>>57159049Personally, i didn't get to do anything christmas themed regarding tabletop. It was too busy. One GM i knew was doing something in 3.5 or 5e though. How about you guys?
>>57159079On another note, now that we've had some time off and everyone has had time to settle after the holidays, how were said holidays for you guys? Get anything neat? Do anything cool?How was your guys' holidays?
>>57159049Woops, forgot the class rundown thing. And for that matter, the storytime Imgur. I also didn't notice the Isekai anon one was out of order. I'll get to tagging MIO when i've got a bit more time.https://imgur.com/a/Siplihttps://imgur.com/a/klFBF
There any good "support" style combinations that aren't strictly healing? Digital Sorcerer looks kinda weak.
>>57159708It only seems that way. Reducing the costs or giving overflow to allies in and of itself is far stronger than you give credit. Most spirit fixers just bump a dice up or down by 1, but instead you are giving others free dice of any number, or outright paying a portion of the cost, which means your main damage dealer can nuke far more often. If you want something to go with that though, i would suggest divine talker B. Its got a fair amount of buffs, a res with a long range, a better but more expensive heal than elder mage B, a major damage boosting buff, and thats just taking into account its stuff from the first expansion. Expansion 5 has even more talents for it, most of which have to do with defenses, healing.So elder mage B, time wizard A/B, Digital sorceror A/B, and Divine talker B. Those are the "Support" type classes, so to speak.
>>57159079>>57159095Christmas puts my games on hold until since its impossible to find a gap in everyones schedules that fits nearly, but I might have a new game starting in the year if all goes well
>>57161080Well shit, nice for you dude. Christmas games are fun, but if they can't happen its understandable. Still, a new game is almost always a good thing.
>>57159049Okay, i've got a very short storytime for you guys.I dunno if any of you know of touhou, or even care, but i was planning to do a touhou campaign using a system that was made specifically for it. Some of our members from another game were out of town and will be till midway through january, and the idea was thrown around of a one-shot in the time off with whoever we could scrounge up. So i'd stepped up and said i was willing to try something, using this system me and a friend had found and were interested in.Unfortunately, whoever had written this system failed to test it and the rules are an ungodly mess. It seemed a simple system good for a quick one shot at first glance, but that was simply not the case. So i had an idea. Kamigakari is made with refluffing in mind. So all i needed to do was fluff whatever options they took as something that would exist in a psuedo-old world japan, as well as the various races. So now i've got plans to do a touhou themed kamigakari campaign. One player actually knows anything about touhou and the system, the other two are ignorant at best on both, so we'll see how this goes. Once we've actually gotten it up and running, i'll post more about it if anyone is interested.
>>57161446I should mention, everyone involved is more or less enthusiastic, they just don't really know a lot about kamigakari or touhou
>>57159049Aw, r-right! I forgot I needed to make the thread...But hey, it's done just like my style. Hey all, it's me, Meijin Threadmaker III! Had a small session today, but couldn't get it that long, 'cos the GM's busy with finals and all. Plus, there's the whole "didn't prepare the whole scenario" and all. At least everyone's characters were introduced all proper-like, though!
>>57163693S'all good man. I, meijin threadmaker the first, keep an eye out for this kinda thing.
>>57164572Probably a good thing we had a few days off anyways. What with holidays and 3 threads in a row, hopefully the time recharged peoples batteries, so to speak
>>57159049Joined the kamigakari game that was recruiting last thread, didn't have a session last week due to Christmas, hopefully this week will be the first session
>>57165508Here's hoping man. The more people that play, the merrier.
>>57159049Any news from kansai anon and/or ruth anon?
I said that I would give it a shot, so here we go! I hope I can tell it well enough.The first scene of the very first episode of the Isekai Campaign starts in typical isekai fashion: in a classroom, with Shedo-sensei (pic related) giving minor announcements to the students. This is classroom 2-A, one of the sophomore classes in Manzanar High, which is one of the more prestigious high schools in the urban city of San Fransokyo. Twenty desks line the classroom, five of which straddle the windows for optimal protagonist daydreaming. Not wanting to miss out from that window-staring action, Rei, Hayate and Ruth all sit next to the western wall, while Su tends to pay more attention in class and thus sits one row over. Not having met yet, all four are politely silent while announcements are said, evidently not having anyone to converse with unlike the rest of the class which chatters incessantly."Firstly," the teacher begins, "We've got a new student in our class. As is custom, she will be known as 'new girl' for here on until she does something to prove her worth. This also means that the one kid in class 2-B will need to be referred to by his real name from now on. So I suggest all of you learn it. And when you do please tell me so I can know."Taking her cue, our final missing character enters from stage right...
>>57168350>"Firstly," the teacher begins, "We've got a new student in our class. As is custom, she will be known as 'new girl' for here on until she does something to prove her worth. This also means that the one kid in class 2-B will need to be referred to by his real name from now on. So I suggest all of you learn it. And when you do please tell me so I can know."Okay, this is already something i don't remember isekai anon mentioning. This is pretty fucked up.Also, for the sake of storytimes, could you use a name? Makes it easy to find it all and screencap it later.
>>57168350Ryuko, evidently the new girl, walks into the classroom after some goading from the teacher, at first avoiding eye contact with the room until she's standing center-stage, at which point she flips her hair over her shoulder and holds her bag in front of her with a small bow. She introduces herself as Ryuko Inari, and several students immediately start to whisper amongst themselves, trying to make guesses about the new girl. After some more goading from the teacher, she admits that she likes to sing in her free time."Hey hey! That's what I like to hear." Otto Oto, a musically-oriented student who runs the school's radio show, speaks up amongst the chatter, "Done any shows yet?""Shows...? I don't know if you could call them that," Ryuko speaks with the slightest of accents, evidently hard to place the origin of, "I perform, yes."Su furiously fiddles with her pen, trying to contain her journalist urges to assault the poor girl with questions. Rei stares in silence, while Ruth glares at the new girl. It's hard to tell if Hayate is even looking at her or not through the sunglasses."Alright students," the teacher interrupts, "Seeing as our new student is already performing outside of her school that makes her more interesting than most of you. As such, new person status has been switched back to...what's his name.""Aww, poor whats-his-face," says Su."Nice to have you miss Inari," Shedo-sensei continues, "You can take any seat that's available."One of the students points out that there's only one seat available, between Ruth and Rei, and asks if the teacher is up to something. Shedo-sensei quickly tells him to shush, and Ryuko's forced to sit in an anime protagonist seat-- near the back corner, next to a window. Ruth's glare follows her until she sits down, while the rest of the classroom continue their hushed whispers and stares at the pretty new girl.>>57168378Righto, nametag initiated.
>>57168422>"Aww, poor whats-his-face," says Su.I lost my shit at this.
>>57168422 "Next announcement," the teacher declares, "There will be a practice fire drill early this morning. I should also inform you that the vice principal is in a very bad mood today seeing as how she woke up alive this morning."The various students give waves of varying levels of shyness towards Ryuko as she sits down, Su being more outgoing on that spectrum, while Rei bites his finger and internally flips out that Ryuko's sitting right in front of him."I don't want anyone giving her an excuse to do anything," Shedo-sensei continues, "The last time I saw her in this foul a mood she had some poor kid dust all the erasers in the school.""Wha'd the poor sucker do?""He had chalk dust on his clothes.""Oh."The teacher continues to explain the proper procedure, stressing not to dally lest you evoke the wrath of the school's vice-principal. He also stresses to avoid bears, but that if you do find a bear, it probably doesn't matter what happens next, you're on your own. He glances nervously out the window as he adds that the zoo is only a few blocks from here, to the utter confusion of Ryuko. Everyone else seems used to this behavior, and Su whispers to her that he's only joking...probably?"If there are no other questions, we will begin with today's daily quiz question," Shedo-sensei speaks up once more, and the entire class looks towards him in unison, "As always, the person who can answer it gets a two-minute head start to the cafeteria before lunch. I hear it's jelly donut day."Properly incentivized by the prospect of the school's famous jelly donuts, which oddly contain neither jelly nor dough, the class sits with anxious attention.
