World Basics

Damage System
This campaign will use a variation on the Vitality/Wound Point System

I'm using a slight variant on it. Vitality Points will work exactly the same as normal. Wound Points work as normal except that you gain your CON+1 WP to begin with, plus bonus wound points based on your BAB. Each time your BAB goes up by one point you gain one Wound Point. Weapons in this system do not gain expanded threat ranges, instead the multiplier is reduced by one, thus most weapons now do only normal damage on a critical hit as normal for this system, but a spear for example would do double damage on a crit. I suppose the normal system could be used though if everyone thinks this is overpowered.

Magic/Psionics System

This will be what I call a medium-magic campaign setting. Basically, it doesn't fit as a low-magic setting because casters will still be fairly common and there will still be plenty of magic items, but magic won't be used in place of technology or be quite as prevalent or easy as in a high-magic setting. And I've come up with a mechanic to support this:

Spells take energy and leave the user slightly more weary than he was. Mechanically, this means they burn Vitality points equal to 1/2 the spell level rounded down. So 0 and 1st level spells cost nothing. 2nd and 3rd level spells cost 1 VP each, and so on. Yes I realize that will slightly power down casters and restrict them more, but that's the point.

Psionics take energy as well, but in a slightly different way, a psionic character's vitality damage from manifesting is (points consumed-1)/4, rounded down.

Magic in this campaign isn't something taken lightly. Spell-like abilities are in born and take no Vitality to use however. Undead that cast spells will do so directing the negative energy that powers them, gaining a spell-pool equal to their Wound Points

Fluffier Stuff

Cosmology Stuff

I've decided that time in this world will be the same as in our world, with hours, days, weeks, years, moths, ect. the same for simplicity sake. This world will also have a 12-month zodiac, with each sign attached to an element, and each element coffering a bonus to those born under it.

Zodiac
Ok, I don't have the signs worked out yet, but here are the bonuses I've decided on for each month:

January: (Air) +1 Jump
February: (Water) +1 Heal
March: (Earth) Craft always considered in-class
April: (Fire) Intimidate always considered in-class
May: (Air) +1 Tumble
June: (Water) +1 Swim
July: (Earth) +1 to any one Craft
August: (Fire) +1 Intimidate
September: (Air) Jump always considered in-class
October: (Water) Swim always considered in-class
November: (Earth) +1 Balance
December: (Fire) +1 Gather Information

Mystic Gnome Racial Traits

-2 STR, +2 CON, +2 INT, -2 CHA Mystic gnomes are tough and smart, but they are physically weak and gruff.

Small: As a small creature, a Mystic Gnome gains a +1 size bonus to Armor Class, a +1 size bonus on attack rolls, and a +4 size bonus on Hide checks, but he uses smaller weapons than humans use, and his lifting and carrying limits are three-quarters of those of a medium character.

Base Speed: 20 Feet

+4 dodge bonus to Armor Class against monsters of the giant type. Any time a creature loses itís Dexterity bonus (if any) to Armor Class, such as when itís caught flat-footed, it loses its dodge bonus, too.

Earth Spell: A Mystic Gnome gains a spell pool of vitality points equal to his level while he is in contact with the ground. This spell pool refreshes after 24 hours, calculated from the last time it refreshed, or 8 hours of rest, whichever comes last. While not in contact with the ground (either due to flying or being submersed in a liquid to deep to touch down) the Mystic Gnome can not access these extra points. These extra points can only be used for casting spells and are burnt before the Mystic Gnomeís regular vitality points. Healing spells have no effect on the spell pool.

+2 racial bonus on saving throws against spells and spell-like effects.

+2 racial bonus on Listen checks.

+2 racial bonus on craft (alchemy) checks.

+2 racial bonus on Concentration checks.

