Pffff...The quintessential Mary-Sue.

...Ironically, one event that took place with the original Suzu(The aforementioned Magician Girl), was a spark-off with Marisa. Using the party's tank as the test dummy. (He's the chew toy, and the butt of every joke. It helps that he's insanely durable. And emphasis on 'dummy'.)
Needless to say, Marisa won that one at the time. There'll be a rematch once things actually get started back up again. (Read: When things get properly scheduled)
Needless to say, she also falls strongly into the Heroic Sociopath category, much like Richard from LFG, or Belkar from OoTS. But with an added helping of Vaarsuvius(OoTS).
Though there's more, but that's just a general overview of her personality. (She's also the second strongest 'Fragment' that resides in my mindscape.)
(She also has a strong dislike of most Crow Tengu, given their typically arrogant and cocky nature.)

I appear to have misplaced my excrements.



Anyway, if anyone on this thread fills out the aforementioned character sheet, I'd like to receive it so I can compile them and stuff.

Plus I love reading about new characters...

I'll see what I can do over the night. Shouldn't take too much finagling to make sense of things with the help of the basic guide yeah?
I just need to find out how many stat points a specific class starts with to customize and such, and go from there.

I've already set all stats to 2, and you have 12 points to spend wherever you want.

The rest is pretty much all about characterization, so understanding the (weird) rules of the game isn't necessary anyway.

Yeah, though exceptions can be made, nobody expects the Spanish inquisition magicians to have a high Might stat. A Byakuren-like-buffing-magician could work, but not a randomly bodybuilder-like magician.

Byakuren's the notable exception, given her heritage as a Monk. Which naturally means she's just as capable of busting heads as your average musclebound bloke.

Oni fall under that category of 'average musclebound bloke', given how most male Oni are regarded as total bricks.
(As compared to the female Oni, who are generally more Amazonian in nature. If Yuugi's anything to go by.)

Okay then, how about a CELESTIAL skull for reference? :getdown: I always figured oni were at minimum as tough/strong as a well-built human.

EDIT: Also Suika is a loli-midget but apparently hits harder with her fists than Yuugi so let's just go with "Byakuren hits really hard" because common sense will only avail us so far in Gensokyo. :getdown:

Well, it's also been shown that as of right now(until others are revealed), Suika was pretty much the de-facto leader of The Four Mountain Deva. So her ass-kickingness comes par for the course. Plus, Two-horned Oni. Rare as fuck, even among the already rare Oni.

I think your thinking of Shaolin monks, Byakuren's a BUDDHIST Monk, and as far as I'm aware, Buddhism doesn't teach any kind of martial arts :P

Actually, Monks in general know at least a little. They did get accosted by less-scrupulous bandits on their travels after all. So it's a common thing for them to know at least a little.
That, and the primary religion for Shaolin varied between Taoism and Buddhism. So it's not too much of a stretch to figure she picked up at least a little along the way. Monks in general were all about being both physically, spiritually, and mentally fit. "The Body is a Temple", as some say.

Allow me to make a notepad version. It'll be attached to this post in a minute or two.

Ah, that'll make it much easier on me as well. I already had a similar idea, but it didn't get much further than showing the stats, and how much of each point that's pertinent at creation is left to work with. (CP excluded, because I don't think we've gotten the ruling on that, or if it even IS different from the guidebook.)

THE YUUKA TRAIN HAS NO BRAKES.



Also, that is why you don't use fire magic in the vicinity of the Garden of the Sun.

And yeah, monks often picked up at least some judo basics for self-defense.

As for the game...Hey, Ikari, you think you can post the charsheet materials here as an attachment for me to work with?

That's alliterator for you. He's an oddball like that. I remember when I first saw that while browsin' danbo for Yuuka images for a little project I finished a while back.
My reaction? "Shit. Somebody dun goofed. I'm outta here!"

Either way, that text file's a major help. Maybe you could rework CP by improving the gains from using an FP. Because the guide says it's 2 CP for every 1 FP.
I don't know about you, but some folks like to start off with a relatively reliable spellcard. Marisa in particular comes to mind.

That's thing; So many possibilities;

- Keep it as it is right now with some minor tweaks

- Remove CP completely and substitute it for FP

- Gain CP through other ways

- Increase CP gains

I think a combination of the last two would work quite well. Increase CP gains by trading in FP, and make it so that you can also get CP for similar reasons as FP. For example, a low level quest might reward some FP, and maybe the same amount in CP. or a little less.

Removing CP altogether would just make FP even more of a valuable commodity.

Hmm...

I have an idea, tell me what you think.

Cp would still exist, and would be traded as 2 cp for 1 fp.

PLUS! The player would get 5 CP at each level up, making his spellcards grow stronger even if he doesn't spend his FP on them.

That could work! But I think that to allow for stuff on par with what some of the stronger ones can do(since I know some of us will want to pit our strength against the shining example of their chosen race for the hell of it(because you don't need common sense in gensokyo!), and not have them have to hold anything back), it miiight also make sense to have CP as an occasional quest reward too. Or as brownie points of a sort for pulling something off with aplomb. Like say, managing to outfox Ran, or out-charisma Remilia...Eh, or out-crazy Flan.

Yeaaaah, like one can be normal EXP just for getting something done, the other is like style points. Or something.

Or maybe fandom points can be spent on external things and function as fate/karma/whatever dice, though I think we already have enough luck-fudgey mechanical things.

I'm rambling.

True, that's indeed a very good idea.

*snaps his fingers*

How about awarding CP by accomplishing bonus goals set by the GM when doing a certain mission for someone or something?
