Oslecamo, what did you think of my explanation for the binder refluffing? I'll repost it here (and add to it/ actually start on the mechanics of making the character tonight/this weekend).
[[Name]] was created as part of an experimental program by [[Government]] in order to try and gain an edge in the field of training new recruits. Making living soldiers that are "augmented" is all well and good, but it can take decades for them to truly come into their own as pilots.
And thus the [[Program Name]] Program was born. Subjects are injected with self-replicating nanobots at an early age that infest their bodies, focusing especially on taking root within the brain. They can be programmed to grant the subjects abilities from the greatest mech pilots of our time such as [[this guy]] and [[some other person? I don't know, I've never played a game/watched an anime with this type of mecha]]. Due to their self-replication abilities the nanobots are also capable of creating some of the more iconic equipment of said pilots.
Looks pretty good. Feel free to come up with original names for legendary pilots and the program, I'll gladly add them to the setting mythos.
Some sugestions tough:
-Lena, young princess-pilot halfling of Satera, restored her Orakian kingdom on the Landen System trough her graceful skill on the frontlines.
-Rulakir, a bloodthirsty but highly skilled orc mecha mercenary of unknown origin. His own family was killed long ago in long forgoten wars, and his hatred has kept him alive for centuries before falling near the end of the Devastation War.
Transferring my question over: Dragonfire Inspiration is definitively banned, right?Well, if you pick just dragonfire inspiration and no other bardic music buffers, I'll allow it.
... does that mean I have to choose between Lingering Song and Dragonfire Inspiration? :-\
Right, crafting question.
How much would a mecha-sized flask of acid cost?
Much more than what a 1st level character could afford.
