I spent most of the last week playing Factorio. Might need a day or three to catch up on everything I missed here. Dec 15, 2020

      Is a waifu’s cost based on their base tier, or their effective tier?

      Hi. Recently discovered the Waifu Catalog, and after reading the rules and draft I found there's no Tier 11 world listed. How do I start a Danger 11 build?

      Hey I noticed Jubilee from X-Men is missing in the catalog. Do you think you can add her?

      Hey, SwiftRosenthal, a couple more Waifu Catalog questions (apologizes in advance if they have been asked already): Does gaining a Falna (from DanMachi) boost your Waifu Tiers up at all? Not really depending on level, just having a Falna. And 2, where does Buffy fall on the World Ratings? I'm thinking 3 or 4 for the most part but possibly 6 or 7 for the higher end stuff (comics) and Big Bad and apocalypse stuff?
    7. Heaven Canceler

      Heya Swift, just had a quick question. If you get a Waifu to do the love confession, do they immediately get the full mental effects of "trust, love loyalty" etc.. or does it ramp up normally over 72 hours still?
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        The "full mental effects" have largely already happened at that point. They *are* sincerely in love with you, after all (otherwise it wouldn't trigger).

        It can be "assisted" by any means and still count. That's been RAW for a long time.

      How does the "personal effective tier" rule for heritages work?

      2. Jordisk
        Jordisk
        The root level of every Heritage so far is 100 credits, does that count as one of the Heritage Perks and thus push you to T7? Worse, the lowest-cost heritage perk (in the Transhuman tree) costs 30 credits, putting you at T5, literally one credit away from T6.
        Jan 3, 2021
      3. Jordisk
        Jordisk
        There is no way to cost less than 100 credits if the Root perk counts, and no way to cost less than 30, more likely to be higher, if the Root perk doesn't count.
        Jan 3, 2021
      4. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        Root perks count. The values for T6 and below don't matter for the two current heritages, but the root perks for later ones might be low enough to require them.

      Yet another question regarding Waifu Catalog (apologizes if its been asked before), but for Dragon Thrall (the one where you can turn others into dragons by having them ingest or take huge loads of Jizz) does it have to be done in Dragon Form or can you do it in an alternate form? Like, say, your base Human form?

      Another Waifu Catalog question (Sorry, but its such an interesting CYOA concept)... does Destiny Defense work against Coil's powers? I know its supposed to be some form of pre/post cog (and that would allow Trace Defense to protect against it) but I'm not sure which defense his power will bounce off of (if such a defense exists).

      Sorry if this has been asked before, but where exactly does Harry Potter (series) fall on your Waifu Catalog's Danger Rating scale. Yes, I checked, its no longer on there for some reason... would it be 4 or 5 since that's what the named characters are at Tier wise?

        Only your own personal age limit. If the target is under it, they become a familiar instead. Temporal Calibration lets you bypass this by going to a version of HP where "Hogwarts First Year" is 17-18 instead of 10-11.

        Ah, okay. Thanks. I only ask because my one exposure to Waifu Catalog (apart from looking over the rules and doc) suggest that there is an age limit in place. I'm assuming there is no age restriction for purchases?

        You can always just fanwank that you bought an older version of a too-young character or younger version of a too-old character, unless the older and younger versions of a character have different entries/waifu perks. Most current examples of that are Nasuverse Servants.

        In retrospect, the premise was always S-class QQ bait, even from the first economy CYOA. I just kept a rapid update cycle and treated it more like a TTRPG, with defined, consistent (at least in theory) rules for sustained play - which is obviously what long-form fanfic authors need.

      "You receive one new choker each day, up to a limit in reserve of 5 or the number of chokers you’ve used, whichever is greater."
      Does this mean that you are capped at 5 max(5, or the maximum number of chokers you can use at any one time, which is 5), or is the second one meaning that the number of UNUSED ones that you can stock up is equal to five or the amount of USED ones? Thus allowing more to be gained past 5?

        Second question: the genderswap, mental identification, orientation, bimboification thing mentioned for clients - is this meant to imply that these effects can be imposed on waifus too? And other modifications to physical and mental state as well?

      Does the Waifu Catalogue have a gender bender listing? I ask because Naruko is cute and someone I was talking with about it reminded me of that fact. Half hoping to add her to potential harem.

        I think we're passing each other in the conversation. My core issue is not knowing a given character's Tier is as stated by the catalogue, and not knowing how to calculate such, which is why I asked after the fact if there was a male half or something that could be used or not.
