Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
First OOC post, unsurprisingly by me.

I'd like to wait for everyone to get their characters in, but truth be told I've decided on some of them already.  I know the players well, and their characters are solid.

There's room left and I'll wait a little longer before deciding that.  I tell you, I've received some really, really nice submissions, and it's going to be hard deciding.  So far, every one has been a winner.  I wish I could have more than five players, but that's my limit for a sustained campaign (which this will be).

Any players who don't get in...I'll be keeping their RTJ's and pinging them if someone drops out.  I don't know if they'll still be interested, but I'd rather ask people who have taken the time to make up a great character than simply re-open the game for RTJ's.

My wife is sick, so I'm staying home today.  Still, I'll be able to enter 3/5 of the people.  I'm still deciding on the other two.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
We can only hope.  :)

Though given the GM's comment that in some cases it will be obvious what race people are, we have to assume there'll be some more distinct races within the party.

Also, so far we're 100% short.  So if we get a mission requiring us to retrieve an object from a high shelf, we could be in trouble.  I have put no points into "Standing on a Box" as a Secondary Ability so far.

Lovely to meet you anyway, Vilhelm!  ;)

Asher are pretty easy to pin down. They're the only ones with pale skin and dark hair.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
I can see why you put a lot of thought into planning all Tasha's levels, Sharp. I've worked it out so that I'm getting a Martial Art every level while still mostly maxing my ATK and DEF. It should be pretty cool, at least until you tell me I messed up my math somewhere. :)

Level 10 Adell vs. Level 10 Tasha would probably be a VERY interesting fight. (although I'd prefer to face someone who didn't conceivably have all the same bennies I could have. :P )

It's a tricky process.  :)

The problem with a level 10 Tasha is that she's not just a martial artist, she spams Dominion techniques.  I'm 100% certain that Adell will be a better 'pure' martial artist than her, though.  The HDS just use their martial arts as the delivery system for the upper-level techs.  :)

Level 10 Tasha makes armies go kaboom.  Or mountains.

It might be an even fight in terms of combat skills (apart from Tasha's utterly monstrous HTH damage), but then turn 3 happens and BOOM!!

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
One must remember that she's not going to use her 'kill large groups of peons' techniques on a single, skilled fighter.  :)

Let's see...at level 10, she's spamming Tier 1 and 2 techniques every round and looses a Tier 3 after 2 rounds.  With an additional +35 on all her rolls on top of the Dominion Tech bonuses AND the Orochi bonus.

So her first technique is a (total bonus) +135 attack that grants her an additional +20 to further attacks if it causes any damage.

If that hits, she'll probably go with a (total bonus) +155/+75 autocritical attack next.

Alternately, she waits a round (maximum) and fires off a +180/x4 Damage/Autocrit attack (it has a small area affect, but that's unimportant against a single person).

Having said that, someone like Adell isn't going to be just standing there waiting for her to do this, and is pretty darned dangerous in his own right, so it's kind of an interesting fight (especially since I know where Adell is heading with his character... :).

I presume the key saving grace for Adell is going to be what he mentioned in the other game.   Initiative.  Just keep hitting Tasha first.

But if Tasha decides to go all Absorb Hits upside Adell's head, it could be nighty-night.

Of course, from the PoV of the game, I hope Adell is an absolute boss, combat-wise.  Could be very useful for the party.  :)

That's pretty much it.

Not going to be easy, given Tasha's high defensive bonus (bonus over and above her Block).  But I assume that Adell, even if not a Technician, will have SOME Ki dominions by that point himself, which will make things a lot more even.

He'll be a solid fighter-type, I suspect.  :D

GM:

Well I was making a few assumptions (Which admittedly favored Adell), like they were both starting with no powers pre-activated, and no KI Pre-accumulated.

If Tasha already has Berserker, Orachi Rage, and two different forms of Transforms turned on, Adell might be a LITTLE out of his league physically. (he MIGHT still have a chance though, as Trasform: Physical Power slows you WAY down. Then he'd just have to keep moving away from her and getting her to chase him until her Orachi Rage dropped her.)

Well yeah, but Adell's going to get some Ki tricks of his own (hopefully). If I can't get at least Big Bang by Level 10, I'll be disapoint.

Adell's damage will be nothing to snear at by Level 10.

He ALREADY hits harder than a mace and gets more bonuses.


Serafyna Wiselzjka:

Not totally.

He'll also have a bunch of "Inflict huge penelties on your opponent" moves that do full damage AND cause massive penelties.

quote:
But if Tasha decides to go all Absorb Hits upside Adell's head, it could be nighty-night.


The problem would be if Adell ended with a Trip, she would be at -30 to all her combat actions and Adell would get a +20.

Unless she has some kind of Kip-up technique or breakdance-style spinning ground move, that should cost her an action to overcome.


If he ends with a Grapple, she gets a peneltly based on how badly Immobalized she is.

And as she put all her points into POW, she's not going to have the DEX or STR to break it until she rocks a Transformation.

And of course all those come with full damage as well as actually penalizing her.

quote:

If I think he even stands a CHANCE against Tasha in HtH, he's either the best fighter I've made in the Anima system, or I'm hillariously over confident.

In reply to Adell (msg # 19):

Transformation: Physical Power?!  Tasha?

Since when?

We all know about The Awakening, but I can't see any real point in Tasha getting Physical Power, primarily because her damage isn't Strength-based.  Other than Eliodon, I'd have said that was about the LEAST likely transformation for Tasha (apart from not having Blood of the Dragon, but... even still!).

Plus, Transformations are expensive.  You have to think twice before dumping all those DP and MK points into ONE, let alone TWO!!

I dunno, I was just going with 2 different Transformations, and that one actually boosted Strength (to resist grapples).

