Oh GAWD, you do not know how many women there are seeking man meat to perv on. Seriously, it seems like half the female cast is crushing on Dante at the moment, and he finds it weird and uncomfortable. >.>
XD

So in answer: Yes. XD

Awesome, I will see what I can come up with. App could be either tonight or tomorrow depending if I can finish it before work. Do I submit it here or another thread?

Oh my god, we're not animals! (Man meat *grimace* elegant choice of words  :P)

You submit it here :-)


And LOL, yes, because Dante attracted all this female attention with his sparkling wit, winning smile and debonair personality. >.>

And hey! I've seen a group of attractive women competing / fighting over a good looking male. It's terrifying.

I can't speak for everyone. Maybe they like robots. Like "hmm, yum, that monotone." Though...now I feel like I've put down robots and they can be really cute.

Lol, does the women's attractiveness make it fiercer?

Offline Birchleaf

I would assume that attractive women would be more used to getting what they want, so probably fiercer.

That said, there are males besides Dante. Just less... well, studly alpha ones.

Offline RPG33K

Darn it, reading the OP I see it is very unlikely for me to have a Green Lantern. Really wanted to play a original character with a Lantern Ring. But I can work out a different concept. The app will most likely materialize tomorrow.

Maybe. Though, I have really pretty friends who tend to just lose interest when someone plays hard to get just because, you know, there are so many options and so little time. I do that too, so maybe it's just (lazy) birds of a feather. Still, you're probably right because it's fiction. (And lol, I just remembered, options aren't a problem as far as guys in this game! But you get what I meant, generally speaking.)



Online Vergil TannerTopic starter

Haha, well, I'm not talking about guys playing hard to get....a lot of the time, the guy didn't realise until the "Winner" announced herself XD
But yeah, attractive girls are more used to getting their way, AND they - I assume - feel threatened when another attractive girl wants the same guy, so...competition can get very fierce. Of course, the same could easily be said of two attractive males going after the same girl. Or guy. It's just a "You want what I want and I see you as a threat" thing. It truly transcends genders...though from where I'm standing, I've seen women get far more vicious with it than men. But then, that's anecdotal, so doesn't really prove anything other than my experiences with women in my area. XD



On topic, yeah, a Lantern Ring isn't gonna happen...partly because this is in a separate universe, but also because a Lantern Ring - in this universe - would be massively OP. Sorry, dude.

Offline RPG33K

Eh, it's fine. My last major superhero rp did not know the meaning of OP. I normally play lower tier characters anyways but I did have a thought of using one of the coolest weapons in fiction. GL is my favorite hero after all. Takes no crap from Batman.

A couple other ideas are either self replication, heat beams or.....spoon manipulation. I had a guy once create a character concept with Fork Manipulation and another with Super Jumping so there are several possibilities.

Online Vergil TannerTopic starter

Well in any case, I look forward to seeing what you come up with :P Though bear in mind that this is a serious-toned game, if lighthearted in nature :P

Offline RPG33K

Question, would video game physics or manipulation with limits be considered too OP? Some games are quite out there. I was thinking that starting out he would be limited to simpler, ie older or classic games and draw a very specific ability from it. Such as speed from Sonic the hedgehog, weapons from Legend of Zelda or the fire flower from Mario. Also he would have to have played and beaten the game in question. Meaning that his 'training' would be playing video games and unlocking new abilities.

Eeeeeh....the thing is, that gives him access to potentially THOUSANDS of different powers, which makes it kinda like... "Why does he need the other cast members if he can do everything already?" Super Speed from Sonic, Zelda weapons, Megaman arm blaster, Bowsers flame breath, Donkey Kong's strength, Doomguys durability, Lara Crofts...um...rockin' tits...
Well, the powers can stack and spiral VERY quickly. So considering the rest of the cast tend to have a very specific "THIS is what they specialise in" with the closest thing to a Jack Of All Trades being Dante - whose counterbalance is that he has literally no superhuman physical abilities; his powers are entirely related to mental capacity and theoretical knowledge - I think the kind of power you're describing would get very OP, very quickly.

Hm, yes. I think I might need to be re-evaluating Allyk's current 'crushing' as well, so some more men would be nice.

Figured it would have to be a limited form rather than an unlimited form. Would you say it would need to be heavily restricted or outright forbidden? Just asking so I can either get to work on limitations or a new power entirely. Reading the setting one idea is that he was playing a specific game when the power generating event occurred and thus he can only mimic abilities drawn from that specific game or franchise.

But as you said, I could just as easily brainstorm a new idea as I work tonight.

