PostSubject: Soul Hunter (OOC topic, Sign-ups, FTJ)   Sat Jul 17, 2010 9:48 pm

Alright, so Master Gear is not giving me enough test data, so I am starting a new RP to gather a bit more data for my RP system.

Who would be interested in a new RP GMed by me? Here are the details:

Story:

Welcome to Soaria! The World divided by great wars, now at peace. The delicate balance of power between kingdoms is soon to be broken yet again by one of the Kingdoms. Nevertheless...nobody knows which kingdom wants to start the war again.

For the purpose of maintaining balance and cleaning the land out of various dangers, each Kingdom is preparing their own army of special warriors, called the Soul Hunters. These people can use special powers, based of the souls they acquire through the hunt. Having special privileges, they travel the world looking for rare Souls and solving problems. Now, the Soul Hunters are yet again called to duty to investigate, leaving only the fresh newbies in their Kingdoms, preparing themselves for challenges.....and collecting Souls!


But there is more than meets the eye......



Unknown1: So.....when does it start?
Unknown2: I guess soon. We are still preparing for it.
Unknown1: How much longer?
Unknown2: About a year. We need to gather supplies....
Unknown1: .....good. Continue.




Game System:

We shall be using again the similar mechanic as Master Gear, however more leisurely. It will mainly feature:
- The stats system.
- Domination system (no HP for players)
- Combo system.
- Improved Skill Tree system.
- Soul Skill system.


Now, to put it in simpler terms. Each player has to choose a Kingdom, out of 5 available ones. Each Kingdom grants different privileges and starting equipment.

Kingdom of Dukany
Spoiler:
 

Kingdom of Rosa
Spoiler:
 

Kingdom of Aera
Spoiler:
 

Terran Republic
Spoiler:
 

Kingdom of Gorna
Spoiler:
 

The RP will lack the item creation system to make it simpler though. Instead, you will receive a Skill Tree based on the class you choose. You will also be able to equip up to 5 "Souls" which will be your items. These souls will do various things. They might increase your stats, add special effects or even new skills to use. Equipping them and unequipping can be done in any safe place between missions. You are however restricted to 5 souls at once.

Also about the Skill Tree system. Every skill will be "at-Will" used. Also, every skill tree will show you all of the class skills at once. During the course of RP, you will receive ST points to learn new skills and CST points to adjust the known skills. However this time, you will be able to choose HOW the skill evolves, and it can be modified an infinite amount of times.

Now, about the classes. Although the classes might suggest something, the Soul Hunters do NOT wear specific clothes/armor or use specific weapons. Your character can be dressed anyway and can use any weapon you wish. The skills are energy attacks made out of Soul Energy.


Combat:

In combat, you can chain your ST skills and Soul skill with weapon attacks however you wish, with just 2 restrictions.

1) If the attack states it somehow moves you or the enemy, the next chained attack has to somehow link with it. For example, if you had an attack that sends the enemy flying high, you cannot use an earthquake attack, but have to chain it with something that either makes you pursuit the enemy into the air, or shoot at him.

2) You cannot repeat the same skill twice in the post. If for example you use "Soul Buster", you can link it with "Soul Kick", but you cannot use "Soul Buster" again in that post.



Available classes:
- Weapon Master (Uses his Soul Powers to create various weapons to attack the enemy and to defend himself)
- Guard (Uses his Soul Powers to create shields and barriers that block damage and reflect it back at the enemy. Also specializes in counter attacks)
- Elementalist (Uses Soul Powers to bend the natural elements of the world and adjust the world to his will)
- Psy Warrior (Uses Soul Powers to dominate enemy will and create illusions)
- Ranger (Uses Soul Power to attack the enemy at a distance with various long range attacks)
- Demon (Uses Soul Power to summon dark forces that dominate the battle field with brutal attacks)
- Enchanter (Uses Soul Power to increase his physical abilities, applying damage only with his weapons and body, yet with more power than humans or monsters)
- Emperor (Has mixed abilities for offense, defense and support, yet does not specialize in anything specific)

Skill Tree

- Weapon Master
Spoiler:
 

- Guard
Spoiler:
 

- Elementalist
Spoiler:
 

- Psy Warrior
Spoiler:
 

- Ranger
Spoiler:
 

- Demon
Spoiler:
 

- Enchanter
Spoiler:
 

- Emperor
Spoiler:
 



Anyway, you can post if you are interested, I will be updating the Kingdoms, their privileges and the Skill Trees with time. Anybody in for the RP? It will be however much simpler than Master Gear.

