I am an avid RP and tabletop gamer, currently designing a tabletop skirmish game of my own. It is a hobby of mine to sit down with a core book for a game and decipher its system.

comment How to use a GMPC for the good of the campaign?
I like the Q reference because that is a wonderful character to model intermittent high level beings, but he had more of a Loki-type effect: Yeah I'm gonna mess with you, but if you're a good sport you get something good

I've done something like this multiple times.

comment Are there roleplaying games where your race levels up separately from your class?
Could you elaborate just a little more?

My biggest problem with this question is that almost every game I've seen that puts a priority on "growing" a race tends to be a point-buy system.

Vampire's Generation/Blood Potency (in NWoD) may not have been the best example, but the disciplines are strictly race based. They are in fact given abilities by level. Mage would have been more ideal since you can buy up your Gnosis/Arete with XP, same as your magic 'spheres' which opened new abilities and when it comes down to it, in WoD (old or new) your race is your class for all intents and purposes because almost everything (save Wraith and Changeling) is born the way it is.

Removed the -1 because that does make a lot more sense. Do you have anything about Atemi and non-humans perchance?

comment Stain Upon the Soul and Unconventional Wound Ranks
This does not seem to address my question in a useful format. What the clause about actual Wounds means is that if the target has any wound penalty, take the higher of the two penalties. Thus an Injured character won't be shunted into Down. However, what if you are targeting a foe that has only the following Wound ranks: Healthy (+0) and Dead. Does even the most basic Stain kill the character for having the penalties of 2 Wound Ranks?
