  1. Micah narrowed his eyes in thought, but then nodded. "Yeah. Yeah! That is actually really close to what I'm thinking. Powered Heelys. I'm sure we could figure out something to provide the power..." He turned to the other member of the table as Nick and Claude wandered off. "So, uh, Mia. Is your laptop working better now? I saw you kind of fiddling with it while Claude and I brainstormed. Did you have any thoughts on the powered shoes?" Micah heard Leroy's commotion and turned. He grimaced in disgust as the boy mashed a disgusting sandwich and that strange crystal together. "What in the..."
  2. Micah nodded as Ben explained the whole "weird blood" thing. His eyes widened comically at the other teenager's offer to cut himself. "NO! I mean. Um" He looked embarrassed. "No. I believe you. You don't have to hurt yourself to prove it, Ben. I believe you." "I mean, with all the stories we hear on the news, I figure most of the labs around town have secret, freaky stuff. Us hero-types end up either getting powers from it, fighting it, or both, eventually." Micah huffed, but with a smile on his face. "If you think he's coming around again, I need to practice more. Need to see how he lights getting sun like noon in Arizone while I shove a few dozen bolts of lightning where the sun doesn't shine."
  3. Now, for Judex. Goal is to raise him to PL9 caps, let's see what we can do...We'll try to get him up 1PL's worth of caps first. 19PP to use. 2PP to raise his base Dexterity to 12 (+1), (Reflex Save, Acrobatics, Escape Artist, and Stealth raised by 1) 2PP to raise his Base Attack by 1 (to +6, +11 Melee; Grapple bonus raised to 15) 2PP to raise his Base Defense by 1 (to +6, +11 Dodge Focus) 1PP to raise Will Save base to +3 bonus, for a total +7 save 2PP to raise Enhanced Constitution to 8 (Toughness Save and Fort Save each raised by 1) 2PP to raise Enhanced Strength to 10 (Damage DC raised by 1, Grapple bonus raised to 16, Climb raised by 1) 2PP to raise the rank of his Fear of the Lord Array to 8, for a DC 18 will save (and the rank of the array raises to 4). Total expenditure of 13 of 19PP. I'm going to leave this update at that, then. That's a solid PL8 for his Caps. His Attack, Damage, Defense, and Toughness, along with all 3 Exotics, all go up by 1. His Array/Power goes up by 1 as well.

