The party has had a good talk, after nearly ripping its self to pieces. They may still rip each-other to pieces, but in spite of it all the Game will go on. The nerd and his pet are still in the stadium, kind of like in vidya RPG's where the villain is clearly occupying a particular space but the player wanders off to do side-quests and meta shit. The tower had been filled with frogs, salt, and vitriol, but all have been cleared out and things seem to be leveling out, as both players and characters sort their differences rather than figuring out how to cause the GM to have an aneurysm or go an hero on the whole thing. Also there's kittens. Whew, this is what you get when you mix games and the paranormal!
>>17413 I'm in, although I'm willing to wait for Nordbro and Taylor to set themselves up. If they haven't been scared away by all the recent faggotry. Would make for an awesome halftime show in the stadium.
>>17425 Sorry for the delay on that. Since he's a snake, you get an automatic +3 on bluff checks. Snek has 1/2 your hit points, has an Intelligence of 13 (though can't communicate except with you), otherwise the stats are consistent with the stats in the Monster listing. >>17426 Don't worry, I don't think anyone will permit sheisty candy.
Okay maybe not died, but fallen unconscious. Troll would've saved you in that event, but yeah. Careful now, you're squishy >>17442 >is extra-squishy This will be interesting. Being a CMC, (and having virtually no equipment or exp) I'm gonna give extra ranks in perform-singing. >>17436 Alright, but just note you only have so many bullets, and while they can be made, they'll be difficult to come by in any sort of quantity.
>>17450 IIRC, the 2 shots did a combined 56 or 57 damage, which would've put you under 0 (-10 is kill). >>17449 Thats good, cuz I was gonna reference that Ellen episode where she scared the piss outta Taylor. >>17448 That's alot of knives and sharp things. If you dump the treasure from the side pocket (you don't get quick-draw from the side pocket),... well how many sharps can you fit in a broom closet?
>>17455 I remember the one day a hippie (or what they are called) just came by one day and screamed to the farmer that lived with me that Trump would destroy the world or something. The farmer laughed and smiled the rest of the day. And I got extra candy.
>>17458 >easily surprised >>17461 Well as 'essentially' TS, she would be low strength, low constitution, good dex, better int, decent wis, and high cha. She'd have ranks in Appraise, Bluff, Concentration, Diplomacy, Hide, Jump (kek), Knowledge (arcana), Listen, Lots of Perform/Profession, and Tumble. I'll save feats for later, but I'm assuming light armor proficiency, and point-blank/precise shot (assuming decent training in firearms). Anything you'd like to add (personality, habits, behavior patterns, etc. to flesh out)? >>17462 Since you're choosing a 1 y/o Filly, you're going to be the least experienced in the party, but as a CMC you're gonna have a few ranks in LOTS of skills. Any weapons to speak of?
>>17466 What is CMC (tried to search without luck). For weapon I think I would like to have an.... hmmmm... I have no proficiency, but the wheat harvester my farmer used looked cool and I think could do some damage. So if there is something similar to that I want it. But I will settle for an hatchet or axe for now.
>>17469 No, they were on the tower waiting for you all to finish. Remember that listen check that I said "You hear a sneeze from the opposite side of the tower"? ^_~ Korak knew all about the all-gravity of the surface, and positioned his men so they wouldn't be seen. >>17472 Cutie Mark Crusader, and how about a sickle?
>>17471 And thus, knowing he had failed And no one would explode again He looked out upon the sunset A tear in his eye And Lenos muttered a single word "Bitch" Torc goes to talk to him about those modifycations >>17472 CMC= cutie mark crusader Deus vult
>>17477 >>17478 Alright then. Both of you are free to start. You find yourself in a bare room, made entirely of an opaque glassy surface. There is a single bed, with a chest at the foot of it, made of the same glassy surface. There's a single door that is open, through which you can see what appears to be a hallway.
>>17501 So many doors so little time. Well I guess I have to look in each room to see if there is anything exciting in one of them. I turn to the right and walk down the corridor looking into each room.
Alright. Multiple perspectives now, and I'm not going to bother sussing out where everyone was, I'm putting them at the base of the stairs. Taylor and Norway exit the door into a much larger hallway, map related. The structure is made of the same glassy substance, and there are literally hundreds of kittens milling about. At the north end of the hallway is the beginnings of a staircase, with a red-furred minotaur, and a dude in resplendent armor.
