Title: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP General Discussion thread
Post by: Greybender on September 12, 2013, 03:45:11 PM
"Deep in the heart of the plane known as the Outlands, inside a tremendous floating ring above the infinitely tall Spire, is the city of Sigil, most renowned of all the planar metropolises in the multiverse. In the city of Sigil, there sits a large conglomeration of huge, majestic buildings and bustling populace. It is the LegendAcademy, a school where the young, old and ageless,  men, women and those of a stranger gender , demons, angels and constructs...  are formed to be legends."

Let that suffice for a short intro at the moment.

So I'm finally done with my exams(yaay) and waiting for my diploma to be approved, so I'll have a bit of time on my hands for the next few months for GMing a PBP.

What is this PBP?
It will be a mix between the settings of Sigil Prep (http://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/Sigil_Prep_%283.5e_Campaign_Setting%29) and RWBY (http://roosterteeth.com/archive/?id=6052&v=more).


What system are we using?
Legend.

How many players?
Right now it depends on the interest, but I'm looking for something like 4 players per group.

What level are we starting at?
8, though I could go with level 6, i people are more interested in it.

How are ability scores assigned
Standard array.

What content is allowed?
Everything official and homebrew on a case by case basis.

Style and backstory stuff:
The style of play will be a balance between RP and combat, you are widely encouraged  to shape the world with your backstory as much as you want to.

Premise and general changes to the setting
Spoiler
Premise: You have received an invitation to enroll in the prestigious Legend Academy, whether you had enough skill, the right connections or enough money to enroll is up to you and your backstory. Legend academy offers a three 'year' program, divided into six semesters with various interconnected programs of which an individual can choose three, though some take it an extra mile and take a fourth program, which has a negative side effect of exhausting their ability to chub it up with various magi-tech items. All the programs have one thing in common, they are designed to push the individuals abilities up to eleven and form them into legends.

On legends: Every individual, who is [Legendary] or has reached level 11 is counted as a legend. Legends are the structural support for the multi verse, they exist within the bounds of believability and perpetuate the narrative laws of the planes. They are the only creatures that can cross the borders of the planar breaches and survive for some time. As such, they are a vital part in the process of the continuation of existence, without which the breaches would destroy the planes, until they collapse into a single point in the possibility matrix.

On Breaches: Breaches are typographical mistakes, spilled coffee cups, torn out pages, time travel paradoxes and bad fanfiction crossovers. Small breaches, like aberrations are generally not harmful and are quickly incorporated within the planar logic, but larger breaches, especially expending ones can loosen the structural fabric and destroy large segments and whole concepts. Only legends have enough of an internal structure, to exist within breaches and impose the laws of the planes upon them. In essence breaches are the far realms invading the multiverse.
^ This is just a short outline to explain the function and existence of Legend academy, if you have issues and questions don't hesitate. I'll be working on the curriculum and the structure of the academy over the next week, so if you have preferences, please tell me what they are.

A handy link to the teams

I'll be posting more detailed information on the setting in the next few days. If you have questions about the setting, characters and other stuff, don't hesitate to ask.

Potentially interested. School settings tend to have more potential than they let on, especially if this one can get way from the fixed age groups. Maybe I should try a more social character for this setting...

Okay, what the hell is RWBY? I keep hearing about it, but I can't find a decent synopsis or summary, and the trailer just made me more confused than anything.

Long story short, RWBY is about teenagers at a school for monster hunters in a world that is frigging FULL of monsters.

Long story long, it's the passion project of Monty Oum, who came to the public's attention first with an animation of Samus Aran and Master Chief fighting and teaming up, then with a series of animations of Final Fantasy girls fighting Dead or Alive girls.  Then Rooster Teeth hired him to work on Red vs. Blue, and eventually, gave him the go ahead for this show.

There's actually FOUR trailers, one for each of the four main characters: Red (Ruby Rose), White (Weiss Scheele), Black (Blake Belladonna), and Yellow (Yang Xiao Long), produced in that order.  They get progressively better, and I think they started out pretty good.

You can watch all the trailers and all of the show so far at Roosterteeth.com, and all of that together might take you like... two hours.  Worth checking out, IMO.

It's cool, I meant to have about 4 players per group, so depending on the interest I may be going with up to 3 groups. The groups will not be isolated from one another, but the primary interactions should be between the members within a group.

P.S. I'll put more information up in a few hours, so stay tuned.

Post by: Don Jentleman on September 13, 2013, 11:49:15 AM
So, will the classes still be the same as the ones in sigil academy, and we just fluff accordingly, or will they be altered to better fit Legend's selection of tracks?
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Greybender on September 13, 2013, 12:02:52 PM
Honestly I'm more inclined towards the second option, though I'll try to preserve as much as possible from the setting.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Don Jentleman on September 13, 2013, 12:07:49 PM
I think alot of the classes can be preserved, but there are some that might prove too much for fluffing. Well, we can probably use homebrew to cover the gaps, but as you said, that's a case by case basis.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: St. Salieri on September 13, 2013, 12:13:53 PM
I'm interested, but a bit apprehensive: This would be both my first Legend game and my first PBP game, and I wouldn't want to risk dragging things down. (Not that I expect to have or cause too much trouble, but one never knows.) If you're willing to put up with a [Total Newb], I'll happily join!

(FWIW, leaning toward Just Blade/Arcane Secrets/Vigilante, which actually seems to fit the RWBY aesthetic pretty well.)

(Also, I vote for Level 8.)

I vote for Lvl 8 too. Grey, I'm retooling some of the sheets as I look over them. Most notable is a total build rework for Zach and there may be one coming for Naur as well. Additionally, I may add one or two to the listing because I'll probably scrap Romanov and/or Ezumik because neither really fit the RWBY/Sigil Prep tone and style very well.

I'm a little uncertain about the requirements for characters. Do they need to be from one of those D&D realms mentioned in the Sigil website? Eberron is the only one I've really ever heard of. I've never really been a fan of using default settings...  :-\

I just don't know a lot about those realms/planes and the race descriptions don't really tell me much about actually being one. Am I suppose to be one of those races?

If being knowledgable on these things is detrimental, I'll sit this out. That will be best for all involved.

Post by: Unit001 on September 13, 2013, 07:10:20 PM
That's cool, most of the best SP characters were from Eberron, like Roxy, Amizath, and Unit.

Also, Eberron Warforged are Decepticons.  ALL HAIL MEGATRON!

I don't think you need to be familiar with Sigil/DnD lore. Sigil is basicly this city that sits in on of those places where almost all planes have gates to, including different multiverses in some canons. If I understood Greybender right in chat, I was given the green light to import my characters directly from my homebrew setting, for instance, and have them basicly planehopped to Sigil. Also, Greybender, would Verdant (http://www.ruleofcool.com/smf/index.php/topic,1023.0.html) or Crazed Inventor (http://www.ruleofcool.com/smf/index.php/topic,512.msg10197.html) be kosher?

Sweet, then I'm going full buy-in as a ranger sentient construct with professional soldier, construct racial track, heavy weapons, and vigilante.  It's robot Batman, with guns!
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Qazarar on September 14, 2013, 01:37:48 AM
Alright, I have a bit of a concept. Ranger base, with Reign of Arrows, Battle's Tempering, and Acrobatic Adept. Likely I will add a full buy in, but I am not sure yet.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Castodas on September 14, 2013, 02:29:41 AM
This setting does sound really cool, and the RWBY stuff was fun- though I still need to watch them all.

I plan on staying, I'm just going to sit back a bit and observe what everyone else comes up with first though.

Post by: Don Jentleman on September 14, 2013, 02:28:07 PM
I'm actually thinking of making a Necromancer/Demon/Knowing character. The only thing I'm worried about is dealing enough damage/disruption to be considered worthwhile, although it will make a great social character.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Qazarar on September 14, 2013, 07:35:28 PM
I might add full buy in for arcane secrets to add some versatility.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Don Jentleman on September 14, 2013, 07:41:55 PM
If you want versatility, then why don't you grab the Tactician Spells track instead? Ranger naturally has Int as a KDM, and it gives far more flexibility than Arcane Secrets with it's multitude of buffs and supplementary spells.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Qazarar on September 14, 2013, 08:30:36 PM
Perhaps. I haven't really decided yet. I just plan to add a little magic to an otherwise martial character to give a few extra options.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: munchlord on September 14, 2013, 08:42:11 PM
Since a lot of people wanna know what's up before making chars themselves, I figure I'll type up a blurp for each of the characters I'm considering, as well as their build and general mechanics purpose.

Amalia: Apprentice and foster daugther to an old hermit druid who's come to the city and academy to learn more and to fly from the nest, so to speak, Amalia is ignorant of most things pertaining to city life, including the particulars of the concept of 'Money'. She's outgoing and open minded though with a slight tendency to naivity. Her magic focuses on plants for the most part. Build is Verdant/Mechanist Savant (reflavor)/Arcane Secrets (if Verdant doesn't get approved, I'm not sure I'll be able to build her to my satisfaction) with a strong focus on utility and support. She probably won't be killing things much, but she is likely to make enemies easier to kill and allies harder to hurt.

Arcath d'Cardin: young, intelligent and ambitious magitech expert. He uses rune-based magitech and he is turning himself into a magitech creation via writing said runes on his skin, turning his insides into a construct while leaving himself looking mostly like a heavily tattooed human. He is fairly cold and calculating, with good intentions but a willingness to adopt questionable means to get there and some rather unorthodox ideas from time to time. Build is Mechanist Savant/Sentient Construct/Elementalist (or Crazed Inventor if it is approved). The build is supposed to mostly focus on damage, though it gets some support on the side from Mechanist Savant and utility on the side of Inventor is approved.

Nathan Reaver: Once in a while, things just go horribly wrong. Nate is one such example, a soul predisposed towards kindness being born a devil. After being exiled from Hell for being too nice, he's come to the Academy hoping to find a place to belong. Build is Just Blade/Elementalist/Serpent Discipline/Judgement off of the Paladin chassis. The purpose is a mixed damage Bruiser, powering elemental blasts into his grim heritor and smacking people over the head with fire and brimstone. He is mainly designed as an offensive character, with the judgement immunities and such primarily there to give him some inevitability (and also, flavor!!)

Naur d'Cardin: Naur is a cheery, energetic and somewhat erratic girl with an always positive approach to life. She is very outgoing. Beside her considerable talent for wind magic, she cheerleads as a hobby and a way to stay in shape when not fighting stuff. Build is Just Blade/Air Elemental/Acrobatic Adept (though it may be subject to change) and the main purpose of it is to make positioning hell for the enemy by slowing things with gust and throwing people around with mental thrust. She'll also soon come into reasonable amounts of AoE damage with gust when that option opens.

Victoria d'Cardin: Victoria is Naur's sister and she's considerably more serious and studious to say the least. She's still open to other people, and can be very playful in her own way, but her approach is vastly different. She is a talented Telekinetic. Build is Serpent Discipline/Crane Discipline/Earth Elemental and this is obviously very reflavored, with it all mechanically being telekinesis instead of martial arts and earth/gravity magic. This is pending a small for the sake of flavor mechanics change I $noted Greybender about in chat, but I can make it work without it.... I think. Though I suspect she has the potential to deal quite a bit of damage as well, her main purpose is disruption, using combat maneuvers and her speed to throw people around left right and center. In a level, she will be making melee attacks, and hence combat maneuvers, out to [Close] range, giving her disruption a considerable range.

Zaccarias Caine: Zack is a musician in peaceful surroundings and a musician in combat, more specifically a swords dancer. He uses rythm, timing and a touch of magic to speed across the battlefield, slashing foes to pieces and invoking sound-based powers as his dance builds to crescendo. Beyond that, he's a party dude and a bit of a ladies man, though a good half of his flirtatiousness is just jokes. He's got a considerable love for alcohol as well, and will do his utmost to attend ALL the frat parties. Build is Swashbuckler/Escoterica Radica/Iron Magi and the main focus is mobility and damage output.

Post by: Castodas on September 14, 2013, 10:17:14 PM
So I watched the rest of the trailers and the first episode.
First I want to say that the red and the yellow girl are probably my favorites, kind of leaning towards yellow.
Second, the white girl's trailer reminded me of that movie "sucker punch" though I hope her background isn't so dark.

