As discussed last week, the next story in the increasingly ridiculous SFQ universe is going to concern the special agent side of the world.Also discussed at the time was how most of the most fun elements of the original run of SFQ were the parts that were rolled up by the community. Instead of coming up with a main character myself and running with it I'm going with our initial thread being devoted entirely to character creation.The rules: Various attributes and pieces of backstory are going to be put up. Some will be something you can vote on, some will be something you can make a suggestion and a random roll for. You can vote on anything in the thread at any time as long as the thread is active, doesn't matter if it's midnight and everyone else has long disappeared. Nothing will be completely finalized until the thread 404s. I'm going to be around for a bit as well, so if there's a vocal outcry of someone having a great idea that got a terrible roll or an unworkable idea getting a natural 100 and the rest of everyone hates it we can DM fiat it. Also some things are vulnerable to DM fiat because of being unworkable, but I'll try to make whatever you guys suggest work.First up: The Agent.
Rolled 98Can we just be C. Viper? That'd be great.
>>23627559Well, looks like this quest is ruined before it even began.
Background>Raised by martial arts instructor.>Raised in a temple.>Raised on a military base.>Mysterious Amnesia ShitPre-Recruitment Career>Air Force (the nebulous branch of the Air Force that focuses on people wandering around fighting, not the part with actual planes)>Ikari Warriors>Tekken Force>write-inFighting Background>Roll 1d100 for who your fighting style is patterned on. High roll wins unless a clear majority of fa/tg/uys chooses a specific fighter.Fictional Secret Agent We Are Secretly Obsessed With>Same as our fighting style. The SFQ universe has all the same fiction we do except for fighting games - Metal Gear still came out for the PS1, James Bond movies still come out, Archer is still on TV, et cetera.Additional Facts: Varies. Originally wanted to be in a band, collects faberge eggs, paid for college as a luchador, whatever you want to throw out there and the other players think is a good idea or funny enough to work.The general gist is The Agent has recently been recruited into the U.N. equivalent of Delta Red and is currently finishing her training. Due to her highly developed close-quarters combat skills she's assigned to a new division that focuses on the rising powers of the martial arts community and the unknown threats they pose. The sort of agency that would have a response to M. Bison, that would send agents to the King of Fighters tournament to check it out, that would check in on Oro from time to time to see if he ever got his other hand unglued. I'm also taking suggestions for a silly acronym for this agency.
>>23627559No? But C. Viper could be a possibility for who our fighting style is patterned on.
>>23627559C. Viper is worst female Street Fighter.
>>23627640Viper is mostly a regular woman with some training. The only thing she really has going for her is the experimental stealth battle suit she got from SIN. Outside of the suit, she's not all that much.

Cammy's style is very quick and precise and no-nonsense, striking from some of the most amazing angles. There's a reason her codename is the Killer Bee.>Fictional agent: MacgyverAs silly as it sounds, Macgyver is actually a pretty cool guy. A true agent is inventive and clever, plus the guy as a character is appealing as well. He's still a good guy, and he acts like it, and that's inspiring.Additional facts:>Stationed in China for a while, our character, being something of a philanthropist, helped out at an orphanage for a while. This turns out to be the orphanage and kung-fu school run by the legendary Chun-Li herself, World Warrior legend and now-retired ("officially") Interpol legend. Our character immediately fangirls out, saying Chun serves as an example for the rest of Interpol and she's totally more beautiful in person and eeeeeeeeeeeee
Rolled 43, 81 = 124>>23627657I thought she was fun to play as, but Cody and Ken were always my go-to fighters so I never really practiced with her much.>>23627718First roll's for our second roll on this...>>23627819Second roll's for the second roll on this....looks like I need to watch some MacGuyver.I have no idea why this picture is in my SFQ folder. Our new villain, maybe.
>>23627909Macgyver's very straightforward. He's a pacifist that helps coach a Canadian hockey team, but his calling card is being able to juryrig almost anything just with what's on hand. He is resourcefulness incarnate.
>>23627938And don't forget his signature Swiss Army Knife.We should totally get the one that has a USB flashdrive as one of its tools.
>>23627938If we idealize a pacifist, perhaps our combat style should be more about holds and locks than kicking people in the face as Cammy is prone to doing.
>>23627963Our character likes him not necessarily because he's a pacifist, but because he has admirable ideals and is very clever and resourceful. Our character has come to accept that sometimes, a boot to the temple or a holstered pistol is just necessary.
>>23627963This >>23627981Also, MacGuyver does knock out people when needed. He just doesn't kill them.
>>23627642>>23627657I wonder if, at this point, Viper has been declassified as a CIA double agent by now. We're pretty sure she kept the suit as a windfall from her exploits during the SIN situation.
>>23627981Kinda agree with this. A pacifist character could work in the Street Fighter universe, but probably wouldn't go into a secretive peacekeeping force dedicated to smashing faces. Probably a doctor or the like? If ki exists and is accessible to most of the population (even fighters who don't access it directly display superhuman damage resistance and occasional physics-breaking feats, and 'unconscious use of ki' is the easiest way to explain that away within the setting), that means qi gong, acupuncture and various energy-related healing techniques could work. STREET FIGHTER QUEST: TRAUMA CENTER would be interesting, but a weird starting point for a story.>perfect the art of healing with chi>attack waiting room dispensing helpful hadoukens all over the place to the unsuspecting injured
>>23628083I like the idea.
>>23628083Dhalsim is a pacifist who fought on behalf of his village to make life better for them. Also, in SFxT, he teams up with Sagat because children are going missing from both their villages. Turns out Pandora's Box was taking them, and both of them reject the temptations of the box.
