Legend Academy(Sigil PrepxRWBY) PBP General Discussion thread
« 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 and RWBY.


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.

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.

The game would implode into rocket tag in a twisted mockery of all that is wrong with 3.5, angels would weep and the skies would fall, and it would all be your fault. Yours and yours alone.

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...

I've always wanted to play in a Sigil Prep campaign, so I'm in for anything that uses it as an inspiration.

I forgot to post in here. Hell yeah.
"Honestly, I don't know if this non-core option is 1.0-ready"

No, it isn't. It may be updated at some point but it isn't 1.0-ready, which is why it isn't in 1.0. Anything that isn't in the 1.0 core rulebook should be treated as not being 1.0 compliant and used with caution if at all.

As a member of THE Sigil Prep campaign back in the day, I am highly interested in this!

I will talk to CaptainSwift as well and see if he wants to drop in.

I'm interested as well. Though it looks like you are completely full. I guess give me a holler if space becomes available.

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.

A school for monster hunters... Cool. I think I'll figure something for this. Toss my name in the hat.
