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

Any thoughts on what Goob/Bowler Hat Guy should be doing in the setting?I imagine him running from place to place, trying to figure out how to fix things but never able to pull anything off. If found and worked the right way he could become a huge source of info for the party, as he knows a lot but is too stupid to see how to use it.
>>37518119Where is he from again? He looks very familiar but that might just be his resemblance to Snidley Whiplash.
>>37518193From Meet the Robinsons. Currently DORIS control part of the US I thought.
>>37518119Distracted by DORIS minis continually making baseball fields and making him relive that missed catch over and over again.
>>37518232Thanks! Meet the Robinsons is one title I haven't seen.
>>37518671I still havent seen Big Hero 6 or whatever it's name is
>>37519147Yeah, that would be the one. I feel like a lot more of our contributors have seen more of the older Disney films, which could be contributing to why the past few Gridlock-centric threads have been so slow.
This is somewhat off topic, but has anybody noticed that this system would also be great for 8-Bit Dystopia?Also, I suddenly had the idea to run a DVV Classic campaign with my group. It will start out as a normal horse race in the Old West, but will turn out to be a Disneyfied Steel Ball Run in disguise.
>>37519473>8-Bit DystopiaI feel a sudden urge to reboot that once i'm done with this project.
>>37519240Do we have established what causes the setting? Because standard DVV was pretty straightforward.I'm not sure how everything gets mixed up in Gridlock. As I was trying to imagine it I actually saw Mok from Rock and Rule summoning Chernobog instead of the other demon, which might explain the Rock and Rule and Wizards setting. It might be fun to toss in pic related from Interstellar 5555.I've actually posted a couple ideas for fluff recently but it seems that people are wearing down and we need new energy. I just got a pastebin account today, hoping to write some stories for Gridlock so maybe that will help. That's my conceited goal at least.Some ideas for random expansions I've had>Chanticleer from Rock-a-doodle has, in a fit of rage at the pestering from disloyal friends and colleagues has sung the Sun awake, permanently. His domain is now a blasted wasteland, where there is no moisture and nothing can grow. The Skeksis from the Dark Crystal use the steady positioning of the sun to draw more energy, and rule over a greater energy. Their rule is mainly challenged by the Goblin King, who launches attacks from his demi-plane of Labyrinthium. The owls of Rock-a-Doodle now control the american NorthWest.>Two of the major factions in Rock and Rule and Wizards are Mok(Rock and Rule) and Blackwolf(Wizards). Each seeks to show the newly awakened Chernobog that they deserve to be his champion. Hedonism versus Destruction. Maybe through in the Villain from Fern Gully and Interstellar 5555 as contenders here.And crap I'm too tired to write the rest right now. What do you think? I expect most of it to be thrown out, but brainstorming right?
>>37519652>>Chanticleer from Rock-a-doodle has, in a fit of rage at the pestering from disloyal friends and colleagues has sung the Sun awake, permanently.

>>37519652Holy mcfucksticks those typos. IM GOING TO BED
>>37519642Dude I have so many ideas for 8BD. The time will come. After DVV, of course.
>>37519714>>37519652Wow, wow wowThis is Grid locked, Not Bad Blueth. I say we hold off on all that, because dam man. You don't just bring up rocka doodle so casually like that. You gotta give us a warning>>37518119Personally, I'd see him as perhaps one of the few humans left with a free will. He served Dorris well, so she allowed him to escape, for now at least. More effort catching a fool with a cloaking broken time machine is effort not put into managing her empireSpeaking of Doris, perhaps we could give her underlings in the forms of the video game villains. There was that Ant girl and Fat greek guy, both of which Could be expanded on. Perhaps Doris has realized that she can't go this alone, and has retrieved some human help, albeit with limited freedom systemsOn the surface, it seems natural, but take a step bellow, and you'll see how really in control doris is
>>37520468>>37519883That is all.
So how is Litwak reacting to being in the middle of Shengo's territory?
>>37520468Rock 'n Rule and Wizards are both post-apoc, but maybe the entirety of Bad Bluth could be post-apocalyptic. Now there's an interesting idea.
>>37522524Nah, I think Bluth's work s close enough to the fantasy work of Disney that we can fold it into Classic.
Got preoccupied, I'll write something tomorrow.
>>37519767This gif makes me uncomfortable.
Good morning folks. Glad to see a new thread has been started.ooking forward to more work today though not sure where to start personally.
Writing a little something myself.
>>37527495Please do. We need something.
Ralph was dead, and there was nothing more to be done for Sugar Rush. As well coded as the racing game had been, the devastation and corruption wrought by the Cybug Swarm was absolute and it was only a matter of time, quite a short matter of time, before the gameworld collapsed in in itself. Even with the threat of imminent dissolution looking large in his mind, Turbo, or King Candy, or the Swarmlord, or whatever the wolf in sheep's coding considered himself knew that he couldn't escape looking as he did without tipping off the rest of the Arcade to what really happened. Taking just a moment more to survey the ruined, infested racecourses below with something almost like nostalgia, the usurper landed on the crusty breath-mint cap of Diet Cola Mountain where he had thrown his foe. Using all his willpower along with every tip, trick and cheat he'd learned in his rise to power, the manic racer further suppressed the Cybug he'd incorporated into himself, rewritten his appearance to become the jovial if regrettably foppish King Candy once more. Patting a bit of dust off his kingly regalia, the pretender looked himself over, checking himself for any nasty insecticide tells."There. We mutht appear prethentable, muthn't we. Like a proper King in Exile."Satisfied with his efforts, the rotund little man began a quick but thorough search of the mountaintop, intent on finding the jetspeeder his 8-bit reject of an opponent had rode in on. Throwing a glance through the swirling swarm of Cybugs toward the horizon, Candy noted idly that the game's CGI backdrops were beginning to distort in the distance and that the terrain had started to shift and buckle, breaking up into its composite polygonal objects.
