Hello DBU community. I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Holiday season. Merry Christmas/Freiza Day and Happy New Year/Cooler Eve. With the Holidays ending I will start to work on more updates and some content. The printable character sheet has been updated and I am working on my updates to the site this weekend. There has also been a ton of cool homebrew content released lately and I encourage everyone to check those out. Looking forward to a new year!

Happy Holidays and New Year. As we enter the season of joy and family I wanted to reach out to the community and thank everyone for the support and feedback. From now until the new year I will be relaxing and spending time with my family. During this time it is unlikely to be anything extremely new developed. I will still be available for questions and will be doing fixes and updates as I find them and they are pointed out. This is standard procedure for this time of year and I will start again on new content after the holidays!

Website > Made from grammar and edits to text on various pages. No major changes.

Today, I launched a few initiatives. I created a subreddit for DBU. I created a linktree site that will help centralize all the links and sites associated with DBU. I updated our Patreon page. I joined the RPGdesign Reddit discord server to help grow the community and get more feedback. I finally got around to shout outs for Patreon donators. I post a brief history about DBU as a whole in our subreddit. I reached out to a few contacts about PDF design, still not sure if this come to fruition – but it is a highly requested item. I made some small updates to the other DBU pages, group and the like.

Character Creation > Tier of Power > Added new section ‘Cost of Power’ – this section explains the increase cost of base ki points for attack, technique and ability types.

Shinjin Racial Trait Preview – WIP

Celestial Potential (Shinjin Trait). Your natural potential is unlocked from birth and you are more adept than other species. Once per combat encounter, you can reduce the negative effects of a single botch dice result by one (-1). Increase the number of times you can use Celestial Potential during a combat encounter by one (+1) for each tier of power reached. As an example, at tier of power three you can reduce the negative effects of up to three (3) separate botched rolls during a single combat encounter.

The effects of Celestial Potential stack with the effects of the Manifested Power Unlocked Potential.

Cosmic Efficiency (Shinjin Trait). You have absolute control of the flow of Ki throughout your body. This natural affinity allows you to use your ki in the most effective and efficient way. When using Ki Points for any reason, reduce the amount of required points by half (1/2) your Spirit modifier, to a minimum of two (2). This stacks with other talents and traits that also reduce Ki Point cost. However, regardless of the minimum required from other sources you must always pay at least a minimum two (2) Ki Point requirement. This minimum is increase by three (+3) for each tier of Power reached.

Cosmic Efficiency is always applied last after all other Ki reducing abilities, traits, or other such capabilities.

Far Seeing (Shinjin Trait). Part of your natural divinity as a Shinjin lets you can see past the natural barrier of reality and into the celestial. When making any of the following skill checks increase your natural result by 1d6, increase this bonus by +1d6 for each tier of power reached. Far seeing affects the following skills: knowledge (Any), Creature Handling, Clairvoyance, Perception, Use Magic, and Investigation.
