    I honestly don't know where I went off the rails. I went looking through the ATT for my original wording and it was apparently originally set it as a 15 then... I dunno, forgot at one point and said it was 10?

    House Rules are slowly but surely getting a bit of an overhaul, particularly in the area of powers. There's some powers I'm not too keen on and might only allow under certain instances. I'm hoping to address those.

    At the moment, I'm working on backgrounds, in the hopes of posting some characters in rapid fire succession, then promptly ignore the thread for about six weeks, as is protocol.

    Re: Oubliette

    I went back to check out stuff you should move over from the ATT Settings thread, the Timeline definitely looks useful to copy/paste - and update for the several NVAE issues we've played since.
    Impeach the peach!

    It's actually next on my list. My edits to the book include some small NS stuff happening--like someone getting fired for being a Neo-Sapien, then coming back to attack the work place. These small incidents will be speckled into the existing timeline, to better legitimize the anti-NS argument.

    Re: Oubliette

    I'm posting the timeline now and will continue to edit it as I go (mostly I'm adding the links, filling in some of my pre-campaign events to flesh out the world a bit), but I wanted to take the temperature of how it's organized: is the New Age section too lengthy? Should that be split by year? Like...

    That would likely make it a bit easier to read in all honesty.

    Yeah, three seconds after I posted that, I realized, "Why would I not do this?"

    Looking at it now, I'm wondering if it would be overkill to divide some years (2008/2009) by months even...

    Yeah, I think we all have that moment happen when posting things here. I know I have a few times.

    Given all that has happened in some of those months, it might be a good idea.

    Edit: I see you already had one of those "why didn't I?" moments again.

    Well, I kind of wanted to be able to look at it both ways, so... I left 2008 together, but divided 2009 by month. That way, people can look at it and see if 2009 looks like overkill, or if it's easier to navigate than 2008 is.

    Fair enough. Personally I like the years broken down by months, but that's just the organizational freak in me speaking.....
