Hey you! Yes you! Do you wish to defend the human race from an onslaught of giant monsters from the sea? Go out there and look like a total boss while you beat back the fascist Kaiju for the glory (and survival) of the Motherland? Risking life and limb in a Giant Robot with a huge fuckoff flamethrower and LIGHTNING FISTS (but no ejection seat)?If not too bad, the giant monster is already here and you're the closest thing available to pilot.This is a PLAYTEST for a simple d6 Giant Robots Punching Giant Monsters simulation meant to help me get a better grasp on what I should/should not allow as abilities, skills, etc. What is simple d6? Find out here:> http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Simple_D6_-_Third_EditionDa rules:First three votes determine your action (anons that vote to flee will not be counted and promptly shot for cowardice).Then I will allow the thread to roll em.Fascist Kaiju is under the GM's control.Next post will be the CS of the proud defender of the motherland CHERNO ALPHA.
Defender of the motherland CHERNO ALPHAConcept:Giant robotAspects:Combat - Def. 3 - HP 6Skills:- Close combat-- Grappling-- Punching--- Tesla Enhanced Piston Punching- FlamethrowingAbilities:Incinerator Turbines - A nuclear powered flame-thrower that confers a flat d6 damage upon a hit (as in the result of the d6 is directly added to the damage, no need to roll a six).URAAAH! - Cherno Alpha may roll to charge. When doing so, the task resolution chart is used. Upon a success, Cherno gains a free extra turn to do horrible things to it’s opponent.
>>29489371Why don't you remake this and put quest in your topic so people can conveniently filter you.
Sheet for the Fascist Kaiju. I forgot to mention, you may make it extra hard by selecting one extra ability for her. Like with action votes, she gains the first ability to reach three votes OTACHIConcept:- Fascist KaijuAspects:Combat - Def. 2 - HP 6Skills:- Close combat-- Grappling--- Prehensile tail- Spitting- ((You choose anon))Abilities:Flight - Upon three turns of successful grapple attacks in a row Otachi may lift her opponents up in the air, reducing the attack die of her opponent by 1Acid Spit - A successful ranged attack lowers the combat defence of Otachi’s opponent by 1 in addition to doing damage
>>29489403This is a playtest. One where I put in fluff because I feel like it, but in the end a PLAYTEST. Quite different from a quest.Anyway, TEST START!Setting: Nakhodka Bay, east of Vladivostok. Cherno Alpha begins at the end of the A188, Otachi at the harbour 1km southwest of Cherno's postion. Movement speed is loosely 500m per turn.> ROLL initiative> VOTE Plan of action> VOTE extra Fascist Kaiju skill
Will I get to have sex with gigantic monstergirls and explore their insides?
>>29489545>> VOTE Plan of actionI say we rush the alien bastard. Gotta engage him when he's still far from civilization, so we can pulp him where he can't spill blood on our tiny non-robot comrades.
>>29489545Sounds quite like a quest bruh
>>29489429>Fascist KaijuYou lost me.
>>29489611i agree i say we get that arsehole in a head lock then punch him in the face
>>29489595No.>>29489611Nakhodka City is currently abandoned, most of it's industry has relocated to Vladivostok.>>29489623Testing RP mechanics counts as a quest now?
>>29489743>noWell fuck that, then. Good day, sir.
>>29489545>VOTE extra Fascist Kaiju skillFree Electron LaserMight as well keep things challenging.
>>29489743It is essentially a quest thread. You are doing what QMs do. Have people roll in the thread, then you do an update.
>>29489808Gotta say I agree with this anon, though I totally want to play. It's an uneasy truce that the quest and anti-quest fags have. They'll shit up the thread if we don't let them easily filter.
>>29489881Exactly. I'm trying to keep your thread from being shat upon.
>>29489915in that case lets get this shit storm on the road and kick some Kaiju arse
>>29489960Well you guys can do that once >>29489403is done. Otherwise someone is going to shitpost.
>>29489881I duly apologise if I offend someone's sensibilities but I just do not see a playtest and a quest as the same thing. I judged that by the standard set by the anon that ran those FATAL fecht threads. Those were not marked quests either and are pretty much the same thing as what I'm trying to do here. Largest difference between the two as far as I see it is that I'm using a functional system of course.
>>29489881>>29489915>>29489808Eugh. You guys are worse than questfags and antiquestfags put together. It's just nauseating. To hell with your arbitrary unenforceable compromises that matter not to either quests or this thread.Keep calm and carry on.
>>29489972No one is going to shitpost. Someone is, however, going to kick kaiju ass. Let's focus on that.
>>29489991Allegedly functional. Also we can't fuck the kaiju so screw this.
GOD DAMN ITSOMEBODY PUNCH SOMEBODY
Rolled 1Well, it's simple d6, so I'm guessing initiative is a sixer.