>>37530604What did distressed the malicious monarch more however was the sight of his candy castle exploding in slow motion into an assembly of pink and white cylinders, so much so in fact that he almost overlooked the lovingly misshapen candy kart and that skidded to a halt beside Ralph's impact site. "Raaaaaaaaaaaalph!!! Raaaaaaaaaaaalph!!! Get up!!! Get up Ralph!!! You gotta get outta here!!! Everything's falling apart!!! You gotta go!!! Raaaaaaaaaaaalph!!!"Cried out the kart's sole occupant, the small figure glitching through the vehicle in a flash of broken code to kneel at the downed giant's side, shoving him hard with both hands in an attempt to rouse him. Eyeing the claptrap kart distastefully but finding joining the apocalyptically unstable gameworld in its final death throes even more unpleasant, King Candy strode up to the idling car and wedged himself inside, foregoing his usual helmet in his haste. Although usually one to take every opportunity to kick a foe when they were down, any unpleasant words Candy had in mind for Vanellope died on his tongue as the skybox failed, plunging Sugar Rush into a sickly, unnatural half light. Deciding to leave the little Glitch to her grief and her fate as the gameworld's final corruption and dissolution began, the unrightful ruled threw the kart into reverse, performing a textbook three-point turn as he prepared to make his escape, only to find Vanellope staring straight at him with wide, cold eyes.
>>37530623"You... You killed him... You killed Ralph... Didn't you...""I didn't do anything of the thort, Vanellope, I athure you."Candy denied, all thoughts of gloating suddenly gone from his mind, feeling in that moment just the tiniest bit frightened by the little girl's baleful gaze. Standing up almost protectively between her friend's body and the Candy King, the young racer spoke again, glitching and flickering with emotion as a wall of rippling, pixelated nothingness began to sweep in from the horizon."You killed him! You killed my Hero!!!"She screamed, her voice distorted into a garbled, ghastly wail as her entire body twisted and flashed, lines of faulty code glimmering eerily against the encroaching darkness. Eyes widening fearfully, Candy slammed the shifter into drive, grinding the gingerbread gears terribly as he lurched forward, speeding toward the rim of the crater and the mountainside road that had brought the Glich up in the first place."Everyone's gonna know what you did to Ralph!!! Everyone's gonna know, and when everyone knows, you're gonna be sorry!!! You're gonna be soooooooooooorry!!!"Vanellope's voice shrieked, seeming to bounce and echo off the walls of darkness swiftly closing in on all sides, following Candy as he tore off. She was wrong of course, and would no doubt be deleted within moments as the world fell in on her, and the usurper couldn't afford to let nonsensical threats distract him now. Glancing back, just once, in the rearview mirror, he saw the flashing, stuttering image of the small figure turn back to the body of her friend and throw herself across it as the undulating, twisting vectors of the gameworld's event horizon crashed down over the both of them. Sugar Rush was collapsing and he needed to drive faster and better than he ever had before, faster than King Candy, faster than Turbo, to reach the exit before he shared the girl's fate. He would make it. And none would ever be the wiser of what he'd done.
>>37530604>>37530623>>37530645I really like this, good job mate.
>>37531189Thanks. It's not the best thug I've written for DVV but I wanted to contribute something to this thread.Trivia: Originally, Vanellope was going to have a greenish or grayish skintone to show that she was a Glitch and unlike the other racers, but the design team thought it made her look too much like a little zombie.
>>37531753the way I see it Glitched!Vanellope would be kind of like the Peripheral Jumper from SCP, a flicker of Pixels at the edge of the players vision, that sort of thing
>>37525615 this gif gives me a bonner Fuck I hate frozen but why are they so hot
>>37532394Exactly right. I like that idea a lot myself.She's a collection of misplaced pixels and a flicker of movement in your peripheral. She's a jittery sprite watching you from far beyond the invisible walls and waist-high fences confining you to the play area. She's the distorted, warbly voice guiding whispering hints, exploits and cheats in your ear.I like to think that if the PCs were ever to come face to face with the Glitch, the Ghost herself, that she might appear as a void-black, Vanellope-shaped hole in the gameworld with heavily corrupted, pixelated edges and an echoey, "multiplied" voice.
>>37533101this is really good, I love the direction you've taken my idea.also I've decided to ditch the idea i had for Maliwan to begin with and go for something else, heres my thing;>What I am after is an Alien that combines the features of a Hoatzin, A lionfish and a Frilled lizard, He must be wearing the hat Pictured, have a Cigarette hanging from the corner of his mouth, be in the colors on the top left hand side (Left is Feathers, if any, Right is skin/scales), and,to top it off, he must be in the style of Treasure Planet (Disney, 2002)>So any takers (this is not a Furry before anyone complains)
>>37533481I like this design a lot better than your previous one. Nice work!
Maybe I could try writing something else.
Rolled 5, 4 = 9 (2d8)
>>37533481Definitely like the idea better than the last one
>>37533481Please tell me it spits venom.
>>37538137Hey there there Knight!
Looks like Marvel's basically making a DVV-ersque patchwork Marvel setting for us - http://marvel.com/comics/events/323/secret_wars_2015 - New Quack City is obviously Howard the Duck, and oh god is 'Bar Sinister' Underdog?
>>37538518I heard something like that. Curious.
>>37538518No offense to you, but meh
>>37517516Straight from Bill himself, Ala book of mysteries
>>37540505Who says that King Candy is the only character smart enough to hack cybugs? Perhaps the Glitch has few aces up her sleeve, and all she needs to finish the coup de grace is a few lost strands of code
>>37540598Xanatos has seemingly met his match. Thankfully hes the only one who needs
>>37540659This mysterious figure has been seen lurking around San Fransokyo and Las Angles, but only now has begun taking direct action against both of the cities. She has been confirmed for AT least 55 break ins, 14 Super riots, and 5 assassinations on Kronus Corp. Officials, all under impossible odds. Although she is seen in Shego Corp. Colors, Shego herself has denied any connections, but knowing the Super, she could be lying.
I added a bit more info about King Candy's rule to the wiki.
>>37541029Deep underneath the sprawling industry of President Dorris' company, DOR-15 bides her time. Although her human host slowly degrades, its only a matter of time before she strikes. But for now, DOR-15 is content to play the role of CEO Dorris Robinson, sole heir to the Robinson Industry fortune. It is a role that she seems to take a macabre joy in, playing the semi-false daughter to her creator.
Somebody should stat Sheriff Woody.
