Title: Unit 52 [OOC Thread]
Post by: Narric on February 13, 2014, 07:56:51 pm
Looking for 4 to 6 players for a Sci-fi RP.

Setting:
Welcome to the metropolitan world Granixa.
It acts as a port for the trade routes that pass through the system. Its high traffic makes policing the populace difficult, and undeclared Weapons and equipment results in many Law enforcement deaths, both on and off duty.
A new arm of the Police was created, made up of a hundred individual units that act independently, and policing their own sectors. You are Unit 52, of Sector 52.

A group of heretics will be meeting at sunset.




Still tweaking the rules, but I think I have enough for the first run through. I'm going for a Mission by Mission style. I currently have two and a half missions written already, but my impatience is getting on my nerves :P

If people are interested, I'll post up the rules and character creation stuff.

Character Creation

Each character starts with the following stats:
Melee Skill: 5
Range Skill: 5
Strength: 5
Resilience: 5
Mental: 5

You may dudeuct one point from each stats and relocate it to another stat. No stat may go below 4. In addition, you have 5pts to allocate to your stats.

All members are equipped with:
- a Combat Shotgun
- & a Combat Blade

Armour is taken into consideration in the Resilience stat.

Here is how Combat will work. I think I got the confusionand bugs out, but do point out if I'm wrong. It'll be three rounds rapid, so hopefully we'll avoid the failure of my previous RP :P

[spoiler]Melee & Ranged attacks rolled on a D12, with the score required for a hit being 12 minus the character Skill. Ranged attack may have additional hit modifiers

Damage for both combat and shooting is the Strength of the hit (either character or weapon) +D6 minus the targets’ Resilience. If the total is less than 1, no serious damage is inflicted, and the target shrugs off the blow. A natural 6 means it is a fatal hit, and the target is killed or at least severely injured, and cannot fight anymore.

Enemy forces will regularly be able to take cover from attacks at range and it is advised the Player Characters do the same. They must pass a Cover test using their Mental characteristic on a D6.

The “Mental” characterstic is also used to activate and de-activate equipment, and for any test of the mind, such as code breaking, or Interrogation. You may also take a Mental test to aim at a specific part of a Target. A failed Mental test means the shot will miss entirely, while a pass means your shot will only hit the limb chosen. Any Mental test that is not for Cover, is rolled on a D10, and must be below the Characters’ Mental stat.

Activation Tests are used to see if the character activates their weapon to use it. If the test is failed, and they still want to use it, they must test again. Weapons are easily Deactivated through quick-kill switches, so do not require a test to deactivate.
That said, you should still take the time to deactivate your gear. Weapons that are not activated cannot be fired. A weapon that is active but not used builds up excess energy that can harm the equipped character. On a D12 the GM tries to roll under the number of rounds (Player Posts and Combat Rounds)  the weapon has remained active and unused. If it releases the energy, the strength of the hit is equal to the number of turns it was active for.

When in combat, you may swap weapons. This however takes up a full round of combat, and does not deactivate active weaponry.
[/spoiler]

And here are the weapons I currently have in mind that will feature in this RP :P except one. That one is just too OP.

Post by: Narric on February 13, 2014, 08:34:15 pm
There will be an option for a Squad Leader and a Special Weapons guy, but I'm going to wait until we have at least four people in ;)

I'll go update the OP with the rules and Character Creation Stuff.



Character Listing:
WaaaghPower - Knight
[spoiler]Andrew Knightley
Shooting 4
Melee 5
Strength 5
Resilience 12
Mental 4

Andy is... A big guy. A really, really big guy. At just above seven feet, and almost 350 pounds, very few people can say they tower over him. He makes his money as a boxer in various local circuits, and usually wins by merely outlasting his opponents. For him, fighting as an enforcer was merely a way to make more money doing the same thing.
(For reference, he looks something like Dalip Singh.)
[/spoiler]

TMTC-Jayne - King
[spoiler]Gary King

Melee Skill: 4
Range Skill: 10
Strength: 4
Resilience: 5
Mental: 7

Gary is an aging chap who is rapidly approaching 40. This distresses him somewhat. He dreams of great accomplishment and acts somewhat impulsively. Once he sets his mind on a goal, he will do anything to complete it, even at great personal risk and probably against better judgement, which he lacks. . .[/spoiler]

Pilum - Jeff
[spoiler]Jeff Bibby

Melee: 6
Shooting: 7
Strength: 5
Resilience: 5
Mental: 7[/spoiler]