Rolled 1>>29490088Locked.> rolling initiative for OTACHIAlso:> CHERNO ALPHA: Charge if possible
Rolled 4>>29490270Well fuck. Reroll initiative please.
>>29490088Looks like Cherno is slow today>>29490270But so is our Kaiju! They both sort of stand there looking at each other having forgotten their script

>>29490496Cherno only has a flamethrower with a range of 150m... Aaand I just realised I did not put that in it's sheet. See, this is why this thread exists: To filter out mistakes like that before I unleash this encounter on my players. Thank you anon.Flamethower range = 150mSpit range = 200m
>>29490636Write hasty memo to design team instructing them to attach Katyusha system to Jaeger.
>>29490669I watched the movie but have no idea what the fuck is going on here.Is there more to Pacific Rim than just the movie?Or are you simply just pulling in ideas from other mech type games/scenarios?

>>29490804Damage: 4 points - 3 def. = 1 point of damageEXTRA: Acid spit reduces def by 1.Because of the charge Cherno Alpha is too late to step aside the stream of biting acid and is showered by it. The blue poison corrodes away a massive slab of armour and damages several internal systems. However, the mighty Cherno is a jeager built to last: Redundancies kick in so fast that it barely pauses as it proceeds to:> first vote to get to three votes decides Cherno's next actionCHERNO ALPHA current stats:Combat - Def. 2 - HP 5/6
>>29490709I'm playtesting a system for a homebrew pacific rim campaign. This is a standalone playtest with a thin layer of fluff added. There's no story here other than 'There is a Kaiju over there, go punch it until it dies.'
Rolled 6>>29490892 So we're about 100 meters apart now? I say we turn up the heat and blast Otachi with our flamers.
>>29490963do that and roast the bitch then move in and knock her teeth out
General reminder: You can either charge or use the flamers, not both at the same time.
>>29490942>There's no story here other than 'There is a Kaiju over there, go punch it until it dies.'JUST LIKE THE MOVIE
>>29491247That would be grappling.>>29490963>>29490981Also a clarification on how the flamethrower works: The turbines confer a flat d6 extra damage on a successful hit. This means that you get to roll 2d6 to hit (Base d6 + Flamethrowing skill). IF this attack hits THEN you roll another d6 worth of damage to add up to it. Note that the turbines can be used in melee if so desired!(Lastly I'm kind of surprised no one's charging given that it's mechanically the best option if I'm looking at Cherno's sheet)
>>29491524Can we combine charging with piledriving?
>>29491555As it stands, on a successful charge you gain a (degrees of succes) number of free turns to do horrible things to Otachi. So yes you can piledrive Otachi, then proceed to do other horrible things to her as a follow up without giving her the chance to retaliate. Piledriving counts as a grappling attack.((I'm thinking the URAAA ability needs to be revamped, now that I'm looking it over.))
>>29491703> As it stands, on a successful charge you gain a (degrees of succes) number of free turns to do horrible things to OtachiThat contradicts what you posted earlier:> URAAAH! - Cherno Alpha may roll to charge. When doing so, the task resolution chart is used. Upon a success, Cherno gains a free extra turn to do horrible things to it’s opponent.This says only one extra turn, not degrees of success.
>>29492065Oops. It's supposed to be number of degrees of success that determine the number of free turns. Yes I am aware this way lies a potential one shot, hence why I'm thinking it's a bit too OP at the moment. On the other hand, it's fucking Cherno Alpha charging, and Cherno is not exactly the lightest Jeager in existence.
>>29491703If we succeed on the grapple, can we attempt a non lethal takedown?
>>29492198... You would need to bring the Kaiju down to exactly 0 HP but yes it is possible.
>>29492276I'm sure the lab boys would appreciate the chance to vivisect a live Kaiju.
>>29492352Ah, okay. For a moment there I was afraid you were >>29489595I hope you can see why I was worried.
>>29491555I can dig this. Let's piledrive this bitch!>>29490892Just update already, I don't think there's a lot of interest in this thread.
>>29492564Gonna need a tiebreaker then, because both of these have two votes:> Charging Piledriver!> Burn baby burn!
> Charging Piledriver!CHOO CHOO MOTHERFUCKER
>>29493106Vote called, Cherno will do his best avalanche impression then.> steals the gif I wanted to useOh well.Roll 'em!Base d6 + Giant Robot d6 = 2d6
>>29493174>>29493174... Are you me?Got the gist of it right though, 2d6 please.
Rolled 6, 2 = 8>>29493244Rollan'
>>29493298> 4 degrees of successYeah. So. 4 turns worth of free attacks.Might need to nerf that ability in the future.
