Persona Quest, True Reincarnation Mode>Thread Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Persona%20Quest%20Golden>Twitter: https://twitter.com/P4GoldenOP>Character Sheet: http://pastebin.com/txQXezA5>Rolling rulesWhen I call for a roll, I'll select the highest of the first three rolls made for that. Natural 1's and natural 20's within the first three rolls count as automatic failures or successes, and those within the first five override the first three roll rule. >Previously..."That sounds like her, alright." Your uncle replies, a small grin forming on his face. "Anyway, if you want to eat something, feel free to do so. I've set up a room for you upstairs, too, if you just want to get to sleep. Just be quiet about it, since Nanako fell asleep early. ""The transfer was already dealt with for school, too, so you'll need to head out in the morning. I'll give you directions before either of us leaves,""Thanks." You return, looking around the house as you walk further in."Welcome to your home for the next year." Dojima says, patting you on your shoulder. =========After grabbing a bite to eat, you have some time before you strictly need to get to sleep...>Talk to Dojima
>>27244567You decided to talk to your uncle a bit. "Hm? What is it, Yu?" He asks, looking up from the newspaper he was reading as you approach the kitchen table where he's sitting. "Can't sleep?""That, and I wanted to see about getting to know you better." You reply, shrugging as you pull out the chair across from him and take a seat. "I'm going to be living with you for a year, after all.""Hah. Well, there'll be plenty of time for that later on." Dojima replies, chuckling. "Anyway, you looked like you had something specific on your mind. What is it?"You pause, wondering how to phrase this..."Your partner mentioned a missing person case, but not much more. I was kinda curious about that, and a bit worried too." You say, shrugging. "Ah, that. Yeah, the announcer woman involved in that whole Namatame scandal went missing a couple of days ago." The man pauses, probably figuring out his own wording to keep from saying things he shouldn't. "Normally, we'd write that off as her trying to get out of the public eye for some time, but since she had requested some police presence to discourage the worst of the media... Well, we suspect foul play.""Wouldn't there have been an officer there with her, then?" You ask."There WOULD have, if there hadn't been the car wreck nearby. Since there hadn't been much going on there, the officer assigned wound up being called in to help with that mess, leaving her alone. I guess that's when whatever it was happened..." He trails off, looking into his drink somberly. "Well, no point dwelling on it. It'd be best if you get to bed. You had a long trip here, and have school in the morning."You nod, getting up. "Well then, good night." You say, heading upstairs quietly, preparing to unpack what you can...=======That took longer than expected, you think, as you look at the clock nearing midnight and your stored belongings. But you still aren't tired...(1/2)
>>27244567>Do you know a guy called Adachi?
(2/2)Dojima put an old TV in here... Maybe you could watch something to bore yourself?>Watch TV for a bit, then go to bed>Go straight to bed>Write in>As an aside, family is over, so updates may be a little slow right now. Give it an hour or two, and it'll be up to speed.
>>27244595>Straight to bed
>>27244595Gah, that post went poorly. I am actually dealing with family being over, so... Expect a slightly longer delay than normal.
Rolled 16 + 3>>27244595>Watch TV for a bit, then go to bedwe watch late-night anime
>>27244585That's been covered. ...No one else is gonna chime in?
>>27245107Go to bed
TV, then bed, it is. >Writing
>Watch TVYou sit down on the small couch in the room, turning on the TV as you do so. Flipping through the channels, you pass several that seem uninteresting- a news report, some special on Japanese mythology, and some new harem anime among them. Eventually, you come to something that catches your eye...A rerun of an old Pheonix Ranger Featherman episode, of who knows which season.The episode is nearing the end, where the heroes have summoned their robot to do battle with the enlarged monster of the week. As expected, the battle is going poorly until the robot draws its sword, slashing through the monster with one hit and looking away as its fallen foe explodes. The show drifts back to the moral of the episode, and the ending theme plays shortly after. As the clock ticks to midnight, though... The TV shuts off, and static fills the screen, before it slowly resolves to a blurry view.A woman, running for her life as a number of shadowy monsters with white masks chase her. The area around her seems similar to the shopping district that you were in earlier, though twisted horribly... The chase continues, until the woman trips, and the monsters begin to descend...Suddenly, the screen goes blank, leaving the room quiet. >Write In

