    Default The Return of Malfeas OOC

    And so, here's a place to discuss all of our Out of Character stuff. I ask that we use the first few posts to put up our characters sheets, but other than that, use this thread for anything you want!

    EDIT: Added in the Aliens

    Skraelings
    Spoiler
    Show
    Hailing from the frigid northern continent of Vinland on the planet Michilimackinac, the Skraelings are, essentially, a race of sentient, humanoid Polar Bears. Despite living in a such a technologically advanced society that most would see as "having outgrown such silly superstitions", the Skraelings are, as a whole, deeply religious, and even polytheistic. They believe that the only way one can enter the afterlife is to die gloriously in battle. They are a proud race who have, from time immemorial, vied for control of their homeworld with another sentient species. This has crafted them into a race of warriors, who live in tribes based on family bonds. (Basically, their culture is based on a mash-up of Nordic and Native American traditions.)
    Mutation Package: Fur, Fangs, Large


    Suchos
    Spoiler
    Show
    Originating on the balmy equatorial continent of Iteru on the planet Michilimackinac, the Suchos are a race of sentient, humanoid Crocodiles. The Suchos tend to live near water, and have vied for control of their homeworld and its colonies with the Skraelings for thousands of years. This has bred bitter resentment between the two species. Suchos are a very united race, and are very loyal to the Central Empire. They used to be very religious, but after a catastrophic drought that nearly wiped out their species, they came to believe that their God had died. (Their culture is sort of a mix of ancient Egyptian and modern Arabic)
    Mutation Package: Scales, Fangs, Large, Tail


    Tavar
    Spoiler
    Show
    The Tavar are a small race, bearing resemblance to bipedal Wolverines, who come from the planet Carna. They're fierce, and despise having their size commented on. The Tavar are stubborn, but they are also very cunning. Most people in the Galaxy have a fairly positive view of the Tavar, because they have a reputation for finding unorthodox solutions to even the most serious problems. Most Tavar think that being part of The Empire is the greatest thing that ever happened to their species, and are fiercely loyal to it.
    Mutation Package: Small, Fur, Claws


    Czerin
    Spoiler
    Show
    The Czerin closely resemble humans, but for a few minor differences. They have pointed ears, and their pupils are vertical slits. The Czerin are descended from a race of pack hunters on the planet Vostok. They value their family above all else, and tend to be resentful of The Empire for conquering them. Czerin are often prized as assassins, because their bite is fatally venomous to most species.
    Mutation Package: Toxin, Enhanced Sight


    Tharks
    Spoiler
    Show
    The Tharks are a large race of green-skinned humanoids originating on the planet Barsoom. They live in large tribes, who are constantly at war with each other. The Empire lets them have their conflicts, rather than incite rebellion amongst them. Tharks are notoriously distrustful of other races, though they are intensely loyal friends if one can gain their trust. They are strong and formidable fighters, partially due to the fact that they have four arms. The Tharks worship a goddess named Issus, and elderly Tharks often take their own lives rather than waste away and die slowly from natural causes. Thark children are hatched from eggs, and raised communally by the tribe, never knowing who their real parents are.
    Mutation Package: Giant, Tusks, Multiple Limbs

    Starmetal Perfected Kata Bracers (****)
    When a form-type charm is active, I add my Essence to the Accuracy, Damage and defense of all the weapons compatible with that style. Charms from the same style also cost 2 motes less each, to a minimum of 1

    Fateful Sail excellency
    Fateful Firearms excellency
    Fateful Resistance excellency
    Fateful Martial Arts excellency


    Resistance:
    4 free Ox-Body techniques
    Optimistic Security practice
    Heartless maiden stance

    Sail:
    Stone skipping spirit
    Mirror-Shattering method

    Firearms:
    Holistic bullet methodology - For 1m, I may fire a ranged attack without using any ammunition. If I don't have a gun, this makes the attack into the equivalent of a Holdout pistol shot with Starmetal bonuses.

    Steel and smoke mandala - For 8m, I make a Firearms magical flurry of up to eight attacks directed against different targets within range, or up to five attacks against a single target, using one bullet.

    Investigation:
    Efficient Secretary technique

    Dodge:
    Absence - For a reflexive 2m, penalties to my Dodge DV against an attack are negated. Using it against successive attacks in a flurry also raises the target number of the enemy attack by 1

    Duck Fate - For 10m, may roll Dexterity+Dodge against any undesirable effect, difficulty equal to the effect's essence (or 1, in the case of natural effects. If I pass, the effect is perfectly dodged.[/i]

    Martial Arts:
    Secrets of future strife - May pay 3m when joining battle to automatically convert five dice on the roll to successes.

