Not to worry, Ryan -- I expect the first bit of tomorrow's session will be introductions and getting GM approval on new & revamped characters (i.e.; Kenneth & Ben's heroes)...we ARE still good to go for tomorrow, Mike?
Yep. I will need about an hour to review character writeups and maybe another hour to bring the new character(s) onto the team.
Sorry gang ... in final crunch for VA ren faire, which starts May 11 and I've still got TONS to do.
Plzzzzzzze say yes
Everyone I am going to be running a little late tomorrow I am going to try my hardest to make it. Sorry it just been crazy week. Ryan
Sorry, this thread has kinda gone off topic hasnt it. Have created a new topic called 'Changing my Character'. Lets move this discussion there.

Which reminds me -- how are things shaping up with YOUR character, Kenneth? (Or do you prefer "Ken"?)
If you want to solicit some more specific advice on how best to afford the stuff on your Wish List, Ben, you could always post your writeup to the Files section, and maybe start a separate thread so we can bounce ideas around...and since it's a slow day at work, I may see about uploading "Mr. Expeditious", a speedster of my own design, to maybe offer some food for thought about how to incorporate some speed-related power stunts into the mix. And you could probably do quite a bit to shave points on him for those cyborg and tech-related gimmicks you want -- maybe drop his SPD down to 6 or 7, lower his PRE and INT a bit, lose the Wealth, etc. Hopefully you might something useful in it...
The cyberfang thing is another problem Im having with Hardwire. As for overlapping with Midnight Monkey, well, lets see...I envision Lisa as having been a thief and still having a taste for the finer things in life, seeing nothing wrong with stealing from the rich and as a hobby she sometimes passes herself off as someone rich/famous at fancy parties. How much does this overlap with MM?
BTW, she also has a soft spot for the poor and takes her role as protector of ordinary folks seriously.
True, but he's also a former police officer. Which actually brings up another point -- while I think Hardwire has potential and would like to see him better optimized, there's the risk that he might overlap too much with Cyberfang's shtick, depending on how you develop the character. And you run into a similar concern of Lisa not having a unique character hook if Ryan's already staked the claim on the "reformed criminal" archetype. That's not to say we CAN'T have two characters with similar backgrounds -- the Justice League had two "last of their species" extraterrestrials, Superman and the Martian Manhunter -- but you should try to give it your own spin so everybody brings something unique to the table...
get some input from him
midnight monkey is a reformed crimnal
One of the problems Im having with Hardwire is not enough points to give him the andriod/brainy skills/abilities I want him to have, so I wouldnt be able to give him the transform/CE. I could drop the mini-bazooka for 36 pts, but that would remove his multi-range attack ability, thereby reducing his flexibility.I dont know about making Lisa a trickster, but we tweaked her background for your campaign somewhat, Jason, so might be able to tweak her here. I actually thought a reformed criminal would be okay for Mikes game. The question is how crooked a PC can be currently and still fit into the game.
Well, you could always tweak her background a bit as well -- make her a trickster rather than a full-on (reformed) criminal. I don't think I've ever had a close-up look at Hardwire; but I tend to favor characters whose power gives them a lot of flexibility rather than having a checklist of specific things they can do, and shapeshifting would definitely fit the bill. Either that, or you might revisit Hardwire and maybe give him a variable Transform or Change Environment to let him do some super-speed power stunts...
Lisa is a shapeshifter. I like her better than Hardwire, but shes a bit crooked so I wonder if she would fit into a four-color campaign like Mikes.

Was Lisa in the game I played? I can't remember what her powers were. Energy projector would also be a very useful character. Play whichever character would be most fun for you ... that's my advice. :)
Planning to be there.
Thinking about adding 'Unified Power' to a lot of Hardwires abilities. Or changing characters to a new energy projector or to Lisa (my char in Jasons game). Thoughts?

Drat. I almost certainly can't make it on the 4th, but will update when I know for sure. Even if we're not setting up the pavilion that day, I'm going to be a nervous wreck making final preparations for the ren faire.
no problums here but AWWWWW MAN it got moved :(

No chance for yours truly -- I have a class on Saturdays that runs until about 2:30pm...
Okay, had to reschedule. I like the idea of seeing IM3. Any chance of doing it in the early afternoon, pre-game? It might be a nice adrenalin boost for the run.
id love too see it might know a few that would want to see it too i whould like it to not block out the game its kida of bitter sweet when it happens

I'd love to see Ironman 3, but will have to wait and see if I'm in town. That's the weekend they're putting up my medieval pavillion at the Virginia Renaissance Faire and I want to be there to watch, and to set up my display hardware. I'll call the pavillion rental place to see when they plan to set it up.
Speaking of the weekend of the 4th, that's also opening night for "Iron Man 3" -- any interest in rounding up a posse to go see it, either after the game or the night before?
Hope you can play this weekend. I've been swamped with work and need a break. :)
I may have to postpone to May 4th but I am trying to see if I can work out a scheduling conflict. Will let you guys know ASAP.

Schedule change will help me get my thoughts together andwrite up my character. I just picked up Hero Designer andwant to play with it a little.
yay good news on my side a least sorry if its bad new for or any one else that has any
On the plus side, it looks like my big cookout is getting rescheduled, so I can set this for the 20th without a problem.
it might be more role playing the combat since it says part 1 but i a agree we dont stand much of a chance in combat i heard you tryed it be for with 3 people and it did not go well

I can host in Bowie, MD if Michael would like to still run it, although without our fearless leader, Liberty Bill ...
sorry to hear that jay:(
will still have three people to play if we can find some where else to play in the end its up to the gm.
Guys, I think it might be best for us to reschedule this next session -- or at the very least, you guys will have to deal me out & find an alternate venue for this session. Camille is housebound & recovering from surgery, which means I need to pick up the slack regarding the parenting & household stuff...
Guys I have got to sit this one out I have a guest from out of town coming in sigh. I hate I am going to miss this one. Also Jason I sent you a frame work for the aid power I am developin any tips or pointers would be useful.
Thank you and sorry everyone.