30 DP and 50 MK. That's one level for Tasha. :)

But my point was no starting with powers up.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Serafyna is correct - Tasha is only going for one Transformation (Pssst...Eliodon is Blood of the Great Beasts, Dragon gives the Seals).

Plus, Transformations (logically) don't stack.  :)

Adell:

(he MIGHT still have a chance though, as Trasform: Physical Power slows you WAY down. Then he'd just have to keep moving away from her and getting her to chase him until her Orachi Rage dropped her.)


A couple of comments on this, though I'm not saying Adell level 10 would be over his head.

1.  While the Orochi power takes a round to 'gear up', Nine Dragons Sing to Heaven (aka: The Awakening) does not.  Tasha activates it at the start of her turn, and gets all the benefits on the first turn.  It's a passive action.

2.  Tasha doesn't have Berserker.  :)

3.  Tasha wouldn't have 'Transform: Physical Power'.

4.  At level 10, she can basically fire off her Tier 1 techs - including the defensive one - in the first round.

GM:
Well yeah, but Adell's going to get some Ki tricks of his own (hopefully). If I can't get at least Big Bang by Level 10, I'll be disapoint.


Please don't call it 'Big Bang'.  That's a request.  Seriously, this is Anima (I wonder about the translations of some of these video games, I'm sure it's better in japanese).

Dude is going to be impressive, no doubt about it.  Again, I'm not entirely sure Tasha would score a win off him if he can dish out enough punishment in round one.

This is it.  Adell will come with all kinds of options that, thanks to a maxed out Attack/Defend, will be potentially workable against Tasha on Round One, especially if he wins initiative (and he probably will) assuming she has zero time to prepare.

Granted, at level 14 she starts laughing at grapples and trips, but that's at level FOURTEEN.  :)  And Adell will be busting out his own Arcane Advanced Arts at that point.  ^_^

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Though I'm not surprised people THINK Tasha has 'Berserker'.  Sadly, she doesn't.  Players get to choose when they slap Berserker up and running.

When Tasha goes bonkers, it's because something critical has happened and Siriel says 'Will roll, pleaz', and (every darned time) Tasha fails it.

I know.  :)

I meant that she wouldn't have Eliodon, and even though she doesn't have Blood of the Dragon, The Seals would STILL be more likely than Physical Power.  Like Physical Power is THAT unlikely.  Wasn't clear though, I'll grant you....  ;)

(I did however boob in one of my reasons for her not having Physical Power - the damage boost has nothing to do with Strength.)

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Ahhh...now I understand.

Dragon Seals are one of those things I don't advise for Techs, Tao, and people like that.  Dominions work better for them.  But a Warrior/Acrobatic Warrior with the Dragon Seals, a Weaponmaster with the Dragon Seals, a Shadow with the Dragon Seals...

...a Warrior Mentalist with the Dragon Seals (gags)...

Oh, those work quite well.

Adell, armies are level 2-4 people. Soldiers are level 2, Professional Soldiers are level 3 and Elite Soldiers are level 4.

Of course, they're usually not comparable to PCs of the same level.

In reply to GM (msg # 27):

Oh, I dunno.  It takes a while to get all the way there, but by the time all the Gates are opened, you've got +5 to all Physical characteristics and Power.

It could be argued that this gives you a whole bunch more Ki to spend, and more KA in 5 out of the 6 KA attributes.

Of course the GM could just throw a big "NO!" on that idea. ;)

Do Nat Bonuses you get scale if you boost the Attribute the Skill is based on at a later level?

Like if at Level 1 I put a Natural bonus in Acrobatics, and then at Level 2 I boosted Agility. Would the previously bought Natural Bonus go up by 5 or would I keep track of what it was when I got it?

Serafyna Wiselzjka:

That.  Maybe the accumulation (would need to search the rules), but getting more Ki by spending it?  Nope.  Artificial increases to an attribute don't provide more Ki, any more than actually upping a stat with the Ki ability does.  :)

And it costs a large amount of Ki to get those bonuses.  And if you're getting that big +5 to all your stats, you're passing out and dying afterward (don't forget what happens when you open Gates 4 and 5).

The entire bonus doesn't really stack up well against having a massive attack/damage Ki dominion at all, or multi-attack Ki dominion, or whatever, and even getting to that point costs 2 + 4 + 6 = 12 Ki just to get to Door #3, on the 3rd round, and pouring out 6 Ki a round.

Whereas a Technician says "I don't have time for that, I have to activate my insanely powerful and focused Ki dominion on the first round that'll flat-out kill my opponent."

:)

Now, someone like a Warlock or Psychic Warrior who is unlikely to EVER get Ki Dominions or spend points on accumulation?  It rocks the house, because it's passive so it doesn't take away from them firing spells/psychic powers.  The Psychic Warrior in my tabletop game is insanely potent with the Dragon Seals.

Even a fighter-type (or Tao) who chooses to avoid Ki dominios could go far with it.

But for someone using Dominions, it eats Ki that would likely be better used elsewhere.

Milage may vary, mind.  :)

There's a limit, but it's a pretty distant limit, yes.  :)

On a 100% damage roll.  That's what I'm saying.  If their attack/defend are anywhere near par, it's unlikely he's going to get close to a 100% damage on any of his hits, barring blind luck.

When attack and defend are close to par, it's more likely to be 'you got 10% damage.'

In the words of Ralph Wiggum, that's unpossible!


No,no no. That was my Level 10 guy (although if sharp wants to give me a 110 Damage Martial Art at Level 1 You won't hear ME complaining. (Except about how I never get to use it becase this is a diplomatic game, maybe. :P ) )

No.  Bonus is frozen at that level.


Where's that from?  I don't recall ever seeing a ruling either way.

Actually, despite my somewhat over-authoratative tone, it's just common sense to me.  *shrugs*

You get a Natural Bonus at a specific level.  It doesn't seem to make a lot of sense that you can just "up" your Level 1 Natural Bonus just because you've now hit Level 4 and your attribute's gone up 2 points.

