Need critique on a new ability (Animal-Shifter)

So, I'm kicking around an idea for an Animal-Shifter ability, to let you transform into various creatures. I'm envisioning it as being similar to Gear and Magic (Arcane) in that it gives you access to bonuses, but with a built-in drawback. Gear has the drawback of being able to lose the items that g...

Re: What is your favorite ability/weakness?

As far as abilities go, I like the Magics (Arcane and Witchcraft) the most mechanically, but from a storytelling perspective, Connected, Position of Power, and Famous are pretty good.

As for weaknesses, my absolute favorite has to be Rival, hands down.

Re: My Dungeons and Dragons Conversion

I like the class templates! I was a little confused at first that some of them seemed to have one more rank in abilities than others, but then I remembered that Knowledge is recommended to be "half-price", so it all works out.

Yes please, that would actually be great.

Also, if you have any Class templates to go with those racial templates, that would be cool.

Re: Exalted conversion?

You make a good point. How about this: +/- 10 points for Solars/Abyssals/Infernals +/- 5 points for Lunars/Sidereals +/- 5 Points for Dragon-Blooded, but they use Scaled Costs rule. Also: You're suggesting that different castes have a certain number points of abilities/weaknesses? Not quite sure wha...

Re: Exalted conversion?

OVA (rough quickstart) Exalted character creation rules NOTE: These are starting defaults, all Exalt types may gain more Ability points by taking extra weaknesses. There are no set rules for Castes or Aspects, but those may be reflected by Ability choices. New abilities are mention here, and will be...

Re: Custom Settings

Sounds cool. Reminds me a little of Avatar the last airbender, You should check it out maybe it will help you out in someway. Heh, I own the full series already, as well as Legend of Korra, but thanks! I'm picturing relatively few outright elemental styles, though they do exist, and more Wuxia-styl...

Re: Custom Settings

Going to run a game for some friends in a week or two, in a basic "Supernatural Martial Arts" setting. Not overly original, aside from maybe the Tribe/Clan structure of Martial Artist society. Tribes form the largest groups of Martial Artists, such as the mighty Dragon Clan. Each tribe has multiple ...

Re: new OVA game

Like Malancthon said, it sounds pretty similar to Exalted in core premise, but depending on the specifics of your setting you could easily put your own spin on the concept. Sounds cool to me.

Exalted conversion?

Has anyone attempted to convert the setting of Exalted into OVA? Doesn't seem like it would be that difficult, honestly. I think I might throw a quick conversion together at some point.

Looking for GM/Roll20 group.

I've been infatuated with the system for a couple years, but I've never been able to convince my IRL GM to run it. Anyone willing to run a game? Pretty much any setting/genre is fine by me, although I admittedly like fantasy best.

Re: The end of the year

Late response, but I've not been able to convince my group to run OVA so far. Been considering trying for a Roll20 group.
