1: Yes you can- we've had characters in the last RPG that had pets, including my own.

2: We'd rather he didn't- the island of Botana has always been rather primitive in its technology, and the use of guns could kinda break that feel we're going for. Your character is more than welcome to have a crossbow or longbow though.

3: Not too sure, though chances are if you stopped playing as him then he would have just disappeared.

What Drahcir said- though Fita, an NPC from the last game, was a smith from the Helgran Village, so it's likely that that village also specializes in smithing as well as warrior training.

Highly experimental, primitive, unwieldy, dangerous, prone to malfunction, and costly to use due to shortage of gunpowder and ammunition? Sure, just as long as its not a super reliable problem solver. It would fit well with a technical, engineer type character.

I think I'm gonna say no to that, just considering the flavor of the magic from the last game and its extreme rarity on Botana, with Kakhan being the only place where you can actually find magicians of any sort and fairly weak ones at that.

It's been sixty years since the last RPG- a few characters from the last are still around, but not many- I think it'd be fine to have Virgil back, though he'll likely be very old.

It's about sixty years in the future, and our Agori's lifespans are about the same as a human's. Vigil will probably be in his late eighties or nineties if he's still alive.

That's cool- your guy can have tools too, that's not OP- when we say overpowered we mean more in the magical side- last time we had several characters who could raise mountains and summon armies and stuff like that- that's more what we're worried about... regular fighters are okay.

Lots of people use the native tribal language Maori for the names of their characters. Mostly because that's what the first bionicle sets did. Just think of a word that you like and describes your character and look up a Maori translator on google.

Okay, so here are some things I need to check with you guys on:

Can he have magically enchanted saw blades (enchanted by a good friend of his dad) the begin spinning when he holds them.

Can the blades be made of special material that one can cut wood without it splintering, and stone without it cracking.

And then on his goggles, one is night vision, one is like binoculars, and one is like a magnifying glass. The other three I am still thinking up lol

Does the blade necessarily have to be enchanted? If there was a story reason for it that'd be fine, but otherwise there isn't much point in having a magical saw blade as opposed to a normal one- it just complicates things.

The saw being made out of a special material is fine- though we're not doing any weapon-degradation in this, so it's not really a necessary detail- but if you've some other reason for it then sure.

That sounds fine for the goggles- can't wait to see it.

Yeah, for the magic part I did that due to lack of better ideas, but I can think something up, glad you like the goggles! And for the blades, I wanted the special material so it helps him while inventing.

Depends what kind of villain: they can't be the main villain, as we have one of those already- it would also complicate things if you only designed an antagonist and not have an actual protagonist to play as-

-he could be a villainous protagonist though, if you wanted- a general immoral scumbag- that'd be an interesting dynamic with the others, though he'd have to be on their side (even if it were only an alliance of convenience) for the beginning at least, to ensure he gets off the island with them, but other than that it's fair game.

I'm interested to see what you come up with.

Interesting idea, Daniel.

We don't know for sure if Botana has a government in the way that we know it, but we do know that each village has an elder (with Krickarr http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/441701 currently being THE leader of Botana), and assumedly each of them have deputies in respective fields.

So potentially your character could be one of the village elders (Callum and Solias respectively have dibs on the Kahkan and Helgran elders), or one of their deputies/ partners (which would probably be preferable, but again, I have dibs on Krickarr's spouse)

If neither of those are to your liking, you could have a professor or a student from Van'shu if you like, or maybe an intellectual/lawyer/businessperson from Ha'shuan- the possibilities are endless!

Hopefully this helps you out man!

We're only concerned about a character when they are significantly more powerful than everyone else. Otherwise, we're not fussed about what abilities/gadgets they have.

Sure thing! You can change whatever you want all the way up until the actual roleplaying starts! Don't worry too much about scale, either- it'd be ideal if they were in scale obviously, but it's not a big requirement.