Favored Class: Wizard

Mystic Gnomes are an ancient sub race, dating back to the time when gods still lived their day to day lives among mortals. Long ago gnomes where introduced to magic, and some of them took to it with a passion and natural skill unseen anywhere else. No one, not even the deities can tell when the first Mystic Gnomes appeared, but over the millenniums of the world they have made themselves very distinct. While the Rock Gnomes are more technologically skilled, and have a good taste for the arts, Mystic Gnomes are nearly the opposite. Mystic Gnomes have very little technology of their own, borrowing most of their devices from their Rock Gnome brethren and Human and Dwarven allies. They have little patience for or interest in any art besides the magical ones, although many individuals can appreciate the skills of a good leather worker, bookbinder, or even blacksmith. Mystic Gnomes are highly intelligent and are tough like the other races of stone, but they suffer from the same low physical strength as the Rock Gnomes, as well as tending to be gruff, impatient, and often irritable.

In the beginning of the Multiverse there was only two, the Creater and the Destroyer. At first they slept, for eons upon eons, time unmeaserable, they slept, until one day the Creater awoke. The Creater looked around him and saw a void, and emptiness in need of filling. He began his work at once, slowly creating the world. For years he worked, undisturbed. Then one day his work awoke the Destroyer, who looked upon the new world with hatred for itís existance. The two fought, each being injured by the other, until finally the Destroyer was weakened, and the Creater trapped him deep inside a plane outside of the Multiverse itself for all time. But the fight had gone on for to long, the Createrís work was undone. He began anew, creating a new world over centuries until finally it was finished. Then, realizing his presence was to great a strain on the world and to remain would overwhelm and kill any life in the world, the Creater formed the fist gods, then sealed himself away in another outside plane.

Artifacts

The Scepter of the Creator
Major Artifact

Before retreating to his own plane for eternity, the Creater crafted a powerful Scepter and gave it to the dieties he created to look after his world.

When held by at least 3 dieties of Divine Rank 20 and the words of power are spoken by another diety of at least Divine Rank 6, the scepter connects to the power of the Creater. One creature without divine power who is choosen by the Diety speaking the words of power is then sucked through a vortex and faced with multiple tests. If they pass those tests, they are granted Divine power and a Divine Rank of 0. This power can be used once per century.

Apart from this power, the Scepter functions as +10 Holy Power Everdancing Heavy Mace

In addition, twice per day the scepter can let loose a blast of divine power that causes death for mortals and leaves dieties unconcious. A DC 50 Will save negates.

The Sword of the Dran Defender

This +2 Holy Deflecting Wounding Admantine Bastard Sword can only be held by a male of 15 HD or more, or the Dran Defender. If the one who picks it up has less than 15 HD or is female, the sword will slide from their hand and fall to the floor. In addition, the sword will only do nonlethal damage to any good creature, and then only if in the possession of a good wielder. In the possesion of an evil wielder the sword will go through a good opponent harmlessly. It will always do full lethal damage to an evil opponent unless the wielder actively does nonlethal damage.

In addition to these abilities the sword grants the user, Damage Reduction 4/-, and Fast Healing 1 whenever the sword is drawn. Whenever the sword is in the possesion of the Dran Defender it grants him Exotic Weapon Proficiency (Bastard Sword) if he doesnít already have it Twice per day, on command, the sword will bypass all damage reduction of an evil opponent. It also grants the user Fire Immunity, and can cast Haste 1/day.

The Sword of the Ama Defender

This +3 Holy Keen Defending Admantine Rapier can only be held by a female of 15 HD or more, or the Ama Defender. If the one who picks it up has less than 15 HD or is male, the sword will slide from their hand and fall to the floor. In addition, the sword will only do nonlethal damage to any good creature, and then only if in the possession of a good wielder. In the possesion of an evil wielder the sword will go through a good opponent harmlessly. It will always do full lethal damage to an evil opponent unless the wielder actively does nonlethal damage.

