Re: The 6th AAT Goblin Corps Concept

Post by RFT » Sat Feb 03, 2018 6:39 pm

I would love to play a monstrous (goblin or gargoyle - LySrial retrap) shaman. A sort of nasty magic in the style of Monster Hunter International's orcs.

PS: Are there preferred racial packages?

Sounds fun

In next day or two I will be presenting more, including a list of races. I am pulling from several books (Shaintar, Drakenheim, Codex Infernaus, Rifts etc = all Savage Worlds books). More soon.

Will have missions on Shaintar, Rifts Earth and other places. Big scenario in mind that I wrote for Rifter and did not submit yet, instead of submitting it I might use as our story.....

Still all a work in progress.

Here is my character submission. I stole VV's gremlin racial info from here as the basis for this fellow. It's a mashup of Shaintar and Saga of the Goblin Horde with some extra love thrown in. Thanks VV!
Of course, if this is not an acceptable race, I can alter it to fit your specs.

So far I have seen these, and will read them ASAP as I can!

Gremlin Psi-Operator (MARS)

I know Freemage mentioned possibly changing his race. I also know Steven mentioned a Noglik.

I will check out all you ideas as soon as I can! Thanks.

Okay, question on the Terrock. They're 'natural sorcerers', gaining a free AB. If they take an IF with an AB, do they get some other benefit? Common choices, I think, are either an additional Power, or a bonus +5 PPE.

Though I'll definitely have to go with a different backstory--star-crossed lovers doesn't quite hit the right note with the Terrock.

Not sure if I'm down with this sickness.

Vague idea for a dragon character, but...I suspect I'm missing something integral about the game's 'theme' or central appeal.

I'll keep watching here and seeing if inspiration strikes.

...and now it has. With thanks to the folks in Hangouts for helping me work this idea out.

I offer up for approval: Maia

Race information
OOC Comments
The Starfallen are beings who originally rose to sentience in the roiling plasma soup of a star. Complex magnetic field interactions with the plasma created stable waveforms that traveled through the solar atmosphere; a kind of DNA based not on chemistry but on electromagnetism and fluid dynamics of superheated hydrogen and helium. In time, that 'DNA' led to an 'organism' that could perceive its environment, that could react and influence it, and that could consider concepts of time, causation, and a sense of self and purpose. The Starfallen now are beings of psionic power and vast energy, held in check by telekinetic and electromagnetic fields. Their natural manifestation is that of a globe or indistinct blob of light and fire, with a translucent bubble surrounding it, floating through midair. They are capable of altering their containment fields to reshape themselves, but cannot appear to be anything other than a thing of living flame.

Over time, Starfallen can expand their influence, bring more stellar mass under their control. Eventually they will 'take over' all the mass of the star, creating a singular stellar intelligence of incredible scope and perceptions...and yet that is trapped by its own gravitation. These starminds can alter their magnetic fields to create huge storms that eject material into space, and into that ejecta they send fragments of their own intelligence. In this manner they explore the cosmos. Eventually the starminds succumb to the grim calculus of physics and begin their collapse. When they go supernova some starminds are able to keep the patterns of their minds echoing in the fragments that are launched at relativistic speeds through the universe...and those pieces that find other stars can kindle a new mind there as well.

In game terms, Starfallen are creatures of sentient plasma...represented by a race package, as well as the fact that every one of them is, effectively, a Burster. They do not have the option of pursuing other IFs, though their choice of Edges, Hindrances and Skills is open. Despite being basically an ionized gas, the intricate complexity of their magnetic fields and gas movements can be relatively easily disrupted by outside events. Attacks damage them normally, except as noted for their Burster powers, and they can't distort themselves to the point where they can flow through tiny openings. Most Starfallen are roughly human sized, and need to remain so in order to maintain the waveform that is their mind. Losing too much mass causes difficulties analogous to starving to death for humans. To 'eat' they need only vaporize hydrogen-bearing compounds, and add the resulting mass to themselves.

Starfallen are treated as constantly having the base version of their Flame Aura power on, and cannot opt to turn it off. If they possess the Armor power, they can enclose themselves in a telekinetic/electromagnetic field that gives them a 'solid' surface that avoids this. They can also interact with the magnetic field of a planet, or induce a field in a large metallic body, that lets them move freely about in three dimensions. In terms of senses, they have analogues of the major human senses; able to detect and interpret electromagnetic radiation (light), vibrations in an atmosphere, and can even sense chemical compositions within a gaseous medium, though must learn which is which. They are sensitive to thermal variations in their environment as well and can easily detect beings by their warmth against a cooler backdrop. Excessively cold areas or powers that leech thermal energy are very dangerous to Starfallen, threatening to disrupt the movement of plasma within them and change the processes that give rise to their sentience. Outside of that they can be damaged by anything that significantly alters the patterns of movement within their plasma, but if they survive an attack they can relatively quickly rebuild those patterns of movement again, 'healing' the injury.

I was thinking of playing Herr Klaus. Operator most likely... Might do a personel concept. Maybe plunck down some ep for his magic hammer.

Other option would be Dr. Dan a grackletooth rougue scholar who is very interested in the arcane.

Hey, guys--with Dan's permission, I made some additions and clarifications to the Terrock to make them 'street-legal', let me know what you all think:

Racial Traits
  • Avian: Terrock can Fly at base Pace; may “run” as per the Savage Worlds Monstrous ability. The have a Climb of 0. (+2)
  • Beak, feathers and wings: Obviously a D-Bee, Terrock suffer a −4 Charisma penalty when dealing with Humans of the Coalition States and similar mindsets. (-2)
  • Claustrophobic: Terrock suffer a -4 penalty to all rolls if they are in a severely enclosed space (forced to crawl, or with barriers on three sides of their square); this drops to -2 if they are only mildly hemmed in (a roof below 10', or walls on two sides of their squares). The GM may call for the penalty in other situations (such as caught in a crowd), as appropriate. (-2)
  • Predators: Terrock are Bloodthirsty (Hindrance - Major) (-2)
  • Eagle Eyes: Terrock enjoy a +2 bonus to Notice rolls involving sight. (+1)
  • Frail: Terrock tend to have a frail frame. They suffer −1 Toughness. (-1)
  • Keen Minds: Terrock are extremely intelligent. They begin with a Smarts of d8, and may raise it to a d12+2 via normal advancement. (+4)
  • Natural Sorcerers: Terrock are gifted in the arcane arts. They start with an Arcane Background of their choice. If they take an IF with an AB, they instead gain an additional Power; this can be any Power from their IF's list, or any Novice Power. (+2)

For my gargoyle I was thinking of simply using the Lyn-Srial and rubbing off the serial numbers. Is that okay Dan or did you want me to rewrite it?
