    Also, if anybody wants to have any background with Lilly, I am open to it now that Kia, her BFF is gone. heh
  3. Today
  4. THE SIMON MAGUS BURLESQUE AND ABSINTHE BAR Dominique held out a hand toward the box, but never came close to touching it, but wanting to verify what it was. She could feel the dark magic, the same she had felt just minutes before, emanating from the contents of the box and nodded. "That's more of them." she said flatly. "I knew either you or Mr. Walker hand them since you both arrived at the same time." she added. Dominique twirled the shot glass on the table as she let out a small sigh, looking at the box and considering things. "Here's the thing. The rest of you look at 'em bones an' see an item of power, or a weapon, or whatever. And that is what they seem to be, so no judgement from me 'bout that. But they are items of dark magic... very bad juju that one does consider usin' lightly." she said reassuringly, holding up a hand in a 'calm down' gesture to cut off anybody who might have seemed slighted. The young, beautiful black woman continued after giving a moment to make sure nobody was getting upset, twisting her head to the right and then left, to whip her dreads over her shoulder and behind, careful not to hit anybody. "But that's not all they are. As a witch, I look at 'em an' see the bones of a fellow witch, one that was never laid to rest, never allowed to return to the earth. She met a horrible end, one that nobody should face, an' now for over four centuries this woman's spirit has endured, her curse an' hatred and the time of her death fuelin' 'em bones with a dark magic. She deserves her peace. So, if we agree to work together to stop her, an' survive, then when it's all said an' done, I'd like to do just that... put her at peace and be rid of this dark magic. I hope the rest of you can agree." she explained, leaving it at that. She took in a deep sigh and let it out, shifting her thought a bit to the more direct matters hand. "Now, I am not sure how these came to be in your possession..." she said, looking to Dan and Colby, "..but I can tell a few things. However... novel... it may be to keep the bones of the dead in a small tin box, it's not particularly safe. So I can only imagine that they were kept stored away. If you have a few minutes, I can make somethin' that is not only a bit more respectful of the dead, but can also help protect the bearer from the bad juju radiatin' from 'em bones." she offered to Dan. "Oh. And I know where most, if not all, of the rest of the bones are too." she tossed in almost as an afterthought. "So a few things." Dominue said as she pulled out her phone and typed out a text to Darrik one handed as she spoke. Text to Darrik: "I'm not sure of the exact nature of Marko's curse, but judgin' by what he said earlier, I think it is workin' in our favor for the time bein'. Unfortunately, I'd bet that she had 'em cursed in the first place, knowing he would come back here and that, for whatever reason, would bring out the twins, maybe to help him? Anyways, if she had 'em cursed, she might be able to have it broken too. And that would be bad." Dominique turned to face Colby more fully, letting him take her in, in all her beauty and resemblance to her grandmother at the same age, and asked, "So Mr. Walker... Colby... Do you know anythin' about the ritual that was foiled last night or of a witch called 'Mother Walters'?"

    A lot of you have been wanting to put the military base into your backgrounds for this or that and because it's easy. i have been discouraging this for most. The base is a high security special forces training base, even the civilian dependents don't live on the actual base but in housing adjacent to the base. The only civilian interaction with the base is the few businesses located outside the base, the few, less than a dozen school aged children who go to school in shelly, and the military members who come into the town to shop or for recreation. I kept the base in this version of Shelly because a couple of the legacy charters had back grounds tied to the base and I do foresee some story plot points that could involve the base. but for the most part it's just there. Another point....Wealth i don't mind you having wealth 1, but everybody shouldn't have it, this is a rural low income area, most of us should have no wealth edge, the richest people are the doctors and some of the people who have acquired a lot of the oil land. you can have families with money but keep it proportional to the location. Devin's dads wealth is fine because Devin's dad is a dishonest jerk and probably embezzled or scammed his money from widows and orphans and fled to this remote corner of nowhere to escape the vengeful wrath of someone. don't worry he will pay for his misdeeds. So while I don't mind the wealth edge keep the descriptions consistent with where you are
  6. The psionic scientist looks carefully at the the captured meteor, then at Starsign and Mega Girl. "I think we're dealing with a railgun, don't you? That would suggest that there is a base of some sort or launch platform from which it would originate. Possibly an asteroid, moon or planet for the raw materials. By extension, we are talking about a more traditional, scientific methodology rather than magic-based. Well, at least I can work with that." He then looks upward to the top of the stairs. "Starsign? Mega Girl? Can either of you determine the point of origin from here?"
  7. Hey guys, I've talked to Justin about joining the game, and he's agreed to let me after the current issue so I figured I'd give a heads up on what I am working on. My concept is an ex-cop who obtained powers when his erratic genius of an Uncle (think Doc. Emmet Brown from Back to the Future) "experimented" on his during his recovery from a crippling on the job accident. I'm calling him Dauntless, and he has enhanced physical traits, super senses (enhanced sight, olfactory & hearing, UV vision and X-Ray vision) and the ability to adapt to any environment or attack he is exposed to. He also has cybernetic implants that allow him to teleport the super science gadgets his Uncle creates to him (The Gadget power). That is the really rough concept I'm working on right now.
