>>39797500You know, considering how often you have your dreams, at this point you'd probably be used to the whole black void floating thing. Happens often enough really.The dreams have gotten more vivid recently, there's danger in the future, directed towards you and your home, but quite frankly, you're not sure if you believe the dreams.The voice is there too, just like always, whispers of the dangers that are going to be coming soon enough, but this time, it's something different, instead of just mad ramblings, it's actually talking to you."What are you... Who are you? Are you the one that we need, or just another failure in the making... like so many others?"The voice sounded almost sad when it spokeSurprisingly enough, for the first time in this dream, you're actually lucid enough to speak back.>Who are you?>A.

>>39797840Lizard Squad has your back random anon.
>>39797860So are we going to be stupid Stronk right at the beginning of we're an arcosian?
>>39797799Arctus, you are Arctus, once a noble member of the Arcosian race, feared throughout the galaxy for your powers.Well, at the very least, the rulers of your race were, before "The Incident". The Cold family had ruled over your home planet of Arcosia for around five hundred years before the incident.They were considered to be without a doubt the most powerful members of your race, and quite frankly, likely the most powerful in the universe as they so often liked to brag.You were't a member of the Cold family, not technically at least.Lord Frieza was your cousin, and King Cold your Uncle.It wasn't very often that you actually saw them, let alone Cooler, who surprisingly, had actually been pretty damn nice to you in the past.Maybe that old rumor about outcasts having to stick together had some truth to it.Nevertheless.Even as a member of the Arcosian race, you were still far below the Cold family when it came to your power level.They were mutants, Arcosians weren't supposed to be born with that type of power at their finger tips.The legends spoke of a few attaining that power, but never through birth. Of course, legends tend to not matter when those they affect could tear your head off easily, and not care if you were family."Arctus then? Very well... Arctus... We will be watching you. There are great things in your future... it's up to you to figure out how you will influence the universe."Waking up with a groan, you shake your head a bit. Damn dreams always left you with a headache and some memory issues involving the previous night.Where the space hell were you again?>A. Space nigga>B. Planetside.
>>39797906No, we need to train for a few months, first.
>>39797906Maybe? Arcosians were probably the strongest race in the galaxy, but the Cold Family were mutants amongst them and were extremely strong as a result.
>>39797906Actually they're not really THAT much stronger than other races, at least according to Xenoverse. Freeza's family were all hyper-powerful mutants, with Freeza having the most raw power.
>>39797906Nah doubt it.Gottah twist shit if you want to run a DBZ quest due to BS Powerlevels and inconsistencies
>>39797934>>A. Space nigga
>>39797934>The legends spoke of a few attaining that power, but never through birth. Of course, legends tend to not matter when those they affect could tear your head off easily, and not care if you were family.>Legendary Super ArcosiansAll my kek/hype.
>>39797934>A. Space niggaCan't very well rub shoulders with the Cold Family if we're not traveling everywhere to raise our own standing and prowess, can we?
>>39797934>B. Planetside.Nursing a hangover in a ditch
>>39797844I knew it! The Chicken Mafia are controlling everything!
>>39797934>A. Space nigga
The PTO is stupidIt's leaders inefficient, cruel and unstableWe should build our own empire with blackjack and hookersI know just the planet to start
>>39798044Think the Saiyans would want a chance to face fuck frieza? Or would we also get face fucked?
>>39798044Man, what if we just gave earth a pass this quest? Eventually we're going to get sucked there anyways so why not live a little out in the galaxy first?
>>39797950>>39797969>>39797978>>39798003>>39798021Oh right... space. You're pretty much always in space these days, going around wherever your estranged family wanted you to.However, this was most certainly NOT your private room on your ship.Blinking a few times and groaning as you stretched out, you realized you were clutching an empty bottle in your handAw fuck.Finally truly awake, you managed to see that you had ended up hanging from the steel beams at the top of the mess hall by your tail.Again.Now staring at the subordinate that had just entered the room a few seconds ago, he looked rather uncomfortable, but didn't avert his eyes."I did it again, didn't I Jenkins?" You simply asked him, still hanging there as though it was the most natural thing in the world."Y-yes Master Arctus! Not to disturb you sir but... we've arrived at the planet. What are your orders?"Oh that's right, you were ordered to come visit Cooler. Nice guy that one, he always brought out the good stuff for you.>Orders?>A. Transmit necessary information and land>B. Tell Jenkins to bring you your morning booze, the good stuff>C. Write in
>>39798128>implying we wont just take Earth with us wherever we goThe planet IS our spaceship, home boy.
