General disthread for Labyrinth, where we will design cutebolds etc.

This quest is sort of an already planned out module, and any mechanics questions will also be answered here.

First off, does anybody want to design some village bolds? Give me a color, a name, and some basic clothing or accessories. You can also suggest up to three kobold related skills or change their appearance (such as head shape)if you want to give them a more loaf-shaped (generally male) or dome-shaped (generally female) head, erase/change teeth, etc. I'll need about a dozen or so kobolds in the end and I'll take any designs that aren't completely ridiculous. They will have access to stolen materials mostly, and tend to produce clothing from grass and plant fibers, as well as possibly hides/leather if there's a leather making kobold which I haven't decided on. Here's a male template to get started.

Basically if you want a background character or possible future party member this is your chance. Kobolds are grey to brown-grey colored and range from dark to light in shade. I color their nose pink but that doesn't have to be the case always.

Make sure the bold's fur color is visible!

This is the female template

I'm no artist, but a village and/or party needs a 'bold who makes some good fishing spears from wood. Light grey is a good ascetic as any. I guess he would use a decent metal knife (stolen) to make said spears. Uhhhh big straw hat? That's all I got, dunno if that works for ya, boss.

Ruffles The Chefbold! Will try and cook anything a couple of times.
If stealing a pan is too hard, a simple wooden spear to make food on a stick is just as fine.

Or if cooking is already full, Smectyx Potter/Mud bold! will make messy pots and jug/ mud pies, walls, or other simple mud things.

Color: Steely Gray
Age: Yes
Name: Old Bold Corta
Unboldsmanlike Conduct Swords But No Legs Bane of Whippersnappers

Once, there was a kobold girl who went to see the world! She ended up working for some goblins in cave, doing cave-related business and making a semi-honest cave-related living.

But then the cave was attacked by adventurers! Everyone in the cave died, while only one of the adventurers bit the dust. The rest wandered off arguing about loot and whether caves could be counted as fabric for the purposes of some spell or another.

Left in the classic Adventurer Victimpile, Old Bold Corta managed to survive, albeit without her legs. She picked up the adventurer's swords and now uses them to walk around by holding them in her hands like canes.

She is the oldest and angriest bold known! Her hobbies include stopping whippersnappers from going out on adventures, teaching people about the perils of cave business, and knowing lots about lots of unusual things. Often criticized for having picked up non-boldlike behaviors during her travels. Also for having swords but no legs.

Good at swordfighting, though not as much as you'd think.

Calls youngsters 'fewmets' when she's upset.

Should be fairly self explanatory, kobolds will roll these for some checks or to see if they can do a thing. Figuring out the brain on the drug pamphlet was a brain was a check against their knowledge, for instance.

Every 'bold has their own set of skills. Most of the skills are interchangeable and can be learned by anybody. Special powers can only be learned by magic or other means and can't be taught to other kobolds.
Slashing, Piercing, Crushing, Brawling, etc are all melee fighting skills. Throwing is used for sling use as well as throwing other things.
Speed is basically action points in combat and may also be checked against in certain situations
carry Is the carry limit, a chest is 5 pts and a bag is 1
HP Hitpoints, how many wounds a kobold can take
Fatigue Used for several things. Combat, powers, and attacking use fatigue.
Health How healthy a kobold is, used to check against poisons/sickness or other things. A barrel is 20pts, a basket is 10, an apple is 2
Madness, Terror. Rolled against when a kobold has to take a check for seeing something that breaks reality or is terrifying. Goes up on a failure, and also acts as resistance for future madness/terror checks. Kobolds start behaving erraticly if either one gets too high.

weapons Damage, and action cost Maybe also ammo.

The only skill that everyone can learn at the moment that nobody has is

The biogun uses the user's Fatigue as ammunition and can be used to learn the Handgun skill without wasting ammunition for something else.
I will spend points according to what people suggest. Raising stats is the most costly. Raising powers gets more costly as the level goes up. Raising skills costs more after every 5 points invested in the skill.

The point of this between thread activity is to suggest what kobolds should train in as the quest progresses. Suggestions do not need to be super specific or can go into detail with specific skills/stats

:oubliss:Oubliss is now OP after getting stat increases from a wish, and is almost as good as an average human or dwarf. She can do a lot of damage due to her high strength but isn't particularly skilled in anything but spears. Her favorite color is Purple
No. 120234 ID: ed67d9

Tronklis: - Psychometry. Well-rounded skills and stats means that we pump points into his power.
Oubliss: - Dexterity. This, paired with her strength, will make her more adept at being essentially our goofball kobold assassin ninja.
Slorsnis: - Willpower. We can't afford to let our healer go crazy! She's the lynchpin.
Kloldril: - Perception. Having a 'bold who can spot threats is gonna be a godsend.
No. 120236 ID: c4809e

These all sound pretty good for the bolds to have, Tronklis could practice his Psychometry on the small gear they have or the questionable water basins.
Oubliss would juggle Toilet paper rolls or urinal cakes to get some more dex.
Slorsnis would take a nice nap or have relaxing chats.
And Kloldril can just practice playing I spy in the infinibathroom.

