Dr Archeville

Sturm und Dr... Archeville [OOC]

Recommended Posts

Is Rycon in her Rycon outfit, or in "civilian" clothing? Should the receptionist be saying "one moment, sir," or "one moment, miss"? ;)

She's in her costume. Though she may take off the hat and cloth around her head later.

Thinking back, having Ashley not know the language of the country she was raised in isn't exactly very believable, so I'll make a change on the character edits asking for her to know and understand German.

Intense training under Archeville as the in-game reason for the jump from PL 6 to PL 10? ;)

I haven't decided on that yet, I still need to discuss with Raveled first before I decide (I've already talked with Lone Star). Though, if it is the case, then sure why not?

Idea: the procedure done on Ashley was based (wholly or in part) on research done by Herr Doktor Verrill Herman Archeville, the grandfather of the current Dr. Archeville (and a Nazi).

OK, just to state here that Ashley/Rycon is against the whole Nazi thing that happened, and is against anyone who is Neo-Nazi-ish (Not to say you or anyone else here are of course). How about we say Ashley only knows that Dr. Archeville has had... major family issues.

That's fine, but it in no way answers my question re: who did the procedure on Ashley in the first place ;)

Oh, Whoops.

There we're about seven scientists who preformed on her, but as of now, only three are significant. Her father Rycnov, the Head Scientist Anluk, and the Vice-Head Scientist Conveir.

So, what will Doc find on this basic scan?

And what will he find on a more thorough scan?

(Because what he's doing now is a thorough scan, but he's not telling her that. Partly so she won't be too weirded out by just how advanced the tech he's waving over her head is, partly b/c he wants to know what's going on in her now.)

If you just have basics in mind, that's fine; I'm somewhat good at supplying technobabble ;)

What Dr. Archeville finds in her brain on a basic scan is a small part that is not functioning. This part is actually not natural, it was 'created' you could say, by her brain (it'll be small enough to be seen by whatever the Doctor is using).

A more thorough scan reveals that (including what's been said above) it's connected to the part of the brain that sends waves to the muscles to react to the body, which is the main source of her powers. The Doc can slightly tinker with it to have it begin functioning at say... 15%. This way it allows her brain to grow without the chance of overloading too quickly.

(OOC Note: The 15% is to reflect how often I will be giving her extra pp throughout her time here, since she has her trenchcoat equipment and all her other stats to work with.)

"Created by her brain" = organic meaty bits, and not something like a bionic implant, yes?

Share this post

Hmm... actually, why not! Let's make it a bionic implant that's currently nonfunctional. Dr. Archeville can set it functioning at 15% to keep it from overloading. (The implant IS NOT is reason for her powers, but it will play an important role later on in Rycon's life)

Uhh... I'm not sure what Rycon should say at this point. Can she see the scanner and the implant somehow? Or should I let you post again before I make another post?

He can show her on the second scan, with the bigger machines; that's when he'll show her it's a bionic implant.

Feel free to post her reaction to him telling her she's got a weird "dead" spot in her brain now, though ;)

Doc, I was talking on the chat about Rycon and was wondering if we could use this thread as an opportunity to change her powers. I could PM the changes if your interested.

Also, there's something about the date of the thread that I would like changed.

Share this post


Link to post

Actually, the power change thread is here. thoughts, ideas, or criticisms would be appreciated.

Also about the date, I have another thread that I'm working on with others (I decided that it will take place a day or two before she visits Dr. Archeville, if that's okay with you, though the other thread hasn't have a decided date yet), and I'm thinking all her threads are packed too tightly. I'd like her new powers in time for when she appears in the invasion, so perhaps we could make this thread sometime like May 4th or 5th?

I was about to write "you were two when the procedure was done, so I doubt you'd remember anything from it anyway," but then I took another look at you char sheet. I think your background's timeline needs a bit of work.

Ashley was born in August 1992

Diagnosed with problems at age 3 (1995)

September 1998 (when she was 6), doctors approached her dad about the problem.

"One day," Ash was kidnapped and the procedure done. Presumably, when Ashley was still 6.

April 2006, father caught for the experiment done 12 years ago. 12 years before 2006 is 1994; Ashley would have been 1 and 3/4 in April 1994, so that'd be before the symptoms started appearing.

Yeah... It made a little more sense when she would be 18 (her original age before I changed it to 16). There are a lot of problems on her character sheet that need to be changed or fixed, I mean A LOT.

If she was born in Aug 1992, then in May 2010 (now), she's 17, not 16.

Anyway, what age should she have been when the procedure was done?

Share this post

OK, so to sum up all the changes to make her backstory make sense:

Ashley was born in August 1993

Diagnosed with problems at age 3 (1996)

September 1999 (when she was 6), doctors approached her dad about the problem.

November 1999 (two months later), Ash was kidnapped and the procedure done. Presumably, when Ashley was still 6.

April 2006, father caught for the experiment done 6 1/2 years ago.

Does this make more sense?

Indeed!

Once you get all your desired changes up in the Char Edit thread, a Ref will edit them in.