>>39798131>>C. Write inKill all chickens you come across
>>39798131>A. Transmit necessary information and landWe should be all business when Uncle is around.
>>39798140>not blowing up Earth from space
>>39798131>A. Transmit necessary information and land
>>39798131>A. Transmit necessary information and landLet's save the morning booze for when we have to deal with Frieza and King Cold
>>39798168That'll take too long, we dont have five minutes to waste.
>>39798131>A. Transmit necessary information and landHe's a pretty cool guy, which means that we can't dick around.
>>39798131>we are a drunk>we are a distant member of friezas family>Frieza and co are dead>one of these days bill's/whis is gonna go off to do bullshit.oh shit dis gonnan be good.>A. Transmit necessary information and land>B. Tell Jenkins to bring you your morning booze, the good stuff
>>39798131While the temptation to throw away any possibility of remaining sober existed, Cooler deserved some proper respect, plus you kinda wanted to save the good stuff for the next time you needed to visit Uncle Cold or Frieza.Letting go of the metal that your tail was holding onto, you remained floating, calmly righting your self and landing on the floor."Send our identification to Lord Cooler's men, prep the ship for landing. I will return to my quarters and prepare myself for our visit. If any transmition from Lord Cooler comes in, redirect it there. Understood?""Yes Master Arctus!" Jenkins says with a crisp salute before running off to give your orders to the rest of the crew.Good man that Jenkins, he'd be getting a Frieza day bonus this year.Making your way quickly to your private chambers, you don a fresh set of armor that has the crest of the PTO on it, with the side cape showing your noble status, along with your scouter.As soon as you've finished readying yourself, a beep alerts you that there's an incoming transmission from Cooler himself.Making your way over to the moniter, you accept the transmission and are greeted with the sight of your cousin."Arctus." He greets you with a simple nod.How do you reply?>A. "Lord Cooler">B. "Cooler">C. "Cousin"
>>39798324>What it is, Ice-Man?! How you doinn sshhhiiiiieeeet?This is a joke.
>>39798324>A. "Lord Cooler"We may be a rampaging drunk but let's try not to broadcast it
>>39798324>A. "Lord Cooler"Formalities are important, at least while in front of the grunts.
>>39798324>A. "Lord Cooler."
>>39798324C. "Hey Cousin! Let's go bowling."
>>39798408This. We can use Frieza Planet 419 as the ball.
Rampage drive + Skybreaker the ship and planet after landing.
>>39798344>>39798357>>39798374>>39798389"Lord Cooler. A pleasure as always." You give as a reply along with your own brief nod.This brings an amused grin to the elder Arcosian's face."Indeed Arctus, I wish I could say that this was simply a social call, but the matter we shall be discussing today is incredibly important."The grin didn't last very long, and considering how serious your Cousin was sounding, you really weren't liking the possibilities of what might come next."What comes next needs to be discussed in person, Arctus. Have your forces land near my capital and join me. You won't be staying for long, so have the crew remained prep."Yep... this wasn't going to be good, and you were already regretting not having the morning booze brought along."Very well Lord Cooler. I'll be there as soon as possible."With a final nod from each of you, the transmission is ended.>What will you do now?>A. Order the crew to land and remain onboard>B. Find a drink>C. Write in
>>39798580>A. Order the crew to land and remain onboard>C. Write inFind some coffee or something, we need to be as awake and as sober as we can for this next meeting.
>>39798580That was written poorly on my part.For clarification, Option A should read "Order the crew to land the ship, and inform them to remain onboard."
>>39798580Order crew to land, blow up planet from space.A and head towards the capital.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>39797579R-roll to find coffee?
>>39798665Bad Somnius you can't play your own quest thread you cheeky git!Kudos on the doompaul they kinda deserved it. They really raised Piccolo Sr.?
>>39798432>Not Frieza Planet 420God, you do NOT know how to party!
