Hello all, and Happy Independence Day for those in the US (and Happy 'Good Riddance' Day to those in the UK).  I will now try to catch up to all that I have missed. :-)

Quick note on communicators, the standard communicators for the students (which include the now revealed Babelfishes but is not limited to them) will always be inferior to the tech unique to the tech-oriented playbooks.  That is, the day will be saved by a Brain's gizmo or an Outsiders' Kirby-tech rather than a mundane communicator (which just gets you into trouble ;-) ).

In other words, you will save the day (not the school's gear)! :-)

One suggestion: you could just have them be translators rather than communicators. After all, they're babel fish. That's kind of literally their job.


Long as the gadgets we get aren't replicas of stuff we already have, it should all be fine.

Glad to hear you're back! I was starting to worry. Please respond in our influence and relationships thread when you're ready. :)

Levi, you're back! Very happy to see you. n.n

Jubilee: I'm pretty excited to see Jubilee in action! She was always my favorite in the cartoon. :D

My apologies for not being very available this week, the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune and all of that IRL.  Let me try and make up for that with the rest of this week. :-)

Forgot to add, Leviathan, but it's also your turn in our team coming together thread. Just in case you didn't notice.

In reply to Ricochet (msg # 363):

I just hope I'll do the character justice.

Today I learned that the heads of Marvel don't use and also don't like the Marvel Earth number designations. I'm gonna make a note not to let them find out I've been using them.

Interesting Ricochet, I think they are a brilliant way to suggest the vastness of alternate realities.  So much so they cannot all be named.   Oh well, it should have no bearing on us here :-)

Jubilee, you've done the character very proud indeed and I can't wait to read more :-)

Strange, I could've sworn I saw the designations used in comics. Though I have seen much more of them in the wiki...

Starting to get ideas for further characters again, but I'll probably hold off on them for now. There are enough cats to herd at the moment.

Hi guys,

I'm sorry I have been so absent lately.  I should be more present from now on, my schedule has changed and I have fixed a stubborn laptop.  I hope to be able to essentially be able to now devote a dedicated hour a day to the game.

I have added to IC Thread #3 and I think you will like it.  I should be able to start catching up tomorrow. :-)

They show up all the time in a lot of books that aren't in the main timeline.

Would trying to stop the Phalanx with a force field at our current distance be Unleashing My Powers? Or just impossible?

Also, would my Energy mastery in Scientific insight apply if I were to Assess the Situation? Seeing as Jubilee's powers - and how the Phalanx react to them - might be the key to the whole thing.

2.  IIRC, the only thing from your gift bags that have not been examined is the ace playing cards (you each have one, your choice of suit).


Quite the contrary, Octopus has spent two posts examining the card.

Re: Discord renewal!
Argh!  I'm sorry I have been away so long especially as I last said I should have some more free time.  Real-life just got busy.  Rather than make more promises of free time, I will TRY and post somewhere between tonight and Tuesday.  If I can, it should be a fair amount. :-)

Re: Discord renewal!
Glad to hear from you anyway - I was starting to get a little worried.

---

Meanwhile, I have decided to start another Masks game, one set in an original universe of my own devising. With our GM's gracious permission, I would like to invite any of you who might be interested in such a thing to apply to it here: link to another game Bear in mind that I am only looking for a 4-6 member team at first, so while I plan to let everyone who is interested join in the discussion and make characters, I will only select a few people for the initial roster. However, I may well require replacements later or even decide to form another team, so there will be other opportunities to join too.

Re: Discord renewal!
I'm still excited for whatever comes next, boss!

I'd love to join your game, CF, especially after seeing the Game Info. You've got a rich and interesting world going. This time I think I'm gonna stand aside, though. My friends have been telling me I need to pump the brakes on adding more games to my plate. That's not to say I'll stay away forever. It's possible I'll send an application along at some point, when my excitement exceeds my self control. :P

Re: Discord renewal!
I'm definitely still excited for this game as well.

And I know that feeling well, Ricochet. With any luck, there should be plenty of opportunities to join in the future.
