[Abilities 14 + Powers 92 + Advantages 28 + Skills 36 + Defenses 16 = 186]

Complications
Motivation - Responsibility: With Logar and incredible speedster powers, Gavin is trying to adapt to his new friend and abilities all of a sudden.
Public Identity: Given the scientific study and observation of Logar, it did not take long for Gavin's identity to be connected as the new, permanent host of Logar - plus saving the farmer's market.
Relationship: Gavin certainly still cares for his family, and anyone choosing to threaten them would trigger his wrath.
Shared Head Space: Gavin has to deal with the clearly intelligent now, but nonetheless erratic presence of Logar and the shadows of the minds that make up Logar itself as part of their symbiotic fusion.
Quirk - Light Sheath: As with all previous individuals hosting Logar, the use of Logar's speed powers cause a glowing light sheath to appear around the user's form. Though now shut off when Gavin isn't using his powers, it does mean stealth or disguise is an on the job problem.

Gavin Kyle was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or as Logar feels it, the right place at the right time. It's a point of disagreement between the two. Nevertheless, he was around in town visiting a farmer's market when strangely enough, PHANTOM soldiers appeared to swarm the location and hold everyone hostage.

This was when the golden streak of Logar's energy appeared, and intersected with Gavin's form - throwing him into a blank confusion for a moment, and then Logar whispered in his head: "I like you. I'm gonna stay." And in moments, Gavin found his extreme super-speed made beating down the terrorists very easy.

In the aftermath, Gavin realized he had significant powers, and more to the point, Logar hanging around in his head, the two beings fused... and they needed help with putting them to responsible use and properly get used to controlling them. His parents ended up contacting the closest super-school: Avengers Academy.

Why Super Logar as a hero name? Logar became a Mario Fanboy.

Skeleton Key
http://s24.postimg.org/tpiky8zdx/no_poo_poos_no_boo_boos_and_no_hoo_hoos_by_the.png
Theme: The Walker -- Fitz & The Tantrums (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGBLlFMn9Xc)

Complications:
Motivation -- Freedom: Mostly for herself: Skeleton Key just wants to do whatever she wants. But she's a nice person so she helps out oppressed people whenever she runs across them (not to mention it's fun foiling dictators).
Hunted -- The Foiled: Whenever one helps the oppressed (whether it be downtrodden peasants or star-crossed lovers) you invariably incur the wrath of people who wanted things to go another way.
Hunted -- For Love: Of course if you're a dashing adventurer you woo people (by intent or accident), there are always those who won't forgive you for it, whether it be because they didn't approve or because they wouldn't take "You're a psycho-b!tch with a living doll fetish" for an answer.
Power Quirk -- Unexpected Performance Issues: Skeleton Key's miraculous thievery skills sometimes fail or cause something even worse to happen with no warning. Often in such a way like it seems the universe is doing it just for giggles.

Theme: Never Had A Friend Like Me (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCxMm1TJYhU)

Complications
Power Quirk (Comprehend) -- "Let's get naked and sacrifice a small goat.": It's a universal phrase book, sometimes it doesn't have the specific sentence in it and Insekt has to cobble together her own. Hilarity Ensues.
Power Quirk (Morph) -- "Sure is an ugly rabbit.": Insekt's shapechanging always leaves at least a bit of "tell" to her true form (similar coloration or similar facial features etc), meaning the Genre Savvy have an easier time spotting her.
Responsbility -- Parent: Insekt has taken it upon herself to care for the changeling nymph Debug found in the crystal caverns below Canterlot.

Complications:
Teenage Alien Warrior Turtle: Beyn is a Krogan, there is no hiding this fact. Despite his refined mannerisms he is still a very large turtle alien with a genetic predisposition to surviving some of the galaxies harshest environments. This intimidating exterior is rather off-putting particularly for those who hold prejudices against Aliens.