Rolled 15 + 3>>27245788We jump in?
>>27245922Hey OP, what kind of meta knowledge are we allowed to use?
>>27245877It was like that in the anime, too.>>27245788Did we get a good look at the woman? Either way, approach the TV cautiously, examine it. That should not be happening.

Rolled 4 + 3>>27246033Not without strong narcotics is shouldn't!.....Yu doesn't take drugs does he considering his recent trips
>>27245788try to record it?? is there a vcr or dvd recorder?
>>27246061>Yu doesn't take drugs does he considering his recent tripsI'd hope not- it'd be a bad idea going to live with your policeman uncle when you're tripping balls.
>>27245996Vague sense of having done something before are acceptable, but any outright doing things based on stuffthe character shouldn't know will be ignored. For example, focusing attacks on something you know will be stronger, despite looking weaker? That's fine. Vague sense of foreboding, ect.Not saving Yukiko because that means Namatame will stop? That's getting ignored. Also, are you the /m/ Moose?>>27246033Vaguely. >>27246061He does not.
>>27246075There's a DVD recorder.
>>27246137No, just an anon who was there for the first thread. took a name because i got interested enough in a few quests and wanted to stand out a bit.Also, let's give our TV a smack, must be picking up some wierd signals from some neighbor or something. Probably just a wierd coincidence that it turned on by itself.
Rolled 13 + 3>>27246137WHat does the girl look like?
>>27246205except that the TV turned off- then did that. That's far creepier.
>character roles are getting switched>inb4 Ai and/or Kou party membersI'm kinda hyped
>>27246247probably just someone playing around with a universal remote nearby. I'm sure it's fine to give it a smack.
>Checking on the TV, maybe giving it a smack, then?
>>27246276Oh lord when we get to school were going to make a brick house in our pants

>Check on the TV...That can't be normal.You rush over to the TV, taking a careful look at it. Nothing's out of place with the wiring or the case, but as you brush your hand over the screen, it...Ripples? Touching it, you feel the cool surface give way, parting like fog around your arm... ! Something's grabbed onto your hand, and is pulling you in!>Resist!>Let it pull you in so you can beat the crap out of it!

