If Titania asks how she died in the bad end timeline, Big Rose avoids the question, gives a fairly obvious lie about not seeing, or flat out refuses to answer and gets very visibly upset for reasons you know. Does Titania push?

Titania finds out, possibly thanks to Leo. How worried would she be?

How does Chiu feel about cute things? How about Carmine's attempts to get her to wear cute things?

<Aegis> She's just annoyed the faculty keeps yelling at her for (REDACTED) in class when she's bored

Does Chiu at least try to be discrete?

Yet more questions, how bothersome.

Yet more temptation to limit any further attempts at a worldbuild from you to bronze age technology.

Quote
What is the most powerful non-thermobaric chemical explosive that is allowed for common use (example: HE rounds), wether in actual form or Dust equivalent?

Depends on application.

Quote
Are jet turbines/engines which use electric arcs as a heat source instead of fuel or Dust too high-tech? If yes, does that mean that the "extremely low-tech only" previously mentioned for aircraft engines basically stands for "fans of whatever type only"?

Let me put it in a way you can get through your thick fucking skull:

You can use dust, or you can use a fucking hang glider.

Quote
What is the allowed use of weapons akin to Penny's Spinning Swords Beam Attack? If allowed (even if only marginally), would they have to directly consume Dust?

Not allowed on Penny's small scale without dickery, and you have been told repeatedly  that no you may not have high non-dust technology so what the fuck do you THINK the answer to "would they have to directly consume Dust" would be, you fucking moron?

Quote
What about regenerating organs by procedures such as 3D printing, applying powdered extracellular matrix, etc.?

How you phrase it? No.

Quote
While I'm at it, what would be a general limit on biotech?

Depends how you go about it, and the technology base the worldbuild is descended from.

Quote
In terms of medical robots, would a drone with an AI 'capable of pretty much only stopping excessive bleeding, internal or external', be acceptable? Or is that still beyond the realm of the CCT AI?

You're not getting medical robots.

Quote
How about quantum encryption, where the encryption and decryption keys are series of quantum objects? (Of course, this means that the encryption and decryption keys must be physically delivered, but makes attempts at interception mildly useless)

Not only no. Not only hell no. Full on FUCK OFF.

You're not getting your non-dust technology powerhouse no matter how you fucking wiggle. Keep wasting my fucking time, and we'll do that bronze age thing.


When I talk about Manned Bi-Pedal Vehicles, I'm not talking about Mechs like the Paladins, but rather weapon platforms like the Sentinels from Warhammer 40K or the ATSTs from Star Wars. From the looks of their designs, they'd be relatively easy to make when comparing them to the Paladins.

On the same topic, would something like the D-Walker from MGS5 be allowed?

There's no hard, "no bipedal robots" but you'll be under very close scrutiny if you're not Atlas.

Limit for materials technology excluding hardlight in Remnant? For example: carbyne, graphene, nanomaterials?

No solid limit, but you're going to be under intense scrutiny. Also, Nathan's warning about bronze age technology applies to you, too.

Lil Rose consistently refuses to call Merletta "Ms Yoru" or anything similar. Wat do?

Big Rose mocks Merletta insisting on being called "Ms Yoru" or anything similar. Wat do?

Leonius calls Merletta "Ms Yoru" but it sounds sarcastic, and (for the sake of question) two of his Heralds have kicked her ass in the past. Wat do?

Soljia seems to be trying to call Merletta "Ms Yoru" but consistently fails due to her language issues. Wat do?

Ayla calls Merletta "Uroy Sm" and speaks all of her sentences where she addresses her backwards. The cyborg seems incredibly amused whenever she does this. Wat do?

Carmine calls Merletta "Ms Yoru" and it's genuine, she's happy and helpful, but somehow finds Merletta's blueprints and makes copies. Modified copies. Adorable copies. And gives them to Merletta, claiming they're improved versions, and she did it for her. Wat do?

How badly would Titania take hearing about the old timeline? Specifically, how would she respond to finding out she was, by following the rules closely and assuming the best of a very promising, if irresponsible, student, responsible for Fayza doing some of her horrible, horrible shit?

