Battle Avatars - OoC

Ok this one is a little different, so bear with me.  The concept is simple.  There are many worlds, all tied together through something called The NEXUS.  People can freely travel from their own world to the Nexus, but seperating them from other worlds is a enormous arena/maze.  Many fights and trials await anybody who dares enter.

None of the worlds are designed by me.  The Nexus also changes when new worlds are connected, or ... disconnected.  So it has no set form.  Now each person who enteres is given a Homestone, and a Battle Avatar.  (Will be explained later).  The object is to make it to the center of the Arena, but the catch is ... never know what you can expect.  Since there are a LOT of worlds connected to it.

Now when creating your character you must also create your Battle Avatar.  Your character can basically be anything you want, there are no limits.  Because abilities, powers, etc do not work in the Nexus, everything is done with your BA (Battle Avatar).  A god of one dimension has as much chance as a 7 year old girl from another.

Here is the process of creating your BA.
Element : Air, Earth, Fire, Water, Light, or Dark.
Symbol : S or F.  (Stands for Sci-fi or Fantasy..and does help (along with element) me determine your BA's abilities.
Form : Can look like just about anything, form has no barring on how strong it is.
Size : Smaller sizes can get places larger can't, but larger sizes can be ridden and generally tougher to take down.  This will play a role in strength, speed, etc.  (Small = Faster/more agility, Larger = more str/more durability).

I don't know if this will ever kick off, but I'll give it a shot.

Element : fire
Symbol : F
Form : A great demon, about 7 feet tall, long razor-like claws, fangs, wings, dark red skin, sword of fire, the whole bejibberjabber...
Size : rather large...

Specials: Flight, Rain of Fire (outdoors only), Burning Fists, Strong against Dark and Air.  Weak against Light and Water.  All fire element take half damage vs all other fire element creatures.  +Str/endurance -speed/agility.  Inferno (caution does some damage to controller also, but one of the stronger attacks).


The person who controls this BA is an old, demented sorcerer. He is about 60 years old, dark green robes, short white beard, goes by the name of Nevil, long gray hair and a wooden staff.

Nevil is a summoner who has spent his entire life researching the void and quests for power that he thinks can be attained in the arena.

Element: dark
Symbol: F
Form: A great archdevil, 9 feet tall
Size: large
Name: Mephisto

Abilities:
Hover - While not technically able to fly, it can hover off the ground.
Dark Claw - Attack and weaken enemy.
Dark Nova - Distance attack.
Shades of Hades - Strongest attack, calls forth a spectral army, however..each use weakens the controller..and each time used it gets worse.
Frenzy Gaze - Corrupt the minds of anyone in sight, friend and foe alike, making them attack each other. However, it uses a lot of power, thus the BA is unable to use any other ability for quite some time, before the powers recharge. Also has a failure chance of affecting itself, causing it to attack the nearest thing only physically without regard to friend or foe. Doesn't work on mindless creatures (mechanical and undead)

Strong against: All but Light and Fire
Weak against: Light and Fire
Half damage from: Dark






The controller:

Name: Mordekai

Mordekai is a power-hungry sorcerer from an unknown world. He has the power to bind even ArchDevils at his will, and is so confident of his abilities, that he dares to challenge the dangers of the Nexus.

My eye is suspicious of what this means:

So my inferno attack rules, but the old man who controls him gets hurt? In that case, would it matter if I changed him to a greek god? (hypothetical situation, here, I'm not really changing him in a greek god, I swear)

Yes and no.  Let me explain.  While I as GM will have a lot of say in what happens, I won't dash creativity either.  This is an experimental game type, something a bit new.  The worlds you come from, some of the other worlds, and some of the Arena are created by the players.  Yes there is a structure, and yes there is a goal. Feel free to make your own confrontations, but expect that I will also make some for you.  

DagothGares - You can go ahead and make him how you want.  Remember in the Arena, rules are a bit different.  Even if you make him a greek god of fire, the inferno will still damage him.  Because he is not in his own dimension.

mamgaeater - Go ahead and use two, but the water will be the one that determines weaknesses/strengths.  Unlike pokemon where a water/ground would be immune to electricity (for instance) doesn't work that way here.  Since the attacks etc are from the 'main' attribute the second is mostly cosmetic, but you can still have it.

Battle Avatar Abilities (BAA) : Steam Blast - Damage and consealment.  Burrow (one I am giving because of secondary and look ) - hide under ground can do a suprise attack from it.  Tail Blast - Concentrated blast of water..but takes long to recharge.  Shimmer - Strongest attack which covers entire area around it with ice, but shuts down engine for 2 'turns'. +agi/speed - str/end.  Can fit into a lot of places others wont.  Strong agains : Fire and Earth.  Weak against : Wind and Light.  1/2 from water.  

