as per usual when it comes to game over new start! Except this time more war focused, large scale, and carefullly selected potential for awesome shenanigans as was requested over time.Sorry it took awhile but I had to develop shit for this.Anyway now time for some the usual slow ass starting and generation.Ah classic.First to five wins unless there is a major swing around.
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>38675307So here is the questionaire of whom you need to answer twice separately and YES you can repeated the same options.>Republic>Coalition>Houses>Independent>OtherFollowed by>Poverty>Poor>Middle>Rich>Filthy Richand>High>Apprentice>Academy>Trade>FreeQuestions need to be determined this time around.Character generation is encouraged but not required. You may select two from each column and yes you can select the same thing twice.
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>38675394Each has its own perks and penalties so watch out even if it would appear something is obviously the better choice...So there is my warning.
>>38675307>From Last ThreadI vote>Two MC's one male one female>Nation: Combine>Origin: Academy>Initial Status: PovertyWe've come a long damn way from a couple of street rats to Admirals of the Fleet, but through toil, tears, sweat, and blood we've rose through the Combine Caste system and made it this far and like everything else we'll go farther and take what we need when we need.Because when you're broke as hell, you learn how to bring food to the table and the table itself real quick. And you learn how to deal with people who try to take that bread away from you.
>>38675307>robots, run by AI JAI, that sucessfuly overthrew their human oppressors.... And now have nothing better to do than cause space mischief
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>38675414Thats the spirit!Though you didn't need the first part as that has already been determined.>>38675420Hush now that comes later.
>>38675414Ah wait.The female will be>Nation: Combine>Origin: Academy>Initial Status: PovertyThe male will be>Nation: Combine>Origin: High>Initial Status: Filthy RichWhere as she was the street rat who fought and bled her way to this place, he was handed it out of a silver spoon and expected to brain his way through the academy, which he did with remarkable success. Chalk it up to someone of his family to be exceptionally good at politics and intrigue, even for a real short and quiet guy, although he always lagged behind physically.

Rolled 60 (1d100)>>38675803Its war mode so it wont be really civ as you are used to it.and no they don't have to.
>>38675853Sorry, I meant hero not civ. But alright.
>>38675307So what happened with last game over?
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>38675934players opened Rift and kicked everyone's shit in, but faction was wiped.

Rolled 36 (1d100)>>38676109In that case be warned I run the hardest civs while working on my system which I have already mostly revealed.In terms of difficulty combine dorf fort + Dark Souls.So remember losing is FUN!This time its admittedly different as i am aiming to test out the War mechanics in depth. This time its unusual as I am changing a lot of stuff around that I have been prepping for awhile now.Mostly based off requests and what I need to test out. Combined with a special blend to make it all possible.Basically though you get so many actions that you need to determine per a turn. You use these actions to try and survive for as long as possible.
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>38676194tfw when laptop is useless piece of shit that keeps dying and rebooting over halfway through my work.Goddamn it.Anyway anything I am missing on dice mechanics? I did give the near complete spill on stat sheet.meanwhile gonna count da votes.
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>38675461Ahem...LOCKED.Required 5 votes acquired.Refunding boons...how would you like to spend them?Fate points have officially carried over.Ahem now for round two of votes.CHOOSE>Advanced Academy>Supreme Schooling>Special Trade>Super Skill>Free>University>Trade>Academy>FreeThis time you may only choose one from each!Fluff has also been accepted so enjoy a cookie(fatepoint).

Rolled 97 (1d100)>>38676403Vote
>>38676336Question again, are these for both our heroes? Or is one option for one and the other for the second?I also vote the female gets the super skill for combat and the male gets the academy for fleet control
>>38676473Welcome aboard. The lube for you future ass fucking it to your left.NEVER delete a rollDo you use skype? We keep a chat going there for civ discussion between game days
Rolled 21 (1d100)>>38676602Top is girl bottom is guy.So its separate if you had chosen the same secondaries they would be the same.On the plus side your guy is no longer a completely skill less. Your girl on the other hand is rocking in maximum SKILL.
>>38676360How manny boons are refunded? I vote some are used to give us the smooze from last civ.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>38676665half of the boons has been added onto the tab.Current remaining boons from last civ are required to be spent or forever lost(they wont be added onto your tab).Fate points have carried over.
Rolled 51 (1d100)>>38676360Ahem so current votes are as follows:4 Super Skill3 Academy1 TradeAnd remember fluff is at its most potent during creation(also when its at its hardest so there go)!
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>38676716Be warned the only thing Super Skill does it puts her through special training(aka spec ops) so everything else WILL suffer.In exchange she gains some supreme skills but everything else WILL suffer.IN her case the odds are her special skill training will focus onto two traits, but that will be rolled for. heh.Basically Super Skill training is psuedo spec ops.
