In the interest of bringing this community back to life, I've decided to start posting random things here...random "BESM" things...
I'd like to first point out Ayeka's Bliss:
Which has a section devoted to anime roleplaying games. Currently I see 3 games all using BESM 3rd Ed. for their rulesets that appear active (most recent posts between today and two weeks ago)
And I'm sure the owner, Senkusha, would be more than happy if someone wanted to start up a BESM d20 game there...

I am looking for a group that plays BESM ,preferedly BESM d20 version 3 or 3.5, that uses OpenRPG to play over the internet. I usually play a kid tech genius/robot piilot. I'll have to reroll my character up, but other than that I really want to get back into the game.

|gaiadarkstar||10:29 am - Need help|
I have always wanted to be a GM and I really like the amount of options that you get with BESM and played it at GEN con Indy years ago and loved it and liked when they changed it in third edition so it wasn't so easy to just be unstoppable. I have the third edition book but am so overwhelmed that I have no idea how to use it correctily. I can't even make my character right. I wish there was an online character generater but if some people could help me step by step that would be great. I have so many problems. First I have no idea exactly how many character points I really need. I started with the keeping it simple tips and used 350 having 7,5,6 as stats adding to 180 points and started to work on attributes. I have a complicated character that has two alternate forms that do different things and I am regretting having to do something so complicated as my first time but I can't change my story at this point it is all based around this character. So far I just don't know how to make things work the way I want. I know not many people probably even have this book since I don't think it was sold but I could really use some help. I just don't understand how the item or weapon thing works either and I thought a page said skills so I wrote a couple things from there in the skills section on my sheet then found that I hadn't reached the skills section yet. I don't think things are arranged or explained as well as they could be. Should I switch to the d20 version? I don't have that book but I just don't know if I can figure all this stuff out. should I try to remold it so it works for me, that might take a while but I am just so unsure and I don't have a ton of time to work on it since I have a three year old and a three month old. Any help at all would be great.

|senkusha||06:57 pm - So I've started my own game...|
Yeah, I did happen to find a great group of people dedicated to GoO, and I'll probably invite those fine people too, but I figured, since I found this place first, I'll open the invitation here first.
It's a space opera, with a touch of magical girl tangled up inside. I hope it proves to be a unique setting that we can all enjoy. Tell your friends! The more, the merrier!

|senkusha||02:15 pm - Looking for players|
Hi, I've had the BESM 3rd edition for a couple of years, and have recently reread the book again. I'm looking to either participate in a game or start up a new game. Basically, I'mn looking for some community of friends who enjoy the same gaming system that I adore.
I prefer science-fiction based games, but also enjoy magic as well -- I'd be perfecally happy in a magical girl game too.
It really sucks having bought a game that I can't play! I'm thinking that Online would probably be preferred since there are so few of us who seem to use this system. If players want to come together and form a new game, that I'd have to GM, (or not) I could provide an online meeting place at my anime forum (http://www.ayeka.net).
Thank you for your time, and I hope to see sone interested players reply! :)

Although I really like the simplicity of BESM 3rd Ed, my major problem now is getting a hold of the book for players so that we're not all sharing off of the same one.
I was wondering if anyone else in the community has any recommendations of an active RP system (or one that's easily obtained legally) that they've used in the here and now?

|jeikobu13||12:40 am - online BESM|
I am looking for an online BESM game that I could join, preferably Medieval Fantasy
August 14th, 2007
I started working on a new campaign, my first one with 3rd, and am looking for some ideas or tips. The game is medieval fantasy. I'm playing with the dark elves in this game, as I am a big fan of the Drow from D&D. Anyway, the Dark Elves are influencing the world above them, after conquering the kingdom of Araelia, the Dark Elves use the Araelian forces to launch war against to Sirian nation to the west. At first, Dark Elf involvement is unknown and it just seems to be that the Araelian empire is feeling a little cramped and is setting its sights on expanding into the surrounding regions, gobbling up little kingdoms as they go.
Today I posted the history of the Dark Elves for the world and probably tomorrow will try to post the template for them, and get started on the more modern history of the world leading up to the first adventure, which is the beginning of the invasion of Siria.
Anyway, any thoughts on adventure hooks, story arcs or just general tips for running a game would be appreciated since this is my first 3rd game and the first game in over a year period. My three previous games never got past adventure 2 because I sort of lost interest and felt that my players didn't have interest either.

