I welcome any input. What is your idea?

Also, I'm going to work on a list of species and powers tomorrow. But shapeshifter can turn into any animal they've "acquired" (if you remember the Animorphs books or TV series, that's where I'm basing them off, only it's genetic not a "gift from aliens"). I'm also considering limit the number of shifts you can have at once.

Lol Animorphs was exactly where my mind was.  I dont know if you are familiar with the Kate Daniels series. If not quick summary:  in the 90s Magic returned to the world and devastated it.  Magic creatures came out of the shadows and now live out in the world.  Magic flares up in shifts now, when its up modern tech does not function (not even guns) but everyone's adapted to other types of tech and weapons (swords mostly).  Kate Daniels is sword wielding merc who (of course) is more than she seems.  Good series I highly recommend.  Were animals feature heavily in it as Kate is tied to The Pack.  They have everything from werewolves to a werebadger.  The Beast Lord  is a were-lion.  But to the idea.  the were-animals have 2 forms.  Beast form which is just that, the form of what ever animal they are..only slightly bigger.  Not Twilight size wolves, but still much bigger than a normal wolf (or other animal).  Then the have their Warrior form.  its the half human-animal form.  They hold much power in this form but only the most experienced can achieve it and even then only for short amounts of time as too long in it and they go "loup"...basically lose any humanity.   Much like in the Star Wars rpg not everyone is going to be a Darth or a Master right off...only the GM and players who have been here a while could achieve the half-human form...but at a cost so it can't just be used willy nilly

I was actually thinking of something like that. Making it an emergency form that no one likes to use, because it's impossible to control yourself from going berserk and killing literally everything. So much so most weres haven't even gone there once and many never will in their lifetime. It may even be banned entirely in certain packs....

That's my next question. How should we handle the Alpha positions? Each pack will have two, one male and one female(just like RL wolf packs) who are the "breeding pair" (again like RL packs) meaning only they can turn others by biting(the rest of us would have to make werewolves the "old fashioned" way).

Do we NPC them or should they be players?

I'll admit, this RPG idea is growing on me. Depending on what the story ends up being about, I may decide to play. I still really want to play a fairy, but Tepes mentioned Were-badgers, and now I really wanna be a were-wolverine or were-badger. Thanks Tepes. Roll Eyes Tongue

Yeah sure. If you want, or just be a shifter and turn into a snake as your "go to." Remember, vampires and fairies aren't going to be effected by venom. Also wolves and big cats have been known to eat snakes, so would be somewhat effective at killing them.

Now I'm waiting for someone to ask to be something ridiculous, like a weregerbil. Sure, but that's about the most useless power ever. Though just for laughs we could make the gerbil super powerful with no in game equal. Cheesy

I'm not planning on limiting the amount of were species that are possible. I WILL say this though, werewolves are BY FAR the most common, followed fairly closely by werecats. Everything else is pretty rare. And generally were are from their animals natural habitat, so I do ask that we stick to animals we have here in the US, where the story is based. So if you're a werecat, it's most likely to be a mountain lion, possibly a Jaguar. If you are a species who doesn't wish to be discovered, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to move to an area that your animal isn't native to. People will start asking questions if, say, an elephant is spotted in rural Ohio... a wolf or mountain lion, no one will ask too many questions.

understandable. I think I'll probably do a mountain lion

another thing, when will the character sheet be posted? I'd like to get started on my character soon(ish)

There needs to be a minimum of 5 players confirmed for this game, and I need to be given an outline of the world/ game scenario before I will give it the go ahead. That was a condition of starting it up. THEN a character sheet can be developed. So far this game doesn't have the minimum number of confirmed players. There's a few 'yes'es, and a few 'maybe's.

I'm sure you can work out a pile of details for your character if you wish without needing the sheet, then when the character sheet template is released you can make it fit to the template.