Meanwhile, Trump and Infernius hear footsteps approaching, as well as someone whistling a tune.
Alright, everyone (mostly) is approaching one another. On one end is the pegasus filly and a skinny blond girl with a guitar-axe, on the other end is a shiny human in resplendent armor, and the minotaur who is holding as many kittens as he can (which is alot, I'm thinking like 30)
The four in the hallway (as well as the 2 in the forge hear) "OMG THERE'S SO MANY KITTENS!!!" >>17572 Yes, but he went with Torcuil to modify pistols. (I'm gonna have to step up my game) >>17571 You can be, yes
>>17598 Torc walks in, guns spinning around his fingers "Guess who just became our snip..." Guns fall to ground as he sees the new party members "Well thats adorable as hell" Now torc has diabeetus from how sweet the filly is
>>17599 "I-i don't know. I think I was staying in the room there" >vaguely points in the direction of the hallway "But I am going to go back to the big red house the farmer I live with built in a while. I am a bit tired so I hope I don't have to wait to long before I go home."
Thez <whooofs (teleports)> from Infernius' arms and appears next to Taylor. "OMG! YOU'RE,... (reverently) Taylor Swift!" she exclaims, more blood shooting from her nose. Meanwhile, the kittens she was carrying are now crawling over Infernius. "OMGOMGOMG!"
>>17603 "Relax, the safety was on. I'm not retarded." Torc pics them up, and puts them in his belt. He crouchs down, and looks at the filly He then mouths at Trump "Who is she?" >>17604 No, no no no NO STAHP
>>17604 "Little Fillie. Little Fillie. I'm sorry I have to tell you this. It was very hard for me to hear too, very hard. You can't go back to the big red house or to the farmer. Not ever. You're going to have to stay here. With us. Well, somewhere on this world anyways"
>>17607 "I guess we're going to have to teach her how to operate an AR15 before too long anyways. She doesn't have a name. She came in here from the doors, like us."
>>17613 "Listen, she's little, scarred, and confused. Just let me handle it." Torc crouches back down, and pets the little filly "I promise we will explain everything later, but is there anything I can get you now?"
Alright, the characters in no particular order. (carry on, simple descriptions) Trumpaladin is very much like he appears in pic related Tracy likewise appears like her character Taylor Swift also, except with a battle-axe and a holstered .44mag Nor-filly is a purplish pegasus filly Infernius looks like a red-furred Iron Will (MLP) w/ a freaky-big sword on his back Torcuil looks like a bearded scotsman in tartan robes, carrying an ornate snake-headed staff, a pair of fine pistols on his belt. Thez is a purple devil with pink hair, her wings wrapped around her like a cloak and her tail around her waist like a belt.
Thez licks Taylor's shoulder. "Sorry, I couldn't help myself," she says a bit breath-taken. "In case they haven't indicated, (she tells everyone's names so characters can know them, refer to description post)
Alright, lets try and shoot for that time if at all possible, and we'll roll with how things turn out. I'm not concluding gameplay right now, but I am trying to arrange it so that everyone or as many as possible are collected.
Feel free to interact as you like, I've got lots of arranging to to. Also, feel free to ask whatever/however many questions, other players can probably answer and if not, I'll be in and out from here on. >>17672 >urge to shoop intensifies
Fug, I have so much binging to do now that Infernius shared those videos, but I'm confident that I'll be able to use them to dramatically increase the quality of the game. Trump, Taylor, and Tracy seem to have things well in hand, Infernius I assume is tending to kittens, while Torcuil practices with his shiny pistols, and Norfilly sleeps soundly in her new environment. Thez threatens to skin Lenos repeatedly if he DARES booby-trap Norfilly's room. I've got meta up the ass to work on, so pardon me as I get to it. I am going to ask that players without distinctive flags do some degree of namefagging so that I don't have a brain hemm.... >>17707 Blood shoots from both of Thez' nostrils, she's been peeking from afar.
>>17707 "Oh I see. You want to bathe in the blood of your enemies. I'm sorry to inform you that will have to wait until tomorrow, after we kill this fucker in the stadium. In the mean time, please make use of our finely purified water"
Trumpaladin repeats to himself "Furher Trumpaladin..."
