I was told it'd be good idea to make a thread. So here's a thread.

There's some stuff that I can answer, but the details as to the invasion and how MHFC came to be is going to be a early chapter 2 thing so I don't want to explain it all just yet.

Some information about the "Invasion" that keeps popping up would be nice, or is that something that will slowly be revealed over time?

So why did you decide to make a quest about magical girls who fight each other on live galactic television?

Also, we may want to give the blue guy a nickname. How about Paranoia Instigator?
No. 89089 ID: ce3b31

I had the idea of an underground fighting league for magical girls a while ago, I can't remember how I came up with it, I was just thinking about it.

I also had an idea for a space-government-controlled gladiatorial giant mecha story. This quest is sort of the combination of those ideas.

Actually at one point the mechas *were* magical girls too but I like this idea better.

I would say we'd corrupted the hell out this quest except it sets itself up for it so perfectly.
No. 89132 ID: ce3b31

Honestly I'm just trying to create situations that's just weird for her to be in. I'm trying to give as many set-ups and 'routes' as possible and make them as awkward as possible.

I also want to make every stupid and inappropriate decision and idea possible- hence the self control rolls and the 1 critical 2 fail

The only time I don't roll is if there's a major consensus that contradicts 'inadvisable' decision (like "tell b3" vs "don't tell B3") or if one path leaves another path behind (although I'm not against picking it up later if it's reasonable)
No. 89134 ID: b0910f

I'd also like to point out that at no point has larama been comfortable about what's going on. She has a lot of self questioning to do. She might be curious about alien bug cock but she might not be to handle one staring her in the face. Also she may not be physically equipped for it.

Considering her sudden Heel bondage thought, pretty sure there's some substance there.

Though I'm just amused by all the awkward that went on both during and after the fight.
No. 89142 ID: ce3b31

she's not comfortable, that doesn't mean she won't become comfortable at some point. she just doesn't know what she's feeling and her mind is basically swirling with everything that's going on

it's almost like a bunch of message board posters are implanting stray thoughts into her head. funny, that.
No. 89206 ID: 8111b6

Just stumbled across this. Seems pretty awesome. Though, I'll approve just about anything involving magical girls.

Still kickin' myself for not keeping up with my own magical girl quest from a long while back.

Are there different classes of magic in this universe and if so what kind of magic does our character specialize at?
No. 89243 ID: baaf70

It's more of a spectrum. Ellandra is sort of a balanced character(melee capable but with Variety of spells) but Shi for instance is a melee /str character focusing magic through her sword. In fact she is I've of the few that can actually damage a low level mahou without magic if she unsheathes since her sword is that good. It's possible its enchanted in a passive way.

There is also of course whatever the azure witch was.

Is it possible to use fashion star to make Larama in head to to camo. In this situation it'd probably be black.
No. 89522 ID: ce3b31

that is possible, yes. fashion star can in fact also change ellandra's skin, and aspects of her body as well. you can't gain or lose height or lose body mass, but you can 'add' stuff or whatever. rememeber: transforming already changes her hair length, that sort of thing is easy.
No. 89566 ID: d3be40

I think it's pretty weird that, throughout chapter 2 up until THAT GIRL's helmet was shattered, the only time a stat other than Self-Control pushed a failed roll into a winning one was during the handshake. Seriously, otherwise it's like all those stat upgrades did nothing!

Hopefully, stronger stats will have a more noticeable effect.
No. 89568 ID: 5db52c

Well, the rolls are d20s, and all our stats are less than half that. Our stat increases are on the order of a tenth of that! So yeah, it makes sense that the die roll is still the biggest factor.

Then there's the auto and crit fails / success (1 2 19 20), which mean the stats don't even matter a fifth of the time.
No. 89572 ID: ce3b31

you guys have also had some pretty dumb luck with these rolls- I mean, you keep failing the easier rolls and keep succeeding at the harder ones.

as for this actually HAPPENING.. if the dice roll that way. IT'd be PRETTY HARD unless she hits zero and the mechanic for that kicks in.

As for regretting that, if you want her to be fine with it, that's up to you guys:p I will say that, right now, Larama has no interest in Oden.

okay I also think the "arrange drunken liason with a kid" suggestions are super grody but this is a disproportionate response
No. 89658 ID: 321d85

I'm still confused about the Self Control rolls. We succeeded on the roll, I thought that was supposed to have us choose the more self-controlled action (regardless of whether that was our suggestion or not, for some reason). But instead we're all "heyyyyy, shhe knows what sheeeeez talkin' 'bout." I mean, I guess we didn't take another shot ourselves, yet?
No. 89659 ID: 5db52c

Yeah, that confused me for a while, too.

