'll clarify some of her actions and motives in hindsight later, if I find the energy.
>>11147>Letting a hysterical yandere raise my child
Nope.>When I just type [hoers noises] it means a change was made
Aww, and here I thought you were just making her sound cute
Don't get me wrong, I definitely do it for that.
A "change" may be something as irrelevant as a subtle shift in mood: something not important enough for her faggot to write out an extensive comment. If anything, it's just an indication that Tracy is aware of and involved with her surrounding and isn't just sitting around like a brainless animal.
>>11147>Not wasting yuge amounts of time writing well crafted prose to express subtle emotions
Okay, horse noises is probably a better idea
dont worry me trust tracy.

It's okay Inferius. It's just a term signifying those not of the chosen people. You've been serving us well
no it mean cattle,infernuis not cattle!
Yeah.. Upon crunching those numbers, I'm not sure Tracy can be a guardian paramount (she's pregnant anyway, so it'd be wrong for her to take hits for other players).. May as well forget about those feats for now..
>>11158>very slightly modifying image size to evade the one-per-thread image limit

Why would she do that?It's been a shitty day for me*resists urge to blog post
give in to the blogpost.
>>11161>give in to the blogpost.>yfw
>>11160>Why would she do that?
I planned that path before I knew she could be pregnant, as I was setting her up as the mount: she would basically make her rider invincible if she took that prestige class.
Oh I don't know, I can think of few more appropriate applications of 'taking damage for others' than babby
I still don't like this development
Don't get too excited, I haven't crunched the numbers yetyou asked
I'm taking that child, Tracy. You think it's yours and yours alone to destroy, but it's not
she not hurt babby,get it through head trump.
Kek, Trump gets to destroy it too XD

Hurt? PLEASE! I
won't let bebeh be hurt! I gots ideas!
I still think it came far too early in the story. It being here at this point feels like of those landlines that arms when you step on it but doesn't detonate until you've let off the pressure, creating a limbo where your foot is holding down an armed landline
I was thinking that too, yesterday. Today I'm good with it. ^_^
yes i too hate exploding telephones.
>>11178>can't write English>wants to mock a phone autocorrect
Is that the game you really want to play?
its just bantz m8.
I hope I don't understand what you meant by that
I doubt it, its quite the stretch, but if you ARE,....This is gonna be goooooooood
That aside, Guardian Paramount is very clearly an epic prestige class. Tracy does not qualify (25 dex for blinding speed??)
>>11176>It being here at this point feels like of those landlines that arms when you step on it but doesn't detonate until you've let off the pressure, creating a limbo where your foot is holding down an armed landline
Wow. That must feel terrifying.
>>11183>Forgetting about Tracy's maxed-out oral dexterity
You're right though..
Thez doesn't even qualify for epic feats tbh. That shit is for poorly balanced campaigns desu.
The fuck are you talking about?
Most epic feats require stats in excess of 20 without modifiers. Thats absurd for a bipedal character, even after level bonuses.
I'm guessing this is implied lesbian sex between Tracy and Thez at some point in the campaign
... no, I'm literally talking about epic feats.
In 3.5, the designation of 'epic' usually indicates "over character level 20". In spite of being Legendary (over 40) Thez still doesn't have the required stats to be able to learn epic feats.
>>11186>Thez doesn't even qualify for epic feats tbh.
Didn't see that coming.
I was actually looking toward Legendary dreadnought (so she could just push through everything), but it seems her base attack bonus isn't high enough for that either, even in her nightmare form.
I'll just hold off on her bonus feats until she levels up a bit.
are we gonna do anything tonight?

"Dear Bestest of Friends,
How is everyone doing? I can't imagine how much time has passed for you, but its been almost a year here and I miss you guys so much. George is absolutely furious and his armies attack daily, but now that I'm back there's really not much he can do against the House of Thez, and he can't set foot anywhere in the same plane as everyone, so I'm willing to bide my time until a solution can be determined. Will be determined. I had so much fun with you, I promise we'll meet again.