Also, how is Tasha STILL the most discussed character here, in a game SHE'S NOT EVEN IN?!!  XD

Big Bang is just...okay, go read the Sample Ki Dominion section in Dominus Exxet.  That's your homework.  :)


Oh like nailing them to a cross and then stabbing them 8 times is cooler than that.

Or do you just want a silly psuedo-Latin (or Japanese) name for it?

I mean Big Bang at least implies your hitting them with enough force to kickstart a Universe. What does Samui or Kyrie Elesion even mean??

It only moves you two squares (I'd say 10 feet) in the game but it does it by punching you ALL THE WAY AROUND THE WORLD in a decaying orbit until you crash right behind the puncher.

Or massive penelties. A score of 10% on a no-Armor hit is good enough to trigger the effects of any of the moves, and then she's eating the appropriate penelties for the next hit.

I guess we'll see when they both hit level 10.  :)


Without Taran to hurry it along, I don't think Sireil actually thinks we'll go all the way to 10. So poor Tasha will only be Level 6 or so. *evil grin*

You'll be happy to know that I do it the other way, which is a nice advantage to the players.  :)  One of the few I give.

I figure if someone is naturally talented at something, and their natural ability increases, that natural talent does as well.  :)

Milage may vary, of course.  In another game, it might very well be different, and I'd understand why.

Nope.  But...

Not in the Anima universe.  See, there's no 'Big Bang' theory in the Anima universe.  So there, 'Big Bang' means...just that.  A big bang.

You want 'kickstart a universe' explosion?  Call it Genesis or something.

Or go Pseudo-Latin and make it 'Fiat Lux' (though that one is taken.

I know it works that way for Grappling. A hit that would do at least 10% Damage ignoring armor is good enough to trigger a Grapple check. If you want to do damage at the same time, Armor Value applies for Calculating how much damage you would do. But once he gets the grapple applied, how immobalized you are depends on the reletive Stat rolls (with modifiers based on the damage you would have done at Armor 0). So a 10% no armor hit would be good enough to give you penelties for the NEXT hit if Adell rolled well on the stat roll.



I THINK it works that way for sweeps and stuff too, but I admit I haven't read up on the tripping rules as much.

The problem with that is people will kill him before he can shout the name out.  :)

Assuming he has to.  Smart people don't.  :D

You're correct about grappling. It's just that without 100%, the person being grappled gets a +3 on their stat check.  Which, given Adell's skill and abilities, isn't going to give them an advantage - it'll just give them a small chance.  :)

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Time for me to guess your classes.

Adell - Tao.
Giovanna - Given that she's either blind or blinds herself, either a Technician, Mage or Psychic. Mage is unlikely because most of their spells still need to aim and their methods to bypass Blindness can't be used quickly. Technician is also unlikely given that half of Blindness' penalty would stay and she would have had to rush Ki Detection which would eat up points that could go into buying early techniques, so the only way I could see her choosing a level 1 Technician is if she was blinding herself because of a bloodline. My bet is on Psychic.
Samuel - The disdain for rings and the bare-knuckle boxing point to a bare-handed fighter. So either Tao or Technician. A Tao would be a better hand-to-hand fighter at first level, so that's my bet.
Serafyna - Hardest of the lot. Her small size indicates low Constitution and Strength or the Uncommon Size advantage. (5' means either a 12 or 13 total.)
Given who I suspect her player of being, Pure fighters or skill monkeys are unlikely. With pure fighters eliminated, the odds of Uncommon Size drop. I also have my doubts on pure Psychics and Mages.
The specification of leather gloves indicates a fighting class. A fighter without high Strength and Constitution would be a Tao/Technician using a Power-based build. Alternatively, a Warrior Mentalist. Taking my suspicions on the player's identity into account, I judge Technician the most likely.

Thou wouldst be wrong in my case, Sir Lydia.  :)

Adell's pretty clear about his class.  Tao.
Giovanna, I'd agree is a Mentalist.
Samuel.... I think a Warrior Mentalist.... maybe.  Difficult to gauge, but I'll go with that.
And Vilhelm?  Oh, I dunno.  I have a kind of Wizardy-Warlocky inkling, but I couldn't say for sure.  I'm definitely getting Mystic though. It's just that I could be totally wrong.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
You two are correct, Giovanna is indeed a Mentalist.

As for the others:

–Adell is obviously a Tao
–Samuel… hmm, I'll go with Vilhelm's assessment and guess Tao as well
–Serafyna is hard to gauge. Her small frame has me guessing something that doesn't require strength, unless she has Uncommon Size. If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say either Illusionist or Summoner. I'm probably way off.
–Finally, for Vilhelm, no clue. Maybe an Assassin or perhaps Thief? Total shot in the dark there.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
It's actually not Parisien... :D  But you're in the ballpark.

Your choice as to what you're 'on'.  If you have a horse, that.  If not, you're probably spending your days atop a wagon - literally.  All of the wagons in M. Baptiste's train are fully covered - think boxcarts or gypsy homes rather than open carts or pioneer ones.

Most people own two - one to live in, one that carries their stuff and opens up into a 'storefront'/stall, so to speak.

If you guys WANT to be on the same wagon, you certainly can.  You won't be on a wagon with any of the actual soldiers, due to there being more than two-dozen wagons and six groups of two soldiers atop different wagons spread out across the entire train.  ^_^

So -

1.  Your own horses.
2.  You sit atop a wagon.
3.  You walk very quickly.

Basically, you're paying for the following:

1.  Somewhere safe to camp at night (with these people, under a very strong guard).
2.  A ride, but not a comfy one.
3.  Food.

If you have decent persuades or the like, it's possible someone like Mildred would have loaned you a pillow to help being atop the wagon all day long.

