How effective is he? Phantasmo's pretty ineffective and he gets along just fine. :3

Ineffective in terms of power? That doesn't/shouldn't matter. You're not going to be throwing him into battles or anything are you?

It sounds very CRPGish compared to Final Fantasy and other JRPG's. The early ones even feature the first person perspective that pre-Diablo CRPG's had.

He's a human soldier from a universe where magic and monsters don't exist. I like him as a character, and I've used him before successfully, but in completely different settings than the typical BA scenario. His universe is in fact our own, but set in the future.

^ My character, Cypher, is this. Futuristic soldier, type guy. Who's using basically an experimental suit.

The metaseries consists of mainline Shin Megami Tensei games (SMT 1, SMT 2, SMT 3: Nocturne, SMT 4: Strange Journey). SMT1, 2 and 4 are first person dungeon crawlers. SMT3 is third person, but in NG+ I believe there's an option to switch to first by pressing select.

Then there are the spinoff games; Persona series, Digital Devil Saga duology, Devil Summoner, Devil Survivor and probably a few more.

Every one of the games have multiple endings, except for the Digital Devil Saga duology. Usually the endings are like Bad, Good, Best (Persona), but most of them focus on Law, Neutral and Chaos.

SMT: Nocturne, however, has six entirely different endings. Five of which are determined my dialogue choices throughout the story. The sixth is made if you reach the final floor of the side dungeon (Amala Labyrinth) and it overrides all your decisions (it's considered the "true" ending). SMT: Nocturne also has DMC2 Dante as a guest star character and can be recruited way later on.

My personal favourites are SMT: Nocturne, Persona 4 and Devil Summoner 2.

Is that the one with the ARC suit? I remember talking to you about that a while back, lol.

That doesn't sound ineffective to me. Assuming he has a gun and knows how to use it, he'd easily keep up if not outperform every character I've RP'd with so far.



In unrelated news: 'saney's Death Note swimming lessons sig just came up. It's glorious. :3

He does have one, and he's good with it, but a lot of the characters I've come across in the BA have various powers and defences that make guns fairly ineffective. (My characters would all be susceptible to damage from a gun, just as they would a sword. But a lot of characters I can think of don't have the same limitations.)

Well it's cool, invite him in.

I mean, take a look at Tracey and Phantasmo; they can't keep up with the more powerful characters, but they get their share of proper action.

Re: OoC Thread XXIII: The Tournament shall begin soon! Check out the Events Hall for details!

That's true. I've used him before and I do like him. I'll probably do it anyway, it'll just be difficult to integrate him with other characters I guess.

Re: OoC Thread XXIII: The Tournament shall begin soon! Check out the Events Hall for details!

I think it depends entirely on the other characters themselves, and there are a variety of them.

Re: OoC Thread XXIII: The Tournament shall begin soon! Check out the Events Hall for details!

I have invented various character concepts over the years that never got brought into the BA...largely because I often do not like the 'lets throw our disparate characters & universes together and go at it!' setup that usually occurs with that. Though, I did at least import computer-brain into the BA, even if I've only used him maybe once here.

The VCR is more my style, but I haven't gotten involved in that.

It's probably rather similar, I'll have to check it out. =o

Crossworlds Cafe is more of an organization-run-inter-dimensional-rally-point. idk lol

Still gotta finish my character, didn't really touch it yesterday, but it's not like I'm on a deadline. =3

I'm just saying, the VCR is quite a lot like what you're describing, a place where characters are developed to suit the RP, they don't necessarily have to be as in-depth as regular BA character profiles, and they can be used for one RP or a series of RPs and then discarded.

I mean right here you basically literally describe the VCR again. The only real difference is that instead of having the Council approve characters (which, come on, takes forever) you set your own rules and limitations, suited specifically to the RP you're making, and approve character submissions yourself.

you should totally check it out sometime, you'd probably like it. :>

My favorites were P4 and Strange Journey. Besides his stupid sacrifice at the beginning of the game, I liked Commander Gore. For a large black man with an intimidating name, he was honestly the most pleasant member of the crew on the Red Sprite.

Spoiler:  


Looks good for a zombie too.

Maybe someday I will. Right now, though, I don't even have the capacity to RP here really.
