Alright as a favor to potential new players I will compile all the pertinent information in regards to character creation. This will include the base IE rules and the CN variances.

Main Rules for Infinite Earth

Gadget Rules

CN World Information (Constantly Under Construction)

Cosmos Nova:

  • All rules for IE not overridden by the custom CN rules are still in play.

  • Q6 cannot be "unlocked" until One RL Year after the start of the game.
  • Novas start at Q5 with no taint and 50 base QP

  • Characters are built/advanced with the "In Theme/Out of Theme" NP/XP cost rules from CoQF (Out of Theme Powers/Mega-Attributes are allowed).
  • Only original or inactive characters allowed
    • (no active copies from other games or versions from other IE universes)
    • (Mech is cleared since his character was established before this rule was placed in effect, and is starting to look like an integral plot hook.)
  • No backgrounds over 5 at creation
  • No gadgets over 5 at creation
  • Aberrant Companion Heavily Regulated.
  • All core books and the three mega attribute books are fine.

  • 3 weeks later...
  • 2 weeks later...

These are the rules and setting information I pulled out of the OOC thread. Let's keep this updated going forward, ok? :P

Rules:

  • All rules can be altered with a vote of the active CN player base (to be active, you need to have posted once in the last two weeks, either IC or OOC post) of a majority +1
  • Q6 limit for the duration of the setting/story
  • No Q6 to start; it will be unlocked in March of 2013
  • No Eufiber to start
  • Novas start with Q5 (no taint) and base 50 Q-pool
  • 100 NP max to start (may start lower and buy up to 100 in game)
  • No Mastery at start
  • No Q Supremacy ever
  • Must stick to a power Theme – in-theme powers are built and advanced with in-theme costs (see In-Theme chart)
  • Only original/ or inactive characters allowed (no active copies from other games or versions from other IE universes [Mech is grandfathered])
  • No canon NPCs from the Aberrant books
  • No backgrounds over 5 at creation; PCs may develop one at 6 in-play
  • No starting Terats or Qi-Ming among the natives (essentially limiting the PCs)
  • No gadgets over 5 at creation (only 1 Gadget at 6 ever, this would be a defining item)
  • Aberrant compendium not allowed (mega att books o.k.) Any irregular power from another sources needs approval
  • Free enhancement with every odd Mega Att dot
  • Custom powers are allowed only through group collaboration
  • No PC Refugees
  • Free enhancement with every odd Mega Att dot (1,3,5)

Brief History:

In July 2005, a gate at Stonehenge opened into a low-quantum world. Superpowered people spilled out into the English countryside, many slipping away before the British government could rally. At the same time, a wave of energy ripped out through the world, causing the residents of the world to begin to show strange powers themselves.

The world governments began to respond as more and more super-humans appeared, both from the gate and from their own citizens. Additionally, there seemed to be two distinct kinds of super-humans; those the Refugees called ‘novas’ (the name has been adopted) and something else. In time, the something elses were called psiads, as their powers seemed telepathic in nature.

The numbers for each group remain low. It is estimated that there are between twenty and thirty Refugees, of which over half are Terat or Independent. Roughly a third of them are from Project Utopia’s Research and Development Division, while the remaining are from the Directive, the Aberrants or any of the other ‘canon’ groups. Of ‘natural’ novas, there are between eighty and a hundred – some countries are believed to be obfuscating their true nova census. Most novas are blips – they possess one useful power and have less than twenty NP. So far, over three thousand psiads have been discovered across the globe.

Stonehedge today is highly guarded and regulated by the EuroZone. There is a base built around the ancient structure and access is extremely limited.

The large number of psiads has created an NATO-funded and monitored group call the Psi-Corps. This group is even more regulated and restricted than the novas. The idea of touch-telepathy terrifies many governments and as such, they are closely watched. These so-called Psi-Cops do aid in investigations – when the country in question dares to call on them. (I'll post this section to the World-building thread too.)
