yeah there will be more skills later on as the Rp progresses and the characters become stronger , though I'm not gonna lie , "2 abilities and 4 moves" are heavily influenced by MOBA's "2 passive , 3 skills and 1 ult" skill set :P

2 abilities and 4 moves for now, that part and the limitations are included in my post. We'll try to be more in depth as time passes , but for now I can only think about the limitations for the skills ^^".

I also added a small part into that announcement. About the duration-based skills. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Another thing I wanna add is that the skills are meant to still center around the character's ability , for example my character's ability is "force redirection" , and from that "Deflect" and "Force shock" is created. Her abilities and Last Resort is based on her heritage.

Honestly, I think the new rp fighting system is awesome. However, in the 60+ posts that Serence's character is prepared to fight, what will happen to other characters who aren't in the situation? Do they wait for a few years until the dragonball style of fighting is over? I think it is an awesome system, but it isn't going to work in a forum rp.

I understand it's a system that needs work, but I honestly can't see how any of it will work. Basing an attack by post makes the rp filled with too much fighting post and it can make players who haven't been here in awhile have to sort through a fight to get to actual story.

They don't have to wait or anything. If they aren't in that situation, there's nothing stopping them from doing other things. Serence's post included a part that said that those who weren't involved didn't count towards a "cooldown" post amount or whatever. If they do happen to jump in then their post count will start to count towards whatever is tracking it. It seems pretty flexible to have cooldowns and timers set on posts because more goes by when more people post.

2 Passives.... 3 skills and an Ult... 2 passives? What... League of Legends? Does that do 2 passives? I must be long gone on everything. I'm pretty sure DotA 2 had 1 passive and Smite has 1 passive. Does that mean I can have 1 passive, 2 abilities and 4 moves? Cause....

It's not the preparing to fight, it's the actual fighting going on, my character can only fight for 60 post , even shorter if she takes damage (which she will) or use the last resort , after that she's out.

yeah it's like Deske explained ^^ . The more people post , the faster the duration will go by, I also putting a sort of motivation for myself to post by having Alexis's power be on a timer like that because I will have to post more if I want to have an impact on the RP , if I post 1 post and the other combatants + enemies posted the rest 59 posts , then despite not being able to do anything , I'll still time out anyway.

we aren't going to have fightings happen all the time , and even if some of the characters are fighting, some other might be doing their own thing somewhere else without being affected from either sides. I'm a "lore guy" myself , meaning I concentrate a lot of the story as well, don't worry. But the way I see it, the actual fighting wouldn't be much different from how it is now. As it is now, everyone PM us about the attempt, we roll and you guys post the result in your next post. If we use this system , you guys choose a skill, we roll and either you or us post the result in our next post. But with this skill system, we will hopefully avoid having the result being completely different from what we wanted to do. No too long or too short duration spells just because, or any attacks that just somehow hit but do no damage or anything like that. You guys choose a skill , the roll will say if it hit or miss , critical of partially defended, stuff like that. Or at least that's what I'm hoping anyway :P.
As for the story itself , if some of us have to afk for a while and come back, I'm keeping track of the story as it goes and might be able to offer them a summary, in which the battles will probably just "bad guy attack this place , defeated , casualties include etc etc". So they can catch up on the story more easily.

Yes the recently released champions (playable characters) in League of Legend have like 2-3 passives including the ones from their active skills. The oldest ones in this case are Master Yi and Irellia , each has 2 passives.
anyway back on track, we only have 2 abilities and 4 moves right now. Since passive skills affect only the user , it is counted as an ability, but making a passive will take up a slot in your ability , leaving you with just 1 more ability and 4 moves.

well, this is easy enough, it's mostly just my existing loadout in a new format, the vast majority of which this lot have already seen, so no reason to hide it.

Ability: Change Form (Active)
Ability: Healing Factor (Passive)

Move: Precise Shot (Ammo limit, 6 bolts/darts per magazine)
Move: Knife Throw (Ammo limit, number of concealed blades depends on outfit)
Move: Tranquilizer (Silent, Auto-KO, Target must be unaware or prone)
Move:

Any suggestions for the last one?

I might be a bit biased based on my own ability sheet, but I think it should be a bit more complicated than that. I know 69 is coming out with a reference sheet for how to set them up at the end of the week/weekend though.

For those wondering, there might be an exit in the kitchen where the food was prepared. Players should look there.
My new job is really taking it out of me. Sorry for the inactivity. I will be back though.

Also, if we do any time jumps after this event, I might have you all maybe post somega ideas of what your characters did during that time here or a synopsis post. I a, going to chat with the other gms first about it.

