6. Chimeras and Alternative Skills

Post by Cheshire Cat on Tue Mar 17, 2015 3:37 pm

1. Chimeras

As clearly seen in both the anime and manga, there are people, that are not entirely people, as in Heinkel's case. People that have been fused with an animal, possibly against their will, with Alchemy. Those people can transform into the creature they are fused with, or associated to, and can gain its abilities, for a determined amount of time, often long. However, turning into a Chimera is fairly easy, and has insane advantages. A Tier 1 turning into a crocodile, for example, would mean for him to gain all the power and stats upgrade of said animal, which, honestly, is quite unacceptable. We can't have a character move at 100km/h at Tier 1, for example.

Due to this, a particular system to deal with those cases has been created. It limits the Chimera characters a lot in a determined area, yet offers immense power in another, more peculiar one, which is, quite indeed, the Transformation. Chimeras wouldn't be able to use Alchemy, as it would make them way too powerful and give them advantage over the rest of players, since they'd be able to both transform and gain buffs, and use Alchemy, which is unfair. Yet, as mentioned before, the lack of Alchemy compensates with the ability of transforming, and using abilities linked to said animal that the user is connected to.

So, in a few words; Chimeras have the ability to transform into the animals they have been combined with, both partially and fully, and gain buffs and abilities associated to said creature. Partial and Full Transformations and Abilities count as skills, and can be registered in the Skill Registration Area, following the exact same template, and more or less the same rules. Transformation Skills have a few more rules applied to them that are to be followed and respected. Those rules/regulations are, as follows;

Tier 1 Transformations;

- Can be only partial transformations (User can transform his limbs to Cheetah Limbs, for example).

- The Area of Effect Abilities can have a maximum range of 5m.

- Buffs don't really have set rules; Speed, Strength, Agility buffs will be judged by staff and will be regulated by staff.

Tier 2 Transformations;

- Can be only partial transformations (User can transform his limbs to Cheetah Limbs, for example).

- The Area of Effect Abilities can have a maximum range of 10m.

- Buffs don't really have set rules; Speed, Strength, Agility buffs will be judged by staff and will be regulated by staff.

Tier 3 Transformations;

- Can be only partial transformations (User can transform his limbs to Cheetah Limbs, for example).

- The Area of Effect Abilities can have a maximum range of 20m.

- Buffs don't really have set rules; Speed, Strength, Agility buffs will be judged by staff and will be regulated by staff.

Tier 4 Transformations;

- Can be both full and partial transformations.

- The Area of Effect Abilities can have a maximum range of 40m.

- Buffs don't really have set rules; Speed, Strength, Agility buffs will be judged by staff and will be regulated by staff.

Tier 5 Transformations;

- Can be both full and partial transformations.

- The Area of Effect Abilities can have a maximum range of 80m.

- Buffs don't really have set rules; Speed, Strength, Agility buffs will be judged by staff and will be regulated by staff.

Tier 6 Transformations;

- Can be both full and partial transformations.

- The Area of Effect Abilities can have a maximum range of 100m.

- Buffs don't really have set rules; Speed, Strength, Agility buffs will be judged by staff and will be regulated by staff.

* Note: Chimeras would normally be people fused with Lions, crocodiles, Cheetahs, etc. Yet, seeing as this is a Roleplaying Forum, Fantasy Creatures Are allowed.

1. Alternative Skills

There can be human characters, with no knowledge over Alchemy, naturally. A crystal clear example of that is Riza Hawkeye, one of the best shooters in the Army, yet who posesses absolutely no knowledge over Alchemy, and is a Liutenant regardless. Or Mira Olivier Armstrong, who doesn't use Alchemy either, yet held a high place in the Army. Those two, despite not posessing any knowledge over Alchemy, posess other abilities, that make them equally as good. For example: Mira Olivier Armstrong is incredible with a sword, and Riza Hawkeye is the best shooter in the army.

Obviously, there can be characters like this in this RP too. The Skills template is useless for them, seeing as they do not posess any Transformation or Alchemy abilities, and rely only on a weapon. So, how can those characters fill out a template and create their weapon? It's fairly easy! Non-Alchemists and Non-Chimeras can register their weaponry, if they use any, in the Equipment Registration Area, and work on upgrading that Weapon! Their weapon wouldn't have abilities, as Magical Weapons are forbidden, yet it would deal at Rank damage as the user. Although it seems to be a more limited skill, it is also more interesting, and incredibly useful!

Alchemists and Chimeras can also create weapons, in addition to that, that deal damage equal to a rank below them, however.
