Q: What's all this about?
A: This is an interest and recruitment post for Disgaea Valor, a game that, as it sounds, is a Disgaea game run in the tabletop system Valor.

Q: What's Valor?
A: A system that uses grid-based combat and emphasized character customization, flexibility, and rewards you for being ridiculous or over the top - perfect for Disgaea, in other words. (If you don't have a copy, you can be provided a PDF once the game starts, as long as you don't share it or use it outside of this game.)

Q: And how is it going to be run? Like, how will we be playing this?
A: In Roll20, an online client for tabletop games. Free to signup and works like a charm - I've been using it to play tabletops for a while now, and I ran my last game in it.

Q: When are you planning on starting?
A: Once my current tabletop ends. I have a little over a month's worth of content left. But I want time to get planning on this game, so thus!

Q: What can you tell me about your planned Disgaea Valor?
A: I'll be aiming for the same feel and tone as the games. The characters will all start off as low-level demons (or whatever, there's always room for humans, prinnies, angels, and other races in Disgaea games) and work their way up to ridiculous powers. (You won't actually be reaching 9999 in system, but you might in character.)

Since every Disgaea takes place in separate Netherworlds anyway, so will this one. Brand new Netherworld, brand new characters.

Q: I don't actually know anything about Disgaea. Tell me about it!
A: Disgaea is a tactical-RPG franchise heavily inspired by anime. Every game takes place in a Netherworld where demons live under the rule of an Overlord, generally the most powerful demon in that Netherworld. Angels exist in a place called Celestia, and humans usually make appearances, whether they be from a fantasy world or modern Earth, although most of the time the focus is on the demons. And although demons have a skewed sense of morality, the good guys of the games aren't out-and-out evil so much as good-masquerading-as-evil.

3. All days, let's say 6:30pm to 12 AM EST on weekdays and all day on weekends.
4. Familiar up to Disgaea 3, after that....
5. Doctor Nocebo, Healer for Hire, wanted by the Hospital for undercutting their price by 1 Hel. She's a total Quack, proscriber of homeopathic medicine, faith healing, and 'natural medicine'. Also knows how to drive a tank or UFO if we bust out those sorts of things.
6. Giant Numbers and possibly Phat Loot.
7. I have a Steam Wishlist, please gift all items on it to...

2. What's your plurk username! [plurk.com profile] NekoIncardine
3. What days/hours are you available? (Keep in mind this will be starting in January.) Any evening after around 5:30 Pacific. Sundays after 4ish Pacific/end of Trust Precure for the day. Saturdays are riskier than any other day due to things constantly happening.
4. How canon familiar are you? Have cleared 1, and played at least a couple chapters of every other one. Have all the english-released Manga volumes (that's two of Disgaea 2, the one for 1, and the two so far for 3).
5. Character concept? (Revised again) Madeline "Maddy" Carter an adventuress from an Earth-like realm in a mixed Wild West/fantasy era. She uses a six-shooter and a bevy of magic bullets to fight enemies at range, and even crack some traps - important for someone regularly stuck handling ancient ruins. She dresses in a cowgirl form of dress because, lack of horse notwithstanding, she basically is one. Her backpack's loaded with a ridiculous array of supplies. Agi/Mind would be her main stat pair. Unknown to her, her mother was actually a Succubus who fell in love with a mortal. She herself is asexual, though a bit touchy-feely when she's not shoot-happy.
6. Things I Desire: A general pattern of Ridiculous Characters.
7. What present do you want for your winter holiday of choice this year? A better chair.

3. I'm open pretty much every day of the week, except Fridays. Anytime after 3:00 PM PST would be ideal.
4. I know basically jack squat, aside from what little I've picked up from osmosis and wiki crawling.
5. Mannfred, peevish demon bureaucrat booted out of an adjacent Netherworld for being too annoying/pissing off the wrong person. The Netherworld he's from is all about cutthroat boardroom politics and Wolf of Wall Street levels of excess, so it's be pretty easy to get deported just for stepping out of line. He's not entirely sure why he had to leave, of course, and really he's mostly concerned with getting back to his nice, cozy office where he can lord what minuscule amount of power he has over his subordinates.
Likes: Peace and quiet, following orders, badgering other people into following orders
Dislikes: Loud noises, ignorance, high blood pressure
Wields the Black Ledger, a mysterious tome containing one of the most foul of all magics: Math. Primarily an offensive caster, with a healthy mixture of debuffs and status ailments.

