    20 KB Henshin! The Tokusatsu RPG Anonymous 11/08/10(Mon)17:53 No.12728455  
    Continued discussion on "Henshin! The Tokusatsu RPG", which is the current working title since it's...well, the only title suggested so far.

    Yeah, I'd say it's best to start small, and make it inherently playable.

    Riders tend to be the most distinct from one another- You know, Double and Accel, Faiz and Kaixa, Ryuuki and Knight and so on. A Sentai team has a more common origin, so there's much less room for customization.

    I'm pretty sure you could run an Ultraman game using the rules for Adeptus Evangelion, to be completely honest.

    I'd like to inquire as to Character Generation. A point-buy system seems to make the most sense to me...Though we need to define what you can spend your points on. Stats, Techniques, Equipment?


    A typical gaming group has, what, three or four people? That's slightly more than the usual number of riders, who tend to be two or three per series, but not implausible. (Ryuuki had *thirteen* Riders.) The episodic format lends itself well to roleplaying.

    I imagine most of the points will be dumped into Rider suit abilities and powers. Techniques don't really come into play, I think, except for finishers. Same with equipment - any gear is usually used for a specific power. I think it's best to focus on stats and a wide array of powers.

    Okay, here's a theory. I really, really like the 'origins' idea- A lot. In an idea taken from City of Heroes and Deathwatch, maybe each origin has it's own pool of upgrades?

    I think that for now, the Organic Evolution, Cybernetics, Equipment (Handheld Item) and Ancient Magic origins are the most distinct- The rest can come later. Let's see...

    Organic Evolution pays slightly less to upgrade raw stats. (Your body grows to be stronger/faster/bulkier and so on.)

    Equipment purchases weapons/gadgets cheaper; It's not uncommon for all this stuff to be 'built-in' as you learn how to use what you have better.

    Cybernetics purchases techniques for less of a point cost; Their bodies are modified to channel power better.

    Magic can purchases the more esoteric techniques- Effectively Rider 'magic', though that's rather rare- for less of a price.

    Or, it might all be simply flavorful; In-series, most Riders spring from the same source for each one. In Faiz, everyone used Gears, while in Double, everything sprang from Gaia Memories.
    >> Anonymous 11/08/10(Mon)18:26 No.12728789

    True. I guess there's no mechanical difference between a Shocker Rider's hand-blast, the gunshots fired by the various 'shooty' Riders like Zolda, Drake or Delta, and so on.

    I actually meant, though, a different between Powers and Techniques- Powers would be attacks like an electric slash, or Faiz's knuckleduster punch; Techniques would be more like 'feats', that grant minor bonuses.

    Thinking about it- Momentum actually reminds me of Modern Warfare's killstreak system, where kills let you 'cash in' for rewards.

    As for loot; Rider shows aren't big on loot, for several reasons. Unless 'loot' is explicitly part of the series- Like Blade sealing Undead, or...Well, basically just Blade sealing Undead- there's no reason to take anything. Rider equipment is infinitely better than whatever a kaijin is using, not to mention most of it was 'built-into' the kaijin, anyway, and blows up when they die.

    Gaia Memories shatter when the Dopant sucks a Memory Break. Ryuuki riders killed monsters for 'energy'- Ouja yoinked the Contract Monsters of others, but he was a unique case. They didn't take each other's cards. Faiz had the belts passed around...But I suggest not doing this to the players. It'd be an incredibly frustrating game if you did that.

    So, there's not real 'point' of loot in-game; I guess if you, say, grabbed an enemy's sword and beat him with it, you could use it to the end of the episode, until it breaks/shatters/whatever, or spend XP to purchase it as your own power. Or maybe it just has limited uses 'this episode'- I suggest they vanish at the end of the episode, to prevent players from hoarding, anyway.

    Generally, Riders don't bother with taking stuff from their enemies/from mooks; It's like a soldier taking an insurgent's cheap AK-47 knockoff, when he's already using a state-of-the-art rifle.

    This is similar to OWoD's Orpheus, where if you paid XP for a ghostly Artifact, you kept it as a Background. Of course, in this case, you get to redesign the item and so on, and it'd make a nice trophy.
    >> Anonymous 11/08/10(Mon)18:51 No.12729060
    I've been thinking about powers and how they could get complicated very quickly, so I think the safest way to approach them is having an array of effects you can buy ranks in and keeping things as cosmetic as possible. Fundamentally, as mentioned earlier, not many attacks differ from each other in function. However, since Riders are going to be fighting a lot, there needs to be a variety of effects so they can create different powers to play with.

    Just gonna toss this out there for a variety of reasons:

    Why make the rules overly specific for Riders when it's supposed to be Tokusatsu? Why not make a ruleset that encompasses the feel of the genre and adapt it as needed to fit the different varieties instead of making it only for one and retrofitting it to work with others?

    It's best to start small. Also, Riders are the most distinctive, with the largest role for differences between characters. None of the Kabuto Riders are alike, for example, and Ryuuki has thirteen similar-but-distinct ones.

