Welcome to the XLVI installment of "Disney Villains Victorious."Disney Villains Victorious is a new /tg/ homebrew project based on the idea of a world, not entirely unlike our own, in which all the villains from all the Disney animated feature films were not defeated at the ends of their movies but were instead victorious, completing their goals in part or in whole.It is a world in which Ursula rules the seas, defied only by the uncatchable Pirate Lords, the cutthroat merchants of the East India Trading Company and the might of Atlantis and its magitech-toting mercenaries. It is a world where the grasslands and jungles and forests are prowled not only by fearsome primal beasts like Shere Kahn and Scar but also by the ruthless, tireless hunters that stalk them. It is a world where Europe has been divvied up between evil sorcerous monarchs like Maleficent, the Horned King, Grimhilde and Jafar, mad, inquisitorial clergymen like Frollo, and Dark Gods like Hades and Chernobog.It is not, however, a world completely devoid of courage, heroism or hope. Around the world, the PCs' characters and their allies plot and plan, fight and strive and win their own victories against the villains that would rule them. The time to fight and to be free is now.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=Disney+Villains+Victorioushttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Disney_Villains_Victorious

Planning on creating a character for tonight's playtest. Hopefully I will be able to attend and can use the newest character creation rules properly.
Is Cassim still leading the Forty Thieves in this setting?
>>36521125Reminder:Seventh and last playtest is today at 7pm EST. The players will be the escort (or part of) a group of atlantean archeologists exploring an egyptian tomb.Bring an On-A-Roll character with 50 lessons at Medium progression.Link to join in the OP.
>>36521226Don't remember discussing it, but since he never met Aladdin (him having been killed or rocketed away by Jafar) It seems logical.
>>36521237Thank you! I had thought I'd read that the setting would be in Egypt/Jafar's Sultanate, but I wasn't sure. Have to head off to work but will be working on my character.
>>36521237Running a power by everyone. I did this last thread, but didn't really get any feedback. It's exclusive to Hive Knights, who are just bees in a suit of armor.-Swarm Form: At the cost of a will point, the hive can be taken out of the armor and the bees can assume their true form as a swarm. In this form, the Hive knight gets triple speed, +8 Agility, does double brawl strikes and has a brawl score of 10, but -8 Robustness, to a minimum of 1, and takes triple damage from physical strikes, as the hive is exposed and the Queen at risk. This lasts up to 4 rounds, at which point the bees can't carry the hive anymore and drop it, leaving you defeated and unable to move unless you are in your armor. Obviously, you do not get equipment bonuses as a swarm.Is it overpowered? Underpowered?
>>36521381I dunno much about game design but maybe the minimum of +12 to Brawl is a little high, and unless you're up against an inner circle/villain the +8 agility does a lot to mitigate the glass cannon nature of the power. Also it sounds pretty much useless for non-nimble characters.
Bumping while at work and statting up my character.
Late afternoon bump. And reminder there's only 18 statblocks between us and the first release.

Question: We're starting these characters on the second Tier. Does anyone know how many itemization points we're allowed in equipment?
>>36525848It was said last thread we get get an additional +10 EP so 15 total. Gonna be posting up my character soon to both keep the thread alive and get some opinions.

>>36525987---Powers---Fastest Fingers in All the Lands- Spend a Will point. You gain a +5 bonus to Mechanics, Acrobatics, and Athletics checks for the remainder of the scene.Wind, Help My Feet to Fly- By spending a Will point you may attempt a single physics-defying feat of Acrobatics or Athletics (like running a short distance on a vertical wall or using a flight of passing birds as skipping stones to get to a nearby roof). The actual difficulty is up to the DM, and if he deems the act too impossible you are refunded the Will point.Quick Draw King- You may always make one attack in the surprise round, and never suffer penalties in the surprise round.The Quick And The Dead- Spend a Will point to immediately go first, regardless of your place in the initiative order.Scion of Zorro- Spend a Will point to gain +10 on any one flashy but not directly harmful strike with a melee weapon (like trying to disarm an opponent, or cut the straps of his armor, or cut your initials in his clothes).Sword Dance- As long as you are dual-wielding you may add half your Acrobatics or Music (rounding up) as a bonus to your Melee attacks.---Ideals---Any day away from adventure is a wasted day.Humans and apes are pretty much cousins, why can't we just go along?Knowledge is the real treasure, but actual shinies are nice too.---Goals---Zero: Unearth a forgotten treasure.On-a-Roll: Make an archeological discovery of international importance.Hero: Reveal the true history of the world.---Equipment---Twin Tulwars: Dual-wielded high-quality weapons, +4 MeleePadded Vest: +2 Prevent HarmAdventuring Journal: +2 AcademicsLucky Coin: +3 to any roll to avoid trapsGrappling Hook: +2 to Acrobatics or Athletics when climbingMagnifying Glass: +2 to Insight rolls where such an item would actually helpTen foot pole, rope, mallet & stake: Can't delve without.
>>36526016Physical Description:Dark of fur and long of limb, this remarkable example of ape wears a decorated padded vests and carries two curved swords and a battered rucksack on his back.Rundown:Monkeys have a very particular place in the Khanate's caste system. Sher Khan's political ties with the Kingdom of the Red Flower put the second only to the great cats in terms of rights and leeway, but exactly for this reason many see them as upstart foreigners reaping benefits they don't deserve. Kapi's modest origins and choice of career (adventurer and archeologist, or as he is often called "glorified graverobber") certainly didn't help. This is why he's always preferred the quiet of forgotten tombs and overgrown temple to the hustle and bustle of cities and his "untouchable" human cousins to his fellow animals. Though he has achieved his dream of leaving his country and explore the wider world, homesickness can never be truly banished.
>>36525987There is only human in the Disneyverse. Scandinavians speak the exact same language as bears, Indians and chinks. Or everyone has a babel fish.
>>36526504Well, then I think I'll take a point from Linguistics and put it into Occult. And change the last two languages to egyptian hieroglyphs.

>>36526780furriesAlso your goals are really weak.
>>36526780Characters for the playtest are supposed to have reached On-a-Roll after spending their last lesson, so you'll have to take a point off Agility and Deceit. We also decided Will doesn't go up when you change tier, only Strikes.Ideals are a little broad but except that nice character.
