Concept sent. Please tell me your thoughts and or opinions on the character. I'm interested to see how he comes across because I was modeling him after a fellow I knew in Job Corps, and am wondering how close I got.

Will be in Dragon Chat for awhile if anyone wants to shoot the breeze.

This is probably a stupid question to ask, considering how long you've been around the Inn but.... pop-up blocker or firewall interference, perhaps?

yup

Popup blocker is usually the culprit.

While we wait... I know that Eol's assigning powers and all, but what are your guys' favorite powers and why? "flight because i love flying" counts, but try not to be too obvious

Well...

I like the idea of shapeshifting. It would be quite useful when you want to confuse a lot of people, or get people to do what you want just because you impersonate a very important person. It's also kind of fun just to turn into a tiny bug and back.

Edit: I'm bored again, so I'm gonna go on DragonChat for a while (again). Anyone's free to join me...

Can't choose one

I totally cannot choose one.

Choosing one for me is like choosing my favourite chocolate covered cherry in a box of chocolate covered cherries. I like a lot of them.

As a player who tends to have a lot of magic characters, I've used and thought about many many sorts of powers.

If I start listing things in no particular order, we may be here a while... but I'll try to keep things brief.

Data Manipulation. Such a power only works with a technological setting, naturally, but the ability to manipulate data is intriguing. Particularly if the setting follows a 'the world is data' archetype *coughMatrixcough*, or virtual worlds exist in the setting. This is probably one of the first powers I was shown, from the .Hack//INFECTION game.

Body Manipulation. This has many sub-categories, but what I am talking about in particular is shape-shifting. Polymorph, or other sorts of transformation effects. Not illusion, specifically transformation. Would be such a useful power for cosplay! Feel cat-like, be a cat-person. Feel small, be a fairy. Feel like a mix, be a mix (feline fae with dragonfly wings, yes please).

Energy Manipulation. In particular, I like water and lightning, and probably gravity as well just for flight, since physics alone would dictate shapeshifted wings to not be sufficient. Electrical energy always seemed to fascinate me for some reason or another. Another energy I like is 'life'. To be able to strengthen a life force and heal it would be really neat, and if it's coupled with a 'donor' requisite, then that causes some interesting storyline morality questions that the character has to face.

Would that make me a shapeshifting feline sylph with storm powers? Dunno. Those are the main categories I like anyhow

oooooooh...

...I'm with Rer, here, so hard to choose just one. :/

I have had favorites from one time to another but they've varied with life circumstances and such... At this point in time, if I HAD to pick one, I think I'd have to go telekinetic. Something uber-cool and spooky about moving stuff with your mind.

Also, methinks Jen's a tad psychic!

A tad?

Oh ho ho...

But I am psychic! Through and through!

Oh yeah...and being telekinetic sounds cool. So, if there ever was a top 3 for my favorite powers, it would be:

1. Shapeshifting
2. Mind reading
3. Telekinesis

Personally

I don't like the idea of mind reading. To elaborate further, I think it's an interesting power and in stories it can be done well, but I think applied to an actual realistic setting it'd be much more trouble than it's worth. Thought projection and telepathy I can see, that's active, and kind of like talking, but through a different medium.

Mind reading, however... Thoughts are weird things, people can easily have random, sporadic thoughts, and reading those wouldn't be fun. Not to mention the risk of overreacting to reading those thoughts where the person would think after 'why did I think that? that's a bad idea' or 'wait what? no, I didn't mean that'.

People tend to be raised with the mindset that it's okay to have bad/unwanted thoughts as long as they're not acted on, so I'd rather see their course of action, not read them

You know what I don't like the idea of?

Sitting here at work any longer!

On my way home to put work behind me and a game in front.

Hmmmmmmmmm

Will just throw out some thoughts and remembrances!

Ruling out Flight Powers, but remembering the Legion of Super Heroes with their Flight Rings!

Lightning Lad and later Electro (Spidey villain) zapping foes with lightning bolts!

Shapeshifting is a Cool power and has limitless possibilities for applications!

My exposure to Super Heroes came with my first Brave & Bold comic book featuring the Justice League of America vs Amazo!

Super Speed caught my imagination with The Flash.

When I first got a copy of Fantastic Four #1 vs The Mole Man then I was captivated by all 4 powers and their evolutions over the years.

Stretching abilities, Invisibility, flying and throwing flame balls, strength and tough to be neutralized by an enemy!

Spider-Man exposure was a comic featuring a battle with a Dr Doom Robot in issue 5 or 6 that a friend of mine loaned me to read in high school.

The Hulk #1 was enjoyable and all his incarnations!

I liked the invulnerability aspects and strength that could 'take a lickin and keep on tickin' so The Thing and The Hulk were always fascinating characters.

Being able to shrink and be invisible would be interesting.

Ray Palmer aka The Atom was always interesting in the earlier comics featuring him!

Leaping around like Spider-Man or The Hulk and smashing things would certainly alter the day of a lot of people!

Ice-Man was my favorite original X-Man and mind powers were a cool thing also!

One of my favorite Summer Annuals featured The Thing where there was an 'Intergalactic Olympics' where Super Powered beings from all over the galaxy were being teleported to a big arena planet to fight each other!

When they came to Earth, several of the Marvel Super Heroes were considered, but they chose The Thing to represent planet Earth in the competition!

Ben Grimm refused to give up even though his rock skin was chipped away and he was shown bleeding!

He refused to give up!

Please

Get with it Sib!

I have my Rough Cut and hopefully Eol will finish my character and send the completed info later today!

We need the Character Description and Background Info from everyone so Eol can get the characters' super powers finalized and then hopefully have an Intro Post up soon!
