We do have a plot running, but it's going to be something you have to be out and about to find.  You'll see a "----------->> Facades Alleys" when you hit it.  The clues in this plot are, well, you don't find them in neat, clean, well lit places.  Not normally, anyway.

Sorry about my vanishing act, it seems I've been having some text based games burnout all around, even in a few run by close internet pals of over a decade.  I'll try to catch up on some of the more recent stuff and-...

Ozzy is sporting the Andy look now? How long have I been out again?

Could I perhaps get a quick reference sheet for post BBQ Weston City before I collapse under the weight of catch up before I even start working out where to jump in again?

Re: OOC The Quarterly
The big stuff?

Ozzy got mutated into what he is now. Yes, he looks something like Andy, now. He got mutated in the line of duty, trying to bust the people who were selling the mutagen as a drug.

Clarissa got mutated into an angel-winged catgirl when she got stabbed with two syringes' worth of the mutagen by a jealous classmate.

Ozzy and Clarissa are now happily married!

Mirage, one of the Legacy, died. Her funeral is tomorrow.

That's the major recent stuff.

Oh my.  I'm not exactly in a rush, (though I'm hoping to think of and post something somewhere just for sake of getting outof my slump by tomorrow night).  It's more that since this game's been a classy one, just a bit more pressure to treat the events that have gone on with respect as opposed to "I'll just jump in whenever and wherever" is all.

My advice is to speak up at the wedding reception, which is at Meg's place.  And by the way, you are a) assumed to have moved in with Halkor and company, b) assumed to have attended the wedding, and c) assumed to have seen how much the groom's father could show his butt too.

All safe assumptions... Well, as safe as that last one can be anyways.

EDIT: vvv Well you mentioned that in the first place.  But thank you for the reminder.  Hopefully Meg's house works out better than the average house with non-euclidean geometries.

Welcome aboard, even in the small chunk I've played in this game it probably one of the nicest Super games I've seen on RPOL.

Meaning that as an actual compliment, and not just because the majority of my exposure has been "Oh good lord the GM made Fing Fang Foom a bishonen and-" then spiraling off downhill like a top fired from a cannon.

Also, had to look up who Judge Mills Lane was.  I guess it's a good thing that it's easy for me to stay in character for my many characters who don't watch much TV because I don't watch much myself?

I only remembered that particular judge's name for one special reason.

I find it a little funny that during all these Mutagen scares, Matt's off doing his own thing unaware of it really.  Because he could deal with the problem simply by passing through.

Unless mutation was desired by the players, then he'd never think of it ;D

Very true.  Part of why I'm trying to play Matt in a way that he's not as quick on the uptake of 'what exactly could I do with my abilities via loose comic book logic?' as I am OOC.  His first (and only) fight was won by way of Football Tackle and headbutts. How fancy.

  While normally it's a fight to get my abilities to even be acknowledged to function ever in games like this (count of games with mental insulation, many.  Count of games where I was allowed to ever have it work? slim), Weston City is classy enough that I'm going the other way around to make sure I don't throw my abilities weight around it it would bother someone.

  Well, maybe unless they are trying to punch the head off my shoulders.

Out of sight, for the most-part. You'd still be able to hear muffled footsteps and rustling of clothes, but the sound itself would be slightly dampened. If you could sense any type of Aura's, you could see her plain as day, but otherwise, just invisible to the naked eye.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
So I've been running games in the giant comics universe for about four years now. And it has occured to me a lot has happened. We have currently two of the originals still playin, myself one of them. So the idea has occured to me of starting over. Paras just a rumor, no supers registration act, no Department of paranormal activities, no Legacy amd Weston without the moniker, superhero capital of the world. What is everyones thoughts on this? I would like the current players to discuss and eventually vote on this.

Um.....

Yes, yes, and more yes.

It'd be awesome.

Though that would almost mean you'd have to grab up the old Legacy members, and I mean the OLD legacy members. You could always just have them cameo every now and again with a new cast of original characters. Of course, that's assuming you want to start over with a similar timeline of characters.

I'd be up for it. Heck, it'd give me an excuse to write up a new and more interesting character....or a fun one. Maybe both? Yeah, both.

I really have to say: I enjoy the Giant Comics games, and starting over from the beginning would be absolutely friggin' awesome.