Hello there. ^_^ I'm definitely interested in joining. =D I'm leaning toward an Elementalist or a Psy Warrior. Very awesome concepts, indeed. =]

I'm totally game, I really enjoy the skill system from Master Gear. And maybe I'll enjoy this one slightly more without the Magi-Tech item creation. XD

It's fun, but just kinda tedious to come up with the ideas and find the correct parts to make the item you want.

I call the Psy Warrior. For once I'll go true with my specialty. Back then it was Guy trying to play the illusionist (I'm referring to the RP where Nike got Carnage) so I'll take that route and show him how it's done. More data to practice the Psy Warrior's style will only improve the future RPs when a similar class appears.

The Kingdoms are now updated. You can see which ones you fancy. Remember that your "Privileges" do NOT work in other countries, unless they share the same privilege. You do NOT gain privileges by traveling to different countries.

For example. If you come from the Terran Republic and visit Kingdom of Dukany, you will NOT have free stays at INNs, making you pay for them. Yet, you will NOT be able to push people around, even if they are peasants or slaves. You still however have access to the dangerous areas and to the castle.

The skill tree for Weapon Master is ready.

I'll also use this post to explain something about skill trees.

You start knowing ALL of those moves. That is right, you have access to all of your attacks from the start. You can use them, chain them, etc. So how do you become stronger? By customizing the skills. As you can see, the skills are neither flashy, nor too powerful. That is your low power due to being right out of your training.

During the course of the RP you will be receiving ST points. You can spend those points to increase the ability of your skills. You can CHOOSE how the skill evolves, and you can change it an infinite amount of times. The description of the skill will always change according to what the skill can do. If the skill states that it "Slashes with a sword", it exactly "Slashes with a sword".

I'll give an example.


Let's say that you use Weapon Master. You gained 3 ST points and you wonder what to choose. You like your Ethereal Blade and abuse it a lot, so you decide to increase its damage, make it poison the enemy and recover your HP over time. The result skill description would be this then:

"Ethereal Blade - Summon a sword into your hand from ethereal matter. The blade can be used to cut both physical and non-physical matter with incredible sharpness and can be used to block. The blade is poisonous and shines an aura that slowly heals your wounds. This skill works until is deactivated. "



Now you understand how the ST works? You can make the skills into whatever you wish by customizing them and stating HOW you want the skill to evolve.





And just as an end note. Remember that the more attack skills a class has, the bigger combos he can perform. You cannot use the same skill twice during your post, so those that have a lot of attacks can perform long combos for huge damage. Weapon Master definitely can perform the most combos possible although he suffers a lack of support skills.


EDIT:

Skill tree for Guard is ready.

Dang you SX.... Guard has so many defensive skills he actually makes me wonder if I should choose Psy Warrior. And...... Kingdom of Rosa has free access to Libraries? That's powerful bait.

....... *is waiting for more of those skill trees* Now I really wonder what we'll be getting with the other classes. Soul Rend covers Telekinesis among its powers too? But would Teleportation fit anywhere among those? <.<

Ranger sounds badass... tag me down for that cause it doesn't seem like there's an agile dude enough for me.

I'll read more through this.

Gonna edit in my outfit in a sec, but is it possible to have something like a revolver? Or does that totally skew the Ranger ST?

There are no such sophisticated weapons as revolvers in Soaria. You have to agree on a normal, non-mechanical weapon.

Everything seems fine for now. I will be preparing a lot of stuff for tomorrow.

Oh yeah, Magnus.....would it be too much if I asked for another Sub Forum for the RP? We are also waiting for Haniaethol to reply with a character sheet.


None the less, the RP starts.....in 24 hours perhaps.

We should perhaps try to get some more people, no? Advertise it a bit cause you'll be getting the same people plus one. XD


And yeah, you're the RP Mod. I'll get that set up for you right away.

Also I'll update in a sec.

Well in that case, I'll leave advertising to Book, since he is always on the CB or most of the time.

Tomorrow I will prepare some additional stuff for the RP. Nevertheless the starting party will be able to start already, since the others can always join at a later date or something. This won't be a super fast RP, since this time I am experimenting with a vast world.
