Quick update for ye:

# of Species
(final at game creation): is now 40, not 38 (more will come later)

Classes: There are 9 classes available, some restricted by species - Droids cannot be force-users for example. (General Greivous was a cyborg before anyone mentions him!)

Elite Classes: There are 8 elite classes available, though you need to work up to these.

Statistics: There are 6 statistics, 3 Physical and 3 mental. They range from 1 to 5, 5 being heighest.

Skills: There are many skills to choose from, ranging in ability from 0 to 5. 0 is untrained, 5 is a master in that skill.

Talents, Force Powers and Upgrades: Talents are "knacks" or special abilites that people know and are open to all classes (Droids have limited access to Talents however and Force Users will have less because they need to spend points on Force Powers as well.) Force Powers are what you expect, Powers accessable only to those with Force Sensitivity. Lastly Upgrades are Droid-only special abilities, though these may be open to Cyborgs in later rules expansions (Cyborgs are not available at start of play)

Character Creation: is based on a point-based distribution, you "choose" how you want your character to be.

More to follow!

Are you using a d20 system? What's the relation between stats & skills (direct or indirect modifier etc)? Or am I too curious now? :p

I don't mind curiousity Sharasvar!

As it happens, no I'm not using the d20 system. Although I'm very familiar with it (and a big fan I might add) I've decided to go for a similar, but streamlined system.

I've taken as much from the SW:SE stuff as I can without horribly plagerizing it, but have taken a lot out that would slow a forum rp.

I don't want to give away too much until it is completelted but it runs on a very similar system to SW:SE at its core, so that players who know that system will find it familiar but players new to it won't find it too confusing.

Skills are directly connected to statistics, and in the same way as SW:SE you add your skill rating to your statistic. Once you have that number you roll a die and add it all up. If that is equal or higher than the Target Number (TN) assigned by the GM, your character succeeds in his or her task.

Of course there are other modifiers, both situational and player-controlled, but that is the game mechanic at its core.

EDIT:

For example, the Rodian Bounty Hunter Nikrit is attempting to blast an Imperial Trooper chasing him through the streets of Coruscant. As the trooper comes around the corner he is utterly exposed with no cover the hide behind. Unfortunately for the tropper Nikrit is waiting for him.

The GM states the TN to hit the trooper is 10, so this is what Nikrit needs to get to hit him.

Nikrit has a score of 3 (out of 5) in the Blaster skill. That skill is linked to the DEX (dexterity) Statistic, and Nikrit has 3 DEX.

Adding those points together gives Nikrit a score of 6.

Nikrit needs to roll a 4 or more (6+4 to reach TN of 10) to hit the Trooper with his Blaster, if he rolls 3, 2, or 1 it will miss.


This is a very simple example, there are usually modifiers such as cover, abilites etc which can alter your score before you roll the dice.

Oh and the system uses d10 rather than d20.

Isn't that too much power to the stats? If you compare it with a d20 system for example. There, if you have a +4 mod through a stat that's already quite high, while a skill rank of 10 is quite normal. Just a thought Smile

PostSubject: Re: Dynamic Roleplay   Dynamic Roleplay - Page 2 EmptyFri Jan 15, 2010 7:19 am

If it was in relation to the d20 system, yes very much so.

However, because statistics are out of 5 and not 18-20 (as with the d20 system) then each point in a statistic covers more of a range of that ability (1 point in this system is roughly equal to 5 points when compared to the d20 system) and so are therefore much slower to increase via character progression and xp.

There is a maximum limit that stats can start at when creating your character at level 1, though I'll cover details like this later.

To give you a rough idea of what the statistic ranges represent:

1 = Below average, limited.
2 = Galactic average. Most npcs are at this level.
3 = Above Galactic average. Most professionals are at this level.
4 = Elite. Highest most non-boss npcs are likely to reach, this level represents people who excell in a certain area and likely have a reputation due to that fact. Bounty Hunters hired for their dogged tenacity, Sith for their control of the Force, Medics for their emergency battlefield skills.
5 = Master. Characters with this score are rare, they represent the best of their species. Internationally recognized athletes, master assassins, ace pilots, legendary sith lords, etc.