Nice Hat: Beyn always wears the (Bowler/Top Hat) that he was awarded for graduating his Etiquette School with high honours. He is very protective of this hat. Any slight against this hat is enough to rouse Krogan instincts that usually lead to someone getting head-butted until their face is caved in. Damaging the Hat is a one way ticket to PAIN town. DO NOT MESS WITH THE HAT!

true gentlekrogan: Beyn is always polite and well mannered. Even when he's laying you out with a punch. He is meticulous about maintaining the standards of Etiquette at all times, Even managing to lift his pinkie while drinking tea despite the Krogan hand only having three digits. He is the quintessential GentleKrogan.

"I want to be Garrus.": Beyn looks up to a number of figures both real and fictional. Sherlock Holmes, Black Wing, Garrus Vakarian. Individuals who are able to overcome obstacles through skill and cunning, while also able to bring down villains with a precise and carefully directed application of violence. These are the people he aspires to be like.

"he's my best enemy.": Every great mind must have its opposition. Every hero needs his villain, every detective needs his criminal mastermind, Every Holmes needs his Moriarty. And Beyn has a Moriarty all his own, his nemesis Draco Moriarty.

Krogan went a-courting: Beyn is dating the Krogan of his dream, the demure and gentle Appa, AKA Sailor Tuchanka. He does his best to be a good suitor, and while an absolute gentlekrogan he's more than willing to resort to fisticuffs in her defense if called upon.
-----------
Krogans are a race renowned for their hardiness and capacity for war. Built to survive as a Prey species on a deathworld, the Krogans are among the most resilient species you will find. They are also one of the most warlike as they have bombed themselves back to the stone age several times over the course of their history. As such when it comes to petty warlords or would-be conquerors who want a species to use as the basis for their cloned army, many try to use Krogans. Almost always this ends poorly as few such people, "have the Quads", to actually command with an army of Krogan. Combine this with rare Krogan scientists (usually of the Mad variety) looking for ways to overcome the Genophage with SCIENCE! and you end up with quite a number of defunct Illegal Krogan Cloning programs.

Some of these operations did not have the same resources as others and that led to... cutting corners. This is the result of one such case. As part a standard 'Clone a Krogan Army' tin pot dictator scheme a branch of the project was dedicated to creating cloned Krogan designed to serve as the perfect officers and commanders for this clone army. However this was an incredibly poorly funded project so only one tank-bred officer type Krogan was ever created. The would be warlord was taken down long before any of the tank-bred krogan were ready for the field so what was left of the project was quickly reduced to black market merchandise.

The poor funding for the officer program had the effect that the computers and programs designed to teach the Krogan while in the tank had their fair share of glitches. While much of the combat and officer training was still imprinted, it shared attention with Diplomat training programs, Classic literature from various worlds, and media files from across the galaxy. As a result, The Krogan who would come to be named Beyn, was shaped very differently than intended.

The Tank containing Beyn was eventually made it into the hands of Captain Kraken, and was smuggled to a buyer on Earth.

When the buyer opened the seals and let their supposed new killing machine out, Beyn politely asked what was going on. He continued the polite conversation for a few minutes where he was able to determine that he was in the company of individuals of ill repute, and they expected him to work for them and assist them with their acts of skullduggery. Beyn was not pleased by this situation.

About this time SWORD raided the hideout. Beyn assisted the SWORD agents in apprehending the ones who had purchased him before surrendering to SWORD custody peacefully.

Beyn requested he be able to stay on Earth, stating that as this was where he had first emerged from his Tank that this was the planet he was technically born on, and asked to file for a proper birth certificate and other papers. It took some time for SWORD to sort everything out but he was eventually allowed to stay on Earth.

While still under probation by SWORD he was allowed to enroll at his request in an School of Etiquette, at which he learned everything he needed to be a proper gentleman. He graduated with high honours, the first step towards his goal in life, to become a true Gentleman heroes like the kind featured in many of the books he had been shown in the Tank. Thus begins the tales of Beyn Tryggvassen, Gentlekrogan Adventurer!

