    Where I train @Keaton in the fine and subtle art of BS. :P

    Hi! Welcome to the board! I see you're starting an RP with Obs, which is great. I took a look at your character sheet, and it seems you've already got the gist of what sort of character Keat is. That's good, it'll help the BS flow smoothly from what you've already established in the RP.

    So, before we start, it's important to make sure you've already read through the BS manual. It's located here. I'm going to act as your guide, bringing the words from the page (or screen, I guess) to... well, not reality, but a more understood screen. I guess. Point is, I'm here to bring it all together, answer questions, and put the BS into practice. Explaining post by post what the tenants are, what the combat skills are, etc. won't be a good use of our time, you know? But if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. It's what I'm here for! l(:D)

    So, with that done, I ask: Keaton, thou who cometh before the gate of the great and complex Battle System, hast thou read the document linked in the above paragraph?

    Huzzah! Then the next thing to do is try out character creation. Go ahead and make a level one starter sheet for Keaton. Don't worry too much about "this skill or this skill"- nothing we do here is set in stone. If you're on the fence, this is a good time to experiment! We're not going to put points in anything yet; right now we're going to choose our Archetype name, its Tenant, and its Combat and Utility Skills. The "building your archetype" post in the BS Manual should be a big help.

    Here's my character Rachel at Level 1 with no points assigned:

    Name: Rachel Tosh
    Archetype Name: Field Historian
    Archetype Tenet: Wisdom
    Archetype Combat Skills: Inspiration and Natural Affinity
    Archetype Utility Skills: Charisma and Arcana
    Tenets:
    Power: 1
    Wisdom: 2
    Courage: 1
    Combat Skills:
    Aim 2
    Inspiration 2
    Natural Affinity 2
    Utility Skills:
    Arcana 2
    Charisma 2

    6 Combat Points and 8 Utility Points left

    Let me know if you need any help with anything! c:

    I do apologize for the interjection, but we do require @Quill to finish his training before taking on someone else. Keaton, we do apologize for the wait but our Battle System is mostly ready but our staff is still training firstly before we train the rest of the site. I do apologize profusely for this inconvenience and if you have any problems, please feel free to contact Mana or one of the two gentlemen who created the Battle system which is CanadianNay or Eraz.

    Hey! Sorry about that, Keaton. Let's get back to business!

    Yes, that's a great start. Now let's take those archetype skills and give them their starting points, shall we? Remember that all Tenets start at 1. Your Archetype Tenet starts at 2. Aim and Archetype skills start at 2, but all other skills start at 0- don't worry, we won't bother listing skills we have 0s in here. You may want to show it in Your Official BS Sheet, but for now, let's just show the things we have points in.

    So, it should look like:

    Name: Rachel Tosh
    Archetype: Field Historian
    Archetype Tenet: Wisdom
    Archetype Combat Skills: Inspiration and Natural Affinity
    Archetype Utility Skills: Arcana and Charisma
    Tenets
    Power 1
    Wisdom 2
    Courage 1
    Combat Skills
    Aim 2
    Inspiration 2
    Natural Affinity 2
    Utility Skills
    Arcana 2
    Charisma 2

    See how I did that? Let me know if you have any questions.

    Yep! Good job. Now let's add the 6 Combat Points and 8 Utility Points for character creation. You can add points to any skill or tenet you want as long as you don't boost a tenet more than once at creation or push a skill past three at creation. Remember that you can't push a skill past double its Tenet value (so a Wisdom of 1 and a Healing of 3 is no bueno) and that you can boost a Tenet by using one Utility and one Combat point. Here's how Rachel looks after spending these points. I left marks after the Tenets and Skills to show how I worked them.

    Rachel Tosh
    Level 1 Field Historian (Wisdom)
    Combat Skills: Inspiration and Natural Affinity
    Utility Skills: Arcana and Charisma

    Tenets:
    Power: 1
    Courage: 2 (-1U, -1C)
    Wisdom: 3 (-1U, -1C)

    Combat Skills:
    Aim: 3 (-1C)
    Inspiration: 2
    Natural Affinity: 3 (-1C)
    Debilitation: 2 (-2C)

    Utility Skills:
    Awareness: 2 (-2U)
    Charisma: 3 (-1U)
    Tenacity: 2 (-2U)
    Arcana: 3 (-1U)

    (Then, because she has Points in NA...)

    Natural Affinity Summon
    Level 1
    25 HP
    8 Defense
    15ft Movement
    3k3 Accuracy
    1k1 Damage

    Let me know if you have any questions