Ummm....any limitations on that power would be so heavy as to render it so situational, I'm not sure you'd have that much fun playing it. I'm not against the idea of it with limitations, but....well it doesn't really fit the power scale. You can try, of course, but not promises. It might be an idea, if you're going with it, to brainstorm a few "Backup plans," too.


And lol, Ammy...I think Dante could think up a few things for Ally, once he's in the mood. :P

I understand. I am thinking I may just incorporate the gaming aspect into his character rather than his power or skill set. If it's not obvious, I am definitely a gamer. I will think on it for a while and return tomorrow with what I can come up with.

Offline RPG33K

NAME: Dalton Carver

AGE: 18

SEX: M

APPEARANCE:

ORIENTATION: Straight

RELATIONSHIP STATUS: Single

TYPE: Gamer, Comedian, Insecure Attention Seeker

POWER THEME: Super Speed, his top speed is unknown to himself due to his general easy going nature and lack of interest. But so far he has reached40mph by pure accident. His top speed however is on the upside of 500mph.

Enhanced Durability: Allows his body to physically withstand the force of his super human running, offers next to no resistance to injury.

Enhanced Reflexes: Allows him to maneuver at high speeds without splatting himself against walls and more or less move as naturally at high speed as others do normally.

Enhanced Healing: Allows Dalton to heal from cuts in days rather than weeks and broken bones in weeks rather than months. Will not regenerate organs or heal mortal wounds.

FLAWS: Glass Canon=Dalton is not fast enough to outrun bullets and as such can be killed by a stray bullet should he get careless. Likewise he can be ambushed and killed before being given a chance to harness his speed if taken off guard.

Fuel to Run=Dalton needs to consume at least three times the recommended calorie intake to remain healthy and safely use his abilities. It is difficult for him to perform around 4,000 calories and at 2,000 he is starving and will be useless.

Out of Shape=Dalton is not physically fit and will need to train to unlock and maintain his highest potential.

BIO: Dalton was born in a small cow town in Georgia. He doesn't remember much from that time, that being said he does recall his mother telling him he was much happier back then, of course, who isn't happy at five? It was not long after Dalton started school that debt forced his father to close the farm and they moved to New York. Dalton tried to adjust, but his accent marked him as different and his newly impoverished position made it impossible for Dalton to 'keep up' with the other kids. Throughout middle school, Dalton dealt with some light bullying due to his awkward frame, deep southern accent and obvious hand me down clothes. He did manage to make a couple friends, Holly and Trevor but into high school Freshman year, Trevor moved to Japan with his military family and Holly was accepted to a prestigious musical school in Philadelphia.

Despite his problems fitting in early on in elementary and middle school. By his sophomore year of high school Dalton was actually making progress in establishing himself socially. With a colorful sense of humor and tendency to draw attention to himself with joking outbursts or even local talent shows where he performed as a talented magician and comedian. Dalton was actually quite well known by many by his junior year. However, the death of his father and the failing health of his mother placed great pressure on the teenager. By the time he was in his senior year, when Dalton wasn't goofing off in school as if the world didn't seem to weigh on him. He worked as a magician for kids parties part time as well as perform in the local amateur comedy and talent club, the 'Laughing Hat' for money to help his home get by as well pay for his mother's medical bills,

When the chance to get away from the stress at the Ski Resort in Colorado opened up, he jumped at it despite hating snow. It was just a chance to unwind. Not to mention ask his crush out, someone he felt rather confident with. But he didn't get the chance,on the second day a freak earthquake hit and cut him short. Bummed he shut himself in upstairs for the rest of the day playing his obsolete Dreamcast, his prized possession.

But after the trip life seemed to return to normal as he continued his schedule of cracking jokes, sliding by in school, performing at school and local events and taking care of his mother.

But little does he know his life is about to change forever.

WRITING PROMPT #3: ZING! ZING! ZING! ZING! Just five more minutes, I am almost up. Slapping my arm around randomly as I attacked the snooze button I attempted to do just as the snooze button described. And sleep just a little longer. I know the first day of school after that Colorado trip is today, but I just need a few...more...minutes. After another five minutes the hideous alarm went off again, and this time I crawled myself out of bed yawning like a bear from hibernation. My room was literally covered in various collections. I had shelves of comics, cases of movies and boxes of games. My walls covered in a patchwork of posters from game and movie titles and comic characters. Still half asleep and rubbing my eyes I nearly tripped over a Sega Genesis controller which I still keep hooked up with a Sega CD and 32x and Sonic CD. Sometimes they really don't make em like they used to. Passing by a picture of the freckled face and glasses equiped Holly which lay on my nightstand on the way to the restroom, it was the one just before she left to Philadelphia.

