    My deadly workload will be somewhat lessened come the weekend so that's as good a start point as any.

    WE went with the blowing the runes off the silk thing because, how else would you use it? Anything else I can think of would be really cliche and generic, especially if magic's not limited and anyone can learn it - THAT I'm not too keen on. We were hoping to have this somewhat-general fantasy, but with a slightly original twist that will limit character's super-abilities and hinder attempts at god-modding.

    If this is going to turn out to be some generic and cliche RPG, then neither Emily nor I will be participating - we just have too much other stuff on our hands, including our own books-in-progress.

    of course we don't want it generic and there will have to be a limitation on magic use, I just find myself sniggering when I think of someone stuffing a patch of silk in their mouth and spluttering at the enemy.

    I'm fine with the system, just a little confused by it. Therefore, my character will not be a magic user. Which I'm sure is just fine by you guys.

    For once, I want to be the crazy person in the RPG. :faceit:

    To be honest I'll probably be the same as I like the rest of the system, we can put you magic system to the vote if we want.



    Also people need to remember met started the vote on having human sub-species dwarf-esque people, and the panel have yet to say yay or nay

    They're not stuffing it in their mouth, they're just holding it up TO their mouth so they can blow on it to release the runes :p I like it 'cause we can pretend it has to do with their genes, and only the people who wrote the individual runes can use them.

    But, if you have a better idea, we're all ears :p

    Bleed on it, rather than hacking on it. Blood is a more reliable source.

    The magic system is pretty creative, but I generally don't use magic either way.

    With this system in place, it's going to be pretty hard to have a god-modding mage, at the very least

    And a very basic storyline would be nice, so I can figure out what we're after and what my guy's occupation etc. would be.

    I'm going to need it for the stockpile in my underground bunker. This RPG sounds like it will have a war.

    Alright, read through it all, and I like the look of the magic system, and the general structure of things so far. I'll get my character written up tonight

    all votes will be silent ones fur future references.


    Having had the day to stew over the magic system its grown on me somewhat, if people are happy with it we can use it, unless there are significant complaints, then we'll put it to the vote.



    Also the poll on dwarves seems pretty much a 'no' sorry met.

    So rike KTQT stirr needs her curtule anthlo and stuff.

    Engrish done for the day. Translated:

    So like kTQT still needs her culture and anthro and stuff. We have basic character profiles written, but she wants to add that stuff 'cause she's a silly anthro major.