>>39798580With a shake of your head you can't really help but feel as though something very bad was going to be happening soon... perhaps it was related to those dreams you'd been having recently?There was no use in wondering about those kind of things right now, there was work to be done.With alcohol temporarily being out of the question for the moment, your eyes drifted to the coffee maker that was located to the side on a shelf. You're fairly certain it had never been used, but considering how today was turning out, there wasn't a better time to start.Sending a message to the bridge with instructions that you would be leaving to visit Cooler alone, you went about attempt to brew a cup of space coffee.Tasted like shitStill though, it managed to get you perky enough as to where you felt like drowsiness wouldn't be a problem for a while.Not long after you finished downing the black liquid of evil, the ship landed, and Jenkins informed you that everything was in order for you to be on your way to visit Lord Cooler.>Any last minute things to do on the ship?>A. Leave>B. Write in.
>>39798580I'm getting sort of a planefag vibe from you, Eail.>C. Write inCurse and grumble thoroughly, but not in sight of the subordinates. Gotta look like we know what we're doing and that we have shit in order, even if shit has in all likelihood already collided with the fan leaving us up shit creek without a paddle.
>>39798794Make sure we're dressed appropriately. ... Do Arcosians even wear clothes?Oh well. At least wash off the alcohol, vomit, and arcosian female secretions so we don't smell as bad as we feel.
>>39798856You have already cleaned up and changed into a new set of armor, which, at this point, is pretty much all the clothing you wear.
>>39798794>B. Write in.Tell them to be ready to leave for space as soon as we get back on the ship.
>>39798794>Grab a bottle of booze in case this is end-of-the-multiverse type news.
>>39798794>B. Spray ourself with the equivalent of Space Old Spice in lieu of a showerThen go
Beat that bitch, good end.>>39797962
>>39798794Tapping your scouter, you inform Jenkins to keep the ship ready for take off, Cooler had said that this wouldn't take very long, and you had no reason to doubt him there. With a slight bit of hesitation before leaving, you make the decision to spray a bit of cologne on yourself, better safe than sorry when dealing with family.Grumbling a bit, and quite frankly rather concerned about the possible reasons Cooler could have had to summon to his capital with such haste, that attitude quickly slips away as you leave your ship. Rather happy that you remembered to pack your lucky flask on the inside of your armor... just in case.Declining the use of a hover chair the way that your Cousin Frieza does, you walk with a sense of haste towards the door away from the landing pad. The guards standing to the side and saluting you as you pass through.Weak compared to Frieza you may be, but you're an Arcosian damn it, people still fear you for the power you have.When you arrive in Cooler's throne room, you can't help but notice that absolutely no one else is there. No servantsNo guardsJust you and Cooler, who quite frankly seems to be in not the best mood you've ever seen him in.Standing as you approach, Cooler walks down the steps of his throne. Grabbing your forearm with his hand, as you do the same to him, there's a brief nod on both sides."I have a problem at the moment Arctus, and you're currently the only one I can rely on at the moment."Last time he said that you nearly died."Tell me... cousin. Have you heard of a planet known as Earth?">To be continuedThat's it for the first thread of the quest folks.I know we didn't accomplish much but I think this has quite a bit of potential.If you like, follow me on twitter @Eail4Should be a threat tomorrow at around 6 pm Central. Give or take a bit.I'll stick around for half an hour or so to talk and chill. Questions, Advice, Complaints?Oh yeah and can someone archive this?
>>39799114I can archive it. What did you want the formal name of the quest to be?
>>39799114Does this mean we have to kill a small young earthling with an insane ability to scale up power rapidly and faster than most space monkeys?
>>39799156I'd say DBZ Arcosian Quest personally. If that's too shitty and expected, we can go with some suggestions? DBZ Space Alcoholic Quest>>39799163I will neither confirm nor deny thisYou have the ability to become a hero or an incredibly evil space lizard, or something in between.Remember the dreams, always
>>39799114Since Arctus is considered a noble in the PTO, what kind of privileges does that afford him?
>>39799163Don't worry about it, he is narcoleptic.
>>39799114Looks interesting so far2 questions1. I know we aren't too close to Cooler and Freiza's level but what exactly is ou power level?2. is your game going to have a rolling mechanic of some kind?
seems pretty interesting so far man I look forward to more.
>>39799192>DBZ Space Alcoholic QuestI can dig it
>>39799192 DBZ Alcoholic Arcosian Quest?