Hello to all, I am starting a campaign with a group of friends and I am trying to find a place to buy the 2nd edition BESM books for a good price, or even get the pdf format which might work better, if any one has a good idea as to where to look that would be great.
Also is there a way to change a d20 character into a tri-stat system character? If so knowing how would be nice. Thanks

|geoectomy||08:20 pm - How best to model alchemy / potion-making?|
So, I've got a magic-using character who wants to be able to mix potions to confer 5-10 points worrth of attribute effects. It needn't matter who takes the potion.
So... how would you model this using the attribute sets?
Potions take time to make; They may require special ingredients nad typically wouldn't last terribly long. They may be unstable.
I've the idea of creating an item of power to reflect the specific potion being made. While it wouldn't always be the same potion, it would act as a place-holder of sorts... Then Power Flux to assign different attributes to the Item of Power (Potion) in question. This would require an open-ended (so, at least 10/level) Flux--not the limited pool (5/level).
I've tried to model it a few times but the point-cost starts to get pretty expensive for a changeable 5 or 10-point effect.

i really dont know if this community is dead or not... but involving BESM d20
i am trying to assign pointvalues to certan class features because they dont do it in the book, it just says there there but dosent give a break down.... i know sneak attack is treated as a feat would wildshape and rage and smite be treated the same way, how about domain access and such

Hi, I'm just starting to get into BESM. It's my first time doing any sort of RPG, so I still don't really know what's what, but I've been reading loads of guides on the Internet to help me out. I'm GMing a game with a bunch of friends (also first time players). We haven't done a game yet because the details are still being worked out.
I was wondering if anyone could help me, maybe give me some advice on how we should make characters and how we should actually run the game. I'd like to use some nice 25mm figures and floorplans too, anyone know a good site for them?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Okay, I've got the books to run the Sailor Moon Tri-Stat RPG, but I have no maps. The only map I really need is one of the interior of the Moon Palace from Silver Millenium. I know that there is a map from Sailor Moon: Another Story but I can't find it anywhere (I saw it once before but didn't save it because I didn't need it at the time). Any help in locating this map or any map of the Silver Millenium Moon Palace would be greatly appreciated.

January 24th, 2005
Hello I am new to besm, but not to the whole Pen & paper RPG. Right now me and my friend are the current GM. right now me and my friend are doing his game, but soon were going to do mine as well.
My ideas for this game is were me and my friends play as ourselves who are warp to several different anime shows, past games, and other places. the way I’m setting it up is, every one ability stats start at 10 and they have only 7 character points to put them in were they think it accurately portrays them (one point = one point). Then each person gets only 5 defects and only if they are true to that person. Then with the character points they get from the defects they get to use on ability at they as humans can do (no invisibility, OBM, wall jump, ext). I gave every on 2 feats, and I had everyone add 2 to their int & times that by 4 to get there skill points, and I had them roll a d4+1 for combat skill + background points (the amount of point was determine on how long I know that person 1 to 4) the reason I’m doing a game like this is because in my friend game several people are too over powering at first level. One example is “Bob” (my friend has a hard time coming up with names). He is a dynamic sorcerer who can cast several 9th level spell and still have energy to spare. So the idea in my game is to have people think before they act or react to something, after all they’re only human.
The way Lv up works is once the get enough exp to turn leave 2 then they can chooses a class from the book, but that depends on we’re there at.
i would like to resive feedback and ideas, thanks

|trueanimehero||03:11 am - Questions about the Bipod attachment|
I was curious about the Bipod attachment. In the rules it states that, "When the pipod is unfolded, the weapon is treated as if it was Accurate (cumulative with any other Accurate bonuses) and Static." Could someone define for me what exactly does Accurate and Static entail? I looked in the book and thought that it meant that the rifles loses it's category of Operational and is considered Static once the bipod is deploy but I don't think that is right. Also I am not 100% sure what the staus Accurate entails.

I volunteered to run a Sailor Moon game for an old friend. I learned the Tri-stat system the old resource book uses and I am using the base characters in there, but I ran nito a problem. I have one of my player wanting to play Sailor Pluto which I have no problem with except I have no stats for Sailor Pluto o_O I was wondering if anyone might have any ideas for a Sailor Pluto character using the Tri-stat system. I have been searching the internet for one. Does anyone have one? If not I will give it my best to create one but I don' know if I trust my limited knowledge of Sailor Pluto to create one. Especially since I have no clue how much damage her attacks do ><;;;

Proficiency with weapons was replaced with Combat skills. So to see if your sword hits someone you take your D20+melee attack bonus+combat skill?
This does not seem correct to me. Is it?

Hello I am am pretty new to besm. Our group has only played one game. I wasn't GMing but I do provide allot of assistance with rulings and such.
I was wondering if people could provide me with information on the Slayer D20 magic system. I would like to see how they did it and maybe make my own. We are using a modified system of magic based off D&D but I would like to make it more anime focused. I have been unable to locate the book in any stores near me to read on how they do the magic system.

|reaverbob||12:49 am - First things first|
Right, well, to begin.
I'm new here. My names Bob, and (oddly) i love BESM.
This is a sort of "hiya" post.
Its also something else. I was looking for some inspiration, and some advice.
I have been volunteered to run BESM, needless to say i have never run it before. After some discussion it was agreed that the setting of choice was "Supernatural Conspiracy", we decided on what we call our maturity rating that it would be a "Play for keeps" game. We would play it manga style but serious, no shrugging off grievous harm, no defying gravity, etc. I figured here i would ask for some ideas as to what manga and anime would be worth a look.
more details below

So yeah, thanks, and all opinions appreciated.
