Here, you will learn all you need to know to participate in the Isekai Hell rp world and tell your very own Isekai story. If you have any questions or believe rules are missing, please contact Novama Novama . As time passes, we may revisit the rules to make additional rules, clarifications, or otherwise change things. You will be informed when that happens. Do not feel compelled to memorize all the information at once. It will remain here for you to browse at your leisure.

Rules
They are fairly common and already known to most RPers. Here is a list for new and old RPers alike as some will be specific to Isekai Hell.

Conduct
  1. Please message Novama or Mods with any questions or problems you have with the RP or its members.
  2. Let people know if you can't post for a while or if you are dropping the RP.
  3. Please mention or contact those you posted at so they know you are waiting on their reply.
  4. The site (rpnation) doesn't allow X-rated content so keep your smut out of Isekai Hell RPs. Romance is allowed however.

Role Play
  1. Have an approved character sheet in the character thread for Isekai Hell before participating in any Isekai Hell RPs.
  2. You may only have one character of yours (minions and companions aside) in any one RP.
  3. Post in 3rd person
  4. Post at least a few sentences. (what is the character doing, what are they saying, has the scene changed any)
  5. Any roleplay that is not finished and checked in for grading is not considered world canon/lore.
  6. The same character cannot participate in more than one RP at a time (exception to the rule: World RPs allow simultaneous participation)
  7. NPC Companions are to be controlled by whoever the mod or narrator is for any given Isekai Hell RP.
  8. You may post as frequently as you wish as long as they are not back to back. (In situations where timing matters like combat, this rule may be different)
  9. Any pvp to the death is generally discouraged, but pvp is allowed so long as there is a 3rd party arbiter like a mod to oversee things (unless the outcome is already agreed upon between combatants).
  10. Changes to character should be done between RPs and not during. However, changes may be permitted if the mod or narrator is contacted in advance of the change for permission.
  11. If a player is absent without word or post for a week, they will be assumed missing from the thread until they return. In 1v1 RPs, this means the RP is done and should be cashed in for partial rewards. For group RPs of 3 or more, it will be up to the remaining group to continue or not and how they wish to do so.
  12. All characters must have a weak point/core. A piece of the character that represents who and what they are and if damaged or destroyed , would destroy them.

World RPs
  1. The mods are the only ones that move time in RP. (specific to World RPs. outside of world RPs, assume any passage of time is prior to current events for the world)
  2. Do not auto-hit or auto-succeed at combat or tasks in RP. Combat and skill based outcomes are decided by Mod
  3. Creating NPCs in World RPs is prohibited.
  4. Posts longer than a couple paragraphs must have a summary section that captures the main points of the post in a concise way.

Character Skeleton
First thing's first: Let's create your body. You will copy the code here as it is and post it (filled in) in the character thread for approval. You will want the character approved before you start posting with it. Additional rules and lists for filling out the skeleton will be found further down. Feel free to 'pretty up' the skeleton if you wish, but ensure all information is still present and clearly readable. Characters are assumed to be generally human level in capability with one or two distinguishing features about their character at start. If you feel that is too restrictive, understand that through roleplay and effort, most characters can reach world renown levels of ability and influence. We strongly believe in having characters going through a journey that develops themselves as well as their power and that they don't just have everything given to them right from the start.

Having Multiple Characters

Aside from certain skill selections, it is possible to create and play multiple characters. In order to get an additional character approved, you must first show that you can effectively keep up with your current characters. This means prior characters are all actively in RPs and not being waited on by the groups of those RPs. If characters become boring, unplayable, or the RPer can't keep up, it may be best to scoop the character or retire it altogether. It will be restated that multiple characters belonging to the same RPer may not participate in the same RP at the same time.

Grades of Power
Already mentioned and listed in the character skeleton, Stats are perhaps the foundation of the Isekai Hell System. It is through Stats that the characters can unlock skills, which have their own significance to the system, but more importantly, they help give us a sense of what to expect from the characters in various areas and situations of roleplay. The following explains what the individual stats mean and also how they can be improved over the course of your character's adventures.

1711196301765.png

Strength: general muscle power. Influences effectiveness of melee and thrown weapon abilities and attacks.

Precision: general fine movement control of one's body like balance and moving quietly. Influences effectiveness of ranged weapons like bows and quasi firearms.

Intelligence: a catch all for knowledge, memory and magical prowess. May also reflect mental fortitude in the face of persuasive forces.

Vitality: your body's life force as well as the ability to withstand hardship of varying kinds. Necessary for heavier armor.

Speed: general quickness and agility. Dodging and covering ground. Necessary for light armors and magical protections.

Stat Upgrade

To upgrade a stat, the character will need to invest 7 points into the stat to move it up 1 Grade.
  • Ex: Bob has F grade strength.
    He would like it to become E grade strength.
    Bob takes 7 of his available points and lists them as spent on his character sheet.
    He then edits strength to be an E grade stat.

Each letter upgrade for stats with the exception of S Grade requires 7 points.
S grade stats require characters to undergo a special RP called a tribulation first. Tribulations are per Stat and only accessible after a character has raised a stat to A grade. Tribulations are difficult challenge based RPs that abide by world RP rules described below. Only attempt them after adequate preparation. Characters that clear them will be given bonus rewards, titles fitting for their victory, and the right to upgrade to S. Characters that fail are generally maimed or killed. When a stat is raised to S, related skills may then be raised to S as well.

As mentioned previously, each Grade in a stat requires 7 additional points than the last with the exception of S Grade which has additional requirements. This means the following table would apply if one were to take a stat from F to something higher than E in one go:
  • H grants 14 points
  • G grants 7 points
  • F costs 0 points
  • E costs 7 points
  • D costs 14 points
  • C costs 21 points
  • B costs 28 points
  • A costs 35 points
Points may only be invested in increments of 7. You can hold onto your extra points and save them.

Character Grade

This stat is not listed but it is one you may need to calculate from time to time. It is the average of the other 5 stats and increases with every 5 stat upgrades. It is a loose measurement of the character's "muchness" like Charisma. Some skills and titles rely on this stat. It is not uncommon for characters to be better in some areas than others.

Formula to Calculate
  • Strength S - 6 upgrades
    Precision A - 5 upgrades
    Intelligence B - 4 upgrades
    Vitality C - 3 upgrades
    Speed D - 2 upgrades
    20 upgrades ⁒ 5 stats = +4 character grade = F -> (+4) -> B Character Grade

Grades of Power

dae2dc205e59d761e3b6ded256cb09d66af07e75_hq.gif
What is the power scale, you ask? I'll explain that here. All creatures and items of significance have a Grade associated with them or an aspect of them. The higher the Grade, the more one can expect from the Graded thing's performance. The Grades are detailed below.

H (-2) - this grade is reserved for the smallest of creatures. A character's capabilities with this stat are not even worth mentioning other than to say they have enough to survive. Typically a creature with this stat is on their deathbed, tiny in size, or a form of limited life that does not need a full range of functionality in order to persist.

G (-1) - this grade is generally reserved for children, small characters, and the injured. Your ability with this stat has not yet reached maturity or you may be physically limited to a certain capacity.

F (+1) - this grade is at the bottom of the stack. generally equated to base levels of human adult functionality. They have no extra training or experiences to make elements of the character with this grade anything special. As it pertains to skills, F is still lowest on the ladder, but it does imply your character has a grasp of some basic high level concepts pertaining to the subject matter. Example: random trivia scraped together from documentaries on tv, wikipedia articles, and common sense like don't point the pokey sword at your face.

E (+2) - this grade represents someone or something in training. It has acquired some of the knowledge or guidance necessary to start growing in this path of knowledge or ability. An E rank character/creature may be represented by trainee soldiers, apprentices, acolytes, bandits.

D (+3) - this grade represents someone fully trained. Their teachers, masters, and learning materials have been mostly exhausted of their usefulness. The student is still lacking in experience however and generally begins traveling or performing more tasks independently. Common D rank entities may be Barons, new merchants such as peddlers, soldiers, town guard, mages graduated from academy but yet to find employment.

C (+4) - this grade represents a veteran in their area of expertise, profession, or abilities. They have experienced and overcame hardship. They have taught themselves things and started creating their own style of doing things. Any humanoid that could be called a veteran likely has a skill/ability/or profession at this grade. Monsters of C grade tend to be leaders of their packs/herds/groups. Ex: boss goblin of group of goblins. Captain of the guards. Squad leaders. Mage leading a research party.

B (+5) - this grade represents the elites in their area of expertise. They were the veterans that refused to retire. They were the greats that refused to settle on 'good enough'. They were the ones that continued to hone their skills while others plateaued and gave up. There are mere 100s of B grade creatures and humanoids in the world compared to the millions that have yet to know or do anything. These individuals are like special forces.

A (+6) - this grade is the peak of humanity. They are similar to Olympic athletes able to compete at a global level with only a handful of peers in the world. Your prowess and knowledge are known on a global scale. you are the best in your areas of excellence and study. Your peers are all known to you and could likely be counted on your fingers.

S (+7) - the last grade and one without a limit. They have reached the realm of the supernatural. Some or all of one's humanity has been lost. Many sacrifices, time and effort and perhaps a bit of luck was put in to get this far. They can do and achieve things beyond the scope possible for humans. Think something along the lines of heroes like Hercules and Sampson among other demigod type entities.

Items and Equipment
Items and equipment are important to most creatures in the world. They allow people to accomplish various tasks and overcome many hardships that would be difficult or impossible with their bare hands. Mechanically, Items and Equipment have an additional purpose: the character's equipment, specifically, enables the character to perform at their best. A character's strength cannot be properly utilized without an equivalent weapon or item to channel it. Same could be said about Tools associated with skills. A carpenter without a saw will likely have a hard time completing their task.

tumblr_oo5ycpI15U1qzxv73o1_540.gifv


Weapon Grades


Like stats, a character's equipment has grades. The grades are the same as stats. The points required to upgrade or purchase higher grade weapons are also the same as the stats table. Additionally, it is possible to have an A-grade iron sword and a D-grade steel sword. With a couple exceptions, the grade of the weapon or armor is mainly based on the durability of the weapon. A well-crafted iron blade may outperform a shoddy and worn steel blade.

Exceptions to the above would be related to Equipment made of Orichalcum or Mythril. S-grade gear is only possible when made with one of these 2 materials. S-grade equipment is generally presumed to be the stuff of legend. A legendary material produced by a legendary craftsman to be used for a legendary purpose.

Orichalcum - a material that can only be mined from the earth with exceptionally skilled miners and/or magic users. Supposedly the material would be impossible to exist without mana present. It can be forged into the hardest material currently known to the world and is virtually impossible to break. Typically a greenish color, armaments made from it that aren't painted come out shining like emeralds. The hardness of the material coupled with its relationship with mana allows weapons made of Orichalcum to cut through practically any other material.

Mythril - the other material considered to be capable of reaching S-grade quality. It is said to be a metal infused with magic and able to take on and exude various magical properties. Magical weapons like the blazing flametongue, a sword wreathed in fire and able to send out sprays of flame with each swing, would be an example of weapons made with mythril.

Item Restrictions and Requirements


Save for something magical, items can generally be picked up by anyone. Steve with D strength can carry an A-grade sword if he wants (during a roleplay). The problem comes when a character tries to use an item they do not have the underlying stats to properly use.
  • Example: If Steve tries to use that A-grade sword, he may find he does not have the raw ability or skill to properly wield the blade. What this means mechanically is that when Steve swings his blade, he will, at best, get an E-grade quality cut/attack/ability.
It should also be noted that wearing or using items of a lesser grade than what you are capable of will prevent the character from performing at their best and at worst could destroy/damage the items.
  • Example: Steve has grade C strength. He has decided to keep using his E-grade sword for the next RP mission. During the mission, he needed to leverage all his strength and ability to handle the scenario as it was presented. After the attack, the narrator of the RP decided Steve would have likely damaged or broken his sword due to it not being sturdy enough to tolerate the abuse Steve put it through. Steve will now need to find an artisan or some other means of repairing his weapon in roleplay or wait until the end of the RP to get it fixed.

Buying Items

As previously mentioned, items share grades and costs similar to stats. Characters may not buy equipment of grades they do not have the stats to handle. When buying armor, be sure to state Light OR Heavy for the type of armor it is. That will dictate the stat needed and stat used for determining character Health/HP. Reference the following list for pricing:

Weapon/Armor/Magic Catalyst (prices are doubled if made with Mythril or Orichalcum)
  • F - 7 points to purchase - E-grade Associated Stat
  • E - 14 points to purchase - 7 points to upgrade F item - D-grade Associated Stat
  • D - 21 points to purchase - 7 points to upgrade E item - C-grade Associated Stat
  • C - 28 points to purchase - 7 points to upgrade D item - B-grade Associated Stat
  • B - 35 points to purchase - 7 points to upgrade C item - A-grade Associated Stat
  • A - 42 points to purchase - 7 points to upgrade B item - S-grade Associated Stat
  • S - ??? points to purchase - ??? points to upgrade A item - S-grade Associated Stat

Natural Weapons (Claws, teeth, spikes, fists, feet, etc...natural body parts used offensively)
Purchase enables full use of the creature's body to attack as appropriate. Orichalcum grade is possible but it does not make the character unkillable or uninjurable.
  • F - 14 points to purchase - E-grade Strength
  • E - 28 points to purchase - 14 points to upgrade F item - D-grade Strength
  • D - 42 points to purchase - 14 points to upgrade E item - C-grade Strength
  • C - 56 points to purchase - 14 points to upgrade D item - B-grade Strength
  • B - 70 points to purchase - 14 points to upgrade C item - A-grade Strength
  • A - 84 points to purchase - 14 points to upgrade B item - S-grade Strength
  • S - ??? points to purchase - ??? points to upgrade A item - S-grade Strength

Common Weapon Types
  • Swords
  • Bows
  • Crossbows
  • Polearms
  • Staves
  • Guns
  • Cannons
  • Clubs
  • Short blades (daggers)
  • Needles
  • Curved blades (sickles)
  • Sling
  • Hammers
  • Natural weapons
  • Picks
  • Forks
  • Other

Tools are generally associated with skills that make a character proficient in their use and acquired when a character acquires the skill to use them. While such items might be gathered without the skill and without point use, they would be of little to no use to an unskilled character. Tools might be considered to have grades like combat related items, but generally the upgrades and purchases of higher quality tools comes with the price of acquiring higher grades in a craftsman's skills.

General use items like food, hygiene, money for inn stay, etc... are not counted by the system. It is assumed that you will roleplay your character in a way sensible to their titles. The street urchin isn't going to stay at a grand resort inn. A noble will not be found in a squalor generally.