Shouldn't Oubliss have 5 chests? Her carry limit is 25. Kloldril should have 3 chests since his carry limit is 15.

Also holy crap that whip is stronger than I expected. I figured it would do shitty damage, but it's twice as strong as the hand axe??? Maybe the hand axe is more like a wood chopping tool than a weapon. What are the stats on the iron knife compared to the combat knife?

What is the Art.Weapon skill for?
No. 120254 ID: 3d336d

Carry weight shows wrong stats for Oubliss and Kloldril
Dexterity should be related to Speed. Tronklis and Oubliss have the same Dexterity, but Oubliss is much faster.
Tech and Magic should be skills, not stats.
If a stat is temporarily increased/decreased or not at max, then it should be indicated what the current/original/max is supposed to be.
What's the difference between Brawling and Wrestling? Do they even need to be separate skills?
Who can do Lockpicking?
Why is a 9mm pistol damage so weak?
What is weapon damage before and after applying skills/stats?
Where is sling damage? I think it would be better to show a list of weapons/damage/type/ammo in a separate sheet. And armor stats.

In general, I think it would be better to simplify a lot of these stats.

Yes, I can't count.

>Also holy crap that whip is stronger than I expected. I figured it would do shitty damage, but it's twice as strong as the hand axe???

It does do shitty damage but her strength is ridiculous.

>Maybe the hand axe is more like a wood chopping tool than a weapon. What are the stats on the iron knife compared to the combat knife?

It does decent damage but her strength is shit. The stats on everything are different depending on who is using them! I'm not going to get too into the combat mechanics but whenever there's a fight I run several rounds at a time then just draw what's most relevant. The knives are functionally the same, tronklis deals 2 damage with it but Oubliss would deal 4

>What is the Art.Weapon skill for?
Articulated Weapons, So you don't tangle yourself up in your own whip/chain/flail, etc. Without it you can end up hitting yourself in combat if you fuck up badly enough.

>Carry weight shows wrong stats for Oubliss and Kloldril
Yes it does

>Dexterity should be related to Speed. Tronklis and Oubliss have the same Dexterity, but Oubliss is much faster.

It is not the only factor

>Tech and Magic should be skills, not stats.
Not in this setting.

>If a stat is temporarily increased/decreased or not at max, then it should be indicated what the current/original/max is supposed to be.
It is!

>What's the difference between Brawling and Wrestling? Do they even need to be separate skills?
Striking vs holds. Also things like punch daggers use brawling

>Who can do Lockpicking?
It's not a seperate skill in the system I'm using and I forgot to actually add it as one even though I meant to.

>Why is a 9mm pistol damage so weak?
Stoppin powah

>What is weapon damage before and after applying skills/stats?
Based off of the HtH damage stat which is hidden

>Where is sling damage? I think it would be better to show a list of weapons/damage/type/ammo in a separate sheet. And armor stats.

Oops, I forgot that too, 1/2 - 1 heart (one to two points of damage)

>In general, I think it would be better to simplify a lot of these stats.
I did, there's a bunch of derived stats and social stats that I left hidden because they aren't very pertinent. I'm using a very simulationist system and this is about half the numbers involved with things. It's not really necessary for the running of the quest, I am doing most of the book keeping myself and using suggestions as a guideline for where to take the characters rathing than asking for suggestions for very specific builds.

Let me just say what happened in that last combat was ridiculous.

The first update represents about 8 or 10 rounds of melee with the wheelmen and foundryman just slugging it out. The foundryman has a lot of armor they have to get through first, but they have what's basically a force field that he has about a 50% chance of getting through.
Everything is being rolled with percentile dice, and this is what I posted on discord about it:

ok. So the first thing I roll was a 40
on percentile.
To figure out hit location I do like WHFRP and reverse the numbers, which comes to 004 making it a head shot
they have a 30% chance to hit because that's the close range bonus of the guns they have
so when shooting into a melee there's a chance you'll hit an ally if you miss, which he did. So I determined which one it was randomly and it was the one with 2hp left, although that would have also instantly killed the one at full health as well if it got through his defense field.
Kloldril shot next, he missed with a 50 something, then rolled a 99 which is kind of like a crit fail but then there's around a 20% chance the gun will jam on top of it, which I rolled a 12 for
slorsnis easily hit the guy but didn't even begin to penetrate armor at that location, and oubliss just completely missed everything
Then I rolled ANOTHER head shot in melee and it broke through his defense field as well so rip

I am using a different program while I'm away from my main computer, if people prefer this style I can change to it permanently or go back to how I was doing it before. Do people prefer this https://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/src/151836830073.jpg
or this?

I definitely like the first one better as well.
No. 120549 ID: 006e5c

I think both styles are more or less the same. However, I'd choose the first (newer one) because the lines are a bit thinner, and thus they will produce a bit more detail.

But thinner lines also means a bit more work. As such, I'd guess the newer style is a tiny bit slower to draw with.