>>27246762Gee thanks Cosgrove thats some artistic talent you got there
>>27246788Hey now that one doesnt count, it wasnt linked to the post where you asked to roll, plus it has an un needed modifyer
Rolled 19>>27246792I meant to roll
>>27246807True, but it's still a sign. Like this. >>27246811
>>27246829oh thank goodness
Rolled 7 + 3>>27246829but aren't 1s automatic fails? no matter how high we roll?
>>272468742 1's are MUCH worse than a single 1
>>2724687420's cancel them out.And what he said. >>27246884
Rolled 20>>27246788>>27246777>>27246794I apologize........for NOTHING!
>>27246902Well That doesnt count alsoso thanks guyill be taking those hands now
>>27246902Shit right you aren'tThat evens it out?
>>27246902remember to respond to the Op when you roll, otherwise it doesn't count man
Rolled 6>>27246930we still have one more 1
The "1d20+3"s don't count. They're the wrong modifier, which will be ignored.One roll per trip, though.
>>27246976Its even more hilarious because this is the ruleset that Cosgrove uses in all his quests
>>27246811does this one count? I think it should
>>27247054Nope its a strict ruleset
> 1> 20JESUS COSGROVE WHAT THE FUCK?
>>27247074but it was linked to one linked to OP, no? whatever how does one roll again? I forget.
>>27247100prevents anons and namefags from rolling twice
>>27247054>>27247074It does, actually, since it was a correction to a mis-roll. Links to both the request for a roll and the one to be corrected are preferred, though.
>>27247155so we've already got an 18 via>>27246748and a 19 via>>27246811did we decide on whether we're pulling it out or simply olding our ground? I say pull it out and fuck it up
>>27247206Cosgrove rolled a 1 friend
>>27247206Nope. You have a 1. First three, and all that.
>>27247225>>27247240but he didn't link it to the Op properly so it doesn't count. By that logic, he also rolled a 20, which cancle each other out.goodness i'm confusedalso how do i roll, no one answered me.
>>27247240So his 20 doesn't count because it wasn't in the first three? Okay I understand the rules now.
>>27247261He rolled in response to the post that asked to roll
>>27247261Cosgrove did connect his 1 to the correct post, where I asked for a roll.To roll, just put dice+[Roll requested] in the e-mail field. For this, mostly dice+1d20
>>27247080>>27247105Image related>>27247261in the email field have this- dice+120 (plus whatever modifiers the op wants, but the important thing is having no spaces.)
>Pull it out/let it pull you inYou latch onto the thing pulling on you- time to smack the crap out of i->1...You suddenly regret that decision as it pulls you through the screen in a highly uncomfortable manner, sending you tumbling through a void...And landing on your ass, in the middle of a white room. You can barely see the point where the floor stops and the walls begin, but that isn't the biggest problem.What the biggest problem is is the person standing in here, a grinning teenage boy... Who is almost a carbon-copy of -you-. "Why hello there, Yu Narukami." He says in your voice, his yellow eyes taking a maniacal look. "How are YOU doing today? Because I'm feeling FANTASTIC.">...Who are you?> Write in
>>27247332I still love you even though you hurt me.
>>27247322"Natural 1's and natural 20's within the first three rolls count as automatic failures or successes, and those within the first five override the first three roll rule. "cosgrove's 20 was the fifth roll. does it not count at all?
>>27247369nevermind, was the sixth. i miscounted. i just really dislike nat fails
>>27247369One roll per person is the generally accepted rule for quests. However, since most people don't use trips, they're on the honor system.Cosgrove, however...
>>27247356did you just pull me into the T.V.? what the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck man, not cool bro.inb4 YOU'RE NOT MEEEEEEEE

>>27247356>Who are you?I must say, I'm a bit surprised to see myself with, y'know, creepy golden eyes.
>>27247356> Abandoned and neglected by my parents, thanks for asking.Because I have given thought to what Yu' s shadow would be like and at this current point in time I figured that these would be his main 'issues'.

>>27247694Nothing wrong with some bisexuality, just means you get more opportunities.
>Who are you?"Feeling abandoned and neglected by my parents, thanks." You reply offhandedly. "But the real thing I've got to ask is, who IS this handsome devil in front of me?" "I'm Yu." Your yellow-eyed clone replies, his grin widening more. "And you? You aren't me.""What." "Oh, you know. I'm all that Yu Narukami doesn't want to accept about himself. His loneliness, his constant reinventing himself to suit those around him..." The other you says, yes, still grinning. "Call me a Shadow.""...Alright... Now, where AM I? Why did you pull me in?" You ask, looking around. "You aren't going to try and kill me or something, are you?""Where we are is the world of the unconscious. I pulled you in because I thought you were me, and that I could kill Yu." The Shadow says, seemingly taking delight in his crypticness. "But you? You aren't the guy I was looking for.">Write in
>>27247782Okay youre me who wants to kill me but im not the me youre looking forMakes perfect sense.So whats there to do around here?
>>27247782"What are you talking about? I am Yu Narukami?"
>>27247782"Then who am I?"
>>27247782> So let me get this straight, you are me and I'm you but I am not the US you were looking for? Or was that a taunt about the reinventing thing?
>>27247782Who am I?I'm Jon Valjeun
>>27247992Who am I?IM BATMAN
>>27247770> Making me feel included by sharing the OTP
Rolled 9>>27247770ShrugsI prefer NaotoxYu personally or any of the investigation team (except for Rise)
>Let me get this straight..."So, you're Yu, and I'm Yu, but I'm not the Yu you were looking for?" You ask, taking a moment to go over the phrasing in your head. "Exactly, buddy." The Shadow replies, giving you a thumbs up."Then who am I?""Eh. You're Yu, too. Other than that, I've got no clue."The infuriating grin is still there..."So, is there anything I can DO in here, or is it just talking to you?" You ask, breaking the momentary silence. "Weelllll.... If you go outside, there are PLENTY of weaker shadows you could fight. But you DON'T want to do that right now. What with them being whipped into a frenzy and all." The doppleganger replies, waving at what now seems to be a vague outline of a door. "It happens every once in a while. Something just makes 'em snap, and go crazy eating each other and whatever poor bastard gets caught out there." "...Why aren't you in a frenzy, then? You said you're a Shadow...""Oh, that's something for me to know, and you to figure out on your own." He says, chuckling some. "...""Anyway, it was my mistake to pull you in here. Want me to help you out?">Accept>Decline, for the moment>Write in
So I decided to actually search for Yu/Yu.It exists. Why this?

