Has anyone looked at the later RPGs based on the FASERIP system? I believe there is G-Core and maybe one other. They may have an alternative approach to how to handle/randomize range of power levels for the characters.
Just started looking at G-Core, and they do seem to have a solid take on the character building issue. It's still random rolls for power levels, but each origin has a number of Free Points that can be used to nudge things around. Plus there are Flaws and Weaknesses that can be taken to add overall bonus Ranks to buff/customize the character.
It's only $2.50 on DriveThru RPG, so it's not going to cost a lot to check out.
As for the other FASERIP game descendant...I haven't found another one.
@Nein I'm dubious. The game is weighted massively female (I think there was a large scene yesterday where something like 8 of the 9 PCs were female) in a hobby where that's not particularly true in general (MUing has more women than other kinds of gaming but not to such overwhelming a degree) and in a genre that itself skews heavily male in terms of the readership.
Plus, a lot of the masturbatory power level arguments, the obsessive discussions of what happened in issue #X of run Y under Z writer... I dunno. The tone is very masculine to me. There are definitely real women playing women (the super clingy ones discussed already are almost certainly female played, since they're mostly harassing male PCs) but I'm pretty sure a ton of the lesbian coven is dudes.
Was referencing your timeskip-on-same-game concept. I figured you might want to chime in on that front as it could work with this kind of game. (It strikes me as something that could be exceptionally well-suited to it.)
Edit: P.S. Totally saving that to warn tag victims in advance some time.
Tutorials and advice on how to get things done on your game.
To add on to @skew's excellent advice, note that you can order your Events. Processing starts at the top and goes down, so if you want your name highlight event to be always happening, make sure you have the 'Continue' checked and your name-highlight rule at the bottom of the list.
Ideas for improving the forum or questions about how things work.
I like the idea of a MU* Craigslist (sans....whatever one finds inappropriate). My knowledge/talents of MU* building is just ideas and talking out logistics. If people need an ideasman, I'm happy to provide :D
Dragons are little of all of it: They started out as beasts , that were tamed, and then began to be bred for intelligence ( and size, both large and small- some rich lady wanted a lap dragon of course). Most are 'controlled' with magic. They've got a variety of intelligence levels, so magical collars are more about 'spacial awareness for the less intelligent ones. Human-intelligence dragons are deemed a kind of 'citizen'.
I would say yes there are nations that are rising up currently. The city of 'Kirag' is one such region ( where the game would be based/ is based).
Slavery? Its not restricted to color or ethnicity, but is based based around... something else. People started created 'Slave lines' for particular duties, but magically reinforcing them. (So the rich and powerful got 'more fancy', while the slaves got more 'practical'). It got hammered about 200 years ago, so its more 'classism', in Napoleonic dress than anything. People pinging you for your heritage mostly: Got a lot of courtesan slave-blood in (and so look extra gorgeous?) Someone's probably gonna remark on it, and might try to peg for work as a Courtesan, not that its wrong to use it, but its sterotpying to the extreme.
Plenty of Industry relating to dragons. (Dragons are measured in Feet), so the Largest is about fifteen foot tall and 30ft long, (wing spans vary, if they are flying-varities, the utmost would likely be around 160ft.) If not, Wings are gonna be all over the map. (small, non fuctional ect).
Noblity is 'earned', its a meritocracy, as is Royalty ( its a combination, the Divine Right, comes from specical Oracles and confirmation via sacred objects. Each House has one. So becoming Peerage, says: You have some that Oracles have seen worthy.