In addition to these abilities the sword grants the user Dodge and Uncanny Dodge whenever it is drawn. Whenever the sword is in the possesion of the Ama Defender it grants her Evasion if she doesnít already have it. Twice per day, on command, the sword will magically strike home against an evil opponent, acting as though the wielder had rolled a natural 20. It also grants the user Acid Immunity and can cast a Haste spell 1/day

The Sword of the Ka Champion

This +1 Unholy Flaming Mighty Cleaving /+1 Unholy Flaming Admantine Two-Bladed Sword can only be held by a female of 10 HD or more, or the Ka Champion. If the one who picks it up has less than 10 HD or is male, the sword will slide from their hand and fall to the floor.

In addition to these abilities the sword grants the user Cleave, Dodge, and Exotic Weapon Proficiency (Two-Bladed Sword). Once per day, on command, the sword will act as though it had the throwing and returning abilities. It also grants the user Fire Immunity.

The Sword of the Dra Champion

This +1 Unholy Shocking Burst Admantine Greatsword can only be held by a male of 10 HD or more, or the Dra Champion. If the one who picks it up has less than 10 HD or is female, the sword will slide from their hand and fall to the floor.

If they wear metal armor they sever their connection with the natural world for as long as they wear it and 24 hours after removing it and cannot cast spells or use any of their supernatural abilities. Nature Mages are proficient with light shields, but may only use wooden ones. Armor never hinders their spellcasting.

Alignment spells: A Nature Mage cannot cast spells with an alignment descriptor that their alignment doesnít match.

Descendant Mage

I've realized that the magic system REALLY hursts sorcerers, so I want to find a way to make them still work. I want to make it so that all sorcerers are descended from something in this world, so they are called descendant mages. I kinda want to give them different abilities based on what they are descended from, but I'm not sure how.

HD: D4 or D6 depending on potency of abilities.

Skill Points per Level: 2 or 4 depending on potency of abilities.

Ancestor Possibilities:

True Dragon (Draconic Mage)
Devil (Infernal Mage)
Demon (Abyssal Mage)
Celestial (Celestial Mage)
Undead (Vampire, Lich, or Mummy Lord) (Necro Mage)
Fey (Sylvan Mage)
Hag (Hag Mage)
Titan (Titanic Mage)

Arcane Defender
I want to make dwarves in my campaign unigue by having them mix magic and swordplay, thus I want to make a class similiar to the duskblade, only based around magic that fits dwarves more, such as defensive magic.

That's everything I have so far. I realize that there is very little fluff there, but does everything that I have look balanced, and does what fluff I have so far sound interesting? If so I'll develop more, and work on putting in alot more fluff. I do have some more fluff in mind, so if there's anything you specifically want to know more about, just ask.

I'm afraid 3e per se isn't really my area of expertise, but I will try to take a look at some point. You seem to be doing fine so far, keep it up.

(Of course, if you were thereafter to wander over to my planescape sketch thread and throw in some basic thoughts/first impressions, that would be nice.:smallsmile:)

Look good and thought-out, but I don't see anything that really sets it apart from pretty much any other setting. Basically, it seems very bland.

Samurai Jill
2008-12-17, 07:13 PM
Yeah, what he said. Again, I'm probably not the best judge of mechanical balancing here, but I just can't seem to see the "hook" for your setting- some underlying premise to make things interesting. It's wierd, 'cos my own setting is almost pure fluff with no crunch. :smallbiggrin:

I think Kiero's suggestion might be helpful for you- try to describe your setting in 500 words or so, to force yourself to summarise what's most important/interesting about it. If the result just doesn't feel compelling, you need to think about that.

Just glancing over it right now, but everything looks pretty good (although I do agree that fluff would be nice).

Could you elaborate how Vitality points work? I know they're in the SRD, but I've never quite understood them from that alone. If I know that, I can help tell you how your magic system looks.

Also, I'm assuming Weapon Defense doesn't stack with Two Weapon Defense, right?

You are correct. Weapon Defense doesn't stack with TWD

I agree with all of you, I still need alot of fluff. I've been working on the crunch alot, I'll work on summarizing it though, and adding fluff.