>>39799193He has the right to go wherever he wishes, assuming he's not on assignment from Cooler, Cold, or Frieza.He takes orders from no one aside from those three, and so long as his orders do not get in the way of an order from the Cold family, he can order around other members of the PTO>Yes, you can order around the Ginyu Force.>>39799203Your current power level is around 200,000Arctus is the strongest non Cold Family member of the PTO, as far as he knows.A rolling mechanic is likely, it will be tested to see if it works out.>>39799208Thanks anon, any complaints or advice? That goes for the lot of you as well.
>>39799214>>39799192DBZ Quest for More Booze
>>39799163I hope we can just blow it up immediately to kill Goku and prevent Logan's birth and then we only have to worry about the dickhole saiyans. Without Goku the DBZ people are liable to never unite at all.
>>39799248critique? Maybe a bit more detail or transitional bits. At times it feels like comic panels in text rather than a story.
>>39798694They wanted it, I allowed it. They didn't like the way I did it.
>>39799214I trust your judgement>>39799276A fair point, I've never done this before and quite frankly probably didn't put as much detail in as I could have.It'll be a learning experience for me just as much as you all as we continue on this magical journey together.>>39799301S-Som Senpai, did I do all right for my first quest thread?
Going with DBZ Space Alcoholic Quest, then. Archiving now. Give a vote if you enjoyed reading/participating!
>>39799301I don't know what they expected. Senior was basically a green Hitler from the depths of hell itself. How did they expect it to turn out anyway but horrible things happen?
>>39799321I can see it now.>"Oh you little shit I will fucking BLOW YOU THE SPACE UP YOU LITT-.... is that some 80 year old scotch? Give me that and I spare your awful planet from exploding."
>>39799316Has Arctus been on a lot of missions on behalf of the PTO? Or has he been more or less drifting around space drinking whatever he can find and getting into bar fights?
>>39799316You did indeed. I look forward to seeing how you progress.
>>39799384Who says those things are mutually exclusive?Arctus has performed several missions on behalf of the PTO in the past. Most of them political in nature, which pretty much meant he ended up getting fucking blasted with politicians and making some new treaty agreements.There have also been several missions in the past he'd rather not talk about if possible.Remember, you have the capability of becoming a hero that Goku would be proud of.Or end up making Frieza look like a child in comparison to what you will do.The dreams.
>>39799330They refused to use metaknowledge to know Piano was associated with Piccolo Sr. Something about the QM having complained about them metagaming before must've put them off. The only potential way to acquire the information while IC (that the players could think of) wound up not telling Kaguya anything that might've led to him guessing the connection.
>>39799114Thanks for the quest. Don't know how much I'll be able to pitch in in the near future due to orientation and training shenanigans, but I'll pop in whenever I can.
>>39799454We are not intelligent men anon, that's why we do the things we do.>>39799458Thanks friend, here's hoping I can manage to make this fun for all of us.
>>39799330I was expecting horrible things to happen.I was not expecting the QM to get burnt out and suddenly hiatus/drop the quest.
>>39799403Bit of an odd question man but, would you mind following me on Twitter, so I could Direct Message you some time?I'd like a bit of advice on a few things if it's cool with you.
>>39799454We did mention Goku to him, but he showed no fear of his name. And people refused to inform our friends, because some wanted to waifu Videl and spend threads in Satan Castle. We also refused to research about past Kings, which Piano said his father was.I was actually fine with how the revival went. Though I'm curious what happens if Piccolo dies, since he must be alive for the BSB to work, which means returning them to Earth would do nothing if they are no longer active.
>>39799523Sure, what's your twitter?
>>39799468>We are not intelligent men anonIt was in-character and set up what is shaping up to be one of the most interesting arcs so far. You did nothing wrong.>>39799535>And people refused to inform our friendsI'm not sure how that would've helped? Unless I've forgotten something, they didn't have any particular knowledge about DKP/Piano either.>We also refused to research about past Kings, which Piano said his father was.That might've helped, but Kaguya wasn't really fretting about Piano's wish too frequently, so him not going out of his way to research instead of playing around isn't surprising.
>>39799678@Eail4 is the twitter.
>>39799685We tell Gohan some pterodactyl guy wants to revive his dad who was a king. He might have some knowledge on that.
>>39799814Or any of the Z-fighters that weren't Haya, Kazuma, or Videl for that matter.
