(not like that you perverts)Quick Learner: You learn fast, but really only if it interests you, whether because you truly enjoy it, passing fancy, or urgency.Down The Hatch: Although you are spoilt on good food, you still have no qualms about eating something that anyone else would deem unfit for human consumption. Rotten meat? Just cook it until it stops being rotten. Moldy bread? Cut off the bad parts. This may lead to eating actually dangerous things, and is as such as much a curse as a blessing.Glorious Hair: Your hair is glorious. This has no actual effect but making you feel good about yourself so long as you have it, and sad if it is either damaged, removed, or significantly dirtied.Temperature Tolerance: You grew up in Texas, where the weather was schizophrenic and your room was alternately the hottest in the house or coldest. This has no effect on physically damaging heat or cold, such as Frostbite or Fire>>Weaknesses:Socially Awkward: You spent most of your time in a book or on the computer, not talking. This has had a negative impact on general socialization.Compassionate: While being mean makes others feel bad, being mean makes you feel REALLY bad.Messed up Joints: Although this lets you do weird things like dislocate your arms and replace them without harm or much pain, it also means your left hip joint clicks like you're 80 and it's on your 3rd replacement. On rare occasions, it fails you when doing physical activity.Needs Glasses: You need fairly strong prescription glasses to see properly.>Class: BeastmasterYou are in touch with Nature and animals, but rather than peacefully coexist such as a druid, you bend it to your will and tame animals.>Inventory:0G 1S 5CLumber axe: A 2 handed axe made for chopping lumber, it is, however, more than sufficient for combat.Prescription glasses: Need them to see, you're probably done for if you lose these and can't adjust or get a new pair soon enough.Conductor's Hat: All that remains of your beloved Express. Stylish.Winter Clothes: Warm, thick clothing. Not as stylish as your hat, but they're sturdy and match so it's fine.>Ancestry and Notable Ancestors/Deceased RelativesDescended from clan McCullough (Meaning Son Of Boar) Of Scotland and Cutler McCullough, infamous Scottish Raider of IrelandDirect relations to Stephen F.

It also seems that corpses are the price for rituals, not necessarily actual murders in the monster's name. Also, weak is by Lovecraftian standards, meaning that anything up to a Shoggoth eating a large village's population or slaying a party of average adventurers is fair game.Sweet Ride: You possess any vehicle manufactured in the last century that only requires one person to drive. It is supernaturally durable, needs no fuel, and needs no maintenance. In addition, its passenger capacity and storage space are tripled, at no change to its size. Nobody will think it's weird unless you want them to. It can be enchanted and modified at no risk to its function.The power the Eldritch Express is such that it requires 220 lbs of assorted flammable material to move its current number of cars, and all who see it actually realize just how strange and important it is. Its passenger car siderooms and Conductor's cabin are at the height of modern luxury, complete with a bunk bed, TV, Stereo/radio system, a nightstand, coat/hatrack, and multiple consoles with assorted videogames and movies to watch and play. It has a combination Messhall/Kitchen/Medical car, as well as 2 storage cars, filled simple assorted logging tools and fuel logs at the moment.

>>3988892Huh, Symbolic Anti-Magic? (Or whatever you call it.)
>>3988904>>3988892Then QM bailed and Chase tried to run a thread. Everyone was a robot, and I left because he tried to turn me into a robot cat.I'm here because Shi's Ego is mountainous and might just protect his thread from me, as whenever my character is so much as introduced the thread seems to slowly collapse.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>3988749Well, let’s see what I get this time. I’m hoping for Golem Maker or My little Demon. A sorcerer needs his aides.
>>3988915Damn, one off, I guess I’m white Muhammad Ali now. Did any of you guys ever play Fight Night for the Xbox and PS2?
>>3988904Yeah, it's very useful when it comes to breaking down that kind of magical fuck up. We had a pretty decent adventure in the city of the gods: Devapura. Some gods pressganged into some organizations that were blatant imitations of ones from a subpar anime about some wizard chick pining after an autistic warrior girl. They then threw us into a wacky gladiatorial battle where we were forced to cut down our friends in front of a jeering crowd of bloodthirsty pagan deities. Fortunately, death has even less consequences than we previously thought, and the fallen were sentenced to a few hours in the isekai rec room.Then the winning yuri rip-off faction had a party where I flirted with a severely autistic guardian deity responsible for the flimsiest divinity suppression system ever, they were appalled by our drug trade and general chaotic alignment. Needless to say, I didn't score.After an awkward party where everyone but me tried to grind stats alone in their rooms like they did at every party they ever attended in life, we got marched down to the famous hole in the ground where everyone goes to fight endless trash mobs to get crystals to exchange for dosh in yet another reference to that lesbian sword show. After some combat that was so effortless that it wasn't even playable, Shi started casting spells. This proved to be the greatest threat the party had ever faced, as Shi repeatedly casted spells that had the potential to doom the entire party, and managed to kill four people in his arcane failures. He then was about to cast a spell that would get everyone killed, and I attempted to kill him, but fortunately he fucked up and turned himself into a rock. Then I used Death Perception(A cheat ability I smuggled through the suppresion system) to unrock him. Then he started bitching about it and likely activated the detection system. It was at this point the QM ditched, and not wanting to end it on a whimper, I used Death Perception to completely destroy the suppression system and lay waste to the city by releasing the true forms of all the divine residents.
>>3988842Yea I remember you. You can transfer your character from Multiplayer Isekai Quest (Mythic RPG). The one you and me we're in togather. >>3988830>Killer Instinct: The instincts of a killer have been drilled into your head +1RS for your attacks. You can find out the weakness of any creature by looking at them and activating your ability.>>3988918Fight night: You can make hardened bone growths protrude from your fists making your wrists as powerful as maces. You can challenge someone mid combat to a duel and you will get +1RS to fighting them and they will exclusively attack you. The more people you kill in duels the higher your RS bonus will become.
>>3988931This sounds like a better plot than most isekai anime.Then again, that's not a high bar to soar over.
>>3988936*Fists not wrists
>>3988931Oh, so when you form a drug empire it’s ok. But when I want to run a protection racket not to mention the other host of mafia-esque things I was setting up, I’m literally erased from existence with no warning, reasoning, or explaination behind it.Also update the thread man, I didn’t even get to kick the biggest guy in the yard in his rear axel.
>>3988936Oh so I’m just Knuckles, maybe I’ll be able to pull a Wolverine too.
>>3988936Can you show me mercy and let me re-roll my cheat too?I'll understand if you can't.