>>29493511Whups, forgot to post the write up.Undeterred by the molten armour dripping from it's front, Cherno continues it's unstoppable charge. The agile Otachi realises it's mistake and desperately tries to get out of the way of the Russian behemoth but, in the abandoned trainyard that is the battlefield, there is nowhere to hide. Nowhere to run. There is only the fury of Cherno's mighty bulk as it smashes into the filthy beast that dared defile Mother Earth with it's presence. Fuelled by the primal hate of the entire human race as well as solid, bulky Russian nuclear reactor Cherno smashes into Otachi like a freight train, dazing the creature as Cherno:> [ ] Punches it with the mighty fists powered by pure hate, Russian engineering genius and of course Tesla lightning! ((Punch, 4d6))> [ ] Breaks the fascist Kaiju's back through superior Soviet Wrestling skills! ((Grapple, 3d6))> [ ] Gives it a warm Russian welcome with it's nuclear powered Flamethowers! ((2d6 to hit + another d6 of raw damageYou can pick four attacks from this list. Creative write ups may get a bonus to damage.
>>29493881Grapple -> flamethrower -> piledriver -> punch.Grab it in a bear hug, burn the bastard, then piledrive it. Then punch it in the face for good measure.
>>29494037I dunno. I thinkLeft hook -> Right hook -> Piledriver -> TurbinesWould be better. Looking at the sheet a punch is 4d6 while piledriver, going by >>29491703 counts as a grapple which is only 3d6. Turbines are iffy because it's only 2d6 to hit.
>>29494415... One of those is not like the other.Also, I like this write in:>>29494037Nice, brutal, to the point. It will receive a +1 bonus damage on that final punch.This one:>>29494289I'm just not seeing it. Probably has to do with those cold mechanics you're citing, makes it kind of boring. Come on, make me see it! Otachi's probably dead by the end of it, so give some form of proper finisher or something. Hell maybe something for the pilots to yell at the end of it. Right now it's just kind of boring...Yes yes I said it was a playtest not a quest but good write ins are part and parcel of the system in my opinion.
Rolled 1Roll to whip my dick out and piss on the kaiju until it dies(DC 80)
Rolled 55>>29494933Shit, critical failure, rolling to see how bad it is.
>>29494933Whilst attempting to piss on the kaiju, you ripped your own dick off, congrats.
Disregarding the trolls, I need votes on creative brutalities.I can't help but feel that I've done something wrong, I thought this sort of playtest would be right up /tg/'s alley but so far turn out has been disappointing.
>>29495187>>29494037 here, I just got off work. Desk job that involves lots of waiting, so I managed a post, but still. Lots of us are probably busy.
>>29495262True, I forgot not everyone's a eurofag like me.
>>29494037"Welcome to Russia!"-> Lariat! (is a grapple right?)"You must be cold of the swimming!"-> Flamethrower"Let us introduce you-"-> Piledriver"To Mother Earth's soil!"-> Smash the fucker's face in with a punch, preferably straight into the ground.

Rolled 4>>29496335(insert witty fire related pun here)
Otachi, upon seeing death incarnate approach in the form of the towering Cherno Alpha, desperately tries to hop out of the way. The scaly beast barely dodges Cherno’s lariat with an awkward hop and stretch. This last awkward dodge has two side-effects however. One, a crazy, deaf and drunk hobo that tried to piss on the Kaiju is reduced to a red smear as the beast steps on his head. Two, she cannot dodge the follow up wall of fire that Cherno sends forth to burn this scourge of the face of the earth. Burn damage: 1 + 4 = 5! Otachi reduced to 1 HP!Blinded by the roiling flames, screeching in pain, the Kaiju decided discretion is the better part of valour and tries to retreat. It’s maddened crawls allow it to just slip out of Cherno’s grip as the mighty Russian attempts an epic propaganda coup by imitating one of Russia’s most famous wrestling moves. However, then the mighty giant stops as fresh orders come in from high command. With the Kaiju this hurt, alongside with Cherno’s tesla fists, the local Pan-Pacific Defense Corps wants to try the impossible: Capture. Shrugging as much as it can, Cherno lumbers over to the blinded Kaiju’s head, places a fist on either side and unchains the wrath of the thundergod. The entire Kaiju shakes, seizes up, and falls unconscious.Punch damage: 1 Otachi reduced to 0 HP! Otachi is KO!END RESULT: Total victory! The capture of Otachi reveals a lot more about the Kaiju’s make up, and even ends up in a massive intelligence coup as a way through the rift is discovered. Stuffed like a turkey with all the nukes Humanity can scrounge together, the unconscious Kaiju is delivered to the breach, sealing it in a cataclysmic explosion and saving the world!
>>29492198You know, I never conceived you bastards would pull it off, but colour me amazed. Thank you elegan/t g/entleman and... elegant ladies. Can't think of something polite praising and feminine with /tg/ in it.Anyway. Thanks for the testing, I may return for more.
