Male Enigma/20

Ok everyone, here is your chance to finish tweaking your characters and determine what, if any, contact you may have had with eachother previous to the campaign opening. I would also like to point out that the maximum effective Power level after chracter creation for everyone, is 14.

Edit: ALlso, everyone escaped during the same event. The amss uprising of their superhuman population was more than Tallow Genetics was capable of handling at the time.


Woot! Thanks for the pick Trup.

I'd envisioned Vamp as being a loner to begin with. Due to the fact that he didn't escape until shortly after the event, and that he avoids most people he's unaware of any other people with powers. Besides the mercenaries who came to kill him. Did we decide how long after the breakout that the game is starting?


Male Enigma/20

About 10 years after the breakout. I assumed most people broke out when they were young, chidlren to teenagers, but really it's up to you on the age you escaped.


Thanks for inviting me to play! This is DQ with Rosa. I revised her background slightly (mostly for clarity).

I haven't received any comments on the build and as I'm only somewhat familiar with 3rd ed I'd appreciate a review and to be sure there's nothing missing or something you think I should add or alter. I can also be more clear or detailed with complications. Thanks.


Male Enigma/20

No need, I liked the build and could find no glaring issues with it.


robertness checking in with brand new alias for Kit. I'll get the profile updated after work. And because my mind can be kind of sieve-like, I'll repost the character selection here to avoid clicking back-and-forth to the recruiting page.

Miss Lilly Ann Mills aka Subject 27 akaStar Light: Played by spugly_fuglet.


Hello everyone! I am pleased to be here and look forward to a fun adventure!

Trup, I sent you a PM.

Now, as to Marcus knowing any of the others, if you Marcus' background would work well with how you would know him I am more than happy to work that out. I will be looking at all the backgrounds to see if anything might stick out to me that would work in his knowing them.

Looking forward to the game!


Male Enigma/20

So just waiting on two people to check in. Everyone let me know when they are ready for the opening.


I feel that Marcus could easily start knowing Rosa. He has worked at a hospital and that would give a good tie in.

Let me know what you think.

Star_Light here Thanks for Picking me GM, I get the feeling with the great PCs built and some fine players you also picked (Hope I am as good) we will have a great game going.


I've loaded the crunch to Kit's profile, as well as picture links and a link to the background document.

As the backgrounds are written right now, I don't really see much chance for any of our characters meeting before the breakout event. I'm willing to entertain suggestions for background tweaks and post breakout character links.

Vixen:
Per chance would Marcus have worked security any place other than the hospital? There might be some fun in Marcus and Kit meeting "on the job" as it were some time in the past.


Zouron here with the new alias.

I should be done tweaking my character unless someone finds a huge glaring flaw (I doubt there is one but hey you never know).

As for backgrounds I doubt many of us have meet, Kit most likely ran into people working with street crime or volunteer work in a youth center or finally it is possible that she and her friends have been the look out for other criminals or possibly made a distraction for the police to focus on, but other then that I doubt it.


Male Enigma/20

Dissapearing for the day! Hopefully everyone will be ready sometime tommorrow.

Lilly may have seen Kit at the school she works at but she would have no idea they had a shared past event, Lilly would also do any thing but let others know of where and when she came from. At the lab she may have seen some others but she was very locked in her own world back then and so would not have really taken not, but she may know a face or two.

Could we get a Time zone call
I'm GMT +8

** spoiler omitted **

This is doable. I like that idea and I can write that into his background if you are interested.

Definitely! Either when she was an EMT or when she was doing rounds for her nursing training would be quite likely. Either way, she has a reputation for most injury victims in her hands surviving. Should they know of each other as Tallow escapees?

For the last year or so, Rosa's been working at a free clinic serving inner city youth and women, so it's possible they might have crossed paths.

I would say that he might have come across Rosa as he made his way through the Tallow complex before he left. If you want to we can start with having at least seen each other. Or, if you want, we can write a little "scene" for our backgrounds as to how we met during the escape.

What do you think?


To those with more knowledge of the system, I have a question about one of Marcus' powers.

Communication: Radio Communication 3

Does this apply only to radio? Or can I have it apply to multiple types without choosing another power? Cause when I look at the Senses: Senses 3 (Radio) power it says I can hear different means of communication.

