but like I said it pretty much renders a magic users all but useless, if their strongest weapon is unusable until after the fighter has killed them.

 Also a fighter would be useless, if the wizard could cast all his strongest and deadliest spells in an instant.

And I don't know, if you have actually played a round, but this isn't a problem, if the wizard needs a bit of time, to cast a spell (same problem with Ki techniques, they aren't instantoues either). It would be a problem, if this powers (magic and ki) could be used without accumulation. An wizard, who could cast in the first round of a combat every spell he knows, as long as he has some zeon in his pool, could cast about 5 to 10 area attack spells, energy based, each with a base damage of 80 or more, with the initiative of an unarmed fighter, and the warrior could only make about 1 or 2 attacks per round, with a base damage around 60 to 110 (higher base damage would mean lower initiatve). This would I call "gamebreaking".

The wizard of my group had enough accumulation to cast a shield spell in the first around. After this, he started accumulating for "bigger" spells etc..

So long,

i think that, I finally understand the power be it KI or magic system and alot of the character concepts have to readjust, to allow for the power pools.

sorry for the aggravation, but now when I build characters I can make the necessary adjustment.

The build looks ok as far as I can tell. I would be more apt to give more time to this had there been a background attached. It is one thing if you have the background in your head and can think to yourself "well Grimm has *this power* because of *this happening in their past*, but we, your readers do not have that advantage.

I was going to build unique character using a sheele familiar but it was not cost effective at low levels, now at higher levels it can be quite cool but it would take between 5 and 6 levels to be what I wanted.  Now working on a giant Mentalist Warrior.  Will post when done, background story is always seperate I have a tendacy to write long backstories.  Sorry,

Seems better, but there are a few things I don't understand.

1) How comes the character has 7 Advantages and no Disadvantages. Even considering you gain 1CP for being a Level 2 character, I can't still see how you get from 3CPs to 7.

 

2) He is a NEPHILIM Jayan, isn't he?

 

3) What is Legendary Character 65 points?

 

4) Since this character couldn't spend on Secondary Abilities and has no Jack of All Trades, how comes that he has positive values in any secondary ability?

 

5) You cannot buy that huge number of martial arts for reduced cost, but obly the first. Also, where do DPs spent on martial arts come from? They should be from the Combat Primary Abilities pool.

Since I really enjoy reading other characters I post mine hoping others also enjoy this. I’ve translated her into English. Because I’m german there may be many errors (grammar, wording and content). There are more information about Sofia, her family and her mentor, but I want to keep it readable. Her true father is an ingame-plot, but his identity remains hidden so far (our GM thought it would be nice to implement it in the game – I still have no idea about him). Sadly we haven’t played since half a year, so I don’t know if we’ll ever play this game again.

 

Description:

Sofia is a young woman of 20 years. She tops most of the people since she is 1.95 meters tall. Although she is tall, weighing 99 kilograms, she looks rather athletic and muscular than skinny. She has a straight but not stiff bearing.

Her reddish to reddishly blond hairs lay till her shoulders and are properly combed. It seems that her haircut is something in between good-looking and combat-suitability. Almost emerald-green eyes complete her nice although not beautiful face (Appearance 6). Her lips are fine and show a real nice smile which can mostly be seen, when she’s looking at playing children. At these moments her eyes are sparkling of joy. There are times she seems to look at something other people can’t see. But maybe she’s just daydreaming.

She has a fine and quiet voice which sounds calm and smooth. But there are times she raises her voice and then it reaches a great distance. You can see that she is familiar in giving and following orders. Her whole manner inspires confidence. In the way she behaves there’s something that most people are more open-minded and less reluctant that other times they meet strangers (Charm).

Her body is well-groomed. She is an extraordinary warrior since she has no apparent scars – not even sword calluses. The only special mark is a birth mark in form of a horse on her right shoulder blade. It’s probably a freak of nature.

Her equipment and her clothes are fitting like a second skin. Everything seems to be tailor-made for her. The only jewelry she’s wearing is a small and simple necklace with a cross made of silver. It’s a keepsake of her mother. She proudly wears the sign of Tol Rauko on her shield and the back of her cloak.


