    New Brand Crusaders OOC/PnP

    Post by Ippy on Fri Jul 11, 2014 12:25 am

    The Spirits and Demons campaign that has been long in the waiting is nigh.  I would to start as soon as possible, but first I will need an official roster of players and their characters.  So that we can begin setting your character in the world I ask you discuss your ideas with me, with the ultimate goal of setting you up for IC posts.  I would like to be at the ability-reviewing/editing stage within a week.  Hopefully we'll be even ready to play by next Friday.  I will elucidate further in the next few days, but do ask questions.

    Name: James
    Subrace: Mortal
    Theme Music
    Spoiler:
    (it's cool music, play it while you read.)

    Appearance: He is an average built man of average height. Plain face and appearance wise there is nothing that sticks out about this man. He wears dark britches and shoes that can be found in almost any town with a white lace up shirt underneath a long non-descript black coat.

    Personality: Cold, short, and no nonsense. James is a more a man of action than anything else, this does not mean he is rash however.
    He far from cocky and his ego is almost never seen, vanity and pride are a waste of time and can prove fatal in missions.
    Carful and meticulous; James makes back up plans for the back up plans of his back up plans. There are many things far stronger than he and the only way to make up the gap is with strategy.
    He cares little for social stereotypes and standing.
    A bullet sounds the same in every language and caste.

    Backstory: James was born in a land on the other side of the ocean. That land was in constant war and was one of many kids orphaned from all the fighting. With no one to care what happened to him he was taken by strange officials, given a uniform, and sent away to a special barracks so that he may “better serve” his countrymen. There he was taught, subterfuge, assassination, survival, and many other skills required to “better serve”. He eventually graduated from his training and received his Tools of the trade to begin his work. For 10 years James served, killing high profile targets, poising water supplies, framing political figures. Whatever task they set out for him was accomplished with brutal efficiency until his last mission where he simply vanished. Two years later he can be found living in a small village in Altare with most of the items in his Tott being farm equipment. If asked, his neighbors would say James is a cheery and a friendly if reserved person. The James that the villagers see is just an act… at least it was. The other day he realized he could slip into his friendly guise with no effort, and sometimes without realizing it when he was alone. Strange…

    10 Health. SP: 5 Dominion, 4 Ruin, 3 Action, 3 Consumption, 2 illusion, 3 Pacifism  0/89 exp

    8
    Agility rank D

    15
    Expertise C
    Parameters: Str: F, Agi D, Tgh F, Res F, Ext C, Att D

    7
    Attache
    Passive (Mechanic) D, Creation

    Description:
    It is a finite cache of weaponry and tools that resets its contents, both weapons and ammunition, every midnight.  Specifically, the tools are unmade and created at midnight.  Any and all untriggered traps set up are still considered part of the stock. While they may still remain during a reset, the total amount of tools in existence will not change.  The size of this cache is represented by James's stock parameter.  The tools that are eligible to be created this way are defined by James's other abilities.

    13
    Burst Canisters
    Defensive (Physics/Spirit) D, Ruin
    James hides these canisters all over his person. When attacked he pulls the pin and tosses it between him and his attacker. The Canister then lets out a forceful burst that knocks away physical attack and then implodes to absorb energy attacks. These canisters look like small round black balls.

    Weakness: Burst Canister is used up in process.

    15
    First aid Spray
    Utility (Heal, Alchemic) D, Creation

    Property: Enables First Aid Spray (2 stock)
    Minor weakness-: There is a 4 turn delay when healing Internal injuries
    Weakness: First aid spray is used up in the process

    4
    Calico Fire
    Offensive (Area, Physcial) F+, Ruin
    Applies suppression (physical debuff) for 1 round. If an entity moves while suppressed they take 2 damage. Offensives made by suppressed entities are dodged as if they were one grade lower.
    Property: Enables Calico (6 stock) and Calico Clip (2 stock)
    Minor Weakness: Requires Calico
    Weakness: 30 clip sized used in 10 bullet spray.  Minor action reload.
    Bonus: AOE (melee from target)
    Basic- Bonus: If Calico fire affects an entity out of cover, it deals 1 damage.

    James Fires a third of his clip from his Calico sub-machinegun at an area.


    Total Cost: 89


    Bro, it is really difficult to keep my point cost exactly at 89. Like three abilities have to be tweaked to get everything good.

    Can you be a beast but with multiple ancestry? Like a human/elephant/fish/bird thing?

    The beast have a max resistance cap of B but the cost to get resistance to a B is not listed.

    How much would self healing be? I talked about a really weak form of it before but I forgot what it would be. Like 1 HP every 4 rounds was what we talked about.

    Would permanently increasing Toughness like Strength be roughly the same cost? I think not but I don't know how much more. It has less utility than strength I think but plays in more with the whole "not dying" thing.

    How far can someone jump with respect to strength?