>>37541651Life in DOR-15 ind. Can be summed up in one word: Business. From the machines to mines to the skies above, business is the key to life. Everything is treated as a contract or venture or stock, from marriges being signed in triplicate or childern being treated like new store expansions.Through out the city, most people dress in greys, blacks, and dull purples, almost all in buisness suits or dresses giving some mann. But by state law, all are required to have their mandatory Personal Aid Overseer. These usually come in the shape of bowlerhats, but larger constructs aren't out of the question
>>37541815Here is an example of a PAO mining bot, designed to help human minera
>>37541815Once I make a KLR for DOR-15 INC., i'll be sure to incorporate this.
>>37541651If we could get a picture of Dorris with host, it might look nice. Plain business suit and skirt, Dorris firmly over her eyesActually, due to this setting, we might want to redraw all the kings and queens
>>37540505Holy shit, letting 'WESTERN DEMOCRACY IS A SHAM THE RICH OWN YOU' and 'MORALITY IS A MENTAL CAGE YOU SERIOUSLY COULD DO BETTER' get through is one of the cooler things Disney has done.
>>37543216It's actually from Disney?
>>37543348Yep, looked it up, it is. Wow, Disney. Just, just wow.
I'm thinking of adding a bit of Mimi from Super paper Mario to terrorbug as well as elemants of Mistral and nui harime, any thoughts?
>>37543373which is especially weird since they're part of the rich that own us. But that's neither here nor there.
>>37540659This image is a leftover from when Xanatos was suggested for vanilla DVV. Not sure if he is still Roark's strategist since he was moved to Gridlock.
>>37517516Should we have a mention of Chef Gusteau's Frozen Foods being a common staple throughout the lands?
>>37544723That'd be a nice little detail.
>>37544895"You can't Go Wrong with a Gusteu!"
>>37544568And we love them for it.
>>37538137Not sure, I'm still waiting to catch our resident drawfag and ask him, no one on the drawthread was any help at all
So should we stat out Vanellope?
>>37543660....Why? They add nothing.
>>37546231Yes they do, they add a bit more visual flare to the creature.
>>37546228I could give it a try today at work. That sounds pretty fun. Did we ever collect the stats we made for Ice Anna, Mulan, Clarice the Beast and the other NPC allies into one document?
Fuck it, I've been tinkering with these two too long. Here they are, the last two hunters:Amos SladeRole: Sensible/AgileCountry of Origin: 'murricaSize: MediumSpecies: Human---Attributes---Robustness: 14Agility: 15Intelligence: 7Sensibility: 16Charm: 7Will: 4/4---Skills---Athletics: 8Acrobatics: 8Melee: 7Ranged: 10Brawl: 3Prevent Harm: 8Endure: 10Stealth: 8Intimidate: 8Travel: 11Insight: 10---Traits---Think You Can Hide From Me?: +2 to Insight when trying to detect people in Stealth.Big Game Hunter: +3 on ranged rolls against large, dangerous animals. Particularly mean kittens don't count.Varmint Blaster: +5 on ranged rolls against small animals.
>>37546581---Powers---That's A Good Boy: Slade's Charm is conisdered to be 12 against animals trained for hunting, as well as animals that are naturally pack hunters.Release the Hounds: For every hunting beast assisting him, Slade gains a +1 bonus to Insight checks to track animals and to detect any who are hiding, up to a limit of +8. If 5 or more hunting beasts accompany him, he and any Inner Circle hunting beasts may additionally reroll such checks. For the purpose of this power, Mooks count for 1, Lackeys count for 2, and Inner Circles count for 3.My Dogs!: Having already lost the two best hunting hounds he's ever had (Copper was slain defending him from the monstrous bear Foxkiller and Chief still crippled by that accursed fox), Slade refuses to let those tragedies repeat themselves. Any hunting beasts under his command may reroll all Prevent Harm Checks, Robustness based Endure checks and any miscallenous checks to save the hunting beasts from physical harm.And Next Time I Won't Miss: If a particular animal has attracted Slade's most dire wrath, he will spend a will point. From that point on, he will have a +4 bonus on all Ranged, Melee, Brawl and Insight checks against this animal, and will reroll all rolls against it. This effect can only be used against animals Slade has seen, identified and (as far he knows) been wronged by, but lasts as long as Slade holds onto his grudge (meaning it will last forever unless he provided with a particularly good reason to forgive that animal).---Equipment---Double-Barrel Shotgun: +5 to Ranged. May be fired twice using the same action. An action must be spent to reload after every two shots. Requires a minimum of 14 Robustness to be used.:Hunting Blade: +2 to Melee. Rather crude looking, but it gets the job done.Brand Spanking New Truck: With a specially engineered bulletproof radiator to protect against angry old ladies.

Holy shit! You win the thread, Knight! With these two done I think Classic is technically complete, yes?
Halleluja! They're finally done!
>>37547429Walt be praised!
Vanellope would be a Nimble Gal, correct? I'm thinking of statting her but as a glitch and an urban legend I'm not sure how feasible or right that would be.
Tonight I'll work up a new opening post that's more Gridlock-centric.
Hey! Drawfag! Are you up for drawing this?>>37533481
>>37517516> OPs picif turbo/candy king won wouldn't it just result in sugar rush getting unplugged taking hero's duty & fix-it felix with him?it doesn't seem like being assimilated by the bug thing is reverseable.
>>37552212There will definitely be some unplugging going on. Fix-It Felix and Sugar Rush are definitely gone from the Arcade, but Hero's Duty is probably still there, seeing as how only one Cybug escaped the game to infest Sugar Rush with its spawn.Also, its important to remember that the Villains' victories and the fates of the Heroes should feel interesting and satisfying, even if the circumstances needed to make them happen are a bit more complicated.
>>37552212He can delete someone from the game's code and have no one be any the wiser, you don't think he can disguise a few things with it?
>>37553012Fix It Felix Jr. is still around and is serving as a homebase for The Resistance.
>>37553100Maybe Litwak just couldn't bear to get rid of the old cabinet and has it plugged in with a few others in a back room somewhere.
>>37553100Fix-It Felix and the denizens of his game could have been forced to evacuate to another gameworld after Ralph's death too. I remember some discussion in an earlier thread in which Felix became super competent and lead the efforts to keep the other gameworld's from corrupting while Calhoun became overbearingly overprotective of her players and traumatized by a renewal of her PTSD.