    This takes card of the Zord summoning problem, then - since a team usually works together to bring out Zords, summoning one has a huge Momentum requirement, and thus the team can pool them together. We should also let Riders do that, but only if they both have a special Advantage that allows them to work closely together. For example, in order to manage all of his constant Form switching, Double can pool the Momentum of Shotaro and Phillip together because they're both in-sync.

    Hello /tg/, I am the guy who suggested it originally and am compiling/editing suggestions together. Though in retrospect that makes me sound like I'm trying to seem important.

    For those just joining in, here's what we've got so far: In a nutshell:

    HENSHIN!: THE TOKUSATSU RPG (tentative title)
    Basic gameplay overview: d10/d20-reliant, emphasis on gaining and keeping "Momentum".
    Character creation: Origins/Core stats/Skills presented (Origins lacks a gameplay effect), powers/advantages/defects/abilities/etc discussed with no real consensus on how to go about it. Idea for Finishers presented, like/dislike is fairly split but mostly in favor of like.
    Character development/advancement: Undiscussed.
    Non-combat gameplay: Lightly discussed, people seem interested in the idea of gaining/earning Momentum outside of combat.
    Combat gameplay: Flowchart presented, couple comments about how it seems nifty.
    Items/Lewt: Lightly discussed, mostly dislike.

    Not to intimidate anyone involved in this or anything, but I'll be judging the end result using the baseline of being able to create a character who is able to shoot his car out of a fire truck, while he is still inside the car, and have it slam into the enemy hard enough to destroy them, and come out the other side with nary a scratch.

    And have this be considered to be perfectly sound and valid tactics in-universe.

    ...well it seemed like a good place to shoot for. If it's good enough for Ichigo, after all...

    Combat revolves almost entirely around the concept of Momentum. You use your basic martial arts to build Momentum, which you use to do stylish shit or to save it up for utilizing Equipment. The more Momentum you have in combat, the longer you can use your Equipment to deal more damage to enemies.

    Larger, nastier enemies (representing the Monster of the Week) are unfinishable by normal attacks--they'd only reach 1 HP and stay there, and the only way to completely finish them off would be with your Finisher a la Rider Kicks. Don't finish them off in time, and they regain health.

    Character creation is split into Origin (which lacks gameplay effects at the moment), Capabilities (core stats), Skills, Afflictions (tentative, people seemed fond of the idea of a Flaws/Defects system), Powers (what your Rider can actually DO in combat), and Equipment (what they carry and how they use it).

    - Organic evolution: You were previously a normal human being, but genetic tinkering or a strange disease or just a spurt in evolution has given you powers far beyond mortal comprehension.
    (Example: Kamen Rider Shin, Kamen Rider Gills)
    - Internal Cybernetics: Human blood no longer fills your body. Or perhaps it does. Either way, your body is host to machinery that replace many/all of your squishy internals.
    (Example: Most Showa Kamen Riders)
    - External Armor: You need to physically don your suit. Maybe it's too big or bulky to carry with you or maybe you can whip it out in a flash, but either way it needs to be put on.
    (Example: The FIRST/NEXT Kamen Riders, Kamen Rider G3/G4)
    - Ancient Magic: Mystical abilities from alternate dimensions, from the heavens, or from ancient civilizations...long thought dead, mysterious but powerful, you command them for your purposes.
    (Example: Kamen Rider Agito, Erexion)
    - Handheld Item: Maybe you have a cellphone that summons things, or perhaps an ancient and enchanted armlet, or maybe a simple belt. Either way, activating it summons powerful armor atop you.
    (Example: Most Heisei Kamen Riders, Rescue Heroes, most Super Sentai)
    - Creature Bonding: You work with another being to help you out--together, you're stronger than one. Whether it's fully alive or just barely there, either way it's a sentient being that has chosen you.
    (Example: Ultraman Jack, Kamen Rider Kiva, Kamen Rider Ryuki, Ryukendo)
    - Natural Abilities: Be it because of your alien race, skill in mimicking human forms, or sheer force of will, your transformations and abilities are entirely natural to you.
    (Example: Ultraman Leo, Kamen Rider Hibiki, Lion-Maru, Ambassador Magma)

    - Strength: How well you do in physical hand-to-hand combat. Affects damage.
    - Agility: Your ability to move/leap/dive around effectively both in or out of combat. Affects defenses in combat and acrobatic non-combat rolls.
    - Toughness: How many hits can you take before you're forced back into human form. Affects total HP, like with Constitution.
    - Persistence: Each hit hurts, and each hit hurts bad. But how much does each hit hurt? Affects armor and defenses, reduces incoming damage.
    - Resourcefulness: Of course you can punch and kick. But what else can you do, if the situation doesn't call for it? Affects Skill points and most non-combat rolls.
    - Conviction: Whether you're trying to convince someone of their inner goodness or trying to corrupt someone into following a darker path, you won't get far if you can't influence your way out of a paper bag. Basically how much you're a bro of justice or injustice. Affects Momentum gain/loss and some non-combat rolls.

