Jumping...

Is fine for me, since I land on my feet without a problem... probably not for the others though...

I still like the idea of it being the top of a skyscraper... it seems to be the most accommodating of the possible settings, and perhaps the easiest to get to... not to mention, it isn't entirely out of the question.

The other way I can think of involves the core of the facility being underground (or otherwise hidden in some natural feature), with my room being at the top 'floor', which is high enough for my character to get some sun...

Just my thoughts...

Oh, sure, landing on your feet is great but hundred feet are still going to break them.

As for Nimu's questions:

Metro City is in.... I don't really care. I guess you care, or else you wouldn't be asking. I was thinking general when I made the city, so it really could be anywhere. I think we should stick to the States though. So, Metro City is somewhere in America.

Morality has a shade of gray. This is exactly what became a problem in the "Dark Years of Heroism" during the 1980s into the mid '90s, some heroes behaved like villains while some villains behaved like heroes. The easiest way is simply not try to identify who is good and who is evil, and just stop those who commit crime. Evil is in the eye of the beholder, so who do you think is evil?

I have no idea how you met up. If you work for an organization, that's a good enough reason; you were hired. You may share an idea of how the world should be or have a common foe that needs to be dealt with. This is something I want you to decide instead of having me force it on you.

Who's Sen McCarthy? For now, the government is on standby. They came up with the idea for PLE permits for supers so that they could keep an eye on most heroes and so that those heroes could keep an eye on the rest of the supers. The government is between benign and malignant, some believe they are evil and others have great faith in them. Pretty much how it is.
If there is some sort of shadow government pulling the strings of the world, you certainly wouldn't know about it.

And Grugg, I still haven't got your character, and Dragonblood failed to send his too. The Q&A thread may be up later today though, if I find the time between writing an essay and prepairing for a practical exam in performance arts. Which I probably will.

EDIT: I would suggest that you work for an organization. It answers a lot of questions and the plot-hooks are very interesting in my thought

Sorry, didn't finish the backstory. Probably won't finish it today because I'm having me a party...so, tomorrow.

Hmm

I don't have 'Slow Fall' for nothing y'know

As for how our characters meet... being hired by the same group is the easiest way to go about it. Otherwise, if there's a common interest between all of them, they could meet up on a blog or something, then group together that way. Or, they could all just end up at the wrong place at the right time, in an incident or something, then met each other that way. It really depends on how coincidental and probable or improbable we want it to be.

due to request

The Q&A thread is now open. Feel free to ask any questions, chat about the game, or whatever.

I added some information about the setting there that you might find helpful.

Meetings

I'll be happy however we decide on having met, but I have a preference for the clandestine event/wrong place at the right time idea.

Alright, I'm off to check out the Q&A thread.

BTW's
Senator McCarthy was a prominent figure of the Red Scare. He was eventually censured by the Senate for his unsubstantiated accusations of communism (he had a tendency to accuse political opponents of communist allegiances).

Game starts

...as soon as I have accepted all characters. Still waiting for Grugg's character and Dragonblood's character is a bit iffy. Game should start soon, though.

Room for one more?

I'm just previewing the RPG book. Looks cool! Got space for one more?

If so, can you give me a brief idea of what the other folks are playing?

I imagine I should be able to put something together by the end of the week. What do you say? Will you have me?

Thanks
Ayrn

I'm pretty sure there's room...

But I'll let Skari-dono have the final say ^_^

As for me, I'm a copycat (in more ways than one)

So...

Reralae: You're kinda like a "mimic" archtype with some funky feline flavor?

And Grugg is kinda like the "paragon" archtype (that's my best deciphering of "german superman").

And Nim's got the "psionic" archtype covered (with the crazy shaman).

What about Dragon? I've read through the recruitment thread, but haven't discovered his deal yet.

Anyway... I have my eye on the costumed hero archtype, through I could be swayed to the battlesuit or energy controller types as well.

Regardless, Skari-dono, let me know the verdict.

More or less

Both morph and mimic, but yeah, you got the idea

Yes

There is room.

Reralae is a shapeshifter.

I don't have Grugg's character yet, but as far as I can tell he is playing a german duplicater. That's the only power I know he has.

Nimu's a psychic.

Dragonblood is a master of fear, actually able to damage you by "fear-blasting" you.

What we don't have yet is a powerhouse, flying-man, speedster, energy-/elemental-controlor or a heroic norm (such as powered-armor guy, pure martial artist or such characters without innate superpowers)

You are welcome to join, even if you want to play something different from what I just mentioned. They are just ideas

Well...

If I'm to understand what Grugg is intending... he'll be able to fill in the role of the powerhouse, just with the added plus of being able to duplicate himself.

Not really into comics

What's a "german duplicator"?
