Apocalyptic Wind Tower (info + signups)
« on: February 11, 2014, 11:17:16 am »
While we wait for Endania to start up again, I've decided to run a little RPG in the meantime. This won't be too big or complex, and I might be a little slow in updating ( in two weeks I'll be starting at university and likely won't have much time after that) but yeah. It'll be using a more polished and streamlined version of the Espiverse system, which is a system I invented a few years ago. I'll leave it as an exercise for the players to figure out how it works. ;3


==Story==

The leader and only remaining member of Team Dragon Fall, EH_IH, has gone mad, and is attempting to destroy the universe.

In 2019, she built a spectacular stone tower with twelve floors for herself atop a windy mountain, with the help of a few powerful followers and a summoned undead horde. She designed and built a grand reality-warping machine at the top of the tower, and used it to make a portal to a poisonous hell dimension called the Plane of Decay. Shortly afterwards, she challenged Shane to a duel, and won. She threw Shane into the Plane of Decay and turned off the machine, trapping him there.

It is now New Year's Day, 2020, and EH_IH has decided to turn it into a game. She has issued a challenge to anyone willing:

"Idiots and idiotesses,

I'm giving you, the person reading this, a chance to prove that not all people are terrible. I shall open the gates to my tower. You fools have 55 days before all reality is wiped out.

Have fun!"

So yeah. Your job is here to take EH_IH's challenge and run with it.

==Rules==


--One character per person at a time. If your character dies, or if you choose for them to permanently leave the tower, you may create a new one.
--If someone is inactive from this thread for an entire week without telling us beforehand, their character will automatically exit the tower. They may reenter later, though.
--The game begins after the first valid application is submitted.
--That's pretty much all.


==Application==

Copy-paste this and fill out all empty fields. Fields marked with an X will need to be calculated by me. Anything in brackets is a note which can be safely deleted.

Quote
Name:
Age:
Gender:
Race: (see below for list, or make up your own)
Element:
Text Colour:

Appearance: (A quick description of clothes, body, hair, and any accessories would be good. Any items listed here are considered "background clothing" and won't affect the game at all)
Other Information: (optional, can be history, fears, or whatever you like)

(The values of the following eight stats must add up to 56, and they must all be integers. The minimum for each stat is 0 and the maximum is 24. Other than that, they may be distributed however you like.)
Agility: (physical resistance)
Clarity: (ability skill bonus)
Endurance: (maximum health points, stamina bonus)
Mind: (maximum ability points, stamina bonus)
Soul: (magical offense bonus)
Strength: (physical offense bonus)
Toughness: (defense bonus)
Willpower: (magical resistance)

Weapon: (pick a weapon category from the Endania list. You get a free tier 1 weapon of that category)

Armour (Head): None
Armour (Hands): None
Armour (Body): None
Armour (Legs): None
Armour (Feet): None

Accessory (Hand 1): None
Accessory (Hand 2): None
Accessory (Neck): None

Maximum Stamina Points: X
Maximum Ability Points: X

Base Defense: X
Base Ability Skill: X
Base Magical Offense: X
Base Physical Offense: X
Actual Defense: X
Actual Ability Skill: X
Actual Magical Offense: X
Actual Physical Offense: X

Physical Resistance: X
Magical Reistance: X
(there are other resistances, but there are a ton of them and they're all equal to 7 unless they get modified later, so they're not listed here)

Ability 1: (you may start with one ability which must match your element. You may make one up and suggest a general effect, but I'll rebalance it so it makes sense. Alternately, you may pick one from the ability list below, or choose to start with no ability.)
Ability 2: None
Ability 3: None
Ability 4: None

Inventory: None
Money: 7500 Shekrons

==Notes==
--At the beginning of the actual game, all characters will have a chance to spend their starting money on items.
--Death is almost always permanent, so be careful.
--In order to keep things challenging, fights may get scaled up if many people are in the tower at once.
--All items have a tier, which can be between 1 and 8.
--Some items randomly have special properties.

==Data==

I decided it was kind of unweildy to keep information on races, items, and abilities in this thread, so I've moved them to http://shanescavestory.createaforum.com/forum-rpgs/apocalyptic-wind-tower-(data-thread)/

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pentabeam is a quintessence beam, simple.
Gale Palm is when a horizontal tornado comes out of his hand, does as much damage as Pentabeam.
Healing water makes a ball of water and heals a bit.
Boulder Shots are when he summons five small boulders and throws them at the enemy.
If 5 attacks were allowed I'd have a fire attack too.
Happy Chinese New Year to all of you at DRPF!

