    69 KB Hat-Based Setting Anonymous 03/22/12(Thu)19:44 No.18421234  
    My DM got drunk after a long session of TF2 and Pathfinder. The next morning, he showed me a bunch of notes he took about a new setting he was creating. It was rather strange, but I wanted to see more. The gist is, that Hats grants abilities far beyond that of a normal man. Deerstalkers give one extrodinary perception, Ten Gallons give one improbable aiming skills, Capotains let you automatically detect and purge heretics, etc.
    How would such a campaign work in this setting?

    Whatever tophats and bowlers do, the effects should be amplified by wearing a monocle with them. Further amplification with pocket watches on gold chains.

    The elder races created the first fedoras in the aeons past, one of the greatest testaments to their legacy. However recently, many of the lesser races decided to forge their own, creating twisted and cruel parodies of once elegant creations, defiling and corrupting it with their foul taint.

    The Gas Maskers are bizarre creatures lurking in the Faceless Moors. At the price of coherent speech, their masks give them unnatural durability to all attacks, leading to the popular myth that they are not even truly alive. Although the moor is defended by Bowler forces, the pickets are rarely troubled. Perhaps the Gas Maskers are merely guarding something?

    Forged deep within the heart of Bat Country, the Bucket Hat holds a perverse and perplexing effect to all those who would go under it. Once worn, the wearer will see the world for what it really is: a grim and gritty conspiracy of lies and filth. Those with a truly righteous heart will take up a mission to expose the dirty underbelly of the world's true form at the risk of their sanity and their reputation or die trying.

    The sombrero gives you increased movement, and an uncanny ability to sing folk songs. The only downside is that it causes the wearer to tire easily, and thus might need to take a nap once or twice a day. This hat is favored by bards.

    Peaked cap, forage cap, barracks cover, combination covers, service caps, wheel caps, saucer caps, combination covers, or by its most famous name: The Commissar Cap. This piece of peaked headwear causes pants-shitting terror when viewed by foes and inspires great acts of valor in comrades. Also provides minor protection to physical damage.

    Is the Mad Hatter some kind of god in this setting?

    What about other forms of headgear, eg. glasses, goggles, and the like?

    Do swim caps give you Michael Phelps powers?

    Would this mean that by going into battle without some kind of helmet, it makes you either a badass or batshit insane?

    Does this also give a more tangeable reason for Spec Ops to wear berets as opposed to actual helmets in combat?

    Hats are king, and modifying might make them better/worse. However, other facial wear like goggles,glasses, and monocles adds slightly less buffs.
    And yes, swim caps give you increased swimming ability, but gives you charisma debuffs while wearing.
    Some helmets are alright and even good, but most are just mundane and normal.

    1: take a not from the catholic church and the ottoman empire, He who has the biggest hat has the most power
    2: The pope hat gives you the power to cast divine spells as a 25th (or 20th if you prefer) level cleric with two domains of an appropriate theme and allows you to molest altar boys with no alignment penalty/legal penalty (this is the only sex priests are allowd to have)

In my old pathfinder setting there was a "peasant race" that could only operate given the correct hat for their proffesion, but they could adapt to any situation with the correct hat. The greater races appointed hat officiers that made sure the peasant had the proper hats and that no rapscallions would steal hats for their own purposes.

    The Fedora is a rare and terrible hat, one that will not kowtow to any man who dons it. Those of improper breeding and pathetic posture will be scorned by it, magnifying their failure for all their peers to see.

    But, every so often, one will find the Fedora who is of unimpeachable class, whose style transcends period and fashion, who stands tall and proud in a sea of shuffling drones. It is ones such as these that the Fedora respects, and to them, it grants the universe.

    A strange hat that has had little true research devoted to it. To most people it is a simple novelty hat, worn by funny men in strange cars and eccentric personalities.

    However, those who don a Fez come to learn of the true nature of this strange headwear. While wearing a Fez, the wearer's wisdom increases by leaps and bounds. Their eyes perceive the universe with a much more complete view.

    However, the wearer looks fucking ridiculous and suffers greatly in any social situation.

    WARNING: In some regions the simple act of donning a Fez has been known to incite riots.

    Mad hatters went mad because of the way felt was made. They used heated mercury nitrate to get hair off of the pelts they were using. I think modern milliners use superglue, because mercury is a neurotoxin.

    Anyway, clearly mercury nitrate should be magical in this setting. I figure that whenever it sticks to something it yanks the magic out, but does not store it anywhere, so the magic will behave like air next to vacuum and get sucked into the nearest low-magic vessel. To prevent it from going right back where it came from you need to keep the source covered in mercury nitrate.

