Now then, some other questions...:

A) What element would lightning be?

B) How many Fandom Points do you think Mjolnir would cost?

C) What's a good time to Skype later this week so I can make sure I know what the Hell I'm doing?

1) Lightning would be Lightning. It's a legit element. It's mostly effective against water, but weak against earth.

2) With our conversation, about 9 FP.

3) I'll be on more often, so probably any nights.

Oh, that reminds me. Here is that online tabletop program I mentioned in my first post. You can download it for free and play around with it. It's pretty barebones, but it allows for some graphical representation of what's going on, and it does have an in-game chat and customizable dice rolling scripts.

Okay, I should be free tomorrow. So I think we can start the group side story tomorrow. Those who aren't ready can tell me and I'll arrange so that they can still play later (I'll think of someway to add them in~) if you happen to miss it. The second incident should be available soon as well, probably after the side story is complete.

Probably from 4:30p.m. to 3:00a.m. will be the time (in my time zone) when the session will take place if nothing comes up suddenly. It is about 9:00p.m. as I write this, so you guys can figure out the time for yourselves by doing the math.

Alright. (Although I think 3:30 AM might be a bit late for me.)

May or may not show up.

So I've been thinking up a character, and it's a beast youkai. A lion, specifically. But I can't for the life of me think of any special "Animalistic Ability" that she should have. Would anyone like to help me figure something out?

Edit: Many thanks to Genso for this:

We shall use chatzy. Although we usually have skype on too sometimes to ask questions and such. I will make a room soon. Just hold on a moment.

EDIT: http://www.chatzy.com/64230146519256

Those who still want to join/missed the first session can still do so as long as you guys make it to the next session. I will probably be busy this week, so I will try to find a date when I'm free and tell you guys.

Sent my message too late. Damn it.

ANYWAY.

I'd say -4, since we're talking about a whole dice re-roll.



Secondly, I'll start posting actual informative things here. Remember the big whole sections I did before? More to come. Involving Ex-Modes, fixing the older stuff (spellcards for example), editing the older ones, changing some very important rules, and the new traits, much similar to the original pdf's.

I thought maybe Genso answered you, but I guessed wrong... As much as I owe you, you may want to read the rest of that post.


And now an important announcement. As I've tried to re-work things, I realized that the version I ended up making is far from perfect, and still quite a distance away from great.

I'm really proud (although it probably isn't that justified) of what I did with Tales of Phantasmal Land, but I can't stand an unfinished project, and I can't change things as there is too many players currently finished with their characters. The solution to this is more than obvious.

I thus hereby give up my GM duties for now, and intend on re-working on the project, and making that darned pdf I spoke of a long while ago. Genso's version of the game is pretty successful and does a nice job at making plot-twists and such. It's not my thing, but I'm glad that it works out for people. I've been saying a lot lately that I shouldn't GM much, because to be frank, I'm not good at it, but that doesn't make me improve. I'm just gonna re-work on it and turn this rough beta game into a better project, all while trying to learn more about GMing.

I got to see the problems in what I thought was close to finished, and I'm thankful that Genso made his own game with it so that the current players can keep playing, and that other people can also apply for it. I'm not sure I'll make a thread about it, but I'm certain that hosting games isn't my role anymore and I gladly resign my place.

Finally, I'm taking a break from roleplaying or failing to participate in Genso's version, (I seriously am horrible on this point) and I'm going to be re-working what I've done as well as what Tales of Phantasmal Land did. My true goal isn't really to spread it around MoTK, and I don't think I'll be making a thread about it. What I'd like is getting a few people to work with, as partners, instead of throwing out my ideas on a forum and screwing up.

Thanks to everyone who participated, and to those I didn't manage to help to make them do so. Also, special thanks to you Al; Without you, none of this would have happened.

Special note about Merodi; You can go with Genso's version and finish your character's details to join his game, as I won't be doing much of that right now. I owe you, though, so I'll keep ya a number one place if my project ever works out.

Double post because I dropped Da Bomb a bit too roughly and quickly.

I'll make a few things clear;

- The side-stories are still going to be on while I work on the guidebook and take a break. I'd be crazy to ban the whole thing!

- This is nowhere near a permanent "Whelp, this was fun, kthxbai" thing! I'm just switching from making this game as playable as possible for now and fixing things along the way, to actually making a clear, established rulebook. I was going insane with all the questions and flaws I saw in the project, and I need to think them out instead of giving stupid solutions to fix it as quick as possible.

- I'll be GMing one day. And I'll be better at it, damn it~!

Send me PMs if you really want answers about things that are unclear, because I don't want anyone thinking this is a Game Over to that project. I'm merely using a continue and restarting the stage!

Wow, it's been quite a while since the last post. We talk a lot more on skype now instead of here, but I guess it would be good to post her occasionally. Anyway, contact one of our skypes and we'll talk about it since Ikari seems to disappear from the face of the earth occasionally. The next one will definitely happen during early April if not earlier than that.

Hmm, perhaps. I added my skype info to my profile, so just contact me and I'll see what I can do.

EDIT: It's better to contact Ikari for stuff so yeah, just contact him. As for what I meant for "I'll see what I can do." I meant that I will try to speed things up so the players can play the next incident already.

*Dynamics entry into the thread*

Actual update! The entire stat, spell and battle system are being heavily revamped right now. I'm still working out the details with my trusty acolyte, Alliterator, and we're hoping to bring a whole new, much better battle system.

Things that doesn't work and will be removed;

- Dodge and Aim stats are stupidly exploitable.
- Having two stats (Will and Finesse) tied to Aim and Dodge makes them absolutely necessary, preventing GOOD character builds.
- Battles are more or less repetitive.
- Will is a ridiculously useless stat.
- 4 stats out of 6 aren't used concretely in battle.
- Graze roll is the bane of everything ever.

So, for now nothing much can be done, buyt once we're done making it all functional and all, we'll introduce it publicly.

Also, coming soon in the realm of whole-cloth additions to the game, Formations! A.k.a. a way to properly replicate the Prismriver/Mischievious Fairies/Toyo no Miko fights, and more importantly a way to make group fights actually interesting instead of a nightmarishly tedious dice slog.

No, I meant Will.

Resolution protects against wounds and statuses, (and while it's use is limited), it's nowhere near as useless as Will- Out of battle, that is.

I dare anyone to find me three uses *out of combat* for Will.

Hint: You'll fail.