>>36526826CANON furries, but yeah basically a furry nonetheless I suppose.Are they really? I was unsure how specific/broad to get so yeah, any suggestions on how to improve them?
>>36526876No, I mean they're literally weak. Like, low-power. La is only a mid-tier king in strength.

Gain a +2 to deceit, persuasion and insight checks against the criminal element.- One Jump Ahead: Whether through training or sheer cowardice, gain +2 to Acrobatics or Athletics checks while fleeing the authorities or more than 3 pursuers.- Diamond in the Rough - You've seen a lot of stolen merchandise in your time, both mundane and magical, granting you gain +2 to checks when trying to decipher the value (statistical or otherwise) of an item.- Wait. Did She Just Steal My Wallet?: You are a sticky-fingered thief and a darn good one too, granting you +2 to Legerdemain checks when stealing things. - Tin Ear: You ain't no Orphan Annie signing her heart out on the streets. You are immune to the affects of music, both harmful and helpful.
>reading through last thread>half the thing is discussions of Napoleonic history, gender standards, absolute monarchs and their responsibility and arguments for and against them, philosophical love and moralitywut
>>36527258---Powers---- Magic Fingers: A lifetime spent picking locks and pockets has left you with nimble fingers. Spend a will point to gain +5 to Legerdemain, Mechanics or Crafting checks for the remainder of the scene.- Snarky Snarking: Being sarcastic and smart-aleccy is almost part of the job description for a Street Rat. Spend a will point to gain +5 to persuasion checks while trying to make a point or convince someone of something.- Streets Smarts: Not all learning comes out of an old book or off a dusty chalkboard. Spend two will points to gain +10 to Insight or Travel checks until the end of the scene.- Like a Persian Princess: You've spent your whole life running across any and all surfaces and terrains imaginable. Spend two will points to gain +10 to Acrobatic and Athletic checks while traversing difficult environmental hazards.- As Good as Invisible: Sometimes, people just seem to not want to see you standing there. Spend two will points to gain +10 to Stealth checks while trying to disappear yourself for the remainder of the scene.- Mistress of Improvisation : You've never owned anything new in your entire life and have learned how to make do with what you have or to do without when necessary. If disarmed or stripped of your equipment, you may spend three will points to find an improvised weapon or tool of equal value to the missing item. - Less Talking More Running!: When the Nimble Girl starts running, it's time for everyone to start running. Spend three will points to rally your adventuring party in a spirited retreat, allowing them to share the highest Acrobatics and Athletics scores in the group for the purposes of running away from danger this scene.
>>36527266Yeah, I try to ignore off-topic discussion. Generally.Now, who's ready for some graverobbing? And moreover, should we use the Cauldronborn stats for mummies or what?
>>36527252Actually I was using the Chimera rules as a method of creating a Leopardperson(assuming that is allowed) from La's kingdom. They are not particularly happy to be under her rule and in the show they did revolt at one point if I remember correctly.
>>36527258Take out that extra point on agility and that 7 in adrobatics and you are golden. Goddamn good character, though. Nice job.>>36527266It's /tg/, man. That's what we do.
>>36527284---Equipment---- Mismatched Merc's Gear: An eclectic mix-and-matched ensemble including a pair of patched britches, a long beggar's tunic and an Atlantean tactical jacket with the sleeves cut off. (Light Armor +1)- Inherited Lockpicks: A rather unique set of antique lockpicks, embellished with tarnished silver scrollwork. (+4 Mechanics while picking locks)- Plentiful Pouches: Tied or clipped to several belts and bandoliers are a wide array of pouches, purses and phials for every predictable predicament. (+4 Legerdemain to conceal or reveal small objects)- Stolen Kitchen Knives: True, they may only be a pair of knives stolen from a kitchen somewhere, but they are well balanced and fit nicely in-hand. (+4 Melee)- Memento of Mother: A small, slightly bent golden bauble with a hunk of colored glass at the center, hung off a thin leather cord. (+2 Endure)---Ideals---- Try to stop acting so snarky and jaded all the time.- Prove to the others you're worth keeping around.- Prove to yourself that you are not a coward.---Goals---- On-a-Roll: Earn a fair share of the loot in a really big heist, scheme or flimflam.- On-a-Roll: Convince the Mercenaries to take you away to Atlantis with them at the end of the mission.- Hero: Train hard and earn enough respect to become a full-fledged member of the mercenary group and eventually an Atlantean citizen.- Hero: Return to the Sultanate of Agrabah leading an Atlantean A-Team and helping improve the lives of other Street Rats.
>>36527310Physical Description: Rana the Rat is a short, thin young woman who looks to be all gangly arms and legs without much of anything to note in the middle. Her hair is black and is short, thick and wavy. Her clothes are mismatched and threadbare, her skin is either deeply tanned or thoroughly dust-coated, and while not exactly malodorous, Rana does smell something like a rat covered in cardamom and paprika.Rundown: Having lived her life on the streets after the (presumed) death of her parents, Rana the Rat has finally found what she believes to be her "big break." Billing herself as a local guide and go-for, she has tried to ingratiate herself with a group of Atlantean mercenaries who have come to the desert I search of... Something? Rana really couldn't care less what it is she's supposed to be helping the Mercs find, so long as she can manage to help them find it. Maybe they'll give her a cut of the loot once its all over with. Maybe they'll even take her back with them to Atlantis. Maybe this really will be her big break, so long as she can keep herself from ruining it.
>>36527288By "Cauldronborn stats" you mean only stats, not the "cannot be killed without magic sword" bullshit, right?
>>36527288I thought last thread's off-topic discussion was pretty damn interesting, though. Especially when it was originally on-topic about Elsa and raising of a royal child, but the philosophical debate it spiraled into was intriguing as well.
>>36527330I think Cauldronborn can still just be killed by the regular 'smash the bones, scatter them' thing that most people would have to rely on. And yes, I mean their stats.
So, basically we're gonna have an entire party of Nimble Guys?
>>36527350I liked the debate too, but we probably should have stopped it when it moved off-topic, even if it was interesting. All that shit about raising a femaleheir apparent was great though, we should definitely mention it somewhere in the fluff.