Against the gods: as the student of Relentless and friend of Flare Corona, Durga has made a powerful enemy in Wotan
Dollhouse: Durga has taken responsibility for the rescued slaves of Melody the Puppetmaster, trying to re-integrate them to society while fending off their mix of advances and fangirling. her experiences with Melody have also made Durga violently opposed to slavers and abusers of others
Family Matters: Durga is the guardian of Genesis, aka Evan Sabahnur, the childlike reincarnation of Apocalypse. as for her own family, Durga still idolizes her oafish father Gongen, and is absolutely terrified of her mother, to the point of gruesome nightmares.
High Lemuria Uber Alles: As a high Lemurian, Durga has her share of their signature arrogance and quick temper.
phobia: Due to a childhood trauma, Durga has a strong fear of clowns and circuses.
Motivation - Responsibility: Durga believes that the strong should protect the weak.
Love is complicated: Durga is Xova's girlfriend, but is also attracted to her new friend Myung, unaware she's really Wuchou, a clown and supervillainess in training at the shadow academy.
Stand out: as a 7'0", 200 lb., green skinned hermaphroditic amazon catgirl, Durga stands out in a crowd.

A High Lemurian, Durga is the daughter of their disgraced general-turned-ambassador Gongen and Scientist Supreme Cybechidna, and handmaiden to Lady Yuna, whom durga loved. when Yuna found true love, Durga was crushed and volunteered to represent High Lemuria to the rest of the world. upon arriving in Kansas, Durga discovered that Yuna had entrusted to her care Evan, the reincarnation of Yuna's father, Apocalypse.

Mere hours later, the two were enrolled in the Avengers Academy, and while ostracized as a weakling back home, Durga found friends and adoptive family at the school, taking the morose Jared "Foxfire" Sewell as her second foster brother, and after a trip to the distant world of Malva, returned with her girlfriend Xova, a draenei slave with biometallic skin.

Recently, however, Durga was mentally violated by an extra-dimensional sex predator & puppet-master named Melody, who sought to add Durga to her harem of mindless slave. Although freeing herself and some of melody's slaves, and sending their mutual rapist crying home to Mother, it was not before Melody changed Durga's eyes and ears into those of a cat. Not that Xova or the other dolls mind, nor Durga's new friend Myung, whom durga does not know is a Shadow Academy student.

update: changed the picture, and added a secondary theme

Update 2: added Not So Gentle Fist AE to Durga's strength tricks

Update 3: traded in the impervious TOU (unused thus far) to get the multiattack on her unarmed damage, added wall-walking, fast grab and improved trip. also changed the picture as continues on her path of becoming the High Lemurian hybrid of Empowered & Rock Lee

Update 4: Modified Durga's motivation as she becomes more heroic, and having gotten Crinos' permission, added a new complication.

Update 5: Switched Durga's theme to "Pork Chop Express", upgraded the byakugan so Durga can see people's chi/chakra/spirit pressure/power level, and to reflect her training under relentless, consolidated her parry and unarmed combat into a solid fighting stat of 6.

Update 6: added analytical to the byakugan, and upped the notice by 2. also, new picture

Update 7: spent XP to up durga's languages for story reasons, changed picture yet again (this time for sure!)

Update 8: added regeneration, and shockwave punch

update 9: new picture

update 10: upped speed and leaping by 1 each

Update 11: major overhaul to bring durga up to PL 9, adding close combat: unarmed and evened out her other skills, raising her AGI and AWA to 4, and then raising her parry, dodge and will saves to 8. traded in gatling fist to afford 3 ranks of improved critical: unarmed, reduced other effects in the array to match shockwave punch, and added a deflect (set at +8 to match durga's defenses)

Update 12: traded in the improved crit 3 for the Iron fist and Conqueror's Haki, and traded out the analytical on the detect chi to combine with that last point for accurate


Update 13: added extended sight, improved hold

update 14: replaced reflection fist with sonic boom (Durga snapping her fingers with enough force to create a tiny shockwave)

Update 15: added darkvision, bumped iron fist's improved crit to 4 & added variable descriptor for it using either chi or Annihlation zone energy as well as physical attacks, changed Durga's picture, and modded her complications