Also, why don't we have an actual comic book yet? That'd make my decade.

Starting over..? That does sound intriguing. Though I hope we're not pulling the plug on this one. It has A LOT of history behind it.

That said, maybe it would be time to do something different (at least for me anyway).

I'll stick with Fiona for the reboot, I think. I'm enjoying playing her, but I'd also like to see how her story would play out without an established presence of paras to help her along. And she's already college student age in this continuity.

Speaking of which, what will happen to this game now?

Re: OOC The Quarterly
I think more or less everyone who used to play here is now in New Beginnings, so all the attention has shifted to there. Was the idea that both games would run concurrently? Personally, I was under the impression that the plan was to phase out this game and just focus on the new one, but if we're going to keep both going, I'll happily go for that.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Because Justice keeps coming up with new superhero universes heres a new game in a little different vein than Giant Comics.


In this world no super powered beings exist and technology is fairly close to real world. History unfolded pretty much the same. The only difference from the world we live in is that masked vigilantiism has been a part of American Culture and eventually the worlds since the 1920s.

Crimefighters have infiltrated every part of our society and are now a part of normal everyday life. These Vigilanties come in two varieties, sanctioned and unsanctioned. Without getting into too much detail, sanctioned heroes have government backing, unsanctioned heroes do not.


if this sounds interesting to you hop on over and check out the game

Real Life has been keeping Justice and I rather busy, including me working full time, and the impending addition to the family due in early December.  Given my health, I'm high risk, and I am already sick of seeing the doctors as often as they want to see me.

I'm classified as high risk because I am diabetic.  Then there's my age.  Neither factor can I change, so . . .yeah.  We're hoping my health doesn't cause malformation of the cardiac tissues of the baby, but we won't know anything about that for another month, because the baby is too small right now to actually see much.  With regards to nursing school, long story there, but we can leave it at Real Life has some sharp teeth.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Yeah, if the mother's sugar is too high when conception occurs, the average is 50% or better that the developing cardiac tissues do not form correctly.  And the older a woman is, the higher chance of genetic defects due to potentially aberrant development of the ova before conception.  In other words, getting old sucks for you, and for your potential offspring.  I did warn Justice, if we have twins or triplets, we're done having kids and I WILL have my tubes tied after that.

I've been furry, with various complications in my life ranging from diabetes (quite mild in my case and readily controlled with minimal medication) and being diagnosed as autistic (at age 48... I blame my parents for never allowing me to get a psych evaluation before), to having dealt with a period of homelessness and loss of the job I enjoyed for 15 years. Currently, I'm returning to school and finally (some 2 decades later) getting to put something from my major in botany to use now that we've forced Dad to allow me to have a vegetable garden.

I do work full time thee days, so I can be fairly assured that the posting rate won't go batshit insane often.  Doing what I do for work is exhausting, so I tend to hit the hay an hour or so after work unless I have bad insomnia that night.  Given that neither of my parentals is in great health (nearly lost my Dad to lung Cancer this past year), I try hard to spend time with them when I can.  Tomorrow (well, later today) we are doing a Father's Day cookout at my parents, all my Dad asked for this year was to get to see his daughters for Father's Day.  I am surprising him with a 1:25 scale model of a Olds 442 like he had before I was born.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
So here's what the other gms and I have come up with for restarting this game.

Five years have passed, Hunter has retired to join the senate and is now halfway through his third term. Thanks in no small parts to his efforts Paras have gained larger acceptance and there are now a number of anti-discrimination laws in place. As a result The NPA has moved it's efforts onto the international stage, focusing on other countries where Paras are still subject to discrimination as bad, or worse than America once had.

Excelsior has received sanction from the UN to form a team of paras recruited from around the world to deal with global threats. They operate from a space station orbiting the earth.

Technology has advanced at a rapid pace, there are many devices once considered sci-fi that are now commonplace items. (more details on this later)



For those that were in the other game and may be confused, Truth and I have had a lot going on lately (including but not limited to our first child being on the way) and I had taken a break from rpol in general. Now we're at a time (and I'm in the mindset) to try something again, and there seems to be definite interest in rebuilding this game and I'm willing to give it another start.

