Full Description

BESM: Nexus Prime
Earth is always a focal point in all things, Finally, one man figured out why this is, and as such, attained the power of God, taking on the moniker, GameMaster.  What he has done since is simple.   Gathering together a group of teenagers from various walks of life, each with a unique quality of their own, he has Given each of them a portion of Nexus Energy, empowering them to travel to other worlds, Setting to right things that are wrong.
That's where all of you, the Players come in.  Each of you was a normal teenager, between 17 and 19, and now you have each been given extraordinary traits.   For example, you might now have a personal mecha (something no larger than 50 feet) and the knowledge to service and pilot it as an Ace, you might possess a magical weapon, or even cybernetic enhancement.  You could maste the elements, or know true magic.   The possibilities of the Nexus, and since its power flows through each of you, you the players, are endless.

Yeah it's a short premise write up.  This game is meant to be fun, and set like an anime, expect it to run like one.  We could end up in most any type of setting  Though I will say now, the first story Arc will be a mecha-centric setting.  Each Arc is going to be called a Level, and once you clear the challenges of the Level, some you may know beforehand, and some you may discover in the Level, you'll be returned to Earth to meet with GameMaster, and receive a boon.   Death is permanent in the Levels, so if you die you die, excepting a level where a means to revive someone actually exists.  Players should still look human, regardless of what form their extraordinary qualities take on.

Character Generation

powerflux is allowed, but you cannot modify the duration
Max total attack and Defense value to begin is 10 (factoring in all non-circumstantial bonuses)
If I feel a power is broken, I reserve the right to ask you to change it, or remove it as needed.  I will refund points if we discover it later in game.

--Decree of Fate--  I may have a character Fail a particular roll, or for some reason a power misfires at an inopportune moment, If I do this, please don't argue, I'll have story related reasons.  Each time I have it happen, whoever it happens to will receive a bonus cp award from 1-3 points depending on the severity of this Decree of Fate.

reduced to negative HP-  characters with regeneration regenerate all negative HP in one turn, regardless of how deep they go, so long as they do not die.

The use of a healing power on someone in negative heal will always bring them up to at least 0 hp, regardless of how deep into the negatives they are.
Tough and energy bonus give you 10 hp and10 ep respectively, and each rank costs 2 cp, you may only have up to 10 ranks of each at game start.

Regeneration can be used for EP or HP, but must be decided at Character creation, You may have both kinds.

This last rule is an important one, The game is supposed to be fun for everyone, don't be a dick.  if you've got a problem come to me, I'm a pretty accomodating GM.  We're all adults, and I'm being as upfront about what the game's gonna be like as I can.  If you need help, ask, I'll do what I can.  

