YO I AM CURRENTLY RUNNING TWO 5E CAMPAIGNS AND THAT SHIT IS AMAZING! AWESOME SYSTEM FOR TELLING AWESOME STORIES!

HOWEVER, 5E HAS BORING AS FUCK MONSTERS. THEY'RE PRETTY MUCH ALL PALLET SWAPS OF BEARS AND BANDITS. MOST CREATURES CAN'T DO ANYTHING MORE INTERESTING THAN ''TWO ATTACKS AT X TO HIT FOR X DAMAGE''.

AND THAT'S WHERE 4E COMES IN! AWESOME TACTICAL COMBATS WITH INTERESTING MONSTERS!

LEGIT IF WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR IS CRAZY ABILITIES YOU CAN REFLUFF AS LITERALLY ANYTHING RIGHT ON THE FLY AND EVERYONE HAVING DIFFERENT KINDSA CRAZY SHIT BUT IN THE STYLE OF A TBS LIKE DISGAEA OR FFT, 4E DnD is legitimately one of the best games out there. No other game handles tactical turn-based combat quite so well, and the aesthetics are all so bare-bones you can replace them with basically anything you want.
>>
>>39705012

THE MALIFAUX RPG, THROUGH THE BREACH, HAS SOMETHING VERY SIMILAR TO A JOB SYSTEM, BUT IT'S NOT AS DEFINED AND RESTRICTIVE. IF YOU COUNT ADVANCED OR ALTERNATE PATHS, BOTH L5R AND FIRST EDITION DARK HERESY HAVE A SORT OF JOB-SYSTEM THING GOING ON. IT'S NOT A THING YOU'RE LIKELY TO FIND IN MANY TABLE TOP GAMES, TO BE HONEST.

WARHAMMER FANTASY OF ALL EDITIONS, BUT ESPECIALLY 3RD, IS PROBABLY YOUR BEST BET, AND THAT HAS ALSO HAS LOTS OF WONKY ABILITIES, ALBEIT SIGNIFICANTLY MORE LOW KEY THAN WHAT YOU'RE PROBABLY LOOKING FOR.

I HAVE ZERO CLUE WHAT YOU MEAN FROM THAT DESCRIPTION, BUT IT MAY BE TENRA BANSHOU ZERO

>INSECT DUDES

THERE'S A CLASS IN THIS FUCKING GAME DEVOTED TO INCUBATING LOVECRAFTIAN-TIER INSECTS AND SHIT IN YOUR GUTS SO YOU CAN FORM A SYMBIOSIS WITH THEM AND DO CRAZY SHIT. IT'S SOME BODY HORROR TYPE FUCKERY GOING ON HERE MAN

ALSO THERE ARE ROBOTS WHO CAN HAVE KATANAS, ALTHOUGH THE WORD "SAMURAI" IS RESERVED MORE SPECIFICALLY FOR THESE DUDES WHO PUT THESE SPECIAL GEMS IN THEIR BODY, LIKE HUNDREDS OF THEM, SO THEY CAN GET MORE POWERFUL. IT'S LIKE IF CLOUD STRIFE DECIDED TO GET SURGERY AND PUT MATERIA IN HIS SKULL WHICH LET HIM PUMP HIS BODY FULL OF MAGIC TO GET STEROIDS

AS FOR "DECIDING TO DIE," WELL IN TBZ YOU RAW CAN'T DIE UNLESS YOU CHECK A DEATH BOX. SEE, THE SYSTEM USES A COMBINATION OF HP AND WOUNDS FOR TRACKING DAMAGE TO A PLAYER. HP BASICALLY FUNCTIONS IN THAT WHOLE HANDWAVEY LUCK/MEAT/GRIT'NGUTS POINTS METHOD, WHILE WOUND BOXES GET TICKED WHICH FORM MORE LASTING WOUNDS BUT GIVE YOU POWER UPS. IF YOU CHECK YOUR DEATH BOX, YOU GAIN A TON OF POWER, BUT YOU IRRECOVERABLY DIE IF YOUR HP HITS ZERO, WHEREAS OTHERWISE YOU'D JUST BE KNOCKED OUT

IT'S KIND OF AN AMAZING SYSTEM

YOU CAN PUNCH OUT GODZILLA IN YOUR 500 FOOT TALL REALITY BENDING ROBOT POWERED BY PURE HOT BLOODED FURY, AND ANIMA WILL NUMERICALLY QUANTIFY JUST HOW FUCKING STYLIN' YOU LOOK WHILE YOU DO IT.

