GardenMaster-NORG##EdeaGarden Quest 2: Balamb Garden OP Forgets to make a twitter because he's a derp.Previous Threads: > http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Garden%20QuestPreviously on Garden Quest.Selphie took you out on a tour of Balamb City which turned into an impromptu date as well as lesson on the junction system and magic in general which you now truly confirmed was your weakness, something you plan on improving in your time here in Balamb. Also you’ve gained two new guardian forces as well as finding seeD candidate’s who were presumed lost and other missing victim’s in Siren’s Cove. The time is now currently 5:00 in the morning and you were waking up only to remember that both you and Selphie just crashed on the couch, which was large and very comfy even if Trabia was known as a nation full of weird and “child at heart” people their furniture blew Galbadia’s out of the water. Speaking of, your room was bare although thoughts of furnishing were pushed to the side as your terminal buzzed again this time the tell tale chime of emails being received into your Mailbox.Balamb Garden Network Theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfS1nWtqZwU>NEW-BalambGardenGeneral>Subject: General Information>New:SirenSongSera>Subject: Thank you…>NEW: Solitary Lion>Subject: …>NEW:StarBuilderSei>Subject: Sorry about mom...>Cid Kramer>Subject: Good Work!>Quitis Trepe>Subject: Rough day huh?>Zell Dincht>Subject: Training>Rinko Iori>Subject: Upgrades and Repairs!>Fujin>Subject: Curiosity>Raijin>Subject: ASSHOLE?!>Irvine Kineas>Subject: So cold…>Mjr Ramba Ral>Subject: The Honor is mine.Seifer Almasy>Subject: Retarded Bitch>which email do you wish to read first?
>>32238729... So many emails to read>See seifer's email.If he keeps talking shit about Selphie he's gonna get rektLet's Read Cid's email first.
>>32238729We must have gotten some emails from last night but were too tired to respond to. Let's read but don't respond yet.Also OP you do need to work on your writing but keep on truckin.
Seems I started this quest a bit early... I might as well try again later today and hopefully I'll have a twitter this time. But if in case this thread does go into the aether with replies. I'll restart after observing the foolz archive.Also! The character's that were created in my 1st attempt to run garden quest will be used in some fashon as NPC's/ Possible party members.
>>32239115I hope you prewrote all those damn emailsalso, seconding >>32238813your writing style fits the emails perfectly, but your normal writing could use some work in grammar and structure.
>>32239183I know I need some work in my writing in general but yes, several emails are already per-written.
>>32239237all in all, the quest is great, though. Interesting things are happening, and the whole ride is fun, regardless of fairness.
>>32239237Which makes me wonder, just how far away are we from the seeD Field Exam?
>>32239312To be quite honest the Seed Field exam is not that far off, but you still need some experience and training before you're eligible. Not to mention the Fire Cavern Pre-req.
So I dug out my old PS2 to replay FF8 for the first time in like 7 years, and it occurred to me that the only reason they made Seifer a squad leader in the exam was so they could do a "your commanding officer is mentally retarded, wut do?" pop quiz on Squall and Zell.Fucking Seifer, I swear to god.
>>32239450Agreed good Anon.
>>32238729Alright first time catching this! Let's start with the General Information one.
>>32239504Thread is paused until later on today good anon but your choice is noted, also it's a friend's b-day so I'll be out and about.Besides my obvious writing flaws and such I'll like to hear your suggestions and or theories on where this quest may head?
>>32238729>NEW-BalambGardenGeneralMay as well start there, then we can work our way down the line. Except for Seifer's email, we can probably ignore that until we get bored and need a good chuckle later on.
>>32239580Ok, I'll bite.Will we meet Rinoa anytime soon?Also from the first thread there's more than just the usual trifecta of Balamb,Galbadia and Trabia Gardens.What can you tell us of the other garden's especially Gingala?
>>32239580>Thread is paused until later on todayOh. Alright then. Honestly, I've never played FF8 so I don't really know what to expect from this quest other than Seifer being a douche, Squall being Squall, Crazy Sorceress Lady, and sill FF weapons.
>>32239783Expect shit to get crazy, especially if hopefully speaking we reach the Lunatic Pandora Arc.
