Alright not quite sure what you mean by this question, because he can effect any object but the effect might not be strong enough to create any visible reaction. For example might make a gravitational pull between say to rocks stuck in the ground and although the attraction is there the objects won't be drawn together. Also whether an object moves depends on the object it is being attracted to. For example he can't move the floor but can attract people to it. But if you mean "is there an object large enough that he can't cause it to move if it is attracted to another object of greater or equal mass." Then yes I would say about the size of a car. Also the mass of the object does increase the concentration and the physical effort, so the large the object the less he can move. How far apart, if they are within the area around him he can manipulate (addressed below) then he can create a force but the further apart the weaker it is.

Basically, my question is "What is the smallest and biggest object he can affect, and how does the affect alter depending on how big said object is?" And yes, he has to have a minimum and maximum.


Say 30-25 metres? 20?

Eeeh...maybe 5 - 10 on the first couple of days, growing to 30 by the end of the second week. After that, his powers grow steadily to a hard max of 70?

Basically, my question is "What is the smallest and biggest object he can affect, and how does the affect alter depending on how big said object is?" And yes, he has to have a minimum and maximum.

Min - Coin, like a dime or a penny.
Max - Small Car( or is that too big? Would a motorcycle be more appropriate)

I mean the effect alters in the sense that say it was two large objects they might take time to move towards one another, being dragged along the ground, requiring him to maintain the effect and thus use more energy and exert more concentration. If he created a field between the car and the ground the rough might crumple but that would be about it. A coin it would just fall down and as long as it was maintained be very, very hard to lift.

Eeeh...maybe 5 - 10 on the first couple of days, growing to 30 by the end of the second week. After that, his powers grow steadily to a hard max of 70?

Alright say 5 easy, 10 with an intense push, more effort, more concentration?

Ok, sounds fair. How about the duration? What limits are there on the duration of his abilities?

And are there any drawbacks to his ability? Weaknesses, side effects, etc etc?

And are there any drawbacks to his ability? Weaknesses, side effects, etc etc?

At the minute, he could hold two coins together for about a minute before he physically can't do it any more. The larger the object the more difficult, pinning a person to the ground...maybe 10 seconds max.

None spring to mind, or I can't think of any to add if you have suggestions though?

Offline Vergil TannerTopic starter

Hmm...so, that first limit, how would that grow as time went on?

Offline Cuchulainn

Do you mean grow worse? The physical draining aspect?

Offline Vergil TannerTopic starter

Well that, and how long he can hold the effects / the size of the things he can affect before getting too exhausted.

Offline Cuchulainn

Well I wouldn't see it growing worse but it would always be a present factor.

Over time it would improve but it's like a muscle and would require regular intense exercise, in the same way not using his powers would lead to the physical effect rising.

As he gets stronger he will be able to hold it longer and affect larger objects but there would of course be a cut off point, which I'm not sure of it would depend on the limits you want set.

Offline Vergil TannerTopic starter

Ok, fair enough...well, I think that's it for the questions and whatnot...what I'll do is sleep on it, then look at your Bio again tomorrow with fresh eyes and make a yay or naye call. :-) So I shall get back to you tomorrow with either an acceptance, or a request to edit further! :-)

Offline Vergil TannerTopic starter

Okey dokey, I don't think I can see anything that I have a problem with, so drop into the OOC and send me a PM with your Coded Bio and we can get started getting you into the game! :D

ALSO! New players! We are actively seeking female characters! So hit us with some female concepts to help us; we have a rather sudden imbalance of Males Vs Females! :D

Is the list of active characters and powers up to date? Wondering what the balance is at the moment and what powers are really claimed.

Offline Vergil TannerTopic starter

Blech, I have to do that, don't I? XD They are mostly up to date, give or take a couple. I'll quickly go through now and make sure they're up to date, then post here when it's all been changed accordingly!

K working on a concept, there is just something that isn't quiet right. I can't put my finger on it though. I shall tinker with it and see what I come up with.

Offline Vergil TannerTopic starter

No problemo! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with...and it's good to see you again, By-the-By. If you need help brainstorming, PM me and let me know! I can't give detailed critique in-PM, but I can help you brainstorm and answer any questions you might have about the process or character genesis itself. :-)

Silly thing is I finished the character, just something bugs me about her LOL. Not sure what it is :P

LOL. I've had that at times, where I've finished a post and gone "FINISHED....now what the fuck is bugging me about it?" XD

Well, let's crack on, shall we? :D



Animal shifting - Max has the transformational ability to morph and transform into any animal that she has seen herself or has seen in an illustration. These transformations take only a few moments. As a corollary to this power, she can transform back into her default form if an external force like magic transforms her into an animal.

Oooh, interesting. We have an Animal Communicator, but no Animal Shifter. I like where this is headed! I do have a few questions, though;
- Is this power limited to animals that actually exist, or is it any animal, mythical or real? In either case, perhaps just limit it to animals she has seen in person, in the "real world" That way, if I want to introduce a mythical creature later on, we can handwave her not being able to shift into it earlier as "She just hadn't seen one yet." :-)
- Can she mix and match animal parts, or is it "All Or Nothing?"
- How long can she stay in her animal form before she has to shift back to a human, and is she limited by having to spend a certain amount of time in her human form before shifting again?
- Can she communicate with humans in her animal forms, or is she limited by their vocal abilities?
- If she goes to sleep or is knocked unconscious by something, does she stay in animal form, or revert to human?
- Does shifting and maintaining her form take energy, so she finds it harder when tired to stay in a form, or is it just shifting itself that she'd find difficult? Like...does it take constant energy / concentration, or is it a one time cost?
- Is it difficult for her to shift into a brand new form at first, so she needs practice with each animal?


