  1. Who: Three PCs, between PL10-12 Where: Hunter Museum of Natural History What: Robot Dinosaurs! I'm looking for 3 PCs to find themselves in trouble dealing with rampaging animatronic dinosaurs at a museum. Priority will go to newer players overall.
  2. Player Name: Thunder King Character Name: Specimen Power Level: 10 (150/150) Trade-Offs: -5 Atk/+5 Dam, -5 Def/+5 Tou Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: Cobbled together teenage superhero Alternate Identity: Adam Lanchester Identity: Secret Birthplace: In a lab somewhere Occupation: Student Affiliations: None Family: Father Colin, Valerie Description: Age: 16 (DOB unknown, registered birthday is April 3rd, 2002) Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 6'6" Weight: 330 lbs Eyes: Yellow (brown with contacts) Hair: None/Black (When wearing wigs) At a glance, Adam looks like an exceptionally tall and muscular teenager. However, on closer examination the initial impression dissolves. His skin is uneven and textured differently on different parts of his body, his eyes are an unnatural color and light up like a cat's in the dark, and his skin tone has a slightly grayish tinge. From the neck up, he looks normal enough, but from the neck down is a network of surgical scars. When in public, Adam has several cosmetics to discourage stares and his own discomfort. A wig and prosthetic eyebrows to hide that he has no hair anywhere and contact lenses to hide his striking eyes. In costume, however, he foregoes his cosmetics. His costume consists of a gray and dark green sleeveless top with a pair of gray and dark green patterned pants and combat boots. He has a gray jacket that he occasionally wears over his costume because he prefers to have pockets. Power Descriptions: Specimen posseses superhuman strength and durability as well as some degree of superhuman speed. History: In 2008, a raid was performed by AEGIS on a remote laboratory operated by a reclusive scientist by the name of Augustus Clarke. They found Dr. Clarke dead and his lab in shambles, but also a small child in suspended animation. Dr. Clarke's files indicated that the child was intended to serve as a replacement body using the stolen genetics of dozens of superhumans. The body had severe deformities that would have prevented it from functioning on a basic level, so Dr. Clarke created cloned tissues and surgically added or replaced the missing or deformed tissues. It was believed that Dr. Clarke intended to contact a powerful psychic metahuman to implant his mind into the body once it was matured, and that he was researching artificial aging methods to accelerate the replacement's growth. When they unthawed the body, they came to the alarming realization. He was alive. Despite all evidence in the notes to the contrary. A husband and wife team were brought on to study the child. Colin and Valerie Lanchester. Colin was a child psychologist and Valerie was an expert on metahuman biology. The two of them resolved to not just study the child, but raise him, naming him Adam. Adam was raised for the first few years in laboratory conditions. His superhuman strength was discovered quite quickly and studied extensively. They discovered that he didn't suffer from many of the same problems as other feral children, and developed at an accelerated rate until he was comparable to other children his age. He received a fairly typical education, and, like many kids, fell in love with the idea of superheroes, and their history. He decided at an early age that he would become one. The decision to put him in Claremont was not an easy one, and Adam was introduced to other children slowly. He was thoroughly examined, his body and mind, and determined to be perfectly safe to introduce to the frequently chaotic and strange realm of other teenagers. Personality & Motivation: Adam is generally quiet, withdrawn and philosophical. He has a driving question as to the purpose of his life. He knows why he was made, he doesn't understand why he exists. He's determined that if he can't find an answer to that question, he'll make one. However, he's used to having to hold back, keep his strength under wraps. He's motivated to see the world and experience it, and to use his powers for good. Powers & Tactics: Specimen is strong and incredibly durable, more afraid of hurting others than being hurt himself. He wades into fights and trusts his durability to keep him on his feet. Complications: Power Loss; Electricity: Effects with the electricity descriptor could potentially disrupt his super-strength and/or enhanced strength. Don't Get Close: Some people might react negatively to seeing Adam due to his unusual appearance. World of Glass: Adam has a tendency to hold back in fights, and may do so to his detriment, and this may be a problem against foes that are tougher than they look. Naive: Adam is smart, well-educated and insightful, but he still doesn't know that much about the world.