FOR THOSE SERIES WITH THE CRAZY DUNGEON STUFF YOU COULD USE X-CRAWL.

WHICH IS A GAMING SYSTEM BASED ON EXTREME SPORTS MURDERHOBO'ING BUT COULD EASILY BE USED AS DUNGEON DI WA WHATEVER THE FUCK OR .HACK ETC
>>
>>39712020
>In Xcrawl, the players are superstar athletes taking their chances in a live-on-pay-per-view death sport. It’s a modern-day world with a fantasy twist, and the game is simple: the Dungeon Judge, or DJ, creates an artificial dungeon under controlled – but lethal – conditions. He designs the maze, and stocks it with monsters, secret doors, magical traps, treasure and prizes. The players must go through the dungeon and fulfill whatever conditions the DJ puts forth in order to win.

>The Dungeon Judge, or DJ

I have never gotten more interested in a game purely based off of its elevator pitch and its phraseology than this

Please don't let this just be a matter of "we don't want to fight WoTC's lawyers so we can call it Dungeon Master so you're a DJ instead"

ANIMA BEYOND FANTASY IS UNEQUIVOCALLY THE BEST OPTION FOR HIGH POWERED SHONEN HIJINKS. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE A TECHNICIAN PUNCHING LASER BEAMS AND EXPLODING MOUNTAINS, I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU.

DJs exist in-universe and have established styles and work major events. I'm not totally crazy about XCrawl's 'fantasy modern world with America as a giant dystopian Rome-equivalent' background, but I have to admit that their aesthetic is incredibly on fucking point.

Also, that there should really be a team sponsored by Tiamat Tiamat Tiamat Tiamat and Tiamat, the last word in Lawful Evil representation.

> X-Crawl is a complete role playing game published under the 3.5 OGL rules. The following adventures are available to expand your game - click on a cover to learn more:

>>39712381
THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF X-CRAWL CAME OUT FOREVER A FUCKING GO, LIKE RIGHT WHEN THE OGL LICENSE SHIT WENT DOWN IN 2001.

THE CURRENT VERSION IS MAXIMUM X-CRAWL WHICH CAME OUT LAST YEAR AND IS PATHFINDER COMPATIBLE.

GODDAMNIT. FUCK IT, MAYBE I'LL READ IT ANYWAY IF ONLY FOR THE NOVELTY

>>39711883
MAGICAL BURST IS GREAT AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE GAMES BUT NOT REALLY WHAT OP IS ASKING FOR

ALSO IT TENDS TO BE MOST FUN WHEN YOU DON"T REALLY USE THE RULES BUT JUST FREEFORM ROLEPLAY AS CUTE GIRLS, BATTLES AREN"T THAT FUN AND IT MOSTLY RELIES ON A GOOD GM OR PLAYERS TO KEEP THINGS INTERESTING

SO REALLY WHAT MAKES IT GOOD IS THE PREMISE AND NARRATIVE FRAMEWORK (WHICH IS HEAVILY SUPPLMENTED BY THE RANDOM TABLES) MORE THAN ANYTHING

Ignoring the other games for a minute, by trying to return the world to normal he would also be killing all the people of Ivalice. It would be like killing someone to bring someone else back to life. Marche had no right to make that call.
>>
>>39712839
THE REASON THAT THE GAME IS BEST WHEN YOU'RE NOT USING THE RULES DOESN'T REALLY REFLECT ON THE QUALITY OF THE RULES. THERE AREN'T REALLY RULES FOR JUST PRETENDING TO BE CUTE GIRLS TOGETHER AND HAVING A COZY TIME (ASIDE FROM A RELATIONSHIP STRENGTH NUMBER) BECAUSE IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE A MECHANICAL ENDEAVOR. BUT THAT PART OF THE GAME TENDS TO BE MORE FUN THAN FIGHTING YOUMA, WHICH IS WHEN YOU USE MECHANICS THE MOST HEAVILY, AND THE MECHANICS ARE PERFECTLY SERVICEABLE IN THAT SITUATION BUT IT'S JUST NOT REALLY WHAT MOST PEOPLE PLAY THE GAME FOR.
>>
>>39712947
THE PEOPLE WERE MADE FROM PEOPLE IN THE REAL WORLD ANYWAY.

