    I'd like to temporarily take a break from Touhou and shift my focus to another series that I greatly enjoyed: Utawarerumono. For those of you that don't know what it is, it's a TRPG/pseudo-erogame later turned anime, set in a fantasy world akin to feudal Japan, but with heavy Ainu influences. Later, the whole place turns out to be post-apocalyptic Japan, and elements of sci-fi are added to the plot. The story is very war- and kingdom-based, and the characters spend most of their time either leading their troops in battle or managing their country's government.

    Now, the setting of Utawarerumono is perfect for D&D. It's high-fantasy sword & sorcery, with fighters, mages, priests, gods, and all that. There's always a battle to fight in or post-apocalyptic ruins to explore if you want a hack-and-slash game, while there's also the chance for political intrigue and diplomacy between different nations if you have a more roleplaying-inclined group. The standard classes don't even need to be changed, since pretty much every single D&D class is appropriate for this kind of high-fantasy setting. The races, on the other hand (cat ears and tail, dog ears and tail, bunny ears, bird ears, pointy ears, angel wings, normal human, etc.), might need a bit more work, but you can simplify it by assigning them the standard stats for a human (no stat adjustments, bonus feat, bonus skill points, adaptable favored class). For the timeline itself, you're free to designate whether you're playing before the events of Utawarerumono, during the events, or after the events.

    So, /tg/, Utawarerumono in D&D: think this can work?

    Karura doesn't actually rage or any of that shit she is just really really strong. Her racial HD probably take up a quite a few of her levels.

    Also, some quick Stat Mes off the top of my head:

    Hakuoro = Marshal/Fighter or Iron Heart/White Raven Warblade
    Eruru = Cleric/Radiant Servant of Pelor/Master Alchemist
    Aruru = Druid/Beastmaster/Wild Plains Outrider
    Mukkuru = Advanced Dire Tiger with some template I need to come up with

    Oboro = Fighter/Tempest or Iron Heart/Tiger Claw Warblade
    Dori & Gura = Ranger/Fighter/Order of the Bow Initiate/Peerless Archer
    Benawi & Kurou = Marshal/Fighter or Iron Heart/White Raven Warblade
    Yuzuha = Commoner
    Touka = Monk/Shou Disciple/Iaijutsu Master/Fighter or Diamond Mind/Iron Heart Warblade
    Karura = Fighter/Barbarian/Frenzied Berserker or Iron Heart/Stone Dragon Warblade

    Urutori, Kamyu, Mutsumi, & Dii = Cleric/Dweomerkeeper/Divine Disciple

    Kuuya = Marshal (before amnesia and autism), Commoner (after amnesia and autism)
    Sakuya = Rogue/Thief-Acrobat
    Genjimaru = Monk/Shou Disciple/Iaijutsu Master/Fighter or Diamond Mind/Iron Heart Warblade
    Hien & Hauenkua = Marshal/Fighter or Iron Heart/White Raven Warblade

    Orikakan = Marshal/Fighter or Iron Heart/White Raven Warblade

    >eruru and aruru really shouldn't have class levels.
    Eruru and Aruru could actually hold their own in the game. The former was a combat medic and secondary debuffer, while the latter was a tank with the help of Mukkuru.

    >Mang touka doesn't have monk levels at all. What is wrong with you?
    I gave Touka and Genjimaru monk and Shou Disciple levels because it really fits the "masterwork bastard sword master" archetype, along with the actual Iaijutsu Master prestige class, of course. It helps that they're very Lawful and disciplined.

    >Karura doesn't actually rage or any of that shit she is just really really strong. Her racial HD probably take up a quite a few of her levels.
    Rage and Frenzy significantly pump your Strength up, and I'm willing to say that her fighting style is basically very barbaric.

    >also, why is everyone a fucking warblade?
    Because they do a lot of fighting in wars, and the various martial disciplines can differentiate their fighting styles. Swordsage might work too, but I'd rather stick to warblade for now.

    touka doesn't have a fighting style also its not that str gets pumped up she is always absurdly strong. she probably doesn't even need classlevels beyond fighter 1 and then just hit things really really hard.

    as for eruru and aruru they need stats to be in a game but I still see them as mang without class levels.