>>23628119>SFxTIs there any canonical explanation for that box? I've played through to a few team endings, but what is it/does seems inconsistent. >inb4 non-canon so Capcom didn't put that much thought into it
>>23628236SFxT as a whole doesn't count as canon and is more a dream match than anything; Pandora's Box is just passing justification for everything. However, there's a comic attached to the game that explains the premise behind out. A spectral silhouette in space decides to test humanity by creating the box and seeing what they do with regards to the introduction of this relic. Because a box that responds to conflict is a BRILLIANT idea.The retarted part is that the silhouette is presumed to be Ingrid, an honest-to-God Mary Sue who is probably noncanon herself.
Clearly I am behind on SFQ threads. Time to hit the archives.

>>23628404Ingrid is a cosmic entity, if memory serves.
>>23628385Doesn't mean you can't join this one! New starting point, new protagonist, new adventures! Also seriously only two people have weighed in so far. Maybe I need to make a twitter account to let people know when a thread goes up like that one anon suggested, or just make these later in the day or something.>>23628404>look this up, think it's probably from a non-canon manga that was terrible>character from a cancelled game>they liked her so much they put her in another gameReally?
>>23628483These threads last a while, so people will spot it sooner or later.
>>23628483It just makes the fact that Ingrid is behind Pandora's Box -- and, by extention, everything in SFxT -- that much sillier.
Rolled 85>>23628083This needs to happen, so badly. Imagine the fighting Chiropractor, who beats the shit out of a gang using a variety of sleeper holds, throws, and pressure points. When the gang wakes up, they see a new lease on life with their now pain-free lives, go back to school, get a job, become useful and productive members of society. The most powerful technique yet: Go Home And Be A Family Man Lariet.
>>23628483lets get started dudes.
>>23628554I also think we should do this the hold, throw and pressure point way. Also can this guy appear in the story?

>>23627718I cannot vote hard enough for MacGuyver.If we're going air force, possibly with a little bit of Jack O'neill thrown in for how we handle things and interact with people.
The majority of votes is still for Cammy as our style foundation and Macgyver as our spiritual liege.
>>23629464And also for being raised on a military base.
>>23629450Explosives everywhere. Just to make sure. If there isn't explosives SOMEWHERE you're doing it wrong. Also, Explosive-happy McGyver.
>>23629464I don't really like Cammy lets go with >>23628083 instead.
>>23629518We're a special agent, not a chiropractor.
>>23629538Maybe but i think it is more interesting than camys fighting style, so if not chiropractor the i would be going for >>23628780
>>23629581What's not interesting about being a human projectile?
>>23629601I dunno i just never liked all the jumping and kicking so much.
>>23627602>U.N. equivalent of Delta RedDelta Red is just a branch of the British special forces and British intelligence. It's only acknowledged as often as it is because Cammy is one of its top members, and they send her to compete because she's the close-combat specialist.
I personally would like to steer away from Cammy.I'm more a fan of going after the obscure characters and whatnotAlso i'm not a personal fan of Cammy all in all so there is that
>>23629673There are only so many characters within Street Fighter that act in any professional or government capacity, which is generally what we're drawing upon. Those characters are:- Chun-Li- Guile- Cammy- Charlie Nash- Crimson ViperAlso, it's hard to be "obscure" in a fighting game.
>>23629724I would include Twelve, but he was a test of an artificial soldier using NANOMACHINES.If you want to draw from the King of Fighters, there's also:- Blue Mary- Team Ikari Warriors>Commander Heidern>Leona Heidern>Ralf Jones>Clark Still- The now-mercenary special agents of the late Commander Ling>Vanessa>Seth>Ramon
>>23629724but we could just use fighting stiles which are not featured in street fighter and if we have to guile is still better than cammy
I actually quite like Cammy's style. We don't want to be a direct copy of her, though.
>>23629724We're only looking up a fighting style here. Any fighting style can be serious if the character using it is also serious. We're not re skinning an existing character, we're making our own.On a more personal note, i think it'll be hard to do many interesting things with Cammy's style, you can only launch yourself at something so many ways, and Cammy already does most of them in-game.
>>23629803>Vanessa, Seth, RamonI truly miss this team.
>>23629803I'd include Hong Kong supercop Hon-Fu from Fatal Fury, but he hasn't shown up in King of Fighters.
>>23629868I think it's more the fact that Cammy is exceedingly agile and has gymnastics and hits from crazy angles and less that she's a human projectile. If our new agent is inspired by Cammy, expect to wear something skintight to emphasize total freedom of movement.
>>23629874They're around. They didn't compete in KoFXIII because they were too busy quietly unraveling the plot of the game with Blue Mary. Not like the Ash Saga actually happened, so who cares?
>>23629945>hits from crazy anglesMostly I want to retain this specific bit. I don't care about replicating Cammy's entire style.
>>23629724Do we really care if fighter X or Y wasn't in the Special Forces?Clark fighting style was 100% pure pro wrestling, and no one called him on that
>>23630112Nah, more like catch-as-catch-can grappling than strict pro wrestling. If you want pro wrestling, pick Raiden/Big Bear.
>>23630126No, Clark is 100% pro wrestlingHe uses hurricaranas, argentine backbreakers, victory rolls, elbow drops, german suplex, enzuigiri and whatnotHe is by far one of the most versatile pro wrestlers ever made in a fighting game if we check all of his moves actually
>>23630167Don't forget the frankensteiner. Also, most of his HSDMs are borrowed from Kinnikuman (Ultimate Muscle). In particular, he's used Kinnikuman's Muscle Spark and Robin Mask's Robin Special.Hell, if you pay attention, the end of Zangief's Siberian Blizzard is a spinning Kinniku Driver.
>>23630223When i said Hurricarana i was actually talking about the Frankensteiner
>>23630250I'm pretty sure the Hurricanrana and Frankensteiner are two distinct moves.