Kinda like the Shovel Knight character Plague Knight with small explosive Gourds? They wouldn't be very powerful of course, causing no more damage than other weapons. Also he has a bit of Magic but it's pretty much useless for fighting and he only uses it for making his strange stuff. He also has some Perfume Sprayer stuff, one sprays a weak toxic mist that makes others weaker, but it wears off after a bit and another that makes people a little drowsy. And then one that makes others slightly more open to suggestions. His weakness is that he is physically weak and his armour isn't the best either.

So my character is an inventor, who has a prototype gun, what if are characters sometimes worked together, and like, tries to makes exploding cannon balls, or perfumed cannon balls? If that's be okay with Werty

Well I've never actually been in an RPG before, so I have a lot of silly and obvious questions, but I'll let those answer themselves as I go. So here's my actual question(s):

1. Is there some sort of Zoological garden/regular zoo on Botana?
2. Where would that be located?
3. Could my RPC be the head caretaker there, sorta like a professor/Owen Grady?

1. We don't know- but there could be!
2. Anywhere, really- your safest bets could be Ha'shuan or Van'shu, but it could be in the Terengua or Helgran villages instead, if you wanted to change things up a little.

I had figured on putting it in the Ha'shuan village, because the people in the center of the island would be the most interested in a menagerie, since the outer villages see these sorts of things everyday. Also, there aren't many Characters from there yet, so why not? :P

Well in the last one, Blizzard (the original creator of Botana) said that it was about the size of the Rockies in North America- so about 3,000 miles lengthways.

Obviously that's quite a distance to travel from top to bottom, so feel free for your character to use some kind of transport (preferably Rahi, please don't invent cars) to speed up any lengthy travel.

With NPCs, we'll have to wait to meet them on the mainland. For Player Characters, they have a choice- either they won't be able to start until the party gets there, or they can ret-con their character into a Botana Agori and start with everyone else. If their character just comes from the Mainland and they currently live on Botana, then none of this applies to them.

It depends on what the builder wants to do with them- given that we'll be travelling out during the Roleplay, any static NPC is not going to be involved in the actual story for very long- they could always come back though, later on if you so desired. They could be as important or as trivial as you want them to be.

They don't even have to be in the RP if you don't want them to be- it's still good for world-building and lore purposes.

We do have a system of combat planned that we will divulge closer to the end of the month.

But essentially, the basic system will not ask you to kill or dismember your character- the only fail-state will be 'defeat'- it's up to you whether that defeat entails getting killed, dismembered, knocked out, or any other negative state- it could be as simple as weapon breakage, if you wanted.

We won't ask you at any point to kill off your character- that's your decision, to employ whenever you want to.

So I was wondering, if my guy rammed a spinning saw blade into a stars chest, would that send Tar blood (infection) all over?

So would my guy get infected really quickly? I sorta need to know f I should change his weapons

You don't need to change his weapons- it's up to you whether Pontel ever gets infected, under any circumstance, or not.

Oh okay. If he did get infected, like, full blown tar, would I lose control of his character?

I know this sounds like a dum question but what would happen if a Agori were to get infected?

From what I know, if you get infected, you slowly and painfully begin to mutate into a Tar, the further the process goes, the more you lose control, until you become a mindless Tar that attacks all in sight.

I'm gonna try to answer a whole bunch at once.

Quoting Lucas R.

1. Voyage length is yet to be decided, but likely won't be that long. This is an RPG about exploring new lands, not about being stuck a sea, after all.
2. We'll likely have a thread for material related to world building that will include important NPCs, but again, that idea is still being debated.
3. Feel free to play as both your PC and NPC, just try to focus on your PC (if you focused on the NPC, it wouldn't be a non-player character, would it? :P ). Remember that you won't be able to fight as your NPC.

Quoting Ivan Wanderer of the wasteland

1. The nice thing about Mocpages is that you can always scroll up to see other people's comments! We're leaving it up to you to decide whether to scroll up and read what's going on with everyone else, or to engage in the most recent discussion.

