Aspects

Postby adidasfiend » Wed Sep 17, 2008 12:12 pm

I have an idea for an aspect, I don't know if my narrator would let it "fly" but i will "float" by him. or even if it would be really outside the picture/feeling of ven.

Aspect: I CAN FLY
Invoke: I don't walk I FLY!!
Tag: I hover and never touch the ground
Compel: I must tell everyone I can fly.

From sorcery or what ever mystical reason, the character would be able to fly. Granted he would be looked at awkardly b/c sorcery is a big no-no but maybe it could become a novelty at court. and when Solace kicks in the actual floating along the ground appearance could be very cool.

I'm open to any thoughts including "thats the dumbest thing ever!"

Seems out of line. Aspects appear to give you added dice to attempt something.. they don't give you the ability to do something that is not normal. If there was a Ritual or Artifact that did this you could have an aspect that gave you bonus when using it.

but even then your Compel just makes you seem like a loon. (pun intended).

What if the aspect wasn't for literally flying but for expressing a more abstract idea.

Aspect: "I Can Fly!"
Invoke: I get bonus dice to convince others of the outrageous claims I make.
Tag: When someone tries to disprove my outrageous claims.
Compel: I'm compelled to make outrageous claims.

Aspect: "I Can Fly"
Invoke: Get bonus dice when doing crazy stunts.
Tag: To make me look like an ass when doing crazy stunts.
Compel: Compelled to do crazy stunts.

Coolness! I really like the first alternative.

So lets say for some reason you can Fly. Maybe it's because of an artifact or ritual or something.
How would that aspect work.

Aspect: "I can Fly"
Invoke: I get bonus dice when flying.
Tag: Opponents can tag to get bonus dice when I'm flying.
Compel: Compelled to fly to the rescue. *Must whistle or hum the Superman theme*
