No real houserules, but some things to keep in mind I'll crosspost from the first OOC topic.

*I am a moderately busy man. "busy" meaning "I have things I need to do literally every day of the week" and "moderately" meaning "But also several stretches of significant time in between those things I have to do". Thusly, I will have time to update each day, and I will be doing so, and during those times I will be quick to respond to your posts, BUT there will also be times each day where I do nothing for several hours in a row. "Well duh" you think, and certainly later in the game this is to be expected, certainly, but I'm warning you guys that even now at the start when you're all buzzing to go and have been waiting patiently for my input, I will be off-and-on for...periods. I'm sorry; it's what I can do.
*DCs: Sometimes I will tell you what the DC on a check is. Sometimes I will not. The reasons for this are my own, but are not arbitrary. The DC challenge list is as follows (Similar to the PH Handbook, but probably not exactly the same):
DC 10: Rolling to make sure you don't crit fail; even a novice should have an easy time with this, and even if they don't with a little help they'll get it. Easy. Example: picking up a lgihtweight object of moderate volume.
DC 15: Still not at all difficult, but you'll need to try if you're not trained or naturally skilled at whatever you are being called to do, though that's only if you don't have time to kill. Not-so-easy. Example: washing a load of dishes by hoof.
DC 20: Amateurs beware; without help there might be a real risk of failure here. Trained professionals will not have trouble here. The task is one of moderate difficulty. Example: Climbing a tree with no clear footholds.
DC 25: Amateurs should probably not attempt this even with help; trained professionals may want to work in a team. Masters of the craft will succeed at this task more than half the time. Hard difficulty. Example: writing a sophisticated but relatively small computer program with a two-day deadiline.
DC 30: Masters alone should be attempting this and still may fail. Master difficulty. Example: making the perfect sandwich.
DC 35: Extremely difficult. Masters will usually not succeed at this task unless given time. Example: Creating a great piece of art (a masterpiece).
DC 40: This and above are considered unattainable by anyone but the most specialized of masters. Example: Operating on an "inoperable" tumor.
DC 50-DC 80: This is considered physically impossible by most ponies, but is technically stuff that's perfectly possible - but only so through the power of friendship. Examples in increasing difficulty: "Performing a Sonic Rainboom" to "Performing a Sonic Rainboom on Command" to "Performing a Sonic Rainboom from a halted position".
DC 90 - DC 100: This is stuff that is actually impossible for ponies; at least not without copious amounts of friendship AND a very strong ability to help each other amongst SEVERAL friends. Example: Lifting a continent with ponykinesis.
DC 150: Yeah this is stuff that is just straight impossible for ponies. Examples: Anything that Discord or the Elements of Harmony have done in canon.
*In addition to all that, I hope everypony remembers that even if you aren't Generosity, magic points can be spent to increase any roll (including an enemy's, if you like) by 10.
*It should also be noted that I treat getting a Nat 20 as improving your basic roll to a 35 and a Cutie Mark Critical as improving it to a 50 - and that's before bonuses! It should also be noted that DCs scale as you level up, which means by the end of the game if your characters have roleplayed sufficently awesomely then I'll be giving you DC 25 checks for "inoperable" brain tumors in the event that you actually have to perform some surgery(you won't have to do this). The DC for "actually impossible" (150) will never change, however.
*In character, I will sometimes lie to you unless you are throughout the campaign very lucky with Persuasion checks and always ask the right questions with the Element of Honesty. Out of character (As a narrator/PH) I will never lie to you, nor will I ever use sarcasm so that I can say later "oh, I wasn't lying, I was being sarcastic". However, sometimes as narrator I will withhold information from you - either I will not mention it unless you specifically ask, or I will refuse to clarify even if you specifically ask or occasionally even ignore that you asked at all if even an "I can't tell you" would be giving away too much information. I reserve the right to do any of those things, BUT will never do the second or third things if you ask me using an in-game power that allows you to ask certain questions of me (like Twitchy Tail).
*Any power that can be used "Once per game session"? Change that to "Once per Scenario" and we're fine.

EDIT: Oh, and, uh, nearly forgot: level yourselves up to level four, yes.

Ah, alright. In that case I made one last change to Gypsy. I gave him the first level of his destiny. And that included a companion.

When the new guys get introduced, you'll all either be at or about to hit level four.

So.

I suppose that means I should pick a Destiny. Hmm, since our would-be Archmage seems to have vanished I suppose that Destiny is open, however I was thinking of taking Master Detective. So many choices... and they seem to have added some since I last checked, or at least I don't remember some of these...

Two things. 1) May I transfer the old Words of Wisdom to the Abilities system, since it never made the switch, and 2) may I make it so that it's one point per use, like so many people do?

Working on my sheet, would you guys mind providing links to the current team? Just want to make sure my stats work with the rest of you, and there's no ability overlap or anything.

Err... Was loving your build... UNTIL I SAW "IT'S OVER" yuck! I hate that JOKE of a talent!!! NEVERMIND, we talked in privet and you changed that move out of your build. :3 (also edited in your unicorn into my listing of names)

Also you have some custom & old-school stuff that Aproc will need to approve of. (other than your Chaotic Laughter & X Point = X/day Words of Wisdom, that he did approve of you taking) But I'm sure he'll allow all of them... The build looks solid outside of that one hated talent of mine...

Re: Luna's Command: the Recruitment Station

Post  Xel Unknown on Thu Aug 21, 2014 7:32 am

I have two minor houserules suggestions to be in effect for this game one being a new move that is intended to replace Against The Odds... And a minor houseruling for Adrenaline Rush to be usable while stunned and/or dazed. (Aproc, you'd choose if it works on both, Daze only, or Stun only... Peronsally I'd suggest aganst the "stun only" thing and you should pick between either working against both or daze only.) And like call them a "Passive Reaction" talent. "Passive Reactions" of course dealing effects after it's trigger happens & can also be triggered when dazed and stunned... (gives idea for the GM's monsters to use)

suggestions:
[0] Adrenaline Rush - Passive Reaction
Trigger - An enemy deals X or more damage to you with an attack, where X equals 1/5th of your starting health.
Effect - Flip a coin. If heads, you gain a PiP. (this move may be used while dazed and/or stunned)

=AND=

[-3] Risky Business - Minor Utility
You become "Takin the Odds" until the start of your next turn. Only ONE person per round may be in this state. A Creature who is "tanking the odds" suffers vul 2 & can perform the following two talents:

[0] Counterstrike - Reaction Attack
Trigger - You are dealt damage by an enemy
Effect - Deal 1d12 damage to the triggering enemy. This Talent can be triggered alongside "WRONG TARGET!" to deal a comboed 1d12+1d8+4 total damage as one reaction attack at the cost of 1 energy.

[0] WRONG TARGET! - Reaction Attack
Trigger - An ally is dealt damage by an enemy
Effect - Deal 1d8+4 damage to the triggering enemy. This Talent can be triggered alongside "Counterstrike" to deal a comboed 1d12+1d8+4 total damage as one reaction attack at the cost of 1 energy.

It's ok... My suggestions don't help me but the team's Dragon... And on a topic that effects MY character... What do you think of the flavor idea that at level 5, Lunar the Hippogriff, becomes LUNAR THE LIGHTNING ELEMENTAL!!! By way of Mechanical? HE WILL BE KNOWN AS THE LIGHTNING BIRB!