Update 16: updated durga's backstory to include prominent in-game events

Update 17: raised Durga's regen to +4, changed theme music to Sirius

Update 18: upped Durga's thrown objects and regeneration, changed armor haki's variable to elemental, traded in all-out attack, power attack and diehard to up takedown to 2 and get assessment and improved grab. also added Wotan to her complications

Update: sacrificed a chunk of the feats of strength array, used it and the xp to buy a +12 attack via magic sword, and a communication link with Xova, folded into her Pactio card. for NPC notes, Xova is now able to summon Durga to her side so long as they're in a 10 KM radius of each other

update 20: realizing this may be my last chance for it to be relevant this campaign, Durga has gained water-walking

update 21: some major rejiggering, moving durga's enhanced STR and STA back into abilities proper, trading her movement abilities for flight 8, upping FIT to +8, and changing arma ultima into a ranged effect (plus the pactio ability to change her clothes)

Update 22: major refit, trading out Arma ultima and flight for a flying cloud, max AGI, upped pre by 1, a variable to adapt to any situation, also a pip of luck. also brought back durga's previous picture

Update FINAL: Upped saves to pl 10 caps, fit to 10, AGI to 10

Complications

Same Name, Different Person: Foxfire isn't the only hero or villain to take that name. He really doesn't know the others that share his name as he was a homeless drifter for the better part of three years.

Ugly: Foxfire is ugly. His skin has patches of mold growing on it, his is missing small amounts of bone and flesh, and he smells like mildew all the time. He wears heavy clothing and a burlap sack mask to hide his features and try to mitigate his smell.He will not remove his clothing or burlap sack mask with anybody present and will resist quite violently anyone who tries to do so.

Every Injury hurts more: Though Foxfire has regeneration. That regeneration is a quick stopgap by Shan to prevent Jared from dying. The more Jared is injured, the longer it will take for him and Shan to completely merge and for Jared to become basically human again. Basically, the more Jared gets injured the uglier and more putrid smelling he becomes.

One Body, Two minds: Jared and Shan are two different personalities and memories. Jared is more heroic while Shan is more pragmatic. They can argue sometimes and it sometimes seems to other people that Jared spaces out.

Uncle Jared: Jared has been adopted into Durga's father and helps take care of Evan.

Love Reign O'er Me: Jared and the High Lemurian Rothaga have become a couple.

Jared Lee Sewell is united with an alien fungal colony which calls itself Shan. Jared came upon Shan when he lost his arm up to his elbow due to a alligator attack. Miles away from help, Jared was sure that he was going to bleed out trying to get back home. Delusional from blood loss and shock, Jared collapsed by a rotted out log filled with foxfire as night fell. He closed his eyes for what he was sure was the last time when a bright light flashed across him coming from the foxfire. He heard a voice in his head that said it could save him if he would accept it and show it the world. Thinking this was nothing more then his mind finally going from loss of blood he accepted. The foxfire then exploded showering Jared with spores. Jared doesn't remember anything else as he passed out from shock.

Waking back up at dawn, Jared saw that he was still alive but changed. The voice, which now was in his head explained that while it was able to rebuild his arm, the process was not as smooth as hoped and the union of their biologies was "suboptimal". Instead of being normal, Jared now looked like a rotten corpse with small bits of bone and tissue missing. The voice told him that it had to take mass from somewhere to rebuild his arm. Staggering back into his small Louisiana town, Jared was met with cries of horror at his new appearance. He was soon run out of town since the townsfolk believed that he was a joker or taken over by a demon. They really never made their reasons clear.

Wandering through the south for almost three years, Jared picked up his layers of heavy clothing and burlap sack mask. He mostly drifted from town to town not saying long. He was just another one of the homeless. His smell was attributed to bad hygiene and his refusal to take off his mask was chalked up to mental illness. He was handed over to Avengers Academy after he was arrested by the Austin PD when he put two UT students in the hospital with severe fungal poisoning after they tried to beat him up for fun. The police found about his condition when they took off his mask to take a mugshot. The charges were dismissed after video evidence showed that Jared acted in self defense. The police though couldn't just someone with Jared's deadly abilities just walk out on the street though. They handed him over to Avengers Academy as a charity case since no one in his immediate family responded back to him. In fact, Jared was never reported missing or as a runaway.

