ok my idea in a nutshell is an Oni Ninja from Japan that has magic.
I figured he'd be a sneaky badass with ninja weapons and throw mojo to cover long range and help with being sneaky.so far;

-Oni is a 5pt. rip, but I've made peace with that
-since this concept is a real BP sink, I went with an aspected sorcerer to save on skill points(no conjuring)
-I think he needs an intuition tradition, that leads to Buddhism, which is plausable but I was thinking more like Shinto. except, the darkside of Shinto, point is, I don't think this guy is charismatic or particularly logical.
-Looking at taking Ninjutsu at 5bp with +1 to infiltrate and the Iaijutsu
-not gonna specialize until I get karma so unarmed skill group, athletics skill group,

I'm rambling,

1) is the increased reflex spell enough? should I burn out for some wired reflexes?

2) I feel like I depend on too many attributes, body, strength, agility,reaction, willpower, tradition ability for drain

3)I could go mystic adept, but I'd like to be a pretty badass spell slinger.

It seemed so straight foreward when I started (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wobble.gif)

These would be hurtfully expensive, essence-wise. If you don't have the money for synaptic boosters, go for the spell.

You're right about that. You could go adept instead, or cast Increase Attribute for some of of the stuff.
Of course, this further leads to your dependence on spell locks.

Karma sink. Closed combat fighters already are highly dedicated builds, as well as badass spell slingers. Going mystic adept on top of that...will likely not end well, unless you plan it out meticulously, start with most points dedicated to casting and prepare to sink a ton of karma into this.

Hardmaxing Magic seems like too much of a strain for this concept to me.
I'd also always put more points into caster Magic than adept Magic- it won't hurt to just have one or two power points at the beginning, but being limited to Magic 2 or 3 for spellcasting would be a pain in the ass.

and, even though i'm at a -4, I'd still like to astrally project. Ras nailed it though, 2 serious karma burn ideas in one character. i can just take spellcasting and counterspelling for magic, I won't start out super badass in the ninja skills if I want a good amount of spells. its tough

I would totally go Mystic Adept. In 4A, its better than people thing, due to some rules improvements involving splitting adept/casting Magic values.

Since you already have the Runner's Companion, try using 4a/German Karmagen(the most balanced/errata'd version. Attribute = Rx5, metatype karma cost = bp cost) for this - it should take the edge off having to min/max the heck out of a BP build. Try this on for size:

Oni: 25 Karma

Magic 6: 100 karma. (May want to swap things for Killing Hands/Critical Strike/penetrating strike if you're feeling more Unarmed)
1: Heightened Concentration(Digital Grimoire. Useful for sustaining spells on yourself, great reason to play msyadept)
1:(0.25x4): All four Adept Physical Attribute Boosts. (Its quite good. 7 dice and a simple action to boost a stat by the number of hits, for one drain. Should help with the Attribute problem.)
0.5: Adept Counterstrike
0.5: Motion Sense (this can reduce Visibility Modifiers by 2, can a martial arts maneuver. Combine the two, and you can saddle everyone -else- with the blind fire penalty while taking none yourself. Very ninja)
3: Mystic Adept Spellcasting.

Qualities: (70)
10 : Restricted Gear: Power Focus.
10 : Restricted Gear: Weapon Focus
20K: Mystic Adept
20: Martial Arts 2, Ninjutsu(Visibility -1, Infiltration)
10: Martial Arts 1, Tae Kwon Do (+1 Unarmed Combat when attacking multiple targets)

Maneuvers: (24)
4: Blind Fighting.
4: Riposte
4: Focus Will (helps with Drain.)
4: Two Weapon Style (Sword and Fist.)
4: Multistrike (Melee attacks can try to hit multiple people with the same complex action just by splitting the dice pool. With this, you can put a singe dice+modifiers on any secondary target that happens to be standing near the primary one for free, and do it even better with tae kwon do. More importantly, you can do it while Riposting(what? its a complex action), so if someone tries to hit you can not only parry/riposte and hit them back, but hit all their friends too.)
4: Iaijutsu

Tradition: Int-linked traditions are pretty decent, and they also mean you have a high initiative, which has nice synergy. Its also one of the hardest stats to raise. Since you're already taking a metavariant, you may want to consider trying to work Metagenetic Improvement(Intuition) into your qualities somehow - its like Exceptional Attribute, except better because it raises your minimum too, saving you ten points(in BP-gen.)

