Setting by inches- Land of the Dawn.

Because I want to write up something, but don't have the patience to do it all at once before posting things. So it will be done in segments. THE LAND OF THE DAWN There are many worlds ruled by mystic forces, and among those there are places where great forces of good and evil clash in apocalyptic b...

Re: non-combat abilities?

Okay, basically, the vast majority of the abilities are non-combat or at least have a number of non-combat applications- it's only things like Attack and Combat Expert that are purely combat-centric. There are a whole bunch of social and technical abilities.

Re: Spider Tanks are Pretty Tough Even as Extras

So... "Spider Tanks are really tough if you massively boost their stats". This was a surprise how ? Okay, to walk it back a bit, a Spider Tank using the optional Scale Advantage is no longer threat level 1, because you are making huge alterations to the stats that directly affect how much threat the...

Re: Pick a character!

Nice! I like how you remembered his train expertise from that one episode. It's not easy to overstate how much I have watched that show. :) But I felt that "pilot" was a bit of a gap that needed filling. There are quite a few archetypes in the book, but I do kinda feel that the lack of a mecha pilo...

Re: Standard Issue Sidearm

The flaw states it takes a full day to reload, or extensive down time. Jiro's character sheet tells me even Clay has no idea what to do with the flaw. Also, a .357 or .44 revolver is a hand cannon and holds six shots, which is more than the flaw allows. If you want to nitpick. If Jiro is really out...

Re: Pick a character!

Hey R-90-2, could you do Wolf Bronski from Exo-Squad next? Would you believe I was actually working on that when you posted? After Wolf Bronski's Psych evaluation, the psych-tech conducting the interview said that "inside Wolf Bronski is a terrified little boy". Another psych tech wrote next to tha...

Re: Pick a character!

Gonna do some Exo-Squad. Many people dream of flying, but what they really dream of is freedom. For Lieutenant J. T. Marsh, flying does not mean freedom- it means responsibility, for the men and women in his Exo Squad. His dream is that the war will be over, and that there will once again be open sk...

Re: Good Example Characters?

Base zero is the fairly straightforward Mo' Power Mo' Problems rule, which can create someone with great personal power if they've had rough, terrible, hard-luck circumstances that might even make them almost a man alone against a terrifying world. See- Kenshiro, Tekkaman Blade. Power Ceiling is abo...

Re: Help with encounter TVs

Well, first, it's pretty easy to jump above 24 if you tack on a couple of the boss abilities, and Shadowman is already a TV 24 on his own. Secondly, in a game like this, if you're interested in having singular, powerful foes at some point, you're pretty much going to have to buckle down and toss in ...

Re: Making a Pokemon Trainer

For having multiple monster friends, that would really depend on if you were able to convince the GM to let the Walking Arsenal ability apply to Companion. As for the second concern, that really depends on 1.) How strong you've built the trainer himself (see Yuu), and secondly, normal humans aren't ...

Re: Question Regarding Magic, Arcane

I think starting characters can only get Level 3 Abilities, at top. Only after a good amount of time and dedication that they can buy Level 4 and 5. Nah, that's only a light suggestion- there's nothing really hard-coded bout that sort of thing in character creation, which suits me just fine- would ...

Thanks. This kinda stuff just falls out of me every once and a while, so it's probably going to happen again. :)

Malicron- Changing the way we think about peace.

Just something I whipped up in about an hour or so- the idea that there would be an intermediate step between normal defense contracting and Miho was too good to pass up. The Malicron corporation (for lack of a better term- some have been considering applying the term Zaibatsu) is one of the premier...

Zero-sum character gen.

Hello again. I understand the intentions behind making chargen a near-zero sum game (that is, for the sake of roleplaying), but I'm hoping that there will be other, equally-solid rules for character generation in the next game, for a couple of reasons. -Mandatory neurosis. As the came stands, to mak...