>>38676647Nope, but I don't mind getting it once my shift is over. On phone now, so it will be a while.
>>38676747Ah so it's not like we can choose it? I was expecting that we could like have a super good fleet officer or so with this?
>>38676688>Current remaining boons from last civ are required to be spent or forever lost(they wont be added onto your tab).What can we use the boons on?
>>38676688Wait. Only half the unused boons from last civ got carryed over? Or is it half the refund boons got added to the tab?
Rolled 98 (1d100)>>38676784Its rolled for.If you had chosen someone else besides coalition/combine you would of gotten to choose.In exchange though they gain certain bonuses...which reminds me.Faction Choice CombineAcquired the following affectIncreased Difficulty ThresholdIncreased SuccessMeanwhile while things are harder IF you accomplish it the effects will be better.Academy chosenAcquired military skills.Acquired no assets but greatly increased skills.High chosen.Acquired basic skill increases.Filthy rich chosen acquired increased assets but severely stunted skills.As for her being a good fleet officer...well sorta.Suffice it to say bitch got some serious goddamn skills at this rate.>>38676828Half of refunded boons are placed into tab.Meanwhile last civ boons MUST be consumed.Fatepoints carry over without penalty but you don't get the used ones back.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>38676840As in she has MAXIMUM starter skills PLUS the academy skills.If you go through with the super skills while random...they DO get special bonuses that other factions wouldn't have the option for.At this rate if you go through with it she will have some goddamn nightmare tier skill.
>>38676840I still don't get it. Can you just list what boons need to be spent nowAnd what boons are in the tab.From what I'm getting is that have the boons that we did not use last civ is gone. That would be bull if that is the case.
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>38676886All the SURVIVING boons have to be consumed.half of SPENT boons worth has been added onto the tab.and no hell no.
>>38676911All super boons huh? That leaves us with 2About about, what, we got refunded 2 so we should have about exactly 4 Normal Boons and 1 Greater Thread survival boon.We should also have 50$ dollars left on the tab before the half.An an assortment of artboons, picboons, and otherwise.Half of the spent boons would be 750$So we have to spend all our Super Boons now?
>>38676840More randomness the merrier I guess then. Increased difficulty sounds ominous in the context of DF and DS :P
>>38676911I'm too tired to make sense of this. Just give me a list of what needs to be used and I'll find use for them.
>>38676911>>38676995Have to agree with causality, this boon thing is quite confusing.
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>38676911date: 1 Year before official choosing period.Location: Combine Speech before human assembly at Middle Educational Facility.After speech Combine official went down hoping that the speech would encourage youth to enlist under the Combine. Superiors have been riding his ass due to the lack of humans in Combine forces.You would THINK if they wanted more of them they wouldn't kill or piss so many of them off. Humans due to this are a tiny part of Coalition.But NOO still have to manage it because of how incredibly valuable human lifeforms are for war duties...goddamn assholes can't make up their bloody minds.While deep in thought noticed young human lifeform standing in the hallway...waiting for him....hm should not be possible unless oh this one listened it. Well lets check it out."You seemed to have listened in and yet not escaped. You were not meant to listen to speech.""I have a question."Hm...ignoring comment but fine we'll ask again after. "What is it?">>38676995If its been used half its value goes to tab. Otherwise it needs to be used up.>>38676974Only the surviving ones...
Rolled 26 (1d100)>>38677036if boon is yet to be used up it needs to be.If it has been you get a refund for half its power onto the tab.>>38677072and so the official is astounded by this young human who asks about early enlistment."Why?"She then explains about her brief hard life and she agrees with the Combine. Knows her only chance out of this hellhole is the Combine."hm...heh I like you girl but you still have to wait till the choosing." and she is devastated surprisingly adorable. I will however offer a recommendation and my backing." There she goes perking up and now its time to go.Still to fine such an interesting specimen...it will be interesting to see how it pans out. IF she survives to reach the choosing anyway.Choose Past>Taken>Offering>Refuge>Rogue>Outcast--------Meanwhile a young filthy rich male youth makes plans despite small size. Family wishes him to enlist in Combine but they value stuff he does not yet have...so he makes plans.He will acquire the basic skills needed that his lifestyle did not have him acquire but everyone else does. Hopefully during this time his parents will give up on him so he can make other choice.While delaying matters...he can continue to plot and plan. Combine is a complex affair after all...Choose>Exiled House>Profiteer>Loyalist>Turncoat>Arisen
>>38677204>>38676870I vote Super Skill and Academy
>>38677204Genie clarify outcast, does it mean she is universally reviled?As for the male, I vote Loyalist. He's here because his family has served for generations and he is expected to be here.