  1. What's new in this game
  2. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Vesper blew another puff of smoke and glanced up at nothing again. "So...I'm not a general or anything, but it seems like if you've got their attention, they may not notice us us coming. Or they might not care. Once we're inside though...then what? How do we find the queen before they figure out what we're up to and..." She makes 'spider hands' and wriggles them around.
  3. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    "Well, that's thirty percent we don't have to deal with. So we can't go in through the air, we'll just have to walk in on the ground. It's a long hike, but it beats getting shot by lasers." Ryan answered and smiled. "You guys are going to launch another assault, even though the last one failed, right?" The Captain nodded. "We will launch another attack to try to clear the bugeyes, so they don't shoot down the bomb." "Well, that sounds good, we'll attack from the other direction and penetrate the hive." "But our weapons can barely do that, and we deployed cruise missiles by the score." "I have faith we can get inside, once we're in we go to the queen and kill her, then you should have an easy time killing the rest."
  4. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Half of an entire army of giant robots and their pilots dead, and a three day time limit. Madness. The green-haired shrine maiden rallied. "I'm sorry for your losses. Our patron wouldn't have sent us with impossible instructions, though," she responded earnestly, resisting the urge to glance away from their guest, burying the doubt that such may have been exactly the case, "Can you take us to see this other Captain? If we learn enough to sneak in within two days and kill this queen... The killing could..." She faltered, not certain exactly what would happen when they 'won' a level. "It wouldn't get worse. Give us a chance to try."
  5. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Vesper rubbed her temple with an irritated sigh, then inhaled from her cigarette again. "I mean..." she glanced over at a spot in the air above Ryan and the native mech pilot, "...the Therion could probably do it." The pale-faced teen shook her head then and blew the smoke out. "But I'd have to be there too. He doesn't go far. Ever." The last word had a little bit of venom in it.
  6. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    "I'm aware of that aspect of the plan, they want to detonate a neutron bomb and destroy all the life that's there. So far, that's been the only way to take out a hive. We've got only a few days until they drop it, whether we succeed or not." Ryan looked at her. "These Anvaari, they're highly adaptive, well with the metals in the mountain, when you drop the bomb this time they mutate again, and will become beyond any ability to deal with. So how about we go in and deal with the queen ourselves?" "The Hive is protected by hundreds of Anvaari like the ones you slew, as well as the little bugeyes. They look like a pair of eyes with a short body, and legs, but they shoot hyperaccurate lasers up to two miles away. its why any attack by air is doomed to fail. We came here with three hunded Amor Gears, the mech I was piloting, and we lost half of them taking out probably thirty percent of the Hive's defenses."
  7. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Yuuki's jaw worked in anger, lips pressing to a thin bloodless line. She'd been avoiding thinking about the idea of anyone nuking sacred Mount Fuji. If it had been a group of her countrymen on a desperate last stand basis, that was one thing. Barely. But a group of foreigners not in line with her country... Even if this hadn't been one of the GM's insane objectives, she'd have cared very, very much. "I don't know if you're aware. I hope the situation here isn't nearly that bad. But they seem to be planning to nuke Mount Fuji in a misguided effort to kill one of your 'Swarm Queens'," she ground out, losing all traces of her false smile, voice nearly a growl, "It... Won't help. Stopping *that travesty* is also important to our patron." The anger danced in her eyes like fire, "So, Captain Akisa-San, help us help you."
  8. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Ryoko's eyes narrowed, and she looked at Yuuki pointedly. "The Oceanic Alliance Is headquartered in Sydney, Australia. It's at their behest that We launched a fleet operation to take down the Hive in Japan. Why do they matter, aside that?" There was definitely bad blood there, and her whole demeanor had changed. "As for Adai, he's the Captain of First Squadron, which is Fighting over on Okinawa at the old United States Base. Supposedly there's expirimental tech there that we need to crack open the Hive's outer shell."
  9. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    "Nice to have a name to call you other than 'Four', Vesper-San," Yuuki couldn't help but comment a little snidely before turning an apologetic smile on Ryoko, "You'll have to forgive her, Akisa-San. With the exception of one of us, we're all very, very new at this. We are here to help though. Our... patron sent us to help you win this fight, little as he told us about the dangers you're facing." The green-haired shrine maiden laughed musically, more than a little self mocking. Dear kami, if *this* was a part of the Duty she;d have to get used to, she'd need to practice a better version of this spiel. "Actually, you're one of two people we've been told to keep an eye out for. You wouldn't happen to know where a Junichiro Adai and some sort of HQ for something called the 'Oceanic Alliance' are?"
  10. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Vesper produced another cigarette and gave Ryoko a diffident shrug. "Vesper. We're from another dimension or something. Hi."
  11. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Once they were all inside the somewhat cramped cockpit of the Gundam, Tori took off, and a minute later set down in a clearing Well away from the city. The Pilot cracked the seal on her helmet, revealing Dark brown eyes and asian features. She removed her helmet and looked at the four strangers. "Who the hell you, and how can you fight the Anvaari without a mecha? Speaking of Mecha, I've never seen one so sleek as this, and with such amazing response time..." Ryan held up a hand, to forestall the rush of questions. "We can answer all that, but you're gonna have to answer some questions for us too." The pilot looked at him and nodded. "Alright, I guess I should at least introduce myself to the people who saved me. I am Ryoko Akisa, Captain of the UFE's 13th Squadron, and the last survivor." Ryan nodded. "Pleasure to meet you Ryoko, glad we could help you out of a tight spot. My name's Ryan Church, I'll let my comrades introduce themselves, and answer your other questions."
  12. Tori Cannon