History:

Sofia grew up without a father as a daughter of an innkeeper. Her mother Anabelle Weisz never told her who he was. The inn was in a small and unimportant village named Corba in Helenia. Her stepfather Marek Rudy was the blacksmith of this village. She had a half-brother named Andrzej, who was seven years younger.

She was always tall. A twelve year old girl, rather skinny and awkward-looking girl naturally got bullied. But this was only the casual teasing children used to do. She had a very good childhood. She had to help in the inn, of course, but the work was not that much. There weren’t much traveller and the few visiting the inn only stayed for a night. The rest of the time she secretly watched her stepfather taking care of the horse shoes of the beasts. It was forbidden to help, because her stepfather didn’t like it to have a girl in the forge. Her mother never said anything regarding this issue.

The rest of the day she spent with rollicking and day-dreaming. Since she never met her real father she pictured him in her thoughts. In her mind he was a gigantic and strong man. Wearing a shiny armor he rode on a white horse all over the world fighting evil. He was friendly and helpful to the poor. He rescued damsels in distresses and other romantic things a young girl could dream of.

She was a young girl when she recognized that she could see things others couldn’t. Talking to her mother about the “Little Wind-Creatures” playing on the street, Anabelle thought this was only Sofia’s fantasy. But since Sofia didn’t stop talking about her playmates her mother became annoyed and talked with her husband. The following beating Sofia received taught her never to mention them again.

Sofia was ten years old when her stepfather died because of pneumonia. She felt kind of sad, not strongly – he wasn’t her real father more like a strict acquaintance. Her mother tried not to show her grieve before her children. But Sofia heard her sobbing in the night. She never told her younger brother – he was too young, anyway. But on this day she swore she would help her mother as good as she could. She never tried to sneak away anymore when she was supposed to help. Anabelle recognized this but never asked her daughter about the change of spirit.

Sofia always was a tough girl. Bruised knees, scratched legs and hands never took long to heal. In fact they healed faster than the scratches her acquaintances had. But nobody ever thought it strange – at least Sofia herself. It was just the way it was. The day her mother was very ill and had to stay in the bed – a luxury she couldn’t afford – Sofia took care about the household. Cooking a chicken broth she cut herself deep in the finger. She was right on the way to her mother – crying for pain and shock – as she remembered that her mother was ill and couldn’t likely help her. Sobbing she returned to the kitchen, wrapped some cloth around her finger and finished cutting the vegetables and making the soup. At the next morning there wasn’t a cut anymore. If it wasn’t for the bloodstained cloth there would be no evidence that the knife had tasted blood.
In the year 982, Sofia was twelve years old, the war came to Corba. Without any strategic or political importance it became victim of soldier’s greed. There was plundering, burning of houses and slaughtering the inhabitants. Anabelle hid her two children but was caught herself on the way to her own hideout. She was raped and killed afterwards. Sofia was in shock and wasn’t able to breath, walk or make any noise. This probably saved her life. Her younger brother began to cry and ran to the body of his mother. A casual hit with a mace stroke him down.
Then the soldiers left the remains of the village. Sofia staggered through the smoldering ruins of the former inn taking her mother’s small necklace. Without any clear thought she wandered through the village. The shock, the loss of her family, the smoking ruins – a dirty skinny girl covered with ash staggering around. Then her sight faded.

Intimidated. Helpless. That was the way she felt. Her first memories of the room she became awake were a barren room made of stone. She still had the smell of burned wood in her nose although there was no fire to see. She was alone in the room. A simple curtain hid what was outside. Every time she heart steps she closed her eyes pretending to be unconscious or asleep. As soon as she could be sure she was alone she reopened carefully her eyes. There was food and water brought to her bed. Her injuries were tended. Why would anybody treat her like this?

“Playing unconscious” continued for two more days. Then a deep voice of a man told her to stop playing dead and look to him. Scared to death and almost crying she opened her eyes. She never knew why she followed these instructions. The look at the man told her, that he had to be about 40 years old and a well-groomed appearance. Although he wore simple clothing there was something special about him. His whole behavior was something Sofia never had seen. He was sitting on the side of her bed. And although he was tall and muscular his presence wasn’t threatening. He said his name was Johann Luminos and asked her about hers. She told him shy. He smiled and ensured her she didn’t have to be afraid anymore. He wouldn’t allow anybody to harm her. There was something about the way he talked and looked at her that she felt confident and believed in his words. Then he stood up and left the room. At the doorway he looked at her once again.

