And then I throw in references that make @Fading Memory rethink their life ... and steal a new page ... and damn that was a mother of a post.

I did something very different with my stylistic choices for this one. This is also the first time we get to see a bit of the truth behind the [REDACTED] bits of backstory references in her sheet. There's more of a story there than just chewing through some convenient plot-fodder.

@Sierra

Excellent post, I'm enjoying your character in a rather distinct sense.

Such infiltration. Very hostile. Much explosion. Yes.

I think I dropped enough suggestion that its actually a bit out of character for her, and I made some stylistic choices to use the flow of the post to help convey a cold, methodical, almost rhythmic approach that's hard to do through words alone.

And after reading that post I am now very concerned that E-War is going to have to be very busy here very soon if someone gets a little too far past Panopticon Holdings in his digging.

First off, I got struck by the muse and it's taking me a bit longer than I stated yesterday due to a sudden revision of what I had written along with adding more. Today like 100% will have it up.

Secondly, I've accidentally written 'Oscorp' instead of 'Osi-corp' about a thousand times now due to Spiderman's existence.


Knowing KF the decision to go with Osi-Corp was a deliberate troll.
Going to catch up on the IC then I may throw in a GM post to keep things rolling until our benevolent overlord returns.

ANOTHER THING

Would people want a game discord server or do we prefer using the OOC here?

On Discord I could create ic channels for in universe social media etc

I prefer forum for the most part, but I'm not opposed to discord. The thought of having social media and news from the world and our characters shenanigans would be pretty awesome/immersive.

I think I might just the keep the bio too long and write a TL;DR at the top.

Should I mention cybernetics in appearance or in a different section?

Also, it occurs to me kinda late, but is it alright to have my guy be almost entirely cybernetic? Like, basically a brain and a spinal column in a cyborg body?@Ezekiel

I already extrapolated it forward from that abridged name into the formal title of "Osiris Holdings Ltd." so ... is that "ya snooze, ya lose" on naming rights? :P Either way I needed to make a more professional sounding reference so that's what stuck.

As a GM, I'm gonna say no. It seems like a good idea right now with all this activity but it ends up being counterproductive to keeping the activity going in the longer term. Its also common for people to get carried away and make spaces for IC content which ends up splitting content, creating inside jokes & references, and causing confusion among other things. I've seen it done and even done it myself and seen all these things happen at one time or another.

@Ezekiel I'm also a no go on the discord route. I like having everything for our RP hosted under one nice little roof...as much as I do like the idea of us having a fake Twitter.

you're all just losers who are afraid of the social power of Saturnina. You couldn't handle her fake twitter tweets.

The discord trick is something I've used to real positive effect in some other rp's I've run, but if the general consensus is a no I won't force people to, the purpose of running things by people.

I think I might just the keep the bio too long and write a TL;DR at the top.

I'd certainly say it is possible within the limits of the setting, however the concept has a rather high margin for abuse/powergaming/not sticking on theme so I'm happy for you to write a sheet with a character like that but I may be stricter in terms of quality before I can approve such a character.

I hope that sounds fair.

Still here and working on someone, current mulling over someone who is the Awakened's answer to Saturnia with a few twists thrown in. ;) @Fading Memory

Very fair, it does have a lot of potential for powergaming. I was so enamored with the concept I didn't think too much about that, I admit. I think I'd better build in some weaknesses. The idea is it's a high end job, but fundamentally a compromise between combat functionality and good quality of life. That suggests some inherent weaknesses.

Some thoughts:
-Only core functions EMP hardened (basic movement, life support)
-Even with high end security, still vulnerable to hacking (except perhaps core functions)
-Limited endurance? (Limitations on how much can be powered at once)

As I write that last one a thought comes up: ever play Crysis? Something like that might work, except only strength, speed, and armour. Like, he could harden internal carbon weave to resist bullets, but only as long as the power supply can last, and can't use enhanced strength or speed at the same time? Similarly could provide boosts to speed or strength, but only for limited time before the power supply needs to recharge. When not in any particular mode, he'd be no better off than any regular augmented person (that is to say, slightly better than a baseline human, but far from superhuman). Thoughts?

As for discord, I'm a fan. I find it's really good for brainstorming.

I wouldn't be looking at trying to 'balance' the character in terms of power level (although I would suggest not straying too far from what can be found with the other characters) more than with certain advanced concepts such as that, I'd expect a more in-depth sheet, something to convince me that someone isn't simply trying to pick the most overpowered 'build' they can get away with and are instead using the concept to craft an interesting character.

I'm less concerned with balance, and more in crafting a narrative that's fun for all.

@Ezekiel Hmm, alright. I'll endeavour to wow you with my CS.

Gonna need to do some revamping. It's solid right meow, other than some awkward wording here and there, but I need to solidify the 'why' of my character. At the moment there's an awful lot on his parents, but I think the 'why' of his personality needs fleshing out.

Unless I made his parents the why...

K off to do some writing!

No sheets are currently under review so it's just those in the character tab :)

Also as at least one person wanted the option, here's a link to my personal discord server, purged from previous games. Hop in if you want a more direct way to contact/chat with me.

As there were more people that didn't want to use it, I won't be running the IC channels idea at the present time.
