Disney Villains Victorious is a /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

I'm glad to see that these threads are still going. I wish everyone participating all the best while I recuperate a little. I hope to be able to participate in this thread after I recover from my burnout.
>>37835831It's limping on, somehow. Seems a lot of people lost interest at the ass end of last year. The bounce-back that was hoped for with the new year hasn't come, and it's already February. Yeah, you can chalk it up to classes starting up again, but this project's lost a lot of steam simply because a lot of the content creators sorta drifted off, both fluff and crunch.So I see this going three ways: it continues limping on and dies off, there's a resurgence, or the entire thing goes into hibernation until someone brings the project back after rebuilding everything from the ground up.
>>37836524That's an unfortunately good analysis there friend. I've been following the threads since the beginning, have contributed a number of fluff stories and have statted up a quite a few Kings, Villains and sample characters, but have experienced an incredible amount of creative burnout myself after the new year. I think that myself and god knows how many there are in the same boat, in that we'd like to contribute more but don't have it in us. Others, like you said, probably lost interest as the core game, DVV Classic was (mostly) completed.I don't want to see the threads and more importantly the idea die, but without more radical input of creativity, writing and art and the like, we're just going to keep the threads limping along as we have been. I would like to say that I'll fix the creative energy to fuel a resurgence in the project, but in starting to feel like we ought to preserve what we've done so far and to into hibernation, remerging later with a new, Gridlock-specific opening post. In the meantime however, I'll keep the threads bumped and contribute as I can.
>>37836524The main crunch guy pretty much said the work he has done on classic has burned him out completely and he's not really interested in the modern/future expansion. Also most of the people coming here are mostly interested in idle speculation rather than fleshing out what we already have.
>Snow Queen Elsa looks out over the flash-frozen mausoleum of Arendelle in forlorn bereavement as Ice Anna and Olaf try in vain to cheer her up.
I'll keep bumping till this evening, and see how everyone else feels about the project.
>>37836524It basically died when Nobody and Sverd both kinda vanished together, taking the vast majority of crunch and fluff with them respectively. Looking back at the threads, those two were almost single-handedly chalking up most of the project and keeping it on-track, accurate and alive respectively.
>>37839493They were both Names that were major contributors and personalities that all the Anons could rally around. They provided a lot of focus and drive and kept everyone on track.There is a lot more fluff and a lot more stories left in DVV, and a lot more that I would like to tell, but I'm just so tired and creatively spent right now that bumping the threads is about all I'm good for Ruhr now.
I'm still here...
SO, who is working on Leonidas and the Queen of Hearts?
>>37843594I said I was going to work on the Queen of Hearts, since nobody else seemed interested.Just make Leonidas as crappy Scar. Yes, I know the difference, but nobody has seen the film or is willing to stat him. The more important question is who the hell is working on Captain Hook.
>>37834678You know, what's the mechanical difference between Classic and Grid locked? Maybe there should be some system of hacking and programming. Also, I say we move onto gridlocked fully. Sure, the first setting is not 100% finished, But I believe if we relaunch ourselves into it, we might be able to drum up support
>>37846093>some system of hacking and programmingLinguistics (Binary)? Starting language for Programs?
>>37846154I was thinking more along a sort of minigame or challenge. Maybe a sort of puzzle or combat like scenario?
>>37834678came here for kinky princess jasmine cheesecakeam disappoint
>>37836524It's not that I've lost interest, but between classes and 40+ hours of work a week, I've got no time to help. Also, the fact that Gridlock has never really interested me, and that I haven't seen/don't have time to watch aren't helping either.
>>37848251>>37836524I haven't seen and don't have the time to watch more of the source material.
>>37847892I think we covered that quite a while back. Lurk more
>>37844290Ahem. Crappy Prince John.
>>37849948Which nobody has done either.
We should at least finish Classic and get a PDF out, then maybe ressurect the project later.
>>37851174All we're missing for the PDF is some adventure ideas, a bit of art, and an actual PDF-maker.>>37839493Pretty much this: >>37836694I can't really promise that I'll be able to actually give Gridlocked the effort it needs, and I'm just... tired of arguments about game creation.Running the playtest game takes more time and effort than I thought, too.
