Hullo World!

Shiver me timbers! Winter is upon us! Time to bundle up, get yourself a cup of hot cocoa, and saddle up for some winter adventures!

As the season, we have a handful of events for all you lovely lads and lasses to embody the spirit of the season. First is our spirit of giving and appreciation, smashed together with however it is you and your character feel about the going on’s of the winter wonderland (or maybe they see it as a frozen wasteland?) The Winter Appreciation and Solo Event includes our gift to all of you, and a solo event, to help your characters shine both inside and out! Aside from our usual appreciation bonus, the thread will also offer a bonus for solo’s involving each of your characters!

Also, in the spirit of giving we’re opening a second, or third for those of you that noticed I already combined two in one, event for you to help give back to the site. Our Season of Giving event asks that members give back to the site by donating ideas for missions in exchange for feeling good about themselves, and thus, receiving bonuses.

I suppose that’s all for now my friends. We hope you enjoy the seasons events, and the growth your characters may experience during the winter months!

:Highkick: Combat :Punch:

Combat in HxH RPG is freeform in that players are free to roleplay it in their own way without having to rely on any complicated system which determines whether an attack is a hit or not or how much damage it does. The stats that each character begins with and can improve with SP are only meant as a guideline for players to estimate how powerful several of their character’s physical attributes are. Otherwise, they have no direct impact in a fight. A few rules to keep in mind:

  1. Players must keep their stats in mind when fighting. If there’s a significant difference between one character’s stats and another’s, the one with the higher stat will obviously have the advantage and the other would not be able to keep up with them easily in ordinary fights. Stats are not, however, the only factor in a fight. A weaker character who fights creatively might be a challenge for a stronger opponent despite the disadvantage, but the victor would be obvious if the fight was just a slugfest between the two. Also keep in mind that small differences in stats are just that, small. If one fighter has an agility that is one or two above the opponent, then, while they will be faster, the other fighter will still generally be fast enough to keep up. When it comes to differences of five or more, however, the difference between one's might, agility, etc. becomes more noticeable.

  2. Players are expected to be fair when fighting other PCs. Auto-hitting, which basically means roleplaying as if any attacks one’s character throws at another hits them without giving them the chance to respond, is not allowed. At the same time, the person who the attack is directed at is expected to be realistic when responding- simply dodging anything thrown at you is a sign of bad roleplaying and is frowned upon.

  3. Similar to auto-hitting, you cannot kill other players’ characters without their permission. Many have put a lot of work into their characters and would not be happy if someone simply killed him or her off without consent.

  4. Rules 2 and 3 can be overlooked to a certain degree in certain narrated threads. In this case, a player is giving the narrator a certain degree of control over what occurs and the narrator is permitted to give a character an injury in order to increase the difficulty, punish them for poor decisions, or to move the plot. This is only to be used reservedly, however, as narrators are discouraged from using this power too consistently without reason. Killing off characters is still not allowed unless it meets one of the conditions listed here. In any case, however, actually killing off characters through these means is NOT something to be done on any sort of whim. In-roleplay warnings like injuries should be given (sometimes repeatedly) beforehand, and characters should be given the opportunity to run from fights which they realize they are unlikely to win.

Explanation of the Role of Stats:

  • Might: Increases a character’s strength, lifting capacity, and ability to deal physical damage.

  • Agility: The more agile the character, the faster they are and the higher his ability to dodge or maneuver.

  • Accuracy: The higher the character’s accuracy, the higher his chances to land a hit or to block an attack as well as the greater his dexterity and precision becomes; very important even in close combat. Higher accuracy also translates to more honed senses such as sight, hearing, or smell.

  • Endurance: The higher the Endurance the longer he can fight and the more damage he can take before passing out or dying. Endurance also translates to one's Potential Aura Power (PAP) - how much total aura a person can use before losing consciousness or dying. The higher someone's AAP (equal to Aura Stat) is, the more of their PAP they can expend at one time. Every time an attack with aura is thrown, that amount of aura is subtracted from their PAP, and some aura is lost from the PAP over time when maintaining Ren/Ken as well.

  • Aura: The amount of aura one can produce at once. Even when one is not aware of nen, the aura stat is helpful in absorbing minor amounts of damage so long as it is not being suppressed through Zetsu. When nen is awakened, the standard nen techniques become more powerful as more points are put into it.

    The Aura stat parallels the Actual Aura Potential (AAP) described by Knuckle in the series - basically how much aura a user can emit from their body for attack/defense at once. It's essentially how much aura you have to move about your body with when using Ken/Ryuu. Something to note is that the use of hatsu also counts towards that total, so any case where aura is separated from one's body (emitting nen, manipulating objects, conjuring an item) will reduce the strength of their Ken slightly.

    Aura, such as when used through ren, does not act as a buff to the other stats depending on how high this stat is. Activating ren might make one able to draw out more of his or her latent physical abilities without hurting themselves, thus making them able to move faster or hit harder than normally, but this would not change much no matter how high their aura stat is. The main point of ren and most other nen techniques (and what becomes stronger as the aura stat increases) is that it’s more like a weapon rather than something that increases how much damage one can withstand, how fast they can move, or how hard they can punch. If you put your aura into your fist then punch someone in the gut, then the aura itself will simply damage whatever it comes into contact with unless the target puts enough aura around their gut to negate it. Same for blocking non-nen enhanced attacks/projectiles- the aura just acts like a shield which helps negate impacts, not let someone withstand more serious injuries or last longer like the endurance stat. The other four stats are still just as important when determining physical ability even in nen fights.

Posted ImageDeath
Death © Hunter אּ Hunter RPG 2009-2017

Under normal circumstances a character can't die (nor can he sustain serious injury with lasting after effects). That is he can't unless the player decides to allow it. This is a system that is easily able to be abused with characters taking unrealistic risks because the player knows than nothing can happen to the char unless he wants to. To prevent this there are three conditions. If at least one of these is met the character can die without the players consent. In any case, however, actually killing off characters through these means is NOT something to be done on any sort of whim by a narrator. In-roleplay warnings like injuries should be given (sometimes repeatedly) beforehand, and characters should be given plenty of opportunities to run from fights if they are unlikely to win. Character death is only a punishment to be delivered as a last resort if participants of a mission continues to violate the following rules.

  • Unqualified: Accepting a mission or taking part in a storyline which he is obviously unqualified for, and continuing to partake in it even if the character is easily overwhelmed or heavily injured. While there are times where death would be a reasonable retribution for a high-level mission, it is highly recommended that the narrator simply force the character to retire and declare the mission failed rather than killing him off.

  • Stupidity: The character steps of a cliff, hugs a bomb or tries to fight a much stronger enemy without any sort of plan that sort of thing...

  • Backlash: The char has chosen certain conditions which will cause his death if not fulfilled and he has failed to fulfill them.

:Card: Consumable Rules

Whenever a player uses a consumable, AKA a one-use item that they possess in their inventory, often obtained from events or purchased in a Token Shop, during a thread- they must note at least the name of the item at the bottom of the post they use/activate it in so that the grader can take note of what is used and list every consumable used by each character at the end of the thread. Failure to make a note of the item that is being used or using an item that is not in the character's inventory or else is in the used consumable list can result in a deduction to the character’s rewards from a thread.

In their post, the grader will note which consumables each character in the thread used. All members must remove used consumables from their inventory whenever they make their next adjustment and archive mods are expected to remind them if they forget. .

Other Rules:
  • Nen Candy: One cannot consume more than 1 piece of candy of a single color at a time.
