If you were serious, then I suppose I may have allowed my own bias to color the matter, I am somewhat uneasy about major religious characters as player characters in a game, though I don't have as much of a problem with connections to major religious figures, if that makes sense.

We're keeping Villians as NPCs. But if you want to go the extra mile and make a villian for everyone to use, well, we'll give ya a nice hug.

As for "gray" characters, keep it on the light side of gray.

 

As I said, she'd not be a psychopath.  The best way to explain it is True Neutral, leaning towards the good side of things.

I don't know what to think at this point. What does everyone else say?

6: The theme is 4-color, so identities have to be hidden for logical reasons, and the players are of generally a well functioning moral and ethical compass.

Does this idea violate this rule?

...how is this difficult?

 

The character is a good guy.  Just not the type to sit about and play patty-cake with people.  Batman is 4-color and he's far from ethical or moral.  Keep in mind the guy is clinically insane while he intentionally knocks out teeth and breaks bones unless the thugs give up the information he wants.  My character would be nothing close to that ruthless.

That... That I can live with, actually, Dave.

Here's why... That explained your angle. Thanks. ^_^

I'm sorry, I was honestly confused, and sorta reaching to understand what you were shooting for.

Oh, as I'm building a Mercenary... can it be a good angle that she hires out to protect humanitarian missions (Like Doctors Without Borders, etc) and playing bodyguard, or heading to warzones once she knows who is a side that ethically and morally needs help?

Sometimes even Pro Bono, because reasons.

So... is that a good theme to the concept? Think A-Team here.

Is there a single city we'll be playing out of or will people be scattered all over the world.  Also, are we using any of the M&M material, like cities or organizations or is this basically Aberrant (a scientific event makes people super) with M&M rules?

I'm thinking more real life, with real life organizations. We sort of get to shape the world as our characters would be part of the first real high-grade supers to be stomping around.

Alright, for shits and giggles this is the character I worked up.  Being female she will probably be the second character I introduce (so those of you who play only females can have first dibs) but it helps to have the PC ready.  In the next few months I can use the time to fine tune it.  I'll post up my Spider-Man concept later.  He's pretty much already done, since I've played him before, but with my new knowledge of the system I might be able to tweak him a bit better.  She'll be modeled loosely off of Black Cat, as soon as I find a pic I can beg Vivi to edit.

 

Critique.  I'm curious on ways I can improve it or change things that aren't accurate.

I like it! Very Iron Age sorta. But also lots of tacticool.

One question; does she have pouches?

Well, the belt is assumed to incorporate room for everything (a bit of a stretch, I know), but a lot of the equipment is small or collapsible or worn on her suit as part of the outfit but still considered part of the belt.  Like her collapsible batons would be worn one on each thigh in the spirit of Daredevil, but still technically considered utility belt, not part of her costume.  Factor in sliding things into boots, gloves, a small array of pouches on her belt, and you have the complete Batman package.

 

Ever notice how he has that massive cable gun... but it's nowhere on his belt?

Dave, I was making a joke. Most iron age supers were the epitome of "Tacticool". As in pouches everywhere. It was a riff on the style of Rob Liefeld. :P

I understand the whole "compactable gear" concept. ^_^

Working through some complications with my Spider-Person build... I might just use the older version, because he was actually 150PP.  Some his powers didn't make sense though.

Guys... say goodbye to Photon, and Hello to The Gale!

I'll just make a new background for her (to fit this world) and a couple of number tweaks, but the rest, as they say... is set. ^_^

 

Does CalTech have a Meteorology program? :D

I got a question. Once we're all organized, do we want to form up as a group? Or at the very least have something happen where we're together?

I can set up a proposal for a plot once I get The Gale set up.

I think my whole issue was just some building frustration with my process more than anything. Sucks as before I said I'd quit, I had a solution in The Gale.

I'll have something for Dawn and Long to chew on with this.

 

And Max, please sign up. :D I'll still look at characters too.

Also, I have updated the faq with the current Quintet that is the "Steering Committee" as it were in regards to who is in charge of the game.

Any one of these 5 you can refer your character to, and as per the rules your character must be reviewed by two members of this group for it to be accepted.