>>37553021He can also completely change his appearance and rewrite his own coding.
>>37544723>Chef Gusteau's Frozen Foods: Four out of Four Churned-Up Bogs agree! The best of the worst!
>>37547704If anyone, we should be worshipping the Nine Old Men. One of us is descended from a Disney legend who isn't even included in that, so make that the Nine-and-One.BLESSINGS OF THE NINE-AND-ONE BE UPON YOU
>>37533481Gimmie a minute, I think I got something...
>>37555730>>37533481here's a quick concept. I'm thinking more bird, less lizard?
>>37547017>>37547429>>37547704If there's no objections, I'll be uploading them to 1d4chan.Now then, I noticed we don't have any Villains for the Hunnic Empire and I've had a spark of inspiration for one: Shan Yu's Grandson, Attila.
>>37555867The lizard frill would be the most important part, I'd say. That's what will make it appear the most alien. I mean, just look at this shit:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAo09yYOpCU
>>37555875No objections here on the statblocks you've made. I think they're pretty great. Also, I'm all for that particular Hunnic Villain. It's bad that I'm imagining him as being almost cordial, almost flirtatious "frenemies" with Mulan the Undying.>>37555867Great work!
Do we have Captain Hook or King Leonidas statted? I'm looking on 1d4chan for anybody we may have missed.Still going to request Sheriff Woody. If nobody wants to do it, I can stat him when I have free time.
>>37555958That's one freaky lizard.
>>37556734Captain Hook... no... actually... I don't think we do. And Leonidas? As in 300?
>>37557827King Leonidas from Bedknobs and Broomsticks. The King of the Island of Naboombu.
>>37558045Didn't we discard that a while ago?
>>37558091It's on the 1d4chan map. It's a little island, so I don't see why we shouldn't have it other than having more kings to stat.
>>37558153Then I think I have a new KLR to work on...
>>37558355We also don't have the Queen of Hearts or the Coachman statted. Guess we weren't as done as we thought.
>>37558045Was THAT his name? I never knew!
>>37517516Been meaning to ask, who is in charge of the Grid? If pic related was victorious in the first movie, Flynn would have never escaped the grid, and thus would have never made C.L.U. Technically, the MC was only a henchman, carrying out the executive guy's orders. Maybe he kept Flynn as a slave and forced him to make CLU so he could have a program with user-level permissions, thus escaping the limits of his programing?
>>37558811That sounds good.
>>37558811The bigger question I have is how exactly does the Grid fit into the world setting? It's come to my understanding that the villains attain immortality through various means (personal favorite is the Hunter's Society). I suppose Atlantis would be a rival to the grid, on account of their technology?
>>37559074Atlantis may or may not exist in Gridlocked. We're trying to decide whether they're the same setting at the same time, the same setting in the future or completely separate worlds. Personally, i'm in favor of the first one as the second requires canonizing what happened to the Classic villains and the third has no sense of continuity.
>>37559074I thought Atlantis was only in the vanilla DVV setting, not gridlocked?
>>37559319I'm still in favor of the third, frankly.
>>37559319Won't the first require explaining why Europe has only medieval technology, but North America has internet access. Radcliffe has only just established the Virgina colony after all.
>>37559606Radcliffe is on his third generation and we could always have the idea of Europe embracing Magic while America embraced Science with the notable exception of Bill Cipher.
I would prefer if Classic DVV and Gridlocked remained separate.As a compromise, I propose that players can travel between the two worlds via New York sewer portals.
>>37559839Now THAT is cool. Maybe we should do that.
>>37559319>>37559746Ehh... I prefer Classic and Gridlocked being separate worlds, Or maybe connected through some shit like the hollow world theory. Otherwise, explaining everything would be way too much of a clusterfuck.However, I'm in favor of Atlantis existing, or more like "having existed" in Gridlocked. Something like, their civilization eventually collapsed and they're in an even more decaying state, if living at all. It may still be possible for PCs and villains to get their hands on some of that magitch, though. Maybe even visit the ruins of Atantis.
>>37559903Either they're separate worlds or they're not. Make up your mind!
>>37559839As in PCs from Classic going to Gridlocked and vice versa?Because it'd be weird (but interesting) to have a motorhead or a vidya character facing against Yzma or Maleficent, yet cool to have them trying to take out Chernobog.
>>37560000Separate worlds sharing geography and -some- events within the timeline, maybe?That way you could have the ruins of Atlantis, as in, they never had contact with the outside world after their downfall and their society/culture pretty much disappeared, and it'd still be a separate world.
>>37560170Hmm, not my thing but eh.
>>37555867Nice job! this is exactly what I was after!
>>37558443I've added those three to the 'what we still need done' section on the wiki page.
Just popping back in to say, as I always have, that Classic and DVV really need to remain as separate worlds unto themselves. The timeframes and thematic differences between the core game and the expansion are so great that trying to shove them together will create a whole that is lesser than the sum of its parts.I'm not opposed to some crazy sort of hidden portals between the two if they're really desired, but their existence should be left up to the DM's discretion.
>>37566193I suppose if I have to compromise, i'd go with them being separate but you can transfer between them with sewer grates if only because it gives us a tie in to this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enchanted_%28film%29
>>37566253Oh, that's actually a great tie-in. I hadn't thought of it that way.
Bumping with great interest.
Writer of the Vanellope blurb here. Any suggestions for something else to write?
>>37569239howsabout an epilogue of Litwak opening the arcade and noticing that Sugar rush is no longer working, then getting a jumpscare from Glitch!Vanellope screaming "HELP ME!" before the fuses in the cabinet blow out, whatdo you think?
>>37569369Oh, this has promise. I could try something like this. Litwak has been something of a question mark of mine all this time. What has he been doing in the Gridlock world? Has his arcade been suffering due to the glitchiness? I'd imagine that he's been laying low and continuing to provide family entertainment wherever he is. I'd like to imagine thg Litwak is a good guy. Mayb he even knew Flynn.