>>3988983> A priest getting the cheat "Seven Sins".Of course, it couldn't have been anything else.
>>3988941It was less of a drug empire and more Loki being a ditz and having an understanding of the drug trade that's based entirely on anime.I'm sorry about the quest but I don't think I'll be able to do anything with it. The whole project just had some foundational issues that would have become very apparent if it progressed any further, especially with the combat and plot progression. The whole setting would work better as a one character quest where I could knuckle down and get everything sorted for one character. Meter mechanics sort of grind the whole thing to a screeching halt with multiple players and I didn't really have any workable ideas to bridge the gap between some solid beginning and end points. I'm not saying this is the last you'll see of Tartarus though, I'll be running it as a more narrative focused traditional quest some time in the future once I fix up the system and setting.
>>3988984>Seven Sins: You can target someone and give them a debuff based on their most prominent of the seven deadly sins in them.
>>3988995OK, much more fitting than the first version.This sounds like a great way to stack debuffs on someone, especially in combination with "Killer Instinct".
>>3988985Can't you just drop the meter mechanics?
>>3988985That’s a shame, I’ll keep an eye out for your quest once you rework it. >>3988969Since I’d be better off fighting at a distance I might try a rework as well. Could you tell me what the subclasses are for the sorcerer?
>>3989011I let him reroll because he never had a cheat he just had his advance class that he chose instead of a cheat. I'm not gonna let you reroll.
>>3989016He had a stand though.
>>3989016Wait, I didn't have an advanced class.I had the cheat [Make a Stand].
>>3989016He had a cheat. His class was basic priest and he had a stand.
>>3989021>>3989019>>3989020To recap:I had a stand named [Speed Demon] which had the ability to manipulate the velocity of anything it touched.
>>3989024I think that's a better ability than Seven Sins to be honest. A lot more potential and versatility with a Stand in general.
>>3989021You already rolled for a cheat here. I wallowed pople wwho had cheats to reroll their cheats you did that. I'm at a Christmas party so i'll talk later.
>>3989030OK, I'll keep my old cheat/stand [Speed Demon[ to avoid confusion and you can object to my decision when you are less busy.
>>3989021Fight Night doesn't have to be used in melee. The duel function is actually pretty good for singling out targets at range and cucking melee fighters.
>>3989037What are the specifics of Fight Night anyway?Sorry, I'm not well versed in this.
>>3989030We both originally had cheats and refilled for them in order to fit within your system. Miracle and I went through the exact same process. He asked to reroll after he got Killer Insticnt and you allowed it. I don’t see how my case is any different from his.
>>3989042Most of Shi's cheats seem to be based in some form of grimdark/bodyhorror trope. Fight Night warps the hands into mauls for enhanced unarmed combat, as well as the psionic ability to compel enemies into single combat. A rather silly physical mutation in my opinion, but as it often is with cheats the secondary ability is much more valuable.
>>3989043In fact, I wasn’t asking for a reroll (though if I was, there shouldn’t be an issue) I asked for information on the subclasses>>3989037I was thinking about the bone fists/claws when I was speaking on the range issue. Shi would most likely only give me the +1 RS when I’m physically attacking, and drawing attention to myself by using the cheat can be emulated simply by pissing my target off. It’s not a bad cheat but it doesn’t fit well with with my playstyle, class, or stats. If I had to have it, I wouldn’t be likely to use it in a combat setting certainly not to it’s full capabilities at least.
>>3989052You're a rogue, right? Just use it to initiate combat with someone, then sneak attack for a massive RS to hit and damage.
>>3989052Well, you're only allowed to reroll on a duplicate cheat as per the previous system.
>>3989057That’s not how it works (or at least not how it will work) and I’m a sorcerer now. >>3989058Miracle got to reroll on a single cheat as seen here>>3988967>>3988969Also, as stated before, I was looking into subclasses. If Shi is playing things loose today because “it’s Christmas after all” I don’t see why I shouldn’t be allowed to benefit. My bullshit senses are tingling and I imagine that this won’t be handled well at all.
>>3989052It was a mistake to word it as a reroll and I'm sorry for any confusion that may have caused. Miracle rolled to get a new cheat here which I made available to everyone who had gotten a cheat in previous threads. Mark is the one who got killer instinct not Miracle. You can use magic and still activate the cheat, but you have to be at most 10 feet apart from your target to activate the cheat.
I find it funny (and a bit heart-wrenching) that my social life is so non-existent that I have nothing to do during Christmas.
>>3989074It was a mistake on my part as well, I thought Miracle got killer instinct and rerolled. Due to your wording when talking to Miracle, it sounded as if you were giving him some special privilege and the whole exchange confused me a little since rerolling for a cheat in this system should have been a given.
>>3989032You chose to lose your cheat you gained in the previous thread to get a new cheat. There are no take backs so your stuck with Seven Sins.
>>3989079Hey, at least you aren’t doing this on the toilet after eating too much food. Besides, we’re all in this together, We’re collaborative losers.
>>3989082Fair enough, Shi.This is a fresh start, looks like I can’t rely on old tactics.
>>3989070Then use performance-enhancing magic to gain that big RS to attack and damage.
>>3989070You could focus on self buffs and become a muscle wizard.
>>3989090>>3989091I’ll use that stuff for you guys. I’m far too creative and zany to go down such a route. Like I said before, I’m using this in an unconventional way.
>>3989097>always has some oddball build and gameplan>never gets to realize any of it before getting bootedThe tragedy of Terrance.
>>3989104Indeed. I suspect that either this thread will meet an untimely demise, or I will be disposed of in the most esoteric and nonesensical way possible.
>>3989110>Suddenly, rocks falling!
>>3989117>Chase destroyed the entire setting again!
>>3989117I imagine it will be much harder than something of that nature; I’m a low tier genius and a mid tier reality warper. If the QM ever wanted to be rid of me, he’ll have to either manipulate the system itself and one shot or seriously incapacitate me. His only other option would be to pull some excuse so deeply rooted in the far left field it may as well be located in the 5th demension.
>>3989123Or he could use his qm powers to have you carted out of the story with no input on your part.
>>3989130I’m not unknowingly breaking any nondescript rules this time but who knows. I’ve been screwed over while in far more favorable positions than this one.
>>3989141Any particular plans for this run? Are you going to take advantage of the political chaos to establish a criminal powerbase for yourself?
>>3989141>>3989152I Hope the deal with the covering half the world in ice and ruthlessly exploiting the other half isn't off
>>3989240What the fuck did you guys get up to while I was gone?
>>3989247The ice plan was something Terry was thinking about in our original quest, usurping that ice sorcerer to use his climate technology for organized crime.
>>3989249Ah, now I remember, good times.
>>3989152That all depends on this setting. Aside from stroking his ego, Shi hasn’t established much.>>3989240Eh, that plan somewhat hinged on draining the BBEG’s power to do so. Even with my newfound power I doubt I could pull it off without that factor. >>3989249I wasn’t using it for organized crime. I planned on restricting the empire’s access to the resources in the area, driving up prices and allowing me to establish colonies and trading posts in my newly frozen over domain.
>>3989276Remember Terry, I know an eldritch entity that would just LOVE to help out. He might take it a bit far though, be warned.
>>3989324Are you able to keep your cheats? Since you have a class and two cheats now, I think things might change on your end. As for the ice wizard itself, I’ll need to have more information before I set my mind on a goal.
>>3989402He said I keep my cheats, and I can only presume my class is kept.
>>3989402You can keep your old cheats or get new ones, and I doubt Jack is going to give up The Express, Probably a good move in general, as Shi's cheats generally aren't as good. Their aesthetic is on point though.
>>3989412“Will something happen to him?” We ask.“No,” the QM says “no, he gets away.”>>3989415I was referring to the fact that he had a class and two cheats.
>>3989422He has a weaker blessing class, as opposed to a cheat class like ours. He's a beastmaster, which to my memory only has a few limited and defined abilities, as opposed to something like Warrior that gives big stat buffs as well as supernatural omnidiciplinary fighting skill.I don't think Jackson of all people is getting hit with a nerf.
>>3989429I’m surprised that the word nerf is even in your vocabulary considering what went down in the last thread. I was rolling just by reading your stat sheet alone and don’t get me started on the cheat smuggling or I might burst into a laughing fit.
>>3989429I wonder, do Lovecraftian abominations, despite their intelligence, count as animals?
>>3989446Hey, I'm the first to admit that everything about me is absurdly overpowered in this quest. I have no idea what op was thinking when he wrote Death Count.>>3989456Humans are animals too. Congratulations, you unlocked the Slaver advanced class.
>>3989462I’m not even talking about that. Many of your stats went up a level or two and you gained new skills between threads as well.
>>3989462Thing is, OP is such an edgelord he'd allow it. Shit. Well, I now have a last resort if summoned and hired labor doesn't work out.
Good morning lads.
>>3989665You’re up early. I wonder how many people will be online today?
>>3989701I am here.
>>3989701>>3989726Then again, I'm in Britain so it's only 15:00 for me.
>>3989726>>3989728Alright, so we have three so far and only two unaccounted for. I hope Shi runs tomorrow if not today.
Joining is closed.
>>3989761Does that mean updates will occur?
Updates will occur today I'm putting you character sheets into google docs right now and we will begin after I've finished.
Mark and Chase decide who has trick fears you both listed it as one of your items.
>>3989867He gave me Trickfears and an Exceptional Dagger. I forgot to list the dagger on my sheet though.
>>3989874Ok i'll add those items to your character sheet.
Google docs is a bitch, but i finally have the sheets done. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UFQyvp-hR7hTmFxdo_a3RKTX-dxWeyUcWsAw9ajPum4/edit?usp=sharing
>>3989963Tell me if I wrote anything wrong on there.
>>3989966Some syntax aside, my willpower should be high and I no longer have high lockpicking or pickpocketing skills. This one is on me, but I should note that unacceptable doesn’t activate if a person’s job requires them to help me or if they have something to gain from working with me.
Terry, Chase, Owen. Jackson, Mark, and Miracle are surrounded in blinding light. When it stops they find themselves in a desert. The heat is scorching and the dunes vast. They can see vultures nearby circling what looks like a caravan. Upon closing inspection, it looks as if a battle is taking place between mercenaries and gnolls. The mercenaries are well equipped with iron armor and weapons and look well trained, but they’re small in number. On the complete opposite end, the gnolls use primitive weapons and next to no battle tactics, but their overwhelming numbers are enough to turn the tide of battle. What do you do?
>>3989986>I get comfortable on a dune to sit back and watch while conjuring a pitcher of lemonade and a few plastic cups“Anyone want some?”

If that carravan fails I'm going to laugh though, there's no excuse for losing to fucking gnolls of all things.I idly spectate the battle and note the flow of combat as advantages and weaknesses shift from moment to moment.

>>3989986So is this all we're getting?
>>3990145I'm writing the fluff right now. I was playing Skyrim.
>>3990145I hope not but honestly, multiplayer mythic quests don’t have the best record when it comes to the lifetimes of its QMs.
I was waiting for everyone to post, so I played a bit of Skyrim.
>>3990156You should probably just set up a time window for people to post. Something like an hour or so after you update sounds fair. If you wait for everyone to post every time you do an update this thing is going to crawl. As much as I enjoy bantering with you fine fellows, we’re here to play.
Rolled 81, 55, 96, 35, 21, 42, 74, 69, 63, 24, 82, 73, 60, 81, 30, 79, 19, 8, 13, 81 = 1086 (20d100)>>3989986Start taking of winter clothes and squint on the vultures suddenly with deathly intent. Activate killer instinct