It took some days till Sofia was allowed to leave her room. But she stood up and looked through the window. She was in a house a little apart from a small village. It seemed to be a house of an at least well-situated owner. But she never found out who the owner was. The day her rescuer and she left her eyes nearly popped out of her head. Johann wore a shiny armor and rode a white horse. She felt like in one of her dreams and secretly thought of him as his father who came back to take her with him. Everything would become alright. During the following days her shyness faded away and asked about him. With a lot of patience he answered most of them. But some questions he didn’t said anything else but: “You’ll find out, when the time is right.”

Johann hadn’t any family of his own. He said it wouldn’t be fair for them, since he is on the road most of the time. So he likely wouldn’t be a good husband and father. And god made him this way. So it would be his responsibility to act like this. He lived on his own principle: “ Be courageous when facing your enemies. Be brave and honest so god may love you. Always tell the truth even when it means your death. Protect the defenseless.” Sofia took the principles and made them her own.

At first she only helped in the kitchen, cleaned the equipment of others and learned to tend smaller injuries. Lower services but she completed them without complaint eager to please Johann. All she wanted to make him proud of her. She followed his orders without questioning them. She asked questions out of curiosity, of course. It didn’t tool long and she slipped out that she could see strange things and creatures. But in contrast to her mother who hadn’t believed her he only nod and told her that she was blessed.

She was a pupil true to Johann’s teachings. It surprised her that she learned handling a sword without many difficulties. It seemed she was born to hold a sword. Johann took care to give her a proper weapons training. The years passed by. And although Johann was on the road while she stayed in an outpost of Tol Rauko there were times they could meet. They formed a hearty quasi father and daughter relationship. She never sought a boyfriend in one of her comrades. Full of idealism, childish maybe blinded by Johann’s example she wanted to be like him. It was the time she gave herself a new name. She adopted the name Corba so that she would always remember and honor not only her family but her whole village and the harm it suffered.

The years flew by and Sofia became promoted step by step. As a former innkeeper’s daughter without any fortune she led half a hundred cavalry. Sure she mostly stood aside and rather kept other people out of harm’s way than to deal with the problem by herself. But her duty wasn’t less important. Filled with proud she travelled the land wherever she was sent. And in the back of her mind there was always the thought that she finally could protect the weak and fight injustice. On the spare occasions she was allowed to accompany Johann on his travels. If it became dangerous he ordered her to stay where it was safe. But her awareness of the supernatural was a tool he knew to use. So she enjoyed riding with him. Once he took her to a social party. He even bought her an expensive dress. And although she didn’t know any ball dances she managed not to embarrass herself and more important Johann.

There are times Sofia can’t believe how different her life became. As a Member of Tol Rauko she belongs to a privileged group of people. But she didn’t become spoiled and still does know what it means to suffer privations. But she also knows who nice it is to be able to buy herself a wonderful dress – and wear it, of course.

It hasn’t been long ago since her mentor died. The message of his death hit her real hard. She had never believed such a strong and kind man could ever been defeated. At first she demanded to know und what circumstances he died and who was responsible. But as soon as she regained control over her rage the only question she wanted to have answered was: “Is this death a death Johann would appreciate as a good one?” The rest of the day she stayed in her small room in mourning.
From time to time you can see the loss in her eyes. But there’s no sign of rage or grief anymore. Her facial expression shows determination but not grimness. All she wants to do is to live by the standard her patron Johann lived.

I know I'm on the losing side fighting supernatural. I'm planing to develop more KI-Abilities and finally the technique I've posted here a long time ago. But the whole thing is a very slow process (learning table in DE used). Luckily this isn't a single player game and the rest of the group is quiet capable of dealing with strange creatures and enemies. In addition we rarely fight in our games.

Elric of Melniboné said:

 

Seems better, but there are a few things I don't understand.

1) How comes the character has 7 Advantages and no Disadvantages. Even considering you gain 1CP for being a Level 2 character, I can't still see how you get from 3CPs to 7.

