Back to the Present [AoO] [OOC]

Recommended Posts

This is the continuation of "Disco Fever". You might notice the AoO tag in the subject. You guys are welcome to guess what it means, but it should become clear soon enough...

BTW, Heridfel, I wrote in a little tribute to your continuing awesomeness in the Kudos thread. I've been meaning to do that for like a week, but I kept on forgetting. (Damn this obscenely early onset Alzheimer's! :D )

And there's the big reveal. You now know what AoO stands for. It's Age of Omega, as bad as the Age of Apocalypse was for Marvel.

On that note, any sanctioned characters who are interested in re-interpreting themselves within this alternate universe should PM me. My goal is to keep things as soft-roleplay (no combat) for those characters so we don't have to worry about how the sheets might have changed. However, if you're interested in serving as a villain on the side of Centurion, then we might be able to work something out. :twisted:

Yep, that's what I thought it stood for - cool :D

I could be wrong, but shouldn't this sentence read "He must have been 80 or something by the time Omega came, but he suited up and went to go fight"?

Why, whatever do you mean? We've always been at war with Eastasia (cough).

Double plus good! :D:D

(I need to read that book again, now that I'm an adult.)

Okay, I totally got a "Infinite Crisis"-type creepy vibe from my last post. Does Ren sound like Alexander Luthor to anyone else?

The good one, or the retconned one?

And yeah, that's two pretty different responses to something that's pretty much the same thing. One person's dead, and the other never existed. I'm having fun with this.

Anyone here can make a Knowledge (arcane lore) or Knowledge (history) check. If you don't have the skill, the check can still be made untrained, which should give you an idea of what the DC is.

Sorry, I was kind of spacing on this game the last few days; my bad! :oops:

Holy crap, Grim is on a roll these last two days! Check out this Untrained Arcane Lore check! Am I correct in assuming I shouldn't post IC just yet?

Same here, with the spacyness and everything.

Oh and here. Dang, Grim ain't the only one that's on fire! That's a twenty one, baby! :)

Of course, since the DC's so low, I just blew an awesome roll on a unimportant check. Oh well.

Hi! Would you guys be interested in fighting a villain in this thread?

I'd be willing to play the part if Heridfel agrees.

Well, it'd be about time we fought someone. ;)

It'd be fine with me. Who're you bringing to the table? The newly-minted Bloodseeker?

Yup. I was planning on having him be in the service of Omega to hunt out any rebels ala secret police.

That's fine by me as well. I'd like clarification now whether you're using the AoO version of the character, or whether you'd like to somehow bring this villain back into the regular universe (similar to how Bishop, Shard, Sugarman, Dark Beast, etc. came back to the Marvel 616 universe).

I'll post the result of the check here, since both of you easily hit the DC 15.

Between Foreshadow's missing eye and the mention of runes, both Nanowire and Grimalkin note a strong resemblance between Foreshadow and Odin, the leader of the Norse gods. Odin was (and in the Freedomverse, is) a god of many things, one of which is prophecy. He sacrificed his eye to drink from the Well of Mimir to gain wisdom and the ability to prophecy. Odin hanged himself on Yggdrasil, the World Tree, for nine days and nine nights to gain the power of the runes, which are said to aid in prophecy, as well as being powerful on their own.

If Foreshadow, who could already see the future, did the same thing, there's no telling what could have happened. (See, now you know why being trained in skills is handy. :) )

Ooh from what I've read I'd be interested in giving you another villain to fight ^^

Since Kizzy's a hero normally, it'd be just an AoO version. I need to finish reading the IC thread though to catch up ^^

No worries. I'd be glad to have more AoO folks, and we're still not up to the fight (though I'm getting us closer with the last post).

Also, I just triggered two of Icarus' complications. Icarus has reverted to Daedalus' son, and his claustrophobia is going off. Nanowire and Grimalkin have one round to try to do something to calm him before he begins major freakout.

I threw in her Attractive bonus, hope that's cool.

No problem at all. It was a good check, but I don't think it's enough to calm him down. It is enough that he won't start striking out at you, though.

The power stunt I'm using is as follows:

Replace the Blast 13 (Accurate) (after allocation of the Power Reserve for a total of 27 pp) with Disintegration 9 (Extras: Area (Line); Flaws: (Range: Touch), Distracting, Side Effect (Drain 9 (gravitic powers)).

He fires straight up, and just barely makes the DC 10 to hit a given square (that Drain would have stunk). Then the Disintegration goes off and he punches a hole to the surface. He'll also spend one of the two hero points that he just got to get over the fatigue from having done that.