>>23630254The Hurricanrana ends with a PinClark doesn't do the Hurricanrana, that was a my mistakeHe does used to use the Shining Wizard though, so another "pure" pro wrestling move to his arsenal
Unrelated to the thread, but I just wanted to share some ideas for a background history of this setting.In the early 60s, the ancient theory that postulated a human will-generated forcefield, known as "chi" or "ki" after the Eastern martial arts traditions, was procen true. European and American science, applying itself to obscure fighting styles, managed to harness the power of chi and develop it in forms that were much easier to master. "Instant dojos" rose up overnight, teaching average Joes powerful techniques that would have taken a lifetime to master. Needless to say, this development quickly spiraled out of control as ki-based warfare spread among criminal gangs and terror groups. The evil that lurks in the hearts of men, greed, ambition, vanity, pride and lust, took control and spilled over in powerful ki form. Organizations rose that took advantage of this power, known as the Satsui no Hadou or Dark Force, or did the power control them?It was at this time that the great fighting leagues were formed. Martial artists from various nations and backgrounds came together to test their mettle. It was an exciting time, when self-styled vigilantes took to the streets to stem the tide of ki criminals, and when empowered secret operatives fought shadow wars with the forces of evil. But slowly, the forces of apathy and commercialization won over the fighting spirit, and the once mighty World Warrior Tournament was reduced to a puppet show for sponsored gimmick "fighters" - a ki-powered Wrestlemania, as kids took to calling it.
Is the quest going to happen?
>>23630411The thread is only about character creation.
>>23630305I mean Clark used to have one of the most contrivied pinning combinations ever in his arsenalhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjIYdFdW_ks>First Move
>>23630363Satsui no Hadou (Surge of Murderous Intent) is an Ansatsuken thing. Ansatsuken is an inherently violent style, even after Gouken toned it down severely. If one is not careful, one can succumb to this dark desire. It's why Ansatsuken is only ever taught two at a time (Gouki/Gouken, Ryu/Ken).That aside, this is exceedingly silly.
>>23630442This is why you should practice Saikyo-Ryuu. All of the fireball throwing, dragon punchin' of Ansatsuken, without all of the Satsui no Hadou.
>>23627493Background>Raised on a military baseWe were never too sure what our parents did for a living besides something military related, though they always told crazy stories you weren't certain were real or not, like how they first met while hanging off a helicopter flying over the Florida Keys while chasing down a van with nuclear bomb on it. So basically our parents are Harry and Helen from True Lies.Pre-Recuitment Career>Air ForceMostly just to see if the military special forces really was as crazy awesome as our parents described it.Fighting BackgroundKrav Maga, the hardcore Israeli special forces kind.Fictional Secret Agent We Are Secretly Obsessed With>Michael WestenHas Bond's charisma, MacGyver's resourcefulness, and Snake's badassery. Plus a kooky but awesome team.
>>23630713Our last guy was already a sambo user and that would be pretty similar.
Rolled 59>>23630779I don't mind really, so far all of the fighting styles suggested have been goofy as hell. Wrestling, violent chiropractory, and Cammy's human rocketeering are pretty odd, and the last one manages to have the bonus of dudes in leotards. What's wrong with a little bit of practicality?Honestly I think that whoever it is should know basic, solid, boot-camp judo with some boxing. Why? Because, mid-game, when we're actually AT the secret agent place, we'll get the option to learn a crazy-awesome super fireball suplex highkick fighting style. And it. Will. Be. Awesome.
>>23630895Yeah, I'm more inclined to starting off with a "normal" fighting style and later augment it when we start mingling with the supers.
>BackgroundRaised on a military base, but as an orphan adopted by Our Loving father, the General. Competition with the true sons of our dad while growing up. Why did he adopt us? Where are mum and dad?>Pre-Recruitment CareerNot wanting to keep on with the competition of our siblings, we opted out of a military career, all the while remaining in a law-abiding/enforcing agency. Maybe we tried to join the FBI, or we tried another branch of the military.>Fighting BackgroundWhat about good 'ole fashioned Shotokan Karate (a la Ryu)? Or maybe (Evil) Aikido, like Geese and the monk girl from the original SFQ!>Fictional AgentThe Boss is quite cool and dreamy and she is the very best. But MacGyver is also cool.I second the request of a twitter account, oh great questgiver, for I live in the old country and can't always be present during threads unless alerted in due time. And i would love to be present, etc.
>>23631067Ryu doesn't practice Shotokan.
>>23631067I wouldn't mind a character using a Geese Style mix of Aikijutsu, Kobujutsu and Hakkyokuseiken
>>23631153An old translation of Street Fighter II said that he indeed did, and his and Ken's and Akuma's moves are loosely based on real moves taught by shotokan practicioners.
>>23631233The translation is defunct, though.
>>23631206>HakkyokuseikenThat's supposed to be a few-and-far-between energy control style. The only known users of it are Tung Fu Rue, Geese Howard, and the Bogard family (Terry, Andy, and their late adopted father Jeff).
>>23631242Yes, but the more recent translations state something along the lines of>assassination techniques based on, among other things, shotokan karate and judo
>>23631269Cheng Sinzan, too, but he uses the style for personal gain.
>>23631276Ryu/Ken's style of Ansatsuken (Assassin Fist) is a mix of multiple styles, particularly karate, judo, aikido, tae kwon do, and others.
>>23631269And? Ansetsuken is only known by like five people outside of the two who have made up their own style. I'm pretty sure if we wanted a dude that could use Hakkyokuseiken, OP would let us.
>>23631153>>23631233>>23631242>>23631276>>23631302Not to mention that Ryu is himself based on Mas Oyama, the creator shotokan karate, and that the first Street Fighter was a retelling of Mas Oyama's fight with the muay thai master Black Cobra in the finals of a great tournament.
>>23631269You forgot Rock, who can instinctively use it. Wolfgang, who has the second scroll. And Cheng who was expelled.
>>23631336If the KOF Another Day OVA is to be believed, Wolfgang Krauser is dead; he eventually killed himself because he couldn't cope with the fact that Terry beat him in FF2.
