    ZClip - - Welcome to SHARD

    Post

    Real Name: Zoltan (Zoli, Lee) L. Meszaros Jr. Born on the mean streets of Chicago, my mama taught me the basic facts of life...No wait, that was someone else. Born in Houston, raised in Austin since before I could walk. I was introduced, if you could call it that, to the fantasy genre inadvertently by my mother who being a fan of Peter, Paul, and Mary got me as story album about dragons (including the infamous Puff song) and story albums of fantasy & the macabre narrated by folks like Vincent Pr…

    Hmm,,, maybe Musket Totin' Kung Fu Animal-people from the Outer Dimension vs. Giant Bug -Demons of the Shattered Crystal Planet (now in ZULU-VISION!!!) Or something shorter AVB (Animals Vs Bugs) Nah, I still like Shard,,, especially since it rhymes with 'Tard' and we know how I actually sound smarter when I'm engaged in a conversation with 'those types'

    *from external E-mail* I'm onboard with 'Shard' for 3 reasons, personally; 1) The feedback you received from the vendors is concurrent with some simple marketing tactics I picked up in college (Keep It Simple Stupid(KISS) - Witness: Frank Hurbert's best seller - Arakis) 2) It is relevant to the game world, I swear, you can't spit on Dardunah without hitting a shard. 3) To my recollection of the story Scott told, when he bounced the name 'Shard' off the panel of vendors, they didn't say "that'll …

    Quote: “ ,..what jenu you are is NOT irrelevant to the story,..as I said before,..it is merely SECONDARY to your Caste/Profession,..and a CLOSE second at that,..which is why it is the Step immediately there-after... ” No one said it is irrelivant to the story. It merely doesn't matter for story purposes if a player gets to play the jenu they want to play. If a low power level (40 ability points) story set in Hathiyar, for example, has the player's charater filling the need for a Great Seer (27 p…

    Whew! Do I really want to join you guys in a head-buttin' fest with Scott? As a player, I still feel it is more important to have your Animal Template before you choose your Profession. I'll further this opinion with a bit of topic related humor; Quote: “Originally posted by Ghorüm Section One: 1. Choose animal. I know this is the first thing I want to do since this is the first game that allows me to play animal people. Actually, this isn't... ” [Zoli channeling Eric, as he channles Oboe] No, N…

    "Starting Items" for Characters

    Just so I don't forget before I crash for the night... Quote: “ But as far as trying to convince me of the value of giving players Starting Item lists for their characters ” I personally don't see the need for a 'starting items list'. What I am advocting is an expended 'Items List' of goods and services. weapons, armor & various accoutraments is already covered well enough in the existing Items List to outfit a character. If a character's profession requires general or specific paraphinallia (sp…

    Quote: “ ,..despite Zoli's earlier quote concerning his aversion to anything even remotely equating to "research", especially his disdain for me thinking it could possibly be "fun" to do concerning character development and creation,...I see him and everyone ELSE around me, who is computer savvy in the least, spending endless hours strolling around the Net looking up tidbits of information pertaining to things that interest them. Zoli smiled sheepishly when I brought this up, but admitted that, …

    Yes, by all means available, start the list. Personally, referring to these items as 'fictionally rich' seems less accurate than the idiom 'Dardunah Tech'. I wish I had thought of this during last night's conversation, and it may be a bit too redundant at this point, but here it is today; It's important to have a list of items less for a price list of 'common goods' and more for a cataloguing of ‘Dardunah Tech specific’ common goods. Not only for setting up some idea of ‘fair market value’ of it…

    Whew!!! so many words, one right after the other, GAAAAAH! Ok,, one chunk at a time; First off, I will resist the nigh unbearable urge to pop off with "'fun' and 'research' should never, ever, under any circumstances be found next to each other in any sentence, in any language, anywhere, period", and merely point out that for some people (myself included) research is a flaming hoop of Constantine wire one occasionally must jump through before they may get on to having fun. Now whether you are th…

    Ah Scott, it is my senceriest hopes that you will ever remain the proverbial "glass of milk" to Eric's twinkie >:)=)

    Ok so yeah, it's not like Bruce just decided one day that he was gonna mix all his martial diciplines into a new style and within 6 seconds he had it all worked out into Jeet Kun Do. Thanks for the long & short of it, I didn't think there was really no other reason for not mixing styles than just to limit potential for "unstoppable force". I like my idea for the concept of a "forbidden" style, Eric would you care to help me with the mechanics to develope it?

  • User Avatar

    Ya know, after further thought, Bruce used his experience of several styles to develope the style he called Jeet Kun Do (sp?) with some philosiphy about "being like water" ('If you put water in a glass, it becomes the glass. If you put water on the floor, it becomes a puddle',,, or something along those lines) Eric, you've come up with a lot of martial styles, why not come up with a style that allows the deciple to draw from the knowledge of other styles s(he) possesses and use them in conjuncti…

    The short version of above: If you are a happless 'twinkie', take the "Heaven's Sword" Martial Arts style, and you will get all the gold & magic items. And remember kiddies, the only people who like to game with twinkies, are other twinkies, and that's only so they can steal your shit. >:)

    Hmm, well, ya know, both Bruce Lee & Jet Li use(d) an amalgamation of different styles,,, Why did you decide to work it that way Scott?

In truth, NONE of these are truly LINKED to any Characteristics (meaning that they do not raise automatically if any Characteristics are raised. ” This is completely correct (like I need to confirm the word of Scott, or something) and overrides what I said, WHEN i said..

    Rearranging to help answer this thread, my man. Ok,, the "special case" aspect is in bold Quote: “Originally posted by mouseodoom Body Armor –(Vigor) The character has a tough hide, thick fur, a shell, etc., which naturally helps protect them from physical attacks. For every point of body armor, the character deducts one point from physical attacks on a per-attack basis, if the attack was successful. The cost for each point of Body Armor is equal to the character’s Vigor. Below are some recommen…
