This is the internet, I thought the former was assumed?

True, but the magnitude thereof is extremely variable.

So, how goes the selection process? I'm curious if Joe's going to finally get a chance to play. :-P.

Sorry, been a busy week... I'll try to work on Nightmare tonight, and finish him by tomorrow.

The first round of probing questions has been sent, but for those of you still lagging behind the lines are still open.

I sent out a pm asking about the initial bought of questions, did you get it?

OK, glad to see that I'm not too late to put in my two-cents worth on this.

I'm actually a friend of the MadPanda over there in the corner. He told me about this game, and how it might be a bit guy-heavy. Also, this concept (after reading the past posts) sounds interesting. Now, to come up with a decent character.

So, what are we lacking at the moment, concept-wise?

Appologies to all, things are leaning to the busy side here, and the rules update for the EWF proved to be much more work than anticipated. How this will weigh on the game's incept is yet to be seen...

No worries Xer. Do what you need to; it's just a game.

Yep. And, after a night to think about it, I think I have a concept.

Miranda is the daughter of two very prominent (and very powerful) heroes, which is part of why she's currently being mentored now. She is highly trained in all the skills a good hero needs; martial arts, stealth, athletics,  and investigation. Only one problem at the moment.

She hasn't manifested any powers.

Don't get me wrong, she WANTS to manifest. Her parents want her to manifest. It just appears that her genes are stubbornly refusing. That's the other part of why she's here; to try and coax her into developing powers.

Trick is, she HAS manifested. It's just that her powers are so subtle that no one around suspects them. Things just seem to go her way. Granted, this does not mean that she lives a charmed life; she might discover the one clue needed to crack a difficult case by literally tripping over it, she narrowly avoids getting hit in the head from a sniper by tripping and spraining her ankle, and so forth. Think Marvel's Black Cat, but she's not aware of the ability.

Her secret, personality, etc. I will PM to Xer later today. Right now, I need to come up with a code name.

I already thought of a name for her.

Slapstick!

Or possibly The Vaudeville Avenger.

I'm wondering if I should just go ahead and submit my idea...I noticed Xerial seems to have a lot on his plate, and that drowning him in more stuff would probably be a bad idea.

To be fair, we've set an extremely low standard for names just by considering my character. Although it would be cool to go for a Jimi Hendrix song theme in the team...

Not if we don't know she's super-lucky.

Howabout something that reflects what she wants her powers to manifest as?

Appologies for the continued delays, but with work, classes, and keeping up with games I'm afraid things are conspiring against this taking off...
