“Heads up Dan!”

“Not today punk.”
>you say in your best dirty Dirty Hary growl as you kick the shadow up into the air like a hacky sack.
“Say high to the fans in the cheap seats for me!”
>Your keyblade glows and a rush of energy flows through you as your weapon connects with the heartless’ bulbous head.
>A loud crack rings out in the junkyard like a gunshot as the little heartless hurtles through the air and scores a direct hit center mass of the hulking rubber suited monstrosity.
>The shadow explodes on contact in a burst of smoke as the toxic trooper staggers back bracing itself with its oversized clawed hand.
>As its comrade explodes the last shadows eyes flash as it leaps at Spike, determined to bring the little dragon down.
>Its claws hit home but instead of dodging the little dragon takes it in the chest and grabs the shadow by its limp spindly wrist.
>”You aren’t getting away from me that easily.”
>Spike growls as the claws dig into his scales and in response he draws back his fist and staves in the heartless’ head.
>”Just one to go!”
>Spike shouts as he looks to Dan squaring off with the toxic trooper.
>”He’s all mine.”
>Dan snarls venom dripping from his voice as he clenches his wrench with both hands and sends the lump of metal crashing into the heartless’ exposed face.
>The force of the blow sends the staggered monster crashing to the ground where it shakes and seizes for a few seconds before its body is consumed from within by a brilliant light that bursts out and flies off into the sky as the heartless vanishes.

>”Now let’s see if this climb is going to be a total wash.”
>Dan grunts as he pries open the engine compartment.
>He shouts as he reaches in and fiddles with the inner workings of the van before he pulls out a complicated looking piece of machinery.
>”Gentlemen we’ve found our power supply.”
>He says with a grin as he slips the power plant into his pack and grabs one of the heavy yellow canister scattered around the clearing.
>”Grab a canister; we’ll drop em off as we pass the garage on the way to the next site.”
>He grunts as the two of you pick up canisters of your own and follow him down the hill back to the station.
>One uneventful trip later and the three of you are stacking your fresh swag in a corner at the back of the garage.
>”Okay so, we’ve got a couple more places we can try before we need to resort to the crane.”
>Dan says as he pulls out a rough hand drawn map.
>”We have an option to the east and the south of here.”
>Dan says as he points to a couple of crude drawings nearby what looks to be the gas station.
>”Now I recommend we hit the one to the south, It’s a little bit more of a walk but the spot in the east is the closest to the crane so we might see heavier heartless activity there than usual.”
>Dan rubs his goatee in thought as he looks at the map.
>”Any thoughts guys?”

>Where do you want to head next? Feel free to ask questions of Dan before making a choice.

Anonymous 2017-02-19 01:27:31 No.29513252
I don't think we'd really decided on any questions yet. Personally, I vote for the south, cover all of our bases before we get to the crane. That's feeling like a story area.

Do we want to have dan do something with that gem? He did say he thought he could do something with it. And do we still want to attempt to draw away heartless?

I would like to repeat my suggestion towards using the Keyblade as a distraction to lure some of the Heartless to the East away, when we get there.

Obviously we're going to the South first.

Anonymous 2017-02-19 01:54:39 No.29513454
Agree on taking the route to the South, personally I'm completionist enough that even if we get what we want from the other sites, I'm going to want us to at least scope out the Crane and see if it's worth going.

I feel nervous about letting the Keyblade out of our sight, but it might be worth a shot.

Oh yeah, we should have Dan look at that since we've got a spare minute. At least get his assessment on it and how long he'd need to work with it, if nothing else.

Honestly, I disagree. I mean even if we draw away the Heartless by leaving the keyblade somewhere away from where the heavy Heartless activity is going we what? Get them to go somewhere else, circle around (presuming the keyblade doesn't dissipate upon getting a certain distance away from us) and then have a fight? When the Heartless will come running and arrive halfway through?

I'll be honest, I'm not seeing the strategy to this plan.

Anonymous 2017-02-19 04:22:59 No.29514513

Seeing as magic is our main method of attack, I feel like learning more as fast as possible is a good idea.

