    There's no reason for blind psi-lords when they can use telepathy, body language, write stuff down.

    I doubt psi-lords telepathy has any effect on robots, that's a downside if you want to chat with robots.

    Re: Deathworlds' Universe Quest

    Come on @secondpassing ! I believe in you!

    Start jotting notes down of what you want and then look at which race would refine the skills you want to use.

    Otherwise just pick a race you think would be fun, make a back story and fill in the traits later.

    The thing about character creation that always stumps me is I think of ways to make the 'best' character.

    But in this game there is no character better than another. They're all unique.

    Re: Deathworlds' Universe Quest

    Also, just thought I'd add in a few more traits:

    Lockpick
    Pickpocket
    I'm assuming programming takes care of code cracking

    I'm assuming Elusive is the same as Sneak, and also adds critical when not spotted?

    Luck is interesting because I'd imagine it being increased chance of success and decreased chance of failure, but I think you see it as increased chance of critical by +1 and deceased chance of failure by 1? Maybe?

    Re: Deathworlds' Universe Quest

    Example Character:

    Name: Richard Klarim
    Race: Human (-2), Male
    Traits:
    Psionic (+2), (Energetics, Telekinesis)
    Psychic Adept (+1)
    Xenophobic (-2) (Scared of Aliens)
    Lone Wolf (+1)
    Military (+2)
    Light Cybernetic Augmentation (+1)
    Charismatic (+1)
    Responsive (+2)
    Eagle Eye (+1)
    Scientist (+1)
    Stubborn (+1)
    Visual Artist (+1)

    Background: Richard Klarim (Codename Psion) was the first human to have ever been recorded using psionic abilities. At the age of 23 (before he developed Psionic abilities) he was the top sharpshooter in the United Earth's Military. Shortly after the Awakening Richard accidently telekinetically shoved one of his bunker mates into a wall during a card game, and killed him. This has caught the attention of the Military's research division, and was shortly shipped off to a research colony that studied Xenobiology. Richard went through endless horrific tests, to see what made his abilities "tick". A year later, an insidious alien has broken out of the facility, and disguised itself as one of the researchers, and slowly started to infest each researcher into a horrific monstrosity. Psion broke out, unknowing what has happened to some of the researchers. After encountering one of the aliens, Psion went on a psychotic break and murdered each of the researchers, in cold blood.

    This has all happened around the year 0 AA, this makes Psion approximately 121 years old, however he has not aged a bit. As a side effect of his tests, his cells are rejuvenating at an extraordinary rate, effectively making him immortal. He has been wondering the galaxy, working as a mercenary for hire ever sense.
    Lockpick is a skill gained through combined trait aspects, and practice.
    Pickpocket is a trait that can be tied in with elusive.
    Elusive is more or less the same as sneak. And in all practicality it can add a critical when you hit someone in their weakspot, which is easier to do when they don't know you are there.

    Luck is an increased chance of success, decreased chance of failure.

    Re: Deathworlds' Universe Quest

    *edited my backstory a bit

    I'd really like to see a demon who makes a deal with a Dragonkin weak/intelligent/charismatic to achieve their goal in exchange for their soul via inherent Magic Wielder/Demonology. That'd be a pretty fun backstory.

    E.g.
    Race: Dragonkin (+4)
    Inherent Traits: Magic Wielding/Demonology, Mentally Unstable (while in draconic form), Hunter, Beserker (while in draconic form)
    Trait 1: Psychopathy (+1)
    Trait 2: Charismatic (+1)
    Trait 3: Silver Tongue (+1)
    Trait 4: Magic Wielding/Mind Magic Control (+1)
    Trait 5: Lucky (+1)
    Trait 6: Intelligent (+3)
    Trait 7: Weak (-2)

    Re: Deathworlds' Universe Quest

    Oh, Frog, each species is inherently capable of speaking English, which is the common language used throughout the universe. However the following playable races have their own language: Ral'kan, Demons, Jakurn? (if so no one knows it) and Dragonkin. Mechanical species can also speak Binary, which is the 2nd most common language used throughout the universe.

    EDIT: The race and traits lists are completed, please review them once more before submitting your character.

    Interesting. Who knows what languages Rick's books were in or what Rick spoke. Butter Sanchez kind of has no way of knowing since he's never left the lab so he doesn't know what is normal. How did Rick die? Who knows what was in Rick's box? How did Butter Sanchez actually come into existence? Was Rick the real creator? Was Rick a magic user? What was Rick up to? Can Rick be brought back? Such questions! :-D

    Just thought of the classic Gladiator backstory.
    Imprisoned player is now a slave forced to fight in an arena.
    Could easily be any species background story, including Jakurn.