>>3990198>>3990229It seems you two have the curse as well.
>>3990229Should it not be there, I join Terry.
>>3990243Oh now you want that lemonade which definitely isn’t showing up because I rolled an 87. Also how are we gonna fuel the train out here?
>>3990252Gnoll corpses in the boiler room
>>3990265Eh, that’ll definitely ruin your radiator over time.
>>3990272Well, corpses *do* burn.And I have an unspecified amount o stored wood logs in the cars.
>>3990276Jackson I know you’re trying to hold on but we need to face the facts. As much as it pains me to tell you this, we’re going to have to scrap the train for parts.
>>3989986The battle between the gnolls and the mercenaries rages on. The vast swarm of gnolls ripping apart the mercenaries limb by limb and feasting on their intestines. The mercenaries try to steady their blades but the sight of so many chomping maws sends them into a panic. They only manage to kill a few of the horde. >>3989994Terry tries to sit down on the sand, but the sand slips underneath him and he falls on his back. After he sits up he manages to summon a pitcher of lemonade and some plastic cups. He then says to the party “Anyone want some?” >>3990010Chase ties his jacket around his waist and tries to sit down, but slips and starts falling down the sand dune towards the carnage.>>3990122Owen barely manages to slip by the carnage unnoticed. When he enters the first wagon he sees women tied and bound. He notices bruises and scars on their bodies. A red-haired woman speaks up and says “Please help us, we don’t wanna be eaten alive. We don’t have much to offer you, but I’m sure you could collect the transportation money. Please, anything is better than the torture those gnolls will put us through.”>>3990024Miracle carefully studies the mercenaries battle tactics he manages to see through the waves of gnolls and observes that they are using hoplite units to hold back the incoming gnolls while archers in the back pick them off. Miracle fails to see their sins, as the gnolls tear apart the mercenaries it’s hard to tell what personalities they had.
>>3990198Mark takes off his winter clothes and uses his killer instinct on the vultures. Killer Instinct: Vultures can be lured easily by bait like fresh meat or corpses.>>3990276Jackson tries to grab Larry, but the leopard slips out his grasp and says “I’m not a carry-on I can walk on my own.” Jackson jumps unto the train.
There were 8 mercenaries and 27 gnolls at first, but now there are only 4 mercenaries and 23 gnolls left.
Rolled 44, 89, 76, 50, 90, 5, 2, 39, 25, 1, 54, 35, 59, 19, 9, 39, 53, 19, 89, 74 = 871 (20d100)>>3990296Apologies Larry, but you're not wearing shoes and I've been on the beach enough to know that standing on sand without shoes for too long really hurts, so hop inside the train before you start hopping like you're on a tin roof."I ask around If we should do something. Because what I can do is limited to Rip and Tear in such a manner as to have Doomguy give a thumbs up for the effort, toot the horn and attempt to stop the violence, or run them over.
>>3990307Wait, I forgot my action.I want to inventory fuel for the train.
>>3990292I slash the restraints on the women with my claws and say,"I may look like a monster but i'm not one, get to safety and fast." i hand the redhead my rusty dagger and say,"You go free the other woman if there is more in the other wagons, if not then just run." i jump out of the wagon and leap into the fighting, slashing mercs and gnolls alike whenever i can.

>>3990324Dude both sides are fucking evil the mercs are slavers and the gnolls want to fuckin eat them
>>3990324>98I guess my faith wasn’t strong enough.
>>3990327sad boi hours
>>3990327>>3990324I just realised there’s an 100 in there!Also, Shi, can I target multiple people with “Seven Sins”?
Rolled 4 (1d5)>>3990330This how many people you can currently affect and target with your cheat at once. You can increase this number with training/increasing your knowledge of the bible.
>>3990343Well 4 out of 5 isn’t bad for a starting point. I’m guessing I can above 5 with training, correct?
Rolled 45, 43, 84, 72, 7, 89, 19, 30, 50, 58, 54, 66, 80, 96, 61, 3, 16, 42, 37, 11 = 963 (20d100)>>3990296I start using my bow on the gnolls with my killer instincts activated.Also i take a lemonade cause its hot as FUUUUUCK
>>3990344The more individuals you affect at a time the weaker the effect becomes. Your training will increase the effect of your power and increase the maximum people you can affect at a time.
I'll update alot more tomorrow. I didn't have time today because I was trying to make the sheets. Good Night.
>>3990389Early to bed, early to rise...Goodnight.
>>3990323No, just doing some practice. If we have something to gain from the mercs, I’ll help them out. Likewise with the gnolls.
>>3990292So are we using rolls for every insignificant action? If so, processing is going to take forever. Seriously, "roll to sit down"?
>>3990432Shit, it let me summon that lemonade. I won’t complain. Playing mythic is like making a wish, you have to word your posts carefully. Sometimes you need to pad your post or strip it to get results.
>>3990432That was your main action in that post. I gotta roll for at least one action.
Rolled 23, 60, 61, 29, 4, 28, 13, 57, 32, 89, 35, 43, 6, 78, 41, 83, 50, 48, 82, 64 = 926 (20d100)>>3990440You could have checked my ability to follow the battle instead of my ability to sit down. Anyways, as long as I'm currently in a marginally more dangerous position due to the presence of gnolls, I'll draw Hitoshi and cleave into the greatest concentration of gnolls in an attempt to scatter them and break their resolve. Instead of focusing on my vision, I'll rely on Death Perception to guide my blade around dozens of unskilled opponents.
>>3990452I sob with fury ever time you pull out an auxiliary function from your cheat out of nowhere regardless of any prestablished boundaries. Holler if you need any assistance.
>>3990471The defining features of Death Count are infinite applications and zero limitations. It's like an anime where everyone just makes up their powers as they go along.
Come to think of it, Death Perception is much more reliable as a sense than anything else. All information is instinctually understood and always correct, no conscious thought is needed to confirm and act on any sensory input. All actions can be taken without hesitation in the context of perfect information. Compare that to something like eyes which can be easily overwhelmed by sensory overload, damage, obstruction, and even illusions.
>>3990489>>3990497I just might kill you out of pure spite, but for now I need to throw a wild tantrum. I won’t be on for a few hours.
>>3990499The weak should fear the strong.Speaking of massacres, how many people died in Devapura that fateful night mr. Hito? I should know for obvious reasons.
>>3990499If you're having a tantrum now, what I have planned for the future might just give you a fatal aneurysm.
>>3990506>>3990524I’m not really scared, I could’ve killed you in at least a dozen ways and that was before my class change. In actuality, I’m more amused at the absurdity of it all rather than enraged. I can only imagine what foolishness you’ll slide by the radars once you get the chance but I’ll be looking toward to it.
>>3990524>>3990452Jesus Christ Chase, my thoughts on acquiring a memetic weapon using Strange Aeons are more reasonable than this.By definition, all your cheat does is tell you, without fail and with maximum clarity, what something's weaknesses are and knowledge of how to exploit them. It does *not* give you the technical proficiency with which to exploit them.For example, it would tell you that a vampire requires a stake in their heart to go down, but you wouldn't be any more capable of performing the action than if you simply had foreknowledge of that weakness. For another example, Symbolic antimagic wouldn't do shit if you couldn't properly draw the appropriate runes. That's why Warrior was such a good choice of class, it gave you the stats and skills necessary to make the most of it.
>>3990546At this point he may as well rename his cheat “Automatic Disassembler” it works on so many levels.
>>3990452Why is your blade named after the op?
>>3990546The way I see it, there are different scales of weaknesses. Let's use the vampire example, one weakness on a physical scale is fire vulnerability. That is an intrinsic weakness of the vampire tied to it's nature. It has that racial weakness but it also has other weaknesses based in less concrete and observable things. Let's say for instance, that this vampire overcommits on swordswings and has difficulty recovering after a miss because of it. For a fighter of my skill, such a vulnerability can be exploited by baiting an attack and then swiftly countering. That's an example of a weakness that wouldn't be apparent just with foreknowledge of what a vampire is. This is the kind of thing I'm doing with the gnolls, instinctively perceiving the flaws in their offense and defense and acting on it with instinctual muscle memory so I can cut through them as quickly and efficiently as possible. For the sake of convenience, I'll call this technique Death Waltz.
>>3990562It's kanji for "Equal". I was going to name it "Equalizer" but I realized "Equal" was Shi's name in reverse which I thought was pretty cute.
>>3990571Apologies, but"I draw Hitoshi and cleave into the greatest concentration of gnolls in an attempt to scatter them and break their resolve. Instead of focusing on my vision, I'll rely on Death Perception to guide my blade around dozens of unskilled opponents."Sounds like some anime bullshit, as if you are attempting to cut down swathes of gnolls with your Dynasty Warrioresque swings, rather than the logical, thought out use of your cheat that you just said. As was said earlier, Shi running Mythic is like taking wishes from a genie, You need to be real fucking specific and lengthy or very concise to not fall on your ass. What your action looked like was some badly thought out Anime Shit(tm).
>>3990582I think it's pretty clear what I mean. The reason why it sounds like anime bullshit, because it is. I didn't ask for this, but my skillset is about as chunni as it gets, absurd katana and all. I prefer to write my actions more from a roleplay perspective rather than a mechanical process I'm inputting into a computer, that means I need to trust on some level that the recipient has some ability to infer and interpret information. If Shi through malice or ignorance interprets my actions incorrectly, fine it's not a big deal. I'm still going to give him some basic respect by not insulting his intelligence with a patronizingly overelaborated input. At the end of the day, I just want to make a halfway worthwhile story.
>>3990571You only have the knowledge of how to execute an action not the instincts to do so. Muscle memory or instincts is built up for repetition of an action not the knowledge needed to do an action. You're like a highly skilled piano player playing a new piece. You have the skills to execute the sheet music and you know what to do, but you don't have built up the muscle memory to automatically perform the action. You still have to think about what you're doing.
>>3990591Ah, I se what you mean. I possess every tool I need but lack the experience of actually performing in the way I desire to. Perhaps this could be a new skill for me to develop. Death Waltz: Miniscule perhaps? I definitely need more practice before I can really let loose, but Hitoshi should carry me through easily enough. From a weapons perspective I have the definite advantage, what are gnolls to a blade that can cleave stone after all?
>>3990590Fair enough.Goodnight, it's currently tomorrow.
>>3990574Tune in next week on: Linguistics with Chase K>>3990591You’ve only slown his rise to Grand Master of Anime Bullshit.>>3990606Hey now, I expect a royalty check for that.
>>3990647I'm going to rise through the ranks of courtly intrigue until I become the Minister of Anime Bullshit and finally earn a fedora to go with my hoodie and inexplicable magic katana. Seriously, what the fuck is up with the properties of this thing? When it clashed with the stone, instead of the usual spark and bang that accompanies katana abuse it had some weird energy field and made an explosion that wasn't even close to being centered on the point of impact. This thing definitely isn't made with traditional setetsu, and the magnetic stuff definitely doesn't cut like it either. It's more like an idea of a sword than a real blade.
>>3990670>It's more like an idea of a sword than a real blade.I’ve seen enough Fate shit to see where this is going.
Sorry to drop off here guys, but I don't enjoy being the QM. Someone else can take over if they want. The setting of this country is a desert nation that produces high-value minerals and luxury goods. There was going to be slave mining camps, slave brothels, and other shit. You can copy and paste the character sheets into your own google doc/.
>>3990863I am very ashamed of you Shi, your mother would be ashamed as well if she saw this. Giving up on a commitment so easily when so many were depending on you is very unbecoming. An exceptional individual wouldn’t behave this way. I hope you won’t continue on like this in the future.
>>3990863Well, since I called it earlier I can’t say I’m surprised.>>3990882Funny, but you flaked earlier this week as well. In any case could you possibly run this given that this system would be much easier for you to work with?
>>3990863Forget this post. I'll continue, I like doing this quest I was just limiting myself too much.
>>3990908A heroic second wind?
>>3990882>>3990976I am disappointed in your choice of cereal, Chase.Raisin Bran is the Cereal to rule them all.
>>3990908You come off as a confident leader, not someone who limits himself. You are made to be a QM.
>>3990908Good on you Shi
>>3990292The mercenaries try to fight back, but the numbers advantage the gnolls have is too much for them. Again half of their men are ripped to shreds while only a handful of gnolls die. Among the crowd of gnolls, one looks noticeably bigger than the rest.>>3990307Jackson says to Larry “Apologies Larry, but you're not wearing shoes and I've been on the beach enough to know that standing on sand without shoes for too long hurts, so hop inside the train before you start hopping like you're on a tin roof." Larry jumps onto the train. Jackson takes inventory of the fuel and finds 153 pounds of wood logs. Not enough to fuel the train, but it’s a good start. >>3990314Terry says “Those guys are getting torn up, how useful do you think they’d be to us if we bothered saving them?” He then tries to make a spiked forcefield, but he fails as he cannot gather enough mana to cast such a powerful spell. >>3990313Owen slashes the restraints on the woman with his claws and says, "I may look like a monster but I’m not one, get to safety and fast." He then hands the redhead his rusty dagger and says, "You go free the other woman if there is more in the other wagons, if not then just run." The red-haired women look shaken by his appearance, but she nods and runs off to free the other women. Owen rushes into the fray claws slashing. He manages to hit gnoll A and gnoll B who now both suffer -2RS damage. Seven gnolls try to rip apart Owen like they did the mercenaries. They try to get at his flesh through the chains, but all but one fails. Owen suffers -1RS damage. You overhear one of the gnolls saying “We end fight quick and go to the camp. No like our lord angry.” Suddenly a dark force shrouds the biggest gnoll his eyes turn crimson red and his coat black. What looks like hardened blood sprouts from his fists. A booming voice in the sky says “Take my blessing and kill them all or I’ll boil you all alive.”>>3990324Miracle prays to his god and says “My Lord above, act as the sufferers Saviour and give us help in vanquishing great evil.” His god is disgusted that he would ask him to help slavers. Miracle suffers -1RS on all priestly spells and miracles for 2 turns. >>3990452Chase activates death perception and constantly changing information floods into his mind despite this he can find the optimal place to attack as many opponents as possible. He manages to strike 8 gnolls with one attack leaving them seriously wounded and one dead. Only 3 gnolls are brave enough to strike back, but Chase effortlessly moves out of the way of their attacks. Gnoll D, E, F, H, I, J, K, suffer -2RS damage. Gnoll G dies. There are 2 mercenaries and 20 gnolls left

