So will there be an official character sheet?

Once I can make one, of course. ;P

There's no real reason to rely on godlike Psy, though.  After all, if the continents were shrinking before the lighthouses were lit, then it'd only make sense that they'd grow and change in the millennium after.

But that's not as fun... Or a crucial plot point. ;D

How much of the plot do you already have worked out?  Basically what's in the intro post, or enough to make sure it'll never stall, or what?

I have basic plot lines laid out, nothing is set in concrete as yet though.

Will players start together or "join the party" over time?

Once we get a party together, we will start together, and from there we will basically "stumble across and recruit" any other players that join in.

Are the Djinni wandering around, or do we assume that they're already traveling with someone?

We're basically starting out on a new quest. They will be scattered in my first post.

Is Weyard still a dangerous, monster-filled world, or has it gotten safer? 

Just as dangerous if not more so.

Has the technology level changed during the past 1000 years? 

Oh yes. If I can at all swing it, we will have some decent ranged weapons (Woohoo firearms!) and I have a brilliant plan for a massive part of the RP. We shall assemble an airship!

Are adepts still a tiny, hidden minority or has the rise of Alchemy made them more common?  If Psyenergy is well-known, what is the prevailing attitude towards Adepts?

Adepts are still a minority, but there are more of them around. Every town has four minimum, one for each of the elements. And there are still those towns where the entire population is adepts. Those are sightly more common, but still few and far between.

Is the world still pretty much city-states, or are there governing bodies with larger influence?

Mostly city-states, but there are larger bodies on certain continents.

What sort of things might you put in a "strategic PM"?

Basically either stuff to move the plot along that I don't want or can't do myself, or an alert. Alerts are basically me telling that you will find a new djinn or a new unleash weapon.

Do all of these questions annoy you? :D

Not at all. Any more? :D


Also, stuff I thought of on my own:

There will be a slew of new weapons, new summons, and enough djinn so everyone will have nine apiece when we reach the end of the RP.

And I was thinking of adding a "newly discovered element; Technology, AKA Vulcan Psynergy". Yes or no on this idea?

Is there room for anymore? I'd love to join as I'm a huge fan of the GS series (anxiously awaiting the third.) I was thinking of making my character a fire adept (fire =fun) but I was wondering if maybe I could have my character in posession of the Tomegathericon to make them a dark mage. Perhaps the first of many villains?

And a new type of Psynergy sounds like it'd be feasible (since its a thousand years later). I think you should make it so that it's an uncommon or rare class of Psynergy.

In that case...  How closely are we tracking "classes"?  Will there be new ones, all of the old ones, what?

Adding some advanced technology might be interesting.  To that end, I suggest: Arcanum!  It's the name of an old PC game where characters can align themselves with either magic or technology.  You cna't use both, because the presence of magic slightly alters things like the Coefficient of Friction (http://troika.wikia.com/wiki/Chapter_1:_Introduction) and similar, while using technology makes it harder to use magic.  Of course, the sight of a fire Adept using psyenergy to fire his flintlock is equally interesting, so I'm fine with whatever everyone else wants. 
Still, keep in mind that guns, even ancient "hand cannons," drastically change a world.  They completely alter what it means to be "powerful" and would certainly make it easier for people to rival Adepts in combat.  Which might be interesting.  Hmmm...

on the otherhand with the existance of fire arms  adepts could again take a heavy advantage into a fight because they could make the fire arm fire psy energy instead of balistic ammunition which makes focusing psy energy deadly because what may have been an aoe spell before could now be focused onto one taret and all the damage that was previously dispersed amongs three or four enemies is now focused on one target like say you have i think it was inferno? that blasted all enemies with fire damage? well anyway you use that and inflicted like 2300 or 9000 or something on 3 enemies now your firing it through your gun and delievering 6900 or 27000 damage to one enemy.

Okay, but if that's the case you will come in a bit later than everyone else. Also, would you like to be a villain which will be completely defeated, or a misunderstood "villain who is really a bad guy" which will join the party after an epic battle and keep going in the RP?

And a new type of Psynergy sounds like it'd be feasible (since its a thousand years later). I think you should make it so that it's an uncommon or rare class of Psynergy.

One approval so far. And it will be uncommon at the least.

In that case...  How closely are we tracking "classes"?  Will there be new ones, all of the old ones, what?

Basically same as the games, djinn make classes. And seeing as I'm planning on making a new element, yeah there will be a ton of new classes. And I'm working on some new class items, possibly one a player, and new Psynergy spells to boot.

Adding some advanced technology might be interesting.  To that end, I suggest: Arcanum!  It's the name of an old PC game where characters can align themselves with either magic or technology.  You cna't use both, because the presence of magic slightly alters things like the Coefficient of Friction (http://troika.wikia.com/wiki/Chapter_1:_Introduction) and similar, while using technology makes it harder to use magic.  Of course, the sight of a fire Adept using psyenergy to fire his flintlock is equally interesting, so I'm fine with whatever everyone else wants.

