They're something we make ourselves. They are three short phrases that help define your character. If you've ever played FATE or Marvel Heroic they're basically the same thing; some games call them Distinctions, others Aspects. Here they're Qualities.

OK got my character from our gm.... I like him but he will be more of a protector / defender than a front line fighter.... He has flight, force field (usable on others) reflection and an unpredictable telekinesis

Qualities example: I've chosen
  1. The Wonderful Water Woman!
  2. Slippery when wet.
  3. Fish out of water.

(The last because she's British but studying in the US.)

I was thinking

1) hard boiled cop
2) upholds the law
3) protect the weak

But happy for anyone to chip in with ideas

A good quality has positive and negative casts to it, as that makes earning determination points during play easier. I personally tend to lean a little on the negative side but I think that's just my nature.

Gold Shield seems to have more or less the same powers as Raven. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

Where do we overlap? if I know that I can have a chat with the gm about making them less alike as they created my character for me :)

I've PM'd the GM to see about reworking some of my powers so they aren't the same as yours..his main power is his force field as that doesn't match with yours I can keep my concept and cool name :)

To be fair, Raven's power probably works very differently in actual play.

In reply to Raven (msg # 44):

you decide, if you'd rather they don't overlap this much I can tweak mine to be different....

My force field as I said is his primary power.

His reflection is part of his force field and it gives him that little bit of an indirect attack as he doesn't have a direct one.

His telekinesis is unpredictable so doesn't always work and again is more to do with how he manipulates his force field

And his flight is a side effect of him pushing down on the ground with his force field to lift him into the air.

If these descriptions are different enough from how you see yours I'd be happy to keep my character as is  but as I said if you feel there might be problems with them being too alike I can alter mine slightly :)

My approach to potential problems is generally to take note of them and keep an eye on them but wait to see if the potential manifests during play before I start trying to correct things. It's hard to do that here though because Gold Shield suddenly manifesting different powers could be a bit of a continuity snarl, not to mention unfair to you if you enjoy your powers. I'm still reluctant to risk over-correcting, though.

I'll leave it up to you.

Let's leave it and see how it goes shield could always fall into a void, covered in radioactive goo or die and come back with altered powers that the nature of comic book powers :)

Everyone should be able to see your origins thread. If you cannot, please let me know. If you can, go ahead and post.

Force Field and Telekinesis seems to be a common theme.

Do we all have both of those at power level 6 as well?  o.O

Raven, very cool!

I'm still working on mine, but I think you gave me an idea, thanks for the inspiration..all I can do is be wrong and have to re-do it, right? :)

Thank you! It took me a while to find spare writing energy with all the other stuff I've had to do this week, and the abrupt paradigm shift I had to put Raven through when I realized we wouldn't be starting with existing hero experience under our belt. I hope we get a good time skip after our first chapter, otherwise I'm gonna have to re-conceptualize a bit! Which is fine with me, but it is more work to do.

Anyone else starting to feel like this game is a stillbrith? GM stated a preference for daily posts, but hasn't even checked in over the last six days. I admit I was a little slow to get my first post out, but I should be sharing my thread with Princess and Wildcard but I haven't seen any signs of IC activity from them either.

that's a failing on my part, was trying to get too many specific questions asked instead of just writing a post..

that's my bad and I apologize..

There's nothing wrong with that! It's just impossible to do when the GM has ghosted on us.

Had that exact same thought several days ago.