Railgun Convention - Jax
[spoiler]Jack X. Mason

Melee: 4
Shooting: 7
Strength: 5
Resilience: 7
Mental: 7

pretty solid sort of guy. He's played the part of cynical sergeant for the better part of a decade. He knows his way around most mission sites by experience - they all look the same after this long - and he's had plenty of time to get acquainted with his equipment. He's acted as mentor to three recruits so far, and none of them have died yet, which he considers a great success.[/spoiler]

Mabbz - Ren
[spoiler]Name: Saracen Rue

Melee: 6
Shooting: 5
Strength: 6
Resilience: 5
Mental: 8

Saracen Rue is a fairly likable guy, and competent in combat and always calm and rational. His main skill appears to be an uncanny ability to know something relevant to whatever situation he finds himself in. Whether it's engine repair, interrogation, first aid or the fact that someone's sneaking up behind him with a handgun, he usually has some idea about it.[/spoiler]

Tybalt Defet - Wolf
[spoiler]Black Wolf

Melee: 4
Ranged: 7
Strenght: 6
Resilience: 5
Mental: 8

Black Wolf was a no nonsense Sergeant, a veteran of more heists, murders, gang fights and car chases then he cares to remember. When the hundred units were announced, he knew he shouldn't volunteer, being one of the few members on the force getting close to retirement age but he wanted to be part of the action.[/spoiler]

Dragon-DAC - Ace
[spoiler]Richard Schweickert

Melee: 8
Range: 4
Strength: 5
Resilience: 6
Mental: 7

Richard got his start as an undercover narcotics agent, often being adept with sneaking and bluffing. Thankfully these are habits that tend to endear him to mob bosses and the like, as well as his ability to 'work with his hands' so to speak, much to their eventual detriment.

Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Waaaghpower on February 13, 2014, 09:08:40 pm
I'm definitely be interested.
Does a natural 6 roll still kill, even if your resilience and armor is equal or greater than the weapon's maximum damage? (Also, how do you count wounds?)

Also, how come a shotgun decreases your accuracy?

I think I'll play as a heavy tank.
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Narric on February 13, 2014, 09:13:30 pm
Natural Six is an instantly kill to enemy NPCs. Vs PCs, It just does max damage ;)

As for player HP. I'm thinking Resilience plus the second Max stat, and the total Doubled. I reckon thats somewhere between 20 to 30 HP per player?

Lower Accuracy ont he weapons is mostly to take into account how a real weapon would act (shots going wide, Shotgun spraying rather than aving bullets) or in the case of the Spec Weapons, just generally being slightly unpredictable when used. Flamers get a bonus due to them just filling the room with holy hellfire death :P

Make sense?
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Waaaghpower on February 13, 2014, 09:17:40 pm
Well, okay, but how come the scattershot weapon (With a hit area of about a foot in radius) is less accurate than most other weapons, regardless of range?
I'm also tempted to go with this as my character's build...
Melee 4
Range 4
Strength 4
Endurance 14
Mental 4

Then I'll invest in some good armor...

Edit: Food for thought... Any completely minmaxed stat (Such as mine) will have 36 wounds, even if you invest entirely in Mental...
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Narric on February 13, 2014, 09:21:11 pm
Its Resilience, not Endurance, and it accounts for armour also. :P

I think you're going to need a Combat Herring if you're serious about using that for a character :P

So a high Resilience *includes* my gear in the base stat? What happens if I lose my armor, or get better gear?
(What's a Combat Herring?)
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Narric on February 13, 2014, 09:28:55 pm
You're wearing a uniform, that is only slightly individualized compared to your squad-mates, and better gear will probably just be a Battleshield:

Melee Skill: 4

And can I drop my combat shotgun for the assault rifle, and take the melta gun as a special weapon?
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Waaaghpower on February 13, 2014, 09:38:38 pm
Is it possible to 'Level up' later on and increase my other skills? Or am I stuck with whatever I choose at the beginning?
(And I'm still wondering what a Combat Herring is... Just a body shield/tank for everyone else?)

No swapping gear yet dude ^_^;; and the Assault Rifle wasn't meant to be an option. You're also part of a Government organisation, so its Uniforms and Set Gear for now.