>>32239738Yes you will meet Rinoa.Gingala Garden is a garden that specializes in technology moreso than even Galbadia. It's also here in Gingala where research into combat frames and alternate form's of magic with cooperation from Trabia garden is being held.TL;DR Robot exo suits and tech-magic
>>32239960Can we get a world map with locations of the nations that don't prominently feature in FF8? I don't recall Gingala.
>>32241532This is a brand new world in some ways so.. a bit of a new map needs to be madeSo we need a map fag
>>32238729I vote We read every email all at once in the order the QM has them.
>>32241532Gingala is an original nation as with the others I posted in the 1st thread.A map/art fag would be nice
>>32243183A map/art fag won't know where to put original nations on the map.
>>32243167Also when the thread restarts there will be new emails.
>>32243308That going to be soon or later on tonight? God damn evening shift
>>32243183I can't totally blame you. The default setting is pretty barren. There's some interesting dynamics post-ending (Galbadia's military leadership has just imploded while at least two of its provinces are in covert rebellion, monsters just rained down on Esthar which is the only other nation with a standing military, two of three Gardens are destroyed) but I understand why you wouldn't want to launch from that point.
>>32243308Man all the emails. We are a popular guy.
>>32238729>All them emailsFuck fuck fuck, how do people with many friends keep up with this shit.Read it all, son. Read it all.
I want to say, I'm even more invested in joining the Disciplinary Committee now.>Doing push-ups face-to-face with the rulebreakers >Set the minimum pace for running laps, anyone that falls behind Leo has to do further exercises.>Foil for roommate (I totally expect her shit would end up everywhere). "If one article of clothing crosses the median line, it will trigger a 'random' room check." "Ugh, this isn't fair, no one else has to deal with rooming with a freaking drill sergeant.">Pissing off Seifer by taking it deadly seriously and upholding the highest standards of responsibility.Came up with an exercise/punishment for rulebreakers of comparable physical fitness too. "Zell! No T-boards on school grounds! That'll be 100 slows. I'll see you at noon, Saturday, for Caterchipllar hunting."This is dependent on drawing being something that you can workout, since I want them all to be exercises, but I think it's a cool institution for the Garden, since drawing is tedious as fuck and spells are otherwise expensive, have rulebreakers harvest stacks of spells for faculty distribution.>>32243308Oh god, so many emails, Inbox Simulator 3000. Maybe you should just include them in the regular narrative whenever Leo's got minute to check so they're less of a speedbump.And Norg, you either gotta get a twitter or set prescheduled times for threads, man.
>>32243372>seeing email from Squallweird. Why would he send one at all?
>>32243394The only thing I can imagine is Irvine prodding him to trade rooms, though I wouldn't actually expect him to bother. Other than that I could only suspect him to have anything to say to say if we were teamed together, but I don't think anything like that would have happened yet.
>>32243353>>32243361>>32243363>>32243386To be fair news travels fast in balamb also i think the emails will slow down.And later on tonight hopefully
>>32243523Yay! I might be able to participate this time.
>>32243523Oh, I was wondering what kind of system your running. I'm an FF8 sperg so I was already worrying about our AP allocation, but I don't even know how your handling GF abilities in the first place. And I was kind of hoping you'd do something such that gaining zero exp (at least until you'd got all the [stat] Bonus abilities) wasn't the best strategy, it's kind of an awkward constraint and relies on enemy scaling which doesn't make much sense from an in-universe perspective.
Woah woah woah, ya'll niggers going after best girl?Cause if so, I'm gonna have to catch up to this
>>32244233Harem ending or nothing!
>>32244374You mean manwhore route, right?not that these are mutually exclusive, really, but just not the typical dynamic
>>32244233MC knocked up Edea in thread 0.so far people have expressed intent to taking the playboy route and screwing anything that comes their way, NTRing Cid for good, romancing/seducing BBEG (whoever that might be) and/or taking Selphie as a little sister.Also Quistis is the best girl.
>>32244233Selphie is our roomie
>>32244498>Quistis>Emotionally unstable bitch who's obsessed with her big sister complexNah fuck that. Selphie is adorably psychotic.Anyway, best girl is Ultimecia.
