Flamespitter for Tirgal Danvanbor

Post by Tirgal Danvanbor »

Signature Item Propsal
Flamespitter
Flamespitter is an enchanted long bow made from steeltree in the dinosaur swamps. Tirgal won it from a tribal leader there, and then he moved on to the Magic Zone. He did some favors for a mystic who agreed to enchant it for him.
The mystic imbued the bow with holy energy that blesses each arrow fired, but he also wove in a fire enchantment. When Tirgal desires it, he can activate the enchantment to cause each arrow he fires to burst into flame.

I haven't done this in a very long time, so I'm not sure what, if anything, I've done wrong. But, to be fair, I made it a very long time ago, so I'm hoping not much!

Edit: Tirgal is a vagabond monster slayer who uses bows and every kind of arrow possible to get the job done. He doesn't have an AB, but he is a sharpshooter.

I don't see anything wrong with it. Though I'm not as up to date on making Sig items as others. Seems to follow the rules.

Looks good, instead of add AP maybe add a power modifier, could you add the modifier and maximize AP by increasing activation costs?

I'm not sure what you're asking @Venatus Vinco. Are you saying to keep the AP Power Modifier, but make it a static +3 PP for 6 AP? If so, I don't mind.

So: 2 PP to activate Smite or 5 PP to activate Smite with 6 AP?

If you meant something else, I didn't quite catch it.

Edit: Actually, Smite is a Range Smarts power costing 2 PP. Using a Limitation to take it from Smarts -> Touch -> Self would be -2 PP, wouldn't it (that's how savaged.us does it at least)? Add +1 PP for as part of another action.

2 PP (Smite) +1 PP (Activate as part of another Action) + 3 PP (AP Modifier) = 3 PP or 6 PP.
3 PP/6 PP - 2 PP [Self Limitation] = 1 PP/4 PP.

So should it instead be 1 PP to activate Smite and 4 to activate Smite with 6 AP? Assuming I read your reply correctly.

Also, did I math wrong?
5k + 5k (2 minors)=10k
Novice Power (20k) x 3 (Activate as part of another Action)=60k
Power Modifier = 20k
60k + 20k + 10k = 90k x 2 (Enchanted) = 180k + 3k (300 [Long Bow] x 10 [SteelTree]) = 183k not 203k. Right?

I was about to post the correction on the lowered cost for Smite/Self, so yes, that's the math for the Power Points.

@Venatus Vinco was this the change you wanted to see?
@Freemage would you consider this approved?

If the issue was with spending 1-4 PP like it was originally built, I'd prefer for the Smite to work like this: "1 PP for Smite or 4 PP for Smite with +6 AP"

However, if this is the change needed to get the bow approved, I will accept the price :).

I totally give that last version a thumbs-up! And note, you can spend 1 PPE for Smith, +0-3 for the AP Modifier (it's a slider, not a toggle). So no AP for 1 PPE, and 6 AP at 4 PPE.