>>38677276Seconding this vote.
>>38677204Also what species are our Heroes?>Taken>Offering>Refuge>Rogue>OutcastCan you give at least a brief description on these and basic pro's and con's so we know which one best fits the fluff?

>>38677377One of those skills is sexual. I just know it. Probably for info gathering. She will fuck the intel out of you.
>>38677377Hmmm.What would best fit an orphan girl with no history of her past who aspired to get out of the gutters and child slavers and fought, scraped, and bled her way to get up the ladder and not let anyone in her way?I gather Taken means she's been abducted from somewhere elseNot sure about the rest
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>38677422She is actually becoming really sorta scary...as in she was considered one the best to ever to come out of Supreme Skill skill training regimen.She is a fucking poster child of it. Normally your suppose to pick up one or two skills usually.She walked away with 7. SEVEN.and its less seduction and more along the lines of the terrible TERRIBLE things she will do to you...seduction training of such scale is only available to other factions so she don't got it still.
>>386773772x Advanced Academy
>>38677377Advanced Academy for the Girl for. Debating what the guy should be.>>38677422Hmm. I see her as an orphan girl determined to get away from the mud and grime of the gutters by tooth and nail and any means possible.Not sure whether she sold her body just to climb another inch to the top, or whether she specifically fought off and bled to keep her dignity and overcome those who would exploit her/her body
>>38677377>>38677499Genie, who would be a better fleet commander?Someone who went to an academy to train to control fleetsOr someone who went to a school for it?
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>38677499Poor bastards in the training don't know what the hell happened or what hit them when she came through...2 is usually considered the top and is hard as hell to achieve. Very rare for one to pass the 2 threshold...and usually that is just another skill or two tops.Then she happened...Combine officials practically cream their pants and have a heart attack whenever they see her dossier or stat sheets.Normally its just their pants on that sort of thing.Despite her complete lack of standing she is now considered VERY valuable asset of the Combine.
>>38677591>>38677582Can I get an answer pls? Otherwise I'll just pick a number and guess
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>38677582Is training or schooling better?
>>38677642Good point. Practical is better than theoretical.Hmm, in that case I vote Advanced Academy too.
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>386772762 rogue1 Taken2 profiteer1 Advanced Academy2 2 Advanced Academy
>>38677641To be frank, with the DF+DS reference, most stuff is pure guessing at this point.It's not like OP has given us any input on what our choices will bring. At the end of the day, if the starter does not look like something you don't like, tell OP and then ditch the quest.Voting with your feet is always the right way to go.
>>38677722>does not look like something you don't likeI can't into double negatives.
>>38677722>Ditch a genie questNigga I been doing this for a year and I ain't missed a single one

Turned out once you could get over their distasteful nature...there was an awful lot of opportunity.>>38678097You just have to spend the boons during the lifepath after that all former boons unspent will be lost.
>>38678128Definitely Supreme Academy for the Girl.Also darnit I didn't realize Profiteer was about his family and not himself. Is it too late to request a switch to loyailst?I saw him and his family as being combine nobility for generations
>>38678128>>38678175Also the girl was supposed to be an orphan as opposed to a runaway, I imagine that would have been Refugee.Darned hindisght!
>>38678128Okay, I'm debating.Can you be specific on what we can spend the super boons on?Does it have to be personality, or can it be ships in the fleet?

>>38678319That seems a bit to cliche, but I guess I will be down for backing it
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>38678416wow there is gonna be a ton of early day and combine time...Good thing we can switch between the two MCs.Also during early(schooling/training) days you have the option of using your last Civ's boons without penalty.Its only when it ends that they are considered lost if they haven't been spent!
>>38678441>>38678416Hmmm, yeah. A little cliche.
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>38678416Well at least my guess was close...>>38678492Who says it was then that they met?Due to astounding results during her special training with her later academy days they gave her a ton of free time because of it. It would of been a waste of time so instead she also took colleges at a nearby university instead to compensate.The Combine allowed for it and even shelled out with lesser penalties attached. So technically they could of met during his uni days.
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>38678571So during that time period she was actually duelly enrolled.Naturally this caused some problems and certain people tried to pick a fight only to get their asses handed to them on a silver platter.She IS after all a top pick for Combine Operations Division.So yeah that didn't end so well for em...