>>32244498>taking Selphie as a little sister.If you mean a little sister that we fuck, then yes.
>>32238729All the emails
>>32244643>Little Sister that we fuck
Also FYI there are more Guardian Forces in this Game also you may gain a secondary weapon.
>>32248667I hope we use spears. Spears are the best.
>>32248738methinks a ranged weapon is in order, or a plain dagger for stealth kills.
>>32248789A machine gun.And for stealth, a silenced machine gun. Because impractical weapons is very final fantasy
>>32248900I vote for a silenced chainsword
>>32249733A gunspear, fully automatic and has Silence cast on it
>>32249781but muh silenced rip and tear
>>32249965But Anon, is it really Rip and Tear if you can't hear the sweet grinding and revving of your chain-whatever?Also, I managed to make it back before the thread started! Awesome!
>>32250493Sound effects are supposed to be custom
>>32249965>>32250493The Silence is mostly for the gun part of the gunspear.
>>32250597We were talking about the silenced chainsword suggested here >>32249733Also, while I like the horrible gestalt of a fully automatic Silenced Gunspear, We're 5 FF's two early for Gun-weapons that are actually guns.
>>32250702Have you no vision?!?! No ambition?!?This is a final fantasy quest here, you're supposed to embrace the most ridiculous weapons imaginable, not merely take a weapon from 40k!
>>32244233>implying the best girl isn't Ramba Ral
>>32250702You know Laguna uses an actual gun right? And Esthar soldiers used a shotgun-pickaxe sickle... thing.
>>32243372>Read it all, son. Read it all.Except Seifer's.Because fuck him, that's why.
>>32250800I suggested it and I was thinking of a ripper from fallout
>>32250899Having not played FF8 I'm unaware on any weapons other than Squall's, Seifer's, and Selphie's. Still, my point stands. We have guns, and Gunblades that are just weird swords, but no gunsblades that are also guns. At least, not canonicaly.
>>32250936Well fuck, that's a step down from a chainsword. Why not a pussy bitch dagger like this faggot >>32248789 is suggesting if you're going go for maximum lame?
>>32250993Oh god, it's been so long I've forgotten most of them.Zell is like a kung-fu monkey, Quistis uses some kind of metal-whip thing. (Which I wouldn't be suprised she got training from Ral with.)Riona uses some crazy chackram bullshit.Irvy uses actual guns.And of those wierd dream people, one of those guys uses a FUCKHUEG harpoon thingy.
>>32251097Oh yeah, Riona also uses her dog to fight, I think, so yeah...
>>32251027I pictured it as a greatsword that is why I though about it
>>32250993In FF8, if you press L1 when squall's attcking at the right time, he fires his Gunblade while slicing, doing bonus damage IIRC.
>>32251149I'm sure his point was that it isn't an actual gun though. The rounds loaded in a gunblade don't fire a bullet, they make it 'vibrate' or some shit to increase damage.
>>32251173Yeah, the gunblade is basically a vibroblade that looks like a revolver sort of.When I say gunspear, I mean a spear with an actual gun integrated in it, because it's fucking awesome.
>>32251173Aaah, I thought that it was used to shoot while you slice like some kind of retarded 'Yo Dawg' manner.
>>32251173Exactly my point thank you. My earlier remark was that the gunblades that also fire projectiles were introduced in FF13, 5 FFs after FF8.
>>32251209Wait, like a Goa'uld staff weapon? Because they were pointed out in the series for being terribly impractical.
>>32251231Except Esthar uses gunblades that fire projectiles. In this game. It was standard issue years ago in canon.
>>32251247Well, it could work like Ruby's Sniper-scythe. At least in theory. Actually most of the RWBY weapons also make sense as FF weapons.
>>32251247It doesn't have to fire s small bit of energy, it cam be a bladed shotgun on a stick!Hell, a flamethrower on a bladed stick!
>>32251027>pussy bitch daggerfine, you want over the top?Floating smart shields that can block, parry, or be used for double/triple jumping
>>32251680SHIELDS? IN MY ANIME GAME?Listen up, I can see you have no idea how this works. If you want a weapon, it's got to be HUGE. It'll need to either be a massive two handed weapon, or two one-handed weapons that are dual-wielded. Not daggers though; they also need to be huge, or extra-gimmicky.You can't have shields, or helmets, or anything that would logically give you more protection though. THAT IS SIMPLY NOT HEROIC. YOU USE LESS ARMOR, LESS.
