I picked this game up recently, and I just fell in love with the system. It fits so well with so many things, but even if you don't warp it a little bit their world is very rich ( though, a bit heavy with Christianity. Not that it's a bad thing. )
In order to get my friends into it I've been trying to trim and organize the character sheets a bit ( they're pretty darn intimidating, and not to mention clunky. ) I'll be happy to e-mail what I've got so far, and I'd like any input you guys can give me on that.
Also, as opposed to thrusting them into a beautiful new world I was going to be running several one shot sessions with things they're a bit more familiar with, just because it is such a flexible game. I've got a few house rules for the specific scenarios, and I thought you might like the ideas as well.
Of course, it's a must. We have a Ki System built in, so how could I avoid it? The only additional thing I would be adding to this is an "Improvised Ki Technique" system.
ATK Bonus Primary Secondary MK Maint. Lvl
+10 2 4 5 1
+25 3 5 5 2 Simply enough, you don't need to have a Dominion Technique mastered to use it.
+40 4 6 10 3 When you try to use it, though, the costs add up ( so it's only good for low level techs.)
+50 5 8 15 4 For example, ATK +10 would cost 2, and 1 to maintain. However, Atk + 75 would cost
+75 8 11 20 6 a whopping 22 (2+3+4+5+8) , and 16( 1+2+3+4+6 ) to maintain! This also works for
+90 12 15 25 8 improving already known techniques. Add whatever you improve it by to the cost.
+100 14 18 30 10 I just thought it was appropriate for the Dragonball series, because they all of a sudden
+125 18 22 35 12 2 decide to improve or develop new techniques on the fly all the time.
+150 22 26 40 14 2
+175 26 32 45 16 3
+200 30 36 50 18 3
Another easy transition, mostly because the five elements are easy to work into it. Make "Affinity With One Branch of the Tree" a one dot Advantage where they pick one of the paths, and specify they need to pick Fire, Earth, or the like. Outside of that, let people use Intelligence, Willpower, or Power to use it.
This is Copy Pasta, except they have Artifacts that let them use the elements.
Power Puff Girls-
It's a little creepy, but it's good for a laugh more than that.
Once again, the Ki system is brilliant. Maybe give the classes ten to fifteen extra MK per level to diversify it.
The Invocation system is just great for Final Fantasy summons. The only thing I would need to work on is a Blue Mage class...
I'm working on some other bits, just fleshing it out and getting it in the open.