Ofc all of this is still in progress and subject to change until finalized, so any suggestions are more than welcome (such as yours Sharasvar!), for example I have been considering raising the skill rank limit to 10 rather than 5 so they are, as you suggested, different from the statistics; I'm running a few mathimatical tests with it now to see how it pans out.

The above statistical info will most likely remain however because one of the things I always thought was a bit unnecessary with the d20 system was the way they gave you a statistic score which generated a "modifier" to go with it, then the modifier was heavily used and the stats score itself barely saw the light of day. Rather than have a stat that went up to 20 and gave a modifier of +5, it seems more sensible to me to have stats that go up to 5.

I own Vampire:The Masquerade, Werewolf: The Apocalypse, Demon: The Fallen, Hunter: The Reckoning, Changeling: The Dreaming, Wraith: The Oblivion, and all the "Dark Ages" versions, so I am in no way influenced by White Wolf Studios Razz

PostSubject: Re: Dynamic Roleplay   Dynamic Roleplay - Page 2 EmptySat Jan 16, 2010 6:08 am

I'll give a quick rundown of my modified d20 SAGA edition Wink
You can freely use ideas for abilities, skills, feats, lightsaber forms, force powers, techniques and what not...


SYSTEM

To decide whether an action fails or succeeds, you just roll a d20, add the ability, skill and misc modifiers and compare to either a number set by the game master (a.k.a. Difficulty Class or DC) or an opposed roll of another character or NPC.

Out of combat (or a non-combat encounter) your character can take any action within reasonable limits. During encounters, there are six types of actions: free, swift, immediate, move, standard and full-round actions.

Free actions are actions which can be taken at any time, both in and out a players' turn, to a reasonable degree. E.g. speech.

Swift actions take little time. Each character can normally take one swift action on its turn.

An immediate action is a swift action taken out of turn. Each character can take normally one immediate action per round.

Move actions take more time and effort than swift actions but less than standard actions. A move action can be downgraded to a swift action if needed (granting a character two swift/immediate actions per turn). Each character can take normally one move action per turn.

Standard actions take more time and effort than move actions. A standard action can be downgraded to a move or swift action (granting a character two move actions or swift actions per turn). Each character can take normally one standard action per turn.

Full-round actions are actions which take the entire round to complete, effectively consuming one standard, move, and swift action.


Advantage and disadvantage

Your character can gain contextual bonuses and penalties on his skill checks, depending on roleplaying and environmental variables. When your character has the high ground, cover, concealment, when he/she surprises an enemy, etc, you can claim Advantage. If the GM accepts your claim your character gains a +3 bonus on the skill check. Conversely, if your character is in a bad situation to accomplish a task, the GM can claim Disadvantage for your character, applying a -3 penalty on the skill check.


Stamina, wounds and death

My campaign was based on heroic player characters As such they were hard, but not impossible to kill. Each character has a number of hit points equal to 50 + 5x PHY, representing stamina and the ability to mitigate and endure minor and light wounds. As long as your character's stamina remains at 1 or more hit points, he/she does not suffer ill effects and hit points are replenished in full after a 5 minutes rest.

However, once a character reaches 0 hit points, he/she is wounded. A character can never have less than 0 hit points. Characters at 0 hit points have to make a Fortitude check vs. DC 20 or fall unconscious. If they fall unconscious, they are considered helpless and can be killed. If they do not fall conscious, they are heavily wounded, taking a -5 penalty on all checks. If they get hit again, they have to reroll their Fortitude check, until they survive the encounter or pass out. (This made death only possible in the case of a TPK, total party kill; for other campaigns I'm much more severe Twisted Evil )
If you are wounded and maintained consciousness, you regain your stamina after 1d4 days of recovery. If you are wounded and lost your consciousness, you regain your stamina only after 2d4 days of recovery.

Successful Medicine checks hasten the healing process. A character with Medicine as a minor skill can apply first aid, bringing an unconscious character back to consciousness with a DC 15 Medicine check (full-round action) and the use of a medpack (used up after one go) or a medical kit. The character remains at 0 hit points and continues to take a -5 penalty on all checks, however.
A character with Medicine as a medium skill can patch up a wounded character with a DC 15 Medicine check (5 minutes) and the use of a medical kit. The character remains at 0 hit points but does not take a -5 penalty on all checks, unless he/she is hit again.
A character with Medicine as a major skill can reduce the natural recovery time when someone is wounded to one day, using a surgical kit or kolto/bacta treatment.