Anonymous 2017-02-19 04:31:16 No.29514561
I mean, assuming there's like 10 Heartless at the Crane, using the Keyblade to lure even 3 away means that we could divide and conquer if wading through sheer numbers is a poor idea.

That's why I'm only suggesting it. I just can't help but think that the fact that the Keyblade lures Heartless can be used as an advantage in some way.

Anonymous 2017-02-19 04:36:02 No.29514589
You see, what I'm worried about is time sensitivity. I'm worried that taking the time to set this up, circle around and then confront the Heartless heavy area. That ultimately the risks or loses associated with this plan are much less than risking Spike dropping the lance again or spending more MP on multiple Thunders in a row. We have AOE attacks in this exact event. It might be better if we could lure the Heartless into a trap of some kind, which would kill them upon being attracted by the keyblade, but again, time sensitivity.

The Heap sounds like the Compton of these many worlds and it should be swiftly exited.

Anonymous 2017-02-19 04:50:06 No.29514674
That's a fair point. Still, I'm gonna keep that idea on the back burner. At least until we find out more about the Keyblade's capabilities.

welp, poor fat humans and cute robots

Not much to re-equip for that situation, and barricaes are useless against shadows, maybe cast the Thunder Bulwark preemptively on both us and Spike (how long it lasts and how much it costs btw?). We should search around for anything useful, and probably flammable, for us and Spike to use in fight too. Scan?

I think if we can knock some cars onto the open passages to this clearing, that would be helpful. We could delay bigger heartless trying to come through and force smaller ones to sink into the ground and come after us, so we know where they're coming from.

Anonymous 2017-02-19 16:58:07 No.29517740
Man, coming up with combo attacks for Dan is hard, mostly because Dan is an inarticulate ball of rage in terms of fighting. That said, maybe Dan throws his wrench at an enemy, it ricochets to us, and we rebound it back to him off of the enemy while electrifying it? It'd probably be complicated, though, that's a lot of variables.

Does the ship have anything in the way of defenses, or is it all trashed? We might be able to power them for a second or two, given a good arcana roll. Or maybe there's some more conventional defenses laying around, like >>29517095 and >>29516293 said. Can heartless be deterred by light? I assumed not, but if they can that's worth a shot too, see if we can find anything that'll blast a floodlight on them. At very least it could be useful for blinding them.

All depends on what's around, unless of course we want to try a hand at spellcrafting an ability that can act as a trap.

Here's the map as it stands right now. the circle is the object on the ceiling of the bridge and the jagged line is where the ceiling juts out past the trash wall it's embedded in. Dan is back near the command console whereas you and spike are milling about looking for supplies.

An investigation roll allows you to uncover several quick discharge capacitors out in the nearby wreckage along with some chunks of hull that could be used to erect barricades or other forms of cover. You also find plenty of high strength cable that could be used for tripwires or snares. You also find what looks to be a cracked fuel cell that would probably explode pretty good if overloaded.

Anonymous 2017-02-20 00:04:46 No.29520728
Sounds like we could use the cable with the discharge capacitators to make some shock traps/snares.

We could utilize the hull chunks to make chokepoints for the non-Shadows. Perhaps set the shock traps in the gaps. The fuel cell looks to be our free AoE that shouldn't backfire as bad as the Scream Canister did. Perhaps we could keep it somewhat close and have someone toss it while we light it up?

Let's go with this, but I would propose switching the order.

1st Defense: Bomb
2nd Defense: Tripwires
3rd Defense: Barriers

Take out the maximum amount of heartless first with bomb, fight them off from a distance as the hit electrified tripwires, and then retreat behind barriers to hold the line with Spike, until either they realize the siege isn't worth it or we can skedaddle with the part.

Anonymous 2017-02-20 01:48:08 No.29521596
I like this plan, though I have another question: how fast can we recall our keyblade and then use it? If we can get it back and then cast with it in the same turn, this might be a good time to try the baiting strategy by putting the blade on top of the explosive trap.

Anonymous 2017-02-20 01:58:31 No.29521746
I can see that, but the issue is we need the keyblade to cast magic, so not having it on us could be dangerous.

Are any of those chunks of hull small/light enough to be usable as a shield or as armor?

