I added to her background a bit about why she can control it so well. Still working on it.

Edit: Changed some of the wording with her powers.

It's better, but still not good. I can't quite decide if I should eventually cave and let something sub-par in, or if I should wait until I'm actually satisfied, which at this rate will be a long while yet. Someone else should pipe up if they think I'm being overly judgmental, I'll readily admit I'm super biased.

Well, the person who could help me the most, not counting the people on here, has disappeared and won't be back for a few days. I still can't think of any better way to explain it.

Well for one you never explained what kind of 'items' you can form with your energy, also I'm still not sure if letting someone be able to absorb another person's powers would be a great idea.

I still haven't completely decided whether it should be small weapons or any useful item.

Though note that a gallon of dirt is a pretty useful item if you can bash someone's face in with it. I was really hoping the items weren't items, but just boring ol' mass, like a lump of iron or dirt or whatever, given that it otherwise overlaps with Dean's power, doesn't hold together with the theme of energy and (everyone say it with me) just adds to your characters OPness.

Has that person actually read the original post? You know, the one where I explain how people should construct their powers? Because you seem to have gotten a lot of bad advice.

I read it to him but idk how well he was listening. There will be a limit on the "items" she can make. If there's anything specific you want me to add, tell me.

He's already been asking that from you... Thats the whole thing, your power description isnt specific enough!

I'm starting to think you're reading all of this is a different language or something

Yup, if you are in need of feedback, go back a page, I did make a thousand quote post of it.

Post delayed due to work, drinking and hangover. Will post tomorrow.

Head... Hurts.

Try to avoid loud noises. This is the part where I would make a loud noise if you were able to hear it.

That's vague. That's just telling me to add to it, not what to add. How is it not specific enough? I need help! I've improved but I'm still nowhere near the level of all of y'all.

Hana, I've rolled resolution for both of us. The result was 21 for me... And 25 for you. We actually rolled the exact same thing, you just came ahead by your ballsy, risking of death. Kinda surprised you went for that already, but can't argue with results...

That means that I lost definitely, and you get to do all the stuff that I risked to Carrie, a decent fleshwarping, traitorous thoughts planted in Dean and all her lies seen through, if you want. This looks like a segue into a full-on battle, though.

Short of making your power for you, I can't be much more specific than I have already been, especially in the wall of quotes.

Hey Vegedus sorry to be a nuisance about this topic, but the risks you posted for Dean, are they risks to Dean, to Drake, or a bit of both. I know the Carrie one is clearly for Dean, but the others i'm not sure. I don't know why I am struggling to get a grip on this combat mechanic =(

Don't worry, I place all blame on myself for not being able to explain it clearly and succinctly. That's just how game design is, gotta take responsibility.

The risks are purely "to" Dean. Bad for him. You're always risking stuff that's always bad for your own character. As in, if I lose the roll, you get to "pierce" my bones. You get to decide whether you want to add additional risks yourself, or roll the dice. (That's kinda a new rule I just thought of, the responder can either roll the dice or add risks/style bonuses. It makes most sense that only the one who hasn't recently modified their bonuses to decide whether to roll).

I think I get it now. So you can present the things that you are risking, and if combat occurs and you lose, then those things happen to you. I get it.

Please, no more arguing in the thread. The matter is already settled; As is evident, no one is going to give anymore feedback than there has already been. Belwicket will work further from that, or not.
Draken30000 wrote:Hope I did that right.

Sure did! I'm gonna assume the "riddled" thing is a -2 to next combat, though. Also, the "flung out of window" thing isn't really significant enough to be a risk, you can do that anyway :D. Non-impairing flesh wounds aren't risks, they're just color you can inflict at your leisure.

I'll keep working on her until you accept her or tell me you won't let me in the RP. I did a little more editing.

Ok. Do note, physical energy isn't a more meaningful phrase than pure energy. All energy is physical, really. Otherwise, well, keep on editing.

I think I'll give a fair chance for Hana to react before posting :D