Tracy - I've been thinking. With all the things you've seen and done, is it possible for you to let go? I don't mean anything in particular, I mean relax. Is there a chance that you could trust not in yourself, but those around you? I sure hope so.
Trump - You're a good person, I never mentioned that before. I thought you were a bit of a dictator before, but in the intervening months I can see where your heart is at, and you're right; most people can't be trusted to make the right call, and sometimes you have to take the reins. How is the Football team going? I'd love to watch a game someday. Stop being so jewish with the treasure tho.
Torcuil - You're a great magician, who I'm sure will have stories told of him someday. Talk to Lenos. He told me once that there's really no difference between divine and arcane magic, except how one puts them into motion. The bracers require a bit of practice, but they've saved my hide on several occasions. Just remember, you don't need to move to move the shield.
I'nis - I never told you about the sleeves, be careful they are ancient and powerful. Do NOT use them without both the stone and the Girdle. It will be horribly painful if you do it right, and if you don't you'll get eated.
I heard what you said,... and um,....
Just don't go and die okay?
(those were all segmented to their respective characters, the rest is universal)
The jewelry contract I acquired through port Barry is progressing steadily so there should be sufficient profits to fund whatever you guys should need (meaning, Trump can relax, its paid for). I gotta go kill shit, but I'll write when I get the chance,... and there's paper.

"Sorry we got off on the wrong hoof, earlier. We're cool now, right?"
*produces spherical object from beneath cloak*
"I made you this ball as a consolation gift. Colts in this kingdom don't seem to have very many toys, so I thought I'd make you one. This one is very special, so don't lose it *stares* Alright?"

"Uhm,... its a ball," he says layered with suspicion.
"Yeah, a futbol. Do you know how to play?"
[1d20 = 6]>>11230
"I don't have time for games."
His discretely thrown kunai stabs the ground next to the ball.
"Perhaps I could use practice though." he concedes, blushing.
"Why don't you take this, and I'll give you some lessons when I get back? It's a great exercise in dexterity."
"Thank you. Considering you killed me last time, I'm surprised."
"Well, kiddo, let me teach you a lesson *stern look*: consider the risks before you decide to be the first one to pull a knife in a fight, especially against a lady."
He raises his eyebrow.
"As I recall, you were the one who sought to attack unarmed combatants."
>>11236>forgetting that Tracy drew her blade on the same turn she attacked
"Well, I'm sorry if I didn't make my intentions clear at the beginning, but the hoers dialect is slightly different here than it is in my realm. I didn't expect you to spring forward so suddenly though."
Will Hitler give us a sign, to point us towards which path leads towards the reclamation of the Jews' treasure?
Only if my french trips where a sign

, where she's could run around freely with all the other Clydesdales."
Torcuil decides to talk to Lenos
"Oh, you're saying it was a misunderstanding then? That your brandished blades were merely intended to intimidate?"
"What timing! Here, hold this," he says, putting precise amounts of liquid in a larger flask with another amount of liquid.
Eh, am I holding a bomb?
It explodes. Its not life-threatening, but he's been wanting to blow something/someone up ever since players got wise to the firebombs.
After he stops laughing he says, "Okkay, okkay, what's up?"
>she hadn't drawn her knife until he attacked
>I did this specifically, because I accounted for the fact that she wouldn't be able to talk easily with a knife in her mouth (wasn't sure if she could use her hooves in full-sized form)
"Well, a mare's gotta defend herself in this world, you know. Especially when there are edgy bois out there ready to spring at her throat without warning. I can't say they don't intimidate though; most attackers get confused when they see a horse with a knife.
Anyway, what's a colt like you doing with kunai knives? Where'd you get them?"
Thez told me to talk to oou about arcane and divine magic.
What do oou have to say?
He mutters "Bitch" under his breath.
