In a fortnight my group is starting a One Piece adventure using M&M as the system.
I'm planning on using a Longlimb Tribe character, with his unique quirk being that he has both triplejointed arms and legs due to his mixed parentage, but I'm stumped on what sort of fighting style or techniques he should utilise.
I feel like with his extra joints contortion and double-jointed circus flexibility is a given, but that's not a fighting style. Any suggestions /tg/?
If he can roll up his arm with ease, you can make him toss things like a trebuchet.
If you're looking for more close range fighting though, you could use his arms like flails. Make a moveset around spinning things like wheels and windmills.
So what I'm getting from this is that he should definitely be a close-combat fighter. I can definitely work with that, a staccato freewheeling flailing ball of arms and legs does sound pretty amusing.
I was toying with some circus-related nonsense with his parents being skilled acrobats and incorporating trick knife throwing into his moves since he has superarms, but I'm not sure really.
In my head he's just lacking that spice that really makes an OP character, that unique zaniness.
Don't think you have to go too hard on the zaniness. Zoro and Sanji are main characters, and their fighting quirks are sword in mouth and exclusively using kicks.
I don't know the word for it, but you could make it so them can use their feet the same as their hands like a monkey.
Look up Ideo and Blue gilly. Hell have some links.
Ones a longarm the others a longleg, so you could probably merge the two some how.
Hrm, that's not a bad idea actually. It would certainly add a new element to his style.
With zaniness it's not so much just the fighting style as it is the character's quirks and personality traits, but I'm only brainstorming for fighting help at the moment so I guess that's not really necessary.
Huh yeah I guess so! I was musing about other weird ideas that just seemed so perfect for the One Piece world that I forgot how weird a Longlimb fighter actually is by default.
We all took d20 rolls that required a 17 or higher to be allowed a DF to start with and only one of us succeeded. It's all balanced in that it uses the same Power Points and character building restrictions as other characters, he just gets to be a little weirder. DM has assured us there'll be chances for DFs to be acquired in the future.
If you make him super flexibe and with prehensile feet then I can imagine him being this kinda creepy-ass spidery being who clambers up things with all four oddly-jointed spindly limbs, like a monstrous daddy-long-legs, and then hurling himself through the air to attack with elbow and knee strikes.
He should be an agile acrobatic fighter who moves through all three dimensions of space fluidly and naturally, like he's been practising acrobatics witht he circus since he could walk.
I'm imediately reminded of Ty Lee from Avatar when you talk about an acrobatic circus martial artist.
DF-blocking pressure point attacks? Probably too "haki" for a starting character but pressure point attacks could be cool, with longarms having a strong oriental vibe
I sure hope the DM and player are good enough at working together to do the usual One Piece thing where a useless sounding ability becomes ridiculously OP just by stretching the definition of your fruit power.
Haha I'm sure we'll get him flying around soon enough and using his fireworks as daze and blinding attacks like flashbangs or something similar.
I'm filling the martial artist role and there's a swordsman and a sniper so the chef will likely be a support fighter.
I've got an idea. He could fold up the last segments of his limbs to disguise himself as a normal human, and have fake hands and feet that he wears on his second joints. Normally he holds two weapons in his fake hands, but when he fights seriously, he unfolds his real hands and feet and uses them too, to fight with four weapons (and four boots) at once.
Oh no way, I was thinking of the "fold limbs and hide them away" thing too, but I got stuck with the hands and feet ending in the wrong places. False hands would be weird but potentially doable for sure. Maybe some minor cybernetic alterations are in order!
It wouldn't work. Ideo folds up his arms and it just gives him really weird shoulders. And Longlegs just have really long legs.
Ah didn't read your post right. But still wouldn't help the legs.
OP mentioned that
>his unique quirk being that he has both triplejointed arms and legs due to his mixed parentage
So I assume he has extra joints because he's a freak and can do shit like fold his legs up.
Staffs with multiple weapon options on the tips.
Oh, and nanite hypnotic tattoos.
>>>45020571 but that's not a fighting style. Any suggestions /tg/?
>Maybe some minor cybernetic alterations are in order!
I was thinking something more low-tech, like fake prop hands that he can use as effectively as regular hands because practice. Cybernetics are very high technology by One Piece standards.
