gonna plug this here because i have no idea what's going on with my housing situation anymore and my brother and i need cash to ensure we don't end up on the streets Again

i've been taking custom TCP commissions for a while now and want to open it up to yall as well, considering they're pretty damn fun for me and i figure if there's gonna be interest, it's probably here. i make bases for these little guys and recolor to match people's commissions, and you can get one for a lot cheaper if you order on a base. using bases helps us work on a personal project of indexing all the types we can think of, which i hope to release some time next year.

the team that works with me on TCP got over 200 types based already and a generator that's made...i want to say 17 septillion? 17 sextillion? combinations of unique TCPs with strange and bizarre qualities, if you want to pay 10 bucks for a random one. these randomized little guys also have the potential to be more than one type.

i also have regular design commissions listed here: https://twitter.com/rinmortis/status/807724346533822464 and if you're down to get a TCP (or anything) of your own, email me at ringormortis@gmail.com and i will hook you up.

we need to seriously start considering what cat to make next. some powerful ones that could be useful if we can wrangle them;
NOT: the concept of other, everything that is, they are not, could work like the anti-meme SCP, "it is not round" "it is not made of glass" etc.
SKIP: the idea of passing over something, skipping from point A to C without going through B, possibly teleportation or KING CRIMSON powers.

Hm. Maybe we can think of this from the perspective of an RTS or SRPG. Not necessarily entirely passive, but inflicting status effects, limiting terrain, and other debilitating effects. Think building constructs in Tactical RPGs, or Geo Symbols/Geo Blocks in Disgaea. I think stuff like that would be extremely effective if we could do that, or anything remotely like it.

Neutronium golem TCP
No. 109504 ID: db0da2

Favored TCP ideas:

Dwarf cat, as a craftsman/engineer for our larger projects.

Pheonix, giant, or Leviathan, Marnet turned out nicely, I think there's a lot of potential in powerful and beefy creature-types, especially considering how Spit won't know what they are. We could also do a body type if we feel like being more conventional.

Void type, that's "Void", not "void", if we did an abstract I'd want it to be this one, we'd have maximum synergy with it and the best shot at controlling it.

We might want to try a spy, eye, sight, or satellite type, to get the information advantage over Spit.
No. 109510 ID: 9876c4

I'm not a very good powergamer, but the idea of a dwarven TCP makes me giggle a bit.

particularly if it's a Scottish Fold that speaks in brogue.
No. 109529 ID: 0c367f

Exactly what I was going to say: Big fan of the idea of some sort of TCP we can use for surveillance/espionage.

You also mention "I think there's a lot of potential in powerful and beefy creature-types, especially considering how Spit won't know what they are." The fact that we know about things unique to Earth is probably a big advantage.

For these reasons I'm currently leaning towards a CHAMELEON TCP.
No. 109535 ID: dd5b4d

Go for maximum versatility: SQUID TCP

Camouflage! Jet nozzle! Tentacles! Possibly a big type if we get a giant squid.

Or perhaps octopus. It just doesn't roll off the tongue as well as squid though.
No. 109536 ID: db0da2

Now that I've slept on it I think a sight TCP is a necessity. We have to know what Spit is doing as soon as possible to avoid being blindsided. A camouflage-capable TCP is all well and good, but it still requires sending a cat into Spit's territory whenever we want to learn anything. With a sight TCP we'll be able to spy on Spit remotely, possibly even through walls! Abstract types are supposedly dangerous, but I can't help but feel that the hype can only help us in this case, given that "sight" is about as far from any combat related concept as possible.

Singularity tcp. A walking black hole is perfectly safe, right?
No. 109538 ID: b15da4

Sure, as long as it's made of antimatter.
No. 109542 ID: b412df

If we focus on making things to surprise Spit with, then a Technician Type or Alchemist Type might be useful.

Although knowledge on what Spit is doing would certainly be useful, something like a Surveillance Type or a Spy Type.

Then again Spit's speciality is being sadistic from what the other's said, so maybe a Therapist Type might help. Also since it seems some TCP's abilities are painful to use.

So many choices.
No. 109543 ID: db0da2

You're both thinking too small. Clearly, the only way we can adequately protect ourselves is with an omnipotence TCP.
No. 109544 ID: 67456a

To put it bluntly, the sheer power required for an Omnipotence TCP would probably completely destroy it before it could do one thing. I mean, Buddy nearly killed herself casting magic, and she's only knife type.

It's like trying to channel an entire nuclear plant through a lightbulb. Just not a good idea.
No. 109546 ID: db0da2

Mhhmmmm, you're right of course, true, true-


Spit has been known to cheat by attacking other gods IRL, which means the only way to beat her must be...!

