Background:
name: Layne Cooper - age: 15 - eyes: blue - hair: black - height: 6'4"

There is nothing wrong with Layne Cooper. Absolutely nothing. He's well rounded,
has a good family that loves him (and actually has money), and he's not
depressed in any way. He saw no ancient evils or sibling killing/kidnapping
murderers in his youth. He's still got all 3 of his brothers. He always got good
grades in school, and he never got bullied. Heck, he was the valedictorian of
Tymisonn High.

... OK, so there's one thing wrong with him.

He's bored.

All his life has been handed to him on a silver platter. Nothing has been a
challenge. Well, except for the black mage's academy he just graduated from. And
the adventures he's about to embark upon.

... I... did mention that, right?

Background:


name: Jackson Myers - age: 29 (technically) - eyes: brown - hair: reddish-brown -
height: 6'4" - weight: 300 lbs


Jackson Myers is the hero formerly known as the Crimson Defender. A premier crimefighter in his realm, he fought injustice at every turn. But, one fateful day, he found himself in the presence of a band of Gaerans, and found them to have "powers" like his. They set off on a quest to rid the world of the evil Jarax, or Selendrile, or something. No one was ever quite sure. The one thing Jackson was sure of was that before the battle was won, Jarax killed him. Quite painfully.

He found himself in a new world. Surprisingly enough, it was the world of Gaera. (Editor's note: Popular demand. Go fig.) He attempted to continue with his superheroic duties, but found he was making more and more of a buffoon of himself. When he found he did not fit in the new world, he descended into a bottle. He dragged himself back out again, and now he helps the simple folk of Doma.

I am here to comment on the techs! Please don't hate me.

Feat of Strength: Ow. Change it to perhaps a bonus to the Strength stat? 1000 pounds is obviously an arbitrary number you haven't thought about very much, and being able to totally lift it for 1TP is a bit...no :{

The next three!: Astral Magic isn't laser beams.

The flexy deal: I don't see how flexing would block an attack. Lessen the damage, maybe, but not "Block". Since, uh, shields block because they absorb the damage. And, uh, flexed muscles are part of your body, and part of your body absorbing damage = pain = numbers showing up above your head. Or something.

Diran: Alright, Charles. You're making us do this again. But, since you are such a frequent customer, we'll allot you a double feature!

Nagan: We'll start with Layne Cooper, the bored mage. Yes, that's right. His entire character concept revolves around the fact that he has nothing to do. I swear by all that is holy that I am not kidding.

Meldon: Doesn't that mean that he doesn't have anything if he's got something to do?

Diran: Well, he doesn't not have anything if he's got something to do, he's got something to do, and that's a whole lot more something than there would be if he didn't have anything at all.

Meldon: But if he didn't have the something then he'd have the something of not having the something, which is why he doesn't have anything right now.

Diran: We understood that perfectly. DID YOU? Anyway...

Yinnea: Charles, you sweetie, why does your character have no less than two magical weapons at level one, one of which casts spells for free?


Diran: Yes. As for skills, normal magical fare, except he knows Cooking, Quilting, Tying Knots, and Botany.

Nagan: Clearly, he went to the Black Mage And Boy Scout Academy, and got some of his classes mixed up.

Hzar: And. Now. For. The. TECHS.

Fenron: Yawn. Boring. All book stuff. He's lazy. Move on, please.


Diran: Alright, and in this corner, weighing in from 300 pounds, hometown Paragon City, Jackson.....MYERS!

Jinto: Okay, so. A long long time ago in a mysterious realm, he was a crimefighter. Then, inexplicably, he met Gaerans.

Diran: And then he died.

Jinto: And then, inexplicably, he came back in Gaera.

Diran: I'd have sympathy if it didn't make less sense than my crashing into the sea.

Jinto: After finding out that his superhero powers weren't making him popular, he became a drunk.

Diran: And then stopped, to become a superhero again. Clearly, this is the greatest advent in character depth since the Mysterious Cloaked Figure.

Fenron: I will ignore the skills for you, as they're all too inexplicable. Let us move on. To your techs.

Diran: Which are the five dumbest things I have ever seen you put on a character sheet. Our good friend Noam Brodzky has summed most of it up for us.

Jinto: Why do you do this to yourself, man?

... OK, fielding the complaints.

First, fine, fine. I'm going to up the cost on the Feat. ANYONE have a measure of how to do that?

Second, no, astral magic isn't a beam. Traditionally. Anything that says it can't be? Or at least, when the spell is cast, it LOOKS like an energy beam?

Third... you know how hard it is to interpret bulletproof skin in Philsys? It's not even that much of a tech, so just cut me some slack, OK?

