      Quick question, if you start as Naruto, does it mean that you begin with three captures(Minato, Kushina, Kurama), I haven't seen any rules regarding the shadow clones inside him, and since they lasted a long time, they are probably some soul pieces or something.

        I never read Naruto, but the RAW for Substitute has a rule for if your target starts with familiars.

      Hello, i've got a few questions:
      1. If I want to get Superman's powerset and not a race change to kryptonian, do I also get Supes weakness to kryptonite? Follow-up, would body defense block kryptonite's effect?

      2. Are there other ways for the retinue to benefit from Inexhaustible aside from Complementary Colors and Second-generation symbiote, that's in the catalog?
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        1. Ctrl+F "Kryptonian" in the doc. This is explicitly answered.
        2. Transhuman can also do it after a certain point. I don't know the new tree as well as the old. The general-use option is to just find a waifu who can create soul-connections.

      In the interactive catalog randomizer for used waifus, you get sometimes conditions like, muscle tremors, persistent fatigue, etc.

      Those type of physical conditions should be erased whe they join your retinue due to body talent, right?

      I was reading about the change of race, either with the Racial Template or with the Template Stacking 1 version of the Unstable catalog, if I substitute myself in Emiya Shirou and change the race to a DxD devil does it mean that I would lose the magic circuits? since it's a total race change
      1. Thunder God
        Thunder God
        And about Added potential to the Magecraft would be enough to restore the use of magic circuits? (it never hurts to have a secondary source of Magic power)

        Also about Advanced Template Stacking, which one do you think would encompass Nasu's magecraft because it seems quite scientific but also magic circuits are supposed to reside in the soul so would either one work or which one would be necessary

      Hi long time fan I had a question about the Teir for Dresden Files that confused me since the setting had alot of Teir 11, 10, 9's that are active even if we don't see them in Chicago alot they are around and would be a threat to a Catalog user unless they had all the info and Tracing defenses (even that probably wouldn't be enough) as soon as they droped in why is it so low?
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        Remember how power works in the Dresdenverse: the more of it you have, the less you can actually use. This is an explicit rule of the setting.

      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        Patrons aren't actually part of the lore. They're just an overpowered thing that someone made and the interactive decided to include for whatever reason.

      A okay, I finally understood how to read this piece of crap. Trauma tier is how many tiers from the character you're taking from them due to their trauma. Pretty much you reduce them a tier for each instance of trauma received.
    13. Lord_Indoril_Nerevar
      Lord_Indoril_Nerevar
      No... But I'm not paying discounts.

      I'm actually paying double, triple, even 10 times that (50 points for base tier 3 waifus) So I can get them in a higher tier (A tier 7 Cammy White for example) through the used waifu mechanic.

      And Im getting negative numbers (-1, -2) in the the trauma tiers in the rolls of the interactive catalogue.
    14. Lord_Indoril_Nerevar
      Lord_Indoril_Nerevar
      A question regarding the slighty used waifu option.

      What does it mean to have negative numbers in the trauma tier? How can you explain that in-story?

      Or am I reading the interactive catalogue wrong?
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        In-story, it means they're psychologically broken in a way that justifies a -50%, -80%, or -90% discount. Slightly Used is part- Special Deals, part-Clearance Rack.

      hey i have a question i am currently trying to make a build on your catalog and wanted to know if i for example buy Storm(Xmen) and then go to marvel comics is there a way to get the one i bought to replace the one already there or is it up to the player? and also is there a way to increase a waifus tier without using the dragon heritage?
      1. Danieldhdy

      if the answer to that last one is negative then Deep Weave could work to take those missions? Since it says you can steal its form and it's Possession based and you get the memories like you would with substitution, could it be used to fulfill those quest requirements by absorbing them (It didn't fit all in one message)
    18. Thunder God
      Thunder God
      I have a doubt regarding the missions, I found some missions where you have to replace or possess someone specific, does it mean that they can only be taken if you chose that option as Chargen? Or the missions would give that substitution or possession, required target?
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        You're thinking of Challenges, which can only be taken at chargen and are almost entirely unofficial (though I did make one of my own, so...). Missions are all post-chargen and don't allow that sort of thing. Other than that, the two are similar enough that they can often be converted in either direction, with some work of course.

        Oh thanks, I was thinking of a mission that I found in the interactive version of the Catalog created by Om1cr0n (it's something more comfortable when you don't have to keep track of the points and options) , they uploaded a mission where you had to possess Ozma from RWBY that's why it was my question if Deep Weave work in that type of Missions

      Will you be bringing a way to make transhuman cores through Tantric Arts like you could do with the old ritual or are you kinda just force into using shroud to get higher level cores.(Anyway to cutdown the time needed to get a master core would be great cos it's something like 25,000 Years of work.)
      1. SwiftRosenthal

      Question, why isn't there something like Template Stacking for mundane purposes? Let's say someone wants to get the skills of a famous artist/performer/actor to help with a subtler way of getting waifus, specially if you mix it with Arousing Whispers and being a famous singer.
    21. Lord_Indoril_Nerevar
      Lord_Indoril_Nerevar
      Also, as another question, will it be possible for me to get free perks depending of my avatar?

      Say, If I were to substitute into Alexstraza from wow, could it be possible for me to gain the dragon blood and dragon scale perks for free by only paying the waifu substitution costs during the character creation due to the nature of my substitution target?
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        The answer is in the RAW, at the start of the Heritage section.

      Yo, I've been checking the world ratings up and down time and again and I can't find the rating for genshin impact anywhere. Yet the waifu ratings, those I can find easy in the east rpg section. Which is weird....

      In any case, I need an actual rating for the Genshin setting, currently i'm tentatively going with 5.

      This is probably a dumb question but I'll ask anyway. If OC Donut Steel is used on say, Nymphadora Tonks, would they receive magic without needing to buy Template Stacking or just her meta ability? Also, would the buyer gain her knowledge of magic?
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        OCDS has been merged back into Template Stacking in the current unstable. The question is obsolete because it's all just one perk now.

      Is there anywhere I can suggest changes to the Catalog? There are various characters and even entire fandoms which are missing (e.g. Percy Jackson), and there are also ratings for some characters which just don't really make sense (e.g. Kida from Disney's Atlantis being tier 1, despite being both near-immortal and peak human).
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        There's a discord (in my sig) and a link to a commentable version of the unstable spreadsheet in the first post of the index thread. If you have an entire fandom of suggestions to make at once, PMs are often better.

      I was looking at the Neocities interactive Waifu Catalog, and was wondering what the cost to substituting as the Sith Inquisitor character (he who becomes Darth Nox) in SWToR would be. Looking at your official list, you have stuff from KoToR 1 and 2, but nothing from SWToR. Hell, I am not even seeing anything from the SW movies, either.
      1. Jordisk
        Jordisk
        Closest I can see, currently, is Substituting as a Sith Apprentice (T4), and fanwanking as the last of the Line of Kallig.

        "Characters from live-action works" are purposely excluded from the official catalog, because the art for them would logically be still frames from their works, i.e. of real people. That's why Wars, Trek, and Gate are all absent. TOR is absent because the giant list of Old Republic era characters that I was provided only covered the single-player games.

      Hey, got a question. If you were to chose a game mode option were you dispense with the buying mechanics and make it so that the only way to acquire waifus is to capture them in the wild and you can never use credits to gain new ones but you can still improve them.

      Do you receive somekind of bonus or extra credits to buy more perks?