"Yeah, what about it. I told her that in confidence you know, its not something to go singing to the winds if you catch my meaning,... but yeah. Magic is magic, and there are ways - if you do it right - to do any kind of magic. Its what is known (to the very few) as they Way of the Mystic Theurge.>>11252
"Kunai are not difficult to acquire. They're sharpened pieces of steel. I have more on me than you know," he says pulling another 2 from hidden compartments/areas.
i pray for a sign from hitler. gm why you no gibe answer?
"Its lucky you got a cross-axial palindrome," he mutters. "Alright,, let's head up to the dais then." Lenos leads Torcuil grabs a couple books from the Library before making his way up to the top.I gotta pass out, but I'll elaborate in the morning
A benevolently square-'stached voice echoes in your head.
"What were you expecting? These things take time. More on Thursday."
>>11253Tocuil write your name in draconic to prove literacy. Just do it.http://draconic.twilightrealm.com/

>>11254>My lies aren't working on this kid
"Well, you certainly have good taste in edges, kiddo. *tassels mane* I'll be on my way now, but don't forget to practice with that ball.*icy gaze*
"Well, goodbye then." *trots off*
Not much happened aside from some special letter from The. GM said he was turning in for the night.
You know it doesn't have to be this way. It's not too late
I made that futbol several weeks ago out of the skin on his own ass, with all intention to give it to him as a "Sorry I 1-shoted you" gift the next time Tracy met him. It would've been a waste to throw it away after all this time.
GM, please take note that any and all characters found to be possessing that Judeo-Bolshevik instrument are to be ripped apart limb from limb, burned, and their ashes placed in stone filled barrels dropped in deep water.
>>11268>she could have been a Bolshevik slayer all of these years, but chose to go down the part of wickedness instead
So she'd rather let go of the child than the child die?
I swear to God can your character go a single interaction without lying to someone? It's perfectly unnecessary in this scene.She's a perfect replica of my ex-girlfriend, especially post-break up. Are you actively trying to make me hate her?
Relax, next time its seen it'll be hanging in the stable, the black parts being used as individual targets for kunai.>>11272Would you like me write her in so you can beat the piss out of her?
tbqh, I was only doing it because I felt like playing around with the bluff skill. I'm not even looking at the character flowcharts.
>>11275>*reads thread while fully awake and sober*>'wtf am I doing? This isn't Tracy'>*Reads flow-chart development summary*>'wtf do I even use this godawful horrific system?'Actually, on second thought, this really is a load of horseshit at this point. I've been abusing Tracy's simple, unoriginal character with these goddamn convoluted mathematic flowcharts. Tracy, as a meme, is an unapologetic murderer, but by no means a liar. Ponies don't lie to this destructive magnitudeFug, in retrospect. These flowcharts were a mistake: in my endeavor to make the game more interesting, I let Hell freeze over and made a Tracy into something *shudders* original. Right now, she's closer to an actual hysterical woman than an edgy magical pony. The best part about ponies is that they're not like real hoo-man women. Fuck! What have I done? This isn't waifu material.Yandere Calculus was a creative writing theory that I made years ago when I was a edgy weeb faggot; it was largely based on dramatic horror anime and Greek tragedy, and worst of all my ex-girlfriend. This shit isn't suitable for simple-minded magical ponies: it was developed to maximize the most horrific possible dramatic plotlines possible from hysterical women. If i followed the development summary in sincerity (which I never do), Tracy would've been a genuinely evil, poisonous creature by now.
I'm going to take a different approach from now on. I'm going to burn most, if not all of these infernal flowcharts. Expect leg-humping when I'm not sure what to do: it'll keep things Unoriginal.
Only you can make her into waifu material, but I'm not going to allow this fucked-up system I created to actively campaign against it too much anymore. I'll cut the lying bullshit and try to make her a bit more transparent.
>>11274No, I'm just fine with her being gone forever and never seeing her again. Besides, Tracy fills the role disturbingly well.>>11246Why is she trying to flatter him and make nice? What does she stand to gain? She's sure she can beat him in a fight, so why wouldn't she rather mock him for failing so miserably the last time?