>>23631316>Mas Oyama, the creator shotokan karateWait, what the fuck am I saying?Mas Oyama created kyokushin karate. He served in the military together with the guy who founded shotokan, though.
>>23631411So is Geese. Didn't stop him from naming him, or Geese from coming back.Besides, always take OVAs with a grain of salt.
>>23631490But Geese didn't really come backNightmare Geese is just people having a dillusion, it's not really Geese coming back from the grave
>>23631621If he can punch me in the face in the games, that's good enough.
>>23631621>dillusionA Pickle Fantasy?
>>23631638Yeah, but it's not Geese punching you in the face, its you punching yourself
>>23630442>That aside, this is exceedingly silly.Well, then it fits the mood set in the previous threads perfectly. See: NO TICKET NO RIDE, time-traveller Honda and Moira the wannabe nun, for starters
>>23631757It's still based on real settings, though, and we'd like to preserve those.
>>23631797Why? It's already become its own thing with the ki storms and other additional bits of continuity that never featured in any of the source games. Besides, OP was always clear in the intention to not follow the canons of the games slavishly, and the very fact that the setting is a mashup of multiple fighting game continuities means the "real setting" argument has already gone out the window. I'm proposing developing a more coherent setting out of what we already have, and what I wrote doesn't contradict anything in the canon either.
>>23631834Ehh, I prefer leaving the history more grey for now.
On phone so responding to individual comments is a pain, but a few quick things - If we want to start at a realistic level and learn new techniques as we go, that could be fun. Lets us mix-and-match, gives some progression.Second, if we want Ansatsuken there are options. Agent leaned it from watchingtapes of old tournaments, from a manual that promised SECRET MOVES THE GOVERDOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW, something like that?This mobile version is a pain. More when I get to a keyboard.
>>23632691Isn't Ansatsuken literally an assassination style?That could work for shadowy government agents.
>>23632691Can we mix Ansatsuken and Hakkyokuseiken.
>>23632745In name only, for the most part. As previously mentioned, it's a fantastically violent style that can bring out one's malicious tendencies if they're not careful. Akuma's version -- the original version -- is more lethal and more fitting of the name "assassin's fist." Gouken's version is toned down and much less lethal, but still very dangerous.
>>23632776Personally i think that's a little too "mary sue"
>>23632869Personally, I think you're using "mary sue" wrong.
>>23632776I think that's a bit much. Besides, I don't think we could properly train styles like those while serving in the armed forces/Interpol at the same time.
>>23632909Yeah, we'd be getting to SNK Boss levels of silly anyways. I still think it'd be cool though.
>Not going for the REAL AssassinC'mon guysIt's like you aren't even trying?
>>23632958Gen uses a Chinese variant of Ansatsuken, if memory serves.
>>23632968No, he just uses regular Crane & Mantis with some pressure points shenanigansThere is nothing similar to both fighting styles besides the fact that they're perfect to killMan, image how ridiculously strong Young Gen is supposed to be
>>23632958Man, Gen is fucking awesome, the only reason i went with Yun instead of him in my recommendation is because i though divekicks or Genei Jin would be more fun to play around with during the quest.
>>23633012You can't divekick all your problems, bro.
>>23633012We should totally form a Chinese Spy Faction call it Oniwabanshu and make every single member into a master of some crazy Kung Fu style like Crab Kung Fu and whatnot

>>23633037Can we be trained by these guys?Tell me we're a Chinese agent who was trained by these guys.
>>23633096This is amazing. Can we be this? This plus MacGuyver plus Chinese kung fu council?
>>23633264>>23633290Style inspirations for our character: Marshall Law, Lei Wulong, and Fei Long.
>>23633371Also the idea of a chinese agent trained by a secret patriotic kung fu council who has MacGuyver of all people as her personal hero is amazing.
>>23633396Our hero would've learned to look beyond the interests of the People's Republic if she's joining a UN taskforce.
>>23633433That is, assuming we're running with the idea of being from a PRC taskforce. The other ideas brought up were US military and Interpol.
>>23633433Well, ancient kung fu masters tend to be more loyal to China than to the whole Communism bit.Communism just happens to be currently ruling their glorious nation.
>>23633443We could have a party of the Chinese guy, an American and a European.
>>23633371No, we should stick to the Chinese martial artists like gen for fighter inspiration. I'm still really attached to my highlander-style bruce lee fighting school though (including Lei Wulong, Fei Long, Both Laws, and Jann Lee) who pass the title of 'Bruce Lee' to their strongest member so he can make movies to fund the school.
>>23633485We have a friendly rivalry with them and/or look to their fighting school for new recruits.They do wonders for our image.
>>23633485I'm partial to >>23627819 where our Interpol agent has a chance encounter with a retired Chun-Li and fangirls out.
still, we should remember that as a "starting" agent we shouldn't aim for a power level "up there". We should have someone to look to, having a gal who can fight like Lee while jury rigging an airplane with a stick and a dead possum like Mac isn't fun. captcha: especially intrma. that too, captcha, that too.
>>23633538is this at the same time of SFQ? what if she fangirls over boss honda or something? he's around travelling time and being the inspiration for a german time period tv drama, isn't he?
>>23633566Boss Honda lost in the World Warrior qualifiers against Anon, even though for a while, he was the east coast champ. He's not that big.Chun-Li, by comparison, is a supernova. To think she's only running a Chinese orphanage nowadays.
>>23633538There's nothing stopping crabwalker kung fu agent from having a fangirl moment over Chun Li. Chun Li's pretty great and is a credit to our glorious nation.IF ONLY SHE KNEW MORE ANCIENT KUNG FU SECRETS
Fuck the hatersJapanese Crab Technique is where it atWhen did we decided our guy would be a she? Just curious
>>23633634Oh man, this first Kata thing is absolutely badass
>>23633634I think it was always a she when the idea for Delta Red Quest was put forward.
