Wheel of Time: 200 years After the Breaking RPG
I'm leaning towards a Mage the Ascension-like system. This would be something like your power is similar to Arete, and instead of spheres, you have the Five Powers, and combinations of those Five Powers lead to what weaves you can know.|
The problem is when keeping with canon, some people just have more potential for the Power in general, and can only work with the individual powers to a certain extent.
So, I'm trying to work on a way of figuring out what the potential is. Once a system for potential is in place, one could just buy up whichever trait they wanted, in the general experience point sytem that WW has for most of it's d10 games.
But, I'm still at a loss of how to determine potential.
Good character write ups?
A random factor, like rolling dice?
I'm just not sure what to do with it.
