5e Arcane Archer

This is the arcane archer build for 5e.  As with others, I'm not thinking of a specific character as I was with the samurai, just a general archetype.

5e Half-Orc Brute

This is a build for a straight forward brutal half-orc fighter.  I'm not thinking of a specific half-orc character for this, just the general archetype of a simple power-focused half-orc warrior.

5e Samurai

This is the samurai build for the 5e D&D.  I'm going for a Ruruoni Kenshin style samurai here, lightly armored (if any armor at all) and with high Dex as well as Strength.  This character is built using the variant human rules.  AC will be limited by the armor in the PC.

Some 5E Characters

I'm going to build for a couple of different styles of characters here a little bit at a time as a have time and interest.

I'm mostly going to be using a 30 pt array of 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10 but will sometimes just be doing a 30 pt buy and for rebuilds of past characters will use the stats I had on file for them.

I'll take suggestions for builds not yet decided on

Divine Blood Immortals

The quest for immortality has driven a number of mortals for eons.  More than a few have succeeded in the search.  Psyche and the Community are well aware of several and expect that there are a good three to six thousand immortal individuals around the world.  Of course, that was before it was rediscovered that Demons and Gods were physical beings rather than incorporeal entities.  Now at least some members of Psyche are aware that there are over a million individuals who were born with a potentially endless lifespan.

Divine Blood Psychics and Colors

A lot of the New Agers that think they know about psychic phenomena tend to spout off a lot of theories that have no basis in fact.  One of the popular theories is about the power that color has to make stuff happen. This is especially the case with individuals claiming to be feng shui shih but really haven't studied with anybody credible. At most, colors are indicators rather than causes.

Virtuacon Divine Blood Games: A Butterfly's Wings

Psyche has many functions among the supernatural population of Earth.  Most frequently they serve to support the population, but they also act as law enforcement when there is a need.

Divine Blood Psychic Skills

The majority of psychics in the Earth of Divine Blood train to acquire their powers rather than being born with them.  As with born psychics, most of these are civilians and not trained for combat.  However, the most dangerous psychics in the world are of this sort.

Divine Blood Talents

Talents are inborn supernatural abilities.  For the most part talents live what anybody else would consider a normal life.  The time when being born a psychic meant living a life of risk and fear has been done for at least two generations.  Most Talents are civilians and only learn enough about their powers to avoid accidents.  Others make an actual living from their Talents in some fashion, usually through Psyche.  Talents that train to fight are the most rare, but do exist.

Talents are placed in three categories: Metabolic, Manipulative and Sensitive.

Fate Accelerated Character Creation

A quick summary of character creation using FAE mostly for use with my online convention games.

Virtuacon Divine Blood Games: The Dunadan of Avalon

Avalon is one of the major secret societies in the world of Divine Blood.

Divine Blood Races

The following races, all those included in the RPG supplement, represent less than half the population of non-humans on Earth leaving room for people to come up with their own minor races.  They include the most common non-humans as well as some stand-out rare species.

General Motors Military Unit 7 - Errant

This is an assault upright roughly fifteen feet tall.  It was originally meant to be a simple upgrade to the armor of the MU-4 Warrior that is in wide use by the US government and a few of their closer allies.  However, during the early tests with the Gawain prototype it began showing unusual performance that Avalon and the development companies connected to it decided bore further attention.

Rowling Industries Model 5 Reconnaissance Upright

This upright is roughly 12 feet tall with a slender frame that is designed primarily for mobility and speed.

One-Shot Gaming Sessions #1: Kuro Preparation

Starting next Thursday, I'm going to be running some various RPGs through one adventure (usually 1-3 sessions, possibly 4) as a way of testing the systems I've got in my collection.  The first adventure is going to be Cubicle 7's Kuro.  So I am taking this opportunity to summarize the background of the setting of this Blade Runner meets Juon (The Grudge).

Rebuilding for the 5th Edition: Medora

Okay, I'll be taking a character that went up to 20th level this time.  My Disciple of Medusa: Medora.

Rebuilding for the 5th Edition: Teryna

Okay, this is probably one of the most mechanically easy characters I'll be doing.  Mechanically speaking, Teryna is a human rogue.  It's her backstory that's a bit weird.

Rebuilding for the 5th Edition: Jhessail Crackstone

Another rebuild.  This one is going to be a little difficult because her race doesn't actually exist as a player race: wererat.

Rebuilding for the 5th Edition: Kya'Rei L'Di'Shinabon

Going to try to rebuild some of my older characters for the 5th edition rules.  Starting with a flirty drow priestess.