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Tori maneuver the Banshee around and picked up her passengers then following Ryan's instructions and directions moved to a safer spot.
  13. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Yuuki was giving the lion's share of attention to the mysterious pilot, helping her sit up, giving her the once over for obvious wounds and finding no sign of them. Good. And with the last monster dead... The others knew where she was. "My name is Ryougi Yuuki. What's yours? Are you okay? How many fingers am I holding up?" she gently probed, holding up the classic 'V for victory' in front of the pilot's face before adding more softly, "Was there anyone else inside the mech who needs help?" The shrine maiden really, really wanted her brother to be here. He was the one with *actual* first aid training if there was anything wrong or another pilot in worse shape inside the mech. Still, she knew enough to make sure that this one was fine before trying to force her to go anywhere or probe harder.
  14. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Vesper's attention was entirely focused, perhaps forgiveably, on the giant monsters who had just been incapacitated. When she heard something behind her, she sucked in a breath and whirled around, eyes wide and hands raised defensively. Almost immediately a shadow fell over both her and Ryan. The Therion, while much smaller than the monsters, was quite large in comparison to a couple of teenagers. "No!" Vesper blurted, whirling to face the hovering creature and throwing both of her arms out. "He just startled me. It's all right." The impenetrable void under the hood of the Therion's cassock stayed focused on Ryan for a long moment...then the shadows that made up its body blurred together and faded away, leaving nothing in their wake but a lingering chill in the air. Vesper let her breath out and turned back around. "It's better not to try to sneak up on me," she said in her customary deadpan voice. " Her eyes cut to one side then, towards the smoldering ruin of one of the giant bug-things. "I'm all right. What are those things?"
  15. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    With Yuuki swinging to safety carrying the pilot that left the others to deal with the final creature. Tori's stunning entrance and martial arts move immobilized the creature stunning it, and giving Ryan All the opportunity he needed, his sword flashing quickly twice in succession, cleaving through the head and neck of the stunned monster before landing only a few feet from Vesper with a smile, his weapon vanishing and a look of relief on his face. "Alright, that's done. I'm gonna need a minute or two and then we can keep going. That said, I recommend that Tori picks us up and we ride with her, all together somewhere abit safer, where we can see them coming. A city's okay to fight in, but there's next to no warning if more of these things head towards us." He was speaking into his phone, so all three of the other players could hear, though Vesper could easily as she was right there. He looked to Vesper and smiled. "You okay?"
  16. Tori Cannon

