alright you two take the gloves off and chill out! this is a play by post role playing game. we are here to have fun. this is supposed to be a relief from our daily lives and a refreshing hour or two out of our day.
so just toss the issue behind you and lets get on with character creation so we can save/destroy universe. I would like to run this game for a long while so i need all my players to enjoy each others company.
about the bonuses and negatives i gave your class: in the character creation of the deluxe SW book there is a race generation section. to build the race draft all i did was follow the guidelines adding bonuses and penalties to balance your character. it seems like the problem came with limiting your agility to d6, which i did with the fluff in mind that you are covered in metallic scales which i would assume is not light.
your argument is that i am limiting your combat abilities, which is a fair concern. limiting your agi to a d6 doesn't limit your shooting or fighting to a d6. you can still raise it one die type with an advance. that being said there are other ways build out the race without using the d6 limit on agi.
i am not going to say just take 10 points of hinderances and bam you have a race. the rules for race creation are in the book because they work so we are going to follow them. now if you just want bonuses without any racial hinderances then we can do that also. you just wont get everything on that list. i have a few builds below
Natural Weapons (str+d6 dmg)
infravision or low light
str max d12+5
arcane background - magic
on a side note the str starting at a d6 was a mistype i copied and pasted from a document and forgot to take that out
and i do need to make sure we are all on the same page for game theme. this is a modern supernatural-pulp adventure. i think i just found four words to perfectly describe the game.
i draw influences from my favorite movies(indiana jones, aeon flux, matrix series, hellboys), everything Joss Whedon (firefly/serenity, doll house, dr horribles sing along blog), authors(h.p. lovecraft, terry goodkind, frank herbert), comics/manga(hellboy/bprd, chew, preist, deadman wonderland, atomic robo, killer of demons, transmetropolitan ) and too many tv shows and animes to name.
for this game i'm pulling directly from hellboy/bprd and h.p. lovecraft. it got a hint of atomic robo and indiana jones in there and a large helping of dresden files, supernatural(tv show), and lost girl(tv show)
when i read you character Tregod I instantly thought of Prince Nuada
. he is a paragon of an ancient race stuck in its old ways while everything around speeds into the 21st century forgetting tradition and honor. what were your influences for the character?
