Wealth of 3 doesn't seem like it should be a disadvantage.

It is when you've gone from having millions at your disposal and parents who would buy you anything you want, to having to strip for whatever you get. The fact that she gets big tips is the only reason she has any money at all. :p

Three isn't the bare minimum though.  That would be 1. :P

Again, compared to what she's used to, it's bare minimum. Strippers (good ones anyway) make really good money, but it's still nothing compared to what she's used to having.

Ah, I see. I know exactly what you are going for. Big tastes is more of a disadvantage though then just saying she's penniless. You could have her disadvantage be having a hard time understanding downsizing.

Having grown up knowing excessive wealth, being on her own with no ties to her family hasn't been easy on her... she's had to learn how to live on her own with only the bare minimum.

She doesnt have big tastes, per say. She's just not used to the concept that money... You know... runs out. She's also had to work her way up from literally having nothing to not even being true middle class after being in the lap of luxury her whole life.

I'd think the system is for comparison between the various characters, not the character's prior and current status, so penniless sounds like it should be a 1 regardless of her history. But then, you could have something like 'great loss of luxury' or something as a disadvantage instead (keeping the 3), with your explanation which sounds reasonable as it is, no?

Just a thought ::)

Understandable. It just seems strange with having Penniless as a disadvantage and having wealth 3. It's a small nitpick so it's up to your and the GM's indiscretion.

Holy Smokes! There's been like 11 pages since I posted my character yesterday!

How's everyone doing? I'd ask if I missed anything.. but I'm thinking .... yah!

I call pilot seat. :P

As long as maintaining the Danger Room is Forge's purview ;)

Ben and Forge should get along well, at any rate :-)

Also, in case no one noticed on my edited sheet, Novak and I have worked it out that Victor is Logan's son. BOOM!

If there was a better word for how it relates to her, I would go with that, but penniless is the only one that fits. People are focusing entirely too much on the word and kind of ignoring the explanation. -.-

Her money comes in regularly, so it doesn't work as a 1 or 2, because it's not like social security which isn't enough to get by on, and it's a regular income so it's not free-lance either. I figure if she's living at the school and attending classes but still working, that money goes a heck of a lot further so it would rank around a 3.

Think I'm going to drop Spiderwoman. That was a totally impulsive move on my part.

How is it a disadvantage compared to other characters?  Especially those who have a lower wealth value than she does?

I think it works as a Disadvantage, but rather than the disadvantage being Penniless its really just more that she always wants/expects more. So more attitude rather than wallet based I think? :)

I'd like to have Connor apprentice under Forge if that's alright. I mean, the dude knows Mechanics and was previously working at an automotive shop before he received his powers and tried to distance himself from society by quitting his job.

And Victor is the son of Fem Logan?! Yoooooooooooo~ who the daddy?

Well the front page, second comment, has Orange updating the accepted characters if that interests you. :)

Well, the explanation seems more akin to having troubles adjusting to a new class of wealth. I don't see a reason to change it if that's the explanation.

Aaaaaaaaaaaw. Ok. :/

Exactly. Like I said, if I had a better word for it I'd use that. That's why I included the explanation to say she's USED to having more and so learning to make the transition from obscene wealth to average at best has been difficult for her.

Spider-Woman + Spider-Man (miles version) could have been amusing, but do what makes you feel good! :)

Any ideas on what you'll make instead?

I think I'm going to leave off on a second character for now. Or... or!

I might come back and revisit her later in the RP, if thats okay with you Orange?

So are we allowed to start developing relationships with other characters?

If so, I'd like to talk to someone that's a teacher. 

Nightcrawler was supposedly getting tutored so she could catch up. It would make sense if I knew at least one of the teachers before we begin.

Lives above her means. Lavish.

Budgeting, planning ahead financially, etc are all concepts that are new to her, as she was used to growing up with more than enough money that the concept of financial planning meant paying someone else to manage your stock portfolio and ensure your bills got paid on time.

I believe you are free to start developing relationships. I've been doing that with a few people through the forum and PM.

Speaking of which, we are probably gonna have an OC forum soon.

Heh, no idea at this point.

Sure, that sounds like a plan with Connor and Forge. He's a real Rez kid though. Connor might find him a little weird, lol.

Moraline, both Forge and Logan are teachers, so feel free to PM me if you like.

What does Rez kid mean?
