August 9, 2009
Updated for however many days it's been since the last one. Still waiting on a response from Piccolo about the Storyline, as well as an image for Moonflower from Johnny.
Johnny's Companion character has (finally ) been added. Try to get me a picture sometime soon....
Yeah, so I pretty much dropped the ball on this one. I have no excuse why it wasn't done on Sunday other than I'm lazy. It possibly would have been done yesterday, but I had some interesting stomach problems after eating some leftover pizza. It's up now, though.
I'm placing this Thursday (June 25th) as the last day to change any of your characters (see the forum post entitled "New toons"). If you want to change any of them, please have it done by Thursday. Next weekend I'll do a storyline of some sort; I'll post a sign-up on the forum when I get an idea of what I want to do....
Began reworking the NPC page. Got the pictures up for all the Earth trainers, but not the profiles. The ones no longer in use are still on the page though.
Added Johnny Bartlett. Since this is the first time you'll be playing a Gladiator game, feel free to ask any questions on the forum. Someone should be able to provide a timely reply.
I've altered (lowered) the cost/time requirements for Artifacts purchased from Braddock's shop to fit more in line with the Experience requirements.
As posted yesterday on the forum: I've decided to try and liven up the game by allowing you all to gain additional experience while performing an action. Much like Minsc's shopping post a while back, you can now earn (extra) experience by posting a short story about your character performing whatever task he or she is in the process of completing.
This goes for any action, including Idle Training, but an experience bonus will only apply for the first story posted on an action (so while you could post a story a day about walking from New York to Neo Tokyo, you'd only gain extra experience once during the "Leaving New York" phase and once for the "Going to Neo Tokyo" phase). Note that each subsequent Idle Training session counts separately, so you could technically post about Idle Training every 2 (group) or 3 (solo) days if you want; writing stories about that would get old fast though....
[....Added....] This feature will also replace spars and battles, since no one's done one of those since DBG. The characters you wish to spar have to be in the same location, and you will obviously be responsible for writing it. However, the request by Thursday/post on Sunday restrictions will obviously no longer apply. [....End Added....]
This additional experience will probably be 2 points for decent posts, but the majority will only net 1 Exp. This is meant to reward players that feel the need to flesh out their character/companions more, not punish those that don't feel the need to write or think they aren't capable of doing so.
Violo's main has been added and we're off and running again. Everyone got 13 Instant Training that can be used for any action (you have to be in the proper location, though) and you're doing whatever it is you were doing before the freeze. If you were doing something that is meaningless in this new system, you're now Resting. If you were Working, you've been given what was due to you before the change and have restarted at day 1 again. In case you're wondering, I spent 3 EXP on each of my characters to finish traveling, and the rest on Idle Training for 5 EXP/LVLs.
Re-added Violo's companions, but we're still working out the details on his new main character. Note to storyline writers: since he switched Uub out for Ichigo, if Ichigo is used in a storyline you're writing, he can't use his artifacts until he's of a proper level (12 for the sword, 15 for the mask, 27 for both). I'm ignoring the normal rules which shouldn't allow him to even have either of them because the character has no where else to use its creation points....
Re-added Ryuu's, Steve's, and Brolli's toons. Just need Ichigo/Violo's now and we can start....
Added Baythan's characters (still need TX's pic) and finished updating the FAQ. Make sure to check up on the "Updated!" sections. I've also updated the Junk Yard (vehicle shop) for the new system (no more Skill levels in this system). I still have a lot of work to do to update the Evil-R-Wii store, as well as some of the random items on the Planet pages. The NPC page still hasn't been touched, but it's not all that important to the game....
Update: I'm going to push the start date back to Wednesday or whenever Ichigo, Piccolo, and Itachi have either rejoined or told me they aren't playing anymore, whichever's sooner.
All the Trainers are up, but I still need to update the NPC and FAQ pages. I'm planning on doing the first update on Sunday, so if you plan to continue playing I'd like to have your characters created before then....
Added a bunch of Power Trainers, but there's still a few Powers that I can't think of anyone that isn't a comic book character to teach. I've posted them on the forum, so if you want to check out the list and suggest a Trainer or two, I'd be grateful. Like with DBG, there's mostly one Trainer per Power, but there are a few that have multies (such as Flight).
The Rules and Character Creation stuff should be good to go, but I still need to update the FAQ and repopulate the Trainers (whom we will learn Powers from; learning a Skill can be done at any time now). Those'll be my goals for tomorrow.
Managed to rework the Members table to be suitable to the new system. Not sure how it'll look for a character with a lot of Powers, though.... I'll try to finish the Rules page and finalize the Character Creation stuff tomorrow.