>>57168577"Now, who can tell me...the English translation of our school's name?"Thus was the party's first formal introductions to the mechanics of Kamigakari, rolling their Spirit Dice pool and making a simple Intellect check which they were then allowed to influence with said spirit dice. To nobody's surprise Su's hand shoots up first, being the smarty pants she is."Apple Orchard, Sensei!""Correct Chen Su!" the teacher shouts, dramatically pointing with a piece of chalk. He clears his throat after that outburst, and explains that Manzanar was built in the 1940's, though it was originally not planned to be a school, but rather an internment camp for the Japanese Americans during World War 2. A great deal of pressure was on leading officials to do something after the Pearl Harbor attack, but instead of giving in to international paranoia, the leaders of the state instead built a school for all prospective races, which eventually gave rise to San Fransokyo's population today."Let that be a lesson. No good deed goes unpunished. But no good deed is not worth doing. Now if you'll all excuse, I need to see something about a cup of coffee."One of the students, the same that questioned the teacher's motives earlier, points out that he's currently holding a cup of coffee. Shedo-sensei quickly tells him to shush and skedaddles out of the room, leaving the classroom now unsupervised.Several of the students devolve into chatting amongst themselves, while Chen Su gives Shedo-sensei exactly 0.1 seconds to be out of the room before she turns to Ryuko, extending a hand in cheery greeting. Though Ryuko remains somewhat quiet, Su has energy to spare and excitedly explains the classroom's various students and quirks, notably skipping Ruth's quirk of beating up crippled people."You know quite a bit," Ryuko comments somewhere within the wall of text. Su beams, and redoubles her gumption.Meanwhile, Rei's been pulled into a...different conversation.
>>57168754"So I see you eyeing the new girl," Haiyu Hamilton, head of the school's Drama Club, leans over to Rei, "Are you seeking some rrrrromance?"In traditional fashion, Rei flinches and stutters, trying to cover a flushed face."W... What? N, no? Isn't that more than a little sudden, Haiyu?!...""Ah, but if it was too son, how could you call it love at first sight? I see it all now! A high school romance growing like the same cherry blossoms you'll walk between, holding hands and growing closer, until you're forced to choose between her and your friends, only to realize too late that it was the balance of both that kept you sane and alive all these years. Only it's far too late to crawl out of the bottle you've dug yourself into, and you'll and wallow in the fact that you'll never find the fantasy that was in each others eyes ever again, and so you go back to the bar only to find her there and you rekindle your romance for a time. But then, shock! She dies of cancer only a few short months later too soon for you tell her how you really feel about her!"There's a moment of awkward silence between the two, Haiyu having taken quite a dramatic pose on top of his desk while glitter inexplicably falls through the air around him. Meanwhile another student, Torio Uta, has jumped into the conversation between Su and Ryuko, followed by Otto Oto. Ryuko's proving quite quickly to be a popular conversation topic, and they posit ideas of her lending her voice to the school's radio show on occasion. She says that she'd rather keep school and work separate, to the dismay of Otto, but he proves persistent."I didn't realize you were all so...lively," Ryuko comments, now surrounded by a small mob of students."...not quite everyone, I would say," one of the other students replies, thumbing towards Ruth who's sitting only a desk away. She turns to glare towards all the noise, and the group falls silent.
>>57168885Though there's no other reaction from Ruthless, Rei takes advantage of the new silence, waving his hand through the crowd to introduce himself."Hi, I'm Reiyou, Reiyou Mori. C-call me Rei."Ryuko waves politely back, "Hello, Reiyou."There's a moment of awkward silence. Su offers a chocolate chip cookie from her ever-present tupperware container. Ryuko seems ready to politely decline, but before she can do so a shrill ring throughout the classroom stifles any answer.Ruth stands up so quickly she knocks over her chair, while the rest of the class prepares to leave in a more normal fashion. The class representative, Jade Suryoku, takes charge of the class since the teacher's away, trying to organize everyone into something resembling an orderly class. Rei bolts for the door as soon as she gives the okay, Chen Su is more of a 'near the back of the pack' kind of girl, Ryuko tries to follow the crowd to the best of her abilities, Hayate saunters in typical cool-guy fashion, and Ruth wades through what is comparatively a sea of midgets. In any case, everyone makes similar progress during the fire drill in trying to keep up with the crowds pouring into the hallways, all trying to evade the wrath of the vice-principle.A few Awareness rolls are tossed around in the chaos, Ryuko and Hayate getting the best of them with Ruth and Rei towards the lower end, but it quickly becomes evident that none of the five PCs have their school supplies with them anymore-- backpacks and pastry-holding tupperware containers alike have vanished. Some panicked investigation (and another Awareness check) reveals a trail of scattered pencils and papers in the opposite direction of the crowd that has quickly abandoned everyone, leaving only Rei, Ryuko, Ruth, Su, and Hayate standing alone. Already late for the fire drill and now having been evidently stolen from, the five make the separate but unanimous decision to chase down their belongings.
>>57170254The literal paper trail leads them on a confusing trip across the school yard, the group always just *barely* missing whoever's got their bags, only to discover another trail of spilled school supplies to follow. Hoping to return before the class has noticed they're missing, everyone picks up the pace except Su, who's left gasping for air. Coincidentally enough there's not much farther to travel, as the group comes across the school's old gymnasium, currently unused. The door still creaks as if someone had just opened it, and Ryuko is the first to push past Rei and head inside, followed by Ruth who nearly knocks him over with the action.Though the lights aren't on, the sunlight from the doorway serves well enough. All five backpacks are in plain sight, conspicuously piled into the center of the gym."...Haiyu," Su calls out to the empty gym, "Is this one of your drama set-ups?""This is elaborate," Ryuko comments, looking around the gym."And random," Su adds."I...don't think Haiyu has the balls to steal from Ruth," Rei pipes up."He..." Chen Su ponders, "...can let drama overtake sense, at times."Hayate simply chuckles.Ruthless stomps towards the center of the gym, evidently more interested in just getting her backpack. No sooner than she'd reached the center of the basketball court, however, there is a sudden echoed, grunting sound, followed by the deafening crack of splitting stone. Before anyone has time to react, the floor seems to glow with a blinding light and the gymnasium's doors slam shut. There is a falling sensation, and then each student loses consciousness.And that was the end of Scene 1, and when the GM finally name-dropped the title of the 'anime': Chosen Classroom. He even picked out an opening theme song and everything: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUcW476AvqcWe have been informed to ignore the video itself and just listen to the music.
>>57170773This isn't the end of the episode, mind you, only the end of the first scene. But it still might be a good time to take a break from the storytime for now, since sleep sounds nice. Care to keep the thread alive until I can continue?
>>57161080Yeah. For 2018 year I'm hoping I remember to recruit people like me who have nothing to do during the holiday season a month or 2 early so that I can run or play something that time of year.
>>57163693>>57164572What is Meijin?And why are you numbing yourselves? Are you some kind of noble family of spiders who took the surname Threadmaker to be more understand able to the human families that are now your peers?
>>57168350I am excited.
>all of this storytime only covers two posts of the isekai GM's version>not even halfway through episode 1I feel retroactively robbed. I mean I can't complain, the original storytime was great and this is great too, but god damn it's nice to read up on the character interaction.
>>57171143Ash sounds a bit "shaaa"
>>57159049>>57168422Only 2 posts in and I already have a mental voice for one of the characters in this storytime.I don't really know what I expected Su to sound like, but there you go.
>>57171161Thanks for pointing out how autocorrect messed up my post so I could fix it.
>>57168577>vice principal is in a very bad mood today seeing as how she woke up alive this morning.>try to drink yourself to death>wake up with a hangover.
>>57170773>GM picks out anime opening for your campaign>it's from an ero visual novel
>>57170876Meijin is a reference to Gundam Build Fighters, where the best model kit builders are given the title "Meijin Kawaguchi". The protagonist's rival is the third in the line, and boy, is he a Meijin. (This wordplay is repeatedly used in the show, mind you.)
>>57171387So how do you explain recognizing it?
>>57170801Chu got it.Also, holy crap did isekai anon leave out a shitload of details.
>>57170876For >>57164572 i was just following suit for the sake of a joke.
>>57161446>Tfw no one cares about your story
>>57161446>>57173324Well, plans for a campaign that you're going to run is good news, but it's not really storytime in and of itself. Good luck with it though
I trust you all had a good Kurisumasu and had lots of cake to go with it. Mine went pretty great but i've been up to my ears in work. Incidently there was a sort of "Christmas" themed episode of MiO, christmas being in quotations because it was more winter themed. Enough about that though, time to get back on track.Fujiwara Ren is currently in his cell, no longer petrified and is conversing with the only friendly people he has encountered all day. The problem currently would be getting him out of his cell. Clearly the correct course of action is to use Medusaina's keys to unlock the cell. Ito backs up for a running start and rider kicks the door at full force so hard that it comes off it's hinges and slams into the wall behind it, narrowly missing Ren. The Sprit Dectective hacks up some dust and makes his way out to see his would be saviors and a familiar looking snake. He looks at her and with a very angry expression calls her and I quote "You scaly fucking milkcow!". Shizune grabs the bridge of her nose with her fingers, another one.