An Atlantean warrior, Tula came from a dying earth, one ravaged by war between despotic versions of Atlantis and New Olympus. Tula herself was watching her own world crumble, as she'd become a prize to be won between her fellow warriors, Garth and Kaldur, unaware she only loved each of them like brothers. it was in this crisis that Tula fell victim to melody, a dimension-crossing sexual predator, who played to Tula's compassion with the empty promise that without her, Kaldur and Garth would have no reason to fight. Once she had Tula as her servant, however, melody betrayed Tula, breaking her will by making her watch garth and Kaldur murder each other instead, both boys dying thinking the other Tula's killer. spending years in the timeless space of melody's lair, Tula was finally freed by the Young Avengers of Earth-409, along with five of her fellow slaves. of these so-called "Dolls", Tula has taken the most to deprogramming, her heterosexuality and feisty attitude reasserting themselves. looking for time away from her 'sisters', Tula she formed a bond with Ronai and eventually entered into a Pactio with him.

Okay I really don't want Arthur's assistance here to go to waste but out of character I am trying to think of a method to actually conceal them. As a dinosaur turtle man, Beyn is not easy to hide.

My only idea which probably wouldn't work is under the forced silence moving some of those lockers and rip/smashing a hole in the wall to hide in then pulling the lockers back over the hole to cover it.

Suggestions? At the very least Beyn would want to ensure Whisper and Yokomon aren't captured with him.

Or HIVE might just assume Durga was the only intruder. Beyn could easily himself in a hole in the floor, Max could cover it up. Then they wait for HIVE to sweep by, before the three of them (and Gavin) follow HIVE to where they're keeping Durga-and, possibly Kamala.

Campe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campe)
Hekatonkheires (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hekatonkheires)Maybe characters based on Sisyphus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sisyphus), Tantalus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantalus), or Ixion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ixion)(mythological prisoners of Tartarus).

The Hecatonheiries already showed up in the Avengers finale, as some of the monsters imprisoned in the Greek Tartarus by Hades, and I portrayed them as being A) God Slayer monsters who even the Princesses were afraid of (And I mean paralyzed with feat scary), and B) Powerful enough even Novendecium couldn't take them in a fight.

I also always wanted to interpret them as Evangelion Angel like abominations, which are basically living moebius strips, and what we see of them is only part of their body, with the rest in 4D space.

The rest of the guys are good too.

I thought maybe some of the bad guys from the Adventure time Citadel, but I think a monster which can julienne a planet may be out of Celestia and Luna's weight class.

Actually, Sisyphus is around in the Crinoverse, in MTA. I'm going off the Scion version of him, he was freed from his eternal boulder rolling and given grand powers, due to the whole shake-up in the Greek Imageria realms what with the gods dying and being reborn a few years back. Basically, Hermes had said if he could complete one task, he would gain immortality and godly powers, only the task was impossible. Until recently.

so, I've been thinking of fleshing out the six Dolls, since its been long enough that they're asserting some individuality and DOC/Xiao/Twilight ETC can reverse some of what melody did to them, but I figured I should get some additional input, even just for names

what I have so far

1 - Core Details

there are six of them
crinos has named two of them, Joy and Juniper
they see durga as their 'alpha' in melody's absence, but still see melody as their 'mistress'.
I want them to have more character than 'durga's fangirl squad' or 'SEXSEXSEX', or otherwise reduce the inherent creepiness


2 - notions

one of them still genuinely loves Melody
one HATES what's been done to her, and by extension, the rest of the Dolls, Durga included
one of them joins durga's 'harem' proper, eventually, so clear difference from Xova or Wuchou
with melody being a d-hopper, its not impossible some of them are versions of existing characters (though not anybody at the academy, so nobody has to worry about running into themselves)

Anyway, if you want to give them slight differences, a lot can be accomplished by who they choose to be around. For example, the one that hates the situation could lead to hatred of abuse of power, and might hang around with Clover due to her extreme "lawful Neutral, the law applies to everyone equally" mentality. One might have an artistic bent and hang out with Rarity.