>>27248279> Any poor schmuck huh? Tell yourself what you saw on the TV.
>>27248279"So, then you're me, since we're both Yu, right?"More importantly, there was a woman here, a moment ago? Where is she, it looked liek she was in danger.
>>27248279"I don't imagine you know anything about what i saw on the other side of the ... screen(?) before getting pulled in here, do you?"
>Going to be away for a short bit. I'll start writing when I get back.
This... Has the potential to be awesome. I wouldn't mind Yu tag-teaming with Shadow Yu to fight all the bubs who would see fit to take Yu down.
Short bit was longer than I thought. >The Writening, it begins
>You're me, right?>Who was the woman on TV? Was she caught up in that?"Two things, before I go." You say, catching a look from the Shadow. "If I'm Yu, and you're Yu, doesn't that mean that I'm you and you're me?""Nope! You aren't me. I can't be you. " He returns, shrugging. "Don't ask me what the hell that means, 'cause I don't know. I just know that I'm Yu, and you're Yu, but we aren't both Yu. Now, what was the other thing?""Before I came in, the TV showed a woman being chased by monsters, probably those lesser Shadows you mentioned. Know anything about that?""Ahhh, THAT'S what the commotion outside was. All I knew before this was that someone dropped in a few days ago, and had been drifting aimlessly since." The Shadow replies, nodding. "About half an hour ago, her presence vanished. Pretttyyy sure she got eaten."...That's depressing. "Anyway, ready to leave, Yu? " He asks, shrugging at your response. "Let me get this exit set up, then..."He seems to concentrate for a moment, before a pillar of TV sets falls from the ceiling, somehow, and slams into the floor. "Walk right in, and you'll fall right out." He says, pointing to the sets. "If you want to stop in for a chat sometime, knock first." >Thank him and leave>Say you'll do that, and leave>One more thing...>Write in
Rolled 4>>27249176Search, there is still hope unless we see a corpse!

