I like the flight machine as a "power". With a very strong missile attack he would complement Lizardman's close combat prowess perfectly.

By the way, I think you are there on the build - PL7 is 105 points and I don't see that you are over any of the restrictions?
Yep, I forgot that the previous game I applied for was PL 8, but with 100 PP instead of the standard 120 PP. Thanks for the catch! I still have to adjust for power limits though.

Part of why Val's powers were almost literally only-half-dreamt-up in comparison to the rest of her. xD

I'm still here, but I had a bunch of chores, so I am only now getting to look over the powers lists again. Between Scrapper and Gremlin, I think we have the tech side already covered, but hey, why not have multiple people geeking out over gadgets, right? Gremlin's good with computers and Scrapper seems good with "building a time machine in my garage" type stuff. I think have a vehicle mechanic might still be necessary.

Nice to be potentially gaming with you again!

You too.

Edit: I think maybe if I go to bed, I'll think up something else when I'm half-asleep.

Edit 2: figured out a few routes.

Ooooo! I found a theme for my character and her personal arc: control and automony. That will help direct my creative juices.

Name: Sassa Jansen "Randgrid"
Age: 50 and thousands of years old
Concept: Changing into an eternally young strong and powerful being while also trying to keep true to yourself
Personality: Sassa is gentle and kind, she has a strong moral center, tends to be timid and shies away from many things. That said, she does want to help. Randgrid is a thousand year old warrior her moral code is that of the ancient Norse people, she's violent, lustful, bostful and full or herself.

Background: Sassa was on a break with her girlfriend in Norway. She'd decided to take a simple tour of the US and figured she and her girlfriend would reconnect after their break. Maybe do some therapy and work things out. Then the disaster happened and the world changed. She was stuck in the US and she happened upon an ancient sword and picked it up. She transformed into Randgrid then and there, a thousands of years old battle maiden and chooser of the slain.

When she transformed back she was herself again, well more like a twenty year old version of herself she's eternally beautiful and with just a thought she can always summon Randgrid again. She can become the powerful winged woman capable of fighting nearly any battle and yet every time she changes she looses more of herself, but how can she not change when the power of a Valkyrie is needed.

left-aligned image

Physical Description: Six foot five with flowing white hair, golden eyes, shining silver full plate, sword and shield with wide black wings. She looks just like the ancient tales suggest a Valkyrie ought to look.


Physical Description: Sassa is nearly six foot with long brown hair and blue eyes.

Complications:
- Personality change: Sassa is slowly becoming Randgrid and it is very hard to keep her own personality.
- Secret identity: When Sassa is not Randgrid she loses a great deal of her powers
- Morality: Randgrid's morality comes from an ancient warrior culture. She does not understand modern morality.

RP Sample: An explosion rocked the ground causing Sassa to stumble. She hoped it wasn't something too dangerous, hoped she wouldn't have to make the change. She moves quickly to look and her hopes are dashed, a gasoline truck has hit an apartment building and everything is engulfed in flames. A large creature is on the street as well attacking everyone. Even if the fire department could get through the traffic they couldn't deal with whatever that creature was. Someone else would help...no...people were dying out there she couldn't just watch people die because she was afraid of loosing herself.

Randgrid was already in the back of her mind too, demanding to be released, demanding her moment to face the creature and slay it in mortal combat. That just made things worse though since Sassa hated the idea of killing things. Still, was there a real choice here? No...no..she closed her eyes and brought Randgrid forth by drawing an unseen sword from her back.

The Valkryie flapped into the air and smiled. She didn't make any speeches, didn't posture, she just flew towards the creature sword held high and a battle song in her heart. It would die and she would send it to Valhol. There was no doubt in her mind.

Extra Credit: Clearly I like this idea of the conflict Sassa has between herself and Randgrid. I want to explore it and see if they can come to some middle ground or if, in the end, Randgrid will mostly win out. Also, I wanted to explore just what having a more real to legend Valkryie might be like in a heroic setting. Beyond that I'd like to have fun writing with others.

Tentative interest. As a M&M newbie, I'll see if I can make the concept I have in mind work.

If you need help figuring out how to make it work, let me know. You can also probably just ask here, I'm sure a lot of people here would be able to help.

A question about setting and descriptors: since every super seemingly spawned from the Orange Sky Event, should the Source descriptor be assumed to be same for everyone?

Also interested in the answer to this. I have a couple of concepts and I'm not sure which would be most appropriate.

Okay, I think I could use some help

Let's say I want to make a character with variable ability scores, so someone who can be vary smart one moment, strong the next and so on. I was thinking about a Dynamic Array with each Alternate Effect being an Enhanced Trait, one for each Ability. Problem is, if the points pool is equal to the maximum of the primary effect, then it'd be quite low for ALL the abilities. At the same time, with multiple Dynamic Arrays there wouldn't seem to be an automatic way to satisfy all the PL caps.

Another doubt, this time about Strength Damage: let's say I want also a modifiable weapon, that could become a stick/sling/etc. so I guess another Array, and would like for it to be Strength based. How could I tie the cost per rank of Extras (ranged, multiattack etc.) if my Strength is variable in the first place (since from what I understand, the cost would also include the baseline ranks from Strength)?
