So hall effect doesn't mean folks are always taking half damage. It means half ranks to the save vs. Effect after they successfully dodge the cloud. Am I reading that right?

Backstory looks... good enough. Look for a game thread later tonight or tomorrow morning.

Half effect means that the effective rank of the effect is divided by 2 (Heck, let's round up).

I do not understand the second part. I am under the impression that if they dodge the cloud at the +7 DC, they're home free for that turn. If they dodge it at the half-effect DC, they need to make an appropriate defense check as if the effect had half the real rank. If they do not dodge it, they need to roll against full rank.

I downloaded Hero Lab. That helped immensely. I chose Shape Change and Mind Reading because it does what I actually wanted from my trickster: steal identities, not powers (necessarily). Please make any suggestions you think could help this character. Card shark, con man, identity thief, whose deal with the devil just made him supernaturally good at his job. Now he reads minds, puts people to sleep (potentially with memory loss?) and walks around looking like them for a while before skipping town.

I don't have time to look at this thoroughly now, and possibly not for the next couple days. First impression... it's a fixer upper, but it's better than what you had.


PalladiaMors, you still around?

Ok. That sounds like an improvement anyway, lol. I'm definitely a newbie. I've been consulting some boards to see how to make characters. I placed a lot of my eggs in the shape shift basket, but I found a Mystique build that might offer some ideas to make the character more nuanced. Does this look better if I played with it a bit?
http://atomicthinktank.com/viewtopic...828612#p828612

I'm more of a concept player, not a system master. If newbs aren't your thing, I'll definitely understand.

I definitely see this guy as less a combatant and more of a spy, but shape shift can be developed over time if he needs to become more combat focused. His backstory had him getting others to do his dirty work as a child, but he later figured out how to be even more subtle and avoid attention drawing violence altogether. I'm not married to that however.

I'm thinking I'll add some of her advantages and limitations, but not as much of the combat. I'll keep the mind reading but am seeking some ideas on how to make it applicable to identity theft.

You can tinker with the Mystique build sure. Normally, I'd have a lot more in-depth feedback for you, but I'm actually busy today and tomorrow, which is unusual.

A straight-up shapeshifter is fine. Having no defense above three is going to get you killed. Which will be fine once you're immortal, but for the first chapter... less so.

I have no problem with bringing a new player along.

Ok cool. I'll keep learning as we go. The time limit had me a bit flummoxed.

The time limit was mostly because I dislike people who voice interest, show up three weeks later, and wonder why they weren't let in.

I took the liberty of PMing Palladia Mors that you had moved things to the creation thread to compete, in case he/she had missed the update.

I'm currently reading through the threads . I will add to the backstory to create some tie ins to the setting when I have a good handle on it. Today is a free day for me.

I got a PM from Palladia Mors. They were away for the weekend, and were unaware they had been moved here.
