High-End OOC thread
« on: April 26, 2013, 05:54:33 AM »
OOC stuff for the High-End players goes here.

This campaign will start today night or tommorrow at latest.
You can take longer finishing your details, but try to have the rough outlines of your character done until then.

Well, the mecha now has a fitting appearance.

Bio will be up in about... four hours, give or take. Don't have time to post anything right now.

Does this mean all our mecha are vertically squashed to the same size? :0

Roughly yes.

I'm told this might be used to make a CAST. It's written by you. Plus it names CASTs specifically. AND repeatedly.  :D According to this one at least, Cure spells work just fine.

That's what suposed to be used for making a CAST yes.

However CASTs and mechas are two diferent things. CASTs are human-sized and autonomous, mechas are massive but need pilots inside to control them. Said pilot can be a CAST.

Hm, maybe I should use one of the Evangelions as a mecha appearance? Decisions, decisions...
Wait. You didn't select this yet?

Also. I'm not sure what exactly is included in "self-buff class abilities for fighting" as far as what a character's abilities transferring to the mech goes.
Self-buff means things that grant you temporary bonuses to a stat or does it include permanent benefits, like classes granting immunities to certain types of damage, fast healing, spell resistance, pounce and so on. Might also have missed the part about it but does a mecha benefits from the pilot's magic items?
Yes to all of those except magic items. However gear that increases your own stats affects the mecha as relevant, like a belt of giant strenght/gloves of dexterity increasing the mecha's own Str/Dex score, as they're the same as the pilot's.

Quite nice fluff there BTW.

Does the "mecha weapons always provoke attacks of opportunity for firing while threatened" rule mean that abilities which allow ranged attacks to not provoke do not function for such weapons?
Yes.

Hmm...I'm a bit confused on what you're saying about what things are shared between the pilot and the mech like gear or class features and whatnot. Can you, like, throw up a quick list of the "self-buff abilities for fighting" things to clarify that? :/

No, I cannot, because that would be enough words to fill a book if not multiple ones. Instead just follow this simple rule:

-Does it apply to your own character's body ( except  size change) and it doesn't affect others? Then it applies to your mecha.

Well that still answers that entirely  :D
Thanks.

Won't it be easier to have separated character threads, one for the High-end, one for the low-end ?
"-Lady-Captain, we detect 20 hostile vessels against us,  and Erasmus Haarlock's Spear of Destiny ! What are your orders ?
-RAMMING SPEED !

final result : 6 slaughts vessels, 4 imperial frigates, 2 imperial cruisers destroyed. Haarlock sent into the warp. 0 losses. Flawless Victory.

Still got a feat to pick, and work out the exact combat stats of my mecha (does it get my natural armour bonus as well?), but this is otherwise complete.

Is there magic transparency for this campaign?

For me it's easier this way, more used to it.

Tecnically it gets your natural armor bonus. However your mecha already has a bonus of the same kind, and they don't stack.
Also the 1,5 multiplication is before adding agility bonus.

Is there magic transparency for this campaign?
Depends heavily on what you want. That's a massive can of worms. Psionics can be stoped by regular anti-magic measures. Doesn't mean however that psionics can grab whatever they want from the cleric and wizard bags of tricks.

Hmm, so it's basically me, but with different equipment. Easy enough, I suspect.

Mostly in terms of SR working against it or not.

Also, is the Birthday Cake half-golem material's special fast healing stacking with other sources of fast healing? Like the Saint's or the fast healing granted by other materials?
Could there be a martial equivalent of Fewmet/Grisgol? I'd rather use some maneuvers as an Ex ability than cast spells as such. Even though it might be stronger.

Option for Half Zodar golem added in the "main" material list.

I just noticed this like right now
Quote
Unlike normal martial disciplines, Burning Justice maneuvers do not need to be recharged, but consume energy from the mecha equal to the Maneuver's level x 5 when used. Stances do not cost any energy to maintain, but their cost must be paid when the pilot switches to it.

But do I still have to ready them to use the maneuvers if I'm using Burning Justice through Moon Vanguard?

Into the Danger Zone doesn't have such a clause, so those maneuvers energy costs are simply equal to the maneuvers level then?

That was an oversight on my part, added that clause to Into The Danger Zone, thanks for pointing it out!

Moon Vanguard has to both ready maneuvers and pay energy.

Also, IC thread should be up shortly (hopefully).

Alright.

And would Burning Justice still cost me x5 energy though if having to ready and expend those maneuvers off Vangaurd?

Huh, Amaterasu can lift about 16 tons. About five and a half as a light load. Unfortunately, keeping a small room inside a mecha does not seem a good idea. XD

You could keep a couple of elephants in the mecha. Why, you ask? Well you never know when an elephant might come in handy.
