Are you the user trying to create seasons out of this?

I realized while I was considering slightly refocusing my dark knight (post purification), and I realized that I have two rites that I haven't spent.

Should I just spend the rites after redemption, and have that be it for my changes? My original plan was to drop shift and swap thematic for flowing, but with the two unspent rites that would be 6 rites worth of change, and that seems a bit excessive.

I have a plan either way.

because it refers to empty casings which are only useful if you have reload ammunition which is a green spell

Really, what I want to do is switch to the Joy well (unbeknownst to the main girls), and shift some rites to add a little support utility, but I was having so much trouble getting the rites to fit that I dropped it.

@Need_TLC
hello this is dog

There's no way you can predict complete balance, to be honest. Do your best for the release version, and then enter into the balancing phase. Feedback is the #1 helper for balancing, but take it all with a grain of salt. One person may tell you an option is OP while another will say the exact opposite; go with what you can rationalize out of it all.

Ah, I get it now. Empty casings are for reloading with the spell.

4 7.62x55mm empty casings(20)
1 9x18mm magazine(22)
KS 23 shotgun(Free)
2 23x75mmR shot(32)
5 dry rations(62)
1 Water(67)
3 Flameless Heaters(70)
2 Grenades (80)

General strategy is to keep moving, keep them guessing, lay various traps using local game, exhaust their supplies and take potshots aided with magic(either course correction or use it to set out fougasse traps). The enemy economancer will be both the most visible and the first one to be targeted.

Team : Klara, Aglaya, Parvana
Klara acts as makeshift suppresion, Aglaya as backup and Parvana as sniper. Which means I'll be taking point, fucking great.

There's nothing wrong with talking about CYOA help here, it's entirely on topic and makes this place more productive. Better that than /pol/ or /r9k/ crap, or other drama.

hairygrape

@lostmypassword
Well the basis is that pur current bodies are just holding cells for our souls, and once we die our souls are released and a world of opportunity is open to us. What I would do if it were me is live forever, travelling the cosmos with my soul mate. But the CYOA shouldn't be about what I want to do. Maybe someone wants their soul to be reincarnated forever, a rebirth? Or someone wants their soul to not interact often, but be a more godly figure watching over. I want the CYOA to be consistent in theme, if it's too loose it won't be any good. On the other hand, if I limit people too much, no one will have fun.

Sir_Gallonhead
Sir_Gallonhead

@hairygrape
What a conundrum... Maybe if those choices have different characteristics but they have access to the same options, but some are in an advantage in certain things could solve the problem? Not sure if i explained myself well.

Illusionz

@Sir_Gallonhead
I could do that, but I'd say to exclude stuff like reincarnation. I think you're right, as long as I keep the theme soul make make sure They are ascended and soul, it will be consistent enough. Thank you.

Evil_kitten
Evil_kitten

@hairygrape
I like the sound of this and kinda wanna help, but tb h I don't really understand what the problem is. You want choices only focused on staying and doing things in their soul bodies and not reincarnate back into a body? Or are you having trouble writing choices from other anon's pov?

PackManBrainlure

@Evil_kitten
you want choices only focussed on staying and doing things in their soul bodies

Yes, but the issue was that I didn't want to limit what people can do.

Nude_Bikergirl
Nude_Bikergirl

@PackManBrainlure
Oh, well I don't think not having a reincarnation option would be that limiting if that's the kind of theme you're going for, there are other ways to live mortal lives, like avatars or physical souls, something not necessarily implying reincarnation.

Not really, since essentially each of the four races just forces you to buy the appropriate magic, rather than giving it to you for free.
Or the "-3 shards" bits have no reason being there, since you get the magic for free, and thus don't need to pay the three shards.

Would someone mind telling me if this intro is too hammy or not? I've never really written anything "serious" before, and I'd like to make sure what I write doesn't sound too silly or cringey.

[It seems that your life on Earth has ended.
Be it through a tragic accident, malicious intent, or an illtimed sickness, your body has died.
However, as your old life ends, your new one opens up.
Most people in the universe are just consciousnesses piloting their bodies until death. But not all.
Some have a divine spark that so many others do not: a soul.
Upon dying, your soul has been freed, and thus so has your true self. What do you look like? ]

I'd argue that bliss through intelligence and self reflection is a better happiness than one born of ignorance.

One of the required books was written by the professor. I procrastinated writing a 6 page paper on what philosophy is until 9 hours before class started. I wrote it in about 8 hours, starting at midnight, and mostly copied from the book. I got a B+ on it.

