  1. Hey y’all I’m back! And that means so is Hyperactive! Without further ado! A plot hook: Did you know that Cameron Park in Waco is the second largest municipal park in the United States Of America? At least it was. Now it’s definitely the largest. The park is expanding. People are going missing. The animals in the Cameron Park Zoo are loose and seemingly altered. Well, Hyperactive is going to be on the case, but he needs help. Probably looking for one one or two other heroes!
  2. I've been mulling over (for over a literal year now) having Terrifica put together a team of sorts. Now I know, a proper team has to have players that'll commit to working with each other long term. So my solution is...let's not do that. Terrifica's an obsessive investigator. She's got more leads on crime than she can personally handle. Even looping in @Heritage's Miracle Girl (her protege and friend) isn't quite enough. So I say let her form a network of heroic contacts. A rotating cast of folks that handle street level crime. If we do it right, Terrifica herself doesn't have to be a presence in every thread. The only caveat is that your hero should be 18 years of age or older. Terrifica is not having that "private chat" with Headmistress Summers again. What do you say?
  3. We don't like hate groups. But they're people too. So when something goes wrong - say a mad scientist sics some radioactive super tigers on the public gathering - we, as heroes, have to save them. A small upstart group named Human Against Terminus ERuptionS, is holding a rally in the park to spread their vile ideology. They believe that the recent boom of heroes is due to another incoming invasion like in 1993. They preach that these Terminus born, are the key to it. And thus are trying to get them all rounded up and thrown back into their 'home'. Not everyone, sane people at least, believes them. But some people with powers are looking to thin the herd of the hate group and stop it before it grows any bigger. Thus our scenario. Who wants to do this?
  4. For centuries the Order of the Star Knights have strived to preserve peace, order and justice in the galaxy. When members have fallen in the line of duty, Mentor has always been able to find new recruits to refill the ranks. During the Incursion, the Order suffered the most significant amount of losses in its history, with nearly five hundred Star Knights perishing at the Battle of Lor-Van alone, sacrificing themselves to delay the Communion’s world killer in order for more Lor to be evacuated from the doomed world. As a result, following the end of the Incursion, the Order found itself greatly undermanned and efforts to recruit new Star Knights were stepped up. Even now the Order is not yet back to full strength and is always looking for worthy recruits. So, this is not a normal recruitment thread. Awhile ago Gizmo and I tried to see if there might be more interest in space based characters. The Star Knights represent an option closely tied to the setting. As it happens, I have a storyline in mind that is ideal for a group of Star Knight PCs. This would be in addition to opportunities for space adventures alongside other space characters (the Eclipse Crew; the Void Runners and the Praetorians). So, was wanting to see if there were any players (new or old) that had a character slot free and might be interested in making a Star Knight. (Ari has already expressed interest in the idea). One problem that I know might be of concern to some is that the Star Knight template in the sourcebook is rather expensive. TrollThumper (the only player with a PC Star Knight currently) worked up an alternative version of the template that is much more affordable. I have made an updated version of that that is down below (TT’s has not accounted for some house rules that came after he created Cavalier). At only 68 PP for the armor, there is still quite a bit of points left for other things. One thought I had was the new PC Star Knights could start out as trainees (Star Squires as Ari called them) and be PL 9/150 PP. If enough people were interested we could consider that route. Anyway, hoping there might be some interest in this, let me know! Star Knight Armor Device 17 (85 DP; Hard to Lose) [68 PP] Offensive Capabilities 20 PP Array (Power Feats: Accurate 2; Alternate Power 3) {25 DP} BP: Blast 10 {20/20 PP} AP: Enhanced Strength 12 + Super-Strength 3 + Strike 1 (Feats: Mighty) (energy sword) {20/20 PP} AP: Snare 10 {20/20 PP} AP: Nullify Technology 10 (Flaw: Full Action) {20/20 PP} Comprehend 2 (speak one language at a time and understand all; read all languages) {4 DP} Enhanced Feat 1 (Quick Change) {1 DP} Immunity 10 (life support; starvation and thirst) {10 DP} Flight 8 (2,500 mph) {16 DP} Protection 9 (Extras: Impervious 10) {19 DP} Super-Senses 2 (Communication Link [Mentor]; Radio; Low-light vision; Direction Sense) {4 DP} Super Movement (Space Travel) 3 ({6 DP}
  5. Practice Makes Perfect!

    Who has two thumbs and is willing to GM a thread? THIS GUY. Now, it's been a while since I've done it so I'm probably going to start small with one, maybe two characters at a time. I have a few story seeds in mind but if you have a suggestion or a particular character you want to put through the proverbial paces, feel free to let me know.
  6. Protect the Galaxy!