>>3991195On what, the Yeenoghu?
>>3991224>>3991224Yeah, he seems to be the spiritual heart of this rabble, their version of a paladin. If he falls, the rest will crumble. Concentrating on the Yeen will increase the potency of the debuff. Considering that it's a warband leader and chosen of some god of slaughter, its debuff should be Wrath based and if my theory is correct it should become unable to fight back under the effects of your ability.
>>3991195My intent is to rattle them with the earsplitting horn, which should scare the lesser ones, especially so if the Yee gnoll drops.
>>3991185>>3991250Good thing I said to target the Yeenoghu if it’s alive.The debut stack should disable it but be careful you don’t get caught my Gnolls or bad rolls.
>>3991293>debutAuto-correct, what the fuck. But you know what I mean.
>>3991293I'm betting that once I cleave the beast apart the gnolls will get the point. My cut should cause it to bleed out rather rapidly.
>>3991074So are we getting another update tonight?
>>3991352It was a mistake to try and do horde combat. I gotta finish Terry's action and then do Miracles.
>>3991365Well if we don’t split the party (and you don’t run off) you’ll have to deal with such things fairly often.
>>3991365I would recommend stating hordes as singular entitys that take casualties instead of damage, and break up after their morale collapses.
>>3991392That won’t really alleviate things if you’re not doing AOE. People like Mark, Jackson, and Owen will be taking out one to two people more often than not. Unless Shi made it so that all enemies die in one hit during horde battles, he’s still going to be feeling the strain.
>>3991074The last renaming mercenaries in a brilliant display of courage or stupidity rush their opponents. The weakened gnolls don’t stand a chance and 6 of them are impaled by the spears. The mercenaries succumb to their wounds and die. Mercs DEAD, 14 gnolls left, -2RS Gnoll A, B, K. >>3991092Owen coats his claws in the poison, he then tries jumping on the back of the biggest gnoll, but almost falls off as the creature turns to see what’s on it’s back. He then starts stabbing his claws into the creature. The creatures Hide is incredibly tough and the blood underneath it hard as stone despite this Owen manages to pierce through both and hit tissue. The poison act’s immediately taking a toll on the gnoll’s health. Alpha Gnoll -3RS. The Alpha Gnoll tries to impale Owen on a spear of its own hardened blood but misses.>>3991131Chase says to the beast "Your lord will see no more tribute this day, face the ignoble death of a worthless beast!" "VLTIMA SECARE!" The beast turns to face Chase. Chase feints a thrust before spinning on his front foot to preserve his momentum and tries to slash at the beast’s shoulder, but he falls flat on his face and misses his target. The beast frothing at the mouth yells “DIE PUNY HUMAN” and smashes his fist into Chase’s rib cage. Chase suffers -1RS damage. The gnolls seizing the opportunity attack Chase all at once. Gnoll A and K break their weapons when they miss their attack against Chase. 2 of the gnolls manage to hit chase in the rib cage with their battle-axes. Chase suffers -2RS. Chase succumbs to his wounds and is knocked out. >>3991150Jackson toot’s the horn on his train. This unearthly abomination of a sound frightens many of the gnolls 4 runoff and of that 4, 2 of them drop the gold on them and beg the party not to kill them. 4 gnolls run away from the battle. >>3991163Terry manages to summon a forcefield sphere with spikes. He launches it towards the horde of gnolls and his friends. The sphere of spikes runs over Chase’s body. Chase takes -1RS damage. The spiked ball impales and flattens the gnolls. All weaker gnolls suffer -1RS damage. A and B get knocked out. Gnoll K dies. The Alpha Gnoll moves out of the way of the attack. >>3991185Miracle uses Seven sins on the Alpha Gnoll. Its eyes become pure red, foam pours out of its mouth, and it begins to scream “DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE.” Blood seeps from its wounds and begins to take the form of a gigantic greatsword in his hands. It screams “YOU WILL DIE, HUMANS, MY CHEAT WILL END YOU ALL”Mercs DEAD, 6 gnolls left and 1 alpha gnoll. Chase knocked out -4RS damage. Owen -1RS damage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6BbvCC0VI0
>>3991419Why did you make me use two rolls on one action?
>>3991427One was to get the attention of the Alpha Gnoll. The other was to attack.
>>3991419Wouldnt i have gotten healed from shanking the big boi?
>>3991434Well it wasn't my intention to count that as an action, especially considering that it didn't have any mechanical effect.
>>3991435I forgot about that abilty you're at full health.
>>3991440Well you posted it as an action so I'm going to take it. The mechanical affect was the lead up to to the feint which gave you a +1RS to hit.

Also how dying works is every time you succumb to your wounds your toughness goes down a rank when it reaches weak you die or if they crit you die.
>>3991419"Larry, watch the train. You can chill on my chair, just don't let them get in here."I grab my Axe, readjust my hat, strip off my shirt and jacket so as not to dirty them, and run after the lesser Gnolls, covering my body in bone and sprouting tentacles, of which are covered in bone shards and spikes. I attempt to kill as many Gnolls as possible.
>>3991419>“YOU WILL DIE, HUMANS, MY CHEAT WILL END YOU ALL”The Alpha Gnoll has a Cheat?! Shit, we have to treat him as a very serious threat!Somebody has to recover Chase, I’ll do it if no-one else does.
>>3991509On another note, shouldn’t “Seven Sins” be a debuff? I don’t think him getting a Great-sword made of his blood is a debuff. Unless his rage makes him unfocused but even then.
>>3991514Wrath fills your opponent with such rage that they cast away self preservation. So they will take actions that could risk their life. The power of this effect increases when you crit. That's all I'm going to say.