    Seperated into two branches, Vital Skills and Useful Skills. Vital Skills are the prominent stuff that could really affect gameplay: driving, medical ability, stealth, etc. Useful Skills are the stuff that would be nice to have and provide possible gameplay quirks, but aren't game-changers: alternate languages, obscure knowledge, lockpicking, etc.
    Two separate pools of points, both based off the Resourcefulness stat, so that people can't only buy up Vital stuff.

    POINTS TO SPEND: Resourcefulness * 10

    - Vehicle Handling (Almost every toku hero/villain has a vehicle of some sort, but how well can you handle it or vehicles other than yours?)
    - Medical Ability (Every battle comes with a price, and wounded often need assistance)
    - Stealth (Sometimes wars can be won not with fists and powers, but rather subterfuge)
    - Area Navigation (There are plenty of exotic areas to traverse--caverns, underwater, space, wilderness... Try not to get lost)
    - Discourse (Debating, arguing, lying, intimidation, or a few kind words--you can do it all)
    - Sixth Sense (Sometimes you've got just a bad feeling or a good feeling about things, and things set you off before they reveal themselves)
    - Enhanced Senses (Can you spot the hidden sights? Can you hear the quiet noises? Can you discern a faint smell?)
    - Enemy Evaluation (How well can you figure out your opponents without even engaging them?)
    - Wealth (Not how well off you are, but how much you can blow on repairs, bribes, equipment, or more without raising some eyebrows)
    - Trapworking (Set a trap, disable traps, pick up traps, dismantle traps, spot traps, understand traps...)

    This is the controversial one.

    Finishers are constructed from three different parts: The Build Up (which is the start sequence that activates it), the Action (what leads up to the actual finisher), and the Impact (when/how the blow connects). Each part must be bought separately, each part is optional, you can have multiples of a single part--but it MUST have at least one Impact to be a Finisher.
    The more parts you have to it, the less Momentum you need to actually use it.

    At level one (assuming we go with traditional levels/EXP), characters have only one Finisher. As they advance, however, they can purchase more or expand on a single one.

    Powers and Equipment haven't really been discussed yet, but something that keeps popping up is a point-buy system like in M&M or BESM, where you buy parts of a power instead of a single thing and construct what you'd like.

    Afflictions is also something that keeps on popping up, and is a thematically-fitting and interesting idea--unfortunately, it hasn't been discussed yet as to what gameplay effect they'd have, assuming they'd do anything other than be stumbling block for players.

    One of the biggest troubles we're dealing with is alternate forms--a major thing in modern-day Riders.

    >> Anonymous 11/08/10(Mon)21:32 No.12730980
    Basically, I suggested that you can buy a Form, which is mostly cosmetic and bestows temporary extra powers. These don't cost Momentum to use, but run on Form Points, which drain as you use the Form. They regen slowly, but you can instantly buy some with Momentum as long as you're not already in a form.

    What did BESM do with those? I've never actually read through that RPG.
    >> Anonymous 11/08/10(Mon)21:38 No.12731062
    Basically, BESM had an interesting system for alternate forms.

    For every nine points you spent in ranks in Alternate Form, you gained ten points to spend on building said alternate form.

    So, say you had 200 points to build a character.
    If you bought around 110 points worth of powers for a main form and spent 90 for ten ranks in Alternate Form, you would have 100 points to buy powers for your alternate form.
    You could have your Main form be a melee-heavy brute, then swap on the fly to a Ranged form and snipe away at enemies.

    You wouldn't be as powerful as dudes who invested all 200 points in a single form. But you could DO more.

    That's pretty flow-breaking. At the start of the campaign, that's more extra work for character development that may not be reached for a while.
    In the middle of a campaign, that really just halts all the action and lets people know "Hey, guys, we're gonna kick ass!" and ruins the surprise.

    I like Form Point anon's idea for super forms, but I think it could be streamlined a bit.

    Okay, bear with me; Here's a rather 'indie' idea. A game session follows the structure of a typical episode- The main enemy can't die until the end of it, where you hit him with a finisher.

    Monsters of the week start out tough, with high Energy pools and HP. As the episode progresses, the PCs negate those advantages by building up Momentum, and completing objectives that weaken him. At the end of the episode, they clash, and eventually destroy the now-weakened MOTW.

    Bear in mind- This is a very indie idea. If we're going with a more typical structure, ignore the above.

    Someone has proposed minor effects for the various origins, which I like. One thing- Don't make Combat a 'Skill'. All Riders seem to be equally good at fighting, in-series, as do all monsters. All Skills are non-combat abilities- It's taken for granted you can fight well.

    Also, exactly how does the three-part Finisher affect things? More expensive components = Less Momentum required to pull it off?
    >> Anonymous 11/08/10(Mon)22:12 No.12731448

    How about a Form steadily burns a decent chunk of Momentum per turn? When Momentum hits the negatives, the Form vanishes and you have to regain a set amount of Momentum before you can use it again.

    Sounds rational.

    Are the stats for Rider Form, or normal Form? Is this like Werewolf, where Rider Form has a flat bonus to all stats?

    The easiest way to handle 'Super Form' is that, after a flat limit, the more ranks purchased give you more points to distribute amongst stats and all. But it takes more Momentum/Costs more per turn to transform into it. So you transform later, and have less time in it.

