I'll try to explain as best I can. First of all in my Roleplays I always use mamonos, according to what I would say is more serious than anything, but this will not prevent occasional comic relief. The kind of setting, well, let's say it would be something in the horror survivor style with a few hints of action.
As for history, if not needing to know you can skip this part, but if you want I can give you a brief summary. Firstly, everything revolves around the entity known as Umbra, which has been imprisoned for more time than can be counted on, but recently it has given rise to a cult that seeks to release its seals and release it in the world again. Even sealed Umbra can still influence the world, especially mamonos in ways that would even be difficult to describe.
I feel you man. I almost had to do a pt test myself. Been driving all night had no sleep then I had to cover a mortar range. Luckily for me I couldn't leave because the range was hot and they need a medic to cover it or they can't shoot.
Ooooooo! I wouldn't be too worried but the entire battalion knows me for some reason. Hell one of the generals of the 40th ID knows my name now! I dont onow how I got in this position but it's seriously lowered my inhibitions and I don't care about anyone wanting a word with me.
It doesn't have much physical value bit it have a bunch of sentimental value. This armor was the first thing he had when he arrived to that world. It's the only thing that has stayed with him despite all his hardships. To retire the armor is to retire a part of him.
Because you choose to be Armata’s man you curious boy. You wanted his Vampiric touch sense the day you lapped water out of his palms.
I’m kidding, Bt. It’s you because you fight like Marcus does. Your style is brutal, and you rely on strength. Also, you’re a monster hunter. Realize it or not, you and Marcus are monster slayers. Brothers of a profession. To see those two fight is an awesome idea.
Plus you stabbed Marcus with a dagger cursed by Victivius (The Ultimate Evil Mastermind.) So Marcus has a score to settle.
I have made my entrance. The ball is in your court now Jorge. Don't worry though, while I have not directly approached Ne'zon, I have made certain that she is aware of my presence with the subtlety that I've become famouse for.
Hey guys I ironed the first part of the RP I mentioned, let me know if anyone is interested, I can put it up later in the day, so I can do the fine tuning depending on the roles your character/s would play.
My plan is simple. Aro knowing shit may go south if he goes alone, as in people dying, planets disappearing and dimensions collapsing he decided to ask several people for their assistence (means of contact can vary). Maybe even offer in some prize in there, so mercs are welcome.
However, some circumstances not known to them, such as Arael being in it for more than just the grail and scolding (mangling, it all depends on what happens) the Sailor Senshi. The one who Arael was looking for is there, and things won't be pretty. Also, it turns out Aro/Arael know few people there.
When he demands they fix what he want of them, they inform the group the timing of our visit is bad. They are actually at War and asked for our assistence. An attack is happening as they speak and Queen Serenity begs us to help them defend.
It sounds good buy the goddess isn't a fighter at all. Not since she lost most of her power and was replaced. The best she could do is provide council and even then she can only project an image for so long. So if I join it wont be in a combat or buffing role, the best I can do is provide council to all the parties involved. Hell I could insult Arael and not have to worry becaue it's all telepathic and she's basically in limbo. You cant just enter limbo unless you're dead or dying.
Thanks doc. I'm going to assume that you meant me making a kebab out of those two. I was planning on hitting Armata but I owed him a debt and I was mostly positive that Tirush's words were true regarding the power of the spell.
Well, as the mighty Praetor you should still be at you with a sword or some kind of blade, no? Only 2 persons there knows that Aro is more than what he is showing for the public, so it would be an honor to fight side by side with Jorge in a God of war-ish style skirmish.
Oh, I meant that only two people from the Senshi verse know who Arael is, not his occupation mind you, just that he's not a common human (or heck even Lunarian Human), despite looking just like one. That's why a bit of good old fashioned beat em up old school would do, spamming Hakai and flashy superpowered attacks aka showing off too much would make everyone's alarm bells ring.