Basically, if I had to choose between one or the other I think I would choose the cellular signal.

Once this is clarified and I learn the results of any story hook alterations I need to make I will be done and ready for gameplay.


Cell phones use radio frequencies to communicate. As does pretty much everything.


Well! That answers that. Thanks.


Time check for me is GMT -5, Eastern US.

Going to throw this out for Vixen's consideration:

Kit and Marcus's First Encounter?:

I'm thinking more of a "Oh, crap! It's you!" reaction when they meet in game than "So we meet again long time adversary." This is what I have in mind:

Sometime after the breakout and shortly after Kit started working with Jean-Pierre, Marcus was working as a guard at location TBD. Jean-Pierre and some associates were trying to swipe the McGuffin from the location. Since it was one of Kit's first jobs, Jean-Pierre didn't want to risk having her enter the vault where the McGuffin was stored. Therefore, Kit drew the task of keeping the guard in the lobby from watching the video monitors for five crucial minutes. As luck would have it, Marcus was on lobby duty that night. He didn't keep that job for very long after the McGuffin was discovered missing because he couldn't explain why he didn't notice the guys in black outfits and ski masks on the vault door monitor.

Since Marcus lost his job over this episode (it was a crap job anyhow, the hospital is much nicer), I'll even let you take the lead with details of how Kit distracted him.

Naturally, I'm looking forward to comments and suggestions for making that mini-scenario fit your concept of Marcus's character.

Very plausible, Kit herself doesn't need the place (nor enter it willingly) but she could be rather memorable... considering she runs around with a 8 feet long nearly a foot wide cloth wrapped object across her back...

Following the idea of a scenario (above) it would probably be more along the lines:

I'm outta here:

The day at the clinic wasn't any different then the normal, all in all it had been a pretty normal day that was until at just past 10pm when a panting youth came in shouting, "We need a doctor here!" the young boy had greasy hair and a panicked look on his face that stood in contrast with the hard look he tried to project in his black leather jacket and worn jeans, he didn't wait for a respond shouting to the door "Damnit Kit! Get him in here he might die!" three youth slowly came through the door, one was a petite girl shoving a slightly taller girl who held a third, a boy, awkwardly in her arms. The boy was much taller then both the girls and maybe 17 or 18 years old, he was unconscious possibly not even breathing, but as impossible as that looked the weirdest sight was the fact the girl whom must have been "Kit", not only carried the tall youth but also had a massive cloth bundle swung across her back, it was half again as tall as her and nearly a foot wide. The girl kit looked around like a hunted rabbit and as soon as the nurses and a doctor came running she put the boy down carefully then pushed her way past the protesting petite girl making her stagger several paces backwards. Kit left the clinic hurriedly with the words, "I'm outta here!"

If you take Communication -> Talk to machines as well, you can then encrypted in Digital and call some one up, you can understood whats being said v radio and even hop into Wifi to look things up v cool.


I had to make an adjustment as hero lab was giving me a warning about his toughness being too high for the power level. I adjusted his stamina and put the points into strength. That gave me a warning about his unarmed being too high so I shifted the skill point into perception. I was kinda wanting just a bit more in those areas so it works out. I also added another complication as it works for what I had written in the background.

I should have a tie-in for Kit Reynard sometime tomorrow. Getting tired and my creative side is going to sleep.

Time zone: Central Time UTC-6.

Oops forgot: I'm on US Eastern Time which I think is GMT-5.

Will respond to y'all's scenarios a little later, got to run to work.

GMT - 8

I see everyone is getting thier pasts in order. Awesome.


I'm gonna be on vacation from 27th-6th, so my posting will be low during that time. I'd like to start before I leave, but I guess I could come in when I get back or something. Don't exactly know what you have planned Trup.

I'm fine with not being there at first, or being NPCed while I'm gone if we start before. I might be able to post a couple times while I'm away, just not every day.


the background adjustment for my character anyway, doesn't seem to bring a major impact so far so I am pretty much ready.

I think that makes sense -- I know she would have tried to help others escape and otherwise would have seen more in the process. They likely went their separate ways shortly thereafter, but would be able to recognize each other -- although her name would be new to him.

