So Uh...I made this packaging and rulebooks for Romance of the Nine Empires. I'm very proud because it was my first professional tabletop gaming design piece. I mean "professional enough to have a UPC on it."
The actual illustrations and most of the logos were done by other people before I even got in to do the project. So my work was mostly layout. The cover, for example, has three illustrations on it. Each side of the box has a different faction. The front, back and the 4 sides I mean (as there were 6 factions in this expansion). I did all the layout and diagrams in the rulebook too. It was very fun and to this day its probably the best professionally done piece in my portfolio.
So I wanted to see the average stats of the active players on our site (who have converted their stats).
Note that the above is a misleading median average. It includes players who have such a low reiatsu that their stats haven't begun to diverge yet. It hides the fact that most players dump either speed or defense because its a surprisingly even split on the dump.
I'd also like to note that this shows that the precision system is VERY successful. While there is a ~11.X% difference between the two defensive stats and precision, precision is *not* the be-all-end-all stat that Spirit was (which enjoyed a difference of 33%+ versus strength).
Seireitei is crumbling and the Gotei is a shell of its former self. Ravaged by the plague, the surviving Shinigami struggle to maintain the balance, but with so few of them left, the work is taxing and their fortress-city has fallen to neglect. Spread thin across all fronts, their diminished presence has been noted by friend and foe alike.
The Arrancar have rebuilt Las Noches and are rallying. The throne remains empty, but self-styled Espada have risen up from among them and are vying for control, each one endlessly testing the others’ weaknesses. Too evenly matched for any one of them to claim the crown, they bide their time, waiting for the opportune moment.
On Earth, all seems well—but there is a war being fought in the shadows as the mortals find themselves lacking the protection they once had and so sorely need. The Quincy, having realized the oppressive specter of the Shinigami is no more, are flourishing, and are fighting the Hollow-breeds with renewed vigor.