    So, have done these types of threads in the past, but figured it was time for another (given we have more new players that have joined since last time around). The Praetorians superteam is looking for some new members. The concept of the Praetorians is heavily influenced by DC's Legion of Superheroes and Marvel's Shi'ar Imperial Guard. More specifically, the original Praetorians were an Imperial Guard equivalent for a intergalactic empire more than 2,000 years ago. A number of them were placed in suspended animation by the Curator back then and were revived at the start of the Communion’s invasion during Incursion (a site event that happened a few years ago). Now that they no longer have an empire to serve, they have become more like the Legion of Superheroes. I put together the concept of the team as part of our expansion into space and as a way to provide easy access to a supergroup for newer players as well as more established ones. Because the concept is for a large supergroup that rarely operates all together at once, it allows for players to have a chance to be in threads with a number of other members. For those interested, there are generally two primary options for "new" characters: 1) Make another of the original Praetorians from 2,000 years ago that was placed in suspended animation. This provides an easy in and instant connection to existing members (particularly the other members from 2,000 years ago). 2) Make a new member from the present day that has joined the group post-Incursion. There are generally two different paths for this: (a) The new player encounters some Praetorians in a thread and gets invited to join after; (b) The new player is sent as a representative of some current galactic power to be on the team. The team current has a Star Knight and has had a representative from the Lor (that PC is currently inactive, so this is an open option). Some of the archtypes the team is current missing (and by no means is this the only types of PCs the team is looking for): Martial Artist Telepath (or other Psionic powersets) It is also somewhat light on energy projectors and other ranged attack powersets. So, just let me know here, by PM or in chat if anyone has any questions or is interested.
  7. Bethlehem Heights Psychiatric Hospital has served the mentally ill of the greater Columbia Basin with compassion and skill that has gone largely unrecognized outside of the professional medical world, thanks largely to being located in the conspiracy theory capital of the USA. For close to two and a half centuries after its founding 'Bedlam Heights' has been dogged with rumors of monstrous malpractice and evil government experiments, demonic influence and even psychic tampering with patients. Not helping matters is its use as a convenient place to shuffle inconvenient relatives, spouses or co-workers. No matter how diligently the hospital and its beleaguered legal staff uncover and expose fraudulent doctors, forged medical papers and suspicious court orders, public opinion remains firmly against the ill-funded and decaying institution, which hasn't been in the black since 1971. Now, the rumors appear to have come true. On New Year's Day, 2018, dawn revealed a dramatic shift to the staid Victorian manor on its high, lonely hill. The building is wrapped in spiked chains, the walls splattered with blood, an eerie red glow emanating from indoors and the faint sound of screams coming from somewhere inside. Its staff and patients are trapped inside, hopefully alive. Emerald City, Oregon's Mayor Amanda Talbot has given an open call to anyone who can help find out what's going on, why, if it can be stopped, how, and what it will cost them to do it. WHO: 2-3 PL8-12 PCs, of any sort. Preferably magical, but doesn't have to be. They will be joined by the Nightwatchman, a mysterious NPC whose mysteries are unknown. WHAT: Depends on how they approach the building and the interests of the players. WHERE: Emerald City, on the Oregon side of the Columbia delta, a bustling and colourful mini-metropolis majorly influenced by steady Asian immigration, whose burgeoning reputation as a center of technological development and application is well-earned. Like if a US Vancouver had some of Silicon Valley.
  8. There are worlds that aren't contacted for a reason. Showing up to certain planets at a specific time with equipment several TLs forward is like throwing a match on a powder keg. The planet Kolast is just one of these, as it is currently in the middle of one of the longest, darkest ages in this sector - like Warhammer Fantasy with all the "summary execution for heresy" of WH40K. None of the formal powers want to touch it, for fear of turning a long and bloody melee into a planetary firestorm. Unfortunately, it appears somebody beat them to the punch. A hero rises on the planet's southern continent, the very fist of the war god Olaya herself. Arrows shatter against him. Mountains fall beneath his fist. And his gaze will burn the unworthy. But how much of it is rumor? How much of it is a sudden magical manifestation? And how much of it is outside interference? The Praetorians - and, perhaps, other representatives of Lor-Van and interested powers - must touch down to find out what's happening, and ask themselves some hard questions. How long can you let the current order continue when people are suffering? Don't people have a right to decide their own destinies, even if it may lead to a self-destructive cycle? And is it colonialism if someone else messed it up first? (TL;DR - It's Hard to Be a God, only Daenerys Targaryen is working to burn everyone's stuff down, but there's a non-zero chance that she's really not supposed to be there. Who's up for away missions, trying to prevent anyone from realizing first contact has happened, and dealing with some weird moral choices?)
  9. Here: http://www.freedomplaybypost.com/topic/10081-bonfire-with-vanity/?tab=comments#comment-261850 Amir is letting Corinne have run of his Northbank beach fronted mansion. So party around the bonfire. Any Claremonter allowed. Maybe some FCU hero kids if they've heard. Thanksgiving weekend.
  10. So I want to do a series of one shots that will involve the heroes of Freedom City dealing with threats from other dimensions who won't all the time be dangerous. The reason they'll be from other dimensions visiting our own will allow me not to step on anyone's toes, and since I'am still learning about all the events this will give me some time and they won't be event level dangers like an incursion from the Terminus they may just be wacky tourists who need a good talking to. I have some really good ideas for a couple of them, I'am hoping some of you might be interested. Make Way for Prince Ali This first one is a Prince from another Dimension has come to Freedom city and taken over a whole city block in Down town and the block happens to be one of the busier thoroughfare's in freedom city which is resulting in a lot of traffic, and a lot of people coming to see the spectacle. Hope fully some Hero can convince the Prince he needs to either go or tone it down. I'am thinking 4-7 Heroes for all of them.
  11. Diaspora

