Okay... but I gotta ask a question about that latest build. It appears you put at least one point into every college skill; therefore, you wouldn't have to depend on any defaults from the Core skill. So couldn't you then reduce Thaumatology even further and free up a bunch of points there?

I suggest we use "Game Time +0%" from Powers

Neat -- thanks for pointing that out.

But I feel that fails to take into account the time dilation that occurs with tabletop combat. So how about something a bit more generous: For each "per hour" usage, you get two potential uses per game-day, but one can only be used in-combat, the other can only be used out-of-combat.
Fair?

I've got a meta-game suggestion that might help ensure the game survives, a weekly character point award. Give everyone that posts at the required interval (I vote for daily) a bonus character point each week and then possibly give out an additional bonuses for stuff like "post of the week".

This incentivizes player participation and keeps the game fresh by allowing character growth weekly like would happen in a table top game instead of having to wait possibly months in the online environment.

What do you think?

Sometimes it doesn't make sense for people to post though. See Worlds of Fire, my character is out, and hence not posting.

Since we have a few different magic systems going on I might as well through in imbuements :) I will use the mystic Knight template for this character (taking what I had made so far and shifting it)

Yeah, I'll let you guys do your magic thing. Bardy is sounding good, but I'm gonna shift some skills around (want to include Bow).

I like the basic concept a lot... but if this were applied strictly people would feel forced to post daily even when there was nothing their character could do. We'd have to come up with a method that was fair to all.

And, of course... I never did allow weekly character advancement anyway :)

cool character -- by "path of gate" I assume you mean Crossroads?

Also, regarding equipment...
Might I suggest Personal Basics just to cover your behind?
And I never go camping without a knife, but that's just me.
And I notice you didn't take any tools to go with that high lockpicking skill... you shifty priestess, you :P
And, um... you might wanna pick up some arrows & a quiver to go with that bow.