I'm liking the fact you're both going for Shooters :P stop it, bad GM

There will be a Lvl Up chance. I'm still figuring out How many extra points to give. Maybe I'll just roll it :P
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Waaaghpower on February 13, 2014, 09:47:32 pm
Why did you say we're both going for shooters? I'm going mainly melee, 'cause with a combat shotgun I'll need a 2 to hit... With Melee, I need a 4. A little better. (I guess that with shooting I'll get twice as many chances to hit, but whatevs.)
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Waaaghpower on February 13, 2014, 09:49:14 pm
I suppose you could argue that I'm not going for a combat build at all...
Then again, if I do go super-tank, I'll be immune to every weapon except the door melting gun...

No option for a sniper so far I see. Is that an oversight, or does the setting you have in mind not suit them?

Seeing as there are no ranges listed, you could probably snipe pretty well with any of the weapons. You won't get a  choice of weapon right away, but it looks like the melta-gun-thing will be a pretty good sniping option since it has high damage and minimal penalty to hit.

You would need an 8 before midfiers, an the Hit modifiers mean you'd need a 10 to hit anything with your Range Skill :P In combat is the same.

Jayne on the other hand is 2+ to hit, and with the Combat Shotgun that would be 4+, with the Assault Rifle (fi I let him have it) would be 6+. In combat he'd be the same as you.

Keep in mind these are on a D12 ;) So Waagh, you're not gonna hit much :P

In my mind, the setting doesn't suit them, as I currently have no plans that involve Sniping targets.

No ranges is becuase you'd essentially be fighting in areas where highest destance is going to be equivalent to ~12-18" on a regular 40k board. Hence why the Plasma Rifle has two shots.
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Waaaghpower on February 13, 2014, 10:22:22 pm
I had the scales inverted (I was thinking low rolls were good and high rolls were bad) but my point still stands. No matter what, I've got a 1/3 chance of getting one hit per turn. (Well, either 1/3rd in close combat, or two 1/6 chances.)

Good thing I don't care about hitting much. Once again, I'm nigh impervious: I can keep fighting all day, nobody's going to kill me.
(Also, those'll officially be my stats, just for fun. I'll taunt all the enemies and try to get them all to shoot at me...)

Post by: Waaaghpower on February 13, 2014, 10:27:13 pm
I suppose a min-maxed enemy with S14 would cause D6 damage per hit, assuming he hits me... But then again, I'll do the same to him, assuming we're the same level, so it really turns into a luck-of-the-dice game since we'd have the same chance at hitting and stuff.
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Narric on February 13, 2014, 10:32:33 pm
If you're going with it, write a bio about your character :P



I think to pull pre-existing material as reference, the Units are roughly what you'd get if you crossed Judge Dredd (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Film/JudgeDredd) with Section 9 (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex?from=Main.GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex), with a fair amount of 40k sprinkled in for flavour and such wat :P
Each unit is independant of the others. There are no transfers.

Depending on what kind of Bio you guys come up with, may influence where I go with the story. ;)

I'll jump in if you've still got room - and you don't mind, of course!

Melee: 6
Shooting: 7
Strength: 5
Resilience: 5
Mental: 7

A bit "average joe" but hopefully won't suck too much! Just a thought though narric; any options for pistols (purely as backup) or batons (to arrest rather than stab)?

Plus I have to join in asking - is a combat herring a misprint, and if not is there an option for a battle salmon? ;)

Edit----
Bio: Jeff Bibby, ex-Customs agent, assigned to unit following citations for several successful anti-smuggling operations. Still a bit more comfortable with desk work and research than high-intensity fieldwork, but he's not got this gig for no reason.

Feel free to play with the above if you need to narric. I wasn't sure how to interpret "no transfers"; I assumed you meant no "moved across from unit 75" rather than a "congrats son, here's your promotion to a better way of being shot at" as I figured these guys have to come from somewhere unless you are going for the "fresh off the hotdog run" approach..?

Wait, what? When I asked about the whole instant-kill thing, you said that a '6' would just result in maximum damage. Does this maximum damage somehow bypass any and all armor?

I realized when I made my previus post that their is no set Max Damage. I'm actually thumbling over it myself to figure out how to phrase it better. As currently nothing can actually harm you, and Natural Max of any dice often means a serious amount of damage, I'm trying to jar in

Hmm.. I hate thinking as I type :P Lets keep this simple.

If you can only be wounded on a Natural roll of 6, then you take the Strenght of the hit against you as damage (so 4 from a shotgun for each successful hit & Nat 6)
For characters with "Normal" levels of Resilience, a Natural 6 means 6 damage.