  3. I'm going to say the one who failed the save. She'd notice if the attack had an effect, right?
  4. I'm going to be heading out for more training this week, I should have posted this earlier, but I'll be gone from Monday through Wednesday, probably into Wednesday evening.
  5. Okay, so, Ultimate Effort, burning an HP to roll a 20. She still fails by 3, so she's only bruised. As for the fort save; 26 That could have been worse.
  6. Well, Mali tried not to make too much noise. Tried not to get into a drag out brawl, but it couldn't be helped. She turned and drove a powerful elbow into the stomach of one of the gang members then used that same arm to punch the other man next to her in the face. Then, she bolted forward like a shot, slamming her fist into the side of the head of one of the men threatening Jessica. As soon as she stopped, she grabbed the other man by the hair and jerked him back, slamming her elbow into his abdomen and sending him sprawling to the floor. "If you can fight, help, if you can't, get safe." She said to Jessica, before looking for more threats.
  7. Mali's going for a goon sweep. Power attack for +4, so +8 attack bonus, DC 26 damage. I assume none of can make their saves or evade the attacks?
  8. Things were going south, fast. She saw that the situation was beginning to dissolve, and this Ye Quan guy had no interest in peaceful negotiations. That suited her just fine. She'd rather go in swinging than dance around the issue. She was fine with peaceful solutions, but sometimes they just didn't work. Crimson Tiger had a target. She took a flying jump, raising one knee as she sailed towards Ye Quan. Her knee slammed into his side, knocking him away from the red girl. He didn't lose his balance, but Crimson Tiger landed gracefully. She raised one knee and stood on the ball of her other foot, the classic Muay Thai stance. Anyone that could see her clearly could tell that she was smirking. She was about to throw down.
  9. Mali is going to do what Mali does best. She's going to charge up to the guy who just fired the energy blast and knock him for a loop with a running knee. Full power attack; 24 That's a +10 to attack, +2 from the charge for a total of +15, then -5 for a full power attack. DC27 TOU save if it hits.
  10. Hannah's going to use her burst Dazzle to see about blinding them. She'll probably blind Corinne, but Corinne's captive anyway. That's a DC20 reflex save to avoid being suddenly blinded. Then, she's going to use a free action to switch to her blast, Does a 22 hit? She'll burn an HP to shrug off the fatigue.
  11. Mali's body tensed as she watched. She wanted to jump down and pound the guy, but she thought better of it. Surrounded as they were with guards, she imagined that they could potentially shoot her dead before she did enough damage to bother with. She wanted to knock him down a few pegs, but she wanted to survive to go home, too. It went against her instincts, but she decided to wait and see, if only for a bit longer. If nothing else, she'd wait for a vantage point to attack from later on. It wasn't that she was afraid of dying, she just really didn't like her odds here.
  12. "We aren't in danger of being shot at." Solar Sentinel said. He wasn't wrong, but he wasn't quite willing to admit the truth of it. Earth simply didn't have that sort of fire power. They were at risk of a superhero investigating, one or more of the Freedom League or Liberty League poking at the craft, but not of artillery. He was, however, alarmed at the presence of the Lor. "With that said." he blinked. "This doesn't make any sense. Where are the Earth's defenders? Where's the Freedom League, or the Liberty League? This is a major breach of protocol right here. Something is very wrong."

  14. In social situations, where she had to talk to people and communicate her ideas and feelings, she was known to retreat. This, however, was different. This was an attack. Anyone that lead attack first was not someone interested in talking. Hannah wasn't great at talking with people, she was more of an artistic soul. She loved to write and draw, she loved to listen to music. Her most recent form of expression was using her powers. She assumed these two didn't think she was a threat. That was a mistake. Her force fields had been rigorously stress tested and could take a great deal of punishment, and that meant that while she could use her powers, she felt safer and more secure. So her powers flared up, the air around her shimmered with color, and Hannah glared at the two her attacked her friend, ready to throw down.