Thanks Munchlord, I'm basically seeing that there really aren't any restrictions to the character design concept. So now I'm more comfortable with this.

I'll begin seriously thinking about what I will be doing.
However, I have a couple more questions:
First, our character's need to find a curriculum based on the Sigil web pages right?

Second, so I'm not getting any wrong ideas, our characters can have any background we come up with? Can I establish my own realm for my character to come from? What would you require from us if you let us do that?

Third, looking at the Sigil pages, the setting sounds like typical D&D fantasy; but RWBY looks like a more futuristic/steam-punk setting.  So can you please explain the setting a bit further?
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Unit001 on September 14, 2013, 11:34:16 PM
I prefer White, she's the only one who doesn't use a gun of some kind.

My character is a warforged created by the Lord of Blades using his repaired creation forge in the Mournlands.  Unit001 was basically a prototype, a test bed for various systems, and as such his skills are fairly diverse.  He can deploy traps, has built-in weapons, excels athletically and has a strong superiority complex.  It's not that there's anything wrong with being organic, but he's just better than you.  He also has to get a complete cleaning every week or so, because you meatbags are so dirty.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Castodas on September 14, 2013, 11:51:20 PM
I guess that is why I lean towards Yellow. Yeah, she uses guns but the martial aspect of them is very appealing to me; and as much as I like swords, for some reason smash and bash gives me good feelings.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check

I want you in my group.

I certainly wouldn't object to that; thank you for the support! ("Melting Pot of Friendship," indeed.)  :)


Following munchlord's example, a bit more about the character I'm planning on:

Spoiler
Roland LastNameToBeDetermined (I'm rubbish at naming characters  :-[)
Human Sage (Arcane Secrets / Just Blade / Vigilante)
Trained Skills: Acrobatics, Arcana, Athletics, Engineering, Perception, Vigor
Notable Feats: Blacksmith, Safekeeper Adept
Combat Style: Melee attacks, some control/debuffing via Arcane Secrets

Roland is the latest in a moderately famous family of inventors. While he enjoys magical engineering, he dreams of using his skills in a more direct fashion: namely, hunting monsters. His technical skills are well developed (he designed and built most of his equipment--including his signature weapon, armor, and "mount"--himself), but he has relatively little combat experience. Somewhat shy and reserved by nature, he has come to Sigil Prep/Beacon Academy to prove to his family--and himself--that he has what it takes to fight the Good Fight.

Post by: Qazarar on September 15, 2013, 12:54:01 AM
Yeah, I think I'll take Don's suggestion. Ranger  with Reign of Arrows, Battle's Tempering, Acrobatic Adept, and Tactician Spellcasting. Overall, the quick and accurate gunlsinger with a few tricks up her sleeve. And when I say a few tricks, I mean more utility magic than most wizards. I have a bit of a personality concept worked out, but I need to hammer out the details.

Post by: Unit001 on September 15, 2013, 01:01:06 AM
Unit's a Ranger/Sentient Construct, with Professional Soldier, Vigilante and Heavy Weapons.  He's sort-of Athletics focused skill wise but has Arcana and Engineering.  In combat he's pretty balanced between range and melee and has a few extra senses thanks to SC.  He's intended to be mobile and use ranged combat and traps as much as he can, but can hold his own in melee.

I don't have a name yet, but I'm going to make a derpy goth chick.  A nice girl who had an encounter with a cursed artifact (specifically, a knitting needle) and now she's Just Blade/Lich/Necromancer.  The cursed needle will of course be her Grim Heritor.

Ok, I think I have my basic theme down. A heavily implanted creature with a strong affinity towards fire.

Let me know if I'm not doing this right:
'Utter Brute' racial with 'Ranger's Battle's Tempering' Multi-classed with 'Fire elemental' and FBI 'Sentient Construct'.

I swear one of these days building a character will be a breeze for me. Let me know if what I came up with is impossible. I think action slots are distributed well enough; lots of passive abilities. I almost went with Elementalist.

I'll go deeper into this concept if I get no arguments.

I'm pretty sure that works just fine. You just need to decide if you're running with Utter Brute or Sentient Construct chassis.

Now onto the answering of questions:

I'm a little uncertain about the requirements for characters. Do they need to be from one of those D&D realms mentioned in the Sigil website? Eberron is the only one I've really ever heard of. I've never really been a fan of using default settings...  :-\

I just don't know a lot about those realms/planes and the race descriptions don't really tell me much about actually being one. Am I suppose to be one of those races?

If being knowledgable on these things is detrimental, I'll sit this out. That will be best for all involved.


I don't think you need to be familiar with Sigil/DnD lore. Sigil is basicly this city that sits in on of those places where almost all planes have gates to, including different multiverses in some canons. If I understood Greybender right in chat, I was given the green light to import my characters directly from my homebrew setting, for instance, and have them basicly planehopped to Sigil. Also, Greybender, would Verdant (http://www.ruleofcool.com/smf/index.php/topic,1023.0.html) or Crazed Inventor (http://www.ruleofcool.com/smf/index.php/topic,512.msg10197.html) be kosher?

Yeah I think those are okay. If you don't know the races from D&D you can make up your own, though I have to warn you that it has to have awesome fluff :P


I'll begin seriously thinking about what I will be doing.
However, I have a couple more questions:
First, our character's need to find a curriculum based on the Sigil web pages right?

Second, so I'm not getting any wrong ideas, our characters can have any background we come up with? Can I establish my own realm for my character to come from? What would you require from us if you let us do that?

Third, looking at the Sigil pages, the setting sounds like typical D&D fantasy; but RWBY looks like a more futuristic/steam-punk setting.  So can you please explain the setting a bit further?
1. The curriculum will be represented by your chosen tracks and classes.

2. Stick to the planescape cosmology and explain how your realm connects to it, what are the main differences and how it is represented in Sigil.

3. The setting will mainly represent D&D cosmology with RWBY magi-tech aesthetics. I'll post more info over the next week, if you have specific questions I'll try to incorporate the answers into the setting info.

 
Three questions, Greybender.

Can I use Ego Check?
Can I use revised versions of published content provided they're official reworks?
How do you like lasagna rolls?

1.You can use Ego check, if the number of players within a group is odd.

2. You can use it, if it's mostly finished.

3. I like meat lasagna rolls, cause I had too many filled with spinach, though if you have other good types I always welcome recipes :)

First sheet? Mmmmaybe!

Linna Cero (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1CFTvn0quB3R25ST1FGYTVVdms/edit?usp=sharing).

Seems okay on a quick look, I'll look at it more throughly tonight.

Grey, how do you feel about Yoder's ghost track (http://www.ruleofcool.com/smf/index.php/topic,875.0.html)? Ghostwalk is a lot like Sigil Prep for me, 'cause I like it a lot but have never had an opportunity to try it out.

Seems cool, doesn't seem to be something obviously wrong with it, so if no objections come up, go ahead and use it.

Following munchlord's example, a bit more about the character I'm planning on:

Spoiler
Roland LastNameToBeDetermined (I'm rubbish at naming characters  :-[)
Human Sage (Arcane Secrets / Just Blade / Vigilante)
Trained Skills: Acrobatics, Arcana, Athletics, Engineering, Perception, Vigor
Notable Feats: Blacksmith, Safekeeper Adept
Combat Style: Melee attacks, some control/debuffing via Arcane Secrets

Roland is the latest in a moderately famous family of inventors. While he enjoys magical engineering, he dreams of using his skills in a more direct fashion: namely, hunting monsters. His technical skills are well developed (he designed and built most of his equipment--including his signature weapon, armor, and "mount"--himself), but he has relatively little combat experience. Somewhat shy and reserved by nature, he has come to Sigil Prep/Beacon Academy to prove to his family--and himself--that he has what it takes to fight the Good Fight.

I feel a bit like playing a turret after reading that. Do you mind having an intelligent turret you can 'deploy'?

Well, let's just say that my first character idea didn't work out so well. However, I am now thinking about playing someone who can cast shaman spells, either focusing on incantations and supplying massive healing and some damage or Bastion and being a melee aura powerhouse. Either way, just posting to say I'm still interested, although I can see myself having problems with a background.

Here is a draft for my character background. No real set location. I'll be happy to fit him anywhere and make changes as necessary, I think the only potential issue is with my cyber terms. I'm really just trying to imply that he has implants that are both visible and under the flesh.

Spoiler
Fars Lory
Fars is an orphan. His origins are unknown but his deep red hair is very unusual for a human. He has always displayed unusual levels of strength and an infatuation with fire- but what kid didn't like playing with fire? He played outdoors every chance he could and on very bright sunny days he would often sneak out.
Fars ran away from the orphanage at fifteen to see the world and to find purpose. A year later he began working with a criminal organization, mostly because it was the only paying thing that didn't care about how educated you were. He did well, and in the first years he achieved unusually high ranks for someone still so new.
After 14 months they offered a proposition to him. He would run a special sect of the organization, but first be would be required to undergo a very intricate cyber-wear procedure. Fars accepted without hesitation and the procedure was accomplished without any problems. So for the rest of that year he conducted special operations with a group cyber-equipped individuals.
Throughout that year he had the itch to go someplace new and be somebody different and to really discover what all this meant to him. So he left without any warning and his entire sect followed him. He didn't mind, they were all brothers and sisters to him and he wasn't about to tell somebody else they couldn't do what they wanted. So they started off having some fun and through time began taking mercenary jobs.
One day, however, a special job came to him. An offer to join Legend Academy with the award being true mastery of his talents and abilities. Like a falcon to its prey, he took off right then and there; leaving the letter to float to the ground.

Fars is confident and a free spirit. Not really much for charisma, some people just have a knack for following him and he just doesn't care, however he certainly doesn't mind the company. His own self pride and ambition is what really drives him and he hopes to discover what his true purpose in life is here at Legend Academy.

~EDIT~
Rewording from Sigil academy to Legend academy.

Hi, most of you don't know me but I came over during the temporary refuge by MinMaxBoards (MMX), though I've been following Legend for a while now. Even began running a game a while ago, though it fell through as I had difficulty keeping up the pace. I was wondering if there was still room in this, as I've been wanting to play in a Legend game for a while now, and I just recently got into RWBY and have had a general character concept I've wanted to play for a while, too.

Idea would be to play a bruiser/brawler wielding a power gauntlet. Kind of similar to Yang (the Yellow trailer for those who've only seen the trailers), though not as much in personality. Thinking of Just Blade/Iron Magi/Disciple of the Crane/Smiting using Full Buy In and Guild Initiation feat to accomplish, and Sage as base to bring everything together. Kind of waffling on Smiting versus something with a bit more utility, but not much is catching my eye.

If you're full-up, I can understand. I'd definitely like to at least see how this game develops. :)

I could get behind that, but I think I'd rather the "turret" be fully autonomous: more like a robotic familiar/bodyguard than a piece of equipment (which is what "deploy" suggests to me). It could have been either built by Roland himself, or (for more roleplaying potential?) provided by his family to keep an eye on him.

Also, I might have to insist it be a small, turtle-like biped with big eyes and a large helmet.   ;)

According to the edit to the OP, it looks like the students will be trained to fix major breaches in reality, rather than just fighting monsters.

In any case, I've made my character: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B81cxZbXH1xfUFZmTk1TQ1I2ZzA/edit?usp=sharing

He's going to be a Gnoll Shaman, with his Bastion and Judgement abilities calling upon the spirits for protection and guidance, and the Wildborn and Shaman spells being pretty straightforward. Name and background to come soon, but you can expect him to be a very laid-back dude who may or may not be on certain kinds of herbs. He loves his spirits, but this almost seems like a cover-up for the fact that he doesn't get out much, and as a result doesn't have many friends. Likely made it into the school based on his connections with the spirits (either because of his skill in communicating with spirits, or actually asking the spirits to help him enroll in the school).

Edit: Fixed a few things, added in a lesser item, consumables appropriate for current level, a few fluff items (credits to Unit001 since he thought of it first), and a name! He will be called Kalba Ruztaf. Backstory is still being worked on.