...you can possibly see how you end up rather tired at the end of the day, without a lot of energy for chatting it up with everyone, etc.  ^_^

Fortunatly for Adell, he can fall into the 'walk quickly' at least as well as a heavily loaded wagon train. And despite the amount of ground covered, he'll still have time for practice.

They're more Hungarian/Romanian accent.  They would say 'Go mit dot guy', whereas Ambrose would say 'Go wit' dat guy!'.


Accents are difficult to do correctly in prose, and the only reason I'm doing one now is because M. Baptiste's is so outrageous.

A secret?  I just assumed the name Vilhelm was a derivation of the German name Wilhelm (same pronunciation) which is their version of William.

And the almost feminine features?  If it was a woman, you'd hope the features would be ENTIRELY feminine and it would go without saying.

The players will have one chance to make changes to their characters - that's coming up soon.  After a 'shakedown' bit for everyone to see how their characters are working out, you'll get a shot at altering what you feel needs altering (not, for example, something that will be taken care of when you go up a level, but something intrinsic to the character that just didn't work out).

Some bad news.

That's your only change.  After that, you're stuck with whatever you pick for the character later on.

Question before we start rolling dice. When we roll, is this like Sierel's game, where you want us to leave off our modifiers, do you want us to include our modifiers, or do you not really care either way??

ALso the mention of modifiers made me think. If you have significant speed/movement, and you're fighting someone, can you move around behind them during your turn to get the "Attack from Behind" bonus?

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
If you want, make a Notice roll (which is allowable as a passive action and takes nothing from your round) and I'll tell you what you see.

These people are popping up and loosing arrows from within the shadows of the trees, when it's pretty bright outside said trees.  Details aren't just there to be had.  But with a sufficiently high notice roll...

...or you could spend an action on a 'Search' roll, as well.

Nope.

That takes either a very high acrobatics roll (like...VERY high, to the point where if you can pull it off, you might as well just kill the guy normally, because you're already pretty much above him in every way) or an actual Ars Magnus.

There IS an Ars Magnus that involves blurred, invisible movement to give someone 'flank' or 'from behind' bonuses.  But nobody here qualifies for it right now.

Edit: Also, an Instantaneous Motion dominion technique that is paired with an Attack Bonus can be used as an attack to get a shot at someone's back.

Well "Archers" alone gives me a strategy and a different feel to how I describe his actions. I suppose a Notice check wouldn't HURT though, as it's passive.

Ludicrous rolling so far.  Three people rolled, and we already have three open rolls.  That's about as many as the total in the other game combined, Avy notwithstanding.

But my counter-attack will bomb so badly it'll leave me open for a counter-counter-attack, which I'll block with enough Defense for a counter-counter-counter attack. And THAT roll will bomb with enough that the other guy gets a counter-counter-counter-counter-counter attack!! Which again gets blocked!!

I didn't think you needed to.  I just thought an Initiative Fumble just did the following:

1)  It means you go dead last in the turn (unless somebody else fumbles).
2)  Depending on whether you fumbled with a 1, 2 or 3 you apply a modifier to your base initiative for the purposes of calculating Surprise.  But I think, with a 3, that modifier is zero.

No rules in front of me though, so that could all be total arse-biscuits.

Cool.  I forget most of the rules.

And Gio, you are the luckiest person EVAH!  You go from rolling a 1(!) to re-rolling for some reason and getting yet ANOTHER open roll.  o_0

She rolled a 1 on a d20, hence the reroll.

But yes, still fortunate.

Ooh, I missed that.

But that's 4 important (useful) open rolls inside a week.  Truly Karma Inc works for her.

Have no fear fair protector, as long as I get attacked his efforts will be for nothing because I'm fantastically invincible this turn, having finally rolled above 50.

If you get attacked I shall save you, thus destroying Samuel's self-esteem forever.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
It's interesting to note that every single one of the players is contributing to the battle, and yes, the contributions are valuable.

Except Serafyna, obviously, but she's doing something else that's important.  :)

1.  Vilhelm has changed the entire tone of the battle.
2.  Giovanna has dealt with at least two people, and likely prevented Adell from getting REALLY badly hurt.  Which leads to...
3.  Adell has messed up the timing of the reinforcements attacking the wagons (stalling a group from attacking) and taken three people out of the battle.
4.  Samuel has saved the life of one guard (who, thanks to Vilhelm, is currently charging back out of the wagon feeling much better now, thank you) and (this part is actually quite important) not only kept Vilhelm from getting attacked by two people when he's really, really not up to that kind of things, but taken the pressure off him when it would have been disastrous for him to get hit.

All of these things are rather important.  :)

OK, the Bandits they aren't REALLY bandits. OK, they are, but they're actually agents from a rival empire to disrupt the Trade of this glorious empire. :P

Then once they've taken a serious fincial lead over this one, they'll try for a cultural/economic takeover. And if that doesn't work, they'll have lots of money to finance an army while our empire will be finacially destitute!!

Fortunatly we'll disrupt those plans for disruption, by smashing thier agents. But in doing so we'll leave our self open to retributions.

Alternatly it's just a rival faction within the Empire trying to cause civil unrest.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
GM:
The battle at the wagon is pretty much into mop-up time now, save for the fight everyone else seems to be missing - Samuel and Vilhelm.


Nonsense. Our fight has been mop-up since the beginning. To say otherwise is to imply the bandits could possibly get through my defense enough to also negate the regeneration effect.

...It's just, you know, I have no damage like this and I fumbled my one attempt to go on the offensive, which makes me hesitant to try again.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
GM:
Serafyna manages to dodge two attacks (one counter, one attack) and put the third man on the defensive, while doing some damage.  However, she's in serious danger in this situation, with the fourth man about to 'break free' (ie, mangle the guy on the ground) and the horseman still a ways off.

Yes, I can see how that might seem like a perilous situation.  But it only seems that way because it's a perilous situation.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
I realize I've probably beaten this into the ground by this point, but just as a reminder I'm going to post this again, written somewhat differently.