That taught me a valuable lesson, don't write what your opinion is but what is your teacher's.

More than likely it's just irrelevant. When I was young, broke, and depressed I consumed philosophy texts and lectures incessantly. Listening on the way to work, reading after work, pondering and debating with whomever I could get to engage me. I really did feel like I was on the cusp of some sort of understanding.

Sometimes, I miss that feeling. But it's irrelevant to me now. I'm a grown man with shit to do and my life is good. It's harsh in hindsight to think of what a cocky little shit I was, with all those ideas and no real understanding of...anything. Maybe I'm wrong, but when I see people on here getting hot and bothered over other people with no grasp or care for philosophy, I think they're probably young, dumb, and have nothing going for them too. Projection at it's finest, I'm sure.

They are pretty much indifferent to the concept of order and chaos. CN often challenges traditions, authority and are often anarchists. While TN dosen't give a fuck. TN does what it think is best at the time. Its ok to follow laws and it is okey to break laws. TN is indifferent and Nymora and Avaryss are pretty much apathetic to most things. But I do admit they are a mix of TN and CN, but they are more TN then CN.

Not explaining
You can explain it without being scientific. For example: magic is getting capricious spirit to do shit for you by burning offerings, dancing, etc.
You can then make that scientific (by creating some industrial-scale incense burner or something) but quasi-scientific laws as magic usually may as well just be sci-fi. There are exceptions ofc.
I think it's the difference between "use force magic to launch yourself in the air" versus "anime high jumps HO!".
Sort of. It's more like the difference between using force magic to launch yourself into the air, and riding a broom which can fly because what else is an old woman going to use?

If you've ever lucid dreamed you'll know that it's a constant battle against the dreamscape and the reality it tries to force on you. It's not so much working with how the conscious mind and the subconscious mind connect but rather using the conscious mind as a lifeline to escape the pull of the dream and the subconscious. I've been completely lucid with a vast amount of superpowers only to lose all of it when I get distracted by something in the dream and the "plot" sucks me back in more than once.

I was using scientific to mean resembling or manipulating actual science, instead of human myths/irrationality/imagination. Explanation is fine, usually.

For example, magical mentor's energy manipulation focus if scientific. That one has an excuse, in that it's explicitly meant to parallel actual science, but even considering that it needs more work to make the two ideas (science, magic) fit together. Thank God for Vedic magic, which, from what little you see of it, seems more magically magical.

If you've thought about it, how important is specialization in this magic system? Like, say I focused on two of the three types; am I half as potent with each as I would be if I focused on just one?

Magic is, by definition, mysterious and supernatural. If you take all the wonder out of it, it's not really magic anymore. For my part, I like magic to have something individualized and private. A unique element, where even if everyone can do it, everyone has to figure out how to do things their own way.

Explanations aren't enough, usually.

Just look at Game of Thrones. Its magicians know what to do to work their sorcery, but they don't know 'why' or 'how' it works.
It's in explicit contrast to the natural world. The Maesters hate it.

I'd guess the last one alludes to finding out exactly who sent you there and why, and also why you've become what you are (i.e. what I think is the implied gap in your memory between waking up in the abyss and the last thing you remember before it).

@Flameblow

How important is speculation in anything? Science?

I would say it has the most potential in fields of magic. Science can make nukes, magic can make magic nukes that ignore members of your military holding a certain talisman. The way I imagine research works here is for people to come up with the most outlandish ideas (like above) and then see if it can become a reality.

I like the way Mage the Ascension handles it with consensus reality. It lets you choose how to approach magic, either with hermeticism, faith in a higher power, pseudoscientific technobabble, etc.
Or you can join the correct faction and bomb all the others into oblivion.

Hard to say, she's really the most "bland" personality among them, so don't expect her expectations to be very outlandish.

Show her you're worth your reputation; she looks up to strong figures easily. At the same time, give her room to grow and let her innovate and surprise you with what she can do. I suppose being a fan of literature and music is also a plus, since those are her hobbies.

@JunkTop

That's the limitation of my setting unfortunately (magic is treated as an energy form, etc), but I chose to explain it this way for a reason.

I haven't decided yet. but I expect to highlight these in (fictional) measurable units when I do the magic-crafting CYOA.

I do imagine it to be very good, though. Battlemages were capable of some pretty powerful shit, enough to almost be a nuke in one person. The battlemage marks also kinda helped in that regard though, but they're a lost art by the time of Magic Mentor.

In Apocalypse, the "marks" will return in the form of replaceable/modular digital etches in your power armour suit.

It's above average.
Average is between 90 and 110.