Well, the idea is that you would start with just one ability, but those seem reasonable so I suppose I could allow it ^.^

EDIT: your introductory post is up now.

Before I join: can I use one of the abilities from Endania?


In addition, the Kushagra spoiler has no appearance. :o

Oops, thanks for pointing that out.

And yeah, you can, although I'll have to adapt it to fit the system.

EDIT: Okay, fixed :3 Now I'm off to sleep, sowwy.

NOTES: I've added my character's date of birth and last name, as well as a photo of her. You never know. ;)
Said photo is actually a Crysandrea pic Taylor made sometime before it closed down, though.

Name: Kim Sami
Last Name: van der Lecq
Age: 17
Date of Birth: 1 June 1996
Gender: Female
Race: Inhuman
Element: Poison
Text Colour: Red :3

Appearance: She has long brown hair, green eyes, and wears a silver tiara. She wears a revealing pink top and a red miniskirt with black evening gloves and black thigh-high stockings, with red high-heeled shoes. Around her neck she wears a silver crescent-moon-shaped pendant, which can open the Apocalyptic Fire Tower according to her parents. She also wears a black one-piece swimsuit underneath her clothes in case she needs to swim. She also wears black knee-high socks where she hides her knives when she doesn't use them.

Other Information: She always wears stockings and gloves and won't remove them if she goes swimming. She has a fear of gas masks, noxious gases, and earthquakes. When she was 10, she strangled her godparents with a pair of stockings. Her skin is sensitive to the sun, and she is allergic to suncream. She is dating Shane Elvis John van der Bryn. She is the Selemarian Cypher of Kim Tyranto, the Dragon Rider Princess. Her fear of gas masks and noxious gases come from her godparents forcing her to wear a gas mask, which had a tube (or something) attached to it which was constantly filled with poisonous gas, which, as a result, caused her to control the Poison element but also caused her a lot of pain while she wore the mask - she was also tied up and thus was unable to do anything - she inhaled poison gas for 96 Surfacian hours every four Draconian days (Draconia has 48 hours in a single day, so she was stuck inhaling poisonous gas for two Draconian days, then two days of "freedom" before she is tortured again) since she turned 6. Her sisters Hina and Lauren both died because of this, but their parents think it was from a car accident. She has a tendency to hide her knives in a pair of socks after seeing an episode of Delilah and Julius.

Agility: 8
Clarity: 8
Endurance: 8
Mind: 8
Soul: 8
Strength: 4
Toughness: 4
Willpower: 8

Weapon: Twin Daggers

Armour (Head): Nothing
Armour (Hands): Nothing
Armour (Body): Nothing
Armour (Legs): Nothing
Armour (Feet): Nothing

Accessory (Hand 1): Nothing
Accessory (Hand 2): Nothing
Accessory (Neck): Nothing

Maximum Health Points: X

Maximum Ability Points: X

Base Defense: X
Base Ability Skill: X
Base Magical Offense: X
Base Physical Offense: X
Actual Defense: X
Actual Ability Skill: X
Actual Magical Offense: X
Actual Physical Offense: X

Physical Resistance: X
Magical Reistance: X

Ability 1: Toxify (On planet Endania, it increases the power of Poison-type attacks when the character has 1/3 HP left. This is currently her only ability.)
Ability 2: Poison Touch (On planet Endania, the character poisons the opponent on contact. If possible, she would like this as her second ability when she can get one.)
Ability 3: None
Ability 4: None

Inventory: Nothing
Money: 7500 Shekrons



I hope you don't mind if I mention an Apocalyptic Fire Tower. :)
If there's a Wind Tower, I would think that logic dictates there be Fire, Water and Earth Towers too, though on different planets perhaps.


And sleep well.



EDIT BY SHANE:
Let me get this straight.
Your character is a Selemarian Cypher, and is dating one as well?

...

...

...

Seems to be in order.

Anyway, AuroraDash: I could make a separate board for this, if you'd like.

Kim: Looks fine! I'll go add that to the post and make your introductory post. Now, you can head over to the other thread and pick your items!

Shane: I don't think that's really necessary, just these two threads are good enough. ^.^

Might I perhaps control Kim Sami for now?

Considering recent events, I'm a bit worried that Kim might no longer post or anything...

Right. :)

Oh, a note: tri-blades have been added, so if a new participant chooses to have those as his/her weapon(s), it's possible.

The weapons are basically from the Endanian Chronicles' weapon lists, so it probably makes sense.
