In this next post.. I will get into Skill sets, and What skills are based off which stats.
Such as the Skill Climbing, is a DEX based skill. And must have a min. Score to be able to unlock the skill, or gain higher skill value depending on
your stat number.
Some Skills are set standard skills that anyone can learn. Most skills are based under INT. But also many skills use up to 3-4 different Stat
numbers that will detail the skill set you have.
Skills will be ranked in measures of 6 being the max. And 1 being the lowest. But even with 1 point in a skill still allows the use of that skill.
The higher the INT, and the higher the street smarts are dicates how many skills you will gain per level, and starting.
1- Basic knowledge of skill.. 1=Novice standing in said skill
2-Basic knowledge of skill, and has some exp when working with said skill 2=Green horn
3-Advanced knowldge of skill, has much exp with said skill. 3=Manager/Director/
4-Advanced knowledge of skill, not only has Exp with Said skill, but can teach this skill to other players provided INT is high enough to obtain. 35%
chance of teaching skill 4=Trades man/woman
5-Artiasn knowledge of skill. Has been a lifelong skill, many years of learning, and is able to teach other players, even if their INT is not up to
par. 8% chance of teaching skill, -10 chance for each point of INT lacking. 6= Master of skill.
6-Skill mastery of the knowledge of said skill. Unmatched by any in this skills use. Has a 99% chance of sucess rate. Can do most skills in half
the time as Advanced skills. Can teach others said skill 100%. Can teach others with lesser INT -10% for each INT point lacked. 5=Grand Master
For example. A person with a 6/6 cooking skill, is a Grand Master Chef. All food made will increase Stam, HP, and will allow a full belly for up to
3 days with one well cooked meal. Given the right tools, and right setting GrandMasters own that skill.. And with time taken, can each other players
how to cook.. Depending on their INT.
Cooking is a basic skill, that anyone can learn, as it only has an INT requirement of 4, for 1/6
For each upgrade the INT requirement moves up to a +1. So to be able to become a Grandmaster Chef. the min. INT for this would 10 Intelligence.
Ect ect.. other basic skills will work under this same system.
So there are-- Basic Skills/ Trade skills/ Professional Trade skills/ Gathering, Farming skills/ Combat skills
Science and Tech. Skills/ knowledge skills/ movement skills/ Social skills/ Looking for more input about more skills and types of skills.. In a
later post I will lay out all the skills that fall under each tree.
Int Skill chart--
3- You start with no skills. You may be able to learn some skills if you are able to pick them up. However most skills are far beyond your grasp.
However even the dumbest, can earn 1 skill every 5 levels, but must be taught. Can never just gain a skill.
4- Start with 1 skill. And only 1 basic Trade skill. You also may be able to learn some skills if you can find someone who is willing to teach you,
and is willing to take the time needed. Can learn 1 Basic skill every 3 levels.
5-8-Start with 2 skills 1 basic and one trade or other, if INT allows it. Can learn 1 basic skill every 2 levels 1 Trade skill every 5 levels.
9-12- Start with 2 basic skills 1 trade. Can learn 1 basic skill every 2 levels 1 trade skill every 3 levels
13-15- Start with 3 basic skills 2 Trade. Can learn 1 basic skill each level. 1 Trade skill every 2 levels
16-17 Start with 4 Basic skills 2 Trade. Can learn 2 Basic skill each level 1 Trade skill each level
18- Start with 5 basic skills 4 Trade skills, Can learn 3 Basic skill each level , 2 Trade skill each level
Also. I am looking for up to 5-15 people who would be interested in Beta testing this with me, as players.
I also am looking for 2-4 Story tellers. The types of people who would rather be a story teller and help with campaign ideas, and mapping.
As it stands, There is just me 1 story teller, And I have 2 beta players from social media who have shown interest.
So there are many slots left open.
If you are one of the few to offer me a hand in this.. Your name will be on the credits, and will recive specail items and gear. + to stats, and a
wide range of perks!
Not looking to just kill everyone off.. I would like to make a fair system, that is both fun to play.. And is enjoyable RPG type game that brings out
the "geek" in all of us.
Since I have not been able to play any D&D here the last couple months, I am really wanting to get something going, and I thought ATS/BTS would be a
good place to start to look for other RPG fans like me!
I have a couple of my girlfriends who like to play D&D too.. They bring their boyfriends, as I know they have always loved the game.. So its not just
a "guy" thing.
Nor is this the typical stuff you think of, a bunch of nerds rolling dice, and drinking soda pop.
No the games I remember, where Dice, beer, some music.. A couple outside breaks.. *wink* puff puff. Come back inside, sit around the table, drink a
few more beers, and just have a good time with a group of friends.
Most the time to be honest, it kept us out of trouble.. LOL.. is why I always have to laugh when people see RPG games as the work of the devil..
So I hope to hear from some of you guys! And always looking for further input into all this.
Thanks Guys and Gals.