The whole morning ritual took roughly fifteen minutes, five minutes longer than it should have considering I shower before bed not after waking. And sure enough, as I hobbled out of my apartment building...the bus was leaving me behind. Normally I would just get a ride to school but my dad is out of town and my mom has already left. Besides, there is a red light just up the street, and I am sure I can catch the driver's attention there. Blazing after the bus I wave my hands wildly and shout in every attempt to garner some attention. I managed to get a few of the students in the back to look at me, but from the look of amusement I was certain they were not telling the driver. Just as I was close enough to almost touch the bus, the light goes green and it takes off. And as it starts to get further and further away, I begin to realize that I am not Usain Bolt.

I don't really know what happened next, but I was rather embarrassed and frustrated. However that doesn't explain how I shot forth with speed approaching that of a dragster race car and straight into a dumpster in an alley way. Besides scarimg the hell out of some commuters, I spent the whole trip walking to school smelling like half eaten pizza from the night before trying to piece together what the hell happened. You see, doing something out of reflex or instinct can be a problem when you try to replicate what you did. Namely because you had no idea what the hell you did in the first place. Finally, reaching the school I paused on the front green and sighed. Knowing that I am going to start my first day back smelly, late and confused as hell.







Hope this makes the cut, I wrote this up after working all night and used a Wii U gamepad. I think it's one of my best applications recently If that is not too bold a claim.

Okey dokey! So, as per use, I will hit the powers first.

Super Speed is fine and dandy, no issues there, but I do have a few questions about his other abilities and his limits.

Remember, this is a Day One game, so he would only JUST have been hit by his power-giving event, so moving at 140mph right away is a bit too much; I would expect his lower limit to be MUCH slower, and the upper limit would also be lower...remember, this is nowhere near DC and Marvel levels of power, and Speedsters are usually considered some of the most powerful characters in the series they appear in. In this incarnation, powers are limited much more heavily than previously and - after some thought - I've decided that Speedsters in general need to be more toned down. So I was thinking that - as a starting power - he can move at a top speed of about 35mph, which is about 6 or 7mph faster than Hussein Bolts peak sprinting speed during his Gold Medal dash. After that, it would consistently increase with practice and development to maybe....a few hundred miles an hour? Considering the power scale of the game and looking at the other characters, I would say 3-500mph is a fair absolute top speed, wouldn't you? The speed barrier is more or less 750mph, and for the power scale of this game, and a Day One game to boot, that's a bit too fast, wouldn't you say?

Also, I need to ask what other capabilities this includes; I presume that his thinking and reaction speed would be increased as well? This factors into the limitations, since thinking speed is also predominantly Dante's "main power," as it were, so to maintain balance Dante's thought speed would have to at least be on par in order to maintain the whole "If this guy can think super quickly and run super quickly, and this guy can only think quickly, why do we need this other guy?" Y'know? :P Or maybe it's just that his reactions are far faster, but he consciously thinks at a "normal" speed? It's up to you; these are ideas for you to bounce back to me...what kinds of things do you think could balance that?
Further, I assume that his body would be at an increased durability to cope with the stresses of moving so quickly? If so, what limitations does that have? Is it just resistance to G-forces and friction, and a normal punch to the nose would still burst it?
Also, does his speed affect his healing, so he has a healing factor, or is it strictly movement speed?

Further, I need you to add the other category that you missed in the pitch; if you look at the provided code, there's also a few other categories, the important one being "Flaw." That includes a character foible - like a personality flaw - AND limiters and drawbacks to the power. So, what negative effects does the power have? Any limitations? EG, an enhanced metabolism that means he has to eat MUCH more, or his energy gets expended more quickly so he tires faster, accelerated aging, or anything like that? Basically, drawbacks and limitations to the power that have a noticeable effect on its utility. :-)

In order, I actually thought top speed was very slow for a speedster. At speed of sound he would already be considered a low tier speedster in fiction. I think Quicksilver can break light, Sonic can break light and the Flash essentially IS speed. Starting off at anything below 60mph is like Deathstroke speed. However because this is your game I certainly won't argue the issue and I am rather compromising by nature anyways. Could we go 50? If not and 35 is non negotiable then I am perfectly fine.

Certainly, well thinking and reaction speed basically comes with the package. And I don't see a significant reaction speed without a super thinking speed. I mean how can he react to a super attack super quickly if his mind cannot keep up? So let's call it super thinking and reaction but because that's your main power you just do the thinking part better. Also, Dalton is not a creative thinker, he's certainly not Batman. Assuming that will be your niche so that is another advantage.