>>27249176This>>27249209>>27249266her presence disappeared, pretty sure she can't be saved bromosapien, although, we could ask the other Yu to take a looksee again, just before we leave. for curiouity's sake."One more thing, You're sure this other person's... gone already? Nothing to do about it?"
>>27249176>Why don't you come with me? I've got some space in my bedAh, my own clone, now neither of us will be virgins
>>27249337Yes. Sorry Dojima, suddenly twins.> I just woke up and he was there I promise!
Rolled 4, 2 = 6Making a roll, for purposes.
Rolled 8, 8 = 16>Mind double checking?>Want to come with me?"Would you be willing to try one more time? For curiosity's sake?" You ask, looking to the door. "I want to be sure I'm not leaving someone to their death here."The Shadow nods at that. "Yeah, sure." He says, closing his eyes and pinching his nose......."..I got nothing. She's gone, man." He says, sighing. "Sorry.""That's... A shame." You manage to say, before stepping towards the sets. "Say, care to leave with me? It's gotta be boring here alone.""Hah. Thanks, but no thanks." He says, shaking his head. "I've got no clue what'd happen to me in your world. Hell, I'm pretty sure being here is bad for normal people.""Well, the same offer is extended to you. Feel free to hop through if you want to talk, but knock first." You say, offering a handshake. "Hah. No problem." He replies, accepting it. You walk into the tower of TVs, giving a short wave as you fall.==============...You find yourself on your bedroom floor, sprawled out. That was a rough trip. Looking at the clock, you see that it's past 12:30. Seems you took your time talking to that Shadow... Time for bed. ==================
That wasn't so bad of a trip to the shadow world.Time to sleep. And consideration about what to do with this information.
>>27250253is that tonight's set then? or more to come?
More to come. Just blocking it, since it will be a new day.
>Tuesday, April 12th, 2011, 6:30 AMYou wake up to your alarm going off next to your ear. That's right. After the supernatural weirdness of last night, you have school this morning... Best be getting ready.=======Less than ten minutes later, you're downstairs, walking in on your uncle eating a bowl of cereal. "Ah, you're up early." He says, giving you a look. "I got a call for another missing person case this morning, so I'll be heading out earlier than I expected." He pauses for a moment, looking at the clock."Though I really should be going now." He says, standing up. "There's some lunch money on the fridge for you and Nanako, though she usually takes a boxed one. Her school's on the way to yours, so if you walk with her, she'll guide you most of the way.""Alright, thanks." You say as he tosses his dishes into the sink, picks up his jacket, and leaves. ...Your school starts at 8:30, it seems. Looks like you have time to kill.> Wait around. There's a TV in the living room you can watch.> Make yourself some lunch.> Write in

>Make lunchSomething inside of you sparks!You busy yourself for a while, before you hear a thud from upstairs, like a small child sleepwalking into a door. Ignoring it in your singleminded inspiration, you continue your cooking escapades, eventually...Creating an odd looking slop, though one that smells heavenly. A simple taste of it proves it's not just the smell that's good, but the taste, overwhelming your senses and leaving you dazed for a good minute. You hurriedly pack the ambrosia you created into a few containers- it seems you've made more than enough for yourself inadvertently. Significantly more. You think you have enough for as many as FIVE people...(1/2)
(2/2)"H-hello?" A quiet voice comes from behind you. Turning around, you see a small girl in a pink schooldress, with pigtails. This must be your little cousin, Nanako. "Oh, hello." You say, turning to face her. "I was up early, so I thought I'd make some lunch for myself. Sorry about the mess...""Um...""Oh, right. I'm your cousin, Yu. Your father told you about me, right? I'm going to be staying here for a year." You realize why she seems so nervous. "Oh. Um... I'm Nanako! Hello!" She says, perking up. "What's that?"You realize she's pointing at the three tubs of glorious ambrosia you crafted. "The source of the smell, actually. It may look horrible, but it tastes great, and seems pretty filling." You say, resting your hand on one. She seems unconvinced... >Offer to give her one. >Shrug>Write in
>>27251728>>Offer to give her one.This shit be cash, yo.
> Let her try some.
>>27251728Offer her one, of coursewe'll be sharing the house with her, makes sense to make friends, and good food makes good friends
>>27251728Ambrosia? In Greek Mythology, Ambrosia was the food of the Go... Oh, I see what you did there.
>>27251728>>Offer to give her one.I know it might not look like much, but I'm sure you'll like it. "Sorry that we didn't meet last night, I'm sure it must be startling to wake up to what amounts to a stranger cooking in your house.

