Thread Item requests

Post by Fusilliban » Sun Jul 29, 2018 7:39 pm

Hi folks,

When you're ready to commit to a Thread Item request, please add a post in this thread to that effect. Here's a nice template:

Code: Select all

Character Name:
Character forum thread link:
Points spent on item tier (10/20/30):
Points spent on random upgrade chance (0-8):
Points spent on item choice (0-8):
If 2 points spent on item choice select 1 of {Weapon, Armor, Worn, Misc Gear}:
OR
If 4 points spent on item choice: select 1 of {1h Melee Weapon, 2h Melee Weapon, Thrown Weapon, Missile Weapon, Spellcasting "weapon", Light Armor, Heavy Armor, Shield, Living Armor, Worn (Combat), Worn (Social), Worn (Spellcasting), Worn (Utility), Instrument, Misc (Social), Misc (Spellcasting), Misc (Utility)}:
OR
If 6 or 8 points spent on item choice, select exact base item:
If 8 points spent on item choice, select 1 requested power:

Total TIPs spent: 
Depending on how many points you spent on random upgrade chance, that chance is:
0 TIP -> 00%
2 TIP -> 10%
4 TIP -> 25%
6 TIP -> 45%
8 TIP -> 70%

If you spend 0 points on item choice, the item you receive is guaranteed to be usable by your character, but not guaranteed to be useful. An Ork Sky Raider may get a Windling-sized weapon that gives Spellcasting bonuses. The bargain bin is fun!
If you spend 2 points on item choice, the item you receive will be physically useable *and appropriate*. The Ork Sky Raider would get an Ork-sized weapon, but it might still give Spellcasting bonuses.
If 4 points, the item will be sized well and also be useful for your character's discipline. The Ork Sky Raider might get an item that gave bonuses to Air Sailing or Second Weapon.
If 6 points, the item will be sized well, and will physically be the exact item you choose. It will also be useful for your character's build/habits/etc. If the Ork Sky Raider eschewed actual use of airships, or was a single-weapon character, they would get things more useful than Air Sailing or Second Weapon.
If 8 points, all the above applies, and you may request 1 specific power. The requested power must be one that would be appropriate for an un-upgraded-tier item - i.e, your character's current tier.

If you want to kick ideas around but not make a formal request, Discord is good for that. I'm not always around and don't always have full availability for complicated discussions, but we'll see what we can do. If you know in advance you're going to want a thread item with highly unusual/custom/etc powers, giving me some advance warning of the vague flavor of what you want may give the idea longer to cook in the back of my head, which may be helpful.

When you've posted here, I'll go into the Roll20 table and roll for your upgrade chance. Once I've rolled, your request is final. It may take me some time to put all the finishing touches on the item.

Upgrades are now an option as well. For upgrades, please use this form:

Code: Select all

Character Name:
Character forum thread link:
Name of item: 
Current tier of item:
Points spent on upgrade: 10
Requested new power:
Requesting a new power costs an additional 8 points for Journeyman items, 12 for Warden items, 16 for Master items.

Tiers have been rolled for all these items and item creation is in-process.

Most (all?) of you have been eligible for a request for over a month. In those cases I'm inclined to air-drop the items directly into your character's inventories and say they showed up during your last adventure, or some other explanation that doesn't force you to wait for one more adventure before you can start toying with them.

All but one of these are done, pending review from other staff (because I'm new at this). Items will be delivered through adventures this week or air-dropped directly into people's inventories, as seems appropriate. (Ursula's item isn't done yet.)

Congratulations to BattleChad, winner of this round's only tier upgrade. Yay, random numbers!