>>36527405>Cherry bomb's KLR>1 page or so>Rules of Elsa's succession, training and eligibility>4+ pages
Oh i forgot to ask but on a few of the powers there is reference to spending 'heart points' what are those? Strikes? Will? Another resource?
>>36527478Didn't I write Churn-n-whirl's KLR some ~13 threads ago? we're using it on 1d4chan anyway. If there's a new one feel free to replace it if you think it's better.>>36527480That was the early alpha name for Will Points.
>>36527478Just keep sverd away from it, he knows more random fucking tiny details about history than is healthy
>>36527511I don't have a new/better KLR for him, I'm just saying that we shouldn't forget priorities.
>>36527478I'm not saying we write four pages about it or anything, just let that namefag from last thread write a couple sentences mentioning it in the klr or somewhere.
>>36527372>>36527330In the books they were invulnerable to all mundane weapons, so yeah, we can't do them as they were in the books. Also because when Taran struck one with Dyrnwyn in the final book, they all fell. ALL of them. Mind you, at this point the Black Cauldron had already been destroyed for 3 books.....but anyways, I think them reviving all the time and magic weapons keeping them down is the best way to stat them.
>>36527387I wasn't checking in in the thread while I was making Rana, so I hadn't noticed. Might be able to go with my second idea of a Cave Johnson styled charismatic archeologist but hat will take some time.
>>36527387Icould use Ted the Bug, but first I'd have to update him.

>>36529001Think it was posted by Ponderous.
>>36529001>His stats equal 84Holy fuck.
Currently statting up a Charming Guy in case having another Nimble Gal street rat proves to be problematic. I'm still at work though so it's slow going, but I hope to be out by the time the playtesting starts. If for some reason I can't be, anyone else should feel free to use the character if they want to.
>>36529130Yeah, probably needs a little rebalancing to bring him in line with Shere Khan.
>>36529166More like bring him in line period.He's more powerful than most of our 'high-power' kings like Maleficent and Facilier.
>>36529196Facilier needs a bit of a buff to his Powers, but not to his statline. That's Facilier's entire thing, most of his power doesn't come from him but instead from the Friends, who are interested in maintaining such a useful and skilled agent in the world.
>>36529248Actually, I'm pretty sure Facilier's stats are the highest in the game (except for Scar now) at 74.
>>36529290Well, you're right. His Robustness needs to go down to 7, because honestly he's a skinny guy. He should probably lose a bit of Agility, too.Also, what the hell are we doing with Dinosaur Island?
>>36529430No king, no one to overthrow, no King or Rule.
>>36529430Remember the T-rex from Fantasia? Remember King Arthursaurus Rex? THEY'RE THE SAME GUY NOW.
>>36529430Nob, the equipment limit for the playtest was +10 in total or +10 on top of the starting +5?
>>36529548Um.I don't remember. Let's go with +10 in total to keep things simple.

>>36530082Our last thread had 40 posters, which is about the average. We're just in a bad part right now, 16 Kings left to stat and then we're officially in beta.But yeah, the fact that magical realm and quest threads get so much attention while this and Hektor Hersey have only specific core groups is saddening. Does prove there are still a lot of good damn fa/tg/uys that such cool projects are getting done, though.
Okay guys, I'm tattig up Hades right now, and I got my OP cap onIf somebody could go in the wiki and boost up Ursula a little bit with some actual powers that would be appreciated. Maybe something related to craftfting and magic
>>36530082No, Anon, homebrews have always been cancer.
>>36530301>homebrews are cancerGo the fuck back to your quest threads, /v/.
>>36530082The thing is that the new thread's novelty wears off after a time and it disappears. We've had 47 threads in the past two and a half weeks and survived a very busy holiday. It's finals week now, so a lot of our core posters are pretty busy (myself included) but don't discount the work we've done. When the succubus threads and shitposting gets nearly 50 continuous threads in the same amount of time, then we can worry

Question about Ratigan, what is his status?The obvious victory for him has him as a royal consort to a robo Queen with Basil and Dosen Kersplatted, but I'm wondering what his status is here?
Rana-Anon here, stuck at work now due to an IT emergency. I'm really sorry that I can't make it to the playtest. I was really looking forward to it. If I can't poke my head in to spectate late on, I'll be eagerly awaiting the transcripts. Sorry everyone.
>>36532159Rules a global network of rats....I mean, mice....and brings in big bucks from dealing in information.
>>36532195That's a shame, anon. Hope you can make it to the campaign or something, since this is the last playtest before the real campaign.
>>36531997Wait. Is "bears" a term for Russians? That makes the whole thing make sense, OK.
>>36532221I'll be honest, I think he should also be in sine kind of position of "official" leadership, perhaps having a Stewart at the mice UN.Where does he live anyway? Since you know... Horny king.I'd recommend Frollo land personally, alternatively he could be in Atlantis since that place is really safe compared top everything else.
>>36532159>>36532447The way the KLR was set up, Ratigan's HQ is in England still. He still has Flaversham under his thumb, so he forced him to invent a pump/filtration system to bring in fresh air from far above the mists.
>>36532506That is pretty impressive considering the cauldron born.You know, since he's a moriarty expy, doesn't he be bored at this time having win? Any chance that he might be planning for a completely audacious scheme?
>>36532570>chanceThere's never a 'chance' when it's a sure thing, anon.
>>36532570>>36532615Although he's running his spy network for profit, Ratigan is trying to learn the Achilles' heel of all the kings, then sell that information to people who can do something about it. Once the kings are all in a vulnerable position, he'll have something prepped, I'm sure he's got Flaversham working around the clock on some monstrosity or another.
