Put It On A Shirt - a ridiculous RP about anything and nothing

Long ago, the land of Oluasia was peaceful. One could simply wear fancy vests and jackets with no problem. The clothes were bright and decorated with many colors, patches, and designs, each giving the wearer certain magical abilities.

But now, the Dark Lord Genericus has forced the men and women of the land to only wear shirts. The once-varied magical clothes are now replaced with plain white tees, giving no magical boosts whatsoever, in an attempt to control the populace.

In an attempt to rebel, the citizens started embroidering their magics on clothes in secret. They would steal jerseys, or even make their own designs on the land's white tees. The Dark Lord Genericus, of course, was very dissatisfied with all of this, and has thrown them in the dungeon.

It is now your chance to shine. You have a plot to break out of these cold, white walls, and you're going to act on it. Using a stash of makeshift weapons and spells you learned, you're going to break out and confront the Dark Lord. But be warned, friend - his guards are not like ones you have seen before. Some are powerful, some are wicked, and some may not even be who they used to be...

Rules

Joining
You can join at almost any time. The exceptions are during fights, places where there would be no ability to join logically, or in the middle of a significant event. These will usually be marked, and you'll be put on a waitlist until you can join.

Gameplay
This is a d20 game, with some modifications to that based on the system, described below. Death will be permanent. The one exception is if you have some device that can save your life, but if it does, it'll be mentioned when you would've died. If it's said that you're dead, you're dead. Also, no metagaming, no godmodding, etc. The standard stuff.

Player Limit
You can have up to three players, but I recommend you don't post them all at once. There is no limit to the total number of players (across all users), however, note that the bigger the party size, the stronger bosses will become. A boss battle with 11 people is different from a boss battle with 5.

Mechanics

I fully intend to make some new mechanics later on, but here's what I've got for now. These may get revised if I have to balance something, but if I do, I'll make sure to mention that.

Embroidery
Embroidery is the core mechanic of the game. You can use Patches to alter your clothing, and gain extra abilities or stats. These are usually things like defense boosts, or extra spells and abilities.

Patches can be removed as long as they are not permanent. If they are, choose wisely - having patches that conflict, or having too many patches can cause serious, disastrous consequences for anybody who attempts to wear (or in some cases, even attach) them. Removing patches is no easy feat, however - removing one badly will destroy it, and special tools are required to take them off. (You could also cut it off with the shirt around it, but that'd ruin your shirt which is also not good.)

You can also sew designs into them. This requires more time, effort, and material than patches, however, knowing the right designs can end up being better than any patch. These are permanent, however, and they will conflict with patches - so be careful!

Spells
Spells are special abilities which have magical effects. You won't get too many spells, but that's OK - items and patches will take care of that for you. Unlike patches, spells do not conflict simply by being able to use them, and you can know them forever without consequences.

There are three types of spells - Instant, Encounter, and Daily. Instant spells may be used whenever. Encounter spells may only be used once per battle (but certain items or actions can recharge this.) Daily spells may only be used once per in-game day. I'll mention when Daily spells have been recharged.
