Fantastico! So...about this interview thing: how exactly does that work?
Ah yes. It's not an interview. It's a face-to-face contact. Once the characters are made and aproved, I will start making the scenes. You will be placing your character in a casual public place where they will not feel as threatened, but without anyone they know around. They will be approached by one of the three people played by me (Allen's assistant Sarah will be like an NPC, but only played by me.) I will go down the list, writing with one person at a time, their being recruited. The scene will end when the person decides they'll go to the meeting, however long it takes them to decide.
Sounds reasonable XD.
I don't care what happens with posting limits, since I'll easily adapt to whatever you decide, so I guess me voting would be pointless.
Just to clarify, though, you'll be initiating each contact encounter for the 1x1 scenes?
Actually, I uncall any fire based power :) It's all yours Zetoni.
I was wondering if I could create a guy, with the ability to make people go to to sleep. This ranges from a light nap to just full out unconcious level. Of course, he would need practice with this power, since with this sleep inducing ability, he is also able to see people's dreams. That is to say, when people are asleep, he can watch any image the person is dreaming up. Nightmares included. He has heard of the mysterious "Dream Realm", which allows himself to enter into the dream himself. With one catch--he has to be asleep himself, and if he is harmed in anyway, or even killed, he will also be in real life.
If this is too powerful, or not enough weaknesses or whatever, I would like some suggestions on how to shape it into your criteria :) Because if I can't have the dream ability...
I will make a girl with the power of shapeshifting (I don't believe anyone has wanted that power yet..?). This is a pretty straightforward ability, since she can shapeshift into any animal. Stirctly real animals, and stricty animals she has seen. The larger the animal, naturally, the more energy it takes away from her. In one case, when she tried transforming into an elephant (long story) she hardly lasted two seconds before she crumpled back into her regualar human form, and was unconcious for several days.
If you want me to limit to the number of animals she can transform into, I'd have the animals be a wolf, and eagle and a snake.
Just let me know what you think :)
Just my opinion, Nacho, but I LOVE the dream idea. I think it would be really cool!! You really seem to have thought it out, which I guess I didn't do as much because the power I chose is sort of basic and widely known, so.... Yeah, I just think that it's a cool power. =D
Honestly both characters would fit up to my requirements, I believe. So long at, in the case of the guy, you make sure the control of his ability it very limited in the beginning. But also, as an alternative, you could take away most the elements of the ability and allow them to surface during the training.
I say, if you're okay with having a second character, and if we have room later, you have both. But for now, you can choose one and have them.
And since your character has an aproved power, you can go ahead and move on to the step of making a skellie.
With the 1x1 scenes, I will tell you when I'm ready to start writing the scene with you. You will be responsible for setting the location and state of the character, but the contact itself will be initiated by me.
What I had in mind, is that my character would be able to benefit the team by increasing the success rate in small ways. It's not like it'd be assured of happening, but the likelihood of it happening would be increased. When he comes to terms in controlling it, he'd be able to direct whatever luck he was dealing with a certain way.
In a fight, he can wield his 'bad luck' towards the oponnent, causing inconveniences to happen and increase the chance that he'd be able to fight back, or something.
Over all, I was thinking of increasing success, I guess. And the bad luck, until he learns to control it better, is kind of a stepping stone for him- something he needs to be able to get over in order to help the team, and the cause. Is there anything in specific that you wanted to know? Because everything worked out so darn well in my head, but applying it to words just isn't working so well. I just have this feeling that I can make it work.
I hate to say no to this power, since it really is a good idea and everything. Just...I'm looking at it from the point of view of the recruitors. Would they find his powerful useful enough to risk contacting him?
But then, I guess my biggest problem, now that I think of it, is what if we don't have enough characters to make up for the fact some of them only help in a small way? In the end, I guess I'm actually going to accept the power. You, like nacho, are ready to post your character skellie.
I was thinking, the potential is there, you know? I don't want you to pressure you into accepting the power. I figured he wouldn't be able to provide a large amount of help in the beginning, but through training, he could be more useful.
Thank you, though, for accepting it. I'll try my hardest to make this work.
I personally think it would be really cool if Roseatta's character was seen as some sort of goodluck charm and other than that, basically useless.