>>36532659>yfw the final villain of DVV one shots Churobog and declares himself mouse king of all life on Earth
>>36521125Okay, look, I know that using the non-Disney "Road to El Dorado" is well established by now, but hear me out.RtED was selected to "fill the hole" of Meso-America in the Disney-Villain pantheon. But that's wrong.In the 1950s, one of Disney's most profitable and ubiquitous properties was Davey Crockett, a TV miniseries they later released as a film, "Davey Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier". The film ends with Crockett's defiant last stand at the Alamo.The primary villain, of course, is General Santa Anna, who would capture the Alamo and execute Crockett, but in the tradition of "300 Spartans" the victory would prove to be pyrrhic: Santa Anna was later defeated, captured, and forced to declare Texas an independent nation.Of course, in Villains Victorious, this wouldn't be the case: Anna would have been victorious in crushing the Texan rebellion, and with that victory his power over Mexican politics would have been unquestionable. He could have easily moved past the role of President, and taken a title more fitting for the setting (even with his various failures and betrayals, in real life he eventually declared himself President-for-Life with the honorific "Most Serene Highness"). He apparently had an obsession with Napoleon.Thoughts?
>>36532880This sounds like something to change after the Beta is released. We are too close to the Beta right now to change such annimportant detail, and we're only doing animated films at the moment. Definitely something I'd want for a live action expansion, though.
>>36533006Not entirely, we do have Beckett and Davy Jones on the Kings list. You may be right about the Beta though.>>36532880It's a very good suggestion, we'll maybe host a poll after the current playtest wraps up.
>>36533006>POTCIt is too close to beta release, though.
>>36532880Good catch. With the acknowledgement that the change shouldn't delay the beta, this sounds like a better fit. Santa Anna was a great villain.>>36533006>we're only doing animated films at the momentThat's wrong though.>He apparently had an obsession with Napoleon.Doing a bit of reading on him, and I have an idea about this and his ability to play with the "big boys," his super-powered neighbors and rivals. More to come on this.
>>36532880It occurs to me that if Santa Anna kicked Texas' shit in and killed Davy Crockett, it'd give Alameda Slim an opponent to actively fight. He'd be mad as hell that one of his Tall Tales got executed, to say nothing of losing territory in Texas. He'd be Yosemite Sam levels of angry.
>>36532880I like this. Considering the fact that I have been to the Alamo numerous times, its quite cool
>>36533994>>36533844>>36533377>>36533056So, should we give Santa Anna a chunk of Mexico and the West Coast and leave the South to Kan, or give the whole thing to Santa Anna? Feels a bit wrong to lose the guy entirely this late in the game.
>>36533377>More to come on this.Effectively, the idea is that Santa Anna is host to an entity, the Horseman of War or something. Napoleon had been its previous host. It's a being which likes to empower ambitious men, then abandons them when they need them most.For some reason (plot hook?) Santa Anna was never abandoned in this way. As such has a greatly extended lifespan (assuming Villains Victorious happens in the early 1900s) as well as super-human tactical ability and charisma.>>36533844It's good to weave the different regions into each other.
>>36534107Give him northern mexico if anything. I still think it's a bit late to add new factions.
>>36534124Imperial Mexico is a great setting in general. Zorro was a Disney property at one point too, I'll note.
>>36534214Zorro was a Disney property at one point too, I'll note.
>>36534214>>36534260I am liking this more every second.>>36534163To be honest, there still isn't much involving Tzekel-kan, only a few fluff bits and his KLR, swapping it to El Generalissimo wouldn't be much of a loss.
>>36534107The premise here is "remove non-Disney properties, and here's a way to do it."In an off-brand "expansion", Kan could easily emerge out the jungles of Central America to threaten Anna's flank (just as Rasputin would arise in Russia, Ramses II would show up in Egypt, Eris would show up in the Mediterranean, etc)>>36534163Road to El Dorado was always a placeholder. It's a shame it took us this long to think of something else to fill in Central America, but now that we have a Disney property that fits I don't see why we need to keep using something from outside.
>>36534107Nah, I think it would be best to hand him a bit of mexico and a bit of California. Or maybe just move the whole of Mexico TO california. Have him keep it as a republic of sorts
>>36534339 The Beast to threaten Facillier and Radcliffe. Christ I want him bad
>>36534339>>36534328It's not that I don't agree, it's just that we are pretty darn late in development.
>>36534390>we are pretty darn late in development.There's just not that much written about the RtED setting, mostly because nobody wanted to write for something that felt like a placeholder. We really won't be losing much.
>>36534339>In an off-brand "expansion", Kan could easily emerge out the jungles of Central America to threaten Anna's flank (just as Rasputin would arise in Russia, Ramses II would show up in Egypt, Eris would show up in the Mediterranean, etc)The Iron Giant rampages through North America giving no fucks about Atlantean tech.
>>36534483>>36534339Point of clarification: Would the off-brand expansion take place at the same time as the core setting?
>>36534452Why don't we just use both? Both have the options of being interesting settings, so why not both.
What if I wanted the Talespin continuity, rather than jungle book?

>>36534925Maybe options for running settings that are composed of just one or maybe a handful of settings, rather than the massive mashup.>>36534757That's a bit too modern, come to think. Also not as much to work with in terms of going dark
>>36535065>playing as a minor badguyImagine a party of loser villains banding together to fight the setting antagonists so that they can become the antagonists of their own stories. They are also completely unaware that they are unintentionally saving the world and are seen as heroes by those they save.
>>36535185Well it would be hard to become a king without taking down another, the world is pretty well carved up.
>>36535185Or working for one of the major antagonists to further their ruler's domain. Tactical Atlantis espionage action against fucking pirates and sea monsters. The monkey troupe invading France to learn the secrets of the gypsies and their parties.
>>36535065Are all Disney properties allowed? And can a drawfag make these guys play poker?
>>36535345Xanatos would get his shit packed in by this setting. I don't think we're using superhero settings yet, but yes you could have them all at once depending on the splat. we don't have drawfags, I don't think.
>>36535345One anon pushed hard for Xanatos a few threads back, but it didn't work out. Meanwhile, the Marvel and Star Wars universes are just too... well, them, to have pretty much anything else fit.
>>36535345>many superhero systems already out there>many Star Wars systems already out thereXanatos cool for expansions though.
>>36535383Fair enough, the image seemed better in my head I guess
>>36535429What we need is a modern setting mashup option, without the anachronistic elements.
>>36535557Using BH6, hopefully.
I think we forgot about that one kingdom that was briefly shown in Enchanted. Oh well, it's pretty much a Snow White/Sleeping Beauty mashup.