Fourth, I'll never make an apology for any of my character backgrounds, so Banj's clown crew can skip it next time.

Fifth, the two magical weapons were acquired in an RP. Ask Div.

And finally, I've never really done anything to myself. I've just been put up to ridicule for simply trying to stay creative. Which really pisses me off. It's easier posting sheets here than finding more webspace, and because of it, every single little flaw in the sheet isn't just critiqued, but insulted. I'm sick of it. Want me to leave? Keep it up. I'm at the end of my patience with you people. <p>--------------------

I'm afraid you're going to have to refresh my memory on which RP it was.

As for the bulletproof skin thing..... might be able to help later on that, but a suggestion, PhilSys or not, is to come up with how he got it as part of your backstory. (If it's something inborn, it might be necessary to go further back than the character's own life to explain that.) Throwing in some sort of drawbacks might be necessary as well.

For bulletproof skin, I suggest that you split Thick Skin into several different support skills: [s]Thick Skin, [s]Advanced Parry, and [s]Missile Evasion. [s]Thick Skin would increase natural AC, and the other two would do what they always do. If you think it should give him resistance against magic (doubtful, as that's an aura strength thing), also add [s]Advanced Magic Resistance.

Should he evade because of the latter three, roleplay it as having blocked outright with his semi-imperviousness. If not, the effect is still there but the enemy hit him correctly.

This seems more a passive ability, which would be suggested by support skills. Flex, on the other hand, seems a learned technique. And it's 15 TP! That means he can use it once per day until level 3-4, which makes it pretty ineffective.

"Random Letters and Numbers" makes a good point about the Thick skin deal, and everyone should dispense with a high-five.

Mr. Dr. Sir Chuck:

The good Cap'n is correct! Astral magic involves manipulating auras, rather than generic energy beams. I have no idea why they would manifest themselves as energy beams. I suggest just changing it to light magic! Then everyone can be happy and you can have your lasers.

I'm trying really hard to hate the character like Jooie does, but it isn't working. One of his skills is "Fisticuffs". :O <p>

In other words, it works for the character. ... plus the lasers came after the transferrence to this world, so he had to have something going for him from before... <p>--------------------

... I'd like to bring something else up. Jackson's skill Flight.

The skill itself is a basic skill we use in Gaera. However we usually attribute it to someone with wings or some other form of self propulsion. Your character seems to do it by Will. I can't attack that readily, my Jeridan can use a minor levitation ability using several ranks of his chi stuff.

HOWEVER. That's not the problem. The problem IS: In a log of a very recent RP, one of Div's, as well as some accounts I've been given, Jackson can not only fly, but at a high speed, use a full hover, execute manuevers, etc, with this skill. At rank 1.

It takes a wind mage 12 ranks just to get into the air and move at running speed. Does anyone else have a problem with this? <p>

And yes, Jason, I have a big problem with the flight deal.

I also find it funny that he tried to beat up this "Jarax" guy just because apparently Jarax was evil. Not because Jarax was trying to do anything. Not because Jarax did stuff. But because he's, uh...supposedly evil.

I concur- A single rank in flight doesn't give one the agility of a fighter plane in the air. At most, it means you can actually levitate and move. Personally, I'd rule that one rank means he knows the absolute BASIC stuff out of the true basics- He perhaps knows that he has the ability, and that's it. He should not have much more than that at rank 1 flight. <p>

At least not for free. I could see an MP cost for better flight. But as it stands; given he can use it anywhere without space constrictions that the winged have to worry about, and that he can't be wing hit; I'm leaning toward what Shini says.

Also: Doug makes a good point on backstory. <p>

Goren Felson! Zombie Thief With Attitude!

Unread postby KingOfDoma » Sun Mar 13, 2005 10:13 pm

Goren Felson
zombie human
86 (appears to be 23)
5'8"
Black hair
Red eyes


Roughly 60 years ago, Goren was a lowly guard at the Doman castle, who was stationed around the kitchen, of all places. He would have minded the posting if it hadn't put him near to Augusta, the beautiful royal chef. One day, as he was shamelessly flirting with her, he slipped on a bit of cooking oil, conked his head on a colander, landed his hand in the cutlery drawer and was impaled on a carving fork.

Goren Felson was dead.

When he woke, he was not in some beautiful afterlife. Or a firefilled one, for that matter. He was in a bed in a hut somewhere... and he heard her humming. Augusta. She was in the next room, stirring a bubbling pot. And then it hit him. The STENCH. Dear gods, it was horrid. He then looked down and realized he'd dropped considerable amounts of weight, both in fat and muscle mass. His skin was starting to get chalky, his mouth was dry and... the worst part... he was starting to imagine himself cracking open Augusta's skull and having a feast.

