Just replied to that through PM

Well, you could pick some kind of danger sense as trait, but future sight might be a little bit tricky. (possible though. I could... "show" you things which are near-certain to happen. But trust me when I say it's a trait you likely won't want to pick.)

But both of those things would take more then 1 point: so you'd need a handicap of sorts as well.

I was thinking more along the lines of Hears being very quiet, not speaking much (unless he's talking to his voices), and being polite, while the Voice that comes out in fights is loud, vocal, and very rude/antagonistic (basically he taunts/insults his foes and can get pretty violent/bloodthristy).

As for the +1 trait point, that can go into HP.

Not it! :lol: :P

Hmmmm.......I don't really see any of us as being even remotely leaderish :-?

If I had to pick, I'd go for Burns with Cut and Paste, but that's a pretty tentative vote.......

Heh, that was cutting it close.

It seems kind of inappropriate to thank anyone for this, since it was ultimately the dice's doing, but I'm grateful all the same. I'll try and figure out a good trait for Born that isn't just +1 ATT or something. Maybe some conditional thing that has to do with how he reacts to random events?

And yeah, toning it down is fine. What's your stance on getting haunted?

A one time option to Change traits later? I'll hold you to that...

I'll edit it later today. Got too much stuff on my hands to do it now...

Okay weird-ass ideas:

Butterfly Effect: If Born's ranged attack misses entirely, there's a slight chance of it causing a chain reaction that damages the target anyway.
(Or alternatively, if I try to fire at an inanimate object and cause a chain reaction, there's an improved chance of it working.)

Quick Getaway: Born gets improved rolls when climbing to some hard-to-reach place. Good for sniping; running the hell away.

(I might edit in more ideas later.)

It'd be one of these, not all of 'em, and I have no preference which. Do any look good?

Butterfly effect: Fun effect. I'd allow it, and even give it a 50% chance. Buuut, it probally won't be that of an useful feat, as there is usually seen a 100% hit rate.

Quick getaway: this would also work for 1 trait point.

Allright, Burns Traits (until further notice at least):

Danger sense: Can sense when danger is about to happen or if hostility is near. 3 points

Anthropophobia: When nearby two or more humanoids (excluding his teammates), Cut-and-paste receives an 1 ATT/DEF penalty. (He also receives an additional -1 ATT/DEF for each 5 more persons, though it is capped at three negative ATT/DEF) 2 points.

I got in! :D

Traits: i'd like to remove the strength penalty.

Questions: Does my prohibition on wielding melee weapons extend to ranged weapons? and does my regular attack bonus apply to magical attacks?

and for leadership... none of us are really cut out for leadership, but if i had to choose, i'd choose Cut and Paste.

Hmm, hadn't thought of that yes. Let's say it doesn't, and you still can wield ranged weapons. You wouldn't be an expert with it, but you know what I mean.

Also, ranged damage does stack with base ATT, but magic does not. So yeah, ordinary attack is pretty much obsolete for you, unless you use a ranged weapon.

Cut and Paste is a fortune teller, so I can see how he'd make a good leader. I'd say let's do it.

Heh, that's a shame. Hold on one sec...

Butterfly Effect: In the event of a critical hit on a ranged attack, Born will miss his target entirely. The arrow will cause a chain reaction that damages multiple enemies with maximum damage to the surrounding area.

e.g. An arrow misses, bounces off a rock and strikes an ally's sword, creating a shower of sparks that sets a dead tree on fire. The burning tree falls on the enemies.

How about: Butterfly effect: each shot fired has a small chance of entirely missing. If it misses, it somehow still manages to deal damage to multiple enemies, through the power of shenanigans.

... I should count a trait as this for two points, but hey. Shenanigans.

Nah, I've got nothing particularly creative. I'll just take a -1 to HP to make up for Butterfly Effect.

So my final traits are...

Weirdness Magnet: Weird, improbable and sometimes dangerous coincidences have a way of hunting down and singling out Born and Raised. He hasn’t noticed the pattern. +0

Butterfly Effect: Each shot fired has a small chance of entirely missing. If it misses, it somehow still manages to deal damage to multiple enemies, through the power of shenanigans. +2