>>57173448Nanatsume says that Medusaina can't be a cow because she is a snake, completely missing the insult here. Ren explains why he was trapped in such a cell. It was simply an spiritual investigation gone wrong, the spirit he was hunting was in Osaka Castle and it just so happened that Ciero and his gang set up their domain JUST as he was in the process of capturing/dispelling said spirit. Just his luck. The idea of a spiritual detective intruiges Nanatsume and she asks if they are like the ones on TV that go into haunted houses and everything is green for some reason, Shizune calls those shows fake and Nana gets sad.Meanwhile...On another level of the castle, three monsterous beings are conversing. These are the captains of the upper floors of the domain. Gurei, a wolfish looking boy clad in chains. Freki, a large and crass hellhound. Sabbath, the head honcho of the tower with the appearance and gait of a powerful looking demon. Sabbath comments that the tower has intruders and he trusts his subbordinates to get rid of these interlopers. He has already learnt that Medusaina has turned traitor as her mark is no longer active. He asks that his captains show no quarter. Gurei says he'll serve lord Ciero and Freki doesn't give a damn as long as she gets something to eat.The crew makes their way up the tower, the aesthetic of a japanese castle shifting into something more Nordic in origin
>>57173448Kansainon-samaaaaa, aishiteru! Aishiteru!
>>57173324That's not a storytime though. It is a description of how a game is being set up that hasn't happened yet.I was lead to believe one thing, and got another. So instead of responding after reading I just scrolled on.
>>57173485Sabbath finished his instructional talk and disspeared into a shadowy vortex, leaving his two subbordinates to challenge the oncoming foes, foes that had found their way closer and closer into the main chambers. They arrive to see a wolf and a hound conversing amongst themselves. Arriving at the scene, Akira looked at the two guardians and scratched his head, sword still in his hand. "Who are you guys? We're not interrupting something or anything, are we?" Freki responds to the boy "Well if you must know I was just thinking about how fun it's going to be to grind you into the dirt, Haha!" Shizune responds with a succint "Poor choice of words." Everyone is getting in their lines "Poor thing. You're in for quite the dissapointment!" Jagasaki declares stepping forward. "Well it sucks to be you becasue fun's not on your menu" Ito proclaims. Akira ponders a question, he confuses Freki for a cat and finds it confusing, because cats and dogs shouldn't get along.Shizune looks at the two, wondering and asking what even ARE these guys. "A hellhound and some kind of.. catgirl?"
>>57173485>Sabbath, the head honcho of the tower with the appearance and gait of a powerful looking demon.Be a demon.Mom names you "Sunday".
>>57173485Wolf boy has a nice ass.
>>57173626Those aren't pasties. They are some king of decorative metal claws for your tits. Titty claws > nipple clamps?
>>57173626Dogs and cats smell nothing alike!Then again if both of them bathe regularly with soaps and/or shampoo it may be impossible to tell what Freki is by smell.
>>57170773>>57170801>>57173626Yay! More storytime!
>>57173626Its time for our reguarly scheduled Ito points game! Where the rules are made up on the spot and the points don't matter (except they totally do though) Ito decalares 100 points for the cat girl and 150 for the dog. Akira points out that Freki is boy (it's something he immediately recognises). Ito is confused because he thinks he sees's tits to which Akira points out that they haven't met a single enemy without tits so far, which is poingniently accurate. Gurei says that perhaps he'll have to show them what a man looks like when he's finished here and Freki gets fired up, literally, like she is coated in flame. COMBAT STARTThe battle begins and everyone is putting out the stops, all of the stops. Our resident melee damage dealers pile onto Freki and Akira lands a combination blow. But he is caught off guard, as the physical attacks connect he finds his attacks reflected back with flame as he beats down on Freki. Akira is burnt but comments that the training dummy is broken, stuffing is coming out, "do they pad its boobs out with this crap?". Ren charges in with his spear (his art shows him using a sword but his character uses a spear, who'd thunk it) he also lands a combination with fire traveling up his arm.Shizune takes an alternate approach, she creates a ball of intense magical energy [BESTOW TOXIC] which is separated into two and with a sweep of her arm she throws one at Freki and one at Gurei [GRAND SPELL INVOCATION]. Both blows land with massive power. Gurei takes it well but Freki is yelling out in pain, the attacks Akira and Ren did were clearly damaging her but her flames we reflecting them back.
>>57174856This might be the only/best time to mention this. Shizune naturally doesn't have the ability to bestow Toxic on her attacks, so how could she do this? Perhaps with a material fused with her weapon of choice, yeah that would work but that's not it. From this point onwards I have given my players something called the Reverse Arms System, they can now equip any one Aramitama assist to grant them powers, Shizune with the power of Medusaina gets the ability to poison it up, which is always good.Ito comes in swinging his blade at Freki because he realises his target might go down before he actually might be able to do anything. He makes three swings and connects with two, the blades energy cutting at the hellhoud as her fire licks back at him. "Damn it! Just fall down for me!" he shouts to which she replies "I'm sorry, I don't do tricks" as she laughs and spits blood. If she is going down, she's going down on her terms. Her body is engulfed by flames as she stands up. "Hestia!" She shouts as a flaming vortex covers and lashes out everywhere. Thankfully most manage to avoid the deadly flame by nicely timed rolls. That was the last of her power and she is down on the ground with not much fight left in her. Shizune tells her servant Jagasaki not to bother with a limping enemy. Twisting roots erupt from Jagasaki's hands, snaking their way over to Freki and binding them in place. Those same roots reach out for Gurei, their pitch-black tendrils hungry for the blood of demons. Freki is dealt a heavy blow and collapses, her hellfire petering out into smog and smoke while Gurei takes the blow with more nuance and grace, definitely hurt him though."150 points to Jagasaki-san" Ito bemoans. "...Or you could do that, yeah." Shizune comments.
>>57174856>all that wood.>all that fire.The castle is gonna start Bruning isn't it?
>>57175786>"150 points to Jagasaki-san" Ito bemoans.
>>57175786>This might be the only/best time to mention this. Shizune naturally doesn't have the ability to bestow Toxic on her attacks, so how could she do this?

I may want to apply them or have them on hand for future games where Aramitama aren't exactly like they are in the core book.If you do this then take your time. Smooth, understandable rules text is better than something quick and hard to understand. I won't be in a session for a week at least and likely won't have IMMEDIATE use for it so you've got time.
What's so great about taking something like Contractor A over Arc Slayer?
>>57177230It fits your character better?
>>57177230Action economy fuckery as well as movement + magic of ranged attack fuckery are relallg powerful things contractor offers that arc slayer can't do.
>>57177352>magic of ranged attackIs supposed to beMagic OR ranged attack
>>57168754Did Japan win WWII or at least take and retain part of California and the sue for peace in this timeline? Cause the city name and school history seem a bit strange.
>>57175786With Freki defeated her fire is out. The room grows deathly cold. The hellfire was keeping Gurei's ice in check and everyone can feel the cold nipping at them. A wind surrounds Gurei and he finally casts his attack."I wield the chains that bind you. FENRIR"Chains shoot out from the ground and those chains are ice cold and dangerous, Akira and Jagasaki are hit hard by this as is Shizune but she manages to deflect the brunt of the damage with a magical barier and her defensive martial traits taking no damage as she slaps the chains out of existance as they reach her. Shizune see's her partner is hit by this attack and freaks as the chain embeds itself in his wrist, the limb freezes over, and without saying much he quickly severs the limb with a swift chop from his free hand.Shizune freaks out at this but Jagasaki assures her that she is fine, casting aside the limb that rapidly withers away. Seconds later a new limb grows but it shares a closer resemblance to fossilized wood than flesh and blood. "Let's just makes sure they can't do that again". Ito calls Jagasaki one crazy dude as Shizune nods nervously.
>>57177769Akira was unable to dodge the chains, and the ice tore into him. "Son of a bitch..." he muttered, as he tried to move. "It's payback time". Payback time indeed as he rushes in with his combination attack for critical damage. Gurei is bleeding head to toe but his demeanor doesn't change. He knows his defeat is up soon but he still stands firm, regardless of the coming result.Ren see's the assault "He's either holding steady for something or just a stubborn mutt", as he goes in for an attack of his own. Gurei is still drawing breath, he's just taking these attacks. If he were not under the influence of Ciero he probably would have surrendered long ago. It's time for the final blow.Shizune raises her arm. "It's over. MIND CRUSH!" Gurei is hit by a barrage of immense phatom damage which pushes him over the edge as he doubles over in pain and falls to his knees, defeated. Freki and Gurei can no longer continue to fight[RETIRE]
>>57173366>>57173584I meant i was more expecting questions, but yeah. My bad.
>>57176146It's pretty much how Kansainon described, but I'll give you his exact rules:>Each player will be given the choice to equip an Aramitama and by spending 1x attack timing you can activate their abilities. You can also spend a timing Prep to cycle through any unused Aramitama, however you can not do this while engaged.And some abilities so far:>Medusaina [3, 3] Inflict Shift: Paralysis on Target 1#, range 7>Freki  Increase Barrier and Armor by 5 until the end of the round, any damage taken will be reflected back /2>Gurei [Doubles] Inflict 4d6+12 Cold damage ignoring EvasionKansainon is mildly confused though, Shizune does have a bestow toxic material synthesized to one of her weapons.>>57175925Oh this reminds me I've been forgetting to do that lately. I'll have to fix that
>>57180221So its like a 1/Combat pseudo talent, devil may cry style?
