Live Changes 12/7

- Eagle-Eyes Class renamed Visionary Class "What can I say except 'You're Welcome'~!"

- Stat Bonuses for Character Ranks (VC:+5|Captain:+10) Removed: Stat boosts for ranks aren't needed, considering Captaincy Level Ranks come with a 10K Reiatsu Boost Already. Removing the Stat bonuses from ranks also simplifies Stat calculations.

- Natural Defense [ND] Tweaks & Added Features

  • Number Adjustments on ND Actions. Partial Blocking may see future changes. At the moment it might still be too harsh on Hand-to-Hand combat situations.
  • Class "Combat Skills": Primary Class specific advantages for particular ND actions.
Spoiler

Agile Evades Cost Less ND

Brute Clashes Cost Less ND

Genius Clashes Cost Less ND

Tank Blocks Cost Less ND

- Class Counter System & Legendary Tier Class Perks Added

  • Class Counter System: In Addition to having their unique strengths each class also has their weakness and are naturally countered by an opposing Class. In the early levels of play Class Counters do not take effect or benefit a character. However they can effect interactions against certain NPCS and Event Bosses. For PVP battles Class Counters come into play at 2★ Legend Rank and after a character has Maxed out their Primary Class Stat (230).

  • Set to expire on 2/1/2020. Series 2 currently slated for February. Yay!

Live Changes 01/09/2020

- Shinigami Race Changes Are Live "Finally! Many Thanks To FrogMod."

  • Shinigami Duality Updates: "Spirit Tempest" can now be activated for both Shikai/Bankai in the same battle. Now officially counted as a Shield/Barrier technique.
  • Kidō (Bakudō, Hadō, Kaidō) Race Techniques System Revamped: All Kidō now have a set Power that cannot be altered. Kidō can be used at their Full Power as long as the Shinigami meets the requirements to learn them and has learned them.
  • Shunkō Updates: Shunkō is being poised as a viable competitor/alternative to Hollowfication (Still being ironed out) should be finalized soon. Fate Points cost for Shunkō adjusted to [6 Points].
  • Spending Slots To Learn Kidō Adjusted: Given the considerable changes made to the Kidō system overall and how much stronger they have become as a result. The cost is too low for what Shinigami end up gaining now. New Cost: 2 Release Technique Slots -or- 4 Non-Release Stats. Custom Kidō Passives Removed. Custom Kido Spells are still in. The Custom Kido Power will scale with character Reiryoku and can be of any Kidō classification (Bakudō, Hadō, Kaidō).
  • All Shinigami Race Changes Can Be Found Here:  Shinigami Race Thread

- New RP Feature "Equipment Items"

  • What Is This?: With a lot of RP events and arcs on the way and the Completion of the first major event of Resurge 2019 we've seen our first Event Rewards and can expect to see more in the future. An understandable concern is how these bonus items which essentially function as extra abilities/utility will remain worthwhile without severely messing with Combat/Power Kit balance? Simple problems need simple solutions. Rewards from Arcs/Events/Missions are now officially known as "Equipment Items" and normally your character can only carry 1 of them on their person at a time --normally (more on this later). While your character may own an endless number of equipment items they can only use 1 in battle and that Item must be listed with their stats in their first post entering battle.
  • All owned Equipment Items must be listed on your Character Stat Page.
  • Equipment Items come in various types and behave differently. Some can be stolen, traded, destroyed. Some can be sold for Fate Points. Some expire. Some may be available for a limited time. Some are strong, some aren't as strong. They all come with an inherit ability or usage and the cost of using them may vary.
  • Lastly, Equipment Items can be purchased in the Fate Points Shop. But The price of an item will depend on how strong it is, 1-5 FP is the cost range.
  • The Process of buying a FP Equipment Item starts with making the Application for it and posting it in your Character Application Thread. Equipment Item Name: | Intended FP Cost: | Ability: (Mods will do the rest.)

- Fate Points Shop Updates "Some New Goodies"

  • REIRYOKU SPECIALIST Trait Updated: As a Major FP Purchase, this one just wasn't performing and didn't really have it's own identity. Changes to Kidō have presented an opportunity for this Trait to mean alot more. At the moment its best suited to Shinigami but it's being fleshed out to be more attractive across the board. Basic Concept: "Reiryoku Specialist Trait makes learning Race Techniques even easier and makes them stronger."