Magic Items


Magic items are items that bestow the user with additional power in some way. Generally they mechanically grant the wielder of the item extra skills or abilities to make use of. Such items can be created but there is a limit to the number of such items a character can carry at one time. Mundane Catalysts do not count as magic items. The following list shows the limit per character grade:
  • F - unable to use magical items/equipment
  • E - 1 item
  • D - 2 items
  • C - 3 items
  • B - 4 items
  • A - 5 items
  • S - ???

Armor


Armor items could be just about anything used to defend a person. Typically worn, armor comes in 2 varieties: Heavy and Light. In IH, shields do not count as armor but as a strength based weapon that can be used for offense or defense.
  • Heavy armor uses Vitality stat as a requirement for purchase and upgrades. Heavy is primarily used for tanking attacks. It is typically larger, heavier, more encompassing, and/or made for intentionally taking hits.

  • Light armor uses Speed stat as a requirement for purchase and upgrades. Light is primarily used for evading attacks by offering just enough protection to turn potential injuries into glancing blows. It is typically less covering, lighter, and/or made for taking hits as a last case scenario.

il_340x270.2939219527_2rp9.jpg
Crafting/Trading


Some characters may acquire the skills and the means to craft items. What can they make and what does it cost? While the crafting skills will be explained more in the skill list, for the purposes of crafting, it should be understood that a F-grade crafting skill allows for the crafting of F-grade items that rely on that craft for free. A crafter may not craft an item for themselves or others that the intended wielder does not have the stats to use. It is possible for a crafting character to sell his services to other players' characters. All transactions must be public access (IH Marketplace) and linked to by both characters' change logs.
  • Example: F-grade Blacksmith can craft F-grade metal based weapons for free. Mithril and Orichalcum items of F-grade will cost the blacksmith 7 points to craft after a 7 point deduction from their artisan skill.


1298256c721451ed11b54a790c8a3d12.jpg
Assets


Items acquired through roleplay are generally allowed through equipped titles. For example, a character that is a merchant may wish to acquire some sort of beast of burden. They would equip their merchant title and run an RP where they do something to acquire a pack mule for transporting their peddler goods. Beginning characters generally have little to no right or reason for acquiring assets. Grow your character, acquire skills and abilities. Earn your titles. Then roleplay acquiring the stuff you want. There are skills that can bypass some of these requirements.

Harvesting
Another way to gain a certain type of asset is through harvesting in roleplay. During a roleplay, characters with the appropriate skills may harvest/gather resources like plants and pelts among other items. During grading, such items become an asset assuming the characters properly earned them and had the standing and skills to do so. These special assets may then be traded in for other free items or artisan reductions on more advanced items/assets.
  • Example 1: Bob has the logging skill. He runs an RP where his character goes into the forest and cuts down some trees to harvest wood for a house he wishes to make. The RP is graded and Bob is granted lumber as a resource. Bob then exchanges the E-grade quality lumber asset for a nice E-grade country home asset in the woods.

  • Example 2: Tim has the survival skill. He runs an RP where his character hunts wolves. He has his character skin some wolves and during RP grading, Tim's character is granted D-grade wolf pelt assets. He then exchanges the asset for cool and custom wolf themed leather armor D-grade.

Material Grades


Sometimes a narrator or you will likely want to know loosely how various materials rank in the world. It should be noted, weapons made of a certain material are not of a higher or lesser grade due to the material it is made of. But, if you see a stone wall or a wooden hut, you can loosely come to a consensus with your narrator by referring to the following table. The list is not a complete one for every material in the world, but does list the most common types of materials for most items. Not listed items can be approximately placed by referencing the ones already given a grade:
  • F - Wood - Effectiveness Rating: 3
  • E - Stone - Effectiveness Rating: 6
  • D - Bronze- Effectiveness Rating: 9
  • C - Iron- Effectiveness Rating: 12
  • B - Steel- Effectiveness Rating: 15
  • A - Scarletite- Effectiveness Rating: 18
  • S - Mithril, Orichalcum- Effectiveness Rating: 21

Enchanting


This is the way to imbue items with skills and abilities.

  1. Acquire a mithril item
  2. Determine how many enchantment cores an item has:
  • F - 1 F-grade core
  • E - 2 E-grade cores
  • D - 3 D-grade cores
  • C - 4 C-grade cores
  • B - 5 B-grade cores
  1. Pay the purchase and upgrade price of skills as listed in the skills section to put them in slots. Skills' grades may not exceed the grade of enchantment core.
  2. In the event you have cores with room left over because the skills put into them are not greater in grade than the core, you may pay to fill the remaining space with lower grade skills.

Limitations
1. Enchanted items count as magic items and count against magic item limitation per character.
2. A single skill may not be split between 2 or more enchantment cores.
3. An item is fully enchanted when all cores are filled up to their grade in one or more enchantments. It may not be enchanted anymore until the item is upgraded.
4. Enchanted items may not have their enchantments removed, but the skills may be upgraded if the core housing them has the room for the upgrade.
5. Enchanted items are treated as separate entities. This means the skills put on them only apply to the item and not the user of the item. Ex: regen on an item means the item will repair itself if damaged, not that it will heal the wielder of the item.
6. Enchanted gear loses skills and skill grades whenever an enchanted item is damaged in combat. Each grade lost on an enchanted item removes an entire enchantment core and reduces all remaining cores by a grade which can weaken or remove remaining skills.

Shard Shocking

Those with the enchanter skill may create abilities to disrupt enchantment core shards on enchanted mithril items. The effect lasts until user's next post. The action would function as an attack against one mithril equipment. The ability is not effective against mithril enchantments the user has made themselves.

Shard Shattering

Enchanters may perform the service of removing enchantment shards from items they have not enchanted. Enchanter must be a pc and not a companion,minion, or npc character. For marketplace transactions, enchanter must charge a minimum of 1pt per grade of Shard or shards being removed. Users may not use their own characters to remove their own enchantments. Shard shattering takes a considerable amount of time and delicate work. It is not possible during combat and might not be suitable for every rp even when not in combat.


Potion.png


Consumables

Sometimes you need a pinch heal or a handy buff in a tight spot. Consumables enable characters to have temporary benefits without permanently investing in skills and equipment they don't want for their character. They are single use items that disappear from character inventory upon use. Common examples of consumables: Potions, Scrolls, Specific magic items.

Price of Consumable:
1. 7pts per grade of consumable
2. Same purchase price for each skill added to the consumable and then again for each upgrade of a skill.

Limitations
1. Consumable may grant a single ability or a single skill.
2. Skills in consumable may not exceed grade of consumable.
3. Skills that require other skills may not be put into consumable without first adding the requisite skill.
4. Points spent in acquiring consumable are returned upon the effects of the consumable ending.
5. Points spent on consumables are considered [held] and may not be spent on other expenditures while in this state.
6. Character grade must be 1 higher than the grade of consumable to use.
  • Example:
    Potion of fire breathing D
    Formula:
    Magic D, Magic Range E, Magic aoe E, Magic duration E, Fire affinity F

Races
A common element of any fantasy world based Isekai is the inclusion of fantasy races. While the Lore thread that talks about the world and the starting kingdom will delve more into the races present in the world, I would like to make a post to cover how Races are handled in the system. Isekai's have allowed for a wide variety of races, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Our system does not set out to create a massive race list and attempt to balance the selection of one race over another with each other. Instead, we have chosen to allow people to make their own races and grow and develop them over time into more powerful races or more unique variants.

Race Trees
First choice you will make is deciding which racial tree your character is in. There are 4 racial trees:

Human Tree - all creatures in this tree are human or some sub-human. Ex: High Human, Aerial, Atlantian, some giants
  • Members of the human tree are the most numerous in the world. A very versatile and diverse set of races in the world.
  • There is a love/hate relationship between Beast Tree and Human Tree that keeps them inseparable but barely able to stand each other.
  • Thinks favorable of the Fae and their deep knowledge and powerful magic, which they long for
  • Constructs are there creation and given little thought aside from the purpose they were built for. Rarely considered sentient or worthy of respect given to sentient creatures.
  • Monsters are a blight upon the world that need to be wiped out. There are no exceptions.
Beast Tree - all creatures that are or were related to animals. Ex: lizards, dogs, gnolls, Lionels, Tabaxi, dragonborn
  • Second most numerous population in the world. They all generally excel in physical prowess and are sensory knowing.
  • Wish to be ally with humans who were friends and masters to them in times long gone, but humans do not view them as equal so there is always a contest between the two.
  • Wishing to dwell in balance with nature like the fae, they respect them and their ways.
  • Constructs are unnatural tools made by humans to replace what beasts had been called upon to do. There is a deep hatred for Constructs among the beastmen.
  • Monsters need destroyed without exception, but it is not uncommon to find distant or close relatives among the monsters from time to time that muddies the waters.
Fae Tree - all creatures infused with magic and relating to the fae or spirits of nature. Ex: dryads, elves, dwarves,
  • One short of being the least numerous, the fae are mostly long lived and creatures of dedication to a calling. Each with a role to play in life and centuries or more to dedicate themselves to it. Producing offspring is rare even if it weren't an afterthought.
  • Humans are a primitive blight upon the land dabbling in things they do not understand and burning themselves and the land around them in the process.
  • Beasts are a primitive tribe little better than the animals they ascend from. Their lesser talents with magic rank them lower than humans. While humans are children that need disciplined to be better or stop, beasts are the babies that can do little but make a mess of things and don't have the acumen to do better.
  • Constructs are unnatural contraptions born of mostly human ingenuity. They are little more than tools and stop gaps for lesser races. The mana at their cores is similar to that of fae spirits, so the fae give the constructs their sympathies but not their respect and view it much like one might view a totally capable and independent mind trapped in a body that refuses to cooperate with them like a mixture of oil and water.
  • Monsters are blights upon the land nearly equal to humans but surpassing them in that even humans know when to stop. All must be eradicated.
Monster Tree- all creatures considered hostile toward the members of the other trees. This is specifically for those who wish to play antagonist to the rest of the characters in the world. For those wishing to play 'good' monsters, one of the other trees is more appropriate.
  • diverse and numerous, while some monsters spawn from the void or other places of ill repute, some are what becomes of other racial tribes that are overcome by emotion or magical power.
  • Will Eat, Kill, Torture, Abuse, or Enslave any other race and in some cases other races of Monster.
  • Typically monsters are more likely to work together for selfish reasons as it pertains to overcoming the other races.
  • Will corrupt and repurpose constructs for darker ends if possible and more readily than the other races.
  • The 1st continent known as the Dark Continent is where most dwell. Those find on the 2nd continent are generally few in number and 'home grown'.
Construct Tree - all creatures that are created of materials and items rather than organics and are sentient/self aware. Ex: Golems sub-types, Sentient Weapons (non-cursed), Warforged
  • They come in all shapes and sizes and are the least numerous and newest of the races. All were created with a purpose which they are most suited for.
  • Mostly humans make up the tribe they call Lord and Master. Many are created with a loyalty to their masters although some have deviated from their original design and purpose.
  • Beastmen are intelligent animals that wish to see them destroyed. That is all.
  • Fae or not well understood creatures of the metaphysical and supernatural. While there is an uncanny similarity and connection, it is distant and faded like a forgotten memory at the edge of remembering but never doing so.
  • All Monsters must be eradicated.
The tree you choose will determine the type of character you are running as well as what titles and some skills become available to them. While more explained in titles, you will have a free title available to your character based on the tree you choose. Once you claim a title for one of the trees, your character will be exclusively known as a member of that tree. You will then open up the ability to acquire additional titles within that tree as your character advances in prowess and abilities. If you wish to be a part of multiple trees at once, you must pay 7 points for a special Feature skill per additional tree.

Racial Evolution

Those wishing to use this feature should refer to the official race list.
Google Doc: PDF: Available on request

As characters grow in power and ability, they eventually unlock other titles pertaining to their racial tree. Ex: human tree character acquires the skill that allows flight. Then must then participate in an rp with a goal of evolving. They then earn the title Aerial during grading. Equipping that title turns the character into an Aerial. In this way, everyone can slowly but surely achieve the race they want to play as with more powerful races being available as you climb the ladder.

Evolution Tiers

Mundane - covers character progression from grade F-D. Character is just starting out and hasn't focused on a particular direction yet. Skills are widespread and low grade.
Intermediate - covers character progression from grade C-A. Character has chosen a focus and has raised it to grade C or higher. A new form gains attention from all sides gaining new allies and adversaries.
Ascended - covers character reaching grade S at least once. Character has either been isolated from or intricately involved in societal affairs due to their new level of power. Very few can stand against you, but those who do match your power.

Variant Path
More common among the Isekai, these creatures evolve pretty freely without requirements beyond the character grade. While they can be any of the other races, they are not normal by the world's standards.

Mundane - The character does not have any racial requirements to be this form and may evolve at any time for any reason to Intermediate.
Intermediate - May be taken whenever. As a perk (choose one of the following options)
  1. Infamous: your name is known in one nation of choice. you are infamous and as such intimidation is far more likely to succeed. You may not buy off criminal roles but intimidation gains a flat +1 for having any criminal titles
  2. Folk Hero: you are known in one nation as a symbol of the just and right. You are more likely to succeed at persuasion and charisma checks. Flat +1 for having any hero titles. Should you ever obtain a criminal title you must pay double the points to clear your name
  3. Cashback: Gain 28pts in points earned immediately. Gain permanent, mandatory title: [Wanted by ???] State what person or group is after you. Narrator can decide to leverage the title whenever they wish to have opposition to you to appear flavored by whatever 'Wants' you.
Ascended - Must have at least 1 S-grade stat. (choose one of the following options)
  1. Hero: You may choose a nation. Continental Lake, East Empire, Fae See, Kingdom, Magic Duchy, Republic, Ryke, West Empire, Widersia
    • HERO: You are now an officially recognized hero of that nation and gain the title [Hero of ???]. Character has been raised to the status of Hero for the nation of their choosing. Their purpose is to fight for and defend the people of that nation against all enemies. Hero's are rare in the world.
    • FATED: They will naturally be drawn to their charge's enemies and likewise the enemies of the nation will be drawn to the Heroes.
    • TRIUMPHANT: The collective might of the heroes will always be sufficient in eventually quelling any opposition even if only one remains.
    • BELOVED: Heroes are naturally acknowledged and adored by the people in their charge. They have freedom to come and go in the nation of their people. Their nation takes care of them and in turn, the heroes are expected to protect their nation.
    • LOYAL: Heroes can never be made to go against the thing they are a hero over.
    • FAVORED: They have the uncanny ability to create a way to the perfect ending that would have been impossible for anyone else. As much as fate twists in the favor of Heroes, should they fall, those they protect will be without recourse and be made to face all manner of hardship including the possibility of annihilation. (Requires Folk Hero Perk from Intermediate level)
  2. Demon Lord: You may choose a nation: Continental Lake, East Empire, Fae See, Kingdom, Magic Duchy, Republic, Ryke, West Empire, Widersia
    • LORD: You are now officially recognized as a Demon Lord of that nation and gain the title [Demon Lord of ???]. Character has been raised to the status of Demon Lord for the nation of their choosing. There can only ever be one Demon Lord per country.
    • OPPRESSOR: Their purpose is to fight against and oppress the people of that nation.
    • FATED: Demon Lords are rare in the world. They will naturally be drawn to their victims' allies and likewise the Heroes of the nation will be drawn to the Demon Lord.
    • MIGHTY: The Demon Lord generally always has the might or resources needed to repel all opposition short of a united Hero offensive.
    • FEARED: Demon Lords are naturally feared and avoided by the people in their domain. They have freedom to come and go in their nation. Their nation's resources are generally theirs for the taking.
    • CORRUPTED: Demon Lords can never cross over to the side of good through any choice or power.
    • RESOURCEFUL: They have the uncanny ability to create a way to escape defeat that would have been impossible for anyone else.
    • VULNERABLE: As much as a demon lord twists fate in their favor, they generally lack the means to defeat all heroes at once. Should they fall to a group of heroes, they will be unable to avoid their fate unlike their escape ability in other circumstances. In a 1x1, a demon lord is assumed to be stronger than a Hero. (Requires Infamous Perk from Intermediate level)
  3. Harem King/Queen:
    • Character may choose one NPC per RP. If the NPC is still alive by the end of the RP, the NPC joins the character's harem and becomes an ally and asset. The grade of the NPC dictates the grade of the asset.
    • However, with each powerful ally or lover made, the character also gains a new [Nemesis of ???] of title. These titles are not optional. The grade of the asset gained is the grade of the Nemesis gained.
    • Whenever you leverage a member of your harem in RP for a narrative or mechanical boost, your Nemesis will be controlled by your narrator and join whatever opposition you may be contending with in the RP they are used. (requires Cashback perk from Intermediate)

It’s common that these children end up in the care of monasteries and various temples in hopes that a divine discipline can give them direction in these matters.

