Yes, this is the OOC thread.

So, here I'm going to post the list of players and characters.

And here I'm going to post the list of STs.

Yep. Post characters and such please!

Also could someone decide Faults for my Wonders? I can't exactly do it myself. .-. And anyone still needing Faults, say so.

Joe Yamada (http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=344228) present and accounted for.

To answer your other question, Yuki Akuma, may I suggest we copy and paste the results of our Faults. Once we do that, we'll look them up and see if their thematically compatible with what we've designed. If it is we keep it, if not then we'll discuss amongst ourselves what we should replace it with instead.

Would like some help with a background too.

What's the best way to do Transformed stats in Mythweavers? Just write it under "Additional Information"?

I guess that works. Okay, rolling for Faults (Hammer Arm, Scaramanga Special, Mister Computer, Photonic Display):

I guess so!

ocel
2013-01-16, 01:19 AM
Now, let's see what our li'l rule book has to say about those results:

Joe Yamada's wonders: ATH-29 Jigabachi Skafoi engine = 9 :
The wonder possesses a tediously legal quasi-intelligence and will not function outside of the proper traffic lanes. Flight plans must be filed, lane shifts must be signaled, and so on, or the wonder stalls and requires Wits + Crafts check to restart.

Integrated Armor = 2 :
The armor is vulnerable to one type of element or material, such as wood or silver. Attacks from that material pass through it and ignore Armor.

Integrated Thermo-Optical Camouflage = 2 :
The subject reverts when placed in contact with a fairly common material, such as silver or wood. The genius can spend one point of Mania per turn of contact to maintain the current form.

Jessica Harbridge's wonders:
Mister Computer = 10 : There is a special condition for using the device. This special condition applies to the target area, not the area where the device is located. Roll on the special conditions chart, below.

Photonic Touch Display = 1 :
A certain common sound, word, sight, or thought (a dog barking; a tree; boredom) causes the communication link to shut down, forcing a reboot that takes 1-10 turns.

Photonic Hammer Arm = 7 :
The weapon is fragile. (See that variable, Page 150.) If it is already fragile, it causes the listed damage in explosive force within five feet, with a secondary blast radius of ten feet.

Scaramanga Special = 5 :
The weapon backlashes, causing one Health level of Bashing damage to the user every time it is used. Armor does not protect.

I'm not sure what material/condition would cause these reactions, but we can figure that out later. To resolve this issue, might I suggest subsection-Special Conditions, found on page 268?

Addendum: Oh! I almost forgot Max Hooper's faults, but I can't seem to think of anything that would do, do you?

Mewtarthio
2013-01-16, 08:02 PM
Jana's ready now. I didn't like how putting Tranformed stats separate from regular stats looked, so I went and drew up two sheets: Here's her mundane (http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=500046) self, and here's her as a Hopeful (http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=500047). Backstory's on the first sheet; I'll write about her Blossoming and her life as a Noble on the second sheet after dinner.

2013-01-22, 05:15 AM
Okay, looks like we're ready to go! I'll post the IC thread when I get home (on my phone right now). We can probably assume that the members of the same splats, at least, already know each other? So, uh, just the Geniuses, then?

Yuki Akuma
2013-01-22, 09:43 AM
...Kopout could you write out your Wonders listing their variables and stuff?

The healing Wonder is faultless, right? So I'll roll for the faults for your other Wonders:

[roll0] First is the stun gun, second is the forcefield.

(Sorry for being so disaorganised and stuff. .-.)

Sorry I haven't been active will post wounders latter at school now


Internal Cellular Repair Gland:

Construction: Medicine
Requires: Exelixi ●
Bound Mania: 1
Size: 0 (internal)
Core modifier: -1
Cost per Use: 1 Mania per level of Lethal damage or two levels of Bashing damage healed
Range: Self
Roll: Dexterity + Medicine -1
Variables: Internalized, Self Only

An off the shelf wonder, such a good and simple idea that many people can arive at it independently

Stun ray

Rank 2
Construction: Science
Requires: Katastrofi ●●
Bound Mania: 2
Size: 2 (Pistol & Belt Pouch)
Core modifier: -1
Cost per Use: 1 Mania per charge (10 shots)
Damage: 5 (bashing, neural)
Range: short 20 yards, medium 40 yards, long 80 yards
Roll: Dexterity + firearms+4 (9 again)
Variables: Knockdown

A "Tesla" type ray gun thing attached with a cord like from an old phone to a belt mounted power pack
(do I need to make this rank 2 to benefit from the 9 again thing?)