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    The Monster watched the two girls swinging away after it had smashed the shield with it's horrible green breath. It took a step back and shafted to bring it's weapon to bear on the building Yuuki and her charge landed on when suddenly, it was showered with debris! The building beside it had exploded as the Gleaming Mech piloted by Tori, smashed through it and came to a skidding halt wrapping it's arms tight around the monsters torso and lifting spinning and slamming it to the ground!
  17. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    The outermost members of the spectral grove died in green fire, bringing an echo of phantom pain to Yuuki with it. She managed to keep all but the faintest of winces from her face, pulling the other woman to her side. She kept the smile up, trying to maintain the confidence in her helmed-and-plugsuited rescuee, monster or no monster. "Hold on. I'm getting us clear while my... the others kill it," she put out, not quite entirely certain what to call her so-called teammates yet, "This'll be over soon, and we can introduce ourselves properly." With that, the shrine maiden kicked off the branch, one arm tight around the other woman, whip lashing out to anchor itself and shift their momentum into an upward arc. World spinning around her, Yuuki angled herself to take the brunt of their landing. She closed her golden eyes as they cleared the lip of the roof, bracing internally for the thud and bounce.
  18. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    It was an impressive show and Even Ryan paused, as he readied himself for another leaping strike to finish off the last of the three creatures that had gone after Tori. He didn't need to it turned out, as Tori had the situation in hand knocking the creature from its feet with a Savage kick that they all heard bones breaking from, as bits of teeth showered the battlefield. With her Combat Knife she ended it, as she split the beast's heart, bisecting it completely. When she withdrew the blade blood gushed out. Down the first street they'd emerged on, Therion heed his mistress commands, Slicing through the remaining arm and then the creature's head even as its mind broke under the mental assault from Vesper. That left only one of the creatures still on the field, and it unleashed the attack that they'd first seen one use, a Torrent of green flames from the mouth, Bathing the defensive barrier errected by Yuuki with hellish green light. Nothing got through the shield, but Yuuki could feel the shield's effectiveness drop. (will be effectively 9 ranks vs next attack) The creature seemed to not regard the loss of all its comrades, it was fixed on killing those before it. The pilot only nodded, It was a woman, She could now see, and took the offered hand, Even as the creature raged before them.
  19. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Vesper inhaled to scream, and instead channeled all of the surge of anger and terror into another wave of malevolent psychic energy that crashed over the monster's cerebellum and overloaded yet more of its oversized neurons! In the world of flesh and blood she scrambled backwards, trying to get some distance between her and it now that the protection given her was gone! "No," she protested, "No...Therion kill it!" The Therion soared down to interpose itself between her and the monster...ludicrously tiny compared to it, but the inhuman blood dripping from its black-bladed instrument was proof that it could not be taken lightly. The translucent cowled cloak rippled as it spun the scythe around, and thrust it towards the bizarre alien monster, slashing it repeatedly! Mind blast (30 damage, psychic, drain mind 2, drain 25 energy): 2d6+6 15 Therion attack/attack, 72 damage/hit, Spreading 3: 2d6+8 13 2d6+8 18
  20. Tori Cannon

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Tori swooped in toward the Lead monster er power reserves running low and not knowing how many more of these things they would have to face she changed tactic. Coming in low she flipp and fired her breaking jets cutting all power at the last second she crashed to the ground and executed a nearly flawless spinning back kick witch connected with the monsters face. As she spun she triggered her Combat Blade and a huge sword like edged weapon shot from a concealed section of Banshee's right arm to extend out over her clenched fist. Blade in place she finished her spin and drove the giant knife into the monsters chest.
  21. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Exhaling in relief, Yuuki spared 'Four' a momentarily look of apology before letting go of her hold over her magic protecting the dark clad girl. Ryan had her covered. The spectral thicket withered and died in a heartbeat even as the black-clad shrine maiden kicked off from her perch and whip reached out to bring her around to a perfect three-point landing on a branch adjacent to the widening hatch. A seed appeared in her clenched fist, illuminating her features from below as she rose to her feet. The shrine maiden half-turned and chucked the seed at the ground below her. "Sacred Bamboo Grove Ramparts!" she called out before turning to face the hatch fully, backlit by the miraculous foliage sprouting between them and the oncoming beast, a beaming smile of reassurance popping into being on her striking features from long practice, voice soothing, "I've got you. Let's get you to safety."
  22. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    The creatures engulfed by Tori's attacks both let out loud anguished screams as their flesh melted under the hellish fire of the buster canons' attacks. As She caught them both, Ryan launched himself back through the air, this time making two attacks on the trailing creature, felling it for good as he sliced the head clean away after Tori's attacks. The creature heading at Vesper Reared up raising one of the hammer like claws to flatten her, even as her psychic assault battered it's miniscule mind, and there was the sound of the air being sliced, and then the raised claw fell back onto the broken pavement, severed from the arm, and jetting blood. The creature screamed and brought around the other claw, which swiped a foot over her head barely missing decapitating the young psychic. The Final one was undetterred as the nearly dead tree seemingly burst into a vibrant and massive oak, it's thick branches now obscuring its path, and holding up the disabled mech on its right side. On the back of the mech, she could see a seam open, as two hands appeared out of the widening hatch, it seemed the pilot was alright after all.
  23. Tori Cannon