    So to enchant one item with another's aura, soak them both in mercury nitrate, then immediately dry off only one of them.

    ...Naturally, the dry one absorbs the magic from the still en-mercuried one... and you've got to cook it in an oven to dry it properly, which has the effect of turning it into felt suitable for hats.

    In the likely case that the magic doesn't stick around long enough for the felt to dry, you can do okay by putting your magic source at the top of the oven, getting it covered in mercury vapor.

Nowadays, it is only a relic, most of the cowboy hats nowdays are nothing but powerless artifacts, but, there are stories of those who managed to break the line of time about men convered in armor but not their heads...

    Within the top hat community there were a select few who were able to weave the very fabric of reality into the strands of their fine headwear. This led to the rise of the 'rabbit out of the hat' parlor trick, usually used in conjunction with white gloves that improved slight-of-hand maneuvers.

    While pulling a rabbit out a hat is novel, many of those magicians were known to pull much more dangerous and threatening items from the depths.

    Few of these hats are known to exist today, the few that have survived are jealously guarded by the Magician's Guild. They are loathe to allow any of their treasured relics to fall into the hands of others.

    How about yes? The power of hats directly relates to how stylish they are, a plain, peasants helmet just gives light shielding.

    Even a bike helmet with a floral design could make flowers grow or some shit.

    Indeed, helmets with designs or decorations would have further powers, your's could be a flying headbutt from 20 feet away.

    Anyway, I think it stands to reason that helmets would be overpowered if they aren't nerfed, as most are strapped on to the head.

    Most plain helmets do little. Perhaps a small bonus to toughness, an inclination to follow orders.

    >The Mask of the Lucha Libre

    The headwear of the Luchadores has baffled hat theorists for ages. By all means and rights it should not be considered to be a hat, and yet these items have the ability to grant their wearer greatly increased speed, agility, strength, and the ability to take an ass whooping.

    Very few of these items are still in circulation today, the knowledge of how they were formed has almost been lost to the ages.

    There are rumors about a man who can still forge new masks. It is said that should you be able to defeat this man, he will pass on the secret to you. Unfortunately, this man never removes his mask.

    What if the hat you were wearing was your class?
    And the level of the hat would be the same as a class level, and the more a person used it the more powerfull the hat would become.
    Mabye adornments and such would give the hat unique abilities based on the type of hat.

    Since their would be so many different types of hats and therefore classes they would probably need to be separated into categories like strength type hats, agility type hats, Intelect type hats, etc. maybe charisma hats... i dunno
    These hats would all confer similar abilities and statistics, but would differ slightly.

    I'm pretty sure that one retro–style DS game Final Fantasy: the Four Heroes of Light had this as its primary game mechanic. Your classes were called 'crowns' and were shown as a hat you wore. I remember it because I named all the characters after Dutch Baroque Painters.

    Black mages inexplicably wore top hats, I remember.

    For "classes" perhaps a wearer could "bond" with a certain hat or hat type. Hats of that type work fine, similar hats in the same general category might have a lesser effect, while hats outside that category would have no effect or perhaps reject the wearer outright and be deleterious.

    Or maybe not a 'bond' but one might select a style and/or personality at character creation. So for example a tophat would reject you if you weren't dressed dapper as fuck.

    The idea is that if one had multiple hats they could essentially be whichever "class" they needed/wanted to be. While that might be fun, it might come with a ton of paperwork (this is my character in a fedora, this is him in a tophat, this is him in a fez...). The only other way would to have hats just give small bonuses or whatever, but that would relegate them to being more like a regular magical item and not something to base a setting on.
    >> Anonymous 03/25/12(Sun)08:00 No.18450959
    So at chargen you'd have:

    (akin to class. Personality determines the category of hat you could wear, style is your preferred hat type and the one that gives you the most bonuses. Perhaps you would just start out with a personality and choosing a style would come later on, like a specialization or PrC of some sort.)

    Basic stats (point buy). Str, con, dex, int, wis, cha, if we're going by DnD, but it's pretty standard. Though I think we might want to add some more or split some up. Having 7 or 8 different stats means we can make hats a little more unique, stat wise.

    Skills: General skills and "hat specific" skills. Hat specific skills would only be able to be used with a hat of the appropriate type.

    Rolls: Xd4+Y, where X is the relevant stat and Y is the skill modifier.

    Hats add to certain stats and give access to hat specific skills, as well as enhancing some general ones. They also add "hat tricks" which are special maneuvers, spells, or what-have-you, you can get more of these (and higher bonuses) once you specialize in a given hat.