I'm really hoping the group will find a reason to gel, if you get my meaning.  There will be (and already have been) opportunities for that - for characters to actually decide to work together - but I'm not forcing anyone to do so.

...not that it isn't necessary, because characters who don't actually decide to work with the other characters will be dropped from the game.  But I'm not going to shoehorn people in, kicking and screaming, and have to drag them back into the group all the time.

I'm really hoping everyone is either playing a character happily capable of making new friends (or associates at the least) for whatever reason (money, fame, social connections, protection, general good nature, whatever, so long as it isn't "I'm going to manipulate and USE these silly people to carry out my own long-term goals that don't actually have anything to do with the GM's story", see my note on this in the Character Creation thread), or is playing a character who wouldn't normally do this but for whatever trumped-up reason is willing to suspend the logic of that character refusing to work with other players.

It's necessary for the game to run.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Using the group for one's own selfish means rarely ends well in games (aside from CP 2020), and has the detrimental effect of dragging them off the main plot into 'my character's story, who cares about the actual game issues' land.

This is radically different from a solid background that integrates well with the game.  :)

Well when I said it, I was thinking of Roy from Order of the Stick, where he was using the other adventurers to carry out his little revenge mission, but the y still ran into a Save the W old plot because of it.

So if the other characters WANT to play along with someone's selfish ends, I wouldn't see the problem.

Although I imagine it might short-circuit the GM's plot if he couldn't adapt it.

It's going to happen in fights, sadly.  Fortunately, aside from what Serafyna's currently involved in, this fight isn't terribly important to the plot.  Just a stage-setter.

Granted, it would be good if none of the player characters ended up deaded in the first fight, but I think you guys have realized by now that it's not likely to happen in a shakedown fight.

And you know, despite my undeniable Style, Lama and Lama Tsu are not only not in my plans, they never appear to have been up for concideration when I look over my notes.

I had enough trouble getting all the horribly Offensive Martial Arts I wanted without putting more points into Defensive ones.

Now if you're willing to give me a big discount on MAs, or some bonus DP per level, I could afford more MAs. But as it is? Power seems to be the order of the day.

I mean an extra attack at -30 isn't that bad, but you get an extra attack with Kendo at only the regular penelty, and like I said, I'm going for advanced Martal Arts...

But feel free to fill me in on any system exploits you like. Maybe I'll cash out a level for it, and postpone my advanced MAs if it's broken enough.

If you were heading for that kind of long-term goal, you'd probably have thought of the sneaky thing as well, especially given how he's already designed (multiple attacks etc).

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
TKD, in my setting, used to be a common part of Remano dueling practices (wasn't called TKD in Remo, obviously, but rather 'Roughhousing').  Basically it involved not only engaging with their dueling sabre and potentially the fighting spike (off-hand), but kicking, kneeing, elbowing, headbutting, whatever, when possible.

Hence, 'extra unarmed attack even when armed'.  The Remano people being pretty pragmatic and vicious with their dueling, much to the surprise of people from, for example, Gabriel (not to say they suck, but you won't see a couple of Gabrielense kicking, kneeing, or - certainly not - headbutting while fighting it out with rapiers).

The whole Remano dueling/fighting system was extensively worked out by another player of mine.  Sadly, all of the schools are in ruins right now.  :(

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Honestly, I'm a little surprised that Lama isn't as popular in these games.  In my other game, it's considered essential for not only both the martial arts type characters, but also for the assassin.

The capacity to get a free dodge (and then more when Lama Tsu is purchased) at full value...not only does it create huge options for counterattacks, but man, those 'multiple attacker dodge penalties' add up pretty quickly.

But as Adell says, focus.  There's only so much people can purchase before it starts to ruin their efficiency.

Hey, I absolutely LOVE Lama and Lama Tsu.

If Serafyna survives the next turn at all, it'll be in part due to it!


...I keep forgetting that you have that one.  :)

Sorry, Adell.  No discount.  Martial arts are powerful enough in the hands of a Tao.


CURSES!!

Well then I'll just have to suffer through with the horrible martial arts of Making Every One Explode Before They Can Hit Me.

Aaaand...Serafyna's doing better than she has any right to be doing.  :)  Even so, the damage is starting.

Horse-Person has managed to do damage to one of the bandits, so that's something.  Horse-Person quite obviously not exactly Kisidan.  Or even 'Experienced Soldier'.  We're talking...probably of a similar level to you guys, so this isn't exactly a WhiteHatNPCRescue (ugh, ugh).

Or maybe my initiative will beat yours and I'll manage to knock off his active actions.

Having done the math (assuming that your A/D is 80/80 and his is 60/60), you should be okay as long as he doesn't roll too high.

I must admit; not that he could get there in time anyway; I did enjoy reading Adell's post of broadly-speaking "Adell had nothing particular to do, so he found some busy-work.  Stupid girl, shouldn't've run off anyway. It's her own fault." (the last bit is sub-text, and pretty much accurate too).  ;)

Adell:
Whelp, nothing mound here. Maybe they needed his help up near the front. He briskly ogged towards the front of the Wagon train seeing if he wasp there.

You're doing this on purpose, now, aren't you?!  XD

I don't think the GM could be any less subtle in his hints.

Paraphrasing:
"So Adell was left with nothing to do round here.  The fight was pretty much dying out."
"The guard was sent by Baptiste to go and help the girl up ahead.  Unfortunately, he's not very quick.  If only there was someone fast who could help...."

It's like he was hitting you in the face with a "GO HELP SERAFYNA!" Brick.  ;)

I thought that dude was in the front of the Caravan, and was sending the other dude to help you?

Vilhelm and Samuel - you can, should you desire, choose to walk away from the fight at this point.  The guy on the ground is pretty wrecked, his penalty is such that he's not hitting anyone who decides to wander away from the fight, and there are guards (and an angry young man) about to show up.