Five years having passed means that most of the New Age Defenders are now adults, and most of the Legacy has either retired or died. (Dragon Fist is the only one so far to express interest that hasn't already died, Hotwire has checked in, but he has yet to speak up) This will mean the younger heroes will have had to step into their shoes and perhaps some new heroes have emerged (if any of you wish to create a new character or we happen to pick up a couple new characters) I would like for everyone to get in touch with me via pm, let me know if you are interested in continuing, and what your characters been up to in the last five years and how they've changed/grown.

  You know you've made it when there is a space station for super heroes.  Though it's been so long I'll need to remind myself what little Matt has even done here, compared to the (still short) list in New beginnings.  This game did have Flash Gordon style aliens going for it though, on that front.

  When they get back to the US, I'll be sure to mention to my pals that you are trying to pick things back up.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Regardless of who came along or if it was just Matt, I got the impression it would be more sorting out what was done during the time skip, rather than an active thread.

That said, Matt spending that time out in space sounds like a great way to have him have done a lot of ridiculous over the top stuff while most people back on Earth still have basically never heard of him.

Helps that by then, he'd be more comfortable with himself to return to Earth under his own power if need be as well, if you wanted to shuffle off the Space Men into the background full time.

probably more like 54, game time went on for about two years after this games start, which started six months after the last games end, which probably lasted about six months.

So it's been 7 years since the beginning of this game, and 8 since the public emergence of paras.

I would imagine that Painter has thwarted his evil activities a number of times, but should Rodger be avoiding using Branding Beam on you (out of courtesy and honoring Ozzy's dislike of it from their first clash) or making a point of zapping Painter with it most of the time?

I say make a point of zapping him, if you want. After that first encounter in the mall, whenever it's you in one of your "Ancient Spirits of Evil" forms, he'd start mostly focusing on keeping the crowds safe, and let one of the others take the spotlight by taking you down.

Okay. Be warned that the beam's secondary effects differ from form to form, with the actual payload (the tracking signal) being the main constant between the versions. And that by now, Rodger is familiar enough with his magic to know the uses of that tracker as a remote target for various 'horror mark' effects in other spells.

I was just kind of hoping to let someone else get a chance, since we seem to have some new faces, before one of the Old Guard swoops in to do something. Besides, Ozzy may not have joined up with Bill on his space station, but he *is* an experienced mercenary who's come out on top against all sorts of nasty crap. He *knows* Rodger's not really a threat, and kind of doesn't want to bother if he doesn't have to.

That said, if nobody else bites by, say, Monday or Tuesday, Ozzy can reluctantly spring into action if you want.

I think that Dane might find Rodger tricky to beat up, if he gets the Coinshield active before you attack. Lina's powers bypass that defense and could give me trouble enough to need to break out some of the nastier spells.

Well, if Dane gets me before I re-activate the Coinshield, or does something that takes me out of The Rich Man form back to my own, I'm an easy foe for him to defeat. That particular power of the form just happens to be exceptionally good protection against brawling and brick types (but does nothing against energy attacks, mental powers, or any sort of spell even if it produces an effect that it would normally work against).

Re: OOC The Quarterly
That works too. However, you won't be able to reverse someone being bonded/released from Rodger's system that way or spells that alter the settings of the subordinate suits, unlike freeing them from other sorts of spells he casts on them. So, you could certainly unmelt the coach and return him to flesh, if your power goes far enough back in time, but he's still a henchclown with the odd biofield and powers associated with that status.

It was (and may still be) a huge headache for him, with hints of serious legal complications in his life resulting from it.

Both of those curses are single-target, afflicting one person. Neither is all that complex of an effect (one produces random (edible? rubber? who knows?) chickens when the cursed tries to take something out of a container or pocket; the other afflicts them with frogs in their hair, frogs in their clothes, frogs pretty much everywhere). And as I believe we discussed before, it should be quite easy for you to negate Rodger's cast spells given your control of time and pseudo-mystical abilities.

So we blew him to bits repeatedly until his suit unlocked, and our bosses returned him to normal. Got it. Although this had to have happened after he already married, given the one death and rebirth that happened in play.

Hopefully Rodger can still view him as a friend of sorts.

