I had dozens since before this game was begun. :-)  You just can't help but come up with ideas during the dull parts of the day.

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
I have started a new poll in the Polls and Debates thread.

I want to know if a structured and defined 'rewards for extra credit' system works for this game.

It is a slight effort to run such a program but the rewards in terms of creativity and enthusiasm could be well worth it.  I would say that the right answer depends on the views of the players in a particular game.

This poll is optional and there is no reward beyond the satisfaction of being counted.  But I would love to know what you think. :-)

Hm. Would Otto recognize Gwen in her disguise, even as rudimentary as it is?

Maybe I need a 'Hello my name is Ghost-Spider' nametag.

Your call either way.

Steel Ninja: How big is Grey, anyway? Power suit sized? Power Loader size? Are we talking Hulkbuster or Iron Man, here?

I have begun composing the IC reply to y'all's contributions to IC Thread #1.  I hope to post it Sunday.

I'm otherwise trying to catch up and expand the game...

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
I know I am still slowly getting to questions but there is one I wanted to answer.

This game is set in the Eternal Present, as is most of Marvel Continuity.   That is, Peter Parker is still a young Spider-Man even though the character debuted in the Sixties.

I feel I have to do this as most of Marvel continuity does.  Otherwise, we have to consider the effects of aging and replacement for practically every Marvel character (and they number in the thousands).

Actually, to be fair, Marvel characters do 'age' and progress but they do so very, very slowly.  The rate of time is about one-year passes for characters in Earth-682 for every four or five in the real world.

I will tend to use relative times when referencing events.  So, this character got their powers 'two years ago' instead of 2019.

Let me know what you think.

Still trying to catch up but the game has now taken a great leap forward.

Presenting our new Wiki, editable by you!

It is very small now but we will make it grow...

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
There's a quick question I could use the answer to now in Polls and Debates.

Do you want your team to be the first or second class at this new and barely tested school?

Quick question when we start talking to the recruiters at the tables do we just write what happens or will we be interacting with you as gm?

Just wondered how to formulate my next post

And right you are! :D

BTW, I plan on finishing my IC post with having my character bump into a certain "living lawn ornament". (Her words, not mine ... ;) )

Ah, apparently, I misunderstood what you meant by "here are some questions you can answer in your profile"...  I put the info I'm comfortable providing in my character description.

quote:
Nickname: jait.  But I prefer to go by my character name.
Gender/pronoun:  I am male.  I don't feel that my gender is relevant to anything.  I don't care if you refer to me as he, she, they or it.  Basaq is female.
Nationality/Location: Canadian.
Online Time: GMT-7,  As I'm unemployed at the moment, I have no set schedule.

Seconded. I had assumed it was the latter.

Also, should we move on to the booths before the big IC post, or is that not critical yet?

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
I've posted the next IC reply.  Unfortunately, because I am pressed for time, it is a wide sledge rather than a delicate scalpel.  You can go ahead and initiate positive interaction with known Marvel characters for now.

I may not be able to post much tomorrow and tonight.  I appreciate y'all's sorely-tested patience.  I know I am behind on replies.  I hope to make this up mid-week. :-)

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
Hmm... Perhaps the X-Men have a larger booth due to all the prospective mutant recruits? From what I understand Jubilee is helping out there.

And I suppose there is still a bit of a window for interactions among ourselves for now.

For Ricochet it was a crucial moment, but for V ... it was Tuesday.

But seriously, V would gladly serve as your rival.

Amusingly, V seems rather like Jubilee's rival from Generation X Monet St. Croix.