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>386781751 Supreme Academy female.1 enlistment1 doc3 2 Supreme Academy

Rolled 45 (1d100)>>38678814Both of the Apprenticeships are 'special' by the way. Normally its a temp choice but if you choose things right you get the option over again and possibly unlock stuff within it.However you can only take Apprenticeship the one time.Program meanwhile...well your gonna have to see that for yourselves heh.
>>38678846What is apprenticeship about?
>>38678486>>38678846>Its only when it ends that they are considered lost if they haven't been spent!Oh shit we have to spend all our last civ boons NOW!? or they are GONE?It has to be in character creation right now?
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>38678911No not this time.It will be extended to include the training/schooling.Over which there will be large time skips and shifting between perspectives.
>>38678943Okay, tell us when we MUST spend our boons.Those include just the supers or all carry overs?
>>38678846Aprenticeship for the GirlSpecialist Operations for the Guy

>>38679507I can dig itCan it also make them finish at around early 20s but with full learning experience?
>>38679550>...sureI'm betting that's a sign this isn't a wortwhile investement is it?Also if they have rejuvenating tech, there isn't such a strong need to make them train too fast
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>38679550...sure.Is it a poor choice to spend the supers on these?
>>38679580>>38679618A Major Boon might suffice for this.
>>38679550So this is a civ quest with more thought put into it?What is the purpose of the selection? Is it for a character, the civilization, or both?How do boons work?What happens if i pick Magi/Magi?Sorry about all the questions also. Im asking because i wouldnt mind running another spess quest for myself and i like this set up. Also this seems pretty cool. Still semi new to this whole quest thing and how to properly run it.
>>38679692It's technically not a civ quest, this iteration is going to be different. It's a fleet command quest.The selection is for our dual MC protagonists. The Civ has been handled by Genie as this is going to be an explicitly war game.Boons make things better (actions mostly) and bigger things make better effects (Super Boon the biggest)We have a lot of boons left over and have to use them soon.Magi. . .uh, never did get the hang of magi. No mater how many magical units we had.
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>38679692woah now there is a difference between Civs and Quests anon.I specialize in Civ running.I have entire rulebook for it half of which I have revealed open source.Selection is for MCs as this is gonna be war focused compared to the previous installments.Boons are granted by times for when i fuck up or the players make a nice offering like say a good fitting pic or even art!Fatepoints are meant to be insurance for the players.It might be a waste or you get double the training for it.>>38679618Not really your breaking the limitation on it by doing so allowing you to double up on it.So it would depend on your opinion.>>38679580well it depends anon.
>>38679825Okay, one super boon will cover it right? As well as giving leftovers to boost the girls training.I vote the one Super Boon on Mastermind/Science! for the guy and the girl trains entirely in Martial
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>38679918Just the one right? And helps both their training?Vote
>>38679825>Good fitting pic or artWas literally just about to do that in my quest(anon posted some gud arts)Anyway thank you very much. Ill stick around and roll and chat but for now i must update my quest. Ciao!>End then the tripfag left. Happy ending.
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>38679692>>38679825So yes it is a civ quest with a lot of thought put into it.Despite the overwhelming difficulty.For quest running your gonna wanna decide the type of dice you want and the pool.Determine if you want to use crits or not if you Do use crits make sure its not on a smaller die due to /tg/ dice effects.Determine if your gonna need a crude stat sheet or not.Currently I have stat sheets available for units but they give me nightmares. My civ stat sheets are much nicer and cleaner while being so goddamn simple.I also have determined terrain affects and more importantly cracked space warfare which is why i am running it sci fi.Turned out to be surprisingly simple solution so go figure.

>>38680419Yeah I will back the mystery, it's time for fun.
>>38680551Genies mysteries have sometimes come to bite us in the butt.I just hope a suerboon means this isn't the case.
>>38680579Well it's all up to chance. Like with the brood, If it's bad we make it into something good.
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>38680419Alright sorta need some tiebreakers.Go with super boon powered martial/mystery or pure martial no boon?Meanwhile the other guy is going Science!/Mastermind
While we wait I will dump some of the art I have.

Rolled 11 (1d100)>>38681327This is the beginning montage!Now and only now you will enjoy certain priviliges.Among those privileges is still having access to last civ boons!This period will end upon reaching the end of Apprenticeship.There will be time skips and swapping between the characters to keep things fresh/interesting.Welcome to War Mode Tutorial.
>>38681419We have like at least a dozen non-super boons of various assortment.
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>38681419Be aware during this time frame you will enjoy additional plot armor.However at the end of it the bonus plot armor will be rescinded. Hopefully you will have something to compensate for it...>>38681475and you get to use these during this timeframe!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlAIWuvixWwmusic.Your lifepath has been determined hopefully you get to see its end.>>38681358>>38681447male is going first.Sheesh what happen to your manners?