Maybe that could fit into his backstory somehow, like being a former exotic slave before some sympathetic higher-ups in the World Government secretly modified his body to help him blend in. Got any backstory ideas already, OP?
LIKE BIG POPPA PUMP, SCOTT STEINER
So if I'm reading you right, you're suggesting something like this?
What about gunchucks? Three hundred percent better than swordchucks.
Basically, yes. Probably a weapon other than a sword, since the OP's crew already has a swordsman.
Since he's a descendant of two tribes, maybe he could have different weapons in each set of hands, to combine two martial arts traditions from the tribes.

To be fair he did sustain damage, just didn't feel it.
My favorite part was catching a bunch of diseases from a myriad of insects and bacterial lizard bites and then proceeding to walk into an enemy camp and spread my gross ass self everywhere.
Of course I couldn't even go near the party until I was cured.
This is even better if you just don't gave fake hands and feet and have him say he lost them in a circus accident, but use his acrobatics to balance on his stumps and fight using elbow and knee strikes until he busts out his secret extralong limbs for enemies that are Just Too Strong.
Hell, another of his favorite tricks was "catching blows" for his allies, drawing them to him almost like he was a black hole.
Also "catching a cold" allowed him to freeze people by touching them.

Man why is One Piece the best universe?
Because its fun and is written by a guy who can keep it real. That said, i got sidetracked and havent read the manga for like two and a half years, but keep meaning to get back to reading it.
If you like insane melee's, Marineford is the best manga melee i've ever read. If you like good stories, Sky Island had me amazed and was what i considered the pinnacle of his artstyle
>tfw you're the only one in your group of friends that wants to play a One Piece game
>Every Roll20 game I've seen has a captain with the GumGum fruit
Is it so much to ask for a decent One Piece game? I just want to have zany adventures on the high seas.
>Gomu Gomu Captain
Faggots the lot of them. All characters should get a randomised DF if they ever get lucky enough to get one at all.
When I played a game we had to roll a natural 20 at the start of character creation to be allowed to give our characters a DF at creation.
So no DFs for our crew for a while and fuck it was fun.
Everyone is drawn really distinctly. Even characters with sinister designs will have something unusual about them, like the admirals being crazy tall.
Also setting-wise, it's home to the most heinous atrocities (Alabasta, Ohara, Impel Down) and the most amazing of wonders (Skypeia, Water 7, Fishman Island, Neptunians, Enies Lobby)
Happy go lucky bullshit, awesome fight scenes, cool powers, and a writer who has a knack for making the most ridiculous nonsense perfectly normal and understandable.
I mean, he had a grown ass man dressed as a baby in a diaper whos powers involved swimming through anything and being "hard boiled" all the time. And I wound up taking THAT seriously. If that's not a blessed literary gift from gods beyond mortal ken I don't know what is.
Right now off the top of my head I'm thinking navigator with an insect motif. He finds new islands by sending out fly's or other bugs as scouts. Perhaps he's a Fly Zoan, perhaps he's just a normal dude who has a knack for creepy crawlies. Who knows?
A Longlimb martial artist who has traits of both the Longarms and the Longlegs, but I never finished fleshing it out because my thread got derailed.
I kid. If I get the chance I want to make a Mantis Shrimp Fishman who was an elite royal guard but accidentally ate a DF and now can't swim so he exiled himself to a freezing Winter Island in shame and became a solitary hunter who seeks out legendary Sea Emperors to kill in hunter-combat in a suicidal form of glory.
His goal is to find a way to extract his DF power and remove the curse so he can return home, as well as to successfully kill the Sea Emperor that has eluded him for all his years on his island.
But since I didn't get a DF for my character creation roll I can't go with that backstory so lol longlimb freak go.
I remember I had a whole fake crew though up in high school. Of course being high school they were edgy counterparts to the main cast. If I recall it was...
Captain: Guy with an eyeball artifact that lets him see his own death and avoid it. It tells him to go to the edge of the world.
First mate: The Glass-Glass fruit. All offense, no defense. Makes glass swords.
Navigator: Sea Sage, in service of the water god Poseidon.