There's no gods to slay, some 'Monsters Of The Day' with assorted alien-monster-things would be on the menu actually. By GoW-ish, I meant the dinamic of dropping said fiends with various melee weapons and small magic/energy manip. feats. And by small I mean small, at least for a bit.
As for the time period it's in, from our world perspective it would be shortly after LoS' marriage with Asja, 6 months-7 months at best. Didn't you won the Vantulos Hunt somewhere around that period, though?
Anyways, if you do not feel like it, no biggie, guess I'll just scrap this one too and save myself the trouble setting it up.
Aro: It's not that Aro. It's just that I'd really like to RP the G-lady and see how she would do without her champion. Plus my guy is mortal and no stronger than a larger man now. Hes been spurned by his patron and has to redeem himself or be stuck like this.
I find the the lack of action chars in the RP disturbing. If my char would have to do the grinding alone, there's really no point in even attempting, as the entire point of the RP is lost fallen into the shitter, along with any development for any of my character.
The people who would participate, me excluded aren't up for the action/combat part, which is fine mind you, but without other combatants the whole RP would change completely from what I intended it to be.
So how long will the rp last story wise Aro? Like a month in game or what? Because if I join you combat wise I wont be as strong and you'll have to keep the hordes down to a minimum... Or I could tey and bring out the Prime body and have him whoop some ass. That way i could have the g lady and the knight innthe same picture and not hate each other.
I have one more but with sadly same issue. Oh well, I had to slightly revision and use my writers space manipulation and move the place of action away from the combat zone of the sudden attack. Urban planner Aro, at your service. Now to erease and rectify the little issues t created.
It is also risky to give someone new to do the combat, as it can quickly escalate into god modnig or some form of derailment.
As for in game length, it should be several days to a week, and just cleaning house in few situations is combat-y enough, you know, sweep the hood clean of hostiles and stuff.
Well Rep, at least I know you so I can go 'let's see who manages to kill more footsoldiers with power restrictions.' I can see our characters doing shit like that no problem and I know you can pull it off no sweat.
I wouldn't call it risky Aro. You could always make use of a new character who isn't as godlike when you RP with someone else. RK's doing it with his Aeron character and it seems to be working out so far.
I think as long as the rules of engagement are worked out ahead of time, there wouldn't be an issue. The new(ish) guys I spoke with seemed capable. S9 is the newest of our group and he knows his stuff, so others could be fine too, you never know.
If it helps, you can institute an IC rule of no autohitting in combat. In a nutshell no hitting another player's character without giving them a chance to block or dodge. It allows for combat to become creative and the opposing PC may do something unexpected.
While we're on the subject this is something our group could work on as well. I've noticed autohitting done throughout the Hunt and the other current RPs. I'm not attempting to bash anybody, I'm just suggesting that perhaps we could tone it down a few notches.
I suppose Hound would best suit the mission, his character is after all “The Destroyer”. Arguably the best warrior in our group next to Tirush. There is also the character I’ll be playing after my story is done that might fit the bill.
@Flame I don't really think it's that much of an issue now, considering the amount of communication we hold. I don't mind autohits in that context, because if not for some, these fights would drag on indefinitely.
So we're going dynasty warriors and destroying hordes? I cant do that Aro. The best I can do is about three or so people at a time. I may be good at fighting but that's too much for me. I hold my own extremely well in duels or when supported by others but even I have my limits.
@Doc: I mean in the context that players let their OCs make mistakes to end the fights. Personally I find autohits to be annoying and unfair as it basically doesn't give the character a chance to react. You can still have a good fight without any autohitting, and if the GM knows what he or she is doing, then the bad guys either die, retreat, or surrender, thus allowing the story to continue. I don't mind anyone going ham on the minions though.
While I see yoir point I have to disagree, because it's not up to anyone but the player to determine how other OCs behave. If an OC gets knocked out or winded or slips up, that's the player's choice, and a good GM will know how to rectify. Scorn is a good present example, because he's been clear in every engagement how it's supposed to turn out and he's made optioms for each situation. It's better to ask ahead of time how long or how a fight is supposed to turn out, and improv in between, let the OCs act how the player wants.