3. I have a show performing in January, so my availability might be spotty around then, but after that I'm free pretty much any night that isn't Sunday.
4. Ssssorta canon familiar. I watched the Disgaea 1 anime and beat Disgaea 2 a long time ago, but haven't kept up with the series since then. I also really loved Soul Nomad.
5. SO MANY. Right now I've got a concept for a demon, an angel, and a Prinny character. Will probably end up rolling with whatever fills out the party best.
6. Lovable, recurring NPCs! It's something I've enjoyed in DBV and I think Disgaea would be great for it.
7. I just want Starbucks to admit that they're owned by Satan and they're trying to destroy Jesus' birthday.

1. I'm Awe!
2. Wow, I forget the tag for this awestriker on plurk
3. Friday evenings or Saturdays would be best. I expect to open up some February and beyond though.
4. Only the very basics! Like, the general plot of D1 and D2 and the initial situation in D4.
5. Gunner and weapon shop guy that remembered his previous life as a Ninja, went rogue out of suddenly realizing he hates the Gunner class' design (and the wild west aesthetic in general), and is now going into gadget stuff.
6. Ignoring the fourth wall (by both the PCs and NPCs).
7. A desktop PC would be nice

3. Any time Friday, after six or seven (EST) Saturday, or after ten on Monday or Thursday.
4. I haven't played 5 yet, but the series used to be my jam.
5. Dex/Int fighter who uses guns; even greedier than normal demons, he markets himself as The Netherworld's Most _____ (depending on what makes him sound desirable at the time) Mercenary and will do any job for enough money. The party may need the prospectof a major payday in the future to successfully recruit him.
6. Despite it being vague and inconsistent as hell, I love the worldbuilding in Disgaea. Let's make up some shit about how the Netherworld works.
7. Immortality

3. Mondays, Wednesdays, Friday & Saturday. Weekdays are 6CST to 11CST, Saturday all day.
4. Very! Cleared D1, 2, & 3, last chapter of 4, and working on 5.
5. A contract demon who is part of a Netherworld tomes and contracts. The Netherworld keeps copies of all forms of literary works from the human world and netherworld, and some from Celestia when they can get their hands on them. Their possessions include the contract that ensures the law of gravity and establishes the boundaries between the Netherworlds, Human World, and Celestia. Her role is to seek and form contracts for other demons, humans, and angels which exchanges a part of their essence for a portion of their being, which she in turn uses to satiate their Overlord. She's quiet, intelligent, and a bit intimidated. But is a master at reading and writing words... even within menu and dialog boxes.
6. I love Disgaea's medium awareness and ability to make nonsense meaningful. It has an excellent ability to defy conventions when its at its best.
7. Two weeks of sleeping in. u_u

3. Most weekday afternoons from (1:30 PM CST to 7:00 PM CST); additionally, I am available on Wednesday and Thursday nights past 7 PM CST
4. Semi-familiar, I have played (but not beaten) Disgaea's 1, 2 and 3.
5. Always wanted to play a female fist-fighter type character, less a monk/martial artist, but more like a scrappy street fighter type character
6. Nope, I trust your DM abilities! (Maybe a few cameo appearances from main Disgaea cast?)
7. It's kind of embarrassing, but I really want a Cloud 9 Gaming Team hoodie.

3. Weekday late evening (PST) or weekend afternoons.
4. Finished Disgaea 1 and 2 main stories. Played some of 3, 4, D2, La Pucelle, and Phantom Brave.
5. Probably an angel! A wandering muse searching for inspirations to send to the human world. Possibly also a stuck-up shit to rival Rozalin. I can think of a few reasons to be in the Netherworld, from slumming to getting hit by a meteor while texting-while-flying to something semi-serious like being cursed to turn into a fallen angel and trying to find a cure.
6. It's Disgaea, so stupidity.
7. World peace

Why not mix and match on 5? Was intending to slum, caused a serious accident by texting-while-flying, was Fallen as a result because he couldn't pay the 5 HL fine (it was just Prinnies he ran over).
