Full Description

Aberrant: Weirder Stuff this is an Aberrant game using an original setting.

In Aberrant: Weirder Stuff (henceforth AWS) you will play a Quantum Enhanced Human who must decide how to live with your new found powers and what role you will play in the coming world upheaval. It is a modern setting/Supers/Scifi/Weird Adventure which will run in a concurrent time line to our own reality. Focus will be Character Drama, Us against them, facing the Unknown, and Action. Oh and there may be sex.

The game will begin, but not be restricted to, a small town in Montana. The town is a Fictionalized version of Shelly Montana ( based on the town of Shelby  http://www.city-data.com/city/Shelby-Montana.html ). The general public are not aware of Quantum Enhanced Humans (Novas in base aberrant), although if your a nerd and google every weird thing in the world (I'm not saying it's aliens … but it's aliens) there are stories of... well weird shit happening, some of which are true.

Enhanced Humans first began manifesting about 10-15 years ago, although these early manifestations were primarily low level mega stat recipients and went undetected by even those who manifested. Over the intervening years more low level manifestations have occurred and were first discovered by the government agency responsible for creating them (unknowingly, more on that later). This discovery took place about 5 years ago . The exact cause of the manifestation of super normal abilities is not yet known but there are theories. There are few QEHs (Quantum Enhanced Humans) in existence all of which are from the united states and all who manifested in one of 3 locations and all of which are government employees. These couple of dozen or so QEHs possess powers that range from low level mega stats (1 -2 dot) to low level provable psychic abilities such as telepathy, esp, etc. The government is unaware of any massive super powered people and in fact there have been no such manifestations. Until now.