No. 109555 ID: dbf8a5

If it's camouflage you want, why not go all the way to an INVISIBLE, INTANGIBLE, PLOTERGEIST TCP. Instead of just masking its visual presense, it could hide inside of walls to avoid being smelled, heard, or touched. It would be the perfect saboteur, able to float right through the enemy's defenses for easy access to their base's vulnerable internal systems. It would also provide a good opportunity to talk to the enemy's TCPs in order to convert them.
No. 109556 ID: 398fe1

TCPs are based on single nouns.
No. 109557 ID: db0da2

I know, I was just being colorful. My actual suggestion is just a "poltergeist" type, though I still prefer "sight" or "surveillance".

No. 109559 ID: d662ef

I don't think we should make another weapon type, but if we did I would want it to be...

The cat of promised victory, EXCALICAT! Literal guaranteed victory is probably the best ability a TCP could have, but even if it doesn't quite work that way I can't imagine Catiburn being anything other than stunningly powerful. The cost to use its abilities could be prohibitively high, but if it takes on the characteristics of Excalibur's scabbard as well it should be durable enough to take it, though I wouldn't want to try making it use magic.
No. 109562 ID: 8111b6

Forget that. If one's going foor a weapon, go whole hog. GAU-8. Could get some BRRRRRRRRT goin' on. On a related note, isn't 'gau' one of those onomatopoeic words for big cats?

as such, we're prrrobably gonna make a new disthread for our quests as a whole, and maybe even a group drawthread to show off everything we concept (that isn't a spoiler). lots of neat things in the works, and if you want to toss us a few bucks, we now have merch out!

I'm a bit irked that both Wretch and Eastwood are somehow coming to the conclusion that Void is either a habitual liar or flirts with everyone when we don't actually do either of those things. We wanted to fuck with Spit because Spit is a bad person. Why was this impossible to get across?
No. 109672 ID: 398fe1

...in the end I guess it feels like Void's dialogue in the quest itself doesn't reflect the attitude or opinions of suggesters anymore.
No. 109676 ID: 85cc2c

ill take some blame for this, personally
i was pretty offput and distressed by the sheer amount of flirting and the nature of it towards spit, and i was hesitant to include a lot of it in voidsy's actual responses (when doing so would have been a lot more accurate towards the character)

my bad there, honestly.
No. 109677 ID: 3abd97

/quest/ has something of an irreverent and disrespectful attitude towards villains in general. It's easy to be flippant when any real consequences or threats exist within the narrative, but not outside it. And refusing to take certain people seriously sometimes throws the off their game.

Honestly, blatantly sexualizing threats could be seen as something of a defense mechanism, or a power play.
No. 109678 ID: 65ec8d

There might have been something lost in the format. We're using text, after all, and the difference between a suggester ironically flirting and actually flirting isn't necessarily going to be clear.

Like, personally, I posted a "flirty" suggestion, and I assumed that from context it would be obvious that it was an attempt to mess up Spit's "intimidating silence" ego act by pretending to do the opposite of being scared, not any sort of actual flirting. But I can see how, from a look back at some of the beings /quest/ has flirted with unironically, it might not actually have been obvious.
No. 109682 ID: 79a07e

Pretty much what >>109677 said. We're not being flirty because they're actually hot, we're being flirty because we're MOCKING their attempts at being intimidating. It's defiant blitheness in the face of the enemy. They want us to be afraid? We're going to be the EXACT OPPOSITE, just to mess with them.
No. 109684 ID: 79a07e

Furthermore, /quest/ has a thing where we're defend friends and people we like to the death (not to mention if they're our waifu like Wretch is we'll follow to the ends of the earth) but our enemies will just get insults, scorn, and general attempts at total annihilation.

And spite. We really really like doing things for spite if we don't like you.
No. 109685 ID: b7883c

>We wanted to fuck with Spit because Spit is a bad person. Why was this impossible to get across?
I think the issue is that us flirting ironically out of spite is in practice almost identical to us flirting genuinely. Doing the almost exact same behavior with completely different meanings in different contexts can get confusing when seen out of context.
No. 109686 ID: 79a07e

Fair. I think it'd come down to a tonal difference, which over text is...obviously impossibly hard. I think maybe we could've done with some slightly better wording. Still, though. I would've thought personally that considering our discussion about psyching her out, we'd have gotten our intention across- but like you said. Context in text is hard.
No. 109689 ID: 9876c4

I didn't make the quest so I don't get a vote, but I like this discussion thread, because it already has all our silly art in it.

Plans for the next thread:

Upscale alchemy operation. Replace the dinky herb garden and single tree with a massive vault of botany. Try fertilizer and other such things to see if we can improve our operation. Hydroponics should give us higher yields faster, but we should experiment and compare both methods to see if there are any complications. Get bees for the trees. Maybe expand to other magical plants to see if we can't get some ironskin or swiftness potions.