>>37569431are we talking Flynn Rider here, if so I've created a destablising event for classic Europe>"Mirror Mirror in my hand who is the fairest in all the land">RAPUNZEL.>"Well we'll just have to correct that won't we, Gothel">(Talking mirrors speak with a voice like the Death of the Disc)also on the subject of the Arcade, I like to think that the Cybug Villains (Except Drachenbug) all have several phases>Punch: stage where he normally wins in his the game he has taken up residence, repeat but with him cheating, cybug hybrid stage triggered by one of the players stabbing him in the chest>Terror: flies around the arena dropping hard candy spikes on the players,secod stage has her ditch her wing to try and clobber them with hard candy weapons, cybug hybrid form has her leaping around the arena on eight spindly legs spitting boiling syrup at people, this stage is triggered by slicing her arms off and that is all I have at the moment
>>37570393I'm statting a villain for the Old West. Almost done.
>>37570432any thoughts on this>>37569614?
>>37570477I prefer the settings separate (with the exception of sewer portals, which I suggested).On the Arcade side, I wonder how players are even getting into the games. The Cybug Villains are good, but Terror Bug losing her arms probably won't happen unless the players know who she is based off of.Also, he meant Kevin Flynn from TRON.
>>37570566derp, I had no Idea that's who he was talking about, I haven't seen the original tron, also the arms thing triggers automatically when she runs out of strikes in her second phase, the arm slicing was just flair for it.

>>37571042good job, great way to implement bullseye
>>37571167Considering how Woody is a good guy in both Toy Story and his imaginary TV show, he would only be a 'Villain' because he works for Alameda Slim.That, or the GM can use his old concept from the original Toy Story pitch.

>>37571460He might be best put with the other potential ally NPCs then.
>>37571674That's a good idea. Who else do we have as potential allies?
>>37571762there's Mama Odie in the shadowlands, and I cannot really think of anyone else
>>37571976There's lots of potentially useful characters that are busy (Mulan), disilusioned (Milo), or possibly dead (Ariel). Not only must you find these lost heroes, but you must also put them back on the right track.

Worrisome bump again.
Making more characters at the moment. We could use more Inner Circle Villains.What is everyone else doing?

>>37582360What do you think of >>37580439 as an EGHC Villain?
Took me long enough, but I wrote the Vanellope glitch thing.Dialogue's a bit weird to read, but that's what you get from glitches.http://pastebin.com/fp563VF5
>>37582412I like it, it could definitely work in the inner circl
>>37582503Is Colonel Carnage an OC?Despite his uniform, why does he remind me so much of this guy?
>>37582503this is perfect, it really captures the setting within the Arcade and offers the players a way to get there from the Grid to there, I love the way you've implemented Vanellopes movements into it as well, all in all good job
>>37582623Yeah, just made a random arcade villain for her to help out. Also Don Karnage is boss.>>37582638Thankye, glad it works.
>>37582605Dingo was cursed by (insert magic here, provably fey or Aurora) as a punishment for disrespecting nature. It backfired. If anything, he now acts like he is the chosen hunter of nature.The Club keep him around for his great records in Madagascar, not knowing about his monster side. At least, nobody finds out and lives.
>>37582687if anything he reminds me of Dellinger from One Piece
>>37582708One Google seach later, and I can say I agree.It's almost 3:30 AM. Going to bed and statting more Villains/Inner Circle (what is the difference again?) in the morning.
>>37582503This is fantastic. You've really nailed Vanellope's voice and her movements, and I liked how you gave her a blank gamespace in which she could manifest. Also, I have to say that your plan for her plan for Ze Colonel was pretty brilliant.Great work!
>>37582503...have to say, it got to me. That last line, man.
>>37582623I see him looking more like master contra from contra
>>37583372although, thinking back on it if he's the main Bad Guy from Captain Courage then he's probably a two stage final boss (helpful NPC with minor shape-shifting), then why don't' we make his theoretical second stage his skeleton shifting into a 7 foot tall canine, theropod hybrid (just his skeleton mind you)
>>37583372>>37582623The Captain Courage game appears to be an Indiana Jones-inspired tomb-runner puzzle-shooter, so I'm imagining that Colonel Carnage and his troops are probably Nazi expies, several times removed.I have to say that Vanellope's insistence that game villains can help people might be my favorite part of the story.
>>37583448so like this then?
>>37583500I also imagine Mangle looking like this
>>37583500Probably less like Toht and more like a tall, authoritative and generically evil looking man in an austere black-on-black uniform.
>>37583508and General Grinder looking like this
>>37583514Idon't know why But I suddenly got the mental image of Geppetto from Shadowrun Storytime, Pre-HMHVV of course
>>37583287Vanellope's a crafty little devil, she is.>>37583327Bueno.>>37583448It is Villains Victorious, after all.
>>37583688It really makes me want to try and write something else in the Wreck-It Ralph universe. Maybe something from Litwak's perspective, or something about kids sneaking into the Arcade at night and trying to see "the Glitch" for themselves.
>>37583835maybe have one of them looking at an arcade screen and then a Cybug slams into it making it jump forward a few inches?
>>37583835Do it, more lore for the setting!
>>37583937this is from inside the cabinet of course, the cybug is scuttling on the game screen in 16-bit, then it turns, sees the kid and Slams! into the screen of the cabinet in High Def, I also turns out it wasn't small, it was just really far away....
Alright! I'll give it a shot!I've already got a few ideas.
Cyber warfare's gonna be weird. Vanellope vs. Giffany glitch fight would be the trippiest thing.
>>37584069That would be amazing.
Is there a reason Jafar hasn't taken over the world yet?
>>37584283Churgle-Burgle, that's why
>>37584289I... don't know what that means
>>37584312The reason that Jafar cannot take of the world is because of chernobog, the reason I said Churgle-Burgle was if you say HIS name HE will know EXACTLLY what you are doing and where you are
>>37584328True, I guess he and Hades are a step above the restI guess they could take over but prefer the world in chaos like this?

bumping until the other people get backAlso I am thinking of insect Themes for the Arcade villains (Punch: Mantis shrimp+Hercules beetle, Terror: Black widow+ Praying Mantis, Drachen: Dragonfly+Scorpion, Program Lq-84i: Grasshopper+Centipede) all I need is a dual bug theme for the smart guy and I'm a happy bunny (these themes apply to their Cybug hybrid forms only)
>>37586472I really don't know that we should be using insect themes exclusively for the Arcade villains.