Most of the Cafe Staff are actually underage, some of them far younger than is even normally legal.  They're runaways, previously homeless, or emancipated.  They wouldn't know (some of them) what it is, but if it sounded alcoholic, they'd say that there's no alcohol available.  There is a reason the Cafe does not bother with alcohol.

Dealing with major complications in the pregnancy, I'm on total bed rest, and I sleep a lot.  I mean a LOT.  Literally, walking slowly up one flight of stairs just took my breath away.  So Justice and I been pretty distracted with trying to make sure this baby arrives healthy, and I make it through in one piece.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Due to preexisting health conditions and my age, my obstetrician put me on total bedrest at 29 weeks to prevent me from going into preeclampsia, which can be fatal for mama and baby if it is not caught and handled carefully.  My normal 'day job' is highly stressful, and my blood pressure had gone into the earliest stages of preeclampsia due to it.  I didn't feel good, decided to skip work in favor of going in to the doctor instead (I am automatically a high risk pregnancy due to being a diabetic) and after she triple checked my blood pressure, I spent the night in the hospital.  The next morning my OB told me I was off work until at least 6 weeks postpartum, and we were going with bedrest to try and buy the baby enough time to fully develop.  If I went into full out preeclampsia she would have to take the baby by emergency c-section.  So I have been doing my best to follow doctor's orders and take it easy.  Really easy.  So I pretty much do a lot of sleeping, drinking water, and keeping my feet up to prevent blood clots and edema.  My free advice to the ladies who play, is to get your babies born early, don't wait until you're at almost four decades to do it.  I have been told if I get pregnant again after this, odds are good it will kill me.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Anything over 37 is considered high risk. When I did my OB internship we'd put mum's over 37 on bed rest at 29 weeks regardless of any initial signs of preeclampsia. I'm glad your OB is being aggressive with your care and please be very careful. **hugs**

  I'll be 40 in May, and I'm a type 2 diabetic (have been since I was about 24).  First child was easy as pie and I had no trouble with him.  Ten years (almost eleven) years later, this one is being very difficult, so I plan to get my tubes tied when this one arrives.  I can't risk trying for any mire children after this, even though I admit that I wish I could, because Justice is such a GOOD Daddy to the one I already came with.  My son, at 8, literally thanked me for getting him such a good step-daddy when I brought Justice home.  So I am keeping him and following doctor's orders. :)

To all the rest of you good players here:

I'd like to reiterate my apology to you as well. Real life has thrown me some good smacks, which blocked my Muse for a good while. But, I believe I've gotten through the rough patches and am willing to jump back into things again. Now, it'll just be a matter of where, but I look forward to RP'ing with players both old and new in the coming days.

Thank you, he's enjoying lots of cuddles and meeting his paternal grandparents.  He's loving wrapping them around his little fingers just like he has his other grandparents wrapped around his fingers, but since his wishlist is the simple and short one (cuddles, food, clean butt, and more cuddles), it's not so bad.  Merry Christmas to all, and I hope you're all having a happy holiday too.

I'll be working, and using WiFi at the various ports we're in, but posting will be sporatic. And expensive. F&%$ing expensive.

Re: Police and the portal.

Meg, Mittens made a portal directly from the Cafť area to the police station. I was on the other side of it with the regular cops, but had no idea what could be perceived from the police side.

Would her portal be aiding ease in police communication via radio, or causing more havoc?

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Causing more havoc right now, there's a jamming signal messing up all RF in the Apokryphos area, not that anyone there has paid attention to the police band yet, so the portal is permitting the jamming signal to hit the main 911 switchboards too.

If the jammer is on the ship I could find it or have a relay signal go through my system to balance out the loss of connection. That's entirely up to you.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Magic still works fine.  The jammer itself is a small, portable one, not on the ships, so you have to be where it is to find it.  You can't fix the jamming if you're on the ship, because they dropped the jammer off when they reached the ground.

The Jammer is a rectangular box about the size of a standard business briefcase, weight is approximately 40 pounds.  Daystar will be more than capable of picking it up and carting it off.  There is a handle on the side, like a briefcase handle.

I fail to comprehend why someone would leave merely for thinking that "I cannot come up with another crowning moment of awesome," Matt.

For example, in another game I play in, my character managed to shatter Bifrost and take down Loki using a healing spell. I don't exit the game just because I did the impossible. I stay, and play on.

