Freedom City PBP: A How-To Guide



Everything posted by Tiff

  1. With thanks to the suggestions by Ari, and in honour of, Into the Spider-Verse we have a choice of the following: Your Best Self Somehow, some way, your character discovers someone or is discovered by someone who epitomizes everything they want to be. Someone who did better with the same hand life dealt the PC, someone, who succeeded where the PC failed, in some clear and inarguable way a better person than the PC. The drama can come from any way you like, maybe the meeting comes from a fight with a supervillain who's torn some rent, in reality, potentially forcing one or the other to sacrifice themselves to protect their home dimension. Maybe it's just a chance meeting with a stranger whose life story mirrors yet exceeds the PC's in some way. In any respect, the point is to force an examination: are they who they want to be, and why? What's the significance of someone who can literally be you and be you better? Is it just luck? fate? Could the PC be more like that, and if so do they really want to, now they see what it means? Or alternatively, The Me beside of Me It's a time of new beginnings! Endless possibilities and roads yet to be taken, which is why it seems fitting how in January of 2019, dimensional duplicates of random started popping up, and heroes and villains from other worlds briefly stumbled into their doppelgangers for hilarious misunderstandings, brutal combat, nights on the town or just solving an everyday doomsday crisis. Some were nasty, some were nice, some were another sort of spice, but all together they helped make the first month of the new year an exciting time to be alive! Or at any rate, self-aware. Please post them here by February 28th. (As a reminder, vignettes follow the same general rules as posts in terms of content, player character limits, and so on. You may have only one vignette per player character. Each vignette should be at least one page (~500 words) in length; if posted in your thread counts at the end of the month, it is worth 1pp for the associated character. An especially long vignette, 1000 words or more, may be worth up to 2pp. Multiple players can collaborate on a single vignette - we recommend Google Docs for this, it's very useful - but the vignette should be about one page per participating player. )
  2. When you submit an edit request, please do not just submit a new code-blocked sheet for us to copy & paste. You must tell us specifically what you're adding/editing. A code-blocked sheet is not required but does make it easier on us. So not to clutter things up too much if you do include the sheet please stick it within spoiler tags. When submitting edits for multiple characters, please make one post per character - it helps with the bookkeeping and make sure that an issue with one character edit doesn't affect another's. Whilst we endeavor to do these as quickly as possible we're only human, so don't be afraid to contact us if we've not gotten to your edit's in a while. Though please go easy on use and if you can limit your edits to only one or two characters at a time.
  3. As I'm up here and everyone is clear let's try to distract the Grampus by stabbin' it! Attack Roll: 1d20+14 23, DC 21 Toughness if that hits.
  4. The Traveller Sitara’s fingers flew over the controls as she tried every trick she could to get a good, or even any, lock on the station. As much as she hated to admit it the Terran had the situation down perfectly. “Either we’re getting a sensor echo and the stations somewhere else, or already destroyed. Or it’s out of phase with local space-time, neither option is particularly good.” As she spoke she was considering all the possible options to the solution, this was an engineering problem, not something she could shoot or punch. Sometimes that was much more satisfying.
  5. I'd like to spend a HP to stunt Total Concealment (Visual) from her Force Field please, and Scarab will try to disable the security. She has Skill Mastery on Disable Device for a total of 30!

    The Scarab III Kamala has no skill in sneaking around, but she did have a solution. Generating a stable gravitic field it wouldn’t take much more effort to alter it to wrap light around her, making her invisible to the naked eye. Hopefully now able to pass unseen she made her way to the roof, slower than normal so not to tax her systems, to the roof where she had noticed earlier they’d had a security system set up. Using her suit she set about disabling the entire system, hopefully allowing Tsunami to get inside unnoticed.
  7. Weirdly I have a theory you'd say that! Here we go Attack Roll: 1d20+14 23

    23:00, 5th November 2018 Southside, Freedom City Humanity had a great capacity to recover from almost anything, and that included their capacity to hate. Only a few months after the city had almost been obliterated by an invasion force already the various gangs of the Southside had already started fighting amongst each other. Even worse a few of the devices from the invasion had leaked onto the black market, including once such device that according to good intelligence was going to be sold this very night in a warehouse in more run down part of the area.

    Ink (OOC)

    Hopefully, I can do this as a simple Snare effect, but if not I'll throw in the HP to make this thing happen!

    Doctor Thorne “Best not touch the books, in case...” her warning came a little to late as they were caught in fire and light. Well, time for a new plan she guessed the ink seemed to be acting as a singular entity so it should be able to handled as one. That meant she should be able to hold it in place... “I have an idea that will work. When I tell you drive it back towards the hole, until then don’t let it touch you at all.” Rushing down the stairs she made a few quick calculations before getting out a piece of chalk, which she carried for just such occasions she began to draw and holding circle around the area below the holes in the floor.
  12. Zhenshchina-voin There were times when Klara wished she payed more attention when the priests talked about the ancients pact with the spirits of the mountains, though she doubted the spirits here spoke the language of her people. But still, she guessed it was up to them to try and sort this out. “Best not, if she’s there conduit then they’ll be drawn towards her, and we don’t want to put anyone else at risk of attack. I suggest we get her back inside the church, it’s probably the best protection for her right now.” It wasn’t much but it was all they had available, so that’s what they’d have to use.
  13. White Lion will attempt to trip whoever is carry off her "friend" Attack Roll: 1d20+14 19, Dex Roll: 1d20+8 26.
  14. White Lioness When Àjàṣorò saw her fellow classmate being snatched away she didn’t hesitate to rush into action, despite wanting to be treated as normal whilst on the states, it was nothing compared to keeping people safe. “I’m afraid I can’t let you get away with this!” Closing with the opponent she went down low and swept out a leg, with the desire to trip over her enemy, she’d worry about Corinne one they were safely down. Besides she was a dancer, she was made of sterner stuff than most.
  15. Doctor Thorne Leaning on the railing she looked down as Strix attacked the lone goon, she couldn’t help but feel a twinge of concern. From her time around the vampire, she knew he was somewhat in control, but she also knew that the thirst was always just below the surface. Rosa quite liked the vampire and would hate to have to put him down. “Do you think he needs our help?” she very pointedly didn’t say which one needed the help.