  5. Let's see, Thunderbird needs some updates, but not enough to sit down and rewrite his sheet...

  7. I'd like him to give me a DC 17 Will Save vs Emotion Control: Fear. And a 24 to Intimidate on top of that.
  8. Judex's grip tightened, and he put his mouth even closer to the man's ears. "The police may be mangy curs, but a pack of curs will still take down a lone, injured wolf. Tell me, how likely would you be to walk, with all your trappings gone, your crimes strapped to your chest? Hm? Even these dogs couldn't ignore that." He began to twist the man's body. Painful, but not injuring, not yet. "Hm. Risky risky risky. Judgement dodged, perhaps? Perhaps the wolfhounds take care of the wolf?" His eyes drifted to Strix, and then toward the gangers again, the message clear. Strix himself might feel...something...in the air, even as the strange man's voice...shifted. "Kill you? Oh nonono, no, that's not our way my friend. Our fine feathered friend, he might drink a few drops. Our curious friend making their way down might have some deep, deep questions for you. Me, little old me me me? Why, I'd just be making sure the wolf can't ever, ever, even think about being in charge of people who try to harm children." Even as something came over the man, he felt one of Judex's hands at his throat. And the man heard....music, and the voices of children. "I do not take kindly to you sinners going after the little children, nonono. It makes me so angry, you see. So! Will you be a good little wolf, who knows when he's been beaten? When triumph has turned to loss? Or will you struggle against the trap you've found yourself in.
  9. Micah shrugged at Mia's compliment. "I mean, sure. Part of it is just my cuss stubbornness not wanting to leave things undone or half-finished." At the mention of a fan, he leaned over just a bit. "What about the wires? Like, the ones between the fan and the rest of the computer? If it's just the fan, and everything else works consistent, you've isolated the problem to wherever things 'branch' off. Or something controlling the fan?" Micah took out a notebook and pen and started scratching down notes and a couple of rough sketches. "Hm. So, a Segway's all about having it doing the moving for you. Like, you just lean. It's doing 99.9% of the work, right? And I think what I was trying to do with the first round of this thing was the same thing. But...what if it was more like a 50/50 split? or maybe 80/20? Something that just kind of gives more oomph? Like the friction-less boots, but less about removing resistance and more about adding impulse?"
  10. Micah may have been a mild kid, but he was generally unflappable. But Davyd turning into that was a bit more than even he could just shrug off. "Okay, yeah, I probably didn't really give you enough credit. Though in my defense, this isn't wildly outside of "shapeshifting"?" Micah frowned a bit. "Okay, but you just said that's your power. Which is awesome, by the way. I'm just more saying that It's easy to write that but hard to put into practice. I...I guess I can't properly put my thoughts together on this, not yet? I'm just a teenager, man. Like, I hear what you're saying, but for people in general I don't necessarily agree. You're kind of an exception." Micah's expression was not upset, just frustrated at his difficulties fully forming and articulating his thoughts. And also contemplation and introspection, something that looked natural for him. Micah tapped his chin in thought at the question. "I think you mentioned the succubus thing. Seemed like a dang fool idea from folks who've read all the wrong books." He smiled at the mention of the Krampus. "He was a big sucker, but we took him down!"
  11. The skinny preacher boy looked annoyed now. "I'm not calling for help so clearly I at least somewhat believe you. But standing around, growling and posturing, doesn't help. I know something's up but for all I know he could be legitimately sick. What do you both know? Why are, are...supers...involved in this?" This was Bedlam. You didn't say "hero" unless you were pretty darn sure.
  12. FYI Shofet, I think right now we've got Mia, Claude, and Micah at one table, and then Judy, Ashley, and (temporarily) Nick at a different table, possibly with 1-2 more. Meanwhile, I think Leroy, Heroditus, Benny, and OctoDude are at a third table, with the latter showing us his general awesomeness form the ceiling?

  14. Micah gave nick a quick smile and returned the fistbump. His rendition of the greeting might lack the sheer enthusiasm of his peers, but considering the comparisons that was only natural. He blinked at the offer to join Nick and Claude, then scratched his chin in thought for just a moment. Then he nodded, speaking quietly but with clear lip movements toward Nick. "Sure." Micah stood and walked over to where Claude was sitting and Nick had gestured. He missed perhaps a half-step at Nick going over to Judy and Ashley, but made no comment to anyone about it. Micah smiled as he sat down. "That's kind of a good question. I guess....short term? Last year I made some primitive...let's call them "Segway Skates" for my friend Danica. Her powers give her some advantages, but the downside is she moves pretty slow on her own. She can still think at everyone else's speed, though, so it's kind of a bummer. She uses a Segway to get around outside and stuff, but that's not always enough or a good fit. I tried to make her these skate-things that she could use to get around inside buildings or in other places that her regular Segway didn't work. I only sort of succeeded. I'd like to try making something better for her. Shoot, depending on how successful we are, maybe it could be, I dunno, a new assistance device?" He let that sink in for a moment before continuing. "Longer-term this year, I'd like to do something with an automobile or motorcycle design. I prefer the bike a bit but either one works. Something more than just putting together a kit, maybe?"
  15. Theo blinked and tilted his head, almost canine in his curiosity. Then his eyes narrowed as he looked between the two women who spoke as one. "Who are you? And what, exactly, do you mean, what happened to him?" He stood straighter, his slight frame somehow acting like it filled more space than it actually did. He frowned deeply and reached up to lift his glasses away from his face. He used the opening to rub the bridge of his nose. "Why are you here, now, like this? If you're planning to hurt him, I'm warning you how bad of an idea that is."
