    Default The Masks of Majora : A soulmeld project (PEACH!)

    So, I'm going throught the MoI book. Specifically, totemist soulmelds. And I'm noticing one thing more common than any other. Masks. Lots, and lots, and lots, of masks. I think it was the Gorgon Mask that really started this train of thought. Gorgon, goron, you get the picture. So, here I am, about to undertake a rather intimidating project. 24 masks to make. Let's get started, hmm?

    Now, some of these will be easy. Bunny hood and the like. I'm going to have to get more creative for some of them, like Kafei's mask. So, any input on exactly what you'd like to see these soulmelds do would be appreciated.

    The Big Four:

    Deku Mask:

    Spoiler
    Show

    DEKU MASK
    Descriptors: None
    Classes: Totemist
    Chakra: Brow, Feet (totem)
    Saving Throw: (none)

    This plain circular mask looks to be formed of dark wood. At its peak, a trio of fern-like leaves branch out and forward. The eyes of this mask are pools of orange light that seems vaguely sad. It's mouth is an empty, flared cone of wood, jutting straight out from your lips. This mask floats free in front of your face, about an inch in front of your nose.

    While the deku is often regarded as weak or useless, there are situations which call for it's subtlety and unique skills.
    Your deku mask grants you the ability to meld into plants at will, as the meld into stone spell but you can only meld into living, non-mobile plants. You are treated as one size category smaller for determining what plants can accommodate you. This effect lasts up to one minute.
    Essentia: For each point of essentia you invest in this soulmeld, the duration of your meld into plants ability increases by one minute.

    Chakra Bind (Crown)
    The mask grips your face tightly, visible roots creeping under your skin around it's edge. The cone-like mouth bends to mimic your lips as you move them.
    You gain the ability to spit bubbles of plant sap. As a standard action, you can spit a single bubble as a ranged touch attack that deals 1d4 acid damage to one target within twenty feet. You may spend a full-round action to spit a big bubble as a ranged touch attack, which deals 1d6 acid damage to a single target within sixty feet.
    Essentia:For each point of essentia you invest in this soulmeld, you gain +1d4 acid damage on a standard bubble, or +1d6 acid damage on a full-round bubble.

    Chakra Bind (Feet)
    Your body feels light as a feather as the mask seals itself to your face.
    You gain a +10 ft. enhancement bonus to speed, and you gain the ability to skip on the surface of water. By making a DC 10 jump check, you can bounce on the surface of water or any other liquid, springing forward a distance as though you made a normal long jump on solid ground. You can preform this bounce more than once, but each additional time, the DC to bounce increases by 5.
    Essentia: For each point of essentia invested, the DC increase for each successive jump is decreased by one.

    Chakra Bind (Totem)
    The mask melds semlessly with your head, your skin taking on woody patterns and colors your hair taking on a tint of green.
    You take on more plantlike qualities, gaining light fortification and immunity to poison, sleep, paralysis, and stunning.


    Goron Mask:
    Spoiler
    Show

    GORON MASK
    Descriptors: None
    Classes: Totemist
    Chakra: Brow, Hands (totem)
    Saving Throw: (none)

    This wide, oval mask features a broad mouth, large, blue eyes and earth-brown skin. It comes to a peak at the top with a tiny clump of sandy hair ending in a point. It's too wide for your face, and it's surface is hard and earthy.

    The goron is revered as a spirit of the stones of the mountain, it's very flesh hard as stone.
    You gain a +4 bonus to resist bull rush and trip attacks while standing on the ground. You gain a +2 bonus to all bull rush and trip attempts.
    Essentia:For each point of essentia you invest in Goron Mask, you gain an additional +1 bonus to bull rush and trip attempts.

    Chakra Bind (Brow)
    The mask grips your face tightly, and the wide mouth now moves with yours as your skin takes on an earthy brown color.
    Your goron mask gives you DR 3/magic.
    Essentia: For each point of essentia you invest in this soulmeld, you gain an additional point of DR. If you invest two or more points of essentia, the DR becomes /Adamantine.

