*sigh* I have too much nostalgia for these games not to play. Sign me up as Jeral, the nice young optimist who is sure that everyone is bound to get along with each other.

Shardworlds:

There will be 6 worlds available: Silverlight, Roshar, Scadrial, Nalthis, Sel, and Braize, (Taldain)?

 

33 minutes ago, Seonid said:

Roshar - A player on Roshar may use an action during either Turn to exchange one charge of investiture for another charge of investiture from any Shard.

Scadrial - A player on Scadrial may use an action during either Turn to exchange one charge of investiture for an extra life that lasts until the end of the Turn.

Nalthis - A player on Nalthis may use an action during the Day Turn to exchange one charge of investiture to count their vote double.

Taldain - A player on Taldain does not gain any special ability, but their actions may affect any player, regardless of the world they are on.

Braize - A player on Braize may use an action during the Night Turn to exchange 2 charges of investiture to attack a player on any Shardworld.

Sel(?)

So 6 or 7?

Cultivation - A player who burns a charge of Devotion’s investiture may use their action during either Turn to create a PM with another player on the same world as they are.

Devotion - A player who burns a charge of Devotion’s investiture may use their action during the Day Turn to cancel the vote of a player on the same world as they are.

Also of course I sign up for this MAGNIFICENT  game!!! Will choose character's name later.

Fixed - there are 6 worlds total, if you include Silverlight. And I ended up replacing Sel with Taldain. Too many worlds diluted the PM potential.

However, only 5 of those worlds have a special action anyone can take (although Hoid, Khriss, and the Researchers all have to be on Silverlight to use their special action targeting contained Shards).

Wow, this is very different from previous Shard games, but it looks far too interesting to pass up. I’ll sign up, with a character name to come once I’ve put some thought into it. And reread the rules a few dozen times.

I will be signing up as Eobard Thawne and Steeldancer. I have a story to tell. I will probably be more focused on RP this game. 

------

Hundreds of years had passed since he had been slain by metal cans. With his limited speed force abilities, Eobard had discovered the quirks of this universe. He had also discovered he could not interact with the magic systems of this universe- apparently he didn't have enough "connection". Furthermore, the Barry Allen of this universe was not a speedster. Nobody was really a speedster. And with no speedsters, the speed force did not dwell in this universe properly. 

But Eobard had been doing research, and he had an idea. All he needed was somebody fast...

----

Steeldancer zipped across Scadrial, his spren by his side. Today, he was going back to Roshar, and he was excited. Like Fleet of the stories, he could race the storms again. He had been busy cleaning up the streets of Elendel and it's surrounding cities, and hadn't had the opportunity to worldhop back to the world that had changed him from fast to the fastest. Abrasion and Steel, unstoppable speed. 

Furthermore, back on Roshar, he could spend time with other edgedancers- steelrunners were pretty rare here on Scadrial. Furthermore, it would perk up Phyl. No matter how much stormlight he gave her using his medallion, spren tended to wilt away from the highstorms of Roshar. 

Stopping at Harmony's perpendicularity, he looked at Phyl. 

"You ready?"

"Absolutely," she said, her crystals seeming to be more plentiful than usual. Seems the little cultivationspren was just as excited as he was. 

"Well, in we go!" Steeldancer and spren jumped into the pool, and entered the cognitive realm.

Researcher - You are a worker in the vast Silverlight labs, studying the Shards and their power. With the recent unrest, you have found it prudent to siphon some of the Investiture off for your own protection. Surely that can’t have any side effects, right? While in Silverlight, each Night Turn, you may use your action to target a contained Shard and steal a charge of Investiture from it. In addition, if you hold a Shard of Adonalsium, you may use one actions during both the Day Turn and the Night Turn of a single Cycle to put the Shard back into containment. If you hold a shattered Shard of Adonalsium, you may use a single action on any Turn to put it into containment. Every player except for Hoid and Khrissala starts out with this Role.

Can Researcher steal more than one charge in 1 turn (with multiplie actions of course)?

Once a Pm is created can it be used by any participants whenever?

Is there a way to restore Cultivation's shard should it be shattered?

When is rollover?

Does autonomies aspects count for khriss's win condition?

I'd love to play, but I'm up to GM next MR and I'm not going to have time to play this and do that, so I'm going to have to take a spec doc link.

I will join as Reed. Who definitely isn't in it for the power. No, that can't be it.

Is this just a weaker version of the Researcher steal ability?

If Ruin destroys Silverlight, what effect does that have on any Shards in containment? Additionally, what happens if Ruin destroys all the planets?

1)In fact it's stronger version, but only for team Hoid, cause he wants Shards to be released.

2)Not sure about part with Silverlight but in previous games Ruin was able to destroy only 2 planets after what he losed his Shardic ability. Also Preservation was able to froze planets for turn... hmm... probably Seonid forgot to add something in rules.

If a PM is created, it can be used by anybody involved in that PM for the remainder of the game. Should be noted - no player can create PMs on their own. Since PMs require an action to create, they can be roleblocked or redirected. To create a PM, you submit the action in your game PM with the GM. It will be created at the start of the next turn.

If Cultivation is shattered, there is no longer any way to restore any shattered Shards

Rollover will be roughly 1:30 AM Mountain Daylight Time.

Autonomy's aspects do not count for Khriss's Win Condition.

Hoid's ability is similar to the Researcher's ability. It's more focused on his win condition, though. Since he cannot steal investiture himself, it makes it so that he can guarantee that a Shard is released with a smaller team.

If Ruin destroys Silverlight, contained Shards move to random Shardworlds. They remain in containment, and any player that can target a contained Shard with an ability can use that ability to target any Shard that is on the same Shardworld they are. (So, basically, any Silverlight only abilities become "anywhere with a contained Shard" abilities.)

If all planets are destroyed?

Yes, they are. I find them fun enough to not care too much about being perfectly realmatically correct.

Shattered Shards cannot be fused or invested in a planet.

That Shard requires one fewer charges of stolen investiture to be released that Night. If you ever hold two Shards, you may use your action during either Turn to fuse the two Shards together into a new Shard.

Does Hoids ability to target a shard only reduce the number of charges required for that night like it says or does it reduce it for longer? If it only reduces it by 1 why wouldnt he just take a charge wouldnt that do the same thing plus he actually gets something?

If hoid had three shards at once could he use the action to merge all three?
