I am trying to hash out the remaining character creation stuff at the moment. The Species and Quirks are almost done - some helpful RPG people are looking it over at the moment to make sure I don't embarrass myself too much when I show them to you guys.
Anyway, today I am working on the two primary magic using Callings in Break!!. Note that these aren't the only ones there will be ever, just the ones that will be in the main book. I suspect this blog will see a lot of use to trickle out supplemental material later on.
Anyway, the two Callings are;
Magic lives within the Caster. Spells inhabit their hearts and souls, usually manifesting within them as children and growing as they do. With intense training and force of will, Casters are able to shape the forces that dwell in their bodies into intense displays of power.
Casters take many forms, with an image and personality often influenced by their chosen Paths of magic and the duology or solidarity that comes from them. Casters are a good calling for players who don’t mind a bit of paperwork and like to use familiar powers and abilities to solve the problems they encounter.
The Rune Blader
Rune Bladers are a special breed. Their feet are planted firmly in two worlds - the disparate realms of sword and spell. Using a forgotten language as a conduit for their magic, they are able to enhance their formidable combat prowess and unleash powerful magical bursts when the need arises.
Rune Bladers are a good calling for players who don't mind keeping track of things and like having an answer for every situation. They may also be called Rune Crushers or Rune Shooters, depending on the weapon they employ.
Rather than going with anything familiar to me game wise, I opted to take ideas I liked and sort of build character types around them from the ground up. I'll admit it's a lot harder than I thought it would be, but I am confident the end result will be good.
The Rune Blader may be my favorite after Battle Princesses - it emphasizes the Give/Take parts of the better than any of the others.