She would not want to think much about her past, but would probably talk to him briefly, ask how he was--with legit concern, but then as long as all was well, want to disengage.

I like it. Gives her an unusual person to have logged in her mind that she'd recognize her again but may not have made the connection to Tallow.


Glad you liked it, feel free to expand on it if you want. As for the boy he probably O.D'ed on something.

One connection that could spark a memory though is the sight of a six year old kid dragging around a sword more then twice her size :p But yeah it works just fine as just a chance meeting as well :)


Male Enigma/20

Anyone have any objections to me opening the game thread?


Trup, not at all. I am ready to get this moving.

Robertness, I am kinda struggling with the tie-in for our characters. Tell you what, if you want to flesh it all out I am ok with that. For some reason I am not getting any vibe for it.

Make up a little story and I will see how I like it. Would that be ok?


Ready to go Trup!


The sooner the better. My vacation clock is ticking.


Male Enigma/20

Ok then... I will post it soon, It may take me a little bit so we will see.


No worries on the tie in between Kit and Marcus not working. Just a random thought that I wanted to test. Nothing says we all need to be connected.

I noticed a parallel between the Kits' backgrounds that might be fun to exploit.

Deja Vu All Over Again:
Time frame: a couple months before game start.

It's like looking in a mirror, Kit Reynard thought as she watched the street kid enter the drugstore in the office building's lobby. Weird time travel mirror showing what I was like after I escaped from the lab. Admittedly, she's way cuter than I was and I'd never try to rock that huge ass fugly backpack. I think that's a backpack. Must weigh as much as she does.

Kit went back to her shopping when she noticed the girl swiping a bag of cheesy puffs and shoving it in her jacket. Kit had swiped too many meals from convenience stores to judge the girl, but that wouldn't stop the store manager who also seemed to have noticed the girl. To make matters worse, the manager was angry and packing heat. Crap, totally don't need this building turning into a crime scene today. It'd waste months of planning if this place is swarming with cops after the office workers go home.

Moving quickly, Kit intercepted the girl before she got to the door. "Hey, sis!" She called out cheerfully. "Let's put your chips in my basket so we can check out together." Before the girl could respond, Kit had snagged the cheesy puffs, put them in her shopping basket, and got in line for the cashier.

Don't want to go further than that so Zouron can give his character a chance to respond if he's interested.

Before the girl could respond, Kit had snagged the cheesy puffs, put them in her shopping basket, and got in line for the cashier.

Kitty jumped over the fence surrounding the school and landed lightly on the other side, sticking her hands deep into her pocket and glancing back, excellent no one noticed the dumb cow and go talk to the principle instead, adjusting the cloth wrapped Siege breaker to fit better on her back she headed down the street.

A couple of hours passed and the fun of skipping class was wearing off, Kitty passed a McD and felt her stomach growling and started to search her pockets, Come on, please let there be a few coins left she thought in vain and after a moment came up with an empty packet of chewing gum, Well... this sucks, then smiling to herself as she spotted the drugstore, Time to go shopping she thought with a small giggle of excitement while crossing the street and entering the store bending down low to let Siege breaker clear the door.

The store wasn't very busy, it could be a problem but in the end timing was everything, I just need a few seconds fatso, just turn around for a moment and I will have what I want Kitty smiled to herself and saunters over to the magazine stand and picked up the latest issue of Seventeen and flicked through it waiting for her moment, finally the guy turned away Kitty quickly popped the magazine back on the rack and grabbed a bag of cheesy puffs and stuffed it under her jacket then quickly turned towards the door and headed out feeling giddy with excitement, just as she starts reaching out for the door a lady grabs her by the arm and without a second thought Kitty spins towards the lady reaching for siege breaker. Before Kitty had completed the movement the lady had taken the cheesy puffs and dropped them in the shopping basket with the words: "Let's put your chips in my basket so we can check out together." Kitty blinked confused once then spotted the manager and grind her teeth, letting her arm fall to her side and instead gave the lady a bright smile, what's her game? Well let's see how far I can take this, then gets in line next to the lady with the words, "Al right sis, did you get the cokes?"


