    Scouur - Elgar
    After deciding on some cheap menu items, Elgar dropped some small change into the waiting staffmember's tray, A few minutes later a tray was brought over carrying breads and dried fruits and things, Elgar thanked the staff from his seat and begun his solo luncheon. The food wasn't the best, it was comprised of various native ingredients, but it was filling nonetheless. Elgar slowly munched away at his plate and when he was done he left it at his table as seemed to be appropriate custom according to others around him. Elgar made his way to the main desk situated behind the fountain and between a couple of arching stairways that led up to the first balcony and no doubt further up to the rooms.

    Elgar was about to speak but noticed that in a similar fashion to the menus, room prices were scratched into a backboard. Elgar hummed over what would suit, but it appeared as if he could only afford a small room for a night before his funds would be depleted. "Small room for one night please." Elgar passed over the last remaining of his coins in exchange for a key, the following day he would have to search out for some work clearing rats or something to earn enough money to survive.


    Gate

    "What do you mean unruly?!" Grol slammed his fists onto one of the round inn tavern tables, glaring menacingly at the apron-clad barkeep who was trying to persuade him to leave. "Listen here buddy." Grol lifted slightly the man by the collar of his shirt. "I'll leave when I want to leave, you hear me?!" Grol threw the man back down. "Now bring me a couple more of them Ales!" Grol was a huge man whose muscles just screamed barbarian or pit-figher. He had since lost his shirt in one tavern scuffle and was suspectedly looking to start another. "YOU THERE, give me your drinks." Grol was reaching for another customer's drinks where were freshly lined on a tray that had been brought over not too long ago.

    Scouur - Elgar
    Elgar stumbled out onto the warm docks of Scouur, a warm breeze licking at his face and a harsh sun shining on above. "Arid..." He hopped out of the way of some shipsmen loading and unloading various parcels, the Gheist had mostly been carrying passengers as its cargo but there was a lot of baggage associated with the richer of travellers. Elgar quickly hurried along the docks and into the city proper, while he was dressed for warmer climates, he would not fare well in the harsh sands of the surrounding desert.


    Scouur was a tropical oasis comprised of tents and sandy buildings, the surrounding sands are said to be littered with half pillars and lost artifacts, making this a perfect grounds for archaeological research and digs, as Elgar walked through the townspace he noted a surprisingly large number of street merchants and beggars looking for fresh travellers off the dock that they could try to scam. Elgar instinctively grasped his sword over his shoulder, it was his only real possession at the moment, he rearranged its sheath to lay against the lower flat of his back so that it would be more difficult to snatch without his noticing.

    After a brief wander Elgar seemed to make it to a relatively nice looking inn, he had found that the street people were more eager to approach those that looked as if they possessed wealth. The lower floor of the inn was a semi-nice looking tavern with a fountain in the middle of its sandstone floor, which, like most other things in the city, was littered with sand. The tavern area was mostly sandstone but the upper levels seemed to be made out of some dark wood.

    Elgar decided to take a seat before asking about rooms, he took a seat in a booth and noticed that the etchings in the sandstone walls, which he previously believed to be decorative, were actually menu items, there were several currencies listed, elgar suspected that in these lands gold was gold.

    Everything is abstract in this system. Someone with 1 STR could defeat (Melee fight) someone with 10 STR given the right circumstances, though given the difference it would be 'highly unlikely', given the difference I'd argue 'borderline impossible'.
    I describe 10 STR (after training) as 'as strong as you could possibly be at this point in time, in regards to the particular weapon'. I don't have a direct force-exertion translation scale or anything crazy. In terms of pathfinder stats if they're familiar to you, 10 STR would be a score of about 20 STR(pf). This system starts from 0 instead of 10.

    (It doesn't directly translate though, since 1 is considered 'average', not 0. 3 is 'heroic', 5 is 'epic', 7 is 'legendary', 10 is 'the best' )
    Stats are not the core focus of the system, they're just there to give you a rough estimate and provide a TRPG-like experience. I'm a fan of creative freedom, the rough guidelines are just that.


