PostSubject: Drac's Tweeking   Thu Apr 01, 2010 12:17 pm

Okay, so... I tried out a method of strengths and weaknesses that Edward mentioned... I'll do Lauren's later, but I started with Draconus since he's a simpler character. C&C?


Strenghts-

Natural:
-Good dexerty (in his working arm)

Learned:
-Chess playing
-Knowledgable in magical know-how, history, and supernatural lore
-Linguistic (Elvish, Draconic, Vionese)
-Charisma

Supernatural:
-N/A, the entire Immanus feeling a kinship to dragons really... does... NOTHNG to Drac' in any way, shape, or form.

Magic:
-Fire magic; simple cantrips, very minor offensive flames conjured (preps: 4)
-Rose magic; simple, pretty to look at rose-summoning (preps: 3)
-Magical translation; translation of a foreign tongue into Common; must have a good grasp of the language being translated (preps: 2; might have a very small lil' ritual/preperation with objects to do correctly)

Personality:
-Intelligent, stragetic
-Diplomatic
-Polite

Weaknesses-

Natural:
-Ruined right arm (unable to use it)
-Weakened immune system
-Unable to fight well (thanks to injured arm)

Learned:
-Fear of lightning (both natural and magical)

Supernatural:
-N/A

Magic:
-Fatally allergic to all forms of magical healing
-Magical rebounds (especially with fire magic) are very common

Personality:
-Easily frustrated
-Sheltered
-Easily stressed
-Lacking in proper survival skills
-Code bound

*KNUCKLECRACK*

STRENGTHS

1. Dexterity's not a really big deal, especially since Drac' has it in ONLY ONE ARM. I'll be scorin' this one with a 0.
2. Chess playing is an awesome skill but isn't hugely offensive, useful or powerful. Another 0!
3. Knowledgestuff gets a 3 'cause of the Wizard's Guild, and Drac' might just have a handy thing or two to infer from the ore, who knows.
4. Knowing multiple languages is pretty powerful, but none of the languages Drac' knows are very common or helpful in Skuldhellir, so this one's a 2.
5. Charisma's handy! 1.
6. You told me the maximum number of preps he could cast was 6, soooo 6 for magical expertise.
7. 2 for the different schools of magic he can cast under! (Fire, and basic. Both the rose and translation spells are too generic to belong to a more specialized school, so I've grouped them together into the basic school.)
8. 1 for the personality bonuses.

Total: 15

WEAKNESSES

1. A ruined limb is fairly major. I'd give that a 5.
2. Having a weakened immune system sucks. I'd put that at about a 3.
3. Fightfail = 3
4. The magical allergy thing is also very major. That's a 5, too.
5. Rebounds would be about a 2.
6. Personality minuses are around a 3.

Total: 21

Yup he's balanced! Maybe a little underbalanced, even.

SUCCESS! *high-fives self, and then Ed's face*

Okay I did Lauren now... SHE'S the one I'm really worried about just 'cause she's so damn complicated.


Strenghts-

Natural:
-Fast running speed (sprinter; max 25 mph)
-Can fly (up to 200 feet in good health)
-Fangs, claws, & tail spikes
-Feline dexerty and agility
-Sharp feline senses (hearing, smelling, excellent darksight)

Learned:
-Reading & writing
-Basic arithmetic
-Linguist (smatterings of Vionese & North-tongue)
-Sword fighting (self taught)

Supernatural:
-Wing retraction & healing (able to heal minor wounds upon the wings)
-Inadvertant sensing of angels & demons via their auras
-Telekinesis (Preps: 0-6)
-Teleporation (Preps: 2-4)
-Psychokinesis (Preps: 0-3)
-Telepathy (0-3, according to the physical distance spanned from giver to receiver)
-Ghost sensing (0; automatically occurs as a "someone's watching you" sensation when a ghost is nearby)

Magic:
-N/A

Personality:
-Fairly polite (if a tad rough around the edges)
-Somewhat courageous
-Good common sense

Weaknesses-

Natural:
-Somewhat weakened immune system
-Not physical strong; relies on speed over strength
-Not constitutionally hearty
-Short ranged in her natural weaponry
-Near-blind in direct sunlight (ie; vision gets better the less light/more shading there is)
-Tires easily if in flight for more than an hour a day
-Wings, when out, make for more acrobatic/agile manuvers awkward to preform well

Learned:
-Phobia (torture, undead, being restrained)
-Rusty sword fighter (both due to inactivity in fighting and being self-taught)

Supernatural:
-Developes a dusional high around angels (severity intensifies via prolonged exposure)
-Developes a physical sickness (headaches, nausea, vomiting) around demons (severity intensifies via prolonged exposure)
-Gradually looses focus if powers are sustained for too long in one period
-Possibilty of lost limbs/death/coma if interrupted during more powerful psychic acts

Magic:
-Clockwork tail can feel damage sustained to it as if it were a real wound

Personality:
-Can be quite unlady-like (boisterous, loud, curses, willing to tell you "how the cow ate the cabbage")
-Catlike; gives into cleaning herself, defending territories (especially when catnip'd), making cheetah-esque noises, etc. etc.
-Can be a drinker (and HAS gotten drunk in public a few times before)
-Has a tendency to be a huge coward

Edit/random rambling: considering what Lauren IS and yet doesn't really lookit (she's about as far away as you can get from an angel/demon hybrid), could there be some weaknesses gained from that? Such as certain supernatural/magical entities being able to detect what she is?

STRENGTHS

1. Crazyspeeds would be at about a 3--handy for GTFOing across them plains, yo.
2. Flight's very useful; I'd put that at about a 4.
3. Natural weapons at 1.
4. Feline skills (all of them together, including senses) at 2.
5. Education isn't very valuable unless you're in the Wizard's Guild, which Lauren prolly won't be ever, so I'd put this at a 1.
6. Linguistskills at about a 1.
7. Swordfightingskills at a 1.
8. Wing healing at a 1.
9. Aura sensing at a 0.
10. I'm going to score her psychic abilities by subtracting her minimum preps from her maximums:
Telekineses: 6
Teleportation: 2
Psychokineses: 3
Telepathy: 3
11. Ghost sensing at a 0.
12. No major personality strengths; 0.

Total: 28

WEAKNESSES

1. Immune system fail is a 2.
2. Lack of strength and constitution is a 4.
3. Short range is a 0.
4. Blindness in sunlight is a 3.
5. Tiring is a 1.
6. Clumsiness due to wings is a 1.
7. Phobias are a 1.
8. Rusty sword skillz is a 0.
9. Highskillz is around a 2.
10. Barfskillz is also around a 2.
11. Powerfail's another 2.
12. Epic powerfail's a 4.
13. Tail's a 0.
14. Personality's a 2.

Total: 25

Well-balanced, as we all knew!

That could be a weakness, and you can list it if you like, but I would personally score it as a 0.

7. Phobias are a 2. (I imagine the restraint one might kind of kick in the tighter spots of the mines...)

Actually the restraint one was meant to be like... physically restrained. Cuffs, chains, ropes, etc. Wouldn't the mine-thing really pertain to claustrophobia instead?

XD That's the thing-- it's not really an active weakness. I like it personally, but you don't run across many demon/angel spawn hunters these days and most chars just don't give a damn when they find out. xD;


Also... I'm very glad with out the scoring for Lauren's powers turned out! Telekinesis is the highest, and teleporation is pretty much the lowest-- the thing she's really good at and kind of shoddy at, respectively! *pleased*

Hm, yeah, that'd prolly be more like claustrophobia--in which case I'd bump the phobias down to a 1. Still balanced though, teehee.