 

 

Agreed.  That makes absolutely no sense.  You have a total of 3CP at character creation, which you can add to by taking up to 3 disadvantages.  The MOST CP you can have to spend on Advantages as a starting character is 9, but that means you would've taken 3 different 2CP Disadvantages.  So at that stage your character is more or less Blind, with a Serious Illness, and Damned in a truly horrible way.

To have 7 CP on Advantages (even taking into account the extra CP at Level 2), you need to have 3CP worth of Disdvantages (either 3 x 1CP flaws, or a 1CP and a 2CP flaw).

Quite honestly, "Been Around 2" is a waste of an Advantage unless you're only planning on taking the character a couple of levels.  After that it becomes redundant.  I know that Jayan Nephilim gain less XP per session than humans, but if you're planning on using him long-term, you'd be better off taking "Learning 1" to counteract that, and letting the character develop to Level 2 naturally.

Elric of Melniboné said:

2) He is a NEPHILIM Jayan, isn't he?

 

 

 

Certainly looks that way.

Elric of Melniboné said:

3) What is Legendary Character 65 points?

 

 

 

That's one of the GM Toolkit Character Creation methods.  The "standard" build using that system is 55 points to spend on your characteristics, but you can flex it down to 45 points for a more mundane campaign, or up to 65 points for a Legendary campaign.

However, vaxx01, you've got your maths wrong.  A "10" in any stat actually costs 11 points, not 10.  So you've actually spent 66 points, not 65 (and then added your +1 to Strength for being a Jayan).

Elric of Melniboné said:

4) Since this character couldn't spend on Secondary Abilities and has no Jack of All Trades, how comes that he has positive values in any secondary ability?

 

 

 

Well actually it looks like he's only spent 30DP on Psychic Primaries.

Although why you'd create a Warrior Mentalist with only 30DP on Psychic stuff, I have no idea.

Elric of Melniboné said:

5) You cannot buy that huge number of martial arts for reduced cost, but obly the first. Also, where do DPs spent on martial arts come from? They should be from the Combat Primary Abilities pool.

 

 

 

Agreed.  10 & 25 points for your first MA (presumably Tai Chi, since it's the only one that you've taken to Advance level), and then the rest are at full price.

And they MUST come from Combat Primaries (as does your Limit of Agon).

Anima Character profile: Adrassil

Personality: Melancholic/Choleric

  • The differences between this combination and its 'reverse' (Choleric/Melancholic) is that these types are much more reserved and 'shy', in a fearful kind of way; less confident and outgoing. They have many of the fears of the melancholic/phlegmatic, internally - they are scared of rejection by others, critical of their own flaws, etc - yet their choleric half leads to an increase in pride that may prevent them from making these inner doubts clear to others unless they know them intimately.
  • They may act strong-willed, and emotionally tough, and generally have a 'cold and cool' air about how they talk and act, but it could be said perhaps that they're 'crying inside' at times.
  • They have less of a problem compared to the melancholic/phlegmatic with hurting people, especially enemies. While melancholic/phlegmatics may submit, retreat and cry if hurt badly, melancholic/cholerics are more likely to retaliate, to hurt their aggressor, to seek vengeance.
  • They can derive amusement from the pain of others, inflicted by themselves or otherwise, but this may be because they feel so poorly about themselves that they need to see others belittled, hurt or miserable in order to feel good about themselves and to sate their choleric need for 'dominance'.
  • Melancholics tend to be 'competent', because they can focus and they're analytical, and melancholic/cholerics are no exception. They may be proud of what they can do, perhaps openly, unlike the melancholic/phlegmatic who would be averse to bragging.
  • Both melancholic and choleric are stubborn temperaments, so this combination leads to tenacity to see that their opinions are taken notice of or that their will is done. Like the choleric blends, they may have difficulty admitting that they're wrong… but tend towards self-deprecation when they know that they are.
  • Like the choleric/melancholic, they feel that they can analyse, define, and understand others but that they themselves are complex, mysterious and elusive, beyond the discernment of the other mere mortals who are below them.
  • They are bitter, negative and pessimistic by nature, and can lack tact when interacting with others. They give off 'leave me alone' and 'don't dare offend me' vibes.
  • They can be sadistic and hurt others, but they're also masochistic and hurt themselves just as much.
  • Unlike the melancholic/phlegmatic, they get angry and have outbursts, but they are moved to this rather slowly
  • They are calculating and manipulative, observing others and essentially looking down upon them, perhaps considering how they could use others or even wondering how others may be using them.
  • They are generally excellent at what they choose to do, if they choose to do anything at all, as they have a mind fit for planning and for controlling. This is the mind of many a strategic general throughout history, the mind of a conqueror.