I do believe she mentioned the power being affected by the character's general emotions, though? Haha, I can just see that becoming even funnier. Imagine everyone trying to cheer him up in the middle of a fight, lolz!!
Regarding character skellies...could you like give me a general estimate to about when you'll want them up, because I haven't really actually started.
I'm just being picky is all. I'm fine with the power. It could be useful. I can see it working.
When I approve your power, that is when you need to make your skellie.
For instance, Roseatta's character could affect things like the weather (good weather, bad weather) and the presence of the kid could control the amount of "bad ways" a plan could go. Say GOHST made up some crazy plan to stop someone or do something, only it was a very iffy plan an a lot of things could possibly go wrong with it. Roseatta's character would lower the amount of variables in the plan.
Just throwing some random ideas out there to increase the creative thinking level here, lolz.
Oh lolz. I just saw your post.
Regarding my power: do you think there's anything specific I need to tweak?
Name: Rachel Steel.
Appearance: Rachel is short and patite, standing at less than 5' and weighing under 100lbs. She has straight, chin length black hair with blonde highlight. Her eyes are dark brown, sometimes seeming almost black. Her face is oval, and her eyes are almond shaped. Her skin is pale with light freckles over her cheek bones and nose. She has a straight, white smile, with delicate grace of a musician and dancer. Her size and aura of being delicate and graceful do not at all match her personality. On her arms and on her right calf, she has scars from the crash.
Clothing: Ray always wears jeans, no matter the weather or where she's going. Her favorite clothes are a mix of simple t-shirts, halter tops, and turtlenecks. She has a very large collection of fedoras both old and new, and wears a different one almost every day. Due to really bad eye-sight, she wears glasses, black square-framed glasses almost all the time.
Personality: Rachel is a little ball of fire when she wants to be. She doesn't take being talked down to or disrespected. She acts strong and stubborn, although she is slightly insecure. She has a certain level of pride and independence that can get her into trouble. She can be patient and friendly at times. She hates controlling people with her ability, and she loves music and animals.
Bio: Rachel grew up with her parents, a loving mother, and a hard-working father. Her entire family was always extremely protective of her. This meant she rarely had friends, and did all her schooling at home. She never really was bothered by not having any friends or general social life, taking up music and dancing. At age 12, her and her parents were in a terrible car crash. Her parents died, and Ray discovered her power then. From that point forward, she suffered severe migraines, depression, and random violent outbursts.
Her uncle, Allen Steel, took her in, her legal guardian. He went ahead and started to prepare her in the case of needing a new heroes project. Rachel cleaned up eventually, getting things under control. She promised Allen she'd use her powers to help, even if she hated using them.
Abilities: Rachel has a form of telepathy, able to communicate mentally with others, as well as hear stray thoughts from the people around her. It is still developing, but she can affect the minds of others, placing thoughts in their minds and making them think it was their own thoughts. Perfected, this could become close to mind control.
Weaknesses: Like a jedi mind trick, the stronger minded are more immune to her persuasive ability. She has to hear a person talk, or hear a good sample of their thoughts before she's able to affect them. Also, if her mind becomes crowded, or someone else tries to read/affect her mind, she will get a terrible pain in her head, and sometimes pass out.
Other: She has a pet cat, named Boot. She got it after her parents died. Also, she has absolutely no dating experience, and may be known to latch on to the first mildly attractive boy she sees.
I already approved your power, onlyasking you to take the note that her power will need to be weak until the training perfects it.
Oh, I just thought you hadn't because you said "when" lolz. Okay then, Imma gonna go make a skellie and then come back, post it, and be ready for you to tare it apart XD.
I'm sorry, I said "when" because I didn't remember approving it. I actually had to go back and double check.
Your characters can always make me smile, and even laugh. I believe Reve is up to standards, and now all you need to do is make his file.
EndlessSilenceOfMidnightDeath <that's quite a mouthful, I just had to write it down *grin*:
Lolz, it's fine. I'm actually very presumptuous a lot of the time XD. Okay, so I'm going to give you a heads up and say I'm probably not going to have my character skellie up today, and if I do, it'll probably be late at night. It takes me a while to iron those kinds of things out. That and I'm not even sure if I wanna go female or male...
That's fine. You have until Summer to get your character sorted out :P No rush. Take all the time you need.