King: David Xanatos.David Xanatos is the CEO of Xanatos Enterprises. Xanatos is most notable for being a master planner. He knows every variable and probability, an act which has only been helped by the massive surveillance of his territory. He watches everyone and knows about everyone in the city. He is also a very good fighter with knowledge of many martial arts. He also does not reject the use of magic and is immortal via it's use. He is a very smooth negotiator and can be very persuasive.Land: Xanatos Enterprises.Xanatos Enterprises is the company that currently dominates moat of New England. The locals are constantly watched and monitored by Xanatos to better aid in his plans and everything in the country is produced by his company. One other way that Xanatos Enterprises is different from many other factions is that it does not shy away from the use of magic. Many Xanatos products use magic. You can't go through a day without using a Xanatos product and almost all of said products have surveillance of some kind. Xanatos Enterprises is currently in association with Bill Syke's crime empire and both are expecting betrayal at some point. The Gargoyle Demora is still around and she does not entirely trust Xanatos nor does he trust her. They are also both expecting betrayal.Rule: Just As Planned.As mentioned, Xanatos thinks of everyone as pawns in his plan. The only people he truly sees as people are his wife and children. Everyone else s a tool for his advancement. He does not mind people who enter his country as long as they fallow the rules. However, if they show that the want to overthrow him, he will immediately make a plan to make sure he wins, regardless of what they do.
just to clarify what is the Rundown on the Charsheet for?
>>37855530Generic information and background for your character.
Has anyone seen our friendly neighbourhood drawfriend in the last five threads?
so ve are joost putting ze projekt on standby zen? oh vell it hass been a gut run, auf veidersen mein freunden, you vill know vere i vill be ven ve need toshake off ze tarpaulin
>>37860779I just want to finish the last two essential villains (Queen of Hearts and Captain Hook) before we put this project in hypersleep. I've just been real drained the past week. I'm finishing the Queen of Hearts tonight for sure.
>>37860873I'd suggest, if you are going to do it, make Hook a Nimble/Charming King
>>37860873I'm staying around.
>>37860779I'm still here, kindasortamaybe. New job and a bunch of other stuff taking up a lot of time, even if it is a cool opportunity. Without a dedicated crunch guy to finish up the last bits of the real crunch, the project has been pretty much limping along, sadly.>>37839493That's flattering, but it was mainly Nobody who did all the important stuff. I just provided background fluff, motivation, and kept our main fluff accurate, plausible and entertaining.
>>37862167you also laid the groundwork for one of our most solid sample characters though

>>37866360Nice job. I really wish I could do more to help, but I don't know much of the source material for a lot of the stuff
I've been on this board for a while now, but I had never had much interest in this thread until recently, when the modern stuff began to pop up. It's a shame that it seems to be dying just as it's getting to the good part..
>>37874145It's a real shame, I agree.
Going to post what I have for Captain Hook in an hour. If you guys could brainstorm powers for him, it would be great.
>>37879280something based on "FOR I AM A PIRATE KING !"could work as a mook/lackey summon tied into his antivillain ( lesser of two evils) song
>>37879922Wait, isn't Davy Jones the Pirate King? They could be having a pirate civil war.
>>37880266Yeah Ole Squidfeatures was never a fan of Pirates of Pensance also Hook is another King entirely
>>37880303I knew they were different Kings, but I don't think it was ever clarified what their relationship is. Enemies? Rivals? Allies of convenience?I guess if Hook is keeping the pixie dust for himself, then that means Davy Jones still sails the seas because of Calypso's protection. Maybe.
>>37880364well according to relations map they are hostile towards each other, make of that what you will
>>37880453If you still have that map, can you repost it here?
>>37880364Davy Jones and Hook are the main ones, we also have four minor pirate kings "ruling" over the other seas in defiance of Ursula and namely aligned with Hook. I remember one of them was Jack the Monkey from the Pirates of the Carribean movies. The others are sketchy but I recall them being a mad gipsy cat lady, a saracen corsair obsessed with bling and a fallen priest.
>>37880588I meant the relations map, but this saves me going back and forth between tabs.>>37880571You forgot Captain Nemo.
>>37880614ah Nemo that's right he was the one with this if I recall
>>37880673I prefered this design, honestly.

