    Am I the only one who actually misses a lot of the filler?

    Some of it I miss. Like Gohan's time with the orphans. I thought that was an important part of his early characterization and showing the lengths he'll go to for those he befriends.

    I find myself missing most of it honestly, it's especially bad when they show the aftermath of something that happened in the cut filler.

    Recently, I've been told to check out Hajime no Ippo, as I'm told it's a Shounen Fighting Anime with no combat-filler. No stupid cutaways to other peoples' reaction shots for six episodes straight, no ridiculous rehashing of what's obviously just happened seconds ago, etc etc. I'm interested to see if this is true.

    Ah, yes. I forgot that, in Asia, all American females are belligerent and/or prostitutes. I needed the refresher.

    I've not seen any food or cooking-themed martial arts, but honestly, somebody's probably homebrewed one already. Cook Fu is a very old trope.

    ...that is not true. Its excellent but and does move faster than old DBZ fights but there are a lot of flashbacks. Thankfully most of them are explaining the characters' backstory or motivations.
    "78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature."
    I really haven't. The players quickly move to the tavern after the campaign starts but they never start there. Even the three which have taken place in a city.

    heh, a good parody of Shonen is just to take a bunch of character near the end of the series then have them tell how the entire story happened through flashbacks, with them arguing over what happened during the fights, then for them to face the final enemy- who then says "but first let me tell you my backstory..." they say "NOOOO!!!" and it ends right there.

    How about this idea for a Defiler:

    A kind and compassionate Physician, the defiler devoted everything to her patients and always gave it her best to try to heal them, and even if she lost them she knew she did her best. She had a husband, a loving family, and good career. Life was looking good, and her children would be well provided for.

    Until their town was raided by Barbarians. There was no provocation, it was simple savagery and dominance through violence. Many people were killed, and most people in the town were wounded before the Barbarians were driven off. Amongst those dead numbered her spouse, and amongst the wounded numbered one of her children.

    She knew with a single glance that her child's wound was fatal, that there were many other wounded that could use medicinal aid and could survive with help, that she would save so many more lives by spending her talents elsewhere, but she had to try. And so she failed to save her child's life, and as the rumor spread about the choice she had made, about all the families she had damned to lose a loved one even when she knew her efforts were useless, she fell deeper and deeper into despair.

    But then came a demon with an offer. An offer to give the power to fix the world and set it right, to make sure that things like this never happened again, and even if they did that she would be able to fix it...

    The only Infernal I've got in my game so far: the Narrator. She hasn't narrated so much recently, but that's who she introduced herself as, speaking directly into the PCs heads. It was later revealed that she'd actually just jury-rigged a telegraph onto their strands in the Loom of Fate. No one's really sure how she managed to do it, but it probably would involve a custom expansion to Loom-Snarling Deception or spirit Charms learned from her god father...who's also the godfather of Great Forks: "God of Honest Gangsters". Narrator, an Adorjan-favored Fiend, has recently been stalking the party by arriving at their intended destination before they do.

    The rest of the info is spoilered because one of my players reads this thread.

    Her Motivation is to replace the Incarna with members of her Family, though at the moment she's preoccupied with making sure her Abyssal son (one of the current villains) doesn't blow up Creation. She faked her own death years ago, though, so she uses the unaware PCs as proxies.

    Her Adorjani Urge is to convince the Scarlet Empress to love her husband...to death, and she has an Intimacy of scorn towards the Ebon Dragon. If she succeeds, she intends to defect to Szoreny, and she usually vents Limit using Best Enemy Recognition or Exquisite Bride Obsession on her adopted son's biological father, a Chosen of Secrets akuma of Szoreny.

    Yeah, I plan out my NPC relationships like a bad soap opera. Obviously it was the butler who killed her son...and he immediately Exalted as a Solar for his heroism.

    Right. She is loyal. She just also really hates the Ebon Dragon (sees him as a crooked gangster) and would rather his position be given to Szoreny (an honest gangster). She doesn't actually know about the Silver Forest's plans for escaping by himself. For now, she generally hangs out with Jacint.

    Right, right, suppose you make a good point; even the most fanatic of my PCs agree on one thing: Ebby is a total jerk.

    Meal Ticket(Artifact ●●●)
    Created by a... rather eccentric twilight during the first age, these artifacts may create loyal monsters from the most unlikely of things: Food.
    Meal Tickets have no attunement cost, and may be used simply by placing them onto the desired dish and paying 5 motes. As long as these motes are committed, the food is converted into a monster, created by adding mutation points equal to the successes on the craft(water) roll that created the dish to a mundane creature. None of the base creature's attributes or abilities may exceed the successes on the craft roll.
    If the food-monster created by the ticket is destroyed, the motes are instantly uncommitted, and the creature's body melts away in moments to reveal the Meal Ticket.

    As a sidenote, even unenlightened mortals may use Meal Tickets by committing a dot of permanent willpower in place of motes.

    Man, I must be bored. This thing is probably a bit broken/weak, seeing as I wrote it up in about 5 minutes.
