Re: OOC Thread
I'd be fine with Caltropcore, though i do believe the Stats are a bit too basic for my liking.

It seems a lot less nightmarish then fate at least. god I understood gurps when I first read it, fate is just awful.

Well, MORE stats, perhaps?

Forceful
Agile
Insightful
Charming

?

Or, let's see...

Forceful (STR and CON)
Agile
Intelligence
Wisdom
Charisma

?

Or the good ol' STR/DEX/CON/INT/WIS/CHR?

I like Forceful/Agile/Insightful/Charming myself, but I can flexible about this...

Re: OOC Thread
Tell me if i'm an idiot. I am that all the time.

Does it make sense to have chaos and law magic being stats with them being selectively available based on class?

Hapid Gladiators use mild uses of chaos magic, while say Frogs are more prone to law magic. Allowing different sources of power, some might not be able to use it at all, others in mild ways a 1, others are decent or advanced practitioners a 2, or a 3?

I might just be a fool, and missing the point though.

I'm fine with that. I've seen it lately in at least one other game-- "this class has an extra stat"

No I'm fine with it.

So BESIDES the extra stats, how many d'you want at core?

Forceful/Agile/Insightful/Charming

I can try to work with this. Though need to verify.

Forceful would be kicking down the door and taking names
Agile, would be sneaking through the Window, and overhearing their conversations to take those names.
Insightful would be not going there in the first place, bribing the Servants to give me those guys' names.
Charming would be convincing you are on the guest list even though you aren't and having them introduce themselves to you, to learn their names.

Forceful is strength, taking hits, punching hard, yeah.

Agile is sneaking, stealth, ranged combat, yeah.

UH, I think that would be Charming, because it'd be convincing the servants to help you out and tell no one they told you.

Insightful would be spotting important details, keeping watch, finding hidden stuff, figuring things out, remembering stuff ("Wait, I heard an old legend about this once... I think their necks are the least-armored part of them...")

You bet. Persuasion, talking people into stuff

Ah Ok, so it would be finding out who their Messenger gave invitations through based on their routes, and through that the names.

Re: OOC Thread
It's tempting but I don't think I have room for another active system based game right now. I'm in a handful of D&D things both IRl and on RPoL as it is. It takes most my attention. The casual nature of building the world didn't tax it the way I expect a full game would.

Understood.

Yeah, I liked that too. It's why I was able to keep coming back and moving things along as regularly as happened.

So that leaves you, Balance... What do you say?

What?

I mean, if you want to re-start this experience with sci-fi, I'm fine with that, but I'm hoping to have the game, preferably with Balance.

Balance continues to not reply to the question. I have PMed him.

In the meantime, I will invite the four of you to a new game...

link to another game


SO-- New question-- do the four of you all want to participate in re-starting this experience to make a sci-fi universe?

Uhm, woah, taking this setting to a whole new level. I thought we established this as more of a fantasy setting than modern or even futuristic, but okay, let's do it.

Yeah. I'll change POWERFUL BEINGS, I think, UNLESS we want SPACE GODS like in Star Trek (there are so many in Star Trek! Q and his ilk! That guy who was, or thought he was, a Greek God! And on, and on, and on...)

I'll change Magic Thing to Super Science Thing... And so on and so on.

I'll set it up soon... maybe tomorrow if I have time.

Daryus, you up for that?

(I'll do the vote-accounting different this time...)

Sci-fi thing sounds fun. I think powerful beings works just tinfe as there are plenty of those in the universe. YOu know, a powerful super computer or a galactic president or a messiah or whatnot.

Re: OOC Thread

Okay folks, I have hidden all the old stuff and replaced the old rules with a new sci-fi set of rules.

This time, I felt for a sci-fi world, Places should come before Creatures/Plants.

So... any comments before I officially open voting?
