So if  i did the match correctly  you started Koro with 88 points?

The tweaked Usagijin Skeleton Key template that I made/used was 61 points; her final point tally is 96.

Okay so 96  was the base points you worked with okay.

Yes, both Koro and Praetorian are 96 point characters; I believe that's what Muse is building towards, as well.

Edit: Listening to my Koro soundtrack, and now I'm more keen than ever to play her. Here's hoping we find a GM soon who wants to pick up the game we've suggested here. :D

So looks like I will be bringing to the table a Gate Guardian/Tech genius from the world of Imago. I am thinking they have done some watching of the gate  in the popular vr game Ikarion. This Gate Leads to Ikarus.

Someone expressed interest in running this, but is unfortunately unable to commit to it. So we're still searching!

At this time, TheHangedMan and myself are running through our backstory as a solo RP, but that's just so that our character histories and experiences together are a little more fleshed out. Once we're concluded, or even before we are, we will hopefully have a GM ready to run the game properly.

In older editions of BESM, only the highest cost weapon atribute costs full price.  Each aditonal weapon atribute cost 1/2 that.  is that still a thing?

So, Hanged Man, Malkavian, Marie, and Myself.  Good sized group, but we cant' find a GM. 

I'm getting to know BESM better... 

Malkavian, Hanged Man, do either of you ever run? I know M.R. does.  Maybe we could do a trade?  I can try and run this (if you'll be patient with me!)  Can one of you three run something I can be the player in in exchange?  I love M.R.'s games but I've played with them a lot, so maybe one of you two would consider it?

I've run one or two things over the years, but I'm not particularly confident in my skills (especially since the games I have tried to run were either freeform or a playtest for a system I was working on).

Not sure I have the time to run another game yet, but could consider it for the future.

TheHangedMan, sorry for the delay in posting: expecting to get it done in the next day or so.

*nods* 

how about you, Marie?  :)  Run a request for me and I'll buckle in and make a BESM game for the four of us? 

:)  If not, I still might if no one else pops up.  It'll take me a while longer to study up, though.

Okay, well let's hope for a more experienced GM, but I'll continue to research BESM and see what i come up with.

i am now confident i should be able to start this in a few weeks, including offering to add one of our new girls to the mix. 

Do we know how long Malkavian expects to be away?

>_> I... I think I might be the new girl you are talking about. Right? heh. *blush* Thanks for the invite! I'm trying to understand a game system more, so please be patient with me. I thought if I could learn one while being invested in the story/concept, I might have an easier time picking up on some things.

  Yep, that's you Jen.  Glad to see you. 

  So, I've started tackling the game  mechanics for BESM 4th edition.  It looks like you roll 2d6+Modifier, either a against a difficultly or in a contested roll. 

  Actions (and character abilities) can work the rolls in their favor in two ways.  One way is to adjust the modifiers.  The other way is to get a minor or major advantage or disadvantage.  When you have a minor advantage, you roll 3d6 instead of 2d6 and take the best 2.  Minor disadvantage you roll 3d6 and take the worst 2

I'm trying to tie all of us into the plot I'm building, so that all of us are needed for the story to happen. 

I may be drawing heavily on Tammy's backstory for antagonists, but I'm making a story where we have to travel across several worlds in order to succeed, including through locked Gates. 

Malkavian (when you get back to see this) have you defined your six portals yet?  :) 

We'll need a McGuffin to defeat Brandoberis, and I think it was made by the people who created Pratorian.