Actually, someone pointed out to me, and i checked, that array was 2 points more than point buy. Which I understand, since point but makes it possible to stack everything on one ability. So I'm assuming 2 points were taken out to help keep it from going way overboard..  I guess.

Serpent and Iron Magi doesn't play well together until 5th circle of serpent, so I'd advice against that.

As for ability score generation, I always assume Array unless otherwise noted because IIRC, the rulebook states the other ability score generation methods to be optional rules.....

Why's that? Wouldn't the attacks from Serpent also create links, so the finishers are an option? Or am I misunderstanding? What would you suggest in place of Iron Magi, as I'm rather fond of Serpent.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: munchlord on September 17, 2013, 12:17:34 AM
Iron magi wants to create as many attacks each round as possible, both to access chain components that spend attacks and to use high cost finishers often. Serpent makes 1-2 attacks each round until 5th circle, so you will be building your chains much much slower and since you need that first attack to connect to make your maneuver and get the second attack at all, meaning that you can only sometimes use components that take up 1 attack and never use ones that take up 2 attacks.

Serpent combines reasonably well with things that grant a bonus to attack rolls that isn't fury or that provides a bonus to damage through proper means. Just Blade is an example, but you'll need either SLAs or the Strike Down feat then.

Well, my main reasoning for Serpent was for that first circle was so I can put a bunch of extra properties on Dragon Claws, to add more pain on top of the Brutal 3. I didn't even pay much attention to the rest of the track. Essentially, I was going to use the Iron Magi abilities for the most part and toss in a Serpent technique or two as needed. Also, and again, excuse my ignorance, what's an SLA?

SLA = Spell Like Ability

If it's mainly the magnum you want, I would suggest getting the Abandoned Arsenal greater magic location. Gives you Magnum and Reach on all weapons and natural weapons while its attuned. Then run with Iron Magi and some other precision/fury track, like smiting, Swashbuckler or rage/dervish. Just Blade doesn't play well with Iron Magi so I can't recommend that.

If you don't want to throw a Greater Magic Item slot at it, I strongly suggest that you drop either Serpent or Iron Magi anway for something else, seeing as throwing half your 1st circle and 90% of the remainder of the track out just for some weapon properties is kind of a waste.

Either way, I should be finishing up my sheet soon, so I guess I should get crackin' with my fluff. St. Salieri, I hope you don't mind that I stole your format. I think it's a really nice format.

Spoiler
Mordann "Dani" Geiss
Ghost Sage (Arcane Lore/Ghost/Force of Will)
Trained Skills: Stealth, History, Diplomacy, Intimidate, Perception
Notable Feats: Dread Secret, Shadow Blink
Combat Style: Support, support support. A little ranged damage? I guess, but only in service of further support.

Dani doesn't remember how she died. And she's okay with that--she figures that, if whatever it was was traumatic enough to bring her back as a ghost, she's probably better off not knowing. As a living girl, she was a mousey nobody, but becoming undead has given her a new lease on life, so to speak. She's still quiet and contemplative and tends to defer to others, but she's much more willing to stand up for herself if she feels someone is mistreating her. She had been trying to get into Legend Academy for a while before she died, to try and make something of herself for once, but the school was only interested in her once she was eligible for their undead program, which has soured her opinion of the place a bit.

Pretty close to done. A bit of clean-up and tweaking to do, but seems sound enough. Sheet is here (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0Eiyu5R9VsfS0tqUWoxSVdodUE/edit).

Background:
Spoiler
Razia Ockham grew up in a privileged household, the daughter of nobility. It could be seen in her vibrant golden eyes, a unique sign of her lineage that hinted at something special in her family's bloodline, though they were, for all intents and purposes, fully human. Razia was always spirited, and couldn't stand the prim-and-proper noble training she was subjected to daily. She longed for a grander life, one of adventure and intrigue. So, she packed up and slipped away from home. Over the course of a couple years, Razia learned all sorts of tricks and trades, but had trouble maintaining the discipline needed to follow through with any one. The monks, swordsages, and duskblades she trained with called her 'willful' and 'disrespectful,' ejecting her from their communities after a time. She would not be deterred, however, and thus began training herself, combining the principles she learned to better fit her more direct combat style. It was when she knocked out a rampaging, spellwarper Dire Boar single-handed that she caught the attention of a traveling faculty member of Legend Academy. It wasn't brute strength that caught the professor's eye, however, as Razia could hardly be described as a hulking brute. Perhaps it was the mix of strength and grace, or the pugilism carefully interwoven with spellcraft, or maybe it was even her gold eyes, but something spoke of a greater potential- That potential upon which Legends are built.

Personality:
Spoiler
Razia lives by the ideal that the simplest, or most direct, answer is usually the correct one. She tends to charge head-long into conflict, breaking down barriers whether diplomatically with a heartfelt speech or literally with an electrified punch. She's spirited and more than a little stubborn, but underneath is an abundantly kind heart. She's quick to make friends and quicker to speak her mind, often even when her opinion isn't called for, though can sometimes exhibit great shows of patience and understanding when the need is called for. Razia can also sometimes come across as a bit naive due to her candor, and isn't particularly good at lying or hiding truths unless she really focuses on it.

Grey, is Tim4488's Highly Skilled [Iconic] feat (https://docs.google.com/a/stkate.edu/file/d/0B8WZo5FfNLdUenZTUTQ2YjNSSHc/edit?usp=drive_web) too powerful? I kind of feel like it is, but if you're fine with me using it, I'm fine with not filling all my greater item slots with Worry Beads. :)

Either way, I should be finishing up my sheet soon, so I guess I should get crackin' with my fluff. St. Salieri, I hope you don't mind that I stole your format. I think it's a really nice format.

Spoiler
Mordann "Dani" Geiss
Ghost Sage (Arcane Lore/Ghost/Force of Will)
Trained Skills: Stealth, History, Diplomacy, Intimidate, Perception
Notable Feats: Dread Secret, Shadow Blink
Combat Style: Support, support support. A little ranged damage? I guess, but only in service of further support.

Dani doesn't remember how she died. And she's okay with that--she figures that, if whatever it was was traumatic enough to bring her back as a ghost, she's probably better off not knowing. As a living girl, she was a mousey nobody, but becoming undead has given her a new lease on life, so to speak. She's still quiet and contemplative and tends to defer to others, but she's much more willing to stand up for herself if she feels someone is mistreating her. She had been trying to get into Legend Academy for a while before she died, to try and make something of herself for once, but the school was only interested in her once she was eligible for their undead program, which has soured her opinion of the place a bit.

You know what? I'm going to steal that format too.

Amalia
Amalia Tessela
Druid/Dryad Shaman (Arcane Secrets/Verdant/Mechanist Savant)
Trained Skills: Acrobatics, Athlethics, Stealth, Nature, Diplomacy, Perception
Notable Feats: Guild Initiation, Into the Breach
Combat Style: Support and Area Control. A little bit of ranged damage.

Amalia doesn't remember her parents. For all her life, she's been raised by a hermit druid called Sordes, living in a swamp. Sordes, whom she refers to as her grandpa, took good care of her and when she showed affinity for druidic magic, he taught her to use it as well. His talents primarily lay in the area of insects, however, and hers was mostly plants. Thus his teachings could get her only so far, and when she was old enough he contacted an old friend from before his hermitage who got her enrolled in the Legend Academy.
Arcath
Arcath d'Cardin
Magitech Expert (Sentient Construct/Crazed Inventor/Sentient Construct)
Trained Skills: Larceny, Stealth, Arcana, Engineering, Bluff
Notable Feats: Darthmuth Secret, Skinjob
Combat Style: Ranged damage and support from MechSav (for the time being. Expect more hunger spreads than generators later on).

Arcath grew up in the gutter. His mother died when he was a kid and his father turned to drink, so Arcath ran away from home and haven't looked back since. He got involved in street kid gangs and while he was neither biggest nor strongles, he was cunning enough to weasel his way to the top of one of the gangs regardless. When the gang got a hold of some magitech, he demonstrated an uncanny talent for figuring it out, and fairly soon, magitech was all the gang was stealing. Working with that, he figured out principles that opened up a whole new world to him. Uncontent to stay in the gutter for the remainder of his life, he jumped at the chance of a scholarship to the Legend Academy the moment he found out they existed and managed to land a full scholarship with his self taught artifice skills, impressing the approval board mostly with the fact that he had been able to turn himself part construct without major accidents.
Amalia
Nathan 'Nate' Reaver
Devil Paladin (Judgement/Just Blade/Elementalist/Serpent Discipline)
Trained Skills: Athlethics, Vigor, Diplomacy, Intimidate, Perception
Notable Feats: Guild Initiation
Combat Style: Damage and crowd control.

Being born in Hell generally isn't good. Being born there when you're also a kind-hearted person and an atrocious liar is even worse. Needless to say, Nate had it rough. Abused and terrorized by near to everyone, up to and including his siblings and parents and shoved off to a bad job as a bottom rung jailor because he mad a terrible devil, the last straw was drawn when he shared his lunch with an inmate in a cell block that was on starvation week and he had his horns broken off and was exiled from Hell. From there, he went on to travel the planes for a while, discovering in the process that for the standards of anywhere that didn't consider Imps basicly a particularly smart type of parrot he was actually reasonably powerful. This lead him to try for a scholarship for the Legend Academy, having heard that it was a place with a large variety in the student body, hoping he'd find himself a home there.
Victoria
Victoria d'Cardin
Telekinetic Monk (Serpent Discipline/Crane Discipline/Earth Elemental)
Trained Skills: Vigor, Arcana, History, Bluff, Diplomacy, Intimidate
Notable Feats: Perfect Defense, Telekinetic Adept, Telekinetic Scion
Combat Style: Crowd Control, Debuffing and damage

(It gets a little hairy now, but basicly Victoria (and Naur when we get to her) are from a point a little further down the d'Cardin family tree than Arcath so it'd be shifted in the timeline a little.)
Daugther of Legend Academy graduate turned Enterprising Artificer Arcath d'Cardin, Naur was born to a life of wealth and luxuries... and expectations of excellence from her father. Eager to meet expectations, she proved a studious girl, honing her mind. That proved a good decision when she came into her telekinetic gifts at 14, much to both her and her parents' joy. When she was 18 her father paid for her entrance to the Legend Academy.
Naur
Naur d'Cardin
Wind Sage (Just Blade/Acrobatic Adept/Air Elemental)
Trained Skills: Acrobatics, Athlethics, Vigor, Bluff, Diplomacy, Perception
Notable Feats: Guild Initiation
Combat Style: Movement disruption and (soon to be AoE) damage

(See the Victoria spoiler block)
Daugther of Legend Academy graduate turned Enterprising Artificer Arcath d'Cardin, Naur was born to a life of wealth and luxuries... and expectations of excellence from her father. Lukcily for her, she provides fairly well, being as much a natural with magic as her father, but in a significantly different area. She also took up dancing and cheerleading in her spare time. When she came of relevant age, her father sent her off to Legend Academy, seeing as getting a diploma from there was just about the best thing that happened to him during his youth.
Zaccarias
Zaccarias 'Zack' Caine
Bard/Swords Dancer Rogue (Esoterica Radica/Swashbuckler/Iron Magi)
Trained Skills: Acrobatics, Athlethics, Larceny, Bluff, Diplomacy, Perception
Notable Feats: Fancy Footwork, I Am Not Left-Handed
Combat Style: Damage and mobility. A bit of disruption on the side from Iron Magi.

Zack is a born and bred Sigilian. His mother died at childbirth, so he grew up with his father who owned a small bar in the city. His father had taken a bit to drink following Zack's mother's death, but even when drunk he was a loving father, if a bit too carefree and laid back. Thus Zack's antics as a wild child were largely uncurbed and he got into trouble with other children and adults rather often, a process that taught him to be quick on his feet. Even so, he was generally well liked among the bar regulars and was taught music by one and dancing by another and when he became a teen her was taught swordsplay by a third while he taught himself to combine the three. He also picked up a habit of drinking with his old man when hanging about in the bar anyways. When he came of age, he discovered that his father had been putting money aside most of his life to pay for tuition so he could attend the Legend Academy

All the cool kids are doing it.