    No worries, we have a surprise round so post you surprise action here, including any dice you need to roll. We'll also need an IC post but you can wait to see what happens first if you want.

    Gunfire Night

    GM Post The assembled members, all in the same colors of a tasteful burnt orange, were hanging around casually weapons slung at their sides. If they expected trouble it wasn’t going to happen until whoever was here to buy the weapon arrives, they weren’t expecting heroes to arrive on the scene. Unluckily for them, heroes were about to appear out of thin air! Of cause that was until the two flashes of light denoting the arrival of the heroes teleporting in, enough to temporally surprise them for a few moments but not for longer.

    Okay heroes have the element of surprise, so give me an action and initiative please.
  19. Deep Space, Lor Border Zone 14th Jyeshtha 2075 "I did not know that Terrans still had a nudity taboo!" A bemused Sitara walked back into the cabin of the Kavaca zipping up her freshly donned jumpsuit, the ships proximity alarm providing a well-timed distraction. The voice of Akazavani spoke as soon as Sitara entered the cabin, she could speak where she wanted in the ship and even had a holographic image for just such occasions. But she was being well behaved today, obviously, she understood Terran behaviour better than Sitara did. "We're picking up a distress call from a Lor Navy ship, the Glorious Exploration of the Unknown."
  20. The Traveller Sitara had travelled the universe for many years and seen and heard many strange things, and this didn’t even reach the top ten of that strangeness. She’d heard of similar tales through her centuries of travel. “Well, that complicated thing! The good news is that the crew are probably stuck in a dimensional pocket, the bad news is that it protected by creatures that exist between dimensions.” With further scanning, she nodded as she reached a conclusion. “As I thought the area of most instability is around the engines, that’s our best chance to recover the crew. But those creatures are going to give us some trouble that's for sure. You ready for this?”
  21. The Dream Dimension Saint Agnes Day (21st January 2019) One benefit of training in the mystic arts was an awareness of when you were dreaming, so it made it difficult to be surprised to enter the dreamscape. So it was a double surprise to Rosa that not only did she go from her meditations, but she was also in a house that looked straight out of the ‘50’s. But her sharp mind wouldn’t allow her to be totally stunned, so she got up from her meditation and began to explore the house. She was of course in the kitchen, full of the wholesome smells of baking cookies, looking to all the world like a wholesome housewife. Rosa, however, knew better, her mystical senses told her she wasn’t who she seemed. The trefoil flames on their gingham dress were a nice touch as well! “I assume I’m here for a good reason?” she took a bite of one of the cookies, luckily here she could eat without problems. “I assume you know about my daughter?” “I believe you have several, all lovely despots I’m sure!” There was a flash of anger in the “mom’s” eye’s, but she bit the anger down with a fake smile. Even without Liam’s social skills, she could read the mood. “One was taken from me before she could complete her training, I need someone to show her the mystical realm. Show her the realm, ending with my own and I’ll give you what you want, freedom from your bounds to Bedlam...”
  22. Many things happen all over the course of a year and it can be difficult to keep track of everything that happens, so we’re restarting a Timeline of events over the year. But we could do with your help when you start a thread can you post here the title and link to the thread, it’s location, date of start and which characters are involved, looking something like this: Ink - Bedlam City, 12th December (Ronin, Doctor Thorne, Mister Strix, Lady Horus) It’s not required and we’ll try to keep thing updated here, but it will be a great help if you could. Winter January SOPHie's Choice : Shock to the System - Early January, Earth-1071984 (Forever Boy, Sun Dragon & Dio, Ms Thurday) SOPHie's Choice : Between a Rock and the Deep Blue sea - 3rd January, Earth-10041963 (Delta, Lord Steam, Hazmat) Stargazers - 11th January, Super Museum, Freedom City (Aurora, Forever Boy)
  23. ... All be aware that a special transdimensional craft, the Seeker of Perpetual Harmony [Image Enclosed] is active in the Sol system. A reward is offered for any data people can collect on the vehicle, especially if it can be convinced to return to the station. The vehicle isn’t dangerous but is single-minded in its mission across the dimensions... Praetorian Bulletin, CoVic Station Liberty Park, Freedom City, United States, Sol III System 09:00 EST 3rd January 2019 To those on the planet itself knew nothing of this craft, for all they knew it was a strange silver craft shaped vaguely like a Horseshoe Crab. Even though it was a new year it was more or less business as usual with the craft hovering just above the ground in Liberty Park. Apparently, it was waiting patiently for people to turn up to investigate its sudden arrival in this local. Not that it had to wait long in a city of heroes...
