  1. A smirk plays across Chance's face as Lusunga speaks, "Umm, okay...there's no need to be so serious. As for what you did as soldier, I'm happy not knowing the details. As for me, I don't have any cool superpowers or anything. I'm just a regular guy with a bit of an adrenaline addiction."
  2. Chance raises an eyebrow and shrugs, "Well, I'm not sure I like the idea of being commanded...I mean, do we really need someone in charge? There's only four of..." he glances over his shoulder at the casket-like box Gakusha was in, "three of us. But hey, if you want to make the decisions, I'm not going to stop you."
  3. Chance was still staring at the cocoon that Gakusha had been placed in and so missed most of the conversation. He'd of course seen Orthitech before, but he hadn't seen anyone react like that before. It freaked him out a bit, but he did he best to hide it. Catching the last bit of Sigil's words, he turned and smiled to the pretty fairy/woman/whatever she was, "Hey I'm up for whatever. You guys just tell me where to land and I'll get you there."
  4. "Wow, that was awesome!" Chance exclaims as the shuttle takes its orbit over the planet. Without even waiting for the small hologram to say anything, his hands had grabbed the controls and maneuvered the ship to give an even better view of the planet. "That is pretty awesome," he said as he looked out, "This is my first alien planet. I guess I can check that off the list." He considered saying something in response to the question about how to proceed, but realized that he couldn't actually remember what exactly it was they were here for.
  5. Hey guys, sorry for disappearing. I forgot to let you all know that I was going on a safari in Kenya last week and had no internet access. On a positive note, the safari was AWESOME!
  6. Try as he might, Chance couldn't stifle the chuckle that escaped him when Ditra mentioned she was "fully functional." In truth, Chance could confirm that statement. Well, not in relation to Ditra 55 specifically, though not for want of trying, but there was this pink nameless, the one he'd been at Take 6 with just the day before, that he'd tested that theory with. Smiling briefly at the memory of his first encounter with the nameless, Chance turned to Sigil and winked, "It's not always about duties here, I mean everyone needs some time off to relax and enjoy themselves, right?"
  7. Chance by now had completely tuned out the conversation going on, his attention span having completely expired. So, as the effect of gravity in the capsule began to fade away, Chance started bouncing off the walls with a smile on his face offering a hand to Sigil for her to join him.
  8. Chance nodded at regular intervals, not really paying much attention to the briefing until mention of the shuttle, "Sweet, this is gonna be awesome. You guys are gonna love the jump gun."
  9. Hmm, I'm not sure we are in agreement yet, and that might make things troublesome in the game. I guess here's my point, I was under the impression we are playing Adventure!, not a "generic pulp style game." That's an important distinction because in the Adventure! setting, you do have people with bullets bouncing off of their chests, people who can literally regenerate missing limbs, conjure flame from out of nowhere, heal people with a touch and control people's minds. Heck, the main character travels through time. By definition those things are not going against the genre of Adventure!, otherwise they wouldn't be in the game. It almost seems as if you guys are looking more for an Adventure! game where only daredevils are allowed. That would definitely keeps things to a more 'realistic' yet still pulpy feel.
  10. Hellhound, in my opinion buying up your Inspiration pool is really not worth it. The Inspirattion you buy just raises the starting pool, but once it's used, it's gone. It DOESN'T raise your pools maximum or anything like that. As for bullets bouncing off of chests, my character will be doing that with Body of Bronze. I think maybe we all need to expand our concept of pulp a bit. This is a game with talking gorillas and mind control. Don't forget that movies like The Mummy (the Brendan Fraser one) fits very strongly in the pulp genre and there's all kinds of crazy supernatural stuff going on in that movie.
  11. Chance ran into his room quickly and grabbed his "suit", flung it over his shoulder and jumped into the hover-tram. As the tram sped through town, he stripped down to his underwear and pulled on the heavily modified blue space suit, fastening the last of the buckles just as they arrived at their destination. Jumping out of the hover-tram he smiled at the others, "Yeah, pretty sweet, huh?"
  12. And here is my entry. As mentioned before, he has amnesia which has heretofore been unable to learn about his past due to someone or something maintaining Cipher 6 on him. For the last few years he's been acting as an explorer/expedition leader for the Aeon Society. Name: John Smith Gender: Male Age: ? (appears mid-30s) Hair: Blonde Eyes: Blue Height: 6'1 Weight: 200 Allegiance: Aeon Society Virtue: Survivor Vice: Explorer Strength: 3 Brawl: 3 Dexterity: 3 Athletics: 3 Firearms: 2 Stamina: 5 (Hardy) Endurance: 1 Resistance: 3 Perception: 3 Awareness: 3 Navigation: 3 Intelligence: 2 Linguistics (English, French, German): 2 Survival: 3 Wits: 3 Appearance: 3 Manipulation: 1 Charisma: 2 Backgrounds Backing (Aeon Society): 2 Cipher: 6 (Enigma) Resources: 1 Knacks Man for All Seasons Optimized Metabolism Body of Bronze [4/5] Willpower: 8 Inspiration: 5 Intuitive: 3 Reflective: 2 Destructive: 0 Initiative: 9 Movement: Walk: 5, Run: 15, Sprint: 26
  13. Well I have a PM waiting with Heritage, but the basic idea is an extreme explorer...think arctic expeditions, desert pilgrimages, etc. He's a stalwart with Body of Bronze, Optimized Metabolism and Man for all Seasons. Still working out the numbers, but the catch is that he emerged from the arctic about a year after Hammersmith's incident with no idea of who he is or where he came from. He was frozen in ice (ala Captain America) in 'suspended animation' until the Hammersmith event triggered his inspiration and he woke up, with his body heat eventually melting enough of the ice to let him get free. He's been roaming the world ever since, joining the Aeon Society and trying to figure out who he is but to no avail. He has Cipher 6, but has no idea why, or what people don't want him to find out who he is.