>>57180319More or less, though they don't get used that much since everyone's usually saving/fixing their dice for our respective wombo combos
>>57180221>equip an AramitamaWhat does this do in-universe? FF-style summon attack/effect where they appear, do the thing, then disappear?Is Nanatsume unable to be equipped due to her circumstances?
>>57170801Have you ever GMed before, or are you just a player?
>>57180776To my knowledge, none of the isekai anon players have GM'ed a game themselves as of yet. To be fair though, isekai anons game is one of the first ones that was told of in thread, and is still ongoing, so its not like anyone else has needed too.I could be very wrong about that though.
>>57180585At first they were just sorta there-but-offscreen, but that very quickly became cumbersome because we started collecting them like pokemon so they now have a kind of hibernation crystal/pokeball form we can use to summon them when neededNana can be equipped I just didn't include the whole list of support abilities for brevity/spoilers
>>57180776I've GMed in the past, but nothing kamigakari related. Pretty gunshy to do it after many failed attempts.
>>57181060>many failed attemptsWhat?
>>57170773Picking up where we left off, the five highschoolers slowly regain consciousness, though not where they remember losing it. There's pained groans as people pick themselves off of the stone floor, too groggy to freak out just yet. When eyes finally adjust, it becomes clear that not only do they have no clue where they are or how much time has passed, but the surroundings seem to be nothing but stone-brick prison cells that separate everyone. Most confusing of all, the highschoolers that woke up don't seem to be the same ones who lost consciousness-- they hardly recognize their own bodies anymore, let alone each other. Well, mostly, anyway.Everyone panics in unison."Pissnelke!" Su shouts first, putting her hands on her face in disbelief, "...Wha...?"She appears to have gained a few feet of height, now thin and pale and dressed in priestly robes."Skit!" Ryuko's eyes blink open with her own foreign curse word, "Ah! What? Watch out!"Though largely similar appearance-wise, Ryuko's sprouted a pair of fox-like ears and a tail to boot, her outfit now accentuated with ribbons and frills. They both calm down slightly just in time for Rei to realize his predicament, who has largely remained the same save for an oddly-designed green jumpsuit and metal cowl."What the heck happened? Where am I? Are you guys still there?"There's a groan from Hayate as he regains consciousness, who checks his sunglasses and mumbles that his head hurts. Out of everyone he appears the least affected, even wearing the same school uniform as before.It takes a few minutes for Su to even recognize Ruth, having changed into something clearly inhuman, rather something more akin to a monstrous lizard."...Ruthless?" she asks, the girl in question now grabbing the bars of her cell and grimacing at everyone else."Why am in a prison?! What's going on? Who are you? Is that a pokemon?!" Rei continues his panicked state, making the rest seem relatively calm in comparison.
>>57181095My first few attempts to GM ended up crashing and burning after a few sessions, so I've been pretty hesitant to try again. Nothing kamigakari-related, just miscellaneous other systems. I think I did my best with the last one, a pokemon campaign, but I don't think it's worth storytiming, especially not in a kamigakari thread.
>>57181545Ah, thats fair then. Shit happens man. If you feel like starting up a game with this system, feel free to ask for help.
>>57181504"Who am I? I knew I'd...seen..." Ryuko looks down at herself, "Ah! What's this?" Her ears wiggle in curiosity. "I'm...Ryuko.""You don't..." Hayate begins to comment, "Well you kind of do look like Ryuko I guess.""Okay, I think names are in order here before we get confused," Chen Su does her best to take charge in the chaos, "Hayate, Ruth, Rey, Ryuko, and Su are all here, yes?"A round of different answers from the various teenagers nonetheless point to the same affirmative. Su does a pretty good job of getting everyone to calm down despite the dire situation, even Rei manages to stop shouting. Just as everyone starts to discuss what to do, a voice echoes through each of their heads, causing the lot of them to flinch back into confusion:'Inari-san is cute with those ears...'There's audible confusion, particularly from Ryuko Inari, but another spoken voice interrupts the new topic."Oh, please don't start without me!""Who else is there?!" Ryuko shouts back with venom in her voice.In answer to her question, an exceptionally tall man steps around the corner, with bronzed skin and a height of at least 7 feet. He carries with him what appear to be a clipboard and a quill pen."Ah so sorry. Good to see all of you awake," he taps on the clipboard with a quill, "Now if I could just get your names one more time...?""Geez you're tall..." Su comments."What's yours?" Ryuko asks back."Oh yes. So sorry," he answers.
>>57181504Cussing in German
>>57182231"Annalas Res," the giant of a man answers with a polite nod, "Now I'll need names, so let's start with you, the Hanyou."The mental voice pipes up again: 'That name sounds foreign...where are we?'"What did you call her?" Hayate speaks up."Hanyou...what?" says Su."N-no. I'm Ryuko," the girl in question answers, "Where's the school?"Annalas scribbles onto his clipboard, mumbling to himself."Ryuko...Hanyou, fox variety. Polite."While Ryuko is left in silent confusion, he turns to Rei and Hayate, jokingly stating that they're the shortest Scions he's ever met. Annalas is barraged by questions from all sides, everyone wanting to know who he is, where they are, why they're here, the expected stuff, while the voice in everyone's head parrots similar questions."Just basic processing is all that's happening," he tries to explain, attempting to calm everyone down again. Unsurprisingly this only raises further questions. "Processing??? Of what?" Rei stutters."Of us? Like...like moving to another country?" asks Ryuko.Su speaks up again, trying to get a handle on the scene once more. She explains their situation, having only moments ago been in their school, and the next moment waking up in a prison cell. She tries to convince him that this whole situation would be a lot less chaotic if he would answer a few of their questions, to help them wrap their head around whatever's going on here."...and please stop speaking in our heads," she adds, "It's rude.""...is that so?" Annalas answers after the whole explanation, "Well, if I'm to be of assistance I'll need to know who you are. Believe me, I'd love nothing more that to get this settled. And I'm sorry; telepathy is a bit beyond my grasp.""...wha?" Su squints, "Oh. Oh wait. That means...hm.""Then who's talking in my head?" Rei asks."Well why don'y you ask it its name?" Annalas answers with a shrug, "And while you're at it, tell me yours. Because I do need those."
>>57181545Well, I for one would like to read about it. I bet it's not as bad as you think, and even if it is I think /tg/ could give you good pointers on what to do better next time. It's a tragic thing to see a GM with good potential shy away just because their first few attempts didn't go so well.That is, if you want to storytime it in the first place.Also, this is ruth anon, right?
>>57181545What kind of Pokémon game was it?Were the Players Pokémon who were part of a trainer's team?Or were you a group of trainers who were hired to protect a nature preserve?Were you police officers like the Jenny family?Members of Team rocket/aqua/magma/snaggem?Kids going to a "Pokémon school/university"?Or something like this? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kKZcWZM-EXw
>>57182427"Kastsuo," Hayate grunts, crossing his arms."Name: Kastsuo. Scion...question mark...?" Annalas narrates his note-taking. Hayate doesn't answer.Annalas walks over to Ruth next and eyes her. "Name, and," he pauses and seems to smile, "...which one is your owner?""McKillen. Ruthless McKillen," Ruth answers with a glare.The telepathic voice pipes up again: '...owner? I don't like the look of this guy.'"Owner? You're a prick," Hayate spits."Please sir," Su keeps calm, "The jokes are not appreciated right now. I'm Chen Su, prefer to go by Su.""Su. Divine Soul," Annalas quickly scribbles onto his notebook, looking back towards Ruth, "So...McKillen. Ruthless McKillen. Darkstalker. Unknown variety. Seems a bit redundant for a name, but alright..."Ruthless simply glares at the man, but the mental voice speaks up again: 'I-it's not like I picked it...'"And lastly," Annalas finally points to Rei's cage, "You are a...dwarf?""N...no?""I'm sorry, I really can't tell. You do look too tall for that.""I... I'm a human. I think? What is this place, seriously?""A-human? Is that your name?""W-what? No, my name is Rei.""...Rei, and I'll just put 'race unknown' for right now..."Su blinks in epiphany, and looks towards Ruth's cell. "Ruth...is that you in our heads?""...what?" Ruth hisses back, turning her glare towards Su."...just...processing," Su explains, rubbing her temples, "All of us are in bodies not our own. Oh dear. We...we died, didn't we. We died, and this is the Divine Realms.""Died?!" Ryuko's voice is panicked, "No way. We...were in the gym! And then I think...there was that spear, right?"Before the group can devolve back into full-on panic attacks, a new feminine voice erupts from somewhere else within the prison:"Annalas! ANNALAS RES I KNOW YOU'RE DOWN THERE!"