>>3992994If the negative RS piles up you’re going down, no questions asked. When you attack an NPC, you never see them roll for their survival because it all about how hard or how many times you’ve struck them.
>>3992884maintaining i mean fuck
>>3993017Fair enough, I was just wondering why It wasn't one of my rolls taken, as there clearly was a roll for survival.
>>3993077Yeah, in all my time of playing this I’ve only had to roll for survival and even then I wasn’t rolling for that specifically, it just came up due to the circumstances around me rather than combat.

I tell them to expect this.
>>3994657I was under the impression that the train disappeared when Jackson died, but if it's operational I'll put her up on one of the beds.
>>3994746I died, but I'm fine. Arcane Resurrection is a thing, thank God.
>>3994764Be grateful, usually the most arcanes can do is a twisted mockery of life, calling into existence a mindless beast that resembles you in mangled body only. You better thank your lucky stars that Shi has a wizard fetish.
>>3994736“Happy to help, and take out all the monsters with no help whatsoever.”
>>3994770I just did>>3994772"I tried Terry, it's why you just had to rip me from what appeared to be Asphodel. It's also why you have my debt. It's also why I'm going to pester anyone who listens for combat training."

>>3994772"Hey i did shit!"
>>3994787"I tried but like... Then we hopped universes. and to be fair, I managed to do absurdly well over there, you should have seen me in the ring at the adventurers guild. Apparently Gnolls are... very competent at hacking through bone."
>>3994796You would have done better had you stuck to your eldritch weapons. Your axe skill is shit.
>>3994794“I’m joking man, I can’t take all of the credit. You did good work freeing the prisoners and taking out the big guy.”>>3994796“Yeah, I feel as if I’ve been stretched across multiple worlds and continuities as well. It’s kind of weird how unstable these dimensions are, and even stranger we always seem to travel to the next one together. As for the fighting, I wouldn’t worry, all it takes is a bit of planning and you could wreck shop with ease.”

>>3994811Wish they saved some corpses. I know some... Interesting creatures I could get ahold of.
>>3994835I gave you avearge in all eldritch weapons. I consider everyone who has natural weapons cheats to have average in those abilities.

>>3994846Oh, neat. Didn't get that from before. I'll make sure to hone my skills further.>>3994818Chase, you up to get training?
>>3994858Sure. Woodcutting or calamari?
>>3994864Both. More of the former than the latter, because I do need some way of fighting that doesn't terrify everyone.
>>3994867"With Terry shooting arcane energy, my brother flailing about with his claws, and my apparent ability to hit eight people with one slash, I don't think a couple of tentacles and pincers are going to tip the scales when it comes to SAN damage. You need to build on what you have if you want to avoid anymore trips to Elysium."Roman numerals briefly flash across my eyes as I size up your abilities."Mastering your ability to generate limbs and weapons from your body should trivialize most combat, as any defense could be easily overpowered, and any offense easily blocked under your onslaught. By nature, there are very few weapons that would be effective against you, bludgeoning and piercing damage would be laughably useless, and most slashing weapons simply don't have an appropriate blade for the task. That said, thick, curved blades, such as a khopesh or skimitar could slice through your tentacles with ease. I recommend applying additional chitin and bone to your offense in this situation."I draw Hitoshi. "You're fine with training right now right? Your objective will be to overwhelm my defense and knock me prone."

Have fun transcending humanity though.">>3994983"Oh sure, I'll cut them down for you"I slice each wrecked carriage into easily carryable segments that can fit into the fuel bay with Hitoshi. Normally this would be a moderate abuse on the blade, but with it's preternatural properties it can cleanly slice through the material.
>>3995017I would like to point out that my main action here is cutting the carriages and not sitting down, or getting the carriages' attention.
>>3995017"Make sure to load them in the back, They've already burned themselves enough corpses to power us for a few days and fire doesn't take its time in burning."

From now on, just about anything you ask, you will get." He then tells the ladies to help him store wagons in the train for store fuel, he says he will be using his monster ability. At first, the women are good with this arrangement, but when the otherworldly monster tentacles sprout from him they freak out and hide behind Terry for safety. Jackson with his expert wood chopping skills manages to collect 144 pounds of wood. The Eldritch Express now has 297 units of fuel, enough to move its current number of cars. >>3995002Will Mark’s ancestors grant him the power to manipulate fire?Difficulty high, acting rank above averageRoll 27Answer yesMark mediates to his ancestors inside one of the cabins of the train. He asks them to grant him the power to manipulate fire as the great fire emperor did. Mark feels a warm sensation in his chest and when he goes to put out the candles he used for the mediation they burn out by themselves before he could put them out. Pyrokinesis rank weak gained! Mark tries making a spark of fire in his hands. A small flame appears, but the sensation in his chests turns from warm to burning hot as if he was being cooked from the inside out. The flame grows bigger and bigger a face appears in it and looks as if it was laughing at him. He passes out from a heat stroke. When he awakes he feels as if his abilities with weapons have decreased. When he goes to talk to one of the slave girls he can no longer instinctively tell the what the best way to kill her would be. Instead, an almost instinctive attunement to flames replaces the instincts he has lost. When he tries to recreate the flames that appeared in his hand before. A bright hearty flame is created in his palms. Instead of feeling burned his chests relaxed, as if rested next to a calm, warm fireplace on a cold winter night. Pyrokinesis rank raised to below average! Fire resistance gained! Cheat burn baby burn gained! Cheat Killer Instinct Lost!>>3995017How many pounds of wood do they gain from Chase cutting them to appropriate size?Roll1d80Roll 79Chase uses Death Count to see the weaknesses of the wood. With this, he can calculate the perfect angle and size to cut each piece of wood. They gain 79 pounds of wood from having to waste virtually none of the wood. The Eldritch Express now has 376 units of fuel, enough to move its a current number of cars.
>>3995002>Burn baby burn: You can summon flames from hell. You can control how hot flames are and manipulate them at will. Flames under your manipulation have the potential to burn through anything. The more you train with your pyrokinetic abilities the hotter the flames you control can become and the more you can bend the flames to your will. You gain resistance to fire damage

Seeing as you're hiding behind him for safety, and he thinks I'm alright, I recommend you get to chopping and hauling the wreckage of the carriages, or we may well not get to the nearest town should an obstacle come up or we have to stop."I continue chopping wood, so long as Chase has no objection. I'd wager there's a full ton of fuel in the form of a wrecked carriage, and there's at least one.
>>3995233Does this mean we can throw Mark in the fire and, since he can't die from fire and is resistant to it, be an ever-burning fuel source? Just postulating, would never do that without Mark's permission.
>>3995239Now you're thinking with grimdark!
>>3995238I'm pretty sure that was the last of the wood unless Shi says otherwise.
>>3995239He is only resistant to flame not immune. He adds another +2RS to his armor when being attacked with fire damage. Though even if he was immune the flame wouldn't burn him so he would just be sitting in the furnace.
>>3995238You have already destroyed the carriages and took the wood for fuel you can't collect any more wood.
>>3995249No, the point I'm making is that although he can take damage, he can't actually *DIE* from fire. So he would be burned to ash, come back to life, and be burned again, wash rinse repeat ad infinitum in an extremely painful process.

>>3996137I’m pretty sure that we can buff anything as long as it doesn’t permanently affect the stats of PCs or NPCs
>>3996212I assumed Siggy meant a temporary buff to boost his cleansing spell.
>>3996288I’m not the QM here, I’m not dealing in interpretations, I’m just stating what I know.
>>3995842I mean I kinda changed roles for that one fight but I'm usually gonna be slicing up nerds from the shadows and then creepily giggling to myself afterwards, that fight was basically me just testing out my new cheat
>>3996137You can't buff stats that affect your ability to cast spells. This is stop spell casters from increasing their spell stat to infinty. They would do this by casting increase wisdom. Then once their spell stat is increased they would cast an even stronger spell stat increase. They would keep doing this to infinty intill they can cast god level spells.
>>3996317Inb4: Super Saipan Chase exploits this very specific wording and finds a way to exponentially buff every physical stat he has.
>>3996336Took the words right out of my mouth. I will develop strength based chi casting to give myself exponential physical enhancement so I can pick up the entire omniverse and break it over my knee.
>>3996339Chase you better chill before Shi decides he would rather not have you break his quest
>>3996339You can’t even resist.>>3996344I wouldn’t worry about him. Every QM let’s him slide when he does this sort of thing.