    I see new races! The Darksteel and Cyberoids look like they could relate to Butter Sanchez! Awesome!

    Now we just need more players - the character creation process is almost always the freezing point.

    Re: Deathworlds' Universe Quest

    One last change was made to mass's of the Ral'Kan and the Jakurn.

    I severely underestimated the weight of the Jakurn, if an average Jakurn (10 meters tall and 2500 kilograms) were to actually exist, they would be mostly bones. I upped their weight to 10 thousand metric tons after taking a look at several D&D giant weight estimation guides. Now, if you were actually to see a Jakurn, you would shit yourself.

    Ral'Kan's weight was doubled, because as an insectoid derived species, they don't have the same density as "fleshy" races, but I felt that their 1000 kg weight was pretty lowball.

    EDIT: I goof'd by forgetting a variable in the equation, Jakurn should actually be around 14 metric tons T-T

    Lol, that's 10 million kilos o_O
    That's like more than 71 full grown blue whales put together while only being a third of the blue whale's length in height, basically the same height of a blue whale. This thing has to then span about 40 times the radius of a blue whale while basically maintaining the height of a blue whale.

    That's more than 166 King Kong's combined at King Kong's largest

    That's not just a monster, it's a one man amorphous blob army.

    I can't even begin to imagine that back story:
    Hi, I was playing hide and seek, fell asleep for eons and now I can't find anyone. How has no one found me yet???

    *Edit* Looooooool!!! Nevermind then :-P

    *ok ok - so it's like 1.3 times the size of the largest elephant and 2.5 X the height - or 1.3 the height vs. Length of largest elephant. That more manageable. It's 1.3x the worlds largest elephant standing up.

    Re: Deathworlds' Universe Quest

    Name: Cicely Roholam
    Race: Human (-2), Female
    Traits:
    -3 Blind
    +1 Advanced Hearing
    -2 Weak
    -1 Weak Willed
    -1 Feeble
    +1 Efficiency
    -2 Pacifist
    +1 Scientist
    +1 Loremaster
    +1 Physiologist
    +1 Psychologist
    +1 Biologist
    +1 Xenobiologist
    -1 Anthrophobia
    +1 Empathy
    +1 Dishonorable
    -2 Public Enemy #1
    -2 Insanity
    +5 Dimensional Awareness
    +2 Psionic
    +3 Psi-Lord {Telepathy, Telekinesis, Foresight}
    +2 Mild Cybernetic Augmentation {she dreams in color, spinal cord port}


    Backstory: Cicely was born into the very wealthy Roholam family. What they did for a living she never told me, I don’t think she ever cared, nor was she old enough to think about it. They— her father, mother, and numerous maids and manservants lived in a sizeable house sitting atop a hill overlooking a city. As far back as she ever remembered, she had a spinal cord port in the back of her neck. For a couple of years, she lay happily connected to the family's computer. When it's satellite portion moved around with it’s many sensors, she would move around with it. She says these were some of the happiest moments of her life. As she roved about, her mother would come to pick her up and congratulate her.

    “Aw.. Look how cute she is.” Her mother would mumble, staring at the frail little body she had. Cicely never described her mother as caring, loving, or even animated. It makes me wonder what sort of family life she ever had, and why she thought this time was so happy to her.

    Whatever she thought of this time in her life, it was not to last. She sent out a drone one day, in an attempt to find out where her father had gone. The story she tells me is always different, but always the same. I never have to guess as to what horrors she saw. She forcibly ripped the networking cable out of her neck, and sent herself into shock and tears. Never again did she touch the cord that gave her vision, nor did she look at her parents the same way. After crying herself to sleep, she retreated to the far corners of the mansion, huddled and away from the outside world.

    Life in a corner is rather boring. Cicely quickly learned to pick up books to pass the time. After she read what her family’s library had to offer on many subjects, she learned to interface with the computer, albeit reluctant to touch anything mechanical. The inner curiosity drives some people further than others, and Cicely passed by months of human interaction and replaced it with what a computer could offer. Understandably, her parents grew worried and confused as to why she chose to shut herself in, and decided to force her to “play” with the kids in the village.

    Cicely would have none of it. And apparently, the other young folk in the village had a mutual feeling. They had never seen her before. Upon seeing that she was blind and how she lived in luxury, the other kids shuffled away from her and became quiet whenever she would pass by. In time, the parents grew tired of sending a resistant girl outside with her maids. They also grew quite a bit busier, and their attention was then drawn away.

    In her adolescent years, she was sent numerous tutors. Each of which were rejected. Cicely had already learned what they had taught her. So what use is a tutor for anything? As her parents soon began to see how hiring tutors was a useless endeavor, she was soon sent to school where they taught peasants. Cicely avoided all interactions with her classmates. And they treated her like a curse. Her prideful teachers were enraged by her attitude in school, and her seeming disdain for education.