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Tori flitted the Banshee around and angled her targeting reticule. There were too many of them to go one at a time. if we did that they would get us from attrition. She made some fast calculations then locked on to the monster in the middle of the pack. She swooped up high clearing all the building and the Buster cannon flipped up over the shoulder and with a low boom spit out two blazing energy bolts one after the other.
  24. Vesper

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    When the creature had come apart under the Therion's scythe blade, Vesper felt a chill run down her back. She'd thought it might distract the creature, or weaken it so the giant robots could finish the job. Instead it had slaughtered the monster completely! That was what this thing that dogged her steps could do, if it was moved to. Then more of the giant, bizarre leviathans showed up and when one of them came at HER, she nearly lost it and ran. It was HUGE. Did they even feel her powers? She couldn't TELL. What she could tell was that it was moving a lot faster than she could. Those long legs carried it with terrifying speed. So Vesper lifted her arms and crossed them at the wrist. Rocks and gravel and bits of twigs and old dried leaves began swirling in circle around her feet, whipped up by a sudden and contained wind. The breeze wasn't what she was protecting herself with, of course. The dust storm and wind were just byproducts of the barriers she was creating. It still felt pitifully weak compared to the size of this brute, but it was all she had. "Therion!" she yelled. "Help!" Then she locked eyes with oncoming doom and flung as much malice at it as she could muster! (Force Field is 20 points of armor) Mind blast (30 damage, psychic, drain mind 2, drain 25 energy): 2d6+6 12 Almost immediately there was that roaring, rushing, whooshing noise. Even invisible, the sun overhead Vesper seemed to ripple and dim as the spirit's influence fell over her. Perhaps to distract the creature, the Therion exploded into visibility, coalescing from nothingness into a smoky figure of a billowing, hooded dark robe that concealed all the features of the thing within it, wielding a huge scythe of molded black iron and shadows. It dove down onto the monster charging Vesper and swung its implement around in a full circle, fast enough that the follow-through slashed at it again before Therion stopped moving to survey the results. Therion attack/attack, 72 damage/hit, Spreading 3: 2d6+8 15 2d6+8 16
  25. Ryougi Yuuki

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    Yuuki was only peripherally aware of the fight, the lion's share of her attention on a nearly-dead tree next to the downed mech. There. That was the way. Still hanging from her whip on the side of the building with her feet bracing against the wall, she pointed at the forlorn plant, green glow building in her whole body. The magic rustled and fluttered through her veins, denying aid unless she did one simple thing. "Bounded Field Blooming!" the shrine maiden called, shaking her head as the glow pulsed out into the ground and structures around her before collapsing into her woody target. For a moment, nothing. Then new leaves sprouted on branches bearing fresh, strong bark. Concrete shattered as the tree exploded in girth, depth, and height. Yuuki's free hand directed the unnatural growth to purpose, swift sure movements that had the mech securely braced and pushed onto it's side with an almighty clang.
  26. Justin OOC

    Level 1: Mecha and Monsters

    The unseen assailant's attacks were the final straw, the cuts were deep and cut through organs the creature needed to live, and it haplessly flopped into a pile of tissue on the pavement with a wet impact they'd not forget. With one creature down, and given the way it died, the reaction of the other creatures was somewhat surprising. They charged, 3 going after Tori, one going towards the downed mecha, and the last going towards Vesper, who was seemingly undefended. It was right then That they saw Ryan Leap from high up on the building, The sword in his hand growing larger, nearly six feet in length, even as it's shape changed from a normal blade to a huge dual edged daiklaive. He hit the trailing creature going after Tori, and with a single slash, separated the head part of the creature from it before landing, standing on the side of a building across from it, as the creature fell. His hands and feet were wreathed in blue runic lines of script, and he smiled. "Headshot." How exactly he'd pulled it off was a matter for later, but it did significantly cut the odds against them.