Asheera -  Yes, it actually does matter .  Though the Avatars do most of everything, the person behind it gives it a personality.  Think of them like machines..it is the operator that matters.

BAA :  Hover - While not technically able to fly, it can hover off the ground.  Dark Claw - Attack and weaken enemy.  Dark Nova - Distance attack.  Shades of Hades - Strongest attack, calls forth a spectral army, however..each use weakens the controller..and each time used it gets worse.

Carcity.  Your BA has the following BAA : Levitate - Again no true flight ability, but capable of vertical movement. Sword Slash - Flurry of blows with a sword.  Materia - Random (determined by me) magical effect .. starts out weak.  Overload - Able to use several sword slashes (3) and one Materia for 1 attack (which normally would take 4 attacks).. however cost 1/2 of remaining hitpoints of controller and completely immobilizes for 2 turns.  Can not be healed except by time when using this.

Oscarius : Healing Aura - Self and those the controller considers aliies regain hitpoints faster then normal (except in the case of say Overload).  Light Spear - makes the spear into light and passes through most defenses, dealing increased damage and can strike more then one enemy in a round if one is behind another.   Sanctify - Immediate heal for self and controller and damage to any percieved enemy in room (ie if they are thought of as enemies they take damage)...however is half for any non-dark creature and can only be used once a day.

The world that spawned johnny has imploded due to his own evil

Ok.  Over time you will accumulate Battle Points.  These can be used to increase your advantages and decrease your penalties.  You will notice that the strongest attacks all have a draw back.  This too..in time can be lessened (the drawbacks).  Don't expect it to be immediate or overnight.  The road to the center of the Arena is a long and hard one, all of you might not even make it.

*Pff* Whatever.  You know that nobody could withstand him.

Mephisto - "I'm the Lord of some layer of Hell I can't remember!  I will damn your soul you filthy maggot!!!"
Johnny - "Sir that is slander and I would ask you to exercise some refrainatude or else I will sue you!"
Mephisto - "Wait.  Aren't all the lawyers supposed to be part of my domain?"

Sephiroth - "I will kill you with my emoness!"
Johnny - "Is that a threat?  I'll sue you for assault!"
Sephiroth - "If only my mother had been around to raise me and teach me it's wrong to do such things."

I've been thinking of joining this, but since it's my first RP I'll have a lot of questions...

First, I've been searching through other RPs to try and understand the basics, and I realize that there are a lot of differences betweeen them.

What I think I've understood so far:

This thread, the OOC, is where we talk "behind" the game right? Where we evaluate damage, abilities and just chat about the characters so that the real thread doesn't look like a spam-battlefield, right?

I'm guessing that when I design a situation, or work from a situation created by the GM, I'll have to leave some room for you to respond, right Mytical? I can't say XXX slays the beast and continues to the next realm. (extreme example)

A better version would be, that in the "real" thread I write who I attack and which special ability or normal attack I use, and then leaves a cliffhanger for the GM to respond.

Like "XXX draws his blade and charges towards the beast, XXX prepares a strike"

GM: "The beast dodges XXX's blow and rips his chest open with his claws."

Of course, I wouldn't just write the actions that affect the RP, I would also write about the Character's thoughts and stuff to make things more interesting.

In the OOC thread, we evaluate just how deadly the strike was and how big my chances are to actually survive, then from that info, I decide what to do in the real thread and continues on.

Right? Otherwise you'll have to correct me
I've read all the tips and tricks about Rping threads but there's still a few gaps... guess the only way to really know is playing.

Sorry if I'm being a bit too SIRIOUS, that's just the way I am, I'd like everything to be perfectly clear so I don't mess up. A lot of questions I've asked here might make you think "Well Duh...!"

Oh, and one more question, the controller, is he/she with the BA during the adventures? Or is he/she like, sitting in the homerealm and controlling the BA from there?

Going to cover each question individually .



This thread, the OOC, is where we talk "behind" the game right? Where we evaluate damage, abilities and just chat about the characters so that the real thread doesn't look like a spam-battlefield, right? Yes, and other things that may not be game related at all.

I'm guessing that when I design a situation, or work from a situation created by the GM, I'll have to leave some room for you to respond, right Mytical? I can't say XXX slays the beast and continues to the next realm. (extreme example) I allow some leeway, but yes.  And if in a confrontation with another PC (player character or another person playing the game's character) it is ABSOLUTELY essential not to do the 'x slays y' type thing.