This thread was shit and you should feel like shit.Unoriginal copycat fuck.
Man, I was thinking of starting a db quest, but there's way too many now. Looks like I'll go with starting that Justice League Henchman quest.
>>39799913Don't know, going full SpaceNapeloHitler might be fun. Especially if we nuke Earth before Vegeta and Nappa get there.
>>39799998At the moment you are completely capable of killing everyone on earth. The only one that would cause remote trouble would be Great Ape Vegeta at full strength, or a Super Saiyan.Remember the dreams anon.
>>39799998>We land on earth, extremely drunk>"I say we take off and nuke the entire planet from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.">Jenkins: "Game over, man! Game over!"
>>39800037I'm actually a bit amused that we could hire the Ginyu Force to do just that
Here's a thought.What if the Z fighters were completely different group from how we remember them?>Krillin killed Vegeta at the cost of his own life, learned the Kaio Ken>Nappa, knocked unconscious during the fight, lives on the outskirts of human society, trying not to attract attention while he figures out where to go from here. He could be an ally.>Goku continues to train against Krillin to test his own strength>Rest of the Z fighters train as well, but not as hard as they would if they knew what was coming to them.Thoughts, or is it hardcore canon until we warp it?
>>39800211>HiringThat's a funny word, Arcosian's dont use that wordIf you all don't make me write Arctus posing Kaguya style at least once I'll be sad
>>39800247Posing gives you stat boosts. Ginyu was onto something.
>>39800245You present interesting concepts anon, these will be brought under consideration.
>>39800281Super Human Krillin when?
>>39800414I'm fairly certain if I just straight up steal the super human idea from Som that everyone will vanish from this quest faster than Shin fell down that hole in Avatar Quest
>>39800443Obviously, to counter the that, you should introduce a being of truly unrivaled potential, spoken of only in legend.The Legendary Super Swine
>>39800701Ze legendary Super Swine?Anon surely you jest, no man could hope to stand up to that power.
>>39800733Screw it, everything becomes Super!Super Arcosians, Super Swines, Superhumans, Super Aryans, Super Turtles, even Super Tuffles!And once everyone is Super... no one will be.
>>39800826But what happens when someone becomes double Super?
>>39800911Maximum over saiyan?
>>39800911Nah, I was kidding when I suggested >>39800414.Honestly, it would be kinda refreshing for transformations to be complete bullshit and not match, you know, hard work and actual strategy?
>>39800247We'll pose with the Ginyus, instead of against them, while drunk and learn that we become more coordinated and more deadly when fighting drunk.
What is the current Age?
>>39801956It is in the 760'sOn an unrelated note, by any chance if people are still around, I've run into a few problems in my mental list of future events for this.Transformations/Transformation for Arctus.Yes/No?
>>39803081so I take Freiza is kill then?
>>39803081well, are we wandering around in our first form like freiza or is our power stable enough that we can just stay in natural form/ fourth form?
>>39804497If we're wandering around in our third suppression then our max power is probably around 40 mil or so.Which would be cool.
>>39804548OP said our power is 200 000 here>>39799248 im assuming that was at max powerdoesnt mean we cant have forms anyways
>>39803081Not yet we gotta earn it/them
>>39804585If 200000 is our max power in true form then our third suppression is (assuming same ratio to Frieza) PL950, which is lower than Raditz.>>39803081Anyway, on the subject of transformations, yeah why not?
>>39803081Only if we're kind of sarcastic about it. As in >Yes, I can transform too.>I know it's getting old by now, but couldn't you at least pretend to be surprised?>This is literally all I have left.
I had figured out a system for battles with melee and ki , 6 stats ( 3 offensive and 3 defensive) plus energy for ki attack . Rolls are opposed with the guy with the most successes winning . Are you interested or is this too complicated for a quest ?
>>39804778Isn't that Regalia's system?
>>39804480As far as you know, no>>39804497Arctus currently only has one form and has no idea if he can transform>>39804614Sort of the idea I was going with for now.>>39804778Hit me with it, here or on Twitter
>>39804857but do we look like freizas midget first form or the taller smooth final form like coolers natural state?
>>39804873At the moment you are currently taller than Frieza, yet shorter than Cooler.Arctus currently has single set of horns on his head.If I get some time before next session, I may use Xenoverse as a guideline.You guys have any preferences for colors?