It's actually mentioned in the Golden Age sourcebook.

EDIT: Actually let's up the WTF-ery:
"Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength, and power. Not wanting to be girls, they don't want to be tender, submissive, peace-loving as good women are. Women's strong qualities have become despised because of their weakness. The obvious remedy is to create a feminine character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman." — Marston (as Wikipedia quotes)

Ysariel has also done some really good things with Skill challenges, where each round you are presented with different options at different difficulties - or you can choose your own option. You earn Successes and Failure, though the latter aren't always the result of failing your check. When you achieve a certain number of Successes before a certain number of Failures, you win the challenge.

Some challenges are combat related, some are not, while others are mixed. For example, we were faced with a large army of foes coming to attack us. I scored a success by using Pilot skill to draw them out of the city rather than attack them.

It's been a while since I've done any freeform roleplaying but I did a few back in high school when a friend of mine. I've thought that set character building system could have probably helped avoid overpowered characters and other sources of problems.

I personally enjoy the M&M games I'm in here quite a bit but I fully understand the desire for a little variety, especially for those who have been doing this much longer than I have, which is why I've joined things like crinos' past attempts at horror games and this one Fallout game that didn't really go anywhere. M&M is just not the right system for some things.

Of course I'm always willing to try something new, provided I can get access to the necessary rules and such. I've joined some wacky one shot games in the past and would be more than willing to try more new and interesting stuff.

not really sure what to suggest, as I've said I enjoy these games not for the combat itself, but the in-character interactions. the thulians weren't really meant to be combat monsters, I just made builds that sounded neat at the time

I mean, I can remove the improved crit from Durga, no problem, should make things a bit more challenging

Arthur Eld

Well, part of it is also getting the most mileage out of the bad guys.

For example, Salamander has a Reaction Damage effect that should come into play when Durga hits him. Likewise, Orfeas would have been better suited hidden somewhere since all his powers are Perception range.

Of course, the bad guys not taking full advantage of teamwork and not fighting smart is also a hallmark of the genre.

Let me use this opportunity to go over what I'd do if I were author of what happens to SK:

SK would get slip away undetected. Somewhere in the airship she's encounter something that has to be fought, and being the non-combat character she is she'd run away. The combatant would chase her, and along the way they'd break something important just as the Clockwork Orange was hovering near the Valley of Kings. Depending on the intelligence of the combatant there may be banter during the chase.

No rolling would happen: the whole point is to get to the Valley as spectacularly as possible. We can roll up a combat after the crash or we can roll an action race to get to the MacGuffin.

If I was gonna do it, off the top of my head, I'd use the character sheets to inform what the character can do. Have players post a description of what they do, then decide based upon what their actions are and the relative stats if they hit and then if they hurt someone. Or how good their skill is determine if and how well they succeed in a skill check. And adding in a hero or luck point would tip the scales on if something worked.

Because, well, let's face it, there are two ways to play. Either complete and total the dice fall where they may, or heroes are expected to succeed or fail any given section, and it kinda derails things if they don't.

In terms of "who wins an exchange" are you thinking there'd still be a GM running everything or is there some delegation of power to the players to make decisions or would we go GM-less? In any of those cases it's just an issue that you have to trust the person who gets to decide who wins will make an interesting decision.

I suppose we could keep Hero Points around and have them be spendable to "guarantee" a success on something: just spend them an BOOM you succeed at whatever it was you wanted to do.

Actually, I'm kinda liking the diceless thing so far, how is everyone else liking it?

The Doctor. His 'son' got rid of him, or so it seemed, and then Dr. Victor hung on long enough to return as a Promethean too - and cut a deal with Kreuzritter.

Arthur Eld

That's why I've always found it easier to refer to the Doctor as Frankenstein and his creation as the Monster.