He ran. He figured Augusta must have been some necromancer or... something. It didn't matter. He was going to stay away from her for a long time. He got himself back into the castle, and talked to the chemist there, using the oddly effective "Not me, but my FRIEND" technique. He gave him an item called a Feratus stone, a kind of bracelet that stayed on your palm. The chemist smiled when he did this, saying his "friend" would find it very handy. He kinda sluffed off the information, and made his way to his commanding officer's office, where he quit. It was amiable, and before he left, he gave the CO a pat on his bare shoulder with the stone. And that's where it clicked.

As he left, he realized he felt... juicy. He couldn't quite place it, but he felt more like his old self. He went down to the slums and touched some bum. Again... juiciness. He did again, to someone else. And he felt whole. He couldn't believe it. He was alive again. He even LOOKED like his old self. But a few hours later, he was starting to shrivel up again. The cravings came back. The stone was the only thing keeping him human.

He decided to limit human contact. Stay away from people until he needed to ... use them. Every few days, he would go into town, take from a few people, and leave again. After a few years, he got pretty good at going undetected (save for a few pitchfork/torch/farm implement wielding townsfolk every now and again.) And he even started taking THINGS from people too. You know, to pay for things. He always wanted a cabin in the woods... and anyways, nowadays, he's got it. Got the money for tools and land and everything. And today, he's going into town. Probably going to have something exciting happen to him. Ya never know...

I wonder how Augusta is doing...

Righty, I've given this a look over and, while the concept is sound, you need to do some work on Goren here.

Firstly, you need to be alot more specific about the nature of his undeath. You can try to leave it mysterious, but any GM is going to have a headache if he doesn't know how it works. You also need to explain his life draining alot better: does the stone he was given unlock some magical potential in him or is it entirely responsible for it? If the latter, he shouldn't have any magical aptitude; the Life Draining skill should be TP based. You also need to detail what the minor, appearance restoring life drain does to people (perhaps even make a tech out of it), what affect not touching up his appearance with a drain has on his stats and so on. Less vague, more detail.

Now, thieving, disguise and interior decor don't need techs. The first two can be done with simple skill rolls since they're very specific skills, and the third will just allow the GM to give Goran information about the subject. You also need to explain how he picked it up, or if it's just something he's naturally good at. Oh, and [s] and [k] skills cost 1/2 a skill point per rank, so you've got some more points to spend. Probably on guard knowledge, even if outdated. He'd probably have alot of general knowledge about Doma, seeing how he's been around for a while, and his wisdom might be a little higher.

Now, as for "Run", scrap it. It's a needless tech which represents him scarpering as fast as he can. His agility and ranks in stealth will cover all actions which fall under that umbrella.

Basics:

Race: Minotaur
Birthdate: Unknown
Height: 7'4"
Eye color: Brown
Hair color: Blue
Horns: Ivory


Background:

Technically, the king and queen of Doma are Bulworth's parents. Their copulation brought him into this world. Sure, it was because the high levels of magical energy unleashed opened a wormhole through which he fell through as a child, but how else can you put it?

Sort of left on his own, Bulworth sort of just fell into going to school, and did as well as could be expected. He didn't attend university, but got a good job at a quarry, swinging his hammer.

But, he eventually got that wanderlust that many of Doma get, and began to ply his trade at mercenary work. And, of course, he was quite good at it...

Kae'Oss Tymisonn

Unread postby KingOfDoma » Mon Oct 23, 2006 10:15 pm

Basics:

Name: Kae'Oss Tymisonn
RPer: KingOfDoma
Race: Human
Birthdate: Unknown
Height: 5'11"
Eye color: Brown
Hair color: Black


Background:

Kae'Oss has a checkered, mostly sour past. He was born to Rai'm Tymisonn and an unknown other, in the heart of Doma City. Mostly ignored by his mother and raised by his loving, but less-than-accepting uncle and aunt. (His next-to-psychotic cousins were no help either.) As he grew, he felt a sense of isolation from the family he barely knew, and didn't feel a part of. And like most kids like that, it turned him away from them and to crime.

Although never a member of an official gang, he stuck mostly to the street, only coming "home" for food and to occasionally rob them of a few gil. He loved his drink, and it loved him back. Eventually it led him to a bar with his cousin Jenna, and in a drunken rage, he beat her black and blue.

Enraged, his uncle Daenj'r cast a spell on him that forced him to stay away from his family or experience great pain. It was abused by his family members by them (and one person in particular) seeking him out, forcing the pain upon him.

This drove him to his limit.