At the least, to make clear the rules of engagement before the RP even starts.
Yeah Flame, I had to do my own yard work a bit back, though I had to cut tree limbs. Had to go buy a saw, and was surprised to find this fold up saw that reminded me of a bloodborne weapon lol. It has teeth that cut both ways and works pretty good.
And I know what you mean Doc. I was glad to get home mysef back when I messaged. Been a good calm day, and I couldn't ask for much better for my birthday.
I don't think Spaz saw I made the RP, so I'll have to tell him later, and Idk about Rep since he didn't confirm. That would be it for now, feel free to join guys. If not now there will be a window of opportunity later.
I wull set up the thread after work BTR when I will have an unocupied mind to dedicate for the task.
Doc: It would be hard to tell since my armor has never been cleaned and is a patchy black, but I'm sure that she could smell the bbq knight if she's any way familiar with the smell.
Doc would anyone in the family like to see Nezzie again? I need to make this as open as possible to help S9 completehis arc of this story.
Well of course, everybody would. The only question is, why/how would any of the family be where she is? The only conceivable person would be Antoinette, I think, unless you have an idea of what you want to happen. Let me know and we could work it out.
I feel you jester. I want our characters to get along and be bros but all the action happens while you're not here. It feels bad man, especially since he wants to help the man but he can't help bus start to see him as a burden.
I was hoping for that S9. I even threw a little eldritch something in there for y'all.
Ehh, don't worry about that or that, mate. He's seeing his uselessness around here. And that is starting to work on his head, pretty badly. He's got a charged shank with the increasing desire to plunge it into somebody and his wounds are healing. Slowly, but surely.
And, well, I do what I can to answer once I get home.
Well I kinda gotta go to bed for the moment since it's already 1 am and I gotta get uo at 6 for work, but if all goes well I work a morning shift. After it's over at 5 (or sooner if I'm insanely lucky) I should be good and free tomorrow afternoon since there's no home plans as far as I know.
I'll definitely gorge on everything in the morn and respond to everything I had plans too until I had stuff come up here...definitely can't wait for Monday though, even if I end up losing some hours because my coworker is back.
+2 Windblade, +2 Hand Crossbow, with cord and grapple, Planewalker Ring, Boots of Leaping, Shadecloak. And 300 gp, and a lantern and oil. And snazzy clothes, and a nice hat. And a Timberwolf animal companion. And a flask of wine.
Sup folks? Are you tired of work or lazying around?
Anyways, Flame to answer you
First Armor and weapons in my Zed Apocalypse scenario,
Armor made of notebooks, those with hard covers, Power tape or any strong tape and newspaers. . Lightweight and durable if one have the patience and Time to cratf it properly (with an ongoing apocalypse) mind you upgraded or replaced with better when/if possible. On top I'd wear my combat fatigues and boots (I'm still in reserve).
For weapons, one of my wallhangers (my wallhangers are all actually usable) and my crowbar, a multi tool, Id swap any blade for a crowbar. So a short blade, a machette and crowbar combo and I'm golden melee. Mid range, my speargun, I have many spears/darts and can possibly make more with all the tools and Steel rods I have in my backyard. Silent and cheap to mantain.
I'd avoid gunfire near my house, especially when it's days in the outbrake and they are slowly thinning out. You don't attract small groups all over to form a megamob around your fortress the first thing in the morning, you just don't.
Go to a community college and get all your mandatory classes out of the way. Also don't take a long break because you will forget what you learned and will loose motivation.
But if you want a story heres a short one. I almost died of alcohol poisoning and if I drink my body will reject it and I'll most likely puke it up in minutes. I don't remember how that happened but it did.
Also if I'm lucky I'll be back on Saturday and not Monday.
Four hour drive for me, BT. And that's assuming that no other cars are on the road.
And los, I second everything BT said, especially the not stopping part. It's very difficult to get started again mentally. And my advice, stay the hell away from college politics. They're toxic in the extreme.