>SERVICEABLE

I'M TELLING IT TO YOU STRAIGHT MAN, THAT'S HOW IT IS.

>>39713067

AND I THINK YOU DRANK THE KOOLAID BECAUSE EVERY PART OF YOUR PHRASEOLOGY SUGGESTS THAT YOU KNOW THE SYSTEM IS SHIT, YOU JUST DON'T WANT TO ADMIT IT BECAUSE YOU ASSOCIATE IT WITH THE FUN TIMES YOU'VE HAD, LIKELY WITH THAT OTHER FAG POSTING IN THIS THREAD
>>
>>39713043
YEAH BUT IT'S SO RULES-LIGHT THAT IT BARELY COUNTS. LIKE YOU HAVE YOUR POWER(S) AND TALENT(S) BUT WHEN YOU ACTUALLY USE IT IN-GAME YOU JUST CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANT TO DO AND USE LITERALLY ONE DIE ROLL TO DO IT, AND THE GM CONSULTS A TABLE AND MAKES SOME DECISIONS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS. LIKE MAYBE YOU CONSULT THE TABLE TOO AND DECIDE HOW MUCH OC TO BURN BUT IT'S STILL PRETTY DAMN SIMPLE FOR A MAGIC SYSTEM.
>>
>>39713087

SHIT SON, I ENJOY THE HELL OUT OF MAGICAL BURST. COMBAT AIN'T THE BEST, BUT I HAVE FUN WITH A BUNCH OF GOOD BUDDIES. GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME
>>
>>39713032
>>39713087
RIGHT NOW COMBAT IS TEDIOUS AND UNFUN IF YOU DO IT TOO MUCH, BUT THAT'S BECAUSE IT'S DESIGNED FOR SHOWPIECE BOSS FIGHTS. AND ALSO THE GM COULD USE SOME MORE PRESENTED OPTIONS FOR DYNAMIC YOUMA CREATION. BUT THOSE ARE PERFECTLY REASONABLE SORTS OF PROBLEMS FOR A PRE-RELEASE DRAFT GAME TO HAVE. ALL SORTS OF OTHER MECHANICS IN THE GAME ARE FUN INCLUDING THE BASIC DICE SYSTEM AND OVERCHARGE AND FALLOUT WHICH ARE PRETTY CENTRAL TO THE WHOLE THING.
>>
>>39713167
>>39713148
COMBAT IS A PRETTY FUCKING FUNDAMENTAL PART OF A GAME TOO THOUGH. IF THE SYSTEM IS FUCKED THE WHOLE THING IS FUCKED
>>
>>39713284
IT'S ONLY AS FUNDAMENTAL AS YOU MAKE IT, ESPECIALLY IN MAGICAL BURST, BUT EWEN (THE DEVELOPER) IS MIXING IN THE MUCH LIGHTER COMBAT RULES FROM MAGICAL FURY AND THEY'RE QUITE GOOD, SO IT SHOULD BE FINE WHENEVER FIFTH DRAFT IS OUT
>>
>>39713014
THAT DOESN'T NEGATE THE PEOPLE OF IVALICE'S RIGHT TO LIFE OR MAKE THEIR LIVES LESS VALUABLE THAN THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE THEM.
>>
>>39704889

THAT SHOE LOOKS LIKE A PENIS.
>>
>>39712391
COME ON THOUGH

IT'S FUN AS FUCK TO SAY

THE TRICK IS TO DELIVER IT AT MAX SPEED UNTIL IT ALL KIND OF BLENDS TOGETHER.

'I'M THE NEW PARTNER AT TIAMAT TIAMAT TIAMAT TIAMAT AND TIAMAT. NOW IT'S TIAMAT TIAMAT TIAMAT TIAMAT TIAMAT AND FINCH'

>>39712381
YOU COULD PROBABLY CONVERT IT TO OTHER SYSTEMS WITHOUT TOO MUCH TROUBLE, SINCE IT DOESN'T DEVIATE TOO HEAVILY FROM 3.5'S BASIC IDEAS EXCEPT FOR SOME PRETTY SYSTEM-AGNOSTIC CONCEPTS SUPPORTING THINGS LIKE SPONSORSHIP, SIGNATURE MOVES, AND OTHER ASPECTS OF SHOWMANSHIP IN A DUNGEON CRAWLING WORLD.