Unit
Unit001
Sentient Construct Ranger (Sentient Construct, Professional Soldier, Vigilante, Heavy Weapons)
Trained Skills: Athletics, Acrobatics, Arcana, Engineering, Perception
Notable Feats: Battleforged, Telekinetic Adept, Telekinetic Scion
Combat Style: Mobility and ranged firepower with battlefield control via traps

Unit is the "firstborn son" of the Lord of Blades.  There were many experiments before him, but Unit was the first functioning, unmutated warforged the Machine Messiah produced.  Delighting in his success, he decided to give his son every advantage possible.  Unit was more than glad to leave, less than a month after his birth the Lord of Blades had begun creating more.  There were far more specialized than 01, but it was the last that annoyed him the most.  The first female personality warforged, Unit004, is fanatically devoted to their father's cause and responds to any dissent or disagreement with hour-long rants (she calls them sermons) and occasionally violence.  Unit attended school in Aundair, then Morgrave in Sharn, but while he was there he heard about Legend Academy, and before he was even unpacked he was transferred out.

Iron Magi and Pro Soldier dislike one another.

Because in D&D, Rangers had the choice of ranged attack or two-weapon fighting specialization, and we don't have two-weapon fighting.

Post by: Mystify on September 17, 2013, 06:55:39 PM
iron magi and soldier aren't that bad. soldier only needs occasional swifts, and by 4th circle it gives an extra swift to run its own abilities, which could also be utilized for multiple finishers if you need. I'd say its mainly the lower-mid levels that it causes any conflict. The two can also give you an impressive AC between Kept Secret and Cadence, and a personal touch can help you snag people into melee range to qualify for chain components.

Well, if I put soldier as the fast track, first level up(I assume we will eventually become legends, so Lvl 11 should be an eventual goal.) would solve all my conflict issues. Even then, shouldn't be that big a deal till then. Okay, I think I'll go with this combo. Now, character...

Sorry, I just ran into a potential issue. 
If I have two sources of fast healing (and both even feed off from KDM), I only benefit from one right?

Not a major issue.  Sentient construct is at least giving me a second option to replace it with.

Nope; multiple sources of fast healing stack.

(In your defense, I had the same question (http://www.ruleofcool.com/smf/index.php/topic,970.msg18852.html#msg18852).)


If I have a fury bonus supporting ATTACK and a precision bonus supporting DAMAGE, do these two conflict?

'Fraid so:
"Attacks and abilities that benefit from a fury bonus to attack rolls, damage or save DCs cannot also deal damage with the [Precision] descriptor." (p. 53)

So, I've noticed that I'm going to get Fly as a movement mode twice- once from Just Blade, one I've already got from Discipline of the Crane. I really like the defensive and mobility boosts from Crane, but that one circle overlapping is nagging me. Is there something better I ought to replace it with? Should I just take the hit and enjoy the other circle benefits? And to Greybender, could I potentially homebrew a circle to replace one of the Fly circles so long as they are thematically appropriate and balanced for the track? If not, that's fine, I can either replace the track or live with the overlap.

But I'd just assume throw my question out and let someone answer when/if they have the time to answer it. You know I ask a bazillion little questions. I'd rather not bog down chat with them.

If you gain a movement mode a second time, you instead increase your movement speed by 10 ft. (pg. 192, special movement modes)

Hmm seems like there are a lot of humans participating this year, ok hope I haven't missed anything:

Grey, is Tim4488's Highly Skilled [Iconic] feat (https://docs.google.com/a/stkate.edu/file/d/0B8WZo5FfNLdUenZTUTQ2YjNSSHc/edit?usp=drive_web) too powerful? I kind of feel like it is, but if you're fine with me using it, I'm fine with not filling all my greater item slots with Worry Beads. :)

Dani looks cool, Highly skilled is sadly too strong, sorry about that. You could try to work wit the rogue chassis, if you want a lot of skills :P

Pretty close to done. A bit of clean-up and tweaking to do, but seems sound enough. Sheet is here (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0Eiyu5R9VsfS0tqUWoxSVdodUE/edit).

Background:
Spoiler
Razia Ockham grew up in a privileged household, the daughter of nobility. It could be seen in her vibrant golden eyes, a unique sign of her lineage that hinted at something special in her family's bloodline, though they were, for all intents and purposes, fully human. Razia was always spirited, and couldn't stand the prim-and-proper noble training she was subjected to daily. She longed for a grander life, one of adventure and intrigue. So, she packed up and slipped away from home. Over the course of a couple years, Razia learned all sorts of tricks and trades, but had trouble maintaining the discipline needed to follow through with any one. The monks, swordsages, and duskblades she trained with called her 'willful' and 'disrespectful,' ejecting her from their communities after a time. She would not be deterred, however, and thus began training herself, combining the principles she learned to better fit her more direct combat style. It was when she knocked out a rampaging, spellwarper Dire Boar single-handed that she caught the attention of a traveling faculty member of Legend Academy. It wasn't brute strength that caught the professor's eye, however, as Razia could hardly be described as a hulking brute. Perhaps it was the mix of strength and grace, or the pugilism carefully interwoven with spellcraft, or maybe it was even her gold eyes, but something spoke of a greater potential- That potential upon which Legends are built.

Personality:
Spoiler
Razia lives by the ideal that the simplest, or most direct, answer is usually the correct one. She tends to charge head-long into conflict, breaking down barriers whether diplomatically with a heartfelt speech or literally with an electrified punch. She's spirited and more than a little stubborn, but underneath is an abundantly kind heart. She's quick to make friends and quicker to speak her mind, often even when her opinion isn't called for, though can sometimes exhibit great shows of patience and understanding when the need is called for. Razia can also sometimes come across as a bit naive due to her candor, and isn't particularly good at lying or hiding truths unless she really focuses on it.

Looks good, I'm a bit surprised you haven't taken the strike down feat...are you planning to get your SLA from somewhere else?


You know what? I'm going to steal that format too.

These look cool, would you have a preference for any of them. Btw how did you imagine running Victoria and Naur, them going to Legend academy together, a year apart...?

All the cool kids are doing it.


xD haha...the only thing you could add to this armored fortress is Power armor, sadly it hasn't been updated in a while...

Question- how in-depth will the classes at the Academy be portrayed? 'Cause I'm curious as to how one gets taught the Path of Rage. :P

Classes where more than one person is participating will most likely be portrayed at least once, if somebody would like to have his class portrayed, you can ask and I'll make a sub-thread of it.
The first years of the Rage class, are being taught how to get even angrier than they ever were in their life, they are also trained to take up a position in granadeball, though only those who took it as a major are likely to be accepted into the team, since they eventually learn to ignore the cheerleaders.

Ok, I've got my character pretty much under wraps.  I should be able to post it in the next couple days.  Is drop-box ok? I'll be able to paste a link to it in my signature if it is.

Drop-box is okay.

Sadly, I can't qualify for Strike down by level 6 (when I get a feat) unless I use a different class as a base so I can make Just Blade my fast track, and I don't want to do that as the class allows me to choose which stats are my primary abilities and thus allowing me to synergize the Smiting track without taking the Multiclass Flexibility feat. Strike Down's prerequisites call for Mystic Focus, which I get at third circle, and thus not until 7th level. I'll be able to take Striike Down next level, which is the plan.

I'll decide based on who I end up teamed with, based on both mechanics and who would have good RP dynamics. As for Victoria and Naur, unless I somehow end up on two teams, I kinda figured the other one would maybe make a brief appearance here or there as mostly an NPC (I'd appreciate getting to play her within whatever parameters you set for it, but I understand if that's a no). Well maybe not Naur if Victoria is the one I'm playing, what with naur being the younger one and all, but you get where I'm going. I sort of kind of figured Zack's father might make a cameo or somesuch as well, seeing as Zack might bring his team to his dad's bar for a drink at some point.

No problem. I expected as much. Undead chassis just doesn't give a lot of skills, but I've got Worry Beads and History trained (for What Someone Else Knew), so I should be fine in the skills department.

If you mean the character summary, I just put this:

Character Name
Race Class (Fast Track/Medium Track/Slow Track/FBI Track)
Trained Skills: List!
Notable Feats: whatever "notable" means to you (personality, combat style, noncombat abilities, etc.)
Combat Style: what you do when the weapons come out and the spells start flying

A brief narrative/description of the character.

in a spoiler box. ([ spoiler ] [ /spoiler ], or the "Sp" button near the right of the icon bar in the composition window)

If you mean something else, you'll have to be more specific.  :P


EDIT FOR ANOTHER TOPIC:

Grey, does your invitation to "shape the world via backstory" extend to in-game magi/technobabble? Since my character's basically an engineer, I can imagine there being roleplaying opportunities for technical discussions, but I'm not even a real-life engineer, much less a magitech engineer. I'm fine with just saying, "I spout some technobabble to the effect that...," but it could also be fun to try to make up something that at least sounds coherent.

Fars Lory: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2mnsd51d3iijzqn/Fars%20Lory.pdf
Also posted in my signature.

Spoiler
Character Name: Fars Lory
Fast Track: Fire Elemental
Medium Track: Utter Brute (Race)
Slow Track: Battle's Tempering (Ranger)
FBI Track: Sentient Construct
Trained Skills: Athletics, Vigor, Engineering, Perception
Notable Feats: Weaponized, Battle-forged, Scattering Wind, Open Lesser Binding
Combat Style: Move if needed, otherwise two flame kisses spread around (try to get people burning), and follow up with two attacks with ranged or melee (preferably melee).

A brief narrative/description of the character. Fars Lory, a human in body but a giant in life, he is always on the search for his life's real purpose and he often takes very unusual and potentially hazardous paths that nearly always lead him to believe there must be something else.
He is generally carefree and has no problems to speak of, he is always interested in other people but doesn't usually keep a conversation going for very long; his mind often likes to wander.



Long Version (already posted)
Spoiler
Fars Lory
Fars is an orphan. (Bastard son of a fire giant, but that is unbeknownst even to himself) His origins are unknown, but his deep red hair is very unusual for a human. He has always displayed unusual levels of strength and an infatuation with fire- but what kid didn't like playing with fire? He played outdoors every chance he could and on very bright sunny days he would often sneak out.
Fars ran away from the orphanage at fifteen to see the world and to find purpose. A year later he began working with a criminal organization, mostly because it was the only paying thing that didn't care about how educated you were. He did well, and in the first years he achieved unusually high ranks for someone still so new.
After 14 months they offered a proposition to him. He would run a special sect of the organization, but first be would be required to undergo a very intricate cyber-wear procedure. Fars accepted without hesitation and the procedure was accomplished without any problems. So for the rest of that year he conducted special operations with a group cyber-equipped individuals.
Throughout that year he had the itch to go someplace new and be somebody different and to really discover what all this meant to him. So he left without any warning and his entire sect followed him. He didn't mind, they were all brothers and sisters to him and he wasn't about to tell somebody else they couldn't do what they wanted. So they started off having some fun and through time began taking mercenary jobs.
One day, however, a special job came to him. An offer to join Legend Academy with the award being true mastery of his talents and abilities. Like a falcon to its prey, he took off right then and there; leaving the letter to float to the ground.

Fars is confident and a free spirit. Not really much for charisma, some people just have a knack for following him and he just doesn't care, however he certainly doesn't mind the company. His own self pride and ambition is what really drives him and he hopes to discover what his true purpose in life is here at Legend Academy.[/

Morwynn Elendal
Halfling Ranger (Reign of Arrows/Acrobatic Adept/Combat Alchemist/Tactician Spellcasting)
Trained Skills: Acrobatica, Arcana, Larceny, Vigor, Engineering, Perception.
Notable Feats: The Bigger They Are, Rune Magic, Sniper.
Combat Style: Morwynn has a focus on ranged damage and mobility as far as direct combat, but has spellcasting and brews available to add various options and control the battlefield.
Background and Personality
Spoiler
Morwynn is a halfling who grew up in the world of Eberron. When she came of age, she began training as an artificer, crafting items, casting magic, working with alchemy and such. After a brief exchange program with a traveling artificer, she learned more of the dangers of the world, and decided that her mostly noncombative speelcasting and alchemy may not be enough to see her through dangerous situations. She began to develop a set of small repeating hand crossbows for her personal use, and trained in their combat use often, in addition to her artifice. She eventually heard of, and subsequently applied to, Legend, where she hopes to expand her horizons and see what she never would have before, in addition to learning more about her chosen profession. She has already begun to do so, taking advantage of the technology offered to improve on her existing weapon design.
Morwynn is a curious individual, always striving to find and experience more, to know what's around the next bend. She is outgoing and lively, but focuses on her work and projects, school or personal, with a fervor few see and fewer exhibit.