There's only SO many future settings we can pull from though:((Note, I'll be pulling from a few obscure ones))>Tobi mask guy (BH6)>Dorris (Meet the robinsons)>A.U.T.O (WALL-E)>Xanatos (Gargoyles)>Drossel Von Flugel (Fireball)>Galactic Federation/HAMSTER VEIL/Evil stitch with maybe brat!lilo (Lilo and Stitch!)>John Silver (Treasure Planet)>King Candy (Wreck it Rolph)>Henry J. Waternoose (Monsters INC.)> Corrupted!Victor (Franken weenie)>EVIL EMPEROR ZURG! (Buzz light year of Star Command)>Bill Cipher & co. (Gravity Falls)>LORD HATER, 1# SUPER VILLAIN! (Wonder over Yonder)>CLU, with MCP serving under him (Tron)>Judge Doom (Who Framed Rodger Rabbit?)>THE RHINO (James and the giant peach)>Speckles (G-FORCE)And that's stretching it a bit.
>>36536355Hmm. Modernize some of the others? But that's just stretching things another way...
>>36536355James and the Giant Peach would probably fit the default setting better than the future one. There's very little to identify what time it takes place in and the New York scene definitely has a 20's/30's feel to it.Sure, it has a giant robotic shark, but this setting already has laser shooting giant robot lobsters and personal flying fishcars, courtesy of Atlantis
>>36536355don't forget like, all of star wars and the marvel movies.
>>36536458No thanks, what so ever. there are already TONS of systems for those settings, and all they would do is drag the setting downYou don't sing in marvel or star wars.
>>36536495What about the life day special?
>>36536515No. No. noooo
>>36536515You're a cruel man, Nob. Only a wizard could do so much malice.
>>36536355>>A.U.T.O (WALL-E)Wouldn't that basically be the same as before?With Humanity being fat and all?
Playtest is wrapping up, expect transcript soon.
>>36536355Wait you forgot that pollution guy, whatever the fuck his name was.He was sealed in a tree and shit, and somebody cut it down, and he got released and promptly wrecked shit. I think it started with an H. Hexxis I think? I think there was a hex in there somewhere.Also we could combine the modern and pixar, maybe even dreamworks, since most of those movies take place in modern times.
I wholeheartedly support the replacement of Road to El Dorado with Davy Crockett. Santa Anna would be a great character, and this would bring us, as far as I know, to 100% Disney.
>>36537402Santa Anna gives the pirates a king who they can interact with on a reasonable level. Santa Anna had zero scruples IRL, he'd have no problem using pirates for his own purposes.
>>36536495In general, we should stick to movies produced by "Wald Disney Pictures" and avoid the subsidiaries unless there's a really compelling reason.
>>36534124>Effectively, the idea is that Santa Anna is host to an entity, the Horseman of War or something. Napoleon had been its previous host. It's a being which likes to empower ambitious men, then abandons them when they need them most.>For some reason (plot hook?) Santa Anna was never abandoned in this way. As such has a greatly extended lifespan (assuming Villains Victorious happens in the early 1900s) as well as super-human tactical ability and charisma.Let's talk about this.While there's precedence to "supernaturalizing" an otherwise mundane villain (Frollo) I'm not sure it's something we should throw around so easily. That said, it's reasonable to assume Santa Anna needs an edge when his neighbors can summon shadow-demons, mind-control people by yodeling, and turn people into animals with a potion.We should probably go ahead and figure out what it is. Saying he's "host to an entity" who MIGHT be X is kind of meh.I say he has the Arc of the Covenant. Disney owns Indiana Jones now.
Hey guysI have an ideaWhat ifWhat if we combine Santa Anna and KanSanta Anna could be either a figurehead or generalAnd Tzel-Kan pulls the strings.
Here's playtest 7!: http://pastebin.com/ygcRPBzfHoo boy. That was an interesting one. Most of the kinks of 'how would that work' are gone now. Balancing is what's left to do, as is some more creation. Someone else is gonna have to do the recap, I'm off to bed.
Oh, before I go here have a poll: http://pastebin.com/ygcRPBzfPlease note that times indicated are EST.If it's gonna be hosted on Thursday, it'll start next week. If it's gonna be on Saturday it'll start this week.
Just wanna say before we do something with Anna, the strawpoll's still leaning toward making them rivals.
>>36538208God... damn it. that was not a poll. Here: http://strawpoll.me/3113566Poll is closed when I check it tomorrow.
>>36538208Nob that's a pastebin
>nob goes to bed>thread immediately dies
>>36539020Better start shitposting
>>36539037Nob's asleep, post wizards.
>>36539020Also has to do with the fact Sverd just got banned.
Wow, you guys have done a lot of work. I guess I should've expected that from what, 40 threads?So what do I have to do to get into the playtests? Also, are there magic rules anywhere? Making a crotchety old wizard like Merlin sounds fun.
>>36539113>making a crochety old wizard like Merlin sounds funYOU FOOL, YOU'VE DOOMED US ALLWhich is what I would say if Nob was online.Standard playtests hosted by Nob are over, so someone else would have to host one if you wanted to get in on that. Nob is starting up a regular campaign this upcoming week.>>36539176yeah, Sverd got reported over something and won't be unbanned till tomorrow. Also, be nice to the new guy just because he wasn't around for the Wizard Wars of threads 13-28.
>>36539113Someone's putting together a magic splat on IRC. The general mood of the thread is pretty much in favor of the protagonists having few, if any, magic power.
Hey just a question if anybody is still here, which sounds stronger?Spend a Will point. Choose an attribute and increase by half it's total. Round up if decimal. Ex: You have 10 Robustness, by using this Power and choosing Robustness, you get 15 Robustness.Spend a Will point. Choose two Powers. Their effects, but not their requisites, are doubled for the remainder of the turn.
>>36539405Forgot to mention both last for the remainder of the turn.
>>36539405First sounds good but a bit strong. Average player will use it on their highest stat, with a bonus of +6 on average.second sounds... blatantly overpowered.Average bonus is +10.
>>36539500>>36539405Let this not be said that the first cannot be used, just that it is slightly stronger than average for a power.The second has good intentions and is a fantastic idea, but stumbles a bit when it comes to how it actually plays out. with a bit of balance it could very well be useable.
