Waiting for a game edition.

A thread dedicated to the development and discussion of the One Piece RPG, inspired by Eichiro Oda's titular work.
System building, character building, campaign building, and general advice and discussion are all welcome.

>D6 One Piece
System in progress by OPD6-anon (V0.3): https://pastebin.com/atFsdSue
There are still a few spots for pregens of Paramecia and non-DF users, although the rules are subject to change. V0.4 should be here "soon".

>One Piece RPG by The Beard
Somewhat complete system, with quite a few cool ideas, but it might need some work to get all the more recent information from the series. Also relies heavily on the GM for rulings on custom content. A more crunchy but lite take on the series.

>One Piece: Age of Pirates v6
Game developed by Hitotsunami, quite a few things missing but playable, unknown if it still being updated.

Where do the marines get their Sea Prism Stone?

>> No.56835831

IIRC, it only exists on one sea, and they probably have control of the largest known mines of it. Probably centuries of hoarding it, since until Roger came along, the Marines had a cozy job, the entire pirate chaos is pretty recent.

>> No.56837392

I ran a session zero with my players and they seemed unimpressed with the scenario. Aside from battling mook pirates, what kind of things would you like to do as players?

>> No.56837448

Encounter completely weird and insane NPCs, get caught up in nonsensical plots, standard One Piece stuff, anon.

>> No.56838092

I think a lot of what makes One Piece fun is the clash of personalities between characters. The charm of the series relies on a lot of silly comedy, with characters taking turns on acting as the idiot of the group, and players tend to get too stuck on being always silly or serious instead of playing it by ear.
And of what I find interesting, would be constant hints about situations the PCs found themselves stuck or about their backstories. Even if tangentially related to a character, always giving someone a shot to tell a bit of their tale along with the GM can make the game flow better.

And like the other anon said, over the top silly going into over dramatic situations where the stakes feel higher and higher.

>> No.56838341

I had a enemy captain that was pretty weird. Problem is that the players ran and hid when he showed up so I had to do some pantomime.

There is also the problem that Mutants and Masterminds has a flaw in the combat system. NPCs that get alpha striked can wind up getting only half their actions each turn, limiting engagement.

>> No.56841190

I'll try to make it sillier, Anon.

For my upcoming game I realize I have a problem.

The starting scenario is that the players are stranded on an island and need to secure money for a boat auction happening the next day. I have four different ways they can get money for the boat (as well as the option of stealing it outright). But the party may split and attempt to pursue multiple leads at once. How can I encourage them to stick together without outright mandating it? I want the story arc on the island to end in a single session.

>> No.56841568

I had an interesting idea in the same vein as Chinjao. A World Government assassin/operative known as the "Yami Mask" due to his combat style of coating solely his face in Haki and then just going to town with head butts, face plants and woodpecker attacks, and due to his expression when he fights, his face would resemble a black Shikami mask. He would keep his arms behind his back at all times in a fight unless he's using them to specifically support himself for another attack, but rarely using them or his legs in a fight.

His secret technique is relaxing his body to reveal he has a fat gut and coating it in haki as well to create a second mask.

>> No.56842748

Dump pictures of NPCs that would fit in a One Piece game.

>> No.56844433

The issue is that even in the series itself, the party tends to split up a lot. The easiest way I can think of making everyone stay together, is making sure they are short on time, so they need to commit fully to whatever option they end up going with, making every job need a couple of moving parts so they can't just send someone and be able to do it easily. The other option is telling the players directly to keep together for a while.

Good call. I think the players would be agreeable if I asked them to stay together.

One of the plot hooks I have under-developed is that they can talk an heiress into her arranged marriage in exchange for a reward from her father. I'm not sure how to make that require the whole party, though. Any suggestions? The wackier the better.

>> No.56847823

The hieress has eaten the Back Back fruit, that causes anyone who is looking at her back to only be able to move backwards. You need to surround her to stop her from just walking off.

Reposting so theres some stuff going on in this thread!
>Ever Red Island
>An Autumn island located in the Grand Line. It is a large island country which is made up of mostly large flat lands and small cliffs and hills. The island is covered in lush forests of reds and oranges and yellows, with bricks of bright red connecting the various villages and towns to the central city, surrounding an immense, bright red castle.
>The island is ruled by King Guyreed, a tyrannical lord who took over the kingdom by forcing a political marriage so he could rule it by law.
>He was able to do this unopposed and continue to control the throne despite attempts on his life thanks to his own power and the strength of his loyal Brush Knights, three incredibly powerful knights loyal to Guyreed
>Guyreed himself has no special powers, but is an unrivaled swordsman (at least on the island) and has cut down numerous fools who attempted to take him down
>His Brush Knights consist of Darkly Briggen, a knight how ate the Brass Brass Fruit, allowing him to create and control brass freely and dominates foes with his brass constructs, Ridicule Ockley, a knight who ate the Silver Silver Fruit, allowing him to control silver and cuts down enemies easily with his two silver blades, and Langselot, his strongest knight, who ate the Deer Deer Fruit Model: Elk, possessing enough strength and skill to crush entire pirate crews alone, shrugging off even cannon fire.
>Along with the Brush Knights, Guyreed commands a legion of over 100 knights who guard and keep order across the kingdom