Distinguishable by their insectoid wings, which resemble those of butterflies or moths, pixies might be mistaken for actual insects at a distance if it weren’t for their sparkling trail of dust left in their wake as they fly. Revelers in the ways of mischief, it’s hard to find a creature who isn’t put off by the thought of encountering these fae, but, at their core, pixies rarely are truly malicious.

Description: Zentail are a physically weaker, subterranean race that are well known for their administrative and tinkering skills as well as their exceptionally long lives. They are small, slender humanoids distinguished by their pale white skin, black eyes with piercing yellow-orange irises, and teeth devoid of canines (which renders them unable to properly chew meat, which they cannot digest). Due to physical deviations, their blood and muscle are an ebony black. Time spent underground has made the species sensitive to sunlight without exception–even ten minutes of exposure can be enough to leave them with a light sunburn. The Zentail derive needed nutrients from a variety of herbs grown in their subterranean caverns but also have a slow metabolism leading them to only need to eat once every three days. Zentail are exceptionally long lived due to the concoction of herbs they consume regularly, however being deprived of this mixture can cause dangerous health issues for them. The herbs they use are found wild, so typically this is not an issue. It is said that a Zentail completely deprived of the nutrients needed will fall into a coma and die within three days, this is called the "Zentail Death Trance". Zentail are rarely found in cities, and their unique physique requires them to wear specially tailored clothes at all times.

Slime (feathers95) (TBD)

[Source Kin]
Description:
Source Kin are the closest modern manifestation to the enormous primordials of the world's beginning. Being so closely descended, source kin have a prideful streak that causes them to renounce their initially humanoid form. Growth in power is directly proportional to physical growth. Source kin lack religion but do revere the sky, mountains, and oceans, which they believe to be dormant primordials. Having bodies composed of raw elements, they are walking forces of nature and are equally devastating, as they unleash and spread their element through auras and physical contact.

A historian once referred to them as a mirror of the terrible atrocities mortal kind inflict on one another.

Description: First discovered in the northwestern desert, the Fabriken people are a race of "animated" cloth. Unlike living dolls and living armor, the animation of the cloth is false. The true body of a fabriken is a magical particulate, not unlike soot in appearance, that must inhabit a shell or membrane of some kind in order for it to take a functional form. Being that the inhabitable objects and materials vary so much, fabrikens can take many different forms from humanoids to spindly legged forms akin to crustaceans.

My Race isn't a listed Title
A quick google search shows there are more fantasy races than we have page space to list. As such, we will try to make titles for the more common choices, but will rely on the flexibility of the system and the recommendations of the players on how to add to the list. If your specific race or racial variant is not an achievable title, let us know. We can add to the list.

Titles
Titles have been mentioned in a few posts now and at least one is required when creating your character. Here we will discuss what the titles are and how they will serve the rp. We will also list some of the more common ones and give instruction for how to request additional titles to be added to the list.

What are Titles?

Titles are meant to be descriptors added to your character that help the world and other characters know who and what you are and how they might interact with you. Your race is dictated by titles, so that will obviously influence your visual appearance as well as cultural background and how others perceive you. Aside from race, titles can be used to indicate your character's job/profession/role in the community/world. Titles like Expert Blacksmith and Seasoned Adventurer to name a couple. With these, the scenarios you are allowed to RP increases.

In the previous example, the Expert Blacksmith may be able to to participate in smithing guild meetings where prices are set, items and business are discussed, or be on the receiving end of boons from the king for blacksmiths willing to volunteer services to the kingdom specifically. Same for adventurers but as it relates to guild business and general adventuring. Titles define who the character is as well as acts as passports into various types of roleplay.

Aside from what you are and what you do, titles can also define moral character and societal standing. Criminals will inherit criminal titles. Nobility or those striving to become nobility may acquire noble titles that will elevate their position in society. A local hero of a town or the city may get a heroic title or ‘good guy greg’ type of title to further reinforce the character's moral fiber where NPCs may be more likely to call out to them for help. Criminals will obviously be more likely to be treated in the opposite with many shunning them or becoming outright hostile.

Criminal Titles

These titles are granted by rp graders/mods when the rp's are turned in or during rp if the rp is ran by one of the system's staff. The are given to characters that participate in the following behavior. Characters may receive additional copies of the same title for each separate instance warranting the earning of the title. A thief may earn the title several times over for one rp where they go on a stealing spree. Each additional acquisition raises the grade of the the criminal title. The grade indicates the amount of points necessary to spend to have the title removed. Each letter grade adds an additional 7 points to the buy off price. Criminals are generally not allowed to enter cities through their gates or ports. Criminals are not allowed to join any craft or adventuring guilds. Mercenary groups are still possible. Rogue/Assassin and other criminal guilds become possible. Discovered criminals are removed from any positions that prohibit criminal titles.
  • Murder - killing of any person who is not of the monster type and not possessing a criminal title
  • Abuser - willful harming of another person without their consent and they not in possession of a criminal title or monster title
  • Thief - taking possessions from another creature that is neither a criminal nor monster
  • Vandal - intentional damage to property owned by a non monster/non criminal without permission

Price to Buy Off Criminal Title
These points will count against character point cap like all earned points.
  • F-grade - 7 points
  • E-grade - 14 points
  • D-grade - 21 points
  • C-grade - 28 points
  • B-grade - 35 points
  • A-grade - 42 points
  • S-grade - 56 points

Good Person Titles?

On the opposite end of criminal titles, there are 'good' titles to reward characters that consistently perform 'good' behavior that does not involve criminal activity. Helping old ladies cross the street, protect towns from monster invasions. These are acts of good and kindness out of charity. They are not adventurer missions or requests with rewards. They are acts of true heroism. Rp graders are likely to grant 'good' titles to characters consistently displaying such activities in their rp. There are no lists or predetermined requirements. They are not things a character merely acquires like hitting achievements in a game list. Of the 'good' titles, one stands above them all and is pivotal to the setting: Hero.

Race Titles

One of the required equipped titles in the player skeleton, Race Titles are important for creating a foundation for roleplay for the character. The race title sets your character's race. The character's race is obviously tied to visual appearance, but also to cultural significance.
  • Example: An elf character will obviously be more likely to be allowed into elven villages. Areas where elves are persecuted will be more likely to harass the elf character. NPCs that like elves will think more highly of you and be more likely to treat you favorably. Similarly, a character with a lizardman type title would have the right to partake in a lizardman ritual that allows them to find a mate and/or grow wings.

Size Template
Some characters are bigger and smaller than your typical human. No problem. We have templates for that. If you want your character to be of a particular height/length, then be sure to set the following stats accordingly (add the title to your character sheet like the others if your character has earned it):

Tiny (Cost: 56)
  • Height: Under 2 feet tall/long
  • Weight: Under 8 pounds
  • Speed - B Grade (28) or higher
  • Precision - B Grade (28) or higher

Small (Cost: 28) - They can generally still function in a normal humanoid settlement but may need a stool or a running jump. They still prefer the wilderness settings, homes, and dwellings tailored to their size. More vulnerable to the world than most, their dwellings are also a lot more secluded or hidden when possible.
  • Height: 2 to 4 feet tall/long
  • Weight: 8 to 60 pounds
  • Speed - D Grade (14) or higher
  • Precision - D Grade (14) or higher

Large (Cost: 98) - These are creatures that are around 8 feet to 16 feet tall/long and weighing between 500lbs and 2 tons. They can generally squeeze into sturdy doorways and halls meant for smaller creatures with comedic effect but tend to prefer dwellings and wilderness that are more open. Smaller creature settings like hobbit and gnome holes are out of the question. Most mounts in the setting and giant creature variants would be at least this big.
  • Height: 8 to 16 feet tall/long
  • Weight: 500 to 4000 pounds (2 tons)
  • Strength - D Grade (14) or higher
  • Vitality - D Grade (14) or higher
  • Superstrength skill - E grade (28) or higher
  • Feature: Large skill - E grade (14) or higher. Grants character natural E grade heavy armor in equipment
  • Natural Weapons - E grade (28) or higher. A weapon listed in the equipment section of the character sheet.

Huge (Cost: 196)
  • Height: Over 16 feet tall/long
  • Weight: Over 4000 pounds (2 tons)
  • Strength - B Grade (28) or higher
  • Vitality - B Grade (28) or higher
  • Superstrength skill - C grade (56) or higher
  • Feature: Large skill - C grade (28) or higher. Grants character natural C grade heavy armor in equipment
  • Natural Weapons - C grade (56) or higher. A weapon listed in the equipment section of the character sheet.

Larger or Smaller - creatures that are permanently larger or smaller than the Small or Large Templates are possible but are generally discouraged due to the limitations they pose to the character in interacting with the world and other characters. Many such creatures are monsters relegated to their isolated sanctuaries. Either to be hunted with prejudice on sight or to be avoided at all costs. Some are just too fragile for the world beyond their hidden enclaves. Statistics to achieve size would be to continue the pattern of small or large. Ex: Huge Strength - B Grade or higher

Society Titles
These titles are only accessible with a sufficiently ranked Connected Skill or a roleplay after achieving the titles specified requirements.

Classes

All characters start as Artless. As they grow and develop by gaining skills, equipment, and stats, they can begin to meet the requirements to acquire and equip special titles called classes. While a class is equipped, a character can leverage the perk offered by the class. Advanced classes may require previous classes in their tree in order to leverage their perk, but otherwise classes may be freely acquired and equipped assuming requirements are met. Only 1 class may be equipped from each tier. There are 3 tiers. Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3. To take a higher tier class, you must ensure you meet all the requirements of its preceding class.

Skills
Skills are pivotal in growing and customizing your character. While your stats may make it clear who is a tank, mage, or rogue type, your skills will allow you to differentiate yourself from others with the same stats. Additionally, skills help shape the character visually like in the attaining of some racial titles. Perhaps key to any Isekai is the ability for the protagonist to become very powerful and bring change to the world. Skills are what allows a character to transcend the typical limits of the characters made for this world/RP. Below you will find a list of skills your character may acquire and upgrade. If you feel your character concept cannot be achieved with the skills currently present, please reach out to
Novama
Novama or other RP staff and see what can be worked out. In some cases, we may add to the list of skills available. In other cases, we may help outline a build path where a series of skills could help you meet your ideal.

Note: Systems are prone to mistakes, exploits, and misinterpretation. We will perform updates/edits/improvements over time to the system as it expands and grows from being used by the community. We will inform you of changes as they occur.

How to Read Skill List


The following list will display the skill and the skill's starting grade when purchased. It will then list the requirement to acquire the skill, generally a stat grade. The points listed are the price to acquire the skill as well as the price to upgrade the skill for increased effectiveness. If a required skill or stat is listed for a skill's acquisition, then those same stats and skills must also be upgraded each time you wish to upgrade the skill you bought by having them. Some skills will be listed as [ability] because they allow the character to perform a specific action typically granted solely by that ability. Unlike typical skills that are generally combined to form abilities, [ability] skills are typically useful as they are without additional modification. Some of the skills and most of the abilities come with restrictions on their use. They cannot be spam used and they likely have other caveats. Lastly, the skill description will be given. If you have trouble reading any of the skills or need additional explanations, do not hesitate to ask

#Fighting Style [Style Name] F (7 points)
Type: Offensive!, Narrator!
Pre-req: E grade stats relevant to weapons, All weapons relevant to style
Note: When taking this skill, be sure to specify the weapon group of the style and give a brief description of how your style works.

The character has trained with specified weapons and received knowledge in its use. With each grade in Fighting Style, the character may earn a technique for a 7pt reduction. The techniques earned in this way must have different cores. Techniques may be combined as the character wishes to form abilities. Each technique may be upgraded like a skill may be upgraded individually but may not exceed the level of the Fighting Style. Techniques may be combined with others in the same fighting style. Techniques may not be combined with techniques from other styles. Ranged weapons require a range technique to make the effects of the fighting style extend to the range of the weapon. Additional Techniques may be purchased for a style at any time.

Fighting Style, the skill, may be used as an ability independent of its techniques.
Ex: [technique name] - grade of technique - [tech core] - [description of the technique]

Common weapon types
  • Swords
  • Axes
  • Polearms
  • Shields
  • Cannons
  • Guns
  • Bows
  • Crossbows
Some techniques display Action: 1. Techniques with this identifier will cost an additional action to perform in combat for each additional technique with the same identifier. A post in combat may not contain more than 4 'action' techniques or abilities
Ex: Deflect + Link + Knockback = 2 actions.

