    2. Do you possess the self control to use this power safely?

    Maybe... I'd like to think I could be safe, at least most of the time.

    3. Despite your wanting to help, are you still a threat just by existing?

    Partly... to the same degree as a man with a gun is a threat, except my gun can't be taken away.

    4. Would your power be considered "evil" (so to speak)?

    Difficult to determine... Maybe if it was more versatile it could be considered good, but just throwing fire?


    I think I might just qualify...

    Let's see, I started with Psychic Creation. Cool, I'm basically like Green Lantern, but without a weakness to yellow or wood. I think I'll do that 3 power thingy, though.

    Kinetic Energy Absorption- I can literally take any punch thrown at me.
    Transformation- Pretty self-explanatory.

    I think we should start comparing how powers would fare against one another. But, ah, re-roll if you've got world destroying/reality warping powers. That's unfair.

    On two more "rolls", I picked up Enhanced Leadership (yay, I'm charismatic; is that a power?) and Volatile Constructs. Okay then, now I can make electrified bombs with rock from geokinesis as insurance.

    Let's see what I get.

    History Manipulation. Well this is pretty awesome, I can literally alter the course of history. I can create my more what if scenarios and then play them out, hell with this power I can do pretty much everything I could ever want. Plus it seems that HistoryAbsorption is an application of History Manipulation which looks pretty awesome by itself.

    So far I can be the ultimate hero or villain, just by editing the course of events that transpire. This power is pretty good by itself by lets roll for the other two.

    Martial Arts Intuition. Ok so now I am the ultimate martial artist, I guess its a good power but nowhere in the tier of History Manipulation. I guess I can star in my one action movies, or make money in MMA or something. Beware my fists of fury, for they can edit you from existence. Alright last roll.

    Cosmic String Manipulation. So now I can also time, space, and dimension hop while also being able to change whatever I want by tugging on the cosmic strings something is attached to as long as it is not a gas.

    Hmm I think we should create a new group. A group for those with cosmic entity like powers, a Pantheon of sorts.

    The rules didn't change at all. One person with a shoddy power decided to roll 2 more times, which defeats the purpose of one random power (it's a lottery; you win or you lose), and everyone followed suite.

    Anyone who rerolls is virtually guaranteed to fail LUTAS membership, but will probably be more fleshed out and interesting as a superhero. If you are still bound to take the three it doesn't necessarily defy the point of a lottery, but it's certainly not nearly as 'all-or-nothing' as the one roll.

    It's not as fun, either. Especially when you've got people rolling once, getting a world-ending power, and rolling two more times, or a person rolling with the power to grow another toe, and rolling a few more times to be able to throw planets.

    True. I kind of thought the rerolling thing would have been interesting so I tried it for kicks, and I ended up OP'D as ****. Personally I like forcefeilds. I mean, I can FORCE CHOKE A BITCH if I wanted to be evil! I can go surfing, paragliding, rock climbing, and all with out tools.

    I'm good with my first power, and happily get rid of the other two.... I mean that second one is like the entire word is screaming out, "EAT ME! YOU'RE MESSIN' WITH THE ORDER MAN! EAT ME!"

    And the second one is rather redundant for me. >.<

    Rolling twice more seemed fun, especially since the first (two) powers I got were quite dull; even Aquaman was better.

    But the additional two powers generally means you're going to end up super-powerful regardless. I did a re-roll and ended up with undead physiology and critical impact. That is essentially a game breaker right there.

    I say roll three times and pick one power that cannot warp reality or end life on Earth. That fair?

    My third power would be game breaking however.

    I think that the random power generator may have balance issues.