Spells(at -least-): (30)
5: Increase Reflexes
5: Heal
5: Levitate
5: Death Touch (at Drain of Force/2-2, overcasting this at force 12 will drop anyone with a body of 8 or less for only 4 drain, and you can claim +2 dice for only needing to touch a target instead of landing a solid blow. Shatter is another good option, for one more drain, but you can hit nonliving targets with it.)
5: Improved Invisibility
5: Silence
Other good options may be Interference, Mist(large drain, but makes a Visibility modifier = hits. With Edge use, you can easily surpass smoke -4/-6). Combat Sense is good, Trid Phantasm is always useful. Element Aura increases your damage, and gives your attacks Ap(half)


Foci: 104
Cash: 40Karma for 100,000Y: Power focus 4
Bonding to focus: 32 Karma
Cash: 16Karma for 20,000Y : Weaponfocus 4 (Since Reach factors into bonding cost, i'm going to assume a katana for a ninja. but other weapons are good too)
Bonding to Focus: 16 karma

=353 spent, 397 karma remaining for skills and attributes. That should be enough to get you started. Hope that helps.


Gear: Get yourself some good Contacts, Earbuds, skinlink them both, and get a Tacnet 2. Personalize Grip your melee weapons. Machine pistol with sticknshocks and a hidden arm slide for dealing with spirits. (I suggest an Ares Crusader with an auto-adjusting weight. Melee harden it, and you can parry with it too, but that uses the Clubs skill.)

Other options: Go completely unarmed, ditch the weapon foci and skills entirely. Juggle adept powers around a little, and try to fit in some martial arts that increase your damage value.

Hmm, I wonder if you could do a Mystic Adept focused on Summoning instead...

Spirits of Man could cast your spells for you, and they're good at aiding Stealth (Concealment & Guard powers), creating distractions (Accident, Confusion & Influence powers, plus Fear & Psychokinesis optional powers), and scouting (Enhanced Vision and Search powers, Assensing & Perception skills).

Pick a Mentor Spirit who gives you +2 dice for Spirits of Man (Owl from Street Magic is pretty good, from the core book Dog isn't bad, but Dark King looks a bit dangerous).

You'll just need Spellcasting 1 for a couple of spells which your Spirits can't emulate -- say, Increase Reflexes and Improved Invisibility, or Shapechange and Physical Mask -- and then have your Spirits of Man cast those on you.


So, take Magic 5 (4 adept / 1 wizard), then put a bunch of dice into summoning only one kind of Spirit:
- Magic 1
- Summoning 5
- Mentor Spirit +2
- Summoning Focus +3 (avail 12, 45kĄ)
- Specialization +2 (your first 2 points of Karma go here)
= 10 dice to start, 12 dice after your first mission. That's enough to reliably snag a force 3 or 4 Spirit, which is all you need to get good use from the Innate Spell power. Your Drain Resist will be ~10 dice (Intuition 5 + Willpower 5), so Force 3 or 4 spirits are pretty safe to summon in the middle of a run.

Ignore Binding for now, because your Charisma will probably suck if you go for an Intuition tradition. Focus on having one big Spirit of Man around all the time, and spend Edge to make sure you get a lot of services. Getting Binding -- and a decent Charisma -- will be useful eventually, but you won't have the points for it out of the gate. Same deal with Counterpspelling, IMHO: a good place to spend your Karma down the road, but hopefully not something you need for your first run.


