Would it be alright to post the K6BD RPG playtest booklet here?

I got it off of a /tg/ thread that Abbadon was posting in, so I imagine he's cool with it leaking outside of his patreon.

Woah, so she doesn't have Earth's key, she has the loving skeleton key.

This is way more disruptive than we thought.

Also, so he massacred the prime angels in the void after he broke their bodies? Does that mean they're dead-dead? What about 2-Michael, wasn't he a prime? Was he the only survivor?

...was he a coward? Did he run?

I love how everyone is assuming that she's not the actual heir. Oh, it's obviously her boyfriend, right?

Also, the RPG needs better stat names for the first few. "Strength" and "Skill" are lame, but "Wrath" and "Art" are cool.

Demons are beings born of the Hot Black Flame, one of the four pieces of God. They are typically violent and destructive and crave conflict. Mortals summon them into existence by giving them masks and many names, which define them and limit them. As they make deals and grow in power, they gain finer masks and fewer names, which make them stronger and less limited, though they tend to change drastically over their existences. Ebon devils, the rarest and most powerful, have only one name.

e: Oh wait, that's devils. Probably the same.

"I Dare."

As far as the main characters roles I kinda figured like both of them were the Heir, like she is the Heir "Accepting" while his is the Heir "Dismissive", Her soul form is shown as dark/black which is similar to the feminine aspect of YISUN in being colored darkly. Her "boyfriend"'s soul form is as yet unseen but I assume it is light/white. The feminine or dark soul seems to represent existence while the white or masculine soul represents a non-existence or similar paired concepts. I would honestly love if the ultimate plot was a rejection of dualism followed by an acceptance of some sort of seven-fold path state of universal being.

I also love anything that seems to be Elder Scrolls esque CHIM philosophy.

Reach Heaven Through Violence seems to have originated in the sword manual of the person who said before mastering the sword you should first master sweeping, drawing water, writing, making paper, POETRY writing, house building and then after you've built a house give the gently caress up on mastering the sword because swords are dumb and only used by dumb people. So, I'd personally hesitate before assuming it's good and literal advice that's the key to the entire comic.

No, it's the core tenet ofYISUN's teachings and its use by Meti was sincere. Remember that the most exalted of YISUN's saints was an aggressive, ignorant, unsightly woman who defeated philosophers and kings by refusing to comprehend them and just smashing through all obstacles. Remind you of anyone?

Made humans, too! "But it is certainly known that the children of Aesma’s Mistake would go on to be powerful indeed, and exceptionally foolish. It was their race, after all, that tamed that Hot, Black Flame, and in doing so, brought the first of our kin into the world."

It's probably black like hers unless he was secretly a Servant this whole time; all of humanity was crafted from the Warm Black Flame and casts a black shade.

She also says that there is no such thing as a sword, so a literal reading might be counterproductive.

I think the purpose of that passage is that adherents to the sword are idiots.
That Meti is advising becoming an adherent of the act of cutting, independent of the means.

So what's that alt-text supposed to mean? That 6 Juggernaut Star actually wants to get rid of all the Demiurges and install a new King? If I'm interpreting things right, the Breaker of Divinities is Zoss and it seems like 6 Juggernaut Star was the one to have struck the finishing blow as the Thorn Knight who lopped his head off looks like 6 in armor.

E: also, I don't think I've seen it mentioned yet but I'm pretty sure I've seen Abbadon post here (although I can't remember his user name), so K6BD can be added to the list of goon created webcomics as well.

knights mendicant are broadly similar to the old cliche of the itinerant beggar-monk, so of course its not advisable to gently caress with them.

e. also, her full name is something like Maya Kill the Gods and Topple Their Thrones.

e2. of course, Allison now has the surname Kill Six Billion Demons bestowed on her by Zoss, so maybe theyre not all that important