    IC thread is up.
    I had themes for the two towns, but MCF doesn't seem to give a good way to link to youtube videos without displaying the whole thing on the page, which looked incredibly ugly in the post.

    As 10 points in one stat 'naturally' (before skills/powers) is literally the highest a beginning adventurer can have in this system, having 10 after training is as if you have trained your whole life to be the best at that weapon.


    Having 10 naturally would be as if you were born to be huge and nothing more. (Since you'd have 0 in stats like DEX and INT.)

    Your situation (10 while raging) is akin to using anger and utilizing training from muscle memory perfectly.

    Port Gate


    As the Scourer pulls in to the docks, Swoorl stands in the mists of the backdrop, this 'small port town' is nothing short of a bustling city itself. Standing as a door between other continents and Spindol, its structures are a mishmash of numerous cultures from southward lands. The ship is waved in and tie proceedings are undergone quickly. Paying guests are ushered down onto the damp docks first, luggage in tow, followed by those who worked their travel fees off envoyage. As the Scourer is primarily a cargo ship, inhabitants are encouraged to leave the scene quickly with little so much as a goodbye from longstanding crew. Other ships come and go just as the Scourer, transporting all manner of things to and fro.




    Port Scouur


    The three-masted Gheist pulls in through Scouur with a little more than enthusiasm, tilting more than pleasantly to the right before gliding in to dock. The ship's doors swing open and planks are set to allow passengers to leave at their leisure, the Gheist carried all sorts from wealthy merchants to archeologists and adventurers. Scouur was a desert town, part native, part foreign, many travelled here for its unique relic aspect, the surrounding sands seemed to contain endless archeological wonders and artifacts, uncovering such was paramount to fortune. Stalls set up throughout the city's walkways sold endless streams of odd-looking objects, most of which was useless garbage and forgeries.


    ((Two Ships. You are free to be aboard either.))

    Okay, there are a couple of things that I would like to ask,

    I cannot understand the difference between Channel Aura and Channel Soul. From what I have read, Aura changes the physical properties whilst Soul can give the item properties of a spell... i'm probably wrong so can you please explain in detail?




    Yes.

    Channel Aura: This spell lets a weapon take on the 'aura' of its weilder. Aura has no associated stats, it is more of a flair thing. Eg. A black flaming sword that will not let the user back down.
    Channel Soul: This spell lets a weapon take on a physical aspect of the user, eg STR, INT or perhaps a spell the user knows.

    Quote from pokemad1»

    Also what would the "Anti" of magic missile be?




    Anti Magic Missile might create a magical projectile that cancels out (or weakens if you are not powerful enough) any magic it hits.

    Quote from pokemad1»

    Does this mean twice the amount of spells that you can cast per day, or something else?




    This means that it cost 2x the amount of spell uses to cast a 'Big' spell, etc.

    So for example, If I could cast 4 'Magic Missiles' in a day, then I could only cast 2 'Big Magic Missiles' in a day. (Each one counts as using 2 spells at the same time.)

    Fatigue only affects your ability to exert your physical self, you can still activate any abilities or cast any spells that you know. Think of it more as early stages of tiredness, not yet affecting the mind but it would do so if you were to exert yourself. That's a little too long for a status condition name so I'm just calling it 'fatigue' for now.

    In terms of combat:

    DEF is your ability to endure an attack.
    DEX is your ability to move out of the way of an attack.


    High DEF on a slim, lightly armored character would be akin to some sort of martial artist who has endured harsh conditions and has toughened skin.

    High DEX on a slim, lightly armored character would be closer to the deft parrys and dodges you describe.

    It really helps if you've played a TRPG like D&D to see what skills are tied to which actions.

