      So, don't know if this has been answered anywhere, but would it be possible to Substitute into a build from a CYOA? Specifically, a Star Nephilim (https://imgur.com/a/b3uDCTP). I could use Template Stacking, but that gets me a T4 equivalent that would need training to get more. Also, what Tier do you think for a Generic Star Nephilim, 7 or 8?

      New to CYOAs, and because why not, I chose to start with Waifu Catalog. Is it just a living document, or is there a specific version I should look for if I want the most up-to-date?

      Hello, I just had a quick question regarding the catalog and starting worlds. If I wanted to get into a starting world with R63 variants of certain characters, would I need to have Universal Calibration as part of my starting build? And am I right in assuming that Universal Calibration would even allow me to genderbend characters anyway?

      Just wanted to say thanks for all the effort on the catalog. I also appreciate it when I see a comment by you on my R34 CYOA stories. I have a new one coming out sometime soon as well, so I hope I’ll see you there too.

      Sorry for bothering you, but I was wondering which talent will work on Force from Star Wars. Is It Soul or Psychic?
      My second question is about bindings. Do they always ramp so fast or could I play with it by lengthening time that leads to love?
      1. Ypintox
        Ypintox
        That should depend on the aspect of the force you want to train, it should probably be a mix of body/soul/psychic talents to manipulate its fundamental aspects Physical/Cosmic/Living into the Unifying force, but then again, what do I know? And then you get things like Mechu Deru, which probably need scientific knowledge, plant surge and so on... Take all of the talents

      I'd like a little clarification on one of the controls specifically Hotel California, does it count as a binding or a lure? also about what kind of facilities I can make use of, I had an idea of a combination doctor/psychiatrist office + insane asylum + bondage dungeon (sexy nurses ans straightjackets for everyone) would that be viable?

        HC is an Other Control. That's viable.

      I didn't want to clog a thread so I'm leaving this random comment here. Company workers must be getting sick and tired of constantly receiving people from the worm-verse considering the myriad of other destinations in the catalog. Hell, some worker must be screaming internally: *Taylor Hebert again?! AAAAGHHHHHH!!* At this point, it's easier to count the stories on one hand that ignores worm rather than go there.

      Quick question, does the special ritual circle in the previous version of the catalog create cores in the people it affects?

      I noticed that you updated the document. Enlightened Talent doesn’t explicitly mention that it is a experience multiplier, so does that make it a flat gain that bumps you roughly up to T5-T6?

      Also, I’m giggling at the idea of Jaune Arc and his insane aura levels being boosted by this and Soul Talent. Ozpin would probably set up a breeding program
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        Don't think of the Advanced Talents' prices in terms of tier gain. I just figured 30-40 credits for each seemed fair, then opted for the low end of the range.

        Okay! I would appreciate a rough estimate on the power boost that it gives because the only mention to that end is drawing out your power like Goku... and I doubt you mean that literally.

        Just guessing, if it’s an instant power boost and not a learning multiplier... it probably depends on the person (like when Guru unlocks someone’s potential)

        Thank you, and sorry for bugging you

        It's more of an effectiveness multiplier, but I don't want to give a hard number because it would simultaneously be too powerful for (popular setting), yet so weak as to be worthless in (other popular setting), and the specific value would just be pulled out of my ass anyway.

        But yes, the Goku comparison is figurative. He's likely and simply the first ki user to come to mind for most readers.

        Speaking of the Copper and Silver variants, Extra as I read it shouldn’t be the copper version in MHA because most people don’t have combat quirks and thus the average person is blue. Could I purposefully take the copper version to make a character that has a quirk? If so, do I get to pick it or should it hypothetically be random? (I know the author decides at the end of the day)

        "Copper Extra in MHA to get a quirk" is an intended use. The quirk itself is up to you. Ideally, it should be something that plausibly exists within the setting, but that's a narrative concern.

        No, I mean full conversion morphs have true forms and human forms, is the essence reactor required to exist within human form, or can it exist only in the morphs true form? Or am I misunderstanding something basic?

        I can only personally rate worlds that I know enough about, and even then it's more of an art than a science. If a world isn't on the list, you're expected to either use a thread search to find a previous rating for it or estimate it based on comparable worlds that have official ratings.

        Even the earliest versions at the very beginning of the rules doc's version history still separated "affinity" perks (not even renamed to talents yet) from the defense perks. Don't use the old versions if you can avoid it.

      SwiftRosenthal time for another round of 'ask Waifu Catalog questions'. Apologizes. If you visit a crossover universe, do you average it out (say one is 5 and the other is 7, does that make the combined universe a 6?). Also, what would you put Disgaea at? The waifus from there are mostly all 8s, so 8 or lower?

        SwiftRosenthal have you seen/watched The Vampire Diaries? If so, where would you place/rate it on the Waifu Catalog's World Ratings? I wanna say possibly 4 to 5 (given its a setting with magic users that can cast world spanning magics, but AFAIK, there's no super dangerous threats, beyond the vampire Originals and possibly the two True Immortals running around at the start of the series...)

        Shadowfire626
        Last I checked the way love spot worked was that while it is rooted in a single feature of the face, the Fate wiki, from which the ability/skill originates, specifies that it is cast/takes effect the moment the target looks upon the users face. Too answer your question, likely no, but until we get word of god you could run with that concept.
