@Puffhead - Your answers were quite illuminating. Given how the Tradezone doesn't have any major parties vying for control of the area I'm thinking, with your permission of course, of having Walter control the majority of the Tradezone with a subtle yet powerful grip as a result of his years of trading & gathering resources.

After all, while the Stormlands might be a strong contender for control over food Walter can provide ample supplies of perfectly clean water and much, much more. The British rifters can't contend him in the fields of both medicine and vices as their rift's powers work with the more basic forces of nature while Walter's power allows him a far more complex manipulation of fluids.

On another note I've been thinking about your mention of Krag's involvement in Walter's business. Seeing as how Walter is keen to see trade go underway in a safe and pleasant environment if you'd like Krag would make an ideal peace officer. The role allows you a great deal of freedom since Krag can roam most of the Tradezone while on duty so long as he's keeping the area safe like he's paid to do. He'll have a stable job and a great excuse for getting involved in other people's plots.

Just a humble suggestion whilst I pass the time dwelling on character matters.


I was certainly thinking along those lines! And I would certainly allow Walter having a somewhat more impressive (although still subtle) control over the land. Makes for a pretty good dynamic!

Can I join? This concept sounds super cool and I'd love to play around with it.


Absolutely! In fact we're just waiting for two more people to join before the Roleplay officially starts (hopefully) on Saturday! So excellent timing! Let me know if you have any questions okay?

What year is this set in? It's pretty important to figure out what the rift is.

There is no direct year set, but just imagine it's somewhere around 2020 or so.

Okay question: Would it be feasible for a Russian Rifter to have the power of density control? As in, she can control the density of inanimate objects that she comes in contact with as well as the density of herself, giving her the power to walk through walls or become essentially a concrete being?

Yes exactly! That kind of power is exactly what would be under the Russian Rift power set. ALSO, it would be quite a unique ability to work with! Sounds fun.

@Irredeemable - I think more than that James would be quite useful for his understanding of engineering. Walter has great use of people with building skills and knowledge for building his properties. One thing he'll definitely be wanting to construct in the near future is an electric generator plant large enough to power the Tradezone. With that and a stable network of power cables he'll be able to start undercutting the Russian's prices on electricity until the whole country's coming to him for power.

Lurky lurker here... Now, not to try to accuse anyone of anything, but Walter is an incredibly powerful figure. Like, stupid powerful. Not only in his ability, but also influcnce.

Also, I'm very likely to make another Russian. An energy manipulator- so they can neutralise kinetic energy, cause all of the chemical energy in someone's body to go nuclear, speed something up to ludicrous amounts, or start a fire instantly.

Hello lurker! I don't think you're wrong, but I also don't think it's a bad thing! As this is a brand new world, we've yet to incorporate figures of power so having some figureheads is good! Now he may be too powerful, at which place we'll do some tuning, but I think where we're starting is fine. Also I am working on several CS's at the moment, most of which are influential leaders that will rival Walters control. So that should help!

Sounds interesting! Just make sure to add some limitation of sorts, just in case we run into the issue of "well my character could just instantly blow you up" sort of stuff.

A: She has to physically touch the object
B: If she's adding energy, she has to have taken it from somewhere. If she's subtracting, then it's stored in her.

@Lady Selune - As Puffhead stated it may be true that Walter is a deceptively powerful figure despite having few means of directly harming others. He is however simply playing on a different field. For all his influence and power he's got to deal with people no less influential since the four main territories all pretty much command the majority of rifters, though divided as they might be.

Others might have less available to them than Walter but they also have less competition for what they've got.

Walter has some competition now. Also, Krag might be interested as she can allow him to use his powers for longer, and without him needing to eat.

James is going to play a dangerous game, but there's nothing wrong with working for two people, is there?

Looking good! I do wish that there was a little more information on him (some elaboration on character, personality, ect.) but since you've covered the basics and those things can always be explored in the Roleplay I think It'll work! Welcome aboard, and I'll add the sheet to accepted characters.

Ah, love it. A perfect 'rival' of sorts for Walter, and more importantly a powerful force to be able to rival the characters I'm currently working on (who I should be posting very soon.) She's accepted! I'll add her to the character tabs.