>> No.56853991

>The citizens of Ever Red island have had to endure Guyreed's tyrannical rule for years, with no hope of escaping, as the Government refuses to step in, and any brave souls who decide to lend a hand are quickly crushed
>Except for one man
>Two months before (current events), an elderly man arrived to the island on a small house boat. He was adorned in rather ratty looking armor, and carried a sword far too heavy for a man his age to be wielding, and it showed with how he could barely swing it
>The man was known as Wasser, who presented himself as a gallant knight who had cut down countless villains and monsters in his quest for a city of great dreams to save his home
>When the citizens learned of this man they quickly begged him to save them from Guyreed, even throwing what little money at him
>What the citizens did not know is Wasser was an actor, a self-proclaimed master of any role, and he had been sailing from island to island to put on his latest play, of a knight of great strength seeking a city of dreams. Wasser himself was a weak, cowardly old man, and certainly not up for the task he was being asked to do
>Of course Wasser was prepared to run away as soon as possible, until he witnessed the sight of one of Guyreed's knights attacking a family in the streets for walking in front of him. Wasser, despite his cowardly demeanor, rushed to the families aid and engaged the knight, with a combination of boisterous lies, masterful acting, a surprising grit he never knew he had and a lucky swing from the monstrously heavy sword he had, he bested the knight, though didn't walk away unscathed, but thanks to his armor and acting talent, he convinced the citizens he has won flawlessly
>Now pressured by the praise of the citizens, as well as his rage at the injustice they suffer, Wasser fights a clearly overwhelmed battle against Guyreed, but even hit and run tactics end with him barely escaping with his life

>> No.56854013

>That is where [Your Party/Crew] come in
>Arriving on Ever Red island, your lot are quickly made aware of the injustice of the island, as well as the losing battle the cowardly actor turned heroic knight is waging against Guyreed.

>Eye Eye Fruit- A devil fruit that imbues the user's eyes with special powers. Depending on how the user looks, it can produce different effects, for example, giving someone a 'piercing gaze' will cause them to be stabbed, or giving them an 'icy stare' will cause them to start freezing.
>Mask Mask Fruit- Allows the user the ability to seal people, animals and objects into masks, and when worn, the masks will transform the user to take on the attributes of the mask, no matter what, whether it's a giant, or a tiger, or even a gun. If the masks are destroyed, the victim is released and can never be sealed into a mask again.
>Bio Bio Fruit- Allows the user to manipulate the biology of things he touches, even to absurd degrees, like turning a simple flower into a man eating plant monster, or turning a small mouse into a massive rodent beast. The changes are temporary, and require the user to 'recharge' his subjects every five hours or they will revert to normal. The subjects changed by the user will always possess their own free will no matter what, unless the user chooses to control them remotely, but can only control as many as two, one for each hand acting as a remote.
>Snake Snake Fruit Model Hydra- Allows the user to transform in the mythical hydra. Starting out with a single head, the hydra can regrow two heads when it loses one. The user also gains the ability to spit out deadly venom
>Measure Measure Fruit- The user becomes a measurement person, they gain the power to physically touch measurements and alter them, for example, taking part of the height away from one person and adding it to another to make them taller, and the other person shorter. Any kind of measurement, whether it's an object, a person, or even a distance, can be altered like this.

I can give some summaries of islands I have coming in my campaign:

>Franklin Island, home of the Greeley Printing Company. Every day, trees are shipped in and every evening magazines are shipped out. A huge amount of the island is dominated by Tea fields, to fuel the insatiable demand of the thousands of writers who live there. It is rumored that there is treasure hidden in the castle of the castle of the Chief Editor, who recently died, but you would have to search through millions upon millions of manuscripts that fill every room and hall.

>Chak-pur, an island inhabited by the Chak-pur Monks. They are friendly to outsiders so long as they obey their most sacred law: Metal is forbidden on the island. As such, docks are built offshore for general business, only connected to the land by a thin rope bridge. Their temple is a tall wooden tower made entirely without metal tools or fasteners. An initiate is considered a full member when they can quarry and craft a perfect stone brick entirely with their bare hands in under a day.

>Uki-uki-uki-uki-uki Island. A tiny island near inhabited shipping lanes, it is nevertheless given a wide birth due to its inhabitants: Thousands upon thousands of monkeys. There are so many monkeys that there's no standing room, so they spend half their time swimming or wading in the water nearby, and will board any vessel they and fight the passengers just for more space.

>> No.56872485

>Darling Island- An island covered in a thick forest. The people of the island love and respect their forest as a haven of nature thanks partially to the existence of a Poneglyph deep in the forest, which they believe is a message from the nature spirits The people avoid unnecessary forestry, and try to protect the greenery as much as they can

>Wavebreak Mound- Thanks to a special sea current, numerous derelict ships have come together, forming a massive island of wood, rails, rope and sails. It is home to criminals of all sorts, escaping from the law

>Margarita Days- A unique island. It has an outer ring , that contains an expanse of water within, and several smaller islands inside. Due to the outer island ring, the inside water is protected from hostile sea life, leaving just docile, beautiful fish on the inside. The small islands inside are connected by docks. The island was once a luxury resort, but pirate activity chased away all it's business, and the inhabitants and workers decided to turn the island into a normal home.

I want to make up a guy who's basically a super amazing tailor, and that's his schtick, that he wants to make the best suits for the strongest people in the world.

I'm debating what his fighting style and quirks should be, since I was going to give him a giant needle as a spear but the party already has a "cute girl doing whaling things" harpoonist lined up and I wouldn't want to double up on the throw-long-sharp-stabby-things fighting style.

You could go with regular-sized needles and thread, with a sewing machine gun that fires them. Since tailoring is all about threads, you could easily go for a spider/web theme too.

This is good stuff. I picture him as one of those ridiculously haughty and arrogant high-end fashion designer types, astonishingly serious about his work. He needs to have a quirk or two for humor as well, and I want to avoid the stereotype of flamboyant ambiguously-gay fashion designer.