>>38681523What you don't want to let the lady get fluffed up before her debut?
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>38681523You...are being taken to a certain high school. Your family made sure to pay for only the best. However they were not expecting you to take it out of the Combine.The reason for this is simple. Human sourced schools in the combine are lacking...when it comes to top quality and you will have only the best.In that regard you will be attending a special institute that is backed by the Corporate Council and whom its neutrality insures that only the anyone can attend...so long as you got the cash.Which you do.So while being transported to the edge of combine space by a Combine Escort...here you split off from their forces with our own private Paramilitary and mercs addition to the school....which turned out to be an entire solar system with customized worlds and installations all for the sole sake of 'education'. Here...you will be tested.However it is though...its hard to say.Sure enough your ship docks at a space port while your escorts are stopped by the system top of the line defenses.Eventually you are escorted out and questioned while our identity is confirmed.Please Enter name>Name(What is it)>Code ******************************

>>38681766That's a fine name, assuming pic related is not actually related.
>>38681792Unless we are a femboy. Otherwise just posting art that I think fits the game.
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>38681640Just giving you guys shit over it.No fucking manners sheesh...your skills is tm at best a whomping 1.If it makes you feel any better no one else here is any better...at least if they are new anyway.They are also stupidly rich or powerful.Luckily you got the rich part not even the Megacorp kiddies got a whole lot on you!Sadly unlike them you aren't backed by a Megacorp...but rather by your family and the unreliable Combine.here their power is limited.ON the plus side so is the Republic.On the bad side the Corp kiddies still can maintain an awful lot of pull. Luckily the Corporate Council sanctioning even puts a damper on megas so it shouldn't be too much...Here you will be taught basic skills and the histories/ways of all the major factions and even a few not so major.More importantly here you can make connections the like of which most can't even dream!From Corporate CEOs to Republic Representives.All of this will be in the future of course...meanwhile as for your own position?You are a member of a Profiteer who despite the risks and through the insanity made deals with Combine and enjoyed their riches.This however did not come without risk or much jealousy. Your family made a MAD dosh the like of which would make even a mega jelly....Which is the problem.While Megas DO have some influence in Combine space unfortunately they themselves are only to mess with its members and not it as a whole...unlike the Republic and other non declared space.Your family has no small pull in the Combine but out here...you got jealous enemies among the greedy and possible outright enemies among the Republic kiddies.At least you got the Combine kiddies to back you...maybe if they didn't hate each other quite so much.Ah combine politics...corporate or republic ain't got shit on that.>>38681792Heh that would be hilarious but bad idea would rather not have to beat off the damned trap fans...
>>38681845No. We already have a girl. Male is straight male.
>>38681870We can play a feminine guy and still be straight. Then we can have the girl be the guy and make this a gender reversal or something. >>38681863... heh, beat off ... trap fans. Hehehe, never thought I read that from you.Joking aside, I hope our school years will be fun.
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>38681863While in corp space you have to worry about backstabbing(quite possibly in a literal sense) in the business rooms or riots and assassinations in the Republic...NONE of those fuckers have to deal with fullblown warfare among the Coalition just because you don't like those other guys.Like say why bother killing you with an assassin when you can just glass the ENTIRE planet?Ahh Combine politics...by far the most extreme, original, and blunt of them all.You don't like the guy?Kill him.You hate that planet?Well nice planet buster you got there boyo.Imagine Rogue Trader in terms of ethics, morality, and reasoning That pretty much sums up your family but without the grimderp setting.While among the Republic and Corps they speak in silver while forgetting the true end all be all of politics.WAR.They like dancing around the issues like a bunch of fucking pansies.Corps for the sake of their profits and Republic for the sake of saving face.Weaklings the lot of them...now if only there weren't so goddamn many of them the Combine would win instead of this bullshit.
>>38681982There's a feminine dude and then there's the picture I commented on, which is literally a girl, tits and all.
>>38682025Or a trap! I know that on pic alone that would be a girl. I was working off of the femboy angel in the post that was replied to, sorry for the confusion.
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>38681766>>38681792>>38681845>>38681870>>38681982ahem name please?Sorta holding things up.All I need is names.Appearances wise the only stuff I know about the MCs is the followingFemale scarred street rat turned hardcore Combine Elite Trooper. Dragged herself up from the gutter after for some reason her/family having to turn to the Combine for aid. Things were awful but she made it and enlisted. After all she has no one else to turn to but the Combine...whose through harsh living she acquired a deep appreciation for their ways.Male short, was a quiet kid, and is a cutey if your into that sort of type. born with silver spoon in his mouth to an absurdly wealthy and powerful family. Knows the true meaning of the Trade, politics, and intrigue. Due to Combine nature is quite familiar with warfare and its true meaning.