However if we get to January in the rp time, i hope your characters love the cold. Because idaho normally is freezing right at that point.

Also I will post my character sheet later.

Well, I'm not sure when it'll hit below zero here IRL, but when it does it will still rain.

More RP related, the extra cold just means more things to add to the characters appearence, in my case this is good to some extend as I've only included a coat and glasses.

Chris has a hoodie, and spent time living in the streets. he can stand the cold.

in fact, his powers may warm him up a bit cause electric current gives off heat.

Attention players,

Regarding the attacks and abilities, I'm still trying to come up with a decent reference sheet.

As a consolation for my absence, here is the DnD Interactable Player's handbook. http://www.mediafire.com/download/b66xl ... ndbook.rar

For those who have ideas on their characters, you may negotiate your set of skills with me for approval. I will be coordinating with you on the scopes and limitations of your skills.

For those who need ideas, you may refer to the handbook or consult me regarding your set.

Also, I'd like everyone's feedback on the RP.

If you have any concerns, any suggestions, any opinions, please direct them to me. You can either PM me here or skype with me. My skype is Komi.shisei.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas.

P.S. If you can't open RAR files, try this http://www.mediafire.com/view/z0vmxjj2i ... ndbook.pdf

P.S.S. Use this one if you want to preview it. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4kCC ... 05fRXY3S3M

A bit of an important announcement for you all.

The new DnD system will be postponed for a while.

As well, I will be temporarily taking charge of the RP for a time. 69 will still be around and will return as GM, but for now I will be doing everything I can to address any questions, problems, concerns. So please feel free to reach out to me about anything related to this rp.

As well, being as it is nearing the 25th. This month has been full of various holidays. I hope that which ever holiday has been your holiday of choice that you celebrate it well. As for me I will be celebrating christmas so merry Christmas to you all and to all humbug (kidding on the humbug ).

I will be also working to make sure the rp begins to start up again back to a level of activeness.

That's why that mechanic is being put aside until he returns and we will just stick to what was working. I'm going to be making a post after I'm done at work about what's going to happen.

Though let's not point fingers and try to blame any one person or any group of individuals please. It's not productive and usually leads to people pointing fingers and blaming others. While everyone gets upset and feelings get hurt.
You are right about the lack of gm involvement, and while two of them have been focusing on exams and other important real life matters. As for me I am sorry for not being very active, for a while I had to deal with a new job that had me up at 4am and had to deal with some of my own stuff. I should have still been active regardless of that as it wasn't fair to any of the players. And I am sorry I wasnt. I will work on doing better from here on out though.

Thank you for those that responded, I am going to work on a plan with the other assistant GM (serence). which does mean that after her exams we will be able to focus a little more.

But I do want to push through this arc now, which means that I will be having to discuss some stuff with people latter, like with jim. We need to do something about him.

Thats... not even remotely close.

Medabots is more like Pokemon with robots instead of animals.
You buy your first one, and earn parts for others from battles. You can keep your medabot deployed, or keep it in storage and summon it via a control device (usually a watch) as needed.

So, ran into an unexpected problem today. Car broke down. This mostly means that what I wanted to post today will have to be put off till tomorrow.
But what you all should know is that we are finishing the current arc. Jim the giant is no longer being slowed by time. And after this a new story arc is going to happen. One that I kind of need to retcon some of the back story of some of the characters.

I also have been given a few villain suggestions by lego, which I am going to utilize as well. I will be discussing that with him shortly also. Since a certain holiday is happening on thrusday. Don't worry about posting in the main rp if you cant. Go spend time with family and such.
Though after christmaschool be ready.

Also there are bombs located on the lobby floor where everyone is, and the floor above. But beware players. The rooster lies in wait on the second floor. Be ready for a fight if he finds you.

alright, just tried to pull myself and NIW back into things.

just for story's sake, let's say Chris is closer to stairs than an exit and will end up on the second floor. I think he's more well equipped to handle the rooster than the big guy.


also, hopefully a non-combat use of powers didn't require a roll. if it did I could edit my post and do that in another post after getting a roll. I just wanted to get back in the game before everything ended.

Attention players, I have an announcement.
While I'm sure that 69 will explain this if he wishes. 69 has passed on the mantle of head GM to myself. 69 will still have input and contribute to the RP. As this is still his..."baby" I guess.

What this will mean for you all, is that mostly I will be in charge and a few things in the rp are going to change. The changes, I intend to be minimal and will be working on them on friday.
I also will be looking for player input in the future as well.

Thanks for reading. See you all next time for an exciting adventure on chival.

(P.S. we will wrap this current arc up soon).