>>37586371>"BURN THE WOMEN, RAPE THE TREASURE, TAKE THE HOUSES!">"Wait a minute...."
>>37586479Oh, I was just thinking that their hybrid forms could take cues from different insects (Gridbug has legs like a grasshopper and a midsection like pic related etc cetera) but the concept is not restricted tothem
>>37586572thats the joke
Don't forget to go to the thread archives and upvote the threads, haters are still on the loose and all the recent threads are in the negative.
I'm going to put these new villains on the 1d4chan.
Can we rename Ride'm to Horse of a Different Color? I find it catchier, but it's no big deal.
this is what I have come up with as a reference to Gridbug
So what has the Magic IRC come up with so far? I'm asking here because I couldn't find the chat itself.
anyone from eagleland available?
Just double checking in case it hasn't been covered. We've got a good idea of where the campaign would end, with guys like Ursula, Hades and Chernobog being the upper tier baddies. But what about the beginning of the campaign? Where would the heroes start setting right what once went wrong, and who would be low-tier enough to be a feasible starting threat for low-level PCs?
>>37591155American here. I'm making more Disneyfied JoJo characters because Araki is possessing me or something. At least we get more enemies to fight.
>>37591336was it decided there would be several groups of heroes?
>>37591336I suppose it depends on the group.
>>37591336The test campaign started in the old west, since Slim is probably one of the weakest. Nothing prevents the players from starting in the domain of a more powerful villain, though probably the first part of the campaign would be about getting the hell out of dodge.

>>37592593this is brilliant, nice job
>>37592750Thank you. Going to work, then making more of these.
>>37591336As others have said, good places to start Low-Level campaigns would be those Lands where the power level of the primary Villain is low, or where the primary Villain isn't outright-evil and may be amiable to coercion by the PCs:>Slim's Wild West>Rourke's Atlantis>Yzma's Sunless Empire>Any of the Beast Lands>The Elite Global Huntsmens' Club>Etc.etc.etc.
>>37592845Well done! We'll be looking forward to more!
>>37591424>Dio Brandon>vampire working the Horned King>sworn enemy of the Jostark familyOh, if only I'd gotten to part 3 by now and would know my shit well enough to stat him...
>>37594327Pt. 3 Dio is hard to stat because of all the bullshit he comes with.
>>37594327>>37595155Suffice to say, his Stand is one of those bullshit timestoppers and gets defeated only by a last minute powerup.
>>37595403To be fair, the World is not nearly as bullshit as King Crimson.And although not timestoppers, there are some other seriously bullshit stands such as Marilyn Manson and Bohemian Rhapsody.
>>37594327>>37595155>>37595403I plan on portraying Count Ronald James as a vampiric nobleman who ditched Prydain in the dead of night. He is now hiding out in Egypt from both the Horned King and the Sultan while he amasses an army of his own. HK is ignoring him, but Jafar wants the Count dead and his magical items confiscated.Should be another hour until I can start working on that. Until then, you guys can guess which namefag I was until I retired the title. The winner may choose the JoJo character I stat after DIO. The losers admit defeat in their hearts and lose thier souls. Are you game?>>37597028It's a small internet after all.
>>37598234I know Sverd's in Florida, but he's got some heavy shit going down tonight, so I doubt you're him.I'm working on Bruford and Tarkus (advanced Cauldronborn). Can we agree on a power for the sake of consistency?>WRRRRRYYYYYY: Whenever this character deals 2 or more strikes in a single Brawl attack, it gains one strike. It also gains a strike whenever it disposes of a living Mook. However, it bursts into flames and dies when exposed to sunlight.
>>37600516Here is a longer winded version that covers more bases.>Phantom Blood: Unholy energy flows through this body, making it beyond the simple undead. Whenever this character deals 2 or more Strikes in a single Brawl attack, it gains one Strike. It also gains an additional Strike whenever it disposes of a living Mook or Lackey. This great power comes at a great price: This character bursts into flames and dies the instant they are exposed to true sunlight. Artificial UV rays cause 3 Strikes per turn of exposure and Blinding.I'm not Sverd. Hint: I did something minor that was relevant to the name. Also, don't forget about your soul.
>>37600516I'm not him.
>>37600975moot's successors are being fags and have deemed my post spam, so I have to upload the stats as pics.
>>37602187>>37602276Niiiice. Though I would suggest renaming them for the purpose of making them more different from the originals.Could you put them on this Drive? I use it for all of the reference characters.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hNQebUY5R9SDqTXB9GJ8_8207CQ7ILG-351v9f-OJfE/edit
>>37602510Oh, geez, you even dug up ACDC and Kars. I made them but ended up losing them when my computer shut down for updates when I didn't expect it to.Anyhow, I'll put up "Bradford" and "Tarkon".
>>37602640>>37602510Err, it's not letting me edit. You sure you got it set up for public editing?
>>37602706Fixed. My bad.Almost done with the Count. Fine tuning the rest of his Traits and Powers.
>>37602753Alrighty, the knights are up. Now hopefully, we'll get to play tonight...
Curses! Foiled by mods!Oh well. Added Count Ronald James to the Drive.
>>37603276Perhaps the mods have deemed stats threads to be spam, and that's why we can't share any stats.
>>37603386Wait a second. If we're doing JoJo, then who is statting the rest of the characters we need to complete the beta? As much as I wanted to move on to Mariah and Iggy, that should take precedence.
>>37603451The beta is technically complete, as all the Kings have been statted. It would be nice if we could work in at least 1 Villian for every kingdom, but right now it's okay to stat joke characters.Maybe we should include them at the back of the corebook, in a section that doesn't appear in the table of contents.
>>37603607Who we still need:The CoachmanKing LeonidasWendy DarlingAliceThe Queen of HeartsCaptain HookThat's still a couple of Kings and Queens, even if Captain Hook is the only 'important' King on there. I couldn't find Hook on the 1d4chan, Suptg or Foolz. I'm surprised he wasn't noticed sooner.On an unrelated note, I found Cruella in the archives and put her on the 1d4chan.