    @Elite:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16549035/Spirits%20and%20Demons/CharReview/Elite4.docx

    "Can you be a beast but with multiple ancestry?"
    -->It should mention somewhere that half-beasts are only capable of producing offspring with members of a similar breed.  A half-dog cannot breed with a human or half-fish.  Similarly, 'demonic beasts' are not a thing.

    "The beast have a max resistance cap of B but the cost to get resistance to a B is not listed."
    -->Beasts gain a free increase to resistance.  A beast who increased their resistance to C-grade would actually have a B-grade due to this increase (remember that the beast increases occur after any base costs).


    "How much would... 1 HP every 4 rounds... [be]."
    -->D+


    "How far can someone jump with respect to strength?"
    -->If you had a farmer jump as far as they could, that would be a F jump.  If you had a man who went to efforts to train their body jump that would be in the D range.  If you had an Olympic jumper do the same, that would be an expertise of C grade jump.  A strength of C represents a creature with the capacity to outperform the physical limits of a human jump, however, it is still an untrained, unfocused, out-of-form jump; it could be challenged by a human who knew how to jump very well.

    I feel it useful to note the non-effort to effort rule here (not described in any of the links I provided).  When you make an effort to perform a "skill" such as jumping, you will roll the dice in a fashion that I will specify mid-play (maybe I say it's a jump based on your agility plus one grade).  If you do not make an effort I will assume an absent-minded/automatic attempt which will have a smaller range of variability than the roll.

    There is no tight relationship between the rank of a creature's strength and the distance they can jump across.  If you're looking for C = 8ft no such table exists.  A creature may not be in the best of health when they perform a jump, muscles may suddenly cramp, confidence somehow becomes good form, fear inhibits the jump, a freak occurrence in the spirit world propels the creature miles rather than feet, etc.  Pseudorandomness will be employed for all attempts similar to a jump, and conditions will likewise be regarded.  To summarize, my goal is to avoid situations where you measure out a distance and realize "I can jump that I have a rank C in <insert something>," but rather have you hope you can cross the distance with the advantages that you do have.

    What about my toughness question?

    So a beast can only have one animal side is what im getting from this.

    And is there a lifting rate? I still cant grasp how strong a rank is besides an F.

    "What about my toughness question?"
    --> I missed it. Oops.

    "Would permanently increasing Toughness like Strength be roughly the same cost?"
    --> No, you're right when you assume it'll be more expensive. High strength is priced on its utility, high toughness its priced on that it invalidates the need of defensives of a grade lower against a fair portion of threats.

    "So a beast can only have one animal side is what im getting from this."
    --> Yes, but it isn't inconceivable that there are a few species in this fantasy world that do not exist on earth.

    "And is there a lifting rate? I still cant grasp how strong a rank is besides an F."
    -->As a loose guideline, think that the pinnacle of one grade represents the average of the next. F, at it's best, can lift what D strength would do with moderate effort (3+3=6).

    Backstory: Sorin was born into a guild that serves the God of Justice, Tolk, and carries out his will; he trained on how to properly dispose of demonic entities along with his brethren.

Sorin's latest assignment was to investigate the human ran Church of Altare. After a few weeks, Sorin discovered that the church had developed a new kind of magic: Holy Magic. He reported back to his superiors, who seemed very interested in this new kind of magic, even if it was human created.

    Backstory: Grew up under the servitude of a lord, known only as an orphan who showed prowess and abilities of a fighter at such a young age allowed the child to become a squire. Soon the child grew and became stronger than once thought he would reach, being a squire for the great knight of the land, he learned to be merciless and swift in his killings. The child began to show signs of his demonic birth and soon he was raced away from the land in which he grew. Zee Kal scoured the lands to find a place to call home, not being able to find any to call his own, now a teenager heading towards adult hood Zee Kal began learning his powers from which he came from and what he would be… Deaths Hand relieving people of their worthless lives as he saw fit feeding off of their energies. Zee one day was walking and a bandit stumbled upon him. Zee being the young age 13 had a sword with him that he had stolen when he left the Lord. The bandit sliced him on the spot, Zee being helpless laid there dying, Death then appeared and provided him a deal. Fight and kill in his name when called upon, and Zee would be saved, thats where he got his armor and lost the use of his arm. Zee upon reaching the age of 20 found a place where he could create a network of children who delivered him information from around the city. Zee found a place among the church, a place where his demonic side wasnt necessarily welcom but understood. Zee knew to keep his demon side contained but the ability to help others appeased his human side. Torn Zee finds some days harder than others for keeping his sides under control. 
    Sins: He felt himself drawn to the “sin” of lies and deceit, with murder at the end to fully quench his thirst.  Zee Kal was unable to discover the truth of his parents and his birth and sees his birth as the greatest deceit of all. He lives not fearing death but accepting it and allowing it to exist within him festering and protruding outwards upon the world slowly devouring it with his might.