I'm going out of town for the weekend, so there probably won't be any updates until I get back. I guess I'll go ahead and begin reworking the systems tonight, and finish up on Sunday/Monday. Pardon the dust....
Update: Finished the Skills/Powers pages (yay for FTP) and began work on the Rules page. It's nowhere near done yet, but you can get the general idea of how to make a character from the "Character Creation Rules" section. I posted a first attempt at our current characters on the forum yesterday; feel free to simply use that build as is, as a guide, or even just ignore it and make your own.
Sorry for the late update, I got distracted yesterday. I've posted the storyline and updated for Saturday and Sunday. I'll update for today when I update tomorrow (I update every 2 days, in case you didn't notice; easier to do it that way with so many idle trainers ). Khellendros (if you ever read this) and Itachi, there's a question on the forum I'd like you to answer when you get the time....
Updated and posted the storyline.
I decided to lower the Exp costs for learning Abilities and have adjusted everyone's Exp to compensate. In doing so, I happened to find that Itachi spent more CCP than he should have (75 instead of 70). Itachi, please e-mail me a new CCP distribution; you've only learned Chakra Manipulation 3 since we've started, if that helps.
Hit the forum for a Storyline sign-up. I should also point out that I added another use for Exp to the Rules yesterday which you may or may not find useful.
Added a FAQ page and added some Experience spending Rules to the bottom of the Rules page.
Sorry for the late update, I got distracted last night and it was 11 PM before I knew it. I've posted Baythan's storyline and updated accordingly.
Posted the storyline and updated.
Updated and added the henchpeople. Feel free to spend their CCP by email or forum post. Ichigo, there's a message on the forum for you about Kurono.
Updated for today and yesterday. I got distracted yesterday afternoon and didn't get around to updating, not that it's that big of a deal. I'm currently planning to write another Storyline this weekend, dealing with getting henchmen. If you want to join it, start thinking about who you want as your henchperson. I've started a forum post to reserve a character.
I've posted the Storyline. I'll update for it and the first day later. The only person that said they didn't want "Working" as their starting action was Minsc ("Butt-kicking for Goodness!", which I'm taking as Idle Training), so if that's not want you want to do, then e-mail me before say 7 PM CST. I guess I should also point out that a Storyline writer will get an extra Exp point or two for each week of a Storyline as an incentive. This was a request from Khellendros to help spark more writing activity from other people, as that was one of the major reasons the game's failed so many times. Other future incentives might include free training days, Cash, or items.
Added Piccolo. Feel free to spend your CCP by email or forum post, matters not to me. Make sure to look at the requirements for your Powers; you'll probably unlock nearly every one of them with just your starting CCP.
Updated Ichigo's and Misc's CCP allocations and added trainers for the new Abilities (for Ichigo, Khellendros, and Itachi). Currently I'm planning to do the "The Planeshift" storyline this weekend; it's obviously meant to be an introductory one. If you DON'T want to be in it, let me know ASAP; if you don't spend your CCP before then, well....your character's gonna suck.
Added Scarface, Khellendros, and Itachi. Feel free to spend your CCP by email or forum post, matters not to me. Make sure to look at the requirements for your Powers, as well as your racial traits. For everyone: if you think I need to add something to your Powers list, feel free to bring it up. I've attempted to find as much information about your characters that I could, but I probably missed something.
Added Ichigo and Minsc. Feel free to spend your CCP by email or forum post, matters not to me. Make sure to look at the requirements for your Powers, as well as your racial traits (Humans have it pretty good).
All but about 2 or 3 Skill & Knowledge descriptions are up and the Join form has been opened. Feel free to sign up whenever you settle on a character; I'll try to get you added to the Members page ASAP. In case you're wondering, I plan to use Abilities as the primary prereq's for Powers and will be adding more Abilities as necessary. For instance, I'll have to add a "Ki Manipulation" Ability if someone plays a DBZ character and one of the prereq's for a vast majority of his or her Powers would be a certain Rank of it. Similarly, I'd add "Chakra Manipulation", "Ninjutsu", "Genjutsu", and "Taijutsu" Abilities for a Naruto character. At this point I'm assuming the game with restart next weekend, with Sunday being the first update.
Talent descriptions are up; I'll try to get the Skill done by Wednesday and the Knowledges by Friday.
Began reworking the Abilities (formerly "Skills") page; still got a long way to go on the descriptions.
Altered a bunch of rules and terminology and tweeked the Members character table. Still need to find a way to handle henchmen with this new table format....
Archived the old site and considering reworking some of the more crappy rules should I find myself with more than a 1-day itch to reopen this site. The Star Wars site is obviously going nowhere fast and to be honest, I don't even know why I wanted to do that game anyway. Spent a bunch of money on the books for no real reason, I guess.
