Name of Ability?
Steel Longsword

Ability Effects:
Before, Damage – 2, 200, removable -50*2, (100)
After, Damage – 3, 300, removable -50*2, (150)
Change, Damage – +1, +100, removable -50, (+50)

Descriptor: Hayle's steel longsword, he uses it generally as an implement for grappling his foes to the ground and ending them with a quick stab in an armour break. He allowed Rosa to tinker with it, the result was a blade that had one edge lined with silver, and one razor sharp edge.

Essence Cost: 50

Staff Edit: Approved, but in the future the essence cost at the end should be the total essence cost of the ability, even if it's an alteration.

Name of Ability?
Heated Blood

Ability Effects:
Damage 1: (100)
Modifiers: Triggered (50)
Finite (-50)
Chaotic (-50)

Descriptor: As a dragon of plasma with a high internal temperature and plasma coils running directly past his major blood vessels and arteries, Ridley's blood naturally sits at a temperature of 500 fahrenheit. The resulting heat can cause burns on anyone who is touched by the substance, though it rapidly cools after the fact. with every successive wound ridley sustains being exposed to the open air, of course, the temperature goes down as the Dragon's body loses blood and continues to be exposed to the open air.

Essence Cost: 50

User name: Morene Fellon

Name of Ability?
"Starbolt Pulsar" Crossbow

Ability Effects:
Damage [Rank 4]
Modifiers: Ranged, Finite

Descriptor: A crossbow crafted by Morene's own hands after gaining knochten status. Loaded from the top, the magazine contains six large explosive energy rounds that are shot with a "hammer" at the back of the string upon firing. The string is pulled by the pump-action foregrip at the front, allowing mobility while chambering another round.

The projectiles are relatively slow and "drop off" at longer ranges, akin to a rocket propelled grenade launcher. It's explosive radius is more or less a meter in radius, and inflicts heavy knockback, enough to pop humanoid targets into the air when firing at their feet.

However, reloading is relatively time consuming, taking nearly five seconds to release the magazine, put another in, close the hatch, and chamber a round. It would be a good idea to take advantage of this relatively slow and loud reload process when fighting her. That is, if one can successfully dodge the six bolts beforehand.

Essence Cost: 400

Staff Edit: Approved.

It takes the shape of a 400 pound hammer that can collapse into a 400 pound rock she frequently keeps in a specially made backpack. when extended, the hammer's head is thrice the size of Shale's own, and has a long, steel shaft that puts the long warhammer at the same height as Shale herself at 6 feet. It's a powerful weapon that does a lot of damage to anything it hits

Pyrite Pyromancy of the Divine Conflagration

Ability Effects:
Damage 1 (100)
--Ongoing (100)

Descriptor: Ahana can manifest a small, gold-coloured flame anywhere within half a metre of herself, and can manipulate it freely. It requires no fuel to continue burning, so can even float in mid-air. This flame is not very harmful, but can give painful burns to those who touch it. It can also be used to illuminate her surroundings.

Name of Ability?
True Immortality of the Divine Conflagration

Ability Effects:
Healing 7 (1400)
--Ongoing (700)
Protection 2 (200)
--Ongoing (200)
Endurance 6 (600)
Adaptation: Chemical or Toxic Environments (50)
Adaptation: Disease (50)
Adaptation: Radioactive Environments (50)
Adaptation: Nonbiological Anatomy (300)
Adaptation: Incredible Cold Environments (100)
Adaptation: Incredible Heat Environments (100)

Descriptor: Ahana’s innate magic, ‘the Divine Conflagration’, grants her superhuman stamina and renders her immune to all manner of diseases, poisons, and even radiation. It also protects her from the most extreme temperature fluctuations imaginable, and (to a lesser degree) other forms of harm as well. In the latter case, golden flames appear wherever an attack lands on her body when she is struck, and block (or at least mitigate) the damage from it.

Furthermore, whenever an attack is not fully blocked, her body rapidly repairs the damage. When this happens, the fire lasts until her healing is done before extinguishing itself. It is from these flames that the name ‘Divine Conflagration’ originates. As if that was not enough, her magic also keeps her alive no matter how gruesomely wounded she is, even if the level of harm is so severe that it would be instantly fatal to a regular person (e.g. decapitation).

It does have some limitations, though. The first of these is that it only heals her body, it cannot repair her clothing and possessions. The second is that her immortality is not perfect; there are some things which can kill her. Namely, these are thirst, starvation, suffocation, and exposure to the vacuum of space. Also, whilst this magic is active by default, she can choose to suppress it if she so desires, weakening or fully negating the effects temporarily, and when in this latter state she is no more difficult to slay than any average individual.