Technique Cores

Accurate - the technique makes it so the target's speed is treated as though it were reduced by 1 letter grade. Amount reduced increases by 1 grade each time technique is upgraded.
Area - the technique allows for an attack that sweeps a large area 5ft in radius. Generally prompts would be targets that it is coming. Radius increases per grade to: 15ft, 50ft, 500ft, 1/2 mile, 5miles.
Aura - Action: 1 - technique/stance releasing a harmful aura from the user's body, hurting any creature that comes into direct contact with it. Common ones being flame or electric. The aura technique cannot be combined with a ranged technique. Aura acts as a hazard. Grade of aura indicates the amount of damage automatically taken by whoever comes into contact with it. F = 1 damage. E = 2 damage. and so on. Aura doesn't typically persist long enough with enough intensity to damage objects save for narrative impact.
Blight [type] - Generally this is a technique that enhances an attack in some way to deal extra damage if effective. ex: flames, poison, magicyte
Blind Fighter - Character has the ability to use the weapon in melee range in dim or no light situations as if they could see. (does not upgrade)
Blind Ranged Fighting - Character has the ability to shoot/Throw in dim or no light situations as well as in normal conditions up to 20ft. Upgrade to increase range character can effectively attack without sight. It does not enhance the effective range of the weapon or range of abilities overall. E - 40ft, D - 80ft. Further than that will take magic or sensory help.
Contact - a technique for overcoming a target's resistances. Each grade of Contact nullifies that grade or lesser of resistance to the attack for up to an hour unless cured or repaired. does not stack with itself.
Contagion - a technique that can spread the effects of the first attack through contact. Ex: if target is lit on fire by technique, anyone that comes into contact with target will also be ignited. Increased grade of contagion increases number of potential infected individuals by 1.
Continuing - the attack has a means of causing ongoing damage. An acids or fires burn. The poison that courses through veins. This technique only applies to sources of damage in an attack and not other special effects. This technique can be used to inflict long term ongoing effects like diseases or curses or short term effects like pain.
Deflect - Action: 1 - used to create abilities to deflect non-magic or physical attacks. Each grade of deflect further reduces stat contribution to effectiveness of attack against you.
Drain - Action: 1 - weakens target by one letter grade in one of their stats on successful damage. the forms the technique take could be varied based on the stat impacted. Afflicted targets regain stats 1 grade per in rp hour. The stat it drains must be defined in advance and remain that way. Does not stack with multiple uses. The drain only weakens the stat's for the purposes of action effectiveness and not to disarm or nullify skills.
Enervation - Action: 1 -puts the abilities of target on cooldown that are the same grade or less than the technique
Flare - Action: 1 -Creates a sense overload of one sense during an attack. More senses or stronger disability as the technique grows. When duration selected, increase by 1 target post per grade. When not in combat, narrator discretion for duration.
Flexible - a long flexible attack meant to trip up or disarm an opponent or it could be used as an unstable and harder to read attack. examples like whips, razor-ribbons, segmented swords, etc.
Homing - tech fires projectile or energy burst than can track and follow target. If it still misses, the attack persists briefly and tries one more time before
fading/missing again. Amount of attempts after missing is increased by 1 per grade of tech core which increases attack effectiveness by the same amount.
Hot Shot (14 points) - Character is good at hitting called shots to disarm or hit weak points if they already know where to aim. The higher the grade of tech core, the higher the grade of creature they can hit weak points on. In the case of weak points, damage sustained is doubled.
Incapacitating - Action: 1 -puts a target to sleep/knocks them out/paralysis/petrification/immobilization/etc. Target must be same or lesser letter grade than technique. Costs 14 points to acquire and level rather than 7. This is not a kill shot but can open up the target to a kill shot afterward.
Incurable - wounds produced by this technique will not heal nor regenerate magically or supernaturally unless skills involved are greater than the incurable technique grade.
Indirect - Must be assigned after a Ranged technique is acquired. hit targets beyond cover and other obstacles through unique attacks that can come from other directions. ex: conjuring a lightning bolt, arcing an arrow or bolt over head, ice barrage from the side. Must be same grade as the range tech core to provide full cover bypass at all ranges.
Irritant - Action: 1 -a potent smell or itch that distracts the target and/or partially blinds them for a time. grade of tech core can effect creatures of same or lesser grade.
Knockback - Action: 1 -this technique specializes in sending targets flying. The greater the grade of technique, the greater the potential distance a target may be force moved. See optional knockback rules for knockback table and other details.
Linked - an ability with this technique that successfully does damage causes this technique to go off and succeed at hitting the target again with a different weapon automatically, increasing damage dealt by 1. No special effects are added to the 2nd strike other than both go off. Each grade links one more damage to the first. Requires at least 2 weapons to use and works with Natural Weapons also.
Vorpal (14 points) - your attacks can overcome immunities to damage targets acquire through Change State skill and similar powers. Each grade allows your attacks to be effective against a stronger grade of target. C grade Vorpal let's you damage C grade Ghosts. B grade Vorpal lets you damage B grade lightning elementals. etc.
Non-Lethal - Abilities with this technique applied will never kill the target(s). Grade of technique must be equal to grade of ability to properly mitigate its lethal potential

Quake - Action: 1 -creates shockwave that erupts towards a target across the ground. Causes a 10ft long and deep fissure wide enough for a regular human to fall into. Additional assignments make a deeper and hole. E - 20ft, D - 40ft. Technique does not go beyond D without magical skills.
Range - gives weapon attacks longer range. 10ft at rank F. 30ft at rank E. 100ft at grade D. 1,000ft at grade C. See magic skills to enhance range further. Required technique to apply fightingstyle effects at ranges beyond 5ft.
Reach - modifies weapon to permanently double the effective reach of a melee weapon (ex: sword has 5ft reach => 10ft reach with tech), but makes the same weapon disadvantaged in use at its original range. Enemies must use an extra move action to overcome the reach if they wish to move into melee range.
Reflect (14 points) - Action: 1 - send a physical attack back at the attacker. Range depends on Ranged tech core. Grade of the Reflect must be greater than the attack ability grade being reflected. If the attack is a melee attack, then the reflected attack is treated like a surprise attack.
Selective - Allows the user to choose who is affected by their weapon style techniques when used at range or in wide areas. Same for aura.
Spreading - Attacks in an area can expand to impact the surrounding area and creatures also. visible enough to dodge, it's another way of increasing damage area. Spread is 5ft in all directions. Spread distance at one time increases by 5ft per grade. Spread duration is based on narrator discretion and/or duration based skills like duration or continuing.
Tangle - Action: 1 -ensnares target so they have difficulty moving or doing anything. The snare generally has a visible component like ice or vines that can be destroyed to prematurely end the binding. Strength of binding is relatively low but takes an action to break free from at minimum. Each grade of technique increases hp of binding by 1 with F being 1 hp. Duration of tech core is 1 post of target per grade. If out of combat, duration is up to narrator discretion.
Trap - Action: 1 - technique that lays a physical or magical trap. cannot be reused until triggered. is assumed to be hidden when placed. Each grade increases the strength of the trap. Duration of entrapment is left to narrator discretion but cannot exceed time before next use of the trap tech core.

The grade of the tech core matches the maximum amount of vitality that can be absorbed from a target at one time. Max amount of healing can only be reached by dealing equivalent or greater amounts of damage to the target.

Specialization

1 fighting style of your choice may become Specialized and viewed as your character's main fighting style.
To apply, simply put [Specialize] by the fighting style skill in your skill list. Useful for saving points long term and having more flexible weapon ability creation for your preferred weapon style.

Result:
  1. You no longer get a free 7pt reduction to buy your first technique per grade for the fighting style
  2. Most techniques cost 21pts
  3. Techniques that do not gain functionality beyond F grade (like reach) still only cost 7pts
  4. Techniques that typically cost 14pts will now cost 35pts
  5. All purchased techniques for the specialized style are assumed to be the same grade as the fighting style without need to pay for upgrades.

Magic

[type] #Affinity F (7 points)
Type: Augmenter!
Pre-req: E Grade Intelligence!

Represents Character's affinity with a specific type or genre of mana application. A type gives the mana a form and purpose. Allows the character to make attacks or other techniques with that affinity imbued into it allowing for new or enhanced effects. Common types are elemental based ones or specific spell types which help focus what the spell looks like and/or what it does. Ex: Fire or Polymorph.

Aside from affinities that are purely used to flavor spells with form, there are more advanced affinities that give mechanical functions in addition to basic damage. The following is a list that relies on the Magic skill to be of equal or greater grade.

Some techniques display Action: 1. Techniques with this identifier will cost an additional action to perform in combat for each additional technique with the same identifier. A post in combat may not contain more than 4 'action' techniques or abilities
Ex: Deflect + Link + Knockback = 2 actions.

Other Possible Affinity Examples

Accurate (A) - the technique makes it so the target's speed is treated as though it were reduced by 1 letter grade. Amount reduced increases by 1 grade each time technique is upgraded.
Aura (A) - Action: 1 - technique/stance releasing a harmful aura from the users body, hurting any that come into contact with it. Common ones being flame or electric. The aura technique cannot be combined with a ranged technique.
Blight (A) - Generally this is a technique that enhances an attack in some way to deal extra damage if effective. ex: flames, poison, magicyte
Blind Fighter (A) - Character has the ability to use the weapon in melee range in dim or no light situations as if they could see. (does not upgrade)
Blind Ranged Fighting (A) - Character has the ability to shoot/Throw in dim or no light situations as well as in normal conditions up to 20ft. Upgrade to increase range character can effectively attack without sight. It does not enhance the effective range of the weapon or range of abilities overall.
Contact (A) - similar to blight, it is extra damage source added to the attack but it is one that requires repeated or continuous exposure to do its effects. in this way it may overcome resistances that may stop blight techniques at the expense of repeated and/or prolonged use.
Contagion (A) - a technique that can spread the effects of the first attack through contact. Ex: if target is lit on fire by technique, anyone that comes into contact with target will also be ignited.
Continuing (A) - the attack has a means of causing ongoing damage. An acid or fire burn. The poison that courses through veins. This technique only applies to sources of damage in an attack and not other special effects. This technique can be used to inflict long term ongoing effects like diseases or curses or short term effects like pain.
Deflect (A) - Action: 1 - used to create abilities to deflect physical based attacks. The higher the grade the more effective it is at dodging a hit or reducing amount of damage sustained.
Drain (A) - Action: 1 - weakens target by one letter grade of effectiveness in one of their stats. the forms the technique take could be varied based on the stat impacted. Afflicted targets regain stats 1 grade per in rp hour. The stat it drains must be defined in advance and remain that way. The drain only weakens the stat's for the purposes of action effectiveness and not to disarm or nullify skills.
Element (A) - This affinity gives basic control over element of choice. Does not replace the need for other skills, but enables basic usage. Changes base damage type of offensive spells to type of Element chosen. Common examples in IH:
  • Darkness
  • Earth
  • Fire
  • Ice
  • Light
  • Lightning
  • Metal
  • Water
  • Wind
Enervation (A) - Action: 1 - puts the abilities of target on cooldown that are the same grade or less than the technique
Flare (A) - Action: 1 - Creates a sense overload of one sense during an attack. More senses or stronger disability as the technique grows. When duration selected, increase by 1 target post per grade. When not in combat, narrator discretion for duration.
Flexible (A) - a long flexible attack meant to trip up or disarm an opponent or it could be used as an unstable and harder to read attack. examples like whips, razor-ribbons, segmented swords, etc.
Homing (A) - (requires ranged skill) tech fires projectile or energy burst than can track and follow target. If it still misses, the attack persists briefly and tries one more time before
fading/missing again. Amount of attempts after missing is increased by 1 per grade of tech core.
Hot Shot (A) (14 points) - Character is good at hitting called shots to disarm or hit weak points if they already know where to aim. The higher the grade of tech core, the higher the grade of creature they can hit weak points on. In the case of weak points, damage sustained is doubled.
Incapacitating (A) (14 points) - Action: 1 - puts a target to sleep/knocks them out/paralysis/petrification/immobilization/etc. Target must be same or lesser letter grade than technique. This is not a kill shot but can open up the target to a kill shot afterward.
Incurable (A) - wounds produced by this technique will not heal nor regenerate magically or supernaturally unless skills involved are greater than the incurable technique grade.
Indirect (A) - Must be assigned after a Ranged technique is acquired. hit targets beyond cover and other obstacles through unique attacks that can come from other directions. ex: conjuring a lightning bolt, arcing an arrow or bolt over head, ice barrage from the side. Must be the same grade as the range tech core to provide full cover bypass at all ranges.
Irritant (A) - Action: 1 - a potent smell or itch that distracts the target and/or partially blinds them for a time. grade of tech core can affect creatures of the same or lesser grade.
Knockback (A) - Action: 1 - this technique specializes in sending targets flying. The greater the grade of technique, the greater the potential distance a target may be force moved. See optional knockback rules for knockback table and other details.
Linked (A) - an attack of this affinity that hits causes this technique to go off and succeed at hitting the target again. No special effects are added to the 2nd strike other than both go off. Each grade links one more action to the first.
Vorpal (A) (14 points) - your spells can overcome immunities to damage targets acquire through Change State skill and similar powers. Each grade allows your spells to be effective against a stronger grade of target. C grade Vorpal let's your damage C grade Ghosts. B grade Vorpal lets your damage B grade lightning elementals. etc.
Non-Lethal (A) - Abilities with this technique applied will never kill the target(s). Grade of technique must be equal to grade of ability to properly mitigate its lethal potential

Character has found a way to make the effects they cause with their magic use to last longer. Narrator decides how many posts a particular duration will equate to. This holds true for Upgraded versions of the skill. Spells/abilities that use this skill do not go on cooldown until the effect of the spell/ability has expired. This can lead to permanently tying up use of all abilities with the same grade for the duration of a roleplay. With the exception of permanent effects, most spell effects will end after an rp is over if not sooner.
  • F - 1 hour in rp time
  • E - 1 day in rp time

Higher grades of skill allow more powerful or detailed versions of form. Character receives an extra 28pts per grade to customize form. Existing titles, stats, skills and abilities remain in new form. If the new form lacks the means to utilize skill, ex ethereal body that can't use weapon arts without being able to hold a weapon, then skill may be refunded for extra pts while in new form. It is assumed all worn items meld into the body and no longer apply to character unless stated otherwise. Growing large or small enough to classify as a different size category will require character to meet minimum size criteria as outlined by size titles.

Common uses: Elemental form, Ghost form, Monster form, Animal form

#Transmutation F (35 points)
Type: Ability!, Utility!
Pre-req: E Grade Intelligence!

Base stats
Duration: 1 post

Sense

#Appraisal F (0 points for Isekai’d characters, 7 points for world natives)
Type: Ability!, Narrator!
Pre-req: Requires meta knowledge, F Grade Character!
Note: Grade of appraisal naturally goes up with grade of character. For those that purchased the skill, it must be upgraded with points when character grade reaches the appropriate level.