    Fortunately, Cicely would find a friend in one of her maids. One of them, Idalene had been assigned to her when Cicely was an infant. She had been separated from her biological family after some sort of fiasco and then taken in as a servant by the Roholams. Even if she had to uphold her duties, most of the time, she kept her distance from the difficult child. One day, whilst Cicely was sleeping on a grassy hilltop, Idalene’s curiosity got the better of her and approached. Startled, Cicely reached out with everything to find out what had come near her, and a wisp of a touch brushed against Idalene’s consciousness... and the rest was history.

    Notes: I thought of a character, matched her up with the traits she would have- the ones that seemed obvious, got carried away, ended up having 21 traits '-' Still trying to figure out what sub-personality to give her to flesh her out. Is she good/evil? Is she selfish, or does she actually have a good heart? What would happen if I gave her psychopathy instead of empathy? Choices choices~

    Re: Deathworlds' Universe Quest

    I'm psyched you went for insanity/inter dimensional awareness + borg

    Those traits are nuts.

    The insanity awareness combo is a very strong unknown benefit that would match with a nice Rick surrogate for me.

    The Borg trait with my repairs, forging, augmentation etc. will be awesome.

    If you want to go full borg, I could still rebuild you with magic enhancements to a great degree where the negative effects of advanced Borg are negated.

    *edit* been thinking through my character- my synergy with anything machine is big. That said, I could make a magical ships with magical machines and weapons from scratch and any captain/officers/crew could easily round it out.

    Re: Deathworlds' Universe Quest

    Here's my real character. Tell me if I have more points to spend or need anything fixed.



    Name:
    Junstav Gastein

    Dwarf, Male



    Traits:

    Military
    Durable
    Strong
    Unstoppable

    Biologist
    Xenobiologist
    Physiologist
    Programmer

    Heroic Compulsion
    Compulsive
    Insanity

    [Food]Addict
    Lightning Rod



    Background :

    Background:
    In 2096 a hidden colony was established on planet Nova Eduxa, first planet of the twin star solar system Twinovalis.
    The close planet is cooled down by the intense gravity and radiation, allowing life to grow.
    Radiation and gravitation has reduced mankind into a new sub race, the Eduxan Dwarves, who founded the Stormhammer Clan Empire.
    They were a very relaxed race who did not participate in the war of purity, but as the war went at its peak they declared war on the third planet Prime Kadin in 2120 to annex it.
    The failed annexation attack on Prime Kadin has caused the entirety of Stormhammer Clan to fall as their own planet went under siege.
    In hope of keeping their culture, they sendt a convoy ship to a human planet in asyl.
    One of the dwarves of Stormhammer Clan, a certain Junstav Gastein, were part of the young militia team, the unfortunate events has lead him to become a sole survivor of his home town.
    Due to the traumatic events of his home town and loss of family, Junstav has had his mind grown unstable, one of the things that keep him somewhat stable is the tasty cuisine.

    He blames himself by saying that he could've done better and thus has grown to become a perfectionist.
    What more could one become a perfectionist, by becoming a skilled scientist!
    During his years as a scientist, he became an excellent biologist and xenobiologist, dedicating his time for biological improvements.
    Unsatisfied with his biological improvements of his body, he decided to take it up to eleven by augmentating some of his body.
    When he has become augmented, he decided to learn programming to take advantage of machinery and maybe one day upgrade himself.
    One eventful day, a child came to his lab thinking it was a playground ruining it all, Junstav has grown the paranoia of children leading to the certain incident known as "Child X" which has lead to the death of a curious child.

    Now at age of thirty and having his lab lost to repo's, he has decided that he needed an adventure in hope of becoming the new crowned king of Stormhammer Clan and once again bring glory to Nova Eduxa, but how...? There's also the hunt for his lost brother in arms.



    Appearance :

    Junstav is a rather pale dwarf, moderate height for a dwarf.
    The brown hair reaches to his shoulders and an ever so magnificent beard reaches down to his knees.
    A red war tattoo in the shape of lightning covers his left side of face.
    His teeth is even more white than himself, his skin is perfectly clean.
    The voice is dark and has a charming stereotype scottish accent, a tradition by the Stormhammer.

    You are missing the efficiency trait, Compulsive is exclusive with Efficiency, meaning that you require efficiency to have compulsive. Other then that, everything is fine, total of 10 allocated points atm.

    Hmm, Efficiency is +1.
    Can I also add in arachnophobia to give place for the Efficiency?

    The similarity between Arachnids and the Ral'Kan would most likely trigger your character. Arachnophobia will be a solid -2