Essence Cost: 3750

Damage 1: (100)
Move Object 1: (100)
--Ongoing (+100)
Sense (Mindsense) 1: (100)
--Ongoing (+100)

Descriptor: The Potential allows those who have it to go beyond normal human limits by unlocking the true powers of the mind. One such power is the ability to resonate with the minds of other beings nearby, resulting in a sort of mental radar that picks up on any complex entity capable of autonomous action nearby.

Additionally, by spending his school nights clearing the floors of the nightmare dungeon Tartarus of its many monster denizens, Makoto has developed superior strength, agility and endurance, comparable with top professional athletes.

--Ranged (100)
Damage 4 (400)
--Affects Multiple 1 (200)
--Ranged (200)
Total: 2200

Descriptor: Earthbending, one of the four elemental bending arts, is the geokinetic ability to manipulate earth and rock in all their various forms, prevalent in the Earth Kingdom and the United Republic. Cho has adopted a quicker style of earthbending, only rooting himself long enough to throw his attacks.

Essence Cost: 2200

Staff Edit: Approved at 2200 Essence.

You initially had this priced at 2000 Essence, as you had forgotten to increase the costs of your Modifiers when you increased the rank of your Damage Effect. I have fixed that for you.

You can add this upgrade to your Character Profile once you have enough Essence to buy it.

Descriptor: Armor developed and specially made by the multinational trading company Kirijo Group for members of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad. While it's made to resemble the school uniform of Gekkoukan High School to avoid suspicion, it boasts impressive resistance to most forms of damage while offering maximum mobility and comfort.

Ability Effects:

Ongoing [2(100)]
Affects Multiple x1 [2(50)]

Descriptor: Using her own magic Kassandra transforms non-living materials around her into new materials at will, such as turning dead wood to stone or marble to glass.

Essence Cost: 700

Staff Edit: Approved at 700 Essence.

Take note of the changes I've made. Modifiers do not have ranks. Instead, they are priced based on the ranks of the Effect they modify. Affects Multiple is no exception. It only differs in that it can be taken additional times in order to increase its area of effect.

Military Authority

Ability Effects:
Master Skill: Social (Standing) 7 (350)
--Bases and Upgrades Discount (1750)
[No Skill] 3
--Bases and Upgrades Discount (900)

Descriptor: Although Ahana lacks much in the way of true social skills, being the leader of Neo New Babylon’s primary military force does bestow her with a tremendous amount of influence, resulting in her being easily able to “convince” ordinary citizens such as builders and architects to give her the biggest discounts they can possibly afford.

Essence Cost: 3000

Staff Edit: I and the other admins agreed having social standing at all doesn't count as a "master skill." Looking at your description, consider something like Intimidation instead.

Supreme Will

Ability Effects:
Master Skill: Social (Intimidate) 7 (350)
--Bases and Upgrades Discount (1750)
Master Skill: Rituals/Arcana 3 (150)
--Bases and Upgrades Discount (750)

Descriptor: Although Ahana isn't particularly charismatic, she still has little difficulty coercing the average citizen to do her bidding, even when what she desires of them is immense discounts on massive construction projects. Being one of the three most influential figures in Neo New Babylon means she is largely immune to the consequences of her actions, and she is not afraid to take full advantage of this in order to threaten (or make an example of) anyone who has the audacity to expect her to pay them a fair price for their goods or services.

And on a semi-related note, she has been learning a little about magic as of late, which has allowed her to cut her costs even further, as a result of using mystical processes to achieve certain things, rather than relying on more costly, manual labour.

Name of Ability?
Master Skill - Piloting (Not sure what to refer to the collective group of vehicles as, but vehicles from the Star Wars Universe.. Speeders + Spacecraft maybe? Also, updating, as I'd previously purchased it on the old system)

Ability Effects:
Rank 5 Master Skill
Rank 1 Perk - Transit Discount

Descriptor: Nishana's line of work takes her off world frequently. As such, she is very experienced with piloting all varieties of vehicles. Additionally, she has managed to wrangle a deal with whatever authorities oversee transit between worlds, this deal lies heavily in her favour, of course.

(Not 100% sure if transit discount is applicable for the -50 essence due to attaching it to the master skill. Let me know if that's not a thing!)

Essence Cost: 500

Staff Edit: You can't have "Speeders + Spacecraft" as one Master Skill, because those are two separate things. That would be like buying the Skill "Driving (Unicycles + Trucks)"... aside from using the same means of propulsion, they have essentially nothing in common. So you'll need separate Skills for each.
Also, you can't say "she is very experienced with piloting all varieties of vehicles", because if that was allowed under Driving/Piloting then we wouldn't require people to include a type when taking the Skill.