Chef: Child werewolf. Keeps a piece of moonstone in a locket and opens it when he needs to transform.
Doctor: Big burly man that eschews chemicals and heals through massage, acupuncture, and homeopathy.
Shipwright: Puppeteer. Had a mech suit made entirely out of wood and string.
I think there was a seventh but I can't remember.
Both, actually, but it was a huge dramatic moment when Whitebeard did it. He was a fucking fantastic character, god damn.
A burly miner who is essentially a slave working in a World Government seastone mine, which is isolated and heavily guarded.
While most of the miners use jackhammers and pickaxes, this guy uses brass knuckles and explosive boxing power to punch the rocks into dust and extract the seastone.
Due to the unsafe conditions of the mines and numerous cave ins, his entire huge body is covered in horrible scars, except that somehow his amazingly handsome face has never suffered a scratch.
Only because there are no mirrors on this slavemine island he had no idea that his face is beautiful and is convinced it is as scarred as his body, so he's bashful and shy about showing his face to others, preferring to hide under a potato-sack mask. Nothing can convince him otherwise about his face and his fears, so it's a recurring gag.
Actually, what role would your character fulfill on the crew? "Martial artist" isn't exactly a job in a pirate crew; Sanji fights with his feet but he's the crew's chef. It's the same with most of the other characters; they have a job they do on the ship, and a fighting style that's (usually) tangenially related to it. So what would your guy do?
Don't forget; Whitebeard, while past his prime, terminally ill, AND mortally wounded, not only defeated the man who would go on to replace Sengoku as Fleet Admiral, but hit him so hard he shattered Navy HQ.
https://youtu.be/iC8Re4yYClo?t=165 How this didn't kill Sakazuki outright I have no idea.
There are six of us and chef, doctor and navigator are already taken. Shipwright doesn't fit my idea of his circus history so...
I dunno, I was sort of thinking his circus act antics could make him the Entertainer/Musician of the crew? The Longarm tribe is often associated with music so it fits.
Let's be honest, here, Zoro doesn't really have a job outside of "beat people up." In theory he's the first mate but he doesn't really seem to have any actual obligations. Hell, in One Piece, "First Mate" seems to mean "strong enough to keep the rest of the assholes in line".
Not every person on the crew needs to fulfill some role. Just look at Robin. Much like a real crew, you need someone who can fight enemy boarding parties, man the crows' nest, and swab decks.
>but hit him so hard he shattered Navy HQ.
And that hit was to the stomach or balls(kind of hard to tell). So props to Sakazuki for being able to get up after a hit like that, at all. He is many things, but a wimp is not one of them.
Motherfucking Kaido. A guy so hard, he can't fucking die.
Fuck it was the manga panda translation. have the better one.
>So, basically the entire left side of his upper torso.
Still...that's a quake sphere and also probably haki enhanced(to bypass Sakazuki's logia invulnerability)punch from "the world's strongest man" straight to an area of the body filled with all sorts of vital organs. That Sakazuki is not only alive, but healthy enough to fight Kuzan for three whole days for the position of fleet admiral after taking a hit like that(not right after but it's the most notable thing that happened to any of the admirals during the timeskip), speaks volumes to how tough he is.
Dunno, we never rolled that one. It's in a section of completely made up fruits so I'm guessing it isn't. It probably is a troll fruit that just swaps the user's gender back and forth or something.
Pretty clear he just went with the least powerful Logia that have shown up. The candy syrup one is also non canon and so are several of the Paramecia ones.
At least it isn't the shitty mystery liquid logia from Movie 2.
I have no idea what this does. So I'm just going to pretend it's Bartolomeo's fruit, because his fruit is awesome.
There's no way I can't be some sort of overly dramatic actor-type who swaps "roles" and appearances like hats.
Actually, shit, come to think of it, that'd be great.
I NEED SCENERY AND A BACKDROP
I expect it is Capone Bege's fruit, the Shiro Shiro no Mi? It can mean either castle or fortress.
Of course that only got its name a couple of chapters ago, but it might have been a good guess on the GM's behalf.
My guess is you can make anything a fortress, and make a fortress from anything. You can turn your ship into a fortress, turn yourself into a fortress, make a fortress out of a mountain, or out of cannonballs or some shit...
