    Here are some additions I thought of for Kei's powers.
    Spoiler
    Show

    Allowing Kei to generate an aura of feelings around him that are much less hampering than the full force of his ability initially. The aura could quickly expand over an increasingly large area and the more time people spend within it the greater they would be affected by it. People with little or no mental resistance could be rendered unconscious if Kei wished it but only if they spent a substantial amount of time inside of the affected area without leaving. Even strong espers could succumb to such a degree but they'd take much longer to do so. They could take hours or days if they were strong enough or perhaps ignore his aura altogether. In addition Kei would be able to exclude people from the effects of the aura if he first memorized some form of their mental/physical signature. I'd like to think there's a way of excluding people without memorizing their AIM signature since Callos pointed out that was something pretty drastic and the ability to do that could allow certain people to mimic the powers of others with their own. Even if Kei could memorize that type of signature I'd say he couldn't copy anything because his ability is simply too specific/specialized to imitate others. One other power I'd like to give him is the option to slightly affect people he has recorded in his mind with his powers across great distances without being able to see them and without using his aura. This use of his power would be something that can be effortlessly resisted by anyone. It'd be used to give someone a psychic poke as a signal or to give a person some benefits of his power. After talking to Vael for a bit I labeled Kei as a level 4 instead of 5 but now I'd kinda like to have him be a 5 once more. He's still plenty weak in combat relative to his level. The main thing is that he's no longer completely ineffective against people he can't see for whatever reasons. I like the idea of him being Azabu's much weaker ace parallel to Tokiwadai's Rin. I picture his aura being used to calm a large group of civilians in a disaster shelter without looking at them, to add ambiance to an area just by being in it such as a commercial area to help business or to slowly weaken the resolve and fighting effectiveness of nogoodnicks holding up in some area trying to resist security forces.

    Of course feel free to say whatever you wish to say.

    I am against it for any reason I think. Only because of 'plot point' is maybe it okay. There should not be 'genius gunsmith' or 'black market firearms' here. It is Academy City. Most of characters are Junior High School or High School students.

    That is my opinion on this.

    There's little point for most characters to have guns. Just being known to have one puts a character into 'wanted criminal' category. What would many characters do with them in the first place? Either they already have lethal applications for their ESP abilities, or they don't have a reason to think about or engage in life-and-death combat in the first place.

    Just because the source material involves a lot of fighting, doesn't mean it should be a priority to think how characters would match up against each other in a fight. Vast majority of character interaction will likely be non-violent anyway.

    Pretty much.

    So, riccaru...the current consensus on firearms unfortunately a "no". I personally might be okay with maybe one more Level 0 characters who happens to pack maybe 1 9mm handgun, but I doubt that everyone else would agree with me.

    I'll be scaling Ikisawa back as well. In hind-sight that plot point is served just as well with just one gun (maybe a second as a back-up) and just supplies of non-lethal stuff to go along with it. Should make him a bit less...ridiculously well armed. ^_^;

    I was thinking maybe gravity control, but that seems too straight forward and boring...

    Actually, I had an idea for a character with gravity control. It's actually more interesting than you think.

    And controlling fluids would be cool.

    It means your character would magically understand how liquid substances, or substances that can be expected to move like liquid substances (such as crowd of humans, or a flow of superheated gas), flow from on place to another!

    Probably this. I'd suspect that's where your comedy act got it from as well. As this is circa 1968.
