@DaEvilWithin

 

You're right, I must have mistyped. I've adjusted the Attack roll and TV accordingly

Also I think your base DX should be 4? Since everyone gets 1 for free.

Hacker was just put in to pad out the ability balance honestly. Mostly more of a plot progression thing I suppose?

 

I'll figure out the backstory thing tomorrow but honestly I just wanted to ham it up.

@DaEvilWithin She hasn't directly hurt top level DDA members, and often she sent a proxy/messenger for contact with them. None of them have seen her face directly. Will that work? I'm just trying to clear this out as painlessly as possible since I'm really busy this week.

Got busy, did some math. Threat value is now 15, but it's balanced out by the serious shortcomings of fucking dying in daylight.

We're talking instant death, pile of ash. It's a neat party trick that you can only do once.

How do I calculate the Defense (not Defense Roll)? The one in the sample character sheet.

Also I just realized it is said that if we apply Base Zero or Scaled Cost (and we do both), we should make the Knowledge cost half of what it normally would. Why? Actually, what does that mean, first thing first? If I understand that right, it means if I want my character has +4 Knowledge in manga (which would cost 8 points) then what I write down is +2 and calculate as if it costs only 4 points?

Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?

'No!' says the man in Washington, 'It belongs to the poor.'

'No!' says the man in the Vatican, 'It belongs to God.'

'No!' says the man in Moscow, 'It belongs to everyone.'

I've been busy packing and hating my life, so it'll be a bit before I get to your character @Misty.

 

@Fulmine

I think it means +4 in manga, but only cost as much as a +2. I don't want you to have more than one +4 if you can help it so I hope you don't use it on manga. :P

 

Defense stat is defense roll, I believe? I'm like tired af so I could be wrong but the others will hopefully correct me if so.

I see.

The weird thing is it says the costing half applies to Base Zero, too, so...hell, it also says that applies to Power Ceiling, too...

Btw, why is that? Somehting special about knowledge?

 

 


I don't want you to have more than one +4 if you can help it so I hope you don't use it on manga. :P

Eh, it's just an example. Actually my character has no +4 or -4. Do...do we have to have one? 

 

 


Defense stat is defense roll, I believe? I'm like tired af so I could be wrong but the others will hopefully correct me if so.

Is that so? Well, I Ctrl+F but can't find anything about Defense indeed. Only Defense Roll. But then the character sheet should have said that...They put it next to Health and Endurance so I was under the impression that it is a stat in the same vein.

Okay.

 

Oh, and btw, when we calculate TV, isn't counting the base DX of 1 redundant?

Also I don't know if the Ammunition Flaw and the Limited Use Weakness are overlapped...

It just means a basic person has a non-zero threat level?

Can you cite the descriptions?

...I completely forgot about that. Didn't pay normal human a thought given this setting.

 

So one of my character's techniques can only be used once every 4 day. I already have Limited Use in my Weakness list but now that I'm giving the technique Flaw I see that Ammunition is like exactly the same...not that they have anything to do with each other in terms of Roll and Stat since Limited Use is like a description only. So my question is do I have to put Ammunition in the Flaw list?

 

Also I can't find any satisfying picture for my character and I can't draw so...let just pretend she is Yano Erika.

Limited use just means you can use it X times per day and ammunition means there's something consumable that needs to be used.

 

It's the difference between having a special technique like Chidori that you can use twice a day before you cant use it anymore and having a bow with 10 arrows. You can grab more arrows but you cant use Chidori a third time without becoming a Mary Sue. 

 

I also think you're mixing Threat value and Scaled Cost together when you're saying Knowledge is half. Its that skills that can help in combat but don't directly give you half threat value, I don't recall anything about any abilities costing half in any circumstances. Also a +4 skill counts for 8 in the cost so you'd need 8 level one flaws to balance it out is the idea, so you can see why you don't want to stack up on them.

 

Try using other people's CS's as examples when in doubt that's what I did to help make mine.

That's what I think at first, since the name Ammunitionand the example of gun are pretty telling but then the OVA guide goes on talking about the exact number of time you can use your Ability given how many time you take the Flaw (Taken 1 5 times, taken 2 3 times, taken 3 1 time) which is just weird since that should depend on the weapon of choice. What if I use a revolver that has 6 bullets?

Ah no, it really says that under Knowledge in the Abilities List. I know about the TV thing.

I think the idea is that you're using it as a flaw not a descriptor. So if you use a weapon that only has energy for one shot you should be allowed to make it more powerful than a gun you have an entire bag of ammo for. If you have no problem having enough ammo for it at all times it's not really a flaw now is it? So the better flaw to take would be just the weapon flaw since that's concerning when you lose your weapon or it breaks rather than running out of bullets.
