Remember 2d6 is a bell type probability curve, not linear. That is to say for, example, that there are 6 different combinations of numbers that add up to the total of 7 (1+6,2+5,3+4,4+3,5+2,6+1) but only one combination which adds up to 2 (1+1). Its essential to consider this if you're going to use ...

I voted for Raine. He reminds me alot of Haku from the early Naruto episodes.

The lesson here is ... just because it looks like a sissy don't mean it won't kick your ass.

Question about multiple actions

From the section about multiple actions (pg. 82): "Normally, you are limited to making one action in a combat round. You can, however, take a penalty to your rolls to make two (or more!) actions. A Penalty equivalent to the total number of actions being made is applied to all actions. Although Defen...

AFAIK the Uresia conversion is not entirely complete. This is the last I've heard of it: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/uresia/message/467 I'm not sure if the link works unless you subscribe to the yahoo group. At any rate OVA is such a great game because conversion of a wide variety of setting...

What is the "linked to Special Ability (Drain) +5" supposed to represent? I feel like I'm missing something dreadfully obvious. Thanks for the input Clay helpful as usual. This is because Rogue doesn't just copy people's powers, she steals them. Or would I be better off just including it all inside...

Help with build please

I'm trying to work out how one could build someone with power along the lines of Rogue from X-Men. That is the power to "absorb" someone else's powers. Seems kinda tricky unless you separate your abilities/weaknesses into those that are "supernatural" and those that are "natural". Rogue can copy som...

Just had to bump this thread because I've been thinking about this lately. Most exactly I've been thinking about a way to have the coolness of the Exalted setting without the clunky system. First I think it would be pertinent use the Point Scale rule for character creation ... level 3 costs 4 points...

Abilites/weaknesses list

http://wiseturtle.com/OVAabilitiesweaknesses.pdf

Does not appear to list all the abilities and weaknesses in the book. Is there something I'm missing here?

At any rate I'm going to work on updating the list. Is there any legal issues with sharing it when I'm done?

I don't think there is such a conversion factor but I'm kinda curious ...

Why would you want variable point costs?

The beauty of OVA is its simplicity. You seem to be trying to make it more complex.

Thats great news. I got so bored of reading thru all that stuff, especially when they started posting onto legitimate threads.

I often wonder just how large the market for penis enlargement pills is anyway.

j/k please don't take my comment the wrong way. :D

I understand that if I own the pdf I can make one hardcopy for myself, so I might just go to my local copy shop and see if they can print and bind the updated copy for me.