>>23633634>When did we decided our guy would be a she?When the idea for this quest was first proposed.
Had a long post, phone deleted it. Goddamn.The Bruce Lee Highlander conspiracy is totally a thing. JKD our basart may be logical. Adapting and learning what's best for you is its real core, so it means The Agent can pick up new techniques easily as she progresses.
>>23633677obligatory Yellow Tracksuit please
>>23633677Jeet Kune Do is a philosophy more than a style, but it's not a bad idea to maintain. We still have to start somewhere.
>>23633037I just wanted these guys to be our bosses.That might actually explain why we've got the Style of No Style, though, if all of our bosses are proponents of ancient, codified martial arts.Favouring one over another would probably offend at least one of them.
>>23633689>>23633717I assume the yellow tracksuit is reserved for the strongest member of the Bruce Lee dojo, and we're not those guys.If we see someone coming toward us wearing the yellow tracksuit we know they're a friend, though.Or possibly a rival.
>>23633727Yes, this is a good oneMaybe after training they send you to missions to get what you learned and improve their style and whatnot
>>23633727They're always arguing about which style is the best. Working in shaolin monasteries, disguised as menial laborers and servants while dressed-up actors and acrobats pretend to be monks and entertain tourists with "martial arts" tricks.
>>23633746>"impyoving" thousand-year-old martial artsThat's a pretty tall order, bro.
>>23633727I like that idea. It gives us room for advancement as well as some hilarity.>>23633748"Obviously my style is the best. (Name) used my 'Dragon Slaying Kick' in order to break the door and escape the burning building.""I respectfully disagree, my style is superior, he could not have even entered the building through the roof without my 'Esteem Heaven Vaulting Technique'.""You're both wrong, my style is the greatest one."All while our character just facepalms and pours another drink for himself.
>>23633769>improvingStill a tall order when I spell it correctly.
>>23633769Maybe that anon meant "improve OUR style". It'll be a nice way for the old men to test which style is the better one: which techniques will Agent incorporate? What will she end up relying on? Which style is the most useful in real-world conditions?
>>23633775This needs to happen.I will brook no dissent.
>>23633780No matter how tall it may be that's how Martial Arts evolveThat's what Great Brother Lee taught us
>>23633677Hey SFM when the quest will happen?
>>23633634More of the CrabwalkerPart of me wishes SFM would give a quick read on Wuxia terms and whatnot to make the whole chinese experience more "real".The other part have no problem with the ultra westernized chinese stereotypes that makes the whole thing seem so fun
>>23634085Street Fighter is not exactly wuxia, so it doesn't need to be terribly accurate.Half the characters are walking stereotypes of some form or another.
I can get behind the Chinese Kung Fu angle for fighting style. Theres a lot of interesting stuff there.Plus if we want to go crazy-ki-blast-spam at some point I'd hope we could get some Wuxia style chi stuff.
>>23634103No, i get it, but yeah China is basically where Martial Arts were born(actually India, but you get my drift), so they must have at least some unique terms that they use like Jianghu for the "secret martial art world", Qinggong for the "light foot technique" that they use to go flying around and whatnot
>>23634127It would be nice to add some Chinese wuxia-style chi nonsense in to counter the generic energy blasts that the Japanese characters are throwing around.Dhalsim shoots fire if I remember correctly, which, sure, okay, that works.Just as long as we're not going full Legends of the Wulin here.
Voting for the name Black Lotus, it's /tg/ and agenty.
>>23634204Dhalsim's fire breath is a gift from Agni, the Hindu god of fire. It was originally from eating way too much spicy curry, but it was retconned a while later after Capcom decided they didn't want to be THAT racist.
>>23634246Didn't the actual Indian people think it was hilarious, though?
>>23634246Maybe it's a special curry recipe that was handed down from Agni himself, though.
>>23634204Isn't Dhalsim actually not shooting fire but creating an illusion that makes the opponent thinks that he is in fire damaging him mentally but not physically?
>>23634262and this makes more sense than breathing fire... how?
>>23634278It's Yoga he doesn't have to explain shit
>>23634204Yeah. And if im not completely misinterpreting a bunch of media, Chi as opposed to ki has a lot more room for the non visible, fuck-you-up-internally kind of energy attacks too, I think? Also, for strengthening the user and whatnot? Just going off what i can remember from various things ive read and seen various places.
>>23634301Chi and ki are pretty much the exact same thing. It's just a different name, that's all.
>>23634301and making yourself really light
>>23634204Just curious, do you dislike Wulin? or is just because is too Wuxia for SFQ?>>23634224My vote goes for Void Walker to fit with the no styleIf we're going to the Bruce Lee route then let's just call us Jenny Lee or something like that
>>23634480>Void WalkerOr how about Void Dragon?
>>23634486I was going with it, but for some reason i was trying to get away from the Dragon Theme
>>23634480No, it's just really crunchy, while I like the much lighter and quicker system we've had going for these quests.Also I may be planning to run a Wulin quest myself sometime down the line thanks to SFQ
>>23634501Let's not be too stereotypical about this whole mess.
>>23634510I thought about going with "Empy Cup" to fit with the whole "Be like water" speech Lee gaveBut i could only think on the dirty jokes
>mfw this responseGoing to start reading the posts I missed, but I just wanted to clear up a few points I caught real fast: Going with the UN or Interpol option because I wanted to make the new character also from Metro City and because I'm not familiar with the idioms and pop culture references a Chinese agent would have. The idea of a conspiracy of Five Deadly Venom-style wuxia masters running Chinese intelligence is good, though, they're in the setting now. Friendly allies sometimes, rivals some others, the way foreign agencies should be in a proper spy setting.Black Lotus as our agent's codename is totally happening. Keeps up the theme of the world's badass martial artists all being secret fa/tg/uys at heart.The protagonist of this one is a woman because her initial inspirations were Cammy and C. Viper, also the last two were dudes and sometimes I just decide things based on whim.The current feeling seems to be the philosophy of JKD to Mega Man moves mixed with a foundation in a more traditional art, am I reading that right? Like I said, about to go through and read the hundred and sixty or so posts that have occurred since I went to dinner, someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
>>23634480I like the idea of the various member of this organization, using names like X Lee.Like MI6 uses the Zero agents China would use the Lee agents
>>23634557>Going with the UN or Interpol option because I wanted to make the new character also from Metro City and because I'm not familiar with the idioms and pop culture references a Chinese agent would have.Aww.I'm not entirely sure why "making shit up" isn't an option, but I guess.
