Okay... so these are 10-sided die, and only 7-10 will actually net you positive points?

Alright, I think I've got it. So going by Red's, I've got an INT of 2 and a Lore of 4, so that's six rolls. I get a 5, 4, 8, 3, 3, 5. So I only got a role of 1?

(wow, that was a shitty demo roll. I hope I get some better ones later...)

[up]Eeyup.[lol] Yeah, you'll probably get better ones later.

I wrote a Python script to automatically handle rerolls and add up the points in case you're interested.

It's just a function. You put in the number of dice and it tells you the rolls and the total points.

What I meant was how do the rest of us access it?

Or did you just bring it up as something you use for yourself?

Well I can post the code and then you just run it in the Python interpreter.

I haven't actually ever started the thing, and I'm sorry, but I may not actually ever start. I can't exactly say I'm BUSY right now, since it's summer and all, but there's just so many things to do.

For the sake of completeness, can we hash out the details of Crystal's Hydrokinesis (TK variant) and Freeze spells? Mostly the costs. I'd try to come up with something myself, but I'm no good at cost balancing.

So how do you spend character points anyway? Do we have to wait until the gap in between campaigns?

Sorry guys, I've been sick. Still am, but at least now I'm capable of intelligent conversation (sort of). (I HATE feeling this useless.)

Anyway, I'd rather work on balancing when I can engage in complex thought without worsening my headache, but hydrokinesis and ice manipulation should be fine. Plus, it's appropriate for your talent, so it'll be cheaper for you.

So we get extra character points when 'Hasbro' decides to award them, right?

Another thing I'd like to ask is, how can we develop relationships? Because I don't have any with anyone, but since this is presumably our 'party' now, it would be a good idea to start developing them.

[up]That's correct. You guys are actually doing very well, so you should soon get a lot.

As for relationships, it's actuall pretty easy within the group. Just talk to another character, indicating to me that you want to forge/maintain/enhance a relationship. Then roll socialise + charisma (you can sub in presentation for forging a new relationship or altering the nature of an existng one). Assuming that they don't resist, which they're unlikely to, 5 points will be enough.

Oh, that makes sense. Huh. I guess I'll be forming a relationship with Clouds soon, then.

 892 crowlover, Tue, 26th Jun '12 9:50:45 AM from a Jolly Caucus Race Get RP Mod Relationship Status: Don't hug me; I'm scared
Alright, yeah.

I was thinking of having Clouds form a relationship with Ballad as well.

Also, has enough time passed that I can try to mend Clouds' relationship with The Crow again?

Should I do a relationship roll(That is, try to form a relationship with Crystal) over that, or is the first level reserved for a level beyond acquaintances/teammates?
That is, I feel, an important question. Flavor-wise, what does each relationship point of relationship represent? How many for acquaintances? Someone you've worked with for three months? Someone you've been friends with since high school? A happily-married couple, 5 years strong and still going?

Yeah, I'm kind of a stickler for flavor. That might be a bit of a factor in why I like the WOD system.

It rresents how much you care about someone. Having a relationship with someone means that they inspire you to do better. The length of time you've known them isn't mportant.

Oh, the duration of the relationship wasn't my point, but surely you won't deny that it's a powerful factor in the strength of a relationship? I mean, on average, you'll be better friends with someone after a couple of years compared to when you've only known them a couple of weeks, right?

Oh, and a bit on character creation? As it is, you start with a number of relationships equal to your Magic, each with a strength of 3, right? But I think it would be better if, say, you start with a number of points equal to thrice your Magic, which you can distribute to any number of relationships, with a max strength of 3. Allows for more flexibility, so you can define things like 3 for your family because you love them to bits, but only 1 for the local park because while it's an important place to you, it's not that inspiring in comparison.
