  • [3e OOC] Slayer's Scoobies [Cancelled]

    With my Gulf Coast Guardians game wrapping up, I am thinking I want to run a lower power game. I have been watching a lot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer lately, which inspired this idea.

    "In every generation there is a chosen one... she alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer."
    Her name was Diedre West and her Watcher was Miguel Ramos. She came to Pineview when she was in 9th grade. She died two months ago on her 20th birthday along with her Watcher stopping the entire town from being sucked away to a Hell dimension. There is still evil out there threatening Pineview, and only you can stop it.

    The premise is that all the PCs are former Scoobies of the Slayer. The Slayer and her Watcher died recently and you are all that is left to defend your town. There will be no Slayers, potential Slayers, or Watchers in the game; its all up to the PCs. Also, PCs can't be demon or vampires, but ex-demons might be allowed. I would only accept one mage type and one tech type. The more unique the character concept, the better.

    I would be looking for between 4 and 6 players. You could be PL6/105pp or PL7/90pp. The game will be 3e. There are a few House Rules.

    3E House Rules
    Skills
    • Circumstance modifiers (+5/-5) can be bought off with a Feature, e.g. Feature 1: Perfect Balance (Not Vulnerable while balancing; Acrobatics), or Improved Feint (Can Feint as a Move action; Deception). This is done per maneuver, per skill.

    Powers
    • Regeneration costs 2pp/rank.

    Maneuvers
    • While everyone can use the trade-off maneuvers (Accurate Attack/All-Out Attack/Defensive Attack/Power Attack) +/-2 you must possess the Advantages to combine them, e.g. AOA/PA used together. You are limited to a total +/-5 trade-off, e.g. AOA 3/PA 2. You can exceed this cap with Extra Effort.

    A vote for second edition 😀

    Are we making Xander, Cordelia, Willow, et cetera or will we make our own characters?

      Unique characters. Its not Buffy who died, but a different Slayer. We are not in the Buffyverse, just a similar one. So no Season 7.

      A few more details. Her name was Diedre West and her Watcher was Miguel Ramos. She came to Pineview when she was in 9th grade; she died at age 20. So you knew her for about 5 years. You don't have to be the same age, but you should be close. And I won't dismiss the idea of her having siblings.

        Can we have powers, assuming we had setting appropriate excuse?

          Yes. Powers are acceptable.

            Would be interested in playing, I have a character concept in mind but would prefer 3e since it's the only version of the game I've played. Not sure if you would consider my character the tech character or not, I'll private message the concept to you.

            Also, Vote for 3e.

              Were you planning on having any house rules for magic? Maybe expertise: magic being broken down into several subskills rather than a single one?

              If you don't want a Watcher character, are you also looking at restricting information in other ways?

              I have a few ideas from the old Buffy RPG floating around that might be fun to bring over.

                No Watcher is more about no organizations and no big free library.

                As for Magic, I don't see there be sub-specialties in the Skill.

                That being said, I would allow the Task Focus Feat from Mecha and Manga, regardless of what edition we end up in.

                  I like it. Count me interested, though I would vote for 3e over 2.

                  Did you have a PL in mind?

                    I think I have enough interest offline and online to turn this into a recruiting thread. I am going to go with 2nd Edition. Ignore the House Rules in my Settings thread for now.

                      I have a character who is perfect for this kind of game. I just need to give him a suitable revamp and maybe adjust his backstory a bit to fit.

                        Completely unfamiliar with 2e, so if that's what the game is running I'll have to bow out. Good luck gamers.

                          Sorry, 2nd ed isn't an option for me. I hope that you guys have a great game!

                            Going to have to bow out as well. 2e just isn't my bag. Best of luck to everyone. Good slaying.

                              Name: Murikos Estomalos
                              Age: 28
                              Ethnicity:
                              Greek
                              Archetype:
                              Warrior



                              Bio: It was his fault. If only he would had the strength of Zeus, if he had the grace of Hera, the strength of Atlas, the valor of Hercules. If only...
                              But lamentations aren't going to save this town. He needed to step up, and avenge the death of his friends, and protect those who are still breathing...
                              Ever since his father fought that demon, so valiantly, even when he was mortally wounded, Murikos had understood the value of self sacrifice and courage. He was the heir of his father's legacy, he would carry his armor and brandish the power of the old gods in the fight against the dark influence of Hades. The agents of the dark lord are many, and with many names. The people of Pineview was lucky to have a slayer and a watcher to protect them, but not any more. Now they had him, and the others. Even if they would met their ultimate destiny like Diedre... even then, it would be worth it.