Well, back then, I was going to have her be smug and condescending to him, but that was before GM made him into a Colt (there's nothing to be smug about after killing a kid, regardless of how edgy you are). I just got bored and felt to condition him so I could casually bully him later, just for some much-needed comic relief, since Tracy is the only one who can actually talk to him.
She has nothing to gain, and no reason to care. I was just in a shitty mood, and set aside character development for a while to larp as the Rogue for a bit, and felt like seeing if he'd fall for the 'farm up state' thing.
it wasn't really supposed to be a representation of her character; i just got lazy and bored and did something unnecessarily evil.....
I haven't been sleeping very much lately, and I get weird ideas when I write at midnight. I'll try to be a better larger in the future, because Tracy's character isn't going in the direction I wanted her to.
>>11277For what it's worth, if Trumpaladin had witnessed Tracy first lying to Ponimaru, and then possessing a soccer ball, that would have triggered a duel to the death between Trumpaladin and Tracy, which Trumpaladin would not have let end until between himself, Tracy, and the unborn child, one or more characters had been permanently removed from the game.
The child is a game breaking change because it prevents Trumpaladin from overlooking Tracy's actions and alignment and forces him to obsess over it. Unlike my ex-girlfriend, who went her own way doing who cares what in Dallas, the child is a direct connection between Trumpaladin and Tracy that prevents a proper and thorough divorce. The fact that the child is the product of a failed attempt to save Tracy from herself just makes it that much more insulting. It's like having a cousin who you don't particularly like but you want to give a chance, so you pay a large sum of money for them to attend classes at the community college so they can get a certification, but they withdraw from classes, take the money and spend it on drugs or invest it in a criminal scheme. It's insulting beyond measure
>>11281S-sorry... I'll try to play a bit more thoughtfully from now on, and not just act like Two-Face playing Snakes and Ladders...
>>11282Nah you can play as you wish, but I don't think I can be honest to this character without almost all possible courses of action leading to disaster. I blame GM for introducing an event that prevented Tracy from having a natural development
>>11283Rooooo! I will make it work!
So, I guess the message is that she gets the intuitive thought to turn back to box town?
It's not that
far from the crossroads, right?
*walks back up the path towards Pip*
GM, where are we in the game? I would like Trumpaladin to try out his new Subaru or however the hell you spell it, and figure out how it plays out in a fight, and to also see if the resurrection tool is transportable. After that is accomplished, I would like him to rejoin the group riding Fae
Another question: are we using a permutation with "smite evil," can it be cast while mounted, and would casting it consume an attack space in a turn?
According to the Wiki, Smite Evil can be applied to any normal Meelee attack, and can be use 4 times per day at level 15.
It should be usable while mounted.
I think the Paladin was also supposed to have a Bless Weapon ability, but I can't find it...
Roooo! All I wanted from the beginning was the Assassin Prestige class, but I still have to make a hit to take it.
How do spells even work in this game? I've never RP'd before...
when you say spells do you mean spells that are used for buffing or spells for attacking?
So... Would Smite Evil consume an attack space?
yea spell-like abilites take up attack actions.
Well, any, really...
Then again, it seems I've figured it out. Tracy's a mudpony, so she can't use any spells except for blackguard spells while in Nightmare form>>11295
It's applied to a normal melee attack, so you should just be able to add it on to any attack that involves one.
Paladin can use other spells, btw.https://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/SRD:Paladin_Spell_List
well buff spells and attack spells both take action slots,
Ah, idk how this works desu.
I actually avoided reading into the attack mechanics because I wanted to avoid D&D tier rigidity. My only real interest was prestige classes.
>>11160>very slightly modifying image size to evade the one-per-thread image limit
Those were three separate versions of a shoop I modified. I was trying to see which looked the least shitty.