But it's actually really difficult to quantify intelligence, since someone could be a groundbreaking, history making savant in on area; and drooling moron in the other.

The human brain is so complex and uses so many different tools and methods to crunch information that no test currently made can measure all the ways a person can be smart.

Personally I've got this thing where I can recall huge amounts of useless trivia about everything under the sun, but I can't accurately recall anything from my own life past about 4 years back. My entire childhood is a blur, and my teenage years are getting foggy rapidly.

Feedback:

runic mana - most raw
What the hell, you work on symbols. That's hardly raw. Quite the opposite. You could easily switch vedic and runic magic with names. Bonus points for runic magic be then as seen IRL in different cultures where it rarely was done to actively cause shit but more like for divinations and enchantments and be more balanced - currently not only it's most effective, it's also the easiest to use and also works for use in circuits and whatnot. Each of this trait should befit only each, single pillar. Get runic useful in some magitek gadgetry and effectiveness, efficiency make traits of other two pillars.

And maybe explain how they differ in casting. Even simple thing that one pillar is based upon condensation and utilization of certain complex spells through use of simplified representations of sequences of runes, while other may be based on refining one's will and imagination and yet another through specialized rituals.

Easily pillars could be divided in general to more ritualistic approach or more abstract way of thinking.

More discplines are necessary. Even in prestige section there's so many uses of magic hinted at that it's a surprise there are no relevant areas of study one can take up as a mentor. Especially practical use of spells. Martial magic may be a students speciality but I cannot take a discpline akin to magical boot camp? Preposterous!

Facilities - there's many technical, magic-academical ones, but nothing for simple medication or developing more artistic skills one could associate with magic (I want to train bardic mages, dammit!)

Lastly, a few more students would be nice. I understand that pupils are meant to be kinda waifu materials but I seriously think that making more of those so one can have several-people-big class, of both guys and gals would be awesome. Also, some hard limit on how many can be chosen would be great.

Took me a good half hour to research, but I had no idea this philosophy was so widely held. Personally I tend towards the idea that birth is bad, but death is also bad, and so we should avoid both at all costs, as opposed to the philosophy (especially notable in the ancient greeks) that life is bad, and so we should avoid birth and seek death as soon as possible.

@Lord_Tryzalot
Both are good. I can't exactly sit down to do a Traveller style cyoa all the time, but whenever I get around to it I absolutely love it. They also tend to offer greater build variation. I can do them over and over.

On the other hand, small ones are quick and easy, offering me at least a day's worth of entertainment. They're also easier to repost.

I think there's a middle ground too, where things like Horseman's Kingdom and Monster Hunter exist

@Lord_Tryzalot
Short CYOAs are nice if the premise is very simple. Some straightforward, limited in scope thing of "choose a few powers/other boons/waifu" can work with a single page. Want something more ambitious that'd likely require multiple categories? Some world builder, some character builder in some particular setting with different categories of choices etc? Either make it very long or divide it into several pages full of nifty choices allowing different builds and personal touch - otherwise it's most likely a waste of potential.

What the hell, you work on symbols. That's hardly raw. Quite the opposite.
It mentions nothing about symbols. My logic for the name "Runic" is because it's essentially mana-based circuitry, both in the physical/artificial form and in the way you cast spells.

You're confused about the differences with Runic and Vedic because Vedic is a bit too vague. I admit that I didn't explain it very well; there's more to come with the planned expansion in the future.

And maybe explain how they differ in casting.
This is going to be one of the main focuses of the spell-crafting expansion.

More discplines are necessary.
Each of these disciplines encompass a vast amount of fields/majors. I made a mistake in the student section where I list these as their "major," when they're supposed to say discipline.

I'm not really sure how I can expand on it; these pretty much encompass everything I can think of. What sort of disciplines did you have in mind?

magical boot camp
This is an advanced magical university; entrants are assumed to be well-learned by this point.

If you mean boot camp as in a militaristic sort of thing, those are likely encompassed in the existing disciplines. I imagine there's a major under spellcraft theory that's basically all about learning military/infantry tier magic.

I think the fault here is my lack of clarity on the disciplines. Maybe I'll increase the text box sizes and expand on their descriptions/examples.

medication/artistic facilities
Medication should be able to be studied in the mana-biotic lab. It's meant to be for anything related to biology.

Not really sure how I can do an artistic thing, though. I think for bardic magic, you could do a ritual sanctum and get the all-purpose room (I specifically mention that it's sound-proof).

more students
I ran out of page space, but I do plan on adding more in the future, including males. You can only pick 1.
