Okay, the PCs will be Yuki, Noriko, Minato, Shef, Yoake, and Faith.

Faith fits into the party very well. She has powerful ranged attacks (while her Ranged stat isn't too high, it's focused on blasts and her Hypers making it more powerful than you'd expect from a 4 in a stat normally, plus her Requiem empowers it further) which helps fill a gap in the party, especially with that area of effect skill. Plus she has a connection to Yuki which can lead to quite interesting roleplay, and is also the same age as Fuuri so she can keep her company during class and whatnot.

Shef doesn't fit as well into the party being a 28 year old jaded weapons distributor, but... he has decent ranged options, useful contacts, has skills and age that make him good at acting as a "face" for the party when dealing with civilians, especially since his Requiem can help force civilians to get out of danger they may not even notice. Also, he contrasts very nicely with Minato.

Yoake has a pretty damn versatile and interesting Requiem, seeing as it can be used for combat, mobility, or just limiting collateral damage, so she works well with Faith, Shef, and to a lesser extent, Noriko. She has interesting interactions thanks to her returning from that island to show the world Keijo, which also likely makes her work well with Minato whose activities have generated gossip, and Yuki who can be pretty bombastic.

TBF, don't expect the waitlist to be used. It'll only come into play if a player's inactive, or, maybe, if Emp thinks he can handle more players.

Work on a potential forum game for my return to Bay12. Figure out parts that puzzled me before. Find more things to figure out that I can't. Work on another game instead of solving them. Get distracted and stop working. Remember it a week or two later. Remember I'm still on hiatus. Illogically, Be too ashamed to return yet. Repeat ad nauseam.

Finally have a game completely ready. Wait a week before posting it out of laziness.

I'm not expecting it to be used, I'm just doing it just in case.

Okay, so here's the thing. Some of you are pretty bad against evasive foes. Yeah the Unidentified Aramitama and Storm Minds can be hit consistently due to their quirks, but against things like Black Halos some of you are going to have problems.

So right now, Shef and Faith focus on hard hitting attacks with their more "fuck yo evasion" skills being their excel hypers. Minato is also a bit better against Defense than Mobility, but his bias is less pronounced.

Adding to that, Yoake's Requiem tends to help out units with high Mobility by making it much harder for them to be cornered.

So I guess the main question is, are you guys fine with evasive foes dodging your powerful attacks? Because against foes like the Black Halos, what's going to happen is that you're probably going to miss most of your attacks, but in the process, force them into a corner, and execute them.

Because right now, there's a bias on many offensive  Hypers being better against Defense than Mobility. Stuff that hits hard with a single attack rather than something that AoEs or entraps or saturates the air. So the way things are currently shaping up, there will be foes where your powerful attacks don't matter, and you're going to just have to drive them into a corner-store and fuck them.

Is that going to be okay?




Note: This is about the current situation, if people start taking hypers that are easier to land thing would change. As would if say Shef just picks up an SMG as a back up weapon.

I'm personally fine with the situation as is. Though if other people want stuff changed, I won't mind

Thanks to the RNG railing Minato, everyone is now able to spend a point of Resolve to reroll their entire worldline!

...This includes enemies with Resolve to spend, like bosses.

Okay so in the interest of better tailoring matters, could I please get an indication of how flowery/metaphysics/weird/animu you guy want things to be? Because especially with the duels I'm planning, some are stupidly elaborate and flowery... and some are more like a drunken brawl outside a McDonald's parking lot.

I liked how things were in the first and second fights, but as of recently it's really gone off the rails.

Yeah, maybe things have gone a little overboard. The weirdness in the first two battles was great, but not immersion breaking.

Edited action because I realized I forgot to change the first part when I changed the second part.