Damn these are some useful spells, especially for my intended purpose
>>11301>tfw you know you're a bad girl
*rolls up newspaper*
GM, what is my spell casting level? If I am not to 3, is there anyway to access specific spells in that category? There's one specifically I really want
>4th level spell casting Paladins are damned near unstoppable slayers of Evil and Outsiders
HOW DO I MAKE THIS HAPPEN
you have 1 4th level spell.
how to acsess higher level spells.>leveling up is how you gain more uses
Apology accepted Xp>>11283
I had thought
that it would enable
a more natural development. Just one more of my ideas into the can>>11287
Tbh, I'm not exactly sure. I'm going to have to re-read the last 3-5 threads just to pick up on all the things I've forgotten, missed, or just couldn't be arsed to respond/comment on. This was just one of the many reasons for the 2-3 week jump.
... in fact, the contract which Thez arranged - and which Trump is explicitly and permanently not included in - involves taking raw gold/gems, taking them to an artisan of absurd skill, and turning them into fabulously expensive jewelry that is for sale exclusively at the Port Barry shop.
But OH no, TRUMP needed it to BUILD shit,.... XP
... it was/is essentially a money-hack also geared toward re-establishing Barry's filed pirate contracts due to the rats invasion, increasing trade and travel to the port.
But Trump HAD to have a stadium first,....
(this is mostly Thez ranting at this point)
>>11328>selling goods to people in a city with no money when there's a port RIGHT THERE and it could have brought a positive balance of trade from export
Never accused her of having business sense
>>11329He used eminent domain to make himself a steakhouse too.>>11331
Not selling your exclusive jewelry all over the world FROM the port.
No you buffoon. Don't make me rewrite the game history 'cuz you won't admit you're wrong. The goods are sold to the lingering travelers who still minimally arrive there. The quality of the items is such that even the smallest ring would fetch a hefty sum and would draw the attention of monied (read royal) interests from across the land.
And what's more, all the artisan in question wants is more materials to make shit WITH, he's not taking ANY of the profits.
Do you go to Tel Aviv or Brussels to buy Diamonds? No? Do you go to Germany to buy cars? Shanghai to buy Televisions? Didn't think so
>>11335>tel aviv>another point for the jewish plot.
>>11334>>11333>saying all this shit long after it is irrelevant
You could have said any of this to a very receptive audience at any point earlier in the game. You could have given hints. I even asked about the business deal at the time and nothing came of it. None of this was at all foreseeable from anything in the game or outside of it. All you said about Thez and gems was that she wanted the smaller ones to wear herself, and much later, that Thez willingly gave Trump possession because she believed he was doing well with it.
Did you ever consider what could happen if Lenos, a dragon mind you, ever grew angry or bored with anyone living at the tower? Enjoy exploding.>>11335
No, you have them imported, from Brussels, Germany, or Shanghai.
Port Barry is a port: Half of it's purpose is to export
Tel Aviv is host to a large diamond exchange. If you buy diamonds, you just might be supporting the diamond industry of Tel Aviv
i know that, thats while i avoid jewlry all to gather.
Hence why it is better to sell the goods internationally
Why would he be angry?
>>11341>international trade>not globalism
>>11343>not being an economic nationalist and winning in global trade
That's what GM has been getting at.
The Jewelry shop was supposed to be the money farm. He hinted at that a couple weeks ago.>>11342
Idk, people living in his tower, asking him to make shit, and depending on his abilities, without caring to give him a cut of the treasure to work with.
The only mention of the jewelry shop came last week. And while Tourcil may be at risk from explosion, no one else asks Lenos to craft things
he loves making shit, the gm said thats what he oes without wanting something in return.
Yeah, I got that much. He wants materials to tinker with.
It was hinted weeks earlier. At the same time the Jews' shekel stash was hinted at.
1. What are you talking about?
2. You could have spoken at any time
3. Literally anyone could have said something at some point
but he dosent charge for an item though.
Its true, Thez was excited at the prospect of the Football stadium,... but not the Casino, or the Steakhouse, or,... and as time went on and Trump immediately got jewy-eyed anytime a resource was even hinted at or suggested, her enthusiasm diminished. So, at THAT time, she took possession of what ducats she could, literally coughed up some of her own, and made a deal with the artisan (who shall remain nameless to avoid REEEEing), as well as the jeweler. Nothing was mentioned 'cuz Trump had proven that he could not be trusted with resources.