SPECIES

I only had the more or less humanoid species for my campaign, so we'll skip this.


ABILITIES

Your character has six abilities: Agility, Awareness, Dexterity, Intelligence, Personality, and Physique. You may divide six points over these scores. You can put a maximum of 3 in one ability and a minimum of -1, granting you a point to invest in another ability.

LIGHTSABER FORMS

If you have Lightsabers as a minor skill, you know Form I (Shii-Cho). If you have Lightsabers a an average skill, you know Form I and two other Forms of your choice. If you have Lightsabers as a major skill, you know Form I and four other Forms of your choice. Switching from one Form to another is a swift action.

Form I Shii-Cho (PHY)
Younglings are taught Shii-Cho first because of its simplicity and versatility. Sometimes called the ideal form, Form I uses horizontal side-swipes and parries made with the blade of the lightsaber held upright to push the point of an enemy's blade away during a side-to-side attack. If the attack is a downward slash aimed at the head, Form I simply reverses the motion, with a horizontally-held lightsaber being moved up and down to deflect a blow. All the basic ideals of attack, parry, target zones, and practice drills were created with the Form I style. When using Form I, your Lightsaber checks are modified by your Physique score. You can use lightsaber checks to block melee weapons and lightsabers and deflect energy bolts from pistols and rifles.

Form II Makashi (DEX)
Prerequisite: Form I
After Form I's proliferation as a saber combat technique, Form II came about as a means of lightsaber-to-lightsaber combat. It is described as being very elegant, powerful, and requiring extreme precision, allowing the user to attack and defend with minimal effort, while his/her opponent tires himself/herself out. The form relies on parries, thrusts, and small, precise cuts—as opposed to the blocking and slashing of the other forms. The blade manipulation required is very refined and requires much focus, but the results are extremely potent. As ranged weapons such as blasters come into play, the advantages of this form of lightsaber combat become less useful, but it is still potent against multiple opponents. When using Form II, your Lightsaber checks are modified by your Dexterity score. You gain a +3 bonus on lightsaber checks to attack and to block melee weapons and lightsabers. However, you cannot deflect energy bolts from pistols and rifles.

Form III Soresu (AGI)
Prerequisite: Form I
Form III, the most defensive of all of the forms, unlike Form II combat, was developed to counteract the advancing blaster technology throughout the galaxy. Soresu utilizes motions occurring very close to the body to achieve near-total protection, efficiently expending as little energy as possible to execute these moves. It stressed quick reflexes and fast positional transition, in order to overcome the rapidity with which a blaster could be fired. This technique exposes as few target zones on the body as possible, making a well-trained practitioner nearly impenetrable. However, Soresu's same dedication to defense and minimal bodily exposure also decreases the lightsaber's threat range. When using Form III, your Lightsaber checks are modified by your Agility score. You suffer a -3 penalty on lightsaber checks to attack, but you gain a +3 bonus on checks to block and deflect melee and ranged attacks.

Form IV Ataru (AGI)
Prerequisite: Form I, Acrobatics as a minor skill
The master practitioners of Form IV make extensive use of acrobatic maneuvers often thought physically impossible without the aid of the Force. It is much like the more obscure form known as Sokan, with which Ataru has cross-fertilized. It emphasized acrobatic strength and power in wielding the blade, attributes which were frowned upon by many traditional Jedi Knights and Masters. Ataru relies on wide slashes, acrobatic proficiency and an open space for the Jedi to fight. One basis for the acrobatic nature of Ataru is that lightsabers can damage with brushing, light strokes, rather than hard chopping motions. Due to its aggressive nature, it is an effective form to use against single enemies but leaves the user open to attacks from multiple opponents. Ataru is better suited to dueling than open warfare. When using Form IV, your Lightsaber checks are modified by your Agility score. You gain a +3 bonus when attacking, blocking and deflecting a single, designated opponent, but you then suffer a -3 penalty when attacking, blocking and deflecting other opponents.