    >Touka never beats people with her fists ever, its all about that masterwork bastard sword
    Which is exactly why she has Shou Disciple levels, which turn her from a fist-fighter to a masterwork bastard sword-fighter. On a side note, she did nearly kill Oboro with her fists in one of the DVD specials, but that was a light-hearted episode.

    >touka doesn't have a fighting style also its not that str gets pumped up she is always absurdly strong. she probably doesn't even need classlevels beyond fighter 1 and then just hit things really really hard.
    I'll assume you're talking about Karura. Yes, she's just absurdly strong, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's all racial HD/abilities and no class levels. Look at the other members of her race such as Derihourai or that one faggot with the kunais/shurikens: they didn't have super strength at all. Well, either that or the females of their race get +20 Strength, but that's highly unlikely.

    >as for eruru and aruru they need stats to be in a game but I still see them as mang without class levels.
    In-game, they're just as experienced in combat as the other characters.

    I'm seriously willing to make Karura a half-ogre and say "counts as". That way, she gets +6 Strength, Large size, 10-foot space, 10-foot reach, and the ability to wield a Large heavy fullblade right off the bat (I don't think it's big enough to be a Huge heavy fullblade). The enlarged space and reach can be explained off as her taking up a lot of space with that gigantic sword of hers.

    You're bringing up the Immortals Handbook? Fancy that, I'm still a heavy advocate of it. But yes, if you allow Virtual Size Category Rules, then Karura would most certainly have one. Come to think of it, I think it'd be best to make her a Half-Ogre Fighter/Barbarian/War Hulk. That way, she can have a whopping 63 Strength by ECL 18 (18 base + 6 half-ogre + 4 inherent stat boosts + 5 stat tomes + 20 War Hulk + 6 item + 4 rage). That gives her a light load of 51,200 pounds; a medium load of 102,400 pounds; and a heavy load of 153,600 pounds. If we use the Immortals Handbook VSC rules, that also gives her 3 virtual size categories and boosts her base damage by 3 steps, so if she wield a Large fullblade, that gives it a base damage of 8d8. If you make it a Gargantuan balanced fullblade wielded with Monkey Grip, that gives it a base damage of 16d8, but it's really not big enough to be Gargantuan.
    >> Anonymous 12/29/07(Sat)17:17 No.949116
    As much as the VSC/density rules from the IHB make sense to me, I'd rather not use them for this purpose. Your incarnation of Karura's already OP as it is.

    By the way, I remember reading somewhere that Kamyu and Urotori don't actually use their wings for flight, they just use anti-gravity magic to propel themselves. If this is the case, then we have all the more reason to give every Utawarerumono race the racial stats of a human, except for special exceptions such as Karura.

    so i've been busy but I had some time to think so just a few quick thoughts for now: Carrier's base stats would look something like this: high str above average dex high con low int high wis low cha.
    birdears would be something like this: medium str high dex medium con high int low wis low cha

    both have low cha because while they are the hotness they aren't good with people at all.

    is looking pretty nice for carrier. I think her weapon isn't anything you'd consider a sword though and if it is considered one I'd like argue it also does bludgeoning damage.

    for touka I dont think you need to focus on the katana part too much unless you go for one of them wacked out iaijutsu focus builds where she is doing that to everyone.

    A underwaterrayromano campgain is just a dnd campgain where everyone is humanoid. the only races I think off the top of my head would be the generic animal parts guys, carrier, angels. if this were a dnd campgain i'd totally avoid the godzilla sci-fi part.
    focus on the metal fan using super commanders fighting raptor riders.

    Giving everyone a bonus feat, bonus skill points, and an adaptable favored class is going to be much simpler than arbitrarily assigning racial stat adjustments and racial abilities for every kind of animal-eared species out there.