He gathered together some of his inujin friends and came up with a plot to kidnap and torture his entire family. It nearly worked, if not for the intervention of his mother at the last moment to save them all. Including Kae'Oss.

For his crime, he was sent to prison for months. But thankfully, his regret and sadness translated to good behaviour in the joint, and he was set free early. But he knew he had to make up with his family, whether or not they ever accepted him again. It was just something he had to do...

Right, so just analyzing this, there's a few things that stick out to me, but I might as well do a full statistical critique, just in case.

You actually have spent a total of 20, not 21 points. As a result, you have a spare point to spend. I would suggest doing so and adjusting stats accordingly.

As much as I'd like to end the critique there, there are a number of significant issues with the sheet. I do not know whether they have to do with simply doing some of the skillwork when tired, or just plain laziness. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you meant to hit 4 on Shadow magic--which would explain both the 5 in that on a freshly-created character and the excess skillpoint. The [s] and [k] skills, though...ugh. Any [k] skill is <WIS>, and no matter how you protest, drawing is not a [k] skill--I'd argue that it would fall under any of the "Craft" skills--which are normal cost. [s]Observation is <INT>, Tactics and Survival are [k] skills.

You incidentally have not listed applied skill and equipment mods for each of the weapons. This DOES matter, as one can (only permanently; they can't be shifted) place points in either AT or PA through such skills--something I will note later. Likewise, for the sake of the GMs, please post your equipment stats.

And now for the techs--uh, what? You've GOT to be kidding me here. The spells are fine--standard Spellbook fare there, save for Invert, which is interesting to say the least. I'd advise that Invert would be against either the target's MBLK or the MATK score of the effect, whichever is higher. Seems to be a bit higher than it is, but that may just be me. However...the weapon techs. My brain hurts. A lot. I'll let Fancy Swing slide with a cost increase, but the one that really irks me is the misnamed "Triple Strike." This isn't exactly "triple strike" as much as it is "god-knows-how-many-hits" strike. There's a specific reason the "hit-increaser" techniques specify ONE extra attack. The potential damage increase is just far too high. Too much gain for too little cost, really, even if he does end up expending all his TP in one shot. There's no real reason for Savage Pounce to be necessary as a tech at all--read up on the grappling rules in the Wiki.

So, yeah. You have things to fix. I suggest you fix them before including your character in a PS RP. <p>"DO YOU THINK YOU CAN DEFEAT US? OUR TREASURE MAY BE HEAVY, BUT WE ARE LIGHT AS WIND. ONLY MAGICS MAY HURT US, BUT ONLY WE KNOW WHICH ONES." --Omoikane, Digital Devil Saga 2</p>

I remember we discussed a sliding MP/HP cost for spells using his blood depending on what he was creating. A few darts will likely be less taxing for him (in terms of energy and health) than a saber would. Even a whip would take a great deal of blood to create. This also applies to what we discussed about armor.

I don't remember the precise figures, and as this was pre-AIM 6.0, you likely don't have a log of it either. But I think that his blood weapon tech should be a spell that costs him MP instead of TP. HP cost is fine.

Weapons he can conjure should likely be scaled by rank as well; I forget whether we talked about that. So at rank 1 he can create throwable darts, rank 2 a whip, and rank 4 a saber. Considering he still needs a skill to use all of these things, I don't think the rank prereqs should be any higher than that. Maybe at rank 6 he can start creating armor.

Creating things from his own blood is an awesome idea and I'm interested to see how this sheet actually ends up looking. I just wanted you to be aware that he's likely going to need a different spell with different MP costs for everything he creates.

Side note: Yay for the psionics disclaimer!

Ideas for other spells/techs/Irish folk dances:

Since part of his schtick is that he achieves supernatural effects with his blood, it wouldn't be unreasonable in my mind for him to be able to do things like minor healing, for example. Get those platelets a-movin'.

Now, I'm well aware that he needs the blood to be out and exposed in order to use it, but I wanted to state it before anybody came into the thread and wanted to know why he didn't just blow people up from the inside by fucking with their blood. However! Other damaging effects he could accomplish:

-Decompression sickness, something he'd potentially be familiar with as a sailor. Divers get it. This causes inert gases (mainly nitrogen), normally dissolved in body fluids and tissues, to come out of physical solution and form gaseous bubbles. Bubbles in your blood suck. This could cause all kinds of problems depending on his hemokinesis rank, how well he rolls, or how much MP he's willing to pay.

-Hemophilia, the reverse of how he'd be able to do the healing things. Arrin casts this spell one round, and then for rank rounds afterward, opponents end up suffering damage over time from normal melee attacks just because they can't seem to stop bleeding.