>>37603756Here is some quick guesswork:>The CoachmanCharming/Robust, probably can enchant food to donkeyfy people at will>King LeonidasDidn't see it>Wendy DarlingSmart/Sensible, can travel to Neverland by flight once she is freed, possibly can fly by herself and others with powers>Alice LiddellSmart/Sensible, can travel to Wonderland via holes or mirrors, bonus to interacting with or understanding nonsensical creatures>The Queen of HeartsCharming/RobustNothing coming to me>Captain HookBasic pirate stuff, I'm spent on imagination at the moment
>>37603756Well, I thought we had Davy Jones as the Pirate King.Also, the Coachman. There's a name I haven't heard in a long time.
>>37604489>I thought we had Davy Jones as the Pirate KingHook has his own territory and KLR. The Huntsman also have their rulership divided among them, so the pirate lords could have a similar relationship.>There's a name I haven't heard in a long time.If we knew more about the Coachman, then it would be much easier to stat him. I checked around the internet, and there's not much to work on.
Heart of The World: An extremely old and dangerous magical amulet. It stops time, granting the user ‘free time’ to perform additional actions during their turn. However, for each additional action taken, the user must give up a Strike in return. Pausing everything but yourself is exhausting, and all magic has a price.I was going to add a picture of Dio's Stand, but I'm leaving it out in case Knightfag somehow wasn't spoiled already
Ninth playtest session here: http://pastebin.com/m5b74KegIn this session, Archer goes somewhat more crazy, they make a Gun Pig, explosives are purchased, a priest is recruited, and Runs-With-Coyotes goes on a rant longing for the life of a murderhobo.
>>37604659>>37604489I got nothing on the Coachman, but I might stat Stromboli as a Villain (there was mention of him setting up shop at Pleasure Island, though he might also work as a random encounter) just to make copious "Master of Puppets" references. Perhaps he has made himself a legitimate threat by somehow animating all his puppets as Pinocchio was animated?
>>37605409I was going to make a puppet character. He would be a magically animated doll filled with stolen Atlantean tech and turned into a weapon against evil. I planned on using Geno as a cover for his real inspiration of Mega Man.Anyway, here's some Stromboli Powers:>Master of Puppets: By spending a Will Point, Stromboli may animate 2d6 puppets to fight as Mooks for him. These puppets can rise 1 round after being defeated and fight again as long as they are connected to their strings.>I'm Pulling the Strings: As long as Stromboli has puppets available, may make Ranged attacks by directing their movements and they take any Strikes he would take by pulling them in harm's way.He also has puppeteers (implied to exist off screen) as Lackeys.
>>37605409>>37605696You can't make Stromboli without giving him his bitching whip and having at least a reference to his original name Fire-eater though.
>>37609500>Fire-eater (Unique): True to his name Stromboli does not lose strikes to fire of any sort, instead by spending a will point he gains an attack of opportunity against anyone in melee combat with him whilst ablaze does this sound like a good power for him?
>>37609586Sure. Has sort of a circus theme going on.
>>37605696What if one of the puppeteers was Inner Circle, but forced into his role unwillingly? His name would be Jim Henson.
>>37610465>Hendricks "Hen" Jameson, is the reluctant puppeteer of Pleasure Island, in his fight he uses two larger versions of a vertical control arrangement, gifted to him by the coachman for his 'good work', to seize control of two party members shadows.>when defeated he exacts his revenge on the coachman, who lured his son from under his nose whilst he was out shopping, by using them to make him strangle himself, the players are going have to convince him that he coachman must see justice and that killing him will get Hendricks no closer to finding his son
>>37610465So Knight what do you think of this>>37611064
>>37610465>>37611064Stromboli, inspired by a living marionette, decided that the best kind of puppet is not one that turns into a real boy. Instead, he takes children and turns them into puppet slaves, including Hen's son.
>>37612521I love the direction we're taking this>
Currently working on a Virginia villain. Not a JoJo character, but he is a musical reference. Nothing seems to get the creativity flowing like music.

If they are attacking from the woods or during an active robbery, his Lackeys get an attack of opportunity.Rock and Roll will Never Die: Spend a will point; Apply Music against Tin-Ear characters with only a -5 in effectiveness!---Equipment---Fabulous Outfit: +3 Persuasion, +1 Prevent Harm, +1 EndureFlintlock Pistol: +1 RangedFancy Knife: +2 Melee
>>37611064>>37611666You lost me at the shadows.
>>37611064Why control their shadows? He's a puppeteer. The strings attach to the victim and control their movements.
>>37613546I'm not sure. So he screws over people that don't read the contract?I was going to make a Shadowlands Villain based on D'Arby or Miraschon. Nothing says high stakes quite like gambling.
>>37613380these are strings you cannot see, strings that bind the soul, ans the shadow is a reflection of the soul, is it not?>>37613339Apologies for the poor wording, when you defeat the Coachman Hen decides to enact his revenge for the Coachman luring his son away while his back was turned, and what way is more fitting than using the Coachman's gift to enact the foul deed. the players are witness to this and must convince Hen that if the Coachman is killed then he will not know where his son was shipped to and that in order to fix the evil the Coachman has enacted he must be brought to justice, all this is happening as the Coachmans face turns blue and his hands inexorably crush his own windpipe
>>37613733Henson wasn't one to use strings, though. A better way for him to work would be that he has a number of handpuppets, which he can only use one at a time, that grant crazy bonuses and abilities.
>>37613733I understand what you mean, but I would prefer real stings physically attached to people. Shadows are Facilier's territory, and I think that normal strings would be more appropriate in this situation anyway.>>37613843Maybe Stromboli should be the only one doing the player controlling, activated by Will Point.
>>37613666I think he would come across as a Kindly, jovial man, someone with whom you can share a drink, share a laugh have all your debts just wash away and if you want more you just have to ask>>37613872I see your point about Stromboli, maybe the people he Can take control of are indicated by a tattoo of a snake with a foxes tail somewhere on their body>>37613843ah I hadn't though of this, maybe his hand puppets are infused with their own personalities, but for bonuses I think we should keep things simple
>>37614272I know you didn't mean to capitalize Kindly, but that would make a good name for somebody pretending to be nice guy. I doubt he would be able to prey on the locals, but suckers are born every minute. Once I'm done with done with D'Arby, I will start statting up Mr. Kindly.
