    Default Suikoden Rewrite [5E]

    [Insert a long explanation of Suikoden series]

    Unless otherwise stated, every original rule will still apply.

    -Rune Casting: The biggest change. Casting spells will remain mechanically similar, with a lot of tweaks. Nine spell level are reduced to 4. Classes no longer determine what spells you can cast, but they do determine your slots. Runes that you have equipped will grant you spells. When you equip a rune you pick 3+[Attribute] Modifier spells that you can cast through that rune. You also get 3 cantrips. Casting attribute is based on the rune in question, not your character's class. So, Water rune is based on Wisdom, while Fire rune is based on Intelligence.
    -Runes:
    Magic runes are divided in Fire, Water, Lightning, Earth, Wind, Sunlight(Sun), Shield(Holy), Darkness(Dark) and Star. This are 9 basic magic rune types, corresponding to 9 damage types.
    Weapon runes exist for each weapon type. Most of this runes allow you to modify your attack by expending a spell slot. This modifications go up to level 3. Weapon runes do not have cantrips.
    Sword Magic correspond to 9 basic magic rune types. They are similar to weapon runes, expending spells slots to apply modifications (changing damage type). They can also be used to grant resistance to damage type.
    Passive runes are change to rune shards, that can be used to modify weapons.
    -Proficiency: Rune proficiency is pretty much the same as any other proficiency. Any check you make with a particular rune will add your proficiency bonus if you are proficient with that rune.



    Spoiler: Affinity
    Show
    Your affinity determines how much damage you deal and receive from particular attacks. This functions similar to Suikoden 5, but the numbers are a little different.
    Fire, Water, Earth, Wind, Lightning, Sun, Star, Holy and Dark are magical affinities.
    Slash, Thrust, Punch and Shoot are physical affinities.

    Affinity Damage Inflicted Damage Received
    SS +80% -120%
    S +60% -90%
    A +40% -60%
    B +20% -30%
    C +0% +0%
    D -20% +30%
    E -40% +60%



    Spoiler: Weapons
    Show
    Weapons function a little differently in world of Suikoden. Instead of exchanging your weapon for a better one you only wield one weapon. This weapon can be upgraded by the blacksmith by embedding various rune shards in it. Your weapon starts at level 6. When your character reaches 2nd level and every two level after that your weapon gets +1 level. Your weapon's level determines the number of customization slots your weapon has. Weapon can not hold multiple copies of the same shard.

    Spoiler: Movement and Range
    Show
    Movement is a little different then standard D&D movement. Instead of squares, Suikoden uses hexes, similar to Suikoden III. Standard movement is 6, but armor can reduce this. Standard movement range for close combat weapon is 1, 3 for thrown weapons and 5 for ranged weapons. Spells (and other effects) that have an area of effect affect the target and all adjacent hexes for small area of effect. Large area of effect affects target and everything two hexes away.

    Spoiler: A note about Saves
    Show
    Forget what you know about 5E saves, in Suikoden each of the 6 saves is equally important. Sure, Fire and Lightning rune attacks mostly target Dex, but low Int will make you a perfect target for Star rune and you don't want to face a Sun wielder if you have low Wisdom.

    Spoiler: Sword of Magic Runes
    Show
    All Sword of Magic Runes function the same, except that they use different elemental type. When you have a Sword of Magic rune equipped you have access to the following features:
    When performing a weapon attack you can expend one 1st level slot. If you do you your attack counts as both physical and [Elemental] and it uses your better affinity and target's lower affinity.
    When being attacked by [Elemental] attack you can expend one 2nd level slot as a reaction. If you do you gain 50% resistance against [Elemental] until the end of your next turn.
    When performing a weapon attack you can expand one 3rd level slot. If you do your attack counts as both physical and [Elemental] and it uses your better affinity and target's lower affinity. You also get an additional swing.

    Show
    Primary Attribute:
    Intelligence-Lightning, Fire, Star
    Wisdom-Earth, Water, Darkness
    Charisma-Holy, Wind, Sun
    As long as you have a magic rune equipped you can perform utility magic. Simple magical tricks can be performed freely, but complicated works of magic require successful check. Either way, the magic you are trying to perform must be based on the rune you have equipped. Although limited, Sword of Magic runes can also perform utility magic. Creative use of utility magic is encouraged.

    Spoiler: Ailments
    Show
    Ailments function a little differently in this game. There are 6 ailments, each corresponding to one of the six abilities. Each ailment comes in variety of effects, but each creature can only suffer from one version of each ailment. One type of wound can deal damage over time, while another can impose disadvantage, but a creature can only suffer the effect of one or the other, never both. At the start of every turn a creature makes a save against every ailment they are suffering from. On a successful save ailment is cured.

    Me too.
    I think we finally have a system that can support Suikoden the way it deserves.

    I made the affinity table (how does it look?), some base class stat (but I'm sure that's gonna take some re-balancing) and I started working on the runes. Any comments or suggestions?