DND4: PRETTY COOL AND I KINDA KNOW HOW TO RUN IT SINCE I PLAY 5e BUT I DONT THINK ITS GONNA WORK THAT GOOD WITH WHAT I HAVE PLANNED; KINDA WANT TO REPLACE CLERIC AND PALADIN FOR HEALER AND KNIGHT

BESM: NIGGA THIS AINT THAT COOL AS I THOUGH BUT I GUESS IT WORKS FOR OTHER STUFF

ANIMA: I FUCKING LOVE THE SPELLBOOK, BUT MAN; CHARACTER CREATION AND THE RULES LOOK REALLY COMPLICATED; OR MAYBE IS JUST THE BIG NUMBERS AND LOTS OF THINGS WITH NAMES


ALSO; IM TRYING TO RECREATE THAT FEELING OF JAPANESE DUNGEON CRAWLERS, MAGIC; CRAZY ATTACKS AND SHIT.

I DONT LIKE MECHA NOR DRAGON BALL Z STUFF! SO I GUESS BESM DOENST WORK THAT GOOD!

WHY NOT JUST WRITE DOWN THE STATS FROM THE GAME AND MAKE A SYSTEM BASED ON IT? THERE SHOULD BE SPREADSHEETS ON GAMEFAQS FOR IT, JUST MAKE A LIST OVER WHAT EACH CLASS GAINS IN STATS WHEN THEY LEVEL. I USED TO FREQUENT A FFTA RP FORUM WHERE WE DID THAT.

GOD THAT'S A LONG TIME AGO NOW.

>>39715027
ASK YOURSELF THIS

IN WHICH WAYS, FROM A FUNDAMENTAL GAMEPLAY PERSPECTIVE, IS A DOCTOR DIFFERENT FROM A CLERIC? IS THEIR HEALING APPLIED MECHANICALLY DIFFERENTLY? DO THEY HAVE DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS AND RESOURCES? IF NOT, IT'S NOT REALLY A SEPARATE CLASS, IT'S JUST A RESKIN

SAME THING WITH GUNSLINGER VS ARCHER. IF THERE'S A MECHANICAL DIFFERENCE YOU WANT TO EXPRESS, YOU NEED TO HOMEBREW THAT SHIT AND PLAYTEST IT. BUT OTHERWISE, THERE'S NO SENSE IN MAKING IT A NEW CLASS, IF MECHANICALLY THE RESOURCES AND EFFECTS ARE THE SAME.
>>
>>39715066
FROM A GAMEPLAY PERSPECTIVE; AND ALSO LORE ONE; THE FACT THAT THERE's NO GODS; AND LOTS OF CLERIC ABILITIES DEPENDS ON THEM, LIKE DIVINE INTERVENTION FOR EXAMPLE

>THERE's NO GODS; AND LOTS OF CLERIC ABILITIES DEPENDS ON THEM, LIKE DIVINE INTERVENTION FOR EXAMPLE

NOTHING IN A CLERIC'S POWER-SET HAS A GAMEPLAY EFFECT DEPENDENT ON THE EXISTENCE OF GODS

IT READS 'YOUR TARGET CAN SPEND A HEALING SURGE AND GAIN +6 HIT POINTS', NOT 'YOUR GOD LETS YOUR TARGET SPEND A HEALING SURGE AND GAIN +6 HIT POINTS'. IT'S 'YOUR ENEMY TAKES X DAMAGE AND GRANTS COMBAT ADVANTAGE TO YOUR ALLIES UNTIL YOUR NEXT TURN', NOT 'YOUR GOD SMITES YOUR FOE FOR X DAMAGE AND GUIDES YOUR ALLIES' BLADES'

ALL JUST FLUFF, BABY.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS MECHANICALLY SIGNIFICANT ABOUT THE USE OF GUNS, ESPECIALLY IN THE CONTEXT OF THE COMBAT YOU USUALLY SEE IN D&D?

I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT A DOCTOR WOULD HAVE MORE OF A FOCUS ON ACCURATE, CRIPPLING MELEE ATTACKS AND POISONS, AS OPPOSED TO A CLERIC'S ABILITY TO RAIN DOWN HOLY FIRE.

