Ok, so I'm working on my own set of house rules for Alloy of Law,
and I'm trying to work out ratings for Ferrings (Single Metal, Feruchemists)
I had been going with:For Starting:
2.1.1 Powers (new options)
• Twinborn: Your character is both a Ferring and a Misting. He or she has a Feruchemy rating of
4 in one metal, and a Allomancy rating of 5 in a different metal. (Note: for a normal Twinborn these must be different Metals, if they are the same, you are a a Compounding Twinborn. see below)
• Compounding Twinborn: Your character is Twinborn for the same metal. This means he or she can Compound ([sec:Compounding]) He or she has a Feruchemy rating of
3 and a Allomancy rating of
2 in the same metal.
• Ferring: Your character can store and magnify any number of personal qualities. He or she has a Feruchemy rating of
4 in one metal, and may use Feruchemical metalminds of this type (see page 275 of Core).
-----And for advancing:
Become a Twinborn
|-||To become a Twinborn (or Compounding Twinborn) you must purchase appropriate "Become a Ferring" and "Snap into a Misting" |
|Become a Ferring||10||(Characters without Feruchemical powers only), become a Ferring with Feruchemy rating of | 4 3 in one metal.
|Become a Ferring (such that you are a Compounding Twinborn)||20||(Characters without Feruchemical powers, and with matching Allomantic Power already, only), become a Ferring (and thus a Compounding Twinborn) with Feruchemy rating of 2 in one metal (and maintaining your existing Allomancy rating in the same).|
|Become a Misting (such that you are a Compounding Twinborn)||10||(Characters without Allomantic powers, and with matching Feruchemical Power already, only), become a Misting (and thus a Compounding Twinborn) with Allomancy rating of 2 in one metal (and maintaining your existing Feruchemy rating in the same).|
Now I'm yet to stat out compounding, but ignoring the number that are there to balance around that (since I haven'tmade therules that use the numbers) that we still see a oddity that worries me:
Problems: A.1 Feruchemist starting ratings
Ferrings (starting rating 5), Twinborn (starting rating 5) start with much higher Feruchemy ratings than Keeper (starting rating 3 in all). This gap is bigger than the gap for Mistings (starting rating 5) and Mistborn (starting rating 4 in all).
The reasoning behind this is that Becoming a Ferring (rating 4) should be worse than starting as a Ferring, and becoming a Compounding Twinborn (rating 2) should be worse still.
What do people who've actually played think?
I'm was worried (Prior to latest edit) it wouldmean that For Ferrings, the will be no where to go - they are more limmited by there physcial attributes limits (Like you can never store more than you health-1 charges in gold in an hour). EDIT:
Should this be in the License to Improve board?EDIT 2
