    Default Asteron's Crazy Train of Thoughts. Because I love to talk. A lot.

    As the title say, I love to talk, and sometimes I can even listen.
    But the real reason I made this thread is because my OOC thread tend to go in very weird directions, and some players are having a hard time following with all the interruptions. Also, it's a great way to get some feedback on my homebrew, before I actually post it in the homebrew section. This is also the best way to get my attention, if you need me for something.

    So... it's a nice thread you have here. Be a shame if something happened to it...

    It will cause a lot of confusion.

    You really were bored.

    Apparently, it's not significant. Maybe a lover base, something around 12?

    No no, a lover base would be 6. What you want there is a Hanged Man base.

    Using the 15/35 system (you get 15+Agility initiative points each round and every 35 points accumulated give you a turn) cancel effect can reduce the current amount of initiative points, double if the target was supposed to get a turn this round. Sticking to the initiative order might be a bit slow for a PbP, but it's doable.

    It makes sense to me, but I'm not objective.

    I was also thinking in terms of positioning (though Grandia never really nailed that). Your current system doesn't really have much that could be affected by positioning, but maybe you could implement small things like intercepting from the back row taking 5 initiative points (or just make all minor actions require initiative).

    Also, what happens when two characters have the same initiative score in a round? It seems like it could be a big issue if cancels are involved.

    So you guys don't say I never deliver: Init-Simulator.exe!

    For clarity's sake, '12/35' is treated as 'base 12, cost 35'. So you don't get confused when asked to enter it

    It runs the simulation for AGI 3 to 10, executing 100 'counts' (the 'increase pool by initiative' bit), prints out on which count you got a turn, and how many turns you got across 100 counts.

    What do you think, boss?

    I was thinking about the positioning, but I still don't have anything solid. I was thinking about some kind of a grid, but definitely not a standard one. I remember that Grandia 3 (and I think Extreme and 2 did it too) allowed you to reposition your characters. It wasn't really useful, but I might be able to implement it. It would also open up various ranges that Grandia has, like (line, fan, around).

    Also, what happens when two characters have the same initiative score in a round? It seems like it could be a big issue if cancels are involved.
    I usually say PCs have the advantage, but if it's really that important they both roll a d20 and highest number wins.

    Ok, download it.

    Run the executable (double click).

    Type in the numbers needed, then enter (in a 12/35 scheme, the first number is 12, the second is 35).

    Read the numbers that appear.

    Press enter again to close the program.

    It isn't that complex

    Yes, I don't know anything about programing beyond moding Baldur's Gate 2.
    Honestly, I don't even know that, and if I was any better I could make the program take '12/35'

    (also, to avoid confusion: you need 'enter' between 15 and 35)
    I will accept no lesser death than Death by Dragon!

    Maybe it's sentient?

    Looking at the results, I think a higher gap would be better, making turns come less often. This is especially important for Grandia's cancel effect. Perhaps something like 12/40.
    Initiative points are doubled on the first turn, to avoid an empty turn(s) at the start.

It would also open up various ranges that Grandia has, like (line, fan, around).

    I usually say PCs have the advantage, but if it's really that important they both roll a d20 and highest number wins.
    I've only played the first Grandia, so I can't really comment that much, I guess

    I was thinking of splitting the battlefield in areas instead of single positions. With no friendly fire it could work pretty well. I think.

    Someday you will depart, but till that distant day
    Sing, and dance.
    Eat your fill of warm cooked food and cool jugs of beer.
    Cherish the children your love gave life.
    Bathe away life's dirt in warm drawn waters.
    Pass the time in joy with your chosen wife.
