Might and Magic VII – With a Twist! (OoC)

On the night of the new moon, a small druidic cult performed a ritual to summon spirits from another world—unfortunately for you, that is all that answered. You arrived in this world stripped of your form and forced to rely only on your experience and whatever abilities this new body has…


Here’s how it works: You, the player, pick out a character from a game/movie/other cultural outlet of your choice. You then stat out the MMVII adventurer body they ended up in.

As your character grows in power, they will gain minor abilities related to who they were before they were brought here. These will obviously differ between characters: for example, if somebody picked Sonic the Hedgehog, they might get the ability to cast Haste without Fire magic.

Your race/class choices are these:

Race:
Elf
Dwarf
Goblin
Halfling
Human

Class:
Sorcerer (Sorcerer)
Squire (Knight)
Initiate (Monk)
Thief (Thief)
Tracker (Ranger)
Archer (Archer)
Warrior (Paladin)
Herbalist (Druid)
Acolyte (Cleric)

Note: Class in parenthesis denote the MMVII equivalent of the class.


A few other notes: This is going to be a little more crunch-heavy than most of the RPs here. Also, this is going to be like Helnith in that I control the NPCs.

I am asking that nobody repeat characters. So if two people want to play Sephiroth, whoever posts first gets the part. (Or you could work it out among yourselves. Whichever. )

If I get more than five people who want to play, I’ll split you up into multiple parties.


That in mind, here is what I need from you in order to play:

Name: Pretty obvious. Also version if applicable, for example if you want to play as Megatron, specify from Beast Wars, G1, Robots in Disguise… Edited Note: To simplify things, please provide a link to some sort of information page about the character you're using.
Race: Of the body they ended up in.
Gender: Ditto.
Description: Same.
Class: Again, obvious.
Your goal: A goal you, the player, wish to accomplish.
Your character’s goal: Something your character wants to accomplish.

Also stats and skill lists (available shortly).


EDIT: Starting skill lists and stats.

Class and skills: Skills in bold are set for the class. Pick two from the rest of the list.
Sorcerer (Sorcerer): Staff, one Elemental spell school (Fire, Water, Earth or Air). The other three Elemental spell schools, Leather, Alchemy, Identify, Meditation, Perception.
Squire (Knight): Sword, Chain. Axe, Unarmed, Bow, Shield, Leather, Plate, Swim, Bodybuilding.
Initiate (Monk): Unarmed, Dodging. Staff, Thrown, Leather, Swim, Bargain, Identify, Bodybuilding, Perception.
Thief (Thief): Dagger, Stealing. Sword, Thrown, Leather, Dodge, Bargain, Identify, Disarm Trap, Perception.
Tracker (Ranger): Axe, Hunting. Unarmed, Bow, Leather, Dodge, Swim, Identify, Bodybuilding, Disarm Trap.
Archer (Archer): Bow, Chain. Fire Magic, Air Magic, Sword, Spear, Shield, Hunting, Disarm Trap, Perception.
Warrior (Paladin): Spear, Shield. Body Magic, Mind Magic, Spirit Magic, Sword, Cudgel, Chain, Plate, Bow.
Herbalist (Druid): Staff, Earth Magic. Water Magic, Body Magic, Spirit Magic, Leather, Dodge, Hunting, Alchemy, Identify.
Acolyte (Cleric): One Self spell school (Body, Mind, or Spirit), Cudgel. The other two Self schools, Bow, Shield, Chain, Bargain, Bodybuilding, Meditation.

*Bargain = Merchant, but you can also use it to talk to people who normally wouldn’t talk to you. Hunting lets you collect skins, teeth, etc., from the creatures you kill. Swim lets you use equipment underwater without drowning. Identify covers items AND monsters. Everything else is more or less what it was in MMVII.

Racial stats:

Human—
Might: 15
Endurance: 15
Intellect: 15
Personality: 15
Accuracy: 15
Speed: 15
Luck: 15

Elf—
Might: 10
Endurance: 10
Intellect: 20
Personality: 15
Accuracy: 20
Speed: 15
Luck: 15

Dwarf—
Might: 20
Endurance: 20
Intellect: 15
Personality: 15
Accuracy: 10
Speed: 10
Luck: 15

Halfling—
Might: 10
Endurance: 10
Intellect: 15
Personality: 20
Accuracy: 15
Speed: 20
Luck: 15

Goblin—
Might: 15
Endurance: 20
Intellect: 10
Personality: 10
Accuracy: 15
Speed: 20
Luck: 15


You start out with 10 points to allocate. Stats in red take 2 points to raise by one, stats in green take 1 point to raise by two. You can’t lower a stat by more than 5 and you can’t raise a stat by more than 10.

I'm thinking about joining in on this. Not that I would choose him, but the thought of Kenny from Southpark came to mind. What would his minor powers be?

Also, is stuff like weapon speed being taken into account?

Kenny's the kid that always gets killed isn't he? So maybe a random chance that you regain consciousness if you get knocked out, that progresses to a chance to come back on your own if you get killed later in the game. Or perhaps a permanent Preservation effect.

In the interest of giving everyone equal play time and keeping combat as flexible as possible, 'Speed' will be used for dodging attacks and overland speed, not weapon speed. (I've seen how KoH's game grinds to a halt every time they need to roll for initiative. This way people can post when they have time, not when it's their turn. )

Very intresting concept KI, just one thing: To make it simpler for you to find out with character the person is playing, they should give you an link to where you should find information about them. You might want to specify this

Playboy or chauvinist?

Also, a man's spirit in a woman's body, now why does that sound familiar?

Is there some banned chars? What if someone pick Zeus, The Highlander or Dracula? Do they get some of their abilities in this new world? (espect of that better chanse for spells, like the Sonic thing) Whats the point to pick them if they don't keep anything specific? I like your RP, hope I'll have the time to play.

Don't worry about picking someone who could be IMBA; the whole idea behind dumping them in human(/goblin/halfling/elf/dwarf) bodies is to nullify severe differences in power, so that Galactus and Mario could potentially party together. They get abilities related to who they were starting at level 5.

Well, now that it's brought up, the second character that I thought up being put into this setting was Zapp Brannigan, from Futurama, put into a female body.

You mean do you have to drop a warrior-type character into a warrior-type body? Ancients and Creators no! That's half the fun.

Hmm, I'd like to join but i can't think of a character... They are either too obscure and don't have a history or are impossible to put into this rp.