>>11346>Thinking the Crystal converted into a Trump Tower by itself>>11351
Yeah, brownies normally work without pay. They don't take kindly to being treated as unappreciated NPCs though.>>11350>What are you talking about?
I'm talking about the Time Infernius went to the out-of-stock jewelry shop, and Tracy sniffed around while she was looking for hints to where the Jews were hiding their treasure.
The guy was going to change the shop, but then Thez came in with a bag of amazing items, talking about a certain artisan who wanted to have his crafts gain recognition in the trade.>>11352
This, desu.That eminent domain this wasn't exactly the coolest move either...
The casino was nothing more than a pretext to try to stop Inferius from gebociding part of the town's population. It was never built not mentioned outside of one occasion>steakhouse
A pretext to thoroughly search the old Jew buildings for the missing treasure, cheap because of existing buildings, finance was never mentioned, and also could have brought profits (which, you know, could cover loans made to buy it. As in never using the party's funds). It was also never completed
>>11354>search the old Jew buildings for the missing treasureRoooooo! I'm the rogue! Leave the searching to me! You don't even have the character skills to investigate that.
>>11353>I'm talking about the Time Infernius went to the out-of-stock jewelry shop, and Tracy sniffed around while she was looking for hints to where the Jews were hiding their treasure.>The guy was going to change the shop, but then Thez came in with a bag of amazing items, talking about a certain artisan who wanted to have his crafts gain recognition in the trade.
what the actual fuck are you talking about? I don't remember this at all. I cannot read every single one of the literally 10,000+ RP posts that are made as a part of this game, and I cannot know everything that happens while I am in school, at work, driving halfway across the state, or flying to fucking Washington DC and New York for interviews. More to the point, why the hell would my character know everything that happened to people miles away and that he was never told about. He cannot be omniscient and should not be>eminent domain
First off, that's a joke. Second, it didn't happen because the buildings were abandoned. Thirdly, it was against Jew buildings that were unused. Forgive me for making use of available resources
Alright, I'm done Trump's brow-beating. He can have all the money he needs for whatever project,... but he has to go through the Jeweler. ^_^
How many levels does Tracy have as Wilder?
I have the character levels for contracting building renovation. And that's all that is needed
Well, I was going to have Tracy tell you about it, but I had to account for the fact that she was still salty from getting cucked that morning. My plan was to have her walk up the road alone to sort herself out, find the treasure, come back, and then tell you about everything (I figured you would've read it by then though)
Well, I'm not responsible for your saltiness, I am not sure if I am the one who cucked you, and I certainly can't know what isn't told to my character and didn't happen near him
I didn't expect it to take this long though.
I really don't know when in the story this is supposed to have happened
Some time right before you converted that shop into a steak house, while Tracy only just started looking for clues.
She's talking about you riding the Copper mare home that one time.
So to summarize, a bunch of faggots just had a shit-fit, while nothing worth mentioning happened between the characters.
No, Tracy already took care of that. I'm pretty sure that happened the same day Fae appeared in the tower: Tracy was deeply upset.
That happened over a month ago, and weeks before >>11364
In any event, if hints are going to be super-duper subtle, they need to occur more than once ever, and need to actually be communicated to both players and characters.
>>11368>if hints are going to be super-duper subtle, they need to occur more than once ever
This.>need to actually be communicated to both players and characters
Try buttering up your waifu; She has all the information-gathering skills.
It shall be so. I apologize for having assumed and/or taken anything for granted.
>>11366>a bunch of faghots just had a shit fit fit
It's ongoing, and really more of two separate consecutive shit-fits, but yeah, that's what happened
I'm not saying "Its the guy at the shop!", I'm saying that he was in an awful hurry to get rid of her.