As for durability, it's enhanced to endure the speed factor, but he will be a glass canon. Taking a bullet at any speed kills him. Healing is like durability, enhanced but not 'super' he's no Deadpool, Hulk or Wolverine.

Sorry for that, I am on a Wii U Gamepad so copying code is a pain in the butt for me. Would a near lack of interest in exploring his powers count? Otherwise I have to think about his personality a bit. I work tonight and need to start getting to work.

Yeah, but remember once again that this is nowhere near Marvel and DC power levels. DC heroes can pull entire planets behind them with how strong they are, Marvels spellcasters can literally warp reality and erase an entire species from existence. We Could Be Heroes is MUCH more grounded in that our Super Strength character would be considered a low-mid-tier strength character by Marvel standards. So you have to adjust your expectations according to the respective power levels. Obviously Flash and Quicksilver will kick your speedsters ass...because different universes, different power levels. Y'know? I mean, the Flash can travel between universes and go back in time. That is obviously far too powerful for WCBH. :P


Starting off at anything below 60mph is like Deathstroke speed. However because this is your game I certainly won't argue the issue and I am rather compromising by nature anyways. Could we go 50? If not and 35 is non negotiable then I am perfectly fine.

Well, it IS a Day One game. As in, this is LITERALLY the first day they have their powers, so they're gonna start off weak, go through a bit of a spike, then get more powerful as they go along. So...maybe 40 as a Week One level, and it grows consistently from there.


Certainly, well thinking and reaction speed basically comes with the package. And I don't see a significant reaction speed without a super thinking speed.

Reactions have nothing to do with conscious thought; when somebody throws a ball at you, how much conscious thought is required on your part to move your hands to catch it, or at least block your face? That's more based on reflexes and muscle memory than actual, conscious "I should move my hands to catch that ball." How that would go is *throws the ball* "I should ca-" *BLAP*
Y'see? So I think enhanced reflexes and enhanced sensory input processing to deal with the intense speeds, but actual thought speed - conscious, problem solving and lateral thought speed, as well as surface thoughts - isn't necessary for a Speedster. Reflexes and reaction times are, however, so obviously you can have those.


I mean how can he react to a super attack super quickly if his mind cannot keep up?

Again, you're confusing reflexes with conscious thought. Reflexes have nothing to do with thought; hell, the electrical impulses that cause reflexes don't even REACH your brain; it would take too long to travel there and back, so it takes a shortcut to the "trained" muscle memory areas.


So let's call it super thinking and reaction but because that's your main power you just do the thinking part better. Also, Dalton is not a creative thinker, he's certainly not Batman. Assuming that will be your niche so that is another advantage.

So yeah. Thought speed has nothing to do with it.

[As an example, if you poke me with hot coals I will jump back in pain. This action is the result of an innate reflex. Afterwards, I would probably start thinking about why you would do such a horrible thing. This is conscious thought. I'm retrieving the event from memory, running through it, analyzing any and all remembered details, then judging the results of this analysis against any information I have which I feel may be related.
If you poke a frog with hot coals he too will jump back because of an innate reflex. But, we are to assume that he will not think about the event as I would, being as the frog possesses no language and cannot run through, analyse and draw conclusions from his memories. Obviously, reflexes are different to conscious, intended thought that might - in this setting - be read by a Telepath.]

Enhanced Reflexes? Yeah, obviously. Enhanced speed thought? Eeeeeh...not necessary.


As for durability, it's enhanced to endure the speed factor, but he will be a glass canon. Taking a bullet at any speed kills him. Healing is like durability, enhanced but not 'super' he's no Deadpool, Hulk or Wolverine.

That seems fair. Slightly accelerated healing, but nothing that will save him from a major or mortal wound. *nods*


Sorry for that, I am on a Wii U Gamepad so copying code is a pain in the butt for me. Would a near lack of interest in exploring his powers count? Otherwise I have to think about his personality a bit. I work tonight and need to start getting to work.

Eeeeh...I don't really see that as believable. "I have superpowers now....whatever. *shrug* " XD And either way, the personality flaw would have to be something related to who he was BEFORE his powers surfaced, not something to do with how the powers changed him. :-)

Ok, so we settled on 40mph for day one? I can go for that. As for thinking and reaction, I see what you are saying there. Settled on normal conscious thought and a super reflex. And we are agreed on durability and healing limits.

As for his lack of interest in his power I came up with that to balance his power. He is a by nature slow moving man and hates to rush others or feel rushed. Liking to take his time. It's different than the typical speedster nature of being cocky, edgy and addicted to action. I thought that would be a interesting personality twist for a speedster.

But I can think about it again at work and add more to my character when I get back tomorrow.