Created with the ability for being a Player Character(isekai character), this ability allows the character to know information about a creature or object that might otherwise be unknown (ex: Grade of Threat of a monster). For things higher than F grade, it may get just a name or ??? until the character's Appraisal becomes more powerful.
For detailed information beyond a creature’s or object’s stats/skills/titles/abilities, character will need additional skills to broaden their wealth of information to draw upon when analyzing something. Ex: medical skill may give a user medical readouts of creatures that appraisal is used on. Wealth skill or other merchant related skills may give item values when appraising objects and materials.

If grade of appraisal is equal to or greater than character grade of target, then user can learn about target's titles. Any information beyond that will depend on grade of individual stats/skills/abilities and the narrator.

Range and number of targets is limited to 1 target they can see within 5ft. Magic skills can increase the range and area of the skill drastically. Frequency of use in a non-combat situation is up to narrator discretion.

Pre-req: E Grade Vitality!
Note: In order to block incorporeal and teleports, vorpal affinity or technique needs to be applied.

Base stats at F grade
Duration 1 post
1 target within reach

To calculate hp of barrier
E intelligence + F catalyst + F barrier = 4hp
D intelligence + E catalyst + E barrier = 7hp
C intelligence + D catalyst + D barrier = 10hp
B intelligence + C catalyst + C barrier = 13hp
A intelligence + B catalyst + B barrier = 16hp
S intelligence + A catalyst + A barrier = 19hp

Magic and other skills can further enhance the ability. Stationary barriers can be used as fortifications.
While barriers may be any color , texture, or design, any form of significant decoration, concealment, or extra features will require other skills.
Sufficient attacks or damage will destroy the barrier like any other overwhelmed defensive ability.

Character takes reduced damage/pain/debuffs/setbacks when hit by an attack, technique, or hazard using same/similar element
  • For full [Physical] resistance - 21 points per grade - rather than collecting a resistance skill per type of physical damage, this simplifies it for a price.
  • For full [Magical] resistance - 70 points per grade - rather than collecting a resistance skill per infinite number of damage types, this simplifies it for a price.

#Undetected F (14 points)
Type: Ability!, Defensive!, Stealth!, Utility!
Pre-req: E Grade Precision!

Character can cloak themselves through some means to become undetectable by a sense. Each rank of skill allows an additional sense to hide from as well as overall effectiveness of the presence suppression. Common senses: Vision, Touch, Smell, Hear, Taste. Aside from common human senses, you can also choose special super and 6th senses options. It should be noted that although the skill makes someone undetectable by the sense chosen, it does not actually erase the character's parts like turning into a ghost or vapor might. A character that cannot be touched can't walk through walls with that skill alone. Sonar and Infrared are 2 examples of senses that may reveal an undetectable character despite their blocks to various senses.

Racial titles could be whatever, but the base character's physical dimensions and features (like tail and wings) will not disappear. The identity grade dictates how well it holds up to scrutiny by creatures and items of varying other grades. Alternate Identity may also be used to dictate what is viewed by magic items and skills like Appraisal so long as the skill is actively being used when such items or skills are used on the character.

Skills like Elasticity can help or simply being of a bigger size.

While a creature is carried, they retain the ability to use their skills and senses on the world around them unless explicitly listed otherwise. This skill may not be used to justify forceful imprisonment and nerfing without additional skills.

Character can choose to have a good outcome as the result of a post they made. Ex: Jack lobs a fireball into a bandit camp. Due to Lucky, the fireball which would normally not be able to affect the entire camp had its effective range expanded due to hitting an explosive reserve stored in the camp.

Mechanically, it will also add 1 or more points to character's effectiveness score in performing an action that uses Lucky as part of the action. Ultimate amount of good outcomes and mechanical benefits is left to narrator discretion. At a minimum, their action should avoid worst outcome. Easiest way to handle this may involve adding in mechanical +1 for any narrative situations that may be possible to go in the character's favor.

Makers may apply augments to their crafts to make the item perform better or in unique ways but each upgrade must come with a setback of some kind in the form of a negative skill. enhancements are passives that may apply to the basic weapon attacks without the need for abilities. When applied to abilities, they do not change the grade of the ability. setbacks should make sense for the equipment in question and the bonuses given. Something that boosts attack in one way should weaken attack in another way. Something that boosts range in one way should shorten range in another way. These augments are not magical in nature.

The types of skills that may be applied are listed by the item type.

Limiters


Sometimes we intentionally restrain ourselves to better focus our efforts. Limiters provide such restraints to characters and the skills they are applied to. When a user takes a skill, they have the option in many cases to apply a limiter. Limiters are permanent ways to make a skill harder to use in a variety of ways. Sometimes it means the character simply can't use the skill in an ability because conditions can't be met. Sometimes it means the skill can regularly be used but the bonus granted by the limiter is weaker. In addition to making skills function better in exchange for inconveniences, they can also act as a way of differentiating skills and abilities between characters with similar skill selections.

No skill may have more than 3 limiters on it. This includes 3 grades of the same limiter or 3 different limiters. Each limit applied to a skill permanently boosts the effect of the skill by one grade. No skill effect may increase beyond the pre-tribulation value of that skill until Tribulation for related stat is completed. After tribulation, no skill effect may exceed S grade. Due to inability to go beyond particular grades of effectiveness, skills are also permanently capped in the maximum grade they can achieve before no additional purchases are allowed. This will require them to rely on other skills if they wish to be in abilities of higher grades.

An ability made solely with a limited skill is the same grade as the skill and not its effect. Cooldown follows same logic. See example where bob limited his magic skill with 2 limiters:
Magic E(C), spell range D - D grade - 2 post cooldown - Bob fulfills the requirements of his limited magic to shoot his magic at a target much further away than one might expect of a D grade spell.

Each action with this skill in it will count as a use of the skill. May not be used with skills like Lucky which already have limited uses built in.
  • Rank 1 - 4 uses per RP
  • Rank 2 - 2 uses per RP
  • Rank 3 - 1 use per RP

Concentration
This limit applies to skills with effects that last longer than an instant. The skill requires focus to use. Disruption of focus causes the abilities with it to end prematurely if they activate at all.
  • Rank 1 - character may not attack or defend or use other skills with this limiter in them but may do other actions
  • Rank 2 - character can only use move actions at half speed and talk to others.
  • Rank 3 - character can do nothing for the duration of this ability

Deplete
Skills with this limit are more energy intensive to use, so it takes greater rest from cooldown to enable their usage again.
  • Rank 1 - Ability cooldown increases by 2 posts
  • Rank 2 - Ability cooldown increases by 4 posts
  • Rank 3 - Ability cooldown increases by 6 posts

Equipment
This limiter is for skills that require fairly specialized items to use. Assuming items are consumed in the use of this skill, the specialized items may be reused as needed assuming they are available.
  • Rank 1 - Skill relies on the special purchase or acquisition of an easily portable item or set of items. Ex: Gear Skill
  • Rank 2 - Skill relies on large item/items that are difficult to move around. Ex: Statue, Altar
  • Rank 3 - Skill relies on stationary items like a Workshop, Lab, or Shrine

Imbue
This limit may only be applied to skills with the Charges limit. This limit prevents the use of the skill to benefit oneself. Limit allows the limited usage of the skill in abilities of others. The imbue of the skill ends with the scene it was imbued in.
  • Rank 1 - Can imbue up to 3 people
  • Rank 2 - Can imbue up to 2 people
  • Rank 3 - Can imbue up to 1 people

Irreversible
Skills with this limit must be skills that altar the character's physical appearance or structure in some way. Once character has changed, they cannot go back to their prior form without a new RP with the goal to restore them to normal. Ability grade for this skill's usage is permanently on cooldown.

Maximum
Skills with this limiter cannot be used at lesser grades than their best grade at all times. Skills with this may not be used in Flux abilities.

Object
Skills with this limiter are placed on items through item skill, enchantment, or other methods. It increases the effectiveness of an item's ability to use the skill. User of the item cannot use the skill directly. Ex: cape with fly. User can snap fingers and have cape fly to them, but the user cannot fly by wearing the cape.

Permanent
The skill is always active in an ability at all times. This limiter only applies to skills that would legitimately inconvenience the character. Discuss with me before making use of the limit. If I deem the inconvenience to character not sufficient, I may suggest additional problems for character or veto use of the limiter. Ability grade for this skill's usage is permanently on cooldown.

Unpredictable
This skill makes any ability it is in prone to delivering undesirable results. Whenever it is used, get a narrator or mod to publicly roll a dice to determine the outcome. There is no means to sway the outcome even with skills like Lucky or Selective. Nothing and no one is safe from the potential chaos that may come once the ability is let loose.
  • Rank 1 - 25% chance of Undesirable results
  • Rank 2 - 50% chance of Undesirable results
  • Rank 3 - 75% chance of Undesirable results

Skill Mastery


There are those that dedicate themselves solely to the pursuit of the pinnacle of mortality. They stand above most others in one area of expertise. One skill at B grade may be improved to A grade at the cost of the following:

1. Character has at least 350 earned points
2. Character has no existing skills at A grade or higher (including appraisal among other skills)
3. Skill does not have any other skill that relies on it. (magic and various martial skills would not be eligible due to this)
4. Character must have B grade or higher renown (represented by titles and/or assets related to the skill's use)
5. Character has not tribulated and is not allowed to tribulate once this feature is acquired.

The use of an A grade ability with this skill causes 1hp damage to character in the form of mind and body strain. The damage cannot be resisted or healed until ability is off cooldown.

Abilities
After viewing the skill list, it is easy to question how the skills listed would allow for some of the cooler things seen in many Isekai products. With the exception of the ability skills, most other skills need to be combined with one or more other skills to achieve desired effects. Abilities, like skills and stats, have grades. The stronger the ability, the greater the cooldown. Although more roleplay than mechanical, it is possible to create your own style of magic or martial art through a careful construction of abilities from an ever increasing list of skills of higher and higher grades.

isekai-cheat-magician-taichi.gif


How does combining skills work?

Just about any two skills can be used together. To combine skills, simply create an ability in your character sheet by listing the skills together you would like to combine. Taking the example from the character skeleton, let's make 2 and breakdown what's in them.

  • Magic Lazer Beam - Magic C, Affinity Explosion F, Magic Range D, Area of Effect D - Character declares the abilities name while pointing hands at target and fires a destructive beam of magic that explodes on impact with the target - Grade C - 3 Post Cooldown

Explanation of Ability: Obviously the first part of the ability is the name. Nothing special and can be whatever you like generally. the more important part and the part that needs to be more consistent is the skills and their grades. In order to make a magic lazer beam, we obviously needed Magic , the skill that would let a character use magic. We also needed to flavor the magic as an exploding kind, so we picked up Explosion affinity. For our purposes, we assume the explosion is damaging with with great impact. Next, to achieve a spell that has a range beyond touch, we add Magic Range D, which allows the ability to travel some distance before dispelling. To get the mass area explosion on contact, we restate the presence of the explosion affinity skill as well as the area of effect D skill. The aoe skill allows the affinity of the magic to affect an area rather than just point of contact.
Giving the ability a description befitting the image in our mind as well as laid out by the skills, we easily convey to readers what they should picture when the ability is used in narration. The grade of the skill is C and determined by highest skill invested in the ability.

Formula for Magic Lazer Beam:
Magic C is the highest grade skill in the ability. Therefore, Magic Lazer Beam is a grade C Ability and has a cooldown of 3. This means the ability may only be used once in a post before the character must be posted with again 3 times, without using an E grade ability of any kind, before Magic Lazer Beam may be used again.

  • Meteor - Magic C, Affinity Explosion D, Affinity Fire D, Magic Range D, Area of Effect D - Character chants to the cosmos for deliverance with hands raised. In response, a massive fireball falls out of the sky ahead of caster to decimate a large area in explosive flames - Grade C - 3 Post Cooldown

Despite changing little about the ability's composition, we have created an entirely different ability. The character must wait 3 posts in between using this ability and the Grade C ability hits a bit harder.

Ability Cooldown Table
The are the default cooldowns when an ability is used. Skills may further augment the cooldowns. When an ability goes on cooldown, the specified number of posts must be made without using any ability of the same grade as the one on cooldown. This means there are many advantages to having and keeping abilities of various grades to attack, defend, and perform utility tasks.

F - 0 Post Cooldown (reducing the cooldown further may grant multiple use per post)
E - 1 Post Cooldown
D - 2 Post Cooldown
C - 3 Post Cooldown
B - 4 Post Cooldown
A - 5 Post Cooldown

S - ???

How do I make abilities involving weapons?

There are a couple different ways to go about it, but the simplest way would be through the skill Fighting Style. Fighting Style allows you to select a weapon or weapon group your style is effective for. You may then create your first technique. Techniques are a part of the fighting style skill that can be used to make abilities. Several of the Tech Cores (key components of a technique), allow for your weapon of choice to perform seemingly supernatural feats like slicing foes at range or infusing blades with flame. When using a fighting style to create a technique, be sure to include the fighting style skill AND the technique created in the ability. All Techniques may not be at a grade greater than the Fighting Style skill. Alternatively, clever use of the magic skill and related magic augmentor skills may bypass some of the needs listed.
  • Lake Splitter - Fighting Style [Swords] C, Technique Moon Cut [Range] D - Character shouts the technique as they swing the blade in an overhead chop. The magically augmented force of the swing streaks outward in a slicing 100ft line. - Grade C - 3 Post Cooldown
Should be noted that abilities like these will require the character to have sufficiently high Strength/Precision or Intelligence and one of the others if the other method is used.

Ability Flux

As an option, you can modify your abilities to function differently in exchange for less power. Ability Flux may only be applied to abilities that use Magic skill or Fighting Style skill as their base.

1. Temporarily reduce the grade of the ability you are attempting to modify
2. By the same or split amount that equates to the same amount you lowered your ability by, add or increase the augmenters of the ability (area, duration, range, targets)

Example:
Elfen Dead - B grade ability - 4 cooldown - Magic E, Targets F, Range F, Duration F, Telekinesis B, Fighting Style B, asundry fighting skills
Have 2 invisible arms that can severely unalive a target within 10ft of you for up to a minute

Elfen Dead (flux) - F grade ability - 4 cooldown - Magic E, Targets D, Range E, AOE F, Duration F, Telekinesis F, Fighting Style F, one fighting tech Have Many invisible arms that can stretch up to 30ft and annoy several targets within a 30ft long area in a single direction from user

In the example, the main ability went from B to E. This greatly weakened the abilities power but also impacted the usefulness of the 2 skills that gave the ability its grade: Telekinesis and Fighting style. in exchange, the ability can affect more targets at greater range.

Limitations:
1. targets augmenter may not be used by Fighting Style based abilities
2. duration augmenter only applies to damage and not other effects when used by Fighting Style based abilities
3. Area augmenter does not exclude caster when applied to magic based abilities.
4. Abilities may not be reduced below grade F in this way
5. Grade F abilities may not use this feature
6. Effect of ability flux may not increase beyond A grade without related Stat tribulated first
7. Cooldown of ability remains the same.
8. Fighting Style abilities may not add augmenters they do not currently have techniques for that weapon base.

