The power to use an independent growing game-like system that boosts the users' normal abilities or give new ones.

Also Called

  • The Gamer

Capabilities

Users of this power have a special "game-like system" that can give special abilities, attacks and/or boosts to the normal abilities of the users.

Applications

Variations

  • Experience (Type 1): The system automatically gives a booster to the user's parameters/abilities once the user reaches a certain condition (e.g. leveling up).
  • Experience (Type 2): Similar to the Type 1, in this case the system gives "points" (normally 1 at each level up) that the user can spend as they wish for ability boosts or addition of new abilities.
  • Points: The system gives "points" for specific actions (run for a certain time, fight against something or someone and win, help someone, etc.), that the user can spend as he/she wish for boost parameters (agility, defence, speed, strength, senses, etc.) or skills (aiming with range weapons, use magic, use weapons, etc.).
  • Object: The system requires "absorption", using or creating an object to unlock an ability or boosters. In the case that a specific object is required and that object in question is no longer available or no longer exists, the system will change the object with something similar (e.g. the system requires a 500 ml bottle but there are no more bottles of that volume, so the bottle will be changed to a 600 ml bottle instead, and so on).
  • Chip: The system shows itself like a plate with various shapes with empty points where a "virtual chip" can be inserted. Each chip can have different shapes and functions.
  • External Learning: Similar to the Object variation, the system give the ability of learn skills from teammate, for do this the user need to form a party and keep them until the skill is fully learned.

Limitations

  • Depending on the system's variation, the number of boosters and abilities that can be obtained changes.
  • Depending on the system's variation, it's possible to block or seal something special that the users could've achieved.
  • If the system uses a level-based growing with skill points at each level, depending on the maximum level that can be reached, it's possible the user may not reach the maximum level of each skill, leaving one or more unlearned or incomplete.
  • If the system forces the user to choose a class (look Class System), any growing will be limited to the parameters and skill sets of the particular class.
  • If the system forces the user to choose a class (look Class System), it's possible that the chosen class can't be changed.
  • In a points-based system, it's possible that the points needed to increase a parameter/skill are shared (For example: If users were to put points into a certain parameter/skill, they would be unable to input points to put into another parameter/skill, thus restricting them from maxing out certain parameters/skills).
  • In the External Learning variation, separation from the party or party member(s) that are the source of the skill may result in the reset of the learning, forcing the user to learn the skill from scratch.