Linna Cero
Lich Sage (Necromancer/Just Blade/Lich)
Trained Skills Vigor, Arcana, Medicine, Nature, Perception
Notable Feats Dartmuth Secret, The Sun Grows Dim, Telekinetic Adept, By Will Sustained
Combat Style Staying within Close range and wailing on targets with SLAs channeled through Grim Heritor attacks. Even if enemies close to melee, Linna can quickly swap over and has solid immunities, damage reduction, and temporary hitpoints to keep herself going.

A sweet girl from the Grimm Forest, Linna's life would likely had been quiet and uneventful had she not been forced to take shelter in an abandoned cottage during a terrible storm.  Trying to start a fire, she found long black wooden needle she thought might work as kindling... that immediately sprouted thorns when she touched it, biting into her tender fingers. Trying to throw the needle away was fruitless. as the thorns dug into her fingers and seemed to drink up her freely flowing blood.  Then all of a sudden the needle twisted in her grip, and burrowed into her hand, vanishing.  There was searing pain, then darkness.

When she woke, the roof of the cottage was gone.  Everything was soaked -- except for Linna, who was bone dry.  And changed.  The breath of life had left her, turning her once-rosy skin icy blue.  Strange stitching ran all over her body. And the needle -- she could feel it in her.  She could feel the threads extending out to the stitching on her skin.  She knew she couldn't go back to her village.  She was one of the dark things in the forest now.

She's still a sweet girl though.  Just a sweet girl filled with sinister eldritch power.

My character isn't a cyborg. He just has a few gizmos in his flesh. Though, I guess you could argue that that makes him a cyborg. His actual race (in my book) is half-fire giant.

Sheet: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B81cxZbXH1xfa1M4dXV1eEljVzA/edit?usp=sharing

Spoiler
Kalba Ruztaf
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Height: 6'8"
Weight: 230lbs
Gnoll Shaman: Wildborn/Bastion/Judgement/Shaman Spellcasting
Trained Skills: Acrobatics, Athletics, Larceny, Nature, Perception
Notable Feats: Breakneck Pace, Glyphweave Adept, Blacksmith, Optimistic Viscera
Combat Style: Uses the power of the spirits to cast support spells and relay his powers to his allies. Also keen on ripping up his enemies up, whether it's with a spell or with his own claws. Prefers using his claws for dealing damage, however.
Appearance: Dark grey fur, with red patches around the face and green eyes.

Backstory: Kalba belonged to your typical tribe of gnolls: bloodthirsty, merciless, worshipers of Yeenoghu. However, Kalba differed from most of his tribe in that he was actually born with an inability to stomach meat. This quickly lead to him being an outcast, as the eating of human flesh after a successful raid on one of their towns was considered as a form of praise to the Demon Lord (as well as it being tasty). Constantly being left out of the tribe's rituals and gatherings, he took to wandering the fields most of the time, when he encountered a lone human boy in the forest one day. Rather than run, however, the boy took a liking to Kalba, and they soon grew to see each other as brothers as they sought each other's company more and more. However, word of this bond reached the ears of the tribe chieftain. The chieftain ordered his best men to capture the boy, and he restrained Kalba while personally ripping the boy to shreds in front of him.  It was then that Kalba reached his breaking point, broke out of his restraints, and tore into the chieftain. He would go on to slay many of the tribes warriors before escaping with the boy's body. Alone, scared, and severely injured from all the fighting that he had done, Kalba began to pray. He didn't know what we was praying to, but he knew he needed help, and his prayers were answered by the spirits. They opened his eyes to a whole new world and granted him new powers, enough to help him evade certain death from the hands of the pursuing tribe. He eventually lost them, and the spirits lead him on a long journey to Sigil High, where he was able to impress some headmasters enough that he gained entry into their school.

Personality: Despite his past, Kalba is an unusually laid back guy, with an amazing amount of faith in the spirits. It's either that, or the herbs that he's always carrying around with him. Regardless, Kalba takes his life one day at a time, and tends not to worry about things like death staring him in the face or studying for tests. He tends to be quiet, but he does have a great laugh, and a loose sense of humor.

Was going to try and be hipster, but nah. Link above has the most recent sheet update.

My character is pretty much a front liner.  Fars will excel in slowing people down and gaining hit points while targeting from afar and hitting up close simultaneously. Except other fire creatures. I might be in a pickle against other creatures that resist fire- but that don't mean I can't melee and fire is good for me.

Well, Fars has two classes in Racial Studies, one for Progressive Magic, and battle's tempering track isn't on there yet but I can see it falling inside Survival Techniques. Not sure how all this will relate in game but I'm curious.

There are a couple of outstanding issues*, but I think this is otherwise ready to go:

Character sheet (https://www.dropbox.com/s/dxatpn8k2fws4p9/Roland.pdf)

Summary & Short Bio
Roland Beneforte
Human Sage (Arcane Secrets / Just Blade / Vigilante)
Trained Skills: Acrobatics, Arcana, Athletics, Engineering, Perception, Vigor
Notable Feats: Blacksmith, Safekeeper Adept
Combat Style: Melee attacks, mobility, some control/debuffing via Arcane Secrets

Roland is the latest in a moderately famous family of inventors. While he enjoys magical engineering, he dreams of using his skills in a more direct fashion: namely, hunting monsters and sealing Breaches. His technical skills are well developed (he designed and built most of his equipment himself), but he has relatively little experience with real combat. Somewhat shy and reserved by nature, he has come to Legend Academy to prove to his family--and himself--that he has what it takes to fight the Good Fight.

Description
Roland’s appearance is unremarkable: short sandy-brown hair, blue-gray eyes framed by wire-rimmed spectacles, and a lightly tanned complexion combine to form a whole that is neither handsome nor ugly, but simply ordinary. He stands a few inches shy of six feet tall and carries himself with quiet confidence.

In temperament, Roland is generally calm, reserved, and analytical. He likes to be prepared and prefers to think before speaking or acting. He is polite and usually friendly, if quiet and a bit shy. The main exception is when it comes to magical engineering: sometimes he gets carried away discussing the intricacies of materials science, arcanophysiology, and extradimensional manifolds.

Extended Bio
For generations, the Beneforte family has been at the cutting edge of magical technology in the small world of Rashen. Neither the richest nor the most prolific group of Rashenian inventors, the Benefortes nevertheless distinguish themselves by their creativity, their reliability, and their exacting standards of excellence. Discriminating collectors go to the Babbages and the Morgensterns to acquire their vanity pieces and display objects (at exorbitant prices, of course); many of the Babbages and Morgensterns go the Benefortes for their personal devices.

Roland Beneforte is the grandson of the family’s current patriarch, Reginald Beneforte. Roland is a gifted engineer, with particular talents for smithcraft and dimensional mechanics. His theories about the principles of extradimensional storage have impressed Rashenian scholars and begun to pay dividends in the family’s technology. Reginald sees a bright future for his grandson, and he was looking forward to the day when he would turn over the leadership of the family to Roland.

But then Roland learned about the Breaches. He was fascinated by the phenomena--fascinated and disturbed. He soon learned about the role of Legends in containing the threat of the Breaches, and he decided he had a new goal in life. He began supplementing his studies with martial training, and within two years he was skilled enough to be accepted to the Legend Academy.

Roland’s father (the family’s chief financial manager) and mother (a laboratory overseer) were content with Roland’s decision. But Reginald is an old-fashioned quasi-aristocrat, and he firmly believes that craftsmen should not be adventurers and adventurers should not be craftsmen. (“You can’t put your whole heart and soul into your work if you’re risking life and limb gallivanting around the planes!”) He tried to persuade Roland to remain on Rashen and continue his career as an inventor, but Roland was adamant in his desire to become a Legend.

After months of arguments, Reginald agreed to allow Roland to attend for one year as a trial period. Roland has no intention of quitting after that year, but he hopes to perform well enough to win his grandfather’s support.


Formerly Outstanding Issues
(1) If rumors of the use of the point-buy chassis prove true, I might rearrange the order of my tracks.
(2) Metool and I have been discussing his use of Heroica, with Roland as his character's partner. For now, my sheet reflects only the half-level damage bonus from that.

EDIT FOR ANOTHER TOPIC:

Grey, does your invitation to "shape the world via backstory" extend to in-game magi/technobabble? Since my character's basically an engineer, I can imagine there being roleplaying opportunities for technical discussions, but I'm not even a real-life engineer, much less a magitech engineer. I'm fine with just saying, "I spout some technobabble to the effect that...," but it could also be fun to try to make up something that at least sounds coherent.

You can work your Technobabble fu, if you want to.

As far as that document goes, I don't agree with Just Blade being in Sciences. Seems more... I dunno, progressive magic? Also, Smiting would probably show up in Martial Achievement rather than Divine Thought, unless someone has a better suggestion.

Sure, I can change Just blade to magic, if that's what you prefer. Smiting swapped.

There are a couple of outstanding issues*, but I think this is otherwise ready to go:

(2) Metool and I have been discussing his use of Heroica, with Roland as his character's partner. For now, my sheet reflects only the half-level damage bonus from that.

1. Rumours are true.
2. Okay, though I think Metool is considering another character.

So by my count there have been 10 sheets provided and 17ish applicants all together(turalisj and Zejety checked in, but then went silent)

The following groupings have started to emerge:

Exegroup: Lord Gareth / Exelixi / Exelixi's Partner / Mura

Metoolgroup: St. Salieri, VennDygrem, Metool and maybe Valixes, SpaceChomp

The rest of you are still unsorted.

Metool, Mura, Valixes, Spacechomp, Exelixi, Exelixi’s Partner and Lord Gareth still don't have sheets, I'll be looking into the provided sheets tonight to see if there are any errors, but so far it looks good. If you guys want to use a piece of homebrew or want to implement house rules, just ask and I'll look into it.

I would love to team with Sakuuya and Rokku. I might even pull Ezekiel out of the depths of obscurity for Team Undead, or pull out one of my 324364764563452321445467565463 other undead character options and stat up for this. Actually, I'll probably do the latter, or run with Nate.

Well, it looks like Kalba will be mostly hanging around the Department of Divine Thought, with one course in Racial Studies, unless if Wildborn isn't an acceptable track (which would mean I would have to redo my character background. I was never told it wasn't acceptable, after all.)

As for groups, it would be nice if we had all of the profiles gathered up in one area so we don't have to go hunting for them all over the place. Would make the process easier. In any case. In any case, Kabla would benefit from the Tactician Spells, so I would like him to be in a group that has one of those.

The fact that nobody has a G name is a bummer, then.  :(

Also, Kalba and Morwynn may want to team up, 'cause Morwynn is the only non-inanimate-object character with Tactician spells, and I hear that Kalba wants ALL THE BUFFS.

Sounds like a plan to me! Kalba can peel for Morwynn once he starts getting his movement reduction circles as well, which can give him time to prep. I think it could work quite nicely.

The Maginomicon (https://www.dropbox.com/s/2sdai0pf8ol4osw/Maginomicon.pdf), believing herself to be destined for arcane greatness.

"On many occasions, I have brilliant ideas - but the student enclosed within this parcel is one of my finest. Penning a book takes time and effort. Research, years of study, evaluations of sources, and countless other troubles that would put a dent in any Legend's already booked (He-he) schedule. So it is with my utmost sincerity that I bid you to welcome the enclosed tome to your University Library as both an extraordinary self-expanded student resource and knowledge-hungry understudy. Instilled with an instinct to learn every shred there is to know about magic, it is my aim that The Maginomicon will one day become a compiled textual analysis of the arcane phenomenon as a whole."

