Re: OCC/ Discussion
Okay, I think I'm done with my character build. I don't mind sharing just to make sure I didn't screw up (also, my character isn't exactly subtle :-p). I took Solar Sustenance from the Light Powers power profile, which had it at 1 point (not sure how the math added up on that).

Thanks in advance! ^_^

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Should have the first post up this afternoon. My seven year old came home sick from school on friday and it turmed out he had strep throat. So now the entire house has it :). But saw the doctor today so we should be better soon.

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Tessaract: Healing doesn't have a resistance check to trigger the "Attack & Effect" trade-off, though, does it? It seems like it would be uncapped.

Krsnik: Looks good to me :) I didn't try to do any of the math involved, but I don't see any problems just reading through it.

GM: Oof, sorry to hear it. I hope you feel better soon!

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Quick question about the IC thread, are the PCs also thinking that their new team assignments wouldn't be until sometime next year, or are they in the loop that they're about to be called up? Just wondering if we'd be doing our own thing, or figuring we'd need to keep our calendars free for the day :)

@ GM: Hope you all feel better soon!

@ Scarab: Thanks! I have a M&M excel file character builder, so I think my math at the bottom is right? I just noticed that I accidentally wrote the wrong value for a power in a box, but the total should still be good. x_x

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Actually keep coming up with you having 91 points spent in powers. So either your total is wrong or you have an extra point left.

Re: OCC/ Discussion
In reply to Tesseract (msg # 61):

Yeah, I just noticed that. I forgot to put the flaw for Solar Sustenance in the excel file. It should be 91. I think I'll put that last point into 2 skill ranks for deception.

Thank you! ^_^

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Mmmmmm....unless Crucible is a surprising choice or Scarab does something really, really strange we seem to have a dearth of melee combatants.

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Terraform: Looks like a fun character :)

Legacy: Scarab isn't exactly full melee but she is mostly a close-range operator, for what that's worth.

In general: I'm still around, just waiting to hear what Scarab should be expecting IC before I post :)

I hope what I posted IC was okay. Krsnik is going to be one of the newer members rather than someone who is established at vigilantism.

Re: OCC/ Discussion
what I had in mind was everyone simply posting an opening for where their characters are, what they are doing. If that's not to your liking PM me and we can work something out.

I'm pretty sure everyone has their characters done so we should be ready to go. If anyone has any issues or I kissed a PM or something let me know and we will gwt it worked out.

Lets start playing!!!!!

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Oh, that works fine for me :) I was just wondering what we would be expecting IC at this point in time. I'll figure Scarab is expecting a year off before she gets called up, sounds like? I'll get to posting shortly.

Re: OCC/ Discussion
So, was looking at your sheet, Terraform and wondering what exactly EMP shielded is doing for you in game terms?

Re: OCC/ Discussion
So it is Immunity to your own power. OK. Just curious. So while building Legacy.....which is a pain, by the way. I came up with this - just as a random thought exercise. The only thing that this really weakens you is with your Transform. It reduces the amount of stuff you can do and what you can affect. You should also still have a couple of points left over. Like I said something for you to think over.

-3 Strength
-1 Close Combat
-8 Equipment

Advantage:
   Ranged Combat 3
   Power Attack
   Accurate Attack

Immunity Own Powers 1 (This takes out the EMP shielded from all of your powers as you don't really need it any more)

Magnetix:
    Ranged Damage 12
     AE: Nullify (Ranged, Technology) 12
     AE: Move Object 12 (Limited: Metals Only)
     AE: Transform 6 (Limited: Technology to Technology)

Terraform:
    Earth Control 12
     AE: Stone Grip 12: Ranged Affliction (Resisted by Dodge, Overcome
by Damage; Hindered and Vulnerable, Defenseless and
Immobilized), Extra Condition, Limited Degree
    Enhanced Strength 4
    Protection 5 (Impervious 4)
    Flight 1 (Limited: Platform)

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Thanks for taking the time to consider it. I will compare the two and see which one seems to work out best for me. Hopefully your own build has emerged to your liking.

Re: OCC/ Discussion
So it looks like both Crucible and Outreach have been on today and they are the only two who haven't posted. So are we waiting on them or on someone/something else?

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Just to make sure, should the four of us go ahead and respond to our activation calls, rather than wait for Crucible and Outreach to make introductory posts?

Re: OCC/ Discussion
Yeah and she goes up against people with much better powers then her. If you decide to read it, it is very grimdark at times.
