Re: Character Dashboard (List)
OK, the first draft of this got lost somehow.  Here are the team assignments.  I like the suggested team arrangements.  But in the end, I think I had best show impartiality by using an algorithm.  Players can swap teams afterwards as they wish,

There are three playbooks that have more than one incarnation among the characters; the Brain with three examples, the Nova and the Transformed with two examples each.  I don't want them duplicated so that means three teams.  I will then 'deal' the characters between teams like playing cards.

Here we go...

TEAMA2B2C2D1 (NPC TEAM)
SUPER NAMETBATBATBAthe Wonders

 Arc the NovaShe-Hulk the NovaCitizen V the UndefinedTBA
 Leviathan the TransformedGatewayStone Cold the TransformedTBA
 Ghost-Spider the LegacyJubilee the BeaconMax the DelinquentTBA
 Midnight the ProtégéResonance the MetaRicochet the BullTBA
 Skorpio the SoldierUnfilledUnfilledTBA

Notes:  The more common Brains were dealt first in alphabetical order, then the alphabetized Novas and the Transformed in the same way.  I skipped a space, moving Stone Cold into the next team.  It is a long explanation but it ultimately makes for the best mix of different playbooks per team.  There is a fairly even gender mix on each team.  Team A2 (Clubs Symbol) has six members instead of five, but the teams are otherwise equal in size.

After that, the single playbooks were essentially dealt alphabetically.  Citizen V will keep her place even when her playbook is decided.  If her new playbook is a duplicated one, the team listings will still stand.  Long story:  That is pretty much how I would have to handle a suddenly duplicated playbook anyway.

Team D1 (Diamond Symbol, the Wonders) is the new NPC junior team on campus.  The only announced member so far is Bluebird (Sally Arvill).

If you want to change your team assignment, fine, you may swap with any other willing player.  The only requirement is that there are no duplicated playbooks on a team in the end.

Put your transfer requests below.

Hmm, I'm not sure what to say other than that I am very frustrated. Masks is supposed to be a collaborative game, and when many of us expressed a desire to form our own teams based on interactions and backgrounds we had been working, you essentially just said, "nope, we're doing it my way."

I'm not sure I understand the need for "impartiality by using an algorithm" when we had already established the three teams when you look at the post above. And as far as I know, no one had mentioned feeling left out, ignored, etc.

For example, the above doesn't take into account the fact that Max and Counterforce have literally only interacted with each other and wanted to be in a team together, that Ricochet wanted to be in a team with Counterforce and Jubilee, or that Octopus and Ghost-Spider had already been working background ties.

Agreed. I would prefer it if we went with the team arrangements we proposed earlier. I don't mind random generators myself from time to time, but I don't think that was needed here. As far as team compositions and character relationships go, I think it's better to build on what has already emerged organically from our IC and OOC interactions. There is already a creative spark there, why waste it?

Of course, we can all just swap towards our preferences, but personally I'd prefer to simply keep building on what we had already started to work out regarding teams - unless there was some problem with it?

Well if you just swap Octo and Counterforce, then move Max into the Unfilled spot you have the team composition you are proposing along with keeping the no duplicate rule intact.

Could also be interesting to bring that into play. Maybe them switching around or pulling antics in character to make the change happen. Like highschool kids trying to push to get into the class with their friends.

I'm gonna agree with Max here - my team has 1 person that has never posted IC, 1 person who probably isn't in the game anymore, and 1 that hasn't posted IC in two weeks.  That leaves me, Counterforce, and Leviathan as active members on it and I've never interacted with them at all.  (or any of the others)  We got conflicting info from GMs as to what team composition would involve.

I'm not sure why we had an IC thread for the last month if we weren't trying to make connections with other PCs?  The stated purpose of finding a sponsor also didn't matter, and we only had the option of interacting with each other - the GM posts didn't directly address ANY npcs.  I get that there's a lot of us but there's 3 GMs and the story so far could be written for ANY mix of characters.

I don't know what's next but can we get some separate threads for teams?  They can be in addition to whatever else you have planned.  IC thread 2 appears to be for interactions with a single student NPC and I can't imagine setting 15 of us to interact with her in a single thread is going to go well.