Just use your fruit to turn your cannonballs into a fortress after they've been fired and laugh all the way to the Grand Line as you sail your ironclad galleon.
It's in the canon section so it's either Bartholomeo's or Bege's fruit. But Barty was using Bari Bari as technique names early on so it should be obvious that his is the barrier fruit.
I'm guessing Capone but could be Barty if this was really early on in Dressrosa when the list was made.
>Entire ship is reminiscent of a stage/broadway theater
>Productions every single day
>Scenery and backdrops so gorgeously realistic they can trick other ships with fake additions
>Crewmembers have laughs that sound like stuff like opera singing and shit
>Goal is to make the whole world a beautiful stage
This shit LITERALLY writes itself, holy fuck.
That just means you're not being creative enough, Anon!
>but could be Barty if this was really early on in Dressrosa when the list was made.
I choose to believe this, as I honestly wouldn't be able to use the other one creatively enough. But Barty's fruit comes with loads of built in utility and versatility.
Sporeman should also be our doctor. Not all spores have to be detrimental to your health.
A famous composer who lost his right hand i n an accident at a zoo and had it replaced with a conducters baton.
Ive thought of some cool drawbacks to counteract this.
1: He's immune to his own spores for better or worse. He can't poison himself but he also can't heal himself or dope himself up with combat stims.
2: His abilities are almost all AOE, meaning friendly fire and enemy healing are all entirely possible.
I like to think he made all his crew members injest a little amount of his poison each day so that if they did get in the way the effects wouldn't be nearly as catastrophic.
Oh yeah I guess that'd be okay too?
I'll be Admiral Kurokumo because my cages are black and I trap my foes like a spider's web.
Fortress,you can be Admiral Ashigewani, the Grey Crocodile, and Blade can be Admiral Gintaka, the Silver Falcon
I like that a lot, actually. I imagine his biggest way of powering up is learning how to make new spores?
Blade doesn't have to be made of steel. The ability to turn anything into/conjure a blade sounds much better
It starts off with simple wood, Metal, stone, Metal, ect but eventually evolves to light, wind, and other cool shit.
Nigga you can have Unlimited Blade Works as a devil fruit.
Pretty sure it's this fruit. So it's just steel and turning yourself into metal blades.
Which is fucking hardcore, mind you.
That and more focused release of the spores. Physical contact allows him to inject them into your skin but he's definitely not a close range fighter.
So far I see his repertoire at the moment as sleep, paralysis, different levels of poison, powder that explodes when touched by fire, rage enducing spores, healing, and various combat stims.

God damn, fights with these guys would basically be how Naruto should've been. Mindgames, stealth, and deceit from start to finish.

Roll for a fruit and then trying to come up with a guy following the thematic WITHOUT having a fruit, relying only on regular zany bullshit
Fortress, Blade, Candy were kinda non-thematic and through to switch to marines due to more serious themes.
And I think that's enough votes for it to be locked in! As you can see by the three color fluctuating spores beside me, Disguise is our trusted Captain! Even though we know not his name, may he lead our ship on the river of stars!
Well, it can't be Chameleon, because the Captain's gotta be confident and outgoing. And it can't be Shitake, because while I love that guy having your doctor fight the strongest member of enemy crews all the time is just asking for trouble.
It's gotta be either Disguise for CONFIDENCE, or Echo for MIGHTY COMMANDS.
Neverland Crew is pirates, who probably engage in direct combat as little as possible, instead opting for mind tricks, stealth, deceit, and straight up shenanigans. I imagine Disguise is able to shift his own body type at will, and knows a huge range of different fighting styles that he can take advantage of through his ability to change his own body type into the ideal for certain ways of fighting.
Sell, I've already got Shitake so lets make a navigator.
A young girl, around 12, who has a natural affinity for insects. She talks to them as if they were people and lets them all sit in her giant afro of red hair. She uses them for scouting ahead to find islands and to detect changes in the weather before they happen. Not very helpful in a fight unless she's picked up some dangerous bug friends along the way.
oh, no, i meant blade, fortress, and cage specifically
fair enough, marines it is
i'd think the Neverland crew would be on fairly good terms with the local navy, if they didn't fly their colors they could easily be mistaken for a traveling performance crew
True, true. I like it.