  8. Yesterday
  9. It was all Karen could do to keep from rolling her eyes at the fact this whole mess was because one vampire wanted to use two other vampires as bait to lure in a pair of really old vampires and kill them using a set of really old bones as a power up. Charming. She did kick back a second drink now, feeling bile at the back of her throat at the whole situation, "Now? I'm betting the witches use the bones to come up with some mojo to blow up Erica while the rest of us buy them time to do so. Question being, can they do it by tonight should our not-so-little hybrid get bored with Marko, I think, and come looking for the packs while we're... effectively out of the picture. Also, are your four friends on your side or Erica's side, Mr. Walker? Just how many people, for want of a better word, are we talking about going against?"
  10. THE SIMON MAGUS BURLESQUE AND ABSINTHE BAR After the story, and because his other choice was to just leave and face the white wolf alone, he sighed. "If you'll all excuse me, I'll be right back, I think I've got something relevant to this after all." Leaving the lounge and with a clear path outside thanks to the goon squad hitting the bar, Dan head out to his truck, retrieving the box, which was still sealed, and brought it back in with him. He reentered the Lounge and set the box on the table. "Something tells me, these are more of those bones. I was entrusted with these by the Crescents, After I went to broker an alliance between the packs to keep us safe with Erica on the loose." His voice was quiet, to keep his words from spreading beyond the room, and he looked to the others. "So where do we go from here?" It was clear he wasn't really willing to surrender the case, or the responsibility, but hearing the story, he'd not be surprised by them being some of the bones. Finding out for sure was a step in the right direction.
  11. Jess looked at her two companions, "We can't let this slow us down. I thing both Mega-girl and I could take a hit but not sure about you doc. So the stairs are wide enough for us to climb as a compact group, the meteors are coming from one direction, so far, if Mega-girl and I climb on the outside with you, Doc beside us on the inside, I can use my force-field to deflect any that come close and if one gets past it will hit one of us."
  12. THE SIMON MAGUS BURLESQUE AND ABSINTHE BAR Colby shook his head at Cara's question. "No I can't turn into a wolf anymore but the old blood still holds, she could probably compel me but she never has, those others, including that cunt who turned me, not a chance. i know how this ends for me. She could have made me like her but she didn't, that tells me all I need. As for the bones It all started a long time ago..." Colby relates the story of the Bones that he had told to Marko and Cara the night before. When he finishes he takes another shot of tequila. "She hates them, the originals, I don't know why, she claims to one of them or at least like them and frome what I have seen I believe her. But she is worse than them, I knew the twins they were crazy and fucked up but they would never hurt this city. She'll turn the streets red with blood if she thinks it will get her what she wants. That's why I'm here."
  13. Enter the Dungeon There was no answer to Summer's outburst, no change in the room, only silence, as the two Superpowered Sisters stood there. Clearly, not playing along was a choice he was prepared for. Their foe wasn't on a clock, the heroes were. While they sat, the videos of them sitting there were still being broadcast, though the view count wasn't ticking up as it had been. In fact it was actually starting to fall, as people began to see that they really were just not doing anything. Office Space Elastica managed to catch one of the Zombies, but not the others, and Columbian actually managed two with his weapons. Meanwhile Hex caught the last two with a powerful eldritch blast, removing the threats from the room, and revealing that there were two different paths from the room, that they'd missed before. Ascending Eternity Working together, the trio was prepared for the next group of four meteors that came by after another five minutes. With Starsign's shield to begin arresting the speed, Doc Psypher latched on with his Telekinesis, just as her forcefield broke. With all his might, he held back on the meteor, which was slowed enough for the Incredibly strong Mega Girl to reach out and grab the meteor and she could feel some discomfort as it hit her hand, but with their combined efforts they were able to bring one in, and the Starsign began analysis. "This Meteor is made of Roughly forty percent Iron,forty percent Nickel, and a tungsten core." It was nearly the recipe for a railgun round. They were being periodically peppered by a railgun, and it was only by luck they'd not been hit.