I didn't factor that in either, so mine should have been -53!  Imagine if I was unskilled!

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
I suppose that's enough people weighing in.

I'm going to note - again - that this is not going to be a heavily action-oriented game.  If a player is disinterested in RP beyond action stuff, they're going to be really bored here, and it's probably better to know that now.

Granted, there WILL be action, but it's not exactly going to be hugely often.

Thus, I'm kind of hoping for more posts in-character, and not just in response to something that's happening - by which I mean, actually taking an active role, rather than just occasionally reacting to what's going on around the characters.

I realize it's early, yet.

That's more than fair enough.  It's not even your first language.

I kinda specialise in them (I've given training to actors in them), and I'm pretty sure I couldn't decipher accents in French that are written phonetically (apart from maybe a clumsy English one that's less of an accent and more blatant mispronunciation).

I've been told my own accent when speaking German sounds like I'm from Scandinavia.

Plus, it never helps that phonetic stuff only works if you share the same base accent as the person that wrote it.  I sometimes struggle to figure out what North Americans are saying when they try and write in an English accent, unless I first try reading it aloud in their own accent.

He's an NPC I've used in a Tabletop game.  Anima, in fact.  Seemed like a useful thing here, just to get the ball rolling in the game.  I like most of my games to be in the 'same' Anima world, so having him use his various contacts to help start up the game seemed workable.

Easier than making up a completely new, single-use NPC with similar skills and backgrounds, and helps keep things straight in my head.  :D

Wrong world.  :)  Siriel's world is different than 'mine', as I wouldn't dream of pushing my own situations on his GMing.

More that stuff that happens in this game might influence my tabletop one, and vice versa.  Though I doubt it, as you guys aren't really working in the same area.  :D

Quick, how does one show off their martial art skills for a blind chick without beating her up??

I mean hearing? All she'll here is the rustle of gis, maybe a nice yell, and the thump of someone getting knocked on their butt. I'd have to clarify "that wasn't me", and that would just kill the whole thing.

Touch, yeah... I mentioned that one.

He's not very detective-y.

If anything, Samuel is more like Tyrion Lannister by way of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Wants to be scheming but tends to be ultimately quite flawed in his plans and over estimates his own abilities.

And then there's a whole host of things in his history that is not public go into the how what and why of his current situation.

Well there's certain routes to go that mean you take consistently very good results over occasional excellence.  Especially if you're a magic user with certain sub-paths....  ;)

On balance, that would be a very good choice.


Bah, that only applies to Knowledge and Social Skills.

Nice, especially for the price, but not going to help in a fight as much as an Open Roll. :P

True, True. You just mentioned the Sub-paths, so I explained the limitations on those.

The other guy gives you a big bonus as long as you're using a tool too. Who  was that?

*looks it up*

Ah. Noah. He also lets you ignore all sorts of penelties, which would REALLY be useful in doing hard stuff if you can't open roll.

Sadly, she'd have needed inhuman or zen to get any information at all, as this is pretty much visual stuff. :(  She'll get her chance later with non-visual things.

The problem with 'Blind' as a disadvantage goes pretty far.  :)  Something people on the forums often don't seem to understand.  I'm not sure why.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
It is pretty cool.  And you can do a lot with it, even with the blindness, as your psychic powers increase.

It's just that it's a 2 point disadvantage.  Other two point disadvantages include being fully paralyzed, being cursed HORRIBLY with something that is usually lethal if the issues come about, or having an incurable, terminal illness that slowly ruins a character's effectiveness, month by month.

2 point disadvantages are pretty serious things.  :)  But one can usually find ways around them, and I suspect you will.

There wouldn't have been a HUGE difference with inhuman.  There's a certain limit to information one can pick up, and if you didn't get what was there with Impossible, Inhuman wouldn't have picked up much more.

Even just leaving us in a room, I could find what to post.

But right now we're kind of in a transition between hallway and dinner room and while I suppose I could post Vilhelm's reaction to what the man just said, I don't think it would really add anything beside just repeating what I've already posted.

Well, maybe that came out wrong.  For "the point", read "focal plot-thread, intertwined between this assemblage of unique, ideosyncratic, yet strangely-and-magnetically-drawn-together personalities".

Would that be better?  ;)

I love the RP side of the story, but as far as your getting much intra-party stuff defining why we're together, that may need to wait until there's no significant PCs around, about to unveil plot-critical details, so we can go a bit more free-form.  But worry not - it will come.  :)

Also, is anyone else not able to make new posts on CBR right now?

Well I didn't mean it like THAT, but it's just dinner, and dude sounded like he wanted to exposit some more and start a discussion on where we are and what we're doing. So I figured it would be polite to wait until he asks before going into my backstory. :P

I decided to move us along because it didn't seem people had much to say or do.

Adell, was thinking more about 'getting involved' than 'discuss your backstory', but fair enough.

Will likely post today, so that everyone can be sitting and NPC's can ask questions.

Don't think so, but you might not need it.  Because there's no laser printers, photocopiers, or even printing presses either ( I don't think).  Except for texts and scrolls that were created by magic (or stuff of a similar nature), every bit of writing will have been scribed with a pen, pencil or quill, leaving an indent of the writing, which an experienced person might be able to trace with their fingers and read that way.

Why not do what Siriel did in the other game - include them in the cast list as NPCs, with character descriptions and whatnot .

Then they can post in their own right, which is a lot quicker, if you're ever short on time, than writing a full post.  You can just write what they say.

Maintaining a Dramatis Personae thread could be painfully laborious for you (unless we've already met everybody, in which case go right ahead).

It's a good idea, but I'm more likely to go with the thread.  It'll actually take less time than making up new characters every time you meet someone of some import.