>>27252583Fine ill watch a speedrun or something
>Offer to share/let her try some"Sorry that we didn't meet last night, I'm sure it must be startling to wake up to what amounts to a stranger cooking in your house." You say, before taking one of the containers and offering it to her, along with a... Hm. Guess fork is the best choice for this stuff. "Want to try some?""Um... Sure!" She says, taking the tub and opening it, before taking a bite."It's good!" Her expression changes to a sunny smile, and you can practically see the flowers floating around her. "I had hoped you'd like it." You say, grinning. "Feel free to take the whole thing.""Thanks!" She replies, closing it up and setting it aside."I was going to make breakfast, though..."You look at the pans, utensils, and cutting boards in the sink. "Want to try making something together, then?""Sure!"==============You and Nanako successfully made breakfast, then set out for school, yourself with the four remaining tubs of glorious ambrosia stowed safely in your bag."Keep going straight here. " She says, as you walk through the rain by the Samegawa river's flood plain. "My school's this way. Thanks for the food!" With that, she turns off walking on cheerfully under her umberella. You continue walking towards your school.=============About five minutes later, an idiot on a bike barrels past you, screaming what amounts to "OH CRAP OH CRAP OH CRAP" as he does so, before you hear a thud, like a moron hitting a concrete pole.As you walk on, you see the student standing, clutching his gut or crotch in pain, and his bike on its side next to him>Check on him?>Leave him be?>Write in
>>27252751>Check on him
>>27252751>Check on him?"Hey, you alright?"
>>27252751>Check on the idiotWho the hell crashes their bike?

>>27252751>Check on him?
>>27252751>>Check on him?Oi, you alright?
>>27252815I'll agree with you, he strikes me as stupid.
>>27252751>write insteal his bikebut seriously, check on him, dust him off, make friends
>>27252751>"Is your bike okay?"
>>27252751>C- C- C- Check it OutWe gotta be a bro and help em out.
>Check on him"Hey, you alright?" You ask, walking over to the idiot. "Just... peachy..." He manages to squeak out. Seems you know where he slammed into the bike. "Alright, then. If you don't want any help...""No... Please.."You help the idiot up, and manage to get him to start walking.After a few minutes, when his... Pain... dies down, he begins to speak. "Thanks for checking on me back there, man." He says, extending his hand in an offer of a handshake as he guides his bike. "Name's Yosuke Hanamura." "Not a problem." You reply, accepting the handshake. "Only a real heel would have left someone down like that. Yu Narukami.""So, new in town?" He asks, as the two of you continue walking."Yeah. Just moved here last night." You start, continuing through the rain. "I'm staying with my uncle for the next year because my parents got a transfer.""Ah, I get you." He replies, looking at his own feet. "My dad's a manager at the new Junes here, and I moved here 'bout six months ago when he got the job.""Huh. Must be nice." You say offhandedly, before you notice his expression change to a more somber one. "Yeah, I guess." He says, rubbing his neck. "Well, looks like we made it to school. See you around."With that, he rolls his bike off and you walk into the school...============(1/2)
(2/2)As you wait outside your classroom for the teacher to introduce you, you hear people quietly talking inside. Something about 'King Moron'... ...Seems you have a few moments to yourself before-Oh god. Those... THOSE TEETH"You the new kid, then?" The man asks, the whole combination of buck teeth, cheap suit, and ugly tie stunning you momentarily. "Follow me in there."He opens the door, stepping through, and you follow. You notice a familiar face in the classroom, sitting a few seats back, who seems to perk up a bit when he sees you. "Awright, shut your traps!" He yells, catching everyone's attention. "I'm Kinshiro Morooka, your homeroom teacher from today forward! First things first! Just 'cause it's spring doesn't mean you can swoon over each other like-" ...You blank out for a few moments as the teacher rants. "-as much of a loser here as he was there, so you girls better not get any ideas about hitting on him! Tell 'em your name, kid, and make it quick.">Write in
Rolled 6>>27253573"Yu Narukami, Sir Buckteeth"

