Title: Legend System: The Drinking Game
Post by: Sunflower on August 12, 2013, 07:51:29 AM
Hello, everyone!

I've played a few sessions in Legend System, and not only found it quite enjoyable, but also noticed a few patterns. And where are patterns, there's an excuse to swallow up hectolitres of blackcurrant, known at a site you people sure never heard of as Drinking Game (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DrinkingGame).

The premise of this thread is simple: if you find something to happen interestingly often when roleplaying with Legend System, we add a rule to drink shot whenever this occurs. If the previously linked article didn't explain it clear enough, hopefully the examples below will.
Note that those entries don't have to be entirely about character creation/development; those are just the first ones which came to my mind. ^^" If post edition magicks will let me, I'll progressively add new entries here whenever I notice some interesting entry.

Character Creation/Development:

 - Take a shot whenever a character (player or not) turns out to have Shaman class
- Take a shot whenever a "paladin" has the Judgment track, but no other Paladin track (same goes for "rogue" and Esoterica Radica)
- Take one whenever a character (player or not) turns out to have By Will Sustained feat


(I'm not sure if this thread would rather belong here or General Legend Discussion, but found this place to be "safer" ^^")

I'm bizarrely amused...

Character Creation
Take a shot whenever a "paladin" has the Judgment track, but no other Paladin track.
Edit to add: Also, as above, substituting "rogue" and "Esoterica Radica" for "paladin" and "Judgment."

@St. Salieri: guilty as charged, all three shots at once, in the rogue's case (more specifically, a vampiric necromancer runesong scholar rogue; and she even has it all explained in backstory!). ;)

I'm glad it's not just me; I don't feel quite as guilty now!  ;D

Thought of another (also in Character Creation):
Take a shot whenever a character uses Full Buy-In to get its class's slow track in a medium progression (e.g., a Barbarian who multiclasses out of Path of Destruction, then takes Path of Destruction in the FBI slot).

Take a shot whenever a character has more than one Elemental track (cough cough Mystify cough).

Take a shot whenever a character blows all of their Legendary abilities on AoE enlargers (or is that just me?).

Take a shot whenever someone has any combination of Necromancer, Elementalist, and/or Just Blade.

Necromancer/Elementalist is actually a solid combo, with the right selection.
