  1. Put Displacer on objective 2, please, and Curator on objective 1.
  2. Feel free to find a place for both The Curator and Displacer to get a piece of the action (no need for them to be together, of course). Wouldn't want to miss this!
  3. Devin flinched a little at the doctor's questions, fearing the disapproval that an honest answer might evoke. Still, knowing how it happened might help Dr. A fix it, so Devin hesitantly explained. "Well, I first noticed it after a fight I got into last week. Guy in a silly-looking steel suit and green cloak tried to rob a bank, so I punched him. It was funny, though, the guy kept telling everyone they were doomed." He waggled his hands for emphasis, "DOOOOMED, you know, that sort of thing."
  4. Hey guys. Displacer's gonna take 10 on stealth (total of 13) and notice (total of 15) to eavesdrop on the conversation that's been going on in the back room.
  5. Devin Splice was about to order a pizza when the radio in his cybernetic arm buzzed. He stepped out of Little Tony's Pizzeria in the West End and listened to the recorded message from Dr. Archeville. Shaking his head, he opened his cell phone and called the girl he was supposed to be on a date with. "Hey Cassandra," "No, Tony's was open, it's just..." "Yes, I know I promised you awesome pizza..." "Look, we're just going to have to do this again next week, okay? Dr. Archeville needs me to -" *click* I'm never going to get a girlfriend at this rate. He sighed, stashed his phone, and focused his mind on the location indicated by the message. An instant later, he was standing on the sidewalk outside a run-down pawn shop in the Greenbank district. Through the dirty windows, he could just see the backs of the Doktor and two other men as they entered a back room and closed the door. Doc wants backup, but if he's walking into a trap, it won't do him any good if I get pulled in too. Devin considered a moment, then teleported inside, just inches away from the closed door, and leaned in to see if he could hear what was going on.
  6. Okay, sorry for the confusion. It IS bad-guys turn now. GM post to come soon. Nice battle music, Aiko.
  7. The Curator burst out from behind the employee's only door he had been hiding behind. "Stop, thieves!" he shouted, with an odd mixture of bravado and nervousness. His modern grey business suit clashed anachronistically with the ancient Greek shield and shining European longsword he wielded. The tiny wings on his sandals fluttered rapidly as he flew toward the female thief, maneuvering around the frozen people. Floating a few feet off the ground, he struck her with a smart blow to the top of the head, but his sword seemed to hit more like a blunt object than a blade.
  8. The Curator takes a swing at the woman (Desperarae) with his sword - 1d20+8 = 28 Well, will you look at that - a crit on his first ever attack roll. So it's going to be DC 24 toughness save for her... 1d20+6 = 21 Drat. She only takes a bruise. IC post coming soon, then Aiko and Ironclad are up.
  9. I'm working on a villain idea - an ugly person who goes around stealing beauty and adding it to their own. A key part of this is dealing with the Transfer power, to represent stealing beauty. I'd like to rework it from the ground up as what it really is - Linked Drain and Boost. Here's my first attempt: "Steal Beauty" - Drain 10 (one trait - Charisma, Extras: Alternate Save (Will, +0), Feats: Slow Fade x 4 (1 hour)) Linked (+0) to Boost 20 (one trait - Charisma, Flaws: Personal, Feats: Slow Fade x 4 (1 hour)) Total cost: 28 pp I'd be interested in adding something to the boost along the lines of Flaw: only boosts as many points as were drained, combined with an Extra: stacks with itself, capped by power rank. EDIT: After reading Transfer more carefully, I think it actually does exactly what I just described above, and you only have to pay for Slow Fade once that way, which is cheaper. /EDIT The idea would be that this character's natural charisma score is something like 5 or maybe even less, but by draining enough people/points, they can get it into the 20's or 30's. Any other suggestions or thoughts are appreciated, both for powers and concept. The slow fade, I know, may be a bit much, so I can tweak that. I've also thought of this character using Ritualist or some such to attempt longer-term transfers for plot purposes (i.e. Ritual up a version of the power with stupidly high ranks of Slow Fade). ---------------------------------------- Build so far.

  10. Devin caught sight of the Doctor and walked over to him, smiling at his amusing accent. "Hey, Doc, how's it going'?" He held up his robotic left hand and quickly flicked his index finger up and down a few times, eliciting a horrible metallic scraping sound. "I think maybe there's something wrong with the finger," he said in an understated voice, "but other than that, yeah, no problems. Funny, though, it only does it when moving fast enough."
  11. Lone_star, your IC post indicates you're attacking Super Thug, but your OOC post says you're attacking the woman. Which is it?
  12. The Curator 17 points to spend and a PL increase... so much to do! First off, 7 points go to buying another rank of Gadgets, giving me a total of 10pp to throw around on magical trinkets (woo!) Drop one rank of Attack Focus (melee) and add one rank of Dodge Focus (no PP change). Edit my Connected feat to have (archeologists and art dealers) inside the parenthesis instead of the gibberish that's there now. The Sword of Mercy will gain 1 rank of Strike, with the Penetration Extra, a second rank of Accurate, and the Affects Incorporeal feat (it is magic, after all). This costs me 4pp. Increase the suit's rank of Impervious Protection by 1, costing me 2pp. Add to my morph power "Extra: Duration (continuous)" costing me 1pp. Increase will save by 1, costing me 1pp. Total PP spent: 15 Leaving me 2 extra that I think I'll save up for now. new versions of lines that have been indirectly affected: Attack: +3 base, +5 melee, +9 sword Grapple: +5 Defense: +9 (+4 base +5 other), +2 flat-footed Toughness: +5 (+3 con, +2 Magic Suit) Sword damage DC is now 20 Stun DC is now 15 Done by Sandman XI
  13. "Yeah, sure, that's cool, whatever," Devin said, trying to play off the rejection as no big deal. "Anyway, I'll, uh, see you around school, then. I gotta go meet with the Doc now." Idiot, he thought, ruing his perpetual bad luck with women, shouldn't have pushed it so fast. He'd hoped to meet some nice super-powered girls at Claremont, but so far none had seemed interested in him. Whatever. I've got stuff to do right now anyway. Devin turned to speak with the receptionist, gave her his name, and asked if Dr. Archeville was ready to see him.
  14. Okay, cool. Could someone send me a PM when you're ready for me to join in? I'll try to watch the thread in the meantime and catch up on what's been happening.
  15. "A worthy cause, my friend," Edward said with feeling. As they arrived back to the Museum's front entrance, Edward paused to shake the angel's hand. "It was good to meet you, Heyzel. I'll stop by that church some day, but remember, you're welcome here at my museum any time." As they parted, Edward stopped to think for a moment before heading back to his office. It's time I tried some heroics outside my museum, he decided, Thank you for opening my eyes to that.
