StyleEdit

Take the following exaples as an unoffical shorthand on how to write abilities in a short form.
Abilities are written here in the form of Ability Usage [Action Points|Attack Style|Ability Modifier] or
Ability XX [ AP|AS|AM ]
So PingPong Bolt IV [2|los 10|Pr 10*] is an ability that takes 2 AP, and can attack at a range of 10, but can not hit behind or through obsticals. It also has a Prime to hit of a d10*, with a re-roll if 10 is rolled.
And Deathstick[4|Auto] is an ability that takes 4 AP to use, is by default melee, and automatically hits. The roman numerals after the name state how often that ability can be used, in it's particular usage category. In this case, it can be used 4 times per either day, encounter or turn, depending on if it is a daily, encounter, or at-will ability.

ClassificationsEdit

There are many ways that abilities can be used. Some are combat, some are utility, and all need to be trained to unlock their full potential.

Attack ShapeEdit

The Attack Shape is a way of describing what kind of area an ability uses. Should be self-explanitory.

MeleeEdit

The defualt attack of any ability[AP] that attacks an adjacent square.

RangedEdit

An ability[los x] (line of sight) fired in a direction at a range, hitting the first target in line. Obstacles block.

ArtilleryEdit

An ability[nlos x] (not line of sight) fired in a direction at range, hitting aimed at target, over or though any obstacles.

BeamEdit

An ability[bm x] fired in a direction at range, hitting all targets and stopping at range or impenetrable obstical.

BurstEdit

Ability[AP|br x]
Note: THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM DND 4th, AND MAY BE DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IS USED IN GAME.
An ability[br x] where x is the radius of the burst. Ie, Pulse[AP|br 3] causes a 3 by 3 square of damge from attacker. The center square is *not* affected in this attack.

BlastEdit

Ability[AP|br x|los x]
Note: THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM DND 4th, AND MAY BE DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IS USED IN GAME.
A Burst at range, ie, Oil Flask[AP|br 3|los 5] Causes a 3*3 square of damge at a range of 5. The center square *is* affected in this attack.

Close BlastEdit

BlastburstUntitled

Blast vs. Close Burst vs. Close Blast

Ability[AP|br x|close]
The same as a normal Blast, except that one of the edge squares of the blast has to be adjacent to one of the squares of the attacker.

WallEdit

The attack creates a wall, which fills a specified number of contiguous squares within range, starting from an origin square. Each square of the wall must share a side with at least one other square of the wall, but a square can share no more than two sides with other squares in the wall.

Ability ModifiersEdit

The various ways abilities are different from the norm. Which is like everything, dude.

Target StyleEdit

The method with which an ability targets.
To HitEdit
Default attack. Attacker is required to roll a d20 plus any modifiers to hit either the AC or MC
SelfEdit
See Automatic Hit.
Coup de GraceEdit
An attack vs a fallen foe. Generally consider a critical, as long as a successful attack is made. +? vs AC, +? vs MC.
Automatic HitEdit
Ability[AP|Auto]
Target is automatically hit, regardless of AC/MC
Prime NumberEdit
Ability[AP|Pr x]
Target is automatically hit if dice value rolled is prime. Progression of 2d20 down to d4*. d[x]* is re-rolled if the highest value is struck.

Automatic MissEdit
The Ability never hits. Maybe negative consequences? Maybe FULL LIFE CONSEQUENCES.

AugmentableEdit

Ability[AP|Aug Stat]
The Ability is augmentable by a certain stat or charachteristic. It's overpowering, but it's not OVER 9000!!!

HealingEdit

Ability[AP|Heal]
The Ability is a healing ability, that can restore hitpoints.

CriticalEdit

The normal damage roll is taken at maximum, and/or anything from an extra number of damage rolls, to additional effects.

ChainEdit

Any ability that can move to secondary targets from the first.

SustainedEdit

Ability[AP|s x]
Any ability that can be used over multiple turns, and uses x AP per round.
Ie: Chilling Glare[10|s 3] requires 10 AP to use, and 3 for every turn that it remains in effect.
Ie: Boast[15|s 0] requires 15 AP to use, and none to sustain. Can be ended at any time.
Ie: Charging[0|s x] requires 0 AP to use, but requires x AP to use per round. This is a given mechanic for a defualt ability, that allows people to charge attacks which required more than one turns use of AP, not something that changes anything.

MundaneEdit

Any ability which is not magical in nature, and often deals direct physical damage. Not to be confused with magically boosted mundane abilities.

Poor AccuracyEdit

Why does the barrel have a curve in it?

Sometimes things are made poorly, or are not well thought out, or are bought from the cheapest bidder. This is one of those items. Negatives to hit ranged.

Poor VisibilityEdit

It's got an integrated HUD and a video monitor on the inside of the helmet. Only downside is that it's about 10 degrees off center and has a 2 second lag...

Negatives to hit ranged and visibility.

MagicalEdit

ElementalEdit

See: Elements

SummonEdit

SheathEdit

A slight pulse of energy drops over the recipient, causing effects if contact is made. Generally causes a +1 damage of elemental type to whatever hits you or you hit. So far seen to last will rounds.

VorpalEdit

Deadly weapon. Most with this attribute kill on contact. Death's Scythe in particular is known to be able to reap even Gods.