If a girl says she likes you but "needs time to decide" she's a gutterslut who has her fingers in about a half dozen guys.
Dont eat tide pods without cooking them first. Carry a sword at all times. And if somebody generously offers you all the answers to your next physics exam, it's probably Asmodeus and you should stab them because they'll ask for your soul in return.
You're not wrong doc. I will argue that he kinds of sees reason to do so. I mean, between the fiery wyvern upfront with her thoughts, the undeads masked in their own sense of superiority and the enemies that would see them dead, Prad sees no real shoulder to whom voice his worries or potential insight. Except Alburn and Praetor, the only other humans onboard.
And right now, the only ear willing to hear him is busy with his own wounds. Prad's only bridge for interaction is cut off by Tirush's proximity.
Not really, Ibs. We are nearing the end of this act of the Rp, but we have 83 posts left before the thread would max out. So take this time to enjoy some character development and world building. Ask Barnabus questions, talk to Armata, explore some mythos by asking of the world.
Bt already raised a valid question earlier about how the common tongue of Armata’s world is the same as MGE. I have information for all that.
Lastly, I’ll post when I can. Need to go feed Hound’s pets again. Poor guy won’t make it home again due to work.
There is that, doc. Mostly though, he is pretty afraid of anyone not human. Seeing the scope of her powers, as well as still recovering his meams of self defense means that right now, he would consider trying to talk to the non-human roster a death sentence.
Praetor already opened a wedge amidst Prad's sea of terror he's experiencing. Well, sea turning into one of violence, to be more precise. But, yes, Praetor being friends with Tirush will influence Prad's degree of paranoia, considering the metal man is literally letting her lick part of his injuries away.
Assuming she'd want to, just be careful not to sneak up on the poor man.
She deals a hard hand, but she's not callous. I think that it's just a lack of clear communication between them. Common is her third language, and she's not fully used to it and how it sounds to some people.
I never claimed to be refined. I’m a savage and a drunkard, but I’m not a pleb. Besides, higher the class the higher it ranks on the shit meter. High class and fancy is boring and loaded with shit. Keep your top hats and champagne, I’ll stick to my work boots and rum.
Nice to see you as well Flame. Works running me so hard I could outrun the Mach 5. Finally nice to sit down and prop my feet up. This week sapped me good. I’m sick as a dog and I have early stage trench foot. Depending on my condition Monday morning I may take leave till I’m better.
That works too. Although I was suggesting, would he decide to hire you, that'd I'd simply wander off. Knowing your reputation and what not, I'm sure your services, save for the special occasion, are not given. Assuming he does, I'd disappear, making his expense look like a massive waste.
I don't know. You tell them people around his little circus of a kingdom who were mostly thrown in subterrian housing where they get no sunlight each day all day. Ask one of them what color the sky is, they'll answer; what's a sky?
Apparently, sunlight is a luxury where this little man lives.
Maybae. Nah it’s just that every wife wants multiple rounds, so I need a break in between. There are the incidents though where them and I abstain from snu-snu for a week, then when we can’t take it anymore we have a giant sex mosh pit.
Something about a manga with fetishes people wouldn't quite welcome. Think of it as a 2 girls, 1 cup thing, if it was in japan, with...little kids involved, I think. Didn't look it up, but heard fragments about it, especially the part about not looking it up.
That’s just it, S9. It’s about boy love. Clearly those in the in show are underage. The trap factor doesn’t bother me, it’s the obvious age range that does. Sickening and cringe worthy. Gwyndolin is nice to look at though.
Well you've never seen the OG dragonkin girl Doc. Yorshka is quite the pretty little thing, but I gotta say after much deliberation that Priscilla of the first game beats her. She's too adorable and her tail is fluffeh...and she's taller still than Yorshka and not quite as helpless.