Seriously, there will be quite a few names.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Soooo...magic/ki/psychics/other supernatural stuff in Gaia.

If you've read the rulebook, you know that magic and the like aren't exactly popular, and mostly vanished hundreds of years ago.  If you've read the setting book, you know that diffferent countries have different attitudes toward magic and the supernatural, assuming they even believe it exists.

A little more detail, now.

Most people also aren't even aware of the distinction between the different kinds of supernatural abilities.  It's ALL magic, because...they don't know anything about it.  Start talking about Ki to the average person, and unless they're from Lannet or Shivat, they won't have the faintest clue what you mean.  "You mean, like to open a locked door?"  The word 'psychic' is something bandied about amoung people in the know - ie, people with the Occult skill - whereas to most people, it's just magic.  That the other person did it without chanting or making gestures is meaningless.  Trying to explain the distinction between sorcery/magery and summoning to the average person is going to get them staring at you like you've grown a second head.  Talking about 'the Gift' is going to get them wondering what someone gave you for Weinhacht (Christmas on Gaia).

It's ALL 'magic' to them and depending on where they come from, it's the devil's work, it's utter bunk, it's something to be wary of but not necessarily bad, it's utter terror in a can, it must be burned at the stake, it's the favour of the gods/spirits, it's dishonorable and must be squished, arrgh WTH is that it's freaking me out, etc.

...note that most of the above thoughts are pretty negative.  :)

Well, that explains her reaction. I suppose Giovanna wouldn't know that, since where she's from, they just consider it devilry and go on about their day. She just assumed that everyone was like that.

Alright, there's one sure fire way to do this. Well, two, but let's not give the girl a heart attack ;)

Well, people do often make the distinction between "this guy is moving really fast and hitting really hard" and "this guy is glowing and shooting fireballs".

The former is something that most countries have a fair amount of experience with and it can be dismissed as "he's just really good". (They will then instead be worried because you're really good at fighting, but hey.)

The latter, not so much.

Absolutely.  It's Ki Dominions of a flashy nature that really look...dangerous to them.

Most Ki abilities, barring someone running across water or levitating, are usually passed off as 'holy crap that guy is good!'

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Also, Giovanna is currently discovering 'How the people of Gabriel view the Supernatural.'  With allowences for variations between specific individuals.

Just to note, Giovanna, your character would realize that her revealing this would be taking a ridiculous chance with her own life.  Had she done this in her homeland, for example, the person to whom she was demonstrating quite likely would be screaming for guards while fleeing for their lives, likely intent on filing a report at the local Church ASAP.  At the least, they'd pretend to go along with it just long enough to get the hell away 'safely' and THEN file the report with the Church.

And given that country's tendancies, there'd be an Inquisitor on Giovanna's trail within a week.  :(

I'm not saying you SHOULDN'T have done it - your choice, after all!  :)  Nor am I suggesting you were planning to spill this sort of information at the drop of the hat to just anyone.

But as fair warning to everyone in the group, your characters would know that telling people about this sort of thing is dangerous, and the players should know that actions do have consequences in this game.  If it does start getting around and people actually BELIEVE it...

The Inquisition isn't a huge force in Gabriel, but like most places on Gaia, it's there, and it's very, very good at what it does.  That being 'hunt down supernatural things and kill them, no discussion, no questioning save to find out if there are more of them'.

Granted, Serafyna didn't actually see it happening, but Ambrose has at least two people - possibly more - in his Caravan who obviously used Ki or something along those lines in the big fight.

That's not even counting his 'troubleshooters' - those two were 'Captains' of his men.

He has also dropped all kinds of comments that indicate he's aware of supernatural stuff, so I don't figure Serafyna is way out of bounds with her choice.  :D

Awesome.  I think I have enough with which to post, now.  Today or tomorrow.

As a side note, Baptiste didn't actually ask for a list of abilities or anything like that, nor did he even ask for people to say 'Yeah, I do supernatural stuff!' right now.  He just said 'hey, I know you do that stuff.  If you want to work for my buddy, you kind of have to confirm it to him, though he won't be looking for an itemized list of skills...'

Err...the entire books are new, basically.

Dominus has a far better system to create techniques.

Arcana has a...not so awesome new way to use spells.

But both introduce a lot of new options from bloodlines to new ways to summon and such. Dominus' options are pretty much all cool, Arcana less so.

(It's not that Arcana is an awful expansion or anything, except for some overpowered things. It's just that Dominus is really, really good.)

Exactly.

If Giovanna wants to learn how to become a human railgun (which for a blind person could potentially be quite hazardous to her teammates), Magnetism is pretty cool.  Teleportation too, as Vilhelm notes.

But ignore Psychic Inclinations.  They suck donkey balls.  There is literally nothing to redeem them from suckitude.

From a magic point of view, there's some... interesting... stuff.

Metamagic is ludicrously OP in places, but then you also realise that after you've bought all the Metamagic you want, you'd have no ML left to buy... you know... actual spells.

The stuff on Familiars and particularly Sheele is quite cool.

And some of the Sub-Paths of Magic are a lot of fun (but again... horribly OP - seriously, check out Nobility and Literature - ridonkulous).

But the real winners in Arcana are Summoners.  Especially those who focus on Invocations (and in Arcana, also Incarnations).

Still... as a book it's not as good as Dominus, because... Dominus.  Awesomeness Exxet, is what it should really be called.  None of the Exxet books are much use to Ardelyn though (unless she really picks up her Forging skills for Prometheum Exxet).  Weaponmasters are totally screwed by this point.

True. You need a ridiculous amount f INT if you're going to delve into it.

You'd think it'd be death or Blood or Sin or something, but no. Lit and Nobility are the OP. :P

If I'm not mistaken, the only thing for her in Prometheum would be alchemy, since that's the closest to forging.

As for Giovanna, I'll be sticking with Daredevil/Jean Grey. It's bad enough using telekinesis when blind, becoming a human railgun is infinitely worse.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Total agreement with the assessments above.