Well, in his original incarnation, Nate had a run in with a vampire that ended up with him getting yet another template (D&D 3.5) so I figure I could grab the best of both worlds and port that over. I'd need to do some rebuilding, but it's manageable ;)

I'm almost finished with my character sheet, but here's a preliminary profile:

Spoiler
Name: Miriam Thorne (work in progress)
Age: 19
Lich Sage (Lich/Just Blade/Cold Elementalist)
Feats: Arcantric Accuracy, Arcane Magister, Damage Specialization, Lich's Wrath, Summon Mote
Party Role: Single-target striker
Personality: Standoffish and vain, but craves approval. Wants to become mortal again.

Her Mote and Ancient Reliquary represent a pet crow named Aleister, with which she shares a mental bond. Her Heritor is a polearm with a Bec de Corbin (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/34/Bec_de_Corbin.jpg/81px-Bec_de_Corbin.jpg) at one end and a scythe blade on the other. Miriam looks remarkably intact for a lich, as she uses ice magic to preserve her decaying body.

Alrighty, got a character sheet all made up for Tragot Meltzen.

Character Sheet (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B45tAhy4YtvBZGQ4dmw4bVNWN28/preview)

Summary & Short Bio
Tragot Meltzen
Dwarf Barbarian (Knight / Path of Destruction / Path of the Ancestors)
Trained Skills: Athletics, Vigor, Engineering, History, Perception
Notable Feats: Blacksmith, Livers Need Not Apply
Combat Style: Drunken Melee Beatstick

Tragot is a joyful fellow with a somewhat cruel sense of humor.  He often finds himself laughing at others misfortune unless he catches himself beforehand (which he often doesn't).  When he fights, and he does fight, he does so with an equally mean bent to it and frequently aims his trusty hammer at peoples shins and other such joints in the hopes they'll fall over themselves and make fools of themselves.

Description
At a middling height (for dwarves) of just over four feet, Tragot's salty black beard is kept neat and tidy as it reaches just past his neck.  His hair, the same color, is kept in several braids going down to just above his shoulders where the pauldrons of his dull grey plated armor meet it.  His pale skin has the beginnings of wrinkles from the lines of laughter.    Strapped to his arm is a stout wooden shield, and looped into opposing sides of his belt is a waterskin (filled with beer) and a well-worn warhammer.

Extended Bio
He received the invitation one day in the aftermath of an extremely active bar fight, which had landed him in jail for the following day.  Thinking it a well done joke, he signed it after borrowing a piece of coal from the cell guard (who was the one who had managed to give Tragot a well-received black eye).  Poor Tragot did not expect to get whisked away to this odd extra-planar academy the following week, nor that he was supposed to be so very important to his home, but he's sticking it out for now.  It's sure to be good for a few laughs, and who knows what he'll learn while he's here.

I've decided to add Swashbuckler back in, against my better judgment.

So it turns out that currently, a Sophisticated Unarmed Strike interacts with Brutal Kick in a horrifying manner. Thank you, Greybender, for letting me treat Brutal Kick as an Unarmed Strike for the purposes of bonuses and enchantments.


Edit: Rage conflicted with the rest of the build, so I swapped it for Ancestors. This locked me out of [REDACTED], but that's quite alright, as I've got a bit more oomph in this one. It can be examined here. (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FIWQZu6Ne-l_wrew-8oVGBNDjGIRC2FbDXcXYAr-xK4/edit)

It took me awhile to realize Fars was the F name. I was under the impression that Qazarar was looking for a group.
Then I looked at the list Sakuuya compiled and I'm noticing a couple groups with only 2-3 members.

Two unnamed groups have 2x players and even metool's freshmen group has only 3x players.
The way things are going we will have one remaining player aside from Valixes- who has decided to help everyone. Are we still missing some people? Or should we somehow recruit a couple extra bodies?

It took me awhile to realize Fars was the F name. I was under the impression that Qazarar was looking for a group.
Then I looked at the list Sakuuya compiled and I'm noticing a couple groups with only 2-3 members.

Two unnamed groups have 2x players and even metool's freshmen group has only 3x players.
The way things are going we will have one remaining player aside from Valixes- who has decided to help everyone. Are we still missing some people? Or should we somehow recruit a couple extra bodies?

We reserve the team name OPAL. (Name), Phoebe, Amnis, (Name). My character sheet and bio should eb up today. If it isn't, find me on the chat and give me a swift kick in the rear.

Grey, you've already said this should be fine in chat, but For Posterity, I'd like to make formally sure it's okay to use my point-buy chassis system, located here: http://www.ruleofcool.com/smf/index.php/topic,1185.0.html

Amnis (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9wiXGvnUJmATmRZYmEzTXNRV0k/edit?usp=sharing)

Amnis
Name: Amnis
Team: OPAL
Race: The name of Amnis' race is difficult to spell phonetically; she usually refers to them as the Rain People in more conventional tongues.
Gender: Amnis is nominally female, though the question is complicated. She prefers feminine forms when being humanoid.
Age: Unknown; Amnis is young, but not conventionally mortal, and her people don't really keep track of age as a result.
Nationality: The Bright World, a small demiplane in the Ethereal Plane.
Appearance: Amnis has a translucent, gel-like appearence that is almost completely under her control - she can be a puddle, a tool, humanoid, whatever. While she can't add or remove mass from her form, she can shape it to look like whatever she wants, crudely alter her color (she is normally light green or dark blue) and become more opaque or more transparent. Often Amnis' form is an indicator of her mood, growing more loose and liquid when she's relaxed or sleeping, and more rigid and twitchy when she's upset or nervous. Amnis does often favor a humanoid form where she's created opaque 'clothing' over her translucent body - she is lithe and curvaceous in this form, as only a being who doesn't have to deal with normal biology can be. However, Amnis often alters her shape to 'match' the species of someone she's talking to, which she feels is polite.
Brief biography: Amnis had a pretty normal life for her people; she grew up as the daughter of a prominent warrior in her tribe and was raised to defend her friends and family from those that would threaten them. She developed a deep respect for duty, honor, and the idea that you should do the right thing and for the right reasons, but she never shook a sense of wanderlust that blossomed in her as a child and grew into full flower as she became a young woman. When the portal was opened to Sigil, Amnis was eager to learn about new cultures, and one of the first things she learned is that other cultures can be violent too. It didn't hurt her faith in universal goodness, and the efficient way in which she dealt with the muggers who went after her earned her the invitation to Legend Academy. Eager to go forth and do good, Amnis hopes to make friends.
Personal information: Amnis is a country girl in the Biggest City Ever and it shows. She's full of wonder at absolutely everything and positively giddy to meet new people, learn new things, and come back home to tell everyone all about it. She takes her responsibility to learn very seriously and feels proud and pleased that she's been chosen to defend her home from Breaches. Of course, she also has no idea of how disturbing her feeding habits are to other sapients...
Equipment: Amnis doesn't have many personal possessions; her people use neither tools nor weapons. However, she does carry two tokens from home within her body - a glimmering shard of enchanted glass that rests where a human's heart would be when she wears a humanoid form. Additionally, thin 'veins' of quicksilver course through her - the equivalent of tattoos in her culture.
Favoured method of kicking ass: As is the way of her culture, Amnis fights by feeding upon her enemies, using her protean form to beat them into submission while she rips the life force from their bodies.
General reputation: Amnis is, for the most part, a curiosity - a novelty whose people are still relatively unknown through the Planes. Aside from that generalized reputation, however, she doesn't have much of a name around campus.
Other: Whatever you feel the need to include. Like theme songs. I like theme songs.

Post by: munchlord on September 29, 2013, 05:54:46 AM
Because I was boredom, I filled out this. Might offer some insights into Nate's persona. Spoilored because it's long as hell.

Nate HellQ
    Introduction

    Who are you? Sum yourself up in one sentence.
Someone who's trying to be a nice guy against the odds.

    Do you have any nicknames, street names, titles, or nom de plume?
Nate

    What is your full birth name?
Nathan Reaver

    Where do you live?
A bit here and there. Legend Academy soon.

    How old are you?
I'm.... not sure. I never really celebrated my birthday.

    Physical Traits
Wings growing out of my back and elongated fangs set me apart from most humanoids.

    What is your gender?
Male

    How would you describe your heritage?
Pretty damn irrelevant. My parents disowned me and I disowned them.

    How tall are you?
149 cm

    What is your body type?
Scrawny

    Do you have any particular weaknesses, such as allergies or physical disabilities?
Eh... I get sunburns easily? Also, considering by blood I'm a runt, really.

    How do you carry yourself? Are you graceful, or heavy on your feet? Can you be stealthy, do you walk with confidence?
I don't really know. I'm fairly agile I suppose, but stealth never really were my strong suit. I guess I am rather confident, what with having survived thus far and everything.

    Describe your skin, eye, and hair color.
My skin is pale, my hair is white and my eyes are red.

    How do you wear your hair, if applicable? Do you have facial hair?
Shoulder length, no facial hair to speak of.

    Do you consider yourself attractive? Do others?
I haven't really considered that, and I haven't really had anyone to ask.

    Do you have any scars, tattoos, piercings, or birthmarks?
I do yeah, in devil form. I've been locked out of that one since being Turned though.

    Do you resemble anyone famous?
Not that I know of

    Do you have a dominant hand?
No

    What kind of clothing do you wear?
Changes depending on what I'm doing. I usually go for something comfortable though

    Do you wear makeup?
No

    What is your vocal range? Is your voice distinctive in some way?
I' haven't really tested it much. I suspect it can go rather deep. Otherwise, not really.

    Do you have any distinctive habits, nervous tics, or mannerisms? Where did they come from, and what causes them? Do other people notice and remark on these habits? Do they annoy you or other people?
I err... tend to accidentally raise the room temperature when I get worked up.


    History

    Where do you come from?
Hell. And yes, my childhood sucked.

    Have you made any major moves, or do you live in your hometown?
Well, getting exiled counts as a major move I'd argue.

    Do you feel loyal to your country of citizenship? Do you consider yourself patriotic? How do you feel about the government of your country?
Loyal to what exactly? Hell? Fuck no, never. That place sucks big time.

    How do you feel about the place you come from?
See above.

    Where is your home town? What was/is it like?
Nth layer of hell. Sucked as much as everywhere else on that plane.

    Growing up, were most of the people you knew similar to you, or were you somehow a minority? How did that affect you?
Eh well everyone was a devil. I was the only one there with anything resembling compassion. Which got me thrown out, thankfully.

    Is there something you've always been really good at or really bad at? How has that affected your life?
I've allways been an atrocious liar, to the point where I really don't bother anymore. It made my life.... less than easy.

    Were there any traumatic experiences in your early years (death of a family member, abandonment, orphaned at an early age)?
Too many to count.

    Briefly describe a defining moment in your childhood and how it influenced your life.
eh I don't know. Realizing that I was never going to make my parents proud by being a 'proper' devil so I might as well quit trying.

    What stupid things did you do when you were younger?
Try to run away from home. Then again, getting exiled was the best thing to happen to me ever, so maybe it wasn't that stupid after all.

    Where did you go to school? How much school did you have, and did you enjoy it?
Homeschooled, far too much of it and it sucked.

    Do you have any mementos of your childhood? What are they, and why did you keep them? If you have none, why not?
No, I generally don't want to remember it.

    Do you have any deep, dark secrets in the past that may come back to haunt you?
Eh... not really.

    Do you represent yourself as being different from who you really are? Why?
Well I don't go waving around a sign saying 'I'm an exiled devil' but I don't really make a secret of it either.

    Do you have any sort of criminal record? If so, is it public knowledge?
I was exiled from hell. For the crimes of compassion and mercy. That's about it I think.

    Family


    What are your biological parents' names?
Answer Withheld

    Were you raised by them? If not, please explain and describe who raised you.
Yes.

    What was their standing in the community? What did/do they do for a living?
Well off. Assassination and politics.

    Where are your parents now?
In Hell probably.

    Did your family stay in one area or move around a lot?
In one place. Though my mother was out killing a lot.

    How did you get along with your parents?
I failed to be a mean shit. I got punished. Rinse repeat.