If we're setting up barricades, it might be a good idea to set up some protection for Dan.

I really like the idea of using the barricades to make bottlenecks and generally limit their mobility. Spike's charge attack goes in a straight line, so we can make "hallways" to take advantage of that. Maybe we can even set up higher ground so that Anon can safely spam Thunder and keep an eye on the battle.
Let's go tower defense on this.

That said, I get the feeling that shadows won't give a shit about the barricades and will simply sneak across them, so I propose that we set most of our tripwires near Dan to defend him from anything that may slip through Spike and Anon.

Meta-Yen Sid 2017-02-20 04:17:40 No.29522768
Some are small enough to be used as a shield but you don't have any way of reliably setting up something to hold it with.

I should point out on this tower defense strategy those capacitors will not only electrify trip wires, if you set them out in the field and drop a targeted thunderbolt on them then they will discharge electricity in a 15 foot radius around them allowing you to effectively drop a thunder at distant locations instead of just directly on top of Anon.

Anonymous 2017-02-20 04:23:24 No.29522816
Nah, in a defense scenario like this, you really want to maintain a fair amount of maneuverability / mobility, especially with enemies who can basically tunnel under most stationary defenses. The problem with the Tower Defense strategy you've got going on is that there's little to no way to keep the Heartless on a track or prevent them from bypassing the "sentries" comprised of us, Spike, and the tripwires.

Anonymous 2017-02-20 04:43:14 No.29522979
Ah, right. Do we have the tools to be able to fashion a strap out of the cable we found?

It could help manage the Hearless that can't tunnel through. But you have a point, if most of the Heartless are shadows like last time then we would be fucked.

For what it's worth, I think >>29521494 is a pretty solid plan.

Meta-Yen Sid 2017-02-20 04:48:27 No.29523032

Yen, would we be able to tell or make an educated guess as to the range this bomb has? Because if the range is large enough, we may want to ignite now. If it's only like 10 feet for range, probably not.

Having just watched fucking Wall-e, I'm a little mad I didn't respond sooner about AUTO probably still being around.

Much nastier and worse small problems comes first. Especially with two guys that probably have range attacks and can't trip over vires and traps, floating around them

Anonymous 2017-02-20 17:43:26 No.29525998
First, I'd like to point out that this is "Wave 1", and while we have no guarantee that there will be others, we should be cautious about blowing all of our traps on the first wave unless we're getting good value from them. Note: I end every Final Fantasy with a billion Elixirs by following his logic, so take that into consideration.

Second ,I really REALLY want to thrust our keyblade deep into the delicate exposed circuitry of that EVE and overload it with electricity.

Third, if we're going to venture beyond the barricades we set up, I'd say we shouldn't go too far beyond the left-hand gap, as most of these guys are melee and probably can't close the distance to us and attack in one turn. Left gets us close enough to probably hit all three of the front wires next turn, and hopefully draws them away from Spike's side so he can set up a good angle for his charge.

Yo Yen, do we get to know the initiative now or do we find the order out on first turn? I've seen both done, just wondering which setup we're going with.

Even if we can't shut him down, maybe we can reason with him long enough to buy Dan some time to work? Ask him to reboot in safe mode, return manual control, or calculate the final digit of pi. Maybe we can trap him in a logic loop by shouting paradoxes at him. If nothing else, it'll be entertaining.

Anonymous 2017-02-20 17:52:56 No.29526042
One thing we could do, if/when AUTO comes back down to scan, is throw/jam our keyblade in between some of his parts so that it'll get stuck on the ceiling once he tries to retreat and stop him

That is, of course, assuming he can't exert enough force to damage our keyblade. I know Yen said it could take a lot of punishment but you know.

Anonymous 2017-02-20 23:28:08 No.29528168
Well, yeah, he tried to do "something directly" already and failed

So, what exactly is our plan? Wait for next waves or more heartless before blowing up bomb (and try to learn it's range), go to barricades and maybe even further, wait for heartless to come closer to stumble upon first row of tripwires and\or line up perectly for Spike's charges and our swings, scan everything to get to AUTO sooner my bet he is going to come out every time to spawn next waves and be vulnerable at these moments or try to trick him (yeah, right), probably tell Dan to work faster, anything else?

