Defensive Point Buy

From MassiveCraft Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Defensive Point Buy is part of the Proficiency System. Its Packs allow a Character to use and get defensive Techniques. Any learned Technique can be used with any shield a Character knows how to use. Shields can be used to defend yourself without using their attached Abilities. We encourage dice rolls to resolve disputes when players can't figure out what to do next. Any character can use a shield with at least one purchase of these Point Buy packs, but Constitution does not decide how effective someone is with a shield. However, if a Character has no Constitution, they are considered incapable of using a shield effectively.


Shield Cover

Shield Cover is a special that is automatically included in any purchase, meaning that so long as a Character has a single Defensive Point Buy Pack, this special is also added for free. Shield Cover allows the user to raise their shield and block Ranged or Firearm Default Shots from in front of them.

  • Shield Cover can both be used independently, or as a reaction to being shot at.
  • Shield Cover forbids the user from using other Abilities or Attacks in the same turn as they use Shield Cover.
  • Shield Cover does not have a cooldown or a limit to it. As long as the shield is raised in a direction, it can block any number of attacks fired at the user.
  • Shield Cover cannot guard the user from attacks fired from behind. It is expected that characters do not instantly turn around to perfectly block shots from outside of their line of sight (unless they have an ability making them aware of the attack).