Oh wow... Yeah, um... To quote GIR from Invader ZIM, "I don't know what you just said!!!" :D

But anyways, that seems good, so... Yeah. I think that the Vulcan Psynergy, in order to function at all, needs to be at least partly immune from the whole "alters the rule of science" thing. Everything else, there will have to be at least a slight degree of failure.

on the otherhand with the existance of fire arms  adepts could again take a heavy advantage into a fight because they could make the fire arm fire psy energy instead of balistic ammunition which makes focusing psy energy deadly because what may have been an aoe spell before could now be focused onto one taret and all the damage that was previously dispersed amongs three or four enemies is now focused on one target like say you have i think it was inferno? that blasted all enemies with fire damage? well anyway you use that and inflicted like 2300 or 9000 or something on 3 enemies now your firing it through your gun and delievering 6900 or 27000 damage to one enemy.

Okay, perhaps there will be artifacts that will be partly or wholly immune from the rule that you can use to focus AOE spells or otherwise enhance them, like maybe added effects (inflicts sleep or poison) or boosted damage, or make normal one target spells AOE spells without lowering their damage. Of course that last one will have to be severely resricted. Can you imagine an AOE Odyssey? Actually... That could be awesome! :D

Heh.  My main point (about guns) was that a normal human being with a gun (imagine one of Babi's soldiers) has power on par with any except the most elite adepts-- and a lot more range to boot.  If you have guns+a lot of people who understand psyenergy (since there are adepts in every town), psyenergy is going to be a lot less powerful/important in the RP than it was in the original Golden Sun.

Now that I think about it, though, with Alchemy unsealed Psyenergy will be a lot more powerful.  So something like "Saga" (the next stage of Odyssey) would more than compensate for the power of firearms.

Oooh!  New class items!  If I PM you an idea, would it be possible to include it in the RP?

And thus my nefarious plot to actually make normal people a bit more threatening is revealed.

Also, I will be putting up a character sheet template soonish, so keep an eye out. What reminded me to mention this here is the fact that a normal human is a feasible choice for a character, especially since there will be decent weapons in the game.

Now that I think about it, though, with Alchemy unsealed Psyenergy will be a lot more powerful.  So something like "Saga" (the next stage of Odyssey) would more than compensate for the power of firearms.

Ummm... Can you explain "Saga" to me? Like, where is it from?

Oooh!  New class items!  If I PM you an idea, would it be possible to include it in the RP?

Go for it.

On that note, a good bit of this RP is still under construction (see also: going to make some of it up as I go to adapt for various changes), so if anyone has an idea for anything, new class, new weapon, new spell, new artifact, new summon, new anything, just shoot me a PM and not only will I do my best to work it in if it makes sense, you will also have first dibs on it if you choose. :D

Well, Ragnarok=single climactic battle.  Odyssey=Long and perilous journey.  Saga=Legendary hero's lifetime or other similar epic-scale event.  It just seemed the next logical step.  Like Ragnarok, "saga" was originally used in reference to Norse mythology.  That what you wanted to know?

And by the way-- you were intentionally trying to make normal people more dangerous?  Sweet!  I've never seen someone do that before-- this'll be fun!

Yes, thank you. Actually... You may have just help me to name the beginnings of a whole new Psynergy power tier...

I would be interested in joining in. Do you have a full party, or do you need a recurring villain?

One way or the other, Probably Earth Adept, unless you intend to add light or dark adepts.

I would argue against including firearms, because psynergy renders them essentially obsolete. Also, even if the power of psynergy has increased, normal humans likely would have reaped benefits from it, like increased resistance to elements, and more then likely increased physical strength as well.

Also, Lord Alexys Zephyrai is offline at the moment, but expresses possible interest at joining in. He, I believe, would also be likely willing to play a villain, or a wind adept, if he does play. He created a number of resources already, Djinn, plot, etc, and would likely send them to you for inclusion of a Light/ Dark lighthouse story line.

Unless I'm mistaken, the only other female char we have on the team so far is a futa, so... Yeah. That'd be cool if you're cool with it. :)

Also, are we going to start character sheets anytime soon?

As soon as I can find the accursed text file I have all my various notes and such in, of course. XD Sorry, my computer is horribly disorganized. It'll be up soon, I promise.

We can use both party members and villains. Your preference.

Well, I'm sorry man, but a lot of my plot revolves around advanced tech, like firearms.

Well, have him send it to me and I'll see how well it'll fit in. :D

I have no problem with playing a female character, so I am also assuming all the party members have Psy powers or are there going to be some without. Also are you sticking to the 4 main elements or are you fine with half elements or new ones?

If we get anyone who wants to play a normal human, it'll be cool. But so far, just adepts. As for the elements, I have added a new one, Tech Psynergy, formally called Vulcan Psynergy. And from what Shadowsteel has said, I am waiting on a PM from Lord Alexys Zephyrai with his notes on Light/Dark psynergy. If you have any ideas, like half elements or even new ones, send me a PM and I'll look it over and see if it'll fit in at all. :D
