Dear god what am I getting myself into

Ok, I'm new to the forums, having only joined less than a month ago, but I've joined several games and RPs, and after reading a few more, an idea came to mind. An Attack on Titan, or Shingeki no Kyojin as it's known in Japan, RP with the players taking the roles of new soldiers, with a plot entirely separate from the plot of the original manga and anime.

If that meant nothing to you, look it up on crunchyroll.

OOC thread!

Spoiler: setting (click to show/hide)

I haven't actually written up the plot yet, but I have ideas. We're using the Titan World system.

I'll be taking 10 players, maybe more once I'm more comfortable with GMing.

Of course, Twin is neither man nor woman but an unholy eldritch abomination like every other Bay12er. The difference is they hide it better.

I searched the forum, and I couldn't find one. If you do, I might steal the system from that.

I stealth-edited it in. It uses a system called "Titan World", and I don't quite remember how well it works.

I might be interested if it won't be too roleplay heavy.

Also, thanks for reminding me to check if there's a new chapter translated.

Roleplaying would really depend on the players.

I can't get the download to work, but I'll try to figure out a system.

Also, in regards to deaths, I think that I might also add a stat for getting out of impossible situations ((I.E. Spend a point of it to escape death)). Nobody likes dying on their first mission.

Maybe something like this: You've got 15 points to spend on the 4 stats at first level. Every 5 points is a +1 to rolls for that stat, but 3 or less is a -1. You get another point every level.

I'm interested.

Maybe call it the Recon Corps?

That's a good name, editing into OP.

Anyone have any more ideas for the system?

What is the difference between Luck and Intuition? They seem redundant. And how is movement going to be calculated? If Agility is one of the main stats, that effect speed, it would probably be difficult to do naritivly.

Hm... so for stats, I think I'm going with this:

Agility: Your agility on the ground and with maneuver gear. Used for escaping Titans and other feats that require speed.
Accuracy: How accurate you are with your blades. Used for attacking Titans in vital points, and other things that need good accuracy.
Will: Your will to survive. Gives you that little extra push to move away from a Titan's bite or cut your way out of their hands. ((Thought this was a better name. Still acts as HP.))
Intuition: Your instincts. Maybe they'll tell you when to put some more force behind your sword, or dodge out of the way. ((Basically, luck, for critical hits and such.))

What is the difference between Luck and Intuition? They seem redundant. And how is movement going to be calculated? If Agility is one of the main stats, that effect speed, it would probably be difficult to do naritivly.
Yeah, you're right. I think I'm going to go with movement being mostly narrative outside of combat, with agility in-combat mostly being about dodging or doing the more advanced things with the maneuver gear.

Alternatively, if someone could find those "Titan World" rules mentioned earlier and post them using dropbox or something, I'll look those over and see if they would work well enough.

The link in the other game still works for me. If not, there was a brief explanation of them there you could read over to see if it would work. First quote for the moves, first for the stats. I still have my copy if you still want one.

Alright, it worked this time.

Reading it over, yeah, it's more thought out than mine. I think I'll use that one. It doesn't specify, so what kind of dice is used?

It seems to say it, just has it really really badly placed. To be exact, it is under "Terminology".

Anyway, it says most rolls are 2d6+stat. So simply d6s.