- New Fate Point Shop Purchases

- Upcoming Changes

  • Hollow/Cero/Segunda Updates - Fullbringer Duality Adjustments - Finalizing Reiryoku Specialist Effects

Live Changes 01/18/2020

- ND Changes "It's Gonna Sting"

  • ND Changes Dubbed The "San Patch" Locked In...Kinda...?: So, after testing it out Live for a bit. The San patch seems to have fixed a few of the problems we were having with Clashes. Hits were hurting just a tiny bit too much, which was having a ripple effect elsewhere, not unlike the San Patch as a whole. But overall, the changes all look great. And with the damage multipliers tweak just a tiny bit we're in a good spot. Just so you know what all to look at: Direct Hits (x4) - Counter Class Direct Hits (x5) - Visionary Reduced Critical Hits VS Tanks (x5) - Critical Hits (x6) - Visionary Class Critical Hits (x7) - Broken Shield/Barrier (x5 Difference) - Clashes
  • Brute/Genius Class Combat Skill Update: The San Patch Hit Clashing as a defensive option for the Classes that are supposed to excel at it pretty hard. Especially with the increased net value of Attacks. The argument can be made that Brutes/Genius as the Power Classes should be more focused on using their resources to attack anyway. As it stands with the, changes in most cases Brute/Genius lose more from Clashing than the other classes. To meet somewhere in the middle ground "Brutes/Genius Get 1 Free Defensive Clash. It will always default to a Tied Clash when possible. If the Brute/Genius is weaker it registers as a Normal Loss Clash."
  • Natural Defense Thread
  • SEALS & GRAPPLING mechanics are going to officially be added to the ND System soon. A General rundown.

- Fatigue Mechanic "Thought This Was Already Up, Honestly"

  • "Fatigue" sets in when a character uses the maximum capability of their stats without having sufficient Stamina to do so. An example of this would be an Agile frequently using 200 Speed while having only 100 Stamina. The General Rule is that characters can use their maximum stats for the duration of battle as long as they have the appropriate Stamina.
  • Fatigue Cost ND = Value of Stat Used Per Action.  
  • 11-20 Point Difference: Mild Fatigue. You get 16 actions using the insufficient stat. After that Fatigue Cost kicks in for every instance that Stat is used at an amount higher than your Stamina.
  • 21-30 Point Difference: Moderate Fatigue. You get 8 actions using the insufficient stats. After that Fatigue Cost kicks in for every instance that Stat is used at an amount higher than your Stamina.
  • 31+ Point Difference: Major Fatigue. You get 4 actions using the insufficient stats. After that Fatigue Cost kicks in for every instance that Stat is used at an amount higher than your Stamina.
  • Fatigue Added To ND Thread

- Visionary "Mind's Eye" Update:

  • "Mind's Eye Strike": With the changes to the Brute/Genius Combat Skill. Mind's Eye needs a rework. Currently it grants a Free Clash which is kinda cool but not really in line with the Class. The Perk should complement the Class Skill which for Visionary is Critical Hits.
  • "After Landing Three Critical Hits the Visionary can attempt a Mind's Eye Strike. Mind's Eye Strike Hits For Attack Value (x8)."

- Hollow Race Changes Are Live 

- Shinigami/Vaizard Race Changes

  • Shunko Is Up.
  • Full Vaizard under works

- Talisman Updates "San Patch Did Some Stuff, Yada Yada Yada"

  • Talisman of Might: "This o-fuda is inscribed with the word 'might'. It imbues its bearer with incredible power." [Prevents Connor's Attacks from being Clashed for 1 Turn.] [Cost: 1000 ND - 5 Turn Cooldown - 3 Uses Per Battle] Owner: Connor Knight
  • Talisman of Karma: "This o-fuda is inscribed with the word 'karma'. The bearer of this talisman is bestowed karmic favor and will reap the swift rewards for the transgressions of others upon them." [Enemy Loses 210 ND for every Attack issued against Masato for 1 Turn.] [Cost: 1000 ND - 5 Turn Cooldown - 3 Uses Per Battle] Owner: Masato Hizorashi
  • Talisman of Clarity: "This o-fuda is inscribed with the word 'clarity'. It grants unclouded clarity, clearness of mind, and wards off illusions and confusion."