>>37614455well I'm sold on including Mr Kindly, go for it
Name: Jean D. J’ArbyRole: Smart/CharmingCountry of Origin: ShadowlandsSize: MediumSpecies: Human---Attributes---Robustness: 8Agility: 8Intelligence: 12Sensibility: 12Charm: 14Will: 4Strikes: 3+1x---Skills---Endure: 10Legerdemain: 10Deceit: 7Persuasion: 6Occult: 5Insight: 6---Traits---Trusssssssssst Me: +2 bonus on Deceive rolls if there target actively distrusts the speakerDon't You Disrespect Me, Little Man!: +3 to Intimidate if the character has taken a Social strike in this Situation.Shadow Guard: This unit is protected by a minor Friend from the Other Side. This Friend has 14 Robustness, 10 Agility and +8 Prevent Harm. It will block any strike made with a physical attack and can take 24 Strikes before dissipating, although it takes double strikes from light or fire-based weapons.Don’t Play A Player: +10 against social attacks so long as the player does not know to exploit his weakness - He is obsessed with games of chance, and would do anything to prove his superiority as a gambler.It’s J’Arby (!): -1 Endure every time somebody mispronounces J’Darby’s name on purpose.
>>37615613---Powers---I Bet My Soul (!): J’Darby’s methods of paying back his debts are notably severe. He will approach gullible looking strangers and ask them to wager their souls on a game. Should they lose the bet, the Friends shall seize their souls and turn their bodies into poker chips. J’Darby is also subject to the rules of the bet, but either party may cheat freely. If a character is caught in the act of cheating, they must pass an Endure Test of 35 to justify their action in their heart. To admit defeat in your heart is the same as losing. J’Darby may spend a Will Point to add +10 to his Endure for the purpose of this Test. Only by beating J'Arby at his own game can the players regain the souls from The Other Side.Heart of the Cards (!): Spend a Will Point. J’Darby adds +5 to his poker result after his roll.---Equipment---Trained Cat: J’Darby will lay out two slices of meat next to a seemingly stray cat. He will then ask one of the players if they would bet their soul on which meat the cat will take. Should the player decline, J’Darby will make a Persuasion roll against them. No matter which meat the player chooses, J’Darby wins the bet.D’Jarby’s Card Deck: Poker is played with Intelligence or Charisma + Legerdemain + 3d6. This specific deck is fixed by the Friends to be favorable to J’Darby, so he gains +3 to his poker roll when he is the one shuffling.Chewing Gum: Used to stick extra cards under the table.Bar Patrons: Should the players ask someone else to shuffle the deck (besides themselves and J’Darby), roll 1d6. On a 6, then J’Darby will gain +2 to his poker roll because he has hired that bar patron ahead of time.J'Darby's Poker Chip Collection: +2 Intimidate
We need to archive this thread.
>>37615613>>37615657I really like this, nice job, Good luck with Mr Kindly>>37616698wait until we actually hit bump limit
I like the Jim Henson idea but aren't we making a Muppet expansion?
brit bumpAlso, I think Mr Kindly should be a mix of BRIAN BLESSED and Bleeding Gums Murphy, and his backing track for his villains song should be very upbeat and jazzy and draw you into the rhythm
>>37620410Yep, apt comparison.

KindlyRole: Charming/Sensible GuyClass: Circus RingleaderCountry of Origin: ShadowlandsSize: MediumSpecies: Human---Attributes---Robustness: 14Agility: 10Intelligence: 12Sensibility: 14Charm: 16Will: 3Strikes: 3+2x---Skills---Ranged: 6Prevent Harm: 6Endure: 6Legerdemain: 6Deceit: 10Persuasion: 10Intimidate: 7Occult: 8Linguistics: 8Insight: 7Music: 7---Traits---Cold Hearted Taint: +3 to any checks made to directly take advantage of the poor, the misfortunate, and/or the downtrodden.The Greatest Show On Earth (!): +2 Persuasion for the scene after a circus performance.Diamond in the Rough: You gain a +2 bonus to skills tests to appraise the value (statistical or otherwise) of an item. Science for chemicals, Academics for books (Linguistics for foreign ones), etc.Definitely a Good Guy- This villain gains +3 on all attempts to convince others that he is definitely not a villain.---Powers---There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute (!): Spend a Will Point. Mr. Kindley's Contract of Debt becomes tailored to a single target, and he gets +5 Persuasion to make them sign it.Send in the Clowns (!): Mr. Kindley may use a Will Point to summon 2d6 clown Mooks that arrive in a comically small automobile.---Equipment---The Contract of Debt: A 50 page contract that is harmless, if wordy, at first glance. As you look deeper, the script will constantly change shape and size, making it nigh impossible to read. It can be deciphered with a Linguistics Test of TN30. According to Mr. Kindly, it's a contract to give you your heart's desires. In reality, you would be signing over your worldly possessions. If you don't have anything of value, it's a labor contract to work in his circus for the next decade. There's a non-disclosure form in there as well, with the Friends enforcing his contract to the letter.Showman's Pistol: +2 RangedShoman’s Whip: +2 Melee, +2 Intimidate to Beasts

I put the following on 3 different Google Drives for organizational purposes. They all link to each other. The best part is that I'm posting this on the right thread this time.Sample Characters: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1m8XSm73Ea4ECdDdP9V4IVJCEBji6HPw43LRPyUCDmx4/editReference Characters: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VdJsobHmnSQCtotRGI2878SUb2QqZO9di1wRI8VHrjI/editJoJo Characters: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hNQebUY5R9SDqTXB9GJ8_8207CQ7ILG-351v9f-OJfE/edit
>>37624065Why are those listed as our sample characters? Literally one of them is of the ones we decided were going to be our samples.
>>37624391They aren't THE sample characters, but I thought it would be nice to let people put their character sheets there. The more examples, the better. It's the same doc as the one in the OP.
Any ideas that don't involve superheroics or space hijinks that can be expounded on in the Gridlocked setting?
>>37630135I'd like some expansion on Drossel's domain. I admit I kind of rushed my KLR on her. It could be expanded on by anyone who has a better knowledge of her source material then I.
Has this thread been archived yet?
>>37631816I don't think we're at Bump limit yet.
>>37594064Huh. Any material for our dear Drossel yet?