>>32251784>It'll need to either be a massive two handed weapon, or two one-handed weapons that are dual-wielded.Or you go the Advent Children route and do both. Gods that Fusion Sword was the definition of awesomely retarded.
>>32251784Cao Ren says hi.
>>32251784>THAT IS SIMPLY NOT HEROIC. YOU USE LESS ARMOR, LESS.>Not outlasting opponents with heroic will AND actual fucking armor.real heroes tank silly bullets, not dodge.>Not using shields to do complex acrobatics with military precisionI bet you fight giant monsters from kilometers away, charging your supermove when you could be literally walking up to their ass and kicking it.
>>32251097Squall: Gunblade, self-taughtSeifer: Gunblade, aped his style from Laguna's movie roleSelphie: Huge-ass nunchuksIrvine: ShotgunZell: Kung FuQuistis: Whips, of both 'chain' and 'spike at the end' variety.Riona: Chakram shooter gunLaguna: Man With The Machine GunWard: Harpoon/ship anchorKiros: Punch-daggersEsthar: Weird axe/shotgun things.Galbadia: Machine guns and swords with motorcycle handles.That One SEED Who Clotheslines A Galbadian Off His Motorbike During the Garden Fight Because He's A Bad Motherfucker: Longsword
>>32252016>Seifer: Gunblade, aped his style from Laguna's movie roleWhich would mean it's based on Galbadian military style, since Laguna trained in gunblades in the army.
>>32252153Wait, so does that mean we could possibly out-gunblade Seifer?Meh, even showing him up isn't worth the shittyness of the weapon.I'll stick to my throwable axes, thank you very much.
>>32252341Alternatively, we could constantly mock his style during a fight. Say how any freshman back home could kick his ass.
>>32252372That WOULD be some delicious hue right there.
>>32252683I believe he intended to update this one, barring it dropping off the board. Course, if we post too much, we should probably make a new one so we don't prematurely autosage.I believe that second post means he came up with more emails for us to receive when we get started again. Man we've got so much mail. And none of it is spam! (Yet)
>>32252683I think the gm died.
>>32252729>NEW: GalbadiaGus>Want better SeeD?
>>32252729>>32252735Whoops, I deleted my post because I didn't mean to quote the first guy and thought I could delete it before anyone responded.For the record, my question was me asking if the GM would start a new thread, or if he would update this one when they got back.
>>32252743Honestly, I'm almost expecting Edea to let us know she's pregnant via e-mail. And Selphie would be reading over our shoulder at the time.
>>32252743Fucking spam, I don't want to buy some fertilizer or boner pills or whatever you're selling.*delete*
>>32252743>>32252796Actually a mercenary company that hires the best of the best of SeeD
>>32252796NO, you need to buy the boner pills. They are made of actual bones.Later on they are combined with the ancient armor, the wires, the battery, 4 marbaro tentacles and 4 cocktrice feathers, and an old skeletal remains. This is how you unlock the Skeletron, the robot skeleton GF.
>>32252925And, of course, this is our only opportunity to purchase them. Because Square really loves to fuck with you.
>>32252844I was making fun of how Spam-y sounding the subject for that E-mail was.
Rolled 16>>32238729>Solitary Lion >RE: .....Whatever.
>>32253738Honestly, I'm curious as to what would make Squall actually send an email to us.
Rolled 10>>32253765Have a feeling he'll be a quiet Bro later on we just stand around, drink beer with and just go Yep all the time.Email wise...Shit I'm curious also a bit.Wanna see Raijin's mail and Seipher's. Gonna enjoy trollin' the fuck out of those two. Maybe nickname Raijin as Failjin? Might work.Also Fujin's Curiosity line is making me curious too.
>>32253883I just wanna know if Fujin types like she talks.Isn't she some sort of >impliedforeigner? I think she speaks in a Chinese style in the Japanese version.Also, she is the best girl, although that might just be my eyepatch fetish.