    Blade of the Battle Maiden - May pay 5m, 1wp as a reflexive action to enchant my natural weapons with the stats of a Starmetal Daiklaive

    Joy in Adversity stance - Spend 2m to reflexively activate this for the scene. While active, any attacks that I dodge add an additional dice to my next unarmed attack. Using a perfect defense ends this charm early.

    Flight of Mercury - For a 2m supplemental cost, an unarmed attack reduces it's speed by 1 and I may move up to 4 yards to properly engage.

    Violet Bier of Sorrows Form - Simple action, 5m. While active, enemies double their wound penalties on any actions which might oppose me, every level of damage dealt to a spirit consumes one of it's motes, and all my attacks gain an Overwhelming tag of 4.

    Death-Deflecting Blow - If struck, I may reflexively spend 4m to reduce the raw damage of the attack by my Parry DV, and reduce the minimum damage by 1 dice, to a minimum of 1. Does not function against unexpected attacks.

    Life-Severing Blow - For 5m, an attack may be supplemented, adding my essence to it's raw and minimum damage levels. Enemies reduced to their incapacitated level may be Shaped into a cloud of purple dust, instantly killing them. Against mortals, the same effect can be achieved with a single health level of damage.

    Metal Storm - For 7m, 1wp, I may make up to my Martial Arts in attacks against a single target as part of a magical flurry.

    Conclusion-Pursuing approach - May add a surcharge of 10m and 1wp to Violet Bier of Sorrows form. The penalties from wound multipliers and tripled rather than doubled, and my attacks against creatures outside of fate also devour motes and become aggravated. May use a Prayer Strip to upgrade attacks further - every hit strips one willpower from the target. If they have no willpower, it takes 10 motes. If they have no motes, it shapes them dead instantly.

    Destinies:
    The Officer - In this guise, Watson is visibly an officer in the Imperial Fleet and the captain of his ship. He has authority and rank, but the eye is drawn primarily towards his rank stripes, and not towards his face.

    The Courier - When wearing this destiny, Watson is clearly a functionary on important and official business. People generally feel an odd sort of compulsion to get out of his way and not impede his progress.

    The War Hero - When Watson dons this guise, he stops becoming a mostly forgettable individual and becomes instead Captain Watson, hero of the Battle of Barsoom.

    The Sidereal - When he wants to be acknowledged as what he is, Watson dons this destiny. He becomes essentially faceless and unyielding, an Agent of the Empire and privy to secrets.

    Backstory:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Pre-exaltation: "...yeah, I'm from the Epsilon Alliance. No, you won't find it on the map - the official name these days is the Epsilon Territories. But we still call it the Alliance.
    Back in the days, the Epsilon Alliance was a republic of several inhabited systems, plus a growing collection of orbital colonies (one of my uncles retired on an O'Neil cylinder). We've always boasted a fairly eclectic population - nearly 30% aliens. My family had a long and proud military tradition.
    That didn't help much when the Empire showed up. The Alliance put up a good fight, of course. We had our share of heroes. My mother got her own battlecruiser, and participated in the Battle of Savar's Rings. But the imperials had numbers, superior firepower, way more Dragon-Blooded than us, and a Lunar admiral. We would have needed a miracle to win.
    After the war, we became one of many imperial territories. That was seven years before my birth, by the way. Most of my family figured if they wanted to preserve some of Epsilon's freedoms, the best way to go at it was from within the system - which is why our military tradition is still going strong. I like to think it wasn't all for nothing: Have you heard about the political troubles five years ago? When the imperial governor tried to pass the Emergency Act, my mother, commodore Berger, was one of the highest-ranking officials to resign in protest. The governor backed down, so, I guess it worked.
    I guess I was raised on a mix of imperial propaganda and old-school Epsilon Alliance values. Oh, I don't kid myself - there isn't going to be some glorious revolution where we throw off imperial shackles and restore our cherished democracy. But I'm here, in the Imperial Army. I'm an elite officer. I get to have some say in how things are done. If I play my cards right, I can make the Empire a less crappy place, at least a little."