>>38682161Only two of use at the moment, I believe.Otherwise I'm still backing, Jake Seton.
>>38682161You just tagged me twice, already voted for Jake Seton for the dude. The girl? Marie. Just Marie.
Rolled 44 (1d100)>>38682161TLDRyour gal is hardcore having decided to on purpose go rogue and join up with the Combine. Possibly with or without her family still figuring that one out.Reason for MC being a quiet bastard?Actions speak louder in words. In his case he would rather just shoot you or nuke your world into glass. On the plus side if he likes you prepare for a house made of gold delivered to you by our own personnel space yacht.>>38682216Fuck that image bothers me with all those stupid straps...but fine.
Rolled 42 (1d100)>>38682261btw she did this as a kid.Turned out be a slummer in the Combine you were STILL better off then another slum somewhere else.Go figure right?Sad but true, this is mostly due to steep/harsh segregating the Coalition practices.
>>38682219I will back the female being named Marie.>>38682261I know right? The straps make me laugh, but I could still see some kid wearing it.More straps!
>>38682302>>38682261It'd be nice to get a big fluffy story on her too Genie, especially since she has a mystery element to her.Can we get one later?>>38682219Marie works
Jake and Marie sitting on the bridgeK I C K I N G A S S
>>38682513I more imagine Jake standing proudly and Marie being somewhere in a shadowy corner instead of sitting.
>>38682513Not choosing an annoying long name befitting of some in such wealth and stature while being so swaggilicious. Not choosing a long girly ass name for the bad ass scarred amazon coming to kill you.For shame anons. For shame.
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>38682617And making sure that such a short girly guy has real badass name.They'll never see it coming...See these two shadows coming down the hall. One of whom is big and scary whom who the other short and dainty...then they come into the light and turns out you got their identities confused.
>>38682617>>38682663Hang on then. GIMME A SECOND
>>38682663I'll come up with an appropriate long and annoying set of middle names when I'm not on my phone, Jake Sexton is just for people we like.Or that other anon can since I'm on my phone.
>>38682617I like to think of Jake as a hard worker. Then when the money came in he sits back and drinks in all in.As for the lady, she wanted cut short. >>38682663Hehehe. I like this, we will have a fun time.
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>38682829Anon she is suppose to have a long girly name which causes everyone to understimate/not expect. and the boy has a bad ass but annoying long name which does same thing!They NEVER expect such a big bad guy with such a name to such a conniving little shit!
>>38682829Heh, I like it.Although, her name should just be "Lilly".
>>38682895Darnit let me try again!
>>38682895Victoria Abigail Jake "Steel' Jones
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>38682663Heathcliff is a bad ass name How manny expiring boons do we have left?
>>38682895OKAYHer name is Marie-Ellienetta Jacqueline Vivie-Madeline LoreleiaHis name is Jakensteelflint RamboldSchwarzeNukemEastWoodWillisMcBaneterminator
>>38683174Lol. Wow that is a long name for both.
>>38683174That is a bit much.Why not something more elegant
>>38683261Grrr, it's SO HARD to get it down right.
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>38683014hm like the girls name...What about Axon Sexton for boy name?Bad ass enough?Of course it has to be added onto to sound prestigious enough.
>>38683301Xavier Heathcliff for the guy.
>>38683333Okay, locking in Victoria Abigail vote.Now for the guys name. . .
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>38683426I was just saying anon...I am gonna check some name lists to see what pops.
Xavier Holdstone Sexton?
>>38683532I can dig it
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>38683473ooh what about Liliana Abigail?Goddamn girly ass name.other namesAxel Sexton?
>>38683532>>38683688Axel Holdstone Sexton
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>38683688Or really anything for the boy preferably something annoying long.Axon Betor Sexton?Fuck if I know just come up with something and acquire consensus I don't give a shit.

Rolled 76 (1d100)>>38683770This one man! >>38683733
>>38683770So Genie, how short of a time do we have to spend our boons?What sort of things are left for us to spend boons on?How many boons do we HAVE to spend or they'll get lost?>>38683869Victoria Abigail and Jacob Axel Sexton
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>38683890Until lifepath is over.a lot.all of the ones from last civ.
>>38683934What if we dumped all expiring boons in to giving all our heros the power to gain hero powers from the heros they kill?
>>38683934"Until lifepath is over"You'll warn us as lifepath progresses then? Like, when we're roughly 1/4, 1/2, 3/5, 3/4 and 99% through?
