Destiny: Discord's Taint

Post  LoganAura on Thu Sep 06, 2012 1:44 pm

Inspired by Pony POV
[i]On the day that Discord returned, you were effected to the very core of your self, whether by being told that truth would only harm, that laughter which you held dear only served to harm you, or being forced to choose between two loyalties you hold dear.

Lv 4: "When all the truth does is make your heart ache Sometimes a lie is easier to take" A quote from an honest pony's experience with Discord. You know the negative portion of an aspect you hold dear. Spiteful laughter, Bitter and harmful Truth, how unnatural kindness is, the torn loyalties, the loneliness that hinders the magic of friendship, and how being generous to others can leave you with nothing. However, you have learned from overcoming the taint what exactly that held element is.. You can use your Element power without spending a magic point 2/session.

Lv 7: "A weighty choice is yours to make. The right selection or a big mistake." You know... sometimes you don't like the elements of harmony. The effect Discord had on you weighs on your mind heavily and sometimes you relapse into the way you were then. Gain a second "Element" power related to the opposite of your element of Harmony. At the begining of the session, pick either Harmony or Dischord. For that session, you may only use the element power from that side.

Deceit: Liarjack/Applefib- Tell a pony anything that is untrue. That pony believes it is true undoubtedly for 24 hours.
Anger: Angry Pie/Bitter Berry- Fly into a rage and head straight for whatever your current goal is, ignoring any requests or attempts to stop you for 3 in game minutes.
Cruelty: Fluttercruel/Brutalscotch- Roll a check for your cutie mark skill. The DM rolls a D20 with a +13 bonus), if you beat the DC, any pony within sight for one in game day is considered "Intimidated" and will do whatever you say that doesn't endanger their life or their allies lives.
Greed: Greedity/MElusive- Take one item that you can see without any alarms sounding, or ponies noticing. This item does not nessacarily need to be carryable. For example, stealing a massive diamond from a vault, or a massive gold statue to carry around and drop on enemies.
Disloyalty: Traitor Dash/Rainbow Ditch- You can break one pony's loyalty to a cause, such as a guard of Celestia leaving their post, for 24 hours. The pony can roll a d20 and if they roll higher than a 17, they remain loyal.
Loneliness: Twilight Tragedy/Dusk Blight- ?

Lv 10: "With friends like you, who needs... enemies." Your taint, and your acceptance of it, seems to branch into some of your allies too. All of your allies are treated as though they have the lv 7 ability of this Destiny- including the choice between elements. You also gain one of the following items.

Chocolate milk of glass. Item. A delicious way to cause a distraction. take 5 seconds to drink the glass, throw it behind you, a cloud of dust and an explosion distracts all non-allies for 20 seconds. Non-combat usable,

Propeller beanie item: Who says that you need wings to fly! Roll 1d20. if 1-5 fly with poor manverability, 6-10 fly with average, 11-15 fly with great. if 16-20 fly with great and give one beanie to any ally with average manuverability.

(More items to be developed.)

As it stands, this seems rather overpowered. Many Magic utilities don't have any other restrictions on their use other than that they cost a Magic Point - no preparation time, no daily use limits, no cooldown time, nothing. An Element of Generosity could add +15 to every skill check in the session at no cost. An Element of Magic could use almost any utility talent at any time. An Element of Laughter...wow. And for 4 in-game days? Even if the user doesn't gain any Magic Points next session, there's an awful lot you could accomplish in 4 days (and their allies still regain MP as normal, after all).

Well, the Lv 10 wasn't the most serious one. I couldn't think of anything else. ANy ideas?

Giving your allies another Destiny ability seems a bit extreme to me...

Well right now we have Resurrecting a dead party member and becoming IMMORTAL from the healer destiny... I just wanted one destiny for someone, like me, who wants to help his allies more than himself with the destiny :/