>>17740 *confiscates clothes* >>17741 "I can recognize talent when I see it. I'm going to go take my bath before these autistic faggots pit us all to our dooms against that weird dog." goodnight everyone
Thez wakes up to the sound of the music and rushes to Infernius. "I'nis,... I hope you won't be mad,... but she's hawt. I hope you won't let it bother you though, you're still my favorite," she says lifting a wing and revealing her hip, on which the gemstone pattern shows a small picture (inspired by Tracy's cutie mark) of her tail entwined with his.
>>17743 "If you can do that here, there's so much I know you can do. So much talent. Our potential is unlimited. You'll get a hell of a lot more than a bathtub of blood, I can promise you that. And more than a solar system."
>>17744 "Let yourself not be discouraged. I'm not stopping till I have the stars"
>>17773 Trumpaladin, also thoroughly disgusted, contemplates taking vials of the blood to see if anything - one - needs ressurrecting at the entertron, and if anypony needs smiting. Or if he just needs bleach
>>17785 Trumpaladin takes blood samples, and tries to figure out where the hell it came from, hoping he doesn't accidentally resurrect a grizzly bear, or Korak, or a cougar or something while running it through the Entertron
>>17791 "I'm just suspicious of the blue one is all. But you. You have an amazing voice. You will impress all the peoples when we liberate their lands. You have an beautiful face, charms everyone. Charms me"
>>17780 "I hope you'll pardon my suspicious nature, its just so,... charming." >>17792 "I agree. Perhaps we could do a duet sometime?no pun" Thez asks meekly. "I'm a bit flustered by you, but I'm a world-class performer in my own right, and if we can ever find that damn city, I've already got a record contract."
>>17795 If you wanted, you could even do 3 smites in one full round attack (u get 4/day). Its not a 'cast', its a special attack. >>17797 Thez starts blowing bubbles in the blood, still looking meek. She's totally unaccustomed to someone so comely not being repulsed by her
>>17802 I must have misunderstood your meaning. There's a spell (I can't find it atm) that is named something like Smite Evil, but the paladin ability does normal weapon damage plus paladin level(+15) + charisma bonus (+3)
>>17807 "Well, unless that's what happens when you die in this world, I don't know of anyone waking up. There's a legend that says that killing the Terrasque might open a portal to wherever you want to go, but no one has ever succeeded."
>>17813 "Isn't everything a dream more or less? This is world of potential. Its been said that this world was created by the combined will of all the Gods. Here are brought individuals who have pleased, and in some cases enraged, various entities. Those individuals are given free reign to do with as they please, intended to be for the enjoyment of both the individuals themselves and whatever entities and deities that can perceive it. I like to refer to it as Final Fantasy Football."
>>17811 I am not sure, but if Tracy has a breastplate, those damn bracers, and a dexterity of 19, then she has an AC of +11 - +5 for breast plate, +3 for dexterity (she has a +4 modifier, but breastplates limit dexterity to +3), and +3 from the bracers (am I missing something?) So a first attack roll has higher than a 1 it hits (no smite evil, normal +15 on first roll), second attack has higher than a 1 (+10 attack bonus), and third attack has a 6 or higher (+5 third attack bonus), it lands?
>>17816 I'd have to double check the numbers (the breastplate is incomplete, so only +3), but something like that. Also, you keep insisting that Tracy's bracers are better than the ring shield; they're not, the bracers are +3 while the ring shield is +4 (2 for shield size and 2 for magical augmentation). "... devil." e_e >>17817 "If thats how you wish to see it, then yes. For me this is the only place I've ever had,..." glances at Trump and Infernius, "Friends."
>>17820 I think Tracy is just barely big enough to be in the "medium" category, so no additional points for that. Does an incomplete Breast plate still limit dexterity bonus? If so, that's a 19 AC for her, and if not, that's a 20.
I forgot I also have a +2 strength modifier on attack rolls. So a 2 or 3 to land on the first attack, a 7 or 8 for a second, and a 12 or 13 for the third
What is Trumpaladin's AC? His main armor has never been specified, but Full Plate makes most sense. That would be a +8. If the ring shield is called up, that's +4. The D&D rules say that armor bonus stacks, which I think means I can claim the magic chain mail bonus too... is that a plus 7 or what is it? >>17820 >Friends "So long as I am convinced I cannot slay you, you can call me a friend" >>17823 "Always"
>>17824 "Maybe. You haven't even been outside yet have you? This tower we're in is a giant floating crystal, capable of all sorts of energy fields. I'd have to ask Lenos you'll meet him before too long, but with the place's level of design, it shouldn't be impossible."