I think I'll write up a little story for this. I've grown very attached to this ragtag group of Pirates. Perhaps I'll write the first encounter with Pockets.
I know. I did a different thing
>Roll for a fruit and then trying to come up with a guy following the thematic WITHOUT having a fruit, relying only on regular zany bullshit
I.e. using the fruit as an idea seed for a gimmick of a fruit-less character.
I think the more likely scenario is that they're just so good at what they do they either have enough goodwill to avoid the Marines most of the time, or they're just too good at escaping...which inevitably results in the Terrible Trio, consisting of Blade, Fortress, and Cage, to be dispatched to capture them.
Either way, flying the Jolly Roger seems to be a huge point of pride for every pirate crew, and I can't recall any crew that's ever hidden theirs.
>I've grown very attached to this ragtag group of Pirates.
Yeah, me too. I think I'll adapt them as a group into a superhero game I was planning.
Both for heists and spontaneous performances.
They'd do well for comic relief alongside Pieman I'm stealing from Wearing the Cape.
>marines purse the crew to the harbor
>manage to overtake the escaping pirates
>rush to take over their ship
>surprise, the ship is fake, the rushing crowd of marines lemmings themselves into the water
>their real ship is disguised as another ship a couple docks over
Really good at escaping.
But the question is, do they just do performance acts (perhaps defaming and exposing WG) or do they also commit actual thievery heists?
>the arc where the whole crew is captured by the terrible trio except for Wireframe and Shitake, who must intercept the marine ship before it reaches Impel Down.
>That awesome fight scene between the Wireframe and Blade
I think they only do Robin Hood-esque theft from people who don't need it or are just assholes I'm general. They actually make their money honestly from tickets and concession food, apart from a little pickpocketing.
>The arc where Pockets is forced to team up with The Neverland Pirates to fight a vicious tyrant who hates all forms of fun.
>The scene where Pockets smuggles the whole crew into his throne room under his bowler hat
Not sure how well Wireframe would accommodate though.
The whole crew is geared towards misdirection and avoidance.
Hell, can't even tie down a guy that is sword all over.
Unless he steals some seastone chains or something.
I have no doubt that Wireframe carries seastone wires with him at all times, if only to wrestle up his rowdy crew members. He's totally the straight man and most serious of the group.
he typically goes for a single arm transformed into a large blade, his fighting style's more suited to a one-handed saber than an entire body's worth of blades
assuming you could bind him quickly enough, and whatever you used had enough tensile strength
and chances are, he's vastly underestimating Wireframe
God damn, what the fuck is up with that pic OP? It's shit like that that makes me hate Japanimation more than anything in the world.
Admirals are all overpowered as hell. Even when they're not logia.
(Which makes some guy declaring the three RNG borne marines in admiral status and having them pursue a merry band of performers and be faced with a CHALLENGE bloody hilarious)
>Pockets is getting his shit wrecked. All the weapons and tricks he had stowed away over time are useless against Fortress.
>Before the final blow, Pockets manages to trap them both in his pocket dimension, leaving only the bowler hat.
>The crew finds Pocket's hat after the battle and are still patiently awaiting for him to pop out, not even entertaining the thought that their friend passed away in the dimension.
You even got a quirk now: taking multiple times to do things you said you will do. Or something like that.
Which can be funny with poison.
Having a quirk is important in OP.
If I could edit this I would.
That's pretty much how Luffy and co. dealt with Smoker for the longest time, him being a logia with no clear weakness to exploit like Crocodile had. That and just running the fuck away whenever him and Tashigi showed up.
It definitively should. Turning into seastone would mean you can't use your power ever again and get stuck as you transformed.
It could be an epic way to go for a last stand, sacrificing yourself to save the day one last time.
Unless you find a way to remove the seastone surgically.
The question on my mind stems from the fact that with very few exceptions, no one ever becomes a pirate for funsies. TRAGEDY is almost always a component.
How much TRAGEDY is part of the Neverland Pirates backstory?
I suspect that he forces everyone to breathe small portions of his spores every day to build up their immune systems, whether they want to or not, in case he accidentally poisons someone.