>ANIMA: I FUCKING LOVE THE SPELLBOOK, BUT MAN; CHARACTER CREATION AND THE RULES LOOK REALLY COMPLICATED; OR MAYBE IS JUST THE BIG NUMBERS AND LOTS OF THINGS WITH NAMES

HERE'S SOMETHING THAT MAY BE OF USE TO YOU, IN THAT CASE.

>ALSO; IM TRYING TO RECREATE THAT FEELING OF JAPANESE DUNGEON CRAWLERS, MAGIC; CRAZY ATTACKS AND SHIT.

STILL SUGGESTING SWORD WORLD. IF SOME HERO TRANSLATES ALSHARD OR ARIANHROD SOMEDAY, THAT SHIT'LL BE THE STUFF FOR YOU.

ALSO THIS
>>39715162

MOSTLY TO DIFERENTIATE BOWS AND GUNS IN ABILITIES TERMS; SINCE I DONT WANT 2 PLAYERS THAT CHOOSE EACH ONE TO FEEL THEY PLAYING THE SAME CLASS WIT A DIFFERENT NAME; MAYBE GUNSLINGER CAN ALSO USE OTHER KINDS OF GUNS; LIKE CANONS; OR RIFLES OR THAT SHIT; DUNNO.OR HAVING THEM USE MAGIC BULLETS LIKE FIRE OR ICE ONES MEANWHILE RANGER FOCUS MORE ON STATUS EFFECTS AND SHIT LIKE THAT

HE'S SAYING THE PEOPLE OF IVALICE WERE ALSO MADE OF REAL WORLD PEOPLE YOU ASSHOLE, YOU ARE TRADING BACK THEIR OLD LIVES! YOU CAN'T BE LIKE "OH THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO LIVE TOO" IF YOU WANT TO SAVE THE PEOPLE THAT TURNED INTO THE MONSTERS WHICH THERE WERE FAR GREATER IN NUMBER OF. NEEDS OF THE MANY, FAGGOT.
>>
>>39715499
THAT'S LEGIT THEN. LOOK OVER SOME OTHER CLASSES, SEE IF ANY OF THEM HAVE THE MECHANICAL VIBE YOU'RE LOOKING FOR. A BARD FOR EXAMPLE IS A STRONG LEADER WHO ALSO TORMENTS THE FOE WITH PSYCHIC DAMAGE. ALSO, CONSIDER HYBRID OPTIONS, AND HOW THOSE COULD MIX APPROPRIATE EFFECTS FROM MULTIPLE CLASSES TO GIVE A PLAYER THE APPROPRIATE VIBE.

AS FOR OVERLAP, THAT'S ALWAYS GOING TO HAPPEN. ONE GUY WANTS TO PLAY A RIP-AND-TEAR BERSERKER WHO PUTS HIMSELF AT RISK TO SLAY HIS OPPONENTS, ANOTHER GUY WANTS TO PLAY A NOBLE SAVAGE WHO EMULATES A PREDATOR IN ORDER TO USE ITS STRENGTH AGAINST HIS FOES, THEY'RE BOTH GOING TO BE BARBARIANS, BUT THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE DIFFERENT BUILDS, STATS, AND APPROACHES, AND THAT'S TOTALLY FINE. DON'T WORRY SO MUCH ABOUT THINGS FEELING TOO ALIKE.

THIS PROBABLY ISN'T EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT OP BUT I FEEL THAT IT STILL DESERVES MENTION

RYUUTAMA (MONDSPRACHE FOR DRAGON'S EGG) IS A REAL COOL JAPANESE TTRPG BY A BASED JAPANESE GROGNARD NAMED ATSUHIRO OKADA
IT'S BEEN DESCRIBED AS "HAYAO MIYAZAKI'S OREGON TRAIL"
IT'S SET IN A NOBLEBRIGHT FANTASY WORLD AND YOU ARE ADVENTURERS WHO SET OUT TO EXPLORE IT
IT'S NOT AS HIGH-FLYING AND FLASHY AS WHAT YOU ARE PROBABLY LOOKING FOR
IT HAS COMBAT RULES BUT COMBAT ISN'T USUALLY THE FOCUS; YOU GET MORE EXP FROM EXPLORING THE WORLD AND RELYING ON ONE ANOTHER TO OVERCOME CHALLENGES

FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

IF YOU WANT TO GET YOUR PARTY INTO JAPANESE RPGS THIS IS WAY MORE ENTRY-LEVEL THAN MAID
IT'S JUST AS EASY TO PICK UP AND AS MAID AND HAS THE SAME RULES-LITE-BUT-STILL-ROBUST JE NE SAIS QUOI, BUT IT'S ALSO AS INCORRUPTIBLY INNOCENT AND WHOLESOME AS A GHIBLI MOVIE
>>
>>39715942
>>39715964
>>39716081
THE CONFLICT RESOLUTION MECHANICS ARE ALSO PRETTY INTERESTING

YOU HAVE 4 TOTAL STATS: STRENGTH, DEXTERITY, INTELLIGENCE, AND SPIRIT. ALL FOUR CAN HAVE A VALUE FROM 1 TO 5.
EACH NUMBER HAS A DIE ASSOCIATED WITH IT: D4 FOR 1, D6 FOR 2, D8 FOR 3, D10 FOR 4 AND D12 FOR 5.
ANY TIME YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING YOU HAVE A REASONABLE CHANCE TO FAIL AT, THE GM TELLS YOU TO ROLL 2 DICE BASED ON THE NATURE OF THE CHALLENGE. IF YOU HAD TO CLIMB A MOUNTAINSIDE, YOU WOULD ROLL YOUR STR DIE AND YOUR DEX DIE, ADD THE RESULTS TOGETHER, AND TRY TO BEAT A DC.

THIS PARTICULARLY STANDS OUT BECAUSE JAPS MOSTLY JUST USE D6'S FOR THEIR RPGS.

THOSE PEOPLE ESSENTIALLY NO LONGER EXIST BECAUSE OF DIFFERENCES IN MEMORY AND CULTURE. FOR EXAMPLE, WHO CHAUCER WAS BEFORE HAS NO BARING ON WHO HE WAS IN IVALICE AS HE IS CHAUCER IN IVALICE, NOT THE OTHER GUY. BY REVERTING THE WORLD, CHAUCER DIED. MARCHE DECIDED WHO DESERVED TO LIVE AND WHO DESERVED TO DIE. WHAT IF RANDOM ASS BAANGA NUMBER 2 DIDN'T WANT THE WORLD TO CHANGE, ARE HIS DESIRES ANY LESS VALID THAN MARCHE'S?

•D&D 4E FOR ACCESSIBILITY AND DOING THIS SHIT: >>39703254
•BIG EYE, SMALL MOUTH FOR APPROPRIATENESS
•GURPS BECAUSE GURPS
•ANIMA FOR FLASH, BUT IT IS PRETTY GRINDY

>>39715499
I DUNNO MAN THAT SEEMS MORE LIKE YOU'RE GETTING STUCK ON FLAVOR=CRUNCH, WHICH IS A PRETTY TOXIC STANCE. A CLERIC'S WHATEVER THE FUCK CAN EASILY BE A DOCTOR WITH A SATCHEL FULL OF CHEMICAL BULLSHIT AND A SYRINGE GUN. CALLING DOWN THE HOLY FIRE IS JUST A FLAVOR LINE. IT CAN BE STABBING A DUDE IN THE NECK WITH A NERVE IRRITANT JUST AS EASILY. ALL THAT MATTERS IS THE MECHANIC, AND YOU DON'T LOSE ANYTHING FOR CALLING YOUR CLERIC (OR ALCHEMIST) A DOCTOR. SAME THING WITH GUNSLINGERS, DOG, THEY CAN BE A RANGED ROGUE SUPER EASILY.
>>
>>39719686

>TOXIC

YOU'RE RETARDED

NOBODY IS SAYING A CLERIC CAN'T BE REFLUFFED AS A DOCTOR, HE'S SAYING THAT HE DOESN'T WANT HIS PLAYERS TO CHOOSE LITERALLY THE SAME CLASS BUT OH IT'S NOT THE SAME CLASS "CUZ IT'S FLUFFED DIFFERENT"

