  1. 3 would be comparable to 4. Off the top of my head the only person that I know of that is doing something similar right now is, @Ruski
  2. Gaia, I beg of you, please empower my body with your holy might so that I may smite this treacherous heathen in your name. -no answer.- "Guess I'm done... well played." - Van
  3. I believe the thread you are looking for is this one. @princeben07
  4. Well, there are probably a few ways you could do this. 1). You could solo it yourself. 2). You could get some friends to do it with you. 3). You could request a storyteller to act as a DM/GM and guide you through the process. 4). You can see if you could join someone else's RP that is doing something similar.
  5. Yes and no, either or, both. That is to say that if you want to go through the full training in RP form, it can be done. Otherwise it can be backstory.
  6. After talking to @supernal it was brought to my attention that creating your own class might be too complicated or too much for some people and they'd rather just have a generic class to play with.

      Sure, I need to take care of some other obligations first. To include a few fights that I've already obligated myself too. However, once my schedule has cleared up some, I'd be happy to play fisticuffs with you.

Idolizing his older brother, Rex enlisted in the Terran military three years after Vincent.

Fortunately, magitech augmentations were able to restore the vast majority of his functionality. Initially interested in flying Raptors (Terran Aircraft), Rex was disqualified due to the extent of his training injuries. However, the augmentations made him a perfect candidate for the Terran Space Program, since they allowed him survive the voids hostile environment. However, due to remarkably low test scores, Rex was not qualified to work in the Space Programs Research and Development division, like his brother. Love struck with the idea of exploring space, Rex was left with only one choice.... join T.E.S.T. In some strange twist of fate Vincent not only went to space before Rex but ended up trapped on the Aires I. T.E.S.T.

  15. So after some consideration, I decided to add some clarification to the user guide. So congrats on directly impacting content. Semi-Auto - One round per action. Burst Fire - Fires 5 rounds per action Full Auto - Firearms uses bullets/energy until enemy is dead, per action. Break Action - Action is used to fire and then weapon must use an action to reload, before firing again. Mundane Weapon specifications: Melee - Infinite use, no penalties. [Base 5/single target] No accuracy check. Small Arm - Example pistol. Maximum capacity 30 rounds semi-auto/Burst. [Base 10/ single target] Moderate accuracy Light Rapid - SMG/Assault Rifle/LMG. Maximum capacity 1000 rounds. Full auto/Burst. [Base 1/single target] Low accuracy Heavy Weapon - Example Railgun. Maximum Capacity 10 rounds, Break action [Base 20/Single target with splash damage]. High Accuracy AOE Weapon - Grenade/rocket/missile launcher/Shotgun. Maximum capacity 4 rounds. Break action. [Base 50. Multi-target] No accuracy check. Magic Weapon Specifications: Similar to mundane weapons but are not limited by finite ammunition source. Magic weapons are considered more powerful than mundane and include magical effects. For each magical effect added to the weapon +1 energy cost. Melee - Uses 2 energy per attack. [Base 7/single target] No accuracy check Small Arm - Uses 5 energy per shot.

Combination weapons stats and costs are achieved via averaging out the stats and costs of the base types composing it. Example: A Pistol that fires exploding rounds would be a combination Small Arm and AOE weapon. It would retain the ability for semi auto fire, have a total ammo capacity of 17, and a base power of 15 and not have to undergo an accuracy check. Spell effects include: Freezing - Enemy is stuck in place for 3 rounds. Igniting - Enemy takes 5 points of damage per action in sustainable environments.