>>23634557JKD and stealing other people's moves is more a recent idea that cropped up.
>>23634557Killer Instinct's de facto female is codenamed "Black Orchid."
Name: Jenny LeeCode Name: Void DragonPart of a the 5 Dragons, a Chinese unit that supposedly traces its lineage to the age of the Three Kingdoms. Jenny knows there are 4 other agents codenamed after the Chinese elements besides her, but she has never met any of them.Background: Raised in a shaolin temple as the daughter of one of its masters. Inducted into the Bruce Lee conspiracy at an early age.Pre-recruitment career: Served in the Interpol as part of an exchange program established after Chun-Li's success. Partly a propaganda effort to improve China's image abroad, Jenny was also involved in actual police work, busting international crime rings and triads.Fighting Background: Jeet Kune DoAgent Inspiration: McGuyver, referencing the previous anons' suggestions.
>>23634599the JKD part was partially in order to maintain the dynamic from here: >>23633727 >>23633748 >>23633775which I would be sad to see go.
>>23634619The problem would be that Void is not a chinese element, but a Japanese oneThe Chinese elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal & Water
>>23634507>Also I may be planning to run a Wulin quest myself sometime down the line thanks to SFQI approve this
>>23634638I know, but "Metal Dragon" doesn't ring as well. It sounds like the stage name of some Norwegian rocker.In any case, >>23634557 seems to indicate that the Agent won't be Chinese anyway so my suggestion can be safely ignored. Or relegated to sidekick status.
>>23634676I suppose it's possible he'll change his mind after he finishes reading through the thread. We seemed to hit a near-consensus on the Chinese Agent thing.Or maybe not, who knows.
>>23634676Water Dragon. Wasn't Bruce Lee's whole philosophy "Be like water"?That would be our name as far as our bosses/masters are concerned, the one they assigned us, and Black Lotus as the more "public" name/our self-assigned name because we're kind of a huge nerd?
>>23634685Not really, no.I, for one, am against it.
>>23634685who says they couldn't have grown up in metro city, but received a healthy dose of their UN training from some ancient kung fu china-men?
>>23634699Black Lotus could be a hacker/handler type of person that gives us missions.
>>23634706Because the majority of their fighting style should already be set before joining the UN.
>>23634705What do you prefer anon?
>>23634720The vast majority of consensus is that our heroine lived on a military base(s) and was an army brat.
>>23634725US or British/Commonwealth background, with a pre-recruitment career either being the Air Force (of the US or the Commonwealth) or Interpol.>>23634741Right, and that's where she would have picked up her fighting style before being recruited into the UN equivalent of Delta Red.
>>23634787>>23634741That was the consensus in the beginning of the thread. Discussion subsequently turned to the Chinese agent.There's really only one SFQ-appropriate way to settle this debate. Have both these characters fight each other. Whichever one wins gets to be the protagonist. The other one can still be a POV character occasionally. Like Boss Honda and Anon. How 'bout it, guys?
>>23634741Ok, so what if the heroine grew up on an army base near metro city, but the family was transferred to china in her teens. Obviously upset with the situation, she enters a rebellious teenager phase, but instead of finding a Mr Miyagi to snap her out of it, she finds some kind of kung fu china mentor. She learns the basics of the style, but still has lots of room for improvement and improvisation since her family's assignment in china ends before she can complete the training.
>>23634831It only turned to the Chinese agent because that's all you talked about.>>23634852That's even worse.
>>23634831We do do alternating protagonists a fair bit.>>23634852So we're a white kid mastering Chinese kung fu from ancient Chinese masters? Naaah.
>>23634881We did the alternating protagonist because Anon botched a combat roll so badly he lost protagonist status for a few minutes.
>>23634880Don't do that "everyone with a different opinion than myself is the same person" thing. It's unbecoming of /tg/.
>>23634880>It only turned to the Chinese agent because that's all you talked about.C'mon mate, it wasn't just one person
>>23634897If that was all one person then they're really fucking dedicated.
>>23634880>Everyone agreeing on and expanding on the same ideaThat's what a consensus is.
>>23634962Not everyone, evidenced by me, a few other anons, and SFM.
>>23634962It's not a consensus until we actually vote on it. I didn't participate in your creation of a Chinese Agent because that's not what I wanted, and because we were only creating possible characters and not actually voting on them yet. Sure there's more than one anon who wants the Chinese Agent, but that doesn't mean that there aren't any anons who want something else, or what we originally came up with.
>>23630713Can we go back to some of these ideas? I mean, I know ancient Chinese whatever is cool and all, but after >>23634557I think that we can get a lot of mileage out of looking at this sort of agent again. Basically, a little bit less ancient kung-fu-is-what-they-do, and a little more secret agent. Badass, over-the-top special agent, but Mission Impossible antics > ancient chinese secret. Personal preference.f
>>23635321In that case, you could go back to >>23627718 and >>23627819.
>>23634831Maybe The Agent would be akin to this quest's Anon, the Chinese agent would be more akin to this quest's Ellie or Boss Honda? It does seem like there's sort of a split into two camps for potential protagonists.