>>36539500Okay how about this?Spend a Will point. Choose an attribute and increase by half it's total minus one. Round up if decimal. Min bonus is 2. Ex: You have 10 Robustness, by using this Power and choosing Robustness, you get 14 Robustness.Spend a Will point. Choose one Power. Their effects, but not their requisites, are doubled for the remainder of the turn.Just trying to make some mage-ish PC powers by making them lesser versions of the Villains' Powers.The other two.-Lesser White MageSpend a Will point. Heal 1d3 or 1d6/2, round up, Strikes on a chosen target. Undead take damage from this ability and take a -2 PH roll against it.-Lesser Black MageSpend a Will point. Cast/Shoot either a: R+X/2+I/2, Fireball that cause Burn, a Lightning Bolt that causes Stun, or an Ice Shard that causes -2 to Agility and Robustness. Goes up to 20m. R = Ranged, X = Mechanics/Occult, I = Intelligence.
>>36539662Forgot to mention this is more for on-a-roll tier characters.
>>36539662The powers look okay for now but clearly need some "no you cannot do this" wording.Lesser white Mage: ignoring the fact that magic in-setting is rarely so cut and dry because it doesn't matter, this power is a vastly inferior version of "I'm gonna need you to fill these" and undead aren't common enough for this to see much use: they're wicked in BALD MOUNTAIN and Britain, but good in China and the Spirit Lands. Needs a serious buff, especially as it heals only physical wounds.Black Mage: different kinds of mechanical effects are interesting. Actual attack method is a bit confusing. So if I'm reading this right, a super smart guy would roll 4+4/2 = 4+ 12/2=6 = +10 on a ranged attack? You'd be better off just shooting them in 80% of cases. Should honestly be intelligence straight down. Additionally, you're paying a heavy tax in that you need two skill points instead of one to increase your to-hit by one.Now, that being said balance-wise, generally flinging spells is not considered a very Disney-protagonist trait. If you renamed them you would get better reception here. Perhaps some form of alchemical solutions, which we have agreed is pretty Disney?dont read this as disdain, these are good ideas.
>>36537799Fountain of youth? Ancient Aztec secrets? It might be a way to fold in some of the RtED content. Basically a cache of stolen treasures.
>>36540129How about just Occult or Mechanics + Intelligence instead for Black Mage? Or just Intelligence? And I know it's not very Disney, but placeholder name.I meant for White Mage to just heal any Strikes, kinda like the Black Knight's power "It's Just a Flesh Wound!" But can be better or worse depending on the roll.How about this?-Lesser White MageSpend a Will point. Whether by song, prayer, or holy magic, the chosen target is healed of their wounds, mental or physical. Roll 1d3 for how many Strikes, Social or Physical, the target is healed for. Damages Undead.Perhaps the healing also causes a revival if the target is downed? Target would be revived with 0 Strikes remaining of course.Also what is "I'm gonna need you to fill these"? Because it's not in the Powers pastebin.>dont read this as disdain, these are good ideas.Thanks!
>>36537799>Disney owns Indiana Jones now....That means...The bad guy in Indiana Jones......Adolph Hitler.>A world where Hitler not only won WWII, but has the Arc of the Covenant and the Holy Grail>Invincible in battle>Immortal and AgelessNOBODY TELL /POL/ ABOUT THIS.
>>36540488I think occult or craft + intelligence would be good.Make Whit Mage 1d3+1.I'm gonna need you to fill these is a sensible class power that heals all of someones strikes on a successful science roll. Perhaps allowing white magic or whatever you want to call it at the end to hasten someones recovery after Defeat would be possible.>>36540505Nah, we're just using the crystal aliens :^)No but really we're time locked to 1920s at latest. Maybe later we'll get immortal hitler as a villain.
>>36540505And once we add Dreamworks content, it's also a world where the Jews were never allowed to escape from Egypt.
>>36540561>Perhaps allowing white magic or whatever you want to call it at the end to hasten someones recovery after Defeat would be possible.It's really late and I have no idea what you mean by this
>>36540585But if there are no Jews outside Egypt, there's nobody for the Nazis to holocaust. Without the whole genocide thing, Hitler suddenly seems almost reasonable, especially compared to the ancient evil magic that's all over the place.>Without the Jews to hate, Hitler is a hero, pushing back the forces of darkness with sacred artifacts gathered from across the world.Oh God, it's the /pol/ RPG, what have you done?
>>36540653>Hitler>Hero>ImplyingHe'd be an artist
>>36540637When Defeated (that is, you take a strike with none left) you are out of the battle and could have taken severe injuries. WM could mitigate that somehow.
>>36540814So a revive. Okay.-Lesser White MageSpend a Will point. Whether by song, prayer, or holy magic, the chosen target is healed of their wounds, mental or physical. Roll 1d3+1 for how many Strikes, Social or Physical, the target is healed for. If used on a downed unit they will be revived on your next turn. Damages Undead.-Lesser Black MageSpend a Will point. Through alchemy or technology, cast/shoot either a: I+X Fireball that cause Burn, a Lightning Bolt that causes Stun, or an Ice Shard that causes -2 to Agility and Robustness. X = Mechanics/Occult, I = Intelligence.Looks good?
Bump, hopefully the wizards and nazis haven't destroyed everyone yet.
>>36540653He'd probably just genocide someone else. Blaming another population for the ills of society is the idea. ...Maybe there is a beastman presence in germany?
>>36542454Come on man, don't be Hitler
We're still a ways from the bump limit, but I've taken the liberty of archiving the thread:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=Disney+Villains+VictoriousI would like to remind everyone who has enjoyed the work that we've been doing here to upvote our archived threads so as to keep them safe from Sup/tg/'s periodic archive purges.

>>36543831Because you can wound the gods as much as you like, but it won't actually kill them; that's written into Hades' statblock. Now the Titans, on the other hand....