    How do your parents view you now, or how would they?
They disowned me. That really speaks for itself.

    Do you have any siblings? If so how many and what are their names? Describe your relationship with them.
I did. Names withheld as I don't want to be associated with them. That speaks for itself regarding my relationship with them

    What was your birth order in the family?
Youngest.

    Do you love or hate one member of the family in particular?
No I despise them equally.

    Is any member of the family special to you in any way (perhaps, as a confidant, mentor, or arch-rival)?
no

    Are there any black (or white) sheep in the family (including you)? If so, please explain.
I would be the White Sheep so to speak. Reasons are obvious.

    Do you have a notorious or celebrated ancestor? If so, please explain, including how it has affected your life.
I never paid much attention to the family tree, but there's probably a notorious devil in there somewhere.

    Do you have a partner and children currently? If so, please describe them.
No.

    If you do not have a partner or children, do you want them someday? How firm are you in your opinion on this, and what might change your mind?
A partner, I could see. But I'd probably make a lousy parent though, so I'll stay away from affspring. Hell, I should probably not get my hopes up on the former either.

    What type of person would be your ideal mate?
Uhm.... no idea really.


    Relationships

    Do you have any close friends? If so, please describe them, and how you came to be close to them.
Not really. Hell isn't a place to friendships of any kind and anywhere else people are usually not too keen to befriend someone of my kind.

    Do you have a best friend? If so, how did they become your best friend? How close are you to your best friend?
No

    If you were to go missing, who would worry about you?
Eh.... probably noone.

    Have you lost any loves? If so, how did it happen, and what did you do?
I'd need to have one to loose one.

    Do you have any bitter enemies? If so, please describe them and their history with you.
Not really. Not that I know of at least.

    If you have enemies, how do you think they might attempt to work against you in the future?


    What is the worst thing someone has done to you?
Answer withheld

    Where do your loyalties lie? In what order?
My morality.
The end.

    Who or what do you trust the most? Why?
Myself. Haven't really met anyone else trustworthy

    Who or what do you despise? Why?
Excessive selfishness and egoism. Remorselessness. Generally dickish behavior really.

    What qualities do you admire most in other people? Are these qualities you possess?
Determination and good morals. I'd like to think so.

    What qualities do you hate most in other people? Do you have any of those qualities yourself?
See the answer to the question two above this one. I certainly hope not.

    Do you have a secret identity? If so, who knows it? Do you hide it from people who are close to you? Why?
No

    Do you work well on teams and in groups? Are you a leader or a follower?
eh no idea. Never really done any teamwork before

    Are you a member of any church, fraternal organization, club, committee, political party, or other group? How much time do you spend on that?
No


    Personality & Beliefs

    Who are your heroes?
I don't have any

    Did you ever become disillusioned with former heroes or idols? If so, why and what were the circumstances?
No, neer had any

    What are your short term goals (what would you like to be doing within a year)?
Find a friend or two maybe?

    What are your long term goals (what would you like to be doing twenty years from now)?
Have a home.

    What is your greatest fear? Why? What do you do when something triggers this fear?
I'm..... I don't know. Fears aren't really my thing. I guess I ran out of unfaced fears at some point.

    Is there anything you would give you life for?
A friend, if I had one.

    How do you feel about money and material wealth? Do you desire it or disdain it? Are you miserly with what you have, or do you like to share? Is it a mark of success, or a means to an end?
I don't really feel either way.

    How do you generally treat others?
As well as I can.

    Are you a trusting person? Has your trust ever been abused?
No I'm not. Yes it has, which would be why.

    Are you introverted (shy and withdrawn) or extroverted (outgoing)? Do you have a lot of self-confidence?
Outgoing. And I try to be confident yeah. I do have some pride in having survived thus far.

    How do you act around attractive, available members of your preferred sex?
I'm just myself around anyone really.

    What are your most annoying habits?
No idea

    Do you feel contempt for any general category of people? Who are they, and why?
Politicians and devils. By far the most are trecherous backstabbing snakes. There are exceptions though, but I prefer to be on the safe side.

    What is your favorite food? Do you prefer any particular type of food? Do you take the time to enjoy your food, or do you eat as fast as you can?
Roasts and bacon. Especially combined.

    What is your favorite drink (alcoholic or otherwise)?
Blood by now, what with being a vampire and all. Beer is a close second though.

    What is your favorite treat (dessert)?
Sweet stuff. The sweeter the better, really.

    Are there any specific foodstuffs that you find disgusting or refuse to eat?
Not really no.

    What is your favorite color? Are there any colors you dislike?
I don't really have one.

    What sort of music do you like? Is there any that you hate?
Classic and Metal

    If you have a favorite scent, what is it?
Nope

    Do you have a favorite animal?
Nope. The stereotypical thing would be to say bat, wouldn't it?

    What is your most treasured possession? Why?
Nope

    Do you enjoy "roughing it", or do you prefer your creature comforts?
I don't really favor one or the other.

    Is there a job or a task you would absolutely refuse to do?
Torturing innocents, for whatever reason. Especially children.

    Do you consider yourself a spiritual person? If so, how do your beliefs affect your life? How important is it to you?
No. I pointedly don't pray to anything.

    Was your faith influenced or molded by anyone special?
Not really.

    Could you kill? Have you killed?
Yes

    What circumstances led to you forming that conviction, or taking that action?
It was that or die.

    Are there circumstances under which you believe it is permissible to kill? What are they?
Yes, but it's quite a bit too bound up in circumstances to sum up.

    How would you react to watching someone kill another person? Would your reaction be different if the killer was a friend or an enemy of yours?
Depends on the situation.

    How would you react if something important was stolen from you?
Get angry as hell.

    How would you react to public humiliation?
I wouldn't really give a damn. Been there done that to death.

    How would you react if a good friend or relative were purposely or accidentally killed? Has it happened to you?
Probably badly. No idea though, since I don't have friends in the first place.

    What do you consider to be the worst crime someone could commit and why?
Child Abuse. For obvious reasons.

    If your life were to end in 24 hours, what five things would you do in those remaining hours?
Save five lives, or die trying.

I.... don't really have a normal day, goes with the always travelling thing.

    Do you have any hobbies, or interests outside of work? What are they, and where did you pick them up?
I like sculpting, always have. Gave me a refuge from my life, sort of.

    What do you do for fun?
I rarely have time for fun.

    What do you wear to bed most nights?
A light shirt and pants

    Do you wear any special jewelry? What is it, and what does it look like?
I wear a pair of pitsteel bracers, if they count. Plain, dull grey metal around my wrists.

    Do you have a special place where you keep your valuables?
That would require having any real valuables

    What's your preferred means of local travel? How about long distance?
I usually walk, with a bit of discorporated flight here and there for shortcuts.


    Miscellaneous

    Have you ever made a will, or tried to make arrangements for your death? What provisions did you make?
Nope

    If your features were to be destroyed beyond recognition, is there any other way of identifying your body?
Not really, unless my body reverts to devil form.

    What would you like to be remembered for after your death?
being a good person, despite my race and upbringing.

    Do you believe you pose a threat to the public? Why or why not?
Not really. I mean my anger can be quite destructive, but I usually keep it under control or directed at targets who deserve a can of whup ass

    What do you perceive as your greatest strength?
My determination

    What do you perceive as your greatest weakness?
The reaction people usually have to someone of my kind.

Spoiler
Name: Liliana "Lily" Corinth
Team: OPAL
Race: Elf. (Mechanical: Human.)
Gender: Female.
Age: 40; this is young in Elf-Years.
Appearance: A middling-height humanoid who looks like she used to be an Elf. The pointed ears and slender features are intact; however, her hair is white, and her eyes look slightly bleached-out. Her most striking feature, however, is the metal left arm; from fingertip to shoulder, and apparently past that, if you look closely, the limb is made up of a dark, glossy metal that looks like someone polished the void in the night sky. Though obviously metal, it is structurally more organic than metallic, except where it is stylish not to be, e.g. the fingertips, which are slightly pointed. Whether this is the original state of the metal or it has been adjusted to its owner's preference is unknown. The same metal makes up a single vaguely wingish shape on her back; though it is clear this could never be used to fly by any stretch of the imagination, it can nevertheless spread out and allow Lily to levitate effortlessly.  Her normal hand bears three tattoos, depicting a sword, a shield, and a crown, which seem to move around and fade in and out of existence at will. She wears clothing of the modern style in Sigil, generally practical, with the left sleeve cut out if one would exist.
Home plane: A fairly obscure Material Plane no-one cares much about.
Brief biography: Lily was brought up as a mage-warrior, born from two members of that elite caste. She was keen to learn, and keen to fight the enemies of her kingdom, though at the time she thought warfare was a series of honourable duels and anyone her kingdom fought would fall into the category of Bad Guys anyway. Of course, one day, something went disastrously wrong, as these things do. She was out scouting the campsite of a local knot of tomb-raiders, and got ambushed in turn. Her upper body took the full force of a blast of acid, which instantly dissolved her left arm and a sizeable chunk of her torso. She collapsed in the middle of the camp, bleeding heavily and screaming in agony. The raiders naturally backed away and left her to die; after all, with that kind of wound, she would bleed out quickly.
Only, of course, she didn't. Otherwise, she wouldn't be here, would she?
Lily did not see much of what was happening, but she made out several figures riding gigantic boars, slaughtering the tomb-raiders left and right. Coming towards her in an inexorable tide. When she awoke, she found she could feel her lost arm perfectly. She'd heard of phantom limb syndrome, but being able to frantically light a match with the non-existent appendage is something different altogether. She was swiftly steadied by a human male, who lit up the room and indicated her arm. Her new arm.He gave her the good news, and the bad news, in that order. The good news was that she had  been saved and given a new arm (and sizeable chunk of torso) which would work perfectly, and in fact be much stronger and better than before. The bad news was that said prosthetic was made of an ancient, undoubtably evil and possibly sentient hunk of metal shorn from a beast made of the same stuff, which just happened to conveniently shape itself into an arm (and sizeable chunk of torso) and not bother asking anyone to attach it. Oh, and it would slowly consume all her life energy until she died, not of anything in particualr, just of an overdose of Death itself. The still-bad-but-slightly-better news, which was stammered at knife-point, was that she could use her connection with the metal to do new and interesting magics, of a decidedly soul-sucking variety, which would keep the metal from draining her for a time. Liliana was incredibly tempted to begin experimenting with this interesting new process on him, but he had been trying to save her, after all, so she sent him along with merely a slap and an acute case of having his worshop burnt to the ground.

As a major aberration, she was not allowed back into the order of her parents, or even back into Elven society at all. She wandered her plane, taking the approach she had heard of a few vampires doing, and sating her need to more-or-less eat living souls via monster-and-outlaw hunting. (The plane had long ago figured out that this was possible and didn't hold any truck with the whole inherent alignment thing. There was a long-standing tradition of vampire heroes who Did Good Deeds and Helped the People and saved quite a lot on their catering bills in the process.) This escalated somewhat quickly, and eventually she found herself exterminating a major cult of a particularly vile demon- and killing the demon itself. This elicited a glimmer of interest from Sigil's Legend Academy, which, in a very roundabout way, sent her an invitation promising or at least strongly insinuating that attending the Academy would take care of her little soul-eating problem. 

Equipment and Other Items: A necklace, hanging from which two small, squarish bones of an unidentified creature. One bone is carved with a rune of cunning; the other with a rune of strength. A yew wand. A small disc of black bronze with a belt-hook which expands into a shield.

She is usually seen with a can of Abyssal Cola in her hand, the Positive Energy in which slakes her angry prosthetic's need for life-essence. Finally, she has a full wardrobe of custom-tailored clothing, with the left arm cut out the tops and everything made of a silk produced by demonic spiders, which is resistant to constant background levels of negative energy.

Favoured method of kicking ass: Liliana has developed a fighting style blending magic, clever tactics, and raw, animal brutality. All the powers of the Phagesteel, as she calls it, are best conveyed up-close and extremely personal, with a mixture of mysterious life-sapping magic, the martial arts of her youth, and sheer malign force. However, she also goes into battle well-prepared with a stock of powerful rituals boosting her own abilities and her allies'.

