  • [3e OOC] Runner up One Shot, Freedom City (Full)

    This is a one shot for those folks who did not make it into Plan B's Freedom League 2020 game. Only characters who submitted to that game are eligible for this game. (Unless too few of them sign in here.) So anyone eligible to join, post your "yes I'm interest" status along with a link to your character in Plan B's thread.

    Remember, this is a one shot. I have a few set pieces in place and afterward, I'll probably start a game in world of my making. I want a bit of GMing experience before running that game.

        I'm certainly interested. This could be a wild experiment, depending on just how many of the applicants join in.

                I'll probably pick 5 or 6 pcs on Monday night. And I'm sorry to anyone who misses the cut again. Then I'll open the IC thread Tuesday or Wednesday. Since this is a one shot, I'm going to assume either the group is a present version of the Freedom League. Or a the heroes are generally soloists who sometimes join together for bigger problems. Either will work.

                  Responsibility: Balancing day and night jobs can be tough for anyone. Much like with his Brother in Arms, Brian has a deep loyalty to the people he employs.

                  Background Comments:
                  Five years ago Commander Brian Thomas was serving on the USS Daedalus, a nuclear submarine stationed out of the Fort Brewer Naval Base in Emerald City. The Daedalus was a prototype stealth submarine that implemented a new alien energy source. During test trials the vessel was boarded by Power Corp. Something went wrong during the heist and the containment shields were breached. CDR Thomas was trapped on the Engineering Deck with three other men as the crew of the Daedalus was ordered to abandon ship.

                  CDR Thomas and the others were recovered by a Search and Rescue team ... twenty miles west of the Daedalus’s last known position. Brian was paralyzed and an exhaustive search failed to recover any of the other the men. The submarine itself was lost in the ocean’s dark depths. After months of moderately successful therapy, Brian was put on the Temporary Disability Retirement List. Over the next year he slowly regained use of his limbs and used Disability Pay to begin a start up business specializing in environment survival equipment.

                  Working late one night on upgrading a surveillance gear, Brian watched as a fire trapped a number of homeless on the roof of an abandoned high rise near the docks. One moment he was finishing the high tech mask in his workshop, the next fire was licking at the roof of the building he was sinking into. The same feeling he had when he was paralyzed of being immensely heavy flowed through his body and he panicked the memory of water rushing into the irradiated engineering compartment. Swimming upward gasping for air, suddenly he was rising through the roof above the broken burnt timbers.

                  Soon after Brian was working with Aegis in Emerald City. For two years he was given access to funds and research even the navy hadn't had at their disposal. He took that technology and engineered them into upgraded power suits that allowed Aegis to operate safely anywhere between the ocean depths to the edge of outer space. For two years his business thrived and when needed he assisted Aegis as the hero known as Darkstar. And on one such recent mission, the Lighthouse had just been assaulted and while it was Darkstar who helped free the Lor hostages, it was Brian that stayed behind assisting with repairs and it was Daedalus who invited him to visit ... just to see how things were done in the big city

                  For the pst few weeks Brian has been getting to know the city while setting up the east coast of StarCorp “Making tomorrow’s technology ready today.” Right now it was little more than an empty warehouse being renovated for assembling and testing prototype technologies focused on updating military and law-enforcement special op needs. The DarkStar suit only worked so well because of the energy he had absorbed in the hijacking of the Daedalus. His environmental designs were sound, but could only negate the effects of one environment at a time due to power consumption. Aegis was still testing his EVA design, but initial test were promising.

                  One of the biggest bonuses of buying the warehouse on the docks was having a place to dry dock the Brotherhood. It was more functional than flashy. The Coast Guard had retired all it’s 41’ UTBs a few years ago and Brian spent a few hours each day renovating the old boat while the work crews were doing the same to the warehouse. Friday afternoons he had been grilling lunch for the construction teams but was going to have to think of something else with the weather turning cold.

                  Build Comments:
                  Concept is a naval engineering officer with high intellect who gains his powers due to the alien energy source. At first he is thought to be paralyzed and is medically discharged. Eventually he gains control of the Density/Matter Manipulation (stealing a Henry Pym concept of adding/shunting and traveling through dimensional movement). For a couple years works with Aegis until his start up is solid and moves his business to Freedom City to join the team with a recommendation from Aegis.

                  I decided to go a different route than normal. This isn't a hero who is new to the job. He hasn't had any earth shaking encounters yet but he's been around the block and proved himself to those who are Connected or in the know. I gave him enough leadership abilities to be helpful to a team but not necessarily a team leader. Definitely not the team "face" with his Persuasion lol. I gave him enough business savvy to earn his millions but low enough they could disappear if GM wants to take a story line that direction. Hopefully enough roleplay threads to pull on to be interesting. I'd like to slip in a romantic relationship but need to time to come up with something better than Mary Jane. MCU Janet VanDyne is an interesting character type but that needs GM input.

                    [ url="link goes here"]text describing link goes here, optionally[/url] So you would go to the Darkstar post in the other thread and where it says #113 on that post you right click and select "copy link address" and paste it where "link goes here" is. Leave out the space between "[" and "img]"

                    And to embed your boat:

                    But don't bother doing any of that now. We should copy the characters over here anyway once my game starts.

                              Your character adds up to 166. You have Luck 6. 4 is the maximum at PL9. So you save two points there.

                              Your bots have a 45 point array but the eyebeam power, as wriiten, is 46 points. Taking away a level of improved critical seems like the simplest fix.

                              The minions also seem to built on 110 points. Note, the bots do not have Will 9 they have Will NONE because they lack Int and Pre.
                              Intellect: A creature with no Intellect is an automaton, lacking free will and operating entirely on simple instinct or pre-programmed instructions. Anything with no Intellect is immune to mental effects and interaction skills and has no Will defense.
                              Presence: Creatures without Presence are unable to interact and immune to interaction skills. They have no Will defense.
                              Also the area of effect blast powers say they work out to 45 feet but AOE Blast 1ppr is 30 feet and 2ppr is 60 feet. So the reaction triggers are at the edge of the blast radius.


                              1 down....