>>37880766howsabout we make it a bit of both with some features of the original sub used by the expeditionthat said can anyone think of a quest layout for Atlantis, Helping Moleirre find his youngest son ( think a human version of Feivel Mousekewitz [pic related]) who wandered off for example
>>37880869His son had commandeered a digging tank and accidentally uncovered an Atlantean rebel group that was planning a coup against Rourke. The party needs to reach the surface with the boy and the information needed to take this group to justice.The catch is that the rebel group is made up of Atlantean refugees that were tired of being treated as second class citizens after escaping the hells they came from. This group wasn't planning anything evil per say, but any sort of treason against the Imperial President is not to be tolerated.
>>37880996so you've got two options as a party: hand them over to Judicial enforcer Ak'edd, which will increase your diplomacy benefits when dealing with Rourke or you can let them be which will decrease your chance of good relations with Rourke but keep the People happy, Mole is just happy you found his son (It could have been worse, the Coachman could have spirited his son away) At some point Ursula is Going to send Yamato up along the top of Russia under the Arctic ice shelf to attack Atlantis, your gonna need to pull some strings there which will depend on how well you are liked by both the people and Rourke
>>37881302Speaking of the Coachman, I can stat him when I get back from work. Anybody else we really need to get done?
We need more votes on Suptg to counter our downvotes.
>>37881959I thought you'd never ask.
>>37866360Shouldn't she at least count as a villain? On the other hand her Card Guards will be enough, she wasn't much of a fighter either.
>>37880854So is the croc that took his shit dead? If not I'm sure we can put in a power that risk summoning it.
>>37884552Maybe make it so there is a chance it will turn on him to finish the job.
So what's the veredict for the project continuing? I haven't been here a lot ever since new years, but it just seems like the Gridlocked Expansion is not going to be churned out here. People are too burned outWe have Classic done, though, right? think that for now we should just wrap it it in a nice PDF and keep the page and memories in our heads. Then later in the year, come back to these threads. Maybe start the discussion again at around the same time the first one started off?I think plenty was done and the contributors earned some more peace
>>37886533I'm staying and i'll keep the project on life support.
>>37886533I'll be here. Idk how much I can contribute, but I'll be here.
I can do another story or something maybe, though I'm limiting how much I do so people don't get sick of it.
>>37891364I have a request. Something involving Alice living on The Spirit of Adventure and interacting with the Huntsmen.
>>37885616I said RISK summoning it, that obviously implies it's after him in the first place.
>>37884461She is a Villain. I just didn't bother adding the Villain Trait.>>37884552>>37885616The crocodile isn't dead. Hook is just paranoid because even though his ship doesn't touch the water anymore, he just KNOWS that monster is still following him. The croc would cross rivers and oceans to finish it's meal.Maybe Ursula uses it to spy on the old codfish.
bump with spirit ideas for Hunnic chinathere are 60 of the most powerful spirits in the Land (5 iterations of each animal [Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, DogPig], 12 iterations of each element [fire, water, earth, metal, wood]) I'd suggest that we base the people who embody these spirits on the four trines [Rat/Dragon/Monkey, Ox/Snake/Rooster,Tiger/Horse/Dog, Rabbit/Goat/Pig] with each group of three embodying one of the four temperaments-ish [choleric, melancholic, sanguine and phlegmatic respectively]
>>37891443Alright, I'll think of something in the next few days.
>>37895692any thoughts on my idea for the spirits?>>37894964
>>37895711It's an interesting idea, though I'm not sure how well it would translate to the game statting out 60 different animal spirits.
>>37895763I should have clarified that there are only twelve of them and that their element affects their outward appearance and blessings, there's also my idea for basing the 12 spirit champions on the Four zodiac trines
I've thought about the backstory for the Weasels and come up with a general idea of how they acquired each of their skills and who from;>The Fae Lands: were uplifted to humanoid form by a Fae lord of the Autumn Court for his amusement (think younger Radagast the Brown, for an idea of the Lords appearance), gained the ability to blend into the shadows of twilight and move with the grace of a cat.>The Mirror Kingdom: were drafted into the Mirrorguard Auxillia on pain of Nails, gained the ability to swap places with their reflections and move through mirrors>the Archdioceses: learned from the people leading the gypsy rebellions how to hide and appear to be gargoyles they currently take up residence in the Pleasure Island hall of mirrors, which due to the Fae influences on them has started to look like an autumnal forest
>do nothing all week>not even yesterday, when I was dicking around on 4chan for 5 hours straight when I was "working" at my placementFuck it, I guess I'm going to step up my game again. Today's to-do list includes King Leonidas and Prince John. Stromboli and Monstro are up on the wiki now, under "Pleasure Island" and "Leviathan Kings". I'd like to remind everyone that there are other 'Leviathan Kings': The Kraken, the Moasaur from Fantasia, Ceto (pic related) and some other ones I can't remember.
