This is a collabrative project between myself, Aneastin, and Aesoth. I'll be a GM once I've finished everything.

Kudos to the Fallout Series. The SPECIAL mechanics and such were really useful here.

This is by no means finished and very much a work in progress. Will be edited regularly until finished

Yeah, this is REALLY in-depth, I'm gonna hold off until it's about done so I don't have to read any rehash. This could seriously use some down-scaling. It's like if you played FFVIII, for example, and it just kinda dumped all the tutorials on you at the same time, as well as having you manage the Eidolons' abilities.

To be absolutely honest, this is mostly a place for Aesoth and myself to keep track of all the stats systems and such in order so that we can both keep track of edits and such... And it's nearing completion to the point where I'll soon be releasing a character page. We don't need much else to get this off the ground.

Post  NebulaGregarZX on Tue Jan 22, 2013 11:44 pm

Guardian Forces (GFs), Haar. They weren't called Eidolons in FFVIII. That aside, pretty much. Only it's even more complicated; you have to figure out your individual stats for the right balance. It's like power-playing a game, where you actually run calculations on what would be most effective. And it's either that, or risk having a completely ineffective setup. I'd rather not bother with stats that actually affect story; if a character who, by way of narrative, is guaranteed victory, loses a fight, for no reason other than that the other guy had the better setup, then I find that there's a problem.

The positive, though, is that you can't establish an overpowered character out of the blue. However... thing is, power levels are BS. Remember DBZ? The reason those power levels were implemented was specifically to show how USELESS and UNRELIABLE they were.

This would be the main reason I came up with this idea. I wanted to start an RP where everyone had a realistic chance. And it won't be a matter of power playing to make a character that can win. There will be a possible victory for any character type.. (Assuming you don't take Purity Sue which is essentially assigning yourself to an early grave.)

Alright, noted. Just making the point that it seems really overwhelming.

Nebula, I don't give a damn what they're called, you know exactly what I mean. Also, summoning them is pretty useless...

Be happy that I'm not writing down the calculations that derive the secondary stats on here. THAT would be going too in depth.

Post  Haar_Dragon on Wed Jan 23, 2013 2:38 am

I dunno, I know you put up the sheet already, but I don't feel like the character I have in mind really fits into any of those cliques. Is there one for, say Average Joe? Or perhaps Otaku? Internet person? Gamer??? I just don't feel like the character I have in mind really fits those. If you can't come up with more stats or just don't feel like it, that's fine, I'm just saying, I don't feel like everything is really covered by those groups.

"Nerd" I feel covers those last three. Average joe, however you have a point on. Although, I think the idea they had was to cover basic high school archetypes. I'm not saying average joe doesn't apply there, just that I see where they're coming from.

This looks really interesting, almost like a professional RPG. And I agree about the Average Joe, and perhaps a class for those who frequently get into fights (Troublemaker?). And how will obtaining feats, AP, etc go?

Post  Admin (HalcyonWandering) on Wed Jan 23, 2013 3:16 am

Yeah, that was the general plan. It was to follow those archtypes.

Also, if you want an Average Joe

Goth
Stats
Str: 4
Int: 4
Dex: 4
Cor: 4
Crm: 4
Res: 10
Agi: 4
Per: 4
End: 4
Lck: 4

Take Perky Goth at first level up and you have a flat five rating in every stat. That's what the Trait is for actually since the first level up will be fairly fast.

Also, Aesoth and I are still working on the exact system of level up... It's a slow, steady process.

Note: This RP isn't limited solely to contributions by Aesoth, Aneastin, and myself. You guys are free to submit ideas for just about anything (which is why I gave the abbreviations for EVERYTHING's stats). Just it'll have to be approved by me or Aesoth before it comes into work in the game proper.

I just noticed you didn't specify age in the character sheet. Was that intentional, or just a mistake?

All I'm saying is that I am in high school and I don't fit in with any of those groups. I just feel like they weren't really all-inclusive, although I could BS something together for reasons not to fit in with certain groups and yet get along with them. *shrug* Eh, I'm just being nitpicky I guess.

Oops. I remember height and weight but forget age... smooth.

I'm the same way. I don't fit into a "clique" it was just a convenient term to use for classes/jobs in a high school setting.

.... D&D. The word and does not start with an 'n'. Anyway, my nitpicking pointless shi* aside, I do have another question, and, feel free not to answer if you haven't worked it out or want to explain it in-story, but how does the apocalypse come about here?

Okay, after reading through parts of it more thoroughly, I noticed the word "alien", so I'm assuming that relates to the cause of apocalypse, though, I also noticed something else:

Survival: Determined by Resistance, Endurance, and Intelligence, determines the NV obtained from food

How does intelligence affect how much nutritive value is gained from food? You may wish to rephrase the description of "Survival", is all I'm saying.

And now I've read through the rest, noticed the description of the gas, and realized I'm an idiot. But, aside from that:

Admin (HalcyonWandering) wrote:Be happy that I'm not writing down the calculations that derive the secondary stats on here. THAT would be going too in depth.

You guys are gonna think I'm crazy, but... Please, do this. I'd like to understand the math behind this.

Some food won't be actually the most edible things out there. Having sufficient knowledge of what is and isn't edible and how to prepare it for eating would effect how much of some things are actually edible.

For example, most people would just toss chicken bones. You can eat the marrow inside the bone in a pinch for extra protein as difficult to digest as that is.

Also, I'll work on editing in the equations then.