>>39804800A bit variatonThe stats are:Strength: How hard you hit a meleeKi: How powerful you attacks areOffense: How accurate are your attacksDurability : How much physical hurt you can endureResistance : How much ki you can takeDefense : How good are you at dodging /deflecting Rolls are like this : roll a number of d10 equal to a stat, opposed by the enemy's opposite stat. 9-10 is a success . Every success you have more than the enemy gives 1 point of advantage. The first who gains 10 advantage points wins. Examples:Melee attack : Offesnse vs Defense to see if you hit, then Str vs Dur to see how much advantage you gain.Ki attack: Off vs def to see if you hit, Ki vs Res to see how much advantage you gainIt was a system that I used for a failed quest. It was a bit DBZish so I can easy convert some mechanics, such as ki attack profiles
>>39803081>>39804614>>39804857>Gaining TransformationsArcosians don't really work that way, Cooler's super form is the only transformation that actually increased his base power, all of Frieza's transformations were actually him reverting to a previous state from a transformation that decreased his power to help keep it under control because Frieza didn't know shit about ki control.Basically Eail, what we're wondering is if we're in the Arcosian 'base' form, like Frieza's fourth form or the one Cooler walks around all the time in, or if we've subconsciously suppressed our power and are in Frieza's first form (the third suppressed form).
>>39804972Maybe some blue and teals and other "cool" colors along that spectrum instead of the purple/white color scheme that the Cold family has. It'll give some distinction to Arctus.
>>39805049God damn Cold family and their mutant power fuckin' it all up power level wise n such.Arctus currently resembles a mix between Frieza's first form and Final form. He lacks the ribbed pinkness that Frieza had on his arms and legs, and overall looks much smoother, and is taller than Frieza's Final Form, yet shorter than Cooler's "Base" Form.At current, Arctus assumes that what he has lived his entire life in is his true "base/final" form, and he simply looks different from Frieza and Cooler in that respect because of family differences and the whole mutant factor.Arctus is unsure what may happen if he 'unlocked' the ability to transform, as there are legends of such power within the Arcosian race. Most assume this speaks of the Cold family, and their insane powers and the transformations they use to hide it.May be true, may not.
>>39805147Heh, would be funny if it turns out that all Arcosians instinctually transform to a suppressed state on/before birth/hatching/whatever they use to reproduce and the mutation in the Cold family is that they just don't have that instinct.ANyway, thanks for answering and I second >>39805084's ideas for Arctus' coloration.
>>39805002Every fight is divided in rounds, where many actions are possible along wi standard attacks. Those are:>Guard . You focus all your effort in defending yourself .+ 1 Def for a round. If you make twice as many successes as the opponents do at the subsequent def vs off roll, you can make a riposte as he leaves an opening, making a free melee attack that hits automatically > All out attack . You focus all your might on a single devastating strike, if a bit reckless . + 1 Str or Ki and + 1 off, but - 2 defense for one round.> Power up. You focus your ki for a short boost, but this leaves you I defended . + 2 ki and -2 force for two roundsTesting out the points allocation , I feel it balanced around 30~ 35 points
>>39805084>>39805214Dont have time to put too much work into it, gotta leave in 10 minutes for a final, but this the sorta style you guys wanted for color? Too wonky?I'm kinda shit when it comes to what blends well together color wise.
>>39805341More green, less purple.Also paler.
>>39805341I can cook up some color schemes for Arctus today and present them later on when the thread begins, or just post them intermittently before that. I spent like an hour cycling through different color combinations and such with my own Freeza race CaC to get a good combination of colors down. In my experience, lighter colors generally work for the carapace while darker colors work better for the shiny bits.
>>39805353Noted>>39805403Thanks man, I'd appreciate itRemember the twitter is @Eail4 if you end up wanting to keep up with all of this.I'll give warnings when threads are >HAPPENINGalong with a few other fun things here and there.
>>39805295As for power level difference , I'll keep it simple: If you are stronger than you opponent , you get a number of rerolls per roundLess than 2x stronger : 2 rerolls2-3x stronger : 3 rerolls3-4x stronger : 4 rerolls Etc.Any comments until now ?
>>39805466I was going to wait until you were done, but I'm digging this anonYou're likely going to end up seeing your system introduced here, at least in a fashion of some kind, if not the entire thing.
