PostSubject: Profile Change Request   Mon Feb 09, 2015 8:09 pm

Character Name: Maximillion X
Link to Profile: http://nightshaderpg.darkbb.com/t3269-maximillion-x

Requested Change
I would like to have the following Ability/Power added to Maximillion's Profile:





Transcendent Scholar
Maximillion has the ability to, at the cost of a Slaughter Point, learn a Technique or Ability possessed by someone desiring to impart said technique/ability to him. An example might be if a mage comes through town willing to teach some of his spells, in exchange for forking over some cash to be taught them, Maximillion could take him up on it....at the cost of 1 Slaughter Point per Spell learned). [Note: The learning of said Technique/Ability would have to be written out in an RP thread with both Maximillion and the would-be 'teacher' both RPing out the training process.]






Code:

For this I'm saying no. The easiness for this to be exploited is way too high and would allow you to basically get permanent higher category abilities with very little cost to attain them thus making the game quite unbalanced. I would need a little bit more of a balance on this. Maybe 3 SP per ability at best and even still, I'm hesitant. For now, you have...

All I want, more or less, is for other players to be able to teach me techniques, if they so wish, so my character can become a greater ally for them.

I figured you guys (the Team) would prefer if I did this through Slaughter Points, so I was kind of just spitballin' until I got an idea of how you guys prefer I go about it.

Obviously, gaining a spell doesn't make Maximillion somehow more powerful; it just adds another technique to his arsenal.

He's still bound by the proverbial Power Level of his Category. Obviously, if he's Cat-D and fighting a Cat-B (example), even having 10 different learned Spells isn't going to close that gap, and his powers will pale in comparison to the abilities of the Cat-B.

Does it need to be even more of a detriment? He'd already be foregoing a boost in might and power, for just another method of fighting.

You state this as him being able to learn techniques. Techniques can include teleportation and heightened special human abilities designated for specific use against higher level opponents. The problem i have with it is also that there is no specification on what does and does not classify so techniques could mean anything. Based on face value, your character could gain the ability of flight, a category a ability, without having to unlock it through normal avenues. Keep in mind that this is just how I read it. Other staff members may view it differently but I just see way too much gray area in this. If you wanna add more clarification, you can but as it stands, I'm not diggin' it. Sorry bud.

How about with the following stipulations:

=°~°=°~°=°~°=°~°=°~°=°~°=

• Can't be taught abilities that are outlined as only unlocked at a higher Race category. (Like Mist, shape shift, flight, Familiars, etc).

• Can't be taught Racial Passives (Werewolf olfactory senses, etc), or Passive abilities (like if we ever have a human who can, due to her birthright, transform into a Water Elemental, etc).

• These stipulations don't prevent the natural acquisition of Abilities or Powers naturally acquired by Vampires as they move up the Categories (ie: abilities, powers, conjurations, etc. Unlocked at CatC. CatB, CatA...) won't be bound by the same limitations as Transcendent Scholar

=°~°=°~°=°~°=°~°=°~°=°~°=

Since I don't intent to try and undermine the rules, I have no problem reiterating said rules in this Ability description.

Hmm I'd maybe go with some thing slightly different.

Maybe in some instances after a short time after a kill he can absorb a victims ability but only for a short duration like let's say 5min.

Hell that would be a sweet ability but hmm... Totally would be nerfed to all living hell.

I'm gong to hold my vote for a bit on this, though... If you want my honest opinion, anything that, if approved with modifications, this ability will do nothing that you can't already do in rp. At least, again, in my opinion.

@Anderson: Can't Vampires already absorb the enemies whose blood they drink, their souls included? Alucard used Schrödinger, Seras used Pip, etc? If so, Maximillion can't do that, as its a preexisting racial ability.

@Lenka: I'm looking for something along the lines of just being able to be taught things that are learnable, permanently. You know, in real life, WE could learn spells, if someone taught them to us. But, since abilities and whatnot go through an approval process, I thought to formalize this as one of Maximillion's abilities.

Alright. This has been sitting here for a week. Staff, you need to vote. Period. Max. What you're asking for isn't something that is feasible for your character and is no longer going to be considered. In the mean time, read the rules and do so thoroughly. This is now completely disapproved. Better luck next time!
