Indeed BB. Again, game terms can sometimes be confusing, whether it's a very active player with a Passive Class in Sburb or a smart guy with low low-ish Int in DnD.

As for Kanaya, I've said it before, it's tricky, because we don't really know enough about her to say it for sure. We are basing it on one thing because we don't really have a lot of other things to base it on. Heck, most of the stats are just speculations. The thing is that the computer interactions is more likely to point towards low Int then it is pointing towards high Int. But heck, it was a single occasion, for all we know she might have simply rolled a 1 on her dice and fucked it up because of that. Maybe her Str sucks and she just rolled a lot of Nat 20s when it came to Strength related rolls. But since we've seen her take a lot more Str based actions then Int based ones, it's more clear that her Str seems to be high. In the end it's all speculation though, so feel free to post some stats that you think would be fitting.

As for your creator, yeah, lets talk about that tomorrow.

In any case, you can only apply as much logic to a computer program as its designer put into it.

Though just to clear things up (and because I'm now worried I might have to rework my wizard to give him higher Wis), when you say Int is based in learning and memory, you don't mean literally just knowing stuff right? It's more about...coming to a solution via a set of rules you know to be true. While Wis is more about hunches and common sense without bothering with trivial details and needless explanations.

I would like to come up with an example to illustrate the difference but it's kind of late here so I'll just hope that makes sense.

(Also for riding, besides Tavros and Eridan, we've also seen Feferi ride a seapony and Gamzee rides a unicicle.)

Generally anything a wizard does will only ever require INT. They do work stuff out using the logic they learn, but that's why they're scholars who spend lots of time doing research and writing formulae, they aren't as good at doing it in their heads on the spot as say a Cleric, even though the Cleric tends to have less knowledge.

One very good example is looking at a Wizard vs a Druid in the wild. A Wizard can have a way higher Knowledge(Nature) and be just as focused on nature as the Druid, but the Druid would still be better at finding food and tending to plants because the Wizard spends more time thinking about how to do it.


If it's roleplaying that involves WIS, you can just pin the difference between RP and stats on whatever you call how you always feel smarter when talking about something than taking a test on it.

One way it is often compared is that Int is about book smart while Wis is about street smart. Also, your character has average Wisdom and high Int, so it's not like his Wisdom is low or anything.

But yeah, defining exactly what one stat can or can't do is a bit tricky with the mental stats.

Maybe you could tell us a bit more about what you want your character to do that you now worry his Wis might be too low?

Physically Kanaya is very strong. Using a chainsaw as a weapon is not an easy feat and her chainsaw looks heavy. Despite this she is pretty fast with it.
High STR is a given for her considering her feats like kicking Gamzee into the air and into the abyss, snatching the wwhite wwand of science from Eridans hand and breaking it.
She also could have the ability to turn into other beasts.
Human vampires can transform into bats and wolves. Rainbow drinkers could do something similar. Maybe. It would be cool in any case.

About reviving falling characters:
If it is not to hard in the beginning we should be able to find a way to revive dead party members before we encounter the larger challenges.

EDIT:

Sorry, I didn't notice we were on new pages.
Is the talk of Kanaya as a character in D&D still relevant?

Well, as I said, switch int and wis, since we've seen her screw up on wis a LOT more than once, so there's more evidence that she's got a low stat.

While her behavior does indicate low Wis, a strong resistance to fear usually implies a high Wis, not only because of an implied high Will save but also because high Wisdom helps against Intimidation checks. Though I suppose she could have somehow become immune to fear or something.

As for reviving, that's going to be difficult. Actually reviving a dead character is very expensive at early levels. Simply put, chances are you won't actually revive anyone untill you hit level 5 or so. If a character dies before that, they will likely simply stay dead.

So yeah, try to not die, though if you do, you'll likely need a new character.

Well...
Did anyone consider Kanayas abilities as a dressmaker?

It could be a steady source of income for her.

Mather included a "Craft(Clothing)" among her skills, so yes, it was considered. What does her income have to do with anything though?

One possible reason is simply that after about 200 years of war, most if not all of them might have been destroyed by now.

I managed to contact eZ and they still want to join. They are fixing their character sheet now and think about what to do with it. Once the sheet is fixed they plan to post here to discuss how they can fit into the group. However, from what we talked about so far, I think it would be perfect if Urmelena and eZs character, Kallistos, who is a Cleric, to already be in a team together. They have similar goals (fighting evil guys) though have different approaches (Kallistos is Chaotic Good) and I personally find the idea of a Lawful Good Drow Paladin and a Chaotic Good Half-Elf Cleric working together to fight evil guys to be a buddy cop movie waiting to happen. Plus, if Urmelena and Kallistos are already a team, Urmelena has an additional argument to convince the group to let them join.

Who is eZ again?
Well, I like the idea. And I was the person who suggested getting a cleric in the first place.

So, yes but I want to talk with eZ about the backstory of our two characters in that regard personally.

And if it is like a buddy-cop thing I demand that every person who is retiring stays in a bunker until the retirement is complete.
Also my favourite buddy-cop-movie is "Ozzy & Drix".

Hello 'vrybody! Sorry I've kind of ignored the topic for a long while. I had to read some good 22 pages of backlog in order to catch up but I'm here now. And I'll keep my eyes open.

So! Let's see. First off, I guess I'll dump Kallistos' sheet here. Have a read. It still has some stuff missing/wrong/that will be changed (most importantly, Pelor vs Corellon Larethian, still have to choose), so yeah, it's WIP. Just fyi.

As for Kallistos' backstory, Ralte, it's at the bottom of the sheet (you can also find his personality and physical description, which you should read), but I'll copypaste it for you under a spoiler. It's still quite subject to change, as well. Possibly major changes.
Kal's BG:
 

As for the buddy-cop plan, what can I say, I love it. I guess we'll have to plan how they become such, though, right? And then all of Kal's clerical services are yours. The urgent need to take refuge into a bunker is also yours.

Hello Eunomic Zenith.
How are you?
I may be your partner… Well, our characters will be partners in any case.
I think she would accept somebody who killed a bastard of a father eventually.
But what about his mother?
Did Kallistos leave her behind without nothing?
Also it seems likely for me that those criminals from that organisation may emerge for some revenge.

Anyhow:
Yes, both can be partners. Urmelena is probably not so disillusioned by the law because she knows how to work with it. She would be at odds with him over some things but she would accept it, especially if it revolves around stopping slavers.

Exactly, two good people, fighting for good, and while they don't always agree on the methodes, they ultimately work together. Buddy cop movie.

Also, I am talking with eZ and some stats and stuff are being changed around because eZ decided to focus on melee for Kallistos. So Kallistos will probably mainly focus on buff spells with some healing if needed. Oh, and Kallistos is a Cleric of Corellon Larethian, the god of the Elves, instead of Pelor now.
