Age of Heroes (looking for a replacement PC)

Game Description:

I am looking for one more player who is willing to join this Mutants and Mastermind e3 game already in progress. There are numerous options when joining the game but anyone willing to play characters created by other players who have dropped out or one of the undefined NPCs (with respect to powers) will have an advantage. Note that the Origin event has already occurred but the characters available have not yet been very clearly defined in terms of powers and such.
Here is the premise:

A large number of friends were on vacation together with their families near the Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado. On their way home to the East coast they separated from their families for an ATV excursion and encountered something that changed their lives, and the world, forever.

Suddenly they were endowed with super powers previously relegated to the fictional realms of comic books. What they found also has global and political implications beyond the matter of granting the PC’s and a few others their powers.

At the beginning of the game there will be others besides these five that will gain powers in this world, set in current-day America. They will face government agencies (foreign and domestic) trying to control them, super villains trying to control the world, a public afraid they are too powerful to be free in society, and possibly even the adoration of public supporters…all while discovering how to use their powers without hurting innocent civilians.

Players start at PL10 with 160 points to use for character creation.
In addition to those 160 PPs, all characters begin with the following 15 more points of advantages and powers that everyone affected by the event possesses and all have in common. More points can be spent above these to improve them further.



In addition, the event will change the characters even further in terms of morality. There will be a GM-imposed complication in this regard after the event occurs.



Your character will be a hero and will act accordingly when the situations present themselves. This motivation complication will likely change as the game progresses.

The event creates heroes as well as villains. But we will see how things turn out in the end.

Based on past experience for this scenario, there will probably be approximately a 80-20 mix of role-play to combat and much of this depends on the players.



Here is the full-powered PC whose player has dropped: He is a Speedster. Super speed is the only power he has shown so far in the game. The game is very new so nearly every aspect of the character can be altered to suit the new player’s ideas and concepts for the character.




There are also two Top Tier NPCs available that can turn into PCs

Troy Danning, he is a cousin of one of the PCs, Naomi Kennedy. He has revealed some acrobatics, increased ability scores, and some minor jumping powers. Other than that he is pretty much a clean slate to work with to start your character.

Terrence Shaw, he is a relative of another NPC, Corey Brighton. Corey is not available. Terrence teleported out of the opening scenario and that is his only revealed power. So he is also pretty much open to your interpretation.



Commitment: 3-4 posts per week preferred, more if possible.

Feel free to contact me with any questions but I prefer to have all questions on the board for everyone's benefit.

SUBMISSION FORMAT

Include the following:
Name, Age and Gender: Aged between 22-26, preferably at the upper end.









List 3 positive qualities and 3 flaws. -

Ruleset[/B] - Mutants & Masterminds 3rd Edition. (A.k.a. DC Adventures.) http://www.d20herosrd.com/


Miscellaneous Character Creation information:



Please keep concepts simple (you could be creative with the execution) and close to the Archetypes found in the material. Don't neglect Defenses.





Thanks for your consideration. Please PM me if you are interested and we can open a discussion from there.

While I probably won't apply for this slot, I wanted to compliment you on an impressively formatted and thorough application / recruiting layout. I always feel that it bodes well for a game when the GM is this thorough and clear in the ad.

This could be fun. I'd be tempted to try playing Erik, but his background seems so depressing. I have a teleporter character from another game I could rewrite for this (extensively), though I could probably just adapt that character into Terrance.

I would be willing to play the speedster but I am already in the other Age of Heroes game so not sure if you would have a problem with that.

Hmmmm....
'My super power isn't super speed, it's controling the amount of friction and air resistance that myself, and other people and objects are effected by.'

The villian: 'What's the difference?'

'The difference, is that I'm a scientist, not some idiot wearing a pair of red tights.'

I usually don't play male characters, but I could make an exception... <.<'

Thank you for the compliment. I really appreciate it.

Erik is an... odd build mechanically. It appears that his primary... well... only attack is his unarmed combat... with enhanced physical stats from the "accident". Thus you have a character that has a primarily tech/science background that trains in completely physical skills... it just feels odd, lol. Even with his enhanced strength I would have thought he would have been more "techie" about the whole thing. He's confused about his sexuality which on top of some of his other conflicts makes him a "hard sell" as a take-over character for most, lol. Not that he's a bad character in any way, simply one that the player made to play for themselves which might not fit well with another player.

@Groqx Which of the other applicants were accepted?

You could alter the background pretty much any way you want. Except George Cooper, his father, has already been introduced in the game...well, he was shot and survived, though nothing is really known about him yet. Terrence Shaw might be a better choice for you. I've written next to nothing about him yet.

I would not have a problem with it, but you may get bored. I write extensively for that game and will be including a whole lot of it in this one.
