  1. Startle is a standard action unless they take -5. Which if you did, is fine, and probably explains the low score. 15 with Sense Motive Also, Ash has Impervious Toughness 10, which means the leader has to have at least 10 in all for the hit to affect Ash. 28 on Toughness
  2. Freedom City. This stuff must go on every day. Ash thought normal villains in costumes, but this? This was a travesty. S/He balked at the attack from the pretend cop. Despite this being impersonating an officer, they could tack on assault and maybe disruption of an event. Ash was no lawyer, but s/he watched enough courtroom television. Whatever, it was over for words. Time for actions. People were ducking and hiding in the bathroom. That would have been Ash's excuse if s/he had time for the costume. This time though, s/he would have to deal with these bad actors personally. "I didn't assume you keystones would be dumb enough to do that," with a quick leap, s/he got right in front of the attacker, "fake **** aside, you couldn't rob a bank or something? I'm sure the hero would have been easier on you than I will."
  3. Ash had a thing for jazz, the soft smooth sound to the lively type that got them dancing. No dancing here though! S/He tapped along with the beat as s/he sipped their espresso with a bear face. S/He chatted up the barista, but it was getting far too busy. Maybe afterwards they would talk? S/He sat sat with bated - coffee smell - breath for the poetry to begin. And at first, s/he was content to here the stories. The trials and tribulations of life. The heartfelt pain and joy. It was delightful and thought provoking. S/He felt some of their feeling in their lives. One of the twins got up, Ash though s/he would chat one of them up. S/He didn't want to bother the one enjoying the entertainment, so s/he would go mingle with the other. Not that s/he would stalk them. Look at book in the same area. Make eye contact. See if they are interested in talking in the first place with an opening line. Take a breath and go! S/He took a step forward. But they were gone before s/he could even do that. Oh well, maybe later? The poetry started back up again. More lovely and unlovely words flowed. But what really caught Ash's eye was the 'police' entering the place. Sloppy. S/He wasn't a cop aficionado but s/he knew what a real one looked like. Getting up from her seat again, s/he made their way back to the book area, making with the cordial wordless nods to the 'cops'. If anything were to go down it would be on Ash's watch.
  4. Ash can take 10 and get 20 on Notice with Skill Mastery Ash is on their toes, 30 on Sense Motive!
  5. Ash had been scoping out Freedom City for about a month now. Getting to know the hero community from the bystander side. Not that s/he was any bystander, A bystander who could take care of their own! Still, Ash Parker wanted to blend into the hero side and normal side seemlessly. S/He had even taken a shine to a heroic name, The Ride, and got a fancy black leather costume and domino mask. Not that The Ride had superspeed, but they could run faster than a normal human, almost as fast as a car. S/He thought the name was appropriate! Riverside district was a lovely art community that Ash fell in love with the first time s/he heard about it. Sometime s/he would visit it even if s/he wasn't scoping out the territory for heroic reasons. And s/he was here this evening for a purely selfish reason. Just to hang out with the community. Marsha's was one of the many places in Riverside s/he enjoyed. S/He never read much with their reader app on their phone, but the information in these books was priceless. So s/he would buy a few and sit them on the coffee table at home and promise to read them one day. To be fair s/he had cracked open a two or three of the ten so far. And here s/he was buying two more. Tonight was different though. There was an event going on at Marsha's. Poetry night. Ash was no creative mastermind, but s/he enjoyed listening to the people who could put righteous thunder or tears into words. S/He was wearing something casual, but presentable, better than the jeans and tshirt s/he wore daily. A black lace dress, sleeveless and ankle length. A violet silk waistband. Their hair down and curled. Dark violet lipstick to match the waistband. But opposed to all this finery, s/he carried a large black knapsack, in one compartment was their normal things. But in the other was what s/he brought every time s/he came to Freedom City. Their costume. Ash never really wanted to use it out of the blue. S/He could take care of their own without it, such was the life of a person open with their powers, even if they wanted to have two identities. Over to the coffee bar s/he went to get a dose of bean for the night and then to find a table. It was hard to find one with everyone finding a seat. But s/he found an empty one next two a pair of twin persons. S/He wouldn't be rude and interrupt their conversation, but s/he was always intrigued by twins. How they had an almost psychic connection. This was not the case for Riley and Riley, but she was unawares.
  6. The genderfluid complication is Prejudice. Some people don't accept that people arent one gender or no gender at all. If their small minds could comprehend it it wouldn't be a problem. Welcome to my day to day life.
  7. Did both things you said. I don't have Ultimate Power, so I only know of Array from builds and what people tell me. Hopefully it's right!