>>571800392who lore vast and rather batshit insane from what what little I've learned of it on /w/ and /tg/.So I can see how it would be good for drawing elements from to flesh out a high fantasy world of past or modern bent.What kind of story are you and your players looking to tell though in terms of tone and focus?
>>57182884>"All of us are in bodies not our own. Oh dear. We...we died, didn't we. We died, and this is the Divine Realms."Oh shit!
>>57182892I'm just going with a basic touhou incident where someones actions inadvertently fuck with most of gensokyo and someone has to fix it, Wandering around beating up whatever is in their path till they beat up the right thing.I'd go into more detail on the story, but i dunno if any of them lurk these threads. I'll give a small rundown on the PC's as they are currently in a minute here
>>57182884Wait I thought Ruthless was a nickname?Or has she just adopted it as though it were her real name like what happened with Osaka?
>>57182972Full name of Ruthless Mckillen, Nicknamed ruth.You had it backwards
>>57182979I'm suddenly curious what her parents are named.I wonder if Mujihina is a grammatically correct woman's name in Japanese?
>>57182884Hayate: man of mystery
>>57182679Yep, still the same anon, just taking off the nametag if I'm not doing a storytime post since that's usually in poor taste. I'll always appreciate feedback on my GMing style, and even if only one person enjoys it I suppose it can't hurt to storytime it? I'm frankly flabbergasted (and flattered) that anybody is interested in this stuff, since rambling on about old campaign stories was always frowned upon in my other groups. Would you really want to read through all that, even if it's not kamigakari stuff?>>57182727It was a very small party, just two sisters living with their parents (a pokemon professor and pokemon breeder) and conspiring to run away from home in order to travel the world. One sister wanted to raise the world's strongest pokemon team, while the other just wanted to be by her sister's side and meet lots of bug-type pokemon friends. Because they were geared towards wilderness survival, I made a new region and filled it with places to explore in hopes that it would be fun to travel. Sadly the campaign spontaneously died, but I've still got all of my notes and records of the campaign at least.
>>57182884"There you are!" an elven-looking woman rounds the corner, her call followed by a crashing sound somewhere outside."Is that an elf???" Rei ponders aloud."I think you're right," Ryuko mutters."Ah, hello Mere," Annalas gives the furious-looking elf a polite nod."Don't give me that right now, mister. I can't believe you came down here when you knew this was going to happen," Mere answers in the vaguest possible way.There's another crash from outside, evidently some sort of violence is going down."Sounds like it's getting bad out there," he comments in an equally vague fashion."We're dead," Chen Su mumbles to herself, having a hard time staving off an existential panic attack, "We're dead, and I'm going to be reborn as a Preta...mom always tried to warn me off the sweets...""They've evacuated everything south of the main square," Mere continues, "We may need Lord Sarrum himself for this if it keeps up.""Well, I believe I have everything I need from this place.""I don't care what you have and have not I am dragging you out of here by the ear if necessary!""Why are we here?" Hayate speaks up, hoping for an answer before they leave, "Who are you people!? Let! Us! Out!""Oh, I'm sorry," Annalas answers, already being pushed towards the exit by Mere, "I got a little lost there. Don't worry, you'll be taken care of soon.""Wait!" Ryuko shouts, "Taken care of how? Can't you put us back? Where are we?!""Are they seriously going to just leave us here?" Rei asks the air.The mental voice says 'They're not even paying attention to us...'"...Right. Right. Okay," Chen Su calms herself again, "Jumping to conclusions. Can't do that even if we're...GET BACK HERE AND LET US OUT YOU SCHWEINHEUNDE!""If anything happens I'm sure you'll do what comes natural!" Annalas calls back, now pushed out of view by the elf several feet shorter than him and leaving everyone else with no answers.
>>57182964and by a minute, i mean after i wake up, because i need to pass out.
>>57183036That sounds cute, I'd absolutely want to read it! Assuming you have the time to tell it and all, I know you're kinda in the middle of a different storytime right now. I don't know how easy it'll be to tell in comparison to this isekai campaign, seeing as how you're the GM in the pokemon one. In any case you'd definitely want to make a different thread for the storytime itself if you decide to tell it. Who knows? Maybe some other anons will like it and give some feedback that we wouldn't.
>>57183380Righto, it can't hurt to give it a shot. I'll definitely want to finish up this episode first, but some time afterwards I can give the pokemon campaign the old college try. Since it was a mythweavers game I could probably just take screenshots to let you read the story exactly as it happened, would you prefer that?
>>57183478Whatever makes the story easier to tell, or that you think would make it better to read. Screenshot format would also make it easier to save, though, if you care about stuff like that.
early morning bump
>>57170254How did the different characters react to realizing, or being made aware, that their school supplies had been stolen?
Going to continue storytime in a bit, in the mean time i'm going to share something one of the players in a Kamigakari game i'm playing compiled a list of all the common racial talents into a google document. It's pretty useful as there is a lot of stuff in there people might pass by. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Yc84pEmQ0nJUXJbphD5Mr-XMZId1AhqfdS-2iddOArw/editAlso the game i'm playing in is pretty fun and i'd like to storytime it but i'm also storytiming Misfits in Osaka. I could storytime both if people wanted.
>>57189098Actually about that, the common talents from core, 1, and 3 are common STYLE talents. The only common racial talents per se are in book 2. It took me a hot minute to realize that.
>>57189098Stick to one thing at a time, i would say. Its not like the story will cease to exist if it needs to wait to be told, after all.
>>57189098how did she manage to bleach that one area so she could dye it pink? That seems like it would be difficult to prevent from running and could get very uncomfortable on the skin.
>>57183249Okay, i'm back. And after needling one person about their characters downtime, i've got a good view of what the characters are like.The first character doesn't have a name yet, But they are an Oni (Refluffed scion), God hand A/Divine Talker A. In true oni fashion she is either drunk, hitting things, or both. Her style is to rip things outta the ground and use it on people as a weapon. The idea was thrown around of using generic fairies that got knocked out as weapons, but that would be cruel and unusual so i vetoed it.
>>57189762The second character is Mano mayoko, a Magician (Refluffed magus) Elder mage A/Time wizard B. They are writing a thesis on their time magic, and solve incidents to practice it. They use it to slow down the field, then attack by either nuking or targeted small attacks. In their off-time, they write action/comedy books, though its unclear if anyone knows that yet.
>>57189773The last character is Denjishaku, A fairy (Refluffed divine soul) Elemental Adept A/B. Denji is a fairy embodying electricity and magnetism, and uses this in her attacks, along with a ring that lets her control wind as well. Comparative to other fairies, she's an upstanding member of society working at the candy store of an old lady, and helping her out. That said, she's equally as dumb as the average fairy, so how much she helps is a matter of debate.
Happy New Year('s Eve)!
>>57189617Could be a sticker
>>57163693Speaking about this thing, I might-a-well talk about what my campaign's got! In the city of Danichi, there's a guy called Keiichi, He's a Demon-Eyed, but he ain't shy,To take on a new mission for the SpecProv guys,So in the Occult Club, with Makoto and Ai,There's missing bodies around, who knows why.Better check the network, look into the fuzz, Gotta see what's all the buzz.Adopted kid here, his name is Sieg.Totally (not) human, okay, maybe a lil' machine,Got the BEG after his mecha soul,He just wants a normal life, that's what they got told.
>>57189762>>57189773>>57189782Y'know, i'm statting out my mononoke and bosses, and i'm honestly not sure how mean i'm going to be with what i've got. Especially my third boss. That one might get particularly mean.For those of you that have played, whats your average damage at around level 4? Per hit, preferably. I haven't had the time to playtest any of these mononoke and i'm actually not sure what the average is around that level.
>>57168885>romantic subplot between Rei and Ryuko never mentioned in the original storytimeSee, this is what we came here for.
>>57194447>best girl with worst boy
>>57194587>Best girlI thought we'd already established that was ruth.
You think if some retard tries to do an official english release of this shit, they'll try to translate the replays? This thread seems to like storytimes enough
>>57195671Perhaps, but i don't see them as being nearly as popular as the player made settings and stories.
>>57195671>if some retard tries to do an official english release of this shitHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAnever happen. Only a total retard would even try, this won't make money. We're the only english fans and we'd all pirate it.
>>57195775Well, except for me who bought the books so we can do a translation at some point.
>>57195775>Only a total retard would even tryhe did say, if a retard tries to do itI think I'd read one or two replays if only to see how the japs play compared to us
>>57195808You seem cool, can we be friends?
>>57195884I'm a friend to anyone who likes kamigakari.Except for that one guy. Fuck that guy.
>>57195926Or they could easily beLegion/Contractor
>>57195910Hooray!Is it going to be weird if I ask how I can contact you?
>>57195926>>57195936Contractor is probably more accurate. Dragon carrier is for if he personally transforms somehow, which isn't terribly apparent in that pic. That said, you can get new styles at levels 5, 10, and 15 so its not all that hard to just pick it up later.
