I have no life. XD

Possessor, to me, implies being possess by someone. Check Mate, to me, implies being controlled and guided by the hand of someone else, whether malevolent or otherwise, but never actually being touched or directly involved with that pet.
The Defender is the Antithesis to that; being able to counteract the Check Mate while never directly getting involved or interfering with that pet or the one being guided. Neither of these pets can physically interfere themselves, but must use other means, such as using birds to destroy a bridge, or asking a log to float by on the river at that exact time for crossing, to meddle.

I liked the idea of magic being done in steps; you have ability, you begin to learn, then you become a master. It seems like those types of traits, even if they are passive, would be ‘powerful’ if used in an RP.

With the ‘Spirit of Nature’ I was thinking more along the ,lines of not necessarily having one type of blood, but all types, and being in tune with everything around you to the point of feeling pain, suffering, happiness, and other emotions and feelings form the flora and fauna.

Restless Soul is more of a ‘not being able to be tied down by relationships’ rather than traveling. Such as ‘this pet is unable to form close bonds with others’ and such. I’ll edit it a bit better.

Diseased touch sounds more like…sickness to me. Frozen Fingers sounds more like just freezing people. XD The Malady Maker is centralized on more physical and magical things, such as “sight, smell, scent, or some type of magic or chemical ability” instead of just touch. I was thinking more along the lines of deadly, or harmful diseases, and being able to control it. Gonna edit~

I love adventurous tales like that. That uplifting feeling that comes from seeing unknown lands and the knowledge that you came across—nothing can replace it! It opens a path from which self-confidence, experience, and important friendships—from the sharing of life or death situations—are born! But hearing it just isn’t the same. I want to create my own magnificent story!



A great adventure!

Sucky description. But. I was creating pets and we need an art based social trait. :l I guess you'd add what specific area a pet would be good at in parenthesis.

Artist – This pet has skill in creating fine art, be it two-dimensional or three dimensional.
Implemented – Artist


Here I am, there you are
Don't wanna stop
I know you know it, I can feel it
All the tension rising up
So much it hurts
We're saying more than words

Emonivore- These pets feed off peoples emotions

Also I am kinda intrigued that we don't have Cannibals but that may be a bit too weird. D:

Edit: and it kinda falls under Carnivore... depending. :U

Re: * New Traits

Postby ToxxicRenegadeAngel » 04/23/2012 6:28 PM

Forgive me for thinking 'dragons' when I look at Paragon, but:

Hoarder - Passive - This creature obsessively hoards something, be it gold, food or trash, in it's den.
Implemented - Hoarder

I was thinking along the lines of being able to stumble onto the den and then either getting in a fight with the creature, or the creature being willing to trade/donate from it's stock. And I know we have the OCD trait, but this is more a compulsion that can be resisted, but is indulged instead, rather than one that would give the pet a panic attack if it didn't respond to the drive. Like, the pet sees a pile of trash, roots through it, and takes half of it home to join the rest of it's 'treasures', giving the pet a sense of pleasure? But the pet won't have a panic attack if it chooses to pass over the pile of trash (though it would be wistful at the thought of what could be there) and it won't be forced to search the pile, like OCD compulsion forces people to repeat actions obsessively every time they're in that situation, and gives them a panic attack if they don't.

Other suggested names for it: Collector, Treasure-Seeker, Packrat

Edit: another one xD

Assisted Flight - Passive - This creature uses a magical or mechanical means to fly
Implemented - Assisted Flight

Like, one of my characters is an inventor, so he could create mechanical wings for flight?

AAAAnd another EDIT:

Quick Healing - Passive - This creature's wounds heal faster than usual/by force of will, though bruising and other injuries cannot be healed this way.
Implemented - Speedy Healer

So, if the creature got beaten up it could prevent a bleedout, but the creature would be in pain all day because of the bruising?

Defensive - Passive - This creature is generally aggressive towards others, and is always on the defence.
Implemented - Defensive

Seductive - Personality - This pet knows how to use its body to entice the gender it is interested it; both for romantical reasons and also to maybe get what it wants from others.
Implemented - Persuasive

Masked - Physical/Personality(?) - This pet always covers a part of its body to hide something it doesn't want others to see (a scar that disfigures the pet, a tattoo that identifies it as someone specific, a mask to hide its eyes...)
Implemented - Masked

Old-fashioned - Personality - This pet seems to be stuck in the last century, either because it wears clothes like that or because it believes women only belong into the kitchen and other things long outdated.
Implemented - Old-Fashioned

Homeless - Social - This pet lives on the street, without a roof over its head.
Implemented - Homeless

Celebrity - Social - This pet is for whatever reason, good or bad, famous and can't run around without being recognized by others.
Implemented - Celebrity

Criminal - Social - This pet is a wanted criminal, though it might not be very high on the underworld ladder (We only have "Criminal Mastermind", nothing for lower criminals o3o)
Implemented - Criminal

Magic Seal - Battle (One-Use) - This Trait, if it hits, seals the opponent's AP-using attacks, making them unuseable for three turns.

