It's on again!

Confirmed cast list: Helios, Daremonai, bigmaddrongo, The Lune, GamesVaultSteve, Jack

With our widely varied schedules, we can use this thread to discuss availability for sessions.

Firstly, we need to sort out characters for the new rules. The six20 rules are a d20-based, "E6" set of rules, aimed at highly customisable characters and simple play - I'll be posting a link to the rules very shortly (once I've ironed out a few kinks).

As we've had a long time between sessions, and we'll be converting over to a relatively different rules system, there will be a one-time, no-going-back opportunity to alter your character concept and role .
PM me if you want to do that.

So: who is available to convert their character on Wednesday the 12th December?

I believe I have already converted. Are there any changes that will need to be incorporated? I can be there either way. Just need to find my character sheets.

@Beardy: Did you? There'll be a bunch of changes to Domain Powers and Magic to take into account...

For those not familiar with 'E6', that's a D&D ruleset that is capped at 6th level (this generally being considered the D&D 'sweet spot'; not too underpowered, not too overpowered).

After 6th Level, XP gets spent on epic feats. We who played in previous iterations of the Gaultria game are effectively level 6 and a bunch of feats, under this system.

Pretty sure you, me and ninj sat down one day some months ago and did some converting. Also pretty sure I know where my character sheets are but won't be able to check them until tomorrow night.

The six20 Fantasy Rules are collected over here.
I'm currently working through updates between the "alpha" version to get us to "beta" stage, so there are some items still to iron out (internal links, examples of magic items, rituals and spells, etc).

Since then, I've updated the feats list, altered the magic system completely, and changed all the magic item rules. We will need to look over it again.

I can indeed make Wed 12th. I'm still thinking about any potential changes to Fel, since "glass moulinex" is harder to acheive now...

On a side note, the six20 rules don't seem to have any effect words listed, only target words.

I've found them! All the effects are described under the domain listings, which he hasn't made very prominent yet. I can only assume this is because he is still fiddling with them.

The link to the list Helios posted is right there on the Magic rules page, in the entry on Effect Words. I've moved it to the top of the paragraph to make it more prominent.

Some of the Effects are still work in progress, but I've got placeholder text to show the general concept of the effect for all entries.

I was confused by the first link only leading to the magic page, rather than the effects list.

In any case, while I'm trying to wrap my head around it, do you have a table anywhere showing how a person learns these words? (and would I be right in thinking that you combine words on the fly when you cast?)

The class entry for Spellcaster should show "Domains Known" shortly DONE. Otherwise, they can be accessed by the feats Domain Power, and Improved Domain Power.
And yes, you put words together on the fly.