>>27253573"Who are you calling loser?"
>>27253573Hi im Yu Narukami and WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR TEETH
>>27253585You're addressing to the class, not to him
>>27253573>You callin' me a loser? And my name's Yu Narukami. Nice to meet you all!
>>27253573> Yu Narukami, pleased to meet you.
>>27253573"Wow, do they actually allow teachers to get away with such blatant harassment of students here?"I'm Yu Narukami, nice to meet you all. You all must have the patience of saints to deal with him."
>>27253641Strike the "Wow". Other than that, seconded.
>>27253573"Hi, I'm Yu Narukami, pleased to meet you."Do NOT mention the teeth. If the various anons speculating that our party is going to be different are right, I'd rather not be on a potential teammate's 'Shit-list'.
>>27253573> I find that you have assumed a few things about my character, that I would be so easy as to accept flirtations from people I have just met, that I am not already in a relationship, or that I like girls. Or guys. For all you know I don't like anyone in a sexual manner. So excuse you sir, and good day!>Fly out the window and into the sunset.

Rolled 13>>27253886>>27253889Chill, it's outside of the first 5, doesn't count.
>>27253899Nope. You roll best of 4 for Charm, if you'll read the character sheet. With the best of 6 being your crit range. Enjoy the fun.
>>27253899I blame everything on..... waldo, he gave me a cursed charm and he won't take it back... yeah that's it
He actually was, sometimes.You don't learn that until it's past tense, though.
when can we fuck Kanji
>Mockery"As you command, oh Sir Buckteeth. " You say, performing an over-exaggerated bow to the thing calling itself a teacher. As he seems to be sputtering for a moment, you turn to the rest of the class.>Charm>20"I'm Yu Narukami. Nice to meet you all. You all must have the patience of saints to deal with him daily." You practically sparkle as you do this. ...At least one girl swoons. The teacher seems to find himself as you continue to beam at the now adoring class."THAT'S IT! You're on my shit list, starting twenty minutes ago!" He yells, glaring at you. "NOW LISTEN UP! This town is miles away from your big city of perverts and assholes, in more ways than one. You better-"He continues to rant, until a short haired girl in the middle row raises her hand. "Excuse me, but is it alright if the new guy sits here?" She asks, looking directly at Morooka. "Yeah, yeah. Go siddown kid. I'll deal with you later." The teacher mutters, waving you off. ...From the expressions of awe you get, it seems like you just did the unthinkable in front of your classmates. This will be a good year.============(1/2)
(2/2)After a few hours of lecture on the value of respect for your elders, and for not whoring around, the class finally ends. "That's it for today. Normal lectures start tomorrow." Morooka says, glaring at you. "Now I'm going to be talking to some people about someone."With that, he stomps out of the room, obviously still angry over the insult."Holy CRAP, you are THE bravest guy I've met!" Yosuke says, walking over to you. "I haven't seen ANYONE stand up to King Moron like that before!" A number of murmured agreements and nods can be heard and seen around the classroom."You know this guy, Hanamura?" Your neighbor, the short haired girl, asks, giving both you a lookover again, as though trying to figure something out. "Met him on the way here, after he... Helped me up from a fall." The Prince of Junes says, wincing as he recalls earlier. >Write in

>>27254361Eh? Sure, why notIt's probably a luck boost
>>27254301Teachers who don't do their duty to try to educate their charges and use it to belittle them are usually people who have little love for themselves- I pity him, really. Also, if I said anything to offend you earlier, Yosuke, I'm sorry."Look at the girl. "Thanks for earlier, but I didn't catch your name, miss...?"
>>27254379Wait whatWhat could we said to Yosuke to offend him?
Rolled 4>>27254361Is this a social link or something?
>>27254301Give Yosuke a hug.
>>27254405Nope. Like the Lovers Perk, it will give you a suitable benefit. However, this one -may- have a downside...
>>27254405No, perk, check the character sheet in the OP
>>27254301chat with yosuke, ask after the girl's name, see who else is in the classalso, class ends means its lunchtime, right?
>>27254397He looked upset and was really quick to break off conversation and head off with the whole 'it must be nice' line from Yu. W made some sort of fo paux and should apologize.
>>27254471Oh yeahIf it is, we must cause another sploosh flood by treating people to our ambrosia