Does that seem ok to everyone?
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Waaaghpower on February 13, 2014, 10:52:08 pm
In that case, I might go with a stat-line more like this, to avoid being completely worthless:
Melee: 4
Shooting: 8
Strength: 4
Resilience: 10
Mental: 4

Or possibly, 8 Mental and 4 Shooting.
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Narric on February 13, 2014, 10:57:19 pm
You wouldn't be worthless. You'd be freakin difficult to kill, definately, you just wouldn't rack up as high a kill count as everybody else.

Awkwardly Pilum has a profile I was expecting :P I perhaps should have put some restiction of stat limits, but oh well. I overlooked that aspect, and now I'm having to find work arounds that don't kill off the game but ensure nobody is a walking god :P

We've had plenty of that from you Jayne ;)
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Waaaghpower on February 13, 2014, 11:01:08 pm
Just to clarify: A natural '6' from a shotgun would cause 10 damage?
Seeing as at 10 Toughness I'm impervious to all but anti-tank weaponry anyways, I think it's fine. 'Sides, I can slways add a couple more points later.
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Narric on February 13, 2014, 11:05:55 pm
We're going to put you in the category of only being wounded on a Nat-6, so only 4 damage ;)

Also, going by my first draft for HP calculation, your HP would be 36, so I doubt you'd be taken out that quickly. Jayne has 30hp, and Pilum has 24hp

honestly hadn't considered Medi-kits. Define Combat Engineering? Becuase we could assume that you're equipped with it as standard. I just listed Weapons to be honest :P

Combat engineering would be things like opening locked doors (quietly), hacking turrets and cameras and stuff. I don't know what you have planned, so I don't know if these woulf be useful

Ranged: 7
Strenght: 6
Resilience: 5
Mental: 8


Black Wolf was a no nonsense Sergeant, a veteran of more heists, murders, gang fights and car chases then he cares to remember. When the hundred units were announced, he knew he shouldn't volunteer, being one of the few members on the force getting close to retirement age but he wanted to be part of the action.

Note: I don't want or am aiming for the leader role. This is just the Bio I wanted for my Character.

Nope, and I think that brings us to the max of 6 players :P

We do still need a Sergeant/Commander/Lead Figure in this. I'll leave that up to you guys, as you should have someone who wants to lead ;)

Mabbz has the highest Mental, tied with Tebalt, but since Tebalt doesn't want a leadership role I vote for Mabbz.

ALSO: I just noticed this, thought I should clarify. I was not clear at all, but I decided to just max out my Resilience. My stats should say 4 4 4 14 4.

I'm good with Mabbz having it. Wait... this is the guy who always Tempts Fate. Maybe we should give it to Jayne instead. :P

I was kinda leaning my character towards being a good all rounder that could take charge, but generally isn't the leader because he's too laid back most of the time. He's more likely to be the second in command. If you want he can be the leader, but it wasn't really what I was going for.

Also, I will not promise to stop tempting fate.

The Mental stat hasnout to do with who should be the leader :P Its your charisma that should decide it ;)

I will point out that whoever becomes Team Leader gets the Energy Blade instead of the Combat Blade ;)

Also, Jayne wanted to call dibs on being Special Weapons guy with the Focused Heat Rifle. Anyone say nay to this?

What does an energy blade do, exactly?
And since Charisma isn't a stat... Meaning I'm not nescessarily bad at it...
I re-add my name to the drawing.
Then again, I still haven't finished my character and it's 3 AM.

The Energy Blade is +1 to your Strength for Melee Attacks, and 2-5 attacks per round. When Activated, the damage the target takes is doubled after damage calculation.
Title: Re: Unit 52 [Feeler]
Post by: Waaaghpower on February 14, 2014, 09:32:36 am
And how many attacks do you normally get every turn? (That could be really potent. Even with WS4...Er, Melee 4, that'll still usually get a hit or two and cause some hefty damage.)

Gary King

Gary is an aging chap who is rapidly approaching 40. This distresses him somewhat. He dreams of great accomplishment and acts somewhat impulsively. Once he sets his mind on a goal, he will do anything to complete it, even at great personal risk and probably against better judgement, which he lacks. . .

D4 Attacks with a Combat Blade, D4 +1 for Energy Blade, and if you haven't swapped to your Melee weapon, you get only two attacks using your Combat Shotgun in melee.

Well, from a purely practical perspective, the energy blade should go to the best melee fighter, which would be me or Pilum. Pilum has a better ranged skill though, so probably me. I don't know if my character's easy-going nature is sensible for a leader, but I'll take the leadership position if no one objects.