Melancholic

  • Needs to see results

  • Dislikes following
  • Contrary
  • Condescending, especially if you try to defy them
  • Likely to offer advice
  • Criticises others
  • Loves winning; likely to humiliate the one they defeated/dominated
  • Gives advice or help which isn't asked for
  • Tends to blame others.

Background
Adrassil was born in a large capital city, the son of a wealthy trader and his trophy wife he was brought up for the first two years of his life in a loveless marriage. This was until his father was arrested by the local authorities for the murder of a competing merchant and executed. The law man responsible for his father's capture forced Adrassil to watch, as it would teach the boy not to follow after his father, which traumatized him immensely. His family were stripped of their wealth and left out on the street. His mother insisting right from the start that the whole thing was a set up and that the merchant was still alive, he’d faked his death and framed Adrassil’s father for it. For six years Adrassil grew up on streets, during this time his mother became hopelessly addicted to drugs and the six year old Adrassil had to beg on the streets and eventually became a pickpocket to survive. He became incredibly agile and acrobatic by using rooftops to escape the guards and his victims. He did this for years, becoming very effective in his skills as a pickpocket and parkour practitioner. He became infamous in his city as the “Cut purse monkey.”

It was through his antics he supported his mother and they made a decent living. When Adrassil turned eleven his mother died from overdosing leaving Adrassil alone but he wasn’t truly alone he had plenty of friends, fellow urchins.

It was only a month after his mother’s death when he was tracked down and taken in by a beautiful, mysterious woman who far exceeded the ten year old’s skill in acrobatics easily despite Adrassil’s best efforts.

She turned out to be a woman working for a mercenary group called the Black Reach company, she’d heard of his skills and wanted to recruit him as her apprentice and her name was Glaitis.

He at first refused but she gave him an ultimatum either join with her or she’ll hand him over to the authorities. Faced with this he had no choice but to accept.

So they travelled north, to a whole new city in another country and he began his training under Glaitis. For thirteen years he travelled and was taught under her in the way of the blade, stealth, battle and intrigue as well as everything, from persuasion to the sciences. Young Adrassil excelled in blade work and martial arts which he both loved, but also used all his spare time learning to write stories and paint. When he was sixteen he performed his first true contract with his mistress, together they were sent to kill an entire bandit encampment.

Adrassil also showed a keen intellect, he was actually of genius level intelligence he was also a handsome charming and charismatic young man that was very much lusted after by the girls, which Adrassil enjoyed immensely. Glaitis taught him briefly also of how to use his Ki but she as well wasn’t so good at it either. They worked together for another seven years, Adrassil losing his virginity to Glatis when he turned eighteen. (lucky bastard)

Many, many battles they fought, fulfilling dozens of contracts and always to a high standard.

For their last few years together they were lovers, despite Glaitis being ten years his senior.

They went their separate ways and at twenty four Glaitis pronounced him good enough to be made into a full fledged Shadow and was sent on this assignment, to set up a small base for the Blackreach company in Kingsley.. Also he’s stumbled over evidence that his father may actually have been innocent of his crime, he isn’t too sure whether he wants to delve deeper or not yet but there maybe a conspiracy at hand within the governments and royalty. That his mother may have been telling the truth about his father being framed and his victim may still be alive.