Anonymous 2017-02-20 23:48:11 No.29528317
So what's our range on movement and spellcasting?

As of right now, we can reach the first tripwire by moving 15 feet. first diagonally and then directly and then we are out of the barricade. The very first heartless are 30ft away from that same spot.

Do you guys think we should move out of the barricade so we have better access to the tripwires that we may electrify and the bomb to set it off whenever we want? We can retreat behind the barricade when the shit gets too near the fan.

If we activate the tripwires do they still do an aoe burst when we hit them?

Anonymous 2017-02-21 03:24:34 No.29529811
Yen said lightning has a 20ft (4 squares) range when used a la KH1. We'd have to move outside the barrier to hit all three of the closest wires in that way; I'm assuming from the way it was described that we can electrocute them and have it damage anything caught in the wire, right? I'm understanding that correctly I think.

We could try a horizontal lightning bolt, but it would probably be harder to control the longer the range we tried to use it at. I'm fine waiting to see what range the enemy has before we attack, to conserve mana, but we probably have enough juice to try pegging a Soldier from range. Other than that, I don't think we can get close enough to attack without getting mobbed in response.

We can probably trust that the Soldiers and EVEs are going to be at least slowed down by the barricades, but remember that the Shadows could slide right under the trash in the last battle. Just sayin', we shouldn't count the fortress impenetrable just yet.

with them wired up like this it's not a particularly large burst but yes anything standing within five feet of a capacitor gets a jolt when you activate a line.

So, I think if we run, we're going to incur attacks of opportunity, no? Might be in our best interest to attack first, magic or not. I know we're generally immune from our own magic, but are we immune from the wires if they're powered by our magic?

Thunder will hit 4 of the 6 enemies we can see, I'd say that's excellent damage economy. Spike is unfortunately bottom of initiative order, so he won't be able to assist us in getting out of our bind too much this turn.

Careful of Elixir Syndrome, but yeah, it's pretty early in what could be a long fight or string of fights. Even without the charge, Spike had some good damage on that lance, let's have him smack down the Soldier on our right and maybe open the way for an escape next turn, if between the two of us we can get it gone.

Unfortunately since your tripwires are machines you are subject to damage of you get caught in them. That said your save to get over them is much easier than the Heartless'.

Do you or Spike want to make a persuasion check on Auto? You can do it as a bonus action if you're interested in trying to talk him down or recruit him. If you're interested let me know what you want to say to try and persuade him.

I just had an idea.

We could keep playing off the Mine Hazard theme with our future spells, here's an idea: once we learn how to cast Fire, we can find a way to shape it into a ring and cast it around an enemy, and then detonate It remotely so It takes out any enemies around our target too. I can only assume the brunt of the damage would go to the middle target, but still could be useful for crowd control. Pic related

Also, we gotta learn how to combine Blade and bulwark/shroud to cast Blade barrier

Anonymous 2017-02-22 14:31:50 No.29538039
I could see that being really useful. Maybe have it be a ranged attack with relatively low initial damage, but it marks them for X turns, and if we kill it in that time, the mark explodes for AoE damage? That way other allies could trigger it too. Higher levels of the spell could even chain the effect, so killing something with the AoE damage causes them to emit AoE damage too.

Anonymous 2017-02-22 15:54:02 No.29538277

I kinda pictured it as a timebomb of sorts, we just set it and then it blows on its own but the mark idea is neat.

We could use it with all three elements for different effects too. A frost nova bomb with blizzard to maybe freeze heartless would be nice

Looking at this, considering how we're the only thing standing between the Soldiers/Shadows and Dan, firing off another Thunder seems the best course of action.

If we can heal ourselves with the Aspirin as well, then I'd like to do that too.

Anonymous 2017-02-22 18:44:02 No.29539075
How much does a Full Swing do in terms of damage? And do we have to choose between Aspirin and attacking? Also, which EVE and Soldier are the most damaged? Because the one directly to our north is set up to take some serious damage from the capacitors if we hit them with another thunder.