Quoting Toa Jaton

1. Feel free to post your character in Character Creation thread, regardless of whether or not you've built him. While building your PC is always encouraged, it is not mandatory.

Quoting Pontel Gunn

1. I'm not sure if I completely understand your question, but I'd say that it's up to the player whether they want to continue from the most recent discussion involving them, or jump to the most recent discussion for the party.
2. Ranged weapons/miscellaneous items inherit attack from your PC's ATK.

Well, we currently don't know exactly how much Tar we're going to be facing on the Mainland, so it might end up being superfluous. I'd imagine all you really need are some tall boots and a poncho, so maybe make some Iron shoes? (Plus, the advantage of accessing Tar-covered areas would be kinda negated by having to wait an hour for you to slowly waddle in and out in that heavy suit. :P)

Probably would make it less of a super suit, more of beefed up armor and thick clothing to protect him. The thick clothing would go under the outer armor.
And, Rakau with his legs can already explore out there, just isn't fully resistant.

Technically we should've, but that was a unique situation.

I dunno whether Aeon will be happy with me telling you this, but that wasn't meant to be the end of the fight- there was meant to be a Phase 2 that occurred once we ventured to Dragoon's Landing, but given the huge hiatus we had immediately afterwards, we felt it would be better to start off fresh again. So that's why we didn't level up after that fight.

But as a rule, yes- we level up after every boss/miniboss... that was more of an accident.

-and who knows? Maybe the Tyrantula'll be back- only time will tell... ;)

What if, say, you were playing someone else's character in their absence, and they were a 1950's Paragon archetype, and you don't want to modify their creation by adding a weakness?

You don't really need to worry about it.

The whole Mary Sue thing isn't really about power level or lack of weaknesses per se; it's more to do with making one's character the single most important character in the entire story, and deliberately trying to make them outshine everyone else.

It's not a big problem right now; everyone's been fine so far. Part of it being an RPG also, where literally everyone is a self-insert character, means there is a lot of leeway for that kind of thing. So long as we keep the amount of super powerful ancient artefacts being washed up to a minimum though, then it'll all be good.

Pikau is supposed to be able to summon animals to aid him via his vast knowledge of wildlife and Tamer training.(of course I haven't used this yet and since we're on the Mainland Pikau is in a totally alien ecosystem with unfamiliar creatures, rendering his sill useless, but I'm getting off topic. :P)

Would that, as it currently stands, qualify under Magic or Strength?

If you need a way to quantify it I'd use MAG, but you could also just run it as just a special talent of yours that doesn't need to be quantified.

Is what I did with Rengar okay? I just had the idea that he had another life, long before this one, and he will have flashbacks of what happened. He just eexperienced his first death.

So is he immortal?

Sounds okay. Maybe I'll have him learn some magic to attract the more unusual critters later one, but for now it will be part of his Strength. Thanks!

He isn't immortal, but, for reasons I haven't figured out yet, his unconscious mind survived, and eventually created a new body. This is why he doesn't know much about his current past. Maybe he is actually an elemental spirit, creating a body for itself a few hundred years after his death?

If he comes back to life whenever he dies, he’s essentially immortal. :P

Before I make a character, I was wondering about the state of Magic, as in, would it be possible for to have a mage? If not, that's 100% fine, but I thought I would at least ask. Secondly, what would a beast-whisperer, a sort of beast talker be like? Like, would they be allowed n junk?

Both are fine as long as they stay within the rules. (Aka no god like mages :P) we actually have one of both, although the owners of those charters are inactive for the most part. Feel free to ask any questions on how your character is coming along, how the rules work, etc etc. :D

Werty made a mistake, everyone does get a charge now (as I’ve said many times, and is in the doc linked in the Rules Update thread, Charge=Level/3 rounded up, so 7/3=2.33=3). Unfortunately, you can’t move points between Magic and Strength; that was exclusive to when we split the blanket Attack stat into physical and magical categories. If you want to, Oclavis and Kiepet can have different stats, though we encourage you to stick to using one character or the other per fight.