>>38684047Do you have any idea how hard it is to kill a hero?name me one time in your time playing here you've seen a hero die directly from our hands hmm?Genie loves and puts so much effort into his heroes, he'd never we could never kill them unless the dicegods demanded their blood.
>>38683869>Victoria Abigail and Jacob Axel SextonI will back the set.Let's get this show started.
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>38684129Look at what we just did that is the lifepath.
>>38684146Then the ability to take power from anyone or any thing they kill(Uber boost to Exp gain)
>>38684146These days we need a super boon to kill even a decent hero. And since we spent them all you can kiss our hero killing goodbye.
>>38683869Victoria Abigal Jacob Axel Sexton
>>38684227Unless we use the renaming expiring boons to give our heros a hero killer ability. Plot armer can not stop them
>>38684170Okay, fair, but players are stupid so you'll give us reminders?Also, you chucklefaggot, we don't know if 'lifepath' means selecting the lifepath in THIS THREAD or playing through it in MULTIPLE THREADS.
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>38684285multiple threads.This was just to determine the overall route.
>>38684285Genie never gives clear answers. It's like we are playing a game of chess but using checkers peaces, and only he knows what peace represents what.
Also for anyone who could be interested. /co/ is having a thread with the Mort comic from Terry's work posted. >>>/co/70206684
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>386838693 jake seton3 marie1 jake sexton5 victoria abigail LOCKED1 jake 'steel' jones3 xavier holdstone sexton3 Jacob Axel SextonSo will Axel Seton Sexton work or something?Bah terrible combination...
>>38684275Hmm.We could give it to boost Abigail's SNIPER abilityAbilitiy:[Sniper Elite V1] - Single Fire shot of massive damage meant for high priority target. Bonus against heroes. Automatic critical damage against heroes. Automatic nullification of deflection attempts. Major Penalty applied to heroes. Damage is increased exponentially by enemy hero relevance to plot and threat level.
>>38684456Jacob Axel Holdstone
>>38684490Would using our boons be able to purchase this?
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>38684490I would back this.
>>38684636I can settle for that.
Rolled 17 (1d100)>>38684636I like it.
>>38684456Genie, still need a tiebreaker?
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>38684490Vote. But I want all our heros to have hero killer powes.
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>38685217Obviously or a good fitting name would be nice too...but alas I suck at names.
>>38685488I can't think of names either. We're both at an impasse here.
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>38685488Roll off? Otherwise I will back Jacob Axel Holdstone. It seems to have the most votes.
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>38685577it needs to be an annoyingly long and pretentious name anon for maximum affect.
>>38685618But it's taking a annoyingly long time to do and I would hate for people to leave. It's best we get this show on the road, less we wish to have people fall off this ride.
>>38685618>>38685699Can we edit the name later? Say its his nickname
>>38685618Can you think of a shitty example we might make less shitty?
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>38685699Fine very well just let me get something to eat and crap.
>>38686033Let us make a better name later. For now this is his nickname.
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>38681659>Name******************Accepted. Welcome new student you will be escorted to school meeting summit. After that you will be taken to a new summit for new students along with a first year summit later on.Enjoy your time here for it is limited.With that you were whisked away on School vessels to the meeting....which was quite a grand affair. You could see all matter of aliens and monsters attending it including a few other things as well.There was basically as it turned out a party for the beginning of a new year. Which was a pain especially considering apparently you had two other of these gauntlets to run later on.Which group do you wish to mingle with?>Combine>Republic>Corpers>Independents>Third PartiesOr you can do so by rough year.>Beginners>Experienced>Veterans>Last Years>FacultyYou can choose either one but be aware you only have so much time and they DO have matters they will have to attend to. This isn't the only event that is required to attend.
>>38686540>>CombineSpend a boon on being good at socialness and diplomacy with our fellow combine
>>38686540>>CorpersMaybe we can make friends for later weapon buying.
>>38686708The Combine has some pretty sweet weaponry already, from what i recall.
>>38686595thirding, also use a boon
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>38686540>Independents
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>38686595The independents or better known as that group who have no backers. As in they got in here from soley their own merit without much in the name of backing.Exactly the skilled sort of people you want to know. So that is where your headed...and sure enough they are all largely clustered together looking awkward. Weird how they all somehow know each other despite lacking questions.So you approach and try to make nice...if only you weren't so damned quiet. Greetings are exchanged and...oh they are wandering if your one of them.What say?Confirm Y/N?Meanwhile talk to them about what?>What they did>Friends>Enemies>School>other?