    In the end this system merely uses stats to determine whether your acions are realistic within the setting. For example, someone with 1 MAG is not going to be raising armies of the dead and enslaving minds with a mere thought. Someone with 1 STR isn't going to be throwing a punch that can knock out a minotaur. Someone with 1 INT isn't going to be solving the mathmatical mysteries of the universe.

    Just a quick question, but I noticed that Low-Light Vision can be given as a bonus to some races, would the Foxkin be eligible?




    Yes.
    Also for consistency's sake, Exhaust will just treat the target as having the 'Fatigued' status ailment (You cannot exert yourself [use your strength for most things] until you have rested (meal/sleep/meditate/etc) ) If it brings their score to 0 or lower. Simply because I don't want to deal with negative scores for now in a system that aims to be as straightforwards as possible. This doesn't change anything, just a nuance.

    Even if they're not mythical, I wouldn't class Yokai as 'from a fantasy setting', they're pretty japanese folklore specific. This RPG setting doesn't really share earth history or culture. I would instead encourage magical beasts of your own design rather than using any culture's folklore. Of course an intelligent creature that is noncompliant with the rules of civilization is subject to be hunted, so be careful.


    The realm of ghosts and demons is mostly generic TRPG style, Demons come from Abyssal realms of outer planar dimensions. Ghosts are souls unallowed to rest due to some injustice. Yokai aren't typically a thing in a Wizard and Wyvern setting.

    ((xD This looks fun))

    Name:
    Zolar Sapphire
    Title: Multiverse traverser

    Backstory: Born in 2070X Zolar was grown and weathered to be capable of surviving harsh conditions that may be present when attempting to make the jump between universes. From a handful of subjects Zolar was selected to travel to Universe designated Λ73Bx (Current Earth) And was attached to prototype machinery. Unfortunately the machines only work one day, so far after every test subject is sent, there is no way to tell if they have actually gone somewhere or just straight up perished. As far as Zolar is concerned, he is the first to have made it somewhere and survived, now he must find a way back, armed with only a time-knife (A knife that can also tell the time) and the broken machinery attached to his body.

    Fight!:
    "What, what is this...?" Solar held his hands up to his face, the sun in this realm was brighter than the one back home where pollution clouded the skies into an eternal night-like state. "Where am I.... I'm alive." Zolar quickly drew his knife and held up up in the air, it cast a shadow against the smooth yet bumpy black ground beneath his feet. "Okay, so it's eleventeen blurgeks past a cropple, too bad the time on this planet likely strays from that back home." Zolar looked up, his eyes were adjusting to the light, there was a large object speeding his way. "Hmm, that looks like a truck."

    ((Trucks also happen to exist in Λ00Ax))

    Yeah, that. Basically it's anything sensible goes.

    I guess this is enough interest, but I'm still feeling particularly lazy, So I guess this will not become the OOC thread for a little while longer.

    Zaera dashed among the sturdy trunks of the forest, avoiding shots where necessary, at least 5 things were following him, he couldn't get a direct read as they were all behind him and too zig-zagged amongst the tree coverage. There can't be more than eight of them. Zaera stopped at a larger tree and rebounded into the fray where he expected the enemy to be, one bolt dashed just above his shoulder, he could feel the heat emanating from it as it passed and smouldered part of his clothing, but also this gave away the position of one of his combatants. Zaera wove around the brush, using his sword to gently skewer this unfortunate soul but with only moments to jump out of the way of another searing shot that would have otherwised struck the back of his head. "You guys are no good at this, your weapon's fire give off too much sci-fi-ey whizzes and hums, you should have stuck with weapons a little more melee and aero dynamic.


    And then Zaera's thigh was grazed with a shot from his left. "Ouch, also gotha." Zaera tossed his bag at the first and dived into the scrub that was home to a second enemy. His chain continued with him evading semi-gracefully, taking a couple of hits yet also making quick work of these presumed henchmen. "All in the work of a day."