>>36543831Well, those are mostly joke bosses I guessAlthough if we do include them you raise some valid points. I guess it's because Hades wasn't shown to be particularly robust in the movie?Also, the other kings have more than just one high stat, so making any of them go up to 30 would just be throwing shit out of possibility

Alright, so I was bored and decided to re-stat Elsa to see if people will stop bitching about it. Tell me what you think.Name: Elsa, the Ice QueenCountry of Origin: ArrendelleClass: Ice Sorceress/Snow Queen (Charming)Size: MediumSpecies: HumanTier: On-A-Roll~Hero (Not sure)---Attributes---[UNSTABLE]Robustness: 9Agility: 12Intelligence: 13Sensibility: 13Charm: 15[STABLE]Robustness: 9Agility: 12Intelligence: 16Sensibility: 16Charm: 18Strikes: 7 + X3 where X is the number of members in the partyWill: 5/5---Skills---Athletics: 7Ranged: 10Prevent Harm: 12Endure: 12Stealth: 9Persuasion: 9Intimidate: 7Academics: 8Science: 8Occult: 10Travel: 5Music: 5 (6)Craft: 7CONT.
>>36546151---Traits----Ice MagicThis unit can add its Occult score to attacks in order to deal Ice-type magical damage. All magical acts from this character count as Ice Magic. Characters struck by Ice Magic will suffer a -2 penalty to Prevent Harm (Does not stack).-Master of an ArmyThis unit can call in the territory’s Villains to aid in battle if they haven’t been defeated.-UnstableThis unit’s Charm, Intelligence and Sensibility are lower than their normal score. Any attack rolls made by this character while this trait is active obtain a +3 bonus. This trait becomes inactive once the character is defeated, or is reasoned with.-Frozen HeartThis unit’s heart is frozen in grief and despair. +5 against Social Strikes. Social Strikes count triple.-From the Heart This unit’s Magic is influenced by its emotional state. If under extreme positive emotions, +5 bonus to all acts of magic. If under extreme negative emotions or “Unstable”, make “Blizzard” passive.-QueenThis unit is a QUEEN. Is gets +10 to Persuade and/or Intimidate its servants to do anything if opposed in some way, and can automatically make them obey if nobody is trying to incite rebellion among them.---Powers----Create GolemSpend a Will Point.

If Passive, ignore the Will Point cost.-Ice ConjurationSpend a Will Point. Elsa can create a hazard or object made of ice or snow on the terrain. (Pillars of snow, an ice wall, stalactices & Stalagmites, etc). If “Blizzard” is active, ignore the Will Point cost. Elsa cannot use this more than once per turn.-Magic/Ice BoltThis unit can use Ranged or Melee to deal magical damage without the need of a weapon.
>>36546151>>36546172It seems to work to me.

>>36546151>Elsa>on a rollnigger are you retardedthis Elsa a shitone on wiki's better from stats to traits in crunch and fluff
>>36546151>>36546172There are some improvements here and a lot of downgrades. Some of these traits are pretty good but we should only merge the new ones into our existing Elsa. You made her even weaker than she already was by a pretty big amount, and that's the opposite of what we wanted
I'm >>36546521, looking at the new Elsa again- dude, you literally made her weaker than an average Villain. Again, we wanted to buff Elsa, not make her weaker in every field. There's some good trait ideas that aren't already on the wiki, but past that, there's nothing we should change the current model to. Also, she shouldn't have Master of an Army.
>>36546632>>36546521Aye aye then, fair enough. At least something good came out of that, I guessI still think that the only think she's got going for her is her magic, but this is a community project so alright, at least I got some nice traits in there.Are we keeping her strikes a solid number though? Many of the other kings have Number+ X Strikes>>36546462No need to be an asshole
>>36546151>>36546172Her strikes are too low, her prevent harm is literally on the level of most inner circles and minor villains, and her attack method is significantly less than the average non-combat character at +22.She needs a heavy series of buffs, but this statline could fit a minor ice magician.>>36544701I dunno, i don't like the fluff but the statline seems fine for like, magical items or something.>>36546725Generally, Kings aren't supposed to have under ~20 strikes base for a party of 3 unless they're supposed to be weak as fuck (I.E, Alameda Slim, Queen La, most joke Kings)
>>36546725Sverd had an entire monologue (not really but including) about why Elsa's ice magic isn't the only thing she had going for her. I'm sure if he wasn't currently banned he'd be here in about an hour to talk about 19th century absolutism some more.
>>36546787I know, I was there. I just don't buy it because Disney and Absolutism don't seem to fit to me.But hey, that's just me. I'll be quiet and work on shit I actually can understand
>>36546787Let's not derail the thread with debates on morality and customs of female Napoleonic monarchs and heirs again.What was Sverd even banned for? This is gonna be the first thread in like 20 he won't how up at like 4:30 sharp, that's weird.
>>36546787>Napoleonic era training in strategy, diplomacy and mate-finding>worth shit when you're driven to madness by grief>worth shit when there's a big muscular dude trying to stab you in the facePFFFFFT. Pick one and only one.
>>36546856>>36546839Quiet down you lot.>>36546842Sverd was banned for reasons unknown. The ban message wasn't very clear.
>>36546839>Disney and Absolutism don't seem to fit to mewhat the actual fuck am I readingDisney had some feudal Monarchs but Elsa is really obviously an Absolute monarch.
>>36546842>What was Sverd even banned for?Apparently he either reported a post that the mod liked, or stated that he saged or reported. It's like arresting someone for jaywalking, really.
>>36546856I feel like this is historically wrong, but I'm not Sverd.Also>mate finding>an heir apparentThat is definitely historically wrong as fuck.
>>36543103>34 Robustness>11+6x Strikes>Brawl 16>Prevent Harm 16
>>36546967It's got no ranged attack or means of socially fighting you. Just bait it with a fast boat with steaks on it and just keep shooting explosive harpoons into it. Problem solved.
>>36546992It's prevent harm is TN50.That's beyond superhuman acts.Jesus
>>36546967Some guys are put into an encounter so you can beat them. Some guys are put into an encounter because merely surviving them is a suitable challenge. This guy fits the second category. And yes, you do need a bigger boat.>>36546935Hasn't mate-finding been part of upper class education since forever? If not to find your own mate, if only to select a suitable mate for your offspring.
