Updated my sheet format to hopefully make it a little more concise. Gonna do a deep dive into the Teragen Primer and start working out a backstory!

I'm going with Fabricator as a Nova Name assuming I don't have to switch the concept. I think he's going to be a bit of a Nova supremacist so he probably won't have a human name that he goes by.

Professor Singularity sounds like a gravity controller.

My character is mostly done. I'm bringing him over from an older Aberrant game that I was involved in.

How do you want me to handle the super inventions? I need to do some rolls. Then I can send you the character sheet.

Ok sounds good.

Keep in mind that Aberrant has “gadgets” and “inventions.”

Gadgets are one-of-a-kind super-science devices. They are fueled by quantum energy. As such, they can violate the laws of physics, but only novas can use them. Mechanically speaking, gadgets mimic quantum powers.

Inventions are improvements on existing technologies; they work within scientific principles and can be mass produced for everyone to use. This is where flying cars, nanotech, and other stuff comes from. Inventions are how many mega-intelligent novas make their money. But mechanically, inventions take a lot more time and effort to develop.

You can't do any rolls on this thread. However, once the game is approved, I'll create a thread for you to get your rolls done.

In regard to gadgets, there is a background in the Directive book called "Equipment." It's intended for Directive characters to represent the fancy gear that they can requisition. In your case, you can take it to represent how many completed gadgets that you start with. Each dot will represent a gadget (so three dots in the Equipment background means you begin the game with three gadgets). Hope that helps.

I'm going for a slightly campy, mad scientist type of alias. But a gravity manipulator device is something I might whip up one day.

Fabricator
Birth Name: Paul Taylor
Paul was born in suburban Metro-Detroit. He did ROTC through college to get his engineering degree and went into the army corps of engineers after college. He served two tours and then went back to school to get his PhD. in Engineering. He did a few years in the private sector before he started teaching.
Nova Name: Fabricator
Because of his scarring and the nature of his aberrations it is fairly difficult for Paul to hide his identity. As of a few years ago he had Fabricator added as a legal alias and routinely signs documents with the name. If someone yelled Paul in the street he probably wouldn't even look at this point.
Nature: Survivor
Eruption: House Fire

After his time in the Army Paul found time to date and eventually marry the girl of his dreams. When they started dating he didn't realize that Becky was actually the Nova "Girl of Your Dreams" in he Dormant civilian identity. That didn't bother him really her powers were a bit invasive but seemed pretty fun for "recreation" and who didn't want a super-humanly gorgeous wife? He has his own Eruption when an Anti-Nova group fire bombed his home. The uncontrolled surge of his new powers were able to put out the fire, but even then Becky died of complications from the fire and Paul was severely burned across most of the left side of his upper body.
Allegiances: Teragen

Appearance: Paul lived a fairly active life style and while he never seemed to take on muscle mass he has always had a lot of muscle definition. He keeps his head and face shaven since the burns on his face keep hair from growing on the other side any way. He typically wears a baseball cap to hide some of his head and he wears sunglasses or lens-less glasses to disguise his lack of eyebrows. Otherwise he tends to dress in fairly utilitarian clothes; comfortable jeans, boots, typically a light jacket but always long sleeves even if it is warm out.

The way his aberrations manifested whenever he is injured enough to break the skin the barred flesh and muscle appears to be mechanical. The aberration is compounded by the burn scars on his upper body so he kind of always looks like a Terminator with machine bits apparent under molten patches of skin. His mental powers have also caused his brain to swell pretty outrageously. He has two long tails of brain matter and fat extending from the back side of his head the aberration seems to protect itself well enough with a layer of fat and skin calloused almost to the point of being chitinous and when they have been cut or scrapped in the past they appear to be thick electrical conduits under the skin, due to his other aberration.

When he's doing nova work he is perfectly capable of generating whatever costume or armor he needs at the time.

I'm not quite done. I need to double check my numbers. I changed some things and wrote it down really fast. I also need to include my point expenditures. But that's the gist of it.

I can fairly trivially create a cubic meter of hydrofluoric acid (as seen on Breaking Bad).

There are vanishingly few ways for me to be better at this (more Int and Mega-Int specifically). But it is still really hard for me to make a car.

I could have converted a lot of my ancillary Mega-Attributes but the way I have it I make a damn good super assassin (Summon rifle multi-action super-aim/Shoot). A created Sniper Rifle doesn't even leave a bullet or shell casings behind!