  • Talisman of Vitality: "This o-fuda is inscribed with the word 'vitality'. It imbues its bearer with great youthful vigor and tenacity." [Allows San to gain 300 ND for each of his attacks that Partially Hit. 600 ND for each of his attacks that Critical Hits/Direct Hits. (ND Gain Caps at 2,100). For the next 2 turns.] [Cost: 1000 ND - 5 Turn Cooldown - 3 Uses Per Battle] Owner: San Salvatore

- Character Kits That Could Use Some TLC

  • Kaeru Xarius: Minor Tweaks
  • Connor Knight: Minor Tweaks
  • Yamashiro Gamazi: Full Rework

- Clarification For Equipment Item Fate Points Price Ranges.

  • The Maximum amount of FP an Equipment Item can cost is 5 Fate Points. The Equipment Item itself can cost anything from 1-4 FP based on the strength of the item. If the Equipment Item costs less than 5FP there are other features that can be bought as augments.
  • 1 FP: Insurance #1 "Indestructibility" (Cannot Be Destroyed Upon Defeat)
  • 1 FP: Insurance #2 "Anti-Theft" (Cannot Be Stolen Upon Defeat)
  • 1 FP: Trade/Gift (Can Be Traded or Gifted To Another Player)
  • 1 FP: +10 ??? Stat (Adds +10 To A Single Stat - Limited To 1 Per Item)

Note: This is the system for grading and pricing Personal Equipment Items purchased from the Fate Points Shop. May not necessarily apply to Equipment Items from Events or loot from NPCs.

Live Changes 02/15/2020

- Visionary "Mind's Eye" Update: Mind's Eye Strike is still a bit on the weaker side because it's so hard to set up and there is no guarantee it will succeed. So, these changes should help it out a bit. Visionary are also expected to have an advantage in countering Seals/Grapples so look out for that whenever it goes up.

  • "Mind's Eye Strike": "After Landing Three Critical Hits the Visionary can attempt a Mind's Eye Strike. Mind's Eye Strike Hits For Attack Value (x8)."
  • Allows the user to execute a single Empowered Critical Hit after landing 3 Direct Hits on a target within 4 turns. The Visionary gains access to Mind's Eye Strike which is a Critical Hit that does x8 Attack Value. Mind's Eye Strike cannot be Dodged. Cosmetics is left to the discretion of the RP'er.

- Seals & Grappling:  General outline for both is set up but I still need some time to iron it out.

I'll mostly be working on Ability Kits this week. So if you need something looked at get yourself on the Ability Approval List if you aren't on there already.

Updates:

Role-Play Rules of Conduct & General Guide

  1. Posting Rules - In an effort to help people be more active with one another and be a little less restricted we are opening up the interactive RPing a bit more. See below for changes to Posting Rules #8.
    1. You can be in a total of 3 threads at one time. This includes solo or group threads (more than just you), however you can only be in 1 death active thread at a time. All threads you are currently in must take place before a death active thread. Event threads do not count against this total.
      1. Cannot post any threads that take place after the death active thread until the thread is done.
      2. You can post in threads that take place before the death active thread happens.
      3. All 3 threads can be joint threads if you desire, but you cannot solo post if those threads are all taken up.
      4. EXCEPTION: Event threads do not impact this rule. This allows you to be in more past the 3 post limitations.

- Agile Class Perk Ghosting has been adjusted to clarify its use better.

  • "Ghosting": Allows the user to dodge any single Basic Attack | Race Technique | Personal Technique/Ability regardless of tier up to 60 point difference. Cosmetics is left to the discretion of the RP'er. In situations where the use of Ghosting would logically cause more than a single attack to be avoided, Ghosting will occur as a "flicker" dodge in place rather than a reposition to a different location.

------------------------------------

Upcoming updates:

  • Clarification on slots for racial techniques/custom kido
  • updates to other races Non-release abilities/skills (quincy and bount possibly are next)
  • continued rule clarification and updates.

