Wait are you talking like Tracer? Because we already have a teleportation like character.

That is literally even more of a no then what I was describing as it falls back on rule three and still is unenjoyable for players.


I think you need to fully explain your definition of Godmodding, since all it says in rule three is to make it so nobody is super perfect and dodges all attacks and thinks things all the way through. My character will not be that. My character is not a god. It's a time power. So what? So many characters within the world of Worm have time powers. I don't get the difference between theirs and mine. I obviously don't have enough weaknesses yet, but I can add more.

I think I get it but honestly, pal, you sorta stacked the deck against yourself with your idea of an introduction.

I think his power is meant to be more like: if someone got hurt, he could reverse time to heal them. He might also be able to age someone, potentially to dust.

P.S. Still working on my WIP, just waiting to hear back from Mintz.

Your profile says you’ve only been on RPG for around 50 days, so I’m assuming you’re new to role playing.

Generally speaking, characters in a setting like Worm can be made as powerful or as weak as the writer wants because Worm has a singular author. In a role play, every player is an author of a shared story. That means you have to be considerate of others. My character for example can completely negate your ability to even use powers, but she has to hit you with something first. She does this with forcefields, and since other people need to be able to use their powers in a team setting, I have to think about where she places these forcefields otherwise I can make it really unfun for the other writers.

This rp isn’t like canon Worm, whatever one character does affects other characters and the people who have to write for that character.

These two have explained the reasons for concerns and what I have been trying to express.

I get the power you are talking about but the GM's have expressed there concerns, IF they were to allow it you would need to heavily limit/specify your skill set

EXAMPLE being:
They can reverse "time" of a sentient being up to 30 second in the past. Kind of thing.

I would imagine this would be more used a "healing" ability so maybe you can rework to more of a support type power and instead of having it be "time manipulation" so to speak have it be more Augmenting other's abilities or a straight healing power.

The GM's don't want time powers but someone who can Augment other's powerlevel or speed might be allowed?

I'm going to be putting my foot down here; in general, while time powers aren't foreign to Worm as a setting, they are typically aggravating to work around in a lot of ways. Not to mention how you've compared it to Eri, who has undeniably one of the craziest abilities I've ever seen, and at the very least, she has the limitation of being a literal child, alongside it needing time to stock power, and her having effectively no control over it.

So, yeah, I'll be saying no to an ability like that. I feel it would be unfun for other players to work around, and irritating for me to try and work through with my antagonistic forces. Apologies here, but I really just want this chain of complaints to come to an end.

Correct, would be a better way to keep aspects of the original idea without it being too crazy or so time involved.

I get that. I'm sorry for what I said. It was not warranted nor needed. Hopefully you guys forgive me one day. On the bright side, You actually got it right. I could imagine someone who can actually reverse situations to an earlier point would be a PAIN to deal with logistically, which is why I made a character that cannot do that.

What if I did that then? What if I gave him no control over it? Eri's being a child doesn't really do anything given that her powers would work the same as an adult as a kid if given no training. Also, she has been seen controlling her power, such as during the fight with Overhaul, I believe. I can also impose some kind of stocking limitation like that.

I'm just curious. What are you worried about with Time powers? From what I can see, you are worried about powers that go back in or loop time, as that would be really annoying and logistically impossible, and my power does neither of those things, so what's the issue? Not to mention I have practically no use against people that can negate or directly counter Time Manipulation with their own powers.

Type 1 Immortality (I'm sure it's a power somewhere) also makes my ability basically useless.

Regardless of limitations, I've already said my piece; I do not want a power like that here. If you can come up with something different or heavily work the concept you have, then I'm willing to listen, but otherwise, it is as I said. We're done with this power.

Wait. Last thing. If It's still a no, I'll stop asking. Wouldn't all of the problems you have with my power be fixed with a stockpiling requirement? This way, without extensive time, I couldn't super-heal or instantly move people's states forwards or backwards.

Nevermind. Mintz just left this page, and I'm not stupid enough to not take that hint. Any power suggestions?

I don’t see stockpiling working as it would make your character useless for long periods of time and ultimately to a power we are still not wanting to accept.

I would suggest changing your idea as @LostDestiny suggested. They would be similar but not exactly the same.

The current characters we have are

Frontliner absolute unit with anti-power shields

Portal person who shows up late to meetings

A healer

A gmod spawn menu

a wildcard engineer

an edgy homeless guy who makes weapons

And Wilbur

If that helps you narrow ideas down

"I'll get this done tonight or early tomorrow", I say, like a liar.

Favorite powers by the way are the more scientific ones, or at least the ones they try to justify with science, like Ant-man

How long should our backstories be?

In that sense, my app is ready for review in the meantime