Greater Magic Pool - Battle (Automatic) - This Trait, like the other stat-raising Traits, gives the pet additional AP to use that get added to its base amount.

So this isn't so much a New Trait than a trait edit suggestion, but I just realized that Windgill Paragon have Wing Buffet as a racial trait. This poses a problem since not all Windgills have wings xD I noticed this when I was looking over my Windgill Sol, who has Spine wings that don't enable flight. So...fix it?

As an aside to that, perhaps Wings should grant traits as well, much like colors do? They wouldn't have to be much, just that the ones that enable flight would give "Aerodynamic" and those that don't... wouldn't. Unless you wanted to or something.
Implemented

These lofty thoughts are killing me

I get so high on my ideas
Don't call me down

To make my way back to those old familiar places

GPS - Passive/Social? Physical? - This creature always knows where it is and cannot get lost.

Other names: Geograph, North Star

Weaver - Passive/Physical - This creature's body produces a substance that is used to make fabric.

Ah, this is bothering me... Biology nit-picking and all.

Toxic spines:-Physical- This creature has venom producing spines.
Implemented - Venomous (which covers all these suggestions)

Venomous fangs:-Physical- This creature has fangs filled with venom.
Implemented - Venomous (which covers all these suggestions)

Poisonous skin:-Physical-This creatures skin is filled with poison.
Implemented - Venomous (which covers all these suggestions)


Technically, Venomous would only really cover the middle one. The other two would fall under "poisonous" because it's a passive thing. "Venomous" is reserved for things such as snakes or spiders, animals that use fangs and an active way to inject a toxin into a victim. "Poisonous" is a passive thing, such as glands that secrete a toxin or tissues that would have an adverse effect if ingested.

So: snakes are venomous; frogs are poisonous. The first and last ones could be made into the trait "Poisonous" with qualifiers for how the toxin is produced (spines, glands, etc.).
Changed - to Toxic

"Poison is absorbed or ingested; a poisonous animal can only deliver toxic chemicals if another animal touches or eats it.

Venom, on the other hand, is always injected. Every venomous animal has a mechanism to inject toxins directly into another animal. Stab with tails. Slash with spines. Pierce with fangs. Spike with spurs. Shoot with harpoons. Chew with teeth.

For example, frogs are usually poisonous while snakes are usually venomous. "

Just a bit of information that can easily be found online to help back Azura up. Though I would place the spines under venomous still. But yeah. Point is, there should be one for each.

Hydrophagous - Diet - This creature's diet consists of water.
Implemented - Hydrovore

Parentheses would be used to clarify, i.e. (morning dew off plants), (distilled water), (rainwater) etc.

Other names: Hydrovore

Trait modification: Tree Climber to Monkey - This character is adept at climbing, and scales most structures with ease.
Implemented - changed to Climber

At the moment, it only covers climbing trees, but it could be necessary in other situations - ship's rigging, or scaffolding for example.

Other names: Monkey Climb, Tarzan

Able Seaman - Social - This creature has spent it's life navigating the seas, and is at home on any aquatic vessel.
Implemented - Able Seaman

Orphan - Social - This creature grew up without the guidance of it's parents.
Implemented - Orphan

Parentheses could be used to state whether it was abandoned, or it was the sole survivor, or who raised it... stuff like that ^^

Adopted - Social - This creature was not born into it's family, but was accepted into it through other means.
Implemented - Adopted

Again, qualifiers in parentheses (where it was found, if it is related to them in any way - grandparents adopting a grandchild, for example - etc.)

Fisherman - Social - This creature subsides by fishing for a living.
Implemented - Fisherman

This would have a qualifier in parentheses, e.g. sport, work, hobby etc.

Master Fisherman - Social - This creature is considered a senior and experienced fisherman, able to land any catch without fail, no matter how big the prize.
Can go under Fisherman with Master qualifier

I was thinking along the lines of the current traits Tracker and Master Tracker - one for those who have a lot of experience and/or talent in it, and one for those who are okay at it ^^

And now a marking trait suggestion - The Coontail marking states that "They are also sometimes kleptomaniacs, who love to gather things they get in large piles hidden away somewhere." This sounds a lot like the Hoarder trait, so I suggest adding the Hoarder trait to the Coontail marking stats.
