Alright like it that at lest one of them got in... Now I'm thinking... Monster Hunter... That should be on this list. Like they'd know of most if not all of the others... And start off with the traits: Talented, Dangerous, and Dangerously Talented... In place of combat talents other then maybe one that does a good deal of damage to the other Joke Templates. Cause I plan to make such a template for my own character in my game...

Well, so far, these are all racial templates. While I like the idea of a monster-hunter, I don't quite see how it would fit in with the others, unless... unless...

Actually, I think I can make this work! Gimme a few hours to throw something together... Very Happy

While I do like it you talked on idea and seem to know how to make it work... It's totally rude of you to skip commenting on Rumsas' comment.

Oh yeah, you should credit Xel too since we were both talking over the ideas. I'm just the one who posted them.

Ah, crap. I'd just written up a post about accidentally not seeing Ramsus's comment (sorry, Ramsus), then went into an in-depth analysis of your concerns and what I'd do to fix the issues, but I lost all the text. *sigh*

Short version: I'm fixing the template now. Shouldn't take too long.

EDIT: And not only is the Half-Cloud template now fixed, but the Monster Slayer template has been added too!

Love the Monster Slayer... Just love it so much. And it's going to be so very helpful in my "Jokers Campain" thing.

For side-splitting hilarity read the following, keeping in mind the filly/colt template.

Weirdness Sensor
A monster slayer is constantly aware of the presence, exact location, and precise species of any racially-templated creature within a 30-foot radius (centered on the monster slayer).

Keep in mind that filly/colt wouldn't count as a racial template. Heck, Monster Slayer only barely qualifies as one because of the flavor in He Who Fights Monsters.

But you do raise a good point. If we don't want "child slayers" running around, then I should come up with a way to differentiate between racial and non-racial templates...

(Also: I shouldn't be working on a filly/colt template, should I? There's already something in that vein, after all.)

I wasn't really thinking so much about the mechanics, just the roleplaying aspects of that. Just.....intensely creepy.

It would certainly explain the common person's reaction to monster slayers in shows/movies though. *snicker*

And no, I don't believe you should, since yeah....someone else already did that.

So Jason. Would a Slenderpony-esque template be in the works?
(If not could you because that'd be pretty rad.)

Hmm... Well, Slenderpony strikes me as an individual, unique... thingie, as opposed to a species or something that one could become, but... hm... I could certainly make a horrifying-aberration-type template along those lines. Heck, if I'm vague enough in flavoring it and/or do branching abilities, I could probably kill two birds with one stone and bundle in some Lovecraftian flavor... Gee, I'll definitely be giving this some thought, but I can already see it getting in fairly soon.

I already did a slenderpony analogue over in the monsters section. Called The Nameless.

Noticed a flaw with Possession. It doesn't say what happens with the Possessor. As written they can still be attacked. I doubt this was the intent and it's not very fair (or logical). It should either say something about them not being able to be attacked until the save ends the effect or they take a point or two of damage whenever their possessed target does if you want to go that route.

I think we should ignore the half-elephant in the room. Razz Or at least give it super-stealth powers.

Just checked out the new stuff (since Half-Cloud). Gotta say I really love your alternate's for Fireborn and might actually suggest them to be official options, at the very least for when Stairc does the making shinyness of my optional racial rules.

I realize an oversight with both Werewolves... They should have a Free combat talent in both forms that'd allow them to shift as a free action. But after use it can't be used again until after one turn in the new from. It's how I'm going to work them, and I figure they should always be able to do such a thing. and they need to chooise their Base From only moves that they'll always trade with after shifting. Or have different shifting types or something...

Good point. Shapeshifting during combat has been clarified in the Combat Talents section for both templates.

Has anything been done with Story of the Blanks? I'd love to see a Sunny Town Citizen template. (aka walking talking zalgo vectors, made playable)

Or having a Zombie-Race template could be interesting too.

Since they're all blank flanks, I think one of the drawbacks is that they can only be ponies, but don't have a cutie mark and can only get training in two skills. I'm drawing a blank (olololo) on the benefits, though.

I'm guessing about 2/3rds normal HP (decay) but they just wont stay dead, standing back up from being killed...at minimum after 1D10 minutes outside of combat and requiring a save roll to do so in combat...though that will need some adjustment if used. Possibly also near immunity to stuff like drowning and gas (no need for oxygen) and other similar methods of death.