While an animal, she gains all of the physical abilities, attributes, and characteristics of said animal, such as greatly enhanced superhuman strength (a gorilla), superhuman speed (a cheetah), and enhanced durability (a turtle), and abilities such as flight (various birds), and aquatic breathing (various fish). She can even gain the specific poisons and toxins produced by specific snakes.

Well duh. ;) :P


Heightened physical form and senses - She seems to possess a degree of heightened senses in her default human form. Her body is also seems to posses a heightened strength and reflexes.

Eeeeeh....that starts branching into general Captain America areas. I'm not sure how this connects to her Shapeshifting, since the entire point of shifting is to get those abilities anyway. Plus, heightened reflexes is somebody elses main powerset, more or less, as is enhanced strength. Maybe you could get away with slightly sharper senses or agility, but the general Captain America vibe as well as shapeshifting might be a touch too much for WCBH power levels. :-)


Increased healing factor - As a result of this rapidly changing genetic structure and enhanced metabolism, Max also has an increased healing factor. Her healing factor just means that she would heal at a faster rate than a normal human... ie recover in hours or days instead of days or weeks

Again, not too sure how this links into your characters power. She could shapeshift into an animal that has a higher healing rate, but I'm not sold on the "Having a healing factor as a default." It feels too much like you're trying to generalise and diversify, when the point is to specialise, y'know?


Animal nature - If she does not keep her mind focused or fight the urges she can in fact lose herself to the animal mind set that she has taken on. Which means that she does tend to have more animalistic reactions to things even in human form. So don't be surprised if she growls....or purrs in response to something around her.

Does this risk increase with time as well? Like, the longer she spends in one form, the more likely she is to start thinking like that animal?


Appetite - Due to her new enhanced Metabolism Max has a various appetite and can find herself feeling drained if she exerts herself without eating for a long periods of time.

What happens in relation to her power when she becomes drained?


Limited knowledge of her power - With this being the first onset of her powers Max will only be able to turn into animals she has seen. Nothing more exotic than what someone can see in a zoo. She also has issues controlling her natures or shifting(see above). She will also have limited understanding of her bodies new needs and its limitations or lack there off. So there will be a great deal of trial and error so to speak and a few awkward naked moments...lol

Ok, so see the above; is it seen in person, or in illustrations as well? I think the former would work better, if only because if she tries to shapeshift into a dragon and it doesn't work, and then later on I bring in a dragon, we then have to explain why she couldn't shift into the dragon when she tried. :P


Her father is the couch of the football team and business owner.

So they sit on him?
In all seriousness, which football team? The NYC one, the MWH one, the State one...which one is "the" team?


the slacking in her grades.

How much slacking are we talking here? Too much, and she wouldn't have been accepted into MWH. So...C's, perhaps? Also, why is she in a public school rather than a private school? Is it just that her father can't be arsed to spend the money or do the paperwork, or something more? Or is it just that her parents are well-off, but not rich rich?


Max fell into the popular crowd, her talents and status in life just made it seem like it was what she was supposed to do. It wasn't that she was one of the mean girls; she just accepted things as they were. High school life was good for her, even if her home life wasn't the best. But that was normal for everyone...right?

To be fair, the "Popular Crowd" at MWH seems to be rather benevolent at the moment so she wouldn't have been one of the Mean Girls anyway. Unless you want her to be. That's up to you! :P


Max secretly loves music, and not just in a I found my theme song sort of way. She secretly writes her own music and poetry. Not that she ever voices or believes it will happen.

Out of curiosity, does she play an instrument?`



And that's all I can find on my first comb through! :D Looking forward to your answers. :-)

wow wall of text....ok yeah I'll rethink this and see about getting back to you. In all honesty I just looked up beast boy type powers and grabbed them from there. I have never been a power gamer, more into the rp of it all.  Again...yeah I'll see about getting back to you when I have more brain and energy to do so. May just rethink a whole new idea...not sure....we shall see.

Offline Vergil TannerTopic starter

Well, I would assume that Grace, Kimi, Nimah and Isaiah and the like would be. Not so much Ally, though. :P


Aww, Curvy. There's no need to rethink the entire idea - I rather like the looks of Maxine - just look at the questions and think about the answers a bit. :-) I'm only asking so we have specific limits and whatnot. :-) It won't take much effort, just a bit of back and forth discussion to hammer out some of the kinks. If you want to play a Morpher, you're more than welcome to! We just have to hammer out some details. ^_^ Of course, if you want to withdraw the character and come up with a new one, that's fine by me also. :-) Whatever you want to do, hun :-)

To be fair, there's usually more than one popular crowd in high schools - we bratty teens just tend to be so wrapped up in our own little world that sometimes we dub ourselves or our group as 'most popular' or 'least popular' when there were plenty of other areas out there. For instance, in my high school there was the popular jock and cheerleader group, while there was also the popular band group, and the popular theater and chorus group, then the annoyingly popular druggy group - etc etc. There was a small mixture between these groups too, although there was plenty of terrible people among each group that thought they were hot shit also. :P  ::)

So I wouldn't say it's to far out there for some people to play themselves as a part of some 'popular group' that wasn't necessarily a part of any of the player character groups.
