Re: OOC - Atlantis Noire
Um...maybe.


For the former I was thinking variable for skills. Somewhat above average abilities. Some enhanced senses and a few feats.

I ran a paragon human in 3E once, it's a fun build :)

In reply to Nameless One (msg # 65):

I always wanted to roleplay a pacifist paragon, like the one in Sentinels of the Universe (that card game). A paragon that boosts people through sheer inspiration. Heh. He might even be a total fraud as a fighter in the end...

Or maybe play the paragon type from Bedlam.

Aaanyway, I'm unlocking sheets. If anyone remains locked, please, contact yours truly!
Also, feel free to ask for help. I've got the book opened right here as we speak. :)

Oh, a blue lantern type could be interesting.

Power Points
Abilities -- + Powers -- + Advantages -- + Skills -- (-- ranks) + Defenses -- = 180

Not really. I just ask that you keep attributes, skills, advantages and powers in discernible groups.

A blue lantern character would be great! Playing against someone's psychosis and investing someone with hope in a noir setting - priceless!

EDIT: abilities, sorry. Some D&D vices are hard to kill.

Re: OOC - Atlantis Noire
Last question, when you take Skill Mastery (Expertise) I'm presuming you need to take each expertise separately, seems logical :D

Re: OOC - Atlantis Noire
I've got my sheet posted, pending approval.

I'm small, but not really a dodge around and avoid attacks type. A straight up tank with high toughness and strength, able to leap around like a... (sigh) a flea. Rich, smart, with a tiny headquarters nobody but our other 6 inch heroine could enter (Until I equip it with Aetheric projectors that will shrink anyone entering...)

The Indefatigable is my ornithopter, able to flap through the skies or paddle through the water, with nice sensors and a couple other tricks.

Pretty much, yeah. If you want something to cover a larger base, take a look at jack-of-all-trades, an advantage that allows for a sort of umbrella-level for improv rolls (with tools, of course).

I'm checking Flea's sheet right now. :)

Re: OOC - Atlantis Noire
A character generator. Free version is great for working out points and trying out different variations.

Re: OOC - Atlantis Noire
Silverback, my forearmed Gorrilla man is done.....granted he needs to be approved but done.

Now working on Minion and HQ.

Sadly, as always, didn't get everything I wanted :D

Approved!

Guys, remember to choose motivations and a complication. And check the limit points for defensive traits at the character creation chapter.

Re: OOC - Atlantis Noire
So, wealth question that I always get a different answer for.

If you take wealth, even at 1 or 2 ranks, how does it impact mundane equipment?

I can buy a cellphone...or even make one with a high enough technology skill but RAW states unless I buy the equipment points I dont have it. Which let's you have a millionaire without a cellphone....

If you have resources above 2 or 3, you probably can finance a good deal of more limited creations - a cellphone's perfectly acceptable in this scenario. Comms aren't exactly uncommon - just more limited than our cellphones, given the restrictions.