    Chakra Bind (Hands)
    Your hands suddenly grow bigger, almost twice their original size. Your arms grow more muscular, and your knuckles feel like granite.
    you gain a slam attack that deals 1d8+one and a half times your strength bonus in damage. This attack ignores the hardness of any object you strike.
    Essentia: For each point of essentia you invest in the goron mask, you gain a +1 to attack and damage rolls with your slam attack. In addition, if you have at least 1 point of essentia invested in the goron mask, you can make a free bull rush attempt against anyone struck by your slam. If you succeed, the target is pushed back 5 feet for each point of essentia invested. You do not have to move with them, though you may if you wish.

    Chakra Bind (Totem)
    The mask surrounds your head entirely, the skin of your back becoming thick and stone-like.
    You may roll into a ball as a move action. Doing this grants you a +4 natural armor bonus, but you lose any dexterity bonus to AC you may have, and you can take no actions but purely mental or movement actions.
    While curled into a ball, you can begin to roll. Rolling is a full-round action. You can move up to four times your speed in a straight line and literally run over any creature equal to your own size or smaller. You can make up to two 90-degree turns while rolling, provided there is at least ten feet between each turn. You merely have to move over the opponents in your path; any creature whose space is completely covered by your space is subject to the trample attack. If a target’s space is larger than 5 feet, it is considered trampled only if you move over all the squares it occupies. Your trample attack deals 1d8 points of bludgeoning damage (or 1d6 points if you are Small) plus 1-1/2 times your Strength modifi er. If you are larger than Medium or smaller than Small, the damage scales up or down accordingly (see page 114 of the Player’s Handbook). Trampled opponents can attempt attacks of opportunity, but these take a –4 penalty. (Opponents whose space is larger than 5 feet and whom you do not trample can also take attacks of opportunity at the same penalty.) An opponent can also give up its attack of opportunity and instead attempt a Refl ex save to take half damage from your trample. You can deal trampling damage to each target only once per round, no matter how many times your movement takes you over a target creature.

    The zora mask channels the souls of the peaceful, artistic, water-dwelling Zora people.
    the zora greatly enhances your ability to swim, giving you a +8 competence bonus on Swim checks. With a successful Swim check, you can move at up to your speed (as a full-round action) or at one-half your speed (as a move action).

    Chakra Bind (Brow)

    Chakra Bind (Totem)

    The Goron Mask has conflicting text. It's clear what you meant, but one sentence prevents the other from occurring.

    You may roll into a ball as a move action. Doing this grants you a +4 natural armor bonus, but you lose any dexterity bonus to AC you may have, and you can take no actions.
    While curled into a ball, you may begin to roll. You must always take a run action while rolling,

    Fierce Diety Mask should perhaps require Epic level.
    There aren't any soulmelds that require epic level. (Of course, that doesn't mean that you can't decide to make one anyway.)

    Yippee! Incarnum!

    Deku mask should have a feet bind:

    You gain the ability to run across water for a short distance. You can move up to 20' on the surface of water. Rapid-moving or choppy water is treated as difficult terrain. This movement can be split up over several rounds, but each round you must move at least as far as your base land speed.
    For every additional point of essentia invested, you can move an additional 20' over water.

    Acid looks a little weak, maybe make it 1d4 and +1d4 per point of essentia invested. (1d6 for the larger bubble.)

    Goron mask should do more damage with the trample attack, or just let essentia boost the save DC.

    Bunny hood's speed bonus should be typed, make it enhancement.

    Also, I wouldn't make all of these totemist. Off the top of my head, Fierce Diety, Postman, All-Night, Blast, Stone, Bremen, Romani, Kafei, Couple's, Truth, Gibdo, Garo, Captain's, and Giant's should be Incarnate soulmelds.

    I like the change you made to the bunny mask, nice work. My own was hastly done.

    Just own thing, I choose the crown chakra for it because it wasn't really a "mask" but the other should probably go to the brown chakra instead and if we cant to stay in the spirit of mask perhaps all of them need to be in the brown chakra so that you can only have one of them at time.

    Or just make a special rule about them all being mutually exclusive with eachother... or MAYBE even make it so they take up BOTH slots? That would be wierd, but perhaps acceptable. I am just brainstorming.

    I added a deku water-bounce, and fixed the Goron roll by kidnapping the trample attack from the Shedu Crown. I also installed the modifications to the deku bubble.

    As for totemist: I'm debating, should I just make all of them just available to all meldshapers, or should I make each one specific?

