No extra skills just yet, we'll grow into them as we RP though.  Something to look forward to and work for.  I don't mind the HP changes, as long as everyone's on the same page once we agree on a simple stat mechanic we'll all follow for convenience and consistency.

And don't worry about party balance too much if you'd rather play a certain archetype.  If I make a character myself, if I have one at all and not just several NPCs, I'll just fill in any gaps there might be.

that's fine with the hp thing. I intentionally kept it low when I was thinking about it so that it wouldnt hang people up or have a lot of variance between sheets.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Offline Bio: Tsubame was one of the beta testers for SAO and stayed on when it was finally released to the public. She had no idea what was in store for her when the madman trapped them all in the game. But one of the first things people noticed about her when everyone's real self was revealed.. was that her looks didn't change at all. If anything it was just a little less makeup, but otherwise it didn't change. The reason being is because she never saw any reason to hide what she looked like behind an avatar and thusly always designed them after herself. While she herself noticed a subtle change in her body, Tsubame didn't fret too much about it. There was a way out and she was determined to get to it.

Again, with the two excellents, it makes me nervous because that means your characters two best attributes are both equal to and better than my own. I don't know what resistance even is, but it it has anything to do with armor, cloth or leather would be poor. I also count ten skills, not seven.

Resistance is ones ability to quickly shake off poisons with a poor resistance one would absolutely have to rely on antidote crystals.

Math is my worst subject so i'm just going to ask someone else to calculate this for me.

If Sylia's character has 1,440 hp now with the 180 hp growth per level then how much Hp would she have at level 78?

the reason I asked that is because in SAO's side story "Black Swordsman" (Anime episode 4) Kirito states that he is level 78 with 14,500 HP

If she had 180 per level, at 78, she would have 14220, which is less actually. I think that's fine, Kirito is the protagonist. Depending on what luck does, having two excellent stats would be a bit lopsided, considering agility strength and endurance are the three that most strongly or simply affect combat. That is if these stats even really mean much in the roleplay.

Around 14000, so it's close.

Maybe Resistance might benefit from having another effect.  Something like poise, the ability to resist being stunned from heavy blows (since there's no pain, it's all mental).

ok as I said I suck at math so thank you for the answer.

well technically I think it's resistance to poison, stunning, and of course confusion which has been proven to exist in SAO.

as for the whole pain thing being only mental....well since the nerve gear enacts the neurological impulses of the body and focuses them all in use in the game world I'm pretty sure getting hit still hurts like a bitch it's just since the conciousness is cut off from the real body the only thing it actually does is hurts your character the physical body feels nothing. though thats not to say that since the character is your conciousness your not feeling it. It's just that now that in game is your reality the pain is a hell of a lot worse.

In the first episode of the show, Kirito explains to another new player that pain wasn't really the same in SAO. I think he said that he didn't feel it, but I wouldn't want to be quoted on that.

Indeed.

1 Excellent
1 Good
2 Fair
1 Poor

those are the choices for stats. I know its arbitrary in the end but it feels like min/maxing if people pick anything else.

If we gotta put a story element to this, beta testers have found that these amounts are the best available array for point distribution. Anything else is weaker because you dont have enough to purchase higher stats or you'd be leaving out points. (ie, even with three poor stats, its impossible to buy 2 excellent stats. -or- having 2 poor stats, its impossible to buy 1 excellent and 2 good stats. having 2 good stats, a fair stat and 2 poor stats wastes points because you cant buy a fair stat with what points are left, yadda yadda theory craft.)

 tl;dr  dont try to shift stats.

For the skills, Sylia is ok.
7 of them are skills from the 50 list, but Great Cleave and Stunning Flat (the ones with two hyphens) are Sword Skills. The --Sword Skills is just the title for her skills in her character sheet.

I find it rather arbitrary to complain when people choose to make their characters slightly weaker by using 1-2 excellent stats especially if the GM hasn't complained about it.

I likely won't be the only GM, but let's stick to just one pattern when dealing with player stats.  One excellent and one good would promote more individual characters instead of two excellents.  We have two characters now with excellent strength and endurance, and it would be more interesting to have one with excellent strength with the other having excellent endurance instead.

So what would a fair Endurance rating net me for HP do you guys think if we're up to the thousand range now?

Well, if we assume that Sylia is our benchmark for TANKIEST OF TANK HP, then wouldn't this work?

Excellent = 1400-ish
Good = 1200-1300
Fair = 1000-1100
Poor = 800-900

I think it's a pretty decent arrangement, and should work fine considering it's just an abstraction.

Works for me.  Thanks Latooni.  Athena as I've called her is more rogue than tank, hence why I had her Endurance be only a Fair and her Agility an Excellent if I remember right.

A couple other things I've had people point out:

Crystals- Crystals aren't exactly common, or cheap. I can understand everyone saving up to buy a teleport crystal for those OHGOD moments, and MAYBE one of the cheaper ones like an antidote if they're a moneymaking class (i.e. the blacksmiths, and I think someone was a brewer?) but I'm seeing a LOT of crystals. We're low level guys!

Field Forge- I'd . . ask for approval on that. We've only seen forging inside actual buildings with whole rooms devoting to it so far, so I'd be hesitant to agree with an item to forge weapons in the field, no matter how useful it would be for me. x.o

Hmm, I didn't think of that Latooni, thanks, I'll go change that right now, cut out the antidote and reduce it to 1 and 1. It only makes sense, considering how almost none of the lower level players had this kind of abundance, and Kirito saying that the client paid a fortune for one tp crystal with a specific destination.