>>39805495Thanks Senpai ! I'll get working on ki techniques next. Grappling is the greatest thorn right now, since you need to win an opposed Str check to escape so a guy who dumps Str will be buttfucked bymany people
>>39805696Just make it reasonably difficult to actually get someone in a grapple, kind of like how you'd expect from fights where people can maneuver in three dimensions on a dime at super speeds.
>>39805721>>39805721>>39805721Good idea. Grappling is Now Off vs Def to initiate, but successes are only at 10 instead of 9-10 to picture how hard it is to get a hold on someone who moves at mach 3+. As for ki, would you prefer to have certain unchangeable techniques, or would you rather have two Tabula Rasas (Beam and Blast) that you can add stuff on at the price of costing more energy ?Shit i forgot about energy. Every fighter has 50 energy base. Melee attack costs 1 . Ki attacks vary between 2-10, depending on how strong they are
>>39805885>As for ki, would you prefer to have certain unchangeable techniques, or would you rather have two Tabula Rasas (Beam and Blast) that you can add stuff on at the price of costing more energy?For the purposes of a quest thread, it should be easy enough to just freeform it, would make creating esoteric techniques like the Hellzone Grenade or Bojack's crew's draining threads easier.
>>39805885Three Tabula Rasas, actually. There's Beam, blast, and Fist (Wolf fang fist, and other melee-based Ki techniques)
>>39805969Very well, here are some qualities you can addBarrage : When you use this technique, you may subtract any number from your offense stat . You may make a number of additional attacks equal to the number subtracted Additional energy cost : 1Homing : This technique follows the opponents moves, making exceedingly difficult to dodge . On the opposed check to hit, the target suffers -2 to his defense scone and gains no bonus from guarding. ( He can still make a riposte if he gets x2 successes )Additional cost : 3Drilling : This particular technique deals far more physical damage than most . It targets durability instead of defenseAdditional cost : 1Destructive: This technique can hit multiple opponents depending on its typeBlast : In an spherical area around the targetBeam: in a line behind the targetFist: Any adjactent to the targetAdditional cost: 2Charging: You may spend X rounds charging up this technique. For each round you do so, you gain +1 force when you use it. Being attacked in a way that your opponent will gain advantage points makes you stop charging and losing the techniqueAdditional cost: XDeadly : This technique is particularly lethal. Successes at force rolls are 8-10 instead of 9-10Additional cost :3ExamplesMasenko :Barrage Destructive Homing BlastSpecial beam cannon: Deadly drilling BeamKamehameha: Charging Destructive beamSome techniques like the Solar flare will be explained once attained, and cannot have qualities on them
>>39805941I kinda agree here. There's a few examples of rules-heavy Quest Threads that have a dedicated playerbase, but that's mostly because there's one or two dedicated anons who are willing to wade into all the rules and optimize things for everyone else. All the other anons just decide how to steer the narrative and roll the dice. Freeform with some loose dice rules might be the best way to go here.
Last post about rules I swear Beams work a little differently than blasts and fists ( that work exactly as melee) . If you hit an enemy with a beam and he fails to deflect it, you can choose to maintain it next round. If you, the enemy can do two things instead of standard actions next round: Try to escape a beam, or fire back with his own to enter a beam struggle . The first requires a simple def vs force roll, taking a beam attack if he fails, while sucess signifies that he has escaped the beam and the fight continues normally .The second one is a bit complicated: You make opposed force checks, and he who wins makes a beam attack ( that hits automatically , so only for e vs res roll) at the enemy, who is launched aside , ending the struggle and continuing the fight normally next round . In case ifs draw, nobody takes damage and the struggle continues next round until someone wins or runs out of energy to manta his beam .
>>39805460Alright, I have made several color schemes for Arctus in DBXV. Here's the first one, totally not based off of another alien-looking character that Akira Toriyama made.
>>39810232Here's the second one. Made this guy have more "cool" colors, specifically blues and teals. Bears little resemblance to the other members of the Cold family.
>>39810251Here's #3. He's a pretty cool guy. Looks familiar somehow.
>>39810265And here's #4. Kind of a blend of #1 and #2. Has his own distinct markings, but looks like he could fit into a family photo with Uncle Cold and his other cousins.
>>39810286This one seems most "canon" to me.