Yen, can Spike take a 5-foot step without penalty? Because he could mow down 3 in a row if they don't move this turn, or he somehow moves before them. Might be better if we could get input on Spike's actions after the Heartless act rather than before, whatever plans we make with him can easily be outdated by the time his turn rolls around.

"To our knowledge, we're the only living things on this planet. If the ship's inhabitants are alive, they sure as shit aren't here. So I have a proposal for you: would you be willing to accept one of us as your acting captain while all other registered personnel are unavailable? We need a guidance system, and you need a crew."

Thoughts on saying something along these lines to AUTO, guys?

Anonymous 2017-02-22 18:52:19 No.29539119
We definitely need to talk him down or we're going to get another wave of these assholes. Let's try agreeing with Auto. Something along the lines

"We're looking for people that's why we need some of these parts. We can take you with us and look for your passengers together. That's the only way you'll ever find them. If you kill us then you'll be left to rust here and NEVER fulfill your directive."

I imagine he'll want some reassurances after that, but it's a good intro. We can offer to fix his sensors and promise to give back whatever parts we took once his passengers are found. We may need to repeat that 'working with us is the ONLY way to achieve your directive' more than once to drive that point home. He should value that more highly than a minor subroutine devoted to keeping the bridge free of unauthorized people.

I'll do a break mid turn for spike.

Full swing does the same damage as a normal attack it just lets you hit all the enemies in front of you at once.

Yes spike can five foot step without penalty.

You will unfortunately need to choose between healing and attacking with the aspirin. Unlike potions you must take it yourself it can't be used on you by a party member.

The damaged Eve is the eastern one. I forget which soldier is the most damaged at the moment though.

The next turn I'm thinking of is a combination of what many other people have said, however this does assume that we can use aspirin and attack in the same turn.

First; Pop some Aspirin
Second: Have Spike five-foot step northeast (doesn't provoke attacks of opportunity) and charge those three Heartless that are in a line.
Third; have Anon Home Run that other Heartless into the very damaged (2 Health) EVE bot.
Fourth; Convince Auto to come with us via the fact that the only way he will find his passengers is to come with the group and accept us (Anon) as acting Captain. >>29539075 Has a good quote about being active captain. Speaking in precise terms Auto can understand is likely going to be important.

This relies a bit on Spike's charge, and he doesn't go until after the heartless. Hence why >>29539075 requested input at Spike's turn instead of Anon's, I think. Anon can probably survive a couple more hits as long as he's not swarmed (and finds cover from the EVEs), so I'm still down for trying to homerun a twofer, and talking is a bonus action, so no complaints there.

Someone was asking earlier how distance was determined for home run derby.

Well basically home run derby trades damaged rolled for distance traveled. the magically enhanced version negates that trade. it's simply you travel distance equal to damage done.

The specifics depends on size category.
Shadows, elemental heartless and other small heartless are 10 feet per 1 point of damage.

Medium heartless like soldiers and bandits are 5 feet per damage

large heartless like large bodies and fat bandits travel on a one to one ratio. one foot per damage done.

I would say that we should take some aspirin and go finish east zone before calling it a day. We did south zone way too well (Twilight and Pinkie is surely proud of us) with just Spike and Anon, but Dan is fresh and new active party member again. Healing Aspirin works with per-day-per-character restriction, so if east baddies will be too harsh on us (and they surely will), better have a full night rest and fully restocked healing items before trip to even harder crane

why I have a feeling after that Axiom fight that Monsters Inc. fight was planned much harder? And that we were just way too lucky to buff monster with canisters only once? How scary "sub-boss" would look after all 5 canisters triggered?

Thunder (with the half-MP bonus from going magic stick mode) costs 8mp,and we have 46, so that's 5 casts plus a little to maybe put towards empowered keyblade moves. Do we recover all our MP during a long rest, or is it recovered like HP where we have a dice that determines replenishing rate? That'd be my limiting factor, since Aspirin will clear up our HP issues from this fight.

I feel like whatever benefits we get from quitting now will be offset by the fact that more heartless will have wandered to the east site.

More elements mean more creativity when it comes to using our spells, though I would definitely like to get to the end of the Bulwark section before starting on anything else. Damage reduction is something our scrawny ass could definitely use more of.