>>37899249don' forget the weasels Knight, made a thing for them to explain how they got where they are and what they can do>>37899224
>>37899293Would their size not put them under the employ of Ratigan? They certainly live up to his hiring standards.
>>37899692Ahem they were turned into humans buy the Fae lord of the autumn, but they can revert to weasel form if necessary, and yes they do work for ratigan already, The coachman doesn't know that
Yep, this thread is staying alive!
>>37899753Hm, I must've missed quite a few brainstorming sessions. Anyhow, Leonidas is done, John shouldn't take much longer, and then it's time for Jojo.
>>37900124Dude I was just about to post what would make a great Mirror Kingdom Villain. It's like we're a JoJo hive mind.

>>37900595Since Hol Horse and J Gail are assassins, that gives them an excuse to be used just about anywhere.
>>37900552You know, could one theoretically help King John back to the throne? Perhaps in a bleaker world, where Arthur is dead, the only way to combat the Horned Kings influence is with another king of england, via the KLR. Since he is technically a king, the land around him returns to a somewhat normal state, removing the fog and making undead take longer to Return, but have it disappear when the HK exerts his personal presence nearby. Along the way, you could possibly help reform king John as you make your way, and have him actually sign the Magna Carta of his own free will.
>>37900750That's a great idea.
>>37900750It would certainly be something to consider
>>37900750Ideally, you'd want Richard over John, but since when does anything in DVV go ideally?
>>37900964I would assume Richard would be dead as can be. I mean, he decided to go through both Arcodeises and faelands JUST to fight against Jafar himself in a crusade. He ain't getting far

>>37903326You do know that 7 in an Attribute is human standard, right? Those stats could use some reorganizing so that they at least have Attributes along those lines.
>>37903326Now that I think about it I have the Perfect power for Punch:>Right Back At Ya(!): buy burning a will point and destroying a mook level enemy punch may make a Robustness+Ranged attack against a player of his choice
>>37903463You do realize these are the Cybrid forms taken by the villains, right? their traits are more balanced when they are disguised (but Punch is still Einstein compared to drachenbug)
>>37903593Yes, but wouldn't they become stronger when they transform instead of weaker? A 3 in anything is considered pitiful.
>>37903734Hackbug Roots himself into the games code and takes control of any available characters, this makes him part of the scenery and very hard to get rid of, but I see what you mean about Grid and TerrorTerrorRobustness: 6/14Agility: 17/14Intelligence: 12/14Sensibility: 7/14Charm: 18/14GridRobustness: 7/14Agility: 12/14Intelligence: 17/14Sensibility: 18/14Charm: 5/14I've modified their stats a bit, but I'm keeping Punches Intelligence and Sensibility low for two reasons;1. He ate Kirby, son he basically has the mind of a small child under all that muscle2. the Yellow Devil wasn't a tactical genius to begin withthat said;PunchRobustness: 18/14 Agility: 17/14Intelligence: 5/14Sensibility: 3/14Charm: 6/14there he's not very charming when he's trying to chew your face off
>>37903901I counted all of their attributes. Let's just say 60 is the target number.Terror Bug Total: 60This works.Grid Bug Total: 59You can add another point to him, preferably to Charm.Punch Bug Total: 49I would add those to Sensitivity. It refers to being able to respond to outside stimulus, after all. Like a sense of taste.Hack Bug Total: 55More Agility. Hacking requires dexterous movement to not get caught, after all.Drachen Bug Total: 55 (Found last thread)Not sure. Also, I Bring the Thunda might be too much. 2d6 attacks of opportunity sounds excessive.After this, I can start pitching powers and traits.

>>37905097Grid Bug's star skills would be decepticon, brawl and lore skills.
>>37905191have you got anything I can use for Hack?
>>37905287What exactly does he do? A description or backstory would be useful.
