@Jaeger, those ideas are fine, though honestly it's hard to suggest balances since we still don't know what system we're using and how these Oberwatch-based abilities will translate over, haha. For now it's fine to throw ability ideas/concepts around until then.

Indeed. I'm not strictly opposed to freeform, myself, but yeah - I'm pretty much down for whatever :)

Ugh. Fought so many demon dogs last night, still missing the one part I need to finish my high end armor ^^

The GM mentioned using Fate CORE earlier.

@Snowden Yeah, even if the abilities wouldn't translate well to the tabletop, it's fun to theorycraft.

Ahh, that's right. I've never heard of FATE until now, so it'll be an interesting and fun experience, haha.

Speaking of theorycrafting, my character concept is currently revolving around a heavily utility-based combat healer. Their playstyle is inspired by the Pathfinder-esque Summoner in that they'll have an "eidolon"--or drone--to assist them. I have some abilities in mind, but I haven't delved too far since it depends if I'm the only healer or not.

We may also be considering a few other systems other than Fate Core. I'm here to help GM if we decide to pick up Cortex Plus/Prime, and I think there was mention of Mutants and Masterminds. We'll get to figuring out system questions over the next few days/weeks. If anyone wants to know my thoughts, shoot me a PM.

All that being said, the character ideas sound amazing so far, and having a good idea of what sort of character you want to play will be really helpful for the more narrative-type systems.

Hey, all.

Thanks for your patience while we get this off the ground. I will probably be silent until this weekend, but will do my best to check in when I can before then.

In the meantime, why donít we go ahead and take a formal vote on which game system to use. Since you guys will be the ones playing, your choices will be the ones that count.

I'll need to learn relearn? fate Core (hope there's somes or to fonline reference), and MHM...  not the biggest fan of having to build things in that system. I actually kinda can't stand the process of doing that, just because it's so counterintuitive to me. Ideally I can get some help with M&M, but yeah. Don't know Cortex, myself. (or, is that the system that they used for Marvel heroic? I think so?)

 I'll work around things, but, yeah, heads up on the above.

If cortex is the MHR system, I did like that. M&M  I can play but won't like building, Freeform is fine by me...   others - as long as I can get instruction and aid, we'll see?

Marvel Heroic is indeed a version of Cortex Plus, and probably very close to the hack I'll create for this game, as MHR doesn't have anything resembling an "ultimate ability" mechanic. I'll make it my priority to make sure everyone's character gets accurately represented in a balanced, fair way.

I have not heard of any of these systems so I'm willing to give any of them a try!

I don't want to spend money on a new system and I noticed that Fate Core is free on Drivethrurpg, so that gets my vote.

I'm sure there are free resources for whatever system we end up with. Fate has several SRDs for free online, Cortex has a number of hacks around (including Marvel Heroic), though Exalted: Blood and Fire is probably close enough to get a sense of how the broader system works. I'm less familiar with M&M, but I think there was a free rulebook made available at one point, that may need looking into.

MnM, 3e at least, is an open SRD. As for the systems I'm good with, I'm good with any really. Name any system and I've probably at least looked at the book at some point. Still, for this game I would prefer something lite, which MnM is most definitely not.

Apologies for the longer-than-planned silence. Every time I log in, Iím called away. However, my goal is to be fully caught up on messages tonight, no matter how late I have to stay up.