>>57195808>>57195884>>57195910>>57195957DON'T DO IT ANON! IT'S A TRAP!
>>57195957>>57195978I mean, i'm almost always lurking thread, so its not like i'm hard to get a hold of.
>>57195987What's your current plan on taking photos/scans of the contents? Probably be easier to entice a translator if we can just point them at an existing book scan. Plus I want to look at the art.
>>57183211I'm not sure if you were done yet, but i screencapped what you did so far. Here it is, and i also put it on the screencapanon Imgur Herehttps://screencapanon.imgur.com/
>>57196025Frankly speaking, i don't have any plans as of yet. I've never scanned anything before, nor do i have any of the equipment that goes with that. One person did say that /t/s Library threads might have good advice though. I'm sure as fuck not heating the glue and ripping the books apart though, this shit cost me 200 bucks.
>>57196104Yeah last time I went to /t/ looking for indie on how to digitize books without harming them they linked me to a site that was about how to build your own book scanner and also had a gallery of ones people had built.I'd post it here by I'm restricted to phoneposting and won't have access to notes on my computer till I eventually get home after the holidays.They may have some other useful info for you too on there.
>>57196178In the worst case scenario, i could just use the tablet i have to take pictures of it for us to translate, since it'll all end up in a PDF anyways.
>>57196198Here This might help you.https://diybookscanner.org/en/designs.html
>>57196198Man, i can barely even tell which book is which. I can figure out which one is the core book, which one is machine god, and which one is the cthulhu book but from there i can't tell.>>57196278>>57196288Same person, or incredible timing? who's to say.
>>57196288Fucking hell, half of these look like torture devices.
>>57196291Same Anon. I realized the first link was less direct then it could have been so I redid the post.
>>57196303They are designed to cradle the book, light source and camera in a way that takes good pictures for digitizing the books while leaving said books to rest as at a comfortable, nondamaging angle of open-ness.Consequently they look like they would be a torture device if you shoved a human into it.
>>57196311Yeah, i noticed that after i used the first one, and then refreshed 4chan when i noticed the two links were essentially the same. Still, at a minimum i'll need to find a cardboard box and an average camera, that i can hook up to a computer.
>>57196335I'm gonna level with ya, i'm probably gonna go with the cardboard box and a fairly good camera. We don't need pretty scans, nor will we be using these by themselves once we translate it. Its a means to an end, and i'm not gonna spend too much cash on an in-between step.So long as its readable, thats the important thing.
>>57196367Righto. If you run into problems with your cardboard rig you now have the other sections of the site, including the forum, to turn to for advice.Good luck.
>>57196464Luckily i work at a domino's, so cardboard boxes are easy to come by. All i really need is a good adjustable lamp and a moderately good camera that can hook up to a computer.
>>57196291>i can barely even tell which book is which.Here's the Moon.Kamigakari (武装伝奇RPG 神我狩/Legendary Arms RPG Kamigakari)Requiem of the Godsoul (神魂のレクイエム/Requiem of the Divine Spirit)Machine-God of Damocles (ダモクレスの機神)True Regalia of Chronos (クロノスの原初神器/Primordial Sacred Treasures of Chronos)Embers That Burn for the Girl (少女を焦がす熾火)Four Guardian Gods (四神ガーディアンズ)Contact with Chaotic Myth (混沌神話との接触)Space-Time Alternate (時空のオルタード)

>>57159049Anybody got Police, detective, and S.W.A.T. stuff? 1960's and 70's and 80's looking stuff is most appreciated but I'll take older stuff as well as modern and future/magic stuff too.Gonna be playing a game where god hunters are police and detectives so inspiration art would be most appreciated. It doesn't have to be anime style but anime style is appreciated.Thank you.>>57196511Check the goodwill stores. Sometimes they get decent to superior digital cameras in. It's where I got mine.
>>57196565>Check the goodwill stores. Sometimes they get decent to superior digital cameras in. It's where I got mine.Noted. While i'm on the topic, don't expect this to go fast. What i'm thinking is scanning a page or two at a time from a book, we translate that, then continue on with that book until we have a completed expansion. Without someone that can read japanese at a nearly native level, thats probably the fastest we'd be able to do it anyways.
>>57196565I don't think I have anything in your date range.Some other anons might though.
>>57196565I'll look, but i doubt i have anything in that time range.
>>57196586Wouldn't you want to scan a whole book so that translators can compare One menation of a specific term to another mention of a specific term so they can use context clues to work out what the original author meant?Context clues, or rather lack thereof are one of the big reasons machine translations suck.
>>57196586I'm the weirdo that tried to get your contact info earlier.I think I can help you with this, kind of. I'm positive I sound like a creep, but that's what being anonymous is good for. If there's a way I can talk to you that isn't on a Laotian yak-milking forum that would be good.
>>57196607>>57196614While this is true, taking the time to scan an entire book is fairly taxing, and my work schedule is awkward at best. While i agree with what you are saying, we'll inevitably need to do a double take on it anyways, so i'd rather we have something going while i'm indisposed.We just need to make sure people understand that what we're translating is by no means the final product until we shit out a PDF that actually says "Final version" on it.
>>57196622I'll see about setting up a throwaway e-mail and link it here. Might be a bit though, since i'm likely to pass out soon.
>>57196622Do you know people who are fluent in Moon Runes and Murricanese and who are interested in doing translations fellow anonymous user of this Albanian jet-pack polishing image board?
>>57196654Nope. I just jack off to all the anime girls in these threads, then go into VR chat to get headpats.Why do you ask?
>>57196660Well, thats just strange. There's better places for that then here. Still, i needed a throwaway method of communicating anyways. I'm the only one with the books, and people will inevitably want something slightly more solid than thread.>>57196626Still lookin for military girls in my folder
>>57196685Anyways, i need to pass out. I'll see about getting the email set up tommorow or the next day, whichever i have time for. If thread ain't up, i'll post it in the next one that goes up.
>>57183211What happened next?
>>57177905Did Shizune really say "MIND CRUSH"?
>>57196900Probably in her broken English.
i've been binge watching the old English dubs of Japanese IRON CHEF.Damn that was good stuff when I was a kid.
>>57196900That she did, and now I feel like I missed an opportunity for now commenting on it at the time
What happens if players in Kamigakari go off the episode script? It sounds really tight plot wise.
>>57198900Literally what you would do with any other system. Don't enforce pacing rules/guidelines if they don't work for you.
>>57199084It sounds like they are baked into the system from the read-through I did. Does it work like that? IIRC Double Cross didn't.
>>57197228Makes me think of the episode of King of the Hill where The horribleness of Peggy Hill's Spanish, which she is super in denial about, ends up saving her from being found guilty of a serious crime in court.
>>57198900Only as tight as you make it, really
>>57199116Its all just a matter of how well you as a DM can improvise, just like anything else. While the Guide wants you to enforce scripts, thats due to japanese schedules being garbage and very limited, so you need to keep a tight rein on the pacing so as to keep things moving. Since we don't have that issue nearly as badly, you can pretty safely loosen up a bit with no actual impact on the game mechanically.
>>57196877Okay, i'm back and i have a throwaway email set up for if people need me when a thread isn't up or something.Address is the name
>>57197560Ah, good ol referential humor. It almost never fails.
>>57202120Yeah the book has a whole thing about episode handouts and goals and the two-three games I know about don't use them because it's not necessary to keep the game going
Would people be interested in a google doc listing all the common talents/racial talents across all the splats? At least the ones from the main book to splat 5.
>>57207810argh, he beat me to posting it. I was the player who compiled it, didn't think anyone had brought it to the kami thread yet.
>>57207773That'd be pretty nice! If you're gonna go about doing something like that, I reckon I might even get all the weapons together. Wouldn't that be fun?
>>57207844It's handy to have anyway so thanks>>57207849This would be pretty good too
>>57207849Whatever makes it easier to parse Kamigakari, imo. I love the system to death, but digging through all the splats on the pastebin for this sort of thing is a real pain - getting it all together is a good idea.
>>57207884>>57207849>>57207773Someone in Japan has a spreadsheet of all the player options (talents, items, accessories) here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/83l3m0afie936yv/%E7%A5%9E%E6%88%91%E7%8B%A9%E3%83%87%E3%83%BC%E3%82%BF%E9%9B%86+20171021.zipUnfortunately, it's all in Japanese. It IS organized like the PDF/Pastebins, so it's not impossible to cross-reference between them. Except for the untranslated stuff. Then you need Google Translate.If I threw it into a Google Sheet, would anybody be willing to help translate it?(Apologies to bookanon for being a sperg the last time this came up)
>>57208755Is it only the player stuff? because if i'm being honest, we are missing more of the GM stuff than anything.
>>57209733We can't really do anything for GM stuff if we don't have it
>>57209775which is why i was asking. If said PDF had any of the GM stuff.