    Like- Faiz Accel. A cheap Super Mode with very limited superspeed, no difference in stats. Contrast that to Trial, which is more of an alternate form- Less Strength, less Toughness, higher Agility, and Superspeed. He even stops swinging his sword around.

    Human stats are fairly low and Rider stats just add on top of normal ones.
    >> Anonymous 11/08/10(Mon)22:22 No.12731588

    So, two parts? First you create your Human form stats. Then, like splats applied in NWoD, you add the Rider characteristics...

    -More points (Like, say 5 - 10?) you can apply only to your physical stats. You can choose to trade in the Rider Form stat points for points to purchase more Techniques, powers and so on. So while Hongo doesn't have the raw stats of some of the other Showa Riders, he's an incredibly skilled and tenacious fighter, for example.

    Rider. Note that Toughness talks about how much punishment you can take before being forced back into normal human form.

    Much like alternate forms, though, we liked the idea of being able to still fight in human form a la many Showa Riders.
    Nothing's cemented yet but the idea of human forms having halved stats (rounded up) went over well, though it doesn't work well for those that shouldn't be able to fight well outside of the suit.

    It depends on the very nature of the rider. Those who were modified, like the Showa ones, don't gain a real boost when they henshin. The other ones should gain a boost or something.

    So, this is a VERY tentative power list, VERY alpha. There's a LOT of room to expand, so feel free to add more to it.

    Power Points to spend are (Strength + Conviction) * 10. To initially buy a power, you need to spend 10 points--to rank it up, you spend 5.
    I haven't written in the gameplay effects, primarily due to how fucking tiny 4chan's entry field is. Some are fairly self-explanatory. The others, well, let's debate how they'd work.


    Super Speed (Be it time slowing, sprinting really fast, or whatever, you can go from place to place in an instant)
    Super Jumping (The default for every toku hero!)
    Vehicle (Who needs fancy powers? This little baby's never failed you before)
    >> Rider RP Guy 11/08/10(Mon)23:40 No.12732635

    Melee - Laser (Blazing beams of energy coating your limbs/weapon)
    Melee - Elemental (Controlling an element of choice through your body/weapon)
    Melee - Normal (Simply using the strength of your body/weapon)
    Melee - Vehicle (Who says combat needs to be on foot? If you're already on your vehicle, no need to step off it--use it against them!)
    Blast - Laser (Erupt beams of energy directly from your limbs or a weapon)
    Blast - Elemental (Launch punishing elements stolen from nature through your limbs or a weapon)
    Blast - Ki (Sheer force of will manifest in punishing attacks through your limbs or a weapon)
    Blast - Vehicle (You have on-board weapons systems ready to fire at any time)


    Human Form (For others, being unhenshined is a death wish. For you, you can keep on battling, albeit at a weaker pace)
    Form Change (NOT SUPER FORM)
    Limb Change (Change specific parts/areas of your body one at a time, rather than the entire thing)
    Size Change (Everyone is, by default, size 4. Each rank lets you shift your size by 1--each rank you shrink gives you +1 Agility and -1 Strength, and vice-versa)

    Communication (Through psionics, technology, magic, or whatever, you can keep speaking with your allies even at a distance)

    Vitality/Battle Continuation (Take a licking, and keep on kickin' for a while, until you fall over and die.)
    Cover (Take damage for an ally.)

    Boost (Burn Momentum to temporarily increase your stats.)
    Perception (Track an invisible opponent.)


    Burning/Poison (Your attack continues to harm the opponent for a while longer.)
    Crippling (No damages, but it blinds or hinders him in some way. Kaixa's X-Field, for one.)

    Strength I think makes since, as it's the main combat stat. Put points in the combat stat, you become better at combat.

    Everyone by default has at least one point in both Strength and Conviction. That means 20 points from the outset. If they want to be any good in combat, they'll be putting more points in strength.
    Let's say someone only puts four points in Strength and none in Conviction. That's 60 points out of the gate, enough to buy six abilities.

    >Fixed Number + Stat + die roll is much better.
    That results in much less points, unless the Fixed Number is pretty high. Maybe * die roll instead of +?

    Double or Faiz are the best all-around series.

    Kabuto is fairly good but its plot peters out near the end stretch and the protagonist is...very...dividing.

    Double is arguably the best series so far, and very solid. I've heard good things about Agito, too, which has several different riders from disparate origins. The lead Rider is technically magical- His counterpart is organic, as is Another Agito. A police officer who actually wears his armor also turns up.

    Ryuuki- The original one, not Dragon Knight- has an interesting PvP premise, and multiple-choice endings. Also, it's a very, very different series- Different in a grimdark way.

    Faiz has the best suit designs- All technological- but way too much drama. I highly recommend the unconnected Faiz movie, Paradise Lost, which has one of the best movie Riders (Who speaks perfect english) of all time.

    In a game like BESM where all main stats are used equally and apply to derived stats, sure.

    But in a game where you have five, or six stats, its the far from fair. Its almost as bad as a flat d20 roll.