Form V Shien – Djem So (AGI)
Prerequisite: Form III and IV
Form V was developed by a group of Jedi Masters who felt that Form III was too passive, while Form IV was not powerful enough. It addressed the shortcomings of both forms, in which a Jedi Master may have proved to be undefeatable but could not overcome the enemy. Among the many unique aspects of Form V was the development of techniques in which the lightsaber was used to deliberately deflect a blaster bolt directly back at the firer. When using Form V, your Lightsaber checks are modified by your Agility score. You can block and deflect attacks of your opponents. Once per round, after succesful deflection, you can either (1) redirect a blaster bolt to your foe, using your deflection check; or (2) make a counterattack after you successfully blocked an attack.

Form VI Niman (AWA)
Prerequisite: Form I, II, III
The basic philosophy of Niman is "the leaf swept in the winds of the Force". One who uses this form attains a mindset of one who is not perturbed by his or her surroundings, but rides the currents of the surrounding chaos, being harmonious and balanced within. Form VI attempts to balance all elements of lightsaber combat, combining the Forms that came before into a less intensely demanding combat style. The result is that the users' skill in each individual areas of lightsaber combat is only moderate, making Form VI well-suited for diplomats and consulars, as they can spend their time training in the areas of politics, negotiation and Force mastery instead of combat training. Niman is the stepping stone to the dual lightsaber form, known as Jar'Kai; no one who has successfully mastered Jar'Kai has done so without first mastering Niman. When using Form VI, your lightsaber checks are modified by your Awareness score. You can block and deflect attacks and you can always take 10 on all your lightsaber checks.

Form VII Juyo (PHY)
Prerequisite: Form I, II, III, IV, V
The most challenging and demanding of all forms, Form VII requires intense focus, high levels of skill, and mastery of other forms. Juyo is a powerful but precarious form that sacrifices defense in return for greater dexterity and strength of attack. When using Form VII, your lightsaber checks are modified by your Physique score. You gain a +3 bonus on Lightsaber checks to attack, while suffering a -3 penalty on deflecting or blocking attempts. In addition, you may add your physique score to your damage rolls.

Sokan (AGI)
Prerequisite: Form IV, acrobatics as a major skill
The original form of Sokan consisted of tactics for extraordinary feats of evasion and mobility, intended to place the enemy in a poor location or to enhance one's own position. It was combined with the kinetic motions of Form IV combat. Sokan involves swift strokes of the lightsaber aimed towards the opponent's vital areas in addition to quick tumbles and movements. Sokan is modified by your Agility score. You can use Acrobatics instead of Lightsabers to attack, and instead of Reflexes to evade melee and ranged attacks.

Jar'Kai (AGI)
Prerequisite: Form VI
The dual saber style of Jar'Kai permits a Jedi to fight efficiently with two lightsabers, one in each hand – or one double-bladed lightsaber. One of the blades in the wielder's hands is used for attacking while the other one is used for defending, such as parrying, or for more offensive power. Jar'Kai is modified by your Agility score. When attacking, blocking or deflecting, you always roll two dice, taking the best result.

Saber throw (DEX)
You can use your lightsaber as a ranged weapon (close range). You make a Lightsaber check modified by your dexterity to determine if you hit your target.

Tràkata (PER)
Prerequisite: Form I, Guile as major skill, Quick Draw feat
Tràkata takes advantage of a lightsaber blade's ability to be turned on and off, a unique quality in a melee weapon. Quickly shutting off then re-igniting the blade could cause confusion in one's opponents, allowing for diversionary feints in combat. In addition this form frees one's blade hand, allowing greater control of some force powers. Philosophically, Tràkata involves practical combat and deception, rather than single minded determination or endless patience.
Tràkata is modified by your Personality score. Once per round, as a standard action, you can make a Guile check instead of a Lightsaber check when activating your lightsaber and attacking with it (not deflecting or blocking). In addition, you gain a +3 bonus on the attack roll.

Thanks Sharasvar!

I might well grab / modify some of that (especially the skills, GREAT idea, will speed up the character creation process too), but I'll ask you specifically every time I do intend to use any of the stuff above when writing my rules.

I will, of course, also point out and credit your rules if there are any I use without altering.

Cheers for taking the time to reply to this, its really helpful stuff Smile

I've quite enjoyed Dynamic roleplay when played (Pen, Paper, Dice) and well to see it incorporated elsewhere would be great!

If it ever occurs, count me in!

I'll be honest in saying I've put this on hold, at least for the time being until I complete Dark Secrets. Its certainly not forgotten about and it'll be something I'll be putting a lot of time into once I've finished some other RP's.