    Now that I've grabbed your attention with a title that says nothing, let's get to the actual part: http://www.freedomplaybypost.com/topic/9834-see-the-universe-join-the-praetorians/ This was posted a while ago, and Diaspora is the result of that! Now, I'd hesitate to call this an event, I'm personally envisioning it as a series of threads, sometimes running parallel, sometimes individual. But, enough of vague talk about things that aren't entirely decided yet (can you tell just how AMAZING I am at this stuff? ) Diaspora: There has been an influx of people arriving in various systems, in a part of space that usually doesn't get any real attention. Communication is not always easy, but it's clear they're fleeing from something. And the systems they are arriving in are not handled to deal with the sudden explosion in population. Now it's up to the Praetorians and various people operating independently to figure out why this is happening, and how to prevent the situation from turning bad! This thread's here as a way to gauge interest, essentially. If you've got a character in space and feel like getting involved, tell me, because threads will happen and having more people around's a good thing! I will also upload various guidebook entires relating to all of this over the next few [Unit of time that seems feasible].
  12. OK recruiting for a set of three threads. They're slightly time displaced but for efficiency's sake I'm going to run them concurrently. The Overarching theme is Bombshells old enemies getting out of Blackstone and coming for her and hers. Thread the first: Sidekick Sideshow! Initial thought is Raina and some subset of her crew win tickets to an exclusive concert. But not all is as it appears, sinister schemes are afoot and our heroes must unravel the plot before it's too late! This could be changed up to be a different set of lower power Interceptor associates and doesn't have to be the full group. Thread the Second: The Main Event! With the reveal of Talyas old Foes being back in action and coming for her the Interceptors gather to get them before they strike. Holed up in an old AEGIS Facility a Direct assault would be foolhardy but is there time to wait?!? Doesn't have to be the FULL interceptors crew, though it can be scaled to whoever of the group is up for it. Thread the Third: But Meanwhile (IT'S A TRAP) While the Interceptors are facing off the Big Bads the Dojo is under threat! It's up to Ace Danger (and whatever other subset of Talyas old Guard friends or Not!Interceptors want in) to get the kids and non-combatants to safety. The World May never be the same! Ace, Maybe Dimitri, Klara, DragonFly, Ms. Americana? Dunno who all would be better for the evac and protect role than the assault in the main event. Semi Open recruitment for the first and third so long as there is a core connection to the Interceptors or a good connection to someone else in the thread that is. Main Event is Whoever Talya/Erik et al. bring. Gonna try to keep these moving as much as possible so probably will skip people's posts and move forward after 24 hours of no posting outside exceptional circumstances (and try to keep myself to that as well) Post below if you're interested with character and thread and how you think you'd tie in if not obvious.
  13. So for a new character, Professor Peculiar by our member Tipop, I am running thread involving a talk by some minor practitioners, or people who hang on to the supernatural side of things. It is here if ya'll are interested!
  14. Threads!

    Beach thread, with Corinne. And for Asad, a charity event for people impacted by hero and villain activity. Maybe legal fees, or when their insurance wont help. Also for other places besides local. And for heroes who don't necessarily have the resources necessary to deal with somethings, like legal battles. I should note if you have an idea, or want to be in a thread with my characters I am happy to help. Or run threads.
  15. Gonna Need a Bigger Boat!

    So! I just got Feeding Frenzy Approved, he's an atlantean wereshark who will be a Sophomore at Claremont in the fall! If y'all want a sneaky shark let me know! i do also have a plan for a thread with him that would be great to have maybe one or two heroes stopping drug dealers and pirates! So if you want to be a part of that just let me know!
  16. Are You A Bad Enough Sentient To...

