For sake of bookeeping and for ease of reference for when this thread falls off the board, do you want us to post up formalized stats, backstories descriptions and the like in the ooc thread?

Fine idea.  I have opened a thread for that, here.

Back story and basic idea for Sibyl the mystic.  If you could Vandal, as I do not know the system, a bit of assistance please?

Name: Sibyl
Class: Mystic
Deity: Cybele

Physical description:  5'8" 130 lbs.  Fairly lithe with soft curves.  Deep black hair to mid thigh. Olive complexion.  Light blue, almost white eyes fringed with thick black lashes.  Moves cautiously almost slowly.

Attire:  Long white shift almost togaesque, sleeveless.  Gold bracelets, dangling earrings and torque with leather and gold sandals.  A soft long, oversized white hooded cloak with brass clasp at her throat is worn when needed.  A satchel, also white, is carried with her.  Some small personal items inside along with a curved ornate dagger and a few coins and a chunk of sparkling amethyst, rubbed smooth in spots.

Born blind (hence the near white eyes) Sibyl was raised carefully.  The lack of sight bringing with it the gift of second sight.  Her cautious careful movements simply her way of making her way through the world.  Her hearring as well as her sense of smell and touch greatly magnified to the point where she rarely needs guidance to walk through a normal day to day life.  Her cautious steps gracefully see her through many situations so that some may not realize she is actually sightless.

Her touch is always questioning as this is, as well as her hearring are her way of discovering the world around her.  Touch is also her method of divination.  Touching or holding an object brings visions she could not see with her sightless eyes. 

Once she had reached her majority, after a life of careful training at the temple, she began her duties. 

Generally fearless, Sibyl tends to be overly curious, again due to her lack of sight.  Music one of her greatest passions she will stop everything to listen, giving alms to any who gift her with their music.

=====

Sorry this took so long, real life is such a pain sometimes.  Hope this is all right Vandal.  I am open to any changes you wish to make.

Quite alright, Vella.  I approve the concept, and enjoy it.  A fusion of Tiresias and Daredevil with many touches to make her distinctive.

Her fascination with music is particularly delightful.  She will be meeting characters who she can bond with on that point.

Now by all means, since the concept is approved, you may begin interaction on the I.C. thread.

Should you have any questions about that, by all means, ask.

Not really; as a free action, I could just switch to regeneration and make my death rolls.  If I fail, I just have to wait until whenever.  Greek deities don't seem to have regenerative powers, but instead, resurrectional powers (Sysiphus, Prometheus, etc.).

You can't really take a free action if you're incapable of taking actions, is the thing of that, but okay.

Olympian Deification [12pp]
Super Senses 10: True Sight;
Alternate Power: Regeneration 10 (Resurrection 10);
Alternate Power: Teleportation 10 (Flaw: Anchor [Only to Mt. Olympus])


... plus this ...

You can't really take a free action if you're incapable of taking actions, is the thing of that, but okay.

... equals:

Note to self: Do not be looking around at random, far-away shit or trying to teleport when in mortal combat.

Otherwise, the Gods will have a good laugh at your expense before they decide whether to resurrect you, or just reincarnate you as a flock of birds on an island nobody knows about.

I think that the problem, as it stands, is rather artificial.

I could purchase regeneration for 10 pp and have truesight be the alternate effect.  I think that would eliminate the problem.

Yes, but that would be so weird as to make even my eyebrow climb up.

However, I do not think it is a problem.  I do not see you using Super-Senses when Regeneration is called for to prevent your demise.