He is keeping this find a secret, for now anyway.

sorry about the primary thing thing and martial arts will fix it, two he has dis advantages 3 cp worth forgot to put them up there,  drop the Int by 1 point

actuall I sat and reread the martial arts and combat moduals and it is NOT counted as a part of you primary cost, the only limit is that you can have 1 style for every 40 pts of combat ability. 150/40=3. Niether are Limits but you are only limited to one unless you pick up the advantage that lets you get 2

Total MK:190(40 from Class, 120 from Martial Mastery 3, 30 from Tai Chi)

yes he is a Nephilim Jayan, the only reason I listed him as human is that it reads that these are humans with other races reincarnated souls

Disadvantages Insufferable 1, Exclusive Weapon 1(Unarmed), One Power at a Time 1

Psychic levels are so low becuase for how the build goes

With the Introvert Mental Pattern 1 he does not need a Projection IF he targetd him self ONLY, 2 any power placed in an innate slot is raised by 1 level, 3 any sustained power is raised by 1 level. the goal then with this character is to aquire the innate slots.  Which he has a free point and will get another at next level and another innate slot.

example he cast Total Increase at minimum 180 +1 to all Physical and Perception and puts in his innate slot it goes to 240 for introvert, then 280 for amplified sustained power, final boost + 4 on his stats Str: 9 plus half fover 10 11, Dex agil, con are all the same Percp however is a 6 +4 10

as for the secondary abilities

Secondary Abilities:
- (2/1) Athletic:
- (2/1) Social:
- (2/1) Perception:
Notice: (40/20)
- (3/1) Intellectual:
- (2/1) Vigor:
Feats of Strength: (60/30)
- (2/1) Subterfuge:
Hide: (40/20)
Stealth: (40/20)
- (2/1) Creative:
Total DP:180
 

which translates to

Secondary Abilities
Notice: 25/30 (20 w/o Char Mod)
Feats of Strength: 40/50 (30 w/o Char Mod)
Hide: 30/40 (20 w/o Char Mod)
Stealth: 40/60 (20 w/o Char Mod)
 

Limits cost MK not DP

so take out Kempo

you are right about the other 2 martial arts

 So the Martial Arts List reads like this

Tai Chi  25 DP( base 10 DP, 15 Advanced)

Shotokan 20 DP

Muay Thai 20 DP

You're right about Limits - my bad, they're MK only.

But the MA and Modules stuff are definitely Primaries.

From the Core Rules (Dominus Exxet doesn't change this)…..

P56 - General Weapons Modules:  "These modules are listed as a Primary Ability for combat.  Therefore any DP invested in these modules count towards a character's point distribution limit."

P56 - The Archetypical Weapons Modules: "As with the foregoing, these are considered Primary Abilities for combat."

P57 - The Style Modules:  "As with the foregoing, these are considered Primary Abilities for combat."

P58 - Mystical Modules:  "These modules act as Primary Supernatural Abilities.  Therefore any DP invested in these modules count towards a character's point distribution limit."

P58 - The Psychic Module:  "This module acts as a Primary Psychic Ability. Therefore any DP invested in this module count towards a character's point distribution limit."

P58 - Martial Arts:  "… in a way, they are equivalent to an Empty-hands Weapons Module,…"

Now it doesn't explicitly STATE that MA cost Primary DP in either the Core Rules or Dominus Exxet (which, I'll admit, has surprised me).  But the implication of them being Empty-handed Weapons Modules is that they do.  This is generally accepted by everyone both here and at the Anima Forum (and everybody I know who plays the game).  I'm sure if you search hard enough, you'll find that this has been confirmed by Anima Studios somewhere on one or both of the forums, but unfortunately I don't have time to do this search.

It's a clarification that should have been made more obvious in Dominus Exxet, but it appears they forgot. Surprising, but there we are.

Disadvantages Insufferable 1, Exclusive Weapon 1(Unarmed), One Power at a Time 1

 

 

 

I seem to remember that Anima Studios have ruled somewhere (and again, I forget where) that if you take "Exclusive Weapon: Unarmed", you get one "exclusive" Martial Art.  As soon as you use any others in conjunction, you start paying the -30 penalty.

Most GMs just say that you can't take Exclusive Weapon with an Unarmed character at all.

The limitation makes sense, because otherwise "Exclusive Weapon" is really no Disadvantage for an Unarmed character at all.  Every single Tao in existence would take that Disadvantage.  This is also the reason that the advantage explicitly excludes Mystic and Psychic archetypes (because they're not really suffering a penalty at all if they take it).

If you want a fairly "light" Disadvantage, do what a lot of players do and pick "Deep Sleeper".  At least it gives something that the GM can use against you, even if it doesn't crop up all that often (Now watch your GM make sure every attack on your party happens while you're asleep!).