Acknowledged, but even if we don't HAVE to go to the Crane, we're probably going to at least try to scout it out to see whether there are any pieces there worth the effort of clearing it out to get.

That's what >>29543478 is saying, our whole point of going to the Axiom, getting the Scream Canisters, and now going to the Eastern site, all that was to avoid the Crane. Whether it all winds up being for naught because some essential piece we need to launch is at the Crane remains to be seen; that's how most JRPGs go, but nothing says Yen has to follow that convention.

You know, something just occurred to me: do our spells allow for friendly fire? If not, we could cast Ring spells (once we figure them out) on allies just as well as enemies and give Spike the ability to charge in and Aloha Snackbar them with our spell. Even if they do, dragonbro's fire immune so we could still cast the fire variant on him without penalty.

Come to think of it, that logic should make Shroud our next priority, we can give him a deterrent for enemies to attack him without occupying his hand with a Bulwark.

Anonymous 2017-02-23 19:56:25 No.29545447
That's a good point, but we'd have to learn Fire in order to do that well.

Meta-Yen Sid 2017-02-23 20:26:46 No.29545655
Raw elemental spells with large aoe effects don't tend to have friendly fire. The magic knows your intent so you'll find the random thunderbolts from your thunder spells mysteriously missing your friends. Tighter aoe effects that you have to aim don't have the same luxury to just mysteriously miss an ally outright. But you will find ally's have an easier time getting out of the way and can often save for 0 damage as opposed to half. The magic is an extension of your will so if you aren't trying to hurt them the magic is going to try to not hurt them too.

Spellcrafted effects are a whole new ball of wax though. The act of forcing wild magic into that regimented form separates it from its natural state as an extension of your will. It's like programming a computer. If you tell it to explode on contact it will, regardless of who it makes contact with or who might be caught in the explosion. as such friendly fire is something you're going to need to consider when it comes to spellcrafting.

Its more a convergent evolution than directly inspired by bravely second. I honestly wanted to use a different name for the system but I got lazy with it and ended up going with spell crafting because it was the most straight forward.

Ultima weapon tends to be pretty visually similar from game to game so probably pretty close to kh1's ultima weapon with our wayfinder's question mark worked in. Maybe a pale green to white gradient on the color with gold accents and filigree.

That said it's probably a little early for an ultima weapon. Seeing it now would almost feel like a spoiler imo.

We could get around it by learning Reflect, if that's a spell in this game. Just cast Reflect on them and (assuming it lasts 'til next turn) drop a Firaga on them afterwards. Doesn't confer elements if it works as it does in KH2, but I'm sure with a little spellcrafting we could modify it to do elemental damage.

It'd give us a chance to see what Fallen Hero will do, but understand that those Shadows have a high chance of sinking in the first turn, and it might be wise to take at least one of them out this turn.

I don't think variable initiative would really slow me down. My chief concern is hindering your ability to strategize.

Anonymous 2017-02-25 05:20:29 No.29555996

speaking of variable initiative what ever happened to that stance combat system? it seems like we've just kind of abandoned it in favor of full control at all times.

Anonymous 2017-02-25 05:38:34 No.29556089
It's still there, and we can do that if we want as far as I can tell. We've used it for the Shattered Mirror and Cinder Wolf fights, but not too terribly recent.

Perhaps full control became more popular due to the maps?

Anonymous 2017-02-25 05:46:43 No.29556136
I honestly think it's mostly because the more granular full control is just more engaging

So the Cyclops attack dealt 10 damage to Anon and Dan. Fucking yikes.

Since we're gonna rest, I see no reason to be anything but liberal with our Thunder use. Spike should make his way behind the Fallen Hero for a flank atack. Dan should either finish off the Soldiers we potentially miss, or make some distance between us, since that laser's dynamite.

Anonymous 2017-02-25 16:03:57 No.29558014
Hmm. First, I have to wonder what the rules are for him gaining charges of his laser eyes: it definitely seems to be a retribution thing, but is it only for shadows or soldiers as well? Maybe the soldiers do something else, like buff his strength? Also, he only has two eyes, can he have more than two charges built up? This could be a crazy fight if we're not careful.