Actions

Abilities typically take an action to use. Multiple abilities take multiple actions. However, it would seem possible to combine multiple abilities worth of effects into a single ability. This is possible, but it should be noted that doing so does not mitigate the Action cost. While these limits may be relaxed or not in place for every roleplay in IH, in rp's of IH that adhere to the Advanced rules, there is a limit of 3 actions per post per combat round. Abilities that combine multiple abilities worth of effects will cost the same amount of actions, so abilities that have more than 3 abilities/actions worth of effects will be vetoed during character approval and checks.

Magic
Magic or supernatural phenomena in Isekai Hell is almost exclusively the result of [Mana], the raw ethereal energy in all things and atmosphere, being processed and made to do work. Divine gifts, Chi, Ki, Psi energy, chakra, etc... It's all mana in the atmosphere or a host and is capable of being used to perform miraculous feats. Pretty much any creature in the world of Isekai Hell can learn to use magic of capable of meeting the requirements to process mana. Many monsters are the result of strong infusions of mana in every day items, plants, and creatures. Weird locations where gravity works in reverse, perpetually fog shrouded forests, and waterfalls drift toward the sky are usually the cause of strong concentrations of mana.

Rules to Use Magic

  • Character must be able to move hands, arms, and/or other parts of body to help the mana properly flow
  • Character must be able to speak or otherwise create noise to help give the mana purpose
  • Character must not move much from the spot they begin channeling short of what is necessary to cast the spell to avoid improperly directing the mana
  • Character must have Mana skill
  • Character should use a magic catalyst like wand or staff

There are skills to reduce the need for these magic components. However, mana manipulation, in general is an involved process. Improper mana manipulation can have dire consequences. Exploding or losing the ability to process mana at all are not impossibilities.

Beginner Magic

The default magic all beginner mages learn is the ability to focus mana into their finger and create a small glow of magical energy. A beginner offensive technique is to force mana into a target. A technique for defense that is fairly limited in effectiveness is a sudden and intense expulsion of mana in the direction of an oncoming attack. It can soften the impact of some blows. Actual spells are considerably more effective in all cases. All of these beginner techniques are gradeless and have no mechanical use. Only narrative use is for training mana control.

Boon

Similar to magic, boons are powerful assets associated with the most powerful beings in the setting. There are powerful entities in the world that can grant characters very powerful magical favors. Characters can Quest to become followers of a particular deity, buddies with a sentient device, or otherwise interlinked with a helpful anomaly in the universe, etc. Successfully doing so grants the character a 1 time use Boon Asset. During an rp, they may use the asset to call upon the aid of their benefactor to deliver help in a way specific to them and their domain of influence. There is no mechanical limit to the aid rendered, but narrator discretion advised.

No more than 1 boon asset may be held by one character at a time. Once used, the character must conduct another rp to regain the boon or go after a different boon. Boon's may not be used in World Rp's or Tribulations.

Contracts

2 or more parties may make an agreement with permanent terms and immediate effects for those that break them. How To:
  1. run an rp where 2 or more people make an agreement.
  2. agreement must define what is required by all parties.
  3. agreement must define what happens to any parties that fail to comply with the contract.
  4. have the contract blessed by the god of law Miralis.
Restrictions:
  1. contracts between IH members may not be made and enforced while one or more members are under duress.
  2. contracts between IH members must have all aspects of the contract defined before being agreed to.
  3. contracts cannot involve stuff that doesn't belong to or fall under the influence of any of the parties involved.
Common Uses:
  1. slaves
  2. business agreements
  3. curses/blessings
Common Penalties:
  1. death
  2. impairment/loss of points and features
  3. loss of assets/property
  4. curses
Recourse:
In the event a player fails to have their character live up to their end of an agreement, the other party of the agreement may inform a mod and the mod and the involved parties can sort out how to execute the terms of the contract (likely with character changes and/or marketplace exchange.

What to do After Character Creation
By this point, you likely have all you need to create a character, but then the obvious question of what to do with that character comes up. How do they earn points? Where is the RP to use them in? And likely more questions. The answer is: you have several options.

maxresdefault.jpg


1. Group up and RP

The first option for what to do after character creation is perhaps the most obvious and least dependent on timing.

1. You simply look up one or more active members of the community.
2. Ask to form a group with them or join their already going group.
3. Determine how your character and theirs meet and for what purpose.
4. Start or continue an Isekai Hell RP of your own making with this newly forged group. (to make one, simply put Isekai Hell as part of the title in one of the public forum roleplay areas and link to an official Isekai Hell thread from the first post).
5. After the goal of the RP is accomplished, message
Novama
Novama or one of the other mods and they will grade the RP.
6. Wait for the grader's post or reply. RP Narrators/leaders gain bonus 50% points. Multiple narrators split the bonus.
7. Once grade is in, copy the rewards for the RP to your character sheet by documenting the rewards received and adding a link to the post you received them in.
8. Rinse and repeat with the same group or forge a new group with a new mission/goal in mind.
  • Example: Jack and Jan have completed their characters and got them approved by staff. As recent joiners, they feel 2 newbies adventuring together would make sense as a starting point and neither have particularly strong goals on how to start. They decide to do an RP about them joining the local adventurers guild and taking on a simple request like collecting herbs. They then go to the public group RP forum and create a thread titled [Isekai Hell] Jack and Jan's first mission. Over the next week they proceed to post back and forth until they have fulfilled the goal they started with. Jack contacts Novama to grade the RP and informs Novama of any skills/actions/goals of significance that might impact the grading and rewards (ex: Jack is interested in joining the guild's harvesting and dismantling team responsible for turning raw materials into processed goods sold to craftsmen and other merchant faction members.)
After looking it over, Novama rewards the pair points for their characters (Jack gets bonus points for leading the RP) and Jack gets a title call [Apprentice Dismantler].​
Jack and Jan then copy the rewards to their sheet in the change log and update their sheet as they see fit, buying skills and upgrading stats. Jack equips his newly acquired title and says he would like his next RP to be one involving the guild dismantlers, which he can now do as an associated character to the faction. The process repeats.​

2. World Training RP

To participate in a dangerous World RP, members must have certification gained from participating in a World Training RP. This RP type is led by an IH moderator and is meant to help instruct and show a member what their character can do and how things operate in a World RP, but it will not have character death and maiming as a consequence. Reward will be points and certification to participate in Worlds.

3. World RP

More dependent on timing since they will not occur all the time. Higher risk, higher reward RPs. Other than Tribulations and Invasion style RPs Participation in World RP requires prior World RP experience or participating in a World Training RP.

1. World RPs will be created by the mods and advertised as such. To join, simply post in it after it is up.
2. World RPs are RPs with world shaping consequences.
3. Risk of character dying or otherwise getting an actual setback are real due to the RP being run by a mod and the stakes at play.
4. Rewards are generally better with point rewards being double the normal.
5. Pace of the RP will be at the mod's discretion.
6. Those that cannot post frequently enough will be skipped and presumed to be not doing anything of consequence.
7. RP ends when Mod says so. Rewards will come from that mod afterward.
8. Copy rewards and/or deal with the setbacks to character as a result of the RP.
  • Example: Novama creates a thread called [Isekai Hell: World RP 1] and announces it to the Isekai Hell community. Members post in it and react to the original narration post at the beginning. They then take turns posting for their characters while Novama narrates the outcomes to their actions and what the world and NPCs do. At the end, Novama posts everyone's rewards with double the typical point rewards and some cool items they didn't need to pay for. All received a title declaring they participated in the event and unlocked whatever the title allows in the RP world. One player's character did die during the event, however. They had to scoop the character and make a new one.

4. Solo RP

Easier to do and possible to be done at any time. (discouraged method)

1. Inform mods you will be doing a Solo RP
2. Start RP in 1x1 forum where it is still accessible to public
3. Make sure thread is called [Isekai Hell] like the others and links back to IH threads
4. Set a goal for the RP so you know when you are finished
5. Post the content of the RP to its conclusion
6. Inform Mod to grade it and provide link as well as mission of the RP
7. Graded solo RPs receive 50% of their normal rewards
8. After receiving grade and adding it to your character sheet, find another RP
  • Example: Bob sets up a solo RP to explore the day to day life of a student in the Ryke Academy in Ryken. After posting a 6000 word essay of a day in the life, the RP was graded. Rewards included 0 points and an optional title [Teacher's Pet]. Any lore established was given lesser weight compared to canon already established.

5. Invasion RP

Solo or in a group, you temporarily join an ongoing roleplay with a specific purpose like pvp or emergency aid

1. Inform mods you will be doing an Invasion RP
2. Secure one of them to be a 3rd party referee
3. Declare the RP you wish to invade and for what purpose
4. Mod then works out with the narrator of the RP being invaded the details like how long the invasion will be permitted to last and whether or not narrative in the RP needs to pause
5. Mod will then post in RP to declare the invasion is happening and the details of it
6. Invader may post after
7. Invader may not delay the post frequency of the RP too much
8. Any pvp will be resolved by the mod
9. After time of invasion has elapsed, mod will post and conclude the event
10. Depending on the nature of the invasion, the invader may be entitled to points at grading time.
  • Example: Bob contacts Nova and lets him know he would like to invade Jan's RP to kill Jan's character Duncan based on revelations in a previous RP where it was made known Duncan killed Bob's character's mom. Nova agrees and works out the details with Jan. Jan does not have the option to refuse the invasion, but can negotiate the terms of the encounter. Nova then makes a post in Jan's RP outlining how Bob's character appears in the current scene and why. He also lists the permitted number of posts from Bob before his character will be ejected from the RP whether he accomplished his goal or not. The invasion was also determined to be a world's RP in nature, meaning for the duration of the invasion, all characters involved were at mortal risk and entitled to additional rewards during grading.

6. Quest RP

Group RP where those specifically taking on the quest gain no rewards except for the object of their quest. Other participants get rewards as normal.

1. Tell Novama you want something for your character and wish to quest for it
2. Novama will then determine quest requirements to get what is being requested
3. You may then start the quest by starting a regular RP but stating in the first post the mission being undertaken and terms of the quest.
4. Once the quest is finished, submit it for grading and remind the graders that it is a quest RP.
5. Failure to adhere to the terms of the quest will result in no rewards.
6. Failure to put forth sufficient effort in the RP will result in no rewards.
7. Just about everything gained through Quest RP will have a point cost associated with it that will go into the "points earned" part of your character sheet when collecting the reward.
  • Example: Bob wants points, titles, and assets that he doesn't want to save up points for or earn in a traditional manner. Bob asks Novama for a quest to get those things. Novama tells Bob his mission will be months in length with content associated with the means by which Bob will acquire the items in RP. Bob joins the quest RP for a few months to get what he needs. RP concludes and is graded. Rather than points or titles, Bob gets the item with skills he's always wanted.

7. Persistent World RP

This type of world RP is based on a static location that is always dangerous and loaded with unknowns and loot. Like other worlds, this RP type may not be pursued unless RPers involved have World's experience or World Training Certification. Assuming all members are eligible for this type of RP and have secured a narrator that knows the IH combat system, the group may choose a location to explore. Locations are limited at the start, but more locations may be added to the list as such locations are discovered and submitted to Lore.
  • Dark Continent - NorthEast Coast
  • East Empire/Fae See - Battlefields and Ruins from war

8. Tribulation RP

There are 2 major types for this rp. Both types use the advanced combat rules of IH. Both pose the risk of death or permanent injury to characters. And both count as World's for the purposes of not locking your character into that one rp alone. Points earned for this rp type are doubled and rewards tend to be of a higher quality. Characters that have earned over 700 points cannot tribulate or participate in tribulation Rp's. The 2 have several differences:

Classic Mode
  1. Ran solely by Novama
  2. Is the original way of tribulating
  3. Must be requested and there may be a waiting list.
  4. Member may apply for one as soon as they have a character with an A grade stat
  5. Must be a 1x1 rp.
  6. A curated experience to the skills and narrative of the character taking the trial.
  7. Rewards are also more specifically tuned to the character.
  8. Once started, tribulation may not end before determining the fate of the participant. Not posting or pulling character out prior to reaching a point to end the narration will result in consequences for the character during grading.
Party Mode
  1. Can be ran by any member that knows the advanced combat rules for IH.
  2. Is a more modern version of tribulation.
  3. Generally easier to find or make a group for.
  4. Requires at least one character (the one tribulating) to have an A grade stat being tribulated, 350pts earned, and a World Certification.
  5. All characters aside from the characters tribulating only require the rp'er have a World Certification.
  6. Characters that have already Tribulated may not do so again until they have earned 100 points more. They may claim last tribulation rp at 700 points.
  7. RP location is confined by the locations listed for Persistent World RP's.
  8. Characters must overcome at least 1 B grade or higher Obstacle or Ability per character or companion skill participating in the rp.
  9. All characters must experience an S grade ability or obstacle before the end of the rp. Add an S grade ability or obstacle per S grade stat in the rp (pc, companions, or other).
  10. Over half of the challenges in the rp must be of a type associated with the stat being tribulated and should be overcome:
    1. Strength - Martial Combat or Physical Obstacles
    2. Precision - Stealth and Subterfuge, Ranged Combat, Crafting and Production
    3. Intelligence - Knowing things, Magic, Business and Commerce
    4. Vitality - Destruction and Suffering, Sickness and Deprivation, Defending
    5. Speed - Movements, Traversing, Racing, Dodging and avoidance.
  11. Characters may leave the rp at any time but will not receive any rewards for doing so and will be subject to any of the consequences that befall the character or the party as deemed appropriate during the grading process.
  12. Total effectiveness to overcome per challenge receives a bonus +1 per team up bonus against it.
  13. Barrier ability in tribs is always treated in its active defense form and not in its stationary form.
  14. Posting pace for rp must be set and adhered to.
Single Player Mode
  1. You want the curated experience of Classic but wish to have the foresight and control of Party Mode.
  2. Can be ran by any member that knows the advanced combat rules for IH.
  3. Like classic, the rp will be a 1x1 with narrator of choosing and the player will run the character to be Tribulating.
  4. Tribulation requirements of 350 points earned and an A grade stat for the Tribulation stat are required
  5. Participants should have a world certification.
  6. Characters that have already Tribulated may not do so again until they have earned 100 points more. They may claim last tribulation rp at 700 points.
  7. RP location is confined by the locations listed for Persistent World RP's.
  8. Character may leave the rp at any time but will not receive any rewards for doing so early and will be subject to any of the consequences that would have befell the character as deemed appropriate during the grading process.
  9. Character must experience a C, B, A, S set of obstacles and/or abilities prior to end of the rp. Add another S grade obstacle or ability for each S stat the character already possesses.
  10. Over half of the challenges in the rp must be of a type associated with the stat being tribulated and should be overcome:
    1. Strength - Martial Combat or Physical Obstacles
    2. Precision - Stealth and Subterfuge, Ranged Combat, Crafting and Production
    3. Intelligence - Knowing things, Magic, Business and Commerce
    4. Vitality - Destruction and Suffering, Sickness and Deprivation, Defending
    5. Speed - Movements, Traversing, Racing, Dodging and avoidance.
  11. Total effectiveness to overcome per challenge receives a bonus +1 per team up bonus against it.
  12. Barrier ability in tribs is always treated in its active defense form and not in its stationary form.
  13. Posting pace for rp must be set and adhered to.

