Imagine a role-play system where you were told you could make anything you wanted for your character. Something more than just choosing what humanoid template you would like your character's race to be, more than your character's fighting prowess entirely determined by how many points you've dropped into 'Strength and Dexterity', and more than choosing everything your character can do from a bottomless list of pre-designed motions and mechanics. Imagine a system where anything actually means anything. Where who or what your character is, is just as free-form as what your character can do. Where your character's physical aspects, social prowess and capabilities are determined solely by your creativity as a player. Save your imagination. You're reading it. Well.. we hope anyway… The above is about 'Red Sky - In Mourning' a tabletop roleplaying system me and a couple of friends have made, and the reason I have created this thread is we want to test how true the above statement is. At it's simplest I am asking for you all to come up with characters using the information and parameters below. I want to see some really wild imaginative crazy stuff here, the system is made to accommodate any and all characters (in theory) and this thread is designed to be a test of the limits. Hopefully by seeing what people come up with, and more importantly what they cannot make we can understand what we can put in and maybe change to allow as wide a range of characters as possible. There will be no numbers or stats in this test, it's entirely based on concept and ideas. So the character sheet. Name:- Please name your character Concept:- What is the character you want to make? Maybe it's a lovecraftian horror, or a human who's ended up with the power to control sound. Perhaps a demonic mage who holds dominion over the shadows or a ghost of a human from ancient times. Please explain the character you set out to create, the more interesting or left-field the character the better a test of the system. But please make whatever you want. Race:- Please see below for the list of races and choose one. Class1:- Please see below for the list of classes, and choose your primary class. Class2:- Please see below for the list of classes, and choose a secondary class for your character. Combat rolls:- Please see below for information on how to formulate your combat rolls (don't worry no numbers or stats involved). You may have as many of these as you like. Traits:- Please give a list of all the traits you would want your character to have. As many as you like. If you have any ideas for new traits please put them here but change the colour or bold them or something to make them stand out. Abilities:- Please give a list of all the abilities you would want your character to have. As many as you like. If you have any ideas for new abilities please put them here but change the colour or bold them or something to make them stand out. Rhapsody Form:- Most characters in Red Sky have what we call a 'Rhapsody form'. There is more information n this below. In this field I would like to know the type of Rhapsody form you have and the concept for it. Rhapsody Traits:- Please give a list of all the traits you would want your Rhapsody form to have. As many as you like. If you have any ideas for new traits please put them here but change the colour or bold them or something to make them stand out. If you are a magus type you will not have any Rhapsody traits. Rhapsody Abilities:- Please give a list of all the abilities you would want your rhapsody form to have. As many as you like. If you have any ideas for new abilities please put them here but change the colour or bold them or something to make them stand out. What could you not do?:- This is perhaps the most important bit of this. If there were any ideas you had, or any parts of your character concept you felt you couldn't create adequately I'd like to know. It'll help us to figure out what's missing. If you feel you cannot complete every field that is fine. Everything and everything people do for this will be useful. Now before I give you the details and information needed to create your character I'd like to give some disclaimers and incentives. First of all, we reserve the right to use any ideas that are posted here. if you do not want us using any ideas then please do not post them (though it'd be great if you did) depending on the number of people who post (there may be a few too many) We would like to put you in the thanks section of the book. If you would want to be exempt from this please say. Also an incentive. If we really like any of the concepts posted here we would like to place them in the finished book as an example character, or maybe use the concept as the basis for some art or something. If this happens you will be told and fully credited. If you do not want us to use your character in this way then please say in your post.