>>27254567There's nobody else notable in class
>>27254513Dear lord our crit range is now 11
>>27254513Upupupupupupupupupupupupupupupupupupupupu~Looks like its time for criticals to become unbearable!~
>>27254608On social rolls, yes.
>>27254620Thank you for that picture. Seriously.
>>27254685So we either swagger through, or drop spaghettiSounds fun
>>27254582we don't know that
>>27254762If it's lunchtime, treat Yosuke, mention to Chie you have two spare servings left
>>27254513You know, I'm going to suggest that you not do that. That's going to make 55% of *all* rolls, and 71% of all social rolls, be critical (whether success or failure). It's a guaranteed recipe for straight "lolrandumb XDDD".(It's also not something you can reasonably call a "perk", but that's a completely separate argument.)
>>27254762To Chie>"Yu Narukami, new in town."Attempt to Charm even harder.
>>27254867You raise a fair point. I suppose I can reduce it to a +2 range extension, to a total range of 7. Is that more acceptable to your math?
Rolled 1>>27254991A little, what happens if we increase the fortune arcana?
>>27255027More 7s, of course. I was planning a "Negate 1 once per thread", a "+7 to one roll", and a few other things. Also, wow.
>>27255035*to one roll per thread"Damn forgetting to put things.
Rolled 14>>27255035That doesn't count right?
>>27255097I called for no rolls. It doesn't count.
>>27254991Normal 45.87% crit, social 64.18% crit. Not really much better, in my book.The underlying problem, in my view, (I guess it's not a separate argument!) is that increasing the crit range equally on both ends of the scale is a firm and unambiguous net loss for the players. Things don't cancel out: bad rolls will generally have worse and more permanent consequences ("Life is truth, and never a dream...") than good rolls will have good consequences.(An actual separate argument would be "so, how is that related to the Wheel of Fortune card?".)
>>27255140What if we were using a d100?
>>27255027>>27255035... although I hadn't noticed the "Rank 1" there. If Rank 2 is something like "your critical success range is the first seven rolls, while your critical failure range is the first six" -- things notionally becoming more controllable as the power of the alien Fortune Arcana becomes more comfortable to us (or similarly fluffed)... well, that's a different beast, isn't it? Still not very Fortune (X)-ish, but that's admittedly even more subjective.>>27255178Changing the die size does change things significantly. I'll run the math assuming criticals only on 1 and 100 in a minute.>>27255108Oh, also: more die rolls per roll-request means each thread reaches autosage faster. (You may or may not care about this.)
>>27255140I'll try to keep the consequences roughly equal for both successes and failures, I'd like to note.(As for how, it IS the card of luck and varying opportunities. I see critical modifications as suitable for the theme.)
>>27255265Hm... I'll just go with the planned Rank 2 ability, I suppose. >Sheet updated http://pastebin.com/txQXezA5And I think I'll call it a night, as well, due to a lack of response at the moment, and being in autosage. I'll write up the next thing when I start the next thread. Later, all.
>>27255441SHITWhen's the next time?
>>27255456Probably a night when I'm not exhausted from work/have work at 6AM.Most likely Wednesday.
>>27255268>I'll try to keep the consequences roughly equal for both successes and failures, I'd like to note.Yeah... that's probably bad. The problem isn't just individual rolls, it's successive rolls. Gambler's ruin: if on average you break even, you'll always lose in the end.(A high probability of criticals devalues skill and circumstance bonuses, so there's less motivation to play to your strengths and more motivation to do something completely fucking stupid. And my experience has been that no quest needs to give its readers _more_ motivation to do something completely fucking stupid.)>>27255178With 1d100, crits on 1 and 100, normal is 12.81% critical, social is 23.48% critical. For comparison purposes, 3 unmodified d20s (as used in Fate/Stay Again) give a 25.75% chance of criticality.
>>27255441Alright. Have a good night.
