    Default OOC Avengers: Heroic



    Welcome to the Avengers Heroic OOC Thread!

    Please claim your speech colors now. As the Watcher, I claim MAGENTA and Sienna for reasons beyond your comprehension! (actually they are just unpopular colors).

    Please post your character's name and which rulebook you will be using him/her from (so I have a reference). We will not be using any new Milestones.

    When you make IC posts, please make sure to put your character's name at the top of the post (it helps everyone remember who is who).

    When in a tense scene/combat, please post who you select to go next in initiative.

    There is a link to the Combat Tracker in my sig. We will use that to keep track of who has acted thus far, how much stress/trauma each person has taken and any complications/Assets they may have. When you take stress, update the tracker to reflect that. So, say Emma took d4 emotional stress, then Dancing Owlbear would put "d4" under emotional stress. Don't worry, the background color will change as the dice increase in size.

    That should be everything.

    IC incoming.

    Surprisingly, Black Widow only has ONE datafile: Breakout. So obviously, using her Breakout Datafile.

    Claiming RED, since she's a commie her colors are actually Black and Red.

    Can't wait to start this. MHR has it's faults, but it's a fun system overall.

    Uh...which books are which? XD.

    And I'm going with X-23. There's even pre-established conflict with Emma Frost, so bonus points for making the Avengers fight with each other.

    I would say Logan keeps Laura out of the big fight because, yeah, he's like her dad - someone needs to watch the house while he's gone, so to speak, they trust each other, and he's being protective.

    And I claim black as my color. Naaah, just kidding. Indigo, then, for a suitably dark personality.

    I will use Gray for Emma, because its the closest I can get to White without it being unreadable. Plus.. gray morality or something.

    I, admittedly, haven't kept up with X-Men for a while now. What's the conflict between Emma and X-23?

    Taken directly from Wiki:

    Decimation

    After the events of House of M and Decimation, X-23 was one of the few mutants to retain her powers. X-23, having previously left the institute off-panel, returns to the X-Mansion at Wolverine's insistence. Laura is assigned a room with fellow mutant student Sooraya Qadir. She begins to develop an attraction towards Julian Keller, aka Hellion, protecting him while participating in holographic combat simulations created for members of the student body by David Alleyne, formerly a mutant codenamed Prodigy.

    After Jay Guthrie appears bloodied and beaten on the doorstep of the institute, Emma Frost has the powered students compete in a free-for-all brawl, with those deemed to be the best performers assigned to a new team of trainee X-Men. Despite Frost's attempts to omit her, X-23 is among those students who excel during the exercise, and also receives unexpected aid from Hellion, whom Frost has instructed to take out X-23 from the battle first. She is placed on the team with Mercury, Dust, Hellion, Elixir, Rockslide, and team leader Surge by Cyclops, who thwarts Frost's attempts to keep her off the team by pulling rank.

    As the depowered students and staff are leaving the school, their bus is bombed by anti-mutant religious zealot Reverend William Stryker. X-23 overhears Dust talking to Icarus, who had fled the Mansion. Dust intends to meet Jay, but Laura warns her that its a trap, and takes Dust's place. Donning Dust's abayat and niqāb, X-23 is shot upon arriving at Stryker's compound. Laura returns to the Mansion and singlehandedly kills three Purifiers who have incapacitated Surge, Hellion, and Emma Frost.

    When Surge receives a distress call from Forge, X-23 accompanies the New X-Men. Although the team disables the Nimrod unit, X-23 is grievously wounded and is unable to heal herself. In order to save X-23, Hellion convinces Emma Frost to unlock his telekinetic potential, increasing his powers (and thus, his speed) to a level thought impossible by a O.N.E. sentinel guard. This allows them to fly back to the mansion in time for Laura to be healed by Elixir.

    Also, I'm thinking that the Civil War datafile, from what I can tell, is the most updated/precise one for X-23 as I'll be playing her. I'm not going to have trouble roleplaying her, but I may need a bit of guiding on this system, XD. Anyone have Skype?

