Character Creation Thread - OakMaster: Resonance
The Watcher:
OK, having added some character creation notes (and learning y'all are so bright you didn't really need them in the first place... ;-) ), y'all can go ahead and start a character creation thread for your character(s).

You might copy and past what you have already written into the thread.  Don't worry about formal character creation just yet.  You can just write in plain text and you don't need more than a paragraph at present.

That said, if you do know the Mask rules, you can formally stat them.  I should have formal character sheets up in a day or two.

Character Creation Thread - OakMaster :)

Anything that you want The Watcher to know about your character, please copy it over to your character creation thread, rather than relying upon him to track down info in any other public or private thread.  He has taken on a populous game, so the easier we can make it for him, the sooner we can get up and running.  Many thanks. :)

OakMaster:
I envision my character as a devout and dedicated empathic healer who is drawn to where there is need for such abilities.

That could mean MSH-Troubleseeker-Style being teleported to the scene, or that could mean some type of spidey-sense vision ("Uh oh...  The Clueless Klutz just fell off the bridge!  I've got to get over there right away!").

At this point I am leaning toward a thirteen-year-old Chinese female.

Would game balance allow for any other Empath-related powers (empathy, telepathy, precognition, postcognition, etc.)?  Only our Faithful GM knows for sure... :)

The Watcher:
Meta:  You 'know' that you are in a comic book (or RPoL game) and sometimes directly address the audience.  Less comically and annoying, you know the secrets of the superhero world you find yourself in better than anyone else.  This is the Deadpool or Gwenpool option and can probably be tolerable for just a few PC heroes.  Otherwise, fine as written.

Bingo.  That is just the droid that I am looking for.

My character's empathic resonance is such that her super-perception and super-intuition can glimpse beyond the fourth wall.

Perfect.  Sign me up for Meta.  :)

Real Name: Xīn Xi Zhn (心谐振) (Surname is Xīn, given name is Xi Zhn)
Hero Name: Resonance
Playbook: Meta

Proposed powers are all manifestations of Empathic ability:
Empathic Healing (with relatively quick self-healing to recover from acquired wounds)
Empathic Resonance (send and receive thoughts, emotions, sleep, ...)
Empathic Perception (precognition, postcognition, intuition, clairvoyance, meta-perception)
Empathic Teleportation (when there is need, she is transported to where she is needed)

Proposed drawbacks are all manifestations of Empathic ability:
Empathic Healing (transfers wounds to herself, compelled to do so despite any risks to herself)
Empathic Resonance (difficult to tune out thoughts and emotions of others, feels pain of others, takes damage when inflicting damage on others)
Empathic Perception (susceptible to visions, etc., occurs whether or not the timing is inconvenient or dangerous)
Empathic Teleportation (GM-controlled, occurs whether or not the timing is inconvenient or dangerous, needs to get back home somehow after saving the day...)

Your feedback is welcome.  :)

The Watcher:
For this first IC thread I ask that instead of posting In-Character, you post a one-to-three sentence blurb/high concept/elevator pitch of your character.

Resonance:
Empath.  Healer.  Seer.  She feels your pain, so you don't have to.  She knows your need, across time and space.  She reaches toward even you, Gentle Reader, even now, through the computer screen...

So what's she like? :D

How does the Meta playbook work? I've never seen it.

Well, it's only three bucks. Maybe I should pick it up as an alternate playbook for Indigo.

Oops, I missed your first query.  She is very... empathetic.  ;)
