So has Captain Justice after absorbing the exploding Neutron Bomb in his hands effectively "Ascended" to become the World 's First MEGAHERO as his tag suggests ~ Cosmic Defender NPC?

So I see from your profile your going with 'The Monster'... origin.  Are we talking a Super-Genius Turned himself into a Monster, like the Bruce Banner ~ Smart Hulk?  That would be Soooo-COOL!

Re: OOC 4

8D Really looking forward to getting involved.

That said,

I'll be in my car pretty much all day for the next two days. I'll try to keep up during potty breaks and maybe make an emergency post or two at night but for the most part I will be out of contact until Wednesday (late Tuesday night at the earliest).

I've trimmed the cast list (eliminating idle players). If something is missing that you need, let me know.

Re: OOC 4

I have returned! Completed the Mckay 50th Anniversary Road Trip and got $830 worth of credit at their stores!

I'll get the last details done today and then where should I go?

I feel like my characters skill set is more appropriate for LESP (He's a heck of an investigator).

Re: OOC 4

'Shrug' Justicar has never even considered the possibility of becomming a member of the CRUSADERS... all his efforts have been focused upon investing in the SENTINELS to give them the support and technical acumen to step up to the plate and take over the role of the World Class Superhero Team; eventually in the scope of the CRUSADERS from a concerted effort by him and his teammates boulstered by his technical assitance and upgrades.

He figured the retired CRUSADERS were done being an actual team and the SENTINELS would as needs be replace them.

Re: OOC 4

Ok, here's a quick take.
The Crusader of Center City would be akin to the Great Lakes Avengers. LESP would be akin to what was on the Watchmen tv series. The Sentinels are what many members of LESP are calling themselves, you never know when they'll tire of the constraints of real police work and break from the force.

Re: OOC 4

I'm going to HistoriCon this week. I'll be in the car all day tomorrow.

I am taking my laptop with me so there should be no interruption in my RPOL participation other than during the drive up (and then back on Sunday).

Re: OOC 4

Hello everyone! I haven't finished my concept yet, me and SSOGM are still discussing it since I'm new but it seems like the concept that is in the lead so far is the Stage Magician. I just wanted to ask if you had any tips, tricks or ideas for some fresh meat who isn't super knowledgeable about Palladium books. I have access to Heroues Unlimited 2e and all the Powers Unlimited.

For transparency, the other options for Origin I was considering was Alien, Mystically Bestowed, Physical Training or Ancient Master. Hardware and Bionics sounded interesting but feel too difficult for a new person :D

In reply to Newby (msg # 266):

First of all Welcome Newby and don't be too intimidated we ALL were newbys to this system at one point or another and ... let's just say Palladium can have a rather complex character gen system... we ALL Get that!

Well Stage Magician I've rarely seen done... but what really matters is do you have a clear image of what your 'Stage' Magician is all about? Why do they do their trick and more importantly why do they feel their talents would be good at fighting crime?  What is their bent are they like a "The Shadow' stalking gumshoe detective or crimefighter or more of a trickster fighter like 'The Phantom'?

I'd suggest comming up with a 'theme' for their trickery... like 'El Zorro' "The Fox" and build their tricks around a 'Theme'... like say "Darkman" or "Rorschach"... or some other 'Man-of-Mystery'.. yes even 'Austin Powers' cheesy as he is is a "Theme"... and then run with that meme designing all his tricks around that theme.  Keep in mind you'll want some kind of Offensive trick, Defensive trick, possibly a movement gadget or super vehicle... and then maybe two or so battlefield controlling gimmicks... smoke cloud/tear gas or ball-bearings on the floor something to change the battlefield.  Then maybe like two utilitarian 'tricks' like IR goggle or handheld sonar to find the empty spaces behind walls for detecting secret passages or somesuch.... but ALL bented toward a particular meme/theme 'motif'.

Personally, I've pondered at Stage Magician and wondered if at some point while playing one would I begin to envy 'Real' spellcasters who wield REAL magic at some point?

The Stage magician is sort of like a soft-touch Batman..with a budget for gimmick and trick gear that all supports the narrative of their particular 'sleuth' theme.  Which is actually a very similar origin as well the "Super Sleuth" though more bented toward detective work.

Perhaps you might also look into the "Mystic Study" Origin... they burn PPE as opposed to a psions ISP... still same thing with spells instead of psi powers.  Though "Mystically Bestowed Power" Origin is, in my opinion, simpler and less demanding of resource management like PPE or ISP.

Shoot, I completely missed the part where they stopped breathing. Alright, my fault, I'll roll with it.
