Still working out all the details. Here is a rough draft of setting rules. Check it often because I will be updating it right up to the start of the game.

Looking for up to 8 players. Here is a list of the ships positions that are open. Any positions not taken can be filled with extras if needed. Depending on how many we get some players may have 2 positions.

Captain: Squidward
First Mate:
Navigator: Caleb
Helmsman: Balanor
Boatswain: Cerulean
Chief:
Master at Arms: Giff no name
Cook: halfling no name
Medic:

Remember the setting is not complete yet so be prepared to adjust characters if needed.

  • 2D6 EFFECT
    2 Catastrophe: Something goes terribly wrong. The GM must decide what, but some ideas are a new and permanent Minor Hindrance, the inability to use powers for several days, or an explosion of some sort. The backlash should be thematic if possible. If the hero tampers with dark forces for his abilities, for example, he might become corrupted or summon something sinister into the world. If he’s a weird scientist the device might explode for 3d6 damage in a Medium Blast Template, or he might develop a Quirk, Phobia, or other “madness.”

    3 Backfire: The power succeeds as with a raise but affects a different target with the worst possible results. A bolt hits a random friend, boost Trait increases an enemy’s skill or attribute, etc. If there’s no likely target, he’s Stunned instead. If the power has a Duration other than Instant, it lasts its full term and can only be negated by dispel (the caster can’t voluntarily end it herself).

    4–5 Short Circuit: The power fails but the Power Points allocated to it are spent, along with an additional 1d6 Power Points.

    6–8 Stunned: The caster is Stunned (see page 106). She subtracts 2 from arcane skill rolls for the rest of the encounter (the penalty remains –2 even if she gets this result again).

    9–10 Overload: The character’s synapses crackle and overload with power. He takes 2d6 damage plus the cost of the power in Power Points, including any Power Modifiers the player declared.

    11 Fatigue: The character suffers Fatigue.

    12 Overcharge: The power draws ambient energy from the air, automatically succeeding against the target with a raise and costing the caster no Power Points!

For squidward...

Idea 1)
Ilithid
Bite (+1) - Tentacle-y brain nommers
Low Light Vision or Infravision (+1)
Power (+3) - AB (Gifted) w/ Mind Link and Burst powers
Dependency (-2) - Brains
Frail? (-1) - I'm not sure if they're actually frail, it popped into my head that they were physically squishy, but balances out to +2, so woot.

Idea 2)
Ilithid
Attribute (+2) - Smarts for Big Brain Time
Bite (+1) - Tentacle-y brain nommers
Edge (+2) - AB Psionics with two of the starting powers being Mind Link and Burst
Low Light Vision or Infravision (+1)
Dependency (-2) - Brains
Hindrance (-2) - Outsider? Something social/reptuation based

Concern: Mostly the Brain dependency. For SW/Ilithid it feels like more of a difficult dependency than it should be. A brain a day feels..rough. Dependencies are usually relatively easy things to manage like sunlight or fuel.

I actually kind of like the Power from the first build, as the monster manual shows that all mind flayers have psychic communication and mind blast cones, but not all mind flayers are psionicists. Either way works for me, though.

Input would be super cool.

Balanor, male elf that has 'recently' been disowned by his (nobal) family for... reasons.

With a magic AB would make a decent helmsman though he is always saying he should be captain because of who he is.

Hi there,

I posted in Discord about playing the Giff Master of Arms. Here is my take on the racial breakdown:

Bigger Than Your Average Elf: Giff average 8 or9 feet tall. SIze 1 (+1)
Strong and Powerful: Giff are strong as a Hill Giant. Strength +1 die (+2)
Tough and Resilient: Giff have a thick hide and have exceptional endurance. Vigor +1 die (+2)
Hard Headed: The thick chitinous plates on a Giff's head give him a natural head butt attack of Str+1d4 (+1)
Magic is for the Weak: Giff cannot become spellcasters. Restricted Path: Magic (-1)
Stocky and Broad Frame: Armor and clothing must be custom made for a Giff's build. Non-Standard Build (-1)
War is the Answer to Everything: Giff act accordingly to their extremely militant culture. Other intellectual pursuits are uncommon and they suffer a -1 to Smarts checks but not Smarts linked skills. Attribute Penalty Smarts (-2)

