Please tell us if we're missing your app or if the one linked isn't the correct/last updated version. Also, if you edit the app itself (as opposed to just the sheet), please inform us so we can check it again.
I'd also appreciate if you keep your app in the same post. Makes it easier to locate later.

Game Description:

The City on WaterAt the point where three rivers meet and form a lake, there is a city which has seen better days. A bustling hub of commerce thanks to its fortunate location, it once had everything it needed to become one of the greatest cities in the world...but lost it at some point, replaced by something far more cynical, tired, and willing to turn an eye on what was wrong and needed to be righted. A grey funk descended over it as the men in power traded in their zeal and dedication to their duties for the cold comfort of cash, and those in charge of enforcing the law decided that helping break it was far more profitable. The men and women who were far too worried about surviving from one day to the next did not have time for such sordidness and violence, but even they were subtly affected by the decadence that settled into the area. Over time, the place they called their home sunk into darkness, a veil of apathy so thick it could almost be touched on a bad day. The city lost its name and with it its identity, and today no one remembers its former glories. Nothing has changed in years, and if people remain set on their current course, nothing ever will.

But the world has changed. It has seen times of darkness and times of joy, and it has never stood still. And soon, some of that sense of purpose will seep into this forsakened city once more. Soon, the time will come for the tides to turn...


Hello everyone, and welcome to the dark little underworld of the City on Water. Me and Illien, the instigator of this game, are looking for 4 or 5 players who wish to partake in a DC Adventures game, using the Third Edition Mutants and Masterminds rules. Below are some details about the game for those who wish to try their hand at bringing some hope to a town that has lost its aim.













That's all. The turning of the tides is in your hands now. Will the City on Water disappear into the mists of history permanently? Or will it finally become the grand place it should always have been?

Just to let you guys know, I am still working on my character. No guarantees about when he'll be finished, though, so don't end up waiting on me or anything if everyone's raring to go and I'm not done.

Mostly because there's actually no "aura" effect listed in the book that I can find. I guess it would've made more sense for me to either say Area (Burst) always centered on the Avatar or see if Area (Aura) was okay to use and what the radius would be.

[ Responses ]
- Sleep: Perception with concentration is fine.
- Illusion: I took precise to illustrate how "detailed" my illusions could be. If I don't need to be diligent, I'll erase it.
- Toughness: I'm confused. Is buying toughness directly a bad idea? I could buy protection instead, I guess?
- Sleight of Hand: *shrug* I thought acrobatics and quickness would cover getting out of things, quick fingers and all.


[ Changes ]
- Hypnotist's Watch: Perception with concentration.
- Removed Quickness, Power Attack and Acrobatics skill, and precise from illusion.
- Traded 6 points of Toughness for 6 points of Smoke and Mirrors: Protection (sustained).
- Shuffled skill points around a little to give 9 points to Sleight of Hand (+12).

You can view the updated sheet on my application page. All good?

Sleight of hand: how is a character that's supposed to be good at it, haves a power named after it, and doesn't even have it trained?

Sorry about the wall of text, but you did say be a detailed as possible in the background area. When you get a chance any feedback that you could give me will help me sculpt it to this game. Do we have a name for this country so that I can proerly address in in the background.

Yeah, I kind of need to know if you don't want the "wall o' text". My background is turning out a little long as well. Again due to the app saying "detailed".
