For my char, I am just uncertain about a few things and not wanting to write up a background till I get some of this taken care of. I am uncertain in the aspects of what society roles children take. I understand the roles women have. But I am unclear on society's roles on children. I am so far clear on what children's roles are for senses, and manipulation and all that stuff. Since most are a lot older than her, there is not much to go off for what roles she can take. I am not speaking of future, I am speaking of now. It is a bit different I noticed with a child.
Here is more background related things: Yes I am trying to keep this simple.
I read closely with what Johnny posted in his bio. I got to admit, I am afraid of monks *laughs* It was well done by the way Johnny.
Ok on a real note here. Do I have to make my character be donated to the monks? Or is there other options for child prodigies? To be honest though that alone will explain everything all rolled up into one ball, and make most of my other questions invalid, or rather nice to know then important.. Most of the rest of the stuff can be finished up with Johnny, and then you have final say on the results. Mostly I can see the reasons you mentioned Johnny, and I would have to agree. I think for now that sums up everything....
Oh wait.. Is there any chance she could be from a noble family? And how would geisha work for her? She could be in training for it? I'm not sure. Since she is so young. She could only be in training. I would think... The age range I am thinking of is 5-13, old enough to be able to talk very well and education pending on that could enhance her learning speeds, thats for minium age, just going off what you said earlier. I am still thinking of an ability. Did you figure out how children work with energy manipulation? The actual rulings on it.
Xunzar: Thanks, then all I have to really worry about johnny helping me out on the things clockwork said to ask him about :) Unless the age catagory is unacceptable to you. Is all I'd really need to know, and how you get her in your hands :)
Clockwork: I am answering your questions:
What I'd like to know from you:
Good Idea or Bad Idea?
If you don't like the idea:
* Why? What would you suggest instead?
If you like the idea:
* What kind of dice? 4, 10, 20, etc.
I am used to using D20 system styles (D&D, Paladium etc), d10's (White Wolf games), d6 (West End Games) and well percentiles d100's. I don't like games that are just d100's. I really hate that. So my suggestion is to use a combo. Like here are a combo (D20 system not included they use a lot of dice to all dice) Cyberpunk/Fuzion system, d10's + d6's. D10 for stats, d6's for most damages, some bigger weapons use d10's. So thats a combo. I do like combo's the most. Its easier and keeps things simple. I do not like just rolling one set of dice (Pending on the system). If you want to do just a straight role-play thing and not adding in a game system. I would suggest straight one dice types. D6's or D10's.
* Would you rather see each consequence represented by...
- a single number (i.e. 1 = consequence A, 2 = consequence B)
- a number-scale (i.e. 1-5 = consequence A, 6-10 = consequence B)
I prefer Simple, Single Number.
* Other thoughts?
I can help if you want your own game system (that would be neat) but we would have to keep it simple, and hence offered combo idea. I tend to like Fuzion a lot. Since it works for any genre.. West End used d6 for any genre, and obviously white wolf used d10's for any genre.. I can help make up an actual character sheet for stats if you wanna do that. I could prolly make up char sheets in pdf format but not editable. For Editable, I can use a program like excel (spread sheet programs) or Open Office. For regular sheets nothing fancy fancy, I can make up text based sheets, and could put in BBCode to make up character sheets on forums. So you got options! *grins* Why not I got nothing else to do right now.
*side Note* I am holding off on 3D Art till I can figure out the new Daz Studio's its not even close to the same program. I can't seem to find a working link for the programs I used. (Sigh Sorry about this) I will have it done, just going to take me a long time. I do have most of the content I need!
*note* Yes I went back and re-read everything and all, even char profiles again. I am waiting for johnny so I can talk with him and really get this idea off the ground. I am also being very careful on questions now since I can't go back and edit, and I felt like I was constantly walking on thin ice everytime I asked something. Due to earlier events. But things should be ok now, I am on an idea that works now. A lot of things were just because I was confused and or uncertain. Clockwork, I hope you don't feel like things are going to get out of hand again.
I am trying to avoid any misshaps from happening again. I really wish I could talk to you easierly clockwork. I really don't want to be the cause of a migraine, and I am sorry about what happened before. I never wanted to make things rough. I just read things over and sigh.. I feel responsible With that said, I am not bringing this up again. I feel embarrased right now. Well can't say I am not trying :) I can't wait to play!
