    Serenity RPG Discussion

    Read the rules here.
    http://www.t5forums.com/forum/the-fu...g-system-fresh

    I'll handle all die rolls. This is mostly based on D&D 4.0 with some Final Fantasy mechanics thrown in.

    If you are interested in playing and have any questions let me know.

    Hopefully I can get a group of at least 4 players to go along with this. If we don't get enough players, you can make and control more than one character if you are comfortable role playing more than one character simultaneously.

    Post any questions or suggestions here. Discuss among yourselves what type of character class you want to make so you can balance your party.

    You don't need to be an expert at D&D character creation, the boss enemies will be designed to assume average character builds, not perfect power builds.

    Here is an example of a level 5 Fighter. The number in parenthesis is important, it is the net modifier of the attribute.

    Class: Fighter.
    Level: 5
    Race: Human
    HD: D10 per level
    Strength: 18 (+4)
    Dexterity: 12 (+1)
    Vitality: 18 (+4)
    Intelligence: 10 (had earned +1 bonus Attribute at level 4)
    Charisma: 8 (-1)
    BAB: 5
    Armor Class: 20
    Armor: Full Plate +1
    Weapon: Great Sword +1
    Fortitude: 7
    Reflex: 4
    Will: 7 (Iron Constitution)

    Skills:
    Taunt: 8
    Parry: 8
    Tumbling: 4

    Feats:
    Veterancy (+25 Hp)
    Weapon Focus: Great Sword
    Cleave
    Iron Constitution
    Toughness.
    Power Attack

    HP: 100 (14 per level from HD and Vitality bonus, plus 25 from Veterancy, +5 Toughness).
    MP: 0


    Okay, that's the example, since we are starting with level 5. This character is pretty dumb and vulnerable to mind attacks, you don't have to load a fighter this much on Strength and Vitality, but I'm just showing a loaded Fighter.


    If you want to play and need help building a character, let me know, I'm an expert at D&D character builds.

          You need to be level 5. Also this isn't exactly the same as D&D, but I made this from memory. I'm using a 5 Attribute system, while D&D uses a 6 attribute system.

              And ditch her wisdom stat, using intelligence instead.

              Might need a class change as well, I dunno how... Arcane archer, right? I dunno of that'll translate super well.

                Yeah, you can play. The rules are just guidelines. Try to convert whatever the character is to these rules. I used 5 attributes because it's simpler and less redundant.

                If you are playing an Arcane Archer, I recommend adding Combat Expertise, because I'm going to be using Core Rules. This means casting spells at melee range, or firing a bow at melee range, incurs attacks of opportunity. It's okay though, your character should be fine if it is at least average design. You don't HAVE to do this, I'm just recommending it.

                      Okay, so you're a Fighter/Arcane Archer dual class? How many levels in each class?

                      I fixed your attribute bonuses above. You should edit yours to be the same.

                      Normally you can't make Arcane Archer earlier than level 6, but I'll allow it.

                      You also still have two more feats to spend: One from the base Background feats, and one from level 3 normal feat.

                      How many levels do you have in Fighter?

                      Okay, what is your equipment? I assume you are using a Long sword and a bow.

                      You get basic weapons and basic Studded Leather armor by default.

                          I don't think he was meaning to multiclass, I think he was just picking the closest class available in your outline, which would've been fighter.

                            Arcane archer is a fighter class, it's like a rank up. There are other classes that branch from fighter

                              It used to be a mage class. In 3.0 and 4.0, you needed access to Level 3 spell in order to take the Arcane Archer prestige class.

                              What are the Arcane Archer's special feats in the version you were playing? I don't remember them exactly, so we can just make something up, so long as it sounds reasonable.

                              Edit:
                              Sorry, it's only level 1 spells needed. It was the 6BAB that I was remembering wrong anyway.

                                We'll use these rules for Arcane Archer, but (Game Master Override) I'll allow you to take Arcane Archer as a Base Class instead of the requirements for a Prestige Class.

                                http://www.d20srd.org/srd/prestigeCl...caneArcher.htm

                                I'll also give you once-per-day fireball and once-per-day lightning, to be used only with Imbue Arrow

                                      Yeah. About 4 to 6 characters total though, so lets see if other people want to play, then if not then you and XV can make 2 or 3 characters each