  1. What's new in this game
  2. ...And that is how they started shipping us in the fanfics.
  3. Heya Nina. I'm still interested in my cold-blooded criminal as a character, and you did mention having some ideas for him. I completely understand if you don't want to start new stories, but if you are taking requests then I'd be happy to write as Casimir. Alternatively I can shelve him for use later on.
  4. I will look at things after this weekend and my vacation trip. Hopefully that will reinvigorate my enthusiasm. I will make no promises but I don't like leaving things unfinished it makes me feel like I failed. max most of us are in discord sitting quietly just like we do in chat so...join us if you can
  5. I would like to confer with you, Nina, on a couple of things. Was hoping to do it in chat, but that seems not to be an option. I'll PM you when I get a chance.
  6. You won't receive requests, Nina. The sad truth is most gamers are lazy and complacent, they won't actually reach out to find out what's going on. They'll sit and monitor the thread, waiting for someone to bait them or the ST into giving up something so they can chime in with something that appears to be interest. Like I just did. Anyway, I'm down for finishing out the threads. I'd pick it up afterwards, but we all know I'm not in a position at the mo' to take on more games.
  7. I've had bad experiences with open world games, but, sure, if Nina's up for one last rodeo to wrap up the current thread, I'll ride.
  8. I would like to at least finish out the current thread and see where things stand from there.
  9. i have received no requests to continue with the things I said i would if anyone wanted me to. I am still open to that.
  10. So, on a serious note... Anyone planning on doing something with this? I'd hate to see it die because people stopped posting.
  11. NIIIINNNAAAAA! Tell Jaunt to share the kwontum powers!
  12. No! I'm immune to layz0rz! You're cheating. I'm telling Nina. NIIIIIIIIIINNNAAAAAA!
  13. Pew! Pew! I shoot Jaunt with my mega-lazors which are the only thing that can beat him.
  14. Cool. I'm Quantum 11 with all stats and powers at 11. This hike power came at the expense of having to steal it from everyone else so everyone who in not Jaunt was reduced to Quantum 4 in the process. Since he is, in effect, God, no one can regain any of their lost power without his okay first. Happy posting! No take backs, I called it first! Shoulda said something before I did. You snooze you loose!
  15. Let me be clear AWS is now open world... I haven't closed or cancelled the game but i am not going to force anyone to post in my plots or to post the way I feel they should post. I am not going to enforce rules and shit. Y'all are adults and you know what you want to do and how to do it. I will still post where I feel like posting and will even continue GMing to a degree but let me be clear This is your game now. If you want to post with your characters post with them if you don't, don't but that choice is entirely up to you. If you want my advice on something ask me whether you use my advice is up to you. If you start a thread here it is your thread you can do whatever you want. I would ask that if you do make a new thread and call it aws at least try to follow the world we have created to this point. but if you don't i'm not gonna take away your birthday The solo threads I have started for some characters I am willing to continue at least until the completion of the first issues... GDP this includes your character even though i had not posted it yet. After the 1st issues they are yours. or you can just cut me out and do what ever. If you want me to finish those issues let me know here or in a pm. As for the main thread with the Irregulars. There are two active plots and there is an over arching plot. If you wish complete the two active plots as players I can either give some one the pertinent information and they can "take over" or I can finish them in an abbreviated form. The overarching plot was going to thread through the individual books and culminate in a big crossover some where down the line. that was the plan. If y'all continue and wish to i can advise about this or co gm it. but thats up to y'all and we can discuss it individually as needed What does this mean for my other games? The Shadows will continue as is. If any of you wish to drop out please let me know so I can work that in but i do not see shadows changing due to this. Nova Praxis/Starfinder - both of these games are on life support. NP in it's current form is not working for me. I will finish the current story on the Ginger Snap side. Dragonsclaw I will try to finish but I am having difficulty in tying it together so I make no promises. Once this is accomplished NP will either be completely retooled to combine the characters or may be cancelled and replaced with a different hard scifi game. I have not decided what to do with it yet. That leaves Starfinder. I do not know what to do here. so I will leave it up to those of you playing SF. If you wish to continue SF as a game you need to post. I have two of you who post regularly Char and Jer. The rest of you for whatever reason either have to be reminded eveytime or post as an after thought or don't post at all. If y'all want to continue Sf i need commitment to posting from more than two of you. if not I will cancel SF and move on. I know this is the aws OOC but since all of you or most of you are in aws and one or more other games I wanted to get this out there and didn't feel the need for a bunch of posts saying the same thing. We all have real lives outside of this website. but we choose to come here because this place fills a need. We all love this hobby. But we don't all share the same values or the same ideas even when it comes to our hobbies. I do things differently than Dave, or Noir, or Justin, or Sean. I don't like the same things that you like in some cases and not to the same degree in others. and you all have similar likes and dislikes. We don't always see eye to eye and sometime we get frustrated. Frustrated with the games we are playing, Frustrated with the games we are running. Frustrated with each other. and Frustrated with Real life. This is a place to relax and have fun. When that is no longer what is happening, things need to change. And the only thing we can change is ourselves. I'm starting to ramble
  16. never mind what i said this is y'alls game now post what ever you want, not my place to tell you how to role play
