    Teal for speech.


    Spoiler: Background
    Show

    Ryu Anderson was a pretty normal, bland person of average physique, intellect, and family background. His last name was odd, but was a remnant from his grandfather being an American immigrant. Probably the only real thing of note about him was that he didn't know what he wanted to do with his life -- nothing really caught his interest -- so he studied a lot of different things.

    Which led to him failing the college entrance exams since he was so distracted at studying for those.

    So he wound up slightly disgraced in his family's eyes and working as a waiter and dishwasher at a restaurant.

    And, as happens from time to time, some villain kidnapped everyone in the place and starting experimenting on them. Rambled about temporal mechanics, quatum realities, and "power beyond the scope of mortal man." Assuming he'd be dead soon, Ryu was pretty accepting of it all.

    And then some heroes came to rescue, there were explosions, and most everyone was saved if injured. Ryu wasn't saved; he was buried in the rubble and presumed dead.
    Until he finally dug his way out a week later, completely unscathed.

    After some failed medical analysis on him, it appears he was a success (of a sort), and (at least in most ways) immune to external effects of time or external pressures upon his body. So he didn't age, couldn't be hurt, and didn't need to breathe or eat or drink.

    For the first time in his life, he felt excited. He could be a Hero!


    Spoiler: Mechanics
    Show

    0 points Abilities, 118 Powers, 2 advantage

    Abilities
    Strength 0
    Stamina 0
    Dexterity 0
    Agility 0
    Fighting 0
    Intellect 0
    Awareness 0
    Presence 0

    Will probably buy up Fighting and mental abilities to represent training as game progresses. Will consider physical stats locked to 0 per temporal lock.

    Powers
    Power: Immunity from Temporal Lock
    80 points Immunity: Toughness immunity
    30 points Immunity: Fortitude immunity (covers food, water, aging, suffocation, etc.)
    8 points: Enhanced Strength 4, Permanent (stronger than he'd normally be, if not superhuman strong, since muscles do not tear or wear down)

    Will plan to buy something like Deflect or Enhanced Parry to represent training in tanking hits for allies, but figure that can wait.

    Advantages
    Jack of all Trades (miscellaneous training through his mundane life)
    Fearless (his new-found power and excitement make him ignore threats, maybe even ones he shouldn't ignore)



    ---

    Have we met each other before, or know of each other? I think it'd be easier if we at least know of each other, unless you plan on something happening to make us realize each other are heroes. I'm fine either way.

    "Amelia" (no last name given) speaks in bold fire brick, a good approximation of her telekinetic color.

    Spoiler: Nōshuku Saikuron (Concentrated Cyclone)
    Show
    A distant cousin of more famous and powerful Espers, Saikuron is a telekinetic slowly working her way up the ranks with odd jobs when money gets tight. Her "on the edge of the same family photo" style of fame means she's got a bit of experience seeing heroes working up close at various ranks, and has had her share of encounters with people looking to "get in close" that's left her wary and perceptive when it comes to ulterior motives...although sometimes she's just paranoid. She just wants to live her life but keeps getting hounded by people in a way that reminds her of how far she falls behind.

    Spoiler: Attributes/Defenses (34)
    Show
    Sikuron has gained a general sense of how to keep moving during a fight, but she's still clearly dependent on her force field to keep her safe when danger calls. The most significant trait she has, as is common for espers, is a mind like a steel vault.

    Will 11 (+11)


    Spoiler: Skills/Advantages (28)
    Show
    Saikuron has a passive awareness of her surroundings due to keeping a telekinetic hand on basically everything nearby, making it very difficult to sneak up on her. Her experience sussing out true friends from wannabes seeking their lame claim to fame, as well as her work with heroes from a bunch of different ranks, has left her with a razor-sharp instinct for lies and power levels. While she's not usually much of a liar, there's one advantage to her family problems that she exploits ruthlessly: everyone and their mother knows what an esper giving her all is truly capable of, and can't help but hesitate when they see her powers flair up in power along with her emotional reactions. She knows they don't know exactly how powerful she is, don't know whether her rank is representative of her power or just her laziness as a hero thus far, and she exploits it whenever she thinks it can give her an advantage.

    Spoiler: Powers (58)
    Show
    Saikuron has a variety of telekinetic tricks she's picked up, and while her power is something to behold when she focuses on one to the exclusion of the others, it often leaves her overly-specialized and unable to deal with other incoming problems. All her telekinetic effects emit a sharp red aura.