Updates:

Role-Play Rules of Conduct & General Guide

  1. Character Creation - In an effort to help the mods keep the forum a bit cleaner and track of the actual active characters we have add the Important warning to the Character Creation post. or the mod team, but 
    1. Important Warning: If anyone does not post or submit a Word Count over 1 month time (4-5 weeks) then you will be moved into INACTIVE status at the bottom of the Official Role Playing Ranks. Also, if your character is inactive for 3 months (12-15 weeks) or more your character application will be moved to the Inactive/Approved thread. In order to be moved back into the active ranks you just have to post in the active subforums, then post a WC Submission, and you will be moved back into your proper area during the next Ranking updates. Caps and requirements are still enforced for your overall reiatsu level, look in the appropriate reiatsu field you fall into to know what your caps/requirements are. Those that give the Mods a heads up will get some leniency on the haste at which they are moved to inactive.

Updates:

Bount, Fullbringer, Hollow, Quincy, Shinigami

  1. Area of Effect and Multi-targeting - In an effort to help the mods keep the forum a bit cleaner and track of the actual active characters we have add the Important warning to the Bount, Fullbringer, Hollow, Quincy, Shinigami threads in their respective reiryoku ability sections, ask the mod team for any clarifications; (shinigami example below)
    1. IMPORTANT! Area of Effect or Multiple target Kidō: Each kido has an area that effects it or mentions being able to target more than one target. In order to target more than the initial target you may spend another Combat Action per additional Target. Captain Level Kido automatically targets up to 2 as they require a minimum of 2 combat actions. So the max targets can be 4 (unless you gain additional combat actions) if all combat actions are used, each of those targets have to deal with the effects as if they were the only one targeted. 
    2. Example: Oriru uses Hado #99 to target 4 people by giving up 4 combat moves (2 for the captain level kido +2 more for 2 additional targets). Each one will have to deal with Hado 99 as if it was directed to only them individually.

Live Changes 04/13/2020

- ND Changes: As per usual, we're always looking at ways to improve the ND system and make the less obvious mechanics more transparent so things run smoothly. There is a MAJOR addition to the way Stats and ND Calculations are done on the way, but it's still in the very very very early stages of development and may take some time to develop, but that's been a big focus atm. In the meantime, we're ironing out more of the kinks and tinkering things for a definitive version of ND that we won't have to mess with much afterwards. I'd say we're 95% of the way there, and most of the things we're working out now are qol changes. But that's enough blabbing from me.

  • Evasion Rework: This isn't a big issue at all, but apparently there is some confusion about the relation between evasion and damage value. "Why is the damage value a factor in dodging if I am dodging the attack?" The simple answer is that the ND calculations function as a behind the scenes system as well as an in-character resource. Basically, your character doesn't always feel themselves losing ND for performing actions in situations where ND isn't acting as a metric of actual life-force when taking damage. For example: when clashing projectile attacks, the projectile user doesn't necessarily ever make contact with the attack being clashed (unless they do for cosmetic sake of it) still they lose ND when it happens --they wouldn't feel any sort of pain or injury and the ND loss taking place is purely system based. The same goes for Evading, the ND loss caused by Evading isn't something felt directly and [Value of Attack] was used in the formula because that Value reflects the investment of the Attacker. Nevertheless, that didn't seem to work for certain folk, so we're changing how Evasions work. Additionally, we're also clarifying what the parameters of what can be a Full-Evade and what defaults as a Partial.

Old Evasion Formula:
FULL EVASION ND COST: 100 ND (0 ND for Agiles) + Value of The Attack
PARTIAL EVASION ND COST: 200 ND (0 ND for Agiles)
+ Value of The Attack
-----
New Evasion Formula:

FULL EVASION/DODGING: The act of simply dodging an incoming attack. In order to Full-Block both Speed and Perception must be within the 1-20 Stat Difference range, if your Speed and Perception meet the requirements a Full Dodge is possible from any range.
ND COST: 100 ND (0 ND for Agiles) + Attack-Speed Value

PARTIAL-EVASION: In circumstances where your character is unable to perform a Full Evasion due to insufficient Speed/Perception. If either your Speed or Perception outside of the 1-20 Stat Difference range then Full-Dodges are not an option regardless of distance etc. (except in the case of special evasion techniques)
ND COST: 200 ND (100 ND for Agiles) + Attack-Speed Value

If both your Speed and Perception are more than 20 points below the Attack-Speed of the Incoming Attack, no Evasion option is available to your character outside of the use of special evasion techniques.
-----
- Fatigue Multi-Stat Action Rule:
This technicality was being tested in practice and we're now just making it official.