    It's amazing how fast Recruitment goes from the Big 16 to the IC when character generation becomes a non-issue.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I've done play-by-post for a couple years now and the Casting Calls/Interest Checks to submit and approve character builds take longer than the game actually lasts most of the time.

    Yeah, this is going to be fun.

    If at all possible, spending the 1pp to use Covert Specialty. Natasha is using her clearance to 'request' the things she mentioned:

    • Falcon getting increased Clearance
    • Laura becoming a 'tempoary' SHIELD agent
    • Emma getting a Psych Profile
    • Punisher getting Access to the Armory for weapons and equipment in the future
    • The report on the bases inventory


    In short, it's fluff. But the fluff is building blocks for future resource building.

    Okay, so I still need a copy of the Civil War datafile for X-23.

    And when creating an Asset...er, well, we're basically just taking a gun or a gadget, or what? I think Laura's supposed to have firearms training, as per her backstory, but I'd still need her Datafile.

    An Asset is a brief and situational benefit created to help other heroes by adding to their dice pools or as a means of giving you more dice in subsequent actions. You roll against the doom pool to create an asset and use your effect die to determine the size of the asset (minimum d6).

    Alright. Well, it looks like in this version, it's not saying anything about firearms or nonesuch. If I'm creating an asset, it'd probably be one to help out the team - and it'd have to be something distracting, enhancing, or...hmm.

    We can flub it a bit to make a cool - but situational (and perhaps one shot) - weapon. Maybe an energy shield? Maybe an upgrade for the Quinnjet? Remember, there's crazy good stuff in there. The sky is the limit.

    For intents and purposes, though, could she have, like...multiple items, but only one actually counts as an Asset?

    Alright. So, going over things.

    Clone Experiment: Basically get a bonus die whenever there's science involved with genetic alteration or replication.(?)
    Killer Instinct: Bonus die when going for blood.(?)
    Wolverine's Watchdog: Bonus die whenever something's involving Logan, as in personal affairs/vendettas.(?)

    Adamantium Claws: Die for using claws.
    Enhanced Strength: Die for using strength for something, such as lifting or beating the **** out of something.
    Superhuman Senses: A die to anything requiring precision, or dodging.
    Enhanced Reflexes: A die to anything involving dodging.
    Godlike Stamina: A die for anything requiring endurance.
    Berserk: Borrow a Doom Die to attack, and return it a step higher.

    Acrobatic Expert: Die to anything involving acrobatics. Dodging and running and tumbling.
    Covert Master: Die to being sneaky...?
    Combat Master: Die to anything involving combat.
    Menace Expert: Die when you're intimidating your foes.
    Expert and Master can be converted to multiple dice.

    And Milestones are roleplaying guides. By the by, that temporary S.H.I.E.L.D. Status doesn't affect anything, does it?

    You take two dice to make your total. If you spend a PP, you may add an additional die to the total (which is what Emma did).

    Also, you need to use another die to act as your affect die. The roll on this die doesn't matter, just the size of the die.

    So...

    Affiliation (Solo(only one person can use it)): (1d10)[4]
    Scene Distinction (Treasure Trove): (1d8)[4]
    Power Set/Power Trait (Feral Mutant/Superhuman Senses(to spot it behind everything else)): (1d8)[3]
    Specialties (Combat Master(it enhances combat capability)): (3d6)[11]


    You need to roll each of those 6's separately. The point of breaking down a specialty is to throw more dice, rather than rely on one big roll.

    Once you re-roll the d6's, we'll look at your numbers.

    If you can, I'd try to save that d10 for the effect die, thus making the exo-suit that much more powerful (but if your d6's come up bad, you'll want to use the d10 in your total, to ensure you beat the Doom Pool's roll).

    ADDITIONALLY: Most assets are used up after one roll. You can make the Exo-Suit persistent up to the end of the next action scene, if you spend a PP. In that case, you would have an extra Power called "Exo-Suit" which is powered at d(whatever your effect die is).

    Alright, then...so I've got a 4, and a 4, making it 8. And letting me use the d10 as an Effect Die? And I spend that pp now to make it persistent?