>>17825 +8 for the plate, +4 for the shield, another +8 for the suit As for the dex bonus/penalty, yes "Why don't ye tell them the whole story ye craven wench, I'd like to hear it meself!" Vandereim taunts.
>>17829 "He's usually milling about downstairs in the forge, but with all the naked he's probably monitoring from the top of the main staircase at the control interface." At the sound of Vandereim (Trump has an intelligent sword), Thez breathes a deep and heavy sigh.
As Trump lifts Vandereim, the sword calls out "I am Vandereim! The Masterful, Mystical, Messianic, and Metaphysically Most-Magnificent Bastardsword!" a light shines down from somewhere and a sound of "Ahhhhh" can be heard from the periphery.
Footsteps can be heard approaching. "Wait, wait,... did she just say magic doesn't exist? Wew!" Entering the room is a 2' tall fellow with gold and black striped hair, wearing an ornate robe and a man-sized, curved bladed dagger slung over his back, and an intricate cylinder hanging from his belt.
>>17858 "Yeah, as a matter of fact you can. Magic is measured by the intensity of spell and the degree of effect," the little fellow says drawing closer. "This is Lenos. Lenos, this is Taylor," Thez offers.
>>17863 L> "Math? You're looking at it all wrong. For some magic is a matter of combining attributes of items, words, gestures, and symbols. For others like me," his expression sharpens, he focuses on the ceiling and stretches out his hands in a triangular shape. Like a flamethrower, a huge gout of flame gushes forward splaying all across the ceiling (not catching fire, its glass-ish), "its a matter of inherent ability," he concludes.
>>17861 GM, you never stated Tracy's actual stats while in the Cauchemar form. You did say that she only counts as "large" and not the regular" huge. Are we going by Druid wildshape rules where equipment is melded into the new form?
Also, how is Tracy able to make three attacks? I see that a level 15 rogue can do it. But a level 13 can't.
>>17871 Thez and Lenos both look at Tay like she just said something silly. L> "How about this then?" Lenos pulls out his rod no pun and pushes a button along its surface, sending forth a short (this time) stream of about 40 more kittens.
>>17874 I get you, I'm just describing it how Lenos - a sorcerer - would. >conservation of mass 40 kittens from essentially a full-size mag light? After earlier spraying hundreds from the same mag light?
>>17876 Teleportation, pocket dimension, compression of the kittens into an area of smaller volume but equal mass. I don't know. Star Trek has done similar. Of course Star Trek pretty much had magic. All I am sure of is that we now have to look out for the welfare of more kittens.
>>17878 "consider it sufficiently advanced technology"
Lenos sighs, looks over to Tay's axe and casts Animate Object. The axe springs to life and starts bouncing around. "Sick 'em," he says. The axe growls and starts chasing the kittens, which start hissing and running away. The axe chases them out of the room.
Thez gets up out and stretches for a moment. "Well I'll leave you two three technically, I forgot Infernius never left, my faggot needs to sleep. Lovely to meet you Tay, we'll have lots of fun tomorrow I'm sure," she waves before vanishing with a <whooof>.
>>17910 "Nah, she actually has a soft side to her. There was this unicorn I thought she was going to kill, but I found out later she actually befriended. She's got a soft side to her. You two will be as sisters, believe me. She respects your edge, and she can respect the edge in taking her husbando"
>>17914 "Well, if you're really unsure, we can just ask her tomorrow. But I tell you she'd be completely okay with it, especially you, since she likes how you appreciate her edge. Nothing wrong with multiple waifus.
>>17915 "Hey Inferius! Glad to see you woke up. Tay and I have been talking. Thez is asleep."
>>17914 "I'm serious though that I think you could really add to the team. Hearing what you said about Erde... It really made me think of what we could all accomplish. Together. And damn are you beautiful when you sing. Well, you're always beautiful, but I mean your performance is powerful. I hope it is put to good use tomorrow"
>>17941 No, I meant 9a. It's 6p in Norway right now, I was going for optimal overlap. >>17941 I'd go for resistance then. Protection is what Thez used to survive Lenos' dragon-breath, whereas resistance is more for gradual damage/round
>>17948 He wasn't penetrated, he was forcefully sat on. >cutlery Not in the quantities that she's asking, she's already got a broom-closet full. And she shouldn't expect the majority of them to be 'melee-grade'
>>17950 What, for the >rape? Nah, context my dude. Troll either hadn't ever gotten any, or hadn't in a very long while. Here's this otherwise upstanding dude, obviously infatuated and spilling his spaghetti. She decided to both give him what he seemed to want, while also making him suffer for being awkward, but not in a way that would completely traumatize him (a little, but not a lot).
