@Liliya, I, for one, am very excited to see what you crank out from that imagination machine of yours (that would be my 'I worked in elementary for several years' language showing through... Sorry)! All-in-all, you have managed to spur me into looking for my old WoD books. Goodness... This is going to be a trip.

You don't remove things altogether from characters if you can help it. That's a part of her identity, of who she is as Feigh'Druma. You wouldn't take Lara Croft's ability to shoot, but if the story or fight scene required her to be unable to shoot for impact or storyline reasons you can always ensure that she lost the guns somewhere along the way before the melee started off.


Yes you can. You select the highlighted text and press backspace or delete for the sign up of a tournament you are participating. If a character has an ability that may conflict with the balance of the game, or in violation of a tournament then you can easily remove it or use another character if it is THAT difficult. I doubt there was much effort crafting that ability since it's about 2 paragraphs large under minimum requirements so don't conflate identity politics with roleplaying combat.

@Devil, while I appreciate the suggestion, I have no intention of removing anything I have taken the time to craft on Aleigha. As I pointed out in my reply back to @Nafear, I enjoy the aesthetic of this character, and the power in question applies to that aesthetic just as much as anything else on the character sheet.


It isn't an aesthetic. It's a function. Don't attempt to obfuscate an issue with misuse of jargon.

You are by all rights within you right to feel that way. I have seen those instances myself... Even fallen victim to them. Regardless, I am always of the opinion to trust first that whoever I am pitted against will act within the realm of fairness and reason


Much like Doctor: you aren't convincing me of anything with your buzzwords of "fairness" if you, yourself, were the victim of the very meta-game I brought up concerns with. So your argument boils down to "It's ok when I do it."

@Devil, I do appreciate your concern, again. Ultimately the choice is @Nafear's to make.

@Doc Doctor, There is no reason that the ability could just not function - it really would have zero impact on Aleigha's overall performance, considering that she does not rely on the ability as something to give her any sort of reliable advantage in combat.


Then just remove it.

@Onigumo, I have already replied to this suggestion. Thank you though, nonetheless.

Forbidden Abilities & Equipment

Light Manipulation
Mass-Destruction
Telepathy
Teleportation


Can you expound on these for clarity. What do you mean by telepathy being forbidden. Do you imply telepathic communication or reading minds? Light manipulation as in its speed or its luminescence?

I will elaborate later this morning. The six-sided die may be a more appropriate remedy than editing the character. As for other characters I will look them over soon.

I would be interested in joining as well.

I am currently in the process of re-writing Xaviers CS. It's been a few years since it was written but it should get the job done for now.

Okay, so I've had an annoying head cold/sinus/ear thing all weekend and got distracted jumping back and forth between three half fleshed out ideas, and a mostly finished character I had intended for a fight with one of the newer entries to @Doc Doctor's roster a while back who I eventually decided couldn't possibly compete in this particular setting, so for now, I'm putting Noxx into this as my entry. Sorry @Glass, maybe we can get something going with my as of yet unfinished WoD inspired character (I have unfinished concepts on a Classic WoD Wraith and a NWoD Promethean Created creepy mannequin lady, both of which I love) later on if you're still interested, but unless this interest check drags on a bit longer (which if you want it to happen at all @Nafear, knowing what I know about this site would be a terrible idea) Noxx seems like the right choice for the time being. I intend to use the Zetan's melee loadout for Aleigha and the blaster loadout for Donny and any other ranged/firearm users that pop up, no guardian drone and the additional crap (deployable stuff and glorified health potions) will either simply not appear or will be discussed with the other roleplayer beforehand, on a case by case basis.

That definitely was not my intent, @Nafear! I apologize for any sort of headache I've caused you.

@Liliya, we most definitely will if time permits! Also... I got several good laughs from that character of yours. Definitely lookin' forward to being able to test myself against your writing talent.

I'm gonna need people to stop posting characters for a brief amount of time. I'm pretty inexperience and I have not much time to consult with the judge for this event. If you are interested feel free to post. But some thing need to be sorted out first, I'll have to re-review characters sorry about that.

In short, this is not a sign up until otherwise noted.

Hello there! I am interested in this, but I've a single point of contention - the obfuscation of light within the rules. While I understand the qualms with it presented, I can't agree with the decision to wholly void a widely used combat application based only on the issues presented for several reasons. The most glaring is that if light is disallowed, then why is 'Shadow/Darkness' not disallowed in conjunction? It is just as easily abusable being an omnipresent source of power, having no reliable default speed, and being able to be equally instaneous and 'invisible' in the hands of a crafty user. It seems this rule exists more due to a personal issue stemming from anecdotal cases rather than objective fairness. I suppose my overarching argument is that all elements when taken to and beyond their logical extremes have OP potential. Rather than wholly barring an element, why not specifically disallow those things you find to be 'cheap' or unfair with it?

Just food for thought.

@Nafear
I'm interested, though this would be my first time doing an arena rp. I'll be working on my character, hopefully it will be up soon.

Also, you said mental attacks would be banned. Would something like that be okay if direct physical contact was required (I was thinking something like a melee attack, but actual effects would be a mental rather than physical injury)?

There can always be another tournament organized. A new year tournament? Perhaps not as overtly grimdark.