Chronic health issues are the pits.  Being diabetic is bad, but not being able to get it managed because of the lack of time (for personal care of self even) means that it will only get worse.  I don't have the major secondary side effects yet, but I am currently going blind in one eye because I can't get the time to manage my sugar the way I need to.  And because I can't get that time, I can't get the cataract fixed either.

Mostly curious what happens with the lone surviving alien under metaphysical guard by Matt's influence he trapped in the pavement.

Capturing badguys is easy.

Making sure they can't wipe their own memories, self destruct, get teleported/portaled/erased from the time stream, etc, is where all the real hard work comes in.

If the answer is "Oh god, that breaks our script" then whoops oh no Matt 'forgot' to deal with them.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Just wanted to point out, for those that are not aware, as a founding member (and former leader) of The Legacy, Dragon Fist is one of the most famous superheroes in the world. He was known to be a "moral inspiring type" before going all grimdark after the legacy disbanded spending less time in the public eye.

In short, meeting him is a BIG deal and Daystar has balls of steel for giving him orders.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Daystar isn't native to this dimention, right? So it would be like visiting Mars and learning about their local legends, bumping into one, and then giving him a command.

....yep! Balls of steel! :D

Can't wait for how interactions go with Dragon Fist after the incident settles down.

Antoinette, is, well... you'll have to excuse her for acting like Dragon Fist is just another para. She kinda treats everyone equally because of the way her brain is wired. (On the bright side, this also means Antoinette admires him a lot) :D Might be refreshing for Dragon Fist that someone wants to treat him like anyone else, but I guess I'll have to find out! He'll at least have a fan girl out of Mittens.

She's also an absent-minded professor, so it might simply be that the fact Dragon Fist is fighting with us hasn't even caught up with her yet. XD

Meanwhile, Maverick IS star-struck, but I haven't posted him yet because I haven't decided if he's there and spying, or not.

You got that right!  =^.^=

As for why Mits hasn't freaked out yet, I'll use the excuse of "Hasn't been on Earth for the past five years.  And when she left Paras were supposed to be a brand new thing as far as the public eye was concerned," for why Mits wasn't aware of Dragon Fist being super famous.  In fact, this is the very sort of thing that prompted me to chose Outer Spaaace as my time-skip adventure.  'Cause player not knowing the who's-who and the what's-what for the past five years lines up perfectly with character not knowing.

As for why she isn't yet rambling about how amazing Lifelight, Seraph, and Daystar are, well...  She's getting to that.  ;)  Matt took priority because he's the one that got teamed up with Dragon Fist.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
@Mittens Df would have been famous before hand. He's basically one of the first superheroes, Along with Peregrine, Mirage, Hotwire, Hunter, and Enigma (three of which are dead) You (and others) can find info on the Legacy in the Notable names thread link to a message in this game , and other characters in the settings thread link to a message in this game both of which are recommended reading for EVERY player, though I'm still working on adding the rest of the characters (including villains) into the first one.

@Antoinette Daystar did mention doing research and there was a bit about his AI giving him info on the Legacy in his premiere in the cafe. It does fit the character, it just amuses me as it's the basically like if Vigilante or Flamebird walked right into a crime scene with Superman or Batman there and just immediately took charge.

Remember Maverick is now capable of actively participating so don't feel limited to have him just spying (Unless he's just waiting for a sneak attack) he has his own 'super-tech' and has been trained by Mr. Hurt and his title of "world's most dangerous man' is NOT hyperbole.

Peregrine: Charlize Theron

Dragon Fist: Jet Li

As the Museum scene wraps up we'll be having some 'free roleplay' where the heroes can disperse, converse, and do other 'not actiony' things. It is currently late afternoon, between 4 and 7.

After that's been going on a while we'll skip forward to late at night and we'll have some more action scenes (hopefully enough players can choose between)

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Okay So I've moved the timeline around a bit. The current para age began about 2006, the legacy were founded in 2008 and disbanded in 2018 after ten years of being the world's greatest superteam. By the time they disbanded Dragon Fist was the only founding member left along with the latter editions.

It is currently 2023 in the early spring.