Anti-bullet field

Rank: 2
Construction: Science
Requires: Prostasia ●●
Bound Mania: 2
Size: 2
Core modifier: -1
Cost per Use: 0 Mania
Range: Self
Roll: NA
Armor:3
Variables: Bullet proof, Ballistic/General rating 4 ballistic/2 general

What I finally settled on for armor, a small and easily hidden generator that produces a field that slows down projectiles as the approach.



So, because of flaws my stun gun only deals 4 bashing and my shield requires 2 mania per minute.

I may go ahead and scrap the shield and try again, after all I have 2 unused roles for just such an occasion

Welp, I feel like an outsider. Then again, Leviathan, so I think that comes with the territory.

No worries! You can hang out with me on the Island of Misfit Splats!

So, if the Geniuses know each other, is anyone willing to be a contact for either of us? I basically took Allies (Machine Embassy) to represent the sort of friends that could arrange something like that for Jana. ToySoldier, want to have our characters know each other? As I alluded in the recruitment thread, Jana would be very interested in studying the Wake; I could say that she ran into one of your Beloved and traced him back to you.

That sounds valid. Perhaps someone who was exposed to the Wake and reacted strongly, convincing Jasper to move on more quickly than he might have liked. The Beloved in question is probably out of the spell by now, but it does provide a decent excuse to have the two know one another.

Welp. Here's the IC thread (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=14585566). Apologies for lateness and lameness.

Also, seriously, no one is offering to take the ST reigns later? I can't just run the game by myself!

Patient RFM
2013-01-24, 01:32 PM
Hi! I know I'm posting this kind of late (can't believe I somehow missed the recruitment thread ;_;), but would it still be okay if I joined? I've already got a finished Genius sheet and written Wonders I can roll ASAP, so I wouldn't hold up the game. I would be willing to help with STing too.

I took points in Lab Space and Equipment. Say yes and get free CANDY SCIENCE! Oh, and don't mind my assassin avatar. He's just mad because he stubbed his toe.

Mewtarthio
2013-01-24, 04:06 PM
If you need another ST, I'll give it a shot.


As for the IC thread, Jana will have done her research on this guy and his claims, so I'm rolling her Int + Occult (with a specialty bonus for psychic phenomena) to see if she shows up knowing anything:

And yes, Patient. It's too late. We've already started and we have enough Geniuses as it is.

Darn! This game looked really fun. :P I would happily take a reserve spot, though, or even still join if the game suddenly requires a Hoffnung team-coordinator/glorious champion of the robotic working class/sixth player.

I'm assuming there's no time pressure, so there's no need to bother rolling to Transform. She's wearing the Barrier Jacket but none of the rest of her Regalia, by the way.

Anyone else want to roll something while we wait for our gm to return, or no? Also, does anyone know where he is? He seems to have been offline for a few days. Should we plan for a substitute just in case? I recall mentioning the campfire storytelling system in the recruitment thread, but I can't tell if it is only per chapter/scene. Even if it is or isn't, we should reserve this rule for emergencies as well.

kopout
2013-01-31, 02:15 PM
I thought it was just evry chapter but I could be wrong. Not that it would help much in this instance because Yuki Akuma's charicter is curently the driving force of the group :smallfrown:

Meh, I'm fine with waiting for Yuki to get back. And I think the idea was to trade off the reigns after an individual chapter/episode.

Mewtarthio

I thought it was just evry chapter but I could be wrong. Not that it would help much in this instance because Yuki Akuma's charicter is curently the driving force of the group :smallfrown:

Once per chapter is the impression I got. Or whenever the GM wants to take a break. I have to agree that it would be bad form to hijack Yuki's plot and character without his consent. For future reference, if the ST needs to take a hiatus, he should PM some brief notes to someone else who can take the reigns; for now, though, I don't think we can proceed without Yuki.

