Thread: Heraldic Standard Teaser

  1. Default Heraldic Standard Teaser

    An heraldic standard can inspire the members of the user's group once per day, When waved, it provides them with a 1-hour period of +5 general attack strength and increased mana and stamina recovery during which one to three points of each are restored per minute (determined by the Influence and Aura of the user). This effect doesn't stack and will not be refreshed or changed by the effect of a second standard.

    The standard can also rally fallen group members once per day. When raised, it gives them a chance (based on the Influence and Aura of the user) to stand if prone, sitting or kneeling, even if they are incapacitated. The user is excluded from this benefit.

    The standard is blank when first obtained. The user must apply an emblem to it before it can used. This is done by waving it at something (besides people). This can be done only once, but it can be altered by a merchant.

    When the mana/stamina recovery effect is invoked, the user will automatically make an exclamation. If there is no custom exclamation, the default will be used, which is:

    "In the name of the [EMBLEM] and to the everlasting glory of all ye followers!"

    This feature can be muted, and the exclamation can be changed by an alterer.

    A standard can be furled or unfurled. It cannot be activated when furled.

    Finally, a standard can be attached to a polearm or a back-worn container, but it only activates its features when it is unattached and in-hand.

    PULL: Removes the standard when it is attached to an item.
    PUT ON: Attaches the standard to a polearm or back-worn container.
    RAISE: Activates the rally effect.
    ROLL: Furls/unfurls the standard.
    RUB: Fluff: “You run a hand over the standard in a quick inspection.”
    SALUTE: Fluff: "You hold the standard high and honor it with a salute."
    TURN: Toggles muting of the exclamation when the morale effects are activated.
    WAVE: Activates the morale effects, and it has a one-time use of applying an emblem to the standard.

    Thank you, all ye forum followers.

    Time for bards to rise up with our inflated aura and non-dumped influence to do some weak versions of 1007, 1018, and 1040.

    What a waste of code. No wonder why savants will never happen. GMs prioritize dumb stuff.

    This isn't even remotely the same. The GM who created this may not even beable to fathom how to create a new class or create brand new game mechanics. Hell, regular CE GMs learn a little bit of coding to do stuff like this.

    Wondering if it’s limited by user or people getting the bonus effects. Meaning if I had two of these could I effectively spell myself up for 2x 1 hour aday? Also, does the standard need to be out for the effect to take place or could I wave it, get the bonuses, then stow it in my backpack?

    If it is anything like any other x/day item, it is per item.