First, since we didn't think to last round, let's get the lay of the land with an investigation check. The real question though is whether we want to risk attacks of opportunity leaving the Soldiers to go smack down the Hero, or whether we destroy the soldiers and risk what happens as a result of that. I think we along with Spike should focus down the Hero while Dan weakens the Soldier that's at about half, and hope we can combo it out of existence before the Shadows pop up again.

We're actually in a good position for it, so I'm totally down for >>29557469. But, y'know, with swords. Might as well add some lightning damage to it too, we've certainly got the MP to spare. Is that still a double lariat?

All this talk about catchphrases makes me wonder if we should also think up of some general ones to say whenever we do something cool or non elemental/high level magic.

I recall that Sora shouting "LIGHT!" and "GIVE ME STRENGTH" and then proceeding to go into a drive form or using a flashy combo finisher like pic related was weirdly hype, like he was literally tapping into the raw force of light to fuck shit up like Ansem and Riku did with DARKNESS

Don't forget that we picked JUSTICE as one of our answers at the beginning, so a phrase with that could be cool, too.

As Dan, do you think we could see any old mattresses, loose house insulation, something that might break Anon's fall and direct him to it.

On the other hand if that doesn't work, I think Anon might have an idea just about as bright as these previous ones. Freefall right towards the Fallen Hero, grab his cape, and use that swing around and cancel our momentum / direct it onto him. Thus we should be able to fall safely and throw the fallen hero off balance with the equivalent force of an autist turning him 120 mph. It would be stupid and dangerous (in fact if we have any inspiration, I would suggest using it to make sure we don't fail whatever roll necessary to grab the Fallen Hero's cape).

I was thinking we summon the keyblade and use it to raido za lightning. Use a thunder spell to do something like a dragoon jump and use the muscular body of the heartless to absorb the impact of our fall.

Either that or have dan run up and take the lance from spike and launch it straight upwards where Anon catches it on his way down and uses it as a retro rocket gypsy danger style and burns the fuck out of the hero with the backwash.

I do like the idea of using our fall damage against the Heartless, though if we can find a way to hedge our bets so that it's not just mutually assured destruction, that'd be cool too. Is there anything we can use as a retro-boost, like >>29565856 said? I'd be fine throwing away most of the mana we have left if it meant we didn't become a pancake on impact.

If retro video games have taught me anything, we can wait until we're five feet off the ground and then cast Thunder, which will safely and without consequence eliminate all of our momentum.

Fallen Hero vs Falling Hero
Round 2

Unfortunately we're at the start of the game, otherwise I'd suggest we try something a la pic related. I guess as long as Anon lands the blow on the Heartless, Dan could try and cushion the blow with his own body; a quick investigation for something else (that's not Spike) would be better though if Dan can manage it.

I think they're saying kick the booster on with a foot or something, and hang on to the cone part rather than the handle. All the flames shoot behind the cone to propel it. Though maybe we could try just a constant stream of Thunder at the ground? Does it exert a force when it leaves the keyblade? I mean, if we could throw the keyblade and have it ricochet back to us a few times, that might work too, but as it stands we don't have much that we can use from Anon's perspective, other than the potion to heal up,and I'm not sure that's enough. Dan saving the day is probably the more likely option.

I think that the lance maneveur is a little too risky/complex.

If we climb atop our keyblade to deliver the blow, we can transfer most of the impact to the blade and into whatever we land, as long as we have the right inclination

We know that there is no way we can actually break the damn thing unless our fall hits harder than the attack of a titan or Sephirot, so it's safer and it should deliver a huge damage bomb if only we can land it

If we manage it, we should make it a maneveur

I'm down for Dan throwing the mattress at where he thinks Anon will land after his Giga Impact, because my assumption was that forcefully unlocking a Heartless' chest cavity wouldn't exactly negate our momentum, just spread our damage on to him as well. If it would completely negate, then fuck it, hang 10 on that keyblade straight through Punisher's ugly face.

And if we kill him, inform our teammates that we figured out his one true weakness: "Point-blank annihilation."

Your current analytical fighter gives you 1/4 of your intellect bonus rounded up to attack and damage on melee attacks. this upgrades it to one half rounded up.