I guess we could cut to a flashback or something? Except neither Jana nor Jasper knows anyone besides each other, so they're kind of left out in the cold.

kopout
2013-01-31, 06:43 PM
Flash back to Jana and Jasper first meeting? The Old Colabrative involved Jessica so doing that without Yuki wouldn't be a good idea.

ToySoldierCPlus
2013-01-31, 10:35 PM
This is... acceptable to me, though it would break the narrative a bit.

Mewtarthio
2013-02-01, 12:04 AM
The Old Colabrative involved Jessica so doing that without Yuki wouldn't be a good idea.

"The Storyteller has been kidnapped by ninja manes! Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the Storyteller?"?

Anyway, the point is for everyone to have something to do; if all the Geniuses are twiddling their thumbs while Toy Soldier and I chat, it kind of defeats the point. Splitting into two groups is fine with me, so long as both groups are still active.

ocel
2013-02-02, 11:08 PM
Then it's agreed. May our Princess'n'Leviathan please post a flashback of their first meeting, while we Genii decide the topic of ours? I recall one of us suggesting something similar to the other two, but I can't seem to find that post, anyone care to find and quote it?

Mewtarthio
2013-02-06, 12:52 AM
Alright, feel free to either show up or take control of Amanda as you see fit. I figure we can share control of NPCs, but I wanted to see your interpretation of the Wake before I started a proper dialog with Amanda.

Mewtarthio
2013-02-06, 06:43 PM
Not sure if we're rolling in the flashbacks. If we do need a roll, though, you know what Amanda's Composure is, so you can go ahead and roll Jana's Transformed Presence + Empathy (9 dice) minus Amanda's Composure for Bath of Souls. That charm suppresses a single active derangement (or all derangements on 5+ successes) for the rest of a scene. No idea how it interacts with the Wake (I'd lean towards the Wake not being affected, since it isn't a derangement, but it's susceptible to mundane psychotherapy, so you could argue either way), which means you get to establish precedent.

ocel
2013-02-06, 07:06 PM
I'm pretty sure y'all can roll without gm supervision. Last I checked 8,9 and 10 are considered successes. You reroll the ten, and apply an appropriate penalty to circumstances beyond your control. For example, 3 or five dice are subtracted from the total of an athletics check to walk across a tightrope at a dangerous height.

Addendum: Anytime you geniuses want to jump in would be grand. If not then I'll send mine tomorrow.

ToySoldierCPlus
2013-02-06, 07:11 PM
That's hilarious. In the process of creating a Beloved, the target actually develops a derangement that goes when either A) the target loses all of the Beloved points it has accrued, usually from no longer being exposed to the Leviathan, or B) when the target is fully affected b the Wake. Because Amanda is fully a Beloved now, she doesn't actually have any derangements. I don't think Bath of Souls would have any meaningful effect on the Wake.

In order to expedite things (and because I have absolutely no concept of Amanda's stats beyond size 5 because she's human), I'd say not rolling would likely be preferable. We're telling a flashback, somewhat like a prelude, and you don't normally roll in those. As long as our characters aren't planning on coming to blows, we should probably just assume that what we try works, unless it explicitly wouldn't according to the rules, or it would make for a better story for the thing to not work.

ocel
2013-02-08, 07:20 PM
Even so, I'd advise the following should we change our mind: Rely on the relevant splat for said npc's character sheet, with a minor detail or two changed. If none is available, then simply assume that every npc has two dots invested in all attributes, one for each skill except those their unlikely to know. This can be easily adjusted for those with specific archetypes. For example, a mechanic would have three dots in crafts and science, maybe two in investigation, et cetera. This has no effect on their character traits, except mechanical, of course.

My area got hit by a heavy snowstorm, hence the delay for this post. Speaking of which, I'm about to post again in the ic thread, but before I do, may I include Jiro Yamada as a side character to your flashback? Also, we should look for a replacement gm soon. Then again, we're doing pretty well by ourselves, so your decision.