    ...rescue the President!?! 3-5 players, preferably those with existing patriotic themes. Hyperactive is already in it - if that's okay with you, Kolo!
  17. The Dream Team Recruitment

    In an effort to create a team of super heroes for the defense of the United States, President J.T. Cahill has signed a bill to fund a team of heroes. The Dream Team. I'm trying to find other heroes willing to join up! The Team is mainly to take on super crime and preventing and mitigating natural disasters. So yeah I want to get a few threads up and running as kind of putting the team together! Anyone have any PC's and/or thread ideas this is a good place to put it. Disclaimer: Depending on how many people want to be a part of this, the team may or may not be able to have everyone on it.
  18. Worlds of Freedom!

    So obviously I'm up to posting again. And as some of y'all no doubt know this past year and a half life has loved sneaking up on me and taking my attention away from posting. But, I earnestly enjoy it. So, let's get to over indulging. Now, I've had a concept sitting in the back of my head. Gizmo may have the Brave and Bold/Marvel Team Up sthicks down to a science, but I want to run with and Elseworld's/What If series. The Else Ifs and What Ifs Subforum is woefully underutilized. That's right folks pitch me a solo or two character team up thread (bonus points if it involves one of my characters) that takes place on a parallel Earth! Indulge your Inner Superman Red Son. Take a visit to Earth: Paragons. Or even turn back the clock New Frontier style to a Freedomverse just entering the Golden Age with what would otherwise be modern heroes. Worlds of Freedom issue #1 is waiting to hit the presses! Now don't go tripping all over yourselves to play a thread in which you likely have to build a whole new version of your character. Potentially worth half post value at that. But, really I think this could be fun and bring life to the Else Ifs and What Else worlds!
  19. So after the political drama of the Lor elections, the Praetorian's are looking to explore the systems around there home on CoVic station and beyond. If you already have a Praetorian character you wish to use, or you want you new space character to join in the explorations let us know and we'll find you a place!
  20. They Live

    Suggested by Raveled, can't take any of the credit, but I'm gonna throw my twists in there. The dead are coming back to life. Not as zombies or undead, but fully to life. Those with Life Sense see that they're alive, yes, but are going through the motions of life. Basically responding to human interactions and doing nothing else when left alone. This is not just for characters with Life Sense, but maybe for people who has someone recently dead. Whether friend or foe. This'll probably bring up some tough questions! So, anyone interested?
  21. Kill It With Fire!

    Demonic rats and wererats and their demonic wererat king have somehow got a foothold in this realm. Why? They know. We don't. But this is taking place at Morley's. And Moira will not have rats of any kind invading, much less her own pub. @EviscerusNox and @Heritage have spots if they wish. Anyone else interested?
  22. Oni Troubles

    I'm looking for a couple of Emerald City PCs in the 8-10 range to help Blue Jay deal with a new crime wave in Emerald City. Magic will be involved. Any takers?
  23. So I'm looking for threads for Ditra Fifty-Five, my new space-based character. She is one of the Nameless, a race of cyborgs designed to overthrow the Lor Republic, before they went 'native' and more or less assimilated. They were exposed during the Incursion, and now are trying to find their place in a galaxy that doesn't trust them. Ditra ('Deet' to friends) is a PL9, and would probably do best in social or investigation type threads, though she does have a sweet built-in blaster.
  24. Zenith has landed.

    Zenith, the wayward daughter of Asad, is in. She wll be joining up Claremont shortly. I haven't nailed down the intro thread, but we can sort of flex and decide where to go, I am open. She is PL8 Matter Manipulator.
  25. Kidnapped!

    The title says it all. Leviathan, or rather his civilian identity, has run into some dangerously bad luck and can't escape it on his own without outing himself--perhaps not even then. Worse, he isn't alone: by the time his disappearance makes the morning news, police have learned that a handful of his fellow scientists at the Freedom Cross Institute are missing as well. The kidnapper is desperate, not entirely sane, and wants results that even a genius biologist will struggle to deliver, especially under such a tight schedule. To top it all off, Freedom City's heroes and law enforcement aren't the only parties looking for Tristan and his abductor--just the only ones planning to leave witnesses. This is the sequel to my other game, probably the second of three adventures, if all goes according to plan. Heritage has already claimed a slot to carry over Miracle Girl from the previous thread; I'm looking for 2-3 other characters around PL10, give or take. At least one detective-type would probably be helpful, obviously, but I'm willing to adjust the clues around whoever gets involved. Social PCs could make good use of Gather Info, and in a pinch, Miracle Girl's different vision modes should turn up a lot. Lastly, please keep in mind that this'll be my first non-solo game, so patience is appreciated, as is advice.