Or Adam.

similarly, Kreuzritter himself is technically a PL-X so long as he's on Thule proper (or powerful enough to ROFLstomp the Psychotic Seven al at once after they woke him out of a coma). it was my idea/answer on the "so why hasn't anybody just come in and gotten rid of/overthrown Kreuzritter" besides genre conventions

also, given thule does have a pre-cog on site, I'm gonna be testing how diceless works when it doesn't go in our favor...

IE: Kahina seeing what's going to happen, and starts combat by shooting into the box

Okay, so, I was taking with a friend, and I think I have a one shot campaign idea someone has to run at some point. Me if it comes to it. We were talking about Wolverine's upcoming death, and how it was kind of a joke at this point. And how Marvel should bring him back, and jokingly mentioned the bit in Hercules where did Superhoeres where in an afterlife in the casino, and hitting the Jackpot meant you came back to life.

And the idea came up, Wolverine should come back to life by robbing the Casino of the underworld. Ocean's Eleven Style. Which a team made up of dead heroes and a villain or two (I suggested Ogun to add conflict. And on the off chance somehow this idea get to Marvel, you have my full permission to steal this idea).

And I started thinking... that is too awesome a premise to waste, and wondering if it could be turned into a one shot campaign with original characters.

Just throwing that out there.

...that sounds awesome. If anyone is running this sing me the hell up.

*Blink* that gives me an idea... *blink* that idea reminds me of another thing which also gives me an idea.

Now my first thought was "you could do a prison break plot from the after life" it would not be as original as breaking the underworld casino as we've seen that kind of thing before. But then I remembered an animated short called the Saga of Biorn (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MV5w262XvCU) which was about a viking seeking death in battle to earn his place in Valhalla.

Now my idea has spoilers for that video so if you want to watch it without knowing the ending click that link before you read further.

Right spoilers: Biorn ends up being buried using christian burial rites and gets stuck in the Christian afterlife rather than the Norse one. Much to his dismay.

So my thought is doing a prison break out of heaven with a collection of characters that have either been shoved into the wrong afterlife or just find that paradise is not as good as advertised. Or maybe they have unfinished business in the world of the living. Coming up for a reason why someone would want to leave heaven has all kinds of potential.

Also a note to Arthur, since you're having Whisper attack Orpheas in close combat.

I had Beyn going to club him with the body of Mechausen in my last post. Either way deadboy is going to get his arse kicked and Whisper will be free to do the thing with the crystals and the stuff.

4. Turn on the Evil Eye and drop it in the crystal powder
5. RUN!

Durga does the deed instead, bringing her uninjured leg up to bring her foot between Kreuzritter's legs with enough force to surely knock an ordinary man into HALO distances.


Mega: I have been asked by your instructors to go over what went wrong with yesterdays battle. Now listen up, because this is very important. When you are going to kick a dictatorial madman in the joy department, you always call me first so I can watch. And, if need be, deliver follow up kicks. Are we all clear on this?

On a different note, plans for catching Maus, Her parents, and deflecting a cow?

Because I'm tempted to have Beyn leap out of the Quinn Jet, Rocket boot the cow and use the momentum and his rocket boots to get him back to the quinn jet.

Suggestions on how to incorporate catching Maus and family into this plan would be appreciated.

Also which characters are still conscious and have applicable powers for this situation?

If need be, I can have him wake up and using his failing Weather Magic to save Maus and family.

Ronai and Durga are out.

I was thinking that Beyn could hold Foxfire outside the ship, Foxfire hits the cow with spore as the cow is probably dead already from the vacuum of the cyclone, Gavin can have Logar speed up time so that the cow completely rots away before hitting the jet.

Dina could whip up some sort of teleport beacon and have SK and Inseckt teleport to Maus place the beacon on her and then teleport them to Avengers Island or something.

Not sure how much time that would take. Even jury rigging takes 1 round per point. And has a -5 to the roll.

I have to admit I was pretty concerned at first. I felt like we wouldn't contribute as much to the story without dice. But now I don't think that is the case; I doubt very much Crinos original ending for the story involved Ronai tapping into the power of the crystal and using that to stun Kruezritter. I am willing to keep going this way.

And on a side note, it will be very nice to not have two Kruezritter's in the game again.