If we do get a Transformation, I hope its as balls-out crazy as Cooler's was.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDU0k8vP9pw>that fucking hockey mask
>>39810286This could work
>>39810286Blue is best
>>39810807Frieza knocked off xenomorphs from alien, cooler knocked off shredder. Clearly, our transformation should knock off Battletoads.
>>39810286That one is the best, though i would have preferred it if Arctus Jewel things were colored the same shade of turquoise as a super-saiyans eyes, just for the reference. Not a big deal though.
>>39811724So we would knock off the villain from Battle Toads?
>>39811845if so, then spoiler, Arctus IS a girl instead of just sounding and acting like one like frieza
>>39811845>So we would knock up the villain from Battle Toads?FTFY
>>39810286Oh hell yeah, I'm digging this one Anon, others are good but this one just hits it all perfectly.>>39811738I'm interested in seeing this as well, just as an option for things, know what I mean?
>>39811939I'll see how it goes. Tried to make it match, but it kinda clashed with the rest of the outfit.
>>39812125Eh, if it doesn't work, it doesn't work.Sadly I doubt we could actually pull off a proper transformation with just Xenoverse for Arctus, just not enough options for good stuff.QUEST NUMBER TWO BEGINS IN TWO HOURS.GET HYPE Follow me on twitter @Eail4 for updates like that
>>39812190Don't be afraid to do some creative shit for transformations for us.For all we know, Frieza and Cooler were just mutant dickbags and we are the True Arcosian.
>>39812745Honestly hoping for something else than the classic shounen "transform when under the influence of great passions and/or loosing a fight" thing. It seems un-Arcosian. They are... Cooler than that.Maybe it could be some sort of quest to discover the lost heritage of our race? You know, find the records of the four grandmasters of the Arcosian Martial Art Schools, a pilgrimmage to the blasted field of asteroids that is all that remains of Planet Arcos, passing the trial of the Frozen Sun. That sort of stuff.
>>39812953I agree. Saiyans and humans are all about passion and rage.What if becoming a True Arcosian requires careful planning and the proper rituals and stimuli?Frieda and his father are just freaks who were handed power that they never earned and they are culturally ignorant to their people.Arctus should find the broken remnants of his people and save his race instead of faffing about like fake royalty.
>>39812745>>39812953>>39813183Arctus will not be earning his transformation/transformations as a Saiyan or a Super Human (Cooler fight Kaguya) does.Rage, Hatred, and the such. All of these can increase your power level for a short time, but they are not the key to unlocking a True Arcosian transformation.Have I mentioned that I'm not opposed to some waifu stuff in this so long as it doesn't overpower us to fuck? Have some class and we'll see how this might go. You are Royalty after all... technically.
>>39813508eh, i'm pushing >>39811917because girl arcosians not common.
>>39813580An interesting idea, but one that I will not be using. It comes down to my inexperience as a writer, but I don't trust myself to write a female lead character for a game like this.NPC stuff? Not a problem, but with only one rather bad experience of having a female MC in my writing, I'd rather not taint my first quest with such a thing, y'know?Maybe next time.Who said any female Arcosians were left? You'll have to find that one out on your ownMight be a bit early for it, but would you guys like me to set up a Dralo/Som style ask.fm for this quest?
>>39813580Eh, Arctus doesn't sound like a very female name to me.
>>39813746Aisu might have been a better name for a Female Arcosian, was one of the suggestions for a name originally .
>>39813508If we do get a waifu it must be someone who can at least keep up with us when we drinkOur Drunken Empress!
>>39813761Artica, Glacia and Blizzara might also work.
>>39810286Do you guys like this design more, or the one I have in the picture?Trying to customize Arctus just a bit to get a really nice look for him. I'm rather a fan of the side armor coming down on this one.
>>39813966And then I forgot the picture
>>39813995Looks nice, the armour on the side of the legs makes me think of knights, might be good inspiration for his transformation.
>>39813995I rather like the Elite Suit look, the one with the long shiny bits that hang off the waist and behind the legs. But maybe not for his base form, more like something for a future transformation if there are any.
>>39813692Ugh, please no waifu stuff. I wouldn't mind a love interest but this is a dbz themed quest, let's not forget the point is combat and discipline. One of the reasons I dropped SOM's initial dbz quest was due to harem pandering. Please do not make the same mistake.