Self control rolls appear to be kinda backwards. "Failing" a self control roll means we failed to overcome our self control. Which is what you'd usually describe as succeeding in controlling yourself.

Basically, look at it as our dumb ideas / bad impulses rolling to try and succeed and make themselves happen.

>B2 / Bro stuff
...it occurs to me, before we even get to the inappropriate age and incest questions, to ask if she's even interested in dudes. Our only data points for interest so far has been an alien gal, and (morbid?) fascination with porn of herself.
No. 89660 ID: b0910f

She is pan, but leans female. As for self control rolls I'm probably going to make them make more sense for day three.. Probably roll plus self control vs avg 20
No. 89661 ID: d958ad

I feel like it's counter-intuitive myself but no, self-control successes are succeeding to BYPASS self-control. It's a failure of self-control that requires the success of an inappropriate suggestion to get through. In other words, it's a dice check AGAINST self-control. A failure means the self-control wins.
No. 89667 ID: ce3b31

if anyone cares, I'm not going to offiicallyu pin down a location of B3's dojinshi store, but I was thinking very heavily of one of the K-Books on Otome Road in Ikebukuro- particularly, the one that sells non-yaoi porn dojinshi. So if you NEED a location for that store there you go
No. 89672 ID: 948196

question about self control, if one poster gives a bad suggestion (kiss a random dude, grope our boss etc) and no one votes for it, does it still happen if we fail the self control check?
No. 89674 ID: 161883

All suggestions are thoughts that pass by her mind. The dc of the self control roll is related to how temping it is, how bad it is, and how many votes it gets, but sometimes she does one of the things and then nothing else is relevant or the thought is not relevant. She couldn't invite oden bc he couldn't get here anyway
No. 89680 ID: 948196

is there a threshold of how bad something is before you don't roll it? for example if someone makes a suggestion to randomly shoot someone, or something else with equally disastrous consequences and then the dice rolls a 20 the self control check are we screwed?
No. 89686 ID: 161883

If it makes no sense at all then i won't bother. But anything possible could happen if the roll is made

In the future we need to make sure we spend more time with our ovi-futa alien girlfriend-slash-sex-slave because if we keep hanging out with our little brother his whining is eventually going to roll a critical versus our self control resulting in incestuous /ss/ statutory rape.

No. 90189 ID: 296917

On the subject of dice... personally I don't like crits at all when they override skill checks. I feel like if you want to make high/low rolls more bombastic you could give a bonus/penalty on top of the roll and maybe have huge successes or huge failures have higher effects. Like say if you roll a 1 or 2 you get a -10 or -5 penalty on top of rolling low, and if you wind up 20 below a skill check it counts as a critical failure. On the other end of things, rolling a 19 would be +5, 20 would be +10, and getting 20 above a skill check results in a critical success.

This way, the 19 would have resulted in a 14 after the self control penalty, falling short of the 20 difficulty rating. Even rolling a 20 wouldn't have broken self control, which would make sense there considering the situation. It would have been a near failure though, falling one point short.

If you want things to be more extreme you could make the adjustments higher.

On the other hand you could simply remove automatic success/failure and use a second roll to decide how extreme the success/failure is.
No. 90191 ID: 5db52c

>should I break out the d30?
I dunno. The wild swings between things working and blowing up in our face make the combat a lot of fun, and pretty unpredictable.

...it's just a little frustrating that the same mechanic that can make us fall on our ass, or blow a spell up in our face, could also make us throw ourselves in bed with our kid brother on a whim. Which is somewhat exacerbated by how quickly self control depletes itself, so the threshold for massive disaster drops rapidly. After resisting twice or so we're in trouble.

That said, I'm not entirely sure it should be fixed / changed. I mean, it would be a relief to have things a little more predicable, but running on the knife edge of catastrophe does add to the tension, and our crazed planning. Plus some of the ways we've weaseled out of things have been pretty funny.

So, uh, mixed feelings?

>personally I don't like crits at all when they override skill checks.

No. 90339 ID: ce3b31

He hadn't been born yet during the critical 6 year period that the imprinting would have taken place for her.

This doesn't explain *his* attraction though. Part of it might be his lack of a social life.