Idea 3)
Ilithid
Attribute (+2) - Smarts for Big Brain Time
Bite (+1) - Tentacle-y brain nommers
Edge (+2) - AB Psionics with two of the starting powers being Mind Link and Burst. The third starting power is Mind Reading, limited to Touch and also limited to only when eating brains. (I couldn't figure out a better way, RAW, to do the whole "euphoric cascade of memories" thing mindflayers get when eating brains.)
Low Light Vision or Infravision (+1)
Dependency (-2) - Brains
Hindrance (-2) - Outsider? Something social/reptuation based

I am interested, though I don't know much about the setting. Guess I will have to google something. What does the party need? (Fighter, rogue, wizard, cleric, ranger?) I can take any of those positions listed above.

I was working with Boyce and the suggestions above by Derrick for his own race.

Races should be 4 points total, they should have no more than 4 negative points, but will be scrutinized for gaming the system (such as bonuses to more than one attribute, and access to arcane backgrounds).

For core D&D races we will look at Immaterial Plane by Kristian Serrano where he has done an excellent job of core conversions. The only adjustment made to his work is simplifying the Human.

Technospawn is working on spell lists and arcane background restrictions so for example my Artificer does not have every power.


Races
The races presented below are balanced to 4 points of positive abilities.

See setting document
OOC Comments
Dwarf
  • Low Light Vision (+1): Dwarven eyes are accustomed to the dark of the underearth. They ignore penalties for Dim and Dark Illumination (but not Pitch Darkness).
  • Reduced Pace (–1): Dwarves have short legs compared to human-sized races. Decrease their Pace by 1 and their running die one die type.
  • Stability (+1): +2 bonus to opposed Strength rolls for resisting Push attacks.
  • Stonecunning (+1): Dwarves add 2 to Notice rolls related to unusual stonework.
  • Tough (+2): Dwarves are stout and tough. They start with a d6 in Vigor instead of a d4. This increases their maximum Vigor to d12+1.
Elf
  • Agile (+2): Elves are graceful and agile. They start with a d6 in Agility instead of a d4. This increases their maximum Agility to d12+1.
  • Frail (1): Elves aren’t as sturdy as most other races. Their Toughness is reduced by 1.
  • Keen Vision (+1): +2 to Notice rolls for visual obscurities.
  • Low Light Vision (+1): Elven eyes amplify light. Other races often claim they can see stars in the elves’ eyes. They ignore penalties for Dim and Dark Illumination (but not Pitch Darkness).
  • Trance (+1): Elves don’t need sleep, but they must meditate in a semiconscious state 4 hours every day.
Giff
  • Big (-2): The race is particularly large in a world where most others aren’t. He subtracts 2 from Trait rolls when using equipment that wasn’t specifically designed for his race and cannot wear their armor or clothing. Equipment, food, and clothing cost double the listed price.
  • Gun Training (+2): Giff are trained from a young age in the use of firearms. All Giff begin with Shooting d6 and a Shooting maximum of d12+1.

  • Low Light Vision (+1): Gnomes' eyes are accustomed to seeing below ground. They ignore attack penalties for Dim and Dark Illumination.

Half-elf
  • Heritage (+2): Half-elves may retain the grace of their elven parent or the adaptability of their human ancestry. A half-elf may either start with a free Edge of his choice or a d6 in Agility instead of a d4 (which also increases his Agility maximum to d12+1).
  • Low Light Vision (+1): Half-elves ignore penalties for Dim and Dark Illumination (but not Pitch Darkness).
  • Skilled (+1): Sharing the ingenuity of their human relatives as well as having slightly longer life spans, half-elves start with a d4 in any skill based on their experiences, education, training, or culture. If the chosen skill is a core skill, it starts at d6 and the skill’s maximum increases to d12+1.
Half-orc
  • Brute (+2): Half-orcs treat Athletics as linked to Strength instead of Agility for purposes of Advancement. Half-orcs may also resist Athletics Tests with Strength if they choose. Finally, half-orcs increase the Range of common thrown weapons from 3/6/12 to 5/10/20.
  • Heritage (+2): Half-orcs may retain the strength of their orc parent or the adaptability of their human ancestry. A half-orc may either start with a free Edge of his choice or a d6 in Strength instead of a d4 (which also increases his Strength maximum to d12+1).
  • Impulsive (–2): Half-orcs are passionate and reactive. They often take action before thinking things through.
  • Low Light Vision (+1): Half-orcs ignore attack penalties for Dim and Dark Illumination.