I’m feeling pretty sick so I’m dropping off for the night.
>>3996483No one else is training so you're just hyping yourself.
>>3996527He's hyping up his ancestors.
>>3996531That he is.
>>3996317How about something like Owl's wisdom that doesnt stack. My god Odin is god of wisdom.
>>3996760Doesn't stop the loop hole I described. You can cast increase wisdom, but I will go off your orginal wisdom for spell casing.
>>3996949I was right Shi. You seem to be a good Qm, with the attitude of "sure why not" or "yes but...". And it seems like you won't flake, so I wish the best to your endeavors.
>>3996949And so the power leveling begins. We’ll have this place cleaned out by next week.
>>3997020What is your goal, and what is your plan?
>>3997061I’m just along for the ride right now. Whenn I learn more about the setting, I’ll come up with something.
>>3997061>>3997074This means we have no plans
>>3997082That sounds like the best plan.
>>3997074>>3997082>>3997174The plan is to get one of the former slaves that know directions and have them bring us to the nearest town.
>>3997074You guys could allways just ask the slave girls about the setting.
>>3997264No where’s the fun in that? It would be practical to ask for information on the general area, but having a wealth of information on the setting at this point would feel cheap and ironically limiting.
>>3997285To be fair, they were slaves. They probably know only the most general information, unless a few were house slaves for wealthy people.
>>3997264I don't have the social skills to talk to the slaves or anyone else in the train. But, noticing their bruised and scarred body, I heal them. Also, if Chase and Jackson are not fully healed, I heal them.

He finds some nice brown rags that could conceal his whole body, but when grabs them he feels something round around his grasp. He tries to get a better grip on the cloth by squeezing the round thing, but he hears a gasp coming from above him. When he looks up a blushing 19 year looks down at him with a horrified expression on her face.

After all, are aboard, He speaks over the P.A "All passengers and staff please make their way to a side room in the forwardmost car. If you know the directions to the nearest town, please come forward to the cabin, so we don't starve in the desert." None of the slave girls comes forward. There is a long pause of silence until Jackson says to “Terry can you get on of the girls to come over.” Terry approaches Alina. Alina’s face turns from disgust at the monster Jackson to pure happiness at the sight of Terry. When Terry walks over and tells her what he needs, she takes hold of his hand and walks with him to the front of the train. She then says to Jackson “Ah yes well, we have been going North East for about two days from the last town we passed through.” She then looks at a compass in her hands. “She points and says if we got that way southwest for two days we should arrive in Nizbevi. I don’t know much about that place other than it has control over some expensive spices.”>>3995842Can Terry carry a bunch of heavy metal armor.Difficulty high, acting rank averageRoll 94 answer no.Terry tries to carry as much metal armor as he can hold, but the weight is too much for him so he falls on the sand.

Training difficulty decreased -1RS difficulty. A small wisp of orange flame appears in Mark’s palm he slowly increases the size of the flame. This proves a difficult task, but he keeps going focusing more of his mind into the growth of the flame. Eventually, it gets big enough to the point he has to put it out.

>>3998032I'm sick of all this "Critical Sorcery" bullshit that's going on in the Mythic system right now. Katanas deserve better than that. Much, much better than that.I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine katana in Shuji for 2,400,000 copper coins (that's about $20,000) and I have been practicing with it for almost 2 weeks now. I can even cut statues of solid limestone with my katana.Shuji smiths spend centuries working on a single katana and fold it over a trillion times to produce the finest blades known to the Omniverse.Katanas are thrice as sharp as European casters and thrice as hard for that matter to. Any mob a sorcerer can frag, a katana can frag better. I'm pretty sure a katana could easily bisect a Terry in full mage armor with a simple vertical slash.Ever wonder why medieval Devapura never bothered conquering Shuji? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Warriors and their katanas of destruction. Even in The War of Ages, Malachatian soldiers targeted the men with katanas first because their killing power was feared and respected.So what am I saying? Katanas are simply the best sword the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in the Mythic system. Here is the stat block I propose for Katanas:Strength+4RS Damage x4 critical hit range+4RS to hit+4RS to damageNow that seems a little more representative of the killing power of Katanas in real life, don't you think?tl;dr = Katanas need to do more damage in Mythic, see my new statblock.
>>3998117Firstly, nice bait. Secondly, you do realize that the difference between various swords is very minimal right? If I took a longsword and a katana and had them chop at a block of wood, they would get through them within a few strokes of each other. Your’s may be top of the line as far as mundane ones go but I’d expect those stats from a legendary weapon of sorts. What you’re basically asking for is the ability to kill anything within one hit, a bit which you will always make unless you roll and exceptional no. >He thinks I would use mage armor of all things to defend myself and allow a melee fighter to get anywhere near meI may be sick right now, but that laugh was worth it.
>>3998126Such ignorant insolence, as expected from a gaijin.Every Shujin Katana is produced with the finest Setetsu, harvested using electromagnetic iron ore sand filtering that leaves no silicate impurities in the blade. This Setesu is then formed into three pieces within the ancestral Shujin forges and imbued with varying amounts of carbon before being individually folded trillions of times. This process is accompanied by billions of Shinto chants and prayers that imbue every blade with hundreds of ancestral Samurai spirits.No piddly European toothpick could ever hope to compare, as they are constructed out of inferior bog iron and worked by illiterate peasant smiths.
>>3998126>Telling Shi to equip his NPCs with crossbows.
>>3998147So you have a blade made of the finest of metals and “blessed by spirits” which have an unknown affect on it. Basically you have an ambiguously mystic origami blade and you want to use it to become One Slash Man. As I said before, your particular sword is better than a European longsword but IRL, the potency of a katana and a longsword are fairly comparable.>>3998149It was bound to happen eventually since Chase is trying to slip in some new advantage for himself every post. Once Chase plows through several of Shi’s encounters like they’re nothing, he’ll start throwing out ranged enemies, flying enemies, and casters left and right.
>>3998184The spirits enhance the fighting prowess of all who fight for Justice. It's like you know nothing at all about historical weaponry.Jokes aside, all weapons are situational, and it really depends on the actual specifications of the sword in question, and longsword is a pretty useless classification in my opinion, but if we're comparing to the katana you likely mean a two handed sword of european make. Now, there are a lot of different attributes a sword like that could have, but for the sake of argument lets say it has a wide blade that tapers to a point like pic related.Now, forging techniques don't really come into play here because the steel is ultimately identical, just refined with a different method. The katana is an excellent slashing weapon, with it's curved blade cuts can be made very efficiently and would probably win your woodcutting contest if it cut with the grain of the wood, whereas the straight edge of the longsword would be more likely to twist in the wood if abused in that way. The katana is simply constructed better for slashing and cutting, but do you know what it's not good for? Thrusting.This European sword has a lot better piercing capability and point control than the blunter point of a katana, and is thus a good weapon for some accurate stabbing. It's really just a situational differency in capabilities, and ultimately these weapons would both be sidearms in an actual military context.tl;dr: Memeblades are nice and all, but when am I getting a fucking polearm?
>>3998215I would offer to work out a handle to put your katana on top of and make a jank ass pseudo-naginata, but we need every ounce of wood.
>>3998215Also, funnily enough, the further back you go the better a sword is at cutting in Europe, because as time went forward the way to go was a stabbing implement to exploit gaps in plate armor, but if you go further back, you get chainmail, which is equally protective just about everywhere.
>>3998219Or maybe I could make a spear if Mark were to give up a dagger.
>>3998215I never propped up one as being better than another and I am well aware of their respective applications. What I’m saying is that neither sword is leagues above each other and that a katana, even a high quality one, shouldn’t have the outrageous stats you proposed earlier.
>>3998229A +4 bonus on a d100 is nothing, it's not outrageous.
>>3998229Terry, do you mean to tell me you don't get that that post is an adaptation of an old copypasta mocking those who believe the katana is some magical uber-sword, and you actually believe that my tetraphillia memestats are actual gameplay suggestions?Because if so I think I might have one of those laughs you keep telling me about.
>>3998229It's an old /tg/ copypasta shitpost about katanas in pathfinder, he's just having a laugh.>>3998230Mythic works by certain difficulties, a - RS makes it one difficulty level harder, a + RS makes it one difficulty level easier. So +4 RS is more like a +40 on a more conventional system.
>>3998232>>3998234The first thing I said in response to his post was and I quote “nice bait”See here >>3998126I think I’ll have that laugh right about now.
>>3998239You can't be simultaneously arguing as if I was being serious and be act smug about knowing it was all a joke. Well, you can but it's a bit annoying.
I've recorded myself singing a short song about Shi. I hope you like it.https://vocaroo.com/5YCOQFq1x2c
>>3998239>>3998247It *is* kind of a dick move to do that.
>>3998247Eh, I knew it was a joke, and having little to do I engaged with it in a somewhat serious and methodical way in order to derive my own entertainment from the exchange. I’m sorry if you thought I was serious but if you read my first response in full, you would have known that i was in on the joke and presented an argument just for the sake of it. We both had the same motivations for our actions here>>3998250It seemed as if you and Chase were entertained by my supposed ignorance until the contrary was revealed or should I say reintroduced.
If I'm being totally honest, I was hoping that this "grimedark" setting would have some of the more realistic fighting and tactics that you see in dark fantasy, but it's really just been more of this anime fantasy stuff. It's the little things really, like instead of my intention to use precise cuts on a group of enemies I end up getting some big overswinging cleave attack. That and the jrpgesque loot (usable armor from a pile of charred goblinoid corpses?) and blushing damsels and I don't really see anything different tone wise. Not to mention I'm tired of getting brutalized in melee despite having overwhelming reach advantage. It all reminds me of the anime the last quest was based on where all the martials dick around until the mage steps up to nuke everything.>>3998260Well, The annoyance started when I shifted to a more serious discussion, and then you made a serious response but appended a reference to my joke as if it factored in to the more grounded discussion about swords. This makes it seem like you are talking past me, either out of ignorance about the facetiousness of my joke, or out of a deliberate attempt to misrepresent my argument with a "but you said earlier that..."
>>3998265Grimdark not grimedark. Although grimdark settings are often grimedark in the sense of low sanitation standards.
>>3998265I treated the entire exchange as a joke and when you got a bit more realistic with your argument, I figured I’d bring up the proposed stats in order to accentuate the absurdity of both the initial joke you presented, and the playful argument in general.
>>3998268I just genuinely enjoy talking about swords and other weapons to be honest. I actually took an interest because of the quest funnily enough. I wanted to have a better level of knowledge so I could better write the fictional version of myself who is a master of every style of weapon and armor.
>>3998273I’ve noticed, and the effort you put into your role playing is commendable. I did a similar thing during the previous threads, though for the most part none of my digging went to use as the result of the QM.
>>3998275Yeah, it's hard to be a skillmonkey rogue without any actual skills in the system. It's a testament to your adaptability that the qm still calls you hypercompetent despite your gimped character.I myself really try to put effort into the tactics when I'm fighting, which usually boils down to how I can use my weapons effectively. This usually bites me in the ass when it gets thrown out the window in favor of rolls and I get mobbed to death.
>>3998279Indeed, I find it humorous how the system both facilitates adaptability and critical thinking yet pushes it all to the side depending on how you roll. Still, this is far more engaging than most rpgs I’ve played collaboratively.
>>3998336I wonder if it could be modified for more consistent results. I might run a series of system testing games to try to create a set of rules to make combat feel more consistent. If I have the time, it could be something fun and useful for me to do while the RnD boys prepare for the launch of Tartarus Quest. Could be useful for other Mythic Qms at least. They would each be focused around a single type of combat, and I would start with some more complex stats for weapons and a bonus modifier to make consecutive actions more attainable. Fragmentary Adventure Experience or FAE, with a subtitle denoting the system being optimized.Example: FAE: MeleeIn this system melee weapons would receive situational bonuses and penalties to certain actions on an interpretive basis at the discretion of the players and qm. with factual information on the weapons being key. Reach will be a very important asset, and polearms will likely dominate as a result.
>>3998377You would need keep track of a lot of information considering the wide variety of weapons that a person could utilize be they conventional or unconventional. Still, having a more consistent combat system would do wonders for the mythic system. In my eyes combat should be determined by skills and prowess both physical and mental. Luck should only play a small roll in such matters. Of course, when you complicate things in this system, it’s original purpose is directly undermined but you could make it work.
>>3998386That's why it would need to be mostly interpretational, the problem is that most people don't know a bastard sword from a jin. You really just need there to be a mutual understanding between the players and the qm about what a weapon should be able to do, and then apply bonuses accordingly. Of course that all goes out the fucking window with magic though. Which is why I fucking hate magic in Mythic, because it's entirely luck based. It's the equivalent of playing pretend on the playground. When I play characters, I like them to be competent but but grounded in some kind of rules and logic. Even Death Perception, for all it's openness and fuckery still operates off of rules which need to be manipulated to achieve results
>>3998398Mythic is mostly luck and interpretation. There's gonna be alot less importance on stratgey when all you do is roll and mabey get a bonus for a good tatic. In other games like dnd where you have a board sure you still roll, but what you do and where you go is much more important with brillant strategys and plans being rewarded in the system.
>>3998398I don’t think a bonus specifically should be the go to method for fixing combat here. If you want combat to be consistent and dynamic an entirely new system would need to be crafted. If I can use hand to hand combat in order to take out an armed and armored opponent through sheer luck, something is wrong here. As for magic, it’s no more random than using weapons but what complicated things is the wide variety of applications it offers. I plan on simply focusing on a collection of spells rather than pulling a deus ex every/ instant win every encounter but in general, Magic is much harder to balance due to its numerous and far reaching applications.
>>3998413Magic would be best if it always worked but the roll decides how effective or how ineffective it is, or how strong the magic effect is
>>3998443A level system would also make things a bit more balanced. Something that would keep someone from turning someone into a fly as their first action of the game for instance, but that would stray too far from game mechanics and make a caster effectively useless.
>>3998450Well for more powerful spells you might have to roll higher for it to effect someone at all, or it might only partially work
>>3998457Perhaps choosing three schools of magic to speacialize in before being inserted into the game and having your casting ability in other schools ranked as below average may suffice. I’m just spitballing here but it’s pretty hard to balance something which is only limited by creativity and luck.
>>3998336>>3998377Actually, Mythic is the best possible reality emulator, but only if the odds and difficulty levels are estimated properly. In our world, most of the little actions that we take, we are near certain that they will succeed. Those should not be rolled for in a realistic game (this is the "logic" rule of Mythic). But, let's say that you have a 15% chance of getting a job interview, that's when you should roll on the chart. Regardless of whether our universe is actually probabilistic or not, as far as we can tell, this is how reality works.Now, as this is an anime setting, we have been using unrealistic odds.More important than anything, is that the QM runs the thread how he wants, so that it's fun for him.As for magic, my concept was that sorcerers can cast anything except spells that are typically priestly. And priests cast spells that are related to their deity's portfolio. With magic being based on willpower, you can use your willpower to shape reality in any way that you can imagine. This system is actually not described in the Mythic book, it is my own concept.The reason magic has been unreliable so far is because the players have been casting difficult spells. As a level 1 sorcerer, if you want reliable magic, you should cast level 1 spells. I estimate spell difficulty by comparing them to similar D&D spells.Cantrip: Minuscule or WeakLevel 1: LowLevel 2: Below AverageLevel 3: AverageLevel 4: Above Averageetc.