    Exaltation: "...to hear the propaganda about it, you'd think I'd single-handedly crushed the armies of the Stellar Intelligences or something. It wasn't that grand, really. Let me tell you the story:
    Imperial Intelligence had discovered a Malfean stealth ship heading for Elix V. It was a prospection ship, meaning they were looking for something. Our records suggested the planet had been abandoned for a pretty long time, but they sent our team to investigate. They figured a Dragon-Blooded might be needed, which was why Nexon was our commanding officer for the mission. I was second-in-command, and chief engineering expert.
    The good news were, we caught a lucky break early in the mission and managed to decipher their communication; they'd found a pretty advanced ancient installation there, with advanced tech, a fully operational fusion plant, and a bunker system that went miles below the surface - the whole thing seemed to be some kind of vault meant to safeguard whatever was kept underground. The bad news were, we'd underestimated Malfean stealth; they hadn't brought one ship, but eight. We were badly outnumbered, and they had noticed us.
    Their initial assault sent us on the run, and almost killed Nexon. He was out of commission, which left me in charge. I figured there was really only one way out that mess, so I led the troops to that abandoned facility...No, no, I'm not saying it was easy, we had to rely on misdirection and...look, we'll be here all day if I give all the details. The short version is, we got to the facility, reprogrammed the fusion plant, and went down the bunker. We had several miles of rock standing between us and that power plant when it took the Malfean forces out in a thermonuclear explosion.
    And then...well, it turned out the vault contained an old Solar Shard. We only figured that one after it spontaneously activated and went for me, though.
    What I'm going to do now? Well, we kind of have a global war with the galaxy at stake going on. I intend to win it, and send the Stellar Intelligences back to the void."



    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Erin Berger is a hero through and through. She wishes for a world where justice is reliable, the rights of the weak are protected, and disagreements are resolved through civilized discussion rather than violence. And since that's not how the world currently works, she takes it upon herself to MAKE it work like that where she goes.
    Berger is highly critical of the Central Empire, but she doesn't want it gone, either. Rather, she wants to turn it into the sort of nation she can serve proudly.


    Notes on Backgrounds:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Berger's Artifacts were provided by the Central Empire's military after her exaltation. Her current Backing score is both the result of her fairly high rank, and the current wariness of her superiors. The Influence comes from her status as a war hero.
    During one of her recent missions in the war, Berger and her squad snuck aboard an unaffiliated merchant ship to escape a Malfean blockade. The Malfeans found out, and the ship suffered immense damage in the escape. The military wouldn't pay for the collateral damage, so Berger chose to reimburse the ship's repairs out of her own pocket. As such, she is currently penniless and living off army chow - hence the absence of a Resources background.

    I am a little concerned about the sudden vanishing of players. I mean, sure, Exalted can be done with relatively few people (the basic characters are easily powerful enough to take care of themselves) but I was fairly sure there were other folks interested in this...

    Alright Horus has cleared my sheet so here it is:

    Background:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Shortly before Yugash began it's journey back into the known worlds God Constellation Autochthon ordered the construction of several new Exalted to aid Yugash in it's dangerous mission Passionate defender of Orthodoxy was one of these new Exalted and was given the task of preparing the Populat for the strange new worlds they would face.

    Initially Passionate Defender of Orthodoxy spent much of his time with the lectors giving sermons and helping to maintain the moral of the Populat. All that changed however when heretic Voidbringers sabotaged some of Unquestioned Strength of the Populat's defensive systems allowing the Shrieking Hordes to desended upon the city.

    When this occured Passionate Defender was in the middle of listening to the High Celebrants weekly sermon and surrounded by some of the highest ranking members of the Tripartite. Passionate Defender managed to get them to a nearby shelter then took up a weapon vowing not to let a single creature inside. Drawing heavily on memories of one of his previous lives who had been an experienced soldier he stood his ground for two days fighting off many attacks until the city was finally cleared of the foul creatures.

    Due largely to his heroism the Tripartite leadership made it through relatively intact which helped speed the recovery process. When it was reaveled that sabotage was responsible Defender vowed to hunt down those responsible. Aiding the Preceptors he spent the next few years eradicating every voidbringer cults they could find.

    As Yugash neared the frontier tales began to circulate that Malfeas had returned. Knowing that Malfeas still harbored resentment for Autocthon and wished to destroy him Yugash's leadership knew they had to act. However should they engage Malfeas directly or let the forces of the central empire deal with him? Will he leave them alone or seek to destroy them? After weeks of deadlock Passionate Defender stepped forward to address the assembly. He argued forcefully that the longer they waited the stronger Malfeas would become and asked for permission to aid the imperial forces until the assembly could come to a decision themselves.

    When Defender made contact with imperial forces he was directed to others gathering to engage the growing threat.

    Watson has an Indomitable class frigate. I was generally envisaging this being the party ship, assuming we're all going to be in a group together. Seeing as I'm the only one with Sail, and that Horus said the anima power works on the ship I'm piloting, I'm basically your pilot.

    (Can handle myself in combat as well, but that's a strictly second line focus)

    Also, Valor 5? Wow. That'll be interesting. I mean, James has Valour 3, but that's more representative of a somewhat overconfident attitude fighter pilots sometimes have than the Alchemical's apparent insane bravery. And with Temperence 1. Oh, you are just going to be amazingly easily to goad into a fight.

