1 Semblance/Stat Buffing on Thu Mar 17, 2016 9:11 pm

Hello all. Sorry to introduce myself with a question; I may make my way over to the introduction thread soon enough. It's been almost a year now since my last time roleplaying, but I'm quite familiar with forum rp format. Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things fairly quickly.
Regardless, I figured I might as well get this out of the way.

Your Semblance increases one of your statistics higher than they normally would be. Add 2 to the named statistic (Str, Res, Def, or Spt) for 10 Aura/post, even if it would go above the natural maximum. Only one buff can be active at a time. Speed can also be buffed granting you an extra attack over your base number.

Just a quick clarification question regarding buff stacking: Does the bold script mean you can only buff a single attribute at once? Or does it mean you can only buff yourself one time? Can I, over the course of numerous posts, activate my semblance multiple times while buffing the same attribute?

-First post, I use my semblance, buffing my def. by 2 at the cost of 10 aura, plus 10 more aura for each post I keep it active.
-Second post, I use my semblance again, buffing my def. up to 4 at the cost of 20 aura.
-Third post, use again, stacking to +6 def. at 30 per post.

And so on and so forth. I'm sure that if this is allowed, there would be a stacking limit, and the aura cost would be more than the initial -10 each additional time.

Either way, once I have this sorted out, I'll move on to character registration.

Hello and welcome!
Don't worry about the question for an introduction, I personnally didn't even register to ask my question when I first came here :P

To answer your actual question now :
You can only buff once per post, regardless of the stat or target (because yes, you can buff allies), and that includes keeping the buff active on subsequent posts. Basicaly, each posts you're back to "no buff" until you either buff again, or mention that the previous buff is still in effect. So, no you can't stack buffs over multiple posts :P

The rule is there simply because one semblance isn't limited to buffing a specific stat. A same semblance could buff str one post, and def another post, so long as it's logicaly possible for said semblance to do it. (Like, if you semblance is fire, might be hard to explain how Fire protects you from physical attacks passively) Without this rule, one person could buff every stats at once, but it is not something possible ^^

I hope this answer your question! Don't hesitate if you need more clarifications.

Aaah, I see. No further clarification needed, I can see how that might cause a few issues. I suppose when I read "Add 2 to the named statistic" I assumed the semblance would have to be attribute-specific, like a strength or resistance buff.

Still, that's fine by me. I'd much rather have the general buff.

Anyway, thanks for thanks for the warm welcome and quick response~