Other: THEME SONG TIEM. Through Alchemy Bound Eternal by Decrepit Birth. Note: Do not listen to this if you are at work, around small children, or have neck problems.

Phoebe Sykes' leitmotif; Death is the Road to Awe by Clint Mansell. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihF_aXi-Huk) It's meant to capture her conflicting personality traits of outward timidity and coldness, and suppressed alienation or rage.

Hey Munchlord.  Thanks for providing that blank questionnaire.  While I don't think I want to bore anyone on the specifics of my character (also, my computer crashed when I was over halfway through with it), it was a lot of fun to fill out and allowed me to really get to know my character.  I recommend anyone else at least fill it out for yourself. If you're bored.

One thing I want to throw out, is my character's "given" name is Lory. Fars is a nickname that developed in the orphanage he grew up in and eventually he just tied into his real name. He also realized how feminine his name, Lory, sounds. But he's cool with it.

If anything is inconsistent between versions: Firstly, why didn't you mention the convenient copy you have and could give to me, and secondly, I don't rightly give a toss. Reconstructing things from memory only goes so far.

Edit: After some bug reporting, I've discovered that Necromancer C!: Chill Touch should be (L+1)d4 instead of Ld4. Anyone else with Necromancer may want to take advantage of this.

Unless there is some houserule at play here, getting multiple racial tracks is doable. You can even have 4 if you want, the only restriction is that you can't grab one with your normal multiclass, you can use shaman's path, guild initiation, or full buy in to get a second.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/je8nbm657u2tn01/character%20Legend%20Academy.pdf (weapon name should read: Opal Disc)

Spoiler
Name: Opal Moonranger.
Team:OPAL.
Race:Fey.
Gender:Female.
Age:53; this is moderately young in Fey years, corresponding to around twenty human years.
Appearance: A tall winged humanoid with skin of a greyish-green colour. Her wings are akin to a moth's in shape, burnt orange and with jagged edges. Her hair is straw-yellow, and her eyes a mid-tone orange. She lacks secondary sexual characteristics (as all Fey do). She favours clothes of a practical nature, with as many pockets as she can find or add to them.
Home plane:She hails from the Flower Court, a small plane with the only native sapient species being the highly xenophobic and elitist Fey. Most attempts from the outside world at communicating with this plane fail, resulting in its existence being little-known and its inhabitants even less.
Brief biography: Born into the very hierachal Fey society, and with the unslakeable need to learn everything she possibly could, she soon found herself frustrated by the insistence that anything that existed outside of their plane was inferior, degrading, and unworthy of her attention. Lacking the patience to engage in the levels of diplomacy and trickery common among her people, her outspoken responses soon enough earned her a reputation as a troublemaker and an undesirable. Not caring to attack her views outright, the Fey Court kept a tight rein on events, steering their course towards a confrontation with the Queen; reports given indicate that Opal behaved with 'the utmost disrespect for our fair Queen', and she was summarily banished from the plane.

Opal's glee at finally getting the opportunity to explore planes beyond the Flower Court was, naturally, tempered by apprehension as to how she'd manage to live; much though she despised most of what her plane stood for, it was still all she'd known. However, she soon found that her magic earned her a trade; since her plane and her people were unknown to most others, so was their magic, and few people were able to defend against it particularly effectively. (This also meant that she wasn't able to defend against other people well at first; however, spending the first few years learning lots of types of magic, mostly while directed at her with intent to harm, soon made her defensive strategies much more comprehensive.) Knowing that she had no-one that she could rely on, with her home plane forbidden to her, she also took a new name to keep her true name secret and safe: Opal Moonranger.

Security, for various people and organisations, was the job that best fitted her; as temporary contracts, she could continue wandering as many planes as she could, and her quickly-acquired knowledge of various forms of offensive magic, coupled with the Fey speciality of extremely effective wards, made her particularly well-qualified. Naturally, there were incidents every so often, but they were mostly solved by containment, or carefully-aimed minor attacks - except for one particular incident involving several Important People, quite a few people opposed to the Important People, and a sudden and surprising wall of fire. A little while after that, she heard in a rather roundabout way that Legend Academy might possibly be able to help her in her quest for knowledge, and that she might want to at the least visit there temporarily.

Equipment and other items: A titanium disc somewhat bigger than the palm of her hand, wrought with silver and set with four fire opals. A pouch containing four white opals. Two rings, set with black opals.

Favoured method of kicking ass: Opal's fighting style is most effective a little way away from her opponents; her magic ranges far and it's wise for her to be well out of the way of say, a wall of fire. Her talent for defensive magic is also very useful on the battlefield, and her development of different ways to amplify and aim that has proven well worth the time.

IC threads will be divided into groups with possible later crossovers, if the threads last long enough ;)

Woohoo, Gamestart ahoy!  ;D

So, as I mentioned near the start of the thread, I'm new to PBP gaming (apart from having read some threads on various boards). Is there anything like a "rulebook" with the standards and etiquette for PBP, whether in general or specific to this board or game--things like "post in-character speech in a different color" or "list your temporary modifiers in combat"--or should I just plan to figure it out as we go?

Post by: Castodas on October 11, 2013, 01:49:38 AM
In character stuff or, "IC," generally happens in its own thread, so just keep an eye out for that.

The rest is mainly just being courteous and giving everyone a chance to respond to the events that occur.
It will change a bit in combat scenarios. Either going off initiative order or however the GM chooses to do it. So combat will typically lock you into an order.

I suppose this PbP is a bit larger than usual, so grey may choose to do things in a more specific manner.

Generally:

*Don't use first person. It clashes with everything else. Third person limited is generally the point of view one goes with in roleplay; whether past or present tense depends, and that will either be decided by the GM or by people just settling into a rhythm.
*Don't godmod. That is to say, don't decide the reactions to an action your character makes.
*Check your in-character posts for spelling and grammar before you post them, or immediately after if you spot something you missed. Editing a post for anything other than spelling and grammar is generally in bad taste.
*Don't be a dick. This is a general life rule and not restricted to roleplaying. :P
*Keep IC and OOC separate. Your character getting what they want and you getting what you want are not one and the same. If somethign happens to your character, deal with it, and don't throw a tantrum. I don't expect this to happen, but it is an underlying part of roleplay etiquette.
*This last one is specific to this game, and for everyone who didn't know: I'm mostly blind, and have a hard enough time seeing text as it is, so I would be obliged if everyone would refrain from using blue or pink text and smalltext (if smalltext even works on here).

Something else I just remembered that might be good to be aware of is about the dice roller in this forum.

If you use the dice roller in a post then you will want to make absolutely certain that there is nothing in your post that you will want to change. The reason is because the dice roller will tell everyone that the roll has been messed with even if you did nothing to it.
This also compliments with what exelixi was saying about checking for grammer and spelling.  Which is the most likely reason that I would want to edit my posts.

Here is an example of what I mean:
(http://www.ruleofcool.com/smf/Themes/default/images/dice_warn.gif) This dice roll has been tampered with!
Rolled 1d20+3 : 12 + 3, total 15

I didn't touch the roller, I just came back to type this sentence.

Extremely relevant information for Unit: Vigilante/Racial Paragon/Sentient Construct/Heavy Weapons is INCREDIBLY underpowered due to very strong standard action conflict. In order for this character to not blow, you need to drop either Vigilante or Heavy Weapons and replace Heavy Metal with the option that doesn't nom nom nom your standard.
Title: Re: Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP Interest check
Post by: Unit001 on October 13, 2013, 02:22:43 PM
I appreciate your concern, but I never worried much about action economy.  Yeah, a lot of my stuff uses standard actions, but none of it was going to be used in the same round anyway.  1) I didn't get Vigilante for Brutal Kick, I got it got the armor and the mount.  I'm not worried about the action type of an ability I won't use very often. 2) Heavy Metal is a melee-range AOE that can knock enemies prone, and since I'm primarily a ranged attacker that has immense value, as it would help me get away from enemies and back to a safe shooting distance.  3) I have many standard action moves, but I also have a lot of free action or passive abilities.  The armor and mount are free, the other Sentient Construct abilities are passive or Swift, all the Racial Paragon circles are passive.  Pretty much every other track ability I have is Standard, using one wouldn't disallow me from using anything else I might want to do at the same time anyway.

Can anyone see any glaring conflicts or issues? Any suggestions to make things work/flow better in or out of combat?

HP too high? I do think I shall check, just in case...

10 HP/level for Wildborn
20 Wis for KDM -> 5 KDM

+1 HP/level from Blacksmith lv 6 (increased to +2 at lv 12, not relevant right now)
+1 HP/level from Optimistic Viscera
+2 HP/level from Grace

(10+5)*9 + (4*8 )= 167

Yep, HP is too friggen high. I see my mistake: I added the 4 hp/level to the level, and that screwed things up. Alright, still a nice HP pool regardless :P

Alright, can we finally get this right, maybe? Final link! https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B81cxZbXH1xfbEE3OTZBMlZFcXM/edit?usp=sharing

You're probably right, but in the original game Unit was kind of a transformer, it was a sub plot for Eberron warforged, so I'm just calling his summoned mount his vehicle mode.

Oh, I made one or two minor change to my character sheet.  I just added my pic (if it wasn't there already) and cleared out the notes section from an older character and filled it in with Fars' own background.

You can use all the same links to get to it, I tested it (and you can also find it in my signature block if you weren't already aware).

Altered my character's name, giving her a public alias and making the team name work a bit better. Plus, it makes sense that she'd come up with a name to use while traveling, so people from her home don't instantly recognize the name and go, "Oh yeah, that's her!"

Brynn Hilder (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0Eiyu5R9VsfeGt3VjEtOUdRZnc/edit?usp=sharing), in truth Razia Ockham and heiress to the Ockham legacy.

Absolutely. A fierce warrior-woman who is sometimes described as a valkyrie, and others described as being strong enough to throw boulders it normally takes 12 men to lift? Sounds like a good reference. :D

The family was torn apart within moments, Rosemarie suffering fatal wounds, and Bartholomew and Irving doing only marginally better. Snowflake plane shifted Bartholomew to anywhere but Shiver Star, then set to healing Irving.
When Irving awoke, the two calmly discussed the matter, Irving conveniently iced to the floor.

    Do you have a secret identity? If so, who knows it? Do you hide it from people who are close to you? Why?
The Lumbering Lancer, known to Snowflake. Not worth hiding.

    Do you work well on teams and in groups? Are you a leader or a follower?
Team player. Don't take orders, don't give orders. Commands are merely suggestions warranting quicker consideration.

Protect everything as part of a close team of heroes!

    What is your greatest fear? Why? What do you do when something triggers this fear?

For your viewing pleasure: Ash Merical.
He's a pretty tough to kill mummy who's great at parties, and better at sapping back health while dishing out debuffs and pain. Now all he needs are some friends.

best part is he still has an open lesser item slot, in case some party needs a vehicle with a free damage sponge... tempting offer, no?

Spoiler
Ash Merical - An outgoing Necromancer who has lost his right hand to the rot when he got too close to his work. Rather than let his career end there, Ash tampered with dark magics to get it back; now he has a magical shadow hand in it's place.

He hides it inside of a rune covered glove, where its occasional murderous impulses are mostly kept at bay, but the hand demands blood once a week. Soot's Grasp, as he begun calling it, had some interesting uses, and he found he could manipulate its shape, length, and sharpness to form a versatile built in weapon or tool of his choice. For a time, his work went exceptionally well with the extra hand around the lab *dodges tomatoes*

Sadly, Ash's misfortunes did not end here, as the rot had begun spreading anew. He turned back to the dark arts to stave the corruption once again, and this time he attempted to mummify himself, crafting a magical encasing he called "The Terror Shell" to contain his warped body. The process was a success, and he now has the gift of semi-undeath while contained in his new suit of well preserved flesh.

He continued his work until he felt it had taken all he had, and was contemplating finding a new line of work when he received a timely invitation for Sigil. Eager for a romantic life of fairy tale that's full of charm, he struck out from his distant home in Equin to find his new school.

He has Mummy, Smiting, and Necromancer as his tracks

He's down here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3UO8bP62QpYakswUW1RU3loMDQ/edit?usp=sharing