EDIT: added a new organization to the setting known as the Brain bank

The Brain Bank.: A government research lab made up of the greatest minds in the country, design things for the DPA and Strike team alpha, do 'parahuman forensics' for SCU's across the country, and study parahuman abilities and para-tech. Recruits parahumans with more cerebral abilities.

Awesome! Definitely keep me posted about it.  I've missed Paragon City, I'm fairly sure I was on the Liberty Server.  I forget the name of the Task Force, but it was the one that took about 8 hours to complete, it had to do with travelling to some alternate space based reality.  It wasn't the one dealing with the Evil versions of the primary heroes, I think that was a separate one.  It's been a long time since I've played.


Looking forward to slipping on some boots again :)

My glucometer read me at 20.  Someone else I knew coded when his sugar hit 17, paramedics had to resuscitate him twice that time, so yes, it was a close call. And I never lost consciousness, although I was pretty shaky and I knew I was having a problem.  My supervisor wouldn't let me off the line long enough to check my sugar before it got that bad.  So they had to shut the line off instead when it got that far.  Then the nurses at work had trouble getting my sugar to come up and stay up.  My fingers look like pincushions.

Even without considering all the other good reasons to stick around?

A surprisingly rare for one is being allowed to run with a light shrug explaining your existence long term (both in and out of game) in a world with heaps of background lore.

In a genre where where immunity from anything to mind control or alien parasites outside of these games gets me "But it ruins my plot if you're immune to... I mean..."

Being immune to background lore is a real mind blower to get on top.  It is the free casio keyboard they throw in with your family trip to Disney Land.

Okay everybody, the museum seen is just about wrapped up.

Truth and I will have to discuss some plot points for the timeskip (we had already done that, but I've mostly forgotten by now.) I also plan on adding more info to the setting threads, so look out for that.

Feel free to post amongst yourselves while we work on that, otherwise we'll try and get something new up as soon as possible.



In personal news I should be starting a job on the 15th, and will likely be extremely exhausted (partially because it's manual labor, partially because it'll be my first time working since first going on disability ten years ago) so things will likely continue to be slow for the foreseeable future.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Couple things I've added to the Setting and Notable Names threads that may have been missed because they were edits.

The Camp: Though the offical name is the rather bland name of "The Camp" It has many unoficial names such as Para Camp and Hotwire's school of Superheroics. The Camp is run by former Legacy member Hotwire who offers training to Parahumans who wish to use their powers for good as well as genetic testing and ways to activate powers safely.

Freedom Fighter: Cpt. Daniel Thomspson was a soldier in Afghanistan who joined shortly after 9/11. In 2005 His squad was ambushed and killed, and then Lt. Thompson was left paralyzed. He was recovered by the early forms of Dapartment X, the parahuman based millitary branch that handles strike team alpha and othe para projects. Daniel was kept in suspended animation for 10 years while the government finished the L.I.B.E.R.T.Y. system. An advanced nanotech system that attaches to Daniels spine, allowing him to walk and increasing his physical capabilities. It also extends into a set of high tech armor that surrounds Daniel. Col Thompson is now the leader of Strike Team Alpha, the governments parahuman strike force.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
The idea was to put him into the cell of a para-resistant prison, if it can be done legally.  (Mits has been working hard toward getting permanent legal authority as an Interpol officer since she returned to Earth, but for now has probably gone through the process of getting temporarily deputized for the alien invasion crisis, with no small amount of sitting through "you are not to talk of what you saw aboard the alien ship" lectures from those that do such deputizing.  Which may or may not include authority to arrest suspects.)

A) Guy's probably a mad scientist and has super-tech gadgets for escaping normal prison in his pocket or implanted under his skin.

B) The guy that wants him dead is super-powered, so even if Reeve is somehow completely innocent, it would be in his own best interest to be in a place that could resist a radioactive man attack while he waits out the fallout.

But if it's illegal to save Reeve's life in such a manner, he'll be dropped off in the back alley of that same building.  Mits may be chaotic aligned, but she does not want to be the one the world blames for the Civil Wars style government crackdown on heroes simply because she wanted to rescue a mad scientist in an effective way.  (Nor does she want to have to waste time and money on defending her actions in court.)