  17. "Yeah," Jaunt replied to Lilly, since Sage was essentially ignoring him. "And for the record, sweetness," they both disappeared in wispy haze of purple distortions that always followed one Jaunt's jaunts. They were standing on an observation deck, the one the others knew was Jaunt's 'favorite'. The view was spectacular and looked down upon a blue and white marble of wonderment and infinite possibilities. From they stood, they were, for all their power and might, tiny little things part of a grander, larger scheme. "I can always tell which of you is the Prime, hun. I just like letting you keep your mystery." Lilly remained unfaltered by change in scenery. She knew Jaunt well enough to know that when around him for any length of time that a jaunt or two was almost expected. The only thing that set this time apart from others, was he didn't touch or attune her... he simply willed her to join him, and she did. "Is that so?" She folded her arms in a friendly challenge of his claim. "It is," Jaunt looked out the large window and allowed himself to be swept up in the maelstrom of emotions that came with such amazing view. "See, Lils, quantum flows in everything, like the Force, it's a part of us, all of us. I can see it in ways others can't, like a thread or lattice of all energy, matter, thoughts, love, hate, you name it. It all has a color, a pattern, a reason. You? The lattice wraps and twists around around your heart, vibrant and full of love and life. Your clones? They are everything you are, but they don't have that lattice around the heart, babe." He turned and faced her, leaning against the massive glass wall, folding his arms. "I should have guessed that if any of us would share our heart with the world, it'd be you. You're the best of all of us." "You really see that? Seriously?" Her eyes narrowed in wait if one of Devin's sarcastic punchlines. "I do," he vanished from the glass and appeared just inches from her. With a closeness only two lovers could have been familiar with he gently traced his thumb down her soft cheek. "And thank you. For always keeping faith in me, despite my best efforts to push you and everyone else away." Just like in Australia, he had that look in his eyes, that soft, seductive measure to his voice and a closeness that told her he was gonna go for it all over again, like nothing ever happened and everything between them was going to be okay.
  18. Surprised as he was by direct telepathic communication from Lilly, Abel didn't show it as he sat at a console in the command center, watching video of the Tokyo attacks, and he frowned. <Jeane, do you mind coming to the bridge, I'd like to see the rifle you recovered, and I'd like for you to brief me on went on in New York.> Of course she didn't need to be there for that, but all the same it gave Jeane a reason to leave that was valid.
  19. "Nice," she replied easily before rolling her eyes at the closest Vanguard, manner easy, "And I apologize for supporting your 'pitch'. It's not like we invite just anyone up here. I was guessing blind, although it was pretty obvious that Haruka's awesome." Inwardly, she scoffed back in the face of Lilly's irritation, the courage of one who volunteered to fight monsters in an almost literal hell every other weekend or so making her stand her ground. She'd literally fought bigger and meaner. 'Oh step off,' Jeane thought over the link, 'As if you've never made a risky play that might not work out.'
  20. "We did not know that your sister knew, so it was not right to try and out you, even to a family member. It's not how we do things. We are supposed to have more respect and consideration than that." one Lilly said to Cade while the other looked to Jeane. "So I am sorry for that, even if it did luckily happened to work out."
  21. Cade was fairly taken aback by Jaunt's comments, and his face went blank as he did his best to stifle his annoyance with the other young man. Before he could really do anything in response, the dual Vanguards spoke up and whisked him and his sister away for a tour of the station, which was a welcome diversion from the Doucheporter. The tour was fun enough, then Jeane, the huge blonde, effectively outed him. He grunted with annoyance, but shrugged. He already knew at least one of them knew he was a Key, and if he'd heard and understood correctly, then Abel was capable of reading minds, so he probably knew too. The young Key sighed, and turned to give Jeane a Look. Then he looked to the Vanguard trying to play it off. "I appreciate it Lilly, really, but in this one instance, it's okay. My sister already knows that I'm a Key. I knew that accepting your invitation was likely going to result in more people knowing, but I chose to come anyway. " His sister looked at him, abit shocked over him just openly admitting the secret they'd shared, and he squeezed her hand. "I was signalling Lilly the moment I realized the threat that guy posed, so yeah, she knew. It was worth it to make sure all those people were safe, and that nobody really got hurt." The younger girl hugged her brother and smiled. "See, I told you you'd meet other keys one day and it wouldn't be so bad." He nodded. "Yeah, but I can kiss that scholarship to Tokyo Tech goodbye." He looked to Lilly, then Jeane. "So yeah, I'm the one with the fun quantum fueled powers. My sister's the awesome one who's kept that secret since she found out." He smiled brightly, and nodded.
  22. << Dude! WHAT THE SHIT?!?! >> the dual Lilly thought right to Jeane in stereo with a force of shock and anger the younger Key had never even remotely felt from her before, though they both maintained their composure. One Lilly chuckled and shook her head while the other spoke to the brother and sister. "I think Jeane here took me recounting the early days of our key-hood.. key-ness.. post-unlocking... whatever you want to call it... as some sort of pitch or something. And even on the astronomically remote chance that one of you somehow happened to be a Key, none of us would be so rude as to 'out' you to the other or anybody else." she explained with an amused smile. << You do NOT go outing KEYs like that, even to their family, if it can AT ALL be avoided. We didn't even out you, if you remember. We left it up to you to live your life or tell your parents or whatever. That is a matter of consideration, respect and decency. >> one thought to Jeane. <<Why don't you go find Abel or something. Seriously. Both of me got this well in hand. >> the other then thought to Jeane, her.. well 'irritation' was not exactly a strong enough word, plainly evident. << So Jeane is here outing Cade to his sister. I think we cleaned it up, but just thought you should know. >> she though to Lilly Prime, who sighed when she received the message. << Dude. You seem to be tight with Jeane. Can you get her out of my hair. She's trying to out the guy to his sister, and that is soo not cool. >> she thougbt to Abel.