    Many of the Riders have a typical he-who-fights-monsters deal, with being of the same type of Origin that the enemies are. Ichigo's enemies were cyborgs as well, Double's enemies were also Gaia Memory users, Den-O's enemies were also Imagin with a host, etc.

    What if the Origins gave a small bonus towards fighting enemies of that same type, due to the character's familiarity with what powers them?

    Shouldn't this basically be a template then?
    Have Vampire Riders, Promethean Riders, Changeling Riders, Hunter Riders, etc... The idea is that a person has somehow been altered, and can call on the power of these "alterations" at times to combat the evil that spawned him.

    Sticking with Kamen Rider for the alpha build.


    It's interesting in that Kamen Rider rarely had any...actual...motorcycle use in combat, though I might be very wrong. The First and the Next has bike chase scenes. Delta and Faiz duel in Jetslingers, while Den-O has trains controlled by motorcycles.

    Fuck Kiva.

    Decade's motorcycle could transform, but he only used it once in the...movie? Double had a few chase scenes.

    Remember, in a Rider series, motorcycle duels are to the *death*. You're not trying to get anywhere, just to kill the other guy. So lots of high-speed sliding, stabbing and so on.

    Here's a random vehicle-related Technique I thought up:

    Dynamic Entry:

    When you enter a scene on your machine, you dismount as a free action- And make a Melee (Vehicle) attack against targets in a straight line.

    Like in THE NEXT when Kazami smashes in through the window and starts kicking people in the way.

    I dunno... I prefer to play riders in some other game. Hell, my GURPS group thought I was an extremely poorly built martial artist for a while. Then we got into full blown monsters and suddenly I point out shtick (HENSHIN) and the upgrades that more than half of my points went into.

    The look on their face when the weakest character kicks the BBEG harder than the guy with futuristic weaponry was hitting by shooting him with plasma weaponry was priceless.

    I've already got a character planned out. He's a gothic-themed Rider, in a way. At one point his wife is killed and it royally pisses him off, spurring his "Vengeance Form". Spiked armor, demonic wings, everything. Later he recommits himself to being a hero of justice and forgives himself for his wife's death, promising to tone down his violent streak and be that beacon of hope the city needs. This evolves Vengeance Form into Justice Form, something more knightlike and his true ultimate potential.

    Then his wife comes back as a kaijin.

    For the absolute bare-minimum skeletal basics? Not much more, really.

    I'm editing and compiling together all of the solid/repeated/agreed-on suggestions into a (barely alpha) character creation .pdf. Once it's done, I'll post it here.
    We've already got an idea as to how combat will flow, we've already got an idea as to character creation/generation, the only real question now is character advancement/development and non-combat play.

    Oh and how/if Monsters should be different, but for bare-minimum rules we could just probably make enemy Riders to fight against.
    >> Anonymous 11/09/10(Tue)21:57 No.12742163
    For character advancement, I'd say we still allow leveling, but only in the sense of upping your ability scores (To simulate the rider getting more experienced and stronger as he fights)

    Then of course there's the upgraded form... which I don't think has been decided on how we should handle yet.
    >> Anonymous 11/09/10(Tue)22:11 No.12742296

    I think tossing the players a point or so after part of an adventure is finished sounds best. They can use it immediately to upgrade a stat or power if they want.

    As for non-combat play, I assume rolling against Skills or Stats is good enough, influenced by using Momentum to make things awesome. In those cases, maybe spending Momentum adds extra bonuses to the roll so there's still a chance of failure, although enough justice in a tight situation should be an auto-success because the Rider refuses to give up, not now!

    Maybe that tier list thing could come into it.
    Those represents the character levels, with 1 being a Fledgeling (sic, it's actually Fledgling) Hero, 5/10 being Upgraded Hero, and 10/20 being a Master Hero?
    Each level nets you more upgrade points for your capabilities/skills/powers/finisher.

    Here's a thought- Monsters of the Week need to be, in general, more powerful than a Rider. It's the same problem as in most games; Multiple people are whaling on him at the same time- Maybe he gets bonuses to match the number of people who are attacking him? Because it appears that when a secondary Rider is introduced, fights get much, much harder for the two, even when they work together...But conversely, a Rider can still solo a monster.

    I'll give the example of Weather, who's an absolute beast of a kaijin, versus Double and Accel. He beats them multiple times, but it's ultimately Accel Trial, alone, who takes him down.

    A quick-and-dirty 'scaling-up' system sounds good. The PCs still have the advantage thanks to their superior numbers and/or the fact they can make the enemy suck a Double Rider Kick, but he should be at least able to stand up to them.

    Barring Weather- The Rose Orphenoch? The 1988 King from Kiva? How about...Decade's Apollo Geist and Kamen Rider Odin? All of those guys needed several Riders to take them on at once.