I should also clarify on what I mean by +2 ability points.

You can add a permanent +2 to one of your base stats or split it into a +1 on two separate stats.

A plus 2 to any one stat will raise its modifier by one point.

Analytical Fighter for Anon, so as to incentivize actually hitting things with the keyblade; we want to have a little bite in case we run up on something that resists magic (or just when we're low on MP).

Cleave for Spike sounds good, am I right in figuring that we're capped at hitting two enemies per turn with it?

Do most sources of healing work off of INT? Or are there some that benefit from other stats like CHA or DEX? If Intelligence is "the healing stat", I probably agree; otherwise, I wouldn't mind boosting his CON, so he gains more health per level (and, y'know, can generally avoid dying).

Anon I'd be fine giving more INT or CHA to. Unfortunately splitting them once we've got an even number of points in an ability doesn't make too much sense, since we only get the actual bonus increase every other point. I'd advocate for CHA just because we seem to be pretty good at that whole "talking people down" thing.

...No-Face. Technically Ghibli is produced by Disney, I'd love to see No-Face flinging gold at enemies and eating ones that are weak enough.
Merida sniping enemies from the shadows would be awesome too.

While spike's own self healing for potions do run off of int, that detriment doesn't apply to others using potions or cure spells on him. Plus there may be other self healing items that run off of other stats besides int. you'll have to keep an eye out for them. As for the Con choice not only does he gain more health per level, he also gains an additional hit point for each of his previous levels. Con applies retroactively. Plus a bump to your Con also improves spike's fire breath damage.

You are correct that spike is capped at one additional enemy off of cleave. at least until he gets greater cleave

Movie counts as disney property, and shorts-sequels (like "Tummy Trouble") done both by Disney and Amblin studio (that Disney bought with movie idea). But many people and studios worked on it, and Disney and WB by agreement had exactly the same amount of characters they own and same screentime for all of them, so I'm not really sure that Roger himself and other "main" characters are 100% Disney property by that logic. I mean, they even had to create looking similarly to Roger Bonker for "Bonker" cartoon series due to Amblin (which, again, Disney owned at that period) saying "Nope, don't overuse them". Also there's Gary that wrote a book about Roger in the first place... Who even owns Roger Rabbit?

Tarzan is barely Disney enough to be in kingdom hearts 1 and they've never been able to use him in any subsequent games thanks to claims by the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs. I'd say Roger Rabbit is more Disney property than Tarzan is, ergo his summon gem is absolutely something you might find.

The fallen hero could be powered up in one of two ways. When natural heartless die it gains a superpower charge. When activated it rolls a d10 and uses a random superpower. You all got hit with Laser vision. When it absorbs the heart from an emblem heartless on the other hand it gains All for One for one turn per heart.

As for AUTO he was meant to serve as a turn counter for your survival map. He was supposed to loose 10hp per turn before his power failed for good. He was also losing HP for each heartless you killed. 1 per shadow 2 per soldier 5 per EVE. As for just attacking AUTO and ignoring the heartless, AUTO was supposed to summon the second wave at 25 hp. So he would have dropped another 10 or so heartless on you and then died unable to force the survivors to self destruct. Just yanking him out and trying to steal him would have resulted in a dead Otto. You'd have still gotten the nav systems but no nav AI.

Ha! The Fallen Hero design is rad as heck, I'm kind of sad now that we didn't get to see some of his other moves. They probably would have wrecked our shit, but they could've been cool.

I just like the idea that all the stuff Dan crafts is by default horrifying in some way. "Here's a lance, it sets the user on fire when used as intended." "Here's a water purifier, it uses charcoal I made from burning these tapestries I found in a museum." "Look, it's a car! Sure it runs on frightened children and the last owner was trying to turn puppies into a coat, but it handles great!" I figure it's in line with the character that melted his best friend's family antique into an arrowhead and fired it from a bow he stole from an Indian burial ground. But I do definitely like that we can power our ship off of enjoying the hell out of a roadtrip with our dragonbro and the embodiment of petty vengeance, too.

Do you want Dan to focus on the large project that is the junk cannon or would you rather he make a few flash bangs and still have time to finish the item for the wolf's tear.