I was actually just talking about this with the other admins.

In short, we’re both happy with and flattered that you (or anyone else) wants to make a boss. However, we’d generally prefer that these do not interfere with ongoing story arcs: there will be a bit of interlude between Old Elysium and the Iron Citadel, during which we might be able to fit in a player-made boss or two.

We also might add a way for you to communicate directly with us (not discord, because as I understand it neither you nor a Daniel can access that) to better pitch your boss ideas.

Nothing is set in stone yet, so don’t quote me on any of this :P

Well, the boss would be an animal and not tar, so it shouldn't effect any story arcs. There is the private group on here I have with you and the other admins but in there Wertman told me to bring the conversation here. Although that was before the combat changes. So if you want I can move back to that group. I actually have explained the boss further in that group already. But I understand if it would be better not to have it :D

Well first, if you haven't already put them in this thread
( http://www.moc-pages.com/group_conversation.php?id=26314&topicid=107847 ), As well as upgrading him to level 10, I believe this would give him 3 x 10 points plus the original 5 you begin with. You can put these in either MAG, STR, or HP. You will also have one more stat called Charge, this is currently set at 4 for everybody, I don't 100% remember the rules for your charge Level, I'm sure somebody will explain it soon, but all you need to know right now is that it's 4.

I realize I could say this in OOC, but! It is technically a question. It’s about the Waiting Ones Sword, simply if it coyld be tweaked a little bit lore wise? Because actively having a medium sized dude tricking to fight hand to hand with a giants sword on his back seems a tad ood. So I was wonder if we coyld change it too like one of these two options:

The first is just that it only weighs a hecka ton when weilding it (explaining the need to use charge) and thus making it not hinder all of Pontel’s movement.

The second, is a cooler option, but it does stray further from the original thing so less likely. This would be the sword is either just a hilt, or a smaller blade, but only by expending like energy into it (stats wise would be charge) creating a larger, more like energy blade. Also fixing the problem of weight, and this would solve size as well.

This also kinda helps with the issue of “why not just always use the sword?” Lol.

*intense thinking* *snaps fingers* Your cart! Pontel has a cart, remember? Have him put the Waiting One's Sword on the cart, that way it doesn't hinder his movement but can still be so heavy that it takes CHARGE to use. This could also introduce an extra dynamic during combat where Pontel has to juggle fighting with getting back to his cart and navigating it through the battlefield so he can get close enough to use the weapon without fainting from exhaustion trying to carry it anywhere. Just an idea, but I think it'd be cool.

That has crossed my mind, the only thing is Pontel has explosives in his cart, and he typically keeps it far out of the fight. The problem is scaling, because ileven for the giant that was a hefty sword, so for Pontel it technically should be double to tripppe his hight. (So completely impossible to use due to it’s unwieldiness.)

So technically that could work. It just may not seem logical to run away, grab a sword, come back, smack da bad boi, run back, put the sword away, and then come back. xP Or I can just continue defying reality and saying he has it on his back lol

Fun fact: your average zweihander only comes in at about 6 kilos, and the largest histroically recorded sword, at 2.25 meters in length, was only about 10 kilos.

TBH, you could just always use the sword; normal CHG use is just like a stronger attack, taking more effort from the user. For the Waiting One's Sword, it just makes that stronger attack, well, stronger. I don't see any reason to change it.

I guess I was over estimating it’s size/weight. I was using Werty’s MOC of it, but I realize that wouldn’t be perfectly accurate.

I love the sword as a relic though, one of/if not the best one we have found yet. (Am I biased at all? Nooooo.)

I'd consider the use of Charge-based abilities to be separate from your actual attack; it hasn't really come up since most abilities have been modifiers of the base attack, whereas this is the first with a unique combative effect. You can still attack in addition to using the bow; you'ree attack does its base damage, and then the bolt sets them on fire (or vice versa, or however you choose to write it).

So overall, yes, but technically no.