Of course Priscilla is waifu material, but anyone who's played the whole of the Dark Souls series here likely finds Quelagg to be the Babe of the series (ignoring Gwynevere's "amazing chest ahead")
How's your weekend guys? I finally had some sleep, between my job and all the work I have at home it was needed. One can not function with 2 hours of sleep dayly, if even that sometimes for an extended period of time.
You want to have a laugh, Btw... For the whole reserve force for my entire region I'm the first in knowledge (one does not simply give any azimuth, bearing and stuffas the results might be disastrous) and physical tests out of 4 candidates. And we boast one of the best and modern artillery battalions in Europe. But not in manpower, sadly...
Just to be on the safe side, I'd better say this now! If we (Earthlings/Humans) ever encounter Monster Girls and god forbid wage war against them, all the data I'd send in wouldn't be so reliable, between 'impossible misses' to 'accidental' friendly fire for those deserving (ones that do Very bad things to Mamono) would happen quite often.
Bah. After a couple months of misunderstandings and the religious fundamentalists freaking out negotiations will open up and trade and immigration/emigration will start to happen. The, we just want to have sex and get married, aspect of mamono doesn't exactly make enemies.
Of course I could see womens groups freaking out once the mamono start swarming in of course and the religious fundamentalists will likely continue to freak out until their inevitable extinction but thats not my problem. The middle east would probably be taken over by various Pharoahs and Apopphis's.
Mine neither, with such willpower I'd turn Humancubus(tm) and laugh in the World Leadership's face, especially when my Waifu turned Humono(tm) and I would casually land in their front lawn for shits and giggles.
Sense of duty? My duty is to my peoples. Smexy monster girls don't want to hurt my peoples. If an ogre or hellhound or other such monster frightens my peoples then I shall smite them with the fury of 10,000 raging chameleons. Otherwise, they I shall permit them to live in peace woth my peoples and mayhaps become one of my peoples.
Oh, there's nothing much to explain, It was a term I coined stoned, arguing with people about the morality, genocides and whatnot in MGE, but if I had to guess...
A 'Monsterized' Human coupled with a 'Humanized' Monster Girl. A perfect match, legendary dual synergy, ever growing in understanding each other thus their 'stamina' and power level constantly increases.
Man just imagine having one who can tell me if I'm doing something with my energy, like am I on the right track or just a hopeless case would be a massive help, not like she's not providing me more energy that I give her, becaouse let's be honest here energy is energy at the end of the day (MGs must have a sucky conversion rate, seriously).
I'd also learn to leech the shit out of the energy of others it does not matter who you are, the CG or her fierce rival the DL, even The Mighty Reptile King, for the matter. I'd suckle on all the precious energy sources like a random Sponge Bob with water, because energy is energy you guessed, but if it's free it's so much sweeter... Mh Hm Hm Hm....
Once strong enough, there's no telling what a loon like me would do out of boredom and Justice!
Now watch my hood been cratered for shit and giggles,
Before, in the great socialism (lol) this land was given to the people to make their garden, now only few fossils stil works this land, so a perfect ground to devastate!
Nor the humans of the two verses are the same, and no one knows my mindpower, not even I know. For all we know physics are too different and we can't coexist at all (hopefully massive explosions).
Anyways, I just lost one of the best little pieces I wrote in ages ;( gone...
It was about a Mediterranean evening, complete with, breeze, pine trees and sea, birds, a doe and its young, a rabbit, birds and an old man. Then about an explosion, a female sweetly mocking voice, grunts of rage and there it stopped.
Feel how you will, say what you will, in the end all recognize the strength of The Destroyer. Can’t really comment on the current topic as it holds nothing for me to say, only that there is nothing to suckle from me.
What are you talking about? Mamono are too over powered, they corrupt land with their DE, they turn humans/animals/objects just by being near them. Its even mentioned a few times that a regular mamono is stronger than a well trained human warrior.
Either mamono need to be nerfed or humans need to be buffed
Actually Humans in MGE are heavily nerfed compared to many verses of similar power tier.