A better version would be, that in the "real" thread I write who I attack and which special ability or normal attack I use, and then leaves a cliffhanger for the GM to respond. Right, and sometimes I will give you an opponit also.  Not everything has to be just a fight however.  Could be traps, puzzles, etc.

Like "XXX draws his blade and charges towards the beast, XXX prepares a strike"

GM: "The beast dodges XXX's blow and rips his chest open with his claws."

Of course, I wouldn't just write the actions that affect the RP, I would also write about the Character's thoughts and stuff to make things more interesting.


You understand perfectly


In the OOC thread, we evaluate just how deadly the strike was and how big my chances are to actually survive, then from that info, I decide what to do in the real thread and continues on.

Right? Otherwise you'll have to correct me
I've read all the tips and tricks about Rping threads but there's still a few gaps... guess the only way to really know is playing.


Again, you have the gist of it down.


Oh, and one more question, the controller, is he/she with the BA during the adventures? Or is he/she like, sitting in the homerealm and controlling the BA from there? They are with the BA during the Adventures.

Thanks Mytical

Then here's my BA + controller:

BA Name : Kenji
Element : Dark
Symbol : Sci-Fi.
Form :


A Cyborg-Samurai/Ninja...

Size : Human Size

Skills

Accelerate - Increase speed/agility/number of attacks.  

Vanish - Short burst of invisibility.  

Dark Blast - Ball of dark energy.

Soul Snare - Only works if a strike is fatal, drains energy and uses it for itself and its controller.  However, this attack also ages the controller by a random amount.

Advantage: Can heal even near fatal wounds completly by letting Harus repair him. (Kenji can also repair minor damage by himself, using tools ofcourse.)

Disadvantage: Unlike organic BAs, Kenji is unable to heal wounds automatically, he needs his Master's help for heavier wounds.

This is pretty obvious since Kenji's a cyborg, but I'd like to make it clear so I don't surprise anybody with it

Also note that Kenji has small but important organic parts (Cyborg duh), so you can't rip him to small pieces and put him together again.



Strong - Almost everything but light.  Weak - Light


Controller Name: Harus
Controller form: A tall, muscular black man with a mechanical left arm. He's dressed in a vest and black leather pants.

Harus and Kenji's Homerealm:

Their realm is called Edernia, in a time, long ago, this realm was a beautiful paradise. Unfortunately, the power of industry turned the world into a mechanical hell. Mountains have been flattened, forests devastated and oceans drained.

All that matters now is technology, an endless hunt for a better life. Virtual worlds are the most popular, places where people can live the life they want and ignore the government's complete supervision.

The world would've died by pollution long ago if not for technology, it's now a ghost-world with depressed people walking around without purpose. The Nexus portal is forbidden by the government, as they don't want people to realize that there is a world outside Edernia.

Some however, seek the thrill of life, among them are the scientist Harus and his creation, Kenji.

Appearance: elven-like, but no long ears, with a scar on his left eye area. Rather mysterious and secretive.

BA:



Name:        Djenn
Appearance:  Dual wielding, some 7 feet tall, wearing heavy armor, just like in the pic.
Element:     Light
Symbol:      S
Size:        Rather large.

Skills:

Resistance     Forgoes attack to totally negate any damage.
Haste Slam     Does incredible damage to enemy, but lowers defense.
Heaven's Blast Explosion that does double damage to any dark based creature.
Light of Honor Does an area explosion for tremendous damage; however, if something has not done damage to the BA it takes no damage.

Wow this is really starting to pick up interest .  Ok give me a minute to formulate the abilities

Ok can't see either picture so these may change.  A light and a dark Sci-fi hmm.  That could get interesting.  Almost like a samuri and ninja .

Ok first..the Cyborg Ninja.  Of course..martial arts/martial weapon skills..the basics.  Accelerate : Increase speed/agility/no of attacks.  Vanish - Short burst of invisibility.  Dark Blast - Ball of dark energy.  Soul Snare - Only works if a strike is fatal, drains energy and uses it for itself and it's controller.  However, this attack also ages the controller by a random amount. (No..no immortal character ).  Strong - Almost everything but light.  Weak - Light.


Eugen: Resistance - Forgoes attack to totally negate any damage.  Haste Slam - Does incredible damage to enemy, but lowers defense.  Heaven's Blast - Explosion that does double damage to any dark based creature.  Light of Honor - Does an area explosion for tremendous damage.  However, if something has not done damage to the BA it takes no damage.
