Dancing

Post by Shaula » Mon Nov 04, 2019 9:38 pm

I was looking at what to spend my remaining points on and saw dancing, and was wondering what it would be used for.

Good question! This is one of the skills I almost removed because I couldn't think of a whole lot to use it for, but I think I'll keep it, because it has a few potential uses I really like. Including:

- Unlocking various RP uses of the command.
- A performing skill that can be used to make some money from NPC tip-givers, akin to storytelling.
- A way to get some Dodge defense in combat situations without a character necessarily being a trained fighter (see the Graceful Dodge ability)
- Dance-based occultism. You essentially become the glyphs yourself by making the right dance poses. Because I don't care what anyone says: I think this is an awesome concept!

Dance based occultism would be amazing. Shamanish style magics where you communicate with the spirits of the world to influence reality? Hell yeah.

Practicing dance, having been a former dancer myself, is long and arduous with slow rewards. It's all muscle memory. I think dance can be akin to a recipe - you learn particular steps to a dance and a routine and create the dance from that template. While you can give yourself to the flow of the music and freely dance, you aren't communicating anything more than your passion.

I really want to be an occult dancer marauder, now...