Thanks for the warnings, Hotwire. :)

Truth & Justice, I'm so excited about Ant getting the chance to meet the mysterious cloaked dude! :D

And the new power classes is something I've always been a fan of. You did mention someone can be more than one class at a time. For example, Ant would be Thinker Class, but is also Defender Class since that is what her inventions are built towards. When this happens, do they simply classify them as both, or do they say stuff like "She's a Thinker Defender" or something?

Oh! And while I'm on the topic, can we get a list of your NPCs categorized under the power classes? That would be helpful.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
The using objects for defense would be more a personal choice than a function of the powers, the type would be the specific abilities. So Antoinette would be a Thinker Class Inventor Type. Mittens would be Mobility Class Teleporter Type.

Rebound (one of the New Age Defenders) has a force field that absorbs and redirects kinetic energy, allowing him to bounce. So he'd be a Mobility/Defender class.

  Well, first there is the true fact that "Eh, any science jargon beats no science jargon" in a world full of super powers.  Both for asspull comic book logic, and also the fact a post-it note for "how much radiation is 'enough' radiation" at minimum is a good thing to have.  So that part is as much about encouraging them to just give it a shot.

  Second, Matt's not thinking just about Reeves on the subject of "I don't think I'm qualified for that and maybe nothing I do will help". Since my restraint as a player probably isn't helping his mindset on top of the whole Destiny headache for leaving John a cartoon skeleton.

  It's probably for the best Antoinette is the one stuck with the job of explaining the universe wants him to be a Skeleton.

Man, time sure does fly by.  I made my two for one comment "Backwards eldritch horror: Fixing your reality instead of eating it" and "Deliberately vague on purpose" PM in 2012.

"Wait, wait. Does this mean Traditional Elder things wanted something around that can allow a hobo to kill Cthulhu with a broken bottle, on purpose?"

Look, Matt. Ancient eternal beings get very, very bored. So that could literally be the case for all we the audience know.  You already keep a BMX bike on the moon so you're hardly one to talk.

As for the RP with Lifelight, not really sure.  He'd likely approach her as Daystar first, it would definitely take a little more guidance from Mittens a bit.  I forget, does Lifelight give out contact information in any way to her fellow heroes or was that just Mittens?  mind is fried and I barely remember last week IRL let alone in game.

XD  But that hardly factors into Mittens' math at all.  In her eyes we currently have: Iconic hero, Awesome Hero, Legendary hero, Creepy (yet secretly adorable) hero, Outta-this-world hero, Mystic, Sage, interesting new person, and kawaaaaii baby.  Oh yeah.  And herself.  That adds up to at least three times the fun times as if you subtract half the equation.  =n.n=

Re: OOC The Quarterly
quote:
There are also movies based on many different real life heroes. There are series' for The Legacy, The New Age Defenders, The Knighthood, and Strike Team Alpha. THe movies also make up details they do not know, for example in the Legacy movies Dragon Fist is asian, and his armor is formed from an amulet given to him by his grandfather. None of which is true, however Mirage is a rich socialite who was attacked by a gang of men when her powers activated, which is very close to the truth.


I'm almost afraid to think how my character might have been depicted in a film.

Seeing as Rodger's 'magic robot clown' status wasn't public knowledge, he would most likely be depicted as a kindly old gentleman who switched back and forth between giving sage advice and being comically worrisome.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Update notes

NPCs- Added Char sheet for excelsior Link back to this game

Timeline- Made appearance of New Age Defenders 2013, making most of them in their mid-late twenties now

Setting: Paths to Power- added Unique and Alien origins, updated Supersoldier

Unique: Sometimes unique circumstances that do not fall into other categories can result in powers, such as Excelsior being chosen and empowered by the earth, or Machinesmith being changed by the Atlantean artifact. These are taken on a case by case basis and are subject to refusal if the GMs feel they do not fit.

Aliens: Aliens are possible PCs at this point but again on a case by case basis as they are still rare on earth. There is an outer space storyline going on currently so please get an update from GMs before you create character. You may use one of our canon races or make up your own.

The most notable success of creating super-soldiers are Mr. Hurt and his son The Hunter. Mr. Hurt does not posses the parahuman gene, and Don does so recessively, but both posses enhanced abilities beyond what a normal human is capable of.


Setting:Criminal organizations, added several new organizations, added info for others.