>>38687290Alright, we seem to have been lucky with that decision. Now what to say
>>38687290>Confirm Y/NNWe didn't really do anything special to get here, just being born into a rich family. We wouldn't have chosen be here if we didn't recognize that as a deficiency, and respect those that DID do something to get here though.>Meanwhile talk to them about what>Friends>Enemies
Rolled 24 (1d100)>>38687290No need to lie, no I'm not. I would like to get to know you all, if that is alright.>other?How is things for them here? Any goals for life or taking things on as they come?
>>38687371Sounds about right. We got here on a silver flying carpet of our parents backs.Perhaps we offer them lunch as a token of offering? We can afford it, and its gonna slip about our ludicrous wealth anyway.
>>38687371To be clear, we should /rub in/ being rich. Just mention it in a reasonable manner as explanation.We're not better than any of them (quite the opposite) but we got lucky and we're here. In fact, if we got a pal to help us with our deficiencies our connections might even help us and them IF we got out of school.
>>38687431Try not to rub it in though.The way I see it this can go two ways. They are either marxist and entirely opposed and hostile to us being very rich.Or are more practical people and see us as an asset they can use.
>>38687481*******SHOUlDN'T******* rub in being rich
>>38687481>>38687490>>38687499Yeah, don't flaunt our wealth. But don't lie, explain how it doesn't make us any better or worse than them.Offer them lunch, see if they except. If they do, jokingly mention how they "owe us lunch next time guys".
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>38687290So wait what is consensus?Notice some stuff going back and forth.
>>38687745Tell the truth. We aren't independant like them. We have the backing of our family.Try to get good in with them by offering them lunch. Yes, we are rich, but do not flaunt it.Talk to them about friends and enemies
>>38687745It's not back-and-forth, it's a middlepoint. You can be a rich person who mentions they're rich without being obnoxious about it.
>>38687816This is it
Rolled 27 (1d100)>>38687988>>38687816If this is it you'll need dice.
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>38688087Better dice than that.
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>38687816So it begins?
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>38687816"hm family backing? Your family must be quite powerful and more importantly stupidly rich."They decline on the lunch."Ah so your Combine aligned huh? Well obviously your gonna need to watch out for the Republic and their cronies...but to think you descendent from someone who took played the Combine hah.""As for us we have many potential friends and enemies but unlike you ours are much murkier. Though your is a bit murkier then the usual Combine member but its still quite a bit more clear cut then ours.""There is a reason why we stick together after all."Your not stupid you heard the stories of scholarship students teaming up later on in live before pulling off massive things. That is assuming they live to pull it off anyway.>Try to visit more(how?)>Hit up another group(which?)
Rolled 40 (1d100)>>38688159That makes sense. Well it's been fun chatting with you all and if need a backer for something don't be afraid to ask. I'm going to see what else this school has, I'm hoping they have an arcade machine.>Hit up another group(which?)Third Parties
>>38688159Hmm, might wanna put an effort of friendlyness, even if its just a longer chat before parting goodbye. Let em remember us as someone who isn't there enemy and might just like to stick around sometimes.
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>38688159I say keep talking to them. They are exactly what we want. They got here on there own merits. They are one of competence. If we can befriend them and eventually work with them then we will do good.They have a lot of ability. All thus lack is the capital and power to use it. That's what we can provide. So how do we get in there good graces? We should talk about an ancestor of ours that begun our family's fortune. Say how much we admire that ancestor. Say that they remind you of that ancestors. Say how you want to be more like them. Rising to the top without the need of old world pillars
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>38689368Also They got here because the where amazing (there group will have the largest concentration of heros)It better to have them with us. We shouldn't exclusively be with them. But we should focus. Because they will be the most free in the future. They won't have counsels and people to report to they will do as they will.
Is there some kind of pastebin with info about the world and how game mechanics work? I'm a massive noob and I'm massively confused.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>38688159>Try to visit more(how?)>What they didGet a sense of what exactly one has to do in order to get here on merit.Also, try to find one that's a (competent) show-off or know-it-all so we can learn skills from him/her without having to give them anything.
>>38694514Unfortunately this is the second time we've gotten into this world politics. The first was more civ base. The past civ, call Hax, got a fair amount of world info, but not all of it. The link here has a lot of the civs organized. Just control F for Hax spaceciv, if you want to read. (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ufBecUILGaUawnuV62JSrMBHDdhisZF1VqIP1wr90T4/edit?usp=sharing )I have one started for the post apoc civs, but I doubt it will be of use here. As for the mechanics ... it would probably be easier if I give you the link to the last civ, if you want. If had a lot of that posted in there. The rest is a work in progress, to my understanding. Otherwise this game type is a bit different than the normal. We are questing with our heroes to build then up. Then we will be heavy into combat with ... I want to say some to a lot of politics depending on how we play.
