Haven't started yet, but thinking about it. A week is usually enough time for me?

I guess my biggest idea is the Flying Brick archetype i.e. Superman with the twist being each component of that archetype (flight / super durability / super strength) is locked behind a split personality. So when that personality's active, so is that superpower, but the personalities clash: that's the cost of having multiple powers active at once, if he can even manage it.

The 'main' personality has no powers but he's also the only one motivated to fight crime.

Proto name is Benny.

My other idea is a woman with like telekinesis/summoning powers but a mental block means she has to surf through complicated menus to nab anything. Her ego name could be like a hacking term or something.

Hey all, just checking in here, since I noticed that it's been a little while since anyone's posted. If you're interested in actually doing this, then just give me a head's up or general progress update. I'll be posting some more setting and background info later tonight.

Definitely still interested, I've just been busy so far and haven't made much progress (at least, not to where the CS would be done).

And on that note, that's my CS done. I still don't really know if the power is ok or not, so some feedback on that (or anything else, really) would be nice.

I've been demotivated all week. Looks like I'm posting a WIP. Fiendish.

@Force and Fury


Dude it looks so fucking broad. Why

Anyway, I don't like this but maybe somebody else will to some extent. Here's a quick list of the surface-deep things I would add:

  • Actual music where the music notes are...
  • Character quote that distinguishes the four personalities.
  • Character portraits in the gap between the 'Personality' header and the table.
  • Elaboration on the superpowers.
  • Everything in the second hider.

Joseph, The Wizard



Give me another like, 30 years, and I might figure out what I'm doing


Joseph | 22 | M | S | Northampton, England, Earth 19281


P E R S O N A L I T Y

❖ Experimental
❖ Somewhat Cowardly
❖ Catches on quickly
❖ Vociferous reader
❖ Master Strategist

You can mostly expect me to be in the interest of collecting information and learning new things. Separated as he may be from his home universe, Joseph is not separated from his connection to the Arcane magic that permeates the folds of all universes, poor as he may be at this moment at tapping into it, and a lot of his information gathering is focused on this. He would also like to actually figure out how to work this hat (not knowing that there isn't really a defined solution to getting it to work). In combat, he is generally inclined towards attempting powerful feats with the hat - usually things turn our alright, if not at all in the ways he expects.

C H A R A C T E R A P P E A R A N C E

See image

P O W E R S & A B I L I T I E S

Camddealltwriaeth - the hat of ultimate power. Also hard of hearing, a bit stubborn, and is only fluent in welsh. All things considered, Joseph has about a 5% chance to get it to do exactly what he wants. also it's stuck on his head. makes it a bit annoying to sleep with.
Second Level Wizard - Joseph is a low level magic user in his universe, capable of producing relatively low-power magical effects a few times per day.

H I S T O R Y

Joseph the travelling Wizard is a low level adventurer from a Pathfinder campaign set on an Earth-copy Fantasy universe who accidentally came across an extremely powerful artifact made by a rather eccentric and extremely powerful wizard, Gneradnyp Sloamjest. Gneradnyp chose to give the hat almost as much power as he himself had, but also chose to make it intelligent, and nearly impossible to use. he then created a dungeon out of nothing, filled it with treasure and monsters that posed little challenge to any but the newest of adventurers, and put the hat on the head of a zombie in the middle of it, hoping that some hapless low-life would end up with the hat and provide him with some entertainment for a bit.

Joseph has accomplished many great feats with this hat, including but not limited to
-accidentally polymorphing a dragon into a 14 foot tall hamburger
-stopping a flood by creating a small volcanic eruption under it
-turning his body into a remarkably rubbery, bouncy, and impact resistant form for 3 weeks, with the major disadvantage that the form also made him morbidly obese
-accidentally transporting himself to this universe last monday.

M O T I V A T I O N


This world is considerably safer and more interesting to him than the one he came from, so he's actually mostly interested in actually making a name for himself here and having a reason to stay. so far, being a "superhero" is the thing that most closely aligns with his skillset, so here he is. He is also somewhat moral, and does value saving lives.

I N V E N T O R Y

-The usual mage stuff: bat guano, salt, a small femur bone, etc.
-a cloak that makes him slightly more resilient to some magic effects
-his familiar, a cat name Fuzzy the Magnificent
-his book of spells

S T R E N G T H S & S K I L L S

❖ Information gathering and retention
❖ Magic and magical discovery
❖ quickly catches on to new ideas, concepts, etc.


W E A K N E S S E S & F L A W S

❖ see the hat's description
❖ Not at all equipped to end up on the frontlines of combat. he has a hat, a cat, and a funny little book.
❖ completely normal human. he dies to a well-placed bullet
❖ for whatever reason, completely unable to comprehend welsh. He's tried. He thinks it might be related to the hat.

Soooo... is this still alive? Because if it was, I'd totally be down to become a seemingly useless superhero. I've been dreaming of that since I watched Sky High as a kid!