    I sent Perdue a PM with a link to the thread. If he's still interested, I hope he'll get in on the game. If not, would you guys rather just start the game with three players, or reopen recruitment?

    Siku, Night Caste Solar
    The Infiltrator



    Spoiler
    Show
    Name Siku
    Exalt Type and Caste Solar Night
    Anima A woman playing a harp.

    Motivation Infiltrate every organizations and governments in the Galaxy.

    Backstory
    Siku has trained all his life to be an infiltrator. He learned how to blend in the crowd and used thrown weapons, as his favorite mean of taking out targets. It was an easy and quiet way to take care of his objectives. Siku exalted during one of his infiltration mission, where he had managed to bypass most of the building defenses and ended up surrounded by many guards. He attacked them from the shadows. They couldn't do anything and ended up being dispatched.

    Since his exaltation, he applied as an infiltrator for the Lunar Empire. He has been working diligently ever since, going to places where most people wouldn't dare to go and gathering intelligence on their foes.

    Beside doing some infiltration, Siku enjoyed his time during missions and exploring weird and exotic planets. When the message came through that they needed to find a way to banish Malfeas, he was one of the first to sign up for this task. Since then, he had been looking all over the planets for a way to banish Malfeas.

    I apologise if that charm breaks the intended investigation a little, but... Sidereal. The original charm goes and reads the answer in the loom of fate, so it's virtually impossible to fool provided you're not a Raksha.

    As an example, the book lists 'Who stabbed Sestus Leor' as a valid question, but not 'who murdered Sestus Leor', as murder is a matter of intent rather than facts.

    Well, Berger definitely won't mind if he uses the same Charm to answer her question about logistics. Are his forces dependent on unbihexium batteries? Does he need more optronic chips to automate his armies? Does he need antimatter reserves for energy? Carbosteel to build more ships?

    Unfortunately, the charm is limited to fairly exact questions. The spider has no knowledge of war or logistics, so it cannot judge the logistical requirements of the Malfean ships. It could probably pull up total and exact schematics of their individual designs, though, as well as their exact numbers and dispositions in any particular theatre. I expect the rest of the Sidereals already have.

    So, let's get underway. Time to save the galaxy.

    Well, I suppose I should have looked at the OOC thread much sooner than I did... But the fact that you used that charm is fine by me. I have no problems with PCs using any of the resources available to them.

    I couldn't find anything in the books to help me work out the exact travel times for a ship, so I made them up. In any case, we are moving at top speed multiplied by six here, due to Watson being a Chosen of Journeys who is very good at his job.

    With what should be a two-dice stunt there to regenerate willpower, and the benefits of my Manse background, I should even be fully resupplied with essence by the time we reach Barsoom. Just bring us in wherever is dramatically appropriate and near to what we're searching for, eh Horus?

    Yeah, that was pretty much my plan!

    Also, I think that's where I'm going to stop for now, just to let Perdue catch up. Don't want to get too far without him.

    And yes, I am basically suggesting taunting Malfeas while running away holding the prize. It is a plan that will quite possibly go very wrong, but it should draw the majority of the SI's strength away from Barsoom, and thus save millions of lives.

    Watson isn't quite as compassionate as Berger, but he still values that as a priority. Also, the idea of baiting a nigh-omnipotent god-machine sounds amusing to him.

    Maugan Ra i noticed you're spending enough other motes to let you activate your anima power for 5 motes rather than 10. Since i don't know how many motes you'll be able to get back in 6 hours if you're flying the ship i thought i'd point that out.

    Oh and Passionate Defender is fine with the reckless plan of taunting Malfeas.

    With the Rating 3 hearthstone, I can get back 6 additional motes an hour. I have more than enough motes to spare.

    And yes, I figured a sufficiently insane plan would appeal to the Valour 4 and 5 warrior types...

    Heh. Ah, technicalities, my old friends...

    And yay for setting up and indulging in character-building dialogue. I initially intended Watson to be a much more fiery type, but he's not settling into that mold in my head.

    Also, will probably get to work on developing Intimacies soon, as relating to my new team-mates. What form they take will be decided by this and other conversations.

    Unless our esteemed Storyteller has any objections, I've made some last-minute modifications to Erin Berger's crunch - it's occurred to me that in a campaign about a galactic war, maybe the Dawn Caste ought to, you know, be good at War.
    So, for the sake of a 4th Dot in War and an Excellency in the same, I've removed one Dot from Linguistics and Chaos-Repelling Pattern.
    ...
    Actually, come to think of it, what languages are available in this setting? And how relevant are Charms for protection from the Wyld?