>"I seem to be releasing paralysis spores today...Dammit, where is that lizard? He always hides around doctor time. THE SHIP ISNT BIG ENOUGH TO HIDE FOREVER CAM! YOURE GETTING YOUR DAILY DOSE!"
I can't help but think that Disguise's powers work on both people and things, just because it's too funny not to. Maybe he's got a limit of things or mass that he can disguise at once.
> He (she?) shows up so often his attacks become expected and get integrated to the show.
> He either hates/loves that or never notices, staying "in character" forever as far the audience know.
The setting is One Piece, and in the show haki users aren't terribly common, despite it being a thing that anyone can learn to use. Luffy had never even heard of it before Rayleigh started training him to use it.
Which is fucking weird because Garp could use it. What an asshole.
While Haki is uncommon, Devil Fruits are downright rare, and Devil Fruits that give you some form of invulnerability even rarer.
I'm after some more Dragon screentime, personally. He's THE most wanted man in the world, is directly leading a rebellion against the Celestial Dragons, and presumably much stronger than Sabo, his second-in-command, who won the final round of the tournament for the Mera Mera with very little fuss. Come to think of it, I want some real brotherly bonding with Ace and Sabo. I thought we'd get it after Dressrosa but Sabo had to fuck off almost immediately.
If Pockets is our Team Rocket, Fortress, Blade, and Cage are our Butch and Cassidy. The only reason they don't succeed is Neverland Pirates being crafty fucks or Pockets screwing up their plan some how.
I was actually considering a One Piece game myself, some time ago. Since I only know of 3.5 and Pathfinder, I thought of putting it in that system but everyone warned me against it. I was especially interested in actually following the Straw Hat story since the people I game with are normalfags and never heard or watched One Piece so it would all be new to them.
Getting a Devil fruit would be akin to getting a whole new school style from the Tome of Battle/Path of War with passive abilities adding up. Of course, what DF you get is entirely random. Plus it makes you weak as shit in water and helpless in those handcuffs made out of sea or something. It had potential to be fun, but I know that people would exploit the system one way or the other.
Alright folks before I head off to bed I'm gonna have another little poll for which story I write tomorrow. If this thread isn't up I'll make a new thread for it. The options are as follows.
>Pilot - Let the Show Begin!
>The Neverland Pirates in Showdown at Logue Town
>Shitake goes shopping
>Pocket's Grand Finale
I'll check the thread/archive when I get up tomorrow for the consensus. For now, this is your faithful doctor Shitake signing off.
Y'all had to go remind me about One Piece RPing didn't you? Used to be a part of a forum RP years and years ago and had a blast being a kickass marine. Now it's dead. They're all dead.
So far, pretty straightforward. We've been trying to go under the radar till we become an official crew, to avoid scrutiny from the mods or other players. Characters so far include;
>Marooned sky pirate
>Martial arts okama with a toucan devil fruit
>A runaway highborn noble fencer looking for adventure
>A chubby little fishgirl astral navigator
Just google "Bon Voyage RP", maybe One Piece included.
Sort of. The guy who's doing that exact situation wouldn't divulge which RP site he was on which is fair, so a bunch of us inspired by his story took the idea and ran with it on the biggest One Piece RP site we could find. So not that same situation, but the same premise. We're going pretty good now, and already people are nervous about our sudden and rapid size increase and advancement.
Mosa Mosa no Mi is a fruit that enables rapid plant growth. I guess there wasn't a catchy English name the GM could think of? Grow Grow is pretty generic as far as names go.
Cool. Any crew roles are fine, even ones we already have. First and foremost play the character you want to since we're in it for the long haul, and the more players/characters, the better. Gives us a better chance of making waves, and standing up for ourselves under higher lever player ire, and even mods.
If you make an intro thread and make some sort of subtle /tg/ reference that they wouldn't get on the site, I'll be able to tell and message you, if you're still interested.
Flag Flag huh?
PATRIOT of ALL NATIONS! Flags everywhere. Flags made out of GUNS and SWORDS and BATTLESHIPS!
Floating gently across the seas, unfurling his flag into a raft whenever he comes close to water. You want to fight? To bad! This pretty banner right here suddenly turns into a YELLOW BRICK ROA-WALL!