>>23635321Sure, but I'd like to move the slider more towards MacGuyver than Westen. Maybe throw in a bit of Jack O'Neill snarkiness.I'd still like a Fighting Style more based on Cammy, even if we incorporate a lot of JKD for flexibility.
>>23635358That could work. We'd have to fluff The Agent out more, though.And I need to get going to sleep, so waking up tomorrow with a brand new protagonist I know nothing about is going to be strange.Can they at least both still have an inordinate admiration for MacGuyver?
>>23635378That's fine. The emphasis is on agility and piercing strikes, with room for variabiliy.
>>23635358I'm all for it.To be fair, i'm more of a Chinese Gal guy because i personally find Cammy to be a really dull character gameplay wise and personality wise. And I understand you originally wanted to keep kinda faraway from canon characters and all.But hey, if people want the Cammy Gal, i'm all for it. I just want to keep the canon character as far away from the Quest characters as far as possible. If it is to mention Cammy make her some sort of really hard to reach idol and make her somewhat like Eagle from the original quest, where you just see a small glimpse of him
>>23635383I figure most of the fluffing out will happen during the quest, based around the decisions players make. If people gravitate towards curt, businesslike interactions, that'll be it, if she keeps up Anon's pattern of being nice but slightly crazy that'll be it, et cetera.
>>23635430Also, why not:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqUfa6B9cY0Here's Geese demonstrating his impressive singing capabilities
>>23635430Yeah, Anon wasn't exactly an Eagle clone, apart from the gimmick.
>>23635383The Agent could have been raised on Air Force bases, traveling around the world as her parents were deployed.Growing up on bases led to learning how to jury-rig solutions to engineering problems, her Swiss Army Knife both getting her into and out of trouble.Pre-Recruitment had her with a brief tour of duty in the Air Force, but she didn't go career; instead she went into Interpol, and that's where she was recruited into this UN Taskforce.Fighting Style is based on Cammy with a healthy dose of Jeet Kune Do, resulting in very fast and agile movement with piercing strikes from different angles.The being on Air Force bases explains her obsession with MacGuyver, as that's what was inevitably in the base libraries. He's inventive, clever, able to get out of any situation with the tools at his disposal, and he's a Good Guy.And we could incorporate her fangirling out about meeting Chun-Li once when helping out in China.
>>23635544This works great.
>>23635378>>23635383>>23635392 Working off of these ideas, time for a new template!Background: >Raised on a Military Base. My vote is for a U.S. Marine Base, and not knowing where Metro City is supposed to be I'll state two of them - California's MCB Pendleton or Virginia's MCB Quantico. Yes, I watch NCIS. This'll give choice of West or East coast, and some subtle stylings of the character.Pre-Recruitment>Two recurring ones I see are Interpol and Air Force. I can see Interpol being a stronger place to come from, but what the hell did we do to get upgraded from Air Force to International Secret Agent? it's gotta be awesome, like jumping on a jet and punching it to death.Fighting Background>JKD is the consensus to now and that's awesome, but what about Cammy's style? Word has it being lots of jumping kicks from odd angles, incredible agility, and piercing strikes, which actually works with JKD well.So, a JKD style that mixes in sudden, flying, insanely powerful direct attacks. Badass.>The 'Learning New Moves" should be a thing, maybe that's how we learned the flying kicks? Being kicked in the head a few times by Cammy or Proto-Cammy? Bam, instant backstory.Fictional Agent Secretly Obsessed With>Macguyver. Accept no substitutes. Add in some frugality, O'Neal's been suggested but I'd like to toss in the new James Bond's stoic starkness into the ring.
>>23635544our Agent and Chinese Agent bond over a mutual love of MacGuyver and Jeet Kune Do (which for Chinese Agent is more of a mishmash of ancient chinese martial arts using whatever works best at the time)?
>>23635618Metro is on the east coast, assumed to be a stand-in of sorts for NYC.
>>23635618O'Neill and new Bond are both very snarky.O'Neill just refuses to look like he's taking shit seriously (even when he is) and plays dumb a lot of the time.
>>23635650That and O'Neill's not a spy. He's an Air Force man played by the same guy who played MacGuyver, so he works for the military background aspect as opposed to the superspy aspect.
>>23635683>so he works for the military background aspect as opposed to the superspy aspect.That's right. Remember that the Agent just got recruited into being a superspy; before she was an Air Force soldier and then Interpol supercop.
>>23635544>>23635618If I don't hear any objections, looks like this template is our heroine. The Chinese agent rooted slightly more in wuxia stories than in modern 2D fighters probably won't appear for a bit, but I like her concept. And keeping her as a foreign rival gives me a bit of time to learn more about traditional martial arts for her to use. I'm thinking xingyi or bajiquan, something aggressive? A more defense/mobility oriented art like bagua might make sense, especially as a foil to our Agent - fluid, fast, hard to hit with powerful direct strikes like CANNON DRILL and the like.>>23635641Metro City was vaguely Chicago in the first quest and vaguely New York in Streets of Fighting. Kind of 'whatever major urban metropolis it needs to be' if I'm being honest.Semi-related, I see Southtown as kind of this setting's Detroit. A city that caught a lot of bad breaks and is kind of rough, but has a lot of hometown pride.
>>23635914Will the Bruce Lee conspiracy happen?If the Bruce Lee conspiracy is canon, then Chinese Agent must too use JKD, is just a natural thing to do.
>>23635914I'm thinking xingyi or bajiquan, something aggressive? A more defense/mobility oriented art like bagua might make sense, especially as a foil to our Agent - fluid, fast, hard to hit with powerful direct strikes like CANNON DRILL and the like.Well, the idea with her is she's trained by several different masters of several different "wuxia" versions of kung fu (tiger, crane, mantis, crab...), all insisting their style is the single best style, while she's got a more flexible JKD based one that incorporates all of them at once to hopefully not offend any of them by favouring one of them over the others. Because, y'know, they're old and powerful and scary.So, lots and lots of different variants on "kung fu", all at once.