>>17954 Oh gawd, you're going to reference seating areas in combat aren't you? K ~_~ The entertron is permanently fixed to the tower, and removing it will completely disable it (its linked to the field that operates the tower) >>17955 Your bad for saying "I love you" to a hoers named Trollestia at virtually the outset of a date. Xp
>>17954 As for input, a single scrap of dna is all that is required.
For the proceeding fight, there will be 3 types of "out-of-commission". Down, Kill, and Splat. Down can be healed, Kill needs a revive, and Splat means Entertron only Thez could revive Splat, but then she becomes splat herself and that takes a LONG time to regenerate >>17957 Taylor Swift is rapidly becoming my favorite pop-culture figure
Another thing to note, with all the modifiers, stats, tables and considerations I CAN GUARANTEE that I will make errors and mistakes. I will do my best, but I am more concerned with maintaining the flow of gameplay than making sure I remember each and every combat modifier or whatever. If I make a glaring mistake, please correct me and if its timely I can re-script the occurrence, and if it is not timely I will gladly make amends in the next occurrence. Also please don't issue too many commands at once, as both the variance of the auto-update, possible time lag of posts, and other considerations will likely make this tricky to keep an idea of sequence. Again, I will do my absolute best.
Tracy is currently meditating as a Blackguard does in an undisclosed area and channeling wicked energies from the ongoing 4CC, as she prepares focuses her monstrous abilities for the imminent blood-orgy.
>>17967 No, the chain was crafted specifically so to allow for the full movement of normal clothes (cuz otherise a duelist suffers when armored). Also, paladins cast divine spells, so no worries. K, so I'm seeing Tracy, Trump, Infernius(?), Torcuil, Taylor (so many T's!), leaving Norfilly
>>17979 Lewds and explanations. Will give quick rundown in a minute >>17980 Thez walks in, the air shimmering around her from a variety of enchantments and a particularly strong evil aura. "So I guess we're doing this then. Infernius or Torcuil, do you have any protection spells, particularly for Taylor and Norfilly?"
>>17974 Tracy's was light (would've upgraded a while ago, but flying mounts can't fly with anything higher) hydra-skin barding, upgraded with the plates from giants' skulls. Did she have another does of vest oil? >>17980 Nerdy crap. It's basically degrees of armor heaviness/thickness. Higher class armor gives more protection, but also restricts mobility and spells. Bards can cast spells in light armor without interference. Would Taylor have a studded leather jacket in her wardrobe?
Thez pulls her mask out and places it over her face, assuming the form of Urri (a hide-scrap wearing hippy). >>18001 For Taylor I have a 9 Str, 15 Dex, 10 Con, 14 Int, 14 Wis, and 15 Cha. >>17995 For Norfilly I have a 10 Str, 12 Dex, 11 Con, 13 Int, 11 Wis, and 14 Cha
>>17991 Smart >>17995 "Awww, well I have a crude protection spell, but it should work" >>18003 >1 year old filly is stronger than Torc RIP in peace Torc's pride Well, whats left of it >>18004 "Oh its fine, just be a bit more careful"
>>18029 "Ah yes, something else" Torc pulls out a staff with a golden snake head. he throws it down and it turns into a giant constrictor. "This is Mr. Snek, he should be able to help you if you need" Torc casts no step on Mr. Snek and gives him intructions to help norfilly unless asked otherwise.
>>18039 If you're talking about what we discussed last night, that is going to have to wait. If you are talking about combat preperations, all I am asking her at this stage is that she get close enough to the enemy I can use her position to flank and attack the enemy with magic boots"
>>18025 Noted >>18027 Yes, for specific song effects (more in a bit) >>18030 Pegasus I though >>18033 #winning >>18040 U n me both, Lenos' faggot and I are assembling a lathe as fast as possible >>18041 That's a good idea
>>18044 >lathe Nice Torc inspects the pistols before the party heads out >Artillery Luger was a pistol carbine for use by German Army artillerymen as a sort of early Personal Defense Weapon. It had a 200 mm (7.9 in) barrel, an 8-position tangent rear sight (calibrated to 800 meters (870 yd)) I guess Torc will be our sniper today, with a adition of spells outta nowhere