  8. The Ride Power Level: 10 (150/152PP) Unspent Power Points: 2 Trade-Offs: None In Brief: A mutant who is equally tough and flexible. Catchphrase: "Get ready for The Ride!" Theme: Alternate Identity: Ash Parker (Secret) Birthplace: Springville, Alabama Residence: Lewes, Delaware Base of Operations: Freedom City, New Jersey Occupation: Delivery Affiliations: Superheroes Family: Tiny, owner (is a cat). Martin Parker, father. Martha Parker, mother. Description: Age: 21 (DoB: 1996, February 14) Apparent Age: early twenties Gender: Fluid (he/him, she/her, they/them if you don't want to ask) Ethnicity: Half African-American, Half Caucasian Height: 5'6" Weight: 130 pounds Eyes: Purple Hair: Black Ash is very androgynous, with delicate features making them look much more softer than s/he is. Ash wears loose fit carpenter jeans and tshirts two sizes too large for them. The Ride wears a black leather body suit and a domino mask. History: Ash is an anomaly. One born with superpowers in their genetics. Throughout childhood s/he would see it in small amounts. Being 'naturally' athletic and acrobatic. S/He played sports (soccer and baseball), but what s/he really loved was dance. The freedom of movement encapsulated what s/he would grow into. Ash first encountered their full powers a few years ago, just after high school. A group of bigots wanted to know what Ash's 'real' gender was and attacked. The bigots tackled them down and thought they would remove Ash's pants. A surge of adrenaline hit Ash. S/He remembers smashing and dodging through the bigots until the group was knocked out. Ash had superpowers, but didn't know why or how it happened. S/He told their mother and father about the incident and they told them that there was a bigger world out there. S/He agreed. Taking the name X at first, s/he moved just out of town and designed a costume. For a few months they acted as a nightly guardian. S/He would take out muggers and thieves and smaller crimes. During the day, s/he would work temporary jobs. When Ash felt ready, s/he packed up their things and left their small town to go up north towards Freedom City. S/He Didn't go all the way up, settling in Delaware, right across the way from Freedom City. With this new life, double life even. In Lewes, s/he was Ash Parker. In Freedom City, s/he would be The Ride. Personality & Motivation: Ash is a sensual person. S/He enjoys the finer things in life. Good music, good food and drink. S/He loves to dance. It's like their favorite pastime. While Ash is particularly open about using their powers out of costume, s/he does not associate their heroic life with their 'normal' life. Ash works as delivery person in their out of costume persona because s/he's pretty fast. In costume, their priority is to protect innocents. Freedom City is a big step up, so s/he has to step up their game! Powers & Tactics: The Ride is fast and flexible, but also hits like a MAC truck, and could probably take a hit from said truck! The Ride uses their powers to knock out criminals with grace and power at the same time. Power Descriptions: Well, you really can't describe it other than Runs Fast with Speed. Jumps High with Leaping. Lifts Heavy Things and Hits Hard with Enhanced Strength and Super-Strength. Really Hard to Damage with Enhanced Constitution and Impervious Toughness. Ash and The Ride have no manifestations of their powers. Complications: Genderfluid: Ash does not feel comfortable in one gender. S/He may identify as female, male, both, or neither. May confuse or irritate bigots who believe elsewise. Human, Take Care Of Me: Ash has a cat named Tiny. No Relationships: Ash believes that s/he can't do that sort of thing in their normal life. Too many people aiming for the big target. It's why s/he's here now, to protect her parents. Two Lives: On top of having a secret identity, Ash lives a double life. S/He does not hide her powers in her normal persona. Everyone knows Ash Parker is not a superhero though! Abilities: 4 + 10 + 4 + 0 + 4 + 8 = 30PP Strength: 14/30 (+2/+10) Dexterity: 20 (+5) Constitution: 14/30 (+2/+10) Intelligence: 10 (+0) Wisdom: 14 (+2) Charisma: 18 (+4) Combat: 10 + 10 = 20PP Initiative: +5 Attack: +10 Melee, +5 Ranged Defense: +10 (+5 Base, +5 Dodge Focus), +3 Flat-Footed Grapple: +24 Knockback: -10 Saving Throws: 0 + 5 + 6 = 11PP Toughness: +10 (+2/+10 Con, +0) Fortitude: +10 (+2/+10 Con, +0) Reflex: +10 (+5 Dex, +5) Will: +8 (+2 Wis, +6) Skills: 68R = 17PP Acrobatics 15 (+20) Bluff 4 (+8,+12 Attractive) Diplomacy 4 (+8, +12 Attractive) Gather Information 8 (+12) Knowledge (current events) 6 (+6) Knowledge (popular culture) 6 (+6) Language 1 (English [native], Japanese) Notice 8 (+10) Perform (dance) 8 (+12) Sense Motive 8 (+10) Feats: 21PP Accurate Attack Acrobatic Bluff Attack Focus (melee) 5 Attractive Challenge - Improved Acrobatic Bluff Dodge Focus 5 Evasion Improved Trick Move-by Action Power Attack Skill Mastery (Acrobatics, Gather Information, Notice, Perform (dance)) Takedown Attack Uncanny Dodge (Auditory) Powers: 16 + 16 + 10 + 9 = 51PP (all powers are genetic and mutation descriptor) Enhanced Consitution 16 [16PP] Enhanced Strength 16 [16PP] Impervious Toughness 10 [10PP] Array 4 (8PP array, Alternate Power 1) [9PP] BP: Super-Strength 4 {8/8 PP} AP: Leaping 4 (x25; Running Long Jump 500 feet, Standing Long Jump 250 feet, High (Vertical) Jump 125 feet) {4/8PP} + Speed 4 (100MPH, 1000 feet per round) {4/8PP} DC Block ATTACK RANGE SAVE EFFECT Unarmed Touch DC 25 Toughness Damage Totals: Abilities (30) + Combat (20) + Saving Throws (11) + Skills (17) + Feats (21) + Powers (51) - Drawbacks (0) = 150/152 Power Points
  9. Thank you for your help, Supercape!
  10. Hello! I've been talking in Discord and decided to do a super acrobat. Supercape said they'd do a build and needed a place to put it. Here we go.