  14. Once out of the tent, Vesper made use of her disguise, and the general tumult, to get a little bit of a look around the camp. There were others in the distinctive garb of mages running around, but none of them had the same aura of respect and power as the ones she and the Therion had killed. More importantly, there were just too many soldiers scurrying around now. She and her spirit companion could carve a swath, but they'd be overwhelmed in the end. She'd done what she could. She made her way towards the edge of the encampment and found an escarpment that she used to break line of sight quickly. Once out of crossbow range, she had Therion pick her up and fly her for a little ways to avoid patrols. Finally Vesper made it to the spot Izona was maintaining her spell at. Ryan was there, a few fresh bandages on his arm and shoulder, but otherwise all right. The bodies of several assassins had been dragged away and piled up off to the side. "They sent them before I got there," Vesper said, and Ryan just nodded. She added, "I got the mages who were in charge. I don't think the rest can do anything about this." "Good news," said Ryan. "Are you okay?" Vesper took a breath and thought, then shrugged and looked away. "I'm...fine. I'll check on Yuuki before I head in." Ryan stepped forward and took hold of her arm. "She's okay, Vesper. Go back to the tents. Get some rest. You did your...you did what you had to do. You did good." She stood still, her face a mask, then pulled her arm away and walked off...towards the tents. There was a report to make. The archmages were dead.
  15. I sent you a new sheet. Going to add in the backstory and all, but there's a name and all that.

  17. EDGES New and player created Edges will go here MENTAL PHYSICAL SOCIAL Popularity (• to •••) by Dave ST (replace Fame for our game, Nina) Essentially this is Fame for characters who've yet to reach adulthood and are still traveling in rather small, but well known cultures within their own community. Your character is well known among a particular clique of people. He could be popular for his money, personal accomplishments, a stroke of blind luck, or perhaps for being the friend or lover of someone with more Popularity (often know as popularity bleed, or popular by proxy). • The character is well known within a small subculture in their neighborhood (like their school) or among select members of their home town's adult leadership (like community leaders, or faculty from their school). Whether well earned or not, the characters reputation grants them certain perks, like avoiding getting trouble or being allowed to stay later someplace after hours and 'lock up when you're done'. •• The character is either instantly recognizable to all members of his local community, like the small town quarterback who threw the winning pass last season, or the entire county in which he/she dwells. The county sheriff whose been around for years would be a prime example of two dots of county-wide popularity ••• Your character's popularity is now at a statewide level, perhaps a governor or an athlete who has brought quite a bit of accolades in the states name either recently or in the past few years. When choosing the Edge, define what your character is known for (star athlete, down home girl next door, scholastic ace, local rich guy). Each dot provides 1 Enhancement to any social actions among those who are impressed by their status. Drawback: Any attempts to find or identify your character gain 1 Enhancement per dot of the Edge. Also, he may have several 'hangers on' or be followed by people who just want to mooch of their popularity. Characters with Popularity, like the Fame Edge, cannot possess the Covert Edge or the Anonymous Enhanced Edge. Also, if you or someone else is part of 'popularity bleed' they can not possess more Popularity dots than the person who made them popular.
  18. Preheat for 350. Let bake for 30 minutes, tweak as needed...

  19. Last week
  20. I'm working on rewriting Fame and switching it to Popularity. The below 18, still dealing high school drama version of Fame. Essentially it will be Fame-lite and more suitable for kids in a small town and focus more on smaller influence scale. I'll submit it to you Nina when I get it done.
  21. ADDITIONAL PATHS - I will add any new Paths created by us here ORIGIN Broken Home – Divorce is a plague for many especially the children. You are from a broken home, your parents divorced, whether it was amicable or not it means your mom and dad live seperatly. You live with one and visit the other. There always seems to be a push and pull not only from the parents but also from you. There may be boyfriends and girlfriends even step parents and siblings. It leaves a mark regardless. Skills: Empathy, Integrity, Persuasion, Technology Connections: Close Friend, Pitying Neighbor, Aunt or Uncle Edges: Ms. Fixit, Big Hearted, Patron, Safe House, Skilled Liar, Iron Will, Artistic Talent ROLE
  22. Addendum: When spending bonus points on Edges only purchase dots in Edges listed under Mental, Physical, and Social.

    ok there is a bit of confusion over psion powers and who gets what and where can we over lap. In the aberrant game I created an insurmountable power creep. I am not going to do that this time but I am also not going to cripple Psions and I am not going to force people to play something they don't want to. I wasn't expecting 10 players but it's cool I don't want anyone to drop, I just wasn't expecting it. Powers are not going to surface in the game for a while, not in any meaningful way anyways. So this is what I want y'all to do As things sit everyone wants to be a psion, that is Okay everyone can be a Psion my house rules will accommodate that. so right now we will assume that every one will be a psion. I want everyone to stop worrying about what powers they will have and what others have and concentrate on your character. Right now they are just teenagers and powers are thing in movies, TV, games, and comic books. Make your characters skipping the Power template and write up your back grounds. When you send them to me I want you to include three aptitude choices in order of preference. When the Powers come they may not all come at once, and there will be overlap, and there will be some powers that are primarily unique. There will also be instances where a character in play may have the opportunity to switch from psion to talent if the player wishes. that is all
  27. Bannon will be psychokinetic - a bundle of suppressed rage and energy