There is a high likelihood that I will simply be using a modified version of the rules Sharsvar linked up here (with his permission of course) as so much of it is so similar to what I was planning to do anyway, it seems a little pointless just to re-do it all.

So yeah, this is "on my scope"

Now that DS is turned into a short story for the purposes of the Finale and is essentially "as good as finished" (all bar the reading) - I'm back on board with this.

13.08.10 Update:

Species: I know one of the things we've been waiting for for AGES with TOR is a difinitive list of what species we can play so I thought I'd make it the first thing I'd start revealing for the Dynamic RP ruleset.

* There are a total of 45 Playable Races in Dynamic RP (more may be added later)
* You can play all the races revealed so far in TOR (Humans (included in here are the base-line near humans such as Mandalorians, Hapan etc), Rattataki, Twi'lek, Chiss, Sith, Zabrak, Mirialan & Miraluka).
* The are no race/class/faction restrictions (you can play a Twi'lek Sith Warrior or a Rattataki Jedi Knight**)

Here are a the list of the first 20 (random selection from the 45, non-aphabetical)

Togruta, Droid, Trandoshan, Kel Dor, Jawa, Falleen, Ubese, Bith, Cathar, Wookie, Arkanian, Gamorrean, Nautolan, Snivvian, Toydarian, Cerean, Selkath, Ithorian, Rodian, Bothan.

Classes:

* All 8 classes from TOR are playable (Bounty Hunter, Trooper, Sith Warrior, Smuggler, Imprial Agent, Jedi Consular, Sith Inquisitor and Jedi Consular.)
* A 9th class 'Noble' has been added to the mix

Rule System:

* Will be using the rules system Sharasvar provided, with some slight altertions and presented in an easily remembered visual format.

Chat System:

* Dynamic RP will be available in both Chat-RP and Forum-RP formats.
* More on this soon.




** Though there are technically no class restrictions, for really unusual and rare cases (such as a Pureblood Sith who has redeemed and become a Jedi, or a Chiss Agent who now works as a Trooper for example), really exceptional reasoning at the character creation period needs to be given.
The GM reserves the right to disallow any character they feel may be unbalanced compared to the other players or could cause problems in an RP due to a very unusual species/class combo.

As I said in the meeting I don't really see the point of this. To me we already have enough tools. I'm not worrying I'm being careful.
lol!

The Dynamic Roleplay is designed for pre-game launch roleplaying sessions which are designed to allow a much richer level of immersion into the star-wars universe whilst also utterly removing the chance of god-modding (intentional or accidental) through moderated rules and documented dice rolls.

Currently our RP relies entirely upon people being reasonable about what their character can and can't do which is fine for seasoned roleplayers, but difficult to get to grips with when you're first starting out.

Everyone wants their Imperial Agent to be able to crack that security hack or their Sith Warrior to plow through hordes of Republic soldiers but, in the books, the films and even TOR there are times where this simply wont happen.

Qui-Gon was an excellent duelist but Darth Maul still cut him down.
Your character could get wiped in a raid in-game at a really annoying point.

These examples might seem annoying on the outside, but they're important and go a long way to developing how things pan out.

If you're doing the roleplay we currently do, it relies on your sometimes working with your character and not always succeeding, sometimes even really screwing up badly. For someone who's been roleplaying for years this is almost intuitive, but for someone new to it all, how likely are they going to want their badass Sith Warrior to fall on his arris? Not likely, thats what.

The inclusion of a rule system allows for the element of chance to be added in, just as it will be when TOR itself is released. Sure you can have people that are better that others at certain tasks, and thats exactly where this system shines. If something bad happens to your character its never personal, its just the luck of the dice. The same thing goes for good things too!

I personally feel that the inclusion of a rule-set as an option will enhance our Roleplaying here at EPOCH. We have several types of players here, some who like to write stories and RP over the foums for example, but we also have poeople who prefer to RP "in-game" using the rules provided as a backdrop to their options.

We like to try to cater for all our Agents, and I for one am looking forward to playing this as much as running some games!

I'm totally all for this as being someone who doesn't have too much time on their hands to take part in a well structured Play-by-post, or run one for that matter! So yeah I think a gaming session would actually suit me better in all fairness. As I'm more of an improviser I reckon that on the spot RP just sits better with me.

Bring it on!