>>4001160Okay guys we just have to wait for the second second wind
>>4001234At this point, I’m simply convinced that these sort of threads are cursed. Sure flaking is a term synonymous with /qst/, but I’ve yet to see a multiplayer mythic quest get past its early stages. Nothing of substance is done in these threads before they go under and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
>>4001247It's unstructured and isn't a good foundation for any kind of commitment, and having to keep track of multiple player controlled entities is very tiresome. Speaking from experience here, honestly any of the ideas presented in these threads would work better as a normal quest.
>>4001376Don’t give people any ideas, there’s nothing inherently wrong with the format. The type of storytelling that this system brings is unmatched. Sure on a surface level these sort of threads are harder to maintain but as I said before, flaming is synonymous with /qst/. Structure means nothing if the one who established it is unreliable.

>>3997515Can the slave hear MarkDifficulty low, acting rank averageRoll 34yesMark says "Ladies, if you dont want to starve or die from thirst go ride the train or smthing". Then he speaks about selling them. His eyes have turned red from the fire thats in his blood, his face takes fire traits when he has thoughts about hurting others. One slave faints, the others hide behind Terry. Alina's face is pale, she says to Terry "Please don't sell us. I will do anything that you ask of me, but I don't want to be a slave again. I prefer to die." She holds on his arm tightly. >>3997548Can Mark train his archeryDifficulty below average, acting rank below averageRoll 93critical noThe Eldritch Express has already begun it's journey to Nizbevi. You train in the empty carts but you suck too much.>>3997552Can Owen sneak aroundDifficulty high, acting rank averageRoll 26yesIt's not easy to hide inside of a train, but Owen is stealthily moving around like a panther, readying for its prey. The slaves were already scared by Mark's words, but with the surprise appearance of a scarred man in full BDSM outfit, all of them faint. Even Terry felt a bit nervous.>>3997804Can Chase practice his singingDifficulty low, acting rank lowRoll 90noIt's not suspicious.

They are all married to the daughters of Shi to keep the bloodline pure. From the god king, they have inherited divine powers that are fragmented between them. They are all of chaotic alignment, some of them are chaotic evil but most are chaotic good. The ruler of Akotoshia is named Haruki, he's the last son of Shi and the least powerful. He's a dwarf and chaotic evil.

They look perfect as if they had been made by the best blacksmith in the world. He uses his magic to make them gently levitate and spin in the air. Alina wakes up. With the monsters gone she can now admire Terrys magic. "Terry this is amazing! Do you think you could make me a ring or a necklace?

>>4001948My first roll has been 92 on the two occasions when I’ve rolled under this name.
>>4001957How did you come up with that name?
>>4001966I was going to use the name “Nero” back in the other thread once I got my protection racket up and running. I figured it would be fitting due to the ties between mafia dons and Roman emperors. Redfield would not be paired with the title of Nero however, I would’ve used it as a last name in combination with another first name I would’ve adopted once I left my sprawling crime empire to my right hand man. I think this name is cursed due to it being a shadow of the future that was stolen from me by a rather dishonorable little rat. My stories never get told in a similar manner to how threads like these never finish properly. By invoking my old ambitions into my new, unstable storylines, I am also invoking the Tragedy of Terrance.
>>4001982I will finish this thread, I felt insecure because of family drama. It won't happen again.
>>4001989Glad to hear it. Breaks are fine and given how open ended these things are, I don’t expect this to ever reach an actual conclusion (unless by some miracle this continued for several months or a year). Still, I’d like to be able to see more of this world than just one or two locations. No story aside from my solo adventure has ever passed the locations test.
It's time to replace my little imp. I've got an idea to get a permanent summon. I cast a spell to summon Miracle Dieudonné to the train. If the spell is successful, I cast a second spell to mind control him.

