Classes


There are a total of 6 classes on the forum:


Each Specialty classifies a character's combat style. Warriors revolve around melee weapons, Assassins are based around mid-range and gimmick weapons, Rangers are based around long-ranged tools, Magicians are  magic-casters, and Tamers raise and train beasts to fight for them, and Manipulators use strange and secret techniques to alter their bodies for use in battle.

Upon creation a character has a "Primary" class. A Secondary Class can be trained after reaching B-Rank by writing up 2,000 words. Tertiary Classes can only be received through events and special shops.

There are several general rules revolving around Classes:

  • A Class CANNOT outrank a character. Eg. A C-Rank character is incapable of upgrading a Warrior class to B-Tier.
  • Primary Classes can be equal to a character's rank. Secondary Classes can only be a rank below at the most, and Tertiary Classes must be two ranks below that of a Character's.
  • When your character Ranks up you must still upgrade their Class separately. (Training requirements are listed below.) Eg. If a character is of C-Rank, and he only has a Warrior class of D-Tier, he cannot register abilities as if he had C-tier Warrior until he upgrades that Class to C-Tier as well.
  • Items pertaining to Secondary and Tertiary Classes do not come for free and must be purchased. Eg. A character with a Primary Class of Magician can register a free staff to begin with. If they obtain Warrior as their Secondary they do not receive a starter melee weapon for free, and must purchase it instead.


Each class is then divided into further tiers. There are a total of five tiers, just like the character ranks.

Training Classes

Just like how you train abilities, you can train and rank up your classes via word counts. When training Classes, it should be trained over a period of time IC. While it is fine to learn and train an ability in one day, Class Training should be done over the course of many days IC to better show the progression of your character. A week or two has generally been accepted up to this point in time.

The required amount of words to train Classes are as follows:
D-Tier to C-Tier: 500 Words
C-Tier to B-Tier: 1000 Words
B-Tier to A-Tier: 2000 Words
A-Tier to Ω-Tier: 3000 Words

Training a Secondary or Tertiary Class: 2000 words to initially obtain the new class. After this, it will be D-tier. Then you can follow the normal word counts for Class training listed above.

You must clearly state where the wordcount for your training begins and ends. You may not merge word counts for training other abilities or classes.

Warrior


Warrior is a class which revolves around the usage of melee weapons and martial techniques. This can include anything from martial arts and fighting styles to blades, axes, and even war-hammers. This class is most compatible with Djinn Equips as their abilities can often be applied to the djinn's weapon.

D-Tier: Can use C-Tier and below techniques. May bring up to 2 weapons/shields into a thread.

C-Tier: Can use B-Tier and below techniques. May bring up to 3 weapons/shields into a thread.

B-Tier: Can use A-Tier and below techniques. At this tier users can begin using Magoi Manipulation to enhance their abilities. A single Magoi Manipulation technique can be learned. May bring up to 3 weapons/shields into a thread.

A-Tier: Can use A-Tier and below techniques. May bring up to 3 weapons/shields into a thread. A total of 3 techniques can involve Magoi Manipulation.

Ω-Tier: A total of 6 techniques can involve Magoi Manipulation. May bring up to 4 weapons/shields into a thread.

Parrying

Parrying is one of the ways a Strength specialization character uses a defensive technique. Unlike a Magician's Borg, which blocks/absorbs/dissolves an attack, the Warrior’s defensive technique ‘parry’ is executed by swatting away or redirecting a technique. Any given attack can only be redirected away from the Warrior who is using the ‘parry’ technique. This allows a Warrior to avoid the effects of attacks that require direct impact such as physical blows, magoi manipulation, or spells and projectiles that trigger an AoE on impact.