Some kind of Elder Mage/Contractor?
>>57183211All is silent save for the occasional violent crash somewhere outside, causing the prison to shake every time. Rei keeps trying to shoulder-bash his cell's bars open, while the rest discuss their situation. Oddly enough, the party seems to vaguely recognize each other despite their new forms-- the mental voice notes that it remembers Su and Rei from a dream, harkening back to Session Zero of the campaign itself wherein the players were still running their characters through mock-combats to get a grip on the system. Evidently those were somewhat canon as a dream, and it dawns on the party that they have already some grasp of what they're capable of.Ruth takes to the prospect of calling her weapon easiest, summoning a large chain wrapped around her arm. After some confusion, it becomes more obvious that she's also the source of the voice that's been echoing through everyone's heads, though Ruth doesn't seem aware that anyone can hear her. Rei is still unconvinced that Ruth isn't a pokemon of some sort, and her reaction to that comment over the mental link cements the theory. Upon informing Ruth of this they're met with blood-curdling death glares, though the mental link is filled with loud, flustered stuttering that betrays any attempt to seem threatening.Su makes an effort to calm the group down, with some success, and she asks if Ruth can break down her cell wall as escaping seems to be the best idea. With some goading she agrees, but before she can put a hand on the bars there is a resounding 'click' throughout the prison, and each cell door swings open. With a confused look towards each other, the group collectively decides not to look a gift horse in the mouth and makes their escape, heading down the same route they saw Annalas and Mere take. Along the way the rest of the party figures out how to project their own voices along the mental link, while it becomes clear that Ruth doesn't appear to have a choice in what gets transmitted.
>>57211117That isn't really what a marebito is, but its probably the closest approximation. If we had an actual eldritch horror style, that'd be it, but we don't.
>>57211191I mean technically lovecraft is western, right? So perhaps it's Darkstalker. You know, because tentacles.
>>57211267That fits to as well a degree as marebito, but really we just don't have a player usable category to fit eldritch monstrosities into.Which fucking sucks. I wanna play a cute eldritch girl thats causing people to lose their fucking mind even though she's not actually doing anything out of the ordinary. That shit would be hilarious.
>>57211287Kamigakari doesn't really have any sort of [Mind Manipulation] stuff, though some retooling of Time Wizard B might help you.If your eldritch girl is driving people insane without realising it just make her like... have every single feasible annoying habit, like saying "all of the sudden" or tapping her pencil incessantly on the desk during the class.
>>57211331But thats just an annoying girl.Also, back when i first had the idea, i think i made it darkstalker divine talker A/ Time wizard BIn the same way that moving fast enough makes it seem like time has stopped, i figured that if you look at the reverse of powering yourself up, its weakening everything else.
>>57211128Finally locating an exit to this labyrinthine prison, the party is greeted with fresh air and bright light...and what appears to be a town picked right out of medieval times, complete with cobblestone roads and thatched-roof houses. There's something definitely awry, however, as large craters litter the buildings and roads, broken up boulders appearing to be the cause. Before anyone can investigate the cause, another giant rock whistles overhead, dead-set on its course to crush the lot of them.A few Agility checks are made and most everyone manages to leap away at the last moment, save for least agile of the group, Chen Su. The boulder crashes down, leaving yet another crater in the road and what's likely a pancaked Su, but instead the boulder cracks down the center and splits apart, revealing Ruth leaning over to «Guard» Su. Everyone is confused for a few moments, even Ruth being certain she should have died, but everybody appears surprisingly no worse for wear. A few heartfelt thanks are shared, with Ruth evidently having no idea how to accept compliments, and after a few awkward trades everyone decides that getting out of the line of fire of whatever's tossing these boulders is pretty important. Heading north, where the rock evidently sailed from, it only takes a minute or so before there's a scream of someone clearly not where they're supposed to be from a different direction. The group looks to each other and simultaneously change their course, and it's not long before they're ambushed.Jumping out of the dark corners, tendrils begins to rise and write from the stone before taking shape all around them. It takes the shadowy figures less than a moment to surround the party. It's the first fight of the campaign! Hayate, Ryuko and Ruth seem immediately ready to rumble, though the mental link betrays that Ruth's just as nervous as Rei. Su sticks confidently behind everyone else, trying to remember the magic she'd used in her dreams.
>>57211128Ruth is a reptile in Haxia?I totally thoght she was some kind of purple humanoid Owl/Feathery Dinosaur creature.
>>57211435The fight is an awkward mess, as even with some idea of their capabilities nobody seems to understand their own strengths yet. Rei and Ryuko launch forward faster than they can control, and while they manage to destroy two of them with a punch the unexpected speed sends them off-balance, and they're accosted by more of the shadow creatures. Ruth tussles with one of them, managing to defend herself well enough but making little progress in terms of fighting them off, while Hayate finally summons his own weapon -a wooden bat- and disintegrates a whole group of them with a single swing. Orders are shouted, Su manages to heal up the damage Rei and Ryuko are taking, Ruth keeps Su unharmed, and eventually the teenagers manage to pull through as Ryuko cleans up the last of them with a battlecry, "SPIRIT CHARGE!"The streets are cleared and everyone seems no worse for wear thanks to Su's magic. Ruth denies that she was scared, but Su points out that it's really hard for her to lie to them while they can hear her thoughts. Ruth mentally shouts for everybody to stop listening, they shout back to stop talking, but before the party can get involved in a conversation, there's a slow clap from off screen."So you guys're the ones I'm lookin' for."The man, a huge wall of a person, approaches from around the corner, having evidently watched all of that. He introduces himself as Molo Syngrafeas, and admits that while he has orders to kill them, he'll give them a chance to say goodbye to each other. No reason to be rude. After some bantering and mental panicking, the party girds themselves for a fight."Alright then," Molo says with a wide grin and hefting a massive boulder above his head, "Here we go!"
>>57211602Your interpretation seems a lot closer to reality, now that I look at the picture. Wish I'd thought of that. But yeah, Ruth's a giant angry-looking lizard, tail and everything.
>>57211632The fight begins!...and ends! Rei darts forward before Molo can react, tripping him with «Shadow Breach» and landing a whopping gut-punch that knocks the wind out of him. Molo shakily raises a hand in surprise, beginning to congratulate Rei on the solid blow, but Ryuko's already above him with bloodlust in her eyes. She's consumed by blue flames which channel into one arm, and she calls out her attack name, "Frenzy of Fists!", before promptly making a crater in the ground with Molo's face as the center.There's a moment of silence as the dust clears. Ruth fangirls over the mental link over how cool that looked, while Su and Hayate are left wondering what just happened. Hayate speaks up towards the barely-conscious Molo."...don't feel bad. Er, no, wait, the opposite of that. Feel really bad, and dumb.""GUARDS!" a voice calls from off screen, and the air is filled with the sounds of clattering metal and soldier footsteps. Mere's back, this time with a platoon of soldiers backing her up, which quickly surround the battle scene."We're saved!" Su celebrates, "No more shadows!""Arrest them," Mere points to the group. Twenty bows are pointed threateningly inwards, trained on everyone still conscious."...oh. We're not saved."And so ended Episode 1, evidently titled "Gate" by the GM. I hope you liked the storytime, even if it ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger. Apologies for taking so long to tell it!
>>57211799Why was Molo bombarding the town before the party showed up? Was he trying to draw them out be cause he KNEW they would appear in that town somehow? Or he just bored and smashing houses with chucked boulders for fun?
>>57196565Try looking up CGs for these games(warning H, etc.)https://vndb.org/v445https://vndb.org/v1027https://vndb.org/v102https://vndb.org/v13666Also maybe Baccano, Kekkai Sensen or Concrete Revolutio for anime.
>>57212285Baccano definitely, but for the other two those give off way more of a modern fantasy vibe.
>>57211191>>57211267>>57211287In the core PDF, around page 46 where potential NPCs are mentioned, there's a small section on "Shub-Niggurath" or Kuroyagi-hime, who is a Marebito with the cover Magic Criminal, so Marebito is the race to go for eldritch abominations.
>>57212306It doesn't really seem that way from the fluff though. Its far more geared towards isekai hero's, demon lords, and the like. Sorta like one of those crossover fighting games.
>>57212328Oh, i see. Reading the entry again, She's a marebito on basis of having been summoned. Not so much for being an eldritch horror.
>>57212346In my mind, it's mostly just that she's an other-worlder, so being Marebito makes sense even if other-worlders are way different from one another. If I were to make an eldritch horror I'd make a Marebito and re-fluff the talents, and maybe ask for permission for a different cover more in-line with the character.
>>57212494Frankly speaking, marebito is a bit too broad to apply to eldritch horrors outright, at least as is. Its seems to encompass pretty much anything that "Comes from somewhere else" but thats far too broad a category to lump eldritch monstrosities into when you have regular ass hero's, demon kings, and whatever else have you as the averageAlso keep in mind, the shub niggurath in the game isn't the full on straight up eldritch horror, but a singular small part of them, with the appearance of a human. There's no saying what her actual full on eldritch form would be, race wise.