Would your characters, if they find out about the bad end timeline, be curious how they died?

Malina gets a note from a secret admirer. Wat do?

How would Malina react to seeing a her, with different weapons and appearance, and a different Manticore, being a cold, angry, and competitive Good Kitty?

Does the Malina of this timeline still love spiced maize? Would she still wiggle her lower body and call herself a stinger butt for it?

Nebu is given business cards by SET, because given her inability to keep a low profile she might as well have something nice. However, someone had hacked the print job and made them read, "Nebu Nekhbet, Bull Dyke with a Bob Cut" instead of her official job title within SET. Wat do?

Phi and Rho get their data components hacked, and find themselves constantly singing the Meow Mix jingle. How badly do they, and their operators, respond?

How resistant would Isabelle be to being dressed up in a cute outfit by Carmine? How about after Cutepocalypse?

Same question for Vivian and Lyssa.

How offended would Isabelle be if someone hacked her scroll so her ringtone and all of her notification sounds were "Cat loves food, yeah yeah yeah yeah, cat loves food yeah yeah" at full volume?

Does Isabelle love food, yeah yeah yeah yeah?

Your characters, including Isabelle, see a black cat with blue eyes walking around campus with a collar. The name tag says "Isabelle" - Wat do?

How does Zwei feel about his Cutepocalypse costume, and everything it entails?

Carmine comes up to Lucina, possibly a long time after Cutepocalypse, and says she has a costume for Isabelle. And wants help getting her to put it on. She shows Lucina an adorable "kitty princess" outfit, thankfully lacking any kind of tail accessory, and asks if Lucina is in. Wat do?

What's the Lord of Nevermore's favorite food?

High on the list are Affuchse, a kind of monkey-fox creature native to Lacansia. They have big ears, big eyes, glorious fluffy prehensile tails, and full coats to deal with the constant moisture of central Lacansia's rainforest and the nightly cold snaps. Carmine has very fond memories of watching a trupp of affuchse playing while she was out with Aurelio catching up on Huntress training to attend Beacon. She is not yet aware of Big Rose's familiars, Nick and Dell.

"They talk at you with their little chitters! They play an' 'ave fun! They're brightly colored, excited little children, and when you 'ave an 'ole trupp of 'em playin' over your head... it's just 'ard not to smile, y'know?"

Cats are always a contender, particularly a long-haired variety from Atlas bred to handle the cold.

"Look! Look at this thing! Look at it's little smooshed face amidst all that floof an' it's fat little tail! It's adorable!"

You can never go wrong with bright colors and singing, so birds, particularly brightly colored songbirds, rank high on the list.

"Chirp! Tweet-tweet! ... Squawk?" Squawk! "It's a squawker! "Eeee-hee-hee..."

...through which we must pass if we are to become stronger.

Not necessarily.

I see how that particular issue would create a whole host of problems; have you guys considered implementing a dice-rolling system like what D&D has?

We had. We've considered pseudorandom number based systems. We've considered resource-based systems. We've considered hybrid systems. We've considered point-buy diceless systems.

It's safe to say we've weighed all the options on the RPG, and a combat system has been turned down each time.

HOWEVER...

The whole point of setting the site up like this is that it's incredibly expandable. So a spinoff with a point-buy system could find a home here.

Also, Vox, Umbra's showed me a few people's failed attempts at creating OP characters, and I have to say, I'm a great fan of your work.

Everyone likes seeing people get thrown to the lions.

That begs the question: do we actually have a formal combat system, or is it straight-up all fluff, all description?

As the second-longest serving active staff member, and longest serving active administrator, I'd like you to know that it's been discussed, at length, by the staff... and down that road lies naught but pain, hardship, and sorrow...

How would Nebu feel about being referred to as, "the bull dyke with the bowl cut" by someone at the facility the DUATs are going to be at?

I'm not new to the site

Your history does not work in your fucking favor, you retard.

You're here because I decided to give EVERYONE on the ban list a second chance.