I'm not too well versed in the martial arts system, but the Visibility Penalty trick sure looks sweet on paper.

hmmm
Generally I would advice the Karma System not the BP System
an Oni Ninja Adept can become a well roundet package
(you could even burn 1 Essencepoint for Synaptic Booster I and Muscle....Thingy for AGI +2 )
but adding a "Spellcaster-Package" is gonna make it difficult.
As a mystic Adept you should softmax MAG ( 3 for Spells 2 for Ki-Powers and Initiate later)
and for more IPs take Increased Reflexes & .....oO(Shit.... Zauberspeicher auf Englisch ?Spellstore ?)
There are alot of possibilities.
Please tell us wether you want to Play a Ninja Adept or Ninja Mystical Adept

@Nifft
with Magic 1 you can only Summon Force 2 Spirits !

I like many of those above me would suggest a combo route of mystic adept for a spell slinging Ninja makes a nice combination of physical skills / abilities (Very Ninja) and adds in the utility of a magic user (why climb the wall when I can silently float up it)

If you were not going Oni I would also suggest some disguise skills and maybe the fashion spell (I think thats the one what changes clothing) to sneak about in plain sight (Mask would do the same but is a active spell and if I'm right the fashion spell is only active when its used so wont stand out from a quick astral sweep like mask will). Oni just stand out to much to disguise well but I wouldnt suggest dropping it as I think the concept is very cool

I'm using the BP system because I don't have a game for this guy yet, so I can't assume I can use Karma gen.

The Mystic Adept seems like a natural salution, but I think it gimps my magic for very little return (what's worth taking my magic for spellcasting down? Improved reflexes? att boost?) plus no astral projection, which comes in handy for scouting and such.

-can a spirit of man be given spells the mage doesn't know?

- can focus will manuver be used for drain resistance? that would be awesome

No !
Spirit of Man (or other such Spirits) can only use those Spells that your Char allready has.

Yes, but you need 1 Complex Action to Fokus and 1 Complex Action to cast the Spell immediately afterwards.
So its 2 Complex Actions in a Row for a +2 Bonus.....
I wouldn't call that Awesome...interesting maybe,but not Awesome

with an Awesome Dance

Yes.

As far as the Mystic Adept thing is concerned :

If you just allocate 1 point towards adept powers, it won't hurt your casting/summoning that much, and leaves you with a lot of possibilities later in game. There's tons of adept powers that suit ninjas perfectly, you just won't be able to buy many of them at the start. In the beginning, even minor stuff like a few bonus dice to some skills would be a great benefit for this concept.
Not to mention how useful Adept Centering and Attunement can become later in the game.

The astral scouting thing seems interesting, of course- but it also means you'll have to buy two more skills on top of an already inflated skill set.
Spirits would most likely be better at doing this task.

I'd recommend picking the very basics- just Spellcasting, Summoning and probably Counterspelling (if your tradition has a spirit type with Magical Guard, even that could be neglected), this should leave some points for your physical skills.
Of course, making full use of spirits would involve Binding, but that can quickly become a pain in the ass drain-wise and will get hella expensive if you don't also have Enchanting and can craft your own binding materials (and i don't see where the character should get the BP for that on top of everything else under BP gen).

You'll also have to cut down on some areas outside of magic. As combat, stealth, perception and the physical stuff like Climbing and Acrobatics are central to the whole ninja thing, you'll find yourself with little to no points for social and technical skills- but that could fit well for a character who spent all of his live in a secluded ninja...training...fortress thing. Right?

I'm not too well versed in the martial arts system, but the Visibility Penalty trick sure looks sweet on paper.



The martial arts system in arsenal is pretty simple: There are a bunch of different styles, each with 4-5 different bonuses to varying things like blocking, parrying, damage, dodging, gyndodging, disarming, or reducing certain penalties. Each level of a Martial Art quality lets you pick a Style, and One Bonus. Now, for each level of the -quality- you have, you may learn up two Maneuvers, which allow you to further customize your options in combat for a few karma/bp. The maneuvers let you have neat things like offhand training, kicking for reach, or street-fighter combo your enemies.