  • Dependency (-2): Ilithid must consume Brains to live.
  • Outsider (-2): Ilithid player characters are rebels from their own people and are inherently out of sorts around the humanoid races who distrust them greatly. They can be killed in most environments without it being considered a crime and suffer extreme fear or prejudice in most situations.

Orc
  • Low Light Vision (+1): Orcs’ eyes are attuned to habitats with dim lighting. They ignore attack penalties for Dim and Dark Illumination.
  • Size +1 (+1): Orcs are larger than humans. Their maximum Strength is d12+1 and they have a +1 Toughness.
  • Primal Intuition (+2): Orcs start with a d4 (or a d6 if Notice) in two of the following skills: Healing, Intimidation, Notice, Survival. If the chosen skill is a core skill, it starts at d6 and the skill’s maximum increases to d12+1.
Warforged
  • Built for War (2): Warforged were designed, built, and trained as tools of war. Negotiations were not part of their training, and their world knowledge off of the battlefield is limited. They do not have Common Knowledge and Persuasion as core skills.
  • Integrated Protection (+1): A warforged is covered in tough plating made of magically-treated woods and metals. Warforged gain a +2 Armor. Warforged are unable to wear additional armor.
  • Living Construct ( +6): Warforged are living constructs made from organic and inorganic matter and are capable of emotions and conscious thought. They do not need to breathe, eat, or drink, and are immune to poison and disease. Warforged also don’t need to sleep, and arcane powers can’t put them to sleep; however, they must spend at least six hours in a relaxed state. In this state, warforged remain conscious, can see and hear as normal, and can perform simple tasks.
  • Loyal (–1): Warforged are trained to protect their allies in combat, and will always be the first to come to their rescue.
  • Outsider (–2): With a long history of being dedicated soldiers of war, warforged have difficulty blending into post-war Khorvaire. Most non-warforged strongly dislike the sight of warforged as they stand as living reminders of the horror that was the Last War. As such, warforged have –2 to Persuasion rolls when interacting with non-warforged and are often treated as less than.
  • Specialized Design (+1): Warforged are typically designed for specific purposes. They start with a d4 in any skill based on their experiences, education, training. If the chosen skill is a core skill, it starts at d6 and the skill’s maximum increases to d12+1.
  • Steel Fists (+1): Warforged may attack with their fists and deal Str+d4 damage.

    6–8 Stunned: The caster is Stunned (see page 106). She subtracts 2 from arcane skill rolls for the rest of the encounter (the penalty remains –2 even if she gets this result again).

    9–10 Overload: The character’s synapses crackle and overload with power. He takes 2d6 damage plus the cost of the power in Power Points, including any Power Modifiers the player declared.

    11 Fatigue: The character suffers Fatigue.

    12 Overcharge: The power draws ambient energy from the air, automatically succeeding against the target with a raise and costing the caster no Power Points!

  • 2D6 EFFECT
    2 Catastrophe: Something goes terribly wrong. The GM must decide what, but some ideas are a new and permanent Minor Hindrance, the inability to use powers for several days, or an explosion of some sort. The backlash should be thematic if possible. If the hero tampers with dark forces for his abilities, for example, he might become corrupted or summon something sinister into the world. If he’s a weird scientist the device might explode for 3d6 damage in a Medium Blast Template, or he might develop a Quirk, Phobia, or other “madness.”

    3 Backfire: The power succeeds as with a raise but affects a different target with the worst possible results. A bolt hits a random friend, boost Trait increases an enemy’s skill or attribute, etc. If there’s no likely target, he’s Stunned instead. If the power has a Duration other than Instant, it lasts its full term and can only be negated by dispel (the caster can’t voluntarily end it herself).

Balanor, male elf that has 'recently' been disowned by his (nobal) family for... reasons.

With a magic AB would make a decent helmsman though he is always saying he should be captain because of who he is.
I need to know if you will be an Ace so you can actually fulfill the role of helmsman or if I need to and can fulfill that role.

So regarding the poll above, I think a Firefly type of ship/missions would be good. Some legit work, some not so legit work.

One person didn't vote. Technically, if Ship for Hire got one of their votes and Smugglers didn't get one, they would be tied. Although, I imagine there can be a fine line between Ship for Hire and Smugglers in the first place :p.
