2006-02-13 [Linn Scarlett]: *bookmarks page* will get going on this as soon as ive some spare time (re-exam economics tomorrow X_X )
2006-02-13 [Linn Scarlett]: oh and maybe we could do the class thing like: base class fighter, and then all fighter type classes under it. and Monk as base class for everything holy-and-kicki
2006-02-13 [Linn Scarlett]: and what about prestige classes? Duelists, beastmasters, dirge singers etc? (ok i know that i am mentioning drow classes :p)
2006-02-14 [Kim_Lundin]: And a short description has to be added to some of the classes. I, for example, have no idea what the Shugenja and Sohei are, and what's the difference between a Warlock and a Warmage?
2006-02-14 [Blood Raven]: some people accused the WFR of copying too much from D&D, or that's what I've heard. So I tried keeping things losse. But I'm not sure wether that will work. It would be cool though, if you could divide the abilities/tale
2006-02-14 [Kim_Lundin]: I support the idea of dividing it a bit.
2006-02-14 [Linn Scarlett]: *still in a hectic life/exam/driv
2006-02-15 [Kim_Lundin]: Heh, nutty Linn Scarlet, never thought I would see that ^_^
2006-02-15 [Linn Scarlett]: X_X no seriously ive been doing a thousand-and-o
2006-02-15 [Linn Scarlett]: so... what if the WFR is much like D&D? it's based on such systems is it not Raven? D&D-and-co haters should burn X_X
2006-02-15 [Blood Raven]: true and amen X_X
2006-02-15 [Linn Scarlett]: Inomine patris, et filliea et spiritus sanctum, amen X_X sorry couldnt resist
2006-02-16 [Kim_Lundin]: Heh, not that I understood anything about what you just said...
2006-03-11 [Blood Raven]: in name of the father, and the son and the holy spirit, amen
2006-03-11 [xido]: O.o And Amen is old hebrew, not even latin.... Amen came from Egyptian, too... as in AMEN-RA. So why they even use that line is beyond me, unless we now all worship the ancient egyptian sun god, which I guess is possible. :P
2006-03-11 [xido]: See, here's the thing about this page... it's constantly in update mode... everyone can post there ideas here if they wish... it might not have to be a D&D stat at all... that's why it includes all roleplaying methods... I can just easily see that a D&D-style method is the best approach. As for the classes, these are just to make sure that there is a diverse and informative set of stats about the basics, as well as a general description. We're not going to go into too much detail on method and rolls, etc... but we might include this info where it is necessary or applicable, especially on those 'personality' traits, like the feats which grant bonuses to skill rolls. Details like this
2006-03-11 [xido]: will be worked out as time goes on... For now, I just want an open page for concepts, and it can build from there, but I want at least enough to run a decent storyline without getting hung up on describing which skill of talent they are using when I make a call. Like if I ask someone to make a spot check, I want them to understand what that is, and why it even has a bearing on a free-form rp. I don't want to get TOO stuck on D&D stats, but I do like the basis. I don't want to over-run these pages with overtly D&D info (since it is also a copyright factor), but it is a basis I'd like to explore (and how flexible it can be to other methods).
2006-03-11 [xido]: "I, for example, have no idea what the Shugenja and Sohei are, and what's the difference between a Warlock and a Warmage?" The first two are oriental classes that are applicable to normal D&D classes, most like monks in their basics, but a shugenja works with divine spells like a cleric, but focuses on an element (some new spells), sohei are more like a ranger/barbari
2006-03-12 [Kim_Lundin]: Thanks for the info, I use Warlock a lot because that's the spelling I've seen in the past (comics and books ^_^).