Magoi Manipulation


Magoi Manipulation is the ability for a Warrior to control and manipulate the magoi within his/her body. This allows them to coat themselves or their weapons in magoi and send it into a struck opponent's body to deal damage or interfere with their own magoi flow. There are a few things to note about Magoi Manipulation:

  • Using Magoi Manipulation increases the strength of an ability by one tier capping at A-tier. So a C-tier magoi manipulation attack would deal B-tier damage. A D-tier magoi manipulation defense would block up to C-tier. But an A-tier ability only lets you do more complex/advanced things with magoi manipulation and will not buff the effectiveness beyond A-tier. This bonus is negated if your attack or the enemy attack is parried.
  • A Magoi Manipulation attack must land a direct hit to send magoi into an opponent to damage them physically. This will work even if they block the attack, however if your attack is parried this effect will not occur.
  • Coating a weapon with magoi manipulation protects it from being influenced by magic. For example, a djinn equip with the passive magic to melt through anything will be unable to apply this effect to your weapon if you coat it in magoi.
  • Magoi may not be expelled away from the body without a physical catalyst. Ex. First Harpoon can only be thrown when used on a weapon. If it is used bare handed, the user must hit the target directly in melee range.



Important notes about the Warrior Class:

  • Warrior abilities are specific techniques that have been trained and practiced many times over. They can't be so vague that they fit any situation and use any limb. Simply saying that you hit the opponent with your arms or legs and deal a certain amount of damage is not satisfactory. A proper strength ability description must include a type of attack being performed(punch, kick, throw, etc.) and the manner in which it is being executed(a vertical kick, a punch to the gut, a horizontal hammer fist, etc.)

Ammunition

Outside of actual abilities which cost Magoi or Stamina, Rangers and Assassins have the ability to fire off ranged attacks without paying a cost. There are several things to note about regular pieces of ammunition:

  • You have a limited amount depending on your Class rank.
  • Ammunition cannot have any other uses other than applying simple damage. Ex.: No trapping, smoke bombs, etc.
  • After your ammo stock is depleted in your topic, you cannot use anymore ammunition for the rest of that topic. Ammunition replenishes once you enter a new topic.
  • Ammunition varies depending on the weapon type. Bows shoot arrows. Crossbows shoot bolts. Slings throw rocks, etc.
  • Assassin ammunition is strictly thrown weapons and only has mid range.

Magician's Constitution - All Magicians have initially weak bodies. They may not obtain Traits that increase physical strength or speed unless they have a Secondary Class.

Borg - The borg is a protective barrier formed by the rukh in order to defend a magician against harm with ill intent. The borg will activate on its own, but can also be activated and controlled at will or even suppressed to prevent its activation. Each magician will receive the basic borg ability which ranks up as their Class does. It is possible to create borg spells to detect ill intent in others or concentrate the borg to amplify its defensive abilities. it is even possible to use the borg offensively. However, these are high level spells and require a magician be at least A-tier to use.

Basic Borg Ability:

Code:

[b]Tier:[/b] D-Ω
[b]Class:[/b] Magician
[b]Type:[/b] Defensive

*Important Note - A magician's borg will never kill them due to magoi exhaustion. If a magician does not have enough magoi to maintain the borg, it will not form.

*Important Note - As a magician you may keep up to 3 staff/wands in your vault. However, you can only use one in any given thread.

*Important Note* - Once a magician reached C-tier, they may begin registering combination magic spells at this time.

Beast Tamer

Beast Tamer is a class which revolves around the taming and/or befriending of beasts. These creatures, like players, do not have "health" and take damage logically. A reasonably lethal wound is required to kill one. A Beast Tamer may own an unlimited number of beasts. However, the number of beasts they can take into a thread is limited by their tier.

D-Tier: Can use beasts whose total tier is equal to one D-Tier in each thread. Beasts can register C-Tier and below techniques.

C-Tier: Can use beasts whose total tier is equal to C-tier in each thread. Beasts can register B-Tier and below techniques.

B-Tier:  Can use beasts whose total tier is equal to B-tier in each thread. Beasts can register A-Tier and below techniques.

A-Tier:  Can use beasts whose total tier is equal to A-tier in each thread. Beasts can register A-Tier and below techniques. At this tier you may possess up to 1 A-tier Legend Beast.

Ω-Tier:  Can use beasts whose total tier is equal to Ω-tier in each thread. Beasts can register A-Tier and below techniques. At this tier you may possess up to 2 A-tier Legend Beasts. Or a single Ω-tier Legend Beast.