>>32238729>NEW:StarBuilderSei>Subject: Sorry about mom...Hold on a minute. How did I miss this? Is our mom dead?
Rolled 20>>32253916Oh she's up there, but we are all aboard the Edea Train AND THIS THING HAS NO BRAKES!
>>32253916Actually, we got an email from Fujin last thread.Also, I'm sorry guys if I refer to Fujin and Raijin as Fuu and Rai. I played Kingdom Hearts before any FF game, and its hard enough referring to Squall as Squall and not Leon.
>>32253963>Shit-tier Kingdom Hearts Disciplinary CommitteeStill makes me mad.Fuckin' lamers
>>32253937No, Rinko the quatermaster and arms manufacturer told us to visit her or her son would cry, this E-mail is probably from her son, embarrased by his mom's antics.If you don't recognize her, Rinko the the MC's mom from Gundam Build Fighters.
>>32254031>.>That face when I only know GBF from the quest, and have only recently resolved to watch all the Gundam. Still, glad there is a plausible explanation to that email. Gods, between this and my KH before FF thing, I'm really bad at being nerdy.
>>32254069Yeah, GBF is pretty much Gundam fanservice: The anime. So having a lot of Gundam Experience under your belt will make it more enjoyable.The fact that they got Ramba Ral's VA to reprise his role as Mr. Ral, 34 years after his appearence in 0079, is testamount of that fact.I truly didn't understand the meaning of fangasm until I saw Mr. Ral appear in episode 1 of GBF.
>>32253916What her speech actually sounds like is rather hard to determine. In written form it kind of LOOKS chinese-ish, but that doesn't mean it sounds any more like chinese, considering they're the same characters you write with in japanese and everyone can understand her. I think it's supposed to just be the maximum in terseness. And her lines aren't constantly ended with exclamation points or anything, so there's nothing to imply she's constantly yelling like you get in the english.
>>32254295I think he means with a Chinese accent? That's how I understood him anyway.
>>32254069Oh yeah, if you don't know what to watch first, the main consensus seems to be 0079 Trilogy > Zeta TV Series > Char's CounterAttackGundam ZZ (Double Zeta) can be watched after the original Zeta, and before CCA, but the series is rather divisive due to the change of tone from Zeta (which some people can find refreshing, mind you.) The 0079 trilogy cuts out a *lot* of filler, as well as improve the animation (which was pretty bad, even for a show animated in '79.) but you DO miss out on some backstory.After Char's Counterattack, I'd suggest Turn A Gundam, or G-Gundam. The only thing with G-Gundam though, is you should go into it expecting a hot-blooded and slightly goofy series, rather than more conventional Gundam fair. (It has been derided as being called Dragonball G.)
>>32254295Yeah. I read the Ultimania and I remember lots of little details.Like the title drop we didn't get in Edeamecia's inaugural speech.
>>32253883List of ideas for pissing off Seifer:1. Pretend to forget who he is. "I'm sorry, but who are you again?"2. Once that gets worn out, mix up his name with words and names that sound vaguely similar. Seither, Cypher, Sumpter, Somber, Saunter, Salter, and so on and so forth.3. I FUCKED THE SORCERESS, AND YOOUUUUUUUU DIDN'T! Though this will only become effective after he develops his little puppy crush on her, assuming that still happens.
>>32254380I'd rather just continue to ignore him in any context where he isn't acting with actual authority or a response isn't required.
>>32254380And once we get over being a father, 4. I knocked up the Sorceress! With Quadruplets!
>>32254380>Seifer>Not going full Knighto Husbando on the first Sorceress he meetsIt's like you don't even understand what a huge dork he is.
>>32254010>>32254415This reminds me, having not played FF8 and only reading minimal info from the wiki when I was looking up stuff randomly on week, Does Seifer and his Disciplinary Committee have actual authority here?
>>32254415Well it doesn't look like he has any intention of leaving us alone, and just pretending he's not there will only get us so far if he decides to get all up in our face. At some point we'll end up needing to direct words in his general direction.
>>32254380I agree to 1&2 a lot, we should basically try to act towards him like how Yang Wen-li does towards politics.Irreverancy ho!Pic related.