>>57211401Are you the anon who made a character who was the manifestation of the tip of the transdimentional bendy straw outsiders were using to such the vitality of this universe similar to how the Orz from Sat Control II may or may not have been manifestations of many "fingers" of a single entity dipping into our universe?>Maybe you think Orz are *many bubbles* too. >It is such a joke.>Orz are not *many bubbles* like *campers*. >Orz are just Orz.>I am Orz. >I am one with many *fingers*.>My *fingers* reach through into *heavy space* and you *see* *Orz bubbles*
>>57212533Oh yeah, Marebito is definitely too broad, and it's mostly kind of a reverse-isekai kinda race at least in terms of talents.I don't think a single race can really represent an eldritch horror in this system though, considering they're kind of too high power. I suppose you could go Marebito, and then get the Unclean common racial and then go with Darkstalker talents, or maybe go Magus for Annelidist.
>>57213068What*ever* you decide to do, clearly Unclean needs to be on your talents list no matter what. It just fits.
how would you stat a magic-based godforged regalia?
>>57213082there are already racial talents that talk about being sinful or having forbidden knowledge.So Unclean is not the only potentially relevant one.
>>57215646I recall someone else asking this, but probably more about Artificial Regalia, and I believe the answer was "make it like you would [Form: Ranged], but then make it [Form: Magic]".
>>57213016No?I'm just talking about last thread when this was brought up, and the "Eldritch girl" thing was as far as the idea went.
>>57216017Its not quite that simple. There's additional stats that magic weapons get that no other weapon has, such as Rank, Element, and whether a successful resist check cancels or halves the damage.
>>57212137As a player, I'm honestly unsure. I assume the former, since there's an entire organization out to destroy the Guardians which Molo is part of.
>>57215646Honestly, I'd just let people pick a magical weapon and pretend it's a godforged regalia. Then follow the progression for the Divine Authority Gun in the expansion, and replace PD with MD, and Accuracy with Conjure.Still, if you want to make your own, magical weapons usually come as Rank 2, element none, and resists cancels.
>>57208755Back on this for a moment, we really only need the rest of the godforged regalia and equipment from expansions 4-5 don't we? The other 3's player sections are more or less complete and the last two are more GM focused
>>57220081It doesn't have the regalia (blame whoever made it), but it DOES have items and stuff from the other books.
>>57220081There's another race as well.
>>57222032There is? Because if its Nigimitama, i'm fairly sure thats just divine soul
>>57222595Nah, there's one in Four Guardian Gods, the Sakimitama.
>>57222670hmm. interesting.Well, either way we'll eventually get to it anyways. Even without the table we have the books now, and i just need to get the stuff to start scanning pages, so we'll get it all in due time. On the subject though, i'm thinking we should skip the core book and first expansion for now, since those are more or less complete, and work on the second one. Its got a lot of interesting stuff that needs translated, like additional rule.
What would you peg this character as being?I'm thinking Human Contractor B/Time Wizard A.
>>57225602Armour looks like Titan armour for Legacy B.
>>57225989Thats way too small to be titan armor. Thats more like the cyborg armors in machine god.
>>57225602Dragon Carrier B would be good as well
>>57227358Huh. I never thought of using dragon carrier B for an armored exo-skeleton. I always imagined it as simpler than that, but thats not a bad idea either.
>>57225270Instant what? Noodles? Transmission?
>>57211799Odd way to end an episode, but I liked it. It was really nice to focus more on the characters themselves instead of the things that happened. I hope you had fun telling it. I know the isekai GM already storytimed these episodes, but this episode ended on a cliffhanger and I'm curious what happened next from a character's perspective. Are you going to try storytiming that pokemon campaign you were talking about next, or continue with the isekai campaign?
>>57229645On this subject, i'll get the screenshots for it sometime tonight. It might be a while, but they'll be up at some point.
>>57229712That and Misfits in osaka, i forgot to mention that. Sleepytime for me right now though.
Alright, so I don't somehow fuck up during all this, how should I handle organization for the Regalia Compendium? Right now, I have it by [Form], then [Mode], with some tags attached to each weapon, like if the person using it is treated as having a certain piece of equipment ([Unarmed] or [Restrict: Digital Sorcerer], or what Expansion they're from.
>>57232479The way you're doing it now sounds fine, really
>>57232479didn't the original version have a specific format? Is that not viable?Either way, that sounds fine.
How would you stat the Persona 5 phantom thieves as Godhunters? With or without their personas.
>>57236034So VI and Tristana did the fusion dance and also got some horns.
>>57238673Probably all some variation of Dark Hunter. That's it, I think you just nail it, right then and there. Of course, I imagine they also have varying races- Shit, now I'm imagining Godhunters: Rescuers of the Spirit World, where "rescuer" is a euphemism for "taking shit from assholes ~in the spirit world~".
>>57242160Several of them would be Dark hunter/ Other style with an added element to the weapons or elemental adept at level 5.Makoto would be Dark hunter+contractor A, Futaba would be Dark hunter + Digital sorceror A or B, Ryuji and yusuke would both fall under Arc slayer, Ann would probably fall under elder mage due to concentrate and her status ailment focus, This may be an odd one but haru would probably be Legion A, Morgana would probably be Elder mage B due to how heal focus'd he is. Goro i could see as elder mage A with a focus on grand spell invocation.And as for protag-kun, thats up to you.
>>57239683And while i'm at it, this is Kitsu chiri, one of the more pronounced characters in Sayonara zetsubou sensei.
>>57180221depending on how well playtested these rules are, i could write up a quick homebrew guide on this. Reminds me of tales of berseria's plot point on armatization of malaks.
Jesus this week went fast.
Humans or hanyo?
>>57243912Without something a bit more telling than slightly elongated ears, i'm more inclined to say human.
>>57243912Neither. They are bendy straws.
Misfits in osaka Part 12 is up on Imgur whenever people wanna read it. I'm working on ACIS 1.5 right now.
>>57243926I guess that makes sense.Do human talents fit such flexibility though? It seems like hanyo abilities to acre with change and probably might better fit such an absurd power to maneuver, dodge, and get into places that shouldn't be possible.
>>57236034That belt buckle seems like it would cause problems if she leaned forward or bent over.
>>57243946Okay, in case people don't know yeah, here's the link. If threadmaker the second or third are here, make sure this makes it into next threads OP.Screencapanon.imgur.com
>>57244018And ACIS 1.5 Redux
>>57229645I think I could have told it better, and I took much too long to tell it in the first place, but I'm glad you liked it! I could just keep going with telling the second episode if the folks here would prefer that, rather than the pokemon thing. What do you think?
>>57247440I'd say go for the pokemon thing now, wait on the next episode of ACIS until next thread. We've got less than 50 posts left, so its best to wait. One thing though, when you tell a story and will need to leave, drop a quick message so i know what to put together. If i'd known you weren't done, 1 and 1.5 would have all been one thing.
>>57247718Righto, sorry about that. I'll leave messages to let you know next time.
>>57247770yep yep. It actually hasn't come up yet, so its no biggie. It was an odd point to disappear on though.
How would you do mechs in Kamigakari?I kind of just thought you would say, "This is a M4R "Ebito" " for races and reskin the weapons and armors, calling accessories subsystems or something.
>>57248816Mechs are just big pc's who needs an oil change every now and then.
On today's episode of "Stat Me"...
>>57248816I'd probably say Kotetsu(shin) Jeeg, where they all just, transform into mecha, no Dragon Carrier needed.>>57250494Darkstalker, Dark Hunter, Iunno, Legion and Elder Mage?
>>57252506Darkstalker Dark hunter/Legion or elder mage seems accurate for morigan.
>>57207849>>57207865>>57207884>>57208755>>57232479>>57232624>>57237158All [Item]s from Expansion 01: Requiem for the Godsoul, compiled! More items forthcoming, but I realized that I should not not save inbetween doing these.https://pastebin.com/5LPmW9by
>>57255429that top looks like her tits are in the process of falling out of it.
>>57255429thank you for translating missing parts of the expansions Anon.
>>57255888Ah, oh god, that is- Augh, I am SO SORRY. The compendium does not have anything not already translated. We apologize greatly for any sort of misunderstandings that may have arisen!
>>57259213I was gonna correct you, but i wanted to see how long it would take for you to realize it yourself.Apparently, 3 hours.
>>57259213Don't worry start work on the second expansion, I know that one was only partially translated
One bump from the brink of death, in case ruth anon wants to storytime pokemon real quick
>>57263865you do know that its new thread day right? and that people aren't posting because they were waiting for this thread to die and a new one to be started later today right?
>>57263889yeah, but the starting time is like 10 hours away anyways, so i figured why not