Beast Abilities

Unlike people who specialize in other areas and use their own abilities, Beast Tamers are practically defenseless on their own. All of their abilities and attacks come from and are produced by their beasts. There are several things to note about Beast Abilities:

  • These abilities take up stamina points from the owner, and beasts don't have stamina limits of their own.
  • Ability slots are spread throughout all of your beasts. Just because you have multiple beasts, you don't have any more ability slots than the average person.
  • The type of beast you have determines what kind of abilities they can use. Ex. A normal tiger cannot use wings to fly, or shoot its claws out as a ranged attack unless it has unique biology and traits that allow it to do so.
  • All beast deal basic attack damage equal to their own tier.


Beast Traits


Beasts possess more traits than people which allows them to have various physiological functions to aid them and their tamers in battle. The number of Trait Points available to beasts is listed below.

D-Tier: 3 Trait Points
C-Tier: 5 Trait Points
B-Tier: 10 Trait Points
A-Tier: 15 Trait Points
Ω-tier: 20 Trait Points


Types of Beasts:


Normal: These beasts are straightforward stand alone creatures. Each one possesses unique traits and powerful attacks that they use by themselves. Examples would be a tiger that can breath flames.

Swarm: These beasts only count as a single "beast" as far as the system is concerned, however, they are actually groups of smaller beasts acting together. Swarm beasts possess half(rounded up) the trait points of other beasts of the same tier and each individual creature in the swarm can only deal D-tier damage. However, they make up for this weakness by being numerous. Examples would be a small army of bees or a colony of rodents.

Swarm beasts are actual swarms, although the numbers would drop significantly if it was a "swarm" of birds or rats as they are much larger creatures. A D-tier rat swarm would probably get half a dozen rats. But if they are small like insects, a D-tier swarm would have dozens nearing a hundred with numbers growing out from there.

Parasite/Symbiote: These beasts live inside of hosts such as the Beast Tamer or another beast. They are unable to perform basic attacks and offensive abilities are performed by the host, however, they also can't be damaged and only die if their host dies. Their purpose is to support their host. However, each Parasite/Symbiote beast must come with a drawback equal in severity to their rank. Examples would be a worm that causes anemia in exchange for poison immunity or an insect that devours internal organs in exchange for producing hormones that increase physical capabilities.

Parasites / Symbiotes are not allowed to register offensive techniques and are purely defensive or supplementary.

Beast Size and Speed

There are no set limits for the size and speed of beasts. Each beast will be considered with balance in mind. So larger beasts will likely be slower and faster beasts will likely be smaller. The higher tier the beast, the more leeway you will have in balancing its speed vs its size.

Training Beasts

Unlike weapons and staffs, Beasts are living creatures. So, instead of purchasing higher-tiered beasts, a tamer can instead train them into higher tiers. The process for training beasts is the exact same as training abilities, including the word-counts. When training a beast to a higher tier, the focus should be similar to Class training and focus on the beast gaining power, whether that is through strength, utility, or awakening passives.

D-Tier to C-Tier: 500 words
C-Tier to B-Tier: 1000 words
B-Tier to A-tier: 1500 words
A-tier to Ω-tier: 2000 words

Legend Beasts

"Legend Beasts" are creatures that are typically thought of to be mythical. This can include anything along the line of dragons, phoenixes, and any otherworldly creatures. There are several things to note about these special beasts:

  • These beasts gain an additional free Ω-tier trait that is created by staff with player input.
  • All Legend Beasts must be at least A-Tier.

Body Manipulators


Body Manipulator is a class which revolves around the manipulation of one’s own body in battle. Throught secret training techniques, they have gained the ability to alter their bodies in unnatural ways.

D-Tier: Can manipulate a single limb and use C-Tier and below techniques.

C-Tier: Can manipulate two limbs and use B-Tier and below techniques.

B-Tier: Can manipulate three limbs and use A-Tier and below techniques.

  • Body Manipulation abilities cannot be used to create extra “appendages” meaning you cannot make separate wings, however you could make wing like flaps coming from your arms.
  • Body Manipulators are incapable of healing themselves. However, they can mitigate damage by using abilities to stop bleeding, or reattach a severed limb if they can recover it.
  • The torso and head are considered "limbs" for Manipulators.