    Forcefield (Protection plus gradually improving immunities)
    Flight (speed gradually improves)
    Super-Senses related to telekinetically sensing objects (range gradually improves)
    Move Objects (total mass gradually improves)
    MO-based Damage (gradually gets modifiers making it a cooler attack).

    • TK Barrage
    • TK Flight

    Below are the five powers presented in their pure focused forms. We will basically never see all 48 points in a single power like this, it'll usually be in some arrangement or another (a few examples of which I'll list in the OOC thread sometime tomorrow probably).

    Think normally DM is supposed to roll both privately to prevent me metagaming the rolls but then again, it's not like this particular assessment roll is anything but fluff.

    So far it works either way. I can see my guy saying his current words whether he's already applied or if he's not yet applied.
    That said, I'd vote for already applied, as going through the tests sounds a bit boring (if humorous in hearing NPC responses) since we already know what the tests are from watching the show.

    You need dedication to be C class. But that's not enough for B class, you also need skill. Skills not enough for A class, you also need style. Style's not enough for S class...you also need raw power.

    That's why I say A-class.maybe you'll have the power for S-class.one day sure. But you've already got style for days!

    Argh I hate multi-posting but I just had to mention: a person with a +15 to persuasion who tries to improve somebody's attitude and rolls a 20 improves the targets attitude four steps (DC 15=1, DC 25=2, DC 35=3, and then nat 20=+1 degree). That's enough to get somebody from Hostile to Helpful. And I see that Smooth Criminal has +15 against those attracted to him...is that intentional or just a coincidence?

    Also, I found this video which helped clear a few things up for me about combat in Mutants and Masterminds;

    1. Roll Initiative:
    Initiative is d20+Initiative bonus (Agility)
    2. Hit stuff:
    D20 plus bonuses
    vs
    (Either same roll for Enemies OR just 10+Enemy defense*) *Parry for melee, dodging for ranged
    3. Don't get hit:
    1d20+Toughness
    vs
    (Either same roll OR just 15+Damage)

    4. You got hit:
    1 degree of failure = -1 to future Toughness checks (stacks)
    2 degrees of failure = -1 to future TGH checks, and Dazed
    3 degrees of failure = -1 to future TGH checks, and Staggered.
    4 degrees of faliure = Incapacitated.

    And so on.

    I am a bit shakey on the rules of M&M for combat. Does Strength add to my accuracy, or is it just to the DC of the Toughness roll they make?
    Fighting improves your melee accuracy, Strength improves your melee damage.

    Our first round's actions can sometimes be declared upon initiative roll, but if we don't act first, people acting before us can change how we're wanting to act. It's unfortunate that this is one of many things that slows down the pbp process, though, and depending on how things go this time, it might be prudent to establish something like this for fights in the future.

    Given this is the One Punch Man setting, there is nothing illegal or likely to backfire about killing random monsters, correct? ("Likely to backfire" excluding having allied monsters attack us later. I'm talking about bad reputation, legal ramifications, etc.)

    OPM setting seems pretty clear that supers are not liable for property damage and stuff like that. Or, if they are, the Hero Organization takes care of all that so that heroes can focus on being heroes.

    For our group: I don't think Ryu is in a good position to make the killing blow, but I have no qualms IC or OOC about us finishing the orc off.

    Related question: in OPM, is it illegal to kill humans who display powers but aren't monsters? I'm thinking of folk like that ninja-assassin that Saitama basically toys with in one episode of season 1. Guy is obviously working illegally and outside the hero network, but he is human. Would it be criminal to kill him?

    I think it's a moral/public interest issue. It's one thing to kill the monsters, but if you start killing human villians suddenly people would distrust heroes a lot more, especially in low monster-ridden areas.

    Essentially you'd risk creating Owlman.

    Apologies for the double post, and for dragging out killing this orc. I wasn't sure if one of the other characters wanted to question it to see if we were in the Monster Association arc, though I suppose we'll find evidence of that soon enough, one way or the other.

    Do I need to know what arc that is?
    I've only seen season 1 of OPM as on Netflix, so I'm probably on the ignorant side of a fair bit.

    FYI that I'll be traveling for work next week and then doing family vacation the two weeks following. I should be able to check-in while traveling for work, but aren't sure of my internet access for the next two.