  • Multi-Stat Actions Rule: There are actions that require the use of multiple stats (for example: dodging requires Speed and Perception. Attacks require Attack-Value and Attack-Speed) in these situations the Fatigue count is applied only once for the action with the greater value. So, if you Attack with 230 Strength and 210 Attack-Speed, the Fatigue cost for that action will be 230 ND.

- New Perception/Attack-Speed relationship Rule: Maximum Value of Usable Attack-Speed = Perception +20.
-----
- Redefinition of Tier Differences: A question that commonly comes up is how much lower can stat X can be from stat Y. We previously used a used a Tier-based calculation but that was admittedly a bit confusing. The simple alternative it to allow for a 20 point differential. You're fine in that range but that's the maximum. Instances that say "2 Tier Difference" will be changed to reflect the new guideline.
-----
- High-Speed Movement Techniques:
With the changes to Evading the opportunity for HSM techniques like Shunpo and Sonido can have system relevance. While they can still function as a cosmetic movement, system-wise HSMs will allow characters to Dodge/Attack using their maximum Speed and Attack-Speed in situations were their Perception might not be up to par.

Example of System Use: Your character has 200 Speed and 200 Attack-Speed but only 170 Perception.
Normally you would only be able to partial-dodge an incoming attack of 190 Speed because of you Perception. And the fastest your own attack would be able to travel is 190 Speed.
However, if you used a HSM to Dodge then you can partial dodge attacks up to 220 Speed. If you set up your attack with a HSM "Shunpo/Stab" Your Attack-Speed stat can be used in full.
The cost of HSM= 1 Combat Move + the normal ND cost for performed actions.
-----
[7 POINTS] REIRYOKU SPECIALIST TRAIT: (30% WC Requirement Reduction on all Race Techniques. (If the requirement to learn a Technique is 100WC, then it is reduced to 70WC) This stacks with the Genius Class "Spiritual Wit" Perk of 10% WC Reduction. Increases Base Power on Kido by 10.
Reiryoku-based Action Fatigue Buffer: Even After Fatigue becomes active in combat, Reiryoku-Based Actions will not incur a Fatigue Cost for 3 Turns.
(Limited to 1 Trait Purchase).

Updates:

Legendary Tier

  1. Legend Tier - Split the Unfocused stat boosts between L1 and L3 instead of just L3.
    1. 1★ Legend - Added Stat Tier (161-180) unlocked for your Character's Unfocused Stats.
    2. 3★★★ Legend  - Updated Stat Tier (181-200) unlocked for your Character's Unfocused Stats.

 

New Perception Rule Clarification

  1. FULL BLOCK: [Strength VS Strength / Reiryoku VS Reiryoku] Full-blocking is the act of raising a defense against an attack that is not a part of your character's body. IE: Full Blocking is blocking with your weapon or another object. This can include materializing Reiryoku-based defenses etc. The Shinigami Spirit Tempest counts as a Full-Block. To perform a Full Block the action of blocking the attack needs to occur within reason of your character's Strength or Reiryoku must be within the 1-30 Stat Difference range of the reflective stat and Perception must be within the 1-20 Stat Difference range of the attack-speed, if your Strength or Reiryoku and Perception meet the requirements a Full Block is possible. In the event that the attack exceeds that limit but it is still within your character's means to mount a defense, it should be calculated as a Partial-Block.
    1. removed the 2 tier comments.
  2. PARTIAL- BLOCK: [Strength VS Strength / Reiryoku VS Reiryoku]  In the event that the attack exceeds that limit but it is still within your character's means to mount a defense. Includes any form of blocking using your character's body (unless explicitly stated otherwise in the form of personal techniques or abilities.)
    1. removed the 2 tier comments.
  3. Fixed Full-Dodge to say full-dodge instead of full-block in block text.
  4. Added Perception/Attack-Speed relationship Rule under Alternative stats 
    1. Reaction Time to be slowly phased out eventually for the new Perception rules.
