    Specialization Generalization? Empty Specialization Generalization?

    Well, I would suggest implementing the idea of a brawler simply as a specialization. How they go about it, is up to them. Brawlers, like Sanji, are more than capable of being on par against people with weapons. If they choose to be a brawler, they don't have weapon specializations or get any bonuses from them.

    If I were you, I would implement weapon BONUSES, not stats. Like for example, a sword gives someone a boost of dexterity and a gun gives a boost of accuracy. Agility could be worked in there too, it doesn't matter those are just examples. Brawlers would simply have the chance to "level up" their stats, like strength and health, faster than those that have weapons though since they don't get items to help them in combat. Like instead of a 2000 word count, it's a 1,500 word count. And they have 1 or 2 bonus starting points.

    That's what I would do if I were you, if you're so adamant about a stat system. There needs to be more detail to it. I know you just started though, but that's why we're here to help. I believe there should be some sort of system, to keep the power house factor in check.

    We're already discussing things to do for a hand to hand combat class or something of such.

    Dragon asked me to put it here, so I did. And I have yet to see a well involved discussion about this anyway

    You wouldn't have seen it, the discussions were in CB and over Skype, the CB gets cleared all the time. For everyone's convenience, including myself, I will make sure we work to get that completed as quickly as possible. Also the reduced word count requirement and bonus starting stats are a big no no.

    I'm just putting up what Dragon asked me to. If he likes the ideas he'll use them. None of us speak for him. Skype and CB are not as permanent of discussion areas as a forum though, hence why it is here.

    i think what he meant was that somebody who specialized in brawler or hand to hand would only need 1500 to advance a level for that but still 2000 to advance a level in swordsmanship. Its an interesting idea.

    Exactly. Since weapons would (should?) give them stat bonuses, having the ability to power up sooner and easier would keep them on par for those that level up yet have assisting items and weapons.

    What does it have anything to do with Dragon if I post here? Where here did I speak for him? I haven't even mentioned his name once. Please show a bit more respect, the way you are replying to me trying to be helpful is very rude.

    Just because you have a weapon does not mean you are stronger, any hand to hand combatant could be just as powerful as a weapon user, so why would hand to hand combatants be able to gain stats for a lower cost? Weapons do not give you stat boosts and anyone can have items/weapons it's not like it's restricted to only swordsmen.

    If this is not what you are trying to say, please explain to me what you are trying to get at, so I can be of further assistance.

    It's a method to keep the levels fair, that way you don't have swordsmen going up against a boxer automatically cutting them down. You can't tell me that a sword doesn't give someone an advantage.

    And I found your responses passive aggressive, and dismissing. Like I shouldn't have even put the topic up in the first place. But it's whatever, I don't really care *waves hand* I meant no offense

    Hey hey guys, I told him to write this so everyone could give input on the actual topic at hand (his suggestion) because we don't have the entire forum on Skype or anything.

    Please refrain from accusing each other of aggressiveness, etc.