IT'S UTTERLY UNSATISFYING TO HAVE YOUR ARCHETYPE'S SHTICK BE EXPRESSED AS A DIFFERENT ARCHETYPE'S SHTICK AND THE ONLY THING THAT DIFFERENTIATES THEM ARE FLUFFY TERMS. FUCK, EVEN GENERALIST SYSTEMS LIKE MUTANTS AND MASTERMINDS OR WILD TALENTS CODIFY THE "FLUFF" BEHIND AN ABILITY AS BEING FROM A PARTICULAR SOURCE (MAGIC, TECHNOLOGY, NATURAL ABILITIES, MUTATIONS, ETC), MEANING THAT AT THE VERY LEAST IT INTERACTS WITH CERTAIN MECHANICS DIFFERENTLY (USUALLY WHATEVER EQUIVALENT OF "POWER NEGATION" THE GAME HAS)

I WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED IN AN ETRIAN ODYSSEY HOMEBREW. AS OTHERS HAVE MENTIONED, THE MEDIC IS AN EASY REFLUFF OF A HEALING FOCUSED CLERIC, AND YOU COULD EVEN WORK SOME OF THE MACE ABILITIES IN.

3d&T is good for animefaggotry. It is very simple. So simple in fact that your 'weapon' is just a 'skin'; so it can be anything, giant swords, paper, rocks, toy hammers, etc. The books are very focused on 'anime' adventures as well.

THAT'S NOT THE SAME THING AT ALL. IN M&M, THOSE ARE MINOR MECHANICAL VARIATIONS. THE FLUFF IS HOW THE POWER DOES ITS THING, AND THE THING IT DOES IS THE CRUNCH. IN D&D4E, TWO CLERICS CAN PLAY VERY VERY DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE YOU CAN CHOOSE EVEN YOUR CORE MECHANIC TO BE A DIFFERENT THING, AS WELL AS POWER SELECTION AND FEAT CHOICES. THESE ARE SIZEABLE CHANGES. TWO CLERICS WITH THE SAME CHOICES WILL WORK THE SAME, NO MATTER HOW YOU FLUFF THEM; THIS, AT LEAST, IS TRUE. BUT THE FLUFF DOES NOT NEED A WHOLE NEW CLASS OR FUNCTION OR BOOK TO ITSELF BECAUSE IT IS SO MALLEABLE. THIS IS A CORE PROBLEM OF GAMES LIKE PATHFINDER, WHERE THE BLOAT IS STAGGERING AND THEREFORE THE BALANCE AND FUNCTION DESTROYED. BY RESPECTING YOUR FLUFF CHOICE AT ALL TIMES, YOU WILL NATURALLY MAKE DIFFERENT MECHANICAL CHOICES, AND EVEN THE SAME MECHANICAL EFFECTS WILL INTERACT DIFFERENTLY WITH THE NARRATIVE AND THE GAME WORLD.

WHAT POINT ARE YOU EVEN TRYING TO MAKE? A GROWN MAN INJECTING A COMBATANT WITH PROPRIETARY CHEMICALS AND AN ELVEN HARPY CALLING DOWN HOLY FIRE ON APOSTATES IS NOT THE SAME THING IN THE STORY, BUT THEY MIGHT BE REFLECTED THE SAME WAY IN DICE FORMULA. THAT IS NOT A PROBLEM. YOU AREN'T PLAYING A SPREADSHEET. YOU'RE PLAYING A CHARACTER.
>>
>>39729174
>YOU AREN'T PLAYING A SPREADSHEET. YOU'RE PLAYING A CHARACTER.

>LE ROLEPLAY NOT ROLLPLAY FAEC :^)

THE POINT WAS YOUR INABILITY TO UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE WANT MEANINGFUL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CHARACTERS AND NOT SIMPLE REFLUFFING IS EVIDENCE OF YOU BEING A FAG
>>
>>39729174

>>39715162
>>
>>39730187
IT SOUNDS LIKE OP WANTS A FANTASY SETTING, THOUGH, WHERE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLERIC AND HEALER REALLY IS MOSTLY SEMANTICS
>>
>>39730370
HEALER IN MOST JAPANESE FANTASY SETTINGS AND DUNGEON CRAWLERS IS REALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE CLERIC CONCEPT FROM DND AND SIMILAR GAMES THOUGH. LIKE HE SAID; MEDICS/HEALERS USE POISON OR STATUS EFFECTS OR AIMING TO SPECIFICS PART OF THE BODY INSTEAD OF JUST CHANNELING THEIR DEITIES