Focus will CAN be used on drain, but it takes a complex action to use - and then you have to cast. Less useful in combat, but its quite useful during preptime, such as when you're casting high-drain spells or binding big spirits.

For visibility: Motion Sense, if it detects a target, may reduce the penalties by 2. Blind Fighting reduces the Target Hidden from -6 to -3, for melee only. Ninjutsu's benfit is a further -1 to the penalty. So with the proper training and preptime, you can cover an area in smoke/thermal smoke/petite brume manatech astral-smoke grenades, walk into it, and take no penalty for ganking everyone inside.

On astral scouting: Its perfectly doable for a mystic adept. You get the sense link spell - i think there are a few, but you want the one that lets you tap into a targets senses. Then, you summon watcher spirits. The drain is negligable, and you can afford to spam them easily. Instead of sending them to a target, and watching as they bang their head repeatedly against a simple Ward for the entire duration of your Service you use your Spell to keep an eye on them - like a magical remote control scout car - and a Service via your summoner/spirit link to guide them, again, like a remote control car, while scouting. In the ward example, you'd spend a service to say 'go here, try to find another way in from there'. And when the services are gone - whip out another! watcher spirits are cheap.

Spirits of Man -can't- be given spells you don't know. You have to know it to pass it along. Also, without binding, i think you only get to have one at a time. Still, they're rather great, due to Concealment. Also, kind of fitting for a mage/ninja to summon up his ancestors for help and advice, if you need an excuse from where they come from.

I'd also like to point out that Sprits with Guard, and monowhips are a glorious combination. Especially since Adepts can use Improved Skill to get a rather high Exotic Weapon skill.

One point in Adept buys you Traceless Walk: you can't be tracked, and foes get -4 to hear you.

One point of Magic in adept can buy you Enhanced Perception 4.

Two points of Magic in adept can buy you Combat Sense 4.

These are effects that are hard (or impossible) to otherwise get.

Nope. However, he can emulate a lot of spells with his natural powers. These powers can emulate a large suite of spells:
- Accident
- Concealment
- Confusion
- Guard
- Influence
- Search

+ optional powers:
- Fear
- Innate Spell (this is literally any spell YOU know)
- Movement
- Psychokinesis

The neat thing is that if you use Magic 2 to summon a force 4 spirit, you can have him cast one of your spells at force 4 and sustain it all day.

Accident is awesome. It's basically the win button in a chase, since your spirit can force a crash test every time it gets an initiative pass. Guard is similarly winsome: it prevents you from glitching. Fear is among the best ways to harmlessly remove muggles from a fight, and Force 4 is still high enough to do this with respectable efficacy. Confusion and Influence are nice ways to get past guards. Psychokinesis replaces the spell Magic Fingers.

Spirit powers are awesome.

You can buy EP 3 and CS 3, both of which are 3/4 as awesome as advertised in my previous post, which is still rather awesome.

Wrong. That's been fixed in 4thAnniversary. It is not your *effective* magic attribute. Its your full one. 4a changed mysadepts to get their full magic for pretty much everything. They even use that specific example in the rules example on page 195.

It also has ramifications for Overcasting. a 2/2 split magic mystic adept can overcast at force eight, not four. Other random things like Foci/foci addiction, what you roll to pass through Wards(magic+charisma, i believe), and other small things here and there

Interesting. So a Magic 6 MystAd could basically put only one point of her Magic into spellslinging, go with skill 5 in Spellcasting and pump out force 6 spells with normal drain and 6 dice+-mods to roll. Not that bad...

what force you can cast/ summon at, and pp are the only thing limited by the split attribute. Everything else is done with the full attribute

As far as I understand the wording of the text and example, the force you can cast it at is not limited by the split attribute. The only thing affected by the split is your dicepool when casting/summoning. Nothing else.

Pretty much. However. A msytic adept with only 1 dice in Spellcasting will have a Dice Puddle, not a Dice Pool to work with. High force is great, but for some/most spells, you need Net Hits too (like Improved Reflexes. Still need 4 hits to get all your passes.)