>>32254480Hell, as the one that wanted to ignore him, I'm fine just waiting until he asks a damn question. So far he's just directed words at us and gotten made we haven't reacted.
>>32254490here, I also agree with >>32254415Basically we ignore him, unless we're forced to. If he tries to get personal with us, we basically ignore/Yang him, otherwise we can be professional, while ignoring him at any time it doesn't interfere with our duties.
>>32254453Sort of. They basically just report shit to Cid though.Cid humors Seifer to an extent although the one thing they actually do pull off (getting Quistis fired for trying to hump a student and sent off on missions again) may have just been because Cid was planning on foisting Quistis on ol' '...' anyway.
Kinda wish that GM had a twitter so I would know wether to keep waiting, or to go to bed early.Also when this quest is running, because I don't check /tg/ that much, due to using twitter to follow quests, so when I noticed this thread, it was 12 hours old...
So, I just realized, we're at over a hundred posts, and we've had no Quest Posts other than the OP. This is honestly rather hilarious, but also really worrying since we haven't heard from GM-NORG in a while.
>>32254872He's probably dead.
>>32255085And turning into a Moomba.
Rolled 17>>32254872>over 100 posts without a Quest PostSounds like your typical Princess Guard Quest thread.
>>32254837What sucks is this is the third time this sort of thing has happened to me in the past 4ish days. The QM for Princes of the Earth vanished after we basically killed time waiting for our sword, Bionicle Quest's QM said we'd get another thread Sunday, still none, and now this.It's rather saddening really.
>>32255135Except this has less anime jrpg game autism, despite the fact that this quest is based on an actual jrpg.
>>32255170No to mention we'd probably accomplished more in 3 threads than Reinhold did, ever.
Anyway, since this thread probably isn't going to happen, anyone with knowledge of FF8 want to explain how AU we are? I'd wiki the game, but I'm trying to avoid smaller spoilers till they come up.
>>32255166I'm betting that he thought it wasn't going to pick up and left to go do something else, then everyone showed up.
>>32255239Probably pretty AU.For one Edea should be possessed by now - canonically she vanished for several years because of the stable time loop that is Ultimecia's rise only to show up again as Galbadia's Sorceress.So her showing up at all is a significant departure.
>>32255241To be fair, he did say here: >>32239580that its his friend's birthday. Entirely possible he got distracted and/or forgot he even posted today, depending on if drinking was involved.
>>32255262Ah, see that was something I didn't pick up reading the first thread. I know a lot of anons were confused by the 75th Anniversary of the Sorceress War (I don't know how long it was originally between that and FF8) and the 5 year something or other.
>>32255262There's also the question of whether OP understands the mechanics behind sorceresses and Time Compression.Because that's pretty vital to the plot.Oh and whether Laguna and co. are kicking around. That's hard to say since they'd be in Esthar right now and the only people privy to their past adventures are Squall and co. thanks to Ellone.
>>32255306>75th Anniversary of the Sorceress WarWell, that depends on which Sorceress War. If he means the Esthar/Galbadia war, we're WAY AU because Laguna would be like a hundred years old.
>>32255239Very. You may have noticed all the Gundam characters being mentioned for one. Norg pointed some differences from canon early on, or maybe he just stated some background, but he did that because it's different, like the Lunar Cry and the War timeline. The canon protag's missing father, Laguna, is staff at the Garden in canon he became the president of Esthar, so that's fucking with all kinds of shit. And he is using stuff from the /tg/ setting brainstorming threads like... any of the places that aren't Galbadia, Trabia or Balamb which have Gardens.
>>32255344Oh hey I wasn't here for the first thread.So yeah we're way off track.Maybe one of these days I'll try one based on my own post-FF8 setting notes.
>>32255170>>32255211OH SNAP SON!Truth be told, I do like Princess Guard Quest but that is pretty damn true!
So, an all important question:Do we archive this thread?
>>32255586Assuming OP doesn't return and do story posts between now and either autosage (160 posts from now) or in like 10 hours when keeping it bumped will become a pain due to /tg/ moving so much faster during daytime US hours, then no. As of now it'll be easier just to have him reuse the same first post rather than archiving for the sake of one OP post.But there are still plenty of hours left before we start hitting any sort of danger zone, so we don't need to think about that yet.