>>4002301This is clearly the real one as there is no way the real Shi would be intelligent enough to register a tripcode.
>>4002555I didn't think somone would try an impersonate me.
>>4002566And look where it got you, you have an army of clones showing up to clean up all your spilled cereal, right in front of your psychologist even.
>>4002593Since when did Shi have imposters gunning for his position? Since when did he have a psychologist for that matter?
>>4002611Both of those things have been clear from the start of the quest. It's literally the entire plot setup.
>>4002628How could I have missed the 35 different IDs individually processing each of my posts and flooding the thread with their own unique takes on my rolls? Or who could forget the fact that Shi has a psychologist who has by my count shown up a maximum of two times in this thread.
>>4002645This is a quest about people attempting to usurp Shi's position, by the law of meme resonance, it's destined to happen on our plane as well.
>>4002655Somehow you always manage to shed a thought provoking light on the stories we find ourselves in. I still question how a psychologist plays any role in this, but aside from that your statement holds up.
Do not be deceived, >>4001966 is the one true Shi!
>>4002875So what exactly is going on here Shi? Is the thread finished or are we still on track (so to speak)?
>>4002882I'll continue this quest. I had to deal with the imposter first though. I'll update tonight and tell you what is actually canon in this thread and not made up by the imposter.
>>4002886I fail to see how you actually dealt with the imposter since all parties involved are phoneposting. It would be a hassle, but if you could decide on a way to use the profile sheet as a form of verification, it would chase of anyone from attempting anymore thread takeovers. For example, adding a number that progresses with the updates could work.

>>4003376Called it>>4003385At least your first roll for 3 actions weren’t 90+. If we include my little test, that makes 4.
>>4003400I'd say.Repeating numbers within volitile number systems, sacred to Kek, god of chaos. These repeating numbers adhere to the rule of threes.Post number ends in 9, sacred number of Tzeench, chaos god of change responsible for the manifestation of psychic powers.The number 5 is the most represented in the rolls, and is sacred to the deity known as Autism Jesus who was recently created on qst.The number 4, which is often known to be an ill omen in eastern religions, but is also a number I have a personal affinity for appears five times in the rolls, and is the last roll in the post.Certainly a big win for the forces of Chaos.
>>4003450This is the difference between me and you Terry, when you fail you whine and lament that you'll never become a level 100 mafia boss, but when I fail at something I adapt. Every move that I make is propelling me forward, never stagnating, never giving in to failure. While I'm speeding by despite my setbacks, you allow yourself to be defined by failure, wearing your failure and baring your dead aspirations to the world. Your rolls are reflecting this, as if you only project failure out into the world you only invite more failure back, like a whiny lisping bat moaning about the failings of female bats in the current time and blaming their lack of batpussygame on anything but their own shrieks of cuckoldry.What you need to understand Terry, is that if you want to score some searing bat slit, you have to stop making dollar store magical items, and start learning how to shriek like a real alpha male. This is why you're still a level one crook after all this time, you have no significant acts of terrorism under your belt and haven't even started to study the blade. If you don't shape up your psychic resonations, you're going to end up stuck in an elven sweatshop making skyphone elevens. You need to do a complete karmic audit and get to work on some lasting psionic infrastructure.
>>4003514That sounds fine and all, but there are a few things to consider.For all intents and purposes, I’m still the most impressive character as far as the mythic quests go. Despite having virtually no class perks and a power that actively worked against me I:Have the most combat experience and never lost a fight nor was I ever injured in oneI traveled through entire nations while robbing them blind at the same timeI’ve shown the most intelligence, ambition, and cunning out of every player without resorting to meta gaming I haven’t done anything so far that can be classified as a mistake. All of my failings have been due to bad rolls or neurotic QMsYou on the other hand, are the polar opposite of me. You’re a fairly smart guy in general but that hasn’t translated to your actual accomplishments. One of your most useful and defining features was given to you through a lucky roll and you simply ran with itAny failure or misfortune that befell You was a direct result of any rash actions you took such as the zombie injury, getting killed by William, or the recent gnoll brawl Your crowning achievement as “big terrorist” only occurred because the QM bailed on his thread and was ok with you making up the ending without any input from him or the diceYou and I are representative of intelligence vs luckP.S.

>>4003622Ah I understand now.You have never failed in your life except for the times where you did but it wasn't actually really your fault so it doesn't matter, and are actually really good at robbing farmers and not getting stabbed.The thing is, sometimes you have to get stabbed a couple dozen times to get where you need to be in life and sometimes it takes 10000 eggs to make an omelette right. It's through these violent egg shankings that we can develop the values necessary to shank the biggest egg of all and grind down the world into individualistic neo-feudalism.I know it's hard to get yourself off with your inarticulate bone mits but someday I hope you realize that real masturbation is done with the heart and not the brain.

I must have been contaminated by Terry's rant.I cast greater testosterone on Terry to avoid future problems.Greater testosterone: whenever the target wants to say something whiny or hyper-defensive, she's silenced.
>>4003694Say what you will, but can you actually point out a moment when I made an obvious and avoidable mistake? You can downplay my fears as much as you want, but any actual arguments against my performance so far will never have a leg to stand on.
>>4003725When you ditched Brick Phone for one of the interior Grimdark Cheats. Or when you ditched the Familias and wrote yourself out of the plot. Or that time you thought trying to emulate Shi would be a good idea.And that's just the stuff I was here for, I don't know what you did in the threads before I got here but it couldn't have been too important.
>>4003776*inferior, but I guess they are interior as in that they go inside your soul. You'd hardly know it due to how often they get locked away though. Wasn't one of the original selling points that they can't be fucked with unless someone has their hand up your soul's metaphysical ass and rips them out?
>>40037761 I could’ve just as easily gotten a cheat with comparable utility and potency to yours. With my class change, the phone became somewhat redundant. I still gambled, but I don’t feel as if I lost or won in this instance2 That wasn’t an actual mistake that could’ve been accounted for. Any reasonable person would’ve had no problem with my decision. In fact, you supported it. 3. As it stands, Sorcerer Terry has much more utility than either form of Rogue Terry. Aside from changing my class (which by the way, benefits this team) there are no parallels between Shi and I be it through our application of power or our approach to combatIn the threads you didn’t pay attention to, I robbed several farms, I looted an inn, fought off wolf attacks, illegally crossed into elven territory getting a few thugs killed in the process, outwitted and robbed a wizard and a public official, and killed a low level kingpin and his goons then robbed him. None of those operations went down with any problem that I didn’t foresee or plan for. When the dice gave me shit, I turned it into gold and the dice gave me shit often.>>4003790You’re only “stripped” of your cheats so often because the other QM barely tolerated their presence. He knows that to those who didn’t start with his threads, not having a cheat would be unthinkable. He’s a rat first and a QM second, and if he has to let people keep some morsel of their cheats to keep his threads rolling, he’ll begrudgingly let it happen.
>>4003860So is a side effect of your incredible intelligence and flawless strategic thinking having to spend hours discrediting every facetious dig made at you by shitposters on an anime fanfiction board? Because if so that's a pretty significant limitation that will likely impair your viability in the future. How are we supposed to rely on a sorcerer that spends all their time whining at people who don't even have any interest in seriously analyzing your meaningless adventures in playing pretend? Honestly, we'd be better off with someone that turns themselves into a limestone statue whenever they try to kill their entire party. That would at least be consistent. Really, your biggest problem would have to be engaging in pointless dickwaving with little to no provocation under the guise of ironic banter while in actual fact taking other people's perception of the fictionalized version of yourself way too seriously despite your attempts to hide how much you need to be recognized.That and not getting any pussy. Seriously man, you could have gotten into that catgirls catslit if you didn't puss out and not join the KK Crew with her. Your incredibly perfect badass persona could have easily steamrolled the competition and got you some ass, but now the most you could hope to get is a reputation as a necrophiliac with a fetish for double ear amputees
>>4003889Feeling overmatched are we? Do you know why I engage with you and all others who conflict with me? It’s becuase I not only enjoy reading my own devilishly intricate breakdowns of my performance thus far but it’s also because I enjoy testing the limits of those I come in contact with. Every time a tear down another one of your jokes with cold logic, it forces you to craft another flimsy yet entertaining narrative. The more you engage me, the deeper you’re forced to dig until you can proceed no further. I’m the bedrock of logic buddy, and no matter your game you’ll never have a deep enough shovel. I know that, you know that, everyone else does as well but the fact that you persist is what makes it all fun. In a way, the harder to try to discredit me through jokes and embellishments the better I can understand you and your thought process. Your most recent post shows that you have nothing more to present, at least in this capacity, but maybe you’ll show me something more in a different sort of game. By the way, it was a wolf girl and if I joined without changing my class, I would’ve died. I know this because I can outthink the very circumstances that surround me, because I have become a scholar of circumstance. Maybe in a few years, you might learn from it’s teachings.
>>4003901Before I ramble out my usual lines of character dissection sandwiched between witticisms of questionable wit, I just want you to know that I had at 45 second laugh before I even cleared the first sentence.

>>4004303*Clap clap* Very close, you even got the heart-shaped hairline properly, which I hadn't mentioned.
>>4004137Picker a towering male with a threatening gaze, the faint dark circles under the eyes are signs of many sleepless nights pondering his surroundings. Though taller than most, he slouches ever so slightly, partially out of habit and for tactical reasons. His bluish green eyes look upon his surroundings and betray his disgust and amusement. He’s covered in blonde hair. His hair, eyebrows, and beard are blonde. His arms and legs are somewhat hairy as well but not noticeably so. He has a rigid jaw which ends in a rounded point and his teeth are pearl-like. He sports an athletic frame and though he isn’t large, there is a fair amount of muscle under his skin. He wears a navy blue t shirt and grey sweatpants that house no less than six pockets.