>>23635959Fucked up the greentext.
>>23635618So, advancing the apparent consensus.Background:>Raised on a Military Base. >>23635544this guy has a nice intro, so we'll use his: Moving from Air Force Base to Base, getting into bits of trouble fixed by the occasional swiss-army jury rig. Sweet.Pre-Recruitment>Joined the Air Force looks popular, haven't had a real dissenting opinion yet. I still think that our hero should have a particularily awesome reason for being recruited into the Super Special World Warrior Investigation Core, and I'm totally open to opinions. Falcon Punch / Spiky Heel to a cocpit, anons?Figting Background>I think we've got this one figured out.Secret Agent Inspiration>MacGuyver with some snark. Maybe some smarm as well. Preferably without the drinking problem, but for some reason I get the feeling we OD on pixie sticks and lollipops. That would make me happy. Of course, hopefully something in these descriptions will raise some Anon-based hell. LET LOOSE THE DOGS OF /TG/
>>23635914>>23635959Also we need to see her employ that ridiculous crabwalk escape technique at least once.
>>23635968aww hell, OP came and made a decision while I was typing. Now I feel all redundant.
>>23635959In other words, she's Lei Wulong.
>>23635982Basically yeahBut with more crabwalk
>>23635982I'm not familiar enough with Tekken to have noticed, but it looks that way.We can throw in other styles like xingyi and bajiquan as the quest progresses sand she expands her repertoire more to make her less Lei Wulong.
>>23635914I forgot about Guile.Maybe a quick throwaway like "Oh yeah, Major Guile. I had a few workshops with him; decent guy. Got no idea how much hair gel he uses, though."
>>23635914If you're having her know bajiquan she should also know piguazhang as those two martial arts work extremely well together. Just saying.If we're going with the multiple competing masters thing giving her a solid base foundation in something and having her integrate other stuff into it.Also at some point I want to see someone use Taijiquan as underneath the soft flowing movements and people seeing it as just exercise lies an extremely brutal, efficient, and dangerous martial art.
>>23636006Guile was Army, we're apparently Air Force. So, for massive points we should have a rivalry between disciplines. It'll be hilarious, c'mon.
>>23636017Oh yeah. Tai Chi as a combat art is fuckin' MEAN. It's about single powerful strikes, all with deliberate windups. I think the go-to example for combat Tai Chi is Lei Fang from Dead or Alive.
>>23636035Guile is Air Force. Charlie, his superior and the guy who taught him the Sonic Boom and Somersault Kick, was also Air Force.Guile competed in the World Warrior tournament, though.
>>23635914Why is guile using a cigarette to play on the DS?
>>23636017They're supposed to integrated in theory, right? There's that story about a bajiquan master failing to hit the baguazhang master in a match and then declaring that integrating the two styles will make you invincible? I only really know a smattering of baguazhang. Going with animal styles might be more cinematic, though, and we can slip in the Five Deadly Venoms. Toad style is invincible!>>23636006>the reason he only has two special moves is all of his remaining ki holds his hair up
>>23636035>for massive points we should have a rivalry between disciplinesOh yeah, that could work. >>23636046Wasn't he originally US Army in SFII?
>>23635939I think it is, but I don't think she herself is from the Bruce Lee dojo, being trained by the five rival masters or whatever instead.IIRC Chinese Intelligence does recruit from there, though, so she probably knows the current Bruce Lee.
>>23636078If we go by animals, i want to see new Animals fighting styles, like the CrabYou can have something like Sloth Kung Fu where you fight mostly lying down or the Shark Kung Fu and whatnot
>>23636120Yes. She's all about adaptability, so making up brand new animal kung fu styles is genius.Bonus points if we actually see her watching and imitating a shark or a hornet or a sloth something at some point as she develops new techniques.
>>23636082I always assumed Air Force. He's hanging out on a runway next to a jet, and everyone else's uniforms are Air Force.>>23635939If there is a conspiracy (there totally is) it will probably be its own weird sidequest. We'll figure it out as it goes.>>23636120When she fights I'll probably call for an animal and a d100 roll, high roll determines the new animal style kung fu she busts out.
>>23636039It really is. "Now this is the gentle circular movement that breaks their arm, and then you just step in, shift your weight, and collapse the trachea.">>23636078Yeah, they were taught together, at least according to legend, they split apart, I don't know the exact story behind that, then Li Shuwen put them back together in the late 1800s and won at martial arts.The quote about their complementary natures is "When pigua is added to baji, gods and demons will all be terrified. When baji is added to pigua, heroes will sigh knowing they are no match against it."Bajiquan has great short range capabilities, lots of elbow strikes, as well as knee strikes and body checks, it focuses on closing the distances, opening up their guard, and hitting them.Piguaquan has a lot of rotational arm movement, palm techniques, and it covers Baji's short range focus quite well.
>>23636145>and won at martial arts.I actually laughed out loud at that turn of phrase. That's really the best way to put it.Is piguaquan a separate art or just a more correct way of translating baguazhang?
>>23636167When you can say "I don't know what it's like to hit a man twice" you've won at martial arts.Piguaquan, also known as 'chop hanging fist', is separate from Baguazhang, which I don't know much about aside from the focus on circle-walking.
Well, eleven hours later and we seem to have more or less completely hashed out our first order of business according to the OP.I wonder what else we were expected to get done during this thread?
>>23636391Nothing. That was the purpose of this.Though we can nerd out about random stuff now.
>>23636409Or I can go to bed like I said I was going to do two hours ago.
>>23636409Like Ingrid back up in >>23628294 and >>23628404.Ffffffffffffuck Ingrid.
>>23636418Well sure, if you're feeling boring.>>23636421I don't really know Street Fighter that well, and I just looked her up.Fuck her. She sucks. She reads like a 13 year old girl's fanfic insert.
>>23636462School is a bitch, man.