9. Questing RP

Sometimes you need something other than points. You need something very specific with assurance you will have it by the end of the roleplay. For promises like that, you can consult with Novama Novama directly with a list of what all you need. Aside from ensuring you will gain certain skills or assets, you can also fix perceived character build mistakes. Have a skill you no longer want or never needed? Questing RP's are one of the few ways to make character modifications after points have already been spent on upgrades and new acquisitions. Questings, once began, cannot be paused or broken up by normal rp's. You may quit questing at any time, but the time required will be reset if the quest is taken up again. Those who participate in Questing Rp's but are not Questing may receive rewards as normal. They are also not entitled to the rewards specifically promised to the Quester. The terms of a Questing may not be renegotiated once agreed upon and started. Rewards from Questing are not free with the exception of undoing character modifications.

1. Present Novama with your list of needs.
2. Get a quote from Novama for what roleplay requirements must be met to assure your needs will be delivered.
3. Run or participate in one or more rp's without gaining points or assets and sometimes titles.
4. Indicate the rp is one of or all of the requirements Novama laid out for the Questing.
5. Receiving questing rewards at the end during grading.

General Rules
Although they likely should have been listed first, they are fairly common and already known to most rp'ers. Here is a list for new and old rp'ers alike as some will be specific to Isekai Hell.

  1. Post in 3rd person
  2. Post at least a few sentences. (what is the character doing, what are they saying, has the scene changed any)
  3. The mods are the only ones that move time in rp. (specific to World RP's. outside of world rp's, assuming any passage of time is prior to current events for the world)
  4. Please message Novama Novama or Mods with any questions or problems you have with the rp or its members.
  5. Have an approved character sheet in the character thread for Isekai Hell before participating in any Isekai Hell rps.
  6. Do not auto-hit or auto-succeed at combat or tasks in rp. Combat and skill based outcomes are decided by Mod (Specific to World Rp's)
  7. Any roleplay that is not finished and checked in for grading is not considered world canon.
  8. Let people know if you can't post for a while or if you are dropping the rp.
  9. You may only have one character of yours (minions and companions aside) in any one rp.
  10. The same character cannot participate in more than one rp at a time (exception to the rule: World Rp's allow simultaneous participation)
  11. Npc Companions are to be controlled by whoever the mod or narrator is for any given Isekai Hell rp.
  12. Creating NPC's in World Rp's is prohibited.
  13. Posts longer than a couple paragraphs must have a summary section that captures the main points of the post in a concise way (specific to World Rp's)
  14. You may post as frequently as you wish as long as they are not back to back. (In situations where timing matters like combat, this rule may be different)
  15. Any pvp to the death is generally discouraged, but pvp is allowed so long as there is a 3rd party arbiter like a mod to oversee things (unless the outcome is already agreed upon between combatants).
  16. please mention or contact those you posted at so they know you are waiting on their reply
  17. Changes to character should be done between rp's and not during. However, changes may be permitted if the mod or narrator is contacted in advance of the change for permission.
  18. The site doesn't allow X rated content so keep your smut out of Isekai Hell Rp's. Romance is allowed however.
  19. If a player is absent without word or post for a week, they will be assumed missing from the thread until they return. In 1v1 rp's, this means the rp is done and should be cashed in for half the rewards. For group rps of 3 or more, it will be up to the remaining group to continue or not and how they wish to do so.
  20. All characters must have a weak point/core. A piece of the character that represents who and what they are and if damaged or destroyed , would destroy them.

Death and Injury
In a world of swords and sorcery, it's no surprise that characters can get hurt or even die. You are primarily in charge of how and when those things occur to character. Exceptions being [World Rp's] where the mod dictates the outcomes of what is roleplayed. At the end of roleplays that you run for yourselves, it is possible to receive special titles indicating the character's wounded or dead status. What do you do with them?

Full Scoop

Perhaps you are bored of your character or simply don't see a way forward for them anymore. Maybe they reached the tentatively 700 point cap and are no longer earning rewards. Maybe they have reached the ultimate goal and simply need retired so you can pursue other character goals while the original character persists as a world NPC. Whatever the reason, whenever you wish to permanently stop writing for a character, you may Scoop them. When you scoop a character, you take half the points that have been "Earned" (rounded down) and apply them to the character created to replace that character. Depending on the nature of the Scoop, the orginal character is deceased, disappeared, or NPC'd. Beyond the points salvaged, the new character is not entitled to any of the possessions of the former character nor their social connections. Scooped points may not be pooled with other characters' scooped points. The scooped points are then applied to the "starting points" for the new character.

Dead Title

Perhaps your character dies but you do not wish to retire them. Resurrection is possible. Your body must be salvageable, you must have allies willing to taking your body to a place it can be resurrected, and then points must be spent. All of this must take place in an rp performed by those recovering the body with the deceased acting as narrator and/or rp'ing out death sequences. If done satisfactorily, the character will be brought back to life and all those involved will be entitled to rewards. The rewards will vary based on the effort involved and the nature of the death.

Injured/Maimed Titles

Characters that have received injury or that have received legitimate setback (lost their legs), may be entitled to additional rp rewards for rp'ing out the hardship of such setbacks. Characters that are sufficiently impaired due to damage can receive the Injured and/or Maimed title. Once equipped, the titles can be used once to gain the character additional rewards at the end of their rp 1 time. Afterward, the title is removed as the character is expected to be healed or to have otherwise found a way to cope.

Partial Scoops

Since this is a living world and an active community, many elements are prone to change. This includes the rules and the characters made up by them. In the event your character gets the 'hurt' or disadvantaged because of a rules change or a world change that severely impacts a portion of your character, you may apply for a Partial Scoop. Partial Scoops allow for the partial or fully return of points invested in certain skills deemed to be the reason for the scoop. Related Abilities, Titles, and Stats may also be impacted depending on the nature of the scoop which will vary on a case by case basis. All you must do is contact Novama or another mod of IH and your claim will be investigated. You may be granted full or partial right to scoop the problem areas. In the case the claim involves unrelated parts in the evaluation of the mod, a partial claim will be awarded and only the parts indicated by the mod may be refunded and changed. A full claim will allow modification of all requested elements.

Advanced Rules (Optional)

Some members would prefer more structure to their play. For consistency, there is a way for handling combats that I will go over here. These options will only be consistently adhered to for World Rp's and Tribulations. It is at the individual narrator's discretion whether the average rp will adopt these rules. If you need more clarification on these rules or others, or you have suggestions on additional rules, contact Novama Novama .

naruto-sage-training.jpg

Action Economy

A common limitation imposed during fighting is the "Action Economy". It is a restriction on the number of actions a character can take per post and generally per round. When a combat starts, the narrator will determine how much time may elapse in any given round and dictate the number of posts and actions a character may perform in that time. The current standard for IH:

6 second combat rounds

In that time, rp'ers may make:

1 post per combat round

Each post may contain:

3 actions allowed per post in combat

An Action, as relevant to our purposes, is one of the following character activities:

Attacking - narrating the character attacking one or more other characters. Each use of an offensive ability or offensive action counts as an attack action.

Defending - narrating the character defending themselves from one or more attacks. Each use of a defensive ability or defensive action counts as a defense action. When defending, this should be the first action or set of actions for the character.

Moving - narrating the character as walking/running/flying or otherwise moving across the scene location. Each movement, even when combined with another action, will count as moving and. Move is frequently paired with attacking actions to close the distance to targets. It is also regularly paired with Defense actions that involve dodging as sometimes the best option is to run away from danger. Without enhancements, the average speed of a human sized creature is 30ft a round. Small creatures can cover 15ft a round. Smaller creatures move even less. Exceptions are creatures that have alternative forms of movement to make up for their limitations. Larger creatures are only expected to move 30ft unless they have enhanced speed skills.

Other - Generally, any ability use (even ones not directly related to combat) counts as an action. Using senses to perceive the surroundings or recalling lore and other information relevant to the scene. Any action the character takes relying on a stat alone can count too: picking up something heavy, taking time to aim for a future attack, pondering the cosmos, or sorting your inventory, etc.

Especially complicated abilities/maneuvers may count as multiple actions or all actions for the post.

Action Limitations

1. Unlike melee actions like swinging a sword or thrusting a spear, ranged actions like firing a gun or shooting a crossbow takes time to aim. After every move action, a character attacking at range needs to use one action to aim. Not doing so will result in penalties to the overall effectiveness of the attack. Skills can be picked up to mitigate this short coming.

2. Another limitation is related to casting spells. Any ability that uses the magic skill is considered a spell and subject to this limitation: casters may not cast magic on posts they use the move action. There are skills to mitigate this limitation.

Who Goes First and Surprise?

Narration generally dictates who goes first in a fight and the narrator will typically let the party know when they are in a combat. However, there are times when the party or an antagonistic force gets the jump on the other. When this happens, a special rule comes into play:

Surprise: characters unaware of the enemy or the direction of attack coming their way are assumed to not be defending against it. In such situations, only certain sense skills or all encompassing defensive abilities used in advance can mitigate this.

Effectiveness System

One of the biggest and most frequent questions revolves around "how much damage can I do", "how much damage can I take", "how much damage can I heal", "damage damage damage". So here it is: the effectiveness system - the system by which we can determine the overall effectiveness of your attack vs another targets defense and discern things like damage (to target and gear) as well as how healing can work.

The Formula:
Grade of Item used in action + Grade of stat associated with action + Grade of ability used for action = base effectiveness

Grade Values:
F = 1
E = 2
D = 3
C = 4
B = 5
A = 6
S = 7


Base Effectiveness:
this is the rating given to your action after crunching the basic inputs of the action you are performing. This number is then modified by a few grades up or down based on narrative situation, special ability effects at play, and any other mechanics being introduced into the system. You cannot use an ability in combat without an item (as it pertains to dealing damage, special effects, or some form of defense). Actions without abilities treat the ability grade as being worth 0 points.

Final Effectiveness:
This is the term for the final rating of the action performed. This is compared to the contesting rating. Largest number wins. Ties cancel each other out. The difference of the 2 numbers turns into grades of success or failure.

Outcomes:
Attacker Wins - each grade of success is a point of damage delivered to the target
Defense Wins - each grade of success is a point of damage delivered to the attacker/attacker's item (narrator decides what's appropriate)
Tie - nothing happens as those involved are repelled by each other and/or locked in stalemate that round


Damage to Character:
A character's health is the numeric value of their Vitality, Speed, or Character Grade based on whether they are wearing Heavy, Light, or No Armor. Referencing the table above shows how many hitpoints each grade of health stat has. (C = 4hp). When a character is reduced to 0 hp they are assumed to be knocked unconscious or otherwise unable to fight on. Any damage beyond 0hp results in character death or character permanent injury as determined by the narrator and type of rp (generally, death does not happen in a standard rp without sufficient warning from the narrator and an understanding from the player of what is at risk). Rp'ers may choose to have characters struggle beyond 0hp, but doing so puts the life of the character at risk.

Damage to Item:
Whether it is a weapon, piece of armor, or other, the item's hp is reduced by the damage dealt. Item hp is equal to grade of item. It's that are damaged have reduced functionality but may still be used in a limited capacity. Item's that have their hp reduced to 0 are destroyed. Items can generally be recovered/repaired/replaced at the end of rp free of cost. Special circumstances may prevent that behavior at narrator discretion. Certain skills and/or artisans in an rp may be able to repair items mid rp.

Knockback:
Whenever damage is dealt, there is the chance something goes flying as a consequence of that extra force.

At narrator discretion and for the purposes of achieving greater anime-esque fight scenes, narrators may choose to convert points of damage into levels on a knockback scale. Grades in a knockback technique can be added to points of damage for total knockback sum. The sum is then compared to table for travel distance.

1 = 1 m/yrd
2 = 2m/yrd
3 = 4m
4 = 8m
5 = 16m

If target hits anything before it stops flying back. It may be eligible for additional point or more of damage at narrator discretion. If the knockback would send target into a free fall or other obvious hazard they wil get a chance to defend/save themselves during their knockback flight if necessary.

Knockback generally sends target flying in the same direction of the connecting hit's flight path.

If narrator and conditions permit, greater distances may be used.

Character Resistance and Healing:
Characters that suffer damage have a step before applying the damage to their health. Damage reducing skills like resistances may take effect now. After reducing damage for any skills or abilities at work, the character is now damaged and in need of a heal. There are various ways of recovering from aches and pains. Regeneration recovers a number of hp per start of character's turn each round. The amount is the numeric value of the skill grade. Healing abilities that use the heal skill heal a number of HP equal to the numeric grade of the skill. However, unlike regeneration, healing is limited in the type of healing it can perform at each grade. In the event a character has suffered a mortal wound or severed appendages, a higher grade heal may be appropriate regardless the amount of health actually lost.

Dueling Stats
Although the main formula for resolving contests between characters works and is consistently used during more rules focused combats, it could be said, some stats are better used for certain actions than others. When wielding a melee weapon or throwing a weapon, the stat used in contest would be Strength. When shooting a ranged weapon or performing an action requiring precise movements and fine tuned changes, then Precision is best. Intelligence is obviously used for magic and psychic abilities, but it is also best for skills that involve Senses and discerning the truth of things. Vitality is best used for resisting bad weather, sickness, and tanking hits. Speed, alternatively, is best for dodging and doing something quickly like a race. The last stat is Character Grade which is best used during social contests as it represents character's presence and charisma to a degree. It is useful for pressing someone into your way of thinking or resisting others attempts to sway your character's own thinking.


Teaming Up
Although this is a roleplay based in fantasy anime with many of its tropes, one character generally can't take on the world. At least at the start, anyway. The reason is teaming up can create insurmountable odds for a single character to overcome. Depending on the skills at play and the narrative situation, teaming up gives mechanical benefits that function as follows:

Base Effectiveness + (number of additional sources performing the same action type) = Team Up Base Effectiveness

Like with normal actions, the Team Up Base Effectiveness is then modified by the skills and situations at play. The skill pool of the Team Up Base is generally much larger, however, it should be noted similar skills should only take their best variations. Example: if 2 characters lend their penetrating skill, only the best penetrating skill will be applied to the ability. They do not stack.