The Sharks: Biker gang, primarily arms dealers and hired muscle.

The Fallen Angels: Another biker gang, arms dealers and underground fight rings.

The Carbone Family: Formerly a 'sub-family' in service to the Bertellis Leo Carbone survived where Antonio and his son did not and managed to pull what was left of their organization together with his own to create a place for himself in Weston's underworld. Primary businesses are prostitution and illegal gambling.

The Order of Midnight: A doomsday cult under control of the charismatic Lord of Night. Has a mix of normal humans acting as cannon fodder, and a collection of parahumans and magic users.




Let me know if anyone has any questions, comments, concerns, or ideas concerning the setting.

Mav misses playing in a bouncy castle. He's going to the Children's Festival.
...he also expects such a place to be a target for the escaped criminals, so he's there for another reason. ;)

When I was 14, I was frustrated I had gotten too big for bouncy castles. Mav doesn't have that problem. XD

Antoinette is an unusual character of mine. She knows things that I don't. XD

Great example is when I RP'd her in D&D, the GM had some goblins speak gibberish and Antoinette translated it. GM was like "...how did you know?" I'm like "It's Antoinette." XD

I apologize. I probably should have listed that in her powers that she just... knows things mysteriously sometimes.

Actually, I don't consider any of you, our players, to be 'strangers'.  You're all our friends, and it does help to know you too are unhappy with the people who did it.  Justice and I have had the universe of Weston running for a while, like 9+ years, and most of you have been with us for a goodly chunk of that time.  I am just glad I could get the locks changed, since one item stolen was a house key.  I really, really, REALLY didn't want to have to defend my kids by killing someone who came back to hurt us because they already took basically everything of material value we owned.  They only missed a couple things that were eithe bulky, or they didn't understand what they were looking at.

Currently, both my characters (Maverick and Antoinette) are at the Children's Festival. Mav's there because he's a kid. And he's chillin' with Donny Derring Jr. Grandpa Derring also called dibs on Mav when he has a moment (which will likely be between the Festival and whatever night over he has at the Derrings')

Ant's there with Seraph, having done a mostly off-panel hand-waved pamphlet hand-out for local orphanage money raising thing, while giving small demonstrations of her and Seraph's abilities. But since that's done, now they just chillin' at the food area.

We only have a small handful of counties under a 'Stay at home' order but it's a joke as there are about 12 ways you can justify being out and about.  I work for a company that makes water pumps for home protection and farming / irrigation so our owners are saying we're "essential" for now which is fine by me.

Iím in Ohio too. Yet I work in an essential business so I have to go to work. The interesting thing is, at the same time the safest, my parents only shop at my store when Iím at work (but not during the hours I work because we still get emptied out by the time Iím on the clock. They have to shop earlier in the day like at the storeís first opening to get what they need.)

Didn't wunna post before Dane or Andy had a chance to chime in.  It's considered rude to post out of turn in many a place I've been.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Storm is rolling in just now, had issues with power in my room last few weeks and didn't trust trying to type something out, either.  Will get a post after the skies clear or tomorrow.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
Sorry for the wait, folks.  Was set to get some posts out last Sunday but RPoL being down didn't let me.  Then when I was set to post again, I came down with pneumonia and was tested for Covid.  Results came back negative but still recovering from pneumonia and work is in OT right now.  Will try to get some posts out this week.

Don't blame yourself for taking care of yourself, and hopefully you never have to deal with anyone who takes issue with it.

I'm just happy to hear you're OK!

Still alive.  Working overtime as well.  Haven't had a real break, have had 0 shutdowns during this whole Covid thing and for some godforsaken reason, they seem to think there's going to be a million (literally) orders for dryers any time now.  Justice and I are both working the same place and the same hours now.

I'm clinging to life and sanity by my fingernails but I'm still here. Missing the game but this is a barmy time for everyone, it seems. I do hope all of us are doing well and, as stated, would like to hear from you all!

Re: OOC The Quarterly
No problem at all, I think we're all in that 'bleh' funk.  I'll get posts out again tomorrow after I get home from gym.

Today ... it's amazing how one bad hour at work can ruin an otherwise decent day.

Re: OOC The Quarterly
2020 has been very much "Weary Sigh, the year" for most people, so it is perfectly understandable.