Test if the Eastwood mask increases the effectiveness of the potions.

Try making an inverted Spit mask to act as an anesthetic.

Make more copies of all of the masks except Spit's. We'll probably only use the Miller and Eastwood masks, but just having the others won't hurt. Also make extra wands and hats so that we can use all the cats' abilities at once.

Test what Jasper's wand and hat powers are.

Fortify the base: traps, armor, locks, shuttered embrasures, more horrors, etc.

Finish testing wand and hat powers, keep anesthetics and potions close by. Test range, line of sight, and interactivity between powers.

We should ask someone how the tcp defection system works. What does it take for a tcp to count as officially defected, do they just have to want it? What side do they count as being on: no side, their own side? Can they be adopted by another god, and, if so, does this bypass the 5 tcp per god limit? Can defected cats survive the end of the game? Can you trade cats by telling them to defect to another side? If your tcp defects are you able to spawn a replacement?

I'd also like to become more unified strategically with our allies, they all seem to be pretty much doing their own things at the moment and that's less than ideal. We should all be using the same level of technology and force, so that no one pushes it too far and starts an arms race, and no one shoots themselves in the foot by holding back too much. We should make sure that all of our bases are equally outfitted with facilities, meaning they all create their own alchemy setups, we fortify our bases to the same level, and we copy good ideas from each other. We should also discuss with the others what tcps they plan on making. Food, creature, body, and form types are all consistently good as long as you don't pick something completely stupid, but weapon types are nearly useless without magic enhancing their powers, we should encourage the former and discourage the latter. We also have the advantage of being from Earth, meaning we have access to a bunch of potentially powerful tcp ideas which we should share with them. Container and machine types could be great, but they require planning and coordination to be useful, so we should talk with the others about maybe scheming something along those lines. Our communicator doesn't have a group call function, but we might be able to work around that by having the others stay in the same physical room (this has the added bonus of keeping Spit from trying anything), or by doing something tricky with calling multiple people at once. We should have our tcps do joint training exercises to build camaraderie, and give our cats time to share all the stuff we taught them as preparation for the UNHALLOWED SANCTUARY with the others.

We could probably end this whole thing pretty quickly by getting another god to create a DEICIDE tcp and teach it MORTALITY, JUSTICE, DUTY, SACRIFICE, and SPIT (we would also probably want to lie to it and downplay the risk involved in using its power, maybe even convince it there's an afterlife or something; it's scummy, but one life is easily worth it to save all those lives Spit would take). Of course, I doubt we could actually convince any of our allies to go through with this, they'd argue that the risk of the plan backfiring is too great, and they'd be right, given that narrative convention would demand that it backfire in order to avoid an anticlimax unless we tried the plan at the absolute last second,, but we might be able to convince them to do it as a last resort.

We might want to give our cats bodycams so that we can see what happens in the unhallowed sanctuary. We should install an airport security style checkpoint at the entrance to the sanctuary to prevent Spit from doing the same.

>We might want to give our cats bodycams so that we can see what happens in the unhallowed sanctuary
I like this idea.
No. 110852 ID: db0da2

We should make a black hole type. It would be container type, meaning its ability would be voluntary and free of cost AFAIK, so we wouldn't have to worry about accidentally sucking up the world, but could still instakill enemies and absorb our way past fortifications.
No. 110853 ID: 15a025

The bodycam sounds like a good idea. I feel Spit would just do the same in response though. Possibly even finding a way to abuse it.

This is a good idea.
No. 110859 ID: db0da2

We should also get someone to make a sniper type, or something else long-ranged to fill that gap in our team composition. I prefer sniper type to sniper rifle type. It would get identity synergy with sniper rifles and wouldn't lose health every time it attacks. It would also be more versatile, given that it would have a larger health pool and abilities relating not just to attacking, but to (to quote Wikipedia):
>detection, stalking, and target range estimation methods, camouflage, field craft, infiltration, special reconnaissance and observation, surveillance and target acquisition.
A sniper type would be especially potent against Spit, given that her base is in the middle of a wide open desert with no cover.

http://homebrewdeviants.tumblr.com/post/159961476886/spring-2017-morbit-mutation-drive here's the link for it, feel free to check out all the rewards (including a shot at getting your very own canon morbit god, shhhh) and share with your friends.

yall rock, seriously. keep on discussing here and we'll have the new thread up soon.

Um, is that the right paypal link? The name doesn't come up as Roman Mortis.

The icon is the same as Roman's twitter, at least.

Unfortunately for both of us we have to use our old names for PayPal until we get our names legally changed.

So how will mutation choices and other non-commission donation bonuses be handled? Via email?
