Major Update! Opinions needed. Mar 31, 2018 3:37:40 GMT

I was about to make a large number of edits, but then felt as though I should ask the community if all these updates are even a good idea. Some of these ideas are from some helpful members of the community, but everybody is human after all (except DIO, duh). So without further hesitation, here's a list of ideas. If you like the changes, say something. If you don't, say something. If you don't care, say something;
- Change the Newcomer Tier
So the specific change I have in mind would be to allow Newcomers to start with a Power instead of being forced to use their Lineage Trait to achieve a Stand/Dynamism/Contortion which also forces a Player into Gifted Tier which could be overwhelming or just lame if you wanted your character to build up a little more. Don't worry though; with this change, starting with a Power is still [Optional] so you can have a chance to develop your new character an extra bit more.
- Change Stand Stats
With the change to Newcomer Tier, I would like to change the number of SSP (Stand Stat Points) available at all Power Tiers; Newcomer = 10 SSP, Gifted = 15 SSP, and Ascended = 20 SSP. For those familiar with Stand Stats, you may be thinking that this huge increase in SSP seems like an overload, but there is one other change coming with Stand Stats; the Potential Stat which will dictate the number of Focus Abilities a Stand user is able to register for their Stand's Power. This increases the spread of Stats to allocate SSP into and also gives a bonus to Dynamism/Contortion users (they don't suffer from a limit to the number of Focus Abilities they may register). Granted, Stands are still superior to Dynamism/Contortion, but now having a Stand plus a Dynamism/Contortion may seem more agreeable. All Stand Types will be able to make use of this Stat, including Bound and Phenomenon Stands.
- Stand Types and Rolling
Based on community suggestion/feedback, rolling the dice for your Stand will become [Optional] and for fun (aka, no rewards for rolling the Stand Type Dice). Nothing super complicated either like a limit to the number of Sentient Stands or ACT Stands. For better or for worse, we will probably just have more Sentient and ACT Stands than canon Jojo. However, if the community wants a proper reward for those who rolled the Stand Type Dice, then perhaps the reward could be Currency or the chance to obtain an exclusive type which either I or the community could make up out of thin air without Jojo canon's help. Regardless, Stand Type Rolling will be optional.
- New Stand Type
Wearable Stand - A Stand worn like clothing, a skin-suit, or armor. Wearable Stands are visible to normal people, similar to Bound Stands, yet still possess Stand Stats despite not being given commands, unlike Bound Stands. However, Stand Stats do not function normally for Wearable Stands; Strength determines the physical strength of the Stand user while wearing the Stand, Speed determines the physical speed of the Stand user, and Range determines the size of the Wearable Stand. Since the Stand user and the Wearable Stand do not share damage, Strength and Speed are reduced. The Ability Stat functions the same.
Strength - x0.5 (50%, half)
Speed - x0.5 (50%, half)
Range - x1 (100%, normal)
- And more if anyone can think of anything else. I do have more stuff in mind, but I'm losing my train of thought.
As mentioned earlier, feel free to say something about this such as making a suggestions or just cheering/jeering for change. Regardless of your opinion - say something to help me understand what this site needs to become greater!