You would probably best moving a couple pts into your Range and Mental stat :P Resiliece 10 is still going to save you from hurt. Your low Mental will mean difficulty moving around/through cover :P and low Range will mean you're not going to be much of a threat to enemy NPCs.

Name:
Andrew Knightley
Andy is... A big guy. A really, really big guy. At just above seven feet, and almost 350 pounds, very few people can say they tower over him. He makes his money as a boxer in various local circuits, and usually wins by merely outlasting his opponents. For him, fighting as an enforcer was merely a way to make more money doing the same thing.
(For reference, he looks something like Dalip Singh.)


Stats:
(I modified them again! WOO!)
Shooting 4
Melee 5
Strength 5
Resilience 12
Mental 4

Richard got his start as an undercover narcotics agent, often being adept with sneaking and bluffing. Thankfully these are habits that tend to endear him to mob bosses and the like, as well as his ability to 'work with his hands' so to speak, much to their eventual detriment.

Hmmm, what could we use for DACs nickname? :P

I'm wanting Pilum and RC to give their Chars' names. It feels a bit awkward having a couple unnamed PCs. I'm not planning on killing anybody off from the word go :P

Here is something for you guys to use when rolling:
1d12.hits();1d6

Where it asks for the number of rolls, but in all the attacks/shots you have (unless you're not attacking or shooting for a round)
But your "To hit" score in the brackets, and the modifier for the D6 is the Attack/shot strength, minus the targets Resilience.

The results for each shot will be displayed as so:
Code: [Select]
1d12.hits(8);1d6-5 ? [3] = (0)
1d12.hits(8);1d6-5 ? [3,-5] = (-2)

First is To Hit (1 = Hit, 0 = Miss), second is damage. Natural 6s overide damage ;)

If your target requires a 6 to even damage, then just put in -5 for the D6 modifier ;) 1 = Max Damage then.

Hope that helps :)

Jack X. Mason, aka. Jax, is a pretty solid sort of guy. He's played the part of cynical sergeant for the better part of a decade. He knows his way around most mission sites by experience - they all look the same after this long - and he's had plenty of time to get acquainted with his equipment. He's acted as mentor to three recruits so far, and none of them have died yet, which he considers a great success.

How's that?

Invisible Castle is not working for me, but there will be roughly six to sixteen Heretics to deal with. Don't worry, they're not all in the main room ;)

I feel dumb for completely missing the whole hologram thing... I thought we were there. :P

As a side-note, Knight is hardly a loquacious chap. (That is, he communicates mostly with syllables and gestures.) Not a big deal, but he's more likely to grin and then frown, than say 'Let's do this!' and then 'Oh shit.'
I hadn't really communicated that, but for future reference.
(He would also start blasting away with his shotgun and try to make the cultists duck for cover before ducking himself, but that's a matter of three rounds rapid.)

As my post that included it seems to have gone missing, all you need to do is say how many attacks/shots you have and input this dice roll:

1d12.hits();1d6-In brackets input your To Hit score. For the damage roll (the D6), subtract the target Resilience from your Str and input the result

I feel I should point out that the initial post just said three rounds rapid with little explanation as to how it works beyond that. Ravs and I use that system in our RPs, but we roll all the dice rather than getting the players to roll there own. I assumed it'd be the same here, so I didn't roll anything.

Anyways, I've sent my rolls. They're horrible. I only rolled for my shooting attack, since I don't know if I should roll for taking cover.

Well, this plan isn't going as intended, but then I didn't really expect it to. Where's a medic when you need one?

I'm sorry dudes, I even made up rules to keep you alive. If I hadn't we'd have seen two squad members dead in the first round :P
No worries. Fudging dice rolls and making stuff up to keep it fun is something all good GMs do.

Sounded good to me, Narric. As for future plans... I think I'll just carry on preaching the Gospel of St. Boomstick unto the heathen ;) I'll advance toward the boss (cover hopping) as per original plan if I get the chance though (ie there's nothing unpleasant heading my way!)

Actually the plan was to not split the party. To quote myself at the start "Once the main room is clear, Jeff and Wolf can take up defensive positions kill anyone that comes through one door while the rest of us deal with the other room. Rinse and repeat."

Also, I just wanted to keep shooting, I didn't want to walk forward. Mainly because he's got a frikkin' energy blade and can actually hurt me with it, unlike most weapons.

He's now surrounded and it numbered, he can either give up or die at this point.