    >> Anonymous 11/10/10(Wed)09:36 No.12746816

    Simplest way- For each additional player, the bad guy can pick from a list of 'scale-up' benefits- Within limits, of course. Possibly an extra action, automatic health regeneration each turn (A small amount), or a bonus to his defensive dice. Maybe a bonus to Momentum for his actions, so he can unleash the big bitchslap attacks faster. Remember, he'd be expending power faster, too, and stunting like hell to stay alive.
    >> Anonymous 11/10/10(Wed)09:40 No.12746833

    So perhaps some kind of game scaling then? So if you had multiple Riders (or Sentai, if/when we include them), the monsters will be stronger to compensate? This then makes completing secondary objectives more useful because it brings the kaijin down to a point where the whole group can take it down fairly easily, but if some of the objectives have been left (accidentally or intentionally) then it's still killable, but will need the whole team working together. It also makes for a useful divide between Sentai and Riders: Riders will usually go after the secondary objectives, Sentai will just throw numbers and teamwork at the kaijin.
    >> Anonymous 11/10/10(Wed)09:43 No.12746848

    Well, I still imagine there's going to be a decent sized Rider group going after any monster, so we'll need to compensate for that. Scaling up might need to address more than just benefits, but then again, I don't want a guy smacking for 75% HP a round because we've got three guys.
    >> Anonymous 11/10/10(Wed)09:48 No.12746877
    Maybe the Kaijin's upgrades only make them tougher, instead of hitting harder? That might be frustrating, though.

    Alternatively, just have multiple kaijin, or tougher mooks per battle. There's no reason to stick to the episodic format 'exactly'.
    >> Anonymous 11/10/10(Wed)09:49 No.12746888

    Well you don't need to make a kaijin do more damage for it to be more dangerous (that should probably be reserved for BBEG level kaijin). Things like >>12746816 could work: having a kaijin stick around for longer will mean that they end up doing more damage overall, if just by virtue of surviving longer to do damage (an example from KROOO springs to mind: the giant fat catperson thing. It was so fat and blubbery that most attacks bounced off it instead of doing damage!)
    >> Anonymous 11/10/10(Wed)09:52 No.12746906

    One funny thing; Sort-of-related. A M&M2E Kamen Rider game I DM'ed had one of the grimmest conclusions I've ever seen. The Gears used to transform slowly but surely changed a user with a high Synchro Rate into...Well, effectively a vampiric kaijin known as a Chiropteran. One player was put through the wringer, as his love interest was a Chiropteran herself- Whom he was decidedly conflicted about killing. At the very end of the campaign, after the two surviving Riders had defeated the monster that planned to convert a good-sized city into *creatures* like itself...They turned on each other. Because the first guy had completed the transformation into a kaijin, himself- The latter one wanted to stop him, to prevent the whole mess from starting up again.

    The first player just wanted to go home to his vampiric waifu, who wasn't really that bad- But potentially infectious. The second player wanted to make sure the threat was extinguished for all time.

    The second player, who was slightly weaker, but luckier in rolling, killed him after a fistfight that came down to bare hands and the strength to strangle. Then he limped away into the night, near-fatally wounded, with no-one knowing that he'd saved the world. The very last scene was the girl opening the door to their hideout, hopeful that PC1 had made it back, before her expression became one of horror- Because PC2 was there to tie up loose ends, by slaying her, too.

    >> Anonymous 11/10/10(Wed)10:16 No.12747052

    Might as well state the rest. The girl was a runaway PC1 'picked up'- He found her slumped by the side of the road. One thing lead to another, and they eventually fell in love; This was his subplot, as compared to PC2's quest to genocide the entire Chiropteran race, in revenge for his own maiming, and PC3's...I don't *really* remember, but I do recall the PC3 was eviscerated by the big bad in the penultimate scene of the game.

    Anyway, it turns out that the girl wasn't quite the innocent waif she looked; She was a Chiropteran (The Owl Chiropteran, in fact), and the *reason* why she'd run away from home was to avoid, y'know, murdering her family. She transformed to help him, when PC1 was cornered and swarmed by mass-produced Riders ('Helghasts') thanks to piss-poor dice luck and my severe overestimation of his capabilities.

    Of course, the other guys weren't so keen on her; PC2 specifically stated that he intended to wipe out her entire race. He was like Riderman, complete with mechanical arm, if Riderman was powered by hate- Instead of JUSTICE- skirting the line between hero and antihero many, many times. He really, really hated Chiropterans, and as Kamen Rider Longinus, went out of his way to kill them as painfully as possible.

    Wow, I didn't actually catch that. Basically, they did the Orphenoch thing, and sucked blood- Except they generally sucked *all* of it, and the victim either turned to dust, or just died. Sometimes, though, one survives, wakes up with the power of a kaijin and a lust for blood. It's a self-perpetuating cycle.

    Same guy again. Yep, equal parts Blood+ creatures and Orphenochs, with a bit of Amaglams from Blassreiter. I'll state freely that I dislike the implied eroticism of vampires- It should explicitly be a curse, not a blessing or an easy way to get super powers.

    The Riders all had vaguely religious names- We had Kamen Rider Kerebos (PC1), Longinus (PC2) and Dio, no relation to Dio Brando.

    The whole implied eroticism with Vampires is mostly derived from Dracula supposedly being a metaphor for bodice ripping, forbidden lust style fiction.