>>37905333The basic premise is that he breaks into a game and forces it to play the way King Turbug wants it to, no /\ /\ \/ \/ <> <> A B Start for this guy, he just forces entry to the code room and makes 'changes', he can also infect Characters from the game and track/control them remotely
>>37905501Wouldn't he have the same role as an infiltrator like Grid Bug? I know they have slightly different goals (one subverts games, one subverts the internet) but the goals are similar. Looking at their stats, Hack Bug would probably be better at Grid Bug's job because of his high Charm score.Idea: Switch around their sheets, making Grid Charming and Hack Agile. Hack Bug's gimmick is that he sneaks around games and manipulates the area around him to become more hazardous for players. Also, Hack Bug should hand out status defects like candy. Everyone loves status defects.

>>37905834Grid Bug would have to be Charming for his social skills.Not sure what Hack Bug would be, but probably Sensitive/Agile. Maybe he would have a Power to hack digital worlds with Insight to detect weaknesses in code or something.As a justification to explain why these Villains aren't mindless Cybugs, say that King Candy had them made them as Bosses so that they would be great at their jobs separate from the hive. The drawback is that they cannot randomly absorb traits from other characters and spread them around willy nilly like normal Cybugs.
>>37905981this kind of falls down when you take into account the fact that Drachenbugs brain would, in the words of Hack "Make a PicoBit look ungainly by comparison"
>>37906051The idea is that you don't want them to be normal Cybugs, or else their boss traits would be passed down to Cybug Mooks. You don't want an army of Drachenbugs, do you?Alternately, they can copy traits (as seen in Gridbug's disguises), but they cannot spread them to the horde. Drachenbug can still consume creatures to recover Strikes (why isnt that on his sheet?) but they will not have their traits absorbed into him. Even if a fix all solution can't be found, it's better to have a balanced villain than an OP one.
>>37900586Dammit that reminds me of this song...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_TbgMUx9OA
Made a modified version of Drachenbug. It's fairly different from your version, so I might end up renaming this Tyrannosaurs the Tank Engine or something.DrachenbugRole: Robust/Agile GuyClass: Boss MonsterSize: GiganticSpecies: Cybug---Attributes---Robustness: 17/16Agility: 18/14Intelligence: 5/14Sensibility: 12/14Charm: 3/14Will: 3/3Strikes: 8+X2, where X is number of party members.---Skills---Acrobatics: 8Athletics: 7Intimidate: 7Brawl: 8Prevent Harm: 9Endure: 7---Traits---Bull Charge: +2 to Brawl when charging into combat.Natural Weapons: Spikes and Sharp Teeth provide a +2 to Brawl when used.Bonecruncher: Ignores Armor on Brawl rolls.CHOO CHOO: Double maximum land speed.---Powers---Devourer: By spending a Will point, this character may eat any defeated animal of Medium size or higher and regain strikes equal to that animal’s Robustness divided by 3 (rounded up).Bring the Thunder: Spend one Will point. Drachenbug lights up, charging up with electrical energy. It’s next target is treated as having -3 Prevent Harm while defending and will be Stunned afterwards.Rundown: The end result of a specialized Cybug being left in a Train Simulator for 24 hours. It will eat anything and everything to regain the calories it loses while moving. They say it’s roar is similar to the tooting of a horn.
Anyone still here?
The next playtest session will be starting any moment now. Let's see who we can take down today.
Wow, the thread is still going. Props to everyone who's sticking around.If I could put in my two cents about the continuation of the threads, I think we've had a good run. I intended to write more DTP, but I'm kinda burned out right now.I don't think we should feel bad about the thread winding down. We've finished the core setting save for the pdf. Just look back at all the work we've done. It's been a fucking fantastic run with you all. We've got a fully functional game up from nothing, which is more than most of /tg/ can say.I'm going to lay down the name. I can't promise that I won't drop in every now and then, but from now on I'm gonna stay anonymous. Farewell, gentlemen. It's been a pleasure
>>37913262wow, even in my farewell speech, I forget to put in my name.
>>37913262Goodbye Dread. You will be remembered as the one who get /tg/ of their ass for Kingdom Hearts non retarded plot edition.
>>37913262Good luck to you in your future endeavors. This was the first major /tg/ project I've ever been a part of. I've been here since thread 1, had a name, and got a good system out of it.Fun times.
>>37907019why do I picture this guy having legs like Metal Gear Rex?
brit bump with King Candy's reaction to Drachen>"well thith wath unexpected, uh hu hu"
gonna bump now
Keep up the good work ladies and gents.

>>37931532Uh, ya think?
>>37932007yes, I do and I, for one, am quite happy with how he turned out. not that I'm implying you're obtuse or anything, Because I'm not
