I dunno about all y’all but one of the most fun parts of an adventure to me is making a character!

So, in order to get more people over here, we’re gonna make a character!

We’re not going to DO anything with the character, but maybe… just maybe…

I’m gonna need a bunch of votes to continue, though. Definitely more than like three…

one more, tee hee

Point Buy it is!

02.png

Boop!

Here’s how point buy works:

You don’t spend points to purchase arms or legs, because if you spend all your points on arms and legs and can’t afford a head you can’t just have no head. What you do is spend points on things to be able to specify them. Anything you don’t spend a point to specify will be decided randomly.

There are 16 points, but I want to be fair, so everyone can only decide where to spend one point until we’ve taken enough time that I feel like nobody will miss out and let y’all spend points again.

Here’s the list:

Points: ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Head
╠ Shape ◌
Hair
║├ Style ◌
║├ Length ◌
║└ Color ◌
Eyes
║├ Brows ◌
║├ Shape ◌
║└ Color ◌
Nose
║└ Shape ◌
Mouth
   └ Shape ◌
Body
╠ Weight ◌
╠ Height ◌
╠ Physique ◌
╠ Coloring ◌
Arms
║├ Shape ◌
║└ Markings ◌
Torso
║├ Shape ◌
║└ Markings ◌
Legs
   ├ Shape ◌
   └ Markings ◌
Outfit
╠ Headwear ◌
Upper Body
║├ Shirt ◌
║└ Jacket ◌
Lower Body
║├ Pants ◌
║└ Shoes ◌
╠ Full Body ◌
Accessories
   ├ Accessory 1 ◌
   └ Accessory 2 ◌

So, for instance, someone could say:
Put a point in Accessory 1, for a red scarf
or:
I’m putting my point in Eyes Color Blue

Looks good, right? If you feel like changing the appearance any more, now is the last chance, but also maybe you want to just accept as is?

I’ll give each person the opportunity to move one point from something to another, (except the pants or shoes, which are locked) or vote keep.

what exactly does moving mean tho
like do we pick a new thing with someones point

yea thats the idea

but if you dont wanna then you dont have to

i feel like maybe nobody wants to lolz

creator

Okay, looks like nobody wants to move any points around

05.png

So let’s say that’s okay, and move on to the next section.

06.png

This section is Bonus(es)!

07.png

Perks provide the character with intangible bonuses that are not necessarily achievable from your abilities alone. Because a perk is a significant bonus, it must be offset with a flaw, which provides a significant weakness to balance it out. Flaws give your character a weakness that isn’t necessarily possible to overcome with stats alone. There are many more flaws and perks than are visible right here, if you can think of one it’s probably there.

You don’t have to choose flaws or perks, but they provide more options to flesh out the character. Additionally, you can choose any number of flaws you want, but only up to as many perks as you have flaws.

Alright, we don’t really have a whole lot of agreement here, but I there’s a couple trends. Hot-headed, and peacemaker/softie. So we’ll just go with this:

Looks good!

Now to continue on…

Time for the most fun part, stats!

10.png

Stat points in LGOAA have two components: a main stat and a specialization. The main stat must be one of Body, Mind and Spirit, but the specialization can be anything. A stat point can be something like Mind: Smart, or Spirit: General or Body: Dragonlike.

Any stat point will make a person better at all things they want to attempt, and a stat point in a main category will provide a bonus to all things that require that category. A specialization will provide a bonus to just the chosen thing. The more specific a specialization choice is, the more of a bonus a single stat point will give to it.

Some specializations, with enough stat points in them, can change the appearance of a person. For instance, a few points in dragonlike could cause a person to grow horns, little wings and a tail. Or enough points in strength would cause a person to beef up, as you’d expect.

Feel free to spend all 10 stat points, and I’ll stitch together something from everyone’s lists.

I kind of don’t feel right changing the character any more since emily had some votes on her. I’m just gonna end this topic and make a new one in a bit…