    It depends. I always felt that Dracula was more like a syphilitic rapist- He had *saw-teeth*- with, yes, an STD. Hairy palms, bestial features and all. I actually like Bram Stoker's Dracula as a horror novel, though Anne Rice and Twilight are probably more responsible for the recent trend.

    Bah, getting off-topic.

    Kerebos was the watchdog of hell, by the way. The Rider didn't *actually* have three heads, though the Cerebus Chiropteran form was effectively an armored werewolf.

    Here's an idea for Kamen Rider Yen. Money's a major theme for him, like OOO's and his medals, so...

    See, Yen has various powers, but they all cost cash- Like purchasing weapons at the beginning of a round in a shooter. Want invisibility? That's several thousand a second. Upgrade to your secondary form? A flat fee of twenty thousand. Getting the sword? Maybe several hundred. Yen gets more cash defeating the enemy monsters- And is perpetually broke from dealing JUSTICE.

    The credit-card based Rider spends recklessly- Credit card, after all- but there'd come a point where he hits his spending limit/deficit, and abruptly loses his powers.

    The billionaire Rider is arguably the most powerful- But his equipment, while top-of-the-line, is ridiculously expensive. Of course, the exchange rates vary and so on each time they transform, so the costs to requisition weapons and powers vary each time.

    I'm thinking a Faiz-style satellite, which beams down all the stuff to them.

    The only thing seperating a Dopant from a Rider are the Drivers. Nazca and Weather could technically be Riders, in fact- And the movie has the Luna, Trigger, Metal and so on Dopants. (OOOs turns up to kick the Luna Dopant's ass. And it's awesome.)

    So yeah, why not? I mean, if you had a Gaia Memory like Justice, Edge or Ocean, you might effectively be a Rider- At least until you start freaking out and Double Memory Breaks you. But don't worry, you might get a cameo in the movie when T2 Memories rain from the sky, seeking suitable hosts.

    In fact, that might a good way to start a campaign based in Fuuto. 26 T2 Gaia Memories have been scattered around Fuuto, and each one seeks a user. (Notably, this includes the Joker, Accel, Weather and Nazca memories.) Are you a bad enough dude to hang onto them? Not to mention NEVER and Kamen Rider Eternal are hell-bent on getting them all back...So they can kill everyone. And I'm sure the Sonozakis aren't going to take this lying down, either...

    To avoid GMPC, it might be best to leave Double out, with the players filling in for the role...But there's plenty of stuff that can happen.

    The Sonozakis (And Foundation X, which means they might be going up against Kazu Jun) want the T2 Memories back, as they have the potential to be more powerful than the original ones- Which explains the PCs eventually coming to surpass them, even as Dopants. The T2 Memories, in-universe, are supposed to be better in every way than the normal ones- With the unfortunate side effect of *dying* when you get hit by a Memory Break.

    Immediately, we can have the main characters battle normal Dopants and Masquerade Dopants, working their way up to the superhuman NEVERs (Possibly facing off with Eternal himself) or the Sonozakis. With 25 T2 memories on the loose, it sounds like it'd be good campaign. Even more so in that the memories actively seek out potential users, so we can explain how a group of normal guys could find them.

    I was thinking that Double would warm up to the PCs if they were heroic and maybe offer to help them from the sidelines. He wouldn't be part of the party all the time, but he recognizes them as heroes and maybe could get Phillip to work up some halfassed Drivers so they don't go insane. With Double, the challenge would be proving that you can use the Memories responsibily.

    The T2 Memories seem to have fixed most of the nasty side-effects, like addiction and insanity. But not the chance of death. And also, they can take control of unwilling users, and make them rampage.

    Well, using bare T2 Memories might be fine by itself, then.

    >> Anonymous 11/10/10(Wed)21:33 No.12752923
    Alternative form idea, after each epsiode/session the GM hands out form points. During any fight with a monster you can spend points to create an alternate form.

    There could be 3 potential forms made. The cheapest would be a 'form change' in the ways of Den-O Sword to Den-O Rod, where you reallocate a stat point or two, from strength to speed, speed to toughness etc.

    The second would be a stronger form, similar to Agito Burning Form, this would give you a stats boost all over making you that much more powerful.

    The third would be the final form, pretty much taking your stats and cranking them all to 11.

    Now lets say the Final form costs 50 points from your form pool, and is the last form you can create, once its made, you get nothing else. If you want to have a rider with a shitton of forms it would take you longer but not too much longer to hit the Final form. Make form changes 10 points and power up forms 25 and after that for every 2 points you spend 1 gets knocked off the cost of your final form. So spending alot wouldn't nessecarily mean you're stuck in you base form half of the time.

    Once you buy each form its modifications get recorded and you loose your points after that you can reuse that form at will.

    Once you buy a higher tiered form you'd only be able to one of equal or higher value.

    Ideas are a bit jumbled, but there, this is the best contribution I can think of.

    Well, let me throw down some campaign ideas, then, based on what I know about Kamen Rider. I can always lfesh them out later in the next edition. And since 4chan is acting up, I'll post them one at a time.

    Memories of Fuuto - John, you are the Dopants. Not nearly as bad as you'd think.