Arcana Exxet is a decent supplement.  Has some really good stuff, some decent stuff, some crappy stuff.

However, like any and all other supplements (except Gaia Volume I), COMPARATIVELY it is absolute crap when measured against Dominus Exxet, which wins the prize in my 30+ years of RPGing in literally dozens of systems of Best Game Rules Supplement Ever Created.

It's a freaking game-changer.

Arcana Exxet is still good, though.  :)

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
I'll try and get a post in today (or at the latest tomorrow), but...

I think we've got a little confused on the room situation.

When we first arrived, it was one room for the ladies and one for the gents.

When we went to bed, it SOUNDED like we've all got separate rooms.

When we got up, we were back to a ladies room and a gents room.

This may sound like niff-naff and trivia, but I'm not sure Serafyna would have done her pre-bed ritual stuff the same way with Gio in the room, and I'm almost positive that Vilhelm wouldn't have had his little conversation with Samuel and Adell present.

But meh... I suppose we can just ignore the minor continuity glitch and just assume these were done in private, can't we?

"Ah good!" Adell was annoyingly chipper for this hour in the morning. "The sooner we get started, the sooner it'll get done!" He flashed the others a big grin. "Let's get going. Maybe there will be more threats, and we can actually get some clues off of them."

He knew he was tempting fate, but he didn't like the idea of an unknown enemy with unknown powers throwing people that were incapable of surrender at them. Any clues they could get would help find this mystery villain.

Annoyingly chipper?  Check.
Searching for clues?  Check.
Mystery villain?  Check.

What I don't understand about the translation thing, well, one of the many things, is that the capital of Gabriel is apparently Chauville in the French book, but I'm pretty sure it's Chaville in the English book.  Gabriel place-names are in French.  How is a French name different in French than in English?!

I've had to go back and read the entire RP thread again for clues.

And now my brain is going into ridiculous theorising mode.

(Mind you, it was a good read.  And it was probably needed, cos we've got a bit decompressed in our storytelling.  We finished dinner in July, I think, so the last 6 months has been Talking (+ Vilhelm doing some healing + Gio doing some noblewoman-scaring), Sleeping, and Getting Up.  I needed the reminder.)

The main problem is this is a lot less dramatic. Adell will now have very little reason to care about the issue. I may just delete it altogether and change it into a "Sure I'm willing to walk for a while" style post.

Yes, yes I did.

Didn't really notice anything.  Sorry. 

This brings up an important point.  Sorry if I haven't mentioned this, but if I call for something - notice rolls, attack rolls, whatever, I'd like them either included in your post or in a PM to me.  :)

Awesome.  I go to read.

Okay, here's the prize.  Everyone chooses one of the following:

1.  +10 to start off a new skill as a special bonus.
2.  +5 to add to any existing skill.
3.  +10 to add to Style.

Again, one of the above, let me know before adding to your character sheet.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
I haven't even had chance to check yet what I'm going to pick.

Cos +10 to a new skill is effectively +40 (due to eliminating the -30 unskilled penalty), so it's like 8 times as good as +5 to an existing skill.

But...

It may not be '+40' to a skill you actually want.

So it's like bargain-shopping.  Is it a better bargain to get 50% off a shirt you don't like, or to get 5% off a shirt you DO like?  Hmmm....

I am always amazed when people make up characters who don't have Notice.

Then again, people make up big city characters (Police, Detectives, etc) in modern games set in North America who don't have 'Drive'.  Or stuff like that.

It happens. :)

To be fair "Drive" in most games is like "ride" in Anima. You're assumed to do it competently enough even without skills as long as you're not trying to do anything hard.

So if that guy never took the cops' stop criminals from driving classes, I guess he could have no points in drive.

Hint - you might see me say Chauville a lot.  Why?

1.  It's more natural to me.
2.  I read Gaia in French, first.

Either way, doesn't matter.  :D

Apropos of nothing (except idly re-reading the Setting information thread), and for once this might not actually be the fault of FFG's English translators.

The French map you've posted also identifies the place as Chaville.

I mean I'll still blame FFG though, because FFG.

Game depending.

Now, I often see this used as a comment in games where it ISN'T depending, where there are skills like 'Automobile: Basic' or where 'Drive +1' is written as 'knows how to drive a car in normal, everyday situations.'

And in any game like Anima where people suffer a penalty for not having a skill, then that sort of thing goes out the window.

...actually, when I think of it...

Okay, what Modern Game DOES have 'assumed to be able to drive in normal, everyday circumstances' as a notation when otherwise there is an actual 'Drive' skill?

Top Secret?  Nope.
Top Secret SI?  Nope.
Cyberpunk 2013/2020?  Nope.
Gurps?  Hahahaha...nope.
James Bond 007?  Nope.
Any Palladium Game?  Nope.
Any game based on the Rolemaster system?  Nope.
Classic Marvel?  Maybe.  It had the 'Drive' talent, though.  I'd need to look it up.
Mutants and Masterminds?  Would need to look it up.  It does have the 'Drive' skill, though.
Etc.

Seriously, I know you're right - there are games out there where it's noted as being a 'basic' skill - but I can't recall them.

quote:

Cops have to pass a pretty difficult driving test.  I suspect that would require at least some 'skill' in drive.

Just a small reminder that Andreas is the fellow from Ilmorre who seems to be fostered to this household.  A cousin, from what you've heard.

Also, being the guy on the horse during the little fracas, he was the least injured of the three members of the household.  The viscount's elder daughter and son obviously haven't made an appearance this morning.

Oh yeah.  Injuries.

I really must go back and check how much damage I took and then work out how much I've recovered.

Also, I haven't quite worked out why Baptiste (who's also from Ilmorra) has a French accent.  I thought Ilmorra was Greek.  ;)