>>36547009Clearly we're not using enough explosives, then.How do we scale up explosives in the setting, anyway? it's not particularly disney to kill a boss via exploding the city block but knowing PCs in general it WILL happen.>>36547026Actually either your parents would select for you or whatever guardian you had would.
>>36547036>it's not particularly disney to kill a boss via exploding the city block>not having seen Mulan>implying killing Shan Yu with massive amounts of explosives wouldn't be perfectly Disney
>>36547036Shan Yu took a good chunk of the palace with him when he went out
>>36547054>>36547055Good point. Can't believe I missed that, given that Mulan is my favorite of the lot.So, what are the rules for Explosives? it's generally Prevent Harm TN20 to avoid getting hurt from an exploding stick of dynamite, so +1 for every additional stick/pound?
I am posting on my phone from work. Don't tell the mods.>>36547026Mate-finding was for the non-heirs that you weren't planning on giving to the church so they would catch better political marriages.The heir was supposed to learn how to rule and lead, but not seduce. Their marriage was, first of all, actually up to them and them alone, and secondly intended to produce viable children and secure more land for them. There are cases of a heir being trained to seduce or how to act with the opposite gender , but they are rare in general and nonexistent in Scandinavia.
>>36547086So, Hans was trained in mate-finding?
>>36547036Regents could not arrange marriages (even though a couple assholes like Mazarin did anyway), and typically the former regent would only arrange a marriage if it was massively beneficial, I.e. Ferdinand and Isabella. The heir was too valuable to marry to an outsider, usually.>>36547149Yep. His purpose as the gorrilionth child was to find a viable marriage and take power through it, since he was't church-bound. Anna was a perfect oppurtunity as an easily manipulated female second in line for the throne.
>>36547197>>36547149>>36547086>Hans' statblock>---Skills--->Mate-finding: 15>---Traits--->Prince Charming: +3 to Mate-finding at social functions>---Powers--->Bachelorette Radar: Reroll all Mate-finding checks and keep the better result.But seriously, would an absolute monarch's education not include "here's a list of things you should look for in a mate"?
Oh yeah. Strawpoll is closed, game will be held on Saturday at 7:00PM every week unless, you know, other events come up.I'll be taking 5 players based on totally logical selection procedures that aren't at all a popularity contest, but don't make a character ahead of time, you'll be making them all together this week and getting situated for the first adventure. Ideally you won't all be the same archetype, but who knows.
>>36547299Besides classical tales of Romance and all that jazz, heir's only knowledge of the sort would be how to not get trampled over and manipulated. Would probably have been useful for Anna. Besides noble, fertile and useful by power or action, they were generally left to their own. Most married for power anyway because they were greedy bastards though.
>>36547371Ah, so they didn't need an education in the matter when they knew it instinctively.>>36547359I call Strong Guy archetype.
>>36547371Fucking IPhone, that was barely coherent. I hate this thing. I'll be back in five hours when I'm unbanned, feel free to request songs or challenge my historical knowledge until then.
reminder there are 16 kings to stat until beta
>>36547299Hans should totally have seduction abilities against females of the group. Imagine the shenanigans.
>>36543831The difference is that when these guys run outta strikes, they're dead. Unless someone raises the remains there are no ifs, ands, or buts. Hades can never truly die as a god but existing in any plane other than Olympus or the Underworld makes him vulnerable.
Oh, yeah. Here's the actual join link for the campaign; https://app.roll20.net/join/601097/mEiDCAAnyone is free to spectate our games but only a handful (~5) will be playing. We will play weekly at 7:00PM EST and will be creating characters and doing some starting stuff this Saturday.Selection process will be based entirely on my personal opinion because honestly if I'm gonna run a game for 20+ sessions I'm gonna pick who I can cooperate with or at least haven't severely offended me. I'm a faggot, I know, but honestly none of you guys are personally super offensive so the chances of someone getting kicked out are low.
>>36547392But... I already had Hivan for that!
>>36547359Ill do something with nimble
>>36548724There is a spot to say what you want to be in the roll20 forum thing where you apply.
Let's talk about some kings then.who wants to stat Rourke?will he have atlantean crystal magic?
>>36549200I think Rourke should have a trait about always being prepared/never surprisedThat, and equipment for every situation. EVERY. SITUATION.
>>36549246>Schrodinger's Toolkit: Rourke has x+5 Equipment Points (x=players*5) that can be spent during his turn to represent items he already had hidden on his person.
>>36549403This is the man who brought anti-air weapon to an underground explorationSeems legit
>>36549472Not only anti-air weapons, but honest to god aircraft. To an undersea/underground expedition.
>>36549403>combat begins>rourke pulls a suit of +6 power armor out of his ass>then a +6 Atlantean Death Laser>then a fucking airplane >then, then a squad of robot soldiersCould be good.
>>36549472>>36549518I think it's a good alternative to giving him a ton of strikes. He's no tank, but you bet he'll be leading one.>>36549403Whoops forgot my name.
>>36549518>All the while he's still speaking in a perfectly civil tone like it's all just businessFund it
King-statting guy here, I'm gonna start Jafar up soonWould it be too OP to give him an ability to transform characters into other things/change their size and give them the appropriate bonuses/penalties?
>>36549749A: He's a king, he does what he wants.B: Facilier can already do it and he's a shit wizard.
>>36549771Yes, but not as a powerI mean Jafar literally pointing at one of the PCs and turning them into a cricket or a horse or what have you
>>36549806Sure. Make them test Sensibility or Robustness+Endure against, IDK, TN25-30 or they turn into an animal of his choice for d6 rounds.It's a standard attack type for him.
>>36549749Maybe make two stat setups for Jafar: one where he's Sultan Jafar (regular Jafar with a lot more training and items) and one where he's Sorcerer Jafar (THE MOST POWERFUL SORCERERRR IN THE WORLD).Alternatively, add in a note where, if he used his wish to enhance his powers, add +X to his stats and add the following abilities.
someone archive the thread and put up a new one?
Alright, holding off on Jafar until the next thread.Also, shouldn't somebody fix up Freeze? That sounds less like a dangerous power and more like something that'd make the game very boring
>>36549894I think we've decided that Sorcerer Jafar is the default, but if you want to make a Sultan Jafar, feel free.
