Roll to Magic: Turn 268 The finish line
« on: June 24, 2014, 08:56:53 am »

Roll to magic

You are one of the mages, capable of influencing reality around you by will alone. But such power is not always enough, sometimes, you need more, sometimes you need a catlyst. And that is why you are here, and why they are here. Dying breath of a mage can be crystalized, their power and skill traped in a physical container. Many will die today, so that you would be able to shape the universe as you desire.

Magic Modifiers
While you can chose what to controll or summon, should you want to do something more intricate, you will need to use the spell modifiers. Each modifier  incurs a penalty to your cast success roll. Basic mod is -1, Advanced is -2 and Master gives you -3.

For Special modifiers you can chose the level (Basic/Advanced/Master) to chose both the power of their effect and their penalty.

You can cast a spell in combination with another mage. This will allow usage of both afinities, possibly reducing complexity penalty, and the total power will be combined power of all mages involved (power is roled sepperately for each one). But the success will also be roled for all mages involved seperately, so wach out for spectacular failures.

Your movement alowance is calculated as follows: (SPD roll+your bonus)/2+1

This is my first time being GM to a RTD, so if you have any sugestions, questions or balance issues, post them, and I'll answer.

The point of keeping the golems on fire isn't for the value of fire as a weapon. It's more to keep the golems functioning at a reasonable speed.
It was never a promise. It was a dirty lie, and you all knew that. You should all know by now that you can't trust a word I say.

Hahaha. It truly is. :P Though in truth, I wasn't even thinking about that when trying to come up with my affinity.

See, now, "The abbility to copy abilities of other beings" is what I would call overpowered in its raw form. So I'll have to either limit you to Stealing seperate spells that were cast (Say, "summon mobile halberd", for example) or incur heavy penalties for copying.

If we were to get technical, you were suposted to pick a thing or a force which would act as the keystone of all your spells, not an ability. If you want to roleplay kirby, whenever you kill somone, you could buy whatever afinity they had (10 shards).

This is mostly for Darkpaladin, but worth remembering for evryone.

Whenever you cast a spell, you will need to specify how your chosen afinity fits into the spell. Look at the examples in Magic afinities if the procedure is unclear for you.