F Amberite (Outsider Native) Quickling (Tiny Fey) Uncarnate - Time Thief

Show time!


"Grab what you want from the case in front of the register and a diet for me," Kit says returning the girl's smile. "And not a word of this to mom. She'd kill me if she found out I was buying you junk food." The woman knew the girl was playing her, but it was nice to meet a fellow player.

After Kit had paid for their purchases and she'd gone outside, she tossed the bag with the chips and soda to her new "sister". "Not bad, kid. You've got good hands and think fast," she says. "By the way, I'm Kit. Next time you might want to leave that pack at home, it uh... really stands out."


Kitty catches the bag with a smile almost bordering on a laugh when she hears the name, then pulls out the soda and removes the lid, sipping the content, "Thanks for the soda and chips Kit, so what's your play? Any good score coming up or got some heat on you?" Kitty screws the lid back on the soda and lets it fall into the bag and seems pretty unconcerned with the consequences then again she just got away clean.


Was I talking that street smart when I was her age? Kit smiles as she opens the diet soda. "Don't talk about details in the open, but yes and yes. I have something in the works. Something that could have been screwed up if you'd gotten into it with the store manager. And I guess I've had heat on me so long I think they might have forgotten, but I doubt it." Kit doesn't know why she's being so open with this kid. It can't just be that she reminds Kit of what she was like ten years ago.

"Hey, I know this is totally weird, but I'd like you to have this," Kit swipes a cheesy puff from the bag and puts a business card in the kid's pocket. The card just has the name Reynard and a phone number on it. "Give me a call sometime if you want. It was kind of fun having a fake kid sister to play with."


Seems the fun is up, lets see if I can get a bit more out of this.... Kit gives Kit an innocent smile, the fake kind that is, while watches the card gets put in the bag then says "Don't worry your secret is safe with me, I only talk when I get hungry or bored and I am sure I can cure any boredom I might feel I'll just go see a flick." Kit theatrically searches her pockets then looked up with feigned surprised,"Oh darn and here I thought I had a 20 to spare, I'll guess I just have to go find someone to talk to to make sure I don't get bored."


Kit laughs at the kid's brashness. "That almost sounds like you're trying to blackmail your big sister," she says with a smile. "That wouldn't be very nice. Even if I paid you, I'd have to worry about you blabbing. No, that would be nasty game for everyone and someone would wind up getting hurt. But I do like your style kid. If I didn't have plans, I'd go to the movie with you."


Kitty grins, "Alright let's go, oh just so you know... I'm Kit." then she heads towards to the local movie theater, snatching the cheesy puffs from Kit and opening it before eating a handful of the chips.


"That's a pretty name, Kit," says while she ponders the odds that the kid shares her name. Then she realizes they're walking to the cinema. "Hey! I said I'd go with you if I didn't have plans, but I do have..." Kit gives a good natured shrug. "Oh, well. As Papa said 'The best laid plans of mice and men always wind up FUBARed.' At this point, another hour or two of casing the joint wouldn't help."

The movie wound up being some mindless action flick about masked men in spandex trying to save the world from a mad man. As if that would ever be real. Afterwards, Kit looks at the girl and asks, "So, do I have to worry about your mom or dad getting mad that you spent a school day watching movies with a stranger?"


Kitty shrugs, "They are not my parents," stretching slowly while yawning then adjust the huge bundle on her back slightly the massive thing briefly connecting with the walkway with a metallic hum like that of a tuning fork being struck Kit ignores it and stuffs her hands deep into her pockets and stares at the sky, "They are going to scream at me and I will pretend to listen, just like all the others, doesn't matter they don't care about me and I don't care about them I just want my freedom."


Looking skyward with the girl, Kit briefly wonders what the other Kit is looking for out there. "Freedom," she says quietly. "Freedom's great, but I can't shake the feeling it's going to be taken from me at any minute. Good luck keeping yours, Kit."

"Whoah, I'm getting way too somber," Kit gives her companion a grin. "And it's getting way too late. I seriously have work to do tonight. I'd love to tell you about it some time and I'd love to hear about what you've got in that huge pack of yours. Give me a call sometime." Kit waives at the girl and starts walking away.