Holy hell I forgot how much goddamn work I put into my FF8 bullshithttp://s1.zetaboards.com/Thought_Bubbles/topic/4473907/1/I think about this game way too much
>>32255684Fair enough. I brought it up partially because we've had some interesting discussion and partially so no one forgets we were abandoned one day with no warning.
Rolled 10>>32253950>Oh she's up there, but we are all aboard the Edea Train AND THIS THING HAS NO BRAKES!>Nat 20I'm down for this and apparently the Dice Gods are too.
Sorry folks thread will be on tonight possibly around 9:00 pm CST . Went drink in with a friend for b day and today another friend is graduating from college
>>32257647Also I finally have a twitter @master_norg
>>32257732I going to have to show up late, I'm not going to get back until 11:00 PM CST. (Time zone differences.)
>>32257647>>32257732Sweet. I'll end up missing the first two hours or so, but I'll trust everyone else not to burn down the Garden in that time frame. And remember guys, fuck ALL the bitches except Rinoa because she's clearly got brain damage or something. Her and Squall are just right for one another in that regard..
>>32257974Holy crap, are you me?
Since Quest is paused until later on tonight, Does anyone have any questions about what may happen plot wise, suggestions (besides my writing which I'm trying to address), theories, speculations or just generally wanting to discuss stuff.
>>32258298prewrite those emails, and don't bother putting up new ones unless they're the real-time, conversation types.which of the weapons do you like?You're gonna have to lay down some ground rules on them dice sooner or later. We can't crit ALL the time(or at least, not at every single skill).
>>32258298I would ask questions, but it's been so long since I played FFVIII, and the post was so confusing, that you could pretty much make up anything, and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.Speaking of which, I really gotta replay FFVIII again some day, if only for the Junctioning/GF system and that fucking card game. And Zell, Zell was cool.
>>32258386As for crit's There will be negative modifiers, even if you get a natural 20 the modifier will subtract from the result.I'm already pre-writng those emails now. And by weapons do you mean the actual canon Weapons of FF8 Or just the ones that I sorta threw off the top of my head, if so The gunblade had potential in 8 but I prefer the version of FF-13 better since it seems a bit more practical if slightly over engineered. Also I'm currently thinking of where the other original garden's are and in case people don't know since this is an AU the world has different. Balamb is a near Australian sized Island continent near the equator on the western side, closer to Galbadia, While the abandoned continent of Esthar is to the East.
>>32258386Bah, we can if we get the rolls for it! Being incredibly lucky isn't a flaw in the system, it's the result of being incredibly lucky. I'm not saying that it's perfect, or that we shouldn't change it, but "We're rolling to well, so the system is at fault." is kinda an error.
>>32258429I meant the weapons suggested above
>>32258451Hmm can't really say at the current moment.
>>32258429Oooh, that seems like a bit of a relevant plot point in the future?
I just read the thread's and oh shit... I'm all for Harem/NTR endingOur next objective should be Fujin or Selphie.
>>32259188The only fetish shittier than NTR is scat, and harems are overrated.
>>32259188NTR is seriously the worst thing.I will support you on going for Fujin though.
Rolled 9>>32259356>The only fetish shittier than NTRWhen done improperly, which in most doujin it is handled rather poorly.Now stealing Edea from Cid? Well I'm down for that but I have a feeling their may be no real love there in the first place unlike the games. Now stealing Selphie from Irvine (yeah it hasn't help yet but I get the feeling it's definitely going to happen) just ain't right.
>>32259508Fujin does sound like a good match for Galbadian Steel that Never Breaks. I support this.
>>32259667In before somehow We make Fujin a Seed
>>32259549>Now stealing Selphie from IrvineCompletely justified I dislike Irvine
>>32260090I support this as well
Here's a question, what will make good secondary weapons for the actual canon cast?