    Zee, in his years of service as a squire, obtained training in the use of the long sword.  He is skilled enough with the weapon as to ignore its weight, enabling swift and lethal strikes.  However that is not enough for him, so he has engaged in an lifelong quest to better his deathly art.  Zee has an additional parameter called 'Long Sword Mastery (LSM)' which increases the damage of non-ability attacks delivered by long swords.

    Nusku

    Phoenix Clan Immortal

    Apperance:

    Theme Music:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCtQmwJ1WAY#t=13

    Backstory:
    Nusku Was the child of a high ranking Phoenix Clan member. Before he could receive the proper training to handle his ancestral power he witnessed the public execution of his father. His father had stood up against the recent raids on the local villages. He pleaded for morality and publicly opposed the decision of the Grand phoenix. He was quickly struck down. Nusku fled and became the clan's new number one target. No one left the clan alive. Their secrecy must be maintained. Fortunately during his grand exodus Nusku came across a wandering (Something from the church... like a priest... or a warband... or a trading caravan?) He pleaded for assistance but was struck down by an arrow from the shadows. After (Whoever i met) scouted the area and came up with zero results they decided to at least grant Nusku a proper burial. As soon as they touched the corpse, it bust into flames and quickly became a pile of ashes. A small ball of flame emerged from the ashes and spoke to the priest. He told the story of his father and the clan that had never been heard of. The man agreed to help this weird little emberling, and took the little flame home to live in his furnace. Soon after arriving at(wherever the hell the curch is) Nusku's Phoenix Rebirth ability(his immortality) was discovered after feeding the flame. Nusku was reborn in a bust of flames. Unfortunately the flames remained after his rebirth as his isolation began. Wanting a simple life away from violence, the church allowed him to become a blacksmith's apprentice and learn to shape metal.

He is covered head to toe in a black beetle carapace with the his back being a vibrant light blue that alomost glows with its own light. He has 3 large horns stick out of his forehead. When Mecail has sheds his carapace he looks just like a normal human in every way save for his giant size and short blue hair.

    Personality: Mecail is a loud and boisterous man who works hard and plays harder. He is the type of man his enemies call arrogant and stupid while his friends would say confident and determined.  He believes that nothing is impossible and that if you fail at something you just have to try harder to succeed.
    Background: Mecail hails from the Manslayer Marshes where he was born and raised. If asked about his village Mecail would say that it was the definition of boring. Everyone in the village lived by routine and no one shared his sense of adventure or wonderlust. Indead everyday was filled with elders complaining at him about silly things like, “Don’t surf on that crocodile” or “Stop trying to make a giant killer bee a pet”, it quickly got old. Mecail hungered for adventure, recognition, and greatness not this heavily ruled and monotonous life. So one night he just walked out of his hut and left to see what the world had to offer him.

    Back Story:
    Note was always bored as a child. He felt like something in his life was missing. One day he heard a man playing strange sounds from a weird stick with holes in it and his body was filled with passion. He didn't understand what that sound was for music didn't have a name to it at the time. He approached the man and begged for him to teach him the ways of music. Many, many years have passed since then and now Note had traveled all across the land playing his music. He was starting to lose the passion for only love. He was drinking at a tavern when a robed man took a seat next to him and questioned him why he was looking so down. Note explained to him his sorrows and the man began talking to him about God. Note listened to every word this man had to say and began to get that feeling back. He began to wonder if God liked music. That maybe one day he could play his music for God. This was now his dream and he would do anything he could to make it happen

    I've done some math wrong. If you made a D grade ability based on the flat costs presented in Example Abilities.doc (cost 17), that ability is 2 experiance cheaper (actual cost 15). The same applies for D- and D+ abilities.

    BACK UP CHARACTER
    Name: Xerbane Ferris
    Subrace: Human (Demon-Blooded)

    Theme Music:
    Spoiler:

    Str F (C), Agi C (+20 XP), Tgh F, Res F, Ext F, SpS F

    Background: Xerbane was born from the unholy union of his mother and a demon of wrath. Growing up was hard for Xerbane as it was hard to keep any social relations intact. Fits of rage and contempt were every day occurrences. His mother had him pulled from all education programs and, to her dismay, had to deal with his fits single-handedly. His father, being a demon, had left long ago (his mother was probably raped during an "indulgence"). As Xerbane drew closer to puberty, the stress he had endured over the years caused him to lose all control of his emotions; at one point he went into a rage that destroyed his small home and almost killed his mother. The village people gathered and unanimously decided that it was best to send Xerbane away; he was taken to a monastery with the hopes that the local monks could help him. Through the guidance of the monks after a few years, Xerbane finally grasped control of his anger. However, being half-demon, there are times when he has to succumb to his father's passed down quality; [to be continued]