    Here the list of mask for each meldshaper as I see it:
    Totemist:
    Deku Mask
    Goron Mask
    Zora Mask
    Fierce Diety Mask
    Great Fairy Mask
    Romani Mask
    Keaton Mask
    Bremen Mask
    Bunny Hood
    Mask of Truth (not sure with this one but it allow talking to animal so it might be appropriate)
    Gibdo Mask (maybe necrocarnum descriptor ?)
    Giant's Mask

    Incanate:
    Deku Mask
    Goron Mask
    Zora Mask
    Fierce Diety Mask
    Postman's Hat
    All-Night Mask
    Blast Mask
    Stone Mask
    Great Fairy Mask
    Don Gero Mask
    Circus Leader's Mask
    Kafei's Mask
    Couple's Mask
    Mask of Truth
    Kamaro's Mask
    Gibdo Mask (maybe necrocarnum descriptor ?)
    Garo Mask
    Captain's Hat

    Soulborn:
    Deku Mask
    Goron Mask
    Zora Mask
    Fierce Diety Mask
    Blast Mask
    Stone Mask
    Great Fairy Mask
    Mask of Scents
    Mask of Truth
    Garo Mask
    Captain's Hat
    Giant's Mask

    The soulborn have less because they're only "half-meldshaper".

    I made a zora mask, and added a hands bind to the goron mask.

    In regards to the stone mask, how do you think that should be done? Probably bonus to hide checks, then brow bind for meld into stone or invisibility as long as you stay still.

    Edit: Did the all-night real quick-like. Any problems?

    The zora mask is very nice, but I think it would work better to just give them a swim speed equal to land speed and +5 feet per essentia. It's easier and not overpowered.

    As for the stone mask, yes a bonus to hide check seem appropriate.

    As for the bind perhaps I think invisibility as a swift action but only against creature with HD equal or less than your melshaper level. Each point of essentia augment the HD limit by one ?

    The all night one seem nice, simple and usefull.

    Edit: A quick try for the stone mask

    Stone Mask
    Descriptors: None
    Classes: Incarnate, Soulborn
    Chakra: Crown (Soul)
    Saving Throw: (none)
    This mask is a crude round rock with little hole for your eyes and mouth.

    You gain a +4 competence to Hide and Move silently check
    Essentia: For each point of essentia invest in this soulmed the bonus increase by 2.

    Chakra Bind (Crown)
    As a standard action you can gain the benefit of the Hide from Animal spell for 1 minute on yourself only and you can choose to also Hide from magical beast in this manner. Inteligent creature get a saving throw to notice you. (Will negate)
    Essentia: For each point of essentia invest in this soulmeld one additional creature beside yourself can benefit from the effect.

    Chakra Bind (Soul)
    As a swift action you can gain the benefit of an Invisibility spell effective only against creature with equal or less HD than your Meldshaper level for one minute.
    Essentia: For each point of essentia invest in this soulmeld raise your effective Meldshaper level by 1 for the purpose of determining what creature can see you.

    Edit: i add a duration to the invisibility duration.

    Just an issue with fluff, the all night mask is descriped as a torture device, so I disagree with saying it causes no discomfort.

    Okay, here's a shot at Fierce Deity.

    Fierce Deity Mask
    Descriptors: None
    Classes: Soulborn
    Chakra: Brow, Hands
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Your skin and hair grow pale, as an otherworldly power binds itself to your being. White warpaint lays itself over your cheeks and wrists.

    You gain immunity to all fear effects.

    Essentia:
    For every point of essentia invested, you gain a +1 morale bonus to melee damage rolls.

    Chakra Bind (Brow)
    The warpaint on your face becomes the visage of a white-skinned demon, and your mere presence strikes fear in the hearts of your enemies.

    You gain the frightful presence ability. Whenever you charge, all creatures within 30' with less Hit Dice than you must make a Will save or be shaken for 1 hour.

    Chakra Bind (Hand)
    A twisted sword forms in your hand, its twin arcs forming a folded loop. Its weight and presence seem unnatural, almost as though the weapon is more real than reality itself.

    This soulmeld takes the shape of a bastard sword of your size, you may call this weapon to your hand as a free action once per round. The weapon grants an enhancement bonus to attack rolls equal to the amount of essentia invested in it, and it ignores one point of damage reduction for every point of essentia invested.
    Another character may use the sword, but it is treated as a nonmagical bastard sword.

