We aren't all going to be thrown together as a team in game? I didn't realize this was going to be solo-focused in the first place, but then I suppose I haven't seen anything to the contrary.

My suggestion is that you guys join forces. :)

In fact, there's a P.I. side to the team that would alone justify the presence of an autonomous agency. Beyond that, the presence of tech-inclined characters is also an interesting center for gameplay - a singer with a chrome arm, that's a sight to behold!

One quick note, by the way: since City Nouveau is indep, there's a LOT of heat to bring it back to the US - by force if necessary. It NEEDS meta-humans to protect itself and stay indep. That's a possible premise.

On the other hand, the advent of foreigners might hide spies. What sort of politics would sprawl from it? Investigators would be needed!

Also, the presence of an atlantean is pivotal to enhance diplomatic stances...

Anyone moving around the bohemian scene - artists, for example - would be quite important as well, since most of the tension's bound to happen within the shadows of the city...

Just to check, are we going to be thrown together by circumstance early on, or are we expected to make up our own investigative (or whatever) agency ahead of time and start out knowing each other? I like getting to know people IC, so I might play my PC joining in late or something if we do the second one.

I could see a hybrid working out, maybe, like if one of our PIs held a recruitment drive to start a new team :)

That's up to you, guys! I can go both ways. I'd just bring you guys in within the same prologue threads (even if you hadn't known each other first) since we have a nice amount of players.

Whew, that blew up fast, I was contemplating a Gadgeteer with aspects of battlesuit...but a Gorilla Man Gadgeter might be amusing.

Do you have prebuilt templates for the species or are they in a book somewhere? I only have the core book.....

Could be...a drummer gorilla who fixes the bionic arm when it's annoying :D Or upgrades it ;)

You may start your agency if you have the funds. ;)

Alchemy's allowed as long as it's based in science. We're fully sci-fi commited. :)

I was thinking that or an upright bass player or a baritone crooner in a suit and fedora.

I'm thinking we also could use a skinny elf or maybe atlantean piano player to round out our image

I was thinking of going with an amnesiac shapeshifter (defaults to the appearance of a Human).

So, if I'm reading The Cast descriptions and OOC chat correctly, what we are looking at so far is:

quote:
AHAB            - Former child's doll turned monster hunter.
Buck.Davidson   - ???
Detective Flea  - Ultra-dense miniature private eye.
Dor'aan Miilou  - Psychic half Atlantean/half Argent with access to tech.
N4t3            - Indestructible Cyborg that can summon various weapons.
OakMaster       - ???
RandomKitty     - Tech-savvy telekinetic unconventional problem solver.
sbodmann        - Lounge singer with a chrome bionic arm and a hypnotic voice.
Silent Wayfarer - Amnesiac shapeshifter.
Stormshadow     - Ex-war pilot turned P.I. with a few electricity powers.
Tarrakhash      - A drummer Gorilla Man Gadgeter (also maybe battle-suit?).


Yes?

Lol, so I'm going to go baritone crooner in suit with a fedora because a monkey in a suit is just amusing. Likely going to go with a 'dire ape' so a big gorilla with four arms! Maybe I should play the double sax?

Yep, that's right for me Stormshadow :)

I'm not sure what you're asking, like, in the Atlantis Noire setting? It would probably depend on what a character's doing and who's paying them for it.

My concept is that an Argent scientist decided to construct the perfect being from the genetics up; strong physically, perfect physiology, telepathic demigog, and asthetically pristine.  I play the original draft, where he forgot to carry the cytosine and wound up with what he views as an unsightly, abstract failure.

Basic powers are telekinesis or telekinesis-based.