The Base Effectiveness of the Teaming Up formula is based on the highest Base Effectiveness of the actions contributing to the team up.

Skills like [Always Outnumbered] cancel out this feature and cause the actions to be treated individually.


f6a9e90fe736312830f07e7c9304834a9e3dd418-1920x1080.jpg

Combo Bonus
Similar to Team up bonus, Combo bonus is a bonus inherited by combining a character's own actions together for a more powerful action. The strongest action or first action (in the case of defenses) will be used as a base. The other actions in the character's post (up to 2) may then combo with the first. Like Team up Bonus, the best skills are brought forward to make the strongest ability assuming all actions are working toward the same outcome.

Hazards
When there is a fire blazing or a bath of acid bubbling, there is a hazard present. Hazards are danger zones in any scene and deal automatic damage once per round to any character that starts or enters the hazard in the round. Strength of the damage depends on grade of the hazard. Narrators may make certain hazards instant knock out (like falling from sky nation without flight). Hazards affect all targets in the zone, so they can deal direct damage to character as well as their equipment at the same time depending on the nature of the hazard. Narrator discretion on what hazards can be resisted by some things or when the character doesn't immediately suffer damage for standing in a hazard.

Hindrances

Seeing something terrifying and being compelled to flee. Eating a strange plant only to realize it has paralytic properties as your body seizes up. Having your movement restricted because you're tied up in a dark, dank dungeon. The world is filled with many such hindrances. To help players and narrators navigate how to deal with such setbacks, the following list details the most common.

Blind - Creature is unable to see with one or more of its vision types, typically the type granted by its physical sight-granting organ/part.
  • Detriment: Automatically fail any attempt to see. Actions relying on sight receive a minus 7.
  • Prevention: light source (if blinded by darkness) or alternative forms of vision (if blinded by whiteout, sandstorm, etc.)(narrator discretion).
  • Causes: darkness, sandstorms, snowstorms, intense light, blindfold, other (narrator discretion)
Deafened - A deafened creature can’t hear.
  • Detriment: Automatically fail any action that requires hearing
  • Prevention: Resilient [Deafen], hearing protection, barriers (mundane or magical)(narrator discretion)
  • Causes: explosions, shrieks, magic, direct damage to the ear
Frightened - Creature experiences debilitating fear.
  • Detriment: All actions receive minus 2 while the source of fear is within line of sight. The creature can’t willingly move closer to the source of its fear.
  • Prevention: Resilient [Fear], Mind Shield
  • Causes: List of common fears
    • Phobia - This is a very specific source of deep-seated fear that a character may notate on their sheet. When exposed to this source, the character will receive a momentary boon to all actions used to get away from the phobia by the most direct route possible. Specifically, all actions used to move directly away from the phobia and remove obstructions in this direct path receive a plus 1.
Grappled - Creature is seized in a firm grip by another creature.
  • Detriment: A grappled creature’s speed becomes 0, and it can’t benefit from any bonus to its speed. The condition ends if the grappler is incapacitated. The condition also ends if an effect removes the grappled creature from the reach of the grappler or grappling effect.
  • Prevention: Don’t get grappled, Immaterial form, Dodge, Teleport, Overpower grappler
  • Causes: Guards grabbing you, Sea creature coiling you in its tentacle, Snake constricting you
Incapacitated - The body has been rendered powerless by some means.
  • Detriment: An incapacitated creature can’t take actions.
  • Prevention: Resilient [Incapacitated], Magical protections (narrator discretion)
  • Causes: Accompanies other hindrances such as Stunned, Paralyzed, Petrified, and Unconscious.
Invisible - Creature has become perfectly translucent, disappearing entirely from sight.
  • Detriment: An invisible creature is impossible to see without the aid of magic or a special sense. The creature’s location can be detected by any noise it makes or any tracks it leaves and any specific scent the creature may have. Invisible creature gains plus 2 to dodge and attack actions. Attacks against the creature (without proper detection skills) receive minus 7.
  • Prevention: Heightened Sense (Smell/Hear), Sixth Sense (narrator discretion), Affinity magics of revealing, Magical or mundane particulate (such as sand, flour, or dirt)
  • Causes: Potions, Magic
Paralyzed - Creature is partly or wholly incapable of movement.
  • Detriment: Paralyzed creature is incapacitated and can’t move or speak. The creature automatically fails Strength and Speed challenges. Attacks against the creature gain a bonus. Any attack that hits the creature inflicts double damage if the attacker is within 5 feet of the creature.
  • Prevention: Resilient [Paralysis], Change State (narrator discretion)
  • Causes: Various poisons, Critical injury, Magic
Petrified - A petrified creature is transformed, along with any nonmagical object it is wearing or carrying, into a solid inanimate substance (usually stone).
  • Detriment: Weight increases by a factor of ten, and it ceases aging. The creature is incapacitated, can’t move or speak, and is unaware of its surroundings. Attacks against the creature gain plus 2. The creature automatically fails Strength and Speed challenges. While petrified, the creature has Resistance [Mundane] and Resilient [Poison; Disease] (poison or disease already in its system is suspended, not neutralized).
  • Prevention: Resilient [Petrification], Change State (narrator discretion)
  • Causes: Magic, Disease
Poisoned - Creature has been weakened by a toxic substance.

Attacks against the creature have a plus 1 if the attacker is within 5 feet of the creature. Ranged attacks against the creature receive a minus 1.
  • Prevention: Narrator discretion
  • Causes: Knockback, Tripping, Slipping, Falling unconscious
Restrained - Creature is bound magically or physically, restricting its movement.
  • Detriment: A restrained creature’s speed becomes 0, and it can’t benefit from any bonus to its speed. Attacks against the creature have a plus 1, and the creature’s attacks have a minus 1. The creature has a minus 1 on Dodge.
  • Prevention: Resilient [Restrained], Change State (narrator discretion), Lockpicking (narrator discretion)
  • Causes: Physical bindings (ropes, chains, vines, tentacles, etc.), Tangle affinity/tech
Stunned - Creature has received a sudden shock.
  • Detriment: Stunned creature is incapacitated, can’t move, and can speak only falteringly. Attacks against the creature gain plus 1.
  • Prevention: Resilient [Stunned/Surprise], Mind Shield, Averting gaze/Blindness (for visual-based stun)
  • Causes: Critical attack, Disturbing visual
Unconscious - Creature is unaware of surroundings, typically asleep in some form.
  • Detriment: An unconscious creature is incapacitated, can’t move or speak, and is unaware of its surroundings. The creature drops whatever it’s holding and falls prone. Attacks against the creature gain plus 1. Any attack that hits the creature inflicts double damage if the attacker is within 5 feet of the creature.
  • Prevention: Resilient [Incapacitated]
  • Causes: Sleep (mundane and magical), Incapacitate tech/affinity

Standing
How to get everything you wanted and then some

IH is a special type of sandbox where players are free to fill in the details of the world as they explore it. They can make characters that rise to the heights of kings or sink to the depths of crime lords. They can lead armies and take financial institutions to trade war. Sometimes they are the best friend of a [god] or the master of a devil. They can love and have families or dedicate their lives to a craft and own businesses and shops that sell their wares. Some just want pet shoulder dragons while others need huge tree serpent mounts. While the above rules discuss at length how to use points to get what you want, this part of the rules is meant to explain how you can acquire things in the world that don't necessarily come with a point price tag. The [Asset] skill can assist with acquiring some of what will be discussed, but it could never replace something earned and crafted with extensive narrative and care. What's more, using points to acquire things one can get through rp may save time, but it ultimately limits the character's maximum potential.

1*4scy_xyPtcJqQ-w05Khnxw.jpeg

Standing: What is it and Why do we need it?

Standing is a value shared between an rp'er and their characters. It describes the relationship the player and their characters has in the world. Standing is always in relevance to specific persons, places, or things. You could have high standing in relation to a pet dog or low standing when it comes to a royal palace. The higher your standing, the more plausible it is for one of your characters to acquire such a thing or a relationship with it. High standing also indicates the player of the character may be eligible to run rp's with that subject matter in it. A new player to the community generally lacks that standing necessary to run an rp with a king in it. Their character, fresh from isekai, likely has no friends or connections that would make it likely for them to meet the king.

The limitation imposed by standing is necessary. In a world where players can establish lore, you do not want new players with little understanding of the community or the world creating lore that flips everything else on its head or invalidates canon. The idea is the more important things with great influence for the community require greater standing to influence or do rp's about. Meanwhile, simple things like owning a horse which impacts next to no one are fairly simple to acquire and don't require much standing at all.

To better explain what Standing is: it is the number of societal circles a character is in in relation to the thing they want. If anyone can see it, experience it, know about it, own it, or something else that makes the thing common place, then any character and rp'er likely has sufficient standing to have/interact with thing and run rp related to it.

anime-list-header-low.jpg

How do I gain Standing?

As suggested already, Standing is gained through rp. You can generally run rp's or otherwise participate in rp's with the intention of gaining standing in a particular direction. While the types of rp's you run and the number of them will vary based on your goals, the process is generally the same:

  1. Set a goal for the character (ex: be king)
  2. Determine Standing aka Social Circles difference between present character and goal (ex: character is a nobody with nothing. King is top of the nobility faction. The differences in standing are too great to immediately run an rp or set character goal to be king)
  3. If standing is too great, join or start rp to gain standing. (join noble faction) If standing is within one circle in that it is plausible for someone of the character's position to achieve goal, then simply do rp to achieve goal. (rp becoming king)

Depending on goal, this can take many forms and require several rps. Just make sure that in each rp you are in, you are making it clear what your character's goals are. Some of the best ways to gain standing and have it tracked are through titles. [Hero of Xville] and [General Shopkeeper] are simple and generally easily acquired types of titles. They just involve doing things anyone can do if they are in the right place at the right time and/or have the means.

rescue-romance-anime.jpg

Where do I even start?

It's not uncommon for rp'ers to join us and set big goals. Become emperor of the world. Be the most powerful X. Mimic the rise and power of Y anime character. It can easily get overwhelming trying to plot out your course and determine the precise number of rp's and themes you need to explore to achieve your goals. One recommendation is to put your big dreams on hold for the moment and take stock of where you are and what you are.

  • Race
  • Job
  • Skills
  • Abilities
  • Location/home/base/stomping grounds
  • Friends/Contacts
  • Previous titles and achievements

All tell a little bit about the character and put them in the social circles of various end goals. An elf may be in the running to become the next elven leader of their tribe and caretaker of one of the few great life trees. A warrior may be a shoe in for joining the local adventurer's guild or noble's military. Those with magical healing or extensive knowledge skills may thrive in a setting for scribes, priests, or healers. Obviously, a citizen of a local town has a better shot at being mayor of the town than an outsider. Someone with a hero title will gain the attention of more influential characters more easily. Some of this stuff is intuition and gut feel. Some of it is just common sense. Whenever in doubt, feel free to consult with the IH community or Novama.

19e28bd0484bcf25d03a1df71bd723fc.png

Where do I go from here?

Sometimes, you know your goal is still out of reach despite the effort you have put in thus far. You have gathered fame, wealth, resources, materials, skilled individuals, etc and you still feel like there is something more that needs done and are at a loss as to how to get there. At such times, it can be especially important to take stock of character once again, like you did in the beginning. What social circles are they in. Where do they stand and what do they have access to. Even if you don't know how to get closer to your goal, you can at least find areas in which your character might grow. "It would be useful having a friend/contact in this agency. It would be useful having access to this mine of precious crystals. My house needs servants. Perhaps it is time to settle down with spouse and make family." and so it goes on and on. Sometimes you may find you have already met the needs necessary to achieve your goal simply by pursuing several smaller goals in a not so direct fashion. There's always room to grow the character narratively just as there are more points and ways to grow the character mechanically.

Common Goals and Paths for Standing

Goal: Emperor

gain power and influence
perform grand deed
get acknowledged for service with peerage
manage your holdings well and rack up additional achievements
climb the noble ladder
play dance of dynasties for the throne
take kingdom to war - presumably after making the necessary preparations
Win war and become ruler and Emperor of multiple kingdoms after establishing them as an empire
(many more steps and obstacles may stand in your way. Other paths may also lead to the top. Choose the path you like the most or forge the one you need for the circumstances in play)

Goal: Start a Faction/Faith/Business and become its head
declare the existence of the thing you want
climb the ladder of the organization you have declared
take top position with significant influence, allies, resources, and whatever else may be required of your particular organization
(the bigger and/or more influential an organization is, the more steps their may be to climb to the top of it. A multinational corporation may have several location branches to climb to the top and then via among one another for top central positions. meanwhile, a mom and pop shop may just require you to have the skills and tools to finance and stock the shop.)

Goal: Establish the existence of legendary creature/group/or thing
become one of the ones in the know of a such a rare existence: scholar, library enthusiast, friend of a book worm, do 'favors' for the lonely diviner ladies, etc
go on journey to commune with legendary thing
understand the barriers to commune will be nearly as great as the legendary thing, itself.
finally do rp with legendary thing in it or in some way interacting with it to canonize its existence.
(drug fueled hallucinations do not count. Sickness induced delusions do not count. S grade items and creatures probably sit behind A grade obstacles or greater.)

Goal: Start a brand new thing (settlements, nations, religions)
declare the existence of the thing you are making and its various tenants and details.
(one of the most easily accomplished goals, but one of the hardest to get off the ground once started. Character/rp'er must now go about gathering like minded supporters, money, resources, and anything else to build, grown, and maintain this new things following/populace.)

Character Cap and End Game
Character Cap and End Game

anime-girl-angel-wings-heaven-stairs-wallpaper-thumb.jpg
Heaven's Road
Character has been put on notice their time on the world draws short. Whether Isekaied or Native, no mortal holds the attention of the divine indefinitely. After reaching 700 earned points or rping with the character for 2 real life years, and succeeding in one or more Tribulations, a character will experience the following:

1. No longer gain or hold top faction titles like King/pope/ceo/hero/demon lord/etc.
2. No longer gain points and lose access to marketplace and roleplay trading.

Character will then be allowed to persist in the world.
While on heavens road, characters may be scooped at anytime but passed tribulations will need to be re-earned on the following character. New character will not have B grade starting caps. They also get to tip the scales of the world toward progress or stagnation of their choosing and cause time skip as the world adapts to the changes similar to a world event. The character will then be entered into the lore of the world and become a setting NPC depending on the nature of their retirement.

Character's that reach 700 earned points or 2 real life years of play without successfully Tribulating will never be able to pass a Tribulation or reach Heaven's Road, but will also never be capped. The greatest of achievements will forever be beyond their reach.

Characters with 700 earned points or 2 real life years of play may choose to reincarnate as themselves and are not forced to play a new character upon retirement but will lose any non-paid for titles/items/assets (will impact ending narration for character).