    Unbound it could grant a bonus to attack rolls with alchemic items (which are usually thrown.) That would cover alchemist's fire and whatever type of gunpowder you use in your setting.

    Bound, it should do 2d6+2d6 per essentia invested (twice what soulmelds usually do in damage,) but you take 2+2 per essentia damage (a light hit for your level.)

    The great fairy mask should have a bind that allows you to use a charm monster on fey, and should, unbound, provide bonuses on social interaction-style checks with fey.

    The mask of scents should give you scent, but I'm not sure if you should have to bind it.

    Kafei's mask should be a general displomacy bonus and bind to allow some kind of divination effect, like zone of truth, locate object (or... person?), or something like that.

    Gibdo mask should be a bonus to intimidate, a hide from undead, and maybe a speak with undead? But the Captain's Hat should give speak with undead, and a leadership bonus. The

    Kamaro's mask should give you bonus on perform checks, and bind to give you some sweet battledancer, monk-style moves.

    Mask of Truth should be a powerful one with multiple binds that variously allow zone of truth, some mindreading effect, commune with nature (the rock!), and speak with animal.

    Bremen mask should be a mass charming effect and a bonus on performs.

    The great fairy mask: I was actually thinking of something along those lines.

    The mask of scents: I'm not so sure. I mean, I'm looking at a couple other masks and it seem very hesitant to actually grant scent outright. The other question, is what do you gain from it bound/unbound, whatever is the 'not scent' option.

    Kafei's mask: I was thinking diplomacy bonus, but I was stuck on a bind. I like zone of truth.

    Garo mask Would be intimidate bonus, i'd think, but I don't know what else it would do. They were ninja spirits....

    Gibdo mask I'd say gibdo mask would be speak with undead. As for hide from undead, or maybe it automatically makes undead regard you as 'indifferent'? I mean, it's hard to talk to undead if you're hiding from them.

    Captain's Hat: Definitely gets speak with undead, perhaps speak with the normally dead, and maybe you can, like, summon a skeletal minion?

    Kamaro's mask Hmm... Bonus to perform (dance) checks, definitely. Perhaps it binds to grant dodge bonuses, or maybe you can make perform (dance) checks to fascinate?

    Mask of Truth is definitely going to be fun. I'd say speak with animals, maybe some telepathy, possibly even true seeing on a sufficiently high-level binding slot?

    Bremen mask I was thinking wild empathy, maybe charm animal/animal growth?

    ...Well, while I heartily approve of this endeavor (Majora's Mask is, by far, my favorite Zelda game- even taking Ocarina of Time into consideration), I must say, I am thoroughly disappointed by the Fierce Deity mask. Really, I have no idea where you got this fear thing- I'd personally have it give large size, for starters, then a chakra bind to the hands for a size equivalent greatsword, keep the essentia thing, and maybe 3/encounter can attack as a ranged attack with an increment of 30 ft.- seems more in keeping with the "melee monster" thing the fierce deity embodies.
    You might also want to add a penalty to AC, or somesuch- I seem to remember that, in game, you essentially couldn't block. Not that you'd want to.

    I disagree with the large size. We've still got giant mask to do, and that will be taking care of awesome size-changing powers. The fierce deity mask made you bigger, but that's because you were tiny in the first place. Shoudl the zora mask make you large? I'd say no.

    I could see making the sword a greatsword. I'm not sure how to represent the magic disc-tossing, though. Ranged touch, ranged attack? How does the damage calculate? is it physical, energy or untyped? And no, you could defend with the fierce deity, he turned his sword sideways and held it in front of him.

    Garo's Mask: Have a possible speak with dead effect?
    Captain's Hat: Gain the ability to rebuke undead. Maybe with an effective cleric level equal to around half your meldshaper level. Essentia investment to raise the effective level/some relevant roll.

    Kafei's Mask should have something to do with Gather Information, since that was its primary (and only) use in game.

    You should add Odalwa's, Goht's, Twinmold's, and fishie-thing's remains. Effects on those I'm not sure. And Majora's Mask itself, if you feel like doing something Epic. Have it require one of the epic feats, maybe make it Totemist Soul or Soulborn Heart/Soul chakra. No idea what that would do though.

    Fixed fierce deity (Hopefully) and added great fairy's.

    I do like the idea of the remains being masks of their own. What do you think they would do?