    Chiropterans - The main campaign setting where the kaijins are vampiric creatures called Chiropterans. Since they were also humans at one point and can still retain their human nature, this provides a lot of moral dilemmas.

    I'm open for other ideas.

    Mirror World Battle - Groups of Riders duke it out in the reverse Mirror World for some mysterious prize. Machinations are no doubt afoot.

    The City That Needed Heroes - In a more low-tech world that faces rising crime and corruption, those who crave justice take on the mantle of Kamen Rider, using their equipment and innate skills to bring peace to the city.

    About W, its a curious rider, since his (their?) forms dont have a particular character tier, making W a complete Mario. So, i dont think any form has advantages over the others (except fang and extreme) as they are quite versatile. Also, Luna's element is ligth (ironically).

    Hybrid Insectors: In a GRIMDARK world where Shocker making it's move for world domination, the main characters are members of the Anti-Shocker Union, and the first Kamen Riders of a new age.

    The Live (Cutie Honey + Zetman + The Soultaker): In a city where three branches of a monolithic evil organization plays deadly games, the main characters are cyborgs that escaped brainwashing, men on the run with advanced technology, or mutants bred for illegal pit-fights, looking to take them down.

    Makai Kenshi Soulgainer (Karas + Garo): The main characters are magic-themed Kamen Riders, who protect their city from eldritch horrors that twist the corrupted into unstoppable killing machines.

    Or, if we want to have a...lighter game:

    Masked Hero Guys: The Riders all crash-land to Earth from a distant planet and use their powers to defend their new world. Everyone either has a wacky rapping grandma or a pet that gets into trouble, and some enemies are disposed with pies.

    The campaign is also cancelled after a few sessions due to terrible writing and low ratings.

    While I liked Den-O so I don't have an explicit PROBLEM with a lighter campaign option...

    Well, when you think about it, your level 3 fighter in DnD dies when he's killed, too. Mechanically, dying when successfully hit with a memory break shouldn't be that big a deal, since it's just a player death. It's not like Faiz just flies around Memory Breaking all the Dopants at once.

    Since this reminds me and I can't stand /m/ nowadays; anyone in this thread seen Cutie Honey The Live? How was it? I'm curious how much cheesecake there is of the hot female lead, heh.
    >> Anonymous 11/10/10(Wed)23:41 No.12754426

    It...Wavers. All over the place. There's silly nudity, and a creepy (but still hot) lesbian villainess- But then you have MURDER, and some of the most stylish badguys ever. Duke Watari is Mark Millar, the guy who was Kodama in Garo. The Dragon Orphenoch (?) is this...dude with multiple personalities, and claws. Then he goes off the bend, and gets a fourth personality that's a crossdresser.

    They're kind of interesting, but then there's this horrible old woman with a grenade launcher built into her stomach, who fights with a frozen fish.

    Your mileage might really vary. I actually didn't like Honey herself, but Miki, the girl in blue leather, and Yuki, the last 1/3 of the group, are both pretty hot. Also, in real Inoue style, everyone ends up killing each other. It's actually quite dark, but the IN YOUR FACE fanservice can get in the way of a coherent plot.

    Sounds worth trying out for a few episodes at least, haha. Thanks for the info.

    Oh god, that one. I still have nightmares about Ferbus.

    Okay, a lighter one:

    The PCs are policemen, who investigate crimes. Think the G3 Unit, except that each guy is his own unique Rider.

    Dunno, generally Kamen Rider is significantly darker, in that the kaijin hurt people more often. Barring Den-O, of course.

    If you take out the girls, you actually have the makings of a setting, for each branch of Panther Claw.

    Duke Watari: They specialize in making cyborgs. A PC could be a guy crammed full of top-of-the-line enhancements- Who's escaped before brainwashing, and now is out for answers.

    Yuji Nakajo:

    'He runs an illegal gambling operation, creating and executing spectacular bets for the wealthy elite to place their money on. In the first episode, for example, he breaks three men out of prison, gives them advanced weaponry and takes bets on who will last the longest. However, he also rigs the results of these gambles by using his henchmen to interfere.'

    A PC is a man with a experimental Rider gear, and online bidding on how long he'd survive, with kaijin sent to take him down, one after another. The thing is, the house wants him to stay on the run to maximize profits...But they may have badly underestimated him.

    Mayumi Karasugawa (Lesbian principle):

    You're a student, or a teacher, or the brother or boyfriend of a girl who's drawn her 'attentions'. And you're sufficiently pissed to do something about it, as a vigilante. You might be a Riderman-esque badass normal, or you may have stolen weapons and equipment to back you up. Except you have no idea how deep the rabbit hole goes...

    Ahhhh, I remember as kid, I was so pumped for the episode Super Gold, which was Shadow Moon versus Black RX. The follow-up fight was...anticlimatic.

    Then I watched Black on the Fillipino Channel. AWESOME.

    I don't know where /tg/'s sudden craze for Kamen Rider came from but now this thread is autosaging

    I really don't think a 3rd thread is warranted but maybe we can do this again in a week or two
