Ok, got it all worked out.

Blooded is going to be a bit more solidified in the rules. At chargen you can pick three traits, one of which at most can be one of the Blooded traits. (If you don't pick a Blooded one, congratulations: you have three traits and can only pick NPC classes + the Magician class which is... unsafe.)

Apart from letting you be a proper class, the various Blooded traits also give special abilities. Relatively minor and non-flashy ones, no teleporting or fireballing or the like. But which abilities they give is not pre-determined. It's based not just on birth but training as well. An archer with the blood of Azrai might become a grim sniper who is never spotted. An armiger might not feel pain in a way startlingly similar to an undead. Or maybe he just gets the ability to meld into the shadows. It's never quite easy to predict.

What you need to understand about the apocalypse is that you aren't Mad Max. You're part of the skull pyramid in the background.

(story makes it sound like DM picks your power when you describe your char)
(you get one extra trait which will be a blooded one and one is the max and what it does is unclear)

aha so the choice is a god of somekind, (sounded to me like there was no choice, thx for the clear up....

so what gods can we choose or make up?

No, it really should say "at most."
Otherwise you'd be able to blow all three traits on different gods, thus granting you Kewl Powerz for each of them. You can select one of them (and should, if you don't want to suck). But you can't pick more than one, so it's at most.


Quote:(story makes it sound like DM picks your power when you describe your char)
Correct.
We can also use the AD&D method if you like: roll randomly on a rather limited table. With a bit of luck it might fit your concept... but you can also end up with the ability to talk to dolphins. (Hint: dolphins are not expected to play a big part of the campaign.)

Then we'll do it my way. And for the record, it's not like you don't have any choices in this. If you say, "I want my weapon master with blood of Anduiras (god of glory and battle and light and stuff) to have abilities that make him the quintessential knight in shining armor and all paladin-like", I can easily make it so.

Yes, except for you. You get to talk to dolphins. At level 8 this extends to whales and orcas. Later you will be able to summon dolphins from thin air! (Restriction: only works on land.)

Ok, bit of a bummer. I guess you don't have to confront Mask of Winters if you don't want to...

But now we can pester Melchior into running his D&D instead. You hear that lazy bum? Get preparing!

As there is an absence of JLT next friday (I still say that Mel should run some D&D then!), I propose Mel, Odd, and me get working on chargen for 'Eisen und Blut'.
As there is no need for niche protection, I don't foresee this making any character concepts JLT may have had impossible. At the very least we can roll stats and stuff.

Why read email when I have a perfectly good forum right here?
And besides, you're using my spam-trap. If you want to email me in earnest, use this one: Belphanior2@oohay.com
(Except replace oohay with yahoo. It's to confuzzle the evil bots that patrol the interweb in search of spam-bait.)

And by the way, that's a working day for me. So count me out.

Ok, starting level has been firmly decided as... 5 (five). Why? Well dear reader, allow me to explain.

1) Low level is definitely a no-go. I firmly believe that this won't allow you to multiclass properly, nor does it make your PC an individual - mechanically speaking. Every fighter is pretty much the same at level 1, aren't they? So we need 3+ at the very least.

2) At level 5 many of the really interesting abilities start to kick in. Man-at-arms gets his first wild card feat, for example. Classes start to really show off their strengths.
2a) As an aside, there are several example NPCs presented throughout various adventures and web enhancements and such. They are consistently level 5.

3) Since this is quite a small group (just three people in a big bad world) you may need to be a bit beefy to properly tackle anything beyond a three or four brigands. While the NPC warrior class may lack all the funky abilities, they are still frighteningly comparable when it comes to basic push-the-pointy-thing-into-the-soft-and-screaming-thing.

I was thinking along the lines a youth from a warrior orientated family. Older brothers being favored by father while they compete for who is the favored. The young one was always seen as the young one and should occupy with poetry or something./ Taken under the wing of mother I learned the ways of manipulation and such/ fork here cus this leads to golden boy paladin or/ I read books alright but only called poetry by the few. Taken under the wing by allies and enemys of my father he did not even knew he had, i learned where my true talent lay, MAGIC. then someting happend(being cooler than oldest brother) and get send away, to 7 year training to become man, excuse. bit angry but then learn to have friends just to have friends , no strings. someting like this anyway.
ps
it is a line of thought so is you cant follow it, its oke