>>32260841Now, before I head out for the day + a friends graduation I'll answer this question off the batLeonardo Titus (You)Primary: TomahawksSecondary: None as of yet?Selphie TilmittPrimary: NumchakuSecondary: TonfaQuitis TrepePrimary: Whips/Heat WhipsSecondary: Snake SwordsZell DinchtPrimary: GauntletsSecondary: KatarsIrvine Kineas:Primary: ShotgunsSecondary: Assault Rifles or Magnum PistolsSquall LeonhartPrimary: GunbladeNo SecondarySeifer AlmasyPrimary: GunbladeSecondary: GunrapierFujinPrimary: ChakramSecondary: TomahawksRaijinPrimary: Bo StaveSecondary: Kwan DaoSerafita Angel (The girl you rescued in Sirens Cove)Primary: Short SwordsSecondary: Pistols
>>32261100Quitis using a heat whip.Clearly she Is the student of the blue storm
>>32260841>SquallNone. Or other gunblade so he can dualwield.>Rinoaelectric paralyser or a mace spray>Quistisdagger for shanking things she pulls in with a whip>SelphieShuriken>Irvinea scoped revolver or a hunting rifle. Or the sniper rifle he had in the assasination cutscene.
>>32261100Squall would be the only one not to have a secondary
>>32261100Fujin Tomahawks?... Aww yis
Rolled 6>>32261100>Secondary: GunrapierOh, how cute.
>>32261363It sorta makes sense, Seifer's stance does look something like a fencers
>>32259549It isn't stealing if they don't get together in the first place, pre-emptive NTR. Generally, I find NTR to be worse than Hitler, but I hate most of the male FF8 cast.
>>32261100>>32261292Okay, I could justify it, but really, it's because we've been interested in her, isn't it?
>>32261719I'd agree, but we haven't actually met her yet. Unless she doesn't get them till later.>>32261554Gotta agree with this. For most of the cast, it'll just be us romancing someone before their original love interest. And, as someone pointed out earlier, Edea doesn't seem to actually care for Cid much.
>>32261818>Edea doesn't seem to actually care for Cid muchThat's true, in fact it kinda looked like she had it planned from get go. However...1. in character we don't even know she's Cid's wife, do we?2. out of character we may suspect she's possessed by ultimecia or whoever OP has planned as BBEG
>>32261853Maybe, but then there's the weird dreams + Hearing Ultemecia's Screams MC has been enduring. Ultemecia maybe the BBEG But I don't think Edea's possessed. I think she may have her own agenda of wanting to stop ultemecia and it involves the MC and gang.What I do wonder is how would NORG (the actual norg) will come into play
>>32261818>but we haven't actually met her yetI meant from a meta perspective providing that commonality was probably why norg chose them for her.
>>32261966you mean that fat fuck where we gained Leviathan from? No clue?But seriously though we need to get our berings straight in Balamb, bro it up with Zell... Have an awesome foil as Selphie for best girl/roomies with benefits. Make Fujin all tsundere for us and Cuddle in the bosom of our milf waifu edea
>>32262079OH! alright yeah, that's plausible at least.
>>32261165>Quitis Trepe>Primary: Whips/Heat Whips>Secondary: Snake Swords>Heat WhipObviously she is a stud->>32261165Oh, Goddammit.>GunrapierDammit Seifer, THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS!
Rolled 17>>32261381Oh I'm not gonna knock fencing and all but they do unfairly get shit from having a very thin and weak looking weapon. While I know that's not true or fair, we can use that sterotypical hate for them and REALLY piss the shit out off Seifer. You KNOW he's going to be very damn sensitive about it.
>>32265917"Why is your gunblade so thick and massive? Are you compensating for your *other* weapon?"
>>32265346Selphie+Tonfa = ORAORAORA!Quitis+Heatwhip = This is no Zaku bitchSeifer Gunrapier? Ahahaah
>>32266232Why does the mental image of Selphie just screaming out Ora Ora all perky and hyper while pissed the fuck off arouses me so much

>>32267348Rink you scary
>>32267427... let's visit rinko first
>>32267348Like I said, I'll be getting back at around 11pm if my timezone conversion is correct. And IIRC another guy won't be showing up until around that time.
>>32267427My words exactley on rinko
>>32267348... god damn cid
>>32267757Yeah, and make sure we NEVER let her son get hurt. No amount of protagonist plot armor is protecting us from that. Gods, that loadout ...