Not that far, no. A couple miles is all.>wilder
I'm putting the limit at 3
>>11369>Try buttering up your waifu; She has all the information
If you are talking about Tracy, she could find it, but she'd steal a large portion for private use and then lie about the total size of the find. There's not really any way to discourage her from doing this either - when I am tried to but her up by appealing to her (non-existent) sense of duty to Port Barry or love for Trumpaladin all I got was "can we leave already?" indicating it didn't do anything. There is no buttering her up. If you leave money laying out, she steals it and lies about it when confronted, and she cannot be encouraged to do otherwise. I did think about having her find it, and there after finding where she hid it and taking it, but thars difficult. So I guess having Inferius accompany her and hopefully limiting the amount she could steal was the best available option, which is basically what I went with.
>>11374>complaining about another player snatching up all money laying about
It's all for a public use, and every character is aware of the money, and has the chance to say something. Taking cores for a wedding and then lying about it is different from dedicating part of a large treasure for a library in Port Barry
[5d20 = 34]>>11373>3
Fine by meIs it really worth it for me to go all the way back there?
I'll just go anyway.
*returns to shop*
*approaches building in stealth*
*listens furtively by window*
Search (shop interior)+ Spot (any entity inside) + another Spot (read lips) + Listen + Scent>>11374
She's only stolen once: the golem parts as they fell to the ground.
Idk if it was clear at the time, but I implied a few times before and after that she was hiding shit out of spite, because she was jealous and wanted attention.
What a shitty roll...
Noted, but I'm not going to launch into it at the moment
[1d20 = 4]>>11377
Forgot Sense Motive (most important)
>>11380Rooooo! You'll ruin my stealth.
It's fine though.
If you're going to throw out 5 skill checks in a row,... have you ever thought of establishing your skills?
Tracy's motives are unknown. She used to be more clingy and jealous, but as timr passes her actions have made less and less sense. Basically it's a case of "I do not know why she is doing any of this, but what she's doing is evil, the purpose is probably evil, and I fully believe she'd do it again."
Miscommunication and misunderstanding helps drive plot, so no need to clear anything at all up.
>>11384>establishing your skills?
What does this mean?
WHERE THE FUCK ARE THE CHARACTERS
Don't worry, everyone will be back at the tower before you know it. These are all "yet to happen" actions.
I mean I've been basing skill rolls off of a simple 20, which doesn't allow for modifiers or differences in degree of skill required.
Let me give you an example. A masterwork lock has a difficulty of 25, meaning the player would need 6 skill points in lockpicking in order to defeat it with anything more than a 20 (and in this case, a 19). Not knowing the iterated skills makes it far more difficult for me to explain the degree of how and why and what WRT situations, which is also why Tracy didn't sense anything from the shopkeeper in the first place.
Trump went back to Port Barry, leaving Tracy and Infernius at the crossroads to bring back the treasure. Then Tracy had an 'intuitive thought' (GM's hint) to track back a few miles and try to extract information from the shopkeeper on the road.
Torcuil is about to get a lecture from Lenos on how to into magic.
Sad Alex is standing frozen somewhere until his faggot returns, probably getting >raped by passing strangers.>>11388Are you going to teleport us back when where halfway to finding the treasure?
Trumpaladin stares out the window to the sea from his office in Crystal Trump Tower. He wonders if he could take a ship and a small crew, and sail far away from his problems
>>11389>doesn't want to allocate his skillpoints
What about race/species modifiers? Have you been counting those?
>>11391>Implying I wouldn't find you
No tbh. I've been letting the dice decide entirely.>>11390
TY. BTW, I'm assuming Sad Alex was a troll, if not Yak Lee/that faggot who blew up. I could be wrong.
Can't also you power-up skills by training?
I've been rolling all of my detection abilities 6 gorillion times per thread.
If so, can I eat him?
i call eating the angel.
Over time, yes. Please limit skill rolls to 1 per post so I can keep up.>>11396
Have you SEEN Death Note?
NO! The 'angel' is the best part!
would i gain good extra planar powers from eating it?>no i havent seen death note.
What the actual fuck
Don't eat him, I am not convinced he is a troll. He might be the same as yak Lee, but he also might just be a person who isn't a NEET, is busy, and may have thought the game is too fast paced
