  1. Sorry. That was unclear. I think the rule as written reads as "1/3 of your total attack and defense has to come from Base Attack and Defense", not "You have to have a minimum 1/3 of your PL in base attack and base defense" How does that interact with trade offs? 1/3 of PL10 is 3. but 1/3 of Tradeoff 5 is 2 (1.6 rounded up). The rule as written mentions feats and BAB and BDB? How does that work with enhanced BAB and BDB for powers? Thanks for reminding me on DIehard. No it's his wisdom, he only has an 18 in Int. As to the point on Inventor, he is a jack of all trades, so he can make untrained craft checks. He has the capacity for invention, but he hasn't explored it yet. I was going to play with that through character growth. Even at his current level, he can make some pretty good "basic" inventions like cell phones and things about half of the time. Absolutely. Thanks so much. If it's a template, I'm happy to apply it if you point me in the right direction.
  2. I edited this to be the new character. Take a look.
  3. I guess the idea was to give him "continuous equipment" so that he had paid for anything he was mechanically benefiting from. If you're saying I don't need it, I can spend those points on bringing him up to cap, however I like the idea that he's a little more street level than most of the people with "showier powers". He gets things done by having the right tool in the backline, and the story threads he's in are going to power him up by giving him access to more and more stuff. As for undercapped, I was leaving slack for guns and bombs, and things he's likely to pick up in the course of his adventuring.
  4. Cortex Power Level: 10 (150/150) Trade-Offs: ; -5 Defense +5 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: Brain in a Jar - Telekinesis as a side-effect Residence: A Jar Base of Operations: Still a Jar Theme: Catchphrase: Quite. Alternate Identity: Identity: Axon Cerveau Birthplace: Louisiana Occupation: None Affiliations: Family: Father: Monsieur Cerveau (Super Villain Mad Scientist and Inventor and [Minor] Mentalist – Location Unknown), Mother: Unknown. Description: Age: 16 Apparent Age: Only an experienced neurosurgeon can tell. Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 2” Weight: 16 lbs Eyes: none Hair: none Power Descriptions: Multicolored swirls of telekinetic force coalescing in beautiful fractal bands. History: Axon grew up never knowing his parents. Raised by nannies and boarding schools, until he was summoned on his 13th birthday to “a lair” (And who has a lair anyway?) to reclaim his family legacy. A legacy of mad science and super-villainy. A legacy he wanted no part of. But he accompanied his father on his heists, never sure if it was out of fear or curiosity. He even created a few rudimentary devices. But then there was the accident. A hot screaming agony where his were not the only screams. And then darkness. The endless monotony of it. How long he spent in that state, alone in the dark with only his thoughts. Calendars said it was only a few months, but that can’t possibly be right. He could swear it was years. Years, spent clawing back to interaction. To a form of sight. His father studied, poked, prodded, and tested him. Helped him to grow his new gifts. Wanted him to join him again. Axon would do anything to escape the boredom. But his new found powers connected him to the victims, he could feel their heartbeats, their pulses, their terror. Axon renounced his father, renounced villainy, and legacy, and is trying to forge his own path. Claremont is another boarding school, yes, but this one will be different. Personality & Motivation: Axon’s personality is in flux. He was a spoiled kid who never had the love of his parents, and never knew his mother. He was raised by hired hands. Then manipulated by his brilliant father. He spent months recovering from the total loss of his body, and then the thrill of being able to do things beyond the kin of mortal man. He isn’t stable, entirely. But he has had a lot of time alone with his own thoughts, and he trusts that he’ll settle down. One thing he doesn’t want is to ever cause fear again. Powers & Tactics: Axon is nervous about causing direct damage to people. He has in the past, but he doesn’t care for it. He creates force constructs and rips things from people’s grasp. He prefers non-violent methods of containment. His BrainSphere has no method of propulsion built into it. He takes great joy in flying around like a giant glass ping-pong ball. The BrainSphere does have a network of sensors that replicate many basic sensors, and turn his brain signals into verbal (speakerphone) communication. Complications: Not a Normal Teenager: Axon might be able to throw a car with his mind, but he can’t really drive it. Genetics isn’t Destiny: His father might have been a mad scientist, but that doesn’t mean Axon has to, even if the odd doomsday device does pop into his head at the most inconvenient of times. Survivor’s Guilt: Axon became a brain in a jar when his father saved him from an explosion that killed hundreds, an explosion that his father caused. It’s when he first the truth of what his father was, and that he and he alone survived. The guilt hasn’t begun to untangle. There’s No Going Back: Whatever perpetuating nutrient bath he’s been stored in, his brain has grown. He’s the largest human brain on record. Even if a body could be cloned or regenerated, he’d never fit. Boredom is a form of Torture: A brain is designed for multi-channel input. Axon will do anything not to be so endlessly, ceaselessly bored.

  17. Seth had flown around for a few seconds mostly aimlessly.... But knowing that there could quite possible be other people from his time-stream polluting the past, Seth knew he had to doooo something. He adjusted "his flight plan" and sailed towards Freedom Hall, or rather, where he knew Freedom Hall to be at best possible speed. He hoped it was there.

    Circus Freaks

    Gael the Amazing Body-Man started his day like any-other. He took a brief bath, admired his horrible visage in the mirror, put on his loin-cloth and made his way to his tent. That gave him just enough time to get comfortable, and set the stage for his performance of "weird and miraculous marvels". The first couple of shows went fairly well, the audience hooting and hollering at his extra arm, etc... He varied his extra limbs from time to time, just to alter the tedium of performing the same show for the same slack-jawed adults. But he got paid. Which put food in his belly. He was never going to leave. Since he had run away from his parents, he had only had two homes. One was in the sewers, scrounging along side rats and other carrion. And then this one. He was barely over a decade old, but it seemed to him that he had a pretty sweet deal here. And the other freaks treated him with respect. Unlike everyone else. Unlike his bastard parents.