I can imagine how much boring each consecutive arc would be. Like mixing DB/Z/S, Bleach, Naruto, Sailor Moon with a lot of OPM and aditional sprinkle or two of plot armorinium dust.
PronZ yeah, quite good is mr KC at making MGs, but his world sucks, like what is where? what are the universal constants? Tsk Tsk, shame though, would be a great Hentai with Plot!, hell it could even become H anime in 12+ episodes per season. I guarantee that! KC just don't see potential and profit, for cryin out loud!
Humans aren’t going anywhere. The Mamono need them in order to thrive, a balance will be found. (Sorry Scorn) True monsters like Armata are the end of people. Armata is a cold, callus, master warlord who see’s little need for humans beyond food. Until you recognize that BT, I’ll be right there to stop ya my friend. Love ya like bro, but I’ll do what I have to.
Within typical setting of the genre, no not really. In basic fantasy the monster is always stronger than the average soldier. That's why the town guard has to rely on the wandering adventurer to save the day.
As to the corruption, it never gives a timeline as to how long the corruptive power takes. I sincerely doubt that you could corrupt an object just by handing it to a devilbug and calling it good. Hell corruptive power is a way KC has demonstrated immense power. It's one of the ways that shows lilim are overwhelmingly strong in that they could corrupt a region instantly where as in most species it likely takes decades to centuries for a population to corrupt an area. Species like lilim a baphomets are already nerfed, not due to a lack of power but due to rarity and general inaction. Druella, while among the most vocal lilim, has only ever taken action against Lescatie and that's over centuries of her lifespan. If she actually tried she could probably corrupt the planet in a couple of months but she doesn't, for several reasons.
The corruptive power is also within genre as it gives the heroes the reason why their heroic deeds are urgently needed.
You're wanting a fair playing field Jorge. Fair playing fields don't make heroes or legends.
It seems that we are at an impasse my friends. Ill stand to ensure the survival of humanity at all costs while you all work to your agendas. My loyalties lay with my people and i shall ensure their safety no matter what it costs me.
One question, oh mighty Vampire Lord, do you have some fast draining ways to drink them en masse? No offence intended, but that seems kind of a slow metod of extermination. Me, I'd just drink their whole Qudrant and go my merry way for a solar system dessert.
But my favorite is actually taking form and letting the people see you as you wreck havock on their whole world. They're silenced like that one songs 'mouses'. To see the look of shock, fear and desperation on the faces of the inhabitants, until you grow bored and blow the whole shit up.
Aro, beyond the fact that mamono with immense amounts of DE can flash monsterize a region, we don't have a power tier. We don't even know how far the reach is for the instant corruption. It could easily be less than 50 miles given the fantasy setting. That's absolutely minuscule in comparison to everything you brought up.
I meant that all get their way, plot armor and shields, like all those shows combined, therefore it would be simple H Ova series with 5 (at best) episodes as it is now.
If KC used his businessman part of the brain, He'd either rework this for an aniem adaptation, or make a spinoff, a similar yet different verse that works a bit differently, tweak the thing a bit and a 2-3 season of a 12+ episodes MGE is guaranteed!
Not sure what you are driving at, Aro. But Armata, is beyond the Demon Lord. He’s a hateful being drenched in vengeance. Only three individuals have made an impact on his life. The only mortal to make an impact on Armata, is Jorge.
I know that, what I don't know is if you have some way of 'harvesting' en masse (an entire worlds population worth) those pesky ningens, as not play with your food, I mean. Chasing after them is fun up the 10th person that flees in fear it gets old real quick.
“K”. That’s all you have to comment? An assassination was placed on Armata’s life the day he was born. His legacy was foretold to bring about utter destruction to the Higher Vampires. His life, bringing forth Pramool. He had no chance of happiness until he met Deidre and Tirush.
Jester, stop this cryptic speech with Prad. He’s extremely cool and a world of greatness ahead of him. Get him in this game. Same for all of you. Barnabus is a book, please indulge in this world I built. Otherwise I feel my time is wasted.
